COMMENTARYPulling backUnfortunately for Americans, the most crucial debate unfolding in the final weeks of the 2016 election has gone almost unmentioned: certainly not Donald Trumps misogyny and business failures or Hillary Clintons lost emails. Not climate change or immigration or tax equality or nuclear proliferation or the strategies that direct American troops overseas. Do we continue to use them and lose them while futilely shaping new societies from old cultures with no experience of democracy? Each of those problems springs like a thorn bush from the bed of the key issue: our role among nations. What we do now how we vote on that question in about 25 days will transform the world of our children for better or worse. Mr. Trump represents the new isolationism: Lets build walls physically and philosophically, keeping out the unwanted and unwashed. Lets tell the world we come first in the chow line. Well trade on our terms only, and we have the red button. Mrs. Clinton, conversely, represents an American status quo unaltered since 1941, an ideology neither Republican nor Democrat, per se, but participatory. Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama all have pointed Americans into the external and sometimes the internal affairs of other nations.Put simply, we aim to direct the way other nations treat us, and periodically the way they treat their own people. We act or fail to act based on sometimes difficult-to-measure portions of self-interest and altruism.When Robert Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations and a State Department official for both Bush presidents, presented similar ideas in a Wall Street Journal commentary in August, he also cautioned us not to give up. Turning away from global engagement would mean not just opportunities lost: in jobs reliant on exports, in opportunities to invest overseas, the ability to travel without fear. It would also bring conflict and nuclear proliferation. As the world unraveled, Americans would be more vulnerable to terrorism, illegal immigration, climate change and disease. Finally, he said, We do not have the option of becoming a giant gated community. We must lead with trade. To do that well, we must reform our unequal tax laws, require fair trading standards, and aggressively help citizens here who lose jobs as technologies and productions evolve and move. Mr. Trumps urge to break more than 70 years of such globalization and relative stability led by Americans who trade and who must reach out culturally to do so would prove catastrophic for our children. His strategy could do more harm than our bridge-too-far failures in three wars we hoped would reshape the character of nations: Korea (1950-1953), Vietnam (roughly 1960-1973), and Iraq (2003 to present). The writer Bill Kilpatrick, a combatwounded veteran of World War II, remembers much of this history personally. Ive heard this tune before, he told me in a note last week, describing Mr. Trumps urge to isolate the United States. Making noise beginning in 1940 was a group calling itself the America First Committee. Its membership, said at one time to number 800,000, included big-name politicians and heads of some of the nations leading industrial and commercial enterprises. The committee came into being to keep the United States out of the European war.The group was particularly strident in its opposition to this country aiding a beleaguered British Commonwealth, in the early days of World War II the only viable European entity opposing the seemingly invincible German onslaught. Popularly applied to the committee was the sobriquet America Firsters, and to its supporters classification as Isolationists. The AFCs most glamorous spokesman was aviator Charles A. Lindbergh. In the late 1930s he also won notoriety for having praised Germanys Luftwaffe.As noble a cause as these men and women were convinced was theirs, they were ostriches. They put their heads in the sand, apparently unmindful or heedless of the worlds ever-evolving dynamics. Their position was that America was sufficient and complete unto itself. But they were wrong. The world was shrinking and if the United States was to continue to grow and prosper it could not expect to do so feeding upon itself; it simply had to have overseas markets.Those markets would never have worked in Hitlers Europe or Japans Asia, Mr. Kilpatrick said. The fallacy of all isolationists was brought home tragically with the Dec. 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Suddenly and dramatically the United States was forced into action on a worldwide stage. Americans rallied to the cause and the AFC was disbanded. The truth many Americans and economists recognized in those days has changed little, he added.America needs markets, needs international commerce, and any isolationist nonsense expressed about making America great again is just that, nonsense. Exponents of protective walls, restrictive immigration laws, expulsion of illegal immigrants, restrictions on Muslims, tariff restrictions and similar draconian measures aimed at pacifying our nations right-wingers and wowsers have their heads in the sand. What they fail to realize, or refuse to accept, is that thanks to technologies, borders are becoming less relevant; Podunk in Iran yes, even Iran is not all that different than Podunk in Iowa, particularly in regard to young people.What this means is not complicated, in the view of one wise old man. The needs and wants of people everywhere are, basically, similar, and quasifascism as expounded by the likes of Donald Trump isnt going make a bit of difference. The genie of socialistic internationalism is out of the bottle, and, ultimately, we all are keepers of our brothers. We all are keepers of our brothers. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

No? Me neither. But apparently, members of the American Legislative Exchange Council, the nations largest association of state legislators, recently met in Williamsburg, Va., to host a dry-run simulation of a constitutional convention. Said ALEC, the dress rehearsal was to propose amendments to restore the appropriate balance of power between the federal government and the states. ALEC has pursued this agenda for years. It is optimistic success is in sight. ALECs strategy follows a tightly written script. It must round up 34 state legislatures (of which eight have already agreed) to collectively invoke Article V, the Constitutional convention clause of the U.S. Constitution. States have tried before, multiple times, but never successfully. This time, it could happen. Article V opens the door. Two ways exist to cross its threshold: by Congress initiating the process; or by two-thirds of the states legislatures acting in concert to compel Congress to convene a constitutional convention. Its not easy. Cynical attempts to tweak the Constitution face death by politics, and the orchestration associated with either strategy is purposefully daunting. For example, Congress can propose an amendment but for it to go forward, it has to muster a two-thirds vote of both the Senate and the House. Assuming success, the political theater moves to the states. Three-fourths of the states must bless the proposed amendment, either through affirmation by state conventions or by winning approval of a super majority of the required number of individual state legislatures whichever of the two methods Congress proscribes. If that seems troublesome, there is door No. 2: Start at the state level, corral enough states to meet the numerical bar. States can then force Congress to call a convention. Its purpose would be to consider amendments related to the 34 state applications. Article V provides for such a process. It takes two-thirds of all state legislatures to jointly invoke the convention clause. This is ALEC s strategy to get to yes to amend democracys Holy Grail. Working through state legislatures, it hopes to shift, through Constitutional fiat, the balance of power from the federal to the state level. If state efforts are successful in forcing Congress to act, any amendment the convention approves must be ratified by three-fourths of the states. ALEC hopes to catalyze the dawn of a new confederacy. So what is ALEC? It promotes itself as a benign, nonpartisan, association of state legislators. But its real purpose is to function as a bill mill promoting special interest legislation through the backdoors it has created in state governments. Unholy alliances are aided and abetted by ALEC through the vehicle of its membership structure, which includes state legislators, lobbyists, major corporations and various and sundry powerbrokers. The People for the American Way says ALEC is a one-stop shop for corporations looking to identify friendly state legislators and work with them to get specialinterest legislation introduced. Its a winwin for corporations, their lobbyists, and right-wing legislators. It notes abundant cash and generous goodie bags lubricate the conversation among its members. Ninety-eight percent of ALECs funding is from sources other than dues of its members, including major corporations, big dog donors and private and family foundations funding right-wing causes. This is why ordinary people wouldnt have the Williamsburg meeting on their calendar or hear about it on the nightly news. It is a private party and the conversations that occur there are just between friends. ALEC has been around since 1973. But with so many states governed at present by Republican majorities, it is enjoying a boom-let of influence in state capitals, including our own. A 2012 report issued by a coalition of progressive groups documents how incestuous the relationships have become between ALEC and Floridas conservative lawmakers. The cookie-cutter-type bills introduced in our legislature mirror bills ALEC peddles in multiple other states. ALECs distribution list of carbon copies bear few distinctions unique to Floridas circumstance; and commonly share ALECs DNA signature: a decided tilt toward corporate self-interests and private profits. In an analysis of legislation enacted by Florida lawmakers, ALEC left its footprint behind in most areas of state policy-making. Its model bills included legislation to undermine environmental protections, eviscerate health care reforms, privatize public education, erode workers rights, limit liability for corporate wrong-doing and disenfranchise voters. The report concluded ALECs legislative groupies amended Florida statutes for the worse, harming the rights and opportunities of everyday citizens in the process. So it does not bode well that ALEC is hard set on tinkering with the U.S. Constitution. What could possibly go wrong?As it turns out, quite a lot. ALECs agenda is to return control over matters that more appropriately and constitutionally rest with the states and municipalities back to them. In other words, trump the rights of federal citizenship, give states a jurisdictional override of federal policy and pre-empt local governments from managing local affairs whenever corporate plantations are threatened.

It is a subset of a larger liberal panic over Donald Trumps strength in the general election. The mood of the center-left is, America, how dare you? The outraged incomprehension is seeping into and, increasingly, driving the coverage of the race. The freak-out began a few weeks ago when Donald Trump started to close the polling gap with Hillary Clinton, and picked up intensity as the race essentially became a tie. The media is going to be in a perpetual state of high anxiety and dudgeon until Election Day. The press is playing catch-up. It didnt take much foresight to realize that giving Trump $2 billion worth of free publicity in his primary battle might help him win his partys nomination. Still, it was all fun and games as long as the ratings were good and Trump trailed Hillary. Not anymore. There have been two seminal events in the freak-out. The first was the absurdly over-the-top criticism of Matt Lauer for not being tough enough on Trump at an NBC national-security forum. Lauer couldnt have satisfied his critics short of slapping Trump in the face and demanding, Have you no sense of decency, sir? The second was a New York Times news analysis on Trumps disavowal of birtherism that was intended as an exemplary act of journalistic aggression a rhetorical assault worthy of the poison pen of Maureen Dowd that led the paper with the extremely hostile headline, Trump Gives Up a Lie, But Refuses to Repent. Some of the anti-Trumpism in the media has been expressed in pointless and annoying gestures, such as CNNs practice of fact-checking Trumps statements in snarky chyrons at the bottom of the screen. More significantly, Lester Holt tilted anti-Trump during the debate. Trump got tougher questions than Clinton, who was spared queries on matters such as the Clinton Foundation and Benghazi. And he fact-checked Trump in real time twice, arguably getting his correction of Trump about a complex stop-and-frisk case wrong. Notably, Holt got positive reviews. Trump is indeed a different kind of animal and has stressed every institution that has encountered him over the past year, from the Republican National Committee to rival campaigns to the media. But the current media freak-out is hard to take, and a mistake. One, it is galling, since the media is collectively deciding to give up on an objectivity that it never had. John McCain and Mitt Romney, upstanding, honorable men who werent allegedly threats to the republic, were on the receiving end of more negative coverage than Barack Obama. Two, it speaks to a certain contempt for the medias fellow citizens, who are presumed incapable of rationally evaluating the candidates without its thumb on the scale. Three, if Trump loses, the media will go right back to its pose of objectivity. Whereas the only good thing about the medias current jag is that it might represent movement toward a more British-style (and traditional American-style) journalism, with outlets forthrightly acknowledging their partisan allegiances. Nothing is going to dissuade the media from its current course, though. There is no reasoning with fear and loathing.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYsequel? Is Florida weather X-rated? Is hot air blowing in from the 2016 presidential campaigns? Probably all of the above. Experts, meanwhile, point to other reasons for the rain, hot days and unusually muggy summer nights (even for South Florida) that weve experienced. An unusually strong El Nio and a warming planet are two factors that may have contributed to the recordbreaking weather patterns over the last year, said Floridas official state climatologist, David Zierden at Florida State University. The warming of the air, land and water is expected to continue in the years to come to boost temperatures, create unexpected weather patterns, and fuel more weather extremes: wetter wet periods and dryer dry ones, as well as events like freezes. Scientists believe the warming planet may be partly to blame for individual local weather events such as the rains this winter, or the flooding that Charlotte Countys Deep Creek community experienced in early September. But its hard to know how much. The Earth as a whole continues to warm and thats undoubtedly due to an increase in greenhouse gases, Mr. Zierden said. But when you start talking about regional and local effects, thats when it gets a little murkier. A climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Jake Crouch, said scientists are starting to figure out how to make those determinations. Its kind of an emerging area of science to parse out the shorter and longer-term trends that cause local weather events, he said. While many variables including chance come into play, the underlying long-term trend influencing our climate is global warming, said Mr. Crouch. The year 2016 is set to be the record warmest year for Earth, in front of 2015 and 2014. Florida is warming too, he noted, since 1950 at a rate of about three degrees Fahrenheit per century. For the year ending in September, the states average temperature of 73.2 degrees set the record high. An unusually strong El Nio during the first half of the year was the major short-term factor that boosted temperatures and the rainfall that drenched South Florida during what is normally the winter dry season. In the coming winter, the opposite La Nia cycle, although it is expected to be a weak one, could mean dryer weather. Last winter we were in, by some measures, the strongest El Nio of the century and El Nio is really well known to bring much above normal rainfall to South Florida in the winter months, Mr. Zierden said. From December to February this year, 15.3 inches of precipitation soaked the Southwest Florida region and the Everglades, almost 10 inches above the 20th century average, NOAA data shows. A record. Even so, the overall amount of rain averaged over the year ending in September made it the 25th wettest year on record for the region. And over the summer the amount of rain we saw in South Florida was about normal, and slightly below normal on the southeast coast. What were seeing more of, is were getting more precipitation occurring in single events, said Mr. Crouch, instead of spread out throughout a year. Just how much recent heat and rain could be attributed to climate change at this point is undetermined, Mr. Zierden said. This year and this summer was certainly exceptional but its only one year and wed need to see a continuation in this kind of change in temperatures and humidity to really be able to attribute it to climate change, he said. But as climate change progresses, I think it would be safe to assume well see more summers like the one we just endured here in Florida. Flooding and drought combined with increasing temperatures in Florida could really have compounding effects on our hydrologic systems and our water resources, one of his primary concerns in Florida, Mr. Zierden said. The rains this winter had wide ranging implications from agriculture to businesses such as Lehigh Acres-based Larue Pest Management, for its lawn care and pest control services. I remember October, November, December it was just rain, rain, rain, said owner Keith Ruebeling, followed by an even wetter January. It just doesnt seem to have stopped. The saturated soil at times made it difficult or impossible to apply expensive products that control proliferating pests such as a chinch bug. Its affected our lawn business tremendously, he said. Hes hoping for a dryer season this year but is preparing for whatever happens. Weve had to staff up, keep more guys out there to get the work done and keep more management out there to follow up on these properties. You adapt as a business but its not always the move you want to make, you know? Even if climatologists are predicting more uncertainty and extreme weather, farmers are experienced at dealing with it already, said Gene McAvoy, who works closely with commercial producers as Hendry County extension director with the University of Florida. We had summer-like rains throughout our dry season and that greatly affected crops, he said. We lost quite a number of plantings on sweet corn and green beans, (and) it had impacts on a lot of other crops. Now in his 60s, Mr. McAvoy points out that unpredictable weather is not new, even if some say its bound to get worse. Ive seen a lot of weather over my life. Sometimes we forget what we saw before.Hot days, steamy nightsA steady heat persisted for weeks of 90-degree plus temperatures on Floridas southwest and southeast coasts during parts of the summer. As much as average temperatures were above normal this summer, it was the nighttime low temperatures where we saw the greatest increase in heat, Mr. Zierden said.

