MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYThe pale-stales among usLawyers, white men and the media. As a culture, weve made them some of our favorite targets nowadays. We habitually nail them to the barn door and blaze away, just for fun. When I say we, I dont mean you jokesters and fun-lovers. I mean people who lower judgment on the species because they dont like some of the individuals. A friend of mine, a woman, posted the following masterpiece of the comedic counterpunch on Facebook last week, which is why Im thinking about it: Yep ... in what seems like an epidemic of pale, stale males making misogynistic remarks this week, Naples, Florida can claim its very own: State University System board member Ed Morton, who suggested womens genes are to blame for their lower salaries. Morton apologized a day later and said he chose his words poorly, but it does seem like that happens to old white guys a lot ... maybe its genetic? Man, I love that. As an old white man, a pale, stale myself, I cant disagree with anything she wrote, including the cruise-missile question at the end. But thats the fun of it, and I approve of fun. In truth, though, the implication its just men, or thats how men are makes no more sense to me than saying, Thats just how women are when you see one driving poorly. Ive heard men say that all my life, ignoring the countless idiot male drivers on the road and the many fine female drivers. The same notion holds true for me with lawyers and the media. Lawyers work hard and, like us, theyre human, many of them, Dick Cavett once said, not to be outdone by Henry Rollins: If you think about it, every single species is endangered. Human beings at the front of the line, lawyers and mosquitos at the back. Thats a bunch of fun. Jimmy Swaggart probably forgot about fun, though, when he declared in the solemn tones of the anointed, The media is ruled by Satan. But yet I wonder if many Christians understand that. No doubt he thinks lawyers are ruled by Satan, too, along with women or anybody else who doesnt believe what he tells them to believe. As Americans, we depend on men. And on women. And on men and women who like each other (a lot). And we even depend on lawyers and the media, whether they like each other a lot, or not. While each of those human (or animal we are talking about lawyers, after all) species includes some bad apples, theyre essential to the way we live and think. Lawyers in the U.S. represent the greatest collusion by a set of humans known as Americans, in this case ever undertaken to protect the rights of individuals against assaults by people with more power or money or different opinions. Without violence, in courts of law. Our system depends on law. If its imperfect, its still better than a lawless or deeply slanted alternative. Lawyers are a significant part of the reason we have it so good, not the other way around. The media is another significant part of the reason we have it so good. Reporters and their news outlets remain essential in giving Americans a rudimentary knowledge of events and actions conducted by people in power. Or people who can influence their lives with money or position or even stealth decision-making. Those people would often prefer not to let the rest of us know what theyre doing because it would be so much easier to do if they could avoid exposure. Here are three real examples, happening now in Florida and the U.S. If a city government decides to dump toxic waste in the vacant lots of a poor black neighborhood and bury it, and city officials for decades decide to ignore the problem and not fix it, reporters doing their jobs and there are many will remind you. If state government officials let themselves be flown to the distant hunting chalets of an agricultural corporation and be treated in grand style, then turn a blind eye to the massive environmental destruction that corporation caused, asking taxpayers to clean it up on behalf of the corporation, reporters doing their jobs will let you know. If federal officials decide to shape laws without your knowledge, out of the sunshine, and those laws will make you, your children and your aging parents poorer and less healthy, reporters doing their jobs will let you know. Thats the media, which some have taken to calling the responsible media. No need to add the adjective, though. For a fair-minded person, there is nothing difficult about distinguishing that media from blowhards, shock-jockeys, didacts, liars and propagandists who use ink, airwaves or electronic outlets to mouth off. There is now a pale, stale male or two in the White House and a whole covey of them in the Congress. We hear about them every day. They would prefer to do away with the media, which will report that fact to you, along with other facts, because reporters are doing their jobs. I would hope you target shooters refrain from judging all of us pale-stales by the White House examples. o i m s roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The United States and China led the negotiations. Both bore the brunt of responsibility for the conventions success. The United States is second only to China as the worlds largest emitter of greenhouse gases. And the convention was a success. The 195 countries attending signed the 2015 Climate Change Agreement and negotiated by consensus its follow-up. Representatives of the signatories agreed to meet again in Paris that same year to reach an international plan of action. The preamble to the Paris climate agreement went something like this: Whereas the Earths atmosphere, oceans, land surfaces and ice are changing rapidly; whereas global warming is the cause; whereas human activity is a major driver of climate change and its effects on the planet; and whereas we, as world leaders, do hereby acknowledge these truths are abundantly self-evident, we do jointly agree the time has come to act. Therefore, let it be known, we, the undersigned nations, do hereby pledge to reduce together and separately the greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change, abate other known causes of global warming and promulgate alternative sources of green energy. By our due diligence, we will avoid and/or reduce the catastrophic effects on the world of global warming. Let none say we chose to twiddle our thumbs and do nothing. Long live Mother Earth! This could be a plotline straight out of Marvel Comics. Courageous humans rally to protect the world from disaster. Time is running out. The pace of change is escalating. Dominoes cascade, triggering environmental consequences 100 years into the future. Calamities are foretold. Brave scientists sound the alarm. World leaders respond with urgency. Historical and political differences must be overcome to unite as one world to battle the foe. Miraculously, they do. The lion lays down by the lamb, the leopard by the goat. Barriers to the self-sacrifice of sovereign nations are overcome, for humanity and the Earths greater good. This act of selflessness becomes celebrated worldwide as the day the Earth stood still. It will be remembered as an enlightened moment in all human history, though it may not fully succeed. Still, despite profligate deniers and skeptics, the world acknowledged climate change is happening, global warming is its cause, and human activity is its main driver. The climate agreement is the global genesis of humans as stewards of the planet. Its purpose is noble and ennobling. Light prevailed over dark descending. And it was good. So sayeth President Obama. The 2014 White House Assessment on Climate Change gave warning to Americans of the hazards of soiling our own and others nests. More than 300 scientific experts, guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee, issued the report. Public and experts vetted the publication, including federal agencies and the National Academy of Sciences. It bore witness to the climate change already at hand: Residents of some coastal cities see their streets flood more regularly during storms and high tides. Inland cities near large rivers also experience more flooding, especially in the Midwest and Northeast. Hotter and drier weather and earlier snow melt mean that wildfires in the West start earlier in the spring, last later into the fall, and burn more acreage. In Arctic Alaska, the summer sea ice that once protected the coasts has receded, and autumn storms now cause more erosion, threatening many communities with relocation. This is only the tip of the proverbial-but-nowmelting iceberg. Florida is in the crosshairs of climate change. It will suffer severe environmental consequences if it fails to adequately anticipate and prepare for whats coming. But this is the trajectory we are on. The day after President Trump walked from the Paris deal, Patricia Mazzei of the Miami Herald reported that of the three top Republicans in Floridas state government Gov. Scott, Senate President Joe Negron and House Speaker Richard Corcoran only Negron is willing to grudgingly admit human activity contributes to climate change. The professed ignorance of our states leaders comes at a high price to the states future. Job losses feared because of efforts to mitigate against climate change pale in comparison to the economic devastation awaiting places highly vulnerable to rising seas because of it like Florida. Scott, Corcoran and Negron are playing the short game. They and lawmakers like them have been playing it a long time at the states expense. Theyve allowed Florida to be bulldozed, flattened, drained, dredged, polluted, flooded and otherwise abused with astonishing rapaciousness. The damage done, they just move on, to perpetuate it someplace else. But they are running out of rope. Climate change is the long game. It wont be won by those who cant see beyond the short term and who serve only their own self-interests. Play the short game on a global scale and take it to its conclusion. Then be warned: There is no planet b. Leslie Lilly writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy, earning national recognition for her leadership in the charitable sector. Email her at llilly@floridaweekly. com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com Yes, hate speech is free speechWith the left feverishly attempting to squash unwelcome speech on college campuses, with the president of the United States musing about tightening libel laws, with prominent liberals asserting that so-called hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment, free speech in America at least has one reliable friend the Supreme Court of the United States. In a firm 8-0 decision, the court slapped down the Patent and Trademark Office for denying federal trademark registration to a band named The Slants, a derogatory term for Asian-Americans. As it happens, The Slants is an Asian-American band that seeks to reclaim and take ownership of anti-Asian stereotypes (it has released albums called The Yellow Album and Slanted Eyes, Slanted Hearts). This didnt matter to the trademark office any more than it presumably would to the dean of students at the average liberal-arts college. The litigation hinged on a provision of federal trademark law referred to as the disparagement clause. This clause forbids registration for any trademark which may disparage ... persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or bring them into contempt or disrepute. Taken literally, this provision would forbid the disparagement of the KKK, an institution; or Benito Mussolini, a person who is dead; or Vladimir Putin, a person who is living. The trademark office interprets the clause with all the wisdom youd expect of a federal bureaucracy. As its manual puts it, an examiner determines whether or not the mark would be found disparaging by a substantial composite, although not necessarily a majority, of the referenced group. So, merely a plurality of the offended will do, and common sense is no defense. This is classic safe-space reasoning the harm that would allegedly befall some portion of a group from encountering an offending trademark should trump the free-speech rights of the likes of The Slants. The court utterly r ejected this posture, deeming it inimical to a free society and untenable under the U.S. Constitution. In a passage that should be pasted into the student handbook of every college and read aloud by progressives who have convinced themselves that hate speech is not free speech, the court held, Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express the thought that we hate. As the courts concurring opinion noted, basing the trademark prohibition on the presumed reactions of an offended group doesnt help a speech burden based on audience reactions is simply government hostility and intervention in a different guise. The disparagement clause was the wedge that activists were trying to use to force the Washington Redskins to change the NFL teams name (the team has been fighting the cancellation of its trademark in court). And every effort by the speech police to spread their operations from college campuses to the wider society must be resisted. In this case, they came for a selfdescribed Chinatown Dance Rock band with a cheeky name, and the Supreme Court said, Sorry, not in America.

