Those who gave the ultimate sacrifice that day included 343 firefighters, 63 police officers and 8 EMTs. The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb starts with an opening ceremony at 8 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Y at 5450 YMCA Road. The stair climb begins at 9 a.m. Participants will run (or walk) the equivalent of 110 stories, consisting of 17 laps on the main campus of the YMCA, starting by going up the west staircase (by the spin room), across the rooftop and back down the east staircase. Starting at 10 a.m., food trucks and other vendors will be set up on the Y baseball field. Participants and spectators are encouraged to make a $10 donation, with all proceeds going to the Freedom Memorial Foundation of Naples. Sign up in advance for the inaugural 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at tiny.cc/ ymca911 or in person at the Y. For more information, call Paul Conklin at 597-3148 or email pconklin@greaternaplesymca. org.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYBoots all the way to gloryMan boots. Or woman boots. Like most people in the country, youve probably wished at one time or another that you were born to a pair of boots. That you could climb into the saddle and ride tall and straight to glory. In those boots you could go around whistling, Do not forsake me, oh my darling while the noon train to Hadleyville approached, bearing that blackhatted, boot-wearing, devil incarnate named Frank Miller (High Noon, 1952, with Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly). No problem. Youre in boots. Frank Millers going down with the help of your Colt .44. Even your Quaker wife, a pacifist, should wear boots, because shes going to plug one of Frank Millers leering friends on your boot-wearing, boneheaded behalf. You could have just run away with her like she asked you to, after all. But you didnt. You were too stubborn. And do you know why? Yep. Boots. You cant run away in boots. Or, you could get real, like a Facebook friend of mine, Kathy Young. I was on the subway in New York City, it was winter, Kathy wrote me. All the other women were wearing Ugg boots, I was sporting a pair of Ariats. I caught them all having boot envy. Boot envy. That is just boot-elicious. You mount that express train on the Upper West Side with all those urbane wannabes those Chromosome XXers and you ride it straight into Hells Kitchen through rattling dark tunnels and light-splashed stations with their grim and bootless humanity staring blankly out at your passing subway car and you dont care, because those other women are wearing cute little roundtoed, suede-covered winter comfy boots. And you? Youre wearing ropers with seven-layer heels thatll stick in the stirrups until Hells Kitchen freezes over if it already hasnt. Isnt there something about boots (cowboy boots in particular) so powerfully iconic that you cant wear them without becoming part of a different culture, a level of heroic endeavor unattainable in mere shoes? The answer is yes, and it happens to be the answer for anything that ails American culture today, from the politics of race or religion, to people who run energy companies that pollute the earth: cowboy boots. People arent wearing them enough. Or at the very least, Beatles boots, made in Liverpool like the ones owned by Mr. Woody Hanson, friend of the Seminoles, father of five, and one coolhand Gator Luke if there ever was one; or Mr. Burdie Baker, the self-styled Black Redneck, last of an endangered species, who wears fake Beatles boots because hes so cool he doesnt even have to wear real ones. Boots will make you better, no matter who you are: My grandfather and uncles, cattlemen all. Florida cowhunter Bone Mizzell or citrus farmer and rancher Billy Murphy. Or Gov. Rick Scott, who owns and wears several pairs of boots made by the same Texas boot maker, Rocky Carroll, who supplies boots to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Sen. Ted Cruz, and former president and Texas Gov. George W. Bush. You might not like their politics or personal views, but just imagine how much worse it would be if they didnt wear cowboy boots. Whatever your trouble may be, just go out and get a pair of boots. Then mount up and head out. Youll be OK, all the way to glory. This first ran in November 2014.

He delivers the question as the punchline to the unexpected rhetorical argument preceding it. It goes something like this: You black (and brown people) are mired in poverty because you vote for Democrats. You live the entirety of your dystopian lives in the rotten, urban cores of Americas cities. Crime is skyrocketing because there arent enough cops or guns. Your chances of getting shot are far better than finding a job. You got an inferior education from lousy public schools. Your kids have the same shot at mediocrity. You own nothing. You will get nothing as long as you abandon the Republican Party. It cant possibly get any worse for you people. You waste your vote on social liberals. I, Trump, am the antidote to your sorry condition. Vote for me. What the hell have you got to lose? The gambit is bold but also perplexing. Trump delivers this speech before overwhelmingly white audiences at rallies hosted in majority white communities. Some venture, despite the focus and substance of his statements, his purpose isnt really to reach out to people of color. If it is true, the logistics of Trump events make sense: Hosting rallies in minority communities inclusive of minority people are entirely unnecessary. Instead, do pop-up rallies inside gated communities where the colored people arent welcome. Pundits have said for some time Trump would pivot from the most blasphemous version of himself and become, in the general election, a more conventional politician. He has a good reason. His poll numbers are tanking among entire swaths of the voting population. He has overplayed his hateful hand. He doesnt have much time to reboot. Unless he shores up his base with moderates, he will not win the White House. Trumps photo ops demonstrating his fondness for fried chicken and taco bowls wont win converts to his cause. As a result, some speculate the real motive for his overt appeals to minorities is to convince white people (moderates and women) he isnt really the bigot they think he is. A little moral encouragement will change their minds. So he need only play the white guy who cares deeply about ending racial injustice. White conservatives on the fence will no longer think he is a racist. The racist was Donald Trumps evil twin. It was he who did all the trash talking, not the doppelganger now humming, We shall overcome. Me? I have a different theory about all this. I think it is a ploy to try and replicate in communities of color the success Trump has had in tapping the anger of working class whites. If it is true, the guy is a Machiavellian genius. He won the loyal support of blue collar white men with the potency of his antiimmigrant, white nationalist message, stoking their economic grievances as he went. He gives them permission to express their racial resentments, their disaffection with establishment politicians (Democrat and Republican) and their hate of wealthy elites. Never mind Trump is a billionaire elitist, too, rising to wealth and power manipulating the very system he condemns on his way to making America great again. Issac Bailey wrote for CNN News Opinion, Many voters of color are as socially conservative as white Republicans. They also share an overriding belief in the power of entrepreneurship. They are frustrated by the state of public schools and would embrace school choice programs that are well designed and take into account the fate of students who would be left behind in the public system. Those groups are among the most religious in the nation while the GOP has long claimed faith as one of its pillars. Were Trump successful, it would be a tactical coup dtat, overthrowing the Democratic stronghold on the minority vote. Trump does get one thing right: There is a deep reservoir of anger in the African-American community. But what he gets wrong is what they are angry about. He is trolling for Clarence Thomas conservatives, the African-Americans who deny the existence of white privilege; and who do not acknowledge systemic discrimination as a modern legacy of slavery. Those who join Trumps tribe deny these realities. They defame the legitimacy of the Black Lives Matter movement and discredit the issues of justice it has raised of systemic racism, intergenerational poverty, police violence and the mass incarceration of blacks. The boil of the angry and dispossessed are the core of Trumps candidacy. He would augment it by stoking the anger of African-Americans who share grievances in common with working class whites. Their hatred is mutual of the rigged economy. But he is playing with fire. Trump calculates his words to incite violence and hatred. He is waging war, not peace. What do we have to lose?

Email her at email@example.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.comObamacare stumbles onFor years, Obamacare supporters have been telling critics of the law to shut up and fall in line. Now, they are urging them to come to its rescue. A key part of President Barack Obamas domestic legacy is sputtering so badly that even the laws boosters are admitting that the federal government needs to do more to prop it up. The Obamacare exchanges were supposed to enhance choices and hold down costs and are doing neither. Abandoned by more and more insurers, the exchanges once billed as robust marketplaces are becoming pitiful shadows of themselves. In most or all of states like Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Tennessee, probably only one insurer will offer insurance through the exchanges next year, reports The Wall Street Journal. One large county in Arizona may have no exchange insurer at all. An analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that 31 percent of counties in the U.S. will have one insurer, and another 31 percent will have just two. It isnt Republicans who are hobbling the law. It isnt the greedy insurance companies, which were overoptimistic about the exchanges at the outset and are now paying the price. It is fundamental economic forces that the laws architects blithely ignored. But economic incentives will not be mocked. Obamacare regulations make health insurance more expensive and keep insurers from conducting their business on a rational basis. This means the exchanges are less attractive to younger and healthier people and therefore less economical for insurers. The mandate was supposed to force healthier people to buy insurance anyway, but it has proven too weak, and subsidies were supposed to cover the higher costs for poorer people, but they are only a BandAid on spiraling costs. The exchanges have created perverse insurance products that feature the worst of all worlds: They have high premiums and high deductibles and copays, and limited networks of doctors. No wonder the exchanges have attracted half as many people as they were expected to. Leave it to the federal government to create a market so unappealing that it is borderline unsustainable. When Aetna announced last month that it was exiting all but four state exchanges, liberals charged that the company was exacting revenge on the Obama administration for blocking its hoped-for merger with Humana. But what accounts for UnitedHealthcare pulling back, and all the other exoduses? All these insurers made a go of it on the exchanges before reality slapped them in the face. Analysts expect the remaining insurers to ask for big premium hikes next year. The answer to this turbulence, the laws supporters say, is yet more subsidies. But it obviously makes no sense for the government to make a product more expensive with one hand and then to subsidize its cost with the other. This was pointed out at the time the law was being debated. But the Obama administration and its allies were too transfixed with making history. And so they did by passing an Affordable Care Act that is one of the great misnomers in the history of major American legislation.

ROOTED IN NAPLESSigns of the season aheadIn case youre searching for an indication that this years tourist season is already well on its way, look no further than the uptick in traffic irritations over the past few weeks. Between a campaign against aggressive driving waged by Collier County Sheriffs Office with road signs indicating high crash sites and numb-skulled fender benders, locals can be in no doubt that our daily commute is about to undergo a transformation. Almost gone are the days of breezing through major intersections without sitting through three light changes, so gird your loins seasons coming. Despite the generalized irritation we all suffer on the roads for six months of each year, its also good to keep in mind you (or I) might be the problem, so heres a shortlist of transgressions to review if you suspect you might be frequently in the wrong. If you travel in the right lane on I-75 past an on-ramp, stop it. As someone who uses the interstate twice a day, I know the number of cars driving in packs to block people from safely merging is much, much higher than it was two weeks ago. Its not a crime, but it is crappy driving. Try to be a good person behind the wheel. If you havent seen the road signs indicating that youve entered a high crash area, its because you dont have your eyes on the road. Look up! If you habitually text at stoplights (Me! Me!) and the person behind needs to honk to get you to move, you are a problem at backed up intersections. Sorry. If you are ideologically opposed to driving faster than 35 mph and also to letting people pass you, I bet you drive a big truck. Everyone hates you during every minute of your commute. Hopefully, you arrive at work to rescue sick babies from burning buildings. If not, do better. If you actively avoided Livingston Road, Collier Boulevard and Vanderbilt Beach Road because traffic officers were nabbing violators (again, me), you know whats up and have places to be. Congratulations! Because traffic deaths are up by 10 percent in Collier County over this time last year, Im trying not to be so smug about my own driving. Twenty-two fatalities between January and June isnt a small number. The sheriffs office continues its campaign through December, and while most of us react to increased traffic enforcement with irritation, perhaps its necessary as we head into tourist season. We continually receive information from the public about motorists speeding, changing lanes without signaling, tailgating and reckless driving, Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk says. The goal of this initiative is to slow down traffic and reduce injury crashes and fatalities on our roads, while achieving voluntary compliance of traffic laws through education and enforcement. In the first three days of the campaign, CCSO issued 153 warnings, 38 citations and one DUI. Lindsey Nesmith is glad CCSO turned its attention to major thoroughfares and away from the three-way stop in her neighborhood.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ILLUSTRATIONS BY DOUG MACGREGOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYmove out. Suddenly, your home and your time are all yours again. You can do things when you want. Its kind of like that. But it doesnt mean you dont welcome them when they come back home, even if its just for a visit. All good things come to an end. Summers coming to a close, and the snowbirds and winter visitors and eventually, the springbreakers will find their way back. The humidity will disappear, and when it does, the hordes will reappear. Here are some things we think you should do before that happens. While some of these have to do with the entertainment, other suggestions might seem obvious and mundane, but its good to be reminded. Go out for dinner without making a reservation Pretty soon youll have to wait to be seated at your favorite restaurants. Sometimes for long periods of time, maybe even days. So take yourself out to eat now, while its easy to get a table. And take advantage of special promotions like buyone-get-one and/or complimentary wine with an entre. Take a staycation From Marco Island and Naples to Sanibel-Captiva and Fort Myers Beach, the resort hotels arent booked up yet. Take advantage of that and carve time out for a long weekend. Youll get the benefit of a vacation and time away from home without having to spend the money/take the time to fly or drive. Make a medical appointment Check in with your doctor, dentist, optometrist while their schedules are relatively clear. And dont forget your pets, either; get into the vet for for their yearly check-up. Get your car serviced Take your car in for a tune-up or any needed repairs or upkeep. Make use of your public library Check out those books youve been wanting to read while you can. When the snowbirds return, the waiting list for popular titles grows and the shelves get sparse, because more books are in circulation. Hop in your pool If you live in a condo or apartment complex and share a pool with other residents, enjoy it before it becomes filled with people. Pretend youre Katie Ledecki doing laps. Go to public pools Use your community pool. Or pack up the kids, the neighbors kids and/or the grandkids and hit Sun-N-Fun Lagoon in Naples.

