Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | matterbrothersfurniture.com Coastal SOPHISTICATION roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYMarching down Pennsylvania AvenueOn March 4, 1829, only 11 days before his 62nd birthday, newly elected and apparently still-nimble President Andrew Jackson found himself sneaking out a back window of the White House to escape the massive, liquor-laced crowd gathered for his inauguration. Or he may have left by a side door; no one is certain. He made his way to Gadsbys Hotel to spend his first night as president. The nations most preeminent public house had been thrown open to all the people that day, not just the wealthy or the elite, by the nations most populistminded president to date. His embrace came complete with whisky-spiked punch and food for all. The public wasted no time. It was their property, after all their White House, their city and streets, and now their president and likely some or all of the inaugural party preparations came from their money. They had been made to feel welcome. That would not be the case, now. Times have changed, and not simply the times or the American cultural experience, but active political philosophy. A year ago, the National Park Service effectively put all federal land off limits to Americans during the inauguration along the 1.2-mile stretch of Pennsylv ania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House, the most iconic and storied public places in America. Those include sidewalks along Pennsylv ania Avenue, Lafayette Park in front of the White House and the large ellipse behind it, Liberty Plaza and the Lincoln Memorial where Americans have protested war and unequal rights or celebrated moon landings and rock n roll the most American of places. But the National Park Service decided to have none of it, suggesting an unfortunate contemporary reality: The Jacksonian openness of the 19th century, the populist fuel in the American tank that celebrates public property and public rights now seems to burn at a much cooler, more reluctant temperature. That is, if it isnt supercharged by the challenge to authority of its defenders. In the case of the Jan. 20 inauguration of our nations 45th president, that has meant the Washington D.C.-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund. A nonprofit agency run by do-good lawyers, the Partnership insists on the right of Americans to celebrate or protest, either one, and to gather peacefully on public property without being harassed or arrested by authorities. Without its efforts in recent weeks and months, that wouldnt have happened. With more than 20 groups seeking permits to protest (or in the case of Bikers For Trump, to celebrate) Mr. Trumps election on or around Inauguration Day, the National Park Service had stopped them cold until late last week. On Thursday afternoon, with the threat of the Partnership stepping into court on Friday, the Park Service relented and agreed to permit protestors. Who they would permit was not clear at press time. This wasnt Mr. Trump stopping them, this was the National Park Service. If it was Hillary they would have stifled dissent (as well), said Carl Messineo, a founder with Mara VerheydenHilliard of the Partnership, speaking to public radio station listeners a couple of weeks ago. Its an enormous problem because there is this national groundswell: People want to articulate a vision for the future that is not Trumps. In fact, the largest protest of a newly inaugurated president in history is likely to take place on Jan. 21, outsizing even protests against Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, to date the most significant. And theyll come whether permitted on federal land or not Washington is a patchwork of federal and local property, and the local property remains open to all comers thanks in part to the Partnership, Mr. Messineo says. The womens march (estimated to include 200,00 or more by itself) has a permit to march on D.C. land, and people do have some spaces there, but they (havent been permitted to march) to the Lincoln Memorial. Nevertheless, he added, They are the force on the ground, and they will find a way and a space to express themselves. As it should be and has always been, at least since the day Andrew Jackson rode into town. The White House party had begun on the steps of the Capitol earlier in the day at his swearing in, about a mile east of his new home. There, President Jackson had appeared to deliver a speech few of the many thousands gathered could hear. A ships cable had been stretched across the portico steps to prevent celebrants from crowding too close, but they soon overcame it. Jackson had left the building from a side door and mounted a white horse, which he rode up Pennsylv ania toward the already crowded White House. It was an American moment unlike any previous, full of brawny, merry, muddybooted men who drank too much. When they couldnt get into the White House by the front door to greet their new president and drink the punch, they climbed in through the windows, breaking the china and ruining chairs. A headsup steward finally got the crowd out after Jacksons departure by moving the punch outside to the lawn. The reign of King Mob seemed triumphant, said Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, who was there. And maybe it will be again, this time. Democracy, after all, is a big, beautiful, ungainly party. May its closing bell never ring.

No one doubts this is a watershed moment in the history of American democracy. In addition to those appalled by Trumps election, I hear from readers who voted for the man. His supporters are jubilant. In a word, they want anyone who didnt vote for Trump to shut up and eat dirt. Some express their passion by shouting in capital letters. GET OVER IT. LIBERALS LOST. END OF STORY. But they dont stop there. They give multiple reasons for celebrating Trumps victory of course, it meant Hillary didnt win. Most reserve a special place in hell for her. But they also say they are joyful because Trump will obliterate the legacy of President Obama, the accused closet-Muslim whose eight years in the Oval Office brought the country to the edge of ruin. (Note to self: The U.S. economy added 178,000 jobs in November, and the unemployment rate fell to 4.6 percent, the lowest level seen since 2007.) Comments in my column about Trumps hate mongering, racism and misogyny tend to be a sore point. In their reply, most Trump supporters simply ignore or deny Trumps culpability in fomenting fear and loathing among Americans. Trumps own statements are insufficient to convict him of bigotry. Others just deflect by changing the subject entirely or point to those accusing Trump as, in fact, the real haters. Hillarys basket of deplorables is mentioned frequently as Exhibit A. Others who comment rebut Trumps imagined shortcomings, choosing instead to focus on his good qualities, most especially his machismo. They gloss over character flaws associated with the mans temperament, intellect and/or personality as perceived by others. His supporters are hypnotized by the incandescence of the radical change he promises. Their gloat burns bright with the prospect of whatever purpose of revenge they harbor. It runs the gamut, from extinguishing the cult of liberalism, to the demise of the slobbering media, eradication of Obama socialism, banishment of leftist historians, destruction of academia, the exile of milk toast Millennials, and lopping off New York and California from Americas body politic. I will give Trump supporters this: Most are passionate in their belief Trump will be good for the country. He will, they say, reverse the economic decline suffered by the poor and middle class under eight years of Obama. They trust the billionaire implicitly to fulfill all the promises he has made to resurrect America from the grave of liberalism. There will be a chicken in every pot and one in the freezer to spare. And no one is going to get away anymore with stealing his or her chickens. Trump supporters tell me he will engineer a government takeover sufficient to chop off the head of the hydraheaded beast strangling free enterprise. His corporate capitalist cabinet will run the nation like a private sector business. The military will serve as its security force. Itll be a free market at its most efficient, absent the friction of governmental oversight and regulation. Who better than Trump to squeeze public coffers to produce private gain and destroy entitlements for the undeserving? Trump will wipe out the safety net that keeps the countrys slackers afloat at their expense. The Affordable Care Act will go down in flames, dumping the 20 million Americans who have health insurance for the first time. He will lead conservatives in their fight to privatize Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. It will be the end of American socialism. And for those waving the flag of white nationalism, they tell me it just feels great to have the black guy out and the white guy in, and an American Putin as commander-in-chief. They imagine Trump as their personal angel of vengeance. They boast he will crush diversity and freedom of religion as an American ideal. Jews, Muslims, women, LGBTs and people of color will be put in their place. He will be the undisputed leader of disunion, will neuter federal government and will permanently erode the rights of federal citizenship. Civil rights are for white people. Of those excitedly anticipating the Trump presidency, one reader of this column wrote and proposed that we make a bet. He suggested we agree in one year to check in with each other and mutually assess the state of America under Trump. He predicts Trump will usher in a new era of American prosperity. I predict Trump will be the worst president in American history and put our democracy at risk. If he is right, I buy him dinner. If he is wrong hed buy mine. I thought it a civil proposal, offered in the spirit of closing the distance between us on a matter about which we profoundly disagree. But theres no satisfaction in winning a bet that Trump will be a disaster for the country. Its a zero-sum game. We all eat off the same table, no matter who hosts or buys the dinner. I say without reservation I hope I am wrong. But I thank you for asking, my fellow American. Defund the UNWeve come a long way from Daniel Patrick Moynihan excoriating the U.N.s 1975 Zionism is racism resolution in one of the finer exhibits of righteous indignation in the history of American speechifying. The Obama administration acceded to and, reportedly, assisted behind the scenes a less notorious but still noxious Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements. By the administrations lights, the action is clever it will be extremely difficult to reverse and will increase Israels international isolation. But the bipartisan outrage over a resolution that, once again, demonstrates the U.N.s hostility to our closest ally in the Middle East affords an opportunity to force an overdue crisis in the U.S.-U.N. relationship. We are the chief funder of a swollen, unaccountable U.N apparatus that has been a gross disappointment going on more than 70 years now. We came up with the idea for the United Nations. Franklin Roosevelt thought that the Four Policeman of Britain, the United States, the Soviet Union and China would keep the peace in the post-World War II world. This vision immediately foundered on the reality of power politics. The first major event in the U.N.s life after the Security Council began meeting in New York City was a threatened Soviet walkout. It turned out that states with different interests and values werent going to act as a band of righteous international enforcers. In fact, as demonstrated in Rwanda and the Balkans, when confronted by hideously predatory forces bent on mayhem and murder, U.N. peacekeepers would simply stand aside. In the decades after the U.N.s founding, the influence of Third World dictatorships grew, and so did the institutions anti-Western and anti-Israel orientation, culminating in the Zionism resolution. That vote was finally reversed in 1991, but prejudice against Israel has become one of the U.N.s core competencies as well as impenetrable bureaucracy. We pay more than anyone else to keep the U.N. in business, about 22 percent of the U.N.s regular budget. As Brett Schaefer of The Heritage Foundation notes, the U.S. is assessed more than 176 other U.N. member states combined. Its hard to even know how much the U.S. pays in total, but its probably around $8 billion a year. We should withhold some significant portion of it, and demand an end to the U.N.s institutional hostility to Israel and the implementation of reforms to increase the organizations accountability. There are individual U.N. agencies that do good work, and we can continue to support those. Realistically, though, the U.N. will always be a disappointment. The fact is that the closest thing to what FDR envisioned in the U.N. is NATO, a likeminded group of nations that has been a force for peace, order and freedom. This is why President-elect Donald Trump should embrace NATO and turn his critical eye to the U.N., where there is the genuine opportunity to, if nothing else, save the U.S. some money and rattle the cages of people taking advantage of our beneficence. Charles de Gaulle dismissively called the U.N. the thing. The thing will always stumble on, but maybe Donald Trump can teach it a lesson or two about how we truly value our ally and its nemesis, Israel. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

PROFILE IN PARADISECharting the course of Colliers Founder FundRob McNaghten retired in 2003 as vice president of real estate investments at Nationwide Insurance. It was his wife, Sue, who first became involved in The Founders Fund Inc., the nonprofit for which Rob now serves as chairman of the board of trustees. Since its founding in 1991 by the golf members of The Club Pelican Bay, The Founders Fund has awarded more than $3.4 million to more than 600 Collier County students. Each spring, more than two dozen high school graduates earn scholarships that are renewable on an annual basis; the fund currently supports 110 students. The fund has just one part-time employee, with the 16 trustees doing the vast majority of work. Mostly snowbirds, they want to give back while in their seasonal community and do so by organizing a biennial golf tournament and banquet for which they procure auction items and solicit sponsor participation. The trustees also personally visit local high schools to interview the 70-80 students each year who apply for scholarships; they then select the recipients. The Founders Fund has an endowment of almost $650,000 that is administered by the Community Foundation of Collier County. The goal is for the fund to reach $1 million within the next couple of years and to have the returns support additional scholarships.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYchurch and a large cemetery, Washington Memorial, the grass dotted with tiny pale violet flowers and uneven rows of tombstones. Down the street and around the corner on a main street that has seen better days sits Thomas Diner, known for having the best breakfast in town, and for its burgers and wings. Founded in 2002 by the late Louis Cookie McKenzie, the family business grew out of the need for chicken wings and fries during a Brown Sugar Festival, survived the Great Recession, and continues to endure. Business has been spotty, and recently the family has been grieving. Mr. McKenzies son Thomas Horace, for whom the diner was named, lost his sister late last year to leukemia. Thomas Horace, 36, a big, soft-spoken man, developed a love for foie gras when he attended Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm, although you wont find the dish here due to the need to keep prices as low as possible for customers. Now he helps his mom and family run the kitchen and hopes to carry on his fathers legacy. He wondered if Food Network star Guy Fieri, known for appreciating comfort food in out-of-the-way locales, might discover the diner one day. I love food, said Mr. Horace with a golden grin. I love to eat. F YOU ASK SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN HARlem where shes from, she will likely tell you Clewiston, and the two are often spoken of as one and the same. Thats how Mr. Horace thinks of it, but friends disagree. I always thought it was one, but I was in a group and everybody was talking about it, he said. Apparently, I was wrong. For people who have never heard of Harlem, their most common reference point is the traditionally black Manhattan neighborhood, which is about as apt as comparing Staten Island to Sanibel Island. It is not officially a city or part of one, although Harlem and Clewiston residents have developed close ties since the school system was integrated in the late 1960s. Mr. Horaces mom, Mary McKenzie, a special ed teacher who retired last year, recalled her high school years when students from the old Harlem Academy were bused uptown to Clewiston. And guess what? she said. Soon as we got integrated, my first boyfriend was a white boy. She had escaped with family to Florida in 1960 at age 9 after Klansmen tried to burn their house down. Officially, Harlem is a U.S. Census designated place under Hendry Countys jurisdiction, about one square mile that is home to 2,350 residents with neat lawns, abundant churches and families of all ages. Along a main street, Harlem Academy Avenue, there are a few restaurants, stores and bars, residences and boarded-up buildings. Down the street sits Harlem Academy, now a day care and pre-school. Nearby are a public library, swimming pool, full-size basketball gymnasium and a small park with a baseball field. The community is invisible to drivers passing by on U.S. 27, set back a mile from the main road and hemmed in by railroad tracks and the Clewiston Golf Course to the north, a half-mile buffer between Harlem and uptown. To the east, the smokestacks of U.S. Sugar Corp.s goliath mill and refinery are its most visible landmarks, along with the vast sugar cane fields that abut its southwestern borders. The community sits at the edge of what is now some 440,000 acres of cane in the Everglades Agricultural Area farmed by U.S.S.C., Florida Crystals and others. Clewiston, Harlem and towns near the southern shore of Lake Okeechobee were borne into existence starting in the 1920s as sugar farming and Americas growing sweet tooth began to outpace other forms of agriculture. Like parts of cities across the U.S., Harlem remains in many ways a segregated black community, its residents isolated by history, geography and economic challenges. U.S. Census figures show that close to 38 percent of residents here live in poverty, more than twice that of Clewiston and Florida as a whole. The median household income, less than $20,000, is more than twice as low. For people who grew up here, especially those who recall Harlems postWorld War II heyday, it is a distinct community with an identity all its own. It originated in the 1920s as a camp for black sugar workers, and many homes here were built by the hands of its own residents under a federal grant program in the 1970s. Generations of children have grown up here. Now there are more than 700 residents age 18 or younger living here, HARLEMFrom page 1 1920s 1930s 1940s 1950s 1960s 1970s 1980s 1990s 2000s 2010sHarlem Timeline 1928A black settlement on Lake Okeechobee is moved to create what is now Harlem outside the southwest corner of Clewiston.Oct. 29, 1929-1939The Great Depression. 1932 Perhaps Harlems most in uential pioneer, A.A.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2017 NEWS A9many of them elementary school age. At days end, along streets that end where sugar cane fields begin, neighborhood kids came out to play, a few of them rolling down the road on hoverboards. One buzzed along in a 4-wheeler. The trajectory for many, as they get older, includes plans to leave town and find jobs elsewhere. Thats the case for two young friends, resident Dura Hunter and Darius Gilkes, who was visiting over the holidays. They had fun growing up here riding dirt bikes or playing sports, and have family roots that may bring them back on Christmas, but both plan to answer the call of life outside Clewiston and Harlem. Theres nothing here, explained Mr. Hunter, an 18-year-old senior at Clewiston High School and a linebacker for the Tigers who plans to play college football. Other residents echoed that assessment, including Eddie Redd. Were a lonely world out here, he said over coffee at the diner one morning. There are too few youth programs, good jobs or cultural opportunities for young people in Harlem, said Mr. Redd, who is 51. To help, he started the Harlem Young Mens Club, organizing events at the library, basketball games and car washes. He coaches them on how to prepare for interviews and tries to ensure they get to church on Sunday. When he was growing up, Harlem had a movie theater where he watched karate and gangster films. Older residents recall that in the 1960s and 0s, as the sugar industry grew, Harlem had a red light, theater, gas station, laundromat, post office and other shops and amenities that have disappeared. This town used to be bangin, you know? said Ms. McKenzie, who is 65. But it just went down. A lot of the good people passed away, the business evaporated. With weak job prospects, Mr. Redd sees a cycle in which some kids grow up and drift into crime and drug dealing to support children of their own. Some hang out in the afternoons or evenings along parts of Harlem Academy Avenue, where people can get a drink or some drugs. Whatever ruffles your feathers, Mr. Redd said. Whatever you like to do, this is where you get it. A few become real thugs. You dont mess with that kid, Mr. Redd said. That kid is hungry. That kidll eat you up. IRST AND ALWAYS, THERE IS THEsugar company. United States Sugar Corp. towers over Clewiston and Harlem literally and economically. Residents have mixed feelings about the company. It has provided jobs and dipped into its hefty pocketbook to fund civic projects throughout Harlem history, including churches, a civic center, low-income apartments and a pool, but as such its power looms large. We call it a big plantation, said one resident who declined to give his name. Thats what it is. They control everything. Mr. Redd said its hard to speak badly of a company that has provided so much assistance; at the same time, he feels they could do more. Without U.S. Sugar I think this town couldnt function, he said. But they dont do nearly enough to help people in this community.The Clewiston News reported that blacks started moving to the area in 80 27 98Lake Okeechobee Harlem N La ke O k eec h obee 27 41 75Naples Fort Myers Miami West Palm Beach DETAIL 10 MILES Clewiston Moore Haven Belle Glade Pahokee MIKE KINIRY / SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThomas Horace and his sister cook breakfast at Thomas Diner.COURTESY OF THE HARLEM LIBRARY ARCHIVES Starting in the 1920s in South Florida, black laborers and their families lived in sugar company-owned camps such as Harlem in small railroad car-style shacks.

