Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park COMMENTARY Whos in charge?To a wide variety of humans for whom a democratic republic is about as tenable as a vegetable garden on the moon, this must be the most baffling of our American eccentricities: The president is not in charge. Neither are the generals or the priests. Men are not in charge, Christians and Jews are not in charge, women are not in charge, whites are not in charge, blacks are not in charge (they never were) and even Native Americans are not in charge. The Congress and the Supreme Court? The 1 percent? The corporations? Wall Street? The animals in the city zoo? Naw, not even close. So who the hell is in charge of this ship of fools known as the United States of America? Im sorry to tell you this, pal, but you are. And so are you, maam (finally). I am, too. And fortunately my wife, who is a lot smarter and cooler than I am, is also in charge. That helps. We need all the talent we can get. Yes sir, its us red-blooded Americans, an expression Ive always loved. Cut us and we all bleed the same color, my late mentor and point man, Mr. Burdie C. Baker, used to say: He was as black as my grandmothers coal shed and as redblooded as you and me and The Donald and Hillary who want to be in charge but arent. And wont be. Its us. Let me be blunt without being belligerent, I hope: If you arent registered to vote, get your sorry butt down to the elections office and do it. You have missed the deadline for the Florida primary so register for November. If you know some people some boneheads or cynics who arent registered to vote explain it to them. Theyre in charge. So get the hell away from Xbox One or social media apps or the refrigerator, the mirror or the bar and go register. Takes about 10 minutes. I dont care if youre a dropout, a drunk, unemployed, all-knowing, a rap star, the owner of a Ford 750, the queen of selfies or the best friend of Jesus get your rear in gear. Want to bust our enemies and confuse the hell out of them? Vote. Be a woman, and vote. Man up, and vote. Be a redneck, an immigrant, a cracker, a Coloradoan, a chocolate bunny or a communist, and vote. Why? Because youre in charge. As better thinkers than I have noted, if the Indians had quit dancing around fires and having cookouts and marshmallow roasts when they were in charge if they had just developed a more rigorous immigration policy with a lot of red tape we wouldnt be facing all these problems today. The mighty Calusa understood that right off the bat when Ponce De Leon first showed up on the Gulf Coast exactly 501 years ago. They shot him in the tail with a poison arrow and sent him packing to Cuba, where he died. The place has never recovered. But the Calusa couldnt get along with anybody else, either, let alone the Spanish. Before long, they disappeared like flowers in a bullring. So now were in charge. Obviously theres the little matter of how to vote. The most important thing to remember is this: When you step into the voting booth, think about money. People used to say, Money is the root of all evil. I dont believe that. Money is a tool. If its used properly its a good thing. We red-blooded Americans happen to have a lot of money, and were going to pick a man or a woman (a variety of men and women in a variety of official duties) to manage the operation and the money for us. So when you think about money, think about how theyre going to use it and who is going to get richer when they use it that way. Heres what I mean. We now have a dangerous water problem in Florida. This isnt complicated, at bottom. Weve polluted it, either because we didnt realize we were doing it, or because we could make more money at the time by not worrying about polluting it. But now we know. So when we vote, we have to decide: do we pick managers willing to spend a lot of money? Theres no cheap way to do this now and everybody knows that. Or do we pick the others, the people who merely talk about fixing our water problem? Theyll spend as little as possible to save face and stretch the problem out for 40 years or so. That way, their friends and campaign contributors can keep making money without having to clean up their acts. Heres another money problem we can fix in the voting booth: the shooter dilemma. Weve got these wackos with assault rifles gunning down voters and kids and cops all over the place. And this problem has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the Second Amendment. Let me repeat myself: Its about money. If those of us who remain in charge pick managers who can stop them from getting their wacko hands on these guns, the problem will be greatly reduced. We could have stopped Sandy Hook. We could have stopped Aurora or Atlanta. We could have stopped Dallas and Baton Rouge and Orlando and Fort Myers, where mentally ill Americans killed innocent people. But to pass better gun control laws that keep wackos away from easy-access guns, were going to have to agree to hurt somebodys wallet: the wallets of gun manufacturers. The wallets of National Rifle Association officials and lobbyists, the wealthiest fear-mongering lobbyists in America. Were in charge. Not them. Us. You and I. So Ill see you down at the precinct, pal and you, too, maam. Not the police precinct because theyre not in charge. The voting precinct, because we are. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Unveiling the Hillary we supposedly dont know has been the perpetual, elusive goal of Clintons handlers for decades, with the Democratic convention in Philadelphia the latest stab at it. Hillary has made more reintroductions than should be allowed for a person who has never gone away. Political writer Jonathan Rauch has a 14-year rule that posits no one is elected president more than 14 years after winning election as a governor or senator (the traditional jumping-off points for the presidency). Elected to the Senate from New York in 2000, Hillary is technically only a couple of years past this benchmark for staleness except this doesnt do justice to how long she has been around, and especially how long it feels shes been around. Bill Clinton announced his campaign for president in October 1991. Hillary has been with us ever since. During that campaign, Bill famously told us wed get two for one. Its been more than 14 years since she vouched for Bill Clinton on Minutes after the allegations of an affair with Gennifer Flowers surfaced (1992), tried to remake American health care (1993), wrote the book It Takes a Village to soften her image (1996) and vouched for Bill in yet another sex scandal (1998). It has been more than 14 years just from one Hillary scandal with a wholly implausible explanation (her amazingly lucrative cattle trades that were first reported in 1994) to another (her private server as secretary of state that was first reported in 2015). This is not to make a fetish of Jonathan Rauchs 14-year rule such rules of thumb are made to be broken but it speaks to how utterly, drearily, inescapably familiar Hillary Clinton is. Her handlers want to believe that people dont dislike Hillary; they just dont know her. Even if this is true, not being able to project in public qualities that make you appealing in private makes you by definition a poor politician. Over 25 years, the public surely has attained an accurate-enough picture of Hillary Clinton. They may not know all the details of her advocacy work as a young woman, but they have seen her smash-mouth partisanship, her grating insincerity, her gross money-grubbing, her serial dishonesties, her cat-on-ahot-tin-roof caution and her grind-out ambition that has lacked a light touch or any poetry. Hillary always points out how she is a target for attack, but the two controversies that have dogged her in the past year were entirely of her own doing. No enemy of hers forced her to circumvent the rules to try to keep her official emails off the grid, or to take $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for three speeches. She did this to herself because she thought she could get away with it. In a Minutes interview, she complained that a different standard applies to her, a strange plaint after the FBI director gave her a pass on her emails. This suggests the problem isnt that people dont know her so much as that she lacks all self-awareness. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONA rising tide sinks boats with holesIf you live in Florida and have never been through a hurricane, your hurricane readiness is probably rated on a scale between slim and none. You are unprepared for a category anything. Be honest: Your survival checklist is buried under old tax returns in a desk drawer or went the way of the recycle bin. A decade of summers has flown by with nary a hurricane in sight. You have been seduced into complacency by a stormless lull across multiple summers. Your sense of urgency is lost, and when you suffer its pangs, they come and go like the gentle lap of the sea on an endless shore. It leaves no effect whatsoever. Bottom line? There are no stormassociated what-ifs disturbing your peace of mind. During the heat of the day, you bask in the quiet, escaping the fog of humidity with a tall and frosty. Life is good. Ah, but the preachers of hurricane preparedness have not forgotten you. They appear like clockwork when the hurricane season rolls around. You listen up or try to; but the short courses are about as exciting as an oil change. You make a note to self: If a hurricanes cone of uncertainty darkens your door, you must be ready. But the priority of the thought is soon lost, eclipsed by the excellent day ahead. So you say you are prepared; but are you really? Most of the experts dont think so. You are known among these skeptics as a hurricane virgin. They know it will take a hurricane experience to change your slackers attitude; and since you live here, it is inevitable you are going to have one. Till then, here are some facts: The hurricane season in the North Atlantic runs from the first of June to Nov. 30. Experts say most of the action occurs August through September. But hold on. Of the hurricanes making landfall in Florida over the last 150 years, half struck South Florida before Sept. 10, and the other half hit after that date, according to Ken Kaye, a veteran reporter for the Sun-Sentinel. He does the math for us: It means the median date for South Floridas hurricane activity is Sept. 21. If you thought getting mostly past Labor Day was the downhill slope for hurricane activity in South Florida, he advises you to revise your thinking. Since a major hurricane has not made landfall in Florida in a decade, you might be forgiven for thinking Florida will go on escaping the destiny of its geography but dont. The state is, by definition, hurricane central, a thumb hanging out in the Atlantic just begging for South African winds and warm waters in the Atlantic to mix it up and do their worst. But that isnt all. The state is also ground zero for the threat of rising seas. Florida has 1,350 miles of coastline. The coastline represents the source of nearly half of the states annual GDP. The bad news? Says Climate Central, Some 2.4 million people and 1.3 million homes sit within 4 feet of the local high tide line. Sea level rise is more than doubling the risk of a storm surge at this level in South Florida by 2030. The majority of coastal residents are unaware of this growing threat. Storm surges create devastation on steroids and account for the majority of hurricane-related deaths. Most residents are unprepared for a catastrophic storm though they think they are. A subjective measure of what hurricane readiness actually means says otherwise. Thats a problem. These and other issues were a recent topic of a live webinar hosted by the Metropolitan Center of Florida International University previewing its forthcoming study, Addressing Coastal Vulnerabilities and Mitigating Losses. The review highlighted the results of the centers annual hurricane poll, including an assessment of the culture of hurricane preparedness among residents within a nine-county area in South Florida. The annual poll has been conducted for a decade. It provides a snapshot of the longer term trends characterizing public perceptions of sea level rise and mitigation of hurricane-related flooding. Matthew Walker, Mabel A. Rodriguez and Dr. Maria Ilcheva conducted the research. Multiple trends are increasing Floridas vulnerability. The most egregious is the binge development occurring along Floridas coastline. Others include the decline in hurricane preparedness and risk awareness among residents; and, because the state has lagged in its response, local governments and agencies are becoming by default the first line of defense against inland flooding. The study also says the states Regional Planning Councils all use the same model to create master evacuation plans in the event of major storms. The model does not take sea level rise into account in making flooding projections. Thats a little like building a lifeboat with a hole in it to escape a rising sea. They must know it. The model is called the Sea, Lake and Overland Surge from Hurricanes model, or SLOSH for short. I kid you not. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

