A full and colorful complement of marching bands, Celtic dancers, bagpipers, clowns, stilt-walkers and dozens of floats will wend their way through downtown Naples from St. Anne Catholic Church on Third Street South to Fifth Avenue South and then down Eighth Street to finish at The Norris Center. Participating marching bands are coming from Cape Coral, Estero, Golden Gate, Gulf Coast, Lely, Palmetto Ridge, Rhodora J. Donahue Academy, Riverdale, South Fort Myers and St. John Neumann high schools. The St. John Neumann band will precede the parade float carrying members of the Notre Dame SEE PARADE, A12 u Last week, I ventured out on an assignment to find out just what is the state of the arts in Southwest Florida, and what does it mean to be an artist these days? I sought artists whose work I personally like and a few I didnt know at all musicians and painters, photographers, theater and film directors and put the questions to them. I roamed the region and talked with them in their studios and in coffee shops and bars. They had some very interesting things to say, although Im not sure if I ever did find out SEE ARTS, A8 uBagpipers are a parade staple.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY EXPLORE DESIGNER FURNISHINGS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDAINQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICESNAPLES SHOWROOM 7200 TRAIL BOULEVARD 239.598.3330 LOCATIONS IN FT. MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA AND TARPON SPRINGS COMMENTARYThe Tombstone PrincipleGreg Steube is a good ol young boy just shy of 40. He was born in 1978, in sunny Bradenton, nicknamed The Friendly City. Lean-looking and square jawed in his official Florida photo, with lips set in a thin line of not-quite-friendly git er done, the 23rd District Republican senator is a model gun bunny, a man who would not have seen eye-to-eye with Wyatt Earp. The senator is happy to put a gun in just about anybodys hands; in just about anyplace the anybody wants to go. Wyatt Earp would have hated that notion and found it exceedingly and dangerously foolish, but he was just a gunfighter (among other things). What did he know? Sen. Steube is not. The son of a retired Manatee County sheriff, he holds undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Florida, where he was a fraternity brother of Alpha Gamma Rho. After law school he joined the Army and served as an Army lawyer in Iraq. He spent six years in the Florida House before becoming a senator following the 2016 election. Sen. Steube wants any permitted adults who choose and Florida has 1.7 million holders of concealed carry permits who could choose to go armed into college classrooms, down the halls of high schools, middle schools, elementary schools and nursery schools, into airport terminals, into bars, into churches and libraries and city council or county commission meetings, and probably then to bed each night, armed from their toes to their teeth. Not so, Wyatt Earp. Born in 1848 in Illinois (nick-named the Prairie State), Mr. Earp spent much of his life in frontier towns with snap, as he called it Wichita and Dodge City and Tombstone, among others. There, gambling, drinking, prostitution and cow herding were common, along with guns. He favored gun control, as it turns out, especially if people he didnt like were carrying the guns, which is one reason he got into the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, on Oct. 26, 1881. As official lawmen, he and his brothers along with Doc Holliday were trying to enforce a regulation requiring people who rode into Tombstone, in Arizona Territory, to turn over their weapons to the sheriffs office or the Grand Hotel before they wandered around town drinking, gambling and fornicating. The shootout took some 30 seconds, about 60 seconds less than the shootings in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport eight weeks ago, and it worked out badly for Tom and Frank McLaury and Billy Clanton, who had violated the local gun ordinance, among other laws. They got killed. In Fort Lauderdale, an Army veteran who had flipped out in Alaska and then had his 9mm handgun confiscated and returned by police there under lax rules Sen. Steube would likely appr ove, killed five and wounded eight people before surrendering. Sen. Steube, meanwhile, has gotten into a political gunfight himself, although not much of one. Its more of a shoveling match, in which the senator has shoveled as much manure, in the form of 10 (Ten!) of 26 Republican-proposed gun laws, as he can heft and toss into Senate committees in Tallahassee. Beginning this week as the 2017 legislative session gets underway, elected officials in various committees will either have to ignore that steaming pile or shovel it into the Senate chamber and vote on it, piece by piece. So now the question becomes what you and I will do. A couple of things should be made clear, first. Wyatt Earp, Greg Steube and I each agree that all of us have an inalienable right to protect ourselves. That may be the only thing we agree on. Second, a Republican-controlled House and Senate will decide these matters, in which the National Rifle Association has played a key lobbying role in the state (as it has in Wisconsin, Tennessee, Arkansas and other states). At first glance, that would seem to lend itself to relaxed gun rules across the board not only rules dictating where you can carry a gun, but which guns and magazines you can carry or how much training and experience you require to carry them. But similar notions have presented themselves as proposed legislation in Tallahassees predominantly Republican chambers before, and failed to become law. So now we have to decide: Did Wyatt Earp know what he was talking about, or does Greg Steube have the right idea? Although the eras are different, the question is not. Do we act to prevent wackos from getting their hands on guns in the first place? Do we try to preserve places where peace and unarmed co-existence is the virtue we insist on and defend? Churches, libraries, airports and all institutions of learning come to mind. Or, conversely, do we give up on that longstanding American idea by handing everybody who wants one a gun, and calling it the Tombstone Principle? In all likelihood well answer those questions viscerally, based on our own experiences and instincts. My sense is that drunken frat boys, citizens who hold grievances against local politicians or troubled students are probably better off, just as we will be, when none of them are encouraged to carry their guns onto college campuses, into government buildings or airport terminals, or into schools or libraries. We would do well now, therefore those of us who feel that way to telephone our congressional leaders and mention that to them as the 2017 legislative session begins. Those who believe in arming up, however, should start practicing their shooting a lot more. In my experience, and I suspect in Wyatt Earps, if you dont practice all the time and you arent standing close to your target, you might well miss. And hit somebody else. n i c i a roger

By the dictum of the state constitution, the state Legislature has but one responsibility: to approve a balanced state budget. Assuming the dominant party shares broad consensus on economic principles and social policies, it follows those who are cut from the same cloth go along to get along. One-party rule is predisposed toward reaching agreement on core issues. Unanimity or the lack thereof produces weather within the states legislative system. It can be sunny and clear or dark and stormy, depending on whether and to what extent conditions are favorable for agreement among like-minded party loyalists. The status quo is predicated on which way the wind blows and how calmly. Gov. Rick Scott is a Republican and on his second term. Republicans hold a supermajority in both chambers of the Legislature. Democrats have a place at the table but control little of the legislative real estate characterizing Floridas gerrymandered districts. As members of the minority party, they provide friction in the legislative process. But they are mostly incapable of braking the substantial momentum of a conservative juggernaut emboldened by its near-absolute control. These are optimum conditions for the super majority to get its way because it can, and with no push-back of consequence. This is fair weather for deal making. Horse trading among friends and getting closure on who rides home with what, the budget a fait accompli, all within 60 days, seems a perfectly adequate amount of time to get things done. But dont count on it. You probably remember the impasse in 2015, when the Florida Senate backed an $80 billion state budget proposal inclusive of expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The House balked, rejecting the Senate proposal. Had it approved, the state would have gained more than $54 billion in funding from the federal government in future decades and approximately 800,00 poor and lowincome uninsured residents would have become newly eligible for health insurance under the program. Instead, the House did its own math. It alternatively proposed to the Senate a $76 billion state budget. The $4 billion difference between the two budgets should not have been a deal breaker but it was. Things got nasty. Negotiations collapsed. Everyone went home mad. The Legislature failed to approve the state budget for the future year. The war between Republican Titans left behind a battlefield littered with consequences. Hundreds of thousands of poor and low-income Floridians lost hope of having health insurance. Floridians pay taxes for healthcare services of no benefit to Floridians. The state lost billions in federal revenue. Residents were charged for a special legislative session, the cleanup after the party blow-out. Medicaid expansion died for good. It is budget time again in Florida. Open warfare is percolating, this time between the governor and the Legislature over state economic policy and priorities. The legislature is threatening to reduce state spending to promote tourism and downsize the millions in taxfunded subsidies to private businesses. These are Gov. Scotts sacred cows. He wants more, and bigger, not less or none. He milks the agencies job creation tally to bolster his future office-seeking plans. He makes short work of those who disagree. In his view, they are clueless in matters of business. His legislative colleagues took umbrage at the insult and escalated. They now propose legislation to completely gut Enterprise Florida, the states economic development agency; and Visit Florida, the states tourism marketing arm. Gov. Scott went ballistic. He castigated his rebellious colleagues in the press statewide, robo-called the legislators constituents and besmirched them at every opportunity as job-killers. Still, the legislators have a point. Even those who defend the tax giveaways admit that it is a necessary evil. The Orlando Sentinel quotes Alan Becker, Enterprise Floridas vice chairman, describing the competition between states as akin to an arms race in a Cold War. States pay to play the game of job creation and its not cheap. It is like shooting wads of cash out of a cannon and hoping some of it sticks. Those who are skeptical have earned the right. There is a boneyard filled with deals that cost Floridians far more than they got in return for millions in public investment. Just ask former Gov. Jeb Bush. Those fighting to eliminate the two agencies say it is about more than the money. It is about ensuring the states proper role in economic development. They argue the tax giveaway is nothing more corporate welfare, allowing the state to pick winners and lose, subsidizing some and not others. The practice breeds crony capitalism and corruption. House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes is vociferous on this point. Upon reviewing the books of the two agencies at risk, he compared the resulting financial revelations to turning on the lights in a kitchen and seeing cockroaches everywhere. It sounds like Real-Kill time in Tallahassee. Yes, deconstruct the administrative stateSteve Bannon blew a dog whistle for constitutional conservatives when he spoke of deconstructing the administrative state at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Although not everyone got the reference. Trump haters interpreted the line as an incendiary call to decimate the federal government, when the administrative state was a more specific reference to a federal bureaucracy that operates free of the normal checks of democratic accountability. The administrative state has been called the fourth branch of government. It involves an alphabet soup of executive agencies that wield legislative, executive and judicial powers and thus run outside of and counter to our constitutional system. The agencies write rules that are laws in all but name, then enforce them and adjudicate violations. Boston University law professor Gary Lawson describes how this works in the case of, for instance, the Federal Trade Commission: The Commission promulgates substantive rules of conduct. The Commission then considers whether to authorize investigations into whether the Commissions rules have been violated. If the Commission authorizes an investigation, the investigation is conducted by the Commission, which reports its findings to the Commission. If the Commission thinks that the Commissions findings warrant an enforcement action, the Commission issues a complaint. The Commissions complaint that a Commission rule has been violated is then prosecuted by the Commission and adjudicated by the Commission. Welcome to government by commission. James Madison called such an undifferentiated accumulation of powers, which the Constitution is meant to avoid, the very definition of tyranny. The administrative state is the friend of anyone hoping to aggrandize government. President Barack Obama would have been hobbled without it. He used the Environmental Protection Agency and the Federal Communications Commission to institute sweeping new regulatory regimes on carbon emissions and the internet. He imposed his preferred social policies on schools and universities through dear colleague letters issued by middling bureaucrats. The administrative state was exactly what he needed a way to govern without Congress. A hostility to the administrative state isnt necessarily a natural for Trump, who isnt a limited-government conservative or a constitutional purist. Yet he campaigned against regulation, he scorns the elite, and federal bureaucrats have already made clear their desire to frustrate his plans. Dethroning the administrative state fits into a populist program to restore power to the people through their elected representatives. It is chiefly Congress that needs to reassert itself. It has delegated its legislative powers over the decades, and needs to pull them back. As Adam White writes in an essay for City Journal, it should pass the REINS Act to require congressional approval for major new regulations. It should revisit laws like the Clean Air Act and the Communications Act of 1934 that give regulators too much leeway. It should limit the deference that courts give to administrative agencies. None of this is the stuff of fire and brimstone, rather the mundane work of sl owly lurching the wheels of the federal government back onto a constitutional track. Something as entrenched as the administrative state wont be deconstructed in one presidential term, or two. If it can be dialed back, though, it will be a significant victory for old-fashioned representative government.

As the youngest elected official in Collier County history, he champions policies that protect the quality of life in Naples. He has previously served on the Naples Redevelopment Agency and the Collier County Metropolitan Planning Organization, and he currently serves as vice chair of the Naples Redevelopment Agency.

Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at, where hundreds of past shows are archived for listeners convenience. Mentors: I am inspired by a lot of people who came to America seeking a better life and succeeded, the principal people being my grandfather, who immigrated from Lebanon at 6 years old and rose through the ranks of the Maytag Corp. after putting himself through correspondence school, and my father, who built a business selling auto parts in Omaha, Neb. Where did you grow up? I grew up in Omaha and stayed there until I was 26 years old and moved to Naples. Something your mother was always right about: A place for everything and everything in its place. She got that from her mom. When and why did you rst come to Naples/ Collier County, and what was your rst impression? I rst came to Naples when my parents decided to retire here. I recall going to see the vacant lot they were going to build on in Grey Oaks and staying at The Ritz-Carlton on the beach over Thanksgiving in 1999. I was not immediately sold on the place since I was a diehard Nebraska fan. Now, I cant imagine living anywhere else. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? An engineer. I loved playing with Legos. My moms dad used to show me the mega-projects he built in Milwaukee as an engineer. I always thought I would be good at building cities. First job: A lifeguard in Omaha. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? If I werent lawyer, Id be selling real estate with my mom. Guilty pleasure: Chocolate chip cookies Next vacation: We are going lobstering off Marathon Key in August. I expect to catch the days limit every day. One thing on your bucket list: After lobstering in the Keys, I want to dive the wall at Little Cayman. I hope to do that for my 40th birthday. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I were a better spear sherman. Advice for someone just starting in your line of work: Just dont do it! There are too many lawyers in Florida these days. The better long-term work is in the STEM elds. If you are going to become a lawyer, know how to program, too. Advice for your kids: Theyre young. I tell them to learn to read and write well. From there, you can do anything. Best thing about kids: They wake up every day full of wonder. I love seeing that in their eyes. Trait you most admire in your best friend: His work ethic. Nobody works harder or is more focused than my buddy Ryan. Favorite app on your smartphone or tablet: Dominos. Something thats been on your mind: Growth is out of control in Naples, but theres not much we can do about it unless we plan a major policy shift on the County Commission. Must-see place to take rst-time visitors: Third Street South for shopping and dining. What makes you laugh? My wife. She is about the funniest person in the whole world. Last book read: The Generals: Military Command from World War II to Today by Winston Groom. All-time favorite movie: Dumb and Dumber. I can watch it over and over. Something youll never understand: Liberals! Something you wish could go back to the way it once was: I wish Fifth Avenue South were still the main street and not a tourist destination. Pet peeve: People who complain about their station but dont do anything about it. This is America. You can be whatever you want to be, you just have to work. What are you most proud of? Building my law rm. Something the Paradise Coast really needs: Real economic diversi cation. That means we need to think hard about what businesses we want to come here and provide what they need. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: I love the water. I nd great mystery in the back bays and the mangrove forests. I love to fantasize about what is must have been like to discover this place hundreds of years ago. Talking points with Sam Saad III

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTSFrom page 1what the state of the arts is here or what the local art scene is all about. If I had to guess, I would say the arts are strong and growing. Here are edited transcripts of what 10 artists told me and where you can see their work. MICHELLE TRICCA, 47Ms. Tricca is a photographer whose often playful images are imbued with soulful empathy, whether they are of young roommates in a house in San Diego or, more recently, our elders here in Southwest Florida. I caught up with her at Second Cup coffee shop in Mercato, where she told me about how she once filled a wall with faces and how that segued in to one of her latest projects. My largest project, A Face in the Crowd, was in 2011. I photographed a thousand portraits and plastered them to the side of an industrial building in Naples. My motivation was that I wanted to do a photographic tribute to human diversity. I was living in this conservative town of retirees I love going to Miami and seeing the bold art and different usage of space like walls for art. So, this wall is actually in my neighborhood in East Naples. I would drive by every day and would just see this blank wall as a canvas. I thought, Gosh, I would love to show large photographs on there. I want to show that Naples is not the rich white-guy golfer town that its promoted to be. I put this project out there and the whole town came together to help me produce it. I had so much support from the community. This ended up being up for nine months, 24 hours a day. A lot of cool stories came out of it. Neighbors were meeting each other. It was awesome. I had no plan for this, no estimation of the o utcome, but it ended up being a really positive thing. It ended up getting defaced and vandalized on my Facebook page, theres a gallery of images of the vandalism. They drew a big penis on me. They put swastikas. They put Xs through the black peoples faces. They wrote F--Naples Police. So that got a whole new wave of press (that was) basically showing that I was trying to do a positive thing for the community to make a discussion about, you know, social change and community and diversity. So at the end of the day this project is memorable. People remember this and it was good. Because of this I thought, wow, that made me feel great. I used my skill and my desire to create this story. It was like a humanitarian art project told through my medium of photography. Shortly after this I thought, well, what can I possibly do now? I was still working, getting hired to do the things I love One day at a Chinese restaurant I got my fortune cookie and opened it up and the fortune said, Listen to the wisdom of the old.

