Mr. Jaffe maintains that the standards for which conditions count as diagnosable illnesses have changed so that social misbehaviors, like bullying, now receive more attention and dollars that would be better spent creating treatment programs and services for patients who have more serious FLAMINGO PHOTO COURTESY OF EVERGLADES WONDER GARDENS Iconic Everglades Wonder Gardens Iconic Everglades Wonder Gardens is reinvented into a new attraction, is reinvented into a new attraction, saved by the city of Bonita Springs saved by the city of Bonita Springs IANT REPTILIAN EYES SURVEY NEW IANT REPTILIAN EYES SURVEY NEW arrivals from the rooftop, almost arrivals from the rooftop, almost daring visitors to enter the hisdaring visitors to enter the historic downtown Bonita Springs toric downtown Bonita Springs building shrouded by fencing and flora building shrouded by fencing and flora that prevent any sneak peeks inside.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYIt doesnt have to beThere are two fundamental beliefs in the world: One, the fatalist notion that events are pre-ordained and destiny is a story written long ago to dictate what will come, and two, the belief that what happens doesnt have to be, necessarily. After talking to U.S. Sen. (retired) and former Florida Gov. Bob Graham twice in two days recently, I find myself squarely in the second camp. We arent necessarily captains of our own ship: Mortality, for example, is the inevitable outcome we dont direct. But future events have a great deal to do with actions we take in our personal and public lives now. Sen. Graham convinced me, again. At 80, after 38 years serving Florida in local, regional, state and national offices, hes working his butt off privately to improve the quality of life future Floridians might inherit from us people who will carry out their lives in a world where he no longer draws breath. Hes an ardent champion of Everglades restoration and Floridas water systems. Hes a novelist and the author of non-fiction books explaining clearly how the government works and how to participate in it as a private citizen. Hes the cause celeb of the University of Floridas feted Bob Graham Center for Public Service, and hes a person who knows how to listen. So do I, and I began to hear hope like distant pipes in his conversation, a call-to-arms music to stand and face the storm to take some action, to take some responsibility, to fight back against the cynical, the superstitious, the bigoted, the propagandists, the greedy and the liars for whom facts are stumbling blocks. Its not as hard as it sounds. The heart of the notion that we shape the future (not the stars or something else) is our significant American opportunity to weigh in, with a purpose. After all, Republicans and Democrats alike, the left and the right, tend to love their children. And all of us can get real about helping children and showing them how to help their own, someday. I decided to buy a car that gets 25 miles per gallon of gasoline, not 50; I decided to pay less and buy food that came from China or South America, or from corporate food producers here who loaded it with potential toxins, rather than purchasing local or organic food; I decided I was too busy to register to vote, or on voting day too busy to get to the polls, so I wasnt able to support the political candidate trying to clean up our water faster. I decided to quit talking to family members, friends, colleagues, Facebook friends or bumper-stickered boneheads trucking down the highway in the left lane, going too slow for traffic, because I dont like their politics or their inconsiderate driving styles. None of that had to be. Fate is not in charge of those decisions I made decisions with profound consequences. When communications cease, Sen. Graham said, so does progress. Once in the Capitols Senate dining room in Washington, he remembered, Republicans and Democrats would sit together for lunch chatting and communing, after long mornings debating each other on the Senate floor. When I got to Washington, he added, serious as a judge, many of my best friends were Republicans. That was 1987, after hed already served as governor for eight years, leaving Tallahassee with an unprecedented approval rating of 83 percent of Florida voters. Hed spend the next 16 years or so in the Senate. He sought the presidential nomination as a Democrat in 2003 and 2004, but had to step out after a heart attack and surgery, and a faltering campaign. Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, who won the nomination, considered him for a vice presidential pick Graham would likely have carried Florida for Kerry against George W. Bush but chose John Edwards instead. And lost in Florida, in a very close presidential race. That was not written in the stars, but we live with the consequences. Now, both Republicans and Democrats do everything they can to avoid each other in quiet moments in or out of the Senate dining room in Washington, Sen. Graham says. But it doesnt have to be. I could decide to buy the car with the better gas mileage and drive it a bit less by carpooling, for example. I could stop on the way home at the local farmers market, quit eating meat all the time, and vote for somebody bent on protecting water by getting myself to the polls on election day. I could even decide to talk to that Trumper in his big bumper-stickered pick-up, slowing traffic in the left lane. Hey, You Sonofa But it doesnt have to be. k l a t s t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Sen.

Hutchens C. Bishop, D.D., of New York City who issued the national call to action. He urged the native and the foreign born, and all people united by ties of blood and color, and all who owed allegiance to their maker, to participate in a massive protest. His God was the God of all people and races. It was to be a nonviolent demonstration, a peaceful parade, a powerful dissent unmistakable in its meaning. The Rev. Bishop said Christs spirit needed to be made manifest in the making and execution of the nations laws. He explained why. We march, he said, because, by the grace of God and the force of truth, the dangerous, hampering walls of inhuman injustice must fall. We march because we want our children to live in a better land and enjoy fairer condition than have fallen to our lot. ... We march because we are thoroughly opposed to ...segregation, discrimination disenfranchisement and the host of evils that are being forced upon us. He said he expected resistance and hate. But he was unshakable in his resolve that together, the battle for justice could be won. They would succeed in spite of shallow-brained agitators, scheming pundits and political tricksters who secure a fleeting popularity ... and financial support by promoting the disunion of people who ought to consider themselves as one. This isnt a story taken from the front page of last weeks New York Times. It is a century-old tale about a call-toconscience protest held in New York City on July 28, 1917. Thousands heeded the call. They were of African descent and came together as the pastor entreated, in a massive, peaceful parade. They demanded racial justice and an end to racial violence in America. Just weeks before the protest, brutal race riots in East St. Louis claimed the lives of 40 to 250 black people, murdered in their neighborhoods by white mobs. Lurid, eyewitness accounts described the horrific scenes white Lady Macbeths and their children laughing, cheering and participating in the violence, preying upon the blacks fleeing their burning homes. Their white neighbors left them to die in the streets, burned and literally roasted by the heat of the flames. The year was 1917. The horror wasnt an aberration. Racial violence was endemic in America. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, agreeing with Rev. Bishop, mobilized its membership. The time had come to act. An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people showed up, carrying signs of protest. The women and children led the procession, dressed in white. The men followed, attired in funereal black. At the appointed hour, the parade began, moving forward in total silence. Every footfall, every individual present, stood in witness to the justice of their cause, a demonstration of moral eloquence that required no spoken words. It became known in civil rights history as the Silent Parade. At the time, Florida already had the reputation for being among the worst of the worse in its treatment of blacks. Lynchings of black men and race riots were more common here than almost anywhere else in the nation. The Rosewood massacre in 1921 in Levy County was among the most infamous attacks. A white mob burned the town to the ground. The violence left eight black men and two whites dead. Forty years passed. African-Americans were still marching. But the trickle of dissent begun decades earlier by the Silent Parade had grown into a mighty torrent. Millions of Americans of all races, economic means and religious faiths joined the cause. The movement for social justice found its following and its faith community. Interfaith freedom riders hopped buses and traveled to Tallahassee to challenge segregation in public transportation. Local pastors orchestrated a sevenmonth-long boycott of bus services by black riders. Thirty more years passed. The Florida Legislature asked forgiveness of its statesanctioned sins from the survivors and descendants of the Rosewood Massacre. Florida was the first state in the country to compensate African-Americans for crimes suffered at the hands of a white mob. Another quarter of a century and its 2017. White nationalism is ascendant. It promotes white supremacy as a legitimate pillar of American life. It spews xenophobia, misogyny and racial hatred. The religious right is complicit in its rise. The puritanical backsliders sit in pews of the faith community, certain only they know Gods will. But their brand of Christian theology is deeply compromised by intolerance and bigotry toward any they perceive as unworthy of Gods love. The Rev. Bishop knew these people and the hypocrisy of their faith. They were the same ones who preached and prayed on Sunday and put their hooded robes on Monday, to harass and commit acts of violence against their spiritual brothers and sisters. The Rev. William Barber II, the founder of the Moral Monday movement, warns no American is safe when the morally indefensible is sanctioned by government and condoned by religious heretics. The Rev. Barber warns, only partly joking: Were all colored people now. Leslie Lilly writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy.

People are now literally starving about three-quarters of the population lost weight last year in what once was the fourth-richest country in the world on a per capita basis. A country that has more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia is suffering shortages of basic supplies. Venezuela now totters on the brink of bankruptcy and civil war, in the national catastrophe known as the Bolivarian Revolution. The phrase is the coinage of the late Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, succeeded by current Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro, who has instituted an ongoing self-coup to make his country a one-party state. The Chavezistas have worked from the typical communist playbook of romanticizing the masses while immiserating them. Runaway spending, price controls, nationalization of companies, corruption and the end of the rule of law its been a master class in how to destroy an economy. The result is a sharp, years-long recession, runaway inflation and unsustainable debt. The suffering of ordinary people is staggering, while the thieves and killers who are Chavezista officials have made off with hundreds of billions of dollars. At this rate there will be nothing left to steal. Any government in a democratic country that failed this spectacularly would have been relegated to the dustbin of history long ago. Maduro is getting around this problem by ending Venezuelas democracy. The Chavezistas slipped up a year or two by allowing real elections for the countrys National Assembly, which were swept by the opposition. They then undertook a war against the assembly, stripping it of its powers and culminating in a rigged vote last week to elect a constituent assembly to rewrite the constitution. The goal of Maduros alleged constitutional reforms is to no longer have a constitution worthy of the name. Denied the ordinary means of dissent via the press and elections, the opposition has taken to the streets. Already more than 100 people have been killed in clashes over the past several months. Worse is yet to come. Lacking legitimacy and representing only a fraction of the populace, the Maduro regime will rely on the final backstop of violent suppression. There is no easy remedy to Venezuelas agony. If meditation were the solution, the country never would have gotten to this pass. Endless negotiations between the government and the opposition have gone nowhere. The U.S. needs to use every economic and diplomatic lever to undermine the regime and build an international coalition against it. We should impose more sanctions on specific officials and on the state-run oil company; we should advertise what we know about the details of how Chavezistas park their ill-gotten gains abroad; we should nudge our allies to further isolate the Venezuelan government by pulling ambassadors and breaking diplomatic relations. The hope is that with enough pressure, the regime will crack, and high-level officials will break with Maduro, weakening his position and making a negotiated restoration of democratic rule possible. In the meantime, the Bolivarian Revolution is proceeding according to its sick logic and there will be blood.

Potters pitch in to fill a community need BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comAn even dozen local potters gathered at Clay More Ceramics on a recent Sunday afternoon to throw pots that eventually will be painted and ultimately filled with soup in the Empty Bowls Naples quest to fight hunger in Collier County. Between now and the 12th annual Empty Bowls lunch on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018, more than 3,000 bowls will be handmade and hand-painted to be sold or auctioned at the event in Cambier Park. Area restaurants and chefs donate soups and bread, and the $10 cost of admission (bowl included) lets Empty Bowls Naples support various local organizations that provide food to those in need. The latest throwing day at Clay More Ceramics added 150 soup bowls and 10 auction pieces to the growing inventory. Owner Sara Wilson regularly opens her studio for area potters who lend their time and talent to the cause. Ms. Wilson was joined by Kathy Anderson, Jordan Blankenship, Betsy Dawson, Josh Holbrook, Jennifer Meistrell, John Moon, Brian Piesch, Rinny Ryan, Carol and Philip Stonen and Mary Thompson for the most recent effort. The next step for the bowls is a group painting party hosted by Empty Bowls Naples. Ages 13 and up are welcome to express their artistic side and turn the plain clay vessels into works of art. The next painting parties are from 2-5 p.m. Sunday and 5:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13-14, at Empty Bowls Naples headquarters, 2221 Corporation Blvd. No experience is necessary. Participation is free, and all bowls, paints and brushes are provided (along with helpful artistic hints).

