MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA AND TARPON SPRINGS matterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYDont wannaThere are things we do some of us dont want to do. Go to school, for example: Federal law requires every young American be schooled. And all the rest of us have to help pay for it. But why? Or, says the government, we have to maintain a standing army, with a navy and an air force. Again, why? Some of us dont want to. So why do all of us have to help? All of us pay taxes, too. But what if we dont want to? If you want to pay taxes, you go right ahead and pay taxes. I dont wanna, they say. You buy roads that you dont travel, you fix bridges to places you dont go, you hire police who subdue criminals who dont attack you, you support firefighters who save some elses bacon, not yours. I dont wanna. And you go ahead and support public art, the silliest of excesses. Why should I? The last question is particularly sensitive since art isnt a tool or a gun it isnt a new highway or a school, a park or an F-35 fighter. No. Art just hangs there on the wall in a frame or drifts away on the wind in a fading chord. Or it disappears into space and memory when the curtain falls. Art, it seems, is nothing. So why should Americans have to support it? Those questions are the bugle-call of retreat, according to Winston Churchill, a man unsuited to moving backward. The arts are essential to any complete national life, he said in 1938. The State owes it to itself to sustain and encourage them Ill fares the race which fails to salute the arts with the reverence and delight which are their due. Its a stormcock notion given the Nazi assault on western civilization picking up speed and rolling toward him like a tsunami, at that point. And now we come to this: The 45th American president his nation the champion of western progress in the darkest 20th-century hours has decided 17 years into the fledgling 21st to cut arts spending from the American budget. Completely. So he can boost the military budget, apparently. Pure pragmatism, you reckon? President Trump is a realist and art is inessential? Take a 5-gallon bucket. Spit into it. Fill it with water. Youll have a fair representation of the size of the arts budget lost in the sea of everything else we Americans buy. But every penny counts, right? In the United States, the annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts, the federal agency that offers grants to artists in all 50 states, is $148 million. Thats mere spit in a bucket. Nevertheless, why should any of us have to pay even one cent of that money, some ask? At this spittle level of spending, we could conduct 16 or 17 days of effort against ISIL at roughly $9 million per day, the cost of military operations, by government estimates. At this spittle level of spending, come 2019 we could buy one F-35 Joint Strike Fighter at about $85 million and have enough left over to fund five more days of the ISIL War. At this spittle level of spending, average taxpayers in the U.S. are pumping out about 46 cents. Not per day, not per week, not per month, but 46 cents per year less than a penny a week. In Finland in recent years theyve paid $91 per person, annually; in Germany, $85; in France and Sweden, $57; in Canada (O Canada!), $46; and in the United Kingdom, $36 per taxpayer, per year, estimates show. But Winston Churchill was also a pragmatist, like Stuart Brown, a professor of theater at Florida SouthWestern State College. Neither of them would reckon art exists for its own sake. Instead, art remains an unruly town crier, a court fool as essential as breath, shelter and food to a full life. In a free society, artists are the first ones who ask questions, Professor Brown told me the other day. Why are we invading Vietnam or Iraq? Why are we poisoning the water? In November, he directed a student production of Paragon Springs, a 2010 Stephen Dietz play based on Henrik Ibsens, An Enemy of the People, describing the actions of local government officials when they learn whats poisoning their warm mineral springs, a big-money tourist attraction. He even brought in Dr. Marc Edwards to talk about it a MacArthur Foundation genius grant winner and professor at Virginia Tech who proved that federal, state and local officials in Flint, Mich., knew the citys water was lead poisoned long before they let the public know, and as children became sick. Dr. Edwards pointed to those plays as paragons of revelatory art that helped him put his whistleblowing work in perspective. Artists are a bunch of troublemakers, Professor Brown admits. They ask questions about bad things, and they ask questions about good things. You want to call them into your office and say, Youre a pain in the butt, but I need to hear what you have to say. Artists ask us to reconsider, to look at things more broadly, more closely, more deeply which is why the U.S. should always support them, even if some dont wanna. The president, however, doesnt want to look at things that way. He doesnt want to hear things questioned. And he doesnt think we need to see or hear what artists have to say, either. He thinks art should exist for its own sake, and not for ours. t p c A r roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

They gathered together from across the borders of the old Confederacy. Their goal was an economic pact to unite the region and annihilate the terrible poverty stalking the land. Together, they would promote a new wave of economic development in the South and improve the quality of life for all Southerners. They founded a nonprofit, The Southern Growth Policies Board, or SGPB, to carry out their vision. Its capstone wasnt sexy, but it communicated the organizations purpose and function. A blue-ribbon board mandated the agency gather intelligence and serve as a vessel of learning for state lawmakers and the private sector. They targeted the powerbrokers who had their hands on the lever of social and economic change in the South. The year was 1972. The agency armed its self with cuttingedge, economic development research conducted by the Souths best and brightest. Its reports and publications became the focus of groundbreaking, high-level events among key stakeholders. SGPB activities were designed to challenge and change the conversation about economic development in the South. It promoted innovation, entrepreneurship, leadership, and technology. The Future of the South was its rallying cry, higher wage skills, and higher-paying jobs its goal. It urged lawmakers to adopt new ways of thinking about job creation, and end the regions dependence on cheap labor as its competitive edge in the competition among states for jobs. Many Southern lawmakers warmed to the cause, though some less enthusiastically than others. They were wary of the challenges and changes ahead. But still, all the great houses of state government were paying attention. They had good reason. The regions poverty was endemic and pernicious. It was the Souths Mark of Cain. The cycle of its perpetuation consigned millions to barren shanties and a life of struggle to just get by. The regions economy lagged far behind the rest of the nation. The rural landscape was stripped of its abundance by its relentless exploitation. Towns were dying. The pockets of prosperity were modest and far between. Education was hobbled by racism and schools that were separate and unequal. Educational mediocrity was the price paid by all to sustain the peculiarity of the regions racial apartheid. Human capital withered on the vine. If race and class did not anoint ones prospect with privilege, you fled, almost always northward. Or you stayed, a prisoner of personal circumstance, a Sisyphus bound forever to dreams deferred. The story repeated itself until it stamped every place with its telling. Anyone attempting to burnish the Souths sorry reputation was met with cynicism and pity. Southerners carried the Souths stereotypes with them. Its image was dirt floors, white trash, shiftless blacks and rebel rednecks, bound together in the hopeless mire of a plantation economy. It was a human and economic tragedy played out on a national stage, shameful to those who sought to rise above it; and dangerous to those who questioned the authority producing it. Still and all, it was the 20th century. The region was losing the race toward modernity. Its economy was burdened by the weight of the past. Something had to be done. Southern progressives had long dreamed of the New South. Henry Grady, the spirited editor of The Atlanta Constitution, was the first, back in the 1880s. He urged the South to embrace industrialization, enter the American mainstream, and shed its past of poverty and injustice. He was followed 75 years later by Ralph McGill, his editorial descendant, but he, too, witnessed the regions commitment to American ideals wither away under the assault of right-wing populists, the hope of justice and equity for millions extinguished by the radicals for many more decades. By the 1980s, the SGPB had gained momentum and was again knocking on the door of the old status quo. For too long, the South had depended on hands for working and not minds for thinking. The region needed no, it must grow beyond its dependence on tax giveaways and cheap labor as its principal means of stimulating economic growth. It argued for aggressive, long-term investments in the regions human capital and promoted entrepreneurship regionwide. Using these strategies, the South would move up the value chain, end its dependence on cheap labor and build and attract industries with good paying jobs. The idea held sway but briefly. It was easier for lawmakers to declare victory by snagging companies with hefty taxpayer subsidies in exchange for the promise of jobs created. Concern for job quality was trumped by lets make a deal. The Souths brain drain was a further disincentive for lawmakers to do anything dramatically different. In the end, author Gavin Wright observed, as a low-wage region in a highwage country, the South had no expectation that it could capture the return on investment in its own people. If you think about it, even now, not much has changed. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Yet this is a Trump administration talking point. White House press secretary Sean Spicer recently told reporters, When we get asked the question, How many people are going to get covered? thats not the question that should be asked. Pressed on the merits of the bill by George Stephanopoulos on ABCs This Week, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney shot back, Youre worried about getting people covered. As if thats a woeful mistake. This is a strange rhetorical tack for officials in an administration led by a president who pledged to cover everyone. Nor is it substantively or political defensible. Repealing and replacing Obamacare will require every ounce of persuasiveness that Republicans can muster, especially with the Congressional Budget Office now estimating that under Trumpcare, 14 million fewer people will be insured in 2018. The early signs arent encouraging. It is true that health insurance isnt a panacea. There is an academic debate about whether having health insurance leads to longer lives, and all sorts of factors besides insurance affect health and the quality of medical care (geography, for instance, can have more of an impact on care than whether someone is insured).Still, there is abundant evidence of the benefits of insurance. Research has found that Romneycare in Massachusetts improved measures of physical and mental health. A Rice University study of the Houston area found that people with insurance report being in better health than those who lack it. If nothing else, insurance is protection against catastrophic health expenses and provides a sense of security.Republicans obviously shouldnt accept the premises of their detractors. By all means, they should hit the dubious methodology of the CBO, which vastly overestimated how many people would be covered on the Obamacare exchanges in the first place. And they should point out Obamacares manifest failings, including an overreliance on the deeply flawed Medicaid program and insurance exchanges that are shaky at best (the executive of Aetna recently said they are in a death spiral). But the best response to criticisms that Trumpcare doesnt cover enough people is simple and more fundamental to get the coverage numbers up. If the headline-grabbing numbers from the CBO dont prompt the GOP to realize this, nothing will. Making the tax credit in the Republican plan more generous further down the income scale would be a start. President Trumps promises about universal coverage arent achievable, but to lurch in the other direction and dismiss the significance of health insurance is politically poisonous. At its best, the Trump phenomenon pointed to a GOP more grounded in the economic realities of working-class life. It is remarkable, then that the first major legislative priority out of the box is being sold, in part, in stereotypically Republican terms, and by Trumps own team. Before going further down this road, they should think about why Trump, with his keen gut-level political instinct, never told audiences or interviewers that hed be fine with fewer people having insurance, and adjust their rhetoric and their plan accordingly.

