MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYGot children?Yes, you, with the children or grandchildren. If you think the world will saunter along whistling Dixie and giving them the same waterfront Florida bliss youve come to expect, you might be right. I sure hope so, because my children are involved with yours, and all of them will have to live with our votes. A vote is a brick, unless its an ignorant vote or a nonvote, in which case its a card. Ten votes are 10 bricks or cards. Our children will either live in a house of bricks, or theyll live in a house of cards. Thats why Im ashamed by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a born-and-raised Floridian whose vote of silence in response to Americas withdrawal from the Paris Accord last week is another card in our childrens house. As of Sunday, hed still said nothing from the bully pulpit of a state likely to be one of the most deeply affected in the immediate years ahead by flooding and rising waters resulting from climate change. Sen. Bill Nelson, on the other hand, issued this statement within hours of President Trumps decision to pull America out: This is a huge mistake. Sea-level rise caused by the Earth heating up is a real threat to Florida. If the U.S. isnt going to do its part to combat climate change, then the rest of the world wont do theirs and millions of Floridians living along the coast will be at risk. The Paris Accord is two things: a political posture and a practical maneuver. As politics, it put the United States in the drivers seat, not just of the war against disastrous climate change but of trade, of shared information, of the power of nations harnessed rather than nations disjoined. It would have been a sure-fire job maker, too, many economists say. As pragmatism, the Paris Accord represents the first step in combatting a natural threat to humanity beginning to settle on the planet now in this century, at this time. The causes can be debated all day but they almost certainly include carbon emissions from fossil fuels. Only the woefully ignorant believe climate change is not real. Even Sen. Rubio, closely allied to such deep-pocket resistors of climate-change action as the Koch Brothers, should know that and have the courage and temerity to speak. He doesnt, apparently. Its harder to have courage when a couple of Kansas billionaires whose money buys elections own refineries that can process 600,000 barrels of crude oil per day and operate 4,000 miles of pipelines to move it, as The New York Times has reported. No different drummer for him; the Florida senator from West Miami has marched to the beat of carbon champions for years. He voted for the Keystone Pipeline in 2012, he voted to exempt infrastructure damage by natural disasters from environmental reviews in 2014, he co-sponsored a resolution to exempt electric utilities from EPA carbon emission guidelines in 2015, the same year he called the Paris Accord an unfunny joke, and this year he voted for Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Secretary Pruitt is a climate-science denier. And Sen. Rubio still appears to believe everythings OK, in 2017. What a privilege for living Americans to be the haves instead of the have-nots in the world: to have new cars when we want them, new clothes each season, fresh fruit and vegetables in January or July, vacations on the beach or in the mountains every summer. And to have a world that stands in awe of the United States, even when it sometimes resents us. But Marco Rubio, who turned 46 at the end of May, has taken all that for granted with his silence, perhaps because hes forgotten the roots and the reasoning of his privilege and ours. Whether you vote for Democrats, Republicans, Aliens or Nobodies, taking it for granted has been a 70-year luxury relying on a warranty of sorts: long-range, full-body protection from any major challenges to the American Dream, established beginning just after World War II. That catastrophic event dragged us reluctantly into a new world we turn away from now only at our own deep peril. Right off the bat, we secured the American Dream with the Marshall Plan, named for then Secretary of State and formerly General of the Army George C. Marshall, who introduced the idea at a Harvard University commencement speech 70 years ago this month. A Democrat was in the White House (Harry Truman), Republicans controlled the Congress, and the Marshall Plan had bipartisan support all the way down the line. In a four-year period starting in 1948 we gave $13 billion, the equivalent of almost $190 billion today, to European countries. By 1951, historians report, every country that received money from the Marshall Plan friends and former enemies alike showed outputs at least 35 percent higher than any had in 1938, before World War II. Under a separate plan we pumped money into Asia as well, including Japan, all of it leading to increased international trade, to prosperity that tended to blunt war mongering, and to U.S. leadership in every direction militarily, economically and culturally. Offered our money and help, the Soviet Union rejected it and prevented us from giving aid to eastern European countries. We plunged into the costly, decades-long Cold War and, with the significant help of free-world partners, emerged victorious. But now were backing away from both that history and its strategy, or more precisely running away from it at top speed, it seems. Will somebody, therefore that would be you, with the children please show Sen. Rubio and his colleagues-in-retreat to the brickyard? Either that, or show them the door. t t a c c roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Emanating from slang back in the 17th century, developing into a description of financial fraud, and then branching out to apply to cheating in sports and elections, rigged had a breakthrough year in 2016, and it shows no sign of loosening its grip. It is a word of grievance and conspiracy. It is a word of institutional distrust. It is a word of larger forces beyond our control taking advantage of us. It is a word that says, We wuz robbed and we will make the bastards pay. In short, it is the perfect term for a fevered era in our national life. Donald Trump has charged that everything is rigged. Its not just the political system thats rigged, its the whole economy, he said during the campaign. The rigging specifically encompassed, among other things, unfair trade, immigration and economic policies, as well as the Republican primary (at least when he was losing ground). Since Hillary Clinton picked up on the verbiage from Bernie Sanders, both major-party candidates last year argued that the system had been manipulated by nefarious forces working for their self-interested ends, i.e., rigged. The election was basically a contest over which party had a better claim on the word. Yes, the game is rigged, Elizabeth Warren thundered. Its rigged for guys like Donald Trump. In the stretch run of the campaign, Trump warned his supporters that we are competing in a rigged election and demurred from saying in advance that he would accept the results. Democrats lamented Trumps rhetoric, but when he pulled off a stunning upset, they immediately resorted to rigged charges of their own. Trump hadnt really won; the election had been stolen in a smokefilled room somewhere in the Kremlin. The charges and countercharges contrast with the bygone era when national politicians avoided public allegations of foul play even when they might legitimately suspect it. Richard Nixon didnt contest his razor-thin defeat in the 1960 presidential election, despite doubts about the vote count in Illinois and Texas. He thought it wouldnt be good for the country, whereas now charges of rigging are the default. With trust in most American institutions badly eroded over the past 40 years, such accusations find a ready audience and do their part to undermine trust a little bit more. The idea that whatever we dont like about our country is the handiwork of shadowy forces is a form of paranoia, certainly when it involves systems as large, diverse and uncontrolled as our politics or our economy. But there is a certain comfort in this mindset. It provides a ready, simple explanation for unwelcome trends or outcomes, and fixes responsibility for our troubles on an enemy. It implicitly promises not so much the creation of a set of truly neutral rules or more legitimate institutions than simple vengeance against those who are allegedly responsible for the rigging. In other words, it heralds a particularly nasty politics, and, increasingly, its the one thing that unites the right and left. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Cutting federal funds to arts diminishes quality of life for allTo the Editor: So Congressman Rooney doesnt like zombies, and the rest of us must suffer. In his letter to Lydia Black (published in Florida Weekly, May 24) the Congressman cites $60,000 in federal funding for a play about zombies as a rationale for cutting out all governmental spending on the arts. First, how elitist. Second, the amount being eliminated is $147 million out of a federal budget of $1.15 trillion. Does he really think that eliminating this amount is going to have an impact on our debt? The budget sets aside $2.1 billion as a down payment for the border wall. Im sure lowering the wall by a foot will underwrite the National Endowment for the Arts for the year. So who does this impact? Small arts organizations, orchestras, theater companies, artists, writers, poets, ballet troupes, museums, arts education programs for children the list could go on and on. But who does this cut really impact? You, me, my family, my neighbors, my friends, my community and visitors to my community everyone because we no longer will be exposed to, and challenged by, new ideas, creative thinking and innovative works, be they art, music, written or performed. Our quality of life will be diminished and the arts community which we have all been nurturing will not flourish, if it doesn't wither to nothing. Is this what we want for our country? For our children? I hope the congressman will rethink his position on this issue, but since he can easily afford the $100-plus ticket to the Naples Phil, I am not optimistic. Charlotte Newton Fort MyersLowry has pulled National Review left, away from William F. Buckley Jr.To the Editor: It is helpful to remember that columnist Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review, a magazine published in New York City which attempts to lead the conservative movement from that illustrious location. Its the same kind of absurdity of the United Nations Organization being located (in the same city) when only a few Americans today support the UNOs programs and policies, even when the UNOs proclamations are occasionally good. Mr. Lowrys submissions to Florida Weekly suggest less that he is leading the movement many people think of as having been created by the National Reviews founder, William F. Buckley Jr. in 1953. I have been a reader of Lowrys publication since the late 1950s and have watched in the 21st century as it has steadily decomposed into a mere appendage of the liberal wing of the Republican Party. In the most recent issue of the Florida Weekly (May 18-24) it is sad to find Lowry supporting the concept of the nations taxpayers being forced to support the pre-existing medical conditions of a small section of the residents of the whole country. To be sure, New York City is welcome to support the medically afflicted who share pre-existing conditions but why must people of Florida do so? Mr. Lowry does not say and he does not mention that thus far the greatest portion of the losses of Obamacare have been due to pre-existing conditions, heavily in excess of $1 trillion dollars. Mr. Lowry merely points out how sad it is that people with these conditions are tragic and unfortunate but he fails to provide any statistics. He does not show, for instance, how many of the highly vulnerable now being covered by Obamacare survives for five or 10 years more. If we think about this seriously we have to admit that a large share of the Obamacare expenditures is for deathbed prolongation which cannot last help the heath of the body politic for widely or for long. It would take guts to deal with the facts of pre-existing conditions in an economic way as the National Review, in 1953, pledged to do. Alas, Mr. Lowrys efforts are for the left wing of the Republican Party and this is a partys section that prides itself on historically opposing difficult themes when they are first proposed by socialists and eventually giving into those when enough voters become supporters of ideals which lack economic coherence. The left-of center sector of the Republican Party is not a tool of good political thinking; it is a wedge, which undermines the logic of conservative realities. Mr. Lowry is wasting the time of the readers who expect him to express thinking such as that of Mr. Buckley and President Ronald Reagan. Sincerely, Hon. Timothy N. Hunter White House Staff Administration of President Reagan (1982-1989) West Palm Beach

Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces at the end of January are beginning to move around more with their young, which may now be 5 to 10 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam and can be more visible to people. Now is the time to expect bears to show up looking for food, said Dave Telesco, director of FWCs bear management program. If they cant find food in your neighborhood, theyll move on. Bears are also in search of potential mates. While black bears generally are not aggressive, they have injured people in Florida. Never approach any bear. When walking dogs in bear country, keep them close to you and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears, especially females with cubs. To keep bears away from your home and neighborhood, follow these simple tips: Secure household garbage in a sturdy shed, garage or a wildlife-resistant container. Put household garbage out on morning of pickup rather than the night before.

