Maybe youve had a bad day at work or a visit to a sick relative brings you down, but the right song at the right time replenishes your spirit and gives you the oomph you need to make it through the day. The healing power of music is a wellknown antidote to the blues, and while it might put a little boogie in your step or help you release the tears sitting at the back of your throat, mental health experts are coming to realize that the emotional benefits of song long outlast the last chord.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYWar story Ed Miller started dating my glamorous neighbor, Kay DeBaker, on a brilliant Colorado afternoon when the sky was so blue you could see every pine tree 25 miles away, where the green carpet of down-mountain forest abruptly ended about 3,000 feet below the summits of the 14,000-footers west of town. The bald peaks themselves, as clean and snow white as the crowns of bleached skulls, sliced into heaven like jagged sharks teeth. It was spring in the Rockies the first time I saw Ed, a time when earth and sky, when frozen and melting, when dry and wet or heat and cold confront each other in a world of unimpeachable promise, all of it anchored to the seemingly ageless order of mountains. As I understood it then, for any of us who tried hard in such a world no attempt would fail. No love would surrender to despair and no right to wrong certainly not if it had anything to do with me, my family or my neighbors. The dazzling Kay lived with her parents. Mr. DeBaker often hailed me from their back garden, where hed offer a hard candy or a tomato or 25 cents for a soda. Hed even buried my favorite cat in that garden so I wouldnt have to see him first, the satin-black Spooky, after the little sucker got run over one night on the road. Spookys sudden death represented a failure in the fabric of my flawless Colorado living, offering me a first-ever lesson in the powerful sting of a broken heart. But I finally forgot about it. It was a few years later when I saw Ed park his s-something Dodge at the curb and stride up the walk that first time a muscular young man with short blond hair and blue eyes grinning like a keyboard with no flats or sharps, bouncing like a coiled spring. Kay came outside to meet him. She was so radiant I could never look at her straight, or even talk to her, without stammering. But Id always imagined shed fall in love with me at some point, and well, I had no idea what. I wasnt sure what came after that. I liked Ed more than I could express and before long, more than Kay. He soon became my friend, waving and laughing whenever he came to see Kay. It was like having a Greek god point to you and say, Hey Roger, Ill be your best pal oh, and dont worry about her. He was unfailingly attentive, even when Kay sought to distract him. Hed always aim his finger pistol at me and pretend to fire. Id display my long combat training as a front-yard soldier, running from one tree to the next and diving into the green grass before coming up from a roll and firing back. Ed would grasp his side and pretend to be shot, even falling once or twice for my benefit. And maybe Kays. Then hed escort Kay to his car, heading out to somewhere over the rainbow. Before long, I learned Ed and Kay would be married. But first, Ed was going away for a few months. Hed joined the United States Army. I could think of nothing Id rather do than go join the United States Army with Ed but only after Kay stood around admiring the two of us heroes for about an hour. Unfortunately, the Army didnt take 11-year-olds. But there was no doubt in my mind if the Germans and Japanese came back or the Sioux or the Apaches or even somebody called the Viet Cong Ed and I could handle it. On a bright autumn afternoon, Ed finally reappeared in the DeBakers driveway as a newly minted graduate of officer candidate school. Hed returned on leave to stay in their basement until he and Kay married in the nearby Bonnie Brae Baptist Church a week later, a wedding my family would attend. Calling me into his little bunk-bed quarters next door, Eds grin was bigger than ever. He told me he was a second lieutenant in the infantry. He wore a white T-shirt over khaki trousers, his muscles showing prominently through the thin cotton, I remember. Then he took me through bayonet drill with a broom for half an hour. After that, I knew the enemy was a goner whether they met Ed or me. Following the wedding, Ed went away to Vietnam. Kay stayed in her parents home for almost a year, working in a nearby dry-goods store. Then one day Ed returned to Colorado. When his car pulled up outside the DeBakers house I ran out, eager to see my old friends cocky grin. Eager for his affirmation and his ready finger pistol. Three men got out of the car with Ed, wearing uniforms. Two supported him, one on each side. Kay came out of the house to meet him, white-faced and unsmiling. Ed wore civilian clothes. He was bent and gray and hollow, shrunken to about 5 feet tall. He carried a cane and couldnt walk by himself. Even with help, he could only stumble. I know he saw me. I waved from about 50 feet away, tentatively. Ed glanced and then looked back at the ground, showing no sign of recognition and hardly acknowledging Kay, who rushed down to meet the cluster of men. For reasons Ive never learned, I never saw Ed again. And now I wonder: Are we going to repeat these needless stories of heartbreak and loss the stories of Korea, Vietnam and Iraq, to name only some elsewhere?

And his reply each time is No. The conversation is short but freighted with anxiety. Lives hang in the balance of its unknowns. This is because my neighbors family is in Puerto Rico; and, of this writing, it has been five days and counting since Hurricane Maria made a direct hit on the island. Some million Puerto Ricans living in Florida share his worries. It is the largest, resident population of Puerto Ricans stateside, second only to that of New Yorks. The population increase of Puerto Ricans in Florida is a long-term, demographic trend. It is not expected to change. They will outnumber Cubans in Florida by 2020. Maria only accelerated that trend. That said, Puerto Rican families are your neighbors, too, and like my friend, they are deeply worried about the fate of their extended families back on the island. We all have reason to share their concern. Hurricane Maria swept away and destroyed the infrastructure providing the islands drinking water, food supply, electric power, fuel distribution, finance mechanisms, health services, educational resources, telecommunications, emergency assistance, transportation systems, highways, housing and public buildings. The storm was an H-bomb delivered by nature. What Maria did not destroy with its 155 mph winds, it ruined with catastrophic flooding. Rivers rose as much as 20 feet from the onslaught of Marias torrential rains. It was the strongest storm to hit the island in over 80 years, the fruition of the islands worst nightmare. On the mainland, we watched fearfully. Catastrophic damage was expected, beyond anything the island had ever experienced ditto for many of its island neighbors. Post-Irma, Floridians knew any scenario that plotted Hurricane Marias landfall in the state held for it similar threats of devastation. No one wished this hurricane on anyone, but we hoped fervently it would go somewhere else. The storm moved westward, deeper into the Caribbean. Its path remained in doubt, Mixed emotions escalated. In Florida, people stopped taking down their storm sh utters. Our optimism weakened. We waited. Meanwhile, Maria advanced along its trajectory toward Puerto Rico. It made a direct hit, pummeling the island into bits, then turned north and eastward, away from Floridas coastline. Still suffering Irmas sting, Floridians offered silent prayers of thanks. No one openly gloated at Floridas good fortune. Its price was someone elses misery and a haunting loss of life. But we surely felt gratitude as Maria passed us by. The hurricane spared the state from the unthinkable two category 4 storms making landfall within a span of time that allows little or no time for preparation or recovery. Puerto Rico wasnt so fortunate. It took hits from both Irma and Maria. The storms left the island in the grip of a humanitarian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. As the crisis unfolds, desperate islanders ask, whence will come their aid? The answer? Its complicated. Puerto Ricos status as a U.S. territory puts it in a political no-mans land. Its priority and the urgency of the islands recovery especially its long-term recovery is subject to Congressional debate and presidential oversight. Because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, it has no voting representatives in Congress, and even though Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, they arent allowed to participate in presidential elections. That may be why fewer than half of Americans even know Puerto Ricans are American citizens. An article in U.S. World by Charles R. Venator-Santiago explains: It wasnt until 1940 that Congress enacted legislation conferring birthright citizenship on persons born in Puerto Rico. persons born in Puerto Rico prior to 1940 could only acquire a naturalized citizenship if their parents were U.S. citizens, anyone born in Puerto Rico after 1940 acquired a U.S. citizenship as a direct result of being born on Puerto Rican soil But herein lies a Catch-22: While Puerto Ricans are officially U.S. citizens, the federal government considers Puerto Rico as a separate and unequal territory that belongs to, but is not a part of, the United States, writes Venator-Santiago. This circumstance creates ambiguity when certitude is demanded. Following natural disasters, Americans expect aid and assistance from their government. But past food fights in Congress over disaster appropriations forewarn that politics and pecking order play an oversized role in determining how much, for what purposes, and for how long communities can expect federal help. Harvey, Irma and Maria will test the nations resolve to do right by communities devastated by these storms. The Miami Herald notes, Texas has 38 votes in Congress and Florida has 29, and if they stick together the majorityRepublican states can be an important voting bloc in a contentious negotiation. Call it fiscal austerity or tough love, the temptation to deny Puerto Rico a full measure of assistance is not, as some might venture, a lesser priority or foreign aid. It is America helping Americans. Floridians know there, but for the grace of God, go we.

Sovereignty is not a dirty wordTo listen to the commentary, Donald Trump used an inappropriate term at the U.N. not just Rocket Man, but sovereignty. It wasnt surprising that liberal analysts freaked out over his nickname for Kim Jong Un and his warning that wed totally destroy Kims country should it become necessary. These lines were calculated to get a reaction, and they did. More interesting was the allergy to Trumps defense of sovereign nations. Brian Williams of MSNBC wondered whether the repeated use of the word sovereignty was a dog whistle. CNNs Jim Sciutto called it a loaded term and a favorite expression of authoritarian leaders. In an otherwise illuminating piece in The Atlantic, Peter Beinart concluded that Trumps address amounted to imperialism. If so, couched in the rhetoric of the mutual respect of nations, its the bestdisguised imperialist manifesto in history. Trumps critics misrepresent the speech and misunderstand the nationalist vision that Trump was setting out. He didnt defend a valueless international relativism. Trump warned that authoritarian powers seek to collapse the values, the systems, and alliances that prevented conflict and tilted the world toward freedom since World War II. He praised the U.S. Constitution as the foundation of peace, prosperity and freedom for the Americans and for countless millions around the globe. The Marshall Plan, he said, was built on the noble idea that the whole world is safer when nations are strong, independent and free. Theres no doubt that theres a tension in Trumps emerging marriage between traditional Republican thinking and his instinctive nationalism. Yet he outlined a few key expectations. He said, repeatedly, that we want nations committed to promoting security, prosperity and peace. And we look for them to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation. Every country that Trump criticized fails one or both of these tests. So, by the way, do Russia and China. Trumps core claim that the nationstate remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition is indubitably correct; it is what makes self-government possible. If the alternative is being governed by an imperial center or transnational authorities, the people of almost every nation will want and fight, if necessary to govern themselves. (See the American Revolution.) The U.N. is hardly an inappropriate forum for advancing these ideas. The Organization, the U.N. charter itself says, is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members. To the extent that the U.N. is now a gathering place for people hoping the nation-state will be eclipsed, its useful to remind them that its not going away. All that said, there were indeed weaknesses in the speech. First, as usual, Trumps bellicose lines stepped on the finer points of his message. Second, sovereignty cant alone bear the weight of being the organizing principle of American foreign policy. Finally, Trumps foreign-policy vision is clearly a work in progress, as he accommodates himself to the American international role he so long considered a rip-off and waste of time. Trump is adjusting to being the head of a sovereign nation that happens to be the leader of the world.

