MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYOther AmericansSo we need a lot of help. Weve been hit by forces outside our control. Like the night our parents fell in love or lust and passed on our genetics. Did we have a choice? Like the fact the old man took a job in South Florida years ago. He could have stayed in Indiana or New Jersey, for Gods sake, couldnt he? And here we are through no fault of our own. Popped suddenly by the biggest hurricane ever to roar out of the Atlantic. Clearly, this is Obamas fault. And its Hillarys fault, too, for letting Benghazi happen (just kidding, you lefty dogooders). Meanwhile, were busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin for a train, feelin near as faded as my jeans, as Janis Joplin used to say in an elegant metaphor for trouble. The hurricanes over now. Not. The aftereffects might be as devastating as the steel-toed boots of the man who kicks you on the ground after he already knocked you down. Or woman. The storm was, after all, Irma. We can pick ourselves up alone if we have to, sure. Here comes the next storm, but so what? What about those North Koreans? How about the Red Sox? Remember those gas stations that ran out of fuel and those big-chain stores that couldnt even keep their shelves resupplied with water days before Irma ever arrived? Remember them? So many questions. Miami, wheres the water? a Facebook friend of mine posted, looking for help as the storm approached on Wednesday night a week ago. Shed had not a single reply when I saw her question. The stores were all sold out, those bastards. But who really cares? Bottom line now: We need some help. And fortunately, theres somebody who can give it to us. The Canadians? The Mexicans (they helped with Harvey, in Texas. Remember that, so long ago)? The Lakota Sioux or the Navajo? Tibetan monks? My late, never-say-die father or my friend Steve Nelson, at 19 once the youngest officer in the Marine Corps, slamming down in his Cobra gunship to get us out of this goddamn mess? They would if they could. But they cant. Oh yeah, Putin. Ill bet you a buck to your penny old Vladimir Vladimirovitch tries to step in and help and why? Because hes such a nice guy. Hes just misunderstood, is all. Yeah, right. But there is somebody you can count on, whether youre churchless or not, like I am whether you belong to the Holy American Indignation Disciples of the Lord Pabst Blue Ribbon Church of Roller Coaster Commerce, Hard Liquor, Soft Liquor, Guns, Music and Sex, or say, the Catholic Church, the Synagogue of Yahweh or the Holy Mosque of Muhammad. Or whether you dont. So whos going to wade into the mess to help, like Jesus, only not as good looking? Why, its the family, of course. Remember them? The family. Also known as wait for it Other Americans. Other Americans can and will help you: cops, firefighters, the National Guard, a variety of professionals and volunteers from agencies north to south. People like you and me. And those of us in need dont have to pay for the help, not directly, because weve helped people in need, too. And we will again. Since about 1932, those Other Americans can and will help you whether they feel like it, or not. And why? Because weve decided collectively that were all family. Yessir, thats how it works. Were all family. Were all really just a bunch of kick-ass, take-names socialists, disguised as fierce individualists. Nothing like a little trouble to prove to yourself: Youre a socialist, too, by God, and a member of this family, whether youre a fierce individualist or not. Consider our shared history for a moment before you call the nearest help agency: By 1932 when the Great Depression had gotten fully underway, 12 million Americans, a cool quarter of the labor force, had no work. And they werent farmers. So they and their families a lot more Americans began to starve. Soup lines had been established since 1929, but at first they were private efforts, sponsored by churches and by people like the mafia kingpin Al Capone. Capone set up a place in Detroit that could give unemployed men and their families three meals a day. Wonderful as it probably was for those who got to the food, all of that fell woefully short of helping everybody who needed it, from north to south and east to west. There are people alive today who were there. Its not long ago, anymore than Harvey, in the wake of Irma, is long ago. And that need made socialists of us Americans. As people began to starve Other Americans stepped in, church or no church. Gang or no gang. They were Other Americans, and they called themselves the United States Government. Us, in other words. They (we) paid taxes. And some of that tax money they used to help people in trouble old people and little kids and jobless working people. And all of them, those giving the help and those taking it, went on to win World War II and to create civil rights and to get us here. Where once again, some of us need help and the rest of us are going to help them, whether we like it or not. Thats America, baby, a socialist nation of 315 million very decent Other Americans. Love it or, as they used to say, leave it.

Back then, women earned only 59 cents for every dollar a man earned. More than 50 years have passed. Call me impatient, but it seems like 50-plus years ought to have been enough time to close and end the wage disparity associated with womens wages. But, no, it wasnt. The latest study from The Womens Policy Research Institute reports: In most cases, women, in comparison to men, earn about 82 percent of the amount a man grosses, based on a fulltime weekly pay scale. The earning disparity is greater for women of color. Says the report, black women earn about 68 percent of what white men typically make, while Latino women earn 62 percent compared to white men. The numbers in Florida are similar, although slightly better overall. Women who hold a year-round, full-time job make 87 cents for every dollar made by men. Black, Hispanic and Asian women working full-time and year-round do more poorly. For every dollar made by men, they make 61 cents, 60 cents and 79 cents, respectively. The cumulative effect of the wage disparity is significant. It represents in Florida a loss of income to women and their dependents of at least $5,500 annually, and its worse for women of color. It isnt just a smaller paycheck. These lost earnings could be used for house payments, car payments, tuition, doctor bills, new shoes, braces, food on the table you name it. Progress has been made. But think of all the time in the bottle that has been consumed by efforts to eliminate the pay inequities women workers experience. If you were a woman of childbearing age in 1963 (when the Equal Pay Act became law), you or a friend now may have grown daughters who are now raising daughters of their own. They are a single generation among multiple generations of women that suffered disparagement of their worth and value because of their gender. That ancestral tree of dissed females probably includes Millennials thrice-great-granny, their twice-greatgranny, their great -granny, just plain granny and their own mom. Thats a lot of greats who didnt merit the benefit of fair and equitable pay as compared to what the menfolk earned in occupations historically denied to women. Jobs deemed suitable only for women narrowed their opportunity and excluded them from occupations requiring large numbers of workers. Wise men mansplained this away as necessary and appropriate. Women did not have the stamina, strength, temperament, intellectual capacity, skills and/or qualifications. They had babies, meals to cook, houses to clean and husbands to look after. Men were men and women were their subordinates. It was once inconceivable that women could be lawmakers, doctors, lawyers, professors, accountants, business owners or even secretaries now its software engineers, scientists and CEOs of major companies. Occupational segregation of women in the workforce remains one of the most salient features of the U.S. Labor market and it is a major cause of the womens wage gap. Only by dealing with both issues can you deal with either. The Institute for Womens Policy Research reports women made substantial inroads into predominantly male occupations in the 0s and s. But progress completely stalled following the mid-s. No significant milestones have been made toward closing the wage gap since 2007. The American Association of University Women warns that if the pace of change remains what it was between 1960 and 2015, women wont reach pay equity with men until 2059. Worse, if yesteryears glacial progress further stalls going forward, womens pay equity with men will not be reached until 2152. Ye gods. So, enter Ivanka Trump. She is a senior adviser to and daughter of President Trump. She embraced the cause of pay equity early on in her fathers administration and took to the national stage on behalf of its support. She declared, Women deserve equal pay for equal work. Even the liberals cheered. But not Daddy. Trump is halting equal pay data collection that requires major corporations to confidentially report to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission information about employee compensation, by job category, sex, race and ethnicity. The political tactic is like President Clintons Dont ask. Dont tell maneuver. Or asking if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? The Trump version goes like this: If the government doesnt ask companies for data by job category, sex, race and ethnicity, and if companies dont disclose data to government that reveals a pattern and practice of occupational segregation and wage discrimination, will the government know whether companies practice occupational segregation and wage discrimination? The answer seems obvious but not to Ivanka. She demurred without protest to the administrations decision to stop collecting data. Said she: The proposed policy would not yield the intended results. Then silence. It was Ivankas brief but spectacular moment of abandoning working women and the pay equity they deserve.

Email her at email@example.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com l g d g o o g leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com Trump gets DACA rightEven in our divided politics, it should be a matter of consensus that the president of the United States cant write laws on his own. Thats what President Barack Obama did twice when he unilaterally granted amnesties to swaths of the illegal immigrant population. The courts blocked one of these measures, known as DAPA, and President Donald Trump has now begun the process of ending the other, DACA, on a delayed, rolling basis. In a country with a firmer commitment to its Constitution and the rule of law, thered be robust argument over how to deal with the DACA recipients so-called DREAMers who were brought here by their illegal-immigrant parents as children but no question that Congress is the appropriate body for considering the matter, not the executive branch. Instead, President Trump is getting roundly denounced by all his usual critics for inviting Congress to work its will. His decision is a relatively modest way to roll back what is clearly an extralegal act. The president goes out of his way to minimize disruption for current DACA recipients. The administration will stop accepting new applications for the program but will continue to consider twoyear renewals for recipients whose status is expiring between now and March 5. This gives Congress a six-month window for its own solution before anyones status changes. The proximate cause of the Trump decision was a threat by the attorney general of Texas and other states to bring a suit challenging the legality of DACA. Attention had to be paid, because Texas and other states successfully got the other Obama unilateral amnesty, DAPA, enjoined by the courts. In a Facebook post, Obama waves off the legal challenge. He says DACA is based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion. He maintained the exact same thing about DAPA, and that didnt save it in the courts, including the Supreme Court. True prosecutorial discretion involves a case-by-case determination by authorities. Obamas executive amnesties were sweeping new dispensations designed to apply to broad categories of illegal immigrants. They didnt involve simply deciding not to prioritize the deportation of the affected illegal immigrants, but the conferral of various positive benefits on them, most importantly work permits.This is clearly a new legal system for these immigrants, and in fact, President Obama once slipped and told an audience, I just took action to change the law. Prior to DACA, Obama repeatedly said that he didnt have the authority to implement his own amnesty absent congressional action before doing just that.Now, Trump is giving Congress another chance. It isnt hard to see the parameters of a deal: a codification of DACA, putting it on firm legal footing, in exchange for enforcement measures. Whatever Congress arrives at, it will have more legitimacy than the jerryrigged legislating of a president wielding a pen and a phone. President Trump has exercised his powers foolishly at times, but hes never exceeded them. What Obama calls, pejoratively, the White House shifting its responsibility for these young people to Congress is really just basic civics. Congress writes the laws, even when its not to Barack Obamas liking. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. e e m r a g rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

The storm wreaked havoc up the Florida coast, passing through much of the state and even flooding many areas on the east coast. Many roads throughout Naples were impassable from downed trees and debris. Some couldnt return to their homes due to flooding. No electricity. No internet. No cell service. And yet, there was a silver lining for Collier residents to glean: No stormrelated deaths were reported countywide, according to Dan Summers of Collier Countys Bureau of Emergency Services and Management. Gov. Rick Scott announced 12 deaths attributed to Hurricane Irma during the week. None were reported in Collier or Lee counties. Thats a miracle. Its an absolute miracle, Summers said, apparently in awe of the areas luck.

