As Hurricane Irma tore through Southwest Florida, Marco Island residents and the rest of Collier County braced for the worst and got it. The next day, and for weeks afterward, homeowners carried, gathered, raked and bundled what the storm left of their landscaping. The task of collecting and disposing of these mountains of tree trunks, branches and other debris fell to the Collier County Solid & Hazardous Waste Management Divison, headed by Margie Hapke. Where to begin? And how to mobilize the funds, equipment and other resources necessary to deal with the sad remains of residents landscaping? Were dedicating all cleanup efforts to our residents, while commercial businesses are responsible for clearing debris from their commercial property, Ms. Hapke, interim supervisor at the Collier County Public Utilities Department, says. Residents should put their storm debris out for collection as soon as possible. SEE RESIDENTS, A12 COURTESY PHOTOPost-storm cleanup continues along almost every residential street in Collier County.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY EXPLORE DESIGNER FURNISHINGS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA NAPLES SHOWROOM 7200 TRAIL BOULEVARD239.598.3330STORES IN FT. MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYYoure right! Each year, the celebrated New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd offers her column space for one week to her brother, Kevin. Ms. Dowd is widely regarded as a liberal, the only one in her family. Kevin, she says, is an educated, suburban supporter of Donald Trump. In that tradition, Ive offered my column space this week to my sister, Karen, a Coloradoan and (in years past) occasional Florida visitor who is not an educated, suburban supporter of Donald Trump. But she is educated. Heres what she wrote.Can I be honest? Ive had it. Im completely fed up. For 12 months now squishy, mushy liberals have been wiggling around in the mud, racking their brains in an attempt to understand and explain whats been happening. Ive heard dozens of them: journalists, commentators, philosophers, civic leaders, brilliant orators. Theyve become bottom-dwellers, full of if onlys. If only we could figure out a way to explain. If only we could articulate more clearly. Maybe we need to present more facts. Possibly another historical analysis would be helpful. At this point Im exhausted. I would think all of those bright liberals would be, too. Who are they kidding? Do they really think their arguments are making a difference? Are they just tongue-tied at this point? Shocked? Gob-smacked? Heres what I think. I think its hopeless. I think there have been too many months of explanations, and too many feeble or even robust arguments presented in an effort to be sincere and/or play fair. I think it was over before it started. I think its pointless and fruitless. I think the 35 percent know exactly what theyre doing. Heres the thing: People arent all good or all bad. Theyre complicated, and they often make decisions knowing just what theyre doing, even if they dont choose to admit it. Does anyone really think that 35 percent of Americans dont understand its wrong to exhibit ugly racist behavior? Of course they know. And for some horrible, despicable reason they think it is now justified. Are there any arguments that can possibly justify the abominable treatment of women in the workplace, in the home, in the realm of reproductive health or anywhere else? Of course not. Its wrong. We dont need to think of new, clever, more articulate arguments explaining why. The 35 percent already know: ITS NOT OK. Dont bother trying to argue. They know it already. But for some reason they think theyve now been given license. Do we really think anyone doesnt understand we ought to be protecting the earth and not destroying the Everglades or the animals or the oceans or the air? I dont believe that. I think, by this point, everyone gets it. And those politicians and business leaders who continue to make decisions that favor the powerful and the moneyed are selfishly putting themselves and their pocketbooks ahead of our future on the earth. So dont bother with anymore erstwhile arguments in an attempt to explain more clearly what everyone already knows. Lets just be honest. And you in the 35 percent you know what youre doing. You know its wrong. You think, because there is currently an awful human being or two in the White House, that youve been given permission to be a despicable racist or a women-hater or a rapist of our earth. I say to all those soft-hearted, verbose liberals: STOP NOW. Stop trying to be understanding. Stop trying to calmly argue or to use sweet reason. Just tell the truth. Yes, lay out the facts. But hold to a higher standard. Be tougher. Be absolute. Because it is not OK to exhibit behavior that is cruel and inhumane. Never. And no one, no leader, no entertainer, not even a family member, can ever make that behavior OK by modeling it. So from now on when you come across one of those people who argues for cruelty, abuse or destruction in the name of freedom, religion or individual rights, dont waste your time inventing a credible argument to help educate them, to show them how to be a better person and a steward of the earth. Instead, just try these on for size: Racism is cruel and unacceptable. Its wrong. Women must be treated with equality and respect. Anything else is wrong. If we put personal greed ahead of preservation of the earth, we will harm the planet forever. Thats wrong. Come on, squishy liberals. Youre right, whether youre left or not. Get tougher and smarter about it. t l p h t roger

Baseball is my thing and has been since I was a kid. I played third base, but my aspirations ended prematurely. My grade school coach figured out I couldnt make the throw from third to first. I was relegated to the stands thereafter. But my reassignment did nothing to dampen my enthusiasm. I have long continued to enjoy a ball game as an adult, of which there are now certain benefits. They include dollar beer night, senior citizen discounts, and witnessing excited future fans scrambling for a ball in the stands. There is also the satisfaction of yelling at the umpire as if you are the batters mother protesting a bad call. In Florida, a ballgame is never hard to find, at whatever level of play you fancy. But, if baseball is not your passion, football season might be the best next thing. I dont get too worked up about the opening of the season, but this year, it was different. For starters, Hurricane Irmas visit to Florida played a major role in disrupting the season kickoff schedule. Thats a big deal for students and grads devoted to following their schools team, even for someone like me. Almost every Florida high school canceled games and the states seven universities did, too, that belong to the Football Bowl Subdivision. Its the crme-de la-crme of college football. So, post-Irma, the football season was already off to a bit of rocky start. Seeking alternatives, football fans settled into their Barcaloungers and turned to the National Football League for their football fix. Then all hell broke loose. The president launched a culture war grenade right into the nacho bowl. Instead of the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars, we got a seat on the 50-yard line of a brawl fest in political football.It had roots in 2016. Colin Kaepernick, the 49ers backup quarterback, refused to stand for the national anthem. His gesture was in protest of police violence against AfricanAmericans and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. His protest did not go unnoticed. It ultimately cost Kaepernick his job. The NFL essentially blackballed him from playing in the league. Though the controversy smoldered on, it was a slow burn. The NFL football lived on. Then, last month, while attending a political rally in Alabama, President Trump lobbed an incendiary, rhetorical bomb into the embers of the controversy and it erupted into a conflagration that engulfed the nation. He called the players in the National Football League who either showed support for or mimicked Kaepernicks protest sons of bitches. He demanded the NFL fire them all and failing that, the fans boycott the NFL. He lamented NFL football was no fun anymore anyway because, regrettably, the physical foreplay of brain-damaging hits among players is now discouraged in the sport. Well, holy crap, Batman. He started a firestorm. Rarely has the nation chased its tail so convincingly and with such wild abandon. We went from NFL football to Circus Maximus. While the nation indulged itself in self-immolation regarding who is and is not a true patriot, crucial issues of national importance languished on the sidelines. To knee or not to knee? That was the question. Meanwhile, the future of Americas healthcare system, the fate of 800,000 young Dreamers; and the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico all but disappeared. Did I also mention the threat of a nuclear war with North Korea? The irony was that it was highly suspect whether the man doing the flame-throwing was worthy of calling the question. Think five military deferments, Muslim Gold Star family, a decorated P.O.W., and Charlottesville. So, I switched channels. I watched Ken Burns and Lynn Novicks documentary, The Vietnam War. One of the American veterans interviewed and appearing in multiple episodes is John Musgrave, formerly a corporal in the U.S. Marines. He went into combat in Vietnam as an 18-year-old. When discharged from the military and back in the states, he joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Its purpose was to oppose the United States policy and participation in the Vietnam War. Musgrave became part of the peaceful demonstrations across the country to end the war. Musgrave served the nation with honor, but on his return as a civilian, he struggled to define for himself the meaning of patriotism. He answered his countrys call to fight in a war he later vehemently protested. Says Musgrave, Yes, I was a Marine. But I was first and foremost a citizen of the United States of America. And being a citizen, I have certain responsibilities. And the largest of those responsibilities is standing up and saying to your government no when it is doing something you think is not in your nations interest. That is the most important job every citizen has. By Musgraves measure, those who take a knee in protest of Americas wrongs are patriots, too. They are challenging America to strive always to be better than it is.