AAA predicts record July 4 travelersMore Americans will travel this Independence Day than ever before, according to a AAA forecast that says 44.2 million Americans (2.3 million Floridians) will take to the nations roads, skies, rails and waterways an increase of 1.3 million Americans (103,000 Floridians) from last years holiday. This Independence Day will be historic, said Vicky Evans of AAAThe Auto Club Group. Traveler numbers are up and prices are down, adding to what has already been a bustling summer travel season, she added. With new attractions debuting at popular theme parks, Orlando claims the No. 1 spot on the list of most-visited locales for 2017 summer travel based on AAAs summer travel bookings. Defined as Friday, June 30, to Tuesday, July 4, the Independence Day holiday is usually the most-traveled of the big three summer holidays, ahead of Memorial Day and Labor Day, because it falls in the middle of summer when school is out, Ms. Evans said. AAA has been reporting on holiday travel trends for more than two decades. Heres how this year looks: 44.2 million Americans are expected to travel, 2.9 percent more than last year (2.3 million Floridians are expected to travel, 4.8 percent more than last year). 37.5 million Americans will drive, 2.9 percent more than last year (2 million Floridians will drive, 5 percent more than last year). 3.4 million Americans will fly, 4.6 percent more than last year (168,556 Floridians will fly, 5.1 percent more than last year). 3.3 million Americans will take other modes of transportation (including cruises, trains and buses, 1.4 percent more than last year (125,305 Floridians will take other modes of transportation, 1.4 percent more than last year). AAA expects to rescue more than 338,000 motorists over the holiday weekend travel period, with the primary reasons being lockouts, flat tires and battery-related issues.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYafford to live where they work. Nor can those employed in lower-paying jobs and senior citizens living on a fixed income. A limited supply of affordable houses and rentals in Collier County is forcing many workers to opt between commuting from another county or finding incounty housing at the risk of significant financial burden. Some 16,800 employees are choosing to live elsewhere. The Community Housing Plan Stakeholders Committee, appointed by the Board of County Commissions, is tasked with finding solutions. Chairman Nick Kouloheras, president of Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, says households need to gross about $128,000 annually to afford the countys median home price. The affordability spectrum covers a wide range of people, Mr. Kouloheras says. The public has the perception that affordable housing is for those working in the hospitality or farming industry or construction labor force. But housing affordability in Collier County touches everybodys life. Its employees who provide services like first responders and landscape maintenance. Theres a huge lack of decent affordable housing for retirees and people with disabilities. Christine Welton, executive director of the Hunger & Homeless Coalition of Collier County and a member of the stakeholders committee, calls affordable housing an everybody issue. Its not just the homeless or the working poor. More senior citizens are going to shelters because they cant afford to live here, and the shelters arent equipped to handle that clientele. Most of these seniors have lived here a long time and their rent is going up and they cant afford it. Recent analytics by John Burns Real Estate Consulting in Estero place the median Naples resale home price at $397,000 and as high as $530,000 for a new home, according to Kristine Smale, senior manager. The firms proprietary affordability index ranks Naples at 8.2 on a 10-point scale, compared to a five rating in 2013. Its been climbing since 2014 and has been hovering between the seven and 8.5 range, says Ms. Smale. Its the second least affordable market in the state. By comparison, the average Naples rental is $1,300. In Naples, its still cheaper to rent than to buy a median-priced home, she says. Prices are so high, people pay $1,200 more for mortgage, insurance and all the things that go into owning a home compared to renting an apartment. And thats for those spending no more than the Department of Housing and Urban Developments recommended 30 percent of gross annual income on housing costs. The Shimberg Center at the University of Florida estimated 58,685, or 40 percent, of Collier Countys 140,131 households in 2015 were considered costburdened, doling out more than 30 percent for housing. Of those, 29,342 spent more than 50 percent for a roof over their heads. They included nurses, teachers, police officers, firefighters, entry level or nonprofit professionals, service industry workers and government employees. Even attorneys and doctors beginning their careers. Today, the countys median wage is $69,759. After a fire in a building at Bear Creek apartments displaced 13 families in April, Ms. Welton spent weeks trying to find housing for a pregnant single-mother of two. She has a four-year college degree, makes $40,000 a year and works in the community. Thats crazy she cant afford to live here. The woman is now paying $1,400 for a two-bedroom condo above the 30 percent benchmark. Straining the economyThe absence of affordable housing in Collier County impacts nearly every element of the local economy, says Michael Dalby, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. Businesses have trouble recruiting and retaining new employees, and workers choose to live in other counties where they spend their money and pay property taxes while placing a burden on the countys roads and infrastructure during their daily commute. Tackling affordable housing is the chambers No. 1 goal in 2017 and an issue its been working on for the past 1.5 years, Mr. Dalby says. This is an issue that requires a lot of different approaches, he says. There is no one silver bullet. We know this is not a unique issue for resort communities or metro cities. It is a major issue in Florida and we have to address it while making an effort to maintain the beauty and quality of life in Naples. For years, the parking lot at Hodges University on Immokalee Road served as a reminder of the lack of affordable housing for those in the service industry here: Collier County Sheriff Office deputies, who until a policy change this year were not allowed to drive their take-home cruiser across county borders, parked their cruisers in the university lot at the end of their shifts and then drove their personal vehicles to their homes in Lee County. The university parking lot provided a strategic location, each morning and evening resembling a staging area for a DUI checkpoint or wolf pack. Not living where one works also impacts community character. Residents dont get to interact with their neighborhood police officer or paramedic, see him or her mowing grass or attending a childs ballgame or school event. Christopher Spencer, president of the North Collier Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics Local 2297, says many of his fellow first responders live in Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral and other Lee County HOUSINGFrom page 1 ANNUAL PERCENTAGE PERCENTAGE OF INCOME NEEDED TO AFFORD: HOUSEHOLD OF AREA MEDIAN MEDIAN-PRICE MEDIAN-PRICE INCOME MEDIAN INCOME RENT1 HOME2 CONDO3 $20,160 30% 61% 149% 101% $29,600 50 41 101 69 $47,300 80 26 63 43 $59,125 100 21 51 35 $65,038 110 19 46 31 $70,950 120 17 42 29 $88,688 150 14 34 23Housing cost burden in Collier CountyIn a 2015 study, two out of every ve households in Collier County were cost burdened, with one in ve severely cost burdened meaning they spent more than 50 percent of their gross income on housing.SOURCES: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT; THE 2016 COLLIER COUNTY ECONOMIC, DEMOGRAPHIC & COMMUNITY PROFILE; THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY.Burden for three-person household earning 30 to 150 percent of area median income PROFESSION ANNUAL WAGE RANGE MEDIAN 2015 MEDIAN Health care (ENTRY TO MEDIAN) GROSS RENT HOME SALE PRICE Registered nurse $47,000$65,000 24% 38% Medical assistant $30,000$35,000 41% 68% Emergency technician $28,000$36,000 42% 68% Education Teacher $44,000$59,000 28% 50% Teaching assistant $22,000$24,000 45% 101% Public safety Fire ghter $39,000$57,000 29% 43% Patrol of cer $47,000$59,000 26% 41% Service workers Maid and housekeeping $18,000$22,000 66% 109% Massage therapist $26,000$55,000 37% 44% Concierge $25,000$31,000 48% 78% Entry-level/midtier professional Human resources spec. $35,000$55,000 31% 45% Dental assistant $33,000$43,000 36% 57% Administrative assistant $22,000$33,000 49% 73%Estimated cost burden for households headed by selected wage earnersHOUSING COST AS PERCENTAGE OF GROSS INCOME 1 $1,020 PER MONTH, AS DEFINED BY THE SHIMBERG CENTER IN 2015. 2 $405,000, 30 YEAR MORTGAGE AND INTEREST, 20 PERCENT DOWNPAYMENT PLUS ESTIMATED HOMEOWNERS AND FLOOD INSURANCE AND PROPERTY TAXES. 3 $257,000, 30 YEAR MORTGAGE AND INTEREST, 20 PERCENT DOWNPAYMENT PLUS ESTIMATED HOMEOWNERS AND FLOOD INSURANCE AND PROPERTY TAXES.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 NEWS A11SEE HOUSING, A12 communities. Some also commute from Fort Lauderdale and other cities on Floridas east coast. Hes been an advocate of affordable housing for years. This is a big issue and a problem that goes beyond buying a house. There are no affordable rentals, Mr. Spencer says. And it doesnt just affect the people who wear the uniforms and badges people recognize; it affects hospital workers, maintenance people and others. Real estate is crazy expensive, he adds. Some of the younger guys live with their parents, and Im sure their parents arent thrilled. Mr. Spencer says firefighters salaries starting around $35,000 and averaging $65,000 for long-timers are not in line with the cost of living. Utilities are going up, housing costs are going up and salaries arent going up, he says. A dollar in Lee County goes further than a dollar in Collier County. Our guys are making money here and investing it in Lee County, Arcadia and Hendry County. He estimates a third of the departments employees live in Lee County. Some do rent here. They might find a guesthouse, but its tough for the guys making $35,000 who want to start a family.Try, try againCollier County took a stab at easing the affordable housing crisis during the last building boom, requiring developers to pay into an affordable housing trust based on the size of their proposed new development. The county collected $604,581 of an anticipated $8 million from 2005 to 2007, and then stopped as the market collapsed. In 2011 it ended the program and refunded developers for homes or lot sales that never happened. Some folks claim past committees looking into affordable housing solutions were comprised of too many real estate agents and those whod most benefit from higher home prices. The Community Housing Plan Stakeholders Committee formed last September is comprised of government and city representatives, developers, nonprofit groups, bankers and officials from schools, the sheriffs office and large employers including Naples Community Hospital, Publix and Arthrex. Im more encouraged than Ive ever been in 15 years of being in Collier County, Mr. Kouloheras says. The Board of County Commissioners is truly concerned and working to resolve this issue. My approach personally as a representative for Habitat is that we can make changes without adding a cost burden to taxpayers. The stakeholders group enlisted the help of the Urban Land Institute, which spent nearly a week in early February scouring the county, talking to civic leaders and citizens. The ULI noted that retirement and resort communities like the Naples area are notorious for their lack of affordable housing. The highly desirable area is home to millionaires and billionaires from around the world, ULIs final 49-page report noted. The organization also determined a need for action and implementation requiring political leadership and will and making unpopular decisions all necessary for Collier Countys long-term viability and sustainability. The county is projected to add another 58,000 households by 2040 and without resolving affordable housing, one-fifth will experience severe cost burden, the ULI report noted. Not taking action will also lead to brain drain to Lee County, competition instead of collaboration with neighboring counties, loss of county tax revenues and increased traffic congestion and impact on infrastructure. People most affected by home and rent prices are those in entry-level positions and employees earning median income rates in health care, public safety and professional sectors, the report said. Theyre more likely to experience a cost burden than are the people holding executive, management and supervisory positions Collectively the employment sectors that are the most at risk to incur a significant cost burden represent more than 50 percent of the local labor force.ULI recommendationsBut first, Collier County has to find its vision for what it wants to be when it grows up. The ULI made 35 recommendations, covering the gamut from changing county zoning to increase density, improving access to transportation, creating new revenue streams, using available public land or vacant and underused retail sites and forming and using a housing trust fund. Mr. Kouloheras says commissioners approved most of the suggestions for additional study by the stakeholders groups six subcommittees and rejected a handful, including increasing the minimum wage. The committee will present specific policies and options at the commissions Sept. 26 meeting. Just because a recommendation was a no-go for now doesnt mean its a no forever, Mr. Kouloheras says. Commissioners wanted us to focus on the other recommendations first. Both Mr. Kouloheras and Mr. Dalby are optimistic about the o utcome of the stakeholders final report. There have been studies done before by the county and organizations, but this is the first at this level involving this many stakeholders that Im aware of, Mr. Kouloheras says. Our whole mantra is if you havent been invited to participate on the committee, it doesnt mean you cant.The affordable housing equationCreating affordable housing in Collier County is a complex formula, accounting for factors beyond a homes price. Buyers also have to factor in homeowners insurance that is among the highest in Florida, mortgage insurance if they pay less than 20 percent down and flood insurance. The county also has to attract developers willing to build affordable housing units. Everyones objective is to make money, says Cormac Giblin, the countys grants and housing development manager. Some developers are interested if we can make it beneficial. Theyre willing to line up and do it if the numbers work. Changes allowing higher housing densities, speeding up the approval process and providing a degree of certainty of approval would help. Reducing requirements for sidewalks on both sides of a road and two feet of fill dirt would provide additional cost savings for developers. Traditionally, impact fees on new developments and buildings have theoretically offset the impact to infrastructure created by the project. But as the ULI noted, the fees are too dependent on a strong construction market. Its report provided snapshots of cities and municipalities that have implemented new or designated existing revenue streams to finance housing trusts. The Community Housing Plan Stakeholders Committee is researching a number of stable funding mechanisms for a trust. Among them are commercial linkage fees, a square footage-based fee representing the additional housing needs generated by new or redeveloped commercial property; a restaurant tax; philanthropic donations; fees in lieu of inclusionary zoning; and a -cent sales tax increase to fund infrastructure. Any new affordable housing location needs to be accessible to transportation. Families spend 19 percent of their income on transportation a figure slashed to 9 percent in transit-efficient areas. The stakeholders committee is exploring a number of options, including identifying major transit corridors, expanding park-and-ride opportunities and offering rapid transit and express service bus lines, the latter which have proven successful in Las Vegas. Its also considering ride-sharing programs modeled after an effective New Orleans initiative using smartphones and apps. Affordable housing is an everybody issue. Its not just the homeless or the working poor. More senior citizens are going to shelters because they cant afford to live here, and the shelters arent equipped to handle that clientele. Most of these seniors have lived here a long time and their rent is going up and they cant afford it.

But there are obstacles: Portions of some properties are wetlands or protected, some were donated through trusts, others have limited accessibility and a few are adjacent to upscale developments that could raise serious not-inmy-backyard objections. This is America and everyone is allowed to have their opinion, Mr. Kouloheras says. We have to change peoples views of affordable housing. There are stereotypes, but the reality is that affordable housing in Collier County is a household making a six-figure salary. By eliminating some of the steps in the process or regulations, it frees up capital we can improve the aesthetic value of a home or apartment. From the Habitat for Humanity standpoint, were creating communities and neighborhoods that look and have the feel more of a marketrate neighborhood. In April, NIMBYists persisted in getting the Naples City Council, a partner in the ULI study, to reject a proposal for workforce housing within its community redevelopment area between Goodlette-Frank Road and U.S. 41. Developers would have been allowed to exceed density for projects incorporating workforce housing. Residents successfully protested. Introducing affordable housing within the citys 14 square miles is next to impossible, sasys Mayor Bill Barnett. Land is limited and its expensive. Workforce housing is price prohibitive in an area like that. The city does offer workforce housing in the Jasmine Cay and George Washington Carver apartments, which the ULI cited as a good examples of community land trusts that reduce costs to developers. Land outside the city limits is also expensive, exorbitant, says Kathy Curatolo, CEO of the Collier Building Industry Association. The preliminary 2016 record-breaking property reports showed the largest gains 14 to 15 percent over 2015 in Golden Gate, Golden Gate Estates, East Naples and Immokalee.Selling it to the countyThe stakeholders goal is to show county commissioners higher density doesnt mean congestion or unattractive. In fact, the ULI noted mixed-income communities are healthier than homogenous, low-income neighborhoods because they prevent blight, support the upwardly mobile and help retain property values all points the communications subcommittee will make in its efforts to change attitudes to YIMBY, or yes in my backyard. We feel its time to begin a campaign to clarify what we mean by workforce housing using social media to show images of a nurse, teacher, bank manager, sheriffs deputy, etc., and explain that we need them and they need housing thats affordable, the communications committee reported. It suggested using school and hospital officials and Sheriff Kevin Rambosk making brief video statements that housing challenges are beginning to impact their ability to find staff, and that when those staff live outside our community, we lose their off-duty contributions in our neighborhoods. Ultimately, its Collier County commissioners who will shape the future, determining which policies get implemented and those that get nixed. Some of those decisions could prove unpopular. There has to be strong political will, Mr. Kouloheras says. At the end of the day there are tough decisions to be made. It may be controversial, but you have to consider the county was once all farms and agriculture and when decisions were made for new communities, those were unpopular, too. The CBIA, which represents builders, developers and related industries, believes the cost of affordable housing should be spread throughout the community as a whole, that impact fees and inclusionary zoning are counterproductive and workforce housing mandates are unfair to builders and developers. Ms. Curatolo, a member of the Community Housing Plan Stakeholders Committee, praises the suggestions presented by the ULI and her committee peers. I feel there are creative ideas being developed by this group and that our commissioners are open to creative ideas where they werent in the past. Those discussions never went anywhere. Mr. Dalby cautions major changes will take years to develop and implement. Were putting ourselves in the position where we can help address these issues for all citizens of the county. Were building community. Those who interact daily with some of Collier Countys lowest wage earners see the greatest need for affordable housing to become reality. We work with the hungry, homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless, Ms. Welton says. Theres not the huge gap it used to be. Senior citizens and single moms are at the greatest risk for homelessness. People dont realize how many people come through our shelters. Mr. Spencer of the North Collier Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics Local 2297 lives the Naples condo his wife owned prior to their marriage. Its painful to see how expensive it is to live in Naples and how far behind the curve we are, he says. Im grateful the committee is doing this.

OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY, JULY 2 1-4 P.M.Two months in, a look at turtle nesting season BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comIts turtle time in Southwest Florida and elsewhere. Every night through August, female loggerheads and the occasional green turtle will lumber their way up our sandy shores to deposit a veritable treasure trove of leathery eggs. While 2017 was a boom year for nests here and across Florida, this year isnt turning out to be too shabby in comparison. As of June 26, Collier County counted 983 nests on its beaches, compared to 1,070 at the same time in 2016. Vanderbilt Beach currently has the highest count at 133 nests. The numbers this year are a little bit below last year, but they still have time to nest, said Maura Krauss, Collier Countys principal environmental specialist. Ms. Krauss is responsible for counting nests seven days a week on all county beaches. She works with Dave Addison of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida to manage city of Naples beaches from Gordon Pass to Doctors Pass. Mr. Addison, a senior biologist, manages nest counts on Keewaydin Island. Nesting season in Florida is May 1 through Nov. 1. Theyre merrily nesting away on Keewaydin Beach, Mr. Addison said. Were having a good year, but you never know until its over a storm could wash it all away. The Conservancys modest stretch of beach on Keewaydin doesnt have nearly the traffic Colliers beaches do, which mean turtles nesting on the island might be able to avoid a current danger Ms. Krauss has witnessed elsewhere in her territory with increasing frequency. Were seeing a lot of people using cell phone flashlights looking for turtles, she said Its becoming an increasing problem, as the light distracts the nesting turtle. She urges people to stand back, give the turtles plenty of room and leave them alone. Coastal communities throughout the state have committed to preserving the endangered reptiles nesting season by highly regulating light pollution on beaches which disorients mothers and hatchlings alike and organizing beach clean-ups to prevent the turtles from ingesting and choking on litter. However, theres no accounting for new nesters who are easily confused. Ms. Krauss said one turtle crawled up the beach at Park Shore at 10:15 a.m., probably nesting for the first time. Local monitoring programs survey the beaches to count and cage nests to protect them from raccoons and other predators. Thanks to sustained conservation efforts over the last 35 years, the Conservancy has reproductive histories of some turtles that go back 20 years. If you find a dead or injured sea turtle, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 888-404-3922. If you witness a situation that would interfere with a turtle nesting, such as someone harassing a nesting mother, call 888-3307370.

Doors open and flower registration begins at 6:30 p.m., flower judging is at 7:10 p.m. and the program starts at 7:45 p.m. The program will feature presentations by 2017 recipients of NOS internships, Adam Herdman and Conner Melton, and their Illinois College professor, L.W. Zettler, about their research on native orchids. In addition, David Riera, Florida International University student and NOS 2017 intern, will talk about his study of cryopreservation of native orchid seeds and pollen. This month marks the seventh year that NOS interns from Illinois College have collected data and accomplished fieldwork necessary to help preserve native Southwest Florida orchids with special attention to the famous ghost orchid. NOS funds trips to and from Illinois for the students and provides a stipend while they live and work at Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to the students, NOS also has funded Ernesto Mujica, Cubas ghost orchid specialist, for his trips to Southwest Florida to work with the students. When the data collection began, only 11 ghost orchid locations on the refuge had been documented by GPS. In 2015, about 80 new locations were identified, and in 2016, more than 100 additional plants joined the data. NOS meetings are open to the public. Admission is free. Membership information will be available at the meeting. For more information, visit www.NaplesOrchidSociety.org.

However, Keri Young of Oklahoma gave birth in April for a different purpose. After learning while pregnant that her baby would not long survive after birth (because of anencephaly), she nonetheless carried it to term just to harvest organs for unspecified people who might need them (though the grieving Keri and husband Royce admit that some might judge their motive harshly). In some parts of traditional Japanese society, it remains not uncommon for someone to feel the need to rent friends. For example, relatives at a funeral bear grief better if they realize the many friends the deceased had. Or, a working man or woman may rent a sweetheart just to help deflect parental pressure to marry. In northern China, in April, a man was arrested for renting family and friends to populate his side of the aisle at his wedding. Apparently, there were conflicts plaguing each family, and police were investigating, but the groom surely worsened the plan by not coaching the actors on his personal details, thus making interfamily small-talk especially awkward. Then there are lawsuits(1) David Waugaman, 57, fell off a barstool last year and needed surgery, and of course he is suing the tavern at Ziggys Hotel in Youngwood, Pa., for continuing to serve him before he fell. Wrote Waugaman, Youre not supposed to feed people so much booze. (2) Robert Bratton filed a lawsuit recently in Columbia, Mo., against the Hershey chocolate company because there was too much empty space in his grocery-store box of Reeses Pieces, which he thought was deceptive (even though the correct number of Pieces was printed on the label). In May, federal judge Nanette Laughrey ruled that Brattons case could continue for the jury to decide. (3) Some minority students organizations, commenting on the planned extensive renovation of the University of Michigans student union building, recommended ditching the current interiors elegant wood paneling because it gives off an imposing, masculine feeling that makes them seem marginalized. A spokesperson for the students, attempting to soothe the controversy, said the marginalization was more based on the buildings quiet nature. (4) In Australia, Chanels just-introduced luxury wood-and-resin boomerang (selling for the equivalent of about $1,415) came under fire from aboriginal groups for cultural appropriation. (Hermes had issued its own luxury boomerang in 2013.)Passing bulletsA man shot himself but had the bullet pass through him and hit a bystander (except this time it was fatal to the bystander). Victor Sibson, 21, was charged in Anchorage, Alaska, in May with killing his girlfriend even though he had aimed at his own head. Investigators were persuaded that it was a genuine attempt, though he survived, but in critical condition. Animals with affordable health careIn April, the annual report of the Association of British Insurers on its members policies for pet owners noted that among the claims paid were those for a bearded dragon with an abscess, an anorexic Burmese python, a cocker spaniel that swallowed a turkey baster, a cockatoo with respiratory problems, and even a lethargic house cat (which nonetheless cost the equivalent of $470 to treat).Legal experts everywhereAmerican sovereigns litter courtrooms with their self-indulgent misreadings of history and the Constitution (misreadings that, coincidentally, happen to favor them with free passes on arrests and tax-paying), but now, the UKs Exeter Crown Court has experienced Mark Angell, 41, who said in May that he simply could not step into the courtroom dock to state a plea concerning possession of cannabis because he would thus be submitting to maritime law, which he could not legally do on dry land. Judge: Dont talk nonsense. Get in the dock. Angell was ordered to trial. Before leaving, he gave the judge a bill for his detention: the equivalent of $2.5 million.Third-world religionIn March, Zimbabwean pastor Paul Sanyangore of Victory World International Ministries was captured on video during a sermon telephoning God. Clutching a phone to his ear, he yelled, Hello, is this heaven? I have a woman here, what do you have to say about her? (Her two children, one epileptic, the other asthmatic, are then confusingly described by heaven as being changed, and Paul ended the call to resounding cheers from the congregation.)The classic middle nameArrested recently and awaiting trial for murder: Boe Wayne Adams (Wichita, Kan., May); Jason Vann Wayne Godfrey (Sanford, N.C., August); Earl Wayne Humphries (Dallas, May); Michael Wayne Pennington Jr. (Tazewell, Va., May).

More than 30 Collier County Sheriffs Office deputies and firefighters had flicked their lights and sirens on for the first Goodnight Lights event at the hospital, bringing cheer to kids stuck in the hospital around the holidays. Dazed by medication and a sudden condition that caused confusion and fatigue, Burton broke down in tears. She asked her mother Elyse Burton to wave over a nearby deputy who was handing out gifts. Cpl. Sherry Rego gave her a stuffed brown bear wearing a little blue sweater. Lauren, a Community School of Naples student, hugged Cpl. Rego and cried some more. This is my best day, she said over and over, a quote that stuck in the minds of both Cpl. Rego and Sgt. Glen Tatum, who helped organize Goodnight Lights. It was a really difficult time, Elyse Burton said, recalling the morning that sent her daughter to the hospital and marked the beginning of a recovery process that lasted well into February. On June 21, Lauren delivered several dozen cookies she baked to thank to the deputies who brightened her day during one of the roughest periods of her life. It was so special being there and seeing all the lights go on, she recalled about the night in the hospital. She said she still keeps the teddy bear next to her bed. You touched everybodys heart that day, Cpl. Rego told her. Deputies gathered at the District 4 substation in Golden Gate Estates to meet with Lauren and receive her thankyou sweets. She looked unrecognizable compared to their December visit when Elyse Burton said her daughter suffered from facial paralysis and symptoms similar to that of a stroke victim. At age 12, Lauren was diagnosed with a lifelong condition known as Chiari Malformation, a structural problem with the brain and spinal cord that affects balance, among other things. Shes had brain surgery and other treatments to lessen the effects, which include seizures. Then one day last December, she woke up and didnt feel well. At NCH North and later at Joe Dimaggio Childrens Hospital in Hollywood, Fla., she would learn she had a second condition called PoTS, postural tachycardia syndrome, which causes problems with memory, extreme fatigue, dizziness and sudden confusion. It was difficult to see as a parent, Elyse Burton said. So it was great to see her tear up with the bear. Lauren brought a thank-you note to the deputies who showed up for the event and the ones who continued to check on her during her recovery in the following months as she finished high school online and got to walk the stage for graduation this spring. Many thanks for the kindness you showed me while I was in the hospital and for keeping the community safe every day, she wrote. Thank you to your families as well for supporting you in such an important job. Lauren plans to attend Florida Gulf Coast University part-time this fall, where she hopes to major in pre-law and later attend law school. Shes also hoping to secure a service dog that could alert her to seizures and help her recover when she falls or becomes disoriented. Were proud of you, Lauren, Sgt. Tatum told her during their meeting last week. Youre so brave. Keep smiling.

Previous studies have suggested that mothers get short-term health benefits from breastfeeding, such as weight loss and lower cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose levels after pregnancy. However, the long-term effects of breastfeeding on the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases in mothers are unclear. A new study in China found that women who breastfed their babies had about a 10 percent lower risk of developing heart disease or stroke. Researchers from the University of Oxford, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking University analyzed data from 289,573 Chinese women (average age 51) participating in the China Kadoorie Biobank study who provided detailed information about their reproductive history and other lifestyle factors. Nearly all were mothers and none had cardiovascular disease when they enrolled in the study. After eight years of follow-up, there were 16,671 cases of coronary heart disease, which includes heart attacks, and 23,983 stroke cases. Researchers observed that: Compared to women who had never breastfed, mothers who breastfed their babies had a 9 percent lower risk of heart disease and an 8 percent lower risk of stroke. Among mothers who breastfed each of their babies for two years or more, heart disease risk was 18 percent lower and stroke risk was 17 percent lower than among mothers who never breastfed. Each additional six months of breastfeeding per baby was associated with a 4 percent lower risk of heart disease and a 3 percent lower risk of stroke. The researchers considered a range of risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and physical activity that could have biased results. Although we cannot establish the causal effects, the health benefits to the mother from breastfeeding may be explained by a faster reset of the mothers metabolism after pregnancy, study co-author Sanne Peters, Ph.D., said. Pregnancy changes a womans metabolism dramatically as she stores fat to provide the energy necessary for her babys growth and for breastfeeding once the baby is born. Breastfeeding could eliminate the stored fat faster and more completely. Ms. Sanne is a research fellow at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. The study noted that women who breastfeed might be more likely to engage in other beneficial health behaviors that lower their risk of cardiovascular disease compared to women who do not breastfeed. Because this study was observational, relying on information provided by the mothers about their breastfeeding histories, it does not prove cause and effect. Results from observational studies such as this one must be confirmed by a different type of study that can prove that a behavior results in an outcome. Compared to women in China, breastfeeding duration is typically shorter among women in the United States. Ninety-seven percent of the women in this study breastfed each of their babies for an average of 12 months, compared to 30 percent of U.S. mothers in 2016, according to the World Health Organization. However, the U.S. Nurses Health Study found only women with a lifetime duration of breastfeeding of 2 years or more had a significantly lower risk of coronary heart disease than those who never breastfed. The findings should encourage more widespread breastfeeding for the benefit of the mother as well as the child, said Zhengming Chen, D.Phil., senior study author and professor of epidemiology at the University of Oxford. The study provides support for the World Health Organizations recommendation that mothers should breastfeed their babies exclusively for their first six months of life. The American Heart Association suggests breastfeeding for 12 months if possible.

