C1 BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekl.comFollowing in the tradition of suffragettes dating back to the 19th century, residents in Collier and Lee counties will march for womens rights from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, in downtown Naples. Scheduled as a sanctioned sister event to the Womens March on Washington, organizers are expecting up to 600 registrants to raise their voices in response to recent election rhetoric. I guess there are many reasons to do it, but mostly its just to let the world know that there are still people who care about women, said organizer Lois Cohen. We cant let people think women are going to sit there and let things happen to them. From reproductive rights to raising the minimum wage, Ms. Cohen and her counterparts are concerned that the current political tone threatens issues that pertain to the social progress of not only women, but all minority groups. However, she is quick to stress that the Naples march is not politically motivated. Instead, everyone is welcome to peacefully participate in what she characterizes as a forwardlooking awareness event. Were certainly not partisan, unless you consider social justice political, she said. But were moving forward to see what we can do in the future. Maybe we can do something for future generations and help raise awareness for them. We cant do anything today or tomorrow, but in two or four years it might make a difference.

Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | Coastal SOPHISTICATION When life lands you on your butt, on live TV BY RANDALL KENNETH JONESSpecial to Florida WeeklyShow Me by Naples/Marco Island writer, actor and creative consultant Randall Kenneth Jones is a compilation of interviews and anecdotes gleaned from Mr. Jones conversations with celebrities, business leaders, journalists, entertainers and sports legends all of whom have a connection to Southwest Florida. Heres an edited excerpt from the book about the time Mr. Jones and his husband, Derek Wakefield, spent with former WINK-TV weekend anchor and reporter Hoda Kotb and her NBC Today partner-in-wine, Kathie Lee Gifford. Though my interview with Hoda took place over the phone, when she learned that Derek and I planned to be in New York two weeks later, she graciously invited us to be her guests in the NBC studio at a live broadcast of the Today segment with her and Kathie Lee Gifford. As the show entered its last commercial break, a flurry of activity ensued in preparation for the goodbye segment, including the placement of a curved bench a single set piece made possible by the merger of three independent units. When I happened to glance in Hodas direction, she appeared to be gesturing for Derek and me to join them on set. And then came the words of warning: Ten, nine, eight Once again, the countdown to go live had begun. My single thought? There is a camera up there calling my name! Hoda baby, Im coming! As I arrived at my spot on the bench, I swiftly turned, propelled my backside toward the bench and made contact. And the bench began going and going and going The set piece was on wheels. As I careened toward the back wall of the studio, Derek turned to sit. And he did. Directly on the floor. Derek go boom. And we were live. So yes, we are now on the air. KLG and Hoda are all smiles. Im somewhat tucked away in the rear of the shot. Derek is clearly visible, having fallen squarely on his tush. But seriously, how was I to anticipate that the combination of my brisk speed, momentum and, yes, my somewhat significant butt size was poised to potentially destroy the Today set? Before a staggering number of television viewers, no less? Ah, but lets look at this scenario through Dereks eyes. Here was the man I had spent more than 20 years of my life with flat on his bum on national television and what did we do? We did what Derek always does: We laughed. We laughed hard and we laughed long. I mean, what else is there to do at that point? Though the television audience was treated to a whimsical Man down! from both Hoda and KLG after they confirmed the absence of broken bones and/or blood loss, the pair continued as if nothing had happened. (Ah, professionalism!) Thankfully, the camera cut away from our apocalypse to allow Derek to regain his composure. However, in Dereks eyes, it was just a blip. Yes, I know he would have preferred it had been my butt on the line, so to speak. Im also aware his preference would have been for the television audience to see the FULL STORY, including the bull-in-achina-shop part where my instinctual lust for the limelight, coupled with my ass, inadvertently caused his disaster. But he didnt crawl under a rock. He was utterly unfazed. The elusive full story is simply not always on display, no matter what we do. Sometimes, the only option is to accept what we know to be true and just move on. His later quip? Its not like Im Steve Harvey and I announced the wrong winner of Miss Universe. But Dereks real secret? Despite lifes ever-distracting hurdles, Derek, who had just become talk show road kill, has never lost sight of his goal that life should be lived with the same passion and excitement as live TV. To him, when you fall down, getting back up is the only option literally and figuratively. Show Me also includes Mr. Jones interviews with the likes of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Erin Brockovich, Barbara Corcoran, Janet Evanovich, Sue Monk Kidd, Sonny Jurgensen, Suze Orman, Peggy Post, Willard Scott, Vanessa Williams and 100-plus more.

The womens march on the nations capital is taking shape, the result of a grassroots campaign to rally in support of womens rights. The event is Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trumps inauguration. It isnt billed as an anti-Trump protest. Rather, the organizers say its aim is to send a message to all levels of government that participants expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities. Organizers think the march will be the largest demonstration associated with Trumps inauguration, a robust dissent opposing the normalization of the transfer of power to a man antithetical to American and democratic values. Trump lost the popular vote by a wide margin and the march is to remind him he doesnt have a mandate to undo what it has taken more than 200 years to achieve. The breadth is stunning of those whom Trump has threatened, demonized and insulted on his way to the White House. He has proven himself to be an equal opportunity bigot. The march is expected to draw Americans of every stripe and hue. Among those Trump has bullied, women hold a special place in his jaded heart. They have borne his scorn, disrespect and sexual predations. The very idea of such a man occupying the Oval Office undermines the historic commitment to gender equity women have fought to achieve since the earliest days of the republic. Gender equity is the bridge uniting women and men in common cause across multiple issues. As for women, Trumps election is a stunning reversal of fortune and threat to womens rights. Ironically, it was enabled by the 42 percent of women and the 53 percent of white women who voted for the man. All those women who said they wouldnt vote for Hillary just because she was a woman? They didnt. Instead of a woman breaking the glass ceiling and winning the White House, feminists saw America elect a misogynist and self-proclaimed sexual predator. It was a shocker. All the myths of womens solidarity on behalf of protecting and supporting gender equality went down the toilet. Women voted for Trump despite his racism, sexism and misogyny. They immolated themselves on the pier of the mans imagined superiority to prove they could. Time will tell if they will live to regret it. Their daughters will be the ones to tell them. Meanwhile, women supporting Trump will sign up for the after-party. But at least 100,000 of their sisters will be in the streets instead. It is only a natural that a woman was the catalyst for the march. Like many others, Trumps election was a bridge too far for Rebecca Shook. She could not accept that a man with like him could ascend to the Oval Office. The retired lawyer and grandmother said in an interview with Reuters, I was in such shock and disbelief that this type of sentiment could win. We had to let people know that is not who (we) are. With her friends help, she created an events page on Facebook proposing a womens march on Washington during Trumps inauguration. Then, she called it a day and took her dismay to bed. Within 24 hours, 10,000 people signed up. The idea snowballed nationwide. It encountered speed bumps along the way. The diversity of the marchs initial leadership was challenged. Others accused the organizers of appropriating for their own use the historic movement of African-American women to win racial equality for their sex. Its a sore point. Issues of race and racism within the Womens Movement are old as the movement itself. They stem from the failure of white women to actualize common cause with women of color in their fight for racial justice. The goal is essential to both causes. In my experience, race and gender discrimination share context in matters of oppression. One is never present without the existence of the other though they manifest themselves differently. And both forms are inseparable in their consequence. They foreclose and deny its victims of a lifetime of opportunities based on the accident of ones birth. It is a disparagement of possibilities without end and an assignment of worth without exit. The class division among those who suffer systemic discrimination reflects how society splits the hairs. The march organizers have since taken pains to course-correct. Dozens of organizations are signed on as partners. A thousand buses will bring participants to Washington. originating from at least 41 states. In Florida, coordinators have formed a statewide network and multiple local chapters to help manage the logistics and activities. They expect to draw up to 20,000 participants from Florida. Sister demonstrations also are being held in Florida statewide. Susan B. Anthony once said, You would better educate 10 women into the practice of liberal principles than to organize a thousand on a platform of intolerance and bigotry. Women may have helped elect Trump but the women who didnt will hold him accountable. The reset failurePresident Barack Obama has finally had it with Russia. It only took eight years of cold reality topped off by the Russian interference in the November election to make the outgoing president almost clear-eyed about the Kremlin. Not that Obama is ready to admit error. Asked by George Stephanopoulos if he underestimated Vladimir Putin, Obama said no, he had only missed how cyber hacking could be used to meddle in our electoral system in other words, it was a technical mistake, rather than a fundamental misassessment of a foreign adversary. Perhaps the president can be forgiven for not being more forthright, since it would require acknowledging how spectacularly his reset failed. President Obama began his term with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presenting her Russian counterpart with a (mistranslated) reset button, and ended it watching the Kremlin target Hillary Clintons party and campaign team with no evident respect for U.S. sovereignty or fear of U.S. retaliation. The reset was premised on willful naivet about Russia. Obama thought that misunderstandings and ill will had undermined the U.S.-Russian relationship under George W. Bush (who himself had an early soft spot for Putin), and his defter, reassuring touch would make new memories. In 2010, the White House was patting itself on the back for forging winwin outc omes with Russia. The touching emphasis on mutual interests and respect failed to understand Vladimir Putins motives. How he must have snickered when at a summit in 2012, Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Medvedev that he should relay to Putin to give him space because after the election hed have more flexibility. The Russian leader cared only about power and honor (and riches for himself and his cronies), and was immune to Obamas blandishments. Putin stole the 2011 Russian parliamentary elections anyway. He invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea in 2014 anyway. He intervened in Syria in 2015 and bombed Aleppo to rubble anyway. The Obama administration always made the minimal response, and actually welcomed Russias entry into Syria as part of a face-saving way out of Obamas red line fiasco. It is only now, after the Russian meddling in the November election, that all the apologists for Obamas reset have converted en masse to stalwart Russia hawks after years of accommodation of Moscow. Oh, how they mocked Mitt Romney when he said in 2012 that Russia was our foremost geopolitical rival. And resisted calls to arm Ukraine against the Russian invasion. And took seriously, time and again, the utte rly bootless attempts to cut cease-fire deals with Russia in Syria. Perhaps Russias hacking over the past year would have turned liberals against Moscow no matter what, but one gets the sense that, in their minds, Russias chief offense was taking the wrong side in the election. Now, with Obamas reset in tatters, Donald Trump wants to pursue his own version. Vladimir Putin has a dark view of the United States, so it must be a mystery to him why every new American president is so convinced that he can get along with the Russian, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Trump should learn from Obamas failure, and not replicate it. d o n t u s rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly s t e a v w j

ROOTED IN NAPLESThe curse of the clever canineIt takes one to know one, as they say, and in our family, it takes two dummies to know Dummy, the Springer Spaniel formally known as Jessie. The learning curve with this animal who we brought home as a puppy in April and have lived every day since both rejoicing and regretting that event has been long and steep. Finally, it seems that we have managed to get a handle on our adorable doofus. Her come-to-Jesus moment happened shortly before Christmas, when we came home to find she had spewed all over our new furniture. Copious amounts on couches, throw blankets, pillows and rugs in two rooms posed several challenges to properly cleaning that Ill spare our dear readers, but suffice it to say it took several days and many dollars to rid our house of her emissions. What? How? Why? you might ask. Because we are stupid. In a softhearted (and soft-headed) attempt to alleviate her anxiety about us leaving each day, we thought we could leave her uncrated if we were mindful enough to close doors and clear counters before our departure. What dumb little babies we were. On that particular day despite repeatedly displaying that shes incapable of checking herself Jessie opened the pantry to eat a pound of butter Id left to soften for baking. I thought I was so smart to shut it in the pantry instead of leaving it at the back of the counter. Like a child, though, Jessie gets bigger and smarter every day. I suspect that in a year or so, she and our children will marvel at how easy it is to outwit me. Theyll most likely be plotting their own destruction, but it will be so easy to get there! When the kids and I returned home mid-afternoon, the smell greeted us first. I recognized it from the time Jessie ate a tub of sugar scrub from the shower, the time she ate kid medication and the time she ate lip balm. What I didnt recognize was her shame. Rather than running to meet us at the door, she was huddled in the back of her puppy crate which shed outgrown months before and actively avoided and pleading with her dopey brown eyes. She is obviously growing and maturing, unlike her owners. This event was the culmination of two weeks of puppy high jinks. Shed already had an emergency visit to the vet for an allergic reaction and required a $60 phone call to pet poison control that forced us to acknowledge she can clear a counter (and eat ANYTHING she finds) when shes in a snit. We realized, very slowly but very surely, that Jessie would certainly wreck herself and our home if we didnt act. So what did we do? That weekend we wore her out with outdoor playtime and had a proper sized dog crate over-nighted to our house. By the end of the week, shed been cleared for day care and now goes at least once a week. Combined with visits to the dog park every few days and her daily exercise schedule, Jessie doesnt seem to mind her crate as much as she used to. Shes still a criminal annoyance when we get home (look at me!), but its been a month now, and both dog and house are still standing. The kicker is, my husband and I endured two very active toddlers and agree that neither of our children wreaked the havoc Jessie does on our daily life. So let this be a lesson: If you like your stuff, find a dog that is dumber than you are. Dog Training for Dummies was certainly written for people like Lindsey Nesmith. Shell never read it. d p o o p s LINDSEY NESMITH / FLORIDA WEEKLYJessies self-preservation instinct is not strong.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWhy the 2017 United States Presidential Inauguration will be a lot like every previous one and why it will be much different. our heritage of conferring power in a peaceful and orderly manner. The inauguration brings into stark relief how the United States differs from much of the world. No military coups. No preordained results determined by a strongman or a dictator. And, despite the mighty and frightening efforts of Russian hackers in 2016, our elections are remarkably fair and accurate. The inaugural is Americas way as conceived by the framers of the Constitution of wrapping all of these virtues into one neat package that is opened on Jan. 20 in years in which we have a presidential contest. (Inaugural day initially was set for March 4 four months after Election Day to allow for travel time and the final counting of votes. As technology reduced the time for travel and vote counting, it was decided that four months was an unnecessarily long time to wait for the president and vice president to begin their terms. That was the rationale for the 20th Amendment, which was ratified in 1933 and set Jan. 20 as Inauguration Day. The first Jan. 20 inauguration took place in 1937. If Jan. 20 falls on a Sunday a private inauguration is held on that day, followed by a public ceremony on Monday, Jan. 21.) For all of the solemnity and reverence that attends this occasion, history reveals that often the inaugural process is rife with bickering, embarrassing gaffes, crude behavior and a propensity toward grandiosity that is at odds with our egalitarian ideals and inherent sense of decorum. How Trumps inauguration will play out is anyones guess. If past is prologue, we can, at best, expect a ceremony that will feature an imminently forgettable inaugural address. But there could be much worse in store. The sour tone of the transition, the president-elects propensity to indulge in sideshow antics and the deeply polarized nature of American society do not auger well. Past inaugurations have produced unexpected and unpleasant moments. Sure to attract much attention is the role evangelicals and televangelists will play. Paula White and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Detroit are among six faith leaders who have been invited by Trump to participate. These two choices are controversial because White and Jackson belong to a subset of evangelical preachers who espouse what is known as the prosperity gospel. While the faith movement is widely popular, many Christians consider (prosperity preaching to be) heretical, the Associated Press reported. Ministers in the tradition often hold up their own wealth as evidence their teachings work. The AP further noted: The Senate Finance Committee had investigated White and five other prosperity preachers over their spending, but the inquiry ended in 2011 with no penalty for the televangelists. Writing in The Washington Post, Michael Horton, professor of theology at Western Seminary California, highlighted the schism within the Christian community when he delivered this withering assessment: Televangelist White has a lot in common with Trump ... Both are in their third marriage and have endured moral and financial scandal. According to family values spokesman James Dobson ... White personally led (Trump) to Christ. There is no denying that showcasing prosperity preachers is in keeping with the tone and substance of Trumps campaign, which stressed his success as a businessman and often celebrated his affinity for conspicuous consumption. In a statement, White hinted at the tone of the prayer she will offer, saying she would beseech God to richly bless our extraordinary home, the United States of America. Bizarrely, much of the pre-inaugural chatter has been about what role celebrities will play. It agitates Trump to no end that high-profile entertainers like Garth Brooks, Elton John and Celine Dion wanted no part of his inaugural. (For the record, John is a Brit and Dion a French Canadian.) Now, a man who clearly craves the adulation of the famous, the Queens rich kid who desperately desired the respect of the Manhattan and Palm Beach elite, is being denied it, publicly and in humiliating fashion, is how The Daily Beast summed up Trumps celebrity dilemma. As is his wont, Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage. The so-called A list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE! If by PEOPLE Trump meant the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Rockettes (at least one of whom openly balked at performing at the event), then he got his wish.