The non sequiturs of the gun debateThe mind boggles at the horror of Las Vegas, where Stephen Paddock perched himself in the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and sprayed bullets into a crowd of outdoor concertgoers in the worst mass shooting in American history. If this slaughter of innocents were an act perpetrated by a foreign power, the U.S. military retaliation would begin immediately, and rightly so. The impulse to act to stop the domestic massacres that have become a heartbreakingly metronomic feature of American life is laudable and understandable. Its time, as Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy said, giving voice to the sentiment, for Congress to get off its a-and do something. The problem is that the something, namely all the usual gun-control proposals, isnt well-suited to stopping mass shootings. But liberal politicians never let the inapplicability of their proposals stop them. The passion with which they advocate for new gun-control measures is inversely related to their prospective efficacy. The go-to proposal is universal background checks, although the perpetrators of mass shootings usually havent been adjudicated and therefore have passed background checks, as Paddock did in purchasing at least some of his guns. No enhanced background-check regime, no matter how vigorous, would have stopped him from purchasing guns. Hillary Clinton immediately singled out so-called silencers, or suppressors. The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots, Clinton tweeted. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make it easier to get. This conjures an image of the killer shooting down people with a gun impossible to hear, a conception straight out of a James Bond movie. In a piece on Republican-supported legislation to make suppressors easier to acquire, The Washington Post notes that one of the devices would lessen the sound of an AR-15 to 132 decibels, or comparable to a gunshot or a jackhammer. In other words, a rifle still sounds like a gun even with a suppressor. If Hillary cares so much about the issue, she might take 10 minutes to learn something about it, but gun-controllers tend to be low-information advocates. Confusion between semi-automatic weapons, which are common and fire once each time the trigger is pulled, and automatic weapons, which are rare and fire multiple times each time the trigger is pulled, is a persistent feature of the gun debate. Many gun-controllers dont know the difference and erroneously refer to, say, AR-15 rifles as machine guns or automatic weapons. This is an area where Congress has already legislated, though. It is illegal to own an automatic weapon made after May 1, 1986, and difficult and expensive to own one made before that. Finally, there are always calls to limit magazine sizes, although this wouldnt have stopped Paddock, either. It took the SWAT team more than an hour to breach his room. The images from Las Vegas are sickening. Theres the sound of gunfire truly worthy of a war zone as people scream and run and cower, with nowhere to go. This shouldnt happen in America; it shouldnt happen anywhere. But that doesnt mean that the off-the-shelf obsessions of gun-control advocates would do the slightest thing to stop it.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Fundraiser will help pave the way for quadriplegics physical therapyEtudes de Ballet & Co. presents Naples concert pianist Jodie DeSalvo and author Kay Kinsley Adams in Renee. Released., a benefit for quadriplegic Renee Whisner, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13. The ballet school is at 3285 Pine Ridge Road. In addition to a performance by Ms. DeSalvo and a keynote address titled Overcoming Adversity by Ms. Adams, the evening will include a silent auction, photo booth, Tuscan-inspired food and drink and even some surprise guests. Until Nov. 3, 2014, Ms. Whisner, a United States Air Force veteran and mother of two grown children, was a healthy, active woman who loved to bike and travel. Earlier that year, she had gone to India to study yoga; her intention was to return to the United States and open her own yoga studio. Then her cab driver crashed into a tree and rendered her paralyzed from the chest down. I spent a year in India earning advanced certification as a yoga instructor and was about to go home to start my new career when it happened, she explains. Her neck was broken at C-4 and C-5, which was later surgically put back into place with a titanium plate and four titanium screws. She is considered to be C-4 complete, which means she has no motor or sensory function below the injury site. An active member of Toast of the Coast, a Naples-based Toastmasters International club, Ms. Whisner shared in a speech recently that she has been accepted into an aggressive physical therapy program at the International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Md. Her fellow Toast of the Coast members quickly pulled together once they learned the program would cost more than $50,000. By contacting every possible connection within the clubs diverse and professional membership, they organized Renee. Released. We realize the goal of raising $50,000 is a lofty one, says fellow Toastmaster Amy Bright Gilhuly, but I can honestly say Renee has inspired all of us on such a deep level through her courage, humility and bright outlook on life despite her circumstances, we believe that what seems impossible could very well happen. We are all committed to doing whatever it takes to get her the intensive therapy she needs in order to reach her simple goals. Ms. Whisners goals center on the simple things many of us take for granted: She wants to walk again as well as feed, groom and help herself. Tickets to Renee. Released. are $50 in advance at or $60 at the door. For more information, call Ms. Gilhuly at 777-0416 or Marianne Oehser at 216-3030.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY nonprofit arts and culture sector is a large piece of the financial pie here. And Naples Art Association CEO Aimee Schlehr thinks, with local government help, it can be even stronger. We can make a bigger impact with our county officials to support the arts more, said Ms. Schlehr. ArtisNaples, one of Southwest Floridas biggest draws for the visual and performing arts, worked closely with the United Arts Council on the study, according to VP of marketing and patron engagement Ashley Mirakian. We were excited to quantify the impact, she said, noting this as the first time Collier has participated in such a study. Americans for the Arts, a national nonprofit dedicated to advancing the arts in America, recently commissioned the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, which unveiled that the nonprofit arts/ culture scene in Collier County had a local impact to the tune of $107.7 million in total economic activity in fiscal year 2015. Understanding and acknowledging the incredible economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture, we must always remember their fundamental value, Americans for the Arts CEO Robert Lynch said of the study and its proof of the arts impact on communities. They foster beauty, creativity, originality and vitality. The arts inspire us, soothe us, provoke us, involve us, and connect us. But they also create jobs and contribute to the economy. Breaking down the numbers in Collier reveals that of the $107.7 million in local activity, $63 million was spent by nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, and an additional $44.7 million was spent via event-related expenses by their audiences. The study sends a strong signal to local policy makers that supporting the arts will not only lead to an enhanced quality of life in Collier County, but contribute to its economic well-being, according to Naples Art Association CEO Aimee Schlehr. Quantifying what we do as an arts organization is important. Were one of the oldest in Collier to see the growth weve had gives us a nice baseline to look at future growth of the arts in our community, Ms. Schlehr said. The NAA will celebrate its 65th year in the 2018-19 season. Ms. Schlehr cited the many avenues nonprofit arts and culture affect Collier County in a positive way, whether it be through public school arts programs, local events that bring in thousands of visitors from across the world, and adding to the already beautiful aesthetics of Naples and beyond. The Naples Art Association is no exception, with a time-tested tradition of supporting local artists and coaching up new ones with business-centric programming to help artists sell their work, or find ways to market themselves. Beyond ticket salesThe Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study revealed a national correlation between economic vitality and the arts. The report canvassed 341 study regions encompassing over a hundred cities and counties across all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The impact goes far beyond ticket sales. According to the study, the $107.7 million economic impact in Collier County supported 2,923 full-time equivalent jobs, generated $57.4 million in household income for local residents, and delivered nearly $11 million in local and state government revenue in 2015. An FTE job is calculated via the total amount of labor employed, which can include one full-time employee, two half-time employees, etc. According to Americans for the Arts findings, the nonprofit arts industry generated $166.3 billion of economic activity nationally in 2015 $63.8 billion spent by arts and cultural organizations, $102.5 billion in event-related expenses by audiences. When patrons attend an arts event, they may pay for parking, eat dinner at a restaurant, enjoy dessert after the show, and return home to pay the babysitter, Mr. Lynch wrote in his findings. A typical Collier County nonprofit arts/cultural event attendee spends, on average, $32.30 per person beyond the cost of admission. This figure was calculated by the study to include meals, souvenirs and gifts, ground transportation, overnight lodging for one night, and miscellaneous costs that could include childcare. The national figure is slightly less at $31.47 per person. Ms. Schlehr is a numbers person. When she started with the Naples Art Association in 2009, she came on as CFO, touting a strong financial accounting background. She had little knowledge of the arts. I was terrified of having to talk to people about (our work), Ms. Schlehr recalled with a laugh. As she became more versed in the arts and witnessed the tangible community impacts of the NAA and its nonprofit partners, she became immersed in educating herself on various local initiatives and helped spearhead many new programs, as well as paving the way for the Americans for the Arts study to be completed. She was familiar with a recent Lee County study by the United Arts Council and saw the incredibly high economic impact. Ms. Schlehr knew Collier would be no different. The UAC conducted a nearly twoyear study (and) found that the arts had a higher economic impact than baseball, Ms. Schlehr said. Lee County is home to the Single-A minor league affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, the Fort Myers Miracle, as well as the spring training destination for the Boston Red Sox. Both teams have their own stadiums in Lee County. I pushed Collier to do this. I was very interested in seeing how many jobs we support. The more opportunities we have in the region to engage the community with arts, the better it is for all of us. All boats rise with the tide, said Lydia Black, executive director of Lee Countys Alliance for the Arts. Ms. Black believes Southwest Florida as a region will benefit for Collier visitors intense interest in the arts, and vice versa. Ms. Mirakian pointed out that every arts organization in Collier County has a core mission: to serve the local population as well as seasonal residents, along with visitors from out of county. We think of those audiences we serve are incredibly vital to what we do. (The study) is very encouraging, she said. If someone goes to the Southwest Florida Symphony, theyre more likely to go to Artis Naples or the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Ms. Black said. I think Lee County in particular benefits from the work Collier County has done investing in its arts community. I dont see this as competitive. I see it as an opportunity for all the arts to be elevated. The sharing between arts organizations helps build communities and creates significant economic development. (Seasonal residents) want the same amenities and luxuries they have in their hometown, Ms. Schlehr said. We have everything from a barbershop quartet, to the beautiful museum and Philharmonic at ArtisNaples.ARTSFrom page 1 The arts keep us connected through picture and movement, story and song. The arts introduce our children to our history and the endless possibilities that lie ahead of them. Lydia Black, CEO/executive director, Alliance for the Arts Understanding and acknowledging the incredible economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture, we must always remember their fundamental value.

A collaborative effortOf the 62 nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in Collier County, 45 participated in the economic impact study. This included two visits from Americans for the Arts volunteers to each of the nonprofit participants. Artis Naples, Collier Child Care Resources, the Collier County Agricultural Fair & Exposition, Collier County Public Schools, the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples, Gulfshore Playhouse, the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of SWFL, The Naples Players and Naples Zoo are just a handful of the nonprofits that contributed to this study. I think its a really great comprehensive study of the arts in Collier County, Ms. Mirakian said. We saw the data from when Lee participated Theres such a range of creative industries in Collier, this (study) is a great starting point and we hope to get more people involved next time. Americans for the Arts surveyed guests, attended shows and receptions, interviewed restaurant workers, even babysitters, and reviewed financial information from many of these organizations. One number that stuck out to Ms. Schlehr was event-related spending between residents of Collier County and non-residents. For fiscal year 2015, the study reported over 847,000 local attendees (Southwest Florida residents) of arts and culture events, with total expenditures of roughly $23.2 million. Non-resident attendees totaled just over 537,000 for 2015 and spent $21.5 million. Almost as much money is generated from our seasonal visitors as our regular residents, Ms. Schlehr said. As we advertise our golf courses and beaches, this tells us people are also coming because of what we have here culturally. Of the non-resident survey respondents in the study, nearly 62 percent indicated that the primary purpose of their Collier County visit was to specifically attend this arts/cultural event. As we start to expand our programming, we look more toward shoulder season, Ms. Mirakian said of ArtisNaples, citing the slower months coinciding with the precursor and tail ends of the seasonal months, starting around wintertime and concluding around April or May. Weve seen incredible results thanks to the mix of seasonal people staying longer and locals looking for something to do during that time. A helping hand?Ms. Schlehr thinks these numbers tell people that when season winds down, people dont just stop going out. Many locals are interested in the arts too, keeping all of those valuable travel, entertainment and tourism dollars here in Collier County. To me, this says we need the county to continue investing in the arts. They have such a big impact in Collier, Ms. Schlehr said. Our government should support and promote Collier as a cultural destination. This study is proof. She cited the generous involvement of the city of Naples in the NAAs initiatives, helping to promote events and fundraisers as well as input for expanded programming. Following the results of this economic study, how exactly does Ms. Schlehr envision the county helping the arts locally, including the Naples Art Associations intiatives? We would love for them to advertise our big festivals. To have the city become an official sponsor and really partner with one of our national shows would send a nice signal to the rest of the county. As the county continues to look into sports tourism, we are trying to work with the county commissioners as well, Ms. Schlehr said. She was referring to a recent effort by the county to bring a multi-use sports complex to East Naples, complete with outdoor and indoor facilities for a variety of sporting events and youth leagues. The board of county commissioners approved a hotel tax increase over the summer to raise the funds to build the complex, with projected costs exceeding $60 million. I totally understand trying to diversify tourism dollars, but until we can build up the infrastructure for sports tourism, why cant we naturally support this aspect of the economy that we know is going to generate money for us? Ms. Schlehr questioned.

Guest speaker will be Sgt. Keni Thomas, the decorated veteran who inspired the book and movie Black Hawk Down. Sgt. Thomas survived the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia, where he was deployed as part of a special operations team called Task Force Ranger on a mission to find and capture criminal warlord Mohammed Farrah Aideed. On Oct. 3 that year, Sgt. Thomas and his fellow rangers distinguished themselves in a chaotic, 18-hour firefight in which 19 Americans died and 78 were wounded. A graduate of the University of Florida, Sgt. Thomas stayed in the Army for three more years as a team leader for a six-man ranger reconnaissance team. A recipient of the Combat Infantrymens Badge and the bronze star for valor, he now works fulltime as an award-winning recording artist. His Nashville-based band Cornbread was featured in the movie Sweet Home Alabama and regularly tours with the USO. He is also a national spokesperson for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides college educations to the children of special operations personnel killed in combat or training. The Salute to Veterans breakfast begins at 7:15 a.m. and the program starts at 8 a.m. Cost is $35 (free for the first 50 veterans who sign up).

The Immokalee Foundation mentors explain the benefits of partnership SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLeaders are made, not born, as the saying goes. Thanks to support from the Southwest Florida business community and its own leaders, students in The Immokalee Foundations programs are learning to be leaders, too. This important instruction is done through mentorship by the men and women who share their time, talent and experience to encourage Immokalee youth to excel in their studies and their lives. More than 140 mentors are currently paired with students in TIFs Take Stock in Children scholarship program. The program is growing, and more mentors are needed. The mentoring arrangement is a winwin situation. The job of the mentor is to provide advice, support and friendship to a young student, said John Costigan, a foundation board member and mentor, along with his wife, Emily. We enjoy mentoring because it puts a face on the scholarship program and gives us a very personal connection to the important work of The Immokalee Foundation. We feel students benefit from a perspective they might not otherwise have, and we benefit from making a contribution to a very deserving students success. Each student newly inducted into Take Stock in Children mostly seventhand eighth-graders is partnered with a volunteer mentor who provides support, guidance, accountability and friendship. Many mentors come from local companies; these participants say they enjoy the same rewards as the Costigans. Its been a great experience for me, said Debbie Divita, associate portfolio manager with BMO Wealth Management in the Naples division. The kids in Immokalee are just amazing. They all kind of realize they want to have different opportunities than their parents did. They want that education and theyre willing to work for it. She learned about mentorship with the foundation through the banks managing director, Amy Hale. Amy introduced us to Leessett Perez, a student with The Immokalee Foundation, said Ms. Divita. Leessett talked to us at a staff meeting. Afterward, I went to Amy and said, Id really like to be a part of this. Id like to do something. Ms. Divita signed on as a mentor and was paired with Litzy Rojas, a junior at Immokalee High School. We hit it off right from the start, Ms. Divita said. It all seemed to gel from the beginning. Often, new mentors find out about the benefits of this relationship from colleagues. Samantha Bhagwandat is teller supervisor at Florida Community Banks branch in Immokalee. She learned about the program from Luis Cartagena, a colleague and TIF board member. Ms. Bhagwandat has since mentored Carol Galvan Leon, a senior at Immokalee High School, for three years. Like other mentors and mentees, Ms. Bhagwandat and Ms. Leon meet once a week for formal and informal activities, including discussions on books about leadership, which they take turns choosing. Ms. Bhagwandat is proud that her employer is nurturing the next generation. Our bank is very much involved in the community, and this helps these young kids to develop, she said. Luis Cartagena is mentor to Elizay Bravo and Loudjina Louis. From the beginning, we have made a commitment to each other to stay consistent and stay effective, Mr. Cartagena said. He talked about a recent day when he met with both mentees. We discussed in great detail their individual goals for this school year and how we were going to accomplish each of their set goals. With both mentees earning a 4.0 GPA and both dual enrolling at Florida SouthWestern State College and also throwing work and extracurricular activities in there it is clear to all of us that any distractions will take us off course, he added. It is a true partnership, and we are committed to win together. As vice president and branch manager of Florida Community Banks Immokalee branch, Mr. Cartagena believes firmly in business support of community programs. When companies step up, they set the example of their level of commitment to the communities they serve, he said, adding, It also empowers their employees to get engaged. Each employer has a great amount of talent on its team that each and every student can benefit from. And these kids are our future. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence. To learn more about TIF and how to get involved, call 430-9122 or visit Debbie Divita, left, and Amy Hale, standing, of BMO Wealth Management with TIF student Leessett Perez. FCB employees Luis Cartagena and Samantha Bhagwandat and TIF students Merari Villa and Brenda Pulido take the TIF mentoring pledge.COURTESY PHOTOS

