MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYThe gun sales bandwagonThat new NRA television ad is a beautiful thing the one with the perfectly coiffed Dana Loesch sneering into the camera and telling us to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I am the NRA of America, and I am freedoms safest place. Right on, baby! Freedoms safest place is the National Rifle Association. I wish somebody besides Ms. Loesch, a strident talk-show host and NRA spokeswoman, had told me this earlier. I thought the U.S. Constitution was freedoms safest place. Adam Putnam, Floridas commissioner of agriculture and a Republican gubernatorial candidate, found the ad a beautiful thing, too, but perhaps for different reasons than I. Both of us like guns but I only shoot them. The Department of Agriculture, on the other hand, issues gun permits in Florida. Mr. Putnam has fast-tracked 82,000 concealed carry permits for National Guardsmen and reservists, recently, and aggressively promoted the carrying of guns on campus, as well as open carry in the state. (Point of fact: Unless they shoot all the time and most of them dont National Guardsmen and reservists under pressure probably couldnt hit the broadside of a terrorist butt at 25 feet with a handgun.) When a small gaggle of progressives stumbled around Tampa last week complaining about the NRA and the ad, which seems to impugn protesting itself as antiAmerican, Mr. Putnam slapped them with a fast Facebook insult: Classic progressive move, he wrote. Desperate attempt to limit our 2nd Amendment rights. Horsepucky. If Second Amendment rights include joining the NRA advertising campaign to sell more guns, gun products and gun paranoia, then Mr. Putnam is doing a good job defending them. For the first time. The Polk County career politician has never actually held a real job in his adult life, so hawking guns for a huge sales outfit like the NRA marks a new beginning for the man. He entered the Florida legislature at 22 after graduating with a degree in food and resource economics from the University of Florida, where he was a frat boy at Alpha Gamma Rho. He served in Tallahassee until he won the 12th District seat to the U.S. House of Representatives four years later, in 2001, when he was 26. He then served as a United States congressman in Washington for 10 years before giving up IB (Inside-theBeltway) to win his seat as commissioner of agriculture in Florida, joining Gov. Rick Scott in the capitol at the beginning of 2011. But those youthful days in the role of golden boy, a kid playing on the Republican team but not leading it, is almost over. In May, Mr. Putnam announced his candidacy for governor in 2018. On the last day of this month hell turn 43. With 20 years of elected leadership under his belt, apparently he remains too young to figure out the first obvious truth: When it comes to guns and Second Amendment rights, the NRA TV advertisement has nothing to do with either. Heres what Ms. Loesch says in the 65-second NRA pitch: They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance. All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia, to smash windows and burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law abiding, until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness. And when that happens, theyll use it as an excuse for their outrage. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight these violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I am the NRA of America, and I am freedoms safest place. Thats just gorgeous. The potent verbs alone stand up and shout like little soldiers: People who protest assassinate, they scream, they smash, they burn, they shut down, they bully, and they terrorize, among other actions, Ms. Lausch claims. Who cares if our founding fathers were protestors? Who cares if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and before him Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce were protestors? If Thomas Bennett and Desmond Doss, posthumous Medal of Honor winners in Vietnam and at Okinawa both conscientious objectors were protestors? Who cares if Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama and (occasionally) the Pope are protestors, even though theyre un-American, the poor fools? Not Mr. Putnam. He never thought of it. As for the Second Amendment, it has nothing to do with gun bunnies wandering through 21st-century college campuses, day care centers, movie theaters, airports, bars, libraries, or government and justice centers. Instead, the venerable Second, modified by the 1791 Militia Act, requires white men between 18 and 45 to maintain muskets, powder and ball in case the president has to call them up to put down invasions from across our borders or insurrections from within. Now, 227 years after the Second was ratified, nobody is trying to take our guns away. But some people would prefer not to have wackos with guns walking around peaceful places. Maybe youre one of those people, somebody whod like to feel secure. Maybe Adam Putnam is another. He seems like a nice reasonable guy to me, some of the time. If you are, and if Mr. Putnam is such a person, then I hope you both will recognize that climbing on the sales bandwagon for the NRA is probab ly not how to be secure. h s p s A a roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

President Trump headed to the G20 Summit and some Americans were glad to see him go. He left behind a contentious pot on the stove bubbling with foreign and domestic issues ready to boil over. The New York Times was about to publish a blockbuster story regarding Trumps eldest son, Donald Jr. It would reveal another brick in the wall of relationships connecting all things Trump to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Meanwhile, an all-male committee of 13 Senate Republicans, led by majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) continued to meet in secrecy to carpenter together a plan to blow up Obamacare. They sought to replace it with a national health care program only the radical right could love. As Senate Republicans diddled with their plan, North Korea launched missiles. The act was in defiance of global efforts to persuade its dictator, Kim Jong Un, to chill out, for Gods sake. In Europe, our allies of 70 years were in doubt about the future leadership of the U.S. in the free world. American foreign policy had its nationalistic facelift on display. Our lone-wolf posture on climate change shattered what was otherwise a global consensus on the threat of climate change to humanity. We turned our back to the world. It was a let them eat weather, moment. Back at home, just prior to the publication of the Times story, Trump Jr. made a preemptive move to come clean and disclose an unreported meeting last summer with Russian wheeler-dealers. He tweeted out emails dating back to June 2016. They revealed the meetings purpose was to discuss an offer of secret Russian government intelligence damaging to Clintons presidential campaign. Trump Jr. said he loved the idea and lets do it. Though the NYT unearthed the revelation, Trump Jr. gave himself the credit for the big reveal. But he insisted nothing of practical use was learned. The meeting was, he said with a sniff, a waste of time a big fat nothing burger, as his defenders are wont to say. But his assertions did not stick. Topnotch reporting scrubbed the narrative of serial falsehoods. Multiple shoes started to drop. Thou dost protest too much tolled like a bell as the White House and Donald Jr. made lame attempts to cover up. But the truth proved otherwise. Nothing burger will go down in the lexicon of American slang as political speak for the flagrant lies one tells to cover ones ass and deny the truth. The president, meanwhile, concedes nothing, saying most people would have done just as his son did. Never mind patriotic, ethical and/or legal considerations and that a foreign, adversarial government was the source of the slime. It was, he claims, just your typical opposition research. That this form of political treachery might rise to the level of sedition never crossed his mind and he is the guy Americans expect to defend the country from its foes. As all this went down, Sen. McConnell and his committee unveiled the Senate version of the American Healthcare Act. It is a dog. It sustains billions in cuts to Medicaid. Millions of the most medically vulnerable would lose their coverage. Costs for older American would skyrocket. Coverage of preexisting conditions would be dumped. Junk policies sold on the cheap would offer little protection. Planned Parenthood would be axed. Millions of women would be denied reproductive health care services. And thats not even the half of it. The Senate plan failed because it was either too bad for some or not bad enough for others. The legislative process producing it was a debacle undemocratic, shameful and dishonest to the core. Its death was deserved because, it was, from beginning to end, an indecent proposal; and a complete failure of the most practical kind of politics, the kind Theodore Roosevelt called the politics of decency. The Republican Party and its majority in Congress have surrendered their claim to political decency. They have surrendered to Trumpism. Trumpism is a throwback to the 1950s and the politics of destruction epitomized by Sen. Joseph McCarthy. McCarthyism met its demise because its namesake was asked a simple question: Have you no sense of decency, sir? It is the question Americans should be asking the purveyors of Trumpism and of Trump himself. There is nothing decent about a health care plan that is designed to inflict cruelty and suffering on poor and middle-class Americans. There nothing decent about the political sabotage of Obamacare, to ignore what needs fixing, putting health coverage at risk for millions of people who have protection for the first time. There is nothing decent about a Congress or Executive Branch that makes a mockery of democratic norms, ethical standards, honesty, integrity and the rule of law, lacking both accountability and a modicum of selfcontrol. Its political indecency. Trumpism is not about Republicans versus the Democrats. It is about wrong versus right.

Ever since Donald Trumps election, it has been a journalistic trope to speculate that China is about to take the lead on globalization, climate change and international diplomacy. Knowing his audience, President Xi Jinping has stoked this tripe by mouthing all the right cliches in front of the right audiences. He gave a speech at Davos heavy on the theme of openness and promised to help lead globalization. Any attempt to cut off the flow of capital, technologies, products, industries and people between economies, Xi said, summoning his best Thomas Friedman, is simply not possible. Somehow, China manages the impossible nonetheless. When it comes to information (which Xi omitted from his litany), China cuts itself off from the rest of the world quite adeptly. According to the pro-democracy group Freedom House, China ranks last in the world in internet freedom, behind Iran and Syria. It blocks Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and jails people for spreading rumors online, i.e., criticizing government officials. How about the free flow of capital? China has tight rules against capital outflows. Technology? China is an expert at stealing it, especially from foreign companies operating in China. Products? Despite its membership in the World Trade Organization, China is robustly mercantilist. Brad Setser of the Council on Foreign Relations points out that imported manufactures as a share of the Chinese economy peaked in 2003 and have been falling since. What Xi calls win-win cooperation is the rest of the world opening its markets to China while China refuses to reciprocate. Xi also toes the Davos line on climate change, to the delight of credulous Westerners. Chinas leadership consists of making a pledge as part of the Paris accords to reach peak emissions in 2030 a goal consistent with the trajectory of its economy anyway and planning to make a mint by selling to the West green technology it has developed through its characteristic unscrupulous means. There is no doubt that China, the worlds second-largest economy, is much more assertive on the international stage than it used to be, but the idea of it as a global leader, or as a responsible power, or even as an admirable country is daft. It props up the lunatic regime in North Korea because it fears the prospect of a unified, democratic Korea. It is pushing for control of the South China Sea, ignoring a sweeping ruling by an international tribunal against its claims of sovereignty. It is investing massively in its military and not to support the cause of global openness. Clearly, one motive for the dewyeyed press coverage of Chinas purported leadership is a distaste for Donald Trump, who wears his disregard for the global elite on his sleeve. The romance with Xi is a way to tweak him. But, whatever his views on trade or climate change, Trump doesnt run a repressive one-party state. Its perverse to be more comfortable with the president who bans Twitter over the president who uses it indiscriminately.

The commissioners and the previous fire chief, Orly Stoltz, promised that by using a cost allocation method, the finances of each district will be tracked and maintained separately to ensure one district is not subsidizing the other. The cost allocation method promised was later changed by the commissioners, without voter approval, resulting in North Naples taxpayers subsidizing the operations of the Big Corkscrew Fire District. Another broken promise was agreeing to reduce the millage rate (tax rate) citizens pay for fire services, and then deciding not to follow through. In 2015, after the voters approved the referendum to merge fire districts, the fire commissioners reduced the tax rate in both districts as promised. The North Naples tax rate was lowered by 0.05 mills, and the Big Corkscrew the tax rate will also lowered by 0.05 mills (1.0 mill = $1 per $1,000; 0.05 mills = 5 cents per $1,000). When our fire commissioners comment on how successful the merger was, they always mention that, We kept our promise and lowered your tax rate. Lowering the tax rate makes a great public relations comment, but the truth is that the actual amount is not that significant. What is significant is breaking your promise. At next years budget workshop coming up next month, the fire commissioners are planning to restore the 0.05 millage rate reduction. They plan on increasing the tax rate in North Naples to 1.0 or 1.01 mills and the tax rate in Big Corkscrew to as much as 3.62 mills. Its important for citizens and taxpayers alike to understand how our fire district taxes are calculated so that you understand why your taxes have increased each year since the merger. If you are interested, keep reading; but the main point of this commentary is that our fire commissioners are again breaking faith with the voters and taxpayers by increasing the tax rate. Fire district taxes are ad valorem taxes, which in Latin means according to its worth referring to the value of our homes. The value of our homes for tax purposes is calculated by the county property appraiser and referred to as assessed value. Assessed value is significantly less than the selling/asking price of your home. The millage rate is set by the taxing authority, in this case the North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District. The formula for fire district taxes is as follows: Ad valorem taxes = (assessed value of your home) x (millage rate). Using this formula, it is easy to understand that as the value of your property increases (a paper calculation), the amount of taxes you pay (a cash transaction) increases even if the millage rate is unchanged. Next fiscal year, 1) if the value of your property increases, and 2) the millage rate increases, you will get a double whammy. Or, can you say double taxation without representation? Speak up! Its your money and your fire district; you elect the commissioners and pay all the expenses of the North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District. Important! Email Chairman Norman Feeder, of the North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District at email@example.com and tell him not to raise your tax or millage rate. Remember, the amount of taxes you pay has already increased each year since the merger. The budget workshop takes place from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 10, at Station 45, 1885 Veterans Park Drive in North Naples. All are welcome. Richard Hoffman, CPA, was a commissioner with the North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District from November 2014 to December 2016.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member CCSO investigating Golden Gate burglary and sexual batteryThe Collier County Sheriffs Office is encouraging people to secure their homes and report suspicious activity as detectives continue to investigate a burglary and sexual battery reported around 4 a.m. July 23, in Golden Gate. Detectives are working to determine whether this crime is related to two earlier sexual batteries in Golden Gate that have been linked to each other. The first took place Aug. 1, 2016. The second was reported on June 18 this year. Residents should call 911 to report suspicious activity such as someone roaming through neighborhoods late at night or in the predawn hours. The most recent crime took place at a residence north of Golden Gate Parkway and east of Santa Barbara Boulevard. Detectives say a Hispanic male entered the home and attacked the woman while she slept. Anyone with information is asked to contact the CCSO at 252-9300 or, if you wish to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, call Crime Stoppers at 800-780-8477. CCSO offers free home security surveys during which a specialist will come to your home and assess locks, lighting and landscaping and recommend ways that security can be enhanced. To schedule a home security survey, call the CCSO Crime Prevention Bureau at 252-0700.

