Every Floridian experienced Hurricane Irma differently, but all of us continue to deal with the aftermath of the historic storm and its untold economic and emotional impact. Some got lucky and were spared the worst. Countless others have had their lives upended, with homes and businesses destroyed or heavily damaged throughout the region, widespread power outages continuing 10 days later and flooding in numerous areas still preventing families from even returning to their homes to assess the damage. Social media has been ablaze with stories, images and video of the massive recovery and aid effort well underway from the southernmost point in Key West through the whole of the Sunshine State.

Geezers. Retired folks. The golden agers, the long in tooth, the ancient, aging, hoary, oldtimer has-beens. The old fogies. Roughly 15 percent of the American population is 65 or older. That percentage is going up as boomers switch strides, from running to walking to limping. At some point the oldies need care and care is like farming. It takes time. You do it in place, not somewhere else. You have to be there, you have to be patient, and you have to work it. And you have to have a reason. Love? Or not. When eight old people ranging from 71 to 99 died in a Hollywood nursing home last week shortly after Hurricane Irma because the place lost power and air conditioning, it had no working generator as required by law, and the residents were left in the heat until too late, some of us began to think again: What the hell are we doing with our old people? You arent going to get rich you arent going to travel, fish, sit and meditate, expand your business empire, or go bar hopping on a whim when youre providing care to old people. Its one thing to mouth nice pleasantries about how important old people are. About how you love your parents. How they were the Greatest Generation who survived the Depression and won World War II, or the generation that invented rock n roll, helped establish civil rights, and either fought it or got us out of Vietnam. About how much we love and admire old people and need to find new ways to use their wisdom and experience. But the truth is more complex. Many are happy to admire old people from afar, which is why the nursing home business in the U.S. assisted care, or independent living or put-them-out-topasture-and-forget-about-it is thriving. We often give away the care of our old people to contract caretakers. The wealthier we are, or the old people are, the easier that is to do. But wealthy or not, why do we let our parents drift away in the care of strangers? Is it because we dont care? Sometimes, sure, even if we tell ourselves we do care. The movie Grand Torino, a patchy tour de force about race, immigration and family loyalty (or lack thereof) from the conservative Republican filmmaker and actor Clint Eastwood, gets to the heart of Americans who want to care, and pretend to care, but dont ultimately care about old people, including their own old people. But even that is too simplistic a notion. Old people, in my experience, carry two singular fears, and neither one has anything to do with dying. One, they dont want to be a burden to their children. And two, they dont want to lose their minds their ability to think rationally, make sound judgments, understand the world around them and remember the details of daily living that let each of us care for ourselves. Life guarantees none of that, nor does it care what old people fear. The result is both a burden and a glory most of us will have a chance to accept or reject. Are we going to care for our old people? Or will we smile politely at them, speak as if we were speaking to 5-year-olds, and move on as quickly as possible? In my own case, I have a wife and a son who embraced my desire to let my 90-year-old mother live with us in a house of no more than 1,100 square feet thats also populated from time to time by dogs, cats and a lot of dirt. My mother is good with it. This is not virtue on my part; its simply a matter of clannish loyalty to her and to my father. I remain loyal to them because they were loyal to me. I told my father I would always take care of my mother this was 18 years ago as he was dying of stomach cancer and I intend to carry out that promise, as far as I can. My sister, who with my brother-in-law watched out for her for years when she was still completely independent, and my brother, are not able. But I am able. You might be, too. Its hard work, like farming. Some of its mildly unpleasant. You might have to clean a toilet more often, or do laundry more often, or take care of food and medical needs you never thought of in the life your parents gave you, and you made. When Im not able, I will seek the contracted help we Americans provide so readily. Although its a business, it often comes with love and tender respect from the caretakers themselves. Not in the case of the Hollywood nursing home, though. There are no excuses. And heres the funny thing about farming, or about caring for old people: You get a lot more out of it than you put into it, ultimately. And so do those who help you your kids, for example. Can you imagine being 15 and living with a 90-year-old who can remember and remembering her when youre 70 or 80, say? So maybe you wont go to Paris when you want to. But you might come to a place youve never seen, and an understanding youve never imagined, by standing up for old people who no longer can stand up for themselves.

Touted as a game-changer for global warming, the much-ballyhooed Paris conference extracted pledges from 195 nations that experts said would hold temperature rise from preindustrial levels to well below 2 degrees Celsius by 2100. That, we were told, would arrest warming, curb sea level rise and even out weather extremes. Many, this writer included, thought the Paris accords were a hoax, a cruel sleight of hand to sucker countries into making promises they had no intention of keeping. To abandon fossil fuels, convert to renewables and be paid a handsome subsidy for doing so. To ignore the economic impact on their countries. And even if everyone complied, some said the Paris goals couldnt be achieved anyway. They werent realistic, it was too late, the temperature trajectory was too high, the needed carbon cuts would be impossible to achieve. Paris was a kumbaya pie in the sky. The naysayers were vilified, mocked in the media, as was President Trump when he announced the U.S. pullout. Now comes vindication. A new study published in Nature Climate Change says there is only a 5 percent chance the earth will not be warmed by at least 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century and a 90 percent likelihood that temperatures will rise between 2 and 4.9 degrees Celsius. And these increases, we are told, will come in spite of a 90 percent global reduction in carbon intensity due to advances in green energy. Thats a serious downer. And theres more. Coal usage is up worldwide, not down, most of the increase going to China, but a big bump also to Germany, whose green intent has been undone by crippling power costs. Further, India, a Paris lynchpin, is wallowing in debt and almost certain to abandon its pledges. All of this comes at a time of dire predictions for sea-level rise, crop failures and heat-related deaths. Ocean rise, we are told, will claim $36 billion worth of Florida property and swallow up to 20 percent of the states landmass by the end of the century. The storm surge from Hurricane Irma showed where the water will go in Collier County. So whats the answer? What can we do? Political finger-pointing wont help. Neither will buying electric cars or covering the country with subsidized windmills or solar panels. We cant turn back the weather clock. Damage has been done and that damage is irreversible. But there are some things we can do. A recent Wall Street Journal article headlined Climate Change Isnt the End of the World offers a plan. The key, say the authors, is to prepare and adapt. Get ready for whats coming. We cant stop weather-related changes, but we can plan for them. Here are some ideas: Double down on plant hybridization to develop a spectrum of droughtresistant crops. Boost public-health funding for coping with heat-driven diseases. Ramp up desalination capacity to compensate for diminished irrigation and drinking-water supplies. Institute regular monitoring and mapping to determine how fast the sea is rising and where the water is going. Revise building codes and zoning ordinances to plan for ocean rise, and require that new coastal buildings and roadways be elevated. (That would also mitigate damage from Irma-like storms.) Upgrade drainage facilities and install pumping stations. Plan for phased relocation of coastal power plants and waste-treatment and water-purification facilities to higher ground. Discourage coastal construction by imposing stiff building surcharges. Phase out flood insurance in lowlying areas. These are stop-gap measures. Eventually people will have to relocate, pick up and move because cities are flooded and manufacturing and farming have moved elsewhere. Turn off the TV, Mr. PresidentDonald Trump is the first president in U.S. history to have been baited into undermining his own negotiating position by negative TV coverage. Less than 12 hours after Attorney General Jeff Sessions explained that the administration is ending DACA Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals because its unconstitutional, Trump tweeted that he might revive the program if Congress doesnt act. This was an implicit admission that hes bluffing on DACA, which gives Democrats every incentive not to trade anything meaningful for a codification of the program. Why make any painful concessions to save DACA if the president is loath to truly terminate it? Surely, Trump wasnt thinking of any strategic or legislative imperatives; he was thinking only of how to push back against commentators calling him heartless. The time of the tweet 8:38 p.m. suggests that he was watching TV, and reporting has confirmed as much. Which raises the questions: Doesnt the president have better things to do than watch political punditry on cable TV shows? As one of the most famous and powerful people on the planet, why does he care what pundits say about him? And doesnt he realize that his immigration agenda will get attacked by most commentators no matter what? President Barack Obama famously described himself as having a pen and a phone (thats how we got DACA). Trump has a phone and a remote control, and often works them in tandem as he criticizes, praises and comments on things said about him on air. Trump is the most unusual combination of a politician who, on the one hand, was elected president by thumbing his nose at media elites and, on the other, is obsessed about what media elites write and say about him. Trump is experiencing the agony of the media-bashing media figure. He follows whats said on cable TV more closely than many people who make a living as commentators on cable TV. He sometimes knows more about the industry gossip than people who work in the industry. This reflects his background as a TV star who leveraged his fame into the presidency. But it is, needless to say, highly unusual. George W. Bush didnt pay much attention to his press coverage, confident that history would get it right and unwilling to get diverted from doing more important things. Barack Obama had an Olympian disregard for political punditry (as for many things). Trump clearly feeds off the attention and considers the negative coverage, in part, as a motivator (Ill show those bastards on CNN ...). But his obsession with the coverage also distorts his judgment. The DACA tweet was an unforced error, or, to be more precise, an error forced by cable chatter he should be ignoring. There are a couple of ways out of the dilemma. Trump can abandon his program and perhaps get some praise for growing in office (while destroying his presidency). He can continue, agitated by the coverage, to lash out, sometimes self-defeatingly. Or he can turn off the TV. The right answer is Click!, but hes as unlikely to give up the remote as he is his phone. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly TRECKER SEE TRECKER, A6

A6 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Hurricane Irma hit hard. Countless lives have been upended all across Florida, including the Naples area, which is the heart of Lake Michigan Credit Unions Weve asked our Michigan members and employees to support our partnership with the American Red Cross with a special relief fund to assist all who have been s as we rebuild. Irma was tough. But southwest Florida is tougher. Our Florida branches have all re-opened for business. Were with you, Florida. But all of this will happen gradually, and there will be time to plan and adapt. To be clear, nobody is suggesting we give up on renewables. Far from it. There is still much to be done. While warming is inevitable, the extent and timing are not. The key is to provide economic incentives for using green energy. As climate scientist Andrew Dessler says: Falling costs of renewable energy would be a major factor in reducing emissions. And to get there we will have spend a lot of money. Danish scientist Bjorn Lomborg writes: True progress in reducing carbon emissions will require far-reaching advances in green energy, and that will mean massive investment in research and development. I agree. And thats a far better use of taxpayer dollars than squandering them on subsidies that simply mask the inability of renewables to compete in the free market. Some years ago futurists David King and Richard Layard, writing in the London Financial Times, proposed a mammoth international project. The goal, they said, was bulk energy produced more cheaply by renewables than by any fossil fuel. No subsidies. Produce clean energy so cheaply that everyone will want it. Coal, oil and gas would fall by the wayside, and wed have energy nirvana. Clean, renewable and forever. The endpoint would be one gigawatt supplied on a 24-hour basis to cities in America, Europe and Asia. To get there, Mr. King and Mr. Layard said, breakthroughs would be needed in conversion efficiency, storage and a host of other things. Funding would come from the G20 countries, each committing 0.05 percent of its GDP for 10 years. Its visionary, of course, and it wont happen. But it underscores the level of commitment needed for renewables to make an impact. The final point is to recognize climate change for what it is: a long-term proposition with uncertain timing. Its low on almost everybodys priority list. President Obama called it the greatest threat to humanity. Few agree. Nuclear conflict with North Korea poses a far greater and more immediate threat. Then theres rampant poverty, hunger and infectious disease pandemics. Locally, were concerned about recovering from Irma. Not many are thinking about climate change right now.

