Records show it has helped do that at hospitals, easing the burden of uncompensated care they provide for the poor or people who for one reason or another do not pay their medical bills.

NOAA is not given to hyperbole. The report looks at American coastlines of the future, north to south and east to west, based on solid science. To his own credit, I think Mr. Trump is taking NOAA seriously. That has to be why hes spending so much time in MarA-Lago, at huge taxpayer expense. Someday, the place will be an underwater reef. Heres another situation: The state of Arkansas killed four prison inmates in April, using murder weapons it conned the drug companies out of before their use-by date of April 30. Drug companies dont like selling drugs for state-sanctioned murders because it looks bad, so Arkansas had to pretend it wasnt trying to increase rather than decrease mortality levels in prisons when it got the stuff. Although Arkansas officials deny such subterfuge, that appears to be how they picked up the drugs they used to kill these men. When officials realized they werent going to be able to use those drugs after April 30, they chose 12 death-row inmates and tried to rush through their executions. There were protests, of course, but officials managed to nail four of them, at least one suffering violently as he died, according to news reports and they did it before the deadline. The dead men were pretty bad people, too, and nevermind if they were born with sub-normal intelligences, were sexually abused, burned with cigarette butts and whipped with chains when they were kids some of them were. All in a days work in Arkansas and a lot of other places, including Florida. For you members of the NO SYMPATHY club, I recommend moving to Texas. The Lone Star State started the new millennium in 2000 by executing 40 inmates in a single year. The most nonviolent year in Texas since then happens to be 2017. And its not over. So far this year, Texas has killed four people, like Arkansas. I dont know whats wrong with Florida, for Gods sake. Weve turned into real wimps. We havent executed anybody in 2017 thats so embarrassing. Perhaps Gov. Scott, who apparently favors capital punishment almost as much Gov. Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas, should ask for volunteers to be capitally punished. We have our reputations to think of, after all. Florida did kill one person last year, which is pitiful. Just one. But I console myself by remembering that were fourth in the overall state rankings going back 40 years, with 92 notches in our belt. Still, Texas has killed 542 in that time, followed by Oklahoma and Virginia, tied at 112 each. We need to try harder. It must be that lefty Yankee influence. Yankees come down here to the Sunshine State, put in high rises and shopping malls, object to all the old traditions like lynching black people and growing sugar cane at taxpayersupported expense across land dredged and pumped out where water once flowed from Lake Okeechobee into the Everglades, and they change who we are. Thats when it finally happens: We start making nice with these death row devils. Wimps R Us. But let me ask you No Sympathy clubbers a question: How would you feel if you came home to your parents house one day and found them standing in the living room over a man bound and gagged, kneeling on the floor? And your mother put two loads of double ought buckshot in your fathers old side-byside shotgun, snapped the weapon closed, handed him the gun and watched him shoot the man in the neck? How would you feel about your parents then? Thats the problem with the state going around murdering people, no matter who or what those people did, or are. The state is our home. We might not want state officials murdering bad guys in our living room. That might not be what we want our kids to see, either, from us or our own parents. So we might want to rethink this thing. And finally, let me mention a third situation: A Florida panther came calling at my Alva home this week, where dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, goats and horses all wander around like theyre still living in the Garden of Eden, where nobody kills anybody. I was on the porch, late afternoon, and suddenly there it was, staring out of the woods at me from about 20 yards away. And eyeballing the menu, spread out conveniently across my yard. Did I reach for my Remington .270 or my Winchester 30.06 or the old .30-30 lever action, or my Browning .22 mag or my short-barreled Remington 12-guage pump or an AR-15 or anything else machine guns, shoulder-held surface-toair missiles, light anti-tank weapons, anything? Well, yes. I picked up a pitchfork and a cell phone with camera. And photographed the creature, who probably only weighed 100 pounds, at most a tawny, intense, hungry, humorless-looking cat not entirely unnerved by my appearance, my approach or my whooping. He (or she) moved away like a dream, with no sound through the crackling-dry bush, perhaps the single most beautiful thing Ive ever seen in Florida. That we could still live with such peerless magnificence is a gift unparalleled, once you recognize it. So one guy, Pop Hog he calls himself, responded to my Facebook post to suggest the panther is like the jewfish (goliath grouper): its a fur-bag that deserves no protection because it eats livestock. I think Pop Hog should move to Texas, too.

Its purpose was to apologize for the states historical role in institutionalizing and promulgating slavery. The resolution said in part, Whereas African slavery was sanctioned and enforced through laws enacted by Floridas first Territorial Legislative Council in 1822, and the Council and its successors did, over four decades, construct a legal framework that perpetuated African slavery in one of its most brutal and dehumanizing forms the Legislature expresses its profound regret for Floridas role in sanctioning and perpetuating involuntary servitude upon generations of African slaves. It might be a revelation to learn the Sunshine State has standing in the slavery hall of shame. But the states relationship with the peculiar institution began three centuries before the time of the Civil War. The Spanish initiated the practice in the late 1500s, and the British continued it long thereafter. The states coastline played into the expansion of slavery by providing ports of entry and egress pivotal to sustaining a thriving slave trade. After Florida became a U.S. territory in the 1800s, the presence of human chattel boomed. The states cheap land and hospitable climate attracted enterprising farmers from the northeast and the Atlantic seaboard. They established plantation-style operations mostly in the Panhandle and central Florida. To grow cotton, corn, sugarcane and other crops. The slave workforce became a significant proportion of the states population. By 1830, the agricultural region where most slaves lived and worked Jackson, Gadsden, Leon, Jefferson and Madison counties became known as the states black belt. Meanwhile, what was happening in Florida was happening elsewhere. By 1860, the census takers tallied almost 4 million slaves in 16 states and two territories. The same year, census takers counted 62,000 slaves in Florida, representing 44 percent of the states population. When our state Legislature issued its apology, Florida joined five other states Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey and Virginia that had already made similar statements. It took humility and courage to break ranks with the old Confederacy and admit the historical wrong in having once heartily defended state-sponsored slavery as justifiable under any circumstance. By example of their repentance, other former slave-holding states Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska considered their options. It was an opportunity to bring closure to painful matters of the past and promote racial harmony in the present. There was even talk of making reparations to the descendants of slaves for the wholesale robbery of their generational legacies. But that didnt get far. And now, nine years hence, none appears to have followed through on their good intentions. Nor have there been additional legislative expressions of regret, even among those states with at least as much if not more to admit. The historical complicity of states in aiding and abetting slavery proved to be a touchy topic. Even so, Virginia, the largest slaveholding state, did apologize for its historical role in sanctioning the practice. But Mississippi and South Carolina have not, though historically, each once had more slaves than free people; and historical records document in excruciating detail how effectively these states used slavery as a tool of oppression and with such dismal effect upon multiple generations of black people. From the continued silence of these state governments on the subject, one can surmise that only when hell freezes over will any semblance of an apology to the descendants of slaves be forthcoming and maybe not even then. You might think an apology by former slave-holding states for having once codified slavery in law and policy is modest atonement for the terrible injustice inflicted upon millions of human beings. But even this modest gesture is controverted by the racist attitudes held by those deeply loyal to a mythical Southern past. These beliefs cloak would-be rebels in a moral turpitude that still haunts the region. In this historical mind of the South, reconciliation is an admission of defeat. In the final days of our states 2017 legislative session, the House voted unanimously to construct, on the grounds of the state Capitol, Floridas first memorial denoting the history of slavery in the state. But when the bill was forwarded to the Senate, Sen. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, the chairman of the Senate Government Oversight & Accountability Committee, balked. He refused to schedule a hearing, stalling the Senates vote on the bill. Said Baxley, I wouldnt want to build a memorial to child abuse; I wouldnt want to build a memorial to sexual abuse, adding that a memorial recognizing slavery would be too negative and would celebrate defeat. Baxley is a known quantity among lost cause die-hards. He fought the removal of darkies from Floridas prior state song; objected to memorializing Union soldiers who shared death and their final resting place among fallen Confederates and opposed a House bill banning the Confederate flags flight over state and government property. The more some things change, the more some things remain the same.

Even if you were paying only very little attention, you would have gotten the distinct impression over the past four election cycles that the GOP was unalterably committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare. It didnt matter what year the Republicans were running (2010, 2012, 2014 or 2016) or what presidential candidate (earnest, establishment-friendly Mitt Romney or bombastic outsider Donald Trump), repeal of Obamacare remained the consistent theme. The party didnt leave anything in doubt. It didnt rely on weasel words or escape hatches. Republicans pledged to, as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz put it, repeal every blasted word of Obamacare. And not in phases, not slowly over time, but ASAP. With the House on the verge perhaps of getting a repeal-and-replace bill through, it is worth recalling the years of sweeping promises. The House bill will roll back Obamacare taxes and introduce a significant reform of Medicaid, but when it comes to the heart of Obamacare the regulations the bill only makes it possible for states to get waivers, based on certain conditions. This is a bill probably worth having, even if it would have earned the derision of Republicans back in the days when they were winning elections with Churchillian statements of resolve on Obamacare. Now, when Republicans actually have power, everything looks different. First, there are the cold feet. As soon as Republicans were confronted with the possibility of writing law rather than making symbolic gestures, they lost much of their enthusiasm for the repeal-only bill they had sent to President Barack Obamas desk for a ritual veto in January 2016. Second, while think-tank types and a few officeholders seriously grappled with what a replacement bill would look like, for much of the party it was merely the second part of the repeal-and-replace slogan. Third, many Republican moderates in the House were highly reluctant to repeal Obamacare, even though they hadnt bothered to let anyone know. Finally, the highest-profile Obamacare regulations, especially the protections for people with pre-existing conditions, are politically potent. Whether to get rid of them and how has proved the main sticking point in the House, and even the carefully crafted waiver provision is vulnerable to distortion and stinging attack. All of this means House Republicans have been hard-pressed to pass an incomplete and jury-rigged repeal-and-replace. To their credit, they didnt simply give up after the failure of the first version. And their work has been significantly complicated by taking into account what can ultimately survive under Senate rules bypassing the filibuster. Checking the box of a health-care bill in the House, almost any health-care bill, will impart some momentum to the effort, although its unclear what the prospects will be in the Senate, where the divisions over Obamacare are as stark as in the House, and the margin for error even smaller. What is obvious is that this hasnt been the glorious triumph as advertised election after election. The cliche is that you campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Republicans campaigned for years in stark exaggerations and now are governing in flawed compromises. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. i b s i r s c rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