Find out more about Ms. Tricca and her work at www.michelletricca. com.HUNTER DAHLEN, 23Mr. Dahlen studies music performance at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Bower School of Music and the Arts. The viola is his primary instrument. Hes also a guitarist, songwriter and singer who performs with his jazz band, Apollos Phonograph, every Thursday evening at Point Ybel Brewing Company in south Fort Myers. Thats where I caught up with him on a Tuesday open-mic night, where he performed his new song, Heres to You, for the first time on a Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman model guitar. Q: Who is one of your favorite composers? A: I think probably my favorite is Johann Sebastian Bach I really like his Brandenburg Concertos, the one that features the viola, No. 6. Q: Who are a few of your other big influences? A: Im really influenced by a lot of the great jazz guitar players Joe Pass Barney Kessel, a more modern guy. Russell Malone, or even someone like Chet Atkins, who is not necessarily jazz but just a phenomenal guitar player. Q: Tell me about the song you played tonight? A: I wrote that song just over a week ago. It was about a girl I had met. Shes a traveling musician, so she was only here for a certain amount of time. I kind of fell in love with her, and then she was back out on the road. That was kind of the sentiment behind that whole tune. Heres to the girl that got away and the love that cannot be and all that. Q: What was your approach to actually writing the song? How do you do it? A: I wrote it more of just a poem at first, just the lyrics. And once I had that, I figured out what rhythm I wanted to put to it, and then the chord harmonies that would go behind the singing. It was the lyrics first, then the music. I wrote it with the intention of doing it with Apollos Phonograph. Q: Was this the first time youve played it in front of people? A: Yeah, other than the girl I wrote it for. Q: Really? What did she think of it? A: She liked it. She loves it. Q: Do you think youll stay in touch? A: Yeah, probably. Yes. Learn more about Hunter Dahlen at SANDRO DE LA ROSA, 44Mr. de la Rosa grew up in Havana, Cuba, and recently moved to Naples. He studied at San Alejandro, the National School of Fine Arts in Havana, and his works have been exhibited in New York, Texas, Chicago, California and elsewhere. His paintings have for years been found at Cernuda Arte, a gallery of Cuban and Latin American art in Miamis Coral Gables neighborhood. When we spoke it was nearing 4 p.m., the waning hours of a Saturday outdoor arts festival at Cambier Park. Q: What brings you to Naples and the United States? A: I have been working with a gallery for 10 years in Miami, living in Cuba. I recently just moved for Naples. Q: Tell me a little bit about your work and the inspiration for some of your pieces. A: This is more about my life in Cuba, you know, the poverty, the hope and the reality in Cuba. Thats my inspiration, and my daughter. My daughter is the same character in all the pieces. Q: What do you see as the state of the arts scene here in Naples? Is it lacking in opportunities? Is it thriving? A: I dont have a point of view yet because its too soon I see here more beach-y art. But I find some people interested in my work because it is unique, different. And you never know. Q: What does it mean to be an artist? A: To be an artist is an act of faith. Q: That makes sense. So, are you keeping the faith? A: Yes, yes, all the time. Because Im living for my art many years. I have sold many paintings. Its not like Van Gogh, no, hes only sold one painting. Ive sold many paintings all my life. Q: When did you know that you would be an artist, that this is what you were going to do with your life? A: I realize I become an artist when I leave the School of Art, that I have all the instruments and know who I am as a person, you know, and thats in some way a start, when I finish the school. But I created something stronger when I had my body of work completed and when I was doing my first exhibition in Miami.

Later during his performance, the word prodigy was passed around the bar by a few stunned patrons. Q: What are you listening to now that you really love? A: I listen to a lot of folk music. I listen to a lot of big band jazz music like Benny Goodman or Louis Prima or Glenn Miller, those types. Q: What are your plans? A: Two years ago I hit more than 101 gigs. Last year I had 127.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NEWS A9few years. What Id like to do is break out more into the festival circuit maybe around Florida, or play a little bit more outside Florida again. Q: Do you find Southwest Florida to be a good place (for being a musician)? A: Having played now in Dallas, Austin, Nashville, Memphis, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Tampa this Southwest Florida area, I mean, its great because there are a lot of venues all over the place for all types of music that you want to play. I mean, Im very happy Im in the area Im in. My reputation is growing where its better to be a big fish in a little pond than a little fish in a big pond. And I find the musicians around here are very friendly, a lot of good people, and Ive been able to establish a good fan base. Q: But obviously, Southwest Florida isnt Nashville. A: Right, but the problem with Nashville is nobodys from Nashville, you know? Where you get a million musicians that are all fantastic its hard to stick out at that point. Ive met musicians that go on tour with those bands for six weeks and then go back to Nashville and hang out and just play for food in some cases. Thats pretty much what I did when I was out there. Q: It has to be exciting, though, to be around that much good music. A: Oh, yeah, it was so exciting. It was great when I was 14 years old, 15 years old holding my own with these 30-year-old musicians and I could say, OK, Im doing pretty good for myself right now. Ive just grown from that as well to be able to hone my guitar playing skills, my vocals and make my career go to the next step from there. Q: What does it mean to be an artist now? A: First thing that comes to my head is that people say, Well, why do you play covers? Why dont you play originals? And I do have a few originals, but I feel like being an artist is being able to take somebody elses music, too, and put your own flavor onto it. You can see that with Stevie Ray Vaughan, where he took the craziness of Jimi Hendrix and the extreme blues nature of Albert King and kind of put them together and made his own unique sound that people say, well, he took inspiration from this, this, and this. Thats what I like to do: take inspiration and then create create, I mean thats what an artist does, he creates my own sound whether Im playing covers or not. Learn more about Mike Imbasciani at BRADY, 28Ms. Brady is a director, actor, musician and playwright. She founded Ghostbird Theatre Company in 2012. The company specializes in site-specific performances in Southwest Florida. Last year, Ms. Brady directed Anne Carsons Antigonick at artist Marcus Jansens studio in a warehouse on the edge of the downtown Fort Myers. In this modern telling of the ancient Antigone, audience members were free to wander where the action was taking place in different rooms simultaneously. Ghostbirds next production is No. 27, an original play by company members Barry Cavin and Katelyn Gravel. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 27-29 and May 4-6, at Shangri-La Springs in Bonita Springs. Q: What is site-specific theater? A: The space informs the production and the production informs the space. Theyre in conversation. With Antigonick, it was just fascinating to be able to kind of wander into different rooms I like to encourage audience members when I can to soften around any impulses they might have to make sense of what theyre seeing. I think often times were trying to problem solve because thats what were used to doing. (And) thats fine and good, but there are also more subjective, internalized kinds of discoveries we can make that dont involve that kind of thing Im not about just producing stuff for the sake of something thats contentless or nonsense. Certainly Antigone has a plot that was very present in our production. We used space and also sort of riffed off of what Anne Carson was doing in her translation, which was anachronisms and all of these things in order to destabilize the reception of the piece. And that was so audience members wouldnt see what theyd always seen in Antigone, which is an ancient play Antigonick did not reaffirm for them what they know about the world. That isnt what theater does when its doing its best. Its supposed to, I think, have us question those preconceived notions and possibly make discoveries. Q: What inspires you? A: Im intrigued by the notions of stillness and chaos and the kind of juxtaposition those two things have Virginia Woolf talks about the wave as one of her favorite metaphors because its sort of this building, this coming together of these forces, the kind of peak, and then it washes away. I like that metaphor for this life, and I return to it within my own work, this idea of temporality. Q: You grew up in Cape Coral. Whats the state of the arts in your hometown? A: A fairly diverse group of artists are contributing to making it a great place for the arts, and were happy to be part of that Its easy when its your hometown. Theres this narrative thats gone on for ages, that you better leave. Youve got to depart and go out on a journey and a quest and make a discovery and all of that. And I think theres merit in that and certainly you should go out and see the world and have as many influences as possible but theres nothing keeping you from making wonderful discoveries and finding sources of inspiration here as well.

He works as a sales executive and she is a pharmacy tech. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon, during which I had an entire exhibition of Robert Indianas work all to myself for what seemed like a long time. Mr. Indiana was famous for arranging the letters L-O-V-E in a square with the O tilted forward. A brochure said he was also known for his use of serigraph or silkscreen printmaking (like Andy Warhol). I chatted with Mr. Darousse and Ms. Kennedy under a Dale Chihuly chandelier across the courtyard from the Indiana exhibit (through May 3). They had just come from visiting The Baker Museums Olga Hirshhorn Collection (through July 23) that includes works by Picasso, de Kooning, OKeefe and others. More information: baker-museum Q: Who are some of the artists youve loved over the years? MK: All the big ones Monet and Picasso. JD: My personal favorites would be musicians. They were also artists Antonio Vivaldi, Bach. Q: Do you have a favorite work? JD: Honestly, I would probably say (Beethovens) 9th Symphony is my favorite. It calms me down. I love it. Q: How about you? A: MK: I do enjoy the Impressionists works more than the others, I think. Q: For people who arent professional artists, what does it mean to be an artist in todays world? MK: Its a form of expression, I think. JD: I agree. Its a form of expression, having the ability to see what others cant see, whether its finding the beauty, darkness or truth about something An artist is someone who creates something extremely different and unusual, to the point where it will stand out. For example, it could be as simple as leaving your glasses on the floor and people thinking its art.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELChicago proves we are still in our car wonder yearsIn the classic TV show The Wonder Years, there was an episode that centered on the family buying a new car. The idea was that dad got to be the king of the block as the new rubber rolled through the neighborhood. The Arnolds new family car was nothing too special just a late 1960s Ford Custom sedan (Ford sold hundreds of thousands just like it). But on The Wonder Years, that car highlighted the pride that came from showing off something new and shiny. A neighbor might have had something comparable, but yours had just enough different features to make it individually yours. This episode is worth mentioning because today theres a sense that this king-of-the-neighborhood feeling is fading, at least as far as how a new car can instill that pride. Then came the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.The Windy Citys expo is not one of the most important places for car premieres, but it occupies one of the largest spaces and is one of the best attended. That means its a venue with a lot of potential customers. This year, the unspoken theme was individuality. Nissan used the Chicago Auto Show to premiere a whole new lineup of vehicles that get special Midnight Edition trim. Its a factory package that takes traditionally bright areas and turns them black. Once exclusive to the executive-level Maxima, it has spread to the Sentra and Altima sedans, as well as the Rogue, Murano and Pathfinder crossovers. All of them get blacked-out wheels, front diffusers and side mirrors; the sedans get black spoilers, while the crossovers get dark roof rails. The Midnight Edition costs less than $1,200 on any of the five newly announced vehicles but sometimes it requires higher trim levels to be purchased first. Buyers get an appearance thats distinctive but far from revolutionary which makes it seem like a good package for people who covet their neighbors Nissan but who still want to feel unique enough to wear the neighborhood crown for a day. Also at the Nissan stand was an NV Cargo van customized to be a true 4x4 with a lifted suspension and big mudslinging tires. This isnt a factory kit, but they were showcasing what a company called Quigley does for their customers. And this wasnt just limited to Nissan. Ford also had a Quigley version of the four-row Transit van that looked like it was ready to go from an airport run directly to a swamp excursion. Not to be outdone by Nissans Midnight Edition, Chevrolet introduced Redline packaging on just about every vehicle except the Corvette. These cars feature darker details that are outlined in red. As a way to bring some sporty appearance appeal to the mid and lower trim levels, it should only cost about $1,000 more per vehicle (except on the Silverado pick-up, which also gets functional items like a bed liner). Volkswagens Atlas crossover is still weeks away from being available at dealers, but at the Chicago Auto Show the carmaker was already showing off a new version of the three-row full-size crossover. The aptly named Weekend Concept was built with all the accessories a family might want to use in their free time, from an integrated LED light bar for a night out camping to a soccer ball bearing the VW logo. The company will likely never build a Weekend Concept version of the Atlas, but instead, this was a showcase for all the different ways customers can separate their vehicle from the ones in their neighbors driveways. It seemed every major manufacturer had something individualized to show off. Toyota introduced the RAV4 Adventure, which like the Midnight Edition Nissans, offers a more aggressive blacked-out treatment. Dodge gave the Durango family hauler a muscle-car makeover with a new SRT package that makes the three-row, 475-hp SUV powerful enough to outrun the school bus every morning. Perhaps we are still in our own automotive wonder years, afterall. Volkswagens Atlas outfitted with the Weekend Concept package. Toyotas Rav4 Adventure gets the blacked-out treatment. A Ford Transit van with sporty extras from a company named Quigley. A Chevy Malibu with the Redline packaging. The Midnight Edition trim is available on several Nissan models, including the new Maxima.

These criminals generally target senior citizens at their homes by posing as tree trimmers, appliance repair workers or contractors pointing to a problem with a roof. Heres how a recent incident in Pelican Bay unfolded: The 86-year-old victim told deputies he was in his back yard around 4 p.m. when he was approached by a man who said he needed to check the water pressure inside the residence due to some work going on in the street. The victim led the suspect inside his house to a bathroom to check the water pressure. The suspect was left unattended for about five minutes while the victim was in another room. The suspect left the residence without telling the victim. The victim became suspicious and walked outside to check the street and did not see anyone working. Although the victim initially didnt notice anything out of place, his further investigation revealed several pieces of jewelry had been stolen from inside the residence. Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect. An investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to call the CCSO at 252-9300 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at (800) 780-8477.Safety tips from the CCSO Be suspicious of workers who arrive unannounced. Never allow a stranger to come into your house. Be cautious about anyone who tries to lure you out of your house to another part of your property. Insist on identification and call the company. Have the person wait outside. Use a number from the phone book, not one given to you by the worker. Always notify CCSO when you see someone going from door to door trying to sell a service or product, even if they appear to be legitimate. Let deputies confirm their occupational license or the validity of their company. Remember, if its too good to be true, it probably is. And finally, if you are worried about a suspicious stranger, call 911 immediately and give a description of the individual.

Proceeds help the Naples St. Patrick Foundation put on the parade year after year and also enable the foundation to award grants to high school bands that participate in the parade. Two new pipe bands join the parade lineup for 2017: The FDNY Emerald Society Pipes & Drums and the Babylon Fire Department Drum Corps. All nine members of the Happy Jazz Marching Band, will play Irish music in a Dixieland way, according to director and longtime member Jim Gover. We wont be as loud as the high school marching bands that have hundreds of members, he laughs. But youll hear some snappy music, he promises. On the playlist: Danny Boy, When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, MacNamaras Band, Harrigan and, of course, When the Saints Go Marching In. Some of the jazz bands members have been in many Naples St. Patricks Day Parades over the decades. Were happy and lively and just as Irish as ever, Mr. Gover says. Grand Marshal Jerry Sanford is a New York City firefighter who retired to Naples and became the public information officer for North Naples Fire & Rescue.

