MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYHarvard LawHarvard Law School is perhaps the most prestigious law school in the nation. Quote-unquote. Thats the first sentence of a frontpage opinion in The Harvard Law Record. The words represent a mantra frequently repeated by those who care about money, status, power, and influence in law, business, higher education and government: Harvard is the best, they say. Yale, Princeton and Columbia are pretty good, too, along with a couple of others. The law schools current role is to produce the premiere legal guardians of international corporate control and state power, the writer adds apparently people like Anthony Scaramucci, Harvard Law 9, the ousted White House communications chief who stepped out of a highprofile career as an investment banker and hedge fund manager to take the job. With an endowment of $1.7 billion, Harvard Law has been compensated handsomely for its role defending corporate capitalism; indeed considered as part of Harvard Universitys sprawling $36.4 billion endowment empire, it might be seen more as a giant hedge fund masquerading as a teaching institution rather than the reverse. The institution socializes its student body to choose big law over the public interest through crushing student debt loads, courses that focus almost exclusively on the legal problems of the wealthy, and its attachment to elite foundations and projects. Getting a Harvard Law grad in your boardroom or government chambers these days, it seems, is like getting the gunfighter Jack Wilson (Shane) or the Sith fighter Darth Maul (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) to help you put down wannabes, the little guys and do-gooders. Theres only one problem with that approach to success for the nations most prestigious law school: Its unethical and immoral. Since words are actions especially words in government that amount to far more than New York style, as some are falsely calling it Mr. Scaramucci has shown himself to be an unethical blowhard in both word and deed, in spite of his Harvard pedigree. What I want to do is, I want to f---ing kill all the leakers and I want to get the Presidents agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people, he told a reporter last week, adding some other more vulgar comments. Only one conclusion can be drawn from that statement: Harvard Law, along with Western Civilization, the basic goodness of the American people, public schools and Mr. and Mrs. Scaramucci of Long Island (where little Tony grew up) all appear to have failed the man. Especially if such a raging outburst is any indication of the best we can do and the brightest we can produce. Curious about the vitamins he failed to get in his Ivy League cereal, I called the Harvard Law School and asked if they require students to study ethics. Youve heard of ethics, perhaps: the moral principles requiring even-handed fairness in professional behavior; equal treatment of all under the law; equal opportunities for everybody; and defense of the weak, the poor, the young, the sick and the old, just to start with. We have a requirement that students take courses in professional responsibility, replied Michelle Deakin, managing director of media relations and public information at Harvard Law School. But to explain it and provide background, Ms. Deakin said, she would have to go off the record. Why? Because I dont want it to be about me, she said. Some spokeswoman. She wouldnt speak, but she emailed a link or two. Harvard Law students, apparently, can pick up ethics by taking courses in which doing the right thing is embedded in the subject matter. Among others theres a government lawyer course listed in the online catalogue that covers the ethics requirement: Students intern for part of a semester in Washington, D.C., probably with real government lawyers and ethicists like Anthony Scaramucci. Since Harvards spokeswoman wouldnt speak about ethics, I called the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida in Gainesville with the same question. The school is rated at 41 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, but second in tax law and ninth in environmental law. There, I found sunshine. Amy Mashburn, the associate dean for Academic Affairs and a professor, told me students at all accredited law schools (about 200 in the country) have to pass an ethics course in professional responsibility, as its called. And they take a specialized bar exam solely devoted to legal ethics rules that 40-some states have based their licensure on. Students here are also required to take an Introduction to Lawyering with an ethical component. It wasnt always that way. This is a result of Watergate, Professor Mashburn explained. The country was mortified because there was a lawyer under every rock in that scandal. So yes, Mr. Scaramucci had to take some kind of course that mentioned ethics at Harvard Law School. The public will say, Arent lawyers supposed to behave better? Professor Mashburn said. And what I say is, we emphasize professionalism at every turn. Unethical behavior does not come from ignorance. The rules are designed to insure that no lawyers could claim they were ignorant of their professional responsibilities. Or of the ideals of their profession. One of Mr. Scaramuccis classmates, Richard Kahlenberg, characterized him this way in a Washington Monthly recollection: a big personality an exuberant figure who proposed to his girlfriend on a Times Square bulletin board. At Harvard Mr. Scaramucci never even considered public interest law as many students did, however briefly, he added. Like the president whom Scaramucci would go on to serve, getting rich was the goal and winning was everything. s a p b d J roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The people making these denials go to great lengths to avoid owning up to historical fact, and they sanitize history and heritage so they will not have to. This is Southern heritage cleansed of its sins. It is accurate only insofar as it admits human tragedy on an unprecedented scale, omitting the legacy of damage and injustice done to millions of blacks. Anyone who challenges the myth-making stir a rebels resolve to justify a terrible wrong as a noble right. But a tidal shift occurred after the South Carolina State Legislature ordered the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the Capitol grounds in Columbia. It was a sober act of modest contrition in response to the mass murder in 2015 of nine African-American worshipers attending an evening Bible study in downtown Charleston. The trial of the murderer left no doubt as to why the Confederate battle flag featured prominently in his crime. It was the symbol of his own and others racial hatred. South Carolina state legislators publicly acknowledged this fact when the flag was removed from state-sanctioned display on government grounds. Of course, the backlash was immediate. The Ku Klux Klan organized a march of white supremacists in protest and then a heritage, not haters rollback began, defending the flags display and to deter communities from re-visiting the placement in public places of memorials eulogizing the Confederate cause. But Americans werent deterred. They were moved to action by the consequence of sustaining a false narrative injurious in its extremes. Relics of the Confederacy are everywhere, in the halls of government, on public squares, emblazoned on public buildings, flying aloft and etched in stone. They are honorifics hidden in plain sight, memorials that evince, in these times, a welling contradiction between the more perfect union the Civil War fought to preserve and a vision of America had the South won the war and slavery survived intact. None has addressed this issue more bluntly than the mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu. Last May he made a public speech defending the removal of the last of four Confederate monuments in the city. He was plain-spoken about the historical heart of the matter. Said Landrieu, It is self-evident that these men did not fight for the United States of America. They fought against it. They may have been warriors, but in this cause, they were not patriots. The Civil War is over, and the Confederacy lost and we are better for it. Surely, we are far enough removed from this dark time to acknowledge that the cause of the Confederacy was wrong. Florida lawmakers have proven less sanguine about the need to move on. But there is hope. Following the Charleston massacre, the Florida Legislature agreed it was time to remove Confederate Gen. Edmond Kirby Smith from the U.S. Capitols Statuary Hall, one of two Florida honorees. (Dr. John Gorrie, the father of air conditioning, is the other.) Smiths likeness has been in Statuary Hall since 1922. His claim to fame? He was in Florida when he surrendered his saber and the last military force of the Confederacy in 1865. Though a Floridan by birth, his connections to Florida are otherwise unremarkable. A lengthy process ensued to replace Smith. Nominees were invited statewide. After winnowing the suggestions, three candidates emerged: Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, author of The Everglades: River of Grass and mother of the Everglades National Park; Mary McLeod Bethune, one of 17 children, daughter of former slaves, nationally known author, educator and civil rights activist and founder of Bethune-Cookman University; and George Washington Jenkins Jr., founder of the Publix grocery chain. In April, the Florida Senate passed a resolution to replace Smith with Bethune. The House resisted the Senates lead, proposing Douglas. Then a third possibility arose, blocking the bill and derailing the entire process. State Rep. Scott Plakon, the House committee chair, complained the process was flawed. But really, Plakon favored Walt Disney. His discontent brought legislation to a standstill and won Gen. Smith a reprieve from removal for another year. In reply, Randolph Bracy Jr., a guest columnist for the Orlando Sentinel wrote, Even as the Florida Legislature tries to address the states sordid history and mistreatment of African-Americans since the Civil War, some members of the Florida House of Representatives continue to drag their feet. Put Bethune in the statuary in Washington now, and stop fighting the Civil War over again. The postscript to his commentary added, Bethune would be the first person and woman of color from the 50 states voted to such an honor noting a special act of Congress inducted Rosa Parks in the Hall in 2005. That no woman of color has been honored by a state is a disgrace in and of itself. Mr. Bracy is right. The time is now for simple justice.

The shooting is long over, the issues long decided. Yet fueled by atavistic vestiges, we now have controversy about the removal of Confederate public monuments and related emblems. From West Palm Beach to New Orleans, Alabama to South Carolina, neo-Confederates are fighting to prolong a discredited spirit of exclusionary regression, as forces for inclusionary progress strive to surmount it. This erupted after the 2015 massacre at an African-American church in Charleston, committed by a racist who embraced the Confederate flag. In a welcome reaction, that flag was lowered from South Carolinas statehouse grounds.The movement has spread. The Confederate flag came down from Alabamas state capitol. A Jefferson Davis statue was removed in New Orleans. And in West Palm Beach, the question has been whether to evict a privately owned similar statue from the city-owned Woodlawn Cemetery.While Confederate features on private property can be just as displeasing, they are free speech and dont suggest general acceptance. Also outside this debate should be objective historical markers. We must differentiate between respecting all who served in the Civil War and why the South fought. We can honor Southern soldiers as fellow human beings without honoring their cause of subjugating other human beings. An army battling for states rights to maintain slavery is nothing to celebrate. Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg praised these honored dead and the brave men, living and dead, who struggled here without limiting his tribute to Union soldiers. He wisely wanted post-war reconciliation but never legitimized an insurrection which the Constitution calls treason and neither should we. Even after 152 years, publicly sanctioned Confederate landmarks imply that secession was justified; its impetus, perpetuating slavery, was defensible; and the offense to African-Americans and all others who abhor racial prejudice is inconsequential. Avoiding those implications is not an attempt to erase history. Its an intellectually honest and morally imperative effort to put that dark chapter of history into perspective. Confederate memorabilia belong in places of study, where we can learn from that conflict while not glorifying the root cause. Its amazing that we still argue over this, but as William Faulkner noted: The past is never dead. Its not even past. For some people, thats true. Yet our country cant live in the past especially one corrupted by bigotry and public institutions should not encourage people to wallow in it. Lets outgrow misplaced romanticism. In our multi-racial country, no group should be denigrated explicitly or implicitly by a government that whitewashes past persecutions. Die-hard secessionists, white supremacists and their kind are a minority even if they imagine they have a friend in our divisive president. But despite any far-right backlash, the growing pressure to shun Confederate artifacts proves our progress. This wouldnt have happened generations ago. Our sculptures, flags and other symbols show what we Americans cherish the memories we value and the identity we prize. They should reflect the best of our past and hopes for the future. Reminders of slaverys supporters do not do that. Its time for public monuments and other hallmarks to stop saluting the defenders of a shameful practice. Its time that all our objects of honor, from flags to statues, declare that amid our diversity we are one people.

If more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. With a call to 911 and giving handsonly CPR, we all can be equipped to double or triple a persons chance of survival. Training courses developed and scientifically endorsed by the AHA are for every level of learner from lay rescuers to those trained to work in hospitals and intensive care units. Cardiac arrest happens when there is an electrical problem with the heart that causes irregular heartbeats. The victim will become unresponsive and stop breathing. Because the hearts pumping action is broken, the blood flow to the brain, lungs, and other organs is jeopardized and death will occur within minutes if treatment is not received. Heart attack happens when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked. This blockage may be caused by fatty deposit build-up in the heart vessels or arteries. The victim may have a wide range of symptoms including discomfort in the chest or other parts of the upper body, shortness of breath, cold sweats, and/or nausea/vomiting. Symptoms may start slow and then last for hours, days, or weeks before the heart attack happens. Men and women can have very different symptoms so it is important to address them right away. To address cardiac incidents occurring outside of the hospital, knowing the chain of survival is key. Recognition of cardiac arrest or heart attack and quick activation of the emergency response system, 911, is the first step in the chain and key to survival. Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation with an emphasis on chest compressions is the second step. Compressions should be delivered quickly with the victim laying on a hard surface, away from surrounding dangers. Rapid defibrillation, if available, using an automated external defibrillator device is the third step. This is an electrical stimulation of the heart muscle to get the heart beating at a normal rate. In recent years, these devices have been mandated for parks, arenas, schools, and other venues that draw large crowds. The last step is advanced life support and post-cardiac arrest care. This happens during the transport of the victim by emergency medical technicians/paramedics to the hospital where a team of physicians, nurses, respiratory care and cardiovascular technology professionals will take over the care. The FSW School of Health Professions is an approved training site for AHA life-saving courses. They are the exclusive training site for Lee Health Systems professional physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, cardiovascular technicians, and radiologic technologists. Additionally, FSW offers training for students entering the health professions. The business of saving lives is constantly proving to be an amazing return on investment. Witnessing a cardiac arrest is a frightening experience, so our goal is to give students the confidence they need to jump in and begin CPR. The FSW AHA instructors are skilled EMS professionals with a passion for their work in both the field and the classroom. Teaching 500 Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support students and healthcare workers each month gives them plenty of practice. Several of our students have proudly shared their heroic stories of real-life resuscitation experienced after taking our courses. While working at Starbucks, a man collapsed into cardiac arrest. The barista (FSW radiologic technology student) came around the counter and instantly began high-quality CPR until the ambulance arrived, saving the mans life. Another FSW AHA student successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver on a choking colleague. Recently, a Lee Health nurse recounted a dramatic save of a 2-year-old child drowning victim. There was a commotion when the child was pulled from the bottom of the pool. She ran toward them and immediately started CPR. She was transferred to the hospital and discharged the next day. It was beautiful, and she credits the PALS class that she took at FSW. Learn CPR. It saves lives. DAVIS COLLINS

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe first half of 2016, so its hard to know for sure. But addiction treatment specialists, law enforcement officials and anti-drug advocates in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties say the problem with opioids a class of drugs that includes heroin as well as commonly prescribed painkillers that include fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone and many others continues to grow. The recent spike in overdoses in Southwest Florida is due to drug dealers who have been more frequently cutting heroin with the much stronger yet cheaper fentanyl, doctors and law enforcement officials said. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, so micro amounts can kill, wrote Dr. Aaron Wohl, a physician in Lee Healths Department of Emergency Medicine, who has been on the front lines of treating overdose patients. Even with declining prices, heroin costs about $65,000 per kilogram wholesale, whereas illicit fentanyl is available at roughly $3,500 per kilogram. Drug dealers thus face strong incentives to mix fentanyl with heroin and other street drugs. Those other drugs include cocaine, as well as counterfeit brand-name pills such as OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin and Xanax. Across the United States, drug overdose deaths have killed more than half a million people since 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, with more than six in 10 deaths involving an opioid. In 2015, about 91 people per day died of an opioid overdose in the U.S., with the highest rates of death in West Virginia and New Hampshire. In Florida in recent years, Palm Beach County has become the epicenter of the crisis, with 296 deaths caused by heroin, morphine and fentanyl in 2015, a more than 500 percent increase from 2012. Experts believe deaths attributed to morphine are in many cases heroin since morphine isnt prescribed at a high enough rate to be the cause, and heroin is metabolized to morphine in the body. Deaths due to those three drugs have spiked across Charlotte, Collier, and especially Lee County during that time as well. Opioids are the drug of choice for almost eight in 10 people admitted in 2016 and 2017 to SalusCare, a Fort Myers-based nonprofit detox and behavioral health treatment center with seven locations. And most are shooting up heroin, said Janet Michael, acute care nurse manager for SalusCares detox facility. Thats opposed to 2012, when oxycodone pills were the most common way to take opioids among patients. Pretty much what happened is they did shut down the prescription medication (with Floridas legal system targeting doctors who over-prescribed it) but it changed the drug of choice, she said. We started seeing a lot of Dilaudid use at that time. I know you can see when you talk to the hospitals and other providers right now, IV heroin is just epidemic, thats what were seeing now. And weve been seeing it for a couple years. Ms. Michael read from her survey of patients admitted on July 21, a typical day, she said: out of 29 people admitted so far that day, 23 primarily used opioids and 18 of those were shooting heroin. Ones drug of choice was methadone, two Dilaudid, and two oxycodone. She added that patients were usually not using just one drug. In addition to the drug of choice, she read from the list of drugs used by admitted patients. One was heroin and cocaine, another heroin and Xanax, another heroin, cocaine and alcohol. Ms. Michael said many patients tend to be fairly young. Theyre in their 20s to early, mid-30s. There was also a pregnant woman that day who was detoxing, Ms. Michael said, before hopefully completing SalusCares 28-day rehab program. Her child would also likely need to be treated for neonatal abstinence syndrome. Thats not unusual for us, she said. We get them in occasionally. There were more people asking to be admitted that day than there were beds available, room enough for 31 people. I could probably fill these beds twice today, she said. Those who did not get a bed were referred to other treatment facilities in Southwest Florida, such as Charlotte Behavioral Health Care or David Lawrence Center. Kari-Anne Spiller, a 31-year-old who is nearing seven years clean, has also seen the effects of this emergency first hand. Ms. Spiller runs The Surrender House Recovery Residence, a group of seven transitional sober-living houses in Lee County, where she said opioids are the drug of choice for eight in 10 residents. We want to shed light that there is hope, she said. That may come partly from outside efforts to stem the crisis. Florida Gov. Rick Scott in May declared the opioid epidemic a Public Health Emergency, bringing in $54.3 million in federal funding over two years for prevention, treatment and recovery services, and adding harsher prison sentences for people in possession of four grams or more of fentanyl. Other efforts include educating communities on the addictive and deadly potential of opioids and how people can get help; a combination of medicine and behavioral therapy to treat addicts; and the use of naloxone (brand name Narcan), an injection or nasal spray that has been used with a high level of success, saving thousands of lives by shutting down the effects of opioids in someone who is overdosing. But Ms. Spiller and others point out that focusing on specific drugs is only scratching at the surface of a problem that begins with addiction. Any long-term success in overcoming it, nearly any addict in recovery will tell you, is a process that must come first from themselves, a personal realization and commitment to breaking down the scaffolding that supports destructive drug use and replacing it with a different support system, a new normal, a full life. Boy, that bliss, said Brenda Iliff, executive director of Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, a nonprofit drug treatment center in Naples and a recovered addict, describing what drugs can provide. That spiritual bliss, whatever, its pretty highly addictive and so part of recovery is learning other ways to get that calm. It also helps to put addiction in the proper context, as a medical condition for which patients can take responsibility like they might for heart disease or diabetes. We know without question now addiction is a disease of the brain, said Steven Hill, director of residential programs at SalusCare. Twenty years ago addiction was a disease of character. For Ms. Spiller, her addiction troubles started in high school with pills such as Xanax, and escalated to drugs such as cocaine, opioid pills and heroin in college to alleviate the pressures to perform on the basketball court and as a student on track for medical school. Eventually she found herself in and out of jail and detox, and finally homeless. It was all her experiences weighing on her that finally led her to get clean for the long term. And just knowing thats not what I was made to be, she said. Then years of repetition just broke my spirit and it wasnt until that breaking point that I began to change. It had to come from within. She left Miami to get away from the social snares of drug addiction, and got treatment in Southwest Florida with the support of 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Cocaine Anony-OPIOID DEATHFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYIn Cape Coral, Surrender House residence manager Eileen Kappenman, director Kari-Anne Spiller and counselor Adriana Franceschin i.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 NEWS A9 Collier County FloridaOpioid-related deathsLee County Charlotte County Palm Beach CountyDeaths due to heroin and fentanyl rose steeply in Florida from 2013 through the first half of 2016 in the latest records available. State reports also show a rise in deaths caused by morphine. Morphine is metabolized from heroin in the body, leading experts to believe most of those deaths to be heroin-related. Many people who first became addicted to opioid-based prescription medication later switched to heroin for the similar high and cheaper cost. Around 2010 Floridas law enforcement and legal system shut down many of the states pill mills, which supplied much of the prescription drugs one of the deadliest is oxycodone, which was found to have caused 1,516 deaths in 2010.2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 20092010201120122013201420152009201020112012201320142015200920102011201220132014201520092010201120122013201420158 1,185 895 733 705 565 302 122 95 0 400 800 1,200 1,600 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 0 10 20 30 40 50 0 3 6 9 12 15 0 50 100 150 200 Oxycodone Fentanyl Morphine Heroin 1,516201039 0 7 1 31 11 21 7 13 14 4 37 45 19 12 1 0 1 3 2 5 7 7 6 0 0 6 27 14 130 158 48 90 47SOURCE: FLORIDA MEDICAL EXAMINERS COMMISSION REPORTS, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA FROST mous that she said gave her a foundation and some tools to lead a newly sober life. For addicts struggling with opioid addiction in Southwest Florida, getting help is more than ever a matter of life and death because of the potency of the drugs that are available. Many arent aware if a bag of heroin, cocaine or even pills, which could be a genuine prescription or counterfeits, is cut with a dose of too much fentanyl. Law enforcement has found that street drugs have also more recently been mixed with an even more potent version of fentanyl called carfentanil, commonly used as a tranquilizer for large animals such as elephants, making potential overdoses even more likely. SWFL spike in overdosesOfficial drug-death reports from the Florida Medical Examiners Commission show deaths due to heroin and fentanyl rising steeply in Southwest Florida from 2013 through the first half of 2016. Although only one drug is listed as the official cause of death, nearly all those who died had multiple drugs in their systems that could have been a contributing factor, such as alcohol, cocaine, and benzodiazepines like Xanax. More recent figures from Lee Healths four Lee County hospitals show that opioid-related overdoses have increased at a faster rate during each fiscal year since 2013, which begins on Oct. 1. The 607 overdoses in the first seven months of fiscal 2017, October through April, far surpassed previous years. In all, from October 2013 to April 2017, the four hospitals treated 1,765 opioid overdoses. Twenty resulted in death. For the others, they received a life-saving dose of naloxone (Narcan), which reverses the effects of opioids and can be administered as a nasal spray or a shot. The drug is available without a prescription at CVS for $110. David Lawrence Center in Naples offers free vouchers for Narcan nasal spray for loved ones or caregivers of people who are at risk of an overdose by taking a training session on how to use it. People who overdosed on opioids at Lee hospitals were mostly white (96 percent), with a smaller number black (3 percent), Asian, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, or unknown. U.S. Census figures show that Lee Countys population is 87 percent white, 20.5 percent Hispanic or Latino, 9 percent black, 1.7 percent Asian, and .1 percent Hawaiian/Pacific Islander. Fifty-eight percent of those who over-What is an opioid?Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription medication used as painkillers such as oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin), morphine, codeine, fentanyl and others, as well as illicit drugs including heroin. Although they vary widely in strength depending on the drug or mixture of drugs and how they are taken, opioids have similar chemical structures and work in the same way in the body and brain, binding with nerve receptors to relieve pain and also produce a sense of well-being and euphoria. Q&A with Dr. Aaron Wohl Lee Health, Department of Emergency MedicineAn emergency room physician, Dr. Wohl has for years treated patients overdosing from opioids and seen the epidemic first-hand. He answered questions via email in which he discussed the effects of opioids and overdoses at Lee County hospitals and the larger epidemic, and offered some solutions to the problem. Q: Opioid-related overdoses have steadily increased but the jump in overdoses from October 2016 to April 2017 was especially dramatic. What do you attribute that to and do you expect that to continue to rise? A: The answer is simple, fentanyl has been more frequently added to heroin to increase its potency and make a cheaper product. Recent literature states that early in 2015, heroin began to be cut with synthetic fentanyl. The high potency of synthetic fentanyl in the heroin supply as well as in counterfeit pills of OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, and even Xanax, has contributed to more fatal and frequent overdose. Fentanyl is 50-100 times more potent than morphine and so micro amounts can kill. It can rapidly suppress respiration and cause death more quickly than do other opioids. Even with declining prices, heroin costs about $65,000 per kilogram wholesale, whereas illicit fentanyl is available at roughly $3,500 per kilogram. Drug dealers thus face strong incentives to mix fentanyl with heroin and other street drugs. Adding fentanyl to heroin and other street products significantly reduces market prices of illicit opioids while dramatically increasing risk. As fentanyl found its way in to the Southwest Florida heroin supply, and the counterfeit supply of pills, there were more serious dosing errors by the dealers and/or the counterfeiters. Many people who overdose from fentanyl were unaware that they were using the drug. Thus the addict community is not tolerant to dosages of heroin (with fentanyl added) that they had previously been using. Many overdose victims expressed incredulity to the small amount of product they had overdosed on. In early 2017 at least five patients told me that they crashed their car right after they obtained their drug from the dealer because they snorted a small amount while driving. This shows how potent the fentanyl content can be. Normally they would inject a certain known amount (injecting is much more potent than snorting), but now a small bump of product snorted caused them to lose consciousness and crash the car on the way home from their dealers. Q: Will this trend continue? A: Its difficult to say, but many are concerned it will. We are using higher doses of naloxone in the hospital to revive patients and take home naloxone kits will need to meet higher dosages when fentanyl is present. There are some other harm reduction strategies in the community which involves increased access to naloxone, encouraging users not to use alone, and teaching them how to respond if they encounter a likely fentanyl overdose. Anecdotally, I feel as some of the overdose severity might level off a bit as there appears to be a learning curve of sorts with opioid abusers and dealers as to the potency of fentanyl mixed in with the other illicit products. I feel like word is spreading and the users have educated themselves to test the product with much more caution. So possibly overdoses could decline slightly because of increased awareness of fentanyls potency among the addict community. However, that might be an optimistic view point. Fentanyls low production costs and high death toll pose a distinctive challenge that requires a concerted response. This does not only involve our emergency departments of course, we are already beleaguered and overburdened because of poor access to care The basics: What you need to know about opioids SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________SEE OPIOID DEATH, A10 SEE BASICS, A10 WOHL Recent literature states that early in 2015, heroin began to be cut with synthetic fentanyl.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYdosed were men; 42 percent were women. Their average age was 40. The Lee County Sheriffs Office declined an interview for this story, but did send a written statement through its press office: Were obviously aware of this problem and were aggressively addressing it on a daily basis. With new pharmaceutical diversion tactics in place prohibiting the use of pill forms of opioids, street users are turning back to heroin and other street-sold opioids. Unfortunately, heroin is being cut with various levels of fentanyl and carfentanil, which are leading to several overdose deaths. We continue to target anyone suspected of selling all narcotics and have recently made several arrests related to heroin sales. Officers with the Collier County and Charlotte County Sheriffs offices said they are seeing similar trends, though not as severe as in Lee County. The pills have dropped off dramatically, said Lt. John Poling with the Collier Sheriffs Office. We see more heroin and were seeing more cocaine. In Collier, officers began in April using a new mapping system to track overdoses and target the most affected areas for community outreach; there isnt enough information yet to tell if there are hotspots. Officers said that other Florida counties may soon get on board with the system. A detective with the Charlotte Sheriffs Office, who asked that his name not be used because it could hinder investigations, called the problem severe and a current and ever so growing opioid epidemic. The drugs have factored into overdoses for years, he said. But I would say within the last year, more specifically within the last six months in our area it seems to have gotten a little bit more prevalent. Besides mixing fentanyl or carfentanil with heroin and cocaine, he described how dealers might use it to make a counterfeit pill: The issue with fentanyl is you could have very small, minute particles, as small as salt crystals. You could have roughly 10 of those and mix them with some other type of agent like baking soda and you could form a pill with that and stamp it with for instance Dilaudid or any type of current abused narcotic. You could even put a coloring agent into your baking soda to make it appear as if its that particular milligram, as well as pill markings.Before heroin, prescription pillsThese days, Eileen Kappenman is a manager for Surrender House Residences, as well as a resident at one of its soberliving transitional houses in Cape Coral. Over the past few decades she was swept up in the opioid epidemic that has hit other parts of the country and state hard. Like many people who first became addicted to opioid-based prescription medication, Ms. Kappenman later switched to heroin because it produces a similar if more powerful high, but is cheaper than the pills. Ms. Kappenman, now 50, recalled that after running out of a prescription for pain pills after her son was born, she started buying another opioid called Darvocet from her neighbor. The pills made her feel great. I could clean my whole house, cook dinner, be in a good mood, take my kids on bike rides. I could be the greatest mommy. And I just loved how they made me feel in the beginning. Opioids require larger and larger doses to get high, and if you stop taking it you get sick. The miseries of withdrawal are often described as like the flu but much worse, usually lasting three to five days, causing body aches, sweating, chills, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The addiction cost her a good job working for a risk management firm in the medical industry in Vero Beach. In the end, she said, they ruined me spiritually, financially, family, everything. She had moved in with her mom in Lehigh Acres and got clean at David Lawrence Center in Naples. For almost 10 years, she was clean, but points out that the tendency for addiction lies dormant in you. She relapsed after being prescribed opioid medication when she had neck surgery for degenerative disk disease in 2011. This is on me, I have to own this, I should have told them I was an addict, she said. But, I can tell you it was easy to get pills once I got that neck surgery, very easy. When the original prescription ran out, she went to a Southwest Florida pain management clinic and got a script for more. But soon that would run out as well. At the time, Floridas law enforcement and legal system had shut down many of the states so-called pill mills, which had fueled the prescription pill epidemic that peaked in 2010, then began to subside. The deadliest of the pills was oxycodone, which alone was found to be the cause of 1,516 deaths that year, though there are many others. Now, overdose deaths due to opioid medications is much lower but still endemic. Oxycodone was found to cause 565 deaths in Florida in 2015. We do see some pills, way less than we saw years ago, said Mr. Hill of SalusCare. There are always going to be people who choose to sell their prescriptions. When Ms. Kappenmans supply of medication dried up, a fellow addict had already found the next best thing. She said, I know what we can do, Ms. Kappenman said. Its not as expensive and we wont be sick. And it was heroin. Many addicts have turned to heroin since the street market for prescription opioids has become less available and more costly. Its cheaper than the pills but you use more of it and youll do anything to get it, she said. I fell in love with the heroin because it was quick an immediate high instead of waiting for a pill to kick in. With the addition of fentanyl to the mix before Ms. Kappenman got clean near the beginning of November 2015, shes lucky to be alive. Mostly she snorted it, but eventually started to shoot it up as well. If she went hours without it, she started getting sick. Eventually her kids reached out to her sister, who came along with Lee County Sheriffs deputies to the house where she was living with her mom for an intervention. She had to leave the house or else be charged with trespassing, and was taken to detox at SalusCare. It was there that Ms. Kappenman met Ms. Spiller of Surrender House Residences. She holds regular weekly group meetings there. I was scared, Ms. Kappenman said. I was homeless, 48 years old, didnt have anywhere to go. No money, and she let me come in there. One of the first things she noticed about Ms. Spiller and her group was their sense of humor. Just laughing was the biggest thing, she said. They were happy.