Letter carriers hope customers can help Stamp Out HungerThe 25th anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger food drive is Saturday, May 13. Postal customers around the country are urged to leave nonperishable food items by their mailbox for their letter carriers to collect. Collier Harvest has partnered with mail carriers in Collier County for all 25 years of the food drive. Stamp Out Hunger donations aid the 40 nonprofit agencies Collier Harvest serves through the long summer months. More than 60 percent of Collier County students are eligible for free or reduced meals due to their families low income levels. During the summer, these children wont receive those school meals, which are often their main food source of the day, Connie Preu, Collier Harvest executive director, says. Many area families also see reduced or eliminated work hours due to seasonal work needs, she adds. This is why its so important we collect as much food as possible through the Stamp Out Hunger drive. Volunteer drivers are needed to follow letter carriers along their Saturday routes and transport donations back to the Collier Harvest warehouse at 4451 Mercantile Ave. in Naples. Helpers are also needed to sort the food collected for Stamp Out Hunger. Anyone of middle-school age and older is welcome to lend a hand for an hour or more between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the warehouse. Help is especially needed toward the end of the day as donations pour in. Beverages, pizza and live entertainment will be provided. Pantry items can also be dropped off at the U.S. Post Office on Goodlette-Frank Road or at the Coco River U.S. Post Office on Immokalee Road during anytime during regular post office hours. Throughout the year, Collier Harvest volunteers pick up surplus food from local restaurants and grocery stores and deliver it to dozens of food pantries and agencies that feed the hungry. The organization accepts monetary gifts in addition to food donations. Although administrative costs are kept low and volunteers use their personal vehicles and fuel to deliver the donated food, the organization still requires some monetary support to fulfill its mission. For more information or to volunteer to help Stamp Out Hunger, call 455-3663 or visit www.collierharvest. org.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYing to Kaiser Family Foundation. Close to 1.8 million Floridians have coverage through the ACA this year, people who likely would not be able to pay for hospital care out of pocket. At Southwest Florida hospitals from 2013 to 2015, the percentage of uncompensated care they provided fell both in in terms of charity care, the care they provide to the poor for no charge, and bad debt, unpaid bills from patients who hospitals determine are not eligible for charity care or did not apply for it. At most nonprofit hospitals in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties, charity care dropped between 9.5 percent and 31 percent in that time, state records show. Lee Healths Gulf Coast Medical Center, for instance, spent 3.2 percent of its revenue on charity care in 2013 and 2.8 percent in 2015, a 12.5 percent drop. For-profit hospitals such as Physicians Regional Healthcare System usually provide far less charity care, less than 1 percent of their revenue, but pay taxes. The cost of bad debt at local hospitals also dipped but less so than charity care, reversing a trend in growth. As a total dollar amount, uncompensated care has continued to grow for many hospitals, reflecting trends such as population growth. Hospitals and patient advocates says costs would have been further reduced if Gov. Rick Scott and Florida legislators had not refused to expand Medicaid, government-backed insurance for the poor. Florida is one of 19 states that did not accept federal funding to grow the program under the ACA to cover able-bodied adults without children who dont have insurance. That leaves roughly 800,000 people in Florida who fall into what is often called the coverage gap, unable to qualify for Medicaid or for the tax subsidies they need to buy private insurance. Lee Health, a public nonprofit system that operates hospitals throughout Lee County, found that about 40,000 people with no insurance who use its hospitals would have been eligible under a Medicaid expansion. Of that number, said Ben Spence, Lee Healths chief financial officer, the study found only about 16,000 people would have followed through on signing up for Medicaid. It looked like we would bring in about $35 million in additional reimbursement if these people were insured with Medicaid, he said. The way we fund the uninsured today is we have to pass on higher rates to private insurance so we can cover the losses. That in turn could be a factor in rising premiums, deductibles and co-pays for people who buy private insurance through the ACAs exchanges. And if you dont have that money set aside and your deductible is $6,000, most people dont have that money laying around, Mr. Spence said. But at least anything over that the hospitals getting paid and theyre not going to pursue you for that amount over your deductible. Higher deductibles are also part of the reason why the costs of uncompensated care are rising again for NCH Healthcare System in Naples, said chief financial officer Rick Wyles. In addition, Medicaid, which already covers nearly 4 million Floridians, does not reimburse hospitals for the full cost of care. What were seeing is that it did go down slightly for a year or so but now its coming back, Mr. Wyles said. NCH director of revenue cycle Sandy Wood said that some patients who signed up in 2014 chose to drop their health insurance later because premiums were too expensive. With each new year weve seen premiums rise, she said. So unfortunately, patients have had to weigh, do they continue to stay in the program and pay the premiums or accept the penalty the government imposes on them for not participating in a plan? Also, patients who needed a specific type of health service taken care of got into a plan. Maybe they needed to have a hip or knee replacement. We saw patients getting into plans to have a specific treatment done, but once that occurred they made the decision to opt out again. The greatest portion of uncompensated care comes from emergency rooms. They are required to treat patients regardless of their ability to pay. Thats one of the ideas of having insurance, is you use your primary care physician and get the services done in the most cost effective manner, Mr. Wyles said. The people who dont have insurance end up showing up in our emergency room, which is the highest cost of care you can receive. Those patients have also often waited until they are facing a health crisis or more complex illness than the insured, driving up the bill even more. Not everyone agrees that expanding Medicaid would result in patients using the emergency room less. Able-bodied adults without dependent children, a population targeted by Medicaid expansion, are already used to going to the ER, said Ed Haislmaier, senior research fellow in health policy at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington D.C. And the program doesnt do enough to steer them toward primary care. You have to go in and manage this population because they know, I dont have to pay for any of this stuff, he said. When something happens Ill just go to the hospital. So youve got to find a way to engage them and get them out of the hospital and get them into a different, more appropriate setting, particularly someone that has a chronic condition BILLFrom page 1THE WHITE HOUSE / COURTESY PHOTOPresident Donald Trump addresses the public with a celebratory group, gleeful to praise passing the new health care bill in the House of Representatives on May 4.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 NEWS A9like diabetes. And the problem is Medicaid is not designed to do that, Medicaid is very rigid. Hospitals want Medicaid expansion, he said, because it improves their bottom line: In every single state its the same, the hospital lobby wants the Medicaid expansion. But if youre looking at it from the point of public policy, the answer isnt an unequivocal yes. In fact, the taxpayers and patients may be better off if you reprogram the money going to hospitals already in some of these supplemental payment arrangements. Put that money into focusing better on people who are falling through the cracks and make sure they are treated in a more appropriate setting. Medicaid has definitely reduced bad debt for hospitals in the 31 states that did expand it, said Paul H. Keckley, managing editor of The Keckley Report, a healthcare researcher and industry expert. He added that charity care and bad debt have come down, also, because hospitals have been more cautious about their spending due to factors such as the spiking cost of drugs. Too, South Florida has a high population of seniors on Medicare, another government program that doesnt cover the full cost of care for hospitals. (Medicaid expansion) would have helped, Mr. Keckley said. Its not a windfall. What happens is organizations like Lee Health are, I think, in the most complicated and challenging set of market conditions you can find. Youve got substantial growth in the population so utilization (of hospitals) is going up. That utilization is largely of lower income folks and seniors who use the system frequently, and the government is the payer, and the government doesnt cover your cost. So had Medicaid expanded in Florida, would Lee have benefited? Absolutely. Would that have been the difference in a huge new set of capital investments or an expansion? No.Uncertain futureNow hospitals are looking toward an uncertain future as the federal government weighs major changes to the Affordable Care Act that could cut Medicaid even further in Florida instead of expanding it. A bill to replace major parts of the ACA passed the U.S. House of Representatives on May 4, including more than $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid in the U.S., said Mr. Keckley. It would have to pass the Senate before making its way to President Trumps desk to sign into law. Floridas Medicaid program covers well over 4 million people, said Bruce Rueben, president of Florida Hospital Association. So it would have a profound impact in Florida. He called the bill a variation of the bill the government failed to pass earlier this year, in which the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated 24 million in the U.S. would lose health insurance. I would just say that were really hopeful as well that the coverage thats currently provided isnt taken away or at least is improved upon or enhanced, Mr. Rueben said. Another change from the federal government could come in the form of more money for Floridas low income pool, which along with state dollars had helped hospitals provide indigent care. That was being phased out with the expectation that Florida would expand Medicaid so those dollars would not be necessary. The New York Times reported on April 30 that the federal government tentatively has agreed to provide $1.5 billion for Floridas low-income pool in coming fiscal years, which could help relieve the costs of uncompensated care for hospitals. We certainly welcome it and think its very much needed and necessary with and without Medicaid expansion, Mr. Spence of Lee Health said. But its not clear if the state can provide the matching funds needed to get that money, or how it will be distributed. Mr. Rueben said that $1.5 billion is a small fraction of what Medicaid expansion would have provided Florida. Medicaid expansion, had it been implemented, would have meant about $50 billion over 10 years, he said. The low-income pool has been approved for $1.5 billion annually for four years if the state can match it (with about $600 million). (And), the low-income pool pays for health care to people who have no means to pay after theyve received it. The Medicaid expansion would have provided people with health insurance coverage access to primary care, diagnostic care, acute care the opportunity to have a full continuum of care if they needed it. So the Medicaid expansion is a much, much more effective way to keep people healthy. The two are not even close. Mr. Wyles of NCH in Naples said, Were preparing for some rough waters here. Its certainly not a rosy picture for the health care industry in general. At the end of the day the government is going to struggle to pay for health care in this nation and will continue to look for ways to cut costs.

The fund aims to sustain nonprofits that serve immigrants and to support innovative ideas to meet the future needs of the immigrant community and the economy of Southwest Florida. Major donors to the fund will constitute an advisory board and assist in evaluating grant applications. After researching local needs, a team of volunteers has designed two pilot programs to connect immigrant residents with legal services: The Immigration Legal Services project will supplement staffing support at nonprofits by placing a qualified immigration attorney in a location convenient for clients who would otherwise not be able to access such legal help or afford it. El Camino (The Path) is a mobile and web-based app that offers immigration guidance and local resources in order for individuals to qualify and pursue employment and permanent residency. Still in development, this pilot program will be available for download and distribution by employers, faithbased organizations and social service agencies, among others. It will assist users by providing the information they need in advance of appointments with immigration attorneys. The five counties of Southwest Florida are home to many of the states immigrants working in such fields as health care, agriculture, construction and the hospitality industry, said Dawn-Marie Driscoll, a project team member. Yet only two counties provide effective nonprofit legal aid to assist immigrants with their status issues. Lacking access to reliable and affordable legal services, many immigrant residents, especially those of low to modest means and those facing deportation, have fallen victim to predatory legal practices. Donations for both pilot projects and to the overall Land of Opportunity Fund are being accepted at www.landofopportunityfund.org. Visit the website for more information. DRISCOLL

However, the Juicero (a) requires that the fruit and veggies be pre-sliced in precise sections conveniently available for purchase from the Juicero company, (b) has, for some reason, a Wi-Fi connection, and (c) sells for $399. (Bonus: Creator Jeff Dunn originally priced it at $699, but had to discount it after brutal shopper feedback.

Great art Monument to flossing: Russian artist Mariana Shumkova is certainly doing her part for oral hygiene, publicly unveiling her St. Petersburg statuette of a frightening, malformed head displaying actual extracted human teeth, misaligned and populating holes in the face that represent the mouth and eyes. She told Pravda in April that only (something with) a strong emotional impact would make people think about tooth care. Artist Lucy Gafford of Mobile, Ala., has a flourishing audience of fans (exact numbers not revealed), reported AL.com in March, but lacking a formal brick and mortar gallery show, she must exhibit her estimated 400 pieces online only. Gafford, who has long hair, periodically flings loose, wet strands onto her shower wall and arranges them into designs, which she photographs and posts, at a rate of about one new creation a week since 2014. Bright ideas Though complete details were not available in news reports of the case, it is nonetheless clear that magistrates in Llandudno, Wales, had ordered several punishments in April for David Roberts, 50, including probation, a curfew, paying court costs, and, in the magistrates words, that Roberts attend a thinking skills course. Roberts had overreacted to a speeding motorcyclist on a footpath by later installing a chest-high, barbed-wire line across the path that almost slashed another cyclist. (A search did not turn up thinking skills courses in Wales or in America, where they are certainly badly needed, even though successful classes of that type would surely make News of the Weirds job harder.)

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 NEWS A13 BEHIND THE WHEELCar companies are trading brands like quarterbacksThe NFL draft should have nothing to do with the auto industry. But as a few key trades have affected an entire league, right now, it feels like there is little difference between the gridiron and the assembly line. Last month, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne got analysts buzzing. During a conference call, he suggested that part of the companys strategy was to sell off the Jeep and Ram truck brands. While this idea was once gossip, when the person calling the shots at FCA casually confirms it, rumors graduate into probable plans. This possible o utcome shouldnt be a big surprise to industry watchers. Jeep and Ram are the most profitable parts of the business. They have been given the newest vehicles while lineups at Dodge and Chrysler have been streamlined. With this move, Fiat has an opportunity to cash out its investment (they bought controlling interest in the American firm six years ago.) Plus, even if Jeep and Ram are jettisoned, the remaining dealer network will be an attractive buy for companies looking to make inroads in the U.S. After all, another foreign carmaker might want to take advantage of the brand names known to Americans and their local dealerships. At the same time, this new company can inset its own products to replace cars like the departing Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart. FCAs Italian management wont be exceptionally burdened if they divorce the American brands. Fiat created its own inroads back to the U.S. by requiring many separate and new dealerships for the Fiat and Alfa Romeo vehicles. Thus, if Marchionne doesnt have much to lose when selling a brand or two, we should all listen when he says Jeep and Ram are in play. If the remaining Chrysler/Dodge cars and its dealer network were up for grabs, it would not only appeal to the emerging Chinese brands, but also the established Peugeot/Citroen. General Motors is the catalyst for that. GM announced a deal a few weeks ago to sell off its European-focused Opel and Vauxhall brands to Peugeot/Citroen. At first that might appear of little consequence to the American automaker, but the ripples will be felt on this side of the Atlantic. The German firm Opel was at the engineering heart of GMs mid-priced sedan. It was able to inject some Volkswagen-like qualities into cars like the current Buick Regal and Chevrolet Impala. But the cars built under the Opel badge were not making GM money i.e., engineering great, sales bad. But the deciding factor might have been Vauxhall. Its a brand only sold in the UK, and some of those cars are built in mainland Europe. So imports in a post-Brexit world also had GM running scared. The sale of Opel and Vauxhall is seen as a move to slim down operations. It also shifts more focus to the elongated luxury sedans that China loves and the SUVs/ crossovers that Americans crave. General Motors is not moving out of mid-priced sedan segments. Its just going to be harder for them to compete once Opel goes from being an in-house consultant to an open market competitor likely as part of when Peugeot/Citroen returns to the U.S And since GMs engineering budget will likely be more devoted to SUVs than these brea d-n-butter sedans, the smart money is on them teaming up with a new partner.While this is pure speculation, there are plenty of companies that would be happy to re-badge cars for General Motors. Mazda has been a partner with everyone from Toyota to Fiat, and Renault/Nissan loves more alliances (the Nissan NV200 is already a thinly disguised Chevrolet City Express.) This whole evaluation is just taking a look at the current landscape and the open opportunities for car companies. There are plenty of related factors that can stifle the winds of change. New taxes on imported vehicles, huge sales decreases in the U.S., or a fuel crisis shattering the SUV/truck-heavy strategies by FCA and GM these, and many more, are realistic ways of crippling a global shift. But right now, the conditions are ripe to watch historic brands make some interesting moves, and the U.S. is the epicenter. But its going to be years before we know how smart the automotive executives really are. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Grab a cup o joe with a Collier copThe Collier County Sheriffs Office and Dunkin Donuts invite the public to the next Coffee with a Cop from 7-10 a.m. Tuesday, May 16, at Dunkin Donuts at 3345 Radio Road in East Naples.