On Friday, Jan. 20, barring the unforeseen, Donald J. Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States, a circumstance that may delight or horrify, depending on your political inclination. Whatever your leaning, it matters not. The electoral system has worked its will, and now it is time to enact the results. The outgoing president, Barack Obama, will be there, bestowing by his presence a legitimacy to the entire process. Odds are high that this will not be Obamas happiest day.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NEWS A9Trump and his supporters that the decidedly A list Beyonce performed at Obamas 2013 inauguration, although there was considerable embarrassment later when it was revealed she had lipsynched the national anthem. The best Trump could muster for this high-profile duty was a 16-year-old singer, Jackie Evancho, who achieved a small measure of fame via the Americas Got Talent television show. That this issue of celebrities has become a topic of heated and prolonged conversation indicates how the inaugural process has begun a slow slide toward becoming democracys greatest reality television show. Trump, of course, is a master of reality television, and his inaugural could hasten this unseemly decline Trump has told associates that he expects the television ratings for his swearing-in to be higher than usual. Obamas first inaugural in 2009 attracted 37.7 million viewers. Four years later, his second drew a television audience of just 20.5 million. The figures pale in comparison to the 84 million people who last September watched the first debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton. THE CENTERPIECE OF EVERY INAUGURAtion is the incoming presidents address. Trump pledges to write his own speech, departing from the standard practice of leaning heavily on experienced, professional speechwriters. If Trump does indeed personally pen his remarks, we are likely to be treated to an inaugural presentation the likes of which we have yet to see. He wants to write the inaugural himself, Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has discussed the speech with Trump, told CNN. He doesnt want it to be long. He would like it to be a shorter one. He doesnt want people standing out in the cold. Brinkley also confirmed that television ratings are extremely important to Trump. You know, weve had high ratings for the debates, Brinkley said. I think hes starting to get into the zone that were looking at how this inaugural is going to be watched, and hes going to put a lot of effort into it. Typically, inaugural pronouncements are excruciatingly boring and rarely edifying. This is not a recent development. As The Economist pointed out in 1913, The presidents of the United States have gotten into the habit of emptying a load of words into the streets and calling them inaugural addresses. Most of the speeches are terrible, Robert Lehrman, a former speechwriter for Al Gore, has observed. Even the ones we remember. I dont think there is any reporter working anywhere that couldnt write language as crisp or concrete as the majority of them. The late Paul Boller, a history professor who specialized in inaugural addresses, read, analyzed and dissected every inaugural speech from George Washington to Barack Obama and found there was not one humorous sentence in any of them. None. Historians agree that a signature line not the entire body of the text is what separates inaugural speeches. If an incoming president can find that one memorable sentence or phrase, then history will take note. To date, the consensus is that there have been four such noteworthy moments. The first came in 1801, when Jefferson sought to heal the wounds inflicted during a ferociously dirty and divisive election. We are all Republicans; we are all Federalists. The next memor able line w as utte red during Abraham Lincolns second inaugural in 1865. As with Jefferson, Lincoln wanted to bring together a nation divided. With malice toward none, with charity for all. In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt knew he needed to calm a nation whose nerves were frayed by the Great Depression. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Finally, John F. Kennedy wanted to strike a hopeful note in 1961 and signal that a new generation had risen to power. To that end, Kennedy appealed to what he believed to be Americas loftiest ideals. My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. The length of inaugural addresses is all over the map, ranging from 130 words for Washingtons second inaugural to the stupefying 8,445 words William Henry Harrison inflicted on his defenseless and shivering audience in 1841. Harrison occupies a special place in the hearts those intrigued by presidential inaugurations. He was the last president who was born as a British subject, the oldest president to be elected at the time and had a grandson, Benjamin Harrison, who served a term as president. He initially gained prominence for his valor fighting Native Americans at the Battle of Tippecanoe. But it was his astoundingly abysmal inaugural performance, and its aftermath, that has cemented his place in presidential lore. It took Harrison nearly two hours to deliver his verbal barrage. Remarkably, the original draft of the speech was far longer. Harrisons friend, Daniel Webster (a noted orator in his own right), tossed out large chunks of the text in what must surely have been one of the most daunting editing jobs in American history. Webster discovered, to his horror, that Harrisons speech dealt mostly with Roman history in general and Roman proconsuls in particular. Upon completing his edit, an exhausted Webster told an acquaintance, I have killed seventeen Roman proconsuls as dead as smelts, every one of them! Harrisons word salad was served on a raw and blustery day, but the 68-year-old presidentelect in an effort to appear robust and vigorous shunned hat and overcoat. Not long after the inauguration, Harrison was struck down by pneumonia and died just one month into his term the shortest presidential tenure ever. Some speculated that Harrisons braving the extreme elements contributed to his demise, but no can prove that. Still, the deliverance of the most dreadful inaugural address ever, coupled with an unexpected death a mere month later, makes the star-crossed Harrison the object of fascination that endures to this day. Trump insists that he wants his remarks to be brief. But what, exactly, does that mean? Reading Trumps mind is a fools errand, but one indication of his thinking is that he has said he admires the addresses delivered by Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Kennedy spoke 1,365 words. Reagans first speech was 2,463 words, his second, 2,564 words. To put this in some sort of perspective, President Obamas 2013 address clocked in at 2,137 words, while his first inaugural effort put forth 2,404 words. THE SPEECH IS DEFINITELY THE THING, BUTit is not the only thing. A presidential inauguration is booby-trapped with innumerable opportunities to screw up. At John Kennedys inauguration, Robert Frost composed an original poem for the occasion. Frost was unable to read his composition because he was blinded by the glare coming off freshly fallen snow. He improvised and recited another poem from memory and then capped it all by dedicating his performance to the president-elect John Finley. In 2009, it was Chief Justice John Rob-SEE INAUGURATION, A10 COURTESY IMAGESLeft: President Obama was sworn in by Chief Justice Roberts on Jan. 21, 2013.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYerts turn to botch things. As The Chicago Tribune reported: Swearing in a new president for the first time, (Roberts) stumbled over the opening words of the oath. President Barack Obama, realizing the minor miscue, paused and then followed the chief justice in repeating the right words slightly out of order. While the fumbling of words might have seemed to be a minor miscue, it raised troubling questions about the legality of the swearing-in, since the presidential oath comes from the Constitution and is meant to be recited precisely and correctly. Taking no chances, Obama was sworn in a second time the next day. Curiously, the words So help me God have been tacked on to the end of the oath. Those words were not set forth in the Constitution and how they worked their way into the tersely worded recitation is a historical mystery. Theres a myth that George Washington added those words to the end of his oath in 1789, Jim B endat, the author of the marvelously readable book Democracys Big Day: The Inauguration of Our Pr esident 1789-2013, told The Washington Post. No one b ack in 1789 ever suggested that, but we do know that by many accounts Chester Arthur in 1881 added those four words and that those words were not added in 1929 by Herbert Hoover. Beginning with FDR in 1933, every president has added those four words. While inaugural balls have a long tradition (the first official ball was held in 1809 with James Madison), another tradition, which resulted in perhaps the wildest scene ever, has been discarded. On March 4, 1829, following the inauguration, Andrew Jackson opened the White House to the public. A thirsty, unruly mob quickly formed, and the presidential residence became more Animal House than White House. The party was so big that the courageous, battle-tested President Jackson fled the scene (out a back door or through a window) as a huge crowd drank heavily, destroyed furniture and china, and even ground cheese into the carpets with their boots, according to an account from the National Constitution Center. Only the promise of more free liquor drew the rabble out of the executive mansion. The account goes on to posit, however, that the wildness of the day may have been exaggerated. But there is no denying that whatever took place at the White House that day hastened the demise of inaugural open houses. THE WEIRD ON AGAIN/OFF AGAIN RELATIONship between Obama and Trump during the transition is confounding. This is largely due to Trumps contradictory and oftentimes puzzling tweets. One day Obama is uncooperative and obstreperous, Trump avers. Yet the next day brings a tweet or a remark praising the president for his graciousness. Do these muddled messages portend an uncomfortable Inauguration Day? Will the two men behave themselves? Whatever the circumstance, it is likely that any contretemps involving Trump and the president are small potatoes when examined in the light of past personal feuds involving ingoing and outgoing presidents. And there have been occasions when these personal feuds carry on through Inauguration Day. The most extreme example was John Adams decision to boycott Thomas Jeffersons inauguration in 1801. The presidential election between Adams, the sitting president, and Jefferson, the vice president, had been exceedingly vitriolic, and it would be years before the two men repaired their relationship. The bad blood between Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower during the 1953 transition and inauguration set a new modern standard for ill will and pettiness. The two men, quite simply, loathed each other. Neither thought the other was qualified to be president, and their dislike was deeply personal. The general doesnt know any more about politics than a pig knows about Sunday, was one of the more genteel comments the blunt-speaking Truman made about Eisenhower, who returned the presidents contempt in kind. I wonder if I can stand sitting next to him, Eisenhower mused as he contemplated Inauguration Day. The hatred between the men (on Inauguration Day) was like a monsoon, Clark Clifford, a longtime Democratic power broker revealed later. Things took a turn for the worse if that was possible in the hours before Eisenhower was sworn in. Truman invited Ike for a cup of coffee at the White House. The president-elect refused. On Inauguration Day, when it is customary for the president-elect to greet the outgoing president before the two depart together for the ceremony, Eisenhower refused not only to enter the White House but even to leave his car to greet Truman before they drove off together, Douglas Brinkley, the presidential historian, said in a column written in 2000. Once thrown together in the automobile, things got really nasty, as reported by The Washintgon Post: Then, in the car on the way to the Capitol, Eisenhower one of the heroes of World War II asked Truman who had released John, Eisenhowers son, from active duty in Korea so he could attend the inauguration. John, a West Pointer, was embarrassed that he had been called home. Truman said he had given the order. Eisenhower was livid. Things were scarcely better during the lead-up to the 1981 inauguration. Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter not only disagreed politically, they shared a visceral dislike of one another. Carter deemed his successor to be shallow, lazy and ignorant. Reagan saw the outgoing president as a rube who was hopelessly out of his league. This animosity was taken to a new level when Nancy Reagan announced that she intended to redecorate the White House. Nothing unusual about that, but what was remarkable and spectacularly disrespectful to the First Family was her suggestion the Carters vacate the residence a few weeks in advance of Inauguration Day so she could get on with the task of spiffing-up the place. Once again, the ride to the swearing-in was not pleasant. Carters Inauguration Day misery was compounded when, during Reagans address, Iran released 52 Americans it had held hostage for 444 days. The hostage crisis had dogged Carters administration and surely contributed to his defeat. Irans decision to set the hostages free on Inauguration Day was seen as a deliberate attempt to further humiliate the departing president. Inauguration Day marks an abrupt end to the outgoing administration. It is jarring to all those involved, but especially so to those who are losing their jobs. The transition is like an epic corporate takeover, but the incoming company does no due diligence and 4,000 of your top employees quit on the same day, explained David Eagles, director of presidential transition at the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service. Staffers remain on duty until the new president has taken the oath. These final hours provide an opportunity for mischief. In 2002, the General Accounting Office, after an investigation, concluded that damage, theft, vandalism and pranks did occur in the White House the previous year as aides and staff people working for President Clinton vacated their offices in advance of George W. Bushs arrival. The GAO pegged the financial cost of this boorish behavior at about $14,000. Nearly $5,000 of that total was required to replace computer keyboards, many of which had missing W keys. Some of the damage, (the GAO) said, was clearly intentional, The New York Times reported. Glue was smeared on desk drawers. Messages disparaging President Bush were left on signs and in telephone voice mail. A few of the messages used profane or obscene language. A repeat of such foolishness seems unlikely. By most accounts, the staffs of Obama and Trump have been working together harmoniously. FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTO HISTORICAL MInutiae, here is an inaugural question courtesy of Jim Bendat, the inauguration expert that is sure to stump all but the most astute. Two presidents have had four inaugurations. Name them. Anyone with a passing acquaintance of presidential history will easily name one of the presidents. That would be Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected to four terms. But who could the second be? No other president, after all, has served more than two terms. Give up? It is Barack Obama. Confused? Well, Bendat has an explanation. In 2009, Obama was inaugurated twice. Once in public, when the chief justice screwedup the oath, and yet again in private, just to make certain the oath met the requirements of the Constitution. In 2013, Jan. 20 fell on a Sunday. A public inauguration is never conducted on Sunday. But a private swearing-in was held and then a public one took place on Monday, Jan. 21. So there you have it. Obama, as with FDR, had four inaugurations. If you choose to watch the inauguration at a tavern, pull that bit of trivia out of your pocket and challenge someone to a bet. It will surely win you a beer, which you can down to either drown your sorrow or celebrate the day. INAUGURATIONFrom page 9COURTESY IMAGESTop: Ronald Reagan is sworn in. Bottom left: George W.