TAXES ESTATE INCOME PLANNINGInvestment Advisory Services offered through Grace Capital Management Group, LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser. Grace Tax Advisory Group, LLC.800.511.4048RETIREWITHGRACE.COM TAX ADVISORY GROUP CAPITAL MANAGEMENT The county is being very specific about how and where the debris should be piled. We have invested quite a bit of money in public service announcements placed by our media agency on almost all radio stations, Ms. Hapke says. The announcements tell residents how this should be done, she says, adding the requirements are meant to make collection easier and faster as well as to avoid damage to power lines, drainage facilities and other residential surroundings. Residents who do not have a sidewalk are asked to put their vegetation debris at the edge of the property close to the curb. Only storm-related vegetative waste will be collected, Ms. Hapke warns. Residents should not mix in demolition materials or household waste. As can be imagined, the county-wide effort is not cheap, and actually has never been done before. We dont know yet how much this will cost, Ms. Hapke says., but the division director from the Office of Management and Budget has told County Commissioners the cleanup costs could be up to $100 million. She remembers that the cleanup cost for Hurricane Wilma in 2005 was $26 million. Applying for FEMA reimbursement is a very detailed and involved process, she says. In particular, the program allows residents to participate, take the initiative and bring waste to collection points themselves. This can help accelerate the overall cleanup process. Weve set up temporary drop-off locations throughout the county for residents and homeowners who dont want to wait for curbside collection, she says, reiterating that the locations are only for stormrelated yard waste and not for construction debris, garbage, hazardous materials or appliances. The hope is that the temporary program will speed the process of collection and help residents clear their properties of debris sooner than later. Since this project started, weve collected almost a quarter million cubic yards of waste, Ms. Hapke says. Just for reference, a cubic yard is about the size of the washing machine in your house, so thats quite a bit. Well continue to support residents by keeping the collection points open as long as necessary.

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.

BEHIND THE WHEELInfiniti Q60: A touch of familiarity and a ton of powerIf youre a fan of Infiniti, this is the car youve been rooting for them to build. The company has consistently been building sporty and solid luxury machines, but the 2017 Q60 Red Sport 400 feels like the ultimate evolution. It adds more excitement inside, outside, and especially under the hood with a 400 hp motor. The exterior design is new, but it feels very familiar. The style follows Infinitis theme of cat-like sedans and coupes. With narrow headlights for eyes and tall fenders like shoulders, the Q60 looks more like a prowling jaguar than the cars from Jaguar. The designers were thoughtful in the details with tasteful chrome accents, plenty of extra curves in the sheet metal, and even a little ridge in front to complement the sharp point of the logo. There is an unmistakable vibe from its predecessor, the G-series coupe, but Q60 has a low-slung sportiness that its forerunner didnt have. Inside, this upgraded feeling continues. The front seats have plenty of bolstering, but theyre also forgiving. The door armrest and center console are tall enough to keep the drivers arms focused on the wheel, but not so high that the cockpit feels claustrophobic. This creates an ideal mix of feeling like a performance car, but not sacrificing commuter comfort. Just like the exterior, the Q60 gives off plenty of familiar feelings. The gauge package and the adjacent infotainment touchscreen are instantly familiar to anyone who has driven a Nissan or Infiniti in the last five years. Its not as if this sports coupe lifted its instruments directly from a Pathfinder SUV, but the steel blue glow is now a family trait. A more inspired piece is a second touchscreen thats mounted below the first one. Its part of Infintis InTouch system, and it comes standard on all Q60s. This a handy feature for those who pair their phones with their vehicle or utilize the cars (optional) satellite navigation. After all, when any one feature takes up the whole touchscreen interface, the Infiniti is one of the few cars that offers another screen to maximize utility. But probably the smartest thing about the Q60 is where its positioned in the marketplace. The base model starts at $39,945. Thats for a 2.0-liter turbo that produces 208 horsepower. BMWs first rung on the 4-Series coupe ladder is also a 2.0-liter turbo car. It makes 40 extra horsepower, but it also cost $4,350 more. The 4-Series seems to be the Q60s benchmark, because they both also offer a 3.0-liter twin turbo option. Once again, the Infiniti is less powerful, but its more affordable. All-wheel drive is also optional on both. For the true sports coupe fans, the top of the lineup should be the most interesting. The Q60 Red Sport dials up the dual turbochargers to 400 horsepower. This is still less powerful than the BMW M4, but it makes 38 more horsepower than the Mercedes C43 AMG. And both of those are well above the Q60 Red Sports $52,295 base price. This ultra-hot version of the Q60 feels quite confident in all situations. The multivalve arrangement and dual overhead camshafts make for quick acceleration from stoplights, and when those advantages run out, the twin turbos kick in. It creates a sensation that there is always power to spare, which is exactly whats needed when asking a premium for a sports coupe. The Q60 also has an array of intelligent features to enhance cornering. This is on all models, but the Red Sport is also upgraded to have electronic settings for the engine, suspension and steering. It gives this high horsepower coupe the adaptability to feel as tame as an Altima or as ferocious as a GT-R. And its this flexibility that will win customers. Name recognition and higher refinement justify why the European competition costs a little more. But this Japanese offering has precision and practicality on its side. The new Q60 has the familiarity of its predecessors, but the soul of a whole new animal. So for those who like Infinitis (and some who havent tried them before) this is the one youve been yearning for.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month events make strides against the disease BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comThere are constant reminders of how breast cancer doesnt discriminate. Less than two weeks 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. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the walks begin at 9. They hope to raise around $300,000.

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 and 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.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy husband and I were loading up our kayak and stand-up paddleboard a few weeks ago when I squealed, An adventure cat! Sure enough, a tabby cat wearing a yellow flotation device tugged at his leash as the people next to us unloaded their kayak. It was Pans first time out on the water, they said. Hes not alone. Instagram is full of photos of cats hiking, camping, boating, surfing, sledding and snowshoeing (on their built-in snowshoes, er, paws). Earlier this year, Laura Moss, who founded in 2015, published Adventure Cats: Living Nine Lives To the Fullest, a guide to safely taking cats outdoors. If you think about it, cats are the original adventure animals. They globe-hopped with Phoenician traders; sailed with Vikings; crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower to help settle the New World; and traveled in wagon trains with pioneers across prairies, plains and deserts. In 1950, a black-and-white kitten climbed Matterhorn with a group of alpinists. Clearly, cats are impressive adventurers. While exploring the great outdoors with their humans is nothing new to cats, it sometimes surprises their people how well they take to it. Emily Odum Hall of Macon, Ga., had previously tried leash-training a couple of her cats, but they wanted nothing to do with it. Then Sophie came along. She had a laid-back personality and enjoyed hanging out with Hall and her husband in their backyard. They ventured farther, to a concert in a park. Sophies adventures blossomed from there, and she has been joined by Kylo Ren, an adventure cat in training. They really like parks and being outside and smelling new smells and seeing new sights, Hall says. My husbands parents live in Florida on the St. Johns River and have a boat. Weve taken them out on the river, and they both really enjoy that. The best cats for an adventurous life tend to be either laid-back or bold. Sophie and Kylo Ren fall on the easygoing end of the spectrum. It was her temperament and her laidback personality that made us want to try it in the first place, Hall says. Sophie always has this look on her face like, Oh, man, this is so much fun. She just goes with the flow all the time. Physical condition need not hold a cat back. Sophie has a neurological condition called cerebellar hypoplasia that affects her coordination. She can walk with a leash and harness, but often she rides in a sling that Hall wears. Being able to carry Sophie and Kylo Ren that way is helpful for urban adventures or places they might encounter dogs, Hall says. The people we met who were taking their cat kayaking did so without a dry run, so to speak, but a little practice and acclimation beforehand is always a good idea. Exposing a cat to a kayak, canoe or standup paddleboard, for instance, could involve having it in the yard or home, allowing him to explore it at his leisure. Place treats on it for him to find. Go slowly, fit ting him with a flotation device, and reward frequently with treats while hes wearing it. For a larger boat, start by hanging out on it at the dock, letting him get used to sounds he might hear, such as the engine starting, boat horns or gulls squawking. Wherever you go with your adventure cat, dont forget necessary items, such as a portable water dish, a supply of food in case you dont get back before dinnertime, and for camping or boating, a litter box. A collar with ID and a microchip are musts as well. Its so much fun having adventure cats, Hall says. You see people with their dogs all the time, and having two cats I can take places is a lot of fun.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NEWS A21 3 U.S. LOCATIONS NOW OPEN NAPLES (Next to The Wine Loft) MIAMI // SARASOTA Positano Meets Naples CLOTHING BOUTIQUE Its All About FaceYours! FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20TH IN OUR NAPLES & FT. MYERS LOCATIONS This is us Noche en Blanco (Night of White) is an annual event in Tucson, Ariz. A prominent downtown street is blocked off, twinkling white light lights are strung from light pole to light pole, creating a sparkling canopy, and tables draped in white linen are set up for a community dinner thats been known to attract up to 2,000 people. Everyone brings their own food, china and stemware. Table captains build elaborate centerpieces. Paper lanterns create light. Ive Googled photos; its a beautiful, elegant event. All the guests wear white. A girlfriend of mine just moved to Tucson a few months ago and she was over the moon about being invited. She ordered a beautiful white cocktail dress from Rent-The-Runway, plus a long, white tulle skirt because she wasnt certain which one she would wear. Maybe you could do a costume change between courses, I jokingly suggested. Maybe she seriously considered. She was excited because while she spent time in Arizona as a teenager, this was her first time living there as an adult singleton and Noche En Blanco would be her first major social event. She couldnt wait to meet new people. Shes an excellent cook and was planning to take two dishes to the feast. It sounded like such a fun event; similar dinners are staged in cities around the country. Ive thought about finding ways to get it started on Fifth Avenue in downtown Naples, or First Street in Fort Myers. One day after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, my friend texted me and told me that Noche En Blanco had been canceled. Organizers sent out a message citing the Tucson Police Departments concern for security and public safety. My friend was disappointed. But when the nation is reeling because 59 people were killed and 527 were injured by a gunman just because they attended a country music concert the least of her concerns was whether to wear a dress or a skirt to an event. Here in Southwest Florida, I get a feeling of uneasiness when I glance up at the street lights and see all the surveillance cameras in downtown Fort Myers. I was on the original planning committee for Zombicon in 2008 when it was just a quaint little festival in the Patio De Leon to celebrate George Romeros Day of the Dead filmed in the River District in 1985. The event outgrew its space in the patio courtyard and zombies from all over descended on the neighborhood. One year, according to organizers, the crowd grew to nearly 20,000. My husband and I had surpassed the age of dressing up like zombies and doing Michael Jacksons Thriller dance through the streets of downtown, but we didnt care we got decked out in our homemade costumes and attended every year. It was fun. In October 2015, Todd and I were on a fall foliage trip to Tennessee. We werent in Fort Myers to attend the Zombicon the Zombicon that made national news when a shooter started firing into the crowd, killing a 20-year old and wounding five others. We watched the footage on CNN as I started frantically calling friends who I knew would be there. Two years later, the shooter is still at large. Zombicon ended and there are now 115 surveillance cameras downtown. Canceling outdoor events that bring in large crowds is one way to deal with the fear of being shot by a madman with an artillery of high-powered weapons or, as in the case of Zombicon, a teenager or man in his early 20s with a semi-automatic handgun. Is staying indoors easier than reviewing gun laws to make it more difficult to purchase weapons specifically designed to kill large numbers of people? If laws didnt change after 20 young children and six teachers were killed in a mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in 2012, will the deaths of 59 concertgoers make a difference? I dont know the answer to those questions but I know the stories from the Las Vegas survivors make a difference. There were more than 20,000 fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival that night and theyre telling us everything. These people who look like us and talk like us and cry like us are providing vivid, horrible details about what its like when bullets start raining down like hail.