Less than a week ago, prolific actress Julia Louise-Dreyfus announced on Twitter that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, Im the one, she wrote. Any woman (or man 2,500 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in America) who needs treatment or needs guidance with how to deal with it, has a ton of allies in Southwest Florida. October always brings those allies to the forefront with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and all the corresponding events and celebrations of our local survivors and heroes, all of whom aid the fight for awareness and a cure. The far-reaching ACSThe American Cancer Society does its part in Collier and Lee counties to honor survivors with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks. Thousands of walkers, among them hundreds of breast cancer survivors, typically show each year for their morning walks, according to ACS event coordinator Christleen Knaub. We want to honor all of our breast cancer survivors, Ms. Knaub said. We throw them a VIP party and breakfast before the walk. Usually the event brings about three thousand people. While many walkers become runners during the event, Ms. Knaub insists its not a race. Its to honor those youve lost, those who have been diagnosed, and anyone who may be affected by this disease in the future.The cause is dear to her heart, like so many others who get involved; while she was in college, Ms. Knaub lost her grandmother to breast cancer. This is my passion, she said. ACS will hold a number of events in October, including walks at Miromar Outlets on Oct. 14, and at Artis-Naples on Oct. 21.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYbright stars out there, some of whom are just starting to light up their own solar systems of followers, each follower at the same time their own star, however faint, around which others revolve.we are so both and oneful night cannot be so sky sky cannot be so sunful i am through you so i e.e. cummingsWildd at HeartBefore Fort Lauderdale resident Lacey Wildd was an internet-TV star and practicing clairvoyant, who became known as The Human Barbie for her enormous breast implants and numerous other plastic surgeries, she was born Paula Ann Simonds. Her childhood, as she describes it, bears a stark contrast with her public career, a spectacle that helped her earn the money she needed to raise her own six children. Ms. Wildd, 49, has no regrets. Ive lived the life of a rock star, she said. She grew up in impoverished Appalachia in the mountains of West Virginia. She recalled often being barefoot, her family canning food, the good smell of their coal-burning st ove, and gazing out over a bridge at a river that looked like a little tiny vein. Later in her midgrade school years, her family moved to Peoria, Ill., where she didnt fit in. She had not yet learned to read and, due to her psychic abilities, she said, was nicknamed The Witch. People would hold their fingers up like crosses because I could predict things, I knew things, she said. I kind of moved away from there, got blonde hair and big boobs and called myself Lacey. Married before she turned 18, she had two children before leaving her much older husband when she was 21, making ends meet working as a waitress, then as an exotic dancer in Las Vegas. A star at Olympic Gardens, she described making as much as $5,000 a night doing theatrical performances to songs such as Billy Idols White Wedding and literally raking the money off the stage. She got her first boob job shortly before moving there, she said: I had a perfect body but I was flat chested as hell. Under the stage lights, the crowds were blacked out, nearly as anonymous as the viewers who would later watch her on television. The crowds never had faces to me, just the roar, she said. It was definitely where I found my peace and all my ghosts in my closet went away. Later she moved to the southeast coast of Florida following a former Vegas flame, and began to gain popularity on MySpace, then on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. A video of her driving home from the hospital with newly enlarged breasts went viral, she said. I was like, if they like this and this makes me popular, what if I doubled them? She appeared on an episode of MTVs True Life in 2011 called I Have a Hot Mom, the beginning of a string of TV appearances. She continued to get surgeries, she said, all over her body. As a result, people accused her of being one of the fakest people on the planet. I gave the world what they wanted basically, she said. When I got famous I realized that they created Lacey Wildd, not me I cry. I bleed like everyone else. Im not really a hollow doll like they think. Ms. Wildd is planning to move back to where she grew up in West Virginia and open what she calls The Wildd at Heart Wilderness Wellness Center. This December, she plans to have another surgery to make her breasts even larger. And she doesnt need to be psychic to perceive the consequences of destroying our planet, one of her major concerns, but it helps. We are the fleas of the earth, she said. We will be shaken off if we keep destroying her.Solo Travel GirlA globe-traversing traveler recently clad in pink Converse sneakers, Jennifer Hubers SoloTravelGirl.com blog and her related Twitter account @jenniferhuber have gained a loyal readership across the United States and the oceans beyond with more than 11,000 followers. A Buffalo, N.Y., native, Ms. Huber, who describes herself on her blog as just your average forty-somethingyear-old gal living life solo, now lives in North Port and has a day job with Charlotte Countys tourism office. She first got a Twitter account in 2007, the year the iPhone came out, hearing about it from a guy she dated at the time who worked in IT and counterintelligence. She also worked writing articles for online sites such as Yahoo, and the now defunct Suite 101. I was able to go in there and establish myself as an expert in travel, she said. At the same time, she used MySpace and then Twitter to share her personal travel experiences. In 2008, she got a break when Christopher Elliot, a major star in the travel writing universe, named her one of the top 50 Twitter travelers to follow. One day all of a sudden I noticed I was getting all these followers, Ms. Huber said. Someone said, Oh, Christopher Elliot said to follow you. The next year she went to a conference called BlogHer, and experienced that small measure of fame that more and more people with social media accounts have: people who you dont know but who feel like they know you. It was kind of like a little creepy, she said, but at the same time complimentary. Another time she recalled flying to Ontario, Canada, where she was greeted in the lobby of her hotel by an unknown woman who happened to be one of her Twitter followers. From this she learned not to post where shes going to show up. It turns out shes a fantastic person, Ms. Huber said, a school teacher with whom she became friends. That ended up being a good story but Ive heard other bloggers have bad stories, people trying to harass them or something. She has often been recognized and awarded as a boomer generation blogger, though by age she is Generation X. Many of her readers are boomers, she points out, including women who perhaps lost their husband, chose not to marry, or for whatever reason are single, women for whom she offers her own travels as inspiration. As she says on her blog she travels alone, not lonely. Even going out to dinner can be a scary and lonely experience for many people so I like it that I kind of act as an inspiration to them, she said. She prefers Twitter for its brevity. Youve got to use that space wisely, she said. Thats what I like about Twitter. It teaches you to be a better writer or use more visuals because the space is so limited. Shes earned some extra income here and there working for brands such as hotels to get paid by the Tweet or host Twitter parties, and her travel writing has led to a radio show and other writing gigs as well. Mostly, she posts what she wants. Im thankful for the opportunities its afforded me and the people Ive met, she said. I had no idea when I started this where it would lead me. Ive been around the world and had all sorts of experiences. I dont think it could have happened any other way.Thats InappropriateA fan of stand-up and sketch comedy such as SNL, Meredith Masony has been posting funny and honest blogs and videos about her life as a mom and wife on her site, Thats Inappropriate, since 2014. On her related Facebook page she had about 3,000 followers until last May, when her video rant What Moms Really Want on Mothers Day went viral. Since then, her Facebook followers shot up to more than 950,000, along with tens of thousands of Instagram and YouTube followers. What she wanted for Mothers Day was, for instance, To be left the hell alone, said Ms. Masony, 37. Dont ask me for anything. Dont ask me to wipe anybodys butt. On top of that, her husband was on a golf trip and texted her that he might not make it home that day. I was like super peeved, she said. She made the video and posted it. An hour later it had 10,000 views and by the next morning 1,000,000. About a week later, it had been seen more than 10,000,000 times. By the end of the month she had about 80,000 Facebook followers. During 2016, her videos continued to go viral, the most popular one being The Man Cold last September, which got picked up and shared on different platforms, she said, ultimately being watched hundreds of millions of times. Its just insane, she said. That one is basically me berating my husband when hes sick because he acts like a big baby man child. Formerly a middle and high school teacher in Southwest Florida, she says Thats Inappropriate and her social media life have become a full-time job. Her income comes from sponsoring blog posts for products that she uses or tries out and likes such as Hero Clean laundry detergent or Bulletproof coffee. She lives with her husband, Dave, and three children ages 7, 8, and 11, in Charlotte County. He has never appeared in person in her videos thus far, but helps behind the scenes. Its become a running joke that people dont see his face and know him just as the BM, for business manager. Because theres a huge behind the scenes portion to this, she said. That 2 minute video took hours between shooting and editing. Her success as a comedian, blogger and vlogger has come with trolls as well. For the most part men are the ones who have something negative to say, she said, offended when she jokes about her husband. Because Im outspoken and a comedian. Usually shes unfazed by this unless the commentary is violent. One follower told her he would smash me in the face with a frying pan. Another called her a bloated pig. Ive had people call out my personal safety, she said. At that point, you block and report. But if you just want to come to my page and say Im the most useless insignificant piece of poo and nobody would want to marry you, I dont care. Often, too, her loyal followers will RISEFrom page 1 LACEY WILDD INSTAGRAM PHOTO JENNIFER HUBER INSTAGRAM PHOTO MEREDITH MASONY TWITTER PHOTO COURTESY PHOTOJennifer Huber writes about travel activites such as paddle boarding in Charlotte Harbor.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 NEWS A9attack the trolls. And she says, None of that matters. For every nasty comment, there are 100 nice ones of support. Occasionally, she has had fun herself with the trolls, including one who told her she looked like a transvestite parrot. She thanked him for commenting on her video. He responded with a comment about her face: I just want to give you some shaving tips. To which she responded, I always use a sharp blade. Mostly, though, she lets it go. People are bullies, theyre awful, she said. Theyre mean and theyre nasty, but Im not going to let them dictate what I post and what I say. Because you can only control your own response.Growing up in publicMercedes Gutierrez lives in Estero where she grew up, and followed the career path of a model and actor since age 6. Now 19, she has appeared in hundreds of TV and print ads from catalogs such as Kohls and Target to Vogue magazine. But she didnt get her first iPhone until she was 13. During high school, as her image became popular on Instagram @Mercedesg_benz, her mom or momager, Sandra, who has also worked as a model, helped her navigate a newfound portion of fame as well as the business opportunities it presented. Being unusually good looking helped on Instagram, but also inspired resentment. I guess how I feel is, why cant people treat me like its just normal? Ms. Gutierrez said. She adds, Im not famous Its not like Im Kylie Jenner or something. Ms. Jenner is someone she admires. I try to even make some of my selfies look like her, she said. But her experiences have given her a window into what someone like Ms. Jenner could experience, common experiences of fame on a smaller scale. Girls at school were catty. Online, guys would get angry if she didnt reply to messages. Some engaged in internet stalking including one who kept insisting they belonged together. He told me our genetics will be perfect together, just really creepy stuff, she said. At a high school football game when she was a cheerleader, a group of guys showed up in the stands to cheer her, saying they knew her from Instagram. She found that if she posted pictures of herself with a boy it could immediately cost her hundreds of followers. A photographer in California refused to send her the images he had taken of her if she didnt provide nude photos in return. She got in fights with boyfriends about comments other guys made about her pictures online. And last year, she surpassed 50,000 followers on Instagram, an exciting landmark. Companies began asking her to promote their products online, and sending her samples. She got a contract with Bang Energy drinks (blue razz is her favorite flavor) which in part requires her to make YouTube videos featuring their products. For some videos, she has made up to $3,000. She did a short stint as a Univision host, in which she interviewed Miami Dolphins players. Lately, shes been working on becoming an actor, with plans to pursue that career in Atlanta the new L.A., her mom said then later make the leap to Los Angeles. She was recently cast in a film called White Slavery, about drugs and prostitution in Sarasota. She is set to play the daughter of a woman who lives next door to drug pushers. To continue gaining followers, she needs to post pictures and videos every day, she said, some of which can take eight hours to shoot. She worries about her diet, goes to the gym, and tries to find time to hang out with friends. Even though you have a big social media following, its hard to have a social life, she said.A strong connection Like many of us, Cyndee Woolleys experience in social media spans both her personal and professional worlds, from a post near Pikes Peak at the Barr Trail in Colorado with her daughter to her behind-the-scenes work organizing a Tweet Town Hall in Naples during a national health care debate. A marketing and branding expert with C2 Communications, Ms. Woolley has found that when it comes to being a social media influencer or leader, especially within your own community, the numbers game of who has the most followers or friends counts less than the strength and quality of your connection to that audience. I dont think its a count of how many followers you have, I think its a count of the credibility you have in whatever your position is or whatever your market is, she said. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are tools she uses as a communications professional to help clients connect with their audience, such as spreading the word about the annual Farm City BBQ, or about a politicians election campaign. She also uses it to share her own adventures, and to engage people in social activism. For instance, she helped her daughter, Bridget, now 11, create an anti-bullying YouTube video when she was in the third grade. After three years, people are still watching and commenting on it. One of the most powerful personal and professional connections she has made on social media likely saved a mans life. Ms. Woolley is an administrator for the Facebook homepage of the David Lawrence Center in Naples. She has worked with the not-for-profit health care treatment provider for about three years, helping gather support through fundraisers as well as friendraisers. One Monday morning earlier this fall, not long after she had arrived at work, a client of the center made a comment on the homepage, and began to talk about being depressed. I responded to him immediately because I had just gotten to my desk, she said. He continued to interact, talking about being depressed and ultimately saying he was suicidal. And as soon as he said the word suicidal, we engaged a protocol to respond and react, and contact law enforcement, so that we would be able to reach and find him. It took all day to find him but the local law enforcement professionals were able to respond and get him the help he needed. Fortunately, he got the treatment and is still alive. Social media reality checkMs. Woolley pointed to the Collier County Sheriffs Office Facebook posts during Hurricane Irma as another example of social medias power to make strong connections when it counts. Chief Stephanie Spell, a 30-year-veteran of CCSO who heads up the agencys community engagement department, was behind the posts. Social media allowed her to respond in real time to concerned citizens, she said, without going through the usual bureaucratic hassles of a formal press release. On CCSOs Facebook page, Ms. Spells nightly reality checks provided important no-nonsense information and common sense safety messages for residents, with her own brand of deadpan humor. Her posts were viewed more than two million times during the week after the storm, gaining the department a flood of new followers online as well. One comment from Shirley R. on September 16 read, Thank you to whoever is writing these updates, adding, I have yet to find any grammar errors of the kind that are so common on Facebook posts. Kudos! Just four minutes later, at 4:40 p.m., came the reply from Ms. Spell for CCSO: Chief Spell thinks she was an English teacher in another life. She wasnt. Although Chief Spells Irma posts were a high-water mark in engagement by the numbers, CCSO has developed a robust, award-winning social media platform over the past decade. Weve really embraced social media as a great way to communicate with our residents, Chief Spell said. (Sheriff Kevin Rambosk) has really empowered us to communicate as transparently and as quickly as we can. So, theres very little bureaucracy that has to happen for something to be posted.

When it comes to personalities, lets make things easier. Can we really remember labels like sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic? How about being able to connect to just a color: gold, orange, green or blue? I like that much better its simple. Previous researchers, such as Hippocrates, Carl Jung, Myers and Briggs and David Keirsey, came up with an analysis of how to characterize individuals personalities. Wonderful work, but complicated to remember. Then Don Lowry decides to relate everyone to four colors thats easy to remember and True Colors was born. This system uses four primary colors to designate behavioral and personality types. True Colors takes the concept of personality theory and turns it into a userfriendly, practical tool used to foster self understanding, productive relationships and team/leadership building. Why would organizations be interested in something that seems on the one hand trivial and common sense, yet opens the doors to many aspects of leadership, team building and simple self-analysis? Personality assessment is not for the weak at heart and does not discriminate on the basis of education or status level. Thats the very beauty of it its applicable to everyone and all can learn something from it if they have an open mind and a desire to understand themselves and others. If we understand ourselves a little better, then engaging with those who are similar or different can lead to deeper communication and improved understanding. This means downplaying the barriers of our differences, but understanding why we see and feel things the way we do. Its not rocket-science; its the plain truth. We all have personalities that are unique to ourselves, so the more we can recognize the quirks that make us function and those that make us go off the deep end, the more we can improve our ability to be strong leaders, communicators, role-models and genuine people. Which color do you fall under most frequently? Or is it a combination of them? Gold: Needs to be prepared, detailoriented, sense of security, punctual, predictable, precise, loyal and true. Needs policies, procedures and rules and thrives in a formal environment. Orange: Energetic, playful, risk-taker, tests the limits, need for mobility, thrives on competition, impulsive, spontaneous and thrives in an informal environment. Green: Constantly asking why?, intellectual, complex, abstract, needs independence, explores all facets before making a decision and approaches interpersonal relationships in a logical manner. Blue: Mediator, caretakers, strong sense of spirituality and romance, sensitive to the needs of others by motivating and encouraging them, cooperative rather than competitive, has emotions/feelings and are the true romantics. Are you cringing at the thought of one, and declaring Thats me in another? Or are you reading between the lines and thinking that it depends on the situation, the person, the time in my life and all the other factors that come into play? For me, there is one color that just stands out and embraces me with a bear hug and another color that makes the hair on the back of my neck go up. Im pretty set in my personality and have been since I was young, just as many of you, I suspect. But others may have gone through a metamorphosis of being one color, then another, or a combination of several. The beauty of all of this is: THERE IS NO WRONG ANSWER. You cannot get your personality wrong it just is what it is. If only my kindergarten and ninth grade math instructors knew that, I might have approached school differently.

The mischievous runaway farm animal was seen on surveillance video entering the lobby of the hotel and wandering the halls, presumably to rest a bit, said police. Peter Blash, No. 448s owner, said the goat jumped a 5-foot-high fence and took off like a criminal. However, Blash said, I had one that made it all the way to Sturbridge. Just north of Benton, Kan., a rancher posted signs promising a reward to anyone who could help him find his missing longhorn cow, Mercedes. The Wichita Eagle reported the 3-year-old black-andwhite bovine went missing on Sept. 11 during Cross Trails, a weekly cowboy church service at Greg Johnsons Prairie Rose Ranch. Friends, neighbors and family have searched high and low for Mercedes, recognizable by her 5-foot-wide horns, but the only sighting of her has been near the El Dorado, Kan., Walmart, about 10 miles away. Johnson says this isnt the first time shes run off: She is more of a loner. Questionable judgmentCoolidge, Ariz., resident Victor Pratt boasts that hes played with snakes his whole life. So when a rattlesnake slithered by during a family party at a nearby lake on Sept. 7, Pratt grabbed the viper and showed the kids how to catch it and I was playing with it like little kids do. I wasnt thinking. I was showing off, he admitted to FOX 10 News. The rattler apparently didnt want to play along and bit Pratt on his face and neck. Pratts sons quickly drove him to a nearby emergency room, and he was later airlifted to Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix, where Dr. Steven Curry treated him. There is a 100 percent chance he would have died if hed not made it to the hospital within minutes, Curry noted. Pratt remained unconscious for several days. He told reporters he had learned his lesson and would not play with rattlesnakes again. Oops A family in Coventry, England, are quite mortified after calling the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in September to rescue a lizard peeking from underneath a bed in their home. But when officer Vic Hurr arrived at the home, she discovered the lizard was not a lizard at all, it was a pink stripy sock. The dirty imposter sock, about 7 inches long and 2 inches wide, wasnt moving, Hurr noted. I think the family eventually saw the funny side, an RSPCA spokeswoman told the Independent. The sock had obviously been there quite a while. It was a typical teenagers bedroom, I suppose. The Caving Club at Indiana University explored Sullivan Cave in southern Indiana on Sept. 17, but when they headed back to campus, they forgot one thing: a 19-year-old freshman physics major who had become separated from the group and was trapped behind a locked gate. When the club president realized two days later that a caver had been left behind, members rushed back to save him. You could tell they were pretty shaken up, the caver told the Indiana Daily Student. They did near kill me. The student reported he licked moisture off the cave walls during the ordeal and wrote goodbye letters to his family on his iPhone until the battery died. The weird apocalypseCable television viewers in Orange County, California, were stunned on the morning of Sept. 21 when an ominous message accompanied by an Emergency Alert banner flashed on the screen. At increased volume, a mans voice boomed: Realize this, extremely violent times will come, said viewer Stacy Laflamme of Lake Forest, who was watching HGTV on the Cox Communications cable system. Spectrum customers also received the alert. The warning seemed especially timely given that doomsday writer David Meade had predicted the end of the world as we know it to occur two days later. Laflamme told the Orange County Register the message sounded like a radio broadcast coming through the television. Dennis Johnson, a spokesman for Spectrum, said: We have confirmed that we were fed an incorrect audio file, but neither company could determine where the audio had come from. Bright ideas Kevin Michael Cook, 24, of New Castle, Pa., was too drunk to drive on Sept. 3, so he enlisted the help of an 8-year-old girl. WPXI News reports the girl told Darlington Township police that Cook, a family friend, ordered her into a car at her grandmothers house and forced her to drive him toward East Palestine, Ohio. The car stopped after nearly wrecking twice, as bystanders called 911. Police tried to give Cook a sobriety test, but he was too impaired to finish it. He was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, driving under the influence and driving without a license. Prosecutors in Geneva, Switzerland, are looking for the culprits who flushed about $100,000 in 500-euro notes down four toilets in the city in May one in the vault area of the UBS Bank, and the other three in nearby bistros. While neither throwing money away nor blocking a toilet is a crime, Vincent Derouand of the Geneva Prosecutors Office told the Tribune de Geneve, we want to be sure of the origin of the money. The cash was confiscated during the investigation, but Derouand said there was no immediate reason to think it was dirty money.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 A15 Naples 239-594-7636 Bonita Springs 239-992-5666 The Cancer Alliance of Naples Pink Party returns to Physicians Regional BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comA number of local organizations canceled breast cancer awareness events this October thanks to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The Cancer Alliance of Naples felt the pressure to make sure their annual Pink Party stayed alive. The show must go on, said Physicians Regional Healthcare System spokeswoman Lynn Ciecierski. The sixth annual Pink Party will continue as scheduled on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. With the goal of raising awareness for breast cancer and womens health, CAN puts on a party featuring fantastic food, drinks, giveaways and entertainment, along with a dizzying display of Southwest Floridas many health care providers and physicians dedicated to helping men and women become more educated about breast cancer. Physicians Regional is hosting the event for the second year in a row. Last year the event raised over $4,000 for CAN through the silent auction. Auction items included items from the areas best restaurants, retail stores, and women-focused services. A few of the 2016 items included gifts from the Naples Zoo, the Everblades, Flemings, Giovannis, Coopers Hawk, Charlie McDonald Photography, Island Nails, Laser Lounge, Raw Hair Organic Salon, Shady & Katie, Tru Glo med spa, Paragon Movies, Trader Joes, Lilly Pulitzer, Groupie Booth, Williams Sonoma, Swan River, Seasons 52, among others. CAN is devoted to helping children and adults with cancer by providing financial aid, support, education, and resources, Ms. Ciecierski said. The organization uses funds raised from the Pink Party silent auction to assist with rent, mortgage, utility and car payments, and other non-medical bills, as well as purchase food and gas gift cards, so those who are in treatment or recovery for cancer can concentrate on getting well. Breast cancer awareness is just one of the many initiatives CAN takes on each year. The Alliance is devoted to helping local children and families touched by cancer by providing financial aid, support, education and information resources. The nonprofit has helped more than 1,200 families with $2.6 million in nonmedical financial aid and other support since 2002. CAN also offers free group counseling, free nutrition programs, college scholarships for graduating seniors who have had cancer or whose parents or siblings have cancer, and an extensive library for anyone in the community to use.

Plenty of new 2018 cars and trucks are beginning to arrive. But what about the ones being replaced? As new models begin to be promoted, dealers want to close the books on the 2017 ones even if were months away from the new year. So now also is the time to get the largest discounts on cars that are being redesigned or wont be around in 2018. Here are five cars that will be significantly restyled, as well as five that will be completely discontinued. These have the potential for the best deals because dealers want them gone ASAP. Ford Expedition/Lincoln Navigator Cheap gas means SUVs and crossovers are hot right now. So Ford and Lincoln dealers are ready to have the spotlight on fresh product.

WHEN YOURE READY TORESTORE YOUR WEVE GOT YOU COVERED. any toys. Ford is already offering nice discounts on the 2017 car, and the dealer is probably happy to negotiate even more off the price for someone interested in the last few on the lot. Toyota Camry These sedans have earned a reputation for being tough as nails, but not always the most exciting. The incoming 2018 car is consuming the limelight with its new emphasis on personality. But for those who see their vehicles as appliances, the Toyota dealer would be very happy to knock some cash off the sticker price of the still-new 2017 sedans. Lexus LS Much like the Camry, the outgoing Lexus LS is not the most exciting machine. Of course, who needs to be captivating when providing one of the most solid luxury experience around? Still, thats not stopping Lexus from currently knocking off thousands of dollars just for walking in the door. Chevrolet Equinox The new 2018 Equinox is a sleeker machine with a richer interior. Still, the 2017 model is solid and well equipped, and will be surprisingly inexpensive for the amount features being offered. Honda Accord Honda is not known for offering the deepest discounts, and by the time it announced the 2018 Accord, it was getting its distribution network ready for the car. That leaves only a few 2017 cars out there, but nows the best time for a value price on those. As a special note, there will be no Accord coupe in 2018, so two-door fans might be especially motivated. Hyundai Azera With the standalone Genesis brand trying to sell the larger cars in the Hyundai family, the Azera has been canceled for the 2018 model year. But a quiet, comfortable, spacious and loaded sedan at a fair price always has appeal. And canceling the Azera means theres an opportunity to get even more value. Jeep Patriot The Patriot is being absorbed into the new 2018 Compass line. So, while there will be discounts on the 2017 Jeep Compass, the dead-end Patriot is getting hefty rebates. Its a little bit small; it feels a little bit cheap; but it has the charisma of unmistakably being a Jeep. Mitsubishi Lancer The soondeparted car is sporty but a bit dated. However, for rock-bottom prices on a decent sedan, the Lancer should be a good bet. Buick Verano Its tough to sell small upper-market sedans in an SUV/ crossover culture, and so the Verano is going away in 2018. But for those who were going to buy a basic small sedan, the last of the Veranos might also now be within budget. Volkswagen Touareg This was developed when Volkswagen wanted to be a direct competitor to Mercedes. Thus, its a solid and luxurious crossover. And for those who liked it but thought it was too expensive, now is probably the time to get deals as the Touareg yields to the larger and cheaper Volkswagen Atlas. There are some redesigned and canceled cars that didnt make our list. After all, well certainly miss the Dodge SRT Viper in 2018, but its a specialty vehicle that will never be in the bargain basement. And BMW likely wont discount the outgoing X3 as deeply as some of the less luxurious automakers. But any time there is a change with a vehicle lineup, theres also an opportunity for saving money. So before you go shopping this fall, know all the cars that are ripe for the best deals.

P ET T A LESGo, dogs! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIts football season, and everywhere you turn there are bulldogs and huskies representing college sports teams. Bulldogs seem to be the clear favorite, serving as mascots for Butler, Georgetown, University of Georgia, Gonzaga, Yale and many more schools, at least 42 altogether. Yale, credited with being the first university to have a mascot, has been repped by a bulldog since 1889. Because of concerns about breed health, though, the college switched this year from the AKC-registered bulldog to a variety known as the Olde English Bulldogge, thought to have less extreme physical characteristics. Following a long line of dogs named Handsome Dan, the current mascot is named Walter after Yales Walter Camp, known as the father of American football. The husky is another popular canine mascot. Colleges claiming the husky as a symbol include University of Connecticut, University of Southern Maine, Michigan Tech, Northeastern, Northern Illinois University, St. Cloud State University in Minnesota and University of Washington. Northeastern adopted the husky as its mascot in 1927 in honor of the sled dogs Togo and Balto being among the best known and their drivers who delivered life-saving diphtheria vaccine to Nome, Alaska, through near-blizzard conditions. While UConns Jonathan, named after Jonathan Trumbull, Connecticuts last colonial and first state governor, is a Siberian husky, the term husky doesnt always refer to that breed. Dubs, the University of Washington mascot, is actually an Alaskan malamute. But what about other dog breeds? Do they get a shot at being big dog on campus? Heres a look at some of the lesser known or more unusual canine college mascots. The saluki, a sleek and speedy sighthound, has been the mascot at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale since 1951. Salukis are believed to be one of the most ancient types of dogs, and thats how they became SIUs mascot, says Saluki breeder and all-around dog expert Caroline Coile. That area of Southern Illinois is known as Little Egypt, she says, so they wanted an Egyptian mascot, hence the saluki, an Egyptian dog. They seem like a great mascot for a track team not so much for a football team.Pint, a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever, isnt the official UC Davis mascot, but he retrieves kicking tees off the field at Aggie home games.

A bluetick coonhound, Smokey (the 10th of that name), leads the University of Tennessees Volunteers onto the football field at home games and howls when they score. The first mascot, Blue Smokey, won his place in 1953 when he barked and howled on hearing his name called as students voted for their favorite dog. North Carolina State University teams are known as the Wolfpack, but a live wolf as a mascot wasnt a good option. Instead, they found a dog that resembled a wolf. Tuffy, who goes by the name Wave at home, is a tamaskan, a type of dog first bred in Finland by blending German shepherds, Alaskan malamutes and Siberian huskies. Goldie the golden retriever does more than promote school spirit for University of Tulsas Hurricanes. This Golden Furricane is a therapy dog who makes the rounds among stressed students during finals, visits alums at retirement homes and supports local pet adoption events. Shes an athlete herself, competing in dock diving and, of course, being a natural at tail-gating. A Scottish terrier named what else? Scotty is the mascot for Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, founded by Scottish robber baron turned philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. When Scottys off duty, she goes by Maggie, after Carnegies mother, Margaret Morrison Carnegie. Pint is a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever who retrieves the kickoff tees at University of California, Davis, football games. In his off-hours, hes a spokesdog for the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. At Texas A&M, Reveille, or Miss Rev, is the ninth rough collie to serve as the schools mascot and was recently named No. 1 dog mascot in college football by the NCAA. Go, team!

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 costeffectiveness 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 followup postcards each month for four months to all patients identified as at-risk, 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 suicidefocused 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 department-based 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 followup 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.

Ninth annual SWFL Pride Festival set for Alliance of the ArtsIts a celebration of diversity. And this years SWFL Pride Festival also will be a celebration of longevity its ninth annual installment of the event, set for Oct. 7 at the Alliance of the Arts in Fort Myers. According to organizers, SWFL Pride is a family-friendly event, with a vendor market that will include service organizations, local and national community organizations, social organizations, area nonprofits, supportive religious organizations, games and activities, shopping, as well as food and drinks. It wouldnt be a pride festival without entertainment. The amphitheater stage will be filled with performances by touring artist Kelly Neff, B103.9's DJ Mad Mel, DJ Kooshie, DJ Ajar and local drag queens and kings. The festivities dont end Saturday. From 2 to 6 p.m. Oct. 8, Pride-SWFL will sponsor a tea dance at Celsius, 2213 Main St., in downtown Fort Myers. The theme for this years tea dance coincides with the theme for SWFL Pride in a celebration of sunny Florida and recognition of the pride that fills each years annual commemoration, through a coming together in an expression of resilience. There will be a cash bar, drag show and featured DJs such as DJ Mad Mel, DJ Kooshie and DJ Ajar. Suggested donation of $5 is requested. Pride-SWFL was created in August 2009 from a grassroots effort to put on a community festival to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. Pride-SWFL started with about 20 people meeting in living rooms and representing local businesses, clubs, organizations and colleges. Within six weeks, with no money, little experience and only a few posters to get the word out, they put together and hosted a four-hour festival that included a stage packed with entertainment and more than 30 participating vendors. Last year, SWFL Pride introduced the Goldberg Award as a celebration of the strength of the individuals who stand against adversity and fight for the basic human and civil rights that should be afforded to all. Pride-SWFL will continue this tradition by recognizing the new recipient of this award at this year's SWFL Pride. This years SWFL Pride Festival and vendor marketplace will be held from noon to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 7 on the grounds of the Alliance of the Arts, located at 10091 McGregor Blvd., off Colonial Boulevard, in Fort Myers. There is a suggested donation of $5. For information, visit www.prideswfl.com.

CALL NOW TO EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE! Welcome! Ms. Spencer helps local seniors process the peaks and valleys of their lives by engaging them with the people who now surround them when many of their loved ones have passed or are far away. Vamos a empezar con una cancion muy famoso, Ms. Spencer said as the session began. Were going to begin with a very famous song, se llama Cielito Lindo. A ring of about 20 seniors, most Spanish speaking, breaks into applause as Ms. Spencer dressed her face in a warm and enthusiastic smile. It doesnt matter if we dont know the words, its more important to be together and breathe together. Ms. Spencer continued encouraging the crowd with a mixture of English and Spanish, occasionally poking fun at her own imperfect Castilian and gaining praise for her facility in turn. Characters who only a few minutes prior trudged in perked up as she strummed the opening chords. As their voices rise to the popular refrain, ay, ay, ay, ay, canta no llore, everyone seems boosted by the songs message: dont cry, because were singing together and it will cheer you up. In time to the swaying phrases of the popular Mexican song, everyone shakes their maracas and tambourines, or maybe just their shoulders. The session comes at an opportune time for the centers members, said activities and volunteer coordinator Tery Pupo-Delgado. Many live by themselves and suffer from varying degrees of isolation and with the center closed on Fridays and Saturdays, they have lots of time to sink into depression. An uplifting activity, however, helps them start the weekend on a high note. Sometimes they feel so down, especially on Fridays, its scary, she said. This lifts their spirits. The center focuses on Golden Gate City seniors who live at or below the poverty live or on fixed incomes, providing them with a variety of resources like job training through AARP, a food pantry, hot lunches each weekday, health screenings and assessments and most importantly, social support. By the time a person reaches their sunset years, Ms. Pupo said, they have accumulated many experiences particularly losses that still feel as fresh as the day their loved one died. With the center and particularly through the music program, members have a new opportunity to share memories with friends all over again and perhaps gain a different perspective on their experience. Now with warmed voices, Ms. Spencer announced that days theme: love. To kick off a series of love songs, she starts with Juan Gabriels Amor Eterno. Written after his mothers death, Gabriels song conveys the pain of continuing to love someone who is gone. The mood in the group became solemn and the voices low while two women embraced and comforted each other. One had tears in her eyes while she sang. I was reminded of my oldest son. He died of cancer when he was eleven, Enriqueta Marquez said in Spanish. It was 49 years ago but it feels like it just happened. An eternal love says a lot when I hear those words. The psychological community has amassed a veritable canon in recent years of studies about the emotional, physical and mental benefits of music, particularly among seniors. Its most tangible applications ar e for people who suffer from a variety of gerontological conditions like Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases, but it also boosts mood, recalls memories and helps the elderly positively process experiences from the years behind them. Its a very important service to offer these seniors, many of whom are low-income immigrants for whom English is at best a second language. They are often isolated from not only their communities and loved ones, but also their home cultures. Luz Costa, a compact firecracker dressed in purple, frequently danced and cheered as the program progressed We are so proud to have you here, she told Ms. Spencer at the end of a gently energetic rendition of Shake, Rattle & Roll. A high battery is healthy. Ms. Costa is a Colombian widow who moved to Naples after her husband died in 2000. When she was married, Ms. Costa lived in 11 countries with Claudio, who was a competitive bicycle coach. I was living with him a very different life, she said, an active life where she was a performer in a troupe specializing in the traditional Spanish entertainment, zarzuela. Eventually, that life wound down and the couple settled in Miami until Claudios death. The idea for a move to Naples from Miami came to her in a dream and when she told him about it as he was dying, Claudio encouraged her to do it. He was a very important person in my life and he was a very mystical person, she said. And this experience with Natalie is mental, physical and spiritual and it makes me remember when I was young. She had a good feeling about Natalies work after their first session earlier this year. I already had an idea that were going to have good times with her, she said at the sessions conclusion. She brings our mood up and its important, especially at this age. Were not working anymore and we have more time to think about ourselves. In this place, it is wonderful medicine. For a more practical application, Cypress Cove in Fort Myers has incorporated a holistic music program throughout its center for residents with the help of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys music therapy department. Music permeates practically every activity where seniors can sing, listen and even see music through a variety of mediums.

WE ARE OPEN!!!important component, however, is a program called iN2l, or Its Never 2 Late. As a suite of technologically driven therapy programs to address memory care, the musical component is incorporated into each residents day but has particular applications for patients with Alzheimers disease or age-related dementia. From sing-alongs to musical accompaniment during art classes or meals even water features that move to musical beats patients are more engaged with each other and their surroundings when the community uses music throughout the day. By boosting cognitive and social functioning, music has transformed the residents experiences of their declining years. iN2L has been a lifesaver, said Carleigh Racinski, the program manager The Cottages. I would say if you want to make a resident with dementia happy, give them music or ice cream. I feel a lot more concentration among them, so if I play it during an art program or exercise, I see more engagement and concentration. The residences hospice patients also benefit from the music therapy program. Studies show there is a notable increase in length of life among hospice residents in nursing homes who used music therapy and that music therapists visit more frequently than social workers or nurses. They were also the only professionals to consistently address the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of their dying patients. Using CD players at Cypress Cove, pa tients at the end of life are able to decrease their agitation levels, which also allows staff to more efficiently attend to their nursing. With end-of-life (patients), theyre usually in their bed or room so we provide CD players with therapeutic music to provide comfort and peace, said Scott Lendh, activities coordinator for The Lodge at Cypress Cove. We do it for residents with dementia and it really helps to curb behaviors, like trying to get in and out of their wheelchair, but the (music) takes them into a different sphere. Whatever their circumstances, a regular dose of music exponentially improves seniors quality of life at a time when studies show a tendency for it to worsen thanks to a decline in health, resources and social ties. It brings the elderly together, improves memory and movement and generally just makes their life better. As Ms. Costa said, its wonderful medicine.