United States, overnight temperatures were worsened by urban heat islands in heavily populated coastal areas, and a cycle of increasing humidity warming an atmosphere that can in turn hold more moisture. So its kind of a feedback loop, Mr. Crouch said. The more moisture it holds the more it continues to warm. Minimum overnight temperatures along the heavily populated southeast coast of Florida tied with 2010 for the warmest on record during June, July and August at 76.8 degrees, 4 degrees above normal at a time of day when many people like to crank up the A/C to get a better nights sleep. The heat has lingered on through September and into October. It got hot like in February and it looks like its going to stay hot through Thanksgiving, said Louis Bruno, CEO of Naplesbased Bruno Air Conditioning. Among those with older and traditional units, his company saw a 15 percent increase in repairs over the last summer season, while customers energy consumption increased 40 percent, he said. A newer model designed to combat Floridas humid climate performed far better on both counts. Kenneth Robinson, owner of East Fort Myers-based Country Cooling & Heating Incorporated, said that the lightning accompanying storms this year caused flurries of evening and afternoon calls due to units tripping breakers and other problems. And the heat and humidity that can be rough on A/C units was made worse by the winter rains that kept the soil saturated. Moisture is a big, big concern, he said. Too much moisture, too much humidity and youve got mold growth starting. While it might be human nature to see the climate through the lens of the latest storm, Janice Stillman takes a longer view. We live in most cases less than 100 years and we maybe only think about the weather only several decades of that time, said Ms. Stillman, an editor of The Old Farmers Almanac with its famous weather forecasts that take into account solar cycles, climatology and meteorology. Our experience of the change in the Earth over longer periods is really relatively brief and we have to recognize that its just always changing. All the record-breaking events mentioned in this article, for instance, are based on modern records that only go back to the late 1800s, while the Almanac was founded in 1792. The 2017 edition describes this Solar Cycle 24 as the smallest in more than a century, which could cool off the atmosphere. If greenhouse gasses werent there we might be able to say wed be going into a colder than normal period, Ms. Stillman said. But greenhouse gasses could mitigate or offset the effects of low solar activity. Its really a bit of an unknown. The Almanacs forecast for Florida this winter includes above normal rainfall in the north, and near normal in the south; a cooler and rainier than normal summer; and a warmer and drier than normal September and October 2017. NASA PHOTOEach of the first six months of 2016 set a record as the warmest respective month globally in the modern temperature record, which dates to 1880. Meanwhile, five of the first six months set records for the smallest monthly Arctic sea ice extent since consistent satellite records began in 1979. This year and this summer was certainly exceptional but its only one year and wed need to see a continuation in this kind of change in temperatures and humidity to really be able to attribute it to climate change.

BEHIND THE WHEELHow to take advantage of the Mazda LoopholeFor those hoping that this column would be about tire-screeching hot laps, we have that coming next week. Instead, as model-year closeout sales begin, were going to take a look at an interesting situation that will help you put an upgraded machine in your everyday garage. Its all about Mazda. Theres a quiet transition thats going on with all the cars. In the last decade Mazda struck out on its own after breaking most ties with the Ford Motor Company. This has allowed the company to further its efforts into providing sporty cars for the sensible shoes crowd. Today, the brand is squarely in the mainstream, with pricing that starts at $18,680 for a base Mazda3 sedan and topping out around $47K for a flagship CX-9 crossover with every option box checked. Mazda draws one of the most diverse buyer groups around despite being outside of the top 10 auto companies in the world. Its cars are often seen as outlier on shopping lists for those who stay with Japanese quality-driven brands like Nissan or Toyota. But Mazdas driveroriented products also sometimes steal European brand customers who are willing to give up some prestige for lower maintenance costs. So why is this important to the average consumer? Mazda is looking to capitalize on both of these strengths moving forward. Every year there is a group of consumers whose budgets grow enough to begin shopping in the premium vehicle segment. Not everyone who seeks entry-level luxury is thrilled with the expensive service requirements and maintenance costs that often accompany a premium brand. Mazda has found a good home for those refugees from invoice shock. Everything from the Miata roadster to the CX-3 crossover offers some of the European performance feeling on the road with Jiffy Lube sensibilities. But now, rather than trying to catch these premium buyers as they fall down, Mazda wants to give them a reason to stay with the brand as they move upward. The company admits the new focus is to fit between Honda and Acura in the automotive world. Mazda wont be abandoning its strategy of providing mainstream vehicles, but it will focus on amplifying the premium feeling on new higher-level trim options. A byproduct of this has been an increase in materials quality thats trickling down to very basic (i.e. affordable) vehicles. For example, the new Mazda CX-9 is the latest vehicle built in this image. The seven-passenger crossover is more attractive than its predecessor, and it takes more than a thoughtful design to accomplish this upgrade. The new CX-9 uses better materials on the exterior, which makes it more expensive to build. Inside, the top tier Signature trim level is downright luxurious, with nappa leather seats, open grain rosewood trim and power accessories galore. This topof-the-line $45,000 Mazda feels like sitting in a $55,000 BMW X5, and thats not a coincidence. The German car is more powerful, has even more available features and has an undeniable prestige that the CX-9 cannot match. But Mazda isnt going toe-to-toe for every BMW customer. The premium trim CX-9 is just a well-placed alternative to stepping up to an X5. But the real value is at the other end of the spectrum the base CX-9 can be taken home for $32,420. The exterior is missing some trim elements of the premium versions, but all those expensive investments in making a comprehensively appealing design are still present on the lowest rung of the ladder. Inside is a similar story. Some of the leather and wood is replaced by cloth and plastic, but the stamped metal, dashboard layout and overall build quality dont change much between the base model and the highest echelon. Thus, as the company aims for a more affluent piece of the market, this allows more mainstream buyers to take advantage of a fortuitous upgrade in the bargain basement. We can affectionately refer to the situation as the Mazda Loophole. After all, the goal might be to sell as many upper trim (i.e., more profitable) vehicles as possible, but at the end of the day, the company is just happy you went home in a Mazda. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Frontiers of scienceLarge kidney stones typically mean eye-watering pain and sudden urinary blockage until the stone passes (often requiring expensive sound-wave treatment to break up a large stone). Michigan State University urologist David Wartinger told The Atlantic in September that he had recently happened upon a pain-free way to pass stones before they become problems: the centripetal force from a roller coaster ride. In a 200-trip experiment preparing for a validating human trial, he successfully passed stones in his hand-held, silicone model kidney (using his own urine) about two-thirds of the time when sitting in a rear seat at Disney Worlds Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.PerspectiveWith about 30 states having adopted some form of stand your ground defense to assault (or murder) charges, five membership organizations, charging up to $40 a month, have signed up a half-million gun owners concerned that law enforcement treat them fairly should they someday be forced to shoot providing instructions and a hot line to coach members on what to tell police, plus liability insurance and help getting a lawyer. Critics say such organizations are also useful to thoswho might be prone to shooting people and want advice on how best to get away with it. The U.S. Concealed Carry organizations wallet-sized card, to give to police, asks that the shooter under suspicion be given the same consideration as the officers might give to their own colleagues under suspicion.AwesomeDiego the giant tortoise, believed to be more than 100 years old, now lives in semi-retirement on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, but from 1976 to 2010, Diego brought an almost-extinct species back to life by fathering about 800 babies in the captive breeding program on Espanola, another of the Galapagos Islands. Biologists did not realize Diegos prowess until 2010 when DNA tests identified him as the father of 40 percent of all tortoises on the island. Even on Santa Cruz Island, Diego keeps busy, with a harem of six females. (Another Galapagos tortoise species did die out in 2012 when the last male, the centenarian Lonesome George, maintained his celibacy until death.)Compelling explanations The New York City Council, grilling police officials in September about their practice of freely seizing money from detainees under suspicion, asked for a thorough accounting of that money (suspecting that innocent victims rarely get it back unless aided by high-powered lawyers). Though (in crime-fighting hyperbole) NYPD routinely boasts of its half-million annual seizures, an NYPD official told the council it would be impossible to account for everything that keeping track of it all would cause its computers to crash. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is bureaucratically at the epicenter of the states drought crisis, but in September KCBS-TV aired video of the department actually using sprinklers to water the artificial lawn at a substation in South Los Angeles. A DWP spokesperson said such watering is routine at substations to clean the plastic (and wash off any dog urine, for example).Things you thought didnt happenWanda Witter, 80, had been living on Washington, D.C., streets for 10 years, but insisting to anyone who would listen that the Social Security Administration owed her sums that recently reached $100,000, and that she had documents to prove it. However, given her circumstances, most regarded her as just another luckless person confused by homeless life. In June, though, after social worker Julie Turner took a closer look and found, improbably, that Witter was indeed owed $100,000 and even more improbably, that all of her paperwork was carefully organized among the unimpressive possessions she hauled around daily, SSA paid her $999 on the spot, and the remaining $99,999 arrived in August.Feel-good marketing One branch of the James Harper funeral homes, in Bromley, England, announced its latest promotion via a sign in a front window (reported by the Bromley News Shopper in September): Wow! Free Childs Battery Powered Vehicle With Every Pre-Paid Funeral Arranged This Month. A Harper spokesperson said the purpose was to encourage residents to think ahead about funerals. Considering Cremation? was the headline of the Aug. 7 advertising supplement to the Tampa Bay Times (and other Florida newspapers), appearing just below a snapshot of a mom, dad and three youngsters frolicking in the grass, seemingly overjoyed. Nothing about cremation appeared except dates and sites of free cremation seminars, sponsored by the National Cremation Society (whose website is thankfully more somber).Recurring themesThe most recent immigrant family living high on the hog in the United Kingdom is Arnold Mballe Sube and his wife, Jeanne, both 33, who drew the equivalent of about $130,000 in government benefits last year, but are still feuding with the Luton Bor ough Council near London over its inability to find (free) housing adequate for them and their eight children. They turned down fourand five-bedroom homes, were housed temporarily in a Hilton hotel, and said they would be satisfied only with a six-bedroom residence. Mr. Sube, from Cameroon, emigrated to France at age 18, then came to England in 2012 to study nursing at the University of Bedfordshire.

All are welcome. An emeritus professor of sociology at Idaho State University, Mr. Aho will discuss his year-long research that culminated in Far-Right Fantasy: A Sociology of American Religion and Politics, his 10th book, which was published earlier this year. In it, he explores movements many fueled by religious beliefs that call for rebellion against the U.S. government. He writes that ultra-rightists are almost exclusively white, middle-aged Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians and Mormons, animated by a doctrine known as Dominionism, a belief based on scripture that God has commanded mankind to reconstruct America based on biblical and constitutional teachings. Some examples of actions triggered by such ideology include the antiMasonic movement in the 1830s, the Civil War, McCarthyism in the 1950s and the religious-right revolution of the 1980s led by influential Christians such as the Rev. Pat Robertson. The most recent example is the tea party movement that arose after the election of President Barack Obama. Mr. Aho theorizes such movements to return to what believers feel were better times in America happen in 30-year cycles, or roughly once each generation. What can fuel such revolutionary fires even more these days, however, is access to social media and the internet in general, places where people with like ideas can more easily connect with one another. Mr. Aho writes that the danger of echo-chamber communications systems emblematic of the far right is that they nurture prejudice and prepare audiences psychologically to commit detestable deeds in good conscience. Mr. Aho taught at ISU for more than 40 years. He won the Gustavus Myers Award in 1994 for the best study of human rights in North America. His appearance at FGCU is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and supported by a donation from the Seidler family.The free lecture is open to the public.

Mr. Yellin served in WWII from 194145, having enlisted two months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor on his 18th birthday. After graduating from Luke Air Field as a fighter pilot in August of 1943, he spent the remainder of the war flying P-40, P-47 and P-51 combat missions in the Pacific with the 78th Fighter Squadron. On the final mission of the war, Mr. Yellins wingman, Phillip Schlamberg, became the last man killed in a combat mission in WWII. Riddled with guilt over why he survived, Mr. Yellin struggled with severe undiagnosed PTSD for years after the war. He credits Transcendental Meditation with ultimately bringing him peace and contentment. Mr. Yellin was inducted into the U.S. Air Force Hall of Fame with the late Louie Zamperini in August 2014. He is the national honorary chaair for Keep the Spirit of 5 Alive. The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however. RSVP by calling 594-2978 or sending a text to Lois Bolin at 777-2281. Veterans are encouraged to come without a reservation.