CESAR DE LEONCollier County patients have seen an increase in the cost of prescription medications over the last few years. This rise is made worse by higher insurance deductibles, copays, the Medicare doughnut hole and the large number of uninsured patients. Most patients when they take a new prescription to the pharmacy do not know if it will be free, inexpensive, covered by their health plan, or not covered and so expensive that they choose not to buy it. The care provided by the physician, for as good as it could be, is dependent on the patient being able to afford the prescribed medication. What I find most shocking is that the price of medications is not regulated, even when it could be a lifesaving medication. A clear example of this is on a 30-day supply of a medication used for asthma and rhinitis. Montelukast 10 mg is free at Publix; then prices vary from there, from $4 at Walmart to $131 at Walgreens (according to Walgreens pharmacist Janna L.). This could translate to an expenditure of $1,572 a year for those who do not know it is free at Publix. Other medications are less expensive at Walgreens when compared individually. The prices also vary depending on what side of town patients are buying their medications, even for the same chain pharmacies. Fortunately, a few websites have become involved in creating transparency to this problem, GoodRx, HelpRx and Blink Health among them. Besides providing transparency, these websites also provide discounts or coupons for medications to be purchased from traditional retail pharmacies. These online services are addressing a very real need to educate patients on how to access their medications at affordable prices. Most of us price compare what we are buying against websites like Amazon or eBay; now we can do the same with needed prescription medications. These services function as follows: GoodRx negotiates specific prices with pharmacies for each medication and offers these discounts in the form of free coupons to the patient. Patients must take the printed coupon to the pharmacy of their selection. Blink Health negotiates directly with the manufacturer for a single price for each medication and sells them directly to the patients online to be picked up at a local pharmacy. In Collier County, they have partnered with CVS and Walmart. HelpRx negotiates a specific percentage of discount at one of its 17 participating pharmacy chains. These pharmacies include CVS, Walgreens and Walmart. My experience has been that no pharmacy or service has the lowest or the highest prices. They att empt to lure the patients with one very good price on a single medication and compensate by charging more for others. Sometimes much more. Common pharmacies that I recommend for my patients are Costco, Walmart and the locally owned pharmacies. Of course, when I know that the medications are expensive, I guide them to browse the websites above for discounts or coupons. I also guide them to the manufacturers website as it may contain coupons or financial assistance. I recommend the locally owned pharmacies not only to support the local economy, but because I have found them to be more conscientious with pricing. Some of them even offer free delivery and compounding services. Compound medications are made on site from the raw materials and are offered at a much cheaper price. These medications can be creams, hormones or topical pain medications. A local pharmacy is able to compound the raw material of Cialis and Viagra into a product of equal efficacy. Price transparency is essential with the high cost of medications and with no law to protect patients. Most industrialized nations impose price restrictions and limit what pharmacies can charge for drugs, something that as voters we can ask our politicians to implement. For now, patients must become proactive shoppers of their prescription medications and rely on their physicians to lead them to the most cost-effective pharmacies.

Mr. Barkoukis is responsible for community engagement, fundraising, special events, grant writing and other activities that highlight the education, research and stewardship work conducted by reserve staff. He replaces Gary Lytton, who has retired from the position. The Rookery Bay reserve consists of 110,000 acres from Naples Bay through the Western Everglades. We are delighted to have someone of Athans caliber and experience taking the helm of our organization, said Ray Carroll, president of the Friends of Rookery Bay board. He has a passion for the environment that will help our members, donors and sponsors understand the importance of protecting our estuaries and the land around them. Mr. Carroll added Friends of Rookery Bay is moving into a new phase of expanding its support for the reserves scientists and educators who are dedicated to improving water quality, mitigating invasive plant species, tracking and protecting wildlife, and helping local governments and businesses making informed decisions that impact the Southwest Florida environment. Mr. Barkoukis brings a mix of environmental research and nonprofit management experience to the organization, including tenures at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Green Energy Ohio, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Mote Marine Laboratory. He earned a masters degree in environmental studies from the College of Charleston and a bachelors degree in biology from Colgate University. I am thrilled about returning to Southwest Florida and working with the community to support one of the nations few remaining pristine mangrove estuaries, he said. A highlight of the Friends of Rookery Bay work is the annual Batfish Bash for the Bay. The 2018 signature event is set for Friday, March 16, at the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center. Prescribed burn planned on Rookery Bay Reserve islandsResource management staff at Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve are planning a prescribed burn on spoil islands near Keewaydin Island Saturday through Tuesday, Aug. 12-15. Prescribed fires will commence each day around 9 a.m., as weather permits. Fire or smoke will likely be visible by boaters along the channel from Gordon Pass and Marco Island and in nearshore waters, but should not impede navigation. Residents in the adjacent areas will see and possibly smell smoke. Rookery Bay Reserve staff coordinate burns with the Florida Forest Service and work with partnering land managers and local fire departments to get the job done safely and efficiently. The main purpose of a controlled burn is to reduce fuel loads and manage wildlife habitat. Prescribed burns also help to increase ecosystem diversity while assisting in invasive plant control, Jeff Carter, resource management coordinator of the reserve, said. A major portion of Collier County is comprised of plants that are dependent on fire to maintain species composition and diversity. These species including Florida slash pine, gallberry, saw palmetto and scrub oaks are the same as those that are prone to lightning-strike wildfires. Other benefits of prescribed fire as a land management tool in natural areas include stimulation of food and seed production, invasive plant control and opening areas for wildlife feeding and travel.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYlandmark Everglades Wonder Gardens other birds join the chorus; one even mimics the laugh of a former employee. Not to be outdone, a free-roaming peacock chimes in with his distinct meowmonkey voice. Welcome to old Florida and one of the states oldest surviving roadside attractions. Near death but saved by a community and city that rallied to the rescue. On this July afternoon, heavy rains have subsided and shades of green spanning the full spectrum of greenness cloak the gardens 3.5 acres. A sprinkling of red and yellow blooms adds the exclamation point to the greenery and new blooms seem ready to unfurl any moment. The sun is working to burn off the remaining clouds; water droplets on leaves shimmer in the gaining light. Banyan branches and untamed vines drape overhead, gnarly and twisting on their downward plunge. Guests have returned to the pathways, enjoying the shade provided by a dense botanical canopy. They visit enclosures with turtles, monitor and tegu lizards, gators, boas and birds, many of them former pets. The rain has chased day campers inside to a classroom in the welcome center, where theyre painting leafs and learning about some of the hundreds of plants flourishing throughout the gardens. A nearby room retains the former attractions kitsch, recalling a laboratory frozen in time with its specimen jars of coiled snakes, skulls and skeletons suspended in clear liquid. Also lining the shelves are historical artifacts and other curiosities that have awed visitors since brothers Bill and Lester Piper opened their Reptile Gardens along the new Tamiami Trail in 1936. A small bear and other taxidermy animals join Big Joe, a former resident who at 15.5 feet long was once the supreme ruler of gatordom the largest in the world. The Piper family legacyNestled along the Imperial River, the gardens fern and bromeliad gardens, signature banyan trees and plants (some only seen here in Southwest Florida) create a tropical oasis in the heart of Bonita Springs. A Garden of Eden almost lost to development when third-generation David Piper, Lesters son, listed the property for sale in 2013. He was no longer able to keep up with the maintenance and care of a small menagerie of otters, bears, big cats and other animals, said former Bonita Springs Councilwoman Janet Martin. After two years he had a buyer, a real estate developer anxious to get ahold of riverfront property, she said. But Mr. Piper gave the city an opportunity. We were trying to bring people downtown with our $18 million downtown revitalization, recalled Ms. Martin. How could we let the Wonder Gardens go? The council recognized it really was a draw. It brings people downtown. It was an easy decision. The city council voted unanimously in 2015 to purchase the property for $3.5 million, turning over operations and repayment to the nonprofit Bonita Wonder Gardens, a foundation formed by local Everglades photographer John Brady who Ms. Martin credits as the unsung hero in the gardens next chapter As we develop, we bulldoze everything, Ms. Martin said. He saw potential and a vision beyond just animal in cages. He was leasing the property, pouring money into restoring it and knew any day it could have been sold. Mr. Brady recognized the potential for a destination other than a stinky old zoo. This was a piece of Florida history that was going to be lost, Mr. Brady said. Some people had given up and had no interest in bringing it back to life. They didnt understand the importance of the property. He formed the nonprofit and rallied businesses, residents and the city to the rescue. We inspired folks to step up and get involved. Without the city, the property wouldnt be there. It was Johns idea for reptiles and birds and never again having big panthers or bears in little cage, said Ms. Martin. The Wonder Gardens is known for its gators; there was no reason to bring in large mammals. It was an awesome idea and we ran with it. No one wants a tiny stinky little zoo, Mr. Brady said. Its not ethical and we knew what we were not going to be. People love it because its so approachable. They can push a stroller around and not be worn out.It gets under your skinMs. Martin, who termed out in 2016, was known for her environmental advocacy and served 18 months as the gardens operations manager, focusing on improvements and segueing away from mammals to a rescue sanctuary for birds and reptiles. I worked seven days a week and loved it, she said. It gets under your skin. Its just an awesome place to be. I was amazed during my first year we had 22,000 paying guests. Faced with an aggressive three-year pledge by the nonprofit to repay the city with interest and not enough contributions coming in, Ms. Martin realized there was something she wasnt: a fundraiser. As much as I could tour guests around the gardens and share my love of it, it was a lot harder to raise funds than we thought. It doesnt have the heartstrings attached to it like writing a check for a childrens hospital or a shelter unless people are really impassioned about it. We needed someone with boots on the ground who knows how to raise money, she said. I resigned. It was a hard decision, like cutting off my arms. For the gardens to succeed it wasnt going to be me. I didnt want the gardens to fail. Enter Thomas Hecker, a former botanist with the Naples Botanical Garden and the CEO of the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, who was selected among 122 candidates to guide the next chapter. With a background in environmental studies and horticulture, Mr. Hecker is in his element, his Eden. Hes a plant guy who marvels at the connection between people and plants and stops in the middle of a tour to inspect the installation of more foot-friendly gravel and ponders aloud the fate of a little green heron foraging along the banks of the gator pond. He was born for this. Growing up in Tampa, he had a backyard zoo and aviary. Mr. Hecker also has big ideas. In his office, where jalousie windows and creaking wood underfoot authenticate the age of the building, Mr. Hecker shares a vision of the Wonder Gardens future a poster-sized rendering showing tidy designated areas for a caf, wedding gazebo and Hall of Wonders woven into the tapestry of existing flamingo and gator ponds and gardens. Its new emphasis on environment and education will someday include boat and kayak tours of the Imperial River.GARDENSFrom page 1 STATE ARCHIVES OF FLORIDAAbove: A photo from the 1940s shows Lester and Bill Piper with Queenie at Everglades Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs.

The name was later changed to Everglades Wonder Gardens.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 NEWS A11That vision embraces the Pipers legacy without the mammals. Its a politically correct version of the original roadside attraction; one Mr. Hecker prefers to call a cultural icon. No one wants to see a bear in a small cage. The world was a different place back when the Piper brothers started their little zoo and garden. Tourists were lured by the promise of real live alligators and other animals that slunk through the Florida wilderness. Until a few years ago visitors on a swinging bridge were wowed during gator feedings as the reptiles roiled in the water just feet below as they lunged for food. The bridge posts are still in place and may one day be rebuilt. But that, too, takes funding. Mr. Hecker likes the idea of a zip line over the gator pond and allowing opportunities for gator fishing at an additional charge.Vision for future growsOther ideas flow in a stream of consciousness: a pollination pavilion, walkthrough aviaries and butterfly gardens and a tea and coffee house inside the four 420-square-foot donated French-style solariums. Interacting, thats a memory, he said, noting the park often obliges requests to hold animals. Immersive should be my middle name. A ramshackle space with a painted wooden portrait of one of the Pipers who remarkably resembles Juan Valdez of old TV commercials, could become an event and wedding space and the nearby animal prep kitchen upgraded to serve people. Mr. Hecker also envisions opening the gardens for yoga and other community events and hes intent on growing the gardens aging flamingo flock. Hed like to have 24 but a single bird can cost $5,000. Its his duty to raise money by selling memberships, sourcing grants, sponsorships and philanthropic dollars to help repay the city loan while providing resources for upgrades. Since taking the helm Jan. 3, Mr. Hecker has created a concept book based on his visits to zoos and botanical gardens throughout the world. Additional ideas will be unveiled following a board retreat in September. We have a budget and were going to set our priorities, Mr. Hecker said. One of the inaugural fundraisers is Brew with the Birds, a Sept. 23 event offering samplings of homebrew and craft beers, musical entertainment and food trucks. Today, Ms. Martin visits the gardens with her granddaughters and stops by the koi pond to visit with the fish that once swam in a pond at her house. Many of the birds recognize her, Kiwi still mimics her laugh. Shes pleased with the changes underway. Weve come a long way but we have a long way to go, Mr. Brady said. The future of the park is really exciting. About the only controversy surrounding the Wonder Gardens is fitting it into a category. Mr. Hecker isnt particularly fond of the roadside attraction moniker. Mr. Brady respectfully disagrees. It is a roadside attraction thats been saved, he said. It opened in 1936. We cant forget that but it doesnt have to be what it was. Whatever its called, wherever the future takes it, its the green beating heart of the city, said Mr. Hecker.

