While tragedies such as this may get our attention, theyre doing little to stem the increase in recreational boating accidents. In June, the U.S. Coast Guard released its annual report on recreational boating accidents, and the news wasnt good. From 2015 to 2016, the number of boating accidents nationally has increased by 7.3 percent, injuries by 11.1 percent and deaths by 12 percent.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYA little each week, or twoMy pickup was red, not green like the 1957 Dodge Power Wagon with a 90 horsepower, 230 cubic centimeter, flathead six-cylinder engine my Colorado ranching uncles still owned, the only truck I ever admired. Instead, mine was made by International Harvester in 1959 It had six cylinders too, upwards of 150,000 miles on the odometer, and somewhere in the vicinity of 120 horsepower, giving it a capacity for speed that produced a blazing 61 mph if you had a slightly downward slope and a few days to get there. Running it above 50 even on a gentle incline was almost impossible. This was 1972 in Douglas County, Kansas, where the rolling hills of the eastern prairie vaguely resemble the Lake Wales ridge country in central Florida. My girlfriend, Eva, had decided to go into natural living with me. So we bought the truck for $200 from an old farmer. Then we found another old farmer who would let us garden in his rambling corrals, plotting out 120 feet by 50 inch soil enriched from decades of cow manure. We grew potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes, corn, pole beans, peas, spinach, lettuce, squash, peppers and a few watermelons the whole shebang. That farmer, Burt Wilson, was a Cherokee Indian adopted about 1905 from a Kansas orphanage by the postmaster of Lawrence, whose name happened to be Roger Williams. Thats all it took. The coincidence of names got us a carte blanche opportunity to work one of the tidiest farms in eastern Kansas, neatly tucked into 450 acres of Wakarusa River bottomland. We grew hundreds of pounds of produce, never anticipating either the size of the harvests or the hard work it would take while we were going to college about 10 miles to the north, in Lawrence. Our friends, though, appreciated the food. So did we. And we loved those soft summer evenings in the fields: the cacophonous cricket symphonies performed spontaneously from stands of black oaks. The air above the valley floor settling sweet with the whispered promise of days-end cool. Fireflies sparking above the garden and across the road into the trees, while dusk slipped away west into night and Colorado. We never considered that all of it, for us, depended on that old pickup. And we never considered that the old pickup depended on roads built for its use; on the full-service gas stations that pocked the American countryside then; on oil wells stretched back from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and the Americas into North Africa; on ships that transported the oil, on ports where it was offloaded and moved out, on the refineries that prepared the oil, and finally on the railroads, highways and transports that carried gasoline to the service stations. All of which created an elaborate system of economics of international dependencies neither of us would ever have been able to explain. We were a little too proud of ourselves in those days for living simply and (as we viewed it) self-sufficiently. In truth, we werent. The truck had a covered back so you could either sleep in it or haul tools and vegetables without getting wet, both of which we did. In addition, it got as much as 18 or 20 miles per gallon when gasoline was running 31 cents or so at the pumps. Thats important. Volkswagens produced in the late 1950s and s could get up to 50 miles per gallon, sometimes, but they were almost the only foreign-made cars you saw on the road. American-made cars and trucks did a nice unapologetic eight, 10 or 12 mpg, for the most part. Unbeknownst to Eva and me (we thought we were rugged individualists), wed embarked on typical 20th century American lives. Our century, the 20th, was distinguished not just by world wars and social change, but by the sounds of internal combustion engines and the sight of pole-strung wires connecting every town and almost every home in the United States and western Europe. We used resources (in this case fossil fuels) like there was no tomorrow. So did everybody else we knew. That fact to me that reality suggests the ultimate dependency, one far exceeding the dependencies of a mere international economy. Why? Because were still doing it now and now all of us know what were doing. Now, weve become a conscious and willing part of a rising tsunami of resource exploitation by humans. Our human tsunami is distinct from the Earths cycles of change in geology, geography, weather and biology that have unfolded since the planet was created four billion years ago. But this tsunami doesnt exist in a vacuum, by itself. In fact, its an accelerant. So the more we drive, or the less we drive electric or gas-saving vehicles, the more we have to accept blame for the horrific consequences our children will inherit. What can we do? The answer is, a little each day. And thats not hard. Plan to drive a little less: Make one shopping trip instead of two or three in a week. Buy locally produced foods that dont have to be shipped great distances, requiring heavy participation in the tsunami. And plan to vote. Vote for the candidates who take the tsunami seriously and look for ways to hobble it, to slow it, to break it up and inhibit it. One other thing, too: recycle, like my cousin, Mike. I no longer have my old IH pickup. But Mike still has and operates the Dodge Power Wagon, now 60 years old this fall. He drives it just a little each day. Or week, or two. o K L R roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONI shot the sheriffEveryone remembers when candidate Donald Trump boasted he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his supporters would shrug and vote for him anyway. It was a claim to arrogance few would dare. As it turned out, he was right. That conceit followed him into the White House. He has since put his brag to the test on multiple occasions. So far, there is little evidence his aberrant behaviors have imperiled his popularity among his hard-core supporters. Candidate Trump, by his faux supposition of homicide, already imagined he was above the rule of law. Six months into his administration, he imagines he is the law. I thought about this when his speech at the Boy Scouts Jamboree last month went viral. He spoke campaign-style. His audience was a crowd of 40,000 young boys on the cusp of puberty and the threshold of becoming adults. He treated the occasion as if it were a political rally and his audience were old enough to vote. It was jarring to see how easily the uncorrupt spirit of thousands of adolescent boys could be sullied by Trump, in full view of their Scout mentors, protectors and parents. It happened in the blink of an eye, if only temporarily. But dont blame the Scouts. It is Trump who deserves the credit. He is a master manipulator. What happened that afternoon was the induction of young people into Trump doctrinaire. The moment deserves a place in the political Hall of Shame. The president proved yet again he can target the unsuspecting in a crowd, take aim, pull the rhetorical trigger and kill innocence without any expectation he will be punished for his crime. It happens again and again. The visceral cheers erupt right on cue from the dark and hidden place surviving in the lizard brains of people you wouldnt think would succumb. But they do. The president smiles, walks away, satisfied with the damage done and he is no worse for the wear. After six months in office and firing away indiscriminately, his approval ratings among Republicans still stand at about 80 percent. Trump knows this and gloats in the power of his supporters unconditional love. It enables him free rein and to act without accountability for his moral transgressions. He is always on the prowl for new converts to the dark side, even among Boy Scouts. The presidents tactic is to go after the least common denominator in his audience. And there always is one. He has unerring accuracy on judging his mark. His ammo is a provocateurs tease. The man blows smoke better than a sideshow barker. Everyone wants to go into the tent and see the boneless baby. Adolescents are vulnerable to seduction by bad boys and bad-boy behavior. Which is why so many adults devote themselves to Scouting. Their mission is to mold, mentor and prepare young boys for the rigors of leadership and the challenges of adulthood. Scouting is aspirational toward a more conscientious, responsible and productive society. It doesnt include merit badges for mastering the art of bullying or metaphorically shooting someone just because you can. Thats Trumps standard for meritorious conduct. He role modeled at the Jamboree what many perceived as egregiously un-scout-like behaviors. Afterward, Boy Scouts of Americas chief executive, Michael Surbaugh, apologized to Scouting families offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the Jamboree. It was never our intent. But good intentions dont count with this president. In the weeks before the Scouts controversy, the president went gunning for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In May, he took aim, first firing FBI Director James Comey, because of the Russian thing, i.e., the FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Because Sessions acted as a campaign surrogate for candidate Trump, he recused himself from the investigation. The president went bonkers. It wasnt that he thought Sessions had no choice. He thought Sessions had made the wrong choice. In his view, the rule of law that no one is above the law does not apply to him. He is the law. There is a constitutional crisis lurking behind that assertion. But know Robert Mueller, the Justice Department Special Counsel investigating the Russian thing is in the presidents crosshairs, too. The president has an I shot the sheriff ambition. It is sending cold chills down Americas spine. The month of July was capped off by the remarks the president made before a gathering of police officers. He casually suggested police should not be too nice to their suspects. He said giving suspects rough treatment was OK by him. The cops applauded and laughed at the presidents dark exhortation. But no one else laughed who understands police brutality is not a joke most especially not the officers who put their lives on the line every day and who work hard to do the right thing, according to the rule of law. It is the way justice is supposed to work in America. Leslie Lilly writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy.

The loaded description, widely used in the press and on social media, is symptomatic of the pearl-clutching over the memo, which questions the premises and effectiveness of Googles diversity policies. The document was meant before getting splashed on the internet as an internal conversation-starter. The author posits that innate differences between the sexes may account for the disparity between men and women in the male-dominated world of high-tech. He states repeatedly that he believes in diversity, and theres no reason to doubt his self-description as a classical liberal. His exclamation-point-free memo is hardly a rant. He expresses the hope that open and honest discussion with those who disagree can highlight our blind spots and help us grow. How naive. The witless and inflamed reaction to his document instead underlines his point about a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence. It is one thing to disagree with the memo; it is another thing to believe the views therein should be forbidden. Former Google engineer Yonatan Zunger says that if it were up to him, the author would be summarily fired and escorted from the building immediately by security (you cant take a chance with such a danger). Entrepreneur Elissa Shevinsky believes that the memo could run afoul of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act i.e., it might be illegal. Googles diversity officer, Danielle Brown, didnt quite go that far. She offered a pro forma assurance that different views are welcome at Google. Nevertheless, she stipulated the opinions of the author are incorrect and added, ominously, that any discussion needs to be in accord with our Code of Conduct, policies, and anti-discrimination laws. Her case would have been much stronger if she had re butted any of the authors statements about sex differences assuming that she could. Sex differences are value-neutral. As the publication Stanford Medicine notes: Women excel in several measures of verbal ability pretty much all of them, except for verbal analogies. On the other hand, men have superior visuospatial skills. Which is better? It depends on whos asking, and why. Women tend to be better with people, men with things. Is either of those superior? Women tend to put more emphasis on family, men on their status. Does that speak better of women or men? As the Google author cautions, Many of these differences are small and theres significant overlap between men and women, so you cant say anything about an individual given these population level distributions. In light of these differences, though, it is foolhardy to expect 50/50 gender parity in professional life, and otherworldly to believe such differences dont have a role in the predominance of men in, say, software engineering. Obviously, the field should be open to women, and Neanderthal behavior in the workplace should be stamped out. But a company that believes implicit bias accounts for gender imbalances must be allergic to certain inconvenient facts. The Google author raised them, and paid the price.