Their enthusiasm for each dish on the menu (from handmade pastas and pizzas to grilled meats and fish and hard-to-resist homemade desserts like tiramisu) cant be overlooked. But its not just the all-Italian wait staffs fervor for Italian cuisine and knack for reeling in diners that makes them such a hit. They put on a show singing, dancing and occasionally waving napkins in the air until customers find themselves joining in. Not all of the music is Italian. Contemporary hits like Despacito and Shape of You get good play, too. Its hard not to get caught up in the beat, the fun. Welcome to Espaola Way. Espaola Way, between 14th and 16 streets from Washington to Drexel Avenues, was the first commercial street in all of Miami Beach. The city just spent $2.5 million to restore the street and its vibe to the artist village it was in the 1920s. Hosteria Romana is just one of 16 locally owned restaurants and specialty boutiques lining the pedestrian-only street. Another not-to-be missed attraction on the street is the flamenco show at Tapas y Tintos (www.tapasytintos. com) Thursday through Sunday nights. We loved it. Other culinary hits for us on Espaola Way included breakfast at Havana 1957 (www.havana1957.com), a traditional Cuban restaurant that transports diners to old Cuba; dinner at Mercato della Pesceria (www.mercatodellapescheria.com), a market-style restaurant that features several culinary stations, including a fish market, meat market, and pasta-making station; and enjoying gelato and Melani Gelateria (www.milanigelateria.com). On our next trip, we look forward to checking out Time Out Market, a few blocks away on Drexel Avenue. Its due to open early next year. Food from the Miamis best restaurants, top chefs and stunning local works of art will be the draw. Unlike much of Miami Beachs architecture in the city, which is Art Deco, Espaola Way was designed in a Mediterranean Revival style. The place to stay is El Paseo Hotel, a boutique property reopened this year after a $7 million renovation. A few blocks away from trendy Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road, the budget-friendly hotel has 71 rooms that stretch across seven villas. Elements of Spanish, Moroccan, Italian and French architecture are prominent throughout, and includes tile roofs, rounded archways and European inspired balconies. Rooms sport gauzy white curtains, ocean hues and bold pops of color intertwined with pottery, books, blankets and framed vintage photos. An attentive staff checks in with guests daily to make certain all needs are met (need another blanket? Honor bar need re-stocking?). The hotels beach club is just three blocks away. Complimentary wine is served during happy hour in the hotels second floor library Mondays through Thursdays. We take pride in our authentic and unpretentious service that allows us to foster relationships with our guests while creating unique and tailored memories, says general manager Luis Soto. A unique way to save some of those memories is offered, too, since guests have complimentary use of Spectacles, sunglasses with an integrated video camera that connect directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or WiFi and transfer images onto the users app. The El Paseo never lost power during Hurricane Irma. And theres always something new in the neighborhood. Yoga a la Espaola started on Saturday mornings last month and is already a hit. The destination had its first Noche de Coche, a monthly event geared towards families with small children who parade down the street in strollers, wagons and tri-cycles. And Papo Caf opened in September. (Cafe mocha, anyone?). Cant wait to get back. It was like going to Spain or Italy without boarding a plane. A balcony view of Espaola Way between 14th and 16th Street from Washington to Drexel avenues in Miami Beach. Espanola Way, between 14th and 15th streets from Washington to Drexel avenues, was built as an artists colony in the 1920s with a creative vibe that mirrored Greenwich Village in New York and Montmartre (artists quarter) in Paris. The street was later discovered by Hollywood and appeared in numerous lms, including Chains of Gold with John Travolta and The Birdcage with Robin Williams, as well as music videos with Elton John, Pitbull and appearances on Miami Vice. www.miamiandbeaches.com/ places-to-see/south-beach-art-deco-district/ espanola-way. El Paseo Hotel, 405 Espaola Way, Miami Beach. The seven, twoand three-story villas that comprise the hotel have always been a bohemians dream. Originally built in 1925 as apartment buildings in the Mediterranean Revival style, the hotel appealed to Cuban artists who came to live in Miami Beach in the 1950s and s. For 25 years, the building was known as the Espaola Way Art Center, housing such notable artists as Kenny Scharf, Miralda and Craig Coleman. Desi Arnaz and Al Capone spent many days on Espaola Way. Some of the rooms have full-service kitchens. 305-400-0767, www.elpaseohotel.com. Flamenco shows are offered at Tapas y Tintos on Espaola Way Thursday through Sunday nights. Guests at the El Paseo Hotel have complimentary use of Spectacles, new sunglasses with an integrated video camera that connect directly to Snapchat.

BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comF NOTHING ELSE, A GOOD HURRICANE SHOULD make you a good researcher. A chorus of voices from longtime licensed and established tradesmen and women all offer roughly the same advice in both DOs and DONTs for hurricane recovery: Dont hire people coming to the door. Dont hire people working for cash or asking for a lot of money up front. Dont hire out-of-region-or-state crews or businesses, and dont fail to research a business by checking for licenses, insurance and referrals. Those are the DONTs. So what are the Dos the right steps to take if you need a new roof, a new floor or walls, kitchens, decks, pools or docks, or for that matter new office or commercial space? Do ask the right questions, right up front. If youre working with a contractor, ask for referrals, ask how long theyve been in business, do they have workmens comp, how much of the project is done by subcontractors, does the company require a big deposit, whats the warranty on the projects or products being purchased, and is the business locally owned? advises Tony Leopardi, owner of the widely respected Cornerstone Builders of Southwest Florida, a family business based in Lee County. Another thing you should do is check anybody you hire with the Better Business Bureau and the state website you can go to www.sunbiz.org, and that will take you right to the s tate website for the Division of Corporations. You punch in the guys name and check his records, Mr. Leopardi added.SEE BURNED, A29 IWhen seeking contractors, get information first Dont getCOURTESY PHOTOCornerstone Builders of Southwest Florida is a repected family business based in Lee County.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 BUSINESS A29 MONEY & INVESTINGBankruptcy highlights changes in diamond industryExelco NV recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Was this some massive conglomerate going down in flames? In the filing, the company listed its assets as a meager $10 to $50 million. So what is so special about this bankruptcy filing? Exelco was one of the most storied and prominent wholesaler and distributor of diamonds in the world. Its financial implosion puts a spotlight on the side of the diamond business that few consumers understand or are even aware of. Exelco is owned by two heavyweights in the diamond industry, Lior Kunstler and Jean Paul Tolkowsky. The Tolkowsky family rose to fame in the 1800s selling diamonds to royalty and a century later developed the ideal cut diamond that is still marketed and sold in mall retail jewelry stores today. Exelco was founded in 1993 and has facilities in Asia and Africa. Its business was to buy rough diamonds from mining companies and sell either the rough to various diamond cutters or cut the diamonds and sell the finished goods to jewelry manufacturers or diamond wholesalers. Exelco grew over the next decade into becoming a DeBeers sightholder. A sightholder is one of a handful of diamond buyers that is authorized to purchase rough diamonds directly from DeBeers in bulk at set prices. Ninety percent of DeBeers diamonds are sold through sightholders, so these few companies dominate the wholesale diamond market. For decades, being a DeBeers sightholder was an extremely lucrative business, second only to being a Budweiser distributor. But recently, the dynamics of the diamond business has changed. First, the cost to mine diamonds has risen dramatically. No easily accessible deposits have been discovered in two decades, so miners have been forced to spend vast amounts of money to further exploit current diminishing mines. A typical mine now costs over $1 billion. As a result, diamond rough prices have continued to rise as mining companies pass these costs on to sightholders and other wholesalers. At the same time of rising input costs, companies like Exelco are being pressured by jewelry manufacturers and retailers. These companies once were dominated by small family businesses or regional chains. Today, huge chains like Jared, Kay and Zales control much of the jewelry market. These companies are able to put pricing pressure on wholesalers, squeezing profits. But the final straw for wholesalers has been the pull-back by several leading financing companies in this industry. Most sightholders and wholesalers do not pay for diamonds in cash, but instead finance the purchase until they can sell the stones. Recently, many of the top banks for this industry pulled out of this type of financing for various reasons. This has put further pressure on companies. Given these factors, it should be no surprise that a leading diamond wholesaling company has declared bankruptcy and many more are in serious financial troubles. And the short-term prognosis is not favorable as U.S. demand for diamonds is expected to be lackluster because of declining marriage rates and more discretionary spending going to things like iPhones and tablets. However, in the long run, things should improve for the diamond industry. Rough diamond prices should continue to rise as a shortage of high-quality new stones hitting the market will continue to fall. In addition, new wealth in Asia should increase global demand for diamonds. Unfortunately, these catalysts come too late for Exelco. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Cornerstone itself took a big hit from Irma not from wind or water directly but from the cancellation or postponement of more than 25 jobs, or about $600,000 worth of work, he estimates. Were doing all right, though, he says, patiently and patience, in this case, is a virtue that can save property owners both time and money, in the long run. Youre not going to get a new roof this week, explains Cathy Curatolo, executive vice president of the Collier County Building Industry Association. Roofers are dealing with the most difficult situation, where people are in desperation right now. But if you have a few tiles off the roof, wait a month. Roofers arent the only ones taking a huge volume of calls for help. So are swimming pool professionals who do pools themselves, along with the sometimes elaborate pump and pool cage repairs so many owners require after hurricanes. Patience is the word if people will be patient, theyll do better, says Joe Mitchell, founder and owner of Pool Pros, a company with 26 years and a number of hurricanes under its belt. I know everybody wants to be first in line, but we have thousands of clients calling us for work. For customers, they should find a quality company they know will come out and represent them well, remembering that not only will it take time to get to the job, but pool products are tight. We have a lot of screen enclosures down or screens ripped out, so it will take a little extra time to get (all the inventory required). Like other reputable and established local businesses in the various trades, there is no price gouging because of a hurricane, and the work is ultimately done by licensed, insured trades people who know what theyre doing. The worst thing Ive seen is people out there underbidding jobs, asking for half their money or more up front, and then not showing up to do the work, Mr. Mitchell says. So I would say, do your homework. With cheap often comes trouble. Check your county and state websites for licensing, ask for referrals, and dont pay in cash or up front. I take a small percentage down 10 percent seems a fair number to secure the job, but not too much. The work will ultimately get done and done better, for those with patience. The legitimate businesses are working full-out right now. At Crowther Roofing, for example, We are overwhelmed by calls, both for domestic and commercial work, said Jan Jones, vice president of marketing. So weve created a waiting list. The list depends on the good will and candor of people and some patience. If you dont have water damage in your house, wait a bit and well get to you. If you do, we will try to come sooner.Everything about the company suggests they do business the right way, and not some other way, and Ms. Jones echoes the advice to consumers of others who do business the right way, too: If they ask for money up front, Run, Forrest, Run! she explains, referring to the 1994 movie with Tom Hanks in which the hero is well advised to leave a situation without further ado.Whether for pools, floors, rooms or roofs, Wait a month, if you can, says Ms. Curtolo, and then follow the same rules: DO NOT pay cash for any job. Look to local contractors and make sure theyre licensed. You can find the Collier County licensing department at www.colliergov. net, 252-2431, or the states Department of Business and Professional Regulations, at www.myfloridagov.com. The telephone: 850-897-1395. Both Lee and Charlotte County provide licensing information on their county websites, as well. Lee Countys site for contractor licensing, for example (http://www. leegov.com/dcd/ContLic), opens with following paragraph: To perform work in unincorporated Lee County, contractors must have a state-issued license OR a Certificate of Competency (local license), which is subject to an application and issuance through Lee County. A contractor must also have a current Certificate of Insurance for liability and workers compensation and/or a current workers compensation exemption status from the state of Florida. The states website, meanwhile, requires visitors to select Departments & Agencies, and then the particular trade electricians, for example and then to scroll down an alphabetical list to a given name, where licenses, dates and other information is recorded. But many people are still impatient, even desperate to get a fix, and that can create long-term headaches whose results are evident for years. Not just state enforcement agencies but the federal government, therefore, prosecuted more than 1,000 cases of fraud following the 2005 disaster, Katrina, that swept the south and ruined New Orleans. Avoiding such an outcome only takes patience and a bit of research and the ability to follow some good advice. This advice from the Florida Roofing, Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning Contractors Association probably fits the bill: First and foremost, homeowners should check the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Boards website, www.myfloridalicense. com, to verify that a contractors license is real and up-to-date before hiring any company to do work on your home. When looking for a Florida licensed contractor, visit the Disaster Contractors Network, www.dconline.org, for a contractor in your area. For those not quite ready to make repairs, FEMA offers disaster assistance, at www.disasterassistance.gov and can help people find emergency housing at www. femaevachotels.com. Homeowners can also take advantage of a public-private partnership known as HERO Property Assessed Clean Energy to finance hurricane resilient improvements and repairs with no upfront cost, allowing them to rebuild the right way and protect against future storms. HERO vets contractors and tracks their customer satisfaction records. Finally, homeowners should not hesitate to report bad actors to the consumer price gouging hotline, at 1-866-966-7226. Honest players in the construction industry are here to help, and will be happy to settle any concerns or disputes through appropriate channels.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Refinancing BasicsInterest rates have been extremely low, historically speaking, for many years now, and lots of people have taken advantage of that, refinancing their mortgages. Rates have crept up a bit over the last year or so, but with the benchmark 30-year fixed mortgage rate recently near 4 percent, many can still save thousands of dollars by refinancing. When you refinance, you get a new mortgage on your home, with your lender paying off your previous loan. (You may actually refinance with the same lender, though you dont have to.) Refinancings typically involve a lower interest rate and smaller mortgage payments, but some opt for a shorter-term mortgage, resulting in somewhat higher payments on a home that will be paid off sooner. When you shop around for a better deal than the one youve got, assess the many mortgage costs involved, such as the origination fee, discount points, the appraisal, the credit report, processing, title insurance, and the escrow fee. You can research available loans and interest rates at bankrate.com and other sites. Consider what points, if any, you might pay. A point is equal to 1 percent of the value of your loan. Points are paid upfront when you close the loan and permit you to buy a lower rate. They can make the most sense if you plan to keep the home and loan for many years.If you can get a new mortgage at a rate thats at least 1 percentage point lower than your current rate, you may reap enormous interest savings over 15 to 30 years, depending on how much you borrow.In some refinancings, you can actually increase the amount of your loan by taking out extra funds perhaps to pay down credit card debt or make home improvements. Be careful with this cash-out tactic, though your valuable home equity will shrink, and cashout interest rates can be higher. In order to be offered the best interest rates, youll want to have or build a solid credit rating. Pay your bills on time, and avoid excessive debt. Dangerous InvestmentsIn the early 1980s, when I was in my early 20s, I knew very little about stocks. A guy called me, saying he was a vice president at a well-known investment company and he had an opportunity for me a great stock that would make me a lot of money. That was the first stock I ever bought. Two months later, I called the investment company and found out that the company Id invested in had declared bankruptcy; I had lost all my money, and the guy who had called me no longer worked for them. I did not know anything close to what I know now. Now I can do some fundamental and technical analysis of stocks. These days I read charts and pay little attention to fundamental data, as I am working on day-trading for a living R.R., Richmond, New HampshireThe Fool Responds: Beware of any cold calls from brokers pushing stocks and other investments. Great opportunities are not peddled that way. And think twice before day-trading, too, as its very risky. One study found that 80 percent of active traders lost money and only 1 percent of them could be described as predictably profitable.We favor long-term investing and fundamental stock analysis, studying companies revenue, earnings, profit margins, debt and cash levels, competitive advantages and so on, instead of trying to draw meaning from charts of stock-price movements. Electric DividendsDont let its name confuse you: Emerson Electric (NYSE: EMR) isnt a utility. Founded in 1890, it is primarily an automation solutions provider that serves nearly every industry you can think of. The company operates another big segment commercial and residential solutions which provides appliances and services related primarily to heating, air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration. Its market value was recently north of $40 billion. Emerson has had to deal with sluggish industry conditions for quite a while, which has resulted in a contraction in sales for the company. Yet in its most recent quarter, it turned things around, enjoying 10 percent sales growth and remaining largely consistent with what executives had hoped to see. Automation solutions are gaining in popularity, and Emerson believes that growth there and in the commercial and residential solutions market should accelerate into 2018. (A strong foothold in automation means Emerson already has a presence in hot markets such as the Internet of Things.) If that proves to be the case, then Emerson could be in line to rebound from weakness, and that could add share-price gains to the dividend income that investors already receive from the stock. The companys dividend recently yielded 3 percent, and it has been increasing its payout annually for more than 60 years. (The Motley Fool has recommended Emerson Electric.) Based in Phoenix, Im the second-largest recycler and waste disposer in the U.S., with a market value recently near $22 billion. I serve 14 million customers in more than 2,700 communities via more than 30,000 employees, 340 collection operations, 201 transfer stations, 193 active landfills, 67 recycling centers, eight treatment, recovery and disposal facilities, 12 saltwater disposal wells and 69 landfill gas and renewable energy projects across 41 states and Puerto Rico. I once shared a corporate parent with AutoNation before I was spun off. My stock has advanced more than 160 percent over the past decade. Who am I? (Answer: Republic Services) Earnings SeasonQWhat is earnings season, and when is it? W.S., Worcester, MassachusettsAPublic companies (those with publicly traded stock) are required to report on their earnings and financial condition in three quarterly 0-Q reports and in an annual 0-K report for their fourth quarter. They can structure their fiscal year as they want, and while many companies end their years at the conclusion of December, others choose the end of March, June or September.Earnings reports are typically issued a few weeks after the end of the quarter, so gobs of American companies release their reports from early January through February, from early April through May, from early July through August and from early October through November. These are the four earnings seasons. Theyre of interest to many investors because they offer new, fresh data on companies, and analysts and commentators will often issue revised opinions on companies after earnings reports.Stock prices can also rise or fall following an earnings report, when results are better or worse than expected. For best investing results, learn to read and understand financial statements yourself and keep up with your holdings earnings reports.***QAre there any index funds that are focused on the world outside the U.S.? T.C., Tulsa, OklahomaAThere sure are, offered by many companies. Vanguard, for example, offers its Vanguard FTSE AllWorld ex-U.S. Index (VFWAX, VEU), covering the whole world market except the U.S., while its emerging markets index funds (VEMAX, VWO) focus on developing economies, which can grow rapidly while being riskier. Theres also the Vanguard European Stock Index (VEURX) and Vanguard Pacific Stock Index (VPACX), among other possibilities, and the Vanguard Total Bond Market II Fund (VTBIX) gives you global bonds.

