Southwest Florida is one of the best places for shelling on planet earth with Sanibel Island its epicenter.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYSouthernersFor a long time now Ive bumped through life alongside Southerners, generations of people born and raised in the South. People served up its history and its fancies together with its pig and peas, its grits and tomatoes, its churches and schools. People watered from the same well, taught from the same books, poured the same sweet tea from the same big pitcher. But none of them are the same. There is no one Southerner, Ive learned, except in this: On a sunny day, their shadows stretch straight into their histories. More than the rest of us, perhaps, Southerners carry that burden. To be shadowed by history is usually to be burned and branded by it. And at this unfortunate American juncture, Southerners en masse educated or not, traveled or not, prepared for this moment or not have yet again been handed the most difficult of human tasks: First, to confront their shadows. And for white Southerners in particular, to dissolve the myths and icons of their beloved parents and grandparents, their teachers and pastors, without surrendering their love of the same complicated people. Thats a torturous demand for any. Its also an opportunity of sorts in my view the only great gift offered to the South, and to the American people, by the current president and his allies. However unwittingly, President Trump has resurrected a painful debate about American character, values and race that offers all of us, but Southerners in particular, a chance to embrace what is true by seeing clearly what is false (as many have long since done). The truth of our history is evident to any who read, and even to those willing to listen to any who read and who have the courage to acknowledge it. It goes something like this: The Founding Fathers led the colonial revolt from King George III because Americans had been made tax slaves of the British empire, as they saw it. So they hammered out the frame of a dream that would take another two centuries to realize under law, a dream encapsulated in five words: All men are created equal. However flawed those first United States citizens were some of them slave owners their writings strongly suggest they viewed slavery, a practice dating from 1619 in America, as morally reprehensible. The Civil War began in April 1861, after 11 Southern states seceded, insisting each state should have the right to enshrine a single institution in law: slavery, at that moment more than 250 years old in America. Some insist the war was foremost a battle over economic freedom and states rights. To the extent those conditions relied on Africans kidnapped and sold into slavery, theyre right. Lincoln and his Congress aimed to outlaw slavery in five border states (Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri), along with any new ones to come along, opening a door to the demise of slavery by vote, not blood. A house divided against itself cannot stand, Mr. Lincoln said, predicting that either slavery would finally be abolished in whole, or it would become standardissue in the 86-year-old nation. At the time, the South included about 5.5 million free citizens and 3.5 million slaves, the property of a small cadre of wealthy Southerners selling cotton, tobacco and rice. Their agriculture, their opulence and their lifestyles depended entirely on slaves. Slavery, therefore with its inherent kidnappings, murders, rapes, beatings and the physical destruction of families whose members were sold away was a big-engine money-maker for wealthy white Southerners. It was also undeniably the major cause of the Civil War. Our new government was founded on slavery, declared Alexander Stephens of Georgia, the vice president under Jefferson Davis. Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the White Man; that slavery, submission to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition. In the bloodshed that would immediately follow, 620,000 soldiers died, including almost 260,000 Southerners. Total casualties on both sides amounted to more than 1.2 million. The profound consequence of that grotesque eruption for all Americans did not end in 1865 with Robert E. Lees surrender at Appomattox. It did not end 99 years later in 1964, with the Civil Rights Act. Instead, it continues to rear its ugly head today, a terrible stain stepped back out of the shadows. For that reason, those people are laughable who insist that nobody alive today was a slave and nobody alive today owned slaves, so blacks (and whites) should just get over their whiny anger: anger at the proud apologists for Dixie battle flags; anger at statues idolizing Confederate leaders in public places rather than remembering them soberly at historic sites and museums; and especially anger at those who gather in public to sport Nazi symbols, Klan paraphernalia and guns. In effect, such contemporary racebaiters many who know nothing about the South and come from somewhere else are shouting fire in a theater, to use the great metaphor employed by Supreme Court Justice Olive Wendell Homes, Jr. in defining the limits of free speech. Justice Holmes, wounded three times, saw some of the bloodiest fighting of the war as a young man. So we come to this: To the urgent need now to see our history for what it is, and to champion the truth by fully acknowledging it. Some of the bravest and most determined moralists Ive ever known are Southerners, black and white. If theyre any indication, and if they have anything to do with it, the country is going to get a lot healthier in the next few years. Im betting on them. Its the haters I dont understand. t T a r i i roger

Compromises are made that spiral into a muck of unexpected consequences. Then one day, it all comes home to roost. Should we really be so surprised? In 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed legislation establishing the federal holiday honoring civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A white supremacist had assassinated Dr. King 15 years earlier. He was a Nobel Peace Prize winner, revered for building a civil rights movement using Gandhian principles of nonviolence. The King Encyclopedia summarizes what the practice of nonviolence meant to Dr. King in the face of violence and hate. He wrote, True pacism, or nonviolent resistance is a courageous confrontation of evil by the power of love. He died at the hands of a hater in defense of this belief. But, not everyone was happy about honoring Dr. King, least of all the white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan, who bombed, burned and murdered to prevent the movements successes; nor were the racist politicians who smeared King as a communist sympathizer and an adulterer. But President Reagan signed the bill anyway. The states took several years to get on board. Nor was the South eager to comply. Vestiges of white supremacy lingered. The region immersed itself in the failed cause that gave white supremacy its rise. A deep racial resentment festered over what Dr. King accomplished, believing that it was at the Souths expense. White folk grieved over the Lost Cause and rejected that preserving slavery was the cause of the Civil War. The Confederacy eulogized by white Southerners is synonymous in the South with the lost cause of white supremacy. But the myth and not the truth prevailed. Karen Cox wrote for The New York Times that Confederate monuments have always been symbols of white supremacy appearing in the period between 1890 and 1920 during a time of extreme racial violence. Murderous attacks and the lynching of blacks by white mobs were shockingly common. The KKK continued their reign of terror for decades, re-emerging periodically from the shadows to do their worst, including the era of Dr. Kings leadership. So, no surprise, Southern states lacked enthusiasm for giving Dr. King his due. They got creative. Florida, Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi observe MLK Day either as a separate day in association with Confederate Memorial Day or as a celebration inclusive of state-sanctioned, Confederate remembrances of its champions, such as Gen. Robert E. Lee. Mostly white, like-minded neighbors nostalgic for a mythic, Southern past get together to dwell for a moment relishing that vaulted memory. It has the taint of a rebels reply to the offense of a holiday honoring a black man who brought ole Dixie down. They say they celebrate heritage, not hate. Virginia re-purposed MLK Day to include honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Then, deciding to cut the baby in half, it settled on two separate holidays. In Virginia, you can celebrate the African-American who was the leading acolyte in the American Civil Rights Movement. Or, you can lift a glass in honor of Confederate generals revered for having defended disunion and slavery as an unambiguous goal of a treasonous South. It was no accident that white nationalists chose Virginia to stage their coming out party to Unite the Right. All they needed was an imagined grievance and a place that resonated with the rightness of whiteness the movement espouses. Charlottesville provided the triggers. Its town council decided to remove a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee and rename the park where it stands. The white nationalists seized on the opportunity to resurrect the ghosts of white supremacy inhabiting the Confederate past. A poisonous amalgam of right wing extremists, the KKK, white supremacists and neo-Nazis, cast themselves as Lees modern defenders. The time was right. They have a desk in the White House and the presidents ear. The Unite the Right rally unleashed two days of a racial violence that left three dead and many more injured. Following the Charleston massacre of nine African-Americans by a white racist, a call to conscience stirred the nation. The conspiracy of silence surrounding racial hatred and white supremacy was broken. It was no longer possible for white Americans to believe the memorialization of the myth of Lost Cause, could coexist with the demand for racial equality; nor that racial violence will subside even as white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK appropriate historical truth and seize upon its symbols for the furtherance of their own, racist ends. These symbols are everywhere in our midst. The battle lines are being drawn in Durham, Lexington, New Orleans, Charlottesville, Charleston, Tallahassee, Tampa, even unto the nations capital. What happened in Charlottesville is a wake-up call. The time of concessions and moral compromise is done. The white supremacists battling for the soul of the country are back. And make no mistake, there will be blood. The country can no longer afford a deeply flawed truce sustained by magical thinking regarding historical truth. White supremacy is the death of American values. Leslie Lilly writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy. Email her at and read past blog posts on Tumblr at c a T h s b Its time to mothball confederate monumentsRobert E. Lee wasnt a Nazi, and surely would have had no sympathy for the white supremacist goons who made his statue a rallying point in Charlottesville, Va. That doesnt change the fact that his statue is now associated with a campaign of racist violence against the picturesque town where Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia. The statue of Lee was already slated for removal by the city, but the Battle of Charlottesville should be an inflection point in the broader debate over Confederate statuary. The monuments should go. Some of them simply should be trashed; others transmitted to museums, battlefields and cemeteries. The heroism and losses of Confederate soldiers should be commemorated, but not in everyday public spaces where the monuments are flashpoints in poisonous racial contention, with white nationalists often mustering in their defense. Some discrimination is in order. Theres no reason to honor Jefferson Davis, the blessedly incompetent president of the Confederacy. New Orleans just sent a statue of him to storage good riddance. Maryland had a statue of Chief Justice Roger Taney, the author of the monstrous Dred Scott decision that helped precipitate the war. The state decided to quietly and swiftly remove Taneys statue one night last week. Robert E. Lee, on the other hand, is a more complicated case. He was no great friend of slavery. After the war, he accepted defeat and did his part to promote national healing. Yet, faced with a momentous choice at the start of the war, he decided he was a Virginia patriot rather than an American nationalist. I look upon secession as anarchy, Lee said. If I owned the 4 million slaves in the South I would sacrifice them all to the Union; but how can I draw my sword upon Virginia, my native state? He betrayed the U.S. government and fought on the side devoted to preserving chattel slavery. That is a grievous political sin, although he obviously wasnt the only one guilty of it. The Civil War was an America conflict, with Americans on both sides. An honorable soldier, Lee is an apt symbol for the Confederate rank and file whose sacrifices in the wars charnel house shouldnt be flushed down the memory hole. The Baltimore commission has called for moving a striking dual statue of Lee and Stonewall Jackson to the Chancellorsville, Va., battlefield. This would take a page from Gettysburg, where a statue of Lee overlooks the field where Gen. George Pickett undertook his doomed charge. If you cant honor Robert E. Lee there, you cant honor him anywhere. For some of the left, thats the right answer, but this unsparing attitude rejects the generosity of spirit of the two great heroes of the war, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. Notably, Grant vehemently opposed trying Lee for treason. Lee himself opposed building Confederate monuments in the immediate aftermath of the war. I think it wiser, he said, not to keep open the sores of war, but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavoured to obliterate the marks of civil strife and to commit to oblivion the feelings it engendered. After Charlottesville, its time to revisit his advice. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. n b C s M R rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

