DIMENSIONS ASEE FLIP TOPS, A11 From the TopMeet Tim Cartwright, a man with a wealth of business and community interests. B1 Fourth-grade teacher Donna Treiser started collecting pull tabs/flip tops from aluminum cans 15 years ago. When her daughter was a patient at the Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida (now Golisano Childrens Hospital), Ms. Treiser learned of the wonderful assistance Ronald McDonald House provides for families of sick children. This inspired her to start collecting flip tops for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Floridas fundraising drive. The initial goal was to have 8,000 flip tops by the time her father turned 80, which she achieved in eight months time. Then the project expanded. If a little is good, more is better, Ms. Treiser reasoned. So she reset her sights to collect 1 million flip tops for RMHC by the time of her retirement from teaching. Her idea was to develop a math lesson for her students in counting and keeping a running total of flip tops as they amassed more and more and more. In the process, shes also teaching her students a lesson in caring for others. The collection process has become a mission in itself. Ms. Treisers students, year after year, have expanded the effort, embracing the SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ 3D printing, a 30-year-old technology, reaches new heights in creating the sublime, and becomes more and more affordable at the same time.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARY For PresidentFor some time now, many Americans have recognized that presidential candidates often drift like rudderless yachts away from the row-boat experiences of ordinary citizens. Since a conservative Supreme Court has established campaign finance laws that allow billionaires to unduly sway elections, many Americans also recognize that something has to change. It wont be the campaign finance laws not in time for the 2016 election, which is only 18 months away. And probably not anytime soon thereafter. So that means the temper and quality of the candidates themselves must change. If we as a people cannot inure ourselves to the propagandistic influence of huge wealth, perhaps we can require our leaders to inure themselves. From now on in the United States, presidential candidates should be required to demonstrate new levels of competence, experience and understanding, as well as resistance to big-bucks influence. How? By entering and graduating from a demanding United States Presidential Academy. Such an elite academy would require the discipline, brains and toughness that our military academies demand of their graduates, but without some of the martial trappings. In loose terms, the education of a president would be based on sharing and understanding the experiences of his or her fellow Americans. USPA graduate goals should include: Understanding the mindsets of working people and nonor under-working people. Acquiring a strong education in history, literature and the sciences, especially earth sciences. Mastering the old virtues of our greatest presidents, to develop the characters of Washington and Adams, Lincoln and the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy.April, so far, has been a particularly pointed reminder of the need for such an academy. Florida alone has now offered up two of the three candidates Most Likely To Succeed in their quest for the White House in 2016: Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. The third newly announced and Most Likely candidate is Hillary Clinton, who has very little to do with Florida judging by her suntan. As for Jeb Bush, who grew up rich and privileged, and Sen. Rubio, who escaped his working-class roots in West Miami as fast as he could and began (in 2010) spending nights partying on a yacht anchored in the Hamptons and owned by one of the Fanjul brothers (owners of Domino Sugar, Florida Crystals, C&H Sugar and so on), both are in desperate need of the hard training and preparation implicit in a USPA education. So is Mrs. Clinton, along with the likes of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Scott Walker on the right, or Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on the left. All of them need the hard training, since each of them has been caught eyeballing the White House and drooling.Upon reporting for duty, every USPA candidate would be sent out alone to buy his or her clothes at Goodwill, then find a car for less than $2,000, then pay for gas, insurance and repairs at the nearest used-car lot, then secure an apartment with at least one bedroom, and then work 35 to 40 hours a week at a job paying minimum wage, while supporting two children alone, for a year. Since the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals might complain about the hardship of such training on children, they could be wind-up dolls, as long as they cried every three hours during the night, defecated regularly into their diapers, and passed their colds to the candidates, while also demanding a lot of attention after daycare which, by the way, each candidate would have to pay for at a rate of $280 a week, per child. The second and third years at the USPA would be devoted almost solely to academic education, punctuated at great length by steady work as ditch-diggers, tomato pickers, Walmart clerks, nurses aides, truck drivers, factory-line workers, janitors, restaurant servers and fry cooks. Reading in literature would include The Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers; several histories of the United States; and the novels, stories, poems and essays of such writers as Cooper, Melville, Twain, Stowe, Alcott, B ellamy, Chopin, Baum, James, Wharton, Sinclair, Wolfe, Cather, Cummings, Dreiser, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Faulkner, Percy, Porter, Saroyan, Penn Warren, Salinger, Berry, Baldwin, Chandler, Kerouac, Lee, Styron, Porter, Malamud, Morrison, Welty, Erdrich, Allende, Hijuelos, McCarthy, Hilliard, McMurtry, Cisneros, Kingsolver and a few hundred others. Training in science would include short expeditions to points ranging from the North Pole to the equator, along with both lab and academic work focusing in particular on climate change and its causes and consequences. Science, by the way, is spelled, S-CI-E-N-C-E (for the benefit of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz). Finally, each candidate would be required to master several of the skills of Americas greatest elected leaders, starting with combat. In the tradition of George Washington, who had a number of horses shot out from under him and since the U.S. typically has a war or two going somewhere (and if not, we can always start a small one for the candidates) each aspirant would be trained at the U.S. Army Infantry School at Fort Benning and then dropped into a front-line combat unit. In addition, and in the tradition of Abe Lincoln, the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower and JFK, candidates would have to hold an axe at arms length for an hour, charge up a hill under fire, smoke a long cigar, fire field artillery, plan the invasion of Europe and drive a PT boat (but better than Kennedy, who managed to get his sunk). Only then would candidates be allowed to place their names in that sacred sanctuary: the American voting booth.And only then could they list their names under those hallowed words: For President. Roger is away. This column first ran on April 15, 2015. w i i p roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The public announcement of the discovery had a certain je ne sais quoi, too. It occurred during National Womens History Month. During the month, thousands of schools, organizations, and communities host events nationwide in celebration of womens history. It is a teach-in broadly supported by dignitaries of all stripes. Everyone, it seems, cant say enough nice things about womens historical contributions to this country. It wasnt always so. It took decades for the menfolk to warm up to the idea that women as historical figures were worth celebrating. But wouldnt you know it, President Jimmy Carter broke the ice. Back in March 1980, he declared National Womens History Week with a presidential proclamation. In it, he wrote, I urge libraries, schools, and community organizations to focus their observances on the leaders who struggled for equality Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman and Alice Paul. Understanding the true history of our country will help us to comprehend the need for full equality under the law for all our people. This is the same man, now 93, who said recently he believes the mistreatment of women and girls is the No. 1 human rights abuse in the world because, he said, In general, men dont give a damn. After Carters proclamation, it wasnt clear the celebration would stick. Each year required a renewed effort to get it on the presidents desk, and the date kept changing. It was also obvious that a single week hardly did justice to achievements of American women. By 1987, popular momentum grew and the short course gave way. A monthlong celebration replaced it, to be held in perpetuity. Since then, every president, including President Trump, has honored the tradition. Thus was the stage set for the University of Rochesters announcement that it had acquired a newly found collection of hundreds of letters and documents, written between 1869 and 1880 by the movers-and-shakers of the suffrage movement, the most prominent being Susan B. Anthony. Isabella Beecher Hooker was the correspondent who, back in the day, tucked the documents away for safekeeping. The battered crate holding the cache turned up in a barn almost 140 years later. The universitys rare books librarian, Lori Birrell, said Hooker was from a family of reformers and half-sister to abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher, educator Catharine Beecher and novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe. The large volume of materials covers a critical time in the suffrage movement. Said Birrell, With the 14th Amendment just passed, newly enshrining a host of citizenship rights, and the debate raging over granting black men the right to vote, the time was very contentious. The movements leaders suffered from deep angst as they watched their chances slip away of womens inclusion in the 15th Amendment. Hookers communications capture the intersection between dueling factions. The internal politics threatened to tear the movement asunder. The archive is expected to provide new insights into the movements struggle to move forward in the face of daunting barriers to its success. In reflection, Birrell said, Something that Ive been really struck by is just how exhausting it must have been to try to keep going for this long. You get to this period in the 1870s and theyve tried everything state, national, they tried voting and then got arrested for it in 1872. Theyve tried all of these things and they just kept at it. To read that year after year after year in these letters is simply amazing. Well, Ms. Birrell, here we are in 2017. The modern womens movement is no less amazing nor the struggles any less exhausting than those our predecessors encountered in decades past. For example, Vice President Mike Pence recently cast the tie-breaking vote in the U.S. Senate to approve legislation that allows states to deny federal familyplanning funds to more than 650 Planned Parenthood clinics because they provide abortion counseling and legal, safe abortions. Federal law already bars the use of tax dollars for abortion services, except in the case of rape, incest and risk to the womans health. Once President Trump signs the bill into law, millions of poor and low-income women are at risk of losing their access to family-planning and reproductive healthcare services. Just last month, President Trump signed something else: his proclamation declaring March as National Womens History Month. In it he said, America will continue to fight for womens rights and equality across the country and around the world. Though poverty holds back many women, America cannot and will not allow this to persist. We will empower all women to pursue their American dreams, to live, work and thrive in safe communities that allow them to protect and provide for themselves and their families. He added, America is also mindful of the fight that continues for so many women around the world, often not protected and treated disgracefully as second-class citizens. Truer lies were never spoken.

This isnt a function of poll numbers, or any melodrama of the past months, but something more fundamental: No officeholder in Washington seems to understand President Donald Trumps populism or have a cogent theory of how to effect it in practice, including the president himself. House Speaker Paul Ryan isnt a populist and doesnt want to be a populist. He has spent his adult life committed to a traditional limited-government agenda. He crafted his own platform during the campaign, the so-called Better Way agenda, to differentiate congressional Republicans from Trump.Trump, for his part, has lacked the knowledge, focus or interest to translate his populism into legislative form. Hes deferred to others on legislative priorities and strategies, and his abiding passion in the health-care debate was, by all accounts, simply getting to a signing ceremony. In light of all this, the product of the Ryan-Trump partnership was a healthcare bill bizarrely at odds with a national election Republicans had just won on the strength of working-class voters. Under the GOP replacement, fewer people would have had coverage, and workers further down the income scale would have been particularly hard hit. Neither of these facts seemed to exercise the White House enough to try to do anything to fix them.Maybe Ryan doesnt get the new political reality created by Trumps victory, as the presidents boosters like to say. But what excuse does the president himself have for evidently not getting it, either?A President Trump acting more in keeping with his free-floating reflex to take care of people, as expressed in speeches and interviews, would have pushed the health bill to the left. But Trump so far hasnt followed the logic of his own politics. His path not taken would have been to give an inaugural address with less carnage and more kumbayah. Immediately invite Chuck Schumer to the White House and tell him, Chuck, youre not leaving this building until we agree on an infrastructure package. Take the resulting big-spending proposal and dare the GOP leadership to defy him. Pass it with a bipartisan coalition. Now that the initial health-care bill has gone down, theres loose talk from the White House of wooing Democrats, but a lot has transpired the past few months that makes this much harder. Most importantly, the left-wing resistance to Trump is fully activated and prepared to exact punishment on any quislings. If things continue to go badly over this first year, its easy to see Trump turning to the New York Democrats in his White House. This would entail less emphasis on trade, immigration and fights with the mainstream media, and more emphasis on a nonideological economic boosterism. The loose antecedent for this scenario is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who swept into office in California as a drain-the-swamp reformer after winning a populist crusade, and then recalibrated to accommodate the system after suffering politically damaging setbacks. The range of possible outcomes of the Trump presidency is still wide. Unexpectedly, one of them is that his most die-hard populist supporters will eventually be able to say that Trumpism, like socialism, hasnt failed, its just never been tried.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSome of the capabilities of this emerging technology as it is being used across the region: Students at Florida Gulf Coast University are printing out prosthetic hands for a local elementary school boy. A Riviera Beach-based design and manufacturing company, RGF Environmental, has made its own 3D printers to create high-definition parts for air and water purifiers. Libraries in Charlotte County are just starting to test out new 3D printers that will be available to the public in the fall. And 3D Printing of Florida, a design and print shop in Naples, helps entrepreneurs create just about whatever they can imagine. We purchased a custom designed 7-inch-tall print of Florida Weeklys Paper Boy mascot ($249.10 including tax) to get a better idea of how the printing process works. As 3D printing becomes more common both by consumers and businesses, with printers capable of producing a vast array of sizes, shapes and materials, there are also big implications for manufacturers, designers and intellectual property rights issues. Companies that make things capable of being printed cheaply in 3D may in the next decade start to deal with circumstances similar to what the music industry faced as file-sharing became common on a massive scale, suggested John F. Hornick, a Washington, D.C.based intellectual property attorney and author of D Printing Will Rock the World. While there is little case law regarding 3D printing at this point, he believes it will probably not ultimately be feasible to try to sue everyone who prints out products protected by intellectual property rules. Mr. Hornick quotes MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld who said, You cant sue the human race. As a result, he envisions as one possibility something like an iTunes for things business model for purchasing files with 3D objects. The way the music industry used to police itself was with copyrights, he said. If they saw that you were downloading music, they might come after you. But then they started to realize there was so much of it happening and it was so easy that copyright wasnt really adequate any longer to protect artists rights. So they came up with the iTunes business model which made it cheaper and easy enough to get music that you were unlikely to steal it. He pointed out that big brand-name companies such as Toshiba and Canon are developing desktop machines, and believes that in the next decade, a variety of 3D printers will be common in homes to print convenient things whether a small kitchen gadget or a tool for the woodworking shop in your garage. Now, hobbyist desktop printers generally cost anywhere from less than $500 to $5,000. The printers are becoming more common in the business and industrial world as well, with costs that top out at about $5 million, Mr. Hornick said. The technology has been around for over 30 years but I view it as not being a mature industry, he said, with it mostly being used for prototypes and design. But over the last several years the technology is being used more and more for production parts and so because of that you have an industry thats been around for 30 or so years but its almost like its a new industry. How a basic 3D print job worksTo print out an object, computer software slices it up and sends it to the printer to be printed one small layer at a time. And instead of ink onto paper, plastic is fed through a heated nozzle onto a build plate. First, you create a 3D design on your computer or download one off the Internet, explained Aaron Blumberg, who helps provide training on how to use 3D printers for the Southwest Florida Library Network. There are many design programs, such as CAD software, which is what architects use to create blue prints. Tinkercad is a good one for starters, for kids or adults, Mr. Blumberg said. It walks you through the process of making pretty much any object (though the quality of the print can vary widely). Youre really limited to your imagination, usually, he said. Or instead of creating your own thingamajig, you could download a file from an open-source 3D library of things such as MakerBots Thingiverse with designs the company has created. Then you save your work as an STL file and use the printing software that came with the printer or an open-source software to send it to the printer. You get a print page preview, kind of like with an Adobe or Word document, and at that point you can manipulate the print to some extent, such as sizing or adding scaffolding that pops off when youre done. Then once thats taken care of, you pretty much hit print, Mr. Blumberg said. The file goes to the printer, which starts heating up the extruder nozzle. Once heated it grabs the filament from a spool and starts pushing it through onto the build plate a layer at a time. Depending on the quality, size and density, items could take anywhere from 20 minutes to 36 hours, Mr. Blumberg has found.At FGCU, printing prosthetics If the internet is full of 3D toys and trinkets you can download and print for your amusement, there are also greater possibilities emerging. A website called enablingthefuture.org is an open-source site and volunteer network dedicated to making 3D printed prosthetics for children. It has enabled undergraduate students in Florida Gulf Coast Universitys bioengineering department to download for free copies of a prosthetic hand, which they custom fit to a patient. Then they can test it out and make modifications such as improving its gripping strength or adding friction between fingers and objects. North Fort Myers resident Tina Tillmans 8-year-old son, James Tillman IV, or Jimmy, is getting the chance to test out the hand and help the students improve it both for himself and potentially other patients. The Tillmans were 3DFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSJimmy Tillman, here with his mom, Tina, is working with FGCU bioengineering students to improve and customize a prosthetic hand that is available for downloading at www. enablingthefuture.org. After being printed off one of FGCUs midline desktop 3D printers, the hand requires some assembly.