She is also a rosebud for the Florida Center for the International Rose of Tralee Festival, an annual Irish celebration. The Flanagan-OHare School of Irish Dance was established in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., in 1981, under the direction of Michael Flanagan and Elaine OHare and Geraldine French. The school now also operates studios in Savannah, Ga., Augusta, Ga., and in Naples on Trade Center Way. Dancers from the Naples school will perform jigs and reels in the parade. Dancers from The Celtic Spirit School of Irish Dance will perform atop the schools 38-foot float. Owners Claire and Catherine Gorman have participated in the Naples St. Patricks Day Parade for more than 15 years. It was the schools performance three years ago that earned them an invitation from the Lord Mayor of Cork, Ireland, to participate in the towns 2015 St. Patricks Day Parade. Before the start of the parade, the 22nd annual Naples St. Patricks Day flag-raising ceremony will take place at 9:30 a.m. at The Dock at Crayton Cove in honor of veterans, active duty military and public safety personnel. Mary Jo ORegan will sing the Irish national anthem. With thanks to underwriting by Vin DePasquale, complimentary coffee and Danish will be served. The Naples St. Patricks Day Parade is the largest privately funded parade in Florida. It draws more than 40,000 people to downtown Naples each year to celebrate Irish heritage and Irish culture in America.

The funds raised help the Conservancy of Southwest Floridas continued work to protect the water, land, wildlife and future of our area.Immokalee students grateful for fun money scholarhipsTen post-secondary students with The Immokalee Foundation recently received fun money scholarships through the Massoud and Isabella Eghrari Charitable Foundation. Dr. Massoud Eghrari and his late wife, Isabella, knew from their personal experiences how difficult it is pursuing an education and career. So, in addition to funding scholarships for higher education through TIF, they established $500 scholarships for first-year post-secondary students that each student can use for whatever they wish. Recognizing the hard work of the students and the financial challenges they frequently face in their first year of studies the Eghraris wanted to reward them in a unique manner, which they refer to as fun money. I am extremely grateful for the extra money, because being a full-time student doesnt allow for a lot of extras, said Naidelyn Maldonado, who attends Florida SouthWestern State College as a Take Stock in Children scholarship recipient through TIF. A retired surgeon who moved to Southwest Florida from New York eight years ago, Dr. Eghrari and his wife, Tayebeh, are strong supporters of education and the work of TIF. This nonprofit is involved in educating underprivileged children, Dr. Eghrari said. It provides them a new life, makes them wise and useful members of society. Many of them return to Immokalee and share what they have learned. You dont have to wait a generation to see what a difference the scholarships make. To receive the fun money, students completed an application with general information and an essay stating what they would do with the money if they received it. To support the spirit of the award, the students are required to spend the funds on themselves rather than others. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Get the home state advantage.Time to starting watching for nesting sea turtlesMarch is the beginning of Floridas sea turtle nesting season, when female sea turtles leave the ocean to dig nests and lay golf ballsize eggs in the sand. People can help sea turtles that nest on Floridas beaches at night by leaving the beach as natural as possible. To do this, beachgoers should remove beach furniture and other obstacles before sunset each day. Anyone spending time on Floridas beaches can do something to help save Floridas threatened and endangered sea turtles. Peoples actions on the beach can have a positive impact on whether our loggerhead, leatherback and green sea turtles nest successfully, said Robbin Trindell, who leads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission sea turtle management program. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, remember to take beach furniture, boats and canopies off Floridas sandy beaches at night so these items wont block sea turtles attempting to nest, Ms. Trindell said. When departing at the end of the day, beach visitors should fill any holes dug in the sand so nesting and hatchling turtles dont become trapped. Please be careful not to disturb nesting sea turtles by getting too close, shining lights on them or taking flash photos. Along the gulf coast, sea turtle nesting season starts in late April or May. In the 2016 sea turtle nesting season, more than 120,000 loggerhead nests, more than 5,000 green turtle nests and more than 1,000 leatherback nests were documented by the FWC. With Florida hosting nearly 90 percent of loggerhead nests within this species northern Atlantic Ocean population, the state plays an important role in its conservation. You can help sea turtles by reporting those that are sick, injured, entangled or dead to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline, (888) 404-3922.

Suspicions confirmedDespite Californias 2015 law aimed at improving the fairness of its redlight cameras, the city of Fremont (pop. 214,000, just north of San Jose) reported earning an additional $190,000 more each month last year by shortening the yellow light by two-thirds of a second at just two intersections. Tickets went up 445 percent at one and 883 percent at the other. (In November 2016, for undisclosed reasons, the city raised the speed limit on the street slightly, allowing it to reinstate the old 0.7-second-longer yellow light.)Some recurring themes Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, convicted and given a 20-year sentence in 2012 for firing a warning shot into a wall to fend off her abusive estranged husband, finally had the charges dropped in February. The persnickety trial judge had earlier determined that Floridas notorious Stand Your Ground law did not apply, even though the husband admitted that he was threatening to rough up Alexander and that she never aimed the gun at him. (With that defense not allowed, Alexander was doomed under Floridas similarly notorious 20-year mandatory sentence for aggravated assault using a gun.) In 2008, Vince Li, a passenger on a Greyhound bus in Canada, stabbed another passenger, then beheaded him and started to eat him, and in 2009 was convicted but not criminally responsible because of schizophrenia. He has been institutionalized and under treatment since then, and in February, doctors signed off on an absolute r elease back into society for Li (now known as Will Baker) declining a conditional release, which would have required continued monitoring. Manitoba province law requires absolute discharge if doctors conclude, on the weight of the evidence, that the patient is no longer a significant safety threat.Least-competent criminals Alvin Neal, 56, is merely the most recent bank robber to begin the robbery sequence (at a Wells Fargo branch in San Diego) after identifying himself to a teller (by swiping his ATM card through a machine at the counter). He was sentenced in January. Failing to think through their crime was the group of men who decided to snatch about $1,200 from the Eastside Grillz tooth-jewelry shop in St. Paul, Minn., in February. They fled despite two of them having already provided ID and one having left a mold of his teeth.No longer weird Matthew Mobley, 41, was arrested in Alexandria, La., in February (No. 77 on his rap sheet) after getting stuck in the chimney of a business he was breaking into. Former postal worker Gary Collins, 53, of Forest City, N.C., pleaded guilty in February to having hoarded deliverable U.S. mail as far back as 2000. (He is far from the worst mail hoarder, by volume, that News of the Weird has mentioned.)Luckiest (bewildered) animals In December, a 400-pound black bear at the Palm Beach zoo (Clark) got a root canal from dentist Jan Bellows, to fix a painful fractured tooth. In January, a pet ferret (Zelda) in Olathe, Kan., received a pacemaker from Kansas State University doctors, who said Zelda should thus be able to live the ferrets normal life span. In January, an overly prolific male African tortoise (Bert), of Norwich, England, who had developed arthritis from excessive mounting, was fitted with wheels on the back of his shell to ease stress on his legs.

Tarpon season was in full swing, so he spent most of his time not at school or work, but out on the water in his Hobie kayak. I didnt meet my goal, but I landed more than 20 tarpon, more than 100 pounds each; as you can imagine, this aggravated my already painful wrist and forced me to wear a brace when not fishing, Mr. Thompson says. I was stubborn and used it, dealing with the pain, until classes resumed in August. I had to take five courses, all writing intensive; thats when I could no longer ignore it. He underwent a surgical procedure to repair a triangular fibrocartilage complex tear in his right wrist. After surgery, Mr. Thompsons surgeon, Dr. Sandra Collins, recommended occupational and certified hand therapist Paul Zavala. As one of 6,284 certified hand therapists worldwide, Mr. Zavala specializes in advanced treatment of hands and upper extremity, and provides therapy to elite and professional athletes. Conner had pain in his right dominant wrist, and weakness gripping his fishing pole, along with writing, he says. Diagnosing the exact cause of a wrist injury can be difficult as many factors can lead to wrist pain. I work a lot with power tools, wrenches and machetes on my lawn tractors, trucks, ATVs and swamp buggy, Mr. Thompson says. Paul said too much torqueing force could have caused my injury. His wrist was immobilized in a custom arm brace after surgery, and therapy reduced swelling and pain. Next, his brace was shortened to only support the wrist; therapy maximized his range of motion and strengthened the wrist, to prepare for a full release from his brace and return to regular daily activity, Mr. Zavala explains. He is now in his third phase of therapy to prepare him for the advanced demands on his wrist during kayak fishing. This also involves advanced strengthening and conditioning, activity simulation, along with education on injury prevention. Mr. Thompson has adjusted to primarily using his opposite hand, for now, and is gradually reintroducing his affected hand to activities. I havent touched a wrench or power tool since surgery because I know I will find a way to use both hands and hurt it before its healed, he says. Ive pretty much learned to be left handed, so Im back to doing almost everything I was doing before. Twice a week, he meets with Mr. Zavala for therapy. My schedule is packed, so Im grateful he works with me as much as possible, Mr. Thompson says. The injured wrist has not slowed him down one bit; he is still dedicated to his passions. Everyone looks at me weird when I tell them I still kayak and fish as often as possible, he says. But thats why the Hobie and FGCU kayak fishing teams keep me around.

The science isnt there. Yet BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWe bet you know at least one person who shares his or her stash with a pet. Not to get the animal high, but to relieve anxiety, nausea or pain from cancer or another ailment. But does it really work? Thats hard to say. Anecdotes aside, no research to date shows any benefit of marijuana for dogs or cats. Only minimal research is available on its effects in humans. Thats because federal law classifies it as a Schedule I drug with no medical usefulness. Regulatory restrictions hamper researchers ability to study marijuanas potential benefits for humans or animals. In theory, cannabinoids the chemical compounds found in marijuana carry great promise, says Robin Downing, DVM, a pain management expert and hospital director at the Downing Center for Animal Pain Management in Windsor, Colo. Dogs and cats possess cannabinoid receptors. Think of them as the lock into which cannabinoid molecules fit like keys. These are exquisitely specific receptors that do not interact with other molecules, Dr. Downing says. Unlike THC, cannabinoids are not involved in altered mentation, but they are credited with other actions in the nervous system, such as pain relief and relief of seizure activity. This is what gives us hope that medical marijuana will at some point become an important tool in the pain management toolbox, she says. That cant happen, though, until the drug is better understood. Right now, little is known about dosing and delivery of medical marijuana to pets. The idea of treating pet ailments with marijuana may give rise to the image of coming home to a dog or cat whos chowing down on Doritos and listening to Bob Marley. The truth is, we dont know a lot about how pets respond to marijuana because they cant tell us how they feel. For animals, we have no safety data, no efficacy data and no dosing data, Dr. Downing says. For example, she says, humans can adjust their doses based on their response to a drug, but animals cannot. How do we know what they are feeling? How can we tell when they have received enough to create whatever effect we seek for them? At veterinary emergency hospitals, marijuana is the number-one intoxicant for pets, especially in states such as California, Colorado and Washington, which have legalized medical and recreational marijuana. A retrospective study published in 2012 looked at cases in two Colorado veterinary hospitals from 2005 to 2010. Researchers found that the incidence of marijuana toxicosis in dogs increased fourfold over the period. Our numbers have been increasing for several years, says veterinary toxicologist Tina Wismer, director of the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. Many vets are able to diagnose the typical patient wobbly and dribbling urine on sight. Typical incidents include eating an owners baked goods that contain marijuana or THC-laced butter or coconut oil, eating the actual plants or inhaling smoke. The edibles are much more dangerous due to the concentration of THC when compared to plant material, Dr. Wismer says.Do pets who partake get the munchies? Usually not. Signs of toxicity include glassy eyes, incoordination, dilated pupils and vomiting, usually within an hour or less or ingestion or inhalation. Because of marijuanas Schedule I status, veterinarians cannot legally prescribe the drug. That doesnt mean related products arent available, though. Companies sell hemp tinctures, edibles and extracts formulated for pets. While hemp and marijuana are both derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, hemp is defined as containing a concentration of no more than 0.3 percent THC. Dr. Downing worries about variability in levels of active ingredients and lack of regulation. We are a long way from being at a place where we can in good conscience recommend marijuana for animals.

Custom Architectural Design & Interior Design Available! THE DIVA DIARIESInstead of a movie, try a bowling alley or a bar on a first date Going on a first/blind date this Saturday he wants me to choose a movie. He doesnt like chick flicks; I dont like action films. Any suggestions? This Facebook query came from a single girlfriend last week and generated myriad comments 60 to be exact. Several people thought that she and her date might bond over the latest Shades of Grey installment, but mercifully that idea was quickly struck down. A few of her friends actually suggested the animated Lego Batman as a safe bet. And while possibilities like Hidden Figures (historical), La La Land (musical), and Manchester by the Sea (depressing) were bandied about, the overwhelming consensus was to skip the movie and go to a bowling alley, a miniature golf course or a bar. Agreeing on a movie is a tall order for most couples and probably isnt the best idea for a first date. The idea is to get to know each other, not to sit in the dark, staring at a screen. After all, theres plenty of time for that after youre married. Like my friend and her date, my husband likes action movies and I prefer chick flicks. But when Todd and I first started seeing each other, we were much more amenable to each others tastes in film. We watched a lot of movies, but since we both worked crazy hours, it was usually in either his apartment or mine, and it was always DVDs. So, when he brought over a bottle of wine and his copy of Gladiator, I was all, Oh, how neat! I love seeing dudes being impaled! But, it went the other way, too when I happily trotted over to his place with Bridget Jones Diary and nachos with cheese dip, he was totally game. Falling in love means opening yourself up to what your partner likes you may not end up loving it, but at least you gave it a chance. Im not crazy about old James Bond flicks from the s, but when Todd wanted to share them with me, I got into the retro vibe of Goldfinger and Dr. No. And to his credit, Todd was willing to sit through (and discuss at length) any obscure indie documentary I subjected him to and, trust me, there were a LOT. Now that were well into our 10th year of marriage, weve reached a happy medium when it comes to choosing movies. If my husband wants to watch Matt Damons latest Jason Bourne offering, hell usually do it when Im at an evening event he grills a manly steak (I dont eat red meat), opens a bottle of Pinot Noir, and settles in for an evening of testosterone-fueled car chases. Meanwhile, if hes golfing with the boys on a Sunday afternoon, thats the perfect time for me to tear into a box of Thin Mints while watching The Crown on Netflix. Together, we recently enjoyed this years Best Picture winner, Moonlight, as well as Hell or High Water, and Sully compromise is key. As for my friend on Facebook, she and her blind date went for cocktails and appetizers and spared themselves the conundrum of choosing a movie theyd both agree on. Hopefully, they can postpone major life decisions like that until at least the third or the fourth date. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFor proof of the profound impact teachers can have on their students, look no further than Kathy Bigham, president and CEO of Bigham Jewelers. It was her seventh grade choir instructor and basketball coach in suburban Cleveland whose choice of fashion accessories sparked an interest in Ms. Bigham that led to her career choice. I had a teacher who wore the most magnificent jewelry, which began my interest in jewelry, says Ms. Bigham, who founded her business in 1995 after moving to Naples from Ohio. From its start in a 2,800-square-foot, strip mall storefront, Bigham Jewelers has grown to the point that it now occupies an 8,000-square-foot, diamondshaped, stand-alone building dubbed the Bigham Galleria on U.S. 41. Shortly after its 2005 opening, InStore Magazine selected it as the Coolest Jewelry Store in America for being a luxurious, but ultra-cool store where customer service has never felt or looked so good. Combining her passion for jewelry and a burning desire to have her own independent family business became a goal during Ms. Bighams youth. Its a decision she hasnt regretted. I love jewelry, she says. I wanted to be able to wear and share it, and I wanted to be able to get into a business that I was passionate about. I wanted to be able to get up in the morning and say, Wow, I get to do this every day, and to share in peoples special occasions all year long. Entrepreneurship appealed to her for several reasons.