She is a dedicated patron of the arts, a strong proponent of Floridas environmental preservation and supporter of educational advancement for youth.

UF report: Florida consumer sentiment continues downward trend THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAConsumer sentiment among Floridians plummeted 4.8 points in August to 88.2, according to the latest University of Florida consumer survey. In the lowest reading in the last year, all five components that make up the index declined. Perceptions of ones personal financial situation now compared with a year ago dropped most sharply, down 10.5 points, from 86.7 to 76.2. Expectations of personal finances a year from now fell by 7.8 points to 98.6. Opinions as to whether now is a good time to buy a bigticket item such as a car declined by 3.1 points, from 101.9 to 98.8. These downward readings were shared by all Floridians with the exception of those aged 60 and over, whose readings showed little change. Most of the pessimism in August stems from the perceptions of personal finance situation now compared with a year ago and the expectations of personal finance situation one year from now. Hector Sandoval, director of the economic analysis program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research, says the two components account for more than three-quarters of the change in the index. Readings on U.S. economic conditions were down slightly for both shortand long-term expectations: dropping 1.9 points to 85.1 for conditions over the next year and down nine-tenths of a point to 82.1 for the next five years. Five years ago, as Florida was recovering from the Great Recession in August 2011, consumer sentiment among Floridians was at its lowest level of 61.4 points. The effects of the recession were still felt in Florida, with high levels of unemployment at 9.6 percent and negative state Gross Domestic Product growth rates (a negative 2 percent). Today, Floridas consumer sentiment is 26.8 points higher, and the GDP increased by 2.1 percent in the first quarter of 2016 and ranked 10th in the nation, slightly higher than the 1.9 percent growth rate for the U.S. Furthermore, the real GDP growth rate in Florida has remained positive since 2012. Unemployment levels in Florida are at 4.7 percent, their lowest since the last recession and unchanged from the previous two months. Despite the positive economic signals, consumer sentiment among Floridians seems to remain gloomy, Mr. Sandoval says, adding except for Julys reading, consumer sentiment has followed a slightly downward trajectory over the last six months. He believes the states job market could be having an influence. Although the number of jobs added statewide has remained positive for an outstanding 72 consecutive months, unemployment levels have not decreased for the past three months, suggesting that the labor market has reached its natural unemployment level, he says. Its possible that economic agents are expecting a downturn in the economic activity in the medium-run, which is reflected in the latest trends of the consumer sentiment index. Some of the biggest drops in August were among those with incomes of $50,000 and more, down 10.4 points on expectations of their personal financial situation in a year. This might be partially due to concerns over decisions regarding retirement savings like IRAs and 401Ks, such as whether to move money out of the stock market over predictions of an upcoming correction after seven years of record increases. We should keep in mind that consumer sentiment is in part designed to predict consumer spending, says Chris McCarty, BEBR director. Like much of the rest of the country, retail sales in Florida have been boosted by auto sales, which are supported by historically low interest rates, he adds. Taking auto sales out of the picture, consumer demand for goods and services has been tepid and inflation well below the target rate of 2 percent. This is one of the indicators that raise questions for Federal Reserve Board members when they consider whether to raise interest rates in their September meeting, Mr. McCarty says. Most economists do not expect a rate increase any time soon. Conducted Aug. 1-21, the UF study reflects the responses of 415 individuals who were reached on cell phones and who represent a demographic crosssection of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2, the highest is 150. Details of this months survey can be found at bebr.ufl.edu/csi-data.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONSOutstanding in their fieldsThe recently concluded Olympics included a few of the more obscure athletic endeavors (such as dressage for horses and steeplechase for humans), but U.S. colleges compete in even less-heralded sports, such as wood chopping, rock climbing, fishing and broomball. University of Alabama, 2015 national football champions, dominates also in the 280-school bass-fishing competition, and New Yorks Paul Smith Colleges 5,000-student campus raucously cheers its championship log-splitting team (against seven other schools). And Ohio State whipped another football powerhouse, Nebraska, in ice-based broomball.Why? Because we can We now have computer or smartphone apps to, for example, analyze the quality of ones tongue-kissing; alert you when your zipper is inadvertently down; make a refrigerator also be a stereo and photo album; notify you when you need to drink more water; check the male-female ratio at local bars (so if youre on the prowl, you can plan your evening efficiently); and reveal whether your partner has had someone else in bed while you were away (via differential contours of the mattress). And then, just last month, the creators of the new South Park virtual reality game announced they had figured out how to release a fart smell that is crucial to game-players when they put on the VR mask. Inexplicable: Pizza Hut recently announced it had finally mastered the technology to turn its cardboard delivery boxes into customers workable disk-jockey turntables and will make them available shortly in five stores in the United Kingdom. (Each box has two record decks, a cross-fader, pitch and cue controls and the ability to rewind.) Music stars P Money and DJ Vectra are featured, and the boxes will sync via Bluetooth to phones and computers.Compelling explanations Lame: (1) Steven Scholz was sued for $255, 000 in Oregon City, Ore., in July after he allegedly fired on a familys house (15 gunshots) and traumatized their young son inside. Mr. Scholz explained that he thought the biblical rapture had just occurred and that he was the only survivor. (2) Aman Bhatia, 27, was charged with battery and lewd molestation in July after allegedly groping six women at Disney Worlds Typhoon Lagoon water park. Despite witnesses telling police that Mr. Bhatia was positioning himself for furtive groping, he claimed his glasses were broken and thus he was not aware that women were in his path. Also in July, Ryan Bundy (a leader of the Malheur federal land occupation protest in Oregon in January), exercising his philosophy as a sovereign, wrote his judge that he rejects the federal courts jurisdiction over him in his upcoming trial, but that he would agree to co-operate provided the government pays him $1 million cash. Mr. Bundy (who signs court documents i; ryan c., man) said for that sum, he would act as defendant or, as a bonus, if the judge prefers, as bailiff or even as judge. (Mr. Bundys lawyer, not surprisingly, is Mr. Bundy.)Ironies Recurring theme: People with too much money have been reported over the years to have paid enormous sums for prestigious license plates, usually the lowest-numbered. In China, where the number 8 is regarded as lucky, a man identified only as Liu obtained Shanghai provinces plate for which he paid the equivalent of $149,000. Shanghaiist.com reported in June that Lucky Liu was forced into annoying traffic stops by police eight times the first day because officers were certain that the plate was bogus. Greenlands first world-class tourist attraction, opening in 2020, will give visitors a stunning view of the rapidly melting ice sheets from the areas famous 250,000-year-old Jakobshavn Glacier. The United Nations-protected site is promoting a tourist vista that some call ground zero for climate change and that others hope wont be completely melted by 2020.Unclear on the concept Third-grade teacher Tracy Rosner filed a lawsuit against the county school board in Miami in July (claiming to be the victim of race and national origin discrimination) after being turned down for a job that required teaching Spanish because she doesnt speak Spanish. (Ms. Rosner said non-Hispanics like her are a minority among Miami schoolteachers and, therefore, affirmativeaction-style accommodations should have been made for her.) An Idaho man took his pregnant daughter, 14, and the man who raped her, age 24, to Missouri last year to get married (because of that states lenient marriage-age law), asserting that it is the rapists duty to marry a girl he gets pregnant. The father now says he was wrong, but an Idaho judge nonetheless sentenced him to 120 days behind bars for endangering his daughter. (The rapist received a 15-year sentence, and the pregnancy ended in miscarriage.) The passing parade(1) A traffic officer in Guelph, Ontario, pulled over a 35-year-old motorist on July 11 traveling 67 mph (108 km/h) in a 45 mph zone at night on a stretch with no highway lights and no headlights on his vehicle. The stopped driver was given citations even though he pointed out that he was watching the road with a flashlight on his head, held in place by straps. (2) Twentythree local-government bureaucrats in Boscotrecase, Italy, were disciplined in July after being caught shirking duties, including by falsifying the time clock. It was unclear whether the 23 included the two mystery workers photographed punching in for work while wearing cardboard boxes on their heads.

Whether the problem is a flat tire or something more serious, AAA service technicians will answer the call (providing the cyclist is at a location that can be reached in the service vehicle), secure the disabled bike to the service vehicle and transport both rider and bicycle to any point of safety within the members coverage. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that two out of five bicyclist fatalities are related to cyclists either not wearing a helmet or wearing a helmet incorrectly. Cyclists can decrease their risk of injury by wearing proper safety gear and knowing how to operate a bike safely. Safety tips for bicyclists 1. Know the rules of the road Always ride with traffic, using the rightmost lane, obeying the same laws as motorists. 2. Be visible Ride where drivers can see you. Do not ride on the sidewalk. 3. Be predictable Ride in a straight line and dont swerve between parked cars. Make eye contact with motorists to let them know you are there. 4. Anticipate conflicts Always be aware of traffic around you and be prepared to take evasive action. Exercise heightened caution at intersections. 5. Wear a helmet When worn properly, helmets are up to 85 percent effective in protecting the head and brain in the event of a crash. Safety tips for motorists 1. Share the road. Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists, including the right to ride in the traffic lane. 2. Slow down. Allow at least three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist. 3. Check mirrors and blind spots. Always check before turning, changing lanes or opening car doors. 4. Never honk your horn at a bicyclist. They could startle and swerve off the road or into traffic. 5. Be cautious. Watch out for children on bikes. They are often unsteady and unpredictable. 6. Stay alert. Avoid all distractions while driving. For more information about AAAs bicycle transportation service, visit AAA.com/bicycle.Taking your pet for a ride? As hotels, restaurants, and destinations are offering more pet-friendly options, pet owners are increasingly taking Fido along when they hit the road. A recent AAA consumer survey shows that 77 percent of pet owners enjoy bringing their furry companions along for the ride. More than one in three (35 percent), however, admit to never restraining their pet while riding in the car. This can lead to added distractions for the driver and increased dangers for all passengers, including pets. Almost two in five (37 percent) pet owners say they dont use a pet restraint because they primarily take short trips with their pet. But regardless of the length of the trip, in the case of an accident a loose pet will be thrown around the vehicle. A 10-pound dog involved in a crash at only 30 mph becomes a 300 pound projectile, while an unrestrained 80-pound dog will exert approximately 2,400 pounds of force, says Amy Stracke, managing director/traffic safety advocacy, for AAA-The Auto Club Group. This poses a serious risk of injury or even death for either your pet or anyone else in its path, she stresses. One in six (16 percent) pet owners admit to becoming distracted by their pet while driving. The majority of drivers admit to engaging in risky behavior while behind the wheel; petting their animal was the most common activity cited (42 percent). Other distracting behaviors drivers admitted to include allowing their pet to freely move from seat to seat (26 percent), allowing their pet to sit in their lap (26 percent), giving food or water (16 percent) and taking pictures of the pet (11 percent) while driving. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports that taking your eyes of the road for only two seconds doubles your risk of a crash. Attending to your pet while driving could easily involve taking your eyes off the road for more than two seconds. How to travel with your pet 1. Pets should always be confined to the back seat, either in a carrier or in a harness attached to the cars seat belt. 2. Never allow your pet to ride in the bed of a pickup truck. 3. Avoid placing animals in campers or trailers. 4. Dont let your dog stick its head out the window, no matter how enjoyable it seems. Road debris and other flying objects can injure delicate eyes and ears, and the animal is at greater risk for severe injury if the vehicle should stop suddenly or be struck. 5. Never leave an animal in a parked car, even if the windows are partially open. Even on pleasant days, the temperature inside a car can soar to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in less than 10 minutes. Also, animals left unattended in parked cars can be stolen.