Over the years, they have served in several European countries and also in the Dominican Republic. Every year, a few students go out of the country for an internship, says Noemi Perez, TIF program services director. And every year the number grows. Many more students are becoming interested in studying abroad. But none have gone as far as Regine Francois. From mid-May to late July of this year, Ms. Francois worked more than 7,000 miles from Immokalee, serving with Nourish International and Community Concerns Uganda. A freshman at Columbia University in New York City, she was one of four interns, ages 19-25, sent to a rural area of the east African country to continue projects Community Concerns Uganda had begun and to start some new ones. At 19, she was the youngest among the interns but was chosen as their leader. That didnt surprise Ms. Perez. Regine is unique one of those students who can land in a leadership role and run with it, she says. This trait was obvious in high school, when Ms. Francois was a Take Stock in Children student; it was then that her interest in international aid took root. She was passionate about collecting hygiene items and sending them to Haiti, Ms. Perez says. This summer, Ms. Francois spent her first week in Uganda training and then began talking with the local people to learn about their needs. Although most spoke English, she tried and succeeded to learn some of the native language, Lusoga, which is one of about 40 languages or dialects spoken in the country. I would talk to the strangers next to me when riding public transportation, she says. They really appreciated our interest in their culture. Ms. Francois helped to create a health education curriculum for students ages 10-16. She taught HIV prevention, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, what to expect during puberty and how to maintain healthy self-esteem. She also helped design a financial literacy program for local women. Although many women in Uganda are entrepreneurs who sell basic items such as soap and produce they grow in their gardens, few of them could count, Ms. Francois said, putting them at risk when they face tasks such as making change for customers. A group savings program had been set up, but without financial literacy instruction, the women had difficulty using the program or recognizing its benefits. The interns worked on other projects for Community Concerns Uganda and Nourish International, including teaching nutrition, organizing a youth group and creating a seed bank for this mainly agricultural area. Through the experience, Ms. Francois says, she learned valuable lessons about other people and cultures and also about herself. And some of those lessons were intense. For example, an early project involved distributing malaria nets to protect Ugandans from the mosquito-borne illness; 100 households received a net. The nets were not big enough to cover the multiple residents of most houses while they slept, however. That showed me just because your intention is pure doesnt mean the results are good or sustainable, Ms. Francois says. Leading the group of interns also taught the young intern lessons in humility and self-confidence. She wrote curriculum and other course plans, as well as frequent reports to her instructors. Back at Columbia University in New York City, she is studying sustainable development with a concentration in business management. Her experiences with another culture over the summer are prompting her to consider adding sociology to her educational mix. Most TIF students go on internships between their sophomore and junior years of high school, Ms. Perez says, adding that for most, the internship is their first immersion into the world outside of Immokalee. No matter where they go, they have an enriching cultural experience that also fosters independence. You only need to hear Ms. Francois talk about her work in Africa to realize it is often life-changing: It was heartbreaking seeing so many people in such poverty-stricken conditions, but also inspiring to see how their faith gave them hope. I just hope I had a small bit of impact in the lives of those I interacted with. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence. To learn about volunteering as a career panel speaker or host, becoming a mentor or making a donation, call 430-9122 or visit www.immokaleefoundation.org.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThough urban development has largely curtailed the blooms tendency to overrun our plains and swamps, nature lovers can still find glorious displays and hidden buds once the summer rains dry up and give way to the milder, drier air of fall. Some flowers are highly seasonal while others can vary wildly depending on the weather, according to naturalist and wildflower expert Roger Hammer. Orchids are particularly rigid about their blooming period and right now, he says, adding one ground orchid called a Summer Farewell is waiting for someone to find it. Its kind of a harbinger of fall, Mr. Hammer says about the Summer Farewell. When you see it flowering, its kind of like migratory birds showing up. Its an indicator that things are changing. A couple of different varieties of the orchid range into Southwest Florida. Another showstopper that can be sighted in local pine or coastal prairies is the Catesbys lily, which requires habitats that become wet or saturated with summer rains. Southwest Florida certainly had a wet summer, and both Pepper Ranch Preserve and CREW Land & Water Trust report easily visible blooms. As you travel around Southwest Florida in these early days of fall, keep an eye out for unmowed ditches and rural roadsides for the easiest viewing. Undeveloped patches of land that have seen a wildfire or prescribed burn in the last few years usually undergo a few years of vibrant wildflower blooms, thanks to the top layer of vegetation being burned away to make room for plants that might not otherwise break through it. Below, we have partial lists of the most interesting wildflowers in public spaces. Many more varieties are easily found with the help of a guidebook and some persistence. PEPPER RANCH PRESERVE6315 Pepper Road, Immokalee www.colliergov.netWhile Pepper Ranch Preserve is best known for its Sunflower Festival, which it celebrated earlier this month, the wet weather delayed the sunny blooms so they will be viewable later in the fall. At least 10 types of native plant communities are documented on the preserve including woodland pasture, hardwood forests, freshwater marsh and wet prairie that allow a wide variety of blooms to flourish. Take a walk, grab a bike or saddle up a horse and see if you can identify 30-plus native varieties that include the downy, lilac blooms of the blue mistflower (Conoclinium coelestinum) or the vibrant red, leathery petals of a Catsbys lily (Lillium catesbaei). Other possible sightings: Savannah milkweed (Asclepias Pedicellata), American bluehearts (Buchnera Americana), Florida bellflower (Capanula floridana), Leavenworths tickseed (Coreopsis leavenworthii), pineland twinflower (Dyschoriste angusta), Elliotts milkpea (Galactia elliottii), eastern milkpea (Galactia regularis), downy milkpea (Galactia volubilis), southern sunflower (Helianthus agrestis), swamp rosemallow (Hibiscus grandiflorus), wild pennyroyal (Piloblephis rigida), southern dewberry (Rubus trivialis), black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), whitetop aster (Seriocarpus tortifolius) and climbing aster (Symphyotrichum eliottii). CREW LAND & WATER TRUST23998 Corkscrew Road, Esterowww.crewtrust.orgManaged by the South Florida Water Management District, CREW has about five miles of hikeable trails through several ecosystems that boast a wide variety of fall wildflowers. Mr. Hammer will lead a guided walk along the trails on Saturday, Oct. 29 (see box), promising adventurers a good chance of spying an array of milkweeds, ground orchids and pine lilies. Theyre just gorgeous, Jessie Drummond, CREW environmental education specialist, says. The pine lily is the big one we have right now. The preserve is the local must-see for wildflower enthusiasts because of its variety of habitats, Mr. Drummond adds. There are sandy uplands, pine flatwoods, hammock and a marsh. Youve got a whole bunch of habitats, and there are a whole lot more northern plants at the tail end of their range at CREW. As an example, Southwest Floridians will not find a honeycomb head anywhere else because, It stops right there, Mr. Hammer says. Possible sightings: Pineland purple (Carphaphorus odoratissimus), blackeyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), false dragonhead (Phystostegia purpurea), whitelipped dayflower (Commelina erecta), glades morning glory (Ipomoea sagittata), pale meadow beauty (Rhexia mariana), lanceleaf arrowhead (Sagitarria lancifolia), fragrant water lily (Nymphaea odorata), pine lily (Lillium catesbaei), butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa), wedelia (Sphagneticola trilobata), balsam pear (Mormordia balsamina), St. Johns wort (Hypericum tenifolium,) piriqueta (Piriqueta carolinium), golden aster (Pityiopsis graminifolia), pickerelweed (Pondeteria cordata), butterfly pea (Cephalanthus occidentalis).FLOWERFrom page 1 CREW guided wild ower hike>> When: 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 29 >> Who: Florida naturalist and wild ower expert Roger Hammer >> Where: Through the watershed at the CREW Land & Water Trust, 23998 Corkscrew Road, Estero >> Cost: $20 for CREW members, $30 for others >> Info: 653-2253 or www.crewtrust.org NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN / COURTESY PHOTOLeavenworths tickseedROGER HAMMER / COURTESY PHOTOPine lily at CREW Land & Water TrustROGER HAMMER / COURTESY PHOTOSummer farewell at Big Cypress National Preserve
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 NEWS A19NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN4820 Bayshore Drivewww.naplesgarden.orgIf paved walkways and easy access to refreshment are more your style than traipsing through the woods, head to Naples Botanical Garden to see samples of common Florida wildflowers. Sprinkled throughout the property, they are the perfect complement to the newly redesigned Scott Florida garden, which will reopen gradually throughout the fall with rescued native trees and palms, chickee huts, a cascade and stream and a new view of Lake Tupke and Deep Lake. Of particular interest might be the bladderwort, an aquatic flower that blooms in pink and yellow in the gardens lakes. This is one charismatic native flower that is easily missed, Chad Washburn, deputy director at the Garden, says about the carnivorous plant that uses bladderlike traps to catch tiny organisms. Pink muhly grass, voted the 2012 Plant of the Year by Garden Club of America, puts on a nice show as well at the Garden, with its wispy pink flowers that are also easily found on the Tamiami Trail roadside as it cuts through the Everglades. Possible sightings: Bladderwort (Utricularia sp.), bulltongue arrowhead (Sagitarria lancifolia), dune sunflower (Helianthus debilis), pink muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris), pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata), Leavenworths tickseed (Coreopsis leavenworthii), tropical sage (Salvia occinea), swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius). CORKSCREW SWAMP SANCTUARY375 Corkscrew Road, Napleswww.corkscrew.audubon.orgCorkscrews staff is anticipating that the presence of bladderwort, pickerelweed and sky flower blooming indicates much more is on its way. The swamp occupies about 13,000 acres of wetlands in northern Collier County and is best known for its 2.25-mile boardwalk that allows visitors to traverse through watery swamps, plains and the largest remaining bald cypress forest in the world. Its most famous flower is the ghost orchid, a rare species that flowers with some regularity and might even be viewable now, but it also boasts a fair amount of other orchids as well. Right now, theres quite a bit blooming and well probably have a lot more as we get into fall, says Sally Stein, the sanctuarys director of public programs. The new orchid thats really hard to find is the jingle bell orchid. Its a teeny tiny little orchid related to the ghost orchid and has a cute little jingle bell shape. Possible sightings: Jinglebell orchid (Dendrophylax porecta), clamshell orchid (Encyclia cochleata), wild coco orchid (Eulophia alta), yellow helmet orchid (Polystachia concreta), swamp lily (Crinum americanum), white water lily (Nymphaea odorata), butterfly pea (Centrosema virginianum), partridge pea (Chamaecrista sp.) tasselflower (Emilia foshergii), Southeastern sunflower Helianthus agrestis), sky flower (Hydrolea corymbosa), morning glory (Ipomoea sp.), primrose willow (Ludwigia octovalvus), snowy squarestem (Melanthera nivea), Elliots aster (Symphyotrichum elliottii), purple bladderwort (Utricularia purpurea). KORESHAN STATE HISTORIC SITE3800 Corkscrew Road, Esterowww.floridastateparks.orgAlong the Estero River off U.S. 41, the former home of Dr. Cyrus Teed and his many followers now allows visitors to explore its grounds by foot or water. Considering that park managers have undertaken a few prescribed burns in the last few years and a partnership with the Coccoloba chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, visitors have plenty to see. Weve been planting the butterfly garden, the rock village and the volunteer village, says chapter treasurer Marlene Rodack. We were out last week and there were some beautiful liatrus blooming. The freshly burned areas are just loaded with wildflowers. Possible sightings: Tropical sage (Salvia coccinea), blue porterweed (Stachytartheta jamaicensis), dune sunflower (Helianthus debilis), blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella), railroad vine (Ipomoea pes-caprae), Curtiss milkweed (Ascelpias curtisfii).

Exercise releases hormone that helps shed, prevent fat UF HEALTHIf a workout feels like more pain than gain, heres some motivation: Exercise releases a hormone that helps the body shed fat and keeps it from forming. A group led by a University of Florida Health researcher has learned more about how the hormone irisin helps convert calorie-storing white fat cells into brown fat cells that burn energy. Irisin, which surges when the heart and other muscles are exerted, also inhibits the formation of fatty tissue, according to the researchers. The findings show that irisin may be an attractive target for fighting obesity and diabetes, said Li-Jun Yang, M.D., a professor of hematopathology in the UF College of Medicines department of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine. The study is believed to be the first of its kind to examine the mechanisms of irisins effect on human fat tissue and fat cells, researchers said. Irisin appears to work by boosting the activity of genes and a protein that are crucial to turning white fat cells into brown cells, the researchers found. It also significantly increases the amount of energy used by those cells, indicating it has a role in burning fat. Researchers collected fat cells donated by 28 patients who had breast reduction surgery. After exposing the samples to irisin, they found a nearly fivefold increase in cells that contain a protein known as UCP1 that is crucial to fat burning. We used human fat tissue cultures to prove that irisin has a positive effect by turning white fat into brown fat and that it increases the bodys fat-burning ability, Dr. Yang said. Likewise, Dr. Yang and her collaborators found that irisin suppresses fat-cell formation. Among the tested fat-tissue samples, irisin reduced the number of mature fat cells by 20 to 60 percent compared with those of a control group. That suggests irisin reduces fat storage in the body by hindering the process that turns undifferentiated stem cells into fat cells while also promoting the stem cells differentiation into bone-forming cells, the researchers said. Knowing that the body produces small quantities of fat-fighting irisin underscores the importance of regular exercise, Dr. Yang said. More than two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese, according to the National Institutes of Health. While its possible that the beneficial effects of irisin could be developed into a prescription medication, Dr. Yang said that is uncertain and remains a long time away. Instead of waiting for a miracle drug, you can help yourself by changing your lifestyle. Exercise produces more irisin, which has many beneficial effects including fat reduction, stronger bones and better cardiovascular health, Dr. Yang said. The present study builds on other findings about irisins beneficial effects. In 2015, Dr. Yangs group found that the hormone helps improve heart function in several ways, including boosting calcium levels that are critical for heart contractions. In June, Dr. Yang and a group of scientists in China showed that irisin reduced arterial plaque buildup in mouse models by preventing inflammatory cells from accumulating, resulting in reducing reduction of atherosclerosis. The findings about irisins role in regulating fat cells sheds more light on how working out helps people stay slender, Dr. Yang said. Irisin can do a lot of things. This is another piece of evidence about the mechanisms that prevent fat buildup and promote the development of strong bones when you exercise, she said.

PET TALES Dog-proof living BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickEvery few years, when we get a new puppy or adopt an adult dog or have a foster dog spend some time with us, I have to dog-proof our home and learn some new tricks about interacting with particular dogs. You might think that I would have dog-proofing down by now, but each dog has been attracted to different items or has done things it didnt occur to the other dogs to try. Our current new dog is Kibo, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel were fostering until he is adopted. One of the first things Kibo taught me was to put away my shoes and to close doors. None of our other dogs have been chewers, but Kibo likes to examine things with his mouth in the fervent hope that they will be edible. He has gone into the closet to chew on my leather sandals (caught before he did any damage) and explored the walk-in shower. There he found and carried away a plastic razor, which, fortunately, he abandoned in the hallway instead of swallowing. He is also fond of a tiny, gold papier-mache box. He hasnt chewed it up or swallowed it, which he could easily do, but he likes to take it off the side table and lie with it. Its now out of reach, too. Despite his short stature, Kibo tries hard to be a countertop surfer. Weve learned not to hold or place food at any height where he could jump up and reach it. Our other dogs are also highly food-oriented, but they wouldnt dream of snatching food out of our hands. Kibo does more than dream it he tries it. I always push the chair in if I get up from the table because I can tell that the idea of jumping onto it to get at the food is running through his mind. If you are living with a Kibo of your own, here are some tips to keep your belongings safe, your house in one piece and your dog out of trouble. Use a crate. When you cannot supervise your dog, even if its just for a few minutes, put him in the crate to prevent any misbehavior. Kibo hangs out in his crate on his own and hes happy to go into it when asked because he knows he will get a treat. Tether your dog. That means he is leashed at your side at all times. This is a great way to learn the signals a new dog or puppy gives when he needs to go potty. It keeps him under your watchful eye so he cant get into mischief and helps build a bond between you. Get down at dogs-eye level to see what might attract the dogs attention. Electrical cords, small trash containers and dangling dish towels all can pose threats. Bundle cords and encase them in tough plastic covers, put trash containers out of reach, and keep dish towels in drawers if your dog is attracted to them. Chair and table legs often look good to chew. Coat them with Bitter Apple spray to deter taste-testing (try it first in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesnt damage the finish). Make sure no sharp edges or choking hazards are within a dogs reach. Most important, never underestimate the intelligence and inventiveness of dogs. They can learn to open doors, climb up on counters and desks using other pieces of furniture as launch pads, and crawl under or wiggle into places youve never imagined they would go. Be smart and put away or block access to valuable, fragile or dangerous items, and secure cabinets with childproof locks. Pets of the Week>> Barbie is a striking 2-year-old tabby whos super friendly.

