FWC wants to know SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWith cooler temperatures throughout the Sunshine State, more people are likely to head to the woods to enjoy hiking, wildlife viewing, fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking the public to assist with Florida panther research and management by reporting sightings of the large feline to the agencys panther sightings webpage. The FWC is interested in photos of panthers or their tracks. Anyone lucky enough to capture this large cat on camera is encouraged to submit the picture and sighting location to www.MyFWC. com/PantherSightings. We really value citizen science here at the FWC. People taking pictures of panthers and submitting them to our webpage helps us to better understand panther range, said Kipp Frohlich, deputy director of the FWCs Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. Information about sightings also helps with the commissions efforts to better manage human-panther interactions through landowner assistance, outreach and education, he added.

Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | Coastal SOPHISTICATION roger COMMENTARYThe Coldfoot solutionWere wasting our time with Alaska, squandering its potential. I expected a lot more from President Trump and counselor Steve Bannon by now. The place just sits up there like a big postcard populated by 1.3 individuals per square mile. The total population is less than 750,000, which is roughly the population of Lee County and half the population of Palm Beach County. With 663,300 square miles, Alaska is so big you could fit about 10 Sunshine States in it. Are we using that resource wisely? Of course not. We just stare at it in pictures or from the deck railings of cruise liners. A few people have traveled there to catch a salmon or shoot a bear. Thats about it. Americans are supposed to be pragmatic, a people of ingenuity and git r done make-do at least we tell ourselves that. I question such a characterization, however, when we could be mining, drilling and fracking the state from its belly button to its b ackbone if the damn liberals hadnt put up so many regulations. But now another opportunity presents itself for a dynamic leader like Mr. Trump. Now, we should use the last frontier as a solution to the refugee problem, the illegal immigrant problem and the problem of containment, all at once. Starting next week his fourth in office the president should issue an executive order declaring Alaska the Refugee Relief State. From now on, the United States should absorb any refugees or illegal immigrants who cross our borders. We should immediately confer citizenship on all of them. And then we should ship them all to Alaska the next day, delivering them by truck to somewhere north of Coldfoot. Theres plenty of room in Coldfoot, lying on the Dalton Highway in the Yukon. The 2010 Census tallied its population at 10. Take Syria, for example. Western Europe and the U.S. are all worked up about a few refugees from that paltry little piece of desert (71,498 square miles) when the president only has to order in a SEAL team or two, capture the country, and depopulate it entirely. We could move every last one of those Muslims about 22.5 million of them from Syria to Coldfoot, leaving them with the grizzlies and the polar bears. But lets not stop there. Lets take the 11 million or more illegal immigrants inside our own borders a term nowadays used to describe brown people from the Americas and move them up there, too. That way wed never again have to worry about any Syrians converting us to Islam, or any illegals taking our jobs. One of the many upsides of this new policy would be a recovery of the abysmal economy Mr. Trump inherited from President Obama, with an unemployment rate of 4.8 percent. If we ship our illegals to Alaska, then the rest of us Anglo and African Americans along with the many legal immigrants moving into the work force wouldnt have to worry about cushy middle-class jobs any more, or the co-pay on health insurance policies or getting an education without fear of deportation. Instead, many of us, especially young people (thank God Im not young), could start working in the tomato fields, or picking citrus or cleaning toilets in Motel 6. And the unemployment rate could drop to, you know, near zero. (Thanks, Trump. Gracias, Bannon.) Come to think of it and I hope Mr. Bannon thinks of it and orders Mr. Trump to git r done we could probably squeeze all of Palestine into Alaska, too (about 4.2 million people), so theyd quit complaining about not having a homeland in the holy land. If Palestinians dont consider Alaska holy land, maybe the Israelis would let each Palestinian carry a quart or two of dirt from the West Bank to Sagwon, which is even north of Coldfoot, somehow. They could call that holy land. Hell, why not add the populations of several other Muslim countries and be done with it? Then the Yukon would become the Musli-kon. But what if the Musli-kon gets too crowded what if they start a (cold, very cold) war with each other? Plan B: move them west a hop-skippityjump into Siberia, with 5.2 million square miles of room to spread out. You could fit about nine Alaskas into the place, which means they could avoid overcrowding. Mr. Putin will be too busy moving the Ukrainians he doesnt like into the other end of Siberia to notice. And he wouldnt care anyway, not with his pal Mr. Trump at our helm. I do offer one caveat: We should ensure that Americans make big money off these refugees and immigrants before we send them north. After all, we always have in the past. Immigrants, for example, won all six Nobel prizes awarded to Americans in 2016, and that brain trust is gold. Would we send their incoming colleagues to the Refugee Relief State? In the Sunshine State alone, almost 40 percent of STEM graduates at the most research-oriented universities and colleges in recent years were born outside the United States, according to, a statistical analysis firm. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. About two-thirds of the people who earned Ph.D.s in engineering were temporary or permanent residents and more than 46 percent of engineering Ph.D.s here were foreign born. Outside of STEM, meanwhile, about 30 percent of Floridas business owners are immigrants, some of them M&Ms (Muslims & Mexicans). What are they going to do for us in Coldfoot? Get cold feet, I imagine. Just like the liberals when they hear the plan. Maybe they should live in Coldfoot, too.

It took place on Jan. 21, on the National Mall, the day after President Trumps inauguration. A Facebook post by Hawaii resident Rebecca Shook started it all. The day after the November election she suggested a Womens March on Washington to send a bold message to Trump on his first day as president. The message? Womens rights are human rights. Human rights are womens rights. The idea took off. Social media snowballed the online conversation. It became an actionable plan for a massive, nonviolent protest in the cradle of the nations capital. Locals volunteered to help orchestrate sister marches in more than 500 cities nationwide. The team planning the Washington protest originally forecast a crowd of 200,000. But the numbers leaped beyond their expectations, participation driven in no small part by broad distaste for the man to be inaugurated on the day before the march. Timing was, therefore, everything. The scale of the mobilization was breathtaking. Over a thousand buses were chartered from all 50 states. When the buses were fully booked, every other form of transportation was pressed into service. No available plane, train or automobile was left idle that could accommodate rally-bound passengers. In Florida, the statewide and local chapters of the National Womens March coordinated and helped manage the logistics within the state. They and other partnering groups helped muster more than 25,000 Floridians to attend the national march. Thousands of others gathered in dozens of local rallies. When the day of the march arrived, roads into Washington were jammed. The city metro was packed, the airports hummed with activity. The streets of the nations capital teemed with thousands of people. Each transport arrival disgorged a human wave of happy and excited warriors. They spread over and into the city, completely filling the National Mall, then overflowed into the grid of surrounding streets. The entire parade route was packed, leaving no place for participants to march. Remarkably, it was a calm sea unconstrained by the frozen state of gridlock. The hopeful mood of the day gently buoyed the ebb and flow of the crowd, but slowly. The days dis sent was uncompromised and uninhibited. Worded signs floated like sails above hundreds of thousands of pink-clad heads fun, poignant, serious and raunchy. Full-throated choruses chanted repeatedly, This is what democracy looks like! And of course, there were those hundreds of thousands of homemade, pink knit hats worn by the participants. Some observers frowned, saying afterward women embarrassed themselves, the hats symbolism an unladylike provocation, and unworthy of the weaker sex. But poo on that sanctimonious dribble. It was Trump who introduced pussy into the national vocabulary as a term of obscenity for the genitalia of women and girls. Shame on him. Those who wore those pink hats and hundreds of thousands of women, children, and men did wore them in defiance of Trumps degradation of the female gender. Those charming chapeaus were a pink crown of self-liberation from Trumps misogyny and the misogyny his attitude and behaviors breed in others. They did their job. Not even Trump missed the point of those hats. So, the Womens March on Washington was a grand day for the women of this country. The local rallies were, too, generating an estimated 3.3 million marchers. The total turnout makes the Womens Marches the largest single day of demonstrations in American history. But that isnt all. There were 673 similar events around the globe, on all seven continents. In Antarctica, even the penguins got into the act. The marches gave life and vigor to a patriots cause in search of democracys following, a compelling and important opportunity to reaffirm the belief of millions of Americans in the strength of our diversity as a nation. This was America at peace with itself, determined, courageous and unbowed by those whose hate and violence would tear us apart. This was America on duty, accounted for, present and fully cognizant of the threat of disunion epitomized by Trump. So where will all that energy go from here? Those who scoffed at the crowds think nowhere, citing the absence of one over-arching reason, principle or cause to which everyone agreed. But I think they are wrong. Diversity is, in fact, the foundation on which common cause will be built. Trumps outrageous attacks on democratic values adversely affect millions of Americans. As president, he imperils the Constitution and the civil rights and protections once assumed by millions to be inviolable. In short, he is in everybodys business and the multiplication of downsides are frightening and growing. The rule of law, legislative and legal precedent, the right to due process, free speech, a free and vibrant press, and the historic tradition of political dissent within this country wont be easily undone or erased. The Womens March on Washington is just the beginning of the resistance to come. Revenge of the nation-stateThe start of the Trump administration has been a vindication of the American nation-state. Anyone who thought it was a borderless world, a category that includes some significant portion of the countrys corporate and intellectual elite, has been disabused of the notion within about the first five days of the Trump years. The theme running throughout President Donald Trumps inaugural address was the legitimacy of the nation-state as a community, a source of unity and the best means of advancing the interests of its citizens. The address was widely panned, but early polling indicates the public didnt share the revulsion of the commentariat. The speechs broadly nationalistic sentiments were bound to strike people as common sense. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Who else would it serve? From this moment on, its going to be America first. Why would anything else come first? Trumps speech was less poetic, but in one sense more grounded than George W. Bushs call for universal liberty in 2005 or Barack Obamas vision of international cooperation leading to a new era of peace in 2009. Trump spoke of the right of all nations to put their own interests first. If Bush was a vindicator of universal freedom, and Obama, in his more soaring moments, a citizen of the world, Trump is a dogged citizen of the United States, concerned overwhelmingly with vindicating its interests. His executive order authorizing the building of the wall is an emphatic affirmation of one of the constituent parts of a nation, namely borders. In general, immigration is an important focus for Trumps nationalism because it involves the question of whether the American people have the sovereign authority to decide who gets to live here or not; of whether the interests of American or foreign workers should be paramount; of whether we assimilate the immigrants we already have into a common culture before welcoming even more. A proper American nationalism should express not just an affinity for this countrys people, as Trump did in his inaugural address, but for its creed, its institutions and its history. These are absent from Trumps rhetoric and presumably his worldview, impoverishing both. Trumps nationalism has the potential to appeal across racial and ethnic lines, so long as he demonstrates that it isnt just cover for his loyalty to his preferred subnational group. Finally, Trumps trade agenda also is an expression of his nationalism. Trade deals should have to pass the nationalinterest test. But protectionism is, historically, a special-interest bonanza that delivers benefits to specific industries only at a disproportionate cost to the rest of the economy. All that said, the nation-state is back, despite all the forecasts of its demise. It is no more in eclipse than religion, which we also were told would fade away as humanity embraced a more secular, cosmopolitan future. The lesson is that its a mistake to predict the inevitable decline of things that give meaning to peoples lives and involve fundamental human attachments. The nation is one of them, something that Trump, if he gets nothing else, instinctively understands.

Her most recent significant contribution is the creation and execution of the Naples Historic District Preservation Initiative, which was crafted based on a line of reasoning and insights that affirm the reality of the economic climate in the Naples market. It is a work in process and needs the vocal support of the community in order to move forward. Elaine has more than 25 years of strategic marketing management and economic development experience in the U.S. private sector and on U.S.A.I.D.-funded nongovernmental and nonprofit projects in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. She earned an undergraduate degree in marketing from the University of Cincinnati and a masters in nonprofit management from Hodges University.

She also contributed to the publication of a U.S. college-based book, The Manatee vs. the Local Economy, to be used for case studies. Having owned a business for several years, she appreciates the demands of running a business, profit or nonprofit. Elaine currently serves on the curriculum advisory board for the Hodges University Johnson School of Business and on the engineering advisory board for Gulf Coast High School. A graduate of Leadership Collier in 2013, she chaired the United Arts Council Arts Forum (2012-13) and served on the Presidents Council at Hodges U. (2007-09).

Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at, where hundreds of past shows are archived for listeners convenience. Something your mother was right about: She always said, Widen your circle of friends, and indeed, she was right. Where did you grow up? Cincinnati, OhioWhen and why did you rst come to Naples? It was July 1999. Having lived overseas for eight years, the decision to move to Naples was based on a desire to be in a community that had economic promise, a beach and a reasonable airport (if you ever lived overseas, you know how important that last comment is). I recall well that Immokalee Road between U.S. 41 and Goodlette-Frank Road had a U-Pick strawberry eld. My rst impression was that I felt I could do something of value here, that my experiences in marketing and economic development would be tapped. First job: File clerk and tax-return photocopier for my father, who was a CPA in Cincinnati.What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Id likely be consulting in economic development overseas once again. Guilty pleasure: Dark chocolate with Glen dditch.One thing on your bucket list: Take my son to Albania, Ukraine, Hungary and Armenia to show him where I worked and lived for eight years.Next vacation destination: Northeast for college visits: Philadelphia, Boston, D.C.Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could cook without a recipe. How do others do it?Advice for young people: One meaning of life is making choices. Think about the consequences of your actions before you go full bore. Best thing about kids: They need parental leadership, and that keeps us on our toes.Trait you most admire in your best friend: She has immense personal and professional integrity. Favorite app: The New York Times news.Something thats been on your mind: Regardless of ones political position, I think many American citizens need to better understand their civic responsibilities.Must-see place to take rst-time visitors: Historic Palm Cottage, then a short jaunt to the Naples Pier.Last book you read: Genghis Khan by Frank McLynn.All-time favorite movie: The Hangover.Something youll never understand: Why some people watch reality TV.Something you wish could go back to the way it once was: Unlocked doors rather than deadbolts, handwritten notes rather than e-blasts, and my weight, of course! Pet peeve: Rude people and bad grammar.What are you most proud of? Easy! My son, Carter. Besides being a strong academic, at 15 he has incredible empathy for his age. I look forward to seeing how he will continue to grow into the man he is becoming. Something the Paradise Coast really needs: A Scotch distillery.Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: Naples has been absolutely the best place to raise my son, and for that I am truly grateful.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYly modest a place where its easy for the folksinger to blend in with people who are just folks. It is quiet and unassuming, not unlike the man himself. He spends the winters in this hamlet thats about an hour and a half north of West Palm Beach. I have a lot of friends who have over the years got tired of freezing. A lot of Canadian buddies who have decided to move down here, either permanently or after retirement, he said. Most of them look at this area and then theyll look over at the west coast, and say, Yeah, Im going to the west coast. Too many rednecks (in Roseland). Its too right wing for them, or something like that. And Ill say, That may be the politics of it, but these people got the heart. If youre in trouble, theyll be there. You may disagree with them on everything, but you wont get that everywhere you go. He was relaxed during a recent visit to this house, dubbed The CrabHouse. Its large and comfortable, and its view is of Sebastian Inlet. One of his tour buses is parked at the side of the house. The day of his interview, Mr. Guthrie was on hiatus from touring. His trademark curls have turned from black to silver. He wore a Hawaiian shirt and was seated at an oak table checking an iPad. New Age-type music played on a sound system. A month before, he had wrapped his final show of the season, his annual concert at Carnegie Hall, held the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Each winter, he spends a couple of months in Florida, and his photographs of the waterfront fill his Facebook page and line a wall of his house. Its an opportunity to refresh. If I can, Ill be back in June, maybe September, depending on how the summer goes. I dont mind being down here in September I love it, he said. Even though its hot and sweltery, its not too bad being here on the water and theres no lines at the restaurants, which makes it nice. He and his late wife, Jackie, spent 25 years making The CrabHouse a home. The house originally was built as a Coast Guard Station before becoming a seafood cannery. The Guthries bought it in the s and completely rebuilt the structure. Theres a lot of retired people here, a lot of people on fixed incomes, Mr. Guthrie said. The sprawl continues in South Florida, even as the upper Treasure Coast looks much as it did decades ago. Its not even like West Palm. I was just down there to visit a friend. My father-in-law lived down there for decades and decades, he said. It keeps getting bigger. It looks like Dallas or something. People are a little nervous about that up here. At some point, the money talks. But the bottom line is, people dont have money in the bank, they got it in the ground somewhere and when someone comes along and says Ill give you more than you think its worth, theyre gonna do that. That doesnt seem imminent, at least not in Roseland. This is still a drinking village with a fishing problem, he said. Some places are so cosmopolitan, where people are distanced from one another. You might be in the next condo and you dont even know who they are. Here, everybody still knows who their neighbor is, and so I like being here. Roseland is one place in which he can be himself. I havent had any problems being here, and Im me. Im not just your average person that way. Im well known in some circles. I mean, ask a teenage kid who I am and they wont have any idea. But for people over 50 or 60 or something like that, theyll at least know my name is in the crossword puzzle and therefore I must be somebody. Someone indeed.The natural orderHis father was the songwriter Woody Guthrie, who told the tales of Dustbowl America in the 1930s and s, with songs like This Land is Your Land. Decades ago, laborers rallied to songs like Union Maid, and today, songs like Deportee and Pastures of Plenty have new meaning as the plight of migrants once again comes to the fore. Arlo Guthrie was 20 when he recorded Alices Restaurant. Two years later, he played Woodstock. He will turn 70 in July. October will mark the 50th anniversary of Woody Guthries death. The music of his dad, along with Pete Seeger and The Weavers, inspired the next generation of performers, like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Mr. Guthrie himself. Was it really half a century ago? So here we are 50 years later and I cant even remember what we were doing then, Mr. Guthrie said. I remember being at a huge antiwar demonstration in Washington in November of 9. I dont remember the feeling of being there, but I remember that I was there. And I was at a lot of the events that were shaping the culture at that time. Now they seem long ago and far away. Then, like now, the United States was struggling through polarizing times. The nation was in the throes of the Civil Rights movement. President Kennedy, his brother Robert and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated. People were taking to the streets to protest the Vietnam War. Isnt this a time to come together? I think there is always supposed to be a divide, so I dont look at division as a negative. The steering of the ship goes left and right. It doesnt just go straight. The natural ebb and flow of events is like a river. It doesnt just go left or right. It constantly returns to the center and keeps going. That is the natural way of things, he said. Nature is not always exact. I am and have always been very leery of people who want to get from one place to the other in a straight line, whether theyre left, right or up and down. That seems to be not only to be not natural but unlikely, he said. Every time somebody tries to do it, whether its guys on the left or guys on the right, it is a disaster. Perhaps we need to allow events to unfold. But when you let it go, and you let it follow its natural course, then we all pay attention to whats actually happening. Not whether its going this way or that way, but its going downhill. It has an end. A river goes into the sea. That to me is what the hopes and dreams of people both right and left have always included as part of their hope and dreams. These are contentious times, and Donald Trump was elected in anything but a landslide. People have decided they would rather risk a loose cannon than one they thought was pointed at them. I get that. A loose cannon might miss you. One thats pointed at you might not, and thats ARLOFrom page 1 SHUTTERSTOCK IMAGEArlo Guthrie at the 84th Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 25, 2010, in New York City.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 NEWS A9pure perception, he said. That is not an opinion as to what one party would do or another. I think that is the perception people had and the choice they thought they had and they made their decision based on that perception. How true is it? I have no idea. Its not my business to understand everything. Im not that good and its above my pay grade. And this is where Mr. Guthries role as folksinger comes in. I can and will remain somebody who points out with humor, if I can, the absurdities of people in authority. Thats what I do best, he said. My dad defined a folksinger as somebody who would comfort the distressed and distress the comfortable. He has a legacy of doing just that, though his 1967 recording of Alices Restaurant and the film that followed two years later were surprise hits based on a citation Mr. Guthrie received for littering. He connects with people and he has a great sense of humor, said Michael Stock, who for 34 years has hosted Miami public radio station WLRNs Folk and Acoustic Music program. His first album was a phenomenon. Nobody expected Woody Guthries son to come up with something like that. About 20 years ago, Mr. Guthrie organized an effort to buy the Trinity Church in Great Barrington, Mass. It was the place where he wrote and filmed Alices Restaurant, which became his first big hit. Its near his Massachusetts home. Now called The Guthrie Center, it is a home to performances and educational services. Each year, Mr. Guthrie supervises a Thanksgiving feast at the center. About 20 years ago, it came up for sale again and I thought this has become an icon of an idea of a time in which people got out in the streets and voiced their opinions, he said They didnt have to be right all the time but they werent just sitting there, and I thought, Good for them. They started small. Hundreds of people contributed $5, $10, $20 to put down a down payment on the thing, he said. We have kept alive some of the ideals that we had when I was a kid. Ideals of just helping each other, food for people who needed it, clothes for people who dont have them, help with education and legal fees. Things that people need but cant always afford. Hell perform a benefit show in June for the center.Keeping the music playingHe loves his time in Florida, but he also adores his music. I get itchy, just because I love playing music, I love being with my crew. My son is with me on this tour. I love doing the shows. I realize its not as good as maybe it was five years ago, he said, acknowledging the passing of time. Your voice gets a little older, your fingers get a little less nimble, but that doesnt mean you dont know what youre doing. And Id rather know what I was doing than be good at it, if that makes any sense. Simply having the willpower to perform helps. I remember doing a show with my old buddy Pete Seeger, who was 93 or 94. He couldnt hardly talk, couldnt sing, couldnt play. Didnt matter. He had the spirit and that came right through. Somehow, that audience just stood up when he walked out onstage. Some years before that, Mr. Seeger was worried. I remember having a conversation with him when he was in his early 80s. He called me up one time and said, Arlo, I dont know if we can do those big shows. I cant play like I used to play, I cant sing like I used to sing. And I said back to a beat, Look at our audience. They cant hear like they used to hear. It may not be a problem. And he said, Maybe youre right. And sure enough the experience counted for more than his technical ability. Mr. Seeger stayed active until his death in 2014. He died with his boots on, Mr. Guthrie said. People still sing Mr. Seegers anthems, including Where Have All the Flowers Gone? and Turn, Turn, Turn. But what about that other writer of anthems, Bob Dylan, who recently won a Nobel Prize for literature? I thought it was great, and what was even greater was that they couldnt find him. That cracked me up, Mr. Guthrie said. Its vintage Nobel prize. I mean, all of his fans knew where to go to see him, but the smartest guys in the world couldnt figure out where he was playing that night? I dont understand it. It put a humorous face on this very prestigious group of people and I thought that was nice.CollaborationIn the golden age of recording and at the height of their fame, artists like Mr. Guthrie spent weeks in a studio crafting an album. Nobody has months to make a record anymore. The world has changed. I would go out to Hollywood and sit there with some of the greatest session players ever. We would have so much fun and we would experiment, he said. All of that trial and error took time. Nobody has that time. He remembered one funny incident with Leonard Cohen. He was working out of the same studio we were 40 years ago and he called me in and he walked in to see what we were doing, Mr. Guthrie remembered. He said, Hey, man. Youve got to hear my new record. I said, Lenny, I dont like your records. Theyre too depressing. He said, No, no, this ones not like that. This ones funny. I said, Youre pulling my leg. He said, No, no. Come on, listen to it. so I went over and Im listening to it and it was the same Leonard Cohen. It was beautiful stuff, but it was depressing. And I said, Lenny, its still depressing. He said, But yeah, its the least depressing thing Ive ever done. There was camaraderie among musicians. Take the time Phil Everly, of Everly Brothers fame, joined him for the song Power of Love. Mr. Everly listened to part of the song and was ready to record. He walks to the microphone and hes singing along, and hes not just singing along, hes singing along breath for breath, nuance for nuance, like hed been doing it for decades. Even the ending, which he hadnt heard. I said, By the way, how the hell do you do that? Mr. Everly explained that his dad led the family in singing hymns while on road trips. Anyone who messed up was beaten with a belt. He said, God help the kid who stepped on somebody elses note. You sure did learn to sing right, Mr. Guthrie said. That kind of coming and going of people you admired and people who admired you, that doesnt happen as much, he said. Mostly now, people sit at the computer. They may play all of the instruments and play all of the parts. That works for some musicians, but not Mr. Guthrie. Those kinds of moments dont happen when youre sitting in your house with the computer on, he said.A family affairHe is especially excited to be performing with Taj Mahal in March. Last time I saw him was 40, 50 years ago, he said. I think were going to have a good time. My gut instinct tells me hes one of those guys, too. He can sit down with a song that hes never heard and contribute to it in a way that is brilliant and unique to him, so that will be fun for both of us.

The late Mr. Goodman approached Mr. Guthrie with the song. There are a lot of people who send in material. Most of it just god-awful, he said. But this was storytelling at its finest, and it became one of Mr. Guthries signature songs. He had to train his audience to listen to new songs. That helps sustain his career, WLRNs Mr. Stock said. People still send him material, and thats where having family in the business helps. It gets filtered through my kids Annie, my daughter, mostly, has to listen to this stuff, he said. It doesnt mean that every once in awhile there isnt something brilliant and great, but somehow people think that if somebody famous does something, its going to rub off on them. It doesnt. Thats an illusion. Perhaps they just need an ear.They want somebody like me to hear the songs. They dont necessarily want me to do it, just to hear it, as if its some kind of validation, he said. Im not a judge. Im not good at that. I know what I like.Theres a lesson in that. Youve got to learn to like your own stuff and not let other people tell you what they think about it, Mr. Guthrie said. I mean, they can tell you, but you cant take it too seriously. Thatd be like a politician trying to listen to everybody all at once. You cant do it. Nowadays, his collaborators include his children and grandchildren. Thats three generations. If you include my dad, its four, he said. Son Abe is a frequent touring companion, and daughter Sarah Lee Guthrie and her husband, Johnny Irion, have joined in as well. The touring typically gets underway in Florida around the beginning of February. This year, he played dates in Fort Pierce, St. Petersburg and Fort Lauderdale before heading north, then west. And, yes, the grandkids really do join him on occasion. That involves jockeying school and soccer schedules. It was easier when it was just me and four kids. Now its four and seven more. Then theres me and you have a drummer and it all piles up, Mr. Guthrie said. His late wife, Jackie, always kept things in check and served as videographer for his shows. She did that right up until September 2012. We knew she was ill. We didnt know what. But she got so weak she couldnt carry a simple, small camera up the stairs, but she was there ordering other people. When to turn them on, when to charge them, he said. She died of cancer that October. A large portrait of Jackie Guthrie hangs in an area near the front of the home. Her presence still looms large over the house, which is comfortable and stylish without being ostentatious. It was tough at first. I had to cancel a bunch of stuff. Then I realized I had to make it up, so we rearranged everything and it came sooner than I wanted, he said. Being professionals helped them keep things together. Wed been a very close family unit for almost 45 years, so that was fairly difficult. It was actually easier for me to not sit there and dwell on everything and to get back and do a show, he said. After all, the show must go on. When youre onstage, you put aside all your personal stuff. You have to. Its like a mandatory multiple personality disorder. A normal person with multiple personalities is crazy and has to go to a doctor to fix it. But when youre a performer, you have to do that. Theres no way, he said. That applies to the next generations, too. I remember telling my little grandkids who were fighting backstage when they were 4, 5 or 6, he said. I said, You dont have the luxury of bringing to the front of the stage what you were doing at the back. The lesson that they learned is that they dont have to be subject to their own emotions. Thats one of his legacies. Im not going to be around forever, but I think its fairly well in hand that whatever tradition weve got going here will continue for a while and as long as its important to them and important to other people, theyll be able to do it. Otherwise, theyll do something else. ARLOFrom page 9COURTESY PHOTOWoody Guthrie, Arlos father, playing a guitar that has a sticker attached reading This Machine Kills Fascists.

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYBefore they left Immokalee, the students chosen to go to the presidential inauguration couldnt stop talking about it. With the trip to Washington, D.C., the 24 students chosen on the basis of essays they wrote about why they wanted to go knew they were about to be a part of American history. They were so excited, said Noemi Perez, program services director for The Immokalee Foundation. They didnt realize they would witness not one, but two historic events in the nations capital. On Friday, Jan. 20, they watched Donald Trump become the 45th president. It was amazing, said Ernesto Blanchard, a 17-year-old senior at Immokalee High School. To see the most powerful man in the world hand down that power to another. On Saturday, Jan. 21, they saw a crowd estimated at more than 1 million people take part in the first-ever Womens March on Washington. We got to see both parts, those who supported him and those against him, said Lessett Perez, one of Mr. Blanchards IHS classmates who is also enrolled in an early admission program at Florida SouthWestern State College. We went to the inauguration and also to the Womens March. It was good to see both sides. Jose Munguia, 17, joined in the march. I picked up a sign I found in the street and carried it. I felt like what they were doing to stand up for minorities and immigrants was amazing, he said. Mr. Munguia is of Mexican heritage. He plans to attend either Florida Gulf Coast University or Tallahassee Community College in the fall to study nursing. Were trying to get an education, to go to college. Were not criminals, he said. Now I can look back and tell people I was a part of that. Graciela Cervantes agreed. It was amazing to see so many people stand up for what they believed and how they all came together, she said. An 18-year-old IHS senior, Ms. Cervantes will begin working toward a degree in elementary education at the University of South Florida this summer. It was beautiful. Besides seeing democracy in action, the students were impressed in other ways. I liked the weather, too, Ms. Perez said. It was pretty cold, but we got used to it. Now I feel like Florida will be too hot, she laughed. For Leslie Gallegos, another Immokalee High School senior who also attends classes at Florida SouthWestern State College, the trip was particularly poignant, thanks to a class in Americaan government she takes at FGCU. This course has let me see what a great nation it is compared to the rest of the world, she wrote in the essay that helped earn her the trip to Washington, D.C. I know that this nation only runs because of the participation of the people. I am one of those people who in the future will help this country. The American dream is my dream. Many of the students on the trip rarely had been outside of Immokalee. I could count on one hand the times Ive left Florida, Ms. Gallegos, 17, said. In Washington, we rode on the Metro, and I was looking around at the traffic, which was mostly small cars. And no trucks, like (what we have) in Immokalee. In addition to Mr. Blanchard, Ms. Perez, Mr. Munguia, Ms. Cervantes and Ms. Gallegos, these Immokalee Foundation students also made the trip: Amos Astreide, Ulna Beaubrum, Victoria Campbell, Jessica Chaparro, Jesus Chavez, Jacinto Diego, Jennifer Flores, Joshua Hernandez, Erick Hidalgo, Alicia Huapilla, Heather Martinez, Vanessa Ortiz, Mandi Perez, Salvador Preciado, Hector Ramirez, Yulissa Ramirez, Bryan Reyes, Perla Soto and Osbaldo Vasquez. Organized by The Brunson Foundation and State Rep. Byron Donalds, the trip was historic in yet another way: It was the first time in TIFs 25-year history that its students traveled to a presidential inauguration. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

A lifelong educator, Ms. Nichols has taught in private and public schools for 20 years. Her interest in working with the Hispanic community began when she was a child visiting migrant camps in Collier and Lee counties with her father. Seeing the problems in the migrant neighborhoods and recognizing the tremendous need to help the children from non-English speaking homes with their school work, the Nichols family decided to find a place to provide free afterschool tutoring. In January 2003, the family opened the first Super Kids Club in Rosemary Park in Bonita Springs.

Since the project began in 2012, the FWC has received more than 3,700 reports, of which biologists were able to verify 922 based on photos of the animal or its footprints. Most of the reports have come from Southwest Florida, but some panthers have been documented on the east coast near Vero Beach and in central Florida near Orlando. We are pleased that so many people are taking the time to share their panther sightings with us. These citizen scientists are providing more eyes in the woods, thereby helping FWC monitor the whereabouts of Floridas state animal, said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader. Biologists are especially interested in pictures of panthers north of the Caloosahatchee River, which runs from Lake Okeechobee to Fort Myers. There are few sightings or photos of panthers in this part of the state. Currently, the only known breeding population of Florida panthers is south of the river in Southwest Florida. The panther sightings webpage provides information about the animals, including how to identify them, what to do or not do when you see one and a Google map making it easy to pinpoint the sighting location.