How does FWC do it?The FWC surveyed nearly 11 million acres in Florida to come up with its estimates of the states black bear population and location. Barbed-wire enclosures containing a small food reward were used to collect hair samples left behind when the bear squeezed between the wires for the food. Because state-of-the art genetic analysis of these hair samples enables researchers to identify individual bears, they can determine if the hair sample is from a bear that has already visited an enclosure or a new bear not previously identified. Population modeling work based on these genetic results, which is conducted by the University of Tennessee, provides FWC with an accurate estimate of bear numbers. Black bear basics>> FWC biologists estimate that there are approximately 4,050 black bears in Florida. They are the only species of bear found in the state. >> Adult male black bears usually weigh 250 to 350 pounds. The largest adult male black bear in Florida weighed 760 pounds. >> Adult female black bears usually weigh between 130 and 180 pounds. The largest adult female black bear in Florida weighed 400 pounds. >> Adult male black bears usually live within a 60-square-mile area, whereas females usually live within a 15-square-mile area. >> Female bears have their rst litter at about 3 years old and generally have a litter every other year. >> In Florida, the breeding season runs from June to August and cubs are born around late January or early February. >> Bears are excellent climbers and often climb trees when they are frightened. >> About 80 percent of a black bears diet comes from plants (e.g., fruits, nuts, berries), 15 percent from insects (e.g., termites, ants, yellow jackets) and 5 percent from meat (e.g., opossums, armadillos, carrion). Secure commercial garbage in bear-resistant dumpsters. Protect gardens, beehives, compost and livestock with electric fencing. Encourage your homeowners association or local government to institute bylaws or ordinances to require trash be kept secure from bears. Feed pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding. Clean grills and store them in a secure place. Remove wildlife feeders or make them bear-resistant. Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground. It is illegal in Florida to intentionally feed bears or leave out food or garbage that will attract bears and cause humanbear conflicts. Remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Each year in Florida, an average of 240 Florida bears are killed after being hit by vehicles. Having conflicts with bears? Call one of the FWCs five regional offices. Go to www.myfwc.com/contact and click on Contact Regional Offices to find the phone number for your region.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYfew homes away. Whoever bought it had deep pockets, he said. They put a fortune in it. And this past season, he noticed a different pattern: regular turnover, like clockwork, he said. It depends on the week, even the day sometimes, but he might see a Beamer or a Mercedes parked in the driveway, or an SUV big enough for a family of five and the dog. I started thinking, Yeah, its a business, Mr. Winter said about the everchanging occupants of the little house. Ive yet to nab any of the people to talk to them. There hasnt been a problem, he added. It just interests me.Ground zero for short-term rentalsScan Airbnb.coms rentals in Naples Park and Grannys house is one of about 18 possibilities offering whole homes, guesthouses, rooms and even a mosquito-netted poolside bed to rent for the night or longer. HomeAway offers another 23 rental listings. Once the areas only working-class neighborhood west of Tamiami Trail, Naples Park has become ground zero for lucrative vacation rentals. First of all, it has that coveted west of location, making it an easy walk or ride to the beach. And home prices some in the mid-$200,000s are among the lowest in the Naples area, which ranks within the top four international real estate markets specifically for investors looking to cash in on the Airbnb, or sharing economy, phenomenon. Drive throughout Naples Parks mileby-mile neatly gridded streets and the neighborhood gives mixed messages: a community with carefully manicured lawns of family homes, bike riders and dog walkers juxtaposed by the glamorization promised by contractors trucks and vans parked in driveways and advertising an array of services from quality countertops and cabinetry to complete landscaping renovation and pool installation. Realtors vacation and seasonal rental signs outnumber those advertising homes for sale. Along the higher-end fringes of the neighborhood Vanderbilt Drive and 91st Avenue North many of Naples Parks original two-bedroom, one-bath homes have long disappeared. Newer ones span several lots or reflect the Mediterranean mindset of the early 2000s. But signs of the old neighborhood are still evident in its interior, including original homes with minimal landscaping and scrappy yards.Best place to invest in rentalsOffering about 3,000 homes and lots, Naples Park reached its peak population of 8,002 residents in 1990 and has been on the decline since. There are currently about 60 homes for sale 60 homes offering the potential for easy rental income. Naples Park residents either arent aware of the presence of Airbnb, HomeAway and other short-term rentals on their block or have never had issues with the constant parade of temporary neighbors, saying theyre quiet and keep to themselves. Owners willing to loan out their entire home or a guesthouse often include strict caveats forbidding parties and other neighborhood disruptions. Bob Chapman, a Naples Park resident and member of the Naples Park Area Association, said he doesnt have a problem with rentals. As a Realtor, he also believes his neighborhood is the absolute best place for an investor to run a vacation rental. Except theres a problem with short-term and seasonal rentals in Naples Park and, for that matter, in any other single-family neighborhood in Collier County without an overlying planned unit development: They are violating county zoning codes designed to protect community character. The county code addressing permitted uses in residential single-family developments not governed by a PUD doesnt mention short-term rentals, thus prohibiting them through omission. In fact, any rental in these neighborhoods must be at least six months as outlined in the same transient destination zoning that applies to hotels and resorts. County officials have talked in the past about conducting a policy session to rework its regulations for short-term rentals. But it just kind of fell off the to-do list, said Michael Bosi, zoning division director for the Collier County Planning and Zoning Commission. Enforcing violations is a reactive process, Mr. Bosi said. Someone typically has to initiate a complaint with code enforcement. Ive been with the department 15 years, so this has been the policy for at least two decades. Residents can complain if they see a property changing hands a lot. But they seldom do. Code enforcement responded to 22 countywide complaints in the last year. Ten of those were in Naples Park. It could be that people who have a problem just dont know the proper channels to follow. The more persistent or frustrated ones eventually find their way to their county commissioners office or figure out that its a code enforcement issue.Rentals on code enforcement radarCollier Countys code enforcement department isnt oblivious to whats happening in Naples Park and other areas zoned single-family and estate residential, including the Pine Ridge neighborhood. In a May 8 email to County Attorney Jeff Klatzkow, Code Enforcement Supervisor Jeff Letourneau asked for guidance, noting some owners of single-family and estates properties are advertising and renting their houses and/or individual rooms for short periods of time including daily and weekly.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 NEWS A9 prohibited use violation of these districts. Mr. Klatzkow agreed, calling the rentals not authorized uses. Other districts such as certain commercial districts, the Residential Tourist District and many PUDs specifically authorize this use. That does not mean one cannot rent out ones home for a single-family residential use (typically such rentals are in excess of six months). Yet, whether rented in accordance with code or not it doesnt stop the county tax collector from collecting state taxes and the 4 percent tourist development tax or some commissioners from insisting the tax office is receiving its fair share from Airbnb and others offering short-term vacation rentals. The office doesnt differentiate between self-lessors, Realtors or management companies, only that all have registered and pay their taxes. Not in my backyardWhile marketing moxie has made Airbnb the most visible example of the short-term rental market, similar websites like HomeAway and VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) as well as local Realtors blatantly advertise oneday to weekly, monthly and seasonal rentals. Rent a home in Naples Park and the Airbnb site tacks on a service fee. Guests also pay occupancy tax, the socalled bed tax, which is also paid by hotels and resort visitors and used to promote Collier County tourism as well as to fund beach nourishment and other tourist-attracting projects. As it stands right now, its up to landlords to register their rental properties and remit bed tax payments to the tax collector. My philosophy is we dont ever ask if theyre (renting) legally or illegally, but only if were collecting the appropriate taxes, said Collier County Tax Collector Larry Ray. Deputy Tax Collector Rob Stoneburner has been trying to hash out a deal with Airbnb to simplify the collection process as it does in other Florida counties, including Lee. The company has been insistent on not revealing its clients. Airbnb doesnt seem to want to come to an agreement to pay us, Mr. Ray said. Theyre not willing to tell us who rents their property, and we have an issue with that because we already protect that information. It isnt public record. Were willing to talk, said Mr. Stoneburner, who also acts as Collier Countys director of tourist tax. Right now each individual has an account. It would make things easier for Airbnb to self-report. Wed collect one check as opposed to 100. Homeowners violating county codes by renting their homes could have found some relief during the 2017 state legislative session; however, a house bill that would have banned counties, cities and other municipalities from encroaching on companies like Airbnb and HomeAway died in the senate. The city of Naples typically allows 30-day rentals in certain areas of the city as well as three-month seasonal rentals, said Assistant City Manager Roger Reinke. Its complicated, but theyre allowed under certain conditions. If someone complains, well ask the property owner to cease and desist. The city of Miami is cracking down on short-term rentals in residential neighborhoods with the ability to fine landlords up to $20,000 for creating an illegal nuisance. Airbnb has fired back with a lawsuit. Jack Wert, executive director of the Naples/Marco Island and Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau, sees Airbnb and similar arrangements as satisfying the needs of a different type of traveler and even attracting more tourists to Collier County who might not be able to afford a traditional hotel or resort. The vast majority of our visitors are more loyal to hotel brands and they want amenities, room service and someone waiting on them, he said. Airbnb appeals to an alternative way to travel. Europeans definitely like the feeling of staying at a home. Mr. Wert said the trend has not impacted local hotel occupancy, and he doesnt expect it to. Residents opening their homes or even a room to travelers have actually expanded the number of visitors by making room for those previously shut out due to the lack of vacancies at traditional vacation rental properties during season. Supply is very finite for vacation rentals, Mr. Wert said. Airbnb adds to the inventory.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe largest group of graduates in The Immokalee Foundations 25-year history was celebrated last month at a dinner at Ave Maria University. Among them were 67 high school graduates, 41 graduates of traditional post-secondary programs and five graduates of the Heavy Equipment Mechanics program. They were joined by their families, friends, TIF staff/volunteers and dignitaries including local government officials and school administrators. Jillian Hasner, president and CEO of 45 Florida affiliates of Take Stock in Children, including the TIF affiliate, was the ceremonys keynote speaker. Currently in the state, more than 10,000 mentors have served more than 2 million hours, and 28,000 high school students have graduated with scholarships, Ms. Hasner told the crowd. And our success doesnt stop there. Ninety-six percent of our Take Stock students graduate high school, 96 percent of our students go on to college and 67 percent of our students graduate from college a rate five times higher than their peers. And we arent stopping until that final number reaches 96 percent, she added. We are working every day to build Take Stock Nation, an alumni network of Take Stock in Children students who will go on to be the next generation of mentors. Among that next generation is University of Florida computer engineering graduate Richard Martinez, who will begin law school at UF in the fall. His sister, Heather, has been involved in TIFs career development program. A high school graduate, Heather plans a career in biology and hopes to stay in the Immokalee area after college graduation to work in the Everglades. High school graduate Luzceleste Herrera will study nursing at Florida Gulf Coast University. Ive had my mind on many different careers, but nursing definitely has my attention now, said Ms. Herrera. She has been a TIF Take Stock in Children student since seventh grade. The Herrera family sat for dinner with Valerie Soto and her family; Ms. Soto plans to attend Florida SouthWestern State College to prepare for a career in law enforcement. Along with the graduates, honorees at the ceremony included longtime TIF volunteer mentors Manny Touron, John Henry and Bobby Gonzalez. TIF Board member Mac McDonald offered closing remarks, during which he recalled being present at the first TIF graduation, which included 12 Take Stock in Children students. How far we have come, he said. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence. To learn more about volunteering, becoming a mentor or making a donation, call 430-9122 or visit www.immokaleefoundation.org.The Immokalee Foundation honors record number of studentsSecond stellar student from Immokalee bound for elite prep school SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYSometimes its the students involved with The Immokalee Foundation who help to forge new pathways to success for their peers. Jesus Velazco, who is now finishing his junior year at Colgate University in New York, was the first TIF student to spend a year after high school attending The Salisbury School, an all-boys prep school in Connecticut. Now, a second TIF student is headed to the prestigious school. Mr. Velazcos introduction to Salisbury began when his Immokalee High School soccer coach, Manny Touron, talked about him to John Henry, a former member of the TIF board of directors and a Take Stock In Children mentor. Mr. Henry contacted his friend, Dick Munro, an emeritus board member at The Salisbury School, who set up an interview for the exceptional student-athlete. Mr. Velazco was well qualified academically, an excellent soccer player, and did so well in his interviews that he was quickly admitted for what amounted to a second senior year at Salisbury. He not only got accepted to Salisbury, but he was named Student of the Year. The Salisbury School was founded in 1901 and is situated on 725 acres in northwest Connecticut. Leaders there were so impressed with Mr. Velazco that they returned to Mr. Munro in hopes of learning about more students from TIF who might qualify for admission. The recommendation chain was again activated: Mr. Munro contacted Mr. Henry, who contacted Coach Touron. Ive got the perfect guy, the soccer coach told Mr. Henry. That was Ulises Soto, recently named his teams Player of the Year and excellent student involved in the TIF career development program. Mr. Henry volunteered to mentor Mr. Soto through the application process. When Salisburys admissions director, Brian Phinney, attended a sporting event near Orlando last spring, he made time to interview Mr. Soto. Brian told me, Hes in, Mr. Henry said. Bang, just like that. The son of two Immokalee field workers was about to see his entire life change. Mr. Soto hopes to become a professional soccer player; so, for a short time, he wasnt sure if he wanted to put off his dream for another senior year of high school even at a school like Salisbury with an elite enrollment of just over 300 young men. But then Mr. Henry helped arrange a November visit for Soto, and the matter was settled. I liked the campus, but I loved how the classes were 10 students or less in each room, and students treated each other as if they were brothers, Mr. Soto recalls about the visit. Just in four days of visiting the school, I learned a lot. Its amazing how you get to interact with other students around the world that you never thought you would ever meet, he added. Among those he met in November were soccer players from Ghana. Every student is humble about himself, Soto said. Many of them introduced themselves, offering me dinner and other things to make me feel at home. A scholarship from Salisbury for $61,000 will cover most of Mr. Sotos expenses for the year, said Mr. Henry, who helped with a few smaller scholarships for travel and other needs. Unlike the standard casual attire worn in most public high schools, Salisbury requires jackets and ties for class and some family-style dinners every week. Mr. Soto is undaunted. It will feel different, as if Im at a higher level, he said. On an honest note, I am going to be at a higher level of education. I will continue to take my education seriously. Mr. Soto, who plans to study mechanical engineering, has been a role model to his younger siblings as well as the young TIF students he tutors. Many struggle to learn English as a second language, as he did when he first started school. SOTO This years 113 graduates of The Immokalee Foundations various educational programs, along with several of the TIF staff and mentors who encouraged them all along the way. Michelle Kennedy, volunteer coordinator for the Take Stock in Children program at The Immokalee Foundation, congratulates and thanks longtime volunteer mentors Bobby Gonzalez, John Henry and Manny Touron.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 A13Cant possibly be true The inexplicable ease with which foreign hackers attack U.S. computers and security systems is finally grabbing the attention of officials. In a March Washington Post report, a technology expert from Britains Kings College London told a reporter of his astonishment to realize that the security chips on Congressional staff members identification badges are fake: The badge doesnt actually have a proper chip, he said. It has a picture of a chip. Apparently, he added, Its (there) only to prevent chip envy. Suzette Welton has been in prison in Alaska for 17 years based almost solely on now-debunked forensic evidence, but the states lack of a clemency process means she cannot challenge her life sentence unless she proves complete innocence. Evidence that the fire that killed her son was arson was based not on science but on widely believed (but wrong) folklore on how intentional fires burn differently than accidental ones. (The bogus arson trademarks are similar to those used to convict Texan Cameron Todd Willingham, who suffered an even worse fate than Weltons: Willingham was executed for his arson in 2004.) Reverence for the lineage of asparagus continues in epic yearly Anglican church festivities in Worcester, England, where in April celebrants obtained a special blessing for the vegetable by local priests as a costumed asparagus pranced through the street praising the stalks as representing the generosity of God. Critics (including clergy from other parishes) likened the parades to a Monty Python sketch, and an infantile pantomime, with one pleading plaintively, Really, for (Gods) sake, cant the Church of England offer more dignified worship? Leading economic indicators(1) Andrew Bogut, signed as a free agent by the NBAs Cleveland Cavaliers in March and expected to be a key player in the teams quest to defend its league championship, checked into his first game and played 58 seconds before crashing into a bench and breaking his leg. For that 58 seconds, the Cavs owe Bogut $383,000. (2) Jose Calderon signed as a free agent with the Golden State Warriors in March, but the NBA-leading Warriors changed their mind (for unforeseen reasons) two hours after the deal and released Calderon. For his 119 minutes as a Warrior (6:06 p.m. to 8:05 p.m.), Calderon was paid $415,000. Police report In May, as Taunton, Mass., police were about to arrest Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, for DUI after she left the road and crashed through several mailboxes (with the crash causing all of her tires to deflate), she, laughing, told officers there was one other thing: She had a bearded dragon in her bra (where it was riding while she drove). The lizard was turned over to animal control. Felicia Nevins complained to reporters in May that the Pasco County Sheriffs Office had improperly drawn attention to her on a matter of a purely personal nature that she had called for help, concerned that the sperm she was storing for in-vitro fertilization (kept under liquid nitrogen in a thermos) might explode. Deputies had placed the details (but not her name) on the offices Facebook page, but the Tampa Bay Times deduced her name from public sources. Bright ideas In May, the British tribunal dealing with student cheating rejected the appeal of a law student who was caught taking an in-class exam with her textbook open (permitted) but containing handwritten notes in the margins not permitted, but written in invisible ink legible via the UV light on her pen. On testing day in March for Romanias 14and 15-year-olds, administrators of the countrys popular DEX online dictionary, acting on suspicion, changed the definitions of two words likely to be improperly looked up by cheaters during the exam. (H) undreds of school searches for the words took place that morning, but administrators were still mulling an appropriate punishment for the cheaters (who were, of course, easily identified by their misapplication of the suspect words). With limited trade, investment and ownership rights, many Cuban producers are forced to improvise in order to bring products to market like Orestes Estevez, a Havana winemaker, who finds condoms indispensable, according to an April Associated Press dispatch. The most remarkable sight the reporter saw was hundreds of (open) bottles capped with condoms, which inflate from gases as the fruit ferments. When fermentation is done, the condom goes limp. (The AP also noted that fishermen use condoms to carry bait far from shore and which also increase tugging resistance when nibbling fish fight the line.)Awesome Indias Supreme Court approved an order recently that forced bars and liquor stores to close down if they were located less than 500 meters (1,640 feet) from state or national highways. India Times reported in April that the Aishwarya Bar in North Paravoor, Kerala, is still (legally) operating at its old location even though it is clearly within the 500-meter restricted area. The owner explained that since he owns the land behind the bar, too, he had constructed a serpentine wooden maze in back and front that requires any entering customer to take the equivalent number of steps it would take to walk 500 meters. (A tax office official reluctantly accepted the arrangement.) Canadian Anton Pilipa, 39, who suffers from schizophrenia, was discovered safe in the Amazon rainforest state of Rondonia, Brazil, in November 2016, which was the first sighting of him since his disappearance in March 2012. He was unable to communicate well and had no ID or money, but his family has actively been searching for him and believe the only way he could have traveled from the family home in Scarborough, Ontario, to Brazil (6,300 miles) was by hitchhiking or walking. (Bonus: The area in which he was found is noted for alligators and snakes.)