You step into the Money Cube like a person entering an old-time phone booth, and close the door. Suddenly the wind starts blowing and bills good old American greenbacks in various denominations fill the air. You grab as many as you can before the wind stops. When you open the door and step back out, youre richer. Thats the nature of the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce too, where about 950 members have stepped in, only to become more knowledgeable, more prosperous, and more attuned to the merchant life of one of Floridas most vibrant communities. Best of all, the Money Cube is not just figurative not just a metaphor but literal and real, like the Bonita Area Chamber. And its free to all for a few hours this week. A presentation of the Achieva Credit Union, the Money Cube will be open from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, March 9, at the chambers annual Community Business Expo, sponsored by the Promenade at Bonita Bay, the city of Bonita Springs, and Royal Shell Real Estate, Rentals and Vacations. The Expo will take place at the Promenade at Bonita Bay. Weve worked on this Expo for six months, says Tiffany Esposito, president and CEO of the chamber which includes members from as far south as Marco Island and as far north as North Fort Myers, she says. As vendors, our members can showcase products or services and reach crowds they normally wouldnt have access to. And as attendees, they can come out and see so much of what Bonita offers.

I really wanted to be able to have the flexibility to have a family and to be able to create jobs for my own family and for others, she said. I think family businesses are something that is more and more difficult to pass on. She is the product of a working-class background. I didnt grow up with much, although I certainly had what I needed, she says. We lived paycheck to paycheck like most of the people we knew, but I wanted more. I take care of my family. My mom and dad (Dan and Linda Kelly) are both retired and Im glad that they could do it. Her family played and still plays a role in the business. Her mother, her brother Dan Kelly, ex-husband Gary Bigham, and her sister-in-law, Bonnie Bigham, all assisted with Bigham Jewelers at its inception and continue to play a role in day-to-day operations. Bigham Galleria features creations by award-winning designers such as Elizabeth Locke, David Yurman, Penny Preville, Picchiotti and Bilgore. Many designers make personal appearances at the store, bringing extensive collections and interacting with customers. The store also offers a selection of watches from Rolex, Baume & Mercier, Carl F. Bucherer, Sablier and Shinola, as well as pre-owned timepieces. Its not like walking into a typical jewelry store, Ms. Bigham says. We have something for everyone. She received a bachelors degree in business from Kent State in 1989, graduating in four years while attending night classes. On weekdays, she worked the early shift at a trucking company, and on weekends she sold gold jewelry from a briefcase. After graduating, she joined the former Akron Diamond Trading Company, rising from a sales position to vicepresident of store operations. Upon opening her store, Ms. Bigham made community service, specifically causes that benefit women and children, a focal point. The Boys and Girls Club of Collier County, the Christ Child Society, the Naples Alliance for Children, The Naples Players and Baker Park are among the more than 50 organizations the business Bigham Jewelers has supported over the years. Those efforts led to her being named one of Colliers Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame laureates for 2016. Ms. Bigham invited Kathy Leciejeski, the teacher who so profoundly influenced her, to the awards ceremony and she recognized her during her acceptance speech. The tagline for the Bigham Jewelers TV commercials Have We Met Yet? has not only served as a warm, unique identifier for the business, but has also caught on with the public, Ms. Bigham says. I cant go anywhere in town without someone coming over and saying, Have we met yet? Interview with Kathy BighamBusiness mentors: A first and lifelong mentor was my uncle, Bill Wortzman. An entrepreneur in my Cleveland hometown, he established a respected and highly successful financial services firm, starting from scratch.Locally, my favorite mentor is the amazing Myra Janco Daniels, whose wisdom and grounded advice continue to inspire me.First job: When I was 10 years old, I got a paper route. Business words of wisdom: One of my favorite quotes is by Yoda, the jedi master in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. He says simply: Do. Or do not. There is no try. This quote inspired my business motto: Make it happen. Favorite business book: Malcolm Gladwells Outliers, for its insights on what it takes to reach high achievement levels in different fields. Things you look for when hiring: I look for three qualities in a candidate: That s/he CAN do the job, WANTS to do the job and WILL do the job. I need all three; if one is doubtful, its a no-go. Any job openings now? Because we are fortunate to be growing steadily, we always look for that additional right candidate. When s/he appears, we will create the position. Last time you had to fire someone and reason: Truthfulness is a musthave in our company. Last summer, I had to separate a new employee who had misrepresented himself. B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGAuto stocks sluggish as volume begins to exceed salesI am not a car person. I think it is because I grew up and lived in large cities my whole life that I dont have a passion for driving a ton of steel down the open road. In fact, when I met my future wife in Chicago, I didnt even own a car, which almost precluded her from accepting a date with me. Fortunately for carmakers, most Americans love cars. And they have been buying them in record numbers in the past year. And Februarys numbers were no exception, with U.S. auto sales coming in at an annualized 17.58 million vehicles sold. Yet if you look at the major manufacturers, their stock prices have remained flat. So why are auto stocks stagnant and what do the February numbers tell us about the auto industry in general? Looking at the February data, global automakers have a lot going for them. Dealers are selling cars left and right. And more importantly, what they are selling are mostly SUVs and trucks. These vehicles are significantly more profitable than lower cost sedans. Further, a higher than normal percentage of the sales are directly to consumers as opposed to fleet sales to businesses and government agencies which also are higher margin purchases. The macro environment is also good for car manufacturers. Interest rates are low and banks are keen to lend money to customers across the credit spectrum. In addition, low gas prices enable consumers to buy more high-margin SUVs and trucks with lower gas mileage. So, given all of this positive data, why arent the stock prices of Ford, GM, Toyota and the others in the sector pushing higher? First, manufacturers are being forced to offer significant rebates and incentives to meet their sales goals. In February, these incentives were over 10 percent for trucks. These rebates eat directly into these companies bottom lines. In addition, most car manufacturers are producing vehicles at full throttle. This is positive when consumer demand is high but if it wanes, it could result in major problems for theses firms. Analysts are already seeing this with sedan lines. For example, sedan volume decreased by 24 percent at Ford. And sales of the Toyota Camry, the best-selling car in the U.S., declined by 15 percent. Many analysts question whether market conditions have topped out for the car sector as well. Both interest rates and gas prices have already started to rise, which could dampen demand for cars, especially high margin SUVs and trucks. So, while investors are applauding high sales volumes, they have reason to be concerned about the future. just released a sobering statistic the days to turn, or sell, a vehicle rose to 74 in February, the highest since 2009. At GM, that number is closer to 100. The question is now what the car manufacturers will do about the challenges facing their industry after several robust years. If history is any guide to the future, this will not end well as they will continue to over produce vehicles even as demand slips, which will result in high inventory and the slashing of prices to move cars. This clearly will be great for customers wanting a new car, not so much for shareholders of the automakers.But these firms may be learning from their past mistakes. Already some have cut shifts at production plants to trim inventory in anticipation of a volume slowdown. And with the U.S. economy and employment rising, consumers have money to spend. This coupled with low valuations (GM is trading at a P/E of 6 with a 4 percent dividend yield for example), makes me cautiously optimistic about this sector. This is especially true as most other areas of the market have had huge run-ups and may be considered overvalued.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Seek Professional AdviceAccording to the 2016 Retirement Confidence Survey, only 49 percent of workers have tried to estimate how much income theyll need in retirement. That doesnt bode well for the other 51 percent, as they may be leaving their financial futures to chance. We all need a retirement plan including an estimate of the income well need in retirement and where that money will come from. (The average annual Social Security benefit is only about $16,000 not enough for most people to live on comfortably.) You dont need to go it alone. An experienced financial adviser can help you get your fiscal house in order. Financial advisers can be especially helpful when youre dealing with or preparing for major life events, such as getting married or divorced, buying a home, having a child, paying for college, retiring or (yikes) being laid off. They can help you deal with your retirement accounts when you change jobs, determine whether you have adequate disability insurance and decide if long-term-care insurance makes sense for you. Financial advisers can help you determine whether youre better off leasing or buying your next car, whether you should refinance your mortgage, how to avoid estate taxes, how to maximize your ability to care for elderly parents, and so on. You can learn a lot about these topics on your own, of course in books, magazines, newspapers and online. Still, it can be smart to consult a pro about your specific situation. It might cost you a few hundred dollars, but you might end up saving a few thousand dollars. Not all financial advisers are good, though. Watch out for those who will put their financial self-interest before yours, perhaps trying to sell you products you dont need, or skimming a percent off your assets without helping to increase your wealth. We favor fee-only advisers, as opposed to those who collect commissions for putting you in various investments. You can find a fee-only adviser via And visit to learn how to check out advisers before hiring them. Busted PennyBy far the dumbest investment I made was in a so-called penny stock called TagLikeMe Corp. It has been worth less than a penny per share for a long time now. I wish I had researched it first. I went in blind just because of advertisements. Lesson learned: Research before you buy! G.M., onlineThe Fool Responds: Thats an excellent lesson. You might add Stay away from penny stocks to your lessons learned, too. Penny stocks, typically trading for less than $5 per share, are generally tied to small companies with more story and promise than performance and profits. Theyre often hyped online or in newsletters, so that naive investors buy shares, sending the price up so that the hypesters can sell and profit in a pumpand-dump scheme. Google TagLikeMe, and you wont easily find its corporate website with links to press releases, financial reports and other useful information that could help you assess the company. You wont find a track record of increasing revenue and earnings, either. Its often tempting to buy into penny stocks, as you can get thousands of shares for relatively few dollars. But theyre more likely to sink than soar. It can be hard to imagine that a stock trading for, say, $0.25 per share could fall even further, but it very well might. Your portfolio will thank you if you stick to proven, established companies ideally ones with profits. Ford Drives AheadFord Motor Co. (NYSE: F) has made vast improvements in the quality and attractiveness of its vehicles since the recession subsided, and now its churning out profits quarter after quarter. And no one seems to care.Whats impressive about Ford today is that its profiting from the markets trends (SUVs and trucks) while also investing in future technologies such as electric vehicles and autonomous driving. The company recently showed off its second-generation autonomous Ford Fusion, a surprisingly normal-looking vehicle, and it invested $1 billion in Argo AI to develop commercial ride-sharing fleets by 2021. This year, 90 autonomous Ford Fusions triple the current fleet will be tested across the U.S. and potentially Europe, refining autonomous technology.Meanwhile, Ford is profiting from robust demand for trucks and SUVs, as it offers new or recently refreshed products in most of the key segments. Sales of its F-series trucks have been strong, with rising profits, and the refreshed Lincoln line of cars is selling well, too. Other Ford cars are struggling, though, with sales of the Focus, Fusion, Taurus and Mustang recently slowing.Ford is a leading automaker of the future while still being a cash machine today. Thats a big reason investors should love the stock, which recently sported a dividend yield near 5 percent. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Ford.) 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? (Answer: Costco) Wait for a Drop?QI plan to use an auto-investment feature to regularly invest in an S&P 500 index fund. Should I wait for a big drop in the stock market before starting? I.W., Fayetteville, North CarolinaANo, because the market may not drop for a few years, leaving you on the sidelines. Its generally a bad idea to try to time the market, because no one can know how it will move in the short term. (Over long periods, it has risen.) If you wait out a market decline, you may miss much of the recovery. If youre nervous about where the market is headed, making regular investments over time can be effective. (Do so with equal sums, and youre dollar-cost averaging.) That way youll get shares both when theyre lower priced and when theyre higher priced, and you wont have to keep guessing about the markets direction. Dont fret too much about occasional losses what matters is that you choose good investments and that youre focused on long-term performance. For most people, inexpensive broad-market index funds such as those that track the S&P 500 are smart choices. ***QWhats a full position in a stock? S.F., Mansfield, OhioAIts the size of the investment you aim to have in it. Imagine that you want to invest $4,000 in MacDonald Farms Inc. (ticker: EIEIO). If you dont have enough money right now, or if you think theres a reaso able chance the stock will fall soon, you might buy just $2,000 worth now, planning to add $2,000 later. The $2,000 would represent a half position in the stock. Once you owned the $4,000 worth you wanted, youd have a full position. A full position varies by person. Want more information about stocks?

B8 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPEN SUN. 1-4CHAMBERFrom page 1So can everybody else. At least 75 vendors (see list below) will sponsor tables and displays, many of them giving away gifts or opportunities. Theres the raffle for four free passes to Universal Orlando from Univisions Media Vista Group, for example. Or the free locally grown produce from Farmer Mikes U-Pick. Or free hearing tests, tote bags, and bottled water. Or the Money Cube, of course, where visitors will receive a gift card to an area business for the amount of money they collect in the Cube. Suitably, it seems, live steel drum entertainment will beat an energetic rhythm to the Expo near the Center Bar. But the event is a lot more than just a big give-away party. Its a tapestry display of sorts that reveals a community tightly sewn into a single fabric of robust economic health. The Bonita Chamber is a bright visible thread in that fabric. Many merchants will attest to that fact. Theyve been extremely supportive of the YMCA, an outstanding partner to us, says Pete Shattuck, branch director of the Bonita YMCA with a 24,000-square-foot building, a sophisticated outdoor swimming facility and eight new pickle-board courts soon to open, among its many other amenities for children and families. Participation is really the key to reaping the full benefits of chamber membership, explains Pam Fultz, community relations manager of Vi at Bentley Village for seniors in Naples seeking independent living, assisted living or skilled nursing. Bentley has more than 700 residents and 560 employees on 150 acres where an $80 million improvement includes two new clubhouses and 72 new independent living units. So the chamber is perfect for them. The Bentley notion is that getting old can be a lot of fun with an 18-hole parthree golf course (five of the 18 holes were just redesigned), bocce, tennis, croquet and fabulous chefs. But hows anybody going to know? The chamber, of course the starting place for getting the word out. You miss out if you dont attend many of the events the chamber offers, explains Ms. Fultz. Its a matter of not just joining, but participating.And they share your news, too. Theyre active on social media. We can give them our news and they distribute it for us. They share ideas and best practices, as well.Chamber members talk not only about the many events the chamber hosts before work and after work events at various businesses, as well as the year-long Leadership School, for example but the effective advertising and marketing the chamber does on behalf of members. Theyre strong with marketing and advertising they do a weekly newsletter and its not just members its anybody who wants information, so they send this out to close to 3,000 emails, Mr. Shattuck says. At costs so low theyd make a submariner blanche.Membership in the Bonita Area Chamber is about $7.50 a week or $395 per year, which buys access to all of our events and member rates, so participating in the community expos, or power networking lunches or before work and after 5 p.m. events becomes a benefit, explains Ms. Esposito.You also get visibility within our visitor bureau, in our Bonita Magazine, that we produce semi-annually, and on our website. The magazine goes out to 15,000 people, and it includes a visitor guide and all professional members. Both the magazine and the visitor guide are displayed as online resources as well. The Bonita Springs Chamber and its members do a significant amount of charity work, too which makes sense, since the chamber is a non-profit depending to a great deal on its remarkable volunteers, says Ms. Esposito. Were really fortunate with the community involvement we have the Bonita and Estero community. Were a strong chamber because of them. We have 25 board members and over 100 volunteers who help to put on all of these events, and to produce everything we do. Like the appearance of a Money Cube. Whats next a Money-Grows-OnTrees tree?