Tony Grippo, a 23-year-old biomedical engineering major who is finishing up his junior year at FGCU, has helped lead the extracurricular project. Jimmy, who was born without a fully formed left hand his dominant one controls his new printed one by flexing his wrist muscles to open or close the fingers. Besides making changes to the hand such as adjusting the placement of the thumb to make it easier to pick things up, Mr. Grippo has also considered changes such as adding Lego bumps to the surface so James can build on it. I want it to be not only as good as a hand but I want it to be something he can boast about as well, he said. One of the benefits of 3D printing technology is the ability to make tweaks easily and cheaply, or print replacement parts if Jimmy breaks them during an activity such as bike riding or climbing trees or if he grows an inch and needs a size adjustment. Mr. Grippo and his classmates used Solidworks software to render the hand, and printed it out on an Ultimaker 2 Extended, one of FGCUs midline desktop 3D printers available to students. It takes about 10 hours to print out. The hand is an affordable option for Jimmy while hes growing up, Ms. Tillman said. Later he can decide if hed like a more permanent prosthetic hand or would rather go without one, as he has already been able to do most activities other kids can do without it. Its also less expensive and less bulky than a traditional prosthesis, and it can be worn while swimming. Jimmy likes working with Mr. Grippo and the other students. Its very exciting when youre a 7-year old boy and you get to work with these really, really, really big kids, and you get to tell them what to do, Ms. Tillman said. Thats really cool. But he also likes that hes going to be able to help one of his friends. He tells his mom, I can make it better for someone like me. While FGCU has long had 3D printing capability, Dr. Lura said, Our ability for students to have access to it and the cost has gone down substantially in the last few years. The department plans to add another higher resolution printer soon that will also allow them to print in different plastics. While students enjoy using the printers, attempting to make smaller or intricate parts expose their limitations, a useful learning experience, Dr. Lura said: The initial reaction is always, hey, thats really cool. But then once they use it for a while they get frustrated by the fact that it doesnt work perfectly every time. At some point, they start trying to push the limits of what the machines can do and they realize that this, like all things, is not a miracle magic printing machine. It has its own limitations.Inside a 3D print shop In a Naples business district, 3D Printing of Florida is a shop and design studio that prints out all kinds of objects for clients, such as lifelike wedding cake toppers of the bride and groom. Owner Michael Carufe, 32, is a former BMW technician who grew up in Naples. Im an electronic whiz kid, as they say, said Mr. Carufe, who has always loved inventing and design. (3D printing) was just a way to express my thoughts in a real space. Its one thing to draw something and another to make it. There are few limits on forms he can print, he says, for instance a model of a Tyrannosaurus Rex hes working on for a local school. He is able to print avionics as well as medical products, such as a 3D replica of an MRI that could help doctors better fix a shattered bone. The shop also often combines traditional or CNC machining, such as fabricating soft metal or wood, with 3D printing. People always ask me what can we make, he said. The list is easier to tell you what we cant make. We dont make firearms and nothing that can be launched to the moon. They created and printed Florida Weeklys Paper Boy mascot on a computer system built by Mr. Carufe, which includes virtual reality goggles to help visualize an object in full-life size and fine tune small details. They also have the capability to scan in and print replicas of people or large objects on site like pictures come to life, expressions on faces complete. For now, full-color 3D printing is outsourced and needs to be ordered well in advance. It requires a different printer and material, made mostly of gypsum powder.The shop usually turns out two prototypes per week or more, original inventions from local designers or entrepreneurs. One common use of 3D printing is creating models of products to help attract investors, or sometimes the end product itself, whether a fishing lure or your idea for a new ergonomic computer mouse. 3D print manufacturing Over the last decade, a Riviera Beachbased company that designs and manufactures systems to purify air, water and food, has built its own 3D printers. RGF Environmental Group Inc. started making the printers over the last decade as a cost-effective way to manufacture intricate shapes for products that, for instance, clean air in a car or a home, or reduce odors and bacteria in water using advanced oxidation systems. Theyre finally getting commercialized to the point where the prices are down and a lot of the companies could afford them, but initially we did it ourselves, said Walter Ellis, executive vice president and general manager. Were using them every day now. Initially it was just for new product development and design concepts and things like that. The company now has four printers and its latest, under development, will print with ceramics and metal. They print both for design, to test items, and to create final, patented products. Mr. Ellis describes the ceramic material as almost like a very thick toothpaste. It is actually pushed out with a piston down through the nozzle, layer by layer. Then its air dried and fired off in a kiln. For metal printing, one method uses a printer that sets down a thin metal layer in powder form, then melts layer after layer over it using a laser. Designing their own printers also allows them to print larger objects as well as optimize tiny details in high resolution for an optimal look and fit. We can do layers now that are one micron thick, Mr. Ellis said. That took a long time to get. The applications of 3D printing are endless. From simple gurines and objects to prosthetic limbs and organs to entire houses. The technology is advancing rapidly. The star in the creation of 3D printed objects is, of course, the 3D printer, but the process begins with an idea and computer software. 3D printing processPreparation Extruder X axis Y axis Z axis Filament Build platePrintingSimilar to common of ce and home printers the 3D printers head moves back and forth (X) and side-to-side (Y). Enter the Z axis (up and down). The 3D print head, called the extruder, pulls in the lament material, heats it and distributes it to the build plate in thin layers measuring about 20 microns. It continues stacking layers until the structure is complete. The nished model, called a mesh, is prepared and sent to the 3D printer.Artists use CAD software to create a mesh. A 3D scanner uses projected light and cameras to measure the three-dimensional surfaces of an object. A string-like material similar to shing line. As the nozzle moves back and forth material is laid down layer upon layer to form the nal model. Heating softens the lament Filament is fed downwardSCOTT SLEEPER / FLORIDA WEEKLY A 3D model is created from scratch using a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software program.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member* Coming to area librariesThe Southwest Florida Library Network, a cooperative that provides resources to Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Monroe counties, got its first 3D printer in 2014. Aaron Blumberg helps train members who borrow the printers for use for programing or outreach. They have three printers, a MakerBot, Afinia H800, and a CubePro Trio, a larger, higher-end printer. I call MakerBot my workhorse because I can do large quantities on it and I dont usually have to worry about it clogging or something, said Mr. Blumberg, SWFLNs continuing education coordinator. Fixing a clog can be as simple as popping some parts off and removing plastic to unscrewing the entire extruder, taking plastic out, and reassembling. Some of the printers we have there are actually pieces in it that were printed on another 3D printer, Mr. Blumberg said. So if you have a part broken you actually have the files to print out the parts and fix your printer. PLA and ABS are the most common types of biodegradable plastic for 3D printing. You can get a lot of print jobs out of one spool, Mr. Blumberg said. MakerBot advertises a 1 kilogram natural colored ABS spool for $43 which the company says is enough to print 392 chess pieces (12 complete sets but only in one color). Another color spool costs $48. Some local libraries are just getting started with 3D programs, including the Charlotte County Library System, which recently purchased printers for each of its four branches. Well be launching the service for the public in September, offering a range of workshops for all ages and the ability for members of the public to reserve the printers in order to work on their own creations, wrote Lanette Hart, libraries and history division manager in Charlotte County. She added there are volunteer opportunities to assist staff in creating makerspace labs where the printers will be used, and to contact your local Charlotte library branch for more information. Mid-County Regional Library in Charlotte just got a LulzBot TAZ 6 printer set up in the last month. Employees have printed a few items like Rocktopus, a sort of LulzBot mascot that comes with the printer. Its definitely pretty cool but it can take a long time (to print) depending on how large your piece is so you wouldnt stand there and watch it the whole time, said Hana Brown, youth services librarian. We may use it just to show the kids, the technology is out there, to give them ideas for things they want to create in the future.

Even Ms. Treisers father, until his passing at age 94, was still collecting for her. A three-time cancer survivor, Ms. Treiser never lost her determination or focus on flip tops for RMH, always asking her doctors and nurses to collect for the cause. After teaching for 40 years, she retires in June from Big Cypress Elementary School. As of press time earlier this week, the flip-top count was 883,174. Do the math. Ms. Treiser and her fourth-graders still need 116,825 flip tops, and theyre counting on everyone in Collier County to help them get there before its time to deliver what theyve amassed to RMHC, which will exchange them for cash at its recycling center partner. According to Ms. Treiser, 1,552 flip tops equal 1 pound, and the recycling value per pound ranges from 40 to 60 cents. Do the math and its clear that the charity wont reap millions of dollars. But the value of the lessons learned for Ms. Treisers hundreds of students over the years? Priceless. To contribute to the collection, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here is an email sent by Richard LeBer, Harry Chapin Food Bank president and CEO, on March 21 to the state agriculture department regarding the proposed loss of CSFP, along with the state agriculture departments response.From: Richard LeBer Sent: Tuesday, March 21, 2017 11:31 AM To: Herman McBride Cc: Mallory Reeves Subject: CSFP program for Southwest Florida Herman, My team at the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida are very pleased that the Federal Government has authorized such a large increase in the allocated CSFP cases for the state of Florida, and take some pride that our work in creating a pilot program over the past couple of years helped build the case for that increase. However, as I have expressed to you, we are concerned that the proposed changes to the distribution of CSFP cases in our territory may create hardship as well as practical problems with distribution. Unlike other programs such as TEFAP, CSFP food is designated for speci c individuals. Here in Southwest Florida, we have 2,580 such seniors who are eligible and who have been receiving this food for some time more than a year in some cases. The proposed changes will halt distribution to 2,284 of them, causing them clear and unavoidable personal hardship We work with 40 other organizations that act as distribution points for CSFP food, 36 of which are in areas where there would no longer be any distribution at all under the new allocation and where the eligible individuals will not have any other options for food. Because of this, we are aware that it will be immediately obvious and public that many seniors are no longer receiving assistance. CSFP distribution, unlike other USDA programs, is complex and challenging to manage ef ciently. It took us several months to gure it out here in Southwest Florida and we have been praised at the national CSFP convention for guring it out so quickly. The proposed changes will force us to start anew, expanding in rural communities that have additional challenges due to lack of infrastructure, and learning new lessons about how to meet those communities particular distribution challenges. This is going to be particularly dif cult in Hendry and Glades Counties. As rural counties, those are more challenging than most because of the lack of infrastructure and community organizations that are suitable distribution points. We will not have much time to get it right. USDA will do their evaluation beginning in July, immediately after we increase distribution into both Hendry and Glades. Given that they evaluate performance of CSFP using a stringent 95% minimum standard and apply stiff penalties for missing that standard, we have concern over the ability to grow from 296 cases to 1,450 cases so quickly. We understand the desire to match distribution with need, however we hope you will reconsider the transition plan for Southwest Florida in light of the above. We understand from your staff that you would like notices regarding the proposed changes to be distributed beginning with April distributions. We will begin building those kits next week, and will need to insert notices at that time. We will need to notify our partners and community leaders of the coming changes, including the staff of the 36 organizations who will lose distribution, prior to the seniors receiving notice of the change in their April kits. We look forward to your guidance and continuing to work with you to make the CSFP program successful. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Richard Richard LeBer President & CEO Harry Chapin Food Bank of SW Florida email@example.com 3760 Fowler Street, Fort Myers FL 33901 2221 Corporation Blvd, Naples FL 34109 Of ce 239-334-7007 x125 Cell 239-285-5688 Here is the state agriculture departments responseFrom: Mcbride, Herman [mailto:Herman.McBride@freshfrom orida.com] Sent: Friday, March 31, 2017 5:01 PM To: Richard LeBer Cc: Reeves, Mallory Subject: Good afternoon Mr. LeBer, This is a follow-up to our telephone conference on March 10, 2017 as well as this afternoon. As mentioned, FDACS determined a need to develop a CSFP distribution model which would identify Florida counties where CSFP distribution will have the most impact. As a result of this model, three counties (Charlotte, Collier, Lee) in which Harry Chapin Food Bank currently distributes CSFP caseloads will end effective June 30, 2017. As shared with you and your staff, to assist in this transition, FDACS has created a communications notice for your agency to provide to CSFP recipients impacted by this direction. This notice will inform recipients when the program will be ending in their county as well as provide them with a listing of other food resources available in their community. Along with the standard monthly newsletter, your agency should expect to receive these notices no later than April 4, 2017. Within the next few weeks, you should expect to receive an amendment to your contract. The amendment will re ect the removal of the aforementioned counties and will only list counties in which Harry Chapin will be contracted to distribute CSFP caseloads as well as contractual services expectations. As we move into this new CSFP distribution model, FDACS staff are here to assist your agency to help reduce any challenges your agency may encounter. Therefore, please feel free to contact me or our Household Programs Director, Mallory Reeves at (407) 888-8751. Respectfully, Herman McBride, MSW Chief, Bureau of Food Distribution Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (850) 617-7168 Of ce (850)617-7171 Fax Herman.McBride@FreshFromFlorida.com The Holland Building 600 South Calhoun Street, Suite 120 Tallahassee, Fl 32399Almost 2,300 low-income seniors in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties will no longer receive supplemental food from a government program operated by the Harry Chapin Food Bank starting July 1, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The states decision cuts off 2,284 lowincome seniors in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties from receiving nutritious food through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, a federal program administered by the state agriculture department. The department is eliminating the program in the three counties because the state says its new state distribution model has determined they are no longer among Florida counties where the program will have the most impact. Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank that serves the counties, wants the state to reconsider. This change is unnecessary and will cause suffering, said Mr. LeBer. The (state) Department of Agricultures decision arbitrarily eliminates a critical source of food to many of our poorest seniors. We hope they will reconsider. The program was implemented in Florida in January 2015, with Harry Chapin Food Bank as the only sanctioned provider in the state. The food bank currently serves 2,580 seniors through CSFP in its five-county service area of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties. About 300 seniors are on a waiting list. Additionally, the state is requiring the food bank to expand the program in Hendry and Glades counties, agricultural communities with smaller senior populations. In part because the pilot program at the food bank has been so successful, the federal government is now allowing CSFP to be expanded across the state, to nearly 10,000 cases, except in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties, the food banks three largest distribution areas. The states decision will affect clients receiving CSFP food at 36 of the food banks 150 partner agencies, including Jewish Family and Community Services of Southwest Florida. This program is vitally important to ensure the seniors who suffer from food insecurity will get healthy food, said Jaclynn Faffer, president/CEO of JFCS, a non-sectarian human service agency serving Collier and southern Lee counties. For many of them, this program is the only way they can get staples like beans, rice, canned vegetables and fruit, and other nonperishables. Seniors can get food assistance elsewhere, such as Harry Chapin Food Bank mobile pantries, pantries at food bank partner agencies in their area, and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called food stamps). But many of the seniors participating in CSFP have few practical alternatives: Many of them are isolated, not physically mobile, ill or lack transportation. Some see a stigma in having to accept food. Carroll Thomas, a longtime Naples senior who lives alone and has no relatives nearby, signed up for the program because she needed the assistance. She said the food she receives is a very big help. Without it, Ms. Thomas said she would likely do what other seniors do, dont eat. What else is there? (I) cant afford to order food in, and cant afford to go anywhere. While gutting the program in the counties where the food bank serves the most CSFP clients, the states new model also calls for the food bank to increase the number of clients receiving CSFP in Glades and Hendry counties from 296 to 1,450 people. If 95 percent of that the increase is not achieved by July, the food bank will face stiff penalties.How CSFP worksTo qualify for CSFP, an applicant must be at least 60 years of age and must earn a gross income at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty line. For example, a two-person household with an annual gross income of $21,172 would qualify. Harry Chapin Food Bank volunteers pack the CSFP food into bags totaling about 30 to 35 pounds. Seniors collect the food at the 40 agencies in the food banks five-county service area. The agencies include churches, community centers and senior housing complexes. The upcoming cut will take 36 agencies off that list.Seniors receive the bags per month that include fruits, vegetables, cheese, milk, peanut b utter/ dry beans, cereal, juice, protein and potatoes/grains. The Harry Chapin Food Bank supplements this government food with fresh produce and other food donated by other sources.