The nonprofit chamber held its inaugural event in April and is up to about 35 members. As of June 5, its Facebook page had more than 300 followers. It offers services in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties and hopes to become an important resource for the LGBTQ community. The first member was Fort Myers attorney Mary Beth Fletcher, who joined as soon as she heard it existed. She knows from experience that many in the LGBTQ community fear the reception they might receive when engaging professionals and those in the service industries. I would get calls from people who were afraid theyd be judged, Ms. Fletcher said. The Harmony Chamber serves as a directory, letting people know where they wont be judged. You do not have to be LGBTQ to join. This is exactly what we need, Ms. Fletcher said. One of the early chamber members, Naples physician Dr. Clint Potter, is a member of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association and provides services to LGBTQ patients. Dr. Potters website, www.NaplesAIM. com, notes that his practice is an affirming LGBT model. Knowing there is a gay-friendly place to find a doctor will help relieve anxiety for LGBTQ people, he said. Among other early members of the Harmony Chamber are the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and Laboratory Theater of Florida. Ron Penn, CFO of the community foundation, volunteers as treasurer of the new chamber. He has resided in Lee County for 12 years. I still dont know all the gay businesses, he said, adding that through the chamber he hopes to learn about more. Annette Trossbach, founder and producing artistic director of the Lab Theater, joined because she believes its important for the theater to send a welcoming message to LGBTQ people who are considering Southwest Florida for vacation or relocation. Thats something that unites customers of any business, she added. We like to spend our dollars where we are embraced as human beings. The same logic is exactly what motivated the founders of the Southwest Florida Harmony Chamber of Commerce. What are the resources here? Ms. Christiano said. Will I be able to find a doctor? I want to adopt. Who would I talk to? Although she envisions the chamber as becoming a one-stop source for the LGBT community to find the answers to such questions, Its more than a directory, she said. We are going to be instrumental in raising awareness. Over the years since she moved here from Flushing, N.Y., in 1989, Ms. Goldberg has watched the local LGBTQ community evolve. She also became one of its best-known representatives, especially after she fought to secure recognition as heir to her late wife, Carol Goldwasser, who died in 2014. Ms. Goldberg and Ms. Goldwasser met when they were 13 and living in the Bronx in the Castle Hill Projects. We knew there was something special, Ms. Goldberg said. But we didnt know what it was. Ms. Goldberg joined in a lawsuit that struck down Floridas same-sex marriage ban. Her work assisting the gay community made her well known. But it did something else. I think all of that helped me get over the grieving process, she said. It was a lot to get over. We were together for 47 years, she said. They married in New York in 2011, when such unions were not yet legal in Florida. Now, six years later, the Harmony Chamber is up and running. The timing is right, Ms. Goldberg said. We want everybody to feel a part of this. Its about the community. For now, the chamber exists only online, but organizers are thinking about a physical home, likely in downtown Fort Myers. There is a prospective area were looking at, Ms. Goldberg said. What is the ultimate goal for the Harmony Chamber? When we wont need a chamber, Ms. Goldberg said. For now, the Southwest Florida Harmony Chamber of Commerce is needed.

Planned Parenthood clinics offering HRT to transgender patientsPlanned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida has expanded health services in its 11 centers to include hormonal replacement therapy for transgender patients who are transitioning. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, LGBT individuals often face challenges and barriers to accessing needed health services and, as a result, can more often experience worse health o utcomes. One national survey found that of transgender people seeking health care: 28 percent were subjected to harassment in medical settings and 2 percent were physically assaulted in doctors offices. 19 percent were refused medical care. 28 percent postponed medical care when sick or injured due to discrimination. Planned Parenthood will serve as a bridge for many Floridians, providing critical services in a welcome environment that will allow thousands to feel safe accessing care as their authentic selves, says Gina Duncan, director of transgender inclusion at Equality Florida. We are proud to contribute to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our region, says Barbara Zdravecky, CEO of PPSWCF. Continually working to make our health centers safe and supportive environments is valuable for all patients, by allowing people to be who they are, and by providing them with a supportive, inclusive and nonjudgmental health-care environment.

For some people the disease is mild, but for others it is disabling. Scientists continue to search for the cause of this disease and for ways to improve treatment. While osteoarthritis, the most common of the more than 100 forms of arthritis, is caused by wear and tear on the joints, rheumatoid arthritis develops when the bodys own immune system attacks the joint tissues. The wrists, fingers, and toes can be affected, as can joints in the neck, knees, hips, ankles and elsewhere. The immune system is supposed to be something that does good things for you, says Dr. Kristen Demoruelle, an NIH-funded arthritis expert at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Its supposed to help you fight infections. But in rheumatoid arthritis for reasons that we dont yet understand the immune system gets confused and starts to attack your joints instead. Anyone can get rheumatoid arthritis. The disease most often begins in middle age or later, but it can occur at any age. Its important to get the correct diagnosis because each form of arthritis needs to be treated differently. To diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, doctors use medical history, physical exams, X-rays and lab tests. Theres no single test for the disease. Its not easy to diagnose. The joint swelling in rheumatoid arthritis is squishy and very different from the hard, bony enlargement of the finger joints that is often present in osteoarthritis, explains Dr. Michael Ward, who oversees rheumatoid arthritis research at NIH. Your joints may appear red and feel warm. Pain and stiffness may be worse after you wake up or have been resting for a long time. Over time, your immune system damages the tough, flexible tissue (cartilage) that lines joints. This damage can be severe and deform your joints. Some types of arthritis affect one joint at a time, but rheumatoid arthritis can affect your whole body. Scientists dont know exactly what causes rheumatoid arthritis. Its likely a combination of genetics and environmental triggers, such as tobacco smoke or viruses. Hormones might also play a role. More women are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis than men. The disease sometimes improves during pregnancy or flares up after pregnancy. Although there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, there are treatments that can effectively relieve pain, reduce joint stiffness and swelling and prevent further joint damage. Early detection is very important to increase the chance that treatment is successful. If we can get you into low disease activity by six months and remission (no signs of the disease) by one year, weve got an incredibly good chance of the disease having a very minimal impact on your life, says Dr. Vivian Bykerk, an NIH-funded arthritis researcher at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. There are many different classes of drugs available for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Many of them, like NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and steroids, work by reducing inflammation and can be used in combination with others that have been shown to slow joint destruction. NIH scientists helped develop a new class of drug for rheumatoid arthritis called Janus kinase inhibitors. JAK drugs work by suppressing the bodys immune response. The first drug in this new class was approved by FDA several years ago for moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers continue to investigate new types of drugs and drug combinations. We really have to rely on our experience, Dr. Bykerk says. We consider the combination of signs, symptoms and blood tests to choose the right treatment. Once treatment for rheumatoid arthritis is underway, patients need frequent checkups. Doctors may need to try and adjust different drugs or drug combinations to find the best fit for each person. Treatments are usually required for the long term to maintain control of the disease. For some people symptoms go on for years, even a lifetime. Sometimes after months of mild disease, symptoms can flare up again. Dr. Bykerk also works on an NIHsupported team of scientists who are searching for more effective treatment approaches. The team analyzes joint tissue and blood samples from people with rheumatoid arthritis to understand better the genes and proteins that trigger and drive the disease. The researchers aim to learn why some people respond differently to different treatments. They also hope one day to be able to tailor treatments to each person. Other studies are exploring how long people need to be treated once the disease is under control to prevent it from returning. Rheumatoid arthritis can affect virtually every area of your life, from work to relationships. If you have rheumatoid arthritis, there are many things you can do to help maintain your lifestyle and to keep a positive outlook. Exercise helps keep your muscles healthy and strong, preserve joint mobility and maintain flexibility. Rest helps to reduce joint inflammation, pain and fatigue. Ask your doctor how best to balance exercise and rest for your situation. New research advances continue to help improve quality of life for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Talk with your doctor about how to treat your joint pain and stiffness so that you can lead a full, active, independent life. HEALTHY LIVING SEE PANIRA, A17

MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERWe know what youre thinking: Cats cant learn tricks. Not so. Cats are highly intelligent and many of them are amenable to learning tricks or, as cats would put it, teaching you to give them treats. But why train a cat? Doesnt that take away from their inherent cattitude? We like to think of it more as enhancing their lives. Cats are smart and active, and training provides them with mental stimulation as well as a physical workout. It helps you and your cat learn to communicate more skillfully, adding a new dimension to your relationship. And its just plain fun. Kittens pick up tricks more quickly because their brains are more elastic, but cats of any age can learn new behaviors. All you need is a clicker, some aromatic treats your cat can gulp down quickly, good timing and a little patience. Here are three easy tricks to teach your feline Einstein. Sit. This is a great trick to teach cats who have a habit of jumping on guests laps uninvited or chasing people and attacking their legs. Its also the foundation for teaching stay, sit up and wave. Start by holding a treat just above your cats head. As his nose goes up to sniff it, his rear automatically goes down into a sit position. The instant he sits, click and give a treat. Click and treat any time you see your cat sitting, whether youve asked him to or not. As you do so, give a name to the action Sit and praise him for it Good sit! Once he learns to sit on cue (cats dont respond to commands, you know), you can have your cat sit as an alternative to things he might do that annoy you. For instance, if your cat likes to sprawl across your desk while youre working, make it rewarding instead for him to sit at your feet or on a chair next to you. Come. This may be the easiest trick to teach, believe it or not. Every time you set down your cats food bowl, make an easily repeatable sound: ring a bell, jingle your keys or whistle a tune (dont use the clicker for this trick). Your cat will quickly associate that sound with mealtime and respond instantly to it. Learning to come when called can save a cats life. If you need to evacuate your home because of a fire or other emergency, it saves valuable time if your cat comes when called. Sound advice: Always reward your cat when he comes to you, and never call him and then do something he doesnt like, such as giving him a pill or taking him to the veterinarian. Touching a target. This is useful because it can help you direct your cat to certain areas. Use a target such as a pencil with a large eraser on the end or a narrow bird perch. Put a small amount of wet food on the end of the target and show it to your cat, holding it just far enough away that he has to reach forward to get the food. As soon as he touches the target with his nose, click and give him a treat. Gradually extend the distance the cat must come before touching the target. Once your cat will touch a target, you can use it to teach him to spin in a circle, jump through a hoop or go to a specific place. Tip for success. Keep training sessions short, no more than two or three minutes at a time, since cats have short attention spans. The easiest way to teach a trick is to capture a behavior a cat does normally by rewarding him whenever he does it.

When I started looking into getting flirty, feathery lashes, I wondered if it were too late in life for me to go from being a low-maintenance diva to a high-maintenance one.Im the sort who has always prided herself on being relatively low maintenance. In my 20s, I was all Birkenstock sandals, overalls and wash-and-go hair. I didnt even own a flat iron until I was in my mid-30s (I still have it, and Im pretty sure Ive only flat-ironed my hair four times over the years). Ive barely had a handful of professional massages, and thats only because they were gifts (I dont do well with lying still). And the one time about 20 years ago that I attempted acrylic nails, I had them taken off 48 hours later because I panicked and convinced myself that the acrylics were preventing my real fingernails from breathing. Scoff if you will, but do we really KNOW that fingernails dont breathe?My low-maintenance beauty routine was working out fairly well until just recently when I discovered that as one ages, higher maintenance solutions for combating the ravages of time increase in desirability. I have several friends whose eyelash extensions I coveted until I found out that not only can it cost around $200 for the initial twohour application, you have to go back to the eyelash salon every two or three weeks to have them refilled (which can cost up to $90 a visit). Sadly, while the high-maintenance me craves Jennifer Lopez lashes, the low-maintenance me wants to just go to CVS and drop $5.99 for a tube of Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. And its not just eyelash extensions. I want gel polish on my fingernails, too the process isnt as drastic as acrylics, as gel just goes over your regular nail but once again, its a beauty regime that requires actual maintenance. You have to return to the nail salon every couple of weeks for more gel as your nails grows. To low-maintenance me, that sounds exhausting. Then theres Botox, which Ive actually tried a couple of times. I admit I really enjoyed the fresh, youthful, renewed look it gave me. But, after a few months it wore off, and that worry line between my eyes returned with a vengeance. Botox, like long, luscious eyelashes and perfectly polished nails, takes commitment, money and the willingness to dial up your maintenance level several notches. It makes me wonder: Even if I had thousands of dollars to invest in being gorgeous, do I actually have the time, patience and dedication to maintain it all? And heres another thing to ponder: If my eyelashes had extensions, would they still be able to breathe? Ill have to Google that one. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week. stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com

Our youngest student is 4. Our oldest is 80. While a number of good studios exist in each community, Fred Astaire is a national chain founded by the man himself, who opened the first such studio on Park Avenue in New York City in 1947, according to company literature. He was 48 years old at the time, a man at the pinnacle of his career on Broadway and in the movies. He redefined the way many Americans for generations to come would think about dance, their bodies, and themselves. The Fred Astaire studios became and remain popular they can be found today in Collier, Lee, Charlotte and Palm Beach counties, for example. They also proved to be evergreen as businesses since people fall in love with dancing in any era, once they have a taste of it, says Ms. Rudenco. Its so healthy and so much fun.