By the middle of the decade, sugar had become the predominant crop among other forms of agriculture, and huge swaths of the Everglades were being drained to plant cane. In 1928, black laborers moved to an area that eventually became Harlem. Many lived in what was then called Townsite, housed in railroad-car style barracks, which became part of the growing community. In 1929, the Southern Sugar Company opened its first mill. In 1931, as the Great Depression started to eviscerate the economy, Southern Sugar was bought out by U.S.S.C. Seasonal migrant workers from Jamaica started arriving in the early 1940s to work in the growing industry. They also came from the Bahamas and elsewhere, residents recalled. Although the sugar-owned housing had been made for single workers with no closets, small front porches, and community showers and bathrooms, they soon became family homes. The parents of Lovvorn Dixon, a longtime middle school teacher who retired in 2015, were among Harlems early residents. Born and raised here in the s and s, she earned a degree from Florida A&M University and came back to be a teacher. As a girl, her family of seven siblings shared a three-room shack. Her dad was a barber, and worked for the city of Clewiston, and her mom was a dietician at the hospital. Though they had little money, they didnt consider themselves poor. They had a pasture with cows, grew their own food, and were raised in the church. We had a lot of love in that little shack, she said. Later, in the early 1970s, a federal self-help housing program improved cramped living situations, although residents still had to share community bathroom facilities. It provided funding that allowed the people of Harlem to build their own single-family homes, where many still live today. Until the ninth grade, Ms. Dixon attended Harlem Academy, an elementary and high school that at one time had 580 students. A year later, schools were integrated. She and her classmates were bused uptown to Clewiston High School, where she graduated in 1971. Some of us did ask, why cant they come out here to our school? Ms. Dixon said. But that was the law and we had to abide by the law. After integration, the old Harlem Academy was shut down in 1970, a major loss to the community. Its principal, Amos Alvoid Thomas, later became assistant superintendent in Hendry County. Considered one of Harlems most influential pioneer residents, A.A. Thomas and his wife, Lois, arrived in 1932. A Florida native who attended school at Florida A& M, he later earned a masters degree from Columbia University in New York, located on the edge of Manhattans Harlem. The Clewiston News reported that he was largely responsible for building up the Academy, and spent 46 years serving families in the school system. After the school closed he started a day-care center. He was a strict but beloved principal. Professor Thomas, as he was called, didnt go easy on students who failed to return to campus from lunch by 1 p.m. One former student recalled, If you wasnt on that campus hed be sitting there to put that paddle on you.

Holocaust scholar brings fifth annual lecture series to Hodges U.Elliott Katz, a lecturer and authority on 20th century European history with the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, presents his fifth annual lecture series at Hodges University beginning later this month. The 2017 series starts with a lecture about the Nazi Olympics. In Razzle Dazzle Em and Theyll Beg You for More, Mr. Katz will discuss Avery Brundage and the American Olympic committees role in assuring that Adolf Hitlers Nazi Germany would host the 1936 Olympic Games. He also takes a hard look at the American boycott movement and the role of Jewish and black athletes in the controversial games. The program takes place from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, Jan. 26, at Hodges U., 2647 Professional Way in Naples. The series continues as follows (unless otherwise noted, lectures are from 10 a.m. to noon): Thursday, Feb. 9: Injustice at Nuremberg: Or How to Get Away with Murder A critical review of who was tried and why, the sentences imposed and the political dominance of the proceedings of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. Mr. Katz will bring to light the American interference in the post-trial actions in his discussion of the final legacy of the trials and why, in retrospect, most historians questions their validity.Traveling exhibit stops at Holocaust museum SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYJan Karskis experience in World War II spanned the gamut from reserve officer and junior diplomat to Polish Underground courier to the Polish government in exile in London. A traveling exhibit detailing his extraordinary life opened recently at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. The World Knew: Jan Karskis Mission for Humanity will remain on display at the center in Naples through May 14. In 1940, as a member of the Polish Underground, Mr. Karski was betrayed. Arrested and tortured by the Gestapo, he tried to commit suicide to prevent providing information on his groups activities. Miraculously, he was able to escape with the help of the Polish Resistance. In 1942, he was smuggled into the Warsaw Ghetto under disguise in order to investigate conditions here. He also went undercover in a transit camp, where he saw Nazi mistreatment and killing of Jews. Mr. Karskis courage, knowledge of four languages, photographic memory and diplomatic skills made him a key underground operative. In 1942-43, he alerted British Foreign Minister Anthony Eden, President Theodore Roosevelt and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter to the presence of Jewish ghettos and transit camps and the atrocities being committed against Jews in Poland and Eastern Europe. His reports were met with disbelief, however, and the Allies provided no help to relieve the plight of the Jews. But Mr. Karski didnt give up trying, because he knew firsthand the dangers Jews were in during the war. In 1944, he wrote Story of a Secret State: My Report to the World, documenting his work in the Polish Underground and providing further evidence to convince the Allied powers of the need to act against the Nazi atrocities that went far beyond the normal acts of war. After the war, he settled in the U.S. He became a citizen and worked as a professor at Georgetown University for 40 years. He married Pola Nirenska, a dancer who was a Holocaust survivor. He was known as an incredibly humble person. Despite all his courageous acts and diplomatic efforts, he once told colleagues during a talk that he felt he didnt do enough to help the Jews and occupied Poland. He died in 2000, and in 2012 was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.About the exhibitThe tour of The World Knew: Jan Karskis Mission for Humanity traveling exhibition is organized by the Jan Karski Educational Foundation. The exhibit was created by the Polish History Museum with a major support from the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Additional funding was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.About the museumThe mission of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is to teach the lessons of the Holocaust to inspire action against bigotry, hatred and violence.

Naples Velo Bicycle Club has a 30-second video promoting cycling safety in Collier County. The video can be downloaded easily for sharing on social media and with family, neighbors, friends and colleagues. On the roadways throughout Collier County, cyclists ride to the right in a traffic lane or a narrow 4-foot-wide bike lane. The state of Florida requires drivers to stay 3 feet away from bicyclists when passing them. Naples Velo wants to remind everyone to be respectful of each other while using the roadways, Don Rupprecht, Naples Velo president, says. Whether cycling or driving, we want to help bring safety awareness to our roadways; this was our motivation in creating the video. We want to bring awareness to the 3-foot rule. According to the U.S. Census Bureau and the Outdoor Foundation, more than 63,000 residents and visitors cycle in Collier County. Two years ago, several Naples Velo members were seriously injured in accidents involving motorists; one accident resulted in the death of a child bicyclist, and another in the death of a commuter bicyclist. The series of accidents led the leadership of Naples Velo to initiate change and enhance the cycling awareness and safety in Southwest Florida. A member of the League of American Bicyclists, the nonprofit Naples Velo Bicycle Club promotes cycling activities, develops and conducts educational programs on cycling safety and skills, enhances cycling awareness through advertising and community events and supports the enactment of cycling safety laws, amateur cycling racing and other charitable organizations that share its mission. The club hopes bicyclists download the new video and share it on social media as well as with colleagues and neighbors. Go to www.vimeo.com/188564813.

Step out for a free program about how to prevent fallsStep Smart Collier invites the public to a free fall-prevention and safety program Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 18, at Headquarters Library, 2385 Orange Blossom Drive. Two sessions are offered starting at 1:15 and 2:30 p.m. All are welcome. Keith Dameron, CEO of Step Smart Collier, and health analyst Mark Tesoro of LeeHealth will address the three ways in which risks of falling can be reduced: adapting the physical environment, managing prescription drug use and improving balance through simple exercise regimes. The program will include displays and information from companies, hospital staff, hardware representatives and professional advisers. Free computerized balance testing, safe medication management information (bring a list of your medications), and information about adaptive equipment, exercise programs and fall prevention measures for home and outdoor safety will be available. Falls are the leading cause of injury and death for seniors. Every 15 seconds somewhere in the United States, an older adult is seen in an emergency medical facility for a fall related injury. Falls can result in hip fractures, broken bones and head injuries. Senior Floridians account for more than 150,000 hospital treated injuries from falls with medical charges exceeding $3 billion. The average death rate of seniors who have fallen in Collier County is 55 percent higher than the average for the state of Florida. The mission of Step Smart Collier is to educate seniors on how to prevent falls. The organization is an all-volunteer partnership of concerned citizens, health-related nonprofits and businesses assembled in 2015 to increase seniors awareness of the fall risks they face and how to mitigate those risks.

Schulze foundation grants $100,000 to The Immokalee Foundation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMore Immokalee youth will gain literacy skills and receive career guidance through The Immokalee Foundation, thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. The funds will benef it students of various ages enrolled in TIFs Immokalee Readers program and its career development programs. Immokalee Readers is an afterschool program designed to target the lowest-performing student readers by complementing the reading instruction they receive during the regular school day. The program, which matches high school-age tutors with the younger children, currently involves 545 students enrolled in Immokalees five elementary schools and 110 trained high school students. TIFs career development programs expose students to their choices for a future in college, the military or vocational school and introduce them to different aspects of the working world while stressing foundational skills such as effective communication and leadership techniques. Career development education through TIF begins as early as middle school and continues through high school. Richard Dick Schulze, chairman emeritus of Best Buy Co. Inc., started the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation in 2004. In addition to education, RMSFF supports human and social services efforts as well as programs and students studying health and medicine. While most of its grants support nonprofits that serve workingand middleclass families in Collier and Lee counties as well as seven Minnesota counties, some funding fuels programs that are national in scope. Mr. Schulze was born and raised in St. Paul, Minn., and now lives in Naples with his wife, Maureen. The grant process is administered locally through a Naples office.

(Police may come arrest the perpetrators, but the producers are not responsible for intervening.) The show (Game2: Winter) will be telecast live, around the clock, beginning July 2017 via 2,000 cameras placed in a large area full of bears and treacherous forest. Producers told The Siberian Times in December that 60 prospects had already signed up for the last-person-standing prize: the equivalent of $1.6 million. (Bonus: The production companys advertising lists the dangerous behaviors they allow, including fighting, and smoking.Roundup from the worlds press With car-camel collisions increasing in Irans two southern provinces, an Iranian government ministry is in the process of issuing identification cards to each camel, supposedly leading to outerwear license plates on each of the animals. Authorities told the Islamic Republic News Agency the registration numbers are needed if an accident victim needs to report the camel or to help trace smugglers. (No actual U.S.-style license plates on camels have yet made the worlds news photographs.) Martin Shkreli became the Wall Street bad boy in 2015 when his company Turing Pharmaceuticals bought the right to market the lifesaving drug Daraprim and promptly raised its typical price of $18 a pill to $750, but in November, high schoolers in the chemistry lab at Sydney Grammar in Australia created a molecular knockoff of Daraprim for about $2 a tablet. Their sample of pyrimethamine (Daraprims chemical name) was judged authentic by a University of Sydney chemistry professor. Daraprim, among other uses, fights deadly attacks on immune systems, such as for HIV patients. Gazing upon nature as nature calls: To serve restroom users in a public park in Chinas Hunan Provinces picturesque Shiyan Lake area, architects gave users in toilet cubicles a view of the forest through ceiling-to-floor windows. To discourage sightseers who believe the better view is not from the cubicles but into them, the bottom portion, up to the level of the toilet, is frosted though that stratagem probably blurs only a pair of legs, seated. (CNN reported in October that China has at least one other such restroom, in Guilin province, viewing distant mountains.) Oops! Organizers of the Christmas Day caroling program at the Nelum Pokuna theater in Colombo, Sri Lanka, drawing thousands of devout celebrants, were apparently confused by one song title and innocently included it in the book for the carolers. (No, it wasnt Inna Gadda Da Vida from a famous Simpsons episode.) It was Hail Mary by the late rapper Tupac Shakur likely resulting in the very first appearance of certain words in any Christmas service publication anywhere. The Dubai-based Gulf News reported in November that 900 Kuwaiti government workers had their pay frozen during the current investigation into no-shows, including one man on the payroll (unidentified) who reportedly had not actually worked in 10 years. Another, who had been living abroad for 18 months while drawing his Kuwaiti pay, was reduced to half-pay, but insisted he had asked several times for assignments but was told nothing was available. (Gulf News reported that the 10-year man is appealing the freeze.)The passing parade(1) A poll revealed in December (sponsored by University of Graz and Austria Press Agency) that Austrias word of the year for 2016 was a 52-letter word beginning bundespraesident and referring to the postponement of the runoff election for president in 2016.

