Health forum focuses on womens changing concernsThe Collier County Medical Society hosts its ninth annual Womens Health Forum from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 4, at St. John the Evangelist Church. Better Health Better Life! will have a variety of speakers, breakout sessions with 24 local physicians and 21 vendor booths specializing in womens health issues. A healthy continental breakfast is included. As women grow older, menopause brings a new learning curve that requires them to relearn how their bodies function and how to manage them. If you dont take it upon yourself to have a healthy lifestyle, youre going to be more miserable, says Dr. Catherine Kowal, a rheumatologist who is chair of the forum and vice president of CCMS. You have to understand how to look at your own body and say, Hey, I have to worry about this and I have to worry about that, she adds.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYThe 40-year press warOn Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016, Donald Trump won the White House in part because the responsible media had given him copious ink, airtime and online coverage in the previous year. They were scrupulous about it, too, as the American system requires of good journalists. They reported what he said and did, what people who supported him or questioned him said or did, and what the consequences were as they discovered consequences. Some of his detractors said the media gave him undue and too much attention. Some of his supporters said the media gave him unfair and too little attention. Reporters gave him a platform because he made so much noise, championed by noisy supporters. When they covered his Twitter grandstanding, for example as they should have he gained a much broader platform on social media. Thats the nature of good reporting. Its what journalists do no ma tter the o utcome, whether they favor or disfavor the subject. All of us are richer, more secure and a lot stronger as a result, including the rubes who denounce responsible media for questioning and probing Mr. Trumps connections with Russian leaders, to name just one example. Such men and women are like after-dark motorists who disdain headlights because they might spot something unpleasant, something they dont want to see on the way to their party: Bridge Out, or Road Closed, or Bombing Range, perhaps. In American life, responsible reporters are headlights. Their detractors seem to believe if nobody lights up the sign or if they simply claim something else entirely the bridge wont be out. Mr. Trumps current assault on responsible media is therefore richly ironic, but its nothing new. His response has almost 45 years of precedence as a strategy that often works. After complaining at an impromptu press conference last week about the dishonest media, Democrats, intelligence officials, criminal leakers, Hillary Clinton, environmentalists and judges, as The New York Times fairly summarized it, he added this: Tomorrow, they will say, Donald Trump rants and raves at the press. Im not ranting and raving. Im just telling you. You know, youre dishonest people. But Im not ranting and raving. I love this. Im having a good time doing it. Such charismatic sophistry hearkens back to President Richard Nixon, who resigned his presidency 43 years ago. Mr. Nixon established a strategic precedent to stiff-arm journalists questioning his words and actions: he and his White House officials introduced the media as a term for the first time, called them biased liars, and said they represented a small elite who knew or cared nothing about the American people. An elegant offensive strategy, it failed for Mr. Nixon after The Washington Post finally exposed the criminal behaviors of his White House. But it was effectively employed later by Presidents Reagan, Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Those leaders all tried to shout down or bully reporters, scare them, cut off their access or avoid them (in the case of White House reporters). They also put on showy television events both carefully scripted and closely controlled, aimed at shaping the news the way they wanted it to appear, not necessarily the way it happened. In a response three years ago that probably didnt change much, 38 news organizations beginning with the Society of Professional Journalists complained in a formal letter to President Obama that they were being mistreated and by extension, Americans who preferred to know what really happened rather than what the president wanted them to think happened, were being mistreated. Reporters were blackballed, given interviews after deadlines had passed, and cut off from access to government experts such as those in the Environmental Protection Agency who could talk about real problems with knowledge and data. Meanwhile, Mr. Obama quickly became a skilled navigator of social media. While Ronald Reagans public relations experts learned to stage seemingly natural television scenes of the president appearing with cheering people surrounded by American flags and no reporters about to ask uncomfortable questions President Obamas spinners helped him bypass responsible journalists entirely to reach people with tweets, online videos and Facebook posts. That history, widely reported in such journals as The Atlantic, suggests Mr. Trumps response to ethical and objective scrutiny from veteran reporters is entirely predictable. If the strategy of politicians hasnt changed including state and local politicians who sometimes ignore responsible media, as their response to this weeks lead story on Floridas 2017 legislative session suggests the way journalists cover elected or appointed leaders has changed with the values of society. If reporters knew about adulterous affairs conducted by such presidents as Franklin Roosevelt, Eisenhower or Kennedy, for example (and they did), they failed to report it. Powerful media champions such as the late Ben Bradlee, the celebrated, longtime editor of The Washington Post who directed reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward when they exposed the criminal behavior of the Nixon White House, used to travel out of Washington into the Virginia hills on weekends to party with the Kennedys, Bobby and John F., among others. Such behavior now would be anathema for the responsible media, discrediting the individuals and their outlets immediately, as it should. Reporters may be friendly, but they are friends of no politicians unless theyre not doing the job correctly. That traditional and very necessary relationship between the powerful and the reportorial may be made more obvious by the current president, even if its nothing new. t s w C a b roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Turn your visions of coastal home interiors into a custom reality at Matter Brothers Furniture and Design Service with the worlds #1 slip cover company, Four Seasons!7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft.

Anthony and Matilda Joslyn Gage explain the object of their undertaking. Their purpose, they said, was to leave behind an arsenal of facts for those beginning to educate themselves about the inception and progress of their long agitation to secure womens rights. This was for the benefit of the movements future leaders. The first book in the series of six begins in the 1840s with the agitations nascent stirrings. Four decades had already passed in the interval between the doing and remembering. Stanton and her collaborators felt a sense of urgency. Some who could best recount this history had already succumbed to St. Peters call, their opportunity missed to contribute. The would-be authors were getting long in the tooth. Yet no one was more faithful or better qualified to preserve this history than those engaged in its making. Undertaking the task was essential if the books purposes were to be fulfilled. Their ambition to record their story was daunting, complicated by the broad context of the movement itself. The full emancipation of women was its ultimate cause. It was inclusive of but not limited to the achievement of political rights. That made things exceedingly more complicated. It struck at the core of womens oppression. Gender inequality was deeply ingrained in the social, religious and cultural mores of the country. Woman was simply not the spiritual, moral or intellectual equal of man. This tenet expressed itself in an infinite number of ways. To challenge the presumption was to invite an avalanche of scorn, hate and ridicule. Public condescension, shaming and bullying were par for the course. A newspaper editorial in 1848 put it bluntly: A woman is a nobody. A wife is everything. A pretty girl is equal to ten thousand men, and a mother is, next to God, all powerful ladies therefore are resolved to maintain their rights as Wives, Belles, Virgins, and Mothers, and not as women. Role assignment of the ladies was systemic and inviolable. Surmising the difficulties ahead, Stanton and her colleagues saw the buzz saw awaiting them. None of the attitudes and beliefs cementing womens inequality could be challenged without challenging them all. But they were determined as well as pragmatic. They believed, in their century, womens suffrage to be the highest priority. It was the gateway through which women could press their future demands. Though prevailing in their lifetime might not be possible, victory was inevitable. The history must be preserved and told, no matter how long the doing or the telling required. Stanton and her colleagues published the first volume of this history in 1881. Five more volumes and another 40 years passed before womens suffrage became a reality in 1921. The sixth and final volume of The History of Woman Suffrage was completed by Ida Husted Harper and published in 1922. Had they listened to the naysayers, Stanton, Anthony and Gage might never have undertaken their task. Dissenting voices within their own ranks counseled, It is too early to write the history of this movement; wait until our object is attained; the actors themselves cannot write an impartial history; they have their discords, divisions, personal hostilities, that unfit them for the work. But the objections did not deter Stanton, Anthony and Gage. They took them as evidence of the growing self-assertion and individualism in woman. Now, more than 135 years later, the arsenal of facts provided by The History of Womans Suffrage are just as purposeful as Stanton, Anthony and Gage imagined one day they would be. Last month, The Womens March on Washington inspired the largest single day of demonstrations in American history. Naysayers piled on afterward with condescending and critical commentary about the march as well as the marchers. It was a dj vu moment, reminiscent of the 19th century. Women and men who did not participate in the march demeaned the women and men who did. The march was a useless and an ineffectual protest. It focused on the wrong issues. It was a mass example of identity politics. The pink pussy hats and the nasty woman moniker, symbols of resistance, were offensive, insulting and stupid. The march was illogical. It protested injustices to women that have not yet occurred. It was a counterfeit protest by people paid to show up. Women should listen more and talk less. What war on women? It recalled another story from The History of Womans Suffrage. In 1913, Alice Paul and the National American Woman Suffrage Association led 5,000 suffragettes up Pennsylvania Avenue. marchers suffered verbal and physical assaults along the way and thereafter. But still, they marched. The parade was huge for its time. It is now credited by historians for fueling the suffrage movements sprint to the finish line. Despite everything, the women persisted and achieved their goal. It is the history lesson Stanton, Anthony and Gage thought never too late for the learning. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

The commentariat shuddered at the effrontery of it, and some worried that the foundations of the separation of powers had been shaken. Trumps slam of Judge James Robart was undeniably crude and ill considered, but it wasnt a threat to our republic. In fact, it is a symptom of our distorted and overly sanctified view of the judiciary that a criticism of a judge with a lifetime appointment is greeted with such pearl clutching. It is entirely appropriate that the political branches have their own view of the law and the Constitution, and robustly contest and even deny the legitimacy of court decisions that they consider erroneous. President Trump will have to go considerably further to come close to Andrew Jackson supposedly saying of a Supreme Court decision protecting the Cherokee Indians in Georgia, John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it. Or to match the wars waged on uncongenial Supreme Court decisions by Franklin D. Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Lincolns opposition to the Dred Scott decision redounds to his great credit. To say that Republicans werent deferential to the ruling is an understatement for the ages. They alleged a vast conspiracy of Chief Justice Roger Taney and top Democrats to commit offenses comparable to the worst villainies of recorded history, in the words of one historian. Everyone would soon enough recognize Dred Scott as a disgrace. At the time, though, supporters of the decision considered it a means to peacefully settle a question tearing the country apart. For his part, Stephen Douglas made an argument that was simple and entirely familiar today: Shut up, the Supreme Court justices have spoken. Lincoln allowed that Dred Scott applied to the particular parties to the case; he refused, though, to accept it as a political rule. This wasnt Lincoln venting during an idle moment in his bathrobe. He devoted a portion of his first inaugural to developing his argument, and he governed as if the Dred Scott decision didnt exist. Its an odd disconnect that Lincoln is justly considered perhaps the greatest statesman in American history, yet his rejection of judicial supremacy that was so central to his view of our system is roundly ignored. It is certainly true that presidents defying the court willy-nilly would be a formula for chaos. But you see a Lincolnian political resistance to the court in, for instance, the pro-life movement that wont rest until Roe v. Wade is overturned. The determined opposition to Citizens United is another example, from the left. The fundamental point is that it is not just the executive or Congress that can abuse its power and overstep its bounds. The courts can, too, and no one is obligated to meekly accept their decisions. If the courts in the end throw out the order, despite the black-and-white letter of the law giving him the authority to block aliens in the interest of national security, it will be a usurpatory act. In that scenario, the courts will have done more violence to our constitutional system than a foolish Trump tweet ever could.

She moved to the Paradise Coast in 1998 after serving more than two decades as a federal Special Agent, conducting criminal investigations primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. This work involved technical presentations made for the U.S. Attorney, who would decide to prosecute after reviewing submitted proof of committed crimes. Ms. Ross official career writing was formulaic and expository; concentration on criminal motivation was most often left to defense attorneys. Once retired, though, she could step away from the rigid style and precision of facts in order to create literary fiction. There had been plenty of inspiration from real life people and global situations encountered while wearing the badge. Over the years, a novel fomented, giving her an opportunity to explore why and how human fallibility intervenes in family, business and political affairs. It took about three years to self-publish Undue Influence (you can find a copy through www. jamierossthewriter.com).

Mentor: My mothers rst cousin, a hematologist at National Institutes of Health. He encouraged me to chase my dreams. Once, after a contentious discussion at home right after college about my decision to leave Ohio and live in New York City, Dr. Jim wordlessly slipped me a copy of The Village Voice. I couldnt have received a more timely gift, or a better crafted green light for launching my adult life. Where did you grow up? West of Cleveland, in Lorain, Ohio, when mill life was strong, where the city ooded a eld in winter for ice skating and where shermen caught Lake Erie perch in summer for Friday sh fries in church halls. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? That seemingly far-off goal frequently shifted, especially after the mail-order Encyclopedia Britannica arrived. First job: With our parents consent and their suppressed sense of twisted humor, at age 9 I became the valued assistant to my 10-year-old buddy who had a Sunday paper route. Not just any paper route. A heavy, many-section Cleveland Plain Dealer route of 103 houses that ringed our suburban neighborhood. For $8 each month, I got to pull an overloaded wagon and run a paper to any house that had a barking dog or an extra-long driveway. My buddy, however, was stuck collecting the newspaper bills. I shirked at doing the math. When did you rst come to Southwest Florida? I visited family here for the rst time in the 1970s. When I retired, Naples presented itself as a pristine, safe haven for me as a single mom with a teenaged daughter. Guilty pleasure: Thats an oxymoron for most, but not for me. I truly enjoy a ne meal that looks as good as it tastes, presented in beautiful surroundings. Next vacation destination: Ive got my sights set on a quick trip to Scottsdale, Ariz., where a gifted composer/director will premiere his new opera of the American West, Riders of the Purple Sage. Skill or talent you wish you had: Math. A quick grasp of anything mathematical would be a miracle. Advice for someone just starting in your line of work: Like anything, its essential to break a process into tiny steps, and take them one at a time. Suddenly, you look up and nd yourself at your destination. The entire time youve been righteously busy, passing time, watching your feet. Advice for your kids/grandkids: Never allow yourself to be bored. That is an unforgivable and wasteful self-indulgence. Best thing about kids/grandkids: Young people see the world with fresh eyes. We are blessed and better because of that. Trait you most admire in your friends: I soak up needed lessons given by my friends many acts of patience, resilience, understanding and forgiveness. Favorite app on your smartphone or tablet: Uber. What a great name. Something thats been on your mind: Oh, the usual: mortality (mine) and quality of life for the ones closest to me. Must-see place to take rst-time visitors: Barefoot Beach, for bringing postcard propaganda to life and proving it to be TRUE. Something that makes you laugh: Reminiscing with lifelong friends. All-time favorite movie: Paris, Je tAime. Confession: I do own an old DVD for screening whenever the romantic travel bug bites. Something you wish could go back to the way it once was: I would give modern children another eras freedom to play and explore on their own. Pet peeve: Unabashedly fearful people. Unlike the warning on the sign at the playground near where I live, I think it really is OK to run in the park. Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: Most writers will tell you this. I need alone time. What are you most proud of? I am out-of-bounds proud of my daughter, an admirable and wonderful person in all respects. Our relationship is the inspiration for my next book. Something the Paradise Coast really needs: Cultural diversity. Naples is a cocoon, awaiting its more colorful stage of development. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: Things move slowly and people are respectful because one never knows what a stranger might be going through. You cross a parking lot at your own speed. Or return a phone call today. Or maybe tomorrow. Talking points with Jamie Ross

So it is appropriate that ghost orchid-gami make an appearance at the 44th annual Naples Orchid Society Show & Sale taking place Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 25-26, at the Garden. When the North American Orchid Conservation Center of the Smithsonian Institution, along with the United States Botanic Garden, developed orchid-gami (folded paper artwork) of 25 native U.S. orchids, the funds werent available to publish all of them. So the Naples Orchid Society decided to help. In the U.S., the elusive ghost orchid occurs only in Florida. The NOS saw that ghost orchid-gami would be a fun and beautiful tool to help educate the public about the areas wild orchids. The society, along with Friends of the Fakahatchee and the Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society, donated money to get the metal die made and help in printing costs for this exquisite paper orchid. Fifteen thousand copies of this special orchid-gami were printed, some of which will be available for purchase at the NOS Show & Sale. Ghost orchidgami demonstrations will be conducted throughout the event, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Many kinds of prize-winning orchids will be on display and for sale along with orchid supplies. Show vendors include: Florida SunCoast Orchids, Krull-Smith Orchids, Macs Orchids, Odoms Orchids, OFE InternationalOrchid Supplies and Bactra Orchid Benches. Admission to the show is free for members of NOS and Naples Botanical Garden; others pay regular garden admission.

