A2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 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 COMMENTARYPence for presidentIndiana lawyer and Gov. Mike Pence, who tells us hes a Christian, a conservative and Republican, in that order, grew up in an Irish Catholic family of Hoosier Democrats who celebrated John F. Kennedy. Now, hes an evangelical Christian. A member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 12 years, he became governor four years ago. Before that, hed been a radio talk-show host in Indiana, calling himself Rush Limbaugh on decaf. Gov. Pence gained notoriety in 2015 when he signed the religious liberty bill in Indiana, giving business owners the right to discriminate against gays (and theoretically against anybody else) by not serving them. That law was amended, but it reveals his character and thinking. I mention all this because Gov. Pence may have a better shot at being president someday than most vice presidents, if Donald Trump is elected. Mr. Trump, now 70, appears florid, overweight and unhealthy to me, which is never good in high-stress males. Hes so unpredictable, in addition, that he could arguably be characterized as unstable. I think he has a lot of fun, though, and I support fun. In fact, fun should be legally required for every candidate from any party. Congress must act immediately to establish a Candidate Fun Test guaranteeing that no purse-lipped puritans sneak through the wire of our standards into positions of leadership. But when fun is in short supply when things get rough, as they inevitably will no evidence exists to suggest Mr. Trump wont just pull out. He could resign the presidency, declare bankruptcy, sue somebody, or retreat to his gold and marble bedroom in Manhattan, disappearing into a crevasse of comfort, never to be seen again.If Americans elect Mr. Trump, and if he were to die or to decide sleeping in the White House is no longer any fun, Gov. Pence would then become the nations 46th president.Such an event could affect Floridians in particular. Keep in mind, this is the springboard state from which George W. Bush, who dances at police funerals, twice managed to capture the presidency. On one of those occasions, Mr. Bush even lost the nations popular vote. But he had Florida, thank God (Mr. Bushs god). Here, Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton are now said to be running neck-and-neck. For one thing, Florida produces about 90 percent of the winter tomatoes Americans consume, along with vast quantities of citrus and other produce. A great deal of that food has been grown and harvested traditionally by illegal farmworkers. They work cheap, after all. Gov. Pence would end that accommodation, apparently. Hes an immigration conservative, which means he backs closing our borders to non-citizen farmworkers even in the so-called guest worker program, which he voted against. He also favors ejecting any illegals he can find anywhere else, including those lying in hospitals resting up from the last harvest. He once supported a failed bill to require hospitals to become de facto immigration officers by reporting illegals to the authorities.None of that bothers me, per se. Immigration is a legitimate policy issue on which we can we disagree, debate and decide. This column reflects the healthy process of debate. Toxic to the American way of life, however, is the unjustifiable, unethical and unconstitutional religious discrimination Gov. Pence is willing to accept in Mr. Trump, and to practice himself. Not only is it anti-American, its also championed by many other conservatives, including Newt Gingrich. Theres no excuse for it. Gov. Pence, for example, insisted Syrian refugees seeking asylum to the U.S. should not come into Indiana. And Mr. Trump and Mr. Gingrich have called for a test to determine which Muslims of any national stripe should be allowed to remain in the country whether or not they are American citizens. By that logic, the government should also test Catholics to insure that none of them still believe in the principal of the famous Catholic crusader, King Louis of France: Either convert non-Catholics with the word, he insisted, or run a sword through their bodies as far as it will go and send them home to God. But test notions violate Amendment VI of the United States Constitution, ratified in 1791.These are the words of that bold American amendment: The Senators and Representatives and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States. No religious test shall ever be required. Its a timeless American notion. So, as much as Gov. Pence has publically admired President Kennedy from time to time, he seems to have forgotten what the man actually stood for. He stood for the Sixth Amendment. Kennedys speech on Sept. 12, 1960, to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association of Protestant Ministers they were skeptical of his ability to lead the country as a Catholic remains as relevant in 2016 as it was in 1791 or 1960. Heres what he said, in part (reading the rest is now your obligation): I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant, nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials; and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against once church is treated as an act against all. An act against one church is treated as an act against all. That is not the view of either Donald Trump or Mike Pence. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONA long, hot summerSummer is supposed to be the time you get to do things that elude you all year long because you work for a living. When June appears and summer officially begins, we try to cram into an abbreviated space all the pleasures denied because we have neither the time nor the money nor the choice to do otherwise. I discovered early in life this is why vacations are called vacations. It is a temporary release from the imprisonment of adult circumstances. There comes a time when there is never enough time. Every vacation beckons us to cherish what we have the least of. Meanwhile, kids wait impatiently for their parents to catch up to fill their own enforced leisure with summer adventures. They are hostages to adult commitments until a parent gets a green light from an employer to take some time off. Even so, the earned release is either a cup half full or half empty. Studies say more than half of all Americans dont use all the leave they earn, and when they check out, they dont unplug. Smart phones go on vacation, too. Despite efforts to resist, one call or message alert is usually enough to take a vacationer and their vacation down a rabbit hole, back to the world they left behind. Anyone with a digital device and access to Wi-Fi knows they are on a slippery slope to 24/7 availability. A vacation is no longer the mental escape to a pleasure island it used to be. We just cant help ourselves. As for the kids, the digital age has transformed their options, too. They can go solo in pursuit of recreation without ever having to leave home or share human companionship on their ventures. Virtual realities are readily available as an alternative to the real thing. The technology allows kids to simulate some of the exotic experiences that a real vacation supplies, not all of it desirable. This includes first-person shooter games and violent fantasies for the young at heart who like the idea of their vacations in hell. Nonetheless, a traditional vacation still holds sway. Who doesnt enjoy time to recreate for an extended period away from home, engaged in activities involving real people in different places? Taking a traditional vacation is to experience reality as it actually is. Thats pretty exciting just on the merits of the possibilities that unfold when our routines are briefly abandoned. Those possibilities were the source of my own anticipation. I remember waiting, waiting for school to be out, knowing a summer vacation was in my future. The tether that kept my parents tied in place would be temporarily broken. A vacation was our excuse for doing things together we seldom did as a family at home. It broke the tedious monotony of performing as you were expected to perform, day after day and month after month, a train traveling a seamless rail broken only by stops for the occasional holiday. A vacation was an exclamation point appearing in an endless sea of periods and semicolons. It was uncharacteristic of my parents to surrender to taking some time off. But when the door shut behind us, the finality of leaving assured, we sighed deeply, grateful for the transfusion in spirit we received. The rut we occupied in our bondage to home was left behind. I imagine my parents longing for a vacation in remembrance of the carefree days when their time was their own. When we disembarked, the furrows in their brows would soften and disappear as the distance increased between them and our home. They knew their release from captivity was only temporary. They raised no expectations this grand life on the road would somehow extend beyond its planned horizon. It was a short sprint in a long race, competing with commitments that could not be outrun. As soon as we left, we knew the return to home was inevitable. Though our summer adventures were neither exotic or far-flung, we made the most of them. We loaded up and took to the road to see places and people with whom we had long-standing relationships and a home away from home. Though in familiar circumstances, strange and different was always on the menu. It was on vacation that I first sampled pizza, saw a grown woman fully naked, milked a Guernsey cow, rode in a convertible, hiked in the Smokies, watched my auntie wring a chickens neck, toured an aircraft carrier and reveled in a van Gogh hanging in the National Gallery. Such journeys were transformative, a window into a world Id only begun to experience. The summer of 2016 is at the halfway mark, but it is already a bleak and distraught departure from a summer spent replenishing ones cup of joy far from the chaos of the madding crowd. The weight of terror is heavy in the air. It bodes a long, hot summer ahead with no vacation for anyone in sight. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

After the controversial officerinvolved shootings in Baton Rouge, La., and Falcon Heights, Minn., Obama unloosed a series of statistics in his remarks in Warsaw, Poland, to show racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system in other words, racial bias by police, prosecutors and judges. Obama related numbers about disparate rates of police shootings, arrests and searches, among other things, without mentioning the single most important factor to put such figures in context, which is that blacks commit criminal offenses at higher rates than whites. No one likes to point this out, even though it is highly relevant information. It opens up whoever says it to charges of racism, or at least callousness in the aftermath of questionable police shootings. If anyone should be free to speak the truth, though, it should be President Obama, who imagines himself a coolly analytical figure on a historic mission to bind the nations racial wounds. Instead, he routinely gives a fundamentally distorted picture of the American criminal justice system and police shootings by eliding truths apparently too uncomfortable for him to say and his supporters to hear. African-Americans, Obama said in Warsaw, are arrested at twice the rate of whites. But African-Americans commit about 24 percent of violent crimes, even though they are 13 percent of the population. Of course they are going to be arrested at disproportionate rates. About half of murderers are black, and over 40 percent of killings of police officers are committed by blacks. This doesnt mean that there arent bad cops or that there isnt bias in policing, but the picture painted by Black Lives Matter of pervasive police predation, and an open season on blacks, is a politicized lie. A new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found racial disparities in lower-level use of police force e.g., police placing hands on civilians or pushing them into walls. But it concluded that on the most extreme use of force officer-involved shootings we are unable to detect any racial differences. If President Obama really wanted to try to cool passions on this issue, he would go even further in saying common-sensical things unwelcome to an inflamed Left. He might mention that the best way to try to avoid a police confrontation that might go tragically wrong is to comply with police orders and pursue a complaint or lawsuit later, outside the heat of the moment. He might note that just because an incident looks bad on an initial video, it doesnt mean the police did anything wrong, and no one should assume as much. He might remind Black Lives Matter that its initial understanding of what happened in the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was entirely erroneous. He could do all of this and still speak to his belief, and that of so many other blacks, that they have been targeted and treated unfairly by police. That he wont is an indictment of his political courage and intellectual honesty on an issue where he should be uniquely suited to lead.

Thats exactly what 10-year-old Alex McDonough did back in March, and now shes running her own business. Bow Wow Bandanas offers colorful bandanas designed to slide onto a pups collar. They sell for $3 and have allowed Alex to donate $300 more than half her total revenue to local animal rescue organizations. I like helping the dogs, she says. It makes me happy because I know theyve got food and theyre going to live. As soon as she figured out the design of her product, she could hardly wait to start mass-producing the bandanas. Out of the blue she was like, We should do this and raise money, her mother, Kristin McDonough, says. She had a little box and started selling them at school. Everyone wanted to buy them. Now, Alex is getting a quick education in business management and entrepreneurship. One local groomer ordered 30 bandanas to give to her clients. Aside from honing entrepreneurial skills, Alexs enterprise is teaching her some valuable lessons in giving back. While some people like her older brothers, according to her mother are encouraging her to raise her prices to maximize her revenue, Alex is happy keeping the products affordable so she can continue her charitable efforts on behalf of local animals. Shes learning (money) is not always what life is about, Ms. McDonough says. Bow Wow Bandanas are available to order on the companys Facebook page. To find out more, email kmcdonough@ embarqmail.com.

Goeller, 28, a trauma-room nurse with no intoxicants in her system, had struck a 60-year-old man on a busy, heavily lighted Tampa street at 11:45 p.m., cracking her windshield but drove on without stopping. What does she think she hit? asked the prosecutor. A deer? A bear? Responded Pearlman, Shes a scared girl in the middle of the night who doesnt have the life experience other people do.Bright ideas Picturesque Torrelodones, Spain (pop. 22,000), has 6, 000 pet dogs and apparently few conscientious dog owners, which town leaders say accounts for the nearly half-ton of litter that accumulates daily. The towns latest bright idea: installing a 7-foot-high, 10-by-10-foot brown, inflated plastic swirly in the center of town as a reminder to residents to pick up after their dogs. (Spains The Local reported in June that other towns have begun to tackle the problem as well, such as with DNA testing of dogs and street-scrubbing punishment for guilty owners.) British student Joshua Browder, 19, created an easy-to-use computer app to help drivers fight parking tickets they believe unjust and now reports that users have won 160,000 cases (out of 250,000), all in London and New York City, by following his question-and-answer chat interface at DoNotPay.co.uk. Browder said he was motivated to develop the app (which, as of now, is still free of charge) after himself getting about 30 tickets he says he did not deserve.The passing parade A bicycle thief was stopped on June 10 when the bikes owner and several other people chased him from the Wal-Mart parking lot in Eagle Point, Ore., drawing the attention of a passing rider on horseback (Robert Borba), who joined the chase and moments later (according to a report in Portlands The Oregonian) lassoed the man and restrained him until police arrived. A kite surfer on a Sussex beach south of London got into trouble on June 26 and was unable to float back to land until he was rescued by two Good Samaritans in kayaks. The saviors happened to be dressed as Batman and Robin for participating in the Shoreham Beach Superhero Paddle.Wait, what? Not only are almost all federal employees above average, they are nearly all superior workers, according to a June Government Accountability Office review of agencies personnel-rating results. (Yes, the review included the departments of Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security.) Most agencies use a 1 (unacceptable) through 5 (outstanding) rating system, and GAO found that 99 percent were rated either 5 or 4 (exceeds fully acceptable). Not many DUI stops result in attempts to locate the suspects chastity belt key, but the May 14 sobriety checkpoint stop of Curtis Eidam, 35, in Clinton, Tenn., did. Eidam was outfitted in red mesh seethrough hose, according to the police report, with a ribbon tied in his goatee, and also a little skirt (perhaps a tutu), when he told officers he needed his key, which happened to be on a necklace worn by his passenger (a highly intoxicated 44-yearold woman). Thus, Eidam was able to unlock and remove the chastity belt, which had been attached to his penis. (There was also a handgun illegal in Tennessee for an intoxicated person to carry.)Cognitive failureIn a May journal article, biologists from the University of Florida and Oklahoma State University found that more than 80 percent of survey respondents want package labels on all foods that have DNA content (even though, yes, all meat and vegetables have DNA). The Oklahoma researcher found earlier that about the same number want such labels to be mandatory. (Law professor Ilya Somin suggests playfully raising the fright level of those respondents by adding this alarm to the label they demand: Warning: Pregnant women are at very high risk of passing on DNA to their children.)Weird JapanClient Partners is only one of several Japanese agencies that supply rental friends to the lonely, for hours or days of companionship tailored to the needs of the socially challenged client (with two rules, however: no romance, no lending money). A writer for AFAR travel magazine interviewed several friends in June, one of whom explained: Japan is all about face. We dont know how to talk from the gut. We cant ask for help. Said the female friend (who offered a good-bye handshake to the interviewer): There are many people who havent been touched for years ... who start to cry when we shake hands with them.But its our policy!Good Samaritan Derrick Deanda is facing a $143 bill from paramedics in Elk Grove, C alif., after he, passing a car crash, jumped out to pull out a man and his three children (including a 2-year-old), who were trapped in the wreckage. A short time later the paramedics arrived and, noticing that Deanda had a cut on his arm (from breaking the cars window to free the family), bandaged him. Elk Grove has a policy charging all patients at a first-responder site $143 for the rescue, and Deanda received his bill in June.