James Murdoch put it well when he wrote this past week, vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals. The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob. I cant even believe I have to write this: Standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so. Education can make a difference. Each year, The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida teaches thousands of local school children and inspires our community and visitors to stand up and confront hate and to understand the consequences of indifference. Please join us in this important work by sharing this message, volunteering, or making a charitable gift.About the museumFounded as a nonprofit organization in late 2001 by community leaders, The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida was inspired by a local middle school project on the Holocaust called Out of The Ashes. The 201718 school year marks the 20th anniversary of this student project created by Golden Gate Middle School teachers David Bell and Michelle Lee. Since the museums founding, its ageappropriate education programs have impacted more than 175,000 students, grades K-12 and college and university, in six Southwest Florida counties. A centerpiece of the education programs is the Holocaust-era Boxcar Exhibit, on loan to the Museum by Jack and F.E. Nortman and The Boxcar Foundation. Since its public debut in 2008, this traveling exhibit has been seen by more than 90,000 people in South Florida. During the academic year, the Boxcar Exhibit ravels to school campuses throughout Southwest Florida. It has also been on display in public venues such as libraries, the Naples Depot Museum, churches and synagogues. Through Aug. 31, the Boxcar Exhibit is in place at the Naples Museum of Military History at Naples Municipal Airport. The museums newest program for students, the -8-10 Project, provides three opportunities in elementary, middle and high school to reach students during their education with information about the Holocaust and its lessons for us today. An important part of the -8-10 Project is the childrens book titled Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto written by Susan Goldman Rubin and illustrated by Bill Farnsworth. Ms. Sendler worked as part of an underground resistance group and saved nearly 2,500 children from the infamous Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. The book about her story is one of several childrens books about the Holocaust and World War II the author and illustrator created together. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida proudly hosts Painting the Irena Sendler Story, an exhibit of Mr. Farnsworths original paintings for the Irena Sendler book, from Sept. 5-Dec. 18. The museums permanent collection contains more than 1,000 unique World War II and Holocaust artifacts and original photographs. Many of the artifacts have been donated or permanently loaned by local Holocaust survivors, liberators and other dedicated people. The museum presents temporary exhibits, films and lecture series and other special events during the year. School and private group tours are available by appointment. As a member of the Florida Department of Education Commissioners Task Force on Holocaust Education, the museum also presents yearly teacher workshops that provide educators with current information and classroom-ready instructional materials on the Holocaust. At 4760 Tamiami Trail N., the museum has been closed for its annual cleaning since Aug. 14 and reopens on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Hours are 14 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday, with daily docent-led tours at 1:30 p.m. For more information about the museum, its programs and opportunities for sponsorships, underwriting, endowments and special bequests, call 263-9200 or visit SUAREZ Painting the Irena Sendler Story, an exhibit of Bill Farnsworths original paintings for his illustrations in Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto, opens at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida on Sept. 5 and remains through Dec. 18.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtreasures churned up by the sea and a northwest wind. Although each of our beaches boast different sought-after shells ancient sharks teeth (not technically a shell) on Englewood Beach and the junonia on Sanibel the treasure trove changes daily depending on the fickleness of Mother Nature. Shells, which are the abandoned homes of long-dead mollusks, are particularly plentiful after a storm and around low tide. To get the best pickings, serious shellers also know they must beat other early birds even on remote islands. About 356 types of shells have been documented along Southwest Floridas beaches, however, Jos H. Leal, science director and curator of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel, believes there are more. You have to keep in mind the number includes small shells you may not be able to see unless you sift through a handful of sand, he said. Ive turned a lot of people into doing that over the many years. They have no idea. Some are only a sixteenth of an inch. Two pounds of sand can yield as many as 150 shell species as Dr. Leal discovered upon returning from a teaching assignment along Mexicos Caribbean Sea coast with a bag filled with sand. Having earned a post-doctorate in marine biology and fisheries, Dr. Leal is the reigning shell expert in Southwest Florida, and by his affiliation with the museum, a global one, too. The Brazilianborn scientist was the museums inaugural executive director when it opened in 1995. He served in that position until 2013. Hes discovered a new genus of bivalves and had at least three named in his honor by his peers, including the Leal wentletrap. Naming one of his finds dilemma spectralis, found in the Florida Keys in 2006, is a playful reference to the rarity of finding a spectacular new shell. Its like finding a new asteroid, he said. There are 75,000 named mollusks and many are known only from one specimen. Mollusks include snails, clams and oysters. Squid and octopods are also considered mollusks because they have internal shells called pens. For Dr. Leal, his love of shells began as a child on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Shells are cool objects to begin with even if you dont know theyre made by animals, he said. Most people like me get involved as kids and being naturally curious look for more information. Its very eye opening. The museums website offers a photographic guide to help shellers identify their finds. Its marine biologist also conducts daily beach walks. A study of Sanibels beaches (someone actually collected buckets of sand and counted) determined its most common shell as the transverse ark, a species of clam. Beachcombers can also expect to find what Sanibel blogger and shellebrity Pam Rambo dubs the Sanibel Six the whelk, cone, conch, olive, murex and tulip. In a weeks time, youre most likely to get one of each of those on a beach full of shells, she said. The cone is the hardest to find but it keeps you going out to find a Florida cone, dusty cone or alphabet cone. Notably absent from the list are the elusive junonia and wentletrap. The junonia is very difficult to find, said Ms. Rambo. Its a trophy shell with big bragging rights. I talk to people all the time about the wentletrap which is the coup de grce of minis. Wentletraps, marine snails, are small less than an inch often white and boast high spirals. Junonias are a species of larger sea snails, cream with spiraling brown squares. Because they live in deep water, junonias are often not intact if they happen to make landfall. Theyre usually damaged by wave action and currents, Dr. Leal said. Since launching her blog in 2009, Ms. Rambo has developed a large following in the cyber world, sharing her love and knowledge of shells. She also has a YouTube channel and her justpublished book, Pam Rambos Guide to Speaking Shellanguage, provides a humorous look at her shell-focused vocabulary (shelltastic, shellzam). Ms. Rambo leads monthly shelling expeditions to Cayo Costa aboard Captiva Cruises and Big Hickory Island on Sight Sea-R Cruises out of Salty Sams Marina on Fort Myers Beach. She said shes able to separate her shellives business and passion by reserving shelling on Sanibel exclusively for herself and husband Clark. Shelling lets you get back to the basics and enjoy the beach, Ms. Rambo said. Im very fortunate my husband likes to shell just as much as I do. Some couples fish together or play tennis. We shell. When we take vacations, thats what we do. We explore different beaches around the world to find shells. Every place has different shells. Her August Cayo Costa cruise attracted a shellout of 48, a mix of locals and visitors, first-timers and repeat customers, newbies and avid collectors. There was also a couple from England with their 13-year-old daughter. She watches my YouTube videos every night and reads my blog, Ms. Rambo said. She was really excited to be there and meet the person behind the camera.

Collecting live shells, including sand dollars, sea urchins and sea stars, is prohibited on Southwest Florida beaches.A.M. low tides are often better than P.M. low tides Many of the mollusks are nocturnal or feed at night; therefore the shells are more available in the morning.After a good northwest wind or a storm These events tend to stir up the ocean bottom and make more shells more available for the next tide.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NEWS A9 Another visitor, wearing a shelldecorated skirt, was in search of shells for crafts. Everyone found a sand dollar, she noted. Ms. Rambo crafted her very own project for last years inaugural National Seashell Day, embellishing a VW bug with 20,000 shells. Its currently on display at Southwest Florida International Airport. Naples shellingCaptains Shane and Susan Chaplin offer daily shelling excursions aboard Sweet Liberty in Naples to remote Keewaydin Island, arming participants with shell sheets, books and bags for their one-hour island time. You never know what theyll bring back, said Mrs. Chaplin. Occasionally they find some nice-sized shark teeth. Weve seen quite a few foot-long sharks teeth. The discoveries and shellers change from season to season. We have some people who know exactly what shells they want to find on the beach, she said. Sometimes there will be a lot of shells on the beach, other times not too many. The beach was loaded after Tropical Storm Emily. Dr. Leal also encourages shellers to search out Scotch bonnets, Florida fighting conchs, nutmegs and the wentletrap, the latter two more of a challenge. There are a lot of cool shells that can be found on our beaches, he said. Even within the same species youre hard-pressed to find two shells like each other. What you wont find on Southwest Floridas beaches are the large mostly broken shells lining the shores of Sanibels causeway islands. A lot of people ask, said Dr. Leal. They were trucked in from central Florida when the causeway was built. These are fossil shells that have been dead for a million years. Some of the largest known modernday living mollusks include the giant clam, spanning 4 feet long and tipping the scales at 440 pounds on the Great Barrier Reef. Their shells have long been used as baptismal fonts and today theyre heavily poached. The largest marine snail, a gastropod commonly known as the Australian trumpet, is also found along the reef. The worlds second largest gastropod, measuring 24 inches, is Bailey-Matthews very own horse conch, Floridas state shell. The nonprofit displays only a portion of its collection of 700,000 or so shells, including naturally bright yellows and pinks, produced by genetic coding and often a poison alert to predators. Another fun fact: Most shells open to the right. I think a lot of people think the museum is a roadside attraction, Dr. Leal said. Theres more than meets the eye. We have a lot of activities, specials events and our beach walks. Like Dr. Leal, Ms. Rambo grew up along the water in Virginia Beach, combing for shells. Its always a treasure hunt, she said. Every single time we go out theres something awesome. After a summer storm from the southwest we sometimes get Caribbean shells like milk conch and juvenile queen helmets. Different species like doghead tritons are also showing up. Its never the same thing. Its always changing. Shelling is an adventure. Theres always the element of surprise, Dr. Lea said. You never know what youre going to find next. I think the coolest thing of all is shelling is free and youre in a beautiful setting. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYSanibel blogger and shellebrity Pam Rambo takes in plenty of days shelling and finds some of the most amazing varieties.Shells are cool objects to begin with, even if you dont know theyre made by animals ... Most people like me get involved as kids and being naturally curious look f or more information. Its very eye-opening. Jos H. Leal, science director and curator of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel

Mr. Abarca recently was looking for a loft apartment in Denver, Colo., close to his new position as operations manager for Lipman-Colorado, where he reports to the general manager. This promotion is another in a series the former Immokalee Foundation student has earned working for Lipman. Ive moved six times in the past three years, he said, adding with a laugh, which makes me a very efficient packer, by the way. Lipman CEO Kent Shoemaker saw Mr. Abarcas potential some years ago when the young man, who was accepted into the foundations Take Stock in Children program while in middle school, spoke a few years later at the nonprofits gala event. Mr. Shoemaker told Mr. Abarca to come to his office, where he gave the young man a book to read. Call me when youve finished it, Mr. Shoemaker said. Mr. Abarca called the next day. Soon after, Mr. Abarca began a summer internship with Lipman as a management trainee. He seized each opportunity as it came along and continued to impress the CEO and others within the company. He also earned a degree in business from Florida State University. He moved for Lipman to Arizona and then San Diego, to positions with increasing responsibility. Each little piece has prepared me for the next step, he said recently. Just a few days into his new post in Denver, he was becoming familiar not only with greater traffic on the roads in his new hip and happening city, but also, and mostly, with employees and procedures in the repacking and processing facility. The Colorado location deals mostly with tomatoes and is a smaller plant than the San Diego facility. The change is an opportunity Mr. Abarca relishes. A smaller place makes it easier to see the changes you make, he said. You can really feel them. Its exciting. I have a lot more responsibility. Based in Immokalee, Lipman is the largest open field tomato grower in North America. Leaders intimated that Mr. Abarcas responsibility there is likely to grow as well. Denver is one of our smaller facilities with tremendous growth potential, said Lipman executive Glenn Davis. We believe Jesus will bring value in assisting General Manager Scott Iannacito in daily execution and leading the expansion opportunities. Throughout his fast-moving career, Mr. Abarca said, hes had opportunities to grow and learn as an individual. Each transition has been nerve wracking, but being put outside of my comfort zone has really helped me to grow as a manager, man, leader and a member of the community. Mr. Shoemaker considers investing in talent like Mr. Abarca from communities in which Lipman operates as an aspect of sustainability. Indeed, for any company to be truly sustainable defined as able to be maintained at a certain rate it starts on the social (or human) level, he wrote in an article about the subject, published June 27 at, an aggregate of several industry magazines in the Meister Media Horticulture Group. He reinforced that sentiment, referring to Mr. Abarca: We continually look to align skills/needs/aspirations into successful promotions and lateral movement in our company. Jesus has a passion to learn and an openness to explore new areas.Mr. Abarcas parents labored in Immokalee tomato fields and wanted something better for their son and their son wanted something better for himself. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