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida is abuzz preparing for its annual Honeybee Hoopla coming up Saturday, Aug. 19. In addition to fun and educational activities throughout the day, the hoopla includes a presentation at 1:45 p.m. by beekeeper Chris Fenstermaker. Kids 12 and younger get in free with a paying adult (up to four kids per paying adult). See the full schedule of Honeybee Hoopla activities at www.conservancy.org/ nature-center/family-fun-days. Bees are vital to many ecosystems; through pollination, they keep essential plants and flowers alive, as well as disperse seeds for wildlife to consumer. Mr. Fensetermaker, who earned a bachelors degree in agricultural operations and management from the University of Florida and works as the Conservancys maintenance coordinator, answers a few questions about he came to understand all the hoopla. Q: How did you learn your skills? Where did you become certified? A: My official beekeeper training is through the UF Honey Bee Research & Extension Lab. I am certified as an Advanced Beekeeper of the Master Beekeeper Program. Q: What is your favorite part about beekeeping? A: It gives me the opportunity to observe the characteristics of the individual honeybees, as well as characteristics and behaviors of an entire colony. I am continuously learning things that help me promote the importance of honeybees and other pollinators. Q: Where do you keep your bees? What kind of tools do you use?A: I keep my bees on five acres in Golden Gate Estates. A beekeeper needs a hive tool and a smoker, bee boxes, aka supers, frames that contain the beeswax foundation that they build their comb from, a bottom board and hive cover. A bee suit and veil one recommended for beginners.Q: How did you acquire your bees? A: In 2005, I came across a feral colony of European honey bees in a southern red cedar tree. I was aware of the importance of honeybees and the struggles that they endure. I purchased a few good books on beekeeping and the equipment necessary to house them I carefully transferred the feral bees to my bee boxes and was able to monitor the health of the colony and provide them with assistance to remain healthy. Q: How can we help protect the struggling bee population? A: One of the best ways is simple: plant more flowers and bee-friendly plants. COURTESY PHOTOBeekeeper Chris Fenstermaker
A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBARRON GIFT COLLIERA BARON OF AMERICAS MONEY CLASS FROM early in the 20th century, Barron Gift Collier fell in love with Southwest Florida and then transformed it. His name is all over the Southwest Florida map, literally. Collier County is named after him. So is Barron Collier High School in Naples and the Collier Inn on Useppa Island in Pine Island Sound. At one point, Mr. Collier owned 1.2 million acres of Florida, making him the states largest landowner. Where did his money come from? Advertising. He became a millionaire before 30 through the Consolidated Street Railway Advertising Company. Transportation was part of the make-up of this man who was born in 1873 in Memphis, Tenn. When he first arrived in the region there was no road connecting Fort Myers to Miami or Tampa. Mr. Collier became a staunch advocate of the Tamiami Trail, which he helped bankroll with millions of his own dollars. Fittingly, perhaps, for an advertising tycoon, he owned local newspapers back before TV and when radio was in its infancy. His stable of properties included The NewsPress and the Collier County News (which eventually became the Naples Daily News). He died in 1939, 28 years after visiting Useppa for the first time. EVERGLADES ROD & GUN CLUBTHE EVERGLADES ROD & GUN CLUB CAN BE traced back to the very first permanent settler in Everglades City, William Smith Allen. He arrived in 1873, back when the area was called Potato Creek. It was later renamed Allen River in his honor. Mr. Allen retired to Key West in 1889 and sold his land to George W. Storter Jr., a famed sugar cane grower. Mr. Storter would go on to open a trading post in 1892 and later acquired a post office called Everglade in 1895. He would entertain Northern guests in his home to hunt and fish. The property would eventually gain the s in its name, and Mr. Storters home eventually turned into the Everglades Rod & Gun Club. The hotel/cottages, seafood restaurant and marina constitute a slice of history in the swamplands. The property has been visited by five U.S. presidents FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Hoover and Nixon and celebrites from Burl Ives and Gypsy Rose Lee to Burt Reynolds, Sean Connery and Sally Field. The restaurant at 200 Riverside Drive is open every day from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dinner service will resume in October.

LEGACIESFrom page 1 CYRUS TEEDSINCE NORTHERNERS STARTED FLOCKING TO SOUTHWEST FLORIDA IN THE LATE 19TH century there has likely never been anybody else like Cyrus Teed, who moved to Estero in 1893. He didnt come for golf. Here is how author Lyn Millner began the preface of her 2015 book, The Allure of Immortality, An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet. In New York State in 1869 lived a charismatic man named Cyrus Teed, who believed he was a prophet. He was 30 when an angel came to him in a vision and told him he was chosen to redeem humanity. Mr. Teeds visions eventually brought him and devoted followers of a cult he founded called the Koreshan Unity to a chunk of land beside the Estero River. He had 123 followers in 1893 when they arrived in Lee County, which didnt yet have rail service to the outside world. The group eventually grew to about 250 members and Mr. Teed had plans to build a city of 10 million people on the Estero River. And you think traffic is bad now in season? Anyhow, things didnt exactly work out the way this prophet predicted. The cult shriveled in size after his death in 1908 at the age of 69. The last member died in 1982. But what Mr. Teed and his followers built remains. The Koreshan State Historic Site preserves the memory of one of Southwest Floridas most unusual transplants as well as many of the groups buildings. As Ms. Millner, a Florida Gulf Coast University associate professor of journalism, also wrote in her book: Cyrus Teed believed he was the prophet Cyrus from the Old Testament, and he called himself Koresh, the Hebrew transliteration of Cyrus. We can also call him a Southwest Florida legend. N EDGAR WATSONO MURDER VICTIM IN SOUTHwest Florida is more famous than the famously foul-tempered Edgar Bloody Ed Watson, who was gunned down in Chokoloskee by his neighbors on Oct. 24, 1910. Why did his neighbors kill Mr. Watson? What compelled legendary author Peter Matthiessen to write four novels the first aptly titled Killing Mr. Watson about the legendary outlaw, who was likely the most feared man in the wilderness of Southwest Florida more than a century ago? Mr. Watson was just shy of turning 55 on that fall day when a dozen (or maybe more) men waited for him on the shore near where the Smallwood Store still stands to this day. They all feared Mr. Watson. They all knew he was tougher and smarter and a better shot than any of them. But there was strength in numbers. So they waited for him to come puttering to the shore in his little powerboat. Then they shot. All of them. Mr. Watson didnt get off a shot. He was likely dead before he plopped onto the sand. Decades later, starting when he was a teenager on vacation, Mr. Matthiessen became intrigued by the legend of the outlaw who fled the Wild West for the wilds of Southwest Florida. After writing three novels on Mr. Watson in the 1990s, the author combined them all into one revised 890-page novel titled Shadow Country. That was published in 2008 and earned the National Book Award all based on a man who by that time had been dead for nearly a century. The legend of Edgar Watson endures. Was he Floridas most prolific serial killer, murdering his workers on payday instead of paying them? What about those 50 skeletons unearthed on his property after a hurricane? Did he kill others, including a western outlaw woman Belle Starr out in Oklahoma? We do know that he once killed a man named Quinn Bass over a land dispute in Arcadia, back in the days when DeSoto County encompassed the area that would later be divided into Charlotte County in 1921. Mr. Watson claimed self-defense and was never tried due to a lack of witnesses. So where does the fable end and truth begin? From the Collier County News in 1954: Forty-four years ago on Chokoloskee Island, Monday, Oct. 24, 1910, 33 bullets ended the life of a mysterious man and left behind an even greater mystery, the greatest in all Collier County history. As Mr. Matthiessen wrote in an authors note in Killing Mr. Watson: All the rest of the popular record is a mix of rumor, gossip, tale and legend that has evolved into. myth. The legend lives on now 107 years since the Mr. Watson was killed in Chokoloskee.COLLIER
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 NEWS A11THELMA HODGESWHEN THELMA HODGES ARRIVED IN NAPLES in 1955, she was the third registered nurse to settle in the remote little town that would soon begin its transformation from a fishing village and off-thebeaten-track vacation destination to a cosmopolitan resort city graced with theaters, art galleries and fine restaurants. Oh, and hospitals and schools and parks and so much more. Mrs. Hodges and her late husband, Earl, not only witnessed that transformation, they helped make it happen as generous philanthropists over the decades. Mr. Hodges died in 2013 at the age of 86. Mrs. Hodges, now 89, continues her devotion to making the town she has happily called home for more than 60 years a better place for everyone who lives or visits here. BRIAN SHIMERBRIAN SHIMER MIGHT BE AS UNLIKELY AN American Winter Olympics medal winner in the bobsled as the mind can imagine. Mr. Shimer grew up in Naples, far from mountains and snow. He was an outstanding football player and wrestler at Naples High School hardly the training one would think would lead to 80-mph runs down an icy trail in a bullet-like sled. Defying all the climatological and geographical expectations, Mr. Shimer became an American Winter Olympic fixture, competing in five Winter Games and winning a Bronze medal in the four-man bobsled at the 2002 games in Salt Lake City. The first American to compete in five Winter Games, he retired after 2002 and now, at 55 years old, is head coach of the mens and womens national bobsled teams. So just how did Mr. Shimer go from high school wrestling and football in Naples to bobsledding around the world? Well, it was football. Mr. Shimer played collegiate football at Morehead State University in Kentucky. He was an outstanding running back and wide receiver. It was there that he learned American bobsled coaches were looking for fast and strong men who could start the bobsled on its way and then leap into the contraption as it began sliding down the runs. He joined the national team in 1985 and in 1988 competed in his first Olympics, in Calgary, Alberta. By 2002, he was a legend far beyond the shores of Southwest Florida. When American athletes from all the winter sports voted on who should carry our flag in the closing ceremony they elected an athlete who grew up far from snow and mountains: Naples native Brian Shimer. LESTER AND BILL PIPERON THE FLORIDA MEMORY WEBSITE, A SERVICE of the State Library & Archives of Florida, one can find a photograph of Lester and Bill Piper and Queenie from sometime in the 1940s. The brothers are squatting beside a cage at their Bonita Springs tourist attraction, the Everglades Wonder Gardens. And Queenie? Queenie is identified as a fullgrown Florida panther. This is how the Pipers are described: The Piper brothers, who know their panthers, will have no truck with Queenie outside her cage as they sometimes do with younger cubs raised in captivity. Queenie, who was captured alive when full-grown, apparently resents confinement and discourages fraternization. By the 1940s, the Pipers were already Southwest Florida legends. A page was devoted to them in a 1986 booklet titled The Beginnings of Bonita Springs, Florida. Author E.P. Nutting noted that the brothers were born in Ohio and that their attraction was initially called the Everglades Reptile Gardens when it opened in 1936, when the original inhabitants were alligators and crocodiles in concrete tanks and snakes in cages. Then they started adding other critters, including bears, deer and, well, panthers. What they started more than 80 years ago still stands in Bonita Springs, a touch of old Florida, a reminder of the wilderness this area once was. Although Lester and Bill are long gone, their vision of a tourist attraction devoted to wild animals remains. The Everglades Wonder Gardens is now a thriving nonprofit attraction that continues to entertain and educate legions of Southwest Florida locals and visitors. THE NAPLES PIERTHE NAPLES PIER HAS BEEN AN ICONIC PIECE of Naples lore for more than a century. The Gateway to Paradise opened in 1888 as a freight and passenger dock, connecting Southwest Florida to the rest of the world. Its reinvented itself several times over the years as a tourist destination and fishing hot spot. Withstanding nearly 130 years of scorching heat, tropical storms and beautiful sunsets, its home to countless memories for residents and tourists alike. The Pier underwent an extensive renovation several years ago, reopening in November 2015 with an entirely new Brazilian walnut surface. The city of Naples and the Naples Historical Society sold wooden pieces of the old pier surface, allowing Neapolitans to preserve a small piece of local history for themselves, plank by plank. On the Gulf of Mexico at the end of 12th Avenue South, the pier is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are restrooms and showers, a concession stand with covered eating area, beach supplies and volleyball nets on the beach. Fishing from the pier does not require a license. For information about parking, visit www.naplesgov.com. SMALLWOOD STORETED SMALLWOOD OPENED HIS TRADING POST IN 1906 in Chokoloskee as an outpost for getting goods and mail to pioneer settlers on the western fringes of the Everglades. Mr. Smallwood exchanged his goods with the locals for their hides, furs and farm produce. Still an outpost in the middle of nowhere, Smallwoods Store is now an historic treasure on the edge of the Ten Thousand Islands. The store was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. It closed for several years in the 1980s, but in 1990 Mr. Smallwoods granddaughter reopened it, this time as a museum, which is still run by relations of the original owner. A somewhat bizarre yet also charming mannequin of the original proprietors likeness occupies a rocking chair by the window. Shooting distance from where the notorious Edgar Watson was gunned down in 1910 (see below), this fascinating slice of old Florida at 360 Mamie St. in Chokoloskee is open for visitors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. Its a bit of a hike, but worth it. From Interstate 75, take Exit 80 south on SR29. Three miles south of Everglades City is Chokoloskee Island. Turn right at the four-way stop onto Chokoloskee Drive. Go one block to Mamie Street, turn left and follow the road to its end at Smallwoods Store, which is the southernmost point on the west coast of Florida. For more information, call 695-2989 or visit www.smallwoodstore.com. WSTANLEY HANSONHE WAS KNOWN AS THE WHITE MEDIcine Man, a Fort Myers resident who the native people of Florida knew they could trust. He literally spoke their language, learning Seminole and Miccosukee as a boy. Perhaps the best description of Mr. Hanson comes from a 1950 book by Allen Andrews, A Yank Pioneer in Florida. Mr. Andrews first met the White Medicine Man in 1906 and over the years got to know him well. This is from a chapter in that book devoted to Mr. Hanson and his dealing with the Indians: When they were hungry he fed them. When they were cold he furnished them bedding. When he learned of sick Indians in the wilds he drove many miles at his own expense to their rescue, bringing them to the hospital. If they recovered he took them back again to their camp and if they died he saw that they were decently buried. Altogether he was one of the most unselfish men that I ever knew. No wonder the Seminoles trusted him implicitly. His respect for them was enormous, as Mr. Andrews knew. In every respect Mr. Hanson claimed the Seminoles to be an exemplary people, Mr. Andrews wrote. They would not lie, steal or cheat; were kind and considerate and cared for their aged and indigent. ... Mr. Hanson had a job, one he needed to take care of his family and the Seminoles and Miccosukee. He was a tax collector and Lee County commissioner. But his primary passion was helping a people whose land was stolen from them generations earlier. In the 1920s he was part of a hardy band led by two Indians, Billy Cornapatchee and Assumahatchee, who blazed a trail through the Everglades so the Tamiami Trail could be built. W. Stanley Hanson, the White Medicine Man, died in his Fort Myers home in 1945. He was 62. W. Stanley Hanson HODGES SHIMER