THE DIVA DIARIESAh, the days of celebrity crushes anyone have a poster of Denzel?So, Im wondering if any of my lady readers have heard of Cody Simpson? Yeah, no. Me either. I couldnt help but be curious though, because recently there was a mom and her tween-age daughter in front of me in line at Publix and the girl was begging her mother to buy a magazine for her, Puh-leeeez, mom! I NEED this it has an article about CODY SIMPSON in it. So, right there in line, I googled Cody and learned that hes a popular tween heartthrob from Australia who was discovered by singing in YouTube videos. He is known as the Aussie hottie. Also, he was born in 1997. Yep, 1997. My email address is older than Cody Simpson. Im not 500 years old or anything. I mean, I use the internet I even SnapChat and I see these names peppered on gossip blogs and such. Cody and his fellow heartthrobs like Austin Mahone, Hayes Grier and Josh Hutcherson, and a bunch of others that Ive never heard of. The only reason I know who Brooklyn Beckham and Jaden Smith are is because one is the son of David Beckham and Posh Spice and the other is Will and Jada Smiths son. I actually remember when Jada was pregnant with that kid that was in 1998. I still have my favorite khaki pants hanging in my closet that I bought from Banana Republic in 1998. But thats the best thing about your first celebrity crush your mom has no idea who he is and when she sees posters of him taped all over your bedroom walls, she says stuff like, Who is David Cassidy anyway? His hair is so shaggy and dirty. And Donny Osmonds teeth are blindingly white; no one has teeth that white. Theyre probably fake. Thats when you whine loudly and say, Mom! Donny does NOT have fake teeeeeeth. And your mother walks away giggling. When I was 11, my Cody Simpson was David Cassidy, coming in a close second was Donny, third was Michael Jackson. But there was also Freddie Prinze, Andy Gibb and Leif Garrett. For me, it was all about lots of hair and cute smiles. Sadly, very few of my crushes fared well later in life. Half of them have gone to Cute Boy Heav en and others have battled addiction. If you ever had a thing for David Cassidy, I warn you, dont Google his mug shot its terribly depressing. The only one who stayed out of trouble and actually still looks much the same is Donny. His teeth remain incredibly white (maybe they ARE fake). Its funny how a girls taste in boys changes over the years. I looked at some photos of Cody Simpson on his Instagram and he has the silliest hairdo Ive ever seen it stands straight up and it must take gallons of hair gel to achieve that, plus his lips look like he gets fillers injected into him. Hes super skinny, impossibly blonde, and even though hes 19, he looks like a little boy to me and theres just nothing sexy about that. These days, if I still taped posters to my bedroom wall, they would be images of George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. All are dudes over 50 and all are totally hot. In the end, the mom behind me didnt buy the magazine for her desperate tween. Instead she told her, Im not going to spend $5 on a magazine when you can just look up the article and pictures online. And while I silently agreed that she had a point, I also realized that you cant tape a computer screen to your bedroom wall and kiss it goodnight every evening and Im just not so sure that puppy love can survive without posters. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com ALLAN WARREN, HELGA ESTEB & EVERETT COLLECTIONDavid Cassidy, Denzel Washinton and Cody Simpson are all poster-worthy.

The usual ways of measuring success such as how many leads or sales were generated dont really apply and that leaves them puzzled. Even people who are enthusiastic about social media arent always clear on what to expect, says Jay York, senior social media strategist for EMSI Public Relations based in Wesley Chapel. One problem is that people mistakenly focus too much on likes, figuring the more the better, he adds. So just what are the best ways to calculate whether youre setting and achieving realistic marketing goals on social media? Here are a few things Mr. York says you should expect from your efforts: Growth of followers You definitely should see growth in your number of followers. This is a long-term game, however, so dont get discouraged if it doesnt happen as quickly as you had imagined. Quality and quantity of reach Think of a billboard, Mr. York says: You can pay to put your message on a billboard alongside a highway, but are the passing motorists in your target audience? Some are, no doubt, but many are not. With social media, you can find the people interested in what youre offering. You can also use social medias analytic tools to gauge how far and wide your message is reaching. Engagement The level of engagement on social media varies greatly. Some people just read or look at what everyone else is posting, but dont post themselves. Others regularly post their own content, and they like and share what others post. Often theyve attracted an enormous following. Those are the people you want to go after, Mr. York says. Follow them and they might follow you in return. If they share one of your posts, then youre reaching their large audience. Traffic to your website Google analytics can tell you not only whether your website traffic has increased, but where that traffic came from. The immeasurable Sometimes the impact of social media efforts cant be measured. For example, if one person sees something a business posted on Twitter and mentions it to a friend, that friend might check out the companys website. If asked how they heard about the business, that person will say it was through a friend even though it was social media that got the connection started.Theres a science to managing a social media campaign, Mr. York says. If you want the best results, you cant take a willy-nilly, anything-goes approach. Youve got to carefully determine the most effective ways of reaching your target audience, choose content thats most likely to engage them, and monitor whats working.
B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY economy. This year, 171 million Americans are likely to spend $8.4 billion on Halloween, according to survey numbers from the National Retail Federation the most in the history of the holiday and up from $6.9 billion last year. Its worth noting, perhaps, that the second-highest spending year for Halloween occurred during the last presidential election in 2012, when Americans spent almost $8 billion suggesting that presidential election years are spookier than other years, and this one is the spookiest of all. Two of our most popular masks this year are the Donald Trump face and the Hillary Clinton face, were selling them like crazy, says Crissy Barchers, owner of the Red-Headed Witches, a bustling costume and special effects shop that operates year-around in Cape Coral. Put one of those on and you could probably scare anybody, but the options are many. With politics it sparks an interest, so we have past presidents and candidates, too we have Obama and Michelle Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Nixon Tricky Dick is always a popular character and we even have Kennedy. But the big money at Halloween isnt ultimately a politician or, say, a Super Pac, its a hot trend, says Olivia Abazzia, a marketing agency spokeswoman for Party City, a chain headquartered in Rockaway, New Jersey, with stores in Naples, Estero, Fort Myers and Charlotte County. Each Halloween, Party City analyzes pop culture, the latest fashion crazes and Hollywood blockbusters to determine the years biggest costume trends, she explains. From buzzworthy trends such as the 2016 presidential candidates, Pokemon Go and Snapchat filters, to new movie releases like Avengers, Age of Ultron, Star Wars and Suicide Squad, to hit television shows, we carry an assortment of costumes. At Red-Headed Witches, two of the top sellers are the Joker and Harley Quinn, due to the movie Suicide Squad, she reports. So, for example, we have everything from just parts and pieces to a build-your-own full outfit. So you could accessorize. And if you need just a wig, we have that too. People arent just spending on appearances. Theyll buy costumes, candy, food, drink, event tickets to support charities, home and lawn decorations including fancy inflatable displays, animatronics and probably anything else retailers can pitch them. The breakdown in spending is a story in itself, the NRF numbers show: Almost 95 percent of Halloween celebrants will buy into the candy craze, to the tune of $2.5 billion. Seven out of 10 will buy decorations, pumping about $2.4 billion into the effort, and more than 35 percent will pick up greeting cards, together spending about $390 million. But the largest portion of the dollars anted up by 67 percent of Halloween celebrants will go to costumes: a $3.1 billion stake in the green. Major retailers such as Walmart and Target are capturing significant portions of the market, but specialty costume and events stores thrive during the Halloween season, and even grocery stores and department stores will grab some of the business. The NRF survey estimates that 36 percent will visit a specialty Halloween or costume store. Along the southwest coast and among the specialty store chains, competition is apparently so fierce store managers wont talk about their businesses. We are not permitted to give out any information about our stores, said a manager at Party City, a chain headquartered in Rockaway, New Jersey, with stores in Naples, Estero, Fort Myers and Charlotte County. A call and email to the companys advertising agency was not returned. And at Spirit Halloween another New Jersey-based chain with stores in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers and Naples, and a motto that claims its so much fun its scary while promising to meet family budgets a manager was too buy to talk to media not once but twice, which suggests that business is hopping. And indeed, the NRF says about 80 percent of Halloween shoppers will complete their preparations for the Oct. 31 holiday by the middle of the month. And theyll get creative doing it. People go with whatever is happening now, whatever theyre interested in, and occasionally theyll see like an old movie on TV, and costume accordingly, says Donna Faught, longtime owner of Funtree Costumes, which helped dress partiers, Halloween celebrants and others for more than 40 years before Ms. Faught closed its doors to become a costume consultant for private orders. Last year I had more people I accessorized than I actually put in costumes, she says. People get creative they accessorize not only for fun but because they can save money, too, which is why almost half will be doing their Halloween shopping in discount stores, the NFR says. Goodwill of Southwest Florida, with 30 stores including 26 thrift stores spread across the five-county region Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties has positioned itself to command a significant share of this market in recent years. People might spend $25 or $50 in our stores rather than $50 or $100 elsewhere, says Kirsten ODonnell, marketing director and spokeswoman.Halloween has become so prominent in the Goodwill schedule the stores now order new accessories and extra candy and store employees are asked to put aside donated clothing items through the year they think might have value at Halloween.That makes creative costuming a lot of fun, Ms. ODonnell says, and the thrill of the hunt particularly special, since what customers find can depends on where they are: three stores in Naples, for example on Pine Ridge Road, in the Naples Town Centre and on Ninth Street North might be entirely different than the Charlotte County stores on Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda or Peachland Boulevard in Port Charlotte.For close to a decade weve brought in a small amount of Halloween accessories to all our stores we might have clown noses or pirate hats or a little makeup, she explains.But this year we really made a push to start conserving items for Halloween. So, for example, people sometimes donate wedding dresses, and sometimes theyre in good condition and sometimes not if its yellowed, torn or in some way unsellable, theyre hanging on to those for Halloween. Or it might be something like a velvet jacket, and you know nobody in Florida is going to buy that and wear it when its 95 degrees outside thats for Halloween.

Im Americas oldest brewery, tracing my roots back to 1829, and in 2012 I became the largest U.S.-owned brewery, too. Many people think my name is Chinese, but my founder, who settled in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, hailed from Germany. A fifth-generation family member now runs me, with his daughters. During Prohibition, I switched to making near-beer products, and opened a dairy, too, which remained open until 1985. I began offering ice cream again in 2014, via a company unaffiliated with my brewery. I distribute my beer to 18 states and the District of Columbia. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Maximize Your MedicareAccording to Fidelity Investments, a 65-year-old couple retiring today is estimated to face, on average, lifetime health care costs in retirement of $245,000. That makes Medicare rather important to most of us. Here are some valuable things to know about it. For starters, its critical not to be late when enrolling, as being late can result in more expensive premiums for the rest of your life. (Specifically, your Part B premiums, which cover medical services but not hospital services, can rise by 10 percent for each year that you were eligible for Medicare but didnt enroll.)Youre eligible for Medicare at age 65 and can sign up anytime within the three months leading up to your 65th birthday, during the month of your birthday, or within the three months that follow. If you fail to enroll during these seven months, you can always enroll during the general enrollment period, which is from Jan. 1 through March 31 of each year. (Those still working at 65, with employer-provided health care coverage, or serving as a volunteer abroad, can delay enrolling in Medicare without penalty.) Most people will automatically be enrolled if theyre already receiving Social Security benefits during their enrollment period. Its smart to make the most of what Medicare offers. It entitles you to a free wellness visit with your doctor once a year, so be sure to schedule that. Many important screenings are also free for enrollees. These include mammograms and Pap tests, along with screenings for heart disease, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, depression, hepatitis C, alcohol misuse, HIV, STDs, diabetes and osteoporosis. Take advantage of all the preventive care you can, as it can keep you living longer and paying less for health care, too.Next, choose the coverage that suits you best. Original Medicare is made up of Part A and Part B, which respectively cover hospital and medical services, with many enrollees signing up for Part D (prescription drug coverage) and supplemental Medigap plans, too. Medicare Advantage plans are also an option. Well cover them next week. $213,000, Not $213My dumbest investment involves buying or trying to buy class A shares of Warren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway. I thought they were trading for $213 each, so I ordered nine shares, expecting to pay a little less than $2,000. My broker called me the next day to tell me my order had been canceled because the shares actually cost $213,000 each. The bill would have been close to $2 million!I ended up buying class B shares of Berkshire, without quite understanding the difference, or really what the company even does. Ignorance is not a good idea for an investor, especially one on a very low income like myself. I invested all my money in stocks and then read books about investing afterward. Richard, onlineThe Fool Responds: Warren Buffetts company is one of the biggest in America and is made up of many sturdy businesses, such as insurance, energy and a railroad. Many believe in its long-term potential, but you should invest only after you learn a lot about the company. Buying shares of any company before you really understand it well is a recipe for trouble.Berkshire, like some companies, has multiple classes of its stock. The B shares cost about 1/1, 500th of the price of an A share, and recently traded for $147 apiece. Those A shares were around $220,000. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Berkshire Hathaway.) A Towering OpportunityEvery day, our mobile devices chew through more and more data, and that trend is expected to rise, as faster technologies such as 5G start to take hold. In 2015, average monthly data usage per North American smartphone was 2.4 gigabytes. Thats expected to grow to 14 gigabytes by 2020. Many investors are therefore looking to invest in companies developing the technology that will make that much data usage possible. Technology can rapidly become commoditized, though, shrinking a companys pricing power. So consider American Tower (NYSE: AMT) instead. It offers not the technology that will drive this change, but the infrastructure for it. American Tower builds or buys cellular towers around the world and then leases space on them to local wireless carriers. This model gives it a stable revenue source, as telecom companies sign lease contracts that can be for 20 years or longer. As customers demand more and more data, the property value of these towers will continue to increase, since telecom companies need more installed equipment to handle the required bandwidth. Meanwhile, American Tower is structured as a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), so it throws off cash to fuel a rapidly growing dividend, which recently yielded 1.8 percent. Its unlikely that data usage will shrink in the years ahead, and that bodes well for American Tower. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended American Tower.) I trace my roots back to 1984, when a 19-year-old Texan founded me with $1,000 and started selling computers he assembled from parts from his college dorm room. Four years later, I went public and had a market value of $85 million. In 1997, I shipped my 10 millionth PC, and in 2000, I rang up $40 million in online sales in a single day. In 2001, I became the worlds largest computer systems provider. In 2013, I was taken private by my founder and some others for $24.4 billion, and I just bought data storage giant EMC. Who am I? (Answer: Dell Technologies) Stock Prices, ExplainedQWho sets stock prices? C.B., Kenosha, WisconsinAOnce shares have been sold to the public by a company at a set price via an initial public offering (IPO) or a secondary offering they trade fairly freely in the stock market. As with trading cards and other traded items, their value is simply what people will pay for them. If demand rises or falls, so do their prices. Thats why, if theres bad news about a company, its stock will usually soon be worth less and vice versa. ***QShould I invest in bonds or bond mutual funds? H.T., Warren, OhioALong-term money is likely to grow more quickly in stocks than bonds, but its smart for retirees and near-retirees to hold some bonds. You buy traditional bonds for a fixed sum, and the interest rate tells you exactly how much you can expect to receive. So a $10,000 bond paying 3 percent over 10 years will pay you $300 each year after which youll get your $10,000 back. If you sell the bond before it matures, you might receive more or less than the $10,000. Bond mutual funds, often called fixed-income funds, can be more volatile. The monthly income they generate will typically fluctuate as prevailing interest rates change and as the fund manager buys and sells various bonds using his or her judgment. Bond funds charge annual expense fees, too, though some are quite low. Bond funds offer instant diversification, but individual bonds permit you to plan your financial future more precisely. Riskier bonds have higher interest rates, while U.S. Treasury bonds tend to have low rates. Learn more at finra.org/investors/ bonds and get additional retirement guidance at fool.com/retirement.