House and Senate for debate, and finally to Gov. Scotts desk for his approval or veto. We checked in with lawmakers who represent us in South Florida and asked them to respond briefly by phone or in writing to questions about where they stand on four major issues they are set to face this year: how to fix our water problem, the rights of gun owners, immigrants in sanctuary cities, medical marijuana, and whom they voted for in the presidential election. We contacted each member of the delegation in Florida Weeklys distribution area a number of times by phone and email, eight senators and 17 house members whose districts cover all or part of Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties on the southwest coast and Palm Beach County on the southeast coast. Many didnt respond to our questions. Here is a brief explanation of our questions followed by what those who did respond, three South Florida senators and five representatives, told us. ` WATER Whats the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? Because of how South Florida was developed over the last century, it faces one of the worlds largest and most complicated engineering problems: Everglades restoration, or restoring the historic flow of clean water north from near Orlando down into Lake Okeechobee and then south through the Everglades into Florida Bay. As it stands, heavy rains force officials to discharge massive amounts of polluted water from the lake to ensure its aging dike doesnt collapse. The water is polluted by phosphorus and nitrogen from urban development, agriculture, leaky septic systems and other sources north of the lake. And instead of following south as it did historically, through land now used mostly to farm sugar, it is discharged to the west and east down the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers, causing algal blooms that harm the environment and the economy in coastal communities. In Gov. Scotts $83.5 billion proposed budget for 2017-18, he set aside $225 million to complete water storage reservoirs that are crucial for Everglades restoration, allowing water to be contained and cleaned. But a 2015 University of Florida Water Institute study found that an enormous amount of storage beyond what all current plans call for including the official Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) is needed to the north, south, east and west of Lake Okeechobee to fix our water problem. Environmental groups, Sen. Joe Negron, a District 25 Republican, and others support a $2.4 billion plan to buy about 60,000 acres of land south of Lake Okeechobee. The proposed bills on this project (Senate Bill 10 / House Bill 761) would be paid for in part with up to $1.2 billion in Florida Forever bonds, Amendment 1 money that voters approved for environmental needs, and federal dollars. That could provide a large chunk of the necessary storage to the south. Sugar companies and their supporters have resisted selling the land, saying it will cost jobs in already struggling communities and pointing out that it will not on its own end the polluted discharges. GUNS Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? Sen. Greg Steube has proposed a series of bills that would allow gun owners under concealed carry rules to bring their weapons to college and university campuses, inside courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative and government meetings, and into career centers. He also proposed new rules (SB 610) that could make businesses that ban guns on their property liable if there is a shooting because people wouldnt be able to fire back. Other proposals (SB 254 / HB 167) seek to ban assault weapons. SANCTUARY CITIES Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? Immigration policy became a touchstone of the 2016 presidential campaigns. Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach and Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha have proposed bills (SB 786 / HB 697) that would impose financial and other penalties on local governments and agencies that adopt policies that dont fully comply with federal immigration rules. MARIJUANA How should Amendment 2 be implemented? In November, voters approved Amendment 2, making medical marijuana legal for a wider array of conditions in Florida. Now lawmakers have the task of implementing it, including marijuana production and distribution in Florida. That could affect how businesses obtain licenses to enter a profitable new industry in the state, or not. The Florida Medical Marijuana Act (SB 614) could further open up the marijuana industry here while a competing proposal (SB 406) seeks to limit it, at least at first. IN ADDITION What is your single most important goal for the session? Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? SEN. BOBBY POWELL DDISTRICT 30What is the best way to clean up our water? The best way to clean up the water is by making sure that we invest resources into what we also have right now, the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, and also place funding in areas where we can properly clean and restore water so that when it does come out weve established and used the best processes to make sure that water is as clean as it can be. Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? I think right now everythings on the table. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? Perhaps we allow local municipalities their own rules to say where guns can and cannot go. And I also believe we probably shouldnt have guns in government buildings or government functions in public places. At this point I dont know of any legislation that I would be 100 percent supportive of, but that could change. Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? No. If theres a mass shooting and someone else grabs a gun and theyre shooting too, if the police come how do they identify the original offending party? Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? No I just believe in doing whats right and I dont think thats the best way to handle immigration issues. However, I think its more of a federal issue. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? It depends. Ill see that early in the process and right now as a member of the Health Policy Committee, were formulating the process so I cant delve too deep into it because its progressive, its changing. What is your single most important goal for the session? As you know, national and state politics right now has become hectic and it is incumbent upon those of us in leadership to lead by example and to serve our constituents in a manner that provides security, safety, and confidence to them. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? I made sure that I supported the Democratic candidate in every race. Do you have anything else to add? Its important to note that this month is Black History Month and its a date that many people take a chance to look at the state politics and know the history One of the most important bills weve been able to move so far is our direct file legislation, which is a bill that will curb the number of juveniles who are processed in the adult prison system. Florida has been a leader in the nation in terms of sending youth to adult prison and were working diligently in the state Senate and the state House to change that. SEN. GREG STEUBE RDISTRICT 23What is the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? Im open to looking at all the plans and seeing whats best for the state of Florida and moving forward Personally I dont know where Im at on that specific issue because Im not in a position that Im going to be voting or having an option to see that bill until it gets to the floor. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? I dont support gun control laws; I support law-abiding citizens (having) the ability to carry firearms more freedom to carry firearms where they feel appropriate if they have a license. Why do you believe guns should be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? Sen. Steube said people should be able to defend themselves instead of relying on law enforcement to come. Obviously, they cant be everywhere. He pointed out guns are already allowed in theaters unless that private business restricts it, and cited a statistic that concealed-carry license holders are 10 times less likely to commit a crime with their weapon than a law enforcement officer. If were 10 times less likely to commit a crime than law enforcement, why is there any reason youre going to prohibit my ability to defend myself and my family? Sen. Steube said. He attributed the figure to Dr. John R. Lott, an economist, expert on guns and crime, and Fox News columnist. Dr. Lott said that figure is true in Texas, but that the gap in Florida is somewhat smaller. Both groups committed crimes with their guns at exceedingly low rates, according to Dr. Lotts research for his Crime Prevention Research Center. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? I do support Sen. Beans bill, yes. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? I believe the licenses shouldnt be limited in number and the free market should dictate who could obtain and who should go in business that produces that product. We need to have a strong regulatory scheme in place that law enforcement supports and thats why Ive cosponsored Sen. (Jeff) Brandess bill (SB 614, Florida Medical Marijuana Act). What is your single most important goal for the session? To make sure that our laws allow people more freedom whether thats in their business or their Second Amendment rights, more freedom and more liberty, not the government telling them what they can do with their guns and their business. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Donald Trump, our president. I was a big public supporter for Trump. SEN. KATHLEEN PASSIDOMO RDISTRICT 28What is the best way to clean up our water? The issue is very complicated and there is no magic bullet. Theres no simple answer. First of all, I think that we need to go back and look at what the scientists say. And the most recent study that Ive read that I feel is the most compelling is the University of Florida 2015 Water Institute study. I take the same position that they are SESSIONFrom page 1SEE SESSION, A12 A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY

taking and that is that, No. 1, we need to complete the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan that the legislature and the federal government agreed to many years ago. We also need to update the CERP plan based on new technology and new circumstances, new funding sources and the like. You have to take a long view of the problem because it took 100 years to get us into this mess and its not going to take 10 or 15 years to get out of it, and I think part of the problem is theres a misperception in the public. (That is), if we do one thing, buy U.S. Sugar land, that will solve the problem, but it wont because there are a lot of components to it. Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? I do, because the (2015 UF Water Institute) study indicated that additional property is needed for storage south of the lake. Also, north of the lake. And we need to finish the reservoirs east and west of the lake. Sen. Passidomo pointed out a number of options for obtaining land south of the lake that the report suggests including purchasing them from the sugar industry and/or using land the state already owns. And last but not least, but most importantly my district includes Hendry County, all of the people who rely for their livelihood on farming (sugar cane). Those people in Hendry County need a seat at the table. Their voices need to be heard because while we talk about taking farmland and turning it into water storage we will be affecting the livelihood of several thousand people, and we cant operate in a vacuum, and we need to listen to them to hear their concerns in addition to those of the scientists, environmentalists, and elected officials. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? So my biggest issue is not the issue of gun control. The issue is the state of Florida has been not very proactive, in fact we are at the bottom of the 50 states insofar as how we handle mental health. To date we have put very little funding and very little emphasis on mental health until last year when the Legislature passed Senate Bill 12, which began the process of overhauling our states mental health system. (It provides) a structure and framework for collaboration among agencies and organizations that provide mental health but it didnt put any money into it And that would go a long way to addressing the problem of people with problems carrying weapons and wreaking havoc in our state. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? I have voted for a resolution to that effect, and a bill rather in the House last year. I support all the efforts that we have to require local governments and municipalities to follow the law. And to me if you have a law, no one is above the law, no person, no city and no county. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? I think of my role as legislator in this arena is to listen to all of the testimony and then help (make) the regulations that are in the best interest of our state. That being said, I am troubled by what I see, a perception because I get phone calls from people all the time who actually believe that amendment legalizes marijuana in the state of Florida, and thats not what it did. I bring it to their attention and tell them, (it legalized marijuana for) medical purposes only. Without exception they laugh and say, oh, I have a headache, Im stressed, Im entitled to use it. And frankly that troubles me, whatever intention the drafters of that amendment had. Those people think thats what that amendment did with a wink and a nod. What is your single most important goal for the session? My most important goal for me has always been to represent my constituents well. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? I dont want to answer that The reason I dont want to answer that is I dont want the discussion to be about who I supported in the election. What I want the discussion to be about is, we have a president; hes our president; people who voted for him and people who didnt vote for him should support him and help him to be successful. REP. MICHAEL GRANT RDISTRICT 75What is the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? I havent seen any surveys or documentation that shows that (buying land in the EAA) is actually going to clean up the Lake (Okeechobee). As you know were in a pretty tight budget year, and before I start voting to commit taxpayers dollars to a billion-dollar plus program I want to see some documentation thats actually going to work. (It) might not be the best way to do that; it may be better to make investments north of the Lake so that as it flows south into the Lake that it gets cleaned up. And Id like to find some way of funding that thats not going to have a negative impact on some of the other priorities of the state. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? Thats a pretty broadly worded question. So if by control you mean the effective way to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, then certainly I would support something like that. But if you mean some kind of a restriction on the rights of citizens to carry guns based on their Second Amendment right, that one would be no. Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? Concealed carry is already permitted in the Capitol. Its not permitted on the floor of the House, obviously because we have the Capitol Police there to maintain order, if you will. I dont see if somebody has a concealed carry permit, theyve already gone through background (checks), theyve been licensed and trained to use those guns in general, Id say thats fine, they can bring them where they need to bring them. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? Yes. I would I think that were a nation of laws and a state of laws, and if theres a law on the books, whether you like it or not, youve got to enforce it. I dont think you can have selective enforcement because an individual or town or political jurisdiction thinks theyre more mighty than the federal government. I think that just leads to chaos, because if its immigration today, what will it be tomorrow? How should Amendment 2 be implemented? Medical marijuana has just been on the scene for three or four years. I dont know if we have enough long-term data from other states to implement these laws and say, This is the best way to do it. I guess I would say, lets be a little restrictive going into it and if that proves not to be the best way forward we can always revise it and loosen those restrictions. What is your single most important goal for the session? My overarching goal as a first term freshman is to learn as much as I can about the system so I can make the best decisions I can make for the citizens of the state of Florida. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Thats a little personal. But I will tell you its not Hillary Clinton. REP. DANE EAGLE RDISTRICT 77What is the best way to clean up our water? Everyone wants to see the water clean, especially myself, born and raised down there. The frustration is its not a problem that can be fixed overnight Now were stuck with these Lake (Okeechobee) releases that are hurting our tourism and environment in Southwest Florida. Since the year 2000 Congress enacted an agreement to work on the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). That in my opinion is the best path forward. Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? Rep. Eagle pointed out the state doesnt have the money up front to pay for a proposed plan to buy land south of the Lake for more water storage, so it would need to issue bonds (backed by a voter approved trust fund to buy such land). Hes not convinced that is a good use of taxpayer money and suggested that land buy plan might also divert attention from other important CERP projects. But he added, Do I agree we need to have some storage south of the Lake? I think, yes, its a matter of where we do it and how. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? I dont. Im actually looking at ways to expand our Second Amendment rights. That in my view is the best way to enhance public safety. Rep. Eagle pointed out that concealedcarry permit holders already go through a background check and training course, and that the vast majority are known to handle their guns responsibly. These are your defenders if you will. These are not the people that are committing these crimes. You would be controlling what they would do, not what criminals would do. When you restrict the ability of these concealed permit holders to defend themselves youre just creating more ability for the criminals to wreak havoc. Do you think guns should be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? Yes I do. And again they call these zones gun-free safety zones, which is an oxymoron. They are not free from guns They are free from guns carried by lawabiding citizens. They are quote unquote gun-free zones but obviously, guns were there. They were being carried by the criminals. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? Yes. Im actually co-sponsoring a bill this year that opposes that (sanctuary cities). Its a great concern. Its a concern for our citizens. My job is to ensure my constituents and constituents across Florida are protected, and we cannot guarantee that if we dont know who is coming here from other countries. Im sponsoring a bill that would impose sanctions on illegal immigrants who are here and also decide to commit violent crimes. (For instance, a seconddegree misdemeanor conviction would be increased to a first-degree misdemeanor if that person is an undocumented immigrant). How should Amendment 2 be implemented? Thats everything from growing to dispensing to storage to transportation to tax and regulation. So were at the very early stages of that We did actually legalize Char lottes Web in 2014 (a single strain of marijuana used to alleviate seizures) and with that did start to create some of these regulations. So with that we have a limited number of growers throughout the state and ways to dispense that as well. So well be looking at proposing new amendments within those guidelines. We might expand that because obviously weve expanded the number of people (with access to medical marijuana). So wed have to talk about expanding the growers and dispensaries. But I do think it should be done in a limited matter. It is still illegal federally, and it hasnt been thoroughly studied by the FDA. So instead of opening up the door like states like Colorado have done, we need to take baby steps. What is your single most important goal for the session? I think the budget. Its our only constitutional duty as the legislature in the state of Florida. And thats one of the main reasons I ran for office, to be a responsible steward of the taxpayers dollars. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Donald Trump. REP. MATT CALDWELL RDISTRICT 79What is the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? The easiest way to explain that is to say that every member of the Legislature has already voted to increase storage south of the Lake and they did that by supporting Legacy Florida, the bill we passed last year that funds CERP (the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan), which has southern storage as a piece of it Theres not a conflict really in the Legislature between people who want SESSIONFrom page 10 A12 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY
to restore the Everglades and folks that dont. Everybody unanimously wants to see the Everglades restored. The proposal from the Senate (to buy land south of the Lake, SB 10) is about changing the priority of the projects in the plan. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? The Second Amendment is very clear. Its a personal right to self-defense and the clear outcome of most gun control legislation is to disarm law-abiding citizens, because criminals are going to ignore the law whatever the crime may be. And thats really the paradigm that I view any proposals regarding the Second Amendment rights issues. Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? I think the thing to keep in mind is concealed-carry permits are citizens in Florida over the age of 21 who have submitted to fingerprint and a background check and have been licensed to carry concealed. The other thing to note based on research conducted in the last several years, law enforcement officers are actually more likely to commit a (gun-related) crime than concealed-carry permit holders Theyre both statistically very, very tiny, but that was an amazing statistic that sworn officers are actually more likely to commit a crime than concealedcarry holders. (It) really demonstrates how effective that program (concealedcarry permitting) is. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? The immigration question is more complicated than just a simple statement can cover, but the interest of the Legislature is to see uniform application of the law in Florida, and regardless of what issue it is, local governments should be focused on that mission. Thats the way were going to be most successful in having laws that are enforceable and having a state that is open and welcoming to business and the people. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? The legislature has already authorized both Charlo ttes Web and full THC for terminally ill patients and weve built a system for delivering that. This amendment significantly expands the disease states and thereby the number of patients eligible for medical marijuana so were going to have to evaluate whether the current system weve built can handle that volume. What is your single most important goal for the session? Ive been working on Everglades issues long before I ever ran for office. This will be 13 years now that Ive been a passionate advocate for the Everglades and Im going to continue to focus on that goal and endeavor to work with the senate to make it a reality. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Yeah Evan, come on. Lets just skip that question for today. REP. CARLOS TRUJILLO RDISTRICT 105What is the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? I think the best way to clean up our water is to follow the plan that was set out by the University of Florida study that came out in 2015. We spent as a state hundreds of thousands of dollars to figure out what to do. Theyre the experts. Theyve proposed solutions. We need to put pressure on the federal government to finish building the levees and the dikes around the lakes So I think those are two real solutions that could immediately deliver results. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? In the past Ive voted for campus carry, Ive voted for open carry, and I maintain my position on those two issues Restricting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens is something that I do not support. Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theaters, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? Career centers, I dont see any objection to that. In some of the other hostile forums I think there have to be some safety net mechanisms put in place. (Such as a contentious custody hearing, divorce situation), or some of these more real-life issues that people find themselves in, those are ones Id be much more hesitant toward encouraging people to carry firearms. But I think on all of these you have to review a case by case basis, its hard to just lump them into one category. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? Yes Nobody has a right to circumvent the United States Constitution. The power of immigration is clearly vested in the federal government. Municipalities cant decide which laws to enforce and which to reject. Imagine applying (that) to criminal cases Once we lose the rule of law we lose complete control as a society. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? I think within the strict letter of the law. Now, were trying to make it something that its not. I think its clearly for medical purposes. What is your single most important goal for the session? To pass a balanced budget that reflects the values of Floridians. Its just such a complicated process to figure out where we can be more efficient. My goal is (when the session ends) on May 5, to have a very fair budget that really reflects the value of Floridians. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Donald Trump. REB. BOB ROMMEL RDISTRICT 106 What is the best way to clean up our water? Do you support a plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee in the Everglades Agricultural Area for water storage? Billions of state and federal dollars have already been spent on the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, since it was first put forward in the late 1990s. Notably, CERP includes a comprehensive plan to address all of the Lake O issues both north and south of the lake. I would like to see more discussion and public debate on the plans which are already on the table before we spend billions more on something new which doesnt solve our problem. Do you support new gun control rules and how would they improve public safety? I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. I am also a proud gun owner and have a concealed permit. I do not support new gun control laws, which, in practice, will actually make law abiding citizens less safe by interfering with our constitutional right to defend ourselves from criminal conduct. Instead, we need to be focused on enforcing the existing laws we have on the books. Should guns be allowed in the following places under concealed carry: theatres, courthouses, airport passenger terminals, legislative meetings, on college and university campuses, in government meetings, and in career centers? So long as an individual possesses a lawful concealed permit, I support concealed carry in all of these locations. Its been well-documented that gun-free zones are a lightning rod for criminal conduct because criminals know that the people in gun-free zones are not armed and cannot defend themselves. Do you support legislation that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities in Florida, including by imposing financial penalties? Absolutely. In fact, Ive already signed on to co-sponsor House Bill 697 with Rep. Larry Metz, a bill which aims to end sanctuary cities in Florida once and for all. How should Amendment 2 be implemented? As a general matter, I think we need to regulate marijuana like any other pharmacy drug. With that in mind, some of the provisions I would like to see enacted include, but are not limited to: No grow houses near schools or highuse residential or commercial areas. Should be distributed behind the counter in a pharmacy like other prescription drugs, or with a pharmacist present. Prescription from a medical doctor required. Clear labeling system so consumers know what theyre getting. Should be sold in tamper-proof containers/pill bottles, like any other medication. Edibles must be clearly labeled, with warnings in big bold letters, individually wrapped, and sold behind a counter. What is your single most important goal for the session? After just a few short weeks on the job, Im proud to have introduced landmark legislation in the Florida House that will affect millions of Floridians, on topics as diverse as tort reform, Sunshine Law reform, and legislation to tackle the drug overdose and opioid epidemic, which has so many Floridians and our families in its terrible grasp. In the coming weeks, I expect to introduce several other critical pieces of legislation and am looking forward to working with my colleagues in the Florida House and Florida Senate to ensure passage of these important bills. Which candidate did you vote for in the presidential election? Donald Trump.

Donate them to help bring Special Olympics star to townNaples-based nonprofit Character and Thought Foundation is raising funds to help bring Loretta Claiborne, the most decorated Special Olympics athlete in history, to Southwest Florida to visit to Collier and Lee county schools and communities April 27-29. A world-renowned runner and inspirational speaker, Ms. Claiborne was born in York, Pa., in 1953 with physical and mental special needs. A social worker recognized her talent and introduced her to the Special Olympics in 1971. In addition to many Special Olympics events, Ms. Claiborne also qualified, trained for and ran in the Boston Marathon in 1981, the first Special Olympics athlete to do so. She placed among the top 100 women that year and again in 1982. Since then she has finished more than 25 marathons, including the Pittsburgh Marathon in 1988, where she finished among the top 25 women runners. She was awarded the ESPN ESPY Arthur Ashe Award for Courage in 1996. Her life story has been shared in the Walt Disney Productions movie The Loretta Claiborne Story and in the WorldScapes biography In Her Stride. During her visit to Southwest Florida, she will share her positive message with students, local Special Olympics athletes and the general public. To help pay for her visit, the Character and Thought Foundation is collecting new and gently worn shoes that will in turn be purchased by Funds2Orgs, an Orlando-based organization that helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Funds2Orgs will redistribute the shoes purchased from Character and Thought throughout its network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. The recipients in those countries sell the shoes and use the proceeds to feed, clothe and house their families. One entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school. In addition to helping pay for Ms. Claibornes visit to Southwest Florida, proceeds from the shoe drive will benefit Special Olympics FloridaCollier County. Shoes can be dropped off at the Greater Naples YMCA at 5450 YMCA Road. For more information, call the Character and Thought Foundation at 2506947 or email characterandthoughtinc@ gmail.com. CLAIBORNE

Passengers can book short flights and travel back to the early days of what was considered luxurious commercial air travel. Tours will be offered from 2-5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Feb. 24-26. The Ford Tri-Motor, also called the Tin Goose, was first built by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1920s. EAAs Ford Tri-Motor was constructed in 1929 and has an intriguing history, with roles ranging from service as Cuban airliner to transporting smoke jumpers to fight forest fires. After a thunderstorm wreaked havoc on the airplane in 1973, EAA founder Paul Poberezny purchased the aircraft, which then underwent a 12-year restoration. Since then it has been hangared at the EAA Museums historic Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh, Wis., and only departs to make public appearances and for its touring. EAAs Ford Tri-Motor has also made a celebrity appearance in two major movies: 1960s Family Jewels starring Jerry Lewis and 2009s Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp. The plane can carry up to nine passengers at a time, and every seat has a window. Photo opportunities are guaranteed as the plane flies over Golden Gate and then turns west and passes over Pelican Bay before following the coastline south to the Naples Pier and then heading back to the airport (route can change if wind conditions dictate). Each flight takes about 30 minutes from takeoff to return to the tarmac. Tickets to go up in the Tri-Motor are $70 for adults, $50 for ages 17 and younger if purchased in advance and $75 on site. For tickets or more information, call (877) 952-5395.

DESIGNER HOME DECOR, AT WAREHOUSE DIRECT PRICES! CCSO launches new campaign to discourage distracted drivingDont text. Dont call. Dont email. Dont eat. Dont groom. Dont read. Just drive. Thats it. The Collier County Sheriffs Office has launched a campaign encouraging motorists to avoid distractions while driving, especially cell phone use, in order to pay full attention to the road. Texting, talking, using a map basically anything other than driving is dangerous because it takes your attention away from the road. In 2016, 10 percent of all accidents in Collier County were caused by some form of distracted driving. More than 100 people in the county were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving someone using a cell phone or other electronic device. The agency is using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote the campaign and to provide safety information and tips for motorists. Follow the campaign using the hashtag #ccsojustdrive. CCSO deputies are also distributing window clings with the message Just drive. Thats it during traffic stops and at special events. The clings are also available at CCSO substations, and CCSO Youth Relations Bureau deputies are giving them to Teen Driver Challenge students during the portion of the session that addresses the dangers of aggressive driving. Lighted message boards along local roads are also carrying the Just Drive message. Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55 mph, thats enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded, according to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration. Drivers who text are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash, according to studies by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. Teenagers are among the drivers most impaired by distraction. The top distraction for teens is other passengers, accounting for 15 percent of teen driver accidents, compared to 12 percent caused by texting or talking on a cell phone. CCSO offers these tips to help remind motorists to make all activities secondary to driving: Before you leave the driveway, put on your sunglasses, adjust seats and seat belts and enter an address in the navigation system or review maps or written directions. Depart in plenty of time to make it to your destination. Once you are driving, if you must make a call, use a hands-free device. If something arises that needs your attention and you cant take care of it after your trip, pull over to a safe location and deal with it. Basically, keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel at all times while driving. By just driving, says Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, you are keeping yourself and others on the road at a lower risk for crashes. Just drive. Thats it.

While the rest of the country is still watching out for blizzards and trying to stay indoors, snowbirds and Floridians unite over vintage vehicles. The Boca Raton Concours dElegance which several weeks ago offered one of the most relaxed and least crowded environments of all the premium events in the state showcased a nice mix of everything from muscle cars to one-ofa-kind European prototypes. Dont despair if you missed it the best cars showcased at Boca Raton are often on their test run for the Amelia Island Concours dElegance set for March 12. Amelia Island was recognized in 2016 with the International Historic Motoring Awards Best Motoring Event of the Year. Naples held its Cars on 5th event the same day as the Boca concours. While the Ferrari Club of Naples started this, the event is so popular that it had around 400 cars of all makes and models. And because the REVS Institute at the Collier Collection is a world-class museum only a few miles from downtown, theres always something quite unique on display. This year it includes the 1952 Cunningham C-4R roadster one of two examples ever made. They were built to take on the best of Europe, and it also celebrates South Florida since it was constructed in West Palm Beach. Even the auction companies acknowledge that this is the time to be in Florida. Mecum holds its annual Kissimmee sale over two weekends in January, Barrett-Jackson comes down to West Palm Beach every April and there are plenty of smaller auctions in between those times. But for those who want to see the rarest vehicles cross the block, nothing beats the Amelia Island auction. Its concours week brings in enough surrounding events and international enthusiasts that select companies like RM, Gooding and Bohnams are able to sell some of the worlds most elegant exotics. These multi-million dollar offerings are so rare that these events feel like their own concours. But our car culture is far more than just that. Cars & Coffee events are becoming the new popular destinations, and it seems every city is sprouting its own monthly show. For those who dont have a local one, they are also not hard to start. Enthusiasts can park their cherished wheels usually for free, and it never costs anything to be a spectator. When a Cars & Coffee event is properly put together, it can be one of the best feelings in the car community. This is simply because the whole idea behind it is about being inclusive, without discrimination. A 40-year-old AMC Gremlin rusting through its paint can park next to a brand new six-figure Lamborghini. These may seem like they have nothing in common, but both have proud owners who love their vehicles. And thats the only requirement for a good C&C. We all know that not everybody in the family loves vintage vehicles the way we do. So thats why there are also plenty of events to give other members of the family something to do. For example, the Village of North Palm Beach attracts 150 to 200 cars for its annual Hot Cars & Chili. As the name suggests, there is a chili cook-off for those who dont want to stare at vintage metal. Its car show season in Florida.