As is often the case in matters of the heart, the Celebrity Martini Glass Auction (CMGA) all started with dinner and a movie. Not just any film, but the theatrical release of the highly anticipated feature Sex and the City. Brenda gathered her friends for a screening event, asking each to design a martini glass as a toast to Sex and the Citys other breakout star: the Cosmopolitan cocktail. Two years later, after thinking about how some of the glasses were truly works of art, she dusted off her marketing skills and asked the films stars to sign glasses for her Sex and the City 2 debut party. To her surprise and delight, everyone agreed. Then she had to figure out what to do with the signed and designed glasses. Since the event was all about a movie, she decided to give the signed glasses to the fledgling Naples International Film Festival, which auctioned off the glasses and raised $15,000. Fast-forward several years and the CMGA has raised well over $1 million for charities. For the past three years, proceeds have been dedicated to veteran causes PAWS Assistance Dogs and Honor Flight. My father and my husband both served, so veteran issues are close to my heart, says Brenda. The 2017 CMGA takes place Sunday, March 26, at ArtisNaples For more information, visit www.NaplesCMGA.com. bobHARDENbobharden@hotmail.com Mentor(s): My husband. Hes the smartest man I know.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwhose doors are open to all. In a world of Do Not Enter, the center beckons Please Come In, a message notably upheld by its inclusive afterschool program that welcomes all school-age children, regardless of ability or economic status. About one-third of the students in the afterschool program have special needs. It was precisely that the centers mission of inclusion and its blended population of after-schoolers that caught the attention of Gulfshore Opera. Last year, the opera company received a Southwest Florida Community Foundation grant to expand its Harmony Choir program, which offers children of the greatest need the opportunity to dive in and experience a world of culture through the arts, to four programs at no cost to students. Two are in Fort Myers (Heights Center and PACE Center for Girls). One is centered at the Boys & Girls Club in Port Charlotte. And now, the Harmony Choir program has been incorporated in River Parks afterschool program. River Park recreation supervisor Lynn Clarke, who is also a certified therapeutic recreational specialist, feared her afterschool group of kids of all sizes, shapes and colors and varying exceptionalities might overwhelm Harmony Choir curriculum director Lois Carme and Gulfshore Opera education outreach coordinator Kate Peterson when the two visited to observe one afternoon. Instead, Ms. Clarke recalls, Ms. Carmes first comment was, Isnt this wonderful! On the second visit, Ms. Carme brought instruments for the nonverbal children, and thus Harmony Choir was integrated into River Parks afterschool program. All students are welcome to join in, two afternoons a week, for exercises in choral music, dance, musicianship and percussion all of which, ultimately, enhance their sense of social well being. The in-between hoursAt around 3 p.m., busses start rolling in at River Park Community Center with afterschool students, some needing assistance, some in wheelchairs. The children eagerly participate in the late afternoon session with Ms. Carme, who, for more than an hour, engages them in music and dance, teaching them songs with corresponding movement, adding percussion to the experience. From grade-school age to older than 20, roughly one-third of the students have special needs diagnoses. And they all want and need the opportunity to express themselves to the level of their ability. Ms. Carme takes her position at the front of the class, corralling the group of more than 20 students. As some leave for home and others arrive on late busses, she continues to command their attention with direct and unfailing positivity. Im the best singer in the world! declares Shayla Damas. Without missing a beat, Ms. Carme at once affirms the young ladys proclamation and instructs the class with, Why dont we sit right here on the floor? Those who can, do. And they are rapt. Nice listening! Ms. Carme exclaims. She makes a few announcements, ending with the big news of the day: Ms. Clarke has ordered tambourines for every single one of you. The students react in a collective excitement that cannot be orchestrated or contained. Ms. Carme lets them have their moment and then regains their attention: OK, first step: warm-ups. As most of the students step sideto-side, clap high and low and perform simple ball-change dance movements, Ms. Clarke attends to the needs of a young woman confined to a wheelchair. The students disability renders her physically hypertonic and unable to communicate, but she loves the music. Her bracelet of bells allows her to participate in the all-inclusive Harmony Choir as the group sings songs ranging from the inspirational (You Raise Me Up) to the silly (Fish is Delish). Ms. Carme taught the children sign language to the song Dont Laugh At Me, with lyrics that include Dont call me names. Dont get your pleasure from my pain. The students sing and sway to the accompaniment emanating from the teachers boom box. There are lots of words here, Ms. Carme says encouragingly. Yes! Youre doing a great job! Their eyes are fixed on her as they begin to master a new language, expressively communicating with their hands. Earlier this month, Ms. Carme introduced tap dance to the students, using tap shoes Ms. Clarke found stored in the center. One boy, J.C., who has limited use of his legs, sits on the edge of the stage during Harmony Choir time. When tap was introduced, he began tapping on the edge of the stage and moving to the jazz dance from the hips up. To the delight of Ms. Carme, J.C. is developing the art of adaptive tap dancing. The River Park Harmony Choirs inaugural concert in December last year marked a first performance for many of the centers students. Before the next concert at the center (date TBA), the group will perform the National Anthem before a Miracle baseball game at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers on April 9, and with the three other Harmony Choirs in Southwest Florida at ArtisNaples Community Day on May 7.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 NEWS A9she founded The Sounds of Silence, a dance program in Framingham, Mass., for deaf and multi-handicapped students. How does one teach dance to people who cannot hear? She found a way, learning sign language and teaching her students to dance, adapting the typically auditory sensory process to a specialized visual one. Id have them feel the beat, count the beat, stand in front of mirrors Summing up the three-year process of instructing by trial and error, she concludes, It was magnificent. Its the most amazing thing Ive ever done in my life. Because her father suffered infantile paralysis, Ms. Carme grew up with him being labeled handicapped. More than most people, she understands the underlying abilities of people with disabilities. It was something I was actually comfortable with, she says. She calls the afterschool program at River Park the most inclusive program in the state of Florida for children who have exceptionalities. Throughout her coursework as she earned advanced degrees, and during her distinguished careers in teaching and law (she holds a juris doctor), she has been a tireless advocate for people with disabilities. She is the author of two books, Sounds of Silence: Worlds of Dance and Yes I Can, featuring a crow destined to be music conductor. She is in the process of writing her third book, Yes I Can Dance, about the heroes she dances with every day: those with disabilities and those without. The recreation supervisorMs. Clarke calls Ms. Carme quite possibly one of the most beneficial assets to Gulfshore Operas Harmony Choir. Clearly, shes a creative asset to the community centers afterschool program two days a week. Ms. Clarke has been the recreation supervisor of the River Park Community Center for 11 years. Prior to that, she was employed by Collier County Parks and Recreation and increased program participation by kids with disabilities by 200 percent in two years. At River Park, she oversees all programming, including adult art, Zumba, AARP tax sessions, public meetings everything from weddings to funerals, she says. She has a special place in her heart for providing the communitys children, regardless of ability, a safe and enriching environment between when school lets out and when their parents finish work. We serve an unbelievable amount of needs, she says about the center. She explains that River Park was established as a predominantly black neighborhood whose residents worked in service professions. When George Washington Carver High School was torn down, Ms. Clarke says the cafeteria was retained and the River Park Community Center was built. Its a community center thats actually IN a community, she says, and everyone is welcome. She tells the story of an older gentleman who arrives at the center to exercise, using a cane for support. When he leaves, he often forgets and leaves his cane behind. Its a perfect analogy for Ms. Clarke: You leave here better than when you came, she says. Thats also true for the many families whose children attend River Parks afterschool program. I feel the world got a little better because we took someone in that others would have said no to. We make a difference in not only a childs life, but in the entire familys. She cites one family in which the father has medical issues and twin boys both have autism. When the twins are in the centers care, the mom can actually go to the grocery store and attend to the Gulfshore Operas Harmony Choir>> Gulfshore Operas Harmony Choir is a youth development program that seeks to affect social wellbeing through the pursuit of musical excellence. It is delivered at no cost to participants for children and families with the fewest resources and the greatest need.

Some people who hear about this sort of (inclusive) program may think kids with disabilities hold back the other kids, Ms. Clarke says. On the contrary, theyre teaching them compassion and acceptance. Cases of bullying are shortlived at River Park. Bullies bully out of fear, Ms. Clarke says. Here, kids can ask questions about anything they want to enlighten them and gain experience. And that, she says, takes away the fear that breeds bullying. Inclusion is embraced much more than it was 10 or 15 years ago, especially when parents see that their kids are growing, she says. Were teaching life skills here. When a kid gets his first invitation to a birthday party, theres such excitement for the kid. And its exciting for Ms. Clarke, too. I helped make that happen. As an employee of the city of Naples, shes grateful for the citys support. We are changing peoples lives, she says of the kids, the parents and the community in general. Thats not something you can put on a spreadsheet.A whole new worldThe integrated afterschool programs at River Park Community Center from cooking and nutrition to the art of deep breathing and that of the Harmony Choir are enriching the lives of children and their families in Naples. These guys are getting such an experience, Ms. Clarke says. The center meets the needs of many families, including those with special needs children and those enduring financial hardship. To all these families, the center is a refuge providing safety, social enrichment and cultural enlightenment. In a world that so often says No to people in need, there is a haven in the city of Naples where special needs are met with a resounding Yes.

Childrens activities begin and a walk-through tent with hundreds of live butte rflies opens at 10 a.m. The memorial service starts at noon and will include inspirational readings, music and a name-reading ceremony to honor the lives of loved ones. At the conclusion of the service, the exhibit tent will open, allowing more than 500 butter flies to float into the sky. The butte rfly is a reminder of how beautiful, delicate and fragile life can be, so that we should remember to appreciate and be grateful for each moment, says Jaysen Roa, Avow president and CEO. Many view the butterfly as a symbol of joy, happiness, rebirth and renewal, he adds. The Avow butterfly release is generously endowed by the Gorlach family. Admission is free. Early arrival is recommended to allow for parking, check-in, and time to experience the butterfly exhibit prior to the start of the ceremony. Those who wish to have a loved ones name read during the remembrance ceremony can do so by donating $40 per name (through March 24) to support Avows hospice and community programs. A limited number of name registrations will be available on the day of the event for $50 per name, prior to the start of the ceremony. To register a name for the remembrance ceremony or for more information about the event, call Avow at 6493683 or visit www.avowcares. org/butte rflyrelease.

(a miniature design incorporating a shoe). Judging and awards will be in accordance with Standard Flower Show rules and regulations established by National Garden Clubs Inc. Ms. Pica has been involved with Naples Garden Club for almost 20 years and during that time has created entries of all shapes and sizes, from miniature to 8 feet tall, for the annual show. She describes her arrangements as more modern than traditional not something you would see at a florist shop and says they usually incorporate fresh flowers, dried wood or vines and various mechanics required to manipulate the arrangements raw materials into a pleasing design. In the scheme of human evolution, a modern flower arrangement is a pretty revolutionary concept considering the lengths mankind has traversed just to get a dependable crop of potatoes to store for winter. But the course of history plows on, and gardening enthusiasts and designers like Ms. Pica can depend on a reliable supply of beautiful botanicals to sculpt. She proclaims that shes not a grower, and while she gathers some materials from the easy-to-manage bromeliads and crotons she keeps at home, she usually avails herself of what she can order from far-flung locales like Hawaii or Puerto Rico, or what she finds in florist shops or grocery stores. And because of the ephemeral nature of flowers, she constructs most of her designs within a day or two of showing. Flowers are a wonderful, natural, well-designed medium for her creativity, especially since she claims she cant draw a straight line. Im the worst artist God ever made, she said. Somehow or other Im able to do it with flowers. As a rule, she said, she and her fellow members of Naples Garden Club are not into grandma bouquets or flowers in a jar. Manipulation and style are key to their sophisticated designs. Ms. Picas submissions in the flower show are among 72 floral designs the club will judge. Also on view will be approximately 300 horticulture submissions (using fresh materials grown by the exhibitors) for the growers in FLOWERSFrom page 1SEE FLOWERS, A18

There is a good way to do that, I found, but it involves some travel and plunging into cool water in a wet suit with snorkel gear. You cant swim with manatees just anywhere. But you can in Citrus County at The Plantation on Crystal River, a resort and spa 65 miles north of Tampa. The resort rests beside the Gulf of Mexico and is surrounded by the springs of King's Bay. This bay, in Crystal River, is one of the largest aquifers in the state and home to more than 500 West Indian manatees. Related to the elephant, with wrinkled, leathery skin, manatees are propelled by huge, powerful tails. They swim slowly, quietly lumbering along. The big sweethearts can weigh as much as 3,000 pounds. Swimming with them surrounds you with tons of tenderness, I say. Before jumping in, guests at the Plantation watch a manners for swimmers video. (They learn, for example, not to swim under the sea cows, because that makes them nervous). Underwater in a wet suit, you can approach them quietly, and they seem to appreciate that approach. Speedboats frighten them, which is understandable, since propellers and boat hulls can inflict serious or mortal wounds. Manatee tours are offered year-round at Plantations Adventure Center & Dive Shop. During prime manatee viewing season, from Oct. 1 to March 31, depending on temperatures, guests can swim with manatees as they play, eat, and socialize with one another. The resort provides snorkel equipment and some lessons for those who want to swim in the cool (72 degree) water with the manatee. The Plantation sits on 232 acres of preserve land that is home to hundreds of birds including osprey, sandhill cranes, blue heron, red bellied warblers and grey horned owls. Built in the early 1960s, the Plantation recently went through a multimilliondollar renovation of guest rooms, lobby, lounge and dining room. If swimming with manatees isnt your thing, dont worry. This Old Florida resort known for its Southern hospitality has much more to offer, including a full-service spa, restaurant, an 18-hole golf course, heated pool, tennis, fitness center and a dive shop and marina with pontoon, jon boat, canoe and kayak rentals. Perhaps the Plantations most famous early guest was Elvis Presley, who stayed during the filming of the musical Follow That Dream. Looking for more underwater entertainment? A 30-minute drive to Spring Hill will get you to Mermaidville (also known as Weeki Wachee Springs). The Plantation on Crystal River has 196 rooms and 12 villas. Ask about specials for shing, golf, scalloping, romance and swimming with the manatees. For reservations or information, call (352) 795-4211. For more information about the Adventure Center & Dive Shop, call (800) 632-6262. Manatee swim packages start at $269 for two and include one nights accommodations, breakfast, manatee tour with all equipment and a gift bag.

Donate them to help bring Special Olympics star to townNaples-based nonprofit Character and Thought Foundation is raising funds to help bring Loretta Claiborne, the most decorated Special Olympics athlete in history, to Southwest Florida to visit to Collier and Lee county schools and communities April 27-29. A world-renowned runner and inspirational speaker, Ms. Claiborne was born in York, Pa., in 1953 with physical and mental special needs. A social worker recognized her talent and introduced her to the Special Olympics in 1971. In addition to many Special Olympics events, Ms. Claiborne also qualified, trained for and ran in the Boston Marathon in 1981, the first Special Olympics athlete to do so. She placed among the top 100 women that year and again in 1982. Since then she has finished more than 25 marathons, including the Pittsburgh Marathon in 1988, where she finished among the top 25 women runners. She was awarded the ESPN ESPY Arthur Ashe Award for Courage in 1996. Her life story has been shared in the Walt Disney Productions movie The Loretta Claiborne Story and in the WorldScapes biography In Her Stride. During her visit to Southwest Florida, she will share her positive message with students, local Special Olympics athletes and the general public. To help pay for her visit, the Character and Thought Foundation is collecting new and gently worn shoes that will in turn be purchased by Funds2Orgs, an Orlando-based organization that helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Funds2Orgs will redistribute the shoes purchased from Character and Thought throughout its network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. The recipients in those countries sell the shoes and use the proceeds to feed, clothe and house their families. One entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school. In addition to helping pay for Ms. Claibornes visit to Southwest Florida, proceeds from the shoe drive will benefit Special Olympics FloridaCollier County. Shoes can be dropped off at the Greater Naples YMCA at 5450 YMCA Road. For more information, call the Character and Thought Foundation at 2506947 or email characterandthoughtinc@ gmail.com. CLAIBORNE
A24 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELJames Bond to Rockefeller, Amelia Island delivers legends on wheelsThe Amelia Island Concours dElegance is one of those great shows because the enthusiasts are the real winners. After all, they awarded a 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C and 935 Duesenberg SJ-582 as the Best in Show for the sport and elegance classes, respectively, but thats far from the whole story. Because while those are flawlessly beautiful, they might just be two of the least interesting cars at this years event. Its not that these winners are boring, but instead, Amelia Island devotes an entire day to featuring the best automotive tales around. For example, there was a 1966 Rolls-Royce Phantom V limousine that Nelson Rockefeller spent years hunting down. And when he finally purchased the one he wanted, fate intervened in 1974 and he was appointed vice president. Being a good politician, Rockefeller couldnt be seen in something so foreign and opulent in his new, elevated position. So he never got to enjoy it. Another great story is James Bonds Aston Martin DB5. The car from 1965s Goldfinger turned Sean Connery and the automaker into legends. There were two DB5s used for the film. Since one disappeared from Boca Raton 20 years ago, having the only known survivor in the Cars of the Movies class was a Blofeld-level coup. Attendees were not only able to get so close to this star car that they could see the little red ejector seat butt on, but also it was an opportunity to get personal with other great movie vehicles. This includes the 1959 Corvette Stingray concept racer that Elvis drove in 1967s Clambake, the 1949 Buick Roadmaster from Rain Man, as well as the 1967 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4S NART Spider in Steve McQueens The Thomas Crown Affair. Among the many reasons Amelia Island is favored by enthusiasts is it tends to celebrate vehicles that other prestigious car events would not. For example, the Mercedes 300 SL coupes are always a favorite for their sleek bodywork. But one of these rare luxury speed machines was retooled for a land speed record by stripping out its leather-clad interior and adding a gaudy hood scoop large enough to inhale a small animal. Other shows would turn their noses at this Mercedes hot rod, but Amelia Island showcases the independent spirit that brought home a 190 mph world record. This inclusive nature has even inspired the carmakers. Nissans luxury arm Infiniti has been around for less than thirty years, but it are getting serious about its extended heritage. Nissan purchased a car company called Prince in the 1960s. Its lineup consisted of larger and more powerful vehicles. And while we might have never heard of Prince in the U.S., its influence was felt with some of the Datsun (later Nissan) sports cars. Infiniti is now taking a more active role in claiming Princes history, and that was first seen when they had an ultrarare R380 racecar brought in from Japan. It was the toast of its home country in the late 1960s, but Amelia Island was the first time it was ever shown in the U.S. And Japanese cars were not the only ones we had been missing for over half a century. The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Super Sport concept car was a styling exercise that featured everything from body side scoops to cup holders. But the real reason it was so important is because it was used to debut the production 283ci, 283 hp fuel-injected V8 an impressive feat at the time to get one horsepower per cubic-inch. The Corvette Super Sport toured New York, Detroit and Chicago before ending up in private hands. And while the car was important, accident damage and legal battles kept it out of the public eye since the 1960s. So to see it restored and driving at Amelia Island demonstrates the gravity and reputation of this Florida show. Those of us who love classic cars also crave a great story to go with them. Amelia Island constantly encores these lost and forgotten keystones to our rolling history. And the fact that its in our own Florida backyard means youre going to need a darn good excuse to miss it next year.

Step out with Blue Zones Project on National Walking Day Blue Zones ProjectSouthwest Florida celebrates National Walking Day Wednesday, April 5, with a 1-mile community walk. People across America are welcome to participate in the event sponsored by the American Heart Association. According to the AHA, Americans are spending more time sitting in front of a screen and are becoming less active, which can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases. To combat these health issues, Blue Zones Project, a community-led wellbeing improvement initiative, is partnering with the city of Naples, area schools, and organizations in Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero to encourage community members to walk for at least 30 minutes on April 5. The official walk begins promptly at 5:30 p.m. at the Cambier Park bandshell, 755 Eighth Ave. S. in downtown Naples. Since January, more than 400 individuals have committed to participate in regular walking groups, or Blue Zones Project moais (pronounced moweyes). Walking moais are small groups of people, many of whom dont know each other prior to joining, who walk together to stay active and build healthy social circles. Moai members in Naples will celebrate the culmination of their 10-week walking groups and join other community members in the 1-mile walk on National Walking Day. Our walking group has been meeting once a week, walking together for 30 minutes, and getting to know each other better, said Scott Burgess, CEO of David Lawrence Center. Weve had fun building stronger bonds among our employees, and we look forward to celebrating with the entire community on National Walking Day. The 1-mile walk on National Walking Day will step out from the bandshell and head north on Eighth Street to showcase the recent redevelopment of Central Avenue, a partner project between Blue Zones Project and the city of Naples. Completed last fall, the project improved the walkability and bikeability of this central corridor, adding wider sidewalks and a bike lane. Roundabouts also were added to improve traffic conditions and lower speeds for bicycle and pedestrian safety. The walk will finish at the Garden of Hope and Courage on the NCH Healthcare System downtown campus. Upon arrival, participants will enjoy hors doeuvres and wine, as a daily glass with friends is also linked to a longer, healthier life. Information on how to join a walking moai will be available. Participants will receive a Blue Zones Project T-shirt and are eligible to win a $1,000 prize. To RSVP for the community walk, visit Blue Zones National Walking Day at www.eventbrite.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 A29 Its All About FaceYours! FRIDAY, MARCH 31ST AT 11:30AM If we had to list our most popular non-surgical treatments here at Azul, CoolSculpting would be right at the top. Since it was introduced a few years ago, CoolSculpting has become the go-to procedure for body contouring. Over the years, innovations with the technology have brought us purposethat allow us to treat not only the areas around your waist and thighs but also under your chin. Before we go further, lets review how CoolSculpting works. Decades ago, researchers discovered that cold temperatures can damage fat cells without affecting the healthy tissue surrounding them. This knowledge was put into practical use a few years ago with the development of CoolSculpting. By using a special applicator, we can target stubborn fatty areas of the body with cold energy, destroying the fat cells. Over the course of a few weeks after treatment, your body will reabsorb these damaged fat cells, eliminating them forever. You will literally be able to watch the fat melt away. This semi-permanent form of weight loss/body sculpting has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. Its far less invasive than a surgical procedure such as liposuction and requires absolutely no recovery time. Its an incredible treatment that we cannot recommend enough. Now, CoolSculpting has announced CoolSculpting process: the CoolSculpt Advantage. The CoolSculpt Advantage is a plicator that makes CoolSculpting even better. Thanks to interchangeable contours, the same applicator can be used to treat your abdomen, the procedure far more comfortable, while allowing us to treat larger areas of tissue even faster. With the new applicator, the procedure time has been cut almost in half, taking only 35 minutes per treatment cycle (only 60 minutes for larger areas!) That isnt the only exciting recent news about CoolSculpting. Just a few weeks ago, it was announced that the CoolSculpting method has been approved by the FDA to treat upper arm fat. These areas of cellulite are through exercise or dieting. Now, with CoolSculpting, batwing ciently, and without great discomfort. culpting has announced that they will be releasing a brand-new applicator next year, the CoolAdvantage Petite. This applicator will optimize the CoolSculpting procedure for the upper arms. We cant wait to get our hands on one! As if CoolSculpting wasnt fantastic enough, we have something special to announce that will make it even better. Azul and Trilogy Laboratories are announcing our new line of Azul Signature Body products. Leading the way are the Azul Signature Body Sculpting Lotion and the Body Sculpting Oil. These products use advanced biotech ingredients to help reduce cellulite, improve your skin tone, and best of allaccelerate fat reduction. When combined with CoolSculpting, these two amazing body products can greatly reduce your recovery time, meaning that you will be seeing the fat melt away even faster. If you would like to hear more about CoolSculpting, or any cosmetic procedures that we offer here at Azul, please visit our website at www.azulat (239) 415-7576. If youve ever wondered about the possibilities of CoolSculpting and body contouring, this is the month to satisfy your curiosity! We hope to see you soon! 1009 Crosspointe Drive #1 Naples, FL 34110 (239) 415-7576 azulbeauty.com ADVERTORIAL le a s 35 60 t e w n e r g Dr. Patrick FlahartyIntroducing the CoolSculpt AdvantageNCH staff knows what it means to try a little kindnessSimple acts of kindness might seem trivial, but they can have a huge positive impact on those who are stressed or in need. Here are some recent examples that make the point. On a beautiful, balmy recent afternoon as I was returning from a speaking engagement, one of my colleagues beckoned me to the Garden of Hope and Courage. Once there, I saw a patient on a portable respirator and connected to an IV, in a hospital bed positioned to see the beautiful pond, the flowers in bloom and the birds flying by. It was a very unusual sight for sure. But all was under control, as the patient was accompanied by an ICU nurse, a respiratory therapist and a nursing student. The nurse told me the patient had been inside our ICU for almost 100 days. The patients wish was to get some fresh air, and our ICU team made that wish come true. On another recent afternoon, I made rounds on our North Naples campus when it was overflowing with patients. Acting Chief Nursing Officer (now CNO) Jon Kling and his team were in high gear moving patients along to make room in the ER. It was a stressful situation, but the staff was calm and on the case right down to Director of Food Services Mark Flood, who thoughtfully arranged for sandwiches to be delivered for the busy staff on all floors. As I went from floor to floor, I shared my calling card with families and patients and, when it was appropriate, I asked: Has everyone been nice to you? Can I help you in any way? Later that night I received the following two emails that inspired this column. I just wanted to let you know how much it meant to me when you asked about my loved one (mother) today in the elevator at NCH. My mother was brought into ER on Friday night with a broken hip. Her care has been outstanding, from the ER to the surgery to her room on the fifth floor. In all my years of hospital and doctor visits, your few words in the elevator today may be the highest level of professionalism I have experienced. While our encounter was brief, it made a lasting impression with me. Thanks again. And this: We met last night around 6 p.m. outside the ICU. You were kind enough to stop and speak with my mom. This June she and my dad will have been married for over five decades, and that longevity is in no small part due to the care he has received the past couple of years at NCH. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the care he has received and also for the kindness and compassion everyone has shown. As I am sure you know, you are fortunate to have many qualified and caring professionals in your stead. One never knows what a difference a kind word or act makes. But at NCH, we do know that kindness can help everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