Models will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Four London Bay Homes residences in Mediterra are open Saturday-Sunday only.) Whether you are looking for your next home, browsing for decorating ideas or simply interested in seeing the latest home designs and neighborhoods, there is no better way to do it than on the Parade of Homes, says Kathy Curatolo, CBIA executive vice president. The self-guided POH is open to the public. No tickets are required. This years POH showcases 80 fully decorated model homes constructed by 22 of Southwest Floridas premier homebuilders who are all members of CBIA. Homes have two, three and four bedrooms, large outdoor areas with pools and spas and range in size from 2,100 square feet to more than 5,800 square feet of living space. Prices begin in the low $200,000s (Lennars two-bedroom Bromelia model in Bonita National Golf & County Club) to more than $2.1 million (Florida Lifestyles Homes Casa Kae five-bedroom estate in Quail West). Models feature architecture and designer details such as tongue-andgroove, coffer and cove-lit ceilings, wood and stone flooring, granite and quartz counter tops, custom cabinetry and luxury finishes. Gift-wrapping rooms, pet bathing stations, home theaters, outdoor showers, super-organized closets, hand-painted murals and elaborate staircases are features that visitors will long remember. Often features that debut in the parade are modified and re-introduced to the general market, Ms. Curatolo says. For example, the common mudroom has begun to integrate a drop zone for purses, keys, mail and cell phones. The growing multi-generational market has spurred demand for dual master suites, she adds, and larger kitchens with This incomparable estate in Port Royal has wide water views of Buccaneers Bay, made even more expansive by walls of glass that disappear for 12,800 square feet of seamless indoor and outdoor living. The home comes fully furnished as designed by Godfrey Design Consultants. Details include bronzed sculptures of fire and water by the infinity pool, and murano glass pieces and other artwork commissioned specifically for the property. The spacious outdoor kitchen/bar and lanai has a keystone fireplace, and the master suite has his-and-her baths, a hand-carved marble tub and private dressing rooms. There are five additional guest suites and a total of 10 baths, along with a fivecar garage and magnificent gardens and landscaping. Frank Sajtar of William Raveis Real Estate has the listing for $16,900,000.

MAKE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE!NAR survey finds Gen X on the mend, more adult children living with boomer parents NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSAn improving economy, multiple years of strong job growth and the notable increase in home values in most markets fueled a greater share of purchases from Generation X households over the past year. This is according to the National Association of Realtors 2017 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends study, which evaluates the generational differences of recent homebuyers and sellers. The survey additionally found that: A growing number of millennials and younger boomer buyers have children living at home. Student debt is common among Gen X and boomer households. More millennials are buying outside the city. And younger generations are more likely to use a real estate agent. Much of the spotlight in recent years has focused on the several challenges millennials face on their journey to homeownership. But lost in this discussion, according to NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, are the numerous Gen X households who bought their first home, started a family and entered the middle part of their careers only to be rattled by job losses, falling home values and overall economic uncertainty during and after the Great Recession. This years survey reveals that debt and little or no equity in their home slowed many Gen X households from buying sooner. Recent Gen X buyers delayed buying longer than millennials because of debt, were the most likely generation to have previously sold a distressed property and were the generation most likely to want to sell earlier but couldnt because their home was worth less than their mortgage. Furthermore, Gen X buyers indicated they had the most student loan debt ($30,000). Gen X sellers median tenure in their previous home was 10 years, which puts many of them selling a property they bought right around the time home values were on the precipice of declining, Mr. Yun said. Fortunately, the much stronger job market and 41 percent cumulative rise in home prices since 2011 have helped a growing number build enough equity to finally sell and trade up to a larger home. More Gen X sellers are expected this year and are definitely needed to ease the inventory shortages in much of the country. The uptick in purchases from Gen X buyers this year (28 percent) was the highest since 2014 and up from 26 percent in 2016. Millennials were the largest group of recent buyers for the fourth consecutive year (34 percent), but their overall share was down slightly from a year ago (35 percent). Baby boomers were 30 percent of buyers, and the Silent Generation made up 8 percent.Make room for the kidsThis years survey also brought to light how the soaring cost of rent in many areas is likely influencing the decision of middle-aged parents to buy a home with their young adult children in mind. Younger boomers were the most likely to purchase a multi-generational home (20 percent; 16 percent in 2016), and the top reason for doing so was that children over 18 years old either moved back home or never left (30 percent; 27 percent in 2016). The job market is very healthy for young adults with a college education, but repaying student debt and dealing with ever-increasing rents on an entry-level salary are forcing many to either shackup with several roommates or move back home, Mr. Yun said. The trend of delayed household formation is one of the main contributors to the nations low homeownership rate, he added.Student debt updateDebt, particularly from student loans, appears to be a portion of the household budget of buyers in every generation. While millennials were the most likely to have student debt (46 percent), their typical balance ($25,000) was lower than Gen X buyers ($30,000). A combined 16 percent of younger and older boomer buyers also had student debt, with a median balance of more than $10,000 for each group. Among the share of buyers who said saving for a down payment was the most difficult task, millennials were most likely to cite student loans as the debt that delayed saving (55 percent), followed by Gen X (29 percent) and younger boomers (9 percent). Repaying student debt also appears to be slowing some current homeowners who went to graduate school and now can no longer afford to sell and trade up because of their loans, Mr. Yun said. Nearly a third of homeowners in a NAR survey released last year said student debt is preventing them from selling a home to buy a new one, he added.Heading to the suburbsSimilar to previous years, roughly two-thirds of millennial buyers are married. One aspect of their household that has changed is the number of children in them. In this years survey, 49 percent of millennial buyers had at least one child, which is up from 45 percent last year and 43 percent two years ago. With more kids in tow, the need for more space at an affordable price is increasingly pushing millennial buyers outside the city. Only 15 percent of millennial buyers bought in an urban area, which is down from 17 percent last year and 21 percent two years ago. Millennial buyers, at 85 percent, were the most likely generation to view their home purchase as a good financial investment, Mr. Yun said. These strong feelings bode well for even greater demand in the future as more millennials settle down and begin raising families. A significant boost in new and existing inventory will go a long way to ensuring the opportunity is there for more of them to reach the market.Millennial buyers and sellers overwhelmingly go online and use a real estate agent Regardless of age, buyers and sellers continue to see real estate agents as an integral part of a real estate transaction. In this years survey, nearly 90 percent of respondents said they worked with a real estate agent to buy or sell a home. This kept forsale-by-owner transactions down at their lowest share ever (8 percent). Not surprisingly, online and digital technology usage during the home search has increased in recent years. Although millennials and Gen X buyers were the most likely to go online during their search, they were also the most likely to buy their home using a real estate agent (92 percent and 88 percent, respectively). On the seller side, millennials were the most likely to use an agent (90 percent), followed closely by Gen X and younger boomer sellers (each at 89 percent). Online and mobile technology is increasingly giving consumers a glut of real estate data at their disposal, said NAR President William Brown. However, at the end of the day, buyers and sellers of all ages but especially younger and often DIY-minded consumers seek and value a Realtors ability to coach them through the complexities of a real estate transaction.NAR mailed a 132-question survey in July 2016 using a random sample weighted to be representative of sales on a geographic basis to 93,171 recent homebuyers. Respondents had the option to fill out the survey via hard copy or online; the online survey was available in English and Spanish. A total of 5,465 responses were received from primary residence buyers. After accounting for undeliverable questionnaires, the survey had an adjusted response rate of 5.9 percent. Heres how the survey defined generations: younger millennials, ages 26 and under; older millennials, ages 27-36; Generation X, ages 37-51; younger boomers, ages 52-61; older boomers, ages 62-70; and the Silent Generation, ages 71-91.

Have you ever wanted to live in the pristine heart of nature? Then Useppa Island should be your home. Located in the north sector of Pine Island Sound, 3 miles south of Boca Grand Pass, the Sound is a designated Aquatic Preserve. Floridas highest ranking, it is one of six aquatic preserves that make up the Charlotte Harbor complex of preserves. The Gasparilla Sound-Charlotte Harbor Preserve is located just north of Useppa and extends easterly to Burnt Store and Punta Gorda. Pine Island Sound is clean enough to support species that are sensitive to man-made pollutants, including oysters, clams and shrimp. The variety of finfish that call the Sound home range from the critically endangered Smalltooth Sawfish, to Grouper, Redfish, Snook, Snapper and many others. Heralded as the fishing capital of the state, there are also Tarpon, of course, the Silver King of game fish. The waters are bound by expansive mangrove forests and salt marshes that, not only, protect the estuary, but also serve as a nursery for a wide variety of bird life and marine life. Diverse and valuable, this habitat serves as sanctuary to 86 of Floridas endangered and threatened species. For birders, this location is a true gem. Sightings of rare birds such as the Roseate Spoonbill, Little Blue and Tricolored Herons, Reddish Egrets, Roseate Tern and the American Oystercatcher are common. Even more delightful: imagine looking at all compass points from your Useppa shoreline, knowing that the number of new rooftops in view are confined to minimal increases over the next century. The term protected takes on a whole new meaning when you consider becoming a part of the Perfect Nature of Useppa Island. Useppa Island. Find Yourself Here. Make your escape.

magicbelieve in BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comn talking with John Sebastian, front man in the 1960s for The Lovin Spoonful, about his long and varied career as a musician, one would think that the stars aligned just for him to have a life of exploring what interested him and magically finding a niche to support whatever that was. A series of happy accidents, as he describes them, led him through the folk revival of the s, the rock era of the s, commercial work and solo exploration through the 0s and a few decades of pleasing himself through the s and to today.

Champlain Avenue Books. 264 pages. Trade paperback, $13.99. Set in Boston during the 1950s and early 1960s, this curious coming-ofage tale involves unusual characters and several lifealtering secrets. Iris Apples world is rocked at the age of 10, when her mother is murdered. Iris suspects her crude and cruel father might very well be the murderer, but she has no way of acting on her suspicions. Nick Apple, son of a well-known Boston bookie, runs the Kenmore Square rooming house where the family lives among the down and out boarders. One boarder is very special: Madame Charlemagne, a once-popular performer who has become a recluse. The aging cabaret singer and young Iris assist and console one another in various ways. As the years go by, Iris more and more feels an obligation to herself. At 18, soon after graduation from high school, this lovely but lonely girl with no suitors determines to find out what or who caused her mothers death. The search requires that she first find out more about her mothers life. To accomplish her ends, Iris needs to make several trips from the bare bones rooming house to the elegant Wellesley Inn where her mother had worked before marrying Nick. The owner-operator is Buffy, who had been her mothers best friend. Iris learns a lot from Buffy and in this way comes closer to understanding her mother who, as it turns out, was not murdered by Nick. Iris also learns that the Wellesley Inn has fallen on hard times, though it is still well maintained. Buffys health begins to fail, and while there is a chance for Iris to follow the dream of working there, she feels she owes Nick something to atone for her suspicions. Still, it isnt long before she and Madame Charlemagne are working and residing at the inn. The catalyst for these changes is Buffys son, a lawyer without a practice who had been estranged from Buffy but now feels a need to set the inn back on its feet and repair the relationship with his fragile mother as well. I will not deny that romance is on the way and none too soon. Perhaps the authors finest accomplishment in this novel is how well she has captured the spirit of the times and the place. Mid-20th century Boston is hardly ancient history, but it is still a long journey back from the present. The echoes of gangster life, working-class life and lives of dignity and refinement are conjured via the ongoing contacts between rooming house and inn, between Madame Charlemagnes past and present and between the brutish Nick and the caring and ethical Michael. There are a few other well-drawn characters, the most notable of which is Iriss Aunt Bea, who does her best to improve the management of the rooming house, soften Nicks manner and educate Iris in a way that prepares her for adult life. Iris, who is the storys narrator, is best characterized by the actions she takes to help Madame Charlemagne get over her fears of leaving her quarters at the rooming house. This change requires a series of delicate steps for which Iris seeks and acts upon good advice. Madame and Bea have been different kinds of mother figures for Iris, shaping the capable woman she becomes.About the authorCarol June Stover (Carol June Gibbs) grew up in northern New Jersey and graduated with highest honors from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ Gulf Coast Symphony and Broadway Palm join forces to present the Tony Awardand Pulitzer Prize-winning South Pacific at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall the way it was originally meant to be experienced: with a full orchestra performing the score. While the symphony makes the music (with lead singers from Broadway and national touring shows), the theater supplies everything from rehearsal space to costumes to ensemble members and child performers. Its a complete production, a fully staged show, says Andrew Kurtz, Gulf Coast Symphony music director and conductor. Youll hear these amazing orchestrations the way it was (originally) imagined by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the way they wrote it. The 44-piece orchestra will be right onstage with the actors/singers/dancers. The musicians are not in the pit, Mr. Kurtz explains, because its not big enough to accommodate the full orchestra. Fully staged means there will be costumes, props and visual elements. Though there are no walls, there is a stage designer. To present a locale, images will be projected onto a screen. The show is part of Gulf Coast Symphonys Great American Musical series, which last year included Carousel in a similar production. Next year: Oklahoma! We want people to experience (these shows) the way our parents and grandparents did, Mr. Kurtz says, adding, Right now Im on a Rodgers and Hammerstein kick. South Pacific is one of the maestros favorite Richard Rodgers musicals. It has some lush melodies and really creative lyrics, he says. It also has one of his favorite songs: Youve Got to Be Carefully Taught. What makes a work a masterpiece and a great work whether its literature or a painting in a museum or a book is not only was it a great piece of art at the time it was created, but whether it has withstood the test of time and still speaks to a contemporary audience, he says. South Pacific, with its message about overcoming ones inherent biases and hatreds and bigoted attitudes, was considered radical for its time. But its still as relevant today as it was in 1949, he says.Dealing with prejudiceTwo characters in the musical have to deal with their own prejudices: Ensign Nellie Forbush from Arkansas, who falls in love with Emile de Becque, only to discover that he had had a Polynesian wife and his children are part Polynesian; and Lieutenant Cable, who falls in love with Bloody Marys daughter, Liat, a Tonkinese woman, but realizes she wouldnt be accepted back in his hometown of Philadelphia. The lieutenant sings Youve Got to Be Carefully Taught. Basically: you have to be taught to hate, Mr. Kurtz says about the message in the song. These are not things we are born with, these biases. The way we look at the world is not built into our DNA. Youre trained to have these attitudes. When South Pacific was touring in the 1950s, several cities in the South insisted the song be pulled from the show. But Mr. Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein refused to censor their work. When Mr. Kurtz chose the show probably back in December 2015, he says, way before the election he knew the message still rang true, but he didnt know it would be front and center across the country come March 2017. More than any other time in our history, (the message) is important, with whats going on, he says. This country has become so divided that we cant have civil discourse with people who have different views. Thats the irony for me, as a producer. When I chose it, how was I to know? Beloved classicsSouth Pacific contains many beloved classics, among them: Some Enchanted Evening, Im In Love With a Wonderful Guy, Bali Haii, Happy Talk, Younger Than Springtime, Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and There is Nothing Like a Dame. The orchestra loves performing the numbers, he says. Its way more than doing a concert. We turn ourselves into a musical theater company for two weeks. Will Prather, executive producer of Broadway Palm and collaborator on the project, gives all the credit to the maestro. This is Andrews brainchild, he says. Over the years, Ive worked with Andrew on a wide variety of projects. Hes always looking to produce new and different approaches to genres associated with either orchestra or musical theater. Hes always thinking outside the box. Last year, Mr. Prather says, Mr. Kurtz called him for some assistance with Carousel. I was able to come in at the last minute and help out, he says. What I provide is resources to assist him with producing. As Broadway Palm had previously performed South Pacific, the theater had the costumes and many of the props. And while Mr. Kurtz hires top-notch talent for all the leads, he says, the Broadway Palm team helped with some local casting for the ensemble and child actors. Mr. Kurtz has cast Jeremy Webb and Matt Chandler as Luther Billis and Emile De Becque, respectively. Mr. Webb created the role of Francesco Andreini in The Glorious Ones at Lincoln Center Theatre and received a Drama Desk Award for his performance in Off-Broadways Tabletop. Mr. Chandler was last seen on Broadway in the Stephen Sondheim tribute Children and Art and appeared in the City Center Encores! production of The Ziegfeld Follies of 1936. Siri Howard, who plays Ensign Nellie Forbush, appeared on Broadway in Les Miserables (covering the roles of Fantine and C osette) and The Sound of Music.A theatrical feastAs the symphony and the dinner theater cross-promote South Pacific between their patrons, Mr. Prather admits some have been a bit confused, mistakenly thinking the show will be held at the Broadway Palm, or calling the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall and asking if the evening includes a buffet dinner. The show is at the Mann Hall, and ticketholders cannot order a meal. But regardless, seeing South Pacific with a full orchestra promises to be a feast in itself.