Liang Zhao Zhang cleared almost $58,000 in base pay and $162,000 in overtime, and other benefits ran his total income to $2 71,243. He worked at San Franciscos Powell Street station, a hangout for the homeless, who notoriously sullied the station 24/7 (urine, feces and needles, especially), necessitating overtime hours that apparently only Zhang was interested in working. In one stretch during July 2015, he pulled 17-hour days for 2 weeks.Wrong place, wrong timeAn Abbotsford, British Columbia, burglar was successful in his Feb. 7 break-in at a home, but his getaway was thwarted by a snowfall that blocked him in on a roadway. He eventually decided to ask a passerby for help and inadvertently picked out a man (of the citys 140,000 residents) whose house he had just broken into (and who recognized him from reviewing his homes security camera footage). The victim called police, who arrested the man (and reported that it was the second residential break-in that night in which the snowfall had foiled a burglars getaway.) Everyday hazards In Portland, Ore., in January, Ashley Glawe, 17, a committed goth character with tattoos, piercings and earlobe holes (gauges) was, she said, hanging out with Bart, her pet python, when he climbed into one of the lobes. She couldnt get him out, nor could firefighters, but with lubrication, hospital emergency workers did (thus avoiding an inevitable split lobe if Bart had kept squeezing his way through). Iraqi forces taking over an ISIS base in Mosul in January reported finding papers from at least 14 Islamic State fighters who had tried to claim health problems, asking commanders to please excuse them from real combat (and martyrdom). One (a Belgian man) actually brought a note from a doctor back home attesting to his back pain. Five of the 14 were initiated by volunteers from France, a country that endures a perhaps-deserved national reputation for battle-avoidance.Government actionLegislators in Iowa and Florida recently advanced bills giving women who receive legal abortions up to 10 years (or longer, in Iowa) to sue the doctor if the abortion winds up causing them emotional distress. (Doctors in all states are already liable, of course, for actual negligence in their practice.) In the Iowa version (which the Des Moines Register reported would likely face amendments), even a signed consent form by the patient would not immunize the doctor (but might mitigate the amount of damages awarded).Great artGerman art collector Rik Reinking paid the equivalent of about $138,000 in 2008 for a resplendent, complex drawing by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, but it was one created in ink on the skin of (the still-alive) tattoo parlor manager Tim Steiner to be delivered only upon Steiners death, when his skin will be displayed in Reinkings collection. (The deal also requires that, in the meantime, Steiner personally showcase his back at galleries three times a year, and BBC News recently caught his latest appearance.)More things to worry aboutHigher math: The first robots to have survived journeys close to the core of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan (which melted down in a 2011 earthquake) returned a reading of 530 sieverts per hour. (Some scientists label just four sieverts an hour fatal to half the people exposed to it.) Since the robots stopped short of the actual nuclear fuel, and since they only visited one of the three cores, the true danger of Fukushima remains unknown. (On a more optimistic note, scientists said this month they have developed a computer chip that would survive on the surface of Venus for 21 days, eclipsing the old record of two hours long enough to send back meaningful data, including the temperature. The current estimated temperature is 878 degrees Fahrenheit.)Priests gone bad Prominent Tallahassee pastor O. Jermaine Simmons, a community leader who ministers to the homeless and downtrodden, was rescued by police on Jan. 17, naked and hiding behind a fence after making a run for it when the husband of his mistress found the two in bed. The husband, screaming, Im gonna kill him, ran for his handgun, and the mistress summoned police, but by Jan. 30, all involved had declined to press charges. Simmons, married with a son, is highly regarded for good deeds such as running a cold night shelter. The decidedly uncelibate Catholic priest Don Andrea Contin, 48, of Padua, Italy, was accused by three women in December of having as many as 30 different lovers over the years, organizing orgies on church property, visiting a swingers resort in France several times, and making pornographic home videos of his trysts. Contin has not yet been charged with a crime but, said a Catholic official, is finished as a priest. (Bonus: The boxes for his home videos were labeled by the names of Popes.)

Exercise burns calories, of course, but scientists are also looking at how the body burns more energy to stay warm in cold temperatures. Is there a way to get metabolism to ramp up even when its not cold out? Scripps Research Institute Assistant Professor Anutosh Chakraborty is on a mission to answer this question. His past research revealed a new therapeutic target in this battle a protein that actually promotes fat accumulation in animal models by slowing stored energy (fat) breakdown and encouraging weight gain. Now, in a study recently published online in the journal Molecular Metabolism, Mr. Chakraborty and his colleagues at the Scripps institute in Jupiter have shown that deleting the gene for this protein, known as IP6K1, protects animal models from both obesity and diabetes. This protective effect is seen regardless of diet, even at whats known as a thermoneutral temperature (around 86F). This means inhibiting IP6K1 should help animals burn more energy, regardless of outside conditions. In genetically altered animal models that lack IP6K1, we found that deletion dramatically protects these knockout mice from diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance regardless of the temperature in the environment, Mr. Chakraborty said. When we inhibited the enzyme with chemical compounds, the results were similar.Why temperature mattersTemperature is important in the study of obesity because an animal in lower temperatures will rapidly lose weight as it burns more energy to try to maintain core body temperature. Because humans can maintain their body temperatures in a number of ways clothing, for example any pathway that reduces body weight at higher temperatures is a highly encouraging target in human obesity. The new study suggests a future pharmaceutical may be able to target IP6K1 to mimic the energy burning seen at relatively lower temperatures.If we delete IP6K1, the animals gain less body weight because they simply expend more energy regardless of temperature. Thats important because blocking weight gain by enhancing energy expenditure in a thermoneutral environment is harder and thus, targeting IP6K1 is expected to be successful in ameliorating obesity in humans, said Mr. Chakraborty.If youre developing an anti-obesity drug based on inhibiting IP6K1, our new findings shows that there are potentially very few restrictions for its use a subject would lose weight even on a high-fat diet, and nobody would have to sit in a refrigerator to make it work, he added. The first author of the study, Global IP6K1 deletion enhances temperature modulated energy expenditure which reduces carbohydrate and fat induced weight gain, is Qingzhang Zhu. Other authors are Sarbani Ghoshal, at Scripps at the time of the study, now at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and Richa Tyagi of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.This work is supported by the National Institutes of Health and the state of Florida.

Unfortunately, even the luckiest among us are likely to reach a point where skincare and cosmetics just arent enough to hide the visible signs of aging anymore. There are several signs, both physical and emotional, that can tell you when it may be time to take more dramatic measures to look as good as you feel. First, there are obvious physical signs. Can you grab the loose skin at the sides of your face? No non-surgical treatment can get rid of loose or sagging skin, but a facelift can restore your face to its natural, smooth contours. Maybe youre noticing sagging around your eyes or your mouth, which a facelift alone wont address. For an overall harmonious rejuvenation of the face, we recommend combining a facelift with an eyelid tuck, an endoscopic brow lift or a cheek enhancement. Often, facelift keep their results looking fresh and natural. Then, there are the emotional signs. How do you feel about your face? Does it give you pride and looking critically into the mirror? If you wear high-collared tops to hide your neck or you shy away from being photographed, you deserve to live better. Your mental well-being is as important as your physical health, and a facelift can restore more than just your youthful appearance it can also give you a greater sense of control over your body and life, which means greater peace of mind for you. browsing the web for information about facelifts (perhaps even while youre supposed to be doing something else?)

One purpose of the expo is to arm patients with the newest information about topics that concern them so they can ask their doctors pertinent questions. Physicians often dont have the time during a routine appointment to overview all of the topics that are relevant to their patient, Dr. Kowal says. When that patient comes in with a list of concerns and questions, however, its easier to address them and create a plan of action. Cardiovascular disease and cancer are of particular concern for women of a particular age, she continues, but the risk can be managed with a healthy lifestyle and intervention when necessary. Musculoskeletal concerns including osteoporosis affect women more than men, with the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases claiming that 68 percent of the 44 million Americans at risk for low bone density are women. Half of women over the age of 50 are likely to have an osteoporosis-related fracture, whereas only one in four men have the same risk. You have to take control of things you can change, she said.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy husbands allergies to our dogs were mild until last year. Now he has developed asthma and has a twice-daily routine of medication and an inhaler. Allergies. Theyre the bane of people who love pets but develop a runny nose, itchy throat and watery eyes in their presence or worse, coughing, wheezing and difficulty breathing. Its one thing to know from childhood that youre allergic to dogs, cats or other animals, but when allergies develop later in life, after youve built a relationship with members of the animal kingdom, its hard to give them up. The good news is that in many cases, you dont have to. Medication and environmental changes can help you and your pet live comfortably together. Here are some ways to keep allergy symptoms at bay. Bathe your pet frequently. Its not fur or hair that causes allergies, but saliva, urine and dander (microscopic dead skin cells). These substances contain proteins that cause allergic reactions, and frequent bathing helps to remove them from fur. Our dogs are bathed weekly, and it helps. Some cats take well to baths, believe it or not, but if yours doesnt, at least wipe him down with a damp cloth daily. Shower, wash your hair and change your clothes after roughhousing with your dog or cuddling your cat. Keep pets off the bed or out of the bedroom entirely. Reducing the presence of allergens in your sleeping area will help to ensure a good nights rest. Instead, enjoy your pets presence while youre both awake. Clean often. Use HEPA air purifiers and filtering products. Use a double or microfilter bag in your vacuum. Have a family member wipe down the inside of your car after your pet has been in it, or take it to the car wash. Redecorate. If possible, replace carpeting with hard flooring such as wood or tile. Limit floor coverings to machine-washable throw rugs (and use hot water on them). If you must have carpet, choose one with a low pile, and steam-clean it often. Steam-clean furniture as well. Declutter y our home. Avoid being with your pet in small, enclosed areas such as veterinary exam rooms. Veterinarian Kathryn Primm (who is herself allergic to pets) has some clients with allergies who wait in the lobby or outdoors while their pets are being examined. We have alerts on their charts; client allergic to dogs, she says. Consider the type and size of pet. Its just common sense that a small dog produces less allergens than a big one, but did you know that female cats produce less allergens than males? If you are adding a pet to your family, these are factors to consider. Be aware that theres no such thing as a hypoallergenic pet. Some animals produce less allergens than others, but it varies by individual. You cant assume that just because a pet has a certain type of coat or is a certain breed that you wont react to him. Consult a board-certified allergist. In the bad old days, allergists used to recommend getting rid of pets, but now most of them recognize the importance of the human-animal bond and will help you develop a treatment plan to manage your symptoms. For many people, immunotherapy (allergy shots) is an effective long-term treatment. They helped Elizabeth Tobey, who as a young child was so allergic she couldnt have pets. I had a series of allergy shots as a kid, and over time have built up some tolerance through exposure, she says. Pets of the Week>> Akuma is a 3-year-old tuxedo with the best personality.