Kalea Bay, a gated high-rise community on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, recently celebrated the topping off of its first residential tower. Inga Wilson, vice president of sales and marketing for the community, says the tower is on target for completion next fall. It will have 120 residences with Gulf of Mexico and nature preserve views in 20 stories above two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available, with prices starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are four-bedroom/ four-bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with threebedrooms plus den and 3 baths, have 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residences in Kalea Bay have private elevators 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.The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center, Ms. Wilson says. Each master suite has an oversized walk-in closet, a soaking tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower. Rooftop amenities include a sky lounge, swimming pool and an open-air fitness center. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot community clubhouse area is slated for completion around the same timeframe as the first tower. It will feature 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. A tennis pavilion and pickleball courts will be nearby, as will 24 guest suites.

Whats going on right now is what some would consider the minutiae of growing an arts organization in the form of hard-hat areas, moving trucks and boxes, new equipment, service areas and collaborations. Even if the audience doesnt immediately recognize the value of these changes, these purpose-driven redirects enhance the communitys cultural experience. Here are some examples of artfully orchestrated productions happening behind the scenes. The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre Since its 1993 debut, the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers has seen its share of renovations, starting with the initial overhaul that transformed the space from a Publix supermarket into a viable and vastly popular dinner theater. Later in the 1990s, the dinner theater added the Off-Broadway Palm black box theater, a community room, an art gallery and the Caf Cabaret, used for Off-Broadway Palm dining and off-hours social functions. This summer, the Broadway Palm underwent a quietly blanketed major renovation that has transformed all but the main theater and dining area. Gone are most of the walls on the east side of the building, where the art gallery and Caf Cabaret once were. What was the Caf Cabaret dining room is now a SEE VENUES, C20 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre has undergone a major renovation this summer.

Forge. 320 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. This latest Kirk McGarvey novel is a major tour de force for its prolific and widely praised author. Sarasota-based David Halberg seems to dare himself with the riskiest premise, leaving readers to wonder if he can manage those selfmade challenges of plotting, suspense and characters at the edge of plausible definition. What kind of serial killer leaves his mark by eating through the faces and throats of his victims? Is this a mania or a message? Its easy for the top strata of CIA insiders to understand the common denominators that define the victim pool. They are all a certain kind of CIA outside insider; that is, they are (or were) NOCs, agents who work under Non-Official Cover. These are operatives who assume covert roles in organizations without official ties to the government. Some, including several in this novel, are somehow repatriated into normal roles within the CIA. Seven such agents have something else in common: They were all part of or knew about an operation in Kirkuk, the major Iraqi petroleum center. Something was buried above the city just before the Second Gulf War, and its discovery and implementation threaten to set off World War Final. Whore you gonna call? In a Kirk McGarvey novel, youre gonna call Kirk, a former CIA director who is often brought in on special cases. And once you call Kirk, youre gonna hear from his occasional squeeze, Pete Boylan, a brave and beautiful agent who will inevitably get in Kirks way emotionally, that is. Though this thriller has international sweep, taking readers to Greece, France, Israel and other locations, many scenes are set at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., just outside Washington, D.C. In these scenes, the authoritative detail is compelling (whether it is truly accurate or not is another matter). Whether hes presenting extended vistas of the campus, its main buildings/outbuildings or interior offices and meeting rooms, Mr. Hagberg puts us right on the spot. Security and other technical features are highlighted, and the reality of the CIA characters is enhanced by the way they relate to their environment. In the courtyard at CIA headquarters stands Kryptos, a piece of statuary designed to reveal important secrets of if it can be decoded. Its four engraved copper panels, once deciphered, predict the means and purpose of the serial killings. Re-writing history is part of the agenda. Who is behind all this? Could it be one of the NOCs? It so, then logically the killer would be the last NOC standing. Could it be the person who was the handler for this highly skilled group? Or someone outside the group who has somehow gleaned the nature and methodology of the operations, someone with a list of names and the means to find undercover operatives? The assassinations seem to be driven by a timetable. For Kirk and Pete, not knowing the timetable only makes their task more urgent. As the gruesome corpses are discovered, they mark the time until the end game is played out. Kirk expresses his thoughts about the NOCs at length. Heres an excerpt:They were more likely than the average person to explode in road rage, or become drunks or drug addicts. Half of them walked around feeling superior to the rest of the world, while the other half slunk into dark alleys, their eyes downcast, convinced they were not better than pond scum. A few became thieves. And a few became murderers. Yet without them, we would lose the same war we had been fighting for twoplus centuries. Not all of the seven NOCs are described in detail, but a few are and their character traits are true to this overview. They also demonstrate superior tradecraft in spite of being killed off by the mysterious assassin. The most exotic of the group is the only woman, Alex, who for long stretches of the novel becomes a third major character. She also falls under suspicion. Her background of childhood abuse plants the seeds for the seductive killing machine she has become. Like the ticking timer on a bomb, Mr. Hagbergs plotting and prose rhythms accelerate to a crescendo of excitement and revelation of what? Find out for yourself. And be prepared to be shocked.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYlove and loss and how the kind of choices we make in our life define who we are. Mr. Nickell, former artistic associate for Gulfshore Playhouse, and his real-life wife, Kate Eastwood Norris, co-star in the two-hander that opens the companys 2016-17 season at The Norris Center. Because of playwright Nick Paynes brilliant convention, he adds, We see these two people as they make different choices in their life and how it affects the trajectory of their life, either together or separately. In other words, There are multiple universes. Thats the science version. As Ms. Norriss character explains: Several outcomes can co-exist simultaneously. And the play shows a variety of them in the life of Roland and Marianne. Every choice we make, we think there would be only one outcome, says Ms. Norris. Its not a matter of, if we make this choice, this possibility exists. Instead, according to theoretical science, an infinite number of possibilities exist, not just one. Its pretty mind blowing. Theatergoers shouldnt be worried about having to listen to scientific dialogue too dense to comprehend, however. Ultimately, were talking about, in the end, a very simple and straightforward play: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, Mr. Nickell says. Its just the two of us even though it may seem at first glance that its about this big scientific idea. Its really about the human condition. Ms. Norris thinks Constellations is about relationships and their complexity, and how a relationship can change over time. We keep being in a different reality (with each new scene), but at its core, its about the complexities of a relationship over time. I think pretty much anyone can understand that one. Each new scene presents a new universe. In some iterations Marianne and Roland stay together, in others they break up. Scenes and dialogue repeat, only to veer off into different directions. It was very, very, very difficult to memorize, Ms. Norris says about the script. I just did Hamlet, and that was a piece of cake compared to this. She and her husband performed in Hamlet and A Midsummer Nights Dream over the summer for Santa Cruz Shakespeare in Santa Cruz, Calif. He describes Constellations as an exercise in using my actor brain and body in a way I didnt before. Its the first time the two have worked together in a twoperson play. Its pretty special, Mr. Nickells says. It feels like Im able to trust and act best myself in ways that are maybe easier or safer or new, because its me and Kate. If I were doing this with someone else, Id be imagining Cody, Ms. Norris says. Theres a scene where he asks me to marry him about five times, and in one of them I say yes. Its fun to do, and if I were with another actor, Id be thinking about when Cody proposed. But now I can just look up and there he is, and thats really nice. It feels very personal, our life playing out in a funny way. Mr. Nickell, whos performed for three years running in the one-man show Jacob Marleys Christmas Carol at Gulfshore Playhouse, is glad to reconnect with director Matt Pfeiffer, who directed him at the venues production of The Whipping Man. Wed been looking for a project to get back together on, he says. Im excited to explore the hyper-realistic, really truthful acting style weve been messing around with. The numerous short scenes, he says, are cumulative. A whole character is built from these patchwork scenes, he explains. Asked whether theyre portraying different people in different universes, or the same people, Ms. Norris says, I think Im the same person the whole time, if we go with the idea that our choices make us who we are. Sometimes Im a broken person, because of my circumstances, my choices; other times Im a happy person for the same reason. Its all those complexities that make up a person. We never sound the same. We go through life changing. Were in a different universe. The creative team uses lighting (Steve TenEyck) and sound (Evan Middlesworth) to build a different vocabulary so audiences can tell the various universes apart from each other. Subtle movement from the two players also help tell the story, Mr. Nickell says. The small stage (David Arsenault) at The Norris Center is made even more intimate as the two perform on a circular disc thats 12 feet across. They use the whole area, keeping the performance as fluid and subtle as possible. Mr. Nickell believes the subtlety of the play and the starkness of the writing are among its greatest strengths. Our acting style, as well as the design elements, attempt to mirror that, he says. Its an exciting puzzle for the audience. Constellations premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in January 2012 and moved to the West End at the end of the year. It was named Best Play for the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, making its 29-year-old playwright the youngest recipient of that award. It opened on Broadway in January 2015 and closed three months later. Ben Brantley of The New York Times wrote the play gets into your head and under your skin with an immediacy that sometimes tickles and often hurts. Who knew that high physics could be so sexy, so accessible and so emotionally devastating! Mr. Nickell says working on Constellations has made him realize that, I cant spend too much time thinking of all the possibilities of who I might be, but it has made me acutely aware of who I am right now Are we just particles being knocked about, or are we sentient beings that are in charge of our own destiny? Thats absolutely one of the main themes of the play: Do we have any choice and do we have any control? Whether or not we do, how do we manifest that in a world where clearly not much is in our control? To think that ours is the only reality seems simplistic, Ms. Norris says. How do we know? My dad would say, The more you know, the more you know you dont know. I fully believe that. Its freeing to think that Im not so in charge. Its kind of freeing to experience, rather than assume theres big hand of fate moving me along. Im not Macbeth.

Big news about free concerts in Cambier Park bandshellThe Naples Big Band, formerly known as the Music Makers Show Band, kicks off a new season of free concerts Sunday afternoon, Oct. 23, in the bandshell at Cambier Park. The band toots its own horn by announcing a fun and more contemporary approach to classic performance under the new musical direction of Jim Castaldi. Mr. Castaldi is a veteran trumpet and flugelhorn lead with the Music Makers as well as the Gulf Coast Big Band, Naples Concert Band and Paradise Brass Quintet. Also for the 2016-17 season, Amy Bright returns as the bands lead vocalist. The Naples Big Band will continue to engage the expected audience of Big Band enthusiasts born prior to and within the Baby Boomer generation, but they also seek to attract a younger audience who appreciate nostalgia and good, old-fashioned musicianship that has a noticeable lack of electronic enhancement. As the auto-tune mentality increases in popularity, there is a very significant movement among music lovers toward what the current generation might call nostalgia or retro, but what we the purists would call well, M-U-S-I-C, Ms. Bright says. As of late, she adds, even our mainstream youth and/or millennial generation are finding it increasingly cool to own classic vinyl LPs. It seems like theres an increasing interest in the beautiful imperfections of the non-digital world. Upon first glance, a younger audience will surmise that the Naples Big Band looks old. And theyll be correct. After all, the median age of instrumentalists in the band is 65. And yet, musically, these guys have the attitudes of their younger, more vibrant selves at age 25 or 30, Ms. Bright says, not to mention the musical chops that many instrumentalists can only dream about. After the seasons opener from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 23, the free Sunday afternoon concerts will continue on Jan. 29 at Cambier Park, Feb. 5 and 19 at Riverside Park in Bonita Springs and March 26 back at Cambier Park. Free Monday evening concerts, new for 2016-17, are set for Cambier Park from 7-9 p.m. on Nov. 14, Dec. 12, Jan. 23, Feb. 13, March 6 and April 10. Although admission is free, donations collected during intermission benefit the bands music scholarship program and also help offset the cost of stage rental and other expenses. The nonprofit band comprised of more than 20 professional musicians is also available to hire for private parties, fundraisers, festivals and special events of all types.