BEST FURNITURE STORE 2015 PROFILE IN PARADISECraig Kelley brings his NFL experience to Premier SothebysCraig Kelley had a distinguished 29-year career with the Indianapolis Colts. He was the clubs top media specialist for a quarter century, helping players, coaches and football executives mesh with reporters to successfully promote one of the NFLs top teams. As the Colts longest-tenured PR executive, and one of the NFLs longest ever, Craig artfully established trust, maintained honesty, attended acutely to details and formed lasting relationships that extended for years in the nations most visible sport. He served under eight head coaches and worked with five Colts who reached the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Eric Dickerson, Marshall Faulk, Marvin Harrison, Bill Polian and Tony Dungy). He served on the NFLs PR staff at 16 Super Bowls and one Pro Bowl, and his PR department was cited as the NFLs best by the Professional Football Writers Association. No one ever served an organization with more class and distinction, sports commentator Jim Nantz says about Craig. He is a byproduct of the ultimate team environment: the NFL. Craig, who has also co-authored A Quarterback for the Ages, a book about Peyton Manning, holds degrees from Louisiana State University and Ohio University. He served on the board of the Winged Foot Scholarship Foundation in Naples and is a member of the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication Hall of Fame. In his second career, he works with Premier Sothebys International Realty on Marco Island and Naples. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at bobharden. com. Past shows are archived on the website. bobHARDENbobharden@hotmail.com Mentor: My father, Jack, and my rst NFL boss, Greg Suit of the Saints. Dad taught me the importance of communicating effectively with people and earning their trust completely, and Greg demonstrated it in the NFL. Something your mother was always right about: Attend church, study your Bible, maintain your reputation, treat everyone the same and save half of your money.Where did you grow up? The New Orleans suburb of Metairie, just off the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain. It was a terri c place to grow up. When and why did you rst come to Collier County? It was in 1997 on a vacation scouting places to eventually retire. We went over the bridge to Marco and knew immediately wed found it. We bought a home before leaving town. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A train engineer. First job: I mowed almost every lawn on my street from second grade through high school. Needless to say, I dislike St. Augustine grass. Its nearly indestructible. Believe me, I tried almost everything. Guilty pleasure: Listening to music (Dylan, The Allman Brothers, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson) too loudly. One thing on your bucket list: To play the Augusta National. Theres nothing else on my list, never has been. I know there are local Augusta National members who read this column. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could play the piano well. Twelve years of lessons only made me a fast typist. Advice for kids/young adults: Be the best at things that cost nothing: manners, punctuality, work ethic and integrity. These cost nothing to hone and will cost you everything if you dont. Also, understand the business value of golf. Something thats been on your mind: It seems like were living in the Book of Revelations. It would be wise to have your re insurance fully paid up. Must-see place to take rst-time visitors: Fifth Avenue, Third Street South, Gordon Drive and Gulf Shore Boulevard. Something youll never understand: Greed, dishonesty and a mean spirit. If people had none of these, what a great world we would have. Something you wish could go back to the way it once was: Cellphones and the internet are important, but people should interact verbally like we used to.Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: One of my favorite college courses was literature and poetry. What are you most proud of? My parents. They set the example in education, etiquette and comportment. If I fail, its not their fault. Something the Paradise Coast really needs: Smart growth to keep its charm intact and its waters clean. Talking points with Craig Kelley
of wine on her evening horizon, and the ringing din of a dynamic career in public education humming through her head. Ive been retired for three weeks. Its such a luxury, she confides, searching for words. And Im one of the lucky ones. I loved my job. Now she can call herself the former executive director of schools development in the Lee County School District, the Sunshine States ninth-largest and one of about 70. She could be from anywhere else in the state, though, and come to the same conclusion about the profession, she says: Its a lot thornier than it used to be to teach school. Ms. Folaros spent 13 years teaching English and journalism right out of Ole Miss, 20 years as a champion principal in the words of her colleague, Dr. Jeff McCullers, and nine years in district headquarters trying to make life better for her schools, their staffs and especially their students all of which is why Florida Weekly has come calling. She knows what shes talking about. So do other administrators, teachers and education activists in the region and the state who agreed to share their views of the noble profession here. At least one disturbing conclusion can be drawn from what they tell us: Teachers now face what is arguably the most difficult and demanding stampede of challenges in the contemporary history of public education. And thats not good for students who face, in turn, a range of contemporary social challenges they might not have experienced en masse in previous generations. For teachers, there is less time than ever before to teach, they say. There is data crunching and lack of trust and constant state-mandated testing of stressed students. Teacher evaluations and oneyear contracts are based on the success of students as measured in tests created by people who dont teach. There is pay that will not cover the costs of education and family life. In the face of all this, what makes a great teacher, we asked them and conversely, what makes it difficult to be a great teacher? Why are so many leaving a profession so essential to our futures? Teachers are ill-prepared for the demands of the current system. So its not just a matter of how to make better teachers. Its also how teachers are made to work within their system now, says Sandy Stenoff, co-founder of The Opt Out Florida Network, a grass-roots organization based in Orlando that advocates a variety of assessments instead of a single, state-mandated test. If you look at other professions, the masters all have one thing in common, she adds: Excellent mentorship an expert under whom they really trained, learned the best techniques. Doctors, lawyers, even craftsmen. We dont do that in education anymore. It would help to reduce attrition, too. But expert teachers are leaving. They cant teach the way they know teaching works best. Laura Rider, a marine biology and environmental science teacher at Fort Myers High School, puts it this way: Loving kids, having a passion for sharing knowledge and concepts that makes for good teaching. Being able to be creative without walls and boundaries and getting kids in the field or the theater is good teaching. But being bound to test results, data and micromanaged by VAM (Value-Added Model) scores thats not good teaching. It breaks my heart to see where we are. Although Ms. Rider has hung on for 38 years because she has the passion, many have not. Having an adequate, effective corps of experienced teachers is a huge problem everywhere in this country but particularly in Florida because of our growth, Ms. Folaros acknowledges. Although growth may lead to wealth in real estate, construction, the service industries and others, education sits in the back of that bus, according to the National Education Association. The NEA ranks Florida 39th nationwide for salaries. Four of every 10 teachers who start their careers dont make it past the five-year mark, which causes everyone grief, and costs money, experience and quality teaching. That dropout rate of teachers in Florida is 15 to 20 percent higher than the national average, says the NEA. When teachers depend on the success of their students in tests only to gain single-year contracts, they begin to feel threatened, they say especially since no one student is like another. Poverty, either economic or cultural, for example, may play a role in how both students and teachers do in some schools. And its a misunderstood enemy, says Dr. McCullers. This is surprisingly not well-appreciated by non-educators, even though the Coleman Report came out 50 years ago. Children in poverty suffer horrendous damage that permanently and directly affects memory, cognitive ability, sociability, behavior, emotional capacity and school resilience. I worry that sometimes people mistakenly assume that children in poverty merely have to make do with a less-fashionable pair of shoes. The reality is that childhood poverty causes brain damage. Unfortunately, therefore, Were in a unique situation in Florida: Growth always is going to require us to be constantly sourcing new teachers, Ms. Folaros says. Universities and colleges dont even begin to produce enough teachers, so we have invested heavily in recruiting from out of state for more than a decade. Its proven to be successful for us, but it doesnt solve the problem. The problem is keeping talented people in the classroom even in the face of a range of problems, says Michael Riley, a longtime teacher, administrator and now spokesman for Charlotte County schools: One problem is respect. They dont feel they have it. Another is financial salaries. You go to a four-year college, you get out, and you have a relatively low-paying job. A lot of teachers have to have part-time jobs, too, which is hard on families. Testing is a major issue right now. Theres a pre-test in August, tests during the year and a test at the end of the year, so you can move forward. Consequently, administrators are getting creative, since they rarely have a lot more money to throw at the problem. What else might keep teachers here? asks Dr. McCullers, who taught for many years in Lee County schools. He now serves as director of program grants and development, and liaison to public charter schools. If Im young and bright and ambitious and talented, am I more likely to stay (a) in a school where I get extra pay or (b) in a school where I might not get as much extra pay but I am provided with a meaningful voice in school decisions or given higher responsibility for training other teachers or get to work with a mutually supportive team of high-impact teachers? Were experimenting with all of this, looking for a new model for teacher career ladders. Our early experiences with the new role of teacher leader have been quite successful. There is a strong sense that teachers leading teachers is the way forward, and this model is spreading rapidly through the district. If the system has massive weaknesses right now, it also has very good people, it seems people who advocate passionately, even when they leave. Can all this be changed? Yes, says Bruce Linser, a musical theater teacher and outgoing dean of dramatic arts at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. I think we need fewer administrators and more teachers. We need fewer people telling us how to do our jobs, and more people who know how to do this, and want and love to do this, being allowed to do this. Without all the strings and standardization. Im not arguing against oversight, I think thats important. There are things that need to be taught and learned and I totally agree with that. But all the extra duties of teachers the extra programs and management requirements inhibit the teaching theyre called to do. One education pundit, Jamie Vollmer, traced the advent of extra duties and programs in teaching through the centuries and decades from the earliest basic requirements essentially reading, writing and arithmetic to the current situation. In the 1970s, education began to require drug and alcohol abuse teaching, special education and Title IX programs (for girls and women who had little or no sports and other opportunities), environmental education and so on. In the 1980s, educators added keyboarding and computer education, global, multicultural and non-sexist programs, English as a second language and teen pregnancy education, full-day kindergarten, child abuse monitoring and more. In the 1990s programs began to include conflict resolution, HIV/AIDS education, expanded talented and gifted opportunities and so on. Finally in the new century, schools introduced new safety programs, bullying prevention, anti-harassment policies, personal finance and media literacy, health and wellness programs, and, of course, an explosion of new tests and digital programs and equipment to go with No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top. In all of that, says Mr. Riley, not one minute has been added to the education day of teachers. All these subjects, all these new requirements, and not one minute added to the day. It puts a lot of pressure on the teacher. Considering all this from the luxurious vantage of her well-deserved retirement, Ms. Folaros offers a concluding observation: For teachers trying to do their job? It could no more be done in a seven-hour day than I could run a four-minute mile. Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia, also spent 18 years as a U.S. congressman. He is now president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and author of Raising the Grade: How High School Reform Can Save Our Youth and Our Nation, among others. He spoke to Florida Weekly by telephone from West Virginia.Teaching needs to be recognized for the true profession it is. We have high expectations of teachers, just as we have high expectations of lawyers, doctors and others. We need to give them the tools so they can exercise discretion in their classrooms. They contend TEACHERSFrom page 1WISE FOLAROS Teachers are ill-prepared for the demands of the current system. So its not just a matter of how to make better teachers. Its also how teachers are made to work within their system now ... Expert teachers are leaving. They cant teach the way they know teaching works best.

We dont have to keep beating them up all the time. When I take a child to a doctor, that doctor has to work with different children and situations, not just mine. So why is that different than when I take that child to a classroom, where 20 to 30 students have different situations. We need to expect a lot of teachers, but give them the tools they need to do a lot. Core content is important, but were asking our teachers to respond to the needs of a modern society and economy, to develop students who can think critically, solve problems, and use facts. A student today has to learn how to learn, and to apply what they know. High-stakes testing? If you want to have a high-stakes test, thats valid for one measurement, but its no longer valid across the board for a range of demands. And if youre going to pay teachers based on the test scores of students, make that only one criteria. Have several different indicators. Im an optimist (about education in the future). Were at a true crossroads. Were seeing a lot of different cultures coming together in our society. Sometimes its rough, but we have the ability to learn from each other. So teachers are the new true professional because they have to relate to a number of different cultures in the classroom, but build the commonality of our country and our values. We need to let them take hold of this. The more teachers are defining what they do in the classroom and what their needs are, the better we can support them. Weve been preparing teachers essentially the same way for the last 150 years. So what do they need now? They have to be self-governed, to decide whos qualified and who isnt, and thats tough. But trying to micromanage teachers that wont work. Dr. Kathy Piechura-Couture, now professor of education at Stetson University and a researcher at the Nina B. Hollis Institute of Educational Reform, spent seven years as a publicschool teacher working with special education children.One of the things former Gov. Bob Wise said on our (NPR) panel was that we need to treat teachers as professionals. Were so busy micromanaging it becomes overwhelming. I joined some teachers in a workshop at the end of the school year it was in Deland, at Woodward Elementary. The school had been rated an A school for years, but it suddenly dropped to a C same wonderful teachers and they were devastated. Some had tears in their eyes. They were saying, Why? I feel like a first-year teacher. Its because the standards for achievement change every year. Youre a teacher, and youre trying to create seven lesson plans every day, for 180 days. And youre expected to teach with fidelity, a term that means follow the district standards. But they change. Every year. Its a moving target. And if youre not on the right page at the right time, they can fire you or put you on probation. If every kid is supposed to be on the same page at the same time, youre assuming each kid has the same skill sets. Teachers who can adjust to their kids needs are better professionals. But if they dont happen to be on the right page the day the inspector arrives, they get punished. Teachers are there not for the money or the test score; theyre there for the child. But they become disillusioned. We have legislators who pass all these laws, and many of them are lawyers. If they were given 22 clients at one time, and told they have to win every one of their cases, they would better understand. But lawyers and these legislators arent like that. They look at which one is a slam dunk, which one will pay the most or they might not even take those clients. They dont give teachers that choice. We dont get to reject the blueberries. We have to make blueberry pie or cobbler or jam with the blueberries we get. Some are damaged. Some are bruised. y y > Hendry County > Hendry County teachers average 5.66 years, the lowest in teachers average 5.66 years, the lowest in th e stat e. the state.