The Industry Diversification Project is run by the Regional Economic Research Institute and led by Naples native and economics Ph.D. Christopher Westley. The RERI publishes the FGCU Industry Diversification Report four times a year, with studies coming out six months after the analyzed quarter. The project uses the Industry Diversification Index, a tool calculated each quarter using employment data collected from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. For the state of Florida, the index improved in the first quarter of 2017, according to FGCUs Industry Diversity Project. Floridas IDI ranking improved to 21st out of 50 states, a three-state rise after placing 24th in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in diversification on the state level is a welcome trend because more diverse economies are better able to weather swings in the business cycle than FGCU study says it has improved statewide but fallen in SWFL INDUSTRY DIVERSITYSEE DIVERSITY, A24 The increase in diversification on the state level is a welcome trend.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Women Can Win With MoneyIts no secret millions of Americans have not saved enough for retirement. Thats especially true of women, for unsurprising reasons: Women, in general, are paid less than men. The average woman spends 10 years out of the workforce, caring for others. Wives tend to be less involved than husbands in household investing and retirement planning. The divorce rate is high, and most married women outlive their husbands. Some two-thirds of the elderly poor in America are women.Even facing headwinds, though, women can succeed financially in part because they tend to be good with money, often outperforming men. University of California researchers Brad Barber and Terrance Odean found that men are more likely than women to be overconfident and to trade frequently (which can be costly). Single men, for example, traded 67 percent more than single women, reaping lower returns. Their study found that men trade 45 percent more than women and earn annual risk-adjusted net returns that are 1.4 percent less than those earned by women. A Vanguard study found that women were more likely to sign up for 401(k) plans and to sock away a greater percentage of their income than men.Want to get started investing? Here are some guidelines for women and men: Read up and learn before you start. Dont jump into any investment without understanding it and being comfortable with it. Read John Bogles The Little Book of Common Sense Investing (Wiley, $25), LouAnn Loftons Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: And Why You Should, Too (HarperBusiness, $15) or One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch (Simon & Schuster, $17).Dont be afraid to take on some risk. Low-risk investments such as savings bonds, CDs or money market funds tend to grow slowly. As long as youre investing your money for five to 10 or more years, youll likely do best in the stock market and can ride out short-term market downturns. Share this article with anyone you know (male or female) who can use a pointer toward financial independence. The Oprah EffectLured by the Oprah effect, I bought some shares of Weight Watchers when she endorsed the company and when the stock fell, I didnt sell! Ugh. Buying the shares was an emotional decision, though I have worked in the health and wellness arena my entire career and wasnt exactly buying blind. I knew the Weight Watchers way of eating is sound. I never read anything about the companys financial condition, management or growth strategy, though. I just put my money on Oprah. Lesson learned. Jane Diamond, PhiladelphiaThe Fool Responds: The Oprah-andWeight-Watchers story wasnt over when you shared this experience with us about a year ago. On the day in 2015 when Oprah announced she was an active investor in the company, with a 10 percent stake in it and a seat on its board, shares more than doubled. They surged further and then began retreating. Its generally a positive sign when a major investor makes a significant commitment to a company, but thats not enough. Weight Watchers had been struggling with increased online competition and declining demand and revenue, and it ended up replacing its CEO. It has been turning itself around, and since you wrote to us, shares have quadrupled. A lesson here is that its good to be very patient if you really believe in a company and its prospects. If you dont, though, sell. Blazing ProfitsRecently sporting a market value of $17.4 billion, Nucor (NYSE: NUE) is Americas largest steel producer and North Americas largest recycler of steel. The use of electric arc furnaces and mini-mills has helped fuel its success, and its known for avoiding layoffs, too. Built on a solid financial foundation, Nucor has posted profits in many tough years when peers posted losses.Nucor likes to get stronger during industry downturns, when bargains abound. Since 2009, it has built a direct reduced iron ore facility to help ensure it has access to low-cost steel for its mills. It has also acquired steel foundation distributor Skyline Steel, flat-rolled steel mill Gallatin Steel, two cold finished bar mills, a plate mill, and three pipe and tube mills. Nucor also expanded operations at multiple facilities, and its building a new mill in Canada and another through a joint venture in Mexico. Nucors business is exposed to many risks, including a general economic downturn and the potential for a flood of imports that would drive steel prices down. Yet management has executed well through such environments in the past. The companys track record of allocating resources between managing capacity and expanding into more favorable market niches has allowed Nucor to increase its dividend annually for more than 40 years.

(Answer: Toyota) Deducting CommissionsQHow do I deal with brokerage trading commissions when recording my gains and losses on my tax return? G.K., Keene, New HampshireAIts smart to factor them in, lest you pay extra taxes unnecessarily. Since the costs of buying or selling a capital asset (stock, in this example) are capital costs, they should be part of your calculations determining your cost basis and proceeds. Imagine, for example, that you bought $1,000 of stock and paid a $15 commission. Your actual cost is $1,015. You sell the stock later, when its worth $1,600, paying another $15 to the brokerage. Your net sales proceeds (generally, the amount reported to you by your broker at year-end via Form 1099-B) are $1,585 $1,600 less $15. So on your tax return, you would report a gain of $570 ($1,585 less $1,015). If youd ignored the commissions, your gain would be $600, and your taxes higher. These little sums can add up. If you think youre paying a lot in commissions, know that many reputable brokerages charge just $10 or less per trade.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY less diverse ones, Mr. Westley said of the increase. The employment data is used to calculate the share of employment from each of the 21 two-digit North American Industry Classification industry sectors. Among the sectors included are construction, transportation and warehousing, real estate and arts and entertainment. A higher index suggests a more diverse workforce and is computed quarterly around the time of the release of workforce data by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Since this data is released with a six-month lag, the rankings refer to the state of the workforce for the first quarter of 2017, which spans January through March. The report also stated that the NaplesImmokalee-Marco Island metropolitan statistical area ranking fell to sixth in the state after maintaining the No. 1 ranking among 22 Florida MSAs for the previous three quarters. The intense seasonality we witness on the MSA and workforce region level can lead to decreases in diversification in the winter months, Dr. Westley said of the studys recent results. Commenting on the most recent findings of the FGCU study, Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce president Michael Dalby wanted readers of the study to be clear regarding what the IDI represents. Dr. Westley and his team do a great job on these reports. Lots of good data to comb through, and they do a good job explaining it all, Mr. Dalby said. However, the diversity index is something that weve had a bit of heartburn over, especially when Collier County was listed for multiple months as one of the top one or two most diversified economies in the state. Mr. Dalby said that while the diversity index does account for the many different types of industry and business found in the Southwest Florida region, it doesnt factor in their actual impact from an economic standpoint. As we look around, we see an economy dominated by lower-wage hospitality, agriculture, retail and service-sector jobs the diversity index notes that we have businesses in lots of different industry sectors construction, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, tourism, retail, food services, landscaping, etc. but not the economic impact of those jobs. So, with that background, we understand that we do have a fairly diversified economy it just doesnt have any dominant, higher-wage industry sector. The graphic provided by FGCU showing the Industry Diversification Index for Southwest Florida and the state depicts a much more seasonal trend in SWFL following the Great Recession in 2008. However, the economy has shown recovery and a return to levels that coincide with the rest of the state, according to Dr. Westley. Usually the case is during season in SWFL, the industries that tend to make us less diverse anyway are the ones that pick up the most, explaining the seasonal diversity gap in the Index numbers. Mr. Dalby believes some observers of the index numbers may also be thrown off by their remembrance of the Great Recession. Ideally, a diverse economy would help you weather a recession, because your economic eggs werent all in the same basket. But the recession hit Collier County pretty hard, especially in the real estate and seasonal visitor (hospitality) sectors that seem to dominate our economy our diversity probably dipped during the recession as companies closed. Mr. Dalby was ultimately encouraged by the strong ranking Naples scored in the Industry Diversification Index, but thinks theres still more work to be done finding the right mix for Southwest Florida. Overall, I think its good for Collier to have an economy that isnt overly dominated by jobs in one or two particular sectors. That said, we constantly need to push for more higher-skill and higher-wage jobs to grow more economic opportunity. The other two MSAs in Southwest Florida Cape Coral-Fort Myers and Punta Gorda ranked seventh and 21st, respectively, during the same quarter. Local diversification measures tend to fall during tourist season, Mr. Westley said. Still, the Naples and the Cape Coral-Fort Myers MSAs are ranked ahead of the median. Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce President Tiffany Esposito was encouraged by the recent numbers. With recent additions to the region with Hertz, HercRentals, and other corporate entities, she is confident Bonita Springs is doing its part to help the region become more diverse economically. We are always working to diversify our economy. We strive for industry diversification through our business retention and expansion efforts so that the region can be more resilient during the next recession or economic crisis, Ms. Esposito said. In addition to the chamber, she represents the Bonita Springs-Estero Economic Council as well. More industries provide more jobs, which provides a stronger talent recruitment and retention effort which, create a stronger local community. The Jacksonville MSA came in as the most diverse, while the Gainesville MSA ranked as the least diverse. Higherranked areas tend to attract disparate forms of capital investment. Gainesvilles investment is closely tied to the education sector, Mr. Westley said. Labor market data for the second quarter of 2017 will be released in December. For more information on the Regional Economic Research Institute, see www. DIVERSITYFrom page 22 The FGCU Industry Diversification Index is designed to take a value between 0 and 10, where the former would indicate a completely specialized economy and the latter would indicate an economy that is not concentrated in a particular industry.

Equities have risen to new highs day by day. But the flip side to this euphoria has been sudden and sometimes dramatic short-term volatility caused by the president. The president traveled to Puerto Rico and an off-the-cuff comment during a TV interview resulted in a dramatic free-fall in bonds tied to the island territory. So why did Puerto Rican bonds lose so much of their value and how will this affect the island and the rest of the country? Trumps comment came during a Fox news interview when he was discussing the massive amount of debt owed by Puerto Rico to its creditors. He stated that the territory owed a lot of money to big Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and that his administration was going to wipe that out. Investors reaction to that comment was swift and significant. Before Trumps comments, General Obligation Bonds (bonds backed by the full faith and credit of the Puerto Rican government) were trading at around 60 cents per par value. After the comment, the bonds fell to around 38 cents per par value, as investors panicked, thinking the bonds were going to be made worthless. Was the bond rout justified? There were several false statements in the presidents comments that would question this significant move. First, the majority of the bonds issued by Puerto Rico are not owned by large hedge funds and investment banks. In fact, only about 25 percent of the bonds are institutionally owned. The vast majority of the debt is owned by individual investors, many of them people living in Puerto Rico. So if the government did wipe out the debt, Main Street would bear the most pain, which is why there would be little congressional support behind it. But more significantly, we have laws, not a monarch or dictator who can just direct the government to transfer money from one group to another on a whim. Currently Puerto Rican debt holders are in bankruptcy court and it is the laws and courts that will determine how much they receive, not the president. So would I advise people to go out and buy as much Puerto Rican debt as possible at these price levels? No, I would be very cautious about owning the debt even after the drop in value. Prior to the island being ravaged by the hurricane, it was in significant financial troubles and most analysts predicted that bondholders would not fully recover their investments. That financial picture looks even bleaker today. The island government will need to spend significant money that it does not have to bring even basic services back on line. In addition, many Puerto Rican citizens are expected to permanently leave, rather than rebuild. This will further dampen future tax revenues which are needed to service the bonds. As for those people who currently own Puerto Rican bonds, I would follow the news very closely relating to proposed aid to the island. If the aid is structured as a loan from the U.S. government to the territory, that would be very bad for bondholders, as that debt may be a higher priority in repayment and leave even less money for existing bondholders. The bonds could eventually be worthless. But if the aid is structured as a grant, which would not need to be repaid, that could stimulate the island economy and be a significant boon to existing bondholders.

