Sponsored by Stephanie Vick, Administrator Florida Dept. of Health Collier County COMMENTARYTender memory begs question: If you dont like candidates, why vote?Ive been thinking a lot about Fay Joyce as of late. Fay was one of the great political reporters of my generation. I got to know her when we both worked at the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times). In 1980, Fay, who had joined the Times in 1977, had risen to become the papers political editor. I had come to the Times in late 1978 as a reporter and spent the better part of 1980 as one of the writers assigned to cover the presidential contest between Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. About two weeks before Election Day, I had returned to St. Petersburg after an extended stint on the road with Reagan. Fay and I went out for a long lunch. I was bone tired and disillusioned, and in a moment of fatigue-induced candor admitted to Fay that, after seeing Reagan and Carter close up, I had made a decision: I could not vote for either man. Reagan, in my estimation, was shallow, distracted and overly scripted. The incumbent Carter, I continued, seemed overmatched for the job and gratingly pious. I went on to say that while voting is indeed a sacred duty, I felt I had done my part for democracy by giving readers a pretty good idea of the dismal choice that faced them. Fay, a contrarian of the highest order, did not seem particularly shocked or upset by anything I said, adding that while she would vote, she shared my reservations concerning the candidates. Not long after this lunch, Fay wrote a column and in that piece let drop that an unnamed colleague who covered politics intended to withhold his vote. The reaction to this seemingly innocuous piece of information was unexpectedly ferocious. Readers swamped Fay with letters denouncing the unnamed journalistic apostate who was abdicating his civic responsibility. The top editors at the Times were also in high dudgeon. At least one column was written condemning any Times reporter or editor who did not exercise his or her franchise. Fay was pressed by the papers pooh-bahs to reveal the identity of her nonvoting coworker. In typical Fay Joyce fashion, she told them no way, although suspicion already had fallen heavily on yours truly. Jesus, Fay told me later after the brouhaha had quieted a bit, where is it written in stone that you have to vote for someone you find distasteful or unqualified? Thirty-six years after this teapot tempest, the thought of not voting in a presidential election seems not quite so heretical Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have seen to that.Large numbers of Americans will either hold their noses and vote or stay away from the polling place altogether. I cannot recall a time when I have heard so many people say they are manifestly unenthusiastic about the choices for president.I can only imagine what Fay would make of the presidential election of 2016. From St. Petersburg, she went on to Harvard University as a Nieman Fellow and finally to The New York Times, where she quickly became one of the top national political correspondents.Fay was a superb stylist who was unsparing in her assessments, and she had a fine eye for the telling detail that politicians and candidates so often despise. She once riled teetotaler Jimmy Carter to no end when she reported that his mother the redoubtable Miss Lillian drank bourbon disguised as iced tea at a public luncheon. Carters people pushed back, insisting that it was indeed tea in Miss Lillians glass. But, as was pointed out later, Fay had spent considerable time covering the Georgia Legislature while on the staff of The Atlanta Constitution and thus was eminently capable of distinguishing tea from bourbon. Fay adhered to the dictum that the only way a reporter should look at a politician is down. Brother, she would have had a field day writing about Trump and Clinton. But that was not to be. She died tragically and suddenly in 1985 at the age of 36.The news media has not performed well during this presidential campaign the reasons being too numerous to list in this limited space. Had she lived to experience this sorry spectacle, Fay surely would be critiquing her fellow journalists as rigorously as the candidates. I have little doubt that were she living, Fay would vote in this election. And Im certain I know who her favored candidate would be. Am I voting in 2016? I doubt that many people actually care and its really nobodys business, but lets just say that my forthrightness way back in 1980 taught me a lesson. Im keeping my mouth shut this time around. Im comforted by the thought that Fay Joyce would understand. Roger Williams column will return next week. bill CORNWELLbcornwell@floridaweekly.com

It is just one of multiple barriers women face in overcoming gender inequality. But we do know the root of its cause: occupational segregation of women in the workforce. It is the fundamental reason the wage gap exists and persists for women workers. The practice survives, even though it is economically inefficient; and it deprives the labor force of women fully capable of performing in occupation where they are grossly under-represented. The lesser value associated with the worth of womens work is a downstream derivative of questioning whether women should participate in the workforce at all. The question is now and has long been a moot issue. Today, about 66 million women are employed in the U.S., nearly three-fourths of them in fulltime jobs. Their numbers nearly equal those of men in the workforce. There is no going back. Women are a critical part of the American economy. When women first entered the labor market, only jobs thought suitable were available. Little was leftover of genuine utility to their economic advancement. Women wore these constraints like a whale-bone corset. Womens social, religious and cultural oppression consigned them to inferiority. To breathe freely and without contrivance was not in Gods design Thus men went through one door for employment and women through another, assuming women were welcome to enter. The subtraction was disastrous, denying women opportunity in a majority of occupations recruiting large numbers of workers. It reduced their employment prospects to almost nil, and the sorry rate of womens pay was calculated accordingly. The dubious math required little explanation. The one oft given was that women simply did have the stamina, strength, temperament, intellectual capacity and/or qualifications to perform the jobs men did. The argument was a legacy from the historical era when men were men and women were their subordinates. This belief still works for an amazing number of people. The concept of male superiority over women has never gone completely out of style. Today, you might hear this same truthiness to oppose women becoming steelworkers, software engineers or CEOs of major corporations. It has a built-in quaintness to it, conjuring up the era when women as lawmakers, doctors, lawyers, professors, accountants, business owners, or even as clerks or secretaries inhabited the same biased territory. Back then, people who thought otherwise were challenged and ridiculed, too. Occupational segregation of women in the workforce remains one of the most salient features of the U.S. Labor market. Studies indicate women made substantial progress in the 0s and s integrating previously majority-male occupations. But the Institute for Womens Policy Research says progress has completely stalled since the mid-s. The ladies of 150 years ago would be terribly disappointed by this news. Even back then, their antennae were up about the wage gap characterizing womens work. They knew women were being shortchanged. The issue found traction during Abraham Lincolns presidency. All the gifted young men were off to war, leaving a paucity of available workers to administrate the war effort. In 1861, the Hon. Salmon P. Chase, Lincolns secretary of the treasury, was the first to recruit women as government clerks in the nations capital, a decision he alluded to as one of the most important acts of his life. The experiment proved a great success. Nonetheless, women were only paid at the rate of $50 a month one-half the lowest price paid to any male clerk.The wage disparity caught Congress notice. It finally acted in 1866 to increase the womens salary to $900 a year. The gesture was less than half of loaf. The men doing the same work were compensated across four different pay grades, earning respectively $1,000, $1,400, $1,600, and $1,800 a year. Mrs. Fitzgerald, the most senior and qualified expert among those performing the work, challenged her inequitable rate of pay. To resolve the issue, she was required to take an examination testing her expertise. She was ambushed with questions foreign to her profession. Failing to answer correctly, she was denied an increase in pay. Mrs. Fitzgerald was Lilly Ledbetter before there was a Lilly Ledbetter. Ms. Ledbetter is the Alabama production worker who filed an equal-pay lawsuit in 1998 upon discovering her employer had, for years, paid her less than her male counterparts. She lost her case. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the statute of limitations on filing her claim had expired. The 5-4 decision hinged on determination of the date when the clock started ticking on the deadline for Ms. Ledbetter to file her claim. The court determined it was the date her employer decided to discriminate, not on the date of her last paycheck. Because Ms. Ledbetters employer didnt alert her as to the date of his decision to do her wrong, she went home empty-handed. It was another Mrs. Fitzgerald moment. But we all know who was right. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia. She writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy, earning national recognition for her leadership in the charitable sector. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter.

Look, she can open a pickle jar! That feels so long ago now that her campaign has admitted that she was indeed hiding something about her health a pneumonia diagnosis.Some of the diagnoses from afar of Hillarys purported illnesses have been elaborate fantasies, and she might have really been fit as a fiddle when she opened the famous pickle jar. But through her secretive handling of her pneumonia, she has, once again, shown how it never pays to trust a Clinton. Bill and Hillary have a way of treating the credibility of their allies as a disposable commodity, in this case including the credibility of a protective media. The press had worked itself into a lather about the illegitimacy of inquiries into Hillarys health. They were repaid by Clinton leaving reporters behind without notice at the Sept. 11 memorial; nearly collapsing when she was out of their view (the incident was captured on video by a bystander); giving them a wave and a misleading feeling great outside of Chelsea Clintons apartment, where she had gone to recover; and leaving them behind yet again to go to her home in Chappaqua and see a doctor. Her campaign initially said Hillary overheat ed (on a gorgeous and mild morning in New York City). Can happen to anyone, right? Well, yes and especially someone walking around with a case of pneumonia. It is a cliche in the press to say that Hillary hurts herself by not being more transparent. But cover-ups have their advantages. If things had bounced differently, Bill Clinton might have been able to get away with denying his affair with Monica Lewinsky; we might never have learned of Hillarys private server; and Hillarys pneumonia diagnosis might have been kept under wraps, too. Surely, the public had a right to know. Millions of people get pneumonia every year, and often it is easily treatable, yet the condition is serious enough that Hillarys doctor told her to scale back her campaign schedule. The public interest in disclosure took a back seat to Hillarys interest in not giving any more fodder to critics questioning her vigor.Clinton has now been caught being dishonest about an area where public skepticism is most justified. Politicians lying about or concealing health problems is a common feature of every political system the world over, democratic or totalitarian. Hillary would do well to adopt an uncharacteristic policy of complete transparency about her health records and perform the rest of the way without a disruption more serious than a stray sneeze.Even if she does, the handling of her pneumonia is a preview of how a second Clinton White House would operate. If shes elected president, inevitably, some outlandish allegation will arise. The Clintons and their defenders will dismiss it as a hateful fantasy, before when all other options are exhausted admitting its actually true. This is the Clinton pattern over a couple of decades of stoking, and validating, their critics distrust.

ROOTED IN NAPLESMeet Chuck, the giving tree at Naples Botanical GardenAh Luk Mas (Siberia): The spirits of large trees who accept small gifts of coins, scarves and ribbons and bestow the givers with good luck in return. Dont take disrespect lightly. Apple Tree Man (England): The spirit of the oldest tree in an apple orchard and keeper of the crops fertility. Offers buried treasure to people who bless the trees with the last cup of cider. Diwata (Phillipines): Beautiful and ageless tree spirits that live primarily in large trees like the acacia and can be called on for crop growth, health and fortune. Not to be crossed, occasionally enjoy smiting. Ghillie Dhu (Scotland): The wild and shy guardian of trees who offers special protection to children. Chuck (Naples Botanical Garden): A friendly, pastel-arrayed royal poinciana tree who lives in the Smith Childrens Garden and loves sharing corny jokes. His supply is running low and he hopes someone will supply him with more. Transplanted from another spot on the garden property, Chuck was so named in honor of Charles Berger, a board president who was a key player in the planning stages of the gardens renovation/expansion. Mr. Berger died in 2008 without seeing the finished garden. In his memory, Chuck became the centerpiece in the childrens play area, donning pastel striped socks in Mr. Bergers honor. In addition to sharing corny jokes, Chuck enjoys receiving emails. Its a gathering point in our garden, and since he already had a name, why shouldnt we give him and email address so he can get tree-mail, says Britt Patterson-Weber, manager of youth programs at the garden. Apparently, Chucks not the only person there who likes corny jokes. Despite his output of riddles, jokes and puns usually posted on his trunk Chuck hasnt received very many in return. Gordy, a young visitor from Ohio, is so far the only person to have tickled Chucks funny bone with this gem: What did the alien say to the flower? Take me to your weeder! After finding numerous touching messages on a wishing tree during the 2012 Night Lights in the Garden holiday celebration, garden staff thought perhaps visitors throughout the year might like to interact with Chuck in a similar way. But so far, all his interactions are one-sided. We know very little about Chuck. Is he a beneficent sprite like the ones listed above? Im coming to think of him as a mix between the jovial Apple Tree Man and the kids patron Ghillie Dhu, with a good dose of Tom Hanks affability mixed in. Naples Botanical Garden is closed for maintenance until Saturday, Oct. 1, so perhaps Chuck is feeling extra lonely without the usual horde of ankle-biters swarming his trunk. Perhaps a joke or two would help the time pass more quickly? Send your favorite to chuck@ naplesgarden.org. Lindsey Nesmith knows that any tree that likes wearing pastel-striped socks must be good company. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTO While visiting from Ohio, young Gordy shared a favorite joke with Chuck at Naples Botanical Garden.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYto face, mano a mano, phony smile to phony smile, sound bite to sound bite, with nothing separating them but poor, defenseless Lester Holt, the NBC News anchor who will serve as moderator, referee and designated punching bag. If he does what he should do and the betting is that he does Holt, a consummate professional, will anger Republicans and Democrats alike. Talk about a thankless job. Is America ready for its rendezvous with debate destiny? You bet we are. Admit it. You cant wait. The confrontation between the two most-disliked and distrusted presidential candidates ever is the political equivalent of Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? with Donald and Hillary assuming the roles of George and Martha in what promises to be a nasty, unsparing and viciously entertaining evening. This is reality television howling on a cosmic scale. The viewership will likely be record setting, if the ratings of the presidential primary debates are any guide. In August, the first Republican debate was seen by 24 million viewers, making it the highest-rated non-sports event in cable television history, according to The New York Times. Presidential debates ... draw enormous ratings ... far greater than the 21 million average for Sunday Night Football games, the highest rated regular programming in television, The Times reported. The first presidential debate in the 2012 election drew around 70 million viewers. Look for this debate to blow past that 70 million number. Way past. This is one of those rare moments in the political history of our republic that transcends party affiliation, civic awareness and, perhaps, even functional literacy. Those who dont know a Republican from a rutabaga or a Democrat from a doughnut will tune in. The tempestuous Trump might describe the happening as huuuge but that designation barely scratches the surface. This is biblical, baby. With apologies to the Book of Isaiah, Debate Night 2016 will be the time when fans of Kim Kardashian lie down with devotees of Charlie Rose. We have not seen the like of this before, and we may never see it again. MANY AMERICANS WRONGLY ASSUME THAT general-election presidential debates are a longstanding tradition. They are not. The first took place on Sept. 26, 1960 (56 years to the day before the initial Trump-Clinton debate) between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Much of this misunderstanding can be laid to the seven debates in 1858 between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. These debates involved a race for the U.S. Senate, not the presidency, although two years later both men were candidates for the nations highest office. To this day, many of us mistakenly think the Lincoln-Douglas debates were for the White House. We have a notion that American political figures were always debating each other, Fergus Bordewich, writer, historian and author of Americas Great Debate, said in a telephone interview. Actually, presidential candidates were reclusive deep into the 19th century. Mostly, candidates back then relied on surrogates to speak on their behalf. The Lincoln-Douglas debates gained renown for several reasons. The principal issue debated slavery was epic. Both Lincoln and Douglas were accomplished orators, and technology came into play for the first time, ensuring that the debates received widespread attention. In 1858, innovation was turning what would otherwise have been a local contest into one followed from Mississippi to Maine, Bordewich wrote in an article that appeared in Smithsonian Magazine. Stenographers trained in shorthand recorded the candidates words. Halfway through each debate, runners were handed the stenographers notes; they raced for the next train to Chicago, converting shorthand into text during the journey and producing a transcript ready to be typeset and telegraphed to the rest of the country as soon as it arrived. Lincoln-Douglas was notable for the elevated level of oratory employed a skill in short supply these days. In that sense, the debates were emblematic of the times. The great political men of (that era) were indeed great debaters and orators, said Bordewich. Their debates read like literature. But lest anyone swoon excessively over the good old days of political discourse, Bordewich said there was a darker side to the Lincoln-Douglas encounters. What is less well-known, however, is that those debates were also characterized by substantial amounts of pandering, baseless accusation, outright racism and what we now call spin, he wrote in his Smithsonian piece. Technology, in the form of television, proved to be influential in the 1960 presidential debates especially the first one. The camera was famously kind to the youthful Kennedy, who appeared tanned, measured, calm and presidential. Nixon who was ill from a leg infection and poorly prepared on top of that came across on screen as a petty thief being grilled by cops under a hot light in a windowless room down PREVIOUS PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES GRAPPLEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSThe second of the four Kennedy and Nixon debates took place at WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 7, 1960.