MARTY BECKER AND MIKKEL BECKERAndrews McMeel SyndicationWe humans love our dogs, and theyve been our companions for thousands of years. But despite that age-old relationship, there are still things dogs do that make us scratch our heads and say, Hmm. Lets take a look at some of those behaviors to discover the secrets that lie behind them. Why do dogs eat grass? We get this one a lot. There are lots of theories about this behavior. One is that dogs who eat it are trying to overcome stomach upset by making themselves vomit. Another is that grass contains nutrients that perhaps are lacking in the dogs diet. We happen to think that dogs eat grass because they like it. Havent you ever chewed on a blade of grass on a hot summer day? For the most part, theres nothing wrong with dogs eating grass. Two possible drawbacks are that they ingest parasite eggs with their salad, or that they come inside and vomit it up on your favorite carpet. Why do dogs lick so much? Dogs love to lick us and themselves. Sometimes they lick fabrics such as carpet or upholstery. Our salty skin tastes delicious, and our aroma, especially if were sweaty, is a delight to a dogs nose. Dogs get attention when they lick us, whether its a giggle or a Yuck as they swipe a tongue across our face. Dogs dont care. They just like that were talking to them. Licking also brings dogs a physiological reward: the pituitary gland in the brain releases hormones called endorphins that relieve pain and generate good feelings. Licking can also be a sign of a health problem. Dogs who lick themselves excessively may be suffering from allergies that cause them to itch. When dogs lick their bowls frantically or turn their tongues to carpet or upholstery, its a good idea to take them to the veterinarian for a checkup. Studies have found that dogs who perform these behaviors may be diagnosed with some form of gastrointestinal disease. Why do dogs wag their tails? The tail wag is a classic canine greeting, but it can have many other meanings, depending on the tails position, speed and even the direction in which it wags. Here are just a few of the many possible interpretations of a wagging tail: A confident dog has his tail up. A dog who feels threatened typically holds his tail up but rigid, moving it rapidly back and forth. When the tail is relaxed and moving in a gentle sweeping motion, the dog is relaxed and welcoming. A dog with tail down is stressed or cautious. A fearful dog has his tail tucked. When dogs see their owners, as opposed to strangers or unfamiliar dogs, their tail wags most strongly toward the right. Why do dogs smile at us? A dogs smile can have several meanings. A common one is whats known as a submissive grin that expression a dog has when he wants to let you or another dog know that hes not a threat. A submissive grin can sometimes resemble a more aggressive smile, indicating that the dog may bite if approached. A subtle clue is that with an aggressive smile, the lips may be pulled back instead of up. Always assess the rest of the dogs body language especially that expressive tail before deciding whether its safe to move toward this dog. Our favorite canine smile is when the mouth is open and relaxed. Thats what you see when your dog is calm and happy. We love that dogs show so openly that they are glad to see us. Neat fact: Dogs and humans use the same muscles to form a smile. Pets of the Week>> Bonnie is a sweet and mellow, spayed mix who through no fault of her own nds herself in need of a new forever home.

Last week I waxed on and on (and on) about how I had just joined a gym. I was super pumped up about being bikini-ready (OK, more realistically, shorts-ready) by summer. I couldnt wait to show off my sleek guns in tank tops and go shopping for single digitsized skinny jeans. And then, I broke my ankle. I didnt sprain it or bruise it or twist it. No, I went ahead and broke it by accidentally overlooking a step in a doorway. And I cant even blame my shoes this time; they were innocent, loving Birkenstocks. I just missed my step. As a result, my lower leg, which was supposed to be doing increasing reps of squats and lunges this week, is encased in a slightly sparkly, blue fiberglass cast, and my dreams of crushing my cardio on the elliptical machine and developing buns of steel have been replaced with the hopes of making it from the bed to the bathroom unscathed on my scooter chair. Not only did I have grand plans to have a body Gwyneth Paltrow would envy, I had other goals this spring that involved a working ankle everything from organizing all of our closets to going to a Red Sox Spring Training game with my girlfriends. And now that my gym membership is on hold, Ive been metaphorically kicking myself for not joining sooner. Which had me wondering: Why do we put things off when we could do them today, before we break an ankle? If youve always wanted to paint a wall in your bedroom bright red, do it now. If youve been putting off that 20-mile bike ride on Sanibel or Marco, put your bicycle in your trunk and go pedaling immediately. You saw an ad for tap dance lessons? Dont just think about it, put on your dancing shoes. Maybe you think youll download the Couch to 5-K app. Well, right NOW would be a great time for that. Because everything, I believe, happens for a reason. And if being laid up on the couch with no visions of a 5K in my not-so-distant future has taught me a lesson, its to live in the moment and not to wait for the right time to make something happen. The time is now. Obviously, this experience has also taught me to pay more attention when walking through a doorway or rather, to watch my step. You should, too. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com COURTESY PHOTOAfter being fitted with a bright fiberglass cast, the Diva decided not to wait for that Easter basket-style pedicure she had been planning to get next month.

I believe for us to achieve the quality services we want our associates to deliver, we need to create an environment where they have opportunities for advancement, an environment where they are treated with respect and have leaders who will listen to and engage them.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPEN SUN. 1-4keting. And theres no greater marketing challenge than the maddening endeavor to communicate your message to another culture which is made exponentially more difficult when that includes translating it into a different language. For example, theres an old urban legend about Coca-Cola that the soft drink giant insisted on keeping the sound of its name when first marketing its signature products to China. To do this, the companys marketers arranged Chinese characters that, when pronounced, sounded something like Coca Cola only to discover the characters translated directly as Bite the wax tadpole. The story is bogus, but there are apparently other occasions where a mistranslation caused a company embarrassment or at least gave foreign consumers pause.Consider the languageWould you buy Pet milk if you lived in in France, where pet means to break wind? (Since the product is dairy, perhaps this wasnt all that inaccurate.) Rolls Royce opted to change the name of its Silver Mist model before introducing it in Germany, since mist means manure. Sunbeam wasnt so savvy with its German introduction of its Mist Stick curling iron only to discover no woman wanted to use a Manure Wand on her hair. As bad as that sounds, Coors beer had it worse. Its Turn it loose sounds pretty cool in American English. But in Spain, it equated to Suffer from diarrhea not exactly a selling point unless youre in the market for an alcoholic substitute for Ex-Lax. KFC is the No. 1 fast-food chain in China. But when it first opened its franchises there, it was discovered that the classic tagline Finger-lickin good became the rather unappealing Eat your fingers off. Pepsi had its own mishap in China. The promise that Pepsi brings you back to life had been mistranslated, creating a somewhat different connotation there Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave. If youre Italian, youd probably be less likely to try Schweppes tonic water, since tonic translates as toilet. Not exactly the kind of underground spring Id be looking for. Ford has had some particularly bad luck with translations. Every car has a high-quality body sounds like a solidly appealing promise to Americans. But in Belgium, that phrase was understood as Every car has a high-quality corpse. I can only imagine what those Belgians thought a fully loaded Ford came with. Things did not fare any better for the automaker in Brazil, where it turned out Pinto is slang for tiny male genitals. American Motors didnt have much luck with Spanish, either, where its benign-sounding Matador model meant The Killer in Puerto Rico. The long-defunct Braniff International Airways once tried to tout its new leather seats to Latin America with a translation of its tagline Fly in leather. Unfortunately, in Mexico, that meant, Fly naked. Compared to some other translations, thats downright clean.Dirty words Its nice to know that Parker pens, wont leak in your pocket and embarrass you. But Parker was embarrassed to find out that sentence meant something somewhat different in Mexico: It wont leak in your pocket and make you pregnant. Good gracious where has that pen been? Even a corporate titan such as McDonalds is not immune to translation errors. By calling its Big Mac a Gros Mec in France, it was actually calling it a Big Pimp. What IS in that special sauce, anyway? French at least as spoken in Canada seems to pose particular problems for marketers. Hunt-Wesson translated the name of its Big John product line as literally as it could Gros Jos, which happens to be a slang term in Quebec for big breasts. Then theres the Buick LaCrosse sedan, which was too close for comfort to a Quebeois term for masturbation. (Could this be why lacrosse is considered the national sport of Canada, but you rarely see Canadians playing it?) I dont imagine the American Dairy Associations Got Milk? campaign fared well in Mexico, where the phrase translated to Are you lactating? Puffs tissues learned the hard way that its company name is a common term for whorehouse in Germany. Vicks (as in Vapo-Rub) had similar difficulties there, too. The V is pronounced as an F in German. That seems innocuous until you realize Ficks sounds a lot like the English equivalent for sexual intercourse. Yep, the notorious F-bomb. Then theres my personal favorite. The late Frank Perdue taught us all that It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken. But in Mexico again (what on earth do they do down there?) that tagline can mean It takes a hard man to make a chicken aroused, It takes a virile man to make a chicken pregnant or It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate. None of those options would sit well with the ASPCA. Sometimes communication gaffes are not about what you say. Take Gerber, for instance, which started selling its baby-related products in Africa using its signature infant logo on the label. To the companys horror, it discovered that, because so many people on that continent cannot read, companies generally put a picture on the packaging of whats actually inside the box or jar thereby giving many Africans a whole new understanding of the term baby food.Break audience barriers While these examples may have given you at least a chuckle, they underscore a deadly serious marketing lesson: You need to speak the same language as your intended audience. Your marketing must address THEIR hopes, needs, desires, fears, concerns not YOURS (which is too often the case). When you dont, it creates a language barrier even in English because your message has little or no meaning for the potential customer. Youre communicating, Hey, look at us! Were a great company! We make sales! We win awards! And my response to that is, I dont care. Whats in it for ME? As a customer, ME (not YOU) is who I find most interesting and your concern about solving MY problems or meeting MY needs is what ultimately convinces me to try your product or service.