FPL made a statement saying they estimate power to be fully restored by Sept. 22. Miraculously, the city of Naples was largely spared, with the estimated 10to 15-foot storm surge not coming to fruition; the back end of Hurricane Irma weakened on its way up the coast, so Naples only saw 2-3 feet of storm surge on its streets, according to Mayor Bill Barnett. Expect to find damaged roof-top equipment air conditioning units, fences, pool cages there is widespread damage to trees and landscape some roads remained flooded due to the storm surge, Barnett said in a statement Monday. City Manager Bill Moss released a statement welcoming Naples residents back into the city on Tuesday, but at their own risk; power remained out in many sections of the city, as well as cable and internet service. Some 17,000 locals sought refuge during the storm in 28 shelters across the county, including public schools that will remain closed through the week and beyond. Local media reported massive flooding and loss of housing in Immokalee, with some who chose to stay remaining inside trailers that had roofs partially torn off during the storm. Many grocery stores and some local restaurants opened for business as early as Tuesday, as well as some gas stations that welcomed multiple mile-long lines. Local nonprofits began mobilizing efforts to help those in need. Meals of Hope could be found distributing meals out of its Naples headquarters on Tuesday. The Community Foundation of Collier County announced a fundraising effort dubbed the Collier Comes Together Disaster Relief Fund. Collier officials cautioned residents to be careful when returning to homes and roadways, with many emergency vehicles expected to populate Southwest Floridas roadways for the foreseeable future.

Community Blood Center has urgent need after IrmaNCH Community Blood Center had to suspend collection operations for four days as a result of Hurricane Irma. Now there is a need to replenish blood supplies with the help of local donors. Although NCH Community Blood Center is working in coordination with the National Blood Exchange to receive shipments of specific blood products from other parts of the country, the local public is being urged to take time out and donate. What NCH Community Blood Center needs: The highest priority is to collect platelet donations. Criteria to be a platelet donor this week: Males who have not had aspirin within the last 48 hours, and women who have NEVER been pregnant and who have not has aspirin within the last 48 hours. It takes about two hours to donate platelets. Platelet donations are done by appointment at the NCH Community Blood Centers Naples Branch, 311 Ninth St. N., Suite 201. If you meet the above criteria and want to donate platelets, call 624-4120 and choose option 3 to make a platelet donation appointment. Whole blood donations are also needed. NCH Community Blood Center is requesting whole blood donors give their gifts of life specifically on the air-conditioned bloodmobiles at the following emergency blood drives: Thursday, Sept. 14 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sunshine Plaza in Bonita Springs, 9170 Bonita Beach Road. Friday, Sept. 15 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at NCH Support Services Center: 2157 Pine Ridge Road, Naples. Saturday, Sept. 16 Noon to 5 p.m. at Coconut Point in front of cinema (subject to change due to storm cleanup). The need for blood never stops. Not even for a hurricane. It is imperative to have an ample supply before a storm and immediate public support from donors after the storm. While NCH Community Blood Center had adequate supplies both before and immediately following the hurricane, it now needs to see a continued response from willing donors. People must be age 16 with a parent present and weigh at least 110 pounds to donate blood. There is no upper age limit to donate. Donors should bring photo ID, should eat a meal prior to donating and be well hydrated with juice or water on donation day. For more information call 624-4120 or visit www.givebloodcbc.org. A message from CCPS about returning to schoolCollier County Public Schools issued this message on Wednesday, Sept. 13: We know many of you are facing challenges from Hurricane Irma, including power outages, intermittent cell phone service, gas shortages and even deciding when to head back home.

Facebook.com/Bradford.Square.Retirement BradfordSquareRetirement.com As repairs and cleanup begin, BBB offers cautionary tips BETTER BUSINESS BUREAUIn the wake of Hurricane Irma, consumers are evaluating the damage done and have started the cleanup process. Better Business Bureau receives hundreds of complaints every year concerning sub-par work performed by contractors, and encourages consumers to take the time to properly research contractors to avoid creating a bigger problem. Natural disasters can bring out the best in people, as strangers reach out to help others in need. Unfortunately, the aftermath of a crisis typically also brings out many types of scams and unlicensed contractors who take advantage of those who have been victimized. BBB serving West Florida warns residents who have been affected by Hurricane Irma to beware of out-of-town storm chasers and contractors soliciting business. Disaster victims should never feel pressured by an unknown contractor to make a decision, Karen Nalven, BBB president, says. Storm chasers may not have proper licensure for your area and may offer quick fixes or make big promises to which they wont deliver, she adds. BBB offers the following tips for hurricane Irma victims: Before you hire, check out the company/contractor at www.bbb. org. Its fast, easy and free. Also search the company/contractor online, adding the word Complaint, Reviews or Scam after the name for different search results. BBBs Disaster Recovery Repairing and Rebuilding Guide provides helpful resources to aid in clean-up and repair efforts. Find it at www.bbb.org/westflorida/hurrianes/disaster-recovery/. Contractors must be registered with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, unless work is limited to a specific area. To check licensing, call 850-487-1395, download the app named DBPR mobile or go online to www.myfloridalicense.com to check whether a contractor is registered. Contractors who limit their work to local areas might only be required to secure a license with their county in lieu of DBPR. Check with your local county contractors certification/building department if you are unsure if a contractor has secured proper licensing. Many municipalities require a solicitation permit if sales people go door-todoor. Verify that they need to have a permit by contacting your local municipality. BBB suggests consumers be proactive in selecting a contractor and not reactive to sales calls on the phone or door-to-door pitches. Always ask for identification and contact the company directly should you have any concerns. While most roofing contractors abide by the law, be careful allowing someone you do not know inspect your roof. An unethical contractor may actually create damage to get work. Understand Assignment of Benefits contracts. Beware of contractors who claim to be insurance claim specialists and who might ask you to sign an agreement to allow them to contact your insurance company and seek approval of repairs for you. Many unscrupulous businesses have tricked consumers into signing a work estimate without reading the fine print, which commits you to automatically contract with their business if your insurance claim is approved. Try to get at least three or four quotes from contractors, and insist that payments be made to the company, not an individual. Do not pay for the job in advance. Be wary of any contractor who demands full or half payment upfront. Resist high-pressure sales tactics such as the good deal youll get only if you hire the contractor on the spot. Get a written contract that specifies the price, the work to be done, the amount of liability insurance coverage maintained by the contractor, and a time frame. Require a copy of their current certificate of insurance. Pay by credit card, if possible; you might have additional protection if theres a problem. Check that the contractors vehicle has signs or markings on it with the business name, phone number and license plates for Florida. Mold assessors and remediators must hold an active license with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations. You can review the status by going to www. myfloridalicense.com or by calling 850487-1395. The license information also should tell you how long the contractor has been licensed to perform work. Make sure the business has extensive experience in cleaning up mold. Ask for references from the business and contact these references for more information. Also, ask family and friends if they have worked with a mold remediation expert in the past and had a favorable experience. Beware of price gouging for commodities or services; if theres a gross disparity between the prior price and the current charge, it is considered price gouging. If you think you are being priced gouged, report it to the Price Gouging Hotline established by the Florida Attorney Generals Office at 866-9-NO-SCAM. If you hire an uninsured and unlicensed contractor and a serious injury were to occur to the contractor, you, as the person who hired him, could potentially be liable for paying the workers compensation benefits. This could turn a simple $1,000 repair into a bill for tens of thousands more. In addition, a neighboring property, a passerby or other property that is negligently damaged by an unlicensed contractor can become a liability to the person that hired the contractor.

High blood pressure is a leading risk factor for heart attack and stroke and is also a significant public health burden, costing the U.S. about $110 billion in direct and indirect costs in 2015, according to American Heart Association estimates. AHA guidelines define blood pressure as normal at less than 120/80 and high blood pressure as 140/90 or above. While hypertension awareness, treatment and control have improved overall since the early 2000s, all three remain worse in young adults those aged 18-39, said senior study author Andrew Moran, M.D., an assistant professor at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. The study, based on 1999-2014 data taken from more than 41,000 people who participated in eight national health surveys, examined the prevalence and management of high blood pressure among adults. Among the researchers key findings: Only half of the 6.7 million young adults with high blood pressure in 2013-2014 received treatment and only 40 percent got their blood pressure under control. Among young men, rates of SEE HYPERTENSION, A17 Participants needed for two-year study of smart water bottle NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHCan a high-tech water bottle help reduce the recurrence of kidney stones? What about a financial incentive? Those are questions researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health will seek to answer as they begin recruiting participants for a two-year clinical trial at four sites across the country. Scientists will test whether using a smart water bottle that encourages people to drink more water, and therefore urinate, will reduce the recurrence of urinary stone disease, commonly referred to as kidney stones. The trial is supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, part of NIH. The randomized trial, known as the Prevention of Urinary Stones with Hydration study, or PUSH, will enroll 1,642 people, half in an intervention group and half in a control group. The studys primary aim is to determine whether a program of financial incentives, receiving advice from a health coach, and using a smart water bottle will result in reduced risk of kidney stone recurrence over a two-year period. The water bottle, called Hidrate Spark, monitors fluid consumption and connects to an app. Those in the intervention group will be asked to drink a specific quantity of fluids calculated based on each persons urine output. They will also be given financial incentives if they achieve their fluid targets. They will also meet with a health coach who will help identify barriers to drinking more liquids, and help solve them. Study participants in both groups will receive the water bottles to monitor how much they drink and will be asked to try to achieve a goal of drinking enough to expel 2.5 liters of urine per day about 10.5 cups. In the United States, the prevalence of urinary stones has nearly doubled in the past 15 years, affecting about 1 in 11 people. Little high-quality research exists related to how to prevent stones, and most therapies treat people with the condition only after they are in excruciating pain. Existing prevention guidelines agree on one important lifestyle change: drinking more water. However, among people with a history of kidney stones and who are routinely counseled to drink more water the average increase in 24-hour urine volume is very small. PUSH researchers hope to identify ways to change and sustain behaviors that increase fluid intake and reduce urinary stone recurrence. Urinary stones are painful and debilitating, and their treatment expensive. We hope that identifying the barriers to water intake, and helping people overcome those barriers individually will be successful, said Ziya Kirkali, MD, program director of urology clinical research and epidemiology in NIDDKs Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases. If successful, the study could change management of kidney stones, and could result in healthcare systems incorporating problem solving and prevention strategies, perhaps using incentives to modify behavior in people with urinary stone disease. PUSH participants must be 12 years of age or older, have had at least one symptomatic stone in the past three years, have a low urine amount (measured over 24 hours), own a smartphone, and meet other eligibility criteria. PUSH is being conducted by investigators with the Urinary Stone Disease Research Network. The Duke Clinical Research Institute is USDRNs Scientific Data Research Center. PUSH will enroll at four clinical sites: University of Pennsylv ania/Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center of Dallas University of Washington, Seattle Washington University in St. Louis Urinary stone disease remains an important medical, scientific, and public health problem, and it is an extraordinarily painful one for those it affects, said NIDDK Director Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers, M.D. With this trial, were leaning on technology to find a solution to preventing urinary stones that can fit into peoples lifestyles. The NIDDK, a component of the NIH, conducts and supports research on diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases; digestive diseases, nutrition and obesity; and kidney, urologic and hematologic diseases. Spanning the full spectrum of medicine and afflicting people of all ages and ethnic groups, these diseases encompass some of the most common, severe and disabling conditions affecting Americans.

Nearly three-quarters of young adults who had high blood pressure were obese compared with 57 percent of middle-aged adults and 42 percent of older adults, suggesting that young adults with high blood pressure are more than twice as likely to be obese. Researchers noted young women are more likely to have their blood pressure checked due to more frequent healthcare visits like gynecological exams or prenatal care. The prevalence of prehypertension (readings from 120-139/80-89) was significantly higher among young men (33.6 percent) than young women (12.8 percent). According to the AHA, people with pre-hypertension are likely to develop high blood pressure unless steps are taken to control it. Our study identified shortfalls in high blood pressure screening and management among young adults and especially young adult males, said lead study author Yiyi Zhang, Ph.D., associate research scientist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. The first step for young adults is to have their blood pressure measured, whether in a doctors office, pharmacy or other place in their community. Young adults with consistently high blood pressure need a link to clinical care to verify the diagnosis and receive regular monitoring and possibly treatment. This study emphasizes the need to focus on early hypertension prevention and management in young adults. It also highlights the importance of addressing policy issues related to healthcare access and utilization. Recognizing the need and importance of blood pressure control, in 2015 the AHA and the American Medical Association began collaborating to get more people appropriately treated to control. Target:BP is a recognition program that urges medical practices, hospitals and health service organizations to reach and sustain a blood pressure control rate of 70 percent or higher among the high blood pressure patients they serve.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESRide in safety BY DR. MARTY BECKER & KEITH TURNERUniversal Press SyndicateDo you secure your pets when theyre riding in the car? While most cats travel safely in carriers when they travel at all, the question typically draws an uneasy look and an uncomfortable response from even the most conscientious and well-meaning of dog lovers. The truth is that most dog lovers including those who wouldnt think of leaving home without first securing themselves and their children with a seat belt dont provide the same protection for their dogs. The results can be tragic. Unrestrained pets cause more than 30,000 accidents annually, according to the American Automobile Association, injuries and even fatalities that could in many cases have been avoided with the use of a restraint or carrier. Its beneficial to both people and pets to have animals properly restrained in a car either with a commercial restraint device or in a carrier, said Dr. Tony Johnson, emergency department director at VCA Indiana Veterinary Specialists in Indianapolis. I have seen several dramatic and heartbreaking cases where dogs jumped out of a vehicle and suffered severe injuries. Grant Biniaz of the pet health insurance provider VPI agrees. Injuries can be sustained during an accident, or even when slamming on the brakes, he said. We also see many cases where unrestrained dogs have been injured jumping out of an open window if they see something interesting like another dog or a squirrel outside of the car. But its not just about safety for pets. Restraining your dog while youre on the road protects people as well. Secured pets wont be the reason for a drivers distraction. In the case of an accident, a secured pet wont be flying loose in the vehicle, increasing the likelihood and severity of injuries to all. In a 30 mph accident, a 60-pound dog can cause an impact of more than 2,700 pounds, slamming into a car seat, windshield or other passengers, said Christina Selter, founder of Bark Buckle Up, an organization dedicated to teaching pet owners about the importance of securing their pets while traveling. And if the animal survives and gets loose, it can run into traffic or impede the progress of emergency crews arriving on the scene. There are many varieties of restraints, including harnesses that hook into the seatbelt systems, carriers and crates that keep pets protected and barriers to keep animals in the back, away from drivers. In fact, one auto manufacturer, Volvo, has made dog safety such a priority that the Swedish automaker has introduced its own line of pet barriers that fit into some of its more dog-friendly models. And several other automakers are reportedly following suit. No matter what type of restraint you choose, the key is to introduce it to your pet as early as possible, said VPIs Biniaz. It is very difficult to train an older dog to wear a restraint in a car, said Biniaz. Pet owners should acclimate their pets to restraints from a young age. The importance of pet car safety is perhaps best summed up by Sgt. Rick Martinez of the Anaheim, Calif., police department, who has seen firsthand the tragic consequences of unrestrained pets in vehicles. We all want to spoil our pets, said Martinez. The best thing you can do for your dog is to buckle them up in your car. In case of an accident, it will save their life and greatly enhance the abilities of first responders to take car of other occupants.

THE DIVA DIARIESGirl, you know its true we all had shoulder pads, tooDear Diva, the email from a reader began, my 12-year-old daughter has s dress-up day at school coming up and were looking for costume ideas. Any suggestions? I calmly gulped my pinot grigio before typing my reply, when I suddenly realized that s dress-up day is the equivalent of s dress-up day when I was in middle school. It was a sobering moment. Suddenly, I was the oldie. How can the generation that gave us Molly Ringwald and Michael J. Fox be old? But to seventh-graders everywhere, were not a generation were a costume. That said, the s generation makes for a pretty good costume, and Id hate for my bitterness at being inadvertently called old to rain on anyones s dress-up day. So I responded with the following: Your choices for your daughters dress-up day, dear reader, are plentiful. When I was a tween and we had s dress-up day at school, my mom had to search desperately all over town to find me a poodle skirt and saddle shoes. But trying to emulate the s in 2017 is a no brainer, dude. If your kid wants to go with the early s, all she needs is a pair of high-waisted mom jeans and a tuckedin polo shirt. No need to go thrift-store shopping this ensemble is currently part of the 2017 fall fashion line at The Gap. However, if your daughter is looking at the mid s, it might take some DIY work on your part. Youll need some crinoline for a skirt, some lace for gloves, some rubber for bunches of bracelets, and lots (and lots) of eyeliner. I remember 1985 very well and Madonna and Cyndi Lauper made it easy for us. How hard is it to rip up a pair of fishnet stockings and wear them like a boss? The late s were a little more challenging, as they melded with the early s grunge era. You could get away with wearing a babydoll dress and Doc Martens, or you could go with parachute pants and Converse sneakers its a toss up. Whether it was the beginning of the decade or the end, the s were a smorgasbord of fashion, film and music I just never realized that my teen years would become a costume. The difference between the s and the s is that when I had dressup day, my mom painstakingly sewed a skirt for me and handembroidered a poodle on it, and when we couldnt find saddle shoes, she dug out a pair of dusty loafers from the back of her closet and inserted a penny onto the top of each one. I remember telling her, But, MOM, I need SADDLE shoes. Honey, these are even better, she told me, Theyre penny loafers theyre what we all wore. So, I wore them and I was the only kid in penny loafers. I had to explain them to everyone; I remember telling my mom how awkward it was to explain my costume. She told me that the kids at my school were dumb. Now we have an entire generation of tweens who will have to explain why the jeans from their s costumes are stonewashed. Well, kids, some things arent easily explained you just have to live through it and if you can make it through the s, you can make it through anything. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Headlines have prophesized everything from a total government shutdown to a market crash to an economic depression if the debt ceiling is not raised by the end of September. So what is the debt ceiling and why is it so important today? The federal debt ceiling was created by Congress in 1917 when it passed the Second Liberty Bond Act. Before that date, lawmakers simply authorized the treasury to take on debt to fund a particular expenditure. However, with the start of World War I, it became too complicated to fund each war expenditure by itself, so Congress authorized the treasury to issue bonds or other debt instruments to fund the governments expenses as long as the total debt was under a certain number. This number was the first debt ceiling. Note that the debt ceiling has nothing to do with spending tax dollars or allocating funds to particular projects. Instead, the debt ceiling is analogous to the spending limit on your credit card. MasterCard doesnt care what you use the card for, as long as you stay under your pre-approved line of credit. So what is the governments debt ceiling? In 1940, at the onset of World War II, the debt ceiling stood at about $49 billion. It took about 40 years for that amount to surpass the $1 trillion mark. Only five years later, in 1985, that number doubled to $2 trillion. Today, the debt ceiling stands at about $20 trillion. If Congress did not authorize an increase to the debt ceiling, it would be analogous to you being at your credit limit on your Visa Card and having automatic payments on your cable bill, Netflix subscription and insurance premium coming up the next day.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Betting Against Stocks ProfitablyThe way to make money in stocks is to buy low and sell high, right? Well, yes, but many dont realize you can also make money in stocks by reversing that buying high and then selling low. Its called shorting. Heres how it works: Imagine GroverCleveland.com (ticker: GROVY) has gone public. While others may be excited about the company, you have little faith in it and expect the stock to sink. You go to your brokerage and put in an order to short GROVY. The brokerage will borrow shares from a GROVY shareholders account and sell them for you. Later, if the share price does drop, youll cover your short, which involves buying shares on the market (at a lower price) to replace the ones you borrowed. If you shorted GROVY at $90 and covered when it fell to $70, you made $20 per share (less commissions). This process may seem crazy, but its legal and commonly done. You can make money with shorting in any kind of market. If the market plunges, your shorts will likely fall, boosting your portfolios performance. Even in a strong market, poorly performing companies will often fall in value, rewarding those who bet against them. Theres a big downside to shorting, though. If the stock price rises and then you sell, youll lose money. It gets worse: With shorted stocks, you can gain only up to 100 percent, since a stock price cant fall lower than zero. But if your shorted stock keeps rising, your downside is theoretically unlimited. Since you can actually lose more than 100 percent of your money, you need to keep a very close eye on your shorts. Shorting stocks also involves working against the overall long-term upward trend of the market. Companies youre sure are overvalued can just remain overvalued or keep rising. And if you short a company, youll have its management working against you to make the company succeed. Shorting can be effective, but its only for seasoned investors. Many experienced investors do very well without it. Slippery SlopeA guy kept calling me about investing in a ski resort in upstate New York. He said, How could you lose? You are investing in a mountain. I lost the entire investment and learned not to listen to anyone pushing stocks on the phone or via flyers in the mail. Don K., Edinboro, Penn sylv aniaThe Fool Responds: You got coldcalled, which is rarely a great way to find outstanding investments. Any investments that are so terrific wouldnt need salespeople to push them those in the know would be snapping up all available shares. And, of course, you werent investing in a mountain. You were investing in a business. It probably wasnt a publicly traded one, with shares of common stock trading on the open market and an obligation to regularly file audited financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission that are publicly available. Instead, it might have been a limited partnership or some other structure, which can be complicated, tax-wise and otherwise. You probably didnt get a chance to look at its books and see how profitable it was (if it was indeed profitable) and how quickly its revenue and earnings were growing (not to mention its debt load and accounts receivable). Before investing in any company, public or private, you need to understand the companys strengths and weaknesses, its risks and opportunities. You need to be reasonably confident the potential benefits outweigh the risks. An Alphabet for All AgesThere is no company quite like Googles parent company, Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG). The company takes in nearly $100 billion of revenue annually, and its still growing fast. In its latest quarter, Alphabet increased revenue by 21 percent year over year. Almost all that comes from advertising. Alphabet was estimated to have captured 43 percent of the $181 billion online advertising market in 2016. Its Google is the worlds largest search provider and most popular website, and its Android mobile operating system enjoys greater market share than Apples iOS. Alphabet encompasses YouTube, Verily Life Sciences, Nest thermostats, solar-powered drones and more. Investors in Alphabet get a dominant online advertising business coupled with the chance that one of the companys moonshots will become the next big thing. The most prominent is Waymo, Alphabets self-driving car subsidiary. Alphabet is aiming to be the driving force behind this revolutionary technology. Alphabets coffers have ballooned to contain more than $94 billion in cash and investments which can be used to buy more companies or pay a dividend, among other options. Alphabet isnt without risk, but its strong and likely to reward long-term investors. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Alphabet.) Im the product of a 2010 merger of two companies, both of which trace their roots to the early 1900s, when one was making pretzels and the other selling peanuts. I introduced peanut butter sand wich crackers in 1913. Today, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Im a snack giant, with brands such as Kettle Brand, KETTLE Chips, Cape Cod, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, Pop Secret, Emerald, Late July, Krunchers! Toms, Archway, Jays, Stella Doro, Eatsmart Snacks, O-Ke-Doke, Metcalfes skinny and my own names. My market value recently topped $3.5 billion, and I employ more than 6,500 people. Who am I? (Answer: Snyders-Lance) Dont Freak OutQHow freaked out should I be when the market crashes, say, 274 points, as it did recently? C.D., Santa Rosa, CaliforniaADont freak out. Stocks and the overall market move up and down every day the market is open, with some of those moves being sizable. Its smart to think in percentages instead of points, though a concept that the financial media doesnt seem to grasp. On Aug. 17, for example, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped a seemingly massive 274 points the second-largest single-day decline in 2017. The Dow began that day at 22,025, though, and ended not that far away, at 21,751. Those 274 points represented a decline of only 1.24 percent. There have been and will be many moves of much more than 1.24 percent in the market. In 1987, for example, the Dow plunged 157 points, but at the time, that represented a fall of 8 percent. A 2008 drop of 778 points was a 7 percent decline. Meanwhile, a seemingly small shrinkage of 38 points in 1929 was a 13 percent drop, followed the next day by a 12 percent fall. Despite its volatility, the stock markets long-term trend has always been up. Only keep money you wont need for five (or even 10) years in stocks and when the market plunges, grab your shopping cart. ***QAre there any bills larger than the $100 bill? F.W., Columbia, MissouriAThere used to be. The Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve System discontinued $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 notes in 1969, due to their not being used much. (Indeed, they were last printed in 1945.) Want more information about stocks?