SCOREFrom page 1Registered dietician Penny Rambacher has been chosen as the fifth Ooh La La Legacy Lady for 2017. Ms. Rambacher is the founder of Miracles in Action, a nonprofit that provides an income stream to Guatemalan women by selling their beaded jewelry, key charms and textiles. All handmade in indigenous Mayan communities, the sale of these handicrafts allows the artisans to earn an income from their home while taking care of their children. Miracles in Action has also raised enough money through donations to coordinate the construction of 54 rural schools, 24 village water systems, 20 vocational workshops, more than 2,800 safe fuel-efficient stoves and more than 2,200 water purification filters in Guatemala. In her former career as a flight attendant with American Airlines, Ms. Rambacher had the opportunity to travel around the world for work, for pleasure and to make a difference in the lives of the poor. In 1999 she and her mother, Noreen Rambacher, stunned by the horrible poverty they saw, led missions to Ecuador and Guatemala to deliver aid to those living at city dumps and in remote Mayan villages. In 2001, Noreen Rambacher was diagnosed with cancer and told by doctors that she had three months to live. She felt she was still needed in Guatemala and before she passed away she wanted to leave a legacy by building a rural primary school. I promised my mother I would carry on her legacy of learning, so we continue to build schools, Penny Rambacher says. In January 2005, both women celebrated the grand opening of School of Miracles #1, named after the miracle that extended Noreens life by four years. Penny, a cancer survivor herself, has made it her lifes mission to serve those in need. The Legacy Lady program was created by Ooh La La Jewels du Jour owners and sisters Amy Turner and Tammy Turner Kipp. The sixth and final Legacy Lady for 2017 will be honored in June.

Kids rule at new Golisano Childrens Hospital SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe brand new Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida was designed exclusively for kids and those who love and care for them. Sunny and Sparkle, the Sunshine Explorers, are everywhere to help guide patients, family members and other visitors and lessen the stress of their time in the hospital. Decorative sculptures, menus and food carts, educational materials and coloring booklets and much more throughout the 300,000-square-foot, seven-story hospital feature the colorful mascots and their friends. A variety of seating arrangements allows the child in all of us to enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding areas and take advantage of the healing qualities of nature and natural light, says Melissa Flaugher, senior facilities designer of the hospital. When the sun goes down, she adds, patients can control the color of the LED lights in their rooms. Their color choices are seen from outside the building; this is a design expression controlled entirely by patients and their families. Each floor has a greeter, a special character sculpture that ties together the floors color and theme so patients and families can find their way in a more memorable fashion than traditional written signage. The hospitals Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, home to 64 private rooms, is equivalent in size to a football field. The NICU stands independent of the rest of the facilitys design when it comes to themes and way-finding. It takes on a more quiet, nursery-like feel with seven uniquely themed and colored neighborhoods so families can better identify their own space and can feel comfortable navigating in such a large area, Ms. Flaugher explains. Chief Administrative Officer Kathy Bridge-Liles says these kid-friendly features, bright colors and special design elements are intended to make patients happier, healthier and heal faster so they can return home sooner. The design team was amazing to work with, incredible and very creative and innovative in their design approach, she says. The hospital has 128 patient beds in private rooms and the capacity to expand to 160 beds. It replaces the 98-bed childrens hospital that was housed within HealthPark Medical Center next door. Other features include: Kidzspace application-based game tables and NunoErin drum tables with interactive color-changing lights in the public lobbies, on floors 3-7. Gesturetek interactive nature murals projected on large walls and lobby and activity room floors. A lobby media wall on the first floor that can be used for movie night as well as educational and community presentations. A shaded outdoor play area with soft sculptures and a chalk wall on which kids can draw in the therapeutic Cohen Family Garden on the first floor. A non-denominational chapel with child-friendly seating and vibrant stained glass. Operated by Lee Health, the new Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is off Summerlin Road near Bass Road in south Fort Myers. Formal planning and fundraising for the hospital began in 2010. In 2012, Naples businessman and philanthropist Thomas Golisano pledged to match $20 million in private donations. Energized by the chance to support childrens health care and the hospitals construction, an eager community met the challenge in only a years time. The hospital was off and running toward its fundraising goal of $100 million, which it reached in November 2016.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESNew dog family tree BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationFamily lore says we have Cherokee and Choctaw ancestry, but genetic testing didnt bear that out. My dog Gemma, however, can claim to be a New World dog whose genetic ancestry at least some of it goes back 10,000 or more years to the earliest dogs who migrated with their people to populate the Americas. Gemma is half-Chihuahua, according to her canine DNA test results from Embark. A study published last month in the journal Cell Reports found that Chihuahuas were among a group of dogs with large amounts of DNA unlike that of other breeds. Those breeds included the American hairless terrier, Chinese crested (not actually from China, despite the name), Peruvian Inca orchid, rat terrier, toy fox terrier and Xoloitzcuintli (also known as the Mexican hairless). Archaeological evidence of an ancient canine subspecies existed, but this study marks the first living evidence of it in modern breeds. What we noticed is that there are groups of American dogs that separated somewhat from the European breeds, says study co-author and dog geneticist Heidi Parker of the National Institutes of Health. Weve been looking for some kind of signature of the New World Dog, and these dogs have New World Dogs hidden in their genome. Scientists examined gene sequences from 1,346 dogs representing 161 modern breeds to assemble a canine evolutionary tree. Its the largest and most diverse group of breeds studied to date and includes dogs from North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Whats the value of such a study? It has several purposes. For one, the map of dog breeds will likely help researchers identify disease-causing genes in both dogs and humans. Using all this data, you can follow the migration of disease alleles and predict where they are likely to pop up next, and thats just so empowering for our field because a dog is such a great model for many human diseases, says the studys senior co-author and dog geneticist Elaine Ostrander of the NIH. Every time theres a disease gene found in dogs, it turns out to be important in people, too. One interesting finding was evidence of shared diseases across groups of dogs. For instance, collie eye anomaly (CEA) is a disease that affects development of the choroid in herding breeds such as the Australian shepherd, border collie, collie and Shetland sheepdog. But it also affects Nova Scotia duck tolling retrievers, which until this study were not known to share ancestry with herding breeds. The analysis showed that collies and Shetland sheepdogs were strong but undocumented contributors to the duck tollers ancestry, making them the likely source of the CEA mutation in that breed. The study also highlighted how the most ancient dog breeds evolved to perform certain roles. Humans likely began with certain types of dogs such as sleek, leggy dogs with strong prey drives for hunting and mid-size dogs for moving flocks and then further selected for specific physical traits. The cultural move from hunting to agriculture may have instigated the formation of breeds in multiple regions. I think that understanding that types go back a lot longer than breeds or just physical appearances do is something to really think about, Parker says. More than half the dog breeds in existence have yet to be sequenced. The researchers plan to keep collecting dog genomes often acquired from DNA samples provided by owners at dog shows to fill in the gaps. Gemma? Shes lording it over our cavalier King Charles spaniels because her ancestry goes back farther than theirs.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 NEWS A19 THE DIVA DIARIESFrom just talking to hanging out, heres how things get seriousIm well past the days of proms, but I confess to loving prom season. I get a tinge of nostalgia when I drive past various Southwest Florida landmarks on weekend nights in May and see girls in long gowns and wrist corsages with boys in tuxedos having their photos taken. Scrolling through my Facebook feed, I love seeing proud moms posting pictures of their kids all dressed up, standing there patiently while mom clicks her iPhone camera 1,582 times or so, trying to get the perfect shot to share. One recent night when Todd and I were out to dinner we couldnt help noticing several prom couples, the girls with fresh-from-the-salon updos and the boys looking slightly terrified, eating meals and barely talking to one another AT ALL. It rather made me wonder about the status of these couples. Coincidentally, due to being eight weeks into recovery with a broken ankle, Ive been getting an education in teen dating. You see, at physical therapy you meet a wide range of folks and at my doctors office at least, the overwhelming majority of those folks have been high school kids with sports injuries. One day last week, a pretty softball player with long blonde hair was there for rehab on her foot. She had brought a girlfriend with her, and while I worked on Achilles stretches I overheard the two talking about boys. They may as well have been speaking Swahili considering the foreign terms they used to describe dating. It turns out that in 2017, teen romance is far more complicated than ever. So, I politely interrupted the girls and requested a lesson. Heres what I learned (if you have any teenagers in your life, you might want to clip this and put it on your fridge, just so you remember): Talking Talking is the first step to becoming a couple. According to the girls I spoke with, a guy can talk to, like, five girls at the same time, without it meaning anything. And yet, it does mean something, sort of. For baby boomer or Gen X readers, the best way I can interpret talking is thats its just like flirting. So, if you ask a teen if shes dating a certain boy and she rolls her eyes and sighs, Uhg Were just TALKING, you can know that its nothing serious yet. A Thing This one sounds confusing, but as the girls explained to me, its really not. Being a thing means that if a boy was talking to five girls and he stopped talking to four of them and now only talks to one, then those two are a thing. The two wouldnt dare call themselves a thing, but their friends would know better, as in, I wouldnt try to get Jordan to talk to you. He and Chelsea are a thing. Chilling When Jordan and Chelsea finally acknowledge publicly that theyre a thing, it means theyve graduated to chilling. They still have not actually gone on a DATE yet, mind you, but they spend a lot of time together and things are starting to look good official. Hanging Out FINALLY, Jordan and Chelsea are exclusive, as Jordan has actually asked Chelsea out on a date and she has accepted. So, when you ask a teenage girl if shes got a boyfriend and she smiles, giggles, blushes and says, Well, yes, I am hanging out with a guy, you can say awesome or whatever. As a member of Gen X myself, hanging out as a teen in the s was called going together. Back then, when I told my baby boomer mother that I was going with a boy, shed ask, Going where? Id roll my eyes hard and say, Were just GOING TOGETHER. Shed roll her eyes back at me and say, You mean youre going STEADY. I had no more of an idea what going steady meant than an adult today understands what hanging out means. So, looking back at the prom couples Todd and I saw dining out recently, based on their nervous body language and the fact that they were in a group I have concluded they were somewhere between talking and chilling. And while Im pleased to learn the teenage vernacular for the romantic process, I can say without question that Im very happy to never have to repeat high school. Its way too complicated.

