C1 Reality check: Chiefs social media game is stronger than yoursSometimes a little bit of levity can go a long way. Especially in the face of a storm the likes of which Southwest Florida has not seen in decades. The vast majority of Collier County and the extended region were without power for at least a couple of days, and some for far longer, thanks to Hurricane Irma. I ended up sleeping and living in my office for seven days and nights, said Chief Stephanie Spell of the Collier County Sheriffs Office. A 30-year veteran at CCSO, Chief Spell has had a far-reaching impact as a member of Sheriff Kevin Rambosks executive command staff; she also provides leadership for several law enforcement bureaus. Her latest untapped skill, apparently, is social media savant. SEE GAME, A10 COURTESY IMAGEThe Collier County Sheriffs Office cheekily celebrated the departure of Hurricane Irma with a cake.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYThe American wayMore than weve ever imagined, the United States is the nation of free speech and equal rights under the law. This is a good time for us Americans, therefore. And its going to get better for our children. Heres why. We can look and act like embattled aliens, embrace goofball leaders or personally celebrate eccentric beliefs at no cost to ourselves, no matter whos in the White House. The gravity of that opportunity grows more powerful with time, whatever the national mood might be. That means freedom and strength for future Americans. We can shout out, spit out or even kneel out our views of anything or anyone else without being ostracized, fired, jailed, beat up or killed. Usually. A woman even called me a total idiot in a letter last week and got away with it. Can you believe that? But sharp fights still erupt like hot plasma from the gaseous surfaces of our democratic experiment, and theyre unsettling to many who dont know how much worse it used to be. They do us an important service: They help define the limits of our freedoms. Can you protest by carrying a weapon and Nazi flag on a college-town street and expect not to be fired? Can you protest by kneeling during the national anthem at a professional football game and expect not to be fired? Are those two actions merely free-speech expressions of similar weight? For a significant portion of our history such questions could not be universally voiced. Freedom of speech Americanstyle was a shape shifter a welcoming embrace for in-country white males, mostly, that became a stern stiff-arm for Indians, blacks, women and Asians. We complain now about our contentious inability to get along, but the complaint is relatively hollow; when we got along before (if we got along before) we werent we. We were some of us, or them. Our greatest strength, then and now, has always been the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I think of this both personally and as an American: We can never be disconnected from our histories. We can only do things differently, if we choose. So in my mind, the 1880s became an American crossroads that continues to shape our direction. Heres how. When my mothers father, a Colorado cattleman, was born in Missouri on Dec. 19, 1884, Sitting Bull was 53 years old. That was only a single century after the Revolutionary War. The most famous chief of the Plains Sioux, he had led them into battle against Army cavalry at the Little Bighorn, in Montana, only eight years earlier. Sitting Bull aimed to preserve the Siouxs traditional hunting ranges and thus their way of life, which stretched across the vast northern migratory routes of the American bison. Thats what he said, at any rate, before bringing his people into Canada in the 1880s for four years there were still some buffalo there then, facing starvation, bringing them back into the United States, where he suffered imprisonment and death. A captive, Sitting Bull was shot by the Indian Police during an Indian protest against American treatment of Indians at Standing Rock, S.D., on Dec. 15, 1890. Hed endured 59 hard years on the American planet, and by then my grandfather, Walter, was four days shy of 6. But before Sitting Bulls death, only about six months after my grandfather was born on June 17, 1885 the Statue of Liberty arrived on a French vessel in New York Harbor, in 214 crates. Over the next 30 years or so, almost 17 million immigrants steamed into the Port of New York past that newly erected statue, without freedom of speech or equal rights under the law. Between 1870 and 1920, some 26 million immigrants arrived from east and west, demographers say. They were mostly or completely voiceless. Meanwhile, in 1882, only two years before my grandfather was born, officials and scholars began to keep records of lynchings in the United States those happy occasions when self-righteous white people gathered to hang other people by the neck from trees. Between 1882 and 1968, 4,743 lynchings were recorded in the United States. About 75 percent of the victims were black. Most occurred in the South, according to records maintained by the Tuskegee Institute and others. Many other lynchings or shootings both before and during that period were probably not recorded, historians say. Right through World War I and the roaring 0s, right through the Great Depression and World War II, the country was so deeply divided that our contemporary notions of normal conversation, disagreement, protest or even comfortable living for all were almost non-existent. And so was the chance to participate in both the glories and the sometimes-terrible costs of this extraordinary American adventure. One of my uncles, Billy MacPherson, lasted about 30 minutes on the beach at Tarawa in the assault of the Second Marine Division against the Japanese, between Nov. 20 and Nov. 23, 1943. Of all the men around my uncle many of them killed next to him both before and after he was shot through the stomach not one was black. The United States military was deeply segregated. Were beyond that now. And as for the Nazi exhibitionists and the kneeling football players? Theres no comparison. People marching with guns and swastikas through college towns are shouting fire in a theater. People kneeling to protest racist cops during the singing of the National Anthem are First Amendment champions, whether you like their protest or not. Thats the American way.

It was, more accurately, a nightmare. It made landfall with 130 mph winds, heavy rains, and storm surges that threatened life and limb. On waking, we found its indelible tattoo on everything its fury touched though its mark was not always visible to the naked eye. It inflicted emotional wounds not yet seen but as time passes, they will be. Once we exhaled Irma, we inhaled relief. The rhythm of life began a slow return, though its beat was irrevocably changed. It went from a predictable cadence to a head-throbbing staccato. The whole business of getting back on ones feet became a one-act play. It is being re-written millions of times by people who have an Irma story to tell. And almost all Floridians do. After the anxiety-ridden encounter, the sun came out. The sky turned blue. A slight breeze stirred tattered palms. But we were still embedded in the storms aftermath. The urgency of getting electricity back on and starting cleanup took priority. It was a frantic yet liberating mission when all about chaos reigned. Erasing evidence of Irmas destruction is a paramount task. The time it will take is unfathomable weeks, months, decades, maybe never. The scale of loss and ruin is daunting. Hurricanes have two storm surges: There is the unstoppable, watery one. It announces a hurricanes terrors have fully arrived, drowning and destroying everything in its path. Then there is the one that comes after of staggering consequences fully born. Irmas damage in Florida is estimated in a range of $50 billion to $100 billion. But it isnt the whole story. Lives and landscapes are irrevocably altered. The future flounders under the weight of the massive uncertainties left in Irmas wake. Tens of thousands of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. Many still are without electrical power. Lives were lost. That Irmas survivors soldier on is a triumph of resilience over surrender. Recovery efforts began, but damages are still escalating. The Caribbean, already devastated, has been dealt another murderous blow, and though the amount of rain produced in Florida by Irma pales in comparison to the totals Hurricane Harvey dumped in Texas and Louisiana, the deluge, along with its complement of storm surge, produced massive flooding in the Sunshine State. Rivers and streams ballooned with runoff. Many crested at flood stage heights exceeding their historic levels. The St. Johns River topped its banks and swamped a large swath of Jacksonville. St. Augustine took a beating, too. At last report, the Withlacoochee River, north of Tampa, was on the rise and expected to flood thousands of homes. And, not to put too fine a point on the states litany of Irmas woes, as Florida drains the upper watershed of its runoff into Lake Okeechobee, the Army Corp of Engineers is pumping water into the lake from overflowing canals. It is releasing about 1.3 to 2.6 billion gallons per day of the nasty stuff into the St. Lucie River. The discharges will annihilate aquatic life, sea grass and coastal estuaries. It is a devils choice, a manmade environmental disaster, to protect the communities south of the lake from catastrophic flooding. The full costs of Irma to the Florida will take a long time to tally. Some costs will never be fully calculated. Paydays are lost. Lives are devastated. Ecosystems are destroyed. and cultural bonds are torn apart. The post-hurricane challenges for Florida, after Irma, and for Texas and Louisiana, after Hurricane Harvey, are daunting. One of the most worrisome is that people whose homes were flooded lacked flood insurance. Maybe they decided it wasnt worth it or assumed home insurance policies were inclusive of flood insurance. Either way, they are up the creek and snake-bit. To get coverage for flooding, you must buy separate coverage from the government-run National Flood Insurance Program. Most people havent. Thats very bad news. It affects tens of thousands of families whose homes suffered flood damage from Irma and Harvey. According to Vox News, the Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates that, in Florida, less than half of the roughly 2.5 million homes in flood hazard zones are covered by flood insurance. Texas is worse. According to The Washington Post, just 17 percent of homeowners in the eight counties most directly affected by Harvey had flood insurance policies. Without flood insurance, homeowners are dependent on their own resources, charitable donations and FEMA government grants for repairing or rebuilding their flood-damaged homes. Without flood insurance to subsidize the cost of recovery, communities and families that bore the brunt of the hurricanes cannot resurrect the places and neighborhoods called home. Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy are cautionary tales about how hard it is to navigate the bureaucratic mazes for aid and assistance from the FEMA, the state and private charities. It is a long and arduous slog. Irma is not over. It has only just begun.

The Hulu series The Handmaids Tale just won eight Emmys, a sweep fueled, in part, by the widely accepted belief in liberal America that the show tells us something about the Trump era. Based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, the series depicts a misogynist dystopia. Christian fundamentalists have established a theocracy that after an environmental debacle craters the birth rate forces fertile women, called handmaids, into sexual slavery. Set in contemporary America, the show combines the atmosphere of The Scarlet Letter with 984. It is bleak, plodding, heavy-handed and occasionally gripping. What has given it extra oomph is the trope that it is relevant to Trumps America. This is a staple of the commentary, and everyone involved in the shows production pushes the notion. The series is indeed highly relevant as a statement on the fevered mind of progressives. The president doesnt want to impose his traditional sexual morality because, for starters, he doesnt have any to impose. His critics are mistaking a thricemarried real estate mogul who has done cameos in Playboy videos with Cotton Mather. He isnt censorious; hes boorish. I thought this could be a great cautionary tale, director Reed Morano says of the show. We dont think about how women are treated in other countries as much as we should, and I guess I thought this would raise awareness. Fair enough. The Handmaids Tale does have something to tell us about, say, Saudi Arabia. But, in an uncomfortable fact for Christian-fearing feminists, none of the worlds women-hating theocracies are Christian. Elisabeth Moss, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of handmaid Offred, warns of things happening with womens reproductive rights in our own country that make me feel like this book is bleeding over into reality. What this means is that Republicans want to defund the nations largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, and roll back Obamacares contraception mandate. If they succeed, this would mean less government intervention in matters of sexual morality, rather than more. The progressive mind is unable to process that it has won the culture war in a rout (except for abortion, where conservatives are trying to chip away at our extremely liberal laws at the margins). We live in a country where Christian bakers get harried by government for politely declining to bake cakes for gay weddings, yet progressives still believe we are a few steps away from enslaving women. According to Atwood: If youre going to get women back into the home, which some people still firmly believe is where they belong, how would you do that? All you have to do is remove the rights and freedoms that (women) have fought for and accumulated over the (past) 200 years. Yeah, thats all you have to do. Atwood doesnt explain who, straw men aside, actually wants to do this, or how theyd go about it. She wrote a book that, despite her intentions, has become a cautionary tale about how sophisticated people lose their minds.