In celebration of the partnership between the research reserve and Florida International University, this years series of lunch lectures has focused on research underway by scientists at the university. For the final program, Jim Fourqurean, director of the FIU Marine Education and Research Initiative and professor at large at the University of Western Australia in Perth, will discuss his research on green sea turtles. Green turtle conservation measures over the last few decades have been successful in increasing the number of green sea turtles hatching and entering the ocean. But the world these turtles will grow up in is very different than the one that existed even a century ago. Mr. Fourqureans team is studying green sea turtles in Bermuda to better understand their connectivity to feeding areas off Floridas coast. Admission is $10 for Friends of Rookery Bay, $15 for others. The learning center is at 300 Tower Road, off Collier Boulevard on the way to Marco Island. For reservations or more information, visit www.rookerybay.org.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateWorlds coolest cityRecently, in Dubai (the largest city in the United Arab Emirates), Dubai Civil Defense started using water jetpacks that lift firefighters off the ground to hover in advantageous positions as they work the hoses. Also, using jet skis, rescuers can avoid traffic altogether by using the citys rivers to arrive at fires (and, if close enough to a waterway, can pump water without hydrants). Even more spectacularly, as early as this summer, Dubai will authorize already tested one-person, Jetsons-type drones for ordinary travel in the city. The Ehang 184 model flies about 30 minutes on an electrical charge, carrying up to 220 pounds at about 60 mph.Latest human rights Convicted murderer Philip Smith (a veteran criminal serving life for killing the father of a boy Smith had been sexually abusing) escaped from prison in New Zealand with the help of a disguise that included a toupee for his bald head before being caught. Prison officials confiscated the toupee, but Smith said a shiny head behind bars made him feel belittled, degraded and humiliated and sued for the right to keep the toupee. (In March, in a rare case in which a litigant succeeds as his own lawyer, Smith prevailed in Aucklands High Court.) In March, star soccer goalkeepr Bruno Fernandes de Souza signed a two-year contract to play for Brazils Boa Esporte club while he awaits the outcome of his appealed conviction for the 2010 murder of his girlfriend. (He had also fed her body to his dogs.) He had been sentenced to 22 years in prison, but was released by a judge after seven, based on the judges exasperation at the years-long delays in appeals in Brazils sluggish legal system.AwesomeThe Cleveland (Ohio) Street Department still had not (at press time) identified the man, but somehow he, dressed as a road worker, had wandered stealthily along Franklin Boulevard during March and removed more than 20 standard 5 mph speed limit signs replacing all with official-looking 5 mph signs that he presumably financed himself. Residents along those two miles of Franklin have long complained, but the city kept rejecting pleas for a lowered limit.Mating strategies The Apenheul primate park in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, is engaged in a four-year experiment, offering female orangutans an iPad loaded with photos of male orangutans now housed at zoos around the world, with the females able to express interest or disinterest (similar to swiping right or left on the human dating app Tinder). Researchers admit results have been mixed, that some males have to be returned home, and once, a female handed the iPad with a potential suitor showing, merely crushed the tablet. (Apps are not quite to the point of offering animals the ability to digitally smell each other.) Peacocks are well known (so they say) to flash their erect, sometimes6-foot-high rack of colorful tail feathers to attract mating opportunities. However, as researchers in Texas recently found, the display might not be important. Body cameras placed on peahens at eye level (to learn how they check out strutting males) revealed that the females gazed mostly at the lowest level of feathers (as if attracted only to certain colors rather than the awesomeness of the towering flourish).Spectacular errors(1) In March, jurors in Norfolk, Va., found Allen Cochran, 49, not guilty of attempted shoplifting, but he was nowhere to be seen when the verdict was announced. Apparently predicting doom (since he had also been charged with fleeing court during a previous case), he once again skipped out. The jury then re-retired to the jury room, found him guilty on the earlier count and sentenced him to the five-year maximum. (Because of time already served, he could have walked away legally if he hadnt walked away illegally.) (2) In March, Ghanian soccer player Mohammed Anas earned a man of the match award (after his two goals led the Free State Stars to a 2-2 draw), but botched the acceptance speech by thanking both his wife and his girlfriend. Reportedly, Anas stumbled for a second until he could correct himself. Im so sorry, he attempted to clarify. My wife! I love you so much from my heart. Leading economic indicatorsIt turns out that Layne Hardins sperm is worth only $1,900 and not the $870,000 a jury had awarded him after finding that former girlfriend Tobie Devall had, without Hardins permission, obtained a vial of it without authorization and inseminated herself to produce her son, now age 6. Initially Hardin tried to gain partial custody of the boy, but Devall continually rebuffed him, provoking the lawsuit (which also named the sperm bank Texas Andrology a defendant) and the challenge in Houstons First Court of Appeal.Competent criminalAn astonished woman unnamed in news reports called police in Coleshill, England, in February to report that a car exactly like her silver Ford Kuga was parked at Melbicks garden center with the very same license plate as hers. Police figured out that a silver Ford Kuga had been stolen nearby in 2016, and to disguise that it was stolen, the thief had looked for an identical, notstolen Ford Kuga and then replicated its license plate, allowing the thief to drive the stolen car without suspicion.

The Toy Box premiered at 8 p.m. Friday, April 7, on ABC. In the Friday, April 14, episode, Naples resident Michelle Lennane Gorman presents her Butterfly B ook, a whimsical, non-electronic book with pages that rotate automatically, to the mentors and judges. Ms. Gormans invention will be shown alongside a ballerina doll, pocket-sized cars, sweet-smelling fruit plushes and a piata in a backpack. She came up with the first doublesided display in 1997 and patented it in 2001. Ms. Gorman says the B utterfly Book prototype seen on The Toy Box was originally sent to clinical psychologist and autism/Asperger syndrome expert Tony Attwood for review almost 10 years ago. If it werent for his endorsement of the book and his extensive knowledge of very early signs and symptoms of autism in infants, she adds, I would have given up years ago. Modern Familys Eric Stonestreet hosts The Toy Box. Each episode features inventors from around the world as they compete for the opportunity to present their toy creations in the season finale. The winner will get the opportunity to bring their creation to market, with marketing, design and manufacturing support from Mattel. The winning toy design will be available for purchase at retail as the season finale airs. Ms. Gorman is having a viewing party for friends and family starting at 7 p.m. Friday, April 14, at Under The Shady Palm Pub, 210 Ninth St. N.

BEHIND THE WHEELRam 1500 the more you pay, the more vehicles you can replaceWhat happened to trucks? It wasnt too long ago that the rear bumper was a premium option. Now, ones like the Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x4 feature a button on the key fob to lower the suspension so that its easy to hop inside. Is this progress? Or are our tough pickups just going after people who need coddling? The answer might be both. Trucks like this one are quite striking. The extra ride height of the 4x4 chassis gives it a beefy first impression. Plus, the Sport model line eliminates brightwork from places like the grille, bumpers and door handles for a sleeker and more aggressive appearance. This one goes a step further with the optional Night Package that blacks out the grille and large 20-inch wheels. It also gets the bold R-A-M letters on the tailgate. It not only reminds everyone that Ram has separated from Dodge as its own brand, but also its a feature only shared with the up-market Limited and off-road Rebel trim levels. Creating a truck that looks like it could eat the streets also can eat a hole in wallets. A Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x4 starts around $41,890. Add in some extra aggressiveness with the Night Package ($395) and a Sport Performance Hood ($775) that borrows its design from the Challenger sports cars. Plus, theres genuine performance features like the Hemi V8 ($1,950), and air-ride suspension ($1,715) that bows to welcome passengers. And those utilizing their pickup for real work might enjoy the factory tonneau cover ($595) and the Ram Box ($1,295) that turns both bed sides into lockable tool boxes (or coolers with a drain if its time to tailgate.) Now its a vehicle thats approaching $50K, even before adding in conveniences like leather seats or parking sensors. But theres a different side to this, too. When a pickup is this loaded, it can pretty much do everything. The aggressive appearance is great for a night on the town, and the 4x4 chassis ensures it can go to the jobsite the next day with ease (and those flashy black wheels show less dirt than mirror alloys.) It even fits in the companys parking garage on the weekday, and can be handy for the weekends. Inside, the Crew Cab is exceptionally roomy. Sure, (Dodge) Rams marketing loves to show how three hard-hat adults can comfortably ride out of the oil fields in the back seat. But the real benefit of this space means the after-school pickup is a breeze. So where the old idea of a truck was the households second vehicle, the new generation has the ability to move up in the family pecking order. If this pickup is going to haul more children than cinderblocks, there will be many who will likely opt for the 5.7liter V8. It might seem counterintuitive that carrying less weight would require the extra 90 more horsepower. But the real reason why it will be popular is the Hemi badging on the side and extra rumble from the dual exhaust. After all, there needs to be maximum machismo redemption if a pickup is going to be used as a minivan. On a more practical side, Rams available air-ride suspension is the true winner for a family style truck. Besides adding versatility, this feature is directly taken from the premium car/crossover playbook for adding comfort to the long journeys.But what about those of us who remember the days when a velour seat and manual sliding rear window were what distinguished an upper-class pickup? The bare-bones work truck is available. Ram, Ford and Chevrolet all have single cab V6 pickups that can be purchased for around $25K if buyers are willing to wait for the best factory incentives. Adjusted for inflation, thats about the same price a base pickup was three decades ago.So the old-school style truck is still out there, but they arent as plentiful as before. Taking the front row at your local dealer now is the 4x4 that can be cross-shopped with a BMW X5. While its unlikely that the Ram 1500 will win over any premium import buyers, it is there to remind you that your boss goes hunting on the weekends.

Older adults, caregivers can help manage the risk of falling CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROLEvery second of every day an adult aged 65 or older falls in the United States. Every 12 seconds, one of these older Americans is admitted to the emergency department for a fall; and every day, 74 of those will die from a fall. More than half of those who fall do not tell their doctors or health-care providers about it. These numbers have contributed to making older adult falls the leading cause of injuries, both fatal and nonfatal, among Americans 65 and older. Aside from causing injuries that can affect a persons overall health and quality of life, falls are also the most costly of injuries incurred by this age group. In 2015, the Medicare costs of falls requiring medical treatment were more than $31 billion, and the average cost of a nonfatal fall was nearly $10,000. Falls arent just a normal part of aging. Older Americans and their caregivers can take steps to prevent them.Speak up. Older adults can talk to their doctor or health-care provider about their risk of falling and what they can do to help prevent falls. They should tell their health-care provider right away if they have fallen, if they are afraid of falling or if they feel unsteady when walking or standing.Activities that strengthen legs and help with balance, such as tai chi, can help prevent falls. These exercises should get more challenging over time to continue increasing strength and balance.Check with health-care providers about recommending an exercise program appropriate for the person.Get an annual physical exam. Some health issues can increase the risk of falling.Have a vision screening once a year and update eyeglasses as needed.Consider having a medication review conducted by a pharmacist or other health-care provider. Healthcare providers can help older adults determine which medications might be stopped, reduced or switched if side effects are putting them at risk for falls. Additionally, ask the health-care provider if taking Vitamin D supplements might help improve nerve, muscle and bone health.Discuss any side effects like feeling dizzy or sleepy.At home, keep floor s clutt er-free. Remove small throw rugs, or use double-sided tape to secure them to the floor.Add grab bars in the bathroom next to and inside the tub and next to the toilet.Have handrails and lights installed on all staircases, and make sure there is adequate lighting throughout the home. With more than 10,000 older Americans turning 65 each day, the number of fall-related injuries and deaths is expected to surge unless preventive measures are taken.

Ferranti, Minister of Music PET TALESPurr therapy BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen their patient received a terminal cancer diagnosis, the staff at the Oregon nursing and rehabilitation facility where he was cared for offered him anything he wanted: cupcakes and ice cream for every meal, a pile of puppies to play with or anything else he could name. All I want is to have a cat on my lap again, he said. Basil to the rescue. The orange-andwhite tabby, one of only 100 or so therapy cats recognized by therapy animal organization Pet Partners, made regular visits to the man for the last four weeks of his life. That was really special to me, says Tina Parkhurst of Beaverton, Oregon, who fostered and then adopted Basil and her brother, Mac, after they were found in a field when they were about two weeks old. Though not as numerous as therapy dogs, therapy cats throughout the country provide people of all ages and health conditions with unconditional love and comfort. Their visits can help improve patients mobility, memory, communication, pain management and self-esteem, or simply make them smile and laugh. Often, people reminisce about previous cats in their lives. Parkhurst was familiar with the concept of therapy cats when she began fostering Basil and Mac. She recognized special qualities in their personalities that made her wonder if they would be suitable for the work. They connected easily with people and had calm natures. Basil seemed a little more fearless than Mac, so Parkhurst began training her first, teaching her to wear a harness and leash and taking her on visits to a big box pet supply store. Eventually, they went through the Pet Partners training program, earning a perfect score in the evaluation. Now Basil and Parkhurst make visits to facilities two or three times a week. Basil gets a bath before every visit, and shes trained to sit on a towel that is placed on a bed or someones lap. To entertain residents, she sits up on her hind legs and gives a high-five. But her best trick is her ability to help people relax. Parkhurst recalls one woman suffering from dementia whose daughter had invited them to visit. Because of her dementia, the woman had become increasingly aggressive and agitated, unable to sleep despite heavy doses of medication. When Basil came to visit, the woman was sitting in a recliner, her daughter at her side. We started to talk, and I asked if she would like to have Basil on her lap, Parkhurst says. She said, That would be nice. I put Basils blanket on her lap, put Basil down and in three minutes this woman who would not sleep unless she was heavily medicated was crashed out like a light. Basil was out like a light, too. Her daughter sat there and quietly cried. She said, My mom hasnt slept like this in weeks and weeks. Because they are people-friendly in a variety of settings, many active or retired show cats make therapy visits, but any cat with a friendly, calm nature can become a therapy cat with the right training. Appropriate handling and socialization in kittenhood, with exposure to many different people, places, sounds and experiences, can help cats develop a therapeutic personality. Taking Basil to visit people brings special rewards, Parkhurst says. One woman told her, I wake up smiling on Sundays now because I know Im going to get to see Basil. Parkhurst adds, To see their faces light up and the love in their eyes when they say something like that, it touches your heart and changes the way you walk through the world.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member THE DIVA DIARIESJust say no to jorts and other fashions that never worked anywayIt all started with a conversation about jorts. Jorts are a form of jean shorts that fall somewhere between Daisy Dukes and clam diggers: right at the very top of the knee, cutting the leg off at the middle. Think Bermuda shorts, only inexplicably denim. But Bermuda shorts are typically a cotton-blend, with a comfortable fit and a bright, festive pattern shorts that one might sport on a hot day in, say, Bermuda. Jorts, however, are thick jean material, more form fitting and make no sense. My friend Caryn stumbled upon a rack full of jorts while shopping at TJ Maxx a few days ago and was shocked that the unflattering short pants were back in style. (Jorts enjoyed a brief popularity in the early s when teenage TV stars with side ponytails and Reebok high-tops wore the stone-washed versions on Saved By The Bell.) I told Caryn she must have been shopping in the juniors section, because there was no way any actual grown woman would pay $40 for a misguided garment that made her look short and stumpy while also widening her butt. But Caryn, whos in her 40s, swears she was in the ladies section. It seems like every spring, fashion designers and retailers take it upon themselves to reintroduce a style that never worked, even when it was in its heyday, and this year is no exception. What sadistic fashion editor decided it was OK to bring back French-cut swimsuits? I dont care how young and slim and tall you are, having the leg opening of your bathing suit cut so high on your body that it reaches a rib just doesnt work on anyone. (These suits gained popularity in the s, which tells you everything you need to know. A decade that was known for enormous shoulder pads and hairstyles sprayed 10 inches high is not a decade we should trust today to make us look pretty.) In Target recently, I came face-to-face with racks of one-piece jumper/pantsuits that kind of resembled the outfits my mom would wear as the hostess at bridge parties at our house back in the 0s. Way back 40-some years ago, they only looked good on Cher and in 2017, they STILL only look good on Cher. What are they doing back in stores especially Target, where Cher has never shopped? Are these styles like ex-boyfriends that we broke up with long ago and are suddenly texting, asking for a second chance? We knew they were bad for us in the first place, but would it hurt to just get together for one little drink? That, ladies, is what dressing rooms are for sort of like just having one glass of wine with your ex to remind you why you broke up in the first place. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