Two Fed moves in three months. A new president and his policies. A resurging U.S. economy. Turmoil in Europe. One would think that bond prices would be bouncing all over the place. Instead, looking at a three-month history of the 10-year Treasury, you would think you were looking at the pulse of a dead man. So why has the Treasury market been so stable? And will that carry on?Like any other security, the Treasury market is governed by supply and demand. And there are two powerful forces controlling the demand for these bonds. The first is the anticipation of higher inflation, economic growth, and future Fed actions. Most analysts believe that the Fed will increase rates two additional times in 2017 and then another three times in 2018. Generally, when the Fed is in rate-hike mode, long-term rates follow short-term rates in heading higher as well.While inflation is still relatively tame, there are signs that overall prices are rising. Energy prices have increased off their lows of last year. Wages are also slowly but steadily rising. And government spending in infrastructure and defense is anticipated to push inflation even higher. General economic growth is also supportive of bond yields heading higher. Employment is strong. Consumers and spending on big-ticket items like cars and travel. And the new Republican government is anticipated to boost the economy in the short term with tax cuts and deregulation. Opposing this force, which is putting pressure on bond prices, is the flight to safety. U.S. Treasury Bonds are globally thought of as the safest place to park money when security is paramount. And there are many reasons why people around the world have reason to desire this protection today. First, there is the uncertainty around Brexit. While many have forgotten about this, numerous investors are worried that as this process unfolds later this year, there may be significant disruptions in the markets. Second, the upcoming elections in France have many anxious. A populist or right-wing victory may also cause an upheaval in the global markets. And finally, the uncertainty around the new Trump administration also has traders putting money in the safety of Treasury Bonds. Will the president be able to make good on his campaign promises, or will gridlock derail his plans? Now, these two opposing forces are relatively balanced, which is why the Treasury market has so little volatility. Geopolitical events do have the chance to push the market out of equilibrium but odds are in the near term the market will be a boring place. But if I were a bond investor today, I would keep a very close eye on my investment. Like a tightrope walker perfectly balanced on a wire, it would take very little to push this market into a free fall. Maybe we will see Janet Yellen resign and be replaced by a new chairperson who wants to reduce the size of the Feds balance sheet by selling its massive bond holdings. Or maybe the U.S. economy is stronger than we thought and inflation will start to increase more than anticipated. While any of these events are unlikely, any seasoned bond investor knows that bonds are the most boring of investments, until they are not. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com year for Marcos Marriott. On Jan. 1, the resort officially shed its former designation as the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club and Spa and ascended to the more upscale JW Marriott brand. The conversion, which makes it Marriotts first beachfront resort in the continental U.S., was the result of a $320 million renovation and expansion project that began in mid-2015. Among the features guests will be able to enjoy when work is completed in October are: 810 enhanced and expanded guestrooms and suites spread across three towers, up from 726 rooms in two towers. 100,000 square feet of meeting and event space, up from 57,000 square feet. An all-new adult-exclusive tower with 94 guest rooms and suites, a rooftop restaurant, pool and 12,000-squarefoot indoor entertainment zone. A new beachfront tiki bar. Re-imagined restaurants. Upgraded facilities at both golf courses and clubhouses. The JW Marriott designation represents a boon for the resort, Mr. Medwedeff said. Its a luxury tier, so it broadens our guest targeting to those who are more affluent and looking for the enriched experiences this resort is able to deliver, he added. These are world travelers who have a passion for culture, culinary experiences and well-being Helping our guests relax and rejuvenate and explore an ecosystem that is truly unique are what we have to offer. He said the conversion should also benefit Marcos businesses by introducing the island to well-heeled visitors who might decide to purchase a second home or become permanent residents. Planning for the project began eight years ago and involved working closely with the Marriott corporation as well as with the municipality and residents of Marco Island. Its very rewarding to take something of this magnitude and be part of the strategic planning, said Mr. Medwedeff. Marriott has been his sole employer since 1982, when he graduated from the University of Maryland with a bachelors degree in accounting and a minor in psychology. I had quite a few job offers coming out of college, and what intrigued me about Marriott at the time was I enjoyed traveling and there was an opportunity to work at Marriott hotels all around the United States, he said. In his 35 years with the company, Mr. Medwedeff has moved nine times. He worked in financial roles in Virginia, Alabama, Palm Springs and Washington, D.C., until 1998, when he became general manager of the Tampa Airport Marriott. Prior to entering college, Mr. Medwedeff served in the U.S. Army for three years. Interview with Rick MedwedeffBusiness mentor: Bud Davis (retired), who was the area vice president of Florida and general manager of the Marco Island Marriott in the 1990s. First job: In high school I worked at a Dutch Pantry as a short-order cook. My first professional job was as an assistant controller for Marriott Business words of wisdom: Take care of your associates and they will take care of your business. Most recent business book: You Cant Lead with Your Feet on the Desk by Ed Fuller. Two things you look for when hiring: The most critical attributes for success in the hospitality business are to be genuinely friendly and caring neither of which we can teach. Last time you had to fire someone and the reason: Last year, for excessive absenteeism. Any job openings? Yes. Go online to www.marriott.com/careers and select Marco Island.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to 1965, when a Connecticut teenager started a sandwich business in order to put himself through medical school. Borrowing $1,000 from a family friend, he opened Petes Super Submarines and sold 312 sandwiches in the first day, for less than 70 cents apiece. I got my current name in 1968. Today I boast more than 44,000 locations in more than 110 countries, all of them franchised. (Thats many more locations than McDonalds has.) I serve about 7.5 million sandwiches each day. You cant buy stock in me because Im privately held. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Paying for UnderperformanceTo justify the stratospheric salaries that many CEOs receive, some will explain that you have to pay for performance, and that top talent doesnt come cheap. Indeed, a 2016 survey by the Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford University found that 95 percent of CEOs and 87 percent of company directors believe that CEO compensation is aligned with performance. But according to a recent study of 429 large American companies by the investment research firm MSCI, Companies that awarded their Chief Executive Officers higher pay incentive levels had belowmedian returns. The study reviewed the years from 2005 to 2015 and found total shareholder returns of those companies whose total summary pay was below their sector median outperformed those companies where pay exceeded the sector median by as much as 39 percent. In other words, if youd invested $100 in companies with the highest-paid CEOs, it would have grown to $265 over those 10 years but it would have grown to $367 invested in the companies with the lowestpaid CEOs. Thats not lost on the American public. According to a different Rock Center survey, 74 percent of respondents saw CEOs having incorrect pay levels though they underestimated how much CEOs averaged in pay. Also, when asked how much more than a companys average worker wage its CEO should earn, respondents answers averaged 17.6 times. In reality, according to several reports, the average CEO compensation among S&P 500 companies was more than 275 times that of the average worker in 2015. Its not a baseless argument to claim that CEOs guiding their companies to great growth are worth hefty compensation. The problem is that many CEOs simply get lavish pay packages without performing well. Fortunately, we shareholders can use our proxy ballots to vote against companies CEO pay policies, and also to withhold votes from the compensation committees directors who craft outrageous pay packages and pen employment agreements that ensure ample pay for failure through golden parachutes. CEO pay disconnected from performance (or reason) doesnt have to be business as usual. A Grounded IconMy dumbest investment was in the stock of Pan Am airlines. I bought 200 shares at about $4 apiece back in the 1980s. The company was iconic. I figured it couldnt go under and its shares would eventually go up again. Well, while monitoring it a bit, I noticed that the company was selling their hubs (central locations) at airports. I told my wife we should probably sell, but then I didnt. I just believed it had to come back. Wrong. I lost it all. The moral of this story: If you see a company selling its assets when its in the tank, save some of your assets and sell. Icons can go belly-up. Look at Sears, Kmart, etc. R.H., Casselberry, FloridaThe Fool Responds: Its hard to imagine icons going out of business, but many have. Sears, which owns Kmart now, is still operating, but its struggling. Its closing scores of stores and downsizing its staff. Other iconic companies that went out of business or are no longer what they used to be include Kodak, Woolworth, Blockbuster, Readers Digest and Lehman Brothers. Pan Am was in business for more than 60 years beginning in 1927 and entering bankruptcy in 1991. It suffered great losses in the 1980s that ultimately grounded it. When investing, its critical to consider risks and challenges facing companies, no matter how excited you may be about their potential. More Than SneakersShares of global footwear and apparel giant Nike (NYSE: NKE) were recently down about 13 percent from their 52-week highs. That spells opportunity more than trouble.Nike has been facing a weak retail environment in the U.S., while growth in China has slowed. (Nike already gets more than half of its sales from outside North America.) As Nike is counting on its expansion in China to be a major growth driver, some investors are concerned. Those are temporary challenges, though. More lasting are strengths such as consumer brand loyalty, which can make it easier to acquire new customers and can lead to high-margin repeat customers for life.Meanwhile, Nike is courting new customers in new ways. Its investing heavily in its direct-to-consumer platform in an effort to improve the shopping experience for consumers, as well as reach Generation Z and millennials, who are its future and core customers.Nike is also aiming to get to $50 billion in total revenue by 2020 in part by doubling womens apparel revenue from $5.5 billion in 2015 to $11 billion. (The companys annual revenue was recently around $33 billion.) Its partnerships in digital wearable technologies may strike a chord with female consumers, too. With a slightly depressed stock and a dividend yielding 1.3 percent, Nike is a promising long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Nike.) I trace my roots back to a broken typewriter ribbon in 1985 that caused my founder to envision a supermarket for office products. I opened my first store in Brighton, Massachusetts, in 1986 and by 2002 was the worlds largest seller of office supplies. I debuted the Easy Button in 2005. I have more than a thousand stores in the U.S. and Canada and more than 200 in Europe. My market value was recently near $6 billion. The Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks play in a center that bears my name though its about 3,000 miles from my headquarters. Who am I? (Answer: Staples) Insurance RisingQIs it my imagination, or are car insurance rates rising, even as my car gets older? Why would that happen? F.R., Jackson, MichiganAIts not your imagination, and a bunch of factors are responsible. The bottom line is that insurers have been facing rising costs in the form of more claims than they expected. Accidents (sometimes fatal ones) due to texting while driving are one problem, along with the general distraction of smartphones. Some blame more widespread use of marijuana, as well. An improving economy and lower fuel costs have led to more driving, which also increases the number of accidents. Meanwhile, health care costs have been rising, leading to more expensive claims. But wait theres more! Its even getting more expensive to fix cars, as they have a lot more technology in them think, for example, of backup cameras placed in bumpers. Is there any hope? Well, red-light cameras have been reducing the number of accidents. Self-driving cars may reduce accidents further and could lead to lower premiums. And online services can help drivers zero in on affordable policies. ***QWhat happens to the value of a stock when the company buys back its own shares? Does it change the number of outstanding shares? B.C., via emailAThats exactly what happens. The number of shares outstanding shrinks, boosting the value of remaining shares. Each share will have a greater proportional claim on the companys value. As a simplified example, imagine a company that once had its value divided among 100 shares now dividing it among just 80 shares. Each share will have more value. Companies buying back shares serve shareholders well unless the shares they buy are overpriced. Want more information about stocks?

Myers, Naples & Marco Island The Useppa Island Butterfly Society began several years ago, when the island donated a sandy and unbuildable 1/3 acre to the care of volunteer islanders for a butterfly sanctuary. Six years later, we see significantly more and varied butterflies fluttering in the warm sun. We find eggs the size of pencil points, as well as understand why leaves disappear overnight as caterpillars munch through them. These are all signs that the butterflies approve of our efforts! Butterflies alight on almost any flower for nectar. However, each butterfly species selects a very specific host plant for laying its eggs, and can detect them from as far as five miles away. This is the same plant these butterflies-turnedcaterpillars will use for food. So, what began as simply planting pretty flowers, has turned into spread sheets to cross reference nectar versus host plants, in the correct proportion, to successfully attract less migratory butterflies, while attracting more that will happily reside with us for generations. Of the many butterflies, we have our favorites. Black and yellow Swallowtails search out Dutchmans Pipevine (which can grow over a foot a day) as visiting butterflies lay clusters of yellow eggs. When hatched, these larva/caterpillars quickly devour the vines dense foliage that has hidden them so well. Orange Gulf Fritillarys tiny tan eggs are found on the underside of Lady Margaret Passion Vine. The hatched orange caterpillars then travel in packs, voraciously eating the vine before curling up into a chrysalis from which a beautiful butterfly will emerge. The most rewarding aspect of caring for the garden is sharing it with visitors of all ages. The Butterfly Garden encapsulates what life on Useppa is about. Creating a place of beauty, wonder, refuge and learning, while relaxing and sharing a space with family, friends and those who wander the island. All are welcome here!

Company founder and Artistic Director Kristen Coury directs the production. One of the Bards most exacting and divisive works, The Merchant of Venice centers on Portia, the wealthy heiress of Belmont, who has set her suitors to a high stakes challenge. The champion will win her hand in marriage. In order to compete in the challenge, Bassanio, a down-and-out noble who very much desires to marry Portia, requires a loan from his dear friend, Antonio, a wealthy but presently cash-poor merchant. Bassanio and Antonio go to Shylock, a jaded Jewish moneylender who has long been a victim of anti-Semitism, who agrees to grant this loan with one caveat: Should Antonio fail to repay his debt with money, he will instead pay it with a pound of flesh. Love, intolerance, humor and mercy are brilliantly woven together in The Merchant of Venice, which has been uniquely adapted by Gulfshore Playhouse into an intimate, nine-person production. The cast includes: Larry Paulsen as Shylock Mr. Paulsen first performed with Gulfshore Playhouse last season as Aslaksen in An Enemy of The People. His acting credits include numerous Shakespeare roles at theaters and festivals such as Shakespeare Theatre in WashBY CYNTHIA MOTTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Fair!