Inspired?Field trips go along with the fundamentals during summer academy for TIF students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIts not just the absent-minded professors among us who forget things sometimes; plenty of students do, too. Making sure young students retain the lessons they learn throughout the school year is the idea behind The Immokalee Foundations Middle School Summer Academy, which this summer focused on literacy skills and an interactive STEM project for 28 Career Development program and Take Stock in Children students. The students spent three hours a day working on regular school subjects and furthered their educational journeys in reading, with lessons in vocabulary and strategies for greater comprehension. Additional study in science, technology, engineering and math was presented as well, with the introduction of scientific methods and ways to judge the reliability of results. During the final hour of the program day, students were involved in teambuilding activities, team sports or presentations from community members on healthy lifestyles. If someone were to ask the sixth-, seventhand eighth-graders about this program, its more likely they would talk about the field trips. Elmer Santiagos favorite was a boat trip on Captiva Cruises to Cayo Costa Island. When we were moving, the wind was in our faces and it was a good feeling, in my opinion, he said. And the coolest part was when we saw dolphins in the water. It was my first time seeing a dolphin in person and it was truly an amazing experience. And when we got to the island we swam in the ocean. The waves were pretty hard, but it was worth it. I hope I can be in the program again next year. The Middle School Summer Academy students also visited The Naples Zoo, and a trip to Barnes & Noble served as an extension of their reading curriculum. As a supplement to their STEM studies, they toured Florida SouthWestern State Colleges crime scene lab to see what the study of forensics is all about. Elmer said the Summer Academy classes actually made him more interested in books. That heightened interest in reading will help him as eighth-grade student this year at Immokalee Middle School, but science and math remain his favorite subjects. I really like math because it gets me excited when I do a problem and get it correct because to me it means I learned something from the lesson that day, he said. That kind of excitement for learning is a goal of all The Immokalee Foundations programs. Education and exposure to different ways of life encourage students who are growing up with fewer resources to dream big and know that if they work hard, a college education and a good job are well within their reach. Elmer plans to study architecture once he graduates from high school. The Career Development and Take Stock in Children programs, which make students eligible for the Middle School Summer Academy, are just two of the foundations offerings. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence. To learn more about volunteering as a career panel speaker or host, becoming a mentor, making a donation or including The Immokalee Foundation in your estate plans, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation.org.

BEHIND THE WHEELIts a great time to be considering a family sedanIt used to be the only requirements for a midsize family sedan were that the kids fit in the back and the color was acceptable. But this longstanding breadand-butter market for car companies is going through a revolution. As competition heats up, a class once dominated by utility is now home to affordable and interesting choices. Two of the more noteworthy vehicles out there right now are the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat. Both can be delivered in a desirable specification for under $30,000. But their allure is very different. This comparison couldnt have been made a dozen years ago. Back then, the Malibu was the ugly kid trying to make friends with low price rather than build quality, and the Passat was reaching too far into the upper classes to want to be seen with the value-minded folks.Today the Chevy is a far different machine. The Malibu arrived for 2016 with a full redesign that makes it arguably one of the sleekest midsize sedans on the market. VWs Passat continues to offer smart European styling, but the revised sedan has smaller motors and a smaller price.Inside, the Malibu is about feeling light and airy. Features like a long dashboard and a large gap for storage underneath the climate control open up the cabin. So while it looks sleek and sporty on the outside, it performs a nice trick of not feeling compact behind the wheel. The Passat in the upper-level SE trim goes for a more enveloping driver atmosphere. It doesnt feel more compact than the Malibu, but the essential controls are all within closer reach of the driver, making the VW feel like the sportier buy of the duo. Both cars come loaded for under $30,000 with dual-zone climate control, touchscreen infotainment radio, keyless ignition and backup cameras with radar assist. But the best feature is the 38 and 39 inches of legroom offered by the Malibu and Passat, respectively easily enough room to keep adults comfortable. Its important to note that we are comparing high-optioned vehicles here. Many of the comfort features can be deleted to save money, and the interior space remains the same. Were just examining premium sedans for a reasonable price. The base price of a Pa ssat is $23,620. The Malibu Hybrid begins around $28K and comes loaded; the traditional gasengine models with fewer comfort features start at $22,500. The hybrid version of the Chevy was chosen for this comparison because the gas/electric drivetrain is what really helps make this sedan feel special. The 1.8-liter motor is not particularly powerful, it produces only 122 hp total, even with the electric help. But how it all works together makes the experience fun; this car is a constant interactive experience quite the opposite of the family sedans snoozer image. The Passat might be built in the USA, but the sedan goes for a more German engineered approach. It has a 1.8-liter motor like the Malibu, but with the addition of a turbocharger, the VW delivers a respectable 170 hp. The peppy engine combined with the exceptionally sharp handling makes for a lively driving package. So both sedans do a nice job of feeling like more than just driving an appliance. Fuel economy is not necessarily on everyones minds these days, but those looking at a family sedan usually are the first ones to pay attention. After all, these cars are likely to see everything from soccer runs to cross-country road trips. This is where the Malibu Hybrid has an obvious advantage, with an EPA rating of 47/46 mpg city/highway. For those who need a little more power, the Passats turbo motor returns a very respectable 25/38 mpg city/highway. The Chevy and the VW are two very different vehicles. What they share is the ability to deliver an engaging experience while remaining practical and affordable. The decision of which one to buy is up to individual taste, but its clear that this is a great era to be a family sedan shopper. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The review was conducted by a group of scientists from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health at the National Institutes of Health. Millions of Americans suffer from persistent pain that is not fully relieved by medications. They often turn to complementary health approaches to help, yet primary care providers have lacked a robust evidence base to guide recommendations on complementary approaches as practiced and available in the United States. The new review gives primary care providers who frequently see patients with chronic pain tools to inform decision-making on how to help manage that pain. For many Americans who suffer from chronic pain, medications may not completely relieve pain and can produce unwanted side effects, says NCCIH lead epidemiologist Richard Nahin, lead author of the analysis. As a result, he adds, many people turn to nondrug approaches to help manage their pain. Our goal for this study was to provide relevant, high-quality information for primary care providers and for patients who suffer from chronic pain. The researchers reviewed 105 U.S.based randomized controlled trials, from the past 50 years, that were relevant to pain patients in the United States and met inclusion criteria. Although the reporting of safety information was low overall, none of the clinical trials reported significant side effects due to the interventions.The review focused on U.S.-based trial results on seven approaches used for one or more of five painful conditions back pain, osteoarthritis, neck pain, fibromyalgia and severe headaches/migraine and found promise in the following for safety and effectiveness in treating pain: Acupuncture and yoga for back pain Acupuncture and tai chi for osteoarthritis of the knee Massage therapy for neck pain with adequate doses and for short-term benefit Relaxation techniques for severe headaches and migraine. Though the evidence was weaker, the researchers also found that massage therapy, spinal manipulation and osteopathic manipulation might provide some help for back pain, and relaxation approaches and tai chi might help people with fibromyalgia. These data can equip providers and patients with the information they need to have informed conversations regarding non-drug approaches for treatment of specific pain conditions, David Shurtleff, NCCIH deputy director says. Its important that continued research explore how these approaches actually work and whether these findings apply broadly in diverse clinical settings and patient populations.

Since late June, her vision has deteriorated noticeably. It was obvious before then that she had cataracts, but they have progressed enough to limit her vision. She has walked into walls when shes in unfamiliar areas, and she sometimes has trouble following my movements when Im setting down her food dish or handing out treats. A cataract is cloudiness, or opacity, in the lens of the eye. Although it looks as if its a film on the surface of the eyeball, the cloudy lens is deep inside a dog or cats eye, according to the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmology. Cataracts are inherited in many breeds, including Boston terriers, cocker spaniels, golden retrievers, Labrador retrievers, miniature schnauzers, poodles, Siberian huskies and wirehaired fox terriers. They most commonly develop when a dog is 1 to 5 years old. Health ailments such as diabetes, inflammation and trauma can also lead to cataract formation. Cataracts may also develop as a dog ages. Sometimes cataracts remain small throughout a dogs life; other times they worsen to the point of blindness. Depending on a dogs age, health and the severity of vision loss, cataracts can be removed surgically. Its not a simple process, though. Two tests, an electroretinogram (ERG) and an ultrasound, are performed beforehand to assess the health of the retina and determine whether removing the cataracts would improve vision. If the dog is a good candidate for surgery, eye drops are administered several times daily before the procedure. With the dog under anesthesia, the ophthalmologist makes a small incision and, using a technique called phacoemulsification, breaks up the cataract with ultrasonic vibrations and then removes the particles. For sharper vision, an artificial lens can be implanted inside the eye. The eye drop regimen continues for approximately six weeks following surgery. The cone of shame makes an appearance, too. The dog must wear a protective soft or plastic Elizabethan collar for two weeks to ensure that he doesnt scratch or otherwise injure the eye. Baths and vaccinations are forbidden until the eye heals. Cataract surgery has a high success rate, but like any surgery, it can have risks and complications. Rainey, a beagle, had congenital cataracts. Her owner, Denise Nord, who lives northwest of Minneapolis, opted for surgery for the then-1-year-old dog to improve her quality of life and permit continued involvement in dog sports such as tracking, agility and obedience. Rainey is now 8 years old and doesnt have great vision, but Nord says she would choose surgery again, even with the complications her dog had. She did well for quite a while, but over time the lens rolled up, and she lost the near vision in one eye, Nord says. She is on drops for high eye pressure. Pets of the Week>> Abel is a handsome 18-month-old domestic shorthair who keeps his rich, soft coat meticulously groomed. He loves to sit in your lap for petting. >> Haley is an affectionate 2-year-old domestic medium hair who longs for her forever home. >> Nash is a friendly 3-year-old hound mix who weighs about 49 pounds. He knows the basics, has plenty of energy and is a good walker. >> Teri is a beautiful, calm 18-month-old Staffordshire terrier mix who weighs about 50 pounds. She loves playing with people and other dogs, especially in a wading pool.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services.