So its pretty much up in the air. I have friends in all those places. The Cleveland native discovered Collier County at age 15 during a visit with a SCUBA club from his hometown. We stopped in Naples as the final stop before the Keys, he says. I fell in love with Naples and said thats where I want to live, so I did. Becoming a veterinarian was Mr. Simoniks intent when he entered Ohio State University, but he ended up earning a bachelors degree in wildlife management there and later, masters degrees in environmental policy and finance from Indiana University. After graduate school, he worked as a wildlife biologist at the Barron Collier Companies citrus groves in Immokalee for one year, before spending two years in Morocco as a Peace Corps environmental educator. Then it was back to Naples, where he worked as an environmental educator with the local office of the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service.Following a stint with Punta Gordas Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, he worked as an environmental lobbyist for the Calusa Nature Center in Fort Myers and then the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, before moving on to the HSN. I returned to what I originally started out to do, he says. I didnt become a vet, but I still get to play with puppies and kittens. I think thats what Ill miss the most all the animals that are here. HSN was at a low point when he arrived, with a poor reputation, minimal volunteers, euthanization for treatable health issues and a recent board of directors split that saw some members resign. My first couple months here, there were days that not a single person walked into the shelter, he recalls. I think there was an attitude that was pervasive among some staff and volunteers about potential adopters that no one was good enough for our pets. So a lot of adoptions were denied and for all the wrong reasons. Very few animals went to homes. He also encountered policies he felt were not in keeping with the shelters mission, such as a ban on the adoption of cats and dogs less than 1 year old by families with children age 7 and younger. It made no sense at all, he says. It was just an obstacle to adoption. Thats who adopts pets: families with children. A no-kill policy was adopted within a few months of Mr. Simoniks taking charge, making restoring an animals health the priority. He praises the organizations board of directors for being progressive in its thinking and accepting of the changes he has proposed over the years. Weve had an outstanding board here for 12 years that has always understood the changes that weve made and that those changes have always been for the betterment of the animals. Improving the experience for visitors to HSN facilities everything from customer service to animal housing to maintaining a welcoming vibe and improving donor relations have also been essential to boosting the nonprofits fortune. I think were in a far better place now than weve ever been to continue the success that weve had over the last few years, he says, adding, I look forward to seeing that growth continue because theres so much more to do. HSNs main shelter and veterinary services are at 370 Airport-Pulling Road. For more information, visit www.hsnaples.org. TOPFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOMichael Simonik with Amos

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Understanding Private EquityMany of us have heard the term private equity a lot without understanding what it is. Heres a quick overview. In a nutshell, private equity firms typically engage in the following activities: Raising money from private investors such as wealthy individuals and institutions; researching and buying companies; guiding and/or making cost-cutting improvements at those companies; selling those companies for a profit. At their best, private equity firms might be rescuing a company thats on shaky financial ground and offering valuable guidance to help right the ship. Theres a darker side to private equity firms, though. For one thing, many dont have a long-term view regarding the companies they buy: They want to boost their value and sell at a profit. Many times, thousands of workers will be laid off in the interest of cost-cutting. There are several different kinds of private equity organizations. Venture capital (VC) enterprises tend to make somewhat risky investments in young, growing companies before the companies have IPOs (initial public offerings) and issue stock to the public. Companies such as Apple and Microsoft once tapped venture capital. Leveraged buyout (LBO) outfits will buy big public companies with a lot of borrowed money. The LBO company will often take the company private and use much of its excess cash to pay off its debt, often while trying to improve the efficiency of the company. Eventually, the acquired company will be sold to another buyer or to the public, via an IPO. Private equity firms arent required to release quarterly performance reports or audited financial statements, as public companies must do. They enjoy some tax advantages as well. Money invested in private equity is often tied up for at least several years. Some of the biggest private equity firms today are The Blackstone Group, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), Warburg Pincus, The Carlyle Group and Apollo Global Management. The biggest LBO deals have included KKRs purchase of RJR Nabisco in 1989 and Blackstones purchase of Hilton in 2007. From Pianos to InsuranceBack in the 1980s, I was in my early 20s. A broker sold me shares of BaldwinUnited. It dropped about 30 percent, and the broker suggested that if it was good before, it was even better after the drop. He sold me some more shares. When the company went bankrupt and I lost everything, the broker said it was a good lesson. It was. I never trusted a brokers advice again. I have been mostly in Vanguard index funds since. I do have a brokerage account of my own now, and Im not sold any stocks by a broker who has his interests in mind rather than mine. M.J.K., Portage, MichiganThe Fool Responds: It can sometimes be effective to buy more shares of a fallen stock, but many times stocks fall for good reasons and they can keep falling. Baldwin-United was a piano company that took on a lot of debt transforming itself into an insurance company. It ended up filing for bankruptcy when shares were trading for around $4.50 apiece. A year earlier, they had been at $50. Some brokers can serve you well, but many have conflicts of interest. Its hard to go wrong with Vanguard index funds, as theyre known for low fees and they often outperform most managed mutual funds. Even Warren Buffett has recommended low-cost index funds that track major stock indexes, such as the S&P 500. Earning Funds From FundsOne of the worlds largest mutual fund companies, T. Rowe Prices (Nasdaq: TROW) long history of excellence has made its own shares a winning investment. They have risen by about 17 percent annually, on average, over the past 25 years enough to turn a $2,000 investment into more than $100,000. The company has increased its dividends for 30 consecutive years, recently yielding a solid 3.3 percent. T. Rowe Prices success stems largely from the long-term success of its mutual funds, 85 percent of which have beaten their 10-year Lipper averages a performance benchmark for the mutual fund industry. This track record has allowed T. Rowe Price to grow its assets under management to more than $810 billion as of the end of 2016. Analysts estimate that T. Rowe Price can grow its earnings per share by more than 9 percent annually over the next five years. The company is guided by its founders principles, such as Put clients first and Act with integrity and accountability, and top managers have an average of 16 years investment experience. T. Rowe Prices financial structure is solid, too, with no debt on its balance sheet, giving it the stability to endure many negative economic events. The stocks price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, recently only in the mid-teens, is well below its five-year average of about 19 and suggests that its undervalued. I was born in the Great Depression, when my founder moved to Arkansas and began delivering chickens. My business got a boost in World War II, as chicken wasnt among the foods being rationed and demand for it grew. Today Im a top global food company, producing about 1 in every 5 pounds of chicken, beef and pork in the U.S. My brands include Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Sara Lee, Ball Park, Wright, Aidells and State Fair. I employ more than 110,000 people, operate in more than 110 countries and rake in about $37 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Tyson Foods) Overvalued or Undervalued?QHow can beginning investors know when a stock is overvalued or undervalued? R.Y., Lancaster, Pennsylv aniaANo one can know for sure. Seasoned and savvy investors might perform discounted cash flow analyses with spreadsheets and may crunch other numbers, too, but their results will still be based on assumptions and estimates. Even great investors will disagree on the fair value of a stock.Beginners can get a rough idea of how attractive a stocks price is by comparing its current price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio with its historical P/E range over the past five to 10 years. Coca-Cola, for example, was recently trading with a P/E around 29. A glance at its P/Es past (available at morningstar.com, among other sites) shows that its average P/E over the past five years is roughly 23. That suggests that Cokes stock may be overvalued right now.Of course, theres much more to the picture. Potential investors should assess its strengths, weaknesses and competitive advantages, among other things, along with its cash, debt, profit margins and growth rates. ***QIs there a way to find out what Social Security benefits I will receive in retirement? T.N., Watertown, WisconsinAThe Social Security Administration (SSA) will mail an estimate of benefits to some folks once they turn 60. Anyone can set up an online Social Security account at ssa.gov/myaccount, which will let you review your earnings history and check your estimated future benefits at any time. This can help you plan for when you want to start collecting, as you can get bigger or smaller payments by starting your benefits later or earlier than your expected retirement age.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYbroadly expanded concessions and even dinner menus, with food and drink specials on special days, for example. Thats where the money is for theater owners, they say, since ticket sales themselves generate income primarily for the studios that make the movies and rent them to theaters in the first place. At the upscale Silverspot Cinema at Mercato in North Naples, for example, theres a Mothers Day special with limited seating and reservations required for a showing of Trilogy. For $29.99 it includes a three-course brunch with bloody Marys and/or mimosas. Theres a special kids menu, too. Silverspot also offers Mommys morning movies the first show of the day, for $7. On Terrific Tuesdays movies are $8, and a medium popcorn and soda cost $7. Theres the occasional Spaghetti Western Night for $23 that comes with a pre-movie spaghetti dinner followed by a screening of a classic spaghetti western such as Once Upon a Time in the West. Randi Emerman, Silverspots vice president of strategic planning, has a bigger vision in which promotions can become education, or even therapy of sorts. When The Wall a serious film about two soldiers who rely on a wall for survival, one on each side opens Friday, May 12, shes recruited a philanthropist to pick up the tab for 150 veterans. (See Florida Weekly film critic Dan Hudaks review of The Wall on page C15). Ms. Emerman says Silverspot promotions also include educational lectures and some activities just for fun in connection with certain screenings. We like to bring the films theatrics into the theater, too, she says. AMC theaters have upped the ante at the concession stands, with menus that include items such as chicken waffle sandwiches, and sliders and a 1.5-pound Bavarian Legend Pretzel. And brand new this month: caramel M&Ms. When you buy a large popcorn combo you get half-off a package of the new caramel M&Ms, says Ryan Noonan, public relations director for the Kansas City-based company. AMCs biggest promotion recliner seating came along starting about seven years ago. The recliner seating youre seeing in AMC theaters in Florida and now in many theaters nationwide was our initiative, Mr. Noonan says. When everybody else started doing that too, he adds, AMC expanded to a wider range of food and beverage options, from menu options to dine-in theater where moviegoers can tap a button at their seat and summon a server for food and drink One more thing, says Mr. Noonan, whose company has theaters in all Florida Weekly markets: Weve focused on an increase in the premium experience. We have more I-MAX theaters than anybody in North America, and weve recently partnered with Dolby to roll out Dolby AMC, with a Dolby Vision laser projector and Dolby sound so when theres an explosion on screen When theres an explosion on screen its not just blockbuster season, its blockBOOMbuster season, apparently.A look backIt wasnt always this way. Bill Kilpatrick, a Cape Coral-based writer who grew up during the Great Depression, recalls one of the most compelling summer promotions in New York Citys Shubert Theatre in the 1930s was ice huge blocks of it transported in from upstate and positioned in the back so electric fans could blow air across it, thus cooling off moviegoers who had come in from the sweltering heat of the city. After Mr. Kilpatrick returned home from World War II, he worked as a movie promoter. When Joseph E. Levine produced his first Embassy Pictures film, Hercules, in 1957, his plan was to promote the hell out of it and then release it blockbuster fashion that is, simultaneously in theaters nationwide, Mr. Kilpatrick recalls. Accordingly, he said out loud and in skillfully written press releases (with Mr. Kilpatricks light-footed prose much in evidence) that he would spend a million dollars advertising the movie, and to prove it he had us set up a press party at New Yorks Plaza Hotel. Displayed in the lobby and watched over like hawks by armed guards was a transparent box (Plexiglass) containing stacks of real greenbacks adding up to a million dollars, which in those days was hot stuff. I mean, who had ever even seen a million dollars in cold cash? As a promotion alone, the effort resulted in stellar success. Hercules hit theaters at the height of the blockbuster season, on July 22, 1957. In the greater New York area alone it opened in 145 theaters, Mr. Kilpatrick remembers. Preceding it was a full-page ad in color in Life magazine. Similar pre-release ads appeared in newspapers and magazines, again nationwide. And Mr. Levine went on to become a millionaire and an authentic movie mogul.

MONEY & INVESTINGU.S. must heed the lesson of Puerto Ricos massive debt, bankruptcyWith all the amazing advances scientists are making around the world, one, which has seemingly been left out, is time travel. It has been 50 years since Albert Einstein developed theories on this subject, yet it seems we are no closer to jumping into a Delorean and being able to meet your great-greatgreat grandchildren. I guess our brightest scientists have been too busy focusing on developing artificial intelligence, which will predict which YouTube video I would be most likely to click on, or a smart phone camera which will make me look like a supermodel. Luckily for us, however, the island territory of Puerto Rico has enabled all of us to jump forward in time and see the likely future of the U.S. financial markets. Puerto Rico filed a form of bankruptcy after years of struggling under debt payments that it could not hope to repay. So how did Puerto Rico get to this place and what does it foretell about the U.S. financial markets? For decades, the economy of Puerto Rico was robust. First, it had a healthy tourism revenue stream with worldclass beaches and hotels attracting people from all over the globe. And second, the island attracted multi-national corporations and manufacturing facilities because of the special tax-exempt status of the territory. But things started to go south for Puerto Rico in the 1990s. First, Congress changed the tax laws, which eliminated the tax benefits for the territory. This caused many manufacturing facilities, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, to leave the island. Thousands of jobs disappeared. Then the Great Recession 10 years later dramatically cut tourist and development dollars from flowing into the territory. Unfortunately, the government of Puerto Rico did not react well. No politician wants to cut services and those on the island were no exception. Despite the massive loss of revenue and jobs, the government made the decision to maintain its spending. To bridge the revenue shortfall, it started to borrow heavily. But despite massive government spending, it could not make up for the thousands of private sector job losses and the economy contracted year after year. Without opportunity, tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans left their home and moved to the U.S. mainland. Most of these people were its most wealthy, skilled and educated, which put further pressure on the economy. Today, unemployment in Puerto Rico is over 60 percent. With declining revenue and ballooning debt, of course Puerto Ricos finances were unsustainable. The government did everything it could to meet its obligations including even under-funding its pension obligations to its retired workers just so it could pay basic services like its electric bills and police salaries. But the house of cards fell and the islands governor invoked a form of bankruptcy, called Promessa, which deals with insolvent territories. It did so to prevent its bondholders from suing the island for immediate repayment of debt which it had no hope of repaying. Puerto Ricos bankruptcy is the largest U.S. municipal bankruptcy by a huge magnitude. The previous record holder was Detroits $18 billion bankruptcy in 2013. Puerto Rico has over $120 billion in debt. The pain of this insolvency will be spread among many groups. Bondholders, including many retirees who enjoyed Puerto Ricos tax-free interest payments, will almost certainly lose some of their principal in a restructuring. But the real losers will be the people of Puerto Rico. With no ability to borrow more money, the government will be forced to cut services to the bare bone. This will push the island into an even greater economic and population decline. In addition, many anticipate that the government pensions will never be fully funded, depriving those retired of money they earned. Clearly, the painful and terrible events in Puerto Rico are a warning to us all. When economic events in a country change, it is the governments job to adapt and not just placate the population with a head in the sand approach. Just like Puerto Rico, the U.S. government is faced with massive underfunded entitlements and revenues that do not come close to matching its spending obligations. And while things are fine for now, we do not have a time machine to know what event can start a chain of reactions that can put us all in serious financial turmoil. The time to act is now.