B16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at Above: Kalea Bays clubhouse has a lounge that opens out to the adults-only pool.

Forge Books. 368 pages. Hardcover $25.99. The fourth David Slaton novel keeps Ward Larsen on top of the spy thriller mountain. While it works well as a stand-alone novel, readers who know the series will gain even more from their longer exposure to Slaytons character, skills and past. As ever, the precision with which the author details Slatons planning and execution of his assignment is totally engaging. However, the handling of brilliant tradecraft is only part of the books appeal. Mr. Larsens plot develops from a powerful premise that echoes presentday realities and perhaps anticipates the future. Europe, and particularly France, is fighting what seems to be an end-of-days war against ISIS. Retired (except when on call to top level Mossad missions) operative and assassin David Slaton discovers a strange message that that seems to have been left for him alone. A computer memory stick holds a photo of a man named Zavier Baland, the fast-rising Frenchman slated to take over DGSI, his nations premier counterterrorist agency. The photo shocks Slayton, who recognizes the person as Ali Samir, an Islamic terrorist who Slayton murdered 15 years back. Or did he? Who is responsible for leaving this clue for Slayton? What should he do about it? If Samir survived to reinvent himself as Baland, is France about to install an ISIS secret agent as its bulwark against terrorism? Could anything be more dangerous for the French Republic? Can Baland be exposed and/or stopped? The plot is revealed through the alternating perspectives of several key players. Principal among these is Slayton, whose domestic life is portrayed as the antithesis of his murderous, if patriotic, occupation. His concern for his wife and child are consistently at war with his concern for Israel, Israels allies and humanistic values. Mr. Larsen enters Balands mind and probes deeper and deeper into Balands sense of self: his core identity and values. Like Slayton, he is a compromised family man. Readers are privy to the decisions Baland is formulating as the time of great crisis for France and for the West approach. The increasing frequency and violence of terrorist acts may or may not be his agenda. Mr. Larsen provides facts and perspectives through the presentation of two additional characters. One is a rather mysterious young woman, Malika, a terrorist operative of great skill and determination. She is a master of disguises and subterfuge. She is an expert marksman. Like Slaton, she is totally professional in choosing the best vantage points from which to gather information while keeping hidden, the best vantage points for firing her weapons. She is great at mind games. For instance, In the aftermath of an attack seemingly meant to assassinate him, Slaton discovers a flash drive with a plastic case on which his name appears. He is not an anonymous stone mason any longer. This is the flash drive with the photo of Baland. If it is Baland. The fourth key character is Aziz Uday. Still a young man, Uday has become the would-be caliphates information technology mastermind. However, he has become somewhat disillusioned with the excesses of ISIS. He and other ISIS operatives are run by Malika. Uday is commanded to finish work on an extensive database that will enable an enormous, last-ditch effort against France aimed at restoring ISISs credibility as its resources crumble. Moving in and out of the minds of this quartet, as well as the thoughts of several other characters, Ward Larsen slowly and deliberately reveals the information and the speculations that allow readers to tentatively piece together the shadowy puzzle of identities and motives coming into focus. Assassins Code is a dazzling exercise in balancing momentum and restraint, passion and cool-headedness, revelation and reticence. Its settings are marvelously drawn, and its mainspring is wound up tight.About the authorWard Larsen is a USA Today bestselling author, and four-time winner of the Florida Book Award. His first thriller, The Perfect Assassin, is currently being adapted into a major motion picture by Amber Entertainment and SND/ M6 Films. He has also been nominated for the Macavity Award. A former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, Mr. Larsen flew 22 missions in Operation Desert Storm. He has served as a federal law enforcement officer, airline captain and is a trained aircraft accident investigator. He lives in Sarasota.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWhen you step in front of an audience, you have weeks or maybe even a couple months of rehearsals under your belt. Now imagine youre an actor stepping on a stage in front of an audience without any idea whats going to happen next. Once youre standing in the lights, youre handed a script in an envelope one youve never seen or performed before. And then you begin, not knowing whats coming next, what will be demanded of you in the next line, the next page. Thats the basis of White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Iranian playwright Nissim Soleimanpour. The playwright specifically requests that the actor performing the piece have no prior knowledge of it. He or she sees it for the first time when standing in front of an audience, mere seconds from performing it. Talk about performing without a net. This one-person play is just one of seven offerings at this years Ringling International Arts Festival, Oct. 18-21, whose tagline is: Expect the unexplored, explore the unexpected. Dwight Currie, curator of performance at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, describes the festival, now in its ninth year, as a four-day, concentrated engagement with new ideas and new forms and new expressions in contemporary performance. The shows, offered multiple times over the course of the festival, include singing, music, theater, dance and multimedia performances. Each show runs approximately one hour; attendees can see three in one day. Its a rare opportunity for Southwest Floridians to experience avant-garde, innovative performances from around the world. The Ringlings promotional material describes White Rabbit Red Rabbit as a drama realized in real time by actor and audience together. Its conceit is that no one, including the actor, knows whats going to happen next, and they take the dramatic journey together. Its indicative of the kind of edgy, experimental shows RIAF presents. The playwrights stipulation, says Mr. Currie, is that this story should come out of the envelope with that immediacy. No rehearsal, no pre-reading, no set, no direction, no production. Just take it out of the envelope and read it to the audience and enact it. To do that, you have to have actors who are willing to take that chance. The actors performing in RIAFs White Rabbit Red Rabbit are from Sarasotas Urbanite Theatre, which Mr. Currie calls a very adventurous and risk-taking brave group. The one-person play will also be shown at the Urbanite Theatre from Oct. 25-Nov. 5. As a curator of the festival, the play is also a risk for Mr. Currie, because even he doesnt know whats going to happen. I have never read the script; I have no idea what its about, he admits. This totally, on everybodys part, needs to be taken on faith, that theres a playwright in Iran with a story to tell, and this is how hes chosen for this story to be told. Its very conventional in some ways: its an actor with a script with an audience. Its very unconventional in other ways: that everybody in that room is experiencing it for the first time. That opens it to misreadings, words you cant pronounce, sentences you dont understand, surprises in the script that call for the actor to act in a way theyre not prepared to do or (couldnt have) anticipated. It calls on the actor to employ whatever is at hand in the telling of the story; some have called upon audience members, if they want. Audiences have to be adventurous and willing to step out in faith in attending this play. Theres no way we can explain to anybody what theyre going to see, because no one has seen what theyre going to see, and no one else will ever see it again, Mr. Currie says. My advice to our box office is: If people need to know exactly what theyre going to see, if you need that absolute affirmation of content, this isnt for you. If on the other hand, you want to be surprised Thumb cinemaAnother highly anticipated show at this years RIAF is Volker Gerlings Portraits in Motion. Over 14 years, this German artist walked around his country, camping on the land and taking consecutive blackand-white photographs of people he met. He turned them into flipbooks. In Portraits in Motion, he shows these flipbooks, projected onto a big screen, while telling stories about the people. He calls them flipbook movies or thumb cinema. Portraits in Motion won the Total Theatre Award for Innovation at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Volker Gerling will take 36 or more consecutive pictures of a person, a group of people, or a place, says Mr. Currie. He flips through them (for us.) Doing that, he can control how long, or how fast those images come and go. Hes interested in the stories behind those images. Mr. Gerlings portraits are moving, thoughtful, lyrical, humorous. A woman laughs. A teenage couple kiss. A woman lights a candle in the darkness, and her face is softly illuminated. I did not want to miss anything along the way, so I chose to go sl owly, on foot, he writes in his artists statement. Onstage, for a brief moment, the people in my flipbooks come to life. They are so real that sometimes you feel you have known the people in them for years. I tell their stories, and tell of my own, big, small, serious, and bizarre encounters. My show is a gentle and thoughtful reflection about the fleeting nature of the moment and what it means when people meet each other. Whats beautiful about it is that its handheld, says Mr. Currie. That flipping through, and holding in his hand, these brief twoor three-second encounters as it all unfolds, its a beautiful expression. If you slow it down, theres more there than you might think. The man moves and engages in the world at a pace that results in deeper understanding and illumination. I just like what he does. He takes the time to see, and he respects what he sees and the people he is seeing Its still images, one at a time. Its just like that Ferris Bueller quote: Life moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Thats what Volker Gerling does, he sees the world in these moments, these images. Other showsThe remainder of the shows at this years RIAF includes performances by Nobuntu, an a cappella quintet from Zimbabwe that performs Zimbabwean folksongs, Afro Jazz and gospel. They also perform with traditional instruments (minimal percussion and thumb piano) and dance. Theyre superstars in their own country, says Mr. Currie. Theyre coming to this country for the very first time. In November, theyll be performing at the Lincoln Center in New York City. Nobuntu was nominated for Best Musician of the Year at the Zimbabwe International Womens Awards in 2015. Their name means an African concept of valuing humbleness, l ove, unity and family from a womans perspective. James McGinn, a native of Sarasota now living in Antwerp, Belgium, returns to Florida to present Ing an Die, described as a shape-shifting love story told amidst a pre-apocalyptic landscape. Mr. Currie describes it as a highly conceptual choreographed work, saying, It explores a lot of new work in dance. EnsemblenewSRQ will present two programs. It will perform The Space Around You: Musical Reflections by John Luther Adams in the Turrell Skyspace. James Turrell sculpts natural light with his work in much the same way John Luther Adams sculpts and gives form to environmental sound reflective of bird sound and the sounds of the wind, says Mr. Currie. The ensembles second program, The Magical World of Berios Sequenzas will be performed in the Huntington Gallery. Berios Sequenzas are extraordinary demanding solo works for musicians, says Mr. Currie. I would be surprised if thered be another ensemble touring these works. You have to have artists who are willing to take the risks, and they wanted to do it. eVenti Verticale, an Italian performance group, consists of two brothers, one with a background in circus and the other in theater. Theyve created an extraordinary physical comedic theater on a vertical stage, says Mr. Currie. That stage is a video screen approximately three stories tall. They perform on it by hanging on cables above the audiences head. Its about two guys who, I like to think, are trapped in a cell phone, he says. They deal with vintage video gaming; its live action in the rigors or constraints or liberties of a digitalized world. Its great, big, loud, flashy, colorful, good fun. The dance duo Monica Bill Barnes & Co. present Happy Hour. Their goal, in their own words, is to take dance where it doesnt belong. The conceit of the performance is that the audience is uneasily mingling at an after-hours party. Its not very swanky, Mr. Currie says. The food is a bag of chips or peanuts, you get your soda and bad red wine or bad white wine. Someone might be singing karaoke. Everybodys maybe a wee bit uncomfortable with each other. And then Monica Bill Barnes and her partner Anna Bass show up Just two awkward guys in an awkward situation, and basically dont make it any better. Its comic but also very touching, he says. Her choreographic style is to find the dance and poetry at those times when we are our most awkward. Ballet is elevating, and so beautiful and magnificent and wondrously expressive of what the human form can do. On the other end of the spectrum, were clumsy and stupid and awkward too. This performance is never done the same way twice. The troupe has performed with people as diverse as This American Life host Ira Glass and author/visual artist Maira Kalman. This years line-up requires a sense of adventure. If thats how you like to encounter and engage with art, says Mr. Currie, then this festival is fabulous for you, and worth the trip from anywhere.