A former student of The Immokalee Foundation, Mr. Abarca earned a degree in business and since then has moved to three cities for positions of increasing responsibility with Lipman. SHOEMAKER

BEHIND THE WHEELFrom the dealer to your wallet the new car battery rouletteIt might seem absurd to write about hybrid and electric vehicles in an era of inexpensive gasoline, but technology and efficiency will keep moving forward no matter the price per gallon. Whether youre a fan of the environment, or just like saving money, efficient vehicles have an appeal in any economy. So, as we approach two decades of hybrids in the mainstream and EVs face their first major hurdle, its good to see how these are changing the automotive landscape. For decades, many manufactures have included planned obsolescence in their formulas. This is why a car might have a new fascia or added colors. But instead of just revising the styling every year, theyre now offering consumers some genuine substance. It ranges from better safety to additional infotainment. But for this column, well just focus on the efficiency advances of hybrids and electric cars. Car companies are doing a good job of alleviating the initial concerns over battery longevity. The current standard is to offer an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on battery life. This means the first owners (and many cases second owners) have the assurance of protection. But the warranty isnt a full security blanket. As any car gets older there will be deterioration. So dont expect to qualify for a replacement if efficiency in year seven doesnt feel like it did on day seven. Volvo recently committed to only selling hybrid gas/electric or full electric vehicles by 2019. Besides being a safety pioneer, its reputation is built on offering Nordic tanks that were hardy enough to circle the globe hundreds of times, literally. A 1966 Volvo P1800 currently holds the record for longevity with over three million miles traveled. But that kind of long-term relationship will be tougher to duplicate in 2019 when not every shade tree mechanic will be able to diagnose battery range issues. This situation highlights the larger role dealerships will play as hybrid and EV technology expands. And many are happy to be essential to servicing. Besides warranty and repair work, the local dealer has a ripe opportunity for repeat business. After all, its a convincing argument when telling customers they can invest $1,000 to fix their older vehicle or they can use the same car as a down payment on a new one. And if that sounds alluring, then just imagine how that would feel when facing a $4,500 battery replacement on a hybrid past its warranty. In some cases, taking a hybrid in for servicing can feel like visiting the cell phone store. Thats because todays cars are often sold less on their overall price and more on their payments. The added capacity of the newer models will have people asking if the latest technology can fit in their current plan. This is not necessarily the smartest financial strategy (especially for those who want to break a lease.) Still, there are some of us out there willing to pay for the best technology on wheels, and the dealership wants every opportunity to scratch our itch. But what about the old car? That same out-of-warranty hybrid is now pushed into the used car market. There are some new repair shops sprouting up that will replace hybrid car batteries at a lower rate. But this replacement market isnt guaranteed to expand, especially if the service isnt built into the cars value. For instance, right now, a 10-yearold Toyota Prius and Camry in good condition will each cost about $6,000. If knowing that the Prius hybrid batteries are out of warranty and even an aftermarket replacement will be a few thousand dollars, which used car really has the most long-term appeal? Remember, we are using the hybrid car example. These have been around for nearly two decades. Mainstream fully electric vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf, have only been with us for about seven years. That car offered from the start the lengthy eight-year/100,000 mile battery warranty. So, there are many Leafs about to cross the threshold into a new frontier of zero assurance.Nissan already offers replacement batteries for those who have experienced loss thats not great enough to trigger the warranty, and that seems to range between $4,500-$6,500. True to the modern fashion, it can be built into a payment plan.The appeal is that since there are fewer moving parts to deteriorate in an EV, replacing the battery often creates a nearly-new car feeling. But this is a substitution, not an upgrade, so it doesnt bring a 2011 car up to the long range 2017 standards. One car that has seemed to skip any definition is the Chevrolet Volt. Its a plug-in electric vehicle with gasolinepowered range extender. It cannot be called a full EV and GM doesnt like calling it a hybrid. But this in-between vehicle is programmed not to charge its battery to full capacity. It creates less stress, and as a result, these first examples that are beginning to age out of all warranties often show less battery loss. Fans of efficient vehicles might feel that most of this writing is unfairly taxing hybrids and electric vehicles without highlighting the upshot. Unfortunately, it would take the full page just to list the environmental and cost benefits, and its assumed that a savvy consumer is already aware of them. In fact, this is just meant to remind people to do their full research. Hybrids and EV are working outside of the traditional system. The car companies are learning, adapting, and improving and the aftermarket isnt far behind. But now that theyve finally been with us long enough to feel conventional, we need to know how to play battery roulette when kicking the tires.

Naples Richard Mellon receives highest accolades from the FAA SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Federal Aviation Administration honored M. Richard Mellon with its Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award, the most prestigious award the FAA issues to certified pilots. Mr. Mellons name has been added to the online Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award Roll of Honor, which recognizes pilots for their dedicated service, technical expertise, professionalism and outstanding contributions to further the cause of aviation safety. To be eligible for the award, which is named after the first U.S. pilots, a nominee must hold a U.S. Civil Aviation Authority or FAA pilot certificate, document 50 or more years of civil or military flying experience, be a U.S. citizen and have three letters of recommendation from other pilots licensed by the FAA. Mr. Mellon received the award at a Naples Airport Authority board meeting. It was presented by H. Matthew Simpson, lead representative of the FAA Safety Team. The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award is given to pilots who exhibit professionalism, integrity, leadership and mentorship, Mr. Simpson said. Rick Mellon is the epitome of all of these attributes. Mr. Mellon was inspired by his father who was a flight instructor in World War II. He learned to fly at 14 years old and was commissioned in the U.S. Air Force during college, serving until he graduated from Auburn University. A Naples resident for more than 20 years, he served terms as chair and vice chair during his time on the NAAs Noise Compatibility Committee. During Mellons tenure in the Civil Air Patrol, he held the positions of inspector general and legal officer for Florida, and also instructed at the national level for both positions. He is CEO and board chair of Mellon Philanthropic, as well as president and board chair of Mellon Heritage Foundation. He practiced law in Pittsburgh for 25 years and served as an arbitrator and judge in Pennsylv ania. Locally, he is a board member of Quest for Success and a volunteer member of Angel Flight, Friends of Naples Airport, Friends of Rookery Bay, Humane Society Naples advisory board and Rotary Club Naples-Pelican Bay. He is also involved with the American Arbitration Association, Arc Allegheny, Civic Light Opera and Easter Seals. Naples Municipal Airport began operation in 1943 as a military airfield. In 1969, the Florida Legislature created the Naples Airport Authority as an independent government agency charged with the operation, development and improvement of the airport.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYLocals totally love partial eclipse of the sunMillions of Americans turned their eyes to the heavens Monday afternoon, Aug. 21 (behind the appropriate protective eyewear, hopefully) to view the first solar eclipse to pass over the United States in nearly 40 years. Southwest Floridians experienced the peak of the event around 2:55 p.m., when the sun was about 82 percent covered by the moon. The Collier County Public Library system doled out about 1,450 pairs of eclipse glasses free of charge with help from the Space Science Institute, according to Tanya Williams, library system director. About 3,000 people stayed at various library locations around the county to watch the eclipse, making it easily the largest system-wide one-day event, Ms. Williams added. Headquarters Library on Orange Blossom Drive also live-streamed NASAs video feed of the eclipse as it made its way from Oregon to South Carolina. Naples resident Christina Fischer shared these three images of the solar eclipse flaring through her camera lens. ROBBIE SPENCER / FLORIDA WEEKLYEmma DeHoan came with her family on holiday from the Netherlands to watch the eclipse at Collier County Headquarters Library.

Senior lifetime parks pass to jump from $10 to $80Time is running out on one of the best travel deals around for seniors: On Aug. 28, the cost of a lifetime pass to U.S. national parks for those 62 and older jumps from $10 to $80. For Collier County residents, the closest places to purchase the pass are: Big Cypress National Preserve in Ochopee; Everglades National Park, Homestead; J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel Island; and Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuge, Big Pine Key. Passes also can be purchased through the mail, though applications must be postmarked by Aug. 27 to secure the $10 price. And for an additional service fee of $10, passes can be purchased online at The pass called the America the Beautiful: The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass can be used for entry to more than 2,000 sites, monuments and parks across the country that are managed by the National Park Service. Those who purchase the passes by Aug. 27 will never have to pay an additional fee to visit any of the national parks, according to the NPS. The park service has offered the lifetime senior pass for $10 since 1994. It covers all entrance, day-use and vehicle fees, and provides discounts for things such as tours and campsites. At a site that charges per-person fees, pass holders can bring along three other adults for free. The first senior pass price increase will raise revenue to enhance the visitor experience in refuges and parks, where recent federal budget cuts have meant diminished staff and services. At Ding Darling alone, staff has been slashed in half during the past decade, according to a statement from the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge. Seniors can still opt to buy an annual pass for $20. Those who purchase an annual pass for four straight years can convert that pass to a lifetime senior pass. Even with the 700 percent price increase, the lifetime pass is still quite a bargain: Single park-admission fees to the most popular sites which include the Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains and Yosemite national parks can run as much as $30. If a senior visits three of the $30 parks, she or he has already saved money, NPS spokesperson Kathy Kupper told AARP last month. Plus, the pass allows those traveling with seniors to enter the park with them. In late 2016, Congress approved the National Park Service Centennial Act, legislation that raised fees and set up an endowment to help pay for projects and visitor services. Passes are non-refundable and nontransferable and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. If lost or stolen, a new pass will need to be purchased. For more information, call 888-2758747, option 3, or visit planyourvisit/passes.

The first Protected Harbor home opened in 2010 and houses women. The new home for men will be ready for occupancy this fall. Fifty guests were invited to write their favorite Bible verse on the concrete slab of the new house before the flooring was installed. Those supporters have helped build the foundation of faith our future residents will stand on for years to come, board president Bob Schubring told the gathering. Mr. Schubring went on to say there are more than 300,000 individuals with developmental disabilities living in Florida. Of those people, 76 percent live with a family caregiver, many of whom are age 60 and over, he said, adding, The parents of adults with developmental disabilities deserve the assurance that their children will be loved and cared for after they pass on. Residents of Protected Harbors two homes will find a place to feel loved, respected and needed. They will be encouraged to grow and develop spiritually and emotionally, Mr. Schubring said. Protected Harbor also provides instruction in living skills, workshop and vocational opportunities for earned wages, classroom and physical education as well as social activities and companionship.