There have already been 607 overdoses in the first seven months of fiscal 2017.SOURCE: LEE HEALTHDEATHS DEATHS for many other patients not affected by opioids. Q: What are some solutions to the increase in opioid-related overdoses and death? A: Outpatient access to evidencebased treatment for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) like medically assisted treatment (MAT) such as naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine should be substantially and immediately increased as a public health priority. Action by the nations political and public health leadership is also needed to reduce new cases of prescription opioid-induced OUD (expose less new patients to these powerful drugs). Scientifically grounded policies and clinical practices to promote responsible opioid prescribing are needed, along with research to identify and develop non-addictive alternatives to opioids for treatment of pain. It will take years of sustained and coordinated effort to contain the current opioid epidemic and stem its harmful effects on our community and our society nationally. Q: While there have been more overdoses, the mortality rate has remained relatively low. Is that because the ones who die dont make it into the hospital or some other reason? A: Hard to answer without comparing community opioid death data from overdose as yes, you are correct, the dead are not brought to the hospital. Interestingly, opioid overdose (depending on potency of dose and tolerance of user) also provides many minutes, sometimes an hour or more to be resuscitated if found down or unresponsive. Opioids kill by slowly diminishing ones breathing drive. So as the respirations begin to cease, the brain slowly begins to receive less oxygen. Oftentimes, the patient is still breathing, but much more shallow and infrequently. This means that many people are found in the midst of overdose and there is still time to resuscitate them with the antidote, naloxone. If the patient was found quickly enough, there is oftentimes no permanent damage and the overdose is often times survivable. That is why harm reduction focuses on finding the overdosed patient and administering the antidote as quickly as possible. However, understand that if the patient ingests a large amount of fentanyl, fentanyl is so powerful that it causes a more abrupt cessation of breathing and less time to respond. Thus the reason that fentanyl overdose is so much more fatal. Q: We also noticed that most of the overdoses are Caucasian/white. Why is that? A: This is difficult to know for sure, and a complex question to answer. This has been a long-standing question among addiction experts with many theoretical answers. It can also be a sensitive subject to discuss for fear of being misinterpreted or accused of perpetuating racial stereotypes or bias. See this article for the theories: www.news.vice.com/article/heroinkills-white-people-more-than-anyoneelse-and-nobody-is-sure-why.

In a break with tradition, the new family hauler is bowing to the luxurious side of the legendary 4x4 brand. But to understand why the departure is significant, its important to know what the Discovery represents. This vehicle was born to be a middleman. The first Land Rovers debuted after WWII and were built to be as utilitarian as the Jeep. These Series vehicles (last seen in the U.S. as the Defender line) were great 4x4s but difficult on the highway. The Range Rover came along in the 1970s to be a more comfortable goanywhere vehicle. As these moved upmarket to serve wealthy clientele, there was a large gap in the Land Rover lineup. The Discovery was developed to be the bridge between these two established vehicles. Its design followed the rigid and functional lines seen on the Series III station wagon, but it borrowed the more comfortable chassis from the Range Rover. For its first few generations, the Discovery represented a capable and useful 4x4. With seating for up to seven, it became a popular beefy-looking minivan alternative. And despite gaining a long list of luxury additions along the way, it remained the more affordable sibling to the go-anywhere Range Rover. But with the Defender 4x4 retired, and the Discovery now in the U.S. for nearly a quarter-century, the fifth-generation is taking on a new attitude. A sleek design replaces the boxy utilitarian lines. It shares the headlights, grille and bulldog-like jowl look of the Range Rover Sport. The resemblance may not be accidental considering the Discovery has been switched to the Range Rover and Range Rover Sports unibody construction and 115-inch wheelbase. The new Discovery pays tribute to the ones before it with the thick c-pillar and a step up rear roof section. But it has a smoother profile with more sculpted curves. The sleek design is continued in the rear where the glass and taillights are rounded into a wraparound effect that makes it hard to distinguish where the side ends and the rear begins. Its a very stylistic setup, but Land Rover still remembered to give its new Discovery the off-center license plate housing a feature once necessary with the nowextinct exterior mounted spare.Inside, three rows of supple leather, power adjusting drivers bucket seat, and a center console dominated by a large 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system makes it the most luxurious Discovery ever. This is likely the result of customer input. There were plenty of people who bought this Land Rover in previous years and expected a Range Rover-level of coddling.And the features list is just as long as any premium luxury machine. Adaptive cruise control, 360-degree parking view, three-zone climate control, power folding third row, dual headrest entertainment monitors, and so much more. All these options will push a Discovery from its base price of $50,985 to over $82K, like the HSE Luxury test vehicle seen here. No matter what level of option package is purchased, all trim levels come with the same standard gasoline engine. The 3.0-liter supercharged V6 produces 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Its enough to get the job done, but it also ensures the V8s available in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models remain the top dogs. And because the Discoverys only gasoline engine will never make it a hot rod, it might be worth investigating the diesel motor thats debuting in the U.S. This is only available on the higher trim packages, which means it will cost at least $60K. But the larger 443 lb-ft of torque can be best utilized with off-road features like the full hi/low 4x4 electronic transfer case and adjustable air ride suspension. We have yet to test the diesel, but it seems like the right recipe for a very capable seven-passenger crossover/SUV. The new Discovery continues the tradition of being the full-size gateway 4x4 to the luxurious Range Rover line. And now the styling is buddying up to its more deluxe siblings. Make no mistake, the Discovery carries a premium price tag of its own, but for those who can live without a V8, this feels like the bargain Range Rover. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member Heavy equipment mechanic: Its not a job just for men SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYBethany Clay studied criminal justice at Clewiston High School for all four years, graduated and was well on her way to a career in the field. Then she took a tour of Immokalee Technical Center and the heavy equipment mechanics program. I kind of fell in l ove, she said. HEM, a two-year post-secondary program, is an unexpected choice for girls, Ms. Clay acknowledged. But it was the right choice for her. A few months ago, she became the first female to graduate from the program. I like it because it doesnt just require physical abilities; it requires you to think things through. And youre never going to go to work and do the same thing every day. After the first year of the program, the students apply for a 10-week internship in which the pay ranges from $14 to $17 an hour, Elda Hernandez, career and internship manager at The Immokalee Foundation, explains. Then the students return to complete the second year and earn their Automotive Service Excellence certification, she added. Once completed, job offers are usually $22 an hour or higher. Ms. Clay interned with U.S. Sugar, where she worked on the harvesters, rebuilt a water pump, changed out belts, replaced an elevator chain and rebuilt hydraulic pumps. Emily Trevino recently finished her first year in the HEM program. After aptitude tests showed her she was good at mechanics, she toured Immokalee Technical Center, was impressed and enrolled. Her parents were a bit shocked, she said with a laugh. But they knew I could do it because of the way I grew up on a farm. My brother was always trying to teach me mechanics, but I never took it seriously, she said. And then I took the test and scored really high. He said, See, thats what youre good at. Sometimes she feels as though she has to convince her classmates, who are all male. But the teachers dont treat us any different, Ms. Trevino said. The Immokalee Foundation launched the HEM program in the fall of 2010 under the guidance of Don Fites, a former CEO of Caterpillar Inc. Mr. Fites played a key role in developing the public-private sector collaboration that raised money to create the program. That partnership included the Caterpillar Foundation, Fites Family Charitable Trust, Kelly Foundation Inc., Kelly Tractor and Collier County Public Schools. The HEM program includes practical experience in engine operation, rebuilding diesel engines, hydraulic system testing, heavy equipment fleet maintenance and rebuilding transmissions, along with specialized skills in electronics, such as the use of manufacturers diagnostic tools. HEM offers students who arent bound for college the training for a well-paying job that is in demand. There is a waiting list because many students realize there is a huge call for knowledgeable heavy equipment service techs, Ms. Hernandez said. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Walmart Foundation awards $42,000 grant to the Harry Chapin Food Bank The Harry Chapin Food Bank has received $42,000 from the Walmart Foundation to help fund mobile pantries in the five-county area the food bank serves: Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry. The grant is one of 17 grants made to Florida nonprofits totaling more than $940,000. Walmart is uniquely positioned to help fight hunger here in Florida and create a long-lasting, positive impact in communities across the state, said Monesia Brown, Walmarts state Giving Program Council chair. Supporting local hunger-relief programs is one way in which we are doing just that, helping Florida children and families have access to nutritious food. Mobile pantries are one of the most efficient ways for the Harry Chapin Food Bank to distribute fresh, nutritious food directly to clients, many of whom do not have access to grocery stores due to location or lack of transportation. Mobile pantries are an important part of our strategy to end hunger, especially in outlying areas, said Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the food bank. Walmart is a great partner, and we are very grateful for their generous support for this program. Each mobile pantry distribution can serve up to 250 households. Clients receive an average of 30 to 40 pounds of food. During the last fiscal year, the food bank distributed 1,018,281 pounds of food through 204 mobile pantries. For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2015-16, The Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 20.6 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $34 million, is the equivalent of 17 million meals for people in need. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is recognized as a four-star organization by Charity Navigator, the national nonprofit watchdog organization. The food bank is also a United Way partner agency.

The AFSCMEs grievance cites a collective bargaining agreement with WMU, but university officials counter that the area is rife with poison ivy and other invasive species, which are difficult for humans to remove. The 20-goat crew, rented from Munchers on Hooves in Coldwater, Mich., is ahead of schedule in clearing a 15-acre area.With friends like these Robert Kanoff, 49, celebrated Independence Day in an unusual way: High on drugs, he was dropped off in his birthday suit at a Tempe, Ariz., Walmart by two people who thought it would be funny to see him naked, said police. There he walked around the store wearing only shoes and carrying methamphetamines. Maricopa County sheriffs officers caught up with him around 10 p.m. across the street from the store.The entrepreneurial spiritFirst bikes, then cars ... now umbrellas. Maybe. Sharing E Umbrella hit the streets of 11 Chinese cities in April with more than 300,000 umbrellas for rent from subway and bus stations. Unfortunately, the companys founder, Zhao Shuping, didnt provide instructions about returning the rentals after use, and most of the umbrellas have disappeared. Zhao noted his mistake, saying, Umbrellas are different from bicycles. ... With an umbrella you need railings or a fence to hang it on. He plans to replenish his stock with 30 million umbrellas nationwide by the end of the year.Questionable judgmentsThe Do Son Buffalo Fighting Festival, in which water buffalo are pitted against each other, has been a tradition in Hai Phong, Vietnam, since the 18th century. But on July 1, buffalo trainer Dinh Xuan Huong, 46, met his doom when his own bull turned on him. The buffalo first knocked Dinh to the ground, then flipped him over its head, goring Dinhs leg with its horn. Dinh later died at the Vietnam-Czech Friendship Hospital. Buffalo fighting was stopped in the country during the Vietnam War, but the fights resumed in 1990.Under the influence Police in Slidell, La., stopped a car full of drunks on July 8 and arrested the driver for driving while intoxicated. The cars passengers rode home in a taxi, but one of the women then drove back to the police station to bail out the driver. Slidell officers arrested the woman for DWI, and she joined her friend in jail. Lesson of the day, Slidell officers posted on their Facebook page: Dont drive drunk to a police station in order to bail out your drunk friend! Police in Swansea, Ill., suspect the heir to a brewery fortune has graduated from driving drunk to flying high. August Adolphus Busch IV, 53, landed his helicopter around noon on July 10 in an office complex parking lot outside St. Louis. Police and FAA investigators were still trying to determine why he had landed there and whether any aviation laws had been broken when they were called back to the parking lot around 8 p.m., where Busch, appearing to be intoxicated, was trying unsuccessfully to take off. Swansea police reported that Busch failed field sobriety tests but passed a breath test, and after they secured a warrant, Busch was taken to a local hospital for blood tests. (Also found in the helicopter: four loaded guns, several prescription pill bottles and eight dogs.) At press time, no charges had been filed. Lacking a filterBaseball fans at the Los Angeles Dodgers-Kansas City Royals game in Dodger Stadium on July 8 were treated to some righteous moves on the dance cam by Rally Granny, an older fan who capped her performance by flashing her bra at the 40,000-plus spectators. You dont see THAT much at a baseball stadium, deadpanned Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger (who actually missed the spectacle).From bad to worseTwo women in Arlington, Texas, called police for help on July 10 as a mentally ill man doused himself with gasoline in preparation to commit suicide. When responding officers began talking with the distraught man, he poured more gasoline on himself and appeared to be holding a lighter in his hand. Hoping to subdue him, one of the officers used his Taser on the man and the gasoline ignited, engulfing him in flames. Officers wrapped him in blankets and removed him from the house. His family reports he was severely burned, and at press time he was in critical condition. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