MONEY & INVESTINGFree-falling Valeant Pharmaceutical still cant get itself turned around In 2015, I wrote an article about the fall of a little known drug company named Valeant Pharmaceutical International. This once up-and-coming company was the darling of Wall Street for a brief while as it gobbled up companies using its highflying stock as currency. The stock had traded as high as $250 per share at the time of my article it had plummeted to $75 per share due to reports of fraudulent sales, overpriced drugs and crushing debt burden. I urged investors to use caution even at that depressed stock price as the company attempted to turn itself around. So what has happened to Valeant in the last couple of years? Are there other lessons to be learned by examining this company in further detail? The past year has not been kind to Valeant. Currently the stock trades at $9.50. After I wrote my last article on this company, the stock did jump from $75 to around $110, but since that time it has been steadily falling. And it is not as if Valeant has not tried extremely hard to turn itself around. First, it hired a well-respected and highly qualified CEO, Joseph Papa. Mr. Papa previously was the CEO of the profitable health care company Perrigo. In addition, the company pledged to sell non-core assets in order to cut its debt load and stabilize its income. And finally, Valeant is attempting to grow its revenues through partnerships with companies like Walgreens.Clearly, investors are not convinced that Valeant has turned the corner. The stock is being punished as a result. The most worrisome problem is the companys massive debt. While the company did sell $2.1 billion in assets in January, since then it has been struggling to find buyers for its non-core brands. For example, Valeant recently announced that its Australian iNova unit, which was expected to sell for $1 billion, had bids for only $680 million. If the company cannot find buyers, many fear the company will not be able to service its debt and it may collapse.At the same time, the company is negotiating with its creditors to refinance some its debt in order to push off near term interest payments. And while it has been successful in accomplishing this recently, each refinancing adds a little to the companys interest rate, or increases fees, which makes it just a little harder to pay back the loans down the road. As far as revenue growth goes, unfortunately Valeant has been heading in the wrong direction. In its latest quarterly earnings, the companys branded sales actually fell by 17 percent and even its core Bausch & Lomb units sales fell by 1 percent. Valeant will need to quickly turn these brands around if it wants to regain investor trust. And finally, Valeants main cheerleader, Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management, announced that he was selling his entire holding of Valeant stock. Mr. Ackman lost over $4 billion because of Valeant, but many thought he would hold the stock; he was quoted many times as saying that he believed the company would turn itself around. Clearly even he has given up hope. I think there are a few lessons we can learn looking at Valeants stock over the last year. First, investing in a turnaround story is a very risky play. The risk of these situations often outweighs the potential rewards. I would much rather miss the first 10 percent upside of a stocks upswing than experience the 80 percent downswing of a failed turnaround. I would advise waiting for the first evidence that management is successful, rather than investing in speculation that it will be. Second, Valeant is a warning that getting out from under a significant debt burden is not an easy task for any person or company. Banks and bondholders can be your best friends when things are good, but often form a vicious negative cycle when things turn bad. Difficulty in repayment leads to higher rates and fees, which makes it even harder to repay the debt, which leads to higher rates and fees and so on. Breaking from this cycle is extremely difficult. Lastly, Valeant shows that relying on Wall Street research may not always be the best guide to investing. We all know that almost all analysts were extremely bullish as the company peaked. But very few analysts recommended selling even as the companys problems became public and the price started to free fall. Even today, many top tier investment banks have Valeant rated a neutral. As for me, I wouldnt touch this stock with a 10-foot pole even at a single-digit price until the company has proven that it can repay its debt and stabilize revenues.

She moved back to Southwest Florida in 2007 and for eight years was the digital media manager at Waterman Broadcasting. TEAGUE HILL MEYER DAVIES ON THE MOVEcome together in a partnership; weve found that a team approach to serving clients is much better than an individual approach. He and Mr. Lyon formed FAA in 2006, bringing their individual businesses, Compass Advisory Group and Magnus Capital, together in a one-stop shop. He was a regular investment advisor who managed family wealth and I had a merger and acquisition advisory firm that helped people sell their companies and become liquid, Mr. Cartwright says. Mr. Price, a former vice-mayor of Naples, added his wealth management skills to the mix in 2008. A native of suburban Chicago, Mr. Cartwright has a bachelors degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin and a masters of management in finance and accounting from Northwestern University. College was followed by two years with Arthur Andersen, a holding company and former Big Five accounting firm, in Chicago. Next, Mr. Cartwright dove into entrepreneurship by starting a supply chain consulting company, Benchmark Solutions, which grew to have locations in four Midwest cities. After leaving that company in 1999, he started Byproducts Interactive, an internet marketplace for food and agricultural byproducts, which was victimized by the economic downturn that occurred after 9/11. He and his wife, Amy, visited Naples in 2002, as he considered his next move. A beachfront lunch at Lowdermilk Park helped prompt their decision to move their family, which included three young children, from suburban Chicago to Collier County. After the m ove, Mr. Cart wright became involved in organizing and educating angel investors and facilitating the funding of small businesses to diversify the regions economic development through investment in innovative industries. This led to the creation of Tamiami Angel Funds in 2008. He describes the impact of the Tamiami Angel Funds as one of his major sources of pride, citing the company Taste of Immokalee as a prime example behind that feeling. Taste of Immokalee was launched in 2014 by Immokalee High School students. The company sells hot sauces, spices, salsa and barbecue sauces the students create in stores such as Publix and Winn-Dixie. With mentoring provided by Naples-area business leaders, students from the economically challenged community gain hands-on experience in various aspects of running a business. Tamiami Angel Funds has raised $12,000 from its members for the company, in a partnership with the nonprofit Community Foundation of Collier County. Investors are working to raise a total of $250,000 to enable Taste of Immokalee to bring manufacturing and distribution of its products to Immokalee from Sarasota. The greatest satisfaction comes out of serving people and helping them achieve their dreams and their goals, Mr. Cartwright says. That goes across the board, whether it is serving high net worth families and helping them accomplish their goals of charitable giving or paying grandchildrens tuitions, whether its working with entrepreneurs and angel investors, all the way to the public service and volunteer roles that we play in various organizations. Interview with Tim CartwrightBusiness mentors: My partners. First jobs: Delivering the newspaper and detasseling corn. Business words of wisdom: Operate at the intersection of professional drive and personal humility. Favorite business book: Donald Trumps The Art of the Deal. Two things you look for when hiring: People who are confident but coachable. Any job openings? No. Last time you had to fire someone, and reason? Sorry, thats confidential.CARTWRIGHTFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOTim Cartwright at a Venture Pitch Southwest Florida presentation.
B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMemoir of Family, Seagram, Baseball and Philanthropy (HarperCollins), which will be published May 2 in the U.S. (The book is already out in Canada). People think philanthropy is easy, Mr. Bronfman said. Its not, at least to do it well and effectively. One of the big problems with getting involved with philanthropic work is that theres generally been no career-development process for philanthropists. A lot of people jump into philanthropy figuring the combination of their fat bank account and their know-how from accumulating their fortune are the only ingredients they need to make it work. Not so. Partnerships, management skills, risk assessment, an ability to spot the right projects and accountability from recipients is needed, as well, he said. After Seagram was sold to Vivendi in 2000, Mr. Bronfman doubled down on his philanthropic efforts. Those investments have perhaps been my best, paying dividends to my soul, and I hope they continue to do so for many years after Im gone, he said. His charitable endeavors tapped into both his Canadian and Jewish heritage. Mr. Bronfman and his late wife, Andy, (his current wife, Rita, was Andys good friend) started Heritage Minutes, 60-second TV commercials that taught young Canadians about their history and culture. In Israel, the Bronfmans founded an informal education program to teach children photography and about the environment and projects that bridge the gap between Jews and Arabs. Mr. Bronfman said one of the most fulfilling efforts of his life was Birthright Israel, which sponsored trips to Israel for young people. You go to Israel and see if you like it, he said. If you dont, you go a different way. Since the Israel trips started in 1999, more than 500,000 teens have participated. A lifelong baseball fan, Mr. Bronfman brought professional baseball to Canada, launching the Expos in 1968. He sold the team in 1989 for $110 million. But that was just the economic return, not the personal return, he said. I had also had a success that was all my own, with nothing inherited about it. Mr. Bronfman remains a devoted baseball fan, but his team is the Mets now, as it was before he founded the Expos. I used to go to 66 games a year, now I watch on TV. Besides philanthropy and baseball, his book reflects on his tumultuous personal and professional life. I had a good collaborator (Canadian author and broadcaster Howard Green), Mr. Bronfman said. We met during an interview and the chemistry was good, he said of Mr. Green. They spent two years working on the book. I wrote the book not to enhance my ego, but to indicate to others the possibilities that we all have, whether entrepreneur, inheritor or whatever, he said. It was time to reflect on all these and other conditions and influences that have shaped, and will continue to shape, my life. Books sales have done well in Canada and he hopes for a similar reception in the U.S. Writing his memoirs wasnt painful, Mr. Bronfman said. My sister said you got rid of all your devils (in writing the book), he said. It was therapeutic.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 BUSINESS B7 I trace my roots to 1916, when my founder, who shares my name, established the Aero Products Company. A year later, during World War I, I was building flying boats for the U.S. Navy. That led to more offerings for the military. In the 1920s, I expanded into airmail services and also bought companies such as Sikorsky and Pratt and Whitney. Soon after, antitrust laws made me break up. Im a commercial and military aerospace giant and have built spacecraft for NASA, too. My order backlog features thousands of airplanes, and my market value tops $100 billion. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bonds and Bond Funds 101For long-term money, its hard to beat the growth potential of the stock market. Still, investing in bonds for income can be smart especially when were in or near retirement. Learn more about them first. For starters, know that interest rates, which have long been near record lows, have begun inching up. Thats not good news for bonds, as theres typically an inverse relationship between bond prices and yields. If interest rates rise, the prices of existing bonds drop, and vice versa. Why? Imagine owning a bond yielding 3.5 percent. Then rates rise, and a new bond with the same terms yields 4.0 percent. If you want to sell your now-less-attractive bond, youll have to offer a discount to compensate for the lower yield. This isnt necessarily a problem for investors in individual bonds. As long as you hold the bonds until maturity, the issuer should return your entire principal. If you invest in bond mutual funds, though, as many do, results can vary. In 2013, for example, interest rates moved up and the stock market surged more than 30 percent, but bonds generally lost value. Rising rates in 1994 also led to a bad bond year and a lackluster year for stocks, too. Still, bond funds do have advantages. They offer diversification and the potential for capital appreciation, and they let you invest small amounts in bonds. If, above all, you want to preserve your principal, be wary of bond funds and consider individual bonds instead. Its easy to invest in Treasury securities, including the inflation-indexed I Bond. Many brokerages offer government and other bonds, and you can buy government bonds at treasurydirect.gov, too, commission-free. Consider shortor intermediate-term bonds or bond funds. Long-term bonds can be more volatile, with any extra yield not worth the risk. Understand that the lower the risk, such as with government bonds, the lower the return. The highest rates are offered by risky junk bonds. Learn about alternatives for short-term savings at fool.com/personal-finance/ index.aspx and elsewhere. A Bad GradeMy dumbest mistake was buying a gold coin that was supposedly graded 63. I didnt understand at the time that there are different grades and a lot of ways to be taken advantage of in gold investments. Turns out my investment may really be a 55, making it worth a lot less than I paid for it. I still own it. Ill let the kids inherit it, along with the lesson not to invest in something you dont know enough about. T.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: Gold is a tricky kind of investment. For starters, understand that although many people think of it as a safe financial refuge, especially in uncertain markets, its quite volatile. An ounce recently cost about $1,245, but thats significantly lower than levels a few years ago. Gold closed at nearly $600 per ounce in 1980, and then didnt close above that until 2006.In many years, gold is not your best investment choice. According to economist Jeremy Siegel, between 1802 and 2012, gold averaged an inflation-adjusted annual return of just 0.7 percent, versus 6.6 percent for stocks and 3.6 percent for bonds. Still, if you want some of your overall portfolio in gold, remember that not only can you buy the physical metal, you can also invest in the stock of gold mining and production companies, and in mutual funds and ETFs that are invested in the metal and/or gold companies. Learn more before investing in gold. A Money MouseIf you went to the movies last year, you likely contributed to Disneys (NYSE: DIS) record box-office haul. Four films (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia and Finding Dory) crossed $1 billion in global receipts, with Jungle Book falling just short of that. Each of its major studios Disney Pictures, Marvel, Disney Animation, Lucasfilm and Pixar helped Disney rake in more than $7.5 billion in total box-office receipts.Thats how Disney overcame weakness in its core media business and posted fiscal 2016 earnings up 12 percent over year-ago levels and revenue up 6 percent. It was the sixth straight year that Disneys deep portfolio of global brands has powered record operating results. Still, the company faces challenges, such as falling subscriber counts at ESPN, Disney Channel and its other cable properties, and Disneys ABC has been losing viewers to streaming services. Domestic theme park attendance has also declined in recent quarters. On the other hand, Disney World is getting an Avatar-themed expansion, and Star Wars Land will open at both Disneyland and Disneys Hollywood Studios in 2019. The eighth installment of the Star Wars franchise hits screens in December, and millions have been visiting Chinas new Shanghai Disneyland. Disney offers patient believers a growing dividend that recently yielded 1.4 percent. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Walt Disney.) I trace my roots back to 1997, when my founder launched a Name Your Own Price service. Two years later I went public, ending my first trading day valued at nearly $13 billion. My market value was recently $87 billion. Over the years, Ive tried selling groceries, gas, long-distance phone service, mortgages, cars and used goods. My focus today is on flights, hotels, car rentals, vacation packages and cruises. I bought Booking.com in 2005, KAYAK in 2013 and OpenTable in 2014. I rake in more than $10 billion annually and sport a net profit margin near 20 percent. Who am I? (Answer: The Priceline Group) Dividend DetectiveQHow can I tell whether a company pays a dividend, and how big it is? C.B., Muskegon, MichiganAYou can always just call it and ask start with the Investor Relations department. Its also easy to look it up online or in newspaper stock listings. Instead of the dividend itself, many stock listings include the dividend yield, which is the percentage of the current stock price being paid out annually in dividends. If theres a yield, it means theres a dividend. To figure out the dividend from the yield, multiply the yield by the stock price. Imagine that Whoa Nellie Brake Co. (ticker: HALTT) is trading at $80 per share with a yield of 2 percent (which is 0.02). Multiply 0.02 by 80, and youll get 1.60, meaning that the company is currently paying out $1.60 each year in dividends per share. (Companies often pay dividends quarterly, so this would be $0.40 per quarter.)

Does saving hurt it? R.D., Saratoga, New YorkASpending does boost the economy, as the demand for products and services increases, helping businesses grow and prosper. The economy can also benefit from increased national savings, though, because more money in banks means more money is available to be loaned out to buy homes, cars and educations. Companies can borrow, too, to grow their businesses. So go ahead and save for retirement and other financial goals. Be sure you have three to 12 months worth of living expenses saved in an emergency fund, too. Want more information about stocks?