And they want the rest of us to quit worrying about what we say to them. Dont worry about saying, See you later or did you see the ball game, or something like that, advises Mr. Hart, who started losing his vision to a disease called retinitis pigmentosa before he was 10. He moved through high school, college and into the working world as his sight diminished. He married, had children suffered a divorce. And now hes 47, a new arrival to the region who came from a job as a college counselor in Illinois to live near his parents in Naples, and to serve as a caseworker at Lighthouse of Collier Count y. Wit h sister branches around the state, Lighthouse is a nonprofit organization devoted to helping the sight-impaired or blind become independent, productive citizens, including doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, counselors, tech experts and so on. Little of Mr. Harts sight remains muted colors and dimming light, vague shapes still perceptible only if the light isnt t o o brigh t. How do you talk to a person destined not to see others? How do you treat a person who cant witness the dappled majesty of the spinning blue-green planet many of us may take for granted? Just be natural. Be yourself, Mr. Hart suggests pleasantly. You dont have to talk around the sightless, either, they point out, something Robin Garcia has learned from long and challenging experience. People will sometimes stand next to a blind person and talk to somebody else. Does she want a drink? says Mrs. Garcia, executive director of Colliers Lighthouse and a former software company executive and financial planner. Her son, Andrew Willson, was diagnosed with the same disease as Mr. Hart when he was 12. Now hes 27, a college graduate employed as an administrator in the Bursars office at FGCU. And now his mother has taken up his cause by joining Lighthouse. Let them know when someone is there, or not there, she adds. Let them know youre coming. Hi, its Robin. So they know. Speak to the person. Look at the person. Face them, address them personally. If youre going to leave, dont just walk away. Oftentimes, ask them if they want help. T he lad y s room is straight ahead, would you like me to help you? Lighthouse numbers among several other organizations up and down the coast that work directly or indirectly with the state Division of Blind Services, relying on limited federal and state funds and the generosity of donors to help the sightless become competent, comfortable citizens. Their services, free to the blind, are many. Ms. Dondero, for example, now 27, is the Lighthouse technology instructor for the visually impaired a determined and even adventurous young woman. Not only did she learn everything Lighthouse of Southwest Florida in Lee County could teach her, but she attended an intense residency program hosted by the Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Daytona, part of Floridas Division of Blind Services. Each working day for her, Ms. Dondero embarks from her home in North Fort Myers, rides a Lee Tran service called Passport to the Collier County line, then gets off that bus to catch another: a Para Transit bus dispatched to serve Collier Countys disabled. Sometimes those busses are not on time, so waiting becomes part of her life. Once aboard the Para Transit, she rides to her job at Lighthouse just off Airport Pulling Road North, or on some days to Immokalee. Finally she gets to work, helping others learn how to use computers and iPhones with adaptive technologies that dont require the use of a mouse, or for that matter of sight. She does it all with a cane and now a voiced GPS (a recent addition that can be a little temperamental, she says) but no dog. No dog because its such a huge res ponsibility all the time, and I didn t want to be tied down, she explains. A dog, like a good marriage, might happen someday, she surmises.Teaching awarenessEach of these men and women with many others dropped t heir routine tasks to become educators, last Thursday. Their only intent was to cross the street or the highway, en masse, and thus offer a quick course in the rules of the road to the sighted humans sitting behind the wheels of fast-moving, multi-ton vehicles in both Collier and Lee counties. To do this, they stood curbside at one location or another, took up slender white canes, and pointed them outward like Olympic fencers. But rather t han thrusting boldly forward, they paused. Listened. They may be blind, such caution suggests, but they arent foolish. Neither is Mitch Haley, a spokesperson for Lighthouse of Southwest Florida. We arranged to have the Lee Sheriffs Office supporting us on this, he admitted and not because the white cane ensemble needs the cops, but because the drivers do. Everybody on the curb knew a person could get run over stepping into traffic armed only with a white cane, no matter what the law says. But some drivers didnt, apparently even on such an auspicious day. As it turned out, Oct. 15 was National White Cane Awareness Day. That was probably news to most or all of the stress-buzzed drivers roaring down U.S. 41 and Pine Island Road in North Fort Myers, or to the maneuver-maestros jockeying for decent parking along Fifth Avenue in Naples. They were bound for jobs and beaches and shops and the lifestyle choices most people make unselfconsciously at least until they saw the white canes. Some ignored them; some slowed a bit and continued on; and some, finally, began to stop, the correct decision. Whether drivers know it or not, the law is not ambiguous about their responsibility to people with white canes. If you see a white cane like mine, no matter where I cross a road in the middle of the block or at the light, it doesnt matter you have to stop, explains Kathleen Hoover, 67, a downtown Fort Myers resident who began losing her sight about five years ago to a disease medical experts across the state and the country still have not been able to diagnose precisely. That was the same year her husband died of cancer. None of it has been much fun, she acknowledges quietly. And none of it has defeated her, either. On the contrary, Mrs. Hoover is a fighter. A career public relations and marketing expert with an affable, straightforward demeanor, now she serves as a spokeswoman for the Southwest Florida Council for the Blind. A Hoosier born and raised, shes become a fierce advocate for independence, a woman who makes only a single request of the wide world around her: Dispense with the pity. I hate it when people say, Im so sorry for you. I see this sight loss as a blessing. There are people I can relate to now I never could before. And the last thing I want to do is be taken care of. Blindness may be a blessing, just like independence, but that doesnt mean its easy. Crossing a road, for example, is one of the major challenges in Mrs. Hoovers life, training or no training, law or no law. When I want to cross, I put out my cane, and people drive right by it. So I listen until traffic (grows quiet), she explains. I often cross First Street or McGregor Boulevard in downtown Fort Myers, and its not unusual for many cars to go by before somebody stops. Sometimes they almost hit the cane. I t w as t o combat that blindness on the part of so many drivers that both the sightless and the sighted (volunteers wearing blindfolds) lined up to cross some of the busiest roads on the coast with white canes on National White Cane Awareness Day. Police and sheriffs deputies were not the only ones helping; mobility instructors from Lighthouse of Southwest Florida and Lighthouse of Collier County were also present to help. Mobility instructors teach safety practices in moving, both at home and in different public environments, as well as the use of technologies such as a voiced GPS. But they represent only one aspect of the widely varied programs Lighthouses deliver.Something for everybodyFor any struggling to see or for their family members or friends trying to understand what that means and offer well-grounded help programs may also include the following: daily skills training to cook, identify money, groom comfortably, and use technologies; job training, including how to get to and from work, specifically; and assistive technologies, including traditional ones such as large print and braille or contemporary additions. Clients learn to access email and the Internet with talking computers, and to use smart phones, tablets or GPS devises effectively.

But for people, a home is, however temporary, where the heart is. Many sleep in fields, in the woods or cars. Others find refuge at shelters. Some land in jail or crash on a couch or with friends or relatives but soon must move on. For most, it is a temporary condition that might last for a few months or years. For some, the streets will always be home. They are the institutionalized homeless, everywhere and nowhere at home. Many more live paycheck to paycheck, one illness or divorce or rent hike or job loss away from humility, true for more of us than would like to admit it. But its also true that one event cant fully describe why someone ends up sleeping at a park. The only rule is that the homeless can be anyone: parents and children, seniors and veterans, volunteers and criminals, a microcosm of society at large but with less money. Social workers say that finding them housing ASAP is key to addressing their needs. Its literally cheaper to house somebody first than to treat them in the streets, said Lee County social worker Johnnie Terrell.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2015 NEWS A9 all ages. A t Lighthouse Collier, says Ms. Garcia, those programs might include, day trips, picnics in the park, large-print cards and board games. They can learn about and play with magnifier s, CCTVs, talking computers and state-of-the-art computer equipment. They can meet and make new friends! Both in effect and literally, support from the state Division for the Blind exists from birth to death one of the only comprehensive Florida programs to offer that scope of support, says Janet Alterman, the rehabilitation supervisor at the regional Division for Blind Services. We have a blind babies program, a childrens program and a transition to college program, she notes. And when those children reach c ollege, we have a vocational rehabilitation program and an independent living program. Tha t one can be for new learners of any age, such as Mrs. Hoover Kathlee n was part of our independent living program, which trains people how to live as independently as possible, explains Ms. Alterman. How to pour liquids, how to cook and not get burned. How to mark your appliances and use them how to know if the oven is set at 350 degrees. People learn how to wash their clothes so they dont have their colors bleed into whites. How to iron, to clean, to get to and from grocery stores or banks. How to identify their m oney. And we contract those services through Lighthouse of Southwest Florida. The Daytona adventureBut thats not all, she adds. Theres a special residency program at the Rehabilitation Center for the Blind in Daytona an intense, 16-week course in which students live in dormitories and strive to become even more sophisticated and skilled than local programs can make them. On Saturday morning, Kathleen Hoover was loading her bags into a friends car and heading up the Florida highway to Daytona, an adventure that made her coincidentally excited and deeply anxious, she admitted just like it had almost 50 years earlier when she left home for the first time to take up college life, first at Butler University and l ater at Indiana University, from which she graduated. She begins the program this week, both for herself and as an advocate for the blind, she says. Florida Weekly will monitor her progress. It is important that society understands: although we are blind, our intellectual capacity is not affected and we can contribute significantly to humanity, she noted in a letter to friends explaining why she pushes herself so hard. Its a pragmatic decision for her, too, Mrs. Hoover says she needs and wants to learn more as her vision fades permanently a nd completely, which in time it will. And she will be ready for that time. I went to Lighthouse for a year and learned everything I could it was more of a lower level. Cooking classes, some technology courses. But after a year I was finished. At that time I was legally blind and I had a fair amount of eyesight. But I got to a point where I couldnt use my computer anymore. Thats going to change but the change wont come easily, apparently. Its a lot more intense, says Janet Alterman, describing the Daytona program. Although its available for anybody to apply to, a lot of our clients dont want t o go to Da ytona because they have family members or children to take care of. But there they will also learn assisted technology how to use software such as ZoomText that can be used with any program or computer, for example. Its a magnification software for people with low vision. O r JAWS, a speech program that turns the printed word into speech. This allows totally blind people to read anything that comes across the screen. All of the training has one purpose, a purpose taxpayers should be proud of, suggests Ms. Alterman: productivity. The vocational rehab program is one of the few programs that puts people back to work, thereby taking the tax dollar and recycling it back into the budget, she explains. Eighty percent of funding for the Division of the Blind comes from the federal government, and 20 percent from the state. That mounts only to about $600,000 for the regional office in Southwest Florida not enough to pay for more than about 30 percent of the activities of Lighthouse Collier or Lighthouse of Southwest Florida, their officials say. The rest comes from philanthropists. T hose ma y include such not e worthy organization as the Naples Winter Wine Festival, the Harris Law Firm, the Palms of Fort Myers, the Fort Myers Community Womens Club or many others. But they also include countless citizens up and down the coast, those who see clearly enough to care.

Dont worry about sayin g, See you later or d id you see the ball game, or something like tha t, advises Mr. Hart, who started losing his vision to a disease called retinitis pigmentosa before he was 10. He moved through high school, college and into the working world as his si ght diminished. He married, had children, suffered a divorce. And now hes 47, a new arrival to the r e gion who came from a job as a college c o unselor in Illinois to live near his par ents in Naples, and to s erve as a casewor ker at Lighthouse of Collier Count y.