At a site that charges perperson fees, pass holders can bring along three other adults for free. The first senior pass price increase will raise revenue to enhance the visitor experience in refuges and parks, where recent federal budget cuts have meant diminished staff and services. At Ding Darling alone, staff has been slashed in half during the past decade, according to a statement from the Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge. Seniors can still opt to buy an annual pass for $20. Those who purchase an annual pass for four straight years can convert that pass to a lifetime senior pass. Even with the 700 percent price increase, the lifetime pass is still quite a bargain: Single park-admission fees to the most popular sites which include the Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains and Yosemite national parks can run as much as $30. If a senior visits three of the $30 parks, she or he has already saved money, NPS spokesperson Kathy Kupper told AARP last month. Plus, the pass allows those traveling with seniors to enter the park with them. In late 2016, Congress approved the National Park Service Centennial Act, legislation that raised fees and set up an endowment to help pay for projects and visitor services. Passes are non-refundable and nontransferable and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. If lost or stolen, a new pass will need to be purchased. For more information, call 888-2758747, option 3, or visit www.nps.gov/ planyourvisit/passes. PASSFrom page 1There are more manatees and sea turtles in Florida than in any other state. More than 6,000 manatees swim in our coastal waters, rivers and freshwater springs, and thousands of sea turtles nest and hatch on our Atlantic and gulf coast beaches. Its easy to show support for these iconic Florida species by sticking on a decal. Every year the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals that can be acquired with a $5 donation when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat at your local tax collectors office. New and previously issued decals are also available for purchase online at www.myfwc.com. Decals generate funding for research, rescue and management efforts that help Floridas manatees and sea turtles survive. For instance, when someone calls the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff responds with efforts to rescue and rehabilitate the animal. The decals also address important conservation issues: Look out for manatees is the message on the new manatee decal, which shows boaters in the distance as a manatee mother and calf swim along with only her back above water. Even though mature manatees grow to 1,000 pounds or more, they can be difficult to see when theyre swimming, grazing or resting underwater. Wear polarized sunglasses, and then watch and listen carefully to detect the signs of manatees nearby. Look for circles on the waters surface indicating their underwater movement and snouts sticking out of the water as they surface to breathe. You might also hear huffing noises when they come up for air. Helping sea turtles survive is the message on the new sea turtle decal, which shows a green sea turtle. Green sea turtles nest on Floridas Atlantic and gulf coast beaches, and until recently were classified as endangered. Now after years of conservation efforts, the species has been reclassified as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. Thats a major step in green recovery. Remember, hands off is the best policy for beachgoers encountering any species of nesting or hatchling sea turtles. Watch from a distance, do not disturb them and never use a cell phone or camera to shoot flash photos. Learn about other ways to help conserve manatees and sea turtles at www.MyFWC.com/Manatee and www. MyFWC.com/SeaTurtle, where you also can click on Decals to order new or past editions of decals.

Our hope is that some of those who learn from us here might stay and care for all of us here. Teaching/learning occurs at the bedside, in nurses stations and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday when our medical residents meet for almost two hours to present interesting patient cases and discuss other relevant medical topics. Discussions are led by our new chief resident, Dr. Rachel Pyngolil, who just finished Brown Universitys three-year medical residency, and also by 63 NCH attending staff physicians who are following their passion for medical education. A recent session I attended began with a review by resident Dr. Zakia Rauf on the significance of heart sounds. Nicely researched and beautifully explained, it will be remembered by everyone as they lay a stethoscope over the heart. Next came resident Dr. Lesly Silvas presentation of a patient with a very unusual illness, an insulinoma. This rare and difficult-todiagnose condition occurs in fewer than one in 250,000 people. Talk about a one-in-a-million chance of seeing this condition so early in Dr. Silvas training as only her second patient. Dr. Silva shared the patients history with built-in pauses so that her colleagues could share questions they might ask if they were taking a history. The same Socratic method was employed with the presentation of physical findings, lab results and treatment options. During the discussion endocrinologist Jim Bernene, medical director of our Department SEE WEISS, A23 Biosensors: Whats your body trying to tell you? SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNational Institutes of HealthYour body alerts you to many aspects of your health. Your stomach growling tells you when to eat. A powerful yawn lets you know youre tired. Your body gives off many other valuable signals but requires technology to detect them. Scientists are looking for new ways to track and use your bodys signals to improve your health and manage disease. Physical activity trackers and step counters are now helping people develop and maintain healthy habits. These devices have also opened doors for people to participate in health research. Now, researchers are designing more advanced devices called biosensors that measure biological, chemical and physical signs of health. The variety of biosensors used by researchers, clinicians and people from every walk of life is growing, says Dr. eila Selimovi, a biosensors expert at the National Institutes of Health. Some speed up test results so treatments can be started promptly. Others provide the benefits of continuous monitoring of health conditions. (Biosensors) function in fascinating ways. (They use) chemical attraction, electrical currents, light-detection systems and compact wireless-sensing technologies. The mercury thermometer is one of the earliest biosensor technologies used in medicine. In modern thermometers, mercury has been replaced by safer temperature-sensitive probes. But the goal is still the same: to detect changes in your body temperature. Another common biosensor used at home is the pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests use color-changing strips to detect pregnancy hormones in urine. Pregnancy tests are still done in doctors offices. But the home test has become a reliable alternative since it was first introduced more than 40 years ago. The rapid strep test is another commonly used biosensor. If you have a sore throat, your doctor may want to use one to test for bacteria called streptococci. The rapid strep test can provide results from a swab of the back of your throat in a few minutes with 95 percent accuracy. Your doctor may still send a throat swab to a lab to confirm a positive test result. But he can use the rapid test results to start treatment immediately. In parts of the world where public health care isnt readily available, researchers hope to introduce rapid tests for people living in remote regions to test for infections such influenza, HIV and hepatitis C. New biosensor technologies can now be combined with smart phone cameras and wireless signaling. These advances make health tests more portable and affordable than lab-based equipment. Biosensors can also be used to continuously monitor a health condition. Blood-oxygen monitors are now found throughout hospitals and in patients homes. These devices detect changes in the level of oxygen in the bloodstream. A rapid drop in oxygen can cause brain injury and requires quick medical attention. Blood oxygen monitors are ideal for people with lung and heart conditions, those undergoing anesthesia, or those being treated in intensive, neonatal or emergency care. Other biosensors can be used to continuously monitor your blood sugar levels (for managing diabetes), blood pressure or heart rate. Flexible sensors are making even more types of monitoring possible. A team of engineers, led by Dr. Patrick Mercier and Dr. Joseph Wang at the University of California San Diego, is developing a flexible sensor that measures blood alcohol levels. It looks like a temporary tattoo. The sensor releases a sweat-promoting chemical into the skin and detects alcohol in the sweat. The sensor then sends the information wirelessly to a laptop or mobile device. Similar devices are being developed by other groups to monitor cystic fibrosis and other diseases and conditions. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com SEE BIOSENSOR, A23

CALL NOW TO EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE! Welcome! WEISSFrom page 22of Medical Education and a Master of the American College of Physicians (an accomplishment limited to a very few top academic internists), shared pertinent questions and observations that contributed richly to the learning environment. Resident Jason Smith, a third-year UCF medical student, shared an overview of the related literature, another important aspect of training. Radiologist Yash Jadhav then reviewed how to read a CT of the chest and abdomen as everyone searched carefully for the insulinoma in the image of the pancreas. The use of our interactive smartboard, which projects images and computer graphics and can also be written on, reminded us how technology has changed the traditional blackboard in remarkable ways. Also participating was Dr. Charles Graeber, director of the NCH residency program, and some of our senior physician educators who are now Mayo School of Medicine faculty, among them Drs. Hermes Koop, David Linz, Carlos Quintero and our newest academic hospitalist, Brian Pulford. Another way NCH residents learn is during Grand Rounds, an engaging forum convened at 7:30 a.m. every Thursday in the Telford Auditorium on the downtown Baker campus and broadcast to the North Naples campus. It attracts interested physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and supporting colleagues. At a recent Grand Rounds, oncologist Michele Ramirez thoughtfully discussed a patient with amyloidosis, another interesting diagnostic challenge. A famous clinical aphorism is, When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras, meaning commonly occurring illnesses are more likely to be the diagnosis. However, as Dr. Ramirez sagely suggested, our patient was a zebra in plain sight. She proceeded to share an erudite overview of amyloidosis that served as a great review and reminder for everyone from our new residents to our senior clinicians. Teaching, learning, challenging, stimulating and refreshing our clinicians and caregivers in an academic setting combine to make for a savvy and smarter medical community, resulting in everyone living a longer, happier and healthier life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. At the University of Minnesota, a group of researchers led by Dr. Michael McAlpine has developed inks for 3D printing sensors that are flexible, stretchable, and sensitive. These sensors can be used to detect human movements, such as flexing a finger. They can be printed directly onto skin and used to detect body signals, like a pulse. They can also detect chemicals in the environment and be used to warn of hazards. NIH also supports research to use sensors to gather data about environmental and other factors involved in childhood asthma. These sensor systems monitor what children are exposed to and their bodies reactions. For example, Dr. Zhenyu Li, a biomedical engineer at George Washington University, is developing a sensor that can be worn on a childs wrist to detect formaldehyde, an air pollutant that can trigger asthma. Researchers dont have tools at the moment that can monitor environmental triggers, physiological responses and behavior without interrupting normal activities, Dr. Li says. There are many different asthma triggers, he explains. He expects to have a wearable sensor prototype that he and his clinical partners can begin testing with patients. Hes also working on a device that can be placed in a childs home to detect multiple air pollutants, like those found in tobacco smoke and some manufactured wood products, such as flooring and furniture. Biosensors can be placed inside your body as well. Dr. Natalie Wisniewski, a biomedical engineer at a medical device company in San Francisco called Profusa, is developing miniature sensors that can be injected under the skin. These sensors automatically track chemicals in your body without drawing blood. They continuously scan multiple factors at once. Normally, you need to stay in a hospital to have your body chemistry continuously monitored. With this technology, information about the chemicals in your body could be accessed around the clock, from anywhere. Once placed under the skin, such biosensors can last for months to years. They can monitor various body functions through chemical changes. All this information can be collected on a cell phone app and shared with your physician, a caretaker or anyone else you choose. Health sensors have the potential to dramatically improve the way we practice medicine and shift the focus away from reactive treatments to preventive maintenance, Dr. Wisniewski explains. Biosensors are quickly becoming part of our normal health care routines. New sensor technologies are opening avenues to better health. Researchers are working to develop the biosensors of tomorrow. These could provide access to better health in ways we cant yet imagine. BIOSENSORFrom page 22

Public Play Limited Time $40 OFF $20 OFF AM Public Rates PM Public Rates PET TALESParis pup BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThe French dont push pets in strollers. Stares, pointing, odd expressions and sometimes even laughter followed us as we rolled our Top Paw over cobblestoned walkways in Paris and Versailles, our cavalier King Charles spaniel Harper riding in stately splendor. Harper was in a stroller because she was recuperating from heart surgery, but of course onlookers didnt know that. They just thought we were crazy Americans with a spoiled dog. Cultural contrasts between American and European pet owners touch all areas, including acceptance in public places, health care and even potty rules. As a traveler, especially one accompanied by a dog, its fascinating to experience the differences firsthand even when someone stops to tell me that people are laughing at my dog in a stroller. On the plus side, Harper enjoyed dining with us at Chez Michel, one of our favorite Paris restaurants. Even though I had emailed in advance to ensure that she would be welcome there, I was a little hesitant as I walked in to claim our reservation. But the hostess showed us right to our table and brought a bowl of water for Harper. To other diners, she was obviously nothing out of the ordinary; they paid her no attention. At home, when were seated outdoors at restaurants, passersby cant resist stopping to pet her as she mugs for attention. In Paris, she adopted Gallic savoir faire and refrained from trying to visit people at other tables. Some things are the same in France and the U.S. Dogs arent allowed in grocery stores or bakeries, for instance. Usually farmers markets are a non non, as well. But Harper has ridden public transportation in both San Francisco and Paris. In both cities, wellbehaved dogs are permitted on subways, although there is sometimes a requirement for the dog to be in a carrier or to be muzzled. Department stores, boutiques and businesses in both countries may or may not allow dogs, depending on the typical clientele and the attitudes of owners. Parks are a different matter entirely. In the U.S., dogs frequent most grassy, open spaces, or even have parks devoted solely to them. Not so in France. Park areas are strictly for humans, with signs at entrances reading chiens interdit (no dogs allowed). Rare exceptions include Parc Montsouris in the 14th arrondissement, the north end of the Tuileries and the south end of the Luxembourg Gardens. Dogs are expected to do their business in the street, not in park grass. You may have heard that French sidewalks are a minefield of dog poop, but that is less the case these days, thanks to hefty fines for people who dont pick up. Dogs must wear a leash in most public places. Identification is required as well, in the form of a tattoo or microchip. French veterinary hospitals at least the one we went to are much the same as those in the U.S. Pet owners sit with their German shepherds, Labs, Brittanys or cats in the lobby, waiting to be seen. On the walls are posters about parasites, and shelves are filled with bags and cans of name-brand pet foods. Interestingly, some pet food brands are sold in shops that carry nothing else no toys, treats or other pet paraphernalia. Pet boutiques in Paris include BHV La Niche, Moustaches and one known simply as Dog Store. Regardless of differences in laws, culture or philosophy of pet lovers at home and abroad, French and American animal aficionados share one thing in common: Their humans love and dote on them, even if its expressed in different ways.