THE DIVA DIARIESWhen he cares enough to give the very best its AppleAre diamonds really a girls best friend? Or could electronic gadgets be even better best friends than sparkly baubles? Valentines Day has come and gone and I am the happy recipient of a new Apple Watch. On that magical day of hearts, I noticed that Facebook and Instagram were filled with photos of all the pretty things my girlfriends had received from their Valentines longstemmed red roses, Norman Love Chocolates, and, of course, bling in the form necklaces, bracelets and earrings. So, I posted a picture of my Apple Watch which I love. Just as I love my husband and his penchant for the latest and greatest in electronics. Back when we were courting a dozen years ago, our first gift-giving occasion my birthday came along a few months into the relationship. Todd asked me what Id like and I simply said, Something pretty. Todd told me that his version of pretty and my version were likely two different things. And indeed, he loves the latest and greatest in smart TVs, smart phones and smart cars. On that first birthday together, I suggested that I might like a pretty necklace he told me that my computer was outdated and that I might be better off with a pretty laptop. Nevertheless, he did get me a pretty necklace, but it was a little begrudgingly, Im glad you like it, he said, but Ive been researching some really cool cameras with some very impressive megapixels that I think you could really use. And I hate to say that the necklace got caught on my sweater and sadly broke. So, every Christmas, birthday, anniversary or Valentines Day, when I open up a box and see that sturdy Apple logo, I know that Todd cares enough to give the very best (and trust me, he always throws in a sweetly mushy card and some candies in there, too). My new Apple Watch is actually not just functional it happens to also be very pretty. Im still not completely sure how it works, but when I answered the phone on it the other day and started talking into my wrist, I knew it was definitely cooler than a diamond tennis bracelet or some dangly earbobs. It even takes photos, tracks my heart rate and receives text messages. And Ive found that I can switch out the wristband for some sparklier ones so it turns out that technology goes with everything fancy that. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Obviously the focus is to deliver quality care all the time, while delivering a positive patient experience and being financially prudent, said Mr. Lowe, who has led the organization since December 2014. There are dayto-day challenges in everything we do, but its about making sure we can meet the demands of the community and our patients. The health-care system consists of two hospitals: Physicians RegionalPine Ridge and Physicians RegionalCollier Boulevard, a multi-specialty physician group with more than 300 doctors and walk-in clinics on Marco Island, in the Crossroads Plaza off Pine Ridge Road and at its Pine Ridge Road main campus. An East Naples clinic is slated to open in April off Thomasson Drive. Mr. Lowe cites Southwest Floridas seasonality, with its fluctuating demand for services and occasional tourist-season strains on capacity, as one challenge. Im sure were not unique, especially right now, but Southwest Florida is a constantly growing environment, he said. As we continue to grow, we (Physicians Regional) need to continue to expand and grow with our existing services. He said another element of the industrys dynamism is the shift from a fee-forservice model, where insurers pay medical practitioners for services delivered, to a value-based model, where payments NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 | B1WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BUSINESS & REAL ESTATESEE LOWE, B7 LOWE BY NANCI THEORETFlorida Weekly CorrespondentMaria Aguilar was 10 years old when men in a green Mustang pointed a gun at her father on the streets of Ciudad Jurez in Mexico. I almost lost him, she recalled. Thankfully they didnt do anything but take his wallet. Ironically, the Aguilars were visiting the city to finalize immigration documents for a move to the United States, and the incident helped Ms. Aguilar understand why her father was determined to bring his family to America. He wanted a better life for my mom, my siblings and me, she said. College was always part of that better life for Ms. Aguilar, the eldest child. Not going to college was never an option, she said. My father wants us to do what he and my mom could never do: Live a stable financial life without worries and be successful by using our skills and knowledge. For Ms. Aguilar and many students, financing post-secondary education looms as a potential barrier. She discovered she could afford tuition, room and board and books at Florida Gulf Coast University after completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Ms. Aguilar qualified for a full Pell Grant ($5,815 during the 2016-17 school year), which in turn made her eligible for $15,000 in scholarships from The Immokalee Foundation and other organizations. Sadly, my dad doesnt make as much as he would like, she said.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY LESAGE distributing more than $150 billion to 13 million students working on college degrees or technical certifications. FAFSA determines a students eligibility for federal grants, work study money and loans; information in the application is also used by schools and organizations to award state-funded and private scholarships, as well as additional financial aid. FAFSA isnt just for low-income students or those with high grade point averages, said Tessa LeSage, who as director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation oversees the FutureMakers Coalition, a regional network dedicated to increasing the number of residents with college degrees, certifications and high-quality credentials. Every high school senior benefits from completing FAFSA, she said. Its a gateway to scholarships from schools and private organizations. Research shows a correlation between FAFSA completion and college enrollment: Students accepted into four-year programs are more likely to enroll if they had completed the FAFSA. Junette Desrosier fretted about paying for college. My mom made a big thing about college, telling me after high school this is what you have to do, said the sophomore at Florida SouthWestern State College. Honestly, I didnt know how I was going to pay for it. She learned of FAFSA from Audrey Moss, a guidance counselor at Immokalee High School. Ms. Moss and the other counselors made a big deal about FAFSA, telling us the government would help us pay for school, said Ms. Desrosier. She made us apply because she wanted us to go out there, work hard and succeed. She said there was no excuse for not applying. According to College Board, a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve access to higher education, the annual average cost of tuition nationally at an in-state public college is $9,650 for the current school year. Room and board adds another $10,440. The agency also notes that 70 percent of full-time undergraduate students received grants during the 2011-12 school year, the most current figure available. The organizations website allows students to compute their expected expenses based on specific schools and degree or certification programs. It also provides a list of affordable four-year schools, the cost of attending and the average salary of graduates.FAFSA first!While Ms. Aguilar and Ms. Desrosier learned about FAFSA from teachers and mentors, Ms. LeSage said theres a large number of Southwest Florida students who know little or nothing about it. In Florida alone, high school students left behind more than $100 million in unclaimed Pell Grants. Locally, there was an additional $9 million available to Southwest Florida students in 2013, according to the Florida College Access Network. Pell Grants typically dont have to be repaid and cover up to 12 semesters of college. Theres all this money out there for college, however, students and parents dont know about FAFSA or dont think theyll qualify, said Ms. LeSage. In October, the FutureMakers Coalition launched its FAFSA first! campaign to educate high school students and their parents and supplement schools outreach with a toolkit of informational handouts and materials. Its goal is to increase FAFSA completion in Southwest Florida currently averaging 35.3 percent by 5 percent this school year. As of Jan. 20, 27 percent of Southwest Florida high school seniors have successfully completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, Ms. LeSage and the foundation reported. The data, released by Florida College Access Network, which serves as the data partner for FAFSA first!, shows that 3,081 out of 11,415 12th graders throughout the regions five school districts have completed their FAFSA applications. Collier County Public Schools has the highest district completion rate in Southwest Florida at 31 percent. Following that are Lee County School District at 26.9 percent; Charlotte County Public Schools, 22.8 percent; Glades County School District, 24.1 percent; and Hendry County District Schools, 21.4 percent. New FAFSA guidelines for the 2017-18 school year pushed up the enrollment period by three months, allowing students to apply in October, and use information from completed 2015 tax returns. Previously, FAFSA wasnt available until Jan. 1 and required financial information from the most recent tax year. These changes gave us the opportunity to get students thinking about FAFSA and post-secondary education earlier in their senior year, said Ms. LeSage. Students who complete FAFSA sooner also have the ability to work with specific schools on additional financial resources and scholarship packages, she added. This funding from traditional and technical colleges is often awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so its important to apply to the school as soon as possible. Although the federal deadline for filing FAFSA is June 30, Florida requires early submission May 15 and some colleges may have even earlier deadlines. Who is eligible?The FAFSA first! campaign is also focused on busting FAFSA myths, many of them outlined at www.FAFSAfirst. org. The site notes a high GPA will qualify students for certain schools and academic scholarships, however, those with not-so-stellar grades are eligible for student aid programs emphasizing academic success once in college or career school. Ms. Desrosiers community service work in high school also helped her land additional financial assistance and scholarships. She received enough money to cover all expenses with a little left over for rainy days. You have to be on the ball and apply for scholarships every year, she said. Ms. LeSage said FAFSA doesnt just consider family income but factors in the size of the family, the age of the older siblings, cost of attendance and other information. Students who dont qualify for grants are eligible for fixed-interest student loans, which dont have to be repaid until after the recipient is no longer in school and, in some cases, are forgiven. The bottom line is you dont know unless you try, said Ms. LeSage. Serafin Estrada-Perez, a first-generation college student, plans to remain in Southwest Florida after graduating from FGCU. Hes studying business management and is already talking about earning a masters degree and opening a store in Immokalee. His college dream started with FAFSA and a Take Stock in Children scholarship from Champions For, a FutureMakers partner and backbone organization for Future Ready Collier. I didnt expect to get it, he recalled. When I found out I was really happy and thought, I can actually go to college now. My parents work in the field and I grew up helping them out when I had free time. Its hard work. I realized (going to college and getting a degree) is a better way for me to improve my future and help my parents in the future. Champions For Learning and other educational nonprofit organizations throughout Southwest Florida identify students as early as middle school and prepare them for college acceptance with mentor programs, ACT and SAT prep and an emphasis on completing FAFSA. FAFSA completion is a big part of what we do, said Steven Kissinger, executive director of The Immokalee Foundation, a FutureMakers partner. Last year 100 percent of our seniors completed FAFSA and our senior class received $1.8 million in scholarships. Regionally, Ms. Desrosiers alma mater, Immokalee High School, has one of the lowest FAFSA completion rates. Only 99 of its 297 seniors 33.3 percent completed the FAFSA during the 2015-16 school year. The school also has the largest number of low-income students 93 percent in the region, making them more in need of financial aid packages to attend college. Ms. Desrosiers life has forever been changed by that guidance counselor who insisted she complete FAFSA. Shes majoring in nursing, minoring in social work and dares to dream of a future as a social entrepreneur, working in the nonprofit sector that was instrumental for putting her on the road to success. I want to give back to people, help charities become sustainable. I want to teach others how to fish. Ms. Aguilar is also grateful to those who steered her to FAFSA and financial resources to help pay for college. Living on campus and being part of FGCU has been one of the best experiences in my life, she said. FAFSA, along with the scholarship money, made all this come true. I am extremely fortunate to be in this position. Students and parents can find out more about FAFSA by visiting www. FAFSAfirst.org.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGIs uptick in FHA mortgage delinquencies an omen for downturn?Everyone knows that real estate prices are cyclical. You have a few years of rocketing prices and then a crash. Then prices take off again and a crash. This same pattern has held true for decades. The key, and the most difficult part of real estate investing, is identifying when a new peak or valley is going to occur. Most of the time the start of a new cycle is not obvious until way after it begins. Because predicting a new cycle is not easy, analysts and investors are always scouring statistics to find that canary in the coalmine so they can be the first one to act on a new trend. Recently, a surprising piece of data relating to mortgage delinquencies was released which many in the industry believe may be such a predictor of things to come. So what was this release and what could it foretell about the housing market going forward? Last week, the Federal Housing Administration disclosed that delinquencies in its loan portfolio increased for the first time since the housing crisis in 2006. If you are not familiar with the FHA, it is a government agency that among other things insures loans for home building. FHA loans are typically taken out by first-time homebuyers and people with less than perfect credit due to low down payment requirements and relatively easy credit approval. The FHA delinquency rate increased from 8.3 percent in the third quarter of 2016 to over 9 percent in the fourth quarter. This information alone should cause concern, as this is a sizable increase. But what makes this even more worrisome is that the FHA stated that the bulk of this rise was driven by loans made in the last two years. So these were newly purchased homes already on the verge of default. The direct cause of this delinquency increase is not known at this time but many guess that a contributing factor may be the recent loosening of credit scores required to qualify for an FHA loan by banks. The FHA imposes a minimum FICO credit score of 580 to obtain an FHA insured loan but banks impose overlays w hich are more stringent credit requirements that protect the bank. In the years after the financial crisis, many banks required scores above 700 to obtain a loan. But because of recent strong economic growth and the need for banks to put money to work, many lenders have lowered their minimum required score to 675 or lower. It is these riskier borrowers who may be causing the rise in FHA delinquencies. Other types of mortgages, such as Veterans Administration and conventional loans, also have shown higher delinquency rates at the end of 2016, although to a lesser degree. In addition, foreclosure rates are also nudging higher. And all of this is happening just as the Fed is starting to increase interest rates. You can be sure that Janet Yellen will be keeping a very close eye on these numbers as the Fed slowly pushes mortgage rates higher. Despite this uptick in delinquency rates, the overall economy and housing sector remains robust. Employment is strong and home values continue to rise. The vast majority of real estate experts continue to remain optimistic that there is no cause for concern and that these FHA delinquencies will level off in 2017 as personal incomes rise and the anticipated Trump tax cuts are rolled out. I hope they are right.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to a store that opened in a converted San Diego airplane hangar in 1976. The first store with my current name opened in Seattle in 1983. I targeted only small businesses at first, but expanded to serve select consumers. My revenue soared from zero to $3 billion in less than six years. I offer employees higher pay than my rivals do and mark up my offerings by no more than 15 percent. My stock has grown by more than 10 percent annually over the past 30 years. I operate about 725 warehouses. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. A Buffett HeroWarren Buffett isnt the only investing master we can learn from. Meet Philip Carret, a hero of Buffetts, who died in 1998 at age 101. His investment career spanned 70 years, and he beat the market soundly. Carret started Pioneer, the third-oldest U.S. mutual fund, in 1928. Over 55 years, his average annual return was an impressive 13 percent. (The overall stock market has averaged annual gains of close to 10 percent over long periods.) Here are Carrets famous Commandments of investing, slightly paraphrased: 1. Never hold fewer than 10 different stocks covering five industries. 2. At least once every six months, reevaluate every stock you own. 3. Keep at least half of your money in income-producing securities, such as dividend-paying stocks. 4. Consider dividend yield the least important factor in analyzing any stock. 5. Be quick to take losses and reluctant to take profits. 6. Never put more than 25 percent of your money into securities about which detailed information is not readily available. 7. Avoid inside information as you would the plague. 8. Seek facts diligently, advice never. 9. Ignore mechanical stock-picking formulas. 10. When stocks are high, interest rates rising and business prosperous, keep at least half your money in short-term bonds. 11. Borrow money sparingly and only when stocks are low, interest rates low and falling and business depressed. 12. Set aside a moderate proportion of available funds for the purchase of longterm options on stocks in promising companies whenever available.Carret also advised: Always stay fully invested. Keep your portfolio well diversified. And noted, Traders rarely die rich, patient investors often do. When asked, What is the single most important thing that you have learned about investing over the past three quarters of a century? he answered: Patience.We can learn a lot from Carrets investing and life. He didnt spend every available minute investing. He made time for things he enjoyed, such as viewing eclipses around the world. IPO WipeoutA few years ago, I bought shares of Castlight Health, a software company focused on health care management, right after its initial public offering (IPO), for around $40 per share. The stock started falling, and I kept adding shares as it plunged. I figured that the more I averaged down, the less the stock would have to rise in order for me to break even. My average purchase price dropped to $21, but shares have been in the $3 range recently. Its a lesson learned. Ive built up my portfolio with better companies that make this holding seem insignificant. D.R., Morristown, New JerseyThe Fool Responds: Castlight has indeed been quite volatile. Part of the problem is that the stock started out overvalued it debuted on the market priced at a valuation of about $1.4 billion only a year or so after it posted just $13 million in annual revenue. Then the stock soared over 140 percent on its first trading day, reaching a market value of more than $3 billion. Clearly, the stock was way ahead of itself and likely to eventually fall closer to its intrinsic value. IPOs are often disappointing investments, as they can soar at first, only to fall back to earth later. Its best to give them a year or so to settle down. Averaging down is a risky move, too, as stocks often fall for good reasons. Watch This StockShares of AMC Networks (Nasdaq: AMCX), the network behind the hit show The Walking Dead, has acted somewhat zombielike, falling 30 percent in 2016 and drawing the attention of value-oriented investors.The companys third-quarter earnings results feature operating income down year over year, while critical advertising revenue for its national networks fell nearly 10 percent and restructuring expenses increased. Think twice before assuming that AMCs recent woes are a cause for longterm concern, though. Its management team is executing its strategic growth plan with precision. For example, AMCs licensing and distribution revenue as a percentage of its total annual revenue is on the climb. Licensing and distribution revenue is considerably steadier than advertising revenue, which should help alleviate some of its cash flow volatility. Also, AMC Networks has a healthy blend of successful programming and new content. Go-to programs such as Mad Men and Breaking Bad still bring in viewers, while its pipeline of new content is gradually rolling out, including shows such as Preacher. Some, however, worry about the decline in viewership for The Walking Dead. With a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the single digits recently, the stock is an appealing portfolio candidate especially if the company delivers another big hit. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended AMC Networks.) I trace my roots back to California in 1940, when a barbecue drive-through was founded by two New Hampshire brothers. In the 1950s, milkshake-machine salesman Ray Kroc was impressed with the places limited menu and speedy service and became a franchising agent. He bought out the brothers in 1961 with $2.7 million and spread the concept around the country. Today Im a global giant in the quickserve industry. I boast more than 36,000 restaurants worldwide, which employ close to 2 million people. More than 80 percent of my restaurants are franchised. I rake in about $25 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: McDonalds) Overvalued or Undervalued?QDoes an annual report show how overvalued or undervalued a companys stock is? C.C., Madison, IndianaAAnnual reports dont focus on companies valuations. You can see what value the market is ascribing to a company via its market capitalization (or market cap). Youll find market caps online at sites that offer data on stocks. For example, click over to finance.yahoo. com, type in a companys name or ticker symbol, and youll find its market cap. Its arrived at by multiplying the current stock price by the number of shares outstanding. A companys intrinsic, or fair, value is harder to determine, and different smart analysts will have varying estimates based on different assumptions about the companys growth prospects, among other things.Still, its well worth reading the annual reports of any companies that interest you. If youre a beginning investor, at least read the CEOs letter to shareholders, which offers a sense of management character and the companys strategic plan.The financial statements are even more informative. The balance sheet reflects the companys financial health at one point in time, including its cash, money it owes, money owed it, etc. The income statement (sometimes called the statement of operations) shows sales, costs and profits over a period of time, while the statement of cash flows will list all of the companys cash inflows and outflows during the period. The more familiar you become with financial statements, the better youll understand companies.***QWhats the big board?