Little of Mr. Harts sight remains muted colors and dimming light, vague shapes still perceptible only if the light isnt t o o bright. How do you talk to a person destined not to see others? How do you treat a person who cant witness the dappled majesty of the spinning blue-green planet ma ny of us may take for granted? Just be natural. Be yourself, Mr. Hart suggests pleasantly. You dont ha ve to talk around the sightless, either, they point out, something Robin Garcia has learned from long and challenging experience. People will sometimes stand next to a blind person and talk to somebody else. Does she want a drink? says Mrs. Garcia, executive director of Colliers Lighthouse and a former software company executive and financial planner Her son, Andrew Willson, was diagnosed with the same disease as Mr. Hart when he was 12. Now hes 27, a college graduate employed as an administr ator in the Bursars office at FGCU. And now his mother has taken up his cause by joining Lighthouse. Let them know when someone is there or not there, she adds. Let them know youre coming. Hi, its Robin. So they know. Speak to the person. Look at the person. Face th em, address them personally. If youre going to leave, d ont just walk away. Oftentimes, ask them if they want help. The ladys room is straight ahead, would you like me to help you?

Run in conjunction with Collier County Public School District, the program will serve 12 4-year-old children each week throughout the coming school year. The key element in the program is to work with both the child and the parent to encourage and foster the use of English and reading not only in the classroom, but in the home. The goal is to fully engage parents in their childrens education. All would agree that a childs education begins in the home. LVCC will hold a tutor training class from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, July 25. Lunch is included. Typically, volunteer tutors go to the school and meet with the parents or guardians for 30 minutes and read the childrens book they will read with the child. The child then joins the parent/ guardian and tutor, and together they read the book for about an hour and enjoy a related activity that reinforces what was read. The family gets to take the book home so the parent can read it again to the child before going to bed. By the end of an eight-week session a child has accumulated his or her own small library of 12 books. Since English is not the first language for 24 percent of students in Collier County, this program is critical to their future. For more information or to sign up for the volunteer training, call LVCC at 262-4448 or visit collierliteracy.org.More volunteer opportunities Founded in 1983 as Collier Countys original, nonprofit hospice, today Avow provides palliative care consultations for adults facing chronic or serious illness as well as hospice care and bereavement support services for children and adults.

The 2017 USOPC will be held April 23-30 at East Naples Community Park. It is anticipated that 1,000 athletes will compete on the parks 48 world-class courts. The inaugural USOPC event last April 26-May 1 brought in more than 800 participants and 10,000 spectators, and generated an estimated $2 million in direct tourism spending, according to USOPC founder and President Terri Graham. This is a great partnership, Ms. Graham says. Minto came on board for the inaugural event in 2016, and we are excited about continuing the relationship for years to come. William Bullock, senior vice president at Minto, says, The USOPC brings people from all over the world to see and experience the great lifestyle that Florida has to offer. Minto anticipated the growing popularity of pickleball based on feedback from our homeowners, and we have included pickleball courts in many of our newest communities. Considered to be Americas fastest growing sport, pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net.

Watch for signs of health dangers SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIronically, the first sign of dangerous heat stroke or heat-related illness is often the absence of sweat. As the temperature rises, your bodys natural cooling mechanism perspiration evaporates and helps to cool your body. But on those really hot and humid days, evaporation is slowed and your body runs a higher risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Virtually all heat-related illnesses are preventable, says Dr. James Roach, a board certified emergency medicine physician at Physician at Physicians Regional Healthcare System. Be extra careful when the heat index is 90 degrees or above, and always drink plenty of water or fluids with electrolytes when the heat index is high, Dr. Roach advises. If you must be outdoors, take frequent breaks inside or in the shade. Heat stroke can affect people of any age or fitness level he adds. Dont underestimate the danger. Heat exhaustion is a precursor to heat stroke. If you experience any of these symptoms, get out of the heat immediately and to a cool place, and slowly drink water or other fluids with salt or sugar: Pale skin Fatigue or weakness Dizziness or nausea Profuse sweating Rapid pulse or fast, shallow breathing Muscle weakness or cramps Do NOT drink caffeine or alcohol, and if you dont feel better within 30 minutes, seek medical help. Heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke if not treated. These more dangerous warning signs can indicate heat stroke is imminent: Skin that feels hot and dry, but not sweaty Confusion or loss of consciousness Throbbing headache Frequent vomiting Trouble breathing Heat stroke is more serious than heat exhaustion, and it can be life-threatening. If you or someone you know experiences signs of heatstroke, remember NOT to attempt to bring down the temperature too quickly, Dr. Roach says. Dont use ice or ice water. Attempt to bring down the temperature gradually with cool spray or mild air conditioning, and dial 911 or proceed immediately to the nearest ER. Certain groups of people are more vulnerable to heat-related illness. Babies and young children, the elderly or infirm and people on certain medications are all at increased risk. So, be an alert and informed neighbor this summer. Check on elderly neighbors regularly, and take action immediately if you see children or pets left in vehicles. Researchers make advance in possible treatments for Gaucher disease and Parkinsons disease NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHWith assistance from a high tech robot, National Institutes of Health researchers have identified and tested a molecule that shows promise as a possible treatment for the rare Gaucher disease and the more common Parkinsons disease. Dr. Ellen Sidransky, a senior investigator with NIHs National Human Genome Research Institute, and her collaborators at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the National Center for Advancing Translational Science published their findings in a recent issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Until now, drugs used to treat Gaucher disease have not been able to enter the brain and reach those neurons that are affected in the most severe forms of Gaucher disease or in Parkinsons disease, Dr. Sidransky says. Its really exciting to have found a molecule that theoretically could be widely available to treat people with these diseases. However, she adds, There is a long distance between identifying this molecule and having an approved drug. Dr. Sidransky has conducted research on Gaucher disease for the last 28 years and made the connection between Gaucher disease and Parkinsons disease in 2001. Gaucher disease occurs when GBA1, the gene that codes for the protein glucocerebrosidase, is mutated. This protein normally helps cells dispose of certain fats (lipids), a type of waste produced by all cells. When a person inherits two mutated copies of GBA1, lipids accumulate and can cause symptoms such as enlargement of the spleen, frequent bleeding and bruising, weakened bones and, in the most severe cases, neurological disease. People with even one mutated copy of GBA1 are at higher risk of developing Parkinsons disease, a common disorder characterized by tremors, muscular rigidity and slowed movements. To better understand the connection between Gaucher and Parkinsons diseases, NHGRI researchers used a labor-intensive technology to develop pluripotent stem cells (unspecialized cells that can develop into various specialized body cells). Elma Aflaki, Ph.D., a research fellow in Dr. Sidranskys lab, created stem cells from the skin cells of Gaucher patients with and without Parkinsons disease in the lab. She then converted the stem cells into neurons that had features that were identical to those in people with Gaucher disease. Neurons are nerve cells that transmit information via chemical messengers and electrical signals. The researchers showed that the neurons from Gaucher patients who also had Parkinsons disease showed elevated levels of alpha-synuclein. This is the protein that accumulates in the brains of people with Parkinsons disease and impacts neurons responsible for controlling movement.The researchers then looked for a molecule that would help patients with mutant GBA1 break down cellular waste. In a process known as high-throughput drug screening, researchers at the NCATS Chemical Genomics Center evaluated hundreds of thousands of different molecules. In conjunction with researchers at the University of Kansas, Ttey identified a promising molecule, NCGC607, that helps to chaperone the mutated protein so that it can still function. In the patients stem cell-derived neurons, NCGC607 reversed the lipid accumulation and lowered the amount of alpha-synuclein, suggesting a possible treatment strategy for Parkinsons disease.This research constitutes a major advance, says Dr. Daniel Kastner, NHGRI scientific director and director of the institutes Di vision of Intramural Research. It demonstrates how insights from a rare disorder such as Gaucher disease can have direct relevance to the treatment of common disorders like Parkinsons disease. Researchers will next test the new molecule to see if it might be developed into an appropriate prototype drug for patients with Gaucher disease and Parkinsons disease. Gaucher disease affects an estimated 1 in 50,000 to 1 in 100,000 people in the general population. People of Eastern and Central European Jewish heritage are more likely to get Gaucher disease. Parkinsons disease affects 1.5-2 percent of people over age 60, and the incidence increases with age. In the United States, about 60,000 new cases are identified each year. Parkinsons disease affects more than 1 million people in North America and 7-10 million people worldwide.For more information, visit nih.gov.
Remaining vigilant in an unpredictable health-care environmentOne stark reality and constant challenge for every health-care institution today is the need to respond to decreased reimbursements for physicians, services and health-care systems such as NCH. Over the past decade, we have answered this challenge with sound stewardship and vigilant management of our operational and financial resources. Over that time, we have improved both our delivery of high quality health-care services and our financial position. On the quality side, our recognition from multiple external reviewers is undisputed. Similarly, on the financial side, our financial ratings have remained strong. Most recently, Fitch raised our bond rating from an A to A+. In March, Moodys affirmed our A2 rating with a stable outlook a solid and respectable rating for any institution our size. CFO Rick Wyles and Controller Noble Arrington explain that in terms of Moodys, we are not large enough to move up on their ratings even though we are otherwise strong. As reassured as we feel about our quality, bond ratings, strong operating performance, ongoing cost containment initiatives, dominant market position and modest debt burden, the fact is that the health-care environment remains unpredictable, and we must be even more vigilant, particularly as reimbursement migrates away from traditional fee-forservice. Like other successful health-care systems, NCH has been reporting quality data and has been paid for performance. For example, we are part of 24 percent of systems around the nation participating in a Medicare plan that will pay a fixed amount for the 90-day period around a patients total hip or knee replacement. The plan allows us to share savings if costs are reduced and mandates us to share risk if there are cost overruns, which means everyone involved in the care of a patient will be reimbursed less. Ultimately, a capitated arrangement will be implemented by many of the large insurers, most likely including Medicare and Medicaid, to pay a fixed amount per year to care for a person. So the old ways of health care are rapidly dissolving. The principal goal now, as it always should be, is to keep everyone healthy; that is one of the leading reasons NCH has brought the Blue Zones Project to Southwest Florida. What this means for NCH is that we must continue to be especially prudent during these slower summer months with our resources while always delivering on our core value of excellence in every patient experience. Specifically, we are reviewing all of our expenses and looking for waste to remove and more efficient ways to care for patients. Thats an assignment for all of us. This formula of vigilance has served us well. We have been able to increase wages significantly in recent years and have added hundreds of nurses and other clinical support colleagues to match the growth of our community. In these slower summer months, we will allow our colleagues to take more time off with pay if they have accrued paid time off, or to take time off without pay but with uninterrupted benefits, assuming their departments have enough staff to care for everyone. Continually striving to function more efficiently and come up with innovative solutions for patient care is productive, positive for quality and helpful in sustaining our enviable financial position all of which is necessary for NCH to help ensure that we and our neighbors live longer, happier and healthier lives. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

PET TALESHousetraining habitsThese 8 expert tips will start you and your pup on the path to housetraining success BY DR. MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERUniversal UclickAre you a new or potential puppy owner? If so, housetraining is probably on your mind. Weve gathered some of our favorite tips for ensuring a rewarding experience for you and your pup. 1. Learn caninese. Body language is the first clue that your puppy needs to go out. He might not be crossing his legs, but pawing at you, standing at the top of the stairs or in front of the door and barking are all signs that he needs your attention fast! Some dogs go with the classic sniffing and circling behavior. The instant you see this, scoop him up and take him out. 2. Use a crate. Its not punishment, and its not cruel unless you leave him in it all the time. A crate is your puppys safe spot and sleeping area, so hell instinctively want to keep it clean. And when hes safely confined in it, you dont have to worry that hell have an accident in the house. Staying in a crate helps a puppy learn to control his bladder and bowels. Without it, he may get into the habit of relieving himself whenever and wherever he likes. 3. Choose the right crate. It should be large enough for your pup to stand up and turn around inside it but not so large that he can potty at one end and sleep at the other. Purchase a puppy-size crate and graduate to a larger one later, or buy a crate with a divider. A removable panel allows you to section off the crate as needed and adjust the amount of space the pup has as he grows. You can also block off the back of the crate with a box or some other item that the puppy cant get over or around. Just be sure its safe and not edible. Bricks or cement blocks are out; instead, try vertically inserting a large, cushion-style dog bed. An empty cardboard box could also work if your pup isnt a chewer. 4. Stick to a schedule. Puppies need to potty frequently. Set a timer to take your puppy out every two to four hours. 5. Certain events trigger a pups need to urinate or defecate. Take him out as soon as he wakes up in the morning or from a nap and immediately after eating or drinking. Excitement and stress can lead to potty accidents. Prevent them by taking your pup out to potty every few minutes if he is playing vigorously indoors. Finally, take him out just before bedtime. By 3 to 4 months of age, most pups can sleep through the night, but younger puppies may need to go out once or twice during the night. 6. Twos company. Go out with your puppy to make sure he potties. If youre not with him, you cant reward him with praise and a treat so he knows that you want him to potty outdoors. Play is another good reward when your pup potties outdoors. Let him play for a few minutes after he performs. If you take him back inside immediately, hell be reluctant to relieve himself right away. 7. Feed regular meals. Free-feeding (leaving food out all the time) makes it more difficult to know when your puppy needs to pee or poop. 8. Limit freedom. Letting a puppy have free run of the home is a recipe for potty accidents. Instead, keep him attached to you with a leash unless hes in a puppy-proofed bathroom, kitchen or laundry room. You should always know where he is and what hes doing.