B12 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSold: Celine Dions Jupiter Island home for $38.5 million WWW.TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMAfter being placed on the market almost four years ago, the Jupiter Island waterpark home built by Celine Dion and her husband, Renee Angelil, has just sold. Celine and Renee purchased the 5-acre lot in 2008 for $7 million and began building the Bahamian-inspired mansion in 2010. Within its 20,000 square feet there are 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and a golf simulator. Multiple expansive glass walls allow for wide views of the waterfront property that includes tennis courts and a guesthouse. The property earned its waterpark home moniker thanks to a lavish pool system that requires 500,000 gallons of water and includes two swimming pools, two water slides, a lazy river, water cannons and a tree house. After starting her Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas and with Renees illness in 2013, it was not possible for Celine to get much use out of the home. The home was initially introduced at $72 million in 2013 and went through several price cuts from $72 million to $62.5 million to $45.5 million before its final sale price of $38.5 million. Sothebys International in Florida and Canada arranged the sale and though the new owners have not yet been identified, it is believed that they will be using the property as a vacation home.

Written in 1791 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and with a libretto by Emanuel Shickenader, the opera is about Prince Taminos quest to rescue the imprisoned Princess Pamina with the help of a magic flute. The pair undergoes several rites of initiation, both together and separately, learning different lessons along the way and mastering the virtues of courage, virtue and wisdom. Its a good old-fashioned showdown between good and evil with a fantastical kick thats sure to keep kids rapt through all three acts and introduce them to the wonder of grand opera.

Lee. University Press of Florida. 272 pages. Hardcover, $24.95. Though its main purpose lies elsewhere, Bob H. Lees vivid treatment of the life of game wardens underscores the fact that Florida has been impressively dedicated to the stewardship of natural resources. Across the Sunshine State, smaller and larger preserves some quite enormous protect the habitat of wildlife. While Mr. Lees book enables us to visit stunning (and sometimes scraggly) locations, his focus is on the people who work for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A combination of two previous agencies, FWC has more than 800 conservation law enforcement officers and another 1,300 additional employees. The conservation officers and investigators (game wardens) have full police powers and statewide jurisdiction. From the tales Mr. Lee has collected, readers will learn that this is no job for the timid. There are bad guys out there illegally killing or capturing wildlife for profit. They are often skilled, sometimes organized into gangs and always ready to take enormous risks to satisfy their greed or their addiction to the thrill of violence. In 17 chapters, the book offers a variety of stories illustrating the skills and courage of FWC game wardens. Although sometimes the main business is to wait in hiding while anticipating the actions of lawbreakers, most often the stories are brimming with confrontations and high-stakes action. Among the earlier narratives is the fascinating story of Eastern Airlines Flight #401 as it streaked downward into the Florida Everglades marshlands on Dec. 29, 1972, taking the lives of 101 people. The author tracks the ensuing discovery of the wrecked plane by an airboatdriving young warden, Gray Leonhard, along with his role in the compromised rescue operation. It was Mr. Leonhards first experience of such a disaster. His long game warden career included hundreds of search-and-rescue operations in which the FWC assisted other law enforcement and rescue agencies. There are more airboat chases in the book than airboat rescue missions. Whatever the vehicle, game wardens need to foil criminal actions such as deer and turkey poaching, gill netting operations and more. Confrontations with alligators, snakes and other dangerous species are also part of a game wardens work. Alligator skins and snake skins are profitable commodities, and there are laws governing the harvesting of these money-makers that wardens must enforce. My favorite chapters include Kissimmee Marsh Airboat Chase, Sky Poachers, Gill-netters in the Dark and The Critter Catcher. Readers most likely will have their own favorites. The perpetrators do not give up easily, as Mr. Lees rogues gallery of offenders makes clear. They enjoy a very special version of living off the land that sees the web of conservation laws as an infringement on their freedom. Mr. Lee gives his readers many examples of this attitude by recreating conversations between the offenders and the wardens. He has a wonderful knack for capturing speech patterns and other tools of characterization. That same skill for characterization empowers his portraits of the wardens and investigators whose stories he tells. Hero or villain, Mr. Lee turns his subjects into unforgettable characters. Because of his long experience in the conservation enforcement business, he is utte rly convincing. His observations radiate authenticity, and he effectively conveys his sophisticated knowledge base about the law, the Everglades and other protected habitats, the creatures, the criminal mind and the skill sets of conservation professionals. Once you get into this book, you wont be able to put it down. Readers of Mr. Lees new book will also enjoy his earlier Backcountry Lawman: True Stories from a Florida Game Warden (2013) from the same publisher. Mr. Lee lives with his wife, Karen, on 18 acres next to a secluded lake in south Putnam County. In his 30-year career before retiring as an FWC lieutenant, Mr. Lee saw it all. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 11-17, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY pieces. This lighthearted look at whats to come from now through July begins with the current Gods of the Box Office, Marvel Studios, and ends with, of all people, Al Gore. Already showingGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) seeks his father with the help of the Guardians and an awesome soundtrack in this sequel to the breakout 2014 hit. The original is better, largely because this is narratively flawed, but darn if the action and visual effects arent tremendous fun. When I first heard director James Gunn added five post-credit scenes I thought theyd be excessive, but at the screening I couldnt get enough. OPENING MAY 12King Arthur: Legend of the Sword On one hand, its another King Arthur movie. On the other hand, its a Guy Ritchie flick, and if he can breathe life into Sherlock Holmes, imagine what he might do with the folklore here. Snatched Goldie Hawn returns to the big screen for the first time since The Banger Sisters (2002) alongside Amy Schumer in this comedy. The trailers dont look that funny, but Ms. Schumer is talented and we know how great Ms. Hawn can be. Or was. MAY 19Alien: Covenant Prometheus (2012) was a mess, so heres hoping Alien director Ridley Scott is back on track to keeping the franchise relevant. MAY 26Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Oh, god, another one? Rumor has it this is more of a personal journey for Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), which just might help us give a damn. Baywatch The TV show gets big-screen treatment with Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and scores of other hotties. Expect big, dumb action and explosions involving pretty people trying to avoid the worst catastrophe of all: something happening to their faces. JUNE 2Wonder Woman Its an origin story that shows how Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) got to Earth. Please, Patty Jenkins (Monster), salvage what you can of the DC Comics Extended Universe. Dont let Zack Snyder (Batman v. Superman) ruin it for all of us. JUNE 9The Mummy Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned thousands of years ago. When an ancient princess is awakened from her tomb, the end of the world is nigh. Its up to Tom Cruise to save the day. This is Universals attempt to get its Monsters Universe thriving, which perhaps explains why Russell Crowes character is Dr. Henry Jekyll. The Hero Sam Elliott plays as an aging Western movie star looking to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Krysten Ritter) and get one last great role. Laura Prepon and Nick Offerman also star. JUNE 16Cars 3 It probably isnt your favorite Pixar franchise (ahem, Toy Story), but the trailer made this look like a serious sports drama as racecar Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) gets in a horrible accident. Intriguing. Rough Night Its a bawdy female comedy starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon and Zoe Kravitz at a bachelorette party in Miami with a dead male stripper. Girls have been bad at bachelorette parties before, but this cast cant help but get you excited. The Book of Henry Director Colin Treverrows follow-up to the box officesmashing Jurassic World is notably different in terms of tone and scope, but it might be a better movie. Naomi Watts stars as a single mother to precocious Henry (Jacob Tremblay, Room), and together they expose their neighbor (Dean Norris) for doing bad things.SUMMERFrom page 1

Oh yeah: The four franchise movies have earned more than $1.3 billion domestically since Transformers bowed in July 2007, so expect more of the same bigger, louder, boom! that director Michael Bay does so well. JUNE 28Baby Driver The buzz on this film, written and directed by Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz), is through the roof. Its about a getaway driver whose music becomes the soundtrack to the action scenes, and word is its an absolute blast. Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Lily James and Jamie Foxx star. JUNE 30Despicable Me 3 Gru (Steve Carell) reunites with his long-lost brother Dru (Carell, again) to stop a 1980s-obsessed villain (Trey Parker). To their credit, it seems like Illumination Entertainment is trying to appeal to adults as well as kids. But that doesnt mean the Minions wont play a prominent role. The House Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are two of the funniest people alive. Seeing them start an illegal casino in their basement to fund their daughters college? Yes, please. JULY 7 SpiderMan: Homecoming The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps truckin along Now our new SpiderMan (Tom Holland) gets his own movie, with Michael Keaton as the villainous Vulture and Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) trying to keep Spidey out of the Avengers. A Ghost Story Casey Affleck follows his Oscarwinning turn in Manchester By The Sea with this creepy ghost/ love story in which a ghost in a white sheet follows people around. That sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon, but the trailer looks like a heartbreaking drama. Keep two eyeholes poked in the sheet for this one. JULY 14War for the Planet of the Apes Whats remarkable about this sequel is that ape Caesar (Andy Serkis), in addition to leading his army against dumb humans, is also studying for his Ph.D. in international diplomacy. JULY 21Dunkirk Director Christopher Nolans (Inception) take on the famous WWII battle stars Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance. Mr. Nolans movies usually end up among the best of the year, so Im looking forward to this one. JULY 28The Dark Tower Years in the making, this adaptation of Stephen Kings best-selling novel stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in a not-so all right all right world that needs to be saved. The movie has to at least be better than my lame all right all right joke, right? Atomic Blonde Its a Cold War spy game set in Berlin with Charlize Theron as a buttkicking British secret agent. The fighting and action were so intense that Ms. Theron broke two front teeth and needed reconstructive surgery. An Inconvenient Sequel This follow-up to the Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth (2006) touches on where climate change stands today. Nothing says summer movie season like an Al Gore PowerPoint!

But since its Mothers Day, I want to write about the person who continues to inspire my collecting my mother. When she married my dad in the early 1960s, Grandma gave her treasures that had been passed down from both of my mothers grandmothers quilts, cut-glass bowls, linens that bore my mothers monogram, antique furniture and the like. Grandma, wise woman she was, said everyone needed to have at least one nice thing in their homes. Grandma gave her many. My mother, Martha, treasured those pieces, which inspired her to begin a lifetime of collecting antiques. Grandma, who graduated high school in 1932, took college-prep classes, all the while knowing she probably never would advance her education, because the Great Depression meant there was no money to send her to school. So, a quarter-century later, she encouraged my mother and my aunt to go to college. Both received their bachelors in education in the 1960s from the University of Florida. My mother later juggled raising three kids and tending to my dad, who had issues of his own, while pursuing her masters degree in education. A few years later, she drove back and forth each Tuesday night from Fort Myers to Boca Raton to get her guidance counseling certification at Florida Atlantic University. The 1970s and early s were a busy time for her. And in her downtime, she loved to shop for vintage treasures. Weekends might find us driving to Cape Coral, Naples or Sarasota to see antiques shops and shows. A trip to visit family in Georgia or Indiana ensured a stop or 10 at flea markets, where she could add to her growing scott SIMMONS email@example.com COLLECTORS CORNER COURTESY PHOTOMartha Simmons inspired a love of collecting in her son, Scott. thirdstreetsouth.com 239.434.6533 Discover a Dozen Glorious Restaurants and CafesOver 50 Unique and Sophisticated Shops and GalleriesGracious Strolls amidst Abundant Flowers, Fountains and Courtyards!Gather Your Best Friends and Come to the Most Charm Filled Neighborhood of All 2700 IMMOKALEE ROAD, NAPLES 239.597.5013 RUSTYSRAW.COMLaid Back & Local! $8.95 FISH FRYFRIDAY CRISPY FRESH HADDOCK Served with lemon, tartar, homestyle fries & coleslaw.