NECFrom page 11Local businessman Rob Clark is one of four siblings who manage the foundation. He and his wife, Davina, heard about NEC through a friend and visted the campus off Goodlette-Frank Road before Thanksgiving. After a brief tour, they offered to close out the capital campaign with an $813,187 gift. Our family and horses go way back, Mr. Clark said. My father was a race horse owner and we always had ponies in our backyard. So when we discovered the wonderful work being done at NEC with children and horses, we knew he would be thrilled to support the organization through his foundation. The new Clark Family Foundation Equine-Assisted Therapy Center features an 80-foot covered round riding arena, a 4,000-square-foot training and research center and a stable that will accommodate up to four therapy horses. It is being built on land just south of and adjacent to NECs current site, which was purchased debt-free in 2013. Other top donors to the Barn Raising campaign are: Connie and Gary Sharpe, $335,300 for the covered round riding arena; Connie and Don Smith, $265,000 for groundbreaking; the Taishoff Family Foundation, $150,000 for the observation deck; and Roberta Patton, $100,000 for the Pathway to Healing. NEC now turns its fundraising focus towards a $1 million endowment to support the centers continuing maintenance as well as program dollars to support the more than 200 new riders the organization can now accommodate. Twenty-one years after it started with a handful of volunteers and a borrowed pony, NEC changes the lives of 660 clients every year and has an annual budget of approximately $750,000, according to Ms. Minarich. For more information about NEC and its programs, call Ms. Minarich at 596-2988 or visit www.

Though rules require dispensers to investigate suspicious overprescribing, little was done, according to a recent Drug Enforcement Administration report obtained by the GazetteMail of Charleston even though half of the pills were supplied by the nations big three drugmakers (whose CEOs compensation is enriched enormously by pain pill production). Worse, year-by-year the strengths of the pills prescribed increase as users tolerance demands. (West Virginia residents disproportionately suffer from unemployment, coal mining-related disabilities and poor health.) University of Kentucky professor Buck Ryan disclosed in December that he had been punished recently (loss of travel funds and a prestigious award) by his dean for singing the Beach Boys classic California Girls for a lesson comparing American and Chinese cultures because of the songs language of a sexual nature. The schools coordinator on sexual harassment issues made the ruling, apparently absent student complaints, for Ryans lyric change of Well, East Coast girls are hip to Well, Shanghai girls are hip. Because the 2015 San Bernardino, Calif., terrorist attack that killed 14 and seriously wounded 22 was a workplace injury (in that the shooters fired only at fellow employees), any health insurance the victims had was superseded exclusively by coverage under the states workers compensation system a system largely designed for typical job injuries, such as back pain and slip-andfalls. Thus, for example, one San Bernardino victim with hundreds of pieces of shrapnel still in her body even after multiple surgeries and in constant pain, must nevertheless constantly argue her level of care with a bureaucrat pressured by budgetary issues and forced to massage sets of one-size-fits-all guidelines.Least-competent criminalsA December post on the Marietta, Ga., police departments Facebook page chided a shoplifter still at large who had left his ID and fingerprints (and inadvertently posed for security cameras). The police, noting how easy the man had made their job, begged him to give them some sort of challenge: Please at least try to hide. Suspect Dale Tice was soon in custody.New World orderRecent Awkward Apps: (1) The Kerastase Hair Coach (a smart hairbrush with Wi-Fi, monitoring brush strokes on three axes to manage frizziness, dryness, split ends and breakage); (2) The still-in-prototype Kissenger (with a meat-colored rubbery dock for a smartphone that the user can kiss and have the sensation transmitted to a lovers receiving dock over the internet); (3) The Ozmo smart cup (to effortlessly empower you with a platform for better hydration choices in your water and coffee consumption with software for other drinks coming soon) (Bonus: Oldschool users can also just drink out of it.); (4) The Prophix toothbrush (with a video camera so you catch areas your brushing might have missed); (5) Spartan boxer briefs (stylishly protecting mens goods from Wi-Fi and cell phone radiation).Economic indicatorThe salary the Golden State Warriors pay to basketball whiz Stephen Curry may be a bargain at $12 million a year, but the economics is weirder about the prices Currys fans pay on the street for one of his used mouth guards retrieved from the arena floor after a game. One used, sticky, saliva-encased teeth-protector went for $3,190 at one August auction, and SCP Auctions of California is predicting $25,000 for another, expelled during the NBA championship series last June. ESPN Magazine reported at least 35 Twitter accounts dedicated to Currys mouthguard.Wait, what?(1) The Las Vegas Sun reported in December that Nevada slotand videomachine gamblers left almost $12 million on the floor during 2012 (i.e., winning tickets that remain uncashed for six months, thus reverting to the state), running the five-year total to nearly $35 million.

BEHIND THE WHEELTop cars at Detroit show include GTs, good old standby and electricThe North American International Auto Show in Detroit gives the automakers their first opportunity every year to get the public excited about the road ahead. While the crystal ball sees as far as a decade away, most of us really wont wait that long for our dream car. So were going to peek into the shortterm crystal ball and look at the five most interesting vehicles that will be hitting the road in 2017.Dodge Challenger GT AWDThere are no real changes to the exterior of Dodges muscle car for 2017, but an essential piece has been added under the skin. The new GT version has an all-wheel drive option (base price $36K.) Like most Challengers already out there, this new one has a preference for rear-wheel drive. But if the system detects any slipping in the rear wheels (which this muscle machine often does,) the front tires begin to provide essential grip. Its only available with the V6 option no Hemi or supercharged version. Of course, no one would consider the GTs 305 hp a slouch, either. But what gets us excited about the Challenger GT is that those who live at the end of a long dirt road or just fear driving in a Florida summer monsoon now have the opportunity to drive a cool muscle car.Ford GTEven those who have the $400K to purchase the Ford GT today cant get this 550 hp American supercar from the dealer right now. The line for it started two years ago when the concept car premiered in Detroit. So the waiting list now extends into 2018, but since the Ford GT is now officially in production, there will be a few for resale this year. Dont search the used car lots. And expect to pay more than half a million dollars for one. But for the right people, it will be absolutely worth it.Mazda MX5 Miata RFFor those who will never be in the Ford GT price bracket, the $32K Mazda Miata RF might be a fine substitution. This version doesnt alter the nicely balanced 155 hp 2.0-liter drivetrain, so it is still razor sharp. But what makes it worth paying thousands more than a comparable roadster version is the very cool disappearing top. Like a mini Porsche 911 Targa, watching the roof do its little electronic symphony is already worth the price of admission. And what you are left with is a flying buttress rear deck that erases the Miata cute image as people compare the fastback design to the best from Europe.Volkswagen AtlasA few weeks ago we mentioned how the midsize three-row crossover market is heating up because families have to keep bulky child seats longer than ever before. Volkswagen is diving head first into this market with the American-made Atlas. A beefy design and useful features will put it on many shopping lists. But what is the most interesting part is VWs commitment to a $30K base price. A decade ago they would have asked $10,000 more for a vehicle like this. The affordable price today is a major sign that Volkswagen is recognizing that being part of the mainstream also means offering value for money.Toyota CamryToyota has introduced a new version of its bread-n-b utter sedan. Its not the sexiest car that debuted in Detroit (sorry Toyota) but thats never been the Camrys goal. There will be plenty of marketing over the next few months talking about bold style and more driver-focused features. But what you really want to know is that its poised to be the same reliable appliance youve come to expect from the Camry. They promise more power while using less fuel, and the base price should remain in the low $20Ks. Consistency isnt always stimulating, but done right, its a winning formula.The road aheadAs a special side note, the true standout at the NAIAS was the driverless vehicle. Nearly every manufacturer had new autonomous technology to showcase. Ford even went so far as to declare that they would be selling a new model without a steering wheel by 2021. So you will still need to stay in control for 2017. Just know that the car companies are working hard to get you out of the drivers seat.

Out of that number, Florida hosts 14 marches in cities including Pensacola, Miami, Orlando and Tampa. This is an unprecedented, organic and viral grassroots global movement that is growing every day, sister march spokeswoman Yordanos Eyoel said in a press release. The aggregate turnout has the potential to exceed 1 million marchers. What makes this movement even more special is that people who have never been politically active before are now mobilizing. Like the organizers of the national march, Ms. Cohen said the local rally came together quickly. Thanks to likeminded organizations being ready to take action after the election, more than 22 speakers from groups such as Planned Parenthood of Central and Southwest Florida, NAACP and National Organization for Women are scheduled to speak at Cambier Park. National and local groups like Collier Freedom Movement and Islamic Center for Peace in Fort Myers have a number of intersectional concerns such as immigration, raising the minimum wage, LGBTQ rights and more and are using the march as a platform to convene on common ground. The march is a place where different groups can come together and emphasize unity within the community, Ms. Cohen said, and celebrate inclusivity. We have people from both parties participating because people are concerned that some social justice issues are going to be left behind, says Phyllis Andrews, another organizer of the local march. Its just an amazing outpouring of people who want to be involved. I recruit for a lot of different things, and Ive never had everyone say yes, they will do a speech. Though Southwest Florida is a conservative stronghold, recent events have encouraged moderate Republicans to band together with local progressives, Ms. Andrews said. I have to tell you that we have a lot of Republicans and Independents supporting this effort we really do have a lot of fervent progressive people here, she added. They are all very concerned. I think thats why (local marches are) happening in (many) places. Its quite an interesting phenomenon. In Naples, marchers will gather at the corner of Broad Avenue and Third Street South at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 21. At 10 a.m., participants will walk 1.1 miles to Cambier Park, where a rally is scheduled with speakers, sign making, music and more until 1 p.m. The list of speakers as of press time includes: Mohammed Darsani, imam at the Islamic Center for Peace in Fort Myers; Tony Fisher, minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Naples; David Goldstein, PFLAG Naples; Araceli Gomez, Immokalee Interagency Council; Ellen Hemrick, Showing Up for Racial Justice; Beatrice Jacquet, Haitian immigrant advocate; Rev. Kathy Kircher, former pastor of Christ Episcopal Church; Tamara Paquette, Women Candidates for Political Office; Jacqueline Perez NOWFort Myers and Naples; Veronica Schell, Planned Parenthood of Central and Southwest Florida; Alina Valdes, former Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress; and Harold Weeks, past president, NAACP Collier County.

In 2005, correspondence belonging Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank and the sole member of his family to survive the Holocaust, was discovered in the archives of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York City. The newly released documentary, No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Franks Story, provides an insight into what was found. Temple Shalom in Naples invites the public to a screening of the film at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31. The evening is presented at no charge by GenShoah of Southwest Florida, a group of children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, with support from the temple and the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Jonathan Brent, executive director of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research will be in attendance and will lead a Q&A session after the film. No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Franks Story sheds light on Mr. Franks efforts to secure the required visas and affidavits required to bring his family to safety in the United States. It was incredibly difficult to get the proper paperwork to travel through, or to, almost any country during World War II for all refugees, but especially Jews. At the infamous Evian Conference in July 1938, representatives from 31 of 32 countries attending refused to go beyond their normal immigration procedures to assist refugees coming from Nazi-controlled areas. In many instances, additional obstacles were put in the way of families trying to flee. While it can be difficult to envision the enormity of the Holocaust in the big picture, The Diary of Anne Frank has helped millions of people around the world put a face to the Holocaust. The new documentary based on Mr. Franks letters further illuminates the tragedy. Ultimately, learning these stories should inspire us to find a way to help the people in need all around us.

BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comLast year was a tough one for Florida panthers. Not that any year isnt the traffic just keeps coming. By the end of 2016 the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission listed 42 panther deaths, 34 as a result of motor vehicles. Thats a historic record. Unfortunately for the panthers or for those passionate about saving the species, 16 females were numbered among the 42 mortalities tracked by the FWC. The numbers have increased each year. In 2015, 30 panthers were killed after being struck by motor vehicles. A year before that, in 2014, the number of vehicle-related panther deaths came in at 24. Meanwhile last year, only 14 cubs were born in a total of six litters, the FWC reports an unenviable and even discouraging death-to-birth ratio in 2016 of 42 to 14. But the FWC also lists depredations the killing of livestock or domestic animals reported to and investigated by the FWC. The panthers hit back, apparently, with big appetites: on 31 of 41 occasions last year panthers killed livestock or pets, including seven times in Hendry County and 24 times in Collier County. On one occasion in Hendry County a panther or panthers killed 11 sheep; on other occasions in Collier County they killed six goats and three calves. While bears, coyotes, bobcats, dogs and even vultures have taken the blame for some depredations, panthers are the chief cause, says Darrell Land, the FWC panther team leader who responded to questions in an email conveyed by an FWC spokeswoman. We look for evidence such as bite marks, tracks, feeding patterns and other clues like if the carcass was dragged off and covered, he said. Sometimes those depredations occurred within a few miles of each other over a four or five-week period, and on one occasion in Collier Countys Golden Gate Estates predations occurred from April to May on 20th Avenue NE; 12 Street NE; and 6th Avenue NE two incidents resulting from panther predation, one from a bear and one unknown, the website says. Could a single panther have preyed on those goats and sheep in Golden Gate? Will panthers kill more than they need to eat? How does anybody know that panthers are responsible? We know that multiple panthers were involved because some depredations were caused by males, some by females and some by mother with offspring, said Mr. Land. Panthers use large areas, typically between 40 to over 100 square miles. Golden Gate Estates is over 100 square miles in size and most depredations occur within this area. But many also occurred on private property or on various agricultural tracts including the JB Ranch south of Oil Well Road off State Road 29, in eastern Collier County, according to the FWC website data. The cattle ranch is owned by Aliese Priddy, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to the FWCs conservation commission. She is vice chair and is up for reappointment this month. Ms. Priddy has publically advocated removing panthers from the federal Endangered Species list, not increasing the population in Southwest Florida, and not extending their range to central or north Florida. She could not be reached last week by telephone. The state has paid Ms. Priddy $3.75 million to preserve about 1,600 acres on her ranch as panther habitat, reports show even though she has argued that landowners should be able to develop their property if they wish, whether panthers live on it or not. She also receives federal benefits from a USDA program managed by the Farm Services Agency for cattle killed on her land by panthers. In 2014, for example, panthers killed a single calf on her land; in 2015 they killed another, according to the FWCs records (Ms. Priddy has claimed previously panthers killed more than the FWC credits); but last year in eight depredations on her land, five were blamed on panthers; two others were listed as unknown and one was attributed to a bear. The federal FSA program for any such ranchers, known as the Livestock Indemnity Program or LIP, in 2016 paid livestock owners 75 percent of the average fair market value of livestock for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather or by attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the Federal Government, or protected by federal law, according to the website. Beef, for example, is categorized as adult or non-adult. Bulls were listed in 2016 as valued at $1,927.89, with cows coming in at $1,529.14. In the non-adult category, calves weighing less than 400 pounds were valued at $757.59; those 400 to 799 pounds at $819.65; and non-adults more than 800 pounds were worth $1,120.38. For five calves killed by panthers or bears in the 400to 800-pound range, therefore, a rancher could have received about $4,100 from the federal government last year. (Ms. Priddy also hosts a private hunting camp on her land and strongly supports the Florida bear hunt.) An equine, which would include miniature and Shetland ponies animals also listed as killed by panthers in southwest Florida from time to time brought $1,059.47 per animal. A duck, in contrast, was worth $4.21.

on livestock or pets (Chihuahuas seem to a particular favorite, FWC data suggests)? There are more people and more vehicles in traditional panther habitat, as Mr. Land points out. But could the number of panthers also be on the increase? The answer isnt clear. The FWC told Florida Weekly that the numbers of this highly endangered species are now somewhere between 100 and 180. That loose bracket represents an estimate the FWC has used for years based on radio collars, hired trackers and other information. Ranchers and farmers operating in traditional panther habitats say the numbers are significantly higher than that, an opinion based on their own observations but without data to support it. Even Mr. Land, however, implied they might be right. An upward trend in deaths is consistent with increase in the number of panthers, he said. The FWC spokeswoman, Carli Segelson, indicated a new count is underway. In November, Mr. Land and others located female panther tracks in Charlotte County north of the Caloosahatchee River, the first time females have existed there since 1973, more than 40 years. The panthers are moving, perhaps even expanding in range and population. But the traffic keeps coming in greater numbers.

