This includes one nonprofit thats been behind a dizzying amount of recovery and relief efforts since the Category 4 storm made landfall on Marco Island in midSeptember. The United Way of Collier County was supposed to have its annual campaign kickoff breakfast at the end of September. Irma derailed those plans, however, and the launch was rescheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 31. In the weeks in between, the direction of the kickoff has shifted. Were going to theme it around a celebration of the hurricane response, tell stories about the exceptional work of our partners, the school system and others, according to Elizabeth Morano, senior vice president of the agency.

MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES COMMENTARYLetters to my fatherSometimes, you have to get a baseball player, even a dead one, to help you communicate with the dead. And the living.Dear Dad, I remain as imperfect all these years later as Ted Williams, who struck out at least six out of every 10 times he went to bat, as you probably remember. A real lousy baseball player. Maybe that kind of failure just comes with the last name Williams. Anyway, Daddy, Im more of a failure than I want to admit, but I can still swing the bat. How about you? Dear Dad, I remain as capable in the game of life as Ted Williams in the game of baseball. I just wanted you to know: Im really a hot-shot. Since you died almost 19 years ago, Ive been bat ting over .400, like Ted did when he batted .406 in 1941 after hitting six out of eight times at bat in the final two games of the season, that double-header on Sept. 28 against the Philadelphia Athletics. That was before the war, as you remember. Did you listen to that game on the radio? And of course the last time Ted ever went to bat, in 1960 (remember that?), he hit a home run, finishing with a lifetime batting average of .344, I think. What do you think? Dear Dad, Well, Daddy, in 2001, last day of March, I batted 1,000, unlike Ted Williams ever did or even got close to, as hard as that may be for you to believe. That brought my average way up. I married this woman named Amy Bennett, is how that happened. That would lift any batters average, like hitting 10 out of 10 or 100 out of 100 or 1,000 out of 1,000 at the plate. Also now, I have the three coolest sons in the world, as much alike as not peas in a pod the Milky Way Galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy and Orions belt. Dear Dad, Im still taking care of mom like I told you I would, and shes taking care of me, my wife, and all three of my remarkable sons, one way or another. I feel like Ted Williams with a blindfold, swinging away and getting lucky, connecting with a few pitches here and there and hitting them to deep center field way out beyond the wall. Way out over the bleachers. Way out well, Daddy, beyond Mars and Jupiter and Saturn. Must be those weird genes you passed us, some kind of Gaelic jambalaya, if I can confuse cultural and culinary references. Those people you came from Dad they were all screwed up, in case youd forgotten. Dont you think you should have picked somebody else? Like Ted Williams? He has our name, after all, why not our genes? Dear Dad, Joes Delicatessen closed. Jakes is gone. John Castellano is dead. Carmen Basilio died in 2012 you remember Carmen, born in 1927 in New York State, like you? The onion farmer, they called him? Hell, not only could he beat you in the ring but he outlived you, dammit, Daddy. Not that you werent the toughest, biggest person Ive ever known. Meanwhile, Dad, there are still bears and elk at the ranch in Colorado, but the high-range cows have mostly gone now. I remember that last time I saw you come over the hill a half-mile away near days end, a single solitary figure with a rifle up against the sky, coming. Always coming. Wish youd come over that hill again, Dad. Ill bet Ted Williams could do it. Dear Dad, This thing about your generation, how its the greatest I know you wouldnt have seen it that way. You always looked for greatest-ness in individuals, like Ted Williams. There were some real knuckleheads in your generation along with all the greats, thats for sure. Or theres a guy now, Daddy, Aaron Judge, playing for the Yankees, and hes pretty good some say as good as Ted Williams. But he only hit .284 this season, with a few homers on the side 52, I think. Still, it aint over, Dad, til its over. By the way, Berra died two years ago, and every spring up until then he showed up in Florida during spring training to watch the Yanks. Remember Florida, Dad, that place you never wanted to come, and didnt? I still insist you missed out. Dear Dad, Ted Williams played left field he threw right but he also batted left and I think thats