With help from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and United Way, 600 Visa and MasterCard cards were purchased in $250 increments and will be distributed through the Salvation Army Naples and Catholic Charities to residents of Golden Gate, Immokalee and Everglades City to help with immediate needs for food, water, gas and lost income. FineMark National Bank & Trust and First Florida Integrity Bank arranged the sale of the gift cards, waiving the activation fee, so the total amount can go to victims for hurricane assistance. We know victims are in dire need in these hard hit areas of Collier County, said Eileen Connolly-Keesler, foundation president and CEO. These gift cards will help people purchase gas and food and pay for their housing, she added. Together, we can come to the aid of those most in need. Ms. Connolly-Keesler added that locals can find additional resources and services via Collier 2-1-1, a 2 4-hour nonemergency helpline for those in need. The initiative, spearheaded by the United Way of Collier County, is typically for referral to health and social services that provide food, housing, medical and childcare services.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAs Hurricane Irmas assault on Southwest Florida became imminent, Shy Wolf Sanctuary prepared and braced for the worst. Trees and vines were trimmed to minimize damage. With nowhere to evacuate due to Irma targeting the entire state and beyond, the animals were secured in their enclosures. Irma ripped through Naples as a Category 3 hurricane, Shy Wolf founders Nancy and Kent Smith, Executive Director Deanna Deppen and senior volunteer Michelle Murphy stayed onsite to protect and care for the animals and property. We walked the perimeter and checked on the animals about every 20 minutes during the hurricane, Ms. Deppen said. It was a rough ride. Animals had to be moved mid-storm because some of the seniors were confused and wouldnt seek shelter. More vines and shutters were cu t off fences to prevent loss of the perimeter fence while the storm raged the entire time never seeing the calm of the eye. Miraculously, all resident and an additional 16 guest animals survived. Large trees on the property were lost and the animal enclosures suffered significant damage. Cleanup is underway and volunteers are needed to help with efforts. Once the debris is removed from the property, a fencing company will be needed to repair damaged enclosures. We are asking individuals and organizations to come volunteer and help clean up the sanctuary, Ms. Deppen said. Recovering from this disaster is a big project and will be both expensive and ongoing. We are grateful to our community and supporters around the world who care about our animals. On the heels of evacuation necessitated by raging wildfires in April, Irma left in her wake another reminder of the desperate need for Shy Wolf to make the move to a new and bigger sanctuary, she added. Sanctuary leaders are diligently looking for a new larger property of at least 20 acres in Collier or Lee counties to remain near their volunteer support. The animals are currently housed on 2.5 acres of private property with no buildings to shelter them in a natural disaster. New design plans include hurricane-rated buildings that would also function as fire and hurricane shelters. There will be extra kennels and space for temporary kennels or crates to house additional animals, whether it be first responders working the natural disaster or community members evacuating an emergency situation.To volunteer for repair/recovery efforts after Irma, or to find out how to help meet the goal of a new sanctuary home, visit www.shywolfsanctuary.org. Cindy PierceBold Irma makes Shy Wolf Sanctuary needs more pressing Helping handsGRACE PLACE FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES EXISTS TO SERVE THE NEEDI-EST, and Irma certainly didnt change that. The campus in densely populated Golden Gate City survived the storm without signi cant damage, and as soon as it was cleared of vegetation debris the beloved food pantry was up and running on a larger scale than ever before. Nonperishable food, water and ice donations are still needed and much appreciated, as are monetary gifts of any amount. Volunteers are also always welcome.

A friend whose Little Torch Key house was halfdemolished told us nobody south of Marathon had power or running water. Irma brought less building destruction to the mainland coast of Florida, but in the small, remote Collier County villages of Everglades City and Chokoloskee she dumped a million tons of bay-bottom mud. Receding storm surge left behind a thick layer of stinky, muck-like, dark, slick goo and sea grass/mangrove debris that covered everything. Removing it is a laborious process. First its shoveled out by the bucketful, then scrubbed out with a broom, mop and water hose. Lucky folks have a pressure washer that makes the job somewhat easier, but also sprays the muck airborne. A Chokoloskee man who looked like he could hoist two stone crab traps over his head told me: Wilma left the same muck in my house. By the time I was through shoveling that out, I just put down new plywood oors and forgot it. My kids would come over and be all, Dad, when you gonna put down carpet? But I never did it. And look now, Id just be pulling it all up! he said with a satis ed grin. As it is I can scrub that plywood, dry it out and go on. I aint pu tting carpet down this time either, no point. Anyway, my grandkids and kids is all safe, and thats all I really care about. Thats all that matters.

Robbie SpencerImmense need in Immokalee Health concerns swirl around Everglades City Best conversation overheard in the aftermath: But how will we ever replace all the beautiful landscaping? Its Florida; you can stick a pencil in the ground and itll grow a tree. Shared by Margie Hapke, Collier County Public UtilitiesTRAVIS ANDERSON / COURTESY PHOTOSVolunteers and staff from Guadalupe Social Services have been tireless in distributing relief food, water and supplies. The residents of this home on Lake Trafford Road were inside when Irma swept through. No one was hurt. A natural disaster medical team has been dispatched to Everglades City following Hurricane Irma. Workers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services arrived Sept. 18 and will provide primary health-care services at First Baptist Church of Everglades City from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day until further notice. The announcement came after multiple local reports of potentially toxic stormwater lingering throughout the city and causing unsafe conditions on flooded streets and inside some homes and buildings. One man has died, and another had to have a leg amputated due to infections. Most of the city remains without power and many landmarks and structures have been damaged or destroyed, according to Taylor Caple, a manager at the historic Rod & Gun Club. People have lost everything, she said. The Rod & Gun Club is no exception. With the main building flooded, extensive roof and cosmetic issues and all of the rooms in the lodge sustaining damage, the business is in danger of shuttering. The club did not have flood insurance, according to Ms. Caple. While many have sent food, water and other relief supplies to the region, Ms. Caple said the primary need is financial help as well as manual labor to help with repairs. The Ochopee Fire Control District Station at 201 Buckner Ave. N., Everglades City, remains a drop-off point for supply donations.

DISREGARDED THE DAMAGE TO THE ROOF OF HIS FORT MYERS HOME AND THE SOGGY CARPET FROM RISING WATER IN HIS PUNTA GORDA OFFICE the week after Irma tore through Southwest Florida. He knew he fared better than others, many stranded without power or the fuel to get them home or to work. There were a lot of immediate needs in Naples, especially for gas, said Mr. Chapman, an insurance agent and owner of State Insurance Agency. Supply wasnt catching up to demand. The rst day, there was no gas. Then when it started to come in, there were still lines. People were waiting hours. We had power in the Port Charlotte of ce and one of our team members who lives in Naples was driving to the of ce. Port Charlotte had gas. They soon hatched an idea to personally deliver gas to Naples, rallying up friends and neighbors to collect gas cans no longer needed by folks in Lee and Charlotte counties and announcing on Facebook theyd be delivering gas to the areas hardest hit by Irma. It just took off, Mr. Chapman said. Within an hour we had 100 requests. There were quite a few nurses and doctors at NCH who had worked double and triple shifts and had nowhere to get gas and didnt want to wait. People needed to keep generators working to save their fridge. Mr. Chapman and colleagues delivered about 130 gallons dail y for the rst four days following the hurricane, providing ve to 10 gallons to re ghters, of cers and anyone who needed it and even a to-go can. The Independent Association of Agents saw what we were doing on Facebook and started raising money from all over the country, Mr. Chapman said. It contributed a $1,000 check. Even after gassing up Naples with about 500 gallons, he and his friends continued to help others during the weekend. Armed with chainsaws, they traveled to homes on Plantation Road in Bonita Springs and other areas of south Fort Myers to remove felled trees. I was in Port Charlotte for Charley and realize all the help I received, he said. I thought I have to give back. I hope I never have to return the favor.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYFor Ron Haagerman, owner of Marco Island-based Capt. Rons Awesome Everglades Adventures, it started in 1993 with an impromptu sailboat rescue off Caxambas Pass during that years No Name Storm, which shocked locals by packing hurricane-force winds into an errant winter system. Next came Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina, where Mr. Haagerman honed his amateur searchand-rescue skills atop the jet skis he normally reserves for tours through the waters of Marco Island and The Ten Thousand Islands. And finally, after he and business partner Matt Melican plucked Houston residents from flooded homes the the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Mr. Haagerman and a cohort of likeminded citizens organized into Marco Patriots as Hurricane Irma set her sights on their idyllic island home by the sea. I think I was born to do this, he said. We learn as we go, and there are things you have to roll with and make snap decisions. The group credits its success with having greater flexibility than many first responders, starting with its ability to customize a registration and mapping system before Irma hit. Using this system and the Zello app, volunteers were able to maintain communication will all registered users throughout which happened to be a good portion of islanders who didnt evacuate. Starting with coordinating safe spaces after condo windows blew out to beginning well-checks immediately after Irmas ugle eye passed over, the proud ranks of the Marco Patriots have not stopped their efforts to protect and provide for the community needs in the face of a catastrophic storm. Now that the immediate danger has passed, the group is focused on raising money through a GoFundMe page and distributing multiple truckloads of donated relief supplies to Marco Island, Everglades City, Chokoloskee and East Naples. Next up for the group is registration with FEMA to enhance its rescue and support missions. For more information about Marco Patriots, visit the groups Facebook page. Lindsey NesmithMarshalling the Marco Patriots Nick Kelly: humbled by givingPUNTA GORDA RESIDENT NICK KELLY CALLS HIS HURRICANE IRMA EXPERIENCE HUMBLING. GEORGIA GARRETT, MR. Kellys mother, made her home on Plantation Island in Everglades City for the past 26 years. When Irmas path moved westward, Ms. Garrett evacuated to Punta Gorda. She persuaded Mr. Kelly to take her home two days after Irma unleashed her wrath on Southwest Florida. Her waterfront home was a total loss after being hit by a 9-foot storm surge. Her worldly possessions now reside in 10 plastic bins. Their contents include family portraits that hung above the waist-deep waterline. Outside Ms. Garretts home, Plantation Island residents wandered around in shock. Neither FEMA nor the Red Cross had arrived. We cant let this happen to these people, Mr. Kelly thought. Once back in Punta Gorda, Mr. Kelly put word out that a trailer heading to Everglades City would be parked downtown. Within hours, it was lled with supplies that included everything from baby food to rubber boots. On Thursday, Mr. Kelly, Lee and Jamie Richardson and their two young children returned to Plantation Island. They went door to door asking people what they could use. We hugged, and we cried, Mr. Kelly said. He was struck by how little people took for themselves. In the midst of the devastation, many said, Someone else must need it more than we do. The group brought their remaining supplies to the Everglades City Fire Department where the Red Cross and National Guard were onsite. The guardsmen unloaded what was needed; still more provisions remained. The shing village of Goodland was the groups nal stop. They unloaded what remained in the trailer on pallets in a central part of town. People quickly gathered to take what they needed. Mr. Kelly returned home feeling con dent Everglades City residents would survive the disaster. These are tough people who live in a tough environment, he said. They will rebuild and come back. Nanette Crist Away they goWith heavy hearts, the staff and volunteers of Humane Society Naples said goodbye to 175 shelter pets Sunday morning, Sept. 17, loading them onto a Wings of Rescue ight and sending them off to the San Diego Humane Society. The move freed up space at HSN for dogs, cats, rabbits and other pets from throughout Florida displaced by Hurricane Irma. By Monday morning, Sept. 18, HSNs satellite adoption center at Coastland Center was up and running and remains open during regular mall hours.

Although the 43-acre property suffered extensive botanical and exhibit damage, all of the animals made it through the storm unscathed, save for two greater kudi, which are a woodland antelope found in eastern and southern Africa. Countless people have reached out with offers of manpower to help in the massive cleanup, but zoo of cials stress donations of money and supplies are the best way for locals to make a difference.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 NEWS A13Already living in a shelter because of abuse or neglect, the children of Youth Haven have even more need after Irma. Collier Countys only emergency shelter for abused and abandoned youth has received a huge outpouring of support from the community with food donations through a number of avenues. Now its most immediate needs are for cash donations and gift cards to help purchase desperately needed new clothing for the children: cotton t-shirts, tank tops, shorts, underwear, socks and flip-flops for boys and girls ages 6-18. The shelter cannot accept used clothing donations, so cash is the best way to provide aid. Paper towels and napkins, plastic cups, plates, forks and spoons are also needed, as are single-serving bottles of Gatorade. They are also exploring off-campus activities to occupy the kids and provide some fun experiences for them each day. Find out more about how you can help by going to www. youthhavenswfl.org or by following Youth Haven on Facebook. Robbie SpencerYouth Haven needs clothing for the children it shelters AS I MADE MY WAY BACK TO NAPLES ON I-75 a couple of days after Irma, the sheer number of fuel-tanker and power-truck convoys from Canada, Ohio, Virginia and dozens of other states even Hurricane Harvey-ravaged Texas pouring south was breathtaking What is most impressive is the general kindness of neighbors to other neighbors; stories of callousness are rare But beware! In the weeks of recovery and repair ahead, we will see some amazingly creative and convincing door-to-door rip-off artistry. I got several tons of trees cut and stacked for $550 from a local landscaper I saw working down the street, while an 80-year-old neighbor paid a guy with a chainsaw $3,000 to remove just one fallen tree. She had no idea what the range of prices could be. She doesnt have much money, and it hurts to see this. I recommend Angies List for future repairs. Unfortunately, lousy roofers, pool cleaners, pool cage repairers and cage taker awayers, etc., will rake in extreme profits from the elderly and from anyone who has no negotiating savvy at every opportunity. Ivan Seligman Divine intervention steers captains to GoodlandCHARLOTTE COUNTY CAPTAINS KYLE DAVIDson and Tom McLaughlin spent the week after Hurricane Irma collecting supplies to take to Summerland Key in the middle Keys, a favorite shing destination that was hard hit by the storm. We heard it was one of the areas where people had zero access to anything, said Capt. Davidson of Englewood. The road was down, and the only way to get supplies there was by boat. The men set out Saturday morning loaded up with 6,000 pounds of donated supplies but never reached their nal destination. After running into mechanical problems in the Everglades, they turned around and headed to the closest port: the sh house at Goodland, mere miles from Irmas landfall on Marco Island. Most of the supplies were collected on Boca Grande, where both captains are based. The island is also one of the homeports for the Eleven Mothership, which offers liveaboard shing and scuba adventures in the Keys, the Everglades and the Marquesas. The Eleven Experience also owns property on Lower Matecumbe Key, and the captains were eager to check it for damage. We take clients on shing trips out of the Keys and the Everglades, and both areas are very important to us, said Capt. Davidson. We researched what was needed in the Keys and people from all over Boca donated. One of our biggest donations was from Abels Marine. Supplies including tarps, roo ng nails, water, pet food, childrens toys and pet beds. We probably had 100 gallons of bleach for mold and sprayers to go with it, Capt. Davidson said. We had various and sundry food items and were able to get gardening equipment, packages of work gloves, rakes and saws. At Goodland, they found great need. People were saying it wasnt a big deal, but when Tom and I got off the boat and walked around, we saw it was a big deal, he said. There were piles of debris and ooding. About 15 miles off shore, we could smell raw sewage. The water was heavily polluted. The supplies were distributed throughout Goodland, Everglades City and Chokoloskee. Maybe it was divine intervention, Capt. Davidson said. The road to Summerland opened Monday, and Everglades City and Chokoloskee were in pretty bad shape.

BEHIND THE WHEELTips for getting back on the road after IrmaA major hurricane can leave you in limbo for weeks as an entire region tries to get its cars repaired at once. As we all attempt to restore some sense of normalcy to our lives, its good to understand how to get back on the road as soon as possible. Windshields are one of the most common replacements after a storm. Florida insurance statutes require that comprehensive policies waive their deductibles (the amount you pay) for windshield replacement. Thats good news for those who have paid extra for top coverage. But no matter the cost, in-demand replacement parts like windshields are often in short supply. This is the time to know what needs to be replaced. Where windshields are concerned, it might seem like a car is drivable because the laminated glass remains watertight. But watertight does not mean safe, as debris from the windshields inner layer can easily drop sharp shards onto everyone in the vehicle. Responsible drivers should treat any damage with dangerous connections (shattered glass, odor of fuel, electrical shorts, etc.) as a reason to keep the vehicle parked until it can be serviced. Non-threatening damage such as dents and fender dings are only dangerous to the owners ego. These and other cosmetic repairs can wait and will likely cost less if you wait until those who need more serious repairs are able to get them done. If there has been enough damage that the car is declared a total loss under the comprehensive policy, or if you think the repairs will cost more than the car is worth, then its time to replace the vehicle. These next few months are when buyers should be most alert when searching for a used car. After all, anything local has likely been through the same storm. Flood-damaged vehicles are only supposed to be re-sold under a salvage title. Lynne McChristian of the Insurance Information Institute advises that one of the easiest ways to confirm a salvage title is to look up a cars history through its vehicle identification number. The National Insurance Crime Bureau offers a free VIN check at www.ncib.org. Even with this system in place, beware of cars that have been dried out and/or repaired by individual owners. Waterlogged vehicles that were scrapped or not reported to insurance might not have their titles reclassified. There is no such thing as a little flood damage. If a car in a low-lying area had water over the hood, new and destructive pathways for the electrical system are likely to have resulted. These dont go away when the water does. Also, every piece of fabric, cushion and sound-deadening material in a car acts like a sponge. This can result in dangerous mold growing when water seeps into the interior. There are some early signs that can alert you when a water-damaged vehicle is being quickly sold. Some of these signs can easily be overlooked, so inspect closely for burned-out interior light bulbs, multiple electronic failures (radio, power windows, etc.), wet wire connections and/or a particularly rough-running idle. If its been a few weeks since the damage, those things might have been repaired/replaced, and you should check for moldy smells or excessive corrosion. A trusted mechanic can help you determine whether a vehicle will be problematic. But for the next few months, its best to just walk away from any late-model local car that just doesnt feel right no matter how good the deal seems. New cars are a bit of a safer bet. Many have been through the same storm, which creates the opportunity for some nick-n-dent sales. Plus, dealership purchases have better consumer protection laws. Because of this, most dealers are not looking to sell a new car that has been water damaged; reputable ones are smart enough to collect on their own insurance rather than risk a bad reputation for knowingly selling a lemon. Our cars are among our largest personal concerns after a major storm. And because we all know hurricanes are part of the price we pay for our slice of paradise, these tips are not only good to remember post-Irma, but also for whenever the next big storm comes our way. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

HEALTHY LIVINGSurviving the emotional aftermath of IrmaAs I write this, the sun mostly has been shining and Hurricane Irma has finished inflicting the last of her deadly wrath. However, many of us are still reeling and disoriented doing our best to regain our strength and spirit as we assess the damage Irma has left in her wake. First, and foremost, we know that there are far too many who have suffered unspeakable losses of loved ones, or their homes, during this storm. Our hearts go out to them for what they have endured, and will continue to endure. Even though so many of us have not gone through hurts of this magnitude, we still have been greatly impacted. We all have different stories. Some of us were fortunate, and were left unscathed. Others were dealt a traumatic blow, with harrowing experiences. Some of us were holed up in boarded homes, along with other families, feeling out of place or in the way. Others graciously opened their homes to others, in acts of true generosity. Those of us who were alone might have felt isolated and vulnerable, acutely aware we had no one to trust or to lean on. Many of us on the road were uncertain about what lay ahead, and what we were leaving behind. Some of us had power. Many did not.On the heels of HarveyJust days before Irma, most of us were heartbroken and horrified to learn of the devastation in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey. As concerned bystanders, many of us reached out to the Red Cross and Salvation Army in an effort to provide support and relief to Harveys victims. We had no idea that another potential disaster was looming in the Caribbean and the southeast United States one that would affect us first hand. At first, reports of Hurricane Irma might have seemed inconsequential. Most of us paid little attention. Suddenly, the reports became increasingly dire and we could no longer ignore the rumblings that Irma could become a storm of a magnitude we had never seen before. The devastating footage of the carnage in Houston left no doubt in our minds that we had to take the authorities warnings seriously and prepare, even though it was too early to know the path of the storm.What to do and when?For many of us, the unpredictability but clear inevitability of the storm, left us reeling and uncertain about how to proceed. Authorities urged us to evacuate, warning that this storm would cause potentially fatal destruction. Individuals and families faced excruciating choices. Is it safe to stay? Should we leave? How do we ensure the safety of those we leave behind? Can we afford to leave? Is it safe to be on the road? What about our beloved pets? Will our homes and livelihoods be irreparably harmed? Even the most stoic and confident of us began to doubt ourselves and our judgment, especially when families and friends authoritatively chastised us for our decisions and implored us to listen to their entreaties. Those of us who believed it best to leave faced sold-out or canceled airline flights or warnings that there could be gas shortages or standstill traffic on the roads. Those who chose to stay were tormented by increasingly more alarming news reports of a potential cataclysmic apocalypse.The best and the worstThe anxiety and fear became more palpable in the days leading up to Irmas landfall. Our children were feeling frightened, insecure and irritable, especially if they sensed we were struggling to hold it together. We saw people acting at their best and their worst as they frantically prepared their families and homes for the storm. There were stories of people on the verge of fisticuffs, grabbing the last case of water at Publix or cutting in lines at gas stations. And, of course, we saw the heartwarming show of decency and camaraderie as others deprived themselves to help those more in need. Panic can be catching. If the hysteria around us builds, so can ours. At times of stress our bodies produce extra cortisol, which can activate a flight-or-fight mechanism, usually giving us the extra strength to tackle emergencies. This mechanism can initially serve us well, helping us face immediate challenges. However, as we know, too much stress and anxiety, over time, can have serious negative effects on our physical and emotional well-being. A lot of us deviated from our regular diet, hygiene and exercise routines, eating junk food and drinking to excess. Although for some, this was initially a stress reliever and might have added a touch of levity, after awhile the cumulative effect of overeating and drinking might have left us feeling bloated with disgust. Many of us did not have the familiar creature comforts of our own beds and routines. Bored and edgy, we aimlessly waited for the storm to pass. It took a lot for many of us to maintain our cool. The stress of the effort left us feeling fatigued and disgruntled. Fear and anxiety can bring out the worst in our neighbors and the worst in us. Unfortunately, the very time when we needed our patience the most was also the very time we were most depleted and barely able to muster our best selves.In the aftermathBut how do we help ourselves in the aftermath of a storm as virulent as Irma? First, its important that we give ourselves as much space as we need to absorb the fact that we may have been through an experience much more traumatic than we realized. The after-shock of such an experience will be experienced very differently by each of us, largely depending on our unique emotional make-ups and the severity of what we went through. Some of us have had the previous resilience to face stressful challenges, while others typically have had more difficulty coping with life changes. We might find ourselves going through tense, unpredictable emotions. We might discover that we are physically exhausted, irritable, nervous and even tearful. Our moods might swing back and forth from a sense of wellbeing to one of vulnerability and dread. We might react atypically to other people or situations, or withdraw from previously enjoyed activities. We might have trouble getting back to our regular routines, continuing to linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com Even when life circumstances feel totally out of control, it is helpful to assume control of as many aspects of our lives as we can.

Even when life circumstances feel totally out of control, it is helpful to assume control of as many aspects of our lives as we can. This is a time to reach out to those who matter to us, showing and receiving concern and comfort. Understandably, some of those around us might not be emotionally available because of their own struggles. They might not show us their best side. Unless they are truly egregious, we should make allowances for others disappointing reactions and behaviors. Understandably, those who faced major damage to family stability, property and livelihoods face a long haul back to a new reality. They need sufficient time to mourn their losses and to process what theyve been through. Each day should become just a bit easier, with the goal of eventually restoring a comfortable lifestyle and easing back to previous routines. Many will have a difficult time regaining their bearings and sense of well-being, the enormity of what they went through having taken such a toll that they now struggle in their personal relationships or ability to resume work and daily life responsibilities. This might be an important time to reach out for the support offered by mental health professionals, social service agencies and/or support groups. Those who suffered severe property damage should not hesitate to reach out to government agencies for assistance.

Reptiles hate change, Ms. ONeil says. Pets who experience an evacuation, superstorm or other natural disaster may undergo behavior changes caused by stress, anxiety and fear. Its not unusual for pets in these situations to break housetraining, stop using the litter box, vocalize more than normal, hide or behave aggressively. They may pant, pace or lose weight. Stress increases cortisol and other chemicals that tell the body to switch into fight-or-flight mode, says veterinarian Kathryn Primm of Applebrook Animal Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn. Animals who are normally very bonded to their people can escape and be lost. One should never depend on the pet to act normally in an evacuation situation or upon returning home after a storm. Your response can determine how well your pet survives and thrives emotionally during and after a disaster. These tips will help you and your pets decompress and get back to normal. Whether youre in a hotel, a shelter or a friends home, try to set up a small space where your pet can feel secure, such as a crate or bathroom. Give the safe space a familiar scent and appearance with a favorite toy or an item of clothing youve worn. Reduce stress with interactive play such as games of fetch or batting at a fishing-pole toy. Keep mealtime, walks and other routines on their normal schedule as much as possible. Pets such as reptiles might need to adjust to a different climate. The ONeils, who evacuated to their daughters home in Atlanta, found the cooler weather there slowed down their reptiles, already slightly stressed from travel and confinement. Avoid showering pets with excessive amounts of attention, even if youve just been reunited with them. Extreme amounts of togetherness might trigger separation anxiety when things get back to normal. For pets who continue to have behavior issues after youve returned home or set up house in a new place, schedule a veterinary visit to rule out any physical problems that could be causing the change in behavior. If they get a clean bill of health, begin retraining as if the animal were a puppy or kitten to help them regain normal skills and behaviors.

So, believe me when I report that there was a storm of Cat 5 proportions in our master bathroom well before Irma made landfall. For future reference, when you fill your tub with water as a precautionary measure (as the all the hurricane manuals suggest), close your bathroom door, lest your 17-year-old kitty jumps on the rim and accidentally tumbles underwater. A freaked-out, confused and soaking wet cat was the final straw of what Im pretty sure was the longest week ever in Southwest Florida history. Since the Monday before Irma was Labor Day, my hurricane week commenced on Tuesday with a Weather Channel marathon. Ive lived in Southwest Florida since I was a kid and have seen my share of depressions (tropical and otherwise) and storms, including a few hurricanes that have brushed by or even made landfall too close for comfort. I was without power for two weeks after Hurricane Charley in 2004; I grew up listening to harrowing tales of Hurricane Donna from my elders. Im already anxious and phobic about heights, spiders, speed and even frogs. I never take an impending hurricane lightly and even as the east coast prepared for the brunt, something in my gut told me Irma was headed this way. The next couple of days were filled with warnings from family and friends up north. A dear concerned friend in Tennessee kept begging my husband, Todd, and me to come stay with her in Knoxville, promising a comfy air mattress and early fall weather. Built in 2007, our high-rise condo is totally up to code in construction standards, and our unit is 40 feet above sea level. What do you think is going to happen to us? I asked my fretting friend. Basically, I think your condo is going to snap in half due to microbursts, she answered calmly. What are microbursts? I shrieked. Theyre kind of like mini tornados inside the eye wall of the hurricane. Well then, can we just call them TORNADOES? I asked in exasperation. Call them what you want, she replied matter-of-factly. Just remember: They might snap your condo in half and you have a safe place to stay up here. As I researched microbursts, studied spaghetti models and tried to choose the local meteorologist I would commit to (it felt like online dating), I started getting a barrage of calls, texts, emails and Facebook messages. Everyone and I mean everyone came out of the woodwork. Far-flung second cousins from Maine, Texas, California and Ohio folks I hadnt seen since the 1976 family reunion were either praying for me, sending me good vibes or telling me I had a death wish for not evacuating. Two ex-boyfriends from the s reached out to express their regrets for their mistakes in our relationship and wished me well. As the weekend approached, I was a basket case. Todd kept reassuring me that we were in the safest place we could possibly be. Even though I wasnt convinced, I knew that the last place I wanted to meet up with Irma was while stuck in traffic on I-75. On Friday night before bed, I ominously told Todd: I just want to let the record show that I suggested that we leave for Tennessee three days ago. I passive-aggressively added, Sleep well. Our condo wasnt the only place where there was tension. Trying to find hurricane supplies as Irma churned toward us was like being in the midst of The Hunger Games. And even though I consider myself fairly tech-savvy, downloading the Zello app, which is supposed to keep folks in touch on their smart phones even when all the cell towers are ripped from the earth, proved frustrating (P.S.: It doesnt work). Our pantry laden with canned tuna and granola bars, we waited for hurricane day. Sunday was almost a relief, because regardless of the consequences, at least the event itself would be over. After I dried off the waterlogged cat, I watched local news, overanalyzing Irmas angry, red-rimmed eye on the radar from the edge of my seat. It turned out my gut was right. Fortunately, though, my Tennessee friend overestimated Irmas ability to snap a high-rise in half. When the tail of the eye passed over us somewhere between 6:45 and 7:15 Sunday evening, I hid in our laundry room with my iPad, a vodka cocktail and a pillow. Other than a shredded balcony ceiling fan, we were unscathed and we never lost power. Todd was right. The aftermath has been brutal for many across the state, but like my cat who tumbled into the tub, well survive. And its not lost on me that after the kitty took her dive, Irma was downgraded from a Cat 4 to a Cat 3. I like to think there was a feline shift in the universe when my old feline propelled herself out of that tub. Take that, Irma. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 BUSINESS A23Wintrip points out that quite often, people who give great interviews turn out to be bad hires. Its a sad truth that most employers and hiring managers have experienced being blindsided when an exciting candidate turns out to be a really disappointing employee, says Scott Wintrip, the author of High Velocity Hiring: How to Hire Top Talent in an Instant. When you find yourself wondering what went wrong, Mr. Wintrip says, It usually comes down to a few mistakes that you can easily remedy. He explains that even the most impressive rsum paints an incomplete picture of the candidates potential. So, unfortunately, relying too heavily on a rsum is no better than judging a book by its cover. Here are a few of Mr. Wintrips tips to help managers avoid making hires they regret later. Develop clear hiring criteria Your excitement about a candidates rsum can interfere with sound decision making. Mr. Wintrip explains that we can select the wrong people for the wrong reason when our feelings get in the way. To counter this tendency, develop clear hiring criteria complete with a detailed list of skills and personality traits that the right person will exemplify. Also be sure to list the undesired traits you need to avoid. Its important to remember that feelings are not facts, he asserts. Left unchecked, emotions easily become false evidence that candidates fit roles when they do not. Dont let an outstanding rsum blind you to the fact that the candidate is not right for the position youre hiring for. Always refer back to your hiring criteria when you think youve found the perfect match. This step checks your accuracy and ensures that you seek proof that the talent matches the job you need to fill. Pose written questions to accompany the rsum Rsums are a mere glimpse into someones experience, background and skills, providing an incomplete picture of the job candidate. Not to mention candidates want to put their best selves forward in a rsum, and often this includes incomplete details, exaggerations and sometimes outright lies. Asking candidates to submit written answers to several questions can help provide you with a clearer picture of who they are. What should you ask your job candidates? The best strategy is to pick key details from your hiring criteria and pose specific questions to gather those details. For example, for a sales position, you could ask: How do you sell? Be specific, but limit your response to two or three paragraphs. Only those candidates who follow your directions and whose answers match your criteria should move on to the next phase of your selection process. Seek more proof of fit through experiential interviews Conventional interviews dont really work because candidates are always on their best behavior. They say what you want to hear, share only the best parts of their backgrounds and make promises of how well they will perform on the job. Unfortunately, such promises dont always translate into quality work. Mr. Wintrip recommends experiential interviews as the answer to this problem. Instead of listening to a candidates promises, he says, seek truth. Focus your interviews around having candidates perform sample work that demonstrates the skills and experience noted on their rsum. This work should focus on key aspects of the job: Have salespeople demonstrate how they sell. Require computer programmers to write code. Set up a scenario where a customer service manager has to solve a real business problem. Watch carefully as they do the work, he says. Youll quickly see whether the candidate is a good fit or not. Ask candidates about their work failures; then listen carefully Even though everyone has failed at some point in their careers, Mr. Wintrip points out that some potential hires might be hesitant to share information about their failures during interviews. This is a red flag you should watch out for. When a candidate glosses over past failures, beware, he warns, adding this indicates they wont be a transparent employee or leader within the company. On the other hand, candidates who are honest, humble and able to share openly about past failures will positively contribute to your companys success. The failure question is a great way to identify the candidates who are willing to bring transparency to their role within your organization, he says.Take a closer lookAn impressive rsum doesnt always mean your candidate will perform as expected, and conventional interviews dont work the way managers wish they did, Mr. Wintrip concludes. To hire the best talent each time you interview, you need to take a closer look at your candidates, he says. Learn who they are, assess their performance and integrity and then rate them with your specific job criteria in mind. These extra steps will help you gain a clear view of every applicant, so you know exactly who is showing up for work on Monday morning ... and you wont be disappointed. Scott Wintrip, the founder of Wintrip Consulting Group, has changed how companies across the globe find job candidates and hire employees. For five consecutive years, Staffing Industry Analysts, a Crain Communications company, has awarded him a place on the Staffing 100, a list of the worlds 100 most influential staffing leaders.