The focus should have always been on value-based, quality-driven health care. His professional life has been dedicated to the industry. Mr. Lowe received an undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Virginia and worked as an EMT while in college. His original career goal was to become a physician, but that changed when he took stock of trends that saw malpractice insurance rising, while reimbursements from insurance and Medicare were declining. So the cost benefit of being that provider, after spending so many years in school, it just continued to decline, said Mr. L owe, who went on to earn a masters degree in public health from the University of Texas and an MBA from University of Miami. Mr. Lowe has lived in Collier County for much of his life. His family moved to Sanibel from Cleveland when he was 8 years old and later to Naples, which he considers to be his hometown. He is a graduate of Barron Collier High School, where he played football and baseball, including as part of the nationally ranked 1991 squad that went 33-1, its sole loss coming in state finals. Physicians Regional and its predecessor, the Cleveland Clinic, have dominated Mr. Lowes professional life in the same way that health care has. He was part of the management team that developed and built what was then Cleveland Clinics Naples campus, now Physician Regional Pine Ridge campus, in 1999. Mr. Lowe left in 2005 to become CFO for Surgery Partners in Tampa, as part a team focused on ambulatory surgery development. We grew it from one surgery center to 10 and eventually brought in investment capital to grow the business even further, he said. He returned to Physicians Regional in 2008 as CFO of the Collier Boulevard campus. His duties were later expanded to include the Pine Ridges campus and the Collier Physicians Group. He next became CEO of the Collier campus before assuming that role for the entire healthcare system. I have 1,600 employees, 300 physicians on the medical staff and more than 150 volunteers, said Mr. Lowe. My philosophy is to work with every one of them and to continue to collaborate to find better ways to do what we do. There are 2,000 brains there, and I want every one of them to collaborate on helping make this health system better. Interview with Scott LoweBusiness mentor: Not one in particular. Ive had the opportunity to work for and with many great leaders who have had varying approaches to strategy and development. First job: I worked some odd jobs through high school, but my first meaningful job was as an EMT for Charlottesville EMS in Virginia. Business words of wisdom: Encourage everyone within the organization to share their knowledge and collaborate to continually find ways to improve. Favorite business book: And Dignity for All by Jim Despain. Two things you look for when hiring: Engagement and a willingness to learn. Any job openings now? Always. We are growing and are constantly looking for good people to stay ahead of the demand for quality services.

Increases in overall pending sales (homes under contract), overall closed sales and overall inventory indicate a strong season ahead, according to the newest numbers from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. Broker analysts who reviewed the NABOR January 2017 market report, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island) using the Southwest Florida MLS, are confident that market indicators are favorable to support momentum through season. We are definitely in a buyers market now, said Phil Wood, president and CEO of John R. Wood Properties. He pointed out that the 6 percent increase in overall closed sales for January was driven by a 14 percent increase in closed sales of condominiums. Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty Inc., agreed and said the increase in inventory is especially positive for buyers looking in the under-$300,000 condominium market, which increased by over 400 units in January. The January report shows overall pending sales increased 9 percent, to 924 in January 2017 from 847 in January 2016. Broker analysts said they are most encouraged by pending sales activity in the middle range of the market, namely, homes between $300,000 and $2 million, which all experienced double-digit increases in January. Overall closed sales increased 6 percent, to 603 in January 2017 from 571 closed sales in January 2016. Interestingly, January was the first time overall pending sales and overall closed sales were on the upswing simultaneously since March 2015. The report also showed that overall inventory for all price segments increased by double digits in January. Condominium inventory in the $2 million and above category had the highest gain, jumping 44 percent to 135 condoSEE NABOR, B16 House Hunting1461 Anhinga PointeFor fans of stunning sunsets overlooking lake and golf course views, there may not be a better bet than this expansive property in Grey Oaks.

NABORFrom page 12miniums in January 2017 from 94 condominiums in January 2016. Increases in inventory typically drive prices down, said Kathy Zorn, broker/owner at Florida Home Realty. And yet, with a 28 percent increase in inventory in the $500,000 to $1,000,000 condominium price range, we show an increase in the median price of 9 percent over last year. Ms. Zorn added that geographic proximity to the beach remains a driving force in the Naples market. As such, properties in the Naples beach area experienced a 15 percent increase in overall median closed price to $784,000 in January 2017 from $680,000 in January 2016. Pending sales for the Naples beach condo market for January 2017 increased by almost 40 percent compared to last year, and closings were up 16 percent. This was mostly driven by a somewhat limited condominium market in the Naples beach area, where inventory increased 34 percent and pending sales shot up 39 percent in January. Today, buyers have more choices, Ms. Zorn said. Nationally, a balanced market (balanced equally between buyers and sellers) is considered to be six months of inventory. The NABOR repors shows 8.91 months of inventory in January The last time we had a supply of inventory like this was five years ago, said Adam Vellano, west coast sales manager for BEX RealtyFlorida. I think its time to remind sellers that price sells a home. Many NABOR broker analysts said they have observed a large increase in investor-held single-family homes being added to the inventory mix in recent weeks. Ms. Zorn pointed to signs of bracket creep in the report, such as a 23 percent increase in inventory for single-family homes in the $300,000 to $500,000 category, while its median closed price fell 4 percent. Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc. warned that sellers who are testing the market with high list prices might be disappointed in a few months. These sellers see a reduction in list price as a reduction in value, when this is not the case at all, she said. Ms. Zorn agreed and added that the cost of holding out for a higher price in many cases, especially for investors, could result in a loss of revenue from both rental income and unavoidable costs like taxes and insurance. The NABOR January 2017 market report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary.

Will La La Land walk away with a record number of Oscars? (The record for most wins is 11, shared by three movies: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003), Titanic (1997), and Ben-Hur (1959).) Will Denzel Washington win his third, and Meryl Streep her fourth? Will Matt Damons feud with host Jimmy Kimmel rear its ugly (and hilarious) head? We focus here on only the big six categories, but those in Oscar pools can expect Zootopia to win Animated Feature, O.J.

FLORIDA WRITERSA panoramic novel about how America began its global ascent to power An Honorable War by Robert N. Macomber. Pineapple Press. 392 pages. Hardcover, $26.95; trade paperback, $16.95. How does Robert Macomber keep doing this? The 13th installment of his splendid Honor Series once again transforms a pile of historical fact into a work of colorful, well imagined and highly suspenseful entertainment. Captain Peter Wake, assigned to the Office of Naval Intelligence, is no desk jockey, but a man of action in this case, leading the action plan that he designed to satisfy the ambitious and often outlandish Theodore Roosevelt, assistant secretary of the Navy. The authors subtitle sets the historical scene: The Spanish-American War Begins. This episode, cast as another segment of the memoirs of Capt. Wake, launches a three-part trilogy within the burgeoning series. It is immensely impressive, though it sometimes walks on the edge of too much detail and too many voices. As is so often the case in historical fiction, we must accept the awkward convention of a narrator remembering conversations verbatim. Its a small price to pay for the explosive results. Roosevelt is a warrior wannabe who has just enough clout and cunning to engage his country in the destiny of Cuba. The story Mr. Macomber tells so engagingly begins with the explosion of the USS Maine, one of the first U.S. battleships, in Havana Harbor. It was a deadly catastrophe that killed hundreds and helped fire antiSpanish sentiment and rally U.S. support for an independent Cuba. Indeed, the ship had been sent to protect American interests following Spains cruel suppression of the Cuban revolution. Wake finds himself charged with two missions. The first is to gather information about Spanish intentions and military capacities as well as the situation of Cuban rebels. He and Rork, his longtime friend and associate, barely escape this clandestine operation with their lives. The second mission, based on the information gathered in the first, involves maneuvers against Spanish forces conducted from the port of Isabela. Wake puts together a fleet of converted yachts whose agility makes them unusually effective against the larger Spanish ships. He also masterminds all kinds of tactical tricks that surprise the enemy sailors and throw them off guard. These actions scenes are superb, and for many readers the heart of the novel. For this reader, the heart of the novel is in the complex relationship between Rork and his beautiful wife, a woman from a powerful Spanish family who followed her heart instead of her head in marrying this strongminded, dutiful patriot. Indeed, she seems to have betrayed her heritage and she has sacrificed her relationships with her adult sons at great emotional cost. Wake loves her dearly, but she knows that he must follow the call of duty above all else. They are both hoping for a quiet togetherness in their older years, which are soon approaching. As he has done regularly, Mr. Macomber sets his main characters and plot lines in the context of how politics governs decisionmaking. His portrayal of the ins and outs of political jostling adds a dimension of interest that will seem oddly familiar to the news addicts of today. An author who is committed to authenticity, Mr. Macomber excels at presenting the material, especially the technological culture at the 19th centurys conclusion. The conversations about armaments have an unexpected allure, so important are such details to the characters involved. This panoramic novel has several major settings, a large cast of well-defined characters and a generous supply of insights about how the United States began to transform itself into a global power. About the authorRobert N. Macomber is an award-winning author, internationally acclaimed lecturer, former defense consultant and an accomplished seaman. His novels are the product of his intense research, both academic and at the locales in which they are set. When not on research treks, lecture tours or book-signing journeys, Mr. Macomber lives on Pine Island, along the same coast of Southwest Florida where he grew up. For relaxation, he enjoys sailing his small sloop among the nearby mangrove islands and loves cooking the exotic cuisines from his many novels.

midst of directing and choreographing The Naples Players production, set to open March 1. Ive done the contemporary stuff, she says, admitting that she didnt know My Fair Lady that well even though her mother was part of the ensemble in the shows 1976 revival on Broadway. Her mother didnt force the classics on her, she says. Instead, Ms. Fornara grew up watching Broadway shows that were contemporary for the time, such as Pippin and Jesus Christ Superstar. And thats what shes used to acting in and directing. Im used to doing musicals that have so many numbers: number, number, number, she says. My Fair Lady certainly has more than its fair share of beloved songs: Wouldnt It Be Loverly, I Could Have Danced All Night, Ive Grown Accustomed to Her Face, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, Show Me, Get Me to the Church On Time. But rather than presenting song after song after song interspersed with just a sprinkling of dialogue as many modern musicals do, My Fair Lady has a substantial book. To me, this is a play; the book is so heavy in the show, she says. I love it. I love that theres so much substance.Apples and orangesGulfshore Playhouse, a professional Equity theater at The Norris Center just blocks away from the Sugden Community Theatre, staged My Fair Lady earlier this season. But even though its the same musical, the two productions are like apples and oranges. The Gulfshore Playhouse version had only 10 people in its cast, the majority of who played multiple roles. And they were accompanied by two pianos. The Naples Players show has a cast of 32 and an orchestra of 13. Ms. Fornara saw the Gulfshore Playhouse production and says she found it wonderful, a really cool idea. The Naples Players, however, are presenting the full-scale show: full costumes, full orchestra, full sets. Full grandeur more in line with what people expect when they think of My Fair Lady. The Lerner and Loewe musical tells the story of Professor Higgins, who bets his friend, Col. Pickering, that he can transform commoner Eliza Doolittle from a girl selling flowers on the street into a someone who passes as a lady in society. It opened on Broadway in 1956 with Rex Harrison as the professor and Julie Andrews as Eliza. The original cast album became a best-selling record, and the play won four Tony Awards and three Theatre World Awards. A 1964 movie was made with Mr. Harrison reprising his role and with Audrey Hepburn as Eliza. Numerous revivals sprung up in subsequent years on both Broadway and Londons West End, along with tours in Berlin, Australia and Paris.Psychoanalyzing HigginsEven for those who love the musical, the character of Professor Higgins can be difficult to embrace. Looking at a lot of these old musicals, theyre filled with misogyny, Ms. Fornara says. Its such a hard role to play; he has to be arrogant and charming at the same time, otherwise were going to turn him off immediately. Im assuming he had a relationship at some point, and that it was an epic fail that changed him, so he will not get close to anybody, she hypothesizes. And Eliza is so different than everybody hes around. She has all this beauty and kindness and eloquence inside her that he just brings out, and the relationship makes a little bit of sense. Do they last forever? Youre not sure. But for the moment, its really nice. Theres a scene that keeps sticking in Ms. Fornaras mind. Eliza asks the professor, Why should I come back? And he replies, For the fun of it. Everything Higgins does is for the fun of it, she says. Even taking in Eliza and teaching her how to speak properly and act in society is done on a bet. Every person he interacts with is for the fun of it, Ms. Fornara says. But he gets involved (with her.) I dont think he knows how to handle it. Hes a giant baby and she knows that he is, but she knows how to deal with him. I think he loves the fact that he cant get away with anything with her and has found his match. Shes wise to him. She is a challenge, and I think he loves that. She wants the actors playing the roles Dave Gipson as Higgins, Elizabeth Marcantonio as Eliza and David Whalley as Col. Pickering to make them their own characters. Were playing the characters. Were not playing the actors playing the characters, she explains. And thats hard, because of audiences expectations. But her stars have their own strengths to play off of, she says, describing Ms. Marcantonio as a little powerhouse. Shes just wonderful. In Wouldnt It Be Loverly, for example, Ms. Marcantonio is not Julie Andrews. Were going a little grittier with that. Shes still in Covent Garden, but shes not a Disney princess. She gives Eliza the spark and sassiness that she needs. Shes from the streets. Shes not a proper girl, so the comparison to later is a huge contrast. Its funny, I feel like everybody makes transformations in this show. As for Higgins, she says, The misogyny is put on. Its not real. Hes arrogant, but its for the fun of it. Thats the underlying theme for me: Can this man possibly be this much of a jerk and be likeable? Higgins really is an enormous baby, she concludes. All of his bullying is in good humor, but its not received that way. Its a hard role. Another challenge for the actors is that the characters theyre portraying are extremely complex. For example, she says, You have to play: Im nervous, but Im pretending not to be. Thats always difficult to play on stage. Its a fine line. Everything has a fine line in this show.Falling in loveAlthough she wasnt very familiar with the show initially, Ms. Fornara has fallen in love with it over the past several weeks. The music is absolutely fantastic, she says. Its really beautiful. I feel its such a lovely show. Older musicals, including My Fair Lady, tend to run long, but Ms. Fornaras direction for The Naples Players picks up the pace, turning what could be a three-hour evening at the theater into one thats about 2 hours long. She says not being overly familiar with the musical has helped her approach it with fresh eyes as she directs and choreographs. Part of doing this show is not reinventing the wheel, she says. I think outside of the box on a couple of things, for sure. But she also knows the importance of recreating the feeling that audiences who so love My Fair Lady are accustomed to.