Stephen Douglas, the Democratic Party candidate.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 NEWS A9at the station house. He was pale (having refused makeup), shifty-eyed, soaked in perspiration and defensive. Tellingly, later polls revealed that those who did not actually see the debate but listened to it on radio thought Nixon got the better of his Democratic opponent. Despite the enormous impact of the Kennedy-Nixon debates, there would not be another presidential debate until 1976. Lyndon Johnson chose not to engage Barry Goldwater in 1964. Nixon still reeling from the debacle of 1960 disdained debates in 1968 and 1972. In 1976, the debates began anew. President Gerald Ford faced Democratic challenger Jimmy Carter. Yet again, the debate would prove to be a significant factor in the subsequent election. In response to a routine question, Ford gave this jaw-dropping response: There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe, and there never will be under a Ford administration. Fords inexplicable gaffe, coupled with his controversial pardon of Richard Nixon, went a long way toward handing the White House to Carter, who four years later would run into troubles of his own during a debate with Ronald Reagan. Given the deification that has attended Reagan in the intervening years, the memory of the substantial challenges he faced in his race against President Carter in 1980 has faded. During the campaign, the 69-year-old former California governor was portrayed as an aged amiable dunce who held radically conservative beliefs and who could not be trusted with the nuclear codes. In his debate with President Carter, Reagan successfully addressed the criticisms leveled against him. Instead of Barry Goldwater incarnate, Reagan came across as genial and trustworthy. He used his grandfatherly charm to deflect legitimate concerns without actually addressing them. When Carter ridiculed Reagan for his longstanding opposition to Medicare and Social Security, the Republican candidate merely shook his head, chuckled and said, There you go again. Four years later, Reagans age (73 by then) was even more of an issue, and there were serious doubts about the possible erosion of his mental capacity. He used a debate with opponent Walter Mondale to calm the roiling waters. I want you know also I will not make age an issue of this campaign, he said. I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponents youth and inexperience. Even the 52-year-old Mondale broke into laughter at that one. Every major candidate since 1976 has chosen to debate, except Carter, who refused to participate in the first 1980 debate because it included independent candidate John Anderson. As a result of Carters obstinacy, a second debate was canceled. He finally got his one-on-one confrontation with Reagan a scant week before the election. As Carter learned by rough experience, shunning a debate is a risky political stratagem. There have been memorable debates moments since that 1984 ReaganMondale meeting, but none could be considered true game-changers. Sure, Michael Dukakis gave an embarrassingly detached and bloodless answer to a hypothetical question about how he would react if his wife were raped. And in 2000, Al Gore repeatedly and annoyingly sighed while George W. Bush spoke. Gore at one point also creepily strolled across the stage and invaded Bushs personal space. But nothing on the debate stage in 1988 or 2000 altered the course of the elections. Trump v. Clinton, however, could prove to be as decisive as the debate of 1960. The race is close, and voters have grave reservations about both candidates. Trump is typed as mercurial, racist and supremely unfit for the office he seeks. Clinton carries the extensive baggage of more than three decades spent in the public eye. Dogged by scandals, both personal and political, she continues to reel from disclosures about her use of emails as secretary of state, the involvement of the Clinton Foundation in her duties as a public official and even the failure to announce a pneumonia diagnosis. She seems incapable of putting the email matter or the Clinton Foundation imbroglio to rest. All of this has taken a toll on her standing. Polls reveal that she is seen by a majority of likely voters as dishonest and unlikable a circumstance shared with Trump. These upcoming debates (Sept. 26, Oct. 9 and Oct. 19) may be the last real opportunities both candidates have to redefine their images and reenergize their candidacies. How Trump and Clinton approach this crucial showdown says much about their personalities and also their approaches to the election and indeed to the office of president as well. THE COMMISSION ON PRESIDENTIAL Debates is a private, nonpartisan organization designated by federal law to sponsor presidential (and vice presidential) debates. The CPD, which includes both Republicans and Democrats, came into being in 1987 because of the haphazard manner in which debates in 1976, 1980 and 1984 were put together. The CPD has generally received high marks from both political parties until this election cycle. Trump has suggested without proof that the debates might be rigged against him. One of the diciest propositions addressed by the CPD is selecting moderators. Trump has waged a vigorous campaign against the media during his campaign, savaging just about every major news outlet at one time or another and referring to reporters as scum and horrible people. Finding moderators other than someone along the lines of Sean Hannity, the a vowed Trump mouthpiece at Fox News who would please the notoriously finicky Republican candidate, has been dicey. Holt of NBC moderates the first debate, Martha Raddatz of ABC and Anderson Cooper of CNN host the second (a town hall setting) and Chris Wallace of Fox gets the final encounter. Much to the relief of the CPD, Trump has indicated he can live with its choice of moderators. Trump approaches the debates in his typically loosey-goosey manner. He gathers around him trusted advisers at informal settings, such as one of his golf properties, where participants conduct freewheeling sessions while consuming bacon cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Usually present is campaign CEO Steve Bannon, former Fox News honcho Roger Ailes, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Laura Ingraham, a conservative talk radio personality. His debate prep is Donald Trump sitting around the table with a series of advisers, talking about issues, a Trump aide told CNN. As opposed to sitting there reading a briefing book, what hes doing is learning by talking to people. Trump who loves to wing it either from the stump or the debate podium has said he believes you can prep too much for a debate. And while his staff dutifully assembles briefing books for him, Trump is not the sort to spend hours poring over them. It can be dangerous, he said of extensive debate preparation. You can sound scripted or phony like youre trying to be someone youre not. In a Labor Day interview with David Muir of ABC News, Trump was asked about the run-up to the debate. Im prepping, maybe not in the traditional way, he explained. When I had the debates, I had 11 debates as you know in the primaries, and I was very satisfied. Everybody else was very satisfied with the way I did. And I think Im working the same way I did there. This lack of preparedness, this unpredictability makes Trump an extremely dangerous opponent for Clinton. How do you prepare for someone who could say anything at any moment? Brian Fallon, Clintons chief spokesman, neatly summarized the pitfalls facing his candidate when he recently tweeted: For all his lack of substance, Trumps showmanship, as ex-TV star, makes him a formidable debate foe. He trashed his rivals in GOP debates. For her part, Clinton seems to regard the debate in much the same way a lawyer which she is would a big court case. While Trump avoids the heavy lifting of debate prep, Clinton, who has never met a briefing book that she did not absolutely adore, eagerly embraces it. This attention to fine, nuanced points of policy might, in a normal presidential campaign be a strength, but this time it around it calls into sharp relief Clintons extraordinary vulnerabilities. She struggles as a public speaker to come across as genuine, often shouting as if her microphone has unaccountably been rendered mute. Even her aides acknowledge that she has trouble connecting emotionally with her audience something that cannot be said of Trump. While her command of facts is often impressive, her delivery and demeanor can be her undoing. One-on-one against someone like, say, well-mannered and always-prepared Ohio Gov. John Kasich a detail-oriented policy wonk like Clinton who failed in his bid for the Republican nomination she might do just fine. But facing a firebrand the likes of Donald Trump is a whole different ball game. Moreover, Clintons penchant for stilted, lawyerly pronouncements that sound as if they have been lifted from a laboriously drafted brief does little to ameliorate her considerable negatives. Being candid and trustworthy are the two last, big hurdles for her, and the debate is as much about dealing with those as disqualifying Trump, an unnamed Clinton adviser told Politico. How she deals with it and her ability to project herself as real and genuine doing it is an open question ... If she gives a canned, evasive answer I can easily see him pouncing and calling her a robot. In the end, there is no single, perfect means for getting ready for a debate, according to someone who should know Sean Ridley, director of debate at the University of Florida. Both (styles of preparation) work, Ridley said in an email interview. For me debate is about being comfortable with and confident in your arguments. Regardless of the way (Trump and Clinton) prepare, their contrasting approaches should be entertaining and more importantly help people figure out which they deem more credible. A great debater, Ridley explained, is someone who knows their arguments, is credible delivering them and is prepared to respond to the opposition. In one of the stranger disclosures leading up to the debate, it has leaked that the Clinton camp is consulting psychologists and psychiatrists as to what sorts of accusations and insults might cause Trump to lose his cool on stage. They are undertaking a forensic-style analysis of Trumps performances in the Republican primary debates, cataloging strengths and weaknesses as well as trigger points that caused him to lash out in less-than-presidential ways, The New York Times noted. Given Trumps notoriously thin skin and flash point temper all of which have been on abundant public display for more than a year the idea that Clinton needs help in this area seems rather puzzling. Briefing books and shrinks aside, the debate should be a Roman gladiatorlike spectacle, if nothing else. Trump has compared presidential debates to professional wrestling matches, and, in many respects, hes not far off the beam, especially when he is one of the participants. But professional wrestling (spoiler alert here for fans of this sport) is fake, scripted, with a predetermined winner. There is no script for Sept. 26, no anointed winner in advance. It will unfold as it is meant to unfold, for better or for worse with worse being the odds-on favorite at this juncture. And that is precisely why, my fellow Americans, we all will be watching.

And even from the earlier stages of my career I knew I wanted to share that experience by giving back to the community in some way. As chair of Junior Achievement of Southwest Floridas 2016 advisory board of the Business Hall of Fame-Collier County, Ive had the opportunity to be part of a program that truly makes a difference. My experience with JA of Southwest Florida goes back many years. As a member of the board of directors, I had the opportunity to see how the program impacts students. I also had the pleasure of teaching a six-week course about market dynamics to elementary students. I have found that JA gives students insight and creates a connection from school life to business life through its three pillars of education: financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness. I consider myself a numbers guy, and I enjoy showing students how learning math can be fun and how it translates into financial and business skills. Students are often known to say, Im never going to use this, but realistically, we use algebra every single day in business. JA programs enhance education by teaching real-life skills, such as balancing a check book, establishing a budget and other basic concepts that adults often take for granted. Most young people are fearless and have the ability to be our best entrepreneurs; they just need the tools to excel. Most people will be engaged in their careers for 40 or 50 years, and these educational opportunities help students realize the importance of schooling, envision the future and set incremental goals for a successful life. Theres no better way to exemplify the impact of these concepts to students than by providing real-life examples of business leadership. The JA Business Hall of Fame awards evenings provide students with an opportunity to gain insight from individuals who have prospered within the business world. During the events, Business Hall of Fame laureates are able to relate to students and reveal how dedication and entrepreneurial thinking transformed them into the successful business leaders they are today. This years Collier County laureates Kathy Bigham of Bigham Jewelers and Sen. Garrett Richter of First Florida Integrity Bank and TGR Financial Inc. are both excellent role models for students. Ive had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Richter for more than 20 years and recognize his ability to relate directly to children and generate enthusiasm for education. Ms. Bigham is also a strong example of a successful business leader who todays students can learn a lot from as they prepare for future careers. The Business Hall of Fame awards evening breaks from typical events by focusing on real stories and simple messages that are applicable to everyone in the room, students and adults alike. It continues to be my favorite event to go to because it is inspiring and enables guests to feel charged up to get back to their jobs and to approach tasks with greater enthusiasm. I hope you will join me in celebrating business leadership at the 2016 Business Hall of Fame-Collier County event Wednesday evening, Oct. 26, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Individual tickets are $250; sponsorship opportunities are available for $125 to cover the cost of admission for JA students. For more information, or to purchase a ticket or sponsor a student, call 2252590 or visit JASWFL.org.