For more information, visit How to keep the peace with your kids spousesPaula was fit to be tied. Shed texted her daughter-in-law, Megan, yesterday asking when she could visit Megan and Todds baby. As usual, Megan had been evasive. Megan always had excuses for why it wasnt convenient for Paula to come over. Megan had a mind of her own and continually pushed back. When Paula tried to vent her frustrations about Megan to her son Todd, he was unsympathetic. What do you expect? You were never nice to her. Why should you expect her to put herself out for you? If truth be told, Paula had been disappointed about her sons choice. Shed always envisioned that Todd would marry a stylish, outgoing woman who would enjoy going out to lunch and shopping with her. Megan was a more conservative, studious type who made it very clear she eschewed her in-laws lifestyle and values. Paula could not contain herself and had advised Todd not to marry Megan. Todd had been incensed and had berated Paula for being shallow and mean-spirited. Paula never dreamed that Todd would confide their conversation to Megan. And, even though Paula had attempted to apologize and get things on track with Megan, the young woman had held this against Paula ever since.We know that oft-expressed statement: When you marry someone, you marry their whole family. But lets take the statement one step further. When our children marry, their life partner becomes part of our family as well. Some folks are blessed when their children pick partners who are a comfortable fit. However, for those parents whose children make choices that disappoint them, the parties initial responses to the disappointment may have far-reaching impact on future family harmony. When two families are brought together, they often bring different values, personalities and cultures to the table. Young couples may feel caught in the middle as they attempt to integrate what theyve learned from each of their backgrounds into a combined life while at the same time balancing their ties with both families. Differences in temperaments, communication styles and attitudes may fuel conflict and misunderstanding. When we have rigid expectations for our childs future, we may impose damaging and unrealistic burdens on them. Some of us have a need conscious or otherwise to have our children follow a predetermined course of behavior. Our children often have radars up and are acutely attuned to our wishes and disappointments. They may be influenced to go forward in the prescribed direction or deliberately choose a different path. Its helpful when mothers of sons attempt to gain insight into the mindsets and comfort levels of their new daughtersin-law. Many young women of todays generation have definite ideas about how they define their lifestyles and view extended family ties and resist the (sometimes unsolicited) advice and input of the older generation. Understandably, these young women have grown up in a family with values, customs and belief systems that may be quite different. They may feel threatened, uncomfortable or downright turned off to the lifestyle and values of their in-laws. They may have a natural inclination to spend time with their own mothers and extended families and are not always open to dividing time equally with both sides. This can be bewildering and hurtful to their husbands families and a source of conflict. And, if the young couple takes steps to maintain a boundary protecting their joined life together, family loyalties may be further tested. Newly blended families should remind themselves that it takes quite a bit of time for everyone to adjust to the changes and to become comfortable with each others personality quirks, habits and points of view. In some cases, the parties wont be able to warm up to each other, and despite efforts to build closer bonds, it just isnt going to happen. In those cases, it might be sufficient to set a more realistic goal that the parties be cordial to each other. For the sake of harmony, newly minted (or soon-to-be) mothers-in-law should recite an internal mantra: Smile, smile, smile. And think hard before offering opinions or advice. Remember it is important to todays young generation that they define their own paths. Giving them the space to gain this autonomy and confidence is critically important. If you dont have something positive and supportive to say, keep your thoughts to yourself. Assume that theres a good likelihood your child will share confidences with his or her spouse or partner, and any negativities will be held against you. Even though you may have the best of intentions, do not expect a show of appreciation in return. And sons-in-law and daughters-in-law: The mantra should be to remind you that most of the time, the older generation has the best of intentions. Yes, they may at times be annoying, self-serving or pushy. They may offer their opinions when you do not ask for them. But again most of the time they mean well. Take a deep breath, and try not to be too sensitive or take things too personally. Its OK to have a mind of your own, and to speak up about important things, but please remember that your in-laws have feelings also and speak to them with kindness and respect. And, yes, smile, smile, smile even if its trying at times. And, for all the parties: Remember that you hold something dear in common the wish to maintain ties to your blood relatives and grandchildren.

Part 2Each day is a canvas waiting to be painted. Craig Sager 2 017NCH teamwork saves the life of a boy with brain hemorrhageHaving pediatric care close to home literally saves childrens lives. On a recent evening, the caregivers in the Robert, Mariann & Megan MacDonald Pediatric ER at NCH North Naples saved the life of a 4-year-old boy.Even though the boy walked into the ER, the team immediately recognized there was something seriously wrong. He was suffering an intracranial hemorrhage, and his condition was rapidly deteriorating.According to Dr. Pia Myers, medical director of our pediatric emergency department, the report was that the boy had fallen and hit his head at a local restaurant. Within the first hour of arrival he vomited, became lethargic and upon his return from CT began seizing. The team including Drs. Christopher Bartruff and Maria Esperanza Caceres and nurses Kristen Baudin, Jackie Ric and Amanda Simmons, in addition to support by nurses from the adult side and ER Director Chris Raphael intubated and stabilized the patient, but then the nightmare unfolded. Pediatric neurosurgeons at All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg and Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital in Hollywood both had accepted this young patient for the lifesaving treatment he needed, but weather restriction prohibited flying, and ground transport would take at least three or four hours. Adult neurosurgeon Paul Richard realized the gravity of the situation and agreed to operate on the boy at our downtown NCH Baker Hospital. Dr. Myers also thanks the NCH Pediatric Intensive Care Unit team of Dr. Debra Lopez, Marilyn Heatwole, R.N., and respiratory therapists Scott Friel and Bill Grayson, who transported the patient to the downtown campus and stayed with him through his hemicraniectomy until he was transferred to Joe DiMaggio for further care.Everyone responded to this emergency as if this patient were their own family member or their own child, and I couldnt be more proud of and grateful to all involved, Dr. Myers wrote to me in an email.Dr. Bruce Caldwell, newly elected chair of our anesthesiology department of Anesthesiology shared his goal: I want our department to continue to be a strong, dependable and a respected part of the mission for optimal health care in Collier County. Dr. Karl Horsten was the receiving anesthesiologist for this patient and initiated care until a concurrent emergency necessitated calling Dr. Caldwell to assist. This case is just one recent example of how teamwork, competence, innovation and stretching out of our comfort zone saved a childs life. Southwest Florida is safer than ever for the 80,000 people ages 18 and younger who call our region home, thanks in part to the entire NCH pediatric team. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. l i t N t U

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal SyndicateLindsey Wolko had just adopted a new dog. She had crates in her car for her other dogs, but no way to secure Maggie, so she stopped at her local pet retailer to purchase a safety harness for her. A couple of months later, when she had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident, Maggie, wearing her harness, was badly injured. Whether they are riding loose or are confined in a crate, car seat or harness, pet passengers can be hurt or killed in the event of a sudden stop or collision. They can suffer bruising, contusions, sprains or lacerations some of the injuries reported to Nationwide, which has claims data on 585,000 insured pets and more serious injuries such as broken bones and internal trauma, says emergency and critical care veterinarian Gretchen L. Schoeffler, DVM, at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. Veterinarian Marty Becker has seen too many avoidable accidents involving pets riding in cars. He recalls being stopped at an intersection during a thunderstorm. I saw a flash of lightning, heard the clap of thunder and then watched a frightened medium-size dog freak out, jump out the open window of a car, and get hit and killed in front of me. If the dog had been secured in a crate or with a seatbelt restraint, it would still be alive. Simply securing a pet in a crate, carrier or harness isnt necessarily enough, though. Crates can break apart on impact, or be crushed if they are held in place with a seatbelt. The force of a collision can propel pets out of a crate or carrier or cause paralyzing injuries to pets restrained by harnesses without crash protection qualities. Wolkos experience galvanized her to investigate ways pets could be safer inside vehicles. She became involved in the pet travel gear industry, studied the manufacturing process and founded the nonprofit Center for Pet Safety, which has established crash-test standards for pet travel products and certifies those that provide tested crash protection. Were an independent entity, Wolko says. We dont take funding from manufacturers. To help keep your dog or cat safe in the car, weve gathered six expert tips. 1. Place a small pet carrier soft or hard-sided in the footwell behind the drivers or front passengers seat. If you have an SUV, crossover or station wagon, place larger crates or carriers in the cargo area of your vehicle. Theres actually video demonstrating that in a collision if theyre in the back seat or the back of the vehicle, theyre much more likely to be airborne than if theyre in the footwell, says feline veterinary specialist Elizabeth Colleran, DVM. 2. Never transport pets in wire crates. They explode. They bend, they morph, the pieces come out, the plastic pan shatters into very, very sharp pieces, Wolko says. 3. Anchor carriers with strength-rated anchor straps. 4. Avoid using zip line-style products or harnesses with long extension tethers. It may be easier for your dog to move around, but it can increase his risk in a crash. 5. Teach your pet to ride comfortably in a crate, carrier or harness. Harnesses, in particular, can seem restrictive to dogs. Most owners will need to train their dogs to accept it and to be comfortable being strapped in, says Natasha Audy of Castlegar, British Columbia, Canada, whose 13-month-old German shepherd, Richochet, wears a Sleepypod Clickit Sport harness. 6. Choose a crate that is no more than 6 inches longer than your pet. A snug fit reduces the chance of injury. Pets should have enough room to stand up and turn around.

Maximum binge TVWhile 2016 reigned down a ration of misery for most folks, 2017 clearly thinks it can do better in the calamity department. In fact, in our household, 2017 is basically telling 2016, Hold my beer watch this. Its only been three weeks and my husband Todds checking account was hacked, as was my debit card. Our cat got sick (shes doing better now, thanks). Todds recovering from surgery to fix two herniated discs in his neck (beware of athletic activities when youre young, kids they WILL come back and haunt you after a certain age), and I caught the plague and when I say plague, I mean a miserable sinus infection due to a weakened immune system caused by too much hugging, hand shaking and air-kissing at holiday soirees (Im really hoping surgical masks and rubber gloves become chic one of these days). As a result, weve been laying low at home and speaking in quiet whispers while we hope that the perils of 2017 will forget about us and slither away by February. And by laying low, I mean binge watching TV. Todd and I love a good binge when it comes to a TV series. So much so that instead of buying each other gifts this past Christmas, we bought a fairly fancy new TV for the living room instead. Alas, while the TV was successfully delivered to us shortly after the New Year, the stand for it was apparently delivered by FedEx to a lucky household a few streets away where theyre likely using it as a free coffee table (thanks again, 2017). So, even though were unable to watch our new TV yet, were very busy enjoying the old one. While Im curled up on the couch, surrounded by Puffs Plus and Halls Mentho-lyptus Cough Drops, and Todd is snuggled in his favorite recliner with a heating pad on his neck and eating Oreo Cookie Ice Cream, were living the glamorous life of binge TV watchers. We loved The Crown, the sweeping Netflix series chronicling the first few years of young Queen Elizabeth IIs reign as she navigated her way to become one of the most powerful rulers in the world (also, there are a lot of SPARKLY TIARAS). Westworld on HBO was so good that we zipped through it (we may or may not have watched five episodes on one cloudy Sunday). Its science-fiction/ fantasy, but with lots of heart plus remarkable acting from Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, and more. Goliath on Amazon with Billy Bob Thornton was awesome the story of a troubled, alcoholic lawyer going up against a huge, evil corporation guess who wins? But, seriously, its a great show and well worth your time. And then, theres This Is Us (NBC) the sweet tear jerker of a series about a loving, funny dysfunctional family that details their lives from the s until the present. At first, I thought it might be a little too sappy for Todd, but when I caught him watching an episode without me, I knew he was just as hooked on the Pearson family drama as I was. Hopefully, 2017 is good to you and all is well. But if this year is already being a big fat bully, at least you can retreat to your sofas for some good binge watching. Seriously though, once FedEx successfully delivers our new TV stand, you may never see me again. After all, we still havent seen Game of Thrones, Mr. Robot or Black Mirror. Thank goodness for grocery delivery service. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS

That is, if we wait in lines at banks anymore at all. From national companies such as Bank of America to local community banks, all are reacting to consumer preference shifting toward an online world. Our customers, of all ages, not just Millennials, really have embraced mobile banking, said Robbie Roepstorff, president of Edison National Bank in Lee County. Since Americans have come to rely on mobile devices after the iPhone was introduced in 2007, everyday retail banking continues to be a fast-growing niche. Customers are migrating away from in-person services such as drive-up tellers in favor of technology such as mobile check deposit, one of the most popular and fastest growing services provided by banks. That enables people to take a picture of a check on their phone and use their banks mobile app to deposit it from wherever they happen to be. I would say right now probably the hottest thing is the mobile deposit, said Aliette Pettay, senior vice president of retail banking for First Florida Integrity Bank. We just introduced it about a year ago and that took off like wildfire, said Alyson Burch, vice president and Punta Gorda branch manager with Charlotte State Bank & Trust. A national Bank of America survey found that 62 percent of respondents in 2016 used digital as their primary method of banking, up 11 percent from the year before. As the gap widens, Bank of America continues to selectively close Bank of America is closing many drive-up teller windows as online banking grows, but local community banks have found their customers expect the best of both worlds, in person and on their phones.