Putnam. 352 pages. Hardcover, $27. Though many of Randy Wayne Whites earlier entries in his Doc Ford mystery series have generated fear, not one has been as persistently scary as Mangrove Lightning. An odd brew of local history, unnatural quirks in the natural world, grotesque legends and even more grotesque characters, its fed by events on different timelines that come into focus and then dissolve. Much of the plot revolves around the past and present doings of two families: the Lambeths and the Barlows. The Lambeths are a mysterious and evil-tainted tribe given to all kinds of perversions and crimes. Members of this weird family are huge physical specimens who enjoy cruel satisfactions and a wide range of narcotics. Those who stumble into Lambeth country in the backwaters of Southwest Florida might not get out. The clans human prey often disappears, perhaps boiled down to bones and chemicals. Doc Ford and his buddy Tomlinson find themselves among those who have to deal with the present generation of Lambeths, in whom cunning and madness coexist. The Barlows are represented by a premier and legendary fishing captain nicknamed Tootsie. Although theres plenty of bad news in the family, Tootsie is revered. When his rebellious teenage niece, Gracie, goes missing, Tomlinson and Doc are involved in trying to find and, if necessary, rescue her. Indeed, Gracie is only the latest member of Tootsies family to have been sought out to pay the price for some terrible doings that occurred in the mid1920s. It seems as if a dark family feud is being played out. Wrapped around these concerns is a frame story that involves an attractive woman who is a member of a minor British royal family. Doc stumbles into her life while pursuing another matter on the Caribbean island of Nassau. As it happens, Ms. Cobourgs problems, a mixture of embarrassment and extortion, take a distant back seat through most of the novel. Filled with sadistic violence and eerie atmospherics, the very qualities that might send one seeking for lighter reading fare, Mangrove Lightning remains hypnotic. Mr. White sets traps for his enemies and for his readers as well. The plot lines are a series of baited hooks on which we cant help but bite. The pulse of the action and tightening noose of suspense steadily intensify. The resilient and courageous Gracie is one ingredient that keeps this novel so fascinating. Another is the reintroduction of Docs former girlfriend (and title character of her own series), the estimable Hannah Smith. Hannah, who becomes part of the team effort to protect Gracie, ends up putting her own life in jeopardy. How will she and Doc come together again if she doesnt survive? The extended involvement of zany Zen-master Tomlinson and the exhibitions of Docs combat and spy tradecraft are expected ingredients that are once again deeply satisfying. Few genre authors writing today provide the multi-textured sense of place that Mr. White so consistently conjures up. He knows well the flora and fauna, the half-tamed corners of his beloved Southwest Florida. He handles the play of light and darkness on both the visual and spiritual levels. He knows how to entrance us with the inner and the outer weather. Nobody does it better. WHITE Randy Wayne White book signings 2 p.m. Saturday, March 25: Sunshine Booksellers, 677 S.

Argentinean baritone Gustavo Feulien is Sharpless, the American consulate. These Shining Lives sheds light on the Radium Girls of the 1920s SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Players present Melanie Marnichs historical drama, These Shining Lives, through April 15 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. Set in the 1920s at the Radium Dial factory 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 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 sharptongued 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.

CONTRACT BRIDGEA self-inflicted injury BY STEVE BECKERIn this deal from a club duplicate, only one North-South pair made four spades even though the contract was unstoppable with correct play. At most tables, the bidding went as shown, and West led the jack of clubs. Declarer put up dummys king in order to try a spade finesse, losing the eight to Wests queen. A second club was taken by the ace, and the king of spades then lost to Easts ace. East returned a third club, ruffed by South with the nine. At this point, virtually all the declarers drew Wests last trump with the jack and attempted to run the diamonds. But when East showed out on the second diamond, the contract went down the drain. Although South could ruff a fourth round of diamonds in dummy, he would have no entry to the closed hand to collect his last two diamonds. So, after cashing the A-K-Q of diamonds, these declarers next led a heart toward dummy and finished down one, losing two hearts and two spades. At one table, though, South saw a way to give himself an extra chance if the diamonds broke 4-1. After ruffing the club return at trick five, he reasoned that if the diamonds were divided 3-2, no harm could come from cashing the A-K before drawing the last trump. If both opponents followed suit to the A-K, he could then cash the jack of spades before running the diamonds. If the second diamond happened to get ruffed, the contract was doomed anyway. The advantage of this approach can be seen in the actual deal. When declarer cashed the two top diamonds, East showed out, but was unable to ruff. South then led a low diamond and ruffed it in dummy to establish the suit. Dummys remaining trump was led to the jack, and the rest of the diamonds were run. West got his heart trick at the end, and South got a well-deserved top score.

There are some nice themes and performances, but the ending, ironically, leaves a bit to be desired. Rated PG-13. Kong: Skull Island (Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson) In 1973, a group of explorers encounter a giant ape and other creatures on a remote island in the South Pacific. The action and effects are impressive, but the story takes a turn for the worse in its second half. If you go, see it in IMAX 3D, as the visuals are tremendous. Rated PG-13.Before 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 15year-old son (Mr. Zumann) become a man. Ms. Bening leads the stellar ensemble in this wonderful coming of age story that sublimely captures the travails of adolescence and the spirit of the 0s. Dont miss it! Rated R.

YesThe cartoon is better. Thats what youre wondering, right? The new Beauty and the Beast is a live action remake of Disneys (arguably) greatest musical, so the comparisons are certainly fair. The 1991 Beast is, with due respect to The Little Mermaid (1989), the film that reignited the brilliance of Disney animation, and it was the first animated film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. So to remake it, as Dreamgirls director Bill Condon has done, is to travel in sacred territory. And you know what? The cartoon is better. To be sure, its not for lack of trying. The production design, costumes and visual effects are stunning, so no expense was spared in getting this $160 million production to the big screen. If anything, it feels like too much: The songs (and lyrics) that are added, Belles backstory, a new character and other embellishments all feel like excess. The original is so embedded in our minds that to mess with perfection seems, well, beastly. The filmmakers will no doubt say this is Beauty and the Beast for a new generation. They might be right. People of 2017 crave more flash, distractions and immediate satisfaction than people did in 1991, so in a way its fitting that this Beast remake is so exuberant. Still, did no one at Disney question the necessity of bloating an 84-minute classic to 129 minutes? You know its different from the start. The prologue is interrupted to show the Prince/Beast (Dan Stevens) at a party surrounded by women as Madame Garderobe (Audra McDonald) sings. This is a bold move, and all we can think is: Why would Condon interrupt a perfect way to start the movie with this superfluous backstory? Shortly thereafter we meet Belle (Emma Watson), a bookworm in a small French village whose father (Kevin Kline) is the towns kooky inventor. She dreams of having something more to her provincial life if for no other reason to get away from the brutish Gaston (Luke Evans) and his stooge Le Fou (Josh Gad) and she unexpectedly gets it. Soon Belle is held captive in a remote castle by a Beast and his talking furniture. Thankfully for her, candelabra Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), clock Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), teapot Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson) and her son Chip (Nathan Mack) are perfectly nice. But if the Beast doesnt find true love before the last petal on his rose falls, everyone who lives in the castle will be doomed to his or her new form forever. Every song, except one, is better in the animated version. Thats not to say theyre done poorly, its just that youll notice the small differences, such as the added verse in Be Our Guest, and wonder why they added it. That said, the performances and voice work are strong, particularly Mr. Gad as Le Fou, who gives us a better version of Gaston than the animated film provides. Ms. Watson sings sweetly, endearing us from the start with Belle and easily getting us to like our heroine. Ms. Thompsons rendition of the title song is nice but not memorable. Beauty and the Beast is good enough to satisfy our natural curiosity in wanting to see it, but its clearly inferior to its predecessor. Ironically, it does itself a disservice by trying too hard and adding too much. Sometimes leaving well enough alone really is the best way to go. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The ballroom in this rendition of Beauty and the Beast has 12,000 square feet of faux marble and 10 glass chandeliers.

C18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe Collier County Fair last week, he laughed an emphatic, No, thanks! and proceeded to share this story: Back in the late s ... one freezing cold night I took a girl to the fair. The midway was almost deserted when she decided she wanted to go on the Ferris wheel. The operator fastened the bar across the front of us and put that thing in gear and we were the only two people on it. At first it was all right, but then the operator walked off down the midway to a concession stand to talk to some woman. We were abandoned and going round and round with no operator to let us off. Wed been on the wheel for a while when the girl said the immortal words, Im SICK! Sure enough, when the wheel went over the top and we began the drop, she threw up. Still no operator, but every time the wheel went over the top, she got sick again. I began hollering to get someones attention. It took a while, but finally the operator strolled back and brought us to a stop. That, my friend Billy told me, was his last ride on a Ferris wheel. Ever. But back to this years Collier County Fair. It has a Ferris wheel, of course, plus a variety of extreme rides that make the big wheel look as tame as a rubber duck bobbing around a kiddy pool. Theres the Freak Out, an oil rig-looking contraption that swings riders every unnatural way imaginable. And the Wild Claw, a giant boom with a claw on one end that spins riders as it hurtles them skyward and then groundward. Im too seasick-prone to even watch those for more than half a minute. The most noticeable from a distance (and up close) is called Speed. Just Speed. Its a 40-yard-long arm, nearly half the length of a football field, attached in the middle to an upright support. At both ends of the arm are seats where thrill-seekers are rotated at 13 revolutions per minute, which induces 3.5 g-forces of acceleration on riders. It looks like a giant catapult and slings so fast I couldnt help but think if a seat pod came unattached, it would fling the rider all the way to Ave Maria. Theres plenty of tame fun to be had at the Collier County Fair, too: a beautiful painted carousel, a not-too-spooky haunted house and a lifelike mechanical bull with a carnival hawker shouting, Two hundred dollars if you can stay on a full 8 seconds. Two hundred dollars! It tempted us not in the least, but maybe you? If youre not a bull person, there are cats. A whole streak of massively huge tigers perform an act with handlers inside a cage that looks way too meager for such majestic animals. (A streak is a group of tigers, in case like me you didnt know.) A giant tent across from the tigers emblazoned World of Wonders tantalizes human curious oddities with the added bonus, ALIVE! There you can see the Human Blockhead, Mondo Bizarro, Spidora and the almost tame sounding, Weird Women (yes, more than one). Being able to gawk at the giant circus art alone is worth the price of admission to the World of Wonders. Or you can just stroll a few dozen feet away and see a real live mermaid swimming in a big tank. We wondered if she escaped from World of Wonders. Of course, no fair is complete without the vein-clogging, drool-inducing, sensory ka-BOOM of fair food. Collier Countys fair is no exception, offering a giddy variety of everything from turkey drumsticks as big as a small dog, to bacon corn dogs and giant deep-fried slabs of pork skin. Where else can you get ice-cream funnel cakes, deep-fried Oreos, fried Snicker bars, sweet rolls and pretzels as big as a car tire? Yes, the annual Collier County Fair serves up a wonderful buffet of magical madness, but it also has a homier, more local, agricultural flank. Cows, chickens, turkeys, goats and all manner of animals raised in Collier County 4-H groups are also on display in the exhibition buildings, along with their attentive young owners cleaning, FAIRFrom page 1 Collier County FairHere are some highlights of whats coming up during the last few days of the 2017 Collier County Fair.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C19grooming and feeding their charges. By thoughtful design, the agricultural buildings are near the entrance, so if rides, games, carnies and a World of Wonder are not your taste, you can enjoy the more organic, homegrown exhibits without having to navigate the other. It might come as a surprise to some that the Collier County Fair organization is not a part of county or state government and receives no tax dollars or other subsidies. The group is a private, not-for-profit band of dedicated local residents committed to promoting community education, youth achievement and Southwest Florida agriculture. One main focus is providing support and exposure for 4-H youth clubs. Collier Countys 4-H is a learn-bydoing program for kids ages 5-18. Volunteer-driven, 4-H clubs cover a wide variety of interests but all share a common goal: to foster knowledge, attitudes and skills young people need to become caring, competent citizens. Collier Countys 4-H is a part of the Florida Extension Service, which is a part of the University of Florida. In the agricultural buildings, you will see the beautiful fruits of much young labor. There are chickens of many breeds, including a large display of newborn chick hatchlings I wanted to bring all of them home. There are ducks, geese and turkeys strutting like most never get to see, as well as cows, goats, pigs and other critters too many to count. Livestock auctions are a traditional and important part of Florida county fair history. A young person spends many months tending, nurturing and caring for their chosen animal, all in preparation for judging and sale by auction at their local fair. Profits often plump up college funds, providing the potential for lifelong benefits far exceeding the raising experience. Last year in Hardee County, a few counties north of Collier, an 11-year-old 4-H boy named Heath Hendry had a rough year. His single mother, a Zolfo Springs Elementary School teacher, died suddenly of a heart attack. That year at the fair, when Heaths hog came up for auction, it sold in less than two minutes to an anonymous buyer for a whopping $170 per pound. Total cost for the nearly 300-pound animal topped $47,000. As you might imagine, there wasnt a dry eye in the house. Local fairs can matter very much to local people. The first Collier County Fair was held in January 1977. All the neighboring counties had their own fairs, and the folks in Collier wanted one for their community, too. They struggled together to make their dream a reality, and on opening day the Naples Daily News quoted County Commissioner Russ Wimer as he waited for the gates to open: I feel like an expectant father. Theres not a darn thing I can do now but worry. This years fair is Collier Countys 41st and by all appearances is going stronger than ever. More than 60,000 people visited last year, and attendance this year promises to be even bigger as the fun lights up the dark in central Collier County for a few more shining nights. Get out there! You never know, there might be some deserving youth in need of you buying a $50,000 pig. If Hardee can do it, Collier can too. Cynthia Mott is a Southwest Florida native and freelance writer. Her first fair memory is of hanging over the front car seat with her two younger sisters, straining to see the lights of the rides as their Daddy struggled to find a parking spot. He always threatened to go home if the girls didnt quit breathing down his neck. They never did, and neither did he. Email Cynthia at cmmott2@ gmail.com. Always take your sweet tooth with you when you head to the fair. World of Wonders beckons with ALIVE! sights the likes youve never seen before.