Providing Quality Healthcare for All Since 1977 PET TALESFear-free Fourth? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhat is your pets least favorite holiday? If our dogs and cats could express an opinion, its likely they would choose the Fourth of July. While we associate it with picnics and parades, our pets are often fearful of the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air. Some pets enjoy watching fireworks, while others run outdoors and figuratively shake their fist and yell bad words at the pyrotechnics. But pets who are fearful of fireworks can respond with full-blown panic, jumping through windows or over fences in a frenzied attempt to escape the scary sounds. Others whine or moan, tremble uncontrollably or run and hide in as small an area as possible. Cats typically head beneath the bed, while dogs may curl up inside a dark closet. Before she lost enough of her hearing that she no longer minded, my beagle mix became a shaking, drooling mess every year, including one night when she tried to climb into the refrigerator, says Eliza Rubenstein of Costa Mesa, Calif. Our annual patriotic tradition involved alprazolam and three hours of driving around. A pets fireworks phobia can take away enjoyment of Independence Day for everyone in the family. For a dog or, rarely, cat whose reaction to fireworks rises to the level of abject fear and panic, the following tips can help them cope. Go for a ride. As Rubenstein discovered, being inside a car seems to help insulate dogs from the noise. Drive to an area away from the fireworks if possible. Get out of town. Susan Rosenau of Bellingham, Wash., lives with two French bulldogs whose reaction to fireworks is complete panic. Were planning a trip to Canada for the Fourth of July this year just to avoid them, she says. You might not be able to leave the country, but you may be able to send your pet to stay with a relative or friend who lives in an area where fireworks are uncommon. A boarding kennel or pet sitter away from fireworks is another option. Keep pets indoors. Provide a hiding place that will prevent your pet from being exposed to the brightly lit sky and dampen the sound. This may be a covered crate in a room with the curtains drawn, a closet or a bathroom with no windows. Some pets feel safe in the bathtub. Sally Bahners cat, Mollie, heads for the linen closet or the vanity in the bathroom. Give your pet a favorite toy to add to his comfort level. Our greyhound mix really liked to be inside and with his stuffed hedgehog on his bed, says Melissa Frieze Karolak of Cleveland. I think he taught our terrier that the best place to be when loud noises happen is inside. Sometimes wearing a snug-fitting shirt or cape offers a feeling of security to a dog or cat. You can also find specially made earmuffs and eye shades to help limit a pets exposure to sound and light. Fearful dogs may benefit from a synthetic pheromone called Adaptil, which mimics the sebaceous gland secretions given off by mother dogs as they nurse. Its thought to have a calming effect. A similar product called Feliway is available for cats. If your dogs fear of fireworks is so severe that he cant function, harms himself or is destructive in his attempts to escape, talk to your veterinarian about medication that may help. Be sure you understand how to use it. Generally, its necessary to give medication before fireworks begin. If you wait, it will be less effective. Read instructions carefully to make sure you administer medication correctly. You may also want to ask for a referral to a board-certified veterinary behaviorist. To help your pet feel more comfortable with fireworks noise, give frequent handouts of special treats that he never gets at any other time, such as meatballs, deli turkey or bits of cheese.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member THE DIVA DIARIESWho says every birthday should be a big deal?Is it wrong to boycott your own birthday? Yet another birthday is creeping up on me, and Im just not into it anymore. Dont get me wrong. As my uncle used to say, Im glad Im on the right side of the dirt and all, but I just think there should be a cap on how one celebrates ones birthday after the age of, say, 21. Im not a birthday scrooge, truly. I just think that not EVERY birthday calls for a huge party complete with cake and ice cream unless of course, youre 5. Then again, when friends excitedly ask me, as they have been doing recently, What are we doing for your birthday? and I turn on them like a mean (old) rattlesnake and hiss, Nothing! only to watch them back off and look at me like Ive suddenly become possessed by the birthday demon, I feel like a jerk. Its just that I think we get to a point where only milestone birthdays call for full-on birthday treatment. I mean, when youre a kid and one little piece of cake doesnt make you gain four pounds, there should be a party every single year, of course. And the more presents and games and noisemakers, the better. Then theres the 21st birthday, when being of legal age to drink way too much and suffer from a hangover is certainly an excellent cause for celebration. In my experience, though, birthdays started to lose their luster after 21. My gifts got smaller, I received fewer cards and even my dear grandmother, who always sent me $50, started tucking just $25 inside the card. It wasnt the money, it was more the realization that becoming an adult meant not only having to pay bills, it also meant that birthdays werent going to be as big a deal as they used to be. After 21, the next big milestone is 40. I think 40th birthday celebrations are pretty much the opposite of 21st birthday bashes. It when you basically acknowledge the fact that youll never be able to drink so much as a glass of wine for the rest of your life without having a headache later, and as far as cake goes, dont even think about it. The day you turn 40, you throw caution to the wind and party like a rock star because the party ship is starting to sail. Trust me when I tell you that Ive been to some amazing 40th birthday parties and that Im grateful that I have photos from my own because my memory is a little sketchy from that particular soiree. Another milestone birthday, but typically not as raucous as others, is the big 5-0. This one deserves recognition, Champagne and if not cake, at least chocolates. By this time in our lives, weve been to a few funerals of folks our age and its important to raise a glass to the fact that we can still raise a glass. Its no milestone, but my birthday is here whether I like it or not. Luckily, a dear friend who celebrated her nonmilestone birthday last week by getting a massage has suggested we spend my birthday afternoon at an animal shelter playing with kittens because theres nothing like cute kitties to lift your spirits and then have cocktails to toast the fact that itll be a good long while until I have to face another milestone. Heres to kittens and cocktails! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week. T b a a s g stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

Retaining the visual connection to an American hero has been so successful that it sustains an entire brand. It portrays a ruggedness that can even make a milk run look like an adventure. But while the appearance is old fashioned, those who havent checked out a Wrangler in a while might be in for a surprise. The first CJs (Civilian Jeeps) were low on creature comforts, and the option list was mostly agricultural equipment. Decades later, it was still a rudimentary 4x4 with rear seats being one of the pricier add-ons. But during this progression, a select group of people started embracing a lifestyle that the goanywhere CJs provided. As the appeal of being a weekend warrior has spread further into the mainstream, Jeep has been adapting their fundamental 4x4 to carry more creature comforts. This cozy evolution has led to an off-roader like the one seen here. The Wrangler Unlimited offers a longer wheelbase so it can fit four full doors, and everything is nicely colorcoordinated. But it also has a beefy first impression that proves its ready to join its predecessors on the muddy trail. In fact, the latest generations largest difference is how much a Jeep can be a fully enclosed machine. There are still soft tops and low cut doors for the adventurers who like to be one with nature, but a fully loaded version like our range-topping Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes standard with full doors that feature power windows and locks. Plus, the fiberglass roof can now be body-colored to make this look like it was born to be an enclosed SUV. Its still a true Jeep, and so it only takes two wrenches, 14 bolts, two spindles, and the removal of seven components to become a full convertible. But this conversion takes a muscular set of helping hands, and no one will need a day at the gym once the task is done. Inside there is a similar feeling of robust design with concessions for added comfort. Besides options like power windows and locks, the Wrangler can be outfitted with a strong air conditioner, a water-resistance subwoofer stereo, and satellite navigation. These seem like great options no matter if its a trip through the Everglades or Main Street. The only complaint is that they feel like a generation behind the mainstream. A basic two-door Wrangler starts around $25K, and a four-door Unlimited Rubicon Recon like our test vehicle is over $44K. For that kind of money, the standard SUV shopper often expects automatic climate control, instead of the analog A/C controls. And the navigation system could have a larger and crisper screen. Then again, there are many of us who are just impressed with such modern conveniences available in an icon that once was proud for offering a heater. Thus, the perception of the Wranglers interior features is the true telltale dividing line of people who are ready to join the Jeep lifestyle. For those newly minted weekend warriors, the best Jeep features are actually underneath the skin. For example, the upper level trims offer a sway bar for the front suspension that can be disconnected just by touching a button next to the speedometer. What this means in the real world is a vehicle that feels steady on the school drop off runs, but it also has the ability to release the suspension for boulder-clearing levels of travel. All levels of the Wranglers are quite capable right out of the box. Its thanks to a 4x4 drivetrain that features a twospeed transfer case, sturdy axles, and good ground clearance all as standard.Besides off-road prowess, the other great Jeep tradition is personalization. No matter if its Mopar accessories direct from the dealership, or aftermarket components out of the dozens of mail order catalogues/websites, the enduring appeal of the Wrangler is being able to make it your own. Living this Jeep lifestyle has always been a camaraderie of individual spirts rallying around a central theme of people who love a good 4x4. The difference today is the club members are a lot more comfortable than they used to be. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Are your employees or co-workers stressed to the max, overly competitive and habitually secretive? Or are people open, communicative, helpful and friendly? Author Susan Mangiero says too many workplaces are missing the kindness factor, and its more damaging than you might realize. Why? Because kindness is integral to employee engagement and cultures of engagement are integral to high-performance organizations. Doing business revolves around relationships, says Ms. Mangiero, author of The Big Squeeze: Hugs & Inspirations for Every Grown-Up Who Loves Teddy Bears.Without strong, positive relationships, people cant work together productively, she adds. They cant communicate well. They cant innovate. And positive relationships cannot flourish in the absence of kindness. When kindness is not present, everyone in the company detaches, stops communicating and loses trust. Teamwork suffers. Morale drops. Productivity falls. Absenteeism and turnover rates rise. And yes, customer satisfaction plummets and eventually, customers leave. In todays high-stakes, fast-paced business climate, its easy to focus on survival at all costs (one of those costs being positive relationships). But Ms. Mangiero says the most hard-driven workers need to remember to infuse kindness into their daily interactions, not only with clients (obviously), but with each other as well. She says kindness is the element that makes organizations great places to work and its also the secret sauce that helps companies thrive. The kindness equals success principle applies to all career paths even those in conventionally un-nurturing industries. Ms. Mangiero is well qualified to speak to this subject. She made her mark in financial services and now consults to companies in that hard-charging indus-SEE KINDNESS, A26 SEE MEETINGS, A24 Kind workplacesMaking nice to colleagues and clients part of the job Doing business revolves around relationships ...