Our business is really run on 10 core values, Mr. Wynn says. It was originally based on my grandfathers value system. One of those core values is to be humble Its the cornerstone of so much of our business philosophy. If you have that humility, then it allows you to truly have that servant-leadership mindset. The servant-leadership mindset he cites was established by the late Don Q. Wynn, who along with his wife, Annie, opened Naples first modern grocery store, Wynns Sunshine Super Market, in 1948. In 1953, the elder Mr. Wynn built a larger store in downtown Naples that became the birthplace of the familys Sunshine Hardware. Wynns Market now has locations along Ninth Street in downtown Naples and Key Largo, as well as Wynns Catering in downtown Naples. The hardware operation has stores in Estero, Bonita Springs, Golden Gate, San Carlos Park, Marco Island, East Naples and Port Charlotte. Mr. Wynn says his grandfather worked hard and cared deeply about his employees, customers and community, and he always tried to help all three wherever and whenever he could. He passed those values down to his children and grandchildren.

Some are being consolidated to other centers, said Michael Esposito, a regional sales executive for Bank of Americas retail banking services. So if a drive-up you relied on is closed there should be one available within a short drive. Bank of Americas customers deposited 26 million checks using their mobile banking app in the third quarter of 2016, accounting for 18 percent of all deposits, and paid 25 million bills, up 30 percent from the year before. Customers are more often utilizing branch buildings for face-to-face advice about major financial decisions, Mr. Esposito said. When theyre making those big life decisions, purchasing a home or planning for retirement or savings, they still want to speak to somebody. Smaller community banks like Edison, which emphasize personal service, said they have no plans to scale back drive-through or other services at brickand-mortar locations. I expect you would typically see that more from the larger banks, Ms. Roepstorff said. Id be very surprised to see that from a true community bank. Charlotte State Bank & Trust isnt planning on closing any drive-up windows. In fact, weve gotten a lot of business because of Bank of America doing that, said branch manager Ms. Burch. At the same time, local banks compete with the big financial institutions in keeping up with the technology that customers more often expect. Its an immediate gratification society we live in and our technology has to provide that because if we dont provide that to someone, theyre going to find another bank that does, said Bill Turner, vice president of branch administration for Encore Bank. He has found that people who are roughly 50 and older more often want to come in to a branch location or deal with someone in person. Thats kind of how they were brought up, thats how they were first exposed to banking when they were young, he said. Younger customers, meanwhile, are trending more toward the online services. Many retired part-time Florida residents also use online services to keep up with their accounts when they go north for the summer. I think the majority of our customers enjoy knowing they can come in and see us anytime or they can pick up the phone anytime and talk to a real live person, said Ms. Burch. At the same time they like knowing when they want to use technology, they can. With increasing online services, banks are also investing in more security measures. One of the most popular has been instant alerts that can be texted or emailed, allowing customers to stop fraudulent payments within minutes from their phones. They can push a button right there on their phone and it freezes any transaction, Ms. Roepstorff said. For business clients, banks are offering security tokens, a separate digital device or an app that generates random, one-time codes to keep deposits safe. Just as opening accounts, transfers, and check deposits have become standard online procedures for many consumers, bankers say peer-to-peer money transfers pioneered by services such as PayPal will become increasingly common, convenient and secure. Banks are starting to offer more sophisticated peer-to-peer services such as transferring small amounts of money into a friends or grandchilds account from a mobile device. I think things like that are getting more and more popular, Ms. Burch said. Theyre starting to expect that. officer and a mortgage broker. Michael Zahaby: Lending and banking, small and middle market companies, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning Mr. Zahaby has more than 40 years of financial services expertise including restaurants, franchises and beverage distribution.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 BUSINESS B5FROM THE TOPFrom page 1 MONEY & INVESTINGTrumps impact on the stock market as unpredictable as his tweetsIn writing this column, I really try to refrain from delving into and politics as much as I possibly can. There are plenty of other writers for this paper who are much more knowledgeable about this subject than I. However, in recent weeks, politics have played more of an influence on the market than I have seen in a long while. So what effect has it had on stocks and will this trend continue? The first sign we all had that the election and the aftermath would be significant market movers happened the night of the election. When it was clear that Trump was going to win the presidency, stock futures plummeted and gold shot upward as uncertainty gripped the markets. But when the markets opened the next morning, stocks started to climb and gold actually sold off. After digesting the news overnight, investors began to realize that a Trump president probably would be good for big business and the economy in general. Therefore, they concluded, they should buy stocks and sell gold and Treasury Bonds. Since Election Day, analysts have been trying to guess which investments would be helped and which would be hurt. From this analysis, the Trump Trade was born. This trading strategy is to first go long on certain stock sectors that should benefit the most if Trump enacts the policies central to his campaign. Material stocks like U.S. Steel should benefit as the government funds massive infrastructure projects and enacts protectionist trade policies. Financial company profits should rise if Trump rolls back onerous Dodd-Frank rules imposed after the financial crisis. And small cap stocks should similarly benefit as regulations are removed across the board. The second part of the Trump Trade is to short investments that are anticipated to be treated unfavorably. Gold and bonds should under-perform as the economy strengthens and inflation increases. Foreign currencies should fall against the dollar as interest rates rise. And large cap technology and multinational companies should also underperform as the dollar strengthens and multi-national trade is potentially inhibited. But beyond the Trump Trade, the president-elect has been moving markets simply through his tweets and press conferences. For example, a comment about a weapons program costing too much will cause the manufacturers stock to fall 3 percent. Or a tweet that a company has met Trumps approval by bringing jobs back to the U.S. will cause the stock to pop a few points. Most recently, Trump held his first press conference in a number of months and whole sectors moved when Trump said drug manufacturers were getting away with murder. The entire biotech sector fell over 3 percent. For the time being, it looks like emotions and anticipatory trades are ruling the markets. This is very scary for disciplined investors as this makes fundamental analysis almost meaningless in the short run. If whole asset classes are going to move because of a 6 a.m. tweet, how can you intelligently do any type of investing? But this too will pass and the markets hopefully will return to a semblance of normalcy where actual earnings and economic events drive the markets. Already, as we approach Trumps inauguration, the Trump Trade is beginning to reverse itself as investors reassess the actual impact Trump will have on the economy. But Trumps unpredictable nature will almost certainly increase volatility until the market can better anticipate which policies discussed during the campaign will become reality and which were simply rhetoric. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. COURTESY PHOTOMichael Wynn, right, with customers Thomas and Yvonne Fazio at Sunshine Ace in Bonita. ers through the business, or serving your team members or serving the community, the third-generation Collier County resident says. He believes the servantleadership approach has been a key to Sunshine Hardwares success and that of Wynns Market. It allows you to change business practices when necessary, without holding onto pride of ownership of a business practice or an idea that may have originated with you, he says. Also, I think it helps to you to be a good listener for team members from every level of the company. Mr. Wynn, 44, has worked in the family businesses since childhood, starting out at age 6 by dressing in costumes to advertise sales, promotions and new stores. At age 14, he became a grocery bagger and he continued to work there through his days at Barron Collier High School. After graduation, earned a degree in accounting at the University of South Florida and then became a staff accountant for the family hardware business, eventually becoming the companys controller and CFO. But the more I got out into the community and working with our team members, thats when I started moving into a broader leadership operations role, which took me into the role of president, he says. He attained an MBA at Florida Gulf Coast University and became CEO of the family company in 2005. In that position, he is essentially responsible for overseeing the companys strategic direction and growth. One of the challenges hes faced as CEO is developing a system for maintaining the culture and the core values his grandfather established. As people began to retire and that natural turnover took place, and we were expanding and buying new businesses, we did not want that culture to be diluted, he says. We developed a training system and rewards to represent what that culture really means. That was one challenge I think weve effectively overcome, he adds. As people come into the business, they participate in a training program to (learn) those values, and on a day-to-day basis we can recognize those values in the culture that has made us successful thus far. The system has been recognized by the Uncommon Friends Foundation, which awarded Sunshine Ace with its 2014 Business Ethics Award. Like his grandfather, serving the community has been a priority for Mr. Wynn, who is a member of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and its Leadership Collier Foundation, the boards of directors for the Moorings Park retirement communities and the NCH Healthcare System. He is also branch director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. He and his wife, Paula, have two daughters: Olivia, 18, and Sydney, 17. Interview with the boss Business mentors: My grandfather, Don Q. Wynn; Duwayne Keller with Dale Carnegie; and Charlie Bishop, who worked for our family for 38 years and served as our COO before retirement.First job: Bagging groceries at Wynns Family Market on Fifth Avenue. Starting from an entry-level position and working through various positions in the company taught me a great work ethic and to respect every team members contribution. Business words of wisdom: Stolen from my grandfather: You cant steal second with one foot on rst. You cannot grow your business without taking calculated risks. Dont be afraid of failure. Be afraid of not trying.Recent business book: Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek. His philosophy on how to treat people aligns strongly with our company core values.Two things you look for when hiring: How often do they smile? Is it natural, or is it forced? And do they make eye contact?Job openings? Yes! We have several positions open from cashier, to shing expert to central buyer. A full list is available at www.

That was followed by the 1935 founding of RotoRooter, which is now North Americas largest plumbing and drain-cleaning company. Meanwhile, the VITAS company was founded in 1978 as Hospice Care Inc., one of the countrys earliest hospice programs and now its Americas top endof-life care provider. Im based in Cincinnati and have both VITAS and Roto-Rooter as my wholly owned subsidiaries. My market value recently topped $2.5 billion. Who am I? Think you know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Meet the Balance SheetBusinesses typically have balance sheets, which are snapshots of their financial condition at a single point in time. You could draw up a personal balance sheet, too, listing all your assets (house, car, bank accounts, etc.), subtracting money owed (mortgage, car loan, credit card debt, etc.), and ending up with your net worth. Companies essentially do the same thing, and you can evaluate their financial strength by studying their balance sheets, which are typically issued at the end of a fiscal quarter or year. The balance sheet has three main parts: assets, liabilities and shareholder equity. Assets, typically on the left, are set equal to or balance liabilities and shareholder equity on the right. In assets, youll find items such as cash and cash equivalents and shortterm investments, reflecting how much financial gunpowder the company has available. These assets are good, but other assets are less good. Accounts receivable, for example, is money from sales that the company hasnt yet received (and possibly may never receive). Inventory reports how much product is in various stages of preparation. Its cash tied up in materials that havent been sold yet. Other balance sheet assets may include investments, prepaid expenses (items such as insurance that are paid ahead of time), and property, plant and equipment. Liabilities are likely to include shortterm (also called current) debt and longterm debt. Debt is not necessarily bad, although its best to see relatively little. In a sense, debt can be considered an asset, as it often represents cash that the company is putting to work ideally to increase the companys value. Another liability, accounts payable, represents invoices not yet paid. These can also be good, if the company is delaying payment until its due and using the money in the interim.Finally, shareholder equity, the difference between assets and liabilities, is the portion of the company that stockholders can claim.

I bought into Stratasys partly because 3-D printing is cool. I really thought it wouldve taken off more. I guess I am more of a geek for that kind of stuff than most. I still have the holding, and I dont know what I am going to do. Thankfully, it has been going back up lately, so I am doing the bad thing of hoping it goes back into the black or at least becomes less of a loss, so I can feel less pain when I sell it for the write-off. F.D., onlineThe Fool Responds: As you probably know, Stratasys shares fell further, dropping some 40 percent since you wrote to us and giving you an even bigger potential tax loss. Its not a bad company, and it may well be a great performer over the coming years but 3-D printing is still a relatively new and developing business. Its not yet clear how widespread its use will be, especially among consumers as opposed to industry. Its also not clear which 3-D printing companies will end up on top.A key error you made was waiting for a rebound when you no longer had great faith in the company. It would have been better to sell and move the money into a stock you had more confidence in. Shopping for DollarsThe main reason many have passed up shares of (Nasdaq: AMZN) is that they think the shares are overvalued. The stock has seemed overvalued for many years, though during which time it has surged in value. Amazon is rapidly consolidating retail market share, and it surpassed Wal-Mart last year as the largest U.S. retailer by market capitalization. Since June 2009, the official end to the Great Recession, Amazon has grown its market capitalization more than tenfold, while most other retailers have failed to match the S&P 500s performance. Better still, the shift toward e-commerce is only in the initial stages: Last quarter, e-commerce accounted for only 8.4 percent of all U.S. retail sales, and thats estimated to top 14 percent by 2020. Many have grumbled that Amazon has struggled with profitability. However, the company has put together a string of profitable quarters on the back of its Amazon Web Services (AWS) division. Throughout the first nine months of fiscal 2016, AWS provided roughly 9.4 percent of Amazons total revenue and 42.4 percent of its operating income. Plus, AWS is growing at a 59 percent year-over-year clip. With its market value recently topping $370 billion, Amazon is huge and growing. Risk-tolerant long-term investors may want to add some shares of the company to their shopping cart.

T.F., Flint, MichiganABitcoin, which debuted in 2009, is a digital or virtual currency. It exists online and permits payments between parties without a middleman, such as a bank. Its not issued by any government, either. Its a decentralized electronic payment system, not managed by any single entity the way Mastercard, Visa and PayPal oversee their respective payment networks. To use bitcoin, you need to buy bitcoins on one of many exchanges and store them in a digital wallet app. Many retailers like accepting bitcoin because theyre not charged a processing fee, as they are with credit cards. On the other hand, there is relatively little regulation of bitcoins, and the system is vulnerable to hacking. The value of a bitcoin is very volatile, too. A bitcoin went for about $13 in early 2013, topped $1,000 later in the year and dropped by 23 percent in a single day earlier this month, to below $900. ***QHow can I know what a companys intrinsic value is so that I can know when to sell it? E.B., Dothan, AlabamaAA stocks current price reflects its market value, while its intrinsic value suggests what its really worth. You can only estimate intrinsic value, which is based on factors such as profit margins, revenue growth and competitive advantages. Even among skilled professional stock analysts, estimates of a stocks intrinsic value will vary. It makes sense to sell a stock when it is above what you think its worth though if the company is strong and growing, hanging on can be the smarter move.