Loggerheads. Across the state, from the panhandle to the tip of the peninsula and into the state of Georgia, records are being shattered. Although the final tallies from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have yet to be released, it appears the 200-plus beaches the agency analyzes will have a banner year. Georgia is reporting record numbers, too. We dont have an answer that the numbers are up because of X, Y or Z, said Anne Meylan, a senior research scientist at the FWC in St. Petersburg. Certainly, conservation in Florida, and the U.S. and the Caribbean in general, has helped sea turtles. Ms. Meylan coordinates two studies through the agencys Fish and Wildlife Research Institute: the Statewide Nesting Beach Survey and the Index Nesting Beach Survey. Both are aimed at furthering research into and conservation of the wildlife. Southwest Florida is coming in hot with an incredible increase five Lee beaches from Bunche Beach to Bonita Beach monitored by the nonprofit Turtle Time Inc. were home to 271 nests on Aug. 30, while Colliers shoreline totaled 1,956 among 10 beaches on Aug. 29. At the end of the 2015 nesting season, those same beaches reported only 183 nests in Lee and 1,509 nests in Collier. This is a record year. The last time we had a significant increase in turtles on Bonita Beach was 2012 when we had 122 nests, said Eve Haverfield, director of Turtle Time. To go up to 160 on that beach is quite astounding. Charlotte Countys Parks and Natural Resources Department recently reported 1,600 nests, up from 1,475 in 2015. The Boca Grande Sea Turtle Association reported 780 nests during the last weekend in August. While 2015 numbers werent at hand, the organizations licensed sea turtle monitor, Maureen McConnell, said there was a huge increase in nests this year. Many localities attribute the numbers to loggerheads, one of five sea turtle species who lay eggs along Floridas 800 miles of coastline. We do have a record number, she said. Not as many greens as usual, and I think the nests are starting to taper off. Despite the fact that a good portion of loggerheads are in the egg-laying year of their twoto three-year reproductive cycle, experts agree that the bump is larger than normal and cant attribute it to a single factor, thanks to the huge distances the animals travel during the decades it takes for them to start reproducing. These animals take as much as 30 or more years to reach sexual maturity, Ms. Meylan said. Whats showing up on our beaches now is like a light from a distant star. It took a long time to get here. It could be, however, that almost 40 years of focused conservation efforts are paying off. Thanks to regulations put in place in the 1980s that control human behaviors like beach lighting and fishing, some experts are hoping that Florida is finally starting to see some returns. Adrienne McCracken, field-operations manager at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, attributes the increase in the loggerhead population to bans on poaching, enforcement of regulations on fisheries and requirements for shrimping vessels to use turtle-excluding devices. Now, almost 30 years later, the population is reproductive and coming back, she said. Its what everybody has been working for. I know the sea-turtle community is very hopeful that we continue to see this trend. As of Sept. 12, 15,231 nests have been counted along the 9 miles of coastline the facility monitors. Last year the count was 10,679 loggerheads for the season, which ends Oct. 31. At John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach, more than 1,900 loggerhead nests have been accounted for along the 1-mile strand, a figure that impresses park-services specialist Art Carton. It was definitely a great year for loggerheads, Mr. Carton said. It just shows that the population keeps increasing and doing better and better. All the things that were put into place in the s are starting to bear fruit. During the peak of season in June and July, as many as 50 nesting females lumbered onto land each night. The double-digit nesting was exciting, Mr. Carton said. The species is healthy, for sure. In addition to loggerheads, two more species of sea turtles frequent the area during nesting season greens and leatherbacks. Greens, whose status is threatened like the loggerheads, have a biennial pattern in laying their eggs, and this year is a down year. Theyre known to do that, Mr. Carton said. You can see on the graphs that we have. The news is not bad. Rather, it means 2017 will bring an arribada of greens. Next year, we might have another 1,200 or 1,300 or more, Mr. Carton said, noting the park beat its 2013 record of 1,395 greens with 1,493 in 2015. Leatherbacks, brown behemoths that can reach weights of 1,000 pounds and lengths of 8 feet, are the rarest nesters and remain endangered. The states sea turtle monitoring program was initiated in 1979 with the statewide nesting beach survey to determine the density, seasonality and abundance of turtles in Florida, while the agency took further steps in 1989 to monitor the species productivity. The programs relies on a network of licensed volunteers who patrol local coastlines to count and mark new nests to warn beachgoers that disturbing them is a criminal offense. Managers use the data to evaluate and minimize the impact of human activity on the turtles nesting patterns. A raft of regulations that manage fishing and beach activities also supports efforts to revitalize the sea turtle population. Most counties do not have a centralized body tracking turtle counts, but instead rely on several volunteer organizations to accurately report nest numbers to the state. Lee County, for example, has at least three organizations Boca Grande Sea Turtle Association, Turtle Time Inc. and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Commission independently licensed and diligently counting new nests each morning. Ms. Meylan noted the state is home to more than 90 percent of the loggerhead-nesting population in the northwest Atlantic region, the largest region in the globe. Were going to have to keep monitoring, especially when were the worlds stewards of this species at this time, she said. How Florida goes is how the loggerhead goes.

BEHIND THE WHEELImage is as important as ability to the Infiniti QX80The Infiniti QX80 takes a long history of a celebrated and capable SUV and adds a dose of luxury. Its plainer cousin, the Nissan Patrol, hasnt been available in this country for decades, so while its unknown in the USA, it is a big deal from Tokyo to Dubai. Just as Toyota gave Lexus its own version of it go-anywhere Land Cruiser, Nissan and Infiniti share a similar relationship with the QX80. This full-size SUV doesnt try to hide its bulk. The hood is one big power bulge; the body is tall and boxy; and the 22-inch wheels are the size of toddlers. Its a design that works exceptionally well in this class. After all, a large SUV is supposed to make an impression, and this one physically takes up so much space it cannot be denied. Getting in is a multi-step process, thanks to this extra-tall ride. Thats also why theres a built-in side footstep for all passengers. Once inside, there is an instant feeling of luxury. Leather and wood cover nearly every surface, even at the most basic trim level. Theres plenty of storage room, but when it is not in use, Infiniti provides more natural-feeling lumber to cover up those cubbyholes. The huge exterior size translates into a very airy feeling from behind the wheel, with the height and large windows making for a commanding view of traffic. Two rows of bucket seats mean this one is the first choice for a double-date night. Plus, the accommodations for three in the third row are comfortable enough so teenagers and children will never complain. Those who need to carry more people can opt to turn the second row into a bench, which brings the total seating to eight. It might seem a little odd to charge extra to get rid of the second row captains chairs, but for the small market of people who carry a brood, its a distinctive option. The 5.6-liter V8 is the only motor available across the entire QX80 lineup. But with 400 hp and 413 lb/ft of torque, it has a small power advantage over the Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX570 twins. Infinitis engine is a multi-valve V8 with dual overhead camshafts and variable valve timing. What this means in the real world is it has a big V8 grunt when needed for work duty, and theres also decent acceleration in low-speed city traffic. Infiniti made sure that the suspension was softened enough to meet luxury car standards, but this SUVs Nissan Patrol heritage cannot be erased and thats a good thing. The rigid chassis thats the backbone of this SUV combines with the torque-happy motor to make for an impressive 8,500-pound towing capacity. Thats on par with some of the best of the full-size American SUVs, which means the boat can be trailered along for the road trip. The Patrol heritage also provides real off-road capability. The QX80s optional 4x4 drivetrain has an automatic differential thats found on most other luxury SUVs/crossovers. But the Infiniti also has a two-range transfer case for added utility in the snow and, especially important for Florida, sand. Competition comingThe QX80 will start experiencing competition from another source when the 2017 Nissan Armada switches to the Patrol platform. The Armada doesnt receive the power bulge hood styling and makes 10 hp less from the same V8 motor, but the refinement and capability are still quite comparable to the QX80. Nissan has elevated the Armadas luxury quotient, so theres even a bit of price overlap between the Infiniti and its more pedestrian relative. And that might be the QX80s saving grace. Luxury SUVs are often bought more for image than they are for capability. For every time owners need to haul a horse trailer across town, theres likely a dozen times theyre valet parking the same vehicle downtown. In a case like this, its worth the extra money to make sure your SUV doesnt share a badge with the $12K Nissan Versa.So yes, snob appeal will continue to win QX80 customers over the Armada, but the Infiniti isnt chosen purely out of vanity. Its genuine ability is what gets these customers to the showroom in the first place.

NN NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateWhat goes around, comes aroundOne of the Islamic States first reforms in captured territory has been to require adult women to dress devoutly including the face-covering burka robe, which, in Western democracies famously presents security dilemmas because it hinders identification. Now, after two years of Islamic State occupation in Mosul, Iraq, the security problem has come full circle on ISIS itself. Dispatches from the town reported in September that ISIS has likely banned the burka because it hinders identification of anti-ISIS insurgents who (female and male) wear burkas to sneak up on Islamic State officers.Recurring themes Barbara Murphy, 64, of Roy, Utah, is the most recent dead person battling the federal government to prove she is still alive (but seemingly getting nowhere). She said Social Security Administration bureaucrats, citing protocols, have been tight-lipped about her problem and remedies even though her bank account was frozen; Social Security was dunning her for two years worth of Medicare premiums (since her 2014 death); and warning letters had been sent to banks and credit agencies. Nonetheless, Murphy told the Deseret News in August that, all in all, she feels pretty good despite being dead. Political connections in some Latin American countries have allowed convicted drug dealers and crime bosses to serve their sentences comfortably, and the most recent instance to make the news, from Agence France-Presse, was the presidential-suite-type cell occupied by Brazilian drug lord Jarvis Chimenes Pavao in Paraguay. When police (apparently not politically connected) raided the cell in July, they found a well-appointed apartment with semi-luxurious furniture settings (including a conference table for Pavao to conduct business), embellished wallpaper designs with built-in bookcases, a huge TV among the latest electronics and even a handsome shoe rack holding Pavaos footwear selection. Pavao also rented out part of the suite to other inmates for the equivalent of $5,000 plus $600 weekly rent.Sounds familiar(1) Chris Atkins in Denver is among the most recent judicially ruled fathers to owe child support even though DNA tests have proven that another mans semen produced the child. Atkins is in the middle of a contentious divorce/child custody battle in which his estranged wife wants both custody and support payments, and since Atkins did not contest his fatherhood until the child reached age 11, he has lost legal standing. (2) A high school girl and her parents told the Tallahassee Democrat in July that they were on the verge of filing a lawsuit demanding that the school district order the Leon High School cheerleader squad to select her (even though she had fallen twice during tryouts).Least-competent criminals Boyd Wiley, 47, was arrested in August when he walked into the Putnam County Sheriffs Office and, apparently in all seriousness, demanded that deputies return the 91 marijuana plants they had unearthed from a vacant lot in the town of Interlachen several days earlier. (Until that moment, deputies did not know whose plants they were.) Wiley was told that growing marijuana is illegal in Florida and was arrested. The most recent perp to realize that cops use Facebook is Mack Yearwood, 42, who ignored a relatives advice and uploaded his Citrus County wanted poster for his Facebook profile picture, thus energizing deputies who, until then, had no leads on his whereabouts. He was caught a day later and faces a battery complaint and several open arrest warrants.

And thats especially true with respect to the heroic work done every day, around the clock, in the Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric Emergency Room at our North Naples hospital. Over the past seven months alone, our ER associates have saved countless lives in caring for a total of 14,560 patients. Here are two email communications that exemplify the critical importance of the work we do: Want to extend a sincere thank you to our awesome night team. We walked into a 4-year-old in cardiac arrest, a full waiting room and pediatric patients already in rooms with two staff nurses and a tech. Charge nurse Mary Brunetti recognized the situation at hand and sent over available staff to help at this high-volume time. Would like to recognize Madsa Marc, Eric Biddle, Carly Farcy, Julia Cannon and Joe Malo for making a difficult situation easier to get through. John Baldia, CCRN, was also an amazing resource and respiratory therapist George Mills did an exceptional job, all while caring for our critical patient. Diana Fleming and Jackie RiceDr. Pia Myers, director of our Pediatric ER, reminds me that her eight physician colleagues are all board certified in pediatrics and have years of pediatric ER experience. We also have the backup of pediatric specialists in critical care, dentistry, cardiology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, pulmonary and urology. Weve even been told by parents that our pediatric space is so inviting that when their treatment is through, kids want to come back to play in the waiting room and stay and watch the end of the movie they were viewing.SEE PEDIATRIC, A21 allenWEISSallen.email@example.com Early intervention can lessen the effects of learning disabilities NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHReading, writing and math are the building blocks of learning. Mastering these subjects early on can affect many areas of life, from school and work to ones overall health. Its normal to make mistakes and even struggle a little when learning new things. But repeated, long-lasting problems can be a sign of a learning disability. Learning disabilities arent related to how smart a child is. Theyre caused by differences in the brain that are present from birth, or shortly after. These differences affect how the brain handles information. Typically, in the first few years of elementary school, some children, in spite of adequate instruction, have a hard time and cant master the skills of reading and writing as efficiently as their peers, says Dr. Benedetto Vitiello, a psychiatrist and child mental health expert at NIH. So the issue is usually brought up as a learning problem. In general, the earlier a learning disability is recognized and addressed, the greater the likelihood for success in school and later in life. Initial screening and then ongoing monitoring of childrens performance is important for being able to tell quickly when they start to struggle, explains Brett Miller, Ph.D., a reading and writing disabilities expert at NIH. If youre not actively looking for it, you can miss opportunities to intervene early. Each learning disability has its own signs.A child with a reading disability might be a poor speller or have trouble reading quickly or recognizing common words. A child with a writing disability might write very slowly, have poor handwriting or have trouble expressing ideas in writing and organizing text. A math disability can make it hard for a child to understand basic concepts like multiplication, make change in cash transactions or do math-related word problems. Not all struggling learners have a disability. Many factors affect a persons ability to learn. Some students might learn more slowly or need more practice than their classmates. Poor vision or hearing can cause a child to miss whats being taught. Poor nutrition or exposure to toxins early in life can also contribute to learning difficulties. If a child is struggling in school, parents or teachers can request an evaluation for a learning disability. The U.S. Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act requires that public schools provide free special education support to children, including children with specific learning disabilities, who need such services. To qualify for these services, a child must be evaluated by the school and meet specific federal and state requirements.Many people with learning disabilities can develop strategies to cope with their disorder. A teacher or other learning specialist can help kids learn skills that build on their strengths to counter-balance their weaknesses. Educators might provide special teaching methods, make changes to the classroom or use technologies that can assist a childs learning needs.A child with a learning disability might also struggle with low selfesteem, lack of confidence and frustration. If appropriate interventions are provided, many of these challenges can be minimized. Effective intervention requires consistency and a partnership between school and home. Medications and behavioral interventions are often delivered at home. Teachers can usually advise parents on how to help kids at home, such as by scheduling appropriate amounts of time for learningrelated activities. Many complex factors can contribute to the development of learning disabilities. Learning disorders tend to run in families. Home, family and daily life also have a strong effect on a childs ability to learn starting from a very early age. Parents can help their children develop skills and build knowledge during the first few years of life that will support later learning. Early exposure to a rich environment is important for brain development, says Kathy Mann Koepke, Ph.D., a math learning disability expert at NIH. Engage your child in different learning activities from the start. Before theyre even speaking, kids are learning even if its just listening and watching as you talk about what youre doing in your daily tasks. Point out and talk with children about the names, colors, shapes, sizes and numbers of objects in their environment. Try to use comparison words like more than or less than. This will help teach your child about the relationships between things, which is important for learning math concepts, Ms. Mann Koepke adds. Even basic things, like getting enough sleep and eating a healthy diet, can help childrens brain development and their ability to learn. NIH is continuing to invest in research centers that study learning challenges and their treatments, with a special focus on understudied and highrisk groups. Although there are no cures, early interventions offer essential learning tools and strategies to help lessen the effects of learning disabilities. With support from caregivers, educators and health providers, people with learning disabilities can be successful at school, work and in their personal lives.

I am emailing to share with you a rubber chicken story. On Sunday evening I had a 3-year-old patient being worked up for seizures. He was frightened and spoke no English. The doctor ordered a CT brain (for which patients need to hold perfectly still). The boy fell asleep before the test, so we attempted to scan with him asleep, but that didnt work. We were going to have to sedate him, when the boy looked at the rubber chicken I had on my badge. I asked if he wanted the rubber chicken, and he smiled. I took the chicken off my badge and gave it to him. He kept smiling and held perfectly still for the whole test. Nothing is better than a rubber chicken.

The medications she took for her heart condition caused her to have to urinate frequently, and since I am a light sleeper, it fell to me to take her out for her late-night perambulations. It was peaceful. Id look at stars I didnt usually see or listen to the geese honking in the distance. One night we saw a large, white possum walking on top of the wall that separates our condo complex from the shopping center next door. In fall, wed listen to the Santa Ana winds blow. We saw the moon in all her phases. Crickets chirped. In Oklahoma, visiting my parents, we heard owls hooting in the tree above us. Theres a twilight time in pets lives. Theyre not quite ready to go yet, and were definitely not ready for them to go. Their treacherous bodies have betrayed them, and they need more help getting around. Maybe they cant make it up and down the stairs anymore and must be carried. We did that with our greyhound, Savanna, after she lost a leg to bone cancer. Or, like Bella, they might need access to the outdoors at odd hours. Not every infirm animal has access to a pet door and a yard or is able to use them on her own. At times, Bella would lose her appetite and need to be hand-fed for a few days. Currently, my dogs are middle-aged, or not yet at the stage where they need midnight ministrations. But I have friends who are at this point with their senior dogs. Its hard. I remember. Never getting a full nights sleep. Always keeping one ear open for the sounds that signal shes getting up and needs to go out. You groan, but you dont hesitate to jump out of bed, throw on a robe and carry her downstairs. Because the alternative is cleaning up a pool of pee in the dark so you dont wake your spouse. I tried to get Bella to use pee pads, but that was a shocking concept to a lady who prided herself on her housetraining. What saved us were diapers. We didnt keep one on her all the time, but she wore one at night. Sometimes, not always, it allowed me to sleep the night through. I say sometimes, because if Bella had to potty in the middle of the night, she didnt always like doing it in the diaper. I would be awakened by her attempts to rip it off, so I would get up and take her out. But for the most part, wearing a diaper seemed to encourage her to hold it for longer periods. Caring for an old or sick animal is stressful and time-consuming. Feelings of love clash with exhaustion and frustration. You feel guilty about feeling frustrated or wishing you could sleep more, because you know that being able to sleep through the night could mean only one thing: Your pet is gone. And thats not what you want. Those feelings are normal. They dont mean you dont love your pet or that you want her to die. They are a natural outgrowth of the stress of being a caregiver. The good news is that our pets love us no matter what. They forgive us for the mistakes we make as we shepherd them through their final years or months. All we can do is our best and cherish the time we have remaining with them.

THE DIVA DIARIESCome football season, its time to cue up Gone With The Wind againMy husband is screaming at the TV. The expletives flying out of his mouth are shocking and Im not easily shocked and his condemnation of his beloved University of Tennessee Volunteers is passionate. Todds alma mater is barely winning and hes not happy. Not being into football at ALL (my friend Amy and I often refer to it as Footgame or Sportsball), I innocently ask why he is so displeased with his team. I mean, after all, theyre not losing. BECAUSE THEYRE PLAYING ON THEIR OWN FOOTBALL FIELD! he says. And as if that explanation werent enough, he adds, AND theyre playing Appalachian State! Appalachian State ISNT EVEN A TEAM! Apologies to any fans of Appalachian State University, by the way. My normally calm, level-headed husband shouted it in the heat of the moment. This was a few weeks ago, and the Vols DID win, but only by seven points, which apparently was no cause for celebration. His team did not play well, despite the fact that Todd wore his bright orange Volunteer pajama pants and matching shirt to watch the game. Sometimes the fan outfits (or is it gear?) work, sometimes not so much. Its football season, and there are no guarantees. Ive just never been into football or pretty much any ball, for that matter. I have a standing Girls Day Out date to see the Red Sox play every year on St. Patricks Day, but while the four of us love the hot dogs and Cracker Jacks (not to mention the adult beverages), we spend about 10 minutes watching the game and the rest of the time catching up, laughing and flitting around the stadium at JetBlue Park. The rest of my family loves basketball, but I usually find it boring with the exception of the last five minutes, sometimes. I DO enjoy golf, which involves a ball (tiny though it is), but only when Tiger Woods is playing in a major tournament on a Sunday afternoon and sadly, its been a long time since that happened, sigh. Not being a football fan makes me not only a Sportsball widow but also friendless in the Footgame department, because the majority of my girlfriends or rather squad (see, Im hip) are seriously into watching a bunch of fellows run around a field risking major knee injuries, torn ligaments, lost teeth and concussions even though strangers in living rooms all across America are screaming at them. It seems like such a thankless job. If it werent for the millions of dollars pro Footgame players make, theyd probably throw in the towel and go into pharmaceutical sales or something. I love seeing my pals so dedicated to their college teams, though. When games gets down to the wire, my friend Stacy, a loyal FSU Seminole, starts frantically cleaning her house in order to push her team into a winning position (and I would guess to calm her nerves, too it would be ideal if Todd adopted this tradition). My friend Melinda, a lifelong Florida Gator, wears her lucky team underwear from Victorias Secret on game days (and when her UF boys are losing, she changes into the spare pair). And in a house divided, my friend Sarah of UF and her husband, a Georgia Bulldog, have to watch their teams face off in separate rooms every year as passions run high. Meanwhile, as Todd yells at the UT coach and all my girlfriends employ their various traditions, Im holed up in the bedroom watching Gone With The Wind for the 37th time, because when it comes to Sportsball, frankly, my dear, I dont give a foot. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIn the past, designing and making a model could take months to draw, revise and create through traditional modeling processes such as injection molding making a mold and injecting it with resin or metal, tooling it, then tweaking it to the clients specifications. It then required an all-new mold just for a prototype. Enter 3-D printing and scanning. -D was there in college; a lot of us were able to play around with it in labs, Mr. Calloway said. But printers were expensive and programming for them was still evolving with limited applications. The technology is catching up, he said, to the point where middle school science students can program the printers, and prices are such theyre available for a few thousand dollars for a decent tabletop model. Now, he said, the technology is used in Everything from simple to complex designs: toys to aerospace. Anyone from NASA scientists to 10-year-old kids are using it. But despite the name, its not a local print shop thats a quick-turn affair. Theres a major learning curve with software interfaces and limitations on the applications. Thats where Halo comes in educating the scientists and tinkerers alike. The reality is the big companies have 3-D printing, but they dont know what to do with it. Lockheed, Pratt, they all have 3-D. Were helping companies with existing machines use them. Teaching businesses and individuals the possibilities for the technology is the goal of the storefront. Shelves are lined with 3-D printed dinosaurs and modern drinking cups in a variety of colors. Others hold intricate minimodels of the Taj Mahal and the U.S. Capitol. Mr. Calloway is quick to show off the giant nuts and bolts and ratchet wrench that are functional examples of how the 3-D printing can be flexible, yet strong. Spools of resin cords that are fed into the printers line another shelf. And the printers, small enough to fit on other shelves, are displayed in the windows. The technology is more than 30 years old, he said, but in the last decade, it has taken off with competitors bringing faster and cheaper machines to the market. This is fused deposition modeling FD modeling in the vernacular. Think of a hot glue gun. The resin is heated up and built up a layer at a time. This is called additive manufacturing, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing where an object is put into a mold and design areas revealed after cutting or drilling to form the object. Theres really very little waste thats also a plus to this. You are building up layers of material, rather starting with a solid and subtracting. While he doesnt expect the process to wipe out the human element in manufacturing someone must run the robots on any line, he points out, and program the software that drives them there are plenty of applications where 3-D printers could replace existing jobs. He sees the field growing exponentially, yet says, Its still just one more tool in a toolbox. The firm has 10 printers now; many are the MakerBot Replicator tabletop models. But he expects to have several more in a warehouse location by next spring. They are currently waiting for a printer that will print a 6-by-4-by-4-foot object. While a majority of items are printed using a material called pla (polylacticacid) a resin, any material except glass can be used. We can print one or two colors at a time right now, any color, but its expanding to full-color soon, he said. Costs are relative to the complexity and design of the objects. He showed a simple business card holder with a logo on it it could run as little as $5 per holder in volume. Cost includes the CAD and design time, the model and then the print time. Still, it could be less than $1,000 for a unique design, he said. But its not a quick-print, he said. The expectations are that someone can drop off a drawing and we have it ready for them that afternoon. Its not that fast. It can take a few weeks, and if its a detailed design, maybe a couple of months. Signs on the walls and photos point to the major fields theyre focused on: aerospace, medical, military, marine, automotive, and architecture. With the proximity of the marine industries nearby, Mr. Calloway said its an easy fit to offer services to that group for manufacturing and tooling parts at a fraction of the cost and time that traditional methods require. The parts are made of a strong resin, which also is corrosion resistant, better for the saltwater environment, he said and at a fraction of the cost. One knob for a ship was quoted at $300,000 to retool. We converted the item to a durable plastic from metal, and can produce it under $50,000. Thats just one simple example. There are thousands of parts that can be built using 3-D. Durability and strength are a surprise to many, who envision simple plastic items coming from a small printer. At NASA, many of their working planes have 3-D printed parts. There are hypercars with them the Zonda is running with 3-D printed turbos. But he is most excited about the potential in the medical field with prosthetics. He has met with Chad Coarsey, an FAU student fitted with a 3-D-printed hand. It takes months and sometimes years, to get kids fitted with a prosthetic. They can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Then they grow, and it becomes useless. With a 3-D printer, you can create a hand that is fully functional, and it will take weeks, not months, and cost hundreds, not thousands. When they outgrow it, we could print a new one, Mr. Calloway said. The portability of the machines, and low cost for materials make it a sure fit for charities doing work in war-torn areas and foreign countries where prosthetics are far beyond the reach of most who need them, he said. Mr. Coarsey, 26, said the benefits to a 3-D printed prosthesis are great. We can custom-print a hand in certain colors for the kids. Its beyond words, the reward of seeing their faces when they get a functioning hand. More exciting is the possibility of other 3-D medical applications, he said. Were going to be printing out functioning organs. Dr. Ataly at Wake Forest University has printed a functioning bladder. Testing cancer on 3-D printed cells is an ongoing experiment, he said. Because of FDA regulations, Halo cant make prosthetics for anyone except as a prototype, but Mr. Calloway expects those laws to change over time. But its still early in the technology, relatively speaking, he said. Theres no end to what could be possible in any field. Everyone is still learning it. He referenced the rehydrated pizza machine from a famous movie. It so happens that pizza vending machines are just now a reality in New York City. It really is Back to the Future stuff.

My founder developed the improved pointer telegraph machine and also a gutta-percha press with which to insulate copper wires. He also introduced profit sharing to his employees in 1866. I electrified Ireland in the 1920s and was an early maker of memory chips. Today Im a global force in electrification, automation and digitalization, churning out energy-efficient technologies for energy, health care and other industries.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. A Pre-Investing ChecklistThe stock market beats most alternatives for growing long-term wealth. You might think that all you need in order to invest in stocks is money, but thats not the case. If you want to actively select, buy and sell individual stocks, you will need to: Understand that the value of your holdings will fluctuate, and that sometimes youll lose money. Be willing to do some math. Not need any of the money you invest for at least five years, if not 10 or more. Be able to tell the difference between a balance sheet and an income statement and know where to find them. Know that its much more important to understand and follow a business than to just follow stock prices each day. Have a long-term investment horizon, aiming to hold on to your stocks for years, as long as they remain healthy and growing. Know to compare your performance to a benchmark such as the S&P 500 index. Before investing in a company, you should: Know its major products, services and competitors. Be able to explain exactly why youre buying it and what would make you sell it. Understand its competitive advantages. Have studied its financial statements and assessed various measures (such as profit margins). Have multiple sources of information about it. Expect to keep up with it, reading its quarterly reports.That all might seem daunting, but its all achievable, and many people greatly enjoy the learning process as well as investing. If youre not ready to be an active investor, though, fear not you can be a passive one, and do quite well. Opt for simple, inexpensive index funds, such as those based on the S&P 500, which tend to beat most stock mutual funds over long periods. Even Warren Buffett has recommended them for most folks. Ominous BargainsMy first investment many years ago taught me a good lesson. I had read that you should invest in what you know. Well, I liked to sew, and at my favorite fabric shop I found lots of bargains, so I invested in it. After it filed for bankruptcy protection and Id lost most of my investment, I realized that I had found lots of bargains because the company had been trying desperately to raise cash. I learned to look at balance sheets and income statements. Ive been doing that ever since, with much better results. I think you learn more from your mistakes than your successes! P.D., HoustonThe Fool Responds: Youre right that mistakes can be quite valuable through the lessons they impart. Investing in what you know is generally good advice, but it has its limits. Its smart to focus on industries and companies with which youre very familiar or ones with which youre willing to become very familiar. You might consider companies in your employment industry or ones you patronize frequently in other parts of your life. Dont just blindly buy into any company that you love, though, because even if its a great long-term performer, it might be overpriced at the moment. Or maybe a closer look will reveal that its facing some serious challenges. Perhaps just start with companies or industries you know and then start researching. Biotech BountyBiogen Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB) is one of the oldest and largest biotech companies, and its shares have recently been trading at attractive levels. The stock has been depressed in part due to a once-promising multiple sclerosis (MS) drug presenting weak results in clinical trials, but theres much more to Biogen than that. For starters, Biogens second quarter featured total revenue of $2.9 billion, up 12 percent over year-ago levels. Revenue was boosted by ongoing demand for Tecfidera, an oral MS drug thats selling at an annualized $3.9 billion pace, and rising demand for Biogens long-lasting hemophilia drugs, Eloctate and Alprolix. Biogens cost-cutting is also helping, turning more of its revenue into earnings. Biogen has a promising pipeline of drugs in development, too. Its Nusinersen may become the first-ever treatment for the leading genetic cause of infant mortality, spinal muscular atrophy, potentially bringing in more than $1.5 billion if approved. Its aducanumab, a treatment for early Alzheimers disease, was recently granted fast track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If it ends up approved, possibly in 2020, it could be a huge seller. Biogen has one of the strongest balance sheets in biotech, has been aggressively buying back shares (which boosts the value of remaining shares), and sports double-digit topand bottom-line growth rates. Consider it for your portfolio. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Biogen.) I trace my roots back to Oregon in 1 964, w hen I w as founded by a track coach and his former student. A shoe with my current name debuted in 1972, and today Im a global leader in athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories. Over the years I acquired names such as Converse and Hurley, and Ive been endorsed by Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer and the Greek goddess of victory. My innovations include a sole design stemming from rubber poured onto a waffle iron. I rake in more than $30 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Nike) Current and Quick RatiosQWhat does comparing a companys current assets to its current liabilities tell me? H.L., DetroitAIf you divide a companys current assets by its current liabilities, youll get its current ratio, reflecting whether it has sufficient short-term assets (such as cash and expected incoming payments) to cover its short-term obligations (such as payments and interest due). The quick ratio, where you subtract inventories from current assets before dividing by current liabilities, yields results that are a bit more meaningful. Its smart to assess a companys current debt situation, but remember that it shows you only one part of the companys picture, revealing nothing about its long-term debt, efficiency, competitive position or valuation. Be sure to examine any portfolio candidate from different angles, looking into its profit margins, inventory levels, revenue and earnings growth rates and more. Checking out a companys management is smart, too.Learn more about evaluating and investing in stocks at fool.com/ investing/basics/index.aspx and morningstar.com/start-investing.html.***QI know that I can buy shares of stock through a regular brokerage account, but Ive heard that I can also buy shares directly from the companies themselves. How does that work? R.W., Rutland, VermontAThere are many ways to buy and own stock. Brokerage accounts are one way, and you can profit from stocks though stakes in mutual funds, too. With hundreds of companies, you can also buy shares directly from the company, through Direct Stock Purchase (DSP) plans, Dividend Reinvestment Plans (sometimes referred to as Drips) and the like. These plans generally let you buy small chunks of stock, for small sums, and they charge low or no fees. Learn more at fool. com/school/DRIPs.htm, dripinvesting.org and directinvesting.com.