The skinny: I had driven home to Fort Myers for the day to take my mother to lunch for her birthday. She suggested we might stop at some shops along the way home to see if I could find something to write about. I was doing my second pass through the housewares at Goodwill when my mom spotted these candlesticks. Could those be something? she asked. As it turns out they are. Theyre 19th century silver-gilt sticks designed to hold the Shabbat candles on a Friday. Made by the Polish firm of Jakubowski & Jarra, they bear a motif of grapes to symbolize the wine. A gold wash lends luster and deters tarnish. Knowing what Polands Jews went through during the Second World War, I ponder the history of these candlesticks. How did they come to America? Did their original owners survive the war? Those questions add a layer of depth to the pieces that goes beyond lighting a Sabbath. THE FIND:A pair of antique Shabbat candlesticks cranberry glass and doll collections. That in turn sparked a love of history and antiques for me, and its now one of my main passions. My mother retired five years ago after a 46-year teaching career. Shell very proudly tell you she received glowing evaluations until the end. But retirement has given her more opportunities to expand her knowledge and indulge her love of antique dolls. At an age when most people are downsizing, shes rethinking her collections of dolls and glassware, editing and coming up with ways to make her treasures shine. Nothing puts a spring in her step like helping me out when Ive set up at an antiques show. It gives her an opportunity to upgrade her collection and the friendships we both have made along the way are priceless. As I write this, she and a group of friends are in Boston attending a regional doll convention. Shes still growing, still learning and still inspiring. After all, a mothers job is to nurture and inspire. For that, I give her an A+. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY AUTHENTIC RECIPES.

Though Father Thomas claims hes not afraid of anything, he eventually names some things he finds scary, including: Republicans, cancer, elephants being slaughtered, terrorism and fanaticism. But the mysterious man who visits the priest at the rectory in the middle of the night has another list, with things that are more personal, including failure and a mothers disappointment. These two characters in Noli Timere (Dont Be Afraid) raise some interesting questions. The play by Jared Michael Delaney is the latest winner in Theatre Conspiracys New Play Contest, now in its 17th year. Unfortunately, the playwright was unable to attend this world premiere and talkback, as is the custom, as hes currently performing in another play out of state. So the opening night audience was unable to get his take on the play and receive more insight. (Director Bill Taylor did tell me that the play is based on stories the playwrights uncle told him.) Noli Timere is a short play, less than 90 minutes long with no intermission, but makes up for its brevity with intensity. Dark and mysterious, its filled with shadows, both literal and figurative. The music and sound effects are haunting and spooky, the set minimal, with two chairs and a lone floor lamp. Three stone gothic arches suggest the church setting. Father Thomas (Thomas Marsh) is dozing in a chair, Bible clutched to his chest, when a man (Ken Johnson) pounds on the door of the rectory at 3 a.m. The man is dressed in a suit, presentable, but his tie is askew and hes agitated. He claims to be possessed. Mr. Johnson does an excellent job as the confused man and also the one possessing him, though I wish he were even more sinister in some scenes. The play alternates scenes in the rectory with scenes from the past, mostly played with Father Thomas and his sister, Mary (Dena Galyean). The two sparkle as siblings whose parents have died; theyre the only family left for each other. Their bantering and conversation is right on target: the easiness they have with each other, the shorthand in conversation and shared memories, the insults given as forms of affection. Ms. Galyean gives lots of attitude; she can do no wrong in this play and lightens things up considerably every time she walks out. Theyre an odd couple, these siblings. Shes a foul-mouthed party girl with a string of failed romances, while hes a priest. But its initially a little confusing exactly why Thomas became a priest. In one scene from the past he proclaims, Im going to be a priest, not a Christian. The playwright has penned some great lines. When Father Thomas describes a man wearing wrap-around black glasses The kind you wear when youve had eye surgery, he says his sister, understanding, replies, Like Bono glasses, but not cool. Theres also a Led Zeppelin joke. Its been said the devils greatest deception is making people believe he doesnt exist or, if they do, believe that hes some little cartoon character with horns and a pitchfork. Noli Timere might make you rethink your belief in whether he exists. The action builds sl owly, per haps a little too slowly in the beginning for some, with puzzle pieces falling into place as the play progresses. Yet its also ambiguous enough to invite different interpretations. Those recently bereaved might not want to attend, as part of the plot deals with the death of Thomas and Marys mother, whom Mary refers to as a super Catholic. Though some of the characters are Roman Catholic, Noli Timere is more about good and evil, how evil thrives on fear and doubt and deeds done in darkness, while goodness embraces the light and is filled with love. Which path we choose is up to us, the play seems to suggest. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Noli Timere (Dont Be Afraid)>> Who: Theatre Conspiracy >> When: Through May 20 >> Where: The Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers >> Cost: $24 ($11 for students) >> Info: 939-2787 or www.ArtinLee.org/Theatre TOM HALL / FLORIDA WEEKLY Ken Johnson as The Man and Thomas Marsh as Father Thomas.

Now its up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more sl owly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldnt be a life-long obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majestys domain. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by months end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and dont get involved. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, youre up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesnt allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A stubborn refusal to go ahead on a project mystifies colleagues who expected more flexibility. But once you explain your position, theyll understand and even applaud you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama.

When declarer cannot do anything to overcome the unfortunate happenstance, he can rightly attribute the outc ome to bad luck, but in more than a few cases, Dame Fortune might not be the true culprit. Consider this deal where South reached four spades and, after viewing dummy, thought he was merely playing for overtricks. He ruffed the heart lead in dummy, crossed to the ace of spades, ruffed a second heart and led a club to the jack. All that remained was to draw trumps and run the clubs to finish with all 13 tricks, but when declarer next cashed the king of spades and East showed out, the contract itself was suddenly in jeopardy. South did the best he could by cashing the queen of spades and then playing clubs, discarding a heart on the third club, but West ruffed, and the defenders still had to get a heart and two diamonds for down one. Declarer was certainly unlucky to find the opposing cards divided as they were, but had he taken one simple precaution, 11 tricks would have fallen right into his lap. Before barging ahead with the play, he should have stopped to ask himself what, if anything, could be done to neutralize the one threat to the contract a bad trump break. To guard against this possibility, when the trump is led from dummy at trick two and East follows low, South should finesse the ten! If the ten wins, he can proceed as before, scoring all the tricks. But if, as in the actual deal, the ten loses to the jack, declarer is still in complete control. No matter what West does next, declarer is sure to finish with at least 11 tricks.

FILM CAPSULESGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista) Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Mr. Pratt) wonders who his real father is as he and the Guardians once again save the galaxy. The 2014 original was better largely because this is narratively flawed, but darn if the action and visual effects arent tremendous fun. Rated PG-13.The Dinner (Steve Coogan, Richard Gere, Laura Linney) Paul (Mr. Coogan), his brother Stan (Mr. Gere) and their wives (Ms. Linney and Rebecca Hall) meet for dinner in a posh restaurant to discuss a crime their sons committed. The plot keeps getting interrupted with backstory and only occasionally moves forward, which is a problem when trying to build drama. Rated R. Free Fire (Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley) In a Boston warehouse in 1978, a misunderstanding leads to a shoot-out between gunrunners. The story is thin and the characters are one-dimensional, but thats forgivable. Whats not forgivable is the ho-hum, repetitive action. Rated R.The Lost City of Z (Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller) In the early 1900s, British explorer Percy Fawcett (Mr. Hunnam) leaves his family behind to search for what he believes is an undiscovered city. Mr. Pattinson plays his right-hand man, and Ms. Miller is Percys long-suffering wife. Its a bit bloated at 141 minutes, but the performances are strong and it tells an epic story in an intriguing way. Rated PG-13.Frantz (Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Anton von Lucke) In Germany shortly after The Great War, a stranger (Mr. Niney) appears at the gravesite of a grieving womans (Ms. Beer) fiance (Mr. Lucke, seen in flashbacks), and he intends to get to know the fiances family. Tense drama whose supposed resolution comes in the middle, leading to an intriguing and unexpected second half. Rated PG-13.Gifted (Chris Evans, Jenny Slate, Mckenna Grace) After her mother dies, a 7-yearold math prodigy (Ms. Grace) is the subject of a custody battle between her uncle (Mr. Evans) and grandmother (Lindsay Duncan). 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.

YesWe occasionally forget that movies dont need globetrotting escapades, emotional histrionics or lavish visuals to soar on the big screen. Sometimes the simplest premise can yield the greatest drama. All a movie really needs, as The Wall reminds us, is quality writing, sturdy directing and solid performances. A soldier. A wall. A sniper. Thats the core of this gripping war drama set in 2007 Iraq. American soldiers Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Shane Matthews (John Cena) are on a 20-hour stakeout monitoring a cobbled, crumbling wall they erroneously believe is hiding a sniper. All they can see are dead security guards and contractors who were working on an oil pipeline. Nothings happening. Bored, hungry, tired and convinced no one is there, Shane emerges from his camouflaged post in the desert and heads toward the murder site. On his way, hes shot. Allen follows and is shot as well, but is able to make it behind the aforementioned crumbling wall and out of the snipers line of fire. But his radio is down, his water supply is (literally) shot and hes bleeding out. The only thing keeping him company is the voice of the Iraqi sniper (Laith Nakli) taunting him in his earpiece. Whats impressive here is whats not shown. Screenwriter Dwain Worrells script never veers from the showdown at hand; there are no cutaways to Allen at home or his estranged family/friends, no shots of other military brass racing to get there and not even any shots of the Iraqi sniper himself. The most we get are point-of-view shots through the snipers rifle, which heightens the sense of danger and concern we feel for Allen. This creative approach is a change of pace for director Doug Liman, whose Edge of Tomorrow (2014), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) and The Bourne Identity (2002) all were high-octane, multifaceted action thrillers. Keeping the film contained and one-dimensionally focused allows the audience to remain in the moment, and with no distractions the suspense only increases as the film progresses. By the end youre glad its only 81 minutes; the story doesnt need more time, and the tension becomes a lot to bear. Credit also goes to the actors: Mr. Nakli is a menacing force as the voice of the sniper, and Mr. Cena plays a tough guy but its more nuanced and human than his pro wrestling alter ego. The real standout, however, is Mr. TaylorJohnson, a recent Golden Globe winner for Nocturnal Animals who spends most of the film alone on screen. Not all actors can carry a film the way he does here: We know Allen is hurting, and one false move means hes dead, yet we never tire of his ingenuity in discerning the snipers location and fortitude to survive. This is no-frills filmmaking at its finest tense, unrelenting, and endlessly captivating. Its mostly void of political commentary and theres no musical score, and thats fine because The Wall doesnt need either. At its most basic and brutal level, war is about strangers killing each other, and in many ways thats all that needs to be captured. Director Liman, cinematographer Roman Vasyanov (Fury, 2014) and editor Julia Bloch (Green Room, 2015) have crafted a tense, captivating movie-going experience that you will not soon forget. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> After scouting locations all over the world, lming for The Wall was completed in 14 days in northern Los Angeles.