We ne xt w ee k s e he sh o Workshop outlines how to prevent, respond to a data breachData breaches and identity theft are among the most common security risks for businesses today. 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

Armstrong, MSN, ANP-BCDERMATOLOGY WITHOUT THE WAIT! Same Week Appointments Available FLORIDA WRITERSAn interstellar relationship that is at once eerie, humorous and romantic Mel-Khyor: An Interstellar Affair by Malcom J. Brenner. Eyes Open Media. 220 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95.This new novel by Punta Gorda resident Malcom J. Brenner is largely entertaining, though at times a bit confusing. Mainly, it follows stretches in the life of Susie Louise McGonagle, a teacher whose life is for the most part drab and dispiriting. Her first husband, Mitch, is a real loser who doesnt treat her well at all, eventually bringing another woman into the household as a kind of charity case that he takes pity on. But charity is not his real motive. Susie carries around a lot of anger and almost no self-esteem. Shes an easy mark for an abuser, and one like Mitch can sense her vulnerability. Their relationship with Mitch launches one of the novels several timelines, the earliest one. Susie needs a miracle to make her life worthwhile. Though she has children, she does not seem to be in love with mothering. Soon after readers come to understand Susies despair, they find her experiencing the strangest of occurrences: the visit of an egg-shaped space vehicle, black and glittery, that has been damaged and cannot get on its way home. Mel-Khyor, an elongated humanoid type with pointy ears, engages with Susie, easily breaking through the expected language barrier and asking for her help. Somehow, he senses that she has exactly the powers that are needed to repair the craft, aided by the great powers of the Ship itself. Mr. Brenner creates an interstellar relationship that is at once eerie, intellectually stimulating, humorous and romantic. His eye for real and imagined detail draws us into his largely improbable scenes. Susies very ordinariness is the hook. Its easy to believe in her; thus, its easy to believe in her experience with Mel-Khyor, including their sexual experience. Who would believe in Gullivers Travels if Jonathan Swift didnt first get us to believe in Gulliver? The fact that much of what Susie experiences becomes lost to memory allows for the possibility that she has been dreaming or is under a spell of some kind. But all of it is not lost. Later in her life, after having chosen to continue on earth rather than join Mel-Khyor in his far-away home, she is perplexed by bits and pieces of what comes back to her. So is her second husband, Toby, who uses his journalistic skills to attempt a verification of Susies unusual fragments of memory. Mr. Brenners treatment of Tobys quest is one of the books most successful sub-stories. The author covers a lot of earth-time, populating his story with a large cast of characters, not all of who are central to the Susie narrative. He allows us to enter the what-if mindset regarding alien landings that are part of American lore, especially in the western states where this novels action takes place. Large government installations, ominous power plants, forested areas that seem to cloak important secrets, strange doings on Indian reservations and off-beat religious communities (Wicca) are part of the atmospheric brew that Mr. Brenner serves. The books four alternating timelines develop segments or perspectives running from 1978 to 2004. For the most part, Mr. Brenners transitions from one timeline to another work smoothly. However, on several occasions I found myself disoriented by the handling of this technique. I had to page back to where the reintroduced timeline had been set aside, and even after doing that it was difficult to push forward and re-enter that plot stream. Mel-Khyor provides an interesting mixture of moods and offers an astute engagement with issues of culture, class and our capacity for dealing with difference. Mr. Brenner has fun with his premise by not taking it too seriously. This stance allows the reader to share the fun.About the authorMalcolm J. Brenner is the author of Wet Goddess: Recollections of a Dolphin Lover and Growing Up in the Orgone Box. His professional background is in journalism and investigative reporting, and he has written for the magazine Future Life as well as for magazines and newspapers in Southwest Florida and New Mexico. 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.

Marco museum poised to debut Pioneer Era permanent exhibitThe Marco Island Historical Society invites the public to the grand opening of The Pioneer Era: A Tale of Two Villages, from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, at the Marco Island Historical Museum. The interactive permanent exhibit goes high-tech to engage visitors in a decidedly low-tech period in Marco Islands history, says Austin Bell, the museums curator of collections. The Pioneer Era gallery bridges the gap between the museums Paradise Found exhibit about the Calusa and its Modern Marco Island display, chronicling the evolution of the pioneer villages at Marco and Caxambas during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The most prominent feature is a Florida cracker cabin where visitors can sit and view films about Marco history. Visitors also enjoy a glimpse of island live during the early 1900s through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. Saloma Olds, one of three daughters of early Marco settlers Drs. Louis and Mary Olds, began writing a diary in 1913 and recorded her familys story in great and charming detail. For the opening reception, MIHS historical re-enactors will wander the museum, bringing Marcos early pioneers to life. Admission is free, and all are welcome. The Pioneer Era was developed in collaboration with Collier County Museums and MIHS. Creative Arts Unlimited produced the exhibit renderings and served as the design and fabrication team. Creative Arts also produced the museums Paradise Found and Modern Marco Island exhibits. The Marco Island Historical Museum at 180 S. Heathwood Drive is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. Admission is free, although donations are always welcome. For more information, call 642-1440 or visit


C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIts a very intimate space, its our sacred space, Stacey Todd says about the StoryCorps recording studio on wheels that goes around the country collecting and preserving conversations. Snippets of these conversations can be heard on NPRs Morning Edition as well as at Ms. Todd, 34, is the site manager for the StoryCorps mobile tour. Her business card reads: Our mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives. On last years tour, 1,403 stories were recorded. The mobile studio visits 10 cities a year, recording in each place for four or five weeks. It arrived in Fort Myers Jan. 5 and will be here through Feb. 3, hosted by WGCU Public Media in partnership with the downtown library. Even though its called StoryCorps, the recordings made there are more conversations between two people than they are polished presentations. Its not a traditional oral history model or a formal interview by any means, Ms. Todd explains. Its meant to be an uninterrupted conversation between you and someone you care about, or would like to learn more about. I tell people its an opportunity to sit down and ask questions you maybe wouldnt ever have thought to ask, an opportunity to get to know somebody in a different way, or in a way you didnt know before. A facilitator is always in the room, as a silent witness to the conversation and also to ensure the equipment runs properly and to take notes as a summary of the conversation. Afterward, the participants decide if they want their conversation to be archived at the American Folklife Center, where anyone can go and listen to it. Its very seldom that people dont want their conversation to be archived, Ms. Todd says. They feel its leaving a mark and a legacy. We hope it empowers people, gives them the power to believe in their own voice. Putting a microphone in front of someone and asking them to talk about their lives tells them their story matters. And giving them the opportunity to archive it, to preserve it in this institution, goes one step further.Some historyDavid Isay founded StoryCorps in 2003 with the first listening booth in New Yorks Grand Central Terminal. (There are now listening booths in Atlanta, San Francisco and Chicago.) As a kid, he interviewed his grandparents and two great aunts after Thanksgiving dinner one year. It sparked his belief that everyone has a story, that that these stories must be collected. As Mr. Isay explained in his TED talk, Its kind of the anti-reality TV. Nobody comes to StoryCorps to get rich. Nobody comes to get famous. Its simply an act of generosity and love. So many of these are just everyday people talking about lives lived with kindness, courage, decency and dignity, and when you hear that kind of story, it can sometimes feel like youre walking on holy ground. The StoryCorps archive is the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered, he says. Every life, every single life, matters equally and infinitely, he believes. A year and a half ago, when Amy Tardif, station manager and news director at WGCU-FM, served as a panelist at a conference of the Native American Journalists Association in Washington, D.C., she was approached afterward by Jordan Bullard, who is in charge of presite investigations for StoryCorps. Ms. Tardif had spoken about the cultural ties between indigenous women of Central America and the Seminole indigenous women, and how she wished they could talk with each other. Mr. Bullard expressed interest in having the StoryCorps Airstream come to Fort Myers. Ms. Tardif is delighted to have the recording studio here this month. Its real people telling their real stories, she says. (Its refreshing) when youre used to hearing sound bites from politician and officials. This isnt necessarily news. These are the things that tug at your heart. Theyre the human tales in life. It could be happy, it could be sad. But it gets you. Its a lesson of some sort love, hate, memories. And we want to hear from real people. We all do, these days.An informed conversationThe soundproof recording space is cozy, almost like being in a womb. The lights are low, the outside world shut out completely. People sit face to face across a small, white table. You can talk about whatever you want, says Ms. Todd. We have no agenda You dont even have to know what youre going to talk about, though its good to have a rough idea. On its website, StoryCorps offers pages of suggested questions people might want to use: Who has been the most important person in your life? What was the happiest moment in your life? The saddest? What are you proudest of? How has your life been different from what youd imagined? What do you want to be remembered for? Its an informal conversation. Its not meant to be scripted, Ms. Todd says. Theres no way to do this wrong. When StoryCorps visited her hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., Ms. Todd flew back there to interview her mother. She was surprised to discover something new about her mother from the very first question. She asked her: Whats your earliest memory? I always thought of my mother as a Goody Two-Shoes, someone who never got in trouble, she says. And without skipping a beat, my mother said, Lighting my brothers archery set on fire. We talked about things wed probably talked about before, and the conversation went on in that manner, she says. But I have a new appreciation for her personality and who she is.Time is shortAlthough 40 minutes might sound like a lot of time to be recorded talking, most people remark on how quickly it goes by, Ms. Todd says. It usually takes the first 10-15 minutes to get warmed up. At around 35 minutes, the real juicy stuff starts coming out, she says. When she facilitates a conversation, she tells the participants when they have 10 minutes left, five minutes left, one minute. When I give you a 10-minute warning, if theres something you really want to say or really want to ask, its still a good chunk of time, she says. Thats when to do it. Shes heard every kind of experience imaginable. Ive heard participants that will stay with me forever, she says. I learn something from every single person I sit in on. People always surprise me. You really cant make assumptions about anybody. People often get emotional, laughing or crying. Though it can be therapeutic, the StoryCorps experience isnt meant to be therapy, she says. But people often have very profound experiences, because a lot of times theyre talking to a loved one about things theyve never talked about before When people exit, there really is a glow about them. They shared something meaningful, hopefully. And while StoryCorps isnt traditional oral history, it pays tribute to the late oral historian Studs Terkel, known for interviewing everyday Americans about work, race and their experiences during The Great Depression and WWII. A small portrait of Studs hangs by the front door of the StoryCorps Airstream. Painted by Beverly Finster, daughter of outsider artist Howard Finster, the portrait reads: Dedicated to Studs Terkel. The master on whose shoulders we stand. His spirit illuminates our path. When Mr. Isay opened the first StoryCorps booth 13 years ago, Studs flew from Chicago to cut the ribbon. He was 91 at the time. Listening is an act of l ove, says Ms. Todd, echoing Mr. Isays belief. Being a good listener is really a skill, a hardearned skill. Especially in the world we live in now, it seems that everybodys shouting at each other and nobodys listening. We hope to turn up the listening a little bit.

Lutronix Inni From Puccini to Cole Porter, soprano Patricia Racette sings it all at gala benefit for Gulfshore Opera BY RANDALL KENNETH JONESSpecial to Florida Weekly Not long into my conversation with opera superstar Patricia Racette, I realized my great fortune. Though the opera-loving public is keenly aware of her glorious singing voice, the internationally celebrated soprano was providing me a rare treat: the sound of her speaking voice and a glimpse inside the considerable heart that guides her selection of words. I had a front-row seat to the wisdom, artistry and humanity that have taken the Bedford, N.H., native to the Metropolitan Opera and beyond. Ms. Racette comes to Southwest Florida to perform for Gulfshore Opera at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22, at First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs. For the first act of the program, shell share the stage with the companys professional artists in residence as she performs some of her signature Puccini arias; the second half of the program will be songs from her Diva on Detour album of works by Stephen Sondheim, George Gershwin, Edith Piaf and more. The album, which was recorded in a studio with an invited audience, represents Ms. Race ttes musical coming-of-age: Cabaret is what came first so, for me, its like coming home, she says, adding, Opera is the interloper in my musical life. Some interloper. Her current season contains a triple run of the title role of Salome for the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera and Pittsburgh Opera. Only in a live performance, the undisputed diva says, can the most beautiful, soulful passages reach a person in a way that words cannot possibly describe. Live performance is very important, especially as our work goes more technological. It keeps our mutual humanity alive. A musical experience a concert cannot be texted. With a planned musical transition from Puccini to Cole Porter, Ms. Racette is poised to run the gamut with a touching yet majestic something for everyone performance as a benefit for Gulfshore Opera. Tickets start at $28 for the concert alone; premium ticket holders will enjoy a reception with the artists and dinner at the Bonita Bay Club following the concert. The Gulfshore Opera Gala>> Who: Soprana Patricia Racette and Gulfshore Operas professional artists in residence >> When: 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22 >> Where: First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs >> Tickets: $28 for concert alone; $200 for a reception with the artists and dinner at the Bonita Bay Club after the concert. >> Info: 529-3925 or

SHANNON QUINN Special Events 659-3108 ARTS COMMENTARYDo This: Struggling with autism at Gulfshore PlayhouseWhat do you do when life knocks you off track? Ideally, you realize youre in uncharted territory and make your way as best you can, creating your own path. For the unnamed mother (Carmen Cusack) in Do This whose son is diagnosed with autism when hes 2, that means advocating for him, quitting her job and becoming the CEO of my sons life, as she puts it. This fictionalized autobiographical one-woman play by Karen Siff Exkorn is enjoying its world premiere at Gulfshore Playhouse, presented by special arrangement with Tony Award-winning producer Ken Davenport. Do This opens with the disembodied voice of an authority declaring that the womans son will never speak again. The toddler has stopped talking and appears to be in his own world. He flaps his arms. He spins. He stares into space. He doesnt like to be touched. The mother then goes from pediatrician to audiologist to therapist, until she finally receives the diagnosis: autism. In one of the plays funnier moments, she wryly contemplates how God chose to give her son autism. Perhaps he was at a typewriter and misspelled the word awesome, she speculates. Or maybe he has a broad Boston accent and was actually saying artistic, but the New York temp for the day misunderstood him. These moments of levity, of dark humor, are sorely needed as she battles bureaucracy, waits days for vital return phone calls and struggles to get help for her son, only to be told there is none available. On the advice of a lawyer, she decides to sue the organization that was supposed to help her, but didnt. While realistic, this play is, at times, grueling to sit through. It can feel claustrophobic. Thankfully, Ms. Cusack, who just concluded her Tony-nominated role in the Steve Martin/Edie Brickells Broadway musical Bright Star, is engaging and likeable. And the playwright has some great lines that Ms. Cusack tosses off like a comedic pro. She makes us want to go along on the journey with her, as difficult as it is. But its obvious this is still very much a work in progress. (After Naples, the play will be reworked and workshopped in New York City.) Do This, which ran 85 minutes the night I saw it, has, in an early incarnation, run for almost two hours. The playwright was still doing rewrites on opening night. Ms. Exkorn is the author of The Autism Sourcebook: Everything You Need to Know About Diagnosis, Treatment, Coping, and Healing from a Mother Whose Child Recovered. Her play is a more dramatic look at her experiences. While Do This has its moments, I think it could be richer if it veered even more from what really happened. While it may be an accurate re-telling of Ms. Exkorns experience with her son which would be great as a written memoir it doesnt necessarily stand as a gripping dramatic piece. At least, not how it is right now. As an audience member, I felt it difficult to sit through the red tape and bureaucracy, the endless therapy sessions the son undergoes where hes told repeatedly, Do this. The mother quits her job. Her marriage suffers. Her friendships fall by the wayside, as no one really understands what shes going through. An interesting scene with a rabbi perks up the play considerably. Not only is it unpredictable you wonder, where did this come from? Where is this going? but its a surprise. As a member of the audience said in the talk-back after the show, the scene presents an ideal opportunity for the mother to question why bad things happen to good people. Instead, however, she ponders heaven and hell. The rabbi is also somewhat of an enigma; he believes in reincarnation, not exactly an Old Testament concept. The ending of the play, when it occurs, seems to happen too suddenly, and is an atypical experience for those struggling with autism. (It was also unclear to many in the audience what the closing words were.) Ms. Cusack is talented with accents, slipping into the roles of others, such as the various therapists her character consults and fellow shoppers at Loehmanns, a famous store in Brooklyn where women could buy designer clothing at bargain prices. (The latters a particularly humorous scene, and pure New York.) But although her character says shes a New Yorker, she sometimes sounds Southern, especially when shes quoting my mother, the psychiatrist. Thats confusing. I was also confused when she started talking about turning her basement into a therapy room for her son and driving the car to the bank. I had pictured her living in Manhattan, and suddenly, I didnt know where she was. The play has pieces of promise, but theyre not all fitting together yet. It works best when there is humor, incorporating Ms. Exkorns wry observations and clever turns of phrase. As someone without children, I confess, it was difficult at times to relate to this play. (However, a friend whose two children have autism was so moved the night she attended, she cried during the performance because she saw her life and her experiences re-enacted on the stage.) Whether you know anyone with autism might affect how you feel about Do This. Ms. Cusack has said she was drawn to the role, in part, because she has two nieces with autism. Jason Sherwood has created an inviting minimalist set with white gauze curtains and empty picture frames hanging at various levels. There are boxes all over, a black-and-white checkered floor and a rectangle representing the ceiling. Its a clever, smart set, complemented by lighting by Jimmy Lawlor that changes both mood and locale. Leon Rothenberg provides subtle soundscapes the click-clack of a manual typewriter, the twitter of birds in a park. And Genevieve V. Beller clothes the mother in outfits from grubby sweats to tailored skirt. Tony-nominated director Sheryl Kaller does an apt job with the staging, having Ms. Cusack make the best use of the space. Shes also been highly instrumental in helping shape this play with Ms. Exkorn. But its obvious that, at this early point in the plays development, it needs more molding and finessing. Ms. Cusack does a superb job with the material shes given. Its a challenge to any actor to memorize and perform a one-person play; here, Ms. Cusack has also had to deal with numerous rewrites, cuts and other changes. As it stands right now, Do This seems to have limited appeal, interesting mainly to those who want to know more about autism or those who know people with it. And thats not a bad thing. But if the playwright and producer want to make it more universal, they need to do this: open it up more and make it more engaging for all of us.