A22 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPittsburgh and Cleveland. And next year starting in May, the German discount airline Eurowings will start nonstop flights from RSW to Munich and Cologne/Bonn. A little more than 30 miles north at PGD, Allegiant Air will begin nonstop service to Rochester, Newburgh, Milwaukee, Flint and St. Cloud, on new Airbus A320s. (Allegiant) is always looking for cities where demand to get to a vacation destination like the Gulf Coast is underserved, said spokesperson Hilarie Grey. These latest additions are a continuation of what weve seen in terms of demand for Southwest Florida, and we believe these routes will end up supporting even more service down he road. She adds that passengers end up staying in hotels not just in Charlotte County, but also Sarasota, Fort Myers and Naples. Gianluca Corso, owner of Cosmos Caf & Pizzeria in Naples, expects the new routes from PGD and RSW will boost business. Itll be fantastic, he said. (We have) a lot of Michigan customers, tons of New York customers in Naples. A lot of people from New York own a second home and I bet they will use it more and more. I think it will be very good for the city. Discount airlines advertise prices that are about half to 30 percent of comparable destinations on major airlines. In all, savings may add up to less than that because passengers often pay extra fees for carryon and checked luggage as well as snacks and drinks. Fees vary depending on the flight. Allegiant advertises fares as low as $49 to $69 one way on the new flights out of PGD. One personal carry-on item is free, according to the companys website. Additional carry-on or checked bags range from about $15 to $50, depending on the flight. With low fares and nonstop flights, they get a lot of people to take vacations, said PGD executive director James Parish. Our model with a low-cost airport and low-cost airline has just allowed them (Allegiant) to grow. Allegiant flew 1,070 flights in and out of PGD in 2012; in 2016 the number was 7,538. One of the fastest-growing small airports in the country, PGD is about 10 minutes from downtown Punta Gorda, 30 minutes from Fort Myers and an hour from Naples. With new cities added to schedules this year, PGD will offer service to 39 destinations. More than 1.2 million passengers last year traveled through the airport. Allegiant is just blowing up and its really exciting for us because these are all areas we are really interested in and we get a lot of visitors from, said Francesca Donlan, director of communications of the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. Allegiant also announced in August that it is planning Sunseeker Resorts, a hotel and condo development on more than 20 acres of waterfront property in Charlotte County, including restaurants, bars, retail shops and a marina. The company estimates that the resort will spark an increase of 300,000 visitors per year. Preliminary plans call for construction to start later next year. Im really bullish on Punta Gorda Airport having a huge effect on that region, said Christopher Westley, Ph.D., director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University. It fits perfectly well into Allegiants business model in that it caters to slightly off-thegrid airports that probably have lower costs of operating compared to the bigger airports, which allows them to keep their costs down. At PGD and RSW, airlines increase in flight destinations is keeping pace with the regions population and business growth, Mr. Westley said. You just have basic increased demand because the population has been steadily growing, so youd expect this to happen on its own, he added. But also you have economic activity that wasnt occurring before, which contributes to it. More than 8.6 million passengers came through RSW in 2016. Frontier Airlines is leading growth in destinations this year with nine new cities. The company promotes bundled flight options starting at $59 each way including a carry-on bag and a checked bag. Spirit Airlines is also adding two destinations and Southwest Airlines, one. With new cities being added, RSW offers 48 nonstop destinations through 16 air carriers. About 80 percent of users are leisure travelers, and 20 percent business travelers, said spokesperson Victoria Moreland. In all measures, capacity is up, she said. That means more seats available and new markets. And that demand, of course, is driven by the desire for people to come down to our area. For airlines such as Frontier, she said, RSW is a perfect fit. People want to come here, the airlines want to service the market, we make sure they have a beautiful facility to come in to. We keep their costs low So it makes sense for them economically to be here in a number of ways. AIRFrom page 20 New flights at RSWSpirit Airlines: >> On Nov. 9, nonstop daily service begins to Hartfords Bradley International Airport (BDL) and Pittsburgh (PIT). Frontier Airlines: >> On Oct. 5, nonstop weekly service begins to Colorado Springs (COS), and daily service to Islip on Long Island (ISP), and Philadelphia (PHL).

Seasonal service will also begin Nov. 17 to St. Cloud Regional Airport (STC) in Minnesota. COURTESY PHOTOS what doesnt once the government limit is reached? Some argue that the Executive Branch can pick and choose which programs get funded and which do not. Others argue that no one can receive government money at that point, including U.S. government bondholders who are owed interest. This last point has convinced many analysts that the debt ceiling has outlived its usefulness and now causes more problems than it solves. They worry that for political reasons Congress might fail to increase the limit, leading to a loss of confidence in the bond markets. Interest rates would spike as investors demanded a higher rate of return to hold U.S. bonds, which could lead to a depression. Will Congress phase out the debt ceiling? After all, if it wanted to control debt it could simply pass a budget with less spending. But politically, conservatives would be hard pressed to abolish it for fear of being seen as not fiscally conservative. And liberals like it, as they are often able to trade a higher debt ceiling for some spending package that favors their constituents. So for now, as long as Congress continues to fuel ever-expanding budget deficits, we will constantly be pressed against rising debt ceilings as well. MONEYFrom page 20

The enlarged width allowed Ronto to increase the glass slider panels opening to the terrace from four to six, a step that provides additional natural light and enhanced courtyard views. An additional foot of depth was included in the terrace design. The additional width and depth resulted in the 20% overall increase in the terrace space. A wall of cabinetry was added to the kitchen design and is now standard in Biltmore residences. The re-design also increased the size of the owners bedroom.

To enhance the Dovers space sequences, Ronto pushed the corner units great room and dining area out to increase the depth by four feet and the width by two feet. The increases allowed Ronto to add a third panel of glass to the great room window and a fourth panel to the slider opening to the balcony.

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com 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. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

Vacationing families head home for children to start the school year, and its not cold enough up North for snowbirds to begin their migration. Many Florida communities have solved the problem by creating exciting reasons for tourists as well as locals to come out fall festivals and events. The weather is a little cooler but sunny, which makes fall a good time to hold outdoor events in Florida, and roads arent as jammed.

