COMMENTARYCome Nov. 9: Seven things to knowLet me run through the main points you should consider if you intend to carry on in relative peace-of-mind or piece-of-mind, either one, come Nov. 9. FIRST: The sun will rise at 6:35 a.m. in Miami but not in New York City. There, it will rise at 6:36 a.m., one minute later. The Yankees can sleep in. In Columbus, Texas, meanwhile, the sun will rise at 6:46; in Columbus, Mo.; at 6:52, and in Columbus, Ohio at 7:11 a.m. But in Columbus, Ga.? No, maam. Even though Columbus, Ga., is 789.9 miles east of Columbus, Texas on Interstate 10, the sun intends to rise much later than it does in its namesake Texas town 19 minutes later to be precise, at 7:05 a.m. along Broadway or First Avenue, downtown. At nearby Fort Benning, of course, home of the Armys Infantry and Armor schools, Ranger School, Airborne School, How-To-Be-A-Real-Nice-Guyor-Gal School and that kind of thing, the sun always rises at 4 a.m. How can any of this be? How can the sun actually rise 19 minutes later almost 800 miles due east of Columbus, Texas? Thats easy: Politics. The sun is going to be as confused and either as dismayed or as overjoyed as you and I will be on Nov. 9. Why should it rise any time other than it damn well pleases? So thats the first thing to know: If the sun can do it, so can you. Just sleep in that day. Or go take a walk, or drink before noon, or run 12 miles, six for the Hillary and six for the Donald. Just break out and relax, maybe listen to that old Jason Isbell song, Goddamn Lonely Love. That is, if your candidate lost. If your candidate won, I recommend singing the entire Hallelujah chorus from Handels Messiah, by yourself, from the street outside your home, at sunrise. You have my permission. Feel free to copy and paste this note below, or print or clip a hard copy and show it to the boss. DEAR BOSS: HE/SHE HAS MY PERMISSION TO BEHAVE WITH THE REGULARITY OF THE SUN, ON NOV. 9 ONLY. DRIVE FAST AND TAKE CHANCES, BOSSY, OK? ESPECIALLY TODAY. YOUR FRIEND IN CRIME AND PROFIT, HORATIO. Or whomever sign it Roger if you have to, followed by Over and Out. Thats how you have to talk to bosses if you dont have a good one. I happen to have a good one, so I never talk to my boss that way, but Im pretty sure Im in the solid minority. Which many of you will discover you are too, come Nov. 9. Dont worry about it it just happens sometimes. SECOND: The first rugged, fourwheel ATV was not built at the end of the 1960s, as the history of internal combustion would suggest. No, sir. Instead, it was manufactured rapidly by geniuses over a 115-day period between May 25 and Sept. 17, 1787. They didnt call it names like Arctic Cat, Bobcat, Unison, Cobra, Cub Cadet, Holy Cow, J.F. Tap-dancing Christ, or anything else too fanciful. Instead, they just called it The United States Constitution. Sort of a long name with Latinate origins Con-Stitution springs from a Latin phrase that means Eat More Chocolate or Quit Whining or Git Along Liddle Doggie or something like that. As the best ATV ever made, the Constitution can go anywhere and do anything, under any conditions. Its one rugged vehicle. Not the fastest or most agile, not the clearest and specific in its design, and definitely not the most unequivocal. But its the most enduring, the most flexible, the most powerful and the most forgiving. Heres what all that means: It means youre going to be OK. Heres why. THIRD: Nobody about to inhabit the White House is going to take away your guns or your right to speak. FOURTH: Nobody about to inhabit the White House is going to act like a Nazi. You will not be beaten up if you protest, you will not be told to get out of the country the next day even if youre an alien, and you will not be prevented from expressing your opinions. FIFTH: Nobody will break into your house without a search warrant and nobody will get permission to start monitoring your communications. Not without a search warrant. You know why? Because the Constitution, that most magnificent of All Terrain Vehicles, will not tolerate that. SIXTH: No president can do anything of significance (except order a nuclear strike in four minutes flat) certainly he or she cannot intrude upon your constitutional rights without the permission of Congress and the Supreme Court. Congress and the Supreme Court will check and balance each other, too. So come Nov. 9, were all going to be OK. But the biggest reason for sleeping in that day is this, no question: SEVENTH: We (third person, plural) are Americans. And if we are not much different than any other human beings of the last few thousand years individually, together we form the most powerful single All Terrain Vehicle for the Good (ATVG) ever created or even conceived. No matter what else happens, if you remember nothing else on Nov. 9, remember that. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

We arrived outside the Morton County Courthouse in Mandan to produce a live broadcast of the Democracy Now! news hour. Originally, the location was dictated by the schedule imposed upon us by the local authorities; one of us (Amy) had been charged with criminal trespass for our reporting on the Dakota Access Pipeline companys violent attack on Native Americans who were attempting to block the destruction of sacred sites, including ancestral burial grounds, just north of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Pipeline guards unleashed pepper spray and dogs on the land and water defenders. Democracy Now! video showed one of the attack dogs with blood dripping from its nose and mouth. The video went viral, attracting more than 14 million views on Facebook alone. Five days later, North Dakota issued the arrest warrant. When responding to an arrest warrant, one must surrender to the jail by about 8 a.m. if one hopes to see a judge that day and avoid a night in jail. So we planned to broadcast live from 7-8 a.m., then head to the jail promptly at 8 a.m. to get processed through the jail and fight the trespass charge in court. To our surprise, as we landed in Bismarck on Friday, we learned that the prosecutor, Ladd Erickson, had dropped the trespass charge, but filed a new one: riot. We were stunned. In an email to both the prosecutor and our defense attorney, Tom Dickson, Judge John Grinsteiner wrote, The new complaints, affidavits, and summons are quite lengthy and I will review those for probable cause on Monday when I get back into the office. We were told by several lawyers familiar with North Dakota criminal law that judges almost never reject a prosecutors complaint. The arraignment was set for 1:30 p.m. local time, Monday. We spent the weekend reporting on the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, with the threat of the riot charge never far from our minds. The 1,100-mile-long, $3.8 billion pipeline is designed to carry almost 500,000 barrels of crude oil from the fracking oil fields of North Dakota to Illinois, then onward to the Gulf of Mexico. That is why thousands of people have been at the resistance camps where the Dakota Access Pipeline is slated to cross under the Missouri River. If the pipeline leaks there, the freshwater supply for millions of people downstream will be polluted. Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier runs the jail in Mandan and is responsible for how people are processed there. As the protests have mounted during the past six months, Kirchmeier and the local prosecutors have been leveling more and more serious charges against the land and water protectors, with an increasing number of felony charges. More than 140 people have been arrested so far. Those we spoke to told us a shocking detail: When getting booked at the jail, they were all strip searched, forced to squat and cough to demonstrate they had nothing hidden in their rectums, then were put in orange jumpsuits. The treatment was the same for Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Dave Archambault, to a pediatrician from the reservation, Dr. Sara Jumping Eagle, to actress Shailene Woodley, star of the films Divergent and Snowden, among others. I asked Chairman Archambault if strip searching was common for lowlevel misdemeanors. I wouldnt know, because that was the first time I ever got arrested, he replied. Dr. Jumping Eagle remarked, It made me think about my ancestors, and what they had gone through. Shailene Woodley told us, Never did it cross my mind that while trying to protect clean water, trying to ensure a future where our children have access to an element essential for human survival, would I be strip searched. I was just shocked. As we prepared to enter the courthouse for the 1:30 p.m. arraignment on Monday, Oct. 17, 200 people rallied in support of a free press, demanding the charges be dropped. A row of close to 60 riot police were lined up in a needless display of force in front of a peaceful gathering, threatening to arrest anyone who stepped off the curb. Then word came from our lawyer: The judge had refused to sign off on the riot charge. The case was dismissed, and we marked an important victory for a free press. The free press should now focus a fierce spotlight on the standoff at Standing Rock a critical front in the global struggle to combat global warming and fight for climate justice. Indigenous people and their non-native allies are confronting corporate power, backed up by the state with an increasingly militarized police force. Attempts to criminalize nonviolent land and water defenders, humiliate them and arrest journalists should not pave the way for this pipeline. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,400 stations. She is the co-author, with Denis Moynihan and David Goodman, of Democracy Now!: 20 Years Covering the Movements Changing America. Denis Moynihan co-wrote this column.Clintons insincere, arrogant campaignThe website PolitiFact jumped all over Rudy Giuliani earlier this year when he said, Hillary Clinton is for open borders. It spent about 700 words sifting through the e vidence, and ended up rating the former New York City mayors claim false. Now we know that PolitiFact blew its call because it lacked access to the most important datum Hillary Clintons real view. For that, it would have had to be present at one of her paid speeches at a major financial institution, in this case the Brazilian bank Banco Itau. In May 2013, Clinton told her audience at the bank, My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders. Ding, ding, ding theres the magic phrase, in Hillarys own words. The excerpt from Hillarys speech comes courtesy of the massive WikiLeaks dump of pilfered emails probably by Russian hackers from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The hack is illuminating insofar as it illustrates how progressives think and talk in private i.e., about how youd expect. The frank advocacy of open borders is now so radioactive that even the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal will no longer associate itself with it (once upon a time, the paper routinely called for an open-borders amendment to the U.S. Constitution). Talk of open borders has consequentially retreated behind closed doors. A faux cosmopolitanism is a thread running through the WikiLeaks emails. If you think Clinton aides root for terrorist acts not to be committed by Muslims, lest political and policy complications ensue, youre right. Hillary aide Karen Finney sent John Podesta an email in December 2015 about the San Bernardino shooting. She wrote damn, and forwarded a tweet from MSNBC journalist Chris Hayes relating that one of the shooters was named Syed Farook. Podesta lamented that it wasnt instead a journalist named Syed Farook reporting on a shooting by Chris Hayes, who has a much more convenient, Irish surname. A certain highhandedness and bad faith pervades the entire Clinton campaign. Hillary Clinton was perfectly comfortable with the globe-trotting financiers throwing six-figure speaking fees at her, but then had to turn around and shovel boob bait for Bubba at her partys inflamed left-wing activists, who hate those very financiers and their views on trade, among many other things. The Clinton campaigns predicament was captured in microcosm by spokesman Brian Fallon. In September 2015, he worried about an op-ed attacking the Keystone Pipeline that, he notes, had already been extensively edited and re-edited. As secretary of state, Clinton had, reasonably enough, indicated shed likely support the pipeline, and now she was coming out against it. Will her newly aggressive opposition, Fallon wondered, be greeted cynically and perhaps as part of some manufactured attempt to project sincerity? Yeah, probably like much of what she says and does. Such was Clintons manifest weakness in March 2016 that a friendly liberal columnist sent a worried email to John Podesta. Right now, the columnist warned, I am petrified that Hillary is almost totally dependent on Republicans nominating Trump. Sounds right. It always pays to be lucky, rather than good or sincere.

straits here where political and economic interests often seem to clash with the science that points to an expensive but effective water fix for the vast Everglades ecosystem he might feel right at home. (For an in-depth look at Floridas water problems and the solutions, see The Fix, Florida Weekly, Sept. 28.) Mr. Edwards is a professor of civil engineering at Virginia Tech, where he teaches environmental engineering, applied aquatic chemistry and engineering ethics. But as reputations go, thats the least of it. Doing lab work on corrosion in buildings and opportunistic premise-plumbing pathogens, hes become one of the most celebrated and coincidentally reviled academic activists in American science. I dont feel Ive had a choice, he says. He helped prove, for example, that people were being forced to drink leadinfused water from utility pipes in Washington, D.C., at the beginning of the last decade; he was one of Time magazines four most important innovators in international water issues and dubbed The Plumbing Professor in 2004; a paper on lead poisoning of children in Washington was named outstanding science paper by Environmental Science and Technology, a prestigious trade journal, in 2010; in 2013 he received a premier award for courageously defending the public interest at great personal risk; and this year Fortune and Time both named him one of the most influential people in the world, according to his biography. Mr. Edwards was also a 2007 winner of a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant (recipients get $500,000 to do what they want in furthering science or art that might help humanity). So what could be wrong with that picture? A lot, according to his critics, who include both public officials and some academic colleagues. They didnt like it when Mr. Edwards stepped back into the public fray in 2014, forcing federal, state and local officials in Michigan to acknowledge actions that poisoned and perhaps killed people drinking from lead-leeching pipes in Flint. Those officials were also forced to admit they understood the problem long before they acted, an act Mr. Edwards calls criminal, and a conclusion drawn by the inspector general of the Environmental Protection Agency, reported Oct. 14 by The New York Times.The EPA could have ordered state and local officials to quit supplying water passing from the Flint River through improperly treated pipes as early as June 2015, but instead waited until January of this year, the inspector general concluded. The result in Michigan has been both dismay and huge and ongoing change; for Mr. Edwards, the consequences have been unexpected and disturbing. Maybe my academic career is over, he says in spite of his fame and his tenure as a professor at Virginia Tech. For me to have to defend myself for exposing an environmental crime I am dumbfounded. Married and with two children, he admits he has paid a costly personal price for being a do-good activist. Thats a truth anybody who attends the play Paragon Springs at FSW is likely to discover during the talk-back after the 8 p.m. openingnight performance Thursday, Nov. 3, in the Black Box Theater on the colleges Fort Myers campus. Based on the Henrik Ibsen play, An Enemy of the People, this 2010 work by Stephen Dietz to be produced and directed by FSW theater professor Stuart Brown describes what happens to a man who discovers the highly profitable tourist waters of a town are toxic and makes the information public. Mr. Brown was born and raised near the Caloosahatchee River, has watched politics ignore science as the quality of the river declined with excessive water releases from Lake Okeechobee, he says, and decided to bring both the play and Mr. Edwards to the region. A discussion about what happens to scientists when their work gets challenged in the political arena is overdue, he explains. The first wave of climate scientists was all but obliterated by personal attacks and political pressure and other dirty tricks., he adds. Science and politics have antithetical processes and yet, in todays world, they seem ever more violently thrust into the same space. Should we be doing anything to equip our science majors to confront the bewildering political challenges they may well face in the normal course of their careers? Thats the troubling but insistent question that art a painting, a play, a book, a photograph can raise even if others dont, when politics and science clash, says Mr. Brown. Mr. Edwards, an incarnate answer to the question, perhaps, appears to have stepped straight from the pages and stages of Ibsen and Dietz, and he knows it. In his forward to a David L. Lewis book, Science for Sale, he quotes the Ibsen play: Mayor: The matter in question is not a purely scientific one; it is a complex affair; it has both a technical and an economic side As a subordinate official, you have no right to express any conviction at odds with that of your superiors. Dr. Stockman: What I am doing, I am doing in the name of truth and for the sake of my conscience. After Mr. Edwards had conducted the tests and in 2014 drawn his conclusions in Flint, once again federal, state and local officials, joined by some academic colleagues around the country, criticized him. They questioned his motives, they questioned his reputation, and they insisted first that he was wrong (he wasnt, as subsequent events show) and second that as a scientist and academic, he should have stayed out of the fray and let others solve the problem. Thus, so the argument goes, he might remain objective, and government grants to universities and scientists might not be put at risk. The chill Mr. Edwards feels from both colleagues and officialdom has not lifted, nor has his unequivocal criticism of both civil servant and academic scientists who pass by opportunities to right environmental wrongs, part of the code of engineers and planners all are sworn to, he says a scientists version of the Hippocratic oath taken by doctors. Their view, he argues, is based on a flawed model of proper behavior for good scientists. A pinnacle of scientific evolution upheld to my generation was Mr. Spock on Star Trek half human and without emotion, supposedly full of logic, he explains. This is a very dangerous model. My life experiences have shown me that overemphasizing technical knowledge, even at the expense of being human, is very dangerous. Such danger suggests how important a so-called liberal education looking into the temperaments, behaviors and experiences of others might be, he argues. While I would not force a liberal education on anyone, we can try to better inspire students to seek one out on their own. I once thought that the humanities were for losers I had to learn the hard way at age 40 (he is now 52) that was not the case. That to protect innocent kids and fulfill my professional obligations as an engineer, I had to learn about both the worst and best of humankind. When colleagues criticized him in the journal Environmental Science and Tech-SCIENTISTSFrom page 1I think this is about the relationship between science and society, and the trustworthiness of our civil service. The environmental police we pay to protect us what do we do when they turn into environmental criminals? There is no plan for environmental justice when environmental crimes are perpetrated by civil servants and engineers. Marc Edwards professor of civil engineering Virginia TechFlorida Weeklys Sept. 28 issue featured an in-depth look at Floridas water problems and their possible solutions.