Susan Mangiero, author of The Big Squeeze: Hugs & Inspirations for Every Grown-Up Who Loves Teddy BearsNAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 | A23WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BUSINESS FROM THE TOPAtilus co-founder relishes growth and hurdles BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe last 12 years have been a period of growth and discovery for Zach Katkin, both personally and professionally. Mr. Katkin, 32, is the co-founder, president and CEO of Atilus, a Bonita Springsbased digital design and online marketing company that, not coincidentally, began operations 12 years ago. The boutique firm provides digital consulting, web design, applications, internet marketing and website hosting.It started with a staff of two: Mr. Katkin and his partner, Harry Casimir, and just two major clients. The base of operations was Mr. Casimirs home. Today, Atilus occupies space in Constitution Plaza, at the corner of Bonita Beach Road and Old 41 Road, and has a staff of nine that serves 400 clients across the country. Atilus recently launched a new website for the Collier Economic Development Organization to assist businesses relocating to the county. The organization is a collaboration between the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and Collier Countys Office of Business and Economic Development. Other local clients include Babcock Ranch, the Kitson & Co. community being developed northeast of Fort Myers, the Bonita Springs Estero Economic Development Council and Florida Repertory Theatre. It feels really good that everything is going really well, said Mr. Katkin. Thereve been some hurdles. We grew very quickly, but in 2007, when the boom went bust, we took a hit and scaled down. Over the last couple years, weve really solidified our process and hopefully made a name for ourselves.He attributes much of the credit for Atilus ascension to its web designers and developers, client services, marketing, sales and other staff members who, with SEE KATKIN, A24 KATKIN
the exception of one person, are all graduates of Florida Gulf Coast University.Weve been lucky and blessed to have fantastic people who want to learn and grow and want to be the best they can be and thats from the technical perspective to meeting with clients, he added.A graduate of Estero High School, Mr. Katkin earned a degree in liberal studies, with a concentration in web design, from FGCU in 2007. He and Mr. Casimir, a 2005 graduate with a degree in computer information services, met when they were enrolled in the same class at the university. They formed a friendship that became a professional relationship that utilizes their mix of creative and technical skills. Website construction, including copywriting, and digital marketing, with some web development on the side, were Mr. Katkins initial domains. Mr. Casimir handled programming and server maintenance and also served as the companys first president, which included responsibility for sales. That arrangement changed when lagging sales led Mr. Casimir to suggest the division of duties be altered slightly. One afternoon Harry said, Youre the president and youre handling all of our sales, Mr. Katkin said. I said, All right, whatever it takes. Today, Mr. Casimir oversees operations, database design/management and project management. Mr. Katkin oversees marketing, client projects and tweaks to the process Altilus uses for the life cycle of each project, something he refers to as the cascade effect. The cascade effect is basically, start to finish, for everything we do, he said. Its going back through from the initial contact, be it a phone call, Facebook, a referral or whatever and continually working through and monitoring that process, to some extent, to make it better. Keeping the client informed each step of the way is a key element of each project.Youre taking the client through this process, Mr. Katkin said. What does it look like from their perspective? And then you try to see into the future and communicate that future to the client: Heres what were seeing right now, heres what could happen, and if that happens heres what well do; just know that were going to stay in communication about that. Taking on the sales role in the companys early days and the necessity of meeting face-to-face with customers forced him to overcome the shyness that had been part of his youthful personality. I still get nervous with certain people, certain meetings, he said. With clients, I never know who this is person expecting. I still do some deep breathing exercises before those kinds of meetings. But its almost unbelievable how shy I was and what has happened. His career choices as a teen information technology and then web design would have allowed minimal contact with other people. But the inspiration provided by the professor of a business class he took at FGCU caused Mr. Katkin to broaden his thinking. I remember thinking back in 2003, 2004 that this was for me, being part of a small business, he said. And being able to be mentally flexible and spot problems, I knew that was for me. Now, did I think it would take this particular form? It almost happened so quickly that I didnt have a chance to think that. But I never in a million years imagined whats transpired and that Id be a part of it in the way I have. Mr. Katkin and Mr. Casimir, a native of Haiti and a U.S. Army veteran, have made community service a priority at Atilus. The company has created websites for nonprofits in Collier and Lee counties, and staff members have volunteered as a group at area soup kitchens. In addition, the duo created FGCUs Atilus Bitcoin Scholarship Fund in 2014. They pledged $25,000 to the scholarship, half of which is paid by Bitcoin, which is a digital currency. Its the first public Bitcoin Scholarship in the world, said Mr. Katkin. Every year, we keep adding to it. Its something Im proud of because I think Bitcoin is going to change the world. Interview with Zach KatkinBusiness mentors: My first real boss, Jim Nici, and Bud Stoddard. First job: Cleaning up construction sites after school and on weekends. Business words of wisdom: This is a big long game, so its important to be playing knowing the person you beat tomorrow might be in charge of a project youd like to get down the road. So be respectful, mindful. If you play looking for short-term gain at the cost of someone else, odds are youll end up with a poor reputation or in a bad place. Its a small world, literally, not just around here. It will come back eventually. Another really important thing is be a person of your word: If you say youre going to do something, remember it and do it.Favorite business book: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap ... and Others Dont by Jim Collins. Two things you look for when hiring: A desire to learn (often much more valuable than talent or experience) and the ability to communicate ideas and translate technical-esoteric ideas into meaningful language that clients/others can understand. Any job openings: Yes. Were hiring for an additional front-end development position, a digital marketing position and sales and marketing positions. Last time you had to fire someone and the reason: In all these years, weve really only had to let three or four people go. Many of the transitions we experienced were of our employees own volition perhaps a mutual respect where they and we understood things werent working out. Unfortunately though, it is one of the hardest things to do when you think about the impact it can have on a person, a family, etc., so is often made very late and its something Id like to get better at. To that effect, we had to let go of two members of our team a number of years ago after it was clear they had misrepresented their skills at a very fundamental level.

My business was transformed once I agreed to manufacture newfangled electrophotography machines that created images via powdered ink and static electricity. Many years later, my famous Brother Dominic TV commercials helped sell them. Many technologies, such as personal computers and Ethernet networking, were pioneered at my famous research center in Palo Alto, California.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Seth Klarman InsightsWarren Buffett isnt the only successful investor who offers us valuable insights. Meet Seth Klarman: Hes not a household name, but hes well respected in the investment community, recently managing some $30 billion in hedge fund money and having written the seminal book, Margin of Safety, thats out of print but can be found for hundreds of dollars online. How good an investor is he? Well, he has reportedly only lost money in three of the past 34 years, and his annual return from inception through 2015 is reportedly about 16 percent. Here are some words of wisdom from Mr. Klarman: Every security or asset is a buy at one price, a hold at a higher price and a sell at some still higher price. This is a great reminder that while it may be clear that a certain company is likely to prosper over many years, its stock isnt necessarily a good buy at all times. For best results, we should aim to buy stocks when they appear undervalued. We continue to adhere to a commonsense view of risk how much we can lose and the probability of losing it. While this perspective may seem over(ly) simplistic or even hopelessly outdated, we believe it provides a vital clarity about the true risks in investing. Many investors focus on the potential upside of an investment without sufficiently considering the possible downside. All companies face risks, and we need to consider them. If someone asked me to invest their money with the goal of turning a quick profit over the next six to 12 months, Id have no idea how. This emphasizes how impossible it is to know what any given stock or the entire market will do over the short term which is why we should keep any shortterm money out of the stock market. Longterm investments in great companies or in the overall market, on the other hand, are likely to increase in value. Never stop reading. Indeed its what the smartest investors do. Timmberr!I invested about $40,000 in teak trees through a Latin American timber company, hoping that the long-term gains would help with college costs for my grandkids. The company had a nice website and great reviews, and it offered to let you visit the farms and your personal trees. The company would care for the trees, including replacing any new trees that died in the first year, then thin the trees and finally harvest and sell the wood when the trees were large enough. I never got any reports of thinning, and some trees were 20 years old when I bought them. Eventually, I learned online that the owner had died, his wife had cancer and the workers werent being paid. The Costa Rican government seized everything, as the taxes hadnt been paid, and the Better Business Bureau ranking turned into an F. I should have stuck to stocks and mutual funds or (shudder) just left the money in a bank account. G., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. You fell for a not-uncommon scam, where investors are required to invest large sums and are promised hefty guaranteed returns. Always be wary of any guaranteed returns especially big ones. Stocks can indeed be much safer, especially if theyre tied to established and growing profitable companies. Remember that any investment that sounds too good to be true probably is. Constructing ProfitsIf youre looking for a strong, sustainable dividend-paying stock that will keep the payout checks coming for the next few decades, you cant do much better than Lowes (NYSE: LOW). The home-improvement retail chain has increased its dividend payouts without fail in each of the last 54 years. Lowes annual payouts have more than doubled over the last four years and recently yielded 2.1 percent. The best part? Lowes is likely to keep the dividend growth flowing for many years. This stock has ridden the housing recovery wave to heights unimaginable in the depths of the Great Recession. Despite a recent decline, shares have roughly tripled in value, overall, over the past five years. Lowes relatively simple retail business is likely to stay relevant as long as people need houses to live in and maintain. Better still, unlike many others retailers, its business appears to be Amazon-resistant. While Home Depot has focused on serving building contractors and professionals, Lowes has more aggressively courted homeowners. In the robust housing market weve enjoyed, that has put Home Depot ahead, but Lowes is looking to remedy that shortfall, in part by buying some wholesale retailers. With housing prices and mortgage rates rising, fewer people might want to buy and more might want to repair and renovate which could serve Lowes well. (The Motley Fool has recommended Lowes and Home Depot.) I trace my roots back to 1912, when two aircraft companies were formed that would eventually form me (in 1995). One founder was encouraged by Orville Wright. My early seaplanes broke speed and distance records. Today, based in Maryland, Im a global aerospace giant, employing about 97,000 people. I rake in nearly $48 billion annually and have an order backlog topping $90 billion. Most of my sales are to the U.S. military and government agencies. I own Sikorsky, and I produce helicopters, satellites, missiles, defense systems and more. A stinky mammal has been part of my story. Who am I? (Answer: Lockheed Martin) Seeking CatalystsQWhen someone refers to a companys catalysts, what is she talking about? B.G., Shenandoah, IowaAShes referring to things that could cause a stocks value to change. Savvy investors aim to invest in healthy and growing companies whose stocks seem to be undervalued, because those stock prices can be expected to eventually approach (or exceed) their fair values. But when and why will the stock prices rise? It will often be due to positive catalysts. Thus, when studying a company, try to identify positive catalysts, which could be a strong earnings report, an expected acquisition, the launch of a new product, new legislation, new contracts, a legal victory, a new technology, a housing boom or the end of a recession, among other possibilities. A catalyst for a biotechnology company could be Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of a promising new drug. There are negative catalysts, too, of course, that could hurt a companys progress. ***QWhere can I look up historical price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios online? H.L., Rutland, VermontAA P/E ratio can give you a rough idea of how overvalued or undervalued a stock might be especially when you compare it to the companys average P/E ratio in recent years. A bunch of websites offer current and historical P/E ratios.For example, click over to morningstar.com and enter a companys ticker symbol up top in the Quote box. That will take you to a page offering lots of data on it. Click on Valuation, and youll be shown not only the current P/E ratio (as well as other valuation-related measures) but also the five-year average P/E. Theres even a Forward P/E, based on expected earnings over the coming year. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ON THE MOVE try on their relationship-building skills. Just know that you cant turn on kindness at will, and you certainly cant fake it. To develop your nurturing muscles the ones that will make you relatable in a world yearning for connection you need to make being kind a part of your daily life in and out of the workplace. Here are Ms. Mangieros 10 best tips for making genuine kindness a habit 1. First, practice being kind to yourself If you dont know how to nurture yourself, its hard to nurture others, especially your co-workers and clients. Ms. Mangiero says practicing self-care is the best way to learn kindness and establish that you deserve kindness too. She suggests you do something kind for yourself (enjoy a cup of tea, take a short break, etc.) every day. And stop being so hard on yourself. Forgiving yourself is an important component of kindness, she adds. 2. Make time to play in order to balance out the hard work You might be working aggressively for a promotion or simply grinding away at an endless list of work projects. Either way, dont let your life be all work and no play. Whether you enjoy hiking, art, community theater or club sports, make time for it. When your life is all about work, its impossible to stay balanced, she says. 3. Volunteer for a good cause Finding a way to help others gets you in touch with your humanity and keeps you humble and kind. Every city has multiple opportunities to volunteer, so find a cause that resonates with you. Perhaps your employer sponsors activities that you can do with your colleagues. 4. Stay in touch with friends, family Dont get so wrapped up in the rat race that you forget about your tribe, Ms. Mangiero warns. Stay close to your cherished family members and make time for your friends. Visit your favorite people regularly. Meet for coffee or dinner to catch up. 5. Celebrate the WOW! in the lives of friends and co-workers Nurturing others means showing that you care when good things happen in their lives. Take a moment to applaud and praise others accomplishments instead of breezing right past them. Congratulate your colleague on her promotion, even if youre working thanklessly at your job, Ms. Mangiero says. One day youll appreciate it when someone makes a big deal out of your accomplishments. The same goes for your friends, she adds. 6. Practice your manners Small niceties like hello, please and thank you, holding doors for people and asking how others are doing should not vanish when tensions are high. In the hard-charging corporate world, however, manners can take a back seat when deals and deadlines are involved. Keep your work in perspective and remember that rude behavior makes a stronger impression than kindness, but not in a good way. Remember to be courteous to individuals in different jobs and at different levels, not just the boss. 7. Go out of your way to make shy, left-out or misunderstood people feel comfortable In life and at work, theres going to be an in-crowd and those who dont quite belong just like in school. Make it your duty to be kind and welcoming to those in your office who may feel excluded from the group, Ms. Mangiero says. Outsiders hurt when they are not readily accepted, and it even happens in the workplace. So be sure to reach out and be friendly to those who need a little help socially. You will be doing whats right and setting a good example. You also might make a new friend. 8. Send thank-you notes (the penand-paper kind) Its good etiquette to send a thank-you note when anyone a client, supervisor, co-worker goes above and beyond for you. Get into the habit of writing old-fashioned thankyou notes instead of firing off an email or sending a text. This is also a great practice for organizational leaders to embrace. In the professional world, a nonvirtual thank-you note sets you apart from others, Ms. Mangiero says. Its a nearly effortless and thoughtful gesture that goes a long way. And you never know who might remember your politeness; a gracious thank-you could help you win a new client or advance to a higher position. 9. Listen more than you talk No matter how successful you are, remember that you really dont know it all (and thats okay). Be open to the wisdom of others. Ms. Mangiero points out that learning is a lifetime process and that listening to those in the know can freshen our perspectives and expand our horizons. When I commit to really hearing what others say, I learn a lot and feel so much more connected to them, she says. Others appreciate the courtesy of being given a chance to express themselves. Its a way of showing respect and empathy when we are willing to lend an ear to our colleagues and our loved ones. In business, its also a way of distinguishing ourselves from the competitors who dont embrace the importance of letting someone else talk, she adds. In a hurried world, the lost art of careful listening is a good skill to develop. 10. Be a shoulder to cry on When someone in your life is hurting and needs comfort (or someone to vent to) and you think you can help, be willing to engage and support them. Yes, it can be uncomfortable and inconvenient to deal with another persons troubles on top of your own, but true kindness often requires this kind of sacrifice. Dont disconnect when a friend or work associate is upset and wants to talk about it with you, Ms. Mangiero says. Really taking the time to be present will make them feel heard and supported which is crucial to building trust. If you there-there them and walk away, you might close the door to a deeper relationship. But also know that being appropriately kind is not the same as being a pushover, she adds. To the contrary, being kind is a show of strength. Genuine kindness is a state of being, Ms. Mangiero concludes. Its not something you do just to get what you want in the moment. Throughout your professional journey, commit to being kind to everyone you encounter along the way, and you will reap the many rewards that come from caring for and connecting with others. Kindness counts. KINDNESSFrom page 23 MANGIERO SCHWINN WHEELER MORAME KOLE