Naples TOP 1 % luxeexclusively SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHome sales are up 5 percent year over year in August 2017, according to the most recent Naples Area Board of Realtors market report. Broker analysts reviewing the August market report released by NABOR said 685 homes were sold in the month of August, which impressed brokers due to there only being a marginal increase of 20 additional properties in the Collier inventory from last year. The NABOR market reports provide comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. This turned out to be a great summer for sales in Naples, said Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. According to the report, pending sales were up 13 percent in Aug., with overall sales up five percent. Ms. Fioretti said there were some pleasant surprises in the report as well. These included a 75 percent increase in pending sales and a 42 percent increase in closed sales for single-family homes located in South Naples. The report also showed single-family homes in this geographic area had a 22 percent decrease in median closed price. The condominium market performed just as well as the single-family home market in August, reporting a similar 13 percent increase in pending sales. The Pending Home Sales statistic is a forward-looking indicator that is based on contract signings. Ms. Fioretti believes the summer sales activity outpaced last years because of renewed consumer confidence. The overall median closed price for August was $328,000, a 2 percent increase over last year. Geographically, prices in the Naples Beach area continue to rise faster than all other areas tracked. In fact, median closed prices for single-family homes in the Naples Beach area increased 32 percent in August. The median closed price for singlefamily homes jumped 10 percent in August to $422,000. The figure was heavily influenced by 17 sales in the $2 million and above single-family home market, which saw a 54 percent increase in median closed price. All other price categories in the singlefamily home market reported median closed price increases of 5 percent or below. However, when taking a longterm look at closed pricing trends (12-month ending), Augusts median closed price for single-family homes was $405,000, the same as August 2016.

One big sale at the top of the price bracket can influence the monthly reports median closed price, said Dominic Pallini, NABOR president and broker at Vanderbilt Realty. For example, there were 20 total closed sales in the $2 million and above market in August. Therefore, this means 10 sales were below $4.2 million and 10 sales were above.Overall inventory for August stayed largely static, with a total of 4,807 homes compared to 4,787 in August 2016. Singlefamily home inventory decreased 4 percent, while the condominium market saw a 6 percent increase in inventory for August.Ms. Fioretti added that, statistically, major weather events impact housing market sales, and Hurricane Irma was no exception. The Southwest Florida MLS saw virtually no activity for the two weeks following the storm, according to Wes Kunkle of Kunkle International Realty.We wont truly know the impact of Hurricane Irma on the areas housing market for a few months, said Tom Bringardner Jr., president of Premier Commercial. This presents a great opportunity for sellers to refresh their homes and make them more appealing to buyers before season starts. Mr. Bringardner and all broker analysts agreed that the countys hurricane building code standards saved the areas housing market from severe destruction.

B12 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays community amenities popular with buyersTower 2 contracts remain strong If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-ahalf-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet caf, a gifts and sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art 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 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, stated Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 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 many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated completion of the first residential tower, which is 90 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2 earlier this year, said Lodge. Currently, the number of contracted residences in our 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. 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 Gulf 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 open-air fitness center.

Five Star. 229 pages. Hardcover $25.95. Ebook $3.99.Mallie Monroe is at it again in the fifth Mango Bay Mystery. Shes juggling two beaux. One is Cole, whose engagement ring she has managed to misplace (Freudian slip). The other is Nick, the chief police detective on Coral Island. Mallie seems to have a commitment problem.She has other problems as well. Her job as a reporter for the Coral Island Observer has been immensely complicated by the secretary-receptionists honeymoon and the editors disappearance. Suddenly, she finds herself in charge of just about everything, including getting out the next issue of the paper. There are just too many stories waiting to be researched and written. Which is the feature and which are the fillers? Mallie is not happy about having to enlist the help of people with little or no experience. Things are chaotic. A local crazy is trying to pin all her problems, including a bad landscaping job, on Mallie and actually attacks her. Aging lothario Pop Pop keeps imagining that hes Mallies boyfriend. Madame Geri, a local psychic, does more harm than good as a fill-in reporter. There is also a character whose violin bears scratches that resemble a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Should Mallie choose this item as the lead story? Probably not. And there is trouble at the Town Hall meeting where former friends and business associates are at each others throats. When one of the ends up dead in a fish tank, the other is an obvious suspect but there are plenty of other suspects to choose from, including jealous women. Now theres a story. Even Mallies friend and landlord, Wanda Sue, campaigning for a town council seat, finds trouble.Many of the characters and there are perhaps too many of them for a relatively compact novel are quite colorful. Their excesses are part of the novels fun. Several dont act their age their relatively advanced age. Others are simply wacky. Its a community in which a frenzied motormouth like Mallie is the pillar of stability. More complications. Bad fertilizer made from farm-raised tilapia killed by bleach is ruining gardens and crops. Whos behind this? Why? Mallie has to help track down the culprit. Marty Ambrose proves that small-town life, even on a modestly sized Southwest Florida island, is not boring. In fact, one of the greatest strengths of her novel and its predecessors is the authors ability to portray the dynamics, attractions and foibles of such communities. These are places where everyone knows and knows about everyone else. Where civic-minded people are generous with their time and tend to help each other out. Where you sometimes can feel like a queen while living in an antique Airstream trailer in an RV park, as Mallie does. This series provides several powerful examples of the cozy mystery subgenre, which is growing in popularity with such fine Florida writers as Nancy J. Cohen, Lucy Burdette, Diane Weiner and, of course, Marty Ambrose leading the way.About the authorPine Island resident Marty Ambrose has been a writer most of her life, consumed with the world of literature whether teaching English and creative writing at Florida Southwestern State College or creating her own fiction. Her writing career has spanned almost two decades with eight published novels for Avalon Books, Kensington Books, Thomas & Mercerand Coastal Corpse for Five Star.During the last year, Ms. Ambrose has become increasingly interested in combining historical memoir and womens fiction, which became her latest novel, Claires Last Secret. It takes place in both Florence and Geneva, where Ms. Ambrose researched this past summer, and sp ans two eras played out against the backdrop of 19th-century Italy. She loves telling a story especially if its a Florentine conspiracy that unfolds in a Downton Abbey-esque setting. Check into Ms. Ambroses website for more information about her: www.martyambrose.com. 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.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 *Restrictions apply. See server for full details. COLLECTORS CORNER Fiesta continues to nurture 80 years later scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Its not a happy time in our country. People are divided, tensions are high. Weve had natural disasters that have brought some parts of our country to the brink, and national tragedies that threaten to tear us apart. But I know we will persevere. Ive made it a personal goal to surround myself with positive people and with things that make me happy. It isnt always easy. I was doing dishes in the dark after Hurricane Irma, and I had a sink filled with Fiestaware, from which my family, who had evacuated Fort Myers, had dined on grilled cheese sandwiches. Most of the dishes had come from my grandmother Dorothy, who bought her set on an installment plan from a Pahokee merchant around 1936. It was the depths of the Great Depression, and she was in an unhappy marriage. But something about the bright colors lifted her spirits. They also lifted mine. When my grandparents parted company a decade later, she took her Fiestaware with her. It was 1985 when I found the dishes stacked in bean hampers in the back of a tobacco pack house on the family farm in South Georgia. There were dinner plates, cups, saucers and mugs. The jewel tones of the turquoise and yellow glaze shone through the two decades of dust that covered the dishes. I pulled them out, and my grandmother asked how much Fiesta was selling for those days. Dinner plates were bringing upward of $20 to $30 apiece at the time. I told her so, figuring shed want to keep them. But she smiled and gave them to me. It was a time of transition for me I had just graduated from college and was looking for my first professional journalism job. Those dishes inspired hope as I embarked on that journey, and have served me well over 30 years. My grandmother showed everyone the pictures of my kitchen in Delray Beach, complete with her Fiesta on display. It was pretty, and it was comforting. Theyre still on display and they still inspire a smile. And I know she would be pleased that theyre still part of the nurturing process in my family some 80 years later. Bought: T he Chur ch Mouse, 374 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 561-6592154 or www.bbts.org/about-us/church mouse/. Paid: $14 The Skinny: Ive found all manner of objects at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Seas thrift store, The Church Mouse beautiful Russian porcelain, interesting Heisey and Fenton glass. But this Fiesta grill plate made me smile, and transported me to a time when restaurants and cafeterias had divided plates and trays. Homer Laughlin, the company that makes Fiestaware, called this orange glaze Red. It was made with uranium and it will set off radiation detectors. Because of that, I probably will use it for display rather than dining. THE FIND:Fiestaware grill plate SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Fiestaware grill plate was made between 1936 and 1942.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Boo! Roar!October 20 22 ARTS COMMENTARYStill odd, but female, at the Off Broadway PalmOpposites attract. But they also repel. And thats the basis for interesting comedy, as playwright Neil Simon well knows. Over 50 years ago, he created The Odd Couple Felix and Oscar a neurotic, uptight, obsessive-compulsive neat freak and his easygoing, live-andlet-live, messy buddy. The two wind up living together when Felixs wife throws him out. Of course, they drive each other crazy. The Odd Couple also became a movie and in the 0s a popular TV series. Its enjoyed countless revivals. In 1985, Mr. Simon rewrote the play, turning the male characters into women. Its that female version thats playing at the Off Broadway Palm through Oct. 29 with Florence and Olive instead of Felix and Oscar. Poker nights with the guys turn into women playing Trivial Pursuit; the Pigeon Sisters who live upstairs become a pair of divorced brothers from Spain. The play is set in the s, which means, in addition to Trivial Pursuit: landlines, turntables, white belts, blue eye shadow and even a reference to The Fonz. Kelly Legarreta plays Olive Madison, a sports-loving, messy woman. She wonders: whats the point of cleaning? When youre dead, they throw dirt on you anyway, she reasons. Ms. Legarreta is a good fit for this role; feisty and outspoken, shes like Peppermint Patty come to life. When her friend Florence Ungers marriage breaks up, Florence winds up staying with Olive. Katie Pankow plays her as high-strung hypochondriac whos obsessive-compulsive when it comes to cleaning. I feel better when Im cleaning, she explains. It might make her feel better, but it makes everyone else miserable. She goes too far, giving the gang linen napkins on game night and even disinfecting the Trivial Pursuit cards. Shes like an overly attentive waiter who hovers over your table, snatching away your plate before youve even finished your meal. She turned a nice friendly game into the Christian Science Reading Room, a friend complains. In addition to feeling suicidal, Florence has a stiff neck, back problems, bursitis, a sinus condition and is allergic to perfume. Shes such a neat freak her idea of the ideal Christmas gift is probably a vacuum cleaner she could ride like a John Deere tractor. The two are like Mutt and Jeff, physically. Florence is tall and thin while Olive is short and built more for comfort than for speed. The two drive each other nuts. The scenes when all the women are together on stage, playing Trivial Pursuit and kibitzing, are some of the best in the play. Shannon Connolly plays Mickey, a cop; Sylvie (Dena Galyean) is straight out of Staten Island; ML Graham plays Renee, a sophisticated woman whos dating a doctor; and Melissa Whitworth is Vera, ditsy-ness personified. (To show how dim-witted she is, shes going on vacation to Florid in the summer. Im not sure what that says about those of us who live here year-round.) These women are great when theyre interacting around the dining room table, but not as funny when literally chasing each other around in a line throughout the apartment. The clothes (by Costume Designer Jim Conti) are straight out of the s, complete with big hair and not-subtle make-up. (But I couldnt figure out why Olive, a single woman, was wearing such a prominent wedding ring.) The apartment, by P&P Designs, is too generic. They try to New York-ize it by putting a Yankees pennant and a photo of the Brooklyn Bridge on the wall, but thats just minor accessorizing. It could easily pass for an apartment or hotel room in Ohio or Anytown, USA. The doors all look like closet doors, including the front door, which, get this: does not have even one single lock, deadbolt or chain on it. You gotta be kidding me, I thought. Theres no way this is an apartment on Riverside Drive in New York City. A little more attention to detail would have gone a long way in making this set more realistic. The women also pronounce Florences name as if theyre all Midwesterners, as if it has an extra o in it: Floor-ence. (I bet they pronounce orange as OAR-ange too.) Thing get a little strange in the second act, when Olive invites the two divorced brothers from Spain to dinner: Manolo (Nicu Brouilette) and Jesus (Pedro Kaawaloa), two spiffy dressers who stand up when a woman stands, and kiss her hand upon meeting. The brothers even laugh alike. While the brothers are entertaining, the jokes seem a little old the misunderstandings with the English language and its idioms. But the duo gamely makes the best of the dialogue. The audience liked them, and laughed. To me, some of the funniest moments are when they sit in awkward silence, flailing around for conversation. Olive is a mass of ticks and fidgets. Director Paul Bernier played Felix Unger in The Odd Couple on the same stage two years ago, so he knows the play inside out. And the cast benefits from his experience. (Ms. Pankow was also in that production, as one of the Pigeon sisters.) If youre needing some light entertainment, a silly reason to laugh, The Odd Couple, Female Version, can provide that. The very thing that may frustrate some theater-goers its predictability is the same thing that will provide comfort to others. And during these uncertain times, predictability is in short supply and very welcome. A girls night out with these women is fun, a new twist on an old classic by a comedic pro.

H00616 8/16 PUZZLES 26 BEGINNING TO END HOROSCOPESLIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel compelled to get involved on the right side of a seemingly unfair fight. But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical point-by-point basis. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this less-hectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved.

Bridge players sometimes can go a step further by enlisting the aid of the enemy to help them out of a difficult predicament. Consider todays deal from the 1987 North American Swiss Team Championship. South, Dorothy Truscott, had a difficult decision after Easts weak two-heart opening. A double would be for takeout and might well elicit an unwelcome club response, while the unbalanced distribution and lack of fillers argued against a two-notrump overcall. So she elected to pass, hoping her partner would reopen the bidding, as in fact happened. West led the heart eight against three notrump. East covered dummys ten with the jack, and Truscott ducked. East switched to the king of diamonds, and declarer ducked twice before taking the ace. She then successfully finessed the club queen and cashed the ace, discarding a small spade, before leading the three of hearts from dummy. East had to put up the nine to prevent South from winning the trick with the seven. Truscott won with the king and cashed the A-K of spades to bring her total thus far to six tricks. It was now time to enlist the help of the enemy. So after cashing the second spade, she exited with a diamond to Easts nine. With nothing but hearts left, East had to lead from the Q-6-4 to Souths A-7. This not only gave declarer an extra heart trick, but also provided the entry with which to cash her good diamond. So Truscott wound up scoring two club tricks, two spades, two diamonds and three hearts just enough for her contract. The result gave her team a 10-IMP pickup when the North-South pair at the other table stopped in three clubs and went down one. 2-8)Pan Blackened Red Fish, Lime SauceSea Scallops & Filet, Cilantro Garlic OilMiso Salmon, Mango Chili GlazeLinguine with White Clam SauceBayside Lobster Pie, Lobster Cream SaucePan Seared Yellow Tail Snapper, Saffron Citrus ButterPan Blackened Grouper, Saffron ButterCrispy Grouper Sliders, House made Tartar Sauce 239-649-5552 Bike Rentals Starting at $30 per daySALES RENTALSTry Our Today!

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, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. Rebel in the Rye (Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson) Author J.D. Salinger (Hoult) struggles to be a writer and later struggles with success in this uneven biopic. Its a conventional movie for perhaps the most unconventional artist of our time theres little doubt the real Salinger (who died in 2010) would hate it. Rated PG-13.The Only Living Boy in New York 1/2(Callum Turner, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale) In his early 20s and aimless in New York City, Thomas (Turner) sleeps with his fathers (Brosnan) mistress (Beckinsale) and ends up even more confused about life. The ending is decent, but 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 FBI 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. Kidnap (Halle Berry, Sage Correa, Chris McGinn) A desperate mother (Ms. Berry) will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son (Mr. Correa). The story is thin and the action is decent; too bad for Ms. Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. Rated R.

YesAnti-heroes are a curious breed. Lawbreakers who buck authority curry favor because we like them and often sympathize with their plight. The fact that theyre doing something illegal is an afterthought. Isnt it interesting how easily movies get us to put aside our values of morality, law and order for the sake of entertainment? In American Made, which is based on a true story, our anti-hero is Barry Seal (Tom Cruise). Its the late 0s. Hes an airline pilot struggling to provide for wife Lucy (Sarah Wright) and their kids. One day in a hotel bar he meets Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson), a CIA agent there to recruit Barry to take aerial photos of Central and South America. Barry does, and does it well, so more work follows, such as handling pickups and drop-offs with General Noriega in Panama. To this point Barry hasnt done anything wrong. Hes just following CIA orders. In Colombia he meets Pablo Escobar (Mauricio Mejia) and Jorge Ochoa (Alejandro Edda), who get him to smuggle drugs into the United States. And so the real, wacky fun of Gary Spinellis script begins. Years of smuggling both drugs and guns, followed by years of money laundering after Barry becomes filthy rich, ensue. We get the expected montage of lavish parties and everything going great, followed by the inevitable fall from fortune that often accompanies stories motivated by avarice. Through it all we like and root for Barry, in part because we know the U.S. government is giving him a raw deal, and in part because this is escapist entertainment that allows us law-abiding citizens to fantasize about the thrills of Barrys actions. A main appeal in this type of film should be its style, yet at times its lacking. Director Doug Limans (who made the tremendous Edge of Tomorrow with Cruise in 2014) soft, muted colors, coupled with a simplistic style to the camera work, means the film rarely explodes off the screen. This story, which is captivating, needs to resonate with period music, creative editing and pizzazz. After all, its a crazy movie about drugs, money and corrupt governments let the visceral experience of watching it also reflect that craziness. Thankfully, both the movie itself and Cruise (who seems a bit old for the role) are compelling enough to make American Made worthy of your attention. Barry Seal may not be the most likeable anti-hero, but his story especially because its based on true events is not one you will soon forget. f a s i t w dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Barry Seal appeared as a character in two quick scenes in The In ltrator (2016), a good movie about a U.S. Customs Agent (Bryan Cranston) who exposes Pablo Escobars money laundering scheme.