Stay with it. The results will be well worth your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might feel overwhelmed at having to decide which new opportunity you should follow. Best advice: Check them all out and see which offers what you really want. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Continue to tread water before you even consider plunging into something that never seemed quite right. Some facts will soon emerge that can help you make a decision. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changes youve waited to see in your work situation might not be happening quite as quickly as youd hoped. Although the pace is slow, its ongoing. Expect to hear news soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You should be feeling very proud of the fine effort youve made to get that important project done. Now take some time out to celebrate with family and friends. Youve earned it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youre close to reaching your objectives. Thats the good news. But be careful: Your aspects show lots of potential distractions looming. Stay focused and keep your eyes fixed on your goals. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be careful not to let that suspicious Cancerian mind create a problem where none exists. What you might believe is an act of betrayal could be nothing more than a misunderstanding. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Lions heart overflows with self-confidence. All you need to do is tap into it, and youll be able to handle any change that must be made regarding that recent surprise development. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The need to watch what you say becomes increasingly crucial this week. Be as temperate as you can with your comments and avoid arguments for the sake of controversy. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A longtime family problem presents new demands. But this time, you wont have to go it alone: Someone else is asking to help share your responsibilities. Let it happen. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A period of feeling vulnerable is about to give way to a stronger, more self-confident aspect. Use this new strength to reaffirm promises youve made to others and yourself. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A creative dilemma stalls your progress. Instead of letting it raise your ire, use the time to re-examine your aims and, perhaps, come up with a new target. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a natural-born peacemaker. You value truth and have little patience with those who lie to you for their own purposes. SEE ANSWERS, C11 SEE ANSWERS, C11


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 C13 SUBLIME FANTASTIC 26795 South Bay Drive Bonita Springs, Florida 34134Shop, dine andONE-OF-A-KIND DESTINATIONS.! CONTRACT BRIDGENever relaxBY STEVE BECKERThe game of bridge rarely allows its practitioners the luxury of relaxing. Those who adopt a casual attitude when an assignment looks particularly easy learn through bitter experience that nothing is certain until the requisite number of tricks have been safely tucked away. Consider this deal from the Open Pairs at the 1993 Israeli Bridge Festival in Tel Aviv. North-South Pam Granovetter and Kathie WeiSender of the United States reached a game few other pairs did. Ms. Wei-Sender then brought the contract home by avoiding a trap that would have ensnared many another declarer. West led a diamond to Easts ace, and East returned the heart jack. West won with the ace and returned the queen. Many declarers would have put up the king at this point and been jolted by Easts ruff. Eventually declarer would have lost a club to East to finish down one. Ms. Wei-Sender, a multinational and world champion, did not achieve that status by taking success for granted. Instead of risking a potential heart ruff by East, she played low from dummy on Wests queen, preserving the king for later. When West then led another heart, she again ducked in dummy, ruffing in her hand as East discarded diamonds on the second and third hearts. The A-K of spades were then cashed. When the queen fell, declarer claimed the remainder, discarding her losing club on the heart king to put the finishing touch on a well-played hand.

It notably lacks Mr. Scorseses dynamic style, and as a result is a dull bore of 161 minutes. Rated R. Hidden 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.

YesA movie as well written and acted as 0th Century Women must be seen. It must be seen by teenage boys who dont know how to act around girls. By teenage girls who allow peer pressure to dictate their actions. By middle-aged men and women who are lost souls in search of themselves. And by parents who are doing their best in a world thats constantly changing. It also must be seen by anyone who enjoys engaging dramas. Writer/director Mike Mills, whose first film, Beginners (2010), was based on his relationship with his father, this time tells his mothers story. Its 1979, and 15-year-old Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) is growing up in Santa Barbara, Calif., without a father. His mother, Dorothea (Annette Bening, great as usual), is liberal and loving, though ineffectual in certain regards. For a time she hopes her tenant/handyman William (Billy Crudup) can be a positive influence on Jamie, but soon realizes they have little in common. So to help her son become a man, Dorothea enlists her tenant Abbie (Greta Gerwig) and a teenage neighbor, Julie (Elle Fanning). Abbie, 25, has cancer and is into punk rock. And Julie already has captivated young Jamie; hes madly in love with her even though he doesnt know what real love is yet. All three women have a profound effect on Jamie, each in vastly different ways. Dorothea had Jamie when she was 40, and now at 55 openly admits to not understanding his generation. She also treats him like the man of the house. In one scene, she asks him to be home in case Abbie needs anything after seeing her oncologist. When he asks what to do if theres bad news, she tells him whatever it is he can handle it, and points out that men always try to fix things for women when all they need to do is just be there. Im not a man, Im just me, he says, clearly uncomfortable with what his mother is asking of him and the association shes giving him with manhood, which he knows he isnt ready for. Well, yes and no, she responds with a sly smile, and we know shes right: Hes too young and immature for full responsibility, but he needs to learn these things to become the man hes capable of being. Abbies influence is more cultural. She introduces Jamie to her music, teaches him how to talk to women and empower himself, and gives him feminist textbooks to read. Then theres Julie, who teaches Jamie about heartache and yearning. Shes a lost soul who values his friendship and their closeness, but she refuses to have sex with him. Live and learn, young man. 0th Century Women is also about the zeitgeist of the era, including cultural artifacts, values and generational conflicts consistent with the late 0s/ early s. When these artifacts combine with Roger Neills lively musical score, the frequent use of fast motion, garish costumes and a production design that feels old even for the 0s, we get the full scope of whats molding Jamie into who he will become. Furthermore, its in these details that the film feels lived in, like an old photo that brings up fine memories of a time gone by. Conveying this essence is extraordinarily difficult, but Mr. Mills succeeds in a wonderfully endearing way. dan >> Greta Gerwig and Bille Crudup also star in Jackie, though they dont share screen time.

HAPPY HOUR scott SIMMONS How a childhood find sparked an adult passion COLLECTORS CORNERFor nearly 20 years, there was one unanswered question in my family: What happened to my moms doll collection? You see, my great-grandmother was the ultimate shopper. She loved nothing more than to spend a day shopping in Indianapolis or Cincinnati. And if there was nothing she needed, she loved to buy things for others. My mother and my aunt were frequent recipients of her generosity and treasured the Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls their grandmother bought them. The painted bisque dolls were beautifully costumed in frocks evoking characters from history and fiction. And they had been carefully packed away when the family moved to Florida in 1958, only never to be seen again. That was until I came along. One year, while getting Christmas decorations down from my grandparents attic, I spied a hatbox. I opened it and there were the dolls. They had somehow survived the heat of 17 or 18 Florida summers and looked none the worse for it. They, along with the Madame Alexander my mom received for Christmas in 1948, started her on a new journey of collecting. Some 40 years later, my mom is involved in the Fort Myers and Naples doll clubs, each of which has shows in the coming weeks. My friends in the West Palm Beach area also plan a show in the next few weeks. Heres a schedule. Oh, yeah.

Thomas, who presents his oil paintings at the 20th annual Art Fest Naples this weekend at Fleischmann Park, has dedicated his life to recreating their magic. As a young man in 1986, Mr. Thomas suffered a ski accident that left him fully paralyzed. After losing his ability to indulge in the outdoor activities he so loved, he took up painting to fill his hours. I was terribly bored and needed something, he says. Painting became that something. I havent stopped in 30 years, and I enjoy it more now than at did at the beginning and I loved it at the beginning. Many quadriplegic people learn to perform daily tasks with a tool called a mouth stick, which enables them to lift and move small objects. Once Mr. Thomas mastered the use of his prosthesis for things like typing and turning the pages of a book, he taught himself how to paint using it. My wife tapes a paintbrush to the end of my mouth stick. Thats how I did it and still do it. His work is the result only an artist with a complicated relationship with motion and stillness can create. Consider The Dancer, his painting of a great blue heron against a stark black background looking upward. Inspired by Edward Degas sculpture Little Dancer of 14 Years, Mr. Thomas reinterpreted the young subjects look of anticipation and repose in the birds hunched posture. The subjects are still, but both artists express tension with upward gazes and textures that are reflected in the girls pleated skirt and the herons detailed feathers. I loved the pose, and herons are poetic in their flight. As you see them moving across the water its pretty much like a ballerina, he says. I took that idea and applied it to something Im directly familiar with. Depicting wildlife and the outdoors came naturally after that accident that paralyzed him (he ran into a tree and broke his third and fourth cervical vertebrae). In his previous life, Mr. Thomas was an outdoorsman who enjoyed kayaking, camping, cycling, camping and skiing. Once he picked up a paintbrush, birds and flight emerged as recurring themes throughout his work. Im used to using realism to paint a scene in a very unusual manner, like with oversized shells with birds flying out. Its a distorted perspective, he says. Its just the thought of looking beyond the usual. Mr. Thomas and his wife, Anne, split the year between Fort Myers and North Carolina. The pair work about 14 art shows in the area between November and April, including the upcoming Art Fest. Finding his artistic talent has been a blessing, he says, in that it provided him with a career and a creative outlet after his life-changing injury. Its been everything, he says. Its allowed us to stay engaged socially and were able to make a living. Its been our lives purpose. He will continue to explore different techniques and subjects in his painting. Ill always be partial to nature, he says. But I would like to try more portraiture. The skys the limit. Marcus C. Thomas in his home studio.

Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelets with lobster and Brie and even some breakfast appetizers. I can personally attest to the deliciousness of the Baked Brie Delight (a slab of warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce paired with toasted French bread). Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo (an omelet with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions); and the Hey Lucy! (an omelet with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar). A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Rodizio Grill, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago Drive, Estero; 4980018 The latest dining addition at Coconut Point re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-can-eat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding three-foot skewers and scary looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, one of which is that you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. We sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items (including some exquisitely tender hearts). The tritip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Bacon-wrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 Moura Bistro, Meridian Marketplace, 3369 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 738-8883 This cozy little bistro offers the flavors of Lebanon and the Mediterranean: hummus, kibbeh, shawarma, kebabs, falafel and such. Vegetarians and meat lovers alike will find plenty on which to feast. Both the smoky baba ghannoush dip and the spinach pie were great starters. Platters of shawarma chicken and falafel came piled high. The chicken had a great smoky flavor and spicy mayo for dipping, while the crisp falafel came with creamy tahini and garlic potatoes. The baklava had just enough honey but not so much that it drowned out the nuts and pastry. On Friday and Saturday night, a belly dancer provides entertainment. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Petars Restaurant, 3300 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 494-1343 Petars seats only 32 indoors and a handful outside and serves just a halfdozen each of appetizers and entrees. But former Ritz-Carlton chef Petar Al Kurdi proves theres a lot to be said for offering a small menu, cooking with the freshest seasonal ingredients and plating each dish with precision and panache. His crab cakes are so free of filler ingredients that it was difficult to tell what was holding the moist jumbo lump meat together. Fresh pasta and skillfully simmered risotto are mainstays, and exquisite Wagyu beef might turn up as a juicy strip steak with parsnip puree or tucked into Bolognese with pasta. Each dish from appetizer to entree was garnished with snippets of green herbs such as dill and parsley, which added a final flourish of freshness to the plates. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed: February 2016 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Run by chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, the menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. Offerings change frequently, depending on what products are available. If they are available on your visit, I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry. The sauce sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions is good enough to drink on its own. Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted allnatural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, softboiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. An dont skip dessert; everything is homemade.