One element of CERP is the addition of the C-43 West Basin Storage Reservoir which has a capacity of 170,000 acre-feet. Located south of the river and west of the Ortona Locks, it would store water to reduce damaging lake discharges in the wet season and enhance ows in the dry season.Fort Myers Clewiston Belle GladeWC A 1WCA 2 WCA 3 Shark River Slough C-43 Reservoir C-44 ResevoirBiscayne Bay Everglades National Park Big Cypress National Preserve Lake Okeechobee Florida Bay West Palm Beach Fort Lauderdale Naples Miami OrlandoSt. Lucie River and estuaryFor thousands of years the north and south forks of the St. Lucie River rose or fell with seasonal rains, nourishing the wetlands and bearing no direct connection with either Lake Okeechobee in the west, or the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean in the east. But late in the 19th century settlers began scraping out channels for navigation, ood control and water supply purposes, ultimately connecting the lake and the Atlantic along a 37-mile canal and profoundly altering the hydrology of the region. Proposed private land purchasesSenator Joe Negrons $2.4 billion proposal targets two agricultural parcels amounting to about 60,000 acres south and southwest of Lake Okeechobee for storing 120 billion gallons of water that would lessen discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries and help restore water ows south to nourish the Everglades National Park. Water Conservation Areas (WCAs)South Floridas three WCAs are vast tracts of remnant Everglades sawgrass that together span 846,387 acres. They serve multiple purposes, including ood control, water supply and habitat for plants and animals. In f l o wOutflowPhosphorous uptake by oating plants Algae and periphyton phosphorus uptake Stormwater containing phosphorus enters the STA. Water with less phosphorus exits the STA. Uptake by emergent plants like cat tails and sawgrass Phosphorus uptake by submerged aquatic vegetationStormwater Treatment Areas: Green technology fitration-systemSTAs are constructed wetlands that remove and store nutrients and phosphorous through plant growth and the accumulation of dead plant material in a layer of sediment. Water then ows into the traditionally nutrient-poor Everglades system that suits and supports its needs. Restoring the natural flow to the Everglades ridge and slough landscape The predominant character of the traditional Everglades river of grass was a peat-based ridge and slough landscape. Its features stretched south into the Shark River Slough from what are now the public-lands Water Conservation Areas (WCAs) known simply as 1, 2 and 3. The traditional landscape is severely degrading, becoming uniform and less directional. Scientists say it can be saved only by re-establishing appropriate water ow and direction. They note that the engineering and technology exists, waiting only to be joined by the political will.Central Everglades Planning ProjectCEPP is the next increment of CERP. It focuses on restoring a more natural ow into and through the central and southern Everglades by Increasing storage, removing canals and levees and retaining water within Everglades National Park both to prevent ooding in Broward or Miami-Dade Counties, and to help re-charge the Biscayne Aquifer. That shallow aquifer provides the only source of drinking water for several million residents and visitors on the southeast coast.RidgeThe generally submerged ridges that separate sloughs are dominated by sawgrass.SloughThe open water sloughs are characterized by submerged and oating vegetation, including periphyton mats. Flow dire ct ionSouth Florida Water Management District border (includes 16 counties, the largest of ve Florida water management districts) Kissimmee River and BasinOnce meandering for 103 miles through central Florida, the Kissimmee has undergone major changes. The C-38 canal was created to channel ow south to Lake Okeechobee. Since the Kissimmee River Restoration Project began in 1999, continuous water ow has been re-established to 24 miles of the river and by 2019 will return ow to 43 miles, restoring about 40 square miles of river/ oodplain ecosystem.Water storage: North vs. SouthSigni cantly greater water storage north, south, east and west of Lake Okeechobee is deemed crucial to Everglades restoration, to drinking water supplies for millions who rely on the Biscayne Aquifer or the lake, and to the healthy control of freshwater releases down the estuaries, according to a 2015 study by the University of Floridas Water Institute. But where and when to store the water, and with whose money, has now become a matter of heated debate and parochial interests. Some advocacy groups and political leaders insist water storage begin as soon as possible south of the lake in farm country. Some farm owners, agricultural businesses and other political leaders insist water storage begin immediately north of lake. Lake OkeechobeeThe 730-square-mile lake is the second largest lake in the lower 48 states. In 1926 and 1928 thousands were killed in oods when hurricanes overwhelmed the lake. The Herbert Hoover Dike was built by 1937 and expanded to its current structure by the 1960s. Its steward, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, marks a safe water level at 15.5 feet. Restoring the EvergladesThe Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, or CERP, is designed to repair damage to the natural ow of water from Orlando south to Florida Bay, saving the Everglades. The project is scheduled to be completed after 2030. On September 15 the U.S. Senate passed a $10 billion water bill that included $1.9 billion for Everglades restoration. The money, if rati ed by the House and signed by the President, would help start one of several CERP plans the Central Everglades Planning Project, or CEPP. Everglades Agricultural Area The Central and Southern Florida Project for Flood Control and Other Purposes (C&SF Project) of 1948 designed a 700,000 acre area of the northern Everglades, mostly south of Lake Okeechobee, to be managed for agriculture. Now the major crop of the EAA is sugar cane, grown across some 440,000 acres but winter vegetables are also grown here.

Shortly after that he fired more than 200 regulators and officials in the states Department of Environmental Protection, and the South Florida Water Management District (among others) backed off regulations designed to protect water. The governor Scott forbade state employees even to use the term climate change in describing what might happen in coastal Florida in the next few decades.

nology, he responded with comments that implied a massive hypocrisy on their parts. They teach our students that they must risk their untenured professional careers and risk their livelihood to push back when faced with injustice, while at the same time arguing that this obligation does not apply to tenured academics because our funding is too precious to lose. He then draws this conclusion and repeats it often when he speaks to reporters: This is the very definition of cowardice. We are, he says, the greatest generation of cowards, often too comfortable in our secure lives to do the right thing. I think this is about the relationship between science and society, and the trustworthiness of our civil service. The environmental police we pay to protect us what do we do when they turn into environmental criminals? There is no plan for environmental justice when environmental crimes are perpetrated by civil servants and engineers.The Sunshine StateFor many, perhaps, Mr. Edwards describes conditions in Florida, as well as Washington D.C., or Flint. Here scientists and officials have been fired for questioning or criticizing the states progress in solving a water crisis. Such purges started before Gov. Rick Scotts administration, says Catherine Wilkins, an instructor of humanities at the University of South Floridas Honors College in Tampa who teaches Florida: A Cultural History of Place. Lou Toth, the chief scientist on the restoration of the Kissimmee River, and his organizer Paul Whalen were both fired for making comments about the slow pace of change, she recalls. When Gov. Scott arrived in Tallahassee he fired more than 200 regulators and officials in the states Department of Environmental Protection, and the South Florida Water Management District (among others) backed off regulations designed to protect water quality. The governor forbade state employees even to use the term climate change in describing what will happen in coastal Florida in the next few decades. When state DEP lawyer Chris Byrd became vocal about climate change in 2013, he was fired, Ms. Wilkins says. When University of Florida scientists at the Water Institute produced a lengthy 2014 study pointing the way to restoration of the Everglades system from Orlando south, lobbyists and representatives of conflicting economic interests those ranging from officials for sugar companies or corporate farm operations to environmental groups seized on the report to show either why they should not have to be part of the fix, or why some groups should, says Wendy Graham, director of the UF Water Institute. But she and Thomas Frazer, acting director of the Water Institute this year (Ms. Graham is on sabbatical), stuck to their science guns, no matter which politician or what group might have preferred otherwise. Our report said, This is a big problem with hydrologic, legal, infrastructure complaints, Ms. Graham noted. There is no silver bullet that will solve the problem. Well need (water) storage north, south, east and west of (Lake Okeechobee) and maybe more in the lake to make it work. None of the projects taken one at a time can solve the problem. Individually they dont show benefit across the system. It will take all the projects to achieve restoration goals for the estuaries, the lake and the Everglades. But politicians and lobbyists left the scientists alone, too, says Mr. Frazer. Asked if anyone criticized him or the Water Institute for the findings or tried to sway what the study might report, he replied, Thats an easy one to answer. The answer is No. Such experience in Florida has not been a given. Brian LaPointe, a marine biologist and researcher at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, part of Florida Atlantic University, says for years nobody wanted to hear about his research into the pollution cause by septic tanks both on Floridas west coast in the Caloosahatchee River and Charlotte Harbor, and on the east coast in the Indian River Lagoon. Finally, he says, they began to pay attention when his studies of nitrogen levels resulting from human waste could not be ignored. For Melanie Ulrich, a microbiologist and professor at FSW who with her husband also owns and operates a commercial fishing vessel seeking blue crabs in the Caloosahatchee River, public reaction to her discovery that blues crabs were dying suddenly in huge numbers in the lower reaches of the river earlier this year was surprisingly hostile. As a crabber, she reports size and quantity of catches to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. But as a scientist, she also began to study the locations of the dead crabs, ultimately getting a grant to let her students participate and do the science. Crabs are pretty hardy, but we saw not just a decline in numbers, but death in the crab pots. They crawled in and in several days they were dead. We took pictures because it was kind of disheartening. Theres a major problem (in the lower Caloosahatchee south of I-75). She and her students are now studying the problem in greater depth, but it takes time. You cant assume that the ecosystem will balance it out, and it will be okay. And you cant assume that people will embrace the science and its results. When her observations were reported in the daily newspaper, some people reacted with hostility, inviting the Ulriches to pick up and go back to Maryland where theyd come from in 2012, she recalls. In 2014 there was still profit and reasonable crabbing in this, she says. But then we see a 58 percent reduction in blue crabs. Theres runoff from fertilizers, nitrate imbalances and so on, but from crab perspective, its probably the salinity. The reality of the science is, you want to watch this over multiple years, but you dont want to wait until you say, Weve looked at it for a decade theres a problem. So you have to act. You have to act. Or you can remain a coward, in the view of Mr. Edwards, loyal to your appointments, your grants, your political masters. But there are other ways to be courageous, suggests Ms. Wilkins. I believe Marc Edwards embodies a particular type of heroism that is necessary, but there are ways other people who may not have the sorts of advantages or positions of power that he had when he began this, can act. It takes leaders like Mr. Edwards, but additionally it takes consensus and movement in society, she adds. And people demonstrate courage or become activists in smaller ways: maybe they boycott a product, say sugar, or cast a ballot based on principle, or have an important conversation with a family member, or as a teacher simply pass to students a value that encourages them to question authority. Or they can discover a great play, find the hero who seems to walk out of its pages from the past into the present and future, and present both of them to any who still believe art, politics and science may be one for all and all for one and not a rancorous collection of misfits. >> What: Paragon Springs by Stephen Dietz >> When: Nov. 3-5 and 10-12, 8 p.m. (Saturdays at 2 and 8 p.m.) >> Where: Black Box Theatre, Florida Southwestern State College, Fort Myers >> Special guest: Marc Edwards 3 p.m. Nov. 2 to talk about his experience in exposing lead-toxic tap water in Flint, Mich., and Washington, D.C. 9 p.m Nov. 3 for a talk-back after the 8 p.m. performance of Paragon Springs >> Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com COURTESY PHOTOSCrabs are pretty hardy, but we saw not just a decline in numbers, but death in the crab pots, scientist and crabber Melanie U lrich says.

The killerDown in the Everglades on Oct. 24, 1910, the people of Chokoloskee came for Edgar J. Watson. Outside Ted Smallwoods General Store, after Mr. Watsons gun jammed, they pumped his body so full of bullets that the wall remained permanently stained with his blood. He was buried out on Rabbit Key and although later his family had the body exhumed and buried at Fort Myers Cemetery, some say Mr. Watson or whatever is left of his unfortunate soul has come home to the last place he knew. People eventually came to know him as a cold-blooded killer, a South Carolinaborn outlaw with Jesse James gang who found refuge from the law in this tiny Everglades conclave. He became a sugar cane farmer, and Smallwoods General Store was the center of social activity and trade at the time. He would come in and get people to hire them to work on his sugar cane farm but on payday instead of paying them he just shot them, said Mallory McMillin, Ted Smallwoods great-granddaughter. Many of the workers Mr. Watson killed were black, she said, so their deaths were not officially reported. Then other white locals started turning up dead. Thats when they decided to come for him. Seven years after Mr. Watson was killed, the general store at the farmhouse was closed. A new one was built close by on Chokoloskee Bay and exists to this day as a museum. Ms. McMillin, 28, works there now. Sometimes people in Chokoloskee ring the McMillians doorbell at night to let them know theyve seen people moving about in the store. Ive been here my whole life, Ms. McMillin said. Sometimes when Im closing up and I get all the doors and stuff closed, I dont know, it feels kind of creepy, like theres someone standing behind me sometimes. That may just be, she suggests, because the old building contains a life-size mannequin of her great-grandfather. Maybe Mr. Watsons spirit died along with him in 1910. A ghost-hunting group from Naples, the Haunted Apparition Hunters, came out once to investigate. They posted a fairly freaky video on YouTube about that night. However, nothing was confirmed. I dont know what to think about that kind of stuff, Ms. McMillin said.The bather An old mansion on the river in downtown Fort Myers, The Burroughs Home was a point of high society where snowbirds Nelson and Adeline Burroughs entertained people like the Edison family. Their daughter Mona eventually left the estate to the city, even if a part of her never left at all. It was a Monday in the early 1990s. The house was locked and closed for the day. A maintenance man contacted Gina Taylor, the property director at the time. Had she or someone been in the house? The upstairs bathtub faucet was running. She hadnt. No one had. No one generally did go in the house on Mondays. The spookiest part, Ms. Taylor recalled, is that the motion detectors were on. Ms. Taylor called the plumber. There was no pressure in the line, she was told, that might have caused it to go on. This event continued on a number of other Mondays, with not only the bathtub, but the kitchen and bathroom sink faucets turned on as well. It remains a mystery, but Ms. Taylor speculates that maybe it was Mona, taking her bath in private on the day the home was closed to the public.Haunting tourMs. Taylor is now the owner and operator of True Tours, offering historical walking tours out of The Franklin Shops in downtown Fort Myers. One of their most popular is the Haunted Walking Tour, a 90-minute stroll including some of downtowns spookiest spots, from the Burroughs Home to Patio de Leon. It runs every Wednesday and Saturday and this season the second and fourth Fridays of the month for $14 per person. There are also special tours each evening through Oct. 31. The tours start at 8 p.m. at The Franklin Shops. To book a spot or for more information, call 945-0405 or visit www.truetours.net.Giving up the ghostPam and her daughter Debbie, who died in a fire together many years ago, apparition experts say, were found this summer haunting a warehouse in an industrial park in Naples. One of the spirits (Pam) attached itself to me and came home with me and hung around with me for over a month until we finally had to go and put her back, said George Gibbons, 59. Mr. Gibbons is a sales manager for a beverage distribution company in Naples and lead investigator for the Haunted Apparition Hunters on the weekends. The group visited the warehouse a number of times at the request of the business owner, who preferred to remain anonymous. Information including their names and cause of death was obtained with the help of an Ovilus 5, Mr. Gibbons said, a device designed to communicate with spirits. HAH couldnt confirm exactly when the mother and daughter died, where the fire took place, or their ages. He believes Pam latched on to him because his own emotional troubles at the time related to his marriage left him vulnerable during the investigation. She sometimes appeared as a shadowy figure or large black mass. (She) pretty much made my life a living hell I would say. She was very jealous, a very jealous spirit, very jealous of other women coming and talking to me. Literally she would attack them, he said, by sucking up their energy and making them feel ill. Im a married man and she attacked my wife. I also go to a place here in Naples, its our local spirit shop. One of the gals here who was trying to help me with this, she attacked her like three times. Even when I went to a movie theater she attacked the lady who was selling the tickets. Pams attachment may have been related to her pent-up guilt, Mr. Gibbons said, and that he reminded Pam of her husband, Walter. They knew that they had passed away, they knew that it was a fire, but for some reason or another Pam was on a big guilt trip. She was blaming herself for what happened and blaming herself for her daughters death. One night Mr. Gibbons went back to the warehouse to try to free himself of her presence. He sat in the dark, alone. Basically I had to have a little heart to heart with her, he said. I was able to send her and her daughter on her way, and after that nothing. I was free of her, everything was perfect. I felt like I had the weight of the world taken off my shoulders. HAUNTEDFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe tombstone of Edgar J.

The organization hosts an open house from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Greenmonkey Yoga in North Naples for parents and students seeking more information. The Wellfit Girls program is a fivemonth commitment to meeting twice per week beginning in January. Selected participants are challenged both physically and emotionally by trained Wellfit mentors who help the girls discover their inner leader and boost their self image. The program culminates in late June with a nine-day expedition to Peru, where participants complete a community service project, trek above 15,000 feet and visit the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu. Program director Colby Hazewinkel says the program empowers girls to believe they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. Founded in 2014 by Naples resident Jill Wheeler, the program has seen 30 graduates to date, all of whom can attest that the experience has changed their life. Ms. Wheeler, a mentor and producer of the film Warrior One, attributes her own health and strength to her time spent in the outdoors and lifting others up. Im committed to the idea that challenge in nature and healthy peer groups are the greatest influencers for building self-esteem, she says. In addition to accepting applications, the Wellfit Girls program is also in need of private and corporate sponsors to help keep the program available to all girls, regardless of their financial situation. The cost for the program is $5,000 per girl, with full and partial scholarships available for those who qualify. Applications for the 2017 program year are due by Nov. 18 and can be found online at www.wellfitgirls.org. For information about sponsorship opportunities, email Ms. Hazewinkel at email@example.com.

Some experts estimate that up to half of all vehicles damaged by flooding eventually return to market. Florida ranks No. 3 as having waterlogged vehicles resold, according to a recent Carfax report. After a vehicle has incurred flood damage, the insurance company might declare it a total loss. When that happens, the car should be sent to the junkyard; however, many go to auction as salvage or flood vehicles, after which they too often end up for sale in used car lots, classified ads or online. After a thorough cleaning and replacement of the carpet and floor mats, these cars on the surface can look as good as new. But the hidden problems can include mold and mildew, rusty wiring, computer malfunctions and airbags that dont inflate, among others. The Better Business Bureau offers these tips to help shoppers spot a flooddamaged vehicle: Sniff around. A heavy aroma of cleaners and disinfectants is a sign that someones trying to mask a mold or odor problem. Take a close look. Check for water stains, mildew and sand or silt under the carpet, floor mats, dashboard and in the wheel well where the spare is stored. Check dashboard gauges to make sure they are accurate, and look for signs of water. Test the lights, windshield wipers, turn signals, sound system and air conditioner several times to make sure they work. Flex some wires under the dash to see if they bend or crack, since wet wires become brittle upon drying and can crack or fail at any time. Check the interior of the trunk and glove compartment, and beneath the seats and dashboard for signs of mud, rust or water damage. Look for discolored, faded or stained upholstery and carpeting. Carpeting that has been replaced might fit too loosely or might not match the interior color. Check for a well-defined line, or watermark. Check the history. Ask to see the title. Check the date and place of transfer to see if the car came from a flooddamaged area and if the title is stamped flood damage or salvage. Get a vehicle history report based on the VIN number. A salvage title means an insurance company declared the car a total loss because of a serious accident or other problems. A flood title means the car has damage from sitting in water deep enough to fill the engine compartment. The title status is part of the vehicles history report. Either way, do the inspection and see the records before you buy any used car. With salvage and flood titled cars, you need to be extra careful, as unscrupulous companies and individuals will attempt to mislead buyers by withholding information or intentionally hiding a cars history through a process called title washing. Research the dealer. Check the car dealers business profile at www. bbb.org to see if they have a history of complaints. Ask the dealer directly if the car has been damaged in a flood. Get your answers in writing and walk away if the seller is unwilling to provide clear evidence. Consult a trusted mechanic. Before you buy any used car, you should get a pre-purchase inspection by a trusted mechanic. The extra cost could save you money in the long run if major problems are discovered. DR.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2016 NEWS A15 BEHIND THE WHEELThe return of the big daddy CaddyThe era of the large and luxurious Cadillac has returned. The company never really left the full-size sedan market, but the new CT6 represents a return to opulence that once allowed them to use the motto, The Standard of the World. There has been a bit of prestige lacking from Cadillac lately. The company has brought up the quality of its interior materials and motors (especially in the highperformance V-line.) But Cadillac has not offered a true wow factor in luxury for quite some time. Thats a problem for a brand whose bedrock is prestige. The CT6 feels like it has a touch of Fleetwood flair. From the 1920s through the s, Cadillacs with this name truly were for the upper echelons of society. These were special cars with special bodies, including in 1959 w hen Pininfarina of Italy hand-built the Fleetwoods. These were the cars reserved only for the fattest of fat cats, and made people take notice when the coachbuilt Cadillacs rolled through the center of town.Today the CT6 returns that tradition with a bolder exterior styling than its siblings. It features Cadillacs signature tall headlights that flow into the fenders. But the long hood and stretched LED package gives this car a bit of a sinister smile thats seen even in the daytime. The same feeling is repeated throughout the bodylines. The CT6 has nearly a one-foot longer wheelbase than the other full-size sedan in its lineup, the XTS. While they are similar in overall size, the extra space between the wheels gives the CT6 more time to develop harder creases in its profile. The interior is what really brings this sedan to iconic Fleetwood levels. Leather and wood cover nearly every surface and offer an individual feeling of luxury even for the back seat occupants. There are options for some very innovative features, such as a rear camera that will display in place of the mirror, a touchpad to go with the touchscreen infotainment, and a Bose stereo system with so many speakers that some are even in the headrests. Theres even an available night vision camera that can see far beyond the headlights and displays it underneath the speedometer. This is the genuine wow factor thats been missing for decades. There are not just features for the driver. The rear seats offer an executive level of space, and in fact, an upgrade to the Platinum trim level would eliminate the need for a limousine. This package is the true top of Cadillacs pyramid. It comes with electronically adjusting rear seats with heat, cooling and massage features. Add in other luxuries such as a rear sunroof, power sunshades, dual flip up DVD screens, and an individual climate control for each of the four seating areas, and this is a true fat cat Caddy. The CT6 is also a car that acknowledges Cadillac is no longer alone in the larger premium sedan world. In the last few decades, there have been many European and Japanese competitors that have caught up and surpassed this American luxury standard. The CT6 looks to get back to the top by making available advanced driving features such as automatically adapting magnetic ride control and an array of turbocharged motors. The highest of this line is a 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 producing a healthy 404 hp. In total, the CT6 feels exceptionally sharp on the road without losing a luxury edge falling between a BMW 7-Series and a Lexus LS. The Cadillac XTS was never the right car to hit these kind of luxury high notes, but there is a very good reason for it to continue to exist. The rear-wheel drive CT6 starts at $54,490, which is about $8,200 more than the front-wheel drive XTS (both have all-wheel drive available.) Plus, with every option boxed checked on the XTS, it wont get near the CT6 Platinums $88K+ starting price. Its all part of a smart strategy. The CT6 offers impressive features for the money, but not everyone wants or needs to be the CEO of the neighborhood. So the XTS can keep full-size Cadillac luxury more affordable. But for those select few who remember the individual opulence of the Fleetwood era, modern luxury has finally arrived. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Dogs and cats are struck with maladies similar to those that humans report in cannabis success stories: seizures, inflammation, anxiety, arthritis and other pain and subsequent social withdrawals. The high-producing THC element cannot be used because it is notoriously toxic to dogs, but other elements in the drug seem to work well not only for dogs and cats but, by anecdotal evidence, pigs, horses and domesticated wild animals.Government in actionKevin and Tammy Jones opened their guns-and-coffee store in an old bank building in Hamilton, Va., in August, but despite the controversies about the ease of gun acquisition in America, their Bullets and Beans shop has had a harder time pleasing government regulators over the coffee than over the firearms. Kevin told Washingtonian magazine that there were no problems in getting gun-shop and firearms-instruction permits from state and federal agencies, but several local-government roadblocks delayed the coffee-sales permit: the property being zoned for retail but not food or drinks; permission to open certain businesses near residences; and a coffee shops need to have parking.Latest religious messagesOklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin declared Oct. 13 Oilfield Prayer Day to cap a statewide initiative of mass wishing for improved performance of the states energy industry, which has been in the doldrums recently with the worldwide drop in oil prices. Though the initiatives founders, and the associated Oil Patch Chaplains, were largely Baptist church leaders, the governor emphasized that all religions should be praying for a more prosperous industry.Cultural diversity In September, a court in Paris upheld Frances government ban on people smiling for their passport and identity photos. One official had challenged the required straightforward pose (neutral, mouth closed), lamenting that the French should be encouraged to smile to overcome the perpetual national depression that supposedly permeates the countrys psyche. The baseball-like pesapallo might be Finlands national game, reported The New York Times in September, despite its differences from the American pastime. The ball is pitched to the batter but vertically, by a pitcher standing next to the batter and the batter runs the bases after hitting it, though not counterclockwise but zigzag style, to a base on the left, then one on the right, then back to the left. The game was invented in Finland in 1920 and has achieved minor notoriety, with teams from Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and Australia vying for a world cup that so far none has been able to wrest from Finland. (Reassuringly, however, three strikes is an out in Finland, too.)New World order Too much time on their hands: In an October profile of tech developer and startup savant Sam Altman, The New Yorker disclosed that many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis that what we experience as reality is just some dark forces computer simulation (as in the movie The Matrix). Two tech billionaires, the magazine reported, are secretly engag(ing) scientists to break us out of this alternative universe we might be trapped in. (One prominent member of the tech elite remarked at a Vox Media conference in June on how the simulation hypothesis seems to dominate all conversation whenever the elites gather.)

Suite 202 Naples, FL 34103 School nurses make the grade in Collier CountyWe have so many good things happening in our community that some of our most worthy programs occasionally slip under the radar. One such project is the school nurse program, which has been a collaboration of NCH and Collier County Public Schools for 20 years. I recently visited with Principals Lynda Walcott of Calusa Park Elementary and Jessica Davis of Poinciana Elementary to learn more about this program that benefits 50 schools and 47,000 students. These two schools were suggested as representative of the elementary schools in western Collier County. I should mention that our county has a geographic area larger than the state of Delaware. Thats a lot of ground to cover. For many students, their primary exposure to vital health care is through contact with their school nurse. Establishing a positive and trusting relationship with a school nurse helps to encourage healthy behavior from an early age. It benefits the rest of a childs school career and life. Studies indicate that healthier children record improved attendance, higher academic success and improved graduations rates, with reduced tardiness and fewer distractions associated with illness. NCH has 45 caregivers working in Collier County schools; the team includes RNs, LPNs and school health assistants. We also have seven athletic trainers, one for each high school, helping with high school sports teams. Additionally, CCPS organizes vision and hearing checks for students and, with other partners, provides on-site vision exams and two pairs of glasses to students in need at 33 schools. RNs Lisa Arnold at Calusa Park and Michelle Brice at Poinciana see an average of 30-50 students each day at their respective schools, managing everything from sprained ankles to complex chronic illnesses and disabilities.Survey shows employers, CEOS can make significant impact on health in the workplace THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONThe workplace might be a barrier to mental health and healthy lifestyle goals, with more than a quarter of employees (28 percent) experiencing stress as a result of work always, almost always or very often. This finding demonstrates that employers and CEOs have a clear and critical role in motivating employees to focus on their health and well-being, according to a national survey recently released from the American Heart Association CEO Roundtable. The Nielsen survey found that 40 percent of employees say they want their employer to recognize the level of stress employees are under, followed by allowing for flexibility when they work (30 percent) or where they work (26 percent) in order to reduce or manage their workplace stress. Nearly half (48 percent) say occasionally unplugging or disconnecting from technology has a positive effect on their stress levels. The AHA CEO Roundtables 26 members represent some of the nations largest and most influential corporations and organizations. Under the scientific guidance of the AHA, the group serves as an incubator for new ideas to change the dynamic of health and engagement in the workplace through evidencebased approaches. The objective of the CEO Roundtable is to build a culture of health and wellness in the workplace, says roundtable co-chair Henry Kravis, the Co-CEO of KKR. This latest study reinforces the substantial impact health and wellness programs can have on employee engagement and the responsibility of the CEO to lead by example. The survey results point to key actions employers can take to improve health and well being at their organization. Additional highlights include:Leadership is critical when it comes to addressing obstacles in the workplace that hinder employee health and well-being. Employees who reported knowing their CEO participates in company health programs are much more likely than those who say their CEO does not participate to participate themselves, ultimately reporting better productivity, improved work quality and higher job satisfaction. Understanding health priorities and variances by generation is key to the success of a workplace health program. For example, younger millennials are more likely than older millennials, Generation Xers and baby boomers to say that getting more sleep is in their top three health and lifestyle goals. Gen Xers and baby boomers, on the other hand, are more likely than younger and older millennials to list losing weight as a goal.Sleep is essential to well-being and productivity at work. On average, employees say they are getting close to the recommended amount of sleep per night at 6.7 hours, but only one in four say the quality of sleep they get is excellent or very good. The findings support some strategies that we have deployed within Nielsen, says Mitch Barns, CEO of Nielsen and an AHA CEO Roundtable member. We have seen measurable improvements in innovative health programming that serves the specific needs of employees and that builds a supportive culture that promotes health and productivity.

A nurse at Immokalee High School recently determined a students blood sugar to be above 500 and notified the students physician, who gave orders for increased insulin. The nurse checked the student throughout the school day, and the result was a lower level of blood sugar and a more knowledgeable student, who learned how better to control his diabetes. Principals are great supporters of the school nurse program. One of their goals is to place children with significant disabilities with non-disabled children in such shared activities as physical education, recess and lunch whenever possible, Such sharing has a positive effect on everyone involved. My visits to the two schools in the western area of Collier County inspired me to vow to make future visits with Christene Parker, NCH director of school nursing, and Eileen Vargo, CCPS director of health services, to middle and high schools in eastern Collier County. There are few challenges more rewarding for caregivers than improving the wellness of the youngest members of our society exactly what our school nurse program achieves.

BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen you come home from work, is it to find that your cat has peed on the bed, yowled so desolately all day that the neighbors inquire a little nervously about her well-being, or scratched to ribbons the chair that you just had reupholstered with that expensive fabric? Dont chalk it up to spite. Your cat may be suffering from a condition that almost no one associates with the feline species: separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is more commonly associated with dogs, but despite their reputation for independence, cats can develop it as well, especially if they were orphaned as kittens or weaned too early. These cats may express their anxiety in destructive ways, such as scratching furniture. Older cats can develop separation anxiety in the wake of a divorce or death in the family. They are often more attached to people than they are given credit for, and cats who lose owners this way may pace and cry in search of them. Other signs of separation anxiety include depression, sulking, fighting with other cats, refusing to eat, not using the litter box, spraying urine on the owners clothing and compulsive grooming behaviors, such as licking or pulling at hair until it comes out. Why do cats do these things? It makes them feel better. Take spraying urine on your bedding or clothing please! Your belongings carry your scent, and applying her own scent to them makes your cat feel more secure, almost as if youre there. Its a compliment of sorts, even if its one youd rather not receive. Are you doomed to life with a bald, angry cat who doesnt want you to leave the house? You might not be able to cure your cats separation anxiety, but you can probably manage it successfully by enriching the environment and offering more playtime and attention. To keep your cats mind off your absence, make being home more interesting for him. Leave out a puzzle toy filled with a meals worth of kibble. The time spent releasing the food from the toy is time not spent being destructive. And most cats tend to settle down after the first half-hour that youre gone. Rotate favorite interactive toys so your cat doesnt have a chance to get bored. Put them out only when youre going to be away from home. Give your cat some screen time TV screen, that is. Turn on the TV to a nature channel or play a DVD made for cats. The sights and sounds of birds, fish, squirrels and other animals can help hold a cats interest. Offer a room with a view and a gym. Install a window perch so your cat can watch the squirrels outside, and place a tall cat tree in an interesting spot so he can get some exercise climbing up and down it. Provide live entertainment in the form of a bird feeder set in front of the window or an aquarium placed where your cat can see it but not access it. If possible, build an enclosure in your yard that your cat can access from indoors. A chance to laze in the sun and roll in the grass is relaxing for everyone, including cats. Give your cat a favorite treat when you leave, not when you come home. Spend a few minutes once or twice a day playing with or petting your cat. If your cat knows hell get attention when youre home, hes less likely to be anxious when youre gone. If all else fails, consult a veterinary behaviorist. She may prescribe an antianxiety medication that can help your cat stay calm. Not all cats are loners. Some become anxious when left to their own devices.

PRESEASON SALE 20-50% OFF THE DIVA DIARIESNeed some help imagining autumn?When it comes to autumn, Ill take every little bit I can get. I was over the moon last week when local meteorologists forecast upcoming daytime temps in the low 80s, because while thats still pretty hot by normal standards, at least it means the humidity lifts for a bit. Despite our greatest wishes, its still not boots-and-scarves weather, but its better than a sharp poke in the eye. Nonetheless, if youre like me and youre experiencing major social media envy over the pictures and posts of leaves and hayrides and scarecrows from friends and family residing north of Tallahassee, then you have no choice but to create your own version of autumn right here in the steamy subtropics. I used to think that concocting a season was impossible. But then I met Brooke, who owns Browtopia, a salon that focuses on eyebrows and healthy skin. Every year, starting Oct. 1, Brooke decorates Browtopia with fall leaves, pumpkins and gourds. When I arrive for my appointment and take it all in (while sweating from just having walked from my car), she gently reminds me: Down here, when it comes to seasons, we have to use our imaginations. So, even though 82 degrees is far from a crisp 62 on the thermometer, here are some fun, easy ways to conjure up fall in Southwest Florida: Crank the A/C down to 68, get those fans going and put on some flannel pajamas and slippers while treating yourself to a big slice of pumpkin pie and a glass of apple cider. Close your eyes and listen to the breeze blowing leaves off of the trees outside (its actually palm fronds, but remember, were PRETENDING). Stock up on as many pumpkin spice products as you can. Light a pumpkin spice candle while eating Pumpkin Spice Special K (yes, it exists!) and sipping coffee with pumpkin spice creamer. Watch the movie Autumn In New York while paging through the enormous September issue of Vogue magazine. Picture yourself in cute wool coats and colorful scarves. Carve a pumpkin while enjoying some pumpkin spice vodka on ice (just be careful with the knife, obviously). Take a weekend getaway. Seriously, Jacksonville is only about five hours away, but it truly does have a Florida version of fall. Although its not as chill or vibrant as youd experience farther north, youll get an extra nip in the air and notice the changing of the leaves. Note: With this one, youll have to REALLY crank the A/C down, but if youve got a fireplace, light it. Spray some apple-scented room freshener around the house, put on some fuzzy socks and roast some marshmallows while listening to some Simon and Garfunkel. Voila! Instant autumn. Im notorious for griping about Southwest Floridas lack of autumn every year, but this year I intend to DO something about it. I will throw fake leaves around, start my day with pumpkin spice breakfast cereal and chug apple cider as the A/C works overtime. The one thing I WONT do is wear a pair of Uggs. Thats where I draw the line when it comes to fake autumn. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

B7-8 Storage warsBY NANCI THEORETFlorida Weekly Correspondent George Carlin was on to something 20 years ago in his diatribe about stuff. Thats all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. Thats all your house is: a place to keep your stuff, he famously observed. If you didnt have so much stuff, you wouldnt need a house. You could just walk around all the time. A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. Today, Americans have even more stuff and not enough space, especially here in Southwest Florida where houses lack basements and people often arrive with all their stuff from a bigger home elsewhere. When the stuff doesnt fit and they cant bear to part with it their children might want it one day (they usually dont, by the way) they turn to mini-storage, a place where they can hide their stuff in air-conditioned comfort and visit it 24/7 should they choose. Nearly one of every 10 American households rents a selfor mini-storage unit, said Steve Wilson, CEO and managing partner of HideAway Storage Services, which operates 14 buildings from St. Petersburg to Naples. People have too much stuff, said Mr. Wilson who stumbled into the business in 1977. Americans have too much junk and move a lot.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYage is generated by moving and people who need temporary storage. We move so much more than Europeans and theres a lot of things we dont want to get rid of.With occupancy rates in the 90 percentile nationally, self-storage has become a rapidly growing business. Self-storage buildings, some with multiple stories, RV, boat and kayak storage, drive-in garages and climatecontrolled units for wine collections and other items that tend to wilt in the Florida heat, are popping up everywhere. The Lock Up Self Storage has four local locations, including its newest the four-story 73,000-square-foot building that opened on Tamiami Trail in Bonita Springs in late 2013. The facility offers more than 600 climate-controlled interior and drive-up units, a separate building for vehicle storage and carpeted hallways. It even has Wi-Fi. The industry is so strong generating $27.2 billion in revenue in 2014, according to the trade organization Self Storage Association theres been a surge in construction nationally and locally. Investors are also taking notice. Overall the industry consists of six major public corporations some managed by real estate investment trusts. There are 4,500 large and mid-sized firms that own and operate more than one facility like Mr. Wilsons Hide-Away and more than 26,000 one-facility owner-operators. According to the organization, selfstorage has been the fastest growing segment of the commercial real estate industry over the last 40 years and has been considered by Wall Street analysts to be recession resistant based on its performance since the economic recession of September 2008. The majority of customers, 30 percent, rent a unit for two or more years. Deb Beauregard, whos owned Charlotte County Self Storage since 2010, said 60 percent of her clients have been with the family operated facility for more than a year. The Whidden Boulevard business recently expanded, opening an additional 16,000 square feet and 111 new storage units this month. It now has 380 plus units and 48,000 square feet. Customers, she said, run the gamut: Professionals like doctors, lawyers, dentists and real estate companies that need space to store their records to regular people who store Christmas decorations or even seasonal clothing. The industry is powered by whats commonly referred to as the four Ds: death, dislocation, divorce and disaster. In Southwest Florida theres a fifth: downsizing. Many new residents move here with too much stuff; others simply need a place to put their stuff temporarily. The big thing that drives our business is change: People moving in or out of a house, snowbirds renting out places and locking up valuables or moving, especially in Florida, where most houses dont have basements, said Diane Piegza, vice president of investor relations for Uncle Bobs Self Storage, the fifth largest selfstorage company in the country. The demand is pretty consistent. We typically do well in all kinds of economic environments. During downturns, people are still moving around or downsizing. Uncle Bobs operates 87 facilities in Florida, eight of them in Southwest Florida. It doesnt build its facilities, instead purchasing existing businesses or working with developers willing to take on development risks, then buying the finished product. The companys newest facility opened in 2014 between River Road and Tamiami Trail in North Fort Myers with the addition of a two-story building. Its what the industry calls a second-generation facility with all the bells and whistles driveup and easy access and climate control. First generation self-storage is basic single story buildings with swing doors and sheet rock between units. Our demographic is everybody: College students going home for the summer, empty nesters who are downsizing and dont need all of their furniture but are keeping it for their children, Ms. Piegza said. The beauty of the business is its a really pretty wide net of consumers who need it. After the hurricanes in South Florida, contractors came in to rent units to store their supplies.Mr. Wilson operates about 1.2 million square feet of storage space, is opening a new facility in Ruskin soon, has a site under contract in Cape Coral and is eyeing another in Lehigh. He said his facilities offer every imaginable amenity. Theres even a chaplain available to counsel customers dealing with a loss or major life upheaval. His current locations operate in the high 80 percent occupancy but did see a pretty significant drop 20 to 30 percent during the recessionary years. I think its a myth the industry does well in a recession or boom, he said. Theres so much building right now theres going to be more than enough storage to go around. Were in the midst of this incredible building boom and its going to bust in a couple of years. We all know its going to bust and we all hope were the last one standing. He notes that in Sarasota, four or five multi-story buildings have recently opened within a half mile of each other. He was recently approached for advice by a man who had purchased a former Winn-Dixie and wanted to convert it into self-storage. Never mind, said Mr. Wilson, he didnt understand the demographics or note the site is half a mile from two Hideaway stores and new buildings owned by national companies. Theres a mindset out there if you build storage youre going to be successful, like build it and they will come. Everyones going hog wild. You have to know what youre doing. During the recession a lot of business owners lost their shirts and theyre getting ready to lose their shirts again. For customers, renting a unit comes with a buyer beware caveat. Some companies charge administrative fees, require tenant insurance and offer discounts for the first few months. Then they raise rates fairly high, Mr. Wilson said. There are always arguments about this at conventions. Once someone has moved into a unit they dont want to go through the trouble of moving out. What looked like a good deal isnt. Ms. Beauregard said Charlotte Self Storage keeps its rates low, doesnt charge administrative fees and doesnt require a deposit or insurance. We dont raise prices regularly. Customers have the luxury of knowing their price is going to stay the same. The business itself is one that Mr. Wilson said is not nearly as exciting as reality TV portrays. Only about 155,000 units are auctioned annually, average price: $425. Because privacy is part of the package, owners and managers have no idea what their customers are storing behind those closed doors. Occasionally they get a rare peek inside. Ms. Piegza remembers leading a tour of investors around a facility in Buffalo. We had a gentleman who rents a 10-by-10 unit for his model car collection. He built in shelves, had the door up and was watching a football game. Apparently he had an edict from his wife to get the cars out of the house. Back in the day a lot were used as mancaves. STORAGEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSHide-Away Storage Services operates 14 buildings in Florida, from St. Petersburg to Naples. About 30 percent of self-storage customers rent a unit for two or more years. Those who use storage, like Hide-Away Storage in Naples, do so for a variety of reasons. Charlotte County Self Storage recently opened an additional 16,000 square feet and now has more than 380 units.

