A9 I N S I D E Eti Et i Only a century ago, horses were almost as common in Florida as humans, essential for both food production and transportation. Although that way of life is gone, horses are not. This week we ask why, exploring the robust economy and culture of horses in the region, a culture that reaches directly into the editorial offices and lives of this newspapers staff. For some of us this story is personal because horses are part of everything we do every day. When I ride, every worry in my world is small.

The critics suggest Mr. Trumps speech in Poland and his sit-down visit with Vladimir Putin at the G-20-plus-Ivanka Summit amounted to a big fat giveaway: He surrendered more than 70 years of the American strategy championed by Democrats and Republicans alike to the anti-democratic world view of Putin. Mr. Putin went home a winner, they say. Lets consider that notion. Donald went easy on Vladimir, yes. But is that any reason to think he gave anything away? This is no more worrisome than thinking Neville Chamberlains soft-glove treatment of Adolph Hitler was a precursor to war and loss in 1937 and a mere 80 years ago. Remember that?Unfortunately the British prime minister ended up giving away the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia to Hitler because the Fuhrer reassured him thats all he really wanted: It should have been German anyway, he was a really nice guy, and Europe would be better off without war, living instead as one big happy family, Adolph said.He smiled, wiped the cream off his mustache with a linen napkin, thanked Mr. Chamberlain, and promptly swallowed Poland in a single gulp, finishing his hors doeuvres plate before getting down to the main meal. Trump no doubt knows all that. As long as we know our history, we will know how to build our future, he intoned in his eloquent address in Warsaw. Looking to our future, however, Mr. Trump ignored the big bite the Russians have just taken out of the American democratic process. Instead, he discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unit together with Mr. Putin, tweeting Sunday that the Russian leader vehemently denied attacking and manipulating the 2016 American elections. Putins denial was good enough for the president. He took the word of the former KGB agent and shook hands. Mr. Putin smiled, thanked him, agreed to quit bombing women and children in Syria this week, and wiped the cream off his lip with a linen napkin. Some of Mr. Trumps fellow Republicans didnt get the word, it seems. Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted the following response: Partnering with Putin on a Cyber Security Unit is akin to partnering with (Syrian dictator Bashar) Assad on a Chemical Weapons Unit. Dont worry, Sen. Rubio, the Donald has got this which is why hes encouraging Mr. Putin to play nice and help stop an assault on our civilization. The term seems to mean anybody who isnt Muslim, in Mr. Trumps mind even those who kill their political enemies along with reporters they dont like, rather than staging fake wrestling matches with them. So lets step back for a moment and consider two ideas: One, our civilization traditionally has used religion, authoritarian righteousness and expansion as reasons to abuse, enslave and kill countless human beings from Europe and Asia to the Americas. Thats not a lefty position, its just a historic fact. And two, Donald Trump grew up in moneyed New York. Such people are not rubes. They know which fork to use in high-etiquette settings. They know which wine goes with which course, either at Le Bernardin on Seventh Avenue, or in the state dining room at the White House. They can also drive a hard bargain. Since Americans did not drive a hard bargain last week clearly Donald Trump wasnt there, either speaking in Warsaw or visiting with Putin in Hamburg. But somebody was, somebody who looked like Mr. Trump. Its increasingly evident the president has hired and trained two doubles, each pasty, each orange, and each capable of jowly pouts. Men scrounged up from the long lunch-hour darkness of strip clubs in Cleveland or somewhere equally anonymous St. Louis, Kansas City, the butt end of Denver, east L.A. They take turns traveling for him, they meet with foreign leaders for him, they cant figure out how to shake hands or not to for him, and they fail to recognize the presidential limousine parked at the bottom of Air Force Ones steps when they return home to Andrews Air Force Base, for him. They have to be told to get in the damn car, instead of walking past it with an idiot vacancy that suggests advanced dementia. A reporter filmed such a scene last week, but it was a brilliant tactical move on Mr. Trumps part, like Muhammad Ali flashing that long left in a phantom jab back, then delivering a devastating right cross while dancing away. His enemies will underestimate him. How he plans to follow up the jab is anybodys guess, of course thats strategy, not tactics. And its not his strength. The presidents team was extraordinarily well prepared this time around. For the first time, the language his double used in Warsaw suggested a Churchillian awareness of the stakes, a blood-sweat-and-tears sense of climactic events an awarenes s utterly absent in any of the presidents earlier actions or words, not to mention in his grab-ass life.The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive, he thundered from the hilltop of history. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it? There are two other questions, as well: Exactly what part of our civilization are we preserving? And who, exactly, are those who would subvert and destroy it?

Its topic was the origins of the Earth, life and humanity. Two men took to the stage: Ken Ham, the founder of the Young Earth Creationist ministry in northern Kentucky, also home to his Creation Museum and theme park; and Bill Nye, the science educator and popular television personality, best known by his fans for his half-hour science series, Bill Nye, the Science Guy. Nyes live action science programs were broadcast for almost two decades on PBS and syndicated to local stations. Think of Nye as the progeny of Mr. Wizard, of Watch Mr. Wizard. The popular program taught science to kids on television in the s and s. His audience numbered in the millions and Mr. Wizard science clubs proliferated in the thousands nationwide. Like Mr. Wizards programs, Nyes science series effectively taught science to kids. His program earned critical acclaim and 23 Emmy nominations. Nye is a frequent lecturer and often laments to his audiences that science deniers undermine science education in the classroom and impede scientific advancements. Think about the consequences of believing or not believing in climate change science, and hes got a compelling point. Surveys report some 40 percent of Americans say they disbelieve factbased science. Its worrisome, says Nye, because the alternative pseudoscience promoted by religious fundamentalists is just plain wrong. He cites the overwhelming evidence supporting a fact-based explanation of how the Earth and life evolved. He uses the sciences to debunk creationism and intelligent design as alternative facts. Nye says it is imperative to protect the academic rigor of science education taught in public schools. But religious fundamentalists arent having it. And the science deniers who wear their skepticism to earn political points are the worst of all. They cynically and shamelessly exploit science denial for their own callow purposes. Nyes comments caught Hams attention. As a religious fundamentalist, his thinking is profoundly oppositional to that of Nye. His creationist ministry is based on a strict, literal interpretation of the Bibles Book of Genesis; i.e., God created the Earth in six, 24-hour days, making it about 6,000 years old. Humans appeared fully formed, just as they are today, absent any close encounters of an ancestral kind. Thus, evolution plays no part in the origins of humans; nor does their fullblown presence on the planet necessitate its accomplishment over a vast swath of geologic time. Nyes counters to Hams assertions are the product of fact-finding, evidence and scientific consensus. It sets the age of the Earth at about 4.5 billion years and some 60 million years separate the time of man from the time of dinosaurs. The debate between Ham and Nye did not change the mind of either. The controversy over evolution continues, now embroiling the science of climate change as collateral damage. Hams insistence that the laws of nature didnt apply 4,400 years ago, or 6,000 years ago, were extraordinary and unsettling... Nye said. He said the efforts to promulgate the teaching of YEC and creationism in public schools would erode Americas scientific leadership in the world and undermine the role of science in advancing Americas well-being. If the nation rejects factbased science, we are not going to move forward. Though the Supreme Court has barred teaching creationism in public schools, by the mid s, intelligent design took up the flag and promotes creationist ideas through other means. The antiscience movement is aided by opportunistic politicians who feign righteousness in defense of their cause. Recently Gov. Rick Scott signed into law HB 989. The Legislature approved the bill by a two-vote margin in the Senate. The new law allows any Florida resident (not just parents of school children) to object to the use of specific instructional materials in the public schools if they fail to provide a noninflammatory, objective and balanced viewpoint on issues. The National Center for Science Education said, uh oh to that. It warned educators and citizens that religious fundamentalists would leverage the meaning of a balanced viewpoint to challenge the teaching of evolution and climate change science in public schools. The law opens the door to intelligent design and Young Earth Creationism being taught on par with fact-based science in Floridas public schools. But it isnt science the fundamentalists want taught. It is science fiction. Email Leslie Lilly at firstname.lastname@example.org and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com The neglected ReaganDoes anyone really know Ronald Reagan? In his new book The Working Class Republican, a bracingly revisionist account of the 40th president, Henry Olsen answers no. One of the most astute political analysts at work today and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Olsen argues that Reagans politics bear the distinctive stamp of his origins as a New Deal Democrat. Olsens interpretation of what he calls Reagans New Deal conservatism is open to dispute. But he undoubtedly is correct that contemporary conservative politicians do Reagan and themselves a disservice by remembering him as an unremitting ideologue and tactical maximalist. As late as 1980, Reagan had still been a Democrat longer than he had been a Republican. As he put it, characteristically, in his 1984 acceptance speech, Did I leave the Democratic Party, or did the leadership of that party leave not just me but millions of patriotic Democrats who believed in the principles and philosophy of that platform? With an eye to these sorts of voters throughout his career and with a sensibility attuned to their concerns, Reagan didnt simply replicate the let-itall-hang-out, high-octane conservatism of Barry Goldwater. He never contested the idea that there should be a safety net. In his famous speech promoting Goldwaters candidacy in 1964, Reagan stipulated, Were for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we have accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem.That said, Reagan was hardly a friend of the welfare state. His 1964 speech attacked farm programs, government planning, welfare, the size and power of bureaucracy, and regulations that have cost us many of our constitutional safeguards. He extolled the common man, the forgotten American, and his innate dignity. In his first inaugural address, Reagan hailed the men and women who raise our food, patrol our streets, man our mines and factories, teach our children, keep our homes, and heal us when were sick professionals, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cabbies, and truck drivers. He didnt support tax cuts for the rich so much as tax cuts for everyone, and didnt obsess over entrepreneurship. He had a pragmatic cast. In his campaign for governor of California, he noted that public officials are elected primarily for one purpose to solve public problems. Hostile to taxes, he nevertheless raised them as governor of California in response to a budget crisis, and as president as part of a Social Security deal. A free trader, he brushed back the Japanese on trade. Reagans tone and program, coupled with his generational talent as a politician, allowed him to unlock the working-class vote in his races for governor and president. The Reagan Democrat has been part of our political vocabulary ever since. It is telling how President Donald Trump not having learned the purported lessons of Reagan was able to go and get these voters in a way that Republican politicians bound by Reaganite truisms were not. Reagan was a constitutional conservative, although an exceptionally gifted one who understood how to meet Americans where they live. In this important book, Henry Olsen reminds us how.