significant. You were sort of a lefty too, Dad, and Im afraid I fit that mold. Even though Im right handed, like you. I remember when you wrote those letters to the editor of a big paper, the Kansas City Star, about how trickle-down, the Reagan tax policy, was horsecrap the rich would get richer and the working class would get screwed, you predicted. That was when ol Ronnie lowered taxes for the wealthy. And his wife, Nancy, was trying to find Ted Williams home run ball somewhere out beyond Jupiter. Remember? And those angry people called us up at night and shouted at you on the phone, and you thought it was funny? Well, Daddy, you turned out to be right. But some Republican named Trump is doing it again. Or many Republicans. Theyre going to cut taxes for the rich. Im sorry we havent gotten this figured out yet. On the other hand, if you dont like it, you can come back and do something about it. Ill bet Ted Williams could. Can you? Love, Roger h b I roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

If there is one phrase that best characterizes the stunning disarray at hand, it is, I have never insert any of the following words seen, heard, and/ or witnessed anything like this in my life and/or American history. The country is harshly divided on the judgment of whether that is a good thing or bad thing. I certainly have my own opinion on the matter. But whatever your take, we can probably all agree, for better or for worse, it is a true statement, whatever the superlatives. I once wrote in a previous column about Bizarro World, a fictional, cubeshaped planet imagined as a sci-fi comic book series by Marvel Comics. The tales had a mind-bending twist. Everything on Bizarro World was the exact opposite of life on Earth. In popular nomenclature, Bizarro World describes a situation or setting which is weirdly inverted or opposite to expectations. For example, on Bizarro World, abnormal was normal, false was true, fiction was fact, now was never, enemies were friends, hate was love and injustice was justice. The rigor of the nuttiness was by design. The planets Bizarro-in-chief enforced this zaniness with a global edict and its citizens dutifully conformed. Marvel anticipated endless possibilities for entertaining us with this comic inversion of reality on Earth as we know it. Bizarro World became an instant favorite among comic book fans. Its popularity ensured the term bizarro entered the urban lexicon. Thus, an individual deemed a bizarro is an erratic, unpredictable, socially awkward person whose behaviors trigger ill-at-ease among those witness to his or her behaviors. Uncertainty is the only thing one can expect with certainty from a bizarro. They are people best avoided in social circumstances because you know whatever is generated by their presence will not be good. This characteristic is magnified in a bizarro who holds power over others. The stakes are far higher, too. Remember, in Bizarro World, leadership is the failure to lead. This would be funny if the joke werent on us. Marvel Comics imagined Bizarro World as a fantasy. But its comparison as a fantasy to the reality that is Trump World is unavoidable. In Trump World, rather than confidence and trust, our bizarro-style leader engenders fear and mistrust. The unsettling and provocative nature of his personality creates a magnetic field that entraps us all in its gravity. Trumpism is the political edict to which conformity is demanded. We are reminded of this 24/7 by cable news and social media. We cant turn our eyes away, nor resist the spectacle, avoid its attitudes or behaviors, or escape its consequences. And each day brings a new crisis or disturbing revelation. The continuous onslaught confronts the experience and fact of 200 years of historical precedence the norm for normalcy. In no time at all, heredity becomes political destiny. The bizarro gene is being passed down the chain of command, through the right wing of the Republican Party, from Trump to Trumpists to Trumpism. The political mutation is found at the highest levels of government. It is Marvel Comics Bizarro World made manifest in American democracy. The Department of Education is working to annihilate public schools. The Secretary for Environmental Protection is an anti-environment. The U.S. attorney general is erasing civil rights protections and undoing decades of racial progress. The secretary of state is dismantling the international infrastructure and expertise required to practice diplomacy. The secretary of labor disparages labor and disdains fair employment. The ultimate irony: We came to this strange place because to win an election in Bizarro World, you must lose it. And thats pretty much what Trump did, by 3 million votes. Its been a wild ride since. The