And theres no reason they should stop now. In the interests of world peace, I think its time to bring horses back into the center of the culture. And not just the culture of one place or another of Asians, North Africans, Europeans or North Americans but the culture of a world now invested in itself, en masse, for better or worse. We need a massive aid program funded by an alliance of first-world nations that breeds and delivers horses to every state, province or territory, every town or village of every nation on the planet. And we need trainers and teachers to introduce every child in every setting not just to computers but to horses to their daily care, to their talents and personalities, to their magnificent minds, hearts and bodies. Given what weve spent on wars just this young century alone, the cost should be no problem. If we do this for children everywhere, we not only end unemployment somebody has to shovel manure, after all; somebody has to grow their food, build their stables, put up their fences, make their tack and learn the science of their care but we give humans a freedom too few of us possess nowadays. Heres what I mean. Horses can live 20 to 25 years, sometimes more, and they take a lot of care. In return, they provide a kind of freedom both personal and human, not merely constitutional, to caretakers. One idea of freedom is contained in the notion of escape escape from obligation, duty or discipline. But the other idea of freedom is this: By caring deeply for something outside yourself, by devoting yourself to the disciplines and knowledge of an art horsemanship, in this case you can free yourself from ignorance, superficiality and a wasted life. When people are free, in this sense, they may be more inclined to peace. And if they arent, they may be too tired to worry about it. Here are a few things to know about horses. For almost 6,000 years, theyve been a continuous part of human culture in Europe and Asia. Surprisingly enough, the North American version of the horse began to disappear about 10,000 years ago, becoming extinct across our big beautiful continent over the next 2,500 years. But the civilizations of Asia, Europe and North Africa developed and used horses in countless ways: to travel, to farm, and to work. To fight each other, to eat, to clothe themselves from time to time, to play and compete in sport. For nearly any great ambition in the world the overseas world, as we think of it now one of two things was once required: a horse or a boat. Or both. The entire freight of that horseand-boat history arrived back in North America in the holds of Spanish sailing vessels a mere five centuries ago. And that changed everything, here. The Spanish had a hard time in Florida, horses or not. But they managed to wander all over the central and western parts of North America from Mexico to Canada losing their horses. Thus they reintroduced them to the continent and to Native Americans, who caught on so quickly it still defies belief. In the sudden-flash passage of just over two centuries, the Plains Indians adapted their somewhat stationary cultures to the horse, becoming nomadic tribes who followed the migratory patterns of the buffalo. They could ride better than the Europeans, too, getting more out of the beautifully balanced, natural athlete beneath them in speed and agility by adopting a style the Mongols and the Persians had used. The Indians rode forward, just behind the withers of the animal the high point where the back meets the base of the neck. The Europeans, on the other hand, tended to mount their horses with heavy midback saddles that put more pressure on the horse, the equivalent of a hiker carrying a backpack slung around the middle of the spine just above the waist, rather than balanced farther up the torso. Those heavy European saddles used by the Crusaders were the precursors to the later, lighter cowboy or western saddles so common, still, in North America and Australia. You can stick in them; its harder to come out. But so-called English saddles and cavalry saddles were also adapted by European and American riders, based on what they learned from Asian and North African riders. If all that sounds antiquated and distant in time, it isnt. Think of it this way: There are people still living, a few of them, who came into the world when city streets, like country roads, were filled with horses. When the sounds of internal combustion engines had not yet been heard by most people, or maybe even by anybody. When countless men and women devoted their lives to caring for these remarkable animals. We dont want that world again, the world of horse use, but we want a new one, a world of horse love, if I can describe it that way. When people from childhood are given the freedom of such love, they tend to be more peaceful. More responsible. More certain of themselves. Happier. As others have said before me, Ride on, easy rider.

Thus, spoke President Ronald Reagan on Independence Day in 1986. His speech was but one of the highlights of Liberty Weekend, a four-day celebration of the restoration and 100th anniversary of the gift of Lady Liberty to the United States from the people of France. The Frenchman who initiated the famous gift was Edouard de Laboulaye. He imagined Liberty Enlightening the World as a public monument evocative of classical images of a powerful, honorable national authority over any ideology above conservatism, and liberalism and above radical revolutions and political turmoil. He hoped Frances gift to the United States would encourage his own people to emulate Americas example. The idea had currency. France contemplated its own future governance: To king or not to king? America was a role model for government by and for the people. The values embodied in Lady Liberty spoke to the aspirations of both nations. A fortuitous partnership formed between Laboulaye and the French sculptor, Auguste Bartholdi. Both envisioned Liberty Enlightening the World as an international symbol representing the ideals and values upon which America was founded. France commissioned Bartholdi to design the massive sculpture and Gustave Eiffel to build it. It took more than a decade to complete the project. In October 1886, during the administration of Grover Cleveland, the people of France presented Lady Liberty to the people of America, to commemorate the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolution and to honor Abraham Lincoln for his devotion to democracy. A hundred years later, America celebrated the anniversary of its arrival and the monuments restoration. Lady Libertys torch of freedom blazed anew. Millions of immigrants have arrived from around the world. They have become Americans, too. We are a nation of immigrants. Lady Liberty is far more than an elegant column of copper, iron and gold leaf stationed on a nifty island in New York Harbor. She is America incarnate. The centennial of its arrival on American soil thus prompted a patriotic celebration like none other in American history. The event pulled out all the stops. It included the largest flotilla of tall ships ever gathered together in a naval revue in modern history; and a firework display of magnitude unprecedented for its time. Lady Liberty is the nations touchstone to remind us what it means to be an American. President Reagan took up this theme in his remarks. He said we are a nation built on a universal claim to human dignity, on the proposition that every man, woman, and child had a right to a future of freedom. That which divides us from within threatens us all, he said. He told a story to illustrate his point: He described the 1800 presidential campaign between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. It was a bitter battle between opposing factions. Intense partisanship soured a respectful and reasoned discourse concerning the nations future. It was one of the earliest examples of negative campaigning in America politics. Jefferson emerged the victor. The historic partnership was severed that Adams and Jefferson forged to secure the nations independence and the damage done the friendship nearly ended it. Said Reagan, the night before Jeffersons inauguration, Adams slipped away to Boston, disappointed, brokenhearted and bitter. Silence ensued. The estrangement lasted for years. But then, said Reagan, when both had retired, Jefferson at 68 to Monticello and Adams at 76 to Quincy, they began through their letters to speak again to each other. Reagan said that the renewed friendship between the two men was their last gift to this nation. What partisan politics had torn asunder was healed by the mutual devotion of Jefferson and Adams to America and to each other, as Americans. Perhaps it was no coincidence that both men passed on the same day within hours of each other, on the Fourth of July, precisely 50 years after having given, as Founding Fathers, the nation its Declaration of Independence. Reagan said the reconciliation between the two men held a lesson for us all of brotherhood, of tolerance and of the strength we find together in our unity as Americans. He concluded with his own takeaway about the meaning of America, having served more than five years as president. He said, the things that unite us far outweigh what little divides us. Tonight, we reaffirm that Jew and Gentile, we are one nation under God; that black and white, we are one nation indivisible; that Republican and Democrat, we are all Americans. Tonight, with heart and hand, through whatever trial and travail, we pledge ourselves to each other and to the cause of human freedom, the cause that has given light to this land and hope to the world.

Commentators who ask wishfully and plaintively, When will Republicans dump Trump and save themselves? are missing the point: Trumps weakness makes him more Republican than ever before.It was possible to imagine Trump, with a head of steam after his upset victory in November, cowing swamp-dwelling Republicans and wooing infrastructureloving, anti-trade Democrats into supporting a populist congressional agenda. But this scenario would have required a strong, focused president marshaling his popularity and driving Congress. Weve seen close to the opposite. Whatever Trumps true ideological predilections, theres no place for him to go. Make deals with the Democrats? At this point, Democrats are more likely to cooperate with Sergey Kislyak on an infrastructure package than with Donald Trump. Dump or triangulate away from Republicans? Well, then who would do Russian investigation defense, besides a handful of White House aides and outside media loyalists? Imagine what the Comey or Sessions hearings would have looked like if Republicans had joined Democrats in the pile-on. The need for support on Capitol Hill could well get more urgent if things go badly the next year and a half. If Democrats take the House, Trump will rely on Republicans for an impeachment defense and, if it comes to that, for the votes in the Senate to block removal. In one sense, this suits Trump. He may have a questionable partisan pedigree, but he is a natural partisan smash-mouth, heedless of process and norms, willing to make whatever argument suits him at any particular time. There have been many Republicans who have opposed Chuck Schumer before; it took Trump to call him a clown. As for congressional Republicans, they, too, dont have much choice. Whatever their true feelings about Trump, his fate is their fate. First, a presidents approval rating heavily influences midterm elections, especially the campaign for the House. Republicans dumping Trump wouldnt make him any more popular. Second, such a distancing is not really politically practicable. If Republicans try to skitter away from Trump, their base will roast them. Third, Republicans want to get some things done legislatively. A poisonous split with the White House wouldnt help. Trump may be a mercurial and frustrating partner, but he is a partner all the same. Finally, most Republicans quite legitimately think the Russian controversy is a media-driven travesty. If there were a smoking gun, this posture would probably change (obviously, in that circumstance, it should change). But Democrats are in no position to lecture Republicans on cutting loose a president of their own party when they twisted themselves in knots to defend Bill Clinton after he lied under oath over an affair that violated every feminist principle the party professed to hold. If Trump and Republicans had their druthers, neither would be in quite this position. But this is the reality for everyone. For now, theres no way out, only through, and through it together.