According to the city council memorandum on the project, the upgraded design will exceed FEMA 100-year flood zone levels and have the ability to withstand Category 5 hurricane wind levels. Fire Chief Pete DiMaria said the new building is the most cost-effective way to get operations and administrative staff all under one roof. The building, which the fire department has been trying to get approved since 2005, will provide critical infrastructure to the city of Naples, the chief said, adding it is projected to meet the citys public safety demands for at least 50 years. The previous building was last renovated 23 years ago. In the event of a hurricane or other disaster, the Collier County Emergency Operations Center is the primary location in the area for coordination of all federal, state and local governments, as well as for partner agencies such as the American Red Cross and Florida Power & Light, according to county spokesperson Michael Sheffield. He believes the citys new EOC will be utilized for more targeted tasks and operations within Naples city limits. The project was approved at a September 2016 city council meeting. Initially the building was approved to be a one-story, $5 million project designed to house only operational personnel. That project was approved at a May 2016 meeting. Then in August, a fresh design was brought in for a two-story building capable of housing operations and administration. The city manager (Bill Moss) and the mayor (Bill Barnett) agreed that it was a great project to move forward with, according to Chief DiMaria, who has been with Naples Fire since 1989 and was promoted to chief in June 2016. The new facility, along with some new technology, will allow Naples Fires administrative staff to vacate their offices at the Naples Police Department, allowing for increased flexibility and consolidation of each of those public services, the chief said. The technology were putting in the building is going to enhance our service by allowing us to respond quicker. The mapping software that notifies our personnel to go out to incidents will decrease the time to get to the patient. The $6.3 million cost includes the demolition of the old Fire Station No. 1. The money will be taken out of the public service tax fund and comes at no additional increase to taxpayers. That price tag does not include equipment, furniture, extractors for bunker gear, or air compressors to fill selfcontained breathing apparatuses, Chief DiMaria said, but the additional cost was anticipated and a final set price will be determined during construction. Its an important project, not only for the members of the fire department, but I really feel the community is going to be better served, he said, adding the new facility will improve the departments ability to respond far to the south end in Port Royal and also to handle some of the needs of the community to the north as well. While demolition/construction is underway, Fire Station No. 1 has been relocated to 50 Riverside Circle in a building owned by the city. The fortuitous vacancy of the building saved city taxpayers more than a half million dollars, according to the fire chief. Passersby probably noticed the old fire station looking a bit dilapidated in the weeks leading up to the teardown. Thats because the shell of the station was being put to good use. We did some search-and-rescue training, as well as some hurricane window ventilation training, the chief said. Thats why it looked abandoned.

Valid 8/16/17-9/10/17.Unclear on the conceptIn early August, Volusia County Beach Safety officers banished 73-year-old Richard G. Basaraba of Daytona Beach from all county beaches after it was discovered he was handing out business cards to young women, reading Sugardaddy seeking his sugarbaby. The mother of a 16-year-old said he approached a group of girls with his cards and continued to speak with the minor girl even after she told him her age. He also produced a bra padding, telling the girls he was looking for someone who would fill it. He told the 16-year-old she would be perfect.Great expectationsOn Aug. 7, 16-year-old Jack Bergeson of Wichita, Kan., filed papers in Topeka to run for governor as a Democrat in the 2018 race. Bergeson, who wont be able to vote in that election, said: I thought, you know, lets give the people of Kansas a chance. Lets try something new. The candidate says he would radically change health care and would support legalizing medical marijuana, but hes conservative on gun rights. Bryan Caskey, director of elections at the Kansas secretary of states office, said there is no law governing the qualifications for governor. Bergesons running mate, 17-year-old Alexander Cline, will be 18 by the election and will get to vote.Animal antics A skunk got up close and personal with a 13-year-old boy on July 25 when it climbed into his bed in Hamden, Conn., apparently after hitchhiking into the house in a trash can. The family removed the skunk without the help of the Hamden Animal Control Division, but an officer said the smell of skunk ... emanated throughout the house. The Scardillo Cheese factory in Burnaby, B. C., Canada, has a squirrel to blame for a fire that resulted in more than 20,000 gallons of milk being spoiled on Aug. 8. The squirrel chewed through a main power line on the outside of the building, which sparked the fire, and power could not be restored for 12 hours. Already-made cheese was kept cool with generators, but milk being readied to make cheese warmed and went bad.Least-competent criminals Criminal justice student Jordan Dinsmore, 20, of Columbia, S.C., had her cars manual transmission to thank for her safe escape on July 26. Three men approached her around 1 a.m. and pointed a gun at her. After robbing her of her phone and purse, the men forced her into her car, threatening to kidnap and rape her, but when they realized none of them knew how to drive her stick-shift car, one of the criminals ran away. The other two forced Dinsmore to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash. As she dr ove, Dinsmore removed her seatbelt, then put the car in neutral and jumped out, screaming, Call 911! Call 911! to passing motorists. The Richland County Sheriffs Department arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old in the kidnapping and robbery. Surveillance video from a July 27 break-in at the home of John C. Burbage, 59, of Naples, Fla., showed a surprisingly familiar picture of the perpetrators: Harold Russell Lanham, 22, and his dad, James Edward Lanham, 41, both of whom Burbage employed and both of whom were wearing their work uniforms. The Lanham duo stole a safe containing more than $30,000 worth of cash and property from their bosss home.The weirdo-American communityResidents of Hollis, Maine, were unnerved on the evening of July 25 as Corey Berry, 31, wearing a clown mask, walked around town with a machete ducttaped to the place where his arm had been amputated. When Berry, intoxicated, was taken into custody in nearby Waterboro, he explained to officers that he was copying other clown sightings as a prank on a friend. Karmen LePage of Hollis warned: Hes not funny. We live in the woods; you think we dont have guns? Hes ... lucky.Paranormal activityThe South Carolina Emergency Management Division issued an alert on Aug. 9 in advance of the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21 asking South Carolinians to be vigilant and look out for Lizardmen during the celestial event. SCEMD does not know if Lizardmen become more active during a solar eclipse, the note reads. But we advise that residents of Lee and Sumter counties should remain vigilant. The folkloric reptilian beast is thought to live in swampland around Lee County and frequent sewers in nearby towns. While some people thought the warning might be a joke, SCEMD said it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of Lizardmen.Anger managementCustomers at a Flying J truck stop in West Hanover Township, Va., got quite the show on Aug. 14 when Craig Troccia, 54, of Roanoke smashed the windshield of his truck and poured a cup of urine onto the interior. Wait did we mention Troccia was naked? He then yelled a racial epithet at a black man and flashed his genitals at everyone within sight. Next, (still naked) Troccia pointed a gun at the same man and then at another man and threatened to kill them both. After state troopers loaded Troccia into their cruiser, he slammed his body and head on the various panels of the vehicle, they reported. He was charged with 34 criminal counts, including public drunkenness. The continuing crisisThere are 70 registered voters in McIntire, Iowa, but not one of them showed up to vote in a two-question special election on Aug. 1. Mitchell County deputy auditor Barbara Baldwin told reporters that even poll workers didnt vote because none of them live in McIntire, which is about 130 miles northeast of Des Moines.

We were the first in Florida and seventh in the nation. Five years later, there are 44 carefully screened, competent, and market-dominant members of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. They extend over 37 states and to Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore and United Arab Emirates and encompass 122 hospitals, 12 million patients and 18,000 physicians. When it was announced back in 2012, we outlined these three goals of our affiliation with Mayo: The primary goal of the Mayo Clinic Care Network is bringing the benefits of Mayo Clinic expertise close to home, decreasing the need for patients to travel outside Southwest Florida for treatment. One of eight NCH patients already hails from outside our five-county region. And with this affiliation, we anticipate becoming an even greater medical tourist destination. This alliance will not only improve the quality of our care here in Naples, but also serve as an economic boost for our community. As patients and their families travel to NCH for care, they will use our hospital services and other local services as well, potentially contributing to estate and economic development. For NCH physicians, this relationship gives access to a Mayo service called AskMayoExpert, which delivers concise, Mayo-vetted medical SEE WEISS, A23 NIH researchers identify cause of common type of hair loss NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHHair loss is often associated with men and aging, but it can happen to women and children, too. Many people have thinning hair or bald areas on their head. You can lose hair slowly or quickly. Whether or not your hair will eventually grow back depends on the cause. A family history of baldness, medical conditions or their treatments and many other things cause hair loss. The most common type of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia, also known as maleor female-pattern baldness. It tends to run in families and causes your hair to fall out gradually. As men get older, they may start to lose hair in the front of their scalp. The pattern of hair loss for women is different. Their hair may thin out all over their scalp, but is often most obvious along the part. Both men and women with androgenetic alopecia can apply medicines to their scalp to slow the progression of their hair loss. However, some medications are only FDA-approved for men. Some men (and occasionally women) opt for hair transplant surgery, in which tiny plugs of hair are moved from the back of the head to the front. This option depends on how much hair is available for a transplant. Another common type of hair loss is known as alopecia areata. Scientists recently discovered what causes this type of hair loss. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. The immune system, which normally helps protect your body from disease, starts attacking hair follicles, the part of the skin that hairs grow from. Usually, only small patches of hair on the scalp are lost. But in severe cases, hair all over the body may be lost. The hair loss might not be permanent, however, because hair follicles are not destroyed. They are just stuck in a resting state. Currently, there are no approved drugs for alopecia areata. However, an NIHfunded study recently discovered that a class of drugs called Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors can stop, and even reverse, the disease.Dr. Angela Christiano, a skin disease expert at Columbia University, showed that JAK inhibitors block the damaging effects of the immune system on hair follicles. Many people in her study who took the drug had their hair grow back. More clinical trials are underway to determine how safe and effective JAK inhibitors are for treatment of alopecia areata. I think its a hopeful time for patients with alopecia areata, says Dr. Christiano, who also has the disease. She hopes that the excitement around alopecia areata research will carry over to other types of hair loss, which tend to be understudied diseases. If you start losing clumps of hair or notice your hair thinning, check in with your doctor to help identify the cause, suggest possible treatments and advise you on how to manage the condition. Coping with the effects of hair loss on your head can be difficult, but there are many things you can do. Find somebody that you trust and just talk about whats going on, advises Kathleen Baxley, who is the chief of social work at the NIH Clinical Center. She oversees a team that counsels people in clinical studies, including those who lose their hair because of a treatment. It really helps folks a lot of the time just to tell their story. You can speak with a family member or close friend. Or, you can reach out to a counselor. Sometimes finding support groups helps, Ms. Baxley adds. Support groups meet in person and/or have discussions online. Take care of your hairNIH offers these tips for taking care of your hair and yourself should you start to notice thinning or missing strands: >> Be gentle. Use your comb or brush carefully. >> Cover up. Wear a hat, scarf, wig or hairpiece. It can protect your scalp from the sun. >> Use sunscreen. Protect bald, uncovered areas from sun damage. >> Try a new style. Ask your barber or hairstylist to make the most of your remaining hair. >> Get support. Share your feelings and get tips for coping with hair loss from others with the same challenge. Or, ask for support from a counselor.

This new knowledge base will be an educational resource to our physicians and assist them with the best patient-care advice. Not only have we exceeded those goals, we are enjoying numerous unanticipated accomplishments because of our Mayo affiliation. We have a collaboration with Mayo Clinic College of Medicine as a sponsor of NCHs new internal medicine residency program. We have had rotations of fourth-year Mayo Clinic-Florida general surgical residents and we look forward to future rotations of senior Mayo anesthesia residents. We benefit from Grand Rounds once or twice per month by Mayo professors, and we have easy access to eConsults that allow patients in Southwest Florida to have a Mayo physician consultation without traveling. Notably, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Frank Astors vision directed 72 NCH physicians and administrators in dyads to experience Mayos leadership course. Subsequently, other Mayo affiliates joined with NCH to share in the same culture-changing experience. Long term, our desire is to have our medical staff and colleagues assimilate Mayos patient-focused culture. As NCHs participants in the Mayo leadership course share their experience and insights with the rest of our medical staff, we grow our affiliation. During the celebration of the fiveyear milestone, we asked ourselves the seminal question: Where will we be at our 10-year anniversary? The end game is transformation as NCH aspires to be like Mayo. I anticipate therapeutic advancements, cultural changes, efficiency improvements, quality enhancements and payment modifications all encouraging everyone to emulate our Mayo colleagues and affiliates focused on helping patients live longer, happier and healthier lives.