Olde Cypress offers golf, social memberships and more to residents and non-residents.Limited number of non-resident memberships available. Most walkers sign up before the day of the event, form teams and raise funds. The two-mile walk is non-competitive, family and pet-friendly. Its also the biggest fundraiser of the year for the food bank, which hopes to top last years total of $305,000. The Walk supports emergency food programs that feed children, families, seniors and others in need through the food banks network of more than 150 partner agencies. These agencies operate food pantries, soup kitchens and other feeding programs that serve 28,000 Southwest Floridians each week. All funds from the Walk will stay in the Southwest Florida area. Last year, the Walk raised enough to provide $1.83 million worth of food to those who often dont know where their next meal is coming from in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties. Miromar Outlets is an in-kind sponsor for the Walk. Mr. Staner provides the venue at no cost, and also helps promote the event through advertising and social media. It saves us money, said Marta Hodson, the food banks community relations manager and Hunger Walk coordinator. We dont have to pay for an event location. Its private property, so we dont have to pay for street closures. We have built-in security on site. The Walk route is on paved surfaces around the mall area, and there are lots of water fountains and restrooms, so the food bank doesnt have to rent Port-O-Lets, she said. Not only that, the mall is a convenient location within easy access off I-75, and there is plenty of free parking, she said. The staff at Miromar is excellent to work with and very accommodating in providing what we need to make sure the event goes smoothly. The mall has always wanted to help with community events since it opened in 1999, Mr. Staner said. We want to pay back to the community, residents, businesses. People shouldnt have to go hungry, Mr. Staner said. Having food on the table is one of the most important things in peoples lives. Ms. Hodson said the food bank appreciates the malls partnership in fighting hunger. Were grateful because it means that more money we raise actually goes to provide food to the community, and not expenses for the walk. That makes our net number larger. Miromar Outlets even fields a team in the Walk, including employees and corporate staff In the last two years alone, the team raised about $5,500. Mr. Staner also goes around the office collecting money before the Walk, and sends emails out to social media contacts. Hosting the Walk is also a plus because it provides exposure, Staner said. Customers walking along the Walk route may see a store they hadnt seen before, and come back to check it out, he said. It gives us an opportunity to showcase Miromar Outlets. The Hunger Walk isnt the only nonprofit fundraiser the mall hosts. Other events includes the ALS walk (also called Lou Gehrigs disease), Making Strides for Breast Cancer, and others. Presenting sponsors for the Walk are Garden Street Companies and the Lee County Sheriffs Office. The major sponsor is the Copperleaf Charitable Foundation. Gold sponsors are CenturyLink, Florida Gulf Coast University, McDonalds and Lipman.About the Harry Chapin Food BankThe Harry Chapin Food Bank, an affiliate of Feeding America, is the leading hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida. The food bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to families and others in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties, providing food to about 28,000 people a week. For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2015-16, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 20.6 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $34 million, is the equivalent of 17 million meals for people in need. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is recognized as a four-star organization by Charity Navigator, the national nonprofit watchdog organization. The food bank is also a United Way partner agency.

That might seem a little odd for a class thats built on off-road appearance, but the Bimmers irreverence has always made it a true standout in the luxury segment. So as the world around the X5 evolves for more seats, hybrid drivetrains and other updates, it might be good for BMW to remember what got them noticed in the first place. The X5s shape has not changed much since the original came along nearly two decades ago. Flared wheel arches announce that its more sports car than SUV, and the rear includes the inward Hofmeister Kink styling touch that gives BMWs sedans a strong presence. But now in its third generation, the X5 has its most handsome and aggressive face yet. Theres even some function behind the form with design elements like the two-piece tailgate. Its more expensive to produce than a single-piece unit, but those who picnic off the rear hatch appreciate the small overhanging bench that keeps legs from touching the dirty bumper. Inside, the driver gets a setup familiar to anyone who has driven BMWs in the last few years. In a crossover like the X5, sharing a layout with sporty sedans makes the atmosphere one of the most performance-oriented in its class. For passengers, the space is good for a midsize crossover, and even the rear seats can be adjusted for a more individualstyle comfort. But there is an option that messes with this strong execution. A couple of weeks ago, this column focused on the rise of the three-row midsize crossover. Luxury carmakers were mostly dismissed because they would rather provide more passenger space to five occupants than squeeze in a third row. The X5 is one of the few exceptions. For $1,700, BMW will add two more seats and an air ride rear suspension to compensate for the expected extra weight. The X5 is about as long as the Mercedes GLE and Lincoln MKX (both of which are two-row exclusives). The room in BMWs third-row is exceptionally tight, something the sporty rear roofline doesnt help. And shoehorning these seats into the rear can also eat into the second-rows limited space. Really, the seven-passenger option feels less functional and more like an acknowledgement that the X5 is the largest crossover BMW offers. Other luxury brands (like Mercedes and Lincoln) have full-size vehicles to handle three-row duty. Well likely see a larger X7 in the next couple of years, so big family BMW fans should wait until then. In fact, the X5 has never been built for ultimate space efficiency. This crossover was built specifically to reinforce the companys Ultimate Driving Machine attitude. Big tires, multi-link rear suspension and a rear-wheel drive bias in the optional xDrive all-wheel drive mean the X5 has to stash more components under the rear floor than a front-wheel drive competitor. And losing out on a little rear cargo room makes a whole lot of difference on the road. With the adjustable suspension setting in Sport mode, the X5 handles like a true BMW. With plenty of grip, its confident on corners. The variable speed sensitive steering has a sports car-like feel with a heavier motion than other luxury machine, but at the same time in never seems daunting. The $56K base models turbocharged six-cylinder has more than enough power to sustain the X5s performance image, and the available turbocharged V8 is a true sports car in disguise. The only powerplant that seems out of place is the eDrive (a $5,700 option). The hybrid electric system is so focused on regenerating power for the battery that it creates a drag the moment the driver lifts off the accelerator. Its exceptionally efficient, but it also creates a backand-forth motion that could make some passengers carsick. Instead, stick to the basics with this one. The BMW X5 created the niche for a sporty offering in the premium crossover marketplace. Today its being adapted for more people, better efficiency and other duties that go against its performance heart. But those who see through the clutter of these new options will re-discover the driver-oriented crossover theyve never stopped loving. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Watch out for traffic copsHeres where CCSO deputies will be on traffic detail the week of Jan. 16-20: Monday, Jan. 16 Bayshore Drive and Botanical Place Circle: Speeding Vanderbilt Beach and GoodletteFrank roads: Red-light running Immokalee Road and Randall Boulevard: Speeding Tuesday, Jan. 17 Golden Gate Parkway and 44th Street SW: Aggressive driving Wilson Boulevard: Speeding Davis Boulevard and Market Street: Aggressive driving Wednesday, Jan. 18 Orange Blossom Drive and Livingston Road: Aggressive driving Coronado Parkway and 24th Avenue SW: Speeding Santa Barbara Boulevard at Calusa Park Elementary: Aggressive driving Thursday, Jan. 19 Pine Ridge and Airport-Pulling roads: Aggressive driving 111th Avenue North at Naples Park Elementary: Speeding Livingston and Immokalee roads: Aggressive driving Friday, Jan. 20 Palm Drive and U.S. 41 East: Redlight running Vanderbilt Beach Road and U.S 41 North: Speeding Collier Boulevard and Rattlesnake Hammock Road: Speeding Tune up your driving skills with AARPAARP offers classes to help older drivers learn about new traffic laws, refresh their driving skills and reduce their risk for tickets and accidents.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGLooking ahead for what to expect in the new yearTodays potentially ambiguous national change in direction makes my forecast for 2017 somewhat cloudy and cold, even though we live in sunny and warm Southwest Florida. But here goes: Coverage and access are uncertain. While we now have the least number (9.4 percent) of uninsured ever in America, no one is certain what will become of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. The American Hospital Association as well as many other credible and responsible health-care organizations are seeking gradual change, correcting faults while preserving the good features of the law. Im cautiously optimistic we can control rhetoric, lower cost, improve quality and broaden access. Migrating from volume to value will persist. Medicare, the insurance most prominent in Southwest Florida, has mandated bundled payments for hip and knee replacements for about 23 percent of the states hospitals, including NCH. Plans are to move heart attacks, congestive heart failure, bypass surgery and pneumonia into this onefixed-payment structure. Smooth transitions for patients from education prior to an elective procedure, throughout the hospitalization and now, most importantly, after discharge either to home or a skilled care facility will be a top priority. Everyone will be incentivized to do the right amount of the right care at the right time. Shifting in-patient care to the out-patient setting, consequently decreasing the number of hospitalizations, will ultimately improve outc omes while simultaneously decreasing costs. Although we might see modest resistance and delays from individuals or institutions with legacy mindsets, change is inevitable. The most venerable will be the most vulnerable. More physicians will combine with health-care systems. Our NCH SEE WEISS, A25 Revised guidelines issued for ways to reduce risk of peanut allergy NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHPeanut allergy is a growing health problem for which no treatment or cure exists. People living with peanut allergy, and their caregivers, must be vigilant about the foods they eat and the environments they enter to avoid allergic reactions that can be severe and even life threatening. The allergy tends to develop in childhood and persist through adulthood. However, recent scientific research has demonstrated that introducing peanutcontaining foods into the diet during infancy can prevent the development of peanut allergy. A panel sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, has issued new clinical guidelines to aid health-care providers in early introduction of peanut-containing foods to infants to prevent the development of peanut allergy. The addendum to guidelines that were issued in 2010 provides three separate general rules for infants at various levels of risk for developing peanut allergy and is targeted to a wide variety of health-care providers, including pediatricians and family practice physicians. Living with peanut allergy requires constant vigilance. Preventing the development of peanut allergy will improve and save lives and lower health care costs, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIAID, said. We expect that widespread implementation of these guidelines by health-care providers will prevent the development of peanut allergy in many susceptible children and ultimately reduce the prevalence of peanut allergy in the United States. Addendum guideline No. 1 focuses on infants deemed at high risk of developing peanut allergy because they already have severe eczema, egg allergy or both. The expert panel recommends that these infants have peanut-containing foods introduced into their diets as early as 4 to 6 months of age to reduce the risk of developing peanut allergy. Parents and caregivers should check with their infants health-care provider before feeding the infant peanut-containing foods. The health-care provider may choose to perform an allergy blood test or send the infant to a specialist for other tests, such as a skin prick test or an oral food challenge. The results of these tests will help decide if and how peanut-containing foods should be safely introduced into the infants diet. Guideline No. 2 suggests that infants with mild or moderate eczema should have peanut-containing foods introduced into their diets around 6 months of age. And guideline No. 3 suggests that infants without eczema or any food allergy have peanut-containing foods freely introduced into their diets. In all cases, infants should start other solid foods before they are introduced to peanut-containing foods. Clinical trial results reported in February 2015 showed that regular peanut consumption begun in infancy and continued until 5 years of age led to an 81 percent reduction in development of peanut allergy in infants deemed at high risk because they already had severe eczema, egg allergy or both. This finding came from the landmark, NIAIDfunded Learning Early About Peanut Allergy study, a randomized clinical trial involving more than 600 infants. Dr. Daniel Rotrosen, director of NIAIDs division of allergy, immunology and transplantation, said the LEAP study clearly showed that introduction of peanut early in life significantly lowered the risk of developing peanut allergy by age 5. The magnitude of the benefit and the scientific strength of the study raised the need to operationalize these findings by developing clinical recommendations focused on peanut allergy prevention, he added. In 2015, NIAID established a coordinating committee representing 26 professional organizations, advocacy groups and federal agencies to oversee development of the addendum guidelines to specifically address the prevention of peanut allergy. The coordinating committee convened a 26-member expert panel comprising specialists from a variety of relevant clinical, scientific and public health areas. The panelists, chaired by Dr. Joshua Boyce, professor of medicine and pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, used a literature review of food allergy prevention research and their own expert opinions to prepare draft guidelines. The draft guidelines were available on the NIAID website for public comment from March 4 to April 18, 2016. The expert panel and coordinating committee reviewed the 104 comments received and then developed the final addendum guidelines. The new guidelines appeared Jan. 5 in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and will be co-published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology; Journal of Pediatric Nursing; Pediatric Dermatology; World Allergy Organization Journal; and Allergy, Asthma, and Clinical Immunology.

With 12 internal medicine residents coming for a three-year training program, Im optimistic we will be growing our own internists. As much as I personally enjoyed the traditional private practice model for 23 years, starting or continuing with a solo or small group private practice will become even more daunting due to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. Basic fee-for-service reimbursement amounts from Medicare will be frozen starting 2019. Traditionally, commercial insurers follow Medicares lead. In Southwest Florida, prevention will continue to gain momentum. The Blue Zones Project will expand to the Immokalee region, now having had excellent success in the Naples and Bonita/ Estero areas. Eighty percent of our illnesses are self-induced. Focusing on prevention helps everyone: the individual, who feels better; the community, which is more productive; and the nation, which spends fewer resources on repairing its citizens. At NCH, learning best practices from Mayo and our 46 Mayo affiliates will grow. Since we became a member of the Mayor Care Network 4 years ago, 58 of our physicians and administrators have gone through the Mayo leadership course. Little by little, we are assimilating the world-class ethos of Mayo clinic. The Mayo School of Medicine is also the academic sponsor of our internal medicine residency program. Also, NCHs facile access to consultation with Mayos clinicians will continue to help our care providers and patients in many good ways. Locally, health and health care are important aspects of the great climate we appreciate. Despite the changes around us, Im still optimistic. Please watch the forecast as we continue to help everyone in our community live longer, happier and healthier lives.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS PET TALESPup searchBuying a puppy calls for research ability, interviewing skills and patience BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationBuying a puppy seems like a simple process. Puppies are available from private individuals, pet stores, shelters and online sellers. But where you get your puppy can determine whether you have a good experience or a bad one. A study published in the May 15, 2013, issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association found that puppies obtained from pet stores were significantly more aggressive and fearful than those obtained from noncommercial breeders and were more likely to develop separation anxiety. Buying a puppy from an online seller is also risky. Internet scams abound. French bulldog breeder Carol Gravestock in Durham, Ontario, Canada, recently received a phone call from a family conned by an unscrupulous online puppy seller. The sophisticated setup referred the buyers to the website of an existing breeder and used photos of a real, available puppy from that breeders website. They gave the buyers a cellphone number to call, claiming to be out of the country and unable to answer the phone at their home. The buyers sent a deposit and transport fee, and then received a call saying the seller needed more money for shipping fees. At that point, Gravestock says, the buyers realized something was wrong. They contacted the airline no reservation. They finally contacted the real breeder associated with the website, who had no idea what they were talking about. The funds are gone, the actual puppy is not available, the family is devastated and feeling stupid. This type of scam and others occurs in every breed, not just French bulldogs. Sometimes the dogs are touted as being from rescues or shelters. To protect yourself, avoid buying a puppy sight unseen from online sellers. Be wary if youre told that the person is out of the country and available only by cellphone or email. Google it, Gravestock says. Nine times out of 10, that phone number or email address will come up across multiple sites, sometimes with warnings attached.Other red flags include puppies offered for unusually low prices or sellers who ask you to wire money or send it by Western Union.Health is another consideration. No matter what youve been told, purebred, cross-bred (hybrid) and mixed-breed dogs can all fall prey to genetic diseases. Both of a puppys parents should be at least 2 years old and free of hereditary health problems such as hip dysplasia, heart conditions, deafness or eye disease. Reputable breeders will tell you upfront about possible health problems in the breed and what theyve done to reduce the risk.Confirm that a pups sire (father) and dam (mother) have appropriate health certifications by looking them up on the website of the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (offa.org) or the Canine Health Information Center (caninehealthinfo.org).Meeting a puppys parents, or at least the mother, is a plus. When you purchase a puppy sight unseen, its impossible to know what the parents are like or whether the pup was raised in a home environment with plenty of human attention and socialization to normal life experiences. But if the parents have nice temperaments and arent shy or aggressive, its likely that your new puppy will share those positive traits. When you want a specific type of dog, seeking a knowledgeable breeder and meeting his or her dogs in person is the best way to find a puppy. Benefits include early housetraining and socialization of pups and up-to-date health clearances on the parents. Finding the right puppy from the right breeder doesnt offer instant gratification, but its a safer, smarter way to go. Just remember that good things come to those who wait.