I trace my roots back to 1905, when the creator of the Oldsmobile car formed a new company that morphed into the Nuclear Corp. of America. That company bought Vulcraft, a steel joist and girder company, in 1962. In 1965 my new president helped me avoid bankruptcy by selling off some of my businesses and turning me into a steelmaker. My mini mills took off, and as I grew, I shortened my name. Today Im the largest steelmaker in the U.S., and North Americas biggest recycler. Among other things, my products include carbon and alloy steel in many forms. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Medicare Advantage PlansMore than 57 million Americans are enrolled in Medicare, but only about 38 million are enrolled in original Medicare which consists of Part A and Part B, respectively covering hospital and medical services. What are the remaining 18 million-plus signed up for? Well, many have opted for Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare enrollees get to choose original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans and can change between them at least once a year, too, during the annual enrollment period. Medicare Advantage plans, sometimes referred to as Part C, are offered by private insurance companies. Theyre regulated by the U.S. government, though, and are required to provide at least as much coverage as original Medicare and they often offer significantly more coverage.While original Medicare doesnt cover hearing, vision and/or dental care, many Medicare Advantage plans do and they generally include prescription drug coverage, as well. Original Medicare will often have you footing 20 percent of many bills with no end in sight. A Medicare Advantage plan, meanwhile, might charge you a low co-pay per doctor visit or service and will also cap your out-of-pocket spending.There are some downsides, of course. For example, while original Medicare lets you see any health care provider who accepts Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans will typically limit you to a network of doctors though these networks are sometimes very large. Original Medicare wont cover you outside the U.S., but some Medicare Advantage plans do offer limited coverage abroad. To help determine your best choice, make a list of the prescription drugs you take and the doctors you see. Also list the kinds of health care services you need and use, noting any upcoming surgeries or big-ticket expenses. When you review the plans youre considering, see which drugs they cover and which doctors are included and how much youll likely spend out of pocket with each option. The Medicare website, at medicare.gov, offers a tool to help you compare and choose. Note the star ratings of your candidate plans and favor fouror five-star plans. Rookie ErrorsIn the late 1990s, a friend used to show me his portfolio, and I thought I would like to have something to show him, as well. So I opened up a brokerage account and started putting $500 a month into it. Mistake No. 1 was buying ticker symbols, not businesses. I was buying whatever was popular (i.e., tech stocks), with little thought about what those companies actually did. Mistake No. 2 was using margin (i.e., investing with money borrowed from the brokerage). I always owed money and was paying interest. Mistake No. 3 was putting additional money that I needed in the next few years into stocks. As you probably suspect, when the market crashed, I had to sell many of my stocks to cover my margin debts (because the lower the value of your account, the less you can borrow). Within about six months, my accounts value went from around $100,000 to $3,000. At that point, I closed the account and vowed never to invest again. Later, I did a lot of reading and learning about investing and Im back at it, but much more sensibly. S.B., McKinney, TexasThe Fool Responds: Not knowing exactly what youre investing in, or why, or whether its attractively priced is very dangerous. Margin, meanwhile, is appealing because it can amplify your gains but it amplifies your losses, too. You should be enjoying better results now! A Super MarketShares of grocery giant Kroger (NYSE: KR) recently hit a 52-week low, making it even more attractive as an investment. Kroger has been facing challenges such as falling food prices and increased competition. Thats especially tough in an industry known for narrow profit margins. Still, Kroger is a top performer with a lot in its favor. For starters, its industry is defensive. During hard economic times, consumers will cut back on or delay spending on cars, appliances, vacations and other nonessential expenses. Theyll keep spending on categories such as electricity, medicines and groceries, though.Krogers strength is reflected in the fact that its sales in stores open a year or longer have been growing each quarter since 2004 through economic downturns and upturns. Price cuts have hurt its profit margin, but it has more than made up for that through increased volume.Kroger has also been boosting business in its 2,700-plus stores via a growing line of store-branded products that now generate about a quarter of its revenue. It has acquired some competitors, too, such as Harris Teeter and Roundys. Patient believers can enjoy Krogers dividend, which recently yielded 1.6 percent. It has been growing by an annual average of 18 percent over the past five years and still has room to grow. You might want to add shares of Kroger to your shopping cart. Im Americas oldest brewery, tracing m y 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, Pennsylv ania, 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? (Answer: Yuengling) Putting Your Funds in FundsQWhat can I do if I want to invest in a particular mutual fund and my brokerage says it cant help me? F.M., Woodville, MichiganABrokerages vary in the funds they offer. Some offer hundreds, some relatively few. A brokerage may not offer a fund you want, or it may not be able to get you into it if the fund is closed to new investors. Funds will sometimes be closed if the managers believe they have more money than they can invest effectively. (Thats a good thing. Lots of funds just keep taking money, even if they have to park much of it in less promising investments.) Some funds will just do a soft close, though. That means they wont accept new shareholders coming in from third parties such as brokerages, but they will let you invest directly through them, such as via their companys website. It can be convenient to invest in funds through your brokerage, as youll be able to move money between funds and fund companies more easily though there will likely be a commission fee charged. But know that you can usually invest in an open fund directly, via the fund company itself. ***QDo I, a single person, need life insurance? S.W., Nags Head, North CarolinaANot necessarily. Insurance is primarily protection against a financial loss, not an investment. (There are, after all, more effective ways to invest.) If anyone (such as a partner, children, or even your parents) is depending on your income or is tied to any of your debts, such as a mortgage, then buying life insurance is smart. But if no one will be financially hurt should your income stream disappear, consider parking your money elsewhere. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.

PENDING! When the price is right, the property sells NAPLES AREA BOARD OF REALTORSThe third quarter 2016 market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors shows overall inventory increased 40 percent with little change in median closed prices. The overall median closed price for homes on the market increased only 4 percent, from $300,000 in the third quarter of 2015 to $312,000 this year, driven predominately by a 9 percent increase in homes in the $300,000 and below category. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Rick Fioretti, NABOR president and a broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty, says an analysis of price behavior since December 2015 shows median closed prices leveled out in a natural reaction to the increase in inventory. Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc. agrees. I think were seeing the completion of a cycle that began in 2013, she says. Prices have remained relatively stable for over a year, and now Im noticing more competitive value-based pricing as the supply increases. The report shows days on market decreased 12 percent in the $2 million and above price category; overall, however, it shows a 10 percent increase in days on market. Pricing is critical now more than ever, says Dominic Pallini of Vanderbilt Realty. While both pending and closed sales decreased 14 percent quarter over quarter, inventory continued to rise in all areas during the third quarter of 2016. Overall, inventory rose 40 percent, to 5,044 homes this year from 3,606 homes in the third quarter of 2015. Inventory in the condominium market increased 53 percent in the third quarter this year, up to 2,375 residences from 1,557 the same time last year.

