Patton Jr. would have detested Donald J. Trump given the very different temperaments, talents and moral compasses of these men, in my view. But when I said it in a column (Florida Weekly, May 31, George Pattons politics), the notion was greeted with howls of rage. From Susan: I just saw your article, in which you called President Trump a whore. I suggest you consult a grief counselor youre still grieving and mourning the loss of your candidate Crooked Hillary. Right now, you are in the name-calling, insult-hurling stage of mourning. From Jamie Alvarez, MD: I do not know how this garbage piece you wrote passed the sniff test. ... Had anyone in The News-Press or whatever outlet written a piece like this, he or she would have been lambasted and even called a racist. You are just shrill, un-funny and very rude you only rudely (or serpiginously) referred to Mr. Trump as bombastic, and then a whore, and then a draft dodger (a la Clinton),and finally a liar You ought to be ashamed of yourself. From Tommy Lee Cook: Patton would have loved Trump ... He would be free to annihilate like Mad Dog has. PolitiFact has been shown to be a very biased site. The Russian thing is a Podesta baby. No evidence, zip. From Ed Bennett: Geez Roger, why didnt you compare Obama and even better Bill or Hillary Clinton with Pattons viewpoint? Maybe an honest assessment of a Democrat might have you calling one of them a whore also? From Foster Thorpe: I read your opinion this morning and it shows bigotry on your part. The problem today is opinions like yours dont serve any common good. I was taught before you cast negative information find some good about someone. Your article serves no purpose except to keep the flames of hatred ongoing. From Padgett: I believe a better more telling question would be: Dad, who do you think Gen. George Patton would have voted for, Clinton or Trump? Emmmmmmmmh! That might have told a truer story of who Gen. Patton really was. From Mike Norvilas: I did NOT enjoy your column. Wake up/ grow up. From S.G. Wilson: This Russian thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, Trump said You write, All lies. Do you know of evidence there was collusion between Trump and the Russian government? Can you share it with your readers? From JD: Dear Roger, very sad today thought you were a fair, unbiased guy seems you have forgotten the real whoppers of all time: I never had sex with that intern which re-defined oral genital pleasuring as a nonsex act. Thanks, Bill! From Roger (a response): I thank any reader for being galvanized to write. These letters are passionate, sometimes funny, often angry and in my view quite reasonable, at times. Let me share a few thoughts about them. First: If Im going to compare Mr. Trump to Gen. Patton, for example, why not also compare him to Mr. Obama, either of the Clintons or other leaders of the past? Thats a good question. The answer is, their time is gone. Mr. Trump, however, is our political point man in the here and now. Our fate depends in part on his leadership. Every question, every comparison, every skeptical eye directed at him and at the lay of the land he leads us through now is justified and necessary. Am I merely being negative? No, because criticizing is a form of seeing and analyzing, not merely denigrating. A jet mechanic is a critic and a skeptic. He looks at the system he serves, a complex engine, with the most critical eye. If he doesnt, trouble will follow. Second: PolitiFact, the fact-checking creation of the Tampa Bay Times that researches statements of politicians from any party, is one of the most unbiased sources of information on the planet, according to the non-partisan watchdog www.mediabiasfactcheck.com. Calling PolitiFact the gold standard for lack of bias, it lists roughly 100 American and international print and electronic publications or on-air productions that meet the following criteria: These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. Third: Russia, led by Vladimir Putin, is the villain in an unprecedented 2016 assault on our voting process that continues to leave the United States stunned and flatfooted. Mr. Trump has failed to r espond, let alone to challenge Mr. Putin or other Russian leaders. He and his family have longstanding, identifiable financial relationships with Russian oligarchs and supporters of Mr. Putin. Mr. Trump has sought to hide those connections, just as he has hidden his tax history and all of that is demonstrable. This Russian thing with Trump and Russia, as the president put it, is decidedly not made up. But the president claims it is. Mr. Wilsons inference is correct, however: We dont know if Mr. Trump colluded in advance in the Russian effort to alter the election, or in some other way. I appreciate being reminded of that. Finally, I am also grateful for letters of praise. From Allen Burgess: Just want to tell you that I enjoyed the article and it was very informative. I look forward to future articles. Again, thank you. From Cheryl Nelson: As the wife of a veteran of 20 years in the Marines and two tours of Vietnam, I am appalled by Trump and his version of Greatness. Your article was concise and hit the nail on the head. Thank you for your insight. O t e y roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

How bad could that be? The Kaiser Health Foundation tells us, in those good old days, 52 million adults under age 65 or 27 percent of that population fell into the medical abyss of pre-existing health conditions. If you have applied for health insurance, you know pre-existing conditions can be a minefield and blow your chances of getting coverage. They are a literal kiss of death. Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act bans the use of pre-existing conditions by insurance companies as an underwriting practice. It also bans states from allowing insurance companies to exclude essential health services from their policies. These exemptions provide coverage most sane people would agree policies should cover such as preventive care or medical interventions that keep you on the right side of healthy lab tests, inand out-patient care, and care before and after the birth of a child, for example. Before Obamacare, insurance companies favored a risk pool restricted to mostly healthy people. These were men and women in their salad days for whom medical issues were the least worrisome. From the customer side of the experience, if you needed sustained care, medical treatments or were likely to croak on the companys watch, you were unlikely to have a policy and an affordable cost. In other words, no sick or potentially sick, or on-their-way-tobeing sick people should apply. It was a good deal for insurance companies but not so much for the American people. It all comes home to roost when you experience a medical blip. Your heart starts palpitating, you break a hip or cancer strikes. Your luck runs out. Being uninsured or holding a policy with riddled coverage puts your neck squarely under a guillotine poised to chop if off. So, with these experiences in mind, and the value-added of hindsight, many Americans who once enthusiastically supported blowing up the ACA are stricken by buyers remorse. Their worst fears have come to fruition. The U.S. House of Representatives passed by a slim margin the American Health Care Act. It is an awful bill. It guts Medicaid and undoes the consumer protections the ACA provides. As The New York Times puts it, conservatives seek to lower health care premiums by taking away the access of 23 million people to medical services and use the savings to give an $880 billion tax break to the rich. Floridas House Republicans have their fingerprints all over the AHCA. Ledyard King, USA Today, reported the AHCA would have failed if three Florida Republican House members, who originally opposed an earlier version of the bill, had not switched their vote to a yes. The defectors were Ron DeSantis, FL-6, Bill Posey, FL-8, and Ted Yoho, FL-3, all members of the Freedom Caucus, a group of radical right House members who wield an outsized influence in the House. Ten million low-income Americans are protected by the expansion of Medicaid as authorized by the ACA. Ninety percent of the costs are paid by the feds. Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia participated in the expansion. But not Florida. The Florida Policy Institute predicted, had Florida taken the expansion deal, it would have injected $16.7 billion into Floridas economy between 2017-2023 and created 54,000 jobs in the health care industry. That didnt happen. Another consequence was that 567,000 Floridians who qualified for coverage under the expansion didnt get it. Medicaid expansion would have cured the coverage gap affecting their eligibility, i.e., having income too low to qualify for financial assistance through the federal insurance marketplace, and, because of Floridas eligibility rules, too high to qualify for Medicaid. Florida left billions on the table, lost thousands of jobs and put an untold number of lives at risk. Should the AHCA bill survive in some version, the states failure to expand Medicaid will continue to bite back. The federal funding it would receive under the AHCA will be capped at a substantially lower rate than the states that did take advantage of the opportunity. Thats because the AHCAs proposed spending limit known as per capita caps fixes the amount of federal subsidy a state will receive for its Medicaid programs. States can continue Medicaid but they can kiss goodbye the subsidy Obamacare now provides. States can exceed the ceiling set by the AHCA, but the overage comes out of their own pocket. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, an article in the Miami Herald reports Floridas rate of Medicaid enrollment among the disabled and lowincome seniors the most expensive populations to cover under the program has risen much faster over the last decade in Florida than the national rate by 35 percent as compared to a national average of 17 percent. That means the affordable health care for a growing proportion of the states population is on life support; and the Republican majority is at their bedsides, ready to pull the plug.