But the truth is, as we careen toward November with keyboards, tablets and smartphones poised to post/share/copy/ like/comment, its only going to get worse. Much worse. Ive had a Facebook page since 2008. If you remember correctly, the elections that year were pretty touchy (I can see Russia from my house!), but back then I had maybe 53 Facebook friends at the most, so the social media platform wasnt exactly chock full of excitement. In fact, my status on Aug. 31, 2008, was: Stephanie Davis is making potato salad. Apparently, I felt a strong need to share that breaking news with my loyal followers. Now that I have more than 2,000 Facebook friends, it seems theres never a dull moment especially during election season. On one hand, I think Facebook is a great way to get a conversation going about something, whether you want to raise awareness of our areas water woes or vent about a local politician, OR whether you want to vent about someone whos venting about the same local politician. But sometimes things can get heated. Uncomfortably so. Personally, when someone makes a statement I dont agree with, I say nothing. You can call me politically correct if you want, but my mother would call me smart. She always said, If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. And this was light years before there was a World Wide Web, let alone social media. Still, I believe the rule applies. And while I think most of our mothers doled out the exact same advice, many of us forget dear Mom where social media is concerned. Lately, Ive had several instances where a friend will share an opinion and Ill see another friend disagree, vehemently. I dont comment, but I do tend to lurk nearby with a bag of popcorn to see how far it goes. Ive even been known to screenshot a thread, text it to a mutual friend with the message, OMG! Get on FB right now! Two of our friends are screaming at each other! And by screaming I mean hurling punctuation marks and capital letters through cyberspace at one another. You have NO idea what youre talking about!!! Did you even READ the article I posted??? My page, my opinion! Deleting your comment!! DELETING YOU! WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING??? Meanwhile, while the feuding friends are likely perfectly fine with having this exchange for all to see, IM the one getting anxious and uncomfortable. All I can think about is the girls night I am hosting in a couple of weeks and how I can only invite ONE of them now. And if I only invite one and she puts photos of it on Facebook, will the other see it and be mad at ME? Wait. I havent even done anything. I didnt comment on the controversial post. I didnt like any of the opinions, therefore seeming to take a side. Im just over here munching my popcorn and feeling plagued with a misplaced sense of guilt. There has to be a term for it when a close friend or family member posts a strong political opinion that you dont agree with. You see it, but you cant click like in support. Maybe call it Social Media Switzerland? I always feel as if my more strongly opinionated friends are registering my neutrality and crossing me off their Christmas card lists in a huff. Then when other friends chime in with a different opinion and I dont cheer them on with a like, they become the ones marking me off their card lists. I worry that because of Facebook, I will have a sad, empty mailbox this holiday season. So, you folks feuding on Facebook about politics and current events, please consider your peace-loving pacifist friends like me. Think less about your own opinions, and more about my girls night parties and holiday mailbox. I know, I know we have more than two more months of this strife and were just getting started, so Ill try to focus on happy kitten videos, photos of adorable children and grandbabies and, my favorite of all, pictures of fabulous-looking cocktails. I will like all the cocktails I see on Facebook, because vodka is likely going to be the only way I survive until November. My status has changed from Stephanie is making potato salad in 2008 to Stephanie is making a Bloody Mary in 2016. Cheers. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Originally, the SCORE acronym stood for Service Corps of Retired Executives, but because many mentors continue to work, the organization is now recognized as SCORE Counselors to Americas Small Business. As one of the top retirement destinations in the U.S., its no surprise that there are hundreds of volunteer mentors across South Florida. The Southwest Florida SCORE was established in Fort Myers in 1970. Jack Dunigan, chair of the chapter for two years, is a retired trainer/consultant for both profit and nonprofit organizations, and has been a mentor with SCORE for four years. He said hes seen a significant growth in clients recently. The SCORE in Fort Myers mentored 350 to 400 businesses this past year, he said. Weve been very aggressive about getting out into the community and demonstrating how effective SCORE can be, Mr. Dunigan said. Since we serve not only Lee County, but also Hendry and Glades, were always networking at chamber of commerce events, Rotary and Kiwanis meetings and more. Mr. Dunigan said social media has been a challenge for some retired mentors. Many see the internet as an intrusion, he said. But its proven to be an effective business marketing tool. So were very proactive in instructing our mentors. These days, SCORE uses the technology available, whether its mentoring via email, Skype or phone. There are so many ways we can reach out and help business people and entrepreneurs, Mr. Dunigan said. We provide the tools, resources, workshops and experience. The idea is to help our local business community grow and thrive. Penny Pompei, chapter chair of Palm Beach Score, said business is booming. We serve all of the North Palm Beach area, said Ms. Pompei, who describes herself as a serial entrepreneur. The volume of new requests for mentors has gone up dramatically last year, we had 600 new requests; this year its been well over 700, with 95 requests in the month of July alone, Ms. Pompei said. Ms. Pompei holds the distinction of being the first woman chair of the 41-year old Palm Beach chapter of SCORE and says that the needs of the local business community have evolved. These days we spend at least half of our time mentoring businesses that are already established, she said. It used to be just start-ups, but now were helping current businesses with problem solving, hiring, financing, and whatever they need. One of the largest SCORE chapters on the West coast of Florida is in Naples, which serves all of Collier County and some of southern Lee County. Frank Friend, SCORE Naples director of marketing, said between 50 and 60 volunteer mentors serve up to 40 new clients each month. Weve noticed a real upswing in business over the last year, said Mr. Friend. And were responding a lot to women entrepreneurs. Only about 10 percent of women business owners employ someone other than themselves; our new program called Insights Into Successful Business Strategies was created by SCORE women mentors for Naples area women business owners. On Nov. 19, the chapter will host a conference with workshops geared exclusively for women business owners. In Port Charlotte, Bob Burkholder, who has been a mentor with Port Charlotte Score for more than eight years, acknowledges that there is less business activity in the Charlotte County area due to fewer major corporations, but points out that the chapter, which also serves DeSoto County and southern Sarasota County, sees a regular flow of requests for mentors. Mr. Burkholder said the Port Charlotte SCORE, like the other chapters of SCORE in South Florida, has had to adapt with the times and that perhaps the biggest challenge of the past few years has been the advent of social media and the internet in the business world. The fundamentals of business havent changed, said Mr. Burkholder. But since many of our volunteers retired before social media played a part in making a business a success, weve had to deal with a learning curve.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGTarget date funds are never a prudent investment choiceAmericans have a global reputation for being lazy. After all, we are the country that in 1950 invented the TV remote control when there were only three TV stations to choose from (little known fact that Zenith, the company that developed the new device, branded the first TV remote Lazy Bones). So it should come as no surprise that we are lazy when it comes to investing, as well. This is probably why almost all fund companies have developed target date funds. You tell the company when you would like these mutual funds to retire and they do all of the investing for you. What could be easier? But are these funds truly a good investment? Buying a target date fund is very simple. Lets say you are 40 today and would like to retire when you are 65. Twenty-five years brings us to 2041 so we would buy a 2040 target date fund. And, in theory, we can keep adding money to this one fund until we retire in 25 years. Behind the scenes, the fund is relying on two core principles of investing. First, equities outperform bonds in the long run. In theory, this makes sense, as bonds have a higher claim on a companys assets and cash flow. Bond investors always get paid before equity dividends and in a bankruptcy, bond principal gets paid back before equity holders. Therefore, equity holders must demand a higher return to compensate them for this risk. Over the long run this proves true. The second core principle is that bond prices are less volatile than stock prices. Again, in the long-term, this is shown to be correct. In fact, stocks were more than three times more volatile that bonds over the last half century. This should not be surprising, as equities are more risky than bonds. So what a target fund does is use these principles to allocate the percentage of stocks and bonds it holds in the fund. When you are far away from retirement the fund holds a high percentage of stocks and low percentage of bonds because you are looking for a high return and can take on more risk. But as you get closer to your target retirement date, the fund increases the percentage of bonds held because you should be more concerned about capital preservation rather than returns. The problem I see with a target date fund is that if that is your primary investment, you are dangerously nondiversified especially as you reach retirement age. Being concentrated in one investment, even if that is a safe investment like government bonds, is never a good idea. This is especially true today, when interest rates around the world are at all-time lows. At some point, these rates will rise. It may be next month or next year, or even the next decade, but interest rates will not be close to zero forever. And with bonds, when rates rise, prices decline. You certainly do not want to be holding a large percentage of your assets in bonds when this occurs but that is exactly what you will be doing if you hold a target date fund and are close to retirement. So is it my advice to avoid a target date fund? Yes, that is my recommendation. Diversification is critical for investors no matter what stage of life you are in. Target date funds rob you of this critical strategy. Having a balance of stocks, bonds, funds, commodities, real estate and other investments is the best hedge against any time of market movement. Of course, the balance of these investments must shift as your life priorities change but I dont believe putting your eggs in one basket is a safe or prudent choice. It is just lazy. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Awards & Recognition Chef/chocolatier Molly Cook at Norman Love Confections won the Chocolatier of the Year award and the Peoples Choice Award at the recent Pastry Live competition in Atlanta.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Critical Social Security TipsSocial Security is vastly important to most retirees, often providing more than half of their income, and in many cases more than 90 percent. Thus, its critical to make smart decisions about it. Here are some tips: Find out how much you can expect to receive by visiting the Social Security website at ssa.gov and setting up a my Social Security account. (To give you a rough idea, the average Social Security retirement benefit was recently $1,350 per month, or about $16,000 per year, while the maximum benefit for those retiring at their full retirement age was recently $2,639 per month or about $32,000 for the whole year.) Knowing what you can expect can help in retirement planning. Know that you can control how much you receive, to some degree. Your full retirement age is between 65 and 67, depending on your birth year, but you can start collecting your benefits as early as age 62. Collecting early will make your checks smaller, but youll get more of them, so it can be close to a wash. For every year you delay collecting from your full retirement age to age 70, you can increase your benefits by 8 percent. Delay from age 67 to 70, and your checks will be about 24 percent bigger. Dont think youll receive little or no benefits if you havent earned much taxable income in your life or if youre widowed or divorced. Those who are married, divorced or widowed may be able to claim benefits based on their current, exor late spouses earnings record generally collecting between 50 to 100 percent of the spouses benefit. (Divorced persons need to have been married for at least 10 years and to not have remarried.) Benefits are calculated based on your earnings in the 35 years in which you earned the most money (adjusted for inflation). Aim to work at least that long, if you can. Finally, read up on spousal strategies, as coordinating when you and your spouse start collecting benefits can make a big difference. Not-So-Smooth SailingIn 2007 I bought 100 shares of Evergreen Solar on the recommendation of someone I trusted. At one point my investment was up 92 percent, but, thinking the company was solid, I neglected to place a trailing stop order to lock in my gains. I went on a sailing trip with no internet access for a while. When I returned, Evergreen had dropped by more than 90 percent. The company went bankrupt, and my shares are now worthless. This was probably my dumbest investment. N.V.W., J amaicaThe Fool Responds: Ouch. A trailing stop order would likely have helped you, but it doesnt always do what you want it to. It permits you to leave an order in place to sell your holding if the price drops by a specified percentage or dollar value. Thus, if the stock creeps up, you dont need to keep resetting your stop order. If you set it at 10 percent and your holding drops by 11 percent one day, the order will be triggered and your shares sold. The order can fail you, though, if a stock drops gradually over time, never by enough to trigger the sale. It can also not work well if a stock plunges very quickly, when there may not be time for your order to be fulfilled at your desired price. Its best to keep an eye on any holdings that may be volatile. A Money MouseWalt Disney (NYSE: DIS) is the undisputed global entertainment king, with enormously valuable brands such as Disney itself, ESPN, ABC, Pixar and Marvel. In addition, it has the intellectual rights to many of the most valuable fictional characters and franchises in the world. The company has a fairly unique business model, with the ability to monetize its assets via multiple platforms. For example, a massively successful movie such as Frozen or Star Wars: The Force Awakens presents opportunities in areas such as toys and merchandising, home entertainment, live shows and theme park attractions. Many consumers are shifting from cable TV toward online streaming alternatives, and this is putting some pressure on Disneys networks division. To offset this, Disney has taken a 33 percent stake in the video-streaming service BAMTech, a leader in sports streaming. Meanwhile, its other segments such as movie studios and parks continue to perform well. Disney produced almost $13 billion in revenue during the quarter ended on April 2, up 4 percent over the yearago quarter, while adjusted earnings per share, up 11 percent, posted the 11th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth.Disneys stock was recently trading 20 percent below its peak, with its price-toearnings (P/E) ratio of 17.4 below its fiveyear average. The stock recently yielded 1.5 percent and is worth considering as a long-term holding. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Disney.) I trace my roots back to 1724, when a publishing company I later acquired was founded. The organization with my current name was born in 1844 as a building company in England. Today, based in London, Im the worlds biggest education company, employing more than 35,000 people in more than 70 countries. I used to own The Financial Times and related publications, but sold that unit to a Japanese company last year. I rake in close to $6 billion annually. My products and services serve 75 million learners, and Im aiming for 200 million in 10 years. Who am I? (Answer: Pearson) Capital Gains TaxesQAre capital gains taxes the same no matter how much I earn? C.R., La Crosse, WisconsinANope. For many folks, the longterm capital gains tax rate is 15 percent. It can be zero, though, if youre in the 15or 10-percent tax bracket, and if youre in the highest tax bracket, its 20 percent. Some high earners will also face a 3.8 percent Medicare surtax on their net investment income. Short-term gains (from assets held for a year or less) are taxed at your ordinary income tax rate. If you have capital losses, you can use them to offset your gains and reduce your tax bill. ***QCan you have too many shares of one stock in your portfolio? T.S., PhiladelphiaAIts not the number of shares that matters, but their total value. You might have 1,000 shares of one stock, worth a total of $5,000, and 100 shares of another stock, worth $10,000. Focus on the percentage of your portfolio that each stock represents and dont let any one stocks percentage get too high. For instance, if one holding represents, say, 25 percent of your entire portfolio, thats rather risky. If the stock plunges, your portfolio will take a big hit. Thus, if one holding grows into too big a chunk of your portfolio, consider selling some shares of it. On the other hand, if you hold gobs of stocks, and your biggest holding represents just 2 percent of your portfolio, thats not ideal, either. If that stock doubles or triples, its overall effect will be small. For many people, roughly 10 to 20 stocks is a good number of holdings enough for diversification, but not more than you can keep up with. Want more information about stocks?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 REAL ESTATE B15 An historic Miami Beach compound that Al Capone bought in 1928, the home he used as an alibi for the Saint Valentines Day Massacre and the place where he died in 1947 may or may not have recently sold for $9 million. Since Capones death, the storied estate has changed hands many times. Although several U.S. and UK media sources recently reported that the home had sold to Mino Raiola, the Dutch super-agent who represents many of Manchester Uniteds soccer stars, the company that maintains the property has denied any sale of the property. Although many crimes were likely orchestrated from the residence, Capone was seen as a hero and philanthropist by much of the American public, funding one of Chicagos largest soup kitchens during the Great Depression and free milk for Chicago school children. Lawmakers were never able to pin gangland events directly to him, and he continued to live in his Palm Island residence in relative peace until the feds convicted and imprisoned him in 1931 for tax evasion. Capone returned to the residence in 1939 when his prison sentence was reduced due to his deteriorating physical and mental condition. He died there on Jan. 25, 1947, surrounded by family and a few friends. Whether newly sold or not, the Capone mansion is an iconic piece of modern American history, old world glamour and an ideal location. With each change in ownership, there have been improvements to the property, with the most current owner completing a full restoration. At 36,000 square feet, it includes the seven-bedroom, seven-bath main home that is gated and walled, the two-story gatehouse and twostory pool house overlooking 100 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay and a view of Hibiscus Island. Original features include an Art Deco black and gold tiled bathroom and a living room fireplace. Capones mansion is now renamed as 93 Palm Island and available for rent for photo and video productions. According to its website, the home is one of the oldest and most notorious estates in Miami with -foot walls and secured 24 hours a day ... surrounded by the Biscayne Bay on all sides. Borelli Construction has completed and sold its f ourth luxury r esidenc e in the central Naples neighborhood of Hemingway Place, and a new model home is coming soon. At 1436 Hemingway Place, the fourth home to be sold was designed by Weber Design Group Inc. The five-bedroom, 5-bath home has 4,328 square feet of air-conditioned living space and 6,038 total square feet. Details include: Carrara marble countertops and numerous custom built-ins, Thermador appliances, a wine refrigerator, a whole-house Sonos sound system and security camera system, an elevator, an outdoor kitchen and fireplace and a gas-heated pool/spa. The second floor also has a morning bar and a second laundry room for the convenience of guests. Hemingway Place is on a private cul-de-sac between U.S. 41 and Goodlette-Frank Road.

Pontasch, M.D., FAADBoard Certied DermatologyANDChristopher M. Buckley, DO, FAAD, FAOCD, FACMSBoard Certied Dermatology, Fellowship Trained Mohs SurgeonDOWNTOWN NAPLES MARCO ISLAND FLORIDA WRITERSGerman luxury liner stars in a stunning Holocaust narrativeThe Nazi Titanic by Robert P. Watson. Da Capo Press. 292 pages. Hardcover, $25.99.An award-winning historian and professor at Floridas Lynn University, Boca Raton resident Robert Watson has sunk his scholarly teeth into a fascinating subject. His story involves the several careers of the German luxury passenger ship the Cap Arcona. Built in 1927 as a symbol of Germanys return to prominence after crushing defeat in World War I, the oceanliner ran routes to and from South America for many years, until the Great Depression lessened demand. The author introduces the first career of the estimable floating grand hotel with background about its design and engaging information about the company that built it and the premier cruise line that owned it. Whenever possible, he gives us capsule biographies of those who a hand in planning, constructing and operating the ship. Indeed, his portraits of the major players in the ships checkered history bring life and personality to his otherwise inanimate subject.Taken out of service and essentially mothballed through much of the 1930s, the later roles of the Cap Arcona are imbedded in Holocaust history. To contextualize the ships wartime career, Mr. Watson offers a well-rounded treatment of the rise of Hitlers Nazi regime, with its unparalleled publicity machine run by Joseph Goebbels that rationalized the persecution and destruction of Europes Jews. Goebbels initiated a monumental propaganda film that would symbolically attach the Third Reichs destiny to the sinking of the Titanic. Indeed, Goebbels had by now become obsessed with filmmaking and had learned a lesson about subtle styles of propaganda by studying Americas wartime patriotic cinema. With an enormous and ever-expanding budget, a prominent director and screenwriter and strong support from Hitler, the project moved forward but finally collapsed under its own weight. The film debut of Cap Arcona as the title character in Titanic revived the ship through restorative maintenance, a facelift and refurnishing. The film was never officially released, however, and few got to see the old girls performance. Mr. Watson provides a glimpse of maniacal Goebbels as Hitlers propaganda minister and of other players in the Nazi regime. After its show business fiasco, Cap Arcona became a transport vessel essentially a part of the German navy. It moved German soldiers and civilians from Baltic ports away from the onslaught of the Red Army. As Allied forces pressed upon the Nazis in 1945, Hitlers stooges sought to hide evidence of the concentration and death camps, forcing tens of thousands of halfdead prisoners, mostly Jews, onto floating concentration camps onboard several ships in the Baltic Sea port at Lbeck Bay. Many of these prisoners came from the notorious Neuengamme concentration camp. The plan might have been to sink the extremely overcrowded vessels, among them the Cap Arcona.While the process of squeezing camp prisoners onto ships that were not provisioned to sustain them continued, another plan was developed by the Swedish diplomat Count Folke Bernadotte. Vice chairman of the Swedish Red Cross, this valiant humanitarian brought several of that organizations hospital ships in and out of the southern Baltic to rescue concentration camp prisoners. In the confusion of conflicting Nazi orders, Bernadotte pressed Heinrich Himmler to allow access to concentrations camps, first to rescue Norwegians and Danes, but later other prisoners. Bernadotte is a true hero.April and May of 1945 were filled with good and bad news. Defeat of Nazi Germany did not diminish the horror of discovering the astounding number of dead and dying bodies in the various liberated camps. The Nazis failed, in the end, to hide their genocidal atrocities. British forces gained control over Germanys Baltic coast. Typhoon fighterbombers of the British Royal Air Force played an important role. However, they also contributed to the swan song of the Cap Arcona, mistakenly bombing the ship shortly before Germanys surrender. Revealing previously untold details of WWII and Holocaust history, Mr. Watsons study is both enlightening and engaging. His portraits of survivors, Nazi officials, European politicians, ships captains and other participants create a remarkable mosaic of the good and evil in human nature.The books two appendices speculate on two important questions: Why did the Nazis load prisoners on the ship? and Did the RAF know about the Cap Arcona? The author offers fine chapter notes and a large number of photographs. 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 texbook. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com Robert P.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 C3 239.434.6533/thirdstreetsouth.com Every Saturday Morning from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Featuring Dozens of Vendors All Summer LongIn the Parking Lot behind Tommy Bahama between Third & Gordon Drive CELEBRITY EXTRATheres good news from Nashville BY CINDY ELAVSKYReaders: I promised I would update you on any Nashville news, and I finally have some good stuff to tell you. Season five will premiere with a twohour show at 9 p.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 5, on CMT. The new season will consist of 22 episodes, with each available on Hulu for streaming the day after it airs. All cast members, with the exception of Will Chase (Luke Wheeler) and Aubrey Peeples (Layla Grant) are returning. However, as of this writing, Connie Britton, who plays country matriarch Rayna James, has signed on to only 10 of the 22 episodes, with rumors swirling that this will be her final season. But we can rest assured that Juliette Barnes did not die in a fiery plane crash, a la Patsy Cline, since Hayden Panitierre has signed on for all 22 episodes, along with the rest of the cast. Q: Since Donald Trump is running for president, I just assumed that Celebrity Apprentice had been canceled, but my wife says it hasnt. Can you give me the scoop? Surely he cant do this TV show and run for office at the same time. Daniel F., Lake City, Fla.A: You are correct: The Donald cant do both at the same time, which is why he quit the NBC series when he threw his hat into the political ring (although NBC maintains it cut ties with him first). However, your wife also is correct: Celebrity Apprentice will be back with a new host. Keeping with the celebrity/politician theme, it would seem, the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has signed on to host a revamped version of the show. Celebrity guests for the Arnold era include: Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Boy George, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Vince Neil, Nicole Snooki Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams, Ricky Williams and Carnie Wilson. And, like The Donald, Arnold will have his own set of advisers, including Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba and Los Angeles Clippers owner and former Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer, who each will bring a unique business expertise to the boardroom.