Cohen. Orange Grove Press. 276 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99; ebook, $4.99.This is Nancy J. Cohens 14th Bad Hair Day mystery, and given its vigor, humor and inventiveness, the series has a lot of life left in it. Protagonist Marla Vail runs her own hair salon. However, this occupation has never kept her from getting involved in dangerous mysteries. Even before her marriage to Dalton, a local homicide detective, his cases had sort of become hers, and vice versa. Once again, they work together and apart to solve a complex series of murders. When Dalton comes home with the news that their friends Tally and Ken are missing, the Vails life is rocked by the possible changes in their lives. Until they find out what happened, someone will have to take care of Luke, the missing couples son. And since Talley made Marla the infants guardian, the responsibility falls to her. Soon enough, Ken turns up dead in the remains of a suspicious car accident and Talley, seriously injured, is in a deep coma. Upon investigation, what first looked like it could have been an accident starts to look more like murder. Ken, head of a local insurance company, had somehow become involved in a case pursued by a state agency that investigates insurance fraud. Was Ken being investigated, or was he assisting in an investigation? If the latter, was he killed because of what he knew? Or was the wreck set up with Tally as the intended victim? Marlas musings lead her to realize that her relationship with Tally, long an intimate friend, had waned. What was going on in Tallys life that she hadnt shared with Marla? She discovers that Tally had joined a somewhat peculiar womens club, some of whose members had been lured into a Russian criminal enterprise. This is the most exotic, but not the most important discovery that Marla makes. How do these discoveries connect with someone wanting Tally dead? Did Tally have a disgruntled employee working in her dress shop? While Marla pursues the Tally side of their investigation, Dalton presses the Ken dimension, sometimes with Marlas assistance. Would one of Kens employees want to get rid of him? Had he or his company given a client a motive for murder? Why has a member of his staff been murdered? Why was someone working for the state anti-fraud agency murdered? Dear reader, you will find out and there will be surprises. But thats not all. You will get a detailed, inside view of how a hair salon operates, how an insurance company operates and how local law enforcement agencies work together or not. Addicted Bad Hair Day mystery readers will see Marla in a new light the light of possible motherhood as she cares for baby Luke and softens a bit toward Daltons desire that they have their own children. Daltons teenage daughter Brianna is a delightfully welldrawn character, her curiosity and intelligence helpful in brainstorming motives and possibilities. Maybe shed like a sibling. She sure does a good job helping with Luke. To read the mysteries in this series is to soak up South Florida culture, both its attractions and its foibles. The town where Marla and Dalton have their home is, I would guess, pretty much like the town in which the author lives. The visits readers take to places in Boca Raton, to the Coral Springs branch of Toojays and other locations enhance the sense of place that the author handles so well. About the authorNancy Cohen is accomplished in her genre and craft. Her mastery of the cozy mystery category guarantees a good time, an inspiring adventure, a flock of welldefined characters, intricate plotting, plenty of suspense and many touches of delightful humor. Hair Brained concludes with promises of things to come things for which Tally will be fully conscious. Titles in the Bad Hair Day series have made the IMBA bestseller list, been selected by Suspense Magazine as Best Cozy Mystery and won third place in the Arizona Literary Awards. Ms. Cohen has also written the instructional guide, Writing the Cozy Mystery. Her imaginative romances, including the Drift Lords series, have proven popular with fans as well. Her first book in this genre won the HOLT Medallion Award. When not busy writing, she enjoys fine dining, cruising, visiting Disney World and shopping. She resides in Plantation.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYing to Florida for fall festivals can be a good deal for visitors, because accommodations often are cheaper and package deals are available. The following is a sample of the variety of events. Use them for inspiration. But if you have a particular interest whether its a genre of music or a type of food or a fondness for a particular hobby or if you will already be traveling to another section of the state for some reason, look around. Something will be going on.MUSIC FESTIVALSIsland Hopper Songwriter Fest Featuring: Acoustic, singer-songwriter, country When: Sept. 22-Oct. 1 Where: Multiple venues at Captiva Island, downtown Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach Cost: Majority of performances are free; ticketed performances $5-$20 Info: www.islandhopperfest.com With e85 songwriting acts performing 155 shows at 24 venues in three Lee County communities over 10 days, the fourth annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest is the best music festival your money cant buy. Crazy as it sounds for a music festival that brings in the songwriting talent behind the hits of nationally known artists such as the Dixie Chicks, Celine Dion, George Strait, Brad Paisley, Eddie Rabbitt, Rascal Flatts and Ariana Grande, nearly the entire festival is free. Even the handful of events that do require tickets, such as concerts by headline performers Lindsay Ell, Brooke Eden and RaeLynn, are modestly priced. How can this be? Its a tremendous collaboration that keeps the Island Hopper bursting with song and growing, said Francesca Donlan, director of communications for The Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. I dont think there are many festivals out there where you can see this many performances for free. Because the free performances take place at venues that typically feature happy hour musicians, the atmosphere of the event is quite intimate. It also means you should scope out the schedule online to plot your strategy for finding a chair if there is a popular performer youd like to see. Or, you can take a Zen approach and walk among the venues listening for something from the musical smorgasbord to catch your ear and then see if you can find a seat. Sometimes you can make new friends this way. At the first Island Hopper, a visitor on holiday from Germany had booked a stay at Fort Myers Beach because hotel prices were low in September. She had no idea a big event was scheduled. When she went out to find a place for dinner, she was stunned to see so many people but found a seat by asking if she could sit in an empty chair at the table of a local person who happened to be this reporter. My point of view regarding our great trip to Florida / Fort Myers was very amazing, especially the American people, their warm and honest welcome, the enjoyable atmosphere, Marija Gadza wrote by email about her memories of stumbling upon the Island Hopper. I was quite impressed about the good countrystyle music. You Americans really know how to make quality entertainment.Suwannee Hulaween Featuring: Nationally known contemporary, indie rock, bluegrass and jam bands When: Oct. 27-29 Where: Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, 3076 95th Drive, Live Oak Cost: $259-$295 Info: www.suwanneehulaween.com Part jam-band rock festival, part otherworldly performance art, part campout at one of the most renowned music venues in the state, Suwannee Hulaween will definitely be a happening. Headliners include The String Cheese Incident, Ween, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Disco Biscuits, Here Come the Mummies, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Magic City Hippies, Space Jesus and about 50 other bands. Although this is a big event, Spirit of the Suwannee is an 800-acre forested park, so youll be able to spread out to camp.Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival Featuring: Acoustic, singer-songwriter, country When: Nov. 9-19 Where: Pensacola-area venues in both Florida and Alabama Cost: Majority of performances are free Info: www.frankbrownsongwriters. com This music festival brings in more than 200 Grammy-winning and up-and-coming songwriters to put on several hundred performances over the course of 11 days. OFF Weekend Music & Arts Festival Featuring: Nationally known contemporary, indie rock and rap music acts When: Dec. 9-10 Where: Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, 4020 Virginia Beach Drive, Miami Cost: $75-$235 Info: www.offweekend.com If there wasnt already enough culture in the air in Miami the second weekend of December with the Art Basel exhibition (youll read more about that festival later), a new festival showcasing contemporary, indie rock and rap music will add to the vibe. OFF Weekend & Arts Festival advertises itself as a multi-genre music festival taking place during Basel week, and its inaugural outing will feature as headliners the Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, legendary rappers the Wu-Tang Clan and indie rockers TV on the Radio, among others. More acts and details will be announced in the coming months, but early bird tickets are already on sale. The festival takes place at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, which takes up much of the 863-acre island in Biscayne Bay and historically was the site of Miamis segregated beach for black residents. Other music festivals at this park have offered camping, so watch the festivals website to see if this amenity will be offered. ART FESTIVALSArt Basel Miami Beach Featuring: Museum-quality international modern and contemporary art When: Dec. 7-10 Where: Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach Cost: $60 per day or $130 for four days Info: www.artbasel.com/miami-beach Miami hosts the only Western Hemisphere edition of Art Basel, an international exhibition that started in Basel, Switzerland, to showcase modern and contemporary works of art. Now in its 16th year, the Miami exhibition dwarfs the original, with over 200 galleries exhibiting artworks by 4,000 established and emerging artists, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, film, video and digital art. Centered at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the festival extends out to a network of events at venues including Miamis Art Deco hotels. The public purchase general admission, but this is one event where a VIP ticket has real meaning. VIP tickets and events are offered by invitation only to known art patrons. 31st annual American Sand Sculpting Championship Featuring: Live art demonstrations, beach festival, vendors, live music When: Nov. 17-26 Where: Wyndham Garden Hotel, 6890 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach Cost: $7 ages 5 and up Info: www.fmbsandsculpting.com If you ever built castles on the beach as a kid, you know how tough it can be for sculptures made of sand to hang together. Just imagine what it would have been like trying to build a sand castle that was taller than you. Actually, you dont have to imagine. You can see it for yourself as master sand sculptors from around the world create wondrous but temporary artworks from mere sand at the 31st annual American Sand Sculpting Championship. The event is the largest sand sculpting competition in the country. Beyond watching the artists at work, the festival features plenty of other things to do, including live music, the Quick Sand speed sculpting shows, hands-on lessons, amateur competitions, childrens activity area and food. This year, the vendor village will be larger, said Jacki Liszak, president of the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce. Well be having some of the favorite sculptors back and some new ones, Ms. Liszak said. We do a Christmas card photo station thats pretty cute, where they put your name into the sand and take your photo so you can use those as Christmas cards. The amateurs competitions are fun because sometimes the kids get in there and do stuff. If you attend the event, a helpful tip is to arrive from the south and park for free at the event field by the boat launch ramp at Lovers Key State Park (8700 Estero Blvd.) and hop the free shuttle buses to the event.The Siesta Key Crystal Classic International Sand Sculpting Festival Featuring: Live art demonstrations, beach festival, vendors, live music When: Nov. 10-13 Where: Siesta Beach, 948 Beach Road, Siesta Key Cost: $10 Info: www.siestakeycrystalclassic. com Started in 2010, sand sculptors create masterpieces in a maximum of only 24 hours spread out over the four days of the event. Since parking is quite limited on Siesta Key, see the website for instructions about parking on the mainland and taking public transit out to the island.

In Naples, the festival celebrates the beginning of the season for one of our uniquely Floridian foods: the stone crab. The six-month season opens midOctober. Given it takes a few days to set traps and harvest the delectable fresh crab claws, it makes sense that the Old Naples Waterfront Association throws the festival on the last weekend of October. After the ceremonial cracking of the first stone crab claws by local leaders, the festivities at the waterfront run all weekend with live music, craft vendors, charity row booths, drink specials and, of course, lots of stone crab and other local seafood. 54th Annual Florida Seafood Festival Featuring: Oyster shucking and eating contests, country music, Christian music When: Nov. 3-6 Where: Battery Park, 1 Bay Ave., Apalachicola Cost: $5 ages 12 and up Info: www.floridaseafoodfestival.com Given it is the oldest such festival in AUTUMNFrom page 1 THE BEACHES OF FORT MYERS & SANIBEL Aaron Barker, who wrote No. 1 songs Love Without End, Amen and Easy Come, Easy Go for George Strait, returns to the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest taking place in Lee County Sept. 22-Oct. 1.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5the state, it seems understandable that Apalachicola calls its event the Florida Seafood Festival. But given that when the word oysters appear on a restaurant menu in many parts of this country, the requisite question to the server isnt, Are they fresh? but is, Are they Apalachicolas? the event arguably could be called Floridas Seafood Festival given how synonymous the panhandle towns name has become with the tasty mollusks. Incorporated in 1827, the historic town of just over 2,000 people is worth the drive to visit even on an ordinary day. One resident, who migrated up from the Keys to open a business, described Apalachicola as having the vibe Key West used to have before it became inundated with tourists. Highlights of the festival include oyster-shucking and oyster-eating contests (although speed eating your way through a plate of raw Apalachicolas seems such a waste), blessing of the fleet, blue crab races, carnival midway and live music as well as interactive educational displays about Apalachicola Bays unique ecosystem that makes for such tasty wild oysters and the work it takes for oystermen to harvest them by hand with long-handled tongs.11th annual Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival Featuring: Gourmet food, fine dining, wine, celebrity chefs When: Dec. 14-17 Where: Multiple venues around Palm Beach Cost: $85-$185 per meal Info: www.pbfoodwinefest.com If youre looking for a sophisticated food festival for a grown-up audience, this is your event.