Myers Phone: 1.844.261.1520 Professional And Career Education.Maximize your potential BEHIND THE WHEELHalf a world difference between the Hyundai Elantra and Elantra GTWant instant credibility? Buy a hatchback. While this segment will never have the top-selling cars, the manufacturers are taking notice that people who buy them are typically a bit wealthier, more active and are better educated. A hatchbacks tall rear opening and folding rear seats give it the cargo capacity to rival a small crossover. Companies like to think that it appeals to rising executives who like to drive sporty cars but also need room for their weekend surfboards. In reality, the practical hauling capability of a hatchback is attractive to anyone of any age who has ever been to IKEA. This interest in the hot hatch market is igniting something new at Hyundai. The company has been offering an Elantra GT in the U.S. for over five years, but now its time to really take notice. The outgoing car was solid, well equipped and sensible. The new 2018 hatchback retains those values and adds one more essential element: excitement. Hyundais Elantra shares many of its exterior design cues with the i30, a model thats offered elsewhere in the world. The real difference between the two is under the skin. The i30 is tuned to be nimbler on the narrow roads of Europe and Asia. In fact, the sedan version of the Elantra will continue to be produced in Alabama and cater to the comfortable tastes of mainstream America. But the hatchback-only Elantra GT is imported directly from the i30 factory in South Korea. So once the hatchback arrives at dealers later this summer, its good for shoppers to know that theres a half-worlds difference between the Elantra sedan and the Elantra GT. Up front, the GT gets the new grille thats a little more fluid than the trapezoid leading the sedan. The body was given a sleeker profile with aerodynamic improvements. And of course, the hatchbacks rear end makes it quite distinctive against the sedan. Inside is where the i30s influence is seen on the distinct infotainment and climate control layouts not currently shared with the sedan. Plus, the optional red accents on the dash, steering wheel, and stitching makes it feel like a rival for a European hot hatch. There are even sports seats with the right bolstering to give a true performance car feeling. But all the enhanced appearance would be an empty gesture if the engineering couldnt back it up. And Hyundai understood this, too. The steering feels light but precise. And the suspension has been paired nicely with the tires so there are no surprises going around corners at speed. Theres also a GT Sport model that is far more than just a trim package. It adds a sport-tuned suspension with better spring rates, larger wheels and larger brakes. It also trades the standard GTs torsion beam axle rear end for a fully independent unit. Those who have enjoyed the perennial benchmark the VW Golf GTI may even find this model nearly as exciting. The base 2.0-liter four-cylinder makes 162 horsepower. Its 15 hp more than the same engine in the sedan, but 11 hp less than the solo offering in the outgoing model. This conservative baseline power is understandable as the new Sport model now comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged power plant that churns out 201 hp. Both of these engines can be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission. And the Sport even has a seven-speed dualclutch gearbox (the kind of quick-shift automatic found in todays best sports cars.) To be fair, the Elantra sedan has a Sport trim level that already offers the 1.6-liter turbo, seven-speed transmission, and fully independent suspension. But thats more of an incognito machine. The GT has the extra flair that goes beyond its versatile hatch. When the new 2018 Elantra GT hits the road in August, expect it to start around $20K and add a couple thousand more for the hotter Sport model (Hyundai is still figuring out exact pricing.) That will soundly undercut the VW Golf GTI but will also put it in the direct crosshairs of other performance-minded hatches like the Honda Civic, Toyota iM and Mazda3. In true Hyundai fashion, the company is betting that its long list of standard features will make its car distinctive. After all, these hatch buyers are better educated, so arent they supposed to make the intelligent choice? mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Animal attractionGood fortune quickly turned to horror for a man in Allyn, Wash., who scored some raccoon roadkill to use as crab-trap bait on June 25. As the unidentified man walked toward home dragging the carcass behind him on a 15-foot rope (so he couldnt smell it), two different vehicles stopped, and their occupants, mistakenly thinking he was dragging a dead dog, began berating the would-be fisherman. As the dispute heated up, someone produced a gun, shooting the man twice in the leg before he was struck by one of the vehicles as the assailants fled.Family valuesFlower girls at weddings often steal the show, and Georgiana Arlt of Chaska, Minn., was no exception as she walked down the aisle on July 1. The 92-year-old grandmother of the bride, Abby Arlt, told her granddaughter the only other wedding she had been in was her own, when she was 20 years old. Abby had hoped to have her grandfather as the ring bearer, but he passed away last year.Bright ideasIn New Hampshire on June 29, a state police officer stopped the 57-year-old driver of a Honda Odyssey minivan who had piled a Beverly Hillbillies-esque stack of belongings on top of his car. The collection, which was about as tall as the minivan, included a wooden chest, a bike, a floor lamp, a rake, a snow shovel, a moving dolly and a folding ladder, along with blankets and towels and a shopping cart full of items hanging off the back. Police cited the driver for negligent driving, and the car was towed away.Sorry I missed itA Canada Day parade in southern Ontario sparked a flood of typically mild protests over Dave Szuszs float, which featured a 3-meter-tall blow-up Jesus (holding a baby sheep) and several real sheep. I thought it was kind of sad to see sheep out with very loud blasting music, out in the heat in the city, said animal rights activist Dan MacDonald. Others flooded Szusz with complaints on Facebook. Szusz and MacDonald have since talked it out, although MacDonald still hopes Szusz will discontinue using sheep on his floats.Suspicions confirmedKaren Leclair, 51, of Albion, Pa., was reported missing on June 11 by her commercial fisherman husband, Christopher, 48, after she went over the side of his boat on Lake Erie. Christopher told police he hadnt been watching when his wife fell overboard. When her body washed ashore on July 4 in upstate New York, however, she had a gunshot wound in her head, and she was bound by nylon fishing rope and weighted with an anchor. Christopher was charged with her murder after the gun used to shoot Karen was found under a bed in their home.Oops What seemed like the best hideand-seek idea ever took a frightening turn on July 6 in Colonial Heights, Va., when a 12-year-old girl became stuck in a sleeper sofa. Another child called 911 when she couldnt free her friend. Ive never seen anything like it, said fire chief A.G. Moore. When she got out, she was fine. In Green Bay, Wis., a driver crossing the Walnut Street Bridge on June 22 disregarded the traffic arm and drove around it onto the drawbridge as it was opening. His van ascended the opening span, but then rolled back down into the gap between the stationary bridge and the moveable span. Green Bay Metro firefighters, concerned that the van might slip through the gap, cut a hole in its roof to rescue the driver.Least-competent criminals Six suspects in a June 25 Denver mugging counted among their spoils the victims brand-new iPhone. After using Ryan Coupens credit cards at a nearby Walgreens, the thieves used the phone to post a Snapchat story about their shenanigans to Coupens account, where his friends and police could clearly see some of their faces. A repeat offender came to the end of his career when he and an accomplice tried to burglarize a home in East Macon, Ga., on June 19. As James Robert Young, 41, a 35-time resident in the Bibb County jail, and another man zeroed in on her television, the homeowner woke up and heard them. When she yelled, the men ran out, said Sheriff David Davis, and that was when the other suspect turned around and fired his weapon, striking Young in the head, killing him. The accomplice is still at large.Oh, THOSE monkeysA monkey mystery unfolded near Mesa, Ariz., in early July as drone owner Jesse Sorensan dispatched his device over a facility rumored to house abandoned monkeys. Hovered above it and took some pictures ... and sure enough theres monkeys in almost all the cages, said Sorensan. What are these monkeys doing ... in the middle of the desert? Local TV reporters looked into the mystery and found the facility is used for research and breeding for the University of Washington and the Centers for Disease Control, who were quick to point out that the monkeys have access to air conditioning and veterinary care.

Events include the Greatest Generation & Beyond breakfast and Taps Across America to honor the generation that preserved the United States founding principles of 1776 and those sentinels of liberty who followed in their footsteps. The 2017 theme brings light to Our Unsung Heroes: Chaplins & Corpsmen. The Greatest Generation & Beyond breakfast takes place from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 12, at the Hilton Naples. Before the program begins, guests will be able to enjoy the Oakes Victory Garden display and the From Sea to Shinning Sea mural, have photos taken in the Patriot Photo Booth and interact with various World War II character re-enactors to spark memories of a sentimental journey. Veterans are asked to bring photos of themselves in their service days to scanned at the Vote in Honor of a Veteran booth sponsored by the Collier County Supervisor of Elections. The elections office collects and maintains photos and biographical information from retired and active veterans and their families for use in its efforts to educate local youth about the sacrifices veterans have made and continue to make so that Americans can live in freedom and exercise their right to vote. The breakfast is free for veterans and their spouses. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. A wait list has been started for non-veterans who would like to attend; cost is $35. Taps Across AmericaIn 2010, Congress proclaimed the second Sunday in August as the official day to remember the ending of WWII. In Naples, the Taps Across America program starts at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13, at Lowdermilk Park. Guests will enjoy music from the Verona Walk Choir and the Naples Concert Band Bugler Corps. Young Marines will post the colors with Golden Gate High School JROTC cadets serving as guides to the beach, where members of the Northside Naples Kiwanis Club will unfurl their garrison flag as veterans walk to the water to hand off the wreath to the Venture Crew Troop 25. The wreath will be released into the gulf as Taps is sounded from the beach. Following the ceremony, guests will enjoy the traditional M&Ms ice cream social and Spirit of 5 cookies from Sage Events Catering. Taps Across America is free and open to the public with no reservations required. Some seating will be available, but guests are encouraged to bring chairs and/or blankets. Main sponsors of the Spirit of 5 weekend tribute are Arthrex and Avow. Table sponsorships are available, as are Thank You for Our Freedom program ads ($350 for a full page, $200 for a half page).