Sully (Sept. 9) Tom Hanks stars as Chesley Sully Sullenberger, whom youll recall landed the US Air flight he was piloting on the Hudson River in January 2009. Sully might have saved all 155 people on board that day, but director Clint Eastwood is also interested in exploring the aftermath, including those who questioned Sullys decisions. Snowden (Sept. 16) Director Oliver Stone tells NSA-whistleblower Edward Snowdens (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) story, and Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto co-star. Itll be interesting to see if Mr. Stone addresses this as a political issue (which its not) or a moral and ethical issue (which it is). Bridget Joness Baby (Sept. 16) We know its Bridget Joness (Renee Zellweger) baby, but we dont know if the baby daddy is her ex-lover Mark (Colin Firth) or the new guy in her life, Jack (Patrick Dempsey). Tough choice, but youd have to hope for the one we call McDreamy (Mr. Dempsey), right? The Magnificent Seven (Sept. 23) Im trying to remember the last remake I liked. Ghostbusters? No. Point Break? Youve got to be kidding me. Ben-Hur? Lord, no. But surely when Denzel Washington reunites with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua to remake this 1960 classic, and teams with box office golden boy Chris Pratt, it has to be a good thing, right? Queen of Katwe (Sept. 23) Oscar winner Lupita Nyongo stars as the mother of a Ugandan chess prodigy alongside David Oyelowo (Selma) in the latest from Mira Nair (The Namesake). Expect excellence across the board. Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children (Sept. 30) Tim Burton is back in the directors chair for this story of a group of teens with unique talents on a British island run by Eva Greenes Miss Peregrine that is, until Samuel L. Jacksons villainous Barron tries to take their powers. I wonder if Mr. Jackson threatens to strike down upon them with furious vengeance. Deepwater Horizon (Sept. 30) Remember the oilrig that exploded 41 miles off the Gulf Coast of Louisiana in 2010, leading to one of the biggest environmental disasters in human history? This is the story of the people it affected, starring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Hudson. The Birth Of A Nation (Oct. 7) The early Oscar front-runner (an accolade it received at the Sundance Film Festival in January) tells the story of a preacher who leads a slave uprising in 1831. This is one of those times where all the hype and buzz will lead to greater scrutiny, so lets hope it really is that good. The Girl On The Train (Oct. 7) Emily Blunt plays a divorcee who takes a train by her old home (where her exhusband lives with his new family) every day and comes to envy the couple living next door that is, until she sees something shocking and later wakes to find herself battered and bruised, unable to recall how she got that way. Sounds great, and its from the director of The Help and based on Paula Hawkins acclaimed novel. The Accountant (Oct. 14) Ben Affleck plays an autistic forensic accountant who cooks the books for criminals in this action thriller; Anna Kendrick also stars. Mr. Affleck has never been a great actor, but director Gavin OConnor did phenomenal work with Warrior (2011), so watch for this to sneak up on people. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Oct. 21) Tom Cruise returns to the title role, this time teaming with a female badass (Cobie Smulders) to take down a military conspiracy. Inferno (Oct. 28) The good news is Tom Hanks has a decent hair cut as Professor Robert Langdon. The bad news is he has amnesia in this Ron Howard-directed film, the third in the Da Vinci Code trilogy. Doctor Strange (Nov. 4) Yet another tangential part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this time with Benedict Cumberbatch as a surgeon who loses his hands but gains mystical powers. No joke: Tilda Swinton plays a character depicted as an Asian man in the comics. Trolls (Nov. 4) No, this is not about the gutless losers who anonymously berate others on social media (a practice commonly called trolling), but rather a sweet animated yarn about those dolls we owned as kids. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake provide voices. Loving (Nov 4) 1958. Interracial couple. Forbidden marriage. Violent racists. Hello, Oscars. Billy Lynns Long Halftime Walk (Nov. 11) Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) wants the film to be shown at 120 frames per second (the standard for digital projection is about 30 frames per second). So will it matter if its four times clearer and crisper than anything weve seen? Perhaps. Hopefully it will serve the story of an Iraq war hero honored at the Super Bowl well. Arrival (Nov. 11) Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner play scientists asked to chat with recently arrived space aliens. Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) tends to make pretty gutsy movies that refuse to sanitize harshness, and the trailers look fantastic. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (Nov. 18) Seventy years before Harry Potter gets to Hogwarts, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) chases magical creatures around 1926 New York City. Alternately known as J.K. Rowlings Quest To Keep Harry Potter Royalties Coming. Nocturnal Animals (Nov. 18) Fashion designer Tom Ford wowed us with A Single Man in 2009, so eager eyes will be on this movie about an art gallery owner (Amy Adams) taken aback by the violence of her ex-husbands (Jake Gyllenhaal) new novel, which feels all too real. Manchester By The Sea (Nov. 18) More awards bait that came out of Sundance this year, this time about a tormented man (Casey Affleck) who must deal with deep emotional issues concerning his ex-wife (Michelle Williams). Expect the acting here to be top notch. Allied (Nov. 23) Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, directed by Robert Zemeckis, and the story of a romance gone awry during World War II. Everything I just wrote makes this a mustsee surefire Oscar contender. Moana (Nov. 23) Its the latest from Disney Animation, whose recent movies include Frozen and Zootopia. Doesnt matter that its abou t a gir l s ailing across the ocean and the help she gets from a demi-god named Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson). Were in. Bad Santa 2 (Nov. 23) Billy Bob Thornton is back, swearing at little kids and stealing in this long-awaited sequel. Kathy Bates plays his mom, which seems perfect, and Christina Hendricks is the new love interest, which also seems perfect. La La Land (Dec. 2) Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) directs this musical about falling in love. In one sequence, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dance their way into the stars. I loved Whiplash, but this sounds cheesy. Office Christmas Party (Dec. 9) Every year theres a star-studded new Christmas comedy, and most years theyre terrible. Fingers crossed. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Dec. 16) Remember in Star Wars: A New Hope when they briefly mention stealing the plans for the Death Star? This movie, which is the beginning of the extended Star Wars universe, tells the story of how the plans were stolen. If you listen closing, you can hear Disney executives making the ka-ching! sound in their heads already. Passengers (Dec. 21) Ask most guys who theyd like to be stuck with for 90 years on a spaceship, and Jennifer Lawrence will be toward the top of the list. Ask most women who theyd like to be stuck with in the same circumstance, and Chris Pratt will be high on the list. But watching them stuck together? Yes, please!

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYYou cant pick your family, but you can pick your booksHow do you choose books? my brother asked me. I was on vacation, and wed just paid a visit to our favorite independent bookstore in Maine. He wasnt asking me for advice, I realized, he was trying to figure out how I operate in a bookstore: Why I go to certain shelves and not others. Why I pick the books I do. As with many things we do in life, we act without deliberate thought. (For example, I cant recall the last time I thought about the various steps involved in tying a shoelace.) In a bookstore, I just browse on instinct and intuition. So I had to stop and think about it. I was surprised hed asked. I realized that whatever I was doing didnt make sense to him. He was puzzled. Well, how do you choose? I asked him, turning the question back on him and trying to buy myself some time. Im looking for a specific book I want to buy, or I have certain authors I like, so I go to those sections to see if theyve written anything new, he explained. It struck me as such a stereotypical guy way to shop: have a goal, achieve the goal, finished. But thats my brother: logical (but also, thank goodness, patient). Me, I like browsing. I like finding what I didnt even know I was looking for: the unexpected, the surprise. The book that jumps out at me. Im a firm believer in serendipity. I typically go to sections that I know Im interested in: writing, art, music, fiction, biography, new fiction, new nonfiction, sale tables. I browse with a multiplicity of motives. Im looking for a good read. Im looking for a book that would be a good birthday or Christmas gift. Im searching for a book that might increase my knowledge in the arts. And Im always open to a title that might make a great article I could write about. And, like my brother, I look for new books by authors I already know and love (though its always wonderful to discover a new one). Its difficult to explain exactly what makes me pick one book over another. The blurbs dont really affect me, because I know authors ask their friends, or publishing houses get other authors in their stable to write one. I know that designing a catchy cover can be more marketing than art, though I sometimes question whether marketing people know what theyre doing. (If I see another cover with women sitting on the beach, looking out at the water, I think Im going to hurl it across the room.) If a cover looks too cute or like a romance novel, I generally wont even pick the book up to look at it. Ditto for guns and tanks and war scenes. And cookbooks. Though there are always exceptions to the rule. Ive been noticing a trend lately where lines from rock songs turn up as book titles. Unfortunately, the ones Ive read havent been as good as the songs, and I now find myself resenting the usurping of lyrics I love. What I generally do is turn to the first chapter and start reading the opening lines. That usually works to grab my interest or let me know if I like the authors voice. (Two exceptions to this are Anne Tyler and Alexander McCall Smith, who generally dont have spectacular openings. Theyre both sly writers, and reading their books is like falling in love slowly, until without even realizing it, youre sucked in.) I have a couple books on my bedside table I hope to get to soon. Heres the opening line of The Tumbling Turner Sisters by Juliette Fay: Nothing good comes from a knock in the middle of the night. Next lines: The windows rattled in their casings as someone banged on the front door. I roused myself from sleep, thinking that between the banging and the cold, the glass would surely break. As it turned out, mere broken glass wouldve been a blessing. And heres the opening sentence from another novel in the stack, My Mrs. Brown by William Norwich: Early one September not long ago, a rural woman with a secret grief traveled to New York City in pursuit of a dream, to buy the most beautiful and correct dress shed ever seen. And here are the opening lines of This is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live, a non-fiction book by Melody Warnick: At some point during my familys move from Texas to Virginia, the thought crossed my mind that I should have set fire to all our belongings rather than wrestle them into another moving truck. It was embarrassing, really, how much wed accumulated. Back in college, all my worlds possessions fit into a Subaru station wagon. A husband, two kids, and a million purchases later, our house was a clown car, disgorging a laughably steady stream of stuff. Four mattresses. Five bicycles. Fifteen chairs. A rolled-up Pottery Barn rug. Boxes and boxes of books. How was it possible that we owned all this? Wasnt a bonfire the more prudent course of action here? Much easier to torch everything and start from scratch. How can you resist a writer like that? Anyone who ever moved, whether across the country or down the block, can relate to that feeling. And describing her house as clown car disgorging a laughably steady stream of stuff what writing! No, I havent read the rest of This Is Where You Belong or the other books stacked beside my bed, so I cant tell you if these authors are able to keep the promise they make with their opening lines. I hope so. The good ones usually do. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com NILOO / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM

For the WHOLE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, ALL Afternoon and Sunset Cruises will be $25.00 +TAXThere are times when the winning play runs so contrary to normal practice that very few declarers would even think of it, much less make the play. Yet when the play is subsequently examined in the cold light of day, its validity cannot be denied. Consider this deal where West led the ace of diamonds against four spades. South ruffed, played the A-K of trumps, then led a club to the jack, losing to the queen. Back came the queen of hearts, whereupon the defenders collected three heart tricks for down one. Its not easy to see what declarer could have done to prevent this unlucky outcome, even if you look at all four hands. But the fact is that South could have guaranteed the contract at trick one. Instead of trumping Wests opening lead, he should have discarded a club on it. Lets say West leads another diamond. South ruffs, cashes the A-K of trumps and plays the A-K-J of clubs. If East produces the queen, South ruffs, returns to dummy with a trump and discards a heart on the club ten to make the contract. If East does not produce the queen of clubs, South discards a heart and achieves the same result even if West has the queen. Either way, declarer cant lose more than three tricks. There is no question that discarding a club at trick one is a play few declarers would think of. It simply runs too much against the grain. Nevertheless, there can be no denying that the club discard virtually assures a favo rable outcome, while trumping the ace of diamonds clearly jeopardizes the contract. By discarding at trick one, South makes sure that East, the dangerous opponent, can never gain the lead for a potential killing heart shift. From that point on, all roads lead directly to Rome.