While in Staunton, Va., for an industrial photography job in 1955 O. Winston Links longstanding love of railroads became focused on the nearby Norfolk and Western Railway. The last major Class 1 railroad yet to make the transition from steam to diesel motive power, the N&W had refined its use of steam locomotives and earned a reputation for precision transportation. Mr. Link, a New York-based commercial photographer, went on to chronicle the last years of the N&W steam locomotives, capturing more than 2,400 images and 100 7-inch reels of sound recordings in 21 trips made between 1955-60 His most famous photographs are night compositions made possible by meticulous setups and elaborate lighting. Life Along the Line offers an expansive view of Mr. Links multidimensional portfolio and a moving account of the people and communities surrounding Americas last steam railroad.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYLove, betrayal and a bestseller: The Swans of Fifth AvenueIf gossiping were an Olympic sport, the writer Truman Capote would have had a trove of golds. He thrived on gossip, using it as a kind of currency to buy his way into exclusive circles. He told stories about Hollywood stars to high society women and vice versa. Hed gossip individually about others in the same circle, making his confidante feel as if she were his most valued and intimate friend. The more outrageous or salacious the story, the better as long as it made him the center of attention. Melanie Benjamins latest New York Times Bestseller, The Swans of Fifth Avenue, looks at Mr. Capotes relationships with high society women of New York City, including Babe Paley (whose husband William Paley was the founder and chairman of the board of CBS), Slim Keith, CZ Guest, Gloria Guinness and Pamela Churchill. The author charmed his way into their lives; they were amused by this short, flamboyant, gay man who wrote Breakfast at Tiffanys and In Cold Blood. They trusted him enough to share confidences. He called them the swans. But then, after struggling for years with writers block, he betrayed them all by putting their stories in one revealing short story, La Cote Basque 1965. It ran in Esquire magazine in November 1975 and created an enormous stir, causing Mr. Capote to be ostracized. Their dirty laundry on display so publically, the women immediately shut him out of their lives. To me, thats a central theme of the book: who betrayed whom, says Ms. Benjamin. I think in a way the swans betray Truman when they turn their backs on him. If you do unconditionally love someone, dont you forgive them? Though they had good reason not to. Mr. Capotes writing, up to that point, was always very autobiographical, she says. I think he ran out of stories to tell of his own, then he had to borrow them from the people he knew. In Cold Blood was the pinnacle of the writers success, she says. Everything is downhill from there. With The Swans of Fifth Avenue, Ms. Benjamin says, she explores what Mr. Capote did next. She says she found it puzzling that, on one hand, Mr. Capote was quoted as saying his swans were too dumb to recognize themselves, in his short story, while on the other hand, he said, What do they expect? Im a writer. Truman was quite capable of telling many versions of the truth, depending on his mood at the time, Ms. Benjamin says. He was a child who never fully had a mothers love (he) tested everyone in his life. He pushed them all away. Ms. Benjamin will sign books and speak at three events coming up in Southwest Florida. Shell be interviewed onstage at ArtisNaples at 10 a.m. Thursday and Saturday, March 9 and 11, as part of the Critics Choice lecture series with Elaine Newton (the March 9 event is sold out). And she is the keynote speaker for Lunch with the Author, a benefit for the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, taking place Monday, March 13, at the Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel. Ms. Benjamins previous historic novels have looked at Alice Liddell Hargreaves, who was the inspiration for Alice In Wonderland (Alice I Have Been), Lavinia Warren Bump (The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb) and Anne Morrow Lindbergh (The Aviators Wife). The more books you write, the harder it is to find the right subject, especially if youre successful, she says, because a lot of people are invested in your career and have opinions, including editors, publishers and even readers, who are all looking for something fresh. She believes says the historical novel genre really kicked off in 2007 with Nancy Horans Loving Frank, about Frank Lloyd Wright and his illicit love affair with Mamah Borthwick Cheney. Now, she adds, the genre is getting very crowded, making it difficult for a writer to find a story that hasnt been covered. She admits shes gone down a few wrong roads and had to abandon books she was writing because they just werent working. You have to find a story you identify with and people you can have empathy for, and you have to slip inside (their) skins, she says. And you have to find a fresh approach to explore it. Though writers are often known to use others lives in their work, most generally do a better job of fictionalizing the stories, weaving them into something new. Ms. Benjamin says her friends arent concerned about her stealing their stories for her fiction, as her characters are historical. Every authors different, she says. A lot of us dont borrow our friends stories. I look at the past, at people who arent here anymore. As a writer of historical fiction, she says, people dont see me as a threat. Im not really writing about my life, and I dont want to. Im interested in other peoples. Now available in paperback, The Swans of Fifth Avenue has been wildly successful. In addition to being a New York Times Bestseller, it was a Los Angeles Times Bestseller, a National Indie Bestseller, a People Book of the Week and was on Entertainment Weeklys Must List, to name just a few. The Washington Post called it highly entertaining, and USA Today said it was shamelessly gossipy a catty, juicy read thats like a three-martini lunch.In addition to telling a well-known story about Mr. Capote, the novel examines the role of storytelling, the way our lives revolve around stories, from once upon a time to anecdotes told while first getting to know someone, to stories we embellish to make ourselves look good, to recollections told at our funerals. It looks at the power of stories in our lives: the way we use them to reinvent ourselves, the way they can be used as currency to create intimacy or acceptance and how, when misused and misappropriated, they can cause much harm.No matter how successful someone might look on the outside, almost everyone in this novel is an outsider in one way or another, longing to be part of the crowd theyre locked out of. Ms. Benjamin also examines the theme of deception and betrayal. With the exception of two, every one of those swans and Truman come to New York society as outsiders, with things to forget, pasts to overcome, things they wanted to hide Truman always was the outsider. They allowed him into their world. Her next book, The Girls in the Picture, set to be published in January 2017, looks at the life of actress Mary Pickford and her closest friend, screenwriter Frances Marion, during the early days of Hollywood. Mary was the first female to head her own movie studio, says Ms. Benjamin. Frances was the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood and the first female to win an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Its about Hollywood in 1914, when it starts. Theres something very appealing to Hollywood then, the newness of it. It was an untamed paradise. It was fun for me to explore it. Women were just as powerful as men back then. We see the corroding influence of fame on a friendship; Marys fame became so overwhelming, it eclipses the friendship. Its a great story, the early Hollywood rawness of it. They were making it up as they were going along. o o b p t Two events with author Melanie BenjaminCritics Choice with Elaine Newton>> What: Book discussion >> When: 10 a.m. Saturday, March 11 >> Where: ArtisNaples >> Cost: $45 >> Info: 597-1900 or >> Note: The Thursday, March 9, event is sold out.Lunch with the Author>> What: Bene t for the Sanibel Public Library Foundation >> When: 11:30 a.m. noon Monday, March 13 >> Where: The Sanctuary Golf Club, Sanibel >> Cost: $85; no tickets will be sold at the door >> Info: 472-2483 or >> Note: Limited tickets remained available at press time.

Keep communication lines open. T AURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its not easy to bring order to a chaotic situation, whether its in the workplace or at home. But if anyone can do it, you can. A pleasant surprise awaits you by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful that you dont make an upcoming decision solely on the word of those who might have their own reasons for wanting you to act as they suggest. Check things out for yourself. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A personal relationship that seems to be going nowhere could be restarted once you know why it stalled. An honest discussion could result in some surprising revelations. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That unexpected attack of self-doubt could be a way of warning yourself to go slow before making a career-changing decision. Take more time to do a closer study of the facts. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A workplace problem needs your attention, now, before it deteriorates to a point beyond repair. A trusted third party could be helpful in closing the gaps that have opened. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A recent family situation could give rise to a new problem. Keep an open mind and avoid making judgments about anyones motives until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your always-sharp intuition to alert you to potential problems with someones attempt to explain away the circumstances behind a puzzling incident. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although you still need to do some snipping of those lingering loose ends from a past project, you can begin moving on to something else. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-confidence levels rising, you should feel quite comfortable with agreeing to take on a possibly troublesome, but potentially well-rewarded, situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Travel is favored, both for business and for fun. The end of the week brings news about an upcoming project that could lead toward that promised career change. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of offering comfort as well as guidance. You would do well in the healing arts. SEE ANSWERS, C11 SEE ANSWERS, C11

This is perhaps a surprising statistic, considering that the top experts employ many sophisticated bidding devices to help guide them to the ideal contract. For a good example of how easy it is to miss the mark, take this case where a normal sequence of bids led NorthSouth to a contract that seemed certain to fail. Three notrump was laydown, but was not easy to reach. However, good play allowed declarer to get home safely. Faced with four probable losers two hearts and two diamonds he managed to make one of them disappear by converting his seemingly useless jack of clubs into a trick. After winning Wests queen of hearts with dummys ace, declarer immediately led the club three toward his jack! East put up the queen and played the king and another heart to Wests ten. West shifted to the queen of diamonds, but South was now firmly in the drivers seat. He took the diamond with the ace, cashed the A-Q of spades and club jack, and crossed to dummys ten of spades. He then discarded his two losing diamonds on the A-K of clubs to finish with 10 tricks.It is true that South lost a club trick he did not have to lose, but in so doing, he avoided losing two diamond tricks. He realized from the start that his only real chance for the contract was to score three club tricks instead of two, and all his moves were made with that goal in mind.

Conservancy Nature Center I 1495 Smith Preserve Way I Naples, FL 34102 I 239.213.2500 FILM CAPSULESBefore I Fall (Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Jennifer Beals) After dying in a car accident, a teenager wakes to relive the same day until well, thats what she needs to figure out. Its Groundhog Day as a teen girl drama, and though it has some intriguing ideas, it plays out in pretty standard ways. Rated PG-13.Fist Fight (Ice Cube, Charlie Day, Tracy Morgan) A public high school teacher (Mr. Day) gets his colleague (Mr. Cube) fired after tattling on him after he destroyed a student-occupied desk with an axe. Its crass and unrealistic, but worst of all, its an unfunny mish mash of a high school that is truly out of this world. Rated R.The LEGO Batman Movie (Voices of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Jenny Slate) Bruce Wayne/ Batman (Mr. Arnett) adopts an orphan (voice of Michael Cera) and fights The Joker (Mr. Galifianakis) and other Gotham City villains in this spinoff of The LEGO Movie (2014). 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.

LATEST FILMSKong: Skull IslandIs it worth $15? (3D) YesAt moments, Kong: Skull Island showcases spectacular action filmmaking, ripe with energy, style and splendor its a blast. At other times, its spectacularly dumb, infuriating even. It makes you wonder why so many millions would be spent on visual effects when the storytelling needs so much work. This is not your fathers (or grandfathers) King Kong. Its a new spin on the giant ape, made to capitalize on our thirst for wham-bang explosive entertainment (not knockin it I have the thirst, too). After this, Warner Bros. has Godzilla: King of Monsters planned for 2019, which will lead into a King Kong vs. Godzilla showdown in 2020. Given the studios recent struggles with the DC Comics Extended Universe (Batman v. Superman), it needs fans to catch on to Skull Island in a big way. But after the so-so Godzilla (2014) and now this mediocrity, why would they?The story comes together easily enough: Explorers Bill (John Goodman) and his assistant Houston (Corey Hawkins) get money from a belabored senator (Richard Jenkins, sadly wasted here) for an expedition to a newly discovered island in the South Pacific. Its 1973, so bad haircuts and suits are plentiful. They assemble a team: Mason (Brie Larson) is the photographer, James (Tom Hiddleston) is the tracker, and a military contingent led by Colonel Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) provides the transportation. Main figures to know from the platoon: Cole (Shea Whigham), Mills (Jason Mitchell) and Chapman (Toby Kebbell, who also provides the motion capture performance for Kong). Upon their arrival, they find Hank (John C. Reilly), whos been there a while and yet is completely ignored at key moments. Bill knows the island is dangerous Its a place where myth and science meet, he says and doesnt tell anyone, so yes, hes that guy. But this is forgivable because we paid money to see a giant ape wreak havoc, and we know humans must get to the island for that to happen. This leads to some great action sequences, especially the helicopter arrival thats set to the tune of Black Sabbaths Paranoid.When the second half of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts movie hits, however, the tune changes. A plot contrivance sends humans in the wrong direction, and its infuriating. Also, Packard not being able to get away from his bitter war mentality unnecessarily adds another antagonist, as if a giant ape and creatures lovingly called Skullcrawlers arent enough. Its a woeful narrative flaw in a movie that needs to keep its focus man vs. nature, not man vs. nature vs. man.Kong: Skull Island is a big movie for many reasons, and for the reason audiences care about most, its just good enough to be satisfying. It has style, and it even attempts at times to feel like a Vietnam War movie (which is more than many movies of this ilk can claim). If you go, see it in IMAX 3D the sound is better, it looks fantastic, and you might just say wow enough to forgive its flaws. k f g h o d dan >> First, Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre) and Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) were both in Straight Outta Compton (2015). And second, be sure to stay for the after-credits scene. It teases more than just Godzilla and King Kong.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 9-15, 2017 C17 These Shining Lives sheds light on the Radium Girls of the 1920s BY PATRICE SHIELDSSpecial to Florida WeeklyIn recognition of Womens History Month, The Naples Players present Melanie Marnichs historical drama, These Shining Lives, March 22-April 15 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. Jessica Walck directs. Set in the 1920s at the factory Radium Dial on the outskirts of Chicago, the play is inspired by the true story of the young women, now remembered as The Radium Girls, who were poisoned by the luminous paint they applied to numbers on the faces of clocks and watches. The uplifting but ominous story chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day. The story follows Catherine (Jamielynn Bucci), a young mother who is happily married to her ironworker husband Tom (Jesse Hughes). Catherine opens the play with the lines that are both hopeful and foreboding: This isnt a fairy tale, though it starts like one. Its not a tragedy, though it ends like one. Catherine takes a job in a local watch factory to help make ends meet at home and meets Pearl (Amy Hughes), the incessant jokester; Frances (Katherine Oni), the moral backbone; and sharp-tongued Charlotte (Jasmine Vizena), the brutally honest one of the group. As the women happily paint watch dials with radium, sharpening the point of their brushes between their lips to accurately apply the radium to the dials, they become the best of friends. When they start to notice the unusual effects of working with radium, the women are quickly reassured by the factory foreman Mr. Reed (Mark Vanagas) that radium is in no way harmful and might in fact have health benefits. And when they begin to succumb to the devastating effects of radium, the company refuses to acknowledge the issue and begins to systematically fire them when their illnesses interfere with their work. Though critically ill, the women choose to stand up and fight for justice. These women and their strength still shine brightly today and their resilient efforts for justice set in motion workplace safety standards and workers compensation, introduced to protect future generations.

Based on Mr. Alperins popular MBA lectures, the workshop will look at the issues of creativity and innovation in the workplace. Corporate environments often tend to force the proven path and punish a novel approach because it is perceived risky. The approach, however, leads to a constant loss of talent in organizations. And talent is one of the most important investments any organization makes. Mr. Alperin will demystify common beliefs about this subject and give the participants a set of tools to allow them to discover their own creativity and hone the leadership traits that will help them generate healthy and creative working environments. An Argentine-born contemporary painter and designer, Mr. Alperin is the first artist to become an MBA professor of creativity and innovation at the Pontifical Catholic University in Buenos Aires. For more information about him, visit www. Admission to the Connect the Dots workshop is free. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the Naples Art Association at 262-6517, ext. 100, or by emailing COURTESY PHOTOContemporary painter and designer Ignacio Alperin.