BEHIND THE WHEELDodge Durango GT is more value than sportFor 2017, Dodge has introduced a new GT trim on the Durango SUV. Fair warning to readers: while the pictures show a racecar red appearance, this weeks car column is about value. We promise to return to sexy sheet metal and chrome glamour next week. So how does a vehicle with a sporty appearance and GT in its name promote value? The answer lies within another part of Dodges high-performance monikers. Buying a vehicle with the R/T badge means a more aggressive package that includes body-colored grille, larger wheels, and Chryslers famous Hemi V8 under the hood. It creates a divider between the Dodges that look powerful and the ones that ARE powerful. Except the Durango GT is blurring that line. This package gets similar monochromatic body upgrades, same aggressive wheels, but keeps the stana m o B m i

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS BEHIND THE WHEELdard V6 motor. Its $38,500 base price is also $4,600 less than an R/T. Even without the GT vs. R/T debate, the Durango is an interesting SUV. It sits in-between midsize crossovers and large SUVs in the marketplace. For example, it has the ability to seat seven people, and its length is the midpoint between the Ford Explorer and the Ford Expedition. It also has a unibody construction like a crossover, but it has been reinforced to have the towing capacity of an SUV. The design is not revolutionary. After all, a worthy crossover/SUV is going to stress function over form and stick to an overall design that maximizes its space with a tall, square back design. But Dodge does its best to show that all its cars have some performance in its bloodlines. So the Durango has bulges in the hood, flared fenders, as well as headlights and taillights that seem to be inspired from the Charger sedan. The Durango is the larger sibling to the Grand Cherokee, and the easiest place to see this is from the interior. Aside from the logo on the horn and some silver trim, the Dodge is a dead ringer for the Jeep. They even start around the same price $31K before rebates. But what makes the Durango distinctive is five more inches in wheelbase and nearly a foot more in overall length. This allows the Dodge to offer an optional third row of seating thats not in the Jeep. Really, the Durango is out to be Chryslers answer to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition. That means the third row feels substantial, offers decent legroom, and still has rear cargo room with all seats in place all traits that are rarely found in midsize crossover/SUVs but are a staple of the full-size class. In fact, those who are shopping for a three-row vehicle will need to start with the Durango GT. Its the lowestpriced trim level that has the sevenseat upgrade. That is far from the least expensive way to get family and friends into one vehicle. But with the aggressive appearance package and standard amenities (leather-trimmed seats, three-zone automatic climate control, power drivers seat, touchscreen radio w/backup camera, etc.,) there is a genuine sense of value. The GT isnt for everyone. It might look a lot like the sporty R/T, but its missing the 360 horsepower Hemi V8 under the hood. In its place is the 3.6-liter V6, and thats the only motor available. If we were trying to up-sell the Durango, wed mention there is a 22 percent horsepower difference between the two engines. Seems pretty significant, right? But in reality, no one would consider the 295 hp produced by the V6 to be a slouch. This Pentastar engine has been at the heart of FCAs car program for the last few years, and it is flexible enough to be used in everything from the Chrysler 300 sedan to the Ram 1500 pickup. That diversity makes it feel refined for road use, and at the same time, it can take plenty of equipment along for the ride. For those who really have the large toys, the V8 can be justified because its rated to tow 1,200 lbs. more (7,400 lbs. total.) The GT name is usually reserved for the performance models. But despite its sporty looks, the latest version of the Durango really just wants to give you value in its V6.

Nina Nordgren, M.D. Board Eligible Ophthalmologist SWFLEYE.COM M.D. Board Ophthalmologist Work of a researcherField work is always challenging, explained Courtney Marneweck of South Africas University of KwaZuluNatal in a recent journal article, but studying the sociology of a white rhinos dung meant developing a pattern-recognition algorithm to figure out smell profiles of 150 animals feces after tracking them individually to observe them in the act. Wrote Marneweck, I think my record for waiting for a rhino to poo was 7 hours. Conclusion: Rhinos use feces to send distinct social signals on genetically compatible herds, mating access and predator dangers. (Or, in the Los Angeles Times click bait version of the story, rhino dung has a lot in common with a Facebook post.)The way the world works Retiring the Herd: Settlement of a class-action lawsuit against a group of dairy co-ops was announced in January with milk producers agreeing to pay $52 million on charges they had conspired to fix the dairy supply for years to get topdollar prices. Among the producers primary tactics, allegedly, was using what the industry calls herd retirement, which is retirement only in the sense that 500,000 healthy young cows were slaughtered just to drive up prices by eliminating otherwise-available milk. The $52 million will be for consumers in 15 states and Washington, D.C. Wrist-Slapping: (1) Rutgers University Athletic Director Pat Hobbs, responding to the NCAAs announcement of violations against the schools sports programs (including failure to penalize 16 football players who tested positive for drugs), told the Asbury Park Press in January that he would immediately dismiss from teams any player testing positive for hard drugs upon the fourth violation (if for marijuana only, upon the fifth). (2) In January, the Russian parliament voted 380 to 3 to amend its assault law to allow a spouse one punishment-by-ticketing (i.e., not criminal) for domestic violence against his partner provided the bodily harm was not substantial and that it happens no more than once a year.Wait, what? Surgery on a 16-year-old Japanese girl, reported in January by New Scientist, revealed that her ovary contained a miniature skull and brain. Doctors say that finding rogue brain cells in ovaries is not that uncommon, but that an already-organized brain, capable of transmitting electric impulses, is almost unheard-of. The neonatal intensive care unit of Texas Health Fort Worth disclosed in January that the secret to keeping the most fragile prematurely born babies alive is to quickly stick them into Ziploc freezer bags to create, according to a clinician, a hot house effect. (It turns out that merely raising the temperature in the delivery room had only marginal effect.)Leading economic indicatorDoughnut lovers have legitimately mused for years how U.S. law could condemn, say, marijuana, yet permit Krispy Kreme to openly sell its seemingly addictive sugary delights on Americas streets. Sonia Garcia, 51, realized a while back that residents of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, so much needed Krispy Kreme fixes that she earns a handsome living running a black market from El Paso, Texas, bringing in 40 boxes at a time and re-selling from the trunk of her car at a 60 percent markup, pointing out to a Los Angeles Times reporter in January that her trafficking has already put one son through engineering school. (Mexico City now has Krispy Kremes, but apparently the companys distribution system cannot yet vanquish Sonia Garcias car.)

We have had programs for nursing in cooperation with Florida SouthWestern Stage College, Florida Gulf Coast University, Lorenzo Walker Technical College and Ave Maria University, among others. In 2016 we hired 68 new nursing grads, all of who participated in an internship/ mentoring program with experienced nurses who volunteered to teach. And our new internal medicine residency program affiliated with the Mayo School of Medicine and Science starts this summer. New grads of our educational nurse residency program traditionally gain additional experience on a medical/surgical unit. Seven recent nursing school grads elected to advance into specialty positions after they completed the medical/surgical internship in pediatrics, intensive care, emergency room, neonatal ICU and labor/delivery. We now enjoy a 90 percent nurse retention rate. Here are three of our success storiers: Kasey Koch served as a medic in the reserves for eight years. We met again when she was being trained on pacemakers in a post-op open heart bypass patient. I thought No one is more efficient than a working mom as she shared her journey: She worked nights for two years as a phlebotomist at our North Naples campus while going to nursing school and raising twins during the days. Now as an R.N., she told me is contemplating going for a bachelors in nursing after she gets a chance to catch up on life. Taylor Prohaska started with NCH as a Bears Den child care aide (Bears Den is our pre-school primarily for collegiate children). Now enrolled at Rasmussen College for her R.N., she is benefiting from NCHs tuition assistance plan and hopes to obtain a bachelors in nursing from University of South Florida. Ms. Prohaska was a new grad for eight SEE WEISS, A25 Heart failure projected to increase dramatically AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATIONThe number of people diagnosed with heart failure is increasing and projected to rise by 46 percent by 2030, resulting in more than 8 million people with heart failure, according to the American Heart Associations 2017 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics Update published Feb. 1. There are several reasons for the rise in heart failure, which means the heart is too weak to pump blood throughout the body, experts said. In part, the increase can be attributed to medical advances, because more people are surviving heart attacks and therefore face higher heart failure risk afterward, said Paul Muntner, Ph.D., a member of the statistical updates writing panel and a professor and vice chair in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. But the aging of America and other health problems are also major contributors. The epidemics of diabetes and obesity both contribute to the rising number of patients who acquire heart failure our growing population of the elderly are particularly susceptible, said Mariell Jessup, M.D., a heart failure expert and former president of the American Heart Association. The number of adults living with heart failure increased from about 5.7 million (2009-2012) to about 6.5 million (2011-2014). Data are based on National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which is taken in stages over multiple years. Now published in the AHA journal Circulation, the statistical update has been a frequently cited reference every year since 1958. Cardiovascular diseases including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and stroke collectively remain the leading cause of death in the world and the United States. Heart disease and stroke are still the leading two killers in the world; in the U.S., heart disease ranks first and stroke fifth. Cardiovascular diseases were the most common cause of death in the world, claiming about 17.3 million lives. In the U.S., more than 1 in 3 adults (92.1 million adults) have cardiovascular diseases, accounting for 807,775 deaths. About 790,000 people in the U.S. have heart attacks each year. Of those, about 114,000 will die. In the U.S., about 795,000 adults experienced a new or recurrent stroke, accounting for nearly 133,000 deaths. There were more than 350,000 outof-hospital cardiac arrests in the U.S., nearly 90 percent of them fatal. Disparities in how these diseases affect different people continued, according to the update. We know that advances in cardiovascular health are not distributed evenly across the population, said Emelia J. Benjamin, M.D., Sc.M., chair of the AHA Statistics Committee and professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine. In particular, individuals who live in rural communities, have less education, have lower incomes, and are ethnic or racial minorities have an undue burden of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors, she said. The update also included the latest figures on what the AHA calls Lifes Simple 7, key measures and behaviors that can help people stay healthy and lower their risk for heart disease, stroke and other major problems. Lifes Simple 7 includes non-smoking, staying physically active, eating a healthy diet, maintaining a normal body weight, and controlling of cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Here are statistics related to Lifes Simple 7, with the most recent year for which data are available: Nearly 17 percent of men, 14 percent of women and nearly 5 percent of children ages 12-17 smoked cigarettes in 2015. About 22 percent of adults in 2015 met federal physical activity guidelines. Between 1999 and 2012, although AHA healthy diet scores tended to improve in all races and ethnicities, income and education levels, many disparities present in earlier years widened over time, with generally smaller improvements seen in minority groups and those with lower income or education. In the U.S., the prevalence of obesity among adults, estimated using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, increased from 1999 to 2000 through 2013 to 2014, from 30.5 percent to 37.7 percent. In the U.S., the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children and adolescents age 2-19 years, estimated using the national data, is 33.4 percent (16.2 percent were overweight and 17.2 percent were obese). Nearly 94.6 million, or 40 percent, of American adults had total cholesterol of 200 milligrams per deciliter or higher. Nearly 86 million, or 34 percent, of American adults had high blood pressure. An estimated 23.4 million, or 9.1 percent, of American adults have diagnosed diabetes. About 7.6 million, or 3.1 percent, of American adults have undiagnosed diabetes; and about 81.6 million, or 33.9 percent, of American adults have prediabetes.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 A25 What do Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Lauren Bacall all have in common? They all had legendary cheekbones that were admired by men and women alike. Today, fortunately, if genetics hasnt given you beautifully chiseled chin (or if age has slowly eroded them away), we can create them for you as natural-looking as if you were born with them. How can they possibly do this? Through hundreds and hundreds of hours of intensive training and experience Dr. Flaharty and his team have developed a very natural aesthetic feel. When theyre using one of our for example), you are provided with instant, natural-looking cheekbones in as little as 20 minutes, with absolutely no downtime. And the best thing is how long the results last up to a year! And what about chin implants? celebrities to openly admit she had a chin implant (and back then they used tion to a persons face!) Fortunately, chin implants have come a very long way! Lets say youre at a consult with Dr. Flaharty on having either chin or cheek implants. Lets hear from him, in his own words, about his special approach and what your options would likely be: Lets start with the chin. For most people, their chins dont bother them when they look front-on into a mirror, balance with the rest of the face, that quickly becomes apparent when lookbut many of us want to give it just a little Men and women both commonly request chin and cheek enhancement here at Azul, either to help them achieve a more dramatic facial appearance, or just to restore a little lost volume to the cheek and chin areas. As you age, your facial tissues lose it gradually, or when you smile into the mirror, tilting your head at different angles, wondering if theres anything to be done. Maybe youre considering cheek enhancement, but you really dont want to deal with surgery and recovery. All youre looking for is something to give your face a little more lift, a little more balance. What other options are there? As a facial plastic surgery specialist, my approach to chin and cheek enhancement has changed a lot in recent years. In the past, many patients chose cheek implants to add volume to the mid-face. Nowadays, though, I rarely use cheek implants. If a patient then well still use a cheek implant, but more times than not we can solve that problem with either injectables or with fat augmentation, using the patients own living fat cells to add volume back to the cheek and provide that youthful fullness. Chin implants, on the other hand, have stayed very popular. If a patient volume loss or recession of the jawline, adding some volume back to the chin but with a chin implant you can get a permanent and more complete rejuvenation of the jawline. The beauty of this approach is that, when combined with a face and neck lift, youll get a better result in enhancing the jawline, balancing the face, and creating a longer, leaner neck. Our team at Azul is ready and waiting to answer all your questions about cheek and chin enhancement, with or to book your free consult. Once youve settled on the procedure(s) that can help you achieve the look you want, youll be on your way to a stronger, person you truly are!

MORGAN, III RESTORE AMBASSADORS:MR.JOSEPH G. TOMPKINS PET TALESGoat mania: What you should know before getting one BY JULIE MANCINIAndrews McMeel SyndicationGoats in sweaters. Yoga with goats. Goats doing agility. Goats on the internet. Goats are everywhere these days, including suburban backyards and living rooms. Whats to love about a goat? A better question might be: Whats not to love? Goats are bold, curious and mischievous. But maybe its their wide-eyed playfulness that has made them a pop culture and pet culture phenomenon. While standard-size goats such as Nubians or Alpines might be a little much in a home backyard they can weigh 100 to 200 pounds miniature breeds such as the pygmy or Nigerian dwarf bring the same entertaining goat energy in a smaller package. What can you do with a goat? Some have been known to hang out and watch TV with their people. Goats have learned to run agility courses theyre naturals and they can perform tricks such as high-five, spin and wave, and even pull small carts. Check your fencing before bringing a goat home. Goats are chewing champions, and they will find ways to exploit any weaknesses in their enclosures. They will chew indoors, too, so dont leave your goat inside without supervision. Whether youre keeping goats in the country or suburbia, visit breeders to see their stock and determine which size goat fits your family. Take note of the enclosures the breeders use, and ask for recommendations on building a secure goat pen. Otherwise, you may find them making a break for freedom and stopping traffic with their cuteness. Goats are natural browsers, so if youre keeping them in your backyard, be prepared for your landscaping to become their salad bar. Consult your county extension office about goat-safe plants, and consider landscaping with your goats in mind. Grass isnt all goats eat. They need 2 to 4 pounds of hay daily, depending on their size and breed. Hay is divided into two groups: grass hay and legume hay. Grass hay provides some protein and energy, but legume hays, such as alfalfa or clover, usually provide more nutrients, including protein, vitamins and important minerals such as calcium, than grass hays. Also provide plenty of fresh cold water in buckets, and change the water at least twice a day. A busy goat is a happy goat. If you can, provide your goats with some leafy tree limbs. This keeps them occupied as well as fed. Other ways you can keep your goat busy are to provide him with a ball he can chase around the yard or create some sort of climbing opportunities for him. Just make sure whatever you build isnt too close to an outside wall, or you may be chasing your goat down the street. Not too surprisingly, goats can develop digestive problems if they eat the wrong thing. Make sure your veterinarian knows a little something about caprine care, or is willing to learn. The best way to keep a goat entertained is to have two goats. Goats are herd animals, and if they dont have another goat around, it will fall to you to entertain your lone goat, which can become a full-time job. You will find yourself with a bleating shadow that follows you around the yard, then stands at the back door, bleating loudly, until you pay more attention to him. Routine care includes regular brushing and hoof trims, which give you an opportunity to give your pet some extra attention, as well as ensuring that his coat and hooves are in good shape. Before adopting a goat, do your homework. Check with your city government to determine whether goats are legal as in-town pets. Visit local breeders and ask their opinion of goats as backyard pets.