CULTURAL FESTIVALSEl Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Featuring: Live music, traditional foods, traditional cultural celebration When: Nov. 2 Where: Espanola Way pedestrian street, Miami Beach Cost: Free Info: www.facebook.com/OnEspanolaWay Every group who comes to the cultural melting pot that is the United States brings traditions that interest neighbors. Given that the Day of the Dead falls close to Halloween and bears some similarity in that the holiday is concerned with those who have passed the veil to the great beyond, traditions from the Mexican holiday have begun to influence customs north of the border, with stylized black-on-white painted skull faces called Catrinas showing up alongside witches and black cats in Halloween decoration stores. But there is more to Day of the Dead traditions than Catrinas, and the holiday is intended more as a celebration of departed loved ones than a night of fright. The Oh! Mexico restaurant and the new Espanola Way Association are bringing El Dia de los Muertos to the pedestrian-only street that was an artist quarter dating back to the 1920s. Because there are way too many Halloween parties in Miami, we wanted a way to differentiate ours, said Scott Robins, president of the Espanola Way Association. Miami embraces unique events, so we will be the maker of Day of the Dead in Miami. The event will feature live bands, a station for visitors to have their faces painted in the Catrina style, foods traditional to the holiday and traditional marigold-covered altars. The cultural holiday exchange goes both ways. The street will offer trick-ortreating as part of the celebration.Cape Coral Oktoberfest Featuring: Authentic food and beer, music, dance, crafts and carnival midway When: Oct. 20-22 and Oct. 27-29 Where: German-American Social Club of Cape Coral, 2101 SW Pine Island Road, Cape Coral Cost: $6 ages 12 and up Info: www.capecoraloktoberfest.com Have you always wanted to go to Oktoberfest in Munich but you could never afford the airfare? Then try the Oktoberfest at the German-American Social Club of Cape Coral. Once you step into the festival big top, you wont know youre in Florida anymore. They roll out the barrel to the biergarten by the semi-trailer full. Purchasing one of the clubs refillable plastic souvenir bier steins will net you the most beer for your buck (but designate your driver first). To go with that beer, you can find anything from a quick bite of bratwurst, potato pancake or schweinshaxen (roast pork knuckle) so you can keep on polka dancing, or you can sit down to a full dinner of schnitzel or sauerbraten served up the right way with dumplings and red cabbage. Perhaps youll want to try a German wine with the full dinner. With three stages and two dance floors, the music never stops at Oktoberfest. While the club brings over several bands from Germany every year, their own house band Hafenkapelle, complete with long alphorns, can certainly hold its own alongside any band from the Old World. Before you go, Google the words to Ein Prosit (A Toast), a singalong song youll be hearing at least once an hour at Oktoberfest. If you cant pronounce the rest of the words, just hoist your stein aloft and chant the ending before the toast, Zicke, zacke, zicke, zacke, hoi, hoi, hoi!Oktoberfest Tampa Featuring: Authentic food and beer, music, dance, game competitions, dog friendly When: Oct. 13-15 Where: Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 600 N.

Theres plenty of bawdy shows at Fantasy Fest, but theres also plenty of opportunity to show off and be the show as well since creative, skimpy costumes not only are tolerated but encouraged. The homemade bikini contest probably explains it all if you had any doubts left in your mind. Much of Fantasy Fest should be considered rated NC-17. HISTORICAL FESTIVALS12th annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival Featuring: Street festival, historical reenactors, musical performances When: Oct. 6-8 (Columbus Day weekend) Where: Times Square and Old San Carlos Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach Cost: $5 suggested donation for ages 12 and older Info: www.fmbpiratefest.com Arrrrrrr mateys, time to dust off yer muskets, canons, tri-corner hats, bloomers and corsets the pirates are fixin to make land at Fort Myers Beach again.

C6 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwho opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. The Vietnam War was a decade of agony that took the lives of more than 58,000 Americans, Mr. Burns said. Not since the Civil War have we as a country been so torn apart. There wasnt an American alive then who wasnt affected in some way from those who fought and sacrificed in the war, to families of service members and POWs, to those who protested the war in open conflict with their government and fellow citizens. More than 40 years after it ended, we cant forget Vietnam, and we are still arguing about why it went wrong, who was to blame and whether it was all worth it. Ten years in the making, the series brings the war and the chaotic epoch it encompassed viscerally to life. Written by Geoffrey C. Ward and produced by Sarah Botstein with Ms. Novick and Mr. Burns, it includes rarely seen, digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies and revelatory audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. The Vietnam War features new, original music written and recorded by Academy Award-winning composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as new music arranged and performed by Grammy Award-winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble. Additional music in the film was composed by David Cieri and Doug Wamble. The series also features more than 120 popular songs that define the era, including tracks from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Ben E. King, Phil Ochs, Donovan, Johnny Cash, Barry McGuire, Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Otis Redding, Santana, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, The Temptations, Pete Seeger and Booker T. and the M.G.s. We are all searching for some meaning in this terrible tragedy, Ms. Novick said. In examining the war from the bottom up, the top down and from all sides we discovered profound, universal human truths, as well as uncanny resonances with recent events. The series rounds out a trilogy of Florentine Films exploration of American wars that began with Mr. Burnss landmark series, The Civil War in 1990 and was followed in 2007 by The War, Mr. Burnss and Ms. Novicks seven-part series about World War II. Ever since The Civil War, Ken and Lynn have been behind some of the most important documentary films ever shown on television, films that have in fact made television history and created national conversations around who we are as Americans, said Beth Hoppe of PBS. The Vietnam War stands out as an unmatched documentary achievement about one of the most transformative periods in modern American history Our goal is to reach as many people as possible to spark a national discussion about the issues raised in the series, in a way that only public television can. Viewers are encouraged to join the conversation at #VietnamWarPBS. Starting Sept. 19 The Vietnam War will be available for digital download and on Blu-ray and DVD at www.shopPBS.org. Extras include a 45-minute preview program, deleted scenes and two special segments on the contemporary lives of two of the programs participants, and deleted scenes.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C7There are probably far fewer people who start with the Volkswagen Golf on their shopping list than those who go home with one. This isnt a magical VW like Herbie from the movies, or the ultra-hot GTI sport model. So why is it compelling? Without the diesel motor in the lineup anymore, the Golf is adding focus to fill a niche better than most others out there. Its distinctive without being outlandish. Its not a sports car nor is it sluggish. Its affordable without being cheap. While it may appear like the description of a good middleman, theres more to this cars story. The Golfs styling is unique. The compact hatchback field has been heating up in the U.S. recently with new additions like the Chevrolet Cruze, significantly redesigned cars like the Hyundai Elantra GT and returning old favorites like the Honda Civic. But these vehicles have a sloping rear end where the Golfs posterior is almost upright proudly declaring its a hatchback. Also, theres something really nifty about how the rear VW emblem automatically lifts up every time reverse is engaged to reveal the standard backup camera. That rear door is the key to its appeal. We traditionally like sedans in the U.S., and so owning a hatchback like the Golf is an instant way to stand out in the compact and midsize car crowds. Plus, any sedan owner who has ever tried to bring large items home anything from 200-count toilet paper to an electric generator instantly wishes for the versatility of the wide rear cargo opening. But more than just carrying more stuff, the Golfs interior has appeal because Volkswagen seems to understand how to make it feel more upscale. Soft materials, good design and crisp dials make the sensation from the drivers seat a more premium experience than a Ford Focus or the Toyota iM. Also, the no-cost tan color option offers a far brighter atmosphere than some of the half-beige choices in cars like the Hyundai Elantra GT. While the Golf feels premium within its field, its also a premium price within its own family. The base model starts at $20,715, which is $2,000 more than the larger, but related, Jetta sedan. The reason VW is making customers pay more for less space is because of the longer list of features in the Golf. It comes standard with a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine producing 170 horsepower 22 percent more than the base Jetta. The option lists for these two cars are similar enough that the hatchback and the sedan become comparably equipped (engine, interior features, etc.) once about $23K is spent on either. Still, the Jetta cannot match the Golfs handling. The hatchbacks slightly shorter wheelbase, and more importantly its fully independent suspension, make for a sharper feeling on the road. Volkswagen pays close attention to this area because the Golf is significantly more popular in Europe, where tighter handling is appreciated in a smaller package. In fact, not all of the Golfs direct competitors have an independent rear suspension as standard. This wont be a deal breaker for every hatchback fan, but some drivers will feel the difference. There is a limit to the Golfs appeal. VW is good at not making people pay extra for stylish interior/exterior color combinations, but there are other ways to rack up the price quickly. Options like the Fender stereo system and keyless ignition might seem like small addons, but they are often part of larger packages that could quickly boost the cost above $25K. At that price point, a bevy of other vehicles come into play everything from the sportier GTI hatchback to larger crossovers. The Golfs niche is not very broad. But this VW occupies a space at the crossroads of something distinctive, versatile, affordable and even a bit fun to drive. And theres an undeniable charm in owning a car thats different from but at the same time more practical than everybody elses in the neighborhood. So shop wisely, but dont be too surprised if you bring home a Golf. BEHIND THE WHEELVolkswagen Golf offers the practicality of being different mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The thief included a note explaining his remorse: I have been an avid follower of the Welsh kings and their history, and so I took this rock. Ever since, I have had the most awful luck as if Llewellyn (sic) himself was angry with me. Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native prince of Wales, was beheaded and buried at the abbey in 1282, and legend says his ghost haunts the abbey. The trust that manages the abbey put the returned stone and the note on display, presumably to deter future sticky-fingered visitors.IroniesA Turkish homeless man who was sentenced to house arrest in June has had his sentence altered to better reflect his circumstances. Baris Alkan, 31, had been confined to a specific area, an empty spot enclosed by metal plates, near a bus station after being detained for using and selling drugs. I dont have a home address, so I have to stay here, he said. Even though I dont have a house, Im under house arrest. The court subsequently lifted the house arrest order and now requires Alkan to sign in at a nearby police station once a month.People different from usEmily Mueller, 33, of Ohio asked a photographer friend, Kendrah Damis, to take pictures of her pregnant with her fourth child and covered in 20,000 bees. Mueller, who is a beekeeper, checked with her doctor before the photo session and was stung three times during the shoot. She said she associates bees with life and death: Bees came into my life in a time that we had just suffered a miscarriage, Mueller said. Thats where everything fell into place for me when honeybees entered my life. She hopes the maternity photos will highlight the importance of bees.Least-competent criminalsSteven Gomez-Maya, 20, handed tellers at the TD Bank North in Seymour, Conn., a note on Aug. 19, demanding money. He apparently failed to notice that his note was written on the back of his girlfriends pay stub, and when he tried to return to the bank (presumably to retrieve the note), the doors were locked. Seymour police tracked down the owner of the pay stub, and when they arrived at the girlfriends home, they caught Gomez-Maya as he was driving away. The hat he wore during the robbery and a large amount of $10 bills were found in the car, and he was charged with first-degree robbery.Animals run amokA swan on the grounds of Blarney Castle in Ireland suffered a harrowing experience on Aug. 31 when it landed in a field where cattle were grazing. At first, the cattle just looked the swan over, but when the bird hissed at them, they took off after it. The swan tried to fly away, but the cows butted and stamped on it. Garden manager at the castle Adam Whitbourn was finally able to lean over a fence and drag the swan out of harms way. It was an aggressive attack, Whitbourn said. I put (the swan) back in the lake and have checked on him twice. Hes sitting there looking bedraggled so Im hoping its a happy ending. Rather than a swan song.The classic middle nameAnthony Wayne Sandusky, 26, of Mascotte, was welcomed into the home of a Groveland woman on Aug. 22 because he had nowhere else to go. She went to sleep, and when she woke up, her mother said Sandusky had closed all the blinds, locked the doors and was carrying their possessions out the back door. She found two bags of items in a nearby field, including a stamp collection valued at $250,000. When confronted by police, Sandusky said he took the items because the woman was being mean to him.Compelling explanationAndrew Shaw, 44, of Lancashire, England, appeared before the Blackpool Magistrates Court on Aug. 29, facing three counts of possessing obscene images of children on his computer. Shaw and his wife arrived at the court with their guide dogs, as both are legally blind (Shaw has a small amount of sight in one eye). His attorney explained: It may be argued that difficulty with his vision makes it difficult to put an age to images he downloads. He may think he is looking at 16-year-olds. Shaw was granted bail.OopsMost news items about sinkholes highlight the large size of the hole. But a man in Brooklyn, N.Y., was trapped by a sinkhole in the middle of the street that was just big enough to swallow his leg. Steven Suarez, 33, was making a delivery with a hand truck on Myrtle Avenue on Aug. 29 when his foot disappeared into the pavement. I was scared, Suarez said. It was my whole entire right leg, up until my tailbone basically. Suarez was trapped for nearly an hour as bystanders directed traffic around him and rescue workers tried to free him. Co-worker Joe Grunbaum, 32, said Suarez seemed to be in a lot of pain, but the only casualty of the incident turned out to be Suarezs right sneaker.