FURNISHED & BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED!NABOR numbers point the way to a strong season SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMomentum in the housing market remains strong heading into fall, based on the newest numbers from the Naples Area Board of Realtors, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). NABORs August 2016 market report indicates inventory continues to increase while median closed prices remain unchanged. Overall activity in the $2 million and above category failed to perform as well in August compared to other price categories. However, condominium inventory in this luxury segment of the market increased 84 percent, to 81 condominiums in August 2016 from 44 condominiums in August 2015. The overall median closed price in the category fell 19 percent, to $2,537,000 in August 2016 from $3,132,000 in August 2015. This behavior of increased inventory and lower prices primes the luxury segment of the market for a season where the number of properties priced right can meet demand. Buyers in the under $300,000 category found plenty of options in the condominium market. August 2016 saw 211 closed sales for such condominiums, compared with 93 closed sales in all other price categories combined. The median closed price for condominiums in this entry-leve category was $193,000. August also saw a 50 percent increase in inventory for condominiums in the $300,000 and below category, with 974 available in August 2016 compared with 648 in August one year ago. Overall inventory increased 36 percent for the second month in a row, to 4,787 homes in August this year from 3,525 homes in August a year ago. While inventory rose in all price categories for both home types, the overall median closed price remained flat in August, with the exception of homes in the $300,000 and below category, which increased 9 percent to $210,000 in August 2016 from $192,000 in August 2015. Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty Inc. predicts that if prices continue to remain stable as they have over the last year, then choices and reasonable prices will make for a good winter-spring season in the local market. Sparkling lake views will capture your daytime attention, but the evening sunsets from this west-facing villa will captivate your senses. Built in 2011, the three-bedroom-plus-den, 3-bath residence delivers all the amenities for experiencing the ultimate Florida lifestyle. The gated courtyard entry and grand foyer will charm owners and their guests alike. The spacious first-floor master opens to the pool, and two en-suite bedrooms provide privacy and plenty of room for family and friends.

Book Broker Publishers. 362 pages. Trade paperback, $15.99.Playing off the principle slogan of the Trump campaign, with its implicit racial and cultural elitism, Teresa Jenkins has crafted a mighty call for a strong resurgence of true democracy as viewed from the left side of the political pulpit. The author presents a carefully researched and reasoned argument that is really three arguments in one. The first strives to extol the virtues of what enemies would call big government. Ms. Jenkins applauds having a government big enough to continue the social benefits that, beginning with FDR, the Democratic liberal-leaning agenda has brought forth. She sees these accomplishments, from Social Security to the Affordable Care Act, as part of a continuum that must keep advancing. Her second argument is for the absolute necessity of respectful political debate in which the contest is truly one of ideas, not slogans or name-calling or fear mongering. The third argument calls for the widest possible enfranchisement of citizen voters. The more that citizens embrace the ballot box and all the other means of engagement that shape government action, the more the American Dream is realized. This o utcome r equires selfeducation and open-minded listening. Ms. Jenkins drives home her concerns in 12 tightly organized chapters, each compressing a heap of fact and a measure of passionate, honest opinion. First comes a historical overview of our major political parties, focusing on changes that evolved through the second half of the 20th century and continue today. Pivotal figures are President Richard Nixon, Newt Gingrich and George Wallace. The second chapter establishes a pattern of analyzing and criticizing Republican policies and politics. Though she always sets the issues in the context of each partyÂs stance and rhetoric, Ms. JenkinsÂ emphasis on Republican negatives does not allow much room for Democratic positives. IÂm not sure how effective this strategy will be in winning over anyone from the enemy camp. The chapter titles poison the well: ÂTodayÂs Republican Party: The Return of Ebenezer Scrooge,ÂŽ ÂA Silent Minority No MoreÂŽ (in which Ms. Jenkins takes on the Tea Party), ÂWaging a War on Women and Non-Traditional MarriageÂŽ and ÂOpposition to Immigration Reform: A Cynical StrategyÂŽ are examples. Within each chapter and subchapter, her arguments are compelling, but more neutral chapter titles might serve her goals more effectively. I should make it clear that I agree with almost everything Ms. Jenkins has to say. However, I think she could do more than just fire up those already prone to agree with her. Surely she intends to change some minds, but there are ways to accomplish this that are more likely to succeed. The bookÂs later chapters are probably of greater importance than those shaped as partisan attacks, however well reasoned. These chapters look into the structural matters that control voter registration and voter turnout. The author reminds us that the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution (passed in 1870), which gave former male slaves the right to vote, privileged Republicans. Southern Democrats worked to suppress the black vote. Though the partiesÂ positions have been reversed, we still find the politicians maneuvering to either shrink or enlarge the electorate depending on the expected benefits of either adjustment. This is true at all levels: national, state, county and municipal. The location of polling places, what hours they are open, whether or not early voting or mail-in voting is permitted Â„ these and other factors too often are manipulated to shape o utcomes. Ms. Jenkins analyzes the demographic changes in recent decades and the gamesmanship connected with voter identification photos and other state and local regulations that, in one way or another, limit registration and election turnout. For her, the health of the nation depends on equal access for all citizens to exercise their voting rights. She is an ardent fighter against regulations designed to block entry to the voting booth, and how can anyone not want to join that fight? ÂMake Democracy Work AgainÂŽ is filled with useful graphs and charts that clarify demographic issues. All in all, it is a clearly written, aggressively argued plea for fair and full citizen engagement. A seasoned federal government executive and leader of nonpartisan voter education organizations, Ms. Jenkins makes her home in Punta Gorda.

around town. Having spent decades using her canvas to chronicle the social exploits of the glitterati in Paris, Italy and throughout continental Europe, Ms. Wesselman turned her eye on Naples nine years ago. Im fascinated by people and the psychological basis for what they do, she says. For 30 years Ive been considered one of the commentaries on American and European social life. Although I have certainly painted the big social strata here because there is one Im interested in people in all parts of life. People are people whether theyre in ball gowns or jeans. High society certainly has captured her attention over the years, however, and Naples moneyed class is no exception. Her book contains paintings chronicling their leisure activities in places like the tony shopping and dining areas of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South and at assorted galas and charity events. I have to say that I have done a lot of the higher end of society because its visually more exciting, she says. The ball gowns and jewels and furs when people come down a grand staircase is stunning, she says. Its a visual candy box Its so much fun to paint the beautiful colors and fabrics. She began her artistic career as a child, drawing pictures of foreign dignitaries when her father, employed with the State Department and assigned to locales including Nairobi, Rabat and Quito, hauled her and her sister along to meetings. My sister and I had to just sit there because there were no babysitters and there was nothing to do, she says. So I drew pictures of the people. She earned a degree in design at Cornell University and then moved to Europe to study and copy the works of the old masters. From age 22, I was focused on painting for my life, wherever it took me, she says. Its taken her around the world, but she made a pit stop in the Caribbean during her 20s to live the artists life for a bit, selling paintings to tourists off cruise ships. A bare-bones existence in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Tortola allowed her to find a more faceted view of society, especially during get-togethers with islanders that included homemade spirits and music. Its OK when youre that age. It was fun because it was a wild time, she says. It was a wonderful life. I wanted to escape society and view it from a distance. Her dedication to a life of painting paid off. In addition to acquiring a number of awards and distinctions, she was selected as the first woman to be accepted into the Collection dArt Modern de la Ville de Paris and the Centro Culturale dItalia in Rome. To be in Paris was the ideal, she says. They always said to me no, no, no. You are American, you are a woman and worst of all youre still alive. But in the end, she did get a gallery in Paris and enjoyed great success. That was, to me, a feather in my cap. All the collectors and local solicitors who asked Ms. Wesselmann to compile her paintings into a coffee table book would be another feather. Until Naples Faces & Places was released last December (a second edition hit stores in August), a book that captured an artistic portrayal of Neapolitans rather than their natural or physical surroundings didnt exist. I wanted to capture a slice of history in Naples, she said. It was really, really fun. I enjoyed it tremendously. Next on deck is a book containing paintings of specimens from Naples Botanical Garden, a welcome departure for the artist. As you get older, you appreciate some of the simpler things in life more, she says. Before, I was dazzled by the beauty and sumptuousness of soirees and embassy balls, but now, being here, Im appreciating something like the leaves after the rain. For now, Naples Faces & Places is available at Jammin on Fifth, The von Liebig Art Center and The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. The digital version is currently available on Amazon with a hard copy available soon. For more information, visit janinewesselmann. com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Gulfshore Opera hits the high notes from Marco Island to Punta GordaGulfshore Opera plans 26 events equally dispersed among the three coastal counties of Southwest Florida between October and May for its 201617 season. The offerings include opera and classical vocal music concerts, from full-scale productions to community concerts, social engagement events and an elegant gala. New for the regional companys third season is the Professional Artists in Residence program bringing five opera professionals to work with the company and in the community for productions and concerts in January-February. We are looking at some great talent to bring in for the winter months, Steffanie Pearce, GO founder and general director, says. Full-scale productions for the season include a Renaissancestyle Christmas pageant that pairs Ottorino Respighis Laud to the Nativity with Benjamin Brittens Ceremony of Carols. Both 30-minute-long classical vocal works oscillate between 20th-century and Renaissance style with allusions to 16th-century madrigals. The pageant will be performed in Renaissance costume with nationally recognized soloists, chorus, harp and chamber orchestra. Throughout January, the company will present Grand Opera Nights, a series of complete scenes from famous operas, staged in costume and with chamber ensemble accompaniment. January also brings the Gulfshore Opera Gala, this year titled Diva on Detour and with soprano Patricia Racette singing cabaret songs from her album. The concert takes place at First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs and is followed by dinner and more at Bonita Bay Club on Sunday, Jan. 22. For something completely new and in a first-time venue for GO, the company presents Speed Dating Tonight. The 2013 work by Michael Ching pulls the curtain back on dating in the 21st century. A jazz ensemble accompanies this one-act comic opera that Ms. Pearce describes as a Opera Naples brings full-scale shows, various concert evenings to area stagesOpera Naples opens the new season with Puccinis Turandot at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, at ArtisNaples. ON Artistic Director Ramon Tebar conducts the epic tale that includes a vengeful, beautiful princess playing a deadly game of riddles with noble pursuers and a prince who challenges her to the very end. Turandot, the Princess of Peking, decapitates every suitor who fails to answer her riddles. When Calaf, the Prince of Tartar, falls in love with her and heroically wins her ghastly game, he then proposes his own riddle to the princess and puts his love and life in her hands. American soprano Marcy Stonikas stars in the title role for ON. Ms. Stonikas starts her 2016-17 season singing the role of Gertrude in Seattle Operas Hansel and Gretel (Oct. 15-30). She will make her debut with Atlanta Opera as Princess Turandot next spring. She is a winner of the 2013 George London Foundation Vocal Competition and was the first prize winner in the Wagner Division of the 2013 Gerda Lissner Foundational Vocal Competition. In reviewing Cincinnati Operas 2015 production of Turandot, in which Ms. Stonikas sang the title role, Joe Law of Opera News wrote that she was fearless, hurling the riddles at Calf and riding the massive ensemble at the end of the second act. There was sweetness as well when the music revealed Turandots vulnerability. It was an impressive debut Italian-Brazilian lirico spinto tenor Thiago Arancam sings opposite Ms. Stonikas as Prince Calf. A native of Brazil, Mr. Thiago was the first Brazilian accepted to the Accademia of La Scala under the tutelage of legendary soprano Leyla Gencer. He is a past winner of the Operalia Competition. In the last year he has performed in Turandot with the Simon Bolivar Symphony, in Tosca with the London Philharmonic in Royal Festival Hall, and in Un Ballo in Maschera with Malmo Opera in Sweden. Later this season he will performs in Fosca with Theatro Municipal de Sao Paulo SEE GULFSHORE OPERA, C24 SEE OPERA NAPLES, C24 TEBAR ARANCAM STONIKAS COURTESY PHOTODiva on Detour with Patricia Racette