A high silk hat and a silver cane, a watch of gold with a diamond chain Hi-Diddle-Dee-Doo, you sleep til after two Its great to be a celebrity, an actors life for me! Walt Disneys PinocchioAbout once a year the acting bug bites me, again. When I was in my 20s and 30s, I used to take to the footlights quite a bit, but as time marched on, I found myself with less of a need for the grease paint and the roar of the crowd and when I examine the reason why, its because, quite frankly, its a lot of work. I mean, as easy as traipsing around on a stage and making people laugh may look, it actually takes a ton of focus, dedication and commitment which is why I have such respect and admiration for full-time stage actors. Especially as technology infiltrates audiences and cell phones add a whole new challenge to performing. Until March 4, Im having a fabulous time acting in the super funny comedy, The Savannah Sipping Society (think The Golden Girls meets Steele Magnolias meets Designing Women) at the Off-Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers. Its a pretty hefty schedule nine performances a week with matinees and evenings and happily, were playing to sold-out crowds. But, since I do so little theater, I didnt realize how encroaching cell phones had become. During Act I of a recent matinee (after a curtain speech where turning off cell phones is politely mentioned) three different cell phones rang. I realize its distracting to audience members, but for those of us onstage, its really jarring. Granted, were not performing open-heart surgery, but when youre in the middle of a monologue under a spotlight, a million thoughts run through your head. Wow, thats a really loud ring tone Whats my next line? ... Did it really ring again? ... Does my next line really matter if everyone is paying attention to that loud cell phone? Maybe I should talk louder Wait Whats my next line? But the worst is when the owner of the cell phone actually ANSWERS it. This has happened to me three different times at three separate theaters. Once I was a flabbergasted audience member; the other times I was on stage. So, youre performing a scene when you hear the phone ringing you and your fellow cast members press on, assuming the owner, a lady in the front row, will silence it quickly because surely shes terribly embarrassed and everyone around her is no longer watching the play, but instead, staring at her sternly. Instead of silencing the phone, she picks it up: Hello? ... Can I call you back? ... Yes, were at the play Uh-huh, its good Really? ... OkK What time? ... Let me find a pen And she continues the conversation in a hushed tone for the rest of the act until intermission. I understand though accidents happen. As an early mobile phone user of the late s, I had a giant mobile that was the size of a shoe. In fact, back then, cellular telephones were so novel that in curtain speeches before plays, you were reminded to turn off your pager so, yeah; this was back in prehistoric days. And of course my enormous phone rang in the quietest theater during the quietest moment of one of the most beautiful, quietest plays ever. I was mortified as I dug into my purse to silence it as quickly as I could I STILL cringe when I recall that experience almost 20 years ago. But heres the lesson its never happened again not during a play, not at a movie theater and certainly not at church. But cell phones arent just used as phones anymore. These days, people use them to text, check email, take a gander at Facebook, etc. So, when you look out into the dark from the stage (typically in the beginning of an act, as folks usually put their phones away after theyve finished typing their sentence) you see all these weird glows on audience members faces theyre hard not to notice. And although I would never do this, Broadway great Patti Lupone has notoriously stopped shows to admonish people using their cell phones. I get it, Patti. The good news is that most people are at a play because they want to leave technological distractions behind and immerse themselves in another world for a couple of hours. The calls and texts will still be there at intermission so wait. Trust me, thats when we actors are checking our phones too. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

SEE BENEFITS, B4 BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.comOnly 37 percent of workers at companies with 50 or fewer employees have access to a retirement savings plan through their job, a Pew Charitable Trust study found, and about half of those who work for companies with less than 100 workers have that benefit. Relatively few small businesses sponsor such plans, especially 401(k)s, in large part because of the administrative headaches and fees attached to them. Offering a 401(k) might involve four separate service providers including a financial advisor, payroll company, third-party administrator and a record keeper, said Jim Raley, CEO of Pension Planners Inc. in Naples.One of the complications in trying to set up a plan for any small business is who do you deal with? he said.Now an increasing number of financial companies, including some start-ups, are targeting that market gap.

of the administrative work of 401(k) plans, including reporting to the IRS and Department of Labor, compliance checks, deducting money from paychecks and monitoring employee investments, they say, while keeping fees low. While typically a small business owner might pay 1.5 percent to 2 percent per year in fees based on the total assets invested in retirement plans, their clients generally pay less than 1 percent, said Healy Jones, head of marketing. The kind of sweet spot for our technology is probably (businesses) with 20 to 500 employees or so, he said. They keep costs low in part by limiting investment options to a small number of low-cost Vanguard funds. The company began last year with $5 million in assets under its management and has grown to manage about $100 million in assets for 200 businesses in the United States. I know that speaks to the kind of need in the market, Mr. Healy said. There are a lot of business owners and Human Resources executives who are looking for a better way. That may be particularly true in Florida, which overall has fewer employees with access to employee-sponsored retirement plans (46 percent) than any other state, the Pew study says. That may be because of its high number of hospitality and construction workers, two industries, which have among the lowest access to retirement plans, while manufacturing and health care typically, have higher rates. In the U.S., there are more than 30 million full-time privatesector workers age 18 to 64 who do not have access to an employer-based retirement plan, Pew found. DAS Health, a health care information technology and management solution company headquartered in Tampa, with 60 employees, began offering plans through ForUsAll last year. Its very user and administrator friendly, said Jenna Wengler, DASs human resources manager. They make it very easy on someone like me who would normally administer this plan, because they do it all. Ive done 401(k) before at my previous company. It was for a small company, similar in size as this one and it was very difficult for me to understand, very tedious. They didnt really assist at all. It was hard to get ahold of people, where ForUsAll is very much customer focused. DAS gets updates each month about employee contributions, up to 6 percent of their paychecks, or changes to their accounts. Ms. Wengler said its easy for employees to elect a plan themselves or change benefit portions. DAS also has the flexibility to decide how much funds to match based on its profitability each year. More than 90 percent of DASs employees participate in a plan, Ms. Wengler said.I think (ForUsAll) realized that a small company such as ours we have employees who wear many hats. Im the only person in the human resources department. I handle everything from the payroll to the benefits to employee relations. So the person who is in charge of the benefits has a lot on their plate and minimal time, so theyve figured out a way to make it as easy as possible for that person.Other companies with 401(k) plans aimed at small businesses include CoPilot by PAi Trust Company, Capital Ones Spark plans and Vanguard Retirement Plan Access. Vanguards small business retirement plans were launched in 2011, aimed at startups to companies with up to $20 million in assets. It provides administrative support and record-keeping services but also allows companies to hire their own third-party administrator if they choose. What we were finding is a lot of small businesses were being underserved by a lot of the plans they had and they were also being overcharged in a lot of instances, said Crystal Hardie Langston, principal and head of Vanguard Retirement Plan Access. We really believed smaller plans should be able to offer high quality, low cost retirement plans just like every other size organization. Besides 401(k)s, experts also point to SIMPLE IRAs (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees Individual Retirement Account) as a good option for small business owners who want to offer retirement benefits with few administrative requirements or operational costs. With SIMPLE IRAs, there are lower limits to what employees can invest in their retirement and to the percentage that employers can match than with a 401(k). But they offer the same essential benefits of saving income that has not been taxed, and allowing owners to defer taxes on contributions. Many small businesses arent aware the option exists, said Randy Wright, CPA and tax partner with Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., in Fort Myers. Fewer than 25 percent of their small business clients in Lee, Collier, Hendry and Charlotte counties offer retirement plans. They think these retirement plans are very cost prohibitive when really theyre not, Mr. Wright said. A SIMPLE IRA has only a few basic requirements. It is for business with 100 or fewer employees, and employers cant have any other retirement plan in place. With just three employees, the plan made sense for Eric Bretan, co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda and a former senior derivatives marketer and investment banker. Even with his background, he found the regulatory requirements of 401(k) plans hard to understand. With a SIMPLE IRA, it was a matter of filling out one form for the IRS to get started, setting up a QuickBooks accounting program and matching 3 percent of his employees contributions. We wanted a plan that was easy to set up and easy to use and that was the primary reason, said Mr. Bretan, who also writes a business column about money and investing for Florida Weekly.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bankruptcy BasicsIt can be tempting to invest in companies that are in or near bankruptcy, as their prices will seem ultra-low, but youd do well to steer clear. Those prices are low for good reason. A company will generally file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection only when its having trouble paying its bills and has little choice. Chapter 11 permits it to keep operating while it reorganizes. Some such companies will get their acts together and become stronger than before, while those that still cant pay off their creditors will likely end up in Chapter 7 getting liquidated, with their assets sold off. While in Chapter 11, the company remains in possession of its assets, which are supervised by a court-appointed trustee. It must file a plan of reorganization with the bankruptcy court. If any creditors are to receive less than full value for their claims, they can vote on the matter. After the vote, the court can accept or reject the plan. Thus, the company has some flexibility, but if it deals too harshly with various creditors, its plan isnt likely to be approved. In most cases, the company will have to sell off assets to raise money to pay creditors. The proceeds usually wont be enough to pay all prioritized creditors in full, so creditors might accept a reduced amount of money and/or some stock in the new, reorganized company.Meanwhile, holders of common stock in the company are not anywhere near the front of the line. Theyre behind debt holders, merchant creditors, trustees, employees, the IRS and even preferred-stock shareholders, and their shares usually end up worthless. Even insiders stock stakes usually do.Plenty of companies in Chapter 11 do emerge from it and survive (such as General Motors, Western Union and Delta Airlines) but many dont (think Enron, Worldcom and Polaroid). And with those that do, its rare for shareholders to benefit. Some of those that survive just end up in trouble again. Its best to avoid companies in trouble. Rotten Apple?I bought shares of Apple at $127 on the recommendation of The Motley Fool. Now the shares are down near $97 apiece. This was one of my biggest mistakes. S.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its not necessarily a mistake. It is if you buy and hold for only a short time, expecting the stock to rise quickly, because stocks can be volatile. Its also a mistake to hang on to your shares if you no longer have any faith in the company. But if you buy into a company you believe in when its stock price appears low and you hold for the long term, through ups and downs, you stand a good chance of making a profit. You wrote to us about a year ago, and Apple shares have recently been around $120. Its the companys future that matters most, though, and while there is rarely widespread consensus about any companys future, theres a lot to like about Apple. For one thing, its still trading at an attractive price, with a dividend yield near 2 percent. Revenue has slumped recently, but there has been strong demand for its iPhone 7. App Store sales have also been strong, and with the companys massive cash hoard, it can pounce on opportunities and keep hiking its dividend. Of course, new products that generate a lot of excitement will also help. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Apple.) A Biotech Blue ChipWith a market value recently topping $110 billion, biotechnology titan Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) is a blue-chip company whose stock has been held back by bad news. Revenue growth has been sluggish. Sales in the first three quarters of 2016 for its second-biggest product, bone marrow stimulant Neulasta, dropped a little year over year. Its top-selling drug, Enbrel, is facing stiff competition in the autoimmune disease market. On the other hand, you wont find many stronger biotechs than Amgen, which generates operating cash flow of close to $9 billion annually. Its cash stockpile (including cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities) approached $38 billion at the end of September. Amgen is also one of only a handful of biotechs to pay a dividend. It hiked its payout by 15 percent for 2017, and its dividend recently yielded 3 percent. Then there are Amgens future prospects. Cholesterol drug Repatha could become one of the companys top moneymakers. Amgen plans to announce results from a cardiovascular outc omes study for the drug in early 2017. Payers have erected barriers to reimbursement so far, but this study could go a long way in making Repatha more readily available to patients. Amgen also has a rich pipeline. Its introduced several products in the past two years, and its relatively new cardiovascular pipeline, along with an established cancer-drug portfolio, offer numerous pathways to growth in practically any economic environment. I trace my roots back to 1886, when my founder started selling watches. A company I merged with in 2005 began as the first Kresge five-and-dime store in 1899. My famous catalog debuted in 1888, and I introduced the Discover Card in 1985. I launched the Craftsman brand in 1927 and am now selling it. I created Allstate Insurance in 1931 and spun it off in 1995. My business has been struggling, and I have been keeping it afloat in part by selling off some of my valuable real estate. One of my brands evokes Bruce Willis. Who am I? (Answer: Sears Holdings) Street-WiseQWhat does street name refer to? F.B., Kankakee, IllinoisAIn the old days, youd buy stock and receive a paper certificate. These days, most brokerages actually hold any stock you buy in street name (their own name) instead of putting the shares in your name and mailing you the certificates. This is routine, and the shares still belong to you. Many people prefer the new system, as it permits the shares to be sold more quickly, without your having to find and mail back the certificates.You can learn more about brokerages and find an inexpensive one at ***QWhats the difference between market value and intrinsic value? M.G., Santa Maria, CaliforniaAImagine Tattoo Advertising Co. (ticker: YOWCH). Its intrinsic value is what its really worth, based on factors such as its assets and debt, its anticipated growth rate and, ultimately, the amount of cash its expected to generate over its lifetime. Unfortunately, thats not easy to determine, and different smart analysts will arrive at different numbers. Intrinsic value can change, too, if the companys competitive position, performance or prospects change. A competitor offering a new and better product can shrink a companys intrinsic value.Market value, meanwhile, is what investors are willing to pay for a company, reflected by its stock price. Its typically measured by calculating the companys market capitalization (or market cap): If Tattoo Advertising has 100 million shares outstanding and the current share price is $80, then its market cap is $8 billion (100 million times $80 is $8 billion).If a high-quality companys estimated intrinsic value is significantly higher than its market value, then its stock is likely undervalued and worth considering for your portfolio.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGUPS wont be able to deliver profits as costs continue to growSometimes in investing, you have to be careful what you wish for or you may get it, but not quite the way you wanted. Take UPS, for example. Many investors who wanted to profit from Amazons dominance in the retail industry but didnt want to pay the high price for its stock, purchased UPS as a proxy for the e-commerce giant. The thought was that every item that was purchased on Amazon had to be shipped, so UPSs earnings would grow as Amazon would grow. And in the most recent quarter, the first part of this investment thesis was correct. UPS delivered 712 million packages during the holiday season, a 16 percent growth compared to 2015 and more than the 700 million expected by the company. However, the company delivered disappointing earnings as well as poor guidance and the stock fell. So why did UPS miss its target and what can we expect from the company going forward? What investors have started to realize with UPS is that not all deliveries are the same. Historically, the majority of UPS packages were business-to-business shipments. This typically would involve either high-margin services like overnight delivery of letters or multiple parcels being dropped off in one location. With the rise in online shopping, the delivery mix for UPS dramatically shifted to residential deliveries. In December, 63 percent of packages were delivered to homes rather than businesses. This dramatically increased the expenses incurred by the delivery company. The UPS drivers had to sort and then deliver one-off packages to millions of different locations as opposed to large number of packages to a few businesses. And generally, these packages were shipped by large retailers with bulk pricing or more economical, lower margin services like ground shipping. So what is UPS management doing about this trend in shipping that only seems to be growing? First, the company will invest $4 billion this year in better automating its infrastructure to lower expenses in the long run. And this is in addition to the $3 billion it spent in 2016. Clearly, this will be a drag on profits in the short-run. Second, the company is attempting to increase its international shipping business, especially in the higher margin business-to-business area. However, the strong dollar is a headwind to this business as it lowers demand for U.S. products overseas. And finally, the company is attempting to raise prices to boost margins this year.In the meantime, the company is attempting to pacify investors with higher dividends and stock buybacks. Last year the company paid out $2.8 billion in cash to investors along with $2.7 billion of stock buybacks. But without higher cash flows, these payouts cannot continue.Going forward, UPS certainly has its challenges. It is being forced to spend vast sums of money automating its infrastructure just as margins are being compressed because of more residential deliveries. And while the company is attempting to raise prices, the fact that a very small number of customers like Amazon are driving so much of the companys revenue makes this difficult. And this is not an issue facing only UPS. FedEx spoke of similar difficulties during its recent earnings call. Both companies point to President Trumps promise to lower corporate taxes and spend more on infrastructure as positive catalysts on the horizon, but neither of these two proposals is set in stone. So until self-driving cars and robots are delivering our packages, e-commerce residential deliveries will boost revenue but continue to weigh on profits at UPS. That is why I am recommending caution on the stock even as Amazon and the rest of the online retail sector flourishes.