Email her at llilly@floridaweekly. com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com Can Wonder Woman just be Wonder Woman?In the new Wonder Woman movie, the heroine is mystified by the ways of humankind and she doesnt even read the internet. The fevered commentary about the new hit film raises the question, Cant an Amazonian superhero wield her Lasso of Truth and bullet-deflecting bracelets while wearing an up-armored version of a figure-skating outfit without inciting more battles in the culture war? This being contemporary America, the answer is, Of course not. The critics have swooned, and some of them have literally cried over the movie. This is a bit much. The advancement of women in this country, or even just in Hollywood, didnt depend on the production of a better female superhero vehicle. Nor is it unusual anymore to see women beat up villains on screen. This hasnt stopped people from losing their minds a new American core competency over Wonder Woman. Why doesnt she have armpit hair? Summarizing this controversy that erupted when the trailer was released, The New York Times wrote that the lack of body hair on the female warrior makes us wonder if feminism was swept aside in favor of achieving the ideal female aesthetic. (The Wonder Woman character has existed for about 75 years and has never once sported armpit hair.) Did you know that lead actress Gal Gadot is Israeli and served in the Israel Defense Forces? Lebanon certainly noticed. It banned the film. Actress Gina Rodriguez tweeted her disapproval, then deleted her tweet under internet pressure. Then there are the clashing interpretations of the movie. Its a masterpiece of subversive feminism, according to The Guardian. No, its not, according to a writer in Slate, who complains of its prevailing occupation with the titular heroines sex appeal. Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, is the spawn of the gods, and such creatures tend to have better-than-average looks, especially when they are depicted in major motion pictures. As for her outfit, most superheroes are distinguished by their inappropriate, physique-bearing costumes, and why would a self-confident Amazonian be different? The movie is certainly a feminist allegory. Diana is doing just fine on the all-female island of Themyscira when a dude shows up, a wayward American pilot who crash-lands. Then everything goes wrong. She ends up leaving with him into the human world, where she confronts and spoofs mystifying practices (woman squeezing into corsets, councils of war excluding women, etc.) and where World War I rages. This is catnip for feminists, but surely what accounts for the films runaway success is its traditional elements. A thread throughout is the lighthearted cross-cultural romance between the fearsomely powerful, if nonetheless feminine, Diana (she delights at babies, ice cream and snowflakes) and her human love interest. Diana is an admirably idealistic instrument of outraged innocence. Her Amazonian ethic means she rejects dishonesty and cynical maneuvering. She doesnt exactly fight against the Germans so much against warfare in general. But she is righteous and brave. By the end, Diana comes to realize that humankind is worth saving, despite our flaws. Perhaps the least of them, although an annoying one, is our inability to simply enjoy a deft, entertaining summer blockbuster. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Sale through 06-18-17.Salt marsh mosquito numbers highest since late 1980sThe Collier Mosquito Control District continues to see high numbers of salt marsh mosquitoes through its surveillance program and is scheduling missions to control the aggressive biters. The habitat that produces these mosquitoes is so abundant to the south and east of Naples, the pests are coming off the mangroves in broods easily numbering in the trillions, and southerly winds are bringing them into populated areas. In a typical year, we dont normally see these mosquitoes in such abundance, said Patrick Linn, CMCD executive director. The last time we had a salt marsh mosquito season this bad in Collier County was in the late 1980s, when they killed a ranchers cattle by suffocating them. The salt marsh mosquito, or Aedes taeniorhynchus, does not transmit the Zika virus, but is capable of vectoring dog heartworm. The winter drought is believed to be a major factor in the current proliferation, and the high tides and full moons during the past weeks have created ideal conditions for their breeding habitat in the state and federally protected acreage throughout southern Collier County. Winds from the south have enabled these mosquitoes to infiltrate many portions of the county; it isnt uncommon for them to travel up to 40 miles on wind currents. CMCD is not permitted to apply larvicides in those protected areas, so targeting the flying adults is the only option for mitigating their populations. While our area greatly needed last weeks rains, it forced us to cancel some of our scheduled treatments, Mr. Linn said. Weather is the single most critical factor in our ability to treat, he added. We must look at every aspect from wind direction and speed to sky conditions, and the cancellations were disappointing. A longer-term drop in their numbers is expected after this current brood, and an increase in fresh water mosquito populations will begin when summer rains create standing water. In the meantime, the district recommends minimizing time spent outdoors during dusk/dawn (the most active times for mosquitoes); using a repellent with DEET in it (or options such as picaridin, IR 3535 or oil of lemon and eucalyptus); wearing clothing that covers the most skin, when reasonable; and draining standing water in items around the yard or home. Residents are encouraged to visit www.cmcd.org or to use the districts mobile application to check the treatment schedule maps and time, as well as to report nuisance mosquitoes and sign up for notifications of upcoming treatments. OFF! maker donates repellent for distribution by food bankThe Harry Chapin Food Bank will distribute 80,000 units of OFF! mosquito repellent through August to those in need throughout its service area of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. The mosquito repellent donation, from maker SC Johnson, will help combat and prevent Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases. The local distribution is part of a larger donation of 540,000 units that will be provided statewide by the Feeding Florida network of food banks. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is a member of Feeding Florida. As we enter the rainy season here in Southwest Florida, we want to be sure that we prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases like Zika, especially among the poorest and most vulnerable of our neighbors, says Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. This donation will make a lot of difference where it is most needed. OFF! distributions at local Harry Chapin Food Bank mobile pantries include one from 3-5 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, at East Naples Park, 3500 Thomasson Drive in Naples. Additional mobile pantry distributions are being coordinated throughout the mosquito season. The food bank is also making the repellent available to all of its more than 150 partner agencies, which can order OFF! through the food banks online ordering system. The Feeding Florida statewide network of food banks is critical in mobilizing the necessary resources tailored to meet the needs of each community, says Robin Safely, executive director of Feeding Florida. We are excited to partner with SC Johnson to provide our communities with the education and prevention tools necessary to protect families from mosquitoes and reduce the spread of Zika and other mosquitoborne diseases. There are currently no areas of ongoing, active transmission of Zika in Florida. However, the Florida Department of Health website advises residents and visitors to remain vigilant about wearing mosquito repellent and about draining all sources of standing water to keep mosquitoes from breeding. In 2016, the total number of Zika cases reported in Southwest Florida was 45 and all were travel-related, according to the Florida DOH. The county breakdown was 28 in Collier, 15 in Lee; two in Charlotte; and none in Glades or Hendry. So far this year, the total number of Zika cases confirmed to have been acquired inside the state of Florida is four. The number acquired by Florida residents traveling outside of Florida is 52, and the origin of 12 other cases is undetermined, according to the Florida DOH.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYnights of pot ential lost lodging in hotels and motels, and the loss of a $2.3 billion boost to the states gross product. Instead, they went to California, Louisiana or Georgia, says John Lux, executive director of Film Florida, a nonprofit trade organization. There, money paid out in tax incentives brings in significantly more in spending, officials say. Anytime a (Hollywood or New York) studio or producer called a local Florida film producer and said, Hey, wed like to bring this project to your area and we know our needs, budgets and time frame, wed have to get to the financial conversation. We dont offer incentives anymore. But they could go to Georgia or New Orleans and get incentives. So they did. The makers of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, for example, which grossed $818 million at the box office since its opening last month, looked at Florida but went to Georgia. Like 35 other states in the nation, the Peach State, in effect, pays filmmakers who choose to shoot there. The monetary incentives are so attractive that Georgia now surpasses California and New York in total number of productions, offering tax credits as high as 30 percent of cost for movies made in the state. Florida, meanwhile once number three with California and New York in attracting movies and TV has almost given up on its film industry, according to critics of Gov. Rick Scott and Republican House Speaker Richard Corcoran, who have stiff-armed incentive spending, calling it corporate welfare. Their austerity has saved taxpayers from forking over incentive money to filmmakers like Georgia does, critics acknowledge. But theyve surrendered hundreds of millions in economic boosts to Florida businesses in the process, a largesse ultimately worth far more coming in than the incentives going out.Florida Weekly takes a look at the numbers and the results of a Sunshine State surrender, as some would describe it the surrender of TV and filmmaker recruitment that could help Florida workers and Florida businesses.How it worksIf filmmakers spend $1 million in Georgia, the state promises $300,000 in tax credits. On top of that, Georgia also offers some sales-tax exemptions: Makers of films, television productions, music videos or commercial advertising, for example, dont have to pay any tax on tangible items they buy for production, or property they lease or buy. So is this just giving away taxpayer money? Put another way: Are Georgia officials so fond of Baby Groot (a little character in Guardians who uses only one word, groot, to communicate with everybody) theyll pay anything? Are they trying to get their friends recruited as set extras so they can meet big stars? The answer is No. Instead, its good business and a great economic move to provide incentives, insists Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. Georgias film industry provides a significant impact on our states economy, employing thousands of Georgians while developing infrastructure and boosting small businesses, he said in a recent release. The film industry has created a home in Georgia, and I am committed to retaining this relationship by constructing a strong, film-ready workforce that will continue to help the industry thrive. The consequences of such thinking are evident on the bottom line: The film industry generated an economic impact of more than $7 billion during fiscal year 2016, including $2.02 billion in direct spending, Georgia officials say the result of 245 feature-film and television productions made in the state. Shooting in Fayetteville, Cartersville and Atlanta, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, just by itself, employed nearly 1,400 local crew and extras, spent more than $4 million at local hotels for room nights, and spent more than $30 million at local FILM FLORIDAFrom page 1 Emerald Coast Kevin Smith Feature (unknown) Captain Phillips ($20,000,000) Jacksonville Three Little Words ($8,000,000) Broward County Travis McGee ($22,000,000) Queen of the South ($25,000,000) Baywatch ($10,000,000)* Palm Beach County Hero ($10,000,000) Hot Tub Time Machine 2 ($5,000,000) The Way, Way Back ($4,600,000) The Gingerbread Girl ($5,000,000) Baywatch ($10,000,000)* St. Augustine Untitled Pirate Series ($20,000,000) Brevard County Hidden Figures ($10,000,000) Astronaut Wives Club ($25,000,000) Cocoa Beach ($16,000,000) Volusia County 42The Story of Jackie Robinson ($20,000,000) Central Florida Terra Nova ($33,000,000) Paper Towns ($10,000,000) 99 Homes ($8,000,000) Sisters ($20,000,000) Tomorrowland ($10,000,000) Panama City The Prince ($12,000,000) Men of Honor ($15,000,000) Hillsborough County Live by Night ($35,000,000) Magic Mike XXL ($14,000,000) The Infiltrator ($18,000,000) Pinellas County Name Withheld Feature ($15,000,000) Not Without Hope ($35,000,000) Gifted ($15,000,000) Sarasota County Christine ($10,000,000) Claws ($10,000,000) Florida Straits ($5,000,000) Lotto ($5,000,000) Sea Around Us ($5,000,000) Alvin & the Chipmunks 4 ($20,000,000) Rock the Kasbah ($12,000,000) The Trap ($10,000,000) Spongebob Squarepants ($25,000,000) Curse of the Fuentes Sisters ($25,000,000) Magic Johnson infomercial ($5,000,000) Miami-Dade County Rosewood S 1-3 ($50,000,000) Arms & the Dudes ($20,000,000) Cocaine Cowboys ($20,000,000) The Godmother ($19,000,000) Bad Boys 3 & 4 ($50,000,000) Magic City Feature ($22,000,000) Million Dollar Arm ($25,000,000) Ride Along 2 ($25,000,000) American Desperados ($30,000,000) Ballers S3 ($26,000,000) Baywatch ($10,000,000)* New Regency Film ($13,000,000) Floridas Film & Television Lost Business $875 million+ in known lost opportunities140,000+ potential lost lodging/hotel room nights$2.3 billion potential positive impact on state GDP* would have shot in multiple counties DEAL SCOTT The film industry has created a home in Georgia, and I am committed to retaining this relationship by constructing a strong, film-ready workforce that will continue to help the industry thrive.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 NEWS A9Georgia companies for catering, makeup, construction supplies, set decorations, car rentals and more, says Emily Murray, a spokeswoman at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. The company also spent more than $75 million in actual production costs in Georgia. Florida, on the other hand, has offered no tax incentives since 2014 (the state still gives a sales tax break to companies that produce film or television here), and has budgeted none for the coming year, says Mr. Lux. Thats a sharp departure from the past, when the state used tax incentives o attract such films as Dolphin Tale and Iron Man 3. Between 2004 and 2016, Florida had various programs to entice film, television and digital media companies and projects to Florida, says Kelly Paige, outgoing president of Film Florida, and owner of Level Talent Group, a Tampa-based booking agency. Her company has booked actors into prominent roles such as Tigris in The Hunger Games Franchise, a Seal Team SIX member for the A&E production, and roles on Bloodline and the current Netflix hit, 3 Reasons Why. Since 2004, for every $1 the state of Florida invested in an incentive program for the film, television and digital media industry, more than $5 was spent in the state by those projects, she says. If someone asked you for $1 but gave you back $5 would you take that deal? The answer, of course, is Yes. Thats why most bigger film companies wont even consider rolling film in a state that offers no incentives, according to those in the business. For about three years since Floridas incentive money ran out, pickings here have been meager, especially because Georgia or Louisiana locations can be made to look like Florida. Currently, like it or not, tax incentives are part of the equation for productions to make choices about where to film, says Maggie McCarty, a member of the Paradise Coast Film Commission in Naples. Not offering them takes Florida out of the competition. The economic benefits are documented and it is also the inclusion of Florida-based products in an overreaching marketing and branding plan that money cant buy. Florida once lit up its local sets thanks to funding. Beginning in 2010, the Florida Entertainment Industry Financial Incentive Program offered $296 million in tax credits over a six-year period (although the money ran out in 2014) attracting both box office biggies and the trickle-down industry to the states sunny shores. During that time Florida hosted such productions as Burn Notice, The Glades, Bloodlines, Graceland, Ballers, Magic Mike, Rock of Ages, Iron Man 3 and Dolphin Tale, to name just a few. The incentive brought millions to Florida in jobs averaging $74,000 a year, according to the states Office of Film and Entertainment, citing figures in an annual report significantly more than the state salary average of $46,000. Between 2010 and 2016, the Department of Economic Opportunity certified 303 productions for tax credits, estimating they spent $1.28 billion in Florida. More than $744 million in wages were associated with those productions, creating about 117, 400 Florida jobs, the report said. But there are additional intangibles that also pay off for the state, proponents of incentives say: the way the nation and overseas Florida-philes view us, for example as not just hot, but also cool. Television has long pictured a lifestyle that moves many to visit the Sunshine State. Miami Vice, which ran for five seasons from 1984 to 1989, epitomized the hot-but-super-cool allure of Florida in general, and Miami in particular. After the show took to the small screen, the citys stature was permanently altered in the eyes of many Americans and international visitors. Miami Vice is why South Beach is South Beach, explains casting director Lori Wyman, who has worked to cast actors in South Florida productions for 30 years. Once upon a time, she recalls, Ocean Drive was filled with rocking chair after rocking chair of elderly folks watching a deserted beach. But when Miami Vice presented hard-bodied men, sexy women and fast, expensive cars and boats against the backdrop of blue water and easy living, things changed. South Beach went from Gods waiting room to Gods playground. Oh, and that was before anyone got any incentives. Perhaps this breathes some life into the argument that it is not the incentives but the appeal. And we have it, whether the bottom-line suggests any truth in that view. Moonlight, after all the achingly beautiful Barry Jenkins story of a young man coming of age in the Liberty City section of Miami was filmed there, without incentives. And it won Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars. But thats the rare coin. Last summer, the HBO series Ballers, starring Florida enthusiast Dwayne The Rock Johnson, suddenly pulled out of Florida and moved to California when the incentives dried up. Mr. Johnson has local ties, but it didnt matter. The loss of Ballers represents about $20 million per season that will be spent elsewhere, leaving an estimated 2,500 Floridians without work, according to statistics cited by the Florida Office of Film and Entertainment. Officials there did not return emails or telephone calls asking for comments. Another show, the popular Netflix series Bloodline, filmed and set in Key West, generated $65 million in new travel spending, 1,738 jobs and $9.4 million in state and local tax revenue in addition to the $30 million in production spending, over a three-year period, according to the Florida Keys & Key West Tourist Development Council. But the producers scrapped the show, a huge loss for the Keys and South Florida economy. Part of the reason may have been the cost of filming in the pricey Keys, with no state incentives, say critics of the Florida austerity. What all this means, in part, is that movies designed to show Florida settings have actually been shot in Georgia, including two 2017 releases, Ben Afflecks Live By Night and Gifted, with Octavia Spencer and Chris Evans. As a result, the state has lost about $650 million in film and TV expenditures since 2013, according to Augustin Corbel, a lawyer and chairman of the Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory from 2010 to 2016. If were looking for diversification we cant just be lighting the exit signs for talent to leave our state, says Mr. Corbel. Im an optimist, its not a lost cause. But Im a realist we have a long struggle to regain preeminence in the top three (with California and New York). Especially with such organizations as the Florida office of Americans for Prosperity, funded by the Kansas-based Koch brothers, resisting incentives. The organization has vigorously lobbied against taxpayer incentives for cinema and television in Florida, as well as other forms of corporate welfare, according to its spokesman, Andres Malave. That strategy has been embraced by such influential legislators as House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a Pasco County Republican. We were, by and large, the only organization in the state arguing against those incentives, and weve been doing it for the last four years, Mr. Malave told Deadline magazine in an October story, How The Power-Broker Koch Brothers Are Killing The Florida Film Business. Although he acknowledges that the film industry is an economic boon, Mr. Malave also argues that taxes should be used only for education, in transportation, health care and things that are essential. We have a great tax climate and taxclimate infrastructure (in Florida). What the rest of the country is doing is eliminating film programs because the return on investment hasnt been there, he argues. Given the lucrative returns cited by officials on incentive programs for film and television in such states as Georgia, California and New York, the claim is untrue. MCCARTY C. KOCH D.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAmericans for Prosperity, however, also insists that its a matter of fairness. It doesnt make sense to give one industry handouts over others, Mr. Malave says. Why shouldnt, say, plumbers get that money? Although Americans for Prosperity has had considerable success lobbying against incentives in North Carolina and Florida, Mr. Malave offers only an oblique answer when asked about his organizations activities in Georgia, which have appeared to be far less energetic. The chickens are going to come home to roost in Georgia, he says. In the Peach State, the Koch Industries company Georgia-Pacific, makers of such paper products as Angel Soft and Quilted Northern toilet paper, has received huge tax incentives, including $7.2 million in property tax breaks last fall in Atlanta where the company is headquartered. Consequently the Americans for Prosperity criticism of incentives makes little sense to Florida indie filmmaker Tim Ritter, who also teaches film at the University of Central Florida. That seems kind of like bunk in general because state and national governments give all kinds of breaks to other sections of corporate America, all the time. It seems like they just dont want to allow certain industries to take those winner spots, he says. Aside from the obvious (economic impact), the cinema is also a major part of our culture and recent history. The entire world looks toward American films to help influence and shape their own ideas of the world we live in. Our cinema makes a huge impact on the day-to-day life of much of the world. Thats pretty amazing cultural capital. Cultural capital that can help Florida, too. When people visit Los Angeles, what are they going to want to see? Mr. Ritter asks. The glamor of Hollywood. Why not cultivate our own slice of cinematic tourism? Ive heard tourism is a pretty big part of Floridas economy. Lori Wyman, seizing on the notion, compares forms of corporate support from the state. If they give $10 million to build a prison system the state gets nothing back, she notes. If you give $10 million to a film you generally get $50 million of spending in the state. Ultimately, leaders wont resist that bottom line appeal, even if they dont like the movies or the art being made. While I am concerned, Ms. Wyman says, I think the film industry will come back. It may not be for years, but it will be back. Neither Ms. Wyman or Mr. Ritter plan to let the lack of state funding curtail their professional trajectories in Florida. I will continue in this state because my filmmaking does exist and always has existed outside of the industry, Mr. Ritter said. Im about as independent as it gets, and my work is done on very small budgets. So I can make my work here on the cheap while teaching, which I love, and make that work. But if I ever wanted to make my living (solely) as a film or video professional again, Id probably be casting a much wider net than just in this state. The lack of funding may not affect him, he adds, but I know several professionals who have either moved out of Florida or left the industry altogether. Other artists struggle but endure, too. John and Madeline Scoular left Hollywood after 17 years and relocated to Naples just before the turn of the decade. They produce, direct and write feature films, documentaries and TV commercials, last year winning an Emmy Award for Paradise Reef. The independent documentary film is now appearing on PBS after screening at the 2017 Fort Myers Film Festival. Whatever the legislature decides to do with tax incentives has no bearing on Scoular Image, says Mr. Scoular. We have to shoot to feed our four children. Weve made three feature films, two of them in Florida without incentives. And we will continue to do what we have to do to keep the lights on. That can mean uncomfortable travel, given the children and the demands. Ive been hired to shoot in New Orleans, at Marthas Vineyard and back in Hollywood, he notes. But our bread and butter is filming in the beautiful state of Florida. Especially where we live there aint a bad shot to be had. Like many others who looked to get some of the money when it was available, Mr. Scoular says the incentives werent meant to attract smaller filmmakers to start with. In my humble opinion the incentives were set up for Hollywood films and TV production to bring their films to Florida, not for local Florida-based production companies. If you build it, he argues, Hollywood will come with such TV shows and films as Glades, and Burn Notice. The way it worked, when it worked, was with limited tax incentives, he says. The big companies got most of the benefits, and everybody else had to get in line. Big Hollywood productions hired locals for the small jobs, Mr. Scoular explains. Creative types are just not going to be hired on a project whose genesis began in another state. Directors and principal actors rarely got hired on those jobs. So who did get hired when the incentives fueled business here? Grips, make-up artists, transportation companies, and extras, he says. It was good for a select few. I think when the incentives ended there was a backlog of productions waiting to utilize the credits. And Hollywood left. No dinner, no movie, no goodbye note! Other artists have remained here as well. Id move to Atlanta in a second if I could, says Flip Minott, a multi-awardwinning cinematographer with extensive credits and film experience in and out of Florida. It is an abomination. We used to be third in the country. The loss of state tax credit incentives has certainly been felt in every area across Florida that serves film, television and other entertainment production, says Jeanne Corcoran, director of Sarasota Countys Film and Entertainment Office. Which is why a few local governments, including hers, are offering their own incentives. Weve seen the budgets for gross spending, by projects, continue to drop. By providing a cash rebate program for production and post production, Sarasota County has helped us keep the volume of productions fairly steady, she says. Graham Winick, the film and event production manager for the city of Miami Beach, is also working on some incentives, helping Film Florida develop a proposal called the Education Retention Bill. The bill would offer as much as a 20 percent reimbursement to films and TV projects generated by graduates of a Florida University. But that incentive comes with a cap. In a nutshell, it offers a modest incentive of up to $500,000 for film, TV or digital media that hires Florida film and digital college alumni in four key roles, Mr. Winick says. (It) encourages alums to come back and hire other alums.The futureMany hope the governor and state legislators will reconsider offering incentives to television and film producers. We have been looking at a number of options over the last year. Our industrys top priority is to collaborate with legislators to find common ground and hopefully find a solution, Kelly Paige says. Solutions arent found by just saying no, solutions are found by working together because we all have the same goal to do whats best for our state. Some, like filmmaker Scoular, point out they have no problem raising taxes on stuff or finding ways to pay. Remember a 50 percent cigarette tax that was supposed to go towards health care? And the lottery is supposed to pay for education? Yet my kids public school has fundraisers all year to cover their financial shortcomings. They do OK with toll roads, bridges, airport and hotel taxes, though. Mr. Scoular has spent a lot of time thinking about the issues. If you can get them to think creatively, the film community might have a shot in getting something new and fresh, where everybody wins. I do, however, find it funny that you have organizations out there asking me to join them and pay them $500 a year so they can lobby Tallahassee so I can get tax credits.