H00616 8/16 ARTS COMMENTARYFlorida Reps Mockingbird: Shattered illusions and racism in the SouthThat justice and right dont always prevail is a bitter truth to swallow, no matter what our age. It shatters our world when we first learn this, and it disheartens us when were reminded of it again and again as grown-ups. That evil often wins and racism prevails yet we must still strive to do right is a major theme in Harper Lees Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, a classic many of us read in high school. And in its typical timely manner, Florida Repertory Theatre puts on a production of Christopher Sergels adaptation of the book. Its obvious, through director Robert Cacioppos loving attention to every detail, from set to casting to staging, that this play is important to him. The production has a cast of 28, with many Florida Rep ensemble members portraying minor characters and a couple of actors playing double roles. There are so many excellent performances in this production its not possible to mention them all. Though the book was published in 1960, it unfortunately still has great relevance for us today. To Kill a Mockingbird is a memory play, in which Jean Louise Finch (Barbara Wengerd), called Scout as a girl, looks back on her childhood. She is a kind and thoughtful narrator, drawing us in, explaining what things were like while also watching with us as the action takes place. We trust her and instantly like her. Richard Crowells innovative set design helps add to this feeling of looking back in time; the set consists of six oversized pages with passages from the novel and retro illustrations. Simple sets roll out from between the pages as the story comes to life before our eyes. While Jean Louises memories involve playing with her older brother Jem and becoming friends with neighbor Dill, the story also revolves around the time when her widowed father, lawyer Atticus Finch (V Craig Heidenreich), a white man, is asked to defend Tom Robinson (Kevin Craig West), a black man falsely accused of rape. Its 1935 in Maycomb, Ala., and Atticus knows that despite his best efforts and despite the evidence, the jury will likely find the accused guilty. While Act I leads up to the trial and focuses on Scouts idyllic childhood and capers with Jem and Dill, Act II takes us into the courtroom. It is a difficult thing, as a child, to be confronted with incomprehensible ugly realities of life, and a difficult thing also, for adults, to explain and discuss those realities with their children. Liza Jayne Longenhagen plays a sassy and tomboyish Scout, adventurous and full of curiosity. This budding thespian is the daughter of two local actors, Liz Abbott and Florida Rep ensemble member Greg Longenhagen (recently seen in House of Blue Leaves), and its clear she has inherited their talent. Harvey E. Evans plays Jem, teetering on the outer edges of childhood. (He has a great scene where he covets a gun when he sees his father shoot a mad dog.) The two befriend Dill (William Garrabrant), a quirky and charismatic kid whos based on a young Truman Capote. Mr. Garrabrant, at times, threatens to run away with the show. The motherless Finch kids are overseen by a housekeeper, Calpurnia (Patricia Idlette, in yet another maid role.) Ms. Idlette gives the children tough love and provides many of the plays laughs, as she hovers over them like a mother hen. Unfortunately, the night I attended (a preview performance just prior to opening night), it was sometimes difficult to hear and comprehend the child actors, who are not as good as adults in projecting, and also spoke in Southern accents. At times, they were also fighting with loud atmospheric music that sometimes overwhelmed the dialogue. This was the topic of half a dozen theatergoers seated near me during intermission; one woman said she could understand maybe half of what the children were saying. Mr. Heidenreich plays Atticus as a very moral man who teaches his children that they cant truly understand a person until theyve put themselves in the others shoes. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view until you climb around in his skin and walk around in it, he says. He tries to teach Scout and Jem that different is not bad, and that we should attempt to understand those who are not like us, like their critical neighbor, Mrs. Dubose (Viki Boyle) or the local recluse, Boo Radley (Gerrit Vandermeer). Atticus is the moral center of the play; he is decency personified, dressed in a three-piece cream-colored suit. His closing argument at the trial is a highlight of the play, as he addresses the audience, who sit in as the jury. It is a firey defense. Mr. West, as the accused, has perhaps the most challenging role. As a mob of white men threaten to lynch him and, at the trial, the sleazy prosecuting attorney (Mr. Vandermeer again,) demeans him and calls him boy, he is trapped in system where the truth will not save him. His agony is painful to watch. Sarah Katherine Zanotti as Mayella Ewell, the young woman who claims Tom raped her, also puts on a spectacular piece of acting. Shes scared yet defiant, a young woman obviously cowed and abused by her alcoholic father, Bob (William McNulty). Its a bravura performance, and you cant take your eyes off of her. You wish she could break free of her father and her horrible existence, yet you also hate her because her lies are sending an innocent man to his death. Mr. McNulty, as her drunk and violent father, is despicable, acting on pure hatred. To Kill a Mockingbird is a plea to consider things from others viewpoints. Sadly, more than 50 years later, it remains timely and still resonates, its message still sorely needed. r a R W l 1 a nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com To Kill a Mockingbird>> When: Through March 8 >> Where: Florida Repertory Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $25-$52 >> Info: 332-4488 or www. oridarep.org COURTESY PHOTOAtticus Finch (V Craig Heidenreich), his childrens caregiver Calpurnia (Patricia Idlette) and siblings Jem (Harvey E.

CONTRACT BRIDGEFrom darkness into light BY STEVE BECKERAssume youre in four hearts and West leads the queen and another club, which you ruff. The problem is to find the best method of play and this is not easy even if you look at all four hands. There are several assumptions youre entitled to make without seeing the East-West cards. One is that the trumps are divided 3-2, since you have no chance to make the contract if they're divided 4-1. Another is that East, who opened the bidding, has the ace of spades. It would be easy enough to make 10 tricks if West had three hearts and East two. You could cash the K-A of trumps, force out the ace of spades and later ruff a spade in dummy. The danger in playing this way is that East might have three trumps, as in the actual deal. If you drew two rounds of trumps and then played a spade to the queen, East would take the ace and cash his high trump. You would then go down one, losing two spades, a heart and a club. However, assuming East has the spade ace, there is a way to make 10 tricks regardless of which defender has three hearts. To accomplish this, you play the A-K of hearts and then lead the six of spades from dummy. If East goes up with the ace, you no longer need to ruff a spade, so lets say he plays low. In that case, you win the spade with the king, lead a diamond to the ten, ruff a club and continue with a diamond to the ace. If East ruffs, your only remaining loser is a spade; if he discards, you ruff dummys last club and continue playing diamonds. Whatever East does, you are sure to finish with 10 tricks.

Its more than DC Comics characters who come into play (Sauron, Voldemort, etc.), which is part of the fun and it is a heckuva lot of fun. Rated PG. The Comedian (Robert De Niro, Leslie Mann, Edie Falco) Struggling stand-up comic Jackie Burke (Mr. De Niro) bickers with his agent (Ms. Falco) and finds a kindred spirit in a woman he meets in a soup kitchen (Ms. Mann). The jokes are hit and miss, the story labors and ultimately, Jackie is too pigheaded to root for. Rated R. A 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 15yearold 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 shoo-ins for Oscar acting nominations. Rated PG-13.Passengers (Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen) On a space ship, Jim (Mr. Pratt) and Aurora (Ms. Lawrence) wake 90 years before their scheduled arrival to their new destination. Its slow, predictable, and thoroughly mediocre. More comic relief is sorely needed, especially from the two leads. Rated PG-13.

This movie is a crass, unrealistic and, worst of all, unfunny look at a high school that is truly out of this world. In truth, that it is all of the above is not in itself bad, as this is a comedy, which means as long as its funny all is forgiven. But its not funny. In fact, the so-called humor is when the film is the most pathetically inept. Roosevelt High School is not a place you want to send your kids, or worse, be employed. Most of director Richie Keens movie takes place on the last day of school, during which teachers have completely checked out and seniors seem to be trying to get expelled before graduation (alas, there is no mention of graduation). Kids wear T-shirts with expletives, watch porn in the hall, destroy water fountains, vandalize cars, harass the security guard (Kumail Nanjiani), masturbate in the bathroom, etc. In addition to indifferently dealing with unruly behavior, the faculty faces the pressure of having to interview to secure their jobs for next year. Essentially everyone, including English teacher Mr. Campbell (Charlie Day), the guidance counselor (Jillian Bell) and the physical education teacher (Tracy Morgan), has stopped trying to enforce school rules. Except one: Mr. Strickland (Ice Cube). He demands respect and discipline. When he speaks, the kids listen. And if they dont, hell destroys their desks with an axe as theyre sitting in them. We know this because he does it. On a day hes supposed to interview to keep his job. Yes, its that kind of movie. When Mr. Campbell and Mr. Strickland are called to the principals (Dean Norris) office to discuss the axe incident, Mr. Campbell blames it on Mr. Strickland. Infuriated, Mr. Strickland challenges Mr. Campbell to a fight after school. So begins an inane, humorless and labored series of events that allow Ice Cube to act angry, Mr. Day to act like a scared sissy and an underused Christina Hendricks to play a sadistic teacher (to decent effect). Said series of events includes: planting drugs, a horse on meth, a little girl singing explicit song lyrics, soliciting a teen for sex, blackmail, extortion, beatings and shameless product placement for Apple. Theres only one comedic bit that works in all 91 minutes of this misfire: After Mr. Campbell is challenged to fight, hes told by others of Mr. Stricklands past, which is the stuff of urban legend. Everyone has a Mr. Strickland story, it seems. They cant all be true, but if even one of them is true Mr. Campbell knows hes screwed. Among them: Mr. Strickland killed Saddam Husseins two sons, he was a gang enforcer and he plays the piano. Its a clever montage that works well to establish how endangered Mr. Campbell is. More originality like this, as opposed to crass easy humor, wouldve made the movie much better. But, as always, I must review the movie I saw, not the movie they could/ should have made. And ugh to the movie I saw.

My mother loved the 19th century glassware her grandmother had collected and preserved pieces by Webb, J.H. Hobbs, Brockunier and Co., Mount Washington and others. Those were part of history. But sometimes, history continued to be made. That was the case with Fenton Glass of Williamstown, W. Va., which turned out beautiful quality interpretations of 19th-century classics. I remember my mother and grandmother bundling my sister, brother and me into the car to make a trek from Fort Myers to Naples back in the early 1970s. At the time, there was no Interstate 75 and no four-lane U.S. 41 only Old 41, which snaked through Bonita Springs, past the dog track and on toward Naples there was a gorgeous antiques shop called Bibelots and Beads that we liked to visit in Old Naples. Invariably, we would stop at the Barn of Glassware on 41 near Bonita Springs. The building was painted red and shaped like a barn and was loaded with the latest from Fenton and L.G. Wright. There, my mom could satisfy her craving for the colorful handmade glass. I grew up around Fenton glass. My step-grandmother had a beautiful set of Fentons Silver Crest pattern, essentially white milk glass that had a crystal ribbon ruffle around the edge. Those Fenton Crests were inspired by 19th-century glass, which in turn had drawn inspiration from the centuriesold tradition of Venetian glass. Fenton first made its Crests in 1941, and they were an immediate hit. Other color variations followed, and I now have a large collection of Fenton Crests in a rainbow of colors aqua, emerald, flame, rose, ebony. During the 1950s, Fenton reversed its glass, using colored glass for the base of an object and milk glass for the ribbon in what the company called its Snowcrests. Some of those color combinations are quite rare Im still looking for a piece of Jade Snowcrest to round out my collection its jade glass with a milk glass ribbon. The last piece I saw was 15 years ago at the Ortiz Flea Market in Fort Myers. I know Ill find a piece of the jade. But until then, these Ruby Snowcrest bowls have won my heart.

Mysterious wooden wheels with wooden spokes and about a 45-inch diameter were popular in the 1950s. They were hung on a wall as a decoration or put flat in a flowerbed. Each section between the spokes was planted with a different herb or flower. The wheels were copied in giftware catalogs but were never identified as part of a walking spinning wheel used to spin woolen yarn. A curved bowl shaped like part of the border of a circle is sometimes sold at an antique shop. The bowl usually is made by important porcelain companies and it seems to be a bargain. It is part of a set of four crescent-shaped bowls and one round bowl that fit together to make a circle. It held foods like olives, pickles and sauces or several types of vegetables in the curved bowls with sauce in the round center bowl. Most sets were made with the five bowls and a lid for the centerpiece. Once a piece broke, the set couldnt be used. But the pieces still were attractive when used alone. A set made by Coalport porcelain in the Imari pattern sold in 2016 for $923. Single curved bowls can be found for $50 to $75. A covered center bowl might be $100. Q: I have miniature blue Wedgwood pieces made in Occupied Japan, two ashtrays and a vase. What are they worth? A: Wedgwood was not made in Occupied Japan. Your pieces were made between 1945 and 195 2, the years when Japan was occupied by the United States troops. There are collectors of OJ pieces. The small pieces are worth about $10 to $15. Q: Can give me some information about Cushman furniture? A: Henry Theodore Cushman (18441922) started a factory in North Bennington, Vermont, in the early 1870s and made corks and erasers. By 1880, he had a mail-order business selling stationers supplies and specialties. He made wooden roller skates, which were sold through his mail order business.