NCarter Oosterhouse, TV Host, Carpenter, Lake Michigan Credit Union Member mental illnesses. Were wrapping worthy social issues in mental illness and diverting the funds to them, he says. Theres massive mission creep, which we should replace with mission control. It is the seriously mentally ill who need help the most, he says, adding, From a community standpoint, they are the ones who are likely to be homeless, incarcerated and victimized. What I find is that incremental investments rarely go to the seriously mental ill, but cutbacks do. The result is that schizophrenia patients, for example, end up in a judicial system that is not equipped to treat them or to provide the means to keep them out of jail. Courts and jails have therefore been forced to create shadow treatment programs. According to research Mr. Jaffes organization has gathered, 4 percent of Americans have a mental illness that seriously impedes their ability to provide for their own health and wellbeing. Of that population, 50 percent cannot afford treatment, 16 percent dont know where to go, and about 8 percent say their insurance doesnt cover enough treatment. Mr. Jaffe believes the mental health community itself has isolated patients with severe illnesses and has created a public narrative that claims social stigma prevents people from seeking treatment. He maintains that claim is false and argues that many patients would be willing to enter a program or pursue a medical regimen if they could afford it. The lack of hospital beds is one barrier to treatment, he says. Another is dollars being allocated to places where there isnt a problem such as an outsized portion of suicide prevention funding going to people ages 10-24 when people ages 25-64 are far more likely to suffer suicide. At his NAMI Collier County presentation, Mr. Jaffe will talk about where money should be spent to better assist the mentally ill in their communities. One crisis stabilization bed in a hospital costs $292 a day, whereas the average cost for an emergency room visit in Florida is $2,887, he says. The average annual cost for managing a mental illness is $1,551, and a stay in a state psychiatric hospital is $112,000, he adds. Pamela Baker, executive director of NAMI Collier County, says local officials do the best they can with the small amount of funding they receive to care for the communitys seriously mentally ill population. We have a very small amount of funding compared to other states, she says. We use evidence-based practices as much as possible and thats one of (Mr. Jaffes) points, that we should only use what works. NAMIFrom page 1 NAMI programWho: D.J.

The goal of the countdown is to educate the community on ways to change driving behavior in order to reduce serious bodily injury and fatal crashes involving youth and the general public. The countdown is also a way to remind schoolchildren that they need to think about their own safety, whether theyre on the bus, on the sidewalk, at school or with friends. During the first week of school deputies will be at elementary school student drop-off lines to greet parents and arriving students. Elementary school deputies will also be at the student pick-up lines during dismissal, when parents pick up their child. Also during the first week of school deputies in marked patrol vehicles and in unmarked vehicles with their emergency lights flashing will be parked at school speed zones.

Bright ideasAlana Nicole Donahue, 27, of Springfield, Ore., just wanted to entertain her children and nephew with a joy ride around the neighborhood. But on July 12, as she pulled the kids (ages 2, 4 and 8) behind her Ford Taurus in a plastic red wagon, she was arrested for reckless endangerment. Donahue told police she was just showing the kids a good time. However, horrified witnesses saw the car going about 30 mph as the wagon went up on two wheels going around a busy traffic circle at rush hourUnclear on the conceptDavid Blackmon identified himself as a drug dealer when he called the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office on July 16 to report that $50 in cash and a quarterounce of cocaine had been stolen from his car. When officers investigated, they found a baggie with suspected cocaine, a crack pipe and a crack rock in the car. Blackmon was charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.Technology run amokA security robot named Steve suffered a soggy fatal error on July 17 when it tumbled down several steps and into a fountain in Washington, D.C. New to the job, the robot had been patrolling the Washington Harbour area of Georgetown, mapping out its features in an effort to prevent just such an accident. He looked so happy and healthy, an area mourner tweeted after the incident. Another observer was less sympathetic. Robots: 0; humans: 1, he tweeted. Least-competent criminals The Pink Panther, he aint. Police in Wayne County, N.C., are looking for a careless cat burglar who keeps waking people up as he robs them. At least one victim awakened by the slender white man in early July has seen him wearing a pink polka-dot beach towel around his head. Police arent sure if hes actually gotten away with any loot. Three heads are apparently not better than one, as three China Gr ove, N.C., masterminds demonstrated on July 12. Rex Allen Farmer, his son, Rex Carlo Farmer, and the younger mans girlfriend, Kayla Nicole Price, cooked up a scheme to rob the Mooresville gas station where the elder Farmer worked. Surveillance video showed Carlo, disguised in a womans dress and wig, emptying the cash register as his father, the clerk on duty, stood by. Carlo then ran outside and removed the dress and wig, setting them on fire next to the building. However, the fire spread to a meter on the building and a privacy fence, thus summoning authorities. Police soon caught up to all three and arrested them.The animal kingdom An African grey parrot named Bud may have been the key witness in convicting 49-year-old Glenna Duram of White Cloud, Mich., in the shooting death of her husband, Martin Duram, 46. The investigation of the 2015 shooting dragged on for a year before Martins first wife, who inherited the parrot, shared with a local TV station a videotape of Bud imitating two people having an argument, including the words Dont (expletive) shoot. Three weeks later, Glenna Duram was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, and on July 19, she was found guilty. Fire department dispatchers in Branson, Mo., must have thought they were being punked on July 22, when they received a call to rescue a bird from a tree. But it was no joke. A ladder truck was dispatched to rescue a parrot that had escaped and became tangled in its leash 50 feet up in a tree. (Bonus: The firefighter who braved the 50-foot climb was Colt Boldman.) Government in action Adi Astl, 73, took it upon himself to solve a safety problem in Tom Riley Park in the Etobicoke area of Toronto, Ontario. Accessing the park meant navigating a steep hill, and Astl felt it was dangerous. The city balked at building a staircase, citing a cost between $65,000 and $150,000. So Astl, a retired mechanic, built it himself, with the help of a homeless man for $550. Responding to the resulting media storm, the city now plans to build a regulation staircase costing $10,000. Bureaucrats, bureaucrats, bureaucrats, Astl concluded. Meanwhile, in British Columbias New Westminster, the city has constructed, at a cost of $200,000, an unfinished stairway to nowhere. The structure was originally intended to replace a required fire escape on a building, but was left incomplete and unattached to the building when concerns arose about wires overhead. I thought it was an artwork, but I dont think it makes that much sense, said passerby Lawrence Kong.

HEALTHY LIVINGNCH earns Most Wired for sixth yearNCH was named a Most Wired hospital system in the 19th annual Health Cares Most Wired survey recently released by the American Hospital Associations Health Forum. This is the sixth consecutive year we have been so honored. Technology is making it easier for patient and providers to interact, thus improving communication, safety and patient-provider relationships. New tools are helping patients become more involved in their care and in maintaining their health. The Most Wired hospitals are using every available technology option to create more ways to reach their patients in order to provide access to care, AHA President/ CEO Rick Pollack said. They are transforming care delivery, investing in new delivery models in order to improve quality, provide access and control costs. Innovation in patient care embraces emerging technologies and underscores the need for secure patient information exchange. Most Wired hospitals are investing in analytics to support new delivery models and effective decision-making, while training clinicians on how to use analytics to improve quality, provide access and control costs. Of the following 10 actions that 32 percent to 97 percent of all Most Wire Hospitals do, NCH does them all: Analyze retrospective clinical and administrative data to identify areas for improving quality and reducing the cost of care (82 percent of Most Wired hospitals do this). Use sophisticated analytics such as predictive modeling and data to improve decision-making (75 percent). Interface electronic health record data with population health tools for care management (almost 70 percent).SEE WEISS, A17 What women should know about stroke PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTERDid you know that stroke is the third leading cause of death for women? Approximately 55,000 more women than men have a stroke each year, and it kills twice as many women as breast cancer each year. Thats why it is so important to be familiar with the symptoms and risks associated with women and stroke. When it comes to a stroke, every minute counts. If you, or someone you are with, experience the symptoms of stroke, seek medical attention immediately. The sooner treatment begins, the better chance for recovery. Women and men experience many of the same symptoms of stroke: Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg Confusion Difficulty speaking Problems with vision Loss of balance or coordination Trouble walking Sudden onset of a severe headache for no known cause. However, some signs of stroke are unique to women, such as: Rapid onset of hiccups Nausea Fatigue Chest pain Face and limb pain Shortness of breath or heart palpitations. Experiencing stroke symptoms?The signs of stroke require immediate attention. Never wait more than five minutes to dial 9-1-1 if you e xperience even one of the symptoms. You could be experiencing a stroke even if you dont exhibit all of the symptoms. Its also important that you check the time, as the responding medical providers will need to know when your first symptoms occurred. Strokes caused by blood clots, which are called ischemic strokes and are the most common type, can be treated with clot-busting drugs such as tPA, or tissue plasminogen activator. But in order to be effective, the medication must be administered within three hours of the initial onset of symptoms. Anticoagulants, such as warfarin and antiplatelet drugs, such as aspirin, may be prescribed to help prevent a stroke in people who are high risk. In other cases, surgery may be recommended to treat or prevent stroke. Carotid endarterectomy can be performed to remove fatty deposits that clog the carotid artery in the neck. If a person does have a stroke, rehabilitation can help rebuild strength, capability and confidence to continue daily activities.Risk factorsWomen and men share many of the same risk factors for stroke. While a person of any age can have a stroke, risk increases with age. In fact, the chances of having a stroke double every 10 years after the age of 55. Other risk factors include a family history of stroke, high blood pressure or cholesterol, smoking, diabetes, being overweight and not exercising. Women also have some exclusive risk factors that could raise their risk of having a stroke, which include: Taking birth control pills Experiencing natural changes in the body during pregnancy that increase blood pressure and put stress on the heart Using hormone replacement therapy to relieve symptoms of menopause Being postmenopausal and having a waist that is larger than 35.2 inches and a triglyceride level higher than 128 milligrams per liter Suffering from migraines In addition, African-American women have more strokes than Caucasian women, and stroke is the number one cause of death for Hispanic women. PreventionThe good news is that there are steps to prevent stroke. Women can actively reduce the risk of stroke by: Monitoring their blood pressure Not smoking Knowing their cholesterol and triglyceride levels and taking steps to improve those levels, if necessary Limiting alcohol Maintaining a healthy weightGenerally, it is safe for young, healthy women to take birth control pills. However, risk of stroke increases in some women who are over 35, smoke, have diabetes and/or high blood pressure/cholesterol. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

But is there a place where these two opposite ideas meet? The Concours dElegance of America is slightly different than the rest of the premiere shows. Located in the Detroit suburb of Plymouth, Mich., this event takes pride in showcasing some of Americas greatest contributions to motoring. For example, this years event paid tribute to the coachbuilder Walter M. Murphy Co. The California company was not only famous for creating some of the best Duesenberg bodies in preWWII America, but also it was a choice for foreign chassis like Bentley, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce. That makes it the perfect American standout mentioned in the same breath as the great European coachbuilders. Another interesting American that doesnt get seen too often is a 1931 Duesenberg Model SJ. This coupe would almost pass for the current trend to have a car completely murdered out covered in black. But this style was original to the body, because the customer told the American coachbuilder Bohman & Schwartz that he wanted the whole coupe covered in a naugahyde-like synthetic leather. One of the boldest categories for 2017 featured competition cars known as Gassers. These were built in the 1950s-s as budget racers, and they earned their name for running on common gasoline instead of a more sophisticated racing fuel. A Gassers hallmarks were a raised front end fitting a crude solid front axle, and often there was so much weight removed that there was little left up front besides the fenders. Originally there was nothing elegant about the design, and thus, this is a category will unlikely be found at any other top-tier concours. Gassers arent comparable to the million-dollar coachbuilt vehicles that were parked a stones throw away. But these built the foundation of drag racing both on the racetracks and what raced in-between stoplights. And so they deserve their place in the sun. But dont think this is an event strictly for the nationalistic crowd. The Concours dElegance of America still showcases plenty of traditional European grace with cars like a 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C, 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K, 1937 Talbot-Lago 150C Aero Coupe. All of these are considered among the most beautiful and streamlined cars of the 20th century. Possibly this mix of American and European influences was best showcased by the Enthusiast of the Year, Ralph Gilles. As head of design at Fiat Chrysler, hes often looking at both sides of the Atlantic for inspiration. While Gilles special display did not stray too far from his current employers brands, it was a treat to see the classically graceful Alfa Romeos racers of the 1960s share space with the brutish Dodge Viper concept car. And while it may seem that these should make for a mismatched presentation, they were felt harmonious under the theme that Form follows passion. The Concours dElegance of America states its purpose in its name. Its about showcasing a world of automotive style while still being proud of its home-grown roots as illustrated by its awards. Best in Show is divided to honor one winner from America and a separate prize for the rest of the world. This year, a 1931 Stutz DV-32 Convertible Victoria was best American, and a 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A took home the top award for foreign cars. This is a different system than most other shows of this caliber, but it feels correct here. After all, classic cars might be a universal language, but in Detroit, theres some extra patriotism in their favoritism. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com 1931 Duesenberg Model SJ Bohman & Schwartz. 1937 Talbot-Lago 150C Aero Coupe. 1953 Chrysler New Yorker convertible. 1929 Auburn 8-90 Boattail.Know where traffic deputies hit the roadHeres where Collier County Sheriffs Office deputies will be on traffic detail the week of Aug. 14-18: Monday, Aug. 14 Radio and Airport-Pulling roads: Aggressive driving Golden Gate Parkway and I-75 southbound exit: Speeding Pine Ridge and Livingston roads: Red-light running Tuesday, Aug. 15 Naples Boulevard: Speeding Immokalee Road and Logan Boulevard: Red-light running Collier and Green boulevards: Redlight running Wednesday, Aug. 16 Santa Barbara Boulevard at Calusa Park Elementary School: Aggressive driving Pine Ridge Road at Pine Ridge Middle School: Aggressive driving Victory Lane at Palmetto Ridge High School: Speeding Thursday, Aug. 17 U.S. 41 East and Collier Boulevard: Aggressive driving Golden Gate Parkway and Sunshine Boulevard: Speeding Airport-Pulling Road and Cougar Drive: Speeding Friday, Aug. 18 Vineyards Boulevard: Aggressive driving Rattlesnake Hammock Road and St. Andrews Boulevard: Speeding Bayshore Drive and Botanical Place Circle: Speeding Check out CCSO2go appCCSO2go, the mobile application of the Collier County Sheriffs Office, is free to download.

Cambier Park selected for 2017 Farm City BBQ SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Farm City BBQ of Collier County moves to Cambier Park in downtown Naples for 2017. Hosted by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County and with deep roots in the local business and agricultural communities, the 62nd annual feast is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22. Cambier Park is a wonderful venue for this historic event, bringing the culture and history of agriculture in Collier County into the city of Naples, says Bill Barker, this years chairman and president/publisher of the Naples Daily News. Over the years the pre-Thanksgiving tradition has raised more than $300,000 for nonprofit organizations that benefit local youth leadership development programs.The National Farm City Council was formed 62 years ago in an effort to help bring together business and agricultural communities. Their goal was to demonstrate the interdependence of a vibrant network of farmers and business owners that help support the economy and provide the basic essentials that every citizen needs. From the truck driver to the rancher, the fisherman, the futures broker and the biotechnology scientist, they all play an important role in making sure that Americans have access to a healthy and abundant supply of food. In Collier County, the Farm City BBQ was formed in a similar way. Event volunteers remember when area farmers had a bad year of crops. The business leaders reached out to the farmers, inviting them for a barbecue and sharing in the little produce that was available so that their families wouldnt go hungry on Thanksgiving Day. A year later, the Immokalee farming community wanted to reciprocate the hospitality, so they invited the business leaders for a BBQ in the country. Since then, the event has rotated from city to country locations; last years site was Seminole Immokalee Casino, and the year before was Naples Municipal Airport. Beneficiaries of the 2017 barbecue are the Collier County 4-H Association, Youth Leadership Collier, the Collier County Junior Deputies League and Key Club International.About the beneficiariesThe Collier County 4-H Association (formerly Collier County 4-H Foundation) funds and supports the activities of Collier County 4-H, reaching more than 7,600 local students every year. In addition to traditional 4-H agricultural programs, Collier County 4-H offers many innovative educational opportunities. Students learn how to build and program robots, create maps using drones, write and deliver effective speeches and become leaders through numerous other hands-on experiences. Programs take place in Collier County Public Schools during the school day, in after school settings and in many traditional 4-H clubs throughout the community. Youth Leadership Collier is a program of the Leadership Collier Foundation, an affiliate of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. YLC empowers students to become effective and ethical leaders, showcases Collier County through field work with key organizations and encourages students to come back to (or stay in) Collier County to begin their begin careers and community leadership. For years the Farm City BBQ has assisted YLC in its efforts to have the tuition for this program remain accessible to all qualified candidates regardless of socioeconomic background. In cooperation with the Collier County Sheriffs Office, the Collier County Junior Deputies League helps prepare local youth to become responsible, lawabiding citizens. The leagues 34-acre site in eastern Collier County is used for youth activities throughout the year, and plans are underway to add an openair pavilion, camp centers with restrooms, six campsites with fire rings and a fishing dock to expand programs for Collier youth. Key Club International is the high school-based service organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Twelve Collier County high school Key Clubs provide more than 600 members with opportunities to perform community service and be mentored in leadership, communication and other vital development skills. Funds from Farm City BBQ are used to send student leaders to the annual District Leadership & Education Conference in Orlando. In recent years, more than $300,000 has been donated back into our community to support the progress of these organizations in providing hands-on education from elementary through high school students.About this years hostSince its inception in 1981, the Marine Industries Association of Collier County has been dedicated to boater safety, boater education and access to Floridas waterways.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationYou probably know that your dog is required by law to have a rabies vaccination either annually or triennially (every three years). Most states allow owners to decide how often to give the vaccine. But theres more to rabies-related law than frequency of vaccination. Heres what you and your veterinarian should know. Most of us assume that our pets are considered vaccinated for rabies once that needle enters the body. Not so. Pets are not considered currently vaccinated until 28 days after the initial injection, says Richard Ford, DVM, an internal medicine specialist and immunology expert who spoke at last months American Veterinary Medical Association conference in Indianapolis. Your pet is considered overdue for a booster vaccine one day beyond the one-year or three-year date following the initial vaccination. By law, a pet is not considered immunized beyond that date, even though generally the only difference between a one-year and a three-year rabies vaccine is what it says on the label. In other words, even though a one-year vaccine generally offers the same protection as a three-year vaccine, in law there is no tolerance. Once your pet is revaccinated, though, he returns immediately to currently vaccinated status, regardless of the amount of time that has elapsed since the vaccine was due. Are cats required to have rabies vaccinations? At least nine states do not mandate rabies vaccinations for cats. In fact, Missouri, Kansas and Ohio have no state laws mandating rabies vaccinations for any pets. Nonetheless, its a good idea to have it done, especially if you allow your pet to go outdoors. In 2015, 244 cases of rabies involving cats were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thats 58 percent of all reported cases involving domestic animals that year. If your pet is currently unvaccinated and bites or scratches someone the usual routes of exposure its not an automatic death sentence for your pet. Its sometimes assumed that euthanasia followed by testing of the brain for rabies is required, but thats not so. Whether a pet is currently vaccinated, the law in the majority of states calls for a 10-day quarantine in the owners home, followed by revaccination of the pet. Pets who have been exposed to rabies and the definition of exposure varies from state to state face a stiffer quarantine of 45 days at home. Thats only if they are considered to be currently vaccinated, however. Pet owners must generally be able to document that the rabies vaccination is current. An unvaccinated pet who is exposed is generally subject to a four-month strict quarantine at a facility for that purpose. That can cost several thousand dollars. The pet must be vaccinated at the time of entry and sometimes within 96 hours of exposure. Pets who are not up to date on their rabies vaccinations and bite someone may, however, face euthanasia if the person who was bitten isnt willing to wait for the animal to complete the 10-day home quarantine. Dr. Ford cited the case of a dog who was two months late for a rabies booster vaccine. The dog bit the child next door, and the parent insisted that the dog be euthanized and tested immediately. The public health department concurred, and the dog lost his life. Examination of brain tissue determined that he was not infected with rabies. Some pet owners would like to skip rabies vaccinations for animals who are old or have illnesses that could put them at greater risk of a vaccine reaction. They wonder if a rabies titer test can be used to establish immunity. The answer is no. In law, a rabies titer is not recognized as a valid index of protection. Only 16 states allow veterinarians to exempt pets from rabies vaccinations for health reasons. More information on rabies requirements is available at rabiesaware.org.

THE DIVA DIARIESLet a local getaway take you out of the redsIt happens every year at this time. I call it the August reds. Id say it was the August blues, but these days, the weather is red and my mood is dead. Im not the only one. I know plenty of Southwest Floridians who flee our steamy little corner of the tropics around this time of year in the search of cool breezes and less oppressive humidity. I see them on Facebook Teri in North Carolina, Amy in New York City and Sunny in South Africa. And while Im happy for them, my August reds turn green with envy. I was lucky enough to travel a bit in May, but the thing is, its not so horrible here in May August is really the optimum time to get away, when those reds kick in. But if youre like me and you blew all your travel time earlier in the summer, or if traveling outside this boiling peninsula is impossible because of work obligations or limited finances, then I have to recommend that for your sanity, you run from the reds by going somewhere close by. So, its hot I get it. But, we dont have to stay stuck. I know the word staycation is tired and overused, but never knock a muchneeded weekend escape to rejuvenate. Considering the fact that Ive lived here since the Stone Age, I have a list of quite a few enjoyable local jaunts. Here are a few of my favorites: You cant beat Sanibel for a weekend in paradise. There are lots of shady trees, no traffic lights and scenic bike paths from one end to the other. Plus, this time of year the island is slow and quiet. And since its a barrier island, theres even a breeze I promise. Rent bikes from Billys Bike Rentals on Periwinkle Way and peddle to up to Doc Fords for a refreshing mojito. Check out the resorts, hotels and quaint cottages for Florida resident/off-season discounts. Make your way to Marco Island for a much-needed ahhhhh weekend. Again, the off-season rates at resorts like the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort are pretty sweet, and you might just have money left over for a charter voyage to Cape Romano to check out the famous dome homes and gather some perfect specimen shells. Marco is pretty famous for good restaurants, too and this time of year theres no waiting in line for a table. Im no meteorologist, but the temperature might be a degree or two less hot in the northern climes of Sarasota or we can always hope so anyway. Theres so much to love about Sarasota: the charming historic downtown area, window shopping at St. Armands Circle, the Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Laboratory and the sandy shores of nearby Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. Plus, with traffic at a minimum in August, you can stay somewhere affordable on the mainland and drive to the waterfront for the day. To beat the August reds, these are my top three faves but dont forget Amelia Island in the northwest corner of the state, South Beach in Miami for color and culture or even a quick trip to the Keys for some snorkeling. So even if you cant get to the mountains or Manhattan or across the pond, you absolutely can beat the August reds by staying local and without putting your bank account in the red. Happy trails! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com
President enjoys variety on the job BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentVariety is indeed the spice of life for Susan Hadinger. That is a major reason why being part of the family business, Hadinger Flooring in Naples, is ideal for someone who shies away from the hum-drum and routine. It is a great business, said Ms. Hadinger. It really is a vibrant and very fashionoriented industry with the design aspect. Its constantly changing, its constantly fun. I enjoy working with everybody and I enjoy the different everyday challenges. Theres always something new on the horizon. Hardwood, laminate, tile, natural stone and vinyl flooring, along with an array of carpeting, area rugs and cabinetry can be perused at the store that advertises as the states largest with 30,000 square feet of showroom space and a 21,000-square-foot warehouse. The company was founded in 1931 in Fort Atkinson, Wis., by Tom Hadinger, who is Ms. Hadingers stepfather. He sold his interests in Wisconsin and shifted operations to Naples in 1983. Ms. Hadingers mother, Judy, is also involved in the business, overseeing and handling purchasing for the area rug section that she started 19 years ago. Ms. Hadingers purview at the store spans everything from A to Z. Im involved in pretty much every aspect advertising, work flow and processes, social media, our website, community involvement, personnel and hiring, she said.

She also closely follows flooring industry trends to stay on top of consumer tastes and whats driving the market. Theres definitely a trend toward tile and wood, versus carpet, and luxury vinyl planks are a big category and getting bigger, she said. Shes been with the company for seven years, the last two as president. She spent the first five years learning the ropes and acquiring knowledge, first learning about rugs, then flooring and cabinets, which are a relatively new offering for the company. Prior to that, she lived in Colorado, where she taught social studies at the high school level for seven years and then worked in corporate training. Skills honed in the classroom definitely have valuable application in her current position. Teaching prepares you for pretty much any job, she said. Teaching is a job where you have to be fully autonomous in running a classroom and you have to have a lot of various skills to do that. Ms. Hadinger grew up in Jacksonville and Gainesville before attending college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, where she earned an undergraduate degree in economics. She then attained a masters in education at the University of Alabama-Birmingham and moved to Denver. She lived there for 15 years, marrying Adam Schonberg during that time period. After the birth of their son Drew, 9, the couple moved to Collier County to be closer to family. Ms. Schonberg is an account executive at Florida Weekly.My family sustains me, said Ms. Hadinger. Her business philosophy centers on the concept of service. I believe that we should do what we can to serve our customers and make their experience a good one, she said. We also try to show our employees how much we appreciate them. Being a family-run business, we place a great emphasis on the family atmosphere. We also appreciate our community and like to give back. Hadinger Flooring demonstrates its support for schools in Collier and Lee counties by donating more than 100 rugs each year to teachers for use in their classrooms. The company holds an annual charity golf tournament and donates the proceeds to a different organization each year, and also donates rugs for silent auctions that benefit charitable causes. Going forward, I think were going to step it up a little bit and do a more organized effort to support one local charity every year, Ms. Hadinger said. The concept of service also guides her personal life, which includes coaching Odyssey of the Mind teams at Seagate Elementary School, where Drew is a student. And she is working to start a local chapter of the international nonprofit Childrens International Summer Villages. CISV promotes cross-cultural understanding among youths and adults through educational programs, with the goal of encouraging respect for cultural differences. Its a fantastic organization, she said, adding, I participated when I was 11, and I would like my child and other children in the area to have the same opportunity. nInterview with Susan HadingerBusiness mentor: I have many mentors, but the biggest are my parents and our CEO, Ed Keller. My parents have done a great job of building a fantastic business, and Ed has been very generous in sharing his extensive flooring knowledge with me. First job: I was a summer camp counselor. Two things you look for when hiring: Reliability and a good attitude are two things we emphasize. You can train for job duties, but you cant train attitude. Any job openings? We are currently looking for an administrative assistant and a rug handler.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGGeopolitics, Trumps economic plans could affect the price of goldThis has been an exciting year for investing in almost all asset classes and securities except one gold. In fact, the price of the precious metal has been downright boring for the last eight months. In January, gold was trading at around $1,200 per ounce and then rose to $1,300. In the next few months, it fell back down to $1,200. Then it rose to $1,300. Then it dropped to $1,200. Now it is increasing back to $1,300. Why has gold vacillated in such a tight range? Will it ever break out? In the past year, the bullish and bearish forces affecting gold prices have been roughly in balance. On the bearish side, the economy has been fairly robust. Jobs are being created and GDP has been positive. This would typically depress gold prices, as investors have other areas to gain a higher return than in gold. Counter to this, inflation has been almost non-existent in the U.S. Consumer goods and wage inflation have not risen as one would expect in a strong economic period of growth. Low inflation is generally positive for gold prices. Investors that hold the commodity wont lose ground as prices rise, given that gold does not produce interest or dividend income. An equally bullish and bearish factor on gold recently has news from Washington, D.C. The chaotic Trump presidency has been bullish in that analysts are worried that important economic drivers like tax reform and infrastructure spending will be sidelined, and the economy will suffer as a result. In addition, worry over an impasse on the debt ceiling has made the safe haven of gold more popular and the dollar weaker. On the bearish side, the Fed has been promising to slowly sell off its massive bond portfolio in recent months. This should push interest rates higher, depressing gold prices as the opportunity costs of holding gold versus fixed income investments rise. Given these opposing forces, it should be no surprise that gold has not been able to gain traction in any direction for any extended length of time. But there are some wild cards that may tilt the balance in the near future. First, there are geopolitical risks that are becoming more pronounced such as possible military action in North Korea or problems in the Middle East. Should any of these worrisome factors come to reality, gold will certainly rise as investors look to a safe haven for their funds. In contrast, if the Trump administration were to pass tax reforms or an infrastructure plan, that would put downward pressure on precious metal prices. Similarly, if the Fed actively starts to unwind its balance sheet or raise rates more aggressively than analysts predict because of a strong economy or higher inflation numbers, that would also depress gold prices. A final force that may tip the scales of gold prices may be physical demand for precious metals. Right now, the demand for gold is low in places like India and China. If their economies impr ove, that can turn around quickly. I would expect gold and other precious metals to maintain their tight trading range for the time being. But given the unpredictability of Washington politics and geopolitical events, it may only be a matter of time before gold takes us for a wild ride once again.

Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we canÂt provide individual financial advice. Overgrown HedgesMore and more money has been pouring into hedge funds in recent years, with their total assets topping $3.3 trillion globally in 2017. (In contrast, U.S.-based mutual funds hold more than $16 trillion.)Many people imagine that hedge funds are conservative, ÂhedgingÂŽ their bets when they invest. The truth is, some may be conservative, but plenty of them are quite volatile and risky. And thatÂs just one of their problems.Over many long periods, hedge funds, in aggregate, have underperformed the overall U.S. stock market Â„ while charging far higher fees. As Ray Dalio, manager of one of the biggest hedge funds, quipped several years ago: ÂThere are about 8,000 planes in the air and 100 really good pilots.ÂŽ According to the Financial Times in May 2016, ÂSince the market hit its post-crisis bottom in March 2009, passive, low-cost equity fund investors have thrived while hedge fund returns have underperformed the S&P 500 by 51 percentage points.ÂŽ For the privilege of investing in hedge funds that often underperform the S&P 500 index, which can be invested in easily and very inexpensively, investors pay dearly. The common compensation system for hedge fund managers is referred to as Â2 and 20ÂŽ: The managers collect 2 percent of investorsÂ assets each year, whether they deliver gains or losses, and they also take 20 percent of any gains. Fortunately, most of us canÂt invest in hedge funds, even if we wanted to. Like mutual funds, hedge funds pool the money of multiple investors, which is then invested by one or more professional money managers. However, hedge funds are far less regulated, and less disclosure is required of them. TheyÂre also open only to Âaccredited investorsÂŽ Â„ folks earning upward of $200,000 per year ($300,000 for couples), or those worth more than a million dollars. Since hedge fund managers are less restricted, they can take more risks than ordinary investors or mutual fund managers Â„ and many do, investing aggressively in options and futures, shorting stocks, investing with borrowed money and making currency bets. Learn more from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) at sec. gov/fast-answers/answershedgehtm.html. Sold Too SoonMy dumbest investment was when I bought shares of electric carmaker Tesla for around $17 per share at its initial public offering (IPO) in 2010. I sold them at $37 per share in 2012. I canÂt complain about the gains, but when I look at how much more the stock has grown, it feels like a dumb investment. It was recently trading at $330 per share! Â„ G., onlineThe Fool Responds: You did leave a lot of profit on the table, but at least you nearly doubled your money. ItÂs easy to look back with regrets once a stock has soared, but back when you sold your shares, you couldnÂt have known just how the stock would perform in the future. (Indeed, we often recommend steering clear of IPOs for a year or two, to allow time for any overexcitement to die down and for the company to perform for a while as a public entity. Many IPOs soar at first and then return to Earth.) Many people are bullish on TeslaÂs future right now, due in part to its newly launched lower-priced Model 3 car as well as its battery technology and solar energy systems Â„ but thereÂs reason to not be fully confident, too. The company has posted operating losses in all of the past 10 years, other carmakers are coming out with competitive electric cars, and its stock is viewed by many as overvalued. Prescription for ProfitsPharmacy benefits management (PBM) company Express Scripts (Nasdaq: ESRX) has seen its shares tumble in recent months due to two major negative pieces of news. First, itÂs expected to lose its relationship with its largest customer, health insurer Anthem, in 2019, knocking out a big chunk of its earnings power. Second, Amazon.com may enter the business of delivering prescription medications. On the plus side, the Anthem dispute may be a distant memory a decade from now. And as the population of older Americans increases, demand for prescription drugs should rise. Express ScriptsÂ size enables it to hold down costs better than most PBMs, which should help it grow over the long run. In the meantime, the company is benefiting from an increase in the use of generic drugs and mail orders, and it may be able to further boost its business through cost savings. Express ScriptsÂ current risks naturally have investors jittery about the stock. Yet thatÂs exactly why its stock may be a great value at its recent depressed price near $63 per share. With its forwardlooking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 9, much of the pessimism surrounding Express Scripts has already been priced into its stock, and it may very well turn out to be a bargain for todayÂs investors. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Express Scripts.) I trace my roots back to the Executive Leasing Company, launched in St. Louis in 1957 with seven cars. My founder started renting cars in 1962, and in 1969 renamed me in honor of the aircraft carrier he served on in World War II. Today IÂm a rental giant, with my own flagship brand as well as Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental. I boast more than 7,200 locations in more than 90 countries and a fleet of more than 1.8 million vehicles. I rake in more than $20 billion annually and am privately held. Who am I? (Answer: Enterprise) Mortgage or Stocks?QWhat should I spend some extra monthly money on Â„ paying down my mortgage faster, or investing it in a stock market index fund? Â„ T.M., Norwich, ConnecticutAPaying off your mortgage early is often worthwhile, especially if youÂre nearing retirement, as few people want to be on the hook for mortgage payments in retirement. But whether itÂs smart to prioritize paying off your mortgage depends on some factors, such as interest rates. If your mortgage interest rate is 5 percent, then any extra principal you pay off will save you 5 percent in interest payments Â„ which is like earning a 5 percent return. If you hope to earn the stock marketÂs long-term average annual return of roughly 10 percent, then thatÂs clearly more compelling than the 5 percent return. Remember, though, that the 5 percent is much more of a sure thing than the 10 percent. This decision is easier when mortgage interest rates are high. ***QWhen a mutual fund holds dividend-paying stocks, where do those dividends go? Â„ D.D., Columbus, MississippiAThe dividends paid belong to the shareholders, not the fund company. Typically, when you first invest some money in a fund, youÂll be asked to specify whether you want to receive the dividends as cash payments or have them reinvested in additional shares of the fund. After a fund receives dividends and before it distributes them to shareholders, the dividendsÂ value is added to the fundÂs net asset value (NAV). Later, the NAV is reduced to reflect the departure of accumulated dividends. So donÂt be alarmed if you see a fund suddenly drop in value one day Â„ it might simply mean that a dividend distribution was made. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBut in South Florida, there are those restaurateurs who have made it and have opened multiple eateries spread out in several counties. These are largely the independents, and generations of families in some cases, who have a handful of concepts that are successful on all levels. What made them so? We talked to several who provided insight into their processes. Solid work ethics, business acumen, market foresight, and putting ego aside to learn from the best of the competition are cited. Not withstanding, there was some luck involved, too. Paul PedenSometimes, you have to leave a good thing alone. The Veranda is one of the oldest restaurant in Fort Myers and is owned by Paul Peden, who knows a great restaurant concept; hes operated seven or eight over the years. But the dowager of fine dining is a oneof-a-kind operation. Unique in so many ways, he says. Yet it continues to evolve. Whatever the guest wants it to be, we want to accommodate and change for them. In that regard, it will never be duplicated, he said. At one time or another over 40 years, we had steakhouses, seafood, Italian, Mexican restaurants. We dipped our toe in all kinds of concepts. What we found is its a lot harder to run seven different concepts than two. Hes put his focus on Rib City, a barbecue spot he has turned into a franchise, with 28 of the full-serve cue restaurants in Florida and six other states. Rib City is easily duplicated. You can zero in. You know the operating costs, and if you manage labor costs, you can do comparables between stores, he said. Its the same physical setup, mostly, and the same menu, and same expectations for sales. But even in a same-same restaurant, you have to be passionate about it. You gotta do it. Walk the walk and talk the talk. You have to be a personality that doesnt like confrontation. You have to be prepared for it on a constant basis. He keeps up with the trends in technology that he says are changing the business drastically. We see a huge growth in home delivery and casual fast-service. Panera Bread: you dont deal with a service person You order, get your food and sit down. The end of full-service restaurants wont be soon, but more restaurants will be using this model to eliminate labor costs, he said. A new generation of diners doesnt mind the self-serve or ordering by screen, he says. Millennials want it now. Everybody has a phone or tablet in their hand. Thats how they do business and order everything today. If you want to be part of that market, you have to get in it. Home delivery, and self-service are the models he is going to use for a new concept he hopes to launch in the next six months: Rib City Q. The Q is for quick. Youll order, get your food and sit. No servers so theres faster table turnover. No waiting on beverages, the food, or check, and diners will eat and leave. There will be a delivery component to this one, too, he said, if the neighborhood warrants it and its logical. Its easily duplicated as a franchise, and there are none yet jumping on it. Everyone loves barbecue, he said, and theres a place for it everywhere. As to other concepts, hes not ruling them out, but the focus is on Rib City and Rib City Q. He sums it up: Theres no finish line in the restaurant business. You keep working at it. Richard GonzmartHis name is legend in Floridas restaurant history. With the iconic 112-year-old Columbia Restaurant to claim as a fifthgeneration heritage, Richard Gonzmart could sit on some laurels a long while. Yet the 64-yearold, president of the Columbia Restaurant Group of 13 restaurants, rises in the wee hours of the morning daily, trolling the internet, churning ideas for his next projects. He has seven in the works. Hes a champion of Tampa and its future. Hes a philanthropist and hard worker who supports hard workers. Hes a cancer survivor driven to make each day count. Its a mad ADD drive he admits to that doesnt stop, and its the cornerstone to his restaurants successes. Talking feverishly, he said, The key is to be passionate about the business. You have to be educated, and understand what it takes to run a restaurant, and what the guest expects. As a restaurant owner, you must also reinvent yourself, he said. For the block-long Columbia in Ybor City, the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Florida, that means reinvesting in it to the tune of $25 million. Its the largest Spanish restaurant in the U.S., with 1,700 seats spread out among its 15 dining rooms and courtyard. We put a lot into restoring it. Its a lot of work to maintain, he said. Meanwhile, he continues to fire off new concepts. Two of his latest are bold successes, both with a history factor. Ulele Restaurant and Brewery in Tampa opened three years ago on the Hillsborough River in a building used by the citys Water Works years ago. The brewery is a nod to Mr. Gonzmarts great-grandfathers saloon. A giant round barbacoa grill is the centerpiece of the restaurant, in homage to the Arawak Native Americans who lived here in the 1500s. Gulf Coast oysters and steaks from a single Florida rancher are cooked over its fire. We created something unique. It surpassed my expectations, he said. Then theres Goody Goody. Mr. Gonzmart fondly remembers the famous drive-in that closed in 2005 after an 80-year run. It was a part of Tampas identity, its who we were, he said. It was the citys first drive-in restaurant, and was an informal value meal for many. Serving multigenerations of families, it plays into the memories of longtime residents and visitors alike. The restaurant group revived it in 2016, and opened an outpost in the airport this year. The former owner praised him for taking such good care of the brand. He becomes even more animated talking about the project due next year in Ybor City. Its a Sicilian restaurant, Santo Stefano Quisquina, born out of the heritage recipes from a small Italian village, The (immigrant) families that came to Ybor City, a lot were from Spain and Cuba, but many were from Italy. Sixty percent of those came from one tiny Sicilian village: Santo Stefano di Camastra, he said. The restaurant will capture the essence of the Old World cooking style. Everything has to be made from scratch, just like it was in the old days. We dont need a freezer. All the foods will be fresh, he said. Hes had failures, he said. In the 1950s and s, the Columbia went through some hard times. Cigar factories in Ybor City shut down and people moved away. Troubles with a financial officer led to his firing, and Mr. Gonzmart taking over the management of Mangari, an Italian concept that didnt last, The company failed again in West Palm Beach with a Columbia, though he said he was warned against the fickle market beforehand. We were being courted by the company who ran CityPlace, he said. Parking was but one issue. After a year that saw struggles, a new landlord didnt want to have an independent restaurant owner in the huge space along Okeechobee Boulevard. Well negotiate out of it, he told the landlord. A national chain was brought in. It soon went into Chapter 11 bankruptcy, he said. The Lord watched out for me. His says Never, never give up. Theres always a solution. In this business, he said, You have to trust your instincts. When I havent followed up, I regretted it. If I didnt do it, I regret it. Dennis MaxThe man who brought the exploding California food movement to Florida in the 1980s, a concept now labeled as farmto-table, is still at it. Im 72 and I feel like 45, says Dennis Max. After opening 41 or so restaurants in a variety of concepts he says hes lost count Mr. Max is still coming up with fresh ideas, while capitalizing on long-ago successes. The Boca Raton-based restaurateur started his professional restaurant career in the 1970s as manager in an up-and-coming chain of railroad-themed steakhouses, Victoria Station. They were going to grow rapidly, he said, and he wanted in on that ground floor. As a regional manager, he moved to South Florida to open some of their restaurants here. Along the way, he made friends with a coworker, Burt Rapoport, who would become his partner in several restaurants, including his first, a casual Mexican in Fort Lauderdale called Carlos & Pepes Cantina. In the beginning, he says, I kind of just wanted to do one restaurant. But I was always groomed to do this many. Not long after came his foray into fine dining, with Caf Max in Pompano Beach. Its strip mall placement was a terrible location, he said. But the unique California-style, farmfresh menu, plus a wine list gleaned from domestic vineyards hot at the time drew modern diners from as far away as Miami. The power of the concept was so strong, people came anyway. We were the first ones in the Southeast (U.S.) to do it, he said. Nobody down here was doing anything like it. Guests urged him to open in Miami, and he opened Maxs Place in Sunny Isles, another success. His star chef, Mark Militello, would go on to become a restaurateur in his own right. Different concepts followed, always ahead of the dining curve. The Dennis Max name became gold in the business. His Italian concepts Prezzo, opened with Mr. Rapoport, having the first woodburning oven around, and Maxaluna in Boca Raton were wildly successful. Prezzo will have a rebirth this fall in Park Plaza in Boca Raton with customer anticipation already high from its fans of the past. Not all his ideas were hits, however. Maxs Grille, a spot that has been a lunch staple since it opened in Boca Ratons Mizner Park more than 25 years ago, was tried in Orlandos Celebration, but never achieved the success of Bocas. Others, like Maxs Waters Edge in Manalapan, and Maxs Coffee Shop and The Mexican in Boca Raton, and the recently sh utter ed Social House in Delray, a cocktail-forward concept, didnt find audiences in their respective markets. The Social House was, he says, a labor of love. He was surprised it didnt make it. I thought it was a really good job. Sometimes you make good moves. The market it wasnt what they wanted. His eye is on fresh foods in a casual, quick-serve setting now. Diners today are busy and on the run. But young people expect fresh foods. Youve got Whole Foods Market and Amazon now delivering fresh food to their homes. He cites Bolay, the quick-fresh concept begun by Outback founder Tim Gannon with his son, Chris, as the new menus in his next iteration. Theres room in that area for his own concept that can be multiple units, he believes. Already successful with Maxs Harvest, a farm-to-table restaurant in Delrays Pineapple Gr ove, he knows the food will work with todays diners. The challenge is finding the right markets for them and getting the right team in place. The secret to success is reading the audience, he says. The smartest thing, though, is to always have really good people.