Glancing around at the items near the register and wondering if I needed a pack of multi-colored emery boards or another lip balm to add to my collection, I happened to notice a blurb on a magazine cover: If you cant love it, eat it, wear it, sleep with it, make peace with it, gain strength from it or find joy in it, then the time has come to let it go. I looked down at the items in my cart and let out a heavy sigh. I keep telling myself I want to live a minimalist lifestyle, and yet I keep bringing new stuff into our condo without removing old stuff. Do I really need all of my diaries from high school? Does my husband truly need all of that ski gear from when he lived in Colorado back in the 1980s? The answer is no and no. And no, I dont need a ninth pair of sparkly flip-flops, either even if they are only $7.99. Ive noticed that holding onto stuff might be a generational thing. An internet search tells me that there are more and more young people embracing the minimalist lifestyle. In fact, a recent piece in The New Yorker profiles Millennials who live and travel like nomads in their do-it-yourself customized vans. Some do it because they dont want to throw away their money on rent, while others take to their vans because they have wanderlust and want to see the country. But most embrace van life because it means they can have only the bare minimum of stuff. My husband and I are far from being Millennials (in fact, our offspring are Millennials), but I have to admit, these 20-somethings many of whom seem to be chronicling their minimalist lifestyles on Instagram make living in a van look very desirable. Surf on over to the Insta and search the hashtag #vanlife (as I write this, there are 1,737,868 posts so far) and youll find happy Millennials cooking on portable grills while their golden retrievers sun themselves just steps away. Youll see couples smiling and posing in front of their vans on the beach while holding surfboards. I found one gram of a long-haired boy playing the ukulele atop his van while his smiling dread-locked girlfriend cuddled a kitten. The common denominator Im finding as I peruse Instagram hashtags (#HomeIsWhereYouParkIt #simple #instatravel #campvibes) is that the majority of van dwellers are incredibly attractive. They all have long, shiny hair; glowing tans; white teeth; meaningful, well-placed tattoos; and theyre all quite slender (the slim factor might be to ensure that they can maneuver about their tiny houses on wheels with more ease). But seriously, most van lifers on Instagram look like they could be runway models. With minimalist living in mind, Todd and I recently attended an RV show, where I was immediately drawn to custom vans and dragged him over to that section. As we tried to pass one another inside one, it was an uncomfortably tight squeeze. Ultimately, we found ourselves in the Winnebago section looking at enormous, 35-foot luxury monstrosities with fancy bathrooms, up to three TVs, kingsized beds and even fireplaces. Most importantly, there was plenty of storage for things like old diaries and ski gear and multiple pairs of flip-flops. Something tells me that if Todd and I do go out on the road, were not going to become instastars on Instagram but, at least well have WiFi and air-conditioning. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

NABOR leader is sold on his new hometown BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentMarty Manion has been a busy man since becoming CEO of the Naples Area Board of Realtors about 18 months ago. On the personal side, there was a move from Pennsylv ania with his wife, finding and purchasing a home in Naples and getting familiar with their new surroundings. Professionally, hes been engrossed with familiarizing himself with and the 6,000-member NABOR and serving its board of directors. But the job is one he was well prepared for thanks to his almost 24 years in association management, which included a solid background in utilizing technology in the field. Prior to joining NABOR, Mr. Manion was executive director of the Pennsylv ania-based American Association of Meat Processors, North Americas largest meat trade organization, for about three years. He had previously spent 21 years with the Pennsylv ania Association of Realtors, joining the organization shortly after college and rising from membership department assistant to membership director, director of information technology and lastly, to heading the associations nonprofit subsidiary that operated local associations on a contractual basis. It was a great organization, he said of the Penn sylv ania organization. I was glad to be there and they gave me a great deal to learn. All in all, a really nice experience that served me very well.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Cold Calls Can BurnPicture it: Youre minding your own business, when the phone rings and someone you dont know starts urging you to invest in something. Thats a cold call, and it can be dangerous. You might be informed that youre among the lucky few to be offered a sure-thing investment. You might even be guaranteed that your money will triple within six months! (Of course, youll be required to Act now!) Dont fall victim to a call like that. Remember that any investment that sounds too good to be true probably is. If it were so lucrative, no one would need to sell it by phone. Promises of high returns with low risk are likely to be broken. Avoid inside tips, because its illegal to pass on or act on material that is inside information. Steer clear of anyone unwilling to provide details in writing. Beware of predicted or guaranteed profits. Stocks that cold callers try to sell are often ones that no one else wants, ones that they need to unload. This applies to initial public offerings (IPOs), too. Shares of IPOs that people are excited about tend to be hard to come by, not aggressively pushed over the phone. You can ask any cold caller to put you on his do not call list. You can also prevent other trusting folks from being conned by turning in any hypesters. Take names and notes during the call, and report anything shady to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) at sec.gov/complaint/select.shtml. The SEC offers excellent guidance on cold-caller restrictions at sec.gov/investor/pubs/coldcall.htm for example, the caller must give his name and the name and contact information for his employer. It offers instructions for getting on the National Do Not Call Registry, too.If youre thinking of investing with a cold caller, think twice or thrice. Check out the regulatory background of the salesperson and/or brokerage by visiting finra.org/ brokercheck or calling 800-289-9999.Heres the simplest solution for when youre cold-called: Just hang up. Volcanic AshMany years ago, my husband and I accumulated some money, and he asked me to help him find a good investment. Noting the boom in computers, printers and copiers, I suggested a particular paper company. Because of its timber holdings, the company didnt need to buy pulp, as it had its own source of raw material. We invested our nest egg in it. Shortly after making the investment, the IRS changed the tax rules for valuing timber, and this hurt the company. Then, in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted, and thousands of acres of the companys timber were destroyed. My husband no longer asks my opinion on investments D.D., Silver City, New MexicoThe Fool Responds: Dont be too hard on yourself. Even the best investors regret some investments. It was a mistake, though, to put all your eggs in just one basket, because even terrific companies can fall on hard times. Its best to spread your assets over perhaps 10 to 15 investments or simply to park your money in a broad-market index fund that will instantly have you diversified. You were smart to think about which businesses were booming and had promising futures and to look for adjacent industries that might grow with them. Patience is helpful for investors, too. The company replanted more than 18 million new trees over seven years, and its stock has averaged 7.5 percent annual growth since the eruption. A Pipeline of Potential ProfitsWhen evaluating drug makers as possible investments, its important to check out their pipelines of products in development. It can take a decade or longer for a drug to pass all clinical trials and get approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and many drugs in development never end up approved for sale. Thus, a big pipeline is promising, because its likely that at least some drugs will make it to market. For a hefty pipeline, check out the Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche (NasdaqOTH: RHHBY). It sports about 150 clinical programs in development, including some for combination treatments based on the companys alreadyapproved drugs. Cancer drug Tecentriq, for example, is included in more than a dozen studies in combination with other drugs. Roche also leads its industry with 14 of its drugs in development designated by the FDA as breakthrough therapies with their early stage clinical data suggesting a vast improvement over existing options. Looking beyond 2018, Roche has a potential wave of regulatory filings on the way and could submit 25 drugs for approval. Among the most notable candidates are autoimmune disease drug etrolizumab and two experimental Alzheimers disease drugs. Meanwhile, Roche recently won regulatory approval for multiple sclerosis drug Ocrevus. The drug is expected to generate sales of more than $3 billion. I trace my roots back to 1986 and the Silver King Broadcasting Company, which aimed to boost the Home Shopping Networks viewership by buying television stations. Before various spinoffs, I housed Expedia, Ticketmaster, TripAdvisor and more under my roof. Today, based in New York City, Im a leading media company with many familiar brands, such as HomeAdvisor, Vimeo, Dotdash (formerly About.com), Dictionary.com, The Daily Beast, Investopedia and Match Groups online dating portfolio, which includes Match, Tinder, PlentyOfFish and OkCupid. Some 500 million people visit my sites each month, and I rake in more than $3 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: IAC) High YieldQWhat are high-yield stocks? K.R., Sacramento, CaliforniaATheyre stocks that pay generous dividends, as expressed by their dividend yield. A dividend yield is simply a companys current annual dividend amount divided by its stocks current price. If Fingernail-on-Blackboard Car Alarm Co. (ticker: AIEEEE) pays $2 per year (typically, it would be $0.50 per quarter) and trades for $50 per share, its yield is 4 percent (2 divided by 50 is 0.04).Many solid companies, such as FedEx and Nike, sport low dividend yields. Others, such as Amazon.com, Facebook and Alphabet, pay no dividend at all. Thats not necessarily bad it just suggests that they have better things to do with their money, such as reinvesting it to grow their business. Instead of a dividend, they might deliver relatively rapid stock price appreciation, though thats never guaranteed. Dividends arent guaranteed, either, but with established, growing companies, theyre rather reliable.For a list of promising dividendpaying stocks, try our Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter for free at fool.com/shop/newsletters. ***QCan you explain the significance of tulips in financial history? I gather something interesting happened with them long ago. D.W., Lima, OhioAThere was a tulipmania in Holland in the mid-1600s. Its one of the first documented cases of a speculative investing frenzy, with some people even taking out loans on their homes in order to buy tulip bulbs. Prices soared, with some bulbs eventually valued at more than the cost of a nice house, and then the bubble eventually burst, wiping out many investors.