The Marlin Bar is a new, casual concept by the retail fashion and restaurant chain Tommy Bahama that opened at the end of November. Unlike most of the centers restaurants, which are located on the outer perimeter, the Marlin Bar sits right on Fashion Drive, the main shopping thoroughfare, wrapping around the existing Tommy Bahama boutique. That makes it a convenient alternative for shoppers who want to take a quick break for a pick-me-up or unwind after a day of store hopping without having to leave the retail hub. Nothing like a blood orange margarita and a couple of jerkchicken tacos to perk up the spent spirits. The weather was perfect last week for alfresco dining. Competition for tables can be stiff during peak dining hours, but we were able to get a four-top under an umbrella after waiting five or 10 minutes. Food and drink orders are placed at a walkup bar and delivered to the tables, but one server bent the rules a bit and was nice enough to take our order at the table. Handcrafted cocktails outnumber the beer and wine options and even, for that matter, the food choices. True to the Tommy Bahama aesthetic, there are a halfdozen rum concoctions blended with pineapple, coconut and citrus. The martinis and signature cocktails are equally fruity. The classic mojito ($11) was sweetened with sugar cane syrup that balanced out the tartness of lime juice and citrus-infused rum. Equally refreshing was the Cucumber Smash ($12.50), a mixture of Hendricks gin, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, lime and muddled cucumbers. Pricey? Yes, but consider those top-shelf spirits. With food prices topping out at $12, its easy to try a broad sampling of the brief menu. So-called snacks include craft beer cheese and guacamole; salads and rice bowls are topped with proteins that make them substantial enough to serve as entres; and handhelds are a couple of sandwiches and tacos with assorted fillings. Some items, such as a chicken-andmango salad and ahi tuna tacos, are carryovers from Tommy Bahama Restaurants, but the overall approach is closer to bar basics than fancy food. Thats not to say the food isnt taken seriously. The dishes we sampled were flavorful and attractively presented on ecofriendly recyclable plates and bowls. The world famous coconut shrimp ($9) was an excellent rendition of a dish thats a culinary clich in Southwest Florida. The three jumbo shrimp were succulent within their crisp and flaky coconut coating, which adhered nicely rather than crumbling off the shellfish. They were served with a papaya mango chutney that complemented them well not too sweet, not too spicy and a small helping of island slaw, a citrusy salad with shredded cabbage, red onion and cilantro. Grain bowls have been gaining popularity in the last year, so offering brown rice topped with seafood and items like pickled vegetables and seeds is a smart choice by the corporate decision-makers. The blackened mahi-mahi bowl ($9) was piled high with rice, baby greens, sweet cabbage slaw, roasted corn, diced tomato, mango salsa and avocado. Drizzled with lime sour cream and sprinkled with fried wontons, it was a cornucopia of contrasting colors, flavors and textures. Although I would have preferred more seasoning on the fish blackened mahi usually is much spicier the fillet was perfectly cooked and a satisfying portion for the price.The Cuban sandwich ($10) was a fine interpretation of the classic toasted roll filled with thinly sliced ham and pork, pickles and Swiss cheese (but I would have liked more cheese). Purists may balk, but the nontraditional additions of trendy chipotle aioli and sriracha mustard do no harm, and its good that the menu warns diners of these spicy condiments. The tacos can be ordered with fish, beef, chicken, pork or roasted vegetables. The pork version ($8) consisted of two flour tortillas stuffed with juicy shredded shoulder meat topped with a smoky roasted pepper salsa, island slaw, pickled red onions, crumbled feta and lime sour cream. They wont replace my favorite mom-and-pop taquerias tacos, but they were loaded with flavor and appropriately upscaled for the location. I didnt see any evidence of dessert offerings at Marlin Bar, but ice cream, frozen yogurt and macarons are never far away at Coconut Point. And wouldnt you really rather have another mojito or margarita anyway?

JAXI, 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 chef-inspired 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.

Future Seaglass residents impressed by standard and custom finish selectionsFuture residents of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower at Bonita Bay continue to be impressed by the caliber and range of the standard and custom finish selections the award-winning Ronto Group is making available to homebuyers. Numerous buyers have taken advantage of Rontos innovative Finishing Touches Program that allows future residents to select finishes for their homes flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. The level of customization and flexibility available through the Program is extremely rare. The quality and variety of the kitchen and bath cabinetry choices provide an indication of the extent to which Ronto is ensuring each residence is finished to each owners specific tastes. Future residents visiting the Seaglass Design Studio located in the Seaglass Sales Center are invited to meet with Mary Kelley Zajaczkowski, Lead Designer for the Gulf Atlantic Design Group, the provider of cabinetry products at Seaglass. Zajaczkowski presents the standard cabinetry layout. If the future resident chooses to customize their cabinets, she will go through the standard layout cabinet by cabinet to ensure changes are made to accommodate the residents preferences. She then creates a set of 3-D renderings for the residents review and approval. I oversee every design to make sure it is up to our standards and up to the clients standards, said Zajaczkowski. What makes our product special is the finish and the quality. Even the base level that we offer comes with soft closing doors and drawers, 5/8 Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) boxes finished in a maple melamine, and dovetailed drawer boxes. Plywood boxes with plywood drawer bottoms are available. We go all the way up to doing curved radius cabinetry and any kind of custom built-in can be designed and fabricated entertainment centers, dining room buffets, built-ins, or decorative furniture pieces the client might want to customize to match their cabinetry. All of the available cabinet door choices can be used on either an MDF box or a plywood box. Various door styles are available, including a traditional raised panel, a transitional style recessed panel, and contemporary styles such as shaker, flat center panel with square frames, and ultra-clean lined slab doors. Each of the styles can come with a touchless opening system. An upgraded C channel stainless steel or aluminum track can be utilized in between the doors and drawers that allows the user to simply reach in and pull the drawer out. The cabinet doors are either birch or maple. Painted doors consist of maple frames with an MDF center panel that minimizes the movement of the center panel. Low Volatile Organic Compound paints or stains are used to finish the cabinets to ensure residents are not exposed to lingering unhealthy gases. The Gulf Atlantic Design Group works directly with future residents of Seaglass to design and produce specialty pieces that can enhance both the look and the functionality of the home. These could include entertainment centers, built-ins, buffets for the dining room, and unique furniture pieces. When it comes to specialty pieces, the process starts with a meeting with the client, said Zajaczkowski. I ask questions about their lifestyle do they like to entertain, do they have grandchildren our young children and get a sense of how they like to use their spaces. Some clients will bring inspiration photos that give me an idea of what they like and dont like. I come up with something I think will suit their needs. Its a back and forth process sometimes. Ill send them a rendering and theyll sometimes say Well, wed like a little more shelving or a little more storage, and I come up with something thats totally customized for the client. Those custom pieces can be made out of the same doors and finishes that are standard, but they dont have to be. Really, the sky is the limit. A fully outfitted kitchen featuring the finishes and Thermadore appliances available at Seaglass is included at the Design Studio, as well as stone, porcelain, and wood flooring and carpet selections; granite, marble, and quartz countertops; decorative backsplashes; trim, doors, faucets, and plumbing fixtures; and a gas grill. Future residents are invited to meet with the Finishing Touches Coordinator along with their own interior designer and may also specify finishes from other sources. The Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center are open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Three luxurious Seaglass tower residence great room floor plans ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air are priced from just over $1 million.

Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, and a 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. The amenities at Kalea Bay rival some of the finest in the world, said Wilson. Our 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. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 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. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

With that said, as more American families choose to travel within the U.S for holidays and vacations, the need for a 7-passenger vehicle will increase. And yes, we have them!H as your vision for the future of your business changed in any way leading into 2017?No, for most individuals and families, purchasing a home is the largest transaction they will make in their lifetime. As I stated last year, the purchase of an automobile is the second largest transaction that most individuals are involved in during their lifetime. Still, while the Internet has changed retailing, I continue to believe that auto customers would like to purchase from a local community involved Dealership. I take great pride in knowing, that for the past 26 year, Don Gasgarths Charlotte County Ford remains focused on our local community and continues to be involved! That continues to be our vision for 2017 and beyond. Yes, there is still a place for a locally owned Dealership to meet the community needs. I hope to be that Dealer serv ing Southwest Florida for years to come!. W hat would people be surprised to know about you?My motto: Ask, ask, ask.

And as youll discover below, whether youre a first-time visitor or seasoned pro, there are some things you need to know before you go.The scoop on the shelling stoopIf youve already visited one of our beaches, you probably unknowingly mastered Southwest Floridas signature move. The Stoop or Sanibel Stoop is the Vogue of the seashore without the stilettos. Shorts and bathing suits are the preferred attire (sandals optional) as you bend forward (no, its not a twerk), eyes scanning the surf and the sand, and arm ready to reach out and snatch a perfect shell specimen before the tide or another sheller claims it. Our coastline is world-renowned for serious shelling and Sanibel Island is its epicenter. Lying east-west sets up the islands pristine beaches to collect a pirates bounty of shells, including some rarities like the junonia and mini lions paw. Prime pickings are best during an ebb ing high tide and following a storm; both churn shells onto the beach. Along with neighboring Captiva, the two islands are affectionately dubbed the Shell Islands for their treasure trove of lightning whelks, tulips, olives, coquinas and other gifts from the sea. Hire a captain to shuttle you to Cayo Costa, a remote by-water-only island, where early mornings showcase inches of new arrivals. Or venture north to hunt for ancient sharks teeth along Englewood Beach in Char lotte County. For serious shelling bring a bucket or a sand-sifting scoop to dig deep.

But the ulti mate perk of Florida winter is being able to dine outside. In January. With little more than a sweater to ward off a chill. Its why even restaurants that arent on the water figure out a way to cluster some table outside. In places like Old Naples, downtown Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, sidewalk tables afford great spot from which to people watch while dining. At the beaches, there are spectacular water views, often with sunset vistas as a bonus. And just in case the air gets a bit brisk, most establishments have outdoor heaters to keep you toasty. That said, its always a good idea to take a sweater with you. Here are four of my favorite spots for dining al fresco. NaplesWhen it comes to a restaurant in which the view and the food are both memorable, M Waterfront Grille has few peers. This Naples favorite offers a stunning view of Venetian Bay along with excellent food and excep tional service. And as if thats not enough, the wine list is exemplary as well. The management describes the cuisine as cuttingedge continental a term coined by former executive chef Brian Roland and still used by current chef John Berry. What that means is food that isnt fussy but is fresh and carefully composed. The kitchen makes its own butter and you may be tempted to make a meal of the bread as a result. Fresh fish selections and steaks are expertly executed but vegetables get their due as well. Try to save some room for dessert as these are all house-made and superb as well. And then there is that spectacular view, made even S When it comes to a restaurant in which the view and the food are both memorable, M Waterfront Grille has few peers.VANDY MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHY

The food here has something of an island flavor as well, with a preponderance of seafood and casual fare.

Thomas Edison (or Mr. Edison as many of the local old-timers still refer to him), was this areas most famous snowbird. He, along with his friend and next door neighbor, Henry Ford, are why so many northerners followed his lead and migrated to the sunny banks of the Caloosahatchee River. When Thomas Edison and his wife Mina, decided on Fort Myers as a winter retreat in 1885, they built their waterfront home just outside downtown. Later, they added a botanical garden and a laboratory where Edison researched exotic plants and trees. In 1911, Henry Ford purchased the adjoining property to the Edisons for he and his wife Claras winter escapes from chilly Detroit. Today, the Edison & Ford Winter Estates are one of the most popular historical attractions in Southwest Florida and attracts up to 250,000 visitors a year. Touring the properties provide the rare experience of stepping back in time to old Florida and reliving how the man who discovered the light bulb discovered his paradise -and came up with the famous quote, There is only one Fort Myers and there are 90 million people who are going to find it out.Edison & Ford Winter Estates 2350 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers 334-7419 www.edisonfordwinterestates.orgPrimate Expedition Cruise Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens One of the best things about Southwest Florida is discovering the unexpected.

A true resort style hotel, over the years the inn added an exclusive beach and an 18-hole golf course where the likes of J.P. Morgan teed off in the warm Southwest Florida sun. These days, not much has changed at this laid-back, yet luxurious resort that has famously attracted folks with last names like Bush, Hepburn, and Buffet. But, its not the flash and the crowds that bring politicians, actors, and writers to the Gasparilla Inn in fact, its just the opposite. The Gasparilla Inn allows its guests to experience old Florida at its most relaxed and peaceful. The inn and cottages still have a 1930s feel, yet with all the modern conveniences. Plus, there are several eateries at the resort, including the famous Pink Elephant (known to regulars as The Pink) which serves up some of the finest fresh seafood from local waters. The Gasparilla Inn may be known for its mellow vibe, but theres plenty to do from getting pampered in the spa to playing croquet to enjoying romantic sunset views on the beach.

The Sun Harvest experience begins with a stroll through sliding doors into a refreshing, 5000 square foot, market-style retail store, where the aroma of citrus lingers pleasantly. The atmosphere is bright and friendly. Following the orange scent, the curious customer soon finds himself enjoying cut wedges of fresh Florida citrus, and imbibing samples of citrus juices squeezed on the premises (five flavors in all). It is perhaps for this feature that one Facebook fan dubbed Sun Harvest the best bar in town -teetotaler friendly, of course. The word fresh, when used to describe Sun Harvests citrus is no overstatement. The fruit ships across the state on the day its harvested from the companys familyowned, Indian River groves. After being processed in Sun Harvests onsite packing house, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and tangelos arrive at one of three destinations: the gift fruit line-up, the retail store, or the juice room, which visitors can view through a large window in the back. The fruit, hand selected for premium quality, draws a crowd of its own. But what makes this store even more delightful is its dimension. In addition to citrus, patrons encounter a long line of specialty foods and gifts, including gourmet treats, premium fruit wines, soft serve ice cream, smoothies, candies, and decorative home items. Novelties abound, nicely tempered by tradition, and a full service Post Office sits just off the retail floor, adding convenience to the stores already long list of virtues.

DSC42 42 DESTINATION SWFL 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY DSC43 BY FLORIDA WEEKLY STAFFnews@oridaweekly.comACK IN THE EARLY 1980S, SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WAS about as bike unfriendly as an area could get. Bike lanes, paved shoulders and shared sidepaths werent what traffic engineers cared about they just needed traffic lanes to keep up with the double digit rate of population growth, so thats what they built. But things have changed. Today, Southwest Florida boasts four bicycle-friendly cities according to the League of American Bicyclists Naples, Cape Coral, Sanibel and Venice. Thats more than a quarter of the bike-friendly communities in all of Florida. Our network of pathways and bike lanes has expanded quite dramatically, especially in the past five to 10 years, said Dan Moser, a longtime bicycle/pedestrian advocate and traffic safety professional.

FSW has hosted a slew of special guests and events, offering new perspectives and experiences to students. From local celebrities like chocolatier Norman Love, to best-selling author Garth Stein, investigative journalist Edwin Black, to the Tibetan monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, all have offered motivation for students to think outside of the box, to embrace their creativity, to welcome a variety of opinions, and to not be afraid to ght against injustice. When Virginia Tech Civil Engineering Professor Dr. Marc Edwards visited FSW to speak about his experiences exposing the Washington D.C. and Flint, Mich. water crises, he also attended opening night of Professor Stuart Browns Theater Programs fall production, Paragon Springs, and held a talkback with the performers and audience following the show. We are training the scientists of the future at FSW, said Brown. And we owe it to them to have the dif cult discussions here in a safe environment so that they are prepared to face the challenges ahead with an ethical framework already in place.