Valid 7/1/17-7/23/17. $ 59 Includes Golf w/Cart and Range Balls Public Play Limited TimePLUS TAX GUEST OPINIONQuestions abound over North Naples fire merger BY RICHARD HOFFMANBackground: In November 2014, the commissioners of the North Naples Fire District promised the citizens in North Naples that if they approved the referendum to merge with the Big Corkscrew Island Fire District, NNFD tax money will NOT be spent in BCIFD. By using a cost allocation method, the finances of each district will be tracked and maintained separately to ensure one district is not subsidizing the other. Shortly after the merger was approved, the fire commissioners broke their promise and replaced the original cost allocation method with the 86-14 Feder Plan, which allocates 86 percent of all costs and expenses to NNFD taxpayers and the remaining 14 percent to BCIFD taxpayers. The 86-14 Feder Plan, in addition to being unacceptable to the state of Florida, makes it impossible to accurately evaluate the financial performance or financial statements of NNFD or BCIFD. Then, in December 2015, the newly merged North Collier Fire District entered into a 10-year lease purchase agreement to buy two new pumper engines to replace outdated equipment for BCIFD, a cost of $1 million. Impact on North Naples taxpayers: With the 86-14 Feder Plan now in effect, NNFD taxpayers pay $860,000 and BCIFD taxpayers pay $140,000. Using the initially promised cost allocation method, NNFD taxpayers pay 0 percent and BCIFD taxpayers pay 100 percent to replace their own pumper engines. Result: NNFD taxpayers will spend $860,000 to subsidize BCIFD equipment purchase. This is EXACTLY what our elected officials the fire commissioners promised would not happen. Impact on Big Corkscrew taxpayers: This is great news for Big Corkscrew taxpayers, until they realize that when the Big Corkscrew Firefighters Union merged with the North Naples Firefighters Union, Big Corkscrew firefighters were entitled to the same wages and benefits as the North Naples Firefighters. This harmonizing or equalizing of wages increased Big Corkscrews cumulative base pay for all firefighters by more than $400,000. Firefighters got a significant salary increase for doing the same job as before. This additional salary will be paid for by taxpayers in Big Corkscrew. The extra salary expense will continue indefinitely, while savings from the merger are a one-time occurrence. Conclusion: Both North Naples and Big Corkscrew taxpayers would be better off without the merger. A simple closest unit response agreement or a mutual aid agreement would provide taxpayers a similar level of service with very little extra cost. So, why merge? Who benefits from the merger?But wait, theres more: The chairman SEE OPINION, A7
of the new North Collier Fire District boasted that they recently increased firefighter personnel by 20 percent: The District added 27 additional firefighters, or nine per each of the three shifts, which means that nine more firefighters are available to respond each and every day. A 20 percent increase in firefighters is huge and very costly. What was the reason for hiring so many additional firefighters? And whats next? More and bigger fire engines for the new firefighters to ride in, and an increase in taxes to pay for extra fire protection? Considering the (decreasing) number of fires and (increasing) age of our population, hiring more EMS personnel and vehicles would seem logical and more cost effective than adding extra firefighters. Come to the next meeting of the North Collier Fire Control & Rescue District commissioners and find out for yourself how the district will pay the salary and benefits of the additional firefighters. The answer may surprise you. The meeting takes place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 13, at Station 45, 1885 Veterans Park Drive in North Naples. All are welcome.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYgeneration of actors by teaching at the nearby Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre. He clearly still has work to do. To naysayers, he has one thing to say: I dont listen to them. I know the truth. They said I was going to be gone that week! It never hurts to get the last laugh, as he did after a recent appearance. Here we are tonight sitting in front of these people enjoying each other, talking and laughing, he said. The jokes on them!This interview, by Carol Saunders, who knew Burt Reynolds in high school, took place in front of Burt Reynolds Master Acting Class, at his Institute for Film and Theatre in North Palm Beach. Also present were Todd Vittum, Mr. Reynolds assistant and executive director of the institute; Avery Sommers, Broadway star, singer and acting class student, and Cooper Getschal, songwriter, band leader and former class member.Q: What does it feel like to be one of only a very few actors to have a major film like Smokey and the Bandit be popular enough to return to hundreds of theaters across the country and promoted on air by TCM and AMC 40 years after it was first released? BR: Im very, very flattered and Ive been getting lots of emails from fans and friends to congratulate me over this. Q: Around town, you were billed as the new Marlon Brando. How did you feel about that? BR: Well, I wasnt crazy about it, but I thought if hed been crazy about it I would think its great that he was jealous. Marlon liked to change the dialogue in a film without telling the other actors. I like to improvise, too, but I was on the set one time and the line was, Hand me a glass of beer, and he (Burt started to improvise here by imitating Brando with his face and arms). Hand me a glass of (holding his arm and hand up like he was reaching for something from Heaven, (taking forever) beeeer! (This impersonation was on the money and brought laughter because of Burts imitation of Brandos face, mouth and overdone gyrations). He was amazing because you couldnt take your eyes off him. His career was a perfect start with On the Waterfront. He was so pretty and great. Then, as time went by he got lazy and it went downhill. Marlon wasnt interested in changing himself. As actors we are so chained to dialogue and he didnt care about that. He would change the dialogue and not tell the other actors about it. I actually felt sorry or sad that he didnt have people to help him improve like I did. Q: There was one scene he did in Sayonara, that Watson Duncan used to talk to us students about in the acting classes, a death scene with Miiko Taka. Brando did everything with his face and eyes. He didnt say much, but he didnt have to. You have a gift of doing that, too. Your eyes are very expressive. (Laughter when he does a thing with his eyes for the crowd.) I dont think you have to say much. You shouldnt have to. BR: Actors should learn to use their eyes. Its just like being a singer. Just sing. Who were some of the great singers? (He asked the audience.) Answer from audience: Like Willie Nelson or Nat King Cole. He was a great singer who used his eyes and face and he just behaved. (Burt likes to tell his students to just behave.) They behave with their voice. Nats brother is also a good singer and his daughters. Doug McClure was a best friend to Nat. BR: Hes on the good Sinatra station all the time, Legends Radio. Sinatra was great, but his daughters were just spoiled. Todd (Vittum) and I were talking about that and we wonder what they will do with all his music. They have all the songs and I hope they use them the right way to make a living for themselves. Its a shame you cant just set them down and tell them to use the music correctly. Q: What about Frank Sinatra? BR: I have hundreds of stories about Sinatra that I could talk about but want to be selective. One was about comedian Shecky Greene. Shecky said to me, Sinatra saved my life. He said, Thats enough. Shecky had borrowed $100,000 and didnt pay it back. They got him in an alley behind the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami (Beach) and were just beating him, terribly scary. Sinatra happened to walk by and said to the men, OK, fellows, thats enough. Because Sinatra said it, it saved Sheckys life. I didnt join Sinatra much because I wasnt going to do all the bowing and scraping and stuff. But what a voice! I was asked two or three times to a party that Frank was attending. My sister had a big crush on the actor Sonny Tufts (The Virginian, Government Girl), the sweetest man ever, who was always out in the back yard getting a suntan. The party was at Steve Cochrans house. We drove in and Steve went on and on about how good Sonny looked and without makeup! And Sonny just stood there. Frozen. He couldnt say anything because he spent all his time before that party Q: Sitting in the sun! BR: But everybody in Hollywood was there. Frank would say Sing! And they would all sing. Didnt matter what they sang, it would always be a capella, and they would sing and sing. Q: Are you writing another book? BR: Im writing my second book now. (It is the third book he has written. The first was My Life, which came out in 1994.) This last one sold out. So Im writing my next one and a lot of women are going to be worried about what I say (he said with an evil grin on his face). (Big applause.) I really loved working with Jon Winokur (who was the co-writer on the book But Enough About Me.). Im going to call this one The Women. Its going to be about the ladies Ive known, that I wouldve liked to have known and women I hope to know! I think that says pretty much what to expect! (adding another sinister chuckle). They all know me and that I wont write anything bad about certain people. But others (That took us to Loni Anderson, Burts second wife, now divorced.) I remember Loni, one night when we were going out to dinner. I said When are we going out to dinner? She said Oh, about 8 oclock. I said, What are you doing? (It was then only about 3 oclock in the afternoon.) She said, Im getting ready. You are getting ready now? And she said, Youll be happy. It will be worth it. It wasnt so worth it for me, because I had to sit around waiting for what felt like six years. When we would go to a party, it would take twice as long. She did know her cosmetics, however. God love her. She did know her weaknesses and her strengths. So I think thats good, I guess. Q: Was Judy Garland at a party? There are stories out there that she would sing all night long. BR: Yes ... and she would sing everything a capella. Everything! I knew her quite well and, oh, my lord, she could sing. She was amazing. Liza was also there and the two of them would sing together. But, the one I liked the best was Lorna (Luft). She was my favorite one of the sisters. She could really sing. Q: You dated her. Have you heard from her lately? BR: No I havent, but Im sure I will when the book comes out! Q: Smokey and the Bandit grossed $300 million at the box office when it came out in 1977. Have you heard what it did this time (in the recent release)? BR: It came out the same week as Star Wars, and yes, it did very well this time, too. Q: Didnt you and Sally Field ride around a shopping center looking for Smokey when it first came out? BR: Sally and I were going to see Smokey and we drove around the parking lot and saw a huge line waiting to get in to what we thought was Star Wars, that came out the same day as Smokey. Funny thing is, when we drove up, they werent waiting to get in to Star Wars. They were lined up for Smokey. Q: Did you have any idea it would be so popular? Did you see the rushes or see it before it went out? BR: No. I thought Deliverance was a bigger film. But Deliverance didnt have what the people wanted. They wanted to have a good time and they wanted to do what other people wanted to do. Q: And drink a can of Coors beer, since the film was about smuggling a tractor trailer full of Coors. BR: People didnt understand Coors beer was illegal on this side of the Mississippi River at that time, but not today. Q: The beautiful faux scene Nespresso commercial running now with you and George Clooney in the Bandit car. What do you think about that? BR: Of all the actors I know, I think George Clooney could play me or be another Bo Bandit Darville. I got a very nice, healthy check in the mail, so far. And I wrote them a note saying Im working with my favorite actor, indirectly. And he is. Q: He did tell Yahoo News he would love to work with you some day and that you are his favorite co-star.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 NEWS A9and the only guy I can think of is George Clooney. Hes a great guy. Q: Who are some of your favorite actresses and actors of today? BR: Well, George, Ive already said. And I also like John Travolta, I think he is so talented. Hes a little crazy. He came to my trailer on a set. And he just walked in and said he wanted to borrow my clothes. What I like about him is that he made no sense. What we do here is just have fun, dont act, but behave. And Ive been doing it for 55 years. I have the best job and Ive just been so lucky. I can get on a horse and have fun. I love Mariska Hargitay. I really want to do a Law and Order SVU Ive had a crush on her for some time now. The kid from that drummer movie (Whiplash) Miles Teller. He seems to really have his head on straight and knows what hes doing and I might be a little partial here, but Ariel Winter really has some great chops. Q: Who are some of your favorite actresses and actors of the past and why? Is Spencer Tracy one of them? BR: You say Spencer Tracy, and I have to agree. He truly was a master you never could catch him acting he truly became every part he played. And I think Goldie Hawn is very underrated she can do it all comedy, drama, silly, serious, you name it, shes the best! Q: Hal Needham, who died in 2013 of cancer at 82, was your friend and your director on Smokey. Is he one of your favorite directors? BR: He was my favorite director. Im very sad about his death. He was a stuntmans director. He was totally fair. Q: Did he ever ask you to do something that you didnt want to do? BR: Never. In fact I used to try to talk him out of doing something I really wanted to do and he would say, Damn it, Burt. You make useless money. Well, thats tough. I want people to think Im doing it (the stunt). I always had the shot that had the camera on me. I would not leave. (Most actors get up and leave so the stunt double can take over and do the stunt.) So I would let them roll over me or try to throw me off the track. Hal would say, what are you doing? I would say waiting for you to say action! He would say, Damn it, Burt. Come on! You are taking money away from somebody else. I made sure we did three takes, one for me, one for the stunt man and one for Hal. (Burt now suffers from damaged sciatic nerves in his legs. He walks with a cane.) Q: I just saw Rifles on the Fox Movie network this week, and it was fantastic, all over again. It was with Jim Brown, Raquel Welch and Fernando Lamas, and I still cant believe the train was moving and you jumped off, got up and rode a horse down a steep mountain slope. BR: I love that kind of stunt, and always wanted to do that in a film. About halfway down the horse stops and just looks at me, like he is saying Are you crazy? But he went on down. That horse, Destifinado, that was my favorite horse. And I rode him bareback. He and I got along so well, when I left the movie I told the driver, drive up so I can say goodbye to Destifinado. I stuck my head out of the car and he was just trotting along with the car. We were in Spain and I told him I would never forget him, but they wouldnt let me take him home with me. He was a plain white horse and had no tail and no mane and I got some paint and turned him into a pinto. He followed me everywhere and Im walking along in the town and hes following me. Its happening, right in front of your eyes. People think that horses are dumb. They are not. And they love really hard and they love sweetly. And they are busy trying to please everyone and you cant always do that, especially in a movie. SEE BURT, A10 UNIVERSAL PICTURESBurt Reynolds and Sally Field in Smokey and the Bandit in 1977.VICKI L.