A28 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.stopps-kidwell.com STOPPS & KIDWELLTAX & ACCOUNTING SERVICES28179 Vanderbilt Drive, Suite 2 Bonita Springs, Florida 34134 email@example.com Want to learn more?CALL US AT 239.992.9299Free Introductory Consultationof the areas companies are small business employing 20 people or fewer. Small businesses in Collier alone are fulfilling 106 defense contracts worth $43 million, said Jace Kentner, director of the countys Business and Economic Development Office. Economic development offices throughout the region have an eye toward attracting more businesses with highpaying jobs and growing their existing economic base the majority of them companies not in the public spotlight. In Collier County, manufacturing positions factor heavily in its future job growth. The arrival of Western Michigan Universitys aviation science program and developable land near the Punta Gorda Airport is expected to drive economic development in Charlotte County as is the proposed development of the first 160 acres in the beleaguered Murdock Village. The five-county region has good economic diversity. Each county has a different flavor, said Eric Berglund, executive director of the Southwest Florida Economic Development Alliance, which also includes Glades and Hendry counties. We have a ton of tech going on in the Bonita-Estero corridor between Lee and Collier. Were popular with foreign firms because of our climate and lifestyle. Tech meets health care is one of the strongest growing industries. Attracting new business is good business, and economic development directors dream about landing the next Hertz a coup for Lee County when Hertz Global Holdings announced in 2013 it was moving its headquarters to Estero.Keeping businesses happyJohn Boland, Lee Countys economic development director, said hes more focused on growing existing companies large and small which added 1,500 jobs during the past 18 months. They include more well-known companies such as Gartner and ACE Hardwares customer care contact center in Fort Myers as well as eMaint, a Bonita Springs software platform for maintenance professionals acquired last fall by Fluke Corp., a global leader in electronic tool tests and software. Our goal is retaining existing companies and encouraging entrepreneurship, said Mr. Boland. We have 20,000 businesses and those are who we want to keep. Lee County has done little to attract new companies, said Mr. Boland. While there are no big announcements like Hertz lingering on the horizon, the county provided 1,484 incentives in the past two years, compared to 1,559 during the previous five. Its an attractive area to do business, he said. We have the best airport, great air quality and a creative workforce and the age keeps dropping. Mr. Bolands office is also devoted to connecting existing businesses with potential clients. In late July, it offered its second annual government contract symposium to help local business owners learn how to land local, county and state contracts. In July moneyrate.com ranked Cape Coral/Fort Myers as the fifth best place for young entrepreneurs followed by Punta Gorda at seven. The results were based on fast-growing populations, a favorable business climate, education levels and the localitys receptiveness to creating opportunities. Collier County and Naples have been singled out by Wallet Hub and Forbes among the top three and four places, respectively, to start a business in Florida and the best city for future job growth. Mr. Kentner strategizes with Mr. Berglund as well as the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerces economic development director to develop synergisms among existing business clusters. Growing current businesses and attracting new ones is fostered by the Naples Accelerator which provides support, funding and networking opportunities and workspace for companies everything but retail and hospitality, he said. Advanced manufacturing is one of the nine core industries Mr. Kentner calls our bread and butter. Arthrex, Structured Medical and other medical device manufacturers have created a need for skilled employees and technical colleges have responded by adding programs to train qualified candidates in as little as nine months. These jobs are in high demand and its a great opportunity for high school graduates, he said. We believe there are many Arthrexes out there getting ready to happen.The international influenceSince the county started targeting overseas businesses in 2013, theres been a lot of interest from several European and Japanese companies, the latter considering Collier and Naples for advanced manufacturing, nanotechnology and 3D printing. These are technologies we want to capture, Mr. Kentner said. The Naples Accelerator allows companies that want to do business in the U.S. to make a soft landing, set up here, make connections to local businesses, create joint ventures and opens a world of opportunity to them. To that end, Mr. Kentner actively courts European prospects, chief among them companies headquartered in France, Germany and England. He often entertains visiting foreign executives, introducing them to local business owners, mom and pop stores and other services in the community. It creates trust, he said. If theyre dealing with Silicone Valley or New York City, they dont get that. We offer a sense of community; they dont feel like a little fish in a big pond. In December, representatives from 25 European companies will journey to Collier County to explore potential business opportunities. All of them are paying their own way. We have at least four projects and very good commitments, Mr. Kentner said. The world is one big market and bringing folks here brings capital and jobs. We have some very healthy projects in the pipeline that will be announced with budget talks coming up. Collier County also has a plethora of software and mobile application developers among the best in the global market. We have the privilege to have companies that are leaders in connectivity, Mr. Kentner said. Our software and app cluster is robust. Its going to grow like gangbusters.Food as businessThe planned fall opening of the Culinary Accelerator in a renovated warehouse at the Immokalee Airport will propel the food production industry by providing a facility for the regions small farms, food scientists and entrepreneurs to prepare, package and distribute products. Its success will eventually lead to expansion at the airport. We will be able to advance 250 existing products to the shelves in stores, said Mr. Kentner. Not only is there a lot of produce grown in Immokalee but there truly some unique and interesting food items the accelerator will give people the opportunity to market and sell. The $1.2 million accelerator will also offer 18-month culinary programs in a full kitchen with commercial-grade equipment and guidance in marketing, licensing and acquiring funding. Three-star Michelin French Chef Christian Le Squer will help with fundraising and taste testing. Hes brilliant at being a chef but hes also a great humanitarian, Mr. Kentner said. If you have a product tasted by the No. 1 chef in France, and arguably the world, and he likes your food, that man is going to do anything to help people be successful. This is going to be a big deal for Immokalee and Collier County. Its going to burst forward with all kinds of unique opportunities and create a subeconomy. Mr. Kentner also predicts significant growth in untapped segments of tourism, saying the county has only scratched the surface on its ecotourism possibilities. He also sees gains in ag-tourism prompted by new craft breweries and distillers and the advent of local businesses like Oakes Market offering ready-to-eat foods. Medical tourism will continue to attract surgery candidates whod rather recover in Naples than Minneapolis. I see very steady growth during the next two years, Mr. Kentner said.Aviation takes off in CharlotteIn Charlotte County, the start of Western Michigan Universitys bachelors program in aviation flight science this fall in partnership with Florida SouthWestern State College will launch an aggressive campaign targeting aviation and aerospace manufacturers, said Lucienne Pears, director of the economic development office. WMU will also bring its healthcare classes to FSW. Its great to have WMU as a partner offering courses for jobs that are in demand locally, she said. Were fortunate in the community to have business and political leadership thinking how to do what it takes to provide everything a business is looking for. We have an appropriate lifestyle, great educational partners and are planning for future infrastructure demands. Were removing barriers to development and eliminating risk to save time for really good business opportunities. Ms. Pears said the county will continue to attract distribution and logistics industries and back office support. Light and advanced manufacturing is always a target, she said. We know were not going to be strong in financial services like Manhattan, Jacksonville or Tampa but we have been wise in planning to reserve an industrial type environment. The recent announcement of the potential $6.8 million sale of 160 acres in Murdock Village, pending county approval, could be the catalyst for getting the much-delayed village off the ground. The $132 million entertainment district project will offer hotels, spas, a convention center, nightclubs, golf, a destination water park and a downtown retail environment. Its expected to create 1,000 jobs during the next six years and generate a $60 million economic impact. Were very happy with this, said Ms. Pears. Its a decent proposal and project and it creates jobs. Its super exciting and we love to make big announcements like this. While no one can predict the future, county economic development officials remain optimist about the coming years. Lee Countys Mr. Boland believes the stock market will drive the economic engine. Every so often it makes a correction, he said. We just dont know. But we do know there are 6,000 job ads in Lee County right now and our employment rate is 3.8. Floridas is 4.3.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 BUSINESS A29 MONEY & INVESTINGCan Buffalo Wild Wings defeat the foul factors causing its stock decline?I think a great first date would be to take someone for wings and see what flavor he or she orders. Does the person go for the mild or the five-alarm fire hot? Does he order the sweet barbecue or the exotic tai garlic? Or is she a middle-of-the-road medium? I think you can tell a lot about a person by the flavor of wings that individual prefers. Unfortunately for Buffalo Wild Wings, there are not enough people taking my advice and going out for a delicious plate of wings lately. In fact, the last few quarters have been miserable for the casual dining company. The company has been battling multiple headwinds and its stock price has been hit hard by the bad news. So what is ailing this restaurant chain and can it rebound from its many problems?BWW first went public in 2003 at $17 a share. At the time, the restaurant had 220 locations, mostly in the heartland of the U.S. During the next decade, BWW capitalized on peoples love of watching live sports, beer and wings and the restaurant experienced explosive growth. By 2015, the company had over 1,000 locations and its share price rose to over $200 per share. The last couple of years, in contrast, have not been kind to the restaurant or its stockholders. Today its stock hovers at around $110 a share. The first cause of this is declining revenue growth rates. Millennials are abandoning casual dining chains and BWW has not been immune from this change in consumer behavior. Young people are gravitating to healthier, less expensive fast casual food or are taking advantage of delivery services like ubereats and are eating at home. This has negatively affected foot traffic at Buffalo Wild Wings locations. Second, higher food costs are hurting BWW. Chicken wing prices have been climbing to historical highs as demand for this food continues to outpace supply. This has directly and dramatically affected the restaurants profitability as it has been unable to pass these higher costs off to its customers. Finally, in attempt to drive more customers to its restaurants, BWW has been forced to offer significant discounts and promotions which has been hurting its margins. For example, halfprice-wings-Tuesdays definitely draws people on the slowest day of the week for the restaurant. However, profitability is hurt when people are just ordering half-priced items, especially as wing prices continue to climb. So what is Buffalo Wild wings doing to improve its profitability and boost its stock price? In its most recent earnings release, the company focused on two areas. First, the company is attempting to steer consumers to its boneless wings compared to traditional chicken wings. These boneless wings are significantly more profitable for the company compared to traditional wings in that they are just a piece of chicken meat that is breaded and fried. However, what does it say about the company when it is attempting to steer customers away from ordering their signature product?Second, the company is now focused on cutting costs where it can, given it cannot control its main costs, chicken wings. So far, it has been unsuccessful even with this strategy as restaurant operating expenses were 110 bps higher quarter over quarter and General and Administrative expenses were 31 percent higher year over year. Given all of these problems, it should be no surprise that BWWs stock has been on the decline. But even after this fall, the stock still trades at a very rich P/E of 26. Therefore, despite my love of its signature products, I would advise staying away from this restaurants stock until it can prove it can control its food and other expenses along with growing its revenue and foot traffic. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com How I explain it is: Ive done many jobs, so I not only know the overall concept of the job, but Ive done it. NABOR has always been well run, he said, so he hasnt made major changes since he assumed the post held for 30 years by his predecessor, Mike Richardson. What Ive done is Ive brought in some more uses of technology, he said, citing as an example the addition of a staff videographer to document events and meetings for live streaming or viewing at a later date. The general workings of the association are pretty much the same as they were before, he added. Its the back-end stuff that Ive been working with to enhance the technology we use to provide those services. Its an exciting for us. Were providing a lot of classes. Our marketing efforts are going through the roof. Our members definitely are getting a sense of what were doing. Theyre attending our classes and utilizing our products and services, too. Mr. Manions duties are all encompassing. While I have good staff and good directors in place, generally what I do is make sure that the association and all the committees and services run well, he said. My job, in a very broad brushstroke, is the finances, the management of the staff and making sure that those services get delivered at the level of excellence this board has come to expect. With his previous experience as a point of reference, Mr. Manion credited NABORs board and members with being extremely proactive and always open to new ideas. The really nice thing about this group is they have great ideas and the funds to make them happen, he added. A lot of groups have great ideas, but then after a few days its, How do I keep the lights on? Our group is financially sound, and every conversation begins with, Is this good for the membership and why? And thats a very satisfying job to be in because you know youre doing good work and people are benefitting from it. The size of NABORS membership, which Mr. Manion said is a large association by any standard and ranks 12th in Florida, helped attract him to the job. The attractiveness was a larger group, more projects and services to work on and a larger staff to work with, he said. It was a well established, well run organization before I got here. I mean, theyre just good business people. They provide great service to the membership. It was a very compelling environment to look at and say, Yes, I definitely want to be part of that. A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Manion earned a bachelors degree in communications from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa. Patti, his wife of 23 years, works in medical records for Florida Cancer Specialists. Since arriving in Southwest Florida, the couple has enjoyed exploring all the area has to offer, which falls in line with one of their favorite hobbies: traveling. There are a multitude of things to enjoy about living in the region, he said, including getting to know transplants like themselves who hail from all over the United States and the world. The weather, being near the water, the diversity, so many things to do he said. We have found it to be a very welcoming area.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 released for saleThe 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 openair 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. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRonto creating legacy in Southwest FloridaThe Ronto Group continues to create an impressive legacy within the luxury homebuyer market in Southwest Florida. From TwinEagles country club ambiance, to Naples Squares walkable lifestyle, the Seaglass tower at Bonita Bay, and the gated resort-style Naples Orange Blossom community, Rontos brand of luxury is shaping how people live in one of the worlds most desirable locales. A new project on Central Avenue in downtown Naples is in development. Ronto was named recipient of the Gold Award for Best Developer in the Naples Daily News 2016 Peoples Choice Awards. When the real estate market collapsed in 2008, growth at TwinEagles subsided. In September 2010, Ronto acquired TwinEagles and began to revitalize the community. Ronto focused on enhancing TwinEagles amenities, enrolling outstanding Preferred Builders, and introducing new product offerings and neighborhoods. Under Rontos leadership, six neighborhoods have sold out, and three new neighborhoods have been introduced. TwinEagles luxury residences range from carriage homes priced from the mid$300s to estate residences priced into the millions. After 28 sales in Rontos first two years, things shifted in 2013 when 65 sales were processed. That was followed by 95 sales in both 2014 and 2015. In 2016, 184 new construction contracts worth $120,844,552 were processed. A tranquil setting, the multi-faceted product offering, and an array of world-class amenities, including two championship golf courses, continue to attract homebuyers. The community was recognized by Boardroom magazine as a Distinguished Emerald Club. A golf membership is included with every newly constructed home at TwinEagles. TwinEagles Talon Golf Course hosted the Chubb Classic PGA Champions Tour in February. The communitys Eagle Course was named Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. In addition to a golf pro shop, the 47,000 square-foot Clubhouse offers an unparalleled dining experience created by the 2015 ACF Presidents Medallion recipient Chef Chas Tatigian. The Clubhouse is complemented by a community swimming pool and fitness center. The complex includes a 2,500-square foot pool with a spa, a zeroentry feature, and a sunning deck. An outdoor lounge, dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are located adjacent to the pool. The 6,430-square foot fitness center includes locker rooms, aerobics and yoga, and an expansive fitness hall. At Naples Square, Ronto embraced the trend toward transforming downtown areas from serving as attractive destinations to places where people are fully engaged in city life. This new form of urbanism presents an opportunity to live in a way that puts every aspect of life within walking distance, including dining, grocery shopping, retail stores, entertainment, theater, healthcare and specialty services. This type of walk-able lifestyle is especially attractive to Baby Boomers and retirees who put a premium on active, healthy living and convenience. Naples Square is being developed by Ronto at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples and has transformed the downtown district. The communitys walk-able lifestyle and the availability of one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces continue to generate strong sales and homebuyer traffic. Phase I is sold, Phase II is nearly sold out and Phase III purchase agreements worth nearly $30 million have been processed. Ronto expects to start Phase III construction in fourth quarter of this year. Ronto has announced plans for the Shoppes at Naples Square are being developed. The project offer a combination of retail and restaurant space to be developed on the eastern edge of Naples Square. Ronto anticipates retail openings in 2019. Gulfshore Playhouse is poised to close on its purchase of a three-acre tract within Naples Square in mid-August and is developing plans for the construction of a multimillion-dollar 56,000 square feet complex with two theaters and an education wing. The complex will serve as an anchor for the Shoppes at Naples Square. With nearly $135 million in sales processed and construction scheduled for completion in 11 months, sales continue to expand at Rontos 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower. With the buildings tower floor plans, Bonita Bay Club membership opportunities, and amenities that include a 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center, five championship golf courses, formal and informal dining, a full-service marina, hiking trails, a tennis complex, and a residents-only private beach park, Seaglass is redefining the high-rise living experience. A selection of tower residences remains available. The Seaglass tower will feature fullycompleted, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access underbuilding parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three tower residence great room floor plans range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and are priced from just over $1 million. The tower residences will include dual private elevator foyers, island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, walk-in closets, and sliders opening to outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Naples Orange Blossom at 1948 Oil Well Road offers an affordable resort lifestyle with amenities including a new Community Center with a fitness center and catering kitchen, swimming pools, a spa, hammocks, a shade pavilion, cabanas, beach chairs, tennis courts, sand volleyball, bocce ball, and basketball courts.

The show is on display Aug. 3-29, with an opening reception set for 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8. The mature artists represented in Over 80, Under 30 were around when the Hindenburg airship burst into flames in 1937 and when Amelia Earhart disappeared. They remember when the Golden Gate Bridge opened and when Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs first appeared in movie houses. The exhibits emerging artists experienced epic Nickelodeon episodes and probably collected Beanie Babies, Pokemon cards and CD singles. When they were older, they started their social media journey with a Myspace profile. In the centers main Lauritzen and Rush galleries, visitors can admire works by Alyssa Baladad, Tanner Castle and Caitliin RosolenDe Jesus (under 30) and Marian Miller, William Ward Moseley and Edythe Newbourne (over 80). Here are some excerpts from their artist statements: Art is an expression of feeling, be it whatever medium is used.

Capitalizing on the publics love of the big screen, local arts organizations have grown film festivals that celebrate the ritual of cinema to screen films that are small, independent and occasionally quirky, much to the delight of local cinemaphiles. Fort Myers Film FestivalKicking off movie season this year is Fort Myers Film Festivals Thank God for Indie Mondays, or T.G.I.M. for short, a popular screening event that allows the uninitiated to gain insight into how the organization chooses films for its annual spring festival. Using cocktails, live music and a heavy dose of camaraderie and comedy, organizers invite the public to view a grab bag of undisclosed short films the first Monday of each month leading up to the big show, scheduled for Thursday through Monday, March 21-25. The first T.G.I.M. party takes place Monday, Aug. 7, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Its a community coming together to discuss not just film, but the effects of film and why its important. We talk about everything, brutally and bluntly, said festival founder and executive director Eric Raddatz, who is also presentation editor of Florida Weekly. All T.G.I.M. films are under consideration for the festival, he added. If they make the grade, we make them part of the official programming. Though FMFF organizers screen a wide variety of movies, from full-length features and documentaries to student films, emphasis the last few years has turned to local filmmakers and topics that that resonate with Southwest Floridians. For example, the 2017 festival opened with Black Tide, a documentary by former Sanibel Island resident Steven Johnson about Lee Countys ongoing environmental crisis caused by The U.S. Army of Engineers alleged mismanagement of Lake Okeechobee. Another favorite was the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award winner Alive Inside, another documentary that chronicles the link music creates between Alzheimers disease patients and the outside world. I think we played it third in the nation after Sundance, Mr. Raddatz said of Alive Inside. Southwest Florida is ground zero for Alzheimers patients, and it was such a heartfelt film. While its not a loudly celebrated craft in Southwest Florida, filmmaking is an undercurrent that bubbles beneath the mainstream arts scene in the region. The people who do it are passionate and committed to their art, creating fantastic cinematic opportunities for residents to learn more about their environment and their neighbors, Mr. Raddatz said. Because Florida no longer offers enticing tax break packages to filmmakers and hence has lost billions of dollars of revenue from Hollywood filmmakers who put their money and time into making locally driven movies are creating the some of the best work the festival has seen the last few years. Theyre still independent. Theyre still filmmakers who are running and gunning and who love the area, Mr. Raddatz said. It may be a side job, but theyre looking to make it more of a fulltime profession and like to concentrate on issues that are relevant to our community. Mr. Raddatz and Melissa DeHaven, development director at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, will host this years first T.G.I.M. event. Happy hour begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by screenings of several short film submissions at 7 p.m. Guest judges Tyler Shore, Mercedes Gutierrez and Jason Parrish will Fort Myers leads the way into a new season of film festivalsBY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com GARTH FRANCIS / COURTESY PHOTOIndie filmgoers get to have a say at T.G.I.M. evenings at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.