THE DIVA DIARIESMastering the perfect selfie its all about meWhile I realize that Im not 13, Im still determined to master the summer selfie. After a great many ridiculous and failed attempts, Ive concluded that taking selfies is a talent like being able to moonwalk or do bird calls. Some folks are just naturals at it while the rest of us fail no matter how hard we practice. I had a speaking engagement not long ago where I, along with several other speakers, were asked to send in selfies so the organizers could use them in promotional materials. I emailed back, You mean you want me to send in a professional headshot, right? I was told no. We want a selfie, said the perky organizer. Theyre so much more casual and youthful and fun. They may look fun, but theyre no fun to take especially if youre cursed with short arms like me. Honestly, when I look in the mirror, I dont appear to have crazily disproportionate arms that make me look like a human T-Rex, but when I attempt a selfie, my arms suddenly shrink to around six inches. For the selfie I was to turn in, I combed through social media for inspiration and found plenty of friends showing off the most flattering summer selfies at the beach, on boats and at barbecues. One friend was skilled enough to take a selfie with a fish hed just caught. And I have no idea how she did it, but another friend took a selfie that depicted her at the beach in a cute suit, while reading a book. Im assuming she has an extra arm that she normally keeps hidden under her clothes. Other friends, with extremely good skin and very small pores, are masters of the close-up selfie, but that one didnt work for me regardless of how many times I ran it through my phones softfocus filter. My girlfriend Valerie is traveling the world this summer and her arms are so long that shes able to take a selfie with the entire Red Sea in the background. Its remarkable. But she has nothing on my friend Don. He and his wife and two kids went to England in June and treated Facebook with family selfies, all four of them looking happy and fabulous with major landmarks like Buckingham Palace also in the frame. Due to my tiny-arm shortcomings, I decided to attempt the selfie where you stand in front of a mirror and snap a reflection of yourself. Seems easy enough my friend Audre makes it look effortless and posts one every few days to show us a new outfit or hip hairdo. But Im awful at this one. I cant figure out how to push the butt on on the camera while working my posture, sucking in my stomach and smiling at the same time. Its exhausting. My girlfriend Gloria, another selfie superstar, uses two hands and positions her phone from way above this makes her beautiful face look even more beautiful the angle accentuates her cheekbones and gives her a lovely glow. But when I try to use both hands and look upward, the result makes it appear that Im hanging precariously off a tall building. Luckily, I still have some time to master the perfect summer selfie. I could continue practicing or I could just give up and go buy an arm extender otherwise known as a selfie stick for a mere $7.99. I think Ill take the easy route to selfie perfection. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week. c t A a e r e e stephanieDAVIS email@example.com
A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYmetals in the water and the biology of given estuaries. It also offers the most recent look at remaining mangroves, wetlands and the extent of conservation lands in each of the estuaries. The estuaries include Coastal Venice, Lemon Bay, Greater Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound, the Caloosahatchee, Estero Bay, Wiggins Pass and the Cocohatchee, Naples Bay, Rookery Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands. The Report Card is also an action plan for government officials and for residents whose lives are wedded inevitably to the health of one water system or another. We want this to show a way forward, said Rob Moher, president and CEO of the conservancy, a powerful advocate for conservation and healthy resources. Weve gotten to a point where the goal is simply to prevent further degradation of the resources. We have to do that before we can improve them. The report includes specific pointers for policymakers, and for individuals living anywhere in the region. Both Pine Island Sound and the Ten Thousands Islands received the highest grades for wildlife habitat the only A+ grades but they earned a D and C+ respectively for water quality. Greater Charlotte Harbor received a B and a C +, but the Caloosahatchee received a D for both, as did Naples Bay. When we use pieces of this report to emphasize a point with policymakers it can resonate, and we hope help them think through the issues, explained Nicole Johnson, director of environmental policy at the conservancy, based in Naples. For example, Naples Bay is doing poorly in the water quality category, and conservation (acreage) in the Naples Bay watershed is only 1 percent of the total. One of the reports recommendations for policymakers is to support programs to acquire more conservation land or water. So Collier commissioners thinking about conservation might be aware that 68 percent of the county is in public ownership, Ms. Johnson added. But when they learn that only 1 percent of the watershed is conserved that helps. Up and down the coast, water systems have been pushed to the breaking point. While everybody knows that, the 2017 Report Card helps put it in perspective with solid, verifiable data. For example, a reader can learn here that from 2011 to 2016, there were 889 recorded cases of fish kills (sudden deaths of populations) in Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Lee, Manatee, Polk and Sarasota counties, where the watersheds in this report exist. Sarasota and Lee counties were at the top with 215 and 179. The causes were algae blooms, low dissolved oxygen concentrations, pollution and red tide events.Range of reactions While no one debates such facts, or argues about the number of jobs that depend on tourism in Florida (1.2 million), or the $11.5 billion impact of the marine industry just in South Florida alone, or the $9.3 billion impact of the commercial fishing industry, how to react and what to do about are sometimes contentious issues. Local and regional officials as well as state legislators from coastal districts all received copies of the report, issued both online and in print on June 6. (See the links that accompany this story to look at any or all of the report.) Some have glanced at it so far, they say, and reactions have ranged from ambivalence and cautious praise to admiration. If the intention of this report is honest and earnest, and not to be used as a (political) cudgel, it can be extremely valuable. You have organizations with good expertise on these issues, said Rep. Matt Caldwell, a District 79 Republican who is campaigning for commissioner of agriculture in 2018. Policymakers have good partners in some of these (environmental) groups. The conservancy has been at the forefront on the Edison Farms project, for example its a huge water quality benefit. I wish we could pay the right price for it but I leave that to the county. Edison Farms, owned by an out-ofregion lending company, is a 4,000-acre, 6.25-square mile parcel in the Density Reduction/Groundwater Resource area (the DRGR) of Estero now offered for sale with a $49 million price tag. There, developers have sought to build thousands of homes and establish commercial space. Conservationists, meanwhile, including the conservancy, have fought to permanently remove the land from the development roles. They celebrated a decision by Lee commissioners recently to offer $42 million to the owners, the highest of three appraisal prices. This is one of the largest opportunities well have from now into future, to make significant savings, said Commissioner Frank Mann. Any water in the southern part of the county finds its way to Estero Bay, and to a large extent much of that water will pass through Edison Farms. So we cant let it get developed, Mr. Mann said. We want it never to contribute to the pollution that developed lands all do to a greater or lesser extent. And that property does recharge and filter water through natural processes. By keeping it, we wont contribute to pollution, and it continues to recharge aquifers. There was no word at press time whether the owners, represented by Lee County based Realtors, Land Solutions Inc., would accept the $42 million offer. For Charlotte Commissioner Bill Truex, the report is a great guideline for us to try to review, understand and develop strategies to improve water quality in the harbor. We have the Charlotte Harbor area (B -, C +, Lemon Bay (B, D-), and the Coastal Venice area (C-, C-). What we send south can affect Pine Island Sound (D for water). So policymakers have to look at what they can do in their own areas to improve the situation. In his opinion, however, maybe half of them will glance at it I hope a lot more.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 NEWS A9the water really is. I think we can do better. I admire and complement the conservancy for taking the initiative. I would hope other officials state officials use this report, she said. We have challenges ourselves, here, in Naples Bay and Rookery Bay and this gives us a road map to identify accurately what the conditions of our water are, and to start addressing them as local officials. Im optimistic. I dont think Im a lone voice at all. Commissioner Burt Saunders was the first in the history of Collier to suggest taxes be used to preserve green space in the 1990s, in a program called Pennies for Paradise. It was rejected but other (programs emerged). He was the first one and he sits next to me up there. The sentiment of our people is such that they demand it. So if we listen to our constituents and understand how we use water and where it goes and I do think we do we can use this report to help ourselves. John Cassani, was named Calusa Waterkeeper early this year. The statewide nonprofit Waterkeeper organization appoints water experts to monitor individual water systems. Mr. Cassani is more optimistic about the reaction of private citizens to the report than he is about public officials. This report is helpful by letting the greater public understand whats happening on a regional scale, he explained. The public starts to add it up. I value boating, or fishing, or my property is on the water thats being degraded as a result of declining water quality. People need objective information to understand the magnitude of the risk and the problem. The conservancy has been really good about referencing their statements and basing their statements on science.Septic, for exampleOne of the key battles many officials are fighting is the resistance of some property owners to convert septic to sewer systems, or even to upgrade septic systems when they dont appear to be having trouble. The report even offers advice to individuals about maintaining clean and efficient septic systems. At the local level, weve been trying to improve water quality across the board, said Kevin Ruane, mayor of Sanibel Island. The island lies at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee where terrible algae blooms and outbreaks of red tide have occurred in recent years, not only choking the natural biology of the water systems there, but strangling tourism for periods of time the lifeblood of the island economy. Some of that is the result of beleaguered and poorly monitored septic systems all the way upriver to Lake Okeechobee, some 80 miles. Weve gone to various municipalities to promote conservation efforts, for example fertilizer rules or best management practices at marinas, or the value of converting from septic to sewer and if not, then determining what is the best kind of septic, he said. A self-described fiscal conservative and Republican, Mayor Ruane led a group of mayors to Tallahassee last year to insist legislators find a way to halt unseasonable floods of excess water from being released east and west from Lake Okeechobee by the Army Corps of Engineers, down both the St. Lucie and the Caloosahatchee systems. Those releases play a prominent role in water degradation, both in Charlotte Harbor and in the Indian River Lagoon near Stuart on the east coast. I dont have a problem with septics as long as they work and theyre being maintained, he said. But thats the problem, in the eyes of Commissioner Truex. We have to have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and do whats right on this issue, and conversion from septic to sewers is something a lot of people still dont think it is necessary. You think if youre not having a problem you can see, nothings wrong with your septic. But old systems that cause homeowners no problems often leak dangerously into water systems. You can take a beating for proposing we change this, said Commissioner Truex. Even the (federal) EPA says on its website that septic works, but they leave out rest of the story the systems have to be (state-of-the-art), they have to filtrate the solids out and be maintained. Those old systems are not working. According to state code, he said, the minimum distance any septic tank should be from the mean, seasonal highwater line (how far up in the soil water comes, on average) is two feet. But the new recommendations say five feet. So in Charlotte County well be putting in more monitoring stations for water quality, and thats a key to improving results.Advocacy vs. science, politicsNaples-based State Sen. Kathleen Passidomo, a District 28 Republican (Collier, Hendry and parts of Lee County), agrees. My take is they have done a lot of very good scientific research or gathering of data, so theres a lot of good information available in this report. I am particularly supportive of continuing to fund monitoring estuaries because of the degradation issue. One of the weaknesses in the report, according to the conservancy and others, is that water quality data is sometimes unavailable. Mr. Cassani said the reason is no mystery: Regulation has been diminished during the administration of Gov. Rick Scott. I think the GOP in Florida owns this issue now. Enforcement is almost nonexistent in the state and has been since Gov. Scotts administration took office. What do you expect? If youre not going to hold jurisdiction, youll see water quality decline. There is no pressure on jurisdictions to meet water quality standards. The state just isnt requiring these local jurisdictions to address issues seriously. Well focus on bringing more attention and more knowledge to areas that matter to public health issues such as bacteria, heavy metals and algal toxins in the water, he said of his organization. Its costly but we will start sampling for this information, said Mr. Cassani. Sen. Passidomo said she and other legislators need to separate advocacy from the science. I need to be able to look at technical information, the science behind the information, and then come to a conclusion as to how to handle these issues, she said. The conservancy, and rightly so, is an advocacy group. But thats not the thrust of a legislator we need to look at the science and make our decisions. The science is key at the conservancy but it goes hand in hand with advocacy, suggested Ms. Johnson. Communities understand their problems, for the most part, she said. But they may disagree about how to go forward, and how much to spend doing it. Sometimes, the question is unspoken, suggested Mr. Moher: Are we going to pay for the fix, or let our children do it? Action now is not only less expensive, but more honorable, said Ms. Johnson. The report card shows with a snapshot in time how severe problems are, but also it shows what can we do at a personal level, and what can be done at a governmental level. A lot, is the answer laid out neatly under such categories as Recommendations for people, and Recommendations for policymakers. But a report like this could seem a double-edged sword, Ms. Johnson acknowledged. We in Florida are promoting tourism and business, all of these things that use beautiful beaches and idyllic images to promote them, but the report card brings to the forefront another fact: There are major problems. This is one of the largest opportunities well have from now into future, to make significant savings.