For more information, visit www. Fishing for a treat?Settle in on Saturday evening for Samantha FishWhen Samantha Fish and her band take the stage at Bonita Blues Fest from 6-7:15 p.m. Saturday, March 11, the crowd is in for a treat. Although shes been lauded by blues legends Buddy Guy and Luther Dickinson, Ms. Fish grew up on raw, scrappy rock n roll and infuses all of her music with that basic, unfettered sound than means so much to her. Working with Luther on my last album (Wild Heart, 2015) further instilled that spirit in me, she says on her website. It made me realize just how well rock n roll ties into soul music, R&B, country and so many other forms of music. Ms. Fishs newest album, Chills & Fever, is set for release next week, on Friday, March 17. For this one, she traveled to Detroit and joined forces with members of the Detroit Cobras, a band whose insurgent ethic has made them darlings of the Midwest punk/ blues scene. The Detroit Cobras consists of Joe Mazzola on guitar, Steve Nawara on bass, Kenny Tudrick and Bob Mervak on keys, Mark Levron on trumpet and Travis Blotsky on the sax. With Ms. Fish they share a common love of classic soul and rollicking rhythms. The resulting Chills & Fever album is described on the website as a pure slab of rocking rhythm n blues. I dont think I ever enjoyed making a record quite as much as I enjoyed making this one, Ms. Fish says. I love the sound of the brass and the edgier intensity. One things for sure: Nothing ever felt so authentic. For their appearance at Bonita Blues Fesitval, The Samantha Fish Band will welcome special guest Albert Castiglia, a Miami-based blues guitarist who performed last year at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Hear Samantha Fish and her band perform at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 11.

Music is a wonderful thing because you can pretty much do it until you drop I think you continue to be affected by all parts of what you take in as a player. Mr. Sebastians fans in Southwest Florida have two opportunities to see him in concert next week. He performs at 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, March 13-14, at G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples. The shows are part of the seasons concert series presented by TheatreZone. But what does luck have to do with it? Mr. Sebastian was born in 1944 to John and Jane Sebastian, a classical harmonica player and a radio scriptwriter, respectively. Artists and musicians littered his childhood, most especially his godmother, Vivian Vance, who most people would recognize as Ethel Mertz on I Love Lucy. It was his Aunt Vivian who introduced young John to the heady affirmation of a roaring crowd when he was about 5 years old. She killed in this theatrical production and she gestured to me from the side of the stage, Come here, he recalled. His aunt quickly told him that when the curtain rose, the audience would scream in happiness not anger and that he should get ready for it. Once they digested the fact that a child had been brought on stage, the people in the theater went nuts. I came in trailing on somebody elses goodwill, and it was the perfect way to get on the stage, Mr. Sebastian reflects. Also consider the fact that having the Paganini of the harmonica as a father facilitated Mr. Sebastians entry into rock crowd in the 1960s. While he was still mastering guitar, all those dudes who had SEBASTIANFrom page 1

Certainly as an instrument to actually support me, the harmonica was it, he says. Thats because there were so many guitarists and they were starting to get good by 1964, he said. While I was breaking my balls trying to learn to play guitar here comes Doc Watson or Mississippi John Hurt. Thats what it was when I was in The Village. His versatility on guitar, harmonica and autoharp led to an immersion in jug band music and his work with The Lovin Spoonful, which answered the British rock style with an American sound Mr. Sebastian wrote and sang. We were grateful to The Beatles for reminding us of our rock n roll roots, he said about his Lovin Spoonful bandmates. But we wanted to cut out the middle man, so to speak, and get down to making this new music as an American band. By blending elements of what is known as roots music blues, country, folk and jug band the group was able to land its first seven singles at the top of the charts. Before dissolving in 1968, The Lovin Spoonful turned out enduring songs including Do You Believe in Magic? Summer in the City, Daydream and Do You Ever Make Up Your Mind? For Mr. Sebastian, the 1970s and s were filled with solo releases and session work for artists such as Crosby, Stills and Nash. His continued fascination with jug band music led to the formation of the J-Band, which performed and recorded throughout the 1990s and included lauded musicians Yank Rachell, Fritz Richmond, Jimmy Vivino and Geoff Muldaur. What kept me busy most of the nineties was making two jug band albums (that were) quite expensive to make. I wanted these guys because theyre all the best, he said. We had a lovely couple of albums. Every now and then that jug band continues to reform itself. These days, Mr. Sebastian contents himself with playing mostly on weekends and taking on a string of dates here and there. For his upcoming concerts in Naples, hell perform a cross-section of his work that includes hits from The Lovin Spoonful, a few television theme songs he wrote (Welcome Back from Welcome Back, Kotter, for one), selections from the J-Band and popular songs from his solo days. Im so lucky that Im not stuck playing one particular tune, he said. Its fun being able to circulate them a little bit and be able to spontaneously do some of those things. Hell be all by his lonesome onstage at the G&L Theatre, with no 20or 30-somethings standing in for the old guys. Its a one-guy, one-guitar show to see what kind of trouble I can get into, he said. I am kind of a repository on some of these odd styles and I think thats what interests the audience. Its fun to watch somebody listen to a one-guy, one-guitar arrangement where theyll see the barebones and remember when there was a bass player and an autoharp doing the same thing.

H00616 8/16 ANTIQUESFloral designs dating back to 18th century still popular with collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELSpring brings flowers, and this year designers are using more floral prints than usual for fabrics and designs. But a picture of a plant as a decoration on dinnerware is an old idea going back to at least the 1600s. In 1761, an Encyclopedia of Danish Flowers (Flora Danica) was commissioned by King Frederik V of Denmark. Thousands of hand-colored illustrations from engraved copper plates were made that accurately showed the wild flowers and plants. It was not completed until 1874, but some of the drawings were used to decorate a banquet service in 1790. The first Flora Danica dinner set of 1,802 pieces was made for King Christian VII to give as a gift to Russian Empress Catherine II of Russia. It is said it was to make up for not helping the Russians in the countrys war with Sweden. She died before the set was finished, so it stayed in Denmark. The remaining 1,530 pieces belong to Queen Margethe II and pieces have been used for special occasions. You can still buy new dishes from the Royal Copenhagen factory or old ones at antiques shops and auctions. It is said to be the only 18th-century set that is still being made. Each piece has a single plant pictured as the decoration. Dishes can be ordered with the preferred plant. A Flora Danica platter recently sold for almost $1,000. It was decorated with Verbascum Thapsiforme Beuspidatum Shad. We call it a mullein or velvet plant. The tall yellow flowers are used in herbal medicine. Today there are more than 300 varieties of mullein, and more are being propagated to get more flowers, shorter flower stalks and other changes. If you own a Flora Danica piece, be very careful. Even a tiny chip in the notched edge can lower the price by half or more. Q: I have a Cracker Jack AM radio my dad gave me when I was 8 years old. It runs on a 9-volt battery. Its in perfect condition and tunes in clearly. Is it worth anything? A: Cracker Jack was first made in 1896 by Rueckheim & Brother. The company became Rueckheim Bros. & Eckstein in 1902. Prizes were included in the packages beginning in 1912. Cracker Jack radios like this were made in the 1970s in Hong Kong for Just Products, a New York company. They sell for about $25. Q: My mother saved soakies, the plastic bottle that held shampoo or bubble bath about 25 years ago. They were shaped like bottles with people or animal heads. She bought them to use the soap and thought they would later become popular collectibles, like milk bottles. Where are they being sold? A: Soakies were popular as collectibles for a very short period of time in the late 1990s, and a few rare ones did sell for about $100. But the bottles were free and there still are a few used as packaging. Price is determined by supply and demand. There is a big supply and almost no demand. It is a suggested hobby that often doesnt attract collectors. Glass milk bottles were not popular with bottle collectors until the rarer earlier bottles became very expensive. Today a colored milk bottle or one with a war slogan or famous dairy name are the only ones selling for more than a few dollars. Collectors also search for the old round cardboard bottle caps, which sell for 25 cents to a few dollars each to go with the bottles. Q: When my husband and I were digging for old bottles, we found an interesting old clay pipe bowl, but no stem. The bowl has Wolfe 98 Tone on one side and 6-point star above a harp, clover and Erin on the other side. I dont think its worth anything, but Id like to know something about it. A: The harp is the national symbol of Ireland. The 6-point star represents the six counties of Northern Ireland. Wolfe Tone, whose full name was Theobald Wolfe Tone, was one of the leaders of the Irish rebellion of 1798. He was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1763 and was one of the founders of the Society of United Irishmen, which sought separation from Britain. Tone went to France to get French troops to support the revolt. The first attempt, made in 1796, failed because of bad weather. The Society planned another rebellion in 1798, but the British found out about it and the leaders were captured. Wolfe Tone and the French forces were defeated before they made land. He was captured and sentenced to death but took his own life in September 1798. You must have dug in an old dump field with broken pipes from the 1800s. A local historical society might be interested in knowing about your experience and the pipe bowls. Tip: Doors from a garage should have inside locks. Get a strong door. We know someone who came home to find a burglar had used an axe to open the door. COURTESY PHOTOThis 20th-century Flora Danica porcelain platter is 18 inches by 14 inches. The dish is fully marked on the bottom with factory marks and the impressed number 3520. Auction price, $984 in a Skinner Inc. auction in Massachusetts.

FletcherFound: James & Jeffreys estate sale, 5704 Georgia Ave., West Palm Beach. Next sale is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. March 1819. Info: or (800) 991-3499. Cost: $125 The Skinny: I love Florida landscapes and have a collection that includes a healthy mix of classic and contemporary works. Ida R. Fletcher lived in Lake Park, just north of West Palm Beach, and was a member of art leagues, according to articles published in in 1967. She lived a long life, too, dying in 1993 at age 99. I was attracted to the blue of the sky and the notion that an artist thought to document the domestic life of buzzards. It is not every day that one finds a painting of buzzards and depicts them in a domestic tranquility. When I was a boy, wed start out in the morning on State Road 80 from Fort Myers to the Glades and beyond to West Palm Beach. The road was a straight shot, at least until you got to U.S. 27 two lanes of bumpy blacktop that gave way to the hamlets and towns along the way. Ten miles or so east of Fort Myers was Alva, where the citrus groves lined the way to LaBelle. In LaBelle, you might stop for breakfast or Cokes (yes, they called it Co-Cola) at Whites Restaurant before picking up U.S. 27 about 10 miles west of Clewiston. Back then, there was even less between LaBelle and Clewiston than there is now pastures gave way to more pastures before giving way to fields of sugarcane. The development of Hendry Isles boasted a sign and a building, but little else. And on hot summer days, that bumpy blacktop shone with mirror-like mirages of the sun punctuated by buzzards feasting on carrion raccoons, possums, the occasional wild pig that had wandered into the paths of trucks and cars the night before. Goodness, but that road kill must have been tasty, because it took several blasts of the horn of my moms Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 to startle the birds into abandoning their meal and allowing her to pass. The buzzards generally flew off in a flurry only to return to their quarry as soon as the traffic had eased. I never thought much about where the buzzards lived when they werent dining a la carte on critters until I saw this painting, which probably dates from the 1960s. It reminded me of the bald eagles nests I saw at the tops of poles in pastures east of LaBelle during the 1970s. I smiled at the memory of those long ago trips, when State Road 80 seemed to stretch into infinity, just like my future. Scott Simmons stands ready for a trip from Fort Myers to Belle Glade in his mothers 1960 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 convertible around 1965 or He still has his grandmothers gray Amelia Earhart train case, and wishes he still had the car.

Emmy W., Land-o-Lakes, FloridaA: The gorgeous and talented actress is starring in a Lifetime Original movie, a thriller called Mommys Little Boy. And get ready for a departure from the Bree youre used to seeing. She plays an alcoholic, neglectful mother who, when one of her sons accidentally drowns in a pool, takes her other son on a harrowing journey of abuse with explosive secrets. I recently spoke with Bree about her latest role, and she told me: It was really a great character to play because you can really do a lot with her, and it was fun and not something Ive ever done before. As a mother, shes like: They have a roof over their head; they have a nice house; they have a pool. What else do they need? Shes a selfish person; shes always me first and them later. They are an annoyance to her. The kids need mothering, they need guidance, but they are somehow annoying to her, and she feels they are doing it on purpose. Shes twisted. Shes like: You need me to actually buy you food? Youre so annoying! Why cant you just do it yourself?

Its packed with roasted chicken, lettuce, tomato, roasted red peppers and fresh buffalo mozzarella, all topped with pesto and a yummy chipotle aioli and neatly swaddled in a fresh tortilla (I recommend the spinach one). One more thing: When youre really in a rush, grab a pre-made sandwich and hit the road. Nicole Ryan, PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Coastal Peruvian Seafood & Grill, 5477 Airport-Pulling Road N., Naples; 631-6943 Owners Chris and Fabiola Santos are hospitable and helpful as they introduce guests to the menu at their lovely establishment. We enjoyed the Ceviche 200 Miles, a sprightly blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, fish, red onions, sweet potato and corn that had a bite but wasnt fiery hot. Marina sliders held fried red snapper fillets topped with aji amarillo-pineapple chimichurri on firm, yeasty mini-buns. The Poseidon Fest was a montage of seafood cooked in the restaurants Josper oven, which renders proteins crisp outside, juicy within. And the Savage Tacu Tacu was a great rendition of rice and lentil pancakes with a tender skirt steak and sweet plantains. For dessert, youll want to try the chocolucuma, a pie with an Oreo crumb crust, caramelflavored lucuma and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille, 5370 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 6767777 The screened deck overlooking the bay is expansive and incomparable one of Coconut Jacks main attractions. With appetizers in the relatively pricey $11.95-$15.95 range, you might want to share them or make a lighter meal by sampling a few instead of ordering entrees. The tequila oysters Rockefeller offered a clever and delectable twist on a traditional dish. Our main course also presented some surprises: a dry grouper fillet under a panko crust and surprisingly good baby back ribs (for a seafood restaurant, no less). For dessert, the coconut cream pie from Dollys Produce Patch & Eatery is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2016 Ristorante Farfalla, 21301 Tamiami Trail, Estero; 495-9912 Chef-owner Michael Fattah has maintained his commitment to topshelf ingredients, freshly made pasta, lighter sauces and handmade desserts since opening Farfalla in 1998. No garlic knots or meatball subs here; calamari and penne alla vodka are the closest things to culinary clichs. Mr. Fattahs fresh pasta is a must-have, and it might be as dazzling as a special of squid ink and saffron fettuccine with littleneck clams, green mussels, shrimp and lobster. From the regular menu, you cant go wrong with one of the half-dozen veal dishes, the risottos or the handmade gnocchi. For dessert, the cannoli and cheesecake both are filled with an ethereal blend of ricotta and triple-cream mascarpone. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Jimmy Ps Charred, 1833 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 643-6238 Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Deli has long been the place where discerning chefs acquire their meats. Now those meats star at an adjoining steakhouse with a decidedly down-to-earth atmosphere. Chef Chris Degenova not only knows his way around meat, he makes his own burrata, focaccia, pasta, sauces and desserts. He also knows how to handle seafood. An exquisite tuna tartare was topped with truffle cream, quail egg, shoestring potatoes, shaved black truffles and edible flowers. A salad with burrata, heirloom tomatoes, golden beets, shaved black truffles and basil citrique was also excellent. The surf and turf consisted of a 6-ounce Wagyu petite filet mignon and 6-ounce lobster tail, accompanied by grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes). A lemon goat-cheese meringue with graham crust and wild berry coulis made a perfect finish. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2015