He was seeking a job in sales at the then new Havertys Furniture store in Fort Myers, but his efforts kept hitting a brick wall. The manager wouldnt hire me, Mr. Norris recalls. I went back three times. He said, You dont have any experience, and I said, Neither did you when you started. Give me a chance. The third time was a charm. Mr. Norris landed the job and became one of the stores top salesmen over the next decade before departing in 1983 to launch what is today Norris Furniture and Interiors. Wall-unit furniture and entertainment centers were the stores sole focus for the first year, but in 1984 Mr. Norris leased a larger show room on College Parkway and expanded his offerings to include a full line of furnishings. From there, Norris Furniture and Interiors has grown to include locations in Naples, Sanibel and Sarasota. In addition to furniture, the showrooms now offer interior design services and window treatments, rugs, bed linens and a broad array of other accessories. Mr. Norris cites exemplary customer service as just one of several reasons for the business success. Ive always loved to work hard, and I love people, he said. I feel blessed. We have 168 employees. Weve created those jobs and grown the company. I credit my employees and my customers and the vendors that I work with. A SEE NORRIS, B5 NORRIS

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to 1851, when two Bostonians went into business in Hawaii. In 1907, I ran one of the first nationwide consumer advertising campaigns in America for pineapples. Today, based in California, Im the worlds largest producer of bananas and pineapples, among other things. Over the years, partly through acquisitions, I moved into other fruits and vegetables. Now I even offer salads in bags. I operate the largest dedicated refrigerated fleet of containers in the world, too. Ive been a public company and a private one and am looking to go public again. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Wisdom from OmahaSuperinvestors Warren Buffett and his business partner, Charlie Munger, recently presided over their Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, answering dozens of questions from shareholders, journalists and stock analysts for more than five hours. On health care: Buffett noted that if the GOP health-care bill that was recently approved by the House of Representatives had been in effect last year, My federal income taxes would have gone down 17 percent. He noted that the bill represents a huge tax cut for guys like me. Buffett also said that while corporate executives complain about tax rates, health care costs are the real problem, pointing out that corporate tax payments as a percentage of GDP have shrunk from 4 percent in 1960 to just 2 percent now. On the other hand, medical costs have ballooned from 5 percent of GDP to 17 percent of GDP currently: Medical costs are the tapeworm of American economic competitiveness. Munger noted that politicians arent addressing the issue effectively, saying, Both parties hate each other so much that neither one of them can think rationally. On scuttlebutt: Buffett recommended Philip Fishers classic book, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits (Wiley, $25) and its scuttlebutt concept for researching companies, whereby investors can learn a lot just by asking questions of a companys executives, workers, customers, competitors and so on. On robotics and artificial intelligence: Buffett noted that autonomous vehicles could hurt his GEICO insurance business and driverless trucks might hurt his BNSF railroad. Artificial intelligence would result in significantly less employment in certain areas, but thats good for society. Advice for all: Buffett recommended looking for the job youd take if you didnt need a job, while Munger urged: If you really want anything, dont wait. Theres much more to learn about money, investing and life from Buffett. Read his annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Roger Lowensteins book, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $19) is an excellent read, too. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) The Cost of ImpatienceMy dumbest investment was selling Amazon.com for a 50 percent gain at $156 per share. Why did I sell? Well, I think I took the profits in order to purchase another stock that seemed more safe and stable. It did indeed turn out to be a nice, safe position, but looking back, my investment in Amazon would be worth over $100,000 today if I still had it. Yikes. B.P., Bakersfield, CaliforniaThe Fool Responds: Shares of Amazon have indeed been on a tear, averaging annual growth rates above 30 percent over the past five, 10 and 20 years enough to turn a $5,000 investment in 1997 into more than $2.4 million today. You did what many people do when theyre looking for a certain percentage gain: They sell the stock after achieving that hoped-for gain. You can reap profits with such a system, but greater profits can await if you simply hang on to powerful performers for many years. The trick is to be patient and not get rattled by occasional pullbacks. Amazon, for example, fell by more than 10 percent between early October and early December of 2016. Dont hold on blindly, though. You need to keep up with your holdings to make sure their growth prospects and competitive advantages dont shrink. If youre not sure about selling, you might just sell a portion of your shares, giving the rest more time to grow. Healthy ProspectsMost people know CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) for its network of retail pharmacies that features almost 9,700 locations, including some within Target stores. CVS is also known for its 1,100-plus in-store Minute Clinics. The main driver of its success, though, is CVS pharmacy benefits management (PBM) business. A PBM negotiates between payers and makers of drugs to bring prices down, taking a small chunk of the savings as its reward. CVS is one of the United States largest PBMs and in this industry (as in many others), size confers essential negotiating leverage. A client retention rate around 97 percent shows that its also keeping its customers happy. Competition is strong between CVS and Walgreens Boots Alliance, which stole away two major customer accounts representing roughly 40 million prescriptions last year. CVS stock has slipped over the past year, and CEO Larry Merlo sees 2017 as a rebuilding year, aiming to return to healthy levels of growth. Both CVS and Walgreens have a major tailwind in the ongoing aging of America, which will only increase demand for its services. CVS Health is projected to see annual earnings growth in the double digits over the next five years. Add that to a reasonable valuation and a dividend that recently yielded 2.6 percent, and youve got an intriguing long-term portfolio candidate. (The Motley Fool has recommended CVS Health.) Tracing my roots back to a grain warehouse in 1865, Im now Americas largest privately held company yet you may not know my name. Based in Minneapolis, I specialize in food, agricultural, financial and industrial products. My brands include Egg Beaters, Ambrosia chocolate, Shady Brook Farms meats, Truvia sweetener and Diamond Crystal salt. My ingredients are found in toothpastes, shampoos, deodorants and more. I offer industrial salts, oils, biodiesel products, animal feed and much more, too. I rake in some $120 billion annually and have about 150,000 employees working in 70 countries. Who am I? (Answer: Cargill) Tax-Free Retirement WithdrawalsQCan you explain Roth IRAs? B.T., Hattiesburg, MississippiAWell explain not only Roth IRAs, but also Roth 401(k)s. Just as there are two main kinds of IRAs traditional and Roth many companies now offer their workers the choice between traditional and Roth 401(k)s. With a traditional IRA and 401(k), you contribute pre-tax money that reduces your taxable income and, therefore, your tax bill for the year. For example, if you earn $60,000 and contribute $5,000, your taxable income drops to $55,000. When you withdraw the money in retirement, its taxed as ordinary income to you.With Roth IRAs and 401(k)s, though, you contribute post-tax money that doesnt deliver any upfront tax break. But you eventually get a big tax break when you withdraw from the account in retirement because if you follow the rules, its all tax-free. For 2017, you can contribute up to $5,500 and $18,000 to IRAs and 401(k)s, respectively, with an additional $1,000 and $6,000 allowed, respectively, for those age 50 or older. If you contribute $8,000 per year for 20 years and your contributions grow by 8 percent on average annually, youll end up with almost $400,000 and you can take it all out tax-free in retirement!For practical retirement guidance and recommended stocks and mutual funds, try our Rule Your Retirement newsletter for free at fool. com/shop/newsletters. ***QWhat good books cover stock market history?

business owner shares his vision with employees and customers, and it takes a team. He also praises the contributions of his wife and co-owner/accessories buyer, Renee. Mr. Norris is a North Carolina native who, in 1969, moved to Fort Myers, where a buddy from his seven-year stint in the U.S. Air Force was living. His friend worked at the Sears store in the city, and Mr. Norris joined him there. He spent five years selling home improvements there, but not by choice. The guys at Sears who made the most money were in furniture, said Mr. Norris. They wouldnt transfer me, so when Havertys opened a new store in Fort Myers, I got hired there. Its an industry that hes come to love. The furniture and the interior design businesses are really fun, he said. Going to market (the worlds largest home furnishings trade show in High Point, N.C.) and seeing the new product coming out is always exciting. We go to two markets a year in High Point. Thats where we make our selections so that we stay fresh and current with everything. Despite his affinity for the industry, Mr. Norris sold his store to the former Boyles Furniture in 1998 with the intention of retiring. But 12 years later, he returned as owner after Boyles parent company, Hendricks Furniture Group, filed for bankruptcy protection and closed all of its stores. I thought I was done; I had a 12-year vacation, said Mr. Norris, who devoted his time to remodeling waterfront homes, developing a subdivision in Fort Myers and building homes in the mountains of North Carolina. When the Hendricks group closed the Fort Myers store, he stepped into the breach. I decided hey, weve got a good name in the business, so lets reopen, he said. Since then, hes added the Naples and Sanibel locations as well as the Sarasota showroom and design center. His rationale for expanding the business is simple. I guess Im just a true entrepreneur, he said. When I see opportunity, I go after it. The quality of work performed by Norris Furniture and Interiors employees is a source of pride for Mr. Norris. I get so many complements from our customers, he said. I have customers write me letters and call me. And thats the most important thing in retail, to have satisfied customers. Such praise falls right in line with Mr. Norris business philosophy: Make your customers happy. They sign your paycheck. Interview with Larry NorrisBusiness mentor: Clyde Hooker, past chairman of Hooker Furniture Company. The way he dealt with his employees and customers always impressed me. He was a very humble but great leader in the furniture industry. First job: My first job was for seven years proudly serving our country in the United States Air Force. Business words of wisdom: In retail, your three greatest assets are your customers, your employees and your suppliers. You must keep all of them happy. Favorite business reading: Furniture Today and other trade magazines. Two things you look for when hiring: The most important things to me are character and experience.Any job openings? Were always looking for experienced interior designers at all of our locations. We can always fit them in.

Even if you lack the talent of a Fred Astaire (and everybody else except Fred Astaire does, according to the critics) or you have the proverbial two left feet, instructors say, youre capable of finding just as much joy as the greatest American popular dancer or his favorite sidekick, Ginger Rogers. In Naples at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio on Pine Ridge Road, for example, two introductory lessons are only $40, and you dont need a partner if you dont have one in mind. Ron Domagala took such an opportunity in 2015 offered by the Naples studio directors, Irina Fedosova and Strahinja Lackovic, and it changed his life. My first lesson I was so nervous, the Naples resident recalls in a review of the experience. And for the first few lessons, every time he heard Ms. Fedorova approaching across the dance floor, I got butter flies in my stomach. But within 18 months hed won a top student award at a regional competition dancing with his instructor, Ms. Fedorova. The feeling of accomplishment was indescribable, he reports. Thats why many who take it up, keep it up, they say. In Palm Beach at the Paramount Ballroom, owner and former national champion Alec Lazo leads a program designed for everybody, but with a special emphasis on children. He calls it a no pressure dance studio (where) we specialize in teaching dance to singles, couples and children of all ages. Which may seem a paradox given the highpressure challenges of his career in the competitive Ballroom Dance Sport industry. His resume, not atypical among directors or instructors at any of these studios, includes such triumphs as U.S. Nine Dance Champion, U.S. Rising Star Latin Champion, U.S. Grand finalist and U.S. Rhythm finalist. The various forms and styles of dance are many, but sometimes broken into one of two categories: Rhythm and Smooth. The names of dances are themselves a kind of poetry, perhaps: Rhythm dancing includes the Salsa, Mambo, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Merengue, Rumba, Cha Cha, Samba, Bolero, Paso Doble and the Jive. Smooth, as one might imagine, consists of the Argentine Tango, the Foxtrot, the Tango, the Waltz, the Viennese Waltz and the Quickstep. For those beginning, those who have not danced in years or those who have a handicap, its possible for anyone to learn, says Ms. Rudenco. Free lessons and reduced-cost and introductory packages are part getting started, allowing new students to get the feel of it at little expense, she adds. Everybody learns differently, you may have natural talent or not. And that doesnt matter. Some people take a couple of lessons to get the basics, and some might take four or five. What if you want to be a good basic dancer in most social dance situations, including weddings or parties? Probably you need a year of basics, she says. You should know one slow dance and one fast. Plus, we teach you how to connect with a partner with any music, any partner, in a crowd or when its not too crowded. All of this can lead to peripheral businesses as well. In other words, its not only good for body and mind in the dancers, its good for the economy. At the Fred Astaire studio in Naples, We can assist you in your fundraising activities by providing gift certificates for your auctions, free lesson certificates for gift bags, or even providing the venue for your charity event. Not only that but theyll host a dance party, provide demonstrations, and even DJ parties. Studios do weddings that is, they teach brides, grooms, parents, sometimes entire wedding parties how to actually dance to the music of celebration theyll hear, rather than stumbling around on a dance floor making vaguely rhythmic motions with heads, arms, hips and legs while trying not to bump into each other. And for those who get into the competitive end of the dance world at Fred Astaire, for example, competitions are a way to hone the art and take pleasure clothing and accessories businesses are bustling satellites to the dance industry. At WE Design in Fort Myers, makers of dance clothing and costumes, owner Maryland Wigginton said she was too busy even to have a phone conversation about the work she does. Shes probably as much a part of the dance world as the music or the dancers themselves, which suggests Williams Butler Yeats was right in his famous poem, Among School Children. He wrote, O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,/ How can we know the dancer from the dance?

C24-27 INSIDEWEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017Spirits lining up for Saturday psychic fair BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comThe human condition practically begs us all to struggle at least occasionally with questions like: Who am I? What am I doing here? Do I have a clear view of whats going on around me? Some answers to such questions might become apparent for those who attend the Spirits Row Psychic Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 10, at Unity Church of Bonita Springs. Organizer Noreen, a medium who says her psychic hygiene requires that she not use her last name, has contracted the services of numerous psychics, mediums, spiritual counselors and healers to conduct readings. Several vendors will have various spiritual/healing/holistic items for sale. We asked Noreen and two other participants to tell us about their abilities and the services they will offer at the fair. Entry is $5, and readings are priced separately.Noreen, psychic mediumAs a fourth-generation psychic, Noreen said she and her knowing relatives didnt have to be told things in order to know they were happening. It was only when she left home that she realized not everyone has the same gift. She describes that gift as the ability to read peoples energy so she can receive messages from the universe directed at those people. In essence, Noreen acts as a liaison. It could be past loved ones, it could be their angels or it could be directly from the universe, she said. Theyre sending messages and then its up to me Whatever happened?Could Lab Theaters parody of a classic horror film be the next cult classic?

Fluent in Spanish! 1-800-591-DERM | RiverchaseDermatology.com GREATER NAPLES FLORIDA WRITERSA hot-headed villain isnt all that puts Stone Barrington to the test Fast & Loose by Stuart Woods. Putnam. 368 pages. Hardcover, $28. This is the 51st Stone Barrington novel, but whos counting? Stuart Woods is a nonstop thriller writer whose titles spend a lot of time on the bestseller lists. This one will probably join the previous 50. He has a great formula and a great leading character. He fascinates us with the lifestyle of wealthy and sometimes beautiful people. When Stones exotic cruising yawl is hit by another boat during a fogbound return to the dock in Maine, he ends up coming to consciousness on the yacht of the Carlsson family. Hes entranced by the stunning Dr. Marisa Carlsson and impressed by her father, Dr. Paul Carlsson, head of the prestigious Carlsson Clinic. The accident springs into a series of opportunities and confrontations that wind through the novel while holding it together. The romance between Stone and Marisa is one satisfying part of it. Another is Stones inevitable involvement in helping the Carlssons overcome an unfriendly takeover that became even less friendly when the man who was orchestrating it died and his authority in St. Clair Enterprises was taken over, illegally, by a ruthless schemer named Erik Macher. ExCIA, Macher had bribed the companys lawyer to create a fraudulent will naming himself as Christian St. Claires successor. And Macher wants to control the Carlsson familys medical business. The battle of wits and resources makes for a suspenseful series of high-flying episodes filled with action much of it violent. It takes us to the upper stratosphere of money and influence, a world in which connections are everything and Stone has all anyone would need. A retired veteran of the police force, he hangs his private law shingle within a larger big law firm in which he is partnered, so he controls plenty of legal clout. He is best friends with the always available head of the NYC police force, Dino Bacchetti, which helps to no end. Such connections give Stone instant access to background searches that reveal Machers tainted history. Stone is also a principal in a highpowered security firm that plays an important part in protecting the Carlssons, among other duties. Stone has connections everywhere, even the White House. While the battle rages to destroy Machers schemes, readers become eavesdroppers in a world of private planes, enormous and fashionable dwellings, supercars, executive suites that could run small nations, the best restaurants and, well, pretty much the best of everything. And almost everyone is so relaxed about it, so cool, so at home in this rarified world even those who were not born to it. Macher is not cool. Hes superheated, and that insures his downfall and the readers delight. His egocentricity and short temper help to bring him down. However, while the game is on, he proves to be a shrewd and formidable adversary. Its delightful to see him fuming and fretting and yet coming up with moves and countermoves against team Barrington. Marisa is hot and cool. A dedicated physician, she admits to her Swedish propensities with respect to sexual freedom and fulfillment. She is neither troubled nor embarrassed by her promiscuity. In fact, she wears it proudly for those who can understand the rewards and adjust their expectations. Stone has a bit of trouble finding his balance with Marisa, and its fun to watch him become somewhat perplexed, but hes a big boy. Mr. Woods gives his abundant number of second-rank characters Stones friends and business associates, his secretary, his butler-chauffer vivid, distinctive personalities. And so it is with those characters who are in league with Macher. A master of his genre, Mr. Woods is a seasoned pro who satisfies over and over again.About the authorStuart Woods is the author of more than 60 novels. A native of Georgia, he began his writing career in the advertising industry. Chiefs, his debut novel in 1981, won the Edgar Award, and he received Frances Prix de Literature Policiere for Imperfect Strangers. An avid sailor and pilot, he lives in Florida, Maine and New Mexico. His next Stone Barrington outing, Indecent Exposure, will be out soon.

THURSDAY EVENINGS $50/Class June 29 July 27 August 31Art, Drink and Be Merry 6:00 9:00 pm Wire Wrapped Jewelry 6:00 9:00 pm Parody of classic Baby Jane to be staged by Lab Theater BY TOM HALLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIn 1917, Baby Jane is a self-centered, blond, blue-eyed child star. Her sister, Blanche, isnt anything. But within a few years, Blanche becomes a bona fide film actress. Known as the Queen of the Hollywood melodrama, she outshines her sister in every way. As Blanches career skyrockets, vaudeville fizzles out and Jane is left behind. But then, Blanches career comes crashing to an end when shes paralyzed from the waist down in a freak car accident. Forgotten by their adoring fans and fellow actors, the sisters have no one left except each other. Fast forward 30 years to 1962. Jane and Blanche are living together in Blanches mansion. Blanche is managing the estate as best she can, but Jane has descended into alcoholism and sadism. She now serves not only as Blanches caretaker, but as her tormenter as well. When Blanche informs Jane she plans to sell the house, all hell really breaks loose. This is the plot of the classic film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? But Lab Theater isnt merely reviving it. The company is producing Dale Guzmans parody of it. More to the point, Lab Theater has cast men in the roles made famous by Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Neapolitan Randy Jones stars as Jane, and Rob Green plays Blanche. Joining them are Patrick Erhardt as Mrs. Bates, Jack Weld as Edwin Bates and Kayleigh OConnell as Elvira. Also appearing in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror are Steven Coe, Cindi Heimberg, Patrick Rogers, Eren Sisk, Holly Hagan and Yancy de la Roz as Little Jane. Whether you are new to Baby Jane or a long-standing devotee, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror has all the earmarks of a new cult classic one designed to shed light on the real life horror faced by the legion of childhood actors left woefully behind by the film and television industries. Randy Jones, left, plays Jane and Rob Green plays Blanche in the Lab Theater production.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYJim Krueger) and Only You Know and I Know (which became a No. 2 hit for Delaney & Bonnie). He was one of the friends on the Delaney & Bonnie and Friends album and tour, and he also appeared on albums by Jimi Hendrix (Electric Ladyland), George Harrison (All Things Must Pass), The Rolling Stones (Beggars Banquet) and Derek and the Dominos (Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs), to name a few. His fellow musicians returned the favor. Stevie Wonder played harmonica on his song The Lonely One. He had the same engineer as I did, Mr. Mason says, noting that Mr. Wonder was recording his iconic Innervisions at the time. They were recording him, and wed cross paths from time to time. I said to him, I have this one song, how would you feel about playing harmonica on it? And he said, Sure. The same thing happened with Michael Jackson. I was recording in one studio and he was recording in another, Mr. Mason recalls. He was on break when I needed someone to sing a high part on a song called Save Me. So I went and asked him. Mr. Jackson told Mr. Mason that when he was 12 years old he sang Feelin Alright on a TV special with Diana Ross. So, the King of Pop happily added his voice to Mr. Masons Save Me. Not many people realize Mr. Mason wrote Feelin Alright, he says, and hes OK with that. More than 50 musicians and groups have covered it everyone from Three Dog Night to Grand Funk Railroad to Isaac Hayes. Probably the best-known cover is Joe Cockers. Thats the version most often used in movies or commercials, Mr. Mason says. Most people think its an upbeat song, but when he wrote it, the title originally had a question mark at the end. Feelin Alright? is not a positive song, he says. Its not about feeling good, he explains. Its a question: Are you feeling alright? Im not feeling too good, actually. Hell perform Feelin Alright as part of his show Saturday, June 10, at the Southwest Florida Event Center (formerly the Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center) in Bonita Springs. Dubbing it the Alone Together Again tour, he and his band will perform all the songs from his Alone Together album. But they wont do the numbers back-toback or in the same sequence as they appeared on vinyl. I tried that earlier in the year, and though it works on an album, playing it that way live just doesnt seem to work out as well, he says. The other point about it is, there are only eight songs on the album, so if the show was just about doing that album, itd be a very short show. We do all the songs, but I space them out with my stuff from my solo work and also stuff from Traffic. I have a great band, he says. We are fully rocking, thats for sure. (The band consists of Johnne Sambataro on guitar/ vocals, Alvino Bennett on drums and Tony Patler on keyboard/vocals.) An interesting journeyNow 71 years old, Mr. Mason fell in love with rock and roll when he was in his early teens, growing up in rural England. It was the style of music that was happening, and we just got turned on to it, he says. Mostly it was about the guitar for me. I was into a lot of instrumental bands. And then I had to learn to sing, otherwise I wouldnt get bookings. You had to learn the current hits. He has no formal education in music. I just decided very young, Im going to do this, he says. Most of it was just: Im doing this, come hell or high water. And I was one of the lucky ones that made it. One of his favorite bands was The Shadows, a four-man group who played instrumentals and became Cliff Richards backup band. Their hits included Apache, Wonderful Land and KonTiki. He also loved The Ventures and Duane Eddy. Anything with a guitar, he says. And then as I got more and more into it, my musical taste broadened into all kinds of stuff: jazz, classical, gospel, blues everything. It was when he was a road manager for the Spencer Davis Group that he co-formed Traffic with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood. Their 1967 debut album, Dear Mr. Fantasy, is considered one of the iconic psychedelic albums of the era, and the group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. Mr. Masons sound was originally very trippy and whimsical. In addition to guitar, he played the sitar. I havent played a sitar in, God, nearly 50 years, he says, adding, I couldnt even sit in that position any more. He describes the first song he ever wrote, Hole in My Shoe, as kind of like a nursery rhyme. After that, I thought I have to start writing about more things about life. Then I made a point of trying to write something that was timeless rather than dated. Traffic was known for mixing up rock with jazz and soul; their live albums contain long, extensive jams. Mr. Masons relationship with Traffic was off and on, as he left the group, then rejoined them, then left again. In 1968 he played 12-string acoustic guitar on Jimi Hendrixs version of All Along the Watchtower and sang backup on Crosstown Traffic. I got to know Hendrix when we were in London, Mr. Mason says. I just met him one night in a club, struck up a conversation. He was a fan of Traffic. I just spent some time hanging out with him, and then I got in the studio with him. In addition to All Along the Watchtower and Crosstown Traffic there were other cuts where I played bass and sitar, but I have no idea what happened to them. Mr. Mason eventually came to America and played guitar with Delaney & Bonnie, the husband-and-wife duo that had a No. 2 hit with their cover of his Only You Know and I Know. When the couple toured as Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Mr. Mason was part of the band, along with Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Leon Russell. We opened for a lot of Blind Faith shows, he recalls. Thats when Eric (Clapton) got to meet all these musicians. And (that led to) the album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, by Derek and the Dominos. Mr. Mason was invited to be part of Joe Cockers Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour, but decided not to go. It was a little too crazy for me, he says. A little too out there for me at the time.But he built a name for himself as a solo artist and had hits with songs such as Only You Know and I Know, Shouldnt Have Took More Than You Gave and We Just Disagree. His debut solo album was the 1970 Alone Together. Looking back on his long career, he wouldnt change a thing, he says. Well, if I could do anything differently, I probably wouldve paid more attention to keeping my money, and not been so cavalier, he says. That would be my only thing. Otherwise, its been an interesting journey. He sees himself in the fourth quarter of life. When Im on stage, Im happy to be here. Im happy to be anywhere, he says. Having already performed with so many musicians, is there anyone on his bucket list hed like to share a stage with? Id love to do something with Bonnie Raitt, he says. Not that it would ever happen. Nothings impossible. I just dont know if its probable. And, he says, It would be nice before its all over, to go out and do a Traffic reunion with (Steve) Winwood. There are only two of us left. We were one of the original alternative bands, I think, he says. Thats how I would categorize it.

Librarians writing memoirsIn that coincidental way that happens sometimes in publishing, two authors have released memoirs about what its like to be a librarian: the strange patrons, the odd co-workers, the weird things that occur when random people gather together in a public space. Both authors also happen to be male and work in California. But the coincidences end there. I had high hopes for Quiet, Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian ($25, DeCapo Press) by Scott Douglas, but soon grew frustrated. The author is so meanspirited the book should have been titled I Hate Everybody and I Hate My Job. Im not joking. Ill be honest. Im not a fan of the handicapped, he writes. In another chapter, he writes about older patrons: As sad and cruel and insensitive as it was to say, they would soon be dead anyway. About teens: I hate them. Well, most of them About the firefighters next door: I thought the firefighters were a bunch of arrogant jerks and not very neighborly in any way. I hated them, even though everyone loved them. Hes also homophobic. When his uncle gives him a lift to the library on his motorcycle, he says, I never imagined riding a motorcycle would be so gay. Later on, he actually refers to someone as a she-male. At one point he proclaims: I hate white people. Then, in a footnote, says in parentheses, I am white. Mr. Douglas went to school for a masters in library science because the tuition was free and it allowed me to put off my life choices for just a bit longer. Of course, he claims all his professors are idiots. Ditto for fellow students. I stuck with the program largely because I did not have to pay for it, he writes. He says librarians dont like to read. And also, Maybe thats what a librarian was, someone who lacked social skills. He heaps buckets of vitriol on people, only to proclaim at the end of the chapter how much he really likes them. Its like someone making a series of insulting comments, only to tack on at the end, Just sayin, as if that forgives all the cruel things said. He opens the book by saying that on his first day working at the library, he was warned about patrons looking at pornography on the computers and pleasuring themselves. Yet, some chapters later, after hes been working for a while, he writes about patrons and librarians alike being confused by the computers on the day the library first got them. He says he saves the day by assembling the machines. So how could he have been warned about patrons on the computers if the computers hadnt arrived yet? On page 100, I was stunned to come across this statement in a footnote: Things about the characters have been changed for their protection and to bring more humor to the story. At the end, in his six pages of acknowledgements, he says his memoir is true, Kind of Everything in this book happened (in footnote: though some in less exaggerated forms.) When, how and with whom it happened does not really matter, does it? If you have a problem with such exaggerations, then I recommend you stay away from the humor section of your local library or bookstore. Reading this book was akin to someone sitting next to you, continuously jabbing you with sharp elbows and poking you in the eyes, only to say, Just kidding! This book is in dire need of an editor, not just for content but also for continuity and spelling. (He writes that he makes his girlfriend a New York desert, which made me picture the citys streets filled with sand and cacti.)Read this insteadThe much better book is Don Borcherts Free for All: Oddballs, Geeks, and Gangstas in the Public Library ($21.95, Virgin Books). Despite the subtitle (publishers generally determine book titles), Mr. Borchert is not snarky like Mr. Douglas. He covers many of the same topics teens in the library, overdue fines and fees, questions at the reference desk, summer reading programs, food in the library but the writing is far superior. Although they might sound mundane (unless youre in the library business yourself), the author makes them entertaining. Mr. Borcherts prose is smooth; it takes you by the hand and you go along willingly. For example, a section about broken books is absolutely poetic: A patron comes in to check out a hot new bestseller, takes it home, puts it on his nightstand and opens it up later when the day is done. The book opens a little stiffly, because it is new and has never been opened before. The pages are crisp and bright white, and the cover is shiny, unmottled so far by coffee rings or trips to the beach. The patron gets comfortable in bed and opens the book it opens tentatively and the patron bends the open book backward until there is a satisfying crack and the book is a little more supple, a little easier to read. The book spine has just been broken, and a broken spine means a more submissive book. Immediately, the physics of a book are changed. It begins to slope and lean against itself, one way or the other, when it is closed. It drifts from a rectangular shape to more of a rhomboid. A small section of interior pages begins to bulge out past the hardboard cover as if it were going to seed, and these pages will tatter and discolor, eventually separating themselves completely from the rest of the book. A broken spine in a book, especially in a public library, means the book is beginning to die. He writes with insight, depth and humor; his chapter about two people who meet and fall in love in a library class for disabled adults is poignant and heartbreaking. Mr. Borchert includes a bibliography with his memoir, listing relevant books directly mentioned or just suggested by his previous chapters, complete with their Dewey decimel number. Librarians like books, he proclaims. They like to read them, critique them, order them from librarians catalogs and recommend them to other people and other librarians. This is normal behavior for a person in such a profession. He then lists five librarians Top 10 suggested books. If you love books and are grateful for libraries, youll love Free for All. l i e t o h nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

CONTRACT BRIDGEKeep your eye on the ball BY STEVE BECKERA declarer who wants to get the most out of his cards must of necessity keep close track of the defenders distribution. For example, examine this deal where West led the K-A and another club, ruffed by East and overruffed by South. Declarer crossed to the spade king and lost a heart finesse to Wests king, and West returned a trump. Having lost three tricks, South now had to avoid a spade loser to get home safely. He appeared to have two chances: If the diamonds were divided 3-3, the spade jack could be discarded on dummys fourth diamond; failing that, South could finesse the jack of spades (he could not see, as we do, that Wests queen was at this point singleton). But South also saw a third possibility, based on what he had already learned about the opponents hands from the early play. So after drawing a third round of trumps, he cashed his last trump, discarding a spade from dummy, and then played the A-K-Q of diamonds. This proved very illuminating. Although the diamonds did not divide 3-3, the contract was nevertheless assured. Declarers last two cards were the A-J of spades, while dummy still had the eight of diamonds and a spade. Easts last two cards, though unseen, were known to be the jack of diamonds and a spade. Furthermore, since West had shown up with six clubs, three hearts and two diamonds, he was known to have started with exactly two spades, one of which he had already played. And so, armed with the certain knowledge that each opponent at this point had only one spade, South led a spade to the ace and dropped Wests queen to make the contract.

The visuals pop in IMAX 3D, the action is clear and exciting, and Ms. Gadot is really coming into her own as Wonder Woman. Rated PG-13.Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush) Captain Jack Sparrow (Mr. Depp), his archenemy Salazar (Mr. Bardem), and frenemy Barbossa (Mr. Rush) seek the Trident of Poseidon, the possessor of which has total control of the ocean. Some plot elements are ingeniously inspired, and the action and visual effects are spectacular. Its the best Pirates movie since the first one. Rated PG-13.Baywatch (Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra) Stern lifeguard leader Mitch (Mr. Johnson) tries to get a new recruit (Mr. Efron) on board with his team concept as they search for a drug dealer (Mr. Chopra). Its all cheap thrills, which is expected, but none of it is satisfying in any way. Rated R.Chuck (Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Moss) In the mid-0s, New Jersey boxer Chuck Wepner (Mr. Schreiber) works his way through the ranks to a title shot with Muhammad Ali. Its based on the cool true story that served as Sylvester Stallones inspiration for Rocky. Rated R. Alien: Covenant (Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride) After landing on a planet they hope to colonize, members of the Covenant space vessel soon realize there are native aliens who dont want them there. This is much better than Prometheus (2012), as it tells a solid story with clarity and has riveting action. Rated R.The Wall (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, John Cena, Laith Nakli) American soldiers (Taylor-Johnson and Cena) in Iraq try to survive a deadly sniper (voice of Nakli) in late 2007. This is no-frills filmmaking at its finest tense, unrelenting, and endlessly captivating. Rated R.Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista) Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Pratt) wonders who his real father is as he and the Guardians once again save the galaxy. The 2014 original is 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 (Coogan), his brother Stan (Gere), and their wives (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.

THE OFBEST GULFSHOREthe 2017 6 6 LATEST FILMSMegan LeaveyIs it worth $10? YesThe first thing dog lovers will want to know about Megan Leavey, which tells the story of a Marine and her bombsniffing dog, is whether the dog makes it through the movie okay. BOLD Spoiler warning: skip to the next paragraph if you dont want/need to know. UNBOLD So here it is: The dog makes it through just fine. If you love dogs or animals and absolutely hate seeing anything bad happen to them, youll be OK. Based on a true story, this movie champions animals and rightfully doesnt use them for pathos. Its 2001 and 20-year-old Megan (Kate Mara) is a lost soul. She lives at home with her mother (Edie Falco), whom she cant stand, and her mothers deadbeat boyfriend (Will Patton), whom she despises. Her father (Bradley Whitford) is loving, but not around much. She has no job, and her best friend is dead. Life sucks. Megans answer is to join the Marines. Its good for her in terms of structure, discipline and respect for authority. After a rowdy night out shes assigned to clean the dog kennels, and the idea of working with the canines piques her interest. Her commanding officer (Common) eventually warms to her and allows her to work with bombsniffing dogs, which leads her to a German shepherd named Rex. At first Rex is an aggressive jerk, but soon the two bond and its off to Iraq they go. While there they complete more than 100 missions and save countless lives. Remember: Theyre not just on the frontlines; theyre in front of the frontlines, ensuring clear passage. There are many things to like about Gabriela Cowperthwaites (Blackfish) movie, including the love interest (Ramon Rodriguez) angle not being overplayed and the fact that were spared gender discrimination within the Marines. More emphasis on either element wouldve trivialized the drama with conventional plot points weve seen countless times before. Remaining focused on Megan and Rex, in contrast, highlights the connection between a Marine and her dog as they grow close and face grave danger, which is a much better story. There is action, and its fine, though its largely void of the visual effects adorning so many summer blockbusters these days. The importance of the action scenes, really, is to feel the tension as Megan and Rex confront lifeor-death situations. Some moments are quite perilous; others are downright nerve-racking and touching. The fact that any action scene connects on an emotional level is a win. In the simplest of terms, Megan Leavey is the story of a woman and her dog who save lives in Iraq. But as dog lovers will attest, Rex in many ways also saves Megans life by giving her purpose. Full disclosure: I do not count myself as a dog lover, but I did once have a German shepherd, so I related to Megan on a personal level. This movie is for anyone who has ever bonded with an animal. w R i b g i dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com >> The real Megan Leavey cameos as a boot camp drill instructor and also appears in the end credits with the real Rex.

Sometimes a word will come up and it makes to no sense to me, but it does to the person Im reading. Though shes been giving readings for as long as she can remember, Noreen underwent some psychic development training to learn how to manage her unusual connection to other people. Using only her first name, avoiding antique stores and disposing of negative energy after a reading are all practices she uses to control the messages she receives. She believes everyone has the same ability she does, just not very many people are open to it. A lot of people are afraid of it, she said. They cant get beyond their five senses. Others like herself, she added, are wide open. Theyre looking for spiritual guidance and healing. Theyre looking for answers. Noreen will conduct 15-minute floor readings for $20 and private, 30-minute readings for $45. Everything is confidential, she said, because shes trained to quickly forget everything about her sitters.Roy Burns, conscious channelerUnlike other people with psychic abilities, Roy Burns had no idea such a possibility existed and planned to pursue a military career like his father. He just happened to have a reading in the service that revealed he would likely pursue other paths. Now, 10 years later, hes a practitioner who provides a practical approach to finding happiness by melding psychology, psychic abilities and concrete steps to healing. He says people who are feeling stuck, unsure or just want some new information can be especially helped by his work. How it works is that its a my people talk to your people kind of deal. Your angels or your spirit guides or loved ones who cross over, they step forward to reveal paths to happiness or healing. He simply helps them hear the message clearly. Im very logical and practical and day-to-day, he said. We talk about what happiness is for you and how you define it, and I walk you through different options and pathways to see where happiness exists where youre not seeing it. Mr. Burns will provide 15-minute readings at the fair for $20. Kathy McGregor, clairvoyant/card readerKathy McGregor says she has always had her psychic abilities. In fact, her mother used to catch her talking to spirit when she was as young as 3 years old. As she got older, tarot cards became a channeling tool that augmented her natural abilities. I have God working with me and I know Im well covered, she said. Im honest and Im straight to the point, even when she has information the sitter doesnt want to hear. I know when I say something, it will happen. She wants people who are curious, but apprehensive, about having a reading to know theres nothing to be scared of. She simply can help them achieve some clarity about whats going on in their lives. Ms. McGregors 15-minute sessions at the fair will include a 21-card spread and a quick reading of angel cards, which she says communicate personal messages from archangels.

Paid: $20 for the large box, $10 for the small. The Skinny: Before there were automobiles, there were glove boxes. They might be made of metal, glass, porcelain or wood. Sometimes, they would be covered in a wood-burned design of pyrography. The smaller of these two boxes almost certainly was created as a glove box, designed to sit atop a dresser and hold you guessed it gloves. Pyrography is not something Ive much of lately in shops and at shows. The price was right, so I picked these pieces up. The designs are simple but well executed and the pieces are practical. Now to find a place to use them THE FIND:A pair of Flemish Art boxes COLLECTORS CORNER When fire and wood combined to make something beautiful It was the 1970s and crafts were all the rage. I lived in a neighborhood full of older people who loved to create macram wall hangings and plant holders, crochet beer cans into baseball caps and transform old greeting cards into elaborate decoupage-covered plaques, tables and boxes. My folks were more practical they wanted me to burn and break stuff. I must have been in fifth grade the Christmas they got me wood-burning and bottle-cutting kits. They thought I could make something neat. Unfortunately, they thought wrong. If I recall, that wood-burning set came with an electric pyrography pen, templates that could be traced onto wood and a few panels that were printed with the outline of some floral design. At that time, I had everything going for me but coordination. While I could paint and draw, tracing a design was difficult for a left-handed kid when all the manuals offered demonstrations by right-handed folks. I burned myself more often than I burned the wood, and every nail I hit went sideways and every board I cut was crooked. I had the same issues with the bottlecutting kit. For this, you placed the bottle horizontally on a stand and turned it against a blade that scored it. Then you rotated the scored area over a candle flame until the bottle broke and you sanded the sharp edges to use it as a drinking glass or candleholder. But the glass never broke cleanly for me and the kit ended up going to waste. I dont ever remember actually completing a project. As a result, I have nothing to show from my days as a budding crafter, though two dollhouse-scale privies, a boat and a raft I built sat for years in a diorama of downtown Fort Myers that was on display at the Southwest Florida Museum of History. Its because of my own history as a thwarted crafter that I am in awe of those who preceded me. The Flemish Art Co. of Brooklyn sold finished pyrographic works, as well as kits and tools to make the wares. The Art Nouveau movement was in full swing, and the designs tended toward the organic, with flowers and vines spilling over the surfaces. Housewives of the day used gaspowered pens to burn their designs into soft wood that was transformed into anything from small boxes and mirrors to large furniture pieces a South Florida store had a particularly fine desk with the image of a woman peering out from the side. Two boxes I recently acquired have a similar motif of flowers one actually is marked Flemish Art. I look at them and remain in awe that someone so long ago took the time w w c h a scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com to create a thing of beauty that remains a pleasure to behold a century later. And I smile at the memory of my own thwarted career as a crafter.

The room often had displays of skeletons, minerals, horns and plants, and some man-made fantasies like a mermaid or piece of the True Cross. Collections of medals, silverware, stamps, minerals and other unusual things were popular in later cabinets. The early elaborate rooms with unusual displays were a sign of social importance. A recent James Julia auction sold a Victorian birds eye maple specimen cabinet with carved trim, columns, cases, drawers of various sizes, locks, keys and a mirror. The cabinets sell quickly. Q: I have a coffee service made by the Ilmenau porcelain factory. The set includes a coffeepot, sugar shell and creamer, and five cups, saucers and cake plates. Ive never used it because of lead concerns. Are these safe to use? A: Porcelain has been made in Ilmenau, Germany, under various names since 1777. The factory is in business now as Neue Porzellanfabrik Ilmenau G.m.b.H. It was granted a patent for its method of decorating porcelain with metallic glaze before 1897. The formula included minium, also called red lead, a pigment that was form of lead tetroxide. The Food and Drug Administration set limits on the amount of lead in dishes in 1971, then stricter limits were set in 1993. Under the guidelines, dishes may contain minimal amounts of lead and still be considered safe. Dishes made before 1971 may contain more lead than what is now considered safe. Lead can leach out if the glaze is damaged or if acidic foods are cooked, served or stored in the dish. You can test the amount of lead in your dishes yourself by using a lead-testing kit, which is available at some hardware stores or online. Cups and hollowware pieces are considered lead safe if the tests show lead leaching is not more than 0.100 parts per million. Q: I have a doll that I would like to know more about. Its a boy doll, and the name Huck is on it. Magge Head K is on the back of the doll. He has painted red hair and a copyright date of 1973. Can you tell me what the head, arms and legs are made of? And can you tell me about the maker? A: Your doll depicts Huckleberry Finn, a character from the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. The shoulder head, lower arms and legs are made of porcelain, and the body is cloth. The doll was designed by Magge Head Kane, a Midwest U.S. doll artist who worked from the late 1950s into the 1980s. She specialized in realistic portrait dolls, and made many dolls that depict historical and storybook figures. Magge Head Kane was one of the founding members of the National Institute of American Doll Artists in 1963. Her dolls often are marked Magge Head, but some also have her married name. Her husband, Keith Kane, became her partner and helped to reproduce her dolls. Your doll is worth $50 to $75. Her Ike and Mamie Eisenhower dolls (1957) sold for $1,150. Tip : Decorators say you should think in threes. Accessories on a table look best when grouped in odd numbers. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The fresh haddock is pan-seared, placed atop a classic sauciers peach schnapps cream sauce and graced by a trio of lightly seared, sweet and tender Gulf of Mexico shrimp. A creative angel hair tart, the dishs divine co-star, is formed into a pillowlike warm cake with capellini, egg yolk, Parmesan and cream, then pan-sauted until crisp on the outside and lusciously tender inside. Add lightly crunchy broccoli, and this just might become your Sam-Buccos go-to dish, too. Start your continental-style dining with a luscious bruschetta, rich she-crab or meatless pea soup, a classic Caesar or the Capriciosa salad with house-made mozzarella, arugula and balsamic dressing. Wines are nicely priced, or have a drink from the full bar. One More Thing: Executive Chef Alfredo Fregosos masterful touch is apparent on every dish at Sam-Buccos.

His Brewer-Clifton winery is recognized as one of the finest producers of pinot noir and chardonnay in the Santa Barbara district. Specifically, he farms over 80 acres in the Sta. Rita appellation, and his wines consistently earn 90-plus points from critics. His 2012 pinot noir was No. 8 on Wine Spectators Top 100 list of 2014. He and his original partner Steve Clifton put together $10,000 to establish their winery in 1996 and he currently farms the four distinctive vineyards he owns. Today, partnering with Master Sommelier Ken Fredrickson, the winery produces four single vineyard chardonnays and six pinot noirs in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation outside Santa Barbara. The annual production is around 10,000 cases. Originally a French instructor at the University of Santa Barbara, Mr. Brewer began working in the Sta. Rita area in the 1990s as an assistant in a winery, and became seduced by the incredible winegrowing area. He made it his goal to produce his own wines in the district. What really attracted me, he remembers, was the fact that every wine I produce will be different. Theres a certain humility in never being able to reproduce ones work. Even though pinot noir is known as the heartbreak grape because its so difficult to grow, Mr. Brewer dived in. The challenge is the most interesting part of the process, he maintains. He ferments whole clusters, with no destemming because the stems moderate the sweetness of the pinot noir. And interestingly enough, the oak barrels he uses are up to 15 years old. He is striving for the pure flavors of the wine. According to Mr. Brewer, the wines should be in a neutral state, with no additives and as little interference from the winemaker as possible. Im after the pure flavors of the wine, he says. I want to remove the winemakers signature. At our winery its not about what we do to the wine its about what we dont do. Like every other winemaker Ive met, Mr. Brewer insists on respecting and focusing on the place where the grapes come from. We handle the fruit from each vineyard identically from harvest to bottling. This allows the true essence of the site to best be expressed. As I was writing this article, I received word that Mr. Brewer had sold his winery to Jackson Family Wines, a worldwide company that owns literally dozens of wineries across the globe. Ive always been dedicated to my work, says Mr. Brewer of the acquisition, and Ill still be at the helm of Brewer-Clifton as fulltime winemaker and brand ambassador. With Mr. Brewer remaining in charge, theres no doubt that his wines will maintain the reputation for quality and purity theyve enjoyed over the past 20 years. If you see them on the shelf, buy them. Lets move on to this weeks new discoveries.Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 ($16) A quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with a characteristic nose of grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus. Light peach flavors on the palate. Great with seafood. WS 89-90.BR Cohn Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard ($24) If you like em buttery and oaky, this is the wine for you. Deep yellow in the glass, with ar omas of butter for days. Think melon, crme brle and caramel. Nicely balanced for all that. WW 86.Viansa Chardonnay Carneros 2013 ($45) The other end of the butt er and oak spectrum, the Viansa is light, pale yellow in the glass, with a lean and minerallike flavor profile. Tart apple, pear and white peach. WW 86.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Is higher alcohol content any indication of higher quality in a wine? Rebecca W., Fort MyersA. Some wine grapes have enough fruit and structure to support high levels of alcohol. Zinfandel, for instance, is such a big wine that it can have over 15 percent alcohol and you wont notice it. Other grapes, like pinot noir, are more subtle and delicate, and high alcohol content will feel hot on the palate. Regardless of the percentage of alcohol, winemakers strive to make sure all the elements of their wines, like acidity, fruit, and other components are always in balance.

Heck, sometimes you cant even get a parking spot in the overflow lot a short walk away on Bonita Beach Road.The atmosphere is fairly typical Florida seafood shack casual and colorful, with little concern for ambience, fine furnishings or other pretensions. Theres nothing groundbreaking about the 23-year-old restaurant, although the menu has expanded to include glutenfree, low-carb and vegetable-centered options. The real attraction is the channel-side setting, which The Fish House takes full advantage of, with seating indoors under air conditioning, outdoors under cover with screens and even more tables completely in the open. That section can be uncomfortable in full sun, but we were ushered to a shady corner table where a slight breeze eased the early evening humidity. The Bonita location, opened in 1994, was the first of three Fish House restaurants. The Fort Myers Beach site launched a year later on the southern end of Estero Island, and the Sanibel outlet took over the old McTs Shrimp House in 2012. I havent had occasion to visit the other spots, but Ive been to the Bonita Beach Road Fish House a few times over the years. When all you need is a grouper sandwich with a cold adult beverage and a waterfront view, it will do nicely. If youre hungering for food thats a tad more ambitious, The Fish House aspires to meet your needs as well with offerings such as lobster mac and cheese, miso-glazed Chilean sea bass and wasabi-kissed crab cakes with Thai slaw. This dive bar-meets-fine dining approach succeeds much of the time. Given its appealing location, diners are likely to overlook some of the shortcomings. Service can be hit and miss. Our waitress asked about drinks as soon as we were seated, even though we hadnt been given a beverage menu. Entrees arrived before we were finished with appetizers, and used dishes werent cleared promptly. Some of the specialty cocktails are worth checking out. The Mango Crush Martini ($8.99) has a splash of pineapple juice to counter the sweetness of mango puree; the Dirty Pirate ($8) packs a punch with 151 rum, coconut rum, apricot brandy and pineapple juice. There are about a dozen wines available by glass and bottle, mostly supermarket varieties. The list of close to 20 appetizers holds few surprises: coconut shrimp, calamari, ceviche, wings, bam bam shrimp, steamed mussels and clams. We decided to try the ahi tuna ($12.99) because it had some intriguing-sounded touches. Like most ahi apps, the yellowfin was crusted with black and white sesame seeds and lightly seared we requested rare and rare it was. It came with two sauces, a creamy and mild cucumber-wasabi and a too-sweet honey mustard dip. It was nice to have two options for dipping. Not so nice was an errant scrap of aluminum foil that somehow got onto a slice of tuna luckily we saw it before biting into it. The hot blue crab and shrimp dip ($9.99) sounded good on paper, but it was so soupy that slid off the red and blue tortilla chips served on the side. Parmesan added richness, but the bowl contained just a few cocktail-sized shrimp and a couple of chunks of blue crab. The sandwich section of the menu covers a lot of territory. Gunning for grouper? You can get it grilled, blackened, jerked, fried, tucked into a taco or served reuben-style topped with Thousand Island dressing, cole slaw and Swiss cheese. We decided to go with a more traditional sandwich choice, a fried shrimp po boy ($16.99); lobster and fried oysters also are available as alternative fillings. The toasted hoagie contained a half-dozen large shellfish with a light cornmeal-based coating that crisped up nicely and sealed in the seafoods natural moisture. A drizzle of mayo infused with hot sauce added a tasty kick, while chopped tomatoes and romaine lettuce provided a good backdrop. Fries on the side were hot and crisp. The more than two dozen entrees include several grouper options as well as numerous seafood combo platters, seafood etouffee, spaghetti squash sofrito, steaks and Bering Sea king crab legs at $37 a pound. Is there a big demand for that in Southwest Florida? Patrons might be better off keeping it local, and there are few local fish better than hognose snapper, aka hogfish ($26.95), a recent addition to the menu. This mild-tasting, big-flaked fish is simply pan-seared and served with lemon butter sauce studded with capers and shallots, a preparation that lets the fresh fish speak for itself (they even leave the tail on so you know youre getting the real deal). Choice of two sides is included; the hush puppies were pretty dry inside, but a mlange of green beans, carrots and broccoli was perfectly sauted. Several of the desserts are made in house. We decided to share the Key lime pie-stuffed cheesecake ($8.99) because it was something different. It seemed like a good idea, but the pie had the same texture as the cheesecake and it wasnt tart enough to contrast the layers of bland cream cheese. I would encourage the kitchen to keep trying to perfect this unusual combination. Like several other aspects of our meal, it showed that The Fish Houses reach sometimes exceeds its grasp. But theres something to be said for a fish shack that aspires to raise the bar for this kind of restaurant.

4 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JUNE 8-14, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRontos development approach continues to energize TwinEaglesIn 2007, TwinEagles in North Naples was known for its mesmerizing beauty, the caliber of its golf, and the friendliness of its members. It was considered one of Naples up and coming communities. When the real estate market collapsed in late 2008, growth at TwinEagles subsided substantially. The financial stress created by the market collapse was felt throughout the community. In 2009, The Ronto Group visited the property to assess the possibility of a purchase and turnaround. What we saw was a community that was facing difficulties, said Ronto Executive Vice President Anthony Solomon. But we saw a community that had great bones. It was blessed with what we believe is the best residential golf club in Southwest Florida with the Talon Course. It had natural beauty with the preserve that surrounds it and the wildlife that is unequaled in Southwest Florida. It had a beautiful clubhouse. So we saw a great opportunity to reposition Twin Eagles, bring it back to its former glory and refocus it to being a true golfers community. In September 2010, Ronto finalized its purchase and assumed the role of developer at TwinEagles. Rontos development strategy focused on creating a golf-centric lifestyle within a traditional country club model. The first step was enhancing the communitys two golf courses. The Talon course was regarded as the jewel of the community and remains so today. The second course was not up to Rontos standards. They worked with golf course architect Steve Smyers to create a new course. When the new Eagle course opened, it was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. Ronto recognized TwinEagles needed amenities to complement its 47,000 square-foot clubhouse and the verandahs that overlook the finishing holes of both courses. The Clubhouse also offers a heralded fine dining experiences under the direction of award-winning Executive Chef Chas Tatigian. To expand the amenity offering, Ronto designed and built a new resort-style swimming pool and 6,430-square foot fitness center. An outdoor Tiki lounge and dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are located adjacent to the pool. To solidify TwinEagles golf-centric lifestyle, Ronto took a bold step that has enhanced the value of ownership even further. Twin Eagles has two golf courses and 600 members, said Solomon. From the beginning, we included a golf membership with every newly constructed home sale. We created great value for home owners within the community because the membership is attached to the home and transfers. By doing this, we assured the long term viability and success of the club that will be transferred to the owners at no cost at sellout. Today, just seven years after finalizing its purchase of the community, Rontos efforts continue to energize TwinEagles and to solidify its position as arguably Naples most compelling luxury real estate offering. TwinEagles glistening lakes, towering oaks, stately palms, and majestic fairways continue to offer unparalleled beauty. The community is now 80% sold, yet luxury homebuyers remain captivated by the combination of readily available home sites set against TwinEagles stunning tableau, the array of amenities designed and built during Rontos tenure, the award-winning golf experience, and a diverse residential product offering that includes carriage homes, single-family residences, and grand estate homes on home sites ranging from nearly an acre to over two-acres. Purchase opportunities remain available in every product category, including carriage homes in Pulte Homes Covent Garden neighborhood; singlefamily homes in Lennar Corporations Kinross neighborhood and Minto Floridas Dundee neighborhood; custom estate homes by Stock Signature Homes and A.R.B.C. Arthur Rutenberg Homes on 90 x 160-feet in the Hedgestone neighborhood or south or west-facing lakefront home sites 110-feet wide and 150-feet deep with views of a 34-acre lake in Lake Estates; and grand estate residences in TwinEagles Sterling Hill neighborhood. A thirty-foot setback ensures residences will be at least sixtyfeet apart on Sterling Hills stunning Legacy Home Sites. The Ronto Group is providing those intent on enjoying a refined grand estate lifestyle an unprecedented opportunity to build their custom dream home with the builder of their choice. The ability to personally select a custom grand estate homebuilder, plus the combination of the site sizes that measure from nearly an acre to over two-acres, pricing that ranges from $632,500 to $775,000, the natural setting, and the golf membership included with every new-build home purchased within TwinEagles presents a rare opportunity for those intent on living a grand estate lifestyle. The Legacy Home Sites are situated along TwinEagles Talon golf course that will host the Chubb PGA Champions Tour golf tournament for the seventh consecutive year and 12th time overall next February. TwinEagles has been recognized by Boardroom magazine as a Distinguished Emerald Club, a designation accorded to the top five-percent of private clubs throughout the world. The magazine developed the award program to help vitalize and preserve the institution of private clubs by fostering a ceaseless drive to improve the member experience provided by private clubs worldwide. To be a Distinguished Emerald Club, the club must provide a member experience at a level attained by only the finest clubs in the world. Boardrooms criteria for member experience include intangible quality, service quality, governance quality, facility quality, and product quality. The Ronto Group is also developing Naples Square, the Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay, and Orange Blossom. A new project located on Central Avenue in downtown Naples is in development.

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. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, was recently hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. The Manchester, England native has worked in the cities of London and Atlanta, as well as on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. More than 20 years ago he moved to Naples and has been associated with some of the finest Beach and Golf Clubs in the area. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. Kalea Bay residences have very open floor plans.

From major new construction and models to smaller redesigns, she has brought her uniquely talented eye to projects not only locally, but to international locations in Canada, Ireland and her native Jamaica. Luxe Livings Michael Korb spoke to her about her profession and experiences. Q: Is there a moment you can look back on that was the moment you decided you wanted to be an interior designer? A: As a child I had always shared a bedroom with my younger sister. Then when I was about 11 years old, my mother let me have my own bedroom and allowed me to decorate it the way I wanted. I loved the experience and was pleased as punch with the results. After that, there was no stopping me. I became very sensitive to my surroundings, always trying to re-organize things to suit my taste. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: I think it is a gift I inherited from some very talented designers/architects in my family. I was also given free reign in the garden and learned how to make beautiful flower arrangements. As a young girl, I helped many of my friends decorate their rooms. It was no surprise when I decided to study interior design at college in London. I married young, and as I moved from cottage to little house to bigger house, people would always ooh and ahh over the gardens and interiors I created. That was in Jamaica. When I moved to Atlanta, I did a two-year course in interior design at Atlanta Area Tech and then opened my own business, International Accents Inc.SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 leaves her design mark on interiors around the worldVANESSA RODGERS / COURTESY PHOTODESIGNER Q&A le in ta te al th h fl A m r VANESSA RODGERS / COURTESY PHOTO VANESSARODGERS/COURTESYPHOTO Jinx McDonald BONITA SPRINGS | BRANDON | CLEARWATER | FT.

4 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q: Tell us a little about your design experiences. A: Naples has been my permanent home for more than 25 years now, and I am really proud of the achievements and reputation of my company. Ive done some truly exciting projects over the years, and all so different, from a completely green totally off the grid family compound at Governors Harbour in the Bahamas to a picturesque home in the Iriah countryside of Connemara, complete with conservatory and a tea station overlooking the most magnificent view of the Atlantic. I designed a huge mountaintop home in Colorado, with a heated driveway and an incredible barn, fully stocked with horses, donkeys and goats (I will never forget you, Gladys!). I have delivered and installed furniture to several holiday homes on Block Island, R.I., by ferry (totally stressful); delivered and installed furniture by buck-hoist to condos in Naples highrises under construction; renovated the old Spanish fort, ringed with the original cannons, on the point at Discovery Bay, Jamaica. I have been flown by private jet to New York with clients who have had famous designers and stores open privately for our shopping; and Ive done one of the five most expensive seaside estates in the United States. Overall, it has been a lot of very un-glamorous blood, sweat and tears, mixed with moments of sheer terror and/or ecstatic joy. Q: What questions do you ask clients during your first meeting? A: There are a couple of crucial questions I ask a potential client at the first meeting: What is their lifestyle? Do they live formally or do they lounge around with feet up? Do they have children? Is this going to be their permanent residence or a holiday home for a few weeks per year? What is their budget? How much do they imagine spending on their new home? These are all equally important questions, and I dont move forward until they have been sorted. One client took me so seriously she flew me and my assistant to Vancouver for 24 hours to view their lifestyle. Unfortunately, the Canadian immigration authorities didnt quite get this, and we spent many valuable hours being interrogated at the airport before we were allowed entry to Canada. Anyway, Vancouver was checked off my bucket list. The budget question is, of course, a very sensitive one, and most people have no idea what finishing and furnishing a home can cost. I am extremely thankful for the clients who have done a little research before calling me. Q: Do you have a formula for how you build out a room? A: The very first thing I consider when designing a room is the outlook: Which direction does it face and what is the view? I am always wary of westfacing rooms on the Gulf of Mexico with lots of harsh sunlight on huge glass windows or doors. This will have a big impact on my choice of fabrics, colors and window treatments. The purpose of the room is extremely important, too. If it is to be the main TV room, then that affects the direction the seating units must face and makes the specification of window treatments even more crucial. I think it is skills in anticipating and solving potential problems like this that differentiates a good designer from a poor one.

6 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIts a story as old as time itself: Naples condo owner hires talented interior designer to end said owners long journey through Tuscany. When the owner of this 18th floor residence in La Scala at the Colony in Bonita Springs called interior designer Pamela Durkin, she had already been living with the formerly popular Italian dcor for close to seven years. Its safe to say that although the furnishings were well done originally, the owner wanted to put her own stamp on her surroundings. She had purchased the home fully furnished, so she inherited some things and then brought in some of the other things, Ms. Durkin says. The interesting part of this project is that we retained a lot of elements that she loved and made use of many pieces of furniture that she loved. I am a big proponent of keeping pieces that you love and getting rid of the pieces that you dont. Its a good cleansing process. And while some rooms of the 3,000-square-foot home were outfitted with totally new furniture and accessories (such as the family room, which got a remarkable faux grass cloth treatment), the formal living room and dining room saw extensive rehabilitation. For example, some pieces of art were reframed to unload their heavy, ornate gold frames. And Ms. Durkin moved the large living room piece lower (its now sitting just 15 inches above the floor), making it much more prominent. I love big pieces of art, the designer says. They can add a very strong look. In addition, living-room chairs that were originally upholstered in gold silk were recovered in plain chenille. And in the dining room, all of the owners original furniture was kept, albeit with alterations: The chairs were recovered and the base of the table (which was originally brown and gold) refinished in a silver leaf. A new LED chandelier was installed to give the space a more modern vibe. But there was a lot more to this remodel than just recovering a few pieces of furniture and reframing some artwork. Ms. Durkin removed a wall from the kitchen in order to help make the space more manageable, then replaced the kitchen tile flooring with matching hardwoods from the main living area. She also modified the soffits to better define the spaces and incorporated a drapery pocket along the sliders. Meanwhile, the kitchen went from dark cherry to soft white cabinetry. She really wanted a change, Ms. Durkin says. We had a discussion about whether to keep the island the same color (as the rest of the new cabinetry), but I thought it would be boring. I knew having something nice and dark would be great. She was right (as the photo at top attests). Another nice touch to the curved island: double-stacking the granite surface at the edges, which makes it appear much thicker than standard. Pendant lights add a bit of sparkle, but most of the kitchens dazzle can be attributed to the backsplash of glass tiles in light blues, dark blues and greens that shimmer in the light and pay homage to the water view below. She wanted to clean it up overall and for it to look beautiful, Ms. Durkin says of the client. But she also wanted it to be comfortable. She didnt want people to think they couldnt sit on anything. And she loves colors and wanted to incorporate the colors from the large piece of art in the living room. She wanted them pulled out, but in a sophisticated way. All in all, it feels like Tuscany was a long, long time ago. Pamela Durkin Designs 2016 Trade Center Way 594-9798; www.pamela-durkin.comMAKEOVEROut with the old almostRepurposing gives quality furniture new life and makes a renovation at once new and familiarThis La Scala at the Colony condo went from dated Tuscan to modern sophisticate thanks to the talented eye of interior designer Pamela Durkin. Now the interior rivals that gorgeous view. Some of the homeowners original furnishings were of such good quality that Ms. Durkin was able to give them new life. For example, the living and dining room chairs benefitted from reupholstery, and the dining room table base was recoated in silver leaf to make it totally fresh.

8 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY AMBER FREDERICKSON PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf you dont mind getting your hands dirty, there are many opportunities to be had in the Naples real estate market. And Tommy Houchin of Houchin Construction is a bit more willing to get into it than most. When he renovated a house on Diana Avenue a couple years ago with the intention of flipping, his parents liked it so much they moved in. And when the house across the street became available, Mr. Houchin realized that with a little elbow grease it could be something special that he would like to keep for himself. I fell in love with the backyard, he says. I bought the lot because I loved the oak trees. There is a large oak that has been there for years that we basically designed the house around. The plan was to keep as much of the original 1968 block structure as possible. After taking off the roof and running into cast iron sewer pipes, however, the project more or less became a new build. Like we said, Mr. Houchin doesnt mind getting his hands dirty. I have always loved mid-century modern, he says. And I wanted something that fit into the neighborhood and wasnt like this big monster. It looks like it could have been here for years but its new. He worked with architect Josh Valle (who now works for Houchin Construction) to create the fourbedroom, three-bath, 2,400-square-foot (under air) home you see here. It also has a detached cabana and full outdoor kitchen. Gone are the 8-foot ceilings of the claustrophobic original ranch-style home, replaced with a light, airy, vaulted roof and lovely open spaces. I love that it has a lot of natural light, says Mr. Houchin. I like the clerestory angular windows in the living area. And the cypress tongue-and-groove wood ceilings. We also did the soffits in the same direction, so when you are sitting inside the house, it looks like the ceiling goes all the way through the walls. Adding to the style, they incorporated LED tape lighting in the soffits instead of recessed can lights Top: Homeowner/contractor Tommy Houchin of Houchin Construction took the dark ranch-style block house that formerly sat on this site and transformed it into a stunning mid-century modern showplace.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JUNE 2017 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORYalong the main roof. It gives the edge a funky glow that looks cool from the street and the outdoor living areas. Its an easy house to entertain in and an easy house to maintain, says Mr. Houchin. It opens up really well, so you can have a lot of people at the cabana, the fireplace, the outdoor living space or the kitchen and bar and living room. But its not a huge house. And its very private in the back. And though its perfectly integrated, the cabana, which incorporates the outdoor kitchen, was actually an afterthought. After the main structure went up and Mr. Houchin and Mr. Valle looked at the two oak trees out back, they got out a measuring tape to see if they could fit a cabana between them. It morphed into something with a full kitchen and even a TV for outdoor movie nights. Pretty cool. Inside, the open concept makes everything accessible and convenient. I wanted to keep it one floor, says Mr. Houchin, whos not a fan of twostory, box-like homes. And this doesnt look overly built. Its deceiving when you walk in. It is larger than it looks. Walking through the front door puts guests immediately into the middle of the action, as the great room and kitchen are focal points. In fact, the kitchen is almost a jewelry box tucked into the space, delighting the eyes with an azul calcite backsplash over white quartz surfaces on the counter and island. The brightness is balanced by the English white oak flooring. Blue counter-height chairs (chosen by designer Kelli Sultan of KVS Interior Design, as were most of the furnishings and accessories) give a dash of color along the kitchen island. The main living and dining area is highlighted by a coffee table that was originally the trunk of a massive tree. They burn it to char it dark and then they wipe it with a sealer so it doesnt chalk anymore, Mr. Houchin explains The master suite takes an artistic approach to minimalism, with sparse furnishings keeping the long lines of Mr. Valles architectural design. Linnear venting keeps things cool both literally and guratively. Mr. Houchin fell in love with the property because of its backyard, replete with two stunning live oaks. So architect Josh Valle literally designed the house around the trees, making the home feel as though it could have been on the street for decades. Interior designer Kelli Sultan added furnishings that are both modern and organic. The coffee table in the living room is the trunk of an old tree that was charred and then sealed.SEE MID-CENTURY, PAGE 10

10 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COVER STORY about the eye-catching coffee table. It weighs somewhere between 300 and 500 pounds. The floating shelves above the fireplace are made from the same charred wood. The dining table is also a live edge piece, but remains raw and uncharred. The entire space is a perfect example of a mid-century modern revival. Adding to the organics is a large, saltwater aquarium that Mr. Houchin maintains himself. Having been born and raised in Naples, Ive always had a love for sea life and decided for this new house, Id get a tank, he says. I tell everybody who says, Oh man, your tank is so cool I should get one Well, if youre comfortable with buying a $100 fish and watching it die in three weeks, then you need to get into it. If not, its not for you. Ouch. But it does look cool. And out front, the home is just as impressive, incorporating horizontal windows and tapered rooflines that compliment the sectioned slab driveway. It was Joshs idea to incorporate three different elements on the exterior, Mr. Houchin says. We decided on stucco, brick and lap siding. And we kept that theme for the outdoor kitchen and everywhere else. It just creates a unique look when you use three elements. Given that the original structure was low, dark, dated and hidden, this new home is a welcome and stylish addition to Diana Avenue. Very cool, indeed.

But you might not realize that the stores owner is far more inspiring than any exquisite piece within. You see, Angela Lossias story is a moving example of perseverance in the face of adversity. She moved to the area in 2006 to be a manager of a business at Miromar Design Center. By 2009, however, thanks to the economic downturn, she was out of a job and living on unemployment. But she had made such an impression on the Miromar management team that they called her up and asked her to open her own showroom in the center. I said, With what? My $300 a week? Ms. Lossia recalls with a smile. Despite her finances, she took a chance on herself, accepting the offer and using what little savings she had to buy some accessories and lamps. I thought, Well, I can only go up, she says. Thanks to her talent, the business grew. But in 2014, the unimaginable happened. Her pregnant daughter had a medical emergency that required doctors to induce early labor on Easter Sunday. In order to be with her daughter, Ms. Lossia had her son, Tom, drive her to he airport so she could fly up north for the delivery. Though the baby was born perfectly healthy, Tom, a seemingly healthy, strong, muscular young man, died that night in his sleep from an undiagnosed heart defect. He was 33. Within a few hours, Ms. Lossia went from elation to despair. It would have been easy to just give up from sheer heartbreak. Instead, she persevered and decided to risk everything on moving her business from the design center in Estero to North Naples, where it opened to the public with five interior designers. Now the stylish boutique is thriving SHOP TALKAngela Fine Furnishings showcases elegance and style with a healthy dose of inspirationAngela Fine Furnishings owner Angela Lossia is a big fan of sparkle when it comes to accessories.

What she created is a beautiful 3,500-square-foot space (a quarter of the size of her Miromar storefront) that appeals to discriminating buyers looking for something different. If you want something new and innovative, she says, we mix transitional with a touch of rustic, organic with contemporary. And though shes not a designer, she picks every item. After all, her name is on the sign. And you can buy right off the floor, whether its a sofa or a vase that catches your eye. Of course, much of her business is custom orders, so she can get anything you might need, whether its in house or not. The store is eye candy, the proud proprietor says. Even if you dont need anything, you should come and see. I believe in sparkle. I buy a lot of metals: silver, gold, overleaf, anything with little sparkle. Were upscale, but affordable. And dont forget inspirational. Angela Fine Furnishings 14700 Tamiami Trail N., Suite 3, North Naples 390-2300 www.angelafinefurnishings.comFrom large pieces such as beds and sofas to smaller accessories and art, Ms. Lossia has designed the store to be pure eye candy. She invites people to stop in even when they dont need anything, just to get some ideas on how to change up their spaces. Though this store is much smaller than her former location at Miromar Design Center, the boutique vibe of the space makes a visit feel like a treasure hunt each and every time.