Hilton Naples ARTS COMMENTARYLaughing with Erma Bombeck at Florida Repertory TheatreMaking someone laugh is no small feat. Consistently making them laugh continually is even more impressive. At the height of her popularity, humor columnist Erma Bombeck accomplished that at least twice a week in 900 newspapers across the United States and Canada. She did it by telling the truth about motherhood and family life, demonstrating the adage that the more specific you are, the more universal your appeal. It was Erma who wrote: Housework can kill you if done right and Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth. Shed also toss off lines such as, I come from a family where gravy is a beverage and God created man, but I could do better. You dont have to be a mother to appreciate her humor; anyone whos ever lived in a family can relate to her writing. Her columns adorned refrigerator doors in homes coast-to-coast. Erma Bombeck: At Wits End is an intimate look at the woman whose words resounded with so many. Written by twin sisters Allison Engel and Margaret Engel, the play is having its southeastern U.S. premiere in Fort Myers. The one-woman production stars Carrie Lund, and its a perfect marriage of her humor and Bombecks. Ms. Lund, as evidenced in previous shows at Florida Rep, possesses great comedic delivery. But this role is more challenging than others, as the total weight of the script is on her shoulders. Plus, she has to recreate Bombecks personality, so she cant be snide or arch or deliver a line in a way that would be out of character. Under Michael Marottas direction, Ms. Lund goes through a variety of emotions: wistfulness, exasperation, gratitude, resolve. In the small studio space, were onlookers to the Bombeck home in Dayton, Ohio, skillfully designed by Jordan Moore. At one end: a bedroom, where Erma does her writing (manual typewriter perched on top of an ironing board.) At the other: a vintage kitchen, complete with white Formica table, aqua cabinets and refrigerator (decorated with childrens drawings and a handwritten grocery list). The living room is midtheater, complete with TV Guides and magazines of the era. No detail is overlooked, The show starts a little slow, with Bombeck speaking to her invisible family, sending them off to school and work. But the pace picks up when its just her and the audience. An upbeat, positive woman, she came from difficult beginnings. She was born to a teenage mother, and her father died when she was 9. But I loved this little factoid: As a girl, Erma earned money by tap dancing on a radio program; apparently Americans were so in love with tap dancing theyd even listen to it on the radio. (Better that than a mime, I guess.) Although she was thrilled with being a mother, Erma longed for more. She began writing a column for her weekly paper, which paid her $3 a submission. Then the Dayton Herald asked her to write for them, and she wrote two weekly columns for $50. After only a few weeks, her columns went into national syndication to 36 papers. And her popularity grew. And grew. Her books The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank, If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits? and Aunt Ermas Cope Book, to name just a few became bestsellers. Her appeal: Erma told the truth about what its like to be a wife and mother. She loved both roles dearly, but the endless housekeeping wasnt a constant ecstasy the way it was for women in magazines and commercials. Her take on it all? My theory on housework is, if the item doesnt multiply, smell, catch fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? Ms. Lund does a funny impersonation of the perfect woman in those commercials, vacuuming her living room rug as if it makes her deliriously happy. But at times I felt bad for the actress, whos a flurry of motion, setting the table, clearing the table, vacuuming, tidying up, folding laundry, ironing. It was tiring to just watch her. Were chuckling before the play even begins, as Bombecks words are projected onto the walls. (During the show, theyre replaced by images of people such as Shirley Temple, Gloria Steinem and Bella Abzug, as Bombeck narrates her life through the decades.) Why was she so popular? The key to my writing is: Im ordinary, she confesses. She seems most at home seated behind her manual typewriter, keys click-clacking as she writes her column. (Her children, told not to bother her unless theres an emergency, slide her notes under the bedroom door.) Erma Bombeck was a woman of her time. She heard Betty Friedan speak and, like many other women, had her consciousness raised. In the 0s, she became involved in the Presidential Advisory Committee for Women and traveled around the country speaking on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment. (Its amazing to hear how modern some of the arguments against it sound the same comments being made today against gay marriage and unisex bathrooms.) The play, named after Bombecks column, is a whirlwind tour through the humorists life. It cleverly blends her witty observations and one-liners into the monologue. Florida Rep knows its audience; women (and some men) of a certain age laughed in recognition at the lines and situations. I couldnt help but wonder how this play would be received by a younger demographic who grew up with cutting, snarky humor and might not know even who Erma Bombeck was. And I also wondered, if she had lived, what she wouldve thought of our current political situation; though her columns werent political, she was. With only 70 minutes to cover an entire life, its only inevitable some things are left out. The play doesnt mention, for example, that Bombeck made anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million a year during the 1980s, or that she appeared twice a week on Good Morning America from 1975 to 1986. It does include her battle with breast cancer and later, her struggle with kidney disease, but not that at least 30 readers offered to donate a kidney to her (unfortunately, none were a match). It does include lines from her famous column, If I Had My Life to Live Over, a powerful reminder to focus on the things that are truly important. Erma Bombeck told us, If you can laugh at it, you can live with it. She helped us through the rough spots and let us know we werent alone.Dont missConstellations is playing at Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples through Oct. 30. This two-hander, starring Cody Nickell and Kate Eastwood Norris, is like a master class in acting, as they portray the same two characters in alternate realities. Performing on a bare stage with a minimal set (just a backdrop that is lyrical/mathematical/cosmological) and no props, they manage to captivate us and transport us to various scenes in different locales and times. I suspect the only reason they didnt receive a standing ovation on opening night was because people were stunned and too moved to leap to their feet. See story on C1 for more details. And, dont forget the Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota, Oct. 13-16. With cutting-edge music, modern dance, theater and hybrid performances rarely seen in Florida, its highly innovative and highly recommended. I make a point to never miss it.

But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Mars, your ruling planet, begins a journey that will open up a growing number of possibilities. Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your hearts content. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And dont forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree. BORN THIS WEEK: You are impelled by a need to find truth, no matter how elusive. You would make a wonderful research scientist or an intrepid detective. SEE ANSWERS, C11SEE ANSWERS, C11

The deal could be regarded as more amusing than instructive, but it is published here so that our readers will have some idea of how the other half lives. North was Tony Priday, partnered by G.C.H. Fox, both well-known international players. As to what happened on the deal, No. 13 in the match, we couldnt possibly do better to describe it than did Ewart Kempson, whose witty account appeared in the British Bridge Magazine, of which he was the editor. Sitting North and playing Acol, Mr. Priday opened the bidding smartly with one heart. Maybe Im a bit old-fashioned, but to my way of thinking, one club is a better bid. It is true that the club suit is not as good as the heart suit this is probably what influenced Mr. Priday but I always think one should prepare for a rebid when opening, and if South responds one diamond, North is free to rebid one heart if the other inmates dont mind. East had the temerity to bid one notrump, which South doubled. It seemed to the deafened spectators that Mr. Fox was not doubling for takeout. A swift redouble by West allowed Mr. Priday to show his other suit with a corking bid of two clubs. This infuriated Mr. Fox into two notrump, which was defeated by three tricks undoubled. Why Mr. Fox bid only two notrump on his 17-point hand after Mr. Priday had opened vulnerable is one of those unsolved and unsavoury crimes which will remain in the open files at Scotland Yard probably forever.

FILM CAPSULESMiss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children (Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterfield) Teenager Jake (Mr. Butterf ield) ventures off to join Miss Peregrine (Ms. Green) and other children with peculiar abilities, only to find a madman (Mr. Jackson) trying to harness those abilities for himself. It has the visual flair you expect from director Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland), but too many lulls in the story make it a sluggish watch. Rated PG-13.Deepwater Horizon (Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell) Negligence and avarice lead to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oilrig off the coast of Louisiana in 2010. Based on the true story of the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. The visual effects are fine, but the story strains for emotion and audience investment. Rated PG-13.Storks (Voices of Andy Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell) A stork (Mr. Samberg) and a girl (Katie Crown) encounter a wolf pack and other obstacles as they struggle to deliver a baby. The 3D animation is crisp, its funny, and kids will get a kick out of it, but best of all theres plenty to relate to for parents. Rated PG.Bridget Joness Baby (Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey) 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. It a funny and fitting end to the only romantic comedy trilogy in recent memory. Rated R.The Girl On The Train (Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson) Alcoholic stalker Rachel (Ms. Blunt) is knocked out, battered and bruised at the same time and in the same area that a local woman (Ms. Bennett) goes missing. The suspense is flat, largely because Rachel is such a head case that we cant believe anything she thinks or says. Based on the Paula Hawkins novel. Rated R.Sully 1/2(Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney) Pilot Chesley Sully Sullenberger (Mr. Hanks) and co-pilot Jeff Skiles (Mr. Eckhart) heroic landing of a US Air flight on the Hudson River in New York City in January 2009 is recounted and investigated in director Clint Eastwoods (Gran Torino) latest. The story is thin and too much time is spent on the investigation early on, but the landing, rescue and resolution will put a lump in your throat. 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 are 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.

LATEST FILMSThe Birth Of A NationIs it worth $10? YesWatching a movie about slavery is never easy. The better ones, such as Best Picture Oscar winner (and my pick for best film of 2013) Years A Slave, make you furious at the injustice and leave you in disbelief that something so awful could have occurred. Although The Birth Of A Nation does not reach that level of fury, it is a compelling story about a slave who led an uprising that killed 60 white people in 1831 Virginia. Like Years its based on a true story.Nat Turner (Nate Parker) is a field slave. As a child he was taught to read the Bible by the matriarch (Penelope Ann Miller) at his plantation, and now he regularly leads fellow slaves in prayer. Hes pretty good at it. So good, in fact, that his owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), rents him out to preach at nearby plantations.As far as slave owners go, the Turners arent bad. They dont demean, urinate on or sleep with their slaves, so relatively speaking Nat leads a decent life. When he ventures out and sees the conditions in which other slaves live, however, hes appalled. He sees his figurative brothers and sisters in tattered rags for clothes, being verbally abused and, in one instance, food being funneled down a mans throat after his teeth are knocked because he refuses to eat. Later, a visiting plantation owner rapes a friends wife, and Nat is whipped for doing what he believes is the Lords work. Through it all, the Bible is Nats guide, and he feels blessed to have a loving wife (Aja Naomi King) and daughter. Yet he also believes God wants him to do something about the horrible social wrong of slavery. So he leads a rebellion. This is where the film gets questionable. Movies are a reflection of the time and society in which theyre made, and people will rightly derive racial tension and inequality from The Birth Of A Nation. But will people also make the connection that using the Bible to justify murder, as Nat does, could be seen as similar to modern-day Muslim extremists using the Koran for the same purpose? Even if they have a valid reason (and slaves certainly do), making heroes of people who murder in the name of religion as opposed to doing it just for vengeance is a dangerous message to send. The Birth of a Nation is top notch in terms of production value, with the costumes, production design and cinematography nicely evoking a sense of the era. The performances are not impressive but are sufficient, especially Mr. Parker, who also serves as the films producer, director and co-writer. One quibble is that the story is aimless at times, with one awful thing happening after another and no sign of change in sight. It gets there eventually, of course, but a stronger narrative thrust would have allowed for greater viewer interest throughout.The title is taken from D.W. Griffiths controversial 1915 film of the same name, which set the precedent for modern filmmaking and was a deeply unsettling tribute to the KKK in the Reconstruction South. Mr. Parkers intention here, no doubt, is to re-appropriate the title with a narrative in which African-Americans rise up for the sake of their own, similar to the KKK in the original. What he actually accomplishes is debatable, but we can hope that this films message of unity, not violence, is what perseveres. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Nate Parkers The Birth Of A Nation won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, after which Fox Searchlight acquired it for $17.5 million.

Theyre both dotted with palm trees and beaches, lovely homes, fine restaurants and resorts. Now, their connection is a bridge and a chamber of commerce and the feeling of subtropical tranquility. Actually, until a 1926 hurricane blasted them apart, they were one island. Now, theyre two, but they share a lifestyle and more. Until 1963, the islands could be reached only by boat. But a causeway linked Sanibel to the mainland in 1963 and many things changed. More people moved there and more tourists visited. Many of those residents and visitors are often spotted doing the Sanibel Stoop, walking along an island beach collecting shells. Sanibel is one of the worlds top shelling destinations and home of the Bailey-Mathews National Shell Museum, the only such museum in the country. Sanibel is also home to J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a pristine retreat where more than 220 species of birds can be found.

CELEBRITY EXTRAKeifer for president BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: While I am of course happy to see Kiefer Sutherland in Designated Survivor, I was thrilled to see that the gorgeous and talented Natascha McElhone plays his wife in the series. She was exceptional in Californication. Please tell me this new show will be around for a while. Jake L., via emailA: ABC has ordered the dramatic political thriller for a full-season pickup, so we know itll be around for at least 22 episodes. Kiefer plays a low-level Cabinet member who becomes president of the United States after a catastrophic attack on the Capitol during the presidents State of the Union Address kills everyone above him in the presidential line of succession. Q: I was so happy to see Jon Huertas from Castle show up on This Is Us so soon after his shows cancelation. The bonus is that This Is Us is my favorite new show. Do you have any scoops about the series? Daniella T., via emailA: Critics and fans agree with your praise of This Is Us. The NBC series quickly scored an 18-episode full-season order, which means well get to spend many hours with triplets Kate, Kevin and Randall, as well as parents Jack and Rebecca. Im curious to see how Jons character, Miguel, fits in, since we found out in present-day scenes that Jack and Rebecca are no longer together (either because of divorce or Jacks death), and Rebecca is now married to Miguel. It also was announced recently that True Blood alum Sam Trammell will join This Is Us toward the end of the year as Ben, the sexy frontman for a popular jazz/blues band. As of this writing there is no further word on how his character will fit into the cast of the family-centered dramedy, or whether he will appear in present-day scenes or the 1980s flashback scenes.