H00616 8/16 ANTIQUESVictorian furniture is so out of date that best work is treated as art BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELLarge, ornate Victorian furniture is selling for low prices at auctions for many reasons. Houses are smaller and bedrooms have more windows and closets, so there are fewer plain walls for large double beds or dressers. Plus, the elaborate carvings are out of style. A few makers are so important that their work is treated as art. John Henry Belter, Alexander Roux, Joseph Meeks and John Jelliff are a few designers who still are getting very high prices; however, bargains also exist in wellmade, stylish Victorian pieces manufactured away from the East Coast. The H.B. Mudge Furniture Co. of Cincinnati designed and made a Victorian suite consisting of a washstand with mirror, commode, dresser and a bed with a high, carved headboard and footboard. It descended in the Mudge family and was auctioned by Cowan Auctions of Cincinnati for $5,400 (includes buyers premium). The company was founded in 1837 and made many kinds of household furniture. Q: I inherited a large collection of HB Quimper dishes. They are hand painted with pictures of Breton peasants in outdoor settings and are marked HB, Quimper, France, F.303.D.201 and B.Y. What are they worth? A: Tin-glazed hand-painted pottery was made by three different factories in Quimper, France, starting in the 1700s. Pierre Bousquet founded a pottery in Quimper in 1708. Antoine de la Hubaudiere became the factory manager in 1782, and the factory became the HB Factory (Hubaudiere-Bousquet). Two of the factories merged in 1913. HB Quimper merged with the others in 1968. After more changes in ownership, it became Henriot-Quimper, which still is in business. This mark was used from 1968 to 1984. The number after F is the form number and the number after D is the decor number. The initials B.Y. are the initials of the painter. Your dishes are not very old and are worth about half what new Quimper sells for. Q: I have about 100 old baseball coins from the early 1960s. Most of them are plastic and some are metal. They came in Junket Brand products like Salada Tea. I have coins with Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Don Drysdale, Roberto Clemente, Early Wynn, etc. I also have about 20 football coins. Can you provide any information on these? A: Salada Tea and Junket were both part of Salada Foods Inc. (now part of Redco Foods Inc.). Individual coins picturing baseball and football stars were packed in Salada Tea and Junket products in 1962. The 1962 baseball set included 1-inch diameter plastic coins with a piece of paper picturing a player on one side. The complete set included 221 players, plus 40 variations. The 1963 baseball set called All Star Baseball Coins included 63 metal coins with paper inserts. The top 10 stars of each team were pictured. Coins for American League players had blue rims, and coins for National League players had red rims. Information about the player is on the reverse side. Holders and a box were issued to hold the coins. You have coins from both the 1962 and 1963 baseball sets. Many coins sell for less than $5, but superstars coins sell for much more. Recent prices include $45 for a 1962 Yogi Berra coin and $90 for a 1962 Roger Clemente coin. A complete set of 1962 coins, plus 1963 coins for Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, sold at auction for over $1,800. Q: I recently bought a Watt bowl as a potential investment. Its very different from most Watt pieces Ive found, and I cant find any information on it. Its a light blue bowl with a black drip edge. It measures 10 inches across the top and is 3 inches high. The bottom is stamped with three rings and reads Watt Orchard Ware, U.S.A. 106. Can you tell me what its value is and when it was made? A: Orchard Ware is both a Watt shape name and a pattern name. Eva Ziesel designed most of the shapes. It was decorated with two colors, dripped or spattered, in at least 18 different color combinations. Some pieces were decorated with hand-painted designs. Brown with white drip is the most common color combination. Orchard Ware was first shown in Wa tts 1959 catalog. The number 06 is the mold number. Its value is $30. Q: I just bought a handcrafted silver ring with a multicolored flat stone with a tag that reads sterling silver with an authentic piece of Fordite. But no one here knows what Fordite is. Can you help? A: We first learned about Fordite over 20 years ago. Many car manufacturers were closing their plants. Someone noticed that the floor where they had been painting the cars was covered with a thick layers of hard automobile paint. Since cars were made in many different colors, the floor had swirling patterns in the hardened material. Rock hounds and other collectors mined the material, sometimes with permission and sometimes after the plants were about to be torn down. Small pieces of this mined material are still available, and they usually are made into jewelry. We have seen pendants and rings made with Fordite set in gold that sell for more than $1,000. Tip: It is best to wash marble with distilled water. Any trace of acid or iron in the water will cause deterioration or stains. Use soft soap, a bit of ammonia and a plastic container.

Frantz, M.D., FACS Medical Director Dont Let Cataracts Hinder Your Life.A B d catarac t ct or f e PUZZLES 51 PICKUP HOROSCOPESVIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Relationships personal or professional present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family matters need attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others.

Celebrate With Us 2017 CONTRACT BRIDGEWrong way to run a railroad BY STEVE BECKEROne tends to become a victim of habit in certain situations because they seem to be similar to others encountered previously. This tendency can prove costly at times, as witness what happened to South in this deal. West led the jack of clubs against Souths four-spade contract. Declarer won with the queen, crossed to dummy with a trump and led a heart to the jack, losing to the queen. West made the fine return of a trump, which declarer took in dummy to lead another heart. When the king lost to the ace, West returned a third round of trumps. South was now at the end of his rope. He could not avoid losing a diamond and another heart, and so finished down one. The ironic part of the hand is that if declarer had been dealt three small hearts instead of the K-J-5, he would surely have made the contract. In that case, given the same opening lead, he would have arranged to ruff one of his heart losers in dummy. After winning the club, he would have immediately returned a heart. Then, regardless of what the defenders did next, he would play another heart, putting himself in position to trump his third heart in dummy and so guarantee the contract. But the presence of the K-J-5 of hearts induced declarer to cross to dummy with a trump in order to lead toward his heart honors. This in turn opened the gate for repeated trump leads by the defense and eventually brought about Souths downfall. To avoid this pitfall, declarer should have led any heart from his hand at trick two, and 10 tricks would have been assured.

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).The Beguiled (Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning) During the Civil War, a wounded Union soldier is taken in by Confederate women who subsequently compete for his attention. It starts slow, but its fun to watch the story twist and the third act packs a wallop. Rated R.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton) Spider-Man (Mr. Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Mr. Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor and a winning performance from Mr. Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13.War for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Mr. Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Mr. Harrelson). Thats right: Caesar only wants revenge on one guy, so theres not much war here at all. Its one of the many letdowns in this third part of the new Apes trilogy. Rated PG-13.Despicable Me (Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker) Gru (Mr. Carell), his long-lost brother Dru (Mr. Carell again) and Lucy try to stop 1980s-inspired villain Balthazar Bratt (Mr. Parker) from destroying Hollywood. Too much focus on Mr. Carells two characters and not enough on the villain and story make this an uneven disappointment. Rated PG.Transformers: The Last Knight 1/2(Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock) Once again the Autobots get Mark Wahlbergs help in saving the world from the Decepticons. Its understandable if youre expecting this fifth installment to be terrible, but its actually pretty amusing. The story is more clever than you expect, and the visual effects and action are strong. Rated PG-13. The Hero (Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman) An aging former movie star (Mr. Elliott) tries to reconcile his disappointing life after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Although Mr. Elliotts performance is stellar, the story is underdeveloped and some important characters barely register. Rated R.

FILM CAPSULESWind River 1/2(Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille) In a frigid and remote Wyoming territory, a hunter/tracker (Mr. Renner) and inexperienced FBI agent (Ms. Olsen) search for the murderer of a teenage girl (Ms. Asbille). The frostiness of the snowcovered terrain provides a nice texture to the compelling story; too bad the last act is a bit weak. Rated R.The Only Living Boy in New York 1/2(Callum Turner, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale) In his early 20s and aimless in New York City, Thomas (Mr. Turner) sleeps with his fathers (Mr. Brosnan) mistress (Ms. Beckinsale) and ends up even more confused about life. The ending is decent, but this is the type of indie film thats full of high-minded ideas that never amount too much. Rated R.The Trip To Spain 1/2(Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. 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 Ms. Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. 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.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 scenes especially one on a stairwell toward the end are excellent. Rated R.