Additionally, the average homeowner gained about $13,400 in equity between the first quarter of last year and the first quarter of this year. In Q1 2017, the total number of mortgaged residential properties with negative equity decreased 3 percent from Q4 2016 to 3.1 million homes, or 6.1 percent of all mortgaged properties. Compared to Q1 2016, negative equity decreased 24 percent from 4.1 million homes, or 8.1 percent of all mortgaged properties. One million borrowers achieved positive equity over the last year, which means mortgage risk continues to steadily decline as a result of increasing home prices, said Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. Pockets of concern remain with markets including Miami, Las Vegas and Chicago, which are the top three for negative equity among large metros, with each recording a negative equity share at least twice or more the national average, he added. Negative equity, often referred to as being underwater or upside down, applies to borrowers who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. Negative equity can occur because of a decline in home value, an increase in mortgage debt or both. Negative equity peaked at 26 percent of mortgaged residential properties in Q4 2009 based on CoreLogic equity data analysis, which began in Q3 2009. The national aggregate value of negative equity was approximately $283 billion at the end of Q1 2017, down quarter over quarter by approximately $2.6 billion, or 0.9 percent, from $285.5 billion in Q4 2016 and down year over year by approximately $21.5 billion, or 7.1 percent, from $304.5 billion in Q1 2016. Homeowner equity increased by over $750 billion during the last year, the largest increase since mid-2014, With incomparable 360-degree views along Gulf Shore Boulevard North, this is the first opportunity for purchase of one of the most prized penthouse residences in the Enclave at Park Shore, where each of the 28 residences occupies an entire floor.

On average, homeowner equity increased about $13,400 from Q1 2016 to Q1 2017 (for mortgaged properties). Washington had the highest year-overyear average increase at $37,900, while Alaska experienced a small decline. Nevada had the highest percentage of homes with negative equity at 12.4 percent, followed by Florida (11.1 percent), Illinois (10.5 percent), New Jersey (10.2 percent) and Connecticut (9.9 percent). These top five states combined account for 32.6 percent of outstanding mortgages in the U.S. Of the 10 largest metropolitan areas by population, San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco, Calif., had the highest percentage of mortgaged properties in a positive equity position at 99.4 percent, followed by DenverAurora-Lakewood, Colo.

If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and fourbedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet caf, a gifts and sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, stated Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated November completion of the first residential tower, which is 90 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2 earlier this year, said Lodge. As of late June, the number of contracted residences in our second tower exceeded the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic Gulf views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

B16 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYOnly two residences remain in Phase II at Naples SquareJust one completed Phase II Denison residence priced at $1,088,921 and one completed Phase II Franklin residence priced at $1,425,422 remain available for purchase and immediate move-in at Naples Square. Naples Square is being developed by The Ronto Group at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The communitys walkable lifestyle and availability of one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces have transformed the way people live in downtown. Ronto has announced plans for the Shoppes at Naples Square are actively being developed. The project will be a combination of retail and restaurant space that will be developed on the eastern edge of the Naples Square site. Ronto anticipates retail openings in 2019. In addition, Gulfshore Playhouse is poised to close on its purchase of a three-acre tract within Naples Square in mid-August and is developing plans for the construction of a 56,000-square feet complex that will include two theaters and an education wing. The complex will serve as an ideal anchor for the Shoppes at Naples Square. The Phase II Denison floor plan offers a total of 2,554 square feet of living space, including 2,264 square feet under air and a 290 square feet balcony. The plan features three bedrooms, a den, three baths, a family room and dining room, an island kitchen with counter height bar seating, and a wraparound balcony accessed from the family room, dining room, and one of the guest bedrooms. The owners suite includes a bedroom with a private balcony, walk-in closets, and a bath with separate vanities, a soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower, and a separate water closet. Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors, has created a modern coastal look for the furnished Phase II Denison model, one of three Phase II models now open for viewing. To create a casual, coastal modern feeling, Gaddis used a palette of white and soft gray accented with icy blue and pale salmon. Streamlined furniture designs, airy window treatments, and doses of polished gold create a comfortable ambiance. The Denisons entry foyer presents a rectangular ceiling detail of white painted tongue-in-groove panels. White wood barn doors open to the den, a flexible space with a desk, a media wall for relaxing, and a linen sofa bed. The ceiling design features a modern loft look with open truss details. Warm browntoned wood flooring extends from the entry and den into the open great room. The kitchens all-white palette features Shaker style cabinetry with polished gold hardware. The countertops are classic pale gray and white Calcutta marble that waterfalls to the floor. Floating open wood shelving flanks the cooktop and range hood. The dining room features a liveedge wooden table in a smoked gray oak finish floating above a cast iron bronze base. Upholstered host and hostess chairs are joined by clipped back side chairs. With a terrace overlooking the urban landscape, the great room features a coffered ceiling to add a subtle loft-like detail. Painted flat stock molding is applied vertically and horizontally to the media wall to frame a walnut media console. A white sofa faces the media wall and is backed by a walnut live-edge console. A palette of white and smoky gray continues into the owners suite where a stepped-crown ceiling adds drama. The bed is flanked by two white nightstands with gold hardware and dark walnut legs. The dresser is finished in white lacquer over grasscloth with polished gold hardware. White window panels and textured bedding add to the rooms quiet ambiance. In the master bath, the flooring transitions to a 12 by 24-inch straight set gray tile that continues onto the shower floor. The shower walls feature beveled white subway tile. The terrace offers two areas for entertaining. Contemporary charcoal gray mesh dining chairs surround a bold teak liveedge dining table. A modern gray mesh sofa sits on a walnut base and features oversized gray back cushions. Next to the sofa, a mid-century modern teak bar cart is at the ready for sunset cocktails. The two-story Phase II Franklin floor plan offers 3,378 square feet, including 2,857 square feet under air, a 196-square foot private balcony, and a private oversized one-car garage accessed from the residence. The plan features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a living room with a two-story ceiling and double-stacked windows, a dining room, an island kitchen, and a second floor with a 330-square foot flex room, the owners suite, a guest suite, a laundry room, and a glass tube elevator. A glass enclosed shower, soaking tub, and separate vanities are included in the master bath. The remaining Franklin residence features upgraded finishes, including Sheer Glow 24 x 24-inch porcelain tile flooring in the first floor living areas, on the staircase, and in the upstairs loft; level 3 Frosty White Shaker-style cabinetry, level 3 Cloud Nine Pompei Quartz countertops, a drawer microwave in the island, and a KitchenAid vent hood over the cooktop in the kitchen; a Pneumatic Vacuum elevator with an anodized silver finish; and a powder coated aluminum staircase railing with 3/16-inch stainless steel cables. The Ronto Group is also developing the TwinEagles golf community in North Naples, the Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay, and Orange Blossom. A new project located on Central Avenue in downtown Naples is in development. The Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 South Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples is open daily.