The We Are ONE theme encourages the community to recognize the importance of equal rights for every individual no matter their gender identity, sexual preference, race, ethnicity or religion. Collier County has made great strides in recognizing LGBTQ issues, but there is still a long way to go, said Cori Craciun, Naples Pride president. Naples Pride is long overdue. Mayor Bill Barnett will kickoff the celebration. The Southwest Florida Gay & Lesbian Chorus, SWFL Burlesque Alliance, folk singer Haris Blackwood, the True Blue Motown Band and others will perform. Guest speakers will include Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle Melton. Ms. Wambach is a two-time Olympic gold medalist in soccer, FIFA Womens World Cup champion and six-time winner of the U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year award. Her wife, Ms. Doyle Melton, is a New York Times bestselling author whose memoir, Love Warrior, was also an Oprah Winfrey Book Club pick. More than 40 vendors will sell food, beer and merchandise. Nonprofit organizations serving the LGBTQ community will provide information about their services. The family-friendly event will also have games for children. Main sponsors include Collier Freedom, the Rainbow Pages, Dr. Clint Potter of AIM Advanced Individualized Medicine and John R. Wood Properties. To organize Naples Pride, Collier Freedom, a nonprofit, non-partisan grass roots organization that has planned several marches in recent months, enlisted the help of the Rainbow Pages and others involved in the local LGBTQ community. Together they formed the Naples Pride board and set up the Naples Pride nonprofit organization. Among its goals is to raise money to set up an emergency fund for members of the LBGTQ community in critical need. Collier Freedom has done so much in the last six months to support equal rights, and Im glad they recognized the need for a Pride event and took action, says Michelle Hudson, publisher of the Rainbow Pages. Im honored the group asked us to get involved in this historic event. We need more events that celebrate our differences, highlight social issues, combat discrimination and promote unity. In addition to Ms. Craciun, Ms. Hudson and Dr. Potter, the inaugural Naple sPride planning committee includes David Sleeper, Carol Collins, K.C. Schulberg, Karynn Cavero, Veronica Schell and Phyllis Andrews. We are experiencing a turbulent and arduous time that necessitates more unifying events such as Pride, Dr. Potter, who serves as the president of Naples Pride, says. Now more than ever, we need to show respect and compassion for one another.

In its recently approved budget, the state designated $400,000 in seed money for the campaign. The food bank campaign calls on the community to raise the additional $700,000. A donation of $500 can help feed a senior for one year. The Care & Share program will replace the government-sponsored Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which as of July 1 will no longer be available in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which administers CSFP for the federal government, decided to end the program in the three Southwest Florida counties due to shifts in priorities. Meanwhile, the state is expanding CSFP in Hendry, Glades and other Florida counties. State Sen. Kathleeen Passidomo (R-District 28) championed the funding request for the new Care & Share program during the states budget process, with support from state Reps. Chris Latvala (R-District 67) and Heather Fitzenhagen (R-District 78). We are gearing up the campaign immediately to ensure that no qualified senior goes hungry, says Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. We are confident that our generous community will rally to help us complete the funding for this campaign. The Harry Chapin Food Bank, an affiliate of Feeding America, solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to individuals and families in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties, providing food to about 28,000 people a week. For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2015-16, it distributed 20.6 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $34 million, is the equivalent of 17 million meals for people in need. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is recognized as a four-star organization by Charity Navigator, the national nonprofit watchdog organization. The food bank is also a United Way partner agency.

Cpl. William Pschigoda was recently inducted into the SafariLand Groups SAVES Club. He has worn his SafariLand Armorwear Gold II 4.0 ballistic vest since he first joined the force more than 30 years ago and said he learned that habit from veteran deputies who showed him the ropes. Their words saved my life, and I am forever grateful for what they taught me, he said. Cpl. Pschigoda was working road patrol in East Naples in December 2006 when a reckless driver refused to stop for deputies trying to pull him over, leading them on a chase instead. Cpl. Pschigoda had gotten out of his cruiser to lay down Stop Sticks at the intersection of Tamiami Trail East and Collier Boulevard when the man approached in his vehicle, swerved to miss the Stop Sticks and struck Cpl. Pschigoda while travelling at 80 mph. The force of the crash sent Cpl. Pschigoda flying into the air. He landed on the hood of the fleeing vehicle, which drove an additional 200 feet before falling to the side of the road. Paramedics who were already on scene began administering first aid immediately, reviving Cpl. Pschigoda before he was flown to Lee Memorial Hospital with a laceration on his face and a skull fracture. Doctors would later learn he had a hole in his temple and would face years of recovery. One predicted he would never be able to work in law enforcement again. Cpl. Pschigoda defied expectations, returning to the force just one year and five months later, following extensive rehabilitation to regain even the most basic functions including how to walk and speak clearly. Today, he remains an active member of the agency, working in the East Naples district. And he still wears his vest. COURTESY PHOTOCpl.

A May NPR report based on Las Cruces experience quoted favorable reviews by students, backed by a doctor and a nurse practitioner who pointed to research showing that adequate sleep can boost memory and attention and thus can improve school performance (and therefore must be a great use of federal education dollars).Unclear on the conceptFlorida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam argues that his hands are tied by federal food laws and that fresh, all-natural milk with the cream skimmed off the top cannot be sold in Florida as milk (or skim milk) but must be labeled imitation milk unless the all-natural milk adds (artificial) vitamin A to the product. A family farm in the panhandle (Ocheesee Creamery) decided to challenge the law, and Putnam, who recently announced his candidacy for governor, said he would try to resolve the issue soon.Inexplicable (1) It recently became necessary for Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski to acquire a bigger home in the Los Angeles area because their 33,000 bunnyrelated items (stuffed bunnies, antique bunnies, bunny paintings, bunny dinnerware, etc.) needed more space.

James Pelletier, 46, was arrested in Hollis, Maine, in May after he fired a BB gun point-blank at his two sons, ages 9 and 11 but only, he said, as a rite of passage into maturity (perhaps thinking the experience would help them become as mature as their father). He said if the kids knew how it felt to get shot, perhaps they would not be so quick to fire their own guns. The continuing crisisYou mean Jethro and Abby, too? In contrast to the exciting work of the TV series (near the top of broadcast ratings for the last decade), real agents in the Naval Criminal Investigative Service have labored over computer screens eight to 10 hours a day for two months now employing their facial-recognition software just to scour websites to identify victims of nude-photo postings of military personnel that came to light earlier this year.

A simple word search of uniformed military nude got nearly 80 million hits, according to a May Associated Press dispatch from the Quantico Marine base, where the 20 investigators labor side-by-side.Military allies in odd places(1) In April, three days after ISIS fighters reportedly executed 25 villagers about 50 miles south of Kirkuk, Iraq, the three murderers were themselves killed (and eight more wounded) when a pack of wild boars overran their position and gnawed them into martyrdom. (2) In April, a Russian naval reconnaissance ship sank in the Black Sea off of Turkey (likely op: Syria-related) when it collided with a livestock barge flying the flag of Togo. All aboard the Russian ship were rescued; the muchheavier Togolese vessel suffered barely a scratch. Oops In May, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley apparently mindlessly signed the proclamation designating a special day for the late Tre Hummons (submitted by his grieving father, to honor the sons sacrifice). Tre Hummons was killed in 2015 by a police officer but only after Tre had just shot and killed another Cincinnati police officer. Winneshiek County (Iowa) Engineer Lee Bjerke said he had no idea how the driver of the loaded 18-wheeler had missed the Load Limit 3 Tons sign at the entrance of the small, rickety bridge near Cresco in May, but in seconds, the span was wiped out, and the tractortrailer had become part of the Turkey River. The loaded grain truck weighed more than 30 tons.

Preparation is key to protecting your family, home and pets should a storm threaten Southwest Florida. Here are some important things to know, offered by the North Collier Fire & Rescue District: Hurricane watch versus warning A hurricane watch is issued when a storm has the ability to hit within 48 hours. That changes to a hurricane warning when storm conditions are anticipated within 36 hours. When a warning is issued, always pay close attention to and follow weather updates and emergency instructions. Evacuate when told to go. Do not linger, as it will put you and first responders in danger should you need to be rescued. When power goes out When a storm makes landfall, power if often lost and can stay out indefinitely. Make sure you have a battery-powered radio and a battery smartphone charger. Remember that texting or social media might be the only way to communicate during and after a storm. Supplies to gather Your evacuation and storm recovery supplies should include: Any medications you need 1 gallon of water per person, per day for three days Non-perishable food, pet food and can opener Radio flashlight and batteries Battery-powered cell phone charger First aid kit Wrench to cut off utilities A portable generator for your home Other important things Take these steps well in advance of any approaching storm: Take pictures of your home Trim or remove damaged trees Fill you car with gas After the storm When the storm clears, return home when given the green light by emergency services. Watch out for debris. Never touch a downed power line. Dont walk through floodwaters.

In addition to 22 endowed and special scholarships that were awarded, the Tutor Corps seniors each graduated with up to $16,000 in Guadalupe Center scholarship money earned from tutoring elementary school students every day after school. Nearly half of the graduates received support as children from other Guadalupe Center educational programs. Nine had attended after-school tutoring and summer enrichment programs during elementary school. They, like hundreds of other children who enter Immokalee elementary schools each year not speaking English and lacking the skills necessary to be successful in school, needed the same kind of help they provided years later as Tutor Corps students. Three past Tutor Corps students, all now young professionals working in careers of their choosing, were part of the graduation celebration. Helen Midney, a 2008 Tutor Corps graduate with a double degree in political science and Russian from Bowdoin College, returned to Immokalee to be near her family and take on the role of coordinator of the Tutor Corps program from which she graduated. Ms. Midneys older sister, Elizabeth Martinez, also a Tutor Corps graduate and now a pediatrician and mother with plans to open a practice in Immokalee, was in the audience with her husband and daughter. And filming the event for Telemundo Television was Maria Castro, a 2009 Tutor Corps graduate who went on to earn a degree in communications from Barry University. It is always such a wonderful feeling to see our early childhood education program students return to us in high school with a desire to attend college, Dawn Montecalvo, president of the center, said. They are the very embodiment of the success of our educational programs. Another Tutor Corps graduate, Alex Mateo, was the keynote speaker for the graduation celebr ation. Often through tears, he recounted the night his alcoholic father tried to kill his entire family. Luckily the police arrived in time and Alex, 10 years old at the time, never saw his father again. He will serve decades in prison, and though Alexs family is now safe, life continued to be a struggle. Alex helped his mother by picking tomatoes for $30 a day, grocery shopping alone and babysitting his younger siblings. He also enrolled in programs at the Guadalupe Center. Education breaks the cycle of poverty and renews the soul, he told the audience. And he is well on his way to breaking that cycle. Alex graduated from Immokalee High School and earned an associates degree from Florida Gulf Coast University. He made the Deans List in his first semester at FGCU and became part of the Universitys honors program the next semester. And he still managed to document more than 300 community service hours. Alex concluded his speech with sentiments echoed by most Tutor Corps students. Having the staff of the Guadalupe Center and their mentors behind them, believing in them and gently guiding them toward making their dreams of graduating high school and attending college a reality, keeps them on track and opens windows for them to explore new opportunities and adventures. Tutoring younger students with similar backgrounds allows them to mentor as they had been mentored. And the centers Summer College Experience Program, which allowed Alex to attend Phillips Exeter Academy for a few weeks, immerses students in challenging learning environments where they meet others from around the world. Alex will use his Ametek Foundation Endowed Scholarship to attend the University of Missouri where he plans to study business. Future plans call for law school and possibly a career on Capitol Hill and maybe even a Senate seat. He hopes to have an impact on the world and help others from similar backgrounds. The Guadalupe Center is the second largest recipient of funds from The Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Winter Festival.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtating. Business has boomed, says Mr. DeLuca, who as executive director runs the clinics business side, with about 650 qualifying patients so far. Back in November, more than 71 percent of Florida voters approved Amendment 2 to the states constitution, paving the way for expansion of the use of medical marijuana in the Sunshine State. On June 9, the last day of the special legislative session, the House and Senate approved the bill, which now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature. The legislation allows patients who suffer chronic pain related to 10 qualifying conditions to receive either low-THC cannabis or full-strength medical marijuana. THC is the compound that gives marijuana users a high. Its still not legal to smoke marijuana/ cannabis buds in Florida, even as a medicine. But any licensed physician who has taken the eight-hour course on cannabis required by the Florida Department of Healths Office of Compassionate Use can prescribe or technically, as a matter of legal semantics, recommend marijuana medicines for their patients to ingest, including by vaporizing oil (vaping) and taking the medication orally such as in pill form. The Office of Compassionate Use is in charge of keeping a registry of all doctors and patients who use medical marijuana and making it available to law enforcement, among other duties, such as providing patients with Florida medical marijuana ID cards. So far, more than 800 Florida physicians have taken the course required to recommend marijuana. Like other advocates, Dr. Gordon of the Compassionate Cannabis Clinic in Venice calls marijuana an exit drug that can help patients get off sometimes dangerous opioid pain medications, not a gateway drug to harsher ones, as it has often been portrayed. Nobody is coming to see me to get high, he says. People are coming in to try to get well and feel better. Its not to take more drugs, its to take less drugs. Dr. Dareld Morris, a long-time Fort Myers physician with a family practice and owner of Morris Medical Center, predicts that more physicians will take the states cannabis course after the stigma calms down in the next few years and people start to associate marijuana with medicine instead of with whatever experiences theyve had with it or whatever theyve heard about it in the past. Why would your doctor not want another tool in his toolbox? Dr. Morris says. Thats the simplest way to explain it Its not prescribed for everybody, nor is it going to help everybody. He has ordered marijuana meds for his patients primarily for multiple sclerosis, seizures and cancer.One patients storyDavid C., a 65-year-old West Palm Beach resident and Vietnam War Army veteran who suffers from Parkinsons disease and post-traumatic stress disorder, started using a no-TCH marijuana medicine in March to control his symptoms. David uses a vaporizer pen to inhale marijuanas CBD compound (cannabidiol, which doctors and patients have found can relieve inflammation, pain and other symptoms without getting the user high). He calls the result life changing. It controls his shaking due to Parkinsons, has brought his daily level of pain down from an eight or nine out of 10 to a two or three, and allowed him to cut way back on his pharmaceutical medicine, Carbidopa, he says. I used to take it every two hours to control (shaking). Now I take it when I wake up and thats it.His cannabis medicine also helps with the PTSD that has dogged him since his experiences in battle when he was a teenager, now almost five decades ago. Those things stay with me, you dont lose it, he says. I dont want to say theyre totally gone, but theyre not there as much in the moment.His wife, Eileen, and their children and grandchildren have also noticed a positive change in David since he started using medical marijuana. The whole family has noticed it seems when hes here, hes in the moment, hes with us again, she said. In Florida, getting a marijuana recommendation requires youre your doctor has determined you suffer from one of the qualifying ailments now listed in the state constitution: cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, PTSD, ALS, Crohns disease, Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating medical conditions for which a physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient. Its that last part, giving physicians discretion to decide if a patient has some other condition that marijuana would help, that could open the door for doctors to order the drug for a much broader range of ailments. Depending on the interpretation, that could also mean millions more dollars flowing through a burgeoning industry in the third most populous state in the country. With the drug being relatively safe, Mr. DeLuca of the Compassionate Cannabis Clinic argues, Its very easy to make the case that the benefits outweigh the risk. He points out the well-known fact that marijuana overdoses are virtually unheard of, although it has also been known to be addictive, cause anxiety, short-term memory loss and have other side effects. Gold-standard double blind, peer reviewed research on cannabis has been stymied in the United States because of its federal status as illegal in any form. Even as states like Florida say it can be a medicine, cannabis is considered a Schedule I drug by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration that has no currently accepted medical use. Mr. DeLuca believes that lawmakers ultimately will not keep doctors from ordering the drug for a wider range of conditions because of the money at stake.You tell me how theyre going to stuff the cat back in the bag, he says. Its not going to happen. Theres too much money involved.A growing marketArcview Market Research, often cited for its reports on the cannabis industry, estimates that 1.8 million Floridians use marijuana of some sort on a monthly basis, and that the medical cannabis market will grow to a $1.3 billion market by 2021 if doctors are granted more latitude to recommend the drug and other restrictions are loosened, including granting more licenses to companies to grow, process and sell cannabis meds. Now, only seven companies can do that. As of the end of May, there were close to 15,600 patients in the state registry who have qualified for medical cannabis. The Department of Health projects that number could grow to 1.5 to 2.5 percent of the population, or up to about 250,000 people, under current guidelines. Others predict the numbers could be at least double that depending on factors such as the status of marijuana changing at the federal level, and how much discretion doctors have in interpreting whether the benefits of marijuana would outweigh the potential health risks. Cannabis is a marvelously wonderful drug for treating pain, anxiety, depression, inflammatory diseases, seizure disorders, muscle spasms and life-ending issues, says Dr. Thomas Ashton, a surgeon and owner of Grassroots Holistic Centers in Palm Beach Gardens. He has about 100 patients who use medical cannabis, including veteran David in this story. Just as it has helped David cut back on prescription pills for his Parkinsons and PTSD, Dr. Ashton believes it could help people get off opioid pain medications and addictions, which cause thousands of deaths every year in Florida and elsewhere. My most dependable evidence for this is my own clinical experience with my patients, he says. I treat terminal cancer patients with cannabis preparations according to the laws of the state of Florida. Many of those cancer patients are addicted to opioid medication because theyre in constant pain. With marijuana, those doses of opioidbased medications have been reduced 60 to 70 percent in six to eight months and even eliminated in some cases, he says. One of the complications resulting from marijuana being illegal at the federal level is that insurance doesnt cover any of it. In addition to the cost of the medication, for instance, David paid $250 for an initial doctor visit to qualify and still pays $150 for a required checkup to get refills every 45 days. Each time he gets a delivery of medication, thats another $25. Meanwhile, the number of patients who qualify for various types of medical cannabis continues to grow. I think there are going to be somewhere around 250,000-plus, maybe as many as 1 million people in five years in Florida that will qualify for some of these conditions, says Jos Hidalgo, founder and CEO of Knox Medical, one of the seven companies so far that the state has licensed to grow, process and sell marijuana medicines. Mr. Knox has a nursery where the plants are harvested before the oil that contains different types of drugs such as THC and CBD is extracted. The raw concentrated oil is what gets ultimately put into various medicines that we offer, Mr. Hidalgo says. Because of its federal status, the safety and quality of cannabis medicines is regulated by state rules and not the FDA. But Knox Medical is acting and preparing as if the FDA will regulate it, as Mr. Hidalgo believes it ultimately will. We certainly strive to be a pharmaceutical grade company, he says, adding his projection that Knox could provide medicine for up to 75,000 patients. While many South Florida cities and counties have temporarily banned medical marijuana dispensaries amid uncertainty as to how medical cannabis will be regulated in the state, doctors can still order the drugs and patients can either drive to a dispensary or have them delivered. In South Florida, there are dispensaries in Tampa and Miami. Knox Medical has dispensaries in Gainesville and Orlando with plans to open more in Tallahassee, Lake Worth, Jacksonville and St. Petersburg.

Keeping your gut in check: healthy ways to stay on tract SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in HealthYour digestive system is busy. When you eat something, your food takes a twisty trip that starts with being chewed up and ends with you going to the bathroom. A lot happens in between. The health of your gut plays a key role in your overall health and well-being. You can make choices to help your body stay on tract. Your digestive, or gastrointestinal, tract is a long, muscular tube that runs from your mouth to your anus. Its about 30 feet long and works with other parts of your digestive system to break food and drink down into smaller molecules of nutrients. The blood absorbs these and carries them throughout the body for cells to use for energy, growth and repair. With such a long GI highway, its common to run into bumps in the road. About 60 to 70 million Americans are affected by digestive diseases, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or irritable bowel syndrome. GERD happens when your stomach acid and/or contents come back up into your esophagus (swallowing tube) or throat. This causes uncomfortable symptoms such as heartburn and indigestion. IBS is a group of symptoms that includes pain in the abdomen and changes in bowel habits. People with IBS may have constipation, diarrhea or both. Many more people have other digestive problems, like bloating and stomach pain. There are many factors that can impact gut health, says Dr. Lin Chang, a GI expert at the University of California, Los Angeles. How your bodys built, your family and genetic history, how you manage stress and what you eat can all affect your gut. I see a lot of lifestyle-related GI issues, and there are often no quick fixes for that, she says. In general, people do well when they create a more routine schedule, eat a healthy diet and smaller more frequent meals, add in some exercise and get a good amount of sleep. Chang studies the connection between stress and IBS. Her research group has found that people who have early life stress are more likely to develop IBS. However, this increased risk for IBS went down when people confided in someone they trust about the stress they experienced, she explains. Finding healthy ways to manage stress is important for GI health and your health overall. What you eat can help or hurt your digestive system and influence how you feel. Increasing fiber is really important for constipation, says Dr. Chang. Most Americans do not eat a lot of fiber, so you have to gradually increase the fiber in your diet. Otherwise you might get gas and more bloating and wont stick with (the changes). Dr. Chang says you should eat at least 20-30 grams of fiber a day for constipation. You can spread out your fiber in small amounts throughout the day. Start with small servings and gradually increase them to avoid gas, bloating and discomfort. Try to eat fruits and vegetables at every meal. A variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts can provide a healthy mix of different fibers and nutrients to your diet. An added benefit is that the more fiber and whole foods you eat, the less room youll have for less-healthy options. But some fiber-rich foods, called high FODMAP foods, can be hard to digest. Examples include certain fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and wheat and rye products. If you have IBS, your doctor may recommend a diet low in FODMAPS. Researchers are coming to understand the complex community of bacteria and other microbes that live in the human GI tract. Called gut flora or microbiota, these microbes help with our digestion. But evidence has been growing that gut microbes may influence our health in other ways too. Studies suggest that they may play roles in obesity, type 2 diabetes, IBS and colon cancer. They might also affect how the immune system functions. This can affect how your body fights illness and disease. Recent studies have found that microbes effects on the immune system may impact the development of conditions such as allergy, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. You might have heard that probiotics live microbes that are similar to those found in the human gut can improve your gut health. These are also called friendly or good bacteria. Probiotics are available in dietary supplements and in certain foods, such as yogurt. There is some evidence that probiotics may be helpful in preventing diarrhea associated with antibiotics and improving symptoms of IBS, but more needs to be learned. Researchers still dont know which probiotics are helpful and which arent. They also dont know how much of the probiotics people would have to take or who would most likely benefit from them. Certain food additives, called emulsifiers, are something else that may affect your gut health. Emulsifiers are added to many processed foods to improve texture and extend shelf life, but studies show they can affect our gut flora. Our work and other research indicate that emulsifiers and other food additives can negatively impact the microbiota and promote inflammatory diseases, says Georgia State Universitys Dr. Andrew Gewirtz. His group has been studying the relationships between food additives, gut bacteria and disease in mice. The team also plans to examine how different food additives may affect people. Based on what his team and others have found, Dr. Gewirtz advises, The take home message: Eat a balanced diet and less processed foods. The GI system is complicated and such an important part of our health, Dr. Chang says. It takes a real partnership between patient and doctor to get to the root of issues. Everyone has to find a healthy routine that works for them.

The morning includes breakfast, a healthy cooking demonstration, a purpose workshop and an opportunity to network with other businesses. Blue Zones Project is a communityled initiative designed to make healthy choices easier for everyone in a community through permanent changes to a citys environment, policy and social networks. Established in 2010, Blue Zones Project is inspired by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author who identified five regions of the world or Blue Zones with the highest concentration of people living to 100 years or older. Blue Zones Project incorporates Mr. Buettners findings and works with cities to implement policies and programs that will move a community toward optimal health and well-being. So far, 42 communities, including Naples/Collier County, in nine states have joined Blue Zones Project.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESCanine flu tipsCommon-sense precautions can help keep dogs safeAn eight-state outbreak of canine influenza is causing dog-show exhibitors to keep their dogs home and the American Kennel Club to advise judges that exhibitors should display the dogs teeth themselves. Pet dogs are at risk if they frequent dog parks or other areas where dogs come in contact with each other. The H3N2 strain has been documented in 30 states, including Florida, which reported its first cases earlier this month, and H3N8 has been found in 42 states, plus Washington, D.C. The H3N2 strain primarily affects dogs, but last March, the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory documented that the strain had infected a group of cats in the Midwest and could spread from cat to cat. The disease is not transmissible to humans. While most dogs who encounter the highly contagious virus develop a mild or subclinical case and recover in two to four weeks without serious problems, that doesnt mean the disease is harmless. A small percentage of dogs can develop a severe form that may lead to pneumonia caused by a secondary bacterial infection. They may need antibiotics, fluids or even hospitalization. The fatality rate is less than 10 percent. Dogs in frequent contact with other dogs at parks, boarding or daycare facilities, animal shelters, pet stores, grooming salons, dog shows or other events are at highest risk. Up to 80 percent of dogs exposed to the virus will contract it. The airborne virus is transmitted by contact with infected dogs or contaminated items, such as pet dishes, leashes, crates or kennels. The virus can survive up to 24 hours on soft surfaces, such as bedding, and up to 48 hours on hard surfaces, such as flooring. Persons handling an infected dog and then an uninfected dog without first disinfecting their hands can also spread the disease. Dogs who show clinical signs can be infective for 28 days from the time they are exposed to the virus. Infected dogs without clinical signs a dry, hacking cough; appetite loss; lethargy; runny nose or eyes; and fever can spread canine flu as well. Once dogs are exposed to the virus, they show signs within 24 to 48 hours. If you suspect your dog has canine flu, call your veterinarian for advice. To avoid spreading canine flu, your veterinarian may request that you not bring your dog to the clinic or that you follow specific safety precautions before doing so. A double-dose vaccine is available to protect dogs. The second dose is administered two weeks after the first. The vaccine protects against the H3N2 and H3N8 strains of the canine flu virus. Immunity typically kicks in within one to two weeks of the booster vaccine. To reduce the risk of a dog contracting canine flu or to prevent spreading the disease, experts recommend the following tips: Keep sick dogs separate from healthy dogs for up to 30 days after signs diminish. Wash hands frequently, especially if handling one dog after another. At dog shows, judges should use hand sanitizer after examining each dog. Exhibitors should consider grooming dogs at their cars instead of at grooming areas in proximity to other dogs. Use easily sanitized stainless steel or ceramic dog bowls. Clean bowls, tables, crates and other items with a solution of one part bleach to 30 parts water and let air-dry for at least 10 minutes before use. Bleach breaks down quickly, so make a new solution daily. Use paper towels instead of cloth to wipe down hard surfaces. Canine influenza can spread where dogs gather in large numbers.

Not binge eating, not binge drinking and not binge shopping. Instead, its time for the most glorious binging of all: The Netflix Binge. Sometimes, I wonder if the fine folks at Netflix plan binge season specifically for Southwest Floridians. I mean, so much of the rest of the country is enjoying a long-awaited summer of temperatures in the 70s. Theyre outside riding bikes and swimming in lakes. They have far too many fun outdoor activities to keep them occupied as opposed to sitting in the comfort of the air-conditioned homes, curtains drawn, happily bingeing on Netflix. But around these parts, binge season coincides perfectly with hibernation season. The relentless afternoon thunderstorms and the hot, humid 98-degree days make for the ideal time to put the ceiling fan on high, cozy up on the sofa and binge-watch the days away. The third (and sadly, final) season of Bloodline was released at the end of May and I gobbled up all 10 episodes in about 72 hours. Then, since I was so sad the Florida Keys thriller starring Sissy Spacek as matriarch of the wildly dysfunctional Rayburn family was done and over with, I even bid on some items in an online end-of-show auction. (Thankfully, I didnt win anything. Most of it was clothes, and Im pretty certain Id never have been able to squeeze into a pair of Ms. Spaceks teeny-tiny pedalpushers.) I then set my bingeing sights on the recently released The Keepers, which critics are calling this seasons Making A Murderer. Its a seven-part documentary about the murder of young nun in Baltimore back in 1969. If it were a book, it would be a page-turner. One night I binge-watched it until 3 a.m., even though I suspected it would give me nightmares (it did), but it was so good. My husband loves House of Cards, so when the scheming Frances and Claire Underwood returned with a new season of political depravity, we jumped on board for the binge. Since Todd is not one to stay up until the wee hours, this binge is more like moderate snacking. We usually take in two episodes a night and are down to just two more to go. Which means its a good thing Orange is the New Black has started up again. Just as I finish digesting House of Cards, Ill be able to devour an entire season of the socially conscious comedy/drama set in a womens prison. It should take me about 36 hours. Its not healthy, but its oh, so delicious. So thanks to Netflix, I have an excuse to hibernate from the heat and enjoy a cool, cozy summer in front of the TV. Im already thinking about the next binge. Ive heard Girl Boss is good, as are Master of None and Grace and Frankie. Its going to be a long, cool summer. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

I enjoy the process, and by the time the project has been produced or is out in public, Im already on the next work in-progress and its development, said Ms. Wilson. I take very little time to relish the outcome. Im very focused on the process and development. You wont have a successful outcome if youre not focused on the process. I wish I took more time to appreciate the beauty of what weve produced, but Im very focused on the next challenge. Ms. Wilson is actively involved in strategic planning and creative development for projects at the company she launched in October 2007. Wilson Creative Group devises print, broadcast and digital advertising for clients from a diverse list of industries, including real estate, restaurant, technology, legal and construction. John R. Wood Properties, the Ronto Groups Naples Square development, the Naples law firm Conroy, Conroy and Durant, Diamond Custom Homes and Advanced Air are among the agencys largest local clients.

When we talk about workforce demand in Southwest Florida, its easy to focus on health care because health care is an economic driver in the region, said Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which serves as the backbone organization for the FutureMakers Coalition.

I trace my roots back to 1961, when my namesake joined an egg-producing company that later developed the first plastic egg carton. In 1970, he formed a container company that soon introduced the clamshell container used by fast-food companies. In 1982, he started me a chemical company that today, based in Texas, rakes in about $10 billion annually. My offerings include adhesives, coatings, lubricants, pigments, gypsum, detergents, moth-proofing agents, enzymes, softeners, insulation, resins and much more. My products are in everything from surfboards to footwear to wind turbines. Im merging with the Swiss chemical giant Clariant. Who am I? Think you know the answer?

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. 401(k) Blunders to AvoidFor many of us, 401(k) accounts are vital tools for retirement savings. Maximize their effectiveness by avoiding these mistakes:1. Not contributing enough in order to grab all available employer matching dollars: Its common for employers to match a certain percentage of your contributions thats free money, so dont pass it up.2. Not socking away money aggressively for retirement: The more you invest and the longer those dollars have to grow, the bigger the nest egg youll likely have. Contribution limits for 401(k)s are generous for 2017, theyre $18,000, plus an additional $6,000 for those 50 and up. 3. Leaving a default setting in place: Default settings will generally invest your money conservatively. This is especially ill-advised for young workers, and it can doom you to low returns. Over long periods, stocks are likely to outperform bonds and other safer alternatives. You can do well over time with a low-cost broadmarket index fund, such as one based on the S&P 500 or the total stock market. If your plan doesnt offer one, ask about it. 4. Holding too much of your employers stock: Relying on one company for your current income as well as your future financial well-being is keeping too many eggs in one basket. Even well-respected companies can do poorly. Diversify. 5. Borrowing from your 401(k): Even in an emergency, try to find your needed money elsewhere. Taking dollars out of your 401(k) removes their ability to grow for you possibly for years or forever. 6. Cashing out when you change jobs: Even if you have only, say, $25,000 in your account, if you leave it to grow for the next 20 years and it does so at an annual average rate of 8 percent, it will become $116,500, a useful sum in retirement. You might roll over your 401(k) into an IRA when changing jobs. For most of us, the worst 401(k) mistake to make is to not participate in a 401(k) plan. Learn more at fool.com/ retirement and brightscope.com. Risky BusinessMy dumbest investment was buying into a penny stock. I bought 100 shares for $3.10 each, and I sold them the next day for $1.87 apiece. Today, the stock is worth $0.25 per share. The stock is not one to invest in right now. The company keeps adding more shares all the time. I learned not to invest in companies without current financial statements available and companies with the letter E added to their ticker symbol. My 401(k) is all in individual stocks and junk bonds. M.T.R., onlineThe Fool Responds: Penny stocks ones trading for less than about $5 per share are notoriously volatile and risky. (Junk bonds are risky, too, by the way, which is why they offer higher interest rates to investors.) When you see a stock trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market or the Over-theCounter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) with an E added to its ticker symbol, that means it has been late filing required documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The E is now gone from its ticker, but the stock you bought has been trading near $0.02 per share. The company was once flying high on expectations that it would supply parts to iPhones, but it has posted no profits in recent years. Its share count went from 45 million a decade ago to more than 700 million recently, reflecting much fundraising at the expense of existing shareholders. Stepping on the GasPhillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) is one of the largest independent refining companies in the country. Its non-refining businesses of chemicals, midstream, and marketing and specialties have kept it in the green during the refining sectors recent challenges, and those segments hold the companys most compelling growth prospects.Phillips 66 owns stakes in 11 refineries around the U.S. and two in Europe. Its empire includes a large integrated midstream network, with both crude oil and refined product pipelines and terminals as well as several natural-gas-liquids-related assets. The companys marketing and specialties segment distributes gas and diesel in the U.S. and Europe to more than 8,750 branded outlets, while also controlling the largest aviation fuel network in the country. Additionly, Phillips 66 also manufactures and markets specialty products. Its one of the biggest finished lubricant suppliers in the country, and it shares ownership with Chevron in CPChem, a massive chemicals company and the worlds largest producer of polyethylene. Since going public as a stand-alone company in 2012, Phillips 66 has invested tens of billions of dollars in growth projects in its petrochemicals and midstream segments, repurchased 17 percent of shares outstanding and increased its dividend by 215 percent. Its recent yield near 3.7 percent is attractive, and further dividend growth could deliver bigger returns over time. Take a closer look at it. (The Motley Fool has recommended Chevron.) 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? (Answer: Dole Food Co.) Cash MattersQIs it good to see a lot of cash on a companys balance sheet? N.R., Tacoma, WashingtonANot necessarily. Having gobs of cash does allow a company to act quickly when opportunities arise, but if the money is sitting around for a long time, its not being put to productive use. Many successful companies keep their cash levels low on purpose. They use profits to pay dividends, buy back shares, pay off debts, hire more workers and lots of other things. If they suddenly need more cash, they can borrow it. As an example, ExxonMobil rakes in more than $240 billion in revenue annually, but it recently had just $5 billion in cash (and cash equivalents assets that can be readily turned into cash) on its balance sheet. Amazon.com, meanwhile, recently had $143 billion in annual revenue and about $15 billion in cash and equivalents. Companies manage their cash in different ways. ***QHow should I invest my money if I want it to grow as quickly as possible for a down payment on a house in a few years? H.L., Hickory, North CarolinaAThe stock market is a great place to build long-term wealth, with stocks outperforming bonds and other alternatives over most long-term periods. But the stock market is volatile. Over the short term, it can go up or down, jeopardizing the down payment youve accumulated and plan to withdraw soon. Dont risk money youll need within five years (or even seven or 10, if youre very risk-averse) in stocks. Short-term funds should be kept in a safer place, such as CDs or money market accounts, to protect your principal. You can find good short-term interest rates at bankrate.com.

MESNIK PERRON OQUENDO ON THE MOVE MICHAEL OWEN PHOTOGRAPHYPeggy Wilson and her Labrador retrievers, Maple and Jackson Brown, who often accompany her to the offices of Wilson Creative Group. needs other business services while theyre here, such as legal, financial, retail and restaurants. She began her advertising career in graphic design more than 25 years ago and found that she loved marrying the creative aspect with a strong marketing strategy. I think Im most known for saying that in order to move people and make a difference, you need to look good, and a strong design is what will provoke them to read and learn more about you, she said. The most recent recession and the demise of her then employer left Ms. Wilson pondering her next career step, a quandary that led to the founding of Wilson Creative. With the quality of work that I wanted to produce, I knew that I needed to put myself at the helm and make myself accountable for producing the best work, she said. I dont want to say it was my only choice, but it was certainly the best alternative to do so. The firm began with a staff of two: Ms. Wilson and a support person. They had three clients. Today, Wilson Creatives 10-person staff serves more than 25 clients. The business has progressed and grown through our strong partnerships and the relationships that we have with our clients, she said. They entrust us so much with really all facets of their marketing communication needs, even managing their budgets and making smart decisions on how they spend their money. Over the years, Wilson Creative Group has been recognized within the industry, including receiving 12 Sand Dollar Awards in 2016, among them a Marketing Director of the Year award for Ms. Wilson. Presented by the Collier Building Industry Association, the Sand Dollar Awards recognize excellence in new home sales and marketing within the county. Wilson Creative is observing its first decade of existence throughout 2017. The celebrating includes a party held recently for clients, vendors, colleagues and friends at the firms new digs in the Shoppes at Vanderbilt. The office is twice as spacious as the business previous location. It certainly provides us room to grow into the future and to set ourselves up for another 10 years, Ms. Wilson said. The West Palm Beach native moved to Naples 25 years ago with her husband, Bill Wilson, who is from Collier County and also works in marketing. The couple has been married for 23 years. They have two children, Sadie, 18, wholl be a freshman at the College of Charleston this fall, and Lily, 17, who will be senior at Barron Collier High School. When asked what from her past sustains her in her life and work, Ms. Wilson was quick to respond. My dad (the late Jules Schultetus), every day, she said. He was an independent businessman for over 30 years and committed to his work and his family, and also to doing the right thing. So every day I think, What would my dad do? For more information about Wilson Creative Group, call 597-9480 or visit www.wcgpros.com. Interview with Peggy WilsonBusiness mentor: My dad. He was honest in every decision he ever made, even if it meant a loss to his business. First job: A graphic artist at a local studio. I created the first digital site plan of Bay Colony, back in 1992. Business words of wisdom: Do the right thing. Every time. Most recent business book read: The It Factor by Mark Wiskup. Two things you look for when hiring: One: a desire to do great work and make it perfect. And two: dedication to the work and putting in the time to make it happen. Our social media suggests we have it easy Theres nothing easy about working at an ad agency. Its hard work and total dedication. You have to have the right kind of personality for this industry and the right kind of attitude to work at Wilson. Job openings: Would consider another account manager and a graphic designer. Last time you had to fire someone: I didnt. I simply shared with them a job opening available elsewhere and they bit. When one is controlled by negativity, theres nothing you can do to change that.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBusiness people are saying they need business people. They need employees with business management, supervision, accounting, administrative and web and computer skills. More than 100 employers responded to the survey, which combined with other FutureMakers data and the 2015 Workforce Now report, provides a first-of-itskind comprehensive look at current and future workforce needs and gaps. The FutureMakers Coalition was created to address workforce challenges in the region and improve the skills and demand for local employees by increasing the number of residents with college degrees, industry-specific certifications and other high-quality credentials. Ms. LeSage said the research provides the coalition with a directive in its ongoing conversations with area high schools, businesses, post-secondary programs and people working with students, the under-employed and the unemployed to guide them to well-paying careers in Southwest Florida. It will also shape the programs that colleges, universities and technical colleges need to offer to ensure students have access to programs that make them work-ready. Building the workforce locally is more effective and efficient, she said. Now and looking to the future, we have to guide students to pick career paths with full knowledge of the jobs available in Southwest Florida. Everyone wonders why people leave here, and we now have information to show that theyre likely training for and studying for jobs that dont exist here. The coalitions findings mirror a recent report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which noted two-thirds of employers are seeking graduates with business, accounting, engineering and computer science degrees. Fewer than half of the class of 2015 possessed those skills. Many local companies are willing to train certificateand degree-holders, and theyre in growth mode, expecting to hire additional workers in the coming years. The needs at Stokes Marine in Fort Myers cover the gamut from business skills to specialized trades, said owner Brent Stokes. The company recently conducted interviews for a variety of openings, and Mr. Stokes expects to hire another five employees when the companys new headquarters is completed. Nearly half of the companies responding to the survey offer incentives for new hires from education support and cash bonuses to housing costs and the opportunity to work from home. Stokes Marine provides cash incentives and will pay more for hires with accounting skills as well as those experienced in carpentry, drafting and welding.Business skills in demandThe talent and post-secondary education requirements sought by Southwest Florida businesses cover the spectrum. Companies want candidates with business (30 percent), accounting (30 percent) and administrative office (20.5 percent) skills, whether theyve earned associate, bachelors or masters degrees. Tech-related fields, among the top four to seven in-demand skills, include web and net application development and programming, cloud computing and virtualization and cybersecurity. The business survey is saying that technical certification in business administration and accounting is nearly as valuable as an associate or bachelors degree, said Cindy Banyai, the community foundations evaluation and research consultant who analyzed the survey data. The results, she said, also correlate with other findings demonstrating the increased role technical colleges will play in creating workforce-ready graduates who can earn industry-specific training and certification in one to two years. Technical school provides a low-cost option to a career ladder, Ms. Banyai said. Employers are telling us they will hire based on a certification. An employee learns a skill without a lot of cost and can later move on to an associate or bachelors degree. Im a huge proponent of education, but if everyone gets college degrees, we have no one to fix the plumbing, no one skilled to repair air conditioners, tint windows or learn printing, said Kimberly Hansen, a human resources consultant and founder of KHR Solutions in Cape Coral who helps local businesses find qualified candidates. These arent the types of jobs high schoolers are thinking of. The trades are particularly in demand for Stokes Marine, which constructs seawalls, boatlifts and docks. The trades are really depleted right now, Mr. Stokes said. Its difficult to find an installer with a carpentry background or equipment operators. Its easier finding sales and accounting managers. We need all skill sets. Ms. Banyai describes the current workforce as hollow in the middle. Businesspeople are saying they need mid-level managers, receptionists, office managers and employees with basic customer service skills, and they cant fill these positions. These big-picture needs only partially align with the K-12 focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) or the present-day push to health care careers. That National Association of Colleges and Employers study showed just a 1.8 percent need nationally for health science graduates while 11.4 percent of the 2015 graduating class received health care-related degrees. High school students who attended the FutureMakers Coalitions inaugural regional student summit last year questioned the real-life applications of STEM in the workplace. We cannot put all of our eggs in one basket if the goal is a sustainable economy in Southwest Florida, Ms. LeSage said. We have to check in with local businesses regularly to understand their changing needs and feed that information to the education system and the workforce. When no one signs up for a business program at a technical college, the program gets dropped. Right now were educating our young people for jobs that dont necessarily exist in the community, so theyre leaving. The flipside of that is in-demand jobs dont get filled, creating a gap that becomes costly for businesses to fill.More specialized programs neededMany local businesses said they are willing to work with new hires who have the essential skills. From there, theyll fine-tune an employees talent through in-house training, tuition reimbursement, mentoring, flex time to attend classes and by awarding scholarships. Advancing an employees skills and guiding them on a career path is especially difficult in remote regions of Southwest Florida, particularly Hendry and Glades counties. Local certification and degree programs simply arent available. Clewiston-based First Bank uses a national workplace skills test to determine if potential applicants are a good fit. Employees need only a high school diploma or GED; the bank will help them receive industry-specific certification and provide training and opportunities for advancement, said Mali Gardner, vice president of training and development. Its always helpful if they have certifications or college, but we grow our own, she said. They can start as a teller and be promoted to customer service, the loan department and management positions. We have one employee with a teaching degree who decided she just didnt want to be a teacher. Although First Bank employees complete mandatory compliance courses online, Ms. Gardner laments the lack of a local post-secondary program for those on the management track. Having a branch management training program offered right here in town would be helpful, she said. Its a specialized skill and really does require inperson instruction. It would be beneficial for a local college to offer this. The closest college is 31 miles away at Florida SouthWesterns LaBelle campus, already a major round trip for an employee base thats mostly working mothers with child care constraints. The widening of SR 80 will further complicate the commute for 1,100 days, Ms. Gardner noted. Weve considered the Dale Carnegie program, but its too expensive, she said. We could easily send four to five employees to monthly training for certification. I imagine other employers in the area would likely send employees for supervisory training. Finding management courses is the hardest area for us. First Bank employs 98 people and is looking at Immokalee for a seventh possible location. Ms. Banyai said college graduates often dont realize how their degrees translate into the real world. Like the teacher working at First Bank, a bachelors candidate can find employment in the business sector even if he or she didnt major in business. They can use their education to stay in Southwest Florida and get business and management skills they can later take to another company or use as entrepreneurs and start their own business, she said.Connecting the key playersPerhaps the most important findings of the FutureMakers business survey points to the need for more communications between schools, businesses and post-secondary institutions to fill the workforce gap. Creating a thriving workforce pipeline means we need stronger partnerships with universities, colleges and tech colleges, Ms. LeSage said. We need to reach students as early as middle school so they can envision the path they need to take to get a well-paying job in Southwest Florida. Traditional and nontraditional students need to know the steps they can take to an attainable career. We also need to get businesses more involved in recruiting from local schools and defining post-secondary programs that will help them fill key positions. Businesses could benefit by looking at the programs offered by Naples-based Arthrex, among the larger employers in Southwest Florida. The company recruits extensively from local colleges and offers internships and job shadowing that let students test the career waters. The orthopedic medical device manufacturer is also looking into developing a co-op program with Florida Gulf Coast University. It reaches out to Collier County students as early as third grade and works with local technical colleges to design programs to graduate students with specialized skills to operate and maintain its equipment. The company also offers externships for teachers and meets with students in the districts math and entrepreneurial academies to discuss its needs. Arthrexs extensive involvement in local schools is designed to showcase its available career paths and well-paying jobs right here at home. FGCU and Hodges have gotten better at exposing students to our needs, said Mike Boose, the companys human resources director. All three technical schools have been very good in customizing programs to the skills the business community says it needs. Manufacturing jobs are growing rapidly in Southwest Florida. We need additional vocational training and to expand existing programs. Aysegul Timur, the dean of the Johnson School of Business at Hodges University and one of the coauthors of the 2015 Workforce Now report, is constantly assessing the needs local businesses discuss during meetings of the FutureMakers Coalition, the Horizon Council and other groups. The workforce report, which was released in May 2016, also identified supervisory positions in retail, construction and food preparation among the top 10 local gaps in the workforce. Maintenance and repair trades were also noted as difficult to find qualified candidates. I was really surprised employers are looking for people with a general business education, Mr. Timur said. These conversations really opened my eyes to the important role technical colleges serve. Theyre doing an amazing job. I also realized we need to connect individuals to short-term certification programs that would prepare them for a supervisory role. They may have technical knowledge and skills but dont know how to manage a team. Mr. Timur is currently developing a two-year certification program to prepare individuals for supervisory positions, provide administrative skills and the confidence to enter the workforce and over time enroll in a college degree program for advanced, higher paying positions. Creating that important alliance between businesses and schools is already underway in Charlotte County. Ms. Hanson, president of the countys Society for Human Resource Management chapter, is arranging meetings with business leaders to outline the skills they see lacking in the current workforce. Shell present those findings to high schools. High school students need to see there are more options than just leaving the area or going to college, Ms. Hanson said. We have the opportunity to send students in multiple directions and to be successful if they put forward an effort. GAPFrom page 1Were finding there are other employment demands that may be overlooked by the potential workforce and education system training that workforce. Business people are saying they need business people. Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community FoundationSTOKES HANSEN BOOSE

Study shows five causes for low rate of ownership NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSDespite steadily improving local job markets and historically low mortgage rates, the U.S. homeownership rate is stuck near a 50-year low because of a perverse mix of affordability challenges, student loan debt, tight credit conditions and housing supply shortages. Thats according to findings of a new white paper titled, Hurdles to Homeownership: Understanding the Barriers released last week in recognition of National Homeownership Month at the National Association of Realtors Sustainable Homeownership Conference at the University of California, Berkeley. Led by a group of experts, including NAR 2017 President William E. Brown, NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun and Berkeley Hass Real Estate Group Chair Ken Rosen, the conference addressed the dip and idleness in the homeownership rate, its drag on the economy and what can be done to ensure more creditworthy households have the opportunity to buy a home. The decline and stagnation in the homeownership rate is a trend thats pointing in the wrong direction, and must be reversed given the many benefits of homeownership to individuals, communities and the nations economy, said Mr. Brown, a Realtor from Alamo, Calif. Those who are financially capable and willing to assume the responsibilities of owning a home should have the opportunity to pursue that dream. One of Mr. Browns main objectives as president of NAR is identifying ways to boost the homeownership rate in a safe and responsible way. The research was commissioned by NAR, prepared by Rosen Consulting Group and jointly released by the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at the University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business. It identifies five main barriers that have prevented a significant number of households from purchasing a home.

Post-foreclosure stress disorder There are long-lasting psychological changes in financial decision-making for the 9 million homeowners who experienced foreclosure, the 8.7 million people who lost their jobs and some young adults who witnessed the hardships of their family and friends. While most Americans still have positive feelings about homeownership, targeted programs and workshops about financial literacy and mortgage debt could help return-buyers and those who may have negative biases about owning. 2. Mortgage availability Credit standards have not normalized following the Great Recession. Borrowers with good-to-excellent credit scores are not getting approved at the rate they were in 2003, prior to the period of excessively lax lending standards. Safely restoring lending requirements to accessible standards is key to helping creditworthy households purchase homes.3. The growing burden of student loan debt Young households are repaying an increasing level of student loan debt that makes it extremely difficult to save for a down payment, qualify for a mortgage and afford a mortgage payment, especially in areas with high rents and home prices. As NAR found in a survey released last year, student loan debt is delaying purchases from Millennials and more than half expect to be delayed by at least five years. Policy changes need to be enacted that address soaring tuition costs and make repayment less burdensome.4. Single-family housing affordability Lack of inventory, higher rents and home prices, difficulty saving for a down payment and investors weighing on supply levels by scooping up single-family homes have all lead to many markets experiencing decaying affordability conditions. Unless these challenges subside, RCG forecasts that affordability will fall by an average of nearly 9 percentage points across all 75 major markets between 2016 and 2019, with approximately 5 million fewer households able to afford the local median-priced home by 2019. Declining affordability needs to be addressed with policies enacted that ensure creditworthy young households and minority groups have the opportunity to own a home. 5. Single-family housing supply shortages Single-family home construction plummeted after the recession and is still failing to keep up with demand as cities see increased migration and population as the result of faster job growth, according to Mr. Rosen. The insufficient level of homebuilding has created a cumulative deficit of nearly 3.7 million new homes over the last eight years, he added. Fewer property lots at higher prices, difficulty finding skilled labor and higher construction costs are among the reasons cited by RCG for why housing starts are not ramping up to meet the growing demand for new supply. A concentrated effort to combat these obstacles is needed to increase building, alleviate supply shortages and preserve affordability for prospective buyers. Low mortgage rates and a healthy job market for college-educated adults should have translated to more home sales and upward movement in the homeownership rate in recent years, said Mr. Yun. Sadly, this has not been the case. Obtaining a mortgage has been tough for those with good credit, savings for a down payment are instead going toward steeper rents and student loans, and first-time buyers are finding that listings in their price range are severely inadequate. A healthy housing market is critical to the overall success of the U.S. economy, Mr. Rosen added. Too many would-be buyers have been locked out of the market by the factors found in this study, and its also one of the biggest reasons why economic growth has been subpar in the current recovery. Hurdles to Homeownership: Understanding the Barriers is the second of three papers scheduled for release in 2017 by RCG. Among the findings of the first white paper, Homeownership in Crisis: Where Are We Now?, released earlier this year, RCG estimated that more than $300 billion would have been added to the economy in 2016, representing a 1.8 percent bump to GDP, if homebuilding returned to a more normalized level consistent with the historical trend. The third paper, to be published later this year, will highlight a series of creative policy ideas to promote safe, affordable and sustainable homeownership opportunities.

Fluent in Spanish! 1-800-591-DERM | RiverchaseDermatology.com GREATER NAPLES FLORIDA WRITERSTeacher turned sleuth stirs up suspects in feel-good murder mystery Murder is Chartered by Diane Weiner. Cozy Cat Press. 180 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; E-book, $2.99. Coral Springs writer Diane Weiner has at least one thing in common with her protagonist in the Susan Wiles Schoolhouse Mystery series: They are both veteran public school teachers who keep busy. Susan, now retired, keeps occupied by volunteering in a new charter school. She also has a nose for mysteries, much to the chagrin of her daughter Lynette, who is a bona fide police detective. Driving home after a long stint at the Westbrook Charter Schools open house, Susan slams into a womans body, snaps to full wakefulness and calls Lynette. Ms. Weiner, who teaches at Millennium Middle School in Tamarac, keeps extra busy by writing novels about Susan. This is No. 8. Susan thinks she is guilty of vehicular homicide, but it turns out that the deceased was strangled to death and then dropped off a bridge onto the road below where Susan struck her. The victim is a neighbor, Melissa Chadwick. So the how has been determined, but the why and the identity of the murderer are mysteries that Susan will not be able to leave alone. The fall-winter holiday season is moving into rural New York, but the town of Westbrook is not yet ready to be jolly. The author uses settings involving holiday preparation on both the family and community level to introduce a surprisingly large cast of characters (given the brevity of the novel) and to establish a normal atmosphere of goodwill against which this exceptional crime looms large. Visiting relatives, desired and not, complicate the lives of Susan and her husband, Mike. The town has been unsettled of late in other ways. There are suspicions about the business practices of Agrowmex, an important company headed by the murder victims husband, Matthew, who has pushed into Westbrook in a big way. In spite of his wifes rather shaky credentials, he managed to get her appointed as assistant principal in the charter school (which he largely funds). And hes bringing in outsider employees to work the Agrowmex farming plant. These workers, to some minds, are not the right kind of residents for their town. Perhaps there was a plan to teach the Chadwick couple a lesson, but it went too far. It goes even further when Matthew is also murdered. There had been other troubles at Agrowmex, most notably the signs that cattle had been illegally slaughtered on the property. While Susan can offer up several suspects on the basis of motive, each ends up having an alibi that is reasonably airtight. Of course, by pushing herself into the investigation, Susan makes herself a potential target and she even receives a threat. The charm of this novel, the elements that put it in the cozy mystery category, include portraits of Lynette as a young mother in a strong marital relationship raising two beautiful children, and the way in which Susan dotes on her grandchildren (just as she does on her daughter and son). She also has a growing and glowing relationship with her birth father, a man she has only recently come to know. Susans birth mother is another story. Audra has hooked up with an ex-con who is returning to a life of crime and abusing Audra, who cant bring herself to deal with the situation or even admit to it. The authors portrait of Audras painful life of victimhood and denial is particularly moving. Her criminal husband is a threat to the community in which he intends to settle. Another blight on the community of Westbrook is the growth of illegal narcotics use and distribution. Addiction could be behind the murders. Ms. Weiners scenes that take place at the school and particularly in the classroom are, as we might expect from a writer who is also a teacher, authoritative and engaging. Yet the new charter school is oddly at the center of the towns troubles. Westbrook Charter focuses this dangerous tension between being an incubator of good citizenship and also all the elements that threaten it: self-interest, prejudice, naivety and deceit. Ms. Weiner does a fine job of keeping up the suspense, building her key characters and orchestrating the revelation of crucial information. She conveys the utopian and dystopian faces of small town America with passion and skill, while keeping the novel entertaining and ultimately upbeat.

The eldest son, Anibal Cruz III, is a classically trained pianist who studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he has a strong presence in the Latin music scene. He has his own band rooted in classical music and Afro-Cuban jazz and is also the leader of the Latin jazz band Clave and Blues. Younger brother Alex Cruz is a wellknown drummer who has performed internationally. The song leader of this musical clan, Anibal Cruz was trained as a physician and worked for 14 years as a gynecologist in Cuba. He and his wife, Enely, also a medical doctor, each made the equivalent of $19 U.S. dollars a month. They could not afford a refrigerator or a television set. Although Mr. Cruz preferred to be a doctor, the economic situation in Cuba forced him to start singing for money. He had grown up in a musical family so, turning to singing made financial sense. He landed a job singing in a Cuban tourist resort making $300 a month in tips. This led him to a long-term contract at a hotel in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Over the next seven years, he was able to bring his family to Mexico, including his parents. The entire family eventually immigrated to America. We came here looking for a better future, especially for my children, my future grandchildren, Mr. Cruz says. He and his wife now reside in Miami.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYof light in its purist form, says Jack OBrien, curator at the Naples Art Association. The winner of the associations seventh annual Camera USA national photography competition will be announced during the opening reception Friday evening, June 16, at NAA headquarters in downtown Naples. All 76 entries will remain on display through Aug. 4. Of those images, 27 are by Florida photographers, including several who live in Southwest Florida (eight from Naples, two from Bonita Springs and one each from North Fort Myers, Estero, Marco Island and Port Charlotte). New Orleans photographer Les Schmidt named his entry after his Blackberry Storm smartphone. Storm 64 shows thin vertical strips of vivid, almost vibrating color. The colors, Mr. OBrien says, were due to an unexplainable computer glitch that produced a surprisingly delightful result. As Mr. Schmidt was trying to take photographs with his phone, Mr. OBrien explains, he kept getting a message that something was corrupt in the phones operating system. He took several photos and downloaded them. He saw they were frenetic, vibrant images, and they showed no degradation when enlarged. Isnt that cool? He blew them up, and they didnt pixilate. Mr. OBrien praises Mr. Schmidt, who also had a photograph chosen for last years Camera USA exhibition, for going with the situation and appreciating it for the art it is, rather than throwing the phone across the room. Other Camera USA 2017 photographers approach the subject of light in their unique ways. For example, Natalia Nova projected a photograph with texture on her body and then took a selfportrait, so its an image of a manipulated and transformed photograph. And Linda Gall captured a wonderful flash of lightning, all the way from the sky to the Gulf of Mexico, Mr. OBrien says. Naples artist Lynda Brauns Track of My Dreams also works with light. Shes done these light streams, just pure light thats making up this photograph, like light off of a reflected surface, Mr. OBrien says. Shes a formalist, looking at the formal elements of art. A minimalist, dealing with basic shape, purely dealing with light. As Ms. Braun wrote in her artists statement: It is important to me that the art I create be in the service of something greater than myself. It is at once a refuge, and a reminder of such simple pleasures as mediating on the light dancing on water (which) serves as a metaphor for a sense of inner luminosity. Another theme Mr. OBrien noted in this years competition has to do with travel. Lynne Turner, a Los Angeles artist, takes photographs when shes stuck in traffic. With her foot on the brake and her car not moving, she can look around, and notices people waiting for the bus or sitting on a bench, waiting, Mr. OBrien explains. Its street photography, but taken from within a car. Ms. Turners Camera USA 2017 entry is titled Your Ad Here. Theres usually an ad on the bus bench, so this person is in an urban environment and also in an environment with the culture of consumption, Mr. OBrien says. Carl Glassman of New York does the opposite. He shoots photographs of people in cars while he is on the sidewalk. He addresses the ambiguous territory of public and private space, Mr. OBrien says. We feel its private, but of course, were on public view. As Mr. Glassman explains in his artists statement about Drivers Seat #5: The tinted darkness of a car interior renders us, driver and passenger, as faceless, anonymous individuals in what seemingly is a domain of our own, yet hardly is private. We look out but, whether by politeness or plain disinterest, we rarely gaze in. I embrace that gaze for what it can reveal. More than 200 photographers from 36 states entered the Camera USA 2017 competition. Its a wonderful sampling of whats happening about the country, Mr. OBrien says about the exhibition. More than a few photographers entered photos of demonstrations; two are in the exhibit, both by Naples photographers. One is an image of veterans, while the other was taken at the Womens March in Naples, which happened in Cambier Park next door to the art association. There are quite a lot of landscapes, and theres some staged photography, Mr. OBrien says. Theres one thats all digital pieces put together that has to do with space and time; Im looking forward to being able to stand in front of it to look at it. Three jurors judged the competition this year: David Houston, Gary Monroe and Robin ODell. Ms. ODell and Mr. Monroe will be in attendance opening night. Mr. Houston is director of the Bo Bartlett Center, College of the Arts, Columbus State University. His curatorial work includes more than 25 photography exhibits, including one-person shows by Elliot Erwitt, Sally Mann, Robert Polidori and Walker Evans. Mr. Monroe has been professor at the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach since 1987. He is a documentary photographer with a long-time interest in outsider and vernacular art. Ms. ODell, curator of the Photographic Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, has assisted with more than 50 exhibitions and curated five, including Changing Identities: The Len Prince Photographs of Jessie Mann and Harold Edgerton: What the Eye Cant See. The popularity of Camera USA reflects the universal appeal of photography, says Mr. OBrien. It came to appreciation in the contemporary period, he says. In the current generation, weve come to embrace photography. Hand-held devices, phones and tablets have given everybody an immediate access to photography and the joy of taking and sharing photographs. And its without the expense of film, he adds. Its opening people up to good photography and the difference between something thats done haphazardly and something that a photographer has an intention behind Theres a thirst for wanting to know more and wanting to see more of what others do. People want to see photography that has gone through a jury, the work of people who are exceptional.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5Actors bring new twist to Baby Jane SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIn 1917, Baby Jane is a self-centered, blonde, blue-eyed child star. Her sister, Blanche, isnt anything. Within a few years, however, Blanche becomes a bona fide film actress. Known as the Queen of the Hollywood melodrama, she outshines her sister in every way. As her career skyrockets, Vaudeville fizzles out and Jane is left behind. But after a freak car accident leaves Blanche paralyzed from the waist down, both sisters find themselves forgotten by their adoring fans and fellow actors. They 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, of course, is the plot of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? What youll see at Lab Theater is not a simple revival of the classic psychological thriller, however. Its Dale Guzmans parody of the 1962 film that starred Bette Davis as Jane and Joan Crawford as Blanche. And two men have the leading roles: Naples resident Randall Kenneth Jones is Jane and Rob Green is Blanche. The cast also includes Patrick Erhardt as Mrs. Bates, Jack Weld as Edwin Flagg, Kayleigh OConnell as Elvira and Yancy de la Roz as Little Jane. Rounding out the players are Steven Coe, Cindi Heimberg, Patrick Rogers, Eren Sisk and Holly Hagan. 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. Jack Weld as Edwin Flagg, the pianist hired to relaunch Janes career, and Randall Kenneth Jones as the title character. From Baby Jane parody to satellite radioNaples resident Randall Kenneth Jones, who stars as Jane in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror, takes the seat opposite Hoda Kotb as a guest on The Hoda Show on SiriusXMs TODAY Show Radio (Channel 108) broadcast live from New York City at 1 p.m. Monday, June 19. The interview replays at 5 p.m. the same day. Mr. Jones has been invited to discuss his book, Show Me. From 2012 to 2016, Mr. Jones interviewed more than 100 celebrities, business leaders, humanitarians and others as a guest columnist for the Naples Daily News. His primary goal: to look for the best in people. Show Me is his compilation of those interviews and experiences, including one with Ms. Kotb on NBCs Today show. Everyone featured in Show Me is a fullor part-time resident of Southwest Florida, or has a connection to the region. Among them are: Erin Brockovich, Janet Evanovich, Bob Orr, Emily Post, Pat Benatar, Brian Boitano, Barbara Corcoran, Shirley Jones, Sonny Jurgensen, Sue Monk Kidd, Suze Orman, Willard Scott and Vanessa Williams.

The musical comedy is filled with powerful gospel music, loveable characters, outrageous dancing and a storyline that will have audiences singing along well into the fall. The TNP production is directed and choreographed by Dawn Lebrecht-Fornara and accompanied by a full orchestra led by Charles Fornara. This shows hymnal by Tonyand eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. TNP Artistic Director Bryce Alexander describes the show as a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship. In this time of political conflict, this story of acceptance and devotion is not only a fitting community conversation, but also an uplifting escape into the music and emotions defined a generation, he adds. Heres how it unfolds: When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopie Goldberg in the hit movie) witnesses a murder, shes put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she wont be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Putting her disco moves and singing to work to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but in doing so, she blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Jasmine Vizena stars as the larger-thanlife Deloris, and songstress Debi Guthery is the haughty, well-spoken Mother Superior. Erica Sample plays timid Sister Mary Robert, who eventually finds her voice; Gina Bucci is the excitable Sister Mary Patrick; and Bret Poulter is the chilled-out gangster Curtis.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYReflections on Sgt. Pepper at 50It was 50 years ago this month when we first heard It was 20 years ago today/ Sgt. Pepper taught his band to play. Its difficult to believe, but the Beatles iconic Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band was first released in June 1967. I was just a little kid in elementary school, but one of my older brothers bought the album. And so I got to hear it, over and over again, in all its complete glory. It was magical. Psychedelic. Different. Epic. It was the Beatles experimenting, turning rock n roll inside out and upside down again. We examined the album, note-by-note, sound-by-sound, lyric-by-lyric, trying to decipher its mysterious clues. There they were, the Fab Four John, Paul, George and Ringo familiar faces, but dressed in these glow-in-the-dark neon-colored uniforms. The strange front cover with that crowd of people; the red back cover that gave us not only all the lyrics, but Pauls back. And the crazy sounds! The way songs seemed to blend into the next. The opening of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds sounded as if it were recorded inside of a melting music box. Farm animal noises on Good Morning, Good Morning. Georges mystical sitar on Within You Without You. That mind-blowing extended note at the end of A Day in the Life. All these unexpected sounds. It sounded circus-y. It sounded oldfashioned and yet like nothing else wed ever heard before. Everyone, parents and grandparents included, sang When Im 64, yet the BBC banned A Day in the Life because of the line Id love to turn you on, claiming it encouraged drug usage. The summer before, the Beach Boys had released Pet Sounds with its sweet, melancholic songs and complex, unusual sounds: a bicycle bell, barking dogs, a locomotive whistle. Pet Sounds was the Beach Boys response to The Beatles Rubber Soul. Sgt. Pepper was the Beatles response to Pet Sounds. The bands kept trying to top each other, encouraging each other to greater musical heights in friendly competition. Sgt. Pepper is the No. 1 album in Rolling Stones list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The magazine called it the most important rock & roll album ever made, an unsurpassed adventure in concept, sound, songwriting, cover art and studio technology by the greatest rock & roll group of all time. It was on the charts then, and its back on the Billboard Top 200 charts now, at No. 3, with a reissued, re-mastered edition. (The 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition four-CD boxed set of the landmark album will set you back $117.99 plus tax.) In recognition of the albums 50th anniversary, www.rollingstone.com ran a series of articles about it. (It also has a reproduction of the Victorian circus poster from which John Lennon created the lyrics almost verbatim for the song Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!) NPRs All Things Considered talked about the albums anniversary. PBS aired a documentary, Sgt. Peppers Musical Revolution. Papers from the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times ran stories about it. Even Forbes magazine had a story about it. And while there are countless books about the Beatles, three new ones have recently been released about Sgt. Pepper. In May, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band: The Album, the Beatles, and the World in 1967 ($30, Imagine) by Brian Southall was released. And also in May, Beatles expert Bruce Spizer, author of eight previous books about the band, released the ninth: The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper: A Fans Perspective ($29.98, 498 Productions LLC). And this month, Sgt. Pepper at Fifty: The Mood, the Look, the Sound, the Legacy of the Beatles Great Masterpiece ($24.95, Sterling) by Mike McInnerery, Bill DeMain and Gillian G. Gaar was released.Alter egos and last notesBecoming Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band was a way for the Beatles to liberate themselves from fans and critics expectations. According to Paul McCartney (in Paul Du Noyers book, Conversations With McCartney), ... we were fed up of being The Beatles It was so bloody predictable. I said, Why dont we pretend that were another band? Make up a name for it, make up alter egos, so we can make a whole album from the point of view of this other band. So instead of thinking, what would John do or what would Paul do, they would ask, What would the far-out side of you do? Rather than the marketing mans dream. You could get away from those constrictions of the record company It freed us to make more daring decisions than youd normally make. In his book Love For Sale: Pop Music in America, David Hajdu writes: According to McCartney, the original idea was for the album to tell the story of one man, the fictional Sgt. Pepper, from birth to death. Abandoning that, the Beatles took up the notion of performing under an alias, the Lonely Hearts Club Band that they portray on the cover art, with the albums songs representing the imaginary groups repertoire. But, that doesnt quite hold together, Mr. Hajdu says, pointing out George Harrisons raga Within You Without You and the grand orchestral sounds of A Day in the Life. And as for that long, extended, last note, Mr. Du Noyer says in his book that McCartney was influenced by avantgarde musicians John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen. To create that note, the Beatles asked the orchestra to start at the lowest note on their instrument and go to their highest note over the span of 15 bars and play that at any speed they wished. Its like Brian Eno, a little set of instructions, written on a piece of paper. When he explained it to the musicians, they were puzzled. But, McCartney notes, the string players stayed together, like a herd of sheep but the brass didnt care and played at their own speed. Mr. Hajdu recalls the first time he heard the Sgt. Pepper album, and how he realized it had changed music and the way we listened to it forever. A friend of his sisters had come over with a portable record player and the album. Mr. Hajdu listened from the hall outside his sisters room, sneaking peeks through the slightly open door. I could barely process what I was seeing, he writes. The girls had set up the record player on the floor, sat around it and listened to the album from start to finish, barely speaking. I had never before witnessed such concentrated, deferential attentiveness to any art and had never seen teenagers so quiet, outside of church. This was a social ritual wholly unlike the giddy jerking and frugging to 45s that I had seen before. He quotes McCartney again: We didnt have to be good little boys and do what the grown-ups told us anymore. We were all grown up ourselves. And while each new generation discovers the Beatles, the generation that heard each new album when it was released on vinyl grew up with the band. Were all grown-ups now. Many of us have children and grandchildren. Weve buried parents and friends. Weve buried two Beatles: John and George. But the music still sounds good, of its time, yet timeless. Its not necessarily a nostalgic thing, though of course that comes into play. The music still sounds as fresh and exciting and new as it first did. And thats the mark of true, lasting art. tth JhdhtldPl s li b th ti al ha w er co pl li s h i s th r I w g i r on li st to n e v ce n t o m R nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

WELL DONE MEDIUM DAD CONTRACT BRIDGELets not get rambunctious BY STEVE BECKERIt might seem that declarer must go down one at three spades doubled, losing three diamonds and two trump tricks. But the fact is that South made the contract, and there was nothing the defenders could do about it after Wests club lead. Declarer took Easts queen with the ace, cashed the A-K of hearts and ruffed a heart, establishing dummys two remaining hearts. He then ruffed a club in dummy and returned the ten of hearts. It did not matter whether or not East ruffed, because in either case South would score nine tricks. In practice, East ruffed low, South discarded a diamond and East-West later scored two diamonds and the ace of trumps to finish with just four tricks. Had East discarded a club on the ten of hearts, South would again have discarded a diamond, forcing West to ruff with the ten of spades. Declarer would later finesse against Easts queen of spades to limit himself to four losers and again make three spades doubled. West could have justified his doubtful double of three spades with the inspired lead of a low diamond at trick one. Had he made this unusual lead, the defense could have scored three diamond tricks at once and two trump tricks later on to nip the contract by an eyelash. Wests double was a violation of the general principle that you should not double for penalties unless you expect to beat the opposing contract at least two tricks. West had no good reason to expect a two-trick set after his partner opened the bidding but then passed at his next opportunity, and he should have subsided peacefully.

Its a touching story that also shows how in many ways the dog saves her life as well. Rated PG-13.Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush) Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp), his archenemy Salazar (Bardem), and frenemy Barbossa (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.Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, David Thewlis) An American soldier (Pine) crashes on warrior princess Dianas (Gadot) hidden island, which prompts her to help the good guys win The Great War. The visuals pop in IMAX 3D, the action is clear and exciting, and Gadot is really coming into her own as Wonder Woman. Rated PG-13.Baywatch (Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra) Stern lifeguard leader Mitch (Johnson) tries to get a new recruit (Efron) on board with his team concept as they search for a drug dealer (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 (Schreiber) works his way through the ranks to a title shot with Muhammad Ali. Based on the true story that served as Sylvester Stallones inspiration for Rocky. So its a pretty cool true story. 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. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou) Origin story of how Arthur (Hunnam) came to be king, including getting revenge on the man (Law) who killed his parents. The editing is so frenetic, and the rest of it so profoundly average, that this is a letdown for Warner Bros., which would like it to be the first of a six-part franchise. Rated PG-13.The Wall (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, John Cena, Laith Nakli) American soldiers (TaylorJohnson 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.

YesThe past cannot remain buried forever, Russell Crowes Dr. Henry Jekyll tells treasure hunter Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) in The Mummy. And darn if that doesnt come true. This is a reboot that feels different from its predecessors (a 1932 original and a 1999 remake), and as a result has a freshness that allows for maximum effectiveness. Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) was mummified and buried alive in Ancient Egypt. Thats okay, she did bad things. In the present, greedy soldier of fortune Nick, along with his cohort Chris (Jake Johnson) and archaeologist Jenny (Annabelle Wallis), happen upon the princess thoroughly buried tomb and think its a good idea to transport it to London. Apparently the six statue watchers, three chains surrounding the tomb and the fact that Ahmanet is buried in mercury werent enough to convince them to leave it alone, even though Jenny at one point calls the burial a prison. So sure, its one of those movies in which smart people do dumb things for the sake of the plot. There are worse things, right? On the way to London, the plane crashes (the films best and coolest action sequence), and Nick and Chris die. Ahmanet has risen. Then Nick wakes up in the morgue, surprised to learn hes become Ahmanets Chosen One to help her take over the world. It becomes an internal struggle for Nick as he tries to protect Jenny while being lured to join evil. Admittedly, the storys a bit thin and Ahmanet could use a bit more malice. But theres a sense of playfulness about it that works. The screenplay by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman treats it as the lighthearted horror flick it is, and credit to Mr. Cruise for conveying timely humor at moments that otherwise feel too serious. Overall, the action is decent, the story is easy to follow and its an amusing time at the movies. Isnt that exactly what youre looking for when you buy your ticket? You likely recognize the name of Mr. Crowes character, Dr. Henry Jekyll. Yes, at one point he becomes Mr. Hyde. Why Dr. Jekyll would be in charge of Prodigium, the organization that tracks and eliminates monsters around the world, is anyones guess. Rest assured, though, that director Alex Kurtzman doesnt cram too much into one movie. In fact, this is the first installment of a planned Dark Universe that Universal Pictures is launching; the next film is director Bill Condons Bride of Frankenstein, coming Feb. 14, 2019. No doubt Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde will appear again. Future installments of the Dark Universe will star Javier Bardem as Frankensteins Monster and Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man. As for The Mummy, its respectable. It might not get this hopeful franchise off to a flying start, but its certainly off to a decent enough one to warrant a follow-up. t f m l M Y dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com >> The tagline for The Mummy A new world of Gods and Monsters is taken from a line in the original Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

She and her husband, Ernie, had downsized to Fort Myers from New Hampshire clearly were a little more to the manner born than the rest of us. They walked a miniature poodle named Simone-Simone (nicknamed Simi) and had a dcor that was accented with antiques. Mrs. Coons had made a concession to Florida, though, buying a good-quality white dining set and filling the hutch with Wedgwood Jasperware. Oh, it was gorgeous, and I remember Grandma telling us that it was important enough Mrs. Coons carried a special insurance rider on the collection of English pottery. Back then, Wedgwoods blue and white Jasperware was ubiquitous. Youd see it everywhere from department stores to jewelry stores, along with a few spots in between. Jasperware, created by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1760s was inspired by the Roman cameo-glass Portland vase, which now resides in The British Museum. Much of the ware, usually seen with a white design atop a blue background, bears a classical motif. It would have appealed to an audience fascinated by architectural digs at Pompeii and elsewhere across Europe. The ware was popular enough that other companies wanted to get in on the act, and you can find pieces made by other English firms, as well as German and French companies Ive even seen some rather sad-looking replicas that were made in Japan. And it was pricey, at least for the time. New pieces often started at $20 for pin dishes and ashtrays. Antiques, like Mrs. Coons pieces, could well have been priced in the thousands. Curiously, new pieces still fetch in the hundreds a single Jasperware cup and saucer set sells for $235 on Wedgwoods website. But the secondary market is another matter, especially in Florida. I recently saw pin dishes priced at $2 apiece at Goodwill and passed on them. After all, I didnt need them and, thanks to changing markets, prices for the pottery have dropped precipitously. Part of it no doubt has to do with all the pieces that are out there on that secondary market. As with Hummels and other collectibles, everyones mother, grandmother or aunt owned pieces of Wedgwood.

At first blush, it would appear to be a piece of Wedgwood. But that companys wares typically are a solid color with the white relief design applied to the outside. On the bottom, the piece simply is marked Milan. Online sources say the piece was made by the Dudson Co., of Hanley, Stoke-onTrent, home to many of the great English potteries. The mark suggests the piece dates from the mid-19th century, before U.S. and other laws required wares from other nations to bear the country of origin. Some sources refer to Dudson as the poor mans Wedgwood. Perhaps its not as fine as Wedgwood. But that does not matter. After all, the pitcher is attractive, with a distinctive shape and color. Equally fun: Dudson still is in business; in 1891, the company shifted its focus to restaurant ware. THE FIND:Dudson Pottery Jasperware pitcher COLLECTORS CORNERSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Dudson milk pitcher may remind you of Wedgwoods Jasperware. It was made in the second half of the 19th century. Older, rarer pieces still command higher prices. But there just is not the demand for most of the workaday pieces many of us inherited from our parents or grandparents, and thats too bad. I dont know what happened to Mrs. Coons collection. She was in her late 70s when she moved from Florida to Massachusetts to be near her family more than 30 years ago. But Id like to think her kids and grandkids valued it as much for its shades of white and blue as well as for whatever monetary value it may have had.

By the 1960s, important tennis matches were open to both amateurs and professionals, and winning players got a large amount of money as a prize. But there are many collectibles from early tennis events as well as equipment from the past 100 years. Since about 1870, some steins, vases, plates and even figurines pictured players and other tennis scenes. Old balls and racquets, even appropriate tennis clothing, are wanted. Q: My wife and I bought a blanket chest at an auction. Its made of cedar planks and has steel wheels. It measures 26 by 50 inches. It doesnt have any markings. I was told it came from an old basement here in Cookeville, Tenn. A: Your chest looks like it was made from Tennessee Red Cedar. Cedar chests were designed to store linens and woolens, and the aromatic cedar oil repels moths. They were popular graduation or wedding gifts, and many have been handed down through generations. While there are no markings on your chest, there were a few manufacturers of Tennessee Red Cedar chests in the Chattanooga area. One of them was the Tennessee Red Cedar and Novelty Co. Another was Roos Manufacturing Co. And a third was the Tennessee Furniture Co., which made a Cavalier line of cedar chests. All of the companies made chests with casters. Your chest probably was made in the 1930s, and its worth about $250. Q: I have a tiny bisque doll, which is about four inches tall. It has molded hair, painted brown eyes and rope joints. Marked on the back is Sarah S. Putnam, Germany. Id like to know who this is and the age of the doll. It is in perfect condition. A: Your doll was designed by Grace (not Sarah) S. Putnam. Born in California, Grace Storey Putnam (1877-1947) was divorced and trying to earn some money when she started designing dolls heads. In 1922, she copyrighted a wax dolls head designed to look like the head of a three-day-old infant. Within a couple of years, the doll, called Bye-Lo Baby, went into production, distributed by George Borgfeldt & Co., a New York importer. The first dolls heads were bisque and made in Germany. Bodies were cloth, made by the K & K Toy Co., a subsidiary of Borgfeldt, which also assembled them. They came in several sizes. Later, heads were composition, wood, vinyl, wax or celluloid, made in Germany or the U.S. Other dolls were all bisque, all composition or a comb. They were sold until 1952. Your dolls value depends on size, condition, age, and head and body type. Your doll was made sometime after 1925 and is worth about $200.

I can see a change in color (turning to a beige) in areas and think it might be drying out. I dont know if thats correct, but it needs help and I would like to preserve it. Should I be using some kind of oil to nourish it? A : Gutta-percha is made from sap from trees found primarily in Malaysia. It was molded and used to make toilet articles, canes, golf balls, knife handles, picture frames and other items in the 19th century. Today gutta-percha is used by dentists, who use it to fill root canals. Gutta-percha deteriorates when exposed to sunlight and can change color. Dont use oil to nourish it. Some oils will dissolve gutta-percha. Q: Can you give me guidance on this creamer that is shaped like a red devil? Its marked Royal Bayreuth with a lion holding a shield. A: Royal Bayreuth made some of Germanys most famous and fun antique porcelain. Royal Bayreuth is the name Americans use for porcelain that has been made since 1794 at the Royal Privileged Porcelain Factory in Tettau, Bavaria, Germany. It is the oldest porcelain factory in Bavaria still in operation. The company made jars, pitchers and teapots shaped like fruits, leaves, flowers, animals and people, as well as dinnerware sets, vases and decorative plates and bowls. Your 4-inch high red-glazed devil creamer was made between 1900 and 1915 and examples have sold at auction over the past five years from $90 to $325.

C20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Its an odd experience, where you focus on the background, and wish the actors would move out of the way because theyre blocking a familiar view. While its far from a thriving movie destination like New York City, a number of films have been shot locally, on what the Collier County Film Commission calls the Paradise Coast. From the Everglades to Fort Myers, directors have captured our beaches, islands, palm trees, sun and small towns on celluloid and digital video. Of course, not all of them are necessarily great art. On a scale of one to 10 (with 10 being excellent), many of them rate only twos or threes on the online site IMdb (The Internet Movie Data Base.) One even had its notoriety officially confirmed by being featured in the documentary The 50 Worst Films of All Time. Perhaps the most famous Southwest Florida movie is George A. Romeros 1985 Day of the Dead, which was shot in downtown Fort Myers. A cult favorite and the last of Mr. Romeros zombie trilogy, it follows the undead who roam the earth while a group of survivors hunker down in underground bunkers. Scenes shot along Main and Hendry streets and Edwards Drive show the former Fort Myers post office/federal building (now the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center) and the old Edison Theatre (which maintained the marquee but now houses lawyers). The cinematic apocalypse came to life every October when the city hosted Zombicon and thousands lurched through the downtown streets. With perhaps unintended humor, www.deadplaces.net compares scenes from Day of the Dead to how the same locations look today. We traveled to this location in the sweltering Summer of 2004, expecting to find many changes since 1985. What we found, however (and we think youll agree) is shockingly unmistakable, write the anonymous posters.Local flicks you probably missedFort Myers downtown can be seen in the background as actor Woody Harrelson crosses a street in the 1998 film Palmetto. Terror Inside, a 2008 film starring Corey Feldman and Tanya Memme, has scenes set in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. According to IMdb, the crew was composed of 37 film students from Valencia Community College in Orlando and 10 professional filmmakers. Coupe de Ville, a 1990 film starring Patrick Dempsey, Daniel Stern and Annabeth Gish, also contains scenes shot in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Escape from Cuba, a 2003 movie that went directly to video, was shot in Cape Coral. The lone user review on IMdb says, Might appeal to some women, but expect that nearly all male and female audiences will skip this film. Local filmmaker John Biffar wrote and directed Captiva Island, an 85-minute indie film set on Captiva and starring the late Ernest Borgnine, Arte Johnson (of TVs Laugh-In fame) and Bill Cobbs (who starred in Low Down and hosted the 2011Arts for ACT auction in Fort Myers). Night Moves, a 1975 movie featuring Gene Hackman as a private detective pursuing a missing persons case, has scenes of Sanibel Island in it. The late Arthur Penn, who also made classics such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Miracle Worker, Alices Restaurant and Little Big Man, directed. The 1995 mystery Just Cause, with Sean Connery, Lawrence Fishburne and Kate Capshaw, was shot on location in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Collier County. Gone Fishin, a 1997 buddy movie starring Danny Glover and Joe Pesci, was filmed in various places around Southwest Florida, including Fort Myers, Estero, Marco Island and Everglades National Park. And according to the official site of Fort Myers & Sanibel Florida Travel & Vacation Information, Blue Sky, starring Jessica Lange and Tommy Lee Jones, was shot in part in Fort Myers and North Captiva Island. Ms. Lange won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in this movie.So bad, theyre horribleThe Cotton Pickin Chicken Pluckers is a serious contender for the corniest, most-rednecky movie ever made. Shot in 1967 in Lehigh Acres, the movie features Hee-Haw-esque country songs and lazy hillbillies who drink moonshine out of jugs. It sets back the image of the South at least 50 years, reinforcing almost every stereotype. The movies tagline Its a swamp romp isnt exactly appealing either, unless youre a frog. But the 1966 movie The Fat Spy, filmed in Cape Coral, surely takes the prize as oddest Southwest Florida flick. This is the aforementioned film whose claim to fame is that it was featured in The 50 Worst Films of All Time. Directed by Joseph Cates, The Fat Spy stars Phyllis Diller (who wields a riding crop throughout most of the movie), Jack E. Leonard (playing identical twins) and Jayne Mansfield (who at one point slowly leans over directly in front of the camera lens, her cleavage filling the screen). Its difficult to determine whether the makers of The Fat Spy were attempting to replicate the teen beach movies of the time, or spoof them. Young people in bathing suits sing and dance on the sands of Cape Coral, which is presented as a nearly deserted island that contains the Fountain of Youth. One teen couple is making out on the beach when the boy bursts into song. Then all of a sudden, hes dressed in a dark three-piece suit and tie, and seated on a horse. (And this predates the ingenious Old Spice commercials by more than three decades.) The couple also winds up singing by the Iwo Jima replica monument. Sample dialogue: I dig this barren wastin blazing sun! Theres also this witty repartee with Mr. Leonard and Ms. Diller: Mr. Leonard: Your eyes! Theyre so beautiful! Where did you get these eyes? Ms. Diller: They came with the head. And according to IMdb: Perhaps because the production had run out of money, a final portion of this movie was never actually shot; instead, the camera simply pans over the script pages describing what occurred in the missing scenes. Some might say this is a perfect reflection of the area, but others might argue that the quintessential Southwest Floridian film has yet to be made. In the meantime, we can enjoy our spectacular gulf sunsets in real life, unencumbered by wooden acting, bad dialogue and implausible plots.

C22 WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY CELEBRITY EXTRAComing soon to TNT BY CINDY ELAVSKYletters@cindyelavsky.comReaders: TNT recently announced its slate of new programming, and I wanted to share with you all. First up are two new nonfiction series: Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse from Oscarand Emmy-winner Michael Moore, and Who Run the World? from Sarah Jessica Parker, Morgan Spurlock and Refinery29. TNT also is working with master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott to develop a night of original science-fiction programming. Initial plans call for the block to serve as a showcase for an hour-long series, shortform programs and other formats. The network has also ordered a pilot for Highland, a scripted drama written by Liz Sarnoff and starring actresscomedian Margaret Cho. And Daveed Diggs, who earned a Tony for the Broadway hit Hamilton, will star in the drama pilot Snowpiercer, directed by Scott Derrickson of Doctor Strange fame. Q: Will Pure Genius return for another season? I really liked the message of hope it gave me that someday medical science will advance to that degree. Sharon N., via email A: The medical drama starring Augustus Prew and Dermot Mulroney was given a 13-episode order for the 2016-17 season. The series focused on a billionaire (Mr. Prew) who dreams of building a hospital with ultimate cutting-edge technology to treat rare and incurable diseases. He partners with maverick surgeon Dr. Walter Wallace (Mr. Mulroney), who leads the effort in clearing out the bureaucracy of medicine to focus on advancing technology and saving lives at no cost to the patient. While this sounds like a wonderful premise for a medical series and for exploring in real life after airing all 13 commissioned episodes, CBS decided not to renew the order in the wake of mixed reviews and low ratings. Q: Can you tell me what Daniel Radcliffe is up to lately? Gal P., Columbus, OhioA: Daniel is making a foray into the world of comedy, starring with Owen Wilson in the Lorne Michaels-produced TBS comedy Miracle Workers, a workplace comedy set in heaven.

I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria, but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter (try not to gorge). An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal.

It seems hard to fathom these days, however, now that dishes such as ceviche, lomo saltado and tacu tacu have become as familiar as sushi and pizza. Well, perhaps not quite as familiar but certainly far more prevalent than they once were, thanks to establishments such as Incas Kitchen, the recently departed Coastal Peruvian, Lima and El Gaucho Inca, which made its way south to open a second location after six successful years in Fort Myers. Husband-and-wife owners Mario Maldonado and Rocio Navarrete a smart, ambitious team who look like they should be TV stars have built a loyal following in Fort Myers and, judging from the crowd on a recent Saturday night, theyre doing the same thing in Naples. The couple transformed the former Freds Diner into a chic restaurant with loads of sultry atmosphere wood floors, mosaic wall tiles, a long, sleek bar and plush banquettes along one wall. The lighting is subtle and, in fact, could have been a bit brighter in parts of the room where diners seemed to be struggling to read the voluminous menu. Lets talk about that menu. While El Gaucho Inca is Peruvian, its also Argentinean and Italian. Mr. Maldonado, the chef, hails from Argentina; Ms. Navarrete is Peruvian. I believe its his grandmother who has some Italian heritage and, hence, the menu includes all three cuisines. Im not sure of the family connection, but Rodrigo Maldonado (who looks a lot like Mariano) oversees the kitchen here. If I were a betting person, Id wager hes a sibling. My advice is to order a beverage, whether its a cocktail or wine, and then settle in to review the menu, which contains a page each of appetizers, vegetarian dishes, chefs specialties, homemade Italian pasta, Peruvian fare and Argentinean dishes. To start narrowing the choices, Id recommend eliminating any dish with an unidentified fish in it. That fish, it turned out when I asked, is swai, another name for the detestable basa, one of the most unhealthy and unpalatable fish on the planet. If I could, Id ban this fish from all restaurant menus. Much of it comes from Southwest Asia where it is farmed under less than optimal conditions, loaded with antibiotics that arent good for people and that also negatively impact the wild fish populations and the environment. We wound up with some of it in our ceviche del Inca ($18.95). It was mushy and tasteless. We left it and ate the shrimp, squid, corn, red onions and sweet potatoes instead. Were I to order this again, especially at this price, Id try the shrimp version. Im not sure why a restaurant that prides itself on quality would use this fish when Peruvians are accustomed to many of the fish we know and love tuna, yellowfin and pompano, among them. The Provoleta ($12.95) appetizer was excellent a little skillet of aged provolone cheese topped with tomatoes, oregano, olive oil and four perfectly seasoned and grilled shrimp. From the chefs specialties, the Lomo a las 3 Mostazas ($32) was a colorful and well-executed creation consisting of an 8-ounce filet mignon with a sauce containing a three-mustard tarragon sauce and a Chianti honey reduction, purple potato noisette, two asparagus spears and some festive little red peppers, all topped with fried leeks. The meat was tender and flavorful on its own, made more so by the mustard sauce. The potatoes were bitesized and lightly sweet in the honey reduction. The leeks added a satisfying crunch. My companion also tried a chefs specialty, this one the Trigoto a la Huancaina with Shrimp Saltado ($29). The menu described it as Peruvian wheat, which our server, who was new, had trouble describing. It resembled risotto with the classic cheesy huancaina sauce served next to the shrimp done in a traditional stir-fry with onions and tomatoes. This dish wasnt as satisfying as the other entre, with about two-thirds of the plate filled with the wheat (much like an Italian dish in which the bulk of the plate is covered in pasta). For dessert, we split a scoop of lucuma ice cream ($5.95) made from a fruit grown in the Andes that tastes a lot like caramel. It was fine but didnt have as vibrant a flavor as Ive tasted in other products made with lucuma. We also tried an Alfajor ($3.50) cookie, a sandwich cookie made with cornstarch and stuffed with dulce de leche. It was incredibly sweet too sweet for me, but thats a matter of individual taste. Service was friendly but sluggish, even early on when there werent many people there. As the dining room filled up, it got worse. A couple two tables from us grew noticeably and justifiably impatient as they waited well over 30 minutes for wine and still longer for bread and food. I know its tough to gauge how many servers to schedule during off-season evenings, but it should still be all hands on deck on Saturdays. El Gaucho Naples, like its northern sibling, has many fine qualities. Heres hoping the management takes the slow summer season to brush up some of the rough spots and to find a fish other than basa to put on the menu. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com El Gaucho Inca>> Hours: 5-9:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 5-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 1-9 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price: Appetizers, $8.95$19.95; entrees, $9.95$39.95 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: Banquettes and conventional tables inside, tables outside >> Specialties of the house: Peruvian, Argentinean and Italian fare >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: www.elgauchoinca.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 2700 Immokalee Road, Naples; 431-7928SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYCeviche del Inca features a mix of marinated seafood with aji Amarillo chile.

The Ronto Groups TwinEagles community has been selected to host the 2018 Chubb Classic PGA TOUR Champions Golf Tournament to be held next February 12th through 18th. The 2018 event will mark the seventh consecutive year and 12th time overall TwinEagles Talon golf course has served as the Tournament site. The world class golf tournament is televised nationally on The Golf Channel and attracts the strongest field of competitors from the Official Money List and legends from the World Golf Hall of Fame. The Chubb Classic has a tradition of charitable donation. In the 30-years the PGA TOUR Champions has been in Naples, over $3 million has been donated to various initiatives. The official host charity of the 2018 Tournament is The First Tee of Naples/Collier. The First Tee is an initiative of the World Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in St. Augustine at World Golf Village. Its mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and lifeenhancing values through the game of golf. The Talon Course has long been a favorite of professional golfers. Set against a backdrop of oaks, palm trees, and lush landscaping, it is acknowledged as one of the finest private club courses in the country. The Talon was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son and is widely regarded as the top residential golf course in Southwest Florida. The challenging yet fair 7,193-yard course features all of Nicklaus signature design elements, including length, tricky approaches, undulating greens, bunkering, mounding, and water hazards. The Talon Course is one of two golf courses at TwinEagles. After purchasing the community in September 2010, Ronto worked with noted golf course architect Steve Smyers to create a new course that has a challenging historical design with modern yardages. When the new Eagle Course opened, it was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. Smyers and his design associate, Patrick Andrews, consider the Eagle Course a true work of art that makes the most of the natural setting. Members at TwinEagles have access to one of the worlds most respected golf instructors. Dr Jim Doc Suttie is ranked 17th on Golf Digests list of best teachers in America. In 2000, he was named the PGA of Americas National Teacher of the Year and is a three-time winner of the Teacher of the Year award from the PGAs Illinois Section. Hes also included among Golf Magazines Top 100 Teachers and ranked as one of the Top 20 teachers in America on Golf Digests 50 Greatest Teachers list. For TwinEagles members, hosting the Chubb Classic is a source of pride. Members are afforded an opportunity to be fully engaged during tournament week.

This is a nationally televised tournament with some of the best golfers in the world. All of us, the members and the staff, know this is a wonderful moment for TwinEagles to shine and for the national audience to see just how special this place is.

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. A full golf membership is included with the purchase of every newly constructed home at TwinEagles. The golf courses provide a magical tableau for the grand estate neighborhoods tucked along lush fairways and shimmering lakes that offer breathtaking vistas and a sense of privacy. A 47,000 square-foot clubhouse pays homage to St. Andrews where the game of golf was born.

The information provided above is not intended to be an offering and should be considered as informational only.Sure, every town has its beautiful park or its lake view. Its grand home or its city hall. But the truth is most towns arent created at all. This one is. Babcock Ranch is an entirely new kind of town. One where the streets are planned but the wilderness isnt. Where energy comes from the oldest source in the world and powers the very newest technology. Where luxurious amenities come at an unluxurious price. This is a town where the frontier meets the front porch in a way thats never been seen before.ALL TOWNS ARENT CREATED EQUAL. A better lifeBABCOCKRANCH.COM 888-979-7220Models by Fox Premier Builders nearing completion at Babcock RanchFox Premier Builders Camden and Cabin furnished models are expected to be completed by the end of this month in the Lake Timber neighborhood at Babcock Ranch, a new 18,000-acre solar powered town being developed by Kitson & Partners 20 minutes east of Fort Myers off Florida State Road 31 in Charlotte County just north of the Lee Civic Center. Completed models by Stock Development, Homes by Towne, and Florida Lifestyle Homes are open for viewing in Lake Timber. Each of the homes at Babcock Ranch is being built to Florida Green Building Coalition Certification standards. Base-priced from the $300s and situated on 50 or 60 x 130-foot home sites, Foxs Cottage Collection floor plans were designed by Cooter Ramsey of Allison, Ramsey & Associates and by Timberbuilt. Each plan includes a covered front porch and accommodates a SIP Panel Construction process developed by New Panel Homes. The system is durable, resistant to extreme weather, energy efficient, and cost effective. The two-story, 2,029 square feet, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Camden model by Allison, Ramsey & Associates includes a front porch that wraps one side of the home and across a portion of the rear. The interior features a living room with a fireplace, a dining area and island kitchen, and a first-floor master suite. The upstairs offers a media room, two bedrooms, and a covered porch. The color palette includes neutral backgrounds, warm greys, charcoal finishes and yellow accents. The model includes a suspended swing on the front porch finished in a distressed yellow. The two-story, 2,001 square feet Cabin model features a great room, dining, and kitchen area on the first floor, plus a master suite with a full bath. The upstairs includes a loft and a second master suite with a full bath. With its rustic style, the Cabin conveys a casual feeling. Designed by Timberbuilt, the Cabin combines the SIPs construction process with hybrid timber framing, timber exterior finishes, and interior beamed ceiling details while leaving a minimal carbon footprint. Insulspan SIP panels reduce energy consumption and construction costs. Lake Timbers Lake House neighborhood center is expected to be completed by early July. The neighborhood is a short walk or bike ride from Downtowns Founders Square, a 13-acre lakefront green featuring a waterfront boardwalk, band shell, bike, kayak, paddle board, and row boat rentals, and a splash pad.

6 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 contracts remain strongKalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, announced the communitys second tower has been released for sale. Our first tower, which is under construction and scheduled to be completed in November, is 90 percent sold mark, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2. Currently, the number of residences under contract in our second tower exceeds the $65 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants 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.