To balance out all the celebrity deaths of 2016, we were happy to talk about the four holiday engagements of various friends, the birth of another friends first grandchild, and some juicy gossip that shall remain back at the bar (one of the best cases for sharing secrets with moi is that I rarely remember any of it within a day or two sometimes, shortterm memory loss can be an advantage). My friend also mentioned that shes giving up alcohol in an effort to lose a few unwanted pounds. Oh my God, I exclaimed taking a sip of my dirty martini, SAME here! She gestured to her almost finished cocktail, I mean, after this one, obviously. I took my last sip as the waiter approached to ask us if we wanted another round, Sure! we said in unison. Dry January is an actual thing. It started in the United Kingdom by the nonprofit Alcohol Concern in 2014 and has since carried over here to the states. But, really, its nothing new its just that now, abstaining from alcohol for at least the first 30 days of the New Year has a name. The month of December is a biggie when it comes to spirited beverages from holiday party punch to chocolate peppermint cocktails to bubbly galore the parties are sparkly and so are the beverages. So, its understandable why many of us are ready to detox, give our overworked livers a break, cut out the booze calories, and jump on the Dry January bandwagon. Im just wondering if it still counts if you start Dry January on, say, Jan. 4? In other words, something tells me that my Dry January is going to be a little damp. But, Im not alone in disappointing myself in January. Ive talked to bunches of friends who promised to give something up or start something up on Jan. 1 and now that its over a week into the New Year, nothing is new other than the guilt they feel for failing. Some excerpts from a few recent conversations: Have you noticed that everyone who gives up dairy is skinny? Ive decided to stop eating dairy in 2017 except cheese. I really love cheese. Do you think if I give up dairy and keep eating cheese it counts as giving up dairy? Ive vowed to take a walk every single day of 2017. So far, Ive walked to the mailbox each day without fail and Im winning at this resolution I never said how FAR I would walk Im totally not texting with my ex in 2017 no texting with him at all. I did send him a message on Facebook, but thats NOT texting. I dont know every year I realize that these resolutions that absolutely MUST start on Jan. 1 doom us to fail. The first day of the year is complicated first of all, the traditional New Years Day food. A plate full of black-eyed peas with ham, cabbage and cornbread is not exactly diet-friendly. Plus, someones bound to hand you a mimosa or a Bloody Mary that day and if you can stand not to dip your nacho chip in cheese dip while watching football, then you are clearly meant for sainthood. And, trust me, I know very few of my girlfriends who didnt get at least one Happy New Year text from an ex that they didnt struggle with whether or not to respond to. As a result of New Years Day indulgence and setbacks, many of us give up on our resolutions and Dry January drowns in disappointment. I say start your resolution whenever you feel ready. Jan. 1 isnt a magic date. And if you decide to make this month Wet January, you can always make next month Dry February just be sure to walk every day, avoid dairy, and dont text your ex on Valentines Day. I dont know maybe we should set our sights on March Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week t b b p c p stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

To help small business owners and nonprofit organizations in Southwest Florida, the Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges University presents a workshop about developing a data breach response plan from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Jan 27, at the universitys Naples campus, 2655 Northbrooke Drive. The average cost to mitigate a data breach is $4 million, or $158 per compromised record, says Carrie Kerski, director of the institute. Data breaches are more than an IT risk or issue, she adds. Business owners and managers can be held accountable for the breach even if they outsource their IT. Ms. Kerskie says most breaches are the result of employee error, which makes it more important than ever for businesses owners, HR practitioners and those in finance, security and IT to understand how to prevent breaches and what to do when one occurs. Course attendees will learn how data breaches occur, the consequences of a breach, how to reduce the risk of a breach and how to identify applicable privacy laws as well as how to develop a data breach response plan and begin to develop data privacy policies. Small businesses are the top target for hackers, yet very few know how to prevent or mitigate a breach, Ms. Kerskie says. Having a data breach response plan in place saves you time and money and reduces stress on the organization, she says. It is more cost effective to be prepared as opposed to hoping it never happens to you. Registration is $345 ($295 for Hodges University students and employees as well as nonprofit and government employees). Registration is required and can be completed at https:// hu.formstack.com/forms/data_plan. For more information, call Ms. Kerskie at 598-6281 or email ckerskie@hodges. edu.
B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYForum, which hosts seasonal thought leadership and idea exchange forums in Palm Beach County.) Networking is all about building relationships, and despite this world of high-speed instant communication, it takes time. A general marketing fact is it takes seven touches to build trust, said Cyndee Woolley, a Naples public relations, marketing, branding and social media strategist whose C2 Communications has worked with small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Someone has to see your name seven times to really build that trust. Using a mix of media makes it memorable.Identify your audienceBefore you attend an event or strike up an online connection, know whom you need to reach. In her book, Building Brand (You), Ms. Woolley identifies three core audiences each businessperson should connect to. The top of the list is the ideal customer but equally important are establishing peer and inspirational networks for professional and personal support. Networking today means many things, said Tami Patzer, founder of Englewood-based Blue Ocean Authority, Business Innovators Radio and author of the 2011 Ask TAMI: A Logbook of 365+ Social Media Tips, Tricks and Tools. It means an online presence you want to be where potential clients are. You may be on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or LinkedIn. You need to know who your ideal client is and go where they are to provide high-quality, valuable information. If networking is part of someones business strategy, they need to integrate online and offline. Understanding your audience is also about knowing how best to reach them. Text a texter, email a potential customer who works in an office, send a private Facebook message and never underestimate the power of a good old-fashioned phone call, she says. You cant convey emotion in emails and they (calls) cant get misinterpreted depending on whatever the person is feeling that day, Ms. Patzer said. People are afraid to talk on the phone. Youd be pleasantly surprised that decisions can be made during a short telephone conversation. Get socialExperts say its perfectly acceptable to make an initial introduction through social media. Social media is very, very powerful and I use it a lot, Ms. Click said. If you rely on it too much, you waste a lot of time because of its addictive quality. Its always needy and you have to realize youre never going to stay on top of it. If you try to cover them all, its overwhelming. Ms. Click also owns Palm Beach Purses and has her social media faves. Shes not a fan of Facebook but loves LinkedIn and credits Instagram for forcing her creativity with clever hashtags and titles. While planning a series of YouTube video for a new purse collection, a young intern advised each be limited to 20 seconds. Im flexible and will try new things, she said. We posted them and had a huge response. When trying to get press for her clients, Ms. Woolley said she gets the most response by sending information to reporters Twitter accounts.Present a professional imageRemember a lot of your initial networking is virtual and potential clients (and employers) are going to visit your business and social sites. Invest in a professional head shot, says Ms. Woolley. It costs about $100. Pictures are so valuable. I flip through social media profiles and some still make me think, What were they thinking? Their head is cropped out of a group shot on the beach. You see someones shoulder and it looks like an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend is clipped out. Or they have red eyes. It conveys a message of someone who cant pay attention to the details. Presenting the right image, one that reflects your brand, can also get muddied by the past, including negative messages youve liked on a friends Facebook page. Some people still arent getting the message that potential clients are going to dig into your virtual world and pass judgment. After this election season, people are forgetting how to be human beings and are saying nasty things online, said Ms. Woolley. This comes back to haunt you.Get out thereAt some point, most businesspeople have to get outside their comfort zone and make a personal appearance at a chamber event, lecture or conference to increase the odds of landing new business. Im seeing more successful young executives locally and nationally who have a really strong presence about them in person, Ms. Woolley said. They know real business happens in person. Above Board Chamber, a faith-based organization with chapters in Lee and Collier counties, focuses on the face-toface, offering monthly lectures or panels lead by local experts. Januarys events Workplace Law How to Stay out of Jail in 2017 certainly has an attentiongetting title, but they bring together members to network. Many are still at it an hour after the talk, said founder Jeanne Sweeney. My goal is for members to walk in, meet other people and walk out the door having learned something, said Ms. Sweeney. There is sustenance in what we offer. We want people to get something out of this, that they just learned something and their business is going to get better because of what they learned. Our members work together and there are no cliques. Some members call us the family. Ms. Click also emphasizes substance in her forums, which have featured former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley discussing survival after scandal and Jeff Greenes rise from a busboy at The Breakers to billionaire real estate mogul. Shes also sponsored networking events focused on arts, crafts, culture, books and her purse collection. A former playwright, Ms. Click often thinks of networking in terms of the theater, creating events with people based on ideas. You have to put effort into networking to be successful. You have to understand why people are at an event, what theyre looking for and how you can help them. She also helps attendees overcome the dont-know-anyone jitters by introducing them to others. No one feels like a stranger, Ms. Click said. Thats that key to networking: You have to be sincere. Not every networking opportunity is so cozy or friendly. Even high-ranking CEOs of major companies lose their cool when it comes to working a room. Theres also a general consensus that newly minted MBAs arent always trained in communications skills. Human contact is still very important, said Ms. Patzer. The key to networking is to find out as much as you can about the event and determine a realistic goal. Talk to five people who may be an ideal client or a referral. Everything about networking is all about you and them, who you are and what you can do for them. Exchange business cards, send an immediate friend request on Facebook or connect on LinkedIn, she recommends. Take selfies together and tag each other. Youve made a connection even if they lose your business card. The follow-up is important, says Ms. Woolley and Ms. Patzer, and should segue into coffee or a business meeting. But cautions Ms. Patzer, watch it doesnt turn into a pick-your-brainfest. She also says video conferences and Skype sessions can substitute for in-person meetings if theres a distance barrier or a potential business partnership is in preliminary discussions. Sometimes people tell me to meet (them) in Naples but with all these tools, theres no reason to drive across town for a short meeting, she says. I want a client to value my time and their time. Its really important to understand you can do business globally, network globally and dont have to leave home or the office. You can create a rich, deep connection without physically being there.Do your researchNot every chamber or association icebreaker is going to result in milliondollar leads. Nor will every potential contact become your ideal client. Finding the right event to make the right connections is important, said Ms. Woolley. If youre trying to get business from a CEO you need to profile them and decide what events theyre likely to attend by thinking about your one or two best customers where you met them, the activities they like and their social lives. A CEO with children at home will probably do more morning events. If youre not meeting your ideal customer, move on and find another opportunity. People waste a lot of time at nonproductive networking events. They feel theyre doing something even if it isnt effective. Social media also helps you gain somewhat of an understanding of those potential clients but be wary as honesty and truth isnt always practiced on some sites. Also, dont discount your connections. If youre trying to get an entry into a business or company, youre probably connected to them by a second or third connection who can make a warmer introduction, Ms. Woolley says. Some people completely overlook this. Theyre reinventing the wheel by looking for a phone number or finding an administrative assistant. Case in point: Ms. Woolley landed online training courses based on her book by following up on a pop-up LinkedIn suggestion. She reached out to that connection and inquired about getting her book reviewed. He didnt do that but forwarded my information to someone who did, she said. The next day I got a phone call from the person who selects books to review. She said she didnt know how my name ended up on her desk out of the hundreds of other requests. I cut through the clutter. As part of her service to her members, Ms. Sweeney offers free press release and blog distribution and opportunities to attend speaker and after-hours events held at a variety of venues in both counties. But to her, the trend in networking is the personal touch she provides. Ms. Sweeney makes a point of always being accessible via cellphone and social media (she answered a reporters call during a doctors appointment). I make sure no one gets lost in the shuffle, she said. Ive helped members figure out social media and walked them through Facebook. One of my favorite things is our Member Checkup. With most businesses theres usually one thing theyre not really good at. They let me know if they have financial, legal or marketing issues and I send a member to consult for free. Ms. Patzer said the future of networking is a mix of online and offline interactions with the trend being toward fewer personal meetings and more online. Yes, you can do almost everything online and never leave your house. But just because you can doesnt mean you should. Put the phone away and look into someones eyes and have a real conversation. Thats so vital today. NETWORKFrom page 1CLICK PATZER WOOLLEY SWEENEY COURTESY PHOTOTami Patzer, left, and others networking with Arsenio Hall, third from left.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2017 BUSINESS B5 A BETTER GAME GUARANTEED 24850 Old 41 Rd #9, Bonita Spings, FL Improve your game by scheduling your club tting today.www.truespecgolf.com 1-844-729-8809 email@example.com MONEY & INVESTINGMacys numbers reflect a downward trend for department stores As my wife will tell you, I cant stand shopping. This is especially true of clothes shopping. I never know what looks good on me or what style of jeans happens to be in at the moment. Because of this, I avoid department stores as much as I can. I probably havent been in one in more than a year. Unfortunately for most of these retail locations, I am not the only one whos been staying away. Just last week the largest department store chain, Macys, announced another quarter of terrible earnings. Why did this happen, and what does the future hold for the company and department stores in general? In looking at the earnings release from Macys, there was no silver lining to the slew of horrendous numbers the company reported. First, comparable sales fell 2.1 percent, at the low end of its projections. The CEO blamed this partially on ongoing weakness in handbags and watches. Next, the chain announced 2106 earnings of $2.95 to $3.10 a share not good considering pr ojections ha d been for $3.40 a share. Management cited a sluggish holiday season as the reason for the disappointing income numbers. And finally, the Macys folks said they do not anticipate the negative momentum turning around anytime soon. In fact, the management team projected sales will decline another 2 percent in 2017. There were two reactions to this poor news: First, the stock dropped around 10 percent in after-market trading. Then the Macys management team announced it would be laying off 6,200 employees and closing 100 stores, allowing it to focus on high-performing locations and its e-commerce efforts. Clearly, the future of Macys is not looking particularly bright. With store traffic anticipated to continue in decline, Macys is looking for alternate sources of revenue. It hopes its Bluemercury beauty shops will continue to flourish, and the company is expanding its offprice locations, Macys Backstage. It also hopes it can gain traction in international markets like China and Kuwait. While these ventures can certainly add incremental revenue to Macys bottom line, most of them are either too small or too early in development to be needle-movers in the short term. Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and online stores will continue to chip away at department store customers. To raise capital to fund its growth plans, Macys has resorted to selling its crown jewels: its vast real estate holdings. In October, it sold five stores to a national REIT, including its flagship location in San Francisco and its stores in Portland and Minneapolis. Yet despite all of these issues, Macys stock still trades at a healthy 15 times earnings and pays a 4 percent dividend. With the company struggling, many analysts are questioning whether it will maintain this payout and whether this multiple is justified. Until the chain can demonstrate a solid turn-around plan, I would be very hesitant to jump into this stock.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Researching Companies and IndustriesDont buy stock in any companies without researching them to determine how healthy and promising they are. Two books that can help you evaluate companies are The Little Book That Still Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt and The Little Book of Value Investing by Christopher H. Browne (both Wiley, $25). You can do much of your research online, though: At the companys website, look for links labeled About Us or Company Information. Click on Investors and try to read through at least the most recent annual report. A Career Opportunities section can show how heavily the company is hiring and what kinds of workers it needs. At company data providers, such as finance.yahoo.com, you can type in a companys ticker symbol and find news, financial reports, key statistics, historical data and much more. Most major online brokerages offer customers access to a range of Wall Street analysts research reports on gobs of stocks. These can offer a lot of useful information, so see what research your brokerage offers. You can learn more about choosing the best brokerage at fool. com/how-to-invest/broker/index.aspx. Its useful to study a companys entire industry, and you can do so at sites such as bls.gov/iag and valuationresources.com/ IndustryReport.htm. Simple Googling can yield helpful results, too. You can look up historical price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and other measures at sites such as morningstar. com. Historical numbers can help you assess how attractively priced a stock is. If a company youre examining has a P/E of 15, for example, and you see that over the past five years its P/E has usually been around 23, then you might be looking at an attractive price. (Do more digging, though, to make sure the company isnt facing some tough challenges right now.) Articles in current issues and archives of financial periodicals such as The Wall Street Journal and Fortune magazine can also be informative, as can your local newspapers business section. Oh, WellMy dumbest investment was following the advice of a TV investing pundit, who recommended buying more and more stock in the Brazilian mining company Vale. I ended up with more than 1,000 shares, and lost 12.5 percent of my retirement. He said, Oh, well. B., onlineThe Fool Responds: When listening to financial gurus or reading their recommendations, its important to remember that you probably dont know just how skilled they are and what their full track record is. Many will crow about some great calls theyve made, but they wont be so eager to mention bad ones. Even with good calls, you typically wont hear about it when they change their minds, and you may end up hanging on to shares they no longer believe in.Keep in mind, too, that even the best stock analysts and investors will occasionally be wrong. Thats why its smart to be fully engaged in your investing, knowing your investments well and following their developments, so that youll know if and when they go off course. Be wary, too, of putting too many eggs in one basket. That 12.5 percent represented a full eighth of your portfolio. Vale had some terrible years recently, in part due to falling commodity prices. It has more than doubled over the past year, but is still well below its levels of a few years ago. Drugmaker DividendsDanish drug giant Novo Nordisk (NYSE: NVO), a kingpin in the diabetes space, disappointed Wall Street and investors following the release of its third-quarter results in late October. The company cut its long-term profit growth forecast from 10 percent to 5 percent and pointed to insulin competition in the U.S., causing it to lower prices in order to remain on insurer formularies. As a result of its falling share price, Novo Nordisks dividend yield shot up and was recently at an attractive 4 percent. However, the company has demonstrated repeatedly that it can bring innovative drugs to market. For example, sales of its next-generation insulin product Tresiba increased by 184 percent in the first nine months of 2016, and are expected to continue to rise, with some expecting $3 billion in peak annual sales. The steady rise in global diabetes trends offers Novo Nordisk the chance to succeed simply through sheer volume, even if profit margins are being pressured in the near term. Within the U.S., arguably the most important market for Big Pharma, the percentage of the population diagnosed with diabetes has grown from 0.87 percent in 1959 to 7.02 percent as of 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Novo Nordisk is a drug company that longterm investors seeking income should consider. (The Motley Fool has recommended Novo Nordisk.) I trace my roots back to 1902, when 30 gypsum and plaster makers merged, creating a company with 37 mining and calcining plants producing plaster for agriculture and construction. My early products were fireproof tiles and drywall which covered walls without warping or burning and the housing boom after World War II was great for business. Today, based in Chicago and with a market value around $4 billion, Im a giant in my field, offering products such as Sheetrock, cement board, joint compound, flooring materials, caulking, primers, acoustical ceiling panels and suspended ceiling systems. Who am I? (Answer: USG) Vested and UnvestedQWhat are vested and unvested options? B.W., South Bend, IndianaAYoure vested when you become eligible to take ownership of something, or to exercise an option. Imagine that you work at Sisyphus Inc. (ticker: UPDWN) and receive stock options on 100 shares of company stock. Lets say that over the next four years, 25 percent of the options vest each April 1. So on April 1, 2017, youll be able to exercise the option and buy 25 shares at the specified price. A year later, another 25 shares will vest. On April 1, 2020, youll be fully vested and can buy all 100 shares (or any shares you havent bought yet) if you want to. Companies structure rewards this way to motivate employees to stick around. Vesting schedules can vary, stretching over a few or many years. ***QIf I sell a stock thats in my Roth IRA for a loss, can I deduct the loss when I eventually withdraw money from the account? R.T., Richmond, CaliforniaASorry. You can deduct investing losses generated through regular brokerage accounts, but IRA accounts work differently. If you follow the rules, youll pay no taxes on your Roth withdrawals, but youll also get no tax benefits from losses. Imagine investing $5,000 per year in your Roth and earning an average annual gain of 8 percent. In 25 years, youd have more than $360,000, and youd be able to take it all out taxfree! Traditional IRAs work a little differently, offering you an upfront tax break by letting you shrink your taxable income by the amount of your contribution. They, too, dont permit deductions for losses within the IRA account. Learn more at fool. com/retirement. Want more information about stocks?

JUST SOLD! Youve dreamed and planned for owning a second home. Imagine enjoying vacations whenever you want, entertaining family and friends, and creating a home away from home. There are many good reasons for owning a second home. Before you take that step, there are some considerations for your careful planning. First, many second home/vacation home owners take the steps to improve family time and take a break from their hectic daily schedules. Booking reservations and the overall cost for vacation time can mount quickly. Often times, a vacation home purchase simplifies the vacation process, while offering an opportunity to build a legacy for a lifetime. A second home creates a gathering place where new traditions are born. And, as Mark Patterson notes on the U.S. News & World Report website, that family vacation home may eventually become your family legacy. Buying that second home in a location where you desire to retire provides wonderful vacation opportunities and allows you to establish community ties that make for a smooth transition down the road. A trial run if you will, with the opportunity to build friendships and immerse yourself in local activities. What better way to determine if this is the place to spend your retirement years? Though you may not want to rent your vacation home when youre away, financial benefits may still be available. Modest appreciation over the years, along with some tax benefits, make the option even more appealing. Lastly, second homes, like relationships, need TLC. When considering your second home purchase, make sure you know your options for maintaining your home, but remember your friends and family for that emotional ROI. Making Memories...Priceless.

As Naples Artcrafters marks its 50th anniversary, it does so with a commitment to keeping the group small and casual rather than celebrating its success by expanding its membership and mission. Keeping with tradition, Naples Artcrafters members stage outdoor art shows in Cambier Park (one show this year will set up in Fleischmann Park) on the second Saturday of each month October through April. Were an artist-run show, member Bonnie Hawley says. Its a cute little show in the park. And while were going to add a segment near the childrens playground, once we get larger than that it would lose its ambience and we would lose control of it. With that decision, the group has decided to hew close to its founding members mission to have a more informal organization that welcomes crafters and fine artists alike. The group has been extremely active since its inception, though the earliest members were more interesting in hosting macram or jewelry lessons than staging shows and exhibitions, Ms. Hawley says. Over the years, it grew from an informal club to a nonprofit organization that donates proceeds from its events to other area organizations, including Empty Bowls Naples and the City of Naples Parks & Recreation Department, to promote art in the community. The city of Naples recognized Nov. 14 as Naples Artcrafters Day, and Mayor Bill Barnett cut the ceremonial ribbon at that months show. I like being part of Artcrafters because we have a common goal of making things with your hands and if you make it, you have to sell it, Ms. Hawley says.

Alexander. Kensington. 304 pages. Trade paperback, $15.Set near Dublin in the 1960s, this unusual novel carefully constructs a powerful vision of religiosity run amok. Its focus is two teenage girls who are assigned to the Magdalen Laundries at The Sisters of the Holy Redemption Convent. Their parents have turned over their care to the convent, believing that its discipline and spartan living conditions will bring the young women to faith, responsibility and eventually to productive, upright lives. Thats the positive spin on the parents motives, which readers will find far less noble. In fact, the institution is a prison and slave labor operation, all in the name of Jesus and his Father. Both Nora Craven and Teagan Tiernan are in their mid-teens. Their home lives are disastrous: their parents strongly judgmental and unloving, their fathers done in by drinking. Both seek to escape, but as minors they have no standing. Their relationships to the Catholic Church are unfulfilling, but it is the church and/or its institutions that will dominate their lives. Nora and Teagan both end up spending time in confinement in the Magdalen Laundry at the convent. Over the course of a year, they endure poor food and strenuous labor, with their only hope that conformity to a harsh, identity-crushing routine or escape will bring them a viable future. The fact that they have been turned over to the authority of Sister Anne, the Mother Superior, predicts a gloomy fate, as this woman is on the edge of a psychotic breakdown. In essence, the girls are abandoned by their parents. As Magdalens, they are objects of community scorn. Teagan, moreover, is betrayed by the leaders of her neighborhood church, accused and convicted of immoral behavior without any legal proceedings or any opportunity to defend herself. Priestly misconduct goes on unchallenged. In the view of Sister Anne, the girls sinful natures must be beaten out of them. This woman is addicted to slicing her arms with a sharp blade. Her action is at once an act of faith, a punishment and a deeply buried recognition that her abuses of power are worse than anything the Magdalen girls do. Its the Middle Ages brought to the later 20th century. V.S. Alexanders exploration of the convents living conditions and the personalities of those who reside there is entirely convincing and compelling. This is a place where silence is the norm. The furtive communications between Nora (renamed Monica) and Teagan (renamed Teresa) and among all the Magdalens are presented in an extremely effective manner. The inmates have a range of responses to their situation: Some expect to become nuns, others expect eventual freedom, and others wish they were dead. Suspense grows out of Nora/Monica and Teagan/Teresas onand-off preparations to escape, as well as from their successful but temporary escapes. The surrounding cultural environment insists on their capture and return to the convent. These same episodes reveal the spirited nature of these girls, the life force that refuses to be ground down. Following one of her escapes, Nora/Monica becomes pregnant. How the nuns and the girls peers respond to this situation is among the most interesting aspects of the book. I wont tell y ou the outcome. The Magdalen Girls is not pleasant reading. One can be sickened by the abuses of power and abandonment of responsibility by dysfunctional parents and by church authorities. Mr. Alexander has provided a deep psychological probing of the perverse dynamic linking harsh punishment with ostensible love. In this case, as well, we have the perversion or at least the misunderstanding and misapplication of religious dogma. This author has a magnificent eye for detail. He draws so vividly the laundry in operation, the girls living quarters and garments, the architecture of the convent and adjacent orphanage, the family dwellings and the physical characteristics of the ample and fascinating cast of characters. Mr. Alexander is an ardent student of history with a strong interest in music and the visual arts. Some of his writing influences include Shirley Jackson, Oscar Wilde, Daphne du Maurier and any work by the exquisite Bront sisters. He lives in Oakland Park, near Fort Lauderdale, and is at work on a second historical novel. 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 JANUARY 12-18, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGEORGE M!From page 1ARTCRAFTERSFrom page 1 Naples Artcrafters requires members to have at least part-time residency in town and to have their works juried by a standards committee before being accepted in to the group. Both requirements keep the membership small which means members must take an active role in producing and running the monthly shows (for which the booth fee is just $65 a month). Lots of artists want in, but not many make it. The selection process is rigorous and thorough. We dont want anything mass-produced it must all be original and handmade, Ms. Hawley says. Membership also must reflect a variety of mediums. Weve had to limit the number of photographers and jewelers because we dont want the show to be out of balance, she explains. Naples Artcrafters 2017 show scheduleAll shows take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Jan. 14 in Cambier Park Feb. 11 in Cambier Park March 11 in Fleischmann Park April 8 in Cambier Park For more information, visit www.naplesartcrafters.com. Mayor Bill Barnett, in red shirt, presents the city of Naples proclamation of Nov. 14 as Naples Artcrafters Day to member artists Corky Ditocoff, Clark Lindberg and David Arrowsmith. Naples Artcrafters member Dusty Holmes creates a pine needle basket at one of the groups art shows. Ms. Holmes is also the nonprofit organizations volunteer treasurer. professional company. Our audiences always love tap dancing, so its been on our short list a while, he says. Its a big, tap-dancing, traditional American show about the man who invented the modern musical. Written by Michael Stewart, John Pascal and Francine Pascal, George M! debuted in 1968. The story follows Mr. Cohan from the time he was a boy performing vaudeville acts in his family troupe, The Four Cohans, to his prolific career writing and producing musicals in the first half of the 20th century. Best known for his additions to the American Songbook, hes epitomized by many performers as the ultimate showman who lived for the stage. He started the whole musical theater genre, says TheatreZone choreographer Karen Molnar. He would work on one show after another. Hed go home at night and lay in bed for 10 minutes and be up with a new idea for a song. It was his whole life. The show packs in 20 song-anddance numbers, and with the short rehearsal time, Ms. Molnar is grateful for having a cast that can pick it up quickly. Its one number after another, she says. Its challenging but fun. Many of the tap moves are standard steps that Mr. Cohan created, she adds. And because the actors are all professionals, You dont have to spoon-feed it to them. The sound and sight of a group of dancers executing such precise movements reliably enthralls audiences everywhere, she says. The (dancers) feet are making eight sounds to a beat, and its so precise they sound like one person. Its just amazing to get human beings to do that intricate work so precisely. In addition to a tight rehearsal schedule, dance captain Charles Logan who originally was cast to play Mr. Cohans producer, Sam Harris quickly stepped into the lead role when the first actor playing Mr. Cohan had to drop out less than two weeks from opening night. Playing Mr. Cohan has been a dream for some time, Mr. Logan says, and he seized the opportunity. I was learning the numbers anyway with the choreographer, so that was a big help, he says, adding the biggest challenge has been learning his lines. George talks a lot and he stays on stage almost the entire time, he says. TheatreZones cast of George M! also includes Shawn Shears and Meghan Jimenez as Georges father and mother, Jerry and Nellie; Brittany Halen as Georges sister, Josie; Brittany Ambler as Georges first wife, Ethel Levey, and Juliet Jewett as his second wife, Agnes Nolan; Kara Konken as Broadway star Faye Templeton; and Christopher Lewis as Georges producing partner, Sam Harris. The new season for TheatreZone continues with Amadeus, Feb. 9-19; to 5: The Musical, March 9-19; and the Peter Allen musical comedy Legs Diamond Lives Again, April 27-May 7.

Lutronix Inni Fall under the romantic spell of Bell, Book & Candle BY PATRICE SHIELDSSpecial to Florida WeeklyVisiting New York producer/director/ writer Chris Goutman believes in loves magic powers and explores them with The Naples Players in Bell, Book & Candle. The old-fashioned romantic comedy is on stage through Feb. 5 at the Sugden Community Theatre. Mr. Goutman is perhaps best known for his work on the daytime television shows All My Children, As the World Turns and Guiding Light. He believes Bell, Book and Candle has something to say about magic. Im not just referring to the spells and potions that spice up the play, but to the kind of magic that happens between two people and the transformative power of true love, he says. The original script was written by writer/ director John van Druten, who rose to notoriety in the 1970s with his Broadway smash hit, Cabaret. Earlier in his career, Bell, Book & Candle served as the inspiration for the beloved 1960s television series Bewitched, starring Elizabeth Montgomery. Mr. Van Drutens stage comedy starred Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer on Broadway. It was followed by the 1958 film version with James Stewart and Kim Novak. The story focuses on a beautiful and beguiling witch, Gillian, who is living incognito amongst a world of mortals. Shes attempting to live a normal life in the Murray Hill district of New York City in the 1950s. After understandably falling for her handsome publisher neighbor Shepherd Henderson, she casts a spell on him so he will dump his current fianc. But love proves to be the most potent magic of all as Gillian faces losing her powers when she falls under the spell of Shepherds mortal charms. Dede Brownlee and Eric Bohus star as Gillian and Shepherd in The Naples Players production of Bell, Book & Candle. Further complicating matters are Gillians meddling aunt, Miss Holroyd (played by Diane Davis); her mischief-making warlock brother, Nicky Holroyd (Renzo Soriano); and an author-turned-witch hunter Sidney Reditch (James Simmons), who is out to expose the magical goings on in highsociety Manhattan. Real magic, which relies on human chemistry, trumps false magic, based on manipulation and deception, every time, says director Mr. Goutman. But dont think too much while watching the play, he advises. Sit back, relax and let Bell, Book & Candle cast a spell on you. Bell, Book & Candle>> Who: The Naples Players >> When: Through Feb. 5 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre >> Cost: $35 for adults, $10 for students >> Info: 263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.orgYou might love having a role in I Hate HamletThe Naples Players hold auditions for I Hate Hamlet starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Sugden Community Theatre. No appointments are needed. The comedy by Paul Rudnick follows struggling television actor Andrew Rally, who has moved to New York and has been offered the lead role in Hamlet. The only problem: He hates Shakespeare. As he struggles with his part, Paul is also dealing with a canceled TV show and a girlfriend whos keeping a firm grip on her chastity. Then hes visited by the ghost of John Barrymore, who attempts to introduce him to the joys of fame, dames and melancholy Danes. The script calls for four women and three men ages 25-50. Scripts are available at the box office for 72-hour perusal before auditions ($20 deposit required). Rehearsals for I Hate Hamlet begin March 6, and the show runs April 19-May 14 on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre.

Voted THE BEST OF THE GULFSHORE PRIVATE SCHOOL by Gulfshore Life Magazine! CONTRACT BRIDGEThe sure road to victoryBY STEVE BECKER Assume youre in four hearts and West leads the king of spades followed by the ace. You ruff and draw Wests four trumps, then lead the queen of clubs and finesse. East wins with the king and returns a spade, and West cashes the Q-9-5 of spades to put you down two 200 points. This is certainly disappointing, since you would have made the contract if West had had the decency to hold the king of clubs, or if he had held only three trumps instead of four, or if East had started with two spades instead of three. However, when you give the matter a bit more thought, you realize that the contract was practically certain from the outset and that you should have made four hearts despite your bad luck. All you had to do was to discard a club at trick two! You could then ruff the spade continuation at trick three, draw trumps and take the club finesse. But this time, because East doesnt have a spade to return, you finish with 10 tricks even though the club finesse loses. Rejecting the temptation to ruff the spade ace at trick two is consistent with a guiding principle of good dummy play. Declarer assumes the worst namely, that the club finesse will lose and that the trumps are divided 4-2 rather than 3-3 and he then caters to these possibilities in whatever way he can. The club discard by South at trick two might constitute a pessimistic approach to the play, but in bridge, cautious pessimism is often the key to victory.

Our installations reect your dreams and your personality, while dramatically enhancing your home. Let me nd the perfect solution for you. FILM CAPSULESHidden Figures (Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae) African-American women and brilliant mathematicians Katherine (Ms. Henson), Dorothy (Ms. Spencer) and Mary (Ms. Monae) play integral roles in launching astronaut John Glenn into outer space in the early s. It hits the racial plights you expect and have seen before, but the performances are solid and it tells a great (true) story about three tremendous women. Rated PG.Fences 1/2(Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Jovan Adepo) In 1950s Pittsburgh, Troy (Mr. Washington) is an unhappy father and husband who blames racism for derailing his promising baseball career. Washington does double duty as actor and director, and his performance alongside Davis is tremendous. Both are shoo-ins for Oscar acting nominations. Rated PG-13.Passengers (Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen) On a space ship, Jim (Mr. Pratt) and Aurora (Ms. Lawrence) wake 90 years before their scheduled arrival to their new destination. Its slow, predictable, and thoroughly mediocre. More comic relief is sorely needed, especially from the two leads. Rated PG-13.Jackie (Natalie Portman, Billy Crudup, Peter Sarsgaard) Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy (Ms. Portman) speaks with a journalist (Mr. Crudup) about the days following her husbands murder in November 1963. Ms. Portmans performance and the natural intrigue we have about this time in Jackies life will be enough for most to enjoy it; take note, though, that some of whats on screen is not taken from verified true events. Rated R.La La Land (Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, J.K. Simmons) Aspiring jazz pianist Sebastian (Mr. Gosling) meets aspiring actress Mia (Ms. Stone) in modern-day L.A., and the two fall in love while trying to find career success. Writer/director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) tells the story as a classic Hollywood musical, and the result is absolutely stunning. Its a great movie. Rated PG-13.Collateral Beauty (Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet) Successful ad exec Howard (Mr. Smith) loses his daughter and his life falls apart. His friends/colleagues (Mr. Norton, Ms. Winslet, Michael Pena) then recruit three actors to represent Love (Keira Knightley), Death (Helen Mirren) and Time (Jacob Latimore) to connect with Howard and help any way they can. Its told with the same tone as A Christmas Carol, so its a nice mixture of seriousness and levity. And you can see the cast loving the material. This is a feel-good tale with a perfectly timed holiday season release. Rated PG-13.Nocturnal Animals (Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor-Johnson) An art gallery owner (Ms. Adams) receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband (Mr. Gyllenhaal) that isnt based on true events, but nonetheless makes her think about their past. Writer/director Tom Ford nicely plays with the question of how art imitates reality, and the performances are solid, especially Gyllenhaal. Rated R.

NoNotably lacking from Martin Scorseses Silence is the distinctive dynamic style that makes the master auteurs work special. Theres very little music, no sweeping camera movements and precious few filmmaking techniques on display. Consequently nothing about the movie is captivating, and at times its barely interesting, resulting in a dull slog of 161 minutes. The story, written by Mr. Scorsese and Jay Cocks (Gangs of New York) and adapted from the Shusaku Endo novel of the same name, is one of religious imperialism and philosophy. In 1640, Portuguese Jesuit priests Sebastian Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) and Francisco Garrpe (Adam Driver) venture to Japan to find their mentor, Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson). Because the roughly 300,000 Christians in Japan are being persecuted for their beliefs, Rodrigues and Garrpe believe Ferreira is in danger. Although they know the Buddhist majority is murdering Christians in inhumane ways, they assume the risk, citing Gods will for strength and guidance. Its on the journey to find Ferreira that the film grinds to a screeching halt. Hes not easy to locate, and the Christians whore eager to help have no idea where he is. The plot then becomes episodic as Rodrigues and Garrpe soothe Christians with confessions and teachings, all the while wary of Inquisitors coming to kill them. As Rodrigues journeys from one village to the next it also becomes repetitive, with the only creativity being the brutal ways Christians are murdered. When you look at your watch after an hour and a half and sigh in dread that you have another hour to go, its a terrible feeling. After the last hour doesnt get any better, your feeling is validated though you of course dont feel good about this because it means the movie never improves. To its credit, Silence raises thoughtprovoking issues, albeit in a mundane way. At its core, this is about the desire to continue to have faith even as it conflicts with your experiences. Surely no just and merciful God would allow innocent people to die at the hands of extremists, right? Prayer is used to ensure this will not happen, but when prayers arent answered, Rodrigues and Garrpe cant help but question their beliefs. The idea of spreading religion where its not wanted is also discussed, which is certainly prescient now as well. Your religious inclinations will likely dictate the way you interpret how Christianity and Buddhism are depicted, but its nonetheless worth pointing out that Mr. Scorsese doesnt seem to be picking sides. Hes interested only in asking the questions; its through the strength of Mr. Garfield, Mr. Driver and Mr. Neesons performances that trying to find the answers becomes heart wrenching and complex. Unfortunately, it all plays out in a way thats exhaustingly tedious. A movie doesnt have to be flashy to be good, but tighter editing in this case would have quickened the pace. Mr. Scorsese is going for a distinctly subtle feel in Silence. If he succeeds at all, he succeeds too well because its so subtle and quiet that it never resonates. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> According to www.businessinsider. com, it took nearly 30 years for Martin Scorsese to get this lm made.

The patent office at first required a working model of an invention, but later, just accurate drawings and details were enough. Victorians loved gadgets and specialty tools. There were hundreds of patents granted for apple peelers, lighting devices, corkscrews, fruit jars, washing machines, washboards, toasters, napkin rings and cooking pots, and today there are collector clubs for almost every one of these specialties. An unusual all-wooden washboard was sold in 2016 by Hess Auction Group. It has threaded wooden rollers instead of a corrugated metal or glass rubbing surface. The maple rollers rolled in opposite directions and, according to the ads, the screw threads do all the work. The first wooden rollers were made by the Hubbard Brothers, and the Mother Hubbard Roller Washboard was a popular item sold door-to-door in the early 1900s. The washboards were no longer made after 1935, because they were not needed if you had an electric washing machine. Q: Id like to know the value of a crocheted bedspread my great-grandmother made about 1910. It is made of squares with a rose in the center of each square. I realize that everyone has handmade items that are only worth sentimental value, but this spread is in perfect condition and is exceptionally beautiful. What do you think its worth? A: You can sell the bedspread to a dealCOURTESY PHOTO This all-wooden washboard sold at auction for $195. It is 22 inches high and still in working condition, although it is at least 80 years old.

An old double-bed size spread, with old thread and old design, might sell for less than $100. Q: What can you tell me about a Garland Jr. toy stove? Is it a salesmans sample? A: Most little stoves, even exact replicas of full-size stoves, probably were made as toys. Some may have been salesmens samples or as items for display. Some were offered free or for sale to customers who bought a full-size stove. Garland Stove was founded by brothers Jeremiah and James Dwyer in Detroit in 1853. The Garland brand name is now owned by Manitowoc Foodservice, which makes Garland ranges, broilers and griddles. Q: How much are the 1996 edition of Pokmon cards worth? The cards are American and Japanese and are in albums, but a few are missing. We think some might be worth something. How can we find out?A: Pokmon started out as a video game for Game Boy in February 1996. The name Pokmon is a contraction of the words Pocket Monster. The first Pokmon cards were Pocket Monster cards issued in Japan in October 1996. There were 102 cards in the set. The first Pokmon cards in English were in the Demo Game pack, issued in limited quantity in December 1998. The first set of 102 cards in English was issued in the U.S. in January 1999. There are over 700 different Pokmon characters today. Incomplete sets of cards sell online for a few dollars. Value is determined by rarity and condition. The best place to find current values is to go to a card show or to a store that sells cards.Q: I won a Shelley cup, saucer and plate two years ago. The pattern is called Crochet. I thought Id check it out. I didnt realize Shelley stuff was so big. I just thought it was a bone china cup not a big deal. Now I wonder if you can give me a rough value and age? A: Joseph B. Shelley started out as a salesman for Foley China Works in Longton, Staffordshire, England, in 1862 and became a partner in 1872. His son, Percy Shelley, joined the firm in 1881. By 1884, father and son were running the business. The company became Shelley China in 1910, and in 1929, it became Shelley Potteries. In 1966, it was bought by Allied English Potteries. A set that includes a cup, saucer and cake plate is called a trio. Your Crocket trio is listed online for $79 to $102. Q: I came across an old R.C. Allen 10 Key Calculator Model 35 that my dad used for his business. On the front, it says World Famous 10 Key Calculator, American and Swedish Patents. A: Ralph C. Allen founded his company in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1932. The company made and distributed calculating machines, cash registers and typewriters. This calculator was made in 1948. It originally sold for $397. Old calculators are not very useful and not popular collectibles, so they are very hard, if not impossible, to sell. Tip: Ordinary beer is great for cleaning a gilded mirror frame. Just pour it on a soft rag, rub gently and dry. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

I cant speak for others, but for me, its the thrill of the hunt. Back in the s and s, before there was an internet and before you could just look anything up and order it, I loved to drive to Miami for the day to go record shopping. Id start in Palm Beach County, work my way through Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood before heading to Miamis Little Haiti for French records at Les Cousins, on Second Avenue just off 79th Street, then on to Sounds of Music in Coral Gables for classical LPs and CDs and the original Specs in South Miami for classical, folk and world music. Id duplicate those efforts on the west coast, visiting Rainbow Records, on Cleveland Avenue across from Lee Memorial Hospital, before heading down to the independently owned Record Bar in Naples and Record Trader in east Fort Myers, where Chester Rogers had a knack for hunting down rarities. You never knew what youd find. Ive always had the same thrill for antiques, too. For a year or two before she died in 1949, my great-grandmother wanted to expand her set of Lenox china to a service of 24. That way, she could entertain in the manner in which she wanted and shed have two sets of 12 to leave to my grandparents and my grandfathers sister. Alas, Lenox discontinued her pattern in 1948, and when she died, my greatgrandfather and my grandfathers sister divvied the dishes into two even sets of six essentially rendering the service useless. It became a mission of sorts to find pieces. Mrs. Turschwell had a tray in her store at the Collier Arcade in downtown Fort Myers. Grandma passed on that because it was too large to fit in the cubbies of her buffet. Fort Myers dealer Mary Nooe later had one three-piece place setting in Grandmas pattern. I think I paid Mary $35 for it on layaway, mind you. But it wasnt until about a decade ago, when I found an entire service in St. Petersburg that I was finally able to combine the dinnerware into something truly special. The thrill of the hunt. That might mean finding imperial Russian porcelain buried beneath a pile of Christmas ornaments, as I recently did, or happening upon the silver-plated tureen that happens to match the pitcher I found a couple weeks before. Whatever the find, it keeps me hungry for more.

Whats the likelihood of my finding the matching tureen a few weeks later? My pieces date from the 1880s or s, and are silver over copper. The Tufts company closed in 1915. The lid to the tureen has been dropped and its handle repaired, but theres enough silver remaining on the piece to make it glow. I love the shell motif of the vividly detailed design. As with the pitcher, its beautiful and its timeless just like the sea. THE FIND:A silver-plated tureen by James W. Tufts of Boston. SCOTT SIMMONS/ FLORIDA WEEKLYRemember the water pitcher I found a few weeks ago in Fort Myers (right)? Can you believe I found the matching tureen (left) 120 miles away, in West Palm Beach?