C14 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESMorgan 1/2(Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones) A risk management consultant (Ms. Mara) goes to a remote location to assess the damage caused by a synthetic, human-like organism (Ms. TaylorJoy). Director Luke Scott (Ridley Scotts son) takes an intriguing sci-fi premise and allows it to devolve into a schlocky monster movie. Its insulting. Rated R.Hands of Stone (Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Ana de Armas) Based on a true story, boxer Roberto Duran (Mr. Ramirez) emerges from poverty in Panama to become a world champion. Solid performances and editing allow this part biopic/part boxing movie to be a thoroughly engaging drama. Rated R.Ben-Hur 1/2(Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman) At the time of Jesus Christ (Rodrigo Santoro), a Jewish prince (Mr. Huston) is forced into slavery by his adopted brother (Mr. Kebbell), who is a Roman soldier. The story drags and the performances do little to enliven the stilted dialog; two decent actions sequences are the lone saving grace. Rated PG-13.Hell or High Water 1/2 (Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges) A Texas Ranger (Mr. Bridges) tracks two bank-robbing brothers (Mr. Foster and Mr. Pine) in this superb neo-western. A great drama highlighted by fantastic writing and even better performances, its one of the best movies of the year. Rated R.Southside with You (Tika Sumpter, Parker Sawyers, Vanessa Bell Calloway) Heres the story of Barack and Michelle Obamas first date during a hot summer day in 1989. But only the locations are accurate; the dialog is fictionalized, which is a downer given the films inherent appeal. Combine that with low-budget production values and standard editing and the whole thing plays like a made-for-TV movie. Rated PG-13.Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Rebecca Ferguson) In 1944 New York City, wealthy socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Ms. Streep) aspires to be an opera singer in spite of her notable lack of ability. Ms. Streep and Mr. Grant are a formidable duo, but its director Stephen Frears (Philomena) striking just the right tone of laughing at Florence but with the movie that makes it all work. Rated PG-13.Suicide Squad 1/2(Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto) The worlds most dangerous criminals are given a reprieve from prison to fight a deadly witch (Cara Delevingne). Ms. Robbie steals the movie as Jokers (Mr. Leto) squeeze, Harley Quinn, and the action and soundtrack keep things popping but the story has numerous problems. Set in the same DC Comics universe as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Rated PG-13.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2016 C15 LATEST FILMSLife, AnimatedIs it worth $10? YesDisney animated movies are beloved by many, but perhaps no family loves them more than the Suskinds in Cape Cod, Mass. At the age of 3, Owen began to shy away from his surroundings and stopped communicating. His parents, Ron and Cornelia, soon learned their son was autistic. For years they thought hed never speak again, or be anywhere close to normal. Then magic happened: Through repeated viewings of Disneys animated movies, Owen slowly started to understand the world and break out of his shell. Life, Animated tells the true story of Owens journey and how he manages today, living on his own at 23 years old. Its already an award-winning documentary, so if you think it sounds too sweet for even a Disney movie, remember that sometimes truth trumps fiction. The majority of the film follows Owen, his parents and his brother, Walt, leading up to Owens high school graduation. Owen knows after graduation hes moving out (to an assisted living facility) and has to get a job (at a movie theater, naturally). Its his choice to leave, but he takes solace in knowing his girlfriend, Emily (also autistic), is moving to the same apartment complex. And he knows, deep down, that hes ready to be an adult. In addition to following Owen and the family in their present lives, director Roger Ross Williams uses archival footage, interviews, clips from Disney movies and original animation by artist MacGuff to articulate Owens struggle. Although the basics of autism are explained so the unfamiliar can grasp what the family is dealing with, the focus is always on triumph rather than hardship. This is important because it allows for a constantly positive vibe even when discussing difficult times, which in turn allows the film to be touching and inspiring rather than downtrodden and depressing. If theres a flaw here, its the slow start coupled with a lack of information regarding how Owen evolved throughout his teenage years. Mr. Williams freely juxtaposes moments and images of Owen as a child with Owen today, so he needs to include Owen as a teenager as well. Its a glaring omission that leaves the audience hanging regarding something viewers are bound to be curious about. That shortcoming aside, whats most fascinating about the film is its brutal honesty. Ron and Cornelia openly question themselves and how Owen will fare living on his own. Walt understands the burden of caring for his brother later in their lives; hes ready, but clearly not thrilled about the prospect. Owen himself endures a personal hardship that he struggles to understand, at which point the shortcomings of what you can learn from Disney animated movies comes to the fore. A lesser movie, and a lesser director, would not have handled these questions with such care and respect. But because Mr. Williams handles so much so well, Life, Animated is a movie you dont want to miss. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Director Roger Ross Williams won best director for U.S. documentaries for Life, Animated at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESBejewled porcelain pieces: Collectors favorites since the 1950s BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELThe jeweled Coalport porcelain of the late 19th century attracts buyers with its beauty and unfamiliar beading, but few know its history. Coalport porcelain was first made in England in 1795. In the late 19th century, a new type of porcelain vases, teaware, boxes and other ornamental wares was created. It was hand-decorated with small colored beads of glaze, as well as sections with simulated gems such as moonstones or emeralds. These pieces were very expensive when compared to the useful wares made before that time. In 1895 when Coalport started making the jeweled porcelains by a less expensive method, more pieces were sold. Collectors have favored these pieces since the 1950s, and prices are high today. In addition to the covered box pictured here, a two-handled shaped bowl with a cover sold for about $1,000 at the same sale. Q: When my husband was an orthopedic surgeon, a patient gave him Franklin Roosevelts cane. It has Franklin D. Roosevelt and a shield on one side of the silver handle and For President and 2 on the other side. Its slightly bent from pressure over the years. What can you tell me about it? A: Canes were a common political campaign item in the late 1800s and early 1900s, when they more fashion accessory than walking support. Canes like yours werent actually owned by Mr. Roosevelt, but were made to distribute during his first presidential campaign in 1932. The head of your cane is cast aluminum, not silver. Thousands of these canes were made before production stopped because Roosevelt didnt want to call attention to his physical limitations. The canes have been reproduced. Their value in good condition is about $75 to $100. Q: I recently found a receipt in an old book. It reads: U.S. Treasury, Minnesota War Finance Committee. It was for the purchase of a war bond and was to be mailed to the County War Finance Chairman. The cost of the bond was $18.75. My parents bought this bond in 1944, when I was about 10 months old. Im wondering how to go about redeeming it and how much its worth. A: The U.S. Treasury began issuing Series E bonds in 1942 to help finance World War II. The Minnesota War Finance Committee was formed in 1943 to promote the sale of war bonds in the state. U.S. Treasury bonds can be redeemed at some local banks or by mailing them to Treasury Retail Securities Site, P.O. Box 214, Minneapolis, MN 55480-0214. The problem is, you only have a receipt. Without the actual paper bond, there is nothing to redeem. rosedalepizza.com 239-325-96531427 Pine Ridge Road #105, NaplesTrue Neapolitan Pizza and Authentic Italian Food WEEKENDHAPPY HOURSaturday & Sunday 12:00pm:00pm Experience the Difference Good Taste Makes.MondayThursday 11:30am9:00pm Enjoy Half Price on House Wines, Domestic Beers and Select Appetizers!

It has turquoise jewels and a medallion. It sold at a Skinner auction in Boston earlier this year for $461. Q: Back in the day, many brides selected a pattern of sterling silver flatware. Today those sets of silver arent used and are a problem for the family who inherits the set of flatware. This is a dilemma I am facing. How do we get rid of the flatware? I have two sets of sterling silver flatware and additional items. How do I find a reliable and safe way to sell the flatware, either for the value of the set or for the value of the silver? I have a set of Meadow Rose by Wallace and a set of Oneidas Damask Rose. I also have miscellaneous pieces such as salt and pepper, candlesticks and cutlery. A: Sterling silver is always worth at least the meltdown value, and there are shops that buy silver and gold to melt down. But you also can sell silver flatware to a matching service. Many are listed online. Search for matching service silver or matching service silver plate. Expect to get about half what it will sell for because dealers have to make a profit. Wallace introduced Meadow Rose pattern in 1907. It sells for more than Oneidas Damask Rose, which was first made in 1946. Monograms lower the price. Tip: Plastic furniture from the 1950s often scratches. A good polishing with automobile wax might help cover the blemishes.

It certainly wont take me very long to go back. My Burnt Ends Sandwich was piled high with morsels from the point end of a whole smoked brisket. The ends are trimmed of fat, massaged with more dry rub and then smoked for a couple of more hours, resulting in a tasty bit of char or bark that on each tender chunk. Trust me, theres nothing burnt and everything delicious about it. My sides of potato salad and baked beans were equally yummy, as was the Hot Chile Chocolate Chip Cookie that I ordered just because I had to try it. Like the rest of my meal, it didnt disappoint.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Blueberrys, 3350 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 430-0700 Looking for a hearty meal that you need not get dressed up or pay dearly for? Check out this welcoming dinerstyle establishment where the friendly service staff delivers large steaming platters of well-prepared down-home food. Breakfast is a big deal here and a meal we found satisfying as did the rest of the capacity crowd on a Sunday morning. While you can order a fruit plate with cottage cheese or a virtuous bowl of oatmeal, thats not what most customers are after. Blueberry pancakes were a good choice, although Id recommend syrup in lieu of the runny blueberry compote served with them. A Santa Fe omelet had a tasty blend of cilantro, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and Jack cheese within and a touch of salsa on the side. Choose toast or pancakes plus potatoes, grits, sliced tomatoes or fruit to go with your eggs. I liked the plain butt ermilk pancake and, once sufficiently butter ed and salted, the grits. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2014 Dougs Seafood, 3411 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-1902 The closest youre likely to come to a true Maine lobster roll in Southwest Florida is served at this small seafood market and caf founded by a lobstering family from Maine. Prepared food includes cold and warm lobster rolls; crab and shrimp rolls; lobster, shrimp or crab wraps; and fish tacos. A steam table holds trays of chowders, bisques and lobster macaroni and cheese. You order at the counter and they quickly deliver to tables, so theres not much on which to base a service rating. Sandwiches come on plain white plates with a bag of chips and a cup of cole slaw. The lobster rolls come in two sizes, both of which are overstuffed with succulent, sweet shellfish without fillers or seasonings. Soft drinks served. Food: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 U.S. 41, Naples; 631-5954 The Peruvian food conjured up by chef/owner Rafael Rottiers is so good no one minded traveling to Golden Gate for it, but now hes opened a stylish Naples establishment as well. The second Incas has an ambience similar to the original, with warm earth tones and Peruvian art. And the food is equally stellar. A Piscojito (made with Peruvian pisco liquor) goes well with any of the 11 varieties of ceviche and seven types of tiradito (a Peruvian style sashimi). The Mar y Tierra was a luscious blend of octopus, shrimp, aji limon (a Peruvian pepper), spices, tiger milk, crab, potato and corn. Sushi rolls one with tuna pepper and sesame oil, the other built around barbecued tenderloin were delicious, too. Mancora sea bass with quinoa, scallops, mussels and clams tasted as good as it looked. A 10-ounce tenderloin with spicy red sauce and tri-colored potatoes will satisfy any carnivore. Dont skip dessert; have whatever sweet features the caramel-flavored lucama fruit. Food: Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed December 2014 Rumba Cuban Cafe, 1265 AirportPulling Road; 659-2996 The former Fernandez the Bulls southerly location is in good hands with Chef Jorge Reyes, who used to work there, at the helm. His family infuses Rumba with the same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. And the foods still great, too. Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips (long, crisp plantain strips served with well-seasoned ground beef) are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans. For dessert? You cant go wrong with flan or tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 TAG The American Gastropub, Coconut Point, 23161 Village Shops Way, Estero; 949-4300 The gastropub tag implies ampedup pub food in a casual but stylish setting, with craft beverages and reasonable prices. TAG delivers most of that but could be more consistent. A sampling of trendy deviled eggs with fancy toppings revealed garnishes that were just too subtle to achieve the wow factor that can elevate these homey classics in the right hands. We were more impressed with the Prince Edward Island mussels steamed in beer broth seasoned with oranges and coriander and with ground and sliced chorizo tossed in. The combination of sweet fruit and warm spices worked well with the abundant shellfish. A basic burger was elevated by yummy bacon jam, and a salmon entre was perfectly cooked and nicely paired with succotash. Root beer-braised short ribs were impressively tender, but the johnnycakes served underneath were tough, dry and mealy (as was the crust of a deconstructed apple pie stuffed into a pint canning jar).