In 25 years of dog ownership, that was a first. We live in Southern California, so ticks are a fact of life, but Harper doesnt typically go into areas where ticks are found. We dont have a yard, and shes not allowed on local hiking trails. I can only surmise that the ticks hitched a ride on me ick! after a hike and made their way onto Harper. Tick populations are increasing. And there arent just more of them; theyre being found in more places than in the past, says veterinary parasitologist Dr. Susan E. Little of Oklahoma State University. Milder winters; more white-tailed deer, which carry the tiny arachnids; and increasing development in formerly rural areas are among the factors in the ticks spread. Like me, you might never have had to worry about ticks before, but now is a good time to talk to your veterinarian about their prevalence in your area. Many tick species have moved out of their original habitats, carried away by migratory birds, coyotes and deer. One or more species of ticks can now be found in every state, including Alaska and Hawaii. Ticks used to be active from spring through fall, but warmer winters mean that some species are staying active as late as February, depending on where they are located. Thats bad news, since ticks are major carriers of diseases that affect humans as well as dogs and cats. Most of us are familiar with Lyme disease, but ticks also transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis and Cytauxzoon felis, which infects cats. The ticks that primarily transmit these debilitating and sometimes deadly diseases are the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis), the Lone Star tick (Amblyomma americanum) and the American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis). Protect yourself and your pets from tick-borne diseases with the following measures: Provide all your pets with lifetime parasite control. We always say to treat every pet every month all year long, Dr. Little says. Dogs and cats dont spread tick-borne diseases directly to their owners, but they can acquire diseases from ticks as well as bring ticks into the home or yard. And just because your dog or cat stays mainly indoors or lives in a certain geographic region doesnt mean hes not at risk. Ask your veterinarian which ticks and tick-borne diseases are common in your area and which product is best for protecting your animals. The information may have changed since you last learned about ticks. Apply tick-prevention products on a regular schedule. Its no longer effective to try to time parasite control to start in spring and stop after the second killing frost. Check your dog or cat for ticks any time he has been outdoors. Keep a tickremoval device on hand and know how to use it. Make your yard less welcoming to ticks by removing leaf litter, mowing the lawn frequently, keeping landscaping free of tall grass and brush and fencing your yard to prevent incursions by deer and other animals that carry ticks. A 3-foot swathe of wood chips or gravel between your lawn and wooded areas wont keep ticks away, but it does serve as a visual reminder that you are entering the tick zone. Use insect repellent on yourself, and wear protective clothing. After a hike or other outdoor excursion to tick-friendly wooded areas with tall grass, give yourself a cursory examination for the little bloodsuckers, so you dont drive them home to your pets.

Overstock Inventory Must Be Sold Even Below Cost, In Order To Make Room For New Inventory! THE DIVA DIARIESOnline dating? Make sure someone does some sleuthingYou might be surprised to learn that I have a part-time (nonpaying) job as a private detective. And its really a shame that its nonpaying, because Im pretty good at it. It all started several years ago when my girlfriend Jennifer started dating online, because really, is there any other way to date anymore? Just ask another one of my girlfriends, who happily walked down the aisle two weeks ago to marry the love of her life whom she met online at Plenty of Fish. I have plenty more newly married friends whove met on Match, Our Time, Bumble and others. But, back in the early 2000s, online dating was still pretty new and Jennifer was wading around in an unfamiliar pool when she met a guy online from Tampa. She wasnt bothered by the 125mile distance because he sounded so great. A successful attorney, he was divorced with a 7-year-old daughter and had just bought his dream home, a big house with five bedrooms. He started off messaging Jennifer and as the flirtation grew, they graduated to phone calls long, late-night phone calls the kind where no one wants to be the last to say goodbye. Things heated up and a couple of weeks later she agreed to meet him in person halfway, in Sarasota, for lunch. The more questions I asked her about the guy, however, the less she seemed to know about him. And she admitted that her intuition was telling her something she just didnt know what. So, she gave me his first and last names and I went to work. When I visited the Hillsborough County property appraisers website, I learned that the dude did not own a home, but he did own a small piece of land. When I GoogleEarthed the address, it turned out to be a mobile home (not that theres anything wrong with living in a mobile home, but what happened to the big house he bragged about?). Then I couldnt find any info to prove he was an attorney. But the worst news came when I checked out the clerk of courts website where I found his marriage license but no record of divorce. When Jennifer called to confront him, he admitted that he and his wife were newly separated. He said he was living in his uncles trailer, and he hoped to go back to school someday to be a lawyer and be able to buy his dream house. Needless to say, the lunch date was cancelled. Jennifer dodged a bullet, and since then, Ive had dozens of girlfriends, and even mere acquaintances, request my investigation skills. One friend who dates online a LOT has been known to text me with several names of potential boyfriends and two simple words: Please stalk. It was before Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram back when Jennifer almost dated a married man who lived with his uncle, so it took me a whole afternoon to get the skinny on Mr. Tampa. These days, such sleuthing is a piece of cake. You just need a last name. Yet youd be surprised how many women are hesitant to ask. One friend actually asked me, All I know is that his name is Dave and he lives in Naples. What can you find out about him? She told me she was afraid that if she asked his last name, he would assume she was going to Google him. The truth is, everybody Googles everyone nowadays. And, by the way, Google isnt enough. When I put on my detective hat, the first thing I check is the sheriffs website to see if a potential soul mate has been arrested. We all make mistakes, but if he was arrested for violence or something equally as scary, youll want to know. Then I click on over to the clerk of courts site for info on marriages, divorces, lawsuits, restraining orders and more. And the property appraisers site can tell us if his home is registered in his name only or if theres a wife on the deed. All of this takes less than 20 minutes. Recently, a friend called me with the good news that she had found the one and could I just make sure he wasnt married or a felon. I checked him out and gave her the all clear. She was thrilled and because shes a liberal Democrat, she was excited that they shared the same political views. Then why is he a registered Republican, and why is he wearing a Donald Trump shirt in one of his Instagram photos? I wanted to know. Unfortunately, detectives sometimes have to break a heart. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week w h s t h t a stephanieDAVIS


BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017A26 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ LOT OF PEOPLE, MOST OF THEM from somewhere other than DeSoto County, think ranching and its proudest offspring sport rodeoing have gone the way of Cracker cowboy Bone Mizell (1863 to 1921, may he rest in peace at a full gallop). Or the great western artist Frederick Remington (1861 to 1909, may he rethink his opinion of Crackers). Remington once drew Mr. Mizell slouched in his saddle, probably half drunk, and declared he didnt much like Florida Crackers because they were no-account.Those people would be wrong, just like Mr. Remington was wrong; Mr. Mizell was a skillful rustler and probably a nice guy, drunk or sober.

Ive always been a jockette, said Ms. Shea, membership director for Quail Creek Country Club in Naples and part of a big, sportsloving family. She played softball, basketball and field hockey and even flag football while growing up in Bethesda, Md. Her late father played football at the University of South Carolina and coached one of her sisters softball teams. Her brothers were high school football players and one sister played college basketball. I was a big old tomboy, Ms. Shea recalled fondly. Im the youngest of six. When youre the youngest of six, you just watch sports with your sisters and brothers. We were a big, competitive family. Yoga, golf and pickleball now satisfy her desire to put the body in motion. As a spectator, she enjoys rooting for Washington D.C.s pro franchises and locally, the sports programs of Florida Gulf Coast and Ave Maria universities. Not surprisingly, Ms. Shea is also a big believer in the importance of sports in fostering a vibrant, healthy community and as an economic driver. And if she is certain about anything, its the benefits to Collier County of building a multi-use, multi-million dollar, amateur sports complex in East Naples. Ive been of the philosophy that if you build it, they will come, said Ms. Shea, who is president of the Sports Council of Collier County, which is working with county officials on devising plans for the facility. Lighted, artificial turf fields for football, lacrosse, rugby and soccer, a 3,000seat covered stadium, eight baseballsoftball diamonds, a field house for indoor events and a 5K jogging trail are SHEA SEE SHEA, A27 Finance students invited to apply for CFA Society Naples scholarshipsCFA Society Naples, a nonprofit organization that brings together professionals in finance including wealth managers, financial advisers and analysts who adhere to ethical and professional standards within the investment industry, offers $1,000 academic scholarships to deserving university students who are studying finance.

ON THE MOVEBREHM BUZZACC0FOERSTER HOLCOMB HARTSFIELD SUAREZ TELISCHAK TISCHNER just a few of the options under consideration for a 60-acre parcel off Collier Boulevard, near I-75 and the City Gate development. Collier County Commissioners have voted to raise the countys bed tax by 5 percent, effective Sept. 1, to construct the sports complex, which is projected to cost $60 million to $80 million. The complex would dramatically expand recreation options for residents of eastern Collier County and boost the countys tourism economy by making it a year-round sports destination for tournaments and other athletic competitions and also by serving as the site of concerts and other community events, said Ms. Shea. Collier County is behind the eightball when it comes to sports, she said. Amateur sports are a $9 billion (a year) industry. Sports are 12 months out of the year and the tourism season here is really just the first four months of the year, maybe five. Not only would the countys hotels, restaurants and many tourist attractions reap the economic benefits of increased sports tourism, but the proposed sports complex could lead to increased commercial and residential development nearby, Ms. Shea added. The arrival of large employers in the area, such as Arthrex Inc. and the Hertz Corp., has helped fuel an influx of young families and children to Collier County, heightening the need for additional recreational facilities, she said. Ms. Shea moved to Collier County seven years ago from the Washington, D.C., area to be closer to her parents and to become area director of sales for Chartwell Hospitalitys SpringHill Suites in Naples and the Hampton Inn and Suites in Estero, as well as the Sarasota Inn and Suites.

I always knew Id end up here, she said about Southwest Florida. Id been coming here since I was 15 for spring breaks. Formed in 2006, the Sports Council of Collier Countys mission is to enhance the local quality of life and economy by promoting, acquiring and supporting youth and adult amateur sporting events. Ms. Shea joined the organization in 2012 and has been president for the last three years. Its just a lot of passionate volunteers who care a lot about sports and this community, she said of the groups membership. Her goal as president has been and remains, To continue what were doing. To stay focused and to help and be vocal about what we need to see at the complex. The county is very open to everyones ideas. They want to learn and hear what we feel is important.