Laura Rider teaches marine biology and environmental science at Fort Myers High School.Im in my 38th year. I went into teaching not for the money but because I have a passion for it. When I started there was a trust among the administration they trusted their teachers. Staff were following the curriculum given to them by state, and they were given rein to be as creative as they wanted to be in teaching the requirements. We could take students outside, take them on field trips and we were encouraged to do so. But somewhere along the line, people decided that suddenly teachers werent accountable. So the non-educators needed to get their fingers into designing standards massive amounts of standards and designing tests that could possibly check those standards, and that would drive education. As a result of that, teachers are no longer willing to go out of the classroom because of time, and teachers who refuse to let students go out of the classroom because theyre afraid they wont past the tests. This has cut down on a variety of events that used to be part of school life guest speakers or pep rallies depending on the grade level, for example so education becomes nothing but standard-based cattle-driving, straight into the slaughterhouse. Until the last eight or 10 years, I had never seen so many children who are anxiety-ridden, stressed, disinterested in school. The pleasure and joy of teaching is gone with these evaluations Throughout most of my career, your principal would come in and say, Hey, were going to do an observation, and you would say, Great, Im doing a great lesson. In the teaching environment now, anybody walks in at any time with their iPad, and theyre checking a multitude of criteria. Whether you have your data wall up, if your date is on the board, if your essential question is on the board, if your objectives and your agenda are on the board thats all busywork. It takes away from teaching, but I do it. You never know when theyre going to come in. All year long youre holding your breath: Are they coming in today? You dont feel trusted.Bruce Linser, a six-year musical theater teacher and the outgoing dean at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, will begin teaching college theater courses at Florida Atlantic University and Broward State College this fall.Dreyfoos is an awesome public high school. If you have to teach high school, thats the place. The students are terrific, and the schools reputation is incredible. Students go onto amazing college and university programs and do great. And the fact that there is a public school with an arts-centered program right here in Palm Beach County is a great resource. Since I taught musical theater and was dean of the theater department, I know teaching from the classroom and the administrative side. We had a lot of freedom in terms of how we were allowed to teach the subject matter. But the testing and teacher evaluations, this is new and its created a lot of headaches for a lot of people. One of the things we spend so much time doing is crunching all this data. Data has nothing to do with students or humanity, and teaching is all about humanity. This data takes us away from all of that. Teaching to me is a creative art, because youre dealing with students from different backgrounds, different levels of expertise, different learning modalities you just have to be creative, to think on your feet, to figure out what works for those sitting in front of you. One of the big problems with public education is all of this standardization. You cant standardize education. Youll never be able to standardize it. We have to teach to students sitting in front of us, and standardization prevents that. Its hobbling really creative teachers by boxing them in, in ways I dont think is healthy for students, or for teachers. Another problem is the pay. Its a huge thing for teachers. We dont go into it for the money, but they ask for so much. There is so much time expected, and the more they lay on us the harder it is. Were paid lower than in many or most other states, so its a challenge that gives you restrictions and expectations but doesnt ante up on the other side. Thats a big important part of whats going on and why people leave. Were also struggling with charter schools. So much money goes to charters, and we are losing great resources because of that choice. I dont want to limit peoples choices, but we should look at the big picture. This business of trying to privatize education so somebody else is making money on it, that hurts us. Theres one more issue and challenge: Society has changed a lot. Theres this thing called entitlement that is really in the way. Parents are too involved, districts are afraid of litigation, sometimes behind the scenes parents and students are in control, and teachers and administrators feel theyre backed into corners.Sandy Stenoff is cofounder of The Opt Out Florida Network, a grassroots organization based in Orlando that advocates a variety of assessments instead of a single, statemandated test.The pressure on teachers from their districts and administrators to ensure their students do well on the state tests is now greater than the states duty to provide students with the high-quality education they need and deserve. Doing well on a test is not the same as being well-educated. Districts may say they want to reduce testing and the importance of testing, but district policies usually thwart the abilities of teachers to teach as they know best. School grades based on testing is one of the biggest problems. It drives the testing machine. School grades determine school funding, teacher bonuses, principal compensation. And dollars determine everything. This is why, although the U.S. Department of Education requires something like 17 tests throughout K-12, states must show mettle. They demand progress monitoring so that they can identify the kids who are struggling (read: Kids who wont pass the test that determines everything). So the state requires unnecessary and crazy progress monitoring. All of the incessant testing is to ensure success on the Florida Standards Assessment. Third-graders who cant pass are retained to falsely prop up fourth-grade scores, which are used to attract business to the state. Kids who fail the FSA in third grade will do better on the FSA the second year around, but they themselves will be very little better off as students. Then they go on to test great in fourth grade, and Jeb Bush, who created this system, then gets to toot his horn over fourthgrade reading scores. School grades are used to market real estate. If parents truly understood how school grades distort their kids education, elementary especially, they would stop buying those bumper stickers that say, My kid goes to an A school.Mike Riley, a 37-year teacher and administrator, is now spokesman for the Charlotte County School District. There are several problems teachers face now that may be new. One is respect they dont feel they have it. Another is financial, salaries. You go to a four-year college, you get out, and you have a relatively low-paying job. A lot of teachers have to have part-time jobs, too, which is hard on families. Testing is a major issue right now. Theres a pre-test in August, tests during the year and a test at the end of the year so you can move forward. But if you take a test in April and dont get the results until the next fall, what does that do? And every test costs money. The tests shut the computers down. There are a lot of hours involved in preparing those tests. Its the same everywhere. Another thing is the pay for performance: A teachers evaluation is based on how well their students do. Every child cant learn as much as they need to in a short amount of time. A teacher can be doing a marvelous job, and if the child chooses not to take it in, or is mentally not capable, its like a punishment to the teacher. Would you want a 7-year-old or an 11-year-old or a 14-year-old responsible for how much you got paid? Is the test bad? Im not even going there. But the amount of time taken by these tests is hurting students. And teachers. And the districts. One of reasons they teach for the test is theyre paid for performance, and also the district funding is based on that test performance. This year on school grades, only three districts out of 67 in the state of Florida received an A. St. Johns, Sarasota and someone else. So many kids come to school with problems from home. And it spills into classrooms when it was a neighborhood or a home problem. Meanwhile, our teachers have gone five or six years without a raise.Dr. Jeff McCullers is director of program grants and development, and liaison to public charter schools in the Lee County School District.Would more money help? Yes, yes, and yes. Of course it would help. Money helps a lot of things, especially for young people who are paying off massive college loans and trying to find a place to live in our high-priced market. But does that solve anything? I suppose a more nuanced way of thinking about the question is how much money does it take to make a difference, and what is the opportunity cost of that money? In other words, if we increase teacher salary by $5,000 a year, that might well keep some teachers solvent enough to pay local rent and so they might stay longer. The cost of that increase in a district our size would be well over $25 million every single year. Is that enough of a raise to really make a difference? Where would all that money come from? How long would it continue to be available? What else could we do with that money? We resolve this somewhat by offering increased pay to successful teachers who are willing to relocate to low-performing schools. The idea is that instead of spending scarce money everywhere, we spend it in a targeted way to get the most benefit from it. Weve only been doing this for a little while, so were still trying to figure out all the effects that might ensue.

But the main reason most tourists visit this headquarters is to drive the product. Porsches test track is just like going over to the rich kids house and playing with all of his best toys. Everything is available to rent from the Macan crossover to the street-legal track car known as the 911 GT3 RS of course, the faster the wheels, the more it costs. Most sessions run between $300 and $800 for a 1-hour program. Participants take cars out on a high-speed gauntlet, slick skid pad and a mini road course. Its a real life version of the hot wheels track, but instead of that problematic loop, Porsches signature piece is its kick plate. Right before participants enter an inch of water, they drive over a shifting table that allows their instructors to randomly shudder one particular part of the suspension. This results in some spectacular spinouts over the center of the track where all visitors can see. While it may sound like Porsche only built the handling circuit for some automotive tourists to have fun, Mr. Shaffer A14 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Now is a great time to buy a new home!With LMCUs guaranteed low mortgage rates,** we promise theres not a better deal out there.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS BEHIND THE WHEELPorsches home is closer than you thinkHeres a fun fact for Floridian car fans the nearest automotive company headquarters isnt in Detroit. Its as close as Atlanta. Porsche just moved into their new North American headquarters about a year ago, and now theyre settled in and ready for a few visitors. Making it up to Atlanta is a bit of a further trek than Disney or an FSU football game, but for the right people, it is worth the trip. Thats because Porsches $100 million investment in Georgia includes a test track for Porsche owners and wannabes to thrash their favorite German speed machines. While this is a tourist destination, it is also a genuine headquarters. Porsche does everything here but manufacture the cars from tracking German shipments, to training sales staff, to financing, to engineering the next generation of cars. Theres plenty of 9 to 5 business going on, but thats not whats on display. The building is thoughtfully laid out so that the cubicles and water coolers are behind closed doors, and visitors will never realize that there are far more employees than tourists in the building. Instead, the whole facility showcases Porsches love for cars. The main lobby looks out on the test track and a courtyard where customers can take delivery of new vehicles. Down on this patio level is also the entrance to the on-site workshop. It acts as an arm of Porsches service and restoration facilities in Germany. Send it here, and you are bringing it back to the factory, explains Ray Shaffer, whos in charge of the classic collection and delivery center in Atlanta. But they keep their schedule open for more than just high-dollar restorations. You could even just get an oil change if you want to.Next to the workshop is a two-level heritage gallery thats small but important. Porsche already has a large museum in Stuttg art, but that doesnt always tell the companys whole story. So among Atlantas rotating display of significant cars are also artifacts and timelines specific to America. For example, Max Hoffman was more than just their first east coast importer. He was also a leading influence behind benchmarks like the 356 Speedster and the Porsche family crest. Hoffmans contributions and other significant American milestones that helped create this global sports car icon find a proper home displayed in Atlanta. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com
tells tales of the secretive engineering department getting to play out there under the cover of night. Porsche doesnt have to worry about too many unauthorized prying eyes during this time. No one gets on the property without prior approval. It might feel like an elitist measure, but Porsche didnt make the decision. The property sits on the edge of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport one of the busiest airports in the world. So Homeland Security requires that all visitors are preregistered.That doesnt mean you have to break the bank to rent a Boxster for an hour. Theres also a fine dining restaurant open for lunch and dinner. Making a reservation there also gains access to the property. So you might overpay for some soup, but the view is worth every penny.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYfallen behind, but spirit-building support to help students succeed at life. Amber G., an 18-year-old at PACE, is one such student who has benefited from the academic resources and character building exercises the center provides young girls. At her mothers urging, Amber left Immokalee High School last spring when she struggled to maintain her grades and relationships. My grades were getting low and I needed help. Most of the teachers didnt help me, she said. Its different than Immokalee High School because the teachers actually help me with my work. The classes are much easier and smaller than at the high school. As one of 19 PACE locations throughout the state, the center in Immokalee currently serves 106 girls aged 12-17. Eighty percent of the students were failing at least one class in public school before arriving at the center and of the current population, 96 percent improved academically at the center. The alternative school serves middle and high school girls and provides high school diplomas at the end of the program. What makes us different is that, in addition to providing the state-mandated curriculum, we offer in-house counseling to the girls on a regular basis so they dont have to go out and find it, said Executive Director Marianne Kearns. They havent been successful in public school because theyve been through so much trauma that they cant focus. We are able to address all their issues so they can concentrate on their course work. Referrals come from public schools, the Department of Juvenile Justice or even the girls themselves and if they have three or more factors that put the girl at risk of incarceration or dropping out of school, they are accepted into the program. An alternative school like PACE has more resources than a public school to tailor individual programs for students who have to overcome challenges at home. Those challenges can often seem insurmountable or at the very least, an obstacle to getting through a day in a classroom. We are not punitive. If a girl has an issue at home, when she comes to PACE, we address it right away, said Ms. Kearns. We dont expect them to come in and sit down at a desk and start working if theyre dealing with a distraction. As a result of those risk factors, which can be anything from poverty to abuse, most students are not performing at grade level. Thanks to the schools yearround program, students are usually able to graduate at or near their assigned graduation date. They are not up to grade level, which is usually a consequence of other trauma, said Ms. Kearns. Theyre usually two years behind and we find that the benefit of going year-round is that the summer helps them get caught up again. But what does the school do about those personal problems? Solving those issues and helping the girls gain a sense of self-worth is what PACE is all about. Ms. Kearns said the intake process is a crucial time for teachers, counselors and the girls themselves and creates the foundation for the students success over time. Its a very special process because we want her to buy in pretty quickly, Ms. Kearns said. A lot of these girls are shy and guarded because they dont want to air those family problems. Were teaching them to find their voice and honor their female spirit. Following admission to the program, the student immediately undergoes an assessment and an intake committee convenes to discuss the risk factors she presents. On her first day of school, the student will meet with her assigned counselor to start a process of self-exploration. She will also meet her buddy group, the girls who will support her and each other through their PACE program. A variety of activities that enhance their development are incorporated into their day, like volunteering at Guadalupe Center or neighboring retirement homes, but the signature enrichment program, called Spirited Girls, teaches students all manner of skills so they emerge from PACE armed with factual knowledge about everything from nutrition, body image, pregnancy prevention, sexual health, career exploration, restorative justice and more. We debunk all the perceptions that girls are hearing through media and we have real conversations about whats really true. We really make sure their perceptions about body image and love are accurate so theyre not going by what they hear and see, Ms. Kearns said. A lot of girls grew up really fast before coming to us, so were able to enrich them so theyre just more successful and feel good about themselves. After just three months at PACE, Amber has a whole new perspective on herself and her capabilities. Surrounded by supportive peers and a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes self-worth, her grades have bounced back up and shes currently a B-student. When I was at the high school, I never thought that Im a really good person, she said. My counselor was telling (me) everything about myself and Im seeing that I love to be myself. I dont want to change myself for anybody. Even the social environment bolsters Ambers efforts to make it to Florida State University, where she hopes to study nursing. The students are good friends who understand and support each other, whereas Amber felt socially isolated at her former school. I was always by myself, she said. The girls Im with are different because theyre the ones that care and understand. Its pretty rare that a referral comes from law enforcement anymore, Kearns said, and its a testament to how intervention in the lives of juvenile girls can make a real difference to a community. It costs taxpayers about $42,000 per year to support a child in the juvenile justice system, whereas the $16,000 per year the school spends to educate a girl at PACE prevents her from entering it in the first place. Were adding a lot of protective factors into the mix so they dont end up incarcerated, Ms. Kearns said. There are a lot of people who live in poverty in Immokalee, but that may be their only risk factor and theyre fine. Theyre just like you and me. When you add in four or more (challenges), the risk is substantial. Among PACEs graduates, 96 percent had no criminal involvement within a year of leaving the center and 91 percent were seeking higher education or were employed. Administrators follow the girls up to three years after they leave the program and many of them enroll at iTech, a vocational school located in Immokalee. While a few enter four-year universities upon graduation, administrators encourage the girls to set manageable educational goals so they can have success and continue on their chosen career path in small bites. First, we want them to feel successful accomplishing something, Ms. Kearns said. Sometimes its hard for them to get to college, so thats why we encourage them to go to iTech and set goals that are attainable and work their way up. Amber started her journey toward becoming a nursing student at FSU this summer when she attended the universitys SSTRIDE program, which introduces aspiring health care workers to the medical field. She said she had a great time and the experience reinforced her desire to take incremental steps toward becoming a doctor. PACE is helping her reach the academic standards FSU requires for its program, she said. Ive been looking at the grades (FSU) wants and in high school, I didnt care about anything. I tried but the teachers werent helping, she said, but now she sees the possibility of enrolling at the university now that her grades are up. Currently, about half of PACEs funding comes from the Department of Juvenile Justice and the remainder is a mix of private grants, donations and fundraising proceeds. The centers signature fundraiser, Love that Dress!, is underway with a series of dress collection parties that will culminate in a capstone event where the donated goods are sold from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, at Naples Grande Beach Resort. In addition to purchasing new or gently used dresses, guests will enjoy cocktails, silent auctions and an after party at Burn by Rocky Patel in Mercato. The events sponsor, White House Black Market, donated 300 new dresses that will be added into the mix. All the proceeds will benefit the center. Its been phenomenal, Kearns said. The first year we raised $25,000 and last year (2015), we ended up with about $125,000. Its grown by leaps and bounds. Tickets for the Sept. 1 event are on sale. Guests can purchase a general admission ticket for $30 or a VIP ticket for $150, which entitles them to early access to the sale at 5 p.m. Collier at ImmokaleePACE Center for Girls is located at 160 N. 1st St. and has served more than 1,200 girls since it opened in 1998.