Ive tried various diets, joining gyms, smartphone fitness apps, etc. Like you, I know its all about moving and burning calories, but in this relentless heat, its SUCH a challenge. Not only that, but working out is boring. But just when I was ready to give up and live in extra roomy caftans forever, along came the most genius smartphone app ever: Pokmon Go! Scoff all you want. Im used to it. Ive been told by countless folks my age that this augmented reality mobile game is nothing but a summer fad designed for nerdy teenage boys and yet, ever since I downloaded it last week, Ive been walking at least two hours a day, and I dont even notice that its 184 degrees out because Im too busy happily hunting Pokmon. In case youve been living without internet, television or print media for the past couple of weeks (it happens when I went on a cruise last month, America could have been seized by aliens and I would have had no clue), Pokmon Go is pretty simple. The game is played on your phone and allows you to capture, train and battle little virtual creatures Pokmon that are not real but that your phone camera can make appear in your real world. Pokmon are a cute but feisty species with cuddly names like Jigglypuff, Clefairy and Pollywag. So, unlike say, Words With Friends or Candy Crush Saga, the real crux of Pokmon Go is that one has to actually get off ones duff to play. It works with your phones GPS, so youre forced to meander about in the real world in order to catch otherworldly Squirtles and Weedles and Psyducks and such. Also, you need Pokballs to trap these little rascals, and you must visit Pokstops in order to get them. Pokstops are typically monuments, public art, museums, churches and the like. When you get close enough to a Pokstop, your phone rewards you with Pokballs. I know this sounds complicated, but its really not. Just download the game and start walking. If I can become a Level 11 Mystic Team Pokmon Hunter just like any 12-year-old kid, so can you. And as much as I love capturing a wily Meowth, my favorite part (other than the free weight loss) is interacting with other Pokmon hunters. Recently, I was walking through downtown Fort Myers (other hot Pokmon spots include The Mercato in Naples, Bonita Beach and Gulf Coast Town Center) searching for a much-needed Magikarp, when six young men approached me. Instead of saying, You look like my mom, one asked me, Pokmon? And I was like, Yeah. And another said, Team? And I was like, Mystic.They all kicked rocks, sighed and looked disappointed as one kid said, Man, were Valor. You couldve joined us!I just smiled and replied, Bummer. Catch em all, boys, as I crossed the street to a Pokstop to grab some more Pokballs and hike up my pants, which are getting looser and looser with every capture.In all seriousness though, a lot has been said about Pokmon Go, but I think any game that gets kids and adults out of the house, exercising and interacting over a common hobby might not be such a bad thing these days. So, if youre already into Pokmon or if you just want to know more, journey to downtown Fort Myers at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 23, for a Pokmon Go Bar Crawl. The official starting point is the Patio de Leon, but if you enjoy winging it, you can just go downtown and start playing. You can search for the public invite on Facebook (Pokmon Go Bar Crawl). So far, almost 500 folks have signed up. Happy hunting! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org Pokmon Krabby and Nidoran as they showed up on the writers smartphone.

MONEY & INVESTINGIts not the time to sell stocks, but keep an eye on Central BanksWhy is democracy a better form of government than even a benevolent dictatorship? It is because the collective population usually makes wiser decisions than a single individual with unlimited power. That is also why capitalism is superior to communism. Market forces have been proven to be much better than central planning coming from a singular governmental entity in allocating capital as well as goods. I think it is safe to say that any time the world has relied upon an all knowing government, it has ended in failure. I make this point to explain why I am so nervous about the current stock market. As I am writing this article, the S&P 500 has once again set a record. This should mean that the economy is going gangbusters, employment is at record highs, corporate revenue and earnings are skyrocketing and there is peace and stability around the world. But in most cases, the opposite is true. The U.S. economy is growing at an anemic 2.2 percent. The workforce participation rate is at only 62.4 percent. Corporate revenues have stagnated. And I am seeing a newsflash come across my screen that a truck just plowed into a crowd in France, killing dozens of people. So why is the stock market recording all-time highs? In two words Central Banks. First Central Banks propped up the economy when the financial crisis almost brought us to the brink of financial disaster. Then the Fed and its peers across the globe flooded the world with currency to stimulate their respective economies. And then Central Banks cut interest rates, sometimes to negative numbers, to depreciate currencies and give incentives for individuals and corporations to borrow money. The final effect of Central Bank intervention has been record U.S. financial markets. Low rates have enabled corporations to lever up their balance sheets in order to return money to shareholders in the form of dividends and stock buybacks. Low rates have also pushed bond prices to all-time highs. And low rates have pushed housing prices to levels not seen since the crash. All of this is wonderful for everyone until Central Banks do the unexpected. This happened last Thursday when the Bank of England unexpectedly maintained its key interest rate instead of cutting it, as was universally expected. Clearly this was not an earth-shattering event, as markets were positive for the day and the only real mover was the British pound showing strength. And the BOE did indicate that it would probably cut rates at its next meeting due to concerns regarding Brexit. However, this action does highlight the extreme dangers of a market almost completely supported by a completely non-market force. Here in the U.S., most analysts believe that the Fed will continue with its current policy of keeping rates low. But what if most analysts are incorrect? Investors wont be able to sell their stock or bond portfolios or real estate investments fast enough. Does this mean that I am selling right now? Absolutely not. I am going to ride this train as far as it will take me. I know some advisors are telling their clients to sell into this strength but they have been saying the same thing for years and anyone who has not been 100 percent invested clearly has left money on the table. But my strong advice is to keep a very close eye on the Central Banks. Because without these all knowing bankers, I dont think this is a market worth owning. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Part 2: A more comprehensive look at the concept of Customer Lifetime Value BY FRANK FRIENDSpecial to Florida WeeklyPart 1 of this series (July 7, page B5) offered a simplified definition of the Customer Lifetime Value concept. This week well get into a more comprehensive perspective. The CLV is defined as: The margin generated by a customer over the length of the relationship with the company minus the cost to acquire the customer and the cost of customer loyalty programs over the length of the relationship, discounted to show todays value of future dollars The CLV estimates the net margins to be generated over the length of the relationship. So, if the CLV is used to justify current expenditures such as, How much can be spent to acquire a new customer? it must be discounted to convert future dollars into todays dollar. This discounted CLV is called the Net Present Value. Further details and the calculations can be found at ffauk.com/netpresentvalue. The differences between the average and loyal customer show why the loyal customers CLV is so much higher. Assume that the average customer stays for two years and a loyal one for six years, a ratio that is fairly typical in loyalty-managed companies. The most obvious difference is that the cost of acquiring a new customer is amortized over two years for the average customer but over six years for the loyal one. Less obvious is that the margin generated on sales during the first year is reduced by the onetime costs involved in adding a customer. Also, the customer is testing the company during the first year and will most likely limit his or her purchases. It takes time build the trust necessary for the customer to buy more of their requirements (shareof-wallet) from the company. Once trust is established, as it is with loyal customers, increasing sales, up-selling and cross-selling all become easier. You would have to add three or more average new customers to generate a margin similar to that generated by one loyal customer over the six-year period used as an example here. If this isnt enough to convince you to rush to create loyal customers, then this might: referrals. According to several studies, loyal customers refer two to four times the number of potential customers than average customers. The value of a referred customer increases in direct proportion to the cost of acquiring a new customer, so the worst possible position for a company is to have a high new customer recruitment cost and low retention rate. You must know your position on these two issues. A referred customer, almost cost-free and pre-sold on the trustworthiness of your company, is more willing to buy and buy more. All the components of loyalty management rely on customer data. Many small companies do not understand its importance and resist collecting data. But Im afraid there is no alternative. Investing in data collection, whether manually or using inexpensive CRM systems, is one of the best investments you can make. Frank Friend is a volunteer business counselor with SCORE Naples.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bonds: Good, but Not 100 Percent SafeThe stock market has a reputation among many people of being risky, while bonds are often seen as the safe alternative. Bonds arent totally safe, though they, too, can fall in value or disappoint you in other ways. Bonds are particularly vulnerable when interest rates rise. Thats because the interest rates and yields associated with new bonds will likely also rise, making them more attractive than existing bonds, which feature lower rates. Rising interest rates are not always a concern, but weve been in an environment of very low rates for many years now, and rates are likely to rise in the coming years. No one is certain exactly when, though, with various pundits disagreeing. The Fed has already increased rates a bit. Should bond investors therefore bail out? Not necessarily. Its good to have some bonds in a portfolio for diversification even though stocks tend to outperform bonds over long periods. Retirees and near-retirees may want to increase their bond holdings over time, too, as bonds can be less volatile than stocks. But note that there are different ways to invest in bonds. Investing in bond funds is easy and can immediately have your money diversified across many bonds, but rising rates can cause fund values to fall. If you invest in bonds directly, though, and hold them until they mature, youll get the interest payments you were promised unless the bond issuer defaults. (Thats highly unlikely if youre buying U.S. government-backed funds and much more likely with junk bonds. Municipal and corporate bond issuers will vary in their reliability and ratings.) Another risk related to bonds is inflation. Historically, inflation has averaged about 3 percent annually over many years. If your bonds are yielding less than that, youll be losing purchasing power over time. Its not crazy to invest in bonds, but do so only after you learn more about them and understand how they work. Remember that there are other ways to generate income, too, such as via dividend-paying stocks. Misjudged and Missed OutMy dumbest investments werent really in bad companies. But they were in companies where I wasnt sure where they were going and I misjudged. One such company was HBO & Co. (the technology company, not HBO the TV-show producer). I felt comfortable that I understood where it was going, and that there was plenty of room for growth and profit. Then, a few months after it was acquired by McKesson, it was announced that earnings would be restated due to what turned out to be fraud. I felt that what I based my decisions on was flawed and sold at a loss.The second blunder involved a supermarket chain that I liked, but when I didnt see the price going anywhere after having given it a fair shot, I got out, with little profit. The supermarket was Whole Foods. H., onlineThe Fool Responds: No one can know the future, so investors have to learn as much as they can and make decisions using informed estimates. Fraud often takes us by surprise, but it can help to be on the lookout for any numbers that seem too good to be true or management that doesnt seem candid. McKesson is indeed doing well today. Whole Foods, where you simply werent patient enough, has been struggling a bit lately, challenged by mainstream supermarkets that are also offering organic fare and seeing its profit margins dip. A Winning StockNike (NYSE: NKE), a giant in the athletic footwear and apparel market, is getting stronger, diversifying into sports such as soccer to add to its dominance in basketball and tennis. Because of its size (its market value recently topped $90 billion), Nike negotiates from a position of strength with retailers and maintains much pricing power. That makes retail partners potential advocates for Nike, aligning their interests and promoting overall growth.Its last quarter was rather good, despite headwinds from a strong dollar that shrunk the value of the earnings it generated abroad. Its fiscal 2016 revenue grew by 6 percent over fiscal 2015, with earnings advancing 15 percent and gross margins growing, too. Its revenue has been growing by double digits in much of the world. A strike against Nike is that MVP basketball superstar Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors slipped out of the swoosh-companys endorsement net and signed with up-and-coming rival Under Armour. Some worry that the huge sums of money that Nike and its peers have had to pay for endorsements and exposure may hurt long-term profitability. Nike has a strong network and has done a good job of boosting productivity wherever it can. As long as demand for its products remains high, it has the ability to deliver strong earnings results. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Nike and Under Armour.) I trace my roots back to the 1654 founding of the Angel Pharmacy in Germany. It transformed over time into the company many know today, which was established in 1891. My researchers discovered vitamin B1, developed the first measles vaccine, and introduced the first statins to treat high cholesterol. Im a global biopharmaceutical company, focused on hepatitis C, HIV, diabetes, immuno-oncology and emerging global pandemics, such as Ebola. My core products address diabetes, cancer, vaccines and hospital acute care. Based in New Jersey with a global workforce of about 68,000, I recently topped $160 billion in market value. Who am I? (Answer: Merck) In the FrontierQWhat are frontier funds? C.L., Greenville, North CarolinaAThey are mutual funds focused on certain countries. Youre likely familiar with emerging markets, which typically include countries with developing economies that often grow more briskly than slower and steadier economies such as our own (as well as Japan and much of Europe). The BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China are good examples, as is Mexico. Frontier countries, though, are ones that generally arent as developed economically as emerging-market countries. Their economies are typically smaller and riskier. Examples include Argentina, Botswana, Croatia, Kenya, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ukraine and Vietnam.If youre considering investing in mutual funds focused on frontier countries, be careful, as they can be quite volatile and often charge relatively high fees, too. Its smart to include investments from outside the United States in your portfolio, but you neednt take on too much risk. You might just invest in the whole world market via a simple (and often inexpensive) total stock market fund.***QWhat are financial points I sometimes read about? J.A., SeattleAThere are different kinds of points. For example, indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or S&P 500 are often quoted in points, not dollars, even though theyre based on stock prices. When you get a mortgage, meanwhile, youre often able to get a lower interest rate if you choose to pay some points upfront, each of which is 1 percent of the value of the loan. (With a mortgage of $150,000, one point is $1,500.) And a basis point is one one-hundredth of a percentage point. So an interest rate that rises from 4 percent to 4.5 percent has advanced 50 basis points. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.
B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBen & Jerrys franchises in Atlanta before purchasing Conditioned Air.Florida Weeklys Lindsey Nesmith asked Mr. Etzel to share some of the tips, tricks and insights he has learned through his years of experience. Q: You credit your parents with instilling Christian values and a strong work ethic in you. Can you briefly describe your childhood and give me an example of them teaching those lessons? A: Im an only child, and my parents wanted to make sure that I understood the importance of not only being responsible but also accountable for my actions and interactions with other people. I did not grow up Im not sure of its true or just a stereotype with a spoiled, onlychild attitude. I was given a lot of responsibility and the expectation to live up to it. They obviously instilled in me a perspective that is unique to that (Depression-era) generation: Hard work, determination and perseverance are ways to get over hurdles youre going to face in life. Specifically, we were going to take a vacation when I was maybe 10 years old and I wanted some spending money. They said, Can you figure out a way to make money? I opened up a lemonade stand on a bicycle path across form my house and I had to buy the supplies out of the earnings. I learned about cost of goods very early on, and it started my entrepreneurial view of things. Q: Do you feel like your parents values clashed at all with traditional top-down work hierarchies? A: Im not insistent on a top-down hierarchy except for one thing: All organizations have to have a strong leader who sets the tone of the company culture. All (businesses) will develop a culture, but if you leave it to fill itself in, there will be a vacuum and it will get filled with other peoples thoughts and practices, rather than an intentional culture. Im a big one for culture being extremely important, but I do believe the leadership of the organization sets and enforces and repeats that cultural expectation for everybody. Q: Can you tell us how your business belief system developed? A: I did real estate development for Days Inn and I learned a lot in that position including the operational side of hospitality. From a company standpoint, I felt the company was a very good and valuable fit for me. I did take issue with some of the direct people I interacted with and some of their approaches to business to what it took to make a deal and how they treated people. I learned a lot of lessons where I thought, If Im ever in a position of leadership, Im not going to treat people in this fashion. Q: Was there a moment or situation when you decided you had to create a work environment that reflected your values? Or was it something you always planned to do? A: Its developed over time, but even in simple things. I say simple compared to the larger operations we have (at Conditioned Air). I dont dismiss the work involved with running ice cream franchises. We employed mostly high school and college students, and we had the ability to have direct influence on those people, some of whom did not have the best home life experience. We were able to counsel and be there and teach them responsibility and accountability. I would just say in all areas and all positions, wherever you are, you have influence on others either by design or proximity. And if you have strong beliefs about how things should be done, you can exert influence on people around you. You dont have to wait until youre in a leadership role. Q: Youve mentioned that the air conditioning-heating business doesnt have a good reputation among consumers and you were driven to change that perception through your own company. Can you tell us about some industry innovations that helped Conditioned Air become synonymous with honesty and reliable customer service? A: Lets start with one of the basic practices the industry teaches: that its very accepted there are consultants who go out and say this is what you should do to pay technicians based on percentage of repair ticket or commissions on parts or repairs they sell you. Automatically, that puts the technician at odds with the best service provided to the consumer. That doesnt work in my opinion, so we dont do that. We pay an hourly rate commensurate with experience, training and tenure. Theyre not required to sell. Even the people we do have in sales roles dont have quotas. With quotas, technicians who are short of their goal could be driven to have to sell something to somebody who doesnt need it. I dont want to encourage that kind of behavior. Do the right thing for people and people will come to you. What you do with the money after someone is willing to spend it, thats business management. But always do the right thing for people. You sleep well at night. We have a lot of people apply to work here because theyre tired of being pushed to sell or lie because they didnt make their quotas. Q: Tell us about something that stifles employee motivation and how you counteract those forces? There are probably two things that all people really want out of their work: They want to feel like theyre doing something purposeful, and they want to be heard. We try to ask a lot of questions and involve our employees in brainstorming to improve processes. We want their input. We talk about our purpose, which is to help people in situations when, quite frankly, no one wants to spend money on something thats utilitarian like air conditioning Regardless of the fact that were in the air conditioning business, were actually in the people business. We send people to your home and you have to talk to somebody about whats going on, so we want to make sure we exercise hospitality to all people. Q: Can you define the meaning of investing your heartbeats wisely? A: That comes from the expression my mother used to say: Money equals heartbeats. When you trade your heartbeats for a paycheck, its not just dollar bills; its part of yourself youve given up. Where do leaders need to invest their heartbeats to make a difference in peoples lives? It boils down to treating people right, whether thats employees or customers (who are ultimately our real employers). If you do that consistently, you attract people who want to do it right for your team. We are not perfect, but our goal always is to do the right thing and do things right every time. I will tell you that while we do the right thing, sometimes we dont do all things right the first time. We would like to, but we make mistakes because were human. Our goal will always be to stand up, to be accountable and make it right. Q: In your book you say you put effort into conveying a sense of optimism, cooperation and humility to your employees. Have you experienced a time when your attitude has had negative effects on your company or customers? A: I have not, because I really, really believe in the concept that leaders are always on stage and that you have to be on all the time. I absolutely commit to the role. Its not like I can walk up to the people at our front desk and say Im having a bad day. That does not work. You cannot complain down. Whatever you say or act on is going to set the mood and peoples expectations. During the recession, we were straight up with people: The carts in the ditch and everybodys got to be an ox. I dont believe in hope as a business strategy, but the attitude of hope is huge in being optimistic If you walk in grousing all the time, that is exactly the attitude you will attract to the company. Q: You devote a whole chapter to avoiding burnout. Do you think its more pervasive these days than in the past? Why or why not? A: The potential is there now much more than in the past because of the connectivity. Everyones on 24/7, and its very difficult to separate yourself from the business if you arent intentional about turning devices off and stepping away. Its just extremely hard these days to completely divorce yourself from work, especially when a lot of people in the world continue to work into the evening and weekends. Mental separation is really difficult. I call it the microwaving of society. It used to take an hour to bake a potato, and then a microwave came along and it was six minutes, and now people are yelling at the microwave to hurry up. How much faster do we need to be? Everyones been trained this way. When I was young and did real estate deals for Days Inn, it was pre-FedEx. When we did contracts, I had to plan well in advance to send it to someone and get it back in the mail. Then FedEx came along and all of a sudden that planning side went away because you knew you could get it to them overnight. As things have progressed, people do a lot less planning and then they kind of rush it. People demand an answer more quickly. You see it when someone sends an email and if you dont respond right away you get a phone call. If youre not careful, you get yourself trained to jump back at something and your priorities continue to slide. It wasnt that long ago that if you had a job at a bank, for example, you went home Friday and came back on Monday. Communication didnt occur over the weekend; you got a break. Today its a lot tougher and burnout happens a lot faster. Q: Why did you decide to write a book? A: I really wanted to get my thoughts and philosophy in writing and leave it as a legacy for my children and grandchildren. I also wanted to write about the success of our people doing things they way we do. It shows that if you are good guys and you really try to do the right thing for people and do it consistently, you can be successful. You do not have to take shortcuts to make money. It might take longer, but it will be longer lasting. I can walk anywhere in this town and hold my head up. Ive lived here for 21 years and my family was raised here. I want to go anywhere I want to go and feel good about it. that was always more important to me than the money. HEARTFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYNaples-based Conditioned Air.