Has it been renewed for another season? Randy H., via emailA: Showtimes longest-running series indeed will be back for a 12-episode eighth season. The ensemble series which stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum as the father and oldest daughter of the dysfunctional Gallagher family will begin production in May. Showtimes top comedy also stars Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Cameron Monaghan and Isidora Goreshter. Q: I read with interest your article about Tzi Ma and The Man in the High Castle, which made me want to watch the series. Will it have more than just the two seasons? Charlie F., via FacebookA: It will indeed. Word just came down that Amazon has green lighted a third season of the alternate-reality apocalyptic drama. As timely as ever, the exploration of characters at a dark point for humanity has provided incredible stories for two seasons, Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios head of comedy and drama, said in a statement. Eric (Overmyer, season-three showrunner and executive producer) and his team are doing an incredible job crafting stories about the inner lives of those who struggle to do good in a world that is not. Q: Oh, dear God, please tell me the rumors are true that Will and Grace is coming back! Craig H., Columbus, OhioA: I am not God, but I can tell you that according to series regular Leslie Jordan, the show is indeed returning for a 10-episode season, and the cast is set to start shooting in July for a fall premiere. As of this writing, NBC and other cast members had neither confirmed nor denied Mr. Jordans statement. There has been much speculation about a series revival ever since the cast reunited for its #VoteHoney campaign back in September. They still have an undeniable chemistry and love for one another, and I cant wait for the shows return! Q: I finally saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them over the holidays, and of course, I loved it. I was pleasantly surprised to see Samantha Morton in a co-starring role. Can you tell me what else shell be in? Ellie W., via emailA: Samantha stars in the upcoming Hulu original series Harlots, which centers on her character, Margaret Wells, as she struggles to reconcile her roles as brothel owner and mother to daughters Charlotte and Lucy. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley, a rival madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret must fight back, even if it means losing her family and possibly her life. Harlots is a powerful family drama set in 18th-century London that offers a brand-new take on the citys most valuable commercial activity: sex. The eight-episode season premieres Wednesday, March 29.

THE DISHThe Dish: Pork Belly Tacos The Price: $12 The Place: Public House Creekside Corners 1514 Immokalee Road The Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily The Full Menu: www.publichouseofnaples.com The Details: During our drive home from the kids first day back at school, my car got smacked. The other driver couldnt tell the officer what happened (I certainly could), and after working through a fit of rage, I was still shaken up when we all arrived home. Thats when my husband suggested we should soothe ourselves with a tasty Tuesday night supper at freshly opened Public House. The restaurant had just completed its first service the day before, but the food and service left no evidence of it it was so delicious that all our small plates were worthy of featuring here, but Ill stick to the tacos since they were an excellent distraction for me. The chewy morsels of pork belly, dressed in a hoisin-ginger glaze and topped with cilantro slaw and mango, were the perfect balance of sweet and salty. This dish is probably the best Ive tasted in recent memory. Pork belly tacos dont seem like a particularly exotic menu item, but Public Houses execution is unique and explosive unlike our low-speed, totally preventable collision. One More Thing: Order the cinnamon-sugar doughnuts for dessert. They are freshly fried and served with chocolate sauce and another I cant quite name, but my moneys on something vanilla bean-ish. Neither of the dippers was mentioned in the menu, so maybe it was supposed to be a surprise.

But thats what Bob Germain Jr. has done with the opening of St. Germain Steakhouse at Bayfront Place in the space formerly occupied by Stoneys Steakhouse. Unlike the rest of the herd Shulas, Jimmy Ps Charred, Capital Grille, Flemings and Prestons its not situated in an obvious spot along U.S. 41. Nonetheless, its just a stones throw from downtown and theres even valet parking for those who wish to leave that chore to others. St. Germain is worth finding, for the well-executed food and the fact that entrees are served get ready with potatoes and, in some cases, vegetables! Yes, it appears that the insanity of all a la carte menus at meat markets is going the way of the pig-footed bandicoot, although it is an agonizingly slow process. Mr. Germain has enlisted friends and family to help him, including his daughter, Nicole, and the venerable restaurateur Cloyde Pate. St. Germain bills itself as a traditional neighborhood steakhouse. Dedicated to the good old days in Naples. Im assuming thats a reference to St. George and the Dragon, which closed just down the street in 2012 after more than four decades of serving discerning Neapolitans. I will confess to missing the thronelike chairs and throw pillows that were trademarks of the bygone Stoneys and made dining seem like a regal experience. In their place at St. Germain are standard wood chairs and tables dressed in white linens; there are only a very few booths, making it feel as if the dining room was designed more for profit than for customer comfort. Things move at a smooth and reasonably swift pace at least they did on the weeknight we visited between Christmas and New Years Eve. Our server didnt rush us but checked back a time or two as we perused the wine menu. Settling on a favorite Orin Swifts The Prisoner ($65) we moved on to the menu, which offers a wealth of beef and other meaty entrees but also provides fodder for those who prefer their protein with fins or shells. Cioppino, grouper, salmon, shrimp, twin lobster tails, classic oysters Rockefeller and other seafood options are available and, from those we tasted, get the same level of attention in the kitchen. Our party of three enjoyed a trio of impressive appetizers: a bowl of black mussels in an aromatic white pernod sauce ($12), grilled calamari steaks with roasted red pepper and carrot puree ($14), which were tender and deliciously smoky, and a generously proportioned steakhouse wedge salad ($8) with red onions, tomatoes, a strip of Applewood bacon, chunks of blue cheese and the restaurants signature blue cheese dressing, which was excellent. (A side note: That salad is big enough for two to share as a starter.) The mussels were tender little morsels that paired well with the anise-flavored sauce. The only minuses were the absence of a bowl in which to place the empty shells and the lack of bread customarily served to soak up the savory broth. Fortunately, we had not devoured all the toast points served pre-dinner, along with bread sticks, crackers, olives, carrot and celery sticks and some house made red pepper hummus. (Bread and butter are available if you prefer it). Entrees were as impressive as the appetizers. A 14-ounce veal chop ($46) was cooked perfectly, with a charry exterior yet still moist within. It looked a little barren on the plate, which was adorned with a pickled pepper, half a miniature tomato, a parsley sprig and a flower, but a side of French fries accompanied the chop in their own container. Hot, crisp and lightly salted, the fries needed no enhancement. Prime rib is touted as a house specialty made from Mr. Pates signature recipe. It comes in two sizes: 12 ounces ($28) and 16 ounces ($36). Although the website states these are carved and served tableside, my 12-ounce cut came from the kitchen and I didnt see any tableside service taking place. Perhaps they will add that as the restaurant gets more established. The prime rib was a good choice, the meat richly flavored, juicy and cooked just as ordered, accompanied by lively horseradish sauce and a baked potato that came with large dollops of butter and sour cream. Our seafood lover was equally pleased by his grouper ($36), a tender filet in a tangy-sweet pomegranate beurre blanc served with jasmine rice and broccolini. We also ordered on shareable one of the 11 vegetables you can order a la carte. We skipped the $18 lobster mac and cheese and instead sampled the srirachaglazed brussels sprouts ($12). They were tender-crisp and had just a hint of glaze that added zest but not heat and went nicely with all of our entrees. A pistachio and cherry bread pudding ($7) was disappointingly bland. A slice of creamy Key lime pie ($7) was the better of the two desserts. Even in its early days, St. Germain is showing polish and style. With its array of offerings from land and sea, its easy to feel bullish about this new steakhouse. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com St. Germain Steakhouse>> Hours: 4:30-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 4:30-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers/salads $8-$14; entrees, $25-$54; shareables (veggies), $7-$18 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: Conventional tables indoors and on patio, at the bar and high tops in the bar >> Specialties of the house: Steak >> Volume: Moderate >> Parking: Free lot with valet parking >> Website: www.stgermainsteakhouse.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 403 Bayfront Place, Naples; 435-9353 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYBlack grouper with broccolini and jasmine rice was as well prepared as the meats.

Kalea Bay is a gated, resort-lifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. More than three months ago it celebrated the topping off of its first residential high-rise tower which 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. 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, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. 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. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, stated Wilson. 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. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the 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. Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also 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-squarefoot 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 adultsonly 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. Above: The residences in the 22-story tower at Kalea Bay offer spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico. The 88,000-square-foot clubhouse features three separate pools, a deck bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant and an Internet cafe.

The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, plus pickleball courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center.

JAXI introduces ONEnew boutique waterfront condominium to be built in the Historic Fort Myers River DistrictJAXI, developer of the 32-story Allure luxury condominium to be built in the Historic Fort Myers River District, has announced plans to develop ONE, a new boutique condominium to rise on the Caloosahatchee River next door to Allure. Designed by world-renowned architects Behar Font & Partners, ONE will be a 16-story tower featuring 26 exclusive condominium residences with pricing from the low $500,000s to over $2 million. The boutique tower will feature two-and three-bedroom residences ranging from 1,500 to 2,286 square feet. ONE will also include two penthouses spanning from 3,900 square feet to over 5,000 square feet, one of which is already reserved. Several interested buyers at Allure communicated to us that they were looking for a spacious riverfront residence in a boutique building that would be completed and ready for occupancy sooner than Allure, so we listened to them and decided to develop ONE to meet their needs, says JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero. We expect to begin construction on ONE by the middle of this year with an estimated completion in late 2018, he adds. In addition to listening to feedback from buyers, the developers are also committed to the long-term success of the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District. We believe very strongly in the continued growth and popularity of this tropical urban paradise which is clear by our continued presence in this market with the introduction of ONE, says Caballero. Luxurious features at ONE include private entrance elevators, 10to 14-foot ceilings, porcelain flooring, natural gas ranges, five-burner cooktop, double oven, quartz countertops in chefinspired kitchens, and floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive balconies, and large walk-in wardrobes. The interiors for ONE will be inspired by ADRIANA HOYOS DESIGN STUDIO. The work of Hoyos and her international design firm has been featured in Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Florida Design, and Luxe Magazine, to name a few. The firms 27 plus years of experience spans the globe from the U.S., France, United Kingdom, Panama, Mexico, and the Caribbean, to South America and beyond. The firm has delivered interiors for international hoteliers such as TRUMP, Starwood, Swissotel, Marriott and Hilton. In addition to all of the enviable unit amenities, ONE will feature indulgent building amenities including: a heated cascading Infinity-edge pool with waterfall overlooking the water; a serene landscaped riverfront promenade connected to Allure; a fitness room with interactive virtual on-demand fitness classes; a club room with bar; a pet grooming room; indoor and outdoor yoga studios; fire pits and a relaxing sandy beach; concierge services; high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi in all public areas; and assigned covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access. Just like Allure, ONEs prime location in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, put residents in a vibrant neighborhood that is continuing to thrive and evolve. Offering the best of arts, culture, and entertainment, while combining tropical urbanism and small town charm, the Historic Fort Myers River District has become extremely attractive to visitors and local residents alike. With over 50 cafes, bars and restaurants, the pedestrian and pet-friendly historic downtown offers unlimited options for dining and nightlife to suit any taste. Arts and culture abound in the River District where the brick streets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. Sales for ONE will be conducted from the beautiful Allure sales gallery located on the first floor of the Fort Myers City Pier building at 1300 Hendry Street.

2016 year of milestones at Rontos Naples SquareIn fourth quarter, 2013, The Ronto Group received final approval from the City of Naples for the development of Naples Square, a community at the intersection of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. Since then, Rontos vision of a walkable, bikeable community that would bring a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South has transformed how people live in Naples downtown district. That vision continues to unfold, and was marked by numerous milestones in 2016. In July, 2014, Ronto broke ground on Naples Square Phase I. By January, 2016, just 18 months later, Naples Squares first residents were moving in and Ronto announced the completion of the communitys three initial fully-furnished models in the Phase I building. The models remain open for guided tours with a sales associate. Throughout 2016, construction of the Phase II building that started in November, 2015 progressed at a rapid pace. Now, 73 Phase II residences are on schedule for completion next month, and less than 10 of the Phase II residences remain available for purchase. As the Naples Square lifestyle continued to captivate homebuyers, Ronto introduced its Phase III offering in March, 2016. Eight Phase III floor plans ranging from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air are base-priced from $695,000 to $1,550,000. The one and two story, two and three bedroom plus den plans feature newly designed and re-named iterations of the Phase I residences and showcase lightfilled, open concept living areas and open-air balconies. Twenty reservations worth more than $25 million have been processed for Phase III residences. Six of the eight floor plans remain available. Named recipient of the Naples Daily News 2016 Peoples Choice Award for Best Developer, Ronto has been committed to the notion that choice, finish, and ambiance matter at Naples Square. The Phase III floor plans are suited to individuals, empty-nesters, retirees, and families as a full-time residence or as a pied-a-terre. The residences will present the luxurious finishes that are Rontos hallmark at Naples Square, including porcelain tile flooring in the living areas, kitchens and baths, 8-foot solid core interior doors, 8-foot exterior and sliding glass doors, lever-style door hardware, 8-inch baseboards, 7-inch crown molding per plan, ventilated wood shelving in the bedroom, linen and pantry closets, and separate laundry rooms with a Whirlpool Duet front load washer and dryer and a utility sink in most plans. Phase IIIs open kitchens will feature an appliance package with a gas or electric cooktop and hood and a wall mounted oven and microwave. European frameless construction, full-overlay cabinetry with a variety of door profiles, finish selections and hardware, a stainless steel, undermount sink with a pull-out spray faucet, and multiple granite and quartz countertop options that are three centimeters thick are included. The master baths feature marble-topped vanities with dual sinks, large showers with glass enclosures, soaking tubs with most floor plans, and a separate water closet room. Phase III residents will enjoy a courtyard amenity deck with a 780-square foot pool that is 29% larger than the pools in the Phase I and Phase II buildings. Gas grills and seating areas with firepits will enhance the outdoor cooking and socializing experience. A club room and terrace will open to the pool area and include a bar, television, billiards room, and a furnished fire pit area on the courtyard level. Other amenities include a fitness center, secure under-building parking, and bicycle storage within the garage. Naples Square has enhanced the look and feel of Naples downtown district. The communitys architecture and site plan by Matthew Kragh, AIA, of MHK Architecture & Planning ties Naples Square into the fabric of the Old Naples street grid system and into current and future plans of the Naples Pathway Committee and the City of Naples. Pavered streetscapes and sidewalks, including fountains at each of Naples Squares signature roundabouts that were completed in 2016, have transformed existing city streets to create a cohesiveness that unites every element of downtown. Vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic can now flow from 10th Street to Bayfront on a redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South between 10th and Goodlette-Frank Road within Naples Square. The landscape design along 3rd Avenue South was created by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. Andrea has brought a park-like ambiance to Naples Square while merging the pavered roadways, entry water features, and the fountain roundabouts with Washingtonia and Medjool Date palm trees and a mix of plantings. Oak trees will ultimately create a canopy to provide shade and soften the building mass. Plantings include Clusia, Variegated Dwarf Schefflera, and Bougainvillea. Asian Jasmine, a carpet-like ground cover, is used in the pedestrian areas. Naples Squares key intersections, crossings, and building entry features are identified by tall palms. Building corners that are adjacent to the communitys roundabouts are softened by tall, scattered height Washingtonia palms. The development of Naples Square is indicative of a national trend toward transforming downtown areas from simply serving as attractive destinations to places where people can be fully engaged in every aspect of city life on a day-to-day, walkable basis. This type of walkable lifestyle is especially attractive to Baby Boomers and retirees who put a premium on active, healthy living and convenience. Naples Square is providing that lifestyle. Visit the Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road South downtown or visit Naples Square online at NaplesSquare.com. Above: Fashioned after the Phase I Alton floor plan and base-priced at $695,000, the thoughtfully designed Phase III Astoria great room plan at Naples Square offers 1,460 square feet of living space, an increase of 15% when compared to the Phase I Alton. Left: Base-priced at $1,150,000, the Phase III Dover floor plan at Naples Square features three bedrooms, a den, three baths, a great room and dining room, an island kitchen, and an L-shaped balcony that wraps around the corner of the building.