If so, the companys two junior movie houses (opening this very week in San Diego and Los Angeles) may bring a new dimension to family entertainment. Another view, though, is that the noise (often screaming), plus the overhead lighting required for parents to monitor their tykes equipment-usage, plus the planned $3-per-ticket surcharge, will soon create (according to the Guardian critic) a moviegoing apocalypse.Cant possibly be trueThe U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in January granted IBMs 2010 application for a patent on out-of-office email message software (even though such messages have, of course, been ubiquitous for two decades) after the company finally convinced examiners that its patent had enough software tweaks on it to qualify. (Critics, such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, laughed at the uselessness of the tweaksNews of the pretentious Why live with a cat if one cannot take it out for some wine together? The Apollo Peak in Denver and the PetWinery in Fort Myers serve a variety of the real grape to humans and nonalcoholic proprietary drinks for the kitties to enjoy tableside (or underneath). Pinot Meow ($12) in Denver and Meow and Chandon ($15) in Fort Myers, are specialties basically watered catnip, according to a February New York Times report (so the felines can also get buzzed). The wine outing is the humans preference, of course, with a loftier cachet than the happy hour most cats might prefer (say, a sardine bar). I tried the $5,000 hamburger, and it was absolutely worth it, wrote the apparently straight-faced CNBC reviewer Robert Frank in February, describing his meal at the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay restaurant Fleur. (The burger included Waygu beef, foie gras and truffles, and was served with a similarly inexplicably priced wine.) Other recent consumer challenges: an $18 cup of coffee at Brooklyns Extraction Lab; a $100 bottle of Norwegian iceberg water (Svalbardi. com); a $2,000 pizza at New York Citys Industry Kitchen (caviar, truffles, gold flakes); and a $25,000 taco at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Mexico (caviar, brie, Kobe beef, langoustine lobster, rare tequila and once again with the gold flakes).Government in action Illinois has problems: a $130 billion unfunded pension crisis, 19 months without a budget, the lowest credit rating and highest property taxes in the country, and the murder rate in Chicago. However, at least the state house of representatives is not standing by idly. In February, it moved to designate October 2017 as Zombie Preparedness Month (basically, adding zombie invasion to the list of mobilizations for any natural disaster and urging residents to stockpile food and supplies for up to 72 hours). Lawyers for former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. have convinced federal officials that his bipolar disorder was caused by the stress of being a congressman and thus that he is entitled to total disability worker compensation for an on-the-job injury and thus to about $100,000 a year, tax-free, according to a February Chicago Tribune report. (Jackson, 51, also receives Social Security disability payments.) Lawyers said his disorder (often attributed to genetic factors) surfaced during an investigation into Jacksons looting of his campaign treasury for luxury goods and vacations (charges eventually settled with a guilty plea). Jackson dated his onset to June 2012, meaning that his last 72 House votes came while totally disabled.

How is she doing, and will she be taking a break from acting? Janet Y., via emailA: The Party of Five and Mean Girls alumn did indeed just become a new mom. She and husband David Nehdar welcomed Julia Mimi Bella in September. However, earlier this year, Lacey was back at work filming the Hallmark Channels Moonlight in Vermont with 4-month-old Julia in tow. Regarding the movie, which premieres April 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark, Lacey said she could relate to the busy, career-driven woman that she played: Ive been working since I was 7 years old. I am very driven and very ambitious, but especially since having a baby. The baby has really taught me to take a step back, slow down a little bit sometimes, and really just enjoy the moment. Its great to be ambitious and its great to be driven, but I think there needs to be a happy balance. If youre constantly on the go and dont ever sit back and enjoy whats happening, then whats it all worth? Q: I am addicted to Tom Hardys new series Taboo. Please tell me there will be another season. Nick B., Port St. LucieA: Tom Hardy himself has confirmed that there will be an explosive new season of Taboo, which just completed its run on FX. Season two will pick up with Delaney (played by Tom) and his ragtag group of criminals as they head over to America. For those of you who havent had the chance to watch it, you can stream it for free through your cable provider or you can purchase individual episodes or the entire season to stream from Amazon. Q: Will there be more episodes of Making a Murder? Mike R., via emailA: A Netflix representative has confirmed that series creators Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi are currently in Wisconsins Manitowac County filming for the second season.

Clocks from the 1800s bring high-dollar bids from time to time BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELAn unusual wall clock was offered at a recent auction. It was labeled Friesland wall clock with automata, 1800. Friesland is a section of Holland where people have been making clocks since the 1600s. Automata, of course, are the moving figures in this case, boats that are included below the clock dial for decoration and amusement. There was a moving scene with a woman milking a cow, a fisherman with a fish and three ships with sails. The clock also struck at an hour and half-hour. The clock case has windows that show the moving pendulum. Add to that the decoration of the case and dial, painted-iron Roman numerals, pierced brass hands and mahogany marquetry trim on the wooden case and hood. It had many characteristics of an early 1800s Dutch clock. It was the oldest and the most expensive of many Friesland wall clocks in the sale. Bidders also were sure it was an early clock and the winning bid was $3,444. Q: Id like to get some information and the value of a childs coffee or tea service with a teapot and lid, six cups and saucers, a creamer and sugar bowl with lid. The pictures on the pieces are of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. The mark on the bottom of the pot is a crown and the words Creidlitz Made in Germany, with Bavaria written above the crown. A: Porcelain Factory Creidlitz was in business in Creidlitz, Bavaria, Germany, from 1913 until at least the 1980s. The company made coffee and tea sets, tableware, giftware, decorative porcelain and technical porcelain, including switches and ANTIQUESCOURTESY PHOTOThis 1800s Dutch clock had chimes and an entertaining moving scene of ships and fishing. It sold in Massachusetts for $3,444 at a Skinner Inc. auction.

The value of your Snow White tea set is about $100. Q: I have a small cut-glass bottle that has a glass stopper and a silver cap. The bottle is rectangular, about 4 inches long by inch wide. I read that in Victorian times, a widow would collect her tears in a vial. Could my bottle be one of these? A: Tear collecting is referenced in the Old Testament of the Bible, in ancient Roman and Greek writings, and in Victorian poems and novels, but whether tear collecting was fact or legend is unclear. In the mid 1800s, when Victorian mourning customs became popular, it is said vials were used to collect tears wept for the departed loved one. Later, the tears were sprinkled on the grave to signify the end of official mourning. Another version of the custom claims mourning would last until the tears evaporated. During the Victorian era, glass bottles were made with decorative caps and were similar in shape to some scent bottles. Your bottle, cut glass with a silver filigree cap, is worth about $30. If there is a mark on the silver makers mark on the cap, it will be worth more. Q: When my mother passed away, she left a bowl commemorating the 1939 New York Worlds Fair. Its round, 10 inches wide, and the stamp on the bottom shows it was made as a souvenir by Paden City Pottery, Paden City, W. Va. I am interested in finding out its value and where I might find an interested buyer. A: Your 1939 Worlds Fair bowl made by Paden City Pottery is worth from $35 to $50 in a retail sale, depending on its condition. It may be of interest to collectors of Art Deco items or Worlds Fair memorabilia. Collectors from both groups can be found online. Q: Do people still collect pewter ice cream molds? Are they safe to use? I thought it would be fun to get a mold shaped like a baby to use for a baby shower. A: There still are collectors of the metal molds, but they are much harder to find than they were years ago. The government decided that the lead in the molds was dangerous and ice cream figures could not be made at ice cream shops to be eaten by the public. Today the molds are plastic, not metal. There are vintage tin chocolate molds available at some shows. Both kinds of molds were used from about 1880 to 1950. The price of the mold depends on the maker and the size. Tip: Chocolate molds can be used to make candy and other party food. Pour melted butter into the mold, put the filled mold into the freezer. Take the mold out and unmold the fancy shaped pieces of butter f or parties. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Dixie Highway, Jupiter; (561) 401-4087 or www.habitatpbc.org/ stores. Cost: $12 The skinny: The bright opaque green of jadite glassware helped usher in a new modern age of kitchenware. The best known is FireKings Jadeite color, first made in the 1940s by Anchor Hocking. But other companies, including Jeannette and McKee, had their own variations on the kitchenware. This jadite bowl, made for Sunbeam in the 1930s or s, is well balanced and looks good for everyday use. And, if youre like me, you are sure to stir up a memory or two with one. THE FIND:Aunt Cleo Douthit loved to bake. I can see her now in her Pahokee kitchen. It had tall white cabinets that reached to the ceiling, a large 1940s GE range with controls across the top of the back of the stove and a huge 1950s GE refrigerator, with white refrigerator door on the top and a gray freezer door on the bottom. In the breakfast nook stood a yellow Formica and chrome dinette set and in the middle of the kitchen stood an enameled utility table with a Sunbeam Mixmaster that Cleo had received as a wedding present in 1933. From that mixer, she would turn out hundreds of cakes heart-shaped strawberry birthday cake layers for my sister and me because our birthdays were in February and pound cakes by the dozen. Pound cake was a staple of any Southern home. After all, you could bake the cakes in loaf or tube pans and serve them on their own or top them with fruit, ice cream or whatever struck your fancy. Cleo would rev the mixer to beat the eggs, butter and sugar, and that old Sunbeam would give off a slightly acrid smell that lingered until the cake was in the oven and giving forth aromas that promised a sweet end to any meal. Im not sure what happened to Cleos Mixmaster after she died in 1979, but I did manage to keep the Fire-King Jadeite cereal bowls she used for everything from breakfast to dessert. I now have a Sunbeam of my own that gives off that same familiar aroma of so long ago. I also have the recipes, including one for brown sugar pound cake shared by Cleos best friend, Tommie Lee DuBose. When I bake that, I hear the whir of the mixer, smell the acrid scent of its motor and remember the love that went into baking the cakes.

This just in from Wine Spectator: Last years Naples Winter Wine Festival topped the magazines list of the highest earning charity wine auctions in the country for the 11th year. The 2016 event raised $10.5 million for local nonprofits from the live auction tent. It is particularly rewarding to earn the top spot because it signifies another year of great impact for kids in Collier County, said 2016 NWWF co-chair Sandi Moran. The continued success of the Naples Winter Wine Festival has really been a team effort our wonderful group of trustees, vintners, chefs, sommeliers, staff and volunteers all work together to make the event as unique and exciting as possible, and to drive home how important the auction is to our community. The top lot last year was the first Rolls-Royce Dawn to be delivered in the United States, which sold for $750,000. Three separate bidders won lots that included tickets to Napa Valleys BottleRock Music Festival, two bespoke guitars and three magnum bottles of Gargiulo wines for $720,000.

Info: 333-7032 The Details: We were so excited when we heard Motor City Coney Island Grill was coming to town, and we havent been disappointed once. Weve been several times and have tried several hot dogs (we know we have to order a burger someday, and we probably should try breakfast as well, but when the hot dogs are so doggone good, its hard to deviate). Our favorite hot dog turns out to be the one at the top of the menu: The Motor City Coney Dog. Its pretty basic just a natural-casing hot dog (we love hearing the snap when we take a bite) topped with beanless chili and a generous drizzle of yellow mustard. Motor City imports its hot dogs and its beanless chili from Detroit. The Coney Dog comes with diced onions for the purist, but raw onions just arent our thing. One More Thing: Theres always a Soup of the Day, and the regular menu has three salads (Cobb, grilled chicken and classic Greek) as well as a Sandwiches & Handhelds category with a BLT, a grilled cheese, fish n chips and more.