REDUCED! Florida tops states where foreigners purchase property NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSWaning economic growth in many countries and higher home prices further enhanced by a strengthening U.S. dollar resulted in a slight decline in international sales dollar volume of U.S. property over the past year and a significant retreat in buying from non-resident foreigners. This is according to an annual survey of residential purchases from international buyers recently released by the National Association of Realtors. The survey also revealed that the dollar volume of sales from Chinese buyers exceeded the total dollar sales figure of the next top four ranked countries combined. NARs 2016 Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate found that foreign buyers purchased $102.6 billion of residential property, a 1.3 percent decline from the $103.9 billion of property purchased in last years survey. Overall, a total of 214,885 U.S. residential properties were bought by foreign buyers (up 2.8 percent), and properties were typically valued higher ($277,380) compared to the median price of all U.S. existing home sales ($223,058).Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says this years findings highlight the tremendous appeal U.S. real estate still has on many foreign nationals despite the price of property becoming less affordable.Weaker economic growth throughout the world, devalued foreign currencies and financial market turbulence combined to present significant challenges for foreign buyers over the past year, Mr. Yun says. While these obstacles led to a cool down in sales from non-resident foreign buyers, the purchases by recent immigrant foreigners rose, resulting in the overall sales dollar volume still being the second highest since 2009.Foreigners especially those from China continue to see the U.S. as a solid investment opportunity and an attractive place to visit and live. Five states account for half of foreign buyer purchases. Slightly over half of all foreign buyers purchased property in Florida (22 percent), California (15 percent), Texas (10 percent), Arizona or New York (each at 4 percent). Latin Americans, Europeans and Canadians, who tend to buy in warm climates for vacation purposes, mostly sought properties in Florida and Arizona.

The median purchase price over the survey period was a tad lower ($277,380) compared to the 2015 survey ($284,900) as a result of the fewer non-resident foreign buyers. Overall, foreign buyers most commonly purchased a home priced between $250,001 and $500,000, while 10 percent paid over $1 million or more.Exactly half of all international transactions were all-cash purchases, which was slightly down from a year ago (55 percent) but still roughly double the overall share of existing sales. All-cash purchases were more common by non-resident foreign buyers (73 percent) and those from Canada, China and the United Kingdom.A majority of foreign buyers over the past year purchased a single-family home, and nearly half bought in a suburban area. Twothirds or more of buyers from each China, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom purchased detached single-family homes, while Canadian buyers were the most likely to buy a multi-family home.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSDebut novel explores how low a man can go and still right himself Beachhead by Jeffery Hess. Down and Out Books. 322 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95. In the time-honored tradition of Florida Noir, this new title is more grit than polish. And, by the way, thats a good thing. We meet the main character, Scotland Ross, trying to escape from hard times and avoid doing hard time. Hes a man with moral awareness, but also with a conflict of honorable and dishonorable loyalties. A series of bad choices has made it difficult for Scotland to turn his life around. His parole officer is worried about him, and with good reason. His older sister Dana, to whom he owes a lot going back to their childhood days, has married poorly and is in a big financial bind. Though Scotland needs cash to build a new life for himself, she flaunts her desperation to the point that he gives her what he has and takes dangerous employment to enable her husbands irresponsibility or is it just hard luck? Scotland, a superb physical specimen, finds himself working for the man who would be governor of Florida. Allan Kinsey is a ruthless, all-purpose criminal. Drugs and real estate coexist in his growing empire. How he will make the transition from gangster to governor is clear enough in his own mind: buying influence and subservience with the currency of money, promises and threats. For some readers, the Kinsey character might seem unrealistic; others will be reminded of a certain presidential candidate who interprets an opinion not his own as a hurtful threat that must be put down. Working for Kinsey is already a violation of Scotlands parole, but he rationalizes his choice while hoping to find his way out of Kinseys snare. When he disappears, attempting to start a new life in an idealized Daytona Beach, he is tracked down by a pair of Kinseys henchmen. In a gloriously violent scene, he makes his escape from being captive on a boat. Jeffrey Hess is masterful at portraying the criminal types, their outlook on the world and the peculiar ways in which they justify their actions. Kinseys main assistant, a man named Platinum, is an intelligent psychopath, and the twin bookends who almost murdered Scotland are just as crazy but not quite so bright. Thought the plot of Beachhead is serviceable, character portrayal and character development are stronger ingredients in this debut novel. Scotland is given sufficient complexity and individuality to warrant at least a second appearance. His sister, too often dependent on pills, has questionable coping skills in spite of good intentions. One can sympathize with her without condoning her behavior. Other female characters, though of less importance, are also effectively drawn. These include Maria, who is Linseys unfaithful girlfriend, and Kyla, the generous, attractive young band drummer who nurses Scotland back to health. Mr. Hess is also adept at action scenes and developing a sense of place. His portraits of Tampa, Daytona Beach and other locations ring true without being overdrawn or slowing the action. He gets the atmospherics right and puts readers on the spot with his vivid descriptions of residences, modes of transportation and whats to be observed along the way. The author has worked diligently and well to flesh out his decision to set the novel in 1980, drawing upon popular culture, period technology, and other details to establish verisimilitude. All in all, the Florida he paints does not resemble the touristy postcards. Its filled with corruption and pain. Nonetheless, Mr. Hess gives us the kind of ugly thats addictive. Im anxious to discover whats next from this highly promising writer. About the authorAside from Beachhead, Jeffery Hess is the editor of the award-winning anthologies Home of the Brave: Stories in Uniform, and Home of the Brave: Somewhere in the Sand. He served six years aboard the Navys oldest and newest ships and has held writing positions at a daily newspaper, a Fortune 500 company and a university-based research center. He holds an MFA in creative writing from Queens University of Charlotte, and his writing has appeared widely in print and online. Mr. Hess lives near Tampa, where he leads the DD-214 Writers Workshop for military veterans. 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 HESS