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT Every Night 8:30 p.m. until Close BEST MEDITERRANEAN FOOD CUISINE REVIEWNew chef and concept add up to a great catch at Ramada Inn There are properties that pass from hand to hand and fail to thrive. I was beginning to suspect that the Ramada Inns restaurant on Tamiami Trail might be one of those. While Pates lasted about eight years, Pompano Grill and Jimmys Bait and Tackle had much shorter runs. The sprawling 200-seat restaurant and bar needed something more than just OK to keep it filled and profitable. I read in the fall that a New Jersey family had taken ownership and planned to make it into a gastropub. And so they have, with the ever-so-creative Executive Chef David Lani, who provided much of the culinary inspiration behind the start of trendy 7th Avenue Social. Hes moved uptown a bit and his new place, Catch 41, is even more casual, but the food remains fun and fanciful, as youd expect from a Culinary Institute of America alum who has also succeeded in Las Vegas, a very competitive restaurant town. Catch 41 doesnt look vastly different from its predecessor, Jimmys. Loads of black and white fishing and vacation photos still line the walls as you walk in, and the turquoise walls of the bar and dining room are still draped with nets, shells and other marine kitsch. But it seems as if a wall has been removed between the bar and dining room and some booths have been eliminated to make a small area for a band. On the Saturday night of our visit, the group Rock Solid was in the house and doing a fine job of delivering just-loudenough renditions of songs by John Mellencamp, the Doobie Brothers, Eric Clapton and others. Meanwhile, a good-sized service staff was deployed around the room, attending to an equally good-sized crowd intent on enjoying themselves. Everything that came out of the kitchen and passed by our table looked terrific. I didnt order the Angus sliders, but quite a few other customers did and they looked fabulous: thick mini burgers tucked into Hawaiian rolls with grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, bacon, American cheese, Thousand Island dressing and pickles. Pretty much everything on the menu is scaled down so you dont feel guilty ordering a number of items well, we didnt anyway. The menu also features lots of locally caught fish and other local items, which you might not expect in a place like this. Ditto for the housemade infused cocktails. First up: cucumber mojitos ($9.50) mmmmm! These melded cucumber vodka, simple syrup, seltzer, lime, mint and fresh cucumber into a refreshing beverage that was delicious on its own and went just fine with our starters. The first consisted of three perfect Maryland style mini crab cakes, each dabbed with a bit of remoulade, topped with a little edible flower and served atop a bed of grilled Mexican street corn and chunks of cotija, a firm white cheese. Catch 41 offers three types of bao bun tacos ($9.50), which resemble the buns you get with Peking duck. Theres a choice of three varieties, and I chose one of each. I tried the crispy pork belly with charred jalapenos, mango, bourbon glaze and garlicky mayo first. It was a little messy, but the flavors and textures worked well together. The blackened shrimp with kim chee slaw and teriyaki glaze was equally messy and tasty. I think my favorite was the wild mushrooms with hoisin, onion and cucumber. The mushrooms were the stars of this little bun/taco and they were exceptionally rich, the condiments served to enhance their flavor. My companion opted for the nightly special red grouper served as sliders ($16.50). The other option is to have it cooked and served on a plate. The pieces of fish were flavorful but on the small side and got a bit lost amidst the lettuce, tomato, red onion and tartar sauce on them. The pair of mini hot butt er poached cold water lobster rolls ($19.50) started with classic hot dog rolls stuffed with lobster that was topped with garlic buerre blanc and a sprinkling of smoked paprika. Id have preferred larger chunks of lobster and a bit less sauce so the combination wasnt so rich, but one was plenty to satisfy me after the appetizer. We each ordered a side as well. My companion was happy with his crisp hand-cut fries ($4.50) and I loved my personal skillet of roasted cauliflower with garlic and Parmesan ($5.50). For dessert, we tried the stout beer milk chocolate pudding with beer cream ($6.50). A distinct beer flavor dominated the pudding, which is fine if you like beer. Its not my favorite thing, so I probably should have tried something else. Nonetheless, it had vanilla wafers throughout and lots of whipped cream along with fresh strawberries and blueberries, making for a dessert substantial enough to share. Service was excellent throughout the meal. Our server, Molly, was busy but managed to keep an eye on us throughout our meal. So did a manager who checked to see how we liked each course. An expediter delivered dishes so they didnt get cold sitting in the kitchen waiting to be served. If this place doesnt make it here, nothing will. Its a great catch and thats not a fish story.

Kalea Bay releases second tower as first tower approaches selloutPrices start at $1.3 million in Tower 1Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed this fall, has already surpassed the 80 percent sold mark, stated Inga Wilson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. All residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Wilson. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Wilson. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Wilson said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Wilson. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed this fall. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. The amenities at Kalea Bay rival some of the finest in the world, said Wilson. Our indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile.

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

SOBERON DESIGNER Q&ALISA FICARRATheres an elegant simplicity to the work of interior designer Lisa Ficarra of Ficarra Design Associates in Naples. Shes noted for timeless style and effortless attention to detail. Luxe Livings Michael Korb caught up with her to ask about her muses, her process and how she got started. Q: Is there one moment you can look back on that was pivotal to you wanting to be in this field? A: My dad was a builder and took me to job sites with him when I was a child. I loved watching a building grow into someones home. When I was freshman in college in the art program, I decided I wanted to pursue architecture. But my school didnt have an architecture program, so I joined the interior design program and took as many building and construction courses as I could. I pursued a position with an architect in New York doing interior design and realized that I could be more creative in interior design than architecture. Q; Where did you get your training, and how has that shaped the work you do now? A: I received my bachelors of science in interior design from Western Michigan University. I also studied in Italy my sophomore year and went back to work with an architect in Rome after I graduated. I took postgraduate courses at Parsons School of Design while working with an architect in New SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 brings a global background to her Naples projects This contemporary space combines living and dining areas under a unifying ceiling of floating beams.

Q&AFrom page 2York designing airline facilities. Then, while in Boston designing interiors for software companies, I attended continuing education classes at the Boston Architectural College and Harvard. My university education gave me my basic background in interior design, while my European travel and work experience with architects in Rome and New York gave me a perspective from the architects point of view. Now I incorporate my knowledge of architectural detailing into all of my interiors, whether contemporary or traditional. Q: How do you find inspiration for a project? A: My inspiration basically comes from my clients. We have our initial interview and I discover what type of feeling theyre considering for their new home and focus on their lifestyle. From there my inspiration might come from a few distinctive fabrics, patterns or colors we choose. I love using textures and different natural materials and mixing styles to create a unique look for each client. Q: How has the Naples market taste changed since you moved here? A: When I moved from Europe to Naples in 1995, the style here at the time was very traditional and very Tuscan. There were a lot of arches, columns and faux finishes in many houses. Today my Naples clients want simple, clean classic lines. We have more clients who are willing to cross into contemporary style. Naples has a wonderful group of talented designers who really strive to create tasteful and unique interiors. Q: Is there a trend you are excited to see go away? A: I am so glad the Tuscan Era is gone, and I know a lot of my colleagues feel the same way.

BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSometimes you just need a change. Yes, you could live with your kitchen. And technically, a lot of people might be totally fine with your powder room. But you after a few years OK, 12 years to be precise you probably are ready for something different. The owners of this now-lovely three bedroom, 3-bath condo in The Dunes certainly thought so and reached out to Wendy Berry of W Design Interiors to give their space new life. They bought the unit when the building was new and hired a designer to make it nice. And it was back then. It was well decorated at the time, says Ms. Berry. But now they were living in an out-of-date condo. They were either going to renovate or buy a new one. So they asked Ms. Berry and her team to come up with some 3-D renderings. After going through them room by room, the owners decided they would stay put and hired W Design Interiors to effect the changes that would make their home one they wanted to stay in. The only direction they gave us was that they wanted it to look fresh and more beach-y and to be a bit more transitional, says Ms. Berry. They decided to keep the large-scale 18-by-18-inch limestone tile throughout much of the main living area, but they removed as many walls as possible. The approximately 3,000-square-foot condo originally was very segmented, with a little living room, a little family room, a little dining room, etc. That is certainly not the case any longer, as it is now the very definition of an open concept design. When you remove walls from a condo, however, you create some challenges for things such as duct work and electrical. Ms. Berry added a drop ceiling above the new kitchen that not only creates a visual outline for the space, but that also allows for recessed can lighting and accommodates the range ventilation. They hang out in the kitchen all the time, and so we also gave them a huge peninsula, the 8 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY MAKEOVERTime for a changeA waterfront condo sheds its skin to become its better self e e TRICIA SHAY / COURTESY PHOTOSBeforeBeforeSEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 10 Above: The kitchen is the central focus of the residence.

12 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTaste. Its harder to quantify than you might expect. But when the owner of this lovely home was boating past this spot a few years ago while on vacation, he was struck by the areas beauty. It turned out the double lot he admired as he cruised by held a duplex that was a short sale and serendipity lent a helping hand. The Scandinavian gentleman, along with his wife, bought the property, razed the duplex and then sold off the second lot to help fund what you see on these pages: a simply stunning single-family getaway that blends perfectly into its surroundings. Not too big, not too small, the 2,400-square-foot (under air), three bedroom, 3-bath home has a modern shotgun sense to it as soon as you pass through the lipstick red front doors. They really understood the potential of the site, says architect Joyce Owens, who designed the structure. He saw that bay and didnt want anything in the house to miss that opportunity. So Ms. Owens designed it so you can look straight through from the main living area right out the back and onto a beautiful exterior space that seems to spill directly into the turquoise waters off the Isles of Capri near Marco Island. Before Joyce we had another architect designing a larger, two-story home, says the homeowner. But we thought maybe that wasnt the right thing to do. He and his wife wanted to maintain the peaceful and unpretentious style of the surrounding community. To that end, Ms. Owens delivered a beautifully modern and Modern styles, European flair and a fishermans sensibilities combine perfectly for a retreat on the Isles of CapriBANYAN PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS The Norwegian owners of this idyllic getaway on the Isles of Capri discovered the property while they were boating on vacation. They razed an existing duplex and hired architect Joyce Owens to create a single-family home that beautifully incorporates their Scandinavian sensibilities with the natural surroundings.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MARCH 2017 LUXE LIVING 13luxurious expression of a Florida fishing shack. They were very interested in having a contemporary design on that lot, but they had to be careful because there was nothing like that on the street, the architect says. But they wanted something to suit their taste. So you had to get the scale right and not make it overwhelming. Frankly, once the accompanying second lot was sold, it left a pretty tight space with which to work. But the homeowners, who have an exceptional amount of renovation experience with much larger homes in Europe, took the responsibilities of interior design upon themselves with great success. Perhaps nowhere is that more impressive than in the bathrooms. Because of the homes fairly small footprint, they decided to make the walls of the showers glass and incorporate them into the bedrooms. It makes the rooms feel much larger, the homeowner says. They also used some unique features that make the space very clean and modern. For example, all of the showers, rather than having tiles floors, have (granite) slabs like you would use on a kitchen counter, says the homeowner. So there are no seams or grout lines on the floors. The use of granite slabs was a first for the builder; they are also used at the entrance to the home. And all of the toilets are hung on the wall, he adds, so its a very clean look and very easy to maintain. And the tile work and lower ceilings in the showers work perfectly after all, theyre steam showers. Another slick decision: The homeowner had the builder lift the drywall just enough to all for the wide-plank, white oak flooring to slide underneath. This allowed for stainless steel kick plates to be used instead of traditional baseboards. Which brings us to the galley kitchen, which is defined by a lowered ceiling that hangs via wire cables. We didnt want any pillars, so we just hung it with steel wire, says the homeowner. Its sort of like a nautical thing. Those wires are used on sailboats. Stainless steel shows up in another unusual place in the kitchen as well: the large island. We love stainless, but to be honest, I couldnt find a granite slab big enough and I didnt want a seam in the middle of it, the homeowner says about the striking expanse of countertop. So as not to distract from it, none of the kitchen appliances are in stainless steel. And speaking of seamless, a generous expanse of ipe wood decking surrounds an infinity edge pool that appears to spill seamlessly into the bay. Its accompanying spa flows over on all sides, giving users a spectacular tiered visual of water upon water. The property has a mid-century vibe that skews modern and yet pays homage to surrounding nature. Obviously we liked the modern design, says the homeowner. But at the same time, being Norwegian and with my grandfather a commercial fisherman (back in the day) I like that vaulted style. Almost like a boathouse, but bigger obviously. Lets just call it beautifully appropriate. Architecture Joyce Owens 2281 Main St., Fort Myers 425-5773 Gulfstream Homes/ ARCS Construction 2244 Trade Center Way, Naples 254-1664 Above: A lack of large-scale granite slabs resulted in a stunning stainless steel countertop on the massive kitchen island. It sets the tone for the kitchen, which is de ned by a suspended ceiling, giving the space some separation from the main living area. Above, left and far left: Slabs of granite as ooring in the showers not only look great, they eliminate seams and grout, which makes maintenance a breeze. lbfitfthbildthl g e d COVER STORY

BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen I moved to the area several years ago and began interviewing interior designers, Id regularly hear about this mystical spot known as Treasure Island. Mostly the designers mentioned it as an aside someplace where theyd say they made an incredible find and leave it at that. Not being a local, I assumed they were talking about someplace on the Treasure Coast, across the state around Palm Beach. A year or two later I happened to be driving down Central Avenue and was astonished to see Treasure Island Antiques. I immediately made a U-turn (probably illegally) and found myself in a place of wonder. Forty-plus antique dealers under one roof, with hidden gems around every corner. You could and probably should spend an entire day exploring. Within its 12,000-square-foot space youll find everything from mid-century furnishings to Asian art to high-end estate jewelry. It truly is a treasure hunt each and every time you walk in. Thats how it felt to owner Wilton Wood when he purchased the store four years ago. Mr. Wood was a veteran who had gotten into private security contracting for the government overseas. But he was looking for a business, and when he saw the for-sale ad for Treasure Island, he thought it was worth checking out. Antiques are history, and I love history, he says. Everything has a story, and I love that you can never know everything there is to know about antiques and vintage items. Theres always something to learn. He wasnt even looking for a retail shop or an antiques store when Treasure Island caught his attention. Its an eclectic mix of stuff from hundreds of years ago to modern and everything in between, he says. And its nothing that you would find in the big box stores. If you want something unusual or different or funky, this is the place to find it. Treasure Island almost defies description. From vintage lithographs to Florida kitsch to historic furnishings, its here. I once almost bought a 9-foot wrought iron chandelier there before I realized I had no way to get it home or anyplace to put it if I could get it there. Even so, I still have nonbuyers remorse. But the good thing is that all you have to do is plan another visit to the shop to find your next great discovery. Mr. Wood and the dealers within will be happy to show you around anytime.

22 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMFor most people, the first day of spring is March 20. For baseball fans, however, spring starts about a month earlier when Major League Baseball pitchers and catchers report to their Spring Training camps in Florida. This spring, the fishing retreat of one of baseballs all-time best hitters is for sale. Seventeen-time all-star Ted Williams spent his entire MLB career with the Boston Red Sox, taking time out to serve as a Navy pilot in World War II and the Korean War. A six-time batting champion, Mr. Williams was twice the American Leagues Most Valuable Player and Triple Crown Award winner. A a roster of nicknames described his playing style: Teddy Ballgame, The Thumper, The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived and Splendid Splinter, among htem. By the end of his career that ran from 1939-1960, he had a lifetime .344 batting average, 521 home runs, last player to hit over .400 and a career 0.482 on-base percentage the highest in MLB history. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966. Baseball wasnt Mr. Williams only interest. He was an avid sports fisherman, hosted a television fishing show, did Sears fishing commercials and was inducted into the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame. Fishing was always a great hobby and diversion from his baseball career, and during his downtime he enjoyed casting practice off his dock at his place in the Florida Keys. Now for sale is the retreat where he lived and honed his fishing/casting skills until the early 1990s. Its the ideal location in Upper Matecumbe Key on Islamorada, in a protected cove surrounded by deep tropical landscape. Totally private, the site has bay views and is also in walking distance of Islamoradas restaurants and shops. Its a short boat ride to some of the best fishing spots in Florida. On 1.38 fenced and gated acres, the 3,193-square-foot house has four bedrooms, four baths and guesthouse with three bedrooms. Theres an infinity pool and spa with a protected dock. Cheri Tindall of Ocean Sothebys International Realty has the listing for $4.2 million.