GAIL V. HAINES / FLORIDA WEEKLYBurt Reynolds with Carol Saunders, high school fromantics.The first time I set eyes on Buddy Reynolds I was walking down the hall at Palm Beach High School (now the Dreyfoos School of the Arts) in West Palm Beach. I was a lowly sophomore, he was a senior and the most popular football player on our team. With nobody else in the hall, for some unknown reason I raised my hand in a half wave, mustered as big a smile as I could and all I could think of to say was, Hi! He looked at me with a surprise on his face and said, Hi, Kid, and smiled back. I almost fainted. Years later, when I was working at Channel 5 in Palm Beach County, Burt was fast becoming a big television star and on his way to Hollywood (he had dropped the Buddy nickname by then). He was done with his Riverboat show with Darren McGavin, then Gunsmoke and just was starting Hawk. I was appearing at the Lake Worth Playhouse. I think it was in The Odd Couple, playing one of the Pigeon sisters. A friend, Bob Urquhart, was directing with the help of his wife, Jean. Burt dropped in to check it out and help with the directing. Burt and Bob were friends and Burt had come home to visit his folks his dad was the police chief of Riviera Beach. At some point when Burt and I were chatting, he said, You know, Kid, I remember you at Palm Beach High School. You were walking down the hall and raised your hand and gave me a great big Hi! You didnt know me at all and you said Hi like you did. Ive never forgotten that. Burt, whos now 81, has a great gift of a fantastic memory he remembers everybody he likes, and quite a few he doesnt. We went out together once in a while. It was a fromance friendly romance. Our casual dating usually included double dating with the Palm Beach Junior College English instructor who discovered Burt Watson B. Duncan III and his wife, Honey, who, like Burt, was one of Duncans students. Our friendship lasted over the 1960s and 1970s, until he became a really big star. He married and divorced Judy Carne, (an English comedy actress from Laugh In, who died at age 76 in 2015). When we got together, our evenings often ended with having a drink at the Loggia Lounge in Palm Beach and playing Charades at the Loggia, or the Alibi or Ta-boo, on Worth Avenue. Many dates with Burt included crowds of people who flocked around us to watch him play Charades, get an autograph or ask him questions about one of his films or TV series. I learned to just sit back and watch. Early on, I could see that the fine actor in him was fast turning into a really big, shining star. I was grateful to have been in on the start of that. One evening, we joined a gathering at Palm Beach High School Coach Bobby Riggs house to view the TV credits Burt designed for Hawk and the episodes he had just finished. I loved to listen to his many hilarious and sometimes shocking stories of the people he was meeting in Hollywood. Many years went by before he opened the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre in Jupiter A miracle at a bus stop, as Charles Nelson Reilly put it. I was lucky enough to meet Loni Anderson and Rita Moreno, who were browsing in the shopping center that was home to the art gallery my husband and I owned (Tequesta Galleries). Loni is possibly one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever met in person; Rita Moreno probably is one of the nicest. Later, I was working for a local newspaper and frequently interviewed the stars appearing there Burt among them.

JUSTIn order to keep our competitive edge in todays knowledge-based economy, the next generation must have the skills, knowledge and dispositions to create and sustain new forms of enterprise. Communities where all children enter kindergarten ready to learn are best positioned to thrive in the 21st century. Research shows that 85 percent of brain development occurs before age 3, and growth is particularly affected by the quality of childrens home and educational learning environments. This research has special implications for those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are exposed to an estimated 30 million fewer words than their economically advantaged peers (Hart & Risley, 2003). Nobel-laureate economist James J. Heckman (2012) estimated that for every dollar spent on high quality, birthto-5 programs for disadvantaged children delivers a 13 percent per annum return on investment over the course of a lifetime. Florida is outspent on early childhood education by most states, and our childrens preparation reflects that. According to a report from the Florida House of Representatives, more than 38,000 of Floridas children were not ready for kindergarten in 2014, the most recent year for which data was made available. Serving 80 percent of Floridas 4-year-olds, VPKs half-day program is funded at approximately $2,400 per student, ranking it third for access and 39th for spending nationally (Barnett et al., 2015). Florida Kids Count, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation based out of the University of South Florida, reports that Florida is ranked 40th out of 50 on overall child well-being, including economic, educational, health, and family and community indicators (AECF, 2016). In our cost study, we asked what it would take to provide high quality early childhood education in southwest Florida, knowing that our methods could be replicated in other regions or statewide. We engaged local and national experts, including early childhood education center directors and educational leaders, to participate in a professional judgment cost study aimed to estimate the amount of resources needed to prepare all children for kindergarten. Our expert panels determined that kindergarten readiness is more than just knowing your ABCs and 123s. Its about developing the whole child, including what it takes to promote social and emotional growth so that our youth can not only read, write, and compute but work well with others, engage their curiosity and develop creative problem-solving skills all of which are necessary for success in the 21st century workforce. MILLER JUST
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 NEWS A13 To meet this standard, our panelists recommended significantly smaller student-teacher ratios (e.g., four fewer students per teacher in classrooms serving 3-year-olds and six fewer students per teacher in classrooms serving 4-year-olds). Panelists also suggested that teacher qualifications standards should be raised to ensure kindergarten readiness for all children. In todays ECE classrooms, teachers with bachelor degrees are more the exception than the rule. Our panelists recommended that all lead teachers hold at least a bachelors degree and teaching assistants hold at least an associates degree; qualifications that are consistent with Headstart and Floridas VPK recommendations, respectively. Augenblick, Palaich and Associates Inc., our study partner, estimated the cost of resources recommended by our expert panels is $12,057 per child. It is very difficult to estimate how much we spend educating 3and 4-year-olds in Southwest Florida. We aggregated spending from VPK (state), school readiness (state), and Headstart (federal) and USDA (federal) and estimated spending to be about $3,720 per student enrolled in a private center. Unlike other counties in Florida with a dedicated tax to support this population, our five counties do not make a significant local contribution. Parents contribute approximately $6,525 annually for children attending center-based programs. Our study estimated the funding gap between what we spend as a community and what we need to spend is about $1,812 per child. This funding gap still places a large share of the financial burden on parents, one that is lifted when a child enters kindergarten. To fully fund ECE and to lessen the burden on parents, the state could double VPK funding per child and expand access to the program for all 3-yearolds. Alternatively, the obligation could be met with local funding drawn from property or sales tax revenue. A state match on local tax effort could provide a joint state and local solution to the ECE funding dilemma. Our next analysis will examine these options in greater detail.

Maybe youve heard about peanut-free classrooms and flights. People who have serious reactions to certain foods must be careful about what they eat and what others eat around them. Theres no cure for food allergies. But researchers are learning more about how to prevent and treat this condition. Allergic reactions happen when your immune system your bodys defense against germs and foreign substances overreacts to something thats normally harmless. In the United States, most food allergies are caused by peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, eggs, milk, wheat and soy. Allergies show up most often in children. But they can develop at any age. Food allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some people experience a life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include trouble breathing, dizziness and fainting. When you have a food allergy, theres no way to predict how your body will react when youre exposed. You might have a mild reaction one time and a severe reaction the next. If you think that you or your child may have a food allergy, see your health care provider. Your doctor will take a detailed medical history and perform a physical examination. If a diagnosis of food allergy seems likely, they may recommend a blood test or skin prick test. These results will help determine if you or your child has a food allergy. National Institutes of Health researchers have been working to understand food allergies better. There has been a lot of research on peanut allergy because it is often severe, lifelong and has a huge impact on quality of life, explains Dr. Scott Sicherer, a pediatric food allergy expert at Mount Sinais Icahn School of Medicine. Scientists hope the progress they make on peanut allergy will help guide how to handle other food allergies. Researchers recently carried out a large clinical trial called Learning Early About Peanut Allergy. The study looked at infants chances of developing an allergy if they ate peanutcontaining foods at an early age. Six hundred and forty infants who were at high risk of developing a peanut allergy were enrolled in the trial. The infants were randomly placed in either a peanut-eating or peanut-avoiding group. They continued these diets until they were 5 years old. Infants who ate peanut-containing foods beginning early in life had an 81 percent lower chance of developing a peanut allergy. Based on the strength of these findings, an expert panel sponsored by NIH recently issued updated guidelines to help health care providers work with families to introduce peanut-containing foods to infants to help prevent the development of peanut allergy, Dr. Sicherer says. The panel provided three guidelines that describe when and how to give these foods. The recommendations are based on how likely a baby is to develop peanut allergy. Talk with your doctor before you introduce any peanut-containing foods to your infant. The doctor may tell you when and how to start feeding peanut to your baby or recommend doing allergy testing first. Its important to understand that these guidelines are about preventing peanut allergy, not treating an existing peanut allergy, Dr. Sicherer explains. The new guidelines may come as a surprise to some people. Almost 20 years ago, experts recommended that babies at high risk for developing peanut allergy avoid peanut-containing foods until age 3. But nearly 10 years ago, experts withdrew this recommendation. There was no proof that it worked. The most recent change in guidance was prompted by the very compelling results of the LEAP study, says Dr. Marshall Plaut, a food allergy expert at NIH. The new guidelines are based on these results and the clinical knowledge of the expert panel that developed them. Whether this strategy works for other food allergies isnt known. More research is needed to find out if early dietary introduction of other foods may help prevent allergy to those foods, Dr. Sicherer explains. NIH scientists are also looking at ways to treat people who already have food allergies. One promising strategy is called oral immunotherapy. It involves eating small, slowly increasing amounts of the allergy-causing food. One recent study tried this approach for peanut-allergic preschool children. Almost 80 percent of children given the treatment could safely eat peanut-containing foods afterward. More studies are being done to improve the safety and effectiveness of the approach. The therapy is also being studied for people with milk and egg allergies in small clinical trials. There may be other ways to provide this type of therapy. One ongoing study is investigating using a skin patch to deliver small amounts of peanut protein to peanutallergic patients. Early results have shown some promise among young children with peanut allergy. Researchers will continue to assess this approach. Food allergy studies have to be done very carefully because reactions can be life threatening. Talk with your health care provider to learn more about preventing and treating food allergies. Food allergy symptoms Pay attention to how you feel after you eat and learn how to recognize the symptoms of a food allergy. Symptoms may include: >> Coughing >> Tingling in the mouth >> Skin reactions like hives or itching >> Nausea and vomiting >> Stomach pain >> Diarrhea If you have a potentially life-threatening reaction trouble breathing, dizziness and fainting seek immediate medical care by calling 911. HEALTHY LIVING TO YOUR HEALTHMore than sad? Support is hereHave you been feeling really sad, tired and worried for more than a few days? If yes, you could have depression. This is not a character flaw or a sign of personal weakness. You cant make yourself well by trying to snap out of it or lighten up. The depression support group offered by the Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida welcomes anyone who is suffering from this very real mental illness. The group meets from 10:30 a.m. to noon every Thursday at 2335 Tamiami Trail. Support groups provide mutual acceptance and understanding and help facilitate self-discovery. They also give people the opportunity to benefit from the experiences of those who have been or are in the same shoes. Common symptoms of depression include: loss of enjoyment, restlessness and poor nighttime sleep, overeating or loss of appetite, forgetfulness, wanting to stay in bed all the time, unexplained feelings of anger or fear, general aches and pains that dont go away, no sexual energy, lack of focus and no interest in socializing. Talk to your doctor if you are experience any of the above symptoms. Depression is treatable and you can feel better.