balance of the year does not look any more promising. Still, it is fall and time for some solace in American holiday traditions. Halloween is upon us. Then, lo and behold, just when the metaphor seemed to have run its course, it came to my attention that Marvels Bizarro World celebrated Halloween, too. Maybe it will give a hint about how all this turns out, I thought. In 2009, there was a comic book revival of Bizarro World titled Halloween Special. In the first tale, Bizarro Worlds head honcho, (named, appropriately enough, Bizarro) is reading a comic book to an audience of Bizarro World citizens. They are held captive in their seats, bound and gagged. And, in honor of the holiday, dressed in Halloween costumes. Updated for todays consumption, instead of a TED self-improvement session, led by some renowned thinker or patriotic titan, an autocrat is force-feeding Twitter rants to a diverse audience of Americans who have no choice but to observe and endure. Its Halloween in Trump World. And the era of trick or tweet. Leslie Lillys professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

Johnny Carson > Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel deserves credit for frankness, if nothing else. In a recent interview, the ABC late-night host said he doesnt care about losing Republican viewers.Were a long way from Johnny Carson, whose Tonight Show was a national institution that enjoyed a broad audience and was conducted like one. Carson steered clear of politics and kept his views to himself because it would hurt me as an entertainer, which is what I am. Kimmel may be an entertainer, but has no such inhibitions. He utter ed what could be the epigraph for our times, saying of viewers who strongly disagree with his political views, I probably wont want to have a conversation with them anyway. From Carson to Kimmel is the story of the fracturing of media environment that has made niche audiences the coin of the realm. Add an inflamed anti-Trump resistance cheered on by the elite media, and Kimmel kissing off Republicans is probably a good career move. Stephen Colbert of CBS blazed this particular trail with increasingly overthe-top denunciations of President Donald Trump that vaulted him to the top of the late-night ratings. Jimmy Fallon, the heir to Carsons Tonight Show via Jay Leno, has pointedly declined to make his show The New York Times editorial page with a few jokes attached, and has seen a ratings decline. It is important to note that these shows are competing for numbers that once would have been considered catastrophic. Carson could pull in 9 million viewers when one of his shows popped; he averaged 19 million viewers a night his final week on air in 1992. Colbert is winning the late-night race with 3 million viewers. This means that all it takes to become a giant of late night is winning over a Rachel Maddow-like audience, exactly Colberts strategy. If this trend is inevitable, its not a good thing. It removes yet another neutral zone, free of social and political contention, from American life. It means that the quality of the comedy on these shows probably goes down (agitprop isnt funny), while the quality of the political commentary is inevitably poor; Jimmy Kimmels wholly ill-informed gun monologue subtracted from the nations understanding of the issue, as youd expect of a comedian who is only paying enough attention to absorb the flimsiest clichs of the gun debate. As Kimmels dismissive comments show, its a short step from believing that you dont need the patronage of the other side to feeling contempt for it. Colbert isnt trying to convince anyone; hes scorning and mocking Trump for the benefit of people who already hate him. It would have been hard to believe that the old, maligned CNN debate program Crossfire would appear in retrospect to represent a golden age of a relative commitment to civil, informed political debate, but here we are. Johnny Carson once said: I would love to have taken on Billy Graham. But Im on TV five nights a week; I have nothing to gain by it and everything to lose. Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, competing for the crown in a much diminished late-night kingdom, beg to differ, and unfortunately, theyre right.

CUSTOM CLOSETSfrom $395 Schools superintendent reflects on Irmas impact Editors note: Collier County Public Schools Superintendent Kamela Patton was invited to testify before the Florida Senate Appropriations Committee and the Florida Senate Education Appropriations Subcommittee about the impact Hurricane Irma had on CCPS schools, students and the overall community. Here is a letter she shared with the community on Oct. 24, the day before she addressed the senate committee and subcommittee: Dear Community Members, It