My friend Mike paused and gasped, Oh, my gosh, Scott! There are my chairs! There was a set of black lacquer Hitchcock-style chairs, their stenciled designs worn from over a century of use. At first glance, they were identical to the mixed set of stenciled chairs Id found for Mike everywhere from thrift stores to yard sales to antiques shops. But the chairs Id given Mike were very modern in their construction, from the screws used to join the backs to the seats to the nylon glides on the bottoms of the legs to keep the feet from marring the floors. Still, the design was classic. And it was a classic with which I had grown up. If memory serves me, Whites Furniture sold the Hitchcock line near downtown Fort Myers, along with Lane cedar chests. Barber Furniture and Roberts Furniture, also in Fort Myers, sold Tell City furniture that was inspired by the Early American designs. And who can forget Ethan Allen, which had a whole line of stenciled furniture? Lambert Hitchcock massproduced his stenciled chairs in the first half of the 19th century, and by the end of the 182 0s, his Connecticut factory was producing more than 15,000 chairs a year. As innovative as he was as a designer, he was not successful as a businessman, and the factory folded, as did another venture. It wasnt until the 1940s that the Hitchcock name was revived as a furniture line. That continued until 2006. In 2010, a new group bought the name, artwork and plans for the furniture, and you now can order much of the Hitchcock line at Bought: S alvation Army Family Store, 2 255 Davis Blvd., Naples; 774-4347 or programs-services/thrift-stores/ Paid: $39 The Skinny: People bought anything during the 1976 Bicentennial celebration of U.S. independence I remember David Brenner selling Bicentennial Philadelphia dirt as a stunt for The Mike Douglas Show. Merchants offered a little of everything, from the cheesy to the sublime. These green chairs, which have a motif of presidential homes, veer toward the sublime, and were made in limited editions. The caned seats are dressier than the woven rush seats you often see on these, as befits a limited edition. The finishes are quite nice. Thomas Jeffersons Monticello is the home illustrated on the back of the chair I bought. Others more commonly seen are George Washingtons Mount Vernon, John Adams house at Quincy, Mass., and Andrew Jacksons Hermitage. But Hitchcock also had a design inspired by Lyndon Johnsons LBJ Ranch one of those has an asking price online of $1,000. Others similar to mine are listed at more than $300 online, leaving me sitting pretty any way you look at it. THE FIND:Hitchcock Bicentennial chairSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Hitchcock chair was made in the mid-1970s to commemorate the U.S. Bicentennial. A detail of the chairs back splat, which depicts Thomas Jeffersons home, Monticello.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Boo! Roar!October 20 22 ARTS COMMENTARYHanging with Babs in the basementMany worship at the shrine of Barbra Streisand. Many gay men, especially, revere her. And theres much to admire: the voice, the acting, the directing, the rags-to-riches Brooklyn-to-Broadway story. The drama. Her humor. The unconventional beauty. She is one of the few performers to have an Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award on her shelf.Alex More, a struggling actor (OK, a broke, unemployed, uninsured actor) is enthralled with her. And when, in Jonathan Tolins play Buyer & Cellar, he stumbles upon a job that involves working for her, hes ecstatic.Apparently, Streisand has set up her basement in her Malibu home like a Main Street exhibit, complete with shops filled with dolls, candy, antiques and costumes she wore for various movies, TV specials and album covers. Theres even a frozen yoghurt machine. Alex is beside himself, giddy with joy.His job duties arent exactly clear, but hes supposed to oversee the shops in the cellar, keeping everything clean and presentable.Its the flimsiest of premises. While its true that Streisand does have a basement like that, which she wrote about in her book My Passion for Design, the playwright makes it very clear that this play is pure fantasy, even to the point of having Alex say, This is a complete work of fiction This is not journalism.Kody C. Jones (education director at the Florida Repertory Theatre) plays the role of Alex with great enthusiasm. The elfin performer, who sports a fauxhawk, is very lively and likeable. And he is on, from the moment he steps onto the stage. Its almost as if hes chugged a case of Red Bull beforehand. Its just him, for the duration of the play, and he knows he has to capture, then keep our attention throughout the entire show.He re-enacts a handful of other characters, including his boyfriend, a friend who tells him about the job and Streisands dour household manager. Alex eventually does get to meet Streisand, who wanders down into the basement at one point. Mr. Jones also does Streisands dialogue, though he warns us in the beginning, I dont do impressions. Enough people do her even some women. We, the audience, are supposed to fill in the gaps, he tells us. Its a good thing were warned, because Mr. Joness Streisand is just OK. Im not sure if I wouldve known it was she if he hadnt told us. (But his Jimmy Stewart impersonation from Its a Wonderful Life is unmistakable.) His Streisand, at least on opening night, is just a little off, like a name or a word thats on the tip of your tongue that you cant quite recall. To me, at times, it felt like a note thats just slightly out of tune, and that nagged at me.But while he doesnt get the voice quite right, hes more on-target with the gestures.Alex claims that before he started the job, I was not so much of a Barbra queen, but working in her cellar with her clothing and hundreds of acquired items sends him into rapture. And then, one day, Streisand herself goes down into her basement, and the two start talking.Theatre Conspiracy founder and director Bill Taylor designed the set an oversized white door with two semi-circular store windows on either side. (Unfortunately, there was some kind of malfunction or misdirection on opening night, and the windows contents, on a kind of Lazy Susan rotating platform, went through a number of different arrangements before finally settling on the correct one.) In front of the stores sits a burgundy and gold chaise lounge so magnificent Streisand herself would probably declare it Gor-jus! Mr. Jones makes good use of it, perching on it, reclining upon it and draping himself over it throughout the play.The music also seemed intrusive at times, beginning and ending abruptly. (We get to hear the opening lines of The Way We Were a couple of times.) It would be more effective if the music faded in and faded out, rather than just stopping.Buyer & Cellar questions how well an average person can get to know a celebrity, and whether the two can ever truly become friends. The problem is, Mr. Tolins material doesnt go far enough and doesnt give Mr. Jones quite enough to work with. Its a missed opportunity, barely glancing over the subject matter. The play feels like a fantasy or a wishful supposition turned into a one-man play, but doesnt explore the concept or its main characters as deeply as one might wish. You dont have to love Barbra Streisand to get a kick out of Buyer & Cellar, but fans should especially enjoy it.

FREE TEST RIDES10565 Tamiami Trail North 239-370-8640 CONTRACT BRIDGEAsleep at the switchBY STEVE BECKERA fine declarer, besides playing his cards well, does everything he can to induce the defenders to make a mistake. Take this case where declarer combined both qualities to make a doubled contract that seemed doomed from the start. West led a club, taken by dummys ace, and South faced his first problem how to handle the spades so as to lose only one trump trick. (He also had two heart and two diamond losers to worry about.) After deciding that East had the trump ace but probably not A-J-x, declarer led a low spade from dummy. East went up with the ace and played the diamond ace, hoping West had the king and could give him a ruff. But when West produced the deuce on the ace, denying the king, East returned the king of clubs instead, ruffed by South. Declarer now made the key play when he led a low heart to the ace, West following suit with the seven and East the four. It was a very innocent-looking play that might have caught anyone asleep at the switch. But East was soon to learn why South had taken the ace so early in the proceedings. Declarer next cashed the spade and diamond queens, preparing for the situation he hoped now existed. His efforts were amply rewarded when he led a heart from dummy, forcing East to win with the king. East had only clubs left and had to lead one, allowing South to dispose of his jack of hearts while ruffing in dummy. Declarer then claimed the rest to make four spades doubled. Had South disclosed his intentions by drawing trumps and cashing the K-Q of diamonds before playing the ace of hearts, East might have jettisoned his king under the ace and thereby defeated the contract. Perhaps East should have done that anyway, but Souths smoothas-silk operation caught him completely by surprise.

Stronger (Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson) After losing his legs from just above the knee in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) adapts to a new lifestyle with his girlfriend (Maslany), mother (Richardson) and friends helping him. Its an inspiring true story, and Gyllenhaals performance is Oscar-worthy. Rated R.Patti Cakes 1/2(Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Cathy Moriarty) Patti (Macdonald), an overweight white girl in New Jersey, dreams of becoming a rap star. Macdonald makes a splash in what could be a breakout performance, but the movie is too predictable to be truly memorable. Rated R.The Trip To Spain 1/2(Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny, 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 (Berry) will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son (Correa). The story is thin and the action is decent; too bad for Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. Rated R. F ILM CAPSULE S

LATEST FILMSVictoria & AbdulIs it worth $10? YesIt was an unlikely relationship at an odd time in a forbidden place. Usually Hollywood makes a love story of such a construct, and to be sure, Victoria & Abdul contains l ove, just not of the sexual kind. Instead, its titular figures share a Harold & Maude type of friendship that feels both organic and endearing. As a result, director Stephen Frears (Philomena) film is a heartwarming success, a moving story of fulfillment manifesting in the most unlikely of places.By the late 1800s, Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) of England was near the end of her reign and, to put it simply, she was over it. Her beloved husband Albert died more than 30 years earlier, and subsequently her life became a lonely existence of meetings, state dinners and mindless ceremony. Shes bored at the repetitiveness and ready to die. That is, until she meets Abdul (Ali Fazal). An Indian servant in England to present her highness with a noble coin, Abdul dares to make eye contact with the queen, catches her fancy, and a symbiotic relationship ensues. She enjoys his company, frankness and ability to open her mind to new and different things. He tells her about India, teaches her Urdu, gives her a taste of Indian food and provides her with a sense of purpose. She grants him privileges, such as bringing his family to live in royal housing and being one of her most trusted confidantes. This is all to the dismay of the rest of the royal family, her advisors and staff, all of whom view Abdul as an intruder they need to get rid of. Ironically, this makes Victoria and Abduls bond even stronger. In fairness, Victorias people have reason to be suspicious. At this time England has recently taken over India, and Muslim soldiers are attacking British forces in India as a response. Abdul is Muslim and comes from meager means, so him doing and saying whatever is necessary to live a royal lifestyle is feasible. Her family and staff, however, fear Abdul wants to embarrass Her Majesty. Its an interesting social dynamic that Frears deftly incorporates, and it makes the movie multi-dimensional and dramatically stronger. Lee Halls screenplay is based on the book by Shrabani Basu, who discovered Victoria and Abduls friendship during a 2003 visit to the former queens summer home. It had largely been eradicated from history prior to then, and given that only select moments of their relationship are documented we must surmise that theres a fair amount of artistic license in play here. Thats okay: As long as the spirit of their connection is appropriately captured a few cinematic embellishments to make the movie more enjoyable are welcome. The only real flaw in Victoria & Abdul is its frequently shifting tone: It goes from earnest friendship to lighthearted moments to serious drama seemingly on a whim, and this lack of narrative balance is unsettling. Thankfully by the end its the relationship between Victoria and Abdul that you remember most, which is how it should be. o a n V s h dan >> Dench was Oscar-nominated for playing Queen Victoria in Mrs. Brown (1997), about Victorias post-Albert bond with her Scottish servant, John Brown.Did you know?

Before the meeting date, however, Gidion choses to end his life by suicide. Heather never expects the bereaved mother to show up on the day and time of the meeting, but Corryn keeps the appointment, and together the women consider whether Gidion could have been bullied severely, or whether he could have been an abuser. Using minimal costuming and sets, and with scripts in hand, the actresses focus directly on their tortured characters as mother and teacher grapple with the desire to point blame away from themselves at the same time each questions hers own culpability. Gidions Knot premiered at Shepherdstowns Contemporary American Theater Festival in 2012 and is now making the national rounds. Johnna Adams has given us a play that forces us to ask a lot of questions about our contemporary society, said TNPs Associate Artistic Director and ETC curator Jessica Walck, who acts as director of this reading. Have we just become blame shifters? Have bureaucratic decisions shackled us against doing what is humanly right? Considering the violent times we live in, can we afford to not react to violent ideas? What should the relationship be between parent, teacher and student to truly make a difference on todays youth? As a society, we are culturally moving into times of social isolation, how far is too far? We know there is a problem but how do we fix it? A talkback with the director and two actors will take place immediately after the performance. If I have learned anything from this play, its that communication is the key to change, Ms. Walck said. I hope many in the audience will want to stay and discuss the issues the play brings up. Gidions Knot is the first full-length published play that TNP is exploring through its ETC Readers Theatre program as a possible choice for a full production in the companys 2018-19 season. The audience feedback we receive during the talkback will be a vital part of our decision process, Ms. Walck said.

C24 WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Pre-Thanksgiving BBQ feast moves to Cambier Park this year SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Farm City BBQ of Collier County moves to Cambier Park in downtown Naples this year. Hosted by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County and with deep roots in the local business and agricultural communities, the 62nd annual feast is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22. Over the years the day-before-Thanksgiving tradition has raised more than $300,000 for nonprofit organizations that benefit local youth leadership development programs. The National Farm City Council was formed 62 years ago in an effort to help bring together business and agricultural communities. Their goal was to demonstrate the interdependence of a vibrant network of farmers and business owners that help support the economy and provide the basic essentials that every citizen needs. From the truck driver to the rancher, the fisherman, the futures broker and the biotechnology scientist, they all play an important role in making sure that Americans have access to a healthy and abundant supply of food. In Collier County, the Farm City BBQ was formed in a similar way. Event volunteers remember when area farmers had a bad year of crops. The business leaders reached out to the farmers, inviting them for a barbecue and sharing in the little produce that was available so that their families wouldnt go hungry on Thanksgiving Day. A year later, the Immokalee farming community wanted to reciprocate the hospitality, so they invited the business leaders for a BBQ in the country. Since then, the event has rotated from city to country locations; last years site was Seminole Immokalee Casino, and the year before was Naples Municipal Airport. This years event chairman is Bill Barker, chairman and president/publisher of the Naples Daily News. Beneficiaries of the 2017 barbecue are the Collier County 4-H Association, Youth Leadership Collier, the Collier County Junior Deputies League and Key Club International.About the beneficiariesThe Collier County 4-H Association funds and supports the activities of Collier County 4-H, reaching more than 7,600 students every year. In addition to traditional 4-H agricultural programs, Collier County 4-H students learn how to build and program robots, create maps using drones, write and deliver effective speeches and become leaders through numerous other hands-on experiences. Programs take place in Collier County Public Schools during the school day, in after school settings and in many traditional 4-H clubs throughout the community. Youth Leadership Collier empowers students to become effective and ethical leaders, showcases Collier County through field work with key organizations and encourages students to come back to (or stay in) Collier County to begin their begin careers and community leadership. In cooperation with the Collier County Sheriffs Office, the Collier County Junior Deputies League helps prepare local youth to become responsible, law-abiding citizens. The leagues 34-acre site in eastern Collier County is used for youth activities throughout the year, and plans are underway to add a pavilion, camp centers with restrooms, six campsites with fire rings and a fishing dock to expand programs for Collier youth. Key Club International is the high schoolbased service organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Twelve Collier County high school Key Clubs provide more than 600 members with opportunities to perform community service and be mentored in leadership, communication and other vital development skills.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOThe Chianti connectionTheres one wine-growing area thats probably among everybodys favorite: Chianti. We all love pizza, pasta, red sauces and the other cuisines that are so characteristic of the area, but theres lots more to explore, and so many Tuscan wines to appreciate. Plus, the area has changed quite a bit in the last few years in the way it makes and classifies its wine, so a bit of catching up is certainly in order. The region of Tuscany is mostly the area west and southwest of Florence, to the coast. It includes the walled city of Lucca (well worth a visit) and Pisa, as well as the famous winemaking towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Maremma and Bolgheri. Thats the easy part. How the wines are classified is a bit more fun to figure out. The Chianti area is divided into several sub-regions. The most famous is Chianti Classico, which are the bottles with the black rooster logo that youll see on the neckband. But other regions, such as Rufina, Colli Senesi (Siena Hills) and Colli Fiorentini (Florentine Hills) produce wines that are also well worth a try. The major grape used in the traditional (and legally specified) Chianti blend or recipe is Sangiovese, which must comprise at least 75 percent of the contents. Other reds, such as Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Syrah can also be used in smaller quantities. Back in the day, we used to drink Chianti out of a rounded bottle that came in a straw basket. In Italian this type of bottle is called a fiasco, and theres a reason for that. We dont drink it any more (and neither should you), having discovered so many other delightful alternatives. Most wines from the various Chianti regions are legally classified loosely according to quality. Youll see the letters DOC or DOCG on the label or neck band. These classifications are decreed and bestowed by the governing authorities. In the past few years, they initiated another classification called Gran Selezione, which is given only to Classico wines that have been aged for a minimum of 2 years. In Italy, as well as other places like France and Spain, wine is not considered a beverage. Its food, and part of a meal like everything else on the table. So Tuscan wines, with their high acidity and firm tannins, pair perfectly with tomato dishes, which are also acidic and contain a considerable amount of salt. This salty component, incidentally, helps to modify and calm down the tannins of the wines. The tasting panel and I were delighted to recently evaluate a wide range of Tuscan wines, and some of our favorites are listed here. There are more, and well come back to them another time. Sample widely. Selvapiana Chianti Rufino 2014 ($17) Translucent reddish-tawny in the glass, this wine offers notes of leaves, tobacco and red currant. The currant notes come through boldly on the palate, with a great balance of acidity and tannin. While most Chianti is best as an accompaniment to food, this one can be enjoyed on its own. WW 88-89. Luce della Vite Lucente Toscana 2014 ($18) Gorgeous deep ruby color in the glass with aromas of cherry, blackberry and black plum. The concentrated flavors of black cherry, leather and pepper are nicely balanced with firm tannins. A great choice alone or with food. Aged mostly in new French oak, this is a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese. WW 92. Le Volte DellOrnellaia Toscana 2015 ($28) Theres an enormous burst of up-front aromas, including smoke and black fruit. The palate is full-bodied, round and balanced, offering strong accents of blueberry. We loved it. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and about 13 percent Sangiovese. WW 92-93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Why do sulfites in wine sometimes give people headaches? Brett H., Fort LauderdaleA: They dont. Generally, people who experience headaches from red wine are sensitive to the histamines that occur as a natural by-product of fermentation. Some asthmatics do experience a sensitivity to sulfites, but this is relatively rare. c t a g b d 239.389.6901 OR


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 12-18, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 ) 239.455.5111 CUISINE REVIEWVegan Kitchen offers meatless cuisine you can really sink your teeth intoOK, I can hear the carnivores among you saying, Vegan? Oh, no. Im not eating rabbit food and ugh! tofu! Let me urge you to put aside your preconceptions and give this excellent little restaurant a try. Im betting it will make a convert out of you. By that I dont mean youll instantly become a vegan who eats no meat, dairy or other animal-derived products. But you are likely to discover that meals that dont center upon a slab of beef or pork can be delicious and satisfying. In fact, Vegan Kitchen serves a form of wheat protein that looks, tastes and chews like flank steak. Yes, flank steak. There is tofu, but you need not have any if you just cant go there. You might want to try it, though, because when cooked by someone who knows how to handle it and slather it in a really flavorful sauce, tofu can be darned tasty. Thats the end of the pep talk. Vegan Kitchen is the reinvented Loving Hut. It was created by some of the principals from the 7-year-old restaurant that closed a couple of months ago. The group moved about a mile south into a smaller space on Neapolitan Way that was once a Pizza Hut but now bears no resemblance to one whatsoever. The wood floors and celery-hued walls with soothing Asian-style paintings create a cozy and appetizing oasis. Theres a television, but it no longer broadcasts the Loving Hut channel, on which founder Supreme Leader Chiang Hai would appear seemingly perpetually. Instead, there was an NFL football game on. The smiling hostess who might also be one of the owners invited us to take a seat wherever we wanted. We chose a comfortable booth and started off with a strawberry smoothie ($4.95) and green tea lemonade ($4.95). The smoothie was light, refreshing and had a vibrant berry flavor. The lemonade contained a smattering of ice cubes but could have been colder. The flavor was a pleasing cross between tea and lemonade, the tea cutting the sweetness of the lemonade just enough. Crispy golden rolls ($6.95) and pot sticker dumplings ($7.95) arrived hot and fragrant. The rolls were crisp and golden, filled with cabbage, carrots, wheat protein, mushrooms, onions and garlic. They were tasty and had a great texture owing largely to the meaty wood-ear mushrooms and the aforementioned wheat protein that looks, tastes and feels like beef. The dumplings which can also be ordered steamed were chewy and full of flavor, stuffed with cabbage, carrots, soy protein, onions and garlic. Both had dipping sauce, which had a soy and ginger base. It was good, but the dumplings would have been just fine on their own. We split a good-sized avocado salad ($11.95) that was scrupulously fresh, with lettuce, avocado, soy protein, carrots, tomato, cucumber and sweet onions. The avocado was ripe but firm and the dressing was light and citrusy. There was both tofu and wheat protein in this salad, which was large and substantial enough to serve as a meal. Choosing from among the entrees might be the toughest part of dining here. Szechuan eggplant, lemongrass tofu, mushroom delight and kung pao, crispy cauliflower and vegan shrimp pasta all sounded intriguing (we didnt try the shrimp, but its vegan and the photos looked just like shrimp). We finally settled on the vegetable noodles ($11.95) and butternut curry ($11.95). Both bowls arrived hot and the aroma was incredibly appetizing. The curry contained a bountiful portion of b utternut squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, onions, coconut milk and curry. The stew had a distinctive curry flavor but wasnt spicy hot. The vegetables were cooked through without getting limp. This was a colorful and well-seasoned dish, complemented by the rice we ordered ($1.50 for white or brown). The vegetable noodles came with a choice of noodles. I selected rice noodles on which came mushrooms, tofu, broccoli, carrots and that meaty protein in a mild sauce. Like the curry, it wasnt spicy (those who like heat with their noodles can try the pad Thai or Singapore mei fun). It was a lovely and appealing dish that needed no meat to enhance it. For dessert, there is cheesecake (yes, vegan cheesecake), along with Oreo cake, carrot cake and sticky rice with mango ($6.95), which is one of my favorite desserts. The glutinous rice is lightly sweetened and, in this case, has a greenish hue. Its creamy, topped with sesame seeds and comes with sweet, firm wedges of mango. A great finish to any meal. Service was pleasant and efficient throughout our meal, even as the room began to fill with people. There was a man who bicycled in, a pair of older couples and a large Asian family that seemed to be regulars. Everyone was greeted warmly and fed well. My husband, who does not eat meat although he isnt a vegan, was happy to dine someplace where he didnt have to worry about whether there was chicken stock in the rice or bacon in his vegetables, although he eyed the meaty looking protein suspiciously until the server assured him that it was indeed wheat based. Vegans will be delighted with this place. I feel sure confirmed meat lovers will be pleasantly surprised as well. Give it a try. There are worse things than going meatless for one meal.

BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.comHis 34th book, published earlier this year, is a colorful coffee-table tome titled Decorating on the Waterfront. The author, well-known interior designer Carleton Varney, graces its cover in signature South Florida style, sporting an ascot, a pocket square and no socks. The inspiration for the book comes from the 80-year-olds life living on bays, lakes and oceans from Nahant, Mass., to Palm Beach. It takes an artful look at projects along the shores of California, the Caribbean and beyond through stunning images and inspirational stories. Ive always been on the water, said Mr. Varney, who grew up in the peninsula town outside Boston and now resides off South Ocean Boulevard. Decorating on the Waterfront is an homage to his experiences, both personally and professionally, and his passion for where land meets sea. I love it here, said Mr. Varney, who travels about half the year for business and as a much-sought-after guest lecturer. I love it here not because of the society scene but because I love being able to sit in my living room and see a beautiful view. One of his earlier books, 2006s In the Pink, recalls the accomplishments of Dorothy Draper, the famous American decorator for whom he started working fresh out of college. It was my first job, Mr. Varney said. I was 20 and at the beginning of my career. I would vacuum the floors, deliver and pick up items and actually work beside her. He now runs Ms. Drapers company as CEO, chairman and president. Ms. Draper really created the business of interior design, Mr. Varney said. She was at the forefront. Dorothy Draper & Company, established in 1925, is Americas oldest such firm. There were no schools back then, Mr. Varney said. There was no Savannah College of Art and Design. There wasnt a magazine on the market about decorating. There was a need. He worked for Ms. Draper for seven years she died in 1969 at age 79 and while he unmistakably has established his own legacy in living rooms, lobbies and luxury properties around the world, he got his chops under her employ. Ms. Draper said a room should look decorated before you put any furniture in it, and she was right, Mr. Varney said. Many people think that decorating is all about what you buy, what you fill a room with. Everything about decorating is about layers. You pick a schematic, and you have to know who you are within that schematic. The truth of the matter is, she was a genius, he continued. She became an icon in American design history not so much because of the fact that she did pretty rooms. She became an icon because she created a look. Mr. Varney has been dubbed Mr. Color for carrying on his mentors tradition of bold contrasts and mixing and matching palette shades in unexpected ways. I think I see color like other people dont, he said. His favorite? Green. Palm-tree green, pine-tree green, jungle-green, I like them all, Mr. Varney said. Colors relate to who you are. I dont like any colors that look like gravy, whether its chicken gravy or gravy thats on meatloaf or any kind of gravy. Its all terrible.

4 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY GARY SHANABARGERPlaying with light, textures and angles, Gary Shanabarger of Edward Gary Design creates rooms that attract attention. He finds glamour in every space, without overstepping its purpose or sacrificing its potential. Luxe Livings Michael Korb caught up with the designer to ask about his career Q: Is there a moment you knew you you wanted to be an interior designer? A: When I was 9 years old my parents began the process of building our home from the ground up. I remember looking at the plans and the interior and exterior finish selections and being very excited to be involved in those decisions. My parents encouraged me to voice my opinions and actually selected things based on my choices, which I was able to see come to fruition. After college, a career in New York City in visual design, and starting a luxury floral and event company in Naples, I ultimately found myself back to where I began now helping others to create their own dream homes. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: After first working under merchandisers in the visual retail world, I began creating temporary, but fully realized environments in the event world. As I began my foray into the interior design world, I worked alongside my sister, Kathryn Carbone, an accomplished interior designer on the East Coast of Florida, before striking out on my own to create Edward Gary Design. Q: Do you have a formula for how you build out a room? A: Each room has its own formula. Its own function. I have a conversation with the space. I listen to what it tells me. What the client requires. A piece of art, a favorite rug, a general feel... something thats intimate to the client that I can build around. I love nature and the play of light, interacting with the space as well as the environment beyond the space; the temperature of light. Q: Whats the first thing you ask clients when you meet them? A: Getting to know a client and establishing a common design language is the most important foundation for success. To get there requires a series of questions, some of which include: How would you identify your personal style? How do you like to live? How do you WANT to live? How many people will occupy the space? What is the function of this room for the clients? Of course, there is also the important question: Whats the budget? Q: Is there a trend that youre excited about? A: While remaining very aware of whats new and exciting in all elements of design, actual trends are something I try to encourage clients to avoid, so that every space I design remains timeless, based on quality craftsmanship with an artists integrity, and boundless, fearless freedom in exploring personal style with no rules.

6 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIts safe to say that many of us tend to shop for art in the wrong places big box stores, furniture stores, or retail chains with bin after bin of questionable canvases. But if youre going to be decorating a new home in Southwest Florida, an effort should be made to stop by one of East West Fine Arts two Naples locations: 9115 Strada Place in Mercato and 2425 Tamiami Trail North in the Bigham Galleria. The galleries represent the some of the finest Russian, American and European academically trained artists. Mother and daughter owner/operators Olga and Leeza Arkhangelskaya are Russian natives dedicated to educating customers on the history and importance of each artist and work they represent. The Bigham Galleria location primarily exhibits academically trained masters of the Russian school, while Mercato mixes paintings and sculpture from Russian, American and European artists. Both of the 2,000 square foot galleries are mini museums with the added benefit of having price tags on the displays. (Prices tend to range from $1,000 to $40,000.) Representing such powerful artists as Stanislav Plutenko, Georgy Kurasov and Slava Fokk, each gallery has a number of selections from each, in what can only be described as a feast for the eyes. Stopping in for a quick peek gets visitors an impromptu education from Olga or Leeza about the artists and the pieces hanging before them. If you love art, this is the place to come. Kurasov is neo constructivism, says Leeza, while standing in front of the artists work. The artist is credited with inventing the form. He creates a softness of the human form with these precise angles Its very pleasing to the eye. And to be credited with creating a movement is almost unheard of. Its a talking point sure to keep guests impressed if you place one over your couch. And while the Kurasov pieces truly are dynamic and demand attention, works by Plutenko, which can run up to $40,000, will have you contemplating the artists meaning for a lifetime. Magical, surreal, impactful and mesmerizing, each work generates more thought and inquisition than a semester of college the price suggests. And we can work with people and help them coordinate with their dcor, says Leeza. You will have a real work of art in your home. Its not a print from Ikea. And that work will feed your soul. Not to mention make your couch look great.

8 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen it comes to architecture, its tough to be hotter than Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture & Planning. Though far from single-handedly, he is changing the face of Naples. In fact, hes so popular right now he recently opened a restaurant themed on his architectural style. With a thoroughly modern reinvention of the Florida cottage, he has tapped into a new consciousness of design for Southwest Florida. And houses such as this stunning singlefamily just four blocks from the beach and four blocks from the shops and restaurants of 5th Avenue South in Old Naples are a major reason why. Coming in at 3,347 square foot under-air (3,913 under roof), this new home is a two-story monument to a life well lived. In fact, its easy to see why Encore Development brought together MHK Architecture, T. Jerulle Construction, and ALD Landscape Architecture to create this four bedroom (plus loft), three fulland one half-bath beauty. Its the very definition of the ideal Naples lifestyle. Furnished by Clive Daniel Home, the residence was designed with entertaining in mind.

FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 2017 LUXE LIVING 9friends alike can move freely from the high-end gourmet kitchen featuring Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances to the elegant dining area to the chic living room without ever being far from the action. Interior designers Vrinda Albrecht and Susan Trivison knew the developer wanted a fresh coastal contemporary feel that would be appealing to a variety of buyers, so they worked closely off of Kraghs details. We selected furnishings that would complement the architectural features throughout the home, such as the steppedgeometric tray ceilings, the deep ebony wood flooring, and the contrasted black and white kitchen, says Ms. Albrecht. We used gray, black, and navy to add contrast to the overall white environment. (Then) we selected a classic track arm sofa with a beautiful textured Greek-key patterned fabric and oversized lounge chairs with a sleek gray-blue velvet covering. We used a lot of texture over pattern to keep the look updated and fresh. Frankly, its a study in upscale livability. The pair captured the essence of the coastal atmosphere by using the dark navy and highlighting with gray accents to keep it in line with current trends but also present a classic timeless appeal. Im totally bias, but I love this house, says Realtor Dante DiSabato of William Raveis Real Estate, who was part of the team from Encore that developed the property. Its designed to be comfortable, yet stylish, and offers an amazing level of ease of use. Its just so well thought out. This is a home where you can turn the key and immediately be experiencing all the best parts of Naples. The main living area opens onto an outdoor living area with western exposure, a custom pool and spa featuring rich ipe decking, an outdoor kitchen with dining area, and enough lounge area for you to perfect your tan. Also off the pool area is the large master suite with movie star good looks and an expansive en suite that features breathtaking tile work and a full body jet shower system. Conveniently, a spacious laundry room is nearby. And if youre looking for a bit a peace and quiet away from all the action, all you have to do is walk up the homes dramatic custom staircase located in the homes tower (or take the elevator) to find yourself in a loft perfectly perched to allow for viewing of both the pool area and side yard. We especially enjoy the upstairs loft which features a large white sectional and a cluster of uniquely shaped concrete tables, says Trivison. The bright white fabric is 100% live-able as it is a Sunbrella material that can be easily cleaned with warm soapy water or a little diluted bleach for lifes messier moments. It is a comfortable and inviting space that is well balanced with a large iron chandelier that mimics the beamed ceiling. The second floor is also home to three more bedrooms, one of which functions as a second master suite, meaning guests can enjoy the party long into the night and know theyll have a room for the night. You know, maybe MHK should get into the hotel business, too. The home, which also features a full two-car garage, is available fully furnished for $4.175 million.

Proven. Respected.RANDALL PERRY / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen youre buying a condo in a town thats new to you, it makes sense to want to put your own stamp on it. After all, when youre busy spending the day hitting the links, beaches and restaurants, you want to come home to a place that makes you feel comfortable. This particular beauty was purchased fully furnished and professionally designed, but not to the new owners personal style. At time of purchase, the 2,950 square foot, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath space could have been labeled fussy with a hint of delicate. But the owners were looking for something a bit more livable, so they called Kira Krmms Koastal Design Group. Our clients purchased their condo a few months before season and wanted it transformed before their arrival in January, says Ms. Krmm. This was their first purchase in Naples and intended it to be a short term investment property to see how they liked the area as a seasonal vacation From complicated to sublimeA Tiburon penthouse condo simplified for sophisticated eleganceThe condos dining area went from tolerable to terrific with sleek chairs tailored in subtle blue fabric with chrome nail heads which coordinate with the tables polished steel base.MAKEOVER m Th fr sl bl he th Before Step Up In at AGOSTINOS Call Today! 239.594.303711985 Tamiami Trail North Naples, FLOPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 10-5, SUNDAY 11-4Visit our new website at Also visit: Visit Our ShowroomFINE FURNITURE.

spot to enjoy with friends and family. (Originally) it was purchased new and had been professionally decorated in an elaborate traditional style that did not reflect their taste and lifestyle. They wanted interior design elements that would be more suited to their new vacation condominium in coastal destination such as Naples. Part of the challenge was that the husband preferred contemporary styling, while the wife leaned towards classic elements. With a blend of bone, taupe, subtle blues, and luscious textures, Ms. Krmm created a home that coexists nicely with the surrounding golf course views. The end result is more cohesive and subdued, and feels perfectly suited to seasonal visits. Gone is the neuvo European line green accents that originally made up the master suite replaced by a relaxing space that oozes comfort. The media room/study went from a frenzied collection of patterns to an elegant room that wont induce a panic attack. Even more impressive was the finished results were achieved in such a short timeframe. Our plan was to update the unit with all new customized furnishings, fixtures, dcor and wall finishes, while working around the existing cabinetry, flooring, and architectural details, adds Ms. Krmm. Neutral backgrounds and fabrics on key furnishings allows for color to be incorporated through accessories such as accent pillows and artwork. They were thrilled with the results both luxurious and livable, with a timeless interior that now reflects both the husband and wifes unique styles fresh, polished, elegant, a fusion of traditional elements with modern nuances. The perfect vibe for an upscale vacation property. And one that feels like home for its owners. Koastal Design Group Kira Krmm & Co. 707 12th Ave. S. 992-5586; FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 2017 LUXE LIVING 11 Kira Krmm took the homes den from chaotic to quiet thanks to warm grey upholstery on the sofa, a Neptune zinc leather coffee table, and smoke grey drapes (top). Warm hues and clean lines define the newly inviting living room anchored by a cozy seating area (below). Meanwhile, the master bedroom got toned down with a tufted bed in light neutral fabric topped with light seafoam bedding, a lounge chair in driftwood grey, and a library table doing desk duty in a weathered mineral finish.MAKEOVER pi th ri ti r a BeforeBeforeBefore Duette Honeycomb Shades Pirouette window shadings Skyline Gliding Window Panels FORT MYERS15881 S Tamiami Trl Ste 2 M-F: 9:00am 5:00pm Sat: By Appointment Only 239-415-7312 NAPLES7740 Preserve Ln Ste 11 M-F: 9:00am 5:00pm Sat: By Appointment Only 239-631-2528At Home Blinds & Decor,