PET TALES Canine campers BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIf you loved going to camp when you were a kid (or even if you didnt), think of how great it could have been if youd had your dog with you. Now, going to camp with your dog can be a dream vacation if you love the great outdoors, dog sports, traditional camp activities like canoeing or swimming, or just spending some down time with your best friend. Dog lovers can find canine-oriented camps across the country, including ones aimed at kids. They go to try out new activities, hone skills their dogs already have or build a dogs confidence. Camp gives you a different way to see how dogs learn and affords your dog the opportunity to try any and every sport of interest to you or them, says dog trainer Bev Blanchard, who started out as a camper and now teaches freestyle, agility and canine massage classes at Camp Gone to the Dogs in Vermont. Most dog camps offer a variety of activities, including barn hunt, dock diving, flying disc, herding, lure coursing, rally, tracking and therapy dog training. Others specialize in a single sport, such as agility or nosework. They are ideal for competitors who want to improve their skills in a specific activity. The trust, teamwork and focus that was built with my dog in a marathon series of searches with lots of breaks for my dog could not have been replicated anywhere else, says Mary Wakabayashi of Aliso Viejo, California, who went to nosework camp with her dog Hina. The instructors built on what my regular instructors say and gave another dimension and perspective to being a better teammate for my dog. Hate the idea of organized dog sports? Go swimming, canoeing or hiking, try stand-up paddle boarding, make doggie crafts or just lie under a tree together watching the birds. Some come with their older dogs, and thats what they do, Blanchard says. Here are 10 camps where you and your dog can play to your hearts content: The mother of all dog camps is Camp Gone to the Dogs (camp-gone-tothe-dogs. com), which celebrates its 28th anniversary this year. Camps take place in Marlboro, Vermont, or St owe, V ermont. Camp Dogwood (campdogwood.com) in Lake Delton, Wisconsin, offers camp experiences in fall, winter and spring. Camp Unleashed (campunleashed. com) has sessions in Blue Ridge, Georgia, or the Berkshire Mountains in Becket, Massachusetts. Try barks and crafts, learn canine CPR, study dog nutrition or play outdoors at Canine Camp Getaway (caninecampgetaway.com) in Lake George, New York. Human campers will appreciate the on-site bar/lounge and spa. Learn backcountry safety at Canine Wilderness Companion Adventure Camp (citydogcountrydogtraining.com/campsclasses) at Yachats on the central Oregon coast. Skills include trail manners; hiking, camping and kayaking with dogs; and wilderness first aid. Dogs of Course (dogsofcourse.com) offers a three-and-a-half day nosework training camp in Wimberly, Texas, near Austin. Camp is for kids, too. The Canine Coach in Minneapolis-St. Paul has a fourday Dog Camp for Kids (thek9coach.com/ dog_camp_for_kids.php), geared to ages 5 to 13. Kids and dogs can go together, or if your home is lacking a dog, a trained dog who is familiar with kids will be provided. Enjoy a rustic camping experience with nearby hiking and mountain biking trails with Maian Meadows Dog Camp (maianmeadows.com/2.html) at Lake Wenatchee in Washington. Six days at Lake Tahoes 33-acre Wild Blue Dog Camp (wildbluedogs.org/home) includes Canine Good Citizen training, water sports, classes in Fear Free dog grooming and more. Yellowstone Dog Camp (yellowstonedogsports.com/index.php/summer-camp) in Red Lodge, Montana, offers an indoor arena, hiking trails, ponds for swimming and sheep for herding. At camp, you can experience as many or as few activities as you and your dog like. Pets of the Week>> Captiva is a young spayed Siamese mix who has a sweet disposition.

Summer food is rampant these days and while Im doing my best to avoid it, the food of summer is everywhere and theres no escaping it. The week of Fourth of July is all about hot dogs, macaroni salad and apple pie. Summer is wedding season, so that means rehearsal dinners, wedding buffets and post-wedding brunches. Plus, summer means company picnics that are full of covered dishes and beer kegs. And birthdays there are birthday parties galore all summer long which translate to cake and champagne and chocolates. It makes no sense. This is the season where were running around town in tanks tops, shorts, cute sundresses and rompers while being forced to consume burgers and margaritas every time we venture out of the house for a summer gathering. Yes, of course, there are plenty of carbs and calories offered up during tourist season holiday and party food is everywhere in the form of baconwrapped shrimp and loaded mashed potatoes in martini glasses but during those months, we can at least wear cardigan sweaters and maxi dresses. This time of year, its far too hot to cover up the results of summer food like grilled corn on the cob or frozen strawberry daiquiris. It seems like this would be the perfect time of year for salads and ice water and lemon wedges, but who wants to go to a wedding where theyre serving lettuce and lemons and ice cubes? While I imagine the father of the bride would be happy with the bill, the guests would surely be disappointed. Every summer, I promise myself that Im going to strike a balance. Since its far too hot to take walks or ride my bicycle, Ill just cut calories and carbs. I usually do OK through May although Memorial Day weekend can be challenging potato salad is my Achilles heel, after all. I get back on track in June, but then birthdays start happening and the barrage of cake and ice cream starts. And then we get to Fourth of July when I swear to declare my independence from beanie weenies and cole slaw, but once the fireworks start, there I am with a full paper plate of fatty foods and a red solo cup of something sugary and alcoholic even though I know theres no way Ill be in long pants or long sleeves until December. At least the summertime eaters up north get to throw on hoodies as ea rly as September. Down here, were not so lucky. I was recently invited to a pool party and asked to bring a covered dish. I hope the hostess wont find it odd if I show up in oversized sweats with a bowl full of arugula over ice and a portable electric fan. Hopefully, Ill start a trend. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY ______________________________Loud & clearEvery corporate public relations crisis has a common threadEVERYWHERE WE TURN LATELY, THERE SEEMS to be a new corporate crisis in the headlines. Some of the largest, most visible and successful companies are being forced to publicly apologize while feverishly attempting to convince their customers that these unfortunate incidents are only isolated blips without any implication of systemic organizational issues. United Airlines, Uber, Amazon, Wells Fargo, the Academy Awards and even Sean Spicer, the spokesperson for the president of the United States, have faced public relations challenges that have created significant reputational issues and disruption to their organizations. So, whats going on here? Is it arrogance, weak leadership, corporate greed, human error or bureaucracy?

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYOr is it simply the newfound social media cautionary tale? Make no mistake: There is a connection among all of these communications crises. The reality is that organizations and people have not changed; there has always been corporate dysfunction. While evolving technology has increased the number of brand touchpoints available for instantaneous distribution of damaging content to millions of people, technology is not the root cause of this dysfunction. The very DNA of an organization is revealed through each and every touchpoint. When interactions reveal weakness, deeper problems within the organization are exposed. In an interconnected world where companies can fall from grace in hours, it has never been more important for leaders to address the common thread that creates corporate crises: a lack of clarity from the very core of the organization. Clarity is what happens when leaders take a holistic view of their strategy, people and story and ensure that there is alignment with each. An outcome of alignment is a sustainable, positive culture with strong leadership. With clarity, employees at every level know how to live out the vision, mission and purpose of the organization and understand the behaviors expected of them every day. This clarity provides the reason for all to come together and serve. It is this DNA that is the soul of an organization and that drives decision-making, profits and improved performance. Finding and leveraging that clarity is the difference between a passenger walking off an airplane and being dragged off. Clarity is the difference between a spokesperson communicating a difficult decision and creating an entirely new crisis. And it is the difference between being revered for your role as one of the leading technology disruptors in the world and being reviled for the way you treat your employees and customers. The digital economy has forced leaders to prioritize trust, transparency and authenticity. It is no longer possible to explain our way out of crises or dysfunction. We must understand that the most contrite apology statements and countless refunds and discounts will not fix crises that reveal systemic dysfunction. Even in companies that have clarity of purpose and vision and the roles of those involved in carrying out that purpose and vision there are bound to be some bumpy patches along the way. When that happens, go in search of whats right in the operation. When businesses want to improve, they typically focus on whats wrong or whats broken. At the time, it just seems to make sense to address head-on whatever difficulty has arisen. Instead, try flipping that approach on its head and asking: What are we doing right? Find the great nuggets inside the organization that can take it to a different place, a different height. If you understand where the company culture is getting it right, you can duplicate those practices in the areas where the problems lie. There are many examples of great companies that have successfully overcome public relations crises with openness, honesty and empathy. Their names might not be at as memorable. Thanks to the clarity within their organizations, their customers forgave them, and in many cases, the connection with those brands actually improved. The key to successfully managing any public relations challenge today is to find organizational clarity before the crisis happens. Have you?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Retirement Savings: Good and Bad NewsMost of us have to rely largely on ourselves for our retirement. Social Security, which recently offered average monthly benefits of $1,365 (thats about $16,000 per year), isnt likely to support anyone comfortably on its own. Unfortunately, according to the 2017 Retirement Confidence Survey, 24 percent of respondents reported having less than $1,000 saved for retirement, while a whopping 55 percent had less than $50,000. Millions of Americans seem headed for trouble. Fortunately, its not too late for most people to take steps to improve their financial future. Here are a few: Have a plan. Take some time to figure out how much money youll need in retirement and how you might amass that sum. Online retirement-planning calculators, such as the one at finra.org/ retirementcalculator, can be helpful. Make the most of retirement plans. You can contribute up to $5,500 ($6,500 if youre 50 or older) to a traditional or Roth IRA in 2017, getting a tax break in the process. If you have a 401(k) or 403(b) plan at work, you can sock away up to $18,000 in it this year ($24,000 if youre 50 or older), often collecting free matching dollars from your employer along the way. Contribute generously and regularly to such accounts for maximum retirement benefit. If you can sock away $8,000 annually for 15 years, for example, and it grows by an annual average of 8 percent, youll end up with more than $230,000. Work a few more years than you originally planned to, if you need to. A few more years of work means a few more years of contributions toward retirement savings and fewer years in which you withdraw from that nest egg. You might also benefit from employersponsored health insurance for a few more years, and you can make your ultimate Social Security checks bigger by delaying starting to collect them, too.