InexplicableThe Adair family of Deerfield Beach was startled awake on July 15 by the sound of something meaty crashing onto their roof. When they investigated, they found two packages of Italian pork sausage in the side yard, and three more packages still on the roof. The sausages were in bags marked with the name of a land-clearing company in Alabama. Austin Adair called the company to inquire about the wayward sausages, but the guy had no idea what I was talking about and probably thought I was crazy, he said, and the mystery remains unsolved. I would love to know what really happened, said Jennie Adair, because its just so, so odd.The naked truth Summers are hot in Lawrence, Kan., and Christopher Steven Carlson, 34, took advantage of the warm temperatures on July 30 to stroll down a sidewalk in the busy college town in his birthday suit twice. Police first arrested Carlson around 2 p.m. in downtown Lawrence for indecent exposure, after which he paid his $500 fine and was released. He caught a taxi from the Douglas County Jail back to the downtown area, where he stiffed the driver, left his clothes in the car and resumed his in-the-buff constitutional. Local business owner Meg Heriford said: Our customers were not alarmed. It was more like, Hey, theres a naked guy. Nakedness does leave one a bit vulnerable, as Travis Tingler, 32, found out on July 16 as he stood unclothed outside his girlfriends house in Manitowoc, Wis., shouting and threatening to hurt the people inside. When police arrived, they tried and failed to get Tingler back into his pants, so they handcuffed him. As they struggled to put him in the police car, Tingler picked up a lighter off the ground, and a probe from an officers stun gun struck the lighter, igniting Tinglers chest and beard hairs. An officer was able to pat the fire out. Nudity, like everything else, is more fun when you can share it with friends. Or so it appeared to drivers along route A66 in Workington, Cumbria, in England, who spied four shame-faced men walking along the road wearing nothing but sneakers on July 30. The four protected their modesty with cupped hands and appeared to be walking quickly, according to Kathryn Lynn, 50, who drove by with her husband and daughter and snapped a photo of the odd group. It was a bit of a shock to see, she said.The continuing crisisOut of eight candidates for Detroit mayor in the Aug. 8 primary, half were convicted felons, the Detroit News reported. Three women and one man have convictions including gun crimes and assault with intent to commit murder. Black marks on your record show you have lived a little and have overcome some challenges, opined political consultant Greg Bowens. Michigan law allows convicted felons to vote and run for office unless they are currently incarcerated, or if their offenses are fraud-related or constitute a breach of public trust. None of the felons advanced to the general election.IroniesIn Green Bay, Wis., the Spartans of Vincent T. Lombardi Middle School wont be playing football this year because of a lack of coaches. Jim Van Abel, principal of the school named after the revered coach of the Green Bay Packers, told parents in a letter that the district had been advertising for coaching positions since April, to no avail. Student Alex Coniff said last year about 55 students played on the schools two football teams. (Interestingly, the district was also unable to provide a representative to be interviewed for the story.)The job of the researcherSexing certain species of turtles used to be an invasive process, sometimes requiring surgery on the little guy or gal. But Donald McKnight, a Ph.D. student at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, has perfected a method that speeds up the process and presumably pleases the shelled reptile. McKnight uses a vibrator to stimulate the underside of the turtle, which causes a male to reveal himself, sometimes in as little as 4 seconds. McKnight did his research in Oklahoma on threatened western chicken turtles.Readers choiceDilworth, Minn., police officer Brad Browning suffered a bout of bad luck on Aug. 2 after he pulled over a car with a burned-out headlight. The driver, Stephen Hietala, 27, of Perham, had a warrant out for his arrest. When officers tried to handcuff Hietala, he resisted, prompting one officer to fire his Taser, which missed Heitala and hit Officer Browning instead. Hietala took off running, with Browning chasing on foot. Soon a sheriffs deputy arrived with a police dog, but as Browning cornered Hietala in an alley, the dog bit Browning instead of the criminal. Officers finally arrested Hietala for fleeing a police officer and drug possession.Bright ideaIn Munich, Germany, Benjamin David has found a unique way to drown his commuting sorrows. He swims to work. When I was on my bike, I would yell at cars, David said. When I was on foot, I would yell at cyclists. ... Just a few metres to the side of (the road) is the (Isar) river, and if you just swim down that, its completely relaxed and refreshing. David stores his work clothes, laptop and mobile phone in a waterproof bag, and the rivers current sometimes allows him to float along his 1.2-mile route and enjoy the scenery including bystanders on bridges.

Reinaldo Lasanta-Garcia, DMDDental Care CentralCollier Library system organizes, integrates books from local jails SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Collier County Public Library system has partnered with the Naples Jail Center and Immokalee Jail Center to help digitize the jails book collections and integrate the books into the countys software. Inmates who want to borrow books will be considered patrons of the Collier County Public Library system, and the jails are now considered outreach branches of the library. The Naples jail has offered a library to inmates since the 1980s. Inmates designated as librarians took requests from other inmates written out on paper slips and tried to find books matching the genre, topic, author or title. Now the system will work exactly as it does at the local library, linking an inmates books to his or her jail ID number. We are so excited to give this opportunity to the inmates of Collier County, said Robin Eckenroth, Inmate Systems Bureau Manager. The automation of the inmate library will teach the inmates how to use the library system so they can continue their library services as they return to the community. The system will also allow jail staff to send out fines and notices if a book is not returned or comes back with damage. The books are now organized according to the Dewey Decimal System and will be easier to search. County staff organized the books recently through numbers and barcodes, and arranging them on the shelves. Of the 5,000 books in the jails collection, only half were in good enough condition to keep. The supply will soon be replenished, according to a Collier press release. The county libraries have long donated books to the jails. Members of the public can also chip in. To donate, bring paperback books to 2385 Orange Blossom Drive and mention that you want them to go to one of the jails.

The state leads the nation in boat ownership, with nearly 1 million registered vessels. Unfortunately, we also lead the nation in boating accidents and fatalities. Falling overboard, collisions with a fixed object and capsizing are the top types of accidents, with the primary cause of death being drowning. Does Florida have more boating accidents simply because it has more boats? That would provide a convenient explanation. But the statistics suggest otherwise. Minnesota and Michigan rank No. 2 and 3, respectively, behind Florida in registered vessels, yet those states dont even appear on the Top 11 list for boating accidents. California, which is ranked fourth in the number of registered vessels, comes in at No. 2 in accidents with 369 while Florida is nearly double that at 671. Clearly, the issue is not one merely of volume. This is further evidenced by the breakdown of boating accidents within the state. A whopping 64 percent of all boating accidents in Florida occur in only 11 counties. Ranked at fifth and seventh, respectively, are Lee and Collier, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the investigating agency on more than 85 percent of boating accidents. Charlotte is ranked 10th. Collier had 22,846 registered vessels with 31 accidents resulting in 20 injuries. Lee Countys 41,789 vessels saw 39 accidents with 29 injuries and six fatalities. The only bright spot is that the vast majority of boating accidents are preventable. Three culprits stand out as being the most significant: alcohol, ignorance and not wearing a life jacket.Booze, you loseAccording to the Boat U.S. Foundation, almost half of all boating accidents involve alcohol. The USCG adds that alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; where the primary cause was known, it was listed as the leading factor in 15 percent of deaths. In most states, the standards for determining whether an individual is intoxicated matches its state highway laws for operating a vehicle. According to In Florida it is illegal to operate a vessel with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 percent or higher. Having fewer vehicles on the water than on a highway does not make boating under the influence any less dangerous. Federal laws reflect that. Operating a boat while intoxicated is a federal offense, subject to a $1,000 fine. In addition, criminal penalties are as high as $5,000, and possible jail time. Boating under the influence laws are becoming more severe on a statewide level, as well. We do see a lot of alcohol use on the water, theres no secret to that, said Sgt. Bill Maymon, supervisor of the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office Marine Patrol. Being intoxicated on the water is worse than on land. Exposure to sun, wind and glare, the motion of the water, and the noise and vibration of your boats engine causes fatigue and can lead to boaters hypnosis, a condition that imitates being legally drunk. Add alcohol to these stressors, and youre mixing one dangerous cocktail. People go out and just want a good time, want to enjoy the water, but I dont think they realize that the wind, the sun, the heat all have an influence on you, Sgt. Maymon said. He compares boating to driving an automotive vehicle. You need to have a designated driver, he said. Theres no law about having an open container on a boat or consuming alcohol But there are laws that prohibit people from operating under the influence. However, a good number of sober boaters put themselves in danger even before or without alcohol.Ignorance is not blissFor one, drinking and being under the influence is always an issue with boat crashes, said Lt. Chris Nyce of the Lee County Sheriffs Office Marine Patrol. And two, just carelessness people not paying attention, excessive speed, people trying to pick other people up out of the water and maybe just not knowing their boat or how things operate on the water, not taking the weather seriously. The USCG discovered that 77 percent of deaths occurred on boats where the operator did not receive boating safety instruction. Only 13 percent occurred on vessels where the operator had received a nationally approved boating safety education certificate. Inexperience of the boats operator, excessive speed and the lack of knowledge of basic navigational rules are common causes of boating accidents, said USCG Master Capt. Dan Maruszczak. Education, time on the water at the helm and knowledge of your vessel inside and out are major factors in a new boaters chances of having an enjoyable and safe time while boating. Every new boater should consider online boating safety courses, classes at a U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary facility or an on-thewater class on their own vessel with a local U.S. Coast Guard licensed Master Captain. Several boating organizations offer classes that cover basic seamanship, safe boating and GPS use, as well as more advanced topics: FWC publishes a list of recommended boating safety courses in both classroom and online format at myfwc. com/boating/safety-education/courses. USCG Auxiliarys District 7, its largest, covers the state of Florida. Visit www.uscga-district-7.org, where you can also find a list of safe-boating classes. Links to District 22 of the United States Power Squadrons can be found at www.usps.org/localusps/d22/squadrons/index2.html. While the Marine Industries Association of Collier County doesnt offer boating courses, its organization, works with educators and safety organizations to educate the public to practice safe boating, according to the website (www.miacc.org). We support organizations that put on classes for boater safety and for the Coast Guard, said Tiffany Sawyer-Schenk, MIACCs executive director. We work with the CG closely to help promote their programs at our boat shows. We offer them space to come talk to people and try to help promote them as much as we can. Its one thing to get education on safe boating, but its quite another to actually use it.Life supportSometimes its not a lack of education but a lack of common sense thats the problem. Harry Julian, CEO of the maritime business Pure Florida, attributes a good number of boating accidents to poor seamanship and people not understanding whats out there. Not knowing about safe waters and navigation are how boaters get into trouble, he added. It leads to groundings, damage to props. Its all about awareness of your area. Local knowledge helps you sometimes more than electronic devices or GPS. We see a lot of people not being aware of their environment and how quickly it can change and they can get caught off guard. People take small boats out in conditions or places they shouldnt be. There was a flats boat that we found 35 miles off the coast that had absolutely no business being out there. They got caught by the weather. They followed us in, but if we hadnt been there, who knows what wouldve happened? Foul weather is bad enough. However, theres another issue that adds to the problem. The boat crashes that we have that are weather-related, you find, quite frankly, people with no life jackets on, Lt. Nyce said. According to the USCG, where cause of death was known, 80 percent of fatal boating accident victims drowned. Of those drowning victims, 83 percent were not wearing a life jacket. Ms. Sawyer-Schenk said the MIACC works with the Community Foundation of Collier County for the Kids Dont Float life jacket program to help get life jackets out on the beaches and around the parks where people are swimming. Occasionally well get a life jacket donation from Sea Tow, and well hand them out to kids that come to our boat show, she added. We always promote having life jackets on board at all times. Weve preached over the years to wear your life jacket, Lt. Nyce said in frustration. Weve tried that, and its beating a dead horse Im trying to preach to people to put them on if the weather looks like its turning bad. If you dont need it, perfect. If you need it, its on and you dont have to worry about it. However, even the strongest preaching doesnt necessarily save a lot of souls. So many boating accidents are preventable. If boaters are better educated, will they obey the laws and follow the safety measures that prevent injury and death from such accidents? Or will the numbers continue to climb? Its hard to say. U.S. road traffic deaths have increased for the second straight year. About half of those involved vehicle occupants who were not using a seatbelt, and nearly a third involve drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Its uncanny how those conditions echo those of boating fatalities. As Mr. Julian said, Its not just for that persons safety its for the safety of everyone out there.

SEE POSTURE, A19 Posture yourself for aging with strength and grace NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHSit up straight! This common request is probably how you first heard about posture. But posture isnt only about how well you sit. Its also about how well you move and go about your daily life and it can help or hurt your health over your lifetime, says George Salem, Ph.D., an NIH-funded researcher at the University of Southern California who studies how movement affects health and quality of life. Posture is not only about how well you sit, but how you hold yourself when youre not moving such as when youre sitting, standing or sleeping. This is called static posture, Mr. Salem says. Dynamic posture is how you position your body while youre moving, like walking or bending over to pick something up. And its important to consider both static and dynamic components of posture, he adds. Your posture involves your musculoskeletal system, which includes your bones, muscles, joints and other tissues that connect the parts of your body together. Its what provides form, support, stability and movement to your body. How you hold yourself can either align or misalign your musculoskeletal system. Throughout life, this system must adapt to the type of work you do, the hobbies you enjoy, how you use electronic devices, injuries you might sustain and even the kind of shoes you wear. Small changes in how you hold yourself and move can add up over a lifetime. Years of slouching wear away at your spine to make it more fragile and prone to injury. Holding your body and moving in unhealthy ways often leads to neck, shoulder and back pain. In any three-month period, about one in four adults in the U.S. has at least one day of back pain. Poor posture can also impact your flexibility, how well your joints move and your balance. It can reduce your ability to do things for yourself and increase your risk for falls. Slumped posture can even make it more difficult to digest the food you eat and breathe comfortably. Some research suggests a link between posture and mental health as well. Someone with depression might appear more closed in, curved and tend to look down, says NIH physical therapist Cris Zampieri, Ph.D. And when people feel anxious, they might raise their shoulders, she adds. Scientists are now exploring the connections between posture and how we think and process information in the brain. Our bodies change as we age. These natural changes make it especially important for older adults to maintain good posture, strength, flexibility and balance. Older adults tend to adopt a progressively hunched posture, Mr. Salem says. When shoulders continue to round forward over time, it creates excessive loading on the shoulder joint. This can create injury and limit the independence of older adults. He and other researchers have been studying the possible health benefits of yoga, particularly for older adults. Yoga is a mind and body practice that typically combines physical postures, breathing exercises and meditation or relax-
ation. In one study, older adults with severely hunched poster showed significant improvement and less rounded shoulders after a six-month yoga program. Were using innovative tools like motion analysis with high-speed cameras and platforms that measure force to understand what yoga is actually doing and how it targets the biological processes of our body, Mr. Salem says. Findings will help therapists and yoga instructors design programs that are safe and effective for older adults. The team also plans to study other age groups and people with disabilities. Its never too early or late in life to work on improving your posture and how you move. One way to improve your posture is to be aware of it in the first place, Ms. Zampieri says. Yoga, tai chi and other types of classes that focus on body awareness and mindfulness can help you learn to feel whats wrong in your own posture. They also help you connect your physical posture with your emotional state, offering benefits in both areas. Classes arent the only way to improve your posture. Be mindful of your posture and how youre moving, Mr. Salem says. Think about lifting your head, pulling your shoulders back and tightening your abdominal muscles in everyday situations. The foundation of good posture is having a body that can support it. This means having strong abdominal and back muscles, flexibility and a balanced body over your life.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationYou love your old cat, but hes not as active as he used to be. Its wonderful to cuddle with him on the sofa, but you miss his antics as a youngster. Wouldnt it be great to get a kitten so you could enjoy those good times again and still relish the pleasure of your aging cats company? Not so fast. Its easy to think that a young pet and an old one will get along and that the young one will even rejuvenate a senior, but sometimes expectations and reality clash. Senior cats faced with a rambunctious kitten may be grumpy or even aggressive, and youngsters can become fearful or learn bad habits when their overtures are forcefully rejected. Heres what to know to help ensure a happy, respectful relationship. First, think twice before getting a kitten at all. Introducing a young cat to senior cat household can be a bigger problem for cats than introducing a young dog to a senior dog household, says Marsha Reich, DVM, a veterinary behavior specialist who lectured at the American Veterinary Medical Association conference in Indianapolis last month. Thats because cats in general dont welcome the addition of other cats to their environment. A senior cat who doesnt want to interact with a kitten may begin by simply walking away, but that doesnt always work. Some young cats want to play with the senior cat no matter what, Dr. Reich says. These are the me, me, me kitties. In some cases, the younger cat stalks the senior cat with what seems like play but is really aggression, ending with the senior cat aggressively defending himself from the younger one or fleeing the younger one and being chased. If the senior cat doesnt think its play, its not play. This can lead the older cat to engage in more active behaviors to avoid interaction. Hissing, growling, swatting and chasing are all signs that a cat has had enough of anothers behavior. It can be difficult (and sometimes painful) to interrupt and redirect a cat who is behaving aggressively. With cats, managing the environment is often the best way to reduce conflict. Give the younger cat something to entertain him, such as interactive toys or a bird feeder that he can watch from a window. Spend more time playing with him so he has less time and desire to annoy your old cat. When you cant be there to supervise, keep the cats separated. If your older cat is sedentary, confine him to a comfortable room with everything he needs: food, water, a litter box and a comfy place to nap. Place resources such as food and water bowls and litter boxes in separate areas. Neither cat should be able to guard those items and prevent the other from using them. Sometimes owners are surprised that theres a problem because the cats seemed to get along at first, Dr. Reich says. Often, thats because the kitten was recovering from a respiratory infection or some other kittenhood illness so his behavior was muted until he was feeling better. Finally, consider whether your senior cat is grouchy because hes in pain. Degenerative joint disease is seen in 90 percent of cats older than 12 years. Other conditions that may cause pain include lower urinary tract infections, dental disease, kidney disease and endocrine disorders such as diabetes. Loss of vision and hearing can also contribute to spats between cats because the older one doesnt see or hear cues from the younger pet. Take your cat in for a checkup to rule out potential health problems and get them treated if necessary. Your veterinarian has more options for managing pain in cats than in the past.

THE DIVA DIARIESCocktail or mocktail, its time for a cold beverageSitting on my balcony yesterday afternoon sweltering due to a heat index of 110 degrees while dreaming of icy, cold summer cocktails I was reminded of a letter I received from an avid Diva Diaries reader last year who, in her opinion, felt that I shouldnt refer to spirited beverages in my column because such mentions promoted alcoholism. Margaret from Estero went on to say, and, young lady, I think you should look at your own drinking habits and switch to iced tea or soda. You seem to drink too much champagne. Oh, dear Margaret from Estero you can NEVER drink too much champagne. While I appreciate Margarets concern, its the hottest, most humid part of summertime in Southwest Florida and it calls for cocktails cold, delicious cocktails or, if like Margaret, you choose to avoid spirits, then enjoy a mocktail version. The following recipes are for some of my favorite summer cocktails (or mocktails, sans alcohol) and are best sipped on a porch, lanai, balcony or boat. Or you can just sit on a cardboard box in your driveway theres no pretense when it comes to beating the heat by raising a glass (or a red solo cup). Popsicle Mimosas OMG, you guys. My friend Warren just posted these on Facebook and I had to try it. Simply pour some champagne or Prosecco into a large wine glass and then insert a Rainbow Sherbet Popsicle, stick side up, and enjoy. If rainbow flavor doesnt float your boat, go with orange, strawberry or lemon. The world is complicated these days and sometimes life calls for a simple, easy drink that brings back memories of childhood (for the mocktail version, just substitute flavored sparkling water for champagne). Divarita This is basically my own personal version of a margarita and Im sorry, Margaret, theres so much booze in this drink that the only mocktail substitute would be a shaker of salt and glass of ice. The Divarita calls for a tall salt-rimmed glass in which youll pour two shots of tequila over ice, the juice of two limes, a splash of orange juice and a shot of Grand Marnier. If your glass is not full enough, please add more tequila. Garnish with a slice of orange also, youll need a straw. You should hear me trying to order the Divarita in restaur ants my husband says hes going to get the recipe printed onto cards that I can simply hand to bart enders. Strawberry Lemon Gin Delight Due to a bad experience with gin and 7-Up on my 21st birthday (if youve ever had a 21st birthday party, you get the gist), Im not a gin fan, but I wish I was because it really is so refreshing and summery. My friend Amy enjoys gin, though, and Ive had a sip or two of her favorite cocktail and its tasty. Mix 1 ounces of gin with an ounce of fresh lemon juice, a splash of simple syrup and three strawberries in a blender with two cups of ice, blend and serve garnish with a strawberry (use juniper berry flavored soda instead of gin for your mocktail). Hemingway Daiquiri one of my BFFs, Melinda, makes this potent (and yummy) daiquiri named after Key Wests most famous snowbird by filling a blender with one-quarter of shaved ice, 3 ounces of rum, the juice of two limes, the juice of a half of grapefruit, and six drops of cherry liqueur. She blends it up, pours it in a big old goblet and enjoys (for a refreshing mocktail version, just use pineapple juice instead of rum and apple juice instead of cherry liqueur yum). Cheers, dear readers. Lets enjoy our summertime bevvies, for autumn in Southwest Florida will arrive before we know it as in sometime around midJanuary. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Keith and Douglas Daubmann were raised in the business and their dad considers himself fortunate to have his sons join him in managing the company, which includes a new MY Shower Door subsidiary: MY Architectural Glass, which offers office partitions, wine closets, stair railings and more. Were building this together, the elder Mr. Daubmann said. He and Donna started MY Shower Door as a small, home-based business in 1986, while living near Springfield, Mass., where they already had an established closet organizing business. We did a lot of work for builders in western Massachusetts, said Mr. Daubmann. The builders were so impressed with the way we ran our closet systems business that they asked if we could do shower doors. At the time, they couldnt get anybody: Their glass guys didnt want to do it, their plumbers didnt want to do it, the tile guys didnt want to do it. It was just one of those things that nobody wanted to do. He admits he was far from knowledgeable about the shower enclosure business initially, but a friend helped him get acquainted. The reason I did that was not only did I have a pretty good customer base of builders, but the economy was starting to turn back in the late 1980s and I needed to diversity and have another product line to sell to builders, he explained. Shower doors were perfect. Entering the business proved to be a wise decision for the Daubmanns.

Of course, the same could be said of any career path. Many children brought up in an environment where they can observe and absorb their parents skills eventually enter the same industry. Real estate is unique, however, in that each agent has to make his or her own way, accepting the challenges and hard work their parents face every day. The Yorks: No pressure, just passionThe York family has been involved in real estate and home building in one way or another for generations. Before moving to Florida in 1996, James D. York owned and managed a construction company in Pennsylv ania. His brother owned one of the largest mortgage companies in the nation, and was a real estate investor. In Naples, Mr. York founded York Real Estate Group. One of the areas leading firms for many years, it is now part of the Downing-Frye brokerage firm. He is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Florida Association of Realtors and the Naples Area Board of Realtors. He writes a weekly real estate column in the Naples Daily News and gives lectures and seminars to the general public on current topics in real estate. With such family influences, its no surprise that two of Mr. Yorks children son Michael and daughter Morgan developed what Michael says is a passion for real estate. But the father never pressured the kids to follow him into the business. He only urged them to always do something that you l ove, and work hard at it, Michael recalls. Nevertheless, the York siblings received an education in real estate at their fathers side. Michael remembers sitting at open houses, handing out his dads business cards. When Morgan was in college, her father suggested she get her real estate license and then mentored her through the process as she worked on it over the weekends. I did as much learning as I could, she says. She graduated with a degree in business management in 2014 and went straight into the firm. I love it, she says. I cant imagine doing anything else. With Michael in his 30s and Morgan in her late 20s both working full time in real estate, theyre bucking a trend. A lot of agents in their 20s, 30s and even their 40s have other jobs outside of real estate, Michael says. Its a sign of our success that we dont have to. Michael joined the York Real Estate Group after returning to Naples from Columbus, Ga., where he enjoyed success in the construction distribution industry overseeing a multimillion-dollar region. The York familys primary territory is Naples and Bonita Springs, where Michael says the industry is going strong right now. Things are absolutely growing, he says, but you have to realize the market is very price-sensitive. With all the information available online, people are more educated now. But if the property is priced right, the buyer and seller will both be satisfied.The Bua Bell Group: Passing down a work ethicTade Bua-Bell grew up in Pittsburgh watching her mother, Emily K. Bua, raise four children as a single mom while laboring as a real estate agent and continuing her education. Alone among her siblings in showing an interest in real estate as a career, Tade remembers stuffing envelopes and doing other menial tasks at a very young age. In the seventh grade, she began hosting open houses for Realtor tours at her moms listings. Emily had started her SEE GENES, A24 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY James D.

life in Southwest Florida proved irresistible. They sold those stores and headed south, settling initially in Bonita Springs and, in 2003, opening what is now their flagship store in North Naples at the Wiggins Pass Crossing shopping center. At that time, the business operated under a different name through a licensing agreement, but was forced to make a change 2010. After a slight modification, the name easily became MY Shower Door, said Mr. Daubmann. From an initial staff of just himself and his sons, the business has grown to include 86 employees among the six MY Shower Door locations and D3 Glass. The business has garnered an impressive array of awards over the years, including being included among Inc. Magazines Top 5000 Fastest Growing Private Businesses in America for 2015 and 2016, and possibly, this year. MY Shower Door has also been recognized by the U.S. Small Business Administration as Floridas FamilyOwned Small Business of the Year. The company received the Entrepreneur of the Year award from the Economic Development Council of Collier County and was Small Business of the Year by the Bonita Springs Chamber of Commerce, among other honors. Mr. Daubmann chalks that success up to having quality products, processes and people. If you have a product that you know is going to sell and you can promote it well, and you have a good process for interacting with your customers, placing the order and following it through from production to professional delivery and installation, youve got a pretty good formula, he said. We truly believe that we have the best product When you make your own glass, you can determine the time frame, and you certainly have control of the quality and more control over price. In business lingo, thats the trifecta. When you can control quality, price and time, youve hit the three major factors.

She has a backelors degree in political science and history and a masters in education, both from the University of Pittsburgh. Tade was licensed in 1991 in Pittsburgh and sold there until 2006, when she moved to Naples with her husband, Brand, and their son, Trent. Emily moved to Naples in 1993 and quickly joined the ranks of the top 1 percent of agents in the Naples MLS. She earned the GRI designation as a graduate of the Realtor Institute and has served on the ethics committee of the Naples Area Board of Realtors. Soon after moving ot Naples, Tade, who majored in marketing at her mothers alma mater, joined Emily and formed The Bua Bell Group, which is associated with John R. Wood Properties, one of the largest real estate brokerages in Florida.Obviously, my mother set a pretty high bar on what a great agent is supposed to be, Tade says. She was persistent and determined, a work ethic she demonstrated raising four kids on her own.Tades enthusiasm, technological expertise and negotiation skills have enabled the pair to maintain the success and lofty standards Emily set years ago. We love it, Tade says. Weve been very fortunate, being in the top 1 percent of mor than 6,500 agents. Tades son is a senior at Community School of Naples. Shes encouraging him to follow her and Emily into the family, but doesnt know if he will. Three generations would be nice, she says.The Grimeses: Daddys little helperMorgan Grimes got her real estate license as a Christmas present for her father, Denny Grimes who happens to be president of Denny Grimes & Co. in Fort Myers. She had been his No. 1 helper since childhood and was working for him as a sales associate when she made the big commitment. I did it so he would have no worries if something happened to him, she says. I wanted him to know his business would be carried on. Mr. Grimes has been selling homes in Southwest Florida for more than 30 years. He holds numerous real estate designations and earned an MBA in marketing. His team has sold more than a half-billion dollars in residential real estate, with annual production as high as $150 million. He is the annual keynote speaker for the Fort Myers News-Press Market Watch, which draws more than 1,000 attendees. He has a regular TV segment called Real Estate Matters and is writing a book on real estate success axioms. Born and raised in Fort Myers, Ms. Grimes was fresh out of college when she joined her fathers Gateway Realty firm in 2009. Although she remembers being there when it started she was about 9 years old when she gave out logoed plastic cups at the 1998 opening she admits she wasnt ready for the intricacies of the industry. I had no idea what was involved, she says. Frankly, I thought it was boring until I realized the potential I had with the business. Thats when I fell in love with it. Back then, she was one of only a handful of Gateway agents getting their licenses at Larson Educational Services. Our little team was ready to go, but we faced the worst market ever, she says. Ms. Grimes thus continued her education with short sales and foreclosures. We really had nowhere to go but up from there. And up they went. From July 2014 to July 2015, Ms. Grimes sold 43 homes for a total of more than $8 million. In July 2015, she became a broker associate and opened a new branch office called the Sales & Information Center in Gateway, which is part of the Cape Coral-Fort Myers Metropolitan Statistical Area. Denny Grimes & Co. now employs 11 agents and is nationally known. A video on the company website features Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank.The Moore-Tufano connection: Persistence pays offRoxanne and Shannon Moore worked together successfully at daughter Shannons Green Lion Realty in Port Charlotte for several years We got our licenses on the same day, Shannon recalls. But then they had what Shannon terms a falling out and Roxanne left for another broker. There were some personal problems, not business-related, Shannon says. Its hard to work with family sometimes. It was a different story with Shannons own daughter, Willow Tufano, a brilliant child suffering with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Shannon mentored Willow as best she could, but the young girl kept having problems at school. When Willow was in seventh grade, her mother decided to try home schooling. Around that time, Shannon was pregnant with her third child and completing her studies to be a real estate agent. The new baby, born in July 2004, was a week old when Shannon got her license on July 30. Two weeks later, Hurricane Charley hit. I wondered if I had made a good choice, Shannon says. How do you sell a house thats in shambles? Nevertheless, Shannon persisted. She took her baby and went around town surveying the devastation. Youve got to do what it takes, she said. I started working with investors, many of whom I still work with today, who were interested in buying distressed homes and rehabbing them. Shannon thought she might as well bring Willow in to help out. Since youre in school, your math class is measuring tile and your speech class is talking to contractors, she told her daughter. Shannon also had Willow talking to potential renters and dealing with the utility companies. The young teenager quickly hit on the idea of selling items taken from the damaged homes and splitting the returns with her mom. The first one was a North Port house that had to be cleaned out, Shannon said. Nobody wanted the stuff, so she sold it on Craigslist and made about $800. Willow picked up more stuff from damaged houses and also began purchasing items at garage sales and Goodwill all to resale. She had saved $6,000 when she discovered a Port Charlotte home in disrepair priced at $16,000 and determined to own it. You think theyll take $12,000? she asked her mom, suggesting that they each put up $6,000 to buy the house, then split the profits when they sold it. Shannons husband objected, but she and Willow persisted. Willow said she would give up her half of the rent to pay for repairs, then continue giving it up until she returned her moms $6,000 initial investment. She had to make all the calls and take care of the property until she sold it, which she did. And then she did it again. A 14-year-old kid flipped two houses, Shannon says. Amazing. Shannon was not the only one impressed. An area National Public Radio station ran a story on Willow that was picked up by media outlets nationally. She became known as the youngest landlord in America, appearing on the Ellen TV show, CNN, Fox News and 185 local news broadcasts. Now 19, Willow lives on Manhattans East Side and works part time at Urban Outfitters. But she still makes most of her money buying and reselling inexpensive goods at a considerable profit. She knows what she can sell and knows her audience, her mom says. Shannon, meanwhile, has become something of an entrepreneur. Green Lion Realty, now with 22 agents, serves clients from Sarasota to Cape Coral. She has expanded with opening two marketing companies under the title Out of the Box Owl, one dealing exclusively with social media marketing. Shannon clearly enjoys using animal imagery in advertising. She says she chose the name Green Lion because green symbolizes good luck and prosperity, while a lion is bold and strong. The owl refers to wisdom, teaching and ideas. Her book Out of the Box Owl: Not Your Basic Pitch Marketing! is available at Amazon, Goodreads and other outlets. Her Facebook page Real Estate Marketing: Out of the Box Owl has 31,000 followers, and her website www.outoftheboxowl.com pr omises simple online strategies to attract buyers and sellers, including a four-week course priced at $297 with a money-back guarantee.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Company CategoriesHere are some key types of companies investors should be familiar with: Blue chip companies, such as General Electric, Procter & Gamble and Microsoft, are established, dependable and considered relatively safe investments. Theyre steady growers and usually pay dividends. Speculative stocks (some of which are penny stocks) are the opposite typically tied to young, relatively unknown and risky companies. Growth stocks, such as Facebook and Amazon.com, are favored by aggressive investors and tend to grow faster than the overall market. Many dont pay dividends, using any available dollars to fuel their growth. Their stock prices can go up and down quickly. Many can be solid companies, but their stock prices will often get ahead of themselves. Value stocks, favored by more conservative and risk-averse investors, are seen as undervalued. They may be promising but temporarily out of favor. Income stocks may not grow quickly, but they make up for that by paying significant dividends ideally, increasing them regularly. Theyre often favored by those in or near retirement, who seek income to supplement Social Security, pensions or savings. Defensive companies are ones with products or services that are sold no matter the economic environment such as electricity, medicine and soap. Youre not likely to stop taking your heart medicine if the economy enters a recession. Cyclical companies, on the other hand, sell products and services much more tied to the economic climate, such as cars, refrigerators, vacations and jewelry. An economic downturn can make people put off big and discretionary expenses. Seasonal companies experience significantly different sales at various times of the year. Retailers, for example, often see sales surge during the holiday season. Taxpreparation services, ski resorts and landscaping companies are also seasonal. Many companies fit into several classifications, such as ones that are growing briskly while also being valued attractively, or blue chips that are also defensive and income stocks. Its smart to know what youre buying or thinking of buying. Choppy WatersMy dumbest investment was made years ago, with Global Crossing stock. At the time, the company offered a pie-in-the-sky promise that it would deliver the internet across all oceans to every part of the world. Oops! Being 100 percent invested in technology stocks in 2000 was also a flop that took most players behind the barn for a severe beating. Live and learn! Daniel, onlineThe Fool Responds: Global Crossing was a wonder when it started, going from five to 10,000 employees in less than three years. The company faltered, though, when its undersea fiber optic network wasnt the huge success it hoped it would be and debt piled up. It also was embroiled in an accounting scandal, having allegedly inflated its earnings by booking revenue it hadnt received. That all led to its downfall, with the company laying off many thousands of workers and eventually filing for bankruptcy protection in early 2002, wiping out shareholders. At the time, it was the fourth-largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. You pointed out another danger being underdiversified, with too much money in just one sector or industry or company. Many employees of Global Crossing probably suffered even more than you, if they held a lot of company stock in their retirement accounts. This cautionary tale is a good reminder that seemingly promising companies can encounter unexpected troubles and that they can end up in costly scandals, too. On TargetRetailer Target surprised everyone when it raised its expectations for its second quarter, citing improved traffic and sales trends. The stock rose on the news, but it remains down substantially over the past year. Given that Target is a brick-and-mortar retailer in a world where consumer dollars are shifting online (and very often to competitor Amazon.com), theres plenty of justification for pessimism despite the beaten-down valuation. But dont count Target out just yet. Targets plan is to invest in exclusive brands, e-commerce and smaller store formats. The company has begun revamping many of its stores to make them more customer-friendly and has also been adding more custom merchandise. This includes fashion-forward clothing lines and household goods that have proven popular in initial tests. In May, the company launched the Cloud Island line of baby products, and it plans to launch 12 new brands by the end of 2018. Target also pays a dividend, which recently yielded around 4.6 percent, thanks to its knocked-down stock price. Target has increased its dividend annually for 46 consecutive years, a streak the company will certainly aim to maintain as it works through the current upheaval in the retail industry. There are no guarantees that Target will successfully adapt to the changing retail landscape. But its depressed stock price combined with a decadeslong record of dividend increases makes it warrant serious consideration.

J.M., Cadillac, MichiganAA point is 1 percent of a home loan. On a $200,000 mortgage, one point would be $2,000. There are origination and discount points. Your lender may charge origination points for originating, or launching, your mortgage. Discount points, which lower your interest rate (and thus your payments), are optional. With them, you pay extra money at the beginning of your loan so that you can pay less over time. The more points you pay, the lower interest rate you get. Should you opt to pay points when taking out a mortgage? It depends on how long you expect to stay in the home. If you pay a few points and then sell your home after two years, youll have enjoyed lower monthly payments due to the lower interest rate, but you probably will have paid more than you saved. For example, if you pay $3,000 in points to save $50 per month, it will take you 60 months, or five years, to break even.

B12 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYADVERTORIALTwinEagles reports just under $50 Million year-to-date salesThe Ronto Groups TwinEagles community reported 18 closed and pending new construction transactions worth nearly $13.5 million were processed in June and July. The exceptional performance drove the communitys year-to-date sales to just under $50 million. TwinEagles is now nearly 90% sold. A total of just 72 purchase opportunities remain available, including furnished models, unfurnished move-in ready homes, and buildable home sites. The community has been recognized by Boardroom magazine as a Distinguished Emerald Club for two consecutive years, a designation accorded to the top five-percent of private clubs throughout the world. The limited purchase opportunities remaining at TwinEagles stand in stark contrast to the conditions found by Ronto when it purchased the community in September 2010. When the real estate market collapsed in late 2008, growth at TwinEagles subsided substantially. After finalizing its purchase, Rontos development strategy that focused on creating a golfcentric lifestyle within a traditional country club model was put into motion. A second golf course, the Eagle, was constructed to complement the award-winning Talon Couse that will host the PGA Champions Tour Chubb Classic for the 12th time in 2018. Ronto also built a new resort-style swimming pool and fitness center to complement TwinEagles 47,000 square-foot clubhouse. The amenity center includes a 2,500-square foot pool with a spa, a zeroentry feature, an expansive sunning deck, a Tiki lounge and dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. As Ronto transformed TwinEagles, commercial development along the Immokalee Road corridor skyrocketed. New restaurants, retail stores, medical buildings, and a Naples Community Hospital mini-hospital/emergency center and imaging center followed the success of TwinEagles and have contributed to transforming North Naples into one of the regions most desirable areas. Ronto also focused on enrolling a group of outstanding Preferred Builders. The results speak for themselves. Just one firstfloor furnished Cheshire model remains available in Pulte Homes Covent Garden carriage home neighborhood. The maintenance-free Cheshire carriage homes 1,654 square feet under air floor plan includes a 230-square foot covered lanai and a twocar garage. The plans comfortable great room opens to the covered lanai and flows into a gourmet kitchen and dining area that also opens to the lanai. Completed and soon to be completed unfurnished, move-in ready residences by Lennar Corporation are now available in TwinEagles Kinross neighborhood. Incentives worth up to $24,000 are offered.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 REAL ESTATE B15Kalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 released for saleThe first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. The Manchester, England native has worked in the cities of London and Atlanta, as well as on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. More than 20 years ago he moved to Naples and has been associated with some of the finest Beach and Golf Clubs in the area. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. 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.

Watson. Da Capo Press. 304 pages. Hardcover, $28. Lynn University Professor Robert P. Watson makes reading history a totally engaging experience. He does so by choosing unusual and challenging topics, setting them into contexts rich in detail and presenting them in a prose style that is clear, vivid and unclutter ed by academic jargon. Mr. Watson makes historical events shine as if they were todays news. His latest book is a piece of fine storytelling. Readers will care about what happened on HMS Jersey, the major British prison ship during the American Revolution. As he must, the author attaches his relatively narrow topic to a few larger concentric circles: prison ships in general; overcrowded British prisons in the colonies and insufficient buildings to repurpose; and the overall Revolutionary War. The books spatial focus is New York, particularly Brooklyn waterways, and New England. The chapters are enticingly compact and action-filled, each opening with a quotation from Philip Freneaus 1781 poem, The British Prison-Ship. Even though its not about the HMS Jersey, the poem still gives a powerful contemporary insight into the horrors of prison ships. The early chapters provide a detailed overview of the dismal situation for the colonial rebels in the early period of the war. Even under the estimable General Washington, retreat was often the order of the day. Overwhelmed by the much larger British fleet and its professional sailors, colonial forces, even when supplemented by privateers, were not making much headway. The hows and whys of the turnabout become clear as the narrative proceeds, but once the focus is on the prison situation and the bright idea of prison boats, Mr. Watsons voluminous research on this generally unknown element takes over. The Jersey is at once the most extreme example of prisoner conditions and the iconic one. Its hard to imagine that over several years 11,500 prisoners died on that ship alone (around a dozen every day by 1783) more than on all the others put together. Simply put, conditions went from abominable to worse. Food to sustain the incarcerated population was not sufficient and was most often dangerous to consume. You could die without it or die from eating it. Fresh water was a rare commodity. Sanitary conditions? There werent any. Medical treatment? Uh-uh. People were crushed together in their disintegrating garments. Disease was rampant. No sympathy was shown to the prisoners, and they were not granted the protections of the laws of war. Though this book allows readers to meet a great many prominent historical characters, many of the less-known or totally obscure individuals are just as interesting. Among these are the five young men whose recorded experiences as Jersey prisoners allow the author to bring the conditions and cruelties of the Jersey fully to life. Each of the five lived to write about their war experiences, and especially their ordeal on the prison ship. Mr. Watsons judicious selections of the mens own words and his summaries of other passages in their writings enliven his study enormously. Astonishingly, several of these young men were barely men at all. At least two of the five had just entered their early teens when they went off to war as patriot-adventurers. Not long after the war ended, the few viable prison ships were turned to other purposes, while the worst of the wrecks were either scavenged or simply abandoned. The latter was the fate of the Jersey, with the hundreds and thousands of corpses on and around the ship reduced to piles of bones that were eventually recovered. Their final disposition became a matter of political controversy and indecision for decades. This sobering book reminds us that no one can overestimate the human capacity for cruelty or underestimate the capacity for perseverance and courage.About the authorRobert P. Watson, Ph.D., has published more than three dozen nonfiction books, two encyclopedia sets, three novels and hundreds of scholarly journal articles, book chapters and reference essays on topics in politics and history. A frequent media commentator, he has been interviewed by outlets throughout the United States and internationally and serves as the political analyst for WPTV5 (NBC) in West Palm Beach. For many years he was also a Sunday columnist with the SunSentinel newspaper in South Florida. His The Nazi Titanic was reviewed last year in these pages. Mr. Watson lives in Boca Raton.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY And yet Were analog people living in a digital world. We long for the personal touch, for things we can feel and handle. Though we live in a digital world, were flocking to analog things, says David Sax, author of The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter ($25.99, Public Affairs Books). Surrounded by digital, we now crave experiences that are more tactile and human-centric, he explains in the introduction. The idea for the book began almost 10 years ago. A couple of things happened at the same time, he says. First, he digitalized his entire music collection, putting everything onto iTunes and getting rid of his CDs. There was an almost instantaneous decline in listening to music, because it was no longer there, he says. I could stream it, but it was out of sight, out of mind. Shortly after that, his roommates parents gave them their turntable and records. And we started listening and comparing the two, he says. Wed listen to Paul Simons Graceland on vinyl and then to the same file we had on iTunes. It started a discussion. Not in terms of This one sounds better, but it was more about the experience. We saw that in all sorts of places, the analog experience was being valued, and there was a growing interest in it. When a record store opened up a block and a half away from Mr. Saxs home in Toronto five years ago, he started buying albums. As he noticed more and more record stores opening, he discovered the number of new vinyl records pressed and sold had increased more than tenfold over the past decade, resulting in a similar boom in turntable sales, and more new record stores. In his book he writes of musicians such as Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs) whove started their own record labels (Mr. White has more than 400 artists on his) and of vinylrecord pressing plants whose staffs have tripled and work around the clock, pressing records. Some musicians are also using old tape machines and vintage studio equipment and instruments to create a sound thats more heartfelt, raw and organic, as he describes it.Fans arent LudditesMr. Saxs ink-and-paper book, also available as an eBook, examines the growing popularity of: vinyl records, Moleskine notebooks, film cameras (for photographs and movies), board games, print magazines and newspapers. But hes quick to explain that The Revenge of Analog isnt a screed against technology and that the people hes written about arent Luddites. In fact, he writes in a chapter, Whenever I told anyone who works in digital technology about The Revenge of Analog, they immediately began speaking about their own deep fascination with analog. More often than not, they harbored a personal passion for analog things. By day they wrote code, but at night they collected vinyl records, were starting a craft brewery, played board games or repaired old motorcycles. Many also blend analog with digital. For example, fans of playing board games can discover new games and share ideas online on Board Game Geek. And TV actor Will Wheaton has a popular YouTube board game review show called Tabletop. Christina Jordan-Ballis, the owner of Echo Vintage Books & Vinyl Records in Fort Myers, has books and albums stuffed into a 1,900-square-foot space, but she also sells online. People stepping into her store think theyve walked into paradise. Its emotion, pure emotion, she says. The first thing they do when they walk in, they say, Oh my God, the smells! Its the sensory overload of coming into a place thats full of nostalgia. For younger generations, however, that sensory overload is brand new and highly desirable. Mr. Sax says the driving part of the market for record stores, film photography and board game cafes is not nostalgia, but rather a new generation. Many of the biggest consumers driving the revenge of analog are the most digitally raised generation, people in their 30s, 20s and teens, the author says. Theyre going this direction in a way no one predicted. For them, analog is something novel, a new experience. Digital is ubiquitous, he says. Everyone walking around today has a smartphone. Its not new anymore, theres nothing special about it Its like air to them. But analog, he adds, provides an outlet where theyre about to indulge in a way they cant with digital, because in digital, everyone has the same stuff. Joe Honeycutt, of Joes Record Exchange in downtown Fort Myers sees a lot of 20-somethings in his store. Theyve grown up hearing music streamed or maybe on a CD, so an album is a new experience for them, and ind of exciting: the cover and the artwork. And its so interactive: you have to become involved with your records, put it on the turntable and take it off.ANALOGFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYNaples architect Stephen Hrubys notes include reminders of tangential thoughts he has about what he hears in a meeting.Stephen HrubyArchitect, paper and pen communicatorI use a pad and a pen to take notes at meetings, even though I have my iPad right at my elbow or in my briefcase. Ill use it to look something up online, but Im much more facile and quicker at keeping notes with paper and pen. My notes are not in a linear fashion. Its more organic not only what Im hearing at the meeting, but my thoughts about what Im hearing. Ill put that on the side: things to think about or research, to jar my memory about something tangentially related to the topic at hand. I have not tried drawing with a stylus on a touch-screen pad yet. I smile, though, because what thats doing is taking digital back to the analog age. Theyre making screens able to do what I do with a pad and pencil. I was schooled before computers, when everything had to be rendered and drawn. Theres a drawing skill I think a lot of the younger architects have lost. Theyve lost that art of the handdrawn, whether its pen, ink, pencil. Melanie Payne of Fort Myers plays Scrabble online but much prefers to sit across the table from her opponent over an old-fashioned board version of the classic word game.Melanie PayneInvestigative reporter and Scrabble enthusiastI prefer playing Scrabble with someone in person I like the physical-ness of it. And I will remember a new word or a different word if Ive played it on a regular Scrabble board rather than if Ive played it online. I belong to a Scrabble club and have taken my niece and nephew (15 and 16) to play, and they really enjoyed it. Technology is so isolating. Scrabble club is interactive; youre actually dealing with another human being. When kids realize they can do that, they think its cool.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 A lot of his young customers buy records by older artists, such as Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Prince, The Rolling Stones. Established stuff, he says. Its hard to guess what they want on the new side. Some new acts sell really well, and then some dont.Whats old is new againSitting across a table playing a board game with another human being is a novelty to millennials too. The headline of a recent USA Today article by Diana Kruzman read: The hot new games arent on your phone, theyre on the table and require (gasp!) other people. Sales of board games in the U.S. and Canada grew 21 percent in 2016, she writes, topping $1.4 billion in sales. And despite the fact that everyone can take photographs with their iPhones, theres a growing resurgence of interest in film cameras. The July 24 issue of Time magazine has a two-page story titled The nofrills, full-fun snapshot is back, complete with photographs of various new Polaroid cameras. But even as phones displaced traditional cameras for the majority of amateur photographers, they left something missing: rarely do we print our digital photos anymore, write Alex Fitzpatrick and Kenneth Bachor. The cloud is great for storing pictures but can make it difficult to find memories especially with bountiful storage and the unlimited shots of digital photography.The intimacy of longhandWere analog beings. We like having all our senses involved. We enjoy interacting with people. Though we can take notes on our laptops, that doesnt compare to the physical act of writing on paper for some. Many authors still prefer to write their first draft on paper, before switching to computer, feeling longhand is more intimate. Mr. Sax writes in his book about how the engineers at Yelp revolted when their whiteboards were taken away. The whiteboards, they said, led to more interactive collaboration than anything digital. Designers I spoke to who worked at companies such as Twitter, Dropbox, and Pinterest gushed about the unrivalled superiority of whiteboards, Postit notes and paper to take ideas from the mind into a tangible place Once the paper designs allowed an idea to evolve into a more concrete state, the process invariably moved to the computer where the design could be refined and tested. But when it made that transition to digital, it was more thought out, and frankly better than a design that began on the computer. Google teaches its designers how to sketch, and sketching ideas on paper is now the companys standard first step in the design process. With hand-drawn sketches, even though they appear rough, the focus is on the idea Mr. Sax writes.The tactile experienceFor some, use of paper notebooks is a personal preference. Karen Tolchin, Ph.D., associate professor of English at Florida Gulf Coast University, writes via email: I use physical day planners and wear a watch, even though my phone could tell time and keep appointments for me. It has to do with a stubborn love of artifacts. I take special pleasure in selecting a new planner every year, especially when Im in Manhattan and can shop the British luxury brand Smythson. Much as I love my iPhone, it just cant compete with Smythsons embossed leather, trademark blue sheets of paper and a gold mechanical pencil. Also, you cant monogram an iPhone, and everythings better with a monogram. In his book, Mr. Sax writes that physical books and bookstores are also making a comeback. Though e-readers offer convenience, many people find they miss the tactile experience of holding a book and are returning to reading physical books. And while ordering a book online is quick, browsing in an actual bookstore and interacting with clerks has its own charm, he adds. (Even Amazon is opening up bricks-and-mortar stores.) When he shops online, he says, its more efficient, but I dont browse in the same way, I dont get the pleasure. Whether its books, vinyl records, wrist watches, notebooks or film cameras, its obvious people are embracing non-digital things and reviving industries. We assumed we wouldnt care about (many analog things,) but once we did away with them, we realized their value, says Mr. Sax. We like it, we enjoy it. Even if its the simple pleasure of holding a book in our hands. We enjoy the bookiness of the book, he says. At the end of the day, we believe theres a value in having something that is a real thing. As a magazine photographer for many years, Spencer Pullen of Port Charlotte used a digital camera. When he wanted to make bigger prints, he went back to the film format. Spencer PullenPhotographer who uses a large-format film cameraDigital technology could not give me the resolution I wanted for the detail I was looking for and at the large size I wanted. So I went on the hunt back to film. I started with 33mm, but that was too small. Then 220 was still too small. The next is 4x5 film, and that was better. But I went with 8x10. They make scanners that will handle 8x10 film, so I can easily make prints 80x100 with my Zone VI camera. Its the same type camera Ansel Adams used or that Clyde Butcher uses. Its made out of mahogany and brass and weighs 20 pounds. I use a film tent as my darkroom. I take the film out of the cassette and put it in the developing drum in the dark. Once the film is developed, I hang it up to dry. From there, people in the past could put it in the enlarger (to make prints). I dont have access to that. I put it in the scanner and it goes on the computer in a file. I have a large format printer and use archival paper. Its called the hybrid method because its a combination of analog and digital. When it all comes together in the end, I get a sense of satisfaction that Im doing something with my hands. I started with a blank sheet of film, and now through this process, I have something I can hang on my wall. When they married, Stephen Johnson, right, and Dave Gilbert combined their record collections. The Bonita Springs residents now have about 8,000 albums.Stephen JohnsonMixed media artist, record collectorI bought my first albums in 1966: the first Monkees album and the Beach Boys Pet Sounds album. I bought them on the same day, and I still have both of them. I was always a huge record fan. As far as my income would allow, I would buy records I have always loved the tactile thing of holding an album, putting it on the turntable and hearing the rich sound from the analog vibrations. But best of all, for me, is to have a 12 by 12-inch piece of art (in the album cover). Thats my huge thing about them. I love having all the artwork in that large format, so you can see it.