Email business meeting announcements to sure what I was going to do, then our (Barron Collier Companies) late CEO Paul Marinelli said, Why dont you come to work for me? My wife and I bought a house and here we are 17 years later. Weve never looked back. Family-owned and more than one century old, the Barron Collier Companies has interests in land development, agriculture production, oil exploration and mineral management throughout Florida, all of which Mr. Gable oversees. He said hes enjoyed working on some interesting projects during his time with the company, including massive undertakings such as developing the Ave Maria community in eastern Collier County and smaller ones including the new Bone Hook Brewing Co. North Naples Brewery & Tap Room in Creekside Corners. The family is still very entrepreneurial, he said. Its been a great place to work. The people here are very talented and honest and they enjoy what they do. It makes it great every day to come to work. He points to two issues as being areas of challenge for the Barron Collier Companies, one having to do with being a large landowner. We continue to believe in private property rights and will continue to defend our ability to utilize our property as we see fit, he said. Another challenge faces the companies agricultural enterprises in particular. The state of Florida has been greatly harmed by citrus greening, he said. Were concerned with making sure that we still have a viable citrus business, which is critical to the states overall economy. We spend a lot of time working with groups and governmental bodies to find ways to combat this greening. Where short-term goals are concerned, Mr. Gable cited continuing the conservative approach and good investments integral to the companys good run in real estate over the last few years. Long term, I think its to build on a community like Ave Maria, he added. We feel weve built a very strong foundation in the eastern part of the county, a place where people can find valueoriented homes. Were happy with the success weve had, but its just step one of a long-term project. Hes confident that the Barron Collier Companies are much better positioned to handle an economic downturn, should the need arise. At the end of the day here, our job is to move things forward in a way that is honorable and done with integrity and then turn it over to the next generation and leave it in a little bit better position than when we got here, he said. Thats the way we approach things. Interview with Blake Gable Business mentor: Former Congressman Ed Pastor, D-Az., and the late Paul Marinelli, CEO of the Barron Collier Companies. First job: Pumping gas at a Gulf Oil station on the Tamiami Trail when I was 13 years old. Business words of wisdom: Be direct, be fair, and always treat people with respect. Most recent business book: Dream Big by Cristiane Correa, about 3G, the Brazilian firm that who acquired Anheuser-Busch, Heinz, etc. Two things you look for when hiring: A strong work ethic and integrity.

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 | B9WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYREAL ESTATEOptimism drops among aspiring homeowners NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSExisting-home sales increased 3.8 percent to a 10-year high in 2016, but affordability pressures, student debt and possible confusion about down payment requirements prevented many aspiring homeowners from reaching the market, according to recent consumer insight from the National Association of Realtors. NARs Aspiring Home Buyer Profile analyzed 2016 quarterly survey data from its Housing Opportunities and Market Experience survey to capture movements in the housing expectations and sentiment of homeowners and nonhomeowners, both renters and those living with a family member. Respondents last year maintained a favorable view about homeownership, with more than 90 percent of homeowners and roughly eight out of 10 non-homeowners each quarter indicating that owning a home is part of their American Dream. Despite these positive feelings, however, optimism about it being a good time to buy diminished among nonowners. The percent share that believed it was a good time to buy declined from 63 percent in the first quarter to 55 percent in the fourth quarter. The share of homeowners who thought it was a good time to buy also dipped as the year went on but hovered at a much higher rate of around 80 percent each quarter. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said the desire to own a home and the ability to do so are not on the same wavelengths for many households. Nearly all non-homeowners said they want to own a home in the future (87 percent), but its evident that higher rents and home prices (up 41 percent in the past five years) along with limited entry-level supply and repaying student debt have combined to make buying a challenging goal, he said. Its also little surprise that non-owners in the West, SEE NABOR, B12 House Hunting250 Lake Drive N.Artist Gerry Roeder, whose work has been exhibited at the Naples Art Association, has called this lakefront residence home and created many of her works in the sun-filled studio/ suite about the garage.

where price appreciation has been the strongest, were the least optimistic about buying. Being unable to afford to buy a home was the No. 1 reason non-owners cited as to why they dont own. For the entire year, more than half of non-owners indicated they could not afford to buy, while roughly one-fifth of respondents said they needed the flexibility of renting. The NAR analysis also shows that carrying student debt is causing many non-owners to delay purchasing a home. Of the 39 percent of non-owners in the second quarter survey who said they have student debt, a majority indicated they are not very or not at all comfortable taking on a mortgage (59 percent). Mr. Yun says these findings align with a separate NAR study from last year that revealed nearly three-quarters of nonhomeowners who are employed and repaying their student loans on time believe their debt is stymieing their ability to purchase a home, with slightly more than half of borrowers expecting to be delayed by five or more years. In addition to having to postpone important milestones such as getting married and starting a family, many young adults are financially falling behind previous generations in part because of having to prioritize repaying their sizeable student loans over buying a home and saving for retirement, he said. Apparent confusion about down payment requirements could also be behind non-owners lagging confidence about buying. NARs Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers has shown that the median down payment for first-time buyers has been 6 percent for three straight years and 14 percent for repeat buyers in three of the past four years. However, when asked about the amount of a down payment needed to purchase a home, a remarkable 87 percent of non-owners indicated that a down payment of 10 percent or more is necessary. Current non-owners ultimate goal of owning a home might not be as farfetched as they believe, said William Brown, a Realtor from Alamo, Cali., and the president of NAR. There are mortgage options available for creditworthy borrowers with manageable levels of debt and smaller down payments, he added. Those interested in buying their first home in 2017 should review their finances, sit down with a lender to see if they qualify for a mortgage and find a Realtor to help them get started on their home search. In each quarter of 2016, a sample of U.S. households was surveyed via randomdigit dial, including half via cell phones and the other half via landlines. The survey was conducted for NAR by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence represents a total of 11,035 household responses.

No, not mainland extensions like Sanibel and Boca Grande where Home Depot and Robb & Stucky trucks cruise down palm-lined roads, daily, and traffic gets backed up for a mile. Real islands, with no bridges or causeways to them, attract an ingenious, independent sort of resident. They are creative, with a sense of adventure, are good at making their own fun, and more than able to amuse themselves. On Useppa, there are interest Clubs: art, bridge, book, historical, croquet, tennis, bocce, orchid, sailing and perhaps some others I am not aware of. If that is not enough, take a quick boat run to Boca Grande for lunch or shopping; or to Jensens where you can walk to downtown Captiva. Not motivated yet? Try rocking on the back porch overlooking Pine Island Sound. Enjoy the tranquility that is the quintessential nature of Useppa Island. No traffic, no stop signs, only turtle crossings. When we tell people that we live on a bridgeless island, you can see their puzzled expressions. Do we live like Palm Beach manicured estates? Others picture Gilligans Island, only worse. Neither actually. The 115 Useppa homes have all the services of the mainland, only better: a service department for repair, housekeeping, maintenance and landscape needs, public utilities, high speed Wi-Fi. Shopping. Have it done for you and delivered to the marina, then fetched to Useppa for dockside delivery. Or, do it yourself. The mainland is a brief 15-minute boat trip, with no traffic snarls! Its easy to find the Real Island Lifestyle. Useppa Island is that small mounted gem just 3 miles south of Boca Grande Pass, awaiting those individuals and families that are truly looking for their special place in the sun, on a real Florida Island.

C31-35 Island timePhil Jason recommends a book to consult before you take the kids to Sanibel and Captiva. C2 If theres one common experience mankind shares, its family dysfunction. Whether its a conspiracy theorist for an uncle or a socially awkward sibling, everyone can relate to their own particular tribes brand of lunacy and a reluctance to share it with newcomers. In The Studio Players newest production, You Cant Take It With You, theatergoers can commiserate with a newly engaged couple that dreads and survives the joining of their two misfit clans. The play, running Feb. 10-26 at Golden Gate Community Center, is a 1937 Pulitzer Prize-winner that also garnered an Academy Award for Best Picture for its 1938 film adaptation. At the center of a goofy array of characters are Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby, whose monumental task is to meld her misfit relations with his strait-laced family at her home. Love does win the day, but not without all manner of hijinks, from class tension and federal agents to embarrassing parlor games, accidental explosions and an eccentric Russian ballet instructor. Stacey Boisvert, who plays Alice, said the play is idealistic and reflects the period it was written. Between gender roles and Alices job as a secretary who wants to marry her boss son, the play is more feel-good that modern audiences often encounter and its part of its charm. Its not simplistic but it is idealistic, more than we are currently when it comes to romance and the roles of men and women, the actress said. (Alice) definitely adores Tony and I think has found some sort of kindred spirit in him The most wonderful thing that happens for her is that she realizes both families can be together and she can be with the person she loves. The feeling is mutual and Tony, who as a wealthy scion is ready to take up his fathers mantle, sees an opportunity HE PLAY AMADEUS IS AN embellishment of classical music history that continues to intrigue audiences. Written by the late Peter Shaffer (Equus, Lettice and Lovage) and first performed in 1979, Amadeus chronicles the success of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, presenting alternative facts about his demise at the hand of his supposed nemesis, composer Antonio Salieri. The show, which won the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play, runs Feb. 9-19 at the G&L Theatre in Naples, home of the professional company TheatreZone. Though the play about passion isnt a musical, it is imbued with a passionate musicality that has attracted lovers of music and theater over the years. And although Amadeus bears Mozarts name, the script centers on the character of Salieri, a spiritually maligned composer in the court of Emperor Josef II, who is bent on destroying Mozart. Indeed, the highly fictionalized play about the lives of the composers opens with Salieri as an old man, claiming to have poisoned Mozart years before, leading to his early death. The play then Studio Players set for You Cant Take It With YouBY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ BY KATHY GREYFlorida Weekly Correspondent SEE MOZART, C4 More thanMozartissues resonate with modern audiencesAs artists, we explore genius and where we fall on this spectrum.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSNaples writer-photographer follows up on award-winning travel book A (mostly) Kids Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast, by Karen T. Bartlett. Mostly Kids Guides LLC. 80 pages. Oversized paperback, $19.95. Wow! is the word for this second entry in Karen T. Bartletts Mostly Kids Guides series. And while these dazzling, humorous and information-packed books are aimed at kids, even a 75-year-old like yours truly can enjoy them. Whats not to like? An intense color palette, high-energy graphics and the friendly voice of a caring storyteller combine with a treasure trove of data and plenty of kid-friendly attitude. This book is as thorough as 80 oversized pages can be while keeping the focus on children, their parents and grandparents. Excitement is everywhere, as are helpful hints. Ms. Bartlett also includes quirky quiz questions to keep readers engaged. Maps help set the scene, and abundant photographs detail it and stimulate the appetite for exploration. Manatees, roseate spoonbills, iguanas, loggerhead turtles, bald eagles and all kinds of regional animal life parade through the pages. All the places that offer environmental education (and there are far more than youd think) are lovingly described. Places that are just plain fun are enumerated with fondness and precision. Annual festivals, pirate lore, the distinctions of the various beaches, local transportation, Indian mounds, fishing guides, miniature golf, picnic spots its all here. And theres more than just whats indicated in the title. Other islands also receive attention: Cabbage Key, Gasparilla Island, Pine Island and Cayo Costa are on the itinerary of the imagination. So is the sand castle capital of the universe, better known as Fort Myers Beach, with all its vacation attractions that encompass Estero Island. On another island is Lovers Key State Park, whose joys Ms. Bartlett sings. Theres plenty here, as well, about mainland Fort Myers. Can you overuse works like fantastic? Just in case, Karen Bartlett indulges her penchant for coinages such as sand-sational and ginormous. Shes got a gazillion of them that make a kind of laugh-out-loud, raucous music for a childs ear. And hey, if the kids are laughing, then the adults who are taking them through the wonders of this stretch of Southwest Florida are going to be happy, too, right? Spread over several pages near the end of the book is an alphabetical listing of the attractions with contact information. A separate page gives all the spots where visitors information is available. While readers can understand and appreciate the enormous amount of research that makes a book like this possible, the heart of the book lies elsewhere: in the voice Ms. Bartlett as Adventurer-in-Chief has invented to engage her readers, young and older. It is the voice a charismatic cheerleader who wears her authority lightly. But that authority is real. It comes not only from burrowing into sources, but also and more importantly from her first-hand experience exploring each and every place. Lets hope it brings the acclaim won by its predecessor: Naples-based publishing company Mostly Kids Guides LLC took top honors in Salt Lake City this past spring in the Independent Book Publishers Association Benjamin Franklin Awards. A (mostly) Kids Guide to Naples, Marco Island & The Everglades won the silver award for travel and was the only travel book among the top three winners featuring a U.S. destination. The other two winning books featured Paris and Naples, Italy. With more than 3,000 members, IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the U.S. and its Benjamin Franklin Awards are among the highest honors in the industry. Ms. Bartlett is an award-winning travel writer and photographer whose work has appeared in magazines and newspapers throughout North America and the Caribbean. She is the travel editor of Neapolitan Family Magazine and the author/photographer of 12 destination travel books. 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.