NCH earns national Most Wired designationNo question about it, NCH is one wired health system and we, and our patients, are the better for it. For the fifth consecutive year, NCH has been recognized by the American Hospital Associations Health Forum as among the Most Wired health systems in the nation. NCH joins 414 hospitals in the U.S., including 18 others from Florida, as Most Wired. Thats out of 5,000 hospitals nationally, 1,700 of which applied for the designation. The award is nice, of course, but its secondary to what information technology can do for patients and those who care for patients. Hospitals are breaking out of their traditional four walls and providing care where and when patients need it, said Rick Pollack, president and CEO of the AHA. These Most Wired hospitals exemplify this transformation by harnessing technology, engaging patients and offering services remotely. And, removing policy and other barriers to tele-health will allow even faster adoption of these amazing technologies. Here at NCH, technology has improved the efficiency of care delivery and created a new dynamic in patient interactions. Clinical safety and quality are greatly enhanced with our partner, Cerner, the worlds largest healthcare information technology company. Our medication administration safety, infection avoidance, fall prevention and early sepsis (bloodstream infection) recognition are all greatly improved by computer technology largely created by Cerner. This past year, NCH incorporated telemedicine with our top-ranking stroke program. Within six minutes, we now connect a neurologist, managing a robot, with an ER patient exhibiting neurological symptoms consistent with a stroke. In the past without this technology, the average connection time was measured in hours. We also use technology to remotely monitor, in their own homes, patients with Congestive Heart Failure or too much fluid in the body. Shortly, we will have secure text messaging among physicians and surgeons. And we also use our computer system to upgrade and integrate business and administration management. Having clinical integration of the inpatient and outpatient record with the ability of a patient to access his/her information continues to be a journey. We have employed the imbedded technology and will always work to increase functionality and utilization. Even though NCH ranks among the top healthcare systems in using technology, our desire is to continue to impr ove, making a patients journey across the health care spectrum from a physicians office to a lab or radiology for diagnostic tests to inpatient status to post-hospital care as seamless as possible. While we are clearly more sophisticated and better off than ever before, we are not yet where we want to be with technology. And so the technology journey continues. As we proceed, we need to be mindful not to let technology interfere with the personal relationship between caregiver and patient. Stated another way, technology should neither be a distraction or partition in patient relationships, but rather a powerful enabler to help everyone live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

Women ages 55 and older may switch to mammograms every two years, based on conversations with their physician.Colon and rectal cancer Starting at age 50, both men and women should have one of the following testing schedules: Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years*, or Colonoscopy every 10 years, or Double-contrast barium enema every 5 years*, or CT colonography (Women ages 21 and older should be tested for cervical cancer *If the test is positive, a colonoscopy should be done.Cervical cancer Women ages 21-29 should have a Pap test done every three years. Women ages 30-65 should have a Pap plus an HPV done every five years. Women age 65 and older who have had regular cervical cancer testing in the past 10 years with normal results do not need cervical cancer testinvirtual colonoscopy) every 5 years* Endometrial (uterine) Cancer (h2). At the time of menopause, all women should be told about the risks and symptoms of endometrial cancer. Women should report any unexpected vaginal bleeding or spotting to their doctors. Some women because of their history may need to consider having a yearly endometrial biopsy. Please talk with a health care provider about your history.Lung cancer The American Cancer Society does not recommend tests to check for lung cancer in people who are at average risk. However, screenings are recommended for those who are at high risk of lung cancer due to cigarette smoking. Screening might be right for you if you are all of the following: 55-77 years of age. In good health. Have at least a 30 pack-year smoking history AND are either still smoking or have quit within the last 15 years (A pack-year is the number of cigarette packs smoked each day multiplied by the number of years a person has smoked. Someone who smoked a pack of cigarettes per day for 30 years has a 30 pack-year smoking history, as does someone who smoked 2 packs a day for 15 years.) Screening is done with an annual low-dose CT scan of the chest. If you fit the list above, t alk to a health care provider if you want to start screening.Prostate cancer Starting at age 50, men should talk to a health care provider about the pros and cons of testing so they can decide if testing is the right choice for them. African-Americans who have a father or brother who had prostate cancer before age 65 should talk with a health care provider starting at age 45. If you decide to be tested, get a PSA blood test with or without a rectal exam. How often youre tested will depend on your PSA level.

Scripps Florida scientists discover drugs that increase bone massIn addition to its more obvious ills, type 2 diabetes is a condition closely associated with bone fractures, increasing the risk of fractures twofold. To make matters worse, certain anti-diabetic drugs further increase this risk, particularly in postmenopausal women, severely limiting their treatment options. A new study, co-led by Patrick R. Griffin, a professor on the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute, and B. LeckaCzernik, a professor at the University of Toledo, has shown that a new class of drug candidates developed at TSRI increases bone mass by expanding bone formation (deposition of new bone) and bone turnover (a normal process of replacement of old bone). A proper balance of these two processes is critical to healthy bone maintenance, and this balance is frequently negatively affected in diabetic patients. The result is a new dual-targeting drug candidate or, as Mr. Griffin describes, one drug addressing multiple therapeutic indications that could treat both diabetes and bone disease. The compound has been referenced as SR10171. The study was published recently online ahead of print by the journal EBioMedicine. Diabetes affects more than 29 million people in the U.S., according to a 2012 report from the American Diabetes Association. Between 2010 and 2012, the incidence rate was about 1.7 to 1.9 million per year, and in 2013, estimated direct medical costs of the disease were $176 billion. Over the past decade, Mr. Griffin and his colleague, TSRI Associate Professor Theodore Kamenecka, have focused on the details of molecules that increase sensitivity to insulin (a hormone that regulates blood sugar). Using newly discovered information, the researchers made significant advances in developing a family of drug candidates that target a receptor known as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors gamma (a key regulator of stem cells controlling bone formation and bone resorption and a master regulator of fat. Anti-diabetic drugs known as glitazones target the PPAR protein, but that interaction leads to severe bone loss and increased fractures. Stem cells in the bone marrow can differentiate either into bone cells or fat cells, and the glitazones drive them to fat at the expense of bone. But SR10171 is designed to avoid this troubling o utcome. In animal models treated with the compound, fat formation in the bone marrow was successfully blocked independent of their metabolic state (healthy or diabetic). Using structural biology technigues and rational design synthetic chemistry, SR10171 was constructed to engage the PPAR protein in a unique way possessing an optimal balance with the receptors other family member, PPARa, to treat diabetes and, at the same time, improve bone health, Mr. Griffin said. This targeted polypharmacological approach demonstrates that the target isnt the problem if you target it correctly. The compound increases bone mass by protecting and increasing the activity of bone cells in various stages of normal bone maintenance, utilizing mechanisms that overlap those that regulate wholebody energy metabolism. SR10171 improves bone mass regardless of body mass index, normal to obese, Mr. Griffin added. So you could use such a drug to treat osteoporosis whether patients are diabetic or not.

Jumping. Racing. Diving. With the Rio Olympics in full swing, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the world of competitive dog sports, which often parallel those of their human counterparts and require just as much athletic ability, stamina, speed and agility. Top dog contestants come in all shapes and sizes, but the two things they have in common with each other and with human athletes are heart and hustle.Take Wren. The 10-inch papillon excels at the highest levels of her sport, agility. With tight turns and at top speed she races around a course that includes bar jumps, tire jumps, weave poles, a teetertotter the element that can really slow a tiny dog because it tips downward more slowly an A-fr ame and tunnels. In the six height classes, from 8-inch (Wrens category) to 26-inch, the dog with the fastest time and fewest faults wins. Wren, owned and handled by Betsey Lynch of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has had big wins in her class in the past year, including American Kennel Clubs National Agility Championship, USDAA Cynosport Performance Grand Prix and Westminster Masters Agility Championship.Any dog can compete in agility, but the dogs with speed and drive tend to be the ones at the top of the charts. Current contenders include Sierra, a Shetland sheepdog, in the 12-inch class; Hottie, a border collie, in the 16-inch class; Mr. T, a golden retriever, in the 20-inch class; Skillz, a border collie, in the 24-inch class; and Pace, a border collie, in the 26-inch class. The best agility dogs from more than 35 countries will gather in Zaragoza, Spain, Sept. 22-25 to compete in the 21st Agility World Championship, where theyll run on state-of-the-art artificial turf specially ordered for the event. Closer to home, check out the North American Dog Agility Council Championships, held Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in South Jordan, Utah. Flyball, the fastest-growing canine team sport, is a relay race popular around the world. Teams of four to six dogs race over four hurdles, pounce on a spring-loaded box to release a tennis ball and race back over the hurdles with it before the next dog begins. Each dog has a handler, and line coaches help to improve the teams performance. Any dog whos fast and loves tennis balls can play, but small dogs have a special role. They can be a teams secret weapon because jump height, ranging from 7 to 14 inches, is determined by the height of the teams smallest dog. A team with a height dog, as the shorties are known, benefits because the larger dogs get to jump lower hurdles. Record-holders in the sport include a mixed breed named Everest, with a run of 3.417 seconds in United Flyball League Internationals Singles race, in which dogs run against the clock, and a team called Border Patrol, made up of mixed breeds Troy, Banshee, Epic and Syber. They hold the current North American Flyball Association Regular record of 14.433 seconds, set June 5, 2016, in Rockton, Ontario, Canada. The NAFA CanAm Classic is Oct. 7-9 in Indianapolis. The UFLI Tournament of Champions takes place Oct. 21-23 in Gray Summit, Missouri, near St. Louis. Perhaps the nearest canine equivalent to the Olympics is the Incredible Dog Challenge, hosted by Purina Pro Plan. Events include dock-diving, catching flying discs, surfing and more. In the West Coast Challenge, an American Eskimo Dog named Ziggy won the Small Dog Surf Event, and a Belgian malinois named Saphira set a new world record with a 25-foot-6-inch jump in the Fetch It event. The IDC National Finals take place Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at Purina Farms in St. Louis. Canine athletes score big in dog sports.

Offer expires 8/31/16. Call and schedule today! THE DIVA DIARIESI think I need a vacation or maybe just purple hairIve seriously decided that I want purple hair and Im not talking about that violet rinse your grandma had. Im talking a bright, vibrant grape color imagine the color of Princes crushed velvet suit on the album cover of Purple Rain only on my head. But, Im not completely committed because other times, I desperately want teal tresses, a sort of a blue/green hue, like a mermaids tale. And other times, I want white a stark white mane not platinum blond, not the trendy new silver/gray but snow white. Other times, I want to cut all my hair off into the sort of pixie style that only Ellen DeGeneres and Jamie Lee Curtis can seem to pull off. Then there are the times when I want to spend a ton of money to get hair extensions all the way down to my waist. And even though I remember well the pungent smell of perm solution from my first regrettable attempt at spiral curls when I was 13, there are still times when I actually want to get a perm. Occasionally, Ill see a young girl with dreadlocks and I think, I could rock that look. Usually though, when these whims hit me, I end up cutting my bangs with sewing scissors after a glass, or three, of wine under a full moon. Fortunately, my crown of glory has been in the good hands of my friend Nick Ortino and fabulous stylist Courtney Tincher for more than 10 years now. And I remember Nick once telling me, when I begged him to cut all my hair and dye it jet black (kind of like Anne Hathaways when she played the starved, dying prostitute in Les Miserables), Its not about the hair whats wrong? Wisely, he was pointing out that when life gets to be too much, doing something sudden and drastic to your hair isnt going to solve the problem. A vacation might, getting more exercise probably will, calling your mom or your best friend might, too. But, dyeing your hair fuchsia isnt going to do it. Believe me, back in the day, I had fuschia hair, and blue hair, and orange hair, and even green hair (that was actually an accident), and I even once shaved stripes into the left side of my head. The early s were, apparently, an emotional rollercoaster. And the time that it took to grow out those questionable decisions was pretty grueling. On the other hand, when someone hems and haws about getting a quarter of an inch cut or moans and groans as she tries to decide whether subtle highlights might be too distracting, Im the first to tell her to go for it its only hair, after all it grows back. Im glad for the early s though, even the perms that turned my hair into a frizzy fro, the flattop that made me look like I was in a boy band, and the time I experimented with bleach and chemically burned off a good two inches of my hair. I can look back in fondness (so glad there werent cellphone cameras back then) of how I tried to work through stress while making bold choices. Years later, I know that Nicks right blond suits me. And, yes, I definitely need a vacation. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

This data demonstrates the ways home sharing is creating economic opportunity for thousands of Floridians, while also bringing more people to the Sunshine State to support our largest industry: tourism, said Michael ONeil, Airbnbs regional head of public policy. According to the data, more than 16,000 Floridians shared their homes, or a room in his or her home, via the Airbnb platform during 2015. The typical host earned $7,200 sharing their space for 41 nights during 2015. In total, more than 750,000 people visited Florida via Airbnb last year, representing 149 percent growth year-over-year. The tourism industry is an important economic driver in Florida and a key source of revenue for state and local governments. Domestic and international travelers help pay for the Florida tax burden and help keep taxes low for Florida residents while also supporting efforts to market everything Florida has to offer to tourists across the globe. We are committed to working with municipalities across the state to make it easier for our host community to pay their fair share of taxes, Mr. ONeil said. We have a productive relationship with the state and several counties, and are having conversations with officials in many other counties to streamline the tax collection process and ensure our hosts can continue contributing to their local community. Currently, Airbnb is collecting and remitting the Florida transient rental tax and sales tax, including countylevel tourist taxes in 27 counties. Collectively, these agreements are expected to generate millions in additional tax revenue annually. Airbnb is collecting in these counties: Bradford, Brevard, Citrus, Columbia, Desoto, Dixie, Flagler, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Glades, Hamilton, Hendry, Hernando, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lee, Levy, Madison, Okeechobee, Orange, Pasco, Pinellas, Sumter, Wakulla and Washington. Additionally, Airbnb collects the statewide hotel and tourist tax.