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 27-AUGUST 2, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY LoversPet EDITION E ISSUE ISS U That is why we photograph them and we share those images around the world via Facebook and Instagram. This years Florida Weekly Pet Lovers edition drew a record 652 photo entries from across Southwest Florida. The entries included 516 dogs, 104 cats, seven birds, five horses, 2 chameleons (or iguanas, maybe), five pigs, three donkeys, three rabbits and one photo each of a ferret, frog, goats, guinea pig, peacock, snake and turtle. Every single photo was beautiful, or funny, or interesting, or surprising all spoke to the loving connection between pet and human. We wish we could have awarded every single entry first place. It was very difficult to choose. In fact, first place ended in a tie: A photo of Jag, a poodle/Maltese mix, wearing a little blue coat playing with a stick, tied with Kiki, a Rottweiler who was captured throwing her paws over her face. Daisy Reeves, who owns Jag, said the pup is about 14 months old. She took Jag out on to the driveway on a sunny day, and tossed some sticks her way. She had this one and I just kept shooting the camera, said Ms. Reeves, of Naples. Kikis owner, Susanne Beauvoir of Bonita Springs, said she took the picture about a year ago during an impromptu photo session. In second place is a photo of a cat named Yoda, taken by Debra Brooks of Punta Gorda. And in third place is a photo of Ed, Ring and Swirls, tuxedo kitties seemingly fascinated by something outside the window. Their owners (or servants, one might say) are Andrew Ratz and Lauren Ratz of Fort Myers. The first place winners receive $250 gift cards to a local pet store; second and third places receive $100 cards. We hope you enjoy the photos here of a number of the entries. Every entry may be viewed on our Facebook pages: Fort Myers Florida Weekly, Bonita Springs Florida Weekly, Charlotte County Florida Weekly and Naples Florida Weekly. The photo album is named 017 Pet Lovers Photo Contest Entries. We hope many of you will find our pet and tag the photo and post a comment. And that is why we share them with you, dear humans. Enjoy!

Other recipients included the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, which was awarded eight first-place spots, and the Sun Sentinel, Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald.SPJ Florida partnered with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists South Florida chapter to include Spanish-language awards for the fourth year in a row. In those awards, el Nuevo Herald and WLTV-Univision 23 led the pack with four awards each. Among the highest honors awarded was The James Batten Award for Public Service, given to the staff at WUFT.org for their work on Project: Blue Ether an interactive story detailing water issues in the state of Florida. The Gene Miller Award for Investigative Reporting was given to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Josh Salman who won Journalist of the Year in 2016 Emily Le Coz and Elizabeth Johnson all won for Bias on the Bench an in-depth investigation into Floridas broken judicial system. Bias on the Bench also won the First Amendment Foundation Freedom of Information Award and took home first place in Newspaper Series. Pat Beall from The Palm Beach Post won the Journalist of the Year award. The judges said: Over the course of 2016, this journalist examined a public health epidemic through powerful reporting, driven by both personal anecdote and an impressive amount of data. More than just shedding light on the opioid crisis in Florida, Beall was instrumental in creating and analyzing comprehensive databases, with information never before compiled and easily accessible to the public, concerning both the toll and economic impact of the abuse. She put a human face on opioidrelated deaths literally, 216 of them accounting for myriad difficult phone calls, no doubt, handled with compassion and empathy. She also shed a light on companies looking to gain from the nations opioid abuse epidemic and the public officials possibly susceptible to complicity in this profit-mongering. Lisa Peakes of WUSF won for Anchor of the Year. AWARDSFrom page 1CORNWELL RADDATZ WILLIAMS STETSON Social media can help scammers when you post about a lost petPosting on social media is a great way to alert a wide range of people about a lost pet. Unfortunately, that same publicity can put you at risk for scams. Con artists comb social posts to find targets who have lost their beloved pets. Heres how it works: You recently lost your pet, so you turn to social media to alert friends and neighbors. Creating a public post or even a group to help spread the word, you share your phone number and other details in order that people can easily reach you. A few days later, you get a text message from someone claiming to have found your lost dog or cat. You ask him to describe your pet and/or send a photo, but the conversation quickly takes a strange turn. The scammer will give excuses, such as being out of town or not having a working smartphone, for why he cant snap a photo to send you. Instead, the person will pressure you for money (or a gift card) in exchange for the return of your pet. Although you might be tempted to do anything to see your dog or cat returned safely, dont pay up. The scammer doesnt have your pet. He will just take the money and disappear. Follow these tips to prevent falling victim to a pet loss scam: Limit the information in your social posts. If you post on Facebook or other social media, omit information about unique physical attributes. This can help you verify if someone really found your pet. Watch for spoofed numbers. If you get a call from someone claiming to have your pet, ask for a phone number where you can call him back. Scammers often spoof phone numbers so they appear to be calling from somewhere else. Ask for a photo. If a caller claims to have your pet in his possession, ask him to send a current picture. If the finder gets defensive or makes a lot of excuses, consider it a red flag. Never wire money or use a prepaid debit card to pay anyone you dont know. This is the same as sending cash. Microchip and/or ID tag your pet. Consider having your veterinarian microchip your pet, or make sure he always wears a collar and ID tag. To learn more about scams, go to www.bbb.org/scamtips.

Previously, (July 6th issue) I described how the North Collier Fire District Commissioners broke their promise to the voters in North Naples and Big Corkscrew by changing the agreed to cost allocation method. The result, North Naples taxpayers are subsidizing Big Corkscrews purchase of fire engines. Another broken promise was agreeing to reduce the millage rate (tax rate) citizens pay for fire services, and then deciding not to follow through. In 2015, the fire commissioners reduced the tax rate in both fire districts by 0.05 mills, as promised. At this years Budget Workshop, (Aug. 10, 2017) your Fire Commissioners are planning to again break their promise by restoring the 0.05 millage rate reduction. They plan on increasing the new tax rate in North Naples to 1.0 mills and increasing the tax rate in Big Corkscrew to as much as 3.62 mills. Contact Fire District Chairman Norman Feder email@example.com and tell him, and the other commissioners, to keep his promise and not to raise our taxes.

PO Box 2218, Fort Myers, FL 33902 LeeHealth.org Your heart health is as important to us as it is to you. Through Shipley Cardiothoracic Center we developed and implemented standardized care for all cardiac patients prior to surgery. Care for every patient includes consultations with specialists, monitoring lab and test results, and much more. Our transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) program allows even the most frail patients to receive treatment for a damaged heart valve. Lee Health was chosen for a nationwide study to expand TAVR services to a broader range of patients. Micra is the smallest pacemaker available and part of our heart care. This pacemaker is self-contained within the heart, helping to eliminate many potential complications. All of our adult hospitals have a dedicated chest pain center designed to quickly triage, diagnose and treat patients who present to the emergency rooms with low to moderate risk of cardiac disease. Our chest pain centers are able to rapidly diagnose and give appropriate treatment to these patents in an average of 12-16 hours. Our heart failure coordinators ensure optimal care for hospitalized patients through coordination of post-acute care and services patients need once they leave the hospital.Patient care is at the heart of what we do every day.

NHGRI is part of the National Institutes of Health. Cancer patients were a little more likely to survive for five years or more after chemotherapy if they interacted during chemotherapy with other patients who also survived for five years or more. Patients were a little more likely to die in less than five years after chemotherapy when they interacted during chemotherapy with those who died in less than five years. The findings were published online July 12 in the journal Network Science. People model behavior based on whats around them, Jeff Lienert, lead author in NHGRIs Social and Behavioral Research Branch and a National Institutes of Health Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program fellow. For example, you will often eat more when youre dining with friends, even if you cant see what theyre eating. When youre bicycling, you will often perform better when youre cycling with others, regardless of their performance. Mr. Lienert set out to see if the impact of social interaction extended to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Joining this research effort were his adviser, Felix Reed-Tsochas, Ph.D., at Oxfords CABDyN Complexity Centre at the Sad Business School; Laura Koehly, Ph.D., chief of NHGRIs Social and Behavioral Research Branch; and Christopher Marcum, Ph.D., a staff scientist also in the Social and Behavioral Research Branch at NHGRI. They based their findings on electronic medical records data from 2000 to 2009 from two major hospitals in the United Kingdoms National Health Service. The researchers examined the total time a patient spent with the same patients undergoing chemotherapy and their five-year survival rate. The fiveyear survival rate is the percentage of people who live at least five years after chemotherapy treatment is completed. For example, a five-year survival rate of 70 percent means that an estimated 70 out of 100 people are still alive five years after chemotherapy. They also reviewed a room schematic to confirm the assumption that patients were potentially positioned to interact. We had information on when patients checked in and out of the chemotherapy ward, a small intimate space where people could see and interact for a long period of time, Mr. Lienert said. We used time spent getting chemotherapy in a room with others as a proxy for social connection. When patients were around those during chemotherapy who died in less than five years following chemotherapy, they had a 72 percent chance of dying within five years following their chemotherapy. The best outcome w as when patients interacted with someone who survived for five years or longer: They had a 68 percent chance of dying within five years. The researchers model also predicted that if patients were isolated from other patients, they would have a 69.5 percent chance of dying within five years. A 2 percent difference in survival between being isolated during treatment and being with other patients might not sound like a lot, but its pretty substantial, Mr. Lienert said. If you saw 5,000 patients in nine years, that 2 percent improvement would affect 100 people. Ms. Koehly said Mr. Lienerts research is the first to investigate, on a large scale, how social context in a treatment setting can play a significant role in disease outcomes. As cancer care moves more toward targeted therapies based on genomic tumor assessments, NHGRI is interested in understanding how these social environmental factors might impact treatment efficacy, she added. The researchers didnt study why the difference occurred, but hypothesize that it may be related to stress response. When youre stressed, stress hormones such as adrenaline are released, resulting in a fight or flight response, Mr. Lienert said. If you are then unable to fight or fly, such as in chemotherapy, these hormones can build up. While the researchers also didnt investigate the impact of visitors on cancer patients undergoing therapy, the effect would likely be similar, he said. Positive social support during the exact moments of greatest stress is crucial, he said. If you have a friend with cancer, keeping him or her company during chemotherapy probably will help reduce their stress. The impact is likely to be as effective, and possibly more effective, than cancer patients interacting with other cancer patients. Steady progress on the march toward long, healthy livesOver the past 62 years we have come a long way in caring for patients thanks to the hard work, competence and compassion of our NCH colleagues. We have had some amazing success in lowering mortality from cardiac disease, stroke and sepsis (blood infection); helping folks ambulate well with artificial joints (for years we have been the busiest total joint replacement hospital in Florida for Medicare patients); birthing 3,644 babies; caring for the vast majority of childrens needs close to home and around the clock; 111,436 emergency room visits; 38,999 admissions; and 334,824 outpatient visits with the NCH Physician Group just to share a few annual highlights. Thus, our life expectancy is the longest in the nation and growing in contradistinction to the rest of Americans. We also have been named the healthiest and happiest place in the nation for a second consecutive year due in no small measure to everyone in our community working together, from government agencies and schools to private businesses and civic organizations. Although receiving positive news and sharing the good story above is much easier than the opposite, sometimes we need to be aware of concerns from around the nation that are challenging our environment. Our desire is to understand and avoid pitfalls. Two recent headlines in respected health-care journals Forty-eight healthcare layoffs so far in 2017 from Beckers Hospital Review and Hospitals turn to job cuts amid budgetary woes from Fierce Healthcare are representative of adverse trends. There are other more inflammatory headlines, but the point is that today NCH is better off than others around the nation and more importantly, we want to stay that way. With the budgetary stress in Washington and Tallahassee, we have been planning for decreased reimbursement HEALTHY LIVING SEE WEISS, A27 allenWEISSallen.email@example.com

NCH as an institution has prepared and continues to be prudent with limited and decreasing resources. Although being on a budget is not popular, the alternative namely layoffs and lack of supplies, as well as the inability to sustain growth or meet the changing health-care needs of those we serve is much less palatable. While economic pressures continue, we want everyone to have his/her job. Continuing to manage through the extremes of our seasonal variation (we almost double our inpatient census from nadir to peak) is a challenge we accept, aided by the flexibility, resourcefulness and sacrifice by all. Additionally, the extreme variation during the in-between times, when 12-hour fine-tuning necessitates colleagues floating from unit to unit, working overtime or not working a shift, is a recognized stress. We strive to have the right number of caregivers to maximize quality of care and minimize inconvenience of colleagues, while being financially prudent with limited resources. We are carefully looking to our future as we continue to serve Southwest Florida. NCH has been here for more than 60 years, and we want to be here for at least another 60. We want to reward everyone at NCH with excellent working conditions, market competitive compensation, appropriately substantial benefits and a rich, self-fulfilling experience as we spend our working lives altruistically helping everyone ourselves included live a longer, happier and healthier life.

From Dalmatians running alongside coach horses to fox terriers riding in saddlebags during the hunt to cow dogs and quarter horses teaming up to drive livestock, dogs and horses have a long history of friendly and fruitful interactions in partnership with people. If you want your dog to be your riding buddy, heres how to get started. Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh corgis, Jack Russell terriers and Australian shepherds are commonly seen at stables, but most dogs can learn to safely run alongside or interact with horses, just as most horses can become used to dogs. Both animals should have a calm, quiet and sensible character. With that as a foundation, you can teach each to behave politely and safely in the presence of the other. Before you bring him around a horse, your dog should respond reliably to the verbal cues sit, down (including at a distance), stay and come, whether hes on or off his leash. You shouldnt have to repeat yourself multiple times before he obeys. Schedule a refresher training session if he needs to brush up on his skills. When youre comfortable with his behavior, take your dog to the barn with you while you feed the horses or muck out stalls. Practice obedience skills there so your dog becomes comfortable performing them while the horse is nearby. At the same time, your horse can learn to watch out for the dog. A kick from a horse can cause a fractured skull, broken leg or ribs, or even kill a dog. Two herding cues that can be helpful are come by (clockwise) and way to me (counterclockwise), which tell the dog to move out and in which direction. If necessary, work with a trainer who has experience in herding to teach these cues. Teach your dog to sit while you mount and not to cross in front of the horse while shes moving. Its best to ride in an area where its safe for the dog to be off-leash. Trying to use a long line while riding can end with horse or dog becoming dangerously tangled. While mounted, practice cues such as down, sit or wait until your dog responds instantly. It could save his life if you encounter wildlife, livestock, loose dogs or a farmer with a gun. Always remain alert for potential dangers. To keep track of your dog if he runs ahead or is hidden by high grass, attach a small bell to his collar so you can hear where he is. Its good practice to call him back to you regularly so you can keep tabs on him. Is there a perfect horse dog? Some dogs are better than others when it comes to being around horses. Herding breeds such as Australian cattle dogs, border collies, English shepherds and German shepherds have a heritage of working around large animals, but its important to teach them not to nip at horses heels unless they are aiding you in loading the horse into a trailer. Retriever and pointer breeds such as Labradors, German shorthairs, Weimaraners and Brittanys can also make excellent riding companions. Beagles, foxhounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, bassets and other hound breeds tend to be mellow around horses. Among the working group breeds, Doberman pinschers have a reputation for getting along with horses. Smooth and wire fox terriers and Airedales are among the terrier breeds often seen with horses. Even smaller dogs such as cavalier King Charles spaniels, dachshunds, rat terriers and miniature poodles can make good riding companions. Bonus: If they get tired, you can just plop them in a saddlebag. Before bringing them together, take into account the personalities of your dog and horse. Pets of the Week>> Ethel is a 4-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback mix who loves to meet new people and gets along well with her kennelmates.

THE DIVA DIARIESShes dreaming of Nova Scotia and bacon-laced Bloody MarysMaybe its the heat, but I need a getaway and Im not alone. I was dishing with some girlfriends and we all agreed that now is the time to get out of Southwest Florida. As Ive always referred to the end of July, going into August here in our little corner of the swamp its that gross period when walking outside is like walking into the mouth of a large, wet dog. Its steamy. So steamy that your makeup melts off your face in the brief few moments it takes you to get from your front door into your oven-like automobile. There are times to be here in Southwest Florida I call those times January and February but, unless I win the lottery, I dont have the luxury of summering anywhere except the airconditioned environment of my own living room. Still, a girl can dream and with the inventive imaginations of some gal pals, we came up with the perfect resort concept. Since weve always wanted to go to a Canyon Ranch Luxury Spa, but cant quite afford the recommended 21-day stay that can cost up to $35,000 (with a slogan like, Bliss and balance await you, you know its not the Motel 6), weve come up with our own exclusive resort and spa: The Cool Ranch (were hoping that we can get Doritos to sign on as a partner). Ideally, The Cool Ranch will be situated in Nova Scotia. Wed love for our little oasis to be in the states, but Canada is the only place on the continent that meets our weather requirements low 70s during the day, low 50s at night. Wed prefer even cooler, but we accept that its the middle of summer pretty much everywhere right now and the thing is, were all experiencing our own personal summers in the form of debilitating hot flashes and night sweats due to either being on the brink of menopause or in full-blown menopause. Add hot flashes to feels-like temps in the low hundreds and humidity levels of epic proportions and youll understand why so many women around these parts between the ages of 40 and 60 are in such bad moods lately. Therefore, weve customized The Cool Ranch to meet our needs. First of all, instead of pillows, The Cool Ranch will feature Chillows pillows filled with gel that are stored in the freezer and stay nice and chilly all night long. Also, the central air will stay at a constant 62 degrees and ceiling fans set to high will be in every room. The lobby will have an estrogen bar, as well as a Build-Your-Own-Bloody-Mary-Bar complete with plenty of bacon for garnishment. Since there will be a never-ending taco buffet as well as a chocolate fondue fountain, there will be no mirrors or scales at The Cool Ranch. Instead of a gym, The Cool Ranch will offer Champagne Yoga, which means well sit on yoga mats and drink champagne. One of the most important aspects to The Cool Ranch is attire. There will be absolutely nothing that constricts or clings. Caftans are the official uniform of The Cool Ranch. Nice, roomy, cool caftans with bright prints so that if we spill our margarita or guacamole on them, no one will notice or care. For now, The Cool Ranch exists only in the imaginations and hearts of me and my menopausal friends, but we have faith. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Deli franchise opportunity had recipe for success BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentShared business values and beckoning opportunity converged harmoniously like a savory dishs ingredients in bringing Diana and Scott Willis to Southwest Florida and Jasons Deli. The couple own six Jasons Delis in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Manatee and Sarasota counties, with single locations in Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and off Immokalee Road near Naples, and two Fort Myers area stores. As the 1990s drew to a close, they were the owners of a Texas McDonalds franchise who felt the mega-chain just wasnt the right fit. So they began researching other restaurant businesses and settled on Jasons Deli, which was founded in Beaumont, Texas, where Mrs. Willis grew up and met and married her husband of 31 years. We wanted to go with something where we felt emotionally connected to the customer and that had values and food quality that really resonated with us, Mrs. Willis says. When we sold our McDonalds, we had already reached out to the Jasons Deli family and looked at opportunities with them. The couple moved to Fort Myers in 2000 and opened their first Jasons, off Reflections Parkway and Cypress Lake Drive in South Fort Myers, in 2002. The deli chain is known for an appetizing and varied array of sandwiches, soups, salads, pasta dishes, desserts and more, all served quickly and with healthy eating in mind. In 2005, the company stopped using artificial transfats, MSG, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, dyes and flavors, putting an emphasis on fresh, organically grown ingredients.

According to the bio from his literary agency, Richard Marcinko retired from the Navy as a full commander after more than 30 years of service. He currently lives in the Alexandria, Va., area, where he is CEO of SOS Temps Inc., his private security firm whose clients are governments and corporations; Richard Marcinko Inc., a motivational training and team-building company; and Red Cell International Inc., which conducts vulnerability assessments of high-value properties and high-risk targets. Yeah, this is one badass dude. And in the mid s, he brought his badassedness to the business world, becoming a bestselling author and sought-after motivational speaker. Both his autobiography (titled simply Rogue Warrior) and his first foray into the business market, Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior: A Commandos Guide to Success, were New York Times bestsellers. It is the latter well revisit, because, after more than two decades, its littered with still-sound advice and still packs a punch.Macho manMr. Marcinkos style is certainly not for everyone. Seriously, folks, the guys a decorated Vietnam veteran. His specialty was SpecWar (the military lingo for special warfare). He emerged from an era of soldiering known as much for its machismo as its bravado. Expect him to be off-color and politically incorrect, and theres no doubt his approach will appeal primarily to manly men (or those who want to be). If you can see past those attributes, youll be bludgeoned by sound advice culled from situations in which competent leadership could mean the difference, literally, between life and death. Granted, some of his advice is not new. But, as with comedy, its not the joke, its the delivery. And Mr. Marcinko drives home his advice with the force of mortar fire. Buried in the books introduction is what he calls The Rogue Warriors Leadership Code. I will test my theories on myself first. I will be my own guinea pig. I will be totally committed to what I believe, and I will risk all that I have for these beliefs. I will back my subordinates all the way when they take reasonable risks to help me achieve my goals. I will not punish my people for making mistakes. Ill only punish them for not learning from their mistakes. I will not be afraid to take action, because I know that almost any action is better than inaction. And I know that sometimes not acting is the boldest action of all. I will always make it crystal clear where I stand and what I believe. I will always be easy to find: I will be at the center of the battle. Theres nothing on the list that seems particularly unusual or unreasonable. But thats not the list upon which the book is based. At the foundation of Leadership Secrets are what Mr. Marcinko terms The Rogue Warriors Ten Commandments of SpecWar, which are posted plainly at the front of the book. One need only read the First Commandment I am the War Lord and the wrathful God of Combat and I will always lead you from the front, not the rear to know youre not in Kansas anymore. Youre in a battle zone. Here are just a few of his other edicts. The Third Commandment: Thou shalt do nothing I will not do first, and thus will you be created Warriors in my deadly image. The Ninth Commandment: Verily, thou art not paid for thy methods, but for thy results, by which meaneth thou shalt kill thine enemy by any means available before he killeth you. The Tenth Commandment: Thou shalt, in thy Warriors Mind and Soul, always remember My ultimate and final Commandment: There Are No Rules Thou Shalt Win at All Cost. Each of the books 10 chapters expounds on each of Mr. Marcinkos commandments in detail. And each chapter concludes with two sections, The Rogue Warrior Mentality: Lessons from War and The Rogue Warrior Mentality: Lessons from Business. While the latter provides the most practical application of each commandment, the former are the most entertaining, drawn from Mr. Marcinko being up to my hairy eyebrows in danger while plying his deadly trade in Vietnam and other militarily unsavory locations around the world. You can imagine Mr. Marcinko alternately sitting with you having a beer while he colorfully recounts his exploits and screaming in your face as if you were participating in the SEALs Hell Week phase of their training. But if you connect with him, the effect is almost hypnotic.Never retreatI have read Leadership Secrets numerous times, but not for a long time. My ex-wife knew every time I picked it up and hated it. Mr. Marcinko demands the readers often difficult, even painful, transformation of mental outlook and personal habits in order to mold oneself into leadership potential. His Sixth Commandment, Thou hast not to like it thou hast just to do it, became my mantra as I plowed through my own lack of motivation. Hell, as I reread the book to write this article, I felt a stirring in my blood, a growing, driving enthusiasm to get things done. The thing is (and this may be the Rogue Warrior philosophys greatest challenge) once you set a certain standard for yourself, you expect it of others. Mr. Marcinkos no-holds-barred, noexcuses, give-no-quarter approach might not appeal to some. After all, it rests the catalyst for change squarely on the readers shoulders. Mr. Marcinko was not only a SEAL, but a SEAL COMMANDO, for pitys sake. If you read about what those men have to achieve, mentally and physically, in order to be accepted into a fraternity that prides itself on washing out the lions share of its applicants, youll appreciate that theres no wriggling out of Mr. Marcinkos iron-handed insistence on personal accountability for selfimprovement. Leadership Secrets is, ultimately, a rewarding journey that refuses to fizzle out at the end. Its finale is more like the concluding volley of July 4 fireworks. If your ultimate goal is to survive and succeed in your career and in your personal life, youve got to be tougher, more motivated, and more focused than anybody who might stand between you and your goal. You must attack your self-imposed internal limitations because thats the first step to being a leader. To survive and succeed, you must accept one plain and painful truth: Business can be war. Life can be war. If you want to win that war: Attack. Attack! ATTACK! To which I reply, Hooyah!

When discussing areas of the country available for franchises, Jasons founder Joe Tortorice Jr. mentioned a locale the Willises were not familiar with: the Fort Myers-Naples area. We wanted a place where we could raise our children, who at the time were young, she says. We came down for a visit and brought our kids and fell in love with the community and decided this would be a good place to branch out from. Seeing the business impact on employees provides daily motivation for Mrs. Willis. I say that because we have so many people who started with us when they were 17 or 18 years old, and they have developed a career and bought homes and cars and created lives for themselves, she says.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Debit Cards vs. Credit CardsThose plastic cards that we carry in our wallets may all look alike, but they can be quite different. Its good to understand the difference between a credit card and a debit card in order to make smarter financial decisions.A credit card lets you purchase things by drawing on a line of credit. Youre expected to pay off what you owe when you get your monthly statement, and if you dont do so, youll be charged interest for the loan you have essentially taken out. In contrast, with a debit card, youre drawing funds directly from your bank account, with no lending involved. Thus, using a debit card is a lot like paying with cash or writing a check. A credit card lets you spend more than you can afford and rack up debt, while a debit card can keep your spending within your means. Credit cards can be sneaky, too. If yours features a penalty APR, that means that one late payment might result in your interest rate being hiked to 25 percent or 30 percent. Choose cards with no penalty APRs. While debit cards dock your bank account immediately, credit cards feature a grace period of a few weeks, typically, before interest charges start accruing. Debit cards typically feature fewer fees than credit cards, but if you charge more than you have in your account, youll pay for that transgression. Despite their significant dangers, credit cards offer some great benefits, too, especially if youre disciplined. For example, there are cash-back and rewards cards with which you can earn up to 5 percent or more on your spending, which can amount to several hundred dollars per year. Many cards offer other perks, too, such as warranty protections on purchases, and credit cards generally have more anti-fraud protections. Credit cards can also help you build a strong credit history and solid credit score, which can lead to better rates when you want to buy a home or car. Learn more at consumer.ftc.gov. Bet on the Wrong HorseIn the mid 1980s, I had about $10,000 to invest, and I was dithering between two companies. One was Convergent Technologies. I worked in technology in Silicon Valley, and thought I understood the company. It was a turnaround play, as the companys once-rapid growth had stalled due to parts shortages and management issues, among other things, and it was posting losses. A former HewlettPackard executive was brought in, which was promising. I bet on Convergent. The other company was a little startup called Amgen. Had I bought into Amgen at the time instead, its highly unlikely that Id still be holding the shares. But if I had, that $10,000 investment would have been worth more than $12 million today. I run the numbers again every few years to stay grounded. (And yes, out of masochism!) Now when I look at Amgens share price, I get lost in some what if kinds of thoughts. There are several huge, important, basic lessons in this story. P.K., San Jose, CaliforniaThe Fool Responds: There sure are. But dont be too hard on yourself. One lesson is that while hindsight may be 20/20, you couldnt have known Amgens future back then. Investing in troubled companies and hoping theyll get their act together can be risky. You can reduce risk and still do well by sticking to healthy, growing companies that arent overvalued. Profits From PartsIf youd like to invest in the auto industry but are worried about disruptions from electric vehicles threatening your investments, consider Copart (Nasdaq: CPRT). Its in the business of selling junked, wrecked and otherwise salvaged cars and recently sported a market value near $7 billion.Copart is the kind of company that enters the picture at the end of an automobiles life. Running auctions primarily of vehicles salvaged from auto accidents and facilitating their resale to buyers planning to dismantle said vehicles, Copart doesnt really care what kind of fuel those cars and trucks (used to) run on. Its concerned with squeezing the last bit of value out of a dead automobile before it goes to the great junkyard in the sky. Over the past five years, the company has increased its earnings per share by almost 150 percent, through a combination of expansion, cost efficiency and share buybacks. Over that period, net income has increased 121 percent, while management has repurchased almost 10 percent of shares outstanding. Theres likely more growth in Coparts future. It has been expanding its relationships with some of the United States largest auto insurers, and the auto-salvage business is still ripe for further consolidation, both domestically and in the other 10 countries where the company operates. Coparts economies of scale are a big competitive advantage, too. (The Motley Fool has recommended Copart.) Tracing my roots back to 1901, I revolutionized tagless T-shirts and underwear, invented the sports bra and was the first to advertise a bra on national television. Today, based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, I rake in more than $6 billion annually, and my products are in close to 90 percent of U.S. households. I produce innerwear and outerwear under my own name as well as the Champion, Maidenform, Bali, Playtex, Just My Size, Leggs, Wonderbra and Gear for Sports brands. Unlike many peers, I make more than 90 percent of my apparel in my own manufacturing plants. Who am I? (Answer: HanesBrands) Mutual Funds vs. UITsQWhats the difference between mutual funds and unit investment trusts? A.E., Pueblo, ColoradoAMutual fund managers buy and sell stocks, bonds and/or other assets according to a stated investment strategy. Shares are issued and redeemed on demand at a specific price (the net asset value) thats calculated at the end of each trading day based on the total market value of the funds holdings. The number of shares is not fixed. If many people want to buy in, the fund company will issue more shares and will have more money to invest. Unit investment trusts (UITs), on the other hand, typically debut via a one-time public offering and feature a relatively fixed portfolio of investments. While mutual fund holdings can change considerably over time, UIT holdings are meant to be held until the trust is liquidated at a specified date. Investors who want to trade UIT shares can generally do so in the secondary market. Unlike a mutual fund, UIT share prices in the secondary market may be priced above or below the net asset value of the trusts actual holdings. UITs generally charge sales fees (or loads), while many mutual funds are no-load. ***QWhat happens to a stocks P/E ratio when the stock splits? K.B., Greenville, North CarolinaASplits dont change price-toearnings (P/E) ratios. A companys P/E ratio is simply its recent stock price divided by the annual earnings per share (EPS). A stock trading at $40 per share with EPS of $4 will have a P/E of 10 (40 divided by 4). If the stock splits 2-for-1, the shares will be priced at $20 and the EPS will also be halved, resulting in an unchanged P/E, as 20 divided by 2 is 10. Want more information about stocks?

Civic involvement has always been a priority for the Willis Jasons Deli locations, each of which includes charitable donations in its annual budget. Giving back can be a way for a business to establish itself in a community and show appreciation for patrons support, Mrs. Willis believes. But more importantly, she adds, its a way to show that youre here for the long run, not just to just provide goods and services but also to lend a hand to the community. Interview with Diana WillisBusiness mentor: I have many mentors in my life, however, the best one is my husband, Scott. Weve been married for more than 30 years and have been business partners for 22. I have learned the most about business from him. First job: I was a babysitter from the time I was 13 until I reached the age of 16. I used to watch families of children for entire weekends, including cooking/ cleaning for them. It was a lot of responsibility for a young girl, but I loved it. I was born to serve others. Business words of wisdom: Treat all people with dignity and respect. And Dont take yourself too seriously. Favorite business books: I love The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and Good to Great by Jim Collins. I am currently re-reading Upside: How to Zig when Life Zags by Allison Blankenship (a hospitality sister) and Bonnie Michaels. Two things you look for when hiring: A great attitude, first and foremost, sincerity and authenticity. Hire for attitude, train for skill. Any job openings now: Yes. We are always looking for the best at each location. Each deli has different availability. Last time you had to fire someone and the reason: A couple of years ago we had to fire a long-term manager who had created an environment where disrespecting others was tolerated. Our team does not tolerate that. Being kind of a trendsetter, from a small company standpoint, was really intriguing to us. We thought, Here they are, a deli company that is really going after the healthy lifestyle market. Nobody else was really talking about that then.

House Hunting3225 Tavolara Lane, Fiddlers Creek COURTESY PHOTOSSEE NABOR, B3 Record-breaking rainfall in June did not dampen buyer interest in the Naples housing market as evidenced in the newest market reports released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The second quarter 2017 report showed strong and steady sales activity leading into summer, with a 7 percent increase in overall closed sales to 2,880 closed sales in 2Q 2017 from 2,704 closed sales in 2Q 2016 and a 9 percent increase in overall closed sales for the month of June to 907 closed sales from 832 closed sales in June 2016. The 2Q report shows numerous areas of remarkable activity. For example, condominiums in the $2 million and above category saw an 86 percent increase in closed sales and a 38 percent decrease in median closed price in 2Q 2017 from 2Q 2016. Similarly, pending sales (homes under contract) in the North Naples market increased 20 percent during 2Q 2017 from 2Q 2016. The North Naples market was the only geographic area that reported a decrease in median closed price (-1 percent). The North Naples area is making a big turnaround, especially in the condominium market, which had the highest pending and closed sales reported, Coco Amar, a managing broker at John June statistics point to strong summer ahead NAPLES AREA BOARD OF REALTORS_____________________________Buyers struggling to find homes under $300,000 in the single-family market are turning to condominiums or coach homes as an alternative.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 27-AUGUST 2, 2017 REAL ESTATE B3 1461 Anhinga Pointe LISTED AT $3,895,000 489 1st Ave South LISTED AT $4,175,000 DANTE.DISABATO@RAVEIS.COM | CELL 239.537.5351 | @DANTEDISABATO 720 5TH AVE | NAPLES | FL 34102 | OFFICE 239.231.3380 DANTE DISABATOBROKER ASSOCIATE SEE NABOR, B7 R. Wood Properties, said. Pending sales of condominiums in North Naples increased 30 percent to 428 condominiums in 2Q 2017 from 329 condominiums in 2Q 2016. Closed sales of condominiums in the same area increased 29 percent to 463 condominiums in 2Q 2017 from 358 condominiums in 2Q 2016. Condominium sales moving into summer look very good for North Naples, as well, with the June report showing a 30 percent increase in pending sales. Overall inventory during the 2Q of 2017 rose a respectable 4 percent to 5,189 homes in 2Q 2017 from 4,983 homes in 2Q 2016. According to Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, inventory during the 2Q was getting eaten up by sales, an observation that is evident from the numbers for homes in the $2 million and above category, which only saw a 1 percent increase in inventory, yet a 43 percent increase in closed sales. Despite a 12 percent increase in inventory, the $300,000 and below category saw a 4 percent decline in overall closed sales. Inventory for condominiums in the $300,000 and below category saw the highest increase (17 percent) in the 2Q of 2017, while the number of closed sales for condominiums in this category did not change quarter over quarter. Buyers struggling to find homes under $300,000 in the single-family market are turning to condominiums or coach homes as an alternative, says Steve Barker, advising broker for Equity Realty. Even so, he adds, As it stands today, there is only 2.4 months worth of inventory available in the under $300,000 single-family home market, and 4.2 months worth of inventory available in the under $300,000 condominium market. In response, many broker analysts remarked that slack sales in the low end of the market might be due to the imminent burden of additional costs beyond the sale price, such as high condominium association and/or club membership fees. Closed sales in the $2 million and above category are poised to remain strong through the summer. This category experienced a 30 percent increase in pending sales during the 2Q of 2017. One explanation offered by Ms. Amar is that, It appears sellers in the high end of the market are coming around to the idea that a realistic price will sell a property faster. The 38 percent reduction in median closed price for this category during the second quarter shows we are not only seeing more negotiations, but also that sellers are more willing to accept real market offers. Broker analysts reviewing NABORs June 2017 market report acknowledged that the first two weeks of June started out a little slow, but the month ended strong with 907 closed sales, up 9 percent from 832 in June 2016.

At the end of June this year, the Naples market contained 7.86 months of inventory, which is considered to be normal, indicating that the June market is neither a sellers nor a buyers market. Inventory has not been this robust for the month of June since 2011. Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty Inc., remarked that the days on market increase of 18 percent could be due to overpriced listings. Wes Kunkle, president and managing broker at Kunkle International Realty, agreed. With median home prices flattening out in June, there would have been more sales if the homes were priced right, Mr. Kunkle said.

The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds 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. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-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 views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. The Manchester, England native has worked in the cities of London and Atlanta, as well as on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. More than 20 years ago he moved to Naples and has been associated with some of the finest Beach and Golf Clubs in the area. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center.