YesTheres no room for Patricia Dombrowski in the rap world. Shes an overweight white girl from New Jersey whos laughed at and rejected whenever she dares to ask for a chance. But she wouldnt be an inspiring dreamer, and we wouldnt have Patti Cake$, if she didnt try. Shes earnest and likeable and we want her to succeed, which is why its a shame writer/director Geremy Jaspers movie isnt more of a success. Contrivances, melodrama and predictability hinder an otherwise engaging narrative that at times has us dancin in our seats. Patti (Danielle Macdonald) can see the bright lights of Manhattan across the Hudson River, but shes far from having her dreams come true. Shes a lowly bart ender whose alcoholic mother (Bridgett Everett) had a promising singing career that was dashed when she became pregnant with Patti. Money was then and continues to be an issue, so much so that they cant even pay Pattis grandmothers (Cathy Moriarty) medical bills. But Patti dreams. With the rap name Patti Cake$, she and best friend Jheri (Siddharth Dhananjay), whos Indian and works as a pharmacist, create music in their spare time. Opportunities knock, doors open and close. When they meet a sound mixer whos a self-described anarchist (Mamoudou Athie), they get even closer to making their dreams a reality. Mr. Jaspers film hits typical hangout spots such as bowling alleys and diners, and if youve ever been to Jersey, the divided highway will look notably familiar. Keeping the film grounded in the small-town nature of Pattis life means were constantly reminded of how much she yearns to escape it, which in turn makes each blow to the contrary sting that much more. Try all she wants, she could still end up stuck there; its not the worst thing in the world, except when you consider its the last thing she wants. The music is catchy enough to stick in your ear especially the songs Tough Love and P, B & J but its not necessarily good enough to make you want to buy the soundtrack. In a way this makes sense; these are unproven amateurs creating the music, after all. At the same time, this is a professionally made feature film that weve paid money to see. Cant help but wish the music were a little better. Regardless, the real revelation and appeal of Patti Cake$ lies in Ms. Macdonald, the heretofore unknown actress who plays Patti. She will remind some, both physically and in terms of singing prowess, of Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), which is oddly apropos given that both Ms. Macdonald and Ms. Wilson are Australian. But consider that for a moment: An Australian actress learned how to rap and mastered a New Jersey accent, and it all feels lived-in and natural. Depending on the popularity of the film, this could be a starmaking turn for Ms. Macdonald. The plot will remind some of Hustle & Flow (2005), which was a great movie, and Eminems Mile (2002), which was a good movie. Patti Cake$ is a notch below those, yet respectable enough in its own right to be worthy of your attention. Give it a chance. Like Patti, its not perfect, but it will win you over by the end. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Danielle Macdonald received a standing ovation after Patti Cake$ premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year.

Be sure to check ahead before heading out.BY TOM HALLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentOn the heels of summers successful runs of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror and The Smell of the Kill, Laboratory Theater of Florida opens the 2017-18 season with another cult classic comedy. Del Shores Sordid Lives, a semiautobiographical homage to inglorious idiosyncrasy, is set to run Sept. 15-30 at the theater in Fort Myers.Family and friends of Peggy Ingram are converging on Winters, Texas, for the matriarchs funeral. They arent just shocked and grief-stricken over Peggys unexpected demise. Theyre scandalized as well. Peggy, it seems, died after hitting her head on the bathroom sink in a seedy motel after tripping over the wooden legs of her lover, her very married and decades younger neighbor, G.W. Nethercott. But poor Peggy was the least flamboyant character within her own inner circle. For example, theres her free-spirited daughter LaVonda, her cross-dressing gay son Brother Boy (whos been institutionalized for 23 years), her closeted 20-something nephew Ty (whos moved to West Hollywood to pursue an acting career), Tys deranged ex-girlfriend Sara and Pegs eldest daughter Latrelle (a woman quixotically trying to keep up appearances in the small Southern Baptist town she calls home). Add to that a bar owner named Bubba, his lounge singer Bitsy Mae, G.W.s disgraced wife, a security guard named Bumper, an evil shrink who wants to de-homosexualize Brother Boy so she can appear on Oprah and Peggys chain-smoking younger sister, and you have the recipe for an over-the-top black comedy about white trash striving to figure out who they are and, more to the point, who they wish to be. It takes a large and talented cast to breathe life into a stage play like Sordid Lives. For Lab Theater, director Scott Carpenter has assembled Joann Haley (Latrelle Williamson), Cindi Heimberg (Lavonda Dupree), Kenneth Johnson (Earl Brother Boy Ingram), Patrick Erhardt (Bubba), Shelley Sanders (Bitsy Mae Harling) Drew Larman (Ty Williamson) and Brian Linthicum (G.W. Nethercott). Each of them has made their character their own, within the confines of the script, of course, Mr. Carpenter promises.Most people are familiar with Sordid Lives not through the play, but rather the movie, its sequel and associated television series. These subsequent iterations impose expectations no playwright, no matter how prescient, could have envisioned. But Mr. Carpenter and his cast have found a unique way to embrace and incorporate the plays afterlife. Fans of the movies and the series will hear certain nuances in phraseology and see costumes that reference the movies and the series, the director says.But even if youve seen neither the movies nor the TV series, Sordid Lives at Lab Theater promises to entertain with its tapestry of lovably dysfunctional characters and the plays overarching message of family, love and acceptance. Its no accident that Mr. Shores the playwright chose the 1835 Charlotte Elliott hymn Just As I Am as the plays culminating anthem. Sordid Lives>> Who: Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When: Sept. 15-30 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $23 for adults, $20 for seniors/ military, $10 for students. >> Info: 218-0481 or www.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Big Hickory Seafood Grille, 26107 Hickory Blvd., Bonita Springs; 9920991 In a bayside marina on a quiet stretch of Hickory Boulevard, Big Hickory is off the beaten path but has long been worth tracking down. The expansive view of boats, mangrove islands and birds makes the bayside deck a hot spot, and Big Hickory enjoys a reputation for awardwinning dishes that play with local seafood and fruit. Think plantain-crusted grouper with banana-infused sauce and shrimp tacos drizzled with Key lime aioli. The popularity of such signature items might explain why the menu has not changed much over the years. But we can report that the mahi coco loco (coated in coconut and topped with pineapple and b uttery rum sauce) and apple-mango grouper (with salsa and passion fruit sauce) are as good as ever. Service can be leisurely, so sit back and enjoy the view. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2016 Catch 41 Bar n Grill, Ramada Inn, 1100 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 263-6046 The Ramada has a winner in its latest restaurant, run by talented Executive Chef David Lani, a Culinary Institute of America alum who helped launch 7th Avenue Social. The atmosphere is casual, the food is fun and fanciful. Cucumber mojitos started the meal off on a cool and refreshing note. Three Maryland style mini crab cakes with remoulade, grilled Mexican street corn and cotija cheese made a great appetizer. The bao bun tacos tucked into Chinese-style buns rather than taco shells come in three versions, and I liked all three: the crispy pork belly with charred jalapenos, mango and bourbon glaze; blackened shrimp with kim chee slaw; and wild mushrooms with hoisin, onion and cucumber. Red grouper sliders and a pair of mini hot butter poached lobster rolls with garlic beurre blanc were great entrees. Also well done were sides of hand-cut fries and roasted cauliflower with garlic and Parmesan. The stout beer milk chocolate pudding is a great ending for beer lovers. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2017 Sophias Ristorante Italiano, 3545 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 597-0744 Tucked between a Harley Davidson dealership and a Hawthorne Suites sits a gem of a restaurant that seems as if its been lifted right out of Italy. Sophias is filled with lovely Tuscan browns and golds with mosaic patterns on tables and floors. The staff is uniformly gracious, and some also come with charming Italian accents. And the food. Try not to overload on the house-made breads served with herb-studded olive oil. The fried calamari was excellent, but I could have made a meal of the tender-crisp rapini and well-seasoned sausage with polenta. The zuppe de
pesce is a remarkable mountain of seafood, but veal is a specialty here and the osso buco, a special that evening, was fork-tender and delicious with a side of porcini risotto. Sea bass with clams, caperberries and house-made linguini was just right. For dessert, the house made tiramisu was light, delicious and ample for two. The wine list is noteworthy as well. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2015 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 highfructose 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 BBQ 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. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 21 Spices by Chef Asif, Sugden Park Plaza, 4270 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 919-8830 Head east on Tamiami Trail, that is for a taste of modern Indian cuisine as imagined and prepared by Chef Asif Rasheed. Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops were moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard. From the entrees, great choices were the seafood medley, the saffron chicken korma and the Nizams kofte, vegetable and cheese dumplings. Full bar.

Sometimes its because the wine somehow went out of fashion and then came back. They do that. Other times new types or styles of a particular wine are developed and find their way to the market. And then theres the seasonal situation: We generally write about and review wines that are suitable for the weather and time of year. Ive never quite believed that we have to drink only whites in the summer and only full-bodied reds during cooler seasons. But having sampled widely and with great dedication, Ive arrived at a conclusion about ros: These wines are excellent choices pretty much whenever. You can make ros wines in two ways. Its perfectly legitimate to simply mix some red and white together, which is how many of them are created. Or if you do it the classier and more expensive way, you crush red grapes, leave the juice on the skins until the liquid achieves the color you want, then drain it off. Plus, ross can be made from just about any red varietal. In Tavel, in southern France, many are made from Grenache and Syrah, which are the major grapes in the region. One of the samples in the list below is made primarily from Cabernet. But weve sampled others made from Zinfandel and even Pinot Noir. Since these wines come in such a wide variety of styles, youre sure to find one thats light enough or full-bodied enough, or dry or sweet enough to accompany almost any kind of food and any type of occasion. And since excellent ross are made all over the world, you can choose the traditional styles from the south of France (especially Tavel and Lirac) or other types from California, Washington State, or even South America. These offer a very satisfying range of styles. Villa Gemma Cerasuolo dAbruzzo Ros ($15) The darkest color of all the ross we sampled deep cranberry with a nose that fulfills the promise of the color. Profound cherry notes and an explosion of fruit on the palate. The grape is Negroamaro, and its extremely full-bodied for a ros. Serve well-chilled and enjoy. WW 89-90.Frescobaldi Alie Ros Ammiraglia 2016 ($22) Lovely light pink color with flower peach aromas. Plenty of refreshing strawberry and raspberry flavors. Refreshing any time. WW 86.Raimat Castell de Raimat Ros 2015 ($12) This blend of 75 percent Cabernet and 30 percent Tempranillo delivers spicy cherry aromas with overtones of smoke. The palate is a pleasing mix of strawberry and blueberry notes, a little bit of spice, and a sweetish finish. Serve well-chilled. We liked it. WW 88-89.Fel Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2015 ($38) A lighter-than-usual garnet color with aromas of blackberry and pronounced raspberry. Soft and light-bodied on the palate: spice, cedar and strawberry. WW 89.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Recently, my husband and I attended a wine tasting at a Renaissance festival. I fell in love with a dessert wine called Simply Psychodelic and purchased a couple of bottles from a local winery. When we opened it at home and poured it into our glasses, we noticed right away a grainy sugary ring left by the wine. I have never seen this before and it made me raise my eyebrows. When we tasted it, it was much sweeter than we remembered. Is it common practice to add sugar to wine? A. The sugary particles you saw were most likely crystals of tartaric acid cream of tartar. This sometimes crystallizes in wine, especially whites, and usually settles to the bottom of the bottle or sticks to the inside surface of the cork. It is harmless and no cause for concern. In the U.S., it is not legal to add sugar to wine, though some countries (like Germany) permit the practice. Its done during fermentation to increase alcohol content.