MONEY & INVESTINGAfter surprising GDP report, its important to keep a mix of assetsLast Fridays second quarter Gross Domestic Product report mostly flew under the radar for the majority of people not in the finance industry. What was so interesting about this release for me, however, was that is contradicts so many widely held beliefs about the economy and markets that the general public shares. Here are five popular assumptions and how the GDP report utterly shreds those suppositions. Assumption: The average American is unemployed or underemployed, has no money and is completely despondent. Fact: Listening to either political party convention, you would think that we already in a depression. Talk of high unemployment, falling wages and jobs being stolen by foreign workers and illegal immigrants dominated speeches from both Republicans and Democrats. But last weeks GDP release told a different story. Consumer spending grew a very healthy 4.2 percent. And this is on top of a much stronger than expected jobs number last month. Clearly, the American consumer is much better shape than is portrayed in the media or political arena. Assumption: Businesses are strong, as reflected by record high stock prices. Fact: With stock markets at record high, one would think that corporations would be firing on all cylinders and CEOs would be confident in the future. But it seems the opposite is true. Businesses slashed inventories and cut investments in plant and equipment last quarter. That is not something that happens when companies feel confident in the future. CEOs are, instead, directing capital to shareholders in the form of stock buybacks and dividends. Assumption: The stock market is driven by corporate fundamentals and future earnings. Fact: Most analysts believed that the economy grew north of 2 percent in the second quarter. The GDP report, instead, showed that the U.S. economy only grew at 1.2 percent. This news should have sent stocks plummeting. Instead, both the S&P500 and NASDAQ ended positive for the day. The reason was that investors now anticipate the Fed to continue their stimulus of the economy and the markets. It is the Fed, not market fundamentals, that is the force behind the latest market surge. Assumption: Rates are heading higher by the end of the year. Fact: When the Fed raised short term rates at the end of 2015, the majority of analysts anticipated a second rate increase in the second quarter of 2016. Clearly that did not happen but before last week many predicted the second increase would happen by the end of this year. Now, the consensus is that the second rate increase wont happen until the end of 2017. I would agree with this assessment as what would the advantage be for the Fed to increase rates at this point? Already many companies are blaming a strong dollar for their poor profits and a rate increase would only add to this misery. Low rates are positive for commodities, exporters, REITS, and real estate but negative for bank profits. Assumption: Analysts can predict the future of economic growth. Fact: The market was completely caught off guard with this weak GDP number. Almost all economists were looking for a much higher number and even the Federal Reserve banks were off the mark (the closest to the target was the Atlanta Fed with a growth rate of 1.8 percent versus the actual figure of 1.2 percent). This is why it is so important to stay diversified in your investments. If even professional economists and the Fed cannot predict where the economy and the markets are heading, how can we hope to?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Evaluating Mutual Fund PerformanceIf youre looking for good mutual funds to invest in, you might just look to see which ones have performed the best recently. Thats not the best way to find winners, though. Remember that funds that beat the stock market average one year wont necessarily beat it the following year. A fantastic performance may be partly the result of the fund managers talent, but its also partly luck at least over the short term. (And many fund managers invest only for the short term.) Bad funds can have strong years now and then. Even finding a fund with a terrific threeor fiveor 10-year average annual return isnt enough. A great average can be due to one outstanding year. After all, a five-year average is just an average of five annual performances. If one is unusually high, the average will be high. For example, if in each of five years, a fund earns 7 percent, 9 percent, 2 percent, 6 percent and 26 percent, its average annual return will be about 10 percent. That might look respectable, but note that in reality it exceeded 10 percent in only one of five years. The majority of stock mutual funds actually tend to underperform the market average. According to the folks at Standard & Poors, as of the end of 2015, fully 82 percent of all large-cap domestic stock mutual funds underperformed the S&P 500 over the preceding 10 years. Its simply hard to beat the average in large part due to fund fees. So what can you do? Well, consider investing in an inexpensive broad-market index fund, which will outperform most other mutual funds for example, the Vanguard S&P 500 Index Fund (ticker: VFINX). If you still want to seek aboveaverage managed funds, look for ones with no loads, expense ratios (annual fees) below 1 percent, and thoughtful managers who invest their own money in the funds.

LeapFrog TrippedMy dumbest investment was in LeapFrog Enterprises, a company that made educational electronic toys for children. They were kind of like early versions of the tablets we enjoy today, but while they were initially embraced by many, today every 3-year-old can have a fine time with his mothers or dads iPad. No one seems to need LeapFrog devices anymore. B.W., AtlantaThe Fool Responds: Compelling competition was indeed a key reason that LeapFrog faltered, but remember, iPads, costing hundreds of dollars, were still significantly different from LeapFrog offerings.LeapFrog performed well as an investment for a while, but then it did fall on hard times. In mid-2015, it posted quarterly results that featured sales down by more than 30 percent in the U.S. and abroad, and inventory swelling by nearly 40 percent. Management said it would be developing new products to address new markets, but investors were not encouraged and many sold, sending shares down further.LeapFrogs market value sank to around $40 million by early 2016, when the Hong Kong-based company VTech announced its intention to buy LeapFrog for around $72 million. VTech has long been in the electronic learning toy business and wanted to add LeapFrogs assets to its mix to broaden its portfolio. The LeapFrog story is a good reminder that we need to keep a close eye on our holdings to make sure theyre performing well and their prospects are still strong. A Stock to Bank OnAfter the Federal Reserve raised its federal funds target rate for the first time in nearly a decade in December and led many to expect several more hikes in 2016, Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) was counting on rising interest rates to boost its interest-based income and net interest margin. But that hasnt happened, due to weaker jobs growth and GDP data. Still, theres reason to be bullish. For starters, Bank of America has put most of its mortgage-based litigation behind, leaving it with fewer expenses, better visibility and more transparent performance numbers. General cost-cutting is another reason Bank of America looks attractive. It has been able to scale back its overhead costs via some branch closures to take advantage of the push toward mobile banking. Mobile and ATM transactions are substantially cheaper than in-person transactions, giving B of A an incentive to cater to mobile consumers. Bank of America also offers an intriguing value proposition. The company is trading well below its book value, primarily as a result of its subpar return on assets (ROA). However, improved expense efficiencies, coupled with the expectation of interest-rate normalization at some point in the intermediate term, should help push its ROA higher. With a dividend that recently yielded 1.5 percent, Bank of America is worth considering for your portfolio. (The Motley Fool has recommended Bank of America.) I was conceived at a coffee shop by two guys who built me into a retail powerhouse. They envisioned trained staffers who could teach customers about products. Today, based in Atlanta, Im the worlds largest home improvement retailer, with more than 2,275 locations in all 50 states and beyond. My stores average about 104,000 square feet inside, plus about 24,000 square feet for my garden departments and stock about 35,000 products. I employ more than 385,000 people and rake in close to $90 billion annually. Im still focused on helping customers, with do-it-yourself clinics and workshops. Who am I? (Answer: The Home Depot) Beware of Falling PricesQWhats deflation? J.R., Norfolk, VirginiaADeflation is the opposite of inflation, occurring when prices fall over time. It typically happens during a recession and can contribute to rising unemployment and decreased production. While lower prices might sound like a good thing, remember that they reflect an ailing economy, where supply is greater than demand, as many people and businesses are financially pinched and are delaying purchases. Fortunately, though, there are measures that can be taken to combat the threat of deflation. The Fed, for example, can lower interest rates or increase the money supply to spur inflation a bit. If youre worried about deflation, you might prepare yourself for a possible pullback in stocks, perhaps locking in some yields with government bonds. Deflation is relatively rare, though, and a little inflation can be good for us. ***QWhen preparing my tax return, will I be able to deduct a big loss from a stock sale? K.W., Midland, MichiganAYes. Losses sting, but their silver lining is that they can help shrink your tax bill. Youll first offset any capital gains from stock sales with your loss. If any loss remains, it can be deducted from your income up to $3,000 per year. Sums above $3,000 can be carried over to the following year. If youre in the 25 percent bracket and you deduct $3,000 from your income, youre excluding that amount from taxation. So you save 25 percent of $3,000, or $750, and dont have to pay that in taxes. Its worth spending some time learning more about tax rules and strategies, as they can save you money. Do so at irs.gov or fool.com/ taxes. Want more information about stocks?

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 75 75 41 NNaples Fort Myers Cape Coral North Fort Myers Bonita Springs Estero Sanibel Port Charlotte Punta Gorda 1. Beno's Brews & Que 2. El Guacamole 3. Hancock Bridge Plaza 4. The Ship (Demolished) 5. Naples Bay Resort Gulf of Mexico Charlotte Harbor 2 3 4 5 1 a geographic shift to newer and shinier commercial strip malls that follows population growth, and flooded parking lots contribute to the perpetual motion of a buildings occupant. Its not a case of seeing businesses come and go, says Barbara Selph, the longtime manager of Quilt Lovers Hangout in the Hancock Bridge Square plaza in North Fort Myers. Since Ive been here I havent seen any businesses come. Ive seen them go. The plaza, on North Cleveland Avenue near Hancock Bridge Parkway behind Perkins, has good visibility and some 38,000 daily passing motorists. But its parking lot becomes a lake after it rains and is used as a shortcut by impatient drivers. People fly through here and dont pay attention to stop signs, Ms. Selph says. When Quilt Lovers Hangout opened 11 years ago, the plaza was also home to Office Depot, a big-box tenant that has since left the plaza. There was also a bulk food store, restaurants, a beauty school, a State Farm office and Green Thumb, a hydroponic supplier that relocated to its own building, says Ms. Selph. Our business hasnt been affected because were a destination spot and people know were here, she says. Men like to walk around and visit the other stores while their wives shop with us but now theres nowhere to go. Current tenants include a sewing shop, laundromat, salon and a Subway. Wal-Mart also operates a temporary warehouse from the plaza. According to LoopNet, an online market for commercial real estate and leasing, there are 14 vacancies at Hancock Bridge Square and also potential plans for redevelopment there, a concept Ms. Selph and other occupants have been hearing about the past two years. They say they need an anchor store, she says. Its a crazy location. Were on 41 and you have to pass us to go over the bridge. Perkins is always packed and people come into our shop from Perkins. I think if people see a new business coming in to the center, theyd go there. Anything would be excellent. Greg Beno, a former chef on Boca Grande, recently opened a restaurant at 320 Tamiami Trail in northern Port Charlotte thats been three different taco places in the last five years, the home of Knuckle Sandwich and reputedly a mini golf course some 20 years ago. The location clearly has visibility as thats how Mr. Beno discovered its availability Hes also not concerned about the failures of previous businesses because he introduced a concept lacking in the area. I drove by one day, saw the rent sign and contacted the owner, he says. It all happened pretty quickly. Barbecue is what I love to do and there werent any other restaurants offering it. Benos opened May 10. One of the most notable building fails in Southwest Florida was The Ship, a 20-year-old replica of a Spanish galleon in Bonita Springs that went through various incarnations as a restaurant, nightclub and bingo hall. The landmark was razed last November for the 160-home Diamond Oaks Village, a community for residents 54 and older. Even major franchises have shuttered locations along a Tamiami Trail dead zone from the former Albertsonsanchored Bonita Bay Plaza a few miles north. Friendlys Ice Cream lasted a few years before closing; the Big Als franchise shut down its 12-year-old Bonita Springs restaurant in 2015; and Applebees eventually became Senor Tequilas. In Naples, the inaugural Olio restaurant at Naples Bay Resort has reinvented itself several times, transitioning to LOrient and Meredays Fine Dining to the present-day 1500 South under the culinary direction of celeb chef Al Smith. The new restaurant blends Southern American food with Italian elements. Chef Charles Mereday made several attempts to establish himself at Bayfront in Naples after enjoying major success with his first eponymous restaurant at Coconut Point in Estero. Described as visionary and genius by his good friend and former public relations spokeswoman Beth Preddy, Chef Mereday spun off Meredays Fine Dining to introduce Alto Jazz Live Kitchen in February 2014 at the struggling Bayfront and a location that had hosted four previous restaurants. Alto offered live jazz every night, unbelievable food and an incredible space, Ms. Preddy says. Charles is a visionary. In any other city Naples just couldnt sustain it. After the jazz concept was met with lackluster enthusiasm, Chef Mereday rebranded the venue as Meredays Brasserie in 2015, patterning it after the Coconut Point location, which was subsequently renamed. The brasserie closed that December and the chef now owns the waterfront Point Harbor Caf & Marina in Point Harbor, N.C. He had very challenging locations in Naples, Ms. Preddy says. Hes busy now and doing great. He misses Naples so much and a lot of people here love him and miss him. Its unfortunate about everything that happened here. Sometimes the curse is lifted. A number of Naples buildings with a revolving door of occupants now have established businesses. For Charlotte Countys El Guacamole, relocating to 3492 Tamiami Trail was a step up. We were in a little shack before and now have more dining space, says Maria Tores, the daughter of the restaurants owner. The Toreses only had to change a portion of the signage. El has been a constant at the location, which was most recently occupied by El Jasico and at least a dozen other restaurants, according to one observer. It has got to be one of the most cursed locations in Charlotte County, he says. A 1.22-acre tract with the also-ran BarB-Bills a play on the name of the very successful Barnacle Bills restaurant on the same spot closed soon after it opened on Placida Road near Rotonda West. The problem wasnt with the location, says Gary Cline, a Realtor with Maxim Commercial Real Estate in Punta Gorda. The restaurant is part of a five-tract parcel fronting Placida Road and San Casa Drive, where new communities are under development and an office building with two retail outposts are about to open. The value is in the land, says Mr. Cline. I looked into it and there could be a mixed-use development with condos over retail. It could be three stories which gives a view of Stump Pass. Mr. Cline says hes had interest from restaurateurs and developers. It has a great location. HOLDINGFrom page 1ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYHancock Bridge Square, once bustling with business, has only a few companies left occupying it. Kathy Bolen, employee, and Barbara Selph, manager, at Quilt Lovers Hangout is one of only a few operating businesses at Hancock Bridge Square, which from the partking lots, looks nearly desolate as many shops have shipped out.