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Hemingway Look-Alike Contest, part of the annual weeklong Hemingway Days festival in Key West, which began July 19 and runs through Sunday, July 23. Now in its 36th year, the festival celebrates the reigning king of Key Wests literary legacy, Ernest Hemingway. Events include lectures, cocktail parties, tours, races, readings and even a fishing tournament, but its the Papa Look-Alike Contest that receives the bulk of the national press, owed no doubt to the hallucinatory sight of a room packed with what appear to be Hemingways clones, all jostling for a prize shaped like you guessed it Papa. Picture it: Hemingway, clutching a bronze bust of Hemingway, smiling amid a sea of drunk Hemingways enough to make someone who happened to walk in off the street think theyd suffered a concussion (or stumbled into a particularly weird literary fetish party. After all, it is Key West). Each year, more than 100 broadchested, bearded hopefuls queue up at Hemingways favorite watering hole, Sloppy Joes, to compete for the title of Papa. They preen, they pose, they arm-wrestle. They spend hours choosing the right khaki safari shirt and woolen fishermans sweater. And, much like a traditional beauty pageant, looks only get the contestants so far theres a talent portion, too, in which each Hemingway (outfitted in a crisp outfit of white and red, complete with jaunty beret and handkerchief) runs amid manmade bulls in a simulation of the famous, slightly more dangerous Spanish event. The competition is fierce; theres even a scholarship portion, in which the Papas celebrate their namesakes July 21 birthday by announcing the recipients of the Hemingway Look-Alike Societys scholarships given to local students. Its just one of events in the lineup. First off, attendees might want to refresh their memories of Hemingways oeuvre by visiting his old Key West digs, now called the Hemingway Home & Museum. At 907 Whitehead St., the museum and its famously lush, six-toed-cat covered grounds is perfect for an afternoon spent meandering through rooms filled with antiques and memorabilia. Keep an eye out for the penny encased in cement beside the swimming pool out back. Legend has it that the authors second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer, put it there after her husband took issue with her having overseen the conversion of his beloved boxing ring into a swimming pool, to the tune of $20,000. Supposedly, Ms. Pfeiffer was motivated by spite, not a love of aquatic aerobics; word had gotten back to her that her husband, away from home working as acorrespondent during the Spanish Civil War, had fallen in love with Martha Gellhorn, who would go one to replace Pfeiffer as wife No. 3. It was the only in-ground swimming pool on the island, and even in 1938, $20,000 was a boatload of money. The author reportedly threw a penny on the ground when he discovered how much Pfeiffer had spent, saying she had spent all but his last penny, and that she might as well take it, too. Hemingway wrote some of his most influential work in the studio adjoining the house. Be aware: A number of artifacts, including a life-sized bronze statue of the writer by historical sculptor Terry Jones, have been temporarily relocated to the nearby Custom House Museum, also home to an exhibit of 59 original pen-and-ink illustrations by renowned artist Guy Harvey that follow the narrative of The Old Man and the Sea. Papa loved boxing almost as much as he loved fishing, so youll certainly want to make your way over to Blue Heaven restaurant, where the author refereed a number of boxing matches in what is now the outdoor dining area. Insider tip: Breakfast can have threehour wait times, but dinner (just as good, and often featuring some of the islands best live music) is easier to get into. To celebrate the authors rarely discussed poetry, the restaurant and the Key West Poetry Guild host a reading of Hemingways lesser-known work on Friday, July 22. The authors famously sporty lifestyle might best be celebrated by participating in the Papas Pilar Rum Hemingway 5K Sunset Run and Paddleboard Race. The Paddleboard Race, beginning at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 23, features a 3-mile ocean course that starts and finishes at the Southernmost Beach. Or, if youre faster on pavement than waves, skip the paddleboarding and join the longest-running road race in Key West. An after-party back at the beach will have food, drinks, a silent auction, raffles and an awards ceremony. Of course, its his seminal writing for which Hemingway is most remembered, and this years festival has plenty of literary events to satisfy the academically minded. The full, chronological list of events for the Hemingway Days celebration can be found at fla-keys.com. Those traveling by car should plan to bypass Key Wests main drag, Duval Street, on July 23, when the street will close to vehicular traffic for an all-day open air market featuring arts, crafts, tropical clothing, jewelry and a variety of food stands. Grab a bite to eat at the market, don your Pamplona best and head over to Sloppy Joes at 1 p.m. to catch the aforementioned Running of the Bulls event. Just be sure to watch out for the horns on those mandriven bulls and for the Papas, for that matter. After a couple rums each, either one is just as unpredictable as the other. PAPAFrom page 1ANDY NEWMAN / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAU / HOCharlie Boice, center, is congratulated by previous victors after winning the 2015 Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest last year. Ernest Hemingway Look-Alikes proceed on Duval Street during the annual Running of the Bulls last year. For years, Charlie Boice was mistaken for Kenny Rogers. Then he moved to Florida and the retired air traffic controller took up a new impersonation in earnest. Last year, Mr. Boice won the Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest in Key West. He returns this year as a judge of the contest, in which bearded men gather to see who most resembles writer Ernest Hemingway. It isnt easy. Mr. Boice, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, had competed for 15 years before he won the friendly contest. Thats really what it is. Its a real camaraderie. You have to get in there and you have to know the Papas and you have to show that youre going to be interested in the situation, he said. You cant be a flash in the pan. Good humor aside, the competition is a serious business. Each of the potential Papas is expected to help raise money for the scholarships the contest supports. Each year, the organization gives a $10,000 scholarship to students studying writing or nursing. Hemingway, of course, was a writer, and many of his relatives were nurses. Heck, A Farewell to Arms recounts the love of a young American ambulance driver for an English nurse on the Italian front during World War I. We work hard all year long to get donations for the scholarship fund, Mr. Boice said. So far, the group has given away about $150,000 in scholarships, and theyre already yielding dividends. Mr. Boice, a boat captain, likes Hemingways passion for fishing Ive actually met people who introduced me to a guy who used to pal around on the docks in Cuba where he used to be. I love to fish. This year, I caught a 400-pound marlin. And he loves to get together with his posse of potential Papas. The whole thing is a fraternity. Theres a bunch of guys who get together. We all know each other, and were there for each other, we give the scholarships. That uncanny resemblance to Hemingway has wings. Mr. Boice has been to Pamplona for the Spanish towns Fiesta de San Fermin. Ive done the running of the bulls me, another of the Papas, Tom Grizzard, and Brian Sinclair, he said. Mr. Sinclair is a playwright and the author of Hemingway On Stage. Festival organizers brought the men to Spain for a week and took them where Hemingway had gone fly-fishing. They put us on a stage like a rock n roll festival. It was a little unnerving. He wore a wool sweater when he won last years Hemingway contest. No matter that it was July in Key West and the temperature was sweltering. He will give that sweater to Michael Groover, aka Mr. Paula Deen, who happens to be a longstanding Hemingway contestant. Its a tradition, he said. He will be a judge for life, as are the other Papas. Ill be doing this for as long as I can do it. Were going down there to have some fun. As long as I have fun, Im fine with it.

We seek the comfort and stability of marriage, only to wonder after some years where the passion has gone. In Sirens at Laboratory Theater of Florida, Rose (Brenda Kensler) and Sam (Patrick Day) have been married for 35 years and, as BB King sang, The thrill is gone. Novelty and romance have given way to familiarity and predictability. Sam takes his wife for granted. He also fears his best years are behind him, that every surprise has happened already. In addition to a marriage thats turned stale, hes blocked creatively. As a songwriter, he had a big hit 35 years ago with Rose Adelle, a song he wrote to woo his not-yet-wife. (And as Rose puts it, its been covered by Mel Torme and Earth, Wind and Fire.) Much to Sams frustration, nothing hes written since has matched its success. We first meet Rose and Sam at a travel agency, where theyre bickering their typical form of communication. Leah (Holly Hagen in one of her multiple roles), an obnoxiously chipper girl fresh out of school, assists them, and they finally agree to go on a Mediterranean cruise. This is Ms. Kenslers debut on the LAB Theater stage. She directed previous Cabaret and Calendar Girls for the company, but its a revelation to see her on the stage herself. Her Rose is a world-weary, wisecracking New Yorker who doesnt let anything get past her. (Just the way she says My ass! made me laugh.) Mr. Day is equally as strong as a man smack in the middle of a mid-life crisis. Like an old fool, Sam longs for his high school sweetheart and flirts with young girls on Facebook. He ignores his wife when shes talking to him and ogles a young, scantily clad girl instead. Both of them look back at turning points in their lives and wonder: What if ? And they come to realize that in marriage, there are many sirens in life that can lure them to danger and dash the relationship against the rocks. On their cruise, Sam is seduced by the song of a real-life siren (Ms. Hagan again). Is he dead? Is it a dream? Is he hallucinating? Ms. Hagen is a siren, yes, but one with a major attitude problem. When Sam tells her, Youre so beautiful it hurts, she snaps, Yes, thats my thing. Ms. Hagen, who also plays a waitress as snarky as her travel agent character, is extremely adept at playing selfabsorbed millennials. The siren is addicted to playing a handheld electronic game that washed up on the island. (Its possible shes playing Solitaire, though the script doesnt specify. She refers to it as moving around little numbered boxes.) Its so wonderfully diverting, she coos, her eyes glued to the screen. Shes irritated when she has to interrupt her play to sing, luring another ship into the rocks. But Sam is entranced by her song and feels it could be his next big hit if only he could remember how the melody goes, and if only he could get off that island. Or perhaps hes dead. Sirens just grows more and more delightfully absurd and difficult to explain without giving too much away. (Juan Alejandro rounds out the cast, playing the role of Richard, a smarmy sleaze of a guy who says Long Island in what he thinks is a seductive manner.) One of the great things about Deborah Zoe Laufers script is that you have no clue where its going or whats going to happen next, yet it contains its own strange internal logic. Director Anne Dodd does a good job of translating Ms. Laufers whimsical craziness to the stage, and set designer Michael Eyth manages to give us at least half a dozen different locales. (Though I confess, for the longest time in the opening scene, I had no clue Rose and Sam were at a travel agency. Perhaps a destination poster or one touting an airline wouldve helped create a better sense of place.) Moments between scenes also seem to take too long. And actors also stepped on each others lines from time to time, possibly due to opening-night nerves, though some of the overlap inadvertently added a feeling of authenticity to the dialogue. We actually do get to hear the famous Rose Adelle song (music composed by Matt Callaban.) But I was more intrigued by the sirens ethereal singing (music by Siera Condon and FSU music majors, according to the program.) Sirens is packed with surprises and laughs. Its a good reminder that, as Sam says, You have to make thrilling things happen. The songs not over, no matter how many verses youve already sung. Go see Sirens. Youll be willingly seduced by its lovely loopiness. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOSThe siren (Holly Hagen) sings her song to Sam (Patrick Day).

CONTRACT BRIDGEYou just cant trust anybodyBY STEVE BECKERDear Mr. Becker: Here is an interesting hand that came up in our regular Thursday night game. South opened fourth hand with four hearts, and West led the jack of clubs. Declarer won with dummys queen and led a trump, finessing the jack. He had decided it was better to take a trump finesse rather than a diamond finesse at trick two because, if the heart jack lost to the queen, he would still have the diamond finesse to fall back on. He would not have the same advantage if he tried the diamond finesse first and it lost. However, things didnt work out quite the way South planned. West, a shrewd cookie, won the jack of trumps with the ace and returned a club to dummys ace. Convinced that East had the queen of trumps, declarer led another trump and finessed the ten. This lost to Wests queen, and South later lost a spade and a diamond to go down one. Declarer surely would have made the contract had West won the first trump lead with the queen. In that case, South would have tried a diamond finesse and gotten home safe and sound. You might marvel at Wests sagacity in winning the first trump lead with the ace instead of the queen. But upon reflection, I think he made the right play. From Wests viewpoint, it was far more beneficial to the defense to induce declarer to lead another trump from dummy at trick four than a diamond or a spade through East. I also think its hard to blame declarer for having swallowed the bait by electing to repeat the heart finesse. They say that Souths face, when West produced the queen of hearts at trick four, was not a pretty sight to see. I wouldnt know. I was South. Sincerely, Devoted Reader AUTHENTIC RECIPES.

Nicely directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and solid performances all around, particularly from Cranston. Rated R.Hunt For The Wilderpeople (Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rachel House) After his foster mother dies, an orphan (Mr. Dennison) goes on the lam with his uncle (Mr. Neill) in the New Zealand woods. Its beautifully shot, and subtly hilarious from start to finish. Rated PG-13.Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (Zac Efron, Adam Devin, Anna Kendrick) Irresponsible idiots Mike (Mr. Devine) and Dave (Mr. Efron) ruin all their familys functions, so for their sisters wedding theyre forced to bring nice, respectable dates. Enter Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Ms. Kendrick), who are anything but. Its every bit as crass, fun and hilarious and you expect. Rated RThe BFG (Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader) A London orphan (Ms. Barnhill) is taken to giant country, where she helps a Big Friendly Giant (Mr. Rylance) take down the bullies who pick on him. It lacks narrative thrust and the characters are underdeveloped, but visually the film is stellar. Rated PG.Our Kind of Traitor (Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris, Stellan Skarsgard) A Russian Mafia money launderer (Mr. Skarsgard) asks a British man (Mr. McGregor) for help in reaching out to MI6. 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 (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.Alice Through The Looking Glass (Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen, Johnny Depp) Alice (Ms. Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Matters (Mr. Depp) family. The visuals are impressive, but the performances and story feel overdone. Rated PG.