A Fruitless FlubI bought 1,000 shares of Apple a month before the first iPhone was released. The stock went up to approximately $178. After some time, it started going down, and I dumped it around $125. Big dummy. N., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. We hear from many people whose biggest investing regret is selling shares of Apple. In your case, your 1,000 shares would have split into 7,000 shares in 2014 and would have been worth more than $1 million at recent prices. Dont kick yourself too much, though, as most long-time investors have made costly blunders and many of those moves seemed quite reasonable at the time. After all, for many years Apple was a disappointment in the computing realm, with admired offerings but a paltry market share. There was no way to know for sure that the iPhone would be a massive hit. It was the same with other huge moneymakers for the company, such as the iPod, iPad and App Store. Few would have guessed that Apple would go on to have the highest market capitalization in the world. (Its market cap was recently $763 billion, well ahead of No. 2 Google parent Alphabet, at $674 billion.)As investors, we need to research and know our investments well, and hang on to them when we feel confident that they are healthy and growing. If you werent bullish on Apple, you were right to sell. Drive-ing GrowthData storage specialist Seagate Technology (Nasdaq: STX) can be a volatile stock, soaring when computer memory prices are high and swooning when the market is flooded with memory and prices are low. Recently, for example, with NAND memory supplies tight and hard drive prices rising, Seagate stock has surged rising more than 80 percent over the past year.Seagate has been going through a brutal period. Revenue fell by 19 percent between fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2016 as volumes and prices both slumped under the weight of declining demand for PCs. Momentum has been shifting for the better lately, though. Revenue ticked higher by 3 percent last quarter (over prior-year levels). CEO Steve Luczo and his executive team say theyre seeing signs that the business is stabilizing. They also believe that Seagates lower cost structure and improved portfolio of highcapacity drives should drive stable growth over the coming years.Seagates stock may not seem bargainpriced with its recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 17, but analysts expect strong growth, with earnings more than doubling over the coming five years. On top of that, patient investors can enjoy a hefty dividend that recently yielded 5.9 percent while they wait for long-term price appreciation. With Seagate generating more than $1 billion in free cash flow annually, the company looks poised to continue dividend payments. I trace my roots back to the 1906 founding of the Haloid Photographic Company, which originally sold photographic paper and equipment in Rochester, New York. 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. Today, based in Connecticut, I hold more than 11,000 patents and rake in more than $10 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Xerox) Understanding the P/E RatioQDoes a low P/E ratio indicate that a stock is going to go up? F.W., St. Augustine, FloridaANot quite. T he price-to-earnings ratio is a simple fraction, dividing a stocks current price by a year of its earnings per share (EPS). If Sisyphus Transport Corp. (ticker: UPDWN) is trading for about $60 per share and has a trailing EPS of $3, its P/E ratio is 60 divided by 3, or 20. The number shows how much youre paying per dollar of earnings. Thus, all other things being equal, a P/E of 15 is preferable to a P/E of 25, because youd be paying a lower multiple of earnings. A low P/E ratio doesnt guarantee future growth. It tends to reflect a possible bargain or a company on shaky ground. A steep P/E can reflect an overvalued stock thats more likely to stall or decline than to keep rising. Note, though, that P/E ratios vary by industry and that they rely on EPS, which can be manipulated to some degree by management. So expect low P/E ratios in capital-intensive industries such as manufacturing, and higher ones in lighter and fast-growing businesses, such as software. Only compare apples to apples. Be sure to evaluate other measures, too. ***QCan you recommend any good books on value investing? G.O., Adrian, MichiganATry The Little Book of Value Investing by Christopher H. Browne (Wiley, $25), Value Investing: From Graham to Buffett and Beyond by Bruce Greenwald et al. (Wiley, $22) or The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham (Collins, $23).

None of the major regions saw an increase in contract activity last month. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, decreased 0.8 percent to 108.5 in May from a downwardly revised 109.4 in April. The index is now 1.7 percent below a year ago, which marks the second straight annual decline and the most recent since November and December of last year. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says its clear the critically low inventory levels in much of the country somewhat sidetracked the housing market this spring. Monthly closings have been oscillating back and forth, but this third consecutive decline in contract activity implies a possible topping off in sales, Mr. Yun said. Buyer interest is solid, but there is just not enough supply to satisfy demand. Prospective buyers are being sidelined by both limited choices and home prices that are climbing too fast. The persistent housing shortages seen in several markets are most severe in the lower price ranges, he added. Thats very apparent when looking at the percent change in closings in May compared to a year ago. Sales of homes under $100,000 last month were down 7.2 percent from last year and up only 2.0 percent for those between $100,000 and $250,000. In higher price brackets, sales expanded incrementally all the way up to massive increases of 26.0 percent for homes priced between $750,000 and $1 million and even more for those $1 million and up (29.1 percent). Weaker financial and economic confidence could also be playing a role in the slowdown in contract activity. NARs most recent quarterly Housing Opportunitiets and Market Experience survey found that fewer renters think 2224 Residence CircleFresh, clean and transitional are just a few words to describe this lakefront villa in Grey Oaks Golf & Country Club. There are three bedrooms plus a den, 2 baths, a two-car garage and a golf cart garage. Details include 14-foot coffered ceilings, rich wood floors and clean lines with contemporary coastal hints. Built-in California closets, natural gas, double ovens, on-demand hot water heater, water purification, impact windows and built-in outdoor kitchen are just a few of the extras. Massive windows let in the light and frame the view to the pool and lake from the entire rear of the residence. Newly planted hedges provide privacy, and an expanse of grass is perfect for the family pet. The award-winning Grey Oaks Country Club has recently completed a multimilliondollar renovation to its pool, casual indoor/ outdoor restaurant and bar, tennis center, golf facility, playground and wellness center. Krista Fraga of Premier Sothebys International Realty has the listing for $1,299,000. For more information, call 434-2424 or email Krista.email@example.com. House Hunting COURTESY PHOTOSSEE NAR, B8

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYits a good time to buy a home, and respondents overall are less confident about the economy and their financial situation than earlier this year. The lack of listings in the affordable price range is creating lopsided conditions in many areas where investors and repeat buyers with larger down payments are making up a bulk of the sales activity, Mr. Yun said. Meanwhile, many prospective first-time buyers cant catch a break. Prices are going up and theres intense competition for the homes theyre financially able to purchase. Existing-home sales are forecast to be around 5.63 million this year, an increase of 3.2 percent from 2016 (5.45 million). The national median existing-home price this year is expected to increase around 5 percent. In 2016, existing sales increased 3.8 percent and prices rose 5.1 percent. A much higher share of homeowners compared to a year ago think now is a good time to sell, but until they do, sales will likely stay flat and low inventory will keep price growth moving swiftly, he said. The PHSI in the Northeast decreased 0.8 percent to 96.4 in May, but remains 3.1 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index was 104.5 in May (unchanged from April), and is 2.8 percent lower than May 2016. Pending home sales in the South declined 1.2 percent to an index of 123.4 in May and are now 1.4 percent below last May. The index in the West subsided 1.3 percent in May to 98.6, and is now 4.5 percent below a year ago. NARFrom page 1Jackie Kennedy spent her teen years here; now Steve Case of AOL has it on the market TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COM Even though she was the First Lady for less than three years, Jackie Bouvier Kennedy is one of the most famous of the presidents wives in U.S. history. Jackie was 13 when her mothers marriage to Standard Oil heir Hugh Auchincloss precipitated a move to his home in McLean, Va., in 1940. The Merrywood estate and the wholesome family environment were a far cry from the turmoil Jackie and her sister Lee experienced in her parents Manhattan and Long Island homes where their fathers drinking and extramarital affairs kept the household in constant conflict. Jackie slowly started to blossom at Merrywood. She graduated from George Washington University in 1951 and when to work for the Washington Times Herald as a roving reporter In 195 2, she met Congressman John F. Kennedy, whom she married in 1953 after he had been elected as United States senator from Massachusetts. Living at Merrywood was the catalyst that put Jackie in the right place at the right time to eventually become the 35th First Lady of the United States. In Washington, D.C.s most elite suburb, Merrywood was built in 1919 on 46 acres above the banks of the Potomac that extended to the waters edge. The property now consists of a more manageable seven acres. It has changed ownership several times and is being sold by its current owner, America Online co-founder Steve Case. The 23,000-square-foot, four-level mansion has nine bedrooms, 13 baths and an indoor swimming pool. It has been extensively renovated and updated with original architectural details carefully preserved. Outside are terraces for dining and entertaining, a full outdoor kitchen and various vegetationenclosed garden rooms along with a terrace overlooking the river. The grounds also include a tennis court and an outdoor swimming pool. The property is co-listed for $49.5 million by Juliana May, JLL and Mark Lowham of TTR Sothebys. GORDON BEALL / COURTESY PHOTOS

B16 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSeaglass models scheduled to open 4th quarter this yearWith construction of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay on schedule for completion in just 11 months, The Ronto Group announced three furnished Seaglass models are expected to be open for viewing in fourth quarter of this year. The model interiors will include finishes now on display at the Seaglass Design Studio located at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive in Bonita Bay. The 3,088 square feet 804 tower residence floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Robb & Stuckys Susan J. Bleda ASID and Rachelle Porcos sophisticated design for 804 will provide exceptional livability. Set against a background tone of soft sandy bisque, their color palette will include light creams and whites for a fresh aura. Muted accents of frosted glass will be layered with matte gold and silver metallics to evoke a sense of the shimmering sea and wave-smoothed seaglass. Furnishings will be clean lined with fabrics that include the textural diversity of leather against cotton and linen. In the living area, Bleda and Porcos plan calls for a 10-foot wide fireplace within a built-out section of wall that will be adorned with glistening wallpaper. The fireplace surround will be clean and contemporary. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create bright display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top again evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore. To highlight the adjacent dining area and create an intimate setting within the larger space, Bleda and Porco have designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers for a truly distinctive look. The tower residence 306 floor plan offers 3,421 square feet under air and 525 square feet of outdoor covered terrace space. The great room plan includes three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom, three-and-a-half baths, a large island kitchen and dining area, and a private elevator lobby. The design created by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer of Renee Gaddis Interiors includes an optional fireplace and a dry bar with wine storage. Gaddis has incorporated architectural details in the design, including ceiling and millwork details. Gaddis design will showcase classic style with a contemporary edge. She will incorporate various wood tones, mixing light and dark for eclectic charm, and her color palette will be based on cool matte blue grays. The flooring will be a warm wood tone. The wall tones in the living areas will be clean gray. A ceiling design in the dining area and kitchen will incorporate a double-step detail with drywall beams. The dining area between the kitchen and great room will feature a rectangular table that will seat eight. The kitchen will present a fresh aura with light countertops. The great room will feature another ceiling detail in a checkerboard style and multiple seating areas. A fireplace clad in marble will provide the focus for the television viewing area. Sliders will open to a terrace where the owners will enjoy the views and an al fresco Florida lifestyle. This generous space will accommodate a grill zone with a dining table and chairs for six and a conversation lounge area with an L-shaped sectional sofa and a round cocktail table. The tower residence 605 floor plan offers 2,889 square feet plus 464 square feet of covered outdoor terrace space. The open-concept plan features a private elevator lobby. A gallery hallway leads from the foyer to a living area with a great room, gourmet kitchen, dining area, and a sitting area. The great room, dining area, and the owners suite open to a terrace with spectacular views. The plan includes two guest bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The designers transformed one of the guest room spaces into a study. Cinnabar Designs Diana Hall, ASID and Laurie Walter, ASID have taken their 605 design inspiration from the name of the high-rise tower. With a palette of tonal neutrals and the liberal use of sea glass aqua and beige accents, the residence will provide a framework for the views. The designers plan includes a contemporary approach to create a sense of anticipation from the private elevator foyer, through the hallway, and into a great room with breathtaking west-facing views. The flooring will be done in light Italian porcelain with a tracing of pale gray. In the great room, the designers envision a semicircular sectional done in textured soft beige fabric and accented with sea glass toned pillows. They also plan to include a Lucite and glass cocktail table to anchor the space. The shape of the sofa will allow 270 degree views of the surrounding area. Two rounded back swivel chairs are planned to be set with a small table by the west window to allow sunset viewing. The feature wall will be designed to include a custom wood built-in and will incorporate a low media console in driftwood beige and white lacquer finish.