Thornton. Book-Broker Publishers. 244 pages. Trade paperback, $19.95. Here is a surprising, inspirational memoir that is at once highly personal and broadly instructive. Paul Thornton, the oldest of six children, was raised in Brooklyn and on Long Island. At school he showed intelligence, though he sometimes bordered on being in trouble. His academic abilities were recognized, often resulting in special educational opportunities. He excelled in situations where expectations of Afro-Americans were unfortunately low. Three years in the Army gave Paul some special skills and a strong work ethic. He was in a program that allowed him to graduate college upon finishing his term in the military. He was able to go on graduate school, and after earning a masters degree was recruited by DuPont, where he steadily moved up the corporate ladder. Home was now in Wilmington, Delaware, near DuPont headquarters. Paul and his wife, Dorey, were on track for a grandly successful life together. However, their ascent was threatened by an unexpected discovery: Paul had a brain tumor for which delicate, highrisk surgery offered the only possible remedy. In 1985, at the age of 29, the future did not look so bright at all. Pauls narration regarding the accumulation of information about his condition, the meetings with a series of physicians include the neurosurgeon who would operate and the long, difficult recovery, is vivid and emotionally powerful. The life-saving operation left him with only one good eye, severely reduced hearing and minimal control over his facial muscles. This is not to mention the long cranial scar. Brain surgery is not for sissies. Over time, further surgeries and therapies mitigated these consequences of the tumor excision, but they did not disappear. Paul was not pleasant to look at, and he knew it. Not being able control his mouth and lips, he had trouble eating and had to drink with a straw. He strove to maintain a positive attitude, but despair was as much a battle as his medical issues. DuPont held on to his job for him, and he was able to make the adjustments that put him back on the track of gaining new and higher responsibilities. He and Dorey had two daughters whom he loved dearly, but sometimes his workaholic ways created barriers. Pauls entrepreneurial streak led him to a successful ride in the video rental industry that took off in the 1980s. He rode it to its conclusion in the age of Netflix. Along the way, he became an educator. After his first marriage failed, he was able to find the right woman to enter married life once again. His ex-wife died while she was still fairly young; his second wife, Cheryl, became quite close to his daughters. Paul Thornton, became an exemplary figure in his professional life and in his communities. (He received a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in 2005, which opened more doors for him as a professor and academic administrator.) Many of the disabilities he labored to hide he was able to come out about as he approached his senior years. This outline of his memoir does not begin to capture the representation of pain, doubt, determination that he so vibrantly portrays. Nor does it capture his love for music and sports. Nor does it touch upon his thrill at becoming a grandfather. There is a degree of detail in the authors presentation of the surgery and its aftermath that is amazing in its clarity and force. That section is an education in itself, but the overall life story is a much more powerful education. When Paul Thornton learned that his decease affected very few Afro-Americans, he dubbed his condition White Mans Disease. The patient reader will discover how that title phrase resonates on many levels through this engaging record of an exemplary life, one still very much in process in Fort Myers, where the Thorntons reside. White Mans Disease would make a great gift to anyone you know who needs a good tonic to fight depression. It is the antidote to feeling sorry for ones self. Beyond that, its just a plain good, well-told story. Find it at www. whitemansdisease.com and also at P.J. Boox in Fort Myers. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYspeak, he says. It didnt even cross my mind. Privately (while writing it), I doubted it would ever get published. The Naples resident didnt intend for The Nix to be about so many things, he says, but he did write it over the span of 10 years. And very slowly, I allowed the real world, the world as I was observing it, to creep into the book. And so, things like the recession, the housing crisis, the war in Iraq, presidential elections, I allowed them to come in. And when you allow whatevers happening in the world in, suddenly the novel will seem like its about everything. Agents and editors require books to be distilled down to an elevator pitch: one or two simple sentences that encapsulate what a book is about. My elevator pitch was really bad, Mr. Hill confesses. Its not the nature of the book to be pitchable in that way. I love that about the book, even if it makes life difficult. He now has various answers at the ready when people ask what his book is about. One answer: Its a family mystery about a mother who disappears and a son who tries to figure out why. Another: Its a work of historical fiction that centers on the 1968 riots and protests in Chicago. And yet another answer: Its a sort of dark comedy that satirizes contemporary society. His answer, he explains, depends on whos asking. Mr. Hill, who used to teach creative writing at Florida Gulf Coast University, will teach a workshop and give a reading at the schools Sanibel Island Writers Conference taking place Nov. 3-6 at BIG ARTS. His reading, at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, is free to the public. (He opens for Old 97s musician Rhett Miller.) His workshop, for conference registrants only, is titled X-Ray Writing. Were going to look at some narrative techniques to get close to a character, he says. The thing I love about reading fiction is that its the closest we can really come to being inside somebody elses brain Fiction is the best invention weve come up with to achieve pure empathy. Thats what Im teaching: how to get really, really close and intimate to a character in writing, so a reader can achieve that, being inside somebody elses head and knowing them from the inside out. The Sanibel Island Writers Conference, now in its 11th year, is almost as jampacked as Mr. Hills filled-to-the-brim-andoverflowing novel. This years keynote speaker, Sue Monk Kidd, is the author of The Secret Life of Bees and more recently, The Invention of Wings, both bestsellers. Other speakers (also teaching at the conference) include novelist/memoirist Joyce Maynard (Under the Influence, At Home in the World), Presidential Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco (The Prince of Los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood) and Old 97s musician/ solo artist, Rhett Miller. The conference, with its 12-hour days, offers classes and workshops in fiction writing, nonfiction, memoir, poetry, screenwriting and ghostwriting.Dreams deferredWhen Mr. Hill graduated from graduate school, he moved to New York City. I imagined myself becoming the hot young writer in the city. That turned out to be laughably wrong, he says. When he wrote, he was focusing on what it could do for his career. The writing was really, really bad, he says. It didnt have any feeling or heart. I was doing it for all the wrong reasons. After receiving rejection after rejection, he stopped writing for a while. Unsure what he was going to do with his life, he became obsessed with playing World of Warcraft. He floundered. He moved to Naples in 2006 for the teaching job at FGCU. I thought: I missed my shot. I guess this isnt going to happen for me, he says about writing a bestseller. Ironically, it was the best thing that couldve happened to him. I felt the freedom to write something that was idiosyncratically me, instead of pleasing agents and editors, he says. I dropped out of New York publishing and querying and quietly wrote this book. The 10-year process was like tending a little garden, he says. It was just something I could tend to for my hour or two a day and enjoy and get some everyday delight out of. Thats where the humor in the book comes in. That was my prerequisite for writing a scene: I had to get some sort of delight or joy out of writing it. If there were no guarantees (itd be published), I might as well enjoy writing it. It was the first thing hed do after waking up. If he produced five handwritten pages in a morning, he considered that a success. The man who used to write short little stories let his writing expand and unwind. Entire paragraphs and pages take diversions and side trips. Mr. Hill calls it jumping down a rabbit hole. His powers of observation are keen, and often humorous. He describes one character as carrying himself in an erect and stiff and regal manner its like he thinks of himself as an expensive and tightly wrapped birthday present. His thin shoes are severe and Italian-looking and have little ski jumps at the tips The knot in his necktie is as tight and hard as an acorn. He describes workers at Disney World as smiling like drunk children. Like gnomes on Ecstasy. And the Its a Small World ride as a horror of narcotized puppets doing the same rote tasks over and over in what Im sure Disney totally did not intend to be an accurate and prescient vision of third world labor. And the parks Main Street USA as this charming little street that multi-nationals like Disney helped annihilate in the real world. Then there are sentences like this one: Every life has a moment like this that breaks you into brand new pieces. Mr. Hill transforms much of his own life into his fictionalized world. One of his main characters, a professor at a university, struggles with a student who hands in a plagiarized paper and a classroom of students who havent done the reading. He also mines his childhood. His protagonist, Samuel, devours the Choose Your Own Adventure series of books and writes his own version, The Castle of No Return, for a school project. Mr. Hill did the same thing as a youngster. The Nix also has a section that contains a more adult version of Choose Your Own Adventure books. I liked the game aspect of them, he says. I liked that it was a book but also a game at the same time. As a child, he says, he assumed there was one perfect way to get through the story and would always try to find it. I was writing about this character Samuel, that he would feel the same way, that he screws it up, but that he would want life to resemble a Choose Your Own Adventure story. It is a fun little moment in the book. Everything changes, the tone, the point of view, to shake up the book a little bit. I wanted to show that in certain crucial ways he still hasnt grown up, hes still playing games. Mr. Hill also includes a chapter that contains a 10-page sentence. In his hands, these things come across as clever, not gimmicky.SuccessThe Nix of the title refers to a Norwegian ghost who would appear to children in the form of a white horse. Barely believing their luck, the children climbed on the horses back and, after trotting and galloping around, the horse galloped off a cliff and the children died. Samuels Norwegian grandfather says the moral of the story is: Dont trust things that are too good to be true. But Samuels mother thinks the moral is: The things you love most will one day hurt you the worst. The Nix, she tells her son, used to appear as a horse, but nowadays it appears as a person. Usually its someone you think you love, she says. People can be a Nix for each other. Mr. Hill likes the title not only because its the name of something but because its also a verb, as in to nix something. I like the word play, he says. In the book, three generations Samuel, his mother and her father look back at certain choices they made. Its a theme that keeps repeating: certain choices that we make, Mr. Hill says. A small moment somewhere can really change your life. But also, if you obsess on that small moment, youre not going to recognize or appreciate the life you actually have. Regret can cloud what is actually going on in your life; you start living in the narrow confines of regret, or the past, and it becomes a shell beyond which you cant see. Living with this regret has become a major part of their lives. Since its release in late August, The Nix has received accolades and recognition far beyond Mr. Hills expectations. It was a New York Times bestseller and the Book of the Month selection for Barnes & Noble, Powells, GQ, Vogue, People, Indie Next and vulture.com. Publishers Weekly, New York magazine, Harpers Bazaar, Entertainment Weekly, the Huffington Post and Strand Bookstore all selected it as Best of the Season. The Nix will go down as one of the best debut books of the year, the Dallas Morning News wrote. Hill has so much talent to burn that he can pull off just about any style, imagine himself into any person and convincingly portray any place or time.

FRIDAY & SATURDAY 8:00 P.M. SUNDAY 2:00 P.M.IN TOBYE STUDIO Pitching an agent topic of panel BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comFor writers, talking to literary agents is a mixed bag: You want win their approval, but the very thought can be daunting, if not terrifying. Im very approachable; come over and say hi and tell me what youre working on, says JL Stermer of New Leaf Literary & Media. Shes one of three agents participating on a panel at the Sanibel Island Writers Conference, joining Nicole Tourtelot and Christopher Schelling. Ms. Stermer recognizes that agents often make writers nervous. Were busy, theres no way around that, she says, but sometimes people misinterpret curtness and expediency with not-niceness. Writers, she says, go through a lot of different emotions at once: Youre excited about your project, nervous about pitching it. Youre feeling sensitive, and if youre not getting a warm, engaged reaction, it can be hard and it can be scary, she acknowledges. Sometimes Im cold-calling people (when pitching writers proposals), so I get it, she adds. Theres a misperception that agents are too busy for you, not interested, and maybe dont care, when the truth of the matter is, were here to find clients. Agents are not as scary as you might think they are. They just have a lot on their plates. She receives more than 100 queries a month, but says she gets most of her projects through referral or me just being out and about My eyes are always open, and I always have business cards with me. Im interested in being with people, learning what theyre excited about. Being an agent, she adds, is not a 9-to5 job. I feel Im always working. She attends a handful of writing conferences every year and first attended the Sanibel Island Writers Conference two years ago. Its good energy there, she says. Everything runs so smoothly, and (conference director) Tom (DeMarchi) is amazing People come to work and have a good time. That vibe is right there from when you arrive. Ms. Stermer, who specializes in nonfiction, is interested in books that are part of the current zeitgeist, including: comedy, LGBTQ issues, social justice, memoirs, lifestyle, pop culture. And she looks for books to which she reacts emotionally. I need to feel, she says. I need to laugh, cry, get angry, be curious. For every agent, she adds, choosing a book is a subjective thing, a matter of matching up the right writer with the right idea with an agent whos on the same wavelength and can sell the book. If its not for me, its not for me, she says. I dont want to waste my time or your time. Its a numbers game. Its totally like dating I use that analogy all the time. COURTESY PHOTOJL Stermer, an agent with New Leaf Literary & Media is hugely entertaining and unfailingly smart, and the author seems incapable of writing a pedestrian sentence or spinning a boring story, wrote Teddy Wayne in a New York Times Book Review, calling The Nix the love child of Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace. Mr. Hills been compared to novelist John Irving, and Mr. Irving turned around and compared Mr. Hill to Charles Dickens. The book will be published worldwide in more than 20 languages, including German, French, Italian, Greek, Finnish and Norwegian.The overwhelming positive response has been great, a dream come true, Mr. Hill says. I think all this attention wouldve messed with my head if I was 25 years old, but Im 40 and have gone through a lot of life. In a kind of everyday way, (life) hasnt changed too much.Hes intensely aware as he works on his second novel, he says, that when I go to sit down and work with that blank page, that blank page does not care how much attention Ive gotten. Instead of writing about drugs, gore and violence, as he did when younger, he now writes about what he knows. Sometimes, the most dramatic moments come from the smallest things, the little worries, anxieties, the things in your day-to-day life that youre worried about, he says, and I think those are the things that actually make for great fiction. The weird thing about fiction is that some of the most intimate stuff turns out to be the most universal. WRITERSFrom page 4

He is an introverted farmer, and she is the woman who vows to have him at all costs. When his father threatens to disinherit Anthony, Rosemary steps into the middle of a land feud and family eccentricities ensue beyond what one might imagine. Full of dark humor and poetic prose, the tender-hearted portrait reminds us that love, early or late, always arrives on time. TNP veteran Denise Villarreal portrays Rosemary Muldoon, and Greg Sofranko makes his debut with the company as Anthony. Bonnie Knapp is Aoife Muldoon, the silly and widowed mother of Rosemary. Michael Troop plays Tony, Anthonys weathered father. TNP intern Sarah Chichester directs the production. A graduate of NYU in educational theater, Ms. Chichester has directed Off-Broadway, Off-OffBroadway and regionally in Chicago, Washington D.C., and New Jersey. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYIt was a dark and stormy night If youve never seen The Rocky Horror Show and have no idea what its about, the sign in the lobby of the Sugden Community Theatre provides your first hint that this isnt your typical show. Ladies and gentlemen, please refrain from touching or manhandling the actors. Violations of this will result in immediate removal from the audience, it reads. Then, right at the entrance to the theater, another sign: This production is rated R for strong sexual content and contains fog, a strobe effect and a non-tobacco vapor cigarette. Dont say you havent been warned. I attended on a Friday night, because theyre participatory nights, which means the audience interacts with the actors (minus touching and manhandling). It is, truly, the best way to experience Rocky Horror, because as a show itself, its not that remarkable. Its a spoof of a grade B sci-fi movie mixed with some kink. Just-engaged sweethearts Brad and Janet get a flat tire on their way home from a friends wedding. Of course, its nighttime and its raining. They make their way to a nearby castle to use their phone, but the castle turns out to be the laboratory of a mad scientist who calls himself a sweet transsexual from Transsexual, Tran sylvania. A la Dr. Frankenstein, hes bought a man to life only this is a muscle man, Rocky, and hes created him to be his own living sex toy. The doctor favors corsets, fishnet stockings and high heels, an outfit that was much more racy back in the mid1970s when this show was first staged. (Today the term transvestite, of course, is considered pejorative, and only used by the ignorant and/or hostile.) Rocky Horror started out in 1973 in Londons West End. In 1975 it was made into a movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf. It could have sunk into obscurity, but instead it became a cult favorite, with midnight showings and over-the-top audience participation. I remember seeing the movie at midnight in the Village in New York. Everyone dressed as their favorite characters and re-enacted scenes in the aisles and on the stage itself, in front of the silver screen. When someone onscreen said, I propose a toast, scores of slices of toast sailed through the air. At a wedding scene, everyone threw rice. Set responses are to be shouted at the actors. Whenever Brads name is spoken, youre supposed to yell, Asshole! And at the mention of Janets name, Slut! Some of this happened at the Sugden on Friday night. Some attendees dressed up. I saw a couple of pink boas, a gold sparkly top hat. One woman wore a French maids outfit. No pointy party hats, though. Director/choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara has gone all out with this show and has done an excellent job. She has the Phantoms slink about in the lobby prior to the show, silent and skulking. They roam the theater itself, too, as theatergoers find their seats, pausing to glower at one patron and then another. Costume designer Dot Auchmoody also outdid herself. While one Phantom looks like Billy Idol from outer space, others are more goth or like attendees at a leathermen convention. Misha Ritter, one of the Phantoms, gives the pre-curtain talk. Dressed in black with silver studs and wielding a riding crop, she proceeds to bark directions to the audience like a dominatrix. Brash and definitely in control, she gave one of the more entertaining pre-show speeches Ive seen. In fact, I wish shed do them for other shows as well. Wouldnt that be great for My Fair Lady, I couldnt help thinking. However, my heart sank at some of the instructions she doled out. If you bring anything from home to throw, as most Rocky Horror devotees do, youll be evicted if you throw it. That means no rice, no toast, no water pistols (to recreate the rain scenes). You can only throw items from a $5 bag you can purchase in the lobby. And if you do lob anything, you cant send it toward the stage, the actors or the orchestra pit. Which kind of takes the fun out of everything. The only way you can throw something? Up and back. She had us repeat that a couple of times. I felt sorry for the people in the rear of the theater who would wind up getting pelted with everything until I realized that there was really nothing in the bag to throw. The venue, probably nervous about patrons getting hit with projectiles and possible litigation, pretty much de-fanged the show in that regard. But thank God the crowd was wonderfully raucous and rowdy. Jim Corsica, stiff and somber, acts as the Narrator, reciting his lines dutifully. He plays off the audience at times, adlibbing with a straight face. (After a particularly thunderous shouting of Slut! when Janets name was mentioned, he said, Oh, I see you know her.) Mark Vanagas plays Dr. Frank-N-Furter with manic glee. Its a role he was born for, portraying the mad doctor as if Bette Davis had a dominatrix outfit and a penis. He makes grand entrances; near the end, when he descends a staircase as if he were Dolly Levi, you practically expect the cast to burst out singing, Hello, Dolly! Amy Hughes, as a perky and flirty usherette, opens the show with Science Fiction. And Jesse Hughes and Jasmine Vizena as Brad and Janet are suitably square and nave. Their harmonies in Over at the Frankenstein Place are particularly lovely. Rocky (Michael Pineda) makes up in muscles what he might lack vocally, and during a lackluster Hot Patootie number, his gyrations on the side of the stage were more fun to watch than the lead singer. Charles Fornaras band, heavy on horns (sax, trumpet, trombone), acquitted themselves admirably, playing the rock/pop music with zeal.Ms. Fornaras choreography is especially fun and inventive. At one point, during Damn It, Janet, the Phantoms spell out her name with their bodies. They also morph into a car, using their bodies as windshield wipers and doors that open and close.The set (Sam Gonzalez and Mark Santos) is suitably creepy (coffin-shaped front door and inside window) and sexy (the levers of the doctors machinery look like dildos.) Its an impressive, but unfortunately the upper tiers block sightlines and some action can only be seen from the center seats. The Time Warp Dance was a highlight of the show, but not many in the audience participated. It was a lively evening, even when (as always happens) things began to lag. Its all silliness, anyway, not meant to be taken seriously though the affirmation dont dream it, be it is thrown in at the end. The audience I saw it with contained a few die-hard fans who shouted out the responses. (And apparently theyve evolved over the decades, because when the doctor motioned to someone to take off his bloodied gloves, someone shouted out, Here, give these back to OJ Simpson! Thats the type of show it is. If this offends you, its not for you.) If you plan to see Rocky Horror, I suggest going on a participatory Friday night, because the theater off-stage is as much fun as the theater on-stage. But remember, you wont be allowed to throw anything. Its crude, rude and definitely juvenile. But not half as edgy as it was when it began. Whats that quote attributed to Yogi Berra? Nostalgia aint what it used to be. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Rocky Horror Show>>Who: The Naples Players >>When Through Nov. 6 (special late-night show at 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28) >>Where: The Sugden Community Theatre >>Cost: $40 ($10 for students 21 and younger) >>Info: 263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.org DREW AND KAREN ATTANASIO / COURTESY PHOTOStraight-and-narrow Janet and Brad (Jasmine Vizena and Jesse Hughes, at right) react to the outlandish Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Mark Vanagas) in a scene from The Rocky Horror Show by The Naples Players.