If you have them in your life, you are richer because of it. dressage rider Cathy Cottrill Hannah Arnone and Nevada Jay Holmes of Triple J Ranch in Sarasota. physically, said Florida Weekly Publisher Angela Schivinski, a prizewinning barrel racer describing the threeplus hours per day she spends on and around horses, rather than in a gym or a shopping mall. If horses are therapeutic magic, theres a science in the magic, too. One person came to us unable to use words and her first words came on the back of a horse, recalled Melissa Missy Saracino, program director at Naples Therapeutic Riding Center, one of several nonprofit agencies in the region widely recognized as having extraordinary effects on the lives of people with special needs. What happened was, the movements of the horse stimulated her spinal cord, which goes to her brain and helped her get the words out. Susan Blackwell, a 20-year veteran of the horse business and managing partner of Calusa Equine Veterinary Services, a Lee County-based practice, puts it this way: Horses inspire independence, an active social lifestyle, positive mental health with stress reduction, a sense of freedom and power, and a close, therapeutic relationship between species that is often times indescribable. No wonder there are a lot of us horse lovers. But horses also demand daily work and sometimes-significant expense (the author of this story owns two). So why bother? Theres something about them that touches people. If you have them in your life you are richer because of it, said dressage rider Cathy Cottrill, our copy editor, who was riding before she could walk, owned her first horse at 12, and never looked back. Dressage, seemingly the most technical riding discipline, may also be one of the most difficult, requiring obedience, flexibility and balance in precise movements of the horse, signaled almost invisibly by the rider.Theres gold in them hillsFrom track racing and rodeoing to such sport disciplines as jumping, barrel racing, dressage, harness racing, trail riding or polo (played mostly on the east coast), the culture of horses is a bottom-line bonanza in the Sunshine State. Horses generate $6.5 billion per year of gross domestic product in Florida, according to the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Racing alone is worth more than baseballs spring training throughout the state some $900 million annually, including 12,000 jobs and $400 million in wages and benefits, reports Cummings Associates, economic analysts hired by the Florida Thoroughbred Racing Association. Goods and services for horses statewide, meanwhile, are worth about $2.2 billion a year, with 245,000 Floridians joined to the industry as owners or providers and workers. That includes 72,000 hands-on jobs and lifestyles ranging from large-animal veterinarians and feed-store owners to farriers, tack and equipment merchants, trainers and stable managers who feed, shelter, exercise and clean horses for owners who lack the space or the time to do it themselves. In practical terms, horse ownership is relatively expensive, ranging widely from owner to owner depending on level of involvement. Those who own horses without property may pay several hundred dollars per month to a stable that keeps, feeds and exercises horses. Feed, basic vaccinations and maintenance may amount to about $2,000 per year on the low end for those who keep horses, and depending on their need for vet services. For performance horses the cost is much higher. We have a lot of horse owners in the area but we arent economically bonded by any one type of horse ownership like Ocala with horse racing or Wellington with upper-level show horses, said Ms. Blackwell. While there are upper-level show horses in this area, most of the equine economy is family ownership. So every dollar spent on horse care is more of a luxury than a necessity.Horsewomen, and men, among usOne of the most widely known professionals in the region is Jay Holmes, manager and head trainer at the Triple J Ranch in Sarasota. Nationally celebrated for his ability to polish competitive champions in disciplines across the board, he helps horses and riders from the state and nation meet widely varying goals. I make my living on horses. I dont have anything, monetarily, that a horse hasnt provided for me. Theyre my life, Mr. Holmes said of his passion for the animal. So that horse will get everything Ive got. When I ride a new horse, Im looking for that horse to be the best it can ever be. He also wants the rider to be the best she can be on the best horse she can mount, as Rachel Widener of Buckingham has discovered. A home-schooled student who grew up riding, Ms. Widener, 17, won the Florida High School Rodeo Association Reined Cow Horse Championship last month, one of two Lee County riders to be named best in the state (Josie Adkins became the FHSRA State Champion Pole Bender). Mr. Holmes and a superb horse helped her do it, she says. I have been really blessed to be able to ride such a nice horse, and to work with Jay Holmes and Robert Smith, she acknowledged, naming another Florida trainer who moved to Texas. In the reined cow horse competition, riders must execute a variety of maneuvers: They ride patterns, change leads, spin their mounts, perform sliding stops and change speeds in fast and slow circles. Then riders meet a hard-charging cow coming out of the pen and hold it at one end of the arena, before taking the cow down the fence at a gallop and running the horse in front of it to stop and turn the cow. This is the most dangerous part of the event; Ms. Widener describes it as her favorite. Finally, the rider must bring the cow into the center of the arena, circling it both left and right and demonstrating to judges that the cow wants to do anything horse and rider ask. It takes an awful lot of horsemanship, especially to be able to cue the horse to score well in the reining porSCHIVINSKI COTTRILL HOLMES BLACKWELL Rachel Widener recently won the Florida High School Rodeo Association Reined Cow Horse Championship.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 NEWS A11tion of the event, she said. We are very proud of her, said her mother, Cyndi Skates Widener, a seventh-generation Floridian who grew up riding and barrel racing. The office manager at Sweet Cypress Ranch where feed, hay, livestock supplies, horse trailers and sheds are commodities, she and her husband Eric Widener will take Rachel this month into the Midwest and West, towing trailer and horse all the way. First, theyll travel to Shawnee, Okla., so their daughter can compete in breakaway roping and goat tying in the International Finals Youth Rodeo; then theyll head north to Gillette, Wyo., near the Montana border, to represent Florida in the Reined Cow Horse competition at the National High School Rodeo finals. Mr. Holmes figures his young protg will do well shes a talent, he says. And so is her horse. He should know. Mr. Holmes was born on a small ranch in Colorado. He began breaking horses at 14 and later spent a decade working the King Ranch in Texas, where he trained custom cutting horses and developed the first program to sell good using horses off the King Ranch horses that can do anything required in ranch or pleasure settings. He left the King Ranch more than two decades ago for Florida, where hes helped train champion horses and riders in such skills as reining, cutting and roping. Hell even prepare dressage horses, though he has never been a dressage rider. Im riding for a lady training for dressage, now, he said. So this lady went out and bought a dressage horse the horse was trained for it and it bucked her off. But He just needs a little more riding, a little more well, he just needs to be an honest citizen. Mr. Holmes will teach the horse an attentive discipline and respect for a rider who can and will return the favor in training and effort. Such riders the best riders are all students of the horse, said Ms. Schivinski. Theyre humble. They realize there is always something more to learn and listen to. You listen to what others tell you, and you listen to your horse. I weigh 120 pounds and my horse weighs 1,200 pounds. I follow the Ask, dont tell, philosophy. It shows. Last week Ms. Schivinski won a second division title on her filly, Delightfully First, out-riding 188 other contestants in a National Barrel Racing Association event.Caring communitiesOne of the most extraordinary qualities in devoted horse people is the level of care they show, both for their animals and for each other. Shes our baby. Shes on a care schedule. Every five weeks she gets new shoes. She sees a chiropractor and gets acupuncture once a month for performance, for stress relief before we go to big competitions. Shes an athlete, Ms. Schivinski said of Delightfully First, barn name Stix. Stix was barely broke when her rider found her, and now theyre winning competitions all over the state, and north of it. The reason she got her forever home (with me) was because of the kindness and intelligence I could see in her eye, she said. Ms. Schivinskis daughter called her Stix because she was thin and gangly at first. But she wanted to be part of the relationship. She wanted to please. You can feel them thinking. You can feel them trying. People sometimes debate the intelligence of horses, and the question can be answered many ways not just in scientific studies that suggest they have significant cognitive abilities along with superb eyesight, hearing and a sense of smell more acute than a humans (although not the equal of a dogs). It depends on how you define intelligence, said Ms. Cottrill. Sometimes theyre so much more aware than any person. My barn has a screen door across the front and a flimsy bar in back. One day my horse (Stella, age 17, Ms. Cottrills pride and joy for 13 years) was loose in the barn aisle. Suddenly she started snorting. And then she flew backwards in a dead panic, stopping just before (she hit) the 1-by-2 bar across the back door. Ms. Cottrill moved to the place Stella had evacuated, and listened. The electrical outlet near where she was standing was sparking inside the box. I never would have known and I couldnt tell until I put my ear against it, she said. Barn, horse and possibly human saved by a dressage horse named Stella. Thats one (very good) definition of intelligence, perhaps. But the notion that horses are both intelligent and emotionally complex was not widely held 30 years ago except by the most experienced riders, who likely have always known, said Mrs. Widener. In that 30 years since I rode, what we have learned about horses in general and about horsemanship is that they are such athletes, she said. We didnt treat them like athletes 30 years ago. If you had a barrel horse that didnt want to go in the arena or turn the first barrel, nobody understood why. Now, they receive chiropractic help and other therapies, helping do their jobs. Theyre amazing animals. They want to work, to do the right thing, to do their job, to do it well, said Mrs. Widener. Now when you see resistance, people are looking for why. Is this horse uncomfortable somewhere? Is his back or top hurting, whats going on? Sometimes the horse is just testing you, sure. But theyre pretty honest. Such caring is deeply sewn into the lives of horse people for each other, too, in any of the disciplines. When something happens to somebody, horseback angels circle and descend from all over the state and far beyond. On May 24, 2016, Rachels fellow competitor, friend and high school barrel racer Jacee Thomas was hit by a train while driving her car across a track without crossing guards on a small road in south Georgia, near her home (she usually competed in Florida). She has brain damage and her recovery has been slow. She would have graduated this past June, said Mrs. Widener. The entire rodeo community has rallied behind her, from junior rodeo organizations to professionals. That means money, support, ongoing visits, love and prayers. Pray for Jacee was even mentioned by contestants during the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas last December, Mrs. Widener noted. After the Wideners talked to Florida Weekly, she sent a late-day email with a request from Rachel: Rachel wants to know if you will put Pray for Jacee after any quotes you use. Done.

The method is an alternative to needle-and-syringe immunization; with further development, it could eliminate the discomfort of an injection as well as the inconvenience and expense of visiting a flu clinic. This bandage-strip sized patch of painless and dissolvable needles can transform how we get vaccinated, said Roderic I. Pettigrew, director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, which funded the study. A particularly attractive feature is that this vaccination patch could be delivered in the mail and selfadministered. In addition, this technology holds promise for delivering other vaccines in the future. The researchers received funding through an NIBIB Quantum Grant and from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The study was led by Nadine Rouphael, M.D., associate professor of medicine and Mark J. Mulligan, M.D., Emory University School of Medicine, in collaboration with Mark R. Prausnitz, Ph.D., Regents Professor and J. Erskine Love Chair in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. The vaccine patch consists of 100 solid, water-soluble needles that are just long enough to penetrate the skin. The skin is an immune surveillance organ, Mr. Prausnitz said. Its our interface with the outside world, so its very well equipped to detect a pathogen and mount an immune response against it. Adhesive helps the patch grip the skin during the administration of the vaccine, which is encapsulated in the needles and is released as the needle tips dissolve, within minutes. The patch is peeled away and discarded like a used bandage strip. The researchers enrolled 100 adult participants, dividing them into four random groups: vaccination with microneedle patch given by a health care provider; vaccination with microneedle patch self-administered by the study participant; vaccination with intramuscular injection given by a health-care provider; and placebo microneedle patch given by a health care provider. The researchers used an inactivated influenza vaccine formulated for the 2014-15 flu season to inoculate participants other than those in the placebo group. The researchers found that vaccination with the microneedle patches was safe, with no serious related adverse events reported. Some participants developed local skin reactions to the patches, described as faint redness and mild itching that lasted two to three days. The results also showed that antibody responses generated by the vaccine, as measured through analysis of blood samples, were similar in the groups vaccinated using patches and those receiving intramuscular injection, and these immune responses were still present after six months. More than 70 percent of patch recipients reported they would prefer patch vaccination over injection or intranasal vaccination for future vaccinations. No significant difference was seen between the doses of vaccine delivered by the health care workers and the volunteers who self-administered the patches, showing that participants were able to correctly self-administer the patch. After vaccination, imaging of the used patches found that the microneedles had dissolved in the skin, suggesting that the used patches could be safely discarded as non-sharps waste. The vaccines remained potent in the patches without refrigeration for at least one year. The prospective vaccine technology could offer economic and manufacturing advantages. The manufacturing cost for the patch is expected to be competitive with prefilled syringe costs. The patch, however, can dramatically reduce the cost of vaccination, since self-administration can eliminate the need to have health workers oversee the process. It can be easily packaged for transportation, requires no refrigeration, and is stable. Mr. Prausnitz is co-founder of a company that is licensing the microneedle patch technology. He is an inventor on licensed patents and has ownership interest in companies developing microneedle products, including Micron Biomedical. These potential conflicts of interest have been disclosed and are overseen by Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University. The team plans to conduct further clinical trials to pursue the technologys ultimate availability to patients. They also are working to develop microneedle patches for use with other vaccines, including measles, rubella and polio. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com

BEHIND THE WHEELNissan goes for a smaller, more distinct Rogue Sport Adding the word sport to a car is usually just about enhancing a vehicle with a few more aggressive features. Ford offers new wheels, a different grille and deletes some chrome for this trim level on the Fusion, Edge and Explorer. So does the Honda Ridgeline. Even the luxury-level Range Rover Sport shares its wheelbase and engines with the standard Range Rover. So it could be easy to dismiss the Nissan Rogue Sport as just a trim level, when in fact, its a separate and distinct vehicle. Despite possible confusion over this new crossovers individuality, it will not likely be ignored. Buyers are now used to sport vehicles as a premium package, but the Rogue Sport starts out at $3,000 less than the standard Rogue. In fact, it seems like the less expensive model is out to steal customers who are solely shopping on sticker price, but theres much more to the situation. Nissan established two different crossover names on the international market over a decade ago, utilizing one platform. The X-Trail was boxy enough to look truck-based (but it wasnt,) and the smaller Qashqai became popular in Europe for providing some sleek lines in a compact size. As crossover tastes began to unite under car-like designs, so did these two model lines. By 2014, the two established names merged similar stylings into big/little sibling alliance. We didnt see much of this in the U.S. because the latest Nissan Rogue is a version of the larger X-Trail, but the Qashqai never made it to our shores until now. The DNA shared between the Rogue and Rogue Sport is obvious. Similarities in the headlight designs, creased hood lines, and window profiles sometimes make the two indistinguishable to a casual consumer. This is likely why Nissan didnt give the Rogue Sport a distinct name. After all, since we were never introduced to such exotic labels as the X-Trail and Qashqai, if Nissan tried that division on us now, wed probably accuse them of making a mountain out of a molehill. But the Rogue Sports design does live up to the sport expectations of buyers by forgoing much of the chrome details of its larger brother, giving it an overall sleeker appearance. And when looking at Nissans total lineup, its clear this one is serving as a midpoint point between the somewhat polarizing styling of the smaller Juke and their more conventional larger crossovers/SUVs. Inside, the Rogue Sport carries Nissans new style steering wheel that has a sporty grip and small horn cap reminiscent of a BMW. The base model starts at $22,380, and comes equipped with all the popular features power windows, power locks, backup camera and keyless entry/ignition. But these are also found in a nearly identical layout on the redesigned 2017 Rogue. The real difference between these two siblings starts behind the front seats. Compared to its big bro, the Rogue Sports wheelbase is a few inches smaller and over a foot shorter in total length. That makes legroom a little tighter in the back seat and not enough space for an optional third row.Theres more distinction to the Rogue Sport out on the road. The 2.0-liter motor makes 140 horsepower, which is 30 less than the big Rogues standard 2.5-liter. Those extra ponies are missed under hard acceleration, but this is the case with many value-priced small crossovers.Instead, the steering and suspension are really where this one earns the sport name. It feels a bit more responsive than its bigger bro and many of its competitors. This doesnt compare to a true sport model like the Nissan 370Z, but it can be fun driving around town. Like any good crossover, the Rogue Sport comes with plenty of option packages everything from all-wheel drive to radar-based intelligent cruise control. But these will add to the weight and/or the price. So choose features carefully. Nissan feels that theres now enough room in the USA for the X-Trail and Qashqai to both fit under the Rogue name. And the best distinction of the Rogue Sport is when its role is as the svelte and affordable little brother. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