Show time is 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, at the Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center in Bonita Springs. Set in a nightclub with jazz ensemble accompaniment, Speed Dating Tonight! tells the story of ordinary people looking for love in a post-millennial world. It stars Gulfshore Operas Professional Artists in Residence performing alongside local musicians and vocalists. As evidence of the opera companys something-for-everyone goal, Artistic Director Steffanie Pearce refers to Speed Dating Tonight! as a perfect fusion of opera, popular music and music theater. Ms. Pearce tapped Southwest Floridas Charles Fornara to conduct the show. Mr. Fornaras work as an actor, musical director and conductor reflects his skill at handling all genres of music in productions for The Naples Players, the Broadway Palm Theatre and BIG Arts on Sanibel. His acting resume also includes two of the ultimate opera/music theater hybrid roles: the title role in Sweeney Todd at TheatreZone in 2015 as well the roles of Valjean and Javert in Les Misrables in Germany in the late 1990s. He admires Speed Dating Tonight! for its artful way of combining very different styles without losing momentum. Though he warns that a score representing too many musical styles could have its pitfalls, he applauds composer Michael Ching for bringing cohesion to the various elements. Its hard to spot exactly where opera leaves off and jazz or musical theater sneak in, he said. Youve just got to experience it. The characters include a bartender, waitress, busboy and the coordinator in leading roles, with a variety of daters who tell their life story in threeminute interviews. Some of the local cast members were selected through Ms. Pearces Gulfshores Got Talent competition last fall. Like Ms. Pearce, Mr. Fornara sees Speed Dating Tonight! as an ideal opportunity for people who have always been intimidated by opera to get their feet wet. Its entertaining, unusual and moves really quickly, he said. Theres nothing stodgy or snobby about it.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtakes us back in time to when the two composers meet. Salieri, having heard Mozarts incomparably complex music, eagerly awaits an introduction. Mozart, to Salieris surprise, presents himself as a blithering, salacious fool devoid of self-awareness. This is how we meet the character of Mozart (played by Adolpho Blaire), undulating openly with his bride-to-be, Constanze (Kelly Pekar). The reverent Salieri (Frank Blocker) is appalled at the display, and his eager desire to meet Mozart swiftly turns to scorn, jealousy and crippling dismay that the Mozart who possesses a divine musical gift the voice of God cannot be reconciled to this rank and bawdy excuse for a man. This is the genesis of the conflict between the two composers.Supporting the actors Mark Danni is the founding artistic director of TheatreZone, a professional Equity theater company now in its 12th season. As such, he is selects the lineup of shows each season. Amadeus had been on his short list for a couple of years, he says, and it seemed to fit into this season well (with George M!, Dolly Partons to 5: The Musical and the Peter Allen musical comedy Legs Diamond Lives Again). With a musicians background, Mr. Danni is drawn to musicals, although Amadeus is not. Although the music in Amadeus is not performed live, he admires the ways in which it is woven into the production. Its a fascinating piece, he says. Salieris music is good, but whats fun about Peter Shaffers story is Mozarts considerable genius, Mr. Danni adds. Though Salieri enjoyed success in his day, his contributions to the musical body of the era could have evaporated had it not been for Amadeus. There arent many great composers you can list from that era, Mr. Danni says, citing Haydn and Mozart as the two with classical classical staying power. Everyone, including Salieri, is forgotten forgotten, that is, until Mr. Shaffer penned Amadeus. Ironically, Mr. Danni says, (Salieri) had a much better life (than Mozart). He was paid well. Had a better job. There is also historical speculation that Salieri had jealousy and longing for Mozarts genius, creating the dramatic conflict necessary to buoy Mr. Shaffers script. With his musical background in percussion and conducting, actors tell Mr. Danni that among his directorial strengths is a rhythmic pacing that maintains a shows momentum. That talent will be integral to weaving a successful production of Amadeus, a heady tapestry of historical personification combined with classical music and creative storytelling. Mr. Danni also brings to the production service to the actors. My job is to look at the piece as a whole, but Im definitely open to suggestion, he says. Im dealing with professionals whose job has been focusing on their characters for months. To ignore a talented actors input on their character would be stupid of me. When you get in the room and start the work, brilliant ideas come out. Great art is made by great artists working together for the betterment of the production, he says. In contrast to the stereotypical authoritarian director, Mr. Danni works in service to the actors. Thats my philosophy. (Directors have) the vision, but otherwise, were there for the actors to give their greatest performance ever.Josef II and ConstanzePerhaps no one in the cast understands Mr. Dannis directorial philosophy more than Larry Alexander, who portrays Josef II in this, his 18th production with TheatreZone. As emperor of the court, Mr. Alexanders character is the boss who gets to say no and who defers to Salieri, the suckup courtier who knows how to play both sides of the coin. he says. I love the character. I get to be imperious and have great lines. And (the show is) so beautifully written. As a full-time professional actor who will have six different scripts under his belt by years end, hes delighted that Amadeus is one of them. Its a great part, he says, with a particularly lovely cast. Mr. Alexander introduced actress Kelly Pekar, who plays Constanze, Mozarts wife, to the Naples-based company. She is not an educated person, Ms. Pekar says about her character, but she is incredibly dedicated to Mozart. By shows end, however the marriage to Mozart is strained, providing one of her favorite scenes in the play. The New York City-based actress has always had a keen interest in Amadeus, both play and film versions, and she embraces the role of Constanze for her bravery and the fact that, similar to Mozart, she has the opportunity to exhibit unbridled childishness. She also welcomes the challenge of putting the show together over a very short period of time. She arrived to the first rehearsal in late January with her part memorized. The productions concerted rehearsal schedule gives you the freedom to dive in right away. You dont have time to overthink things, she says. Constanzes first appearance with Mozart, she says, changes the emotional temperature of the play, one of the many dramatic arcs crafted into Mr. Shaffers work. The role of MozartIn his fifth performance at TheatreZone, New Yorkbased Adolpho Blaire takes on the mercurial role of Mozart, who is in diametric opposition to Salieri, he says, thus establishing the conflict that is the foundation of the script. He has a wicked tongue and an infantile sense of humor, says the actor who finds a weird connection to Michael Jackson. Like Mozart, Mr. Jackson was a revered child prodigy who maintained that childish sensibility into adulthood and was often seen as freakish and weird, Mr. Blaire says. Dealing with that genius element, we dont know what to do with them. (Mozarts) social graces are not strong at all. Hes very volatile and cant maintain a diplomatic personality. Indeed, the playwright takes artistic license to draw vast contrasts between Mozart and Salieri. For artistic value, (the playwright) presents Salieri as the one who destroys Mozart, Mr. Blaire says. With the playwright capitalizing on conspiracy theories that swirled around Mozarts death at the age of 35, Mr. Blaire says, Shaffer said this is complete fiction, but it works for this piece. As artists, we explore genius and where we fall on this spectrum. How interesting it is that Salieri, who has become a footnote in history, had to face that he was serviceable, but not brilliant, he adds. And heres (Mozart), who can scribble something off the top of his head and have it be brilliant. The challenge for the actor is to find the characters level of mental competence and his place on the genius spectrum. Still, Mr. Blaire says, the character of Mozart must be relatable. The actor brings the character to the rehearsal process at a level 10, he says. But you cant drive him as a level 10 all the time or the audience will tire of him. The key, he says, is finding levels of colors to paint Mozart as relatable to the audience. But there is one who cannot possibly relate to mercurial Mozart, and that is Salieri, to whom the script really belongs.Demons play outSalieri has a constant stage presence, so its a good thing actor Frank Blockers bio is filled with one-man shows. (Readers may be familiar with his Frankly Funny Fridays at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs, where he also teaches.) Salieris demons, both intellectual and spiritual, play out clearly through the play, punctuated by acts of betrayal and levels of rage and dismay. These paint a portrait of a man at once frustrated with his need to adhere to convention and his deepest desire to achieve the level of gifted genius introduced in the form of his competitor, Mozart. Theres so much going on (in the show), Mr. Blocker says, referring to a rapid succession of music cues and rich storytelling rarely seen in other plays. We first meet Salieri at age 82, he says, and when the story ends he is 31. His connection to Mozart is really only four or five years. As much as its a fictitious account, Salieris work was more predictable. He was writing things that could be broken down, following convention. When he hears the work of Mozart, it stirs a forbidden lust in him. When he cant reconcile the heavenly music with the buffoonery of Mozart, Salieri is launched into a multi-layered internal conflict that results in malice. Interestingly, the character of Salieri embodies timelessly relatable themes of jealousy, dismay, injustice right down to the betrayal of God. With the arrival of Mozart, Salieris world is completely unseated. My thing with Salieri is that he did choose God and was made to feel extra special. And here comes this interloper who cusses, is nasty and doesnt behave properly, Mr. Blocker says. Why does he deserve the voice of God? Had Salieri chosen to work with Mozart instead of against him, the actor speculates, one could have been anchoring the other. Who knows? Its a fictional account, but it makes you notice the negativity of people around you. Mr. Blockers embodiment of the Salieri character makes him question his own motivations as a performing artist: Did I squash someone? he wonders. He recalls dismissing a fellow actors joy in being accepted to an esteemed acting troupe. I apologized, but I should have simply said congratulations. (Instead), I was busy being superior, he says. Amadeus refers to Mozart, yes, but most of the plays inherent themes belong to Salieri. As the actor portraying him, Mr. Blocker sees that Salieri chose to be the villain; to silence Gods voice. From that, the actor leaves us with this wisdom: Be happy for someones prosperity and cheer them on. Critiquing and being jealous just tears away at people. But joy trumps everything.

Lutronix InAnnual Jazz to Broadway concert benefits Laces of LoveA former Saturday Night Live Band saxophonist and other award-winning musicians join forces for the eighth annual From Jazz to Broadway concert to benefit Laces of Love at 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, at Covenant Church of Naples. General admission tickets are $50; platinum tickets with reserved seating for the concert and an afterparty hosted by Norman Love Confections and Prestige Catering are $150. Laces of Love provides new shoes, especially sneakers, to low-income and disadvantaged children in Collier and Lee counties. Since its incorporation in 2005, the nonprofit has provided more than 100,000 pairs of new shoes to deserving youngsters. Laces of Love does not give shoes directly to children. Recipients are determined with help from guidance counselors and school nurses in public schools and from various nonprofit organizations. Many times the Laces of Love shoes are the first pair of new shoes the child has ever had. The lineup of performers for From Jazz to Broadway includes Broadway veteran Glory Crampton (The Phantom of the Opera, The Fantasticks); the womens a cappella group BLING!; the gospel group Higher Ground; trumpeter Dan Miller, who has performed with Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsallis; saxophonist Lew Del Gatto, who performed for 20 years with the Saturday Night Live Band; concert pianist Jodie DeSalvo; recording artist Robert Williamson; and the local duo Billy Dean and Dawn. Young musicians and singers who perform with the Naples Philharmonic will also take the stage. Concert organizer Tamra Nashman Richardt and Courtney Perna of Fox4 Morning Blend will emcee the evening. Tickets area available in advance by calling 495-1954 and will also be sold at the door. For more information about Laces of Love, visit 6 million diapers give Baby Basics cause to celebrate with music BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comBaby Basics celebrates distributing 6 million diapers to deserving families with a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, at Naples United Church of Christ. The afternoon will bring together performers including saxophonist Lew Del Gatto and trumpeter Dan Miller, vocalist Rebecca Richardson, flautist Leelo Basham, violinist Glenn Basham, cellist Adam Satinsky, the Naples Philharmonic Youth Jazz Band and the churchs sanctuary choir. All of the artists are donating their time and talent, and Shulas Steakhouse has kicked in a complementary cocktail party with hors doeuvres, beer and wine for VIP ticketholders and those who purchase premiere concert seating. The post-concert party takes place from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, at Shulas at the Hilton Naples. Neapolitan Jean Ann Lynch founded Baby Basics in her northern home of Ridgewood, N.J., in 1990 to provide diapers to low-income, working parents, allowing them a little more cash to feed and shelter themselves and their children. Baby Basics now has affiliate organizations throughout the country, including the local chapter, which has grown to include 10 distribution sites in Naples and Bonita Springs. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, diapers can cost families an average of $100 a month. In low-income homes, parents often have to spend more than that because they only have enough cash to purchase small quantities at a time, Mrs. Lynch says. In addition, many people dont realize that a household that depends on two working parents cannot go the thrifty route with cloth diapers, as they are not permitted in licensed daycare facilities. Parents often have to stretch the supplies of disposable diapers they do have, often resulting in diaper rash and a hygiene problem for their children. Mrs. Lynch estimates that in 2016, the local chapter helped about 435 families. To receive diaper assistance, families must be working and not receiving cash assistance. In addition to celebrating Baby Basics local success and enjoying a program of fine music, concert attendees will be able to learn about how that can contribute to the nonprofits continued success. Tickets are $35 for general admission and $100 for VIP admission. To purchase tickets, call United Church of Christ at 261-5469 or visit www. more information about Baby Basics, visit Robert Willliamson

WWW.NAPLESZOO.ORG SUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDSSUNNY DAYS,CLOUDEd LEOPARDS ARTS COMMENTARYDead Accounts: Families, feuds and finances make for laughs at the SugdenFamilies. You might leave, but you can never really truly escape. In Dead Accounts, Jack (Christopher Rand) was the one sibling who got away. He left the Midwest for a rich wife and a banking job in New York City. Now hes suddenly returned to his childhood home in Cincinnati, wearing an Armani suit and acting strangely. He and his sister, Lorna (Judith Gangi Santos), gorge on ice cream while he boasts about how he bribed a store clerk with $1,000 to open after hours and let him take as much ice cream as he wanted. The kitchen table and counter are filled with ice cream containers 25 of them, in every conceivable flavor. (Be sure to eat before seeing this Theresa Rebeck play, because theres plenty of food in it as well as descriptions of food.) Its difficult to get a reading on Jack. Is he high? Is this just his personality? Is he hiding something? Why does he have so much money? How does he know so much about opioids? Why has he suddenly returned home? Where is his wife? Though Mr. Rand throws himself into the role with zest, he seems miscast. The actor only graduated from college a couple of years ago, yet his character is supposed to be in his mid-30s. His boyish looks unfortunately make him seem more like a teen than someone whos been married for seven years. Likewise for Mary Louise Mitchell, who plays Jacks wife, Jenny. Shes an uber-bitch, disapproving of everything and everyone, her face a perpetual scowl. Jack refers to her as my glowering wife, and the descriptions right on the mark. But the two of them lack the gravitas or sophistication their roles demand and seem like kids just playing at being adults. Some age-appropriate casting by director Bryce Alexander would have made this a stronger production. But then again, this is community theater, and perhaps no one in their mid-30s auditioned. Alyssa LeBlanc has designed a typical, nondescript Ohio kitchen with religious plaques and Corelle dishes though more linoleum, rather than wood plank flooring, would have been truer to the script. Its Ms. Santos in the role of Lorna who anchors this play. Shes the sister who got stuck at home living with the parents, taking care of them. Shes a typical Midwesterner: the salt of the earth, plain-spoken, logical. A little zaftig, shes on a diet. Her life exists of taking her mother to the supermarket, the library or the pharmacy; shes waiting for it to change. Ms. Santos plays her well, and we believe her. As an audience we root for her, especially when Phil (Bernardo Santana) shows up. He went to school with her and once asked her out, but she said no. Hes still carrying the torch for her. Its so obvious, the way he looks at her with lovesick eyes. The two have some humorous scenes together, especially one in which he keeps trying to build up the courage to ask her out again. Ms. Santos and Mr. Rand also have some playful banter as siblings, reverting to their childhood selves. Margo Crupi plays their longsuffering mother, Barbara. A religious Catholic, she believes the myth, one of her children jokes, that pain is good for you. Shes worried about her husband (off-stage, never seen) whos suffering again with kidney stones. But while they talk about him, he never seems quite real. Ms. Crupi gets some laughs, but I wished shed made more of her opportunity. Dead Accounts covers a lot of ground: family, the banking crisis, facing our mortality, Midwesterners vs. New Yorkers, morality and responsibility. Can stealing still be considered wrong if you steal from an institution that itself has stolen from others and mistreated them? It contains some snappy lines and promising scenes, but the script also seems slight. (It was chosen before Mr. Alexander came on board as artistic director at The Naples Players, and one wonders why, when it did so poorly on Broadway, lasting only a couple months and receiving mixed reviews from critics.) It seems unfinished, almost, ending too quickly. A scene with Ms. Santos involving music by Mark E. Pettey comes across as unnatural. When the music began playing, I looked around, thinking it was someones ringtone. The music and the lighting for Lornas monologue about planting a tree in the backyard seemed too heavy-handed and brought you out of the scene, rather than making it more dramatic. Perhaps more subtlety would have served the scene better.Costume designer Dot Auchmoody provides some great outfits for the cast, including a sleeveless sheath dress for Jenny that has a barely perceptible pinstripe, and penguin pajama bottoms for Lorna. I feel conflicted about the Naples Players production of Dead Accounts. Though Mr. Rand obviously has acting skills, I just couldnt believe him in his role. But its highly entertaining to see Ms. Santos on stage and cheer her characters bumpy but burgeoning romance. And while Ms. Rebecks script possesses some great lines and laughs, I wish it delivered more than it does.

CONTR A CT BRIDGEThe practical side of bridgeBY STEVE BECKERAssume youre in three notrump and West leads a spade. You count your tricks and find that you have only seven of them. You have the prospect of an eighth trick if the hearts divide 3-3, and there is also the chance of winning a diamond finesse for your ninth trick. But these possibilities, though certainly legitimate, are not as promising as the chance of developing two club tricks by forcing out the A-K. Furthermore, you still have a chance to test your luck in the red suits later on if the need arises. So you win the spade jack with the queen, cross to the queen of hearts and lead a low club. You hope East will follow low and West will win the trick with the ace or king because, in that case, youll have nine sure tricks by forcing out the other high club, whatever West returns. Unfortunately, East goes up with the ace of clubs at trick three and shifts to the jack of diamonds, attacking your principal weak spot. You had hoped this wouldnt happen, which was one reason you led the first club from dummy rather than your hand. However, it has happened. Your best shot at this point is to play the ace rather than finesse the queen. You refuse the finesse because if East has the diamond king, the contract is ice-cold, whatever you do. But if West has the king, as in the actual deal, you could be defeated by a diamond continuation from West after he takes the queen with the king. You next play a club, and, since West has the king, you make the contract. Your queen of diamonds is not subject to attack with West on lead, and no matter what he returns, you are certain of at least nine tricks.

H00616 8/16 FILM CAPSULESA Dogs Purpose (Britt Robertson, Dennis Quaid, voice of Josh Gad) The soul of a dog (Mr. Gad) is reincarnated over four lifetimes, touching different humans in the process. It might appeal to kids, but anyone else even dog lovers will find the manipulative, forced drama tough to stomach. Rated PG.20th Century Women (Annette Bening, Lucas Jade Zumann, Elle Fanning) In 1979, a singer mother (Ms. Bening) asks two female friends (Ms. Fanning and Greta Gerwig) to help her 15year-old son (Mr. Zumann) become a man. Ms. Bening leads the stellar ensemble in this wonderful coming of age story that sublimely captures the travails of adolescence and the spirit of the 0s. Dont miss it! Rated R.Silence (Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson) Director Martin Scorseses latest follows two priests (Mr. Garfield and Mr. Driver) as they travel to Japan to find their mentor (Mr. Neeson). 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 (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 shooins 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.

NoOn paper, The Comedian looks promising. After all, it stars Robert De Niro, Edie Falco, Danny DeVito, Leslie Mann and Harvey Keitel. Notable comedians from past and present appear in cameos, including Billy Crystal and Jim Norton. It was produced and directed by Taylor Hackford (Ray), an experienced auteur who knows how to connect with audiences. Indeed, everything about this indicates it could be something special. And then you watch it. The jokes are hit and miss, the story is scattered and contrived, and the protagonist is his own worst enemy. Its not terrible, but the lack of satisfaction when its over is alarming. The pigheaded protagonist is Jackie Burke (Mr. De Niro), an aged stand-up comic who once had a hit TV show and now spits insults at audience members like hes Don Rickles. In the opening moments he whines to his agent (Ms. Falco) about performing at a low-paying Legends Night alongside Jimmie Walker and Brett Butler. Ungrateful and arrogant, he seems. When a heckler (Happy Anderson) gets under his skin, Jackie proceeds to ram his microphone into the mans nose. Art Linson and Richard LaGravenese wrote the dialog, while comedians Lewis Friedman and Jeff Ross wrote the comedy routines; one speculates that punching out a heckler is a fantasy come true for stand-up comedians everywhere. Part of Jackies punishment for the hecklers nose is community service in a soup kitchen, which is where he meets Harmony (Ms. Mann). An oddly symbiotic friendship ensues, leading to her agreeing to join him at his brother Jimmys (Mr. DeVito) daughters (Lucy DeVito) lesbian wedding, and him agreeing to have dinner with her domineering father (Mr. Keitel). This leads to some funny moments, but then some plot twists take the story in questionable directions. The Comedian needs to be more consistently funny in order for us to like Jackie. For example, its a clever idea to have him test out new material on the homeless people hes serving at a Thanksgiving soup kitchen. But as he makes dirty jokes about turkey and the early settlers, he fails to connect. Part of this could be Mr. De Niros delivery, which at times struggles to hit punch lines. Another part could be that Jackie is screaming F-bombs inside a church, and it all just seems wrong. Context and delivery are essential parts of comedy, and neither is what it needs to be here. Also telling: All of the other comedians who appear and tell jokes and there are many are funnier than Jackie, whos supposed to be a comedy legend. Sure, part of the premise is that hes washed up and not what he used to be, but he needs to land more jokes in order for us to believe he was ever funny. Its always tricky to balance serious drama with humor, because when youre not a full-out comedy you have fewer opportunities to connect with jokes, which makes it all the more important that the jokes hit. When they dont hit, you get The Comedian. dan >> Lucy DeVito is the daughter of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman (Cheers).

You can wear layers, a heavy coat, a hat and gloves, and its as if the weather says, Is that the best you got? as it permeates to your bones. But there are movies to be watched, experiences to be had and memories to be made. As my thin Florida blood struggled to insulate me from temperatures in the teens and single digits, a trip to the toasty VR (Virtual Reality) Palace was just what I needed. Inside, 15 installations were presented gallery-style. We had 50 minutes to see as much as we could. We couldnt get to everything, but we enjoyed being immersed in the mix of silly and serious. When you put on a virtual reality headset it encapsulates your vision, and headphones control your hearing. I found it fun sometimes, like when I got to play with aliens and neon cats in the cutesy Asteroids and Chocolate. With Miyubi, in which the participant takes the viewpoint of a just-opened toy robot in a dysfunctional familys 1980s living room, I was reminded of my childhood. And with the more serious Chasing Coral, an offshoot of the U.S. Documentary Audience Award winner of the same name, I became intrigued by the bigger implication of virtual reality: Although the technology is still in development, experiential applications are likely the future of entertainment, with the real question being how it will manifest in a profitable way. After the wife insisted I spend hundreds of dollars only to discover 627 new ways to fall while skiing, I finally got to the movies. First up was Nobody Speak: Hulk Hogan, Gawker, and Trials of a Free Press, a documentary about a lawsuit the former wrestling star filed against online mag Gawker after it posted a video of him having sex with the wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge. I found it interesting how the film differentiates between Hogan as a larger-than-life character and Terry Bollea (Hogans real name). It also delves into freedom of the press and what an outlet should/should not consider when deeming something newsworthy. It veers off track in the second half, however, when it deviates from Hogan to cover Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson and President Trump, and how each has had issues with press coverage. Netflix acquired the film for distribution; a release date on the streaming giant has not been announced. Next was Burning Sands, which was co-produced by Netflix and will be released March 10. It tells the story of hell week for fraternity pledges at an all-black college. A straight drama thats alarming and critical of the frat system, the characters absorb daily mental and physical abuse and yet insist this is something they want. The flaw is that except for one supporting character, its never clear why this brotherhood is so important to the pledges. Still, its a tense drama, and the hazing will no doubt be shocking to some. Crown Heights won the Audience

(239) 649-2275 Award for a U.S. Dramatic Film, and its easy to see why. Based on a true story, it follows low-level street thug Colin Warner (Keith Stanfield) as hes wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years in prison. His best friend Carl King (nicely played by former NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha) is determined to prove Colins innocence. This is the kind of movie that will make you furious at the injustice, but also inspire you with its humanity and heart. Amazon Studios purchased the film for a little more than $2 million; release info is still TBD. Finally, Marjorie Prime won the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize, presented to the best film about science or technology. Set in the future, a widow (Lois Smith) speaks with a hologram of her late husband when he was a younger man (Jon Hamm). Her daughter (Geena Davis) doesnt think this is a good idea. Adapted from a stage play, it has a stale brown color scheme that, when coupled with a story that deals directly with death, renders the movie desperately in need of a sense of life. However, its thought provoking in this way: Would you want a hologram of your loved one to keep you company after he/she dies? As of press time, the film was not picked up for distribution. Before the flight home we stopped at Olympic Park outside of Salt Lake City. It was cool to see where the bobsled, ski jump and other events were held in 2002, but the closure of the bobsled ride that takes you down the track at 70 mph was a huge disappointment. Still, the trip was a career-long dream come true, and I cant wait to go back. Dan Hudaks film reviews appear every week in Florida Weekly.

See Burn This before it hits BroadwayJust months before the plays Broadway revival, The Laboratory Theater of Florida presents Lanford Wilsons Burn This through Feb. 25 at the historic Kiwanis Hall near downtown Fort Myers. Set in the bohemian world of lower New York City, the story exposes the emotional isolation of Anna and Pale, two outcasts who meet in the wake of the accidental death of Robbie. Their determined struggle toward emotional honesty and liberation exemplifies the humor and complexity of all of Mr. Wilsons work and confirms his standing as one of Americas greatest playwrights. Part love story, part comedy, part drama, Burn This is exciting for audiences and for actors alike, the Fort Myers companys Artistic Director Annette Trossbach says. Its full of layers, shadows and subtext, she adds. The show stars Naples resident Paul Graffy along with Ms. Trossbach, Rob Green and Brandon Somers. Tickets are $21 for adults, $10 for students in advance, $25 and $12 at the door.

This uproarious comedy follows three actors Jeff, James and Phillip who come together to present Doyles magnum opus, The Hound of the Baskervilles. As they juggle dozens of roles between them, mishaps and mayhem occur throughout. This adaptation comes from the UK-based company Peepolykus, know for its clowning, slapstick and physical comedy as well as developing a strong relationship between the audience and the performers. The spirit of this will be alive and well in the Gulfshore Playhouse production. First published as a serialized novel in 1901, Arthur Conan Doyles famous work follows the story of world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty associate, John Watson, as they unravel the mystery of an apparent curse that has befallen the Baskerville family. The pair travels to the Dartmoor in southeastern Britain to investigate the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, who appears to have been frightened to death near the footprints of a giant hound. It is a race against time as Holmes and Watson work to discover the culprit before the last heir of the Baskerville family becomes the curses next victim. The Hound of the Baskervilles is directed by Andrew Paul, founder and producing artistic director of the Kinetic Theatre in Pittsburgh. Jeffrey Binder, artistic associate at Gulfshore Playhouse, is Sherlock Holmes and others. Mr. Binder most recently played Henry Higgins in Gulfshore Playhouses production of My Fair Lady. James David Larson, who plays John Watson and others, most recently appeared in the Roundabout Theatre Companys revival of Into the Woods and has performed at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota and the Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers. Phillip Taratula, who plays Henry Baskerville and many others, has performed around the country and, like Mr. Larson, is making his debut with Gulfshore Playhouse.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CELEBRATE LOVE THE PANDORA STORES AT9123 Strada Place # 7107 Naples, FL 239.431.5520MERCATO740 N. Collier Blvd #106 Marco Island, FLPROTOCOL AT THE ESPLANADE ANTIQUESNo lie: President Washington dolls can bring a pretty penny BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELWhile Valentines Day is always Feb. 14, Presidents Day can be any one of seven dates, the third Monday in February closest to the 20th. In 1885 George Washingtons birthday, Feb. 22, was made a national holiday. But in 1971, Congress decided that instead of celebrating the real birthdays of President Washington and President Lincoln (Feb. 12), there would a Monday celebration for both. Why Monday? To give everyone a threeday weekend away from work. President Washington was remembered in designs for silhouettes, paintings, prints, medals, cameos, glass patterns, toys, Staffordshire figures to keep on the mantel and even drapery fabrics. A President Washington doll made after 1880 looks like Washington in his presidential years. The doll is made of cloth with pressed and oil-painted features and gray hair worn in a ponytail. His eyes are blue. The doll probably was made as a part of the 1889 centennial celebration of Washingtons inauguration. It was made by Martha Jenks Chase who started making portrait dolls in her backyard about 1880. A 25-inch tall Chase Washington doll sold at a May 2016 auction in Las Vegas for $3,080. Q: In 1963 my uncle gave me a platter that is 16 inches long and 12 inches wide, and is marked Bramble and Wedgwood. Its cream-colored with a border of flowers and thorns in shades of white, pale pink and garnet. Is it worth anything? It has great sentimental value to me. A: Josiah Wedgwood established his pottery in England in 1759. Wedgwood is still in business, now part of Fiskars Group. Bramble pattern was introduced in 1963. The briar rose design was made in several colors and was one of Wedgwoods popular patterns. The value of your platter is about $70. Q : I have a plate with crown mark above the words Sanderlands & Colley Ltd. England in a circle. Ive searched the internet, but I didnt find any item with the same name or mark. Can you tell me something about this company and how old this plate is? A: The mark is probably Sandlands & Colley Ltd., not Sanderlands & Colley. The company operated Lichfield Pottery in Hanley, Staffordshire, England, from 1907 to 1910. The mark may have been used after that to about 1913 by W. Sandland. Pieces made by Sandlands & Colley occasionally show up online. The monetary value depends on the items decorative value. Q: I found an old weather-beaten trunk with wood slats on a flat top and metal corners. It has a metal lock with the name E.A. Seagrove. It appears to be some sort of navy officers box. The trunk is missing a corner piece and the top is warped. Does it have any value? Should I pay to restore it? A: E.A. Seagrove was a naval outfitter in business in Portsea, Portsmouth, England. The company made brass bound chests and other items. The family business started in 1795 w hen Edwins father, William, who had a textile and drapery business near the dockyards in Portsea, began supplying naval officers with equipment and furniture. The name of the company changed several times as his sons and other members of the Seagrove family joined the business. The name of the business was E.A. Seagrove from 1866 to 1892, when it became Seagrove & Co. If you want to use it, ask a restorer what it would cost to put it in shape. Then decide if it can be restored. It has almost no antique value. Q: Id like information about my greatgrandmothers full set of beautiful dishes and serving bowls given to her as a wedding gift in 1876. They are marked LS & S Carlsbad Austria. A: This mark was used about 1895 to 1917 by Lewis Straus & Sons, importers located in New York City. Carlsbad was part of Austria until after World War I, when it became part of Czechoslovakia. Today the town is called Karlovy Vary and is part of the Czech Republic. Several factories in Austria, Bavaria and Germany used Carlsbad in their mark. Many pieces were exported to the United States in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Sets of china are hard to sell, but you can enjoy the dishes for their sentimental value. Q: Whats the current value of a 1920s Master Prophylactic coin-operated dispenser in excellent condition, with keys? It was manufactured by the Norris Co. in Chicago. A: Norris Manufacturing Co. made the Master Prophylactic dispenser beginning in 1920. The company made at least 30 different vending machines and arcade games in the 1920s and 1930s. The Master Prophylactic dispenser is cast iron and was made to be mounted on the wall in the mens room. There are collectors of this type of machine as well as many other more decorative types. A few have sold at auction for over $1,000. Tip: To clean a very dirty old iron pan, spray it with oven cleaner, put it in a plastic bag for a day or two, then scrub it with a brass brush and rinse. Wear rubber gloves. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. The amount of mail makes personal answers or appraisals impossible.

Is it true that shell be back in a revival of Veronica Mars? Please say yes! Kendra F., via emailA: Yes, but they are not sure yet when this will happen. Kristen and creator Rob Thomas have teased its return in a six-episode redux of the cult-hit series. The only hitch: They have to work around her schedule for The Good Place and Robs schedule for the CWs Lost Boys revival. Q: You mentioned a while back that Hand of God would be back on Amazon soon, but I havent been able to find anything else about it. Do you have an update? Valerie F., Madison, Wis.A: The second and final season of the series starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delany is slated for March 10. Creator Ben Watkins gave me a few teasers on what to expect: In season two, Pernells empire is in jeopardy, and part of that Harris-family empire includes (new cast member) Linda Gray (as Pernells aunt). She becomes a bigger part of the story because she wants to make sure that if he goes down, the Harris family doesnt go down with him. We get to explore a little bit about what was going on with PJ and the software he was working on. And theres a connection there to Jocelyn (PJs wife) that mystery is driven by Crystal Harris. She really steps into a leading role and drives the story forward because she is intent on finding out what happened to her sons software and fulfilling his legacy.Q: Do you know if Longmire will be back for a sixth season on Netflix? Jeff S., via emailA: Netflix has announced that the Western crime drama will be back for a sixth and final season. All we know as of this writing is that it will premiere sometime this year, and it will be 10 episodes. Executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny released this statement: We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters who inspire lasting memories. Most importantly, were committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Another Broken Egg Caf, 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 300-0696 While Another Broker Egg offers traditional items, theres lots of unusual fare, too. 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 p aired 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 all-natural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, soft-boiled 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.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 Let Vergina 700 Fifth Avenue South, Naples, Florida 34102 239.659.7008 Visit For Our Menu VERGINATHE STAR OF GREAT DINING IN NAPLES MAKE YOUR RESERVATION NOWSeating is Limited Valentines Day BE THAT SPECIAL PLACE WITH THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE ON *Offering Special Valentines Menu Only* CUISINE REVIEWKC American Bistro has grown bigger, better over the yearsWhen Keith Casey opened his little bistro in the dead of summer in a none-tooobvious spot off Vanderbilt Beach Road in 2009, I wondered if hed make a go of it.Sure, he was a talented chef with a first-class pedigree a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America who had worked with famed chefs Roy Yamaguchi, a master of fusion, and Larry Forgione, renowned for his American cuisine. But Naples can be a fickle mistress, a tough place in which to launch a small, chef-driven establishment outside of the trendy areas such Old Naples or Mercato, and one thats not even visible from the street.The dinner I had then was very good, but Mr. Casey has upped his game considerably since then. The meal I had last Saturday was exceptional in every way. Things have changed here. Lets start with the fact that the dining room is more than twice the size of the original, having taken over an adjoining storefront to allow for a full bar, more tables and a row of banquettes. Tables are set well apart and even though there were only two of us, we were shown to a table for four, which I think should be the minimum for any party. There was music playing but softly and, although the dining room was quickly filling up and the volume was rising, my companion and I were able to converse without shouting. Service was superb from start to finish. After the smiling, smartly dressed hostess showed us to our table, our server quickly appeared to inquire about beverages. It took a little time to work through the well-chosen wine list, but we found a 2014 Benovia pinot noir that was superbly balanced, with lots of cherry and raspberry notes, a hint of plum and bright acidity. Server assistants were on their game, too. A young man appeared with a breadbasket, asked if we wanted bread and then produced a little container of honey truffle butter to a ccompany it. Mr. Casey a long, lean man who looks like he hardly eats, much less creates food for a living has developed a menu that pays homage to regional cuisine. Dishes fall into one of five categories: New England, Southwest, Southeast, Heartland and Pacific. We sampled from four of the five. The Florida fresh ceviche ($12), classified as Southwestern, featured large pieces of black grouper and yellowfin tuna along with corn, julienned red and orange bell pepper and microgreens in a light citrusy marinade. Although I prefer a livelier version, the creamy cilantro crme fraiche served with it added flavor and texture that compensated for its lack of heat. Better still was a New England dish, the Maryland blue crab souffl ($16), which might best be described as a crab cake on steroids. It was good sized and chock full of large pieces of succulent crab lightly seasoned and finished with a breaded topping that was lightly browned and crisp. It sat upon a pool of sweet corn puree that added a touch of sweetness. (Just a word on sauces here: Mr. Casey demonstrates the classic sauce acumen found among CIA grads. The sauces are different and distinctive for each dish and play a far more prominent role than on many menus. Among those on the menu are Mission fig vinaigrette, apple cider beurre blanc, zante currant gastrique and Cajun caper remoulade.) The ever-vigilant server assistant came by shortly after we finished our appetizers to sweep away the dishes. Our server appeared with our entrees shortly thereafter. From the Pacific region came Troll king salmon, encrusted in pumpkin seeds atop a stellar sweet potato gratin. The fish had a rich salmon flavor and was cooked to a perfect medium, as ordered. On the side were al dente asparagus spears and an apple and fennel slaw that added a tartsweet dimension to the dish.From the Heartland came the zinfandel braised short rib ($33), a richly flavored cut of meat that had not a smidgen of fat on it and was so tender it fell apart when touched with a fork. A wild mushroom veal jus added another rich layer of flavor. Parsnip-laced mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked Brussels sprouts came with it. Both entrees were expertly prepared and beautifully plated. Portions were ample without being oversized. One dessert of house-made chocolate ganache with crme Anglaise and wild berry coulis ($7) served two of us well. The ganache possessed a deep chocolate flavor and, as you might expect, was extremely rich. It was a bit on the stiff side, which might have been the result of refrigeration, but we finished the large mound along with the sauces and two huge, sweet blackberries. Throughout the meal, our server checked on us as we sampled each course, poured wine as needed and showed up just enough to let us know she was around without hovering.Wherever I looked, servers were gliding to and fro, delivering food, dispensing advice, operating like a welloiled machine. That sort of precision doesnt happen by accident. Its the result of training.Maybe its the larger space that has allowed the long-legged chef/owner to find his stride. I cant say why its so much better, but if you havent visited KC American Bistro in a while, its time to return for a delicious culinary trip around the country.

Kalea Bay releases second tower as first tower approaches selloutPrices start at $1.3 millionKalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed this Fall, has already surpassed the 80% sold mark, stated Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. All residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Wilson. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Wilson. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Wilson said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Wilson. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed this fall. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, 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.

2 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGNER Q&ATROY BEASLEYWith offices in both Naples and Winter Park, Troy Beasley of Beasley & Henley is accustomed to designing elegant spaces in luxurious surroundings. His stylish creations have made him a sought-after designer across the state. Luxe Livings Michael Korb recently caught up with Beasley to talk about his craft. Q: Was there one moment you can look back on that was pivotal to you wanting to be in this field? A: Its one of those things that just crept in on me. I had been working for my father in his floor covering business since I was 14. We worked in and out of fine homes over the years for various affluent clientele. I remember admiring the way certain aspects of each home were put together, from the architectural side as well as from the interior aesthetics. The seed grew from there, until I found myself going back to college for a degree in interior design. Q: Where did you get your training, and how has that shaped the work you do now? A: College preps you, but really jumping into the actual field is where you gain your knowledge and experience. I was fortunate enough to have been hired even before I graduated. From there, its my curiosity and drive that lead me to absorbing everything I could come into contact with that had anything to do with design. I feel like my work is shaped by life experience, and it changes as I continue to grow. Q: How do you approach a project and find inspiration for it?SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 brings elegance to Southwest Florida homes This transitional dining room in Estuary at Grey Oaks features luxurious fabrics and a beautiful wood table.

4 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY Q&AFrom page 2A: The process is rather simple regarding my approach. Clients come to us generally for two reasons: because they have been given our name as a referral, and because they like what they see when they look through our portfolio of work. From there, we set up a face-to-face meeting to see if we connect on a personal and professional level. If everything aligns for both of us, we move forward with a design agreement followed by additional meetings as we proceed with the design concept. Getting to know your client and what they ultimately desire from their project is key. We run through photos and provide a client profile questionnaire that delves into some additional information that I use as a reference throughout the design process. My inspiration comes from the client and their vision, along with my years of design experience. When you get into the architecture of the project, along with the clients needs, the inspiration comes. Q: You obviously work all over, but is there anything special about the Naples market that you find intriguing? A: Naples is a special place. The clientele are fabulous and have been such a pleasure to work with over the years. Their residences are generally one of a few that they own, and they are always open to doing something a little different than what they live with elsewhere. This makes it fun for me as we shape things together as a collaborative team that makes for a hybrid of sorts of what they are used to, while allowing me to add my own twist into the design. Q: Are there any trends youre excited to see becoming reestablished? A: I try not to get too hung up on trends. Its really about my client and what they want in their own space. Having said that, Im pleased to work with some of the newest and latest materials that have made a comeback: wood flooring and wall coverings. The warmth of wood does so much for a space, especially under toe. It allows us to lighten up the walls and contrast materials more than before. This adds interest and personality to each space. Before, the floors were always so light that the walls had to take on a darker appearance in order to provide contrast in the design; now its the opposite, with darker floors and lighter walls. Wall coverings have changed drastically over recent years as large format prints have been brought in and combined with some of the great old standbys, such as grass cloths. The combination of these two trends brings some interesting texture to interior spaces that makes them more visually appealing. Beasley & Henley 2241 Tamiami Trail E., Naples 774-1005; LORI HAMILTON / COURTESY PHOTODESIGNER Q&A Above: Simplicity of design is the main feature of this great room/kitchen area. Textures including rich, touchable wood and glossy counter surfaces blend with natural light to fill the space and keep it warm, clean and inviting. Left: Lightly colored and luxurious to the touch, the fabrics and furnishings in this dining room make it simple and elegant. The glass-encased wine cellar (also visible in the photo above) keeps the dining area separate without closing it off. Below left: Sumptuous fireplace marble, stunning overhead lighting and inviting furniture make this Naples living room the homeowners favorite spot. Below right: Oversized pendant lights anchor this comfortable room outfitted in rich furnishings and touchable fabrics. With part of the room serving as a desk area and the other part as a lounge, it fills both requirements efficiently and luxuriously. IMAGINE. DESIGN.

10 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY NAPLES KENNY / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBLuxe Living EditorThe owners of this impressive house had worked with architect Don Stevenson on their previous place in Royal Harbor. Similarly chic, but smaller, they sold that house for significantly more than they paid for it and upgraded to a tear down on Fifth Street South. Wisely, they called upon Mr. Stevenson again to work his magic. The result: this four-bedroom, five fulland three -bath, 6,172 square feet under air (13,532 total) home that ended up so special that a few months after completion someone offered the owners millions more than they had into it. Not surprisingly, they took the money and now keep Mr. Stevenson on speed dial, for whenever their next project pops up. What sets this residence apart are the many smaller details you dont immediately notice and the technical know-how needed to make them all come together so seamlessly. I would say this was one of the most technically challenging homes Ive designed, says. Mr. Stevenson, who is the president and CEO of Don Stevenson Design as well as Lotus Architecture. There is a lot of tech in the structure to make those living spaces work. The award-winning designer began his career in Southern California before finding himself managing an engineering design team for Boeing Aerospace. His team designed portions of the 737, 757, 767, 777 and 747 commercial jets. He also led design teams on such special projects as the space shuttle, the Boeing Business Jet and Air Force 2. But his love of commercial and residential design brought him to Southwest Florida.Above: The owners originally thought they wanted to go in the coastal cottage-style direction, but decided to forgo some of the more traditional elements and wound up with this eclectic waterfront home. Right: The ground-level swimming pool (theres a second pool on the main living level).

Which brings us back to this special home. They asked for the moon, he says with a laugh. They asked for a 13,000-square-foot house on a lot that would fit a 9,000-square-foot house. (Those seats on airplanes suddenly make a lot more sense.) Luckily, much of that space (4,500 square feet of it) is on the first floor, which houses a garage that, thanks to four lifts, can accommodate 10 cars. (The homeowner was a car collector.) In fact, the design has single-car garage doors on each end, allowing you to pull in on one side and drive straight through to the other even with all the other cars already inside. They wanted the ability to park as many cars in there as they could, Mr. Stevenson explains. Also on the first level: a golf simulator room and a storage room for the owners fishing gear. Theres also equipment on that level situated underneath the upper swimming pool. (The house has two pools on separate levels because, of course it does.) Oddly enough, the home was originally planned to be a coastal cottage type thing. You can almost see it in the Indonesianstyle roofline. But toward the end of the project the owners decided not to add in the requisite design details. It just morphed into something a bit more eclectic, Mr. Stevenson says. And its just as interesting on the inside. The homeowners didnt want any two-story ceilings. They wanted to bring the ceiling down and make things cozy. But for a house of this stature, the ceilings also had to be interesting. So Mr. Stevenson worked some magic in the living spaces, creating unique elements that help define rooms and keep noise transfer to a minimum. When I told you this was one of the more technically challenging houses remember, there are concrete floors above, he says. We have to calculate all of that before we even think of anything else. Another unique feature is the layout of the kitchen, pantry and utility area. Its extremely functional in that you can circulate through each of them easily, as the cooking range is itself an island that you can walk behind to gain access to the pantry, etc. Then, when you look back at the island, we have these sliding stone walls that open up so you can see from the pantry to the kitchen through to the living area, Mr. Stevenson says. Its fantastically functional. And well thought out. As is the billiard room on the northern side of the home. Angled to look down the wide canal and give expansive views of the water, it was originally designed to be a main floor master bedroom (and can easily be converted back). The views from the billiard room are even more impressive considering that Mr. Stevenson was tasked with building a roof over the boat, which sits just below that space. (The boat was originally supposed to be a 34-footer, which just barely fit, but the homeowner decided on a 36-footer, forcing Mr. Stevenson to redesign the configuration. Same deal when the homeowner then decided on a 38-footer.) We did a lot of three-dimensional modeling on this one, he says. The entire third floor is the master suite, which partially mimics the billiard room below but that also features a balcony outdoor shower and a hidden terrace with artificial grass and a drainage system so that the homeowner could let the dog out from the bedroom without having to worry about it getting loose. (Theres another hidden puppy terrace on the main floor.) To say the home is one-of-a-kind is accurate. To say we look forward to seeing what that couple asks Mr. Stevenson to build next is even more so. Don Stevenson Design and Lotus Architecture 2950 Tamiami Trail N. 304-3041; FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2017 LUXE LIVING 11 Above and right: The kitchen is made particularly functional thanks to a hidden access to the pantry and utility room.

12 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBLuxe Living EditorLocation. Location. Location. Sometimes you find a place in just the right spot and you know you have to have it. Unfortunately, most of the time, someone else had that same thought years before and has left you with sloppy seconds (aka ugly tile and wallpaper). Still, its the location that counts, and for the new owners of this 4,700-squarefoot Marco Island condo, the location overlooking Hideaway Beach was too good to pass up even if the unit screamed everything that was iffy about the early s. But they knew enough to call Jenny Provost of K2 Design. As the photos suggest, that was a smart move. They knew they wanted something startlingly different from what they purchased, says Ms. Provost. They liked the square footage, and the views are second to none. Ive actually seen sunsets from their place that made me tear up. Its just stunning. So they wanted the condo to be something that could stand up to the power of that view. They were interested in modern and clean, but they wanted it to be warm and they noticed the thread of that running through our projects. Ms. Provost and the K2 Design team employ what she calls tropical mod-MAKEOVERLovely to look at (and live in)Jenny Provost of K2 Design brings a Marco condo beautifully up to date DOUG THOMPSON / COURTESY PHOTOSThe new master suite is capable of standing up to the gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico.

ernism a perfect balance of South Pacific resort with modern, clean lines and a hint of minimalism. So the tiled floors, vinyl covered cabinets, confining partitions and awful wallpaper all had to go. Knowing the redo would take time because of the size of the unit and the wholesale changes involved, the owners bought another condo in the building next door to live in while the work was underway. Another reason for the time it would take: There are serious restrictions on when work can occur in a (condo building, usually May through mid-October), Ms. Provost says. They just shrugged their shoulders and said, Whatever it takes, and we plowed forward. The owners are big sports fans, so there had to be a lot of ways to watch TV. In fact, that large image that looks like a Clyde Butcher photograph is actually bi-folding panels. Photographer Doug Thompson went into the swamp and took that photo. It was then printed on vinyl and wrapped onto the panels that retract to reveal an enormous television. We flipped what was the family room into the dining room and made it so that you can see the whole place, Ms. Provost says. Then we turned the family room into a little media room. We used a lot of mahogany, and we used a stone that is exactly the color of the beach sand outside, she adds. It feels seamless, even though (the beach) is eight floors down. Beautiful from top to bottom, indeed.

Ms. Provost hid it behind a massive photograph of the Everglades. Rigth: Floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining room provide the perfect vantage point to take in sunsets. Because of association restrictions, the renovation took two years, but were clearly worth the wait. In fact, its hard to believe these are the same spaces.

16 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBLuxe Living EditorHave you ever bonded with a couple so much that you asked then to give you a rhinoceros head off the wall behind them? No? Well, you will if you head over to Ed Koehler Designs, which recently opened its first showroom, this one at 851 Fourth Ave. S. Mr. Koehler, who has been an artist for more the 25 years, is well-known for his furniture and sculptures that replicate the best of nature: lamps that look like tree branches or mangrove roots, sea turtle shell wall hangings, sculpted fish that make you think you should be wearing a scuba mask and the aforementioned life-sized rhino head. His work appears in homes and businesses around the globe. Now locals can walk into the showroom and have a look at what area interior designers have been keeping to themselves all these years. Visitors are greeted by sea grape sconces, wall barnacles, massive horseshoe crabs and beautiful paintings by Koehlers wife, Marti, who has a studio in the back of the showroom. Once inside, expect to have your love meter put to the test. Thats how the Koehlers describe the feeling someone gets when they rate something in their mind. We realize you have to really fall in love with something in order to buy it, says Marti. If you get something that rates at least a seven on your love meter, it will somehow work with any other piece you have that also rated at least a seven.All naturalEd Koehler Designs brings art to new Naples showroom o l f n s d t e a d d d o s a For 25 years, Ed Koehler has used nature as his artistic inspiration.

Were not really salespeople, adds Ed. People need to love something at least three-quarters of the way before my charm has any effect whatsoever. And yet the pair is doing very well with a wide range of pieces. Figures in Martis new synchronized swimming series are a hot commodity, whether they be the largescale paintings or small sets made on Venetian plaster with glass beads. They really represent our lives at the moment, she says about the series. Everything looks so poised and polished on the surface, but underneath its a crazy whirlwind just trying to keep things together. Love meter reading: very high. And whether you are searching for a piece of art or furniture, you can rest assured that you are getting quality. Nothing Ed has made has ever come back for repair, says Marti. At this level you have very little room for mistakes, adds Ed. You need fivestar service. Its a precious relationship that we have with our customers. Now, if we could only get him to give us a super deal on that rhino head, our love meter would go off the charts.

They were very close, and she was devastated. Sadly, the grief services she needed were not available locally to help her cope with this shocking loss. She has made at least four attempts at taking her life through overdoses and cutting herself. She has been admitted to the hospital to care for the acute problem, but is released once doctors determine shes not an immediate danger to herself. But its a vicious cycle that keeps repeating. Suicide is completely preventable, and we need services to diagnose the patient so we can make a difference with the right treatment and therapy. No child should die this way. This should not happen on my watch, not on OUR watch. -Emad Salman, M.D., Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida

P55 Chris was born in Napa Valley and, a long time ago, he was transferred from California to Greenwich, CT while working in nancial services. Years later we met in New York, and 16 years ago (November 2000) we were married at the beautiful Auberge du Soleil Relais & Chateaux resort in Napa Valley. While honeymooning in Napa Valley, we discovered a pre-prohibition winery in St. Helena in the Napa Valley that needed a massive dose of TLC. We purchased it and spent the next 16 years restoring the winery and developing V Madrone into what it is today. rf rnfrt rfnr bffr At V Madrone we make all of Pauline & Chris TilleyFounding owners of V Madrone Cellarsour wines to accent the dining experience, not to overpower with higher alcohol level nor to overwhelm with excessive new oak. As a result, our wines are versatile with many cuisines, and chefs are enthusiastic about creating new and exotic pairings. A great example is that we sell approximately 10 to 15 percent of our wines in Japan, and Japanese chefs are constantly amazing us with extraordinary cutting-edge pairings with their innovative cuisine. Other examples from local chefs in Florida, as well as in New York and California, include extraordinary pairings such as black trufe or mole sauce dishes that tantalize our old vine Petite Sirah, Wagyu and bistecca accompanied by our agship estate Cabernet Sauvignon, extraordinary new and traditional variations of fresh sushi and sashimi enjoyed with our Meursault style Chardonnay, and regional and spicy Barbeque, Mexican, Hungarian and Indian specialties that bring out the delicious avors of our 90-yearold vineyard Zinfandel. n rbbfr nrbf Passionately enthusiastic are the words that come to mind! We have four children and two grandchildren, and like most people, we have experienced some of the travails in life that require the highest quality pediatric care. We understand what it means to focus on quality of life for the patients and their families. Our signature moments during our nine years of participation in the Southwest Florida Wine &Food Fest are clearly capped by both seeing these vulnerable children being so lovingly cared for by the wonderful Golisano staff, and then later seeing some of the graduates speak during the wine fest auction about their experiences under Golisanos exemplary care. When you see the before-and-after, life doesnt get much better than this! bf r fr rn Clearly our experiences with the attendees, hospital staff, organizers and trustees have been extraordinary and lifechanging for us over the last nine years, and we have made many, many friends in the process! Much more importantly though is that your hard work and diligent efforts have saved many precious lives and, simultaneously, improved the quality of life of so many patients and their families over the years. We think that you are the gold standard in our country at what you do and hope that the collective efforts of all make this the most successful wine fest to date! Have fun and feel very, very good about what your hard work is doing for your community and your neighbors. You are the best! community and your neighbors. community and your neighbors. 2017 SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WINE & FOOD FEST54