OPEN SUNDAY AUG. 13TH, 1-4PM OPEN SUNDAY AUG. 13TH, 1-4PM A TROPICAL PARADISE!Miami Beach was an unnamed barrier island with a few avocado trees, dense mangroves, lots of mosquitoes, very few people and almost impossible to get to until an Indiana promoter and entrepreneur began its historic transformation. Carl G. Fisher looked at the strip of desolate Florida sand and saw a grand resort city. When early developers such as John Collins (think Miami Beachs Collins Avenue main drag) ran short of money to build the first bridge from the mainland to Miami Beach, it was Mr. Fisher who stepped in with his money and vision to move the project along. To get people to his new Miami Beach, Mr. Fisher paid for a billboard in Times Square in the middle of the winter advertising that it was June in Miami Beach. Vacationers and transplants began flocking to Miami Beach. The population increased by more than 400 percent from 1920 to 1925. In 1923, Mr. Fisher built the Miami Yacht Club on Star Island, which he later turned into a private residence. With the double whammy of the Florida real estate collapse following the Great Miami Hurricane in 1926 and the 1929 Great Depression, Mr. Fisher lost his fortune and spent the remainder of his life as a handyman living in a small home in Miami Beach, where he died in 1939. Now, for the first time in 30 years, his former estate on Star Island is for sale. Priced at $65 million, the 1.5-acre property is on the tip of the island with commanding views of Biscayne Bay. The 18,400-square-foot mansion has 10 bedrooms, 12 baths, a two-story formal living room, a 3,000-bottle wine cellar, three offices and two separate staff living areas currently used by a full-time staff of five employees. There is 255 feet of bay frontage, two docks and a boatlift, swimming pool and cabana. The listing agents are Alexa Lacovelli, Mirce Curkoski and Albert Justo from One Sothebys International Realty in Miami Beach. For more information, visit www.sothebysrealty.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 REAL ESTATE B19Kalea 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/4.5bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, openair bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants 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. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: The first tower at Kalea Bay is slated to be completed in November.

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.

It involves three major elements: architects, cocktail napkins and drinks. Lots of drinks. The grassroots competition is the brainchild of West Palm Beach urban designer/public artist Sherryl Muriente, MURP, Associate AIA, who came up with the idea four years ago.

Down & Out Books. 292 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95. I cant think of another short story collection that Ive read in recent years thats given me such a jolt of vicarious experience and insight. Original, fraught with every kind of pain, clearsighted and despairing, Jeffery Hess book a group of 15 stories focused on the lives of Navy seamen during the Cold War takes us to external and internal places that most of us have been able to avoid. And that avoidance has distanced us from people, whole swaths of society, we have unwittingly depended on to keep us safe and even prosperous. Given todays concerns about Americas conflicts and rivalries with Vladimir Putins Russia, these stories take on an added dimension of relevance. In addi tion, they are amazingly well-written, filled with an abundance of explosive imagery and presented through unmistakably authentic firstor third-person voices (with perhaps a bit of literary overlay on and around these voices). The lives of shipboard sailors on patrol in potentially dangerous parts of the world are lives of confinement and compression. Their tasks as communications experts, engineers or electricians are tedious and tense. They perform maintenance, make repairs when necessary and prepare to meet emergencies. A ship is a dangerous place even when not under fire; so many things can go disastrously wrong. Such things happen in the stories of The Cold Water Canoe Club. These sailors are confined spatially, socially and often spiritually. They depend on one another and yet can learn to both love and hate their workmates. The compression demands release: port days with a bit of time off, prostitutes and all the drugs and alcohol one can manage or mismanage. Mr. Hess begins with an early marker of the background history, a story set in 1949 near the outset of the Cold War, and then moves us forward through the following decades, beyond the Cuban Missile Crisis and up to the Reagan presidencys achievement. He takes us to Lebanon, Turkey, Manila, Naples, Guam and other places where a U.S. fighting ship might go or stop. f i t v o p philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com HESS 9118 Strada Place Mercato #ThePubNaples$39.95 per person + tax and gratuity Limited seating | Call for reservations 239.594.2748 5-Course Wine DinnerFeaturing wines by Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits Visit our Facebook Event for full menu and pairingsWednesday, August 23rd | 6:30 pm

He offers enough telling scenes of his characters stateside domestic lives so that readers can feel the interweaving, often chilling, causeand-effect vibration between ship life and home life. The language Mr. Hess creations use is filled with political incorrectness. Offenses against bourgeois propriety reign. We might be embarrassed to find ourselves in their company, yet Mr. Hess allows us to come close them, to empathize, respect and even admire them. Of course, not all of them. Even though the characters circumstances have so much in common, Mr. Hess manages to individualize them skillfully and knowingly. Though male characters dominate, the several important female characters are given the same care, the same verisimilitude and distinctiveness and pitch perfect voices. Cold Water Canoe Club is an unusual adventure, at once roughhewn, raw, sophisticated and lyrical. Be prepared. About the authorJeffery Hess is the author of the novel Beachhead as well as the editor of the award-winning anthologies Home of the Brave: Stories in Uniform and Home of the Brave: Somewhere in the Sand.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtalking. So why not transform that impulse into a friendly competition? When the Florida AIA planning committee was working on the 2014 conference, Ms. Muriente says, We wanted to have a happy hour with a purpose, where people would have to draw to get a prize which was a free drink. We put it into the program as part of the convention. Part of the idea was to encourage networking so that AIA members from around the state could get to know one another. And when architects draw together, she adds, You really come to your core and you understand each other. It would also be a friendly way for more experienced and younger architects to mingle. Twenty-five conference attendees showed up for the first Drink and Draw. The conference was in Miami that year and was so successful it became a tradition. The second Drink and Draw took place in Boca Raton, the third in West Palm Beach. And the fourth occurred recently at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples. The event has changed somewhat since it started. Instead of a noisy, crowded bar, about 100 architects gathered in a hotel ballroom. A sponsor, Graphisoft Archicad, provided pens and drink coasters on which to draw. Some architects bemoaned the loss of napkins, which provide more space and can even be opened up for panoramic sketches. They were given four categories in which to compete: Best Partner Sketch (two people drawing together), Best Section of a Building, Best Elevation of an Interior or Exterior Building and Best Realistic 3-D Rendering. They had 10 minutes to create a drawing and pin their work to a bulletin board. If they wanted to make more drawings during that time, they could. They just had to be done within 10 minutes time. Three judges would determine the winners: Virgil Campaneria, AIA, and Lourdes Solera, AIA, both of Miami; and Amie Calisti, Associate AIA, of West Palm Beach. As the evening progressed and the libations flowed, the event grew more raucous. Architects tried to beat the clock. After running to pin up their drawing, theyd hover around the boards to see what their professional peers had created. Draw responsibly! Ms. Muriente cajoled them. There is no bribing of the judges, she told them at another point. No extra drinks! Some images showed an economy of line, while others were full of detail. Drawings were highly technical, whimsical, realistic or imaginary. One winning drawing showed the cross-section of a waterfall. Another, which seemed to be just a curvy line and an arrow, was actually a drawing of the back of a female nude. The judges declared the need for a new category: WTF. They also asked for submissions for Best Representation of Graphisoft. A Best in Show award was given to Don Yoshino, an accomplished artist as well as an architect, who received a $100 gift certificate from Graphisoft. He decided to pay it forward by holding DRAWFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYJudge Lourdes Solera selects an entry as a possible winner. Entries for the the Drink and Draw.