Unlicensed contractors have taken to the streets in communities devastated by the storm and are preying on vulnerable residents. The Florida Home Builders Association urges everyone affected by Irma to be on the lookout for dishonest individuals posing as licensed contractors. Hurricane victims should be on alert for unlicensed contractors, especially door-to-door solicitors, who require large sums of money up front, said homebuilder Jeremy Stewart, FHBA president. Licensed contractors will show proof of insurance and licensure, their license can be verified with the state of Florida, and they will never ask for money up front, Mr. Steward added. Unlicensed contracting is illegal, and it can be easily avoided if the appropriate precautions are taken. FHBA, a member of the Disaster Contractors Network, encourages homeowners to follow these safety measures: Obtain at least three estimates from licensed and bonded contractors. Get the estimates in writing. Ask for and check reference. Ask for proof of insurance. Get a written contract. Make sure all work that requires city or county inspection is officially approved in writing before final payment is made. Homeowners are urged to verify a contractors license by contacting the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation at 850-487-1395 or www.myfloridalicense.com. To report unlicensed activity, call DBPR at 866-532-1440. To report price gouging, call 866-966-7226.

This is according to a new joint study on Millennial student loan debt released by the National Association of Realtors and American Student Assistance. The survey revealed student debt is also holding back Millennials from additional financial decisions and personal milestones, such as adequately saving for retirement, changing careers, continuing their education, marrying and having children. U.S. household are currently carrying $1.4 trillion of student debt. Only 20 percent of the Millennials who responded to the NAR/ASA study currently own a home, and their typical student debt load ($41,200) surpasses their annual income ($38,800). Most respondents (79 percent) borrowed money to finance their education at a four-year college, and slightly more than half (51 percent) are repaying a balance of more than $40,000. Among the 80 percent of survey respondents who said they do not own a home, 83 percent believe their student loan debt has affected their ability to buy. The median amount of time they expect to be delayed from buying a home is seven years; overall, 84 percent expect to postpone buying by at least three years. The tens of thousands of dollars many Millennials needed to borrow to earn a college degree have come at a financial and emotional cost thats influencing their housing choices and other major life decisions, said Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. Sales to first-time buyers have been underwhelming for several years now1, and this survey indicates student debt is a big part of the blame. Even a large majority of older Millennials and those with higher incomes say theyre being forced to delay homeownership because they cant save for a down payment and dont feel financially secure enough to buy. In addition to softer demand at the entry-level portion of the market, a quarter of current Millennial homeowners SEE MILLENNIALS, B14

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 REAL ESTATE B11ONE offers exclusive waterfront residences at a significant value for smart money-conscious buyers ONE, the new, 18-story, luxury condominium to rise in the Historic River District of Fort Myers, is truly ONE-of-a-kind. From its sophisticated design and resort-style amenities, to its status as the ONE-and-only luxury boutique condominium planned to rise on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River in the charming River District, the anticipated development is ONE-in-a-million. If all of that werent enough, ONEs pre-construction prices are up to 25% less than similar buildings in this very sought-after area on Floridas Gulf Coast, providing interested buyers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a luxurious, waterfront home in a thriving, tropical, urban paradise. With other area condominiums in Bonita Springs, Estero, and Naples going for as much as $1.17 million or more for a three-bedroom residence, ONEs pricing for the same size home is about $717,000, resulting in a tremendous value for those looking to live the waterfront lifestyle in a private, urban enclave that is still close to the best of the arts, dining, and entertainment, says ONE Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez. With just 28 beautiful waterfront homes, sales are moving along briskly and 40% of the residences are already reserved since the launch of sales just four months ago. Two-and three-bedroom homes ranging from 1,624 to 3,900 square feet, as well as two penthouses, are priced from the high $500,000s to over $2.7 million. We are extremely pleased with the response ONE has received in such a short period of time since we launched sales, says developer JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero. Caballero also reports that the prices at ONE will soon be increasing at least 8% to meet the skyrocketing costs of materials in a booming local construction market. For that reason, I would urge any interested buyers to take advantage of the pre-construction prices now. Designed by world-renowned architects Behar Font & Partners with interiors inspired by Adriana Hoyos Design Studio, ONE will be located at 2583 First Street. Estimated delivery is scheduled for the last quarter of 2018. Luxurious features at ONE include private entrance elevators, porcelain flooring, natural gas ranges, five-burner cooktop, double oven, quartz countertops in chef-inspired kitchens, and floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive balconies, and large walk-in wardrobes.

Millennial homeowners who cant afford to trade up because of their student debt end up staying put, which slows the turnover in the housing market and exacerbates the low supply levels and affordability pressures for those trying to buy their first home, Mr. Yun said. In addition to postponing a home purchase, the survey found that student debt is forcing Millennials to put aside several additional life choices and financial decisions that contribute to the economy and their overall happiness. Eighty-six percent have made sacrifices in their professional career, including taking a second job, remaining in a position in which they were unhappy or taking one outside their field. Furthermore, more than half say they are delayed in continuing their education and starting a family, and 41 percent would like to marry but are stalling because of their debt. Even more concerning, Mr. Yun said, is that it appears many Millennials are putting saving for retirement on the backburner because of their student debt. Sixty-one percent of respondents at times have not been able to make a contribution to their retirement, and nearly a third (32 percent) said they were at times able to contribute but with a reduced amount. Being unable to adequately save for retirement on top of not experiencing the wealth-building benefits of owning a home is an unfortunate situation that could have long-term consequences to the financial well-being of these Millennials, Mr. Yun said. A scenario where only those with minimal or no student debt can afford to buy a home and save for retirement is not an ideal situation and is one that weakens the economy and contributes to widening inequality. The financial pressures many Millennials with student debt are experiencing appear to somewhat come from not having a complete understanding of the expenses needed to pay for college. Only one in five borrowers indicated in the survey that they understood all of the costs, including tuition, fees and housing. Student debt is a reality for the majority of students attending colleges and universities across our country. We cannot allow educational debt to hold back whole generations from the financial milestones that underpin the American Dream, like home ownership, said Jean Eddy, president and CEO at ASA. The results of this study reinforce the need for solutions that both reduce education debt levels for future students and enable current borrowers to make that debt manageable, so they dont have to put the rest of their financial goals on hold. Real estate professionals are working with consumers and policy leaders to address the growing burden student debt is having on homeownership, NAR President William Brown of Alamo, Calif., said. We support efforts that promote education and simplify the student borrowing process, as well as underwriting measures that make it easier for homebuyers carrying student loan debt to qualify for a mortgage, Mr. Brown said. In April 2017, ASA distributed a 41-question survey co-written with NAR to 92,419 student loan borrowers (ages 22-35) who are current in repayment. A total of 2,203 borrowers completed the survey. All information is characteristic of April 2017, with the exception of income data, which is reflective of 2016.

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.