We wondered about that when we saw Useppa Island featured in Islands Magazine in 1985, while staying at a friends house on Sanibel. Although we never met any neighbors before we bought our Useppa home, it was the slow season, the community was terrific and we cant imagine our lives any other way. After years of living on Useppa, Mary and I continue to invite new and wonderful people to join this welcoming community. The entrance to Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound is the focal point for boaters and vacationers seeking protected cruising and fishing grounds, as well as Florida vacation home opportunities second to none. If you had a Useppa Island Home, you would be 3 miles south of Boca Grande Pass and 15 minutes from Captiva, or Boca Grande with a 22 foot runabout. What sets Useppa apart is the lack of a bridge, cars and traffic, with coveted privacy, island amenities and a private club. If you can drive a boat, take the club launch, or hire a water taxi, no bridge -no problem. In fact, you can make your way to major grocery and drug stores more quickly from Useppa than you can from other areas burdened by 2 lane roads, tourists and seasonal residents. On this 100+ acre sparkling jewel, the Useppa Island Club includes great amenities and recreation, except for golf, as our land is limited. Much has been written about the Club, the island and its history, but not much describes the physical reality of living here. Like most places, Useppa is what our residents make it.

C10 Exquisite Miniatures fill the spotlight at Bonita arts centerBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comLooking like Sherlock Holmes wannabes searching for clues, visitors to the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs hold up magnifying glasses to the paintings in Exquisite Miniatures, the exhibition on display through April 29. The creations of husband-and-wife Wes and Rachelle Siegrist, most of the paintings are slightly bigger than a drivers license, and all of them are definitely much smaller than a breadbox. Some are the size of a large stamp, and there are some circular ones the size of a quarter. Gallery visitors are afforded magnifying glasses to inspect the works. Miniatures should reward you for close inspection, says Mr. Siegrist. Most artwork, you appreciate from across the room and then from three feet away. You generally dont get that close to a painting. But miniatures are different, he adds. They draw you in. You get close and closer, and if theyre done properly youre not disappointed. Not counting the Exquisite Miniatures show, the couple, has exhibited in front of more than 50,000 people. And typically, Mr. Siegrist says, theyll hear two reactions. A person will turn around and say to the artists, I was not expecting this to look this good! Or, they grab a person nearby and say, Look at this! Youre not going to believe all the detail thats in there. At the Bonita exhibition, the general reaction to the exhibit has been a lot of excitement and awe, says Ehren Gerhard, director of art exhibitions for the center. You could blow up any of them to a large-scale format and theyd hold up really well, he says. Its a feat of grandeur or astonishment in the capability of what they can capture in such a small space.

One such person is Artistic Director Mark Danni, who is bringing Legs Diamond an almost totally fictitious musical to TheatreZone for its first fully staged and choreographed production since it closed on Broadway in 1989. The TheatreZone production features 12 performers, including seven actors who comprise the male and female ensembles and the supporting characters of Flo (Becca McCoy), Kiki (Dawn Lebrecht), Madge (Jennifer Crews) and AR Rothstein (Wayne Morton). The Naples production also presents the bold nuance of narration by the character of Peter Allen, SEE LEGS, C4 Its complicated, but this is Larry Alexander starring as singer-songwriter Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz for TheatreZone last year. Mr. Alexander plays Peter Allen (whose Legs Diamond was a colossal Broadway flop in 1988-89) again in TheatreZones version of Legs Diamond coming up April 27-May 3.

Smart Business Books. 376 pages. Hardcover, $24.95.This thoroughly entertaining and highly unusual self-help book is not embarrassed to carry the subtitle Celebrities, Business Tycoons, Rock Stars, Journalists, Humanitarians, Attack Bunnies & More! Thats truth in packaging from a marketing and public relations guru turned business practices columnist. Southwest Florida readers will know Randall Kenneth Jones from his Business Class column in the Naples Daily News and from his community theater stage appearances. The profiles and life lessons (business and otherwise) in this book grow out of that column or, more accurately the relationships built with the people Mr. Jones interviewed. Be prepared. A manic joy is in the air. With so much material from which to choose, Mr. Jones has organized his chapters by putting together delightful commentary on people whose natures or accomplishments just seem to make them good company. Some groupings are obvious: sports figures, professional communicators, entertainers. Others are more intuitive: people with shared or overlapping visions of how to conduct ones self effectively, honestly, and ethi-cally in a complex world. The many resting places the plan provides are welcome, as each vignette bears abundant wisdom that needs to be absorbed. The author simplifies the task in two ways. He begins each major section with material from his own life, especially the lessons of his early years in the Show-Me State. These memories thrum like a tuning fork, its vibrations setting in motion the mini-profiles of his admired interviewees. The second way Mr. Jones focuses a theme is by offering quotations from his subjects that underscore that theme. Some are indeed pithy. From columnist Heloise we learn that Housework is genderless, a bit of wisdom with powerful social implications. From Hall of Fame quarterback Sonny Jurgensen we learn to Make sure everyone on your team is given the chance to play to their strengths. The sports metaphor rings true in lifes many arenas. Carly Fiorina asserts that One woman can change the world because one woman changes the lives of everyone around her. Throughout the book, Mr. Jones treats serious issues like a man on a tightrope hovering between extreme delicacy and laugh-out-loud astonishment. He positions himself as a fellow who cant quite believe he has managed to find himself in the company and with the friendship of the many leaders whose contributions to the cando part of our culture he celebrates. Hes thankful for the situation in which he finds himself. His own successes in writing and other ventures are a result of the kind of risk-taking that many of his subjects successes illustrate. While Show Me applauds the values and discovered truths of people from many walks of life, readers might find the author category particularly interesting. Represented here are Randy Wayne White, Sue Monk Kidd and Janet Evanovich. Show business celebrities include Pat Benatar, Tommy Tune, Shirley Jones, Eddy Mekka and Vanessa Williams. Mr. Jones is alert to honor the role of supportive spouses, especially those who have had life successes independent of their loving relationships. Glenn Campbells wife Kim is a fine example here. Women? No one will accuse Mr. Jones of under-appreciating them. His examples of focused, determined success include Peggy Post, Susan C. Bennet (the voice of Siri), Cynthia Rhodes (Dirty Dancing, Flashdance), Kathy Griffin, Suze Orman, Erin Brockovich and Barbara Corcoran. Because the author is a media person, theres a special place in his heart for those who bring us news, opinion, advice and dependably engaging personalities. Say hello to Hoda Kotb, Willard Scott, Sean Hannity, Candice Olson, Peter Thomas, Bob Orr and Neal Conan. Show Me is a great gift book, the gift being Randall Kenneth Joness honestly uneasy celebration of his own life and those of many others. The fortune cookie inserts help: You always get a second chance to make a first impression (Robert Green Jr., dynamic greeter at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys main information booth) and Every single person you meet knows something you dont know (Ms. Kotb). But they are just a few of the hangers in Mr. Joness spacious closet. While the appeal of this book depends in good part on unabashed name-dropping (just like this review), it has the staying power of a vital friendship rooted in values, choices and accomplishments revealed and respected. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. c a g o c i v philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com JONES y h t e in w th co do ce s i t fi n su o t h o f t h a s u c W app dis c f ro m d

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYplayed by the same actor who portrays Jack Diamond. TheatreZone veteran Larry Alexander takes on the two roles. Interestingly, Mr. Alexander performed the role of Peter Allen in TheatreZones 2016 production of The Boy From Oz, which chronicles Peter Allens life with music written by him, including numbers from the musical Legs Diamond. The Peter Allen connectionHe was married to Liza Minelli for seven years. Thats how some people remember Peter Allen, the flamboyant Australian singer-songwriter who entertained the worlds glitterati for more than two decades until his death in 1992 of AIDS-related illness. Peter Allen, who wrote the music and lyrics for Legs Diamond, also starred as Jack Legs Diamond in its late-1988 to early-1989 Broadway run. Because of its substantial backing, exhaustive previews and cele brity names Harvey Fierstein and Charles Suppon/book; Peter Allen/music and lyrics; Joseph Landon/ screenplay; and Robert Allan Ackerman/ director the musical based on a 1960 Warner Bros. film was expected to be a surefire hit. But everyones a critic, and one critics blistering review in particular that of Frank Rich from The New York Times panned the musical, calling it, among other awful things, a sobering interlude of minimum-security imprisonment Other reviews cited Mr. Alexanders inability to convincingly portray a womanizing gangster. And in a day in which theater newspaper reviews were gospel, the critically scalded Legs Diamond closed after 64 performances. Giving it new legsFollowing a performance of The Boy From Oz last year at TheatreZone, lead actor Mr. Alexander and artistic director Mr. Danni chatted with David Spicer, who owns the rights to the musical and flew in from Australia to see the TheatreZone production. With its Peter Allen connection, the subject of reprising Legs Diamond came up, and thus began Mr. Dannis quest to stage the musical with full production values at TheatreZone. The Boy From Oz was sold out, Mr. Danni says. So I knew we needed to have Larry (Alexander) do the role (of Jim Legs Diamond). As it turns out, Mr. Alexander will portray both Peter Allen, a character thats singular to TheatreZones production of Legs Diamond, and the lead role of Jim Diamond. As Peter Allen, he says, I narrate how the show came to be. The trick for him, the actor adds, is to find some sort of physical switch between the two characters. Jack, for instance, will have a Brooklyn accent, and Peter was from Australia. Its a great acting challenge, he says, and a lot of fun. As TheatreZones artistic director, Mr. Danni took some risk to have this version of Legs Diamond staged. This is a totally original version, he says. We have the rights and permission (to stage this) original piece. Youre not just getting the Legs Diamond story; youre getting Peter Allen taking you on the journey of creating Legs Diamond. Its behind-thescenes insight, with a fantastic score and great costumes and dance. I dont know where else youre going to see anything like this done. Mr. Alexander concurs, saying, Youll not only know the show, youll know all about the creation of it. One could call it a concert version, but this production is anything but music stands with orators and singers performing from behind them. Although the real focus is on the score, Mr. Alexander says, you will see the characters and there will be a band. The seven-piece ensemble includes piano/conductor, drums, reeds and brass instruments. Its fully choreographed and fully staged, with (the character of) Peter Allen narrating the process of writing and putting on a big Broadway show. The TheatreZone production, he says, embraces the humor and wit of Peter Allen providing a lot of historical data.Historically speakingThere was a real Legs Diamond. He was a Depression-era gangster, and defining him as unkind would be of inflammatory great service to his legend. Between killing sprees, the womanizing entertainment-club devotee was involved in show business, though the musicals focus on his aspirations to break into show business is somewhat questionable. Of note, Jim Diamond earned the nickname Legs in one of two ways: He was either a great dancer or he excelled at running away from trouble, including a half-dozen unsuccessful attempts on his life. The real Legs Diamond eventually succumbed to murder. Having returned from a latenight tryst with his mistress, he was lying alone in his boarding-house bed when he was ambushed. This would be perhaps the first time and certainly the last that his legendary Legs would be of no use to him. He was a brutal murderer in his Hotsy Totsy Club, Mr. Alexander says, noting that the club figures prominently in the musical with the shows cast of characters. From Peter (Allen)s point of view, Legs Diamond was a really, really bad guy, a murderer who wound up getting murdered himself. But, he adds, This is a musical comedy version, so (the character is) tough, a gangster, but hes a musical comedy guy, and all he wants to do is be in show business. Mr. Alexander says hes not sure how Peter Allen found an obsession with Legs Diamond, but the score is really beautiful. And the experience he says, is like a really big Carol Burnett sketch. As the shows two leads, he adds, Im trying to make a huge difference between Peter Allen and Jack Diamond Thats the only way Jack can be believable.Two for oneWith almost 20 TheatreZone productions under his belt, Mr. Alexander welcomes another challenge. For me, its not just doing a show, its doing two shows, as Im playing two characters. And Im the second person in theater history to play Jack Diamond, he says. Its a tremendous pleasure, since the shows never been done since it closed on Broadway. And this particular production has never been done before. The musicals Broadway run was an infamous bomb, Mr. Alexander says. Tony Awards were going to big, dark spectacles in the late s, he notes. And Legs Diamond was very expensive to produce. The costumes alone were in the millions of dollars. It should have been a big, old-fashioned show like No No Nanette.

Lutronix Inni The Naples Players promise youll love I Hate HamletThe Naples Players present Paul Rudnicks comedy I Hate Hamlet April 19-May 14 on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre. When his prime-time hit TV show L.A. Medical is canceled, Andrew Rally (Jesse Heindl) reluctantly agrees to star in Hamlet in Central Park. His dreamy but chaste girlfriend, Deirdre (Madeline Leon), and real estate agent Felicia (Mary Anne McKerrow) are thrilled about the gig and the amazing New York City apartment theyve found for him that once belonged to the great John Barrymore (John McKerrow). In addition to having to deal with his short-lived success in L.A., Andrew has a major issue with his once-in-a-lifetime theatrical opportunity: He hates Hamlet. Andrews agent, Lillian Troy (Mary Wallace), a one-time fling of Barrymore, attempts to summon her former paramour by way of her departed mother, who picks up when Lilian reminds her it is after 10 p.m. and the rates are down. The sance is successful and the haughty and hammy Barrymore returns in Shakespearean tights, making a beeline for the closest bottle of champagne. Having led the local troupe Shakespeare in Paradise, Mr. McKerrow has more than a great understanding of the material. As Barrymore, he imparts lessons on life, love and seduction to the discontented young Andrew. The laughs are nonstop as the rakish Barrymore introduces the ambivalent Andrew to the joys of fame, dames and melancholy Danes with some finely orchestrated dueling. Just when we think the ghost of Barrymore has gotten through to Andrew, his crass and calculating L.A. agent Gary Lefkowitz (Paul Polomsky) turns up to offer him a million-dollar TV deal if he drops out of Hamlet. Visiting director D. Terry Williams, professor and longtime chair of the theater department at Western Michigan University, directs The Naples Players production with the good-natured lightness it deserves.

Saturday April 15 10:00 a.m. 2:00 p.m. Icy Dreamz Shaved Ice ARTS COMMENTARYA magical, historical tribute to a few brave women of the 1920sIf you look at Catherine and Tom, youd think he had the riskier job. After all, he walks on girders of buildings several flights up. One misstep, and hes a goner. She simply paints numbers on watch faces. Its the 1920s, and Catherine is excited to join the work force, though her husband tells her that, Works work; thats why its called work. He doesnt understand that she sees it as independence and a way to make some money. Shell earn 8 cents for each watch face she paints more money than she could make elsewhere. Better yet, the harder she works, the more she earns. When Catherine (a highly likeable JamieLynn Bucci) shows up for her first day at the Radium Dial Company, shes shown her workstation and introduced to co-workers. But what her supervisor, Mr. Reed (Mark Vanagas), doesnt tell her is that the radium shes working with will poison her and kill her. Catherine and the other women who apply the radium onto watch numbers so the watches will glow in the dark are urged to continually put their paintbrushes in their mouths, in order to create a finer point and be more precise in their work. Or, as they say, Lip, dip, paint. In These Shining Lives, playwright Melanie Marnich looks at the lives of four real-life women who suffered from radium poisoning and bravely fought the company that employed them. Its well worth rushing to see it before its run at the Sugden Community Theatre closes. The script is an odd mixture of lyricism and triteness. It opens with Catherine introducing the play: This isnt a fairy tale, though it starts like one. Its not a tragedy, though it ends like one. Moments like these are highlights of the play. On the downside, the playwright has characters saying such modern things as, Woulda, coulda, shoulda, and, Have a nice day, although these people are living in the 1920s and s. She also has a character, upon first meeting, comment on how Catherine looks like the actress Louise Brooks with her dark bob though Ms. Brooks didnt make her film debut until a few years later. But still, this play has enough magical moments to make it special. Director Jessica Walck has cast well with giving Ms. Bucci the lead. The audience is on her side from the beginning, and we are horrified when we realize where shes going to work. We know, way before the characters do, that what theyre doing will kill them. We enter into contracts with the companies we work for; we give them our time and hard work, with the expectation that they in turn will treat us fairly, compensate us well and create a safe environment. But the Radium Dial Company doesnt do that. It insists the women are safe and even touts the benefits of radium. It monitors their health, and when the women start developing symptoms, the company prescribes aspirin. If corporations are people, as Mitt Romney once said, then the Radium Dial Company is an abusive husband who continually harms his wife, all the while insisting theres nothing wrong. These Shining Lives is an historical play. Catherine Donohue was a real person who painted radium on watches in Ottawa, Ill., and died of radium poisoning. She is both heroic and strong. Jasmine Vizena as Charlotte, a sassy, outspoken co-worker, provides many of the plays laughs. Shes a take-no-prisoners kind of woman, and her attitude helps liven the play. Catherines two other co-workers are not as well developed, leaving the actors with not much to work with. Katherine Oni plays Frances, the moral one, and Amy Hughes plays Pearl, the silly, giggly one who tells jokes. Its a shame the playwright didnt do more with these characters or the material she had at hand. Mr. Vanagas plays a number of characters, from the company boss, Mr. Reed, to the company doctor who dismisses the womens concerns, to Leonard Grossman, the lawyer who takes up their case when they sue. Hes perfect in each role, bringing a distinct personality to each. Jesse Hughes, the casts other male actor, also plays a variety of roles, including Catherines husband. They dont seem to have much chemistry together. He complains about his wife working late and how he has to do things around the house. Yet when she notes all the times hes come home late from work, he says, My late is different than your late a line that brought laughs and jeers from the women in the audience. Mr. Hughes also plays two doctors: Dr. Rowntree and Dr. Dalitsch. The set by Mike Santos is one of the best The Naples Players have created for their Toybe Studio space. A raised, circular stage is echoed by a circular backdrop, making it look like an open pocket watch. There are minimal props, including factory-like windows suggested by panes against the wall. Craig Walcks lighting is especially important and full of surprises. The sound effects could use more subtlety. For example, when the women go to the beach together, perhaps the sound of waves and seagulls couldve been introduced more gradually. The pacing is also problematic, but this is more the playwrights fault than the directors. These brave, courageous women fought a major company and as a result, caused a major change in industrial safety standards. These Shining Lives pays tribute to them.