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.

Daily zoo activities will return to normal, according to a zoo spokesperson. The nonprofit is still asking for donations to go toward recovery efforts. However, its happy to provide locals a break from the hardships theyve faced the last several weeks. Floridians have been through a stressful time with the impacts from Hurricane Irma, said Naples Zoo President and CEO Jack Mulvena. With the support we have been shown, our staff felt strongly that we wanted to give back to the community with this weekend. We could all use a relaxing day enjoying time with loved ones doing normal activities. While donations can help rebuild exhibits and structures in weeks or months, the winds of Hurricane Irma removed decades of growth inside the botanical garden in just a few hours including two nearly century-old specimens planted by gardens founder Dr. Henry Nehrling. The zoos horticulture team, alongside multiple crews of arborists from The Davey Tree Expert Company, is on-site conducting extensive tree care. Donations are also being accepted for these efforts as well as establishing new plantings for future generations to enjoy. Recovery has been expedited by a tremendous team effort between staff and volunteers and even crews coming from as far away as Kansas City Zoo, Oklahoma City Zoo, Sedgwick County Zoo, St Louis Zoo and Topeka Zoo. Naples Zoo has also received support from other zoos sending needed equipment, checks and even online donors who purchase items through its Amazon wish list: www. tiny.cc/zooneeds. All this has enabled the zoo to open in about the same amount of time as that following Hurricane Wilma in 2005, even though the damage was more severe with Hurricane Irma. Nature is restorative. Walking in the garden and enjoying wildlife is simply good for your soul, said Mr. Mulvena. I believe we could all use some of that right now. To donate, visit napleszoo.org/give.

In spring 2014, several months after the release of his second album, Never Regret, and as a single, Keep them Kisses Comin was climbing the country charts, his label, Bigger Picture Records, closed its doors. Campbell was suddenly an unsigned artist without the promotional support at radio and for touring that a record labels typically provide. It meant Keep Them Kisses Comin would stall out before it could complete a potential march toward becoming his first No. 1 single. (The song did reach No. 9, thanks in large part to Campbell himself calling stations to urge them to keep playing his song despite his labels demise.) Any way one sliced it, Campbells future as a recording artist suddenly looked less certain than it had been. Many artists would have been thrown into a world of worry by this development. But Campbell, in a late September interview, said he never felt that way about his future. Well, I felt good about it, he said of his prospects. When Bigger Picture closed, I had a song out that was my highest charting song Id ever had. So I knew that I had momentum. I had great relationships at radio and what not. So I didnt panic too hard because I felt like I would find a (label) home pretty quick, and I did. Indeed, by December 2014 Campbell had signed to Red Bow Records (part of the Broken Bow group, whose roster includes Jason Aldean). He also was getting a boost by having a song he cowrote, All American Kid, recorded by Garth Brooks and included on that country superstars new album, Man Against Machine. What probably also helped Campbell was that he had been around the block on the country music scene. Now 38, he had come to Nashville in his early 20s after working for a couple of years as a prison guard including a year-long stint at a maximum-security prison. There, he was able to carve out a living singing on demo recordings and working as a touring keyboardist, first for Luke Bryan and later Tracy Byrd. It was on one of those early tours with Bryan that Campbell, who had been performing around Nashville between touring gigs, asked Bryan for some career advice. Bryan told Campbell he should write songs, work with co-writers and pursue a career as an artist. Unbeknownst to Campbell, he had caught Bryans ear with his own singing and music before joining his touring band as keyboardist and getting Bryans advice. I think he just saw me playing down in Nashville on lower Broadway, Campbell said. I guess I made an impression. And then when I joined his band, he didnt realize I was that same guy until we were doing sound check one day and I just started singing. And hes like Holy cow, youre that guy I saw. Bryan went on to help Campbell make contacts with songwriters, publishers and other music pros in Nashville. Lukes helped me out a ton, and Im very, very thankful for that, Campbell said. Campbell, though, has made a lot of his own luck. He got his deal with Bigger Picture and released his self-titled debut album in 2011. It gave him his first top 15 single in Family Man and a top 25 song in Fish. Never Regret followed two years later, adding top 15 hit in Outta My Head and Keep Them Kisses Comin to Campbells collection of singles before he was briefly sidetracked by Bigger Picture going out of business. Since signing with Red Bow, Campbell has done a good deal of touring and songwriting and released two singles, Tomorrow Tonight and the strikingly personal ballad Outskirts of Heaven, which cracked the top 25 on Billboard magazines Country Airplay chart. Campbell said he and Red Bow plan to release a third single, but they want that single (or possibly a subsequent single) to catch on the radio before releasing a third album. Thats the immediate goal. Im not really worried about putting new music out until I get a new song out, Campbell said. If you ask me do I have product? Yeah, Im ready to go. Im sitting on a great album. But weve just got to make sure we do it right. Campbell said the new album, like his first two releases, will draw strongly from traditional country, but also have energetic songs meant to get crowds revved up at his concerts. Fans can expect that kind of musical mix from Campbell on his fall headlining dates, as hell play songs from his first two albums, some new tunes and a few covers The shows good, Campbell said. We play country music. We dont apologize for it. What we do is what we are and were proud of it. The bottom line is we have a good time. Thats what its all about. Thats what I try to do every time I step on stage.

All three were methods of adding color to a clear glass piece to make it more decorative. The cost and quality of each is different, and collectors should look carefully and ask questions before they buy. Stained glass is the least expensive way to color glass. This method uses a staining material that is brushed on, becomes red or amber, and adheres to the glass when heated. The layer of material is very thin, and if cleaned too vigorously, it could wear off. It often is used to color pressed glass. Flashed glass is made by using an added thin layer of glass over a different color glass. It is made by taking a gather of hot glass, dipping it into a second colored glass, then blowing it into shape. It leaves a thin layer of glass but makes a piece that seems to be made of one solid color, which would be more valuable. Cased or plated glass is the most expensive. It is made by putting a thick layer of glass over a glass piece of a different color. It can be decorated on the outside layer or cut to expose the inside layer. Look at the rim at the top of a cased vase, and youll see two distinct layers. Some glass, like rubina verde, is made with a yellow glass body and red glass added inside. It makes a two-color glass. To make this even more difficult for beginners, there are many different ways to decorate the outside of any of these glass pieces. The glass can be cut through to a different color or just in a clear section. It can be painted on the outside with gilt and enamel to make decorations in many colors. A very elaborate pair of Bohemian flashed glass decanters with cut and enameled decorations sold at a recent Cowan auction for $1,920. Q: I have a Woodard kitchen table set that I believe is from the 1960s. It has four chairs and a round table with two leaves. Can you tell me what the set is worth? A: In 1866, Lyman E. Woodard bought a lumber-planing mill in Owosso, Michigan. He and his three brothers started Woodard Brothers in 1867, and made wood furniture, window and door sashes, blinds and caskets. Lyman bought his brothers' shares in 1890. He died in 1904 and the management of the company shifted to his sons. In the 1930s, Woodards son Lee pioneered the use of wrought iron for outdoor furniture. Lees three sons were responsible for marketing, and the company eventually became Woodard and Sons. During World War II, production shifted to parts for trucks, tanks and naval and aircraft equipment, but by 1946, they had resumed making metal furniture. They are noted for their mid-century designs, especially the Sculptura line, which can sell today for thousands of dollars. Wrought iron, aluminum and t-michaels.com 6 6
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 C25 These 19th-century Bohemian flashed glass decanters were blown, flashed with red glass, cut, and then decorated with orange and black enamel and gilt. The 20-inch-high pair auctioned for $1,920. wicker furniture marked Woodard still is being made, though the company has changed hands and is no longer owned by the Woodard family. Your set probably dates from the 1960s. The chairs are wrought iron and the table appears to be wood. The sets value is about $75. Q: My family has a photograph of a female relative done by the Chicago Portrait Co. This is a photograph, not a painting or drawing. Its in a frame with a domed glass cover. How can I determine the date of the photograph? A: The Chicago Portrait Co. was in business from 1893 to at least 1940. The company was known for its portraits made from old photographs, which were sold by traveling salesmen. The photographs were enlarged and colored with pastels, watercolor, oil paint, crayon or India ink, or created with sepia tones and then printed on a curved piece of cardboard. The salesman brought the picture back in a domed wood frame, making it more expensive than just buying the picture alone. Since the picture was on curved cardboard, it had to be displayed in a domed frame. The salesman made his money by getting the customer to buy the expensive frame. Domed glass frames were popular from about 1880 to 1920. Q: I have an original Stearne Collectable Humphrey B Bear circa 1965 and have only been able to find this bear in the Victoria Museum. Im wondering what the value of my bear is and whether I should be offering it for sale or donate it to a museum. A: Humphrey B. Bear was the main character in a childrens TV show that started in Australia in 1965. Several toy companies made Humphrey B. Bear toys and other items for kids. The L.J. Company, started by Leo Sterne, was in business from 1939 to 1971. Sterne started working in his garage but was using mass production by 1941. He opened a factory in Melbourne, Australia, in 1946. Soft toys based on characters on children's TV shows were made beginning in 1958. Humphrey B. Bear, introduced after the show began in 1965, was one of the most popular Sterne toys. The bear, dressed in a vest, tie and hat, even has his own Face book page. The bear is in the museum as part of its History Collection and was donated by the estate of Leo Sterne after Sterne died. The bear sells for $20-$90, depending on size and condition. Tip: Always remove a book from the shelf to dust. All sides need cleaning. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

When Angelinas Ristorante opened in April 2008, it unquestionably raised the bar for Italian cuisine in Southwest Florida. Other Italian innovators have followed yet none can compare to the complete dining experience here: food that honors yet elevates Italian ingredients and flavors; an award-winning wine program; elegant, sprawling dining rooms; and a highly trained service staff eager to accommodate and enlighten diners. Its worth indulging in both the primo course of small pasta portions and the secondo of heartier entrees; the handmade pastas are so sheer that they wont leave you too full for such stellar entrees as scallops paired with slowly roasted pork belly or classics such as veal Marsala. Angelinas is still in a class by itself. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2016 Barbatella, 1290 Third St. South, Naples; 263-1965. If you love the flavors of Italy but dislike dishes slathered in red sauce and cheese, Barbatella is well worth checking out. Created by chef/restaurateur Fabrizio Aielli (Sea Salt), this lovely restaurant and bar offers a mozzarella bar, charcuterie, antipasti and so much more. The charred octopus with fingerling potatoes, celery, tomato and Cipollini onions was a soul-satisfying starter. Black mussels oreganata featured plump mussels in a well-seasoned tomato broth. Indulge in a pasta course, even if you share it. We loved the orecchiette with broccoli rabe, pork sausage and ricotta. Another standout was the sea scallop entre with Tuscan beans, wilted spinach and lemon caper sauce, although a 12-ounce black Angus steak was perfectly cooked and tasty as well. For dessert, the Death by Chocolate was fudgy and decadent and the torta della nonna was a simple but delicious lemon cake with patisserie cream that was perfect after a large meal. Service here is warm and welcoming. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2017 Fernandez the Bull Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; (239) 653-9097. Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Rodizio Grill, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago Drive, Estero; (239) 498-0018. The latest dining addition at Coconut Point re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-can-eat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding three-foot skewers and scary looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, one of which is that you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. We sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items including some exquisitely tender hearts. The tritip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Bacon-wrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 Tartine & Tartelette, 11121 Health Park Blvd., Naples; 888-1151. This cozy little restaurant just off Goodlette-Frank and Immokalee roads may seem an unlikely setting for excellent French fare, but thats what you will find here, along with ample parking, a friendly staff and an attractive dining room. Owners Axelle and Jean Bechu have transformed the space with soothing tones of silver-gray and white. A millefeuille (a thousand leaves) of smoked salmon and apples was a gorgeous and delicious dish of whisperthin slices of Granny Smith apples alternating with rich smoked salmon. A vol au vent of the sea held bits of chopped seafood in cream sauce beneath a tender puff pastry. The coq au vin was a classic rendition served in its own little pot. And scallops in grapefruit butter were exceptionally good, the scallops perfectly cooked then touched with butter and bits of pink grapefruit served with splendid roasted tomatoes. A warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream and slivered almonds was a perfect finish to the meal. Beer and wine served.