2 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGNER Q&AJENNIFER STEVENSWith more than 30 years of experience in interior design, Jennifer Stevens, senior design director of Romanza Interior Design, has perfected clean, contemporary style in Southwest Florida. Luxe Livings Michael Korb talks to her about the roots of her design. Q: Was there a specific moment when you knew you wanted to be a designer? A: I was always interested in art and architecture. A good friend of mine, a landscape architect, recommended I take a look at interior design as a career path in my early college years, and I landed on something I was passionate about. The process of using materials, space and various decorative elements in combination to create a living space resonated with me. I was hooked. Q: Do you have a specific style that you are known for? If so, how do you describe it? A: More than a specific style, I want the spaces I design to evoke a sense of comfort and livability at the same time as they provide an aesthetic impact. My best work is reflected in spaces that combine interesting materials and some dramatic artwork or accessories as statement pieces in a way that creates a welcoming feel. Q: Whats your background? Where did you learn your craft? SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 ...makes clean lines comfortable and inviting Mixing antique and polished metals along with accents of black and teal against white and neutral gray backdrops make this living space dramatic yet elegant. Metallic finishes are introduced in the foyer and continue throughout the space, including the great room featuring satin brass and aged gold surfaces. Statement art and accessory pieces create distinct memory points.

4 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q&AFrom page 2A: I have a degree in interior design from Michigan State University, and am NCIDQ certified and licensed in the state of Florida. I have worked primarily in Florida, but over my 30-year career work has taken me to many locations throughout the southeast United States, to many portions of the east coast and as far away as British Colombia for a private residence for longtime clients. Q: What are the steps you go through in order to feel you understand exactly what your client is looking for? A: I ask lots of questions. It helps me to understand how my clients live and who they will be sharing their living spaces with. What resonates with them aesthetically? How do they use various spaces? What mood do they wish to create? How formal or informal is their lifestyle? What elements are most important to them to reflect in each space? I get to know my clients throughout the entire process of designing their home, which guides the selections I make for them. Q: Are there a few emerging trends that youre excited about? A: Living and working in south Florida we get to use wonderful pieces of outdoor furniture that are both sculptural and functional. The continuing trend of more clean-lined furnishings is great. The use of a variety of metal finishes in combination keeps it interesting. Another favorite trend is the use of layered lighting and simple drywall shapes to accentuate ceilings. Above: Ms. Stevens used specialty ceiling treatments combined with contemporary lighting to create dramatic imagery in this kitchen. Additional elements include a freestanding island breakfast bar and glacier-finished maple perimeter cabinetry with pure white quartz countertops paired with a crystal white backsplash. Above: Moving, illuminated water indulges the senses, creating a relaxing soundtrack and the ambience of a personal resort. Linear elements are both simple and dynamic by design. A raised weatherproof wood plank deck is nestled within a fringe of palm trees, enhancing the resort feeling with a cozy day bed. Left: A serene color palette of blues, aqua and sands evokes a sense of comfort and relaxation. Light hardwood French oak Provence flooring is showcased throughout the space.

8 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSome spaces call out to be made over. Somethings just a little off. But in the case of this Bay Colony home, it was more than a little something. The space felt small, confining, clutter ed and above all, da ted. After all, like so many other homes in the area, it had lived its life as a 1980s rendition of a Mediterranean-style villa. Luckily, its new owners werent willing to live in Olive Gardens corporate housing for any longer than they had to and called Judith Liegeois Designs and Herscoe Hajjar Architects to make some magic happen. And did they ever. If not for the barrel ceiling, it would be hard to believe this is the same place. Yet, the renovations could be characterized as minor, thanks to Herscoe Hajjar Architects addition through subtraction. Gone from the main space are the hip shelves that ran along the top of the walls, allowing for a cleaner, less dated look. Also, the architects built out a wall in the dining room and created inset consoles that deliver a more sophisticated look. The new homeowners knew that the villa in its original state suffered from inappropriate stylistic flaws, says Rob Herscoe. And that is to say that the new owners had eyes. Our clients were interested in updating their new home and customizing it to their own personal style, says Ms. Liegeois. They had definite ideas for the kitchen and bathrooms specifically. They wanted to create a more refined environment. Ms. Liegeois was asked to bring the home to a more sophisticated and classic modern aesthetic and to incorporate many of the personal treasures (antique pieces, etc.) the homeowners had collected. They also have a significant art collection, so placement was a priority for them. We always take the clients lifestyle and personal preferences as the most significant part of the project when designing a home, says Ms. Liegeois. Communication between us and our clients is essential and extremely personal. In this particular case, both the husband and wife were very involved in MAKEOVERClean and freshJudith Liegeois Designs and Herscoe Hajjar Architects turn a dated Mediterranean into a showstopper LORI HAMILTON / COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Though the footprint of the space changed very little, small architectural modifications removal of the faux columns, reduction of hip shelves along the top of the walls, a monochromatic paint scheme and bright, wide-plank flooting transformed the family room. Right: New cabinets, crown molding and hidden refrigerator doors take the kitchen from forgettable to modern, but its the large-scale use of beautiful Carrera marble as counter surface, backsplash and waterfall edge island that brings in the wow factor.Before BeforeSEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 10 IMAGINE.

And while the living and dining areas may garner significant Ooos and Ahhs from guests for their brilliantly clean and simple statements, the new kitchen has also been transformed with dramatic Carrera marble throughout. And we mean throughout. From the new waterfall edge island to the backsplash and beyond, the clean white and gray surface makes a powerful statement that is thoroughly modern and elegant at the same time. Truly transformative.

12 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY A Talis Park beauty reflects the homeowners time in Southeast AsiaAMBER FREDERICKSEN / COURTESY PHOTOSg Inviting FROM EVERY ANGLE BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentI had a college professor who used to talk on and on about intertextuality and how that concept could be applied to life. According to him, and probably Jean-Paul Sartre, every waking second impacts and influences our future in one form or another. It makes sense when you think about it. And a perfect example of it is this lovely four bedroom, 4-bath home in Talis Park. Completed last year, it represents the tastes of style of its owners, Rafael and Lillian Guaty, who spent years working and living in Tokyo and Hong Kong. When we got here we had just come from Asia, says Mr. Guaty. We lived there 11 years and we lived in California in the interim for a little bit, with that Spanish style with the arches we wanted Above: If youre looking for a dramatic entrance, youll be hard-pressed to nd something more engaging than the one at this 4,800-square-foot under air (6,000 total under roof) property built by Harwick Homes and designed by McHarris Planning & Design. Left: Though the homeowners time in Southeast Asia is re ected throughout the home, perhaps it is best showcased in the master bath, which features an open-air shower and sculptural soaking tub.
to go to a more open concept with some traces of Asian. But the primary vision was for it to be open. And to bring the indoors out and the outdoors in. To accomplish their goal and create the perfect space, they enlisted the help of Mark Smith, president of luxury homebuilder Harwick Homes. Mr. Smith had started the design of a spec home with Joe McHarris of McHarris Planning & Design that made water a major feature viewable from the great room. When Mr. Guaty saw the plan, he suggested they move the water feature to make it a focal point from the foyer and they were off to the races. When I saw that I basically said, That has to be the centerpiece of the house, the homeowner says, adding, I think we went through about 23 different versions of the (architectural) plan. And after what all parties enthusiastically call an enjoyable collaboration, the finished product is a gorgeous creation that subtly reminds the homeowners of their time in Asia. In fact, perhaps nowhere is that more evident than in the master bath, where the Guatys wanted more of that in-andout look that is so prevalent in the East. We have been to a lot of hotels and properties in Southeast Asia Vietnam, Bali and they all had a bathroom outside, he says. But we said, How do we do that in Florida with the bugs? Thats where Mark came in and said, Well come in and put up a screen. Theres trellis there that you cant see with screen, so you feel the outside, but not a single bug gets through. And the glass doors are retractable into the wall, really giving a sense of being one with nature. Theres even a bamboo tree growing in the shower. A free-standing tub rests alongside those sliders, so when the doors are open, its as if youre in the bath outdoors. In addition, the Guatys knew they didnt want a formal living room theyd had them before in the majority of their 22 previous homes (correct, they moved a lot) and felt they were a waste of space. Nobody ever sits there, Mr. Guaty says. In too many Florida homes, he adds, you walk in the front door and into the living room. It may have a pool as a backdrop or it may not, but nobody ever sits there. We wanted to shift that focal point to the entry the water feature with the palm trees and then the rest of the pool in the back. Its a nice size foyer where you can greet people, but it maintains the privacy of your kitchen and family room and dining room, says Mr. Smith. And the outdoor living space is just really dramatic. To take full advantage of seeing as much of the outside as possible from inside, they chose commercial floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for an unobstructed view of that pool area with its palm trees. I think this is the first time Harwick used them in a home, says Mr. Guaty. And to be honest with you, its one of those things where you kind of hold your breath. Because I know the look, but I didnt want it to look like were coming into a 7-Eleven. But theyre perfect. People walk in here and they have no idea theyre commercial. Another highlight that features clean lines is the contemporary wine cellar. Again utilizing a commercial-style glass door, the refrigerated room uses stainless steel racks, making it a veritable work of art. And speaking of art, the interior design was handled completely by Mrs. Gauty and features a refined edit of spaces that allow perfectly for the couples Asian art pieces to be on display. Its a lovely blend of watercolors that dance ideally with the outdoor area. The Asian experience overseas really filtered our likes toward the clean lines look, Mr. Guaty says. Symmetry was important. Clean lines. That was the goal. Everything worked out. People ask me if we would change anything and I say, No. We love the whole house. There is nothing we would change.

A modern wine cellar encased in glass can be seen on the far wall.

The water surrounding the trees is just 18 inches deep.

EXPERT Q&A Lynne Stambouly firstname.lastname@example.orgAsk the LIGHT LADY Known as The Light Lady since 1984, Lynne Stambouly is senior lighting designer at Lighting Firsts Specialty Lighting Division in Southwest Florida. Her background includes owning her own lighting showroom, being the goto lighting designer for the largest interior design rms in Southwest Florida and serving as president of the Naples chapter of the Interior Design Society. 28801 South Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs, FL 34134 | 239.939.6900 | LightingDesignNaples.com | EC#13005050 2016 Sand Dollar Award-Winning Project: Big Island Builders, Inc. 2016 ASID Design Excellence Winner: Koastal Design Group Kira Krmm & Co. Q: Im looking for lighting that will really make my home stand out something dynamic. What would you suggest? A: Light as art becomes a focal point in someones home. Its a dramatic feature that creates depth and interest. Everybody has art on their walls, but when you create it with light, its unique to that home. Often theyre small little xtures, but when you put them in a certain pattern and in a certain quantity, they become more theres a synergistic effect. Of course, we tend to use LEDs in these cases because people tend to want to use their light walls all the time, day and night, and it doesnt create any extra heat or use much wattage. Were working on one right now that is going straight up a wall to a 28-foot ceiling. But you can do it on an 8-foot ceiling, say in a narrow foyer, to create some interest. It really is dramatic.Q: My walk-in closet lighting seems to just throw shadows. Can closets actually have decent lighting or is that a dream?A: Well, the owner of the closet above wanted it to be very well lit but didnt want to see the light source. She wanted a crystal chandelier, so we incorporated in-cabinet lighting, under-cabinet lighting, over-cabinet lighting, and 2-inch adjustable LEDs angled toward the clothes. And each one is on its own switch, so she can do whatever she wants in there. Chandeliers alone cause tremendous striation because of the crystals, so we increased the lumen level of the LEDs to correct that. So not only can it be done, but it can be done beautifully.Q: Why is it important to consult with a professional lighting designer when replacing or putting new lighting in your home? A: Lighting is currently in the midst of an LED technology revolution, and it is important to understand the way that these changes can affect your home and your lifestyle. So many factorscolor temperature, brightness, size, lumens, energy efciency, the nal expenseshould be considered when selecting new lighting. Additionally, knowledge of safety and building codes is essential. For example, the 12-foot chandelier (above, left) connects to a 32-foot ceiling and it gives you just as much drama from down below as you get from the second oor. And we tted it with LEDs so theres no heat and we shouldnt have to change a bulb for 20 years. A professional lighting designer takes all of these important factors into consideration, as well as assists with the decorative decisions, so that you are pleased with your investment for years to come.

20 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen my parents started Scan Design back in 1969, it was to bring Scandinavian sensibility, cleaner lines and calmer environments into the U.S., says Jesper Knudsen, who along with his brother, Peter, and another partner, own Scan Design, a Danish furniture and design retailer that recently opened its eighth and ninth stores in Naples and Fort Myers respectively. They had been eyeing the Southwest Florida market for some time, but hesitated because of logistics. They could justify the three-hour drive to Miami to deliver furniture from their Orlando warehouse, but the five hours to Naples was just too much. Then they heard that Denmark Interiors was looking to close its showrooms in Naples and Fort Myers, and the final piece of the puzzle fell into place Denmark had its own warehouse in Fort Myers. At 10,000 square feet, the Naples location is a small footprint for the business compared to its other locations. But it gives Scan Design a place to test the waters before considering going larger. Regardless, shoppers are met with a fine selection of unique styles that not only look good, but feel great, too. One of my biggest things is comfort and ergonomics, Jesper says. There is a lot of contemporary out there, but the quality and comfort just isnt there.

We really pride ourselves on balancing those two things. Look no further than the spectacular Omega dining table thats front-andcenter when you walk into the store. Its both visually stunning and a testament to precision. The company sells everything for the interior of a home other than paint, tile and window treatments. And they have a surprisingly large selection of decorative art, which is bought by the Knudsen brothers mother, Lis. Shes been doing that since the beginning, Jesper says. And my brother (who handles merchandising and display) is in charge of putting it all together. Its that sense of family that has kept the business growing for all these years. Its all about the service level, says Jesper. Recently in our south Orlando store there was an elderly customer sitting on a sofa. I said hello to her and asked if she wanted a bottle of water or anything and she said, No, Im just here with my daughter and granddaughter. I bought furniture from you 40 years ago. My daughter bought furniture from you. And now my granddaughter is buying furniture from you. It is a privilege to be able to serve people that put meaning into those types of things. Its a wonderful feeling. And it happens quite often.

22 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comAfter enjoying and often overindulging in all the holiday goodies, our focus now turns toward shedding the extra baggage we accumulated and concentrating on getting into shape. Trust us, its the perfect time to plan a spa getaway. Travelers who are committed to getting healthy may want to consider a trip to a spa resort in Miami, where the sunseeking, health-conscious folks from all over the globe congregate. Tops on the list for the serious get-inshapers is the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa (www.pritikin.com), where guests can experience an all-inclusive oneor two-week stay or even a three-day weekend health retreat that offers a glimpse of the program. Guests attend health lectures by top experts including medical doctors, exercise physiologists and nutritionists, healthy cooking courses with a top trained no salt chef, and unique and innovative exercise courses. The newly renovated resort has luxurious amenities with suites of varying sizes, indoor and outdoor pools perfect for relaxing, and renowned spa treatments all on 650 acres of meticulously manicured grounds. Studies show that after a three-week stay at Pritikin, participants achieve an average weight loss of 11 pounds as well as lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and lower blood glucose, says Jennifer Weinberg, the resorts marketing manager. Pritikin provides knowledge and tools to our guests so that they can take what they learn during a stay home, and apply the techniques to their lives for the long run, in order to live a healthy life naturally, Ms. Weinberg says. The experience can be transformative, guests say, and even a three-day stay can get them off to a good start. If Pritikin sounds a bit too intense for you, consider a getaway to one of Miamis other resort spas. Here are a few we like: The Palms AVEDA Spa ( www.thepalmshotel.com/spa): Voted as Readers Choice by Spa Finder, The Palms Spa offers a range of revitalizing services for men, women and kids.