At times, however, this feat should assert itself during the bidding of a hand, before the play has even begun. For example, take this case where South wound up in six spades after the sequence shown. West led a diamond, and the slam went down the drain when East took the first two tricks with the A-Q of diamonds. Undeniably, it was bad luck to lose the slam because West found the killing suit to lead and East held the ace and queen. Even so, the fact remains that North was remiss during the bidding when he chose to bid six spades instead of six notrump, which was ice-cold against any lead. North should have reasoned that, if South had the seven spade tricks he was likely to have for his vulnerable four-spade bid, 12 tricks were certain provided the defense did not take the first two diamond tricks. This should have convinced North after using Blackwood and learning that South had only one ace that the slam would be far safer if East was the opening leader instead of West. It might seem odd for a player to prefer six notrump as his final contract when he knows that he and his partner have at least a 10-card trump suit to lean on. But prudence, common sense and the safety factor all dictate that North should be declarer, and that thought should take precedence over everything else.

Its predictable and has the expected touching moments, but the best parts are the unexpected dashes of humor that make it endearing. Rated PG-13.Smurfs: The Lost Village (Voices of Demi Lovato, Joe Manganiello, Rainn Wilson) With evil wizard Gargamel (Mr. Wilson) in hot pursuit, Smurfette (Ms. Lovato), Hefty (Mr. Manganiello) and other Smurfs seek out an ominous lost village in their forest. The animation, action and humor are all average. But the target audience is little kids, and it effectively conveys the message that girls can grow up to be whatever they want to be. Rated PG.T2: Trainspotting (Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonnny Lee Miller) Twenty years after ripping off his mates, Mark (Mr. McGregor) returns to Edinburgh and gets mixed up with the boys once again. Danny Boyles sequel to his 1996 hit isnt the adrenaline rush the original is, but it nonetheless tells a compelling story thats worth a look. Rated R.Beauty and the Beast (Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ian McKellen) In Disneys live-action remake of its animated classic, Belle (Ms. Watson) is trapped in the Beasts (Ms. Stevens) enchanted castle, but is helped by a clock (Mr. McKellen) and candelabra (Ewan McGregor), among other living furniture. It remains a sweet love story at its core, and the visuals are breathtaking. Still, the filmmakers took an animated 84-minute work of perfection and bloated it to a liveaction 129 minutes that feels unnecessary. Rated PG.The Sense of an Ending (Jim Broadbent, Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling) An elderly British man (Mr. Broadbent) has trouble retrieving a diary that is in the possession of the woman (Ms. Rampling) who was his girlfriend 40 years earlier. 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.

YesOut of nowhere, he appears at the cemetery. Thin, frail, terrible mustache. He places flowers on her dead fiances tombstone. As he passes, the melancholy is unmistakable. His name is Adrien. Her name is Anna. Annas fiance was Frantz, and the movie, aptly titled Frantz, is a taut, complex and deep-feeling drama about war, secrets and redemption. Its 1919 in a small German village. The Great War has just ended, and many sons and fathers from this village didnt return. The locals hate the French, whom they blame for murdering their loved ones. So when Adrien (Pierre Niney) first appears to Frantzs father, Hans (Ernst Stotzner), who is a doctor, hes promptly kicked out. But Anna (Paula Beer), who still lives with her wouldhave-been in-laws, sees Adrien at the cemetery and soon strikes up a conversation with him, and then vouches for him to Hans and Frantzs mother (Marie Gruber). They ask Adrien probing questions, but he is reserved and doesnt volunteer information. He tells of his friendship with Frantz (Anton von Lucke) during the war and what Frantz meant to him. Naturally, Adrien is holding back, reticent to share anything offensive, or too much too soon. Like Anna, the audience wonders why Adrien is doing what hes doing. The fact that his true reason and motivation are revealed 50 minutes into the film, leaving another hour for the story to go in a different but worthwhile direction, is a credit to director Francois Ozons (Swimming Pool) ability to provide surprises in what you think is a predictable tale. Mr. Ozon and cinematographer Pascal Marti present the film in striking black and white, with only dashes of color noticeable when Frantz comes alive for the protagonists. Aesthetically, the black and white reflects how we look back on a bygone era, but more than that it forces the viewer to focus on the characters and dialog, which feeds directly into Frantzs strengths. The script by Philippe Piazzo is tight and cool, rarely stopping for sentimentality within the bleakness of its characters lives. The actors bring out the best of what the dialog has to offer, especially Beer, whose Anna is torn between mourning for Frantz, wanting to move on and not knowing what to make of Adrien. Given that we dont know what to make of him either, and Niney plays him so ominously close to the chest, the viewer is kept in a sustained state of wonder thats richly satisfying. Another issue in play is how deepseeded hatred lingers long after the last wartime bullet is fired. At the start, no one in Germany wants to give Adrien a chance, immediately branding him as a bad guy with disregard for his actual intentions. Theyre right to be suspicious, but as we learn, in a different time Frantz and Adrien wouldve been lifelong friends, and Frantzs family, including Anna, wouldve warmly welcomed Adrien into the fold. In effect, war killed these relationships before they began, and because of the enmity that pervades, it could very well deter similar relationships for years. Frantz is a gradually paced, highly effective drama that showcases tremendous acting and writing in the best ways cinema can. See it, or youll be missing out. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Frantz is loosely based on the Ernst Lubitsch lm Broken Lullaby (1932).

SouthernExpressBluegrass.com Crystal-clear treasure from the shelves of a Goodwill scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org COLLECTORS CORNERI recently found something grotesque. But Im not complaining because its beautiful. Yeah, thats a funny combination, but it worked for Frederick Carder. He co-founded the Steuben Glass Works of Corning, N.Y. If Heisey is the Cadillac of American glassware, then Steuben is the RollsRoyce, and its all because of Mr. Carder, who began his career in the 1880s at the English firm of Stevens & Williams. Stevens & Williams glass is otherworldly and was made with layer upon layer of colored glass that must have appeared as pure fantasy to a gas-lit Victorian world. Mr. Carder came to the United States around the turn of the 20th century and founded Steuben, named for the New York county in which it was situated. It was there that Mr. Carder perfected his art, turning out blown-glass confections that continue to whet collectors appetites for more. Mr. Carder loved his Grotesque line, essentially free-form pieces that transition from glorious color around the edges to crystal clear glass near the bottoms or centers. The company turned out vases and bowls, including the one I found, by the dozens through 1932 or so. The pieces in the companys opaque colors, including Iverene, Gold Aurene and Ivory, are exquisite. But sometimes the clarity of a piece of glass tells you all you need to know about its quality, and thats the case with this bowl. At one point, bowls such as this were priced in the $1,000 range. As with most collectibles, prices for Steuben have fallen. Theres a bowl similar to mine priced at $895 on eBay; I probably would price this one at $300-$400. As for Mr. Carder, he oversaw the spinning of fantasies in clear and colored glass at Steuben from 1903 until 1932, when the company reorganized and focused exclusively on clear glass. He stayed on with the company until 1959 and died in 1963 at the age of 100.

Cost: $9.99 The skinny: You never know where youll find treasure. In this instance, it was in the housewares section of the Riviera Beach Goodwill. I couldnt believe this bowl was a piece of Steuben glass until I picked it up. It pings gloriously, thanks to all the minerals used to make the glass. And it was clearly acid-etched Steuben on the bottom, though someone had written its $9.99 price with a felt-tip marker across the hallmark. The mystery to me is how something made more than 80 years ago survived the decades, let alone a trip in the bins to the Goodwill shelves.

BLOOMING SPECIALS A P I L R Comic collectibles still a hit BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELComic collectibles remain popular as long as the comic characters are still seen or heard in comic books, cartoons, radio, TV, movies, plays or reruns. And B.O. Plenty, who was an early figure in the Dick Tracy comic strip that started in 1931, has been dropped and reintroduced many times. He married Dirty Gertie, and these two ugly people had a beautiful daughter, Sparkle Plenty, in 1947. Later, they had a very ugly son whose face was never shown in the strip. The 8-inch toy shown here shuffles across the floor while his hat tips. Q: I just found a metal tin that seems to have held pepper at the White House. How much is a political piece like this worth? A: Sorry to disappoint you, but White House is a brand name used by Wilson Burns & Co. of Baltimore in the 1930s. In those days, all grocery store containers of small amounts of spices were sold in tins. There still are collectors of the tins for their advertising or country-store collections. The best place to find them is at the back of the kitchen cupboard at a house sale. Most tins sell for $15 to $35. Q: I bought a modern copy of a tall flower container with 24 tubes to hold flowers that go to a center section. I bought it to use as a vase and now Im told it was used to grow indoor plants in places like Williamsburg. Can you settle a bet about this for us? A: The name tulipiere is used for tall, many-spouted vases like yours, and for a shorter vase with five spouts that looks like fingers on a hand or just a round vase with spouts facing in all directions. The original tulipieres were made of 17th-century Delft. Queen Mary II of England liked flowers in the palace and ordered the vases to be refilled three times a week with cut flowers, including tulips. Part of the reason was renewed fascination with the flower due to the strange tulipmania of the 1630s, when rare tulip bulbs had become a very expensive status symbol. Like other economic bubbles, it burst in 1637 and caused financial ruin for many. The many-spouted tulipiere also was used to grow flowers indoors, and each spout was made the right size to hold a bulb partially covered with water. So both of you are right. They held either cut flowers or bulbs, now or in the past. Q: My family heirloom is a divided childs feeding plate decorated with scenes of a girl playing with or feeding her toys. The back is marked Thompson. What is its value? A: Your plate was made by CC Thompson Pottery Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio, founded in 1868 and closed in 1938. They made porcelain plates after 1917. The decoration on your plate ANTIQUES

We read Doublewide as part of our PlayLab Festival last year, and it became clear that this was the play we wanted to premiere in our 2016-2017 Season, said Florida Rep Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo. I am delighted that two other regional companies have committed to producing this important new work in the communities they serve. We are honored to be working with the NNPN and the artistic leaders at Vermont Stage and Williamston Theatre in giving this play a wider audience. Florida Rep is the first of the three regional theaters to produce the play. Vermont Stage in Burlington will produce the play in January 2018 and Williamston Theatre in Williamston, Mich., will complete the three-theater Rolling World Premiere with a production in March 2018. National New Play Network is thrilled that this NNPN Rolling World Premiere is happening, said Executive Director Nan Barnett, as it embraces one of the core founding concepts of the Network and specifically this program bringing regional playwrights to audiences across the country. The Roll will introduce this D.C.-based playwright to New England, the Gulf Coast of Florida, and Michigan, adding to the growing legion of Spotswood fans as it strengthens the play. The play is an honest, heartfelt and often humorous story of one familys pursuit of the American Dream. It tells the story of Jim Starkey, a man who just wants to replace the doublewide trailer on his oneacre plot of land with a nice house that he can one day leave to his daughter, Lorelai. But when a highway expansion project and a freak hunting accident shatter his dreams, Jim must decide how far he can be pushed and Lorelai is left to build her own future. Doublewide features Florida Rep ensemble members Rachel Burttram and Carrie Lund, Miami actor Gregg Weiner, former Florida Rep intern Dillion Everett, and Isabella Cintron, a junior at Cypress Lake High School Center for the Arts. Maureen Heffernan directs, and is joined by ensemble set designer Ray Recht, ensemble lighting designer Jim Hunter, costume designer Alex Vazquez, sound designer John Kiselica and ensemble stage manager Janine Wochna.

Ollie Y., via emailA: Nikki has been hard at work, forming quite a relationship with the Hallmark Channel. Next up for her is Hallmarks The Perfect Catch, which premieres at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 22. She stars as Jessica Parker, a diner owner and single mom to an 8-year-old son. When her former high-school boyfriend, superstar baseball player Chase Tanner (played by Andrew Walker), returns to town, Jessica finds the inspiration to reinvent her struggling restaurant and revisits the past to find something even better for the future. Nikki could relate to Jessica, telling me: Ive been in this business for 30 years, and there have been several times in my career where I kind of lost everything and had to start all over. Every single time you have to start over, it gets harder and harder to take those risks because your heart has been broken and youve been disappointed so many times. I really related to the dreamer in Jessica; her dreams never really came into fruition, and she takes that one last risk to make everything happen. I feel like I did that in my own career and in my own way. Its never too late to go for what you want in life. Q : I was so excited to read in your column about the Will and Grace revival. Do you have any scoop on that yet? Eric P., Lancaster, Penn.A: At this years National Alliance for Musical Theatre spring conference in Los Angeles, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt was the keynote speaker and brought along Sean Hayes as his special guest. Regarding Will and Grace, they talked about that hilarious 10-minute campaign video that Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally made in support of Hillary Clinton, and how it paved the way for the show to come back. From the little bit he revealed, the show will be much like it was before (same apartment, no new spouses, etc.). Look for a 10-episode ninth season to air during the 2017-18 TV season. Q: Please tell me the rumor I heard about Trading Spaces returning is for real. Layla F., via emailA: TLC is indeed reviving the Emmynominated home-renovation series, although the cast and premiere date have not been announced.