These little predators who live in our homes are hard-wired to remain hidden, and living a soft indoor life doesnt dull their instincts. Trying to find a lost cat can be like searching for a specific grain of sand on the beach. The first rule of success is knowing how to look. Cheryl M. Melton of Sallisaw, Okla., vice president and western area director for Forever Friends Humane Society, became an accidental expert in 2013 after a family adopted a cat from her rescue group. The same night they took him home, he slipped out the door and disappeared.I was determined to find Thomas, she says. This was the jumping-off point for me in finding lost cats. Thomas was finally recovered. Since then, Melton has helped owners find other missing meowsers. Even though you cant see them, lost cats typically stick close to home. They may take refuge in bushes or a shed and hunker down for about 24 hours. They use their senses to gather information and wont move until they feel safe. Then they will begin to search for food, water, shelter and, sometimes, other cats. If you have a neighbor who is known for feeding cats, check with her first, Melton advises. I have found that cats do not usually go further than 200 yards from the point of exit, she says. They dont go in a straight line, and they dont stick to roads like dogs do. They tend to sl owly work their way around, and it seems like they always work their way forward. The cats I have found have been very close to home, not more than a half mile at most. Look for your cat at dawn or dusk. Cats are crepuscular, meaning those are the times of day they are most active. They like to hunt when its still cool or when its dark out. Put up flyers. They are the numberone way pets are returned to owners, Melton says. Put a large color photo of your cat on the flyer, topped with the words Missing! and Reward! At the bottom, add other details, including contact information. Post flyers on street corners up to a halfmile from your home. Place them at eye level so the driver of a car can see them. Put one on your door for your mailman to see, and make sure flyers are distributed to neighbors, pet stores, feed stores, shelters and online, Melton says. Because at the time she didnt know how to look, it took Melton a month to track down Thomas. Once I learned more about staying close to the point of exit, that made all the difference, and we got him within the week, she says. One thing Melton learned from the search for Thomas was that no matter how loving and friendly a cat is, being lost is a scary situation for him. Even though your cat knows you, he may be too afraid to come when you call. Be prepared to set and monitor a humane trap once you locate your cat. Dont give up hope, Melton says. Your kitty could be found in a day or a month or a year. It all depends on the area, the depth of the search and, of course, the cat. Cats who become lost outside their home area in the event of a car accident, for instance usually stay close to that area.

His extensive local government experience, leadership skills and education make him an ideal candidate for this position, said Collier County Manager Leo Ochs. I will rely on Thaddeus to lead our agencys efforts to develop and implement coordinated planning, regulation, construction and maintenance programs that will enhance the countys effectiveness and accountability. Under the county managers direction, Mr. Cohen will oversee a department that has 10 operating divisions with an annual operating budget of more than $119 million and a full-time workforce of more than 490 employees. He will be charged with effectively managing the countys assets, making the operations more efficient and delivering superior customer service. Mr. Cohen has an extensive background in urban planning, community development, infrastructure design and construction management. Most recently, he served as the planning director and the community redevelopment agency director for the city of Key West. Prior to that, he was assistant city manager and Community Redevelopment Agency director for the city of Pensacola. From 2004 to 2007, he served as the secretary of the Florida Department of Community Affairs. In addition, he had his own architecture firm for 20 years. Mr. Cohens relationship with Key West City Manager Jim Scholl was reportedly strained and the two agreed in March that Mr. Cohen would end his employment with the city. A graduate of Kent State University with a bachelor of architecture degree, Mr. Cohen has served as chair of the Florida Community Trust, chair of the Council for Black Economic Broward County, chair of the Palm Beach County Affordable Housing Commission, and as a board member for 1000 Friends of Florida, Florida Housing Finance Corp. and Floridas Broward Alliance.

MONEY & INVESTINGHeed red flags about Blue Apron before buying stockI dont really get the whole meal kit delivery popularity sweeping across the country. If you have never heard of these services, it is where a company sends you a package full of ingredients along with a recipe to prepare the meal. You have to prep all of the ingredients and do the cooking along with paying a premium price for the food. I guess my thought is that if I am going to pay $10 for a meal, I dont really want to spend 20 minutes dicing onions and praying that my piece of salmon is cooked medium rare. Blue Apron is clearly the dominant player. The company went public earlier last month. With over $800 million in sales and explosive growth, the company should have been a Wall Street favorite. Instead, the company has faced significant headwinds over the last few weeks. Is this a time to jump into the stock? What may the future hold for Blue Apron?A month before Blue Aprons IPO, the stock was expected to make a huge splash when it went public. Then, just a few days prior to the offering, a bombshell was dropped on the food industry. Amazon announced that it was buying Whole Foods. Analysts proclaimed that the online company was going to revolutionize the way Americans buy food. One of the casualties of this announcement was Blue Aprons valuation. Prior to the announcement, the company was expected to be priced at $15 to $17 per share. Post announcement, the companys stock was priced at $10 to $11 and APRN went public at the bottom of that range at $10 per share. Even at this lower valuation, investors were not clamoring for APRN. On one hand, the company was experiencing rapid growth. In the last two years, revenue grew by a factor of 10 from $78 million to $800 million. In addition, despite being the largest meal delivery company, it still has a very small market share with only about 1 percent of the $800 billion grocery market. There is lots of opportunity to grow. However, there are many red flags with regard to APRNs financials. First, the company is losing money. In itself, this is fairly typical with newly formed, fast-growing public companies, so is not a reason in itself not to invest in the stock. Amazon was unprofitable for years. But the reasons for APRNs lack of profitability are cause for some concern. The company is spending huge amounts of money to attract new customers, as existing customers are not returning. The company spends around $94 to attract each new paying customer and each of these people spends around $57 worth of food each quarter. This would be fine if customers remained loyal to the company. But just 20 percent of customers still buy from the company a year after ordering their first meal. This means that the majority of APRNs customers are not yet profitable after deducting food, shipping, marketing and administrative costs.Equally as concerning, the competitive landscape for Blue Apron will make it harder for the company to grow in the future. Fast-casual restaurants are promoting more healthy options and they do all of the prep work for you at basically the same price as Blue Apron. In addition, grocery stores, in an effort to combat Walmart, are offering more gourmet ready-made food products at low prices. And with Amazon entering the grocery business via Whole Foods, many analysts expect the combined company to beat Blue Apron in the meal delivery business.All of these factors have weighed heavily on APRN. The stock now trades below its $10 offering price at around $9. Even at this level, I would be very wary of this stock until the company can show meal kits are not just a fad and they have a strategy to grow profitable customers.

To put that in perspective, its more than 50 yards farther from tee to hole than the distance on a football field from the goal line to the 50-yard line. The business model that made miniature golf a success between the world wars is likely what keeps it going in 2017, 90 years after an entrepreneur named Garnet Carter in 1927 built the first course, which was in Lookout Mountain, Tenn. What I like is what I liked 20 years ago, said Bob Trimarchi, one of Tropical Breezes two owners, along with David Lanaux. I know it sounds corny but its putting a smile on peoples faces. Its good, clean family fun. The games health also appears strong on Floridas east coast, where other new courses have been built in recent years. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium opened its 18-hole miniature golf course in November. It was designed by two men with names very familiar in the world of bigger golf courses Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus. Mr. Fazio is a well-known golf course architect with his own eponymous company Jim Fazio Golf Designs. Mr. Nicklaus is the son of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and also played on the pro tour. Lew Crampton, the science centers president and CEO, said both men donated their services to design the course, which cost about $250,000 to build. Its not a typical miniature golf course. And not just because it doesnt have either a clowns mouth or windmill. It is set within a butterfly ga rden, Mr. Crampton said. And it has a science name the Conservation Course. Its designed to be educational as well as fun. Each hole is named for a plant or animal in the Everglades and each hole has a sign with educational information on it. Hole names include the Great Horned Owl and the American Crocodile. So, far, according to Mr. Crampton, the miniature golf course has generated $55,000 in revenue since its opening last fall. The courses purpose is two-fold for players: Have fun and teach science. Only three years before the Conservation Course opened, Lighthouse Cove opened in Jupiter. The facility has recently added new props or obstacles to its course as well as adding a 6,000-gallon saltwater tank. Its on-site restaurant, the Burger Shack, added an open-air pavilion with seating for 90 guests. As with many if not all Florida miniature golf courses, certain months are busier than others at Lighthouse Cove. Were very busy 10 months, said Tim Glita, Lighthouses general manager. The only two slow months, he said, are August and September. At the peak time of the year, Mr. Glita estimates the facility averages between 500 and 600 rounds a day. In the two slow months, its down to 100-to-200 rounds a day. As a sign of the games popularity, Lighthouse opened a second location last year in Cocoa Beach. Mr. Glita said Lighthouse owners are looking at a third location. A site hasnt been selected yet. What attracted families in 1930 when Herbert Hoover was president and the Depression was just deepening its hold on America after the 1929 stock market crash is also the case now, according to miniature golf operators. Heather Bergeron, manager of Fish Cove Adventure Golf in Port Charlotte, echoed Mr. Trimarchis sentiments, ones that operators may have used nearly nine decades ago. We sell fun, Ms. Bergeron told Florida Weekly in a telephone conversation. The conversation was then interrupted. Can you hold on? Ms. Bergeron asked Florida Weekly. I have a customer. She dealt with her customer and could be heard saying, You guys have fun. Fish Cove offers two 18-hole courses, plenty of room for fun. When she returned to the phone call, Ms. Bergeron said, Thats what I always tell them. Chris Frizzell, general manager of Jungle Golf in Fort Myers, believes that part of the games allure is that it demands attention. Thats attention to the challenge of making shots but also to friends and families who play together, making it a social activity instead of social media. Your phone doesnt help, said Mr. Frizzell, who has been at Jungle Golf for 10 years. People actually have to talk together. So much has changed since Jungle Golf opened in 1978, let alone since that 1930 Popular Science article with this headline: Why Midget Golf Swept Country. Mr. Frizzell said his facility has steady growth of between 3 and 10 percent a year. Of course, now that its summer, not as many customers play miniature golf in Florida. Not surprisingly, a great bulk of the business in Florida at these courses comes when the weather isnt scorching hot and the danger of lightning strikes is not omnipresent. I would say 50 percent of our business is done in six to eight weeks of the year, Mr. Frizzell said. That would be around Christmas and New Years and around Easter, according to the Jungle Golf general manager. Although tourists would seem to be a natural part of the clientele in miniature golf, Mr. Trimarchi said Tropical Breeze wasnt designed for tourists and snowbirds. We opened this for residents of Cape Coral and the Cape Coral area, Mr. Trimarchi said. Mr. Trimarchi said he has embraced the Disney approach to customer service, aiming to keep the facility spotless and treat each customer as he or she wants to be treated. The name Tropical is also enhanced, he said, by the landscaping that includes various types of palm trees that include canary date, coconut, foxtail and royal palm. The Southwest Florida miniature golf course landscape also includes a facility a short drive from Tropical Breeze Fun Parks location on Santa Barbara Boulevard. Mike Greenwells Bat-A-Ball & Family Fun Park on Pine Island Road, a Cape Coral entertainment fixture since 1992, includes a 19-hole miniature golf course. Just like with regulation golf, miniature golf courses demand attention from management. There are trees and bushes and grass that need to be trimmed or cut, just like on the big courses. Rain and wind can damage holes over night so when workers arrive in the morning there are often new tasks to tackle.You have to think of it as a large animal, Mr. Frizzell said. A horse or an elephant.Horses and elephants need food and water. Miniature golf courses need attention. You have to take care of it like a living thing, Mr. Frizzell said. The Florida landscape is dotted with other miniature golf courses such as Castle Golf in Fort Myers, Coral Cay in Naples, Golf Safari in Bonita Springs and Adventure Mini Golf in Lake Worth. So, 87 years after Popular Science Monthly asked the about the future of Americas newest fad it doesnt appear to be going away. What did the magazine predict in 1930 of its future? Showmanship and mechanical art will decide the fate of Americas newest big industry miniature golf, Popular Science Magazine wrote.