Isis in the City by EE Hunt. Xlibris. 365 pages. Hardcover, $29.99; trade paperback, $19.99.Let me say this up front: I am reviewing this book because of its interesting and timely premise, its well-imagined action and its fairly well-drawn characters. However, I am fully aware of its shortcomings: awkward sentence constructions, missing words, typos and a general lack of professional editing. I still think its worth the readers time. EE Hunt (I dont know which of his clerical and academic titles to use) takes readers into the very possible scenario of a small cadre of Islamic extremists planning something like a repeat performance of 9/11. One, named Nadir, seems to be a truly able leader; another, Assad, is a compulsive complainer and uncharacteristically tall. The remaining two, Amin and Khalid, are not sharply individualized until one of them is tapped to take on a particularly important role. We eavesdrop on their planning sessions and their attempts to keep a low profile in established Muslim neighborhoods. Mr. Hunt does a fine job of tracing their dayto-day business, their hopes and their fears. That is, he gets into their heads so that we sense the degree of their radicalization. We follow them as they carry out two missions of destruction. One is set at a theater in the Times Square area, where they attack the audience and anyone else in the vicinity, including law enforcement officers. They chose the right time for maximum chaos and are largely successful, even though their attack was anticipated. Mr. Hunt provides alternating chapters and sections of chapters. Those not focused on the terrorists focus on another team of four. This is the counterterrorist team that includes Lt. Sherry Williams, the courageous and shapely team leader; Ted, her husband-to-be and FBI agent; and Charles, CIA representative and love interest to the formidable Fatima, the Muslim voice of peaceful coexistence who hates the hijacking of her religion. The interactions of the couples and this tightly bonded foursome are carefully and credibly portrayed, especially as the time draws near for the major terrorist event. What could be more powerfully symbolic for the terrorists than destroying the National September 11 Memorial & Museum? What could be more disheartening for American patriots and especially security workers than such a catastrophe? With redundant and overly expository dialogue, Mr. Hunt reveals the terrorists plans, with Khalid now elevated to his special role that makes him the essential player at the scene. As with the theater scene, tension rises higher and higher as the time approaches and the task force of four strives to foil the terrorists. How does one obtain, hide and then put into place arms and explosives? Mr. Hunt gives us a pretty good idea of how this can be done. How does a group of terrorists stay under the radar while refining plans and putting them into operation? We witness a plausible case study. How can counterterrorist forces gain the upper hand? Read and find out. Mr. Hunt guides us confidently through relevant spots in Manhattan and Brooklyn, building scenes of the action with sufficient detail to gain authenticity. The section of Brooklyns Atlantic Avenue where the terrorists reside feels authoritative, as do their interactions with the neighborhood. Other settings are equally well drawn, though sometimes overdrawn. We find out where the counterterrorist team members live and work. We visit Central Park with Fatima and go on a tour around Manhattan with her and Charles. Theres even a visit to Sardis, the landmark Manhattan restaurant. Mr. Hunt, who lives in Naples, works to distinguish between the goal of reconciliation amongst the practitioners of all faiths and the reality of abominable actions taken in the name of religion. Actions that need to be stifled. About the authorEE Hunt is an Episcopal priest. He was rector of the Church of Epiphany in Manhattan, dean of St. Mathews Cathedral in Dallas and dean of the American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris for more than 10 years. Hunt has published seven previous books, one academic and six novels on turbulent times regarding terrorism and human trafficking. He graduated from Stanford University with two degrees; the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, with two degrees; and Princeton Theological Seminary, where he earned a doctorate.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYContinuum. So every single day I re-recorded my favorite record, Ms. Ell recalls. I was blown away by how much I learned about how John Mayer plays guitar, how I play guitar and how I love to hear a band in the studio recorded. Sometimes, says the Nashville resident, it can be distracting to live in such a music-rich city, with so many different talented artists and influences surrounding you. Through the process of recording and rerecording Mr. Mayers album, she says, she found the sound she wanted for her own album. I was able to take some of my favorite music and re-create it in my own voice, and that was the template of my favorite music recorded, how I would do it. Then Kristian laughed and said, Thats how I want you to do it with your own music. After that, she adds, I just clicked into gear It was like the minute I knew the sound, I knew what I wanted to say what kind of groove it was going to be. The experience opened doors for her artistically. She was so grateful, she even acknowledged John Mayer in her liner notes: Thanks for writing Continuum. The Project, debuted last month at No. 1 on the Nielsen Soundscan Current Country Albums chart. The Canadian Country Music Association recently nominated Ms. Ell for Female Artist of the Year. (The 28-yearold is originally from Calgary, Alberta.)A post-Irma treatMs. Ell, who is the opening act for Brad Paisleys current Weekend Warrior World Tour, performs with Brooke Eden as part of the fourth annual Island Hopper Fest on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at Pinchers at the Marina in Fort Myers. Tickets are $15. More than 85 performers and songwriters will present 159 performances at 24 venues during Island Hopper Fest Sept. 22-Oct. 1. The festival allows audiences to hear country hits in various intimate settings, as performed by the men and women who wrote them but who typically didnt record them. The festival is sponsored by the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau, iHeartMedia, Cat Country 107.1 and BMI (the nations largest music rights organization). I know of no better way to get back to normal after Hurricane Irma than by continuing on with our plans to hold the fourth annual Island Hopper Fest, says Francesca Donlan, VCB director of communications. Music is healing, and this is a perfect time to enjoy these talented artists and their restorative songs. Truly, its time to relax and listen to some music. After Irma, we all need a chance to enjoy our slice of paradise. Songwriters performing their own songs include Danny Myrick (who wrote Tim McGraws Truck, Yeah and Jason Aldeans Shes Country), Tim James (author of George Straits No. 1 single Give It All We Got Tonight and Darius Ruckers Southern Style), Even Stevens (who wrote Eddie Rabbits I Love a Rainy Night), Aaron Barker (who wrote Lonestars What About Now) and Natalie Hemby (who wrote White Liar, recorded by Miranda Lambert). Nashville performer and former contestant on The Voice RaeLynn is another festival headliner, performing Sunday, Oct. 1, at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina on Fort Myers Beach. Her hits include Love Triangle and God Made Girls, which was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.Diverse influencesEarlier in her career, Ms. Ell toured with musicians as diverse as Keith Urban to bluesman Buddy Guy. Her musical upbringing was equally as eclectic. As a girl, she tagged along with her father to bluegrass camps and workshops. It was where I learned how to play guitar, she says about following her father and his friends. I was the tiny little blonde girl with the massive guitar, playing fiddle tunes. It was what developed my love for music so much. Shania Twain was my favorite and Garth Brooks my idol, she adds. I knew every word to every song. When she was 15, Randy Bachman of the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive discovered her and became a mentor. He thought she sounded like a young female Chet Atkins. We got together for a couple songwriting sessions, and he said, Im your biggest fan. I want to help you however I can. He became like another dad to me He influenced me in such a huge way. He was the guy who got me into blues and jazz guitar and had me listen to different things, she says. It opened up my mind to a whole new world and a whole new vocabulary as a musician. She listened to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Derek Trucks, Jimi Hendrix, Robben Ford, Eric Clapton. Thats a good mix, she says. Her parents arent professional musicians, but everybody in my family plays an instrument. Her mother plays piano, her father plays anything with strings and her brother plays guitar. I grew up with (music) all around. For Ms. Ell, music is simply another way of expressing herself. When pushed to describe her genrebusting The Project album, she comes up with a mix of Sheryl Crow and John Mayer and Keith Urban and says its the first group of songs shes been able to record that truly represents her musical personality. She co-wrote 10 of the albums dozen tunes. How do songs come to her? Every songs different, she says. A song that I write on guitar is different than one I write on piano. I generally start with a guitar lick or some sort of music piece. Ill have a title and then it all spins out from there. She and Mr. Bush (who has performed at two previous Island Hoppers) cowrote one song, Wildfire, in the studio on the last day of tracking, 15 minutes before they recorded it. It was the last song Ms. Ell wrote for the album. It was just so exciting, she says. Ill never forget that day. Id heard Kristian talk about writing a song in the studio, but this was the first time I ever wrote on the tracking floor and then recorded it right away. As her career has taken off, Ms. Ell has performed a number of times at the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Its one of my favorite places to play, the Ryman, the original Opry downtown, she says. So many legends have walked on that stage before you and stood in the wooden circle. Its a lot of responsibility. When you walk up to that mike, youve got to step up to the plate. I love the Grand Ole Opry Its definitely a sacred space for me. She recently appeared on The Today Show, and she performed her hit, Waiting On You on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Late night is amazing, she says. I sure hope to do more. Also on her wish list: (Being interviewed by) Oprah would be awesome, as well as Ellen (Degeneres). Both of those would be amazing. It would be awesome to work with Keith (Urban) one day, and to play a stadium with (Kevin) Chesney. And of course, to play guitar with Mr. Mayer, the man who, unknowingly, through his own artistry, helped her find her voice.

Paid: $30 The Skinny: I had sworn off buying any more so-called Elegant Depressionera glassware. After all, the house is full and I have Ill ever want. Yeah, right. These vases originally would have been topped with a candleholder insert. In more than 20 years of collecting, Ive only seen a handful of complete ones. Heisey, an Ohio company, made the Ipswich pattern in the 1930s it was inspired by a 19th-century pattern called Comet and made by the Boston and Sandwich Glass Works. The quality is gorgeous, from the fire finish of the glass to the wheel-polishing the bases These are beautiful as vases, but sometimes, I like to fill them with water and float a lighted votive in them so the prisms sparkle in the light of the flame. THE FIND:A pair of Heisey Ipswich candle vasesIf there was one thing of which Hurricane Irma reminded us, it was of how much we rely on electricity. I thought about that as I stumbled about my Lake Worth house, dubbed The Humble Hovel, as a joke because so many of my Palm Beach County friends have given their abodes fun tropical check-ins on Facebook and other social media. After all, how does one compete with such monikers as The Grand Tropicale and Casa Serafina? But I digress. The winds had died down and the Fort Myers felines and their humans who had sought shelter from storm at my house had returned to the certain darkness of their own home across the state. All was quiet at The Hovel, except for the incessant hum of generators and the chatter of my neighbors none of whom grasps the concept of an inside voice. Well, they were outside after all, so... My mom stayed at my house there was no power at her house in Fort Myers and was reading by flashlight in the sweltering heat. So I lit a couple of candles. Their glow suffused the room with a comforting warmth, and the flames flickered just enough to show that we did indeed have the slightest of breezes passing through the open windows. I thought about the people who first had used that candleholder made in the 1930s by the Cambridge Glass Co. in its Everglade pattern. They almost certainly had come of age in a time of gasand candlelight, and they survived. Jupiter pioneer Carlin White, age 105 at the time, told me that anyone who could leave Florida for the summer did so because of the heat and the mosquitoes. Many stayed the pioneer families who tried to tame the wilderness of Florida were of tougher stock than I am. And what of folks like my greatgrandparents, who had returned to South Georgia in 1935 to cultivate the family farm? Granny and Granddaddy Griffin gave up a world of electricity and indoor plumbing to move into a three-room tenant house on the property. It didnt even have windows only shutters. That must have been hard to take, but they endured, probably with the help of a kerosene lamp that shone so brightly my grandparents and Aunt Cleo and Uncle Bob thought my great-grandparents had installed electricity just in time for their first visit to the farm. That would not happen for a couple more years. They survived, and so shall we. But, man, is it hot without air conditioning! SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYCandles lend a glow to my house, dubbed The Humble Hovel, in the days after Hurricane Irma.

YesSometimes heroes emerge from the unlikeliest, and least desirable, of places. Bostonian Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal) works in the Costco meat department. Hes a manchild of 28 years whos obsessed with the Red Sox and beer, but cant bring himself to commit to on-again, offagain girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Its April 15, 2013. Jeff attends the Boston Marathon to cheer for Erin at the finish line. Two bombs are detonated. He loses both legs from just above the knee. What follows, as chronicled in Stronger, is a heartfelt and nicely acted tale of a man who never wanted to be a role model, but nonetheless finds himself an inspiration to countless others. Its a responsibility he embraces reluctantly, and only after he matures enough to understand what he comes to represent. The crux of director David Gordon Greens (Snow Angels) film follows Jeffs transition from unthinkable hardship to self-pity to a symbol of hope. By the end he is the embodiment of the Boston Strong mantra that became commonplace following the attack. In fact, John Pollanos script is based on a book by the real Bauman and Bret Witter, and its a surprise to see just how candid the film is in depicting Baumans struggles. Its one thing for his apartment complex to inexplicably not have an elevator. Its another to see Jeff passed out in the shower covered in his own feces. Smartly, Green also exposes the effect Jeffs injury has on his friends and loved ones, especially Erin and his mother, Patty (Miranda Richardson). In one heart-wrenching scene, Erin and Patty get into an argument after Jeffs physical therapy session, and their pain feels both expected and real. Its not just that Jeff needs help, its also a question of the best way to provide dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com SEE STRONGER, C12

C12 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY that help. Erin, no doubt feeling guilty because Jeff was at the marathon to cheer her on, is more caring and catering, whereas his mother and others show the tough love Jeff expects. The byproduct of this is Jeff being hesitant to show weakness to his girl or his family which makes the situation even more difficult to bear. Gyllenhaal is fantastic here. We immediately like and sympathize with Jeff: We know he has flaws, but can tell from the start that hes a good, honest soul, and this purity is endearing. Reports suggest the real Bauman has a playful sense of humor exemplified in the film by Jeff writing Lt. Dan (think Forrest Gump) on a piece of paper after he wakes up in the hospital and that humor makes him more relatable. Credit also goes to Maslany, who more than holds her own opposite Gyllenhaal and adds valuable heart to the narrative. Stronger is a nice movie, but it tells an even better story. See it because Gyllenhaal is a wonderful actor who continues to impress in everything he does, and because its a reminder that heroes can come from the most unlikely, and unwanted, of places. LATEST FILMS >> Per imdb.com: Both Jeff Bauman and Jake Gyllenhaal threw out the ceremonial rst pitch at Fenway Park for the Marathon Monday Red Sox game on April 18, 2016. 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 snow-covered 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.