Performances Jan. 11 Feb. 5NEEDED2 Principal Women: (1) Age 25-40, (1) Age 50+ 3 Principal Men: (2) Ages 20-45, (1) Age 45+ FILM CAPSULESThe Accountant (Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons) An autistic accountant (Mr. Affleck) is secretly a highly trained killer in this action drama from director Gavin OConnor (Warrior). The role is perfect for Mr. Affleck, the story is gritty in a good way and the action is solid. Rated R.Keeping Up With The Joneses(Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Zach Galifianakis) Suburbanites Jeff and Karen (Isla Fisher) are thrown for a loop when spies (Mr. Hamm and Ms. Gadot) move in next-door and need Jeff to complete their mission. Its not funny, the story is nonsense and the directing is lethargic. Its one of the worst movies of the year. Rated PG-13. American Honey (Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough) At 18 years old, Star (Ms. Lane) leaves her dysfunctional family to join a travelling magazine sales team. Its not quite a testament to American youth, and it doesnt have the arc of a typical coming-of-age tale. Did I enjoy watching it? At times. Will I ever watch it again? No. Do I think other people will like it? Probably not. Is it a good movie? No. Rated R.The Birth Of A Nation (Nate Parker, Aja Naomi King, Armie Hammer) A literate slave (Mr. Parker) becomes a preacher and leads an uprising in 1831 Virginia. Its well told, but killing in the name of religion might rub some viewers the wrong way. Based on a true story. 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.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.Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children (Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterf ield) Teenager Jake (Mr. Butterfield) 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.

UPCOMING GAMES Friday, October 28 SWEETS IN THE SUITES Saturday, October 29 Kids Trick or Treat in the Suites VS CONTRACT BRIDGERisky business BY STEVE BECKERThere are hands where declarer might appear to be subjecting himself to an unnecessary risk during the play. Yet when these hands are later analyzed, it often can be demonstrated that the so-called risk was not really a risk at all, since it improved declarer's chances without exposing him to any greater jeopardy than he already faced. Consider this deal where South was in four spades and the defense started by taking the first three club tricks. East then shifted to the heart queen, taken by South with the ace. Declarer cashed the A-K of trumps and then abandoned further trump leads, leaving the jack outstanding. Next he played the A-K of diamonds and a third diamond to the queen. After West discarded a heart, South led his last diamond, ruffed it with dummys last trump, ruffed a heart in his hand and scored the last two tricks with the Q-6 of spades. It might seem that declarer was living dangerously when he began playing diamonds while a trump was still out, since one of the diamonds might have been ruffed. Nevertheless, Souths line of play was absolutely correct. If declarer had drawn a third round of trumps, he would have made the contract only if the opposing diamonds were divided 3-3, and he would have failed against the actual distribution. By playing as he did, though, declarer would not only make the contract if the diamonds were 3-3 in which case he would have drawn the last trump before cashing his fourth diamond but also if the player with the greater diamond length held the missing jack of trumps, as in the actual case. Of course, if the diamonds were divided unevenly and the player with the diamond shortness held the jack of trumps, South would have gone down one. But in that case, the contract could not be made regardless of what he did.

NoEverything about Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is too easy. Ex-soldier turned vagabond do-gooder Jack (Tom Cruise) knocks out bad guys with two punches, sometimes even fewer. He gets himself and Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) out of a military prison without much resistance. He pieces together clues in no time just by thinking about them. He forms an instant bond with Samantha (Danika Yarosh), who may or may not be his daughter. Heck, for a movie titled Never Go Back, it sure is easy to get him back into military offices in Washington, D.C. all it takes is the allure of dinner with Turner. The point is, if everything feels like its on cruise control (pun intended) and theres little in terms of hardship and adversity, then director Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) isnt giving the audience much to watch. This is a serviceable, average and unimpressive movie, the kind you bypass in theaters and catch on a random night at home when theres nothing else to watch. The plot, lazy and predictable and twist-less as it is, is not a direct sequel to the far superior 2012 original. Turner and Reacher are framed for murder. Crooked military higher-ups believe the two know too much about black market dealings and need to be silenced. Tagging along as Turner and Reacher avoid authorities and beat up inept henchmen is 15-year-old Samantha, a teenage girl who acts just like a teenage girl. The problem is a teenage girl doesnt belong in this story. Theres no need for her; her contributions are minimal, and all she does is give Reacher one more thing to worry about. Its not that Ms. Yaroshs performance is bad, its that everything about her character is superfluous. The script by Mr. Zwick, Richard Wenk and Marshall Herskovitz is so inert that the main bad guy (Patrick Heusinger) doesnt even have a name. Perhaps this is how Lee Childs novel on which the movie is based also depicts the villain I dont know. But I do know that a nameless enemy, though menacing, is less interesting, especially with no other personality quirks. Worse, the action is scant and mediocre. Car and foot chases strain for originality, and the fistfights are over quickly. Granted, the story does have some interesting moments, but they are too few. The one thing the film gets right is the personality of Turner, whos essentially a female Reacher. Tough and disciplined, she can hold her own with the bad guys. At one point she and Reacher argue about whos going out to find information and whos going to stay home with Samantha. Given how Tom Cruise-based the movie is (hes also a producer), kudos to him for sharing the spotlight with a female, and to Ms. Smulders for playing it convincingly. If only that were enough to make Jack Reacher: Never Go Back worth seeing. It is not. But at least its a redeeming virtue in a picture thats otherwise completely forgettable. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Aside from the Mission: Impossible franchise, this is the only sequel Tom Cruise has made.

CELEBRITY EXTRAGood Wife spinoff set for February BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: One of my favorite shows was The Good Wife. Any chance for a revival, or perhaps a big-screen feature? Felicia F., via emailA: Coming this February, CBS All Access will stream a whole new spinoff series of The Good Wife starring Christine Baranski, who will reprise her role as the beloved Diane Lockhart, which earned her six Emmy Award nominations. She will be joined by fan-favorite Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn, and Sarah Steele will reprise her role of Marissa Gold. Just added to the roster is Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey alum Rose Leslie, who will play Maia Sindell, the goddaughter of Diane.The new series is set one year after the events of The Good Wife finale. An enormous financial scam has destroyed Maias reputation while simultaneously wiping out Dianes savings. No longer welcome at Lockhart and Lee, the two end up together with Lucca Quinn at another one of Chicagos top firms.Were thrilled to have Rose on board, said executive producers Robert and Michelle King. We needed a young actress who could hold her own with Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, and Rose is perfect. Shes real, shes strong, and she can play comedy. If we designed an actress from the ground up, we couldnt have done better.Q: My absolute favorite TV show is The Amazing Race, and I am very disappointed it is not on the fall schedule. Would you please tell me if it will be returning? Sue C., via emailA: The Amazing Race, CBSs awardwinning reality/competition show, will be back for its 29th season, with original plans for a midseason show. As of this writing, an exact date had not been announced. As it now stands, the freshman series MacGyver has been granted a full-season order, and with it playing in the normal Friday-night timeslot for The Amazing Race, unless it changes nights/ times, its possible that Race could premiere as late as this coming summer. Q: What has Javier Bardem been up to lately? Daniel F., Albuquerque, N.M.A: Javier and real-life spouse Penelope Cruz are teaming up for Escobar, a biopic about the infamous drug lord (played by Javier) and the television journalist (Penelope) who fell in love with him. Peter Sarsgaard also recently signed on to the film, and he will play DEA Agent Neymar, who is on the hunt to bring Escobar down. Starting May 26, 2017, you also can see Javier play Capt. Salazar in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, opposite Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush.

The high-back chair with molded bannisters, turned legs and a rush seat are part of an old tradition. Furniture makers in Connecticut created this style and used it from about 1740 to 1770. Almost all of the Heart and Crown chairs were painted black or dark brown and all had the rush seat. A chair 44 inches high and attributed to Andrew Durand of Milford, Conn., auctioned for $9,000, three times the estimate. Q: My aunt gave me a set of dishes that were a wedding present to her. She died about five years ago at the age of 90, so I think this set must be 70 to 75 years old. They are marked Lifetime China Co., semi-vitreous, Alliance, Ohio, Jade Rose. They also are stamped Nautilus, Made in U.S.A. What could I expect to get if I sold this set? A: Your aunts dishes arent as old as you think. The name Lifetime China Co. was used from 1953 to 1968 by a distributor associated with Cunningham and Pickett and Associated Companies in Alliance. It sold products made by other companies. These Jade Rose dishes were made by Homer Laughlin on the Nautilus shape. Dinnerware sets are hard to sell and some consignment shops wont even take them. Plates sell online for as little as $5. A platter could cost $35. Q: Id like the name of a reputable person who possibly could review a card and signature by Laura I. Wilder and provide a Certificate of Authenticity. A: The value of an autograph depends on the fame of the person and rarity. It is also determined by how it is written. If its part of a handwritten letter, its usually worth more than the same persons autograph on a card or scrap of paper. In 2014, a note on the back of a Christmas card written and signed by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of Little House on the Prairie books, sold at auction for $1,875. Two of her books with her handwritten signature sold in one lot for over $3,000 in 2012. She usually wrote out Ingalls and didnt use just an initial. If the autograph you have is just an initial, it may not be authentic. You can find places that authenticate autographs online, or you can contact an expert at an auction house that sells autographs. Q: I have an Australian military spoon I believe to be from World War II. The Australian Army Rising Sun logo with the Kings Crown stamped on the top of the handle dates it to pre1953. On the back of the spoon, it reads Made in Japan. What can you tell me

LICENSED & INSUREDPROUDLY USING AFTER BEFORE D&INSURED E MENTION THIS AD TO GET COURTESY PHOTOThe style of this $9,000 Heart and Crown chair was popular for only about 30 years. It is prized by collectors of 18th-century American furniture. about this? A: There are seven different versions of the Australian Rising Sun badge. The badge originally was designed for the Australian military that served in South Africa during the Second Boer War and was worn on a slouch hat. The first version, used beginning in February 1902, was based on an early design of the crown with swords and triangular bayonets around it. On the second version in April 1902, the swords and bayonets were replaced by rays of various lengths. The third version was used after April 1904. The words Made in Japan were used between 1921 and 1945, and again fr om 1952 to the present. The Australian military wouldnt have used something made in Japan during World War II, so the spoon probably was made before 1941. Q: I heard the Princess Diana Beanie Baby is worth a lot of money. I have one of the purple bears with the heart-shape swing tag that reads Princess. It also has a poem commemorating Princess Diana. Its in perfect condition. What is it worth? A: Ty Warner started making stuffed toys in 1991. The first Beanie Babies were made in 1993. The Princess Beanie Baby was introduced in October 1997, two months after Princess Diana was killed in a car crash. Profits from the sale were donated to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Retailers received shipments of the bears from Ty in limited quantities, driving up demand, and prices rose on the secondary market. There are slight differences in the tags and stuffing in different editions of the bear. Early editions were stuffed with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pellets. The company began using polyethylene pellets in 1998. The tag on the bears tush tells which stuffing was used. Most editions of this bear sell for $10 to about $30. Dont look to online sellers to establish value. Remember, a seller can ask whatever he wants, looking for a gullible buyer. Check listings that have sold after several bids to get a more realistic idea of the bears value. Although you may see a first-edition Princess Beanie Baby advertised for sale online for as much as $500,000, it wont sell for that. Most first-edition Princess Beanie Babies sell for less than $50. Tip : Dont put a decorative runner or vase on your wooden table if it is in sunlight. Eventually the finish will fade around the ornaments and leave a shadow of the items on the wood.