A28 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAll-Florida Championship Rodeo Inc., will carry out its 90th soiree in a four-day extravaganza of the old cowboy arts, and some new ones.All of that comes courtesy of people who understand how important such arts remain in American culture, and how crucial they can be to the economy of a county that is not one of the states wealthiest and has been hard hit by citrus canker and other disasters only farmers and ranchers have to face, sometimes. When the rodeo was just a three-day event, it brought $24 million into the local economy, says Katie Marks, executive director. Last year, 18,000 people came to the Granddaddy, some 23 percent from Sarasota County, 18 percent from Lee County, and a slew from outside the region and even from overseas. Now, not only will the rodeo extend to four days beginning next March, but the $9 million arena, bolstered by an initial $3 million donation from the mining company Mosaic, will include almost 8,000 seats, 40 stalls in two barns, at first (more are planned later), and a wide range of state-of-the-art conveniences kitchens, indoor and outdoor livestock pens, and much more. And thats just to start with. Our engineers looked at the property and realized we have room for 144 stalls, someday well just have to raise the money, says Ms. Marks. Thats what the Arcadia Rodeo is doing now to finish the arena, she notes. Weve raised $6.1 million. Were over half way done, but this isnt a rich community and we need more money.A volunteer outfitArcadia Rodeo Inc. depends on volunteers. Everyone who works the rodeos here is a volunteer, says Ms. Marks. And the main rodeo is just one of 15 events. We have youth rodeos, we have team roping and barrel racing competitions, we have the cattlemens ranch rodeo. keep in mind these events are supported (with volunteers) by 4H, the FFA, the Boy Scouts, our local high school bands, all of them. The Mosaic Arena is also a monument to a community-wide effort that any region in American might envy. For one thing, Arcadia Rodeo Inc. has only two paid employees: Ms. Marks and her assistant. Extra monies go to area charities, to scholarships for students, to opportunities for everybody in the community. For another thing, the donor list represents many walks of life in the region. Naming donors include Ben Hill Griffin Inc., Doyle and Debbie Carlton III, the William G. Kayo Wells family and Terry and Susie Welles. Others include banks, ranches and farms, foundations, construction companies, developers, health-care companies and many individuals, some offering gifts in memory of a loved one who might have appreciated rodeo. The dream of such an arena isnt new in Arcadia. It began, recalls Ms. Marks, when Hurricane Charley hit the town and the traditional arena like a break-away bull 13 years ago this month. That required a big community effort to repair the old arena, which has hosted rodeos again for years. Plans may be in the works to take down that old arena when the new one is ready and thats not a happy thought for everybody. Call me sentimental, but the thought of that hurts my soul, says Cyndi Skates Widener, office manager at Sweet Cypress Ranch and a seventh generation Floridian. My granddaddy competed there, along with myself, my husband, and all three of our kids. Her daughter, Rachel Widener, won the Florida High School Reined Cow Horse Championship in June.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bigger Isnt BetterIt can seem that the bigger a mutual fund gets, the better, but thats not the case. The vast majority of managed stock funds fail to beat the overall market over long periods and thats partly due to their size. (According to the folks at Standard & Poors, for example, as of the end of 2016, fully 85 percent of all domestic large-cap stock mutual funds underperformed the S&P 500 over the past 10 years.) Managers of huge funds face challenges. They may not be able to invest more than 5 percent of their funds value in any one stock, for example, no matter how confident they are in it. They may also keep 5 percent or so of the funds value in cash, to cover investors withdrawals. Thats good, but those dollars can be a drag on the funds performance. Consider Fidelity Investments massive Contrafund, with its recent net asset value of $116 billion. It recently had a whopping $1.4 billion invested in Netflix shares, but that amounts to less than 1.3 percent of the funds net assets. When youre invested in hundreds of companies, the impact of standouts is diluted by the many less-stellar performances. Even if a manager wanted to spend 10 percent of a $116 billion funds value, $11.6 billion, on one company, hed run into problems. Buying many shares would drive the stock price up before he was finished buying. Also, imagine that he was very bullish on, say, the jewelry company Tiffany. Oops. Its entire market value is around $11.6 billion. He cant buy entire companies. If hes limited, as many managers are, to not buying more than 10 percent of any company, he can spend only about $1.16 billion on it. Its hard not to spread yourself too thin when $1.16 billion is a drop in your funds bucket. For most investors, index funds such as those based on the S&P 500 are the best solution. To see managed and index funds we have recommended, try our Rule Your Retirement newsletter for free at Patience, GrasshopperMy dumbest investment was in Berkshire Hathaway, which turned out to be a dog, despite many analysts at The Motley Fool and everywhere else fawning over it and its CEO, Warren Buffett. Well, Buffett is human, and he made a dumb decision when he bought the Precision Castparts company. But its decline started even before then. Its my fault for buying at the peak L.D., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre right that we and many other stock market enthusiasts like Buffett and his company, Berkshire Hathaway. We admire his terrific investment skills, buying stocks and whole companies (such as Precision Castparts) for Berkshire and racking up average annual gains of more than 20 percent over the past 51 years. We also admire the mix of businesses that Berkshire now encompasses, such as GEICO, Fruit of the Loom, Dairy Queen, Sees Candies, the BNSF railroad and Precision Castparts maker of cast and forged parts for aircraft engines and gas turbines which are likely to do well over the long run. We hope you hung on to your shares, as theyre up more than 35 percent since you wrote us two years ago. Successful investing requires that you know your holdings well and believe in them and that youre very patient. Great wealth, like Buffetts, is often built over decades. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Berkshire Hathaway.) Huge and Getting HugerFor most companies, reaching a market value that exceeds $100 billion means a gradual shift into maturity and a slowing of growth. Thats not the case at (Nasdaq: AMZN), though, despite its recent market value near $465 billion. How can that be? Well, the e-commerce revolution is just entering its adolescence. E-commerce accounted for only 8.7 percent of the $22 trillion worldwide retail market in 2016. Clearly, theres plenty of room for Amazon to continue to expand its market share and sales over the long term. Amazon has been excelling across a broad range of important segments, including e-commerce, cloud computing services, new product hardware (Alexa devices) and original TV shows. Furthermore, it has demonstrated strong revenue growth across its business revenue in Amazons second quarter was up 25 percent year over year. Profits have been slow to appear, as Amazon has invested in growing its business and has competed on price to gain market share, but its posting profits now and has been generating free cash flow since the early 2000s. For patient long-term investors who can stomach some volatility, Amazon remains one of the best large-cap growth stocks around. Its shares can seem overvalued, but throughout the companys history, it has tended to seem overvalued while continuing to grow. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Two guys, named Fair and Isaac, founded me in 1956 with $800, aiming to improve business decisions with data. Today, Im based in Silicon Valley, and my anti-fraud systems protect 2.6 billion credit cards. Fully 95 percent of Americas largest financial institutions and all the 100 largest U.S. credit card issuers are my clients, and more than 100 billion of my flagship credit scores have been sold. Unsurprisingly, about three-quarters of all mortgages have been originated with insights from my credit scores. My technology even helps airplanes and rental cars be where they need to be. Who am I? (Answer: FICO) Future Values TodayQCan you explain the time value of money? W.L., PhoenixAThe time value of money reflects the belief that money received in the future will be worth less than money received today. Most of us would rather get a dollar today than a dollar in 10 years. We could invest it and it would grow to more than a dollar in 10 years. Or we might buy something with it like a slice of pizza. In 10 years, due to inflation, that slice of pizza will probably cost more.Stock analysts consider the time value of money when they use fancy discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis to estimate the value of companies. (This is complicated, but useful to know.) They create DCF models for companies they study, estimating how much cash the companies will generate over time. Future earnings are then discounted at a rate that can be tricky to determine. As a simplified example, imagine that Home Surgery Kits Inc. (Ticker: OUCHH) will earn $3 per share next year, and youre discounting that at 10 percent. Take 1 and add 0.10 (for the 10 percent), getting 1.10. Now divide $3 by 1.10, and youll get $2.73. So the present value of those future earnings is $2.73. ***QWhat are balanced mutual funds? M.R., Butler, Pennsylv aniaABalanced funds hold both stocks and bonds, offering gains from stock appreciation and stock dividends, as well as income from bond interest. Many fund families offer balanced funds, with varying asset mixes. You dont necessarily need a balanced fund, though, as you can always invest in separate stock and bond funds. Consider including some international holdings for diversification. (Many foreign economies are growing much faster than Americas.) Want more information about stocks?

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 contracts remain strongThe 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.

Save up to $15,000See builders for detailsBabcock Ranch make learning funSolar-powered town seeks to attract families with high-quality educationMonths before the first residents of Babcock Ranch start settling, the nations first solar-powered town is delivering on the promise of putting education first. Babcock Neighborhood School (BNS) opened August 10th at full capacity in Kindergarten through grade six. For developer Syd Kitson, it is the realization of a dream, and the fulfillment of a promise made when plans for the innovative, environmentally-friendly new town were first unveiled more than a decade ago. I think the school is very important for several reasons. Number one we want to be multi-generational and to get young families, you have to have a school. When people come to Babcock Ranch they dont have to hope that great schools are something that will happen sometime in the future the school is here right now, today, Kitson said. Even more important than that, is to give these young students an opportunity to thrive, have a great education, and hopefully prepare them for high school and ultimately for what they want to do later on in life. Enrollment at BNS is open to all students who qualify to attend Charlotte County public schools including outof-county students who can be admitted on a space-available basis. As a public charter, BNS must comply with all testing and accountability measures of any other public school but with greater flexibility to implement innovative teaching approaches and curriculum. Our school is very engaged in project based learning not the old you do a project, and then it ends up in the dumpster these are very real projects with real world applications, principal Shannon Treece explained. What works for first grade does not work for 5th grade but at every age the experience of working together, hearing all voices, then working together to take a project from concept to completion this is the type of education everyone wants for their children. Its not driven by textbooks but whats happening in the community and whats happening around them. Just a week into the school year, students and faculty were enthusiastically settling into the hands-on, project-based learning approach that sets BNS apart. Kindergartners gathered to read in circle time and dance to Go Noodle videos during their brain break. Multiple grade levels mixed together for nature walks. Third graders were building towers with spaghetti and marshmallows thinking critically and collaborating to improve structures, celebrating what worked, and circling back to redesign when it didnt. In 4th grade, students discussed the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and wrote their reflections on the topic. And in 5th and 6th grade, students held a rap singoff on the theme of geography.