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYStrawberry chartreuse and goat cheese tunes on The Great Irish BagelIt all began oh, who knows how it all began? I watched a couple of Danish and Danish/Swedish TV shows: all three seasons of Borgen, an excellent series about a woman who becomes the prime minister of Denmark, and Bron/Broen a crime drama serial about a body discovered on the mid-point of a bridge between Denmark and Sweden. Because I speak neither language, I employed the closed captioning program. Then I discovered The Great British Bake Off. (Our local PBS station has broadcast three seasons, but its just started its seventh season in the UK where, at its peak, it drew 13.3 million viewers.) The show consists of a dozen amateur bakers in a large white tent in the middle of the English countryside. Each week, theyre given three new baking challenges. At the end of each show, someones declared Star Baker and someone is sent home. It might sound boring, but in reality, its charming and funny and contains a fair share of naughty double entendres, some intentional and some accidental, delivered with dry British wit. When the most recent series ended, I flailed about, looking for a Bake Off fix. And that was when I discovered The Great Irish Bake Off on the Internet, a spin-off. Not quite the same thing, but it would do in a pinch. But the Irish accents were hard to decipher sometimes, especially combined with bad computer speakers and unfamiliar baking terminology. The accents, at times, were thicker than the fur on a Husky dog at the North Pole. So I started using the closed captioning, thinking it would help clarify some dialogue. Boy, was I wrong. I soon found myself laughing and hooting at the screen. The captioning couldnt seem to get anything right. It called the show The Great Irish Shake Off, The Great Irish Make Off, The Great Irish Bagel, The Great Irish Bacon and The Great Irish Giggles. And in one introduction, the hostess spread her arms wide to welcome viewers while the closed captioning had her declaring, This is the race Irish big balls! Youd think theyd at least get the name of the show right. The captioner couldnt always get the names of the judges correct either, calling them Paul and video, Paul and Betty, pole and Lily and Paul ability instead of Paul and Biddy. It called the bakers anchors, makers or acres or, most often, bakers with an apostrophe (which drove me nuts, because the word wasnt being used in the possessive). I soon began paying more attention to the closed captioning than the show it was allegedly transcribing. It was immensely more entertaining. To put it bluntly, the captioning made no sense. Words were tossed together like a fruit salad, thrown against each other willy-nilly. Some were sheer poetry:Its almost like a siren Busy street Chevy engine Bring it to a large room.What does that have to do with baking? Nothing. And:Its a free street Roxbury Underneath is a city The negative is a pityThe person doing the captioning seemed to have only a vague acquaintance with the English language. He or she seemed to be guessing at words or just grabbing for something that sounded approximately right, though many times they were far, far from the mark. Words were dropped regularly, maybe when they didnt understand at all what was being said. Sometimes entire sentences went missing. Punctuation was nonexistent. I pictured someone new on the job, frantically trying to transcribe the dialogue but failing miserably. Shed keep trying to catch up and then, from time to time, seem to give up. Then I pictured someone drinking on the job, growing more and more soused. Or maybe it was someone who hated her job so much, she was planning on quitting and was going out in grand style, making up dialogue and typing nonsequiturs. I mean, really, someone says, Im having a slight hope of being in the final and the caption reads, (Im) having a slight hope of being a pedophile. Of course, what would you expect from a country that gave us novelist James Joyce, who wrote Finnegans Wake and Ulysses and whose streamof-consciousness writing baffled generations of readers? Some captioning reads like early Bob Dylan lyrics, with cryptic remarks such as, I havent see girls but Ive got/something that will work just as well or The chicken was Jonathans heart. And why would a judge allegedly say to a contestant, You are a pirate in Vegas. The captioner had his own suggestive comments:Please is a light porn process and making it is a delicate process a few seconds too long on the heat.And: Never made a rough post pastry before so I know what it is though his penis I know what its supposed to look like.Words such as Sunnis, Al Quida and Christmas Credit Corporation appear, though I swear none of the bakers are talking about any of that. Theres also a mention of a Tardis, which would make more sense if this were Dr. Who. Calzones are called cows on it, love you arizonas, Pauls cousin, goals count zones, cars on it and cards only. Theres also a mention of goat cheese tunes. The wonderful paradoxical phrase strawberry chartreuse shows up. Now I think the captioner is tripping, seeing non-existent colors. Nice Christmas tree, someone allegedly says, though theres not a tree in sight. The twins are so thin they only need a few/minutes in the oven, someone supposedly says. Great baking advice, I guess, if youre the witch in Hansel and Gretel. And then I had a thought: what is the closed captioning like for The Great Australian Bake Off? Yep, sure enough, more word jumble. The captioner calls the show everything from The Great Australian Cycle to The Great Australian Break-off to The Great Australian Back-Off. They type signature Ozzy assortments when someones talking about signature Aussie assortments. The captioner obviously does not understand Australian accents either, because the word bike is almost uniformly used instead of bake, as in, On your mark, get set, bike! And instead of days, they type dies. Someone is said to be making catastrophe cookies, and what the heck is middle finger olive oil? Another baker says (Im) choosing Jesus peppermint oil/Rather than the government. Its an orchid in my mouth, one judge says. Its a nice cookie/But its not an insect, is another criticism. I have found a whole new loopy way of watching television. Its beyond Seuss-ical. Its nonsensical. Who knew misunderstanding could be so much fun? nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com PLEASE IS A LIGHT PORN PROCESS AND MAKING IT IS A DELICATE PROCESS A FEW SECONDS TOO LONG ON THE HEAT.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An ongoing problem with a co-worker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decisionmaking this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counterproductive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those oncetesty relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. SEE ANSWERS, C11SEE ANSWERS, C11

How should he play the hand? The actual declarer won the diamond lead with the ace, drew two rounds of trumps, cashed the A-K of spades and ruffed a spade. He then cashed the king of diamonds, led a trump to the king and ruffed dummy's last spade. South now exited with the nine of diamonds, hoping West would have to win the trick and return a club. This method of play might well have succeeded, but unfortunately West had very shrewdly disposed of his jack of diamonds on the second diamond lead. As a result, East won the nine with the ten and returned a club, and declarer went down one. Souths plan was good, but not good enough. He pursued the right idea in stripping the dummy of spades so that he could later try to put West on lead with a diamond and thus avoid a club finesse. His execution, though, left something to be desired. South gave the show away when he started ruffing dummys spades. He made it too easy for West to see that an endplay was in the offing if he retained the jack of diamonds. The best play is to win the opening diamond lead with the king and cash the ace at trick two. West would have to be extremely farsighted to play his jack at this point, and if he makes the normal play of the four at trick two, declarer winds up making the slam as described above. As in many similar hands, the key play by declarer should be made before the opponents have any notion of what is going on. In the actual case, it would be almost impossible for West to know at trick two that the critical point of the play had already been reached.

Rated PG-13.The Light Between Oceans (Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz) Nice performances from Mr. Fassbender, Ms. Vikander and Ms. Weisz highlight this epic story that sees a couple (Mr. Fassbender and Ms. Vikander) adopt a baby presuming the girls parents were dead, only to be faced with the decision of returning the child upon learning the mother (Ms. Weisz) is still alive. The beautiful Australian coastline punctuates the isolation and desperation of the story, and best of all, the premise offers a great what would you do? post-screening conversation starter. Rated PG-13.Bridget Joness Baby (Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey) The conclusion to the Bridget Jones trilogy follows single Bridget (Ms. Zellweger) as she tries to figure out which guy (Mr. Firth or Mr. Dempsey) is the father of her unborn baby. Its funny, and a fitting end to the only romantic comedy trilogy in recent memory. Rated R.Morgan 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.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.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.

YesWhat a cute little confection Storks is. The animated tale from the studio behind The Lego Movie has plenty for adults and will keep kids smiling. Theres nothing special about it, yet everything about it is enjoyable. For years, storks delivered babies to humans. They had their own factory to make babies and everything. It was good business. But times caught up with them, technology evolved and about 20 years ago they left the baby business. Now they make package deliveries for Amazon, err, cornerstore.com, and business is booming. With the boss (Kelsey Grammer) about to retire, top delivery bird Junior (Andy Samberg) is asked to take over. All Junior has to do is one thing: Fire Tulip (Kate Crown), a human girl living with the storks because her delivery tracker was broken. Junior cant bring himself to fire her, so he sticks her in the desolate mailroom, which just happens to be the defunct baby factory. When a resourceful boy named Nate (Anton Starkman) with neglectful parents (Ty Burrell and Jennifer Aniston) asks the storks for a baby brother and Tulip makes one, Junior and Tulip have no choice but to deliver the baby. Misdirection, rivals, a pack of wolves and more get in the way. Its a surprise to learn Storks was written and co-directed (with Doug Sweetland) by Nicholas Stoller, the director of crass boy comedies such as Neighbors and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It turns out the sequences in Neighbors in which parents (played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) struggle to care for their baby were inspired by Mr. Stollers own experiences, and sure enough, the difficulties of caring for a baby are on full display in Storks as well. But theres more than that.Mr. Stollers story also hones in on the precious cuteness of infants and how theyre cherished with ooohs and awwws when at their most adorable. If you love babies, youll find this irresistible. If youre not a baby person, and/or dont like birds, the movie is still full of funny one-liners and consistent humor. The wolf pack gets big laughs for its endless resourcefulness as its members work together and with its leaders voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, we expect nothing less. Mr. Samberg is solid as Junior, who means well but cant get out of his own way. Credit is due Stephen Kramer Glickman for providing an annoying voice to Juniors rival, a pigeon named Toady, yet finding a way to make him endearing rather than grating. Kids will enjoy the crisp 3D animation, imagination and innocence of the story, and parents will relate on two levels: Nates workaholic parents coming around to the joys of quality time with their son, and Junior and Tulip struggling to care for the baby theyre transporting. Were usually lucky if animated films connect with adults at all; to have it happen in two distinct ways makes Storks a real treat. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Ty Burrells character in the lm, Mr. Gardner, is a real estate agent, just like the actors character on Modern Family.

Neither a touring nor traveling film festival, Manhattan Short (subtitled One World, One Week, One Festival) is the worlds first global film festival. Founding director Nicholas Mason says it is the first film festival to ever take place in all 50 states of the U.S.A. On the website, he outlines its history: In September 1998, he projected 16 short films on a screen affixed to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street in New York City. Before an audience of about 300 New Yorkers, the Manhattan Short Film Festival was born. It moved to Union Square Park the next year. Aside from celebrity judges including Susan Sarandon, Eric Stoltz, Laura Linney, Roger Corman and Tim Robbins, it remained a pretty low-key event, Mr. Mason says. The 2001 festival was scheduled for Sept. 23, just 12 days after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. In the aftermath of the attacks, Union Square Park had become a shrine, a place where people gathered to grieve the loss of loved ones. Satellite trucks surrounded the park, broadcasting news from Ground Zero. Mr. Mason recalls that officials from the New York City Parks Department urged him, no matter what, to proceed with Manhattan Short as scheduled. We did, he says, and the festival received a lot of attention in the global media. A direct result from this was, the following year we received double the amount of film entries than we had in previous years. By 2004, the festival had morphed into DVDs of the finalists being screened in seven U.S. cities over the course of one week in September. It was the first year that voting was handed over to the audience. The you be the judge concept was a huge success, Mr. Mason says. For 2005, 72 art house cinemas in 32 states screened the finalists. The next year, about two dozen cinemas in Europe joined the effort. I have become a firm believer that its the public that creates stars, Mr. Mason says. Be it a film, a tune, a book, a new game, whatever ... Get it out to the public, get it in the right place, the right forum, and the public will transform it and take it to a place one would never have imagined. This years finalists were selected from among 600 entries from filmmakers in 48 countries. Total viewing time for the 2016 Manhattan Short Film Festival is 2 hours, 20 minutes. Heres a brief description of each film in the running: Bravoman (Russia, 18 minutes, 25 seconds) Andrey is paid to rouse theatergoers from their seats, a job that turns him into a cynic until he meets a woman whose appreciation of the stage brings her to tears. Carousel (England, 6 minutes) A man doles out a torrent of accumulated wisdom to a teen with unexpected results. Ella Gets a Promotion? (USA, 9 minutes) A talented and loyal employee, finally gets the promotion she deserves. Or does she? A humorous look at duplicitous behavior in todays corporate America. Gorilla (France, 14 minutes, 5 seconds) In 1952 H ollywood, Henry Corso performs as a costumed gorilla in horror and adventure movies. For Jungle Jenna, he must terrorize the leading actress lost in a fake jungle. But scaring the woman he desires is going to be particularly tricky for the gorilla man. Hold On (Netherlands, 20 minutes) A talented young cellist suddenly develops stage fright after a string breaks during an important performance. I Am A Pencil (Australia, 5 minutes, 40 seconds) Freedom of expression is the star of this animated film inspired by the 3 million people who marched in protest on Jan. 11, 2015, three days after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France. Kaputt (Germany, 7 minutes) This animated documentary about Hoheneck, the main prison for women in former East Germany, includes the voices of two former inmates. Overtime (Australia, 9 minutes) Its getting late on a Friday night and Ralph is keen to get out of the office, but the boss wont let him. No big deal, right? Its just that the full moon is rising and Ralph is a werewolf. The Last Journey of the Enigmatic Paul W.R. (France, 12 minutes, 35 seconds) Mankinds only hope of salvation rests upon the shoulders of the enigmatic Paul W.R., the most talented astronaut of his generation. Mysteriously, a few hours before the mission launch, Paul disappears. The Tunnel (Norway, 12 minutes, 35 seconds) A family returning by car from holiday is stuck in a traffic jam that might put a permanent end to their trip, courtesy of the government.

A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SEPTEMBER 2016 INSIDE: What Ive Learned as a FutureMaker 3 Investing in our Community 4 our GIVING MATTERSIn this issue of Our Community, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation is turning over these pages to the FutureMakers Coalition. As the backbone organization for the regional coalition dedicated to transforming the Southwest Florida workforce, we want to be sure the community knows what is happening inside the coalition and its resolve to create a great place to live, learn, work and play. If you already call yourself a FutureMaker you were probably part of the coalitions pep rally kickoff last year or have signed the wall somewhere along the way. Just like any pep rally, a big game is not far behind. Over the last year nearly 200 diverse FutureMakers Coalition partners have participated in building a regional framework and developing outcomes for success. It hasnt always been easy. As you read these pages, please know that this is not OUR work but that of the partners who make up the FutureMakers Coalition. What the foundation does well is bring people together around a cause, organize them, connect them to resources, collect the important data and communicate both success stories and challenges to the region. This report is part of our role. Early childhood specialists, educators, higher education administrators, economic developers, public servants, business owners, and caring citizens our partners in the coalition are the real experts. They do what they do best but are willing to come together to create collective change and impact. This coalition works together to find ways to help Southwest Floridians get ready, get in and get done with a postsecondary degree or certification and then get connected to a career. That is how you transform a workforce. In this report you will see lessons learned, financial investments made and early success stories of the work. I want to thank everyone who has called themselves a FutureMaker this year. For those of you learning of the coalition for the first time, the pep rally continues and we welcome you to this important work. Visit futuremakerscoalition.com to learn more about becoming involved. Here we go, Sarah OWENPresident & CEO Southwest Florida Community FoundationReporting InM A FUTUREMAKER. During the last year, educators, government and business leaders, students, private citizens and philanthropists have added FutureMaker to their credentials, expressing their support and involvement with the FutureMakers Coalition and its mission to improve the quality and sustainability of Southwest Floridas workforce through post-secondary education. Since its launch, the coalition has engaged 225 leaders from Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties who consider being a FutureMaker an integral part of their identity.Its very powerful when everyone in the room steps up and says, Im a FutureMaker, observes teambuilding expert Jack Hess, executive director of the Institute for Coalition Building who has been coaching the local coalition the past year. Its a role they take with them outside of a FutureMakers meeting. Thats phenomenal. The coalitions goal is to transform the regional workforce by increasing the number of working-aged adults with a degree, certificate or other high-quality credential from 27 percent to 40 percent by 2025.IN THE MAKINGOUR FUTURESEE FUTURE, 4 Together, were better. Our work during the next nine years will build upon the past year a year of finding strength in our numbers and our members, building a better coalition and creating the framework to continue developing the FutureMakers Coalition and transforming Southwest Floridas workforce.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SEPTEMBER 2016 2 | our We all tend to think of economic development as selling our sunshine and providing monetary incentives to get people to come here. It turns out theres no question the workforce is an extremely important component for any community. Whether a business is moving its corporate headquarters here or supporting a building, we have to make sure we have the workers with the skills to staff these businesses. The workforce is also changing as baby boomers retire and millennials are coming into positions of responsibility. We need to attract millennials with nightlife and other things millennials value. Fortunately, Florida has the natural resources that appeal to millennials. Gary Griffin, president, B &I, Fort Myers, and board member of the Horizon Council and Southwest Florida Economic Development AllianceOur presentation about workforce data in Southwest Florida (to the Florida College Access Network) lifted the veil of secrecy. It showed other organizations and education providers in different regions of the state how they can replicate what we did by showing the skill gaps and the educational requirements needed to fill these jobs. Florida does a better job than anyone in making this information available. John D. Meyer, dean, School of Business & Technology, Florida SouthWestern State College, and co-author Southwest Florida Workforce Overview StudyRegionalism is the KeyOur goal in collective leadership and coalition building is not to go out and create another new program. In our experience its better to start with whats already taking place. The FutureMakers Coalition is really trying to work at the regional level which adds to the complexity. In just a year weve seen a number of initiatives underway in many of the counties. The coalition is doing a nice job and is providing the backbone and support to make it happen. John Burnett, chief executive officer, Community Education CoalitionPartnerships Matter!The Certified Nursing Assistant Program was created on the basis of two Lee Memorial Health System missions: to reach the unemployed and the under-employed of Lee County; to fill the Certified Nursing Assistant openings in the system. Combining these two missions, we were able to come up with the CNA Program partnership with CareerSource and the Community Foundation so individuals could attend Fort Myers Technical and Cape Coral Technical Colleges CNA certification courses. The ultimate goal is to gain employment at LMHS. We are appreciative of the community partnerships in Southwest Florida that have made these programs a reality!Lindsay Tesniarz, PHR, SHRM-CP Human Resources Project Specialist, & Michelle Zech, Human Resources Business Partner, Lee Memorial Health System Cape Coral HospitalPower Hour gives students more ownership and independence to design their day and have time to participate in clubs, meet with teachers for help, work on homework or participate in a FAFSA workshop. Lucinda Kelley, director of Exceptional Student Education & Student Services, Hendry County School DistrictBefore I attended the Regional Student Summit I felt I didnt need to voice my opinions. After the experience I was confident to talk to my counselors and principal about my concerns and opinions. The summit also gave me the confidence to apply for the International Baccalaureate program and encouraged me to go out and make bigger decisions for me in life. Hopefully there will be another summit because it will help a lot of students who think they dont have a right to express themselves. Francisca St. Germain, junior and IB student at Cape Coral High School GIVING STUDENTS A VOICE Lifting the VeilEmPOWERing StudentsWorkforce is the New Incentive p s s more Takeaways: The FutureMakers Coalition is working to transform the workforce in Southwest Florida and promote the knowledge and skills needed for success in the workplace and in life. The Coalition was formed around existing regional collaborations between diverse stakeholders (from cradle to career) and citizens all committed to the regions educational and economic success. I was invited to participate in the FutureMakers Coalitions program because of my involvement with the Charlotte County Voice of Local Teens, a two-year countywide effort that also gives a voice to students. CCVOLT engages teens from all Charlotte County high schools, and like the regional summit allows us to see the differences we can make and how to accomplish our goals, whether staying in touch with local community members or simply starting service projects. With a bit of help, anything is possible. Ali Medico, a student in Charlotte County #FUTUREISBRIGHT
SEPTEMBER 2016 | | A special supplement produced b y the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | 3 our May the Workforce Be with YouThe 2015 Southwest Florida Workforce Overview Study highlighted the different shortterm and longer-term occupations and shortages in Southwest Florida.

Haley Glover, strategy director, Lumina FoundationFinding a CureWith the FutureMakers Coalitions focus on the cradle-to-career pathway, were not treating a symptom but finding a cure to show folks how to take a step up in life regarding education and the skills needed in Southwest Florida. Were transforming the region to attract the types of careers and jobs people want so they can grow up and live in Southwest Florida and have the opportunity to say this is my forever home. Eric Berglund, president, Southwest Florida Economic Development AllianceLumina Coaches John Burnett and Jack Hess helped us explore additional ways to attract industries and businesses to the Glades Training Center during a steering committee teleconference. FutureMakers whole goal here is to bring certification and training to Glades County, and the coaches helped us explore funding and grants to operate the facility. Paul Carlisle, Glades County ManagerShifting the Culture A true partnership realizes everyone is collectively responsible for the outcomes. When you create together, there is better buy-in. You have to have the community and private sector at the table. Jack Hess, executive director, Institute for Coalition BuildingAs Director of Business Services for CareerSource Southwest Florida, I am proud to be a FutureMaker! CareerSource Southwest Florida and the FutureMakers Coalition share common goals. Increasing post-secondary education completion and certifications will help ensure businesses have the talent they need to grow and thrive and individuals have the capacity to earn self-sufficient wages.

OUR COMMUNITY IS A PUBLICATION OF THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION8771 College Parkway Building 2, Suite 201 Phone: (239) 274-5900www.FloridaCommunity.comThe Board of Trustees of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation is made up of community leaders who are representative of the communities we serve. Trustees approve all grants made by the Community Foundation and ensure that the organization meets all laws and legal requirements.| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SEPTEMBER 2016 4 | our 4 | Copyright FROM PAGE 1 Meet the Original FutureMakersThree years ago the Southwest Florida Community Foundation brought together education, business and nonprofit leaders around increasing the number of regional high school seniors completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. We were stunned to learn more than $100 million in Pell Grants and other financial aid went unclaimed by Florida high school students in 2012. The inaugural FutureMakers movement focused on increasing FAFSA completion at eight high schools throughout the region with great results. The insight and perseverance of these organizations and individuals Marshall Bower of the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Joe Paterno from CareerSource Southwest Florida, Susan McManus with Champions for Learning and Joy Maher of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Sun Coast shaped and inspired the FutureMakers Coalition and the goal of improving the workforce and the lives of Southwest Floridians through post-secondary attainment. O CA year ago, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which is serving as the backbone organization for the FutureMakers Coalition, convened the coalitions first meeting of FutureMakers Champions, key influencers committed to this one shared goal. Through the Champions vision and support, the coalition collected baseline data; compiled a numerical outlook detailing Southwest Floridas existing and future workforce shortage and talent gap; established 15 regionally vetted outcomes across five collaborative teams; and created six outc ome-related partner programs and projects. The data has been very important because it shows where the jobs are and the necessary degree, certification and credential requirements to fill these positions, said Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. The coalition is using this information to make a positive impact on the workforce and economy and identify well-paying careers.Learning Together as FutureMakersThe coalition has been listening and learning, investing in programs throughout the five-county region to: Strengthen Collier County Public Schools program for high school interns; Understand how to better prepare Southwest Florida residents to receive financial assistance; Assemble a collaborative program that offers the necessary skills to begin a career in healthcare as a certified nursing assistant; and Award grant funding to ensure the academic success of Glades County middle school students. These are just a few of the many projects supported. Coalition partnerships have broadened geographically and participation has incresed from businesses, early childhood educators, individual influencers and funders.Local and National SupportThe coalition depends on its local, regional and national support system to strengthen its programs. As a member of Lumina Foundations Community Partnership for Attainment, the coalition received financial and programmatic support, tapping into the expertise of leaders like Mr. Hess and John Burnett, chief executive officer of the Community Education Coalition. These coaches have been instrumental in guiding us through a regional collaborative teambuilding process as well as shaping specific plans, including sharing their experience and insight to develop an action plan for the new Glades Training Facility. Lumina also connected Florida Gulf Coast University to the Student African American Brotherhood, an organization dedicated to helping all black males on educational campuses to take full advantage of their academic years. Luminas support is a reminder these communities are not alone, says Haley Glover, strategy director for Lumina Foundation. There are other people they can call and examples of successes throughout the country. Southwest Florida is a great example of a region working together and leveraging individual strengths across a broad and diverse geographical area. From Luminas annual Stronger Nation report and through local data, the coalition learned there is no longer a traditional student. Rather, those pursuing degrees and industry certifications are often first-generation students working full-time while balancing coursework and caring for families. To create the needed workforce, the system has to adapt to these changed needs. The partners understand reaching first-generation college and underrepresented students is a major challenge locally and across the nation. Nearly 61 percent of the students attending the coalitions inaugural Regional Student Summit represented first-generation college hopefuls who now know they have support in their post-secondary endeavors. The partners have developed programs to address a general workforce deficiency in foundational skills, first identified by the Horizon Council in Lee County. Now that work is shaping a regional approach to enhancing active listening, critical thinking/problem solving, interpersonal skills, teamwork and work ethic to increase success in the workplace. This is another great example of how a good idea in one part of the region can take off and have the potential for greater impact throughout region teamwork, Ms. LeSage says.Communicating with our CommunityThe FutureMakers Coalition has been persistent in communicating a message of collective leadership to transform the workforce and promote a more sustainable economy. More people in our community now fully understand the impact of a better educated workforce to our future economic viability and sustainability, says Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. More importantly, traditional and nontraditional students know were walking alongside them and supporting their post-secondary success. The FutureMakers Coalition is a national leader in using the power of communications and the media to keep its message at the forefront, says Luminas Ms. Glover. During our big convening network, Southwest Florida presented a session on its communication tactics and the results. Teamwork and a collective approach to helping our residents achieve postsecondary success are the foundation of FutureMakers. Together, were better, says Ms. Owen. Our work during the next nine years will build upon the past year a year of finding strength in our numbers and our members, building a better coalition and creating the framework to continue developing the FutureMakers Coalition and transforming Southwest Floridas workforce. Southwest Florida has made really great strides and has really contributed to our network in a number of ways, says Ms. Glover. Were excited about everything theyve accomplished and are excited for the next nine years. O C Reinvesting in Our Future, Strengthening Our Community The FutureMakers Coalition has received tremendous support from the Southwest Florida community during the past year. Through monetary donations totaling more than $177,000 and gifts of time, venues and services, we have funded education attainment programs in school districts throughout the five-county region and have convened several FutureMakers partners to identify and provide scholarship funding for potential certified nursing assistant candidates through technical college certification. Its just the beginning of the coalitions sweeping regional work. Heres how the money was granted in schools, communities and agencies to transform the workforce: Glades Education Foundation to support the introduction of AVID About Success, a mentoring and academic success program reaching 97 students in sixth through ninth grades this school year. Southwest Florida Economic Development Alliance to expand and replicate promising programs already in place by local businesses dedicated to increasing the skill level of their existing employees by supporting attainment of degrees, certificates and other high quality credentials. Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board to align economic development and workforce needs with programs offered at the Glades Training Center. Lee County School District to improve perception and increase awareness of the benefits and career opportunities available through technical education. Cape Coral and Fort Myers technical colleges received scholarship funding. A $300,000 donation from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation to the FutureMakers Coalition through the Southwest Florida Community Foundation provided: A grant to a regional Free Application for Federal Student Aid completion campaign. A grant to the iWILL Mentorship Foundation to create mentoring opportunities between teens in Dunbar and the Fort Myers Police Department by working together to recondition bicycles and riding together during bike patrols. A grant to pay the wages of five of 16 Collier County high school student interns this summer. The remaining funds could support as many as 10 internships during this school year.

Storage consisted of built-in corners, shelf units and chests, often made to fit under the odd space under the eaves or the stairs. They did not use the wall as part of the cabinet. A piece was made so it could be moved. Folk-art cupboards of all kinds made before Victorian times are popular with collectors. This past May, Garths Auctions of Ohio sold the under-thestairs cupboard pictured here. It was made of pine and painted a mustard color finish. The three doors in the front are made with applied molding to match the panels on the side. The inside has a red wash. The doors open so that all of the extra space inside can be used. The color and condition made this cabinet a popular auction item. Even though there was no makers identity, it sold for $1,140, several times estimate. An oddly shaped piece like this often sells for a low price. Q: My piece of Niloak pottery has some stains that look like drips, possibly from furniture polish. Is there a way to clean this? A: Niloak pottery was made at the Hyten Brothers Pottery in Benton, Ark., from 1910-18 and again from 192147. The pottery was made from Kaolin, a soft, white clay (Niloak is kaolin spelled backwards). To clean your piece, use a soft cloth dampened with water. If the drips are furniture polish, they might be hard to remove since the polish probably contains oil, wax or another water-resistant ingredient. Some people recommend using a mild solution of water and dish detergent. Dont soak the pottery, avoid rubbing the surface too hard and be sure to blot it dry. Q: I bought a Hall 6-cup ceramic teapot at an estate sale. The bottom is stamped with pattern No. 0113, and the color is maroon with a gold patterned detail. There also is M8 stamped on the bottom rim. When was this made? A: You have a Hollywood teapot first made by Hall in the 1920s. It was made in 4-, 5-, 6and 8-cup sizes in solid colors as well as with decal decorations. At one time, Hall was the worlds largest manufacturer of teapots. The value of your teapot is $25-$35. Tip: Dont wear rubber gloves when polishing silver. Vinyl is OK. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Signature Chefs Auction helps advance positive outcomes for premature babies BY KATHY GREYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIn its 27th year, the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction in Southwest Florida isnt just about fine food, fun and frivolity. Its about saving lives. The culinary evening takes place Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, with more than a dozen chefs from Naples and Immokalee to Fort Myers and Sanibel Island Myers participating. Premature birth is the No. 1 killer of babies and children under the age of 5 worldwide. The March of Dimes intends to end premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality, and its funds support research and programs to meet that goal. What sets the Signature Chefs Auction apart is not only its 27-year staying power as a notable nonprofit event, but the vital impact the March of Dimes mission has on the community. Stu and Sasha Williams of Enterprise Holdings in Fort Myers are this years co-chairs. The couple has an inextricably vested interest in the cause: Mrs. Williams was born premature. My mom was a nurse and ended up being a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse because of that, Mrs. Williams says. It came full circle. This was my way of paying it forward. Dean Piccirillo, a senior financial advisor and shareholder with HBKS Wealth Advisors, serves as the board chairman for the March of Dimes Southwest Coast Division. In 2007, he and his wife suffered the loss of their daughter at birth due to birth defects. My wife Monica and I do this in honor of the memory of our daughter, Gabriella, in the hopes that other families will not have to experience what we did, Mr. Piccirillo says. Pat and Erin Gillespies experience with the premature birth of their first child, Ellie, has become a Lee Memorial NICU success story. Mrs. Gillespie and Ellie were featured in Lee Memorial Health Systems ad campaign, appearing on billboards along major thoroughfares in Southwest Florida. With Mrs. Gillespie suffering a variant of preeclampsia, Ellie Gillespie was delivered two months early, at 3 pounds, 4 ounces. She fought like a champ. When she was born, the Gillespies lived in Lee County. Ellie is 6 now and the family lives in Tallahassee. She is in first grade and is at the top of her class, says Mrs. Gillespie. Funding from the March of Dimes plays such an important role in helping babies survive, and we are blessed to work with the March of Dimes in our community to save babies one step at a time. >> What: 27th annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction >> Where: Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, Bonita Springs >> When: 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28 >> Tickets: $200 >> Info: signaturechefs.marchofdimes.org

His movies are so varied and his roles so eclectic; I cant wait to see what he has planned next. Janet R., via emailA: Over the summer, John held a panel at Megacon in Orlando where he addressed that question. Currently, his Edgar Cayce project is still in development and is getting closer to fruition. Hes dreamed of making this biopic for at least a decade, and I cant wait to see the fruits of his labor. He also is slated to star in Southern Fury with Nicolas Cage and Misfortune with Willa Fitzgerald.Another project hed like to explore is a remake of John Hustons 1972 boxing movie Fat City, which starred Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges. He told us: I dont think its good to do a remake of a movie unless you think you can do it differently or can add something to it. Ive been a boxing fan for a long time, and I thought, Man, Im 49, so Id like to do one while I can still do it. So I thought, If I could do Fat City, that would be really cool. It was done in that sort of Technicolor 0s era when they started to make everything super-bright. At the time it was thought to be cool, but it actually looks dated now. But I thought that might be a cool remake to do.Q: I could not get enough of Netflixs Stranger Things this summer. Please tell me well get another season. Scott F., Conyers, Ga.A: I am thrilled to report that there indeed will be a season two of the popular fantasy/thriller/mystery series, which is set in the summer of 1984. It centers on a group of kids who set out to save their presumeddead friend, with the help of a new friend with supernatural powers. Season two, which will premiere in 2017 (most likely again in the summer), takes place in the fall of that same year, encompasses nine episodes and will continue of the adventures of season one. Q: Is it true that this is the last season for Pretty Little Liars? Carrie D., via emailA: The shows creator and executive producer Marlene King confirmed that this seventh season will be the dramas last. The midseason final aired Aug. 30, with the final 10 episodes set to premiere beginning in April.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 C33 THE DISH The Dish: Bacon & Eggs The Place: Midtown Kitchen + Bar 2110 Ninth St. N. The Price: $9 The Menu: Check Midtowns Facebook page The Details: We had plans with friends that fell through and while we were sad our foursome turned into a twosome, avoiding a meal at a chain steakhouse was a welcome break. Not that the food in these establishments isnt reliably delicious, theyre just not our bag when were left to our own devices. Plopping our backsides at a bar and ordering a swath of selections from the appetizer menu is more our style, and the only problem at Midtown Kitchen + Bar was deciding which one of our choices to highlight here. While the octopus and white beans put up a fight, I have to say the deviled eggs with tomato jam and candied bacon were too good to let pass unnoticed. They were cold, sweet, savory, creamy and highly snackable. I washed it down with a Prosecco and Campari spritz while we congratulated ourselves on successfully salvaging the night. Bravo, Midtown. One More Thing: The octopus and white beans were really delicious and a great choice if you want a dish thats a touch more filling without having to venture into the entrees.

C34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Jimmys Bait-N-Tackle Pubgrille, 11100 Tamiami Trail N.; 434-0000 For a trip back to the down-home feel of 1970s Naples, consider a meal at Jimmys Bait-N-Tackle. Run by Naples native Jimmy McDonnell, the sprawling bar and restaurant in front of the Ramada on U.S. 41 is filled with photos of Naples of yesteryear with a good measure of nautical kitsch. Dress is ultracasual and the food is Florida based, featuring local fish and a playful menu. From the Chum (appetizers) selections, we liked the cracked conch (pounded thin and served with sweet guava remoulade) and a well-rendered cup of Fines Famous Conch Chowder. Blackened snapper was flavorful and cooked just right. Onion rings were tasty and crisp. The Tamiami tacos (made with grilled mahi, cilantro, cumin, slaw and pickled jalapenos) were outstanding. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Mediterrano, 336 13th Ave. S., Naples; 261-7498 There arent many places where the owner greets and seats you, but thats the level of hospitality found at this lovely little restaurant filled with soothing aquamarine hues that bring to mind the beauty of Mediterranean waters. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried t omato butter and olive oil as a starter. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend sharing. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass (in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds) was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, was a refreshing finish. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed May 2016 Sophias Ristorante Italiano, 3545 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 597-0744 Tucked between a Harley-Davidson dealership and a Hawthorne Suites sits a gem of a restaurant that seems as if its been lifted right out of Italy. Sophias is filled with lovely Tuscan browns and golds with mosaic patterns on tables and floors. The staff is uniformly gracious, and some also come with charming Italian accents. Try not to overload on the house-made breads served with herb-studded olive oil. The fried calamari was excellent but I could have made a meal of the tender-crisp rapini and well-seasoned sausage with polenta. The zuppe de pesce is a remarkable mountain of seafood, but veal is a specialty here. The osso buco, a special that evening, was fork-tender and delicious with a side of porcini risotto. Sea bass with clams, caperberries and housemade linguini was just right. For dessert, the house-made tiramisu was light, delicious and ample for two. The wine list is noteworthy as well. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed December 2015 Tartine & Tartelette, 11121 Health Park Blvd., Naples; 888-1151 This cozy little restaurant just off Goodlette-Frank and Immokalee roads might seem an unlikely setting for excellent French fare, but thats what you will find here, along with ample parking, a friendly staff and an attractive dining room. Owners Axelle and Jean Bechu have transformed the space with soothing tones of silver-gray and white. A millefeuille (a thousand leaves) of smoked salmon and apples was a gorgeous and delicious dish of whisperthin slices of Granny Smith apples alternating with rich smoked salmon. A vol au vent of the sea held bits of chopped seafood in cream sauce beneath a tender puff pastry. The coq au vin was a classic rendition served in its own little pot. And scallops in grapefruit butter were exceptionally good, the scallops perfectly cooked then touched with butter and bits of pink grapefruit served with splendid roasted tomatoes. A warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream and slivered almonds was a perfect finish to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Veranda E, Escalante Hotel, 290 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 325-3474 A secret garden hidden just off bustling Fifth Avenue South, Veranda E is an outstanding establishment serving creative food in a lush, subtropical setting. When the weather is good, reserve a table in the courtyard where tables are dressed in white linens and overlook the hotels pool. Do not miss the Veranda E calamari, a dish that might have ruined me for all other calamari preparations. Done kung pao style, it is tenderized and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with peanuts, peppers, chives and a spicy-sweet sauce. Also good were the Gulf shrimp with white stone ground corn grits and Creole bacon sauce; salad with Asian pear, Humboldt Fog cheese, organic baby greens and walnut vinaigrette; Hawaiian salmon with strawberry-basil relish and verjus rouge; boneless beef short ribs; and house-made lemon ginger ice cream with fresh berries. Chef Bryan Sutton knows his way around the kitchen and also has a thriving organic garden from which he plucks herbs and veggies. Full bar.

CUISINE REVIEWBills delivers much more than reasonably priced steak, seafoodOne of the questions I get a lot is, Where can we go for nice dinner and dancing? I havent had a good answer for a while, but I do now: Bills Steak and Seafood on the East Trail just across from 21 Spices by Chef Asif. Bills looks kind of plain outside but theres lots of parking and valet service as well, which foreshadows the thoughtful service youll encounter inside. Someone will open the door to greet you (and to bid you farewell). A smiling hostess or two will welcome you. And even on a Saturday night without a reservation we were able to land a comfortable, nicely upholstered booth with a good view of the band and dance floor. We quickly realized why there were booths available: Most of those who were there wanted to dance and be close to the Manhattan Connection, the two-person group who performed an impressive range of songs from Chattanooga Choo Choo to Happy with some Barry White, Jim Croce, Sade, Neil Diamond, Fats Domino and a lot of other danceable tunes in between. People danced. People sang. The atmosphere was festive and casual just right for kicking back or kicking up your heels and adjusting your attitude on a steamy Saturday night. A server assistant filled our water glasses as we sat down. Our ebullient server, Frank, arrived moments later for drink orders. He was friendly and ever-vigilant, despite the fact that it was prime time and he was busy. There are a lot of wines available by the glass and my companion was happy to find Meiomi pinot noir among them. I tried the Titos Moscow Mule, a refreshing blend of Titos vodka, limejuice, simple syrup and Goslings ginger beer. Chef/owner Bill Sarro has created a New England-themed seafood menu with plenty of meat and value-priced combos as well. You like creamy New England clam chowder? Its available. Prefer the Manhattan tomato-based variety? You can have that, too. There are a dozen salads, raw bar choices, lots of appetizers and entrees plus specials such as surf and turf (chowder, a salad, a 1-pound lobster and 6-ounce filet, baked potato and corn on the cob, all for $33.99). The nightly tuna special comes on pasta or with potatoes or rice again, any way the customer wants it. That theme was a constant throughout our dinner. I tried the surf and turf special. My salad arrived first, fresh and cold, with carrot ribbons on top, olives, cucumbers, red onions and pistachio vinaigrette (offered with the beet salad but served with my regular salad when I asked for it). Next up: a bowl of New England clam chowder full of big chunks of potato and clams and seasoned just right. My companion ordered the seafoodstuffed mushrooms ($9), four beefy mushrooms stuffed with what was billed as house-made seafood stuffing. It was mostly breading but had a bit of seafood flavor and each mushroom was topped with melted mozzarella. We both liked the soup better and there was plenty to share. For his entre, my companion chose the seafood casserole ($28), which arrived in a super-hot tureen full of scallops, shrimp, chunks of lobster and bits of haddock with a creamy sauce and breadcrumb topping. It was a simple, comforting dish. On the side was a large mound of perfectly tender-crisp veggies: zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, green and yellow beans, which were so much better than usual. We theorized that they had not been left on a steam table someplace to become a soggy mess and were more likely cooked to order. A small sweet potato (rice or baked potato were other options) was also good. I faced a somewhat intimidating amount of food with a lobster, steak, corn and a good-sized baked potato. The lobster was mostly cracked, but I was supplied with a cracker and small fork, both of which came in handy. Our server even offered to help me, but I did fine on my own. A 1-pounder is on the small side for lobster but is just right when there are a lot of other things to eat. The meat was sweet and tender and easy to remove from the shell. The steak was fair, cooked to order but it could have used a bit more seasoning, as the meat itself didnt have a lot of flavor. Both the potato and corn were fine. I spied a prime rib at a nearby table topped with onion rings that looked like it might have been a better bet. We werent really craving dessert, but we were enjoying the music and watching the dancers so we ordered one slice of lemon mascarpone cake ($7). It consisted of layers of yellow cake with lemon mascarpone frosting and a drizzle of green sauce that might have been lime but was applied for looks more than flavor. A dollop of real whipped cream was a nice touch. The cake was moist and not overly sweet. Not bad, but we were told its coming off the menu. The food at Bills was good and plentiful and reasonably priced. It wont knock your socks off, but it will leave you full and, judging from the number of regulars we saw around us, satisfied. Add in the great staff, music and the dancing and you have the makings of a most enjoyable evening.

Residences priced from $1.3 million13910 Old Coast Road, Naples, FL 34110 KaleaBay.com 239-793-0110 Some say three is a crowd. With 3 clubside pools, we see it as just Right.
Kalea Bays community amenities popular with buyersResidential tower hits penthouse floorIf the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then this fabulous amenity of Kalea Bay will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed threebedroom plus den/three-and-a-halfbath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic site as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants 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. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Two of the top rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Wilson. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year and will coincide with the anticipated move-in of the residents in the first tower. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time construction crews are working on the towers penthouse floor. 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. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/fourbath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-foot, 2-inch high ceilings 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 said spectacular views are available to every resident, no matter which floor they live on. With all our rooftop amenities, including our sky lounge, pool and open-air fitness center, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves that surround us, and of course, the beaches. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road, off Vanderbilt Drive, at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

The Isles of Collier Preserve by Minto recognized with prestigious best in American Living AwardThe Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples by Minto Communities recently received a prestigious Silver Award at the Best in American Living Awards (BALA) for Best Mixed Community. Minto is one of only three recipients to be recognized in this category in the entire country. BALA awards are presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The nations premier award program, the BALA awards recognize design excellence and spotlight the nations most creative and innovative builders, remodelers, architects, residential and building designers, developers, land planners and interior designers. All aspects of The Isles of Collier Preserve were inspired by nature and informed by historic references to the classic coastal architecture of Old Naples. Over half of the 2,400 acres are dedicated to lakes, nature preserves and natural habitat. The design of The Isles Club was inspired by the charming coastal cottage style of the original Naples Beach Hotel built in 1888 as a 16-room inn. Like the historic hotel, The Isles Club is distinguished by a stylized cupola and large awning-shaded front porch. Overlooking the sparkling Cypress Waterway, The Isles Club includes an array of active lifestyle and wellness amenities. Residents and friends gather here for social functions, swimming in the stunning resortstyle pool, tennis, pickleball and workouts in the state-of-the-art fitness center. A lushly landscaped event courtyard, yoga lawn and kayak launch provide additional opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Featured homes include the Poinciana two-story coach home priced at $510,290 and the Mimosa villa home priced at $549,260.