The quick-change artistry rests on the shoulders of TNP KidzAct costume designer Mary Anne Mckerrow. With the help of a small army of volunteers, shell literally take the costumes off the backs of the current cast when the curtain comes down on the closing matinee Sunday, July 30. Ms. McKerrow will run the outfits through the wash and resize them for the teen actors who will wear them on the stage for their first dress rehearsal on Tuesday afternoon, just 48 very short hours later. It is tradition that TNPs young performers present their own version of the companys summer musical every year. Last year it was Catch Me If You Can. Previous shows include Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Gypsy and Les Miserables. The KidzAct reprisal of Sister Act: The Musical runs Friday through Sunday, Aug. 4-6. Ms. McKerrow has been both teaching and costuming KidzAct students since 2005. I could never do this alone, she says. It takes a small army of amazing volunteers who work tirelessly along with me to make this quick-change happen and for the costuming to look as flawless for the teen show as it did for the adult show. Ms. McKerrow and 10-15 volunteers, who include her husband John, squeeze weeks of work into two days. Ms. McKerrow has been measuring teen performers and planning the change-over for weeks, comparing the adult casts sizes and marking where Quick-change artistry stars in the turnaround of Sister ActBY PATRICE SHIELDSSpecial to Florida Weekly Cool things toBY LINDSEY NESMITH lnesmith@ oridaweekly.com OW THAT NOAA HAS A FEW named storms under its belt, weve officially entered the dog days of summer.

Little, Brown. 416 pages. Hardcover, $28. Several years ago, I fell in love with Randy Wayne Whites Hannah Smith series. The Hannah Smith character provided a fresh focus for Mr. Whites considerable skills, while the Doc Ford series continued to satisfy his devoted following. Now we have Michael Connelly, masterful creator of both the Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller (Lincoln Lawyer) series, launching a new venture centered on a distinctive and totally engaging female character. Detective Rene Ballard is a winner. I swooned over Hannah, and now Ive fallen for Rene as well. Mr. Connellys mastery of the police procedural, honed throughout the Bosch series, is put to good use here. Ballard is a credible mixture of impulse and orderliness, the latter trait usually allowing her to follow the regulations and protocols that underpin effective police work. She works the night shift, punishment for her run-in with a superior wishing to send her a signal. Filing a sexual harassment complaint against Lt. Olivas pushed her career into this dark place. Working The Late Show means Ballard is often the first to begin an investigation, but come daylight she must turn it over to another detective. This routine provides little satisfaction, and she needs a way out. She finds it, in part, by following up on these cases using her own time. She takes two cases to heart and cant let go of them. One involves a prostitute almost beaten to death; the other a young woman shot in a nightclub. Ballards partner, Jenkins, is a competent officer but a rather passive individual. He warns her against pushing too hard and taking too many chances. When a case leads to the death of Ballards former partner, a man she was close to and yet who hadnt stood up for her following her abusive treatment by Olivas, Ballard is curiously all in, though warned away by Jenkins on several occasions. On her various cases, Ballard drives herself to exhaustion. She takes every step with deliberateness and professionalism, and yet all her actions are informed by her essential nature: the interplay of step-by-step investigatory process and her seeming obligation to taking risks. Though she struggles to avoid being seen as a loser or a victim, victimhood is what her behavior often courts. Some of these traits are best captured by a scene of Ballard in her off-hours preparing for a bit of paddleboarding at the beach. Her preparation of the board, her careful motions out on the water, her orderly arrangements of her belongings reveal a disciplined individual with a rage for order. She values routine (check out the way she lines up her work suits in her locker). Other traits grow from her unhappy childhood and her relative isolation in adult life. Her dog Lola is her best friend, almost her child. With the dog, at least, Ballard can show a gentle side. Yet she is a ferocious fighter, athletic and inventive. The survival skills she relies on to combat a suspect who drugged her and tied her to a chair reveal everything needed to understand her. Ballard does not stand alone in her debut performance. An abundant cast of sharply individualized characters fleshes out the busy days and hours of big city police work. Ballards interaction with her colleagues is manifest through crisp, authentic dialogue. There is a chip on her shoulder. Readers can decide how the others in the department understand it. Nobody does Los Angeles better than Mr. Connelly. Its not just that he can draw word maps with precision and suggestiveness, he can also let us understand how place and character interact. Because of her background, immediate situation and personality, Ballards L.A. is not the same as Harry Boschs or Mickey Hallers. Readers get to perceive her environment as she does. This is a most admirable and welcome debut. About the author A part-time resident of Tampa, Mr. Connelly is the author of 29 previous novels, including the No. 1 New York Times bestsellers The Wrong Side of Goodbye (reviewed in these pages) and The Crossing (ditto). His books have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide. A former newspaper reporter who has won numerous awards for his journalism as well as for his novels, he is also the executive producer of Bosch, starring Titus Welliver. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 27-AUGUST 2, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthings to do. MUSEUMS & GALLERIES Collier County Museums has two exhibits this summer that will take you back in time to a Collier County that had no air conditioning. From Aug. 3-Oct. 8, Naples Depot Museum presents the staff-curated Sites & Scenes: Naples Historic Places, which features photos of late 19th century and early 20th century Neapolitan faces and places. Whats Old Is Not Forgotten, on display at the Marco Island Historical Museum through Aug. 26, features pictures of throwback locations, cultures and people of the area shot by local photographers. Admission is free to all Collier County museums. For more information, visit www.colliermuseums.com. You could make a good afternoon perusing more than 1,000 artifacts and photos on permanent display at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Through Aug. 6, however, you can also take in the traveling exhibit, Fabric of Survival: The Story of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz as Told by Her Needlework. Using colorful fabric collage and intricate embroidery, Mrs. Krinitz created 36 large-scale panel displays that depict her life in Poland before, during and after the Nazi occupation. Created over a 10-year period to provide context of her war experience for her two daughters, the unique work will provide ample educational opportunities for local visitors who appreciate the union of craftsmanship and storytelling. Admission to the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is $10 for adults, $5 ages 12-18 and free for children under 12. For more information, call 263-9500 or visit www. holocaustmuseumswfl.org. Pop into the always-cool Naples Art Association through Aug. 4 and take your admiring 76 fine art photographs that make up the 2017 Camera USA juried exhibit. Admission is free, but donations are always welcome. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday. For more information, call 262-6517 or visit www.naplesart.org. How many costume displays come to Naples? The answer is very, very few. But for amateur historians who revel in lace, parasols and petticoats, Naples Historical Society shows off turn-of-thecentury garments in an exhibit titled The Victorians in Naples through fall at Palm Cottage. You might even get some insight into how early Neapolitans beat the heat although the exhibits 24-button leather boots dont seem to be the answer. Admission is free for members, $13 for others. For more information, call 261-8164 or visit www.napleshistoricalsociety.org. JUST FOR KIDS The kids are bored! Camp is expensive! Youd like to make a memory or two with them while you still have their attention! We have three of the best summer activities for children and their captive parent below, and two of them are free. Hit up Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, July 28 and Aug. 4, where kids 12 and under get free admission to partake in themed activities in the nature center. Kids can learn all about a select animal of the preserve through story time, nature films, crafts, face painting and more. 300 Tower Road. 530-5940 or www.rookerybay.org. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida also has some cool summer programming for kids and families. In the Dalton Discovery Center, eager minds can learn what its like to travel through Floridas ecosystems, encounter native Southwest Florida wildlife, meet the resident loggerhead turtle, Luna, and explore nature through various multimedia experiences. Theres also an interactive experience at the von Arx Wildlife Hospital, where kids can become junior veterinarians and discover how to help prevent injury to our native wildlife. Coming up Saturday, Aug. 12, see the Disneyland film Wings of Life, with screenings at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Narrated by Merryl Streep, the film follows the adventures of small-winged beasties like butter flies, hummingbirds and bats. Daily education programs MondaySaturday include Reptile Roundup at 11:15 a.m., Wildlife 101 at 12:15 p.m. and Ocean Discoveries at 1:15 p.m. The nature center is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. For more information to help plan you visit, go to www.conservancy.org. OK, this ones not in the air-conditioning, but we couldnt leave out Sunn-Fun Lagoon. Its impossible for the kids to pout with so much water play expressed in two slides, a lazy river, free swim pools with water features, splash pad, diving boards and a toddler play pool. Its free for toddlers under 3, and Collier residents get a $2 discount on admission, so its a cheap way to bring them home pooped. $6-$13 without discount. For more information, call 2524021 or visit www.napleswaterpark.com. Paragon Pavilion does parents a solid with free screenings of select kids movies at 10 a.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through summer. This isnt high culture, but its cool, dark and free. On deck are Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip (Aug. 1-3) followed by Home (Aug. 8-10) and Shrek the Third (Aug. 15-17) closing out the season. For more information, call 596-0008 or visit www.paragontheaters.com. MORE FILMS When the clouds roll in by 2 p.m. each day, theres no place better than a dark movie theater or your own living room listening to thunder rolling under the opening credits. Of course, you can go any day and see a new release, but whos to say theyll be worth your time and money? Better to chill out with a tried-and-true favorite everyone will enjoy. Silverspot in Mercato always has an extensive list of new releases, but what sets it apart are its special events such as the Sunday Flashback Cinema series. Organizers seem to be picking the best of Eighties cinema lately. Coming up: Footloose (July 30) and Top Gun (Aug. 6). Grab a snack and maybe a martini and settle in for the show. For more information, call 592-0300 or visit www.silverspot.net. Got a thing for dancers? The FGCU Renaissance Academys Classic Film Series features old favorites starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers at 2 p.m. on select Fridays through mid-August at the universitys Naples Campus. Up next: Shall We Dance? (1937) on Aug. 4 and The Barkleys of Broadway on Aug. 18. The Renaissance Academy also screens foreign films at 2 p.m. every other Sunday at the Naples Center. On July 30 its Force Majeure (Sweden, 2014). This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond, pre-teen children on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular, but during lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. Rated R (2 hours). And on Aug. 13, see My Life as a Zucchini (France and Switzerland, 2016). After losing his mother, a young boy is sent to a foster home with other orphans his age where he begins to learn the meaning of trust and true love. The silly title and adorable characters belie a sober story whose colorful visuals delight the senses even as it braves dark emotional depths. Rated PG (1 hour, 10 minutes). Movies at the Renaissance Academy are $6 for members, $8 for others. Call 434-4737 or visit www.fgcu.edu for more information. Sometimes, being in public wont do. What if you just need to lie down because youve overheated mowing the lawn for the third time this week? Netflix has you covered. We suggest you start with winter-themed films to bring your body temperature down. Fargo is always a bloody, frosty hit, as is The Shining. Not feeling creepy? Tilda Swinton is downright frigid as Jadis the White Witch in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and youll probably feel sympathy shivers for the poor Jamaican bobsled team who travels to Calgary (brrr!) for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Cool Runnings. CLASSES For the ambitious among us, arts organizations offer classes in the summer when their time isnt occupied with shows, exhibitions and fundraisers. These two are our favorites among them, particularly because they are relatively low stakes and perfect for the summer state of mind. Get your heart rate up with The Naples Players in a dance class focusing on how to step out in high heels. Its from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, July 29, at the Sugden Community Theatre. Instructor Kat Ebaugh schools students on various dance moves to find balance, lines and placement. $30 for members, $55 for non-members. Call 434-7340 or visit www.naplesplayers.org for more information. Naples Art Association hosts Art, Drink & Be Merry painting workshops from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, July 27 and Aug. 31. With wine and paint supplies included, guests will leave with a completed acrylic and a newfound sense of accomplishment. $50.

Promotion, new staff at Gulfshore Playhouse SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYGulfshore Playhouse announces the promotion of Jeffrey Binder to associate artistic director and the addition of Liz Rountree as chief development officer, Kelly Colligan as manager of donor relations and Megan McCombs as education associate to the staff of the professional company.