But in the end, the decision has to be made based on what is best for you and those you love. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Family problems are best worked out with all those concerned contributing suggestions that will ease tensions. Stay with it until a workable solution is found. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Expect to hear more about an offer that has piqued your interest. You earn respect for insisting on solid facts, not just a fancy talk about potential opportunities. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) What seemed to be a reasonable workplace request might need to be defended. Dont fret. You have both the facts and a surprise ally on your side. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A bit of capriciousness might be just what you need. Plan to kick up your heels in a round of fun and games with family and friends this weekend. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Although some of your plans might have to be put on hold, things do begin to take a turn for the better by midweek. Your financial crunch also eases. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your financial picture begins to brighten by weeks end. There also are favorable changes in your personal life. Someone you care for has good news to report. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone has some suggestions to offer regarding your new project. You might find them helpful. Remember to avoid speculation and to stick with just the facts, Lamb. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An old friend suddenly reappears. Whether this proves to be a boon or a bane in the Bovines life depends on the reason for this surprising reappearance. Be cautious.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might not like seeing so many on-the-job changes. But some of them could open new opportunities for the Moon Childs talents to shine to your best advantage. LEO (July 23 to August 22) An apparently solid-gold opportunity beckons the Lion. But check to see if all that dazzle isnt just a sprinkling of surface glitter. Check it out before making a commitment. BORN THIS WEEK: You seek balance, but not at the expense of justice. You would make a fine judge.

EAT FREE THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY O er expires 9/24/17. CONTRACT BRIDGEForewarned is forearmedBY STEVE BECKERBridge is a competitive game in which each side tries to outscore the other. In a great many deals, the two sides achieve par that is, they each obtain the best result the cards entitle them to obtain. In some deals, though, the outcome is uncertain and depends on how well or how poorly one side or the other bids or plays. For example, take this case where South got to five spades doubled as shown. Had West led the king of hearts, a lead most players would select, declarer would have made the contract easily. But Wests mind was clicking on all cylinders, and he decided to lead his singleton club. South won Easts jack with the ace and led the nine of spades at trick two. Continuing his inspired defense, West went right up with the ace and returned the three of heart. East took dummys eight with the nine and returned a club for West to ruff, and South went down one. Wests defense was certainly of the highest order, but South could and should have overcome it. Wests opening lead was clearly a singleton no other club holding could possibly justify it so declarer should have directed all his thoughts toward stopping the impending ruff. Since the ruff could occur only if East gained the lead for a club return, and since Easts only possible entry had to be in hearts, South should have tried to neutralize that entry. Accordingly, declarer should have won the opening club lead with dummys king and returned the king of diamonds at trick two, discarding the heart deuce after East followed low. West would have won the king with the ace, but with no way to put East on lead for the killing club ruff, he would have found himself a loser in the battle of wits.

POSTIRMA CUISINE Big-hearted restaurateurs demonstrate that food is loveWhile most of us were worrying about our homes, the mess in our yards, sweating it out without power and, in some cases, water, there were chefs and restaurateurs throughout Southwest Florida who understood they could help make it better with food. And they did. Perhaps the largest such effort is what Mercy Chefs and its team have been doing from the parking lot at Living Waters Church in Estero.Relying solely on donations, the faithbased, nonprofit disaster relief organization provides professionally prepared meals for victims, volunteers and first responders in national emergencies and natural disasters. The team rolled into Estero about midweek with their immense kitchens on wheels, armed with a serious amount of kitchen equipment, a full complement of commercial-sized herbs and spices and a ton of donated food.John Stout, based in Dallas, is the managing chef for the operation. He and his wife came straight from Hurricane Harvey relief to help at the post-Irma relief effort. We share the gospel of Jesus Christ and if youre hungry, we feed you, said Mr. Stout, dressed in his gray Mercy Chefs chef coat. Every meal served is donation based. We use high-quality proteins and other ingredients. Our goal is to serve restaurant-quality food. On Friday, Sept. 15, they served chicken, stuffing and vegetables for lunch, followed by Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, vegetables and brownies for dinner. In addition to the five Mercy Chefs professional chefs who came with the team, local chefs and restaurant workers pitched in to help prepare the 9,000 meals a day they would serve at the site and send out in trucks to Immokalee, Lakeland, Lehigh Acres, Everglades City and other areas in need of sustenance. Dozens of other locals men, women and children showed up every day to help out as well. And theyre still showing up. Chefs Brian Roland, owner of Crave Culinaire and Venue Naples; Richard Howze and David Rashty of Table and Tap Restaurant at Babcock Ranch, which straddles the Lee-Charlotte county line; Asif Syed, of 21 Spices by Chef Asif in Naples; and celebrity chef Derrick Fox, who lives in Los Angeles but is originally from the area; were all out there volunteering their time to assemble and cook the meals. With Mr. Roland were his wife, Nicole, her father, other relatives and about two dozen of his employees, all busily forming Salisbury steak patties in the relentless heat with just a canopy for shade.We wanted to be able to give back, said Ms. Roland. We dont have power at home or at the Venue, but we have hands to help. Once we have power at the Venue, we can use that to help even more.As soon as power was restored at Venue Naples the following day, the Crave Culinaire team started preparing meals to go and was donating proceeds from the sales to Mercy Chefs and the Community Foundation of Collier County.Mr. Fox said he felt helpless in Los Angeles watching what was happening to his hometown. So I hopped a redeye to get here Monday night and Ive been helping pull shutters, cut trees and help anyone else who needed it. At the Mercy Chefs operation, he was doing what he does best: cooking. Gary LeBlanc, founder of Mercy Chefs, was on hand to help oversee the operation.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C19 pens when you share a meal, he said. You do it with family and friends all the time. When you come to a place like Collier and Lee counties and share it with folks who have lost so much, its a real honor.More food for reliefOperation BBQ Relief, a nonprofit based in Missouri, also quickly mobilized and set up operations at Germain Arena, serving barbecue to area people who needed food and even airlifting meals to the hard-hit Keys. As of Monday, this team had serve 63,400 meals in five days. There have been countless more modest but still meaningful efforts around the region. Take the case of Misto Bar & Grill in Cape Coral, which never lost power and so was open Monday night, Sept. 11, just hours after Irma passed. I decided I should open, said chef/ owner Jorge Lanese, when he determined he had both power and food. He rounded up what staff was still in town and drafted a few others to help, including one servers mother, and dinner was on. Storm-weary diners wandered in throughout the evening for muchneeded air-conditioning, cocktails and dinner that no doubt was as satisfying as any meal theyd ever had. In Fort Myers, Mark Lukasiks Bagel Factory didnt have electricity but it had a generator so he geared up to open Tuesday. The bakers came in at 2 a.m., he said, and I was riding shotgun on the generator to make sure no one tried to take it. At 6 a.m. Tuesday, the shop on College Parkway in Fort Myers opened with hundreds of bagels and an even more treasured food group: hot coffee. The line snaked out the door and into the parking lot. No one complained. Potential customers knew their wait would be rewarded by a fresh bagel and a large coffee. By Tuesday, Betsy Barnhill, a lifelong Floridian, was ready to do her part at her 60-year-old institution, the Farmers Market, on Edison Avenue in Fort Myers. Id planned before the storm and bought a bunch of food and put it in the freezer knowing it would hold until Monday or Tuesday, she said. We didnt have power, but we had the big smoker so we set that up and announced we would open and serve on Tuesday until the food ran out. The kitchen staff cooked ribs, chicken, wings, chicken breasts, mac and cheese (frozen before the storm), broccoli salad, collards and baked beans. They quickly served 400 meals at $10 each. People were very grateful, Ms. Barnhill said. Everybody was so nice. Four of my friends came and volunteered to help. The other bonus was that she was able to pay her 35 employees many of whom live in areas that were flooded in cash so they could start getting their lives back in order. When power was restored to the Farmers Market on Wednesday after the storm, Ms. Barnhill opened for breakfast, serving eggs, bacon and whatever they still had. The effort had yet another benefit: It kept her mind off the giant mahogany tree that fell onto her house. On Wednesday, Will Prather knew it was time to cook the food in the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre freezer or it would go bad. We hadnt opened the freezer since Sunday and we froze everything we could, he said. Wed just launched a new menu and we had a lot of food. So I told the chef to prepare anywhere from 300 to 500 meals and wed get the word out. We still had no power, but we had gas and were able to power up enough light and a few appliances with a 55-watt generator. The staff conjured up 400 dinners and the Fort Myers theater gave them all away to friends, family and some outof-state utility workers they found at Publix. When they found themselves left with 500 pounds of food, they donated that to Community Cooperative, which helps feed those who need assistance. Despite the fact that his own home had no power, Mr. Prather wasnt done. With the Broadway Palms giant icemakers, they produced 2,000 pounds of ice and distributed it to anyone who needed it, at a time when ice was scarce in most stores. They sent another 2,000 pounds out the next day via a church whose members showed up with 40 coolers to transport it to a community in need. And Friday night, when the theaters new show, Groovin opened, Mr. Prather had some cancellations so he provided a buffet dinner to another 100 to 150 people. He was planning to continue that practice through the weekend. Heres what some other establishments have been doing as well to feed the hungry and emergency responders: On Thursday, Sept. 21, 21 Spices by Chef Asif in Naples will offer an authentic Indian luncheon to honor first responders and national Guard personnel. It will take place from noon to 1 p.m. and is free to all emergency personnel. While Old Naples was hard hit by the storm, some of the neighborhoods restaurants managed to get up and running by midweek. When they did, they opened their doors to welcome their neighbors. The Continental and Campiello both offered familystyle dinners on Thursday for anyone who wanted them. Campiello served penne with sausage, marinara and bread. The Continental offered meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Grateful diner Sterling Sigmond said on The Continentals Facebook page: This was perfect! We were able to get our entire family (mother, sister, brother, cousins, children) together to enjoy a meal. Thank you very much. 7th Avenue Social threw a community breakfast on Sunday, serving eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage and toast to anyone who needed a meal. The only request was that those who could bring water to share. Sushi Thai Too offered free sushi to hurricane victims in Naples Park on Saturday and in Bonita Springs on Sunday. At Cru in Bell Tower Shops in south Fort Myers, chef/owner Bob Boye has been feeding first responders of all types. If youre here helping to clean up, you are on my tab, he said. Everything but the alcohol is on me. Cru has scaled back its menu for now, providing more comfort fare and fewer avant garde dishes, but its free to relief workers and Mr. Boye hopes the family-friendly menu will make people who dont normally come in feel comfortable enough to try the ground beef tacos, chicken fingers, collards, simple steaks and seafood. Were not worrying about what kind of restaurant Cru is, he said. Lets get some food for people, get people fed and comfortable so they arent thinking about whats going on at home for a few minutes.