As noted by Danielle Scoggins, Senior Public Policy Representative with Florida Realtors, the strength of the NABOR Realtors Political Action Committee contributions as well as NABOR advocacy and outreach efforts helped the state agency gain the support it needed on many issues that impact homeownership in Florida. Ms. Scoggins spoke to real estate professionals at the annual NABOR Meet Your Legislators panel discussion at Quail Creek Country Club on June 22. Two of these guests are the sponsors of the Estoppel Bill that passed, Ms. Scoggins said as she motioned to the three politicians seated at the front of the room. Applause broke out as she thanked Sen. Kathleen Passidomo, who is serving her first term after six years in the house, and freshmen Reps. Byron Donalds (District 80) and Bob Rommel (District 106). When the first budgets came out, the House had zero set aside for Southwest Florida, while the Senate had quite a bit, Sen. Passidomo said. This financial imbalance prompted Reps. Donalds and Rommel to band together and create a list of potential bills that directly addressed issues affecting Southwest Florida that were on the Senates list. One of those items was Senate Bill 398, which went into effect July 1. As proposed by Rep. Donalds, the bill limits the amount sellers have to pay for an estoppel certificate (a document that informs a buyer if the seller is current with dues and assessments). With Sen. Passidomos sponsorship of the bill at the senate level, it passed and effectively caps estoppel certificate fees at $250 for unit owners who are current in their assessments. Associations may charge an additional $100 for expedited estoppel certificates (delivered within three business days) and another $150 to owners who are delinquent in their assessments. Another achievement during the session will benefit business owners in Florida greatly. While not the first time Exquisitely updated in a coastal contemporary design, this 12th-floor residence in The Brittany showcases the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There are three bedrooms, a den and three baths in approximately 2,500 square feet of living area as well as lanais with both western and eastern exposure. Built in 1995, The Brittany is an elegant building with luxury amenities including a health club, guest suites, social rooms, library, one of the largest pools on the beach and two tennis courts.

it has been argued during session, this year marked the first-ever reduction of the business rent tax. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, the new state tax rate businesses will pay on their commercial leases will be 5.8 percent. Far from being eliminated, which is ultimately the goal, it is estimated that businesses throughout Florida will save more than $60 million each year with this first-ever reduction. This was the best year for Realtors in my six years in Tallahassee, Sen. Passidomo said. Your priorities became our priorities, and its great how everyone came together. She had a heavy load to carry in her first year as a state senator. She personally drafted and passed the Estoppel Bill, an important consumer protection bill that affects all real estate transactions, and culminates more than three years of pressing this issue before the legislature. While new to the process, Reps. Donalds and Rommel quickly learned the importance of building relationships, and both admitted that getting an idea through several committees doesnt mean you have to make enemies. A hot topic of discussion during the evening was the issue of Assignment of Benefits. Rep. Donalds responded by saying, It will be tough, but we cant have these type of abuses in insurances. Theres no protection to consumers. Sen. Passidomo commented that trial lawyers consider killing AOB reformation as their biggest accomplishment. Theres so much abuse going on with this provision and insurers like Citizens Property Insurance, which points to out-of-control water damage claims where homeowners have signed over their assignment of benefits to contractors are responding with rate hikes. Others will follow, she said. But progress was made in other areas, including the passage of HJR 21, which affects seasonal homeowners. Currently, there is a 10 percent cap on the annual increase of property taxes for all nonhomestead properties, but it sunsets on Jan. 1, 2019. With the passing of HJR 21, voters will see a new amendment on the November 2018 ballot that permanently puts a 10 percent cap on the annual increase of property taxes for all nonhomestead properties. Rep. Rommel mentioned an additional three bills that passed the session to control property taxes.

B16 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 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.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 GULF COAST HOMES B19 Iconic Lake Timber Lake House nearing completion at Babcock RanchConstruction of the Lake House neighborhood center within the Lake Timber neighborhood at Babcock Ranch is nearing completion. Babcock Ranch is a new 18,000-acre eco-centric, solar powered town being developed by Kitson & Partners just 20 minutes east of Fort Myers, Florida off Florida State Road 31 in Charlotte County just north of the Lee Civic Center. The Lake House will serve as an iconic focal point for first-time visitors to Babcock Ranch. The entrance to Babcock Ranch was designed to introduce the fresh water lakes and green spaces that are a central focus of the new town. As visitors traverse Babcocks entry bridge, the first building they see will be the Lake House. Inspired by the historic Cypress Lodge on the neighboring Babcock Ranch Preserve, the 2,400-square foot Lake House features soaring ceilings with exposed 24 x 24-inch beams and a two-sided stone fireplace. The use of exposed wood and natural materials resulted in the creation of a center suited to Lake Timbers natural setting. Open interior spaces offer gathering places for neighborhood events. The interior showcases a comfortable family room-style seating area around the fireplace, a game room, and a kitchenette. Outside features a barbecue area with a grill, a 2,000-square foot lakefront deck, a 2,200 square-foot pool, a bathhouse, a large playground, and an expansive lawn. While the ambiance of Lake House pays homage to a bygone era, the wildernesschic style lodge will be energy efficient. The same SIP Panel Construction process featured in the Cottage Collection homes Fox Premier Builders is building within Lake Timber was used to construct the Lake House. Developed by New Panel Homes, the structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance, 21st Century building system. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The building system is durable, energy efficient and cost effective. The SIPs act as a thermal blanket, compacting all the insulation within the walls so that everything inside is usable, conditioned space. The process saves time, money, and labor. Lake Timbers lakefront green spaces and pathways, trail head facilities, a dog park, fishing dock, observation deck, and Babcock Ranchs first town garden provide opportunities for connecting with nature. Custom lakefront, porch home, and cottage residences line streetscapes dotted with parks. Furnished models by Homes by Towne, Stock Development, and Florida Lifestyle Homes are open for viewing. All buildings and residences at Babcock Ranch are built to Florida Green Building Coalition Certification standards. To learn more about living at the eco-centric, solar powered town being developed by Kitson & Partners at Babcock Ranch, visit babcockranch.com. Construction of the Lake House neighborhood center within the Lake Timber neighborhood at Babcock Ranch has been completed. The Babcock Ranch Discovery Center on the first floor of Woodlea Hall at Founders Square is the focal point for obtaining information about all aspects of Kitson & Partners new solar powered town. Curry Creek Outfitters serves the hikers, bikers, kayakers, boaters, and fishing enthusiasts eager to enjoy Babcock Ranchs 50-miles of nature trails and numerous lakes.

Putnam. 384 pages. Trade paperback, $17.99. Once again, Im shaken by a young adult novel. Its filled with cruelty, suffering, determination and decisions that shouldnt have to be made by someone just emerging from childhood. Rosie is 17 as we meet her. She turns 18 about the same time she graduates from high school. She seems isolated, left to fend for herself in a household in which Lucy, her abusive stepmother, displays no parenting skills only an interest in hurting and manipulating Rosie. Its clear that the responsibility to care for Rosie she took on many years back has been in the way of Lucys needs. No longer married to Rosies father, Lucy now doesnt want to deal with her boyfriend Judds crude advances toward her stepdaughter. When she married Rosies father, Lucy made a deal that would have a substantial payoff. She doesnt want to rock the boat that is sailing to that payoff, perfectly timed for Lucys freedom from parenting Rosie. Rosie is also fighting the humiliation of ex-boyfriend Rays unwillingness to respect her wishes. She is not ready to have sex with him, and this stance has sent him looking elsewhere. Rosie leans on her best and pretty much her only friend: Mary. Mary is extremely supportive and understanding, perhaps because she too is striving to survive a dysfunctional family. Both girls want to get away from their dismal home situations, save up some money and get out of town so they can move on with their lives. Rosie is considering studying fashion design, but how can she pay for it?The girls have worked out a plan in which Rosie is essentially Marys pimp: Mary puts out for the sex-hungry schoolboys, and the money is set aside for the girls futures which are just around the corner. When Rosie receives clues that her real mother is alive, the money is redirected toward tracking her down and visiting her. She hires a private detective who takes this as a pro bono case and turns most of the scut work over to his nephew, a straight-arrow college student who pays attention to Rosie in a respectful way. Rosie also encounters the likelihood of an inheritance. The visit to the sanitarium in Colorado is one of the high points of the novel, placed right where it should be. What is revealed there about mother and daughter is astonishing and makes one rethink everything thats come before (so resist the temptation to leap ahead).In Rosie Girl, many worlds collide. These include the world of high school, the world of the Miami area, the world of family dysfunction and the world of madness. Each is deftly and vividly portrayed, and each contributes insights and surprises. Several minor characters stand out, though they are only briefly center stage. These include teenage boys and girls of Rosies acquaintance, teachers and staff at the school, John the detective and his nephew (who is a very important and striking minor character) and an older neighborhood woman who befriends Rosie.What goes on inside Rosies head is what readers will find most engrossing. The author has pinned down that threshold time of life: its yearnings and frustrations, its quick mood changes, its confused values, its encounters with loyalty and betrayal, its mixture of audacity and guilt, hope and hopelessness. Whatever part of the see-saw Rosie is on, Mary seems to be her counterpart on the other side. Julie Shepards book is powerful, moving and frightening. I havent yet decided whether I should share it with my 17-year-old granddaughter. Id better ask her mother, whose 17th year I remember only too well. About the authorAfter receiving her degree in English literature from the University of Florida, Julie Shepard earned her teaching certificate and taught seventh-grade English and several after-school creative writing programs. It was during this time she developed a keen ear for adolescent drama and knew that young adult fiction was the path her writing journey would take. Although she left the classroom years ago, her passion for crafting dark, edgy stories continues. She attends writing conferences and workshops, and meets for critique sessions with writing group members.While her sons have already escaped the household, she and her husband still occupy their own slice of paradise in Fort Lauderdale. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. o r h s m philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com SHEPARD