He feels overlooked, an outcast in his own family. He works in publishing as his day job but is a struggling playwright who pens works about rich, privileged WASP families just like his own. In fact, hes inspired by them. He returns home to get permission from his parents to proceed with his latest play, which, he admits, cuts pretty close to the bone. His play is called The Cocktail Hour, which is also the name of the play were watching unfold onstage at the Golden Gate Community Center. Even though they havent even read the script, Johns parents, Bradley (David Whalley) and Ann (Casey Cobb), are appalled. Not only are they unsupportive, theyre critical of their sons work. (Bradley claims people will demand their money back after seeing it.) Theyre more concerned about keeping up appearances and what other people might think. Kevin Moriartys set for the Studio Players reflects this. It contains a white taffeta couch, a white fireplace and a black grand piano; nothing in the sedate living room stands out or reveals any personal taste or interest. Johns father is continually negative about theater in general, and his mother asks why wont he write a book instead, because then it wouldnt be so public. The three are enjoying the cocktail hour together while waiting for the help to serve dinner. Sister Nina (Karen Anglin) shows up and joins them. But their talk is more civilized arguing than light-hearted conversation. If this is fighting, its fighting dressed up in pearls and white gloves. The fact that John, allegedly middleaged, would ask his parents permission to go forward with a play, speaks volumes about his relationship with them. It is respectful, yes, but it also suggests he might still be tied to their apron strings or more accurately, to their checkbook. The father is fond of quoting others, but he wont allow John to look anything up for verification, for fear he might be proven wrong. He thinks America should go back to the way it used to be. He longs for the days when people stood around the piano and sang songs from Kiss Me, Kate. He complains about how you cant find good help nowadays, and firmly believes people should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. (He rails against FDRs New Deal, claiming, He gave everybody a free ride.) However, this is the height of hypocrisy, as Bradley himself is only wealthy because of his wifes money; he rarely works and instead plays golf and schmoozes with his friends at the club. Mr. Whalley is the only one speaking in a British accent, which is confusing. (I learned at intermission that the actor himself is British. But Im not sure why the director didnt ask him to speak in an American accent.) The cast also rushes through the dialogue at a fast pace, especially at the top of Act I. And Mr. Whalley is difficult to hear when upstage or whenever he turns away from the audience. The willowy Ms. Cobb presents an elegant Ann, entitled and privileged. She obviously has a drinking problem, as she keeps asking for just a splash. Shes the type of woman who doesnt laugh at a joke but instead says airily, Oh, thats funny. When dinner is delayed, the cocktail hour lasts much longer then an hour, and everyone drinks more than they should. But strangely, no one seems to grow intoxicated, and John, who warns that he becomes a mean drunk, still seems even-keeled. This all makes the revelations and conversations that happen in Act II not as dynamic as they could be. The characters still seem stone sober, and no ones losing control. Numerous people in this play harbor secret desires. Nina wants to go to Cleveland and learn how to train dogs. Theyre her passion. The younger brother, Jigger, who never makes an appearance onstage, wants to move across the country and build boats. John would rather be a successful playwright than a publishing executive. Even the mother reveals hidden dreams. Theyre all bound by propriety, by societal and familial expectations. But some, however, are able to break free of those restraints. Mr. Heindl, who stepped into the role of John at the 11th hour, replacing another actor, does a good job and makes his character likeable. Nina displays her resentment as the dutiful daughter whos always taking care of others. But fulfilling her dreams is as easy as just asking her father to write her a check. I wish the program had provided some information about the play: where the characters are and in what time period. You think the actions taking place in the present, but then historical references made in the dialogue are jarring, placing it earlier. (The script sets the play in the mid-1970s in a city in upstate New York.) I wish director Paula Keenan had worked more on the pacing and dynamics. It also wouldve been a stronger production if the director and cast had mined the depths and nuances of the play, rather than just taking it for surface value. Its a subtly clever play, very meta. Its almost like a hall of mirrors. (You can also see the various themes and subjects the playwright would cover in his career, with mentions of dining rooms and dogs and possible Indian blood in the family.) The late AR Gurney wrote a play called The Cocktail Hour about a playwright whos written a play called The Cocktail Hour. The play that were seeing unfold onstage is the play that the character of John has written. The characters actually start referring to different parts of a play, even discussing the need for a kicker at the end. Its a fine balancing act, and difficult to actors to get just the right tone. When the play was over and I was leaving, I overheard a fellow theatergoer talking about what he had just seen. That was great! he enthused. It was just like a Carol Burnett sketch. Thats high praise for a comedy, but Im not sure thats what the playwright had in mind. This production of The Cocktail Hour packs some punches, but unfortunately feels a little too watered down to be intoxicating. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Cocktail Hour>> Who: The Studio Players >> When: Through Aug. 6 >> Where: Golden Gate Community Center >> Cost: $25 >> Info: 398-9192 or www.thestudioplayers.com COURTESY PHOTOJesse Heindl, Casey Cobb, David Whalley and Karen Anglin are all in the family in The Cocktail Hour.

CONTRACT BRIDGE Famous hand BY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in the semifinal of the 1992 playoffs to select a team to represent the United States at the World Team Olympiad later that year. When Eric Rodwell and Jeff Meckstroth held the North-South cards against David Berkowitz and Larry Cohen, the bidding went as shown. Cohens two-diamond opening showed a weak two-bid in either major. Meckstroths two-notrump overcall was natural, ostensibly describing a hand of opening notrump strength. He was gambling that Berkowitz wouldnt know which suit his partner had and would lead the wrong one. North-South then settled into three notrump after Rodwells Stayman inquiry did not bear fruit. As Meckstroth had hoped, Berkowitz did indeed lead the wrong suit, opting for a low spade. Declarer took Easts nine with the king and immediately returned a spade, hoping Berkowitz would duck. If the king of diamonds was favorably located and it was nine tricks would be there for the taking. But Berkowitz had been paying close attention to the proceedings and was not about to let Meckstroth steal the game-going trick. Knowing full well at this point that his partners suit was hearts, Berkowitz rose with the ace of spades and accurately fired back the queen of hearts to cater to the possibility that South might hold the singleton jack. When the smoke cleared, declarer was down three for minus 300. At the other table, North-South wound up in four diamonds, making five for a score of plus 150, which gave their team a combined pickup of 450 points (10 IMPs) on the deal. 4221 East Tamiami Trail, NaplesPricing good from July 27-August 2, 2017.

Our regular lunch menu is available. Shirley Temple was a part of the earliest part of my days of collecting. The child actress, who lifted the spirits of Depression-era audiences with a song, a dance and a smile, had licensed her image to everything from dolls to kitchenware in the 1930s. And in the early 1970s, all those children of the Depression were looking to capture a little memory of their childhoods, paying premiums for the composition Shirley Temple dolls made by the Ideal Toy Co., as well as the vintage cobalt glass mugs, pitchers and cereal bowls that bore Temples ghostly decal image I always wanted one, too. Those dolls were made in the tens of thousands for little girls of the 1930s. Decades later, they often paid top dollar for one in good condition and wearing its original clothing, all in a bid to recapture some of the magic of their childhood. There it is in a nutshell: Much of the buzz around Temple collectibles had to do with nostalgia. Thats why Ideal reintroduced a Shirley Temple doll in 1957, around the time her movies began to be broadcast on TV. And Ideal did it again in the early s, introducing a Shirley Temple doll it hoped those girls of the 30s would buy for their grandchildren. So when Shirley Temple died in 2014 at the age of 85, my mom and other doll collectors assumed their dolls might rise in value. Instead, the opposite happened. Nationally known appraiser and auctioneer Tim Luke shook his head when my mom told him she was surprised her Shirley Temple dolls had not increased in value. But the youngest of the people for whom Temple was a household name are well into their 70s. Thats past the age when many people still are acquiring pieces for their collections, Mr. Luke said. Temple dolls were made in the hundreds of thousands over the course of several decades, and the market is about to be flooded with them as those collectors downsize or die. Something to keep in mind: Nostalgia fuels much of collecting thats why folks who grew up in the s and 60s gravitated to the streamlined Heywood Wakefield furniture their parents had bought new back in the day. Those pieces are selling for much less than they were even a decade ago. The same could be said for these dolls. We all want a bit of our childhood. But, at least in this case, we expect to pay less for those precious bits of someone elses. As for me, I never did get a Shirley Temple pitcher or bowl, but Im not complaining. COLLECTORS CORNER Surely you will recognize this doll i h f a d m scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Bought: First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs First Thrift, 9751 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 239992-0285. Paid: $25 The Skinny: I always admired Shirley Temples capacity to generate joy among movie viewers of the 1930s. She radiated the qualities of a natural performer who made her song and dance seem effortless. The Ideal Toy Co. made dolls in the images of such celebrities of the day as Fanny Brice, Shirley Temple, Deanna Durbin and Judy Garland. This 15-inch Shirley Temple has a little dust in her dimples, but the coloring of her vinyl head is lovely, as is her hair. Her dress is of the period, if not an original, and she sports her original white vinyl Mary Janes, marked Ideal. At one time, she might have been worth upward of $200; most dolls now list at $50-$75 online. THE FIND:A 1957 Shirley Temple dollSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis 1957 Shirley Temple doll, made by Ideal, is in good condition, with appropriate clothing and original shoes. After all, we cant have everything we want and at least I have the memory of seeing them.
C14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 27-AUGUST 2, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ANTIQUESSome great early designers had success, then lost everything BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELSometimes a designer becomes very popular with a new design, sells his products, becomes wealthy, and then his designs become commonplace and he eventually goes bankrupt. That is the sad story of Warren McArthur, a talented designer of the 1930s who was among the first to make aluminum furniture. McArthur (1885-1961) was born in Chicago and grew up in a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. He went to Cornell to study mechanical engineering, and by 1914, he had filed for 10 patents for lamp designs. He moved to Phoenix and, with his brother, owned car dealerships, a radio station and built the Arizona Biltmore. He also patented a useful adapter for a car radiator. All were successful. In 1929, he moved to Los Angeles and started a metal furniture business. He improved the manufacturing process with his inventions, including an aluminum that didnt tarnish and a way to permanently color the metal. The brightly colored metal furniture was popular in Hollywood, and was featured in movie theaters and stars homes. During the Depression in the 1930s, McArthur moved to New York City, and he moved to Connecticut two years later. His company made airplane seats during World War II, but went bankrupt in 1948. McArthur died in 1961. Q: I have a 22-piece chocolate set in excellent condition. Its marked with an R, Bavaria, Germany and warranted 18 carat gold. Each plate has a 1-inch border of gold, the cups are gold and the pitcher with lid is gold. Does the gold trim make it very valuable? A: The gold trim does not mean its very valuable. The words 8 carat gold indicate the alloy used for the gold trim is 75 percent gold, but there is very little gold used on the porcelain. A chocolate set should have a pot, creamer, sugar, six small plates, and six cups and saucers. It would sell for less than $50. Q: I have a large bowl marked Z. S. & Co. with a wiggly line underneath and the word Bavaria under the line. The bowl is decorated with roses and has a scalloped rim. If my pieces are worth anything, I wont turn it into a bird bath. A: This mark was used after 1880 by Zeh, Scherzer & Co., a porcelain factory located in Rehau, Bavaria, Germany. The company became part of Allerthal A.G., an investment company, in 1991 and porcelain production stopped in 1992. Porcelain is too fragile to be a bird bath. If the patterns is attractive, your bowl might sell well at an antiques shop. A bowl big enough for a bird bath might bring $50-$75. Q: Is an empty Chicken Cock Bourbon whiskey bottle of any value? It has a red metal screw lid, front and back labels, and an Indiana tax label. The bottle is embossed with chickens and the name. Its condition is good. A: Chicken Cock Whiskey was originally distilled in 1856 in Paris, Ky. It became a popular brand in the late 1800s. During prohibition, Chicken Cock had to move its production to Canada. It was smuggled into the U.S. inside tin cans that were opened with a key. Chicken Cock was a popular whiskey in Prohibition-era speakeasies like the Cotton Club in New York City. Jazz great Duke Ellington wrote about Chicken Cock in his memoirs, referring to it as the brand that was served in a tin can. After Prohibition, the brand was trademarked by American Medicinal Spirits Company, but in the 1950s, a fire in the distillery meant the end of production. A few years ago, the brand was revived, and Chicken Cock blended whiskies are now being made in Charleston, S.C., and sold in metal cans. Your Chicken Cock pint flask is worth about $20.

Hijinks and hilarity ensue. A silly French comedy in the style of Jacques Tati and the great silent comedians, its quirky and playful in all the best ways. Not Rated (but nothing objectionable).War for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Mr. Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Mr. 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 (Mr. Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Mr. Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor and a winning performance from Mr. Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13.Despicable Me (Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker) Gru (Mr. Carell), his long-lost brother Dru (Mr. Carell again) and Lucy try to stop 1980s-inspired villain Balthazar Bratt (Mr. Parker) from destroying Hollywood. Too much focus on Mr. 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 more clever than you expect, and the visual effects and action are strong. Rated PG-13.The Hero (Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman) An aging former movie star (Mr. Elliott) tries to reconcile his disappointing life after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Although Mr. Elliotts performance is stellar, the story is underdeveloped and some important characters barely register. Rated R.

Roughly 400,000 Allied soldiers are trapped on the beach of this northern enclave, surrounded and dominated by German firepower. The only hope for survival is evacuation, and that becomes less likely by the hour. In a Hollywood story, these underdog Allies would fight their way out. But writer/director Christopher Nolan (the Dark Knight trilogy) isnt interested in a Hollywood story. Instead, Dunkirk focuses on the sometimes heroic, sometimes selfish and always brave actions of individuals on land, at sea and in the air, and how each contributed to the evacuation of more than 330,000 men. The film is one-dimensional, but its within these confines that Mr. Nolan finds its heart. There are three storylines: One covers the course of a week and takes place on land, as soldiers (Fionn Whitehead, singer Harry Styles and more) try to survive and their commander (Kenneth Branagh) tries to get them on ships and away from the beach. The second storyline takes place over one day at sea, as ships try to evade German bomber planes and British civilians (including one played by Oscar winner Mark Rylance) cross the channel to help the evacuation. The third storyline takes place over the course of an hour as fighter pilots (headed by Tom Hardy) try to keep the men below them safe. In uniting the triptych with a common goal and theme, Mr. Nolan keeps the audience focused with gripping filmmaking. The editing is brisk (a normal film directed by Mr. Nolan runs 2 hours, and this one clocks in at 1 hour, 45 minutes. Part of the reason is its not traditional. Rather than an exposition setting the stage before the plot kicks in, Mr. Nolan opens Dunkirk with soldiers walking through the title town and then starting to run because theyre under attack. Just like that, were in the middle of the action. Another reason we become so immersed is because we cant help it. Mr. Nolan and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema shot the film with IMAX cameras, meaning everything we see is meant for a large screen, from the cockpits of the spitfire planes to underneath the boats to long lines of men waiting to escape. As a German plane attacks in one scene, Allied soldiers lay on the ground and cover their heads. We see the bombs hit, first impacting the water, then the beach and culminating in an explosion mere feet from our hero (Mr. Whitehead) that sends his comrades flying. Its a breathtaking sequence. Hans Zimmers tense, urgent score punctuates the action and close calls, and there are many. The sound effects are also noticeable, if for no other reason than because at my screening the bass was so loud the seats were literally shaking at the sound of gunfire. Its one thing to see the action; to feel it as well makes it enthralling. Finally, Dunkirk feels palpable because it was shot on (at least some) of the locations of the actual events. When combined with the fact that Mr. Nolan eschews CGI for more practical effects (meaning he shoots as much as he can on set and doesnt rely on computers to create half his movie), theres a totality to the film that feels primitive and tangible. Were used to Mr. Nolan making daring and ambitious films (Interstellar), and though its different in scale, Dunkirk certainly has his stamp on it. See it on as big a screen as you can. o t t l i N dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Winston Churchil gave his famous we shall ght speech after the evacuation, but cautioned that it should not be looked upon as a victory.NOLAN BRANAGH RYLANCE thirdstreetsouth.com 239.434.6533 Discover a Dozen Glorious Restaurants and CafesOver 50 Unique and Sophisticated Shops and GalleriesGracious Strolls amidst Abundant Flowers, Fountains and Courtyards!Gather Your Best Friends and Come to the Most Charm Filled Neighborhood of All

C20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 27-AUGUST 2, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY adjustments will need to be made. But even if they had more time, the cadre of costumers cant transform some of the multiple costumes worn by both casts of actors. While they play the same role, some of the actors sizes are not alike enough to retool a costume. Teen Deloris, played by Tiffany Benjamin, will wear a completely different gown in the finale than the one worn by adult Deloris, played by Jazmine Vizena. And new shoes are purchased for the entire teen cast. TNP costume designer Dot Auchmoody costumed the adult version of Sister Act, allowing Ms. McKerrow to focus on the three KidzAct summer shows: Disneys Beauty and the Beast Jr. and James and the Giant Peach Jr. as well as Sister Act. While Ms. McKerrow focused solely on the youth program costuming, Sister Act director and choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara and musical director Charles Fornara have been working double shifts directing two full casts of singing and dancing nuns and thugs that make up TNPs highly choreographed summer musical. Some of the teen cast also worked double duty, both rehearsing for Sister Act and attending KidzActs teen conservatory to focus on sharpening their singing, dancing and acting skills. The Teen version of Sister Act comedy is filled with the same powerful gospel music, loveable characters and outrageous dancing as the adult version and the same score from Tonyand eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken and the same full orchestra as the adult version. If you saw Sister Act during the adult run you might believe you saw the most high-energy show possible, Ms. McKerrow says. But just wait, because when the teens take the stage, the energy is through the roof and bam! they knock your socks off.

From 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 3, Cosmos Italian Caf & Pizzeria hosts an all-you-can-eat buffet of pie selections including cheese, sausage, margherita and more with a $10 donation to Collier County 100 Club. The club provides immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen police and first responders. Cosmos owner, Gianluca Corso, is a member of the club and is hoping to beat last years earnings of about $5,600. His goal is $10,000, which he knows is ambitious, but his ovens are fired up and so is he. That will be difficult but we can try, he said. Im planning to make double the pizzas this year, around 300. Working in his favor is the generosity of people in the community and their commitment to supporting first responders. The minimum is $10, but some people drop $100 and some even drop $500, Mr. Corso says. It depends on what they got. Its a great event because everyone understands the importance of first responders. They are the people who come to your door and put their lives at risk for a total stranger. Hell have about 1,000 blue glow sticks at the ready for a blue light processional of police cars, motorcycles and other emergency vehicles, which will also be on display while pizza lovers enjoy their slices of pie. His hope is that more local businesses will be encouraged to host similar events when they see how residents so enthusiastically support emergency service providers. The more people are doing to make this to make a first responder charity successful, the happier I am, he says. Cosmos Italian Caf & Pizzeria is at 536 Tamiami Trail N.

The chicken was tender and juicy with a nice crispy coating. It comes with a side of Nashville sauce so you can get even more of that sweet/spicy deliciousness. Im not much of a fries guy, but the hand-cut ones served with this dish were perfectly crisp and full of flavor, and I ate them all. Ill order this one again.

Think steak au poivre and crepes Suzette but factor in microgreens and nasturtium garnishes. The presentation of dishes is thoughtful, precise and lovely. Start with the C Level sampler trio of zesty ceviche, lush and airy pat and spinach-artichoke spread thats less heavy than most versions. C Level offers a fair amount of lighter seafood options, but its hard to pass up perfectly cooked herb-crusted rack of lamb and classic tournedos Rossini, twin filets of tender beef topped with thin slices of pat de foie gras and draped in Prigourdine sauce, a silky demi-glace sauce enriched with truffles. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Fernandez the Bull Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 6539097 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 is operating 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, and 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 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Several years after a memorable debut, Figs still upholds a high level of quality in food and service undoubtedly thanks to the impeccable standards of chef-owner Sam Tadros. Time has taken no toll either on the plush dining room, with its beautiful wall tapestries, Moroccan-style lamps and rich palette of garnet and gold. Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried may find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: Long tender tubes of squid are charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with unexpected sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake. Desserts are made in house and worth the calories. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2015 Mediterrano, 336 13th Ave. S., Naples; 261-7498 There arent many places in which the owner himself greets and seats you, but thats the level of hospitality found at this lovely little restaurant filled with soothing aquamarine hues that bring to mind the beauty of the Mediterranean waters. I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria, but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. Try not to gorge. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, was a refreshing end to the meal. Beer and wine served.

Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow peper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops were moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard. From the entrees, great choices were the seafood medley, the saffron chicken korma and the Nizams kofte, vegetable and cheese dumplings. Full bar.

Ocean Prime is a small chain run by Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. There are branches in Tampa and Orlando as well as in several other spots around the country. Like its predecessor, Avenue Five, which had a short and unsuccessful run in this space, Ocean Prime is a place at which you can easily expect to spend $100 per person on dinner more if you order their higher-end bottles of wine or 1 ounces of Remy Martin Louis XIII ($200) for dessert. But while meals here are spendy, Ocean Prime delivers with excellent food served in generous portions, an exemplary staff, a series of well-appointed dining rooms and a lively bar. They pay attention to details in the front and back of the house. I watched one server carefully primping the tablecloths to make sure they were properly displayed, and then checking to make sure all the chairs at the tables were the same distance from the table. The restrooms are equipped with toilets, sinks and dryers that allow customers to take care of everything without touching a button or handle. There is even hair spray, dental floss and other necessities set out in the restroom for guests convenience. Now none of that is absolutely necessary, but in an upscale restaurant, these thoughtful touches provide the sort of value customers spending generously have come to expect. We arrived on the early end of a recent Saturday evening and were rewarded with a lovely table with a banquette right by the window, allowing for prime people watching along Fifth Avenue. We enjoyed the contrasts of a Rolls Royce cruising by followed by a shirtless skateboarder and a Bentley. (I also noted the delightful absence of those annoying little tables for two that many restaurants insist on and that never have enough room for two people who order drinks and food.) From our vantage point, we could also observe the goings-on in the bar, where customers were watching tennis and enjoying cocktails. Our server, Danielle, appeared promptly to tell us the nightly specials so that we could make our drink decisions. My companion tried a glass of Don Olegario albarino ($13.50) while I chose a refreshing cucumber gimlet ($13), made with Bombay Sapphire gin, muddled cucumber and limejuice. A basket containing chewy little pretzel rolls, a small loaf of sourdough bread and soft, spreadable butter arrived next. The bread is made in house, our server told us, and was so good we had to force ourselves not to eat all of it. We quickly realized the wisdom of that decision when our appetizers arrived. The Point Judith calamari with sweet chili sauce and candied cashews ($16) contained a bounty of golden-crisp squid lightly bathed in chili sauce with crunchy bean sprouts, julienned carrots and scallions and cashews scattered about. It was large enough for two to share. It was also a creative departure from the usual fried rings swerved with red sauce. The surf and turf ($19) contained two huge, tender scallops and shredded slow-braised short ribs atop creamy mashed potatoes with a rich demi-glace. This could well have served as an entre. I might consider that with a salad or lobster bisque on a return trip. There is a selection of steaks for $38$50 but, as in most steakhouses, they come a la carte. Vegetables are $10-$19. The seafood looked more interesting, and most of those dishes came with vegetables. We tried the Florida grouper ($44) with a shallot caper reduction and crispy garlic potatoes. The grouper was tender, flaky and moist and the sauce didnt overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. The potato, however, was nowhere close to crisp and was disappointing overall. An entre of crab cakes ($38, or you can get a single for an appetizer for $16) comes with sweet corn cream succotash, which was an appealing mix of corn, asparagus and tomatoes in a light cream sauce. The crab cakes were full of lump crabmeat with very little filling, which is the way all crab cakes should be made. We shared a side of black truffle mac and cheese ($14), which had a few shreds of black truffle on top and a faint flavor of black truffle in the smooth, creamy sauce. For a final course, we opted for the signature dessert: the 10-layer carrot cake with pineapple syrup and whipped cream. It did indeed have 10 thin layers of cake and cream cheese icing that was not overly sweet. The pineapple syrup, served on the side with a dollop of whipped cream, provided a tart counterpoint. Despite all wed eaten before, we finished this delicious house-made treat. Not only was the service excellent throughout the meal, I received a call the next day asking how our dinner experience had been. That attention to detail may just help Ocean Prime keep customers hooked. Florida grouper with a delicate shallot and caper reduction. Crab cakes accompanied by sweet corn cream succotash.