YesFor all the bad horror movies with predictable scares and schlocky effects, Lights Out is a breath of fresh air, a real seat-jumper full of oh, no moments and legitimate fright. Its everything you want a horror movie to be, but rarely is. The story centers on Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) and her little stepbrother Martin (Gabriel Bateman), who cant sleep because hes afraid of the dark. He has good reason. Rebecca sympathizes because when she was his age (about 10) she too was tormented by a demon named Diana (Alicia Vela-Bailey) when the lights were off. Rebecca escaped Diana by moving out of the house, but that solution doesnt work for Martin. With their mother Sophie (Maria Bello) no help at all, but Rebeccas doting boyfriend Bret (Alexander DiPersia) doing everything he can to protect them, Rebecca and Martin try to figure out how to get rid of the demon once and for all. Director David F. Sandberg takes our natural fear of the dark and subverts it into the story of a demon that only exists in the dark and cannot be exposed to light. Just keep the lights on! youre thinking. Well, Rebecca and Martin try. And although Mr. Sandberg does throw in one malfunctioning light too many, for the most part theyre smart about how they combat the malevolent baddie. This is important because many horror movies insult the viewers intelligence by having characters do things that are illogical and colossally stupid; in contrast, the Lights Out characters use logic as an asset, albeit to varying degrees of effectiveness. In the very least, theyre clever about it. During one sequence, Bret smartly uses modern technology to get out of a bind. Later, Rebecca uses a black light to see Diana, and theres no shortage of candles, flashlights and other forms of light available when the power inevitably goes out. The problem is those can only light a limited area, so if its dark behind you Mr. Sandberg, who is making his feature film debut here after creating this story as a short film in 2013, also shows proficiency at crafting a scare. For example, in the opening scene Diana appears on the other side of a room when lights are turned off. Office worker Esther (Lotta Losten, Mr. Sandbergs wife) thinks she sees something, so she turns the lights on and off again. As she does so with increasing speed, Diana gets closer every time the lights go off, creating a darkly imposing sense of danger that starts the film on a perfect note. At 81 minutes, Lights Out is short, sweet and scary. Enough of the backstory is satisfactorily explained, but Mr. Sandberg and co-writer Eric Heisserer stop short of exploring the supernatural forces that allow Diana to exist. But thats OK. The how isnt as important as the what here, and in this case the what adds up to a horror movie thats a lot of fun. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Watch closely: When Rebecca is in the basement with the black light, you can see a crew member in the background on the oor handling wires. This is a $5 million lm, which means its low budget. A bigger budget probably would have allowed for the digital removal of the crew member in postproduction.

It doesnt happen all the time, but it happened recently with a collection of ruby-flashed glassware I saw at a Goodwill store. At one time, the glassware, essentially clear glass that was coated with a ruby stain that could be scratched away to leave a message or design, was popular with collectors. Lately, that has not been the case. And thats too bad. During the heyday of antiques collecting, roughly from the 1960s through the s, even a simple rubyflashed goblet might have fetched $25 more if it was from a rarely seen town or commemorated an important event. The pieces I saw at Goodwill were priced at under $10. I took a picture and sent it to Jim Antone, who has sold antiques in Jacksonville for more than 40 years. Remember when there was a market for these, back in 1973? I wrote. Yes, you cant give them away today, he replied. But when I returned to Goodwill, all had been sold, save one goblet, in the Kings Crown pattern. Granted, they sold for much less than they would have years ago, but at least they sold. Much of this glassware, made around the turn of the last century, was intended for sale as souvenirs. Folks attending fairs and such could have them engraved to commemorate the event, much as people visit that national retailer, Things Remembered, to have cups and other items engraved with names or dates of significance. They were keepsakes that recorded the special moments of a century ago and more. Most of these pieces were American made and probably wholesaled for a few cents at most. And though the market for this glassware has been decidedly off for the better part of a decade, it proved a point thats good to remember: Sometimes, all it takes is one buyer and one object (or, in this case, many objects) to make something valuable. Nobody at Goodwill knew for sure, but Im willing to bet one or two buyers bought the bulk of that collection, bucking a trend and surprising me. Thats one souvenir Im only too happy to take away. A ruby-flashed Kings Crown goblet.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESCollectible dolls often reflect resourcefulness of makers who lacked materials BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELDolls have been favored toys for centuries. Long before there were manufactured china, metal or plastic headed dolls, there were wooden, rag and even dried-apple heads. And often, where there was no available doll material, folk-art dolls were made with leather and beads, silk stockings, felt, carved stone and fur, knit socks, clothes pins, wishbones, corn cobs, acorns, pinecones, even old broomsticks. Earlier this year, a German carved wooden folk-art doll, made in about 1850 from a hollow wooden tube and other wood pieces, sold at auction for $1,600. It is 20 inches tall and is decorated with a painted geometric design. There are no arms or legs, but the paint suggests a bunting blanket used on babies. The auction catalog called it the bed post doll because the head looked like the top of a bedpost and was, perhaps, made from a recycled bedpost. The original painted finish, age, size and originality all added to the value. Q: We have an old cast-iron stove that reads Wooddale Belknap Hdw. & Mfg. Co. Louisville, KY on the front. It belongs to my mom and we want to sell it, but we need to know an asking range. A: Williaim Burke Belknap established his hardware and manufacturing company in 1840 and made stoves, hot plates, dutch ovens, skillets and waffle irons. The company name became Belknap Inc., in 1968. It closed in 1985. Some stoves with the same mark as yours sell for $250-$300. Q: After my mother-in-law died, we discovered 83 pieces of Arcoroc Pink Swirl Rosaline glass dishes in her kitchen. Weve never heard of Arcoroc or Pink Swirl glassware and hope you can tell us what we found. Is there a market for these dishes, or should we donate them to a local charity? A: Arcoroc was the name used by Arc International Food Service, a company in Arques, Pas-de-Calais, France. The company was founded in 1825. The name became Verrerie Cristallerie dArques in 1892. The name Arcoroc was first used in 1958 for the companys tempered glass. The glassware was sold in U.S. department stores after a sales subsidiary was opened in the U.S. in 1966. Depression glass was popular in the 1980s and s, and Arcorocs Rosaline was a popular pattern. The tempered glassware could be used in the microwave or freezer. The name of the company became Arc International in 2000. It currently makes dinnerware, glassware and stainless-steel flatware for restaurants, bars and hotels. A cup and saucer sells for $3 to $6. Q: When we married in 1954, my husband and I purchased 12 place settings of Eberthal china with serving pieces. We have dinner and salad plates, cups and saucers and bowls. It was used infrequently, well stored and is in excellent condition. Could you give us a value? A: In 1901, brothers Johann and Christian Seltmann opened Porzellanfabrik Johann Seltmann in Altenstadt, Vohenstrauss, Germany. Christian left to form his own factory in 1909. Johann died in 1921, leaving his business to his sons, Robert and Christian. During World War II, the company made items such as insulators for the war effort, but factory buildings were damaged. The company closed, rebuilt, reopened and operated until about 2000. The Eberthal brand was introduced after the war in the early 1950s as a less-expensive line of dishes and was made until the 1970s. Sets the size of yours have sold at auction from $75 to $360. If your set has an abstract design, it might sell for about $150 to $200. It is difficult to sell a large set of dishes online because of the work and cost of packing and shipping.

Can you tell me if she has any more projects in the pipeline? Daryl G., via emailA: Jennifer is returning to CBS, but not to Blue Bloods.

Her first airdate will be the premiere, which is Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET. Q: I was so bummed to read in your column that the Coach revival was canceled. Does that happen a lot, shows getting the go-ahead and then having it snatched away? Lilly G., Dearborn, Mich.A: It happens more often than you might think. Foxs Famous was canceled before shooting started. HBO rescinded Brothers in Atlanta; it also canceled its Codes of Conduct before air. FXX canceled Cassius and Clay before any episodes aired. Spikes Harvest was canceled prior to production, as was Yahoos The Pursuit. Q: Can you give me any scoop on the new season of American Horror Story?

The cast members who have confirmed that theyll be returning: Evan Peters, Denis OHare, Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett, Leslie Jordan, Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga. Jessica Lange will not return for the new season. Q: Ive been putting off watching the sixth season of Community because I just dont want it to end. Do the rumors I am hearing about a possible movie have any chance of being true? Hyla P. in North CarolinaA: If creator Dan Harmon has his way, there will be a Community movie. He recently told Larry King that Community would make a great movie, cryptically adding, It will happen. However, he isnt sure when his busy cast could come together, saying: If I pull out a typewriter right now and write a Community movie just for my own heart and mind, then I have to go through the heartbreak and agony of finding out which of the people are going to show up to make it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 but people will do it forever just to get that feeling. Mr. Walch knows that feeling. He worked as a house emcee at a comedy club in Gainesville for a couple years and then went on the road as a stand-up comic for eight years. When you get that laugh, he says, Its a rush. Its more addicting than anything. Part of it is the feeling of control. When a comic is really, really hitting, (the audience) is almost in a state of panic, theyre laughing so hard. You feel like youre on top of the world. Plus, theres that affirmation and feeling of love from the audience. Mob love, he calls it. Heres this entire room that thinks youre the best thing in the world. Youre the center of attention. Its the Hey, Mom, look at me thing that we all have as part of us: Look at me! Look at me! We never lose that when we grow up.Laughing all the wayMr. Walch has done stand-up on cruise ships, in casinos and a whole lot of one-night bars. It was fun when he was in his 20s, he says, but, When you get older, it just wears you out. The old saying was that you start out doing the road, and the road ends up doing you. Hes been teaching comedy and public speaking at FGCU since 2003. So can you really teach someone to be funny? Thats the first question people ask me, he says. Its a matter of degree. I think everybodys funny Some might have a diminished or different sense of humor, but I think everybody at some time in their life has made somebody else laugh. But doing it professionally, on command, is a much different story. Its a lot more work than people think, he says. He advises aspiring stand-ups not to panic if a joke happens to fall flat. Move on, move on to your next joke, he says. It happens even to professionals. Part of the challenge is to have the courage to keep going on, even if a joke doesnt get a laugh. Maybe the next one will. I know somethings funny when I see it or when I hear it, he says, but no ones every written the 100 percent successful joke. You do a joke in one crowd and kill everybody. You do it the next night for a different audience, without changing a line, and it bombs. You have no idea why. A lot of comedy is observational, taking a premise and turning it into a joke, he says. You think, isnt it funny how this always happens? This is a good premise. Now you have to write it into joke form: the set up and then that quick punch line that gets the laugh. But no one really knows what is guaranteed to be funny. If anyone ever finds out what the trigger is, the formula for making people laugh, Theyd be a multi-billionaire, Mr. Walch says. Comics work on their craft, trying out different material on various audiences. People will work on jokes for years and years, he says. Theyll change a word here, ask, Do I pause here? Do I do this? Little things like that can make a big difference. The most prevalent theory that explains comedy most of the time is Thomas Hobbes Superiority Theory, he says. We have a sudden feeling of being superior: Thank God that didnt happen to me. Its a cynical look at the world. Its a feeling of sudden glory: Ha! That wasnt me!Whats funny today One of the classes Mr. Walch teaches at FGCU is Theories of Comedy, a look at humor from Aristotle to the present age. What we think is funny has changed over time. Bob Hope was long a staple of Americas comedic scene, with his specials and USO tours. But his stuff is so homophobic, its unbelievable, Mr. Walch says, adding that much of the comedy of past decades doesnt translate to todays generation. For example, when he plays the first episode of TVs groundbreaking All in the Family for his class, his students dont realize that Archie Bunkers ignorance, sexism, racism and homophobia are being mocked and are meant to be funny. Theyre just shocked, he says. Its not funny to them. What about movies such as Animal House or Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein? They all bomb, he says. They dont get it. Its a different style of humor than what theyve grown up with. And its clean. The same goes for silent film stars such as Buster Keaton. I play silent stuff for my students, and they dont think its funny, he says. They want something thats jumpy and crude and in-your-face. Anything that takes time to develop is way too slow for them.All kinds of comedyClassic comedians such as Mr. Hope, Rodney Dangerfield and Henny Youngman were called necklace comedians, he says, because they would string series of one-liners together. A lot of that comedy grew out of vaudeville, he adds. Then theres the more hyperkinetic form of comedy, as practiced by the late Robin Williams and Dane Cook, that was popular for a time. And there are ranters, such as the late Sam Kinison and Lewis Black, who sputters and raves. Theres the Jerry Seinfeld style of observational comedy, and the absurdist kind of comedy of stand-ups such as Emo Phillips and Andy Erikson. And while its a basic ground rule that you shouldnt insult or offend an audience, In comedy, rules are made to be broken, Mr. Walch says. Its the nature of the art, its very transgressive. (Some comics) do things deliberately to be offensive, but they do it masterfully. Louis C.K., for example, does material that no one else can pull off. Hes a master of taking stuff that would be horribly offensive and making it into a philosophical piece. But its as crude as can be. Its like singing, acting, writing. There is so much variation in basic styles. (In humor) you can go in a million different directions, he says. The person onstage might be like their personality on steroids. Like youplus, says Mr. Walch. You take all your quirks and really magnify them. Or, its a persona. Sometimes its a very distinct character, like Pee Wee Herman, he says, or Larry the Cable Guy, who Mr. Walch worked with before he became one of the kings of redneck humor, when he was just Dan Whitney, a guy doing stand-up. He doesnt have that kind of accent (in real life), Mr. Walch says about Larry the Cable Guys twang. He has a New Jersey kind of accent. (Mr. Whitney was born in Nebraska and went to high school in West Palm Beach.) But when he started doing Larry the Cable Guy, it all took off for him. Its all made up, the accent, and is very scripted. Good comedians make it all look offthe-cuff easy, but stand-up is a very deliberate thing, he says. It might seem as if theyre just getting up and talking or telling a funny story, but theyve figured out at which points theyll get a laugh, and where to place a line that sets them up for a joke that comes later on. Its almost choreographed, he says. Its hard work. The payoff is making the crowd laugh. Theres nothing better in the world than doing that.