What is the meaning of Kakiemon? Sakaida Kakiemon (1596-1666) was a potter who worked in Japan in the early 17th century. He and his family painted porcelain made in the town of Arita. Kakiemon wares were painted over the glaze using blue, red, green, yellow and black, and sometimes with gilding. Designs were asymmetrical and sparse, so there was a lot of white space as part of the design. The style was so popular it was copied by many English and German factories, and 19th-century copies are very similar to early designs. A collector today may identify a plate as Kakiemon if it is in the style of the early pieces. But the description used by a museum also includes the name of the European maker. Meissen (German), Chantilly and Mennecy (French), and Chelsea, Bow and Worcester (English) all made early collectible copies. Collectors pay high prices for the 18thand early 19th-century pieces. A nine-inch Meissen plate made about 1740 with a tiger, bamboo and flower decoration sold at a Brunk auction for $6,500. Q: What is the value of a Fowlers Cherry Smash syrup dispenser? It was used at a soda fountain counter. Its about 17 inches tall. Theres a pump at the top and it reads Always drink Fowlers Cherry Smash our nations beverage on the front and back. There is a 5-cent symbol on both sides and three cherries with stems. Underneath the base it reads John E. Fowler, Richmond Va., to be used by Cherry Smash only. A: At one time, Cherry Smash was the second most popular soft drink in the U.S. The name was registered by John E. Fowler in 1909. The company moved from Richmond to Rosslyn, Va., in 1920. After Prohibition ended in 1933, Fowler started the Dixie Brewing Corp., but no beer was ever brewed there. Cherry Smash was produced until 1935. Your dispenser was made before that. Value is $2,000 to $3,000. Q: What can you tell me about Splashme dolls? Ive seen these little seated figures online and would like to know who made them and how old they are. A: Splashme dolls were designed in 1917 by Genevieve Pfeffer (1890-1985), who used Gene George as her business name. The dolls shape, with head in hands and elbows on knees, is based on Rose ONeills Kewpie doll The Thinker. The dolls were made of bisque, composition or plaster of paris, had painted features and wore painted bathing suits and bathing shoes. Splashme dolls with a mohair wig or a scarf were first made in 1918. Pfeffer also wrote books about the Splashme dolls. Splashme doll baby talcum containers, soap, party favors, postcards, and other items were made. The dolls sell today for $35 to $50. Q: I have an unusual piece of furniture I use as a china cabinet. I think it was originally a display case for billiard cue sticks. The name on the drawers is R. Rothschilds Sons, Chicago, Cincinnati, which I think was a manufacturer of poolroom supplies. Can you tell me something about this company? A: R. Rothschild founded his company in Cincinnati in 1866. The company was one of the largest manufacturers of fixtures and equipment for bars and saloons. After Rothschild died in 1881, his sons took over the business and opened a branch in Chicago. R. Rothschilds Sons had two locations in Cincinnati, one that sold everything necessary to furnish a saloon complete and one that sold furniture, carpet, stoves and other goods. The company was making furniture for banks and offices by 1885. Rothschilds Sons went bankrupt in 1897. Q: My mother used to have a crownshaped bottle of Prince Matchabelli perfume on her dresser. I have an empty bottle. Is it worth anything? A: Prince Georges Matchabelli immigrated to the United States from Russia in 1921 with his wife Norina. She was an actress who used the stage name Maria Carmi. They opened an antiques store in New York City and he also made perfume for friends. He started the Prince Matchabelli Perfume Co. in 1926. Norina designed the crown-shape bottle. The first bottles were porcelain, later glass, made in Germany. Georges died in 1935 and the company was sold several times. It became part of Parfums de Coeur in 1993. They kept the crown as the bottle stopper. The bottle price depends on size, condition including label and if there is perfume in it. It could be worth $50 to $550. Tip: Your cell phones camera is a magnifying glass. Focus on the marking you want to read and go in for a close-up. It is great for ceramics or prints, but a little difficult for metal because of glare. No need for a ruler and a magnifier anymore. Now you can go to a show with a dollar bill (a 6-inch ruler) and a phone. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. Names, addresses or email addresses will not be published.

Paid: $20 The Skinny: I really wanted this to be a Madame Alexander Nina Ballerina. Like Nina, this 17-inch doll has a blond wig and is made of hard plastic, a material that became popular after World War II. Like Nina, this doll is exquisitely costumed in satin and netting. But most Alexander dolls are tagged and marked, and this one has no markings that I can find. American Character made its Sweet Sue line of dolls that look very much like the Alexanders, so this may be one of those, though they also generally were marked. Either way, a mystery is something that keeps me on my toes just like Nina. Scott SimmonsTHE FIND:If the devastation of Hurricane Matthew teaches us anything, its that nothing lasts forever. I thought about that as I prepared my house for the storm, hanging storm panels, and screwing down awnings. I moved Grandmas Moorcroft pottery lamp she always called it the good lamp from its perch atop an antique chest to a safer spot on the bedroom floor. I could do that much. As I write this I remember the stories my family shared with me of storms past. My Grandpa Simmons weathered the 1928 hurricane in the brand-new Pahokee High School building. The women and children took shelter in interior hallways, he said, and the men spent the night of the storm mopping the rainwater that blew in around the windows. He was 21 years old and witness to a disaster that claimed thousands of lives. During the 1947 hurricane, my Uncle Thurmond Knight, who had rented a house in Palm Beach for the summer, thought he would be smart and park his brand-new Cadillac along Ocean Boulevard, so it would not be flooded. He stepped outside after the storm, and his car looked fine until he walked around the side that facing east. The beach sand had blasted all the paint down to the raw sheet metal. My mothers family moved to Fort Myers in 1958. When Hurricane Donna roared through in 1960, Grandmas Moorcroft lamp got tucked in a closet, along with all the drapes; the piano and oriental carpet were placed on blocks in the event of flooding. Grandpa went down to the boat basin to check on his vessel during the calm as the eye of the storm passed, and Grandma fretted about his being out during the storm. As it happened, there was no flooding in East Fort Myers, and my grandparents lived another 40 years to tell the story of how the Coleman lantern they used to light the house burned so brightly the neighbors thought their power had been restored before anyone elses. As for the Moorcroft lamp, I hope it survives this and all other storms. But if not, I have the memory of this treasure and the pleasure of having owned it. No storm can take that away. Late 1940s hard plastic ballerina doll SCOTT SIMMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis hard plastic doll probably was made by Madame Alexander or American Character in the late 1940s or early s.

The former community room is now the Sabal Palm Room, which seats 40 for breakfasts, lunches, parties and business/board meetings. Half-day rentals of the Royal Palm and Sabal Palm rooms are $500 and $250 respectively. The fees can be defrayed, however, by food and beverage service, with prices ranging from about $12.95 per person for breakfast to about $22.95 per person for dinner. Because the Royal Palm Room seats up to 140 and will have advanced technical capabilities, the venue is considering making it available for small acts such as comedy, improv and murder mystery shows and even wedding receptions and business meetings. A secondary entrance on the east side of the building will facilitate the comings and goings of guests of the Royal Palm and Sabal Palm rooms and alleviate crowd congestion in the main lobby when shows and meetings are being held concurrently. In about a year from now, Mr. Prather says, the theaters entire main dining room will be completely redesigned, with a contemporary look to produce a quality dining room experience for a new generation of audiences. TheatreZoneThis professional company operates out of the G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples, where a much-needed scene shop has been added to facilitate the backstage work for its productions. Ideally, says Mark Danni, TheatreZones artistic director and CSN drama instructor, youd have a space attached to the theater to roll sets in and out. But since that is not a practical possibility, Theatre Zone has added an offsite scene shop in the Hideaway Storage Facility about three miles from its main stage, which has the lighting and power necessary for its designers and artists to use tools to build and paint sets. Working from one show to the next, Mr. Danni foresees the design space will be occupied by set craftsmen every day in season. Weve also upgraded our headset communication system, he says, noting the $800 enhancement facilitates communication between stage manager, lighting and sound crews and spotlight operators.The Naples PlayersThe Sugden Community Theatre, home of The Naples Players, was a cutting-edge facility when it opened in 1998. At that time, everything we put in was state-of-the-art, but technology has changed, Executive Director John Sorey says by way of explaining the need for recent upgrades to the lighting and sound systems. By switching to a digital sound system and replacing incandescent, nonstage lights with LED bulbs, Mr. Sorey says, he anticipates the organization will see a four-year payback on the investment through reduced electricity bills.

MANN PERFORMING ARTS HALLOct. 12 opening of The Rocky Horror Show.Theatre Conspiracy Alliance for the ArtsWith a mission to produce edgy, groundbreaking and original plays, Bill Taylor launched Theatre Conspiracy in 1993 at the Foulds Theatre at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. These many years later, the troupe and its host venue are embarking on a new collaboration. A new box office and reception area now serves the program needs of both the alliance and Theatre Conspiracy and allows for more gallery/exhibit space where the theater companys box office used to be. In addition, the ticketing of Theatre Conspiracy productions is now handled by the alliance. It was a natural fit to collaborate on administration, says Lydia Black, executive director of the Lee County Alliance for the Arts. Bill and the alliance have had a long relationship, she says, noting that combining administrative functions allows each organization to present a better product. Renovations were also made inside the 135-seat Foulds Theatre, with new, elevated seating making the back of the house a much more pleasing place to be seated, Mr. Taylor says. That move necessitated raising the level of the technical booth above the audience, and that gave us an opportunity to rewire the booth, he says, adding the new $4,000 computerized light board is basically like using a computer versus a slide rule. Though transparent to most audiences, improvements such as these create a richer experience for Theatre Conspiracy audiences and guests of the Alliance for the Arts, overall.

Good years, bad years, even mediocre years its tough to keep all that information straight in your head. Besides, does it really matter? Ive found that theres no better way to learn vintages than simply letting nature take its course. Every year, trailing the calendar by a few months to several years, each new vintage comes through the pipeline, bringing its own surprises and teaching us its particular lessons through tasting. Its a good opportunity to make a few points about vintage and its place in wine appreciation. Live through a few vintages, learn them in your glass, and before long you realize that you do have a lot of that info in your head. But first, lets tick off a few random bullet points about some ways that wine lovers use and abuse information about vintages. Vintage, the year shown on the bottle of most fine wines, reflects the year in which the grapes were picked. Since wine grapes are an agricultural product, weather conditions can have a significant effect on the wine. For example, a summer of extreme heat in Europe can result in very ripe fruit, which may not necessarily be a blessing, as overripe grapes tend to make fat, lower-acid wines. All weather, like all politics, is local. One regions terrible vintage may be decent in another and excellent in a third. A lackluster year in Napa may be very good in Bordeaux, or vice versa. Indeed, when we mention intense summer heat in Europe, remember that were talking only about a certain region. Maybe that same growing season was excellent in South Africa, and difficult in much of California and Down Under. We need to be specific. Vintage quality works only as a broad generalization. Some producers make excellent wines in poor vintages, and a few make stinkers in cant miss years. Moreover, the storm or frost that devastated vines in one village may have missed its neighbor. Its rare to have a vintage so poor that consumers have to write it off entirely. The 1997 vintage in Bordeaux comes close to this mark, when even the prestigious First Growth wines were very disappointing. But now and then we can find value by cherrypicking better wines from vintages that conventional wisdom says to avoid. Trust your own taste buds more than vintage charts. Famous wine professionals like Robert Parker may highly rate a vintage that produced big, strong and ripe wines in France, which drives up prices. But what if you dont share his affection for bold, concentrated wines? There are only two kinds of wines: the ones you like and the ones you dont. Here are some we recently liked very much: Les Dauphins Ctes du Rhne Rserve Blanc NV ($11) This unique blend of traditional white grapes from the Rhone Valley offers typical Viognier floral aromas, with a palate of white flowers, medium body and refreshing acidity.

WW 90.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Ive seen professional wine critics put their noses all the way down inside a glass and take some sniffs. Why do wine tasters smell wine? Robert, Fort MyersA. The aromas of a wine can give you a good hint about how it will taste even where it was made and how old it might be. Besides, 85 percent of your sense of taste is actually smell. Most often, a wines aromas (or bouquet or nose) indicate what were going to taste, but sometimes the taste will be very different. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

CHEF Q&AAndy Hyde: Infusing his menus with his multicultural upbringing BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comIt started with the sort of low-frequency rumbling that precedes an earthquake, but Chef Andy Hydes reputation as a sleeping culinary giant in Naples finally exploded this summer when his name kept hitting Florida Weeklys inboxes with such frequency that we had to take notice. Sure, we knew that Chef Hydes food at the Wine Loft of Naples has garnered plenty of praise, but now that his consultancy with the establishment is coming to an end, hes focusing on his catering business, Chef Hyde Gourmet. Born in Accra, Ghana, and trained in Germany, he developed his distinctive style alongside his multicultural upbringing. His resume includes Gordon Ramseys London Hotel in Los Angeles and the three-star Michelinrated Alinea in Chicago. Read on to find out what he offers and how you can get a taste. Q: What is your culinary background? A: I have a bachelors degree in culinary arts from Germany and I have 13 years of fine dining experience in several places in both Europe and the United States. Q: Do you come from a food family? If so, which relative or relatives fostered or inspired an interest in you? A: I come from a food-loving family, though not a family of chefs or restaurateurs. We ate lots of fresh, seasonal vegetables and traditional European cuisine. Once a week in Germany, my father would prepare a traditional African dish such as Jollof rice, which is very popular in many West African countries and is an ancestor of jambalaya. Q: Youve cited Africa, Europe and the United States as influential culinary cultures in your work. How do you combine them and do you have any particular flavors you find yourself coming back to? A: Palm oil is a flavor from my childhood I constantly coming back to. The buttery, fruity flavor profile works very well in tomato dishes and with seafood and sauted green vegetables. You can find it at Whole Foods here in town. Q: Do you have plans for a restaurant? A: My future plan for a restaurant includes utilizing indigenous ingredients that have been culturally forgotten. This would be offered as a tasting menu with the option of a regular a la carte menu celebrating local ingredients. Q: You were instrumental in opening Gordon Ramseys London Hotel in Los Angeles. Can you tell us about your role and what the experience was like for you? A: My role at the London Hotel was to ensure that the day-to day lunch, dinner and room service operations were molded and perfectly aligned with Executive Chef Andy Cooks vision. Working at the hotel helped me master multi-tasking, managing a large staff, ordering and training younger peers. Q: Youve worked at some highly rated restaurants, including the threestar Michelin-rated Alinea in Chicago. How does that influence your expectations of your own work, particularly as they affect your catering business? A: I have learned through experiences such as Alinea what to do and what not to do regarding service and the overall execution of dishes. Not everybody has the acquired taste for Michelin-star food, but everybody has the ability to enjoy a variety of wellexecuted comfort dishes. I enjoy providing my clients with a unique dining experience and working to the best of my ability to make food that will be hard for them to forget. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: I have always been fascinated by local fresh ingredients, textures and flavors. As a child in Ghana, I remember spending a good amount of time in the garden learning about a variety of fruits and vegetables and wondering how they could be used in a meal to make people happy. It is a never-ending journey of learning and execution that still inspires me to this day. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: Curiosity and the seafood. I was also fascinated by the landscape and the gulf coast weather, which reminds me a little bit of Africa. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: A recent dish that I am particularly proud of is my short rib pappardelle pasta, which garnered a wonderful reaction here in Naples. It captures the essence of a home-cooked pot roast flavor with the short rib, and I add pickled red onions and a few other key ingredients to bring out that down-home, mamas-style comfort taste with a few twists. It is a must try. Q: What do you find challenging? A: I suppose balancing my family and personal life overseas with my professional life here in Southwest Florida. It can be challenging, but thats simply the sacrifice I make to do what I love. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: My greatest culinary influence was my caretaker family in Germany, who were vegetarians. They opened my eyes up to the different textures and flavors of seasonal vegetables and vegetarian cuisine. This opened up my mind to creating a variety of dishes at a young age. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: I loved working for SBE at the Hyde Lounge in Los Angeles, where I cooked for numerous celebrities and political figures during my time. I had the pleasure of serving President Obama when he was still a senator, Donald Trump, Ashton Kutcher and many others. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: My favorite culinary resources include networking with old colleagues overseas and stateside. I have worked with a lot of local purveyors such as Calusa Farms and Blue Star Seafood, which gives me insight about seasonal, high-quality products I can use in my dishes. IVAN SELIGMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYNot everybody has the acquired taste for Michelin-star food, but everybody has the ability to enjoy a variety of well-executed comfort dishes. Chef Andy Hyde

Kalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, recently celebrated the topping off of its first residential high-rise tower. The communitys construction professionals, working simultaneously on both the tower and the clubhouse, were in attendance, as were officials from Manhattan, the general contractor and host of the event. Since June of 2015, Ive been afforded a front-row seat of the construction progress from my office, said Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. This milestone is not only exciting for us, but also for those people whove already purchased at Kalea Bay, as well as the visitors who have visited the sales center for the first time. According to Wilson, the first residential tower is slated to be completed by fall of next year. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence 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, all of which are standard features. Our kitchens have 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. A perfect vantage point 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. Dramatic views are available to every single resident, no matter which floor they live on. The towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. Including our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. The beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is slated for completion around the same timeframe as the first tower. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, plus pickleball 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 our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

her sophomore year that she learned she could make a living doing what she loved. As a professional, her artistic abilities and strong work ethic in the luxury residential industry lead to wide recognition for her. I, on the other hand, was raised in rural Indiana and attended Purdue University. Under the guidance of my builder/developer father, I was intrigued by the idea of a career in the design field. Through his actions in life and in business, he taught me the importance of being approachable and the importance of strong communication skills. Natalie and my paths crossed more than 18 years ago while working at the awardwinning Romanza Interior Design Firm in Naples. My strength there was operations and business development, and Natalies, of course, was design. Our aha moment came one day while talking and drinking too much coffee. It quickly became clear our individual experiences and talents, coupled with our shared vision, was the perfect recipe for a successful firm. Like our talents, we combined our names Sorrentino and Cotton for Soco Interiors. It was the start of something special. Q: What is the secret to your successful partnership? How do you navigate the volume and responsibility so seamlessly? A: Balance, honesty and respect for each other and our team is at the core of our partnership. Were a great team. Over the years we have learned that attracting, developing and empowering creative individuals with the same goals is the key to seamless projects and to Soco as a whole. Everyone on our 22-person team has a high desire, embraces change and is always learning from the others. And at the end of the day, it is important to both Natalie and me that our employees are happy and enjoy their jobs. We dont expect every day to be a party, but the mood in our office is usually fun, mainly because we all love what we do. Q: Explain the process of working through a project with a new custom client. How do you navigate large projects with your own particular process? A: Our clients are individuals first, and our approach to every new project is unique. However, the first step is always the same: to listen. We listen to our clients vision and their story. From there, our creativity and building begins, with clear communication every step of the way. In each project the client is part of the process, which not only results in original, beautiful homes but also in lasting client relationships. Organization is so important for large projects. Natalie and I pride ourselves on accountable collaboration between builder, architect and interior designer. We depend on our stellar reputation throughout the industry. This is what creates the best product: a home that our client loves. Q: What do you feel are the most important responsibilities an interior designer has to his/her clients? A: Its simple: Do what we agree to do when taking on the project. This includes coming up with great design based on the clients dream and delivering it on time and within budget.

6 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comWhen the new owners of this 1950s ranch home in Coquina Sands decided to create a contemporary, beachy, vacation home with a slight Asian flair, they were referred to TEC Construction. Dawn Burke, founder, interior designer and licensed building contractor, walked the home with the owners and realized a complete structural redesign was needed. According to the clients directive, the two-bedroom, three-bath home they wanted couldnt be achieved without raising the ceiling or adding to the original footprint of the home. After many hours of consultation regarding the clients wants, needs and lifestyle, Ms. Burke knew she had her work cut out for her. She also knew she was more than up to the task at hand. The desired open concept was created with the removal of walls, windows and doors. Placing two sets of French doors in an otherwise plain living room wall totally changed the look of that area and provided the visual impact the client was looking for. By moving the front entry over a foot or so and changing the configuration of the pantry and garage hallway, Ms. Burke was able to open the entry with glass doors to make a more welcoming space. A new powder bath with a floating quartz countertop and a shell mosaic tile has pocket doors with frosted glass that ensure privacy without closing off the space completely. French doors also replaced the sliders in the master bedroom. By moving a wall just a few inches, Ms. Burke was able to add an expansive walk-in closet. The master bathroom received a total makeover with an oversized double vanity, wall-hung Italian cabinetry, clean sleek tile and a sizable enclosed glass shower with pebble floor. The whole plan provides this space with an open airy feel. MAKEOVERModern LoveA midcentury ranch gets a bright and airy redux COURTESY PHOTOSSEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 8 BeforeDawn Burke Above: By removing the left side wall of the kitchen and the rear wall adjacent to the enclosed porch, this space became a contemporary haven of comfort and charm, including a dining room that previously was nonexistent.

8 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY With two teenage girls in the home, the guest bath sorely needed to be updated. A second sink was added for convenience, as well as a window in the shower for natural light. TEC used a circle insert in the shower to add a touch of whimsy for the girls. The homeowner wanted the living, kitchen and dining areas to be an open plan, but at the same time wanted a distinctive style for each. To that end, Ms. Burke decided to remove the wall between the kitchen and the living room and create a work area with a chef sink and an oversized countertop for seating and entertaining. Thin glass pendant lights offer a casually defined space with an unobstructed view. The use of just two colors in the Italian kitchen cabinetry combined with quartz countertops, chrome faucets and oversized porcelain tile lends visual interest to a very workable kitchen. What was previously a long, dark, enclosed porch was opened up by removing a kitchen wall and replacing the exterior French doors with fully pocketing sliders. The space became an inviting sunroom with a small seating area overlooking the pool and an airy dining room adjacent to the main living room. The color palette incorporates beiges, taupes and white, with the only pops of color being in the carefully chosen artwork and the lush greenery of the landscaping more visible through the sliders. In order to enjoy the Florida lifestyle, the owners wanted to feel that the outside lanai was part of the inside of the home. This openness actually gives the impression the house is double its actual size. What was once a very dark, tiny, dated home became a comfortable, contemporary beach retreat for this fortunate family.

COVER STORY BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comWhat do you do when you love your Naples neighborhood, canal location and water views, but need a new house? If you are a couple with vision, you tear down the first home and build a new one in exactly the same spot. When this spirited couple retired in 2013, they felt the time was right to reevaluate their familys needs. They all agreed that they wanted to spend more time in Naples, and it became clear that the best option was to design and build a larger home that would meet the future needs of their growing family. In early 2014, the lady of the home, who notably is not a professional designer, sat down in front of her computer with some recently acquired design software and began capturing a vision. She worked on the layout and size of the rooms, and came up with a basic twostory floor plan. Having lived on the site for a decade, she knew to take into account the beautiful water views and the suns movement throughout the day. I have to say that I knew what we were embarking on because in 2008 we built our New York home in the same manner, she says. As we traveled through Naples over the years, we saw many architectural design trends, but we were always drawn to the timeless, laid-back, Old Florida style. They knew that the first step was to find the perfect builder for their specific needs, and from the first meeting with Top: Relaxation abounds in this great room with an 11-foot Allison Palladino design custom sofa and an elegant pairing of cocktail and console tables by Tritter Feefer. Above: The foyer adds a welcoming blue door that says hello and an original Richardson painting atop a custom bench in vibrant blue-toned textiles.

Vincent Borelli, Mark Borelli and Parker Borelli of Borelli Construction, they felt comfortable they had an incredible team guiding them through the process. During construction of the home, the owners would fly into Naples monthly to check on the progress and make selections that would be needed in the coming months. We would always keep the selections about two months ahead of when items would be needed, thus we were never waiting for items to arrive, and the construction schedule could progress in an orderly manner, says Mark Borelli, principal of the company. Of course no one can anticipate all items that will be needed ahead of time, he adds, but we did our best to predict. The homeowners, he says, were dream clients. They took an interest in the tradespeople who worked in their home and appreciated the work that they did, Mr. Borelli says. Building a custom home from the ground up can sometimes be an emotional and stressful process, but not for these wonderful people. They were always organized and extremely professional. While the look of the home has an Old Florida feel, the materials and components used in the construction are the most modern and hurricane-code compliant, a distinct advantage for a new build. The standing seam metal roof actually exceeds local codes and complies with the strictest Florida code, that of Miami-Dade Certified. An emergency generator can run the entire house in the event of a power failure. There is a computerized lighting system, automatic roll-down window shades and a whole-house sound system complete with two surround sound areas. Energy savings was also very important to the homeowners, so all interior and exterior landscape lighting is LEED certified to run for pennies a day without generating any heat. After introductions by the Borellis, the homeowners chose John Cooney, principal at Stofft Cooney Architects, to realize their vision and transform their rudimentary drawings into actual architectural plans. They worked extensively with Mr. Cooney and his associate, Maya Keller, to finetune their plans. John and Maya were always so helpful, professional and knowledgeable, the lady of the home says. They were such a pleasure to work with. With the house nearing completion, they added Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design to their team to collaborate on the design of the exterior spaces, including all the plantings, the driveway, rear patio and pool. Alex Garland of Garland & Garland Inc. replaced the seawall and built a gorgeous new dock. Once again, the family convened and discussed their vision. My son got involved designing the interior of the pool steps and benches, the homeowner says. I also tasked him with developing a dolphin design that was used to create an inlay in the pool pavers. From the beginning of the project, the homeowners had their own ideas for the interiors of the home, but they enlisted Jill Kersey of Bay Design Store to bring it all to life. Ms. Kersey recounts that initially the couple brought in all the material selections they had made thus far, and those became a foundation for the furnishings. Inspiration for the interior color scheme actually all started with a kitchen backsplash material chosen at Ruben Sorhegui Tile. Working with principal Tony Sorhegui, the couple chosea vibrant trifecta of blue variations that set the stage for the palette used throughout the home. The location of the home is so beautiful; the wide water views were something that the family loves about this spot, and I think my inspiration was really the feel of being on the Gulf, Ms. Kersey says. The serenity of the water and the sophistication of Naples all mixed together so organically. The home is filled with color, yet its soft and sophisticated, but still beachy and clean-lined. Its a real mix, and it came together so naturally. As a designer, Ms. Kersey loves accessorizing and says these clients responded particularly well to her passion. For example, she says, a focal area rug was a fun project. The couples son is a very talented artist, and they wanted to work with him on doing a custom rug. They did the sketch and sent it to me, and I tweaked it slightly before we sent it on to be constructed. Its sort of abstract, but has this cute little starfish in just the right spot. There are little special things like that all through the home. This is the home that collaboration built.

BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comAlmost 20 years ago, Edgar and Tiffany West began a journey that eventually led to West Indies Home Collection, their 15,000-square-foot retail showroom on Tamiami Trail North. Creatively inspired by their extensive travels overseas, the couple started designing classic British and Dutch Colonial teak furniture and having their bespoke pieces handmade in Indonesia. The very first store was in a rustic warehouse across from Naples Municipal Airport. Now that enterprise has expanded to include a personally curated selection of fine furniture, innovative lighting, original art, hand-loomed area rugs and unique home accessories from all over the world. Sourced either in this country or abroad, many of the items in the showroom are one of a kind. In order to join the collection, each item must demonstrate the highest level of craftsmanship, design innovation and aesthetic excellence, whether its a suite of weather-worthy outdoor furniture, a fine ceramic piece or a modern framed original painting. The international staff at West Indies Home Collection includes designers, artists and craftsmen who share a mission to help the customer discover a unique design component for their home. In addition to private individuals, hundreds of interior designers, builders and developers have worked with the Wests to realize their clients projects. The light-filled showroom across from the Mercato houses an unforgettable shopping experience with multiple room vignettes, an eclectic mix of natural materials such as driftwood and shells, vintage Asian finds and glittering contemporary chandeliers. A stunning selection of accent pillows in Thai silk, linen and velvet is displayed beneath large-format original artwork and incredibly realistic faux flower arrangements, creating the illusion of a tropical paradise. The name may be West Indies Home Collection, but the experience is so much more than an island getaway. Its a global shopping experience like none other in Naples, Mrs. West says. It is our passion to find and design unique items, so it gives us great joy to see our customers thrilled to find their perfect accessory or piece of furniture.

Our focus is to make this process painless for our remodeling clients.Can I meet with one of your designers for a free estimate and to discuss my remodeling project?One of our designers would be happy to meet with you to discuss your project. During that meeting our designer will share preliminary ideas for your remodel and give you an estimate of the budget range you are in.How do you begin planning the remodel?To ensure the best remodel with the fewest issues we begin with a design phase. By investing the time to consider all of the details, including the impact on your projects budget, it greatly reduces the likelihood of costly surprises. We always start with our design phase to ensure that we create the best overall plan that works for our clients.What goes into the design phase?We start by asking you questions about how you and your family use your kitchen, bathroom or other living space you want to remodel. We need to know what is important to you. If you have a wish list, please share that. For example, if you have gathered photos of kitchens or a master bedroom suite you admire, we would like to see them. We want to see your home and your project through your eyes so that we can add our expertise to the mix and develop the best design for you.What is the Florida Regulations of Contractors and why is it important to hire a licensed contractor?The State of Florida construction licensing regulatory agency is Per Florida State Statute, all contractors must be licensed to perform any type of construction work A business license is not the same as a contracting license. By not hiring a licensed contractor, you run the risk of being scammed and not having recourse should there be a problem with your project. Cornerstone Builders of Southwest Florida is appropriately licensed and carries the required insurance workers compensation and bonds.Can you provide references?Upon request we will provide contact information for clients who have had similar projects completed.Do I need to board my pets while my home is being remodeled?It depends on whether your pets can handle the disruption of their favorite napping spots and on the size and length of your project. We have found that most of our clients do not need to board their pets.How much will my home life be disrupted during the process?Most of our clients remain in their homes during the process. We do all we can to minimize disrupting your life as much as possible.How early in the morning does the crew work?We can accommodate most schedules. We typically start the day between 7:00 am and 8:00 am but if that time frame does not work for you we can create a customized schedule.Does someone need to be home at all times during construction?No. Being present during the remodel is not necessary. We remodel homes for people whose primary residences are out of state. We can keep you apprised of the progress of your project via videos and photos. Interested in scheduling a free in-home consultation?Just let us know, and we will schedule a consultation with one of our design specialists.