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: the chocolucuma, a pie with an Oreo crumb crust, middle of caramel-flavored 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 one of Coconut Jacks main attractions. With appetizers in the $11.95-$15.95 range you might want to share them or make a lighter meal by sampling a few instead of ordering entrees, which can cost up to twice as much. 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, ho-hum sides but surprisingly good baby back ribs. The barbecue sauce boasted layers of flavor with notes of sweetness, tang, tomato and molasses. Desserts are made locally but not here; the coconut cream pie from Dollys Produce Patch & Eatery is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2016 Jimmy Ps Charred, 1833 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 643-6238 Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Deli has long been the place discerning chefs acquire their meats. Now those meats star at an adjoining steakhouse that offers an exemplary dining experience in a 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. Dinner began with focaccia served with mascarpone mixed with Bing cherries, thyme and butter. An exquisite tuna tartare 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, edible flowers and basil citrique was also excellent. The surf and turf consisted of a 6-ounce Wagyu petite filet mignon and 6-ounce lobster tail, both of which were perfectly cooked and delicious. And it came with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. A nightly special of pasta with lobster, crab and black and white truffles was superb. As was the lemon goat-cheese meringue with graham crust and wild berry coulis for dessert.

Service is remarkably brisk, thanks in part to an extensive staff that works cooperatively. Entrees may be a tad more expensive than at other Thai restaurants, but a tureen of Sushi-Thais curry is ample enough to feed two or three diners. The creamy Masaman version contained lots of onion, potatoes and shrimp along with some surprising garnishes of cashews and sliced avocado just a touch different from the usual. The chicken with basil sauce was loaded with fragrant herbs. A kimchee roll was filled with remarkably tender conch, spinach, asparagus, scallions and cucumber and laced with the spicy, sweet and sour sauce used for the namesake Korean fermented-cabbage dish. Beer, wine and sake.

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT Every Night 8:30 p.m. until Close BEST MEDITERRANEAN FOOD CUISINE REVIEWMartin Fierros is casual about ambience, serious about steakIt is a large and tony herd that comprises the Naples steakhouse scene. Most feature big leather booths and white tablecloths. You feel compelled to dress up so that the servers arent in fancier garb than you are. And the prices can get pretty fancy, too. Nothing wrong with any of that. Sometimes you want to get all gussied up and go out for a night on the town. But some nights, you just have a craving for meat without all the fuss and bother. Consider then, that theres a cozy little spot where you can dress however you like, wander in even without a reservation (although at this time of year it isnt a bad idea to make one) and sit down to a great, moderately priced steak that even comes with a vegetable. Martin Fierros Argentine Steakhouse has been around for a long, long time. A couple of years ago, it moved from a somewhat tired location on Radio Road to a small but more appealing and accessible spot at Pine Ridge and Livingston roads. The room is small and narrow, but theres also a fairly good-sized seating area out front for those who prefer wide-open spaces. There was no wait on the quiet weekday evening we recently dined there. We settled into a booth not far where a harp stood idle near a spot where live music apparently emanates some nights. From the wine list we selected the Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec, which had plenty of berries and jam and velvety tannins that worked well with the plethora of meats we consumed. We began simply, with an empanada ($3), this one ham and mozzarella, although there are beef, chicken and plain mozzarella ones as well. The pastry was flaky, the filling creamy and balanced between the mild cheese and salty ham. Id like to try a beef one the next time, but given that we had plenty of meat coming, we thought wed vary things a bit. We also sampled the Argentine Provoleta ($14), a generous portion of melted provolone served in a skillet topped with tomatoes, basil, loads of garlic cloves and a touch of wine. This one was a bit on the greasy side, but that isnt necessarily a bad thing. The gooey cheese, sweet garlic and tomatoes along with the fragrant tomatoes made for a spreadable dip on crisp pieces of bread. This dish could have served four. As it was, we barely made a dent knowing we had a lot more coming. When it comes to entrees, customers arent forced to have meat (although judging from the blazing grill you see as you walk in the door, its clear that meats are the stars here). There are pasta entrees (ravioli and cavatappi), plus salmon, rainbow trout, sea scallops and shrimp dishes on the menu. And shrimp and calamari show up on the appetizer menu, along with a variety of salads, including a grilled watermelon salad that looked appealing with arugula, feta, cherry tomatoes and balsamic reduction.) But lets get to the meat of this review. You can choose from one of three parrilladas, or grilled meat medleys, available. One has beef short rib, churrasco steak, swee4tbreads, beef tripe, blood sausage and chorizo. Theres also one with surf and turf, and then theres the meat lovers ($45), which we ordered. It consisted of beef short rib, churrasco steak, pork tenderloin, chicken breast and chorizo and two side dishes. We picked the fried yucca and mixed vegetables. This platter could easily serve two with the amount of protein that arrives at the table. The meat was cooked to order and had a delicious grilled flavor. I was most partial to the chorizo and pork tenderloin. The yucca was served like crisp French fries, making them drier than Im accustomed to, but tasty. We liked the savory dipping sauce that accompanied them. The vegetables green beans, asparagus, mushrooms, red onions and tomatoes were properly cooked and drizzled with soy, vinegar, garlic and balsamic reduction. The best meat we had was the quartet of lamb chops ($26). They were tender and delicate in flavor with a generous dollop of mint jelly. I liked the sweet plantains I chose to go with it. I picked another side as an extra, the rusa (potato) salad ($5), which contained carrots, eggs and mayonnaise but was surprisingly bland. Dessert? Well, of course. How about dulce de leches crepes ($7), two tender crepes rolled around incredibly sweet, caramel-flavored filling adorned with whipped topping just the thing after a heavy meat meal. Clearly, this isnt a place to go when you are on a diet unless its of the low-carb variety. But we ate like royalty and were treated that way as well, even though we were dressed like serfs. And we left with a respectable amount of meat for yet another meal. The servers were unobtrusive but friendly and attentive. Should you get a craving for a serious slab of well-grilled meat with perhaps a side of crisp yucca fries, I suggest steering toward Martin Fierros. Theres a reason this place has stuck around so long. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Martin Fierro Argentine Steakhouse>> Hours: Noon to 9 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price: Appetizers, $3-$14; entrees, $13-$60 >> Beverages: Beer and wine served. >> Seating: Booths and conventional tables indoors, tables outdoors >> Specialties of the house: Grilled meats >> Volume: Low to moderate >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: www.martin errosteakhouse.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: Marqueza Plaza, 13040 Livingston Road, Naples; 300-4777SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe meat lovers parrillada contains chorizo, pork tenderloin, chicken breast, churrasco steak and beef short ribs.

Parade of Home visitors rave about Naples Reserves models, amenities and lifestyleOoh. Aah. Wow. A single word said it all from many of the more than 2,000 visitors and VIP guests who explored Naples Reserves 16 model homes, envisioned their version of island time at our $7 million Island Club and discovered a casually awesome lifestyle during the Collier Building Industry Associations single-site Parade of Homes. We even saw a few aha! moments when guests first glimpsed Naples Reserves 125-acre Eagle Lake, its Kontiki Island and the Island Clubs resortrivaling amenities beach, tiki bar and umbrella drinks included. Visitors quickly understood why sales have surged in our special 688-acre lakefront community with soon-to-be residents eager to live and play on the water. Visitors were absolutely astounded by the acres and acres of lakes at Naples Reserve, said Don Mears, vice president, land and development for award-winning iStar, which created Naples Reserve within 22 freshwater lakes. They never imaged a community like this in Naples. The models, located in five of Naples Reserves 11 neighborhoods, feature Southern Coastal architecture a style reminiscent of Floridas old beach towns and designs by Ashton Woods, D.R. Horton, Florida Lifestyle Homes, KTS Homes, Lundstrom Development, Marvin Development, McGarvey Custom Homes and Stock Signature Homes. Naples Reserves VIP event experience included musical entertainment, Hawaiian hula and fire dancers and water ball performances in the Island Clubs resortstyle pool. Attendees were greeted with leis and gathered at the Tiki Bar and in Latitudes Cafe. Event partners, stationed at each model home, were selected for their brands, perfectly complementing the lifestyle at Naples Reserve from paddleboards to pet gear, bikes and athleisure. They included B&W Golf Cars, BKS Yoga Studio, Clyde Butcher Photography/Big Cypress Gallery, Duffy Electric Boat Company, For Footed Friends, Lilly Pulitzer, Naples Outfitters, Paws & Prints Pet Photography and Western Bike. Hosting the Parade of Homes allowed us to publically unveil Naples Reserve, Mears said. Visitors were simply amazed at all the community has to offer. He also noted the event raised $6,000 for the CBIAs scholarship fund. The Island Club features a community building and separate fitness center and offers beach volleyball and bocce courts plus plenty of spaces to relax.

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 Sub-Zero 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 Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. 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-theart 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. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: Kalea Bays new tower is 22 stories tall. Kalea Bay residences have very open floor plans. All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and SubZero appliances and an oversized island.

Solar power proves to be a powerful attractionTurnout for first public event at Babcock Ranch exceeded all expectationsOver the past year, the nations most innovative, sustainable new community has been taking root just beyond the front gates of Babcock Ranch. Kitson & Partners has now put out the welcome mat for the public to come experience this new hometown in the making, and the response is unprecedented. Organizers of Founders Festival held March 11-12 hoped to attract around 2,500 people each day for the first public event at Babcock Ranch. Law enforcement officials estimate turnout over the course of the weekend was between 15-20 thousand, We knew people were excited about the concept of a sustainable, solar-powered town where people can reconnect with the environment and with each other, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. What we learned this weekend is that we have clearly struck a chord. The weekend kicked off with 10k, 5k and 1k events that attracted nearly 600 runners. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the first two buildings at Founders Square was followed by a full day of live music and family activities. While some checked out kayaks and paddleboards to enjoy Lake Babcock, others cast lines from the fishing pier or hiked trails. However, tours of model homes were the most popular activity. It was unlike anything I have ever experienced with a community opening, said Kitt Kearney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Homes by Towne. There were literally people waiting in line to get in. Many said they have been watching Babcock Ranch for a long time. They were excited that it is finally here and happy that they can now buy homes to live here. Buyers in the first neighborhood of Lake Timber will choose from a broad range of home styles and floor plans from five different buildersStock Development, Homes by Town, Florida Lifestyle Homes, Fox Premier Builders and Castle Harbor Homes. I think the takeaway for us is a realization that if you build a dream that becomes reality, people will come, said Meryl Rojas, director of sales and marketing for Fox Premier Builders. The visitors we met with were impressed with our serious approach to the environmental sensibilities and energy efficiency standards that Babcock Ranch represents. The first seven of fifteen model homes planned for Lake Timber were open for viewing during the opening weekend. Many more will be completed in the coming weeks. The good news is you dont have to brave massive crowds to keep tabs on progress. The gates are wide open and the public is welcome to tour model homes, eat at the Table & Tap restaurant, launch outdoor adventures at Curry Creek Outfitters or enjoy the trails and lakes seven days a week. a i b M k v w r c r h o w Above: The Concert Series that launched at Founders Festival will continue with Live Music from the bandshell every Tuesday and Saturday evening starting on March 25.

ALLURE, the new 32-story condominium to be built by JAXI on the Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, is undoubtedly the best value for luxurious waterfront living on Floridas west coast. Since JAXI was able to purchase the land at an extremely significant discount, with much of the early site work for the development already completed, the developers are passing the savings on to buyers, resulting in prices for beautiful new residences that are almost 25% less than other area waterfront condominiums. 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. With other area condominiums in Bonita Springs, Estero and Naples going for as much as $1.17 million or more for a 3-bedroom residence, ALLUREs pricing for the same size home starts in the low $700s, resulting in a tremendous value for those looking to live the waterfront lifestyle in a tropical urban locale, says ALLURE Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez. In addition to the great value and luxurious features and amenities, ALLUREs enviable location puts residents in the middle of all that is delightful about this newly-revitalized, historic, area of Fort Myers. With over 65 cafes, bars and restaurants, the pedestrian and pet-friendly historic downtown offers unlimited options for dining and nightlife to suit any taste, and best of all, its just a short walk or trolley ride away from ALLURE. Arts and culture abound in the River District where the cobblestone-streets are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater. ALLURE boasts an array of resortstyle building amenities: a private screening room with theater-style seating; state-of-the-art gym; pool deck with heated cascading infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards, game tables; bocce ball and barbecue grills on the rooftop, pickleball by the pool and many other luxury features.