Increases in the Northeast and Midwest were offset by declines in the South and West. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, inched 0.2 percent to 111.0 in June from 110.8 in May and is now 1.0 percent higher than June 2015 (109.9). With Junes minor improvement, the index is now at its second highest reading over the past 12 months, but is noticeably down from this years peak level in April (115.0). Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says a solid bump in activity in the Northeast pulled up pending sales modestly in June. With only the Northeast region having an adequate supply of homes for sale, the recurring dilemma of strained supply causing a run-up in home prices continues to play out in several markets, leading to the last two months reflecting a slight, early summer cool-down after a very active spring, he said. Unfortunately for prospective buyers trying to take advantage of exceptionally low mortgage rates, housing inventory at the end of last month was down almost 6 percent from a year ago, and home prices are showing little evidence of slowing to a healthier pace that more closely mirrors wage and income growth. Adds Mr. Yun, Until inventory conditions markedly impr ove, far too many prospective buyers are likely to run into situations of either being priced out of the market or outbid on the very few properties available for sale. One noteworthy and positive development occurring in the housing market during the first half of the year, according to Mr. Yun, is that sales to investors have subsided from a high of 18 percent in February to a low of 11 percent in June, which is the smallest share since July 2009. Mr. Yun attributes this retreat to the diminished number of distressed properties coming onto the market at any given time and the ascent in home prices, which have now risen year-overyear for 52 consecutive months. Limited selection of homes at bargain prices is reducing the number of individual investors willing or able to buy, adds Mr. Yun. This will hopefully open the door for first-time buyers, who made some progress last month but are still buying homes at a subpar level even as rents increase at rates not seen since before the downturn. In spite of the slight slowdown in contract signings from Aprils peak high, existing-home sales this year are still expected to be around 5.44 million, a 3.6 percent boost from 2015 and the highest annual pace since 2006 (6.48 million). After accelerating to 6.8 percent a year ago, national median existinghome price growth is forecast to slightly moderate to around 4 percent. Regional breakdownThe PHSI in the Northeast advanced 3.2 percent to 96.0 in June, and is now 1.7 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index increased 0.8 percent to 108.9 in June, and is now 1.6 percent higher than June 2015. Pending home sales in the South decreased modestly (0.6 percent) to an index of 125.9 in June but are still 1.8 percent higher than last June. The index in the West declined 1.3 percent in June to 101.3, and is now 1.8 percent below a year ago.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSGoing fishing: Its far more work than play A Pioneer Son at Sea: Fishing Tales of Old Florida by Gilbert L. Voss, edited by Robert S. Voss. University Press of Florida. 200 pages. Hardcover, $19.95. This unexpected gem, a project that had been abandoned for more than two decades, sheds a bright, multi-colored light on the fishing industry in southeastern Florida during the 1930s and 1940s. The author, professor of biological oceanography at the University of Miami and a mainstay of its marine laboratory, had prepared it for publication shortly before his death in 1989. The time wasnt right, however, and it ended up in a drawer where it sat until quite recently. Fortunately, the authors son decided to breathe new life into the project and quickly found success. We are all the beneficiaries of the publishers wisdom and of Robert S. Voss industry, determination and final preparation of the book. Rob Voss chapter introductions, foreword and afterword create an extremely useful historical and scientific context for his fathers reminiscences, which are in themselves finely crafted narratives of his early adult years years spent working the regions fisheries in the hopes of making a living in that trade. Gil Voss good-natured tales capture a world already long vanished. He presents a Florida that he knew long before its paving over and the population boom and excessive exploitation of natural resources. If you want to learn about the various fisheries, this is the book. If you want the inside story of a fishermans life, this is the place. If you want to understand the passions that drive someone willing to toil for bare subsistence in the chaotic fishing economy, open this book. Fishing is not as simple as casting nets and drawing them in. Its knowing the right net for the fish and the fishery, how to make and repair the nets, and how to use them efficiently. These are not simple matters, as the authoritative and colorful details make clear. The sponge business receives the same kind of vivid discussion. Gil Voss grew up in Lantana. The first 30 years of his life were informed by his direct experience with the Old Florida life that his parents lived. He came to understand and cherish that life and then he watched it change and fade away if not disappear. His memories of working friendships with colorful characters, told through vivid conversations set on boats and in bars, capture the humor necessary to survive a rough, demanding livelihood. He details the international flavor of the fishing communities: Bahamians, Greeks, and even transplanted New Jersey folks (!), all with their special ways of doing business and relating to those around them. Readers will feel themselves sitting in the various kinds of boats used for different kinds of fishing, perhaps waiting out a storm or trying to save a loaded net from a shark attack or unexpected crocodile. When the Great Depression gave way to wartime, Gil Voss joined the United States Coast Guard. A contrasting array of stories is drawn from his experiences helping secure the Florida coastline from enemy attack. The U-boats were out there, doing a lot of damage to commercial shipping especially by attacking tankers whose petroleum was needed for Americas war effort. When WWII and Gil Voss Coast Guard service ended, he took one more stab at making a living as a fisherman. Then, at the age of 30, decided to prepare himself for another life. He entered the University of Miamis new Department of Marine Science and moved through his bachelors and masters degrees before getting a Ph.D. at George Washington University, where he was entrusted with teaching assignments before he was fully credentialed. As a research professor, he became known internationally for his work on cephalopods. He also worked doggedly and successfully for conservation causes. Gil Voss special strength, evidenced in these memoirs, is the blend of scientific knowledge, real world experience as a working fisherman and his obvious love of nature. The tales in A Pioneer Son at Sea are a real treat, always entertaining, educational and humorous, too. Rob Voss glossary helps clarify his fathers sometimes specialized vocabulary, and the chapter notes are particularly well done. You might think that a book of this kind wont interest you. But youd be wrong. The details are fascinating, the lifestyle a series of important lessons. And the storytellers engaging personality makes you hope more of Gil Voss tales can be discovered. 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.

Best Family F Best of the Gulf s instruments: hubcaps, garbage cans, plastic buckets, ladders and yes, kitchen sinks. But the names somewhat deceptive, Mr. Bowman says. The reality is the show is so much more than percussion. Theres a lot of comedy to it, a lot of audience interaction. Once you see the show you say, Oh, OK, I get it. Theres a lot more to it. Its hard to put a onesentence label on what it is. (Though the Las Vegas Journal comes close, calling the group Flat-out badassed.) The bands often compared to Stomp and Blue Man Group because they all contain percussion and humor, though Recycled Percussion begs to differ. (They all began around the same time, though the Blue Man Group was first, starting in 1987. Stomp originated in 1990, but came to New York City in 1994.) Initially, its easy to be put in the same category, Mr. Bowman says. But, We are a band that has a show. There are a lot of shows in Vegas that have a band in the background, but we are the only band that has a headline show. The four-man group consists of drummer and founding member Justin Spencer; his cousin, drummer Ryan Vezina; DJ/dancer Jason Davies and Mr. Bowman on guitar and percussion. The band, which has been around since 1995, came to national prominence in 2009, when it competed on NBCs Americas Got Talent, drumming to songs such as Wipe Out and The Ballroom Blitz. Their manic antics (which included turning the drummers stage upside down as they played) and high energy wowed the audiences; they didnt win that honor went to the Olate Dogs but they came in third. And got a Vegas show the following year anyway. We were one of the few non-singing acts that made it that far in the competition, he says, noting that the top acts are usually singers, magicians or puppets. He wasnt with the group then but joined soon after, six years ago.Bucket beginningsThe group has changed a lot over the 21 years, says Mr. Bowman, noting that Justin Spencer, who started Recycled Percussion, is the only original member still in the band. As they changed members, the nature of the group changed. Originally, it was just three guys playing percussion on plastic buckets. The group was put together for what was thought would be one-time-only, for a high school talent show in New Hampshire where Mr. Spencer was a student. Hed been on a field trip to New York City and had seen Larry Wright drumming on 5-gallon plastic buckets in the subway, says Mr. Bowman. It inspired him to bring that concept back to New Hampshire. (Mr. Wright went on to play in Michael Jackson videos and Coca-Cola commercials.) Mr. Bowman met Mr. Spencer a year after that initial talent show, when Recycled Percussion played at an assembly at his own high school. It was just three guys playing buckets, with no element of production at all, he recalls. But a day after the show, Mr. Spencer happened to walk into the store where Mr. Bowman was working, to buy a laser disk. Mr. Bowman struck up a conversation with him. I said, You were at my school yesterday. I rattled off some of the things they were playing, some of the names of songs, and he said, Youre probably the only person who knew we were playing that. Over the course of time we remained in contact, and now Im in the band.Big timeOver the years, Recycled Percussion has played over 5,000 shows in more than 15 countries. Its played at corporate events, on cruise ships and appeared on TV shows such as Carson Daly, The Today Show, Chinas Got Talent and the Latin Grammy Awards. Its also played various halftime shows for the NBA and the NFL, including one for the Texans vs. the Patriots. That was in front of about 70,000 people, he recalls. A lot of halftime shows, its mind blowing. You almost dont have time to focus on it. You get out there, you do your thing, and its over. Then you ask yourself, Did that just happen? They also went back to their home state of New Hampshire and played at a Home Depot in Manchester, N.H. More than a thousand people attended, he says, and the fire marshals shut the doors so no one else could enter. We played on a stage made out of 2-by-4s, says Mr. Bowman. Were playing basically in our environment, with all our recycled instruments. A lot of times while on the road, he adds, theyll stop at a junkyard and pick up scrap metal. (Which is why they call their music junk rock.) In Vegas they headlined at MGM, Tropicana and the Quad on the Las Vegas Strip, before moving to Planet Hollywood. Their touring shows, by necessity, arent as lavish. Wed need a fleet of 18-wheelers to bring all the production elements (we have in our Vegas show), Mr. Bowman says. For me, the tour show is almost more fun; it gets back to how the band really started. You abandon more of the big Vegas production and focus more on talent and interaction with the audience. Mr. Bowman doesnt use many recycled items in playing the guitar, but he does use a power drill at one point. There are old videos of Eddie Van Halen doing that, in the s, s, he says. Hed put a pick up on the guitar, and that picks up the sound of the drill. Its kinda cool. We incorporate a lot of unorthodox instruments. The drill makes an appearance nightly. Their show, he says, is fun for all ages and family friendly, though its not a kid show. Its so much fun. Its high energy, kind of like a movie. You get engrossed in whats happening, you forget about your own trials and tribulations. Youre gonna have a good time and be a kid again. And youll never look at a junkyard quite the same way ever again. ROCKFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSRecycled Percussion plays at the Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center Saturday, Aug. 6.