Camel Press. 264 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95. Jean Harringtons new Listed and Lethal mystery series shares some features with her five-part Murders by Design series (recently reprinted by Harlequin). The main similarity is that the protagonist in each series is a professional woman who teams up romantically with a law enforcement officer and then cannot avoid becoming involved in his investigations. In the earlier series, Deva Dunne, lives and works in the interior design trade in upscale Naples. In the Listed and Lethal stories, Honey Ingersoll is a real estate agent in rural Arkansas. Differences in education and social class also distinguish the two characters. As Honey pursues a real estate deal on the outskirts of Eureka Falls, she chances upon the corpse of an attractive, flashy young woman she had seen at Ridleys Real Estate just recently. Though Tallulah Bixby is dressed to kill, someone got to her first. Soon after, the owner of property in the same neighborhood as Honeys corpse discovery is also found murdered. You guessed it discovered by Honey. Hmm. She might be a suspect, except for the fact that she is the narrator. And speaking of discoveries, Honey finds a couple of uncut diamonds near the crime scene. The novels two main centers of interest are the murders and Honeys love life. With respect to the murders, there seems to be an orchestrated buying-up of properties in the area surrounding the murders, suggesting the need to keep the purchases secret. Or maybe its the rumors concerning the diamonds lying about. Murder is one way of shutting someone up. When readers find out that a major casino project is being planned, they might surmise that some in the town are against it. Honeys love life? Up until now, a series of poor choices. But whats an attention-needy, somewhat insecure girl to do? These days, Honey is idealizing her attractive boss, Sam Ridley, who is among those showing an interest in those rundown properties. She has imagined getting a dazzling kiss from him for a long time, but now can Sam possibly be on Honeys suspect list? Shes been an invaluable employee, but he has plenty of cause to worry about her recent strange behavior. At the same time, Sheriff Matt Rameros has been giving Honey a lot of attention, even while trying to take a professional stance toward her. One of the most enjoyable elements in Murder on Pea Pike is the growth of the Honey/Matt relationship, especially as dramatized through their conversations. His frustrations at her lack of caution and her strong-mindedness are amplified by how much he cares for her and wants to protect her from real dangers as well as from her own impulsiveness. Enjoyable secondary characters include Mrs. Otis, an older woman who works in Sams real estate office and becomes more and more a mother figure for Honey. She is wise, caring and less stodgy than she seems at first. Others include banker Cletus Dwyer, with whom Honey has a mild flirtation; Lila Lott, scheming femme fatale daughter of Senator Lott; and Saxby Winthrop, Honeys marriage-shy former beau. Ms. Harrington does just enough to give us a cultural snapshot of Eureka Falls without becoming heavy-handed. She makes good use of Josies, a popular diner: The sausage and hot cakes aroma spilling out onto Main Street lured in anybody who had the price of a greasy good breakfast. Snatches of conversations inside the eatery interact with the ongoing portrait of the physical place. The author Harrington has an eye for the ridiculous in human nature, and she takes advantage of her characters foibles to concoct a spirited, suspenseful tale with equal measures of comedy and compassion.About the authorA former English and writing teacher, Naples resident Jean Harrington burst out of retirement once her passion for writing possessed her. Before the two mystery series mentioned above, she published two historical novels set in Ireland: The Barefoot Queen and In the Lions Mouth. She has won several fiction awards and served two terms as president of the Romance Writers of America Southwest Florida chapter. Read more about this fine author at Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. k i h d m i HARRINGTON s e d d y t r e S a h w st Sh ha a l w h p r t ow O en j M is Ho n shi p ma t co n v

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYhe said of his larger-than-life persona onscreen. Having been a doctor, seeing what real life and death situations truly are I realize at the end of the day this is all silliness, but it really is a good time. Thats right. Mr. Iseman left a career in medicine to pursue his passion in standup comedy after completing medical school at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City and a residency in internal medicine in his hometown of Denver, Colo. Standup is my first love, he s aid in a telephone interview last week. The immediacy of standing on stage, the crowd letting you know when its funny. When its going well, riding the wave, feeling such a rush, theres nothing like it. He concedes his timing couldve been better as far as his career decisionmaking was concerned, but he thinks its never too late to take a shot at something you love. Deep down, a lot of us can feel that itch. My advice: Take a shot, especially when youre young. Even if you fall flat on your face, get back up. You just learned a lesson.No laughing matterOn paper, medicine seemed like the perfect career path for Mr. Iseman. I always loved math and science, and I actually really enjoyed studying, he said. But as Dr. Iseman, he never felt like he was helping people as much as he could. And he suffered immense guilt not being fully invested in the profession. Honestly, it came down to the fact that my heart wasnt in it, he said. There are a lot of jobs you can do halfway, punch a time clock, go home. But medicine is a calling; people give you this sacred trust of placing their lives in your hands. When he decided to give up medicine and pursue standup, some people called him crazy. My friends who knew me said, Youre not that funny. What are you doing? Youre walking away from a career! he recalled. Hes grateful that his parents even his M.D. father supported his lifechanging decision. But still, It would have been a lot easier to quit med school before I graduated. Within three weeks of moving to L.A., he knew hed never go back to a life of scrubs and medical charts. Now he spends his time on the road doing standup and hosting American Ninja Warrior.Its not about winningMr. Iseman co-hosts a unique show in ANW. The program began on the little-known G4 network. Although the network failed, the show survived to start a run on NBC that continues four years later. It has achieved a cult-like following across the country, with competitors of all ages trying their best to get through an obstacle course that can feel daunting even for viewers sitting at home on the couch. The salmon ladder is one of the more iconic challenges in the regional qualifying rounds: The Ninja hangs from a horizontal bar 20-30 feet over an icy pool and must leap (along with the bar) up a series of four to six pegs to advance to the next obstacle. Each obstacle pushes the limits of strength, balance and coordination. Ninjas who successfully complete the finals course in their region move on to the national finals in Las Vegas, where they face the vaunted four-stage course, Mount Midoriyama, which was designed in Japan. The winner takes home $1 million. Only one Ninja has done it in eight years, and yet, the number of competitors continues to skyrocket in the United States. The most amazing thing is unlike any other competitive show, its not about having one winner, Mr. Iseman said, adding Ninjas have victorious runs in so many different ways, even when they dont complete a challenge. Sometimes they dont hit the buzzer, but theyre better for pushing themselves, taking a shot, he said. Their lives changed just by seeing what they can do. I love seeing people come out and say they were on the couch a year ago, and here they are competing in front of millions of viewers. Helping handIn addition to becoming host of a hit TV show and carving out a niche as a standup comic in the years since he stopped making doctors rounds, Mr. Iseman has raised a lot of money for a cause very dear to his heart. And hands. The former physician also happens to be reigning champion of The Celebrity Apprentice, having used that platform to raise nearly $1 million for the Arthritis Foundation, which he got involved in after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 31. Now 46, his experiences with the ailment and as a doctor inform his comedic leanings and allow him to help those who were diagnosed before revolutionary drugs came out to treat RA. I was lucky to respond to this new class of drugs that came out in 1998, right before I was diagnosed, he said, adding treatment for RA was the Wild West before those drugs. I know that my life right now is in large part due to groups like the Arthritis Foundation that put the money out there to fund the research to discover these drugs. I would love someday to hear this illness is something of the past, something we found the cure for. Taping of The Celebrity Apprentice wrapped up in early 2016, just as show host Donald Trump was starting to gain attention in the race for president. Mr. Iseman was disheartened by the political cloud that hung over the reality show by the time it aired almost a year later. Nobody even gave (Trump) a thought, he recalled of the filming. Arnold Schwarzenegger was the boss. It was in Los Angeles instead of New York The show got politicized, which is unfortunate. In the end, it raised a few million dollars on behalf of some awesome charities. It was disappointing because we worked so hard on the show and then (politics) overshadowed it a little bit. Despite the distractions, hes grateful for the experience of being part of The Celebrity Apprentice. He got to meet one of his biggest idols in Mr. Schwarzenegger, along with stepping into the pressure cooker that every athlete on American Ninja Warrior endures. With Ninja, I risk nothing Im the host. Apprentice was the total opposite. Every second I was on camera being scrutinized. Its a reminder of what Ninja athletes go through, he said. Most of them didnt play sports at a high level Theyre leading normal lives, and here they are competing in front of thousands and millions at home. The twists and turns of his career dont get lost on Mr. Iseman. He recalled a birthday party he went to recently for his new friend, Mr. Schwarzenegger. He sat at a table with the guest of honor, actor Tom Arnold and legendary film director James Cameron, among other iconic film actors and celebrities. I get to go on stage for 45 minutes and tell jokes, he said. I talk about Ninjas. Its ridiculous!

For 19 years, summer ARTScool has provided instruction to kids ages 5-17 through theme-, mediaand age-based classes taught by area artists and art teachers. One of the most popular courses year after year is a clay class where children learn the process of sculpting, glazing and baking a piece of art. Its essentially just a hands-on, messy sculpting class, Mr. Sabin said. Its always been one of the most popular because there are so many stages to making the sculptures. The first few days they just mess around with the clay and they all create something unique, and later they get to glaze it and add color its always the most popular. Other courses in the summer curriculum included painting, drawing, paper sculpting, basket building and pattern making.

Paid: $45 The Skinny: I have found the Holy Grail of kitchen appliances. Or so you would think, based on the text I received from my friend and colleague Jan Norris, the noted food writer: OMG! Where and how much? she responded to a photo I sent her. I will be glad to double your money. THE FIND:An early 1950s pink Sunbeam Mixmaster stand mixerI love the 1950s at least when it comes to the California ranch-style houses that Michigan Homes built in our Rainbow Groves neighborhood in Fort Myers. Most have been altered, but when I was a boy, they were painted in pastels and jewel tones pale greens, shell pinks, turquoise and yellow. It was positively pretty. Anyone who has driven along McGregor Boulevard or driven through the neighborhoods of Tanglewood or Morse Shores, also in Fort Myers, has seen homes by Michigan. Ross was the big builder of similar homes in the Palm Beaches think of all those 1,200to 1,800-square-foot houses you see around Forest Hill Boulevard and Olive Avenue in West Palm Beach or along Park Avenue in Lake Park. Those are Ross homes. They were modest, but well built. Sixty years later, they stand the test of time. I remember being parked in a high chair in my grandparents yellow kitchen. Grandma stood at the yellow GE cooktop heating up Campbells tomato soup and grilling a Velveeta sandwich (they called it toasted cheese). The kitchen had a matching GE wall oven. When Grandma baked a cake, she blended the ingredients with a yellow Hamilton Beach hand mixer my sister now owns. The refrigerator they brought from Indiana was professionally painted yellow to match. That post-World War II era was a time of great economic expansion, and my grandparents fit right in, moving to Fort Myers in their mid-40s. Their home remains a beauty. My mom remembers that the quality shone through when the place was new, from the sparkling terrazzo floors to the shiny enamel kitchens and glistening white gravel roofs. Forget the Hoosier cupboards of the past and bulky iron sinks with drainboards and a curtain to hide the pipes. Built-in was better, designers decided. The cooking spaces were efficient and pretty. One neighbor, Joy Bell, had a pink kitchen, complete with a rose-hued fridge. As I remember, my grandparents nextdoor neighbors had a turquoise kitchen, replete with a built-in refrigerator it seemed the whole neighborhood availed itself of the gas stove in 1960, after Hurricane Donna left the area without power. Hurricanes aside, it was swank. These were the days before shabby was chic. No self-respecting decorator or housewife, for that matter, would have settled for anything less than matching appliances and accessories. My own 1955 kitchen still boasts the original yellow Formica Cracked Ice pattern laminate on its counters and backsplash. When I sanded the cupboard doors, I found traces of the original matching yellow paint underneath the coats of white. Im sure the appliances of the day also matched. What was modern then now is vintage. When I see a 1950s kitchen or its accessories, it takes me back to my youth. After all, there no finer meal than a toasted Velveeta sandwich served with canned soup that was stirred by the hand of a loving grandmother. She didnt know how much I had paid at the time either Of course, I had a similar reaction when I spotted the mixer on the shelf of the thrift store. Truth is, you dont see these pastel mixers of the 1950s very often. Turquoise also is hard to find, and I regret that I left my grandmother Dorothys yellow Mixmaster in her Georgia kitchen hey, the truck was FULL. These pink mixers are special. On eBay, they start at around $60 for one with no bowls. This one is missing its small bowl and its juice attachment. But at nearly 70 years old, it still revs up to full speed with no problem. In fact, the only problem I have is finding a proper place to display it. If I cant find one, something tells me a certain food journalist will be acquiring it.

H00616 8/16 PUZZLES CHOW TIME 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.