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYHeres what they had to say:Kevin WellsReference librarian at Lakes Regional Library, Fort MyersRecommend: One of the books I just finished is the NY Times Bestseller Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Its very short, and its very good. Its a very complex subject, but hes able to bring it down to a level where someone like me, a history major, can understand the basic concepts. Its small enough to whet your appetite. Hes not just bright, he can communicate too. Personally looking forward to: Im looking forward to Testimony by Scott Turow. Its a little different, because a lot of the action takes place overseas. So even though its a legal drama, it departs from his other works in that respect. Its an international drama having to do with The Hague. Tracy HermanLibrarian supervisor at the Port Charlotte LibraryRecommend: Ive been recommending, My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons. Its a cute story, for grades 3-5. Its humorous, and I think it will really attract the kids attention. It kept mine. It opens with a kid up in a tree house with his older brother. He leaves the tree house to use the bathroom in their house. It opens with the line, It all happened because I had to pee. When hes not in the tree house, a UFO comes down and an alien from another planet beams up his brother, the one whos going to save the world, and gives him super powers. Personally looking forward to: Im looking forward to reading Drowning Tides by Karen Harper. Shes the author of a series set in Florida. Shes going to be a guest speaker here in our library in upcoming season, after the first of the year. Bill MacDonaldReference librarian and head of adult programs at Mid-County Regional Library, Port CharlotteRecommend: The Big Little Lies book by Liane Moriarity is now an HBO series thats pretty popular. Its got a cast of characters, mainly female. I think its set in Australia in the book, but the HBO mini series relocates it to Los Angeles. Its a dark comedy, a social commentary on suburbia. And itll be the subject of a discussion group here at the library in October. Personally looking forward to: I plan to read some biographies, one on John F. Kennedy and one on Lyndon Johnson, but havent selected the exact books yet.Judy DomzalskiLibrary technician Mid-County Regional Library, Port CharlotteRecommend: The one I just finished is A Gentleman In Moscow, by Amor Towles. Its set in Russia, right after the Revolution. The subject of the title is an aristocrat thats been put under house arrest at one of the grand hotels in Moscow, the internationally famous Metropol hotel. Its (about) how he manages to survive in post-Revolution Russia. Most of his material goods have been taken from him. But the part of him that is the strongest is his strength of character, and his relationships. His strength of spirit is so strong, its endearing. Personally looking forward to: Im currently reading The Chilbury Ladies Choir by Jennifer Ryan. Its such an odd title, but the book itself is amazing. Its really good. Its all told through journals, diaries, and letters, set in WW II. And Im looking forward to reading the new Jennifer McMahon book, Burntown. Shes a suspense writer and some of it is on the supernatural side. She had written a book called The Winter People that got a lot of attention, an eerie book. So were all looking forward to her new one.Lynda CitroInterim regional librarian for the Charlotte County Library SystemRecommend: Id recommend a new series Im reading, called The Gender Game by Bella Forrest. If you liked The Hunger Games, youd like The Gender Games. Six books are already out. Its (set in) a post-apocalyptic world; something happened, the world sort of ended, yet people are surviving. So they decided, instead of setting up like it used to be, one society is the matriarchal society where women are rulers, then on the other side of the river is the patriarchal society. (It looks at) how when you go to one extreme or the other, its not going to work. I find them interesting. Personally looking forward to: Im looking forward to book 7 in The Gender Games series.Bryan WattPublic services librarian for the Collier County Library System Recommend: Id recommend a couple of books: The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand and Camino Island by John Grisham, his latest. Those are two of our top requested books from our patrons. Definitely popular reads for the summer. And Id recommend the last book I just read, an autobiography by David Ortiz: Papi: My Story. Hes a retired baseball player, a designated hitter, who played for the Boston Red Sox. They just retired his number at Fenway a few weeks ago. He was one of the best designated hitters to play the game of baseball. He was a good player and a good human being. Its more about his character than about baseball. And Im a Yankees fan too! Im not a fan of the Red Sox, but it was good book and I enjoyed reading it. Personally looking forward to: A book Im just starting to read now, Lisa Sees The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane. Its her latest. Its good. Its more of a drama, but the reason its appealing, is that its based on a true story about the life of a Chinese mother and daughter, and the daughters been adopted by an American couple. I plan on doing a book discussion about it in the fall.Matt HardyLibrary associate at Lakes Regional Library, Fort MyersRecommend: Paula Hawkins Into the Water. She wrote the NY Times Bestseller Girl on a Train. Personally looking forward to: Personally, Im looking forward to reading The Force by Don Winslow, set in the NYPD. I believe its about the rise and fall of one officer on the special task force. Hes the author who wrote The Power of the Dog and The Cartel. Tracy WilliamsPublic services librarian at Collier County Library HeadquartersRecommend: I just finished The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck, which I really enjoyed. The storys set in post WW II, with strong female characters. The main character took in others and in the process realized in the end that her life was not what she thought it was. She wasnt as strong as she thought she was. The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See was also really good. I liked reading about the class system, the very patriarchal society in China, and how women were subjugated, but how the main character overcame that, and wound up running her own business, and traveled to American and broke out of that mode. Personally looking forward to: I am looking forward to Philipa Greogrys book The Last Tudor. Ive read everything shes ever written. And I plan to read most everything on the current New York Times Bestseller list.Rose DunnReference library associate Fort Myers Regional LibraryRecommend: Id recommend anything by Elin Hilderbrand, whos from Massachusetts. She writes about Nantucket, Marthas Vineyard, and Im from that area. So I identify with that. I know where shes talking about. I recommend all of her books. Id call them beach reads. I also recommend Harlan Coben. He has a series, and some stand-alones. And then my absolute favorite author is Karin Slaughter. Her name is very fitting. Its gory, gross, Oh my God, I cant read this when Im alone, that kind of stuff. And I love it! I have read every single thing shes written. She also has series and stand-alones. When I read one of her books, I drop what Im doing, and my husband doesnt get supper all week or for a few days, until Im done. I cant wait for her next book. And then Im afraid the entire time Im reading it. Personally looking forward to: Im waiting for the new one by Elin Hilderbrand, called The Identicals. Its set at the beach, and its definitely a beach read.Laura CifelliReference librarian Fort Myers Regional LibraryRecommend: This year, in April, our book discussion group read a non-fiction title called Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick. It turned out to be very timely considering what happened with Otto Warmbier from Ohio, (the student who was tortured by the North Korean regime.) Barbara Demick was a Los Angeles Times reporter who was in Korea, so she went to North Korea and (did) research. The book was astounding. We were just so flabbergasted at the conditions of the people in North Korea. One of the most remarkable things was that they dont have adequate electricity, so at night, if you look at a satellite map, in the middle of Asia, its pitch black. After just the first few sentences, I was saying, Wow, I had no idea. I read it on an audio book. Its just brilliant, absolutely amazing. Its hard to realize that its going on today. Its real, its not a dystopian novel. I would highly recommend it. Personally looking forward to: A book Im looking forward to reading this summer, is Thirsty Dragon: Chinas Lust for Bordeaux and the Threat to the Worlds Best Wines, by Suzanne Mustacich. Its about Chinas lust for Bordeaux. They now have this very large affluent consumer class, theyve moved into wine. There was just a story (the other) week on NPR on China trying to buy up vineyards in Australia. And a manga version of that Marie Kondo book, called The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up, was just released. Its a graphic novel version. Im really curious what thats going to be like, and how her philosophy translates. I think thats going to be really neat. LIBRARIANSFrom page 1
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 What is it with my family and cars? A maternal great-grandfather loved them enough that he built one of his own he and my grandfather even owned an Oldsmobile and Buick dealership in Indiana. Driving wasnt just for the men, either. The women in my family always have driven three of my four greatgrandmothers drove and both of my grandmothers drove fast. My grandmother Dorothy told the tale of how their father bought a touring car of some sort around 1920 or They cleared an alley and a field in Thomasville, Ga., so he, Aunt Cleo, age 10, and Granny could learn to drive the thing. Everyone stood back and watched, she said. They moved to Florida in 1923 before moving back to South Georgia to run the family farm. Later, when my fathers family came back to South Florida around 1929, it was my 12-year-old grandmother Dorothy who drove the truck as they headed south. Yes, it was another world. Around 1933, Aunt Cleo and Granny set out on a road trip from Fort Pierce to visit the relatives in South Georgia. They no doubt were wearing hats and gloves as they zipped along U.S. 1 in Cleos tiny American Austin the 1930s answer to the Mini Cooper. Florida was open country back then, with towns that gave way to orange groves and pastures, where cattle freely grazed unencumbered by fences. Indeed, if you were to have asked Cleo and Granny before they left Fort Pierce, theyd have assured you that rural Florida was a bucolic paradise. And so it was, until they crossed a bridge and met a cow somewhere around Sebastian. Cleo insisted the cow was grazing at the side of the road on the other side of the bridge. But by the time they had crossed, Cleo had driven the rinky-dink Roadster under the cow, which promptly relieved itself all over Granny. The cow survived. But Granny and Cleo were covered in the bovine response to their meeting. It wasnt pretty Granny was heard to say, Shit! for the first time. Repeatedly. The ladies returned home for cleanup. When they got home, my great-grandfather and my grandmother Dorothy were there. They tried not to laugh, but how could they not? Of course, the more they laughed, the angrier Cleo and Granny became. And so another family story raced into legend. COLLECTORS CORNER The tale of Granny, Aunt Cleo, the car and the cow scott SIMMONS email@example.com Bought: All Good Things, 330 N.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYMarys simply magical in Broadway Palms Mary PoppinsAttention: Mary Poppins has flown into town; be sure not to miss her while shes here. Shes dropped into 17 Cherry Tree Lane (at the Broadway Palm) to straighten out some unruly, ungrateful children, and bring the Banks family closer together. Mary Poppins is an ambitious musical for the theater to put on for any theater to put on. After all, this is a world where toys and stone statues come to life, cakes decorate themselves and a certain special nanny flies through the sky. Theres a vast array of characters and special effects galore. But the Broadway Palm and its talented cast and crew handle it all marvelously. Mary Poppins (Melissa Whitworth) shows up fairly early in the musical. The actress shares Julie Andrewss delicate features, so if we use the 1964 Disney movie as a reference (rather than the books), she looks exactly how Mary Poppins should look. This is Ms. Whitworths third production as the famous British nanny, and shes the perfect marriage of no-nonsense and nonsensical. She also sings like a dream, to boot, and makes it all look effortless. By the time shes pulled a 5-foot coat rack, an oversized potted plant and a cup of tea from her carpetbag, weve fallen under her spell. George Banks (James Taylor Odom), the father, may sing of precision and order, but Mary Poppins is the one who has it all under control. Chris Duir does a great job as Bert, the chimney sweep. His Berts a likeable guy, not half as goofy as Dyke Van Dyke is in the movie. Mr. Duir plays him more like a person than a caricature and thank God doesnt overdo it with the Cockney accent. As a child, I thought Bert and Mary were an item, but as seen in this stage production, he respects her and has a crush on her. And while shes friendly, Mary seems to keep him at arms length. Step In Time, danced up on the London rooftops among the chimneys with the ensemble all dressed as chimney sweeps, is one of the shows outstanding numbers. This big, infectious, lively song is a tap-dancing extravaganza. This stage show veers from the movie in some places. Mrs. Banks is no longer a suffragette, fighting for the womens vote and equal rights. Bert is not a oneman band. And Mary and the children dont visit Uncle Albert, who floats to the top of the ceiling like a helium balloon when he laughs. Some of the original songs from the movie (by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman) are included some adapted, and some new songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe are added. Dont worry; old favorites such as A Spoonful of Sugar, Chim Chim Cheree, Lets Go Fly a Kite and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious are still there, though maybe not all in the places they used to be. Director Ryan Gibbs and choreographer/associate director Samantha Hews Cramer do a smart job with this show, getting the tone just right and presenting a fresh, bright picture of Mary Poppins. Mr. Gibbs has cast children who are skilled actors, not just kids who are cute and adorable. Kylan Ritchie and Liam Hutt played Jane and Michael Banks, respectively, on opening night. (They alternate shows with Ava Stroeberl and Nicholas Salerno.) During the show, an interesting thing happened: Mary Poppins hat was knocked askew during a dance number. The actress tried to quickly reattach it, and failed. A little later, she handed her umbrella to Mr. Hutt, who stayed in character and acted as if it were part of the script. She matter-offactly re-affixed her hat, and when the two crossed paths again, received her umbrella back. Theres not a weak link in the group. Megan Mapson and Danny Boman as the cook and houseboy are also outstanding, as they try to deal with the strange goings-on in the Bank household. The role of Mrs. Banks is more of a thankless job in this stage version, but Desire Dillon makes the best of it, finally asserting herself in the end. Shes no longer a suffragette, but a displaced actress trying to win her husbands love and control her unruly children. And Mr. Odom as Mr. Banks is much more interested in his job than in his wife or children. The ensemble doesnt get much rest, as they are constantly called upon to be onstage in various numbers as large dolls, Londoners in a park, bankers or chimney sweeps. Many play multiple roles, including Jen Hope, who plays Katie Nanna (a good-natured nanny who leaves the Banks), Miss Andrew (an evil nanny) and the Bird Woman, who sings Feed the Birds. There are so many big production numbers in this musical that its difficult to name them all. The staid bankers number (Precision and Order) is a great contrast to the outrageousness of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The costumes, by John P. White, are wildly creative, whether theyre stone statues, adult-sized toys, or customers and clerks in Mrs. Corrys magical shop where people can buy words. I adored the two giant dancing penguins in Jolly Holiday. For some reason, they just made me laugh. While this is a light-hearted show, it also has its messages, including Anything can happen if you let it. Though family friendly, some scenes may be too intense for very young children. (The original West End production banned children 3 and younger, saying the show was for best for children 7 and older.) The special effects are quite amazing; its one thing to see something occur on screen, but a definite challenge to make magic happen on a stage. Mary Poppins even flies in a couple of scenes (though if you sit in the very front of the theater, you can see the wires and mechanics that make it happen, unfortunately, spoiling the spell). Mary Poppins is one of the best shows Ive seen produced at the Broadway Palm. Go see it its a joyous, magical show that will make you feel like a child again. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Mary Poppins: The Musical>> When: through Aug. 12 >> Where: Broadway Palm, 1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers >> Cost: $40 to $65 ($20 for children 18 or younger) >> Info: 278-4422, www.broadwaypalm.com COURTESY PHOTOSMary Poppins arrives, with (from left) top row: Kylan Ritchie as Jane Banks and Liam Hutt as Michael Banks; bottom row: Meagan Mapson as Mrs. Brill, James Taylor Odom as George Banks, Melissa Whitworth as Mary Poppins, Desire Dillon as Winifred Banks and Danny Boman as Robertson Ay.

But by weeks end, a touch of Cancerian envy could create a problem with a colleague. Take care to keep it under control. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A new spurt of energy sends you roaring back into that challenging work situation. But be careful not to overdo it, or your sizzle could fizzle before your task is completed. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your practical sense helps you see the logic of being a bit more flexible with a workplace colleague. But you still have a ways to go before theres a true meeting of the minds. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A surprise situation could cause you to spend more money than you feel you can afford. But careful budget adjustments will help. Your fiscal picture soon brightens. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That decision you made might still have its detractors, but your supporters are growing. Meanwhile, your personal life takes on some welcome new developments. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Matters of the mind intrigue the sage Sagittarian through weeks end. By then, you should feel more than ready to make room for pursuits of the heart.

Time will tell if they are trying to pull the wool over the Lambs eyes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Congratulations. Your hard work soon pays off with some welldeserved recognition. Meanwhile, that important personal relationship needs more attention from you.