Offer expires 6/30/17.Bostons live show encompasses 40 years, half a dozen songs from Boston, the first album BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentForty-plus years ago, Tom Scholz saw his life and career path get turned upside down in the best way when he got a record deal, released his first album in 1976 as the musical genius behind the band Boston and watched that album turn the group into instant superstars. The band plays Germain arena at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 15. I was an engineer working full time (at Polaroid) and I saw what my sort of career path and my life was going to shape up to be, and I was perfectly happy with it, Scholz recalled in a phone interview. Boston was a pipe dream ... even after I got the record deal, I went back to work at Polaroid. Scholz had good reason to keep his expectations in check. For five-plus years he had been making demos of his songs, shopping them to record companies, radio stations and other music business contacts and getting nothing but rejections. Finally, he decided to take one last run at making a new demo, and if it didnt get him a record deal, he would do the responsible thing as a husband approaching his 30th birthday: sell his studio equipment and continue his career at Polaroid. But he got interest from three record labels with that final demo and a deal from Epic Records. The guitarist/keyboardist is still going strong, touring and recording with the latest Boston lineup, which includes Gary Pihl (guitar), Tommy DeCarlo (vocals/ keys), Tracy Ferrie (bass), Beth Cohen (keys/guitar) and either Jeff Neal or Curly Smith on drums. Several songs from that debut album remain cornerstones in a live set that encompasses 40 years of Boston as a band a career that has seen the group sell 75 million copies of its six studio albums, including 17 million copies of the first album, one of the best selling debut records in history. Scholz aims to properly represent Bostons career in the live set, but keeps the flow of the set as a top objective. My most important goal is to provide our audience with an experience that will both excite and delight them, be the most fun possible for that evening, Scholz said. You have to pace the set in a way that makes sense with the energy level that you want from the audience, and let them calm down and be thoughtful or insightful at certain spots and bring them back. That kind of thing has to be done.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYTheres a lot of disbelief: Whoa, no way. People shaking their heads saying, I cant believe it. Questions about how the paintings were made. The works dont look the way you might expect a watercolor would, with washes and transparency. These look real, says Mr. Gerhard. They have a real physicality to them. For such small paintings, they look very solid. Its something that holds up really well. The Siegrists specialize in wildlife imagery, but the exhibit also contains still lifes, landscapes and cityscapes. One even shows a person looking at paintings in a museum. Landscapes vary from sequoias in California to the Smokey Mountains, which the artists see everyday from the foothills where they live, in Townsend, Tenn.How it startedThe Siegrists stumbled upon the world of miniature art back in the late 1990s, while living in Okeechobee and working as conventional-scale artists. They were looking to expand their business, but they wanted to be able to ship more of their paintings instead of drive them around from art festival to art festival. So they started thinking small.But small to them meant paintings 9-by12 inches, or perhaps 16-by-20 inches. By serendipity, they received an application to the Miniature Art Society of Florida. Initially looking over the rules and guidelines, we thought they were so stringent, that in our minds, we said it was ridiculous, Mr. Siegrist says. They tossed the application to the side, but didnt throw it away. A week or so later, I had some time on my hands and decided I was going to do one of those tiny little paintings, he says. Wed been working in that size, but not in the scale, and not in that refined technique. We had been doing songbirds and flowers and butter flies and bees, but we were painting them life-sized or larger. He learned that miniature art has three components: Theyre small sized, theyre on a small scale and they have a refined technique. The scale for images in a miniature in the U.S. is typically one-sixth of life-size or less. Its easier to paint an elephant, harder to do a hummingbird, he explains, adding, they call them guidelines, not rules, so theres some flexibility in all this. The refined technique means a meticulous attention to detail. Or, as Mr. Siegrist puts it, You dont want people to be disappointed when they pick up a magnifying glass to look. His first miniature painting was of a burrowing owl that lived in their side yard. His wifes reaction upon seeing it was, Thats just so cute! The next morning, she tried her hand at miniature painting. She did a portrait of her brother, then one of her grandfather. Initially, the couple didnt use magnifying glasses while painting. We were young enough that we could see, he jokes, noting that he was in his 30s and Rachelle in her 20s. As we got older, we started wearing reading glasses and picking up magnifying glasses (while doing our paintings), he says. Mr. Siegrist is 51, his wife is 46. The two have been married for 27 years, and dated for one. Their friends call them the Siamese twins, because they do everything together and share the same hobbies and interests. In our 28 years, the longest weve been apart is 10 hours, when I was in a board meeting with the Society of Animal Artists, he says. They paint in their 10-by-10 studio, sitting 18 inches apart at the same table (one they built). They each usually work on their own painting, though on occasion they work together on the same one. Most of their work is on watercolor board, but some are on ivorine, a synthetic ivory developed in the 1890s.Early historyHistorically, miniature art came from the portrait tradition, before it was surplanted by photography, Mr. Siegrist says, explaining that women would wear lockets with images of loved ones while gentlemen carried miniatures in their pockets or wore them as a watch locket. They were made to be held very close and intimately examined, he says. Generally, anywhere today where theres a need for photographs, that wouldve been a miniature painting, he says, calling it a lucrative, ubiquitous business. Some of the first artists to travel to America in the 1600s were miniature artists, he says. In the Revolutionary War, they carried miniature portraits, or portrait miniatures the two terms were used interchangeably. By the time of the Civil War, people carryied photographs of loved ones. Photography decimated what had been an extremely lucrative art form, and artists had to adapt to survive. Many began working in photography studios where they colored and tinted the photographs. They became upset, however, when people began calling the colored photographs miniatures. They were painted-over photographs, Mr. Siegrist says. So the artists founded the very first miniature societies, to define what was a miniature versus a painted-over photograph. The first society was founded in England in 1896, he says; in 1899, the first society was formed in the U.S. Rachelle and I are two living proponents and living members of those societies trying to carry on those traditions, he says. Its like working jigsaw puzzles. You zone into it, and you become part of that tiny little world. The couple belong to the Miniature Artists of America; the Miniature Art Society of Florida; the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C.; the Cider Painters of America; and the Hilliard Society of England. And they are the authors of the worlds first standard definition of miniature art adopted by the Association of Miniaturist Artists.Steady and patientThe key to creating miniature paintings is having patience, Mr. Siegrist says. And secondly, a steady hand. If weve had too much caffeine, (we cant paint), he says. Your hand has to be rock solid. When you start some paintings, you know its going to take a long time. We want viewers to be impressed. We want the painting to look like it took forever. His wife tends to be more patient and more meticulous, he says. Their brushes hold minute amounts of paint. The biggest can hold enough paint to last for a few minutes at a time without reloading. Its almost like a needle, Mr. Siegrist says. The tiniest of them has maybe a dozen hairs on them. If you hold a brush out in front of you, you cant see the end of the brush on the tiniest one, he says. Sometimes, if were at a show, we tease and tell kids we paint with gnat eyelashes.

For example, in the last few years the Bordeaux region in France has experienced warmer-thanusual summers. The result: excellent vintages, because of the increase in sunlight. According to a recent article by Benjamin Plackett in USA Today, winemakers in the region are predicting that the 2015 vintage will be historic, and that the wines will be able to stay in the cellar, gaining quality, for up to 30 years. I wont be buying any unless I want to leave them to my grandchildren. In Bordeaux, as well as in other winegrowing regions, quality has been on the rise because growing seasons have become progressively warmer, yielding riper grapes with higher concentrations of sugar and other critical flavor and structural components. Also, the increase in temperatures allows for an earlier harvest, often in September instead of October. Whats the difference? It starts raining in October, and the last thing growers want is rain during harvest: the grapes take up the water, diluting the strength and quality of the juice, and making the wine weaker and less palatable. Picking in drier September if the grapes are ripe enough avoids that serious problem. Agencies that measure this sort of thing report that average temperatures in France have risen by a bit more than half a degree per decade since 1960. That means summers are now about 2.5 degrees warmer than they used to be. It doesnt sound like a lot, but its a big deal when youre a grape. Placketts article reports that many French winemakers are convinced warmer summers have been beneficial to the harvests. Beatrice Laurensan from Chteau la Gaffilire is quoted as saying The term bad vintage is gone. The news, however, is not all good. Looking to the future, continued rising temperatures and less rainfall mean that good vintages may well become less frequent. Frances southerly wine regions, which are closer to the Mediterranean, are already reporting water stress due to lack of rain. Studies during the last few years by the National Academy of Sciences indicate that rising temperatures will force winemakers to make some adjustments in their techniques, even forcing them to move vineyards to higher ground, where temperatures are cooler. And the correlation between higher heat and lower rainfall doesnt hold true everywhere. While this phenomenon might be beneficial (at least in the short term) in Bordeaux and Burgundy, it could easily have the opposite effect in California. The recent enormous flooding in that states winegrowing regions may well be just the beginning. As with most global trends, only time will tell. For now, however, the Bordelais, Burgundians, and their compatriots in Champagne and the Rhne are enjoying all that summer sunshine. This weeks delights and discoveries include: Les Dauphins Ctes du Rhne Reserve NV ($13) Ruby red and translucent, with a nose of pomegranate and some green undertones. This is a Beaujolais style wine very soft, fruity and juicy with virtually no tannins, and a pleasant finish. A great value. WW 87-88. Chateau Rollan De By Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2011 ($25) Dark purple with aromas and flavors of barbecue smoke, black earth, barnyard and leather with fruit notes breaking through on the midpalate and finish. Mostly Merlot, aged 18 months in new oak. WW 88-89. Bellevue de Dayac Margaux 2012 ($60) A nose of vanilla and deeply concentrated fruit is the gateway to old world flavors of smoke, cedar, blackberry and black cherry. The tannins are soft and round for such a young Bordeaux. This wine can be sipped and enjoyed on its own. My tasting panel loved it. WW 93. Chateau Fonbadet Pauillac Cru Bourgeois 2012 ($40) Very approachable for a young wine, with black earth, deep dark fruits, and smoke overtones. Quite pleasing. WW 90.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: When I was in Napa last summer, I saw people in the vineyards cutting bunches of grapes off the vines and dropping them on the ground. Why would growers waste the grapes like that? Ron S., Port CharlotteA: Winegrowers drop fruit to increase the intensity of flavor in the remaining grapes on the vine. Too many bunches result in diluted, weak flavors. The fewer the bunches, the more intense the flavors in those that are left. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

COLORADO RACK OF LAMB Roasted Rosemary Rack in a Cabernet Demi Glaze, Cut into Lollipops, Served over Goat Cheese Whipped Potatoes and Asparagus Spears. $45 BAKED HAM With Honey Mustard Glaze, Served with Sweet Potato Gratin and Fresh Spring Vegetable Medley. $28 WE WILL BE ALSO SERVING OUR REGULAR DINNER MENU. CUISINE9 Thai-Sushi offers twice the Asian cuisineBecause Im always on the hunt for new restaurants, its not often that one opens without so much as a blip on my radar especially one serving Thai food, one of my favorite cuisines. But somehow 9 ThaiSushi in Bonita Springs did just that sometime last summer, judging by reviews posted online that finally clued me. We experienced a touch of dj vu walking into 9 Thai-Sushi. The spare dcor and vaguely Asian paneling struck a chord. Isnt this where Thai Star operated before moving to south Fort Myers? Sure enough. With such a hazy long-term memory, I cant say whether the interior has been changed much since its last incarnation. But its a pleasant space, with the wooden flooring and paneling adding warmth to the long, narrow room. Classical piano music was playing softly in the background as our ever-smiling waiter stealthily served the few tables that were occupied. Eight varieties of sak are offered, and my companion chose a small serving of the cold house brand ($5.95). It was elegantly presented on a bed of crushed ice with a panel of twigs providing an artistic backdrop. The wine list is strictly no-name varietals, but the beer list includes five Asian brews as well as other imports and domestic bottles. I enjoyed a crisp, cold Singha ($4.95), a lager available at most Thai restaurants. The sushi list includes a lot of the standard rolls. I guess I can understand wanting to offer patrons more than one cuisine, but there are so many reliable sushi outlets these days that Im not convinced the panAsian approach is truly beneficial. Why not focus on perfecting the pad Thai and the curries? We ordered one roll that caught our eye as an appetizer the spicy blue crab roll ($12.95) mainly because most sushi restaurants use imitation krab rather than the real thing, which is abundantly available locally. There was no bait and switch here we could taste the mild, sweet crab tucked into the roll along with creamy avocado and crunchy cucumber. The exterior was coated with bright orange masago and drizzled with spicy mayo. Other sushi restaurants would do well to copy this roll. The shrimp cakes ($10.95), on the other hand, could use some improvement. The four patties made from ground shrimp would have tasted so much more interesting with some seasoning perhaps fresh ginger or minced scallions or a splash of soy sauce? Despite an enjoyable golden crust, the fried cakes tasted bland and sorely needed the sweet chili sauce provided as a condiment. Our server promptly cleared away dishes and offered drink refills. Oddly, he did not suggest dessert later even though the menu features a half-dozen selections. Were we so gluttonous in devouring our entrees that he couldnt conceive of us ordering something sweet to finish? Should you be offered dessert, the choices include Thai doughnuts, fried ice cream and baked taro custard. Mango sticky rice is available in season. In addition to the usual curries, stir-fries and noodle dishes, 9 Thai-Sushi offers specials such as tamarind duck, flounder with black garlic sauce and whole snapper with chili sauce. From the Thai noodle dishes, we chose pad kee mao, also known as drunken noodles ($17.95), with shrimp. The shellfish were jumbo sized, tender and plentiful we counted eight shrimp. The broad rice noodles were slick with mahogany-hued sauce tasting of soy, garlic and fish sauce, and tossed with bits of egg, onion, bamboo shoots, onion slivers and fresh basil leaves. All in all, a satisfying dish. No less plentiful was the lush green curry ($14.95), which I ordered with chicken. The dish had a good amount of perfectly cooked chicken breast, mingling with crisp green beans and julienned bamboo shoots and bell peppers. The only problem with this dish was the sauce, which was out of balance: too much coconut milk, not enough curry paste. The sauce was so sweet and milky that it washed out the classic complex curry flavor profile, which usually blends notes of lemongrass, chili, lime leaves, coriander and other ingredients. This brings me back to the point I raised earlier about restaurants trying to be all things to all people and in the process falling short of expectations here and there. If 9 Thai-Sushi focused more on one or the other, the overall quality might score higher. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com 9 Thai-Sushi>> Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday; noon to 2:30 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $5.95-$12.95; entrees, $12.95-$18.95 >> Beverages: Beer, wine, sake >> Specialties of the house: Thai dishes and sushi >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Plaza lot >> Website: www.9thai-sushi.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 26251 S.

6 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Kalea Bays amenities popularTower 2 released for saleIf the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet caf, a gifts and sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. 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, stated Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated November completion of the first residential tower, which is nearly 90 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2 earlier this year, said Lodge. As of early April, the number of residences already reserved in our second tower exceeds the $40 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. 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, Lodge 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 Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic Gulf views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse (in foreground) will be completed around November, the same time as the communitys first tower (in background). The Bistro is the ideal place for Kalea Bay residents to enjoy a snack. Kalea Bays clubhouse has a lounge that opens out to the adults-only pool. The fitness center features state-of-the-art equipment. Left: Due to the approaching sellout of Tower 1, Kalea Bay released its second tower earlier this year.

18 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYONE Condominium reports 40% sold since January 2017 launchIn just under 3 months since the launch of sales at ONE, the new 18-story waterfront condominium to be built in the Historic Fort Myers River District, 40% of the residences have been reserved. Designed as an exclusive urban enclave to rise on the bank of the scenic Caloosahatchee River, ONE will feature just 28 luxurious homes priced from the high $500,000s to over $2.7 million. The sales success has been an affirmation of our belief in the quality of our product and the strength of our location in the history-rich Fort Myers River District where a variety of arts, entertainment, shopping and dining options are plentiful, says ONE Director of Sales and Marketing Barbara Bengochea-Perez. The location is like no other. In addition to the impressive roster of resort-style building amenities afforded our residents, there are five square miles of additional amenities just a nice stroll or trolley ride away from ONE, she adds. We are extremely pleased with the response ONE has received in such a short period of time since we launched sales, says developer JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero. Caballero also reports that the prices at ONE will soon be increasing at least 8% to meet the skyrocketing costs of materials in a booming local construction market. For that reason, I would urge any interested buyers to take advantage of the pre-construction prices now. Designed by world-renowned architects Behar Font & Partners with interiors inspired by Adriana Hoyos Design Studio, ONE will be located at 2583 First Street. Estimated delivery is scheduled for the last quarter of 2018. The elegant tower will feature two-and three-bedroom residences ranging from 1,624 to 3,900 square feet, as well as two penthouses, one of which is already reserved. Luxurious features at ONE include private entrance elevators, porcelain flooring, natural gas ranges, fiveburner cooktop, double oven, quartz countertops in chef-inspired kitchens, and floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive balconies, and large walkin wardrobes. Smart technology, assigned covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access will also be included. In addition to all of the enviable unit features, ONE will provide indulgent building amenities including: a heated, cascading, infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; a serene, landscaped riverfront promenade; a fitness room with water views; an elegant lobby; an owners lounge with bar; pet grooming salon; concierge services; high-speed internet and Wi-Fi in all public areas. ONEs prime location in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, puts residents in a vibrant neighborhood with over 65 cafes, bars and restaurants. The streets of the pedestrian and pet-friendly downtown are lined with eclectic boutiques and art galleries, historic landmarks and architecture, museums, and even a professional theater.