Alongside a full orchestra, the audience will be treated to full-scale production qualities in costumes, lighting effects and moving projections that portray a mystical land between the sun and moon where Tamino and Pamina battle it out against the forces of evil that would keep them apart. Its whimsical fantasy and a feast for the eyes, Ms. Summers promises. The opera is performed in German. Three youngsters from Opera Naples student apprentice program Clara Marti-Garro, 12; Lucia Marti-Garro, 9; and Alex Dimaras, 11 have been practicing with Director of Educational Outreach and Chorus Master Robin Shuford Frank for months developing the chops to keep up with adult performers tenor Francisco Corujo (Tamino) and soprano Pureum Jo (Pamina) in a foreign language. The children sing three-part harmony in four scenes as spirit guides to Tamino. These three happen to be just very advanced, or we would never have cast them in these roles, Ms. Frank says, adding they already have sung in Latin and French with the Opera Naples childrens chorus. She introduced them to The Magic Fl ute with a cartoon version of the opera and started in on the German simply with pronunciation and some plot coaching until they were able to have a firm grip on the plot, their place in it and what they were singing about. They have some pretty important roles and interactions with the characters, she adds. Finishing the season with a highspirited family show is the note Opera Naples wanted to go out on, Ms. Summers says. The Magic Flute is a great opportunity to get families into the theater for a taste of what Opera Naples has to offer them. The organization kicked off the 2017 season with Puccinis Turandot. I think basically we decided to put a Top 10 opera on each side of the season, Ms. Summers adds. Aside from quality musical productions, Opera Naples offers training and performance opportunities for local youth who have a passion for singing and want to pursue it. Usually the ones that are attracted to the program do have some musical training, but weve definitely had kids who came to us just to sing, Ms. Frank says. So we take them in with open arms and start working with them. In addition to Mr. Corujo and Ms. Jo as Tamino and Pamina, the cast includes soprano So Young Park as Queen of the Night and bass-baritone Burak Bilgili as Sarastro.

HAPPY CELEBRITY EXTRATaylor Cole has role for Hallmark Channel BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Ive been hooked on The Originals since it began. I especially like the actress who plays Sofya. Can you tell me a bit about her? What else can I see her in? Barry T., via emailA : Taylor Cole is the model-turned-actress who plays the ancient vampire/hired killer Sofya Voronova in the CW drama. When Cole isnt playing a character hell-bent on revenge against Klaus for killing her family 500 years ago, shes portraying an art professor at Boston College whos aching to make tenure in the Hallmark Channel original movie called The Art of Us (which premieres May 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT). Dr. Harper Collins (played by Cole) has a short time to mold a handsome artist who happens to be her dog walker into the star painter of her recently curated art gallery at the college. I spoke with Cole recently about this contrasting character (at least from what we are used to in The Originals), and she was thrilled to get the chance to play Harper, telling me: Everything about her is me. Im very black-and-white and very structured. I need to let loose a little more, and shes the same way. Shes a character I havent gotten to play yet. Shes very driven and shes passionate. Her determination to follow through was really exciting to play. Q: Can you tell me when the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie comes out? Paul F., Jasper, Wyo.A: Prepare yourself for more rumsoaked swashbuckling from Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters May 26. Lucky Disneyland parkgoers got a sneak peek back in April when Depp got into full Capt. Jack gear on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, surprising and delighting people on the ride as they drifted past on their boats. Q: This sounds too good to be true: Is Roseanne really getting a reboot? Kelly F., via FacebookA: Everyones favorite blue-collar family is indeed coming back for an eight-episode limited series and everyone is on board for the revival (although its not known which Becky well be getting). Details are sketchy, since its still in the beginning stages of development, but look for the series to premiere in 2018, which happens to be the 30th anniversary of the pilot episode.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of past restaurant reviews: Coastal Peruvian Seafood & Grill, 5477 Airport-Pulling Road N., Naples; 631-6943 This lovely restaurant provides a refreshing space in which to dine on exceptionally good food. Owners Chris and Fabiola Santos are hospitable and helpful as they introduce guests to their menu. Of the various ceviche variations, we enjoyed the Ceviche 200 Miles, a sprightly blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, fish, red onions, sweet potato and corn that had a bite but wasnt fiery hot. Marina sliders held fried red snapper fillets topped with aji amarillo-pineapple chimichurri on firm, yeasty minibuns. The Poseidon Fest was a montage of seafood cooked in the restaurants Josper oven, which renders proteins crisp outside, juicy within. And the Savage Tacu Tacu was a great rendition of rice and lentil pancakes with a tender skirt steak and sweet plantains. For dessert: the chocolucuma, a pie with an Oreo crumb crust, middle of caramelflavored lucuma and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 MidTown Kitchen + Bar, 2110 Ninth St. N., Naples; 908-6558 Veteran restaurateur Michael Hernandez has created yet another inviting establishment. The hip MidTown Kitchen + Bar is much like his HobNob Kitchen, but with a parking lot and outside the confines of Old Naples. Whether you want to sit in the bar, at big booths in the dining room, outside or at a communal table, its all there along with a staff of well-trained servers to deliver beverages and a goodly assortment of small and large plates that run the gamut from virtuously vegetarian to confirmed carnivore. Coldwater black mussels with spicy curry, lemongrass and coconut milk could have been warmer but were tasty nonetheless, served with pita triangles for sopping up the delicious sauce. Crispy chicken thighs with cashews and kung pao sauce were also good. The vegetarian plate featured faro, roasted Brussels sprouts, baby bok choy, carrots and sweet potatoes. Even meat lovers would enjoy this hearty platter. The $28 lobster roll was pricey but large and delicious, served with sweet potato fried sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2016 Moura Bistro, Meridian Marketplace, 3369 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 738-8883 This cozy little bistro offers the flavors of Lebanon and the Mediterranean: hummus, kibbeh, shawarma, kebabs, falafel and such. Vegetarians and meat lovers alike will find plenty on which to feast. Both the smoky baba ghannoush dip and the spinach pie were great starters. Platters of shawarma chicken and falafel came piled high. The chicken had a great smoky flavor and spicy mayo for dipping while the crisp falafel came with creamy tahini and garlic potatoes. The baklava had just enough honey but not so much that it drowned out the nuts and pastry. On Friday and Saturday night, theres a belly dancer providing entertainment. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Rodizio Grill, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago Drive, Estero; 498-0018 The latest dining addition at Coconut Point re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-can-eat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding 3-foot skewers and scary looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, one of which is that you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. We sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items including some exquisitely tender hearts. The tritip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Bacon-wrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 7th Avenue Social, 849 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 231-4553 There are a lot of Naples restaurants that offer great food, but few do it with the fun and funky vibe that 7th Avenue Social has achieved under owner Colin Estrem. The menu features innovative cocktails, house-made pickles, conch sliders, smoked fish mac and cheese, fish or barbacoa tacos, pineapple upside down cake and a host of other goodies. Stop in for drinks and relax in the eclectic collection of chairs clustered near the entrance or dine at a table where a couch (with pillows) provides two of the seats. I loved the pickles, a chile verde pork taco, the mac and cheese and the somewhat sloppy but satisfying Southern fried chicken wings. We shared a nightly special of yellowtail snapper encased in salt that was served tableside with white asparagus, crisp yucca fries and a side of Bernaise sauce. Sunday brunch and late-night menus available, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015

My culinary adventures broadened as I matured, but these four sources of sustenance remain among my favorites even today. That said, I find all four to be in short supply in this portion of the Sunshine State a condition Id never imagined possible growing up in an area where all were ubiquitous and so I am that much more appreciative when I happen upon one that takes me back to those delicious days of my youth. While it lacks the tell-tale silverplated exterior that elicits a Pavlovian response from die-hard diner devotees like me, once inside its quickly evident that Metro Diner is the real deal. Never mind that its in a strip shopping center like most restaurants are these days. Inside it has the requisite black-and-white-tiled floor, the multitude of roomy booths, stools at the counter and the boisterous cacophony of customers enjoying hearty portions of made-from-scratch comfort fare. Biscuits and gravy, pancakes the size of dinner plates, pound cake French toast, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, meatloaf, burgers, chicken pot pie all served all day long. Dinner for breakfast? Sure. Breakfast for dinner? Thats fine, too. The servers are friendly and attentive and are happy to accommodate customers needs. I overheard a server tell customers at a nearby table that they could have a half order of grits or waffles if thats what they wanted. The diner is a chain run by Mark Davoli and his family since 2000. It started in Jacksonville and has branched out to various parts of the country. The Naples location opened in late January with additional branches planned for Bonita Springs and Cape Coral in the coming months which means no one in Southwest Florida will have to travel too far to indulge in the multitude of diner delights served here. Thats a good thing because its difficult to decide just what to eat, although items shaded on the menu are considered signature items. We began our Sunday brunch with mimosas ($4.99). There wasnt much champagne flavor or effervescence, but the orange juice was fine. From the lunch and dinner fare, we tried a mahi mahi sandwich ($11.99) and a fried chicken platter ($15.49). The mahi mahi available blackened, fried or grilled was ordered blackened and arrived with a noticeable amount of seasoning on it, although bronzed would be a more apt description than blackened. It was moist and tasty, served on a sturdy brioche bun with lettuce, tomato and remoulade, all of which tasted fresh. A crunchy, garlicky pickle spear was a nice touch. From a long list of sides, my companion chose the house-made chips and was not disappointed. They were crisp, just salty enough and had great potato flavor. My fried chicken platter was a bit intimidating. It consisted of a half chicken the leg, breast/wing and thigh all fried to a crisp, golden brown. The chicken was moist, even the breast. It came with al dente green and yellow squash that was not only cooked properly but that was also nicely seasoned. A mound of mashed red-skinned potatoes with brown gravy was also delicious. A couple of slices of average bread seemed like an afterthought. The menu says the chicken platter comes with the diners signature sweet and spicy sauce. This turned out to be pancake syrup and Louisiana hot sauce, which our server mixed at the table, then left the hot sauce so I could add more if I wanted to (which I did). The result was a sweet and tangy dipping sauce that worked well with the crunchy, slightly salty breading and chicken. For dessert we tried one of the breakfast items, whimsically named Yo Hala ($12.49). It consisted of thick slices of challah stuffed with bananas, brown sugar and cream cheese then topped with hazelnut syrup, blueberry-strawberry compote and powdered sugar. Wed expected an extremely sweet concoction, but it turned out to be only moderately sweet, with the blueberries in the compote lending a tartness that balanced it out. The creamy filling and chewy bread made for a delicious dish that worked well as a dessert. Neither of us thought wed have been able to manage a whole order on our own. As it turned out, there were only three desserts, none of which sounded all that intriguing, so this was a better choice when it came to assessing the skills of the kitchen. The manager who made a point of stopping by every table as customers finished their meals told us they had had trouble with consistency on their Key lime pie from diner to diner, so they decided to hire a commercial bakery to make the pies for them. Considering all the things the kitchen does well, this seems a minor concession. Throughout our meal our server made stops to check on us, refill water and ensure our meal was going well. Despite the fact that the season is over, the place was packed. A sign over the kitchen declares proudly: Where the locals eat. That was evident and likely to be a trend that grows as word gets out about this first-rate spot. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com >> Hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 7 a.m. to -9 p.m. Friday-Saturday >> Reservations: Not accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Breakfast, $3.99-$14.99; lunch and dinner, $5.99-$16.99 >> Beverages: Beer and wine served >> Seating: Booths, conventional tables (indoors and outside), stools at the counter >> Specialties of the house: Classic diner fare >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: www.metrodiner.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: Metro Diner, Naples Walk, 2440 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 308-0562SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYA house specialty, the fried chicken is served with mashed potatoes and veggies.

Kalea Bays first tower nears sellout Tower 2 released for saleKalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed in November, is approaching the 90 percent sold mark, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. Currently, 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. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5bath 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 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 openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. 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, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC.LAURA PARSONSClassic. Its virtually impossible to discuss interior designer Laura Parsons of Pure Design of Naples without using the term. Luxe Livings Michael Korb chats with Ms. Parsons about her style and how she approaches her craft. Q: How did you decide you wanted to be an interior designer? A: I was taught at an early age to appreciate and value beautiful things in our home. And my mother taught me the important lesson that it was better to wait for just the right piece rather than to waste my money on something I would want to replace sooner rather than later. As a teenager and into my 20s, we spent many weekends in New England going to art galleries and antique shops. I found it to be educational as well as great fun, but I truly did not realize that I wanted to be an interior designer until after college. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: I loved to draw as a child and I was fortunate enough to have private art lessons. I also was so aware of interiors no matter where I was, and I would think of how I could change or improve the space. I studied at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston Architectural Center and also Rhode Island School of Design and received a BFA in fine art SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 makes quiet elegance shine in every project Laura ParsonsROLAND SCARPA AND DANIEL NEWCOMB / COURTESY PHOTOSFor this intimate dining room, the Port Royal clients wanted understated glamour. The area is small, but makes up for lack of space with handsome millwork and ceiling details. The ceiling lines are repeated in the curved backs of dining chairs upholstered in lush chenille in a shade of vapor blue. Dining table and chairs by Dessin Fournier. Rock crystal chandelier by Niermann Weeks.

and graphic design. It was not until after I graduated, and worked as a product designer, that I realized my true love was interiors, textiles, art and antiques. That led me to the Boston Design Center, where I worked for four years before making the move to Naples in 1999. I immediately found work at a Naples design firm and branched out on my own a few years later. Q: What is the greatest challenge you face as an interior designer on any given project? A: Intuition and psychology can play a large part in the design process. Finding the harmony for couples with many different perspectives and influences is key to a successful project. Clients are my biggest muse. If the husband and wife have different design aesthetics or taste levels if he has a preference for traditional, for example, and the wife wants something totally different, thats a challenge. You have to find a common ground. Its a give and take until it works as a whole but gives both parties elements of what they want and need. Q: Whats the first thing you ask new clients? A: We always ask, How does your home need to function for you and your family? We carefully consider layers of visual and tactile interest and the narrative roots of the people who will live in the house. The designer must factor in how people really live in spaces. No project should ever be completely pristine. Ultimately, what brings a home to life is the people who inhabit it. Q: Is there a trend that you are excited to see disappear ASAP? A: Never again do I want to see homes filled with bad reproduction Mediterranean furniture, lighting and accessories. Nor do I want to see depressing interiors in saturated shades of army green and rust. Those oppressive, heavy interiors truly do not suit this region. I am interested in curated interiors and lightfilled spaces that are never overcrowded but that incorporate texture, tone and depth by way of fabrics, interesting wall and floor finishes, hand-woven area rugs and original art.