Id had the Maui Tuna Crunch Salad on a previous visit, however, and knew it was just what I wanted on this blistering afternoon. Once again, it didnt disappoint. Eight more-than-bite-sized chunks of sushi-grade seared tuna came with a mound of crisp organic greens tossed with pineapple, toasted almonds, julienned jicama and a just-sweet-enough sesame dressing. I was so happy and full I even turned down my companions offer of a bite of his flatbread. One More Thing: The seasonal Handmade Refreshments at Seasons 52 are always interesting.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOAre wine clubs worth it?There are lots of people who dont know much about wine but, happily enough, would like to. One of the easiest ways to introduce yourself to the delights of the wine world is the wine club. You subscribe, tell them your preferences (reds, whites, an assortment) and they select and ship you a number of bottles on a regular basis. You learn about a wide array of varietals and winegrowing regions without having to puzzle through a bunch of strange place names. Shipments also also include helpful information about the wines you receive: tasting notes, facts about the grape varietals and regions where theyre grown, sometimes a map of the area. I receive mailers from various kinds of wine clubs, and they seem to be categorized by their (generally mistaken) estimation of my net worth. Some offer four to six wines for as little as $5 a bottle, while others, like the club run by The Wall Street Journal, are obviously aiming for a much more well-resourced member base. All clubs (except one, which I discuss below) offer various types of wine from many regions of the world, and theyll take back any you dont like and issue you a credit. They also offer discounts to get you to sign up. Wine Insiders, for example, will send you an assortment of 15 bottles for a very low introductory price, as will the WSJ club. Of course, you then sign up for automatic shipments on a monthly or quarterly basis. Aside from the relative level of the wines you get, the clubs are pretty much the same. I recently discovered a very different national wine club thats actually headquartered in Southwest Florida. Its called Direct Cellars, and theyve put an interesting spin on the club concept. When you join, you receive a wide selection of very enjoyable wines, but you also become a representative, with the opportunity to enjoy the wines and invite your friends to join, as well. When they do, you earn income. Direct Cellars is, in truth, a wine club with a multi-level marketing opportunity built in but that can be a real positive. After all, think about how much money motivated, enterprising people have made with Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Amway, etc. They win Cadillacs. Long story short, clubs give you the opportunity to enjoy wines you might never find or buy on your own as well as the enjoyment of discovery and learning. And one club even offers a chance to make money or at least to enjoy your monthly shipment of wine for less even for free. In my last article, I mentioned wines available at Costco from a company called Orvino Imports. Here are the ones we enjoyed most: Cancello del Barone Barolo Riserva 2009 A bit lighter in the glass than most Barolos, which are usually very fullbodied wines. This one delivers on the palate, though, with flavors of cinnamon, tar, smoke, cherry and a slight vegetal hint. WW 91. About $40. Bosco Montepulciano dAbruzzo 2012 Sometimes its hard to remember that Montepulciano is both the name of a place and a grape, and they have nothing to do with each other. This wine is from Abruzzo, and its different. Dark ruby color with fairly typical scents and flavors of cherry, warm earth and licorice. WW 88. $13. Tinazzi Tenute Valleselle Amarone Della Valpolicella Aureum Acinum 2013 Valpolicella is almost always a blend of three grapes: corvina, rondinella and molinara. This wine is inky black in the glass, hinting at flavors of concentrated fruit and warm earth. Theres a spine of minerality, too, with notes of wet stones. Not as sweet as most Amarones, which we enjoyed. WW 90. About $45. Maestro di Antiche Castelli Brunello 2010 Terrific. Although light and translucent in the glass, it delivers rich and balanced fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry as well as nutmeg and smoke. This one will take you right back to Tuscany. WW 92-93. Around $34. Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Wine comes in bottles of different shapes and colors. Does that mean anything? Tom S., Fort MyersA. Wine comes in dark bottles (usually green or brown) to protect the contents from light, which spoils it. The color and shape of the bottle are generally the result of long tradition in the particular winegrowing area. It is uncertain why some wines, such as Sauternes, are bottled in clear glass. Most are not. Jerry Greenfield, The Wine Whisperer, is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group. His book Secrets of the Wine Whisperer is available on Amazon and at winewhisperer.com. jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com Regretfully disavows itself from any prior or present perception of affiliation with the Wine Whisperer. Because we view wine as a unique, biological mixture, which is affected by weather, soil, and certainly the skill of the wine maker, it requires special care. Our inventory is, therefore, maintained under temperature and humidity control, with the bottles being tilted to maintain moisture of the cork. Contrary to our philosophy, Costco preserves wine as being like any beverage, thereby treating it like soda water. The Wine Whisperer fails to recognize this significant difference.The Wine Cellar of NaplesMercato, 9118 Strada Place, Suite 8110 Naples, FL 34108*Comments may be directed to the owner/manager @ (856) 278-2356* (239) 631-6088 www.thewinecellarofnaples.com The Wine Cellar of Naples

CHEF Q & AChef/instructor doing prep work for culinary hub in Bonita BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comNaples has a wealth of chefs who garner praise from around the globe, but not all culinary masters prefer to turn their masterpieces out to a packed dining room night after night. Kristina San Filippo is one such chef: well-known in Naples and Bonita Springs for her cooking classes at The Good Life and her private catering operation, she has plans to open a culinary hub in Bonita Springs. Slated for a September opening, Purple Spoon will incorporate Ms. San Filippos passions for teaching, local ingredients and gratifying dining events into a space that includes retail, learning and dining opportunities for local foodies. Read on to learn more about this enterprising young chef and her goals for her newest venture. Q: What is your culinary background? A: I started working in the restaurant business when I was 17 as a prep and pastry cook before earning a degree in culinary arts from The Culinary Institute of America in 2000 and a bachelors degree in hospitality management from the Collins School at California Polytechnic in 2003. Since then I have spent time working in various front-ofthe-house positions. I spent some very enjoyable years on the pastry and hot line sides of the restaurant business, but it is a tough life to live both physically and emotionally. I was lucky to fall into a culinary teaching position when I moved to Southwest Florida. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: My dads Sicilian family always makes cooking the center of any gathering (along with poker, but I never go into the game). So my family has used cooking as a way of bringing people together my whole life. Combine that with the artistic element of transforming raw ingredients into beautiful, nourishing food, and it was a natural progression that cooking became a career direction. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: My dark chocolate and red wine torte with cashew crust is certainly the most popular dessert that I offer at catering events. Lately, I have been using grass-fed lamb at different classes. Lamb in a braised recipe has been very well received, even by guests who come thinking lamb is just fatty or gamey. Q: What do you find challenging? A: Keeping pricing for events approachable. We use only stellar ingredients at my culinary events; some of those ingredients are very reasonably priced (local produce!), while others are a bit more of an investment. I hope people recognize that a three-course cooking class is not just purchasing food to fill the belly, but purchasing a cooking experience that will be with them in the future. Q: Youre most well known in the area for your cooking classes and catering services. Why did you decide to go off-script and stop working in restaurants? A: Working the hot line of a restaurant kitchen is extremely tough on the body, and the long hours expected of a chef are a huge damper on enjoying a family life or pursuing interests outside of my career. I wanted to reclaim a bit of freedom and take better care of myself physically, so I took the risk of being self-employed as a caterer and culinary instructor. Q: You studied and worked extensively in California and Hawaii before arriving in Southwest Florida. Could you compare the culinary tastes among these tourism economies? A: Well, at least from the perspective that I had at the restaurant where I was a sous chef on Kauai, if a restaurant puts macadamia nuts, coconut milk, pineapple or tuna on any menu, 80 percent of the tourist diners will gobble it up. In California, it certainly varied between the cities I lived in. In general, guests were more open to unusual flavor combinations as a more creative approach to cooking. Here in Southwest Florida, its all about the seafood. Q: You have a varied resume that includes front-of-the-house management, running kitchens, catering and teaching. How did all those experiences prepare you to open a culinary center like Purple Spoon? A: My diverse choice of jobs through the years has shown me almost every side of the restaurant and hospitality business. Those jobs have been in a variety of locations that revealed the ever-changing preferences of customers. Purple Spoon is going to incorporate many elements of the culinary world, which is why we are calling it a culinary hub. Plus, I have learned from each job how NOT to do things that will lead to an unhappy staff, disappointed customers or a messy kitchen. Q: What excites you about Purple Spoon? A: This food venue will be where eating healthful meals meets sustainability, and the meals are actually delicious as well. I want to give my customers appropriate tools like cooking knowledge, stellar ingredients and approachable recipes so making great food at home is accessible. Purple Spoon will be where people who love to cook, or those who want to pursue a more happy relationship with cooking, can find all of those tools. I am very excited about the weekly Locally Grown Produce Market, which will start in October and be a wonderful gathering place for people who appreciate good food from a local source. Q: How does living and working in Southwest Florida affect or inspire your work? A: I am certainly inspired by the amazing foods we can grow in the sandy Southwest Florida soil or harvest from the Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico. My goal is to use what is presently at its prime. Letting accessible ingredients be my guide is much more fulfilling then spending excessive energy on trying to exactly replicate a dish from some place else or from another time in history. Q: Can you describe one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: A favorite culinary experience was hosting the Farm Tour + Lunch at Inyoni Farm last spring on a day when it was so extremely windy the tent we were serving lunch underneath tried to take flight. The whole time, guests were laughing at the seasonal display they encountered when eating outside where the ingredients in their lunch were grown. It was a lovely day of watching of people who care about where their food is sourced interact with the elements of nature that make that food possible. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: I just ask the customers who sit in front of me at cooking classes. I ask what they find to be delicious or interesting in the recipes I ask what they want to learn in future classes. However, my continuously visited resources are the Americas Test Kitchen radio show and cookbooks, and the books On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee and Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.

Kalea Bays First Tower Reaches 19th Floor Clubhouse also under constructionKalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has set a new standard for luxury residential high-rise living. The incredibly-designed residences at Kalea Bay, combined with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cocohatchee River and a pristine nature preserve, have propelled the community to become one of the hottest-selling properties this year. As of mid-July, the construction on our first tower has reached the 19th floor, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. At the current pace, the building should be celebrating its topping off around the third week of August. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. 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. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: This recent aerial of Kalea Bay shows the first tower reaching skyward as construction also continues on the clubhouse on the far right. The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences. Kalea Bays first tower was designed with rooftop amenities, including a sky lounge, spectacular pool and open-air fitness center.

The walk-able lifestyle and availability of one and two-story, two and three bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces continue to generate strong sales and luxury homebuyer traffic. Three previously sold Phase I models are available for guided tours with a sales associate. Naples Square Phase II is being built by Suffolk Construction and BCBE Construction. The masonry block on the west side of the building has been completed and is approximately 50% completed on the east side up to the third floor. Application of the stucco finish has started on the west sides exterior walls. Windows have been installed in the west half of the building and interior unit framing and mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations are underway. The roof has been installed on the west half and is being dried in. Seventy-five percent of the garage level concrete floor has been poured. In addition, the second fountain included in Naples Squares attractive Third Avenue streetscape has been completed.

The redesign provides a larger area for poolside seating and outdoor dining. The new design includes tables under the pavilion adjacent to the pool. Outside the pavilion, two gas grills with sinks and two seating areas with firepits will enhance the outdoor socializing experience.

Other amenities include a fitness center, secure under-building parking, private storage, and bicycle storage within the garage. The landscaped streetscapes, amenity courtyards, and fountains that have become Naples Squares signature were designed by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. Andreas design merges pavered roadways, entry water features, and fountain roundabouts with Washingtonia and Medjool Date palm trees and a mix of plantings. The streetscapes are lined with palms interspersed with flower beds, strips of green, and landscaped areas separating the sidewalks and buildings. Fountains at the roundabouts have a cooling effect. Intersections, crossings, and building entries are identified by palms. Building corners adjacent to the communitys roundabouts are softened by scattered height Washingtonia palms. Andreas amenity deck design incorporates green spaces, Asian Jasmine ground cover, raised-planters with date palms, and arbors with vine plantings. Additional planters provide separation between the terraces of the garden level residences and the edges of the plaza. The Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 South Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples is open daily. Visit NaplesSquare.com.

Majestic Palms will consist of two, 4-story buildings including spacious residences featuring balconies, walk-in closets in the master suite, spacious great rooms, open floor plans, and every home comes with an assigned, personal carport. We are extremely pleased with the exciting reception the new community has received since opening our sales gallery just a few months ago, says Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez. Buyers are attracted to the condominiums central location in a gated community as well as the fact that our homes are very spacious and are a great value, she adds. Majestic Palms prime location just off historic McGregor Boulevard is just minutes from the beaches of Sanibel and Fort Myers, as well as a multitude of merchants and shopping centers, schools, fine restaurants and high-profile sports-and-entertainment venueslike the CenturyLink Sports Complex and JetBlue Park.