4 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY WILFREDO EMANUELIf you spend any time with interior designer Wilfredo Emanuel of Clive Daniel Home, youll quickly realize he was destined for this career. Unafraid of color, texture and light, he makes homeowners appreciate bringing him aboard. Michael Korb chats with the designer about his craft. Q: Is there a moment you can look back on that was the moment you decided you wanted to be an interior designer? A: When I was a kid, I always liked to play with my sisters Barbie camp house Id do the decor for all the Barbie events. Then after a lot of changes in my concentration at college, I discovered architecture and interior design as a profession and here we are. Ive never done anything different in my life since 1989 when I graduated as an interior designer in Puerto Rico. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: I studied interior design in Puerto Rico and then moved to Italy as a student to study abroad. I stayed there for seven years before moving to the Dominican Republic for a network television show. And then here to the United States, where I think I will stay for a long time. I also have a bachelors of fine art interior design from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Orlando. Q: Do you have a formula for how you build out a room? A: When Im in the creative process, I always start with the bigger pieces of the room, then move to the medium pieces and then the small and accent pieces, all the while creating layers of harmony. Q: Do you ask clients to bring anything with them to your first meeting? A: Oh, yes. Its very important for me to tell the customer to bring pictures, drawings, colors, etc., and anything else that speaks to them. From there, together we create an open and honest communication that continues until the project is completed. Q: Is there a trend that you want to see disappear ASAP? A: I can think of one word: Tuscany.

6 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSome people might consider Mark Felix a visionary for opening a modern furniture store in the heart of Naples six years ago. Though its difficult to remember that far back, we were just barely out of the Tuscan years and only ankle deep in the coastal transitional movement. Modern was often confused with Scandinavian back then. The Ohio native moved to Naples in 2000 and worked in marketing before realizing his dream of opening a retail contemporary furniture store, J Mark Modern Home. I took a look around and at that time (2011), no modern furniture stores were in Naples, says Mr. Felix. In what was surely a very big risk, he went off to Highpoint, N.C., and purchased items that he thought would be appropriate for the changing market. Though the store has certainly evolved a great deal since that time, continued growth shows that hes been on the right path since day one. The 6,000-square-foot space on Tamiami Trail North in the Sherwin Williams Plaza (across from Park Shore Plaza) is fairly unique to the local furniture store market in that much of what you see is available for immediate purchase and can be delivered the next day (custom pieces can also be ordered, of course). Its a convenience many customers appreciate.SHOP TALKJ Mark Modern Home brought the future to Naples first TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Mark Felix, left, has made J Mark Modern Home a must for anyone looking to add a touch of modern to their living environs. The 6,000-square-foot showroom has everything from furniture to art and accessories. 791 10th Street S. | Suite 202 | Naples, FL 34102 239.352.6400 | RMCRIntl.com FEATURED

So I may order 10 glass dining tables because I know how quickly theyre going to go. The welcoming space is set up in small vignettes, so that customers can browse various living room or bedroom or dining room options and configurations. And the store features a large amount of rugs, accessories, dcor, barstools and artwork for one-stop shopping. What you get is a high-end esthetic with a very moderate or affordable price point. You get the look for a much more approachable price, says Mr. Felix, adding much of the furniture comes from the same factories that produce some of the highest-level brands in the world. In addition to Italian and European suppliers, he works with numerous American brands and also with some innovative and fashion-forward Canadian manufacturers, such as Mobital. J Mark also features a significant amount of convertible furnishings, perfect for condos. Theres also a great selection of motorized reclining sofas. But the store might best be known for its amazing inventory of expandable dining tables, also perfect for condo living. Open them for entertaining and close them for everyday use. And if youre unsure of what might work best in your space, in-house designers can offer advice and expertise. And not only that, Mr. Felix is in the store himself every day. Thats not only dedication its truly living the dream.

8 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen Charlotte Horvath of Soco Interiors got the call to handle the interior design duties for Stock Developments Atherton model in Quail West, she took a look at the architectural plans and got to work creating a contemporary coastal design worthy of the neighborhood. Its very fresh and clean, says Ms. Horvath. But whats really great about it is how livable it is. Its elegantly simple. Much of that vibe can be traced to the chosen color palette: whites, neutrals, blues, dusty grays, etc., that make the 4,554-square-foot, four-bedroom estate feel bright and airy. Including the expansive outdoor living area and two two-car garages, the residence has almost 7,000 total square feet. In addition, Ms. Horvath incorporated a great mix of finishes into the home. Everything from glass and acrylic to metals and stone makes an appearance yet nothing is overdone. When you have a large open space, choosing the proper flooring literally grounds the rest of the dcor. Ms. Horvath chose a wide-plank light rustic oak throughout (with the exception of the foyer, wine room, fitness room and four full plus two half baths, which got marble or porcelain finishes). It brings another warm, clean element into the house, Ms. Horvath says about the oak flooring. From the entrance, the expansive great room impresses with a fireplace and walls of glass that retract to provide direct access to the pool and outdoor living areas, including a full kitchen and sitaround bar. I would have to say that my favorite room in the house would probably be the kitchen, the designer says. I love, love, love white kit chens. They look so clean. And I love the simplicity of the silver pendant lights (a pair hangs over each of two islands, see cover Transitional flair and unique detailing combine in a Quail West-worthy modelSmart structural detailing and strong neutral tones make this model by Stock Development in Quail West a standout. Charlotte Horvath of Soco Interiors designed the home around the patterned dining room chairs, middle, and carrried that color scheme into the spacious master bath, above.COVER STORYCOURTESY PHOTOSElegantly Simple S ldilid lkhidlbSkDliQilW
photo). And the glass mosaic backsplash adds a bit of glitz to the space. I thought it turned out beautiful. Its tough to argue. The glacier white quartz surfaces gleam against the Wolf/ Sub-Zero appliances, and the acrylic and gray leather stools are a perfect compliment to the warm wood flooring. The walk-in pantry has frosted glass panels that maintain an organic tone. Between the kitchen and foyer, a glass-encased wine room does a wonderful job of displaying not only a wine collection, but also artwork that gives the space a more lively demeanor. Another notable space is the fitness room just off the pool area. For maintenance reasons, Ms. Horvath switched from real oak to a wood-look porcelain tile here but kept a light, airy tone. I wanted to stage it as a yoga/barre room because those kinds of fitness classes are all the rage now, she says. I brought in two bar cabinets for water or, because theyre pretty stable, you could house your weights in there. Then we added a built-in bench across from the mirrors, and again, there are cubbies underneath for additional storage. And while the patterned drapes and knit floor pillows garner plenty of attention, the real star of the fitness room is a coral-inspired light fixture that adds to the organic atmosphere while also delivering a certain funk. That room is a little set off from the others, Ms. Horvath says. When you walk into it, its funky. But she didnt stop there with the appreciable detailing. Through double French doors, the study has a built-in bookcase with a partners desk, grasscloth insets and colored wall discs, as well as a faux metallic hide rug under a contemporary chandelier. It makes working from home hardly a chore. In the formal dining room, marblepatterened fabric, the designers inspiration for the entire interior decor), covers the chairs, and wave-like paneling draws interest above a custom buffet and behind a starburst mirror. Meanwhile, the master suite has hisand-hers closets, a floating tub, his-andhers vanities and a private water closet. All three guest suites are on the opposite side of the home for the ultimate in privacy. The perfect melding of contemporary coastal design and livability, the Atherton is priced at $3,266,980, fully furnished.

10 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYHLEVEL ARCHITECTURE / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe number of aging condominiums in the Sunshine State can be overwhelming, but concrete block ranch homes give them a run for the money as far as shear volume goes. The low-slung buildings were a staple of South Florida in the 1950s and s. As w onderfully retro as they are, however, theyre absolutely awful to live in. Thats why the owner of this original 1,916-square-foot, three-bedroom, 2-bath property had to make some changes. A quick perusal of these images would lead you to think there is virtually nothing left of the original structure, but thanks to the team at HLevel Architecture, almost all of the house was saved. Part of that is due to the fact that the owner wasnt looking to spend a ton of money on the renovation, but also because he wanted the work done in just six months so his family could gather there for an upcoming holiday. His main goal was to give the place a fresh, modern vibe, says HLevels Brandt Henning, AIA, NCARB, LEED, AP. Hes big into modern architecture with a touch of mid-century. Also in the plan: the addition of a second story for a master suite. And more light throughout the entire interior. Mr. Henning and his team took advantage of the necessity for a stairway leading to the new master suite and created a linear cupola that slices through the house. It features clerestory windows to add light into the main living space, even though ceilings werent raised in that space. The master suite added 520 square feet to the home, and the upstairs deck is another 130 square feet. The entry tower/ linear cupola is an additional 200 square feet. We also raised the main porch roof out back, says Mr. Henning. It gives the illusion of another two-story space, without actually adding a two-story space. That porch is probably another 250 square feet. Without question, the dominant exterior aesthetic is the exposed cypress wood used throughout. Surprisingly, it is used as a true structural component, rather than just cladding. A rarity. The roof structure is all 3-by-14-inch cypress beams throughout, Mr. Henning adds. Another powerful detail is the cypress planter framing the pool deck access sliders. It has actual grasses growing at the second-story level, making for interesting views from the master out as well as from poolside up. Its just one more dynamic element that helped turn this once-forgettable house into a memorable gem. Makes you want to go out and buy a vintage ranch, doesnt it? HLevel Architecture 1110 Pine Ridge Road 384-6083 www.hlevel.infoOut with the ranch, in with the modernHLevel Architecture turns aging home into a contemporary classicOnward and upward might be the best way to describe how HLevel Architecture took this low, aging ranch and made it a stunner. The home was slashed across its middle to accommodate stairs leading to a new, second-floor master suite. Though ceiling height remained the same in the original main floor areas, the stairs and foyer now wash those spaces in light. MAKEOVER Before Before BeforeBefore