Kalea Bays community amenities popular with buyersTower 2 contracts remain strongIf 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 adultsonly 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.

Stephanie Hughes/Sunshine Sally. 90 pages. Paperback, $7.99. With this title, Fort Myers resident Stephanie Hughes begins a series that will please both true-crime addicts and more restrained followers of crimes that have become markers of our crime-riddled times. For the most part, Ms. Hughes selects crimes that have already received the attention of authors and filmmakers. Such endeavors have amped up the celebrity of crimes even if the criminals or victims were not celebrities to begin with. Ms. Hughes offers a multi-part primer to help readers remember and understand and perhaps further explore major New York crimes over two decades. She writes for the armchair sleuth who, if in New York, can of course visit the crime scenes and other important locations just by Googling the provided addresses. For the rest of us, she provides photographs (many of which she took) not just of the key locations, but in the context of the immediate neighborhood. Of course, photos of the victims, criminals, and others important to the case are also provided. Aside from the visuals, Ms. Hughes offers: an overview of the crime story; thumbnail biographies of the key players, including law enforcement officers and witnesses; and complete addresses and histories of the locations that housed or were otherwise connected with the crime. Precise dates and times? Theyre here as well. Eleven chapters, each covering a major New York crime (or possible crime), provide a spectrum of possibilities. One examines the fate of Frank Olson, a CIA scientist who became involved as a test subject in experiments with psychedelic drugs being conducted at the U. S. Armys Fort Detrick in Maryland. He suffered terrible effects. In November 1953, sent by his superiors to a meeting in New Yorks Hotel Statler, he crashed through a 13th floor window to his death on Seventh Avenue. Suicide? Accidental fall brought on by the narcotics? Or a murder to shut him up about what the government was up to? Vicariously, you can find out for yourself. Did bestselling author Norman Mailer get off too easily for the stabbing of his wife at a party in the couples Manhattan condo? Look over the information Ms. Hughes presents and see what you think. A classic what really happened case is the March 1964 death of Kitty Genovese. What made this murder so astounding was not the gruesomeness of Winston Moseleys deed, but the claim that 38 or more people witnessed the murder and did not call the police. Mr. Moseleys life after incarceration is a story in itself. Here are some of the others: The assassination of Malcom X at a political rally; the French Connection drug bust; the 1967 Summer of Love murder of two flower children beaten to death in Tomkins Square Park; and the shooting of pop artist Andy Warhol. Many readers will appreciate the books design elements, including the intriguing blend of typefaces, the selection and layout of the photographs in the Locations sections and the evocative front cover. Those who want to look further into the cases Ms. Hughes has explored and outlined will appreciate her section on Resources and Additional Reading. The mentoring that Ms. Hughes is doing is likely to inspire many lovers of true crime mysteries to look more closely at the crucial elements of crime detection and to sharpen their own skills of deduction. On top of all this, its just great fun. Later this year, volume two in the series will appear, covering such 1970s crime-related figures as Frank Serpico, Klaus Von Bulow and Donnie Brasco.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYshe studied classical music, in hopes of becoming a concert pianist. She went to Juilliard for 1 years. But when the money ran out, she began playing at a nightclub in Atlantic City. Not wanting her mother to know she was playing the devils music, she changed her name to Nina Simone. At the insistence of the club owner, she began singing as well. She hadnt realized she had a voice. Sometimes I sound like gravel, sometimes like coffee and cream, she said of her singing. Shed take a song and transform it into her own statement. I Loves You Porgy was smooth, elegant, sophisticated. Her version of Aint Got No from Hair became a statement on racial injustice. She was known for songs such as Sinnerman, I Put a Spell On You and Strange Fruit. She was mercurial and had a temper; shed berate audience members for talking and would stop playing. The Oscar-nominated What Happened, Miss Simone looks at her troubled personal life and the tumultuous times in which she lived, her musical life and her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement. She wrote Mississippi Goddam, which some radio stations banned, not only for the word goddamn, but also for its racial content and also for lyrics such as, My country is full of lies I dont trust nobody anymore. How can you be an artist and not reflect the times? Ms. Simone asked. The film includes interviews with her daughter and her abusive husband, who was also her manager, as well as excerpts from Ms. Simones own diary. This compelling documentary looks at a complex woman who led a difficult, isolated life and was also full of beauty and talent. Her music and moving story reflects a powerful yet anguished soul. All Things Must Pass (2015)95 minutes, director: Colin Hanks All Things Must Pass is the story of Tower Records, known as the largest record store in the universe. It tells of its beginnings, its success and its downfall. Though it became an international business, making almost $1 billion in 1999, with 192 stores worldwide, it filed for bankruptcy in 2006. Tower Records was the vision of Russ Solomon, the CEO who opened the first store in Sacramento, Calif., in 1960. He went on to create a string of megasupermarkets for records with aisles and aisles of every conceivable type of album, some stacked on the floor waisthigh. Some stores were so big they had multiple floors. (The one in the East Village in New York City had four.) Its motto: No music, no life. Shopping at a Tower Records was a social experience, a place where musiclovers happily spent hours perusing albums. It even had its own magazine, Pulse. Clerks (who worked their way up to becoming managers and vice presidents) were passionate and knowledgeable about music and not just the Top 20 commercial stuff. There was no dress code. Working there was fun. This film by actor Colin Hanks is far from boring. Its not just the tale of an iconic chain store in a changing industry, but also relays the history of rock and roll, the passing of an era. In addition to those who worked there, interviewees include Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, David Grohl and record producer David Geffen, who all shopped there. (Mr. Grohl also worked there at one point, claiming it was the only place that would hire him with his long hair.) Elton John shopped at Tower Records weekly, calling it a ritual that I loved, comparing it to going to your favorite caf. He calls its closing one of the greatest tragedies of my life when it closed down, it really, really upset me. Poignant and heart-warming, All Things Must Pass reminds you of the communal aspect of record buying and of a time when rock n roll made you feel as if anything was possible and the sky was the limit. Found Sounds Bahia (2006)28 minutes, director: David ZuckerI came across Found Sounds Bahai purely by accident. This short documentary focuses on Lactomia, a group of kids in Candeal, in Bahia, Brazil, who use discarded objects to make instruments. Almost anything, it seems, can be used for percussion: pieces of scrap tin, lumber, cans, boxes, hubcaps, pipes. The band also recycles items to wear, designing outfits from plastic bags, potato bags, soda can tops, water bottle caps. Led by Jair Rezende, this creative group plays around the neighborhood, giving the kids focus and direction and keeping them from joining gangs. Lactomia even travels to New York City to play at Lincoln Center. Though not as polished a film, and feeling much too short, the drumming is mesmerizing and the way trash is transformed into art is astounding. Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015)105 minutes, director: Amy J. Berg Like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin is a rock icon who tragically died of an accidental heroin overdose at age 27. Janis: Little Girl Blue by Oscarnominated director Amy J. Berg, looks at the blues/rock singers life and career. She shows us the Janis we knew with the love beads and bracelets, feathers and furs, but also the ostracized girl growing up in the conservative, racist Port Arthur, Texas, of the 1940s and s. This documentary contains concert footage, including Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock, but also gives us a behind-the-scenes look at this troubled musician who never seemed to find the love and acceptance she craved. We get to see baby photos of Janis and childhood pix, including, it looks like, a photo of the artist in a Brownie outfit. Snippets from letters she wrote as well as interviews with her younger sister and brother give insight into her struggles and demons. She had questions about her own desirability, her sister Laurie Joplin says. Were told that Janis loved rocking the boat and was kicked out of the church choir not because of her voice, but because she wouldnt follow directions. She sang in a bluegrass group before making her way to San Francisco and finding her own tribe. But despite the camaraderie and the fame she enjoyed (her Cheap Thrills album went gold in three days, she was on the cover of Newsday magazine as Queen of the Blues), she always felt like an outcast. Janis was most alive and free onstage, but as someone points out in the film: when the show is over the audience leaves and youre left with yourself. Janis: Little Girl Blue is a modernday Greek tragedy, a singers life cut short just as she was finding her own voice and reaching her potential. Just Like Being There (2013)83 minutes, director: Scout Shannon Just Like Being There is an intriguing journey through the world of gig posters. Whats a gig poster? The people who design them have various answers. Jermaine Rogers calls gig posters some of the purist pieces of modern folk art out there. And Paloma Chavez says, A gig poster is something that is ultimately an advertisement, but when its a successful advertisement, its transporting you into that sound and that feeling of being in that crowd, in that dark cavernous arena and watching the band in front of you. Simply put, gig posters are creatively designed screen-printed posters that tell you when and where your favorite indie band is going to be playing. Theyre highly popular and even collectible, with some selling for thousands on eBay (something the designers feel negative about.) Its a mixture of pure art, illustration, graphic design and music. Just Like Being There interviews those whove designed posters for groups such as Spoon, Okkervil River, The Hold Steady, Tokyo Police Club, Arcade Fire, Ted Leo, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, Death Cab for Cutie, The White Stripes and St. Vincent, just to name a handful. The images are as unusual and unconventional as the music. The documentary focuses mainly on gig posters for indie rock bands. Most of the designers are male and at least five or six of them are named Dan. The designers, such as Daniel Danger, Jay Ryan, Rob Jones and Dan Stiles, talk about their inspirations, and some demonstrate the process of screen-printing itself. We get to hear some of the bands talk about the artwork and see some of them performing too, including Spoon, Nada Surf, Ted Leo, Mogwai, The Thermals, Okkervil River and Tokyo Police Club. Watching Just Like Being There is like being taken by the hand through various poster designers studios and given a private viewing of the work. Its a tribute to the new renaissance of rock posters and the creative minds behind them. DOCSFrom page 1