Four new plays take the spotlight for Gulfshore Playhouse festival Gulfshore Playhouse announces the finalists for its fifth annual New Works Festival that brings together playwrights, actors and directors from across the country for a multi-day event culminating in a series of staged readings for the public at The Norris Center. Each staged reading concludes with a Q&A session with the playwright. This years new works are: Tychos Fool by Ross Peter Nelson The greatest astronomer of the 16th century is dead, and there are whispers he was poisoned. An intergalactic cabaret harnesses the electrons of a 40-year-old TV show to reenact the past and solve the mystery. The reading of Tychos Fool is set for 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept 7. Hungarian Rhapsody by Susan Cinoman A farmers wife in rural Budapest receives an unexpected visit from a mysterious gypsy who changes her perspective on love, normalcy and passion. The reading is at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8. Buried Under a Blackbird Sky by Stephen Spotswood Eve Beecher, a premiere forensic anthropologist, returns to her hometown for an assignment at a church. Thrown back into the world she escaped, shes forced to deal with the past she ran away from, including an abusive home life and her one-time love, S amantha, the church minister. The reading is at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9. Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Elusive Ear by David MacGregor The notorious and asyet undiscovered genius Vincent van Gogh presents the master-sleuth Sherlock Holmes with a most unusual case. Aided by his partner Dr. Watson and his paramour Irene Adler, the trio embarks on a rousing adventure. The reading is at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10. The New Works Festival plays were selected by a corps of volunteer readers from a pool of 150 blind submissions. The event allows playwrights to transition from writing, to adding actors and an audience, to understanding how the play works in a performance setting. The festival is one of the best ways Gulfshore Playhouse can contribute to the national landscape by fostering the growth of up-and-coming playwrights, says Kristen Coury, company founder and producing artistic director. It is especially exciting when a play emerges from the festival that we feel is a great fit for our audience and our theater, Ms. Coury says, adding Miss Keller Has No Second Book, a finalist from last years festival, is in the lineup for the companys 2017-18 season. For tickets to the New Works Festival readings and for details about the full upcoming season of professional theater by Gulfshore Playhouse, call the box office at 866-811-4111 or visit www. gulfshoreplayhouse.org.
C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYScrew the mid-life crisis. Lets solve some crimes!Liz has broken one of the major unspoken rules of Girls Night Out. Shes brought a guy with her. And not just any guy, but Jackson, a creepy dentist who is socially inept, to say the least. But Liz is so crazy in love, shes b lind to his faults and to her friends dislike of him. She doesnt even realize what a faux pas shes made, bringing Jackson to an event when its supposed to be just the three friends: Jo, Mary and Liz for Chardonnay Tuesday, their night out. He is crazy about teeth, Liz gushes. She also boasts that he has a harem of hygienists. Mary and Jo are not as impressed. They question Lizs judgment. When did she become so clueless? one wonders. Its not like shes from the Midwest. Theres something off about Jackson, something not right. One of his hygienists was recently abducted from a nearby parking lot; Jackson was the last person to see her alive. Its obvious the murderer couldnt have been a woman, Jo says, explaining, matter-of-factly: Women dont kill strangers. They kill husbands. Mary and Jo suspect Jackson: Could he have killed his hygienist? Is their friend Liz in danger? And why is she letting him going on a camping trip with her teenage daughter? And so begins Wendy MacLeods Women in Jeopardy, a loopy, endearing, clever gem of a play thats the first in Theatre Conspiracys 2017-18 lineup. If this show is any indication of things to come, were in for a wonderful season. You just have to love a play that uses Screw the mid-life crisis. Lets solve some crimes! as its tagline. You also have to love a play that has three women over 40 as its leads. And what leads they are.Florida Weekly columnist Stephanie Davis plays Liz, the ditzy woman blinded by love. Shes a little bit of a floozy, kind-hearted but not exactly the brightest bulb on the marquee. When we first meet her, shes wearing a leopard-print top and a black skirt. When she leaves, she puts on a leopard-print jacket, a perfect visual metaphor for her personality: excess upon excess. As one character explains, Her hormones are in overdrive. Ms. Davis does a nice bit of stage work with a corkscrew while having a sexual discussion. Liz Abbott plays Mary, the divorced librarian whose first husband turned out to be gay. Although shes more quiet-spoken, theres definitely a spark there. In lesser hands, this could have been a bland character, but Ms. Abbott gives us someone with layers and depth. Shes a joy to watch as she flirts shamelessly with a cop (Miguel Cintron, who also plays the creepy dentist) and when shes clueless when a 19-year-old mistakenly believes shes attracted to him. Ms. Abbott on stage is always an occasion for celebration. Jo (Karen Goldberg) is Marys perfect foil. As the third friend in this trio, Ms. Goldbergs character is perpetually cranky, making blunt comments with a voice so loud and caustic it could scare the paint off the walls. Its as if she possesses no inner censors and just blurts out whatever shes thinking with all the subtlety of a foghorn. At one point, she gets so frustrated with Liz, she snaps, I swear to God, shes so stupid, she deserves to die! The plot also involves Lizs daughter, Amanda (Holly Hagen), an annoying and incredibly self-absorbed young woman, and her equally oblivious snowboarding ex-boyfriend (Chance Cintron). The two play their dim-wittedness with glee. Their pronouncements about people older than themselves elicited some of the loudest audience reactions on opening night. And this is part of the genius of Ms. MacLeods script: Its ridiculous and absurd and makes us laugh, it references a number of movies (including a wickedly on-point description of chick flicks), but is also a commentary about aging in our society. The women are in jeopardy because theres a possible murderer loose. But theyre also in jeopardy because theyre women over 40 in a culture that worships youth, that cant imagine women their age having sex or being romantic or doing much of anything other than baking cakes and being mothers. Director Bill Taylor has put together the ideal cast. All six actors know how to deliver the humor of this silly but smart play. The staging in the beginning scenes seems a little stilted, as if the actors were told to be more aware of the audience than each other, but loosened up as things progressed. And Marys green kitchen is huge, taking up the entire length of the stage, causing the actors to do a lot of walking. Theatre Conspiracy was packed on opening night, and if theres any justice in this world, it should continue to enjoy large audiences for the remainder of the run. Women in Jeopardy is a blast. Dont miss it. Youll find yourself cheering these amateur detectives on while laughing heartily. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Women in Jeopardy>> Who: Theatre Conspiracy >> When: Through Aug. 26 >> Where: The Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers >> Cost: $25 ($11 for students) >> Information: 939-2787 or www.theatre@ artinlee.org COURTESY PHOTOKaren Goldberg, Liz Abbott and Stephanie Davis star in Women in Jeopardy.

H00616 8/16 PUZZLES MT SET HOROSCOPESLEO (July 23 to August 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with coworkers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well being of your ailing relationship. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person even if its said in jest could delay or even derail your progress. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a wonderful host who can throw a really great party.

FILM CAPSULESThe Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature (Voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Jackie Chan) When a greedy mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to build an amusement park, squirrels Surly (Mr. Arnett) and Andie (Ms. Heigl) and the rest of the animals try to stop the destruction of their home. Its not funny, and its actually insulting to the human race. Rated PG.Kidnap (Halle Berry, Sage Correa, Chris McGinn) A desperate mother (Ms. Berry) will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son (Mr. Correa). 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.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).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.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 especially one on a stairwell toward the end are excellent. Rated R.War for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Mr. Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Mr. Harrelson). Thats right: Caesar only wants revenge on one guy, so theres not much war here at all. Its one of the many letdowns in this third part of the new Apes trilogy. Rated PG-13.The Beguiled (Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning) During the Civil War, a wounded Union soldier is taken in by Confederate women who subsequently compete for his attention. It starts slow, but its fun to watch the story twist and the third act packs a wallop. Rated R.

Find a Location & View Our Menu at ribcity.com CATERING SERVICES CALL (239) 209-0940 LATEST FILMSLogan LuckyIs it worth $10? YesSteven Soderbergh has directed many types of films with great success (he won an Oscar for Traffic in 2000), but its clear he has an affinity for heist movies (he made Oceans 11 and its two lesser sequels). Yet its still odd to see him on the big screen with Logan Lucky, about a robbery during a NASCAR race. I say this for a number of reasons. For one, you might recall Mr. Soderbergh announced his retirement from feature film directing in 2013. This didnt last (few thought it would), but it is true that this is his first feature since then (hes been quite busy with The Knick on Cinemax). When he retired, Mr. Soderbergh said he was burned out and disliked the ways directors were being robbed of their creativity in feature films. Everything became about money rather than making the best movie possible. Its ironic, then, that hed return to features with a movie that has clear mainstream appeal; this is certainly not one of his indie film passion projects (Bubble, The Girlfriend Experiment) that he knows will not play to the masses. Logan Lucky follows Jimmy (Channing Tatum), Mellie (Riley Keough) and Clyde (Adam Driver), the three Logan siblings, as they plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the busiest race of the year. They need help, so they enlist demolitions expert Joe Bang (Daniel Craig, delighting with a Southern twang), who then brings in his dim-witted brothers Sam (Brian Gleeson) and Fish (Jack Quaid), who has Dangerus tattooed on his right shoulder. In the Oceans movies the intelligence of career criminals Danny (George Clooney), Rusty (Brad Pitt), et al. was in never doubt. We could believe they were clever enough to think through robberies on an incredibly complex scale, and part of the fun was in the revelation of what they saw coming that the audience couldnt possibly foresee. This is relevant in terms of Logan Lucky because none of the characters especially mastermind Jimmy shows anything close to the intelligence needed to execute a heist this complicated. Maybe on his absolute best day Joe Bang could pull it off, but even that feels like a stretch, especially given that hes incarcerated when we first meet him. That said, its nonetheless fun to watch the plan unfold. On top of that, ample cameos (Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Dwight Yoakam and more) keep things fun, and darn if the aftermath doesnt make you smile.