The winner would receive his $100 gift certificate. You could feel a shiver of excitement run through the room at this unexpected twist of events: the Drink and Draw wasnt over! There was yet another competition. Ten minutes later, Mr. Yoshino thoughtfully looked over the entries and chose the winner: a close-up of an eyeball. Drawing by hand takes you back to the first reason of why you want to become an architect, Ms. Muriente said at the end of the evening. And this is why we do this to remember that this is where we started, drawing by hand. Joyce Owens, Florida AIA president and principal of Architecture Joyce Owens, said architecture and the ability to sketch go hand-in-hand. If you cant draw the space that you imagine, you wont be a good architect, Ms. Owens said. Drawing is an architects opportunity to explore space, light and shade, structure and form, without restraint. And, its our most valuable communication tool, because it can inspire others with our conceptual ideas. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYEntries for the first three competitions in the Drink and Draw. Brian Gladden pins his drawing on the board. Judges Amie Calisti, Lourdes Solera and Virgil Campaneria start a discussion about the double meaning of an entry signed Picasso. Is it an arrow on a wall or a female nude? Sherryl Muriente, moderator of the contest and inventor of the game, explains the rules and keeps the group on task. Entries for the the Drink and Draw.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 10-16, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYJack Frost nipping at your nose and everything elseTheres no hell like being forced to socialize with people you dont like unless its being married to someone you cant stand Thats the fate of Debra, Nicky and Molly in Laboratory Theaters The Smell of the Kill. The three women are married to men who have been buddies since college. The couples get together monthly, rotating homes. Theyve been doing it for years. But the wives dont really like each other and have only the most superficial of relationships. And as for their husbands (who remain off-stage and are only heard, never seen) well, theyre condescending jerks who boss their wives around. Ones a control freak, checking on with his wife every two hours. Ones an adulterer, and the other is under indictment for embezzlement. Not exactly candidates for Husband of the Year. The embezzler, who likes to hunt and kill defenseless animals for sport, has just spent $8,000 on a meat locker in his basement. While showing it to his buddies, he and his friends accidentally lock themselves inside it. When the wives realize this, theyre faced with a dilemma: Do they get their husbands out, or do they let them freeze to death? The play by Michele Lowe got off to a bumpy start at Lab Theater. The women playing the wives each have a different hair color: platinum blonde, red and brunette, which makes you think the characters might be stereotypes too. Opening lines were hard to hear, as the characters clattered dishes and plates. (Some lines later on were also difficult to catch, as the audience was laughing and drowning them out. I trust the actors will learn to pause to accommodate the laughter.) The concept of having the husbands in the next room, calling out through a door that opened when they spoke, was also frustrating. The men sometimes sounded as if they were talking out of a tin can. It also wasnt totally clear what the men were doing: watching football or golf on the TV? Also practicing golf shots? But soon enough, the play found its feet, as the women bickered and sniped, then gossiped about each other whenever one of them left the room. The action all takes place in a big kitchen in a $1.2 million house in Winnetka, Ill. The set by Michael Eyth is one of the Lab Theaters more accomplished sets, complete with a refrigerator, stove and an island with a sink. (Though I wish the walls had been painted a more sophisticated color. If youd added more tables, it wouldve looked like the setting of a Mexican restaurant chain.) A more surreal kitchen wouldve been fun and fitting for this offbeat play. This dark comedy is light fare, but despite myself, I began liking these women, even though they are not totally likeable characters. Theyre wealthy and entitled and thoroughly shallow, but they have enough funny lines that I began to laugh. Consistently. The actresses definitely help elevate the material. Tera Nicole Miller plays Debra, a sophisticated real estate agent who looks down her nose at the other two, like a classic Hitchcockian blonde ice queen. Its entertaining to see her break down onstage. Jessica Walck is Molly, the ditzy wife whose face clouds when she has to think. Shes so moneyed that she thinks being poor means you have to drive a Ford Focus. Rounding out the trio is Lucy Sundby as Nicky, the wife of the embezzler and the evenings hostess. A new mother, shes competent, but shes also full of rage. And boy, is she full of surprises. Shes also the character Id most like to hang out with, though part of that might have to do with the fact that shes an editor. Director Carmen Crussard has cast this show well and despite the material, keeps the play more theatrical than sitcom-y. I wish she had smoothed out some of the plays rough edges, however, and made the mens dialogue clearer. As the evening wears on in this oneact play, the wine flows and more secrets are revealed. Will the women rescue the men, or will they just let them freeze to death? They discuss it. They argue vehemently. The Smell of the Kill is deliciously wicked. Im sure more than one husband in the audience slept with one eye open that night. Is it high theater? No. Did it make me laugh? Yes. And you cant argue with that. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Smell of the Kill>> When: Through Aug. 26 >> Where: Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $27 ($12 for students) >> Info: 218-0481 or www.laboratorytheaterorida.com COURTESY PHOTOTera Nicole Miller, Lucy Sundby and Jessica Walck star in Smell of the Kill as women who share a growing disdain for their husbands.

The story is thin and the action is decent; too bad for Halle Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. Rated R.Lady Macbeth (Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie) An unhappily married woman (Ms. Pugh) in mid-1800s England has an affair with a groundskeeper (Mr. Jarvis) and will stop at nothing to keep it going. The story is dark and twisted, but the real revelation is the emergence of Ms. Pugh, who is superb. Rated R.Atomic Blonde (Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella) British Secret Agent Lorraine (Ms. Theron) is sent to Berlin in 1989 to retrieve a list of secret agents thats fallen into the wrong hands. The story is too complex for its own good, but the action scenes 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).War for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Mr. Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Mr. Harrelson). Thats right: Caesar only wants revenge on one guy, so theres not much war here at all. Its one of the many letdowns in this third part of the new Apes trilogy. Rated PG-13.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton) Spider-Man (Mr. Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Mr. Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor and a winning performance from Mr. Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13.

With Guest Chef Special Guest Appearance By: Mike Anderson of Daniel Cohn Wines LATEST FILMSThe Nut Job 2: Nutty By NatureIs it worth $10? NoThe Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature is not just atrocious, its insulting to the human race. Literally. The only decent humans in the film are the cops in the end; everyone else seems to come straight from hell. Somewhere I feel like the filmmakers are laughing at the poor schleps who pay money to see their species get endlessly derided for 91 minutes. Its so egregious that even mans best friend, a dog, sides with life in the wild over the safety of domesticity. In the 2014 original, Surly the purple squirrel (Will Arnett) spent most of the movie gaining access to a nut store. By the end he and his kind enjoyed free and complete rein to an endless supply of nuts, so all was well. At the start of The Nut Job 2, the store blows up. Easy come, easy go. Now forced to scrounge for food in the park once again, Surly and his rat friend Buddy (Tom Kenny) soon have bigger problems: The evil mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to destroy their home and build an amusement park in its place. The mayor is so comically over-the-top villainous that his daughter (Isabela Moner) is a nightmare, hes avaricious with a maniacal laugh, and he drives on the sidewalk during traffic jams, recklessly endangering all in his way.The animals, led by Surly and Andie (Katherine Heigl), fight back. They make life impossible for the construction workers, leading the mayor to call in a needlessly cruel exterminator (Peter Stormare). But lets pause here for a moment to grasp whats happening. The mayor, greedy as he may be, is trying to build something his citizens may enjoy. The animals are being displaced and are resisting the change, and director Cal Brunker has us siding with the animals even though we should be siding with the guy who wants to do a nice thing for us humans. It gets worse. The humans are odious throughout, but the damage and danger caused by the animals is nothing to laugh at (additionally, FYI, nothing in the movie is funny). Bulldozers topple over, an office trailer is destroyed, trucks are impossibly upended by a group of mice. All of these things endanger people who are just doing their jobs. I know, I know. The animals are endangered too. But two wrongs dont make a right. And I know, I know. Im talking about warped perspective in an animated film aimed solely at kids, and I seem to be taking it far too seriously. But the fact that this message is aimed at kids is why Im taking it so seriously. Children are impressionable and nave, and its not a stretch to think they could walk out of The Nut Job 2 thinking all animals are friendly and need to be protected and all humans are evil and up to no good. Neither is true. Worse, they could believe that taking any measures necessary to protect animals is okay as long as you stop people from doing bad things. The inherent subjectivity in this is not accounted for, which means the extremes depicted make this a dangerous message to send. Making it all worse is how tone-deaf writers Brunker, Bob Barlen and Scott Bindley are. At one point the animals joke about hollowing out and killing trees. Irony, anyone? Worse, pug Frankie (Bobby Cannavale) mentions teaching his puppies the skills they need to be competitive in the dog marketplace. For what? Frankie just chose to live in the wild, so what would his pups be in the competitive market for? Ive never seen a movie as blatantly anti-human as The Nut J ob 2: N utty By Nature. If the intention was a message of environmental protection, it gets woefully lost. Its not just bad, its derogatory to the very people who pay money to see it. Keep your integrity and avoid a movie thats giving you a middle finger. n t c a i t dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jackie Chan provides the voice of Mr. Feng, a Kung Fughting mouse; its his rst animated lm outside the Kung Fu Panda universe.

Will the show be back for another season? Ali F., The Villages, Fla.A: Ten new episodes of the TNT hit drama based on a series of books by Blake Crouch and starring the Downton Abbey begin at 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15. Michelle is thief and con-artist Letty Raines, whose life is always one wrong turn or one bad decision away from implosion. As the second season opens, Letty has patched things up with Javier (Juan Diego Botto) and reconciled with her mother, Estelle (Lusia Strus), who had long stood in the way of Letty getting custody of Jacob (Nyles Steele). On the run from FBI Agent Rhonda Lashever (guest star Ann Dowd), Letty, Javier and Jacob are heading for a new life trying to be normal. But the more Letty and Javier try to create a normal life, the more things go awry. Their attempt to build a better future for Jacob soon proves futile when something more dangerous than the FBI catches up with them: the past. Q: I keep hearing talk about another season of Arrested Development, but I cant get any confirmation. Do you know whats going on? Linda R., via emailA: We are indeed going to get a new season of the cult-hit niche comedy. Series star Jason Bateman (who plays Michael Bluth) recently tweeted that the cast will be back in production in August. Of course, it took a little while to align busy shooting schedules because of everyones other projects, but the next season is finally coming together. I am happy to report that season five, with 17 episodes and the full original cast, will return to Netflix sometime in 2018.

The Hours: Monday-Saturday, open at 5:30 p.m. The Menu: www.imtapas.com The Details: Youre transported to a cozy Barcelona bistro, perfect for enjoying all the traditional flavors, elegance and passions of Spain, when you enter IM Tapas. Nestled in the heart of Naples, this true insiders secret is both intimate restaurant and art gallery. Flamenco and jazz caress your thoughts as you savor the warm bread and piquillo pepperhummus dip. Start with artichoke hearts filled with Serrano ham and Manchego cheese, luscious spinach or salt cod croquettes, Jamn de Bellota, paellas, seared octopus or a skewer of Moroccan spiced pork tenderloin. I love the exquisite panko-crusted zucchini flowers filled with melted goat cheese and shallots. But my fave is the 8-ounce Pennsylvania Peking duck breast, served medium rare and perfectly charred, with caramelized fig and a sprig of flashfried basil that melts like snow on your tongue. Pair this with a glass of Antidoto Tempranillo or Domaine Serene Pinot Noir and savor every drop of the ruby red port reduction. One More Thing: Finish your meal at IM Tapas with crema Catalana with a touch of orange rind and cinnamon, coffee flan baked by the chefs mom or a fresh baked tarta de Santiago.

Instead, however, its a place you wind up raving about. This sparkling new, well-designed establishment just east of Collier Boulevard and slightly north of Immokalee Road offers stellar service and an inventive menu thats artfully executed and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is somewhat modern but in no way resembles a warehouse. Start with the complimentary valet parking, which is the first thing you see when you pull into the ample parking lot of the standalone restaurant. The lot isnt that large that most people cant park and walk themselves, but its nice if you cant or if its raining. Inside, a smiling hostess is ready to greet you. No reservation? No problem, although they will insist on getting your name and phone number in case you leave your glasses or a credit card behind. (And who hasnt done that at least once?) We requested a booth and were led to a cozy one on one side of a wine chiller, which afforded us some privacy as well as comfort. The seats are nicely padded and, it turns out, so are the undersides of the tables, which helps absorb sound in a building that has few soft surfaces. Its a clever way to tamp down the noise, which otherwise has a tendency to bounce unpleasantly from wall to wall making it difficult to converse. Our server, Kaylee, greeted us swiftly and was happy to give us the brief intro to the restaurant. We learned that it opened about two months ago go, and everything is made from scratch. Then she went over the specials to help us in deciding what we wanted to drink. The wine list isnt extensive, but whats there has clearly been chosen with care. There was nary a white zin to be seen, but those who like a light white will fare well with a pinot gris or sauvignon blanc. We settled on a bottle of Ponzi pinot noir ($49) from Oregons Willamette Valley and were happy when it was delivered lightly chilled, as it should be, especially in the midst of this ungodly hot summer. The wine was a fine accompaniment to my companions smoked shrimp cocktail ($14.50), a long plate of shrimp served with cocktail sauce and lemon, and my appetizer called Tims broccoli toast ($11). The shrimp had a pleasantly smoky flavor, as did the cocktail sauce. A spritz of the lemon added a sweet citrus note to the dish. The toast is somewhat difficult to describe. The toast was at the bottom of the bowl and had absorbed a fair amount of sauce, rendering it soggy. On top was sheeps milk feta, white wine, broccoli rabe and a fried egg. The tender-crisp broccoli and the creamy cheese and egg were a good combination. I skipped the sogged-out toast, which served more as a foundation than an ingredient. We split a beet salad ($12.50) and were happy we did when we saw the size of the half portion. Watercress, midnight moon goat cheese, pears, candied almonds, golden beets and a delicate lemon yogurt vinaigrette combined to form a fresh, flavorful salad. While there are large-plate entrees, we were more interested in the smaller plates as that allowed room for sampling the appetizers and salad (and, of course, dessert). From the Ravioli Revolution section of the menu (it appears chef Bobby Forget never met anything he didnt want to stick into a ravioli) offered Buffalo chicken, Philly cheesesteak, four cheeses, crab cake or wild mushrooms tucked into house-made pillows of pasta. The mushroom rendition filled with enoki, shiitake, trumpet and oyster mushrooms along with ricotta, thyme and a light Madeira cream might not have been as colorful as some of the other dishes, but the wonderful umami flavor of the mushrooms shone through. We left not a drop. Also delicious was the duck confit flatbread ($14.50), a well-made crust topped with tender pieces of duck, roasted wild mushrooms, queso, caramelized figs, shaved onions and Pecorino Romano cheese. We also enjoyed a side of the housemade pickles ($4), which started out sweet and ended with a subtle heat. We were unable to agree on a dessert to share. I tried the espresso molten cake ($8) with a scoop of ice cream. The cake was warm with a soft, chocolatey interior that went well with the cool ice cream. My companions beignets ($6.50) were little fried nuggets of cinnamon-sugarcoated heaven, served with chocolate ganache for dipping. After-dinner drinks of a tiramisu (Patron tequila caf liqueur and Rumchata) and Larrys espresso (espresso vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, grand Marnier and Cointreau) went splendidly with both desserts. Service was exemplary from start to finish. Knowledgeable, friendly and attentive, our server kept an eye on us without hovering, kept our wine and water replenished, made sure we had what we needed and got rid of what we didnt (dirty plates). She checked when we had a question about the menu she couldnt answer. The server attendants and manager (who I think might be an owner) were equally gracious. The Warehouse might not sound like the name of great restaurant. But in this case, it is. Tims broccoli toast consisted of an unusual group of ingredients but was well worth trying. Ravioli is an art form here. This version contained an assortment of wild mushrooms topped with a light Madeira cream sauce.