20 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEngaging lifestyle continues to hold appeal for homebuyers at Talis ParkAnchored by the award-winning Vyne House clubhouse and the glittering lakes and emeraldtoned Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways of one of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf courses in the world, Talis Park continues to be acknowledged for its unparalleled amenities, luxurious single-family residences, and the engaging lifestyle enjoyed by a youthful group of residents who enjoy spending time and creating memories together. The array of amenities Kitson & Partners has presented at Talis Park ensures residents can enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle while connecting with one another on a personal level. A relatively new community, Talis Park is a place where new residents receive a warm welcome and are encouraged to join their neighbors in a variety of community gatherings and events. Talis Park has been named recipient of more than 20 industry awards, including being named Community of the Year by both the Collier and Lee Building Industry Associations, as well as awards for Best Landscape Design, Best Clubhouse Exterior, Best Clubhouse Interior Design, Best Sales Center, and Best Website. The communitys Vyne House Clubhouse received First Place and Best of Show honors in the New Construction/ Private Club category in Golf Inc.s 2016 Clubhouse of the Year competition. The awards reflect Kitsons commitment to creating a different, better way of living at Talis Park that eschews the traditional country club model. Vyne House is the epicenter of life at Talis Park and includes a total of 32,052 square feet under air and 25,065 square feet of outdoor space. The upper level includes formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, Fionas Market Caf, covered outdoor terraces, a multi-purpose room, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, a Wine Room/Board Room, and the Esprit Spa. The lower level hosts the golf pro shop as well as mens and ladies locker rooms. A resortstyle pool with a massive pool deck and cabanas is included, as well as a rotunda featuring a two-sided fireplace and overlooks the 18th green. Situated directly in front of Vyne House, the Great Lawn is a green space that serves as the backdrop for community events or impromptu gatherings by residents. Talis Park presents a spectacular tableau. An exquisite boulevard winds its way through the community and offers preserve, water, and golf course views. Acknowledged for its physical beauty and playability, Talis Park offers one of the nations premier golf experiences. The course is consistently ranked among the top twenty golf courses in Florida and was ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses. Golf at Talis Park is, above all else, about the courses Sea Dwarf Paspalum turf. The course includes 133 acres of manicured turf. Everything, the tees, fairways, roughs and greens, is 100% Paspalum mowed to different heights. The course is challenging yet extremely playable thanks to the Paspalum turf, wide fairways and a layout that provides left and right escape routes on second and third shots. The turf allows the ball to sit on top of the grass rather than down in it even in the rough. Average golfers can enjoy a round that is more about shot execution than coping with less desirable lies they cannot control. Situated at the south end of the community and adjacent to the Corsica single-family and coach home and Viansa terrace home neighborhoods, Talis Parks approximately three-acre Sports Complex features six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts with directionally focused lighting and pavilions for resting between matches, a tennis pro shop and clubhouse with restrooms and a beverage center, four bocce ball courts, a fifty-foot two-lane lap pool, and landscaped areas.

Kitson & Partners has further enhanced the array of amenities it has designed and constructed to suit Talis Parks engaging lifestyle. The North Naples communitys Casa Cortese that offers an outdoor lounge experience adjacent to the Talis Park Golf Clubs pristine driving range has been transformed into a sports center complete with a pool table, shuffle board, darts, and a high-tech golf simulator that will be used for both indoor instruction and indoor practice.

Any and all of these words describe the work of Pacifica Interior Designs Lou Shafran. From coast to coast she is sought after to create beautiful interiors for the most discerning clients. Luxe Livings Michael Korb caught up with her to ask about her craft. Q: Was there a specific moment when you knew you wanted to be a designer? A: Interestingly enough, I probably knew I was interested in design in a general sense when I made my first trip to Europe with my family. Throughout the trip we saw exquisite details and stunning architecture, wonderful museums, beautiful landscapes. Even the carving on an old door was exciting to see. My interest in design was becoming more evident in my high school and college years: always wanting to be different, dress different and look different, with my own style that was simple and serene and with a European flair. I loved to find new bookstores and look for magazines, digesting different architectural styles SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 of Pacifica Interior Design delivers timeless style with glamorous details Lou ShafranTAYLOR ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOThis parlor is furnished wtih a comfy white sofa, accent chairs and antiqued iron and glass cocktail table.

4 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q&AFrom page 2both modern and traditional. Living in Los Angeles afforded me the opportunity to see varying styles of design. I used those styles to build my future. Q: Are there elements to all of your designs that you feel are important in order for you to be satisfied with your project? A: I am a fan of simplicity. Good design is timeless. I really encourage clients not to over-complicate design. Today, we are inundated with decorating ideas from books, magazines and the internet. But this myriad of ideas do not all belong in one room or even in one home. Overuse of color, pattern and fabric can be discordant. Balancing shapes and textures with classics keeps the eye interested. My goal is for everyone to feel at home and at ease in the spaces we create. That said, I love eclectic style meaning the pairing of different styles from different periods. These types of combinations do need to be artfully managed, and even great talents do better with years of practice. Q: Whats your background? Where did you learn your craft? A: My first job after graduating UCLA, where I majored in political science, was an interior design project. I had intended to make my parents happy and attend law school, but that first interior design project reaffirmed my love of art and design, and so it was Bye, bye law and Welcome to the world of design. The gods were in my favor when I teamed up with some of the nations top designers at Pacifica Design Center Showroom to participate in the design of award-winning, highend commercial and residential projects in Beverly Hills, West Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Newport Beach. Learning how to design furniture and then have it made has always given me and my clients the option to create something that is one-of-a-kind, or even just something that is of the proper scale and proportion. Now, 30 years later, I still feel the excitement of designing smart, stylish residences that give my clients interiors they never dreamed of. Q: Can you walk me through your process? What are the steps you go through in order to feel you understand exactly what the client is looking for? A: Guiding a client through the process, whether the project is large or small, is the most important thing. Every client is unique, and thats the challenge. I always know that it is important to evaluate the clients needs, desires and budget, and most importantly always be honest with your client as to your thoughts. Our ability to work in a large spectrum of styles and colors helps put them at ease and does not bind them to one style only. When a project involves the development of a new home, its best to work with the architect and contractors from the very beginning, so that everyone is cognizant of the process and what is expected as the end result. Q: What emerging trends are you excited about? A: Even though I am not a fan of trendy design, I do appreciate todays movement toward cleaner, airy spaces that can be transformative and evolve over time. Departure from dark colors, heavy fabrics and trims gives designers the opportunity to focus on texture and style. Im loving whites and neutrals, grays and blues. The new trends allow us to skillfully create a timeless look thats artfully balanced. Of course, good design does not follow trends. However, using new ideas that positively affect design is always a good idea.

BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIts a story as old as time. Northern couple buys dated Tuscan-styled Gulffront condo and calls talented interior designer to save the day. And just in the nick of time. It was heavily ornamented with a lot of orange and brown and dark wood with marble floors, says Design Wests Kimberly Bright. It had a formal dining room separate from the kitchen, which created a very small kitchen. At 2,200 square feet, the three-bedroom, three-bath condo could certainly benefit from a few fewer walls. Luckily, the new owners didnt want the formal dining room, so Ms. Bright made a more casual dine-in kitchen thats bigger and opens onto a smaller dining area. They definitely wanted to lighten up the space, the designer says of the homeowners. They had never really done much renovation in the past, so they were very trusting of us and let us take the lead. Their only (instruction) was that they wanted really clean lines and not a lot of goopy, tchotchke-type things. So by removing that wall in the kitchen, it allowed a great deal more light to flow from the east side of the condo right through to the Gulf side. The expanded space accommodates a beautiful kitchen island and peninsula surfaced by a silver-flecked quartz that flows over the side and screams luxury. Everyone who has come into the unit has commented on how beautiful that quartz is, Ms. Bright says. I love that waterfall edge. If you asked me what one of my favorite things would be, thats it. Its a really nice product. Paired with wide-plank European white oak flooring run on a diagonal throughout, the entire space feels impressively larger, brighter and much more current.

Meanwhile, in the living room, Ms. Bright used Wood-Mode paneling for the entertainment wall and added cantilevered shadowbox shelving backlit with a wave wall to display decorative accents. The dining area features a wave wall that ties everything together nicely. In the master bedroom, space restrictions made brightening the space a must. The bed that was in there before was a dark wood with red bedding, and there was a huge armoire that really weighed down the room, she says. An elegant new king-sized bed outfitted with lovely, light linens creates a classic, clean and restful vibe. Mirrors over the nightstands reflect the light more and make the room feel bigger. They kind of act like pseudo-windows, Ms. Bright says about the mirrors, adding, The owners really like that. I think the only thing we didnt pick out in that (room) was the computer. In addition, the master bathroom was completely gutted. The old tub had a raised surface decking around it, so you had to climb into it. The new freestanding tub is modern and clean and makes a statement when silhouetted by walls of Carrera marble and outfitted by polished chrome fixtures.

12 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentHaving built their previous home and lived in it for 12 years, Joy and Dustin Rautenkranz realized there were many things theyd do differently if they ever built another house. Things that arent particularly glamorous, says Mrs. Rautenkranz. Closets, kitchen storage and functionality. You know, the things you need to live. We have three children and wanted it to be functional for them and for us. When they found a piece of property they liked in Coquina Sands, they called Tommy Houchin of Houchin Construction, who had built Joys brothers home as well as the Tamiami Ford and Tamiami Hyundai car dealerships, which are owned by her family. Then they picked Tony Boyatt of Boyatt Design to design the home. We knew we wanted a home that didnt look like it was built in 2016, Mrs. Rautenkranz says. We wanted to build something that you couldnt tell if it was built 10 years ago and that that, in 20 years, will still look timeless. They had initially been leaning toward the West Indies style that has become so popular, but they were already feeling it was becoming dated. So what they decided on was clean Old Florida on the outside and transitional on the inside. Its a bigger single-story house, which Ive always liked, Mr. Houchin says. The footprint of the house gets to spread out, which I think is much more interesting and also more unique than the narrow, tall designs of so many houses these days. And it took up virtually every square inch of that lot. Made with family and function in mind Above: This new construction in Coquina Sands blends Old Florida style with transitional livability for the family of ve who call it home, sweet home. A stucco exterior gives a much more durable nish than traditional wood or even cement board. On the cover: The classic Old Florida exterior gives way to light, bright, wide open spaces inside. COVER STORYAMBER FREDERIKSEN / COURTESY PHOTOS Old FloridaNEW livin
At approximately 7,500 square feet under roof and 4,700 square feet under air, the five-bedroom, 4-bath home is larger than it initially appears thanks to its proportions. And that classic Old Florida exterior gives way to beautiful wide-open spaces once inside. One of the first things visitors notice is the flooring: a nice washed white oak look that is actually large-scale tile. Mrs. Rautenkranz, who handled interior design duties on her own, chose a variety of wood-look tiles throughout the home for durability. But its the way they were laid, with virtually no visible grout lines, that adds to the real wood look. They did a great job on the selection of the materials, the general contractor says of his clients. Another nice touch is that all of the mirrors in the bathrooms (sans the master) are illuminated by LED lights within the mirror itself, so you get that lightring look as though you are living fulltime with a SnapChat filter. Someone came to see the house last week and said they needed to carry that mirror around with them, Mrs. Rautenkranz says with a laugh. They said, I look really good with this light. The only must-have I didnt get out of my five must-haves is a TV in the mirror of the master bathroom, she adds. Everyone said, Those are not a good idea, they break and then you have to replace them. Her other must-haves? A his-and-hers master bathroom; a hood over the kitchen stove; the standalone tub that fills from the ceiling; and a 100-percent infinityedged pool. And the latter is certainly the showstopper in the outdoor living space. Mrs. Rautenkranz had seen similar pools out west but none locally. In fact, the pool builder, Nassau Pools, had never built one in Collier County. It was definitely an expense, but one, now that you see it, especially at night, thats totally worth it, she says. The pool, she adds, is the houses claim to fame. The water looks like its flowing up onto the pavers. Everyone should have one its just that cool. But inside theres still plenty to love. Several rooms feature vaulted ceilings with varieties of wood. And though the vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom is lovely, it became a bit of a challenge. That gave us the most heartache, says Mrs. Rautenkranz, because of the light fixture (a crystal chandelier). The ceiling is not flush, and thats a flat light fixture that has to hang down. It probably took us a good six weeks to figure out how we were going to use beams to make it work. All because of a light fixture purchased before construction began. (I bet a lot of us can relate to that one.) It was the first light fixture I bought and so I was like, We have to make this work because I bought this a long time ago. Were using it. I dont care, she says. Mr. Rautenkranz has his own stamp on several features within the home. A gifted woodworker, he built the fireplace mantle, window seats for each daughters bedroom and a marble door for their sons bedroom. At Disneys Rock n Roller coaster theres this door with grates on it and these individual marbles in the door and they move, Mrs. Rautenkranz explains. Our son asked for that and we said we couldnt. Then we secretly built it for him. It has 1,857 marbles in the door. He bought 300 marbles at first, but quickly realized that was only filling half a foot. Hmm. Thats not what I thought she meant when she said marble door. But there is clearly a lot to love about this new Old Florida home. And with all of those personal touches, it seems theres a lot of love inside as well.

18 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf youve ever dreamed about wandering into a little French shop filled to the brim with cute furnishings and terrific gifts but then were startled awake by the realization that the shop wasnt perfect because it didnt have a friendly basset hound named Basile wandering around sniffing the handmade soaps from Normandy Im about to blow your mind. Little Paris, a charming boutique that recently opened in Promenade at Bonita Bay (behind DeRomos), features a majority of European imported furnishing, accents and more from crystal chandeliers to fragrant soaps. Its as though the motherdaughter co-owners are from France or something. Oh wait, they are. (Hence the authenticity.) When you walk in the first thing you see is a big white table that Ive laid out as though youre walking into a house, says Felicia Derell, the daughter in the equation. It has dishes, crystal glasses, chandeliers and turquoise. Just above that is a big, gray/ natural shade mirror. Basically, what shes saying is that she just saved you round-trip airfare to Charles de Gaulle Airport. And that goes doubly if you happen to be in the market for dcor such as bath accessories, vases, pillows and throws and artwork; tableware such as flatware, glassware, dinnerware and linens; furniture such as chests of drawers, armchairs, desks and metal benches; and any-occasion gifts such as handbags and small jewelry. Its an interior dcor store with lots of gifts, Ms. Derell says. We realized that people on holiday are going back to their homes up north so they need to bring little things back and they cant take a (large) mirror obviously. Thats why were selling small items at all prices, too. For that very purpose they bought 24 small crystal b utter dishes and put them out on the table. They were sold out in three days. I dont know why, says Ms. Derell, with a laugh. People just loved them. And weve SHOP TALKOoh, la la!French boutique Little Paris brings a bit of Europe to the PromenadeIf youd like to visit the French countryside but cant spare the time, we suggest you drive to the Promenade at Bonita Bay and walk through Little Paris. The new boutique features a number of authentic French items including dinnerware, fragrant bath soaps shaped like cupcakes and wingless ceramic hens that the owners say are flying off the shelves.

got some porcelain hens with funny faces that weve nearly sold out of as well. Go figure. Theyve sold out of porcelain bunnies as well. Yep, there goes Easter. Luckily, Basile the basset hound sports big floppy ears and could double for the Easter Bunny if you take your glasses off. Both mother and daughter bought flats here four years ago and decided this was the time to live their dream of opening a small shop. Felicia has been working for the Ministry of the Interior of France for the past 20 years, but has always liked home dcor. My mother told me, If you want to go for your dream, youve got to do it now, she says. We thought, Well, we love Florida. Its beautiful. Im half British and half French, so the language isnt an issue. And my mother is bi-lingual, too. So I took three years away from my job I can return if I want to, but I dont really want to and I came last year to choose a location When I saw the shop with all the white walls and the windows, I knew it would be lovely for the furniture. Stop in and see if you agree.