Theres a camaraderie among people who get it, especially among people who enjoy discussion of issues through the looking glass of film. Youll find points of view that are wide and varied expressed with a sense of respect and understanding, Mr. Raddatz said. Not only that, he added, Its just fun. Theres comedy, theres food and drink, a full bar. It certainly beats happy hour anywhere else.

Naples International Film FestivalAfter years of collaboration, Naples International Film Festival and Artis Naples have merged to continue bringing high quality, independent films to local residents. Organizers are working hard to ensure that the ninth annual festival remains relatively the same experience Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26-29. With the festivals former executive director Shannon Franklin working with ArtisNaples artistic team, audiences can expect a festival that is consistent with the festivities from years past. Were excited to take it on as part of our organization, Jonathan Foerster, communications director for ArtisNaples, said. The NIFF screening committee is working furiously to winnow down this years 450 submissions in categories ranging from feature-length films and documentaries to animated shorts and student works to 50 films for screening at Silverspot Cinema over the course of the festival weekend. Each entry is reviewed by at least three volunteers on the screening committee. Its a lot of movies to screen and we want to make sure we give every film and every filmmaker the attention they deserve for their work, Mr. Foerster said. A lot of manpower and time goes into it. A finalized list of films, a screening schedule and related special programs wont be released until the review processed is finished, but film lovers can still count on the festivals key components: a red carpet kick-off party and opening film screening at Artis Naples on Friday, several screenings at Silverspot Cinema of each selected film through the weekend, and a wrap party with an awards ceremony back at the arts centers Daniels Pavilion. The opening night is great because not only is it always an amazing film (the 2017 opening film is TBA; the 2016 film was Alive and Kicking, a documentary about the culture of swing dancing), its an early season kick-off and an opportunity to come out, have a great time and be surrounded by people who are into the arts and love film, Mr. Foerster said. There are so many opportunities to see great films over those three days, and its stuff youre not going to see anywhere else, even in the age of Netflix and Hulu. Also running at ArtisNaples this coming season are film series led by critic Elaine Newton that examine current releases and a classic films, and a collaboration with Naples Philharmonic in which the orchestra will play the scores of La La Land and Casablanca while the films run on the big screen. People just love to see a film and talk bout it with a friend and enjoy the communal experience go going to the movies, Mr. Foerster said. People are excited about film in general. For more information about NIFF, visit www.naplesfilmfest.com. Bonita Springs International Film Festival As the baby festival on the list, the Bonita Springs International Film Festival returns for its third year Wednesday through Saturday, Jan. 25-28, at Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs headquarters off Bonita Beach Road. While its currently accepting submissions in nine categories, deadlines are approaching and the screening committee will start the review process in late fall. About 70 films will make the cut. We had a lot of great feedback last year from attendees and from filmmakers, said organizer Kathy Saldivar. As with other festivals, organizers pack the event with much more than screenings. In addition to indie films, festival patrons can attend opening night and wrap parties, filmmaking workshops and Q&A sessions with directors, writers and actors. Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs also runs a Monday night film series, Films for Film Lovers, featuring foreign, independent and documentary films. Admission is $10. Coming up this month are The Vanishing (Aug. 7), Women on the Sixth Floor (Aug. 14), Tampopo (Aug. 21) and Sarahs Key (Aug. 28).

One more festival to keep in mind, though its still a long way off: Fort Myers Beach Film Festival is entering its 12th year and is scheduled for Wednesday through Sunday, April 25-28, and will begin accepting submissions in October.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYto the radio, basically. We never use our computers. They dont listen to CDs unless theyre traveling in their car, he e x plains. Mr. Dawson, a fan of Mr. Meinkes poetry, had asked if he could put music to the poets words. Mr. Meinke was very receptive. No one had ever done that before, he says, except for a college student here and there over the years who had strummed a guitar and sung his poems. When Mr. Dawson eventually drove up from Fort Myers to St. Petersburg to meet with the Meinkes and play them the music hed composed, the 82-year-old poet was surprised to hear opera soprano Steffanie Pearce singing his words. It was so different from singing words with a guitar, a totally different version, the poet says. But we liked it. We like the idea of mixing the arts. After all, he adds, his wife has illustrated many of his books with her pen and ink drawings. (Her work has also appeared in The New Yorker, Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines.) Mr. Dawson says he suspected the poet laureate was initially put off by the recording because it was operatic. I dont think he thinks of his poems as high art, like opera, the composer explains. But Steffanie really knows how to deliver his poems, he adds. She is a consummate singer, a world-class opera singer For her to be championing my songs is an extra honor for me. This was a couple of years ago. Since then, the composer has brought baritone Christopher Holloway and concert pianist Richard Bosworth with him on return visits to the Meinkes. Having a baritone sing some of the works puts a different style and different interpretation to the poems, says Mr. Dawson. Its also a contrast with Ms. Pearces singing. In total, Mr. Dawson has set five of Mr. Meinkes poems to music. The world premiere of this song cycle for soprano, baritone and piano will be presented at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, in Beverly Hall at First United Church of Christ in Naples. Ms. Pearce and Mr. Holloway and soprano Nadia Marshall will sing, accompanied by Mr. Bosworth. They will also perform other new vocal music, including songs Mr. Dawson composed from the work of Mexican poets. Mr. Meinke will read some of this work, talk about poetry and sign books. Im not an opera lover, Mr. Meinke confesses. We dont know much about it. He and his family did spend one year in Warsaw, Poland, in the late 1970s, when he was a Fulbright professor of American poetry. It was still communist there, he says. You couldnt get anything except bread, vodka and really cheap opera, like for a dollar. They had a wonderful opera house, as good as the Met. We went all the time to whatever was playing. It was cheap entertainment. They vowed to continue attending opera when they returned to the U.S., but we really didnt pick up on it.Rugged poetry and beginningsWhat attracted me to his poems and made me want to put them to music is his love of words, Mr. Dawson says about Mr. Meinke. Hes an astute poet in that regard. He loves the sound of words and the juxtaposition of words against other words. And his imagery is so creative and so interesting. Hes also a very rugged American. Theres nothing of artifice about his poetry. When I met him, he was just like his poems: What you see is what you get. Composing music for them was pretty easy, because I just let his poetry be my guide, he says. The music comes out as I follow the lines of his poems. Its almost like the music composes itself. I do have to bring some craft to it, obviously, he adds. I make decisions and change things and revise. But it was a relatively easy process, he says. Mr. Meinke grew up in a blue-collar family in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, N.Y., and says he kept his love of poetry a secret while a child. Like every other boy, he wanted to play second base for the Brooklyn Dodgers. But the appeal of words lured him. Id tell my students, I was not precocious. I came out of a blue-collar family. I loved poetry right away and kept it a secret. I came out now and then to show a teacher and get some encouragement. I was so ignorant. Even when I went to college, I didnt know of literary magazines. So he submitted his poems to The Ladies Home Journal and Cosmopolitan, and they were published. Early in his career, he taught high school English, then earned his Ph.D. and taught on the college level. He and his family moved to Florida in 1966, where he founded and became the director of Eckerd Colleges creative writing program, one of the first in the country. Now retired, hes been writer-in-residence at several dozen colleges. Hes written 18 books of poetry and short stories and received numerous awards, including two NEA Fellowships and three prizes from the Poetry Society of America. His first book of short stories, The Piano Tuner, won the 1986 Flannery OConnor Award for Short Fiction. Mr. Meinke was appointed poet laureate of St. Petersburg in 2009, but stepped down to become poet laureate of the state.Language with wingsOne of his roles as poet laureate is to be an ambassador and an advocate for poetry. Poetry has various ways in which it appeals to people, he says, adding that one definition of poetry is the emotional history of the world. A response to poetry frequently is recognition, he says. Someone reads a poem and says, I thought that, but didnt know I knew it, or didnt know how to say it. If more people read poetry, theyd have more experiences like that. Poetry is a different kind of language, he says, but no one can agree exactly what it is. He realizes that its not the bestloved art, especially in the United States. Americans are generally not fond of poetry. Its a little too French-y, or European or intellectual, he says. Were practical, were tough. (Poetry) is something that the elite did, and we know what a lot of Americans think of the elite. Yet, he says, when people feel something important is happening to them, they often turn to poetry even Americans. Ive read that after 9/11 happened, more poems were written in America than any point in our history, he says. Its because at important times in our lives when a baby is born, when we get married, when someone we love dies or a terrible disaster occurs in those special moments, Americans know that prose doesnt cut it, regular language doesnt cut it. Rather than the flat, practical language we live by, he says, poetry is a language we need to express the things that are important to us You need language that has wings of some sort, just the sound of it suddenly the language takes off, and no one agrees what that is. He recognizes that poetry can be challenging (though his own is very accessible.) Its intense, he says, and demands more time than usual. You cant speed-read a poem, he says. You read it slowly, if youre going to get anything from it at all. You dont just read it once; you read it over and over. Poems are written in a denser way, so there are surprises in there. This is true of almost all good poetry: It has secrets buried in there, in the rhythm and in the meaning. Thats another thing poetry does: It gives life; it has a depth that recognizes the depth in our lives. Poetry says we are connected and we do have meaning. And it develops imagination and empathy. Poetry opens your mind to all kinds of differences and surprises, more than any other kind of writing, he says. It would be great for a country to have more people reading poetry, more young people.Poetry is also subversive, he says, which is why so many dictatorial governments have thrown poets in jail or exiled them. The government officials might not understand what theyve written, but they know its not toeing the party line, its not propaganda. Whatever it is, they dont want any of it around, he says. They cant control it. Its subversive. Its not the regular message, its a kind of deep truth that is not controllable.

Its because at important times in our lives when a baby is born, when we get married, when someone we love dies or a terrible disaster occurs in those special moments, Americans know that prose doesnt cut it, regular language doesnt cut it.

Paul T., via emailA: Premiering Wednesday, Aug. 9, on Pop TV, Swedish Dicks centers on Ingmar (Peter Stormare), a washed-up exstuntman-turned-private investigator who pairs up with a Swedish DJ named Axel (played by Johan Glans). Together they set out to solve some of LAs weirdest crimes. Keanu plays Tex, a fellow stuntman whose mysterious death has haunted Ingmar for decades. Series co-star Felisha Cooper, who plays Ingmars daughter, gave me the scoop on this quirky new comedy, revealing about her character: Sarah is a hot-shot lawyer who takes nothing from nobody.

It was a hot June afternoon the day I stopped at my friendly neighborhood Goodwill store. I scoured the shelves and walked the store, then repeated my path in reverse, and there it was: a Delft blue plate. Quality always stands out, and that was the case with this plate, from the deeply saturated blues to the mustardcolored trim around the edge. It was tossed among the housewares a mix of Corelle Livingware and 1970s Japanese stoneware, if I recall. My suspicions that it was something special were confirmed when I turned it over and saw the mark and tags that read De Drie Klokken (Bells) on the back. Another tag also dated the plate, in the Peacock pattern, to between 1671 and 1764. I love Delft blue pottery. Theres something about the crispness of the blue design on the white pottery that is so refreshing.

Paid: $1.99 The Skinny: George Washington could have dined from this plate, which has a design inspired by Chinese and other east Asian motifs. It always astonishes me when something truly special survives the ages and a trip in the bins to the shelves at a place like Goodwill. I saw several near identical examples of my plate priced in the hundreds online my plate is about 9 inches in diameter; theres a 7-inch one on Chairish.com priced at $350. Skinner Auctions sold a 13-inch pair of chargers for just shy of $500. THE FIND:An 18th-century Delft plateSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Delft blue Peacock pattern plate may be more than 300 years old. expensive Export pottery. The city of Delft, in the western Netherlands, became known for the deeply saturated blue of the glaze of its namesake pottery. Today, Delft blue is as synonymous with The Netherlands as tulips and wooden shoes. According to online sources, De Drie Klokken, the workshop that made this plate, was in operation for about 170 years 1670 or 1 until 1841. Delft still is known for its dazzling blue pottery. This plate will be the peacock feather in my cap for the time being. Dare I say it? I do believe I have a Delft touch.

Perhaps the only salve for a declarers bruised ego after such an experience is that it might prevent him from making the same foolish mistake again. Consider the present case where West led a spade against three notrump. Declarer played low from dummy, losing to Easts king, and back came the jack of clubs. Souths queen lost to the king, and Wests club return forced out declarers ace. South had no choice but to tackle diamonds, but when he led the jack, West went up with the ace and returned a club, and the contract went down two. Declarers undoing came on his play from dummy at trick one, when he should have gone up with the ace of spades and established his diamonds by forcing out the ace. This would have assured at least nine tricks one spade, three hearts, four diamonds and a club regardless of how the opposing cards were divided. What can cause a declarer to make such a careless mistake? Mostly, its because players tend to play mechanically in certain situations. In this case, they see the made-to-order spade finesse theyve encountered so many times before, and they take the finesse without giving the matter any additional thought. But since at least for the time being theres no bonus awarded for playing hands quickly, this is not a sensible approach. Anyone who took just a little extra time to consider the play of the hand as a whole before acting would surely find the winning line of play on this deal, as well as many others.