CUISINE REVIEWThai Thai Noodle bar packs a lot of great food into a little spaceSome restaurants remain the same for years and years. Others seem to change hands with the seasons. Though some of the ever-changing spots seem as if they are situated on sacred burial grounds and are doomed to failure, once in a while a restaurateur finds the magical combination of great food and service that pleases the public and makes the place a success. I am hoping thats the case for Thai Thai Noodle Bar, which has succeeded Benja Sushi, which followed Sumo Sushi Sake Bar in a little storefront next to CenturyLink just off Airport-Pulling Road and Naples Boulevard. Both of its predecessors were good, but Thai Thai is exceptional. And it offers something the other two didnt: big bowls of hearty soup filled with noodles, vegetables and a variety of meats or seafood. The current management took over the restaurant about eight months ago. It still looks pretty much as I remember it from the Benja days: A long sushi bar with little blue lights just under the counter and tall silver chairs that match those at lower levels for the regular tables dominates the room. In fact, the Benja Sushi signs still adorn the outside of the building. Theres still a convenient drive-through window that opens behind the sushi bar. We saw a couple of people stop by to pick up takeout orders there. The one addition we noticed was a large screen in the main area of the dining room showing videos of the preparation of a dizzying area of luscious-looking Thai street foods. The service staff was exceptionally friendly and warm. The woman who seated us and did most of the serving came by to see if we needed guidance as we pondered the vast menu. She made sure we had beverages throughout the meal, checked to make sure each course was to our liking and invited us to come back. That is a certainty. Everything we ate here was terrific. For those considering a visit, let me warn you that although the restaurant is on the small side, the menu is anything but. There are appetizers, sushi appetizers, salads, soups, Japanese grilled entrees, Thai specialty entrees, bento boxes (lunch and dinner versions), sushi and sushi dinners and the star of the show here: 19 variations of Thai noodle soup. At lunch, theres also dim sum. Whats Thai noodle soup? Its a lot like Vietnamese pho, featuring a well-seasoned broth in which float an assortment of vegetables, meats and noodles. I selected the gyo moo daeng ($12.95) with roasted pork, wontons, Chinese kale, cabbage, scallions and bits of fried garlic in a savory broth redolent with the aforementioned garlic as well as a medley of spices. The bowl was the size most of us use for serving, but this is an entre portion so it makes sense for it to be oversized. There are versions with beef, chicken and seafood as well, and you can change out the noodles for any of four varieties for a $2 charge. Although condiments including chili powder, sugar, ground chili vinegar and chili fish sauces are brought to the table, I didnt think the soup required any enhancements. The vegetables were tender-crisp, the pork was flavorful and tender and the wontons worked well with everything else (better, I think, than the mounds of thin noodles I watched other diners wrestling with in their bowls). The fresh spring rolls ($7.95) came in soft wrappers containing good-sized shrimp along with crunchy cucumber, lettuce and herbs. The rolls had lots of flavor on their own but were even better when dipped into either the sweet chili sauce or warm peanut sauce that accompanied them. From the plethora of sushi rolls, we tried the red dragon ($13.95), an inspired combination of shrimp tempura, asparagus and masago with scallions and avocado topped with tuna, ell sauce and spicy mayo. One noteworthy element of the sushi menu is that the kitchen uses a variety of crabs and indicates which type is included in each roll, including when it is imitation crab. While I hunkered down over my noodle bowl, my companion enjoyed jumbo shrimp with garlic sauce ($20.95), an entre from the Thai special dishes. The shrimp were indeed jumbos, cooked just right and topped with a lively brown sauce that contained a generous amount of garlic and a hint of heat. Broccoli, snow peas, baby corn and carrots accompanied the shrimp and a side of rice completed the dish. Thai Thai does have desserts Thai doughnuts, fried ice cream, fried bananas with ice cream but Ill leave it to you to explore that course on your own. We were stuffed, even though I took home about half of my soup for what was a satisfying lunch the following day. From start to finish, this was a great meal served by a staff that obviously wants to please its customers. Yes, there are plenty of Thai and sushi places in these parts. But this one is well worth trying.

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 mid-August, the construction on our first tower has reached the penthouse floor, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. 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 ceilings in living areas, and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. Our kitchens feature an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. The first residential high-rise tower at Kalea Bay will be completed in the summer of next year. However, it wont be the only building on-site to reach that milestone. Currently, Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also under construction and slated to be completed around the same timeframe, said Wilson. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

Traveling the world and incorporating sacred geometry to achieve zen and balance in interior design, Ms. Lovetto opens up to Luxe Livings Linda Donnelly about the roots of her design philosophy. Q. Please tell our readers a bit about your background. How long have you been a designer, and where did you go to school? A. Well, Im a rare Neapolitan, born and raised in Naples with my parents and two sisters. After I went through the local school system and graduated from Naples High, my parents offered me a choice: a car or a trip to Europe. I took the trip, and it changed my life. I traveled all over Europe for three weeks and was moved and inspired by the culture steeped in the most fascinating history, architecture and art. I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a designer. In fact, when my sisters and I were growing up, my mother would enlist us to redecorate the house, simply by rearranging the furniture and artwork. We didnt have a large budget, but we had imagination and creativity. During a fateful career day in high school, I heard a local professional designer speak and I knew at that precise moment, thats what Im going to do with my life. I went to design school and never looked back or hesitated to define myself in that way.SEE Q&A, PAGE 16 creates beautiful, balanced, harmonious spaces for her design clients Antique Asian chairs and an upholstered bench provide seating at the dining table with a custom glass top. Chandelier and sconces are from the Altar Collection by Kevin Reilly for Holly Hunt. The floor-to-ceiling window is covered with a natural grass shade from Conrad.

6 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comMany of us move a handful of times in our lives but then come to a crossroads at which we decide Enough. When that time came for this retired tech executive and his wife most recently from the tony Buckhead area of Atlanta, they found their final perfect full-time residence at La Ciel in Naples and hired Nan Wright of Wright Interior Group to redesign and transform it. One design challenge was the awkward compartmentalized spaces throughout the residence. Ms. Wright turned to Paragon General Contracting amazing magicians, she says in retrospect who told her to go ahead and design a floor plan placing everything wherever we wanted it, and they would make it work (and they did, skillfully moving drains and waste lines and helping reconfigure most of the living spaces). Ms. Wright started her assignment by flying to Atlanta to help the couple decide which of their existing furnishings would make sense for the transition and how they could best be incorporated into the new design. Keeping some of their cherished furniture and heirlooms was important to them, so Ms. Wright paid keen attention to their wishes and even had several pieces reupholstered to blend seamlessly with new furniture items. According to the husband, Nan and her team were extremely professional and thorough, which was difficult, as we were relocating from a larger home. Not only that, he adds, the condos floorto-ceiling windows and beach/park/bay views on every front meant they had to migrate to more of a transitional/ coastal design approach while still capturing the things they love about classic traditional style. Another design challenge was the age-old issue many designers have when working with a couple: designing for the sexes. Men and women often like different styles, contrasting color palettes, Ms. Wright says. And this couple was no exception. The husbands style is more transitional and contemporary, while the wife, who has a degree in art history and loves traditional architecture and furnishings, has a more decidedly classic aesthetic. Navigating the process most delicately, MAKEOVERLight and brightA remodeled condo now fit for a couples full-time residence COURTESY PHOTOSSEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 8 Before Nan WrightTop: Custom bedding with imported embroidered fabrics adds to the sense of a luxurious retreat in the after master bedroom.

Ms. Wright and her design associate, Sarah Bell, set about to create a warm and inviting environment that feels not only open and expansive, but cozy and intimate at the same time. Utilizing a soft gray, gold and white color scheme, we balanced clean lines with elegant crystal details to satisfy both the husband and wife, Ms. Wright says. Ms. Bell designed all the millwork, built-ins and custom furniture to maximize every inch of storage and display space for the clients treasures from around the world. They incorporated state-of-the-art LED rope lighting to create a unique ambience determined by the use of the space at any given time. According to Ms. Bell, The design of the living room ceiling is a mix of geometric and classic symmetry. The beam design and lighting is modern, while the crown molding is traditional in style, satisfying both client aesthetic preferences. Designing a dramatic architectural detail when there is none is rewarding, especially when the collective client is thrilled with the end result. Now happy ensconced in their final perfect full-time home, the couple couldnt be happier. Nan led us through this journey with care and professionalism and we are delighted with the results, concludes the husband.

miniums, single-family homes and entire communities to draw even more people to this charming slice of paradise. One of the most interesting is Naples Square in the heart of the Fifth Avenue/ Tin City/Tamiami Trail trifecta, at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road. Unlike most gated communities, this Ronto Group project begs to be explored and even has a central road open to the public. Vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic flows easily from 10th Street to Bayfront on a redesigned and beautifully landscaped segment of Third Avenue South between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road within the Naples Square community. This provides a welcomed sense of connectivity to the downtown Naples area. Recently completed fountains at each of Naples Squares signature roundabouts enhance the otherworldly effect of the inspired landscape design by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design. The design evokes feelings of familiarity and a sense of place rarely found when walking through downtown building corridors. The U-shaped buildings within Naples Square are situated with their open ends facing one another. The juxtaposition of the buildings allowed architect Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture & Planning to create amenity courtyards over each buildings parking level and to design residences with long-range internal courtyard views. The courtyards feature a resortstyle heated swimming pool and spa, sundeck, pavilion bar with gas grills and a gas fire table with seating. Each building will have its own pool and clubroom. Several model residences are currently open. Phase I is sold out, only 15 residences remain in Phase II and reservations are being accepted for Phase III.

Q: What are the most inspiring trips you have made in your lifetime that influence your design aesthetic? A: That first trip after high school was certainly a mind-expanding experience, but two trips later in my life were really influential as well. Trekking across Tibet for three weeks, seeing every monastery and camping through the countryside, had a profound impact on me spiritually and emotionally. A very zen, calm, peaceful vernacular developed in my work. Then for my honeymoon, it was off to China and Indonesia for three weeks. Hong Kong and Bali reinforced my love and appreciation for Chinese and Indonesian antiques and architecture. The simplicity of the culture has greatly influenced my design aesthetic. Q: Describe the process for you when you meet with a client for the first time. What types of questions do you ask, and how do you get the project started? A: I actually have an extensive client questionnaire that I use to get the conversation started. I call it The Four Fs the Feeling, the Function, the Form and the Formalities. It starts out with fairly broad questions and then gets into the nitty-gritty of their daily lives. I generally give them the questionnaire at the start; its meant to stimulate their minds and further our conversations, and to encourage them to think about things they generally dont think about Its a starting point. I will then look over the answers. Q: What do you love most about your career/profession? A: I love creating beauty in all its forms. I design jewelry, I design homes. In everything I do, I am motivated to lift up the everyday into something more refined and inspired. And beyond that, it has to be highly functional. I am at my core a space planner its my true passion. I will sit at my drafting table for hours moving walls and furnishings, creating traffic patterns and details within interior spaces until just the right solution evolves. I call that moment the luxury of certainty. Im highly influenced by Vashtu, the most ancient Indian art and science of creating interior spaces and buildings. Its the precursor to the Chinese philosophy of feng shui. These centuries-old Sanskrit literary documents focus on sacred geometry and how the dimensions of space directly affect the human psyche. There is a science beyond picking pretty things. I think my clients respond most to that within my work, and it gives me tremendous satisfaction knowing that I have created a space for them that is personal, and yet transcends the boundaries of vision.

BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comThe shower door company with the playful tagline, Want to see more? was founded by a spirited family named Daubmann with a clear vision of how to update, refresh and add value to todays bathroom. Bill Daubmann, his wife, Donna, and son Douglas Daubmann opened their first location in September 2003 in North Naples. Today, MY Shower Door has five showrooms in Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa and St. Petersburg and adds Orlando to the mix in the near future. Additionally, the companys North American corporate office in Fort Myers serves its distribution network into many U.S. states and Canada. Logistics aside, this is a company that has a very loyal following of customers who rave about its frameless shower doors, its helpful service staff and its pleasant, professional installers. The attention of Gov. Rick Scott has even been showered (pun intended) on the family-owned business. Gov. Scott just last month congratulated MY Shower Door on creating new jobs for local Floridians with its upcoming sixth location and with D3 Glass, its state-of-the-art fabricating and tempering facility supplying glass not only to all the MY Shower Door locations, but also to other glass and glazing contractors. In 2015, D3 Glass produced all of the interior glass for the Hertz Corp. Global Headquarters in Estero, for the Inn on Fifth in Naples and for Disneys Grand Floridian Villas and Contemporary Hotel Executive Suites. While MY Shower Door has long been known as a leader in frameless shower enclosures, the Daubmanns have branched out with D3 Glass and with an Architectural Division that sells and installs glass office partitions, heavy glass wine closets and thick glass stair railing systems. They now have the distinction of a statewide certified glass and glazing contractor. Our specialty is incredible customer service mixed with meticulous installations, the elder Mr. Daubmann says. The training that we provide to our staff is second to none in the glass industry. Many glazers are very good at big commercial projects, which are generally new construction, but we specialize in working in residences that are already occupied. Most general contractors that hire us cannot believe how clean and efficient we are. For the last eight consecutive years, the company has garnered numerous local awards and distinctions, and on a national level was voted Best Shower Door in the U.S. by Glass Magazine, the industrys top trade publication. This family has revolutionized the design, installation and marketing of its products and is a great first stop in your hunt for the perfect shower.