H00616 8/16 BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comThis year, to mark the Summer Solstice the longest day of the year I chose a Florida Keys getaway with the shortest travel distance: Key Largo. Its only a two-hour, 10-minute drive from West Palm Beach. The islands unobstructed sunset views are among its biggest attractions. I celebrated the setting sun on the beach at Playa Lago Resort & Spa (www. playalargoresort.com), a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel and the first new resort built in Key Largo in 20 years. Its at mile marker 97 on the Florida Bay side of the Overseas Highway on 14 waterfront acres once home to a campground and RV park. Tin roofs, large balconies with white railings and the classic eyebrow-style roofline typical of vernacular Key West architecture can be found on the resorts four wings, 10 two-story cottages and a three-bedroom beach house. The lobby sparkles with terrazzo floors, a dramatic spiral staircase to the lower level and a cheese-hole wall leading to Las Olas ceviche bar. A central fountain surrounded with lanterns and a circle of hanging chairs made of rope and resembling fish net show the lobbys subtle nautical theme. Guest rooms are large, with high ceilings and wood paneled walls mimicking the wall decking of old clipper ships. Floors are tiled in wood-washed porcelain. Area rugs and accent furniture reflect a neutral color scheme. The resort has several restaurants: Las Olas Ceviche Bar, LaMarea for breakfast, and the al fresco Sol by the Sea, built around an old boathouse on the water. Its walls are covered in reclaimed buoys for a touch of barefoot luxury. All three eateries are very good, but for its seafood menu and Keys ambiance, Sol by the Sea, overlooking a 22-slip marina, cant be beat. The manmade beach has plenty of lounge chairs, hammock pods and kayaks and paddleboards. I hung out on the beach, splashed in the calm clear waters of Florida Bay and swam in a sparkling zero entry lagoonstyle pool before stretching out on a lounge chair to soak up the sun. I didnt have time to try out the fitness center, but did take an hour for a reflexology treatment much more than a foot massage in the resorts Ocean Spa. Absolutely divine! While enjoying dinner at Sol by the Sea, I watched the sun set on the longest day of the year. But it ended all too quickly for me! Top reasons to go to Key LargoPlaya Largo is one of my favorite reasons to go to Key Largo. Here are five more: 1. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park (www.pennekamppark.com). Take a glass-bottom boat tour for a view of the coral reefs and underwater park, home to Christ of the Abyss, a 4,000pound bronze sculpture of Jesus Christ standing under 25 feet of water. 2. Dolphin Cove. Swim or snorkel with Flippers friends in a natural lagoon at Dolphin Cove (www.dolphinsplus.com). Besides getting up close with dolphins, you can get to know some friendly sea lions, too. 3. Florida Keys Wild Bird Center (www.fkwbc.org). The nonprofit organization rescues, rehabilitates and releases native and migratory wild birds that have been harmed or displaced. Stroll along the sanctuary boardwalk and see what winged creatures fly in to greet you. 4. Silent World Dive Center (www. silentworld.com). Scuba divers already know this place. It offers daily dive and snorkel trips to the most popular dive sites in the Upper Florida Keys. Drinks are complimentary and night dives are available. 5. The restaurants. In Key Largo, you can go out and reel in your dinner or find some mighty good seafood at local eateries. I recommend Sol by the Sea (www.playalargoresort.com/sol-bythe-sea), a photogenic beach shack at the edge of a pier where motor yachts are docked. Try the blackened grouper and conch fritters, for starters. Other popular island eateries include Ballyhoos (www.ballyhoos restaurant.com) for stone crabs, The Fish House (www. fishhouse.com) and Encore for snapper, mahi-mahi grouper and Florida lobster, and Snappers (www.snapperskeylargo. com) for its (pet-friendly) tiki bar and yummy fish sandwiches. New luxury resort a compelling reason for a Key Largo getaway COURTESY PHOTOS A beach view at Playa Largo. MARY THURWACHTER / FLORIDA WEEKLY The resort has pools, cabanas, fire pits and watersport programs including kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, diving, boating an ocean excursions. An aerial view of Playa Lago Resort & Spa. The resort has 144 rooms and suites and 10 private bungalows on 14 beachfront acres in Key Largo.

Locals Favorite HAPPY HOUREVERY DAY 11AM-7PM$10.99 BABY BACKWEDNESDAYAVAILABLE ALL DAY $1.00 TACOSTUESDAY2PM-CLOSE CONTRACT BRIDGETheres many a slip ...BY STEVE BECKERSidney Lenz used to tell the story of a hand he played in the days of auction bridge. If the bidding seems absurd, it can be explained by remembering that in auction, the bidding structure was far different from what it is today in contract bridge. In those days, a game or slam bonus was awarded whether or not it was bid provided the number of tricks a declarer took added up to a game or slam. Lengthy bidding sequences were unusual, and opening with one notrump was a very common practice, regardless of distribution. Lenz (West) led the queen of hearts, disregarding partners spade bid. East, after communing with himself at length, signaled with the ten instead of playing the ace. Declarer heaved a huge sigh of relief, won the heart with the king and cashed six diamonds and six clubs to score a grand slam. East could have turned the result completely around had he played the ace of hearts and caught the king. On the ten-of-hearts return by East, Lenz could overtake with the jack and lead a low heart to Easts seven. Easts queen-of-spades return would then allow Lenz to cash his hearts and return a spade, whereupon East would run his spades and the defenders would score all 13 tricks. You dont often see a hand where a defenders misplay costs his side 26 tricks but, for whatever its worth, this is one of them. It is, though, a feat not worthy of emulation.

Put an afternoon at the movies on your summer dance card BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comGrab some popcorn, settle in and let a classic twosome of twinkle toes knock your socks off at the FGCU Renaissance Academys summer classic film series featuring the best romantic comedies starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Screenings at the FGCU Naples Center begin at 2 p.m. on select Fridays through August. Film aficionado Steven Mutart will introduce each film and lead a postscreening discussion. Their style and grace is timeless, Mr. Mutart says about the iconic dancing duo. These movies were all made before I was born and Im approaching 80. Ive been fascinated with them since the 1950s. While Mr. Astaire and Ms. Rogers each had irrepressible charm and charisma, their chemistry together was nothing short of incredible. The radiate onscreen. Theres just 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.Heres the lineup: 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 husband-andwife 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. Popcorn, soft drinks and coffee provided. For more information or to register, call 434-4737 or visit www.fgcu.edu.

It starts slow, but its fun to watch the story twist and the third act packs a wallop. Rated R.Transformers: The Last Knight (Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock) Once again the Autobots get Mark Wahlbergs help in saving the world from the Decepticons. Its understandable if youre expecting this fifth installment to be terrible, but its actually pretty amusing. The story is more clever than you expect, and the visual effects and action are strong. Rated PG-13.The Hero (Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman) An aging former movie star (Mr. 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.Cars 3 (Voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Chris Cooper) Old and nearing retirement, Lightning McQueen (Mr. Wilson) undergoes a new training regiment that will help him keep up with younger, faster cars. Much of the story is adult-themed, so it might be a tough sell for kids, but then this is Pixar, which never seems to have trouble selling anything. Rated G.Beatriz At Dinner (Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton) A masseuses (Ms. Hayek) car breaks down at her wealthy clients (Ms. Britton) home, so shes invited to stay for a dinner party that night, where she butts heads with a real estate mogul (Mr. 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.The Mummy (Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe) Treasure hunter Nick (Mr. Cruise) accidentally wakes a mummified princess (Ms. 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 (Ms. Mara) and her bombsniffing 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.Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, David Thewlis) An American soldier (Mr. Pine) crashes on warrior princess Dianas (Ms. 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 Ms. Gadot is really coming into her own as Wonder Woman. Rated PG-13.

NoAfter two hugely successful movies and a Minions spinoff, Universals Illumination Entertainment still found a way to get Despicable Me 3 wrong. Obviously the filmmakers couldnt put all the focus on the beloved Minions (we have to wait until Minions 2 in 2020 for that), so instead they decided to give Steve Carell more to do. Or perhaps he demanded more to do. Regardless, having more of Mr Carell translates to more of the same, which is unfortunate because the new elements are fairly entertaining. At the start, Gru (Mr. Carell), his significant other Lucy (Kristen Wiig) and a few Minions are trying to stop villain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) from stealing a precious diamond. Bratt is a former s child star whose hit TV show was yanked from the air when he hit puberty. Poor kid, all he did was grow up. The rejection deeply scarred him, and now he vows revenge on Hollywood for suppressing what he believes is his rightful stardom. Accordingly, he wears a purple s jumpsuit, sports a mullet, rocks Reebok Pumps and comes with a personal soundtrack of s rock classics, including Michael Jacksons Bad and Van Halens Jump. This is a good, creative villain, voiced by South Parks Trey Parker with knowing affection for the s. Bratt is also quite clearly designed with parents in mind, while kids giggle at the Minions and the child-friendly silliness of the rest of it. Without a doubt, Bratt is one of the films highlights. And yet, directors Eric Guillon, Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin venture away from Bratt for long stretches to introduce Dru (Mr. Carell again), Grus long-lost twin brother who aspires to be a villain. Dru and Gru have different interests but are similar enough that they seem like one and the same, and in doing so everything about their storyline feels redundant. Worse, this sidelines Ms. Wiigs Lucy to essentially a mommy role looking after Gru and Lucys three adopted daughters, which is a waste of both Ms. Wiigs talent and what Lucy can bring to the story. Better integration of Ms. Wiig and Mr. Parkers characters, and less of Gru and Dru, would have served the narrative well. Naturally, plenty of time also has to be made for the Minions. Too bad they arent given more to do, as every scene theyre in feels arbitrary and obligatory. At one point they sing on a The Voice type TV show, and at another theyre in prison running the joint. At no point does their involvement feels essential or register as anything more than cute. That might be enough for youngsters in the audience, but its not enough to heartily contribute to the films overall quality. The animation in Despicable Me 3 is fine but unimpressive and, sure, there are a few laughs along the way. If the filmmakers had a better grasp of the narrative and played to its strengths, they could have been on to something here. Instead we walk out with a shoulder shrug saying, Meh, that was OK, and never think about the movie again. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com Did you know?>> Illumination Entertainments next lm is Dr. Seuss The Grinch, due Nov. 9, 2018.

C18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER Souvenirs of Mar-a-Lago and one of its first occupantsBefore Burt Reynolds was South Floridas movie star, there was Dina Merrill, daughter of cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and financier E.F. Hutton. I was honored to know Dina, who died in May at 93. She came of age at Posts Palm Beach estate of Mar-a-lago, now the winter home of President Donald Trump. Unlike other heiresses of her day, Dina wanted to work. She was blond, she was beautiful and she had the determination to forge a stage and film career despite having one very worthy adversary to that career her father, who wanted her to become a lawyer. When E.F. Hutton spoke, people listened. But not Dina, who took a cue from her mother and forged her own path, beginning an acting career in her early 20s before marrying and raising children. In the 1950s, at an age when most film stars of the day were moving into matronly roles, Dina Merrill was starring in such films as Operation Petticoat, with Cary Grant, and The Young Savages, with Burt Lancaster. By the time I came to know her, in 2012, Dinas acting career was over and she was creating watercolor paintings that were sold to raise money for charity. I interviewed Dina and her husband, Ted Hartley, for a story on an upcoming exhibition of her watercolors at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. When I walked into her apartment at The Breakers in Palm Beach, a couple of miles north of Mar-a-Lago, she sat there alone, smiled, shook my hand firmly, but said nothing. She had Lewy body dementia, and that day was not one of her better ones. But her blue eyes sparkled and matched the colors of the ocean and the sky beyond. Dina gradually opened up and told me how she and her father had set out from Sea Cloud, the family yacht, in a longboat in the Galapagos Islands to get a tortoise for soup for her mother. They snared a tortoise, but the reptile, named Jumbo, became a pet rather than soup. Jumbo was still alive 80 years later at a park in Hawaii, her husband said. She also lit up when I told her about some linens I had that came from the storerooms at Mar-a-Lago, including some tablecloths from Sea Cloud I later donated to the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. There, curator Debi Murray figured out that those tablecloths had a motif of signal flags that spelled out Davies, Marjorie Merriweather Posts married name at the time. There were other pieces as well, including napkins that bore monograms with the initials of Post and her third husband, Ambassador Joseph Davies, all beautiful, elegant and of the best quality. The same could be said for Dina, who is remembered fondly in Palm Beach my friend Elizabeth, who worked at Elizabeth Arden, tells how the masseuses would jockey to work on Dina when she came to the salon simply because she was so nice. I agree, because beauty, class and kindness always endure. f i s P Y 2 scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Where: The Lords Places Joshua Thrift Store, 7600 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-537-4666 or www. thelordsplace.org. Paid: $3 apiece The Skinny: I had owned a set of these damask napkins that I later donated to the Historical Society of the Palm Beaches. But I was pleasantly surprised to see two of them hanging on a rack at a thrift shop. People like Marjorie Merriweather Post entertained on a grand scale and ordered sets of dinnerware and linens in the dozens. You can see the M and the P of her first and last names entwined with the D of her third husbands last name, Davies. They divorced in the 1950s and many of these pieces went into storage. Donald Trump auctioned off items from the storerooms at Mar-a-Lago in 1995; things that didnt get sold at auction were sold in a garage sale of sorts and staff also were allowed to help themselves. Thats no doubt where these came from. THE FIND:A pair of Mar-a-Lago napkins COURTESY PHOTOThats me with Dina Merrill and her husband, Ted Hartley.