ARTS COMMENTARYArchitects specs: Is it the glasses? About 25 years ago, when Michael Jordan was God, Spike Lee made a series of creative commercials for Nike. As his Mars Blackmon character, hed badger Jordan about what made him such a superlative athlete, asking, Is it the shoes? Is it the shoes? Is it the shoes? I was reminded of those commercials when attending the annual conference of the Florida chapter of the American Institute of Architects in Naples last week. More than 200 architects from around the state were there. And I noted once again that architects who obviously have a great sense of design wear the coolest glasses. Who knows when it began? Maybe it all started with Le Corbusier, a pioneer of modern architecture, whose glasses had thick, round, black plastic frames. And superstar architect I.M. Pei, who has designed such iconic buildings as the steel-and-glass pyramids of the Louvre in Paris, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and the Kennedy Library in Boston, rocks a similar pair of round black glasses at age 100 (though the frames are slightly thinner.) And so did numerous Florida architects at the conference, though some frames were red instead of black. Maybe, for architects, its the glasses. I was tempted to go up to some of them and ask, a la Mars Blackmon, Is it the glasses? It must be the glasses. Is it the glasses? I asked Fort Lauderdale architect Douglas Brinkley, principal of Brinkley Architects, wearing his own pair of Le Corbusier-esque specs, why so many architects wear such stylish glasses. Its their sense of aesthetics, he said, adding that he also has a great collection of sunglasses. Even Fort Myers architect Joyce Owens, president of the Florida AIA and principal of Architecture Joyce Owens, was wearing a similar pair, though hers are red. (She also owns a pair of black plastic ones that look very similar to Le Corbusiers.) Of course, its all in how they see, not in how they look. But damn, they look great.

The story is too complex for its own good, but the action especially one on a stairwell toward the end are excellent. Rated R.Dunkirk (Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh) The brave actions of individuals on land, at sea and in the air during the WWII Battle of Dunkirk are chronicled in director Christopher Nolans (Inception) latest. Its superb filmmaking per usual for Mr. Nolan: Briskly edited, great of use of sound and bold images that immerse you in the action. Rated PG-13.Lost in Paris (Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva) Canadian librarian Fiona (Ms. Gordon) has never left home, but ventures off to Paris after receiving a letter from her aunt (Ms. Riva) asking her to come. 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).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.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.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.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.

As Katherine, a young woman sold into a loveless marriage in 19th century rural England, Ms. Pugh is a revelation, a legit talent who announces her presence with fierce authority. Shes a surefire Oscar contender for Best Actress. Her eminently watchable Katherine begins the film as a subservient waif stuck in a marriage to someone who has no interest in her. She acquiesces to her husbands demands none of them sexual and in doing so isnt allowed to do much of anything. She cant go outside. She has no friends. She cant go to bed when she wants. Shes a kept woman whose happiness is disregarded at every turn; her role is functional rather than necessary, which is a horrible way to live. Its only when her husband (Paul Hilton) and father-in-law (Christopher Fairbank) leave for business that she begins to come out of her shell. She chats with her maid Anna (Naomi Ackie). She drinks more than she ordinarily would. She even sticks up for Anna when the stable boys bully her. She is the woman of the house, after all. Then something unexpected happens. One of the groomsmen for the horses, Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis), piques her interest. She piques his interest, too. A torrid love affair ensues, appearing safe because theres no sign of her husband returning. Youll think you know where the story is headed and youll be correct to an extent. But how it gets there and where it goes afterward you will not see coming. And oh, boy, is it a doozy. Shakespeare fans will be disappointed to know this has nothing to do with the Bards Lady Macbeth, except perhaps for her calculating ways. Rather, writer Alice Birchs screenplay is based on Nikolai Leskovs novel Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, and as I understand, it deviates slightly from the book for optimum cinematic effect. This is a good thing, as it is the filmmakers responsibility to make the best movie they can, not to be as faithful to the source material as possible. Whats remarkable about Ms. Pughs performance is how Katherines character arc feels natural and shocking at the same time. In the beginning, Katherine is hopeless and demure, mindful of her social role and fearful of the consequences of expecting anything else. Shes still appealing, though, as you sense her suppressed personality waiting to come out. As the story evolves, she has numerous awakenings, and as Ms. Pugh shows Katherines passion and desperation to hold onto the only thing shes ever known as happiness, we are enraptured with her performance. For as great as Ms. Pugh is, this movie is also a coming out party for heretofore unknown director William Oldroyd, whose previous work includes only three short films. At 89 minutes Lady Macbeth is on the short side of feature length, but its as long as it needs to be. The dark, dank and depressing aesthetics fit the setting and are appropriate for the harshness of the story. Life is so dull and seemingly cold and uncomfortable, that its no wonder Katherine will do anything to hold on to the few pleasures she knows. For our sake, its a pleasure to watch Lady Macbeth. This is a jolt of dark drama in the midst of mainstream summer, and a welcome sight at that. The film industry had better be warned: Hell hath no fury like Florence Pugh. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com Did you know?>> Nikolai Leskovs 1865 novel on which this lm was based, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, was also adapted into a 1934 Russian opera with the same name. Stalin allegedly hated it.

OffKidzAct teens bring beloved Roald Dahl tale to lifeSet sail with an orphan boy and his insect friends on an amazing journey across the ocean on a giant piece of fruit when The Naples Players KidzAct troupe presents James and the Giant Peach Jr. The delightfully offbeat musical adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure tale takes the stage Friday through Sunday, Aug. 11-13, in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. Behind its wit and whimsy, James and the Giant Peach Jr. explores some sophisticated themes. How do we define our family, and how do we start over after a big loss? Craig Price, TNP director of education, says. James is a child put in a remarkable situation, and with the help and support of some new friends he is able to achieve great things. Similarly, these KidzAct students are working together in extraordinary ways to present this musical. Thirty KidzAct actors ages 9-14 have spent the past few weeks working on the production with Mr. Price, choreographer Lauren Raleigh and musical director Lisa Federico. The novels adaptation for the stage is brought to life with music and lyrics by the Tony-nominated songwriters Justin Paul and Benj Pasek and book by Timothy Allen McDonald. James (played by Brian Boland) is a young orphan who finds a loving family in a most peculiar way. Sent by his mean, conniving aunts Spiker (Addison Smith) and Sponge (Christina Young) to chop down their old fruit tree, the boy discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach occupied by some not-so-normal characters. From the center of the gigantic fruit, James and an unlikely crew of insects including a grasshopper (Camden Karen), a spider (Lila Mastro), an earthworm (Jayden Serna) and a centipede (Phillip Hajjar) launch a journey of enormous proportions. Together they discover that while we are all born into a family, we go on to create a family of our own. By the end of the show we all learn a little something about each other and ourselves, Mr. Price says.

Other must-haves at DeRomos are the Cavatelli De Romos sweet sausage and the New York Times-featured Vitello Schantinella with veal medallions, sea scallops, shrimp and a sherry cream sauce served over a luscious risotto. One more thing: Give yourself time to explore the bountiful gourmet market, where a sign notes: A meal without wine is breakfast. Youll find dozens of wines, cheeses, seafood, fresh produce, prepared foods and an entire bakery, including hot pizzas and signature pastries to take home.

Expires 8/31/17. VINOSmall stores, big winesOver the past 20 years or so, Ive noticed a sort of cycle in the world of wine consumption. Specifically, the partial demise of the small neighborhood wine retailer, and the rise of big box stores that stock hundreds (even thousands) of wines. But in the last few years those smaller stores have made a comeback. Thats a good thing, because wine consumers (especially those just starting out) really need the attention and advice of store personnel who know what theyre talking about. And care about their wines and customers. Ive written about such treasures several times in this space, like Peter Rizzos Natural Wines Naples and others. The latest discovery is Punta Gorda Chocolate and Wine, owned by Stephan Herndon and Patti Haley Herndon. Its located in the Herald Court Centre at the north end of town, and its a whole new take on wine enjoyment. First of all, Patti is a Level I Sommelier, so the wine inventory (about 120 labels) is quite interesting. We select great quality wines from smaller vineyards, she says. And we try to get them before theyre rated and the prices go up. I taste everything we offer, and we show our customers wines and varietals theyve never had before. Thats for sure. The selection, which features around 120 wines from well-known regions, also includes several wines from Greece, two Petit Verdots (which is seldom bottled as a single varietal) and even a few from Uruguay. (Dont laugh theyre delicious). Says Patti, we want to make wine approachable and fun. Husband Stephan, who teaches art and design at the North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts, has used his experience as a business consultant to steer the couples enterprise in the right direction. After all, wine and chocolate are a natural pairing, he observes. With our chocolate selection, and our cheese and charcuterie plates, we offer a new and different kind of culinary experience. Customers can order cheese selections and enjoy them at the stores sidewalk caf. They can also purchase a bottle of wine at regular retail, take it outside, and sip and relax. About that different culinary experience Stephan offered me a sample of bitter chocolate bark drizzled with raspberry balsamic reduction. Revelation. The chocolate is made by Patti, who calls it Haley Handcrafted Chocolates, since Haley is her maiden name. Ive been making chocolates for over 20 years, she says, and did it mainly as gifts for my family and friends. Its nice to see more people enjoying them. But the Herndons arent limited to wine and chocolate. They also stock a selection of over 100 craft beers. The Millennials have really made the craft beer market explode, observes Stephan. Hes right. Market research shows that Millennials enthusiasm for these new beers has significantly cut into wine sales. I had to ask one question: why did they decide to locate their store in Punta Gorda? It was a great choice, says Patti. First, of all, weve always dreamed of owning a wine and chocolate store. And second, the merchants association in Punta Gorda has been very helpful and supportive. They wrap their arms around small businesses. The couple is dedicated to offering wines that are not generic. Many large wineries produce wines that are consistent from year to year. They have a house style, Patti notes. Thats fine, but theres nothing distinctive about them. She selects mostly well-known varietals (plus a few surprises, as mentioned above) that have distinctive flavor profiles. It seems to be working. The store has been open for over a year, and the Saturday tastings are well-attended. People are discovering us, says Patti. Besides, we sort of like being the hidden gem in this area. Here are some gems that arent so hidden. Saved Red Blend 2014 ($22) A nice surprise. Dark ruby in the glass with aromas of cedar, dark cherry, and vanilla. Spice and cedar on the palate, supported by mixed dark fruit. WW 90. Saved Magic Maker Ros California 2016 ($13) Pleasing light strawberry color with minerals and peach on the nose. Peach flavors and a slight fizz on the palate. Refreshing. WW 88. Dierberg Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2013 ($44) Medium translucent ruby color that gives off aromas of smoke and bold black fruit. Soft, silky and round, with predominant flavors of black plum. Lovely. WW 91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: What does the word appellation mean? Carl F., BuckinghamA: An appellation is a legally designated winegrowing region. They are often very strictly defined and controlled by a government agency, such as the INAO in France. For example, Napa Valley is an appellation. Within an appellation there are sub-districts, such as Mount Veeder, Oakville, etc. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

But a month ago, in swooped another big Italian restaurant for the pseudoItalianate mall. Divieto Ristorante is an offshoot of a 5-year-old restaurant in the small Miami suburb of Doral. Theres nothing small about Divieto, though, in capacity or gesture. It boasts a big-city, Old World feel, with its checkerboard-tile floor, pressed-tin ceiling and brick kitchen faade. The bustling wait staff wears black and white, including neckties and braces on men and women. The vast, dimly lit space has been subdivided with private areas that can be closed during slower seasons, but theres still a sense of immensity and a high level of clamor even on a Thursday night in July. The lively evening was punctuated by periodic crashes of dishes and silverware, which suggested lingering opening jitters. We didnt expect to be asked if we had reservations when we arrived and had to cool our heels a bit before we were seated next to the bar with a view of the restrooms. Yes, it happens to me, too. Divietos bar prices can reflect bigcity living, too. Yes, Grey Goose is expensive, but $17 for a martini? The wine price points are more reasonable, and my companions sangria ($10) was better than average; the fresh fruit didnt overwhelm or over-sweeten the red wine. We sipped while munching on a single whole-grain roll that was sliced like a loaf of bread. No worries about filling up on too much bread here. The extensive menu can take some time to digest, so we quickly ordered appetizers and set to flipping through the main course sections. Chef Cesar Rodriguez throws in a few curve balls among the Italian-American classics, such as shaved jicama tacos stuffed with surimi. We stuck to more familiar fare, starting with carpaccio di manzo ($13.50) and burrata ($14.25). The former was dramatically served on an oval platter almost as wide as our table and contained a surprising bounty of super-thin slices of raw beef. I counted at least 16, though there may have been more hidden beneath the shower of baby arugula and shavings of mushrooms and Parmesan. A drizzle of white truffle oil added a rich, earthly note. Both appetizers were served with the thinnest focaccia Ive ever seen it almost resembled pita bread. Burrata fresh mozzarella with a cream center is finally catching on in America and its a welcome addition to the Italian-American restaurant experience. Milky and luxuriant, its heaven spread on bread, especially when paired with peppery arugula and juicy cherry tomatoes and garnished with pesto and balsamic glaze, as it is at Divieto. (Though they are rather stingy with the basil sauce.) Honestly, if the average party had those two starters and a glass of wine they could probably call it a meal. But we had more work to do. Our pleasant server was mindful of our progress and my companions allergy to black pepper. Some of the bus staff, though, is a little too eager trying to clear dishes. Theres much to explore when it comes to the main course at Divieto. There are tantalizing thin-crust pizzas, seafood dishes such as lemon-butter seabass and grouper scampi, heartier pork ossobuco and steak offerings and more than a dozen pasta dishes. Some of the classics get unusual twists, such as chicken piccata ($18.50), which had a much creamier, less tangy sauce than is typical. Even if youre accustomed to tart lemon being the dominant taste, this version is worth trying, though a few more capers wouldve added interest to the flavor profile. The generous portion consisted of three breast cutlets, lightly floured and sauted to juicy, tender perfection and mingled with mushrooms and artichokes. A small nest of capellini was served on the side, along with some misfired vegetables; the carrots were almost raw, while the zucchini were overcooked. This was really the only major misstep of the meal, which speaks well for a fairly new restaurant. Our other entree, fiocchi di pera ($18.50) was superb. These are delicate little pasta sheets folded around a filling of pears and mild Italian cheeses into purse-like bundles. The delicious dumplings were dressed with a surprisingly light four-cheese cream sauce and topped with fresh arugula and cherry tomatoes. Candied walnuts were strewn across the plate, adding a flourish of crunch and sweetness. Among the desserts are sumptuously satisfying tiramisu ($7.95), and crostata di mele ($7.95), a rustic puff-pastry tart filled with green apples seasoned with just the right touch of cinnamon. Somehow, we managed to finish both. I guess when a restaurant goes big, as Divieto does, you might as well go along with it and eat big.