Upon reflection, I concluded that wine can reasonably be stored in any kind of nonreactive container, even a can. In fact, Ive seen wines that come in cute plastic individual wine tumblers with a stem and everything. So theres really no good reason, aside from tradition and maybe a bit of snobbishness, that wine cant be placed in a convenient, airtight can. It works for beer. The issue, however, is not the preservation of the beverage, but the quality. These days, winemakers are appealing strongly to millennials by developing cutesy names and packages for all kinds of wine. In a previous column, I noted the new Loco wines from Spain that come wrapped in an adorable little straitjacket. A bit extreme, perhaps, but they do get attention. The market for canned wine more than doubled in the past year and amounted to over $6 million in sales. A drop in the wine bucket compared to the overall industry, but a fivefold increase over 2012. As we know, cans are especially efficient at containing bubbly beverages, so its no surprise that most of the increase came from sparkling wines like miniChampagnes, and easy drinking casual wines, such as ros. Recent consumer surveys stress the desirability of keeping the wine at the proper temperature and being able to take it just about anywhere. So theres quite a bit to be said for packaging wine this way. You can take it all kinds of places without having to lug heavy bottles or large ice chests. But the big question, of course, is this: Is the stuff any good? The answer is a qualified yes. Most of us are not going to take a $200 bottle to the beach or the parking lot outside the stadium, so the quality of most canned wines is in the middle range, which is OK. A few that I received are reviewed below, along with other new recommendations. Sample widely. Seven Daughters Moscato Veneto NV ($14.99/4-pack cans) A slightly fizzy white with a light lemon color and tutti-frutti flavors on the palate. A bit sweet, with a sugar cane flavor on the finish. This would go well with spicy foods. WW 88. Seven Daughters Pinot Noir NV ($14.99/4-pack cans) A bit richerlooking than some Pinots, offering flavors of wood, smoke and earth, which is not typical of New World wines. A nice surprise, and tastes a bit more expensive than it is. WW 90. Michael David Freakshow Lodi 2013 ($20) Big, rich and inky in the glass, aromas of charred oak, bold black fruit flavors and a really interesting label design. WW 90. Ct Mas Blanc Mditerrane Languedoc 2015 ($11) Interesting blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, with flavors and aromas of hyacinth, melon and citrus. This would go well with cream sauce dishes. We drank the whole bottle. WW 91. Edmeades Zinfandel Mendocino 2013 ($20) Rich black fruit and hints of cinnamon. Great with barbecue and sweet spicy sauces. WW 89. Chteau du Taillan Mdoc 2012 ($18) Traditional blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, aged 12 months in oak. Red cherry on the nose, with pronounced vanilla on the palate and a slight bit of sweetness. WW 91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Id like to take a few bottles of my favorite wines on an upcoming trip, but of course, airlines wont allow them on board. Whats the best way to ship my wine as checked baggage? Peter H., Bonita SpringsA: There are several ways to solve this problem. First is to buy a piece of luggage made especially for the purpose, such as a SkyCrate, which is what I use. It holds up to 12 regular-size bottles and is practically indestructible, but its fairly large and mainly for professionals. If you order wine online, you can use the shipping box in which you receive your bottles. The styrofoam or egg crate inserts will protect them just fine. You can also tuck a few wine bottles in your regular luggage by sealing them in leakproof padded plastic sleeves like the Wine Skin, the VinniBag or the Travelon inflatable pouch. These are all available at most wine stores or online. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group.

CUISINEBig Hickory still reeling in seafood lovers with fruity favoritesIve been revisiting some old favorites in Bonita Springs lately, anticipating the onset of season and the competition for parking spaces and restaurant tables that ushers in. Driving west on Bonita Beach Road last week, I noticed hot spots like Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille and The Fish House already are packing in diners. Big Hickory Seafood Grille is a little more off the beaten path, being tucked into an old bayside marina on a quiet stretch of Hickory Boulevard. The restaurant wasnt too busy when we arrived in the early evening of a weeknight, and the marine-themed dining room remained deserted. Thats because diners eager to enjoy the first cool breezes after summers stifling heat and humidity as well as the expansive view of boats, mangrove islands and birds on the air and in the water made a beeline for the open-air deck. Marina restaurants in general are not often known as great dining destinations. Often they stick to basic, convenient fare such as fish sandwiches and burgers for boaters docking for a quick meal between fishing runs. Not so at Big Hickory Seafood Grille, which is a destination in itself. A casual setting with serious food, Big Hickory enjoys a reputation for awardwinning dishes that play with local seafood and fruit. Think plantain-crusted grouper with banana-infused sauce and shrimp tacos drizzled with Key lime aioli. The popularity of such signature items might explain why the menu has not changed much over the years. However, Big Hickory did have a Lobtoberfest promotion running this month to celebrate Maine lobster. Brown butter lobster sliders? ($12.50) Yes, please. We started with those and the mussels and clams Chardonnay ($18), along with 16-ounce drafts of Red Nook Ale ($4.25). We thought maybe it was a misspelling of Red Hook, but our server insisted it was a Florida brew. We could not find it online. The beer and wine selection is fairly limited. There are four whites and three red wines, offered in quarter-, halfand full-liter servings. The three small rolls stuffed with chunks of warm lobster were simply dressed with brown butter vinaigrette, a nice, slightly nutty alternative to the classic mayo-based lobster roll (which Big Hickory also has for $21). There was a good amount of fresh-tasting meat in each roll, which was kind of surprising for the price. The mussels and clams, on the other hand, seemed a bit overpriced. The handful of Pine Island clams were puny and outnumbered by the mussels, which were a little more substantial in size. We liked the tasty broth so much that we sopped it up with bread. Chardonnay turned out to be a good pairing, complementing the b utter, ga rlic, onion and cilantro in the broth. Those appetizers were impressively quick to arrive, which was not true of the rest of the meal. The restaurant appeared to have ample servers on duty to handle the growing crowd, but service slowed noticeably. Our entrees included house salads, which were mindfully composed. A mix of fresh red and green lettuces and chard was topped with grape tomatoes, julienned carrots, sliced cucumbers and slivered red onion. There are a half-dozen sandwiches, including shrimp poboy, prime rib and crab cake on kaiser rolls or pretzel buns. For lighter appetites, an equal number of salads can be upgraded with fish, shrimp or chicken for an additional $6 to $9. From the menu of signature items, we opted for the Mahi Coco Loco ($29) and apple-mango grouper ($32), both of which are old standbys. The former was a 6-ounce fillet coated in shredded coconut and panko crumbs and topped with a pineapple and coconut rum beurre blanc sauce with chunks of fruit. That might sound like a lot of coconut, but the sweet flesh did not overwhelm the main attraction of the crisply crusted yet moist fish. Rice and steamed broccoli and cauliflower completed the plate nicely. This dish is still a winner. The same sides came with the grouper, an 8-ounce fillet drizzled with a passion fruit sauce and topped with apple-mango salsa. The salsa fruits were diced a little too finely to yield significant bursts of flavor, but the passion fruit certainly added a lot of tang to the plate. The pan-seared fish was perfectly moist and flaky. We finished with a wedge of moist carrot cake ($6.50) and good coconut cream pie with buttery crust ($6.50). Standing by tried-and-true dishes year after year might be considered resting on ones laurels. On the other hand, the folks behind Big Hickory have a formula that aint broke so why try to fix it? drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Big Hickory Seafood Grille>> Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $9-$18; entrees, $12-$32 >> Beverages: Beer and wine >> Specialties of the house: Seafood >> Volume: Dining room can be loud when busy. >> Parking: Marina lot, or by boat off Estero Bay by Channel Marker 60 >> Website: FacebookRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 26107 Hickory Blvd., Bonita Springs; 992-0991 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYLobster laced with brown butter vinaigrette slides down easily.

Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air and are priced from just over $1 million.

Furnishings will be clean lined with fabrics that include leather against cotton and linen. Upon exiting the elevator into the private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces will evoke a sense of being beachside. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric will be set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water. In the wide foyer, a long side wall will accommodate a p utty colored console table and a stylish wall-mounted mirror. An area rug will add a layer of texture. The foyer opens to the expansive great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking views through sliding glass doors onto a spacious terrace. In the living area, a dramatic 10-foot wide fireplace will be installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create bright display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Accent pillows will provide textured contrast while maintaining tone-on-tone elegance. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore. To highlight the adjacent dining area, Bleda and Porco have designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier will illuminate a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console will stand against a wall with a matte metallic finish. The contemporary L-shaped kitchen will feature a counter-height island. Counter stools in a matte gold finish will be upholstered in a shimmery bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting will showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes will be selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. Many of the cabinets will feature frosted glass fronts. The bisque color scheme will continue on the terrace. Bleda and Porco have selected a wicker furniture in neutral tones offering both style and comfort. The space will allow for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view will feel like a natural extension of the beauty inside. A hallway leads to the den and two guest suites that open to another wide terrace at the front of the building. The multi-purpose den will offer a relaxed retreat space that can function as an office, a separate lounging area, or as an additional bedroom. The plan calls for light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a spacious desk. An armchair and ottoman will be grouped with a sleeper sofa. In the master suite, the neutral wall tones will deepen slightly by way of contrast. Bleda and Porco will continue the seaglass motif in this serene private retreat by artfully incorporating Lucite into the design. A contemporary four poster bed will command attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect will be solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands will showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser will be entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her closets leads to the master bathroom where the design will include sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper. Visit the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com.

Mediterra celebrates an impressive decade of dominance as Naples 10-time Community of the YearMediterra continues to reign as Naples most desirable address with its recent crowning as Community of the Year for an unprecedented 10th time. The premier golf and beach club community claimed the coveted recognition at the recent Sand Dollar Awards gala presented by the Collier Building Industry Association. As Community of the Year in the $1 million and over category, the award recognizes Mediterras have-it-all luxury lifestyle of resort-rivaling amenities, award-winning homes and a beautiful setting inspired by nature and the rolling hills of the Italian countryside. There really is no other community like Mediterra. It works its magic the moment you arrive, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, which manages all new home sales and marketing for the community. Mediterra offers every possible amenity sought by the luxury homebuyer: 36 holes of championship golf, a Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico, a variety of dining options, plus activities like tennis and bocce, social clubs and events. Mediterras lifestyle and continued introduction of new amenities has repeatedly been recognized as the best in Southwest Florida and beyond. The Club at Mediterra is internationally lauded as one of the top private clubs in the world by BoardRoom magazine, and Mediterra is ranked among the 10 best communities worldwide by BestRetirementDestinations.com. Mediterra also received a 2016 Grand Aurora Award for Best Community Site Plan in the Southeastern U.S. The communitys two Tom Faziodesigned championship golf courses offer membership limited to just 450 members 225 members per 18 holes to ensure a premier golf experience. London Bay Homes is offering an exclusive opportunity for new homebuyers to purchase a golf membership at Mediterra without any need for time spent on what otherwise is approximately a one-year waiting list. For residents, Mediterras lifestyle is predicated by the perfect home, one that stirs their emotions with attention to the smallest architectural and design details and embodies their personal expression the hallmark of London Bay Homes commitment to Private Label Living. Many find their dream home ready to move in, represented in a fully furnished model home featuring stunning interiors created by Romanza Interior Design. Mediterras single-family estate and villa models foreshadow the communitys signature lifestyle, and many offer the bonus of lawn and pool maintenance included. Four single-family estate and villa model homes are currently open for viewing, including the Isabella Two-Story, a three-time Sand Dollar award winner for excellence in building, interior and pool design the latter two created by Romanza Interior Design and London Bays pool division, Acquatico. Eight additional models are in various stages of construction in several neighborhoods with two expected to open by the end of 2016 and the remainder including three new floor plans completed by spring 2017. Weve really stepped up our model building program the past several years, said Wilson. Weve had to; our models have sold prior to completion or just after for three consecutive years. London Bay sold all five of its model homes introduced during the 2015-2016 season, including the Belita, a single-family villa which also received 2016 product and interior design Sand Dollar awards. Mediterras model homes offer a sensory exploration for visitors, allowing them to walk through, touch, see and experience how a floor plan lives and relates to its surroundings along golf fairways, lakes and nature preserves. Visitors to Mediterra are immediately drawn to the lifestyle whether its playing a round of golf or dining at the Beach Club. Theres a sense of urgency to be a part of this community, which makes buying a move-in ready luxury home option even more desirable, Wilson said. In addition to the Isabella Two-Story, a four-bedroom 4,285-square-foot estate on one of the last homesites in the Serata neighborhood, models open at Mediterra include the maintenance-free Angelica and the recently completed Bettina in Cabreo. An intimate neighborhood of 39 luxury villa homes, Cabreo offers views of lakes and nature preserves. Both models feature open great room floor plans and expansive outdoor areas with all the accoutrements for alfresco living custom pools and spas, fully equipped outdoor kitchens and spaces for lounging and entertaining. With 5,300 square feet of living space, the three-bedroom, five-bath Cordoba in Cortile is Mediterras largest model. The Italian-influenced estate overlooks a lake and golf course and offers a study, catering kitchen and a second-floor billiards room. London Bay Homes is building single-family models in Cortile, the newly introduced Caminetto neighborhood and Lucarno, the latter a picturesque village adjacent to the Parterre Garden the communitys largest neighborhood park with formal gardens, fountained lake views, sitting areas, and a large reflecting pond with decorative stone frog waterspouts.

Kalea Bays first tower hits construction milestoneClubhouse also under constructionKalea 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 HarTru 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.

Prices at Allure touted as best in town for waterfront luxuryALLURE, the new 32-story condominium to be built on the Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, has been attracting a great deal of attention lately as the best-priced luxury condominium in the local market. A recent News-Press article titled Allures price is right for downtown Fort Myers, compares the high-rise with other new developments on the market noting that prices at Allure are much lower than other high-rise condos that are now under construction. Buyers at ALLURE commented in the article that With prices at Allure starting at $267,000 for a onebedroom in a deluxe condo complex with amenities, theres nothing that compares for the price. Two-bedrooms, two-and-a-half bath residences with water views are available at about $400,000. Buyer Erik Elsea also commented on the competitive preconstruction prices at ALLURE stating, This building offers all the same amenities that these developments down in Bonita Bay are offering, but at a fraction of the price.

Arts and culture abound in the River District where the cobblestonestreets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. As if that werent enough, the city also organizes regular concerts and special events including Art Walk and Music Walk that have become extremely popular among downtown residents and visitors.