HAPPY HOUR 5-7PM CELEBRITY EXTRALast Man wont be making new stand BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: My husband really enjoys Last Man Standing, and he was bummed when he heard it had been canceled. Any chance another network will pick it up? Deanna R., via emailA: ABC announced in May during its upfronts for the following season that it would not renew the Tim Allen-starring comedy for a seventh season. Since then, there have been petitions to boycott the network, and some to bring it back to ABC or for another station to pick it up. Tim said he was blind-sided by the decision to cancel the series. CMT which brought ABCs Nashville back from the dead was in talks with Fox Broadcasting to move the sitcom to their network, but negotiations fell apart when CMT decided that the cost would be too prohibitive. If the series is being shopped to another network, its being kept under the radar. At this point, hope is looking dim that the show will go on. Q: I remember a while back you reported that they were seriously considering making a Downton Abbey movie. Is this still a possibility? Holly Jo L., via FacebookA: I am so excited to report that a followup movie to the hugely popular Downton Abbey series is officially in the works. Michael Edelstein, president of NBC Universal International Studios, told The Associated Press at the opening of Downton Abbey: The Exhibition in Singapore that the film has been in the works for some time, adding: We are working on getting the script right, and then weve got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But were hopeful to make a movie sometime next year." Q: Can you tell me when or if my favorite guilty pleasure, Fuller House, will be back for another season? Debbi T., via emailA: Netflix recently announced a premiere date for the third season of the sitcom redux of the late-1980s/early-1990s family sitcom hit. The first part of the 18-episode season will drop Friday, Sept. 22, which also happens to be the 30th anniversary of the series original premiere date on ABC. (If you don't want to do that math, that was back in 1987.) The second part of the season will premiere sometime in December. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber all will return, and Im sure we'll get a Bob Saget and/or John Stamos appearance here and there. You can stream seasons one and two now on Netflix if you need to catch up or refresh your memory before September.

This July 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.

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.

The Menu: www.epiphanyglutenfree.comThe Details: Summer is long, especially when youre a boy whose mother decided to let you have a long break before starting camp and she makes you run laps around the neighborhood each morning. This is my poor boys situation, and because he isnt complaining, I thought his good humor should be rewarded with a token of my appreciation. So off we went to Epiphany for an early afternoon treat. While the bakery does have a storefront location, it is currently under construction and they dont use it, instead selling select packaged treats on the sidewalk outside. No matter, sweets travel just fine. We brought home chocolate chip cookies for the boy and orange-cranberry bread for any random occasion happening in the next few days. The cookies (with tapioca, sweet rice flour and brown rice flour in place of wheat flour) were an instant hit and were deliciously indiscernible from their traditionally composed species. And the bread which I discreetly tore into for the sake of this column was light, citrusy and shockingly good (again, wheat flour is replaced by brown rice flour, white rice flour, almond flour, tapioca and potato starch). One More Thing: Once construction is finished, people can purchase traditional bakery treats alongside items like turkey potpie, pizzas, paninis and hot breakfast sandwiches. Opening day, however, is still to be determined. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com
C30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 3 U.S. LOCATIONS NOW OPEN NAPLES (Next to The Wine Loft) // SARASOTA // MIAMI Positano Meets Naples CLOTHING BOUTIQUE FOR WOMEN, CHILDREN & MEN VINOSecond labels the best-kept secretWe all want to enjoy great wine, but not all of us want to fork over a mortgage payment for a big Bordeaux or Super Tuscan. Fortunately, there are less expensive alternatives. I suppose there are people who drink major bottles as an everyday matter. One thousand dollars to them is like $10 to the rest of us. Just a matter of scale and proportion. But those people dont live at our house. We divide our meager collection into maybe three parts. Everyday drinking wines, like the corks we pop when we get home from work after a bad day or any kind of day. These are generally under $25 a bottle. Somewhat special wines that well enjoy if some part of our lives has gone exceptionally well that day or week. We signed a new client, received some good news, like that. The collectibles. These are wines weve purchased over the years through retailers or at auction that have increased insanely in value. Maybe we were lucky enough to pay $100 for a bottle thats now worth 10 times that. These we open only to celebrate anniversaries, births or in the company of people who open similar bottles for us. But its still possible to find and enjoy high quality wines made by globally famous wineries. Theyre called second and even third labels. World-class wineries such as Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Margaux or Screaming Eagle carefully sort their grapes by hand during harvest. Since grapes dont ripen evenly in bunches, this is a painstaking and laborious process. The first quality grapes are selected for the major label. The remaining grapes are sorted again, and the really unripe ones are pulled out and discarded. The rest are retained and vinified for the second label, which is sold at a fraction of the price. For example, a bottle of 2005 Chateau Margaux, a Grand Cru Bordeaux, costs around $700. Their second label, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, is going for about $170. Not cheap, but not completely outrageous.Heres a bit of help for when youre ready to buy something really nice, but not insanely priced, for that birthday, anniversary or holiday. The most highly prized and expensive Bordeaux wines have second labels, such as the abovementioned Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, Carruades de Lafite, Les Forts de LaTour, and La Mission Haut Brion. Other well-known Bordeaux producers offer second labels such as Echo de Lynch-Bages. Not to be outdone, Italian premium winemaker Sassicaia offers Guado al Tasso, which is priced at a fraction of its top-end wine. In America, things are a bit different. Wineries generally make several wines in many price categories. There is Caymus, which is a reasonably priced California Cabernet at about $65. Then theres Caymus Special Selection, which will set you back over $250. So be aware of these comparative bargains, and sample a few on those occasions that call for something a bit more special. Heres just the kind of second label to look for: Le Volte dellOrnellaia Red Blend Tuscany 2015 ($30) The top wine from Ornellaia sells for around $250 a bottle, so this is one of its value labels and it is a value. Dark ruby color in the glass with interesting aromas of milk chocolate and faint pine. Dark red plum on the palate, along with wet stones and bright mixed fruit. Very drinkable young, and great wine for the price. WW 90. Also from Ornellaia, theres Le Serre Nuove $75 A bit higher priced, but this wine has outscored even the top Bordeaux in competitive tastings for many years. Medium ruby color with lots of red berries and fine, silky tannins. WW 95.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: A restaurant menu we saw had a listing for Draft Wine. I had never heard of it so I ordered a cab/syrah/merlot blend called Triple Threat. The waiter didnt know what draft was or the winery this came from. It was surprisingly pleasant. Have you heard of draft wines before? Marna L., SeattleA: Some very prestigious wineries are now putting their wine in kegs for use in restaurant by-the-glass service. This preserves the wine much better than leaving opened half-bottles standing around, and does not affect quality. I wouldnt be hesitant to order a draft wine anywhere its offered.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINERoys sticks with familiar Pacific Rim fareNo matter how many times Ive eaten at Roys over the years, I still look forward to experiencing new flavors and being treated royally by the restaurants impeccable wait staff. That was 2012, the last time I visited Roys in Bonita Springs. In the five years since, some things have changed and some things have stayed the same for the chain founded in 1988 by celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi and later absorbed by Bloomin Brands Inc. (parent company of Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill). That corporate restaurant giant sold its interest in Roys two years ago. A year ago, the Sarasota Roys closed after nine years and this past April the Naples location let its lease lapse after a decade in business. The doors remain open at Floridas original Roys, launched in 1998 at The Promenade in Bonita Springs. Little has changed about the sprawling interior and minimalist dcor, and the cocktail program is as innovative as ever. Many of the signature menu items Szechuan pork ribs, misoyaki butterf ish, Roys fish trio remain intact despite a change in the chefpartner responsible for interpreting and localizing the Roys Pacific Rim aesthetic. Those new flavors that used to inspire rhapsody are no longer new. And that royal treatment wed grown accustomed to? Not so indulgent anymore. Would you like more time with that? one ill-mannered server asked my companion while her fork was poised over her half-finished salmon fillet. Another vanished for a good while after delivering a bowl of seasoned edamame to snack on; we had asked for just a few minutes to read the cocktail list, but he didnt return very promptly. Our drinks finally arrived after our appetizers were served. A refreshing mango mojito ($12) honored Floridas best summer fruit, and a lavender sak sling ($12) gin blended with pale-purple floral-tasting syrup with a hint of cinnamon was an eye-catching and palate-pleasing surprise. Roys still has it when it comes to cocktails. Speaking of surprises, our server warned us they might be out of tuna when we ordered the Hawaiian ahi pok ($15). Roys out of tuna? Thats almost like Hooters running out of wings. Happily, this was not the case and we were able to enjoy a small pillar of diced ahi mixed with avocado and cucumber and garnished with bright red tobiko. A scant portion for the price, the pok was served on top of rice with crunchy free-form crackers for scooping. Less successful were the five lobster pot stickers ($13), crisply fried and served with a fiery miso-butter sauce. Un fortunately, we couldnt taste much lobster in the filling which hasnt been a problem in the past. Are they skimping on the pricey shellfish? Seafood has always been a strong suit at Roys, but there are selections from the farm including braised short ribs, pan-roasted chicken and several steaks. Mixed seafood and surf-and-turf plates are another option if you crave a taste of more than one item. As mentioned earlier, my companion opted for the hibachi grilled Atlantic salmon ($28). A teriyaki marinade and tangy ponzu sauce on the side enhanced the flavor of the perfectly moist, flaky fish. Completing the plate were a handful of pickled carrots, cucumbers and onions along with rice sprinkled with furikake, the Japanese seasoning of seaweed, sesame seeds and dried fish. That dishs rather spartan design was contrasted by the sun-splashed plating of the seared sea scallops ($34). A golden carrot puree with a smoky bacon undertone was swirled into a yellow scampi butter sauce and sprinkled with diced kabocha squash. Unfortunately, the five mediumsized scallops (not the showy U/10 size), were cooked a tad too long easy enough to do but a mistake you dont expect at a high-end restaurant. In an ironic twist, some of the charred brussels sprouts on the plate were nearly raw inside. The evenings inconsistencies could be an aberration, or they could portend larger issues beneath the surface. Theres been no general decline in online reviews in recent months, so lets hope for the former. And take comfort in dessert, such as the pineapple upside down cake ($11). Freshly baked, the brown-sugar pound cake was comfortingly warm and moist, with generous bits of caramelized pineapple. Good vanilla ice cream and a nest of toasted coconut complemented the cake. It was as good as it was in 2012 a sentiment I wish I could be apply to the rest of the Roys experience. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Roys>> Hours: 4-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 4-11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $8-$29; entrees, $26-$55 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Asian-Paci c cuisine >> Volume: High >> Parking: Mall lot >> Website: www.roysrestaurant.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 26831 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; 498-7697 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor Above: Lobster pot stickers are served with a chili-infused misobutter sauce.