A quiet and subdued Phillip Jeffries grasscloth wraps all walls and makes the large room more inviting. Ceiling trays feature a warm, silver-leaf paper that softly reflects the light from elegant rock crystal chandeliers. The custom king bed is fully upholstered in a Cowtan and Tout chenille fabric. Ecru matelass coverlet and king shams mix with a Travers fabric for the Euro shams, and three boudoir-sized antique silk pillows add additional interest. Flanking the bed is a pair of chests by Dessin Fournier, topped by a perfect pair of 1940s table lamps the designer stumbled upon in Palm Beach. An original painting by Susan Morofsky defines the sitting area, where a pair of curved sofas from Celerie Kemble for Henredon creates a comfy place to read or nap, and custom drapery and sheers are motorized for instant privacy. Above: The owners of this Park Shore condominium wanted the study to be a cozy and calm respite away from the main living area. The color palette is in shades of citron and gray, while the walls are papered in a Phillip Jeffries grasscloth for quiet, textural interest. The sisal area rug provides another textural layer. Fabric on sofa and chairs is by Jane Churchill, while the ottomans are covered in a sumptuous suede by Edelman. Drapery panels feature a fresh cotton print by ROMO. Above: The Port Royal client wanted one of the guest rooms to be very feminine, which the designer achieved first by covering all walls in a blush wallpaper with a leaf-and-vine pattern. Full-sized headboards upholstered in a neutral linen solid create a nice balance against the softly shimmery wallpaper. Custom ivory matelass coverlets and shams feature a scalloped edge, and custom pink pillows are trimmed with petite shells. The designer found the pair of silver leaf brackets in Palm Beach. An antique French chandelier adds sparkle to the tray ceiling, and a 1950s pink Murano lamp sits atop the nightstand by Hickory Chair. At the foot of each bed, blush mohair throws hand-woven in France add to the welcoming, cozy feel. Above: Laura Parsons advice is to invest in the best mattress you can afford. On her own bed, she uses white cotton percale sheets year round, which she finds to be serene, cool and inviting. On top of that, a lightweight cotton blanket and white cotton matelass coverlet and matching shams. Embroidered queen shams in white percale are placed in front of the king matelass shams. All pillow inserts are down and feather filled. A lightweight goose down comforter folded in thirds adds volume to the foot of the bed. The comforter wears a white percale duvet cover witha vine pattern embroidered in calming shades of blue. Flanking the bed are linen-wrapped chests with matching vintage Murano opaline glass lamps.

6 LUXE LIVING MAY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe good news is that our area is awash with condos in terrific locations. The bad news is that almost all of those condos are in aging buildings and most of the units are in need of total renovation. But thats why there are still a few good deals to be had. The McComb family of Ohio were fortunate to find this two-bedroom, twobath Hickory Bay unit with spectacular views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the bay (thanks to its 11th floor placement). The building is so close to the water it has docks for residents use. Unfortunately, the McCombs unit featured most of the 1980s inside. You know: mauve paint schemes, lame tiling and a lowered plastic tray ceiling in the kitchen that made you lose your appetite. We looked at about 25 properties, says Mrs. McComb. This one is in the perfect location, and thats where we wanted to be, but inside it was very dated pink carpets, wallpaper, very closed in. All the rooms felt like you were walking into a cave. After talking with more than a dozen contractors during their search, the couple chose Greg and Theresa Ulrich of KGT Remodeling to work some magic. They wanted to bring it into this century with warm wood floors and clean, bright Shaker cabinets. They wanted to open up the kitchen and bring everything else up to date, Mr. Ulrich says about the clients wish list. And, he adds, We needed to stay within the budget. At 1,401 square feet, it wasnt a huge job. But as in most cases, quality exceeds quantity. And in this case it had to, as the McCombs are used to a beautiful 7,000-square-foot home up north. They decided to make the kitchen part of the main living area. In addition, they totally rebuilt the master bathroom, taking out the wall dividing the shower and toilet from the vanity and linen closet, installing glass walls for the shower and replacing all the tile, cabinets and surfaces. I am in love with my bathroom now, says Mrs. McComb. I just love how open it feels in there. And I would say that for the kitchen as well. Raising the ceiling and changing the configurations of the appliances and getting better cabinets made everything feel amazing. And that glass backsplash knocks it out of the park. I picked that particular tile because it reminded me of waves in the ocean, Mrs. McComb says. When I picked it out, I didnt realize it had a brown hue to it, not as an actual color, but as a shadowy brown that pulls the brown from the wood floors up and really pulls everything together. She admits having had some doubts about the project early on, however. One, she was concerned the size would become an issue. And two, being 11 stories up can take some getting used to.MAKEOVERWhats old is new againA Hickory Bay condo is reborn into a modern getawayWWW.NAPLESKENNY.COM / COURTESY PHOTOSRemoving a wall that separated the kitchen from the main living and dining area and installing warm wood floors throughout went a long way toward refreshing the 11th floor condo, whose new owner likened it to a cave when she first saw it. Just look at that view. Taking the time to renovate an older condo pays serious dividends for owners willing to put up with a little dust. This Hickory Bay units kitchen and living space has come light years from its previous state. SEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 8 Before BeforeBefore

10 LUXE LIVING MAY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORYIf youre wondering what retirement should look like, look no further PHILLIP CATES PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS Talis ParkTREASURE BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen you plan to retire early, there are few places more appealing than Naples. And when youre passionate about quality landscaping and p-o[-[upkeep, its tough to find a better neighborhood than Talis Park. At least thats how New Englanders Bob and Kathy Brown feel now that theyve built this stunning 4,122-square-foot (under air) home on Talis Parks desirable Seneca Way. The three-bedroom, 3-bath home was recently completed by Fox Builders and features a separate casita as well as a movie theater fit for a blockbuster. We have known Talis Park essentially from back when it was Tuscany Reserve, says Mr. Brown. We know three of the founding members and have always appreciated the convenience of where it is in North Naples. And, having gone through a number of communities during our home search, we were convinced that the common grounds of Talis Park were as spectacular as we have ever seen. We are both fanatic about landscaping and landscape design the orderliness of it, the neatness of it and the integrity of it. While the outside area is handled beautifully by the communitys landscaping staff, the interior of the Browns home was designed by Design Wests Kelsey Talis (no relation to the community founders). A quick glance around shows a look that isnt often used locally, but is certainly appreciated. What was interesting about the Browns is that they came down and we figured theyd want that coastal look with the light, seafoam greens that everyone is looking for in Naples, Ms. Talis says. But they really surprised us by wanting that classic Ralph Lauren-type look. Its definitely transitional, but does have those flares of the traditional vibe to it as well, You wont confuse the outdoor living space of this home with most area lanais. The Ralph Lauren vibe of the interior ows perfectly out back, where three large and distinctive gathering areas beckon family and friends.
without going over-the-top. Its a classic New England-meets-Southwest Florida style that is elegant and comfortable all at once. And the proportions are just right. Too often new construction is decorated with pieces and colors that leave a space underwhelming and feeling off. Thats certainly not the case here. We have a very large family, both in number and size, says Mr. Brown (he stands 6, two sons are 6 and a daughter is 6). So we are not a small family. And we entertain a lot, so we wanted to ensure that the back would allow for us to do that. To that end, the home features a very significant lanai with three distinct living spaces: a kitchen, a club seating area off the great room and an area off the master suite with a fireplace and entertainment area. Weve already hosted a couple of parties, one probably had 60 people and we could accommodate them very easily, Mr. Brown says. And that was with Talis Park staff, a full bar and hors doeuvres stations throughout the pool area. And as wonderful as that outdoor living space is, theres one hidden feature inside that eschews all the sunlight and palm trees that most of us came here for in the first place: a home movie theater. Because open floor plans have negated a lot of closedoff spaces in modern homes, its sometimes difficult to find a place that can be made into a media room. Ms. Talis and the Design West team turned what originally was to be a secondary garage into a professionallevel screening room. It was a great idea, the designer says. To have an area for them and the kids and their friends, its just nice to have a room like that. With tiered seating and custom acoustical wall panels, it feels like youre in an actual theater (sans the sticky floors). During the building process, Ms. Talis reached out to the Browns to find out their favorite movies and then surprised them with professional backlit movie posters. It has been a huge hit, Mr. Brown says of the screening room. We had a naval fighter pilot down who was able to watch Top Gun with us and said it brought him back a period of his life that was pretty significant for him, so its been a great place a home run. As has the separate casita, which is ideal for guests who want to be part of the weekend but still have their own space. The house is simple, but elegant, says Mr. Brown. Its tastefully done, and I think thats a reflection of the builder as well as the interior decorators. And its clearly representative of homeowners with good taste and an appreciation for the finer things in life. Lets hope they throw another party soon and an invitation shows up in our mailbox.

14 LUXE LIVING MAY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf you want another sign that Naples is moving forward in its design aesthetic, wander into Ligne Roset Naples and see a space dedicated to high-end modern design. You wont find a speck of traditional or even transitional. In fact, the store is so keen on the direction Naples is moving that it left its showroom at Miromar Design Center in order to open this 3,500-square-foot space at 99 Ninth St. S. (on the corner of Tamiami Trail and First Avenue South) approximately 18 months ago. We are now creating our own little design center in this area of Naples, says storeowner Vivian Coriatt. And Ligne Roset, being such an iconic brand, really needed to be located in the heart of Naples. It feels like a boutique setting, featuring some of the most iconic pieces from the world-renowned designers that collaborate with Ligne Roset. For those unfamiliar, Ligne Roset is a contemporary furniture brand based in France. It began making walking sticks, umbrellas and chair frames back in 1860 before focusing exclusively on furnishings in the mid-20th century. Its known for working with designers such as Michel Ducaroy, Peter Maly and Pierre Paulin. Its basically the polar opposite of the Tuscan theme that held a grip on this area for decades. I would say that in the last two to three years Naples has become much more contemporary, Ms. Coriatt says. The population in general is looking for that lighter, fresher kind of timeless contemporary product and design in their homes Theyre redoing homes they did 15 years ago, turning them contemporary. If youre looking for the iconic Togo couch or chair from Ducaroy, this is your place. Or if you prefer the world-famous Pumpkin chair by Paulin, look no further (see one on page 19). Best of all, the pieces are handcrafted by artisans at the companys factory in Briord, along the Rhone River. You wont find anything manufactured in South America or the Philippines. I think people come to Ligne Roset because they want Ligne Roset, Ms. Coriatt adds. Its just like saying I want a Mercedes so Im going to Mercedes. The brand is very well known worldwide. The quality has never been better. And the design relationships the company has are remarkable. Were talking lifetime pieces heirloom products that can be handed down from generation to generation. From sofas to bedroom and dining furniture, side chairs, workspace pieces, lighting and even rugs, the showroom is filled with things that not only will take your breath away, but that will last a lifetime. And many are available in a wide range of colors. For example, Paulins Pumpkin, which was originally designed for Madame Pompidou (wife of former French President Georges Pompidou), is an iconic design revival that can be purchased as either an arm chair, loveseat or sofa (ottoman available) in myriad of colors. Like much of Paulins pieces, it can work with virtually all design esthetics and quickly becomes a favorite of any room.