DWAYNE BERGMANNWhether hes working with colors, fabrics or textures, Dwayne Bergmann thinks outside the box to create spaces that are uniquely suited to his clients. Chic and sophisticated, with a hint of whimsy, spaces bearing Mr. Bergmanns distinctive stamp always go bold. Luxe Livings Michael Korb talked with him about his craft. Q: Is there a moment you can look back on that was the moment you decided you wanted to be an interior designer? A: Ive always loved designing and creating. I have been creating somewhat professionally all the way back to the fourth grade, when I was hired to decorate cakes after several people saw the cakes I had entered into the Missouri State Fair as part of my 4-H projects. I think it was then that I first realized I was blessed with a creative gift that not everyone possessed. Q: Is there a Dwayne Bergmann look? If so, how do you describe it? A: Our designs are the reflection of our clients personalities. We strive to create interiors that are meaningful to each of them and not about our own design aesthetic. That said, we do not shy away from mixing textures, patterns and bold colors, which is something that does set our designs apart from others in our profession.Q: What were you doing before you started designing full-time? A: I was running a division for HD Supply wholesale products 26 direct reports and a large budget along with hefty annual goals to meet. Q: Whats the first thing you ask clients when you meet with them?SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 isnt afraid to take chances RICK BETHEM / COURTESY PHOTOMAUREEN EDWARDS / COURTESY PHOTODESIGNER Q&AA master suite with soft, warm tones and the right pops of color is a great place to begin and end each day.

4 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY A: I always want to know how my clients wish to feel in their homes. What makes them most comfortable and what makes them feel the most confident is what is important to me. For some, this means an environment filled with luxe finishes rivaling the most decadent hotel or spa one can imagine. Others want casual and comfortable, and others yet want midcentury Mad Men or Miami modern. For all of our clients, though, my goal is that they get to live in an environment they never dreamed possible. Q: Is there a current trend that you are excited to see taking place in interior design? A: I am not a major trend follower. I prefer to think we are on more of the trend-setting side of design. Most of the trends making their way through mainstream retail today involve matte finishes with deeper tonality and mixed mediums. We have been utilizing these techniques over the last few years. I believe the future lies in bold, luxurious textures and finishes. Refinement and attention to detail will continue to prevail as minimalism continues to overcome traditionalism.

8 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentLiving in a high-rise condominium offers some serious perks. Among them: amazing views, luxurious amenities and a fabulous lack of responsibility. And for Karen and Bill Bucy, who moved from Austin, Texas, to Naples in 2003, it was the ideal lifestyle. Their 2,700-square-foot residence in Bonita Bay certainly made living easy. Until, in 2009, they added Bichon Frise pups Sofi and Elli to the family. Things seemed fine at first. Puppies and parents were handling things swimmingly. But eventually, the fact that they were traveling up and down the elevators four and five times a day drove home the understanding that for these two dog owners, high-rise living was for the birds. For a lot of people in the condos, its their second or third home or a vacation place, says Mrs. Bucy. But for us, it was our only home. And there was a long walk from the garage to the elevator and from the elevator to our place. I was getting tired of that. I just wanted to get back to a house. Then she spotted a house for sale. Though the location was great (it overlooks the 18th fairway of Bonita Bays Marsh golf course), the Bucys didnt particularly care for how the house looked or how it was laid out. It was, in a word, dated. So they decided to tear it down and build new. They contacted Mark Smith, president of Harwick Homes, and together they reached out to Weber Design Group, where the Bucys selected an existing plan and tweaked it a lot. The finished product you see on these pages is a lovely three-bedroom (plus den), 3-bath transitional contemporary that has the owners stamp of approval throughout its 3,215 square feet. In fact, Mrs. Bucy handled interior design duties herself. Inside we have super clean lines, she says. I didnt do crown molding on purpose because I wanted that clean How two pups persuaded their owners to leave the high life behindAbove: Clean lines and Asian touches throughout help de ne the contemporary feel of the interior. The baby grand piano has followed the owners from home to home, even though it hasnt been played in years. (It does, however, get tuned each year just in case.) Inset: So and Elli wait patiently in a bedroom that has been out tted as their grooming salon. On the cover: Custom-cut Richmond Stakledge stacked stone sourced in Wisconsin adds a dramatic air to the entrance of the 3,215-square-foot home.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com AUGUST 2017 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORY AMBER FREDERIKSEN / COURTESY PHOTOSlook. Outside I think of it as contemporary, but not Frank Lloyd Wright. I knew I wanted the stonework. It took a long time to find the exact stone I wanted, and then it wasnt in the right size. Fortunately, the folks at Harwick Homes said they could cut the stone to any size she wanted. She had the stone, a Richmond Stakledge from Wisconsin, cut into 1-inch layers for a nice, clean, dry-stack look that gives an impressive air to the front entrance. The stone is continued inside, where it bookends the living room media wall. I wanted the open concept, says Above: Wide-plank oak ooring helps tie the spaces together and is more durable than the cherry ooring the owners previous condo had. Thats a welcome relief when you have two dogs running around and guests who might wander in with sand or crushed shells on the soles of their shoes. Right: The kitchen opens onto the main living area and has cabinets that open garage-style, a single-level island and a backsplash of natural stone tiles. Bichons So and Elli approve. SEE PET PROJECT, PAGE 10
Mrs. Bucy. In the high-rise the kitchen was not open to the family room, so I wanted the kitchen to be open to everything. And we didnt want a living room anymore because weve gone from house to house to house over the past 30-some-odd years and the living room furniture was never touched. Another important feature for the couple was the large covered lanai and the screened-in pool area that helps keeps the Bichons safe.I know a lot of new homes dont do the cage anymore, says Mrs. Bucy, but between the golf balls and the alligators and other critters, its the right thing for us.The side-loading garage was also on the wish list because it would allow for a fenced-in front yard, again for the dogs. Walking through the front entrance gives guests a dramatic look across the expansive living space and out back to the outdoor living area, pool and golf course beyond. In fact, Harwick Homes pushed out the space at the foyer to accommodate the baby grand piano that has followed the Bucys from home to home (although Mrs. Bucy admits it hasnt been touched since they got the dogs). Wide-plank oak flooring throughout ties the spaces together beautifully and is much more durable than the cherry wood flooring the couple had in their condo. Interestingly, the Bucys had just redesigned the condo kitchen and baths before deciding to sell, so they knew what they wanted in the new house and used many of the same surfaces and finishes. I knew I wanted the big island and I wanted it level at counter height, Mrs. Bucy says. Its just more conducive for parties and things if everyone is at the same level. And the cabinetry is a European style that opens like a garage door. You can leave it open and no one is going to walk into it. As for the rest of the house, virtually all of the furnishings came from the condo and/or from Austin. We kind of built the house around some of the furniture, says Mrs. Bucy. (Though that might not be true for one of the guest bedrooms its missing bedroom furniture altogether, as its used as a grooming space for the dogs.) This breed requires constant grooming, Mrs. Bucy explains about the dogs. I do a trim once a month, a bath every week, we brush every day. Its a labor of love. Add the fact that long elevator rides are a thing of the past and the Bucys and their canine companions can now walk straight into the house from the garage, and its safe to say theres plenty of love to go around.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com AUGUST 2017 LUXE LIVING 13 BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen you first walk through the doors of Summerfields, you get a sense that interior designer Shari Summers, ASID, knows a thing or two about how we should all be designing our homes. The space is broken into four areas that give visitors a sense of what colors and accessories work together, whether it be with wallpaper or paints. We try to set things up for different palettes so that every palette is accessible, Ms. Summers explains. Theres something for everybody. And while many people enter the store in the market for home goods, furnishings and accessories (bedding, lamps, etc.), it also offers a wide array of gifts. When youre looking for an unusual gift item, we probably have it, says Ms. Summers. It might be a fun game to give as a hostess gift, something whimsical for a child (or someone young at heart) or a lovely coffee table book. We only stock a few books at a time that catch our eye and that we think are valuable reads, she says. Ms. Summers worked for another design firm for 13 years before heading out onto her own in 1996. She opened the store in 1998. At that time it was on Fifth Avenue South, but Summerfields has been at its current Central Avenue location since the mid-2000s. The impetus for opening the store was that it was really, really difficult to provide all the furnishings, including accessories, to finish off our jobs, Ms. Summers says. It was hard to shop in Naples for those things. We decided to open this shop so we could supply the gamut of home furnishings. The shop and the design business go very hand-in-hand. With that said, the inventory is a terrific mishmash of items that come from many different suppliers. Were not like a big furniture store where you see this chest on the floor and you want to buy it and there are 10 more in the warehouse, she says. We try to make it so that everything is a little more special. When we find something, we dont overload on it. But thats not to say shoppers cant count on Summerfields keeping a few special items in stock. For example, the store represents east coast artist Kelly Tracht, who creates original acrylic paintings that capture the Florida vibe in the most whimsical ways imaginable (she also does prints, giclees and decorative pillows). The store also carries jewelry by Julie Vos and has a delightful line of candles that are named after Naples locations, such as Naples Pier, Naples Cottage, 34102, etc. We try to keep it kind of local because you want to remember where you are, Ms. Summers says. And you get that sense the moment you walk through the door.

TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Though the store is clearly an interior designers happy place, Summerfields also has an array of things that make perfect gifts. Thoughtful shoppers can find unusual books, fun games and even a line of candles named for landmark places in Naples.
14 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYAMBER FREDERIKSEN / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentNot everything in Naples was originally faux Italian. Some homes were a passable sense of s generic that almost defied categorization. Witness this Bonita Bay Hidden Harbor gem, which just needed to be polished to find its charm. The four-bedroom, 3-bath, 3,500-square-foot (under air) home was built in 1994. The current owners purchased it in 2008. Hailing from Arizona, the couple has a significant collection of Native American art they wanted to showcase in a manor befitting its origins. So they hired interior designer Amy Coslet from Collins & DuPont to reimagine the space with the art in mind. The goal was to design the whole space to highlight their beautiful art collection, says Ms. Coslet. That was the inspiration. They showed me all of the artifacts and told me the more important pieces they wanted displayed. And we customized display areas specific for certain pieces. Their collection which spans everything from pottery to basketry to weaponry, tapestries and beaded clothing is worthy of a whole-house remodel. One of the biggest things they collect is woven Navajo blankets, which we hung and highlighted as artwork, adds Ms. Coslet. The blankets also set the tone for much of the coloring used throughout the home. The color palette and also the patterns are very bold and graphic, the designer says. We incorporated that in some of the fabrics we used. There are a lot of earthy tones and some terra cottas, and some of the basketry has bright, primary colors, so it was important to do a more neutral background. Ms. Coslet and her team lightened all the walls and focused on clean lines with the furnishings, adding pillows and accessories to compliment the color palette. The strategy lets the artwork stand on its own. Conveniently, there werent a lot of structural changes that needed to be done on this makeover. The home already was an open-concept design with good bones, so the only major change was shortening a wall in the kitchen and raising a few ceil-Collecting evidenceA Hidden Harbor renovation showcases Native American artAbove: In the breakfast nook, a treasured Navajo blanket dominates a wall and a customdesigned light fixture gives off a deliberate teepee vibe.

ings to gain some extra height. That left designers free to focus on things such as custom built-ins and a linear fireplace set in a stacked-stone wall in the living room. Ms. Coslet also designed all of the light fixtures, which are forged metal that blend rustic with modern. Some have leather strapping, others incorporate burlap. But the most entertaining is over the breakfast nook and was inspired by a teepee. The adjoining kitchen was completely gutted and made to be very clean and linear, again melding the subtle tones of the artwork, without competing for attention. Now the home is the perfect case in which to cherish the treasures gained over a lifetime of collecting.