Cushman began making furniture in 1886 and was operating as H.T. Cushman Co. by 1889. Mission, colonial and modern furniture were made. Early furniture was made in oak, maple or mahogany. Yellow birch was used exclusively beginning in the 1950s. In 1964 the company was sold to General Industries, which sold it to Green Mountain Furniture Co. in 1971. Green Mountain Furniture went out of business in 1980. Q: I have a red plastic Woody Woodpecker toy about 5 inches tall with a wobble head and a harmonica on the back. When blown across, it imitates his laugh. This was purchased in 1949 or 1950. I havent been able to find any information on this. Would you have any idea what this is worth? A: The first Woody Woodpecker cartoon ran in movie theaters in 1941. According to one of our readers, this Woody Woodpecker harmonica toy was sold at movie theaters in the s. The Woody Woodpecker harmonica and a Woody Woodpecker kazoo toy were premiums offered for 25 cents and proof of purchase from one of Kelloggs cereals. Kellogg was a sponsor of the The Woody Woodpecker Show, originally on TV in 1957 and 1958. The value of your toy is under $20. Q: I have a Sarah Coventry necklace that I was told is 85-90 years old. Its 16-18 inches long and has graduated glass beads strung on fine copper wire and a copper ring and clasp. I was told it was Waterford crystal. Id like to know how old it is and what its worth. A: Its newer than you think. Sarah Coventry was founded in 1949. Jewelry was designed by freelance designers and made by other companies. It was sold through home parties. The company went bankrupt in 1981 and was sold several times after that. Sarah Coventry jewelry is no longer being made, but is sold online. Waterford is the name of a company known for its glass, but some people use the name for other clear glass. The value of your necklace is about $50 retail. Q: I bought a painting by Theodore Wassmer at a thrift shop 40 years ago. I think the painting is called Woman and Pearls. Its signed Wassmer in the lower left hand corner. Can you give me an idea of value? A: Theodore Wassmer (1910-2006) was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He began painting in the 1930s and worked on several murals for the WPA before enlisting in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1942. His painting arm was partially paralyzed after an operation while in the service but he continued to paint. He and his wife lived in Bearsville, N.Y., near the Woodstock Art Colony, for several years before returning to Salt Lake City. Wassmer did over 2,000 paintings and drawings, most done after 1945. Your painting should be seen by an art expert to determine value. Tip: Take batteries with you to toy sales if you plan to buy a battery-operated toy. Check to see if the toy really works. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. The amount of mail makes personal answers or appraisals impossible.

La La Land tied a record held by All About Eve (1950) and Titanic (1997) with 14 nominations, and most pundits have it winning anywhere between 8-10 total Oscars, including the big one. La La Land won the BAFTA (British Oscar), Producers Guild and Directors Guild awards, all of which are notable precursors to Oscar glory. Its also a technically impressive, beautiful film thats about struggling artistry, which the Academy has repeatedly embraced (hence the recent Best Picture wins for The Artist and Birdman). Anything other than a La La victory will be a tremendous upset; if it happens (and it wont), itll be either Hidden Figures, Manchester By The Sea or Moonlight. Nominees Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Fences, Lion and Arrival are all good movies, but not strong contenders. Will win: La La Land Should win: La La Land, as it was my number one movie of 2016 Usually Best Director aligns with Best Picture, and thatll be the case again this year, as La La Land director Damien Chazelle is the heavy favorite to pick up the prize. He won the DGA and BAFTA awards, and his film is beloved by the Academy. Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) is only the fourth black director ever nominated in this category, Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) received his first nomination of any kind since winning for Braveheart (1996), and Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester By The Sea) are each enjoying their first director nominations. Will win: Damien Chazelle Should win: Damien Chazelle Predicting Best Actor is tough. Although Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) and Ryan Gosling (La La Land) were great, this is a twohorse race between Denzel Washington (Fences) and Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea). Washington was superb because he went big as a man struggling to come to terms with his life, and the Academy loves showy performances. In contrast, Affleck went small by internalizing much of his characters grief and numbness. Its a hard thing to do, and perhaps even harder to recognize and fully appreciate. Washington won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award, which is the best indication of what industry people think of the talent nominated. Affleck won BAFTA, arguably in part because Washington wasnt nominated there. Will win: Denzel Washington Should win: Casey Affleck Best Supporting Actor is similarly OSCARFrom page 1 La La Land

Mahershala Ali won SAG for the critically beloved Moonlight, while Dev Patel took the BAFTA for Lion. But this category could yield the surprise of the evening: Former winner Jeff Bridges is nominated for Hell or High Water, Lucas Hedges was great as a troubled teen in Manchester By The Sea, and Michael Shannon was superb in Nocturnal Animals. When predicting this, how risky do you want to be? Safe money is on Ali. Will win: Mehershala Ali Should win: Lucas Hedges. As for Supporting Actress, all eyes are on Viola Davis (Fences) in one of the best categories of the night. Naomie Harris was phenomenal in Moonlight. Michelle Williams broke our hearts in Manchester By The Sea. Nicole Kidman was an ideal adoptive mother in Lion. And Octavia Spencer was strong and resilient in Hidden Figures. In the end, though, itll be three-time nominee Davis, whose performance as a woman who puts all her faith into a flawed man is one of the most stirring pieces of acting youll ever see. Will win: Viola Davis Should win: Viola Davis Best Actress isnt as strong a category, but is just as easy to predict. This is Emma Stones to lose, and what a treat that will be for La La Land fans. Shes won the major awards leading up to Oscar night, and her competition has mounted little opposition to her momentum. However, Isabelle Huppert gave the best performance amongst the nominees as a woman whos raped and plots an unusual course of revenge in Elle. Meryl Streep earned her 20th career nomination for her performance as a lovably terrible opera singer in Florence Foster Jenkins, Ruth Negga excelled as one half of an interracial couple during the civil rights movement in Loving, and Natalie Portman shined bright as former first lady Jackie Kennedy in Jackie. Will win: Emma Stone Should win: Isabelle Huppert Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 89th Academy Awards Sunday night, Feb. 26, on ABC. See more of Dan Hudeks film coverage at www.punchdrunkmovies.com.

A smoked salmon hoecake with sweet pea mash, crme fraiche, pea tendrils and red jalapenos was an excellent starter. A nightly special, whisky crab bisque with Meyer lemon foam on top, was equally good. Cornmeal-crusted lane snapper was perfectly cooked then topped with Vidalia and green onion escabeche, raisins, tangerines and frisee.

Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake.

The hip MidTown Kitchen + Bar is much like his HobNob Kitchen but with a parking lot and outside the confines of Old Naples. Whether you want to sit in the bar, at big booths in the dining room, outside or at a communal table, its all there along with a staff of well-trained servers to deliver beverages and a goodly assortment of small and large plates that run the gamut from virtuously vegetarian to confirmed carnivore. Cold water black mussels with spicy curry, lemongrass and coconut milk could have been warmer but were tasty nonetheless, served with pita triangles for sopping up the delicious sauce. Crispy chicken thighs with cashews and kung pao sauce were also good. The vegetarian plate featured faro, roasted Brussels sprouts, baby bok choy, carrots and sweet potatoes. Even meat lovers would enjoy this hearty platter. The $28 lobster roll was pricey but large and delicious, served with sweet potato fried sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Full bar.

Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips, long, crisp plantain strips served with well-seasoned ground beef are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans.

One unique feature at Tarpon Bay is the ceviche bar, which serves up eight variations in flights.

Eight a la carte fish varieties are offered with a choice of eight sauces; a wahoo steak with corn and pepper emulsion was perfectly moist and flaky and the sauce added a smoky sweetness that enhanced the mild fish.

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT Every Night 8:30 p.m. until Close BEST MEDITERRANEAN FOOD Like its namesake, Escargot 41 maintains a low (but delicious) profileAlthough it has been in existence since 2005, Escargot 41 remains something of an insiders secret. That may be due, in part, to its ultra low-key location tucked into the corner of Park Shore Plaza between a barbershop and a Goodwill store. This cozy little restaurant was created by chef/owner Patrick Fevrier, who sold it a couple of years ago to Stoyan Panayotov. He has expanded the seating out on the front sidewalk and has removed a large table that previously dominated the middle of the dining room with a huge vase of flowers on it. In its place, he appears to have added at least a couple more tables so that there are about 14 in the well-appointed room that seems plucked from a home in France. Mr. Panayotov has also modified the wine list and the menu, scaling both back a bit but not so much that most customers will notice. Mr. Fevrier was a regular on the Wine Spectator list for his exemplary wine selections. The current list is still bountiful but not encyclopedic. There are plenty of interesting wines from which to choose, and you can spend a lot or a moderate amount and still enjoy a good bottle. We ordered the 2013 Ridge East Bench Zinfandel, a smooth red with lots of cherry and plum notes as well as a hint of smoke. Our meal began on a promising note, with an amuse of cream of cauliflower soup, which was smooth and butt ery and full of cauliflower flavor. It was served in a miniature cup just right for sipping. As you might expect at a place named Escargot 41, there are snails on the menu seven variations, which is a nice assortment but about half the number served by Mr. Fevrier. Thats not a major issue since there are still plenty of variations from which to select. We tried two types: the Fricassee 41 ($14.95) and the Escargot a la mode de LAbbaye ($15.95). The LAbbaye bathed the little critters in fresh cream then added caramelized onions, black pepper and Armagnac. While we expected that combination to deliver a symphony of flavor, what arrived was disappointingly bland. The snails were tender, but I detected no distinctive note of brandy, and even the onions took a back seat to the bowl full of cream sauce. The other dish was far better. It was creatively served in three eggcups holding eggshells that were cracked at the top and filled with scrambled eggs, tomatoes and herbs with two large snails stuffed into each shell then topped with a cream puff pastry. Although the name was far less snazzy, the dish itself was much more flavorful. A plate of sea-salt-cured salmon coated in coffee then hickory smoked ($15.95) was delicious the fish soft and flavorful without being too salty, served with a bounty of capers, red onion, lemon, sour cream and toast points. I could have made this my entre, except that I hadnt order it and so had to content myself with a few bites of my companions wise choice. Another great starter is the house pate ($12.95), a country pate studded with pepper and served with red onion, tomatoes and pickles. The tournedos lesdiguiere ($30.95) consisted of beef tenderloin sauted with creamed spinach and Swiss cheese atop a marsala mushroom brown sauce. The meat was fork tender and the sauce was had the rich flavor youd expect of a marsala sauce. You dont see bronzino ($30.95) on too many menus, but it is an excellent, flaky fish and it was well treated in the Escargot 41 kitchen, sauted and simply finished with an almond beurre meuniere sauce. I ordered the half crispy duck rubbed with fresh garlic salt served on top of plum port wine sauce ($29.95). While it was a half, it was the back half, consisting of two legs and thighs. The skin was a lovely golden brown, but it wasnt crisp, as described on the menu, and was somewhat fatty. The meat and sauce were flavorful, though, and it came with green beans and a piece each of white and sweet potato. Dessert is mandatory at French restaurants. While I was tempted by the profiteroles, it was the chocolate souffl ($12.50) that won out. It took a few minutes to prepare but when it arrived, it was light, fluffy and accompanied by a rich, thick chocolate sauce. My companions shared a raspberry version ($12.50) that was equally light and fluffy, but the raspberry sauce wasnt as vibrant as the chocolate. Service was good throughout the meal. Our server was vigilant, made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us periodically to make sure each course was to our liking. I was disappointed to see the restaurant less than full on a Saturday night in season, but Naples is endowed with a plentiful assortment of French establishments (not to mention hundreds of other dining options), and this one is well away from the road, so you arent likely to stumble upon it by chance. Nonetheless, its well worth finding, especially if you are fond of escargot. Theres no other spot in town where these little molluscs are so plentiful and so revered.

Kalea Bays community amenities popular with buyersSecond tower released for saleIf the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed threebedroom plus den/three-and-a-halfbath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adultsonly pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Two of the top rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Wilson. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated completion of the first residential tower, which is currently 80 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2, said Wilson. 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. 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 Gulf 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: Kalea Bays clubhouse has a lounge that opens out to the adults-only pool. The fitness center features state-of-the-art equipment. The Bistro is the ideal place for Kalea Bay residents to enjoy a snack. The 88,000-square-foot clubhouse features three separate pools.

Buyers at Allure revitalize their lifestyle and enjoy all of the benefits of purchasing a brand new homeFor buyers at ALLURE, the new, luxury 32-story condominium to be developed on the bank of the Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, the benefits of purchasing a brand new home far outweigh those of buying a previously-owned residence. One of these benefits is a significant savings on energy consumption, since new homes are held to much tougher national code standards than those that were built years ago. Residences at ALLURE feature energy efficient walls, windows, doors, airconditioners, and Energy Star appliances, as well as the latest wiring needed for high-speed electronics and communication, and entertainment and security systems. Another benefit of purchasing a new home versus a resale is the savings on replacement costs because everything in a new residence is brand new. This includes all of the appliances, the air conditioning system, water heater, and the roof, doors and windows, most of which also come with a warranty. In addition to the above benefits, buying a new residence provides owners with the latest safety features such as high-impact resistant windows and slider doors, fire retardant carpeting and insulation, and hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors with battery-powered back-up in case of electrical outages. Finally, if and when residents of ALLURE decide to sell their new home, the resale value will be greater than that of an older residence, making it a smart investment. ALLURE is situated in a tropical, urban paradise with over 65 cafes, bars and restaurants just blocks away. The pedestrian and pet-friendly historic downtown offers unlimited options for dining and nightlife to suit any taste. Arts and culture abound in the River District where the cobblestone-streets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. ALLUREs resortstyle amenities include: a private screening room with theater-style seating; state-of-the-art gym; pool deck with heated cascading infinityedge pool overlooking the water; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards and game tables; Bocce Ball and barbeque grills on the rooftop, Pickleball by the pool, and many other luxurious features. Elegant residence features include porcelain flooring, natural gas ranges, double ovens, and quartz countertops in chef-inspired kitchens. All residences feature private entrance with high-speed elevators and include covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access. A variety of thoughtfully-designed, open floor plans priced from the high $200s to over $1 million offer one, two, and three bedrooms.