In addition to a superb team of first responders, smart infrastructure and advance planning, the answer, in part, is preserving natural systems. The extensive mangrove forests of Southwest Florida were essential in protecting portions of the coast from more extensive storm damage by holding back water and absorbing the sheer force of the wind and surge of the ocean. In addition, wetlands, when healthy and intact, can store up to 1.5 million gallons of water per acre. Not only do wetlands store water, but equally important is that they treat water by cleaning it before it flows into other bodies of water. So, in the midst of the post-Irma recovery, the news that the Lee County Board of County Commissioners are finalizing a deal for the purchase of Edison Farms is great news for all of us. The public acquisition of the almost 4,000 acres of primarily wetlands that comprise Edison Farms is a historic milestone in efforts to preserve the remaining core ecological assets in our region; assets that are necessary not just for nature and its inhabitants, such as the endangered Florida Panther, woodstorks and other magnificent wading birds, but for people and our quality of life. Southwest Floridas rapidly increasing development and conversion of natural lands to hard surfaces has come at a price including contributing to extensive flooding in local communities. By investing $42.3 million of available public funds from the Conservation 20/20 land acquisition program, Lee County is capitalizing on natural infrastructure that provides innumerable benefits, such as flood protection for downstream communities, improved water quality, wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities. Significant in scope, the Edison Farms acquisition highlights the continued need for local governments and the state to employ conservation land acquisition and restoration as one of the tools to help address our water quality, water supply, and flooding issues. The lessons from Irma should be clear for all of us we need to invest more in our natural systems, not less. Protecting and restoring natural systems enhances natures ability to protect us and to continue providing essential services to our coastal and inland communities. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida recently released its Estuaries Report Card for the region. One of its key findings is that the quality of our estuaries, and the species that depend upon them, is greatly impacted by upstream development patterns. The more lands are converted from natural habitat to development, the more we open ourselves to further degradation of our already stressed estuaries. The Conservancy commends the Lee County Commissioners and the private land interests in preserving Edison Farms. There are two immediate opportunities to further strengthen natural systems as a defense against future storms, enhance estuary health and protect wildlife habitat: We urgently appeal to Collier County Commissioners to revive the Conservation Collier program, and to move forward with a Conservation Collier-specific referendum for the public to approve in the fall of 2018. Such county-based programs are essential for preserving key tracts of urban and rural land that provide us valuable ecosystem services in and out of storm season. Our local elected state representatives should take a leadership role in implementing Amendment 1 by dedicating the largest share of the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to the states conservation land acquisition and conservation easement programs. Our beaches, estuaries, wetlands, wildlife, Everglades and other unique natural resources are among the most paramount distinguishing features of our region. Lets make the necessary investment to strengthen these assets with opportunities now before us, which in turn, provide us so many benefits not only during a hurricane, but every day.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYbanks, Big Business and Corporate America came to the rescue before, during and after Irma. Many lenders and financial institutions informed clients theyd waive late charges and payments up to 90 days for those living in FEMAdeclared zones. AT&T and Verizon assembled caravans of trailers and command centers with tricked-out technology to aid emergency responders while providing residents with stations to recharge their phones and devices, connect to the Internet or dial into worried family members. Johnsonville Sausage sent its 65-foot Big Taste Grill to Naples and Immokalee to feed rescue workers and families without power. Kroll Ontrack the data recovery company that salvaged 99 percent of the hard drive on the ill-fate Space Shuttle Columbia offered free data retrieval for Florida residents. Sams Club opened stores in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte, temporarily waiving membership through Sept. 22. During a time of emergency the priority at Sams Club is to identify the best ways to serve the communities it calls home, Laura Ladd, senior manager of corporate communications, wrote in an email. The company got the word out via social media and happy shoppers took the time to praise the help, posting they were super grateful and also appreciated the club offering free cases of water to hurricane evacuees. One South Florida resident wrote: We are so exhausted and so grateful for your kindness to feed our little family. Florida-based Publix donated $1 million to American Red Cross and United Way Irma-related relief efforts as did other U.S. and international companies. Wells Fargo kicked in $1.1 million to hurricane recovery efforts in Florida and the Caribbean and announced it was offering customers fee and credit relief, suspending payments on credit cards, student and auto loans, home mortgages and other lines of credit for 90 days. It also waived fees for customers using another banks ATMs. Wells Fargo is committed to working with organizations and agencies to help our communities recover and we will determine the best way to support any additional efforts in the days and weeks ahead, CEO and President Tim Sloan said in a press release. In addition to deploying portable ATMs, the company also immediately set up opportunities to donate to hurricane relief efforts at ATMs and online. By midweek last week, Verizon had restored most of the 10 percent of its Florida customers who had lost service. It took a week, but basically were back to 100 percent, said Verizon spokesperson Howie Waterman. Our cell sites are on generators and theres a massive refueling to keep the generators going. One of Verizons sites on Marco Island, where Irma made landfall, toppled over but was still processing calls for customers, he said. We put up a temporary tower. Verizon also waived data, talk and text overage fees for nearly two weeks from the Sept. 10 storm. We want to help the community in every possible way, said Mr. Waterman, who has family in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Customers are still experiencing massive issues with housing and power and things that occur after a natural disaster. This is our way of telling our customers, Weve got your back. Hey, we live here, too, and we understand. It was just the right thing to do. Verizons network team plans yearround for severe storms and was immediately able to dispatch its Wireless Emergency Communications Centers tractor-trailers to Naples, Miami and the Keys, offering mobile tactical command services to assist government and emergency workers as well as providing customers with free calls, charging and computer stations and internet access so they can communicate with their friends, families and loved ones, said Mr. Waterman. Its gooseneck trailer was also called into commission, offering connectivity, five mobile workstations and an inflatable shelter while Big Red, a semi offering 24 public mobile work stations, was sent to the hard-hit Keys. As we reopened our stores, we also invited residents, regardless of their provider to come in a charge their devices. About 4,000 Verizon call center professionals also participated in the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Telethon that raised $55 million for those impacted by Harvey and Irma. The company donated $2.5 million to support the effort. Weve had a lot of positive comments and feedback from government agencies and first responders where we helped, Mr. Waterman said.

Equipment in floodand hurricane-prone areas are raised on stilts and switch buildings the brains of the network are designed to withstand Category 5 winds. Mr. Waterman said Verizon also uses drones to assess damage and has both generators and battery backup to keep the network up and running when commercial power is lost. AT&T also deployed its network recovery team. Florida vice president and general manager Cristy Swink and managers personally delivered 200 prepaid phones, a charging station, 100 portable chargers, 1,000 bottles of water and 500 bottles of Gatorade to Key West on Sept. 15. They arrived aboard the companys RV. It wasnt just about the devices, Ms. Swink said. It was about helping residents connect with their loved ones. They wanted to hear that everyone was okay. The company also provided charging accessories and stations and devices to first responders to support search and rescue efforts. Two portable cell sites in Naples were designated for public use. Charging stations were also set up in Naples and Fort Myers. AT&T deployed a fleet of drones to assist with damage assessment and recovery in the Florida Keys, noted company spokesperson Karen McAllister. Kroll Ontrack is helping residents and business owners who may have lost data and their devices to rain or rising water. The company, which has helped victims of natural disasters recover their business-critical and sentimental data for 30 years, donated $500,000 in services to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and later extended the offer to Floridians. Although the company hasnt yet met its quota, Dennis Hill, Krolls global head of sales whos based in Parkland, encourages residents to drop off their computers, cell phones, laptops and tablets as soon as possible. Weve partnered in Florida with Tech Zone for drop-off locations, he said. Most damage at this point has been the result of flooding and water. In some instances data pulls right off. This is what we do. This is in our DNA. Bring in your devices and give us a crack. Mr. Hill advises that residents shouldnt assume their data is unrecoverable, whether their device has been exposed to water, fire or a fall. We realize people might not back up as much as they should and they have pictures and family photos that are near and dear to their hearts, he said. We wanted to reach out to the community. We know theyre going through a lot and we want to help. From Wisconsin to Florida, Johnsonvilles Big Taste Grill rolled into Southwest Florida. Although it usually appears at festivals and fairs, company co-owner and Naples resident Shelly Stayer summoned it to her hometown to provide warm meals.

We are pleased to lend a helping hand from Wisconsin, and work with our local retailers in Florida to bring relief to these communities, said Ms. Stayer, whose father-in-law founded Johnsonville in 1945. We want our Florida friends and those disaster-relief workers and volunteers to know there are many positive thoughts and actions behind them as they rebuild and restore their lives and communities.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWhat did she do during that week at the office, aside from pine for the comfort of her own bed? Among other things, she shared long nights with people in the community via nightly reality check posts on the CCSO Facebook page. Although there were fewer than a dozen, the posts generated more than 2 million social interactions in little more than a week. Sheriff Rambosk believes in being transparent and straightforward with our community so that they can make those important decisions to keep themselves and their families safe, Chief Spell said of the inspiration for the tell-it-like-it-is posts. In a style that was decidedly atypical for anything coming from a public office, post-Irma reality checks provided important information that was succinct and peppered with a good dose of common sense so that people would know exactly what to do. And they would also know they were cared about. Chief Spell injected her own brand of deadpan humor in the posts; when writing about the critical water issues throughout the county, for example, she actually added the If its yellow, let it mellow advice nugget regarding flushing toilets. We told them we missed them. People who were frustrated because they had no power were told to hang in there, and that better days and brighter nights were coming, she said. We never wanted our safety messages to make fun or mock a serious situation, she added, but we knew some deadpan practical advice could be the glue that kept us all together for a few nights. She also helped mediate a few arguments through the posts, reminding the community at large that everyone was doing the best they could. Some followers even apologized to each other via Facebook, she said. People said they appreciated us treating them like adults who could handle the reality of our situation, she said, likening CCSOs social media page to Southwest Floridas very own Dear Abby column for a few nights. And she said reality check posts will certainly be part of CCSOs strategy during future significant events in the community. But, she added, We hope that isnt for a long while, if ever. Heres a timeline of reality check highlights, including some memorable comment threads (which have been edited for space and, in some cases, vulgarity): Tuesday, Sept. 12, 6:46 p.m.CCSO: We know everyone who left the area wants to come home. We know you may have heard that its okay to do so. We want you to know that its extremely hot and uncomfortable without power, air conditioning or water and sewer. We want you to know that food, water and gas are in very short supply. We want you to know that there is still a lot of debris everywhere and flooding in some places. We want you to know that driving is very dangerous without traffic signals and signs Please consider these factors when you make your decision to return over these next few days.COMMENTS Kristopher S., 7:20 p.m.: Stay away from here if you possibly can! The roads are extremely dangerous, and it doesnt make any sense to come here until basic resources are restored. Wednesday, Sept. 13, 6:51 p.m.CCSO: Recovery is tough, but our community is strong. Heres tonights reality check and what we want you to know if you are coming back soon: No power = no AC. Its hot here. Very hot. Homes that have water are under a boil water notice. Water supplies are on the way. Along with ice. Gas is in very limited supply. Lines are long. Blocks and hours long We are working as hard as we can to keep everyone safe. We want you to come home.COMMENTS Alyssa M., 8:10 p.m.: We take all the luxury of Naples (and the U.S.) for granted. This has been a wake up call (for me). Thank you for your hard work and thank you to my hospitable friend in North Carolina. Thursday, Sept. 14, 6:14 p.m.CCSO: Todays word of the day is progress. Not huge everythingis-back-to-normal progress, but progress. The gas situation is getting better. Most lines are now about an hour long Tempers seem to have evened out in the lines. Thank you for being patient, kind and neighborly. More homes and businesses have power. Nowhere near all. But more. Cell phone service has improved. Still a ways to go. More distribution points are in place for water, ice and food being provided by government agencies, nonprofits, private businesses and many people with huge hearts. A curfew remains in place No, we cant tell you that its OK to violate the curfew. We can tell you our deputies are reasonable and want you to be able to get home if you are arriving back in the middle of the night, etc. Now the not so great things: Its still hotter than you know what. It smells here. Theres an odor from decaying debris, standing water and other unpleasant smelling stuff. There is a SERIOUS concern about the wastewater/sewer systems that were impacted. They are in danger of backing up. Follow the If its yellow, let it mellow rule of flushing. Please.COMMENTS Leah P., 10:58 p.m.: Mellow yellow... LOL! That was a soft drink I remember drinking in the s. Oh boy ... the commercial jingle is now stuck in my head and Im cringing! Thx so much for the updates! Short and to the point! Friday, Sept. 15, 6:54 p.m.CCSO: Gas supply has really opened up. Lines are 10 to 15 minutes long for the most part. We all should have gas now, and thats a good thing. Power has been restored to just over 50 percent of FPL accounts andLCEC is making progress to restore some service in Everglades City. This is a miracle given the devastation there. Text or call your loved ones when you can and let them know you are okay. Theyve been worried about you. Driving conditions continue to improve throughout the county. Driving behavior, not so much. Please be careful and pay attention behind the wheel. The sewer situation reached a critical point today. It stinks that this happened, as water now has to be shut off periodically during the day We will try to get the times and locations from the county and post as we receive. Boil water still in effect. Schools restart Monday, Sept. 25. Stay safe, and have a good night.COMMENTS Nora J., 7:29 p.m.: CCSO, these posts are great! Whoever it is who writes these messages (and responds to the comments), you are awesome. CCSO reply at 8:06 p.m.: Thank you; we think keeping it real is important! Ren S., 8:22 p.m.: Is it Illegal to choke someone if they b**** about cable or not having power? Not a fatal choke, just a, Hey, stop your whining? CCSO reply at 8:36 p.m.: Yes, it is illegal. Its been rough for a lot of people this week. Its going to get better. Think happy thoughts, Ren. Lora B., Sept. 16 at 9:50 a.m.: Does a Brita faucet filter clean the water, or should you still boil the water? CCSO reply at 10:38 a.m.: Boil or bleach. No Brita! Saturday, Sept. 16, 4:06 p.m.CCSO: We thought last nights reality check would be our last one. We couldnt leave you hanging like that. So heres what we want you to know: Power is still coming back on in many areas of the county. That means its still off in areas, too. Crews are working tremendously hard to get everyones power back on its taking time to safely sort through this hot mess. Boil water protocols are in place You can shower with county water just keep your mouth closed and enjoy a quiet moment in the shower. The wastewater system is still at critical stage. Collier County officials are working on this and we need everyone to minimize what they are putting down the drains If we dont, the consequences will be dire and could involve buckets. Trust us, no one actually has buckets on their bucket list. Local government offices are opening for regular business on Monday. We are here to help. For real. If you have questions, comment below and we will try to answer as best we can. We cannot wave a wand and make your power magically turn on. We tried. It didnt work.COMMENTS Shirley R., 4:36 p.m.: Thank you to all of Collier County for doing such a great job and to whoever is writing these updates, you should know you are appreciated a special thank you to your teachers for teaching you the difference between those hard words like your and youre and there and their. I have yet to find any grammar errors of the kind that are so common on Facebook posts. Kudos! Reply by CCSO at 4:40 p.m.: Chief Spell thinks she was an English teacher in another life. She wasnt. Rebecca Z. at 7:50 p.m.: Will CCSO be entering the Hot Cop contest that is going viral right now? Reply by CCSO at 7:54 p.m.: Been there, done that, Rebecca! Scroll down to posts from a few days ago.

Sentinel-Record. Among the many items Goss purchased on the countys account were tickets to Arkansas Razorbacks games, sequined throw pillows and a tuxedo for her dog. Goss pleaded guilty on Sept. 11 to six felony fraud counts; her sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 22. Garland County Judge Rick Davis issued a statement at Gosss arrest noting that he had inherited her from a former judge.Its complicatedAs Hurricane Irma bore down on Florida, the Pasco County Sheriffs Office announced that registered sex offenders, who would not be able to shelter with other citizens, need someplace to go just like any other citizen. The Tampa Bay Times reported that sex offenders were directed to Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel. Pasco County Sheriffs spokesman Kevin Doll noted that offenders found in other shelters where children were present were subject to arrest, but said the predator shelter would welcome offenders from other counties. In nearby Polk County, officials were not so generous, telling sex offenders, If you are a predator, find somewhere else to go, and announcing that they would be checking IDs at the door and arresting anyone with an outstanding warrant. Campaign folliesIncumbent mayoral candidate Charles Pender erected his campaign signs in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on Aug. 30, but when he woke up on Aug. 31, he found that they had been vandalized with hot dogs. CBC News reported that someone had cut round holes in the signs and inserted hot dogs to look as if Pender was smoking a cigar. Pender called it minor mischief but noted that the signs are expensive. He called the police, but he feels its unlikely the frank bandit will be caught. He hopes to turn the incident into a good laugh with a bunraiser later in the election season. Compelling explanationsLisa Faye Stout, 53, came up with an unusual scapegoat for the mess police officers found in her room on Sept. 10 at New Castle, Indianas Raintree Inn, according to the Muncie Star Press. Vampires had destroyed everything, Stout told the officers, who were responding to reports that she had shown up in the hotel bar wearing no pants or undergarments. The front desk clerk also said Stout spit on her and threatened to kill her. As she was taken into custody, Stout spit some more and threatened to slice officers throats. Stout was charged in Henry County court with two counts of battery by bodily waste, intimidation and criminal mischief. Recalculating ...Well, it WAS dark ...

So, Spooner told reporters, I ran round to the front and asked him politely to step out. I then ended up on the front of the vehicle and it began to move.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELThe new Continental: The old Lincoln weve been waiting forIts been more than half a decade since the last proper full-sized Lincoln sedan was available. For some of us in Florida, that was too long. Sure, the last large Lincoln, the Town Car, was so prevalent in retirement communities that it became a stereotype. But is that a bad thing? Sizable, comfortable and with plenty of flair, a large Lincoln was the ultimate symbol of showcasing a life of hard work. Now its all back for a new generation. The 2017 Lincoln Continental continues in the tradition of a sizable flagship offering, but has replaced much of its early-bird-special reputation with something much more chic. Floridians should take particular pride in this car, because we helped launch the original. Edsel Ford had the first Continental built in 1939 for his personal one-off car to drive at his Florida vacation home. All of his wellheeled friends liked it so much that he put it into limited production. The Continental was the top standalone brand, the highest name in the Lincoln hierarchy, for more than four decades. The moniker lost some luster when used on more moderately sized luxury machines from 1982 to 2002, but the styling of the brand new 2017 car is out to capture the old magic. The rounded fenders evoke memories of Mr. Fords first-generation car. The well-defined creases feel inspired by the Mark II coupe, one of the most expensive cars of the 1950s. The chrome beltline recalls the iconic suicide-door fourth-generation model. But this Continental is also out to create its own legacy, with plenty of thoughtful design touches to inspire future generations, like the well-integrated door handles and the way the headlights do a little dance to greet whoever is holding the smart key. Inside, Lincoln continues its recent tradition of individual controls for most features. It doesnt rely on joysticks or mouse pads to consolidate interior settings, which can make some customers feel like they are getting a technology overload. But even with plenty of buttons and knobs, the presentation is clear, precise and premium. The new Continental starts out at $45,645, which is not cheap, but theres a lot included for the money: Power front seats, a digital gauge panel, active interior noise cancellation, touch screen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, soft-touch materials and limousine-like rear seat space are all standard. Plenty of options are offered in Lincolns rebuilt image of its flagship Continental, including technology features such as adaptive cruise control, lanehold assistance and a 360-degree camera system. And because its aimed to offer the best luxury, there are seating options like the Perfect Position 30-way power chairs up front. Theres also a rear-seat package with power adjustments as well as heating and cooling. The highest trim in Lincolns hierarchy is called Black Label, but ironically, the upgrades best feature is an exclusive color called Rhapsody Blue. The medium dark hue is a callback to an almost lacquer-like shine on Lincolns from decades ago, which adds to the cars timeless presence. Black Label is also the only way to get the coordinating Rhapsody Blue leather interior. When ordered together, the total package that makes the Continental feel quite European. A Continental Black Label edition starts at $64K, but be careful. This top trim, plus the luxury options weve mentioned, creates a car thats quickly approaching $75K. That kind of money buys plenty of loaded large sedans from the likes of BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and Jaguar. But the Continental isnt out to compete directly with those vehicles. While European and Japanese luxury machines often focus on creating that dynamic feeling of a full-size sports car, the Continental remembers that many traditional Lincoln customers put a comfortable ride at the top of their list. Special attention has been paid to make this a smooth cruiser, and the trio of available V6 motors (two of them turbocharged) is geared to be confident but not all-out speed demons. Recognizing that its customer base has changed over the years, Lincoln combats the old land-yacht stereotype with some of the sharpest steering ever to come from this brand. Plus, the allwheel-drive models have rear-wheel torque vectoring (individual variable wheel speeds) for tighter handling. The total effect is a modern car that lives up to its premium and comfortable heritage. And since it was South Florida that stimulated the first Continental, we can particularly rejoice that the new car revives the spirit that inspired folks to beg Mr. Ford for one all those generations ago. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Step Up In at AGOSTINOS Call Today! 239.594.303711985 Tamiami Trail NorthNaples, FLOPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 10-5, SUNDAY 11-4Visit our new website at agostinos.com Also visit: interiorsbyagostinos.comVisit Our ShowroomFINE FURNITURE.

Emergency-room interventions shown to be effective in reducing suicide NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHThree interventions designed for follow up of patients who are identified with suicide risk in hospital emergency departments save lives and are cost effective relative to usual care. A study led by researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health modeled the use of the approaches in emergency departments and found that all three interventions compare favorably with a standard benchmark of cost-effectiveness used in evaluating healthcare costs. NIMH is part of the National Institutes of Health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; 44,193 people died by suicide in the United States in 2015, the most recent year for which statistics are available. One approach to reducing the suicide rate is to direct prevention strategies at high-risk groups or settings, such as emergency departments, where more than 500,000 people receive treatment each year for self-harm injuries. Research has found several emergency department-based interventions to be effective in preventing post-emergency suicide attempts, but none has been widely disseminated or adopted yet. They are: Postcards: Hospital staff mail follow-up postcards each month for four months to all patients identified as atrisk, and then every other month for a total of eight cards. Telephone outreach: One to three months after discharge, hospital staff call patients to offer support and encourage engagement in follow-up treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy: Hospital staff connect patients to a suicide-focused cognitive behavioral therapy program. Each of these interventions has been tested via randomized controlled trials and found to reduce patients suicide risk on the order of 30 to 50 percent. The current study extends this prior research by estimating the cost-effectiveness of these interventions, relative to usual care. The investigators carried out Monte Carlo simulations, a method of evaluating the possible consequences of an action when many unpredictable factors could affect the outc ome. The investigators modeled a roughly yearlong period following the arrival of patients at an emergency department. The chain of events they considered encompassed entry of the patient to an emergency department, screening for suicide risk, emergency departmentbased treatment or hospitalization and outcomes. It could also include additional visits to the emergency department, if the person considered or attempted suicide again during the follow-up period. The investigators estimated the cost of each intervention by combining information on health services reported in previous clinical trials and national rates for medical procedures, emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Relative to usual care, the use of postcards both reduced suicide attempts and deaths and slightly reduced health-care costs, making it a dominant intervention in terms of cost-effectiveness. Telephone outreach and cognitive behavioral therapy reduced suicide attempts and deaths while increasing health-care costs slightly, the former by $5,900 and the latter by $18,800 per additional life-year saved. A commonly used benchmark for cost-effectiveness the amount a society is willing to pay for the benefit accrued by a health care procedure is $50,000 per additional life-year. And recent research suggests that that amount is conservative that is, our society is willing to pay considerably more per life-year.A recent study reported that screening all those (18 and older) entering an emergency department for risk of suicide, regardless of the reason for the visit, nearly doubled the rate of identification of those at risk. The model suggests that universal screening of patients could substantially increase the public health benefits of implementing the prevention strategies modeled in this study.Suicide risk is relatively common among people who seek care from a hospital emergency department, said lead investigator Michael Schoenbaum, Ph.D., senior advisor for Mental Health Services, Epidemiology and Economics in NIMHs Division of Services and Intervention Research. Its really important for us to identify better ways to reduce suicide risk in this group and to implement those widely.The NIMH report was published in the Sept. 15 issue of the journal Psychiatric Services.

Since we opened our doors in 1999, weve been dedicated to providing hope and healing to those in need in Collier County, explained CEO Leslie Lascheid. Typically, this refers to patients. However, post-Irma, it means sharing our space with local medical providers who still do not have power. Irma might have devastated much of Southwest Florida, but her impact has united us in a spirit of collaboration and care that will help our community heal. Cardiologists James Talano and Robert Baily of the SWICFT Institute were provided NHC rooms to see their patients. The clinic also served as the post-Irma office for neurologist Maria Santiago and staff. Exam rooms were made available to physicians who were displaced by Hurricane Irma and who were either NHC volunteers or members of the Collier County Medical Association or a Clinic volunteer. In the days immediately following the storm, NHC staff and volunteers worked diligently to ensure the medical facility was ready to receive patients and to save the $2.5 million in donated medication that was nearly lost due to power outages. The clinic received support from community, government and political leaders, as well as citizens who offered a helping hand. We are forever grateful for the kindness shown to us by both our long-time supporters and those new to the clinic, Ms. Lascheid said. As a community working together we know we will remain Naples Strong.About the clinicThe Neighborhood Health Clinic has approximately 250 physicians, 42 dentists, 100 nurses and 300 non-medical personnel who donate their expertise. Supported by 13 fulltime and seven part-time paid staff, they performed more than 26,951 patient procedures in fiscal year 2016 and provided more than 9,900 patient visits with working, uninsured men and women in fiscal year 2016. NHC patients have access to general medical practitioners and also to specialty clinics for complex and chronic conditions and dentists. Basic tests for established patients are conducted in the clinics onsite laboratory. For more information about the Neighborhood Health Clinic, including ways to support the nonprofit organization, please call 261-7416 or visit www.NeighborhoodHealthClinic.org.

P ET T A LESCelebrate adoption BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationLast month we lost our little Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix, Gemma, to cancer. She was probably 16 or 17 years old, so she had a good, long life, but losing an old and beloved dog is always hard on the heart, even when youve had her for only 4 years. She was not the dog we were expecting when she joined our family, but she soon let us know that she was the dog we needed.Gemma came to us in January 2013, about two months after the death of our black-and-tan Cavalier, Twyla, who collapsed and died unexpectedly during a visit to my parents. That left us with only one dog, 6-year-old Harper. When we returned home, I told my friend Maryanne Dell, with Shamrock Rescue Foundation, which pulls and places dogs in shelters at risk of euthanasia, that we could foster a dog for her. She brought us Gemma.This tiny dog she weighed in at 6 pounds walked into our lives and quickly took over, despite her unprepossessing appearance. She had a large bare patch on her back, and the rest of her fur had been trimmed short. She had a mouth full of bad teeth, all of which were removed except for a couple of fangs. The shelter estimated her age at 12 or 13 years. By the time wed had her a few months, though, she could have been a poster dog for shelter adoption. Except for a brief squat beneath our birds cage to mark her new territory, Gemma turned out to be perfectly house-trained. Despite her age, she set a rapid pace on our walks around the block. Sometimes she went so fast that I had to break into a jog to keep up with her. She demanded to go to nose work class with Harper and me and turned out to excel at the sport. Once it grew out, her coat was long and flowing. It was clear she was used to living in a home where she was spoiled, because she insisted on sleeping under the covers. I fought it for a while but eventually her persistence won out. I hoped that Gemma would be one of those tiny dogs that live into their 20s, but her disease came on suddenly, and she was 2 weeks later. I cant think of a better way to honor her special personality than to spread the word about ways to help shelter dogs. Foster a dog. That was originally the plan with Gemma, until she informed us she was staying, so thats a risk. After we adopted Gemma, we fostered another dog a few months later. His name was Kibo. Now hes our Keeper. Yes, we were foster failures twice in less than a year. If you cant run the risk of being a foster failure, help in other ways. Rescue groups that pull dogs from shelters often need help transporting the dogs to their foster or adoptive families. Donations of dog food, other pet supplies or money to be used as needed are also welcome. Check to see if your local shelter or favorite rescue group has a wish list on Amazon. Spread the word about adoptable dogs through social media. Petfinder suggests posting on Facebook or Twitter that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, or you can share a post about a different adoptable dog every day of the month. If you can adopt a dog, dont overlook one with a little mileage. The love youll get back is everlasting, even if the dog isnt. Gemma packed a lot of love and happiness into a tiny body. Pets of the Week>> Belle is a quiet and friendly 3-month-old Chihuaha mix who weighs just over 3 pounds. She loves to play and is eager to learn. >> Elvis is a gentle and handsome 5-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever mix who lost his home through no fault of his own. He knows his basics, is easy to walk and will make a wonderful family dog. >> Greybo is a laidback 8-year-old domestic shorthair who loves being petted and cuddled. He has tested positive for Feline Immunode ciency virus, which only affects cats and is not easily passed between cats. Greybo needs a special home that will give him the loving care he needs. >> Thumbalina is a beautiful, blue-eyed 7-month-old domestic shorthair whose front paws are polydactyl. Shes a lovely lap cat and will make an awesome companion.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services. Adoption fees for cats range from $20 to $60 and dogs from $30 to $80. Fees include sterilization surgery, vaccinations, pet license, ID microchip and a bag of food. Visit DAS at 7610 Davis Blvd. from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Adoptable dogs and cats from DAS are also at For Footed Friends in Marquesa Plaza on Livingston Road from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the rst Saturday of every month.

Public Play Limited Time 2 FOR 1 OFF AM Green Fees THE DIVA DIARIESWho needs batteries when you have multiple boxes of Capn Crunch?I wanted to meet Anderson Cooper and get a selfie with him, I really did but I was too busy stuffing my face with hurricane food. The silver fox, in all his handsome glory, was wearing his signature tight, black disaster T-shirt, highlighting his perfectly sculpted biceps, as he broadcast live on CNN just two blocks from my condo. It was the day before Irma hit Florida and conditions in my neighborhood were minimally cloudy and windy I could have easily changed out of my pajamas and taken the 10-minute walk to get a selfie with Coop. But I wasnt willing to put down the jar of peanut butter I was eating. I wasnt the only one stress-eating up a storm. Ive commiserated with several friends who are still trying to get rid of their recently acquired hurricane hips. For me, it started in the days before Irma, when I was madly dashing through the aisles of Publix for survival supplies. When meteorologists on the Weather Channel are warning you that a Category 5 hurricane is headed straight for your front door, your sense of good judgment can become cloudy. For instance, when I saw that the battery aisle was empty, I supplemented by putting three packages of DoubleStuffed Oreos in my cart Oreos wouldnt power a flashlight, but they could soothe my fear of the dark. When I saw a woman dash by me pushing a cart filled with Capn Crunch cereal, I assumed she must know something about hurricane recovery that I didnt so, I stocked up on Capn Crunch. Surely all this sugar would keep my energy up in case I needed to clear debris from my yard then I remembered that we live in a condo and that we dont actually HAVE a yard, so I decided to descend upon the canned meat aisle because protein is filling. How I reasoned in my panic that Id need 12 cans of Vienna Sausages, I will never know. Then, suddenly, post-Irma popcorn sounded like a good idea, so I tossed several boxes of Orville Redenbachers Extra Buttery in the cart it wasnt until I was putting it in my pantry that I realized that if our electricity died, our microwave wouldnt work. Clearly, I was afflicted with hurricane brain. Anxiety and a kitchen filled with end-of-the-world rations is not a good combination. Its fortuitous that I quit smoking seven years ago, because otherwise I would have gone through a carton of cigarettes within a few days. Instead, I ate and ate and ate. Every time I turned on the TV to see locals boarding up their windows, I grabbed an Oreo; whenever I got a call from a friend up north telling me that I was facing certain death by not evacuating, I put a handful of Capn Crunch in my mouth. I binged Vienna Sausages while taking photos of all of our valuables for possible future insurance claims. And its true I was spooning Jiff Crunchy Peanut Butter out of the jar and into my mouth while wearing elastic-waist pajamas at 3 in the afternoon as I watched Anderson on national TV, just a short stroll from my building. Too lazy, stressed and stuffed to move I put a plea out to my Facebook friends to get selfies with Anderson and quite a few did. While many of my pals admitted to eating most of their hurricane food before the actual hurricane, they also reported that they took off the extra Irma pounds by clearing their yards and streets in the aftermath, sweating with no electricity and burning calories due to poststorm stress. As for me, whats left of my hurricane snacks are bagged up and ready to be donated to an area food bank as I try to motivate myself to get back into the gym. And while I regretfully missed my selfie opportunity with Anderson Cooper, I hope never to see him and his rockhard biceps in my neighborhood ever again. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week S w c m C k stephanieDAVIS email@example.com COURTESY PHOTOWhile the author was eating all her hurricane food, her friends Barbara German and Christal Riddle-George got a selfie with Anderson Cooper.
BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017A22 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM j obNewontheOU LANDED A GREAT INTERNship and couldnt wait to get started. But as it turns out, its not as glamorous as you thought it would be. In fact, most of your time is spent on menial tasks like picking up the coffee and running errands. It might seem like the work youre doing doesnt really matter. But CEO, entrepreneur and interning expert Emily White says your ho-hum responsibilities are more important than you think. Dont be discouraged if your internship workload seems less exciting than you expected, Ms. White, the cofounder and CEO of Whitesmith Entertainment and the author of Interning 101, advises all interns out there in offices of all kinds. You are an essential part of the team, even if your biggest challenge is taking out the recycling on time. And believe it or not, you really could learn a thing or two from the grunt work youre asked to complete. A thought leader in the entertainment SEE INTERN, A23 YTips can help interns stay focused, humble and passionate while doing grunt workSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ The U.S. Small Business Administration has opened a Business Recovery Center in Collier County to help businesses impacted by Hurricane Irma. SBA representatives there can provide information about disaster loans, answer questions and assist businesses in completing the SBA application. The center at the Naples Accelerator, 3510 Kraft Road, is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday. The SBA is committed to facilitating economic recovery in this disaster, said Frank Skaggs, director of SBAs Atlanda field operations center for the east region. We want area businesses to have a resource where they can meet individually with SBA representatives and find out how a low-interest disaster loan can help them recover. Local business owners might also want to consult with a local SCORE or Small Business Development Center counselor for help with recreating business records, preparing financial statements and applying for an SBA disaster loan at no cost. The SBA offers low-interest, longterm disaster loans for physical damage and working capital. Nov. 7 is the deadline for applying for loans to cover physical damage due to Hurricane Irma; June 11 is the deadline for applying for a loan necessitated by economic injury. For more information, call the SBA at 800-659-2955 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants can apply online via SBAs secure website at https://disasterloan. sba.gov/ela. Loan applications can be downloaded from www.sba.gov. Does you company have what it tak es t o win the fourth-quarter VenturePitch Southwest Florida?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 BUSINESS A23industry with business locations in New York and Los Angeles, Ms. White credits her early success to the internships she did during college. Here are six of her tips to help interns stay inspired and at the top of their game throughout an internship experience. Pay attention to the little things If youre asked to get coffee and there are certain details involved, do it perfectly. Although this is a clich task, companies start interns out with level-zero tasks. Why? They want to ensure that you can do what is asked of you, down to every detail. If you mess up your supervisors coffee, how can they trust you with higher-level details? Her own company starts interns out with database entries, Ms. White says. We clearly state in our handbook to copy and paste data entries so errors are not made. When we go to grab a contact and pitch a client and get a bounce-back, we know that the intern didnt take the task seriously, she says. Additionally, that sloppy entry might result in a bounce-back hours later, when its the end of the day. I prefer to pitch people on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, Im often out at meetings. Due to the sloppy entry, the pitch might not go out for the client until a week later. The lesson here: Small details are really important. See the big picture No matter your task, do it to the best of your ability. Dont be above anything. Everything you do should be taken seriously, no matter how trivial it seems. To stay focused on even the most basic tasks, think about how your task fits into the big picture of the company, Ms. White says. I guarantee that everything you do has real impact and plugs into the overall success of the company. Use your downtime effectively Many interns are surprised when they arent given much to do. But its OK. You still have a chance to learn something important. Listen, look and observe all that is going on around you. Youll find out what to wear, pick up industry terms and learn how to behave in an office setting. This is crucial information that you literally cannot learn in college, she says. Be present (outside of regular work hours) Whenever possible, say yes to attending any industry or company events you are invited to. You want to show your new colleagues your passion and can do so simply by showing up. If youre not invited, find a quiet moment to ask your supervisor if you can attend and help out in any way. And once youre there, dont forget to help out. An important piece of advice for any work event: No matter your age, not drinking at work functions is always the best option, Ms. White says. Be the sober person who takes it all in, learns as much as possible and remembers everyones names. This is a good rule of thumb even when youre not an intern, she adds. Think it through Before asking questions, try figuring out a task on your own first. A lot of the time, most of the information you need is already there or can be found by simply looking it up. You will feel a greater sense of accomplishment for tasks you were able to complete by yourself. Ask your supervisor only when you are truly stumped. And when you need help, Ms. White advises, Wait until late in the day or a quiet moment to ask your supervisor. Dont ask for help first thing in the morning or the middle of the day when your supervisor is most likely slammed. Such mindfulness and awareness of time will get you far, she promises. Take care of yourself When youre tired mentally or physically, it can be hard to stay focused and do your best work. Ms. White suggests trying meditation and/or exercising before going into work to help ensure youre fully energized and focused to tackle all tasks to the best of your ability. Also, try to get as much sleep as possible, she says. This will keep your mind sharp and help you to stand out above and beyond all.Grunt work is good workThe most important lesson to take away, Ms. White says, is that all internships are priceless opportunities despite the inevitable grunt work.

INTERNFrom page 22 MONEY & INVESTINGThe Feds latest moves should serve as a wake-up call for us allOne of the most famous quotes about successful communications is attributed to the Greek philosopher Aristotle: Tell them what you are going to tell them. Then tell them. Then tell them what you told them. Janet Yellen and the Fed have tried to follow this advice over the last year as they have telegraphed to the investment community in no uncertain terms their plans for interest rates and its massive balance sheet. Finally, last week the Fed began to enact some of these marketmoving strategies. So what did the Fed announce and what effect will it have on the markets? To understand the latest move we first must go back to the financial crisis and remind ourselves of the extraordinary measures employed by the Fed to stabilize the markets. It first cut the short-term rate, the rate it has direct influence upon, to basically zero. Then, wanting to cut long-term rates, it did so by aggressively buying mediumand long-dated bonds, reasoning that historically low interest rates would spur both corporate spending on new plants and equipment as well as consumer spending on high-value assets like homes and cars. Today, the economy is much stronger and financial markets are at all-time highs. As a result, the Fed indicated earlier this year that it would begin to reverse its bond-buying program and continue increasing short-term rates. The Fed currently owns $4.5 trillion worth of bonds and keeps that number constant by buying more bonds with the money it receives when any bonds in its portfolio mature. Last week it announced it will start to shrink its massive bond portfolio by $10 billion per quarter starting next month by buying fewer bonds that mature. This number will rise consistently so that by this same time next year, the Fed will be decreasing the amount of bonds on its balance sheet by $50 billion per quarter not an insignificant sum of money. In addition, the Fed announced it anticipates raising short-term rates one more time this year, three times next year and two more times in 2019. Even though Ms. Yellen has warned the market every time she had an opportunity that these changes were coming, some analysts were still surprised by the recent announcements believing that low inflation numbers would force the Fed to adjust its plans. As a result, rates increased across the board on last weeks release. Beyond the immediate rate m ove, the dollar also rose against most world currencies. Gold fell as the opportunity cost of owning the non-interest bearing metal increased. Bond prices fell along with stocks that act like bonds, such as REITs and Utility companies. One sector that benefited from this was bank stocks, whose profitability should increase along with rates. The ramifications of this move by the Fed will affect more than just a few stock sectors. Anyone who has credit card debt, auto loans, an adjustable-rate mortgage or any other floating rate debt will be affected as the Fed continues to normalize interest rates. All levels of government will also feel the pinch, as a larger portion of their budgets will have to be allocated to debt service. On the flip side, savers could finally begin to see returns on bank products start creeping up. All in all, the recent Fed move should be a wake-up call to us all, forcing us to think about how our business and personal finances will be affected in a higher rate environment.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Life Changes Mean Tax ChangesAfter celebrating or mourning various life changes, you need to tend to the tax changes they may bring about. Fail to do so, and it could cost you. With any new job, fill out that W-4 form carefully, lest you end up having too much or too little money withheld from your paycheck. If you have substantial other income, such as interest and dividends, adjust the withholding accordingly. If youre paying off a mortgage or student loans, or are otherwise able to itemize deductions, you might adjust your withholding allowances upward to reflect your lower expected taxes. If youre changing jobs, try not to cash out your 401(k) account. Instead, you can transfer those retirement assets to a traditional or Roth IRA, where they can keep growing for you and where you can control the investments.When you get married, revise your W-4 withholding status immediately. Many couples get whacked with the marriage penalty, where, if both spouses work, they may pay more in taxes than two single people with the same incomes. Come tax time, run the numbers to see if its best to file your returns separately or jointly.Divorcing? Again, adjust your withholding to reflect your new filing status. With the splitting of marital assets, your other income (such as interest and dividends) might change, and you may have less or no mortgage interest to deduct. Assets will also be divided, and the tax impact will follow the person who retains the property. Forced sales of assets might generate capital gains. Alimony is generally taxable to the person receiving it, and deductible by the person paying it, but child support is neither taxable to the recipient nor deductible by the payer. Your filing status is based on your status on the last day of the tax year. Theres much more to know about these and other life changes (such as adoptions, unemployment, etc.). To learn more, you can visit fool.com/taxes or irs.gov. The IRS website even sports a W-4 calculator tool to help you. Better still, consult a tax pro. Learning the Hard WayI bought shares of Sirius XM Holdings and Taser International at their highs. I dont think they will ever get where they need to get so I can get rid of them. I paid too much for both, and I just keep holding. Oh well, Im learning. D., onlineThe Fool Responds: Your story offers several lessons. First off is the importance of patience. Taser, which has been redubbed Axon Enterprise, is still underwater for you, but Sirius is up about 23 percent as of this writing, since you wrote to us. Stocks rarely behave exactly as theyre expected to. Next, dont think so much about a stocks highs or lows. A stock that has fallen to a 52-tweek low can still fall further, while a stock that has doubled or tripled can still keep rising over the short or long term. Its more helpful to try to figure out what a given stock (one tied to a healthy and growing company) is really worth and then aim to buy when its undervalued. That way it will be more likely to rise in value than to fall. Finally, if you have little faith in any holding, unload it no matter whether that will deliver a gain or loss. Whatever money is left in it can be redeployed into a stock in which you do have a lot of confidence. A Pfine IdeaThe worlds leader in prescription drug sales, Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) covers a lot of ground with its product lineup, from topselling pneumococcal vaccine Prevnar 13 and epilepsy fighter Lyrica to treatments such as cholesterol lowerer Lipitor and erectile dysfunction drug Viagra.Pfizer has been the poster child for the patent cliff, that period of time immediately following the loss of patent protection on a lucrative drug. Lipitor had once generated as much as $13 billion annually, but it has since seen 85 percent of the drugs revenue wiped out as generics hit the market.Still, Pfizer has a deep portfolio of drug candidates in its pipeline that should usher in a new period of prosperity. As of Aug. 1, it had 99 ongoing clinical-stage trials and registration reviews, including 32 late-stage studies. Its advanced breast cancer drug Ibrance has already posted more than $1.5 billion in worldwide sales in the first six months of 2017, while sales of anti-inflammatory Xeljanz are growing briskly, too. The stock offers patient investors a dividend that recently yielded 3.6 percent and that has been hiked by 45 percent over the past five years. Loss of exclusivity for legacy drugs remains the most significant challenge for Pfizer, and declining sales from these drugs will continue to weigh down its growth. Still, though, Wall Street expects Pfizer to grow earnings by close to 6 percent annually over the next few years. Few people know my name, but my chips ar e v ery likely in your smartphone, cable box and other devices.

I or my predecessors introduced the first LED dot-matrix displays in the 1960s and launched the first Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/FM combo chip for mobile phones in 2007. I have shipped more than a billion optical mouse chips. My market value recently topped $100 billion. Who am I? (Answer: Broadcom Ltd.) Puzzling BehaviorQWhat could be going on with a company Im considering investing in? It seems to be doing everything right, as its sales and earnings have been growing at double-digit rates, and its carrying no debt. Yet the stock keeps falling. H.P., Norwalk, ConnecticutAStudy it more closely. Even steep growth rates may be lower than previous levels. Check out expectations, too. If the company and/or Wall Street analysts expect slower growth in the future, that can dampen enthusiasm for the stock, with many people selling shares and thereby depressing its price. Perhaps competitors are fast advancing on the company or questions have been raised about its management or offerings. Remember that investors need to focus on any companys future more than its past.Then theres the stock price itself. Since the company has been growing briskly, investors may have bid up the stock to lofty heights, well above its intrinsic value, and the price may now be settling back to more reasonable levels. Always look at a companys big picture. ***QCan you explain what Warren Buffetts mentor, Benjamin Graham, meant when he said, In the short run the market is a voting machine. In the long run its a weighing machine? K.T., Carson City, NevadaAGraham was pointing out how from day to day, the stock market reflects the popularity of various stocks and the psychology of investors. Investors vote by buying and selling, sending prices up and down. Over the long run, though, the popularity contest fades away and value is what matters. Stock prices ultimately reflect or approach the value of the underlying companies, based on their sales and earnings and their potential growth.

He will have additional responsibilities in the development of condominium communities. Mr. Agins brings more than 12 years of experience in the new home industry to Neal Communities. He grew up in southeast Florida and earned a bachelors degree in marketing with a minor in sales management from the University of Florida. Lane Boy has joined Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida, LLC, as director of real estate. Mr. Boy recently returned to Southwest Florida after several decades in Australia, where he was the CEO of two real estate-related businesses for 20 years, a direct investor in Southwest Florida real estate and the founder of a company that published one of Australias highest selling real estate magazines. He is a graduate of University of Queensland in Australia and Duke University. Jamie Bresnahan has been named community sales associate for the Ashton Woods community of Marsh Cove in Fiddlers Creek. Ms. Bresnahan brings nearly a decade of professional sales and marketing experience representing a wide range of products throughout the southeastern United States, Florida and the Caribbean to her new position. She most recently was an area sales manager for Q Drinks, directing all sales and marketing activity for Florida and working directly with the distributors manageExisting-homes sales have retreated in four of the past five months, but new survey findings from the National Association of Realtors indicate it is not because of a lack of confidence from consumers about buying and selling a home, nor is it based on their views about the direction of the economy and their finances. Thats according to NARs third quarter Housing Opportunities and Market Experience survey. HOME also found that two-thirds of households think saving for a down payment is challenging, and roughly half of renters expect to pay more in rent next year. This quarter, there appears to be a revival from renters that now is a good time to buy a home. After dipping to roughly half of renters last quarter (52 percent), the share who believe now is a good time climbed to 62 percent (60 percent a year ago). Overall, current homeowners (80 percent), households with higher incomes and those living in the more affordable Midwest and South regions are the most optimistic about buying right now. Amidst the steady gains in home values seen in many parts of the country, the share of homeowners that believe now is a good time to sell is also inching higher. Eighty percent of homeowners think now is a good time to list their home for sale (a new survey high), which is up from last quarter (75 percent) and even more so than a year ago (67 percent). Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says it is great news that homebuyer and seller optimism is advancing, but it remains unclear if it will actually translate to more sales. The housing market has been in a funk since early spring because of the ongoing scarcity of new and existing homes for sale, he said. The pace of new home construction has not meaningfully broken out this year, and not enough homeowners at this point have followed through with their belief that now is a good time to sell. As a result, he added, home shoppers have seen limited options, stiff competition and weakening affordability conditions. Although buyer demand is robust, the disappointing reality is that sales will continue to undershoot their full potential until supply levels significantly impr ove, he said. A brightening outlookMore households this quarter (57 percent) believe the economy is improving compared to the second quarter (54 percent) and a year ago (48 percent). Continuing the complete reversal from a year ago, those living in rural and suburban areas were more optimistic about the economy than respondents residing in urban areas. A majority of homeowners and those with incomes above $50,000 also had a positive outlook on the economy. The rebound in economic confidence this quarter is also giving households increased assurances about their financial situation. The HOME surveys monthly personal financial outlook index, which shows respondents confidence that their financial situation will be better in six months, jumped from 57.2 in June to 62.0 in September. A year ago, the index was 58.6. Jobs are plentiful, wage growth is finally showing signs of life, home values are up considerably in the past five years and the stock market is at record highs, Mr. Yun said. The economy is not perfect, he stressed, and growth overall is still sluggish, but the financial picture of the typical household looks as healthy as it has since the recession.Renters plansThis quarter, non-homeowners were asked if they expect their rent to increase over the next year and, given their current financial situation, what impact paying more in rent would have REAL ESTATE NEWSMAKERS AGINS BRESNAHAN SEE NEWSMAKERS, B12 SEE HOME, B15 NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS_______________________________

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 contracts remain strongThe first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. The Manchester, England native has worked in the cities of London and Atlanta, as well as on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. More than 20 years ago he moved to Naples and has been associated with some of the finest Beach and Golf Clubs in the area. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: The first tower at Kalea Bay is slated to be completed in November. Kalea Bay residences have very open floor plans. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse features three separate pools. Right: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. Below: Kalea Bays Tower 1 and Tower 2 were designed with rooftop amenities, including a sky lounge, spectacular pool and open-air fitness center.ADVERTORIAL g Ab ov e: T he f ir st t ow er a t Ka le a Ba y is s la te d to

Roughly half of current renters expect to pay more in rent next year (51 percent). If in fact their rent does increase, most will either renew their lease anyway (42 percent) or move to a cheaper rental. Only 15 percent of respondents will consider buying a home. Even though the typical down payment of a first-time buyer has been 6 percent for three straight years, two-thirds of respondents indicated that saving for one is difficult right now, Mr. Yun said. Rents and home prices have outpaced incomes in the past few years, and this is undoubtedly impacting their ability to put aside savings for a home purchase, even if they increasingly believe its a good time to buy. Heading into next year, higher home prices and limited inventory in the affordable price range will likely continue to hold back a share of renters who would prefer to be homeowners. About the HOME surveyIn July through early September, a sample of U.S. households was surveyed via random-digit dial, including a mix of cell phones and landlines. The survey was conducted by the survey research firm TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence. Each month approximately 900 qualified households responded to the survey. The data was compiled for this report and a total of 2,709 household responses are represented. HOMEFrom page 1

University Press of Florida. 374 pages. Hardcover, $24.95.For a scholarly enterprise, this book is notable for its high energy and conversational tone. One can feel author John Capouyas obvious excitement over the opportunity to celebrate the dazzling contributions of those in the art and business of soul music. A sizeable group of talented and inventive characters make longer or shorter appearances in this lively slice of Floridas cultural history. Interestingly, though soul is thought of as a sturdy branch in the tree of AfroAmerican music, Mr. Capouya makes it clear that white performers and other white music industry professionals played major roles in the regional and national success of this musical genre. His chaptering system links the recording artists and other music professionals with key cities, large and small, in the history of the genres development and significant presence. His titles add up to a map of the world we are exploring, but without an actual map. Clearly, the state has been saturated with native born or adopted Floridians who built a musical tradition. Of course, soul music did not grow out of nothing. The author explores its roots in gospel music, its intimate connections with R&B and its sometimes-unwelcome offspring, disco. Not only does Mr. Capouya provide vivid career biographies of the major players who achieved significant record sales, in many chapters he allows them to speak for themselves by providing the results of extended interviews. Some achieved stellar (bankable) accomplishments in many fields: as lead instrumentalists and singers, as back-up musicians, as songwriters, as nightclub owners, as record producers, as managers and as tour arrangers. Sooner or later during souls heydays in the 1960s and 0s, everybody seems to have worked with or at least appreciated (by imitation) everyone else. It was a vibrant community of music-makers in which a person was a headliner one day and part of a backup group the next. Although competitive, these men and women fostered a sense of mutual support. Only a few were committed loners. Florida Soul takes us back to the s and forward into and through the s. Its background story over that stretch of time is a fascinating and often hopeful tale of race relations among people who shared a passion. Though white performers of black music were sometimes treated disparagingly, most often the music they could make won out over racial or ethnic ownership of a style or vision. This inclusiveness is best symbolized by the down home and mainstream success of KC and the Sunshine Band, a group at once multiracial and multiethnic that was influenced by and in turn influenced other groups. These musicians were part of the parade passing in and out of the dominant recording operation: Henry Stones T.K. Productions in Miami, which produced soul and other genre recordings on various labels that Mr. Stone owned, including Deluxe, Dade, Glades, Cat, Drive, Marlin and more. Mr. Capouyas history of the genre and its exemplary figures includes such unexpected matters as discussions of chord progressions. Believe it or not, this technical talk is made accessible and engaging to the musically illiterate. Indeed, a good number of the soul musicians could not read sheet music, but they could memorize and copy what they saw and heard. For many, this seeming limitation released their inventiveness and individuality. At the end of his journey through soul history, the author makes it clear that this musical style is still with us. Younger artists are taking the place of those whose contributions are explored in his book. The music lives and regenerates itself, sometimes with unexpected additions or changes. As Mr. Capouya brings the epoch, the genre and its creative music-makers to life, he shapes eloquent personality portraits that bring us inside the lives and minds of dozens of individuals we would not otherwise get to know. He accomplishes this admiringly, respectfully and with a sense of wonder. About the author John Capouya is associate professor of journalism and writing at the University of Tampa. His previous book, the biography Gorgeous George: The Outrageous Bad-Boy Wrestler Who Created American Pop Culture, is being adapted into a feature film. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, has written 20 books, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. h s t i t r a philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com CAPOUYA uo r o n d s vidingthe a t b t h a ho r e w h T h er s som pa the m a or st yl T b es dow s tr e and

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ser service. But the phrase does accurately describe the willing spirit of theater folk to continue on, no matter what. Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Irma, some area theaters had to postpone or cancel shows. Venues are regrouping, figuring out what life is like post-Irma and how to best move on. According to its Facebook page, Artis Naples was running on a generator and did not open its administrative offices until Monday, Sept. 25, when Florida Weekly went to press. Initial information indicates that Irma was kind to us and that damage was minimal the site said, but a full inspection had not yet been performed. Scott Saxon, general manager of the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers, reported that the hall lost power for a few days. Theres some minor leaks, nothing major, so the hall came through perfectly fine, he said. So relatively speaking, thankfully everything was good.Gulfshore PlayhouseGulfshore Playhouse in Naples had to cancel its fifth annual New Works Festival, which was already in progress when Irma bore down on the Florida peninsula Sept. 10. That meant grapping with the logistics of getting flights for eight actors and four playwrights who had to return to Washington D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, Ore., and Montana. In addition to cancelling its New Works Festival, the company has cancelled its opening play of the season, Paradise. Chosen from last years New Works Festival, it was supposed to open Oct. 14. We should have been in rehearsals already, said Kristen Coury, company founder and producing artistic director. Additionally, we hadnt received our lumber order and we werent sure we could call back our shop workers (on order to build the set in time). It was like a giant house of cards of all living pieces that couldnt work. Additionally, The Norris Center, where Gulfshore Playhouse holds its plays, didnt have power for a week and a half after the hurricane. While the theater is structurally fine, some rehearsal spaces and other parts of the center have mold. Weve cancelled our education programs as well, Ms. Coury said, because we have nowhere else to do our programs. As of late last week, she added, she was waiting to see when it would be OK to get back into the building. Will we be able to rehearse for the next show, Leading Ladies, she wondered. The comedy by Ken Ludwig is supposed to open Nov. 11, but Ms. Coury would love to start performances a week earlier with $10 previews to give back, for people who need to laugh, she said. In the meanwhile, the theaters administrative offices are hampered by lack of phone and internet service. We saw a significant loss of potential income, an inability to create the art we promised to create, and were not on the other side yet, Ms. Coury said. Its been a rough time for the theater. Every aborted act of creativity is a little death, she said.Laboratory TheaterIn Fort Myers, Annette Trossbach, Laboratory Theater founder and artistic director, had to cancel opening weekend of Sordid Lives. Now that the show is up and running, however, two performances have been added to accommodate ticketholders. Sordid Lives was supposed to open Friday, Sept. 15. Instead, Ms. Trossbach gained permission from playwright Del Shores to have a dress rehearsal open to the public on Sunday, Sept. 17. One week to the day after Irma, an audience of about 50 people came to the free rehearsal. Everyone had a good laugh, Ms. Trossbach said about the appreciative audience. They all really needed to laugh. They were under a lot of stress, and the actors had been under that same stress or evacuating and returning. It made everybody feel better, she added. That was nice. She had been concerned about the theater itself, as they recently purchased the building. I was so worried. After almost nine years, we get to purchase the building, and now this. But they were lucky: The former church-turned-Kiwanis-hall near downtown sustained minimal damage. Hurricane Irma even blew down one crappy fence we had planned to remove anyway. I dont think we actually even lost power, Ms. Trossbach said. Its just incredible.Florida RepFlorida Repertory Theatre had to cancel its previews of Outside Mullingar but still opened as scheduled on Friday, Sept. 22 (see review on page C12). The historic building in downtown Fort Myers suffered no structural damage, according to Jason Parrish, associate director and ensemble member. The only thing we really lost was time. But in theater, time is precious. The four-person cast of Outside Mullingar, along with the shows director and stage manager, evacuated to Gainesville, where the Hippodrome Theatre housed them and gave them space to rehearse. Back in Fort Myers, however, the shop/ set crew lost valuable time, with some evacuating to other parts of the country. Its been complicated getting people back, Mr. Parrish said. Many of our staff had just started, and then had to leave after being here two days. But, he added, We were very lucky and are very much aware of that.TheatreZoneAt press time, TheatreZone in Naples was still unable to determine the full extent of the damage done to its home in the G&L Theatre on the campus of Community School of Naples. Were still waiting for air-conditioning to come on, which will help more, founding Artistic Director Mark Danni said late last week. We had some wind blowing through the hallways that took our photographs off the wall. Some water got in The rug will need to be replaced. Once power returns, he added, Well assess things like soundboards and lightboards. The first show of the season doesnt open until December, but Mr. Danni had scheduled auditions for the season Sept. 9-10. Irma, of course, forced cancellation. Auditions were rescheduled, and the company is accepting video auditions for out-of-state actors who could not reschedule their flights or who had other commitments.Marco PlayersThe Marco Players sent out an email on Sept. 19 to let patrons know the community troupe and its home at Marco Town Center made it through Irma relatively unscathed. We didnt flood or have extensive building damage, so were feeling lucky, the message said. A tree near the post office took out a power line that feeds service to the theater. So, unfortunately, we were without power (until Tuesday, Sept. 19.) Today, we are back in business! Rehearsals are underway for Sex Please, Were Sixty, which runs Oct. 5-Nov. 12.Alliance for the Arts and Theatre ConspiracyWe had some bumps and bruises, but I couldnt help but feel grateful to walk in on Monday morning, the day after Irma, to see the building still standing and no glass broken, Lydia Black, executive director of the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers said. She hadnt been sure what shed see when she returned to the campus. It was a huge relief, she said. Internally, some classrooms had minor flooding, while externally they lost at least eight trees, including five palms and two oaks. The community helped with cleaning debris and trees. Irmas winds moved the You Are Here sculpture on the centers lawn facing McGregor Boulevard off its base. The Foulds Theatre, where Theatre Conspiracy puts on its plays, is fine. The theater was the safest part of the building, Ms. Black said. Staff moved equipment, furnishing and artwork to the elevated stage to be safe from flooding and fortified the doors to the theater with sandbags. The theater also has a reinforced roof. Buyer & Cellar is slated to open Oct. 6. Theatre Conspiracy is offering a buy one, get one 50 percent off deal for tickets to Thursday and Friday night performances. Broadway PalmThe Broadway Palm opened its first show of the season, Groovin: The 60s and 70s Musical on Sept. 7, the Thursday before Irma hit, but then closed the theater and didnt reopen until Friday, Sept. 15. The theater is great, Melissa Vogt, director of sales and marketing for the dinner theater, said. We had some leaks, but nothing major Obviously, we lost a lot of food, but that was it. Knowing theyd probably lose power and phone service, they proactively switched their lines over to their sister venue, The Dutch Apple, in Pennsylvania, so staff there could field calls. We are all good; performances are moving on as scheduled, Ms. Vogt said. Groovin runs through Oct. 7 on the main stage. In the Off-Broadway Palm, The Odd Couple: Female Version plays through Oct. 29. Through both runs, the theater is donating $5 from every ticket to the Irma Relief Fund established by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. The theater wants to help the community in any way it can, Ms. Vogt said. Weve been here for 25 years, and were focused on doing whatever we can to get things back on track for our neighbors and our community, she said. We have ways we can help. Anyone who sees a way the theater can be of help is encouraged to reach out via the Broadway Palms Facebook page or by sending an email to Ms. Vogt at Melissa@broadwaypalm.com.The Naples PlayersAssociate Artistic Director Jessica Walck said the Sugden Community Theatre, home of The Naples Players on Fifth Avenue South, experienced some minor leaks and flooding in the orchestra pit and one rehearsal room. But other than that, were very fortunate, she said. The building held up pretty well. Power was out for a week after Irma, however, and as of press time the theater still didnt have phone or internet service. In this business, thats important, especially when youre trying to sell tickets, Ms. Walck said. The venue has opened its doors to any who might want to enjoy the airconditioning or recharge cell phones and other devices. The theater closed on Tuesday night before the storm, giving staff time to evacuate if they wanted. But that meant they lost two weeks of rehearsal time for She Kills Monsters, scheduled to open on the main stage Oct. 11. It put a dent in our rehearsal process, Ms. Walck said. She added the company has offered its space to other local theaters if needed and it volunteers or other places that need help with recovery and repairs after Irma, including The Naples Zoo and Naples Botanical Garden. We have a healthy volunteer base that likes to help, she said. We have so many great people that help us all the time, why wouldnt we do that for others? Were not just a theater at this point, were a community. Were here for anybody who needs anything, she added.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 *Restrictions apply. See server for full details. COLLECTORS CORNER When digging for thrift shop treasure pays off scott SIMMONS email@example.com It was a weekday afternoon in December and Id been in Palm Beach reporting on this or that story. I had a few minutes to spare, so I stopped in a favorite thrift shop. I wandered past the furniture, through the antiques section and into the housewares department. I circled once and saw nothing that caught my eye. Then I reversed my path and saw a brilliant cobalt blue design peering out from the piles of Christmas garland. I dug and revealed a stack of dinner plates in vibrant primary colors. The porcelain from which they were made clearly was high quality, lightgrabbing in its whiteness. And the design around the rim boasted forests filled with bears, wolves, Russian churches and dachas. I flipped one over to read the mark, which bore the image of a shield. Part of it was in Cyrillic. But it also was in English, marked Made in Russia by Kornilov Brothers. The store clearly thought the set of 10 was special, marking them $155 (even though one had an ancient repair). But I knew imperial Russian pieces have a cachet among collectors. Even if my hunch proved wrong, the plates were attractive enough to be worth the gamble, so I bought. A little research revealed that they were made around 1903 and that a similar set had sold a decade earlier in London for more than $11,000. That meant I was highly unlikely to use them, so it was best to let them go. I spoke with contacts at Heritage Auctions, which has an office in Palm Beach. They encouraged me to consign the plates, reminding me that while the market for imperial Russian porcelain was still strong, they were unlikely to fetch the high prices of a decade earlier. I did just that and they sold this past summer in Dallas for $2,200. That reminds me of my rules for treasure shopping: Always expect the unexpected. Don t be afr aid to dig around the fabulous may be buried in the mundane. Always retrace your steps. You never know what you missed on your first pass. I typically score my best finds on the second pass. HERITAGE AUCTIONSThe Kornilov Brothers plates I found in a thrift store sold at auction this summer for $2,200. Bought: Finders Keepers Estate Buyers Thrift Store, 1228 Hypoluxo Road, Lantana; 561-3602525. Paid: $4 The Skinny: I knew this cup and saucer set was special the moment I saw the Cyrillic text that surrounds it. And when I picked it up to see the Kornilov Brothers mark, complete with a bear, I knew Id hit pay dirt. According to my colleague Fedor Zarkhin, the text on the pieces reads, Eat and drink of the masters goods. Kornilov, founded in St. Petersburg in 1835, made porcelain for the Russian court and also made pieces for export even Tiffany handled Kornilov pieces in the days leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917. This set is very delicate, and there is wear to the gold trim. And, yes, scoring some imperial Russian porcelain always will be my cup of tea. THE FIND:Cup and saucer by Kornilov Brothers

Its also refreshing to know that a show as popular as Criminal Minds takes the time to utilize local artwork in keeping with its designated locale for its set designs, she added. I had a lot of fun working with the Criminal Minds team in their selection of my work, and I cant wait to see how they incorporate it into the show. Ms. Herndon has a masters degree in fiber arts from Southern Illinois University and has been a longtime student of rozome, which she learned from Betsy Sterling Benjamin, one of the countrys foremost practitioners of the kimono dyeing technique. The layering of waxes and dyes on silk a process that can take days allows Ms. Herndon to create colors and depth not possible in other dyeing mediums. Its a wonderful medium for depicting the landscapes of Southwest Florida and The Everglades. Its a pretty fascinating environment that isnt replicated on Earth, the artist said, adding her imagery comes from her own kayaking adventures. Parts of it are from photos I take when Im out, and other parts are from memory, she said. Its all influenced by the environment. NAA is also very proud that not only is Ms. Herndons work being showcased on network television, but she is also an active and productive member. Leigh is very committed to the rozome process, and shes been showing here for at least 15 years and won numerous awards, said curator Jack OBrien. Shes a very educated and committed artist who has extreme dedication shes always very happy to share her process with people and has done many presentations for us. NAA aims to gain more attention for its member artists in exactly the same way it did for Ms. Herndon. Thats one of the things we do as the community art center, said Executive Director Aimee Schlehr. Were working for our artists and trying to get them out in the public and visible so people can see what they do in the community. This is only the second time (a television show) has looked at an artist and chosen them. The Criminal Minds episode featuring Ms. Herndons work airs at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4.

The middle is the best part. The middle of anything is the heart of the thing. Playing at Florida Repertory Theatre through Oct. 22, Outside Mullingar shows how two rural Irish families deal with the middle and with endings. Though a comedy, it opens on the day of a funeral. Aoife (Viki Boyle) has just buried her husband. After the services, she accepts the company of her neighbors, Tony (Martin LaPlatney) and his 42-year-old son, Anthony (Brendan Powers), who live on the farm next to hers. Tony, a crusty old man, lacks social graces or an inner censor, blurting out whatevers on his mind, though his son tries to shush him and change the subject. But Tony is certain of whats coming; theres only one sure future for them. To Anthonys dismay, he predicts Aoifes pending death, as well as his own. And this clear-eyed look into the grave brings up the subject of inheritance. Anthony has given his life to the family farm and is dismayed to discover his father might not leave it to him, the rightful heir, after all. After Anthony walks out of the house to roam the fields, we learn that Aoifes daughter, Rosemary (Rachel Burttram), has had her heart set on Anthony over all these years. He seems oblivious, never making a move. Even his father declares that Anthony will never marry. This quartet of actors inhabits these characters as if they were their own skin. Theyre quirky, idiosyncratic people each with his or her own specific loves, longings, fears and desires. And director Chris Clavelli is careful that theyre not acted with too broad a stroke. Ms. Boyle disappears into her own character and mines comedic gold with her impeccable delivery. Mr. LePlatneys gruff character becomes incredibly tender in a pivotal scene with his son, drawing tears from many in the opening night audience. But the bulk of the play belongs to Ms. Burttram and Mr. Powers, who circle each other warily in the strangest, most inept courtship dance ever, drawing laughter while also tugging on our heartstrings. We cant help but root for this couple to get together. Ms. Burttrams headstrong Rosemary is a woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it. She has a fire in her eyes and a take-no-prisoners attitude. But shes baffled by Anthony. Mr. Powers plays his character as a poetic soul, a man with great depth and heart who doesnt feel as if he fits in this world. He is equally as baffled by Rosemary and some of her comments and questions. John Patrick Shanley (author of the Tony Awardand Pulitzer Prize-winning Doubt and the Oscar-winning Moonstruck) has written, if not the perfect play, something damn near close to it. And in this production, its married with the perfect cast and direction.The play benefits from being staged in such an intimate space, though the actors should take care to project, particularly when performing at either end of the stage or while facing away from half the audience. This is especially important because theyre speaking with Irish accents, which the audience has to decipher. Care has been taken even in the little things. Theres UK dish detergent on the sink of Richard Crowells set, moss on the stones, the sound of rain falling (thanks to sound designer John Kiselica) and even rain-spattered jackets in the outdoor scenes. Theres an electricity, a kind of simultaneous attraction/repulsion magnetism going on with Rosemary and Anthony, as if theyre motioning to one another, come here, while simultaneously telling each other to go away. These two provide such a delicious tension, you can almost hear the hum. Its interesting to note that Mr. Powers and Ms. Burttram, who are husband and wife in real life, first met nine years ago in the very space where Outside Mullingar is being performed when rehearsing for Mr. Shanleys Doubt. (Ms. Burttram played a young nun, Mr. Powers a priest.) Outside Mullingar is genius writing; Mr. Shanley walks that knifes edge between laughter and tears, breaking our hearts while also providing moments of unexpected hilarity. And Mr. Clavelli and cast nail that tone perfectly. While embracing life, it also questions how a person can be here, a part of everything, then suddenly gone, like a fog wiped from a glass. It acknowledges our mortality, while encouraging us to make the most of the time we do have here. It reminds us that life is full of surprises, and some of them are very good indeed. The arts can be healing, and for those of us who weathered Hurricane Irma, Outside Mullingar is a welcome balm. A story of l ove, longing and loss, it provides hope and allows us to laugh in the face of death.

Hilton Naples PUZZLES PET NAMES HOROSCOPESLIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. Youll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youre right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism twixt the two sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, its a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Caution continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Dont let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor.

Friday All Day! CONTRACT BRIDGEThe magic numberBY STEVE BECKERThere are not many activities in life where knowing how to count to 13 is as important as it is in bridge. In fact, its often said that counting to 13 is really the name of the game. Today's hand should provide proof for any doubting Thomases. Declarer won the heart lead with dummy's ace and could count 12 top tricks three in each suit. The 13th would have to come from either diamonds or clubs, and South knew the odds were very good that one suit or the other would provide him with the extra trick he was looking for. But rather than just proceed on the assumption that one of the two suits would divide favorably, South found a way to overcome the possibility that both suits would break badly. His first step was to cash the K-Q of hearts, discarding a diamond from dummy. This revealed that West had started with six hearts. Declarer then led the A-K-Q of clubs, hoping the jack would fall, but discovered instead that West had begun with four clubs to the jack. To complete the picture of Wests hand before he tackled the diamonds, South next cashed the ace of spades and led a spade to the queen, noting that West followed to both spades. With 12 of Wests cards thus fully accounted for, it was now a simple matter to cash the diamond ace, lead dummys ten and, after East played low, let the ten ride. A diamond to the king, followed by a spade to dummys king, allowed South to score the queen of diamonds for his 13th trick. Observe that if South had played any two of his three top diamonds earlier in the hand, as many players might have done, he would not have made the grand slam. By utilizing the magic number 13 from the outset, South wound up plus 2,220 points instead of minus 100.

Stronger (Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson) After losing his legs from just above the knee in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) adapts to a new lifestyle with his girlfriend (Maslany), mother (Richardson), and friends helping him. Its an inspiring true story, and Gyllenhaals performance is Oscar-worthy. Rated R.Patti Cakes **1/2(Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Cathy Moriarty) Patti (Macdonald), an overweight white girl in New Jersey, dreams of becoming a rap star. Macdonald makes a splash in what could be a breakout performance, but the movie is too predictable to be truly memorable. Rated R.The Trip To Spain 1/2(Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny. Not Rated: Adult themes. The Only Living Boy in New York 1/2(Callum Turner, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale) In his early 20s and aimless in New York, Thomas (Turner) sleeps with his fathers (Brosnan) mistress (Beckinsale) and ends up more confused about life. This is the type of indie thats full of high-minded ideas that never amount too much. Rated R.Wind River 1/2(Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille) In a frigid and remote Wyoming territory, a hunter/tracker (Renner) and inexperienced F.B.I. agent (Olsen) search for the murderer of a teenage girl (Asbille). The frostiness of the snow-covered terrain provides a nice texture to the compelling story; too bad the last act is a bit weak. Rated R.Logan Lucky (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) The Logan siblings (Tatum, Driver, Riley Keough) and career criminal Joe Bang (Craig) plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the biggest race of the year. Its a fine return to form for director Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11), and is full of cameos to keep you smiling. Rated PG-13.The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature (Voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Jackie Chan) When a greedy mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to build an amusement park, squirrels Surly (Arnett), Andie (Heigl), and the rest of the animals try to stop the destruction of their home. Its not funny, and its actually insulting to the human race. Rated PGAtomic Blonde (Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella) British Secret Agent Lorraine (Ms. Theron) is sent to Berlin in 1989 to retrieve a list of secret agents thats fallen into the wrong hands. The story is too complex for its own good, but the action scenes are excellent. Rated R.

NoWay to tarnish the memory of an icon, Rebel in the Rye. Weve seen it so many times: Young artist strives to be great in his field, naysayers tell him it cant be done (in this case its the father, Victor Garber). Artist shows promise, so a mentor (Kevin Spacey) is extra tough on him. Social circumstances (World War II) force a deviation from the career, but make him better at his craft. He struggles with more personal and professional obstacles, but ultimately finds great success. This could describe Walt Disney (if it were World War I) or many others, but in Rebel In The Rye it tells the story of author J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult). And the real Salinger, who died in 2010, would be appalled at the unoriginal clich this movie makes his life out to be. Throughout the film Salinger repeatedly says he wants his work to be truthful, not sanitized escapist clichs, yet thats exactly how the film feels. Its as if writer/director Danny Strong created the screenplay by taking Salingers biography and dumping it into a Hollywood formula machine, and this movie is what the machine puked out. Whats more, much is made of how Holden Caulfield, the main character in Salingers seminal The Catcher in the Rye, is based on Salingers life. Those whove read the book know Holden was full of sarcasm and cynicism. Holden is also a character to whom it is easy for many to relate; ironically, its notably more difficult to relate to the arrogant, wealthy, mentally disturbed Salinger depicted here. Who knows perhaps, given that Salinger lived in isolation in New Hampshire for most of his adult life, a mentally disturbed vision of him is a truthful one. Hoult does what he can to make Salinger sympathetic, and to be sure there are moments when your heart goes out to him. But pretentiousness and selfishness are hard characteristics to overlook when trying to like the protagonist. Supporting turns from Spacey, Sarah Paulson, Zoey Deutch and Hope Davis are respectable, but not enough to overcome the films notable flaws. To his credit, Strong provides insight into Salingers writing process, and its in these moments that the film is most fascinating because it shares something we cant learn in a biography page. Its not just his inspiration for Holden that we find appealing, but how Salinger goes about creating him that is equally as interesting. If only the rest of the film were this intriguing. The bottom line with Rebel in the Rye is this: You do not, and cannot, honor the author of arguably the most beloved novel of the 20th century with such a by-the-numbers, conventional biopic. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The Catcher in the Rye has sold more than 65 million copies worldwide and is a staple in high school English curriculums. Per Salingers request the lm rights have never been sold, even though Billy Wilder, Steven Spielberg and other notables have expressed interest.STRONG

(Sorry no substitutions, coupons, or combined with any other offers)One-man Buyer & Cellar set to take stage at Theatre Conspiracy BY TOM HALLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentBarbra Streisands oceanfront Malibu estate consists of four separate structures on three adjoining clifftop properties that overlook the spectacular beaches of Point Dume. But in October, Malibu comes to the Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts when Theatre Conspiracy produces Jonathan Tolins Buyer & Cellar. The play was inspired by Streisands My Passion for Design, the book in which the entertainer chronicles in pictures and prose the rooms she has decorated, the furniture and art she has collected, and the ravishing gardens she has planted on her land on the California coast. In the basement of her Main House (theres also the Mill House, the Barn and Grandmas House) is an entire shopping mall that includes a doll shop, an antique clothing store and a sweets shop (complete with frozen yogurt machine). Jonathan Tolins takes Streisands penchant for collecting one step further as he imagines a man who is hired to work in the basement mall with Babs as his only customer. That man is Alex More, a struggling L.A. actor. Buyer & Cellar tracks his experience working in the megastars basement shops where, one glorious day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. In this one-man tour de force, Florida Reps Education Director Kody C. Jones not only plays Alex More, but half a dozen other characters as well. Its a performance that will have you talking (to yourself and others) for days and weeks to come.

Theyre both dotted with palm trees and beaches, lovely homes, fine restaurants and resorts. Now, their connection is a bridge and a chamber of commerce and the feeling of subtropical tranquility. Actually, until a 1926 hurricane blasted them apart, they were one island. Now, theyre two, but they share a lifestyle and more. Until 1963, the islands could be reached only by boat. But a causeway linked Sanibel to the mainland in 1963 and many things changed. More people moved there and more tourists visited. Many of those residents and visitors are often spotted doing the Sanibel Stoop, walking along an island beach collecting shells. Sanibel is one of the worlds top shelling destinations and home of the Bailey-Mathews National Shell Museum, the only such museum in the country. Sanibel is also home to J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a pristine retreat where more than 220 species of birds can be found. Its all just a convenient drive over a bridge from the mainland.

The bad news: It was overrun with children whose schools were closed for more than two weeks. Also, the lack of utilities in public places and too many shell-shocked people roaming around town inspired us to stick close to home. However, kids need to be fed and aired out, apparently, so we took a trip to probably the only pizza place in Naples we hadnt visited yet, BRK Pizza. The kids stuck to their standard cheese pie while I ordered a medium size of the prosciutto, mushroom and arugula pizza, thinking Id take half home for my beloved, whose work days have become a lot more difficult in the past few weeks. I only brought him a slice though, because the creamy, salty, peppery goodness that materialized just encouraged me to keep going. Sorry, dude. Well go back to BKK Pizza together very soon.

Youre not alone. As Ive noted before in this space, the world of wine is vast and extensive. There are many countries where wine is made (including China, and much of the wine is better than youd think), and more than 200 varieties of grapes to make it from. The wall chart in my office lists 184 varietals, and thats probably not all of them. In fact, Ive been a wine geek for 20-plus years, and people still pull out bottles Ive never heard of. Thats what makes this all so much fun. I recently received a bottle of Bombino Bianco. It was a bit of a surprise, because weve sipped our way through Italy, from Sicily to Milan, and had never encountered it. Its a light, refreshing white from the heel of Italys boot, and well be looking for more of it. Many wine grapes are obscure or unknown for many reasons. First is that some are used in wines that never leave their area of production. In the far eastern reaches of France near the Alps, for instance, they make a wine called vin jaune, or yellow wine, from a grape called Savagnin, which grows only in that region. While its available from several online retailers, I have never seen a vin jaune on a store shelf. And there are many other varietals and regions just like that. Teroldego makes a very interesting Italian red, and Touriga Nacional is a major component of red table wines from Portugal. The situation is complicated even further by the fact that in the Old World, wines are known by their place names instead of by the name of the grape. So youd never know that Sherry, which is a place name (in Spanish its Jerez), is made from a grape called Palomino. Also, many varietals are grown specifically to be used in blends and are rarely, if ever, bottled all by themselves. Good examples are Petit Verdot, a significant component of the Bordeaux blend, and Tannat, which comes primarily from southwestern France but is also grown successfully in Uruguay (of all places). Petit Verdot and Tannat wines can be delicious on their own, but finding them is a bit of a chore. When you come right down to it, this is all part of the real enjoyment of discovering wine. There are always new regions, new varietals and new sensations. So sample widely, and enjoy some of this weeks recommendations. Contrade Malvasia/Chardonnay Puglia 2016 ($10) This wine is 90 percent Malvasia, with a bit of Chardonnay blended in for body. It has a light straw color and white flowers on the nose. Its slightly sweet and refreshing, offering flavors of white flowers and white peach. Our tasting panel deems its a perfect boat wine. WW 86. Damilano Barolo Lecinquevigne 2010 ($30) Im convinced the Nebbiolo winemakers in northern Italy are pushing a lighter style, because most Barolos in the past have been huge, extracted wines. This is a much lighter version, with earth aromas, light tannins and well-balanced dark fruit flavors. WW 89-90. Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2014 ($78) This gorgeous wine has a deep, inky-black color and a nose of black currant. Theres a rich mouthfeel and abundant complex flavors of dark currant, blackberry, cassis and chocolate. Decant it, or give it some time. Your wait will be rewarded. WW 95. Salentin Malbec Primum 2013 ($65) Everyone on our tasting panel liked this one. It has a dark ruby color and flavors of cherry, smoke, brown leather and more all going on in the glass. Its a bit tannic, so it needs some time. WW 91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Many times when I order a glass of wine in a restaurant I get what I think is a skimpy pour. Is there a standard number of ounces I should expect in my glass? Ron F., Pembroke PinesA: In the United States, a beverage portion is determined by how many grams of alcohol it contains. The standard number is 14 grams, which is found in a 12-ounce can of beer or in 5 ounces of table wine. Of course, the amount a particular bar or restaurant pours is determined by its profit margins, but I think we should expect at least a 5-ounce pour. Jerry Greenfield is the Wine Whisperer. Hes also the creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group and the wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CUISINEFrom sushi to steak, Wasabi at Miromar Outlets honors Japanese rootsThe first thing you notice about Wasabi Japanese Steak House & Sushi Lounge in Estero is that it doesnt look like the typical teppanyaki restaurant. Theres not an ink painting or calligraphy scroll in sight. Wasabi has a more modern, less culturally specific dcor. A partial wall of streaming water thats lit cobalt blue separates the teppanyaki or hibachi grill tables from another dining room that holds a drinks bar, a sushi bar and sleek tables and booths. You can occasionally see flashes of grill flames through the liquid screen. The gold metallic flooring, stenciled with silvery lotus-style medallions, is pretty enough to adorn walls. Even the bathrooms are beautifully designed. It isnt just the interior decorating thats pretty; the food is artistically plated, too. Our sushi platter sported charming little sculptures of cherry blossom stems, while a simple katsu plate bore bunnies shaped from grape tomatoes. Wasabi, which opened a few months ago near the Neiman Marcus store at Miromar Outlets, is a sister to Kumo Japanese Steak House in Fort Myers, according to its website. We decided to bypass the teppanyaki tables, as the chefs routines at most places consist of the same gags: the flaming volcano of onion rings, the airborne shrimp caught in the chefs hat, etc. Sampling other parts of the lengthy menu, we were impressed by the specialty sushi rolls we tried as well as the quality of noodles and broth in an udon bowl and the generous portions relative to the prices. All three of us went away with enough leftovers for another meal. The restaurants attention to secondary features such as fresh-tasting sauces, dressings and soups certainly speaks well of its commitment to providing a completely satisfying dining experience. The full bar at Wasabi has some interesting cocktail choices. A cucumber gimlet ($7.95) made with Tanqueray, fresh lime juice and simple syrup was refreshingly light and far less pucker-inducing than those gimlets made with Roses Lime Juice. Thin strips of cucumber made for an elegant garnish. A bottle of Otokoyama Junmai sake ($14.95) had a slightly floral nose and gentle acidity, while the hot green tea ($2.50) was authentically prepared with loose-leaf tea. For appetizers, we waded through the considerable list of sushi rolls, hand rolls and specialty rolls with cheeky names like Hot Lover, Sushi Tart Tart and Fire Starter. We shared a Screaming Orgasm ($11.95), which contained crunchy tempura shrimp wrapped in salmon and topped with spicy krab flakes, tangy ponzu sauce and masago. We liked the interplay of sweet and spicy. The Christmas Tree roll ($12.95) resembled abstract art, with contrasting tiles of white tuna and pink salmon wrapped around diced fish, bright green asparagus and creamy avocado. Four hues of garnishing roe green, black, red and gold added even more ornamental color to the festive Christmas Tree. Certain entrees include soup and salad. The miso soup had a nice tang and velvety texture, while the clear soup contained lots of fresh shaved mushrooms and chopped scallions. Crisp iceberg salads were generously slathered with grated ginger dressing that tingled on the palate. One of the more noteworthy dishes was the chicken udon ($16.95) served in a cast-iron kettle brimming with succulent poached chicken breast, fresh-tasting tender noodles and a pale chicken broth. A soft-cooked egg was nestled amid handfuls of shredded cabbage and thinly sliced mushrooms, celery and scallions, which added body to the soup. Threads of krab provided a pink flourish on top. This bowl had it all flavor, freshness, eye appeal and abundance. The chicken katsu ($14.95), too, was generously portioned. Wide, thin chicken breast cutlets were breaded with panko, fried to a golden crisp and sliced into about two dozen strips that were fanned out alongside a row of lemon slices and a little salad. We enjoyed dipping the juicy chicken strips in tonkatsu sauce (Japanese barbecue sauce made with Worcestershire sauce, mustard and ketchup among other ingredients) as well as yum yum sauce (the spicy mayo-based condiment). You can order hibachi entrees even if you dont sit grill side at Wasabi. The steak version ($19.95) was made with flavorful New York strip, which was cooked medium-rare as requested. A couple of shrimp were tossed in with the chunks of beef, and a heaping pile of tender-crisp carrots, broccoli, onion, zucchini and mushrooms sat alongside, glistening with soy sauce. The fried rice was fine, but it would be nice to have an option of brown rice. Dessert isnt typically a high priority at Japanese restaurants, and based on the rock-solid freezer-flavored mochi ice cream ($5.95) its not worth ending your visit to Wasabi on a sour note. Our only other quibble with our pre-Hurricane Irma dinner was how long it took to receive the check, even though the restaurant was well staffed. Nevertheless, we departed happy to have chosen Wasabi for our last supper together before the storm. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Wasabi Japanese Steak House & Sushi Lounge>> Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $4.95-$12.95; entrees, $8.95-$30.95 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Sushi and other Japanese cuisine >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Mall parking >> Website: www.wasabiestero.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: Miromar Outlets, 10801 Corkscrew Road, Estero; 949-9886 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYA charmingly decorated sushi platter, top left, holds a Screaming Orgasm and Christmas Tree rolls.