Fluent in Spanish! 1-800-591-DERM | RiverchaseDermatology.com GREATER NAPLES FLORIDA WRITERSA towering techno-thriller achievement with a grim political vision Tower Down by David Hagberg. Forge. 320 pages. Hardcover, $25.99.Book 21 in the Kirk McGarvey series by David Hagberg is, among other things, a story about superluxury real estate, the investment strategies of the super-rich and the enormous vanity and sense of privilege that infects those who have virtually unlimited wealth. These are people whose goal is to invest their money in whatever will bring them more money. They interact with one another in a closed world, vying for seats at the parties where you meet those who can get you on the lists for the next super-deals. Mr. Hagberg brings us a post-9/11 world in which the same kind of American longing for monumentalism that motivated radical Islams destruction of U.S. symbols of superiority (exceptionalism?) is about to be repeated. Manhattan is dotted with pencil towers, enormously high, narrow buildings whose huge residential compartments demand enormous prices and whose owners are literally and figuratively on top of the world. Vulnerable to winds, the towers are kept in balance by colossal counterweights tuned mass dampers that adjust to the force of the winds that would otherwise lead to the towers collapse. The main developer of these towers, like his engineers and buyers, is susceptible to the technological vanity that has proven misguided in the past. A freelance madman code-named AlNassr, the Eagle, masterminds the collapse of one of these towers at 87th Street. Fortunately, few of the units had been sold and occupied. Still, hundreds of people are killed both inside and outside of the building. It was 9/11 revisited without the need for airplanes. Or it would be if a twin tower were to be brought down. And that second step is in the works. The target tower would collapse onto the United Nations complex. Great symbolism, eh? Series hero Kirk Mac McGarvey, a former CIA director (and assassin), is once again engaged to discover the details of the plot and undermine it. His theory, shared by just about no one, is that the Saudis (or perhaps one Saudi) are behind it. The purpose of the destruction is to have another attack on the U.S. that can readily be blamed on ISIS, the main threat to Saudi Arabias stability. By this ruse, the Saudi schemers hope to motivate the U.S. to vastly increase its military operations against ISIS. Only two people share Macs view: his beautiful CIA operative love interest Pete Boylan (yes, a woman named Pete) and Otto Rencke, a good friend who is an unusual techno-genius. Point of view in this novel oscillates between Macs group and the incarnation of the Eagle, a British-educated, heartless killing machine known as Kamal, whose effective disguises gain him access to the corridors of financial power as well as to the mechanical guts of the pencil towers. An adversary of considerable skills and no scruples, hes also a sex maniac, which makes for several darkly delicious scenes. This is an exceptionally well-crafted thriller in which suspense is generated by the race against time. Like much of Mr. Hagbergs work, Tower Down extrapolates from current events to build a horrifying, near-future premise. The political and technological currents are vivid, powerfully presented and compelling, and the money-soaked cultural environment is splendidly realized. The elite potential customers for pencil tower residences and for insider tips on stupendous investments rendezvous not only for the art season in New York, but also for glittering events in Monaco, Cannes and elsewhere. Mr. Hagberg is a seasoned pro who delivers at the highest level time and time again.About the authorDavid Hagberg is a New York Times bestselling author who has published numerous novels of suspense. His 21 thrillers featuring former CIA director Kirk McGarvey include Abyss, The Cabal, The Expediter and Allahs Scorpion.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSISTER ACTFrom page 1Based on the 1992 movie starring Whoopi Goldberg, the story revolves around Deloris Van Cartier, a disco singer who accidentally witnesses a mob shooting. Shes put into the witness protection program and placed where the gangsters would least think to look for her: in a convent. Deloris bristles at the restrictive lifestyle, but knows she has to stay there in order to be safe. When she hears how bad the convent choir sounds, she takes over, teaching them disco songs from her nightclub days. She also teaches them how to sing in harmony and on time. Mr. Fornara gave his cast of nuns some tips on how to sing poorly, but everyones improvising how to make it not-great, and its funny, he says. They made it their own. Theres a number called Raise Your Voice, when Deloris gets them to come out of their shell. It progresses from weak, half-hearted, bad church-choir singing as they gain confidence and strength. Its a super-talented cast. I didnt have to coach them that hard to get them to where I wanted them to be. The score includes some snippets from the Latin Mass as well. I think the score is really terrific, Mr. Fornara says. I didnt know it before getting to work on this, and Ive fallen in love with it. The orchestrations are unbelievable. Everyone loves disco even if they werent alive during that era, he adds. I feel like 0s music has such a broad appeal, that even if people cant name Donna Summer and the Bee Gees, theyre familiar with the songs. Everybodys seen Saturday Night Fever. Even though many (in the cast) are younger than I am, I think theres a real familiarity with that style even people in their late teens or early 20s. I think most people know and understand this music. And most people are familiar with the movie, too. (The movie was set in present day San Francisco; the musical moves the action to 1978 Philadelphia, smack in the middle of the disco era.) Fans of the movie will also notice that the music for the stage show is different. No reworking of My God sung to the tune of My Guy or I Will Follow Him. And no version of Shout, with its gospel fervor. This is a completely original discoinspired score by Alan Menken, with lyrics by Glenn Slater. Mr. Menken is famous for numerous Disney movie scores, including The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocohantus. Hes also composed scores for Little Shop of Horrors and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In this Sister Act, his song Take Me to Heaven which he calls the nuns break-out number is one Deloris used to sing in her nightclub with two back-up singers. She teaches the nuns a choral version of it, transforming a song about romance or sex into a spiritual number. Then theres Sunday Morning Fever You know, instead of Saturday Night Fever, Mr. Fornara says. The musical has production numbers along with nun ensemble numbers that are more like traditional theater numbers. The big finale is Spread the Love Around, which the nuns perform for the Pope. Each time they perform, they become more and more polished, more professional, Mr. Fornara says. Deloris is played by Jasmine Vizena, who has also been in The Naples Players productions of The Importance of Being Ernest, Shout! The Mod Musical and The Rocky Horror Show. Shes absolutely fierce, says Mr. Fornara. Shes so good, he adds, I feel she could get this role at any theater in the country, at any level. She brings everything you want in a Deloris: Shes strong, shes got heart, shes tender. Shes a beast, vocally. She sings the hell out of it. Ms. Vizena is also extremely energetic. I suppose its super, super important to have a great singer in the role, as she has to carry the show, but shes every bit as strong in her acting as she is in her singing, Mr. Fornara says. He is once again working with his wife, Dawn Fornara, who directs and choreographs Sister Act: The Musical for TNP. The two are a formidable theatrical team, having put on such successful musicals as Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Producers and Young Frankenstein at the Sugden in previous seasons, just to name a few. Naples Players veteran Debi Guthery is also performing in Sister Act, as the Mother Superior of the convent (a role played by the very droll Maggie Smith in the movie.) Debi is doing a great job, says Mr. Fornara. Its rare that she plays a role that doesnt center on comedy. She has some great zingers, some great oneliners, but its not necessarily your typical Debi Guthery role. Shes made some amazing adjustments to find some depth and not just go for the punch lines. The musical is family-friendly, Mr. Fornara says, adding that there are a couple of subtle things that will go over the heads of 10-year-olds that adults will get. Its a really lovely show. Its a heart-warming story about finding yourself, staying true to yourself, friendship and acceptance, he says. All that good stuff. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY LEBRECHT-FORNARA FORNARA Sister Act: The Musical>> Who: The Naples Players >> When: June 29-July 30 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre, 701 Fifth Ave. S. >> Cost: $45 general admission, $10 for students and educators >> Info: 263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.org magic between the two of them, Mr. Mutart says. When I watch them I cant take my eyes of either one of them. Its usually the pretty woman who gets my eye, but in this case its both of them. While all the featured films are essential to the Rogers/Astaire canon, Mr. Mutart particularly recommends Top Hat, where Mr. Astaire plays an American dancer who comes to London and falls for a model (Ms. Rogers) whom he unwittingly annoys while she mistakes him for his producer. Considered one of the best song-and-dance movies ever made, Top Hat features featherlight dance sequences choreographed to music by Irving Berlin. Heres the lineup: June 30: The Gay Divorcee (1934) When an American woman travels to England to seek a divorce from her absentee husband, she meets and falls for a dashing performer. July 7: Top Hat (1935) An American dancer comes to London and falls for a beautiful model who mistakes him for his goofy producer. July 21: Swing Time (1936) A gambler and performer travels to New York City to raise the $25,000 he needs to marry his fiance, only to become entangled with a beautiful aspiring dancer. Aug. 4: Shall We Dance (1937) A budding romance between a ballet dancer and a tap dancer becomes complicated when rumors surface that theyre already married. Aug. 18: The Barkleys of Broadway (1949) A successful but constantly feuding husbandand-wife musical comedy team threatens to break up when the wife entertains an offer to become a serious actress. The FGCU Naples Center is at 1010 Fifth Ave. S. Admission to the Friday afternoon summer classic film screenings is $6 for Renaissance Academy members, $8 for others.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Non-Ethanol Fuel with ValvTect Additive OPEN TO THE PUBLICHamiltonH arborYachtC lub.com PREMIUM SERVICE & NON-ETHANOL FUEL LESS THAN 10 MINUTES FROM GORDON PASS! ARTS COMMENTARYCamping it up with Blanche and Baby JaneIf ever a movie cried out to be mocked, its the 1962 classic Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? The psychological thriller revolves around two sisters who were both stars in their time. Fortune reversed their fates as they aged. As a precocious young girl, Baby Jane was a singing and tap-dancing vaudeville sensation, but she lacked talent and appeal after she grew up. (She was a spoiled brat as a child, and her disposition hasnt improved as she aged.) Her older sister, Blanche, however, grew to become an extremely successful movie star whose career was destroyed when her legs are crippled in a car accident. Now shes confined to a wheelchair in her room on the second floor, where shes abused, physically and psychologically, by her younger sister, now an alcoholic and very unstable mentally. Blanche needs to escape. But how? She is dependent upon her torturer for everything. Jane is like an abusive husband, isolating Blanche physically and socially. The two are living in a special hell of their own making. It is sibling rivalry to the extreme. The movie starred Joan Crawford as Blanche and Bette Davis as Baby Jane. Laboratory Theaters Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? A Parody of the Horror stars Rob Greene and Randall Kenneth Jones, both throwing themselves into their roles with an over-thetop glee. Everything about this play, written by Dale Gutzman and directed by Lab Theater founder Annette Trossbach, is over-the-top. The make-up is slathered on. Blanches penciled-in eyebrows are upside-down Vs. Baby Jane favors blue eye shadow. And their bosoms are positively Parton-esque. Mr. Jones as Baby Jane lumbers about, dressed in pink, her golden blonde hair still in childish banana curls. Baby Jane is no longer dainty. (To give you an idea of how far from dainty Mr. Jones is, one of his previous roles was that of Frankensteins monster.) Impersonating Ms. Davis strange, staccato way of speaking, he bites off words as if snapping the necks of defenseless small animals. Meanwhile, Mr. Green plays the martyr to the hilt, dressed in black like a Puritan. The scene where he tries to escape from his room, navigating the stairs on useless legs, is one of the highlights of the evening. (Baby Jane has taken Blanches phone, and the only working one is on the ground floor near the front door.) The two actors chew the scenery with abandon. Its the type of play and production where anything goes. Sight gags, physical humor, word play, bad puns its all in there, along with rotary phones and a manual typewriter. Some jokes fall short, but dont worry, theres another one coming and another, and another if that one didnt nudge your funny bone. Some actors play multiple roles; Steven Coe and William Patrick Rogers are particularly funny as cigar-smoking movie producers. Patrick Erhardt plays Mrs. Flagg, a daffy British mum, with Jack Weld as her son, Edwin. (The scenes where Baby Jane comes on to Edwin are some of the funniest in the show.) Cindi Heimberg plays the nosy but clueless next-door neighbor, and Eren Sisk is her exasperated teenage daughter. The role of the housekeeper, Elvira, played by a woman of color in the movie, is now a Swedish (or Swiss?) maid with a feather duster who seems to have walked right off the stage of playing Inga in Young Frankenstein. One of absurdities that made me laugh was the disembodied hand of the stage manager (Holly Hagan), which would appear from the wings on occasion to provide a prop. Its difficult to reduce a movie with all its various locales to a stage, especially one as small as Lab Theaters. But they make do (though Blanches bedroom looks awfully small, barely large enough in which to throw a tantrum). Set designer Michael Eyth gets away with giving the suggestion of rooms or spaces. This parody is grotesquely humorous. We find ourselves laughing at people being slapped or beaten and talking cruelly to each other. The horror and suspense of the movie has been transformed into something humorous, campy and slapdash. Familiarity with the movie is not necessary but will definitely help you get the jokes and references. Early in its run, the shows obviously a success; Ive rarely seen the Lab Theater so packed. Is it high theater? Far from it. But it provides some laughs. Or, as Mrs. Bates, the neighbor, says: One must forget the unpleasant past and concentrate on the unpleasant present. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror>> Who: The Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When: Through July 15 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $23 ($20 for seniors and $10 for students) >> Info: 218-0481 or www.laboratorytheaterorida.com COURTESY PHOTOJack Weld as Edwin Flagg, the pianist hired to help relaunch Janes career, and Randall Kenneth Jones as the title character in Lab Theater production of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror.

CONTRACT BRIDGEHindsight vs. Foresight BY STEVE BECKERIt is said that some of the best plays in bridge are made away from the table. Post-mortems often reveal winning plays that simply escape declarer in the heat of battle. Here is a typical example. South was in four hearts, and West led the king of clubs. Declarer ruffed, crossed to dummy with a trump, ruffed another club, played another trump to dummy and ruffed dummys last club. Having set the stage for a possible endplay, South cashed the K-A of spades and exited with dummys ten. He was hoping West would have to win the trick, in which case West would have been endplayed. But East won with the queen and shifted to a diamond, and South went down one. Later that night, while trying to fall asleep, declarer realized that he should have made the contract. All he had to do was to discard a spade on the king of clubs at trick one. West would have been rendered helpless by this play. Lets assume he shifts to a trump at trick two. Declarer wins in dummy, ruffs the seven of clubs, cashes the K-A of spades and ruffs the ten. South returns to dummy with a trump, leads the queen of clubs and discards a diamond on it. West wins but is stymied. He must lead a diamond or yield a ruff-and-discard, and either play hands declarer the contract.

C14 WEEK OF JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESThe Hero (Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman) An aging former movie star (Elliott) tries to reconcile his disappointing life after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Mr. Elliotts performance is stellar, but the story is underdeveloped and some important characters barely register. Rated R.Beatriz At Dinner (Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton) A masseuses (Hayek) car breaks down at her wealthy clients (Britton) home, so shes invited to stay for a dinner party that night, where she butts heads with a real estate mogul (Lithgow). The script wants to say a lot, yet it never figures out how to say it. The ambition for ripe social commentary is here, but not the execution. Rated R.Cars 3 (Voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Chris Cooper) Old and nearing retirement, Lightning McQueen (Wilson) undergoes a new training regiment that will help him keep up with younger, faster cars. Much of the story is adultthemed, so it might be a tough sell for kids, but then this is Pixar, which never seems to have trouble selling anything. Rated G.The Mummy (Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe) Treasure hunter Nick (Cruise) accidentally wakes a mummified princess (Boutella), and shes not in a good mood. Its lighthearted horror fun with one heckuva plane crash sequence thats just about worth the price of admission alone. Rated PG-13.Megan Leavey (Kate Mara, Common, Edie Falco) A Marine (Mara) and her bomb-sniffing dog bond and save lives in Iraq. 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.

YesThe Beguiled is a dramatic exploration of morality during war, but its not told on the battlefield or anywhere near the front lines. Rather, director Sofia Coppolas (Lost In Translation) visually drab film is set mostly inside a Virginia boarding school for girls during the Civil War. By zeroing in on the location, and with the knowledge that the audience is aware of whats going on in the immediate vicinity, Ms. Coppola effectively heightens the danger and complexity of the narrative. Its 1864. While on a walk, young Amy (Oona Laurence) happens upon gravely wounded Union soldier John McBurney (Colin Farrell), whos been shot in the leg. She brings him back to the school, which is run by Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman). Being a good Christian, she instructs her colleague Edwina (Kirsten Dunst) as well as teenage Alicia (Elle Fanning) and the younger Jane (Angourie Rice), Marie (Addison Riecke), Emily (Emma Howard) and Amy to care for John, because hes never going to make it. But he does make it, and what ensues is an intriguing look at human nature, sexual desires and betrayal. After three years of having their fathers and brothers at war, now theres a man staying in the house. Not just any man: an enemy, one whom Alicia makes it a point to refer to in disdain as a blue belly and Yankee. Slowly, though, John grows on them. He smiles, is kind, doesnt take them for granted, shows appreciation. Although Martha makes sure he knows he isnt wanted, her actions belie her words. The females know the right thing to do is care for and protect him, but they also all feel drawn to him. When an unspoken competition for his attention ensues, he welcomes and encourages all of it. Whats fascinating about Ms. Coppolas script, which she adapted from the novel by Thomas Cullinan, is how each female feels drawn to John in different ways and for different reasons depending on her age. You can see the temptation on Marthas face as she gives an unconscious John a sponge bath. Edwina yearns for a way out of the seminary, and feels a connection that he seems to reciprocate. Alicias sexual awakening corresponds with Johns arrival, making her curious to explore things she previously didnt think about. In all instances, including those of the younger girls, The Beguiled is a triumph of performance subtlety. Take the scene in which the females play a song for John. Note the way Edwina and Alicia look at him, and the way Martha sees them looking at him. This is all done with the smallest of glances and timely editing, no words needed. And yet it says so much. How the situation evolves is daring and unexpected, not to mention twisted. You think you know where its going, and then youre wrong. Thats part of the fun. It might be a bit of a slow build in the beginning, but as this happens, the production and costume design, as well as the cinematography and sounds of cannons firing off in the distance, are creating the proper mood for whats to come. Sure enough, the last third of The Beguiled packs a wallop, and at the end youre quite taken by what youve just seen. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com >> Director Miguel Arteta also directed the underrated comedy Cedar Rapids.