Cost: $8. The Skinny: When Marx created the Best of the West series of action figures to compete with HASBROs GI Joe line in 1965 the company wisely played to Americans passion for Westerns on TV and on the big screen. These were the days of Maverick and Gunsmoke. The first figure in the series was Johnny West. In 1966, Marx followed that by creating a modern-day cowgirl, Jane West. They were fully jointed and could stand on their own. Each came with its own outfit of removable vinyl clothing vests, skirts or chaps and hats. Other figures followed over the next decade, and you could order wagons, horses and teepees. As collectibles, pieces of the Best of the West series are fairly affordable I recently saw a complete Jane West set with 21 accessory items for $40 on eBay. They have a great graphic look and serve as sweet reminders of childhood for those of us of a certain age. Scott SimmonsMarx Jane West figureTHE FIND:It was the Best of the West. But I remember it as the best of childhood. Thats not too far from my reality. The late 1960s were a magical time for me. I had two parents, a baby sister and six doting grandparents who savored their roles in my life. My Grandpa Bolender, who lived in Fort Myers, loved to tease me. My stepgrandfather, known as Grandpa Bill, always had a kind word for me, and my Grandpa Simmons, who lived in Belle Glade, idolized me. Any time Grandpa Simmons came to visit or I went to visit him, he would take me for a little light shopping never anything expensive, but always something I would enjoy. Remember W.T. Grant? Both Belle Glade and Fort Myers had Grant stores that had nice toy departments. I vividly remember him taking me to the Belle Glade store on Avenue A and buying me a Jane West to go with my Johnny action figure. I think I also had Johnnys horse Thunderbolt, complete with rubbery vinyl saddle and other accoutrements. Oh, I had a blast with those toys, and Johnny and Jane eventually rode off into the sunset of memories. I dont know what happened to my Best of the West figures, but I do remember that day, and I remember my loving grandfather. I cant put a price on that.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Naples Rug GalleryHand Knotted Antique, Modern and Transitional Rugs (239) 793-8787 NAPLESRUGGALLERY.NET3285 Tamiami Trail East, Naples, FL 34112FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED Owners Danka and Abe Asli up to 60% MON-FRI 10AM-5:30PM | SATURDAY 10AM-4PM KOVEL: ANTIQUESFurniture made of animal antlers, horns, heads higher in collector value BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELAnimal horns have been used to make furniture for centuries. Chairs, chandeliers and storage racks made in the 15th century exist in some museums. But the popularity of antlers and horns for chairs came about in the 19th century. At first they were made for hunting lodges and castles for nobility, but almost all of the furniture is now known only through pictures and reports. In 1851, chairs, chests of drawers and even a sofa made of horns were exhibited at the London World Exhibition. The Tobey Furniture Co. of Chicago displayed the first American horn furniture at the 1876 Exposition. The idea lost favor by 1920. Around 1990, the horn chairs were rediscovered by Western collectors. The most famous horn-furniture maker in the U.S., and also the most expensive today, is Wenzel Friedrich of San Antonio, who started in 1880. All of the furniture is made from cattle horns, available from the slaughterhouses. The horns require little care. Some owners like to oil the parts, but most prefer to just dust and wipe with a damp cloth. Chairs are rarely marked and often misattributed, because the makers often copied each other. A Victorian upholstered oak armchair with four cow horns as the arms and back sold in Asheville, N.C., at a Brunk auction a few years ago for $1,400. Chairs by identified makers sell for much more. The National Texas Longhorn Museum pictures many chairs and describes the unique shapes. Q: I have a bust of Madonna holding baby Jesus, which is marked Goldscheider over a large letter G, with U.S.A. underneath the letter. Below that, it has the copyright symbol and American Goldscheider Corp. Whats it worth? A: Frederick Goldscheider started a porcelain factory in Vienna in 1885. When Germany annexed Austria in 1938, the factory was taken over by the Nazi regime. Fredericks son, Walter, immigrated to the United States in 1940 and founded Goldscheider-U.S.A. in Trenton, N.J. The company became Goldscheider-Everlast Corp. in 1941. From 1947 to 1953, it was Goldcrest Ceramics Corp. The Goldscheider factory in Vienna was returned to the family in 1950. The business in America, now called Goldscheider of Vienna, is a wholesaler of religious statuary, including Madonnas that are imported from Italy. Your bust probably was made in 1940, before the company changed its name. Value depends on the size. Medium-size busts of Madonna sell for about $125. Q: My chrome bowl is marked with the words Krome Kraft, Farber Bros. New York, N.Y. and three symbols in an arch. When was it made? A: You have a piece made by Farber Brothers, who started working in New York about 1915. They made silverplated, nickel-plated, brass, copper or pewter pieces. Chromium-plated wares were first made in the 1920s. They were popular because of the modern designs and the dishes did not need polishing. The mark on your bowl indicates that it was not made with a china or glass insert that was used with a patented holder. The company went out of business in 1965. Q: I have an iron shoe last that is 9 inches long and 3 inches wide at the ball of the foot. It weighs 8 pounds. It has an orange color and some little pieces have crumbled and fallen off. Its been sitting on the floor next to my fireplace for 30 years. How old is it? Does it have any value? A: Shoemakers or cobblers made shoes by forming leather around a wooden or iron last shaped like a foot. Usually a pair of lasts would be used, one for each foot. Shoes began to be mass-produced in the early 1900s and polythylene plastic shoe lasts were made. The orange color and crumbling pieces are caused by rust. It may be beyond repair, but you can try removing the rust. There are commercial products you can use, or you can try soaking it in white vinegar for two hours and then using a stiff wire brush to remove the rust. Then it can be painted with a rust-preventative paint. Q: I bought a figurine of a young barefoot boy sitting and sleeping against a tree, with a yard hoe and his dog by his side. Printed on the bottom is NR-208, Sep. 6, 1919 and (c) 1979 S.E.P. Can you tell me anything about it and what its value is? A: Your figurine is called Lazybones and is a miniature reproduction of a reproduction. It was made by Dave Grossman Designs Inc., a company that sold limited-edition figurines, snow globes, ornaments and other memorabilia based on movie, television and book characters from the 1970s to the 1990s. The company introduced the Norman Rockwell, The Saturday Evening Post Cover Collection for the magazine in 1973. The bigger porcelain Lazybones figurine, NR-08 from 1973, pictured Rockwells cover illustration from Sept. 6, 19 19. Your 2-by3-inch figurine is a miniature version of that one, made in 1979. Hence the markings on your figurine. Collector figurines and plates made in limited numbers were a huge collecting niche in the 1970s and s. It was a new idea that became a fad and most of the pieces are now worth less than half their original issue prices. Many would sell for just a few dollars, if they can be sold at all. Tip: If the shine has worn off a spot on an old Formica tabletop, try using auto-body rubbing compound on the spot. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

It sold for $1,400 a few years ago and would sell for less today.

Hilton Naples CONTRACT BRIDGEMore than just a guessBY STEVE BECKERConsider this deal where South is in four hearts and must make a critical guess to make his contract. Let's say he wins the club lead with the ace, plays the A-K-Q of trumps, discarding two diamonds from dummy, leads a club to the king and ruffs a club. Declarer now plays a spade to dummy's jack. East takes the king and returns a diamond. West wins with the jack and continues with the ace. South ruffs and leads another spade. When West follows low, declarer must guess whether to play the queen or the nine from dummy. If he thinks West has the ten, South should play the nine; if he thinks West has the ace, South should play the queen. Many players may think that the card declarer should play from dummy in this situation is an out-and-out guess. This is not correct, however. Without going into the mathematical details of why the right play is the queen, the fact is that in those cases where declarer's play matters and assuming there are no clues to indicate otherwise the queen play will be successful approximately twice as often as the nine play. These odds presuppose that West, who knows from the earlier plays that declarer started with three spades, is a first-rate defender who would not go up with the ace if he originally held A-x-x, A-x-x-x or A-x-x-x-x of spa des. He would follow low to give declarer a chance to go wrong. He would also follow low each time if his spades were headed by the king instead of the ace. The only pertinent cases are therefore those where East holds the ace and ten, the king and ten or the ace and king of spades. The first two cases together occur twice as often as the last case, and that is why the odds are 2-to-1 in favor of playing the queen on the second round of the suit.

FILM CAPSULESCaf Society (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell) Twenty-something Bobby (Eisenberg) moves to L.A. and falls in love with his uncles (Carell) assistant (Stewart), then returns home to the Bronx to run a nightclub with his brother (Corey Stoll). Writer/director Woody Allen is in fine form as he provides laughs and dramatic twists in this engaging coming of age tale set in an idyllic 1930s. Rated PG-13.Bad Moms (Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell) Fed up with having to be a perfect mom all the time, Amy (Kunis) and her friends (Bell, Kathryn Hahn) decide to rebel against Gwendolyn (Applegate) and the other flawless PTA moms. Its cathartic raunchiness for all the hard-working moms out there, and hilarious to boot. Rated R.Life, Animated (Owen Suskind, Ron Suskind, Gilbert Gottfried) Diagnosed as autistic at the age of three, Owen Suskinds only route to understanding the world is through Disneys animated films. Its heartwarming and sweet, and brutally honest at times, but a bit more regarding how Owen evolved is needed. Winner of best director for U.S. documentaries at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Rated PG.Star Trek: Beyond (Chris Pine, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba) With the Enterprise destroyed and the crew trapped on an unknown planet by the villainous Krall (Elba), Kirk (Pine) and co. must save themselves and find a way home. In 3D some of the visuals are too dark and murky, but overall it has humor and solid action. Rated PG-13.Lights Out (Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello) Rebecca (Palmer) and her little stepbrother Martin (Bateman) are tormented by a demon that can only move in the dark. The scares are legit, performances are fine, and the story is plausible. Its a pretty darn good horror movie. Rated PG-13.Ghostbusters 1/2(Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones) Reboot of the 1984 classic follows four women (Wiig, McCarthy, Jones and Kate McKinnon) who team up to fight ghosts in New York City. It has some laughs, decent action and solid visual effects, but you ultimately dont laugh as much as you should. Rated PG-13.The Infiltrator (Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, Benjamin Bratt) In the 1980s, U.S. Customs Agent Bob Mazur (Cranston) goes undercover as a money launderer for the Medellin drug cartel. Nicely directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and solid performances all around, particularly from Cranston.

YesMatt Damon said he would not come back to the Bourne franchise unless Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy (2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), also returns as the director. Accordingly, both are back for Jason Bourne, but the real question for fans is, is the movie worth the nine-year wait? For the most part, yes. The action is tense and exciting, and the story smartly brings Bourne (Damon) into 2016 while illuminating previously unknown facts about his past (including his real name!). This isnt the best movie the franchise has offered (thats Supremacy), but its a worthy successor that of course opens the door for more to come. If you havent seen the earlier Bourne films, starting with The Bourne Identity (2002), they are a must prior to seeing Jason Bourne. In fact, re-watch them if you dont youll be lost in the early stages here, wondering why the CIA is after Bourne, why he went rogue, etc. Making matters worse is Bournes lack of a clear motive for his actions, which is the fault of co-writers Christopher Rouse and Greengrass. The viewer should never wonder why a protagonist is doing what hes doing, and if the filmmaker chooses to deliberately withhold that information, it better be a darn good payoff (sadly, it isnt). The globe-trotting film hits Greece, Iceland and Virginia in the first 10 minutes: Rogue agent Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles), long affiliated with Bourne, hacks the CIA for classified information on black ops programs, including the one that wiped Bourne of his memory. She intends to meet Bourne in Greece and share the info with him and the rest of the world Edward Snowden style but the CIA, specifically cyber specialist Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) and Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones, scowling as usual), are hot on their trail. Dewey even dispatches an assassin (Vincent Cassel) to kill them before they leave Greece. Meanwhile, Dewey tries to bully a tech entrepreneur (Riz Ahmed) into sharing his users social media data with the government, which brings to mind contemporary issues of privacy and intrusive surveillance. As per usual with this franchise, the action is quick and impactful, edited with rapid cuts to convey a sense of chaos and peril. The fistfights are expectedly raw and gritty, but its the car chases through Greece and Las Vegas that viewers will remember, and rightfully so. The sequence in Vegas is especially abusive to the strip and the poor patrons foolish enough to drive on it (youre not supposed to think of the civilian fatalities this kind of reckless driving most definitely causes), but its also directed with precision and ends in a startlingly creative manner. Its fun to see Matt Damon back in this role, as it remains enjoyable to watch him uncoil the layers of Bournes mysterious past. A few head-scratching moments aside, Jason Bourne delivers on its promises. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jeremy Renner, who played lead character Aaron Cross in the tangential The Bourne Legacy (2012), does not appear in Jason Bourne.