CAR SERVICE You deserve our elevated service. CONTRACT BRIDGEImmobilizing the defense BY STEVE BECKERThere is no difference between making a contract on its merits and making a contract because your opponents dont find the best defense. Many a contract is made because of a defensive error or misjudgment, and anything declarer can do to induce a misplay is a step in the right direction. Consider this case where West leads a diamond against four spades. South sees four losers a heart, two diamonds and a club and must try to avoid one of them. If the defenders could see Souths hand, they surely would stop the contract. But since declarers specific assets and liabilities are concealed from the prying eyes of the defense, he often can trade upon this advantage. Souths best method of play is to win the diamond in dummy and immediately return a low heart. East follows low, and the jack loses to the ace. The defenders cash two diamonds and switch to a club. Declarer wins with the king, draws trumps ending in dummy and leads the queen of hearts. This traps Easts king, and sooner or later South disposes of his club loser on one of dummys heart honors. The only way East can foil declarer is by rising with the king when the three of hearts is led from dummy at trick two. However, going up with the king of hearts is a lot easier when you see all four hands than when you see only the East hand and dummy. The fact is that not many players would make this play, and, in any case, nothing is lost by putting East to the test. Note that declarer makes his move as soon as possible without drawing trumps and without giving the defense the slightest inkling of what he is up to. 11121 HEALTH PARK BOULEVARD, #900, NAPLES, FL 34110 239.888.1151 tartine-tartelette.com $24.90 Per Person2 Courses + 1 Glass of Wine $49.90 For 22 Courses Per Person + 1 Bottle of Wine Available All Night!

BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you tell me what my favorite actor, Kevin Bacon, has been up to lately? Brian F., via emailA: The prolific and talented actor is currently working with Jason Blum on a pilot of his 1990 cult-hit comedy/horror movie Tremors. They are developing an eight-episode series based on the movie for the SyFy network. Kevin will star in and produce the series, returning as lead character Valentine McKee, a handyman in a small Nevada town who battles for his life, and the lives of the townsfolk, against giant man-eating sandworms. There is no word on whether any of the other stars of the movie will return, but then again, did anyone except Kevins character survive? Its been so long, I cant remember. Looks like I have my Friday movie night planned out! Q: Is it true that there is going to be another installment of my favorite scary movie, The Conjuring? Larry K., Galveston, TexasA: New Line recently announced that The Conjuring 3 is indeed in the works. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are expected to return as Ed and Lorraine Warren, the husband-and-wife team of paranormal researchers. The plot of this installment will come from the case files of the Warrens, and you can bet it will be just as scary as the first two films. Since its in the very early stages of development, details such as plot, premiere date, co-stars, etc., are not yet available. Q: Ive watched quite a few original Netflix feature films, and I always find them enjoyable and compelling. Can you tell me any new ones I should look out for? Xavier R., via emailA: I just got word that Netflix won the rights to an as-yet-untitled drama set in the art world and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo (one of my favorite actresses). The movie was written by Dan Gilroy, who also will direct. You may remember that Dan directed Jake and Renee in the film Nightcrawler, so itll be interesting to get the team back together and see what they create. If you want to get your Jake fill before then, his Netflix-original movie Okja, which recently competed at the Cannes Film Festival, is now available for streaming. It also stars Tilda Swinton and Paul Dano. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803; or email her at email@example.com.DEPOSITPHOTOSKEVIN BACON

FILM CAPSULESWar for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Harrelson). Thats right: Caesar only wants revenge on one guy, so theres not much war here at all. Its one of the many letdowns in this third part of the new Apes trilogy. Rated PG-13.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton) Spider-Man (Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor, and a winning performance from Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13.Despicable Me (Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker) Gru (Carell), his long-lost brother Dru (Carell again) and Lucy try to stop s inspired villain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) from destroying Hollywood. Too much focus on Carells two characters and not enough on the villain and story make this an uneven disappointment. Rated PG.The Beguiled (Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning) During the Civil War, a wounded Union soldier is taken in by Confederate women who subsequently compete for his attention. 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 cleverer 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 (Elliott) tries to reconcile his disappointing life after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Elliotts performance is stellar, but the story is underdeveloped and some important characters barely register. Rated R.Beatriz At Dinner (Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton) A masseuses (Hayek) car breaks down at her wealthy clients (Britton) home, so shes invited to stay for a dinner party that night, where she butts heads with a real estate mogul (Lithgow). The script wants to say a lot, yet it never figures out how to say it. The ambition for ripe social commentary is here, but not the execution. Rated R.Megan Leavey (Kate Mara, Common, Edie Falco) A Marine (Mara) and her bomb-sniffing dog bond and save lives in Iraq. Its a touching story that also shows how in many ways the dog saves her life as well. Rated PG-13.

Find a Location & View Our Menu at www.ribcity.com LATEST FILMSWar for the Planet of the ApesIs it worth $10? NoTheres not much war in War for the Planet of the Apes, which is a problem given that its called War for the Planet of the Apes. A better, more accurate title would have been Failed Diplomacy on the Planet of the Apes, though of course that wouldnt get anyone excited. War though, YEAH. An apesfighting-humans summer blockbuster give me some of that. It opens well, as an army battalion closes in on an ape stronghold. The humans think theyre at war, the apes just want to be left alone. Humans attack. Apes defend themselves. Its a nicely staged, edited and performed sequence, and gives hope for positive things to come. And then nothing. The apes talk about their feelings and soon were about to doze off. The dialog isnt well written. In fact, this may set the record for most subtitles in a big budget blockbuster. Its a given that people spending money to see a movie with this title dont want to read from the screen. This isnt a foreign film, after all. Now we do need to know what the apes are communicating, so why not let them all speak? Not just the leader, Caesar (Andy Serkis), all of them. Because heres the logical flaw in only Caesar speaking: How do the other apes understand English? Furthermore, when hes not facing other apes and they sign (language) something to him, he shouldnt be responding as if theyre in conversation when he cant see them. Apparently the other apes understand English perfectly, they just cant speak it. The few that try a word here and there, though, do just fine. I know. Im talking about logic in a movie about a talking ape and the humans trying to kill him. Perhaps my frustration is misguided. Lets instead put all the blame for the films failings on the misshapen story. After big bad Colonel McCullogh (Woody Harrelson) kills Caesars wife (Judy Greer) and son (Max Lloyd-Jones), Caesar vows to kill him. Important: Caesar vows to kill only McCullogh and no one else. Its not much of a war when the protagonist is only after one person. On Caesar goes, picking up help in the form of fellow apes Maurice (Karin Konoval), Luca (Michael Adamthwaite) and Rocket (Terry Notary). They also take pity on a human girl, Nova (Amiah Miller), and the kooky Bad Ape (Steve Zahn), so named because he used to be in a zoo and (presumably) thats what humans always said to him. Were supposed to feel bad for him. I didnt. As the chase evolves, nonsensical plot conveniences take over. The apes find the perfect people to join them on their journey, even in the most remote of places. Later, Nova walks straight into a restricted area completely undetected and assists incarcerated apes, apparently because the guards had gone to bed for the night. All that implausibility aside, director Matt Reeves film does feature tremendous visual effects. Because they seem so real its easy to forget the apes are created using performance capture animation, in which the actors movements are placed into a computer that subsequently renders the apes. Given that everything about the apes is created inside a computer, the details of the hair, facial expressions, light reflecting in the eyes and even tears are absolutely stunning. If you do see this, be sure to make an effort to marvel at the technology on display. In the opening credits, War for the Planet of the Apes provides a quick summary of predecessors Rise (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), which is good because the only thing I remembered about those two was how forgettable they were. Now having seen the third film, I hope the fourth will extend the same courtesy.

New luxury resort a compelling reason for a Key Largo getaway 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, 45-minute drive from Naples. 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 roof, 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 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 lagoon style 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: 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. Dolphin Cove. Swim or snorkel with Flippers friends in a natural lagoon at Dolphin Cove (www.dolphinsplus.com). 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. 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. 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, a photogenic beach shack at the edge of a pier where motor yachts are docked. Playa Lago Resort & Spa, 97450 Overseas Highway, Key Largo, 305-853-1001, www. playalargoresort.com. The Oceanfront resort has luxury rooms, suites and bungalows, plus a pool, spa and gourmet restaurants. Snorkel, dive, paddleboarding, kayaking and sunset excursions available. Room rates start at $249. A beach view at Playa Largo. MARY THURWACHTER / FLORIDA WEEKLY The resort has pools, cabanas, fire pits and watersport programs including kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, diving, boating and ocean excursions.

C24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Tea & Spice Exchange announced a soft opening and celebration during normal operating hours on Saturday, July 29. The new store, located at 800 Fifth Ave. S., will offer over 140 fine spices, 75 hand-mixed blends and 30 loose-leaf teas. While perusing a store that resembles an 18th century trading post and lined with apothecary jars, guests are encouraged to open jars and experience the stores heady aromas while watching spice masters mix the contents by hand. We chose Fifth Avenue South because it is truly a unique shopping destination for visitors and locals. The charm and old world grace together with the Neapolitan-friendly atmosphere makes it a perfect fit for what we offer.

Matthew Kragh, founder and owner of MHK Architecture, and Naples chef David Nelson announced they will open Timeless An MHK Eatery on Monday, Aug. 7, at 90 Tamiami Trail S. In a space inspired by Kraghs Old Florida architectural designs, the pair will offer casual dining, delivery and snacking opportunities that highlight Nelsons flair with simple, fresh ingredients. The restaurant will offer several sit-down areas including a restaurant and open kitchen with counter seating; wine beer and pizza lounge with an indoor/outdoor, and coffee and espresso bar; and a counter for take out and delivery services. Having worked in downtown Naples for more than a decade and seeing many dining establishments come and go, Matt and I found that the neighborhood was missing a bakery, and eatery that offered fresh morning bagels, grab and go eggs as well as artisan sandwiches, a light lunch with organic salads and proteins, and the great American staple hot, fresh pizza delivered to your door, said Chef Nelson. Timeless will fill this void in the neighborhood under one roof. We will combine Matts vision and my culinary expertise to bring our unique concept to life, and provide the neighborhood with not only a quick grab and go breakfast and lunch joint, but a casual yet refined eatery that offers a snacking, drinking and dining option for residents, businesspeople and tourists alike. The restaurant will be open daily from 7 a.m. until after midnight. For more information, call 331-4013 or visit www.timelesseatery.com.

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 better understand food allergies. 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 peanut-containing 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 peanutavoiding 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. Talk with your health care provider to learn more about preventing and treating food allergies.

Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling operates on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Rodizio Grill, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago Drive, Estero; (239) 498-0018. The latest dining addition at Coconut Point re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-can-eat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding three-foot skewers and scary looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, one of which is that you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. We sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items including some exquisitely tender hearts. The tritip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Bacon-wrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 Sophias Ristorante Italiano, 3545 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 597-0744. Tucked between a Harley-Davidson dealership and a Hawthorne Suites sits a gem of a restaurant that seems as if its been lifted right out of Italy. Sophias is filled with lovely Tuscan browns and golds with mosaic patterns on tables and floors. The staff is uniformly gracious and some also come with charming Italian accents. And the food try not to overload on the house-made breads served with herb-studded olive oil. The fried calamari was excellent but I could have made a meal of the tendercrisp rapini and well-seasoned sausage with polenta. The zuppe de pesce is a remarkable mountain of seafood but veal is a specialty here and the osso buco, a special that evening, was forktender and delicious with a side of porcini risotto. Sea bass with clams, caperberries and house-made linguini was just right. For dessert, the tiramisu was light, delicious and ample for two. The wine list is noteworthy as well. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2015 The Crust, 8004 Trail Blvd., Naples; 244-8488. This popular pizza spot at the Pavilion Shopping Center has added a second, much-needed larger location just a few miles away on U.S. 41. About four times the size of the original (which remains open), it serves the same Midwest-style pizza in the former Big Als space. Try an old-fashioned soda we loved the Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush made with real sugar rather than highfructose corn syrup. A Caesar was fresh with a mild dressing. A house salad had good ingredients but needed a more assertive dressing than the house-made Champagne vinaigrette. A 10-inch BBQ pizza had a thin, crisp crust topped with smoky barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onions, smoked gouda, provolone and cilantro.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINE REVIEWSydneys offers a glimpse of Tiburon grandeur even to non-membersIve admired the lush Tiburon golf course from afar, primarily while dining at nearby Lemonia at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, which offers a splendid view of the course. But I recently discovered that Sydneys Pub, situated within the Tiburon Clubhouse, is open to the public as well. This time of year its primarily serving lunch, although during season and on some evenings during the summer theres dinner as well. The lunch menu is casual but wellrounded, offering soups, flatbreads, sandwiches and some hot entrees. Salads come in small and large versions with optional protein add-ons. The dining room is long and on the narrow side but that affords virtually every table a decent-to-excellent view of the golf course below. It was a supersunny day and, despite the high temperatures, there were plenty of golfers out and about. Our server was quick to appear and offer us beverages. My bloody Mary ($12) was impressive. The spicy concoction was presented in a large glass with a crisp stalk of celery, two extra-large green olives and wedges of both lime and lemon. It was the perfect antidote to a scorching hot day. My companions glass of Kim Crawford sauvignon blanc ($12) was also served well chilled. The days soup was New England clam chowder ($4), which sounded like a great start to the meal and it was. The soup was hot and full of chunks of potato, celery and clams. It wasnt overly thick, as some chowders are, and was nicely seasoned. It was accompanied by oyster crackers and a package of Saltine crackers. The slow-roasted pear salad ($9 or $13) appealed to my companion with a menu description that included baby arugula, Humboldt fog cheese, sweet and spicy pecans and a blood orangesherry vinaigrette. He ordered the smaller version, which arrived with a lovely wedge of the wondrous goat-milk cheese on top. There was just one thing missing from the roasted pear salad: the roasted pears. We notified our server who apologized and quickly went to retrieve said pears, bringing us a double portion to make up for the oversight. Once we added the pears to the salad, it was an excellent dish, the pears and that creamy cheese blending well, with the pecans adding a satisfying crunch. The roasted salmon sandwich ($16) on a brioche bun also came with fresh herbs and avocado aioli and was listed as one of the healthy options on the menu. The salmon was properly cooked and the combination was tasty. My companion managed to counteract some of that sandwichs healthfulness by choosing house fries to accompany it. They were crisp, hot and just salty enough. (Other options include kettle chips, cole slaw or fresh fruit.) From the pressed sandwiches, I ordered the roasted turkey and Brie ($14). It comes with Fuji apple slices and lingonberry mayonnaise. Unfortunately, theres also a roasted turkey and caprese pressed sandwich, which is what our server thought I said and thats what arrived at the table. I took a bite before I realized I had the wrong sandwich. Once again, our server apologized and offered to either take the cost of the sandwich off our bill or have the kitchen prepare the sandwich Id ordered. I didnt love the caprese and so asked for my original choice. To its credit, the kitchen hustled and the sandwich arrived in a very short time. The turkey, gooey Brie and crisp apples made for a delicious pairing. There was a disappointingly scant amount of lingonberry mayo but the Brie added enough moisture to make the sandwich work. A side of cole slaw was cold and crisp. Im not sure if they offer desserts for lunch but our server brought us a couple of white chocolate chip macadamia cookies, perhaps to atone for the errors during our meal. He offered us two more when we finished those. We were full and declined. He also discounted the salad by half and took my sandwich off the bill altogether, gestures that werent necessary but spoke well of the staffs training. No one is perfect but its the way in which mistakes are dealt with that often makes the difference between a good and bad experience. Sydneys is a lovely, quiet and refreshing space in which to while away an hour or two and enjoy a salad or sandwich. I spotted someone tucking into a substantial bowl of fish and chips so those who want something heartier can find that as well. If you are curious about how upscale golf clubs look and feel, the staff of Sydneys Pub is willing and able to assist you.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC.JEAN LOSIERIt takes talent and patience to get a room just right, and interior designer Jean Losier has plenty of both. Luxe Livings Michael Korb chatted with Ms. Losier about how she became a designer and how she approaches her work. Q: Was there a moment you decided you wanted to be an interior designer? A: In retrospect yes, I was a manager in the clothing industry five years after getting out of college, and my youngest was three years old. I enjoyed my job but knew I wanted to do more. I knew I loved the everyday challenge of space planning the gallery floor and creating new displays and the relationships I had made with my regular and new clients. I knew then that I wanted to go back to school and get my degree in interior design. I felt a degree in interior design would complement my existing fine arts degree and retail management skills. I spent three years studying to earn my BA in interior design alongside working with a small design firm in Tampa. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: I graduated with my BA from The International Academy of Merchandising and Design, an ASID accredited school, in 1997. I continued to work with the same small design firm in Tampa, but I knew I needed to find a company that I could learn from and allow me to grow in my field. I was hired in the spring of 1999 by Robb & Stucky, (then owned by the Lubner family) and this was where I really learned the basics in the field. As a visual merchandiser and librarian, I learned furniture manufacturers and fabrics quickly. Within a year I was promoted to run a selection room for two custom builders. I assisted in every color selection, recording, pricing and drafting all designs. After running the selection room for five years, our company moved to a large gallery in Tampa where I was then a full-time designer working with my own clients. When the Lubner family started Clive Daniel Home, I was thrilled to work with them again and have been at CDH for three years. Q: Do you have a formula for how you build out a room? A: In creating a space it always starts with the flooring this is the largest and most important selection in the room. The flooring touches all and affects all finishes, fabrics, and colors. Ceiling details, if there are tall ceilings in the space, I always find this is an opportunity to give the space a personal touch. The wall color would be the next selection in the space, which would be determined by the coloring of the flooring if it is cool or warm. If there is a large wall space, again this is an opportunity to warm things up with a simple detail or playing with an additional color or texture. Having created the physical space you would now need to know how this space was going to being used and then create a furniture space plan according to the clients needs and wants. The furniture selection process would then follow along with fabrics, window treatments, rugs and accessories. Q: Whats the first thing you ask clients when you meet them? A: When meeting with a client it is not just about finding out what their design needs are but what their lifestyle is like. In Florida, many residents and families live here part time so it is important to know what their needs are. What is their family dynamic? Do they have children and what age are they? Do they have pets? Do they work from home? Do they like to entertain a lot? It really is an interviewing process. The more I know about my client and understand their needs and concerns, I can create a design that is unique reflect their personality and their lifestyle. of Clive Daniel Home found her callingDESIGNER Q&A Coastal design today can have many different looks. This particular home in Talis park is a very relaxed transitional, shabby-chic look. The dining room has a lot of natural finishes which to me really brings the outdoors in. This table is made of teak with a cement veneered top mixed with relaxed, textured linen chairs. All of this sits on top of large porcelain wood-look tiles that have the coloring of a salty dock.

Agostinos Fine Furnishings N o 69016 6 LUXE LIVING JULY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentA talented interior designer can take a cardboard box and make it look like it belongs on the pages of a glamorous magazine. And based on the before and after photos of this condo on Gulf Shore Boulevard, it looks like the owners of this former box made the right decision calling designer Rene Gaddis of Renee Gaddis Interiors. The homeowners bought the 3,224-square foot three-bedroom, fourbathroom property as is and wanted to completely gut the interior shell of the condo. The original layout was not particularly open, and because of that, it missed some great opportunities to take advantage of the view. It was mostly original, says Ms. Gaddis. You could tell immediately after you walked in how dated everything was. The counter tops, the tile in all the bathrooms, the cabinetry in the kitchen and wall-coverings that you would see years ago... Even the floor tiles in the main living areas had that hideous builders grade look about them and had to go. We replaced it with a beautiful, stained wood floor and coordinated matching ceiling beams in the living room and kitchen to help add additional lighting in all of those areas, adds Ms. Gaddis. The ceiling we were working with was (concrete) slab so we had to come down in order to get lighting which was definitely necessary. The owners are from up north and so they wanted some of that Naples/ beachy vibe, but they wanted a bit of rustic flair to it as well hence the rustic, reclaimed beams. And because the homeowners have a son and daughter who visit, they wanted dedicated guest bedrooms for each. And though you dont see it, Gaddis created a den for the couple to use as a home office. Perhaps the most impactful transformation came in the main living area where Gaddis removed walls in order to create the open concept floor plan everyone loves. The kitchen was enclosed into a very small space, says Ms. Gaddis. But we were able to open that up to the living room as well as the breakfast area to give it one long view. Its awesome. The kitchen is a perfect example of how to use a mix of finishes to pull a look together. Though the light fixtures are brass, the hardware elsewhere is a darker finish with some nickel. She also mixed bright white cambria quartz countertops on the perimeter with soapstone on the island. The other area that we really opened up was the master bedroom and bathroom, adds Ms. Gaddis. Before it had a lot of different angles to the space and we opened it up so the master bedroom is one large space. And the walkway to their master bathroom was cleared up. We took some walls down there as well as in the bath in order to get a tub and shower in there. Before it was a ton smaller. They even have a more expansive closet than before. It really just came down to knocking out some walls that didnt make sense. In the end its a rare triumph of blending rustic, coastal and modern into an eclectic winner. Its hard to imagine it once looked like a cardboard box.

8 LUXE LIVING JULY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe beauty of Naples is that anything is possible. Whatever you desire can be yours. And if you desire new construction that is also convenient to the best of North Naples, all you have to do is write a check to The Lutg ert Companies. Its new Residences at Mercato gives homebuyers access to all the restaurants, nightlife and shops the area is known for but with the privacy of gated single family living. The La Ciel model shown here is a 3,037 square foot (under air), three-bedroom (plus cabana), four-and-a-half bath single-family residence that takes coastal contemporary to the next level. Designed by MHK Architecture & Planning, the dramatic interior spaces give homeowners the wow factor they crave while still maintaining livability. It features 24-foot ceilings in the spacious great room with 10and 12-foot ceilings elsewhere. That height allowed for a terrific (and equally dramatic) loft, which overlooks the main living area. It also features a perfect workstation area for those who still need a place to pay the bills. Two story homes allow you to create some volume spaces, says Mike Hoyt, senior vice president of T he Lutg ert Companies. It gives you the space that people are looking for. But we keep the master bedroom on the first floor so that it appeals to folks who may not be crazy about climbing stairs. Elevators are an option in all of the two-story homes, though this particular home doesnt have one. Again, you can have anything youre willing to pay for. In fact, though this home was beautifully handled by designer Jean Losier of Clive Daniel Home, you can create something unique to you through upgrades or other design options. They wanted a coastal feel, but not a traditional coastal feel, says Ms. Losier. Something a bit more transitional or edgy. So thats my inspiration right there. They wanted colors as well. With this model I did things that reminded me of the water, but in a different way than having seashells or palm trees all over the place, adds Ms. Losier. We were lucky to find that split-faced stone which brought in all those greys and almost greenish blues. And we carried that outside for the pool wall I think its important that the inside and outside reflect each other. In fact, the first thing that catches your eye upon entering the home is that spectacular stone wall that houses an offset linear fireplace and television. Its a major player in the homes wow factor and draws the eye upward to the equally dramatic coffered ceiling with tongue-and-groove inserts, which stretch across to the second floor. COVER STORY The Residences at Mercato take space to great heights the great room Rockin The spacious master bedroom features a grass cloth accent wall behind the bed as well as grass cloth inserts among the wood grill on the ceiling. The suite opens out onto the outdoor living space/pool and spa area (above). The home features a cabana with full bath for guests who prefer a little more privacy, but who want to be close to the pool.NAPLES KENNY / COURTESY PHOTOS
FLORIDA WEEKLY JULY 2017 LUXE LIVING 9 You are looking straight up at a massive ceiling, says Ms. Losier. And when you are in the loft you are at that ceiling level, so youre looking straight across at that architectural detail. The loft is easily one of the best rooms in a house filled with great spaces. But, like the loft, the kitchen also looks onto the great room and blends perfectly with the transitional look. Sleek lines and classic, rich colors make this kitchen visually appealing regardless of what your cooking prowess might look like. Orchid canyon granite surfaces over mushroom-colored lower cabinetry (brilliant white uppers with super-high glass inserts up top) and a Bosch appliance package look classic and fresh all at once. And a grey glass subway tile backsplash ties it all together seamlessly. And the flooring throughout (except the two upstairs bedrooms, which got carpeting) is a tile than not only looks like real wood, it is significantly easier to maintain. It looks so good, in fact, Losier chose to have it be an accent wall in the master bathroom, behind the sculptural stand alone tub. This home also features an outside shower as part of the master bath, and it also incorporates the splitface stone found in the great room. The master suite itself opens onto the homes outdoor living area. And therein lies the real appeal of The Residences at Mercato. Each have their own pools and the courtyards are quite intimate, says Mr. Hoyt. We designed many of them to have water features and other hardscape features such as brick walls or natural stone walls. But we kept them fairly maintenance light so that they arent a big burden on the homeowner or the homeowners association. They can lay by their pool and not worry about other people or other peoples grandkids or whatever. All of the homes come with privates pools, but the water features are an upgrade. But certainly worth considering. It does two things, adds Hoyt. It creates a little extra visual interest out there and it drowns out the noise from the outside world. Which makes sense because there is a bustling world right next door filled with people yelling, Why isnt there more parking outside of Whole Foods?!?! Luckily, if you lived here, you wouldnt be one of them. The Lutg ert Companies lutgert.com; 261-6100 Clive Daniel Home clivedaniel.com; 261-4663Spending time in the loft gives guests an upclose and personal look at the dramatic great room and tongue-and-groove coffered ceiling. The master bath works the drama by pulling the faux wood floor tile up the wall behind the sculptural stand-alone tub. An outdoor shower is just steps away.