I cannot stop collecting. I came by it honestly enough. My Aunt Cleo left me a set of Fostoria American pattern iced tea glasses, a pitcher, a sugar bowl and a few other pieces of the heavy, cubed pattern. I liked it and I used it still do, in fact. But I duly broke one of the glasses in 1988 and set out to replace it. Around that same time, my grandmother announced she was giving my sister her set of Imperial Candlewick glassware, with its wonderful beaded edge. But Grandma only had a small number of small plates, so I was tasked with the mission of completing her set in time for my sisters wedding. As you might have guessed, one thing led to another, and in a year or two, I was shopping Depression glass shows in Lakeland and Miami, perusing shops everywhere from Naples to Sarasota I even found old stock at a jewelry store in Clewiston, of all places, years after the glass had been discontinued. But my interests moved beyond Fostorias American. Oh, its pretty enough, but the glass is heavy and the larger pieces can be bulky and hard to store. And why limit yourself to Fostoria, when you can choose glassware in an array of colors? Fortunately, I did put a stop of sorts to things, limiting myself to rarities of American Elegant Depressionera glassware the handmade stuff youd have bought at a department or jewelry store sometime between the 1920s and the 1960s. The colors of glass by the Heisey, Cambridge, Duncan, New Martinsville and Morgantown companies were deeply saturated in rich rubies, glowing ambers, regal cobalt and the most emerald of greens. But as with all collectibles, the market for glassware is cyclical. Im glad I like these things their dollar value has taken a big hit over the past 15 years. Many pieces are worth a fraction of what they were worth 20 years ago. Thats OK in a way the Art Deco pieces of Cambridge still make me smile, so I have received my moneys s a F e t scott SIMMONS email@example.com Where: Noahs Ark Helping Pets Inc., 824 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach; 561-833-8131 or www. noahsarkhelpingpets.com. Paid: $5 The Skinny: I always liked Fostorias Trojan etched pattern, with its slightly Art Deco motif of shields. The glass is good quality, and the topaz coloring is a pleasant shade of yellow. And I liked this compote well enough that I bought it twice once a number of years ago for a princely sum, then again a few weeks ago after regretting having donated it to my friends charity shop along with box after box of glassware from my garage. As it turned out, I was the only one who liked it the piece sat for weeks priced at $10 at my friends shop. I happened to drop off a carload of items on a day everything was halfprice and bought it back. Something tells me my friend Joyce, who collects Trojan, may not have this piece. I have a feeling it will make its way into her collection next time I see her. THE FIND:A Fostoria Trojan pattern compoteworth of enjoyment from the pieces, regardless of whether they bring anything should I try to sell them I still remember the thrill of buying a cobalt glass Heisey Empress pattern bowl for $40 at a time when the piece easily would have fetched 10 times that amount. I cannot put a price on that thrill, and Im reminded that one never should collect with the aim of retiring off the proceeds look at what happened to the values of all those Beanie Babies folks bought as investments back in the s. Rather, buy the things you love. Always use and enjoy them and recognize that in doing so, you will make sure they pay for themselves tenfold. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Fostoria Trojan pattern compote was made between 1929 and 1936 at the companys factory in Moundsville, W.Va.

Is he worried about being typecast as a villain? Dollie F., via emailA: Earlier this year, I caught up with Tom during a press junket for the Celebration of Harry Potter weekend at Universal Studios Orlando. He told me when you learn from the best think about all the acclaimed British thespians whove passed through Hogwarts hallowed halls its the nuance of the bad guy thats fun to play. Its not just about playing that kind of role, Tom said. I learned mostly from just watching the adults. Weve had some of the best training in the world, just from being around these actors and seeing how they work. And not just acting, but how they deal with stuff off the set, how they interact with the crew, their level of professionalism. Those are all things I took for granted. Now that I work on other sets, I realize how good our training has been really. The other side is that none of the bad guys I play are bad. Thats the point, that theyre all good people. They are. They just cant quite get the grips of it. Theyre usually tortured. Theyre usually insecure. So, it feels natural now to read a villains character and to immediately sympathize with him and to find some reason to love him versus reasons to hate him. Q: You mentioned a while back that The Good Place had been renewed for another season. Do you know when it will premiere? Will it be midseason like the first season? Dana K., via FacebookA: You dont have too much longer to wait to see if Eleanor (played by Kristen Bell) will find Chidi (William Jackson Harper) again. Season two premieres at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, on NBC. The characters go through a Groundhogs Day-type redo as Michael (Ted Danson) finds more ways to torture Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Jianyu (Manny Jacinto).

Bar The Menu: www.coopershawkwinery.com The Details: I was thrilled when my lunch companion suggested we meet at Coopers Hawk and said it was one of his and his wifes favorite places. Id never been there but had been curious ever since it opened. The modern-looking building on the west side of U.S. 41 just north of Immokalee Road is so big; how could a restaurant fill it up? Well, its a lot more than a restaurant, I learned. The foyer is also a gift shop, with artful displays of wine and wine accessories to browse, from openers and aerators to Corkcicles and Swig tumblers (if you have to ask about the later two, you need to get to Coopers Hawk). Just beyond this area is a long, sleek tasting bar (quiet at this time of day, but I bet its hopping at happy hour). Then theres the cool-looking bar and the restaurant, with booths and tables to accommodate all sizes of parties. We settled in to a nice booth for two. Goat cheese and Marcona almonds are two of my favorite things, and I dont think Id ever seen them in the same dish. Thats why as soon as I read the description of the Napa Chicken Chopped Salad, I knew it was what I wanted: Apples, goat cheese, dried cherries, corn, avocado, toasted Marcona almonds, cilantro and tomatoes, in a big bowl of mixed green and tossed with a honey mustard vinaigrette. It was as delicious as it was filling. Because it was lunch and we both had work to do afterward, we opted for iced tea instead of the wines the menu thoughtfully recommended for pairing with our respective dishes (my friend had what he said was his Coopers Hawk go-to lunch: the BBQ Ranch Chicken Chopped Salad). We stuck to our guns and also declined dessert, several of which involved wine. I look forward to going back just for the Lemon Ice Wine Cheesecake. Cindy Pierce email@example.com

Bills on the East Trail has what youre after. Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band so you might land one if you want it. Most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor. There are no surprises on the menu, but there are lots of choices for both meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 C Level Bistro & Wine Bar, 4450 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 221-7046 The menu mixes modern twists with some Old World classics. Think steak au poivre and crepes Suzette but factor in microgreens and nasturtium garnishes. The presentation of dishes is thoughtful, precise and just lovely. Start with the C Level sampler trio of zesty ceviche, lush and airy pat and spinachartichoke spread thats less heavy than most versions. C Level offers a fair amount of lighter seafood options, but its hard to pass up perfectly cooked herb-crusted rack of lamb and classic tournedos Rossini, twin filets of tender beef topped with thin slices of pat de foie gras and draped in Prigourdine sauce, a silky demi-glace sauce enriched with truffles. Five years ago, C Level was still trying to find its footing. The bistro has since achieved clarity in its concept and menu. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Flacos Mexican Specialties & Steak House, 2371 Vanderbilt Beach Road; Naples; 431-8733 This long-time purveyor of Mexican fare recently relocated to spacious new digs at the Shoppes at Vanderbilt. While the space is large and bright, its also extremely noisy. Mercifully, theres an outside patio for those who need a more tranquil setting. The menu remains wide ranging, with an array of combo dishes as well as ceviche, mole and other Mexican favorites. Zesty salsa came with fresh chips as soon as we arrived. The ceviche and drunken shrimp appetizers, however, could have used some more heat. A cheese enchilada and beef burrito combo was a good choice while the seafood taco turned soggy when combined with a chicken enchilada with green tomatillo sauce. A gluten-free cake made of nuts with chocolate icing and Nutella was a good finish to the meal. Service was on the brusque side throughout the meal, giving us the impression that we should eat up and move on. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2016 MidTown Kitchen + Bar, 2110 Ninth St. N., Naples; 908-6558 Veteran restaurateur Michael Hernandez has created yet another inviting establishment. The hip MidTown Kitchen + Bar is much like his HobNob Kitchen but with a parking lot and outside the confines of Old Naples. Whether you want to sit in the bar, at big booths in the dining room, outside or at a communal table, its all there along with a staff of well-trained servers to deliver beverages and a goodly assortment of small and large plates that run the gamut from virtuously vegetarian to confirmed carnivore. Coldwater black mussels with spicy curry, lemongrass and coconut milk could have been warmer but were tasty nonetheless, served with pita triangles for sopping up the delicious sauce. Crispy chicken thighs with cashews and kung pao sauce were also good. The vegetarian plate featured faro, roasted Brussels sprouts, baby bok choy, carrots and sweet potatoes. Even meat lovers would enjoy this hearty platter. The $28 lobster roll was pricey but large and delicious, served with sweet potato fried sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2016 Ristorante Farfalla, 21301 Tamiami Trail, Estero; 495-9912 Chef-owner Michael Fattah has maintained his commitment to top-shelf ingredients, freshly made pasta, lighter sauces and handmade desserts since opening Farfalla in 1998. No garlic knots or meatball subs here; calamari and penne alla vodka are the closest things to culinary clichs. Fattahs fresh pasta is a must-have, and it might be as dazzling as a special of squid ink and saffron fettuccine with littleneck clams, green mussels, shrimp and lobster. From the regular menu, you cant go wrong with one of the half-dozen veal dishes, the risottos or the handmade gnocchi. Dont pass on dessert, which are served with chilled forks; the cannoli and cheesecake both are filled with an ethereal blend of ricotta and triplecream mascarpone. Beer and wine.

The restaurant business is a tough one that requires a divergent blend of strengths: a creative chef, business acumen that enables said chef to hold the line on costs without sacrificing quality, a well-trained staff and an appealing ambience. Achieving any one of those standards is tough; trying to balance all of them is so difficult that more restaurants fail than succeed in their first few years of operation. But some do manage to make all those moving parts work well together. Sam-Bucco Bistro is one of them. The brainchild of Chef Sam Tadros and then-business partner Adel Khalil, the restaurant tucked into a corner of a strip shopping center just north of Mercedes-Benz of Bonita Springs, oozed elegance and charm, providing an ideal showcase for Mr. Tadros inspired Mediterranean cuisine.Mr. Tadros left a few years ago to open his current Bonita Springs restaurant, Figs Grill, and the charming Mr. Khalil has departed as well. In their place is Brian Angelo, who has kept the chef and staff and done an admirable job of preserving the restaurants unique charm.I will confess to being a tad worried on a recent Saturday night when we arrived a bit early and there were only two tables occupied. Yes, its June and it was a rainy night at that, but people still eat out, especially on Saturdays. I need not have worried. By the time we were tucking into our entrees, a large party had taken possession of the entire back of the dining room and smaller parties were filling in the front.The staff was gracious and competent, and Mr. Angelo seemed to be everywhere greeting new arrivals, checking tables and introducing himself, even clearing tables as needed. At one point, I spotted him behind the bar serving drinks, demonstrating the same hands-on attention to detail that so impressed me when Mr. Khalil handled the front of the house. The dining room is unchanged. Long sheer curtains grace the large windows, and lush taupe and brown hues create a comforting oasis even on a hot, muggy night. The bar at the entrance beckons passersby to stop in and relax. It remains a wholly inviting place to dine. Im happy to report that while the focus of the menu has shifted somewhat from the global approach of Mr. Tadros to a more predictable continental style, what emerges from the kitchen is well executed.The wine list, a good-sized book, is a bit light on whites but has plenty of nice reds from which to choose. We were pleased with the Speri Valpolicelli Classico Superiore Ripasso ($62), sometimes referred to as a baby Amarone, with its deep garnet hue, plum and cherry notes balanced by smooth tannins.A fairly lengthy list of nightly specials included gazpacho ($7.75) and toasted spinach ravioli ($8). While gazpacho can be somewhat acidic, this one wasnt, mellowed by a dollop of sour cream that worked well with the chilled tomatobased broth studded with crunchy bits of celery, green pepper, onion and tender baby shrimp. It was the perfect starter on a steamy summer night. The toasted spinach ravioli consisted of three large pillows stuffed with ricotta and spinach topped with greens, chopped tomatoes and a light application of marinara. The ravioli were breaded and crisp but were a little dry. A touch more sauce might have solved that problem. Nonetheless, it was a generous portion that could be shared by two. My companion chose another special for his entre, the miso-marinated haddock in peach cream sauce ($31.50). The fish was flaky and moist, topped with shrimp and a light cream sauce, accompanied by pickled ginger, risotto and a mix of tender-crisp broccoli and carrots. It was a lovely and bountiful dish. After assurances by our server that the duck was crisp as described on the menu, I selected the duck Grand Marnier ($26.50). The half duck possessed crisp, delicious skin and moist flesh with a sauce that was lightly sweet, just enough to brighten the flavor of the duck. It came with a square of scalloped potatoes and the same vegetables as the haddock. Although many restaurants offer duck, few get it right. The kitchen here did a great job.From the dessert offerings, we tried the mini cannoli ($5.50) and lava cake ($9). The cannoli filling was creamy and tasted good, but the shells were hard and shattered into a million pieces when we cut into them. We left them and turned our attention to the lava cake, a small round of dark chocolate cake with a molten chocolate center served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was an excellent rendition of this ubiquitous dessert. We left not a crumb. Service was excellent throughout our meal, even after things got busy. Mr. Angelo came by to describe the desserts and to ensure that we were happy with our meal. Our server and the server assistant were friendly and efficient, making sure that dishes arrived and departed on time and that water and wine glasses remained filled. I so rarely get the chance to return to places Ive enjoyed before. It was refreshing to find Sam-Bucco changed but still the same in all the ways that count.