CUISINE NEWS Naples Winter Wine Festival announced that Harlan Estate, a California winery that has become famous as one of the worlds finest wineries, will headline the events 2017 Vintage Cellar at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, at Bleu Provence in downtown Naples. Its an honor to expand my familys involvement with the Naples Winter Wine Festival through the Vintage Cellar, said estate proprietor Bill Harlan. It has been personally fulfilling to become involved with such a prestigious event and a true pleasure to donate auction lots and participate in the Vintner Dinners each year, especially since those contributions support efforts to help underprivileged children. My family and I look forward to continuing the commitment. A panel of experts that includes Mr. Harlan, his son Will, estate director Don Weaver and winemaker Cory Empting will oversee the master class tasting. Internationally renown wine critic Antonio Galloni of Vinous will moderate the tasting, which will include estate vintages going back to 1992. I am thrilled to be moderating this vertical tasting of Harlan Estate featuring a number of rare vintages going back to the early 1990s, said Mr. Galloni. Its truly once in a lifetime, tastings such as this along with a deep commitment to supporting charitable causes in the community, that make the Naples Winter Wine Festival such a singular event. The Vintage Cellar precedes the three-day festival where attendees will enjoy rare wines, celebrity chefs and much more, including a live auction where they can bid on luxury experiences and items not available to the public. Proceeds benefit the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which has received over $146 million from the event since its inception in 2001. Tickets to the tasting are $2,500 and will be available for purchase this fall. Seating is limited to 50 people. Bleu Provence is located at 1234 Eighth St. S.

OR THE DISH The Dish: Latin Flatbread Taco The Price: $12.95 The Place: Fernandez the Bull, 3375 Pine Ridge Road or 1201 Piper Blvd. The Menu: fernandezthebull.com The Details: Our love for tacos is well established, but the depths of our devotion to chimichurri sauce have gone largely undocumented in the dining canon of Florida Weekly. Why? Because it hasnt been quite as readily available in Naples, so we took the opportunity to marry our two great passions into one laudable menu item at Fernandez the Bull: the Latin Flatbread Taco. We were sorely tested when we had to choose between chicken and pork, but we took the poultry only because were afraid our taco selections are becoming a bit predictable. The well-seasoned chicken topped with pico de gallo and chimichurri, all wedged into chewy flatbread made some good eating and reaffirmed our belief that the only bad taco is an uneaten one. So versatile and so good. One more thing: Whats Latin food without rice and beans? The dish is very necessary and all yours for $2.95.
C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINORos is still the rage, especially in the heavy, hot days of summerIts been over a year since I wrote about the renewed popularity of ros wines, but the topic is worth revisting for several reasons. First, weve recently tasted some extremely enjoyable samples that wed love to share. Second, its summer, and while those big teeth-purpling reds are great for the cooler weather, on the hot days our thoughts turn to lighter beverages. And third, the enthusiasm for ross in the market has not diminished a bit. Apparently, the rage goes on. Fine by me. There are a couple of basics to remember when youre searching for the perfect pink wine during the summer months. These wines can be made out of any red grape, and it mostly depends on where theyre from. In Tavel and Lirac in the south of France, theyre generally made from grenache, or maybe Syrah. But Ive sampled some that are made from pinot noir, and even zinfandel. Each one has its own set of flavor and aroma characteristics. Next, keep in mind that there are two ways to make ros wines. You can mix a white and red together, which is the cheap way, but its still done. The classier way is known as the saigne method. You crush red grapes, leave the juice on the skins until it just turns pink, then drain it off. The finer ross are made that way. The longer the juice stays on the skins, the darker it becomes. So ros wines can wind up in your glass in colors that range from light salmon pink to a rich translucent ruby. And by now, you know my mantra: drink a lot of wine. Sample widely and find the producers and styles you enjoy most. There are two factors that make ros wines perfect for summer sipping. They go with just about any type of food, except burgers and barbecue. But for salads, light seafood, fish, creamy cheeses and white meats, theyre an excellent choice. And theyre fruit-forward, light on the palate and not the least bit cloying. They are perfect when the outside temperature feels like 102. And today, since ross are so popular, more wineries are turning them out in a wide range of styles, which means theres definitely a wine for everyones taste. Our latest discoveries: Ct Mas Ros Aurore 2012 From the Languedoc region in the south of France, this wine comes in an oversized one-liter bottle, and is a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah, which is typical of the area. Its a lovely pale salmon color with a nose of strawberry. Slightly sweet, there are subtle strawberry and cherry flavors on the palate. Great with salads or on its own. WW 90. $12. Lawer Estates Rose of Syrah NV This wine is very dark pink in the glass, which indicates that the juice soaked in the skins for quite some time. It also means you can expect richer flavors, including watermelon, cherry and melon. Very nice. WW 92. $22. Attems Pinot Grigio Ramato 2014 OK, so this is not strictly a ros, but pinot grigio grapes actually have slightly pink skins, and when you let the juice sit on them long enough, the wine takes on a nice coppery (ramato in Italian) color. Youll sense minerality, wet stones and red apple, along with apple and cherry blossom flavors. WS 89. $19. Villa Gemma Bianco dAbruzzo 2015 I couldnt resist throwing in one refreshing white wine, given the time of year and the outside temperature. Made mostly of the trebbiano grape, which is tradtional in this region, its almost clear in the glass with a nose of mixed tropical fruit. Youll enjoy refreshing flavors of pear, apple and pineapple, and a nice long finish. This would go great with sushi. WW 90. $13.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. On a wine label, what does it mean when the grapes are listed in a certain order? Maria B., Fort MyersA. By law, when a wine consists of a blend of grapes, they must be listed in the order of their proportion. So a label that says grenache, Syrah and mourvedre will have more grenache than syrah, and a lesser amount of mourvedre. Some blended wines dont tell you what the grapes are at all. The label says simply red wine, so you dont know what the heck youre drinking. If the varietal is listed on the label, the wine must consist of at least 75 percent of that grape, and whatever else is blended in may or may not be disclosed.

CLOSED ON MONDAYS DURING AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER CUISINEHumble, hearty pub fare is par for course at British OpenDespite my longtime avocation as a roving restaurant reviewer, I was not born with a menu clutched in my little hand. My family rarely ate out in our small Wisconsin town, and when we did it was usually a supper club a rural phenomenon that is difficult to explain to nonMidwesterners. The meal of choice was the family-friendly Friday night fish fry: all-you-can-eat fried perch with plankstyle fried potatoes or potato pancakes and shredded cabbage drowning in mayo. I look forward to revisiting that tradition (aside from the sodden cole slaw) on vacation this month, but in the meantime I opted for fish and chips at the British Open Pub in Bonita Springs. No bones about it, its a whole other kettle of fish. Its Icelandic cod, and its not an all-you-can-eat proposition (good news for the diet). You get peas instead of cole slaw, but the chips are pretty much the same. The British Open has been serving fish and chips along with other traditional English and American tavern fare for more than 15 years in the Shoppes at Pelican Landing. Its a rambling warren of forest-green dining rooms with red booths plus a covered patio with its own bar. Antique-looking keys and framed pictures of the Queen Mum and Winston Churchill and other famous Brits dot the walls. We settled into one of those red booths eager for a pint or two after a busy workday. In addition to an arsenal of fine drafts from around the United Kingdom, British Open offers double the pleasure combos. I opted for the Blacksmith, a twotone glass of Smithwicks Irish ale topped with Guinness stout ($4.72) while my dining partner sipped a Snakebite ($4.50), half cider and half Stella Artois. We never got around to a second pint due in part to the heaviness of food we ordered starting with sausage rolls ($8.50) and onion rings ($7.95). Perhaps we should have opted for less substantial chicken wings or krab rolls, but those items are not representative of British pub fare. Most of the appetizers are fried or laden with cheese or gravy or both all the better if you overdo the beers, perhaps. The sausage rolls could have been a meal unto themselves, or at least could have fed a couple more mates. It was four full-sized pork sausages baked in golden pastry, not the miniature pigs in blankets long favored at American cocktail parties. The links were salty and juicy and the pastry rich, flaky and attractively folded. They were served with a bottle of HP Sauce, that malty, vinegary, tamarindtart condiment beloved of Brits. We were less enthusiastic about the onion rings. The light beer batter mentioned on the menu puffed up and overwhelmed the onion, so they kind of resemble doughnuts, and soaked up lots of oil along the way. The crispy rings were served with bunker sauce for dipping, which our waitress described as ketchup and horseradish after consulting another server. Thats cocktail sauce, but this was more like mayo-based remoulade. Maybe she was new, but she didnt seem too on the ball. She didnt mention specials, which we overheard another server describing, and she didnt suggest more drinks or bother to sell us on dessert. Nevertheless, food was served quickly and arrived at the table hot. For lunch or lighter appetites, the British Open offers eight sandwedges, a wink at the golf theme. They include prime rib, cod and pangasius, chicken breast or fingers, deli meats and a burger. Theres also a handful of flatbreads because apparently every restaurant just has to serve them now. Among the British entrees are pasties (meats wrapped and baked in pastry), bangers and mash (sausage and mashed potatoes) and cottage pie (ground beef and vegetables baked under a mashedpotato crust). The pot roast pasty ($13.95) was like a turnover or empanada, a neatly folded pastry pocket stuffed with succulent, slow-cooked beef chuck roast. We loved the flaky pastry and the rich brown gravy served on the side, along with fried potato planks and a bowl of peas and overcooked carrots. Also available Cornish style with ground beef, or with chicken and broccoli, the pasty is humble comfort food in the best English tradition. Ditto the fish and chips ($13.95), the pride and joy of the British Open, as the menu says. That flaky, moist Icelandic cod was encased in crunchy beer batter that sealed in its natural moisture. Yes, it was fried but it wasnt as greasy as the onion rings; to avoid the risk, you can order it baked. A lot of British pubs serve fish and chips with mushy peas, which are mashed, often with mint, and are delicious. I wish I could say that was true at British Open, where the (non-mushy) peas tasted and looked like the pallid canned variety. They could really do better with their vegetables here. The chips were good, though: crisp exterior, fluffy interior, substantially sized. We were so stuffed with potatoes and pastry and meat that we couldnt do more than share a dessert. The strawberryrhubarb pie ($6.95) was worth the indulgence. The balance of sweet and tart was perfect, and a crumb topping gave it an unexpected added texture. English pub cuisine may not push any culinary envelopes. But when it comes to hearty and humble fare, the British Open is doing just enough to stay on par.

Kalea 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 early August, the construction on our first tower has reached the 21st 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 floorto-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) 7930110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

The spaces feel narrow and confined. Theres too much mirror. The floral wallpaper is old-fashioned, and the cabinetry is clunky. And here is the confident response from Jinx McDonald Interior Designs to a client on the bay side of Gulf Shore Boulevard with one such dated mess: Weve got this! This couple has had an adventurous life traveling throughout the globe and wanted to bring a bit of that French/ Asian Colonial look to their new Naples condo. It would require a lot more that a new rug and fresh paint. The team at Jinx McDonald Interior Designs needed to move walls, rip out floors, add and update trim work, reconfigure closets and add cabinetry, built-in shelving and a new kitchen island. This was a true transformation from old to new. The tired trend of using mirrored walls to create the illusion of more space is officially gone for good. Instead, todays designers and builders are using larger windows, expansive sliding doors, higher ceilings and lighter paint colors for even better results. Starting with all the floors, it was clear that the carpeting throughout and the linoleum kitchen floor were of course, not desirable. A new mix of light and dark, the updated flooring is a combination of a wool blend sisal used wall-towall in the main living areas, a beautiful dark, wire-brushed hardwood in the kitchen and refreshed tile in the bathrooms. This client knew what they wanted, explains Minka McDonald, designer and daughter of founder Jinx McDonald. They spent years abroad in Hong Kong, and wanted to bring a bit of that old world Colonial style to Naples. The kitchen was perhaps the most dramatic result of the teams efforts. The before is the traditional galley design with a narrow footprint and very little prep/work space. By removing the entire wall on which the range was originally placed, Ms. McDonald was able to create the open floor plan that most homeowners want today. The new island provides tremendous storage as well as a new workspace that allows the hosts to stay connected with their guests. All new custom cabinetry and countertops in bright white, and transitional pendant light fixtures that tie in to the main fixture in the dining room, add the perfect touches to the f inal great room mixed-use space. Ms. McDonald brought a bold color palette of java, navy, white and red throughout. A focal point is the rich background created by the metallicbacked woven Phillip Jeffries wallpaper used in the living room and breakfast room. Fans and hardware all got an update and were selected to keep in line with the Colonial Asian style. Overall the space feels bigger, brighter and much more open, Ms. McDonald says. And it has the elegant, old world styling the couple so desired. Jinx McDonald Interior Designs 1959 Trade Center W ay 598-4800, ext. 3; jinxmcdonald.comCondo reduxA worldly couple transforms a dated home into a French/Asian Colonial dream reminding them of years in Hong Kong Above: Red Chippendale chairs, an Asian-style dining table with a java finish, a large espresso sideboard with rattan detailing and natural woven shades in a rich java finish create a Colonial aesthetic. Right: Removing the wall between the kitchen and living room transformed the old galley kitchen and completely opened up the condo. Crisp white cabinetry, Carrara quartz countertops and a continuous backsplash assist in enlarging the space. Above: The master bath was remade with a Carrara marble basketweave floor, Carrara tile shower walls and new cabinetry with a stunning Diamond Crystal Quartzite top and a botanical motif sink.