In its totality, Logan Lucky delivers as advertised. Its compelling, features likeable albeit flawed characters and offers some good twists along the way. It might have a few too many characters, but its humor (especially an argument between prison inmates and the warden that will delight Game of Thrones fans) and creativity outweigh the flaws.

Paid: $95 The Skinny: Grandma loved her Moorcroft lamp. It had pride of place in her living room atop a marble Victorian table that had belonged to her much-loved mother-in-law she even referred to it as the good lamp. The lamp, made from a 1920s Moorcroft pottery vase in the English companys Pansy pattern, had been an expensive piece in its day. Like the table, the lamp had come to THE FIND:A 4-inch Moorcroft Clematis pattern vaseI love shopping in Naples always have. I still remember visiting a thrift store on U.S. 41 that had as its landmark a restaurant called Fat Phillys something tells me they sold sandwiches. Wed stop at that store on our way to an antiques shop in Old Naples called Bibelots & Beads. That was in the 1980s. My mom and I still love to shop our way south from Fort Myers when we can. But I now live in the Palm Beaches. So when a friend suggested he and I do a day trip from the east coast so he could deliver a table to his boss accountant, it was a no-brainer. Along the way, I introduced him to a few stores. The Guadalupe Resale and Consignment Shop (www.guadalupecenter.org), in North Naples, always has a nice selection of clothing and collectibles. My friend found a set of Fostoria American water goblets priced at $7 for 10. We headed south toward another of my favorite haunts the Avow Hospice Treasures shop (www.avowcares.org/ shop-treasures/), where my pal found a set of tart pans for a song and I found a set of 10 linen cocktail napkins for $4. I also scored a pair of Fenton cranberry glass hurricane shades at Up for Grabs Consignment (www.upforgrabsnaples.com). But it was just north of downtown, at The Shelter Options Shoppe (www.napSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYA friend and I somehow squeezed eight large shield-back dining chairs into a Prius.lesshelter.org/options/), that my friend hit pay dirt, scoring a set of eight gorgeous quality shield-back chairs at $25 apiece. We earned a 10 percent discount by liking the thrift shop on Facebook. It was like a jigsaw puzzle, but somehow we managed to squeeze all eight of the chairs into a Prius. We ended our day at Treasure Island Antiques (www.treasureislandnaples. com), which is 12,000 square feet of antiques shopping the way it used to be interesting, carefully selected items attractively displayed. Next time, I want to take my pal to the Auctions Neapolitan gallery (www. auctionsneapolitan.com), The Antiques Center of Naples (www.antiques naples.com) and your choice of shops run by St. Matthews House (www.st matthewshouse.org), which has stores from Naples to Fort Myers. her by way of my greatg r andmother, who had the vase drilled during World War II to make a lamp. It remains an object of beauty, with its deeply saturated reds and blues and its motif of pansies delicately outlined with the slip of the clay. Over the years, I have cultivated a garden of the Art Nouveau pottery in Pansy and Anemone, Orchid and Sunflower patterns. This little vase, in the Clematis pattern, dates from the 1950s, when Walter Moorcroft, son of the potterys founder, was running the place. Its pretty and will coordinate well with Grandmas lamp. .btnfbr.r Pfnb b Sr b : () 55 Years55 YearsCelebrating Celebrating H Fbtnf Hr t Nf, n H Utn t Tfr H' Bn It H t n t 'n nt n n n fnt.

NOODLES SATURDAY HAPPY $10 Lasagna Night! CELEBRATE VINOWhats in your wine?The question often arises: Is wine simply the result of crushing grapes and letting the juice ferment, or is anything added to wine to improve quality or cover up flaws? The answer is mostly yes. At least for lower-end products. As Ive mentioned many times, there is no consumer product in the world that gives you less information about whats in the package than a wine label. But some winemakers steadfastly maintain a noninterventionist approach, adding nothing or very little to the wine, and they actually list ingredients on the bottle. This, however, is extremely rare. On the other hand, makers of very inexpensive wines, like the stuff that comes in three-liter boxes with a little plastic faucet on the side, have a lot at stake because they make wine in industrial quantities. Since theyre cooking the stuff up 300,000 gallons at a time they have to (a) save money, (b) assure uniformity and (c) make sure nothing goes wrong in the process. These producers use several techniques (and several substances) to maximize production and minimize risk. First, theres sugar. If theres not enough residual sugar in the juice, the yeast wont be able to convert it into sufficient alcohol. Winemakers add beet or cane sugar (a process called chaptalization) to increase alcohol content. It doesnt make the wine sweeter, because its consumed during fermentation. This is illegal in most countries, but a common practice in Germany and some other places. Then, theres oak, which adds all sorts of flavors and dimensions to wine. If you cant afford barrels, which cost upwards of $1,500 each, you throw planks of oak into the juice. If you cant afford them, you use oak chips. And if youre really on a budget, you use oak sawdust, then filter it out before bottling. Next are vitamins, which keep yeast alive in the juice during fermentation. These may be added in high-alcohol wines (over about 14 percent). Acid content (pH) is extremely important to overall taste and balance. If acid levels are too high or low, substances can be used to make the adjustment. Too little acid might call for the addition of tartaric, malic, or citric acid. These are very common ingredients in many of the foods we eat, and are not at all harmful. Tannins occur naturally in grape skins and seeds and are the critical structural component of red wine. If theres not enough, powdered tannin can be used to add muscle to an otherwise weak wine. Now its time to talk about Rubired grapes. As the name implies, theyre really, really red and are used to make a concentrate called Mega Purple. This can be added to red wines to boost the color and make the wine look consistent from batch to batch. In California, in 2013, over 255,000 tons of these grapes were harvested. Winemakers wont admit on the record to using it, but the word is that even makers of more expensive wines drop some in to deepen the color. Since its basically grape juice, its not considered an additive. There are other processes that dont involve putting substances in the wine, but are also used to improve quality. Micro-oxygenation blows tiny air bubbles into the juice to open up and smooth out tannins. Reverse osmosis forces the liquid through a membrane to filter out impurities and increase flavor concentration. All that being said, theres no reason to fear opening your favorite bottle. These substances dont remain in the wine theyre used in miniscule amounts to eliminate flaws, and then completely removed. Theyre also naturally present in many of the foods we eat. So keep swirling and sipping, and sample some of this weeks new favorites. Dierberg Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2013 ($32) If you like your Chardonnay on the oaky side, this is the bottle for you. Pronounced yet nicely balanced aromas of oak and vanilla with a buttery mouthfeel and characteristic mixed fruit flavors. The oak is done with a gentle touch, and not overwhelming. WW 87-88. Locations I4 Italian Red Blend NV ($19) This is one of the very interesting blends from Dave Phinney, whom Ive written about in this space previously. Lots of leather and perfumey lavender on the nose, and blackberry and plum flavors. Could use decanting to calm down the tannins. WW 87. Locations P4 Portuguese Red Blend NV ($14) Another Dave Phinney effort, this wine is pretty purple in the glass with pronounced vanilla aromas. Slightly on the sweet side, very earthy, extracted and raisiny. Drinks more like a Port, and so well balanced that it supports 15 percent alcohol. WW 86-87.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Should I decant my wine before serving? Sandy M., Fort LauderdaleA: Generally, no. Younger red wines, especially full-bodied ones like Cabernet and Syrah, usually benefit from decanting. But its fine to pour the wine into a nice big glass and let it sit and open up for 10 to 15 minutes. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

With private clients, a catering business and a new banquet hall, we figured we had to find out how he keeps up and keeps knocking his customers off their feet with the same creativity that has made him one of our favorite celebrity chefs. Q: What is your culinary background? A: After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., I worked at a few restaurants in New Jersey and made my way into the city working at Restaurant Daniel and Cafe Boulud for world-renowned chef Daniel Boulud. I came to Naples 17 years ago. I was at the helm of restaurants including Chops City Grill, Cru Lush Wines and Pure Food and M Waterfront Grille before starting my own two businesses, Crave Culinaire and Venue Naples. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: My first job was working as a dishwasher at a small Italian restaurant, where I was surrounded by guys who loved to cook. They would teach me and allow me to practice making pizza dough and sauces. Then, after deciding to go to culinary school, I landed a job working for macrobiotic chef Patrick Verre, who taught me so much about life, food and how it affects the body. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: I did my internship from school at a place called Maxwells on the Bay. My grandparents lived down here, so it was great to spend time in this beautiful city while learning the ropes of an industry I where I would later make my full-time career. Q: How would you describe your culinary perspective? What elements do you like to bring to each dish? A: Balance is the most important element. Whether its balance in texture, acidity, saltiness/sweetness or visually in the presentation, I enjoy building a dish that is memorable in as many ways as possible. Q: You created quite a name for yourself first as the executive chef at M Waterfront Grill before embarking on your Crave Culinaire catering service. What inspired you to launch your event space, Venue Naples? A: We would constantly hear from our clients that they were interested in finding a location where they could bring in a large group of people and we could cater. This area had a void in event spaces. Country clubs and hotels are most popular for these types of events, but outside caterers arent allowed in because they have their own culinary teams. We were already preferred caterers at the few available event spaces, but we wanted something that would give us flexibility and control to build an experience without limitations. So we decided to build it ourselves, and Venue Naples was born. Q: How do you juggle catering clients, private clients and running Venue Naples, which has its own events in addition to catering to private parties? A: With a tremendously talented team. We could not take on all of the business we do without great leadership and passionate chefs and service team members. My wife, Nicole, is our director of operations. In season, when we might have more than 40 events a week and now have to execute events in our own space, we know we will need to add a good amount of support to our already fantastic team. We will certainly continue hiring this season and opening up more job opportunities. Q: Youve said you consider yourself an artist whose medium is food. How do you approach your craft with an artistic sensibility? A: The plate is my palette. We source some of the best ingredients available and between precise cooking technique and our desire to bring a wow factor to every party, we focus a lot on artistic presentations that make an impression on our guests. Q: What do you feed yourself during your off-hours? A: My wife is really good at taking care of this department. She thoroughly enjoys cooking and really does a great job of preparing creative and delicious gluten-free meals for us every week. But when we indulge, we dont hold back. We love to travel, and typically our trips revolve around food and wine. Whether its Napa or somewhere abroad, we make sure to save up enough to eat in the top restaurants in the area. Q: Which of your dishes are you particularly proud of? A: There are so many that my team has executed over the years. We just continue to innovate and are always trying to better ourselves with each bite. Q: What do you find challenging? A: Sometimes the logistics of high volume catering can be overwhelming. Whether its staffing, equipment rentals or food orders, there is so much room for error. Its extremely important to constantly triple check ourselves. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: Grant Achatz of Alinea has an amazing life story that has been a true inspiration for me. Having met him, Curtis Duffy and Thomas Keller a few times, I cant begin to express my admiration and respect I have for them all. Daniel Boulud was of course a crucial part of my early career, and the previously mentioned Patrick Verre, who still inspires me to think differently. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: For dining, the food and service at Meadowoods restaurant in Napa Valley have surpassed every experience I have had. With Crave Culinaire, its hard to nail down just one, but every day is an adventure, thats for sure. From in-home dinners to cocktail parties to dinners under a tent for 700 people, to cooking on a yacht or at Louis Vuitton and Tiffany boutiques, this business always keeps us on our toes and the journey is very exciting. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee is a staple. Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking is a library of very well thought out dishes and techniques that really pave the way for innovation in the food world. Grant Achatzs book Life on the Line is also one of my favorite reads. We menu-write and practice techniques all the time, and sometimes it takes a few attempts before we perfect a dish. But we are always enthusiastic about finding the next best thing. COURTESY PHOTOBrian Roland