F I LM C APS U L E SWind River 1/2(Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille) In a frigid and remote Wyoming territory, a hunter/tracker (Mr. Renner) and inexperienced F.B.I. agent (Ms. Olsen) search for the murderer of a teenage girl (Ms. Asbille). The frostiness of the snow-covered terrain provides a nice texture to the compelling story; too bad the last act is a bit weak. Rated R.Logan Lucky (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) The Logan siblings (Mr. Tatum, Mr. Driver, Riley Keough) and career criminal Joe Bang (Mr. Craig) plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the biggest race of the year. Its a fine return to form for director Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11) and is full of cameos to keep you smiling. Rated PG-13.The 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 1/2(Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie) An unhappily married woman (Ms. Pugh) in mid-1800s England has an affair with a groundskeeper (Mr. Jarvis) and will stop at nothing to keep it going. The story is dark and twisted, but the real revelation is the emergence of Ms. Pugh, who is superb. Rated R.Atomic Blonde (Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella) British Secret Agent Lorraine (Ms. Theron) is sent to Berlin in 1989 to retrieve a list of secret agents thats fallen into the wrong hands. The story is too complex for its own good, but the action especially one on a stairwell toward the end are excellent. Rated R.Dunkirk 1/2(Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh) The brave actions of individuals on land, at sea and in the air during the WWII Battle of Dunkirk are chronicled in director Christopher Nolans (Inception) latest. Its superb filmmaking per usual for Mr. Nolan: Briskly edited, great of use of sound and bold images that immerse you in the action. Rated PG-13.Lost in Paris (Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva) Canadian librarian Fiona (Ms. Gordon) has never left home, but ventures off to Paris after receiving a letter from her aunt (Ms. Riva) asking her to come. Hijinks and hilarity ensue. A silly French comedy in the style of Jacques Tati and the great silent comedians, its quirky and playful in all the best ways. Not Rated (but nothing objectionable).

YesThe problem with a bad ending is that it becomes the only thing people remember. No matter how good a movie is leading up to the conclusion, it can all be undone/ undermined by what happens in those precious final minutes. This is relevant in terms of The Trip To Spain because, for the most part, its a witty travelogue following two British comedians as they try to make one another laugh while waxing philosophical about life and love. Theyre smart and although their humor is sometimes dry, we like them. And then the ending happens and youre thinking what the? as the credits roll. The comedians are Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and this is the third time theyve travelled together on screen: The first was The Trip through England in 2011, then The Trip To Italy in 2014. Now theyre hitting Spain, once again playing versions of themselves and this time channeling Don Quixote, the Spanish Civil War, the Inquisition, etc. They even find a dinosaur monument to visit, which leads to some barbed one-liners and the best John Hurt impression youll ever hear. Speaking of impressions, there are plenty of them. Youll have to decide for yourself whether Mr. Coogan or Mr. Brydon does the better Mick Jagger, Marlon Brando, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, David Bowie, Woody Allen and/or Michael Caine (among others), but this much is for sure: Itll make you smile to watch them easily morph into these celebrities, not to mention wish you could do impressions nearly as well. Impressions aside, the real appeal of the film is the chemistry and conversation between the two stars. Now three movies in, director Michael Winterbottom once again uses the same formula of driving through the country, stopping at off-thebeaten-path fine dining establishments and staying at posh hotels while visiting notable landmarks. Each stop is part of a roughly 60-page outline that provides the shell of the movie, which is as close to a shooting script as this project gets. Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon are given a loose plot to follow and suggestions for conversation during each meal they share, but theyre largely on their own to improvise the dialog which usually meets with success. Its when the conversation isnt as successful, however, that The Trip To Spain struggles. At times its a bit too chatty for its own good, with some segments slightly overstaying their welcome and making the movie about 15 minutes too long (its 108 minutes). The real offense in this regard, however, is the 10-minute epilogue that shifts drastically in tone and clearly shouldve been left on the cutting room floor. It doesnt work at all, and leaves the film on a sour note rather than a witty one. Not sure what the filmmakers were thinking, but its a mistake. Still, its the journey, not the destination, that matters, and in this case the journey is fun, funny and clever enough to make The Trip To Spain a trip worth taking. n t b i a t dan >> Director Michael Winterbottom and producer Melissa Parmenter explored Spain on their own, eating at all the restaurants, etc., in order to determine the route costars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon would take in the lm.

It was easy to miss in its former spot in an old 7-Eleven on a back road off Green Boulevard, but not anymore. This is the place to go for authentic tacos that focus on the meats and need few accompaniments. I cant tell you all the offerings because there is no menu readily available, but I could recognize my tried and true favorites, pork and beef, sizzling away in large, shallow kettles that guests can salivate over while mulling their options. The only dressing they get or need is a squeeze of lime, a sprinkle of cilantro and maybe the side of spicy tomatillo salsa they slide in the carton. There is no dining space, so grab and go. One More Thing: 7 Food Mart is a veritable emporium of Latin foodstuffs, cosmetics, medicines and more. Its a really cool place a privately owned grocery, if you can believe it and worthy of an extra few minutes to peruse the merchandise, butcher counter, hot food offerings and massive wall of bottled soft drinks. The photo here shows an elusive Mexican Pepsi, which uses real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. I promise, you can tell the difference. THE DI S H

For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari, and then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Figs Grille, 25987 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Figs consistently upholds a high level of quality in food and service undoubtedly thanks to the impeccable standards of chef-owner Sam Tadros. Time has taken no toll on the plush dining room, with its beautiful wall tapestries, Moroccan-style lamps and rich palette of garnet and gold. Those whove only experienced calamari battered and fried may find Figs grilled version a happy revelation: Long, tender tubes of squid are charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds then marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. Fried shrimp are lightly breaded and garnished with delicious figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze. Fig chutney and port wine sauce give roasted duck a fruity flourish. A lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc proved a heavenly pairing for miso-marinated black cod, served with sides of spinach sauted with tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesanangel hair pasta cake.

I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria, but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. Try not to gorge. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was perfect. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that I recommend for sharing. The cioppino was full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, provided a refreshing end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 The Crust, 8004 Trail Blvd., Naples; 244-8488 This popular pizza spot at the Pavilion Shopping Center has added a second, much-needed larger location just a few miles away on U.S. 41. About four times the size of the original (which remains open), it serves the same Midwest-style pizza in the former Big Als space. Try an old-fashioned soda we loved the Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush made with real sugar rather than high-fructose corn syrup. A Caesar was fresh with a mild dressing. A house salad had good ingredients but needed a more assertive dressing than the house-made Champagne vinaigrette. A 10-inch barbecue pizza had a thin, crisp crust topped with smoky barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onions, smoked gouda, provolone and cilantro. My companion chose one with mushrooms, Kalamata olives and basil. Both were excellent. Service is efficient and pleasant. Full bar.

It is surely that „ and so much more. The younger and more freewheeling sibling of nearby Sea Salt, it offers a casual approach to dining but a serious attitude toward the preparation of food and the delivery of service. That doesnt surprise me, as it is the brainchild of acclaimed chef/restaurateur Fabrizio Aielli and his wife, Ingrid, two of the most gracious and generous people you will find in the restaurant business. Although food and beverage is their business, it is also their passion. I have seen Mr. Aiellis eyes light up as he watches people enjoy his food. Mrs. Aielli frequently can be seen greeting guests and joining them for a course or two. While they arent seen as much at Barbatella as at Sea Salt, their philosophy of warm hospitality and culinary excellence are expertly executed by their carefully chosen staff. From those who greet you at the door and inquire as to your seating preference „ outside in the lovely courtyard along Third Street South, indoors in the bar or the quieter dining room with adjoining alcove „ to the well-informed servers, customers are properly tended to every step of the way. The cuisine is Italian but might not be the Italian to which you are accustomed. At Barbatella, meals mirror those enjoyed over long, lazy evenings in a trattoria in Venice, the town from which Mr. Aielli hales. It might start with a selection of cheese from the mozzarella bar, which offers buffalo mozzarella, burrata, burattina and a selection of other mozzarellas as well as marinated olives, grilled eggplant and zucchini, cipollini onions, prosci utto P arma, speck, other meats and cheeses, making it possible to craft your own platter of cheese, charcuterie and antipasti. Dont fill up because theres so much more to explore. For starters, consider crispy calamari served with fried artichokes and lemon aioli. Or charred octopus with fingerling potatoes, celery, tomato and cipollini. As is traditional, theres a pasta section, filled with homemade pastas including saffron cavatelli with langostino, peas and mascarpone prosecco sauce, for example, and fettuccine with shrimp and linguini with Pine Island clams. For the meat course, choose from veal Parmigiana, slow-roasted pork, a mixed grill, a hearty steak or perhaps seafood prepared grilled or in a variety of styles. Should you feel like something more casual, consider one of the wood-fired pizzas. There is much to choose from but it isnt the usual suspects and virtually nothing comes buried beneath a blanket of red sauce and cheese. The flavor resides in the ingredients and the deft use of lighter sauces. The charred octopus with fingerling potatoes, celery, tomatoes and sweet little cipollini ($16) began with tender, smoky chunks of octopus surrounded by the perfectly cooked vegetables topped with celery leaves. A fragrant bowl of black mussels oreganata ($14) held plump mussels in their shells swimming in a well-seasoned tomato sauce. It came with a crisp wedge of garlic bread ideal for soaking up the remaining broth. We shared a pasta dish and the kitchen obligingly divided it for us. The orecchiette ($22) was studded with broccoli rabe, savory bits of pork sausage and dry pieces of ricotta. The little pastas, which resemble small ears, were just right for this satisfying but not overly filling dish. And, by the way, half a portion is just right if you plan on trying the meats and seafood. A 12-ounce black Angus steak ($39) was beautifully charred on the outside, blushing and juicy within served atop olive oil whipped potatoes. They were perhaps the only part of the meal I didnt l ove, however, as the olive oil didnt lend the same lush mouthfeel and flavor that b utter does. A dish of seared sea scallops ($38) with Tuscan beans, wilted spinach and lemon caper sauce was the star of the meal, the four large scallops perfectly cooked and enhanced by the lightly applied sauce. The beans and spinach could have been a meal unto themselves. From the dessert menu, the torta della nonna ($8) called to me. Its a simple lemon cake with patisserie cream with a delicate flavor and texture thats light and refreshing after a large meal. My companions choice of Death by Chocolate ($8) was a good-sized wedge of fudgy indulgence. The menu had described it as coming with berry coulis, which is a thick sauce made from pureed, strained fruit. Instead, there was an array of fresh blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. They were flavorful, but we were a little disappointed at the absence of the sauce. I failed to mention it earlier, but there is a good selection of wines, although not nearly as extensive as that at Sea Salt. Nonetheless, our server was helpful in guiding us to an Antinori Bruciato, a blend of cabernet, merlot and syrah that worked surprisingly well with our wide-ranging meal. (Wines priced at less than $100 are 50 percent off on Sundays during summer months.) It was difficult to take leave of our lovely table tucked in an alcove off the main dining room overlooking the bustling courtyard. Barbatella is indeed spirited, but its also welcoming and charming. As often happens in Italy at trattorias, youll leave feeling as though you have made a whole new set of friends. Charred octopus is delicious served with fingerling potatoes, cipollini onions and celery leaves. Black mussels oreganata in tomato sauce make a light and flavorful starter. The kitchen knows how to sear sea scallops perfectly, pairing them with Tuscan beans and spinach.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLY karen Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor Barbatella1290 Third St. S., Naples; 263-1965 Ratings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: >> Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $10-$14; pizzas, $18-$21; pastas, $22-$26; entrees, $29-$39 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: At the bar, conventional tables inside and on the patio >> Specialties of the house: Italian fare, wood- red pizzas, gelato >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: On the street >> Website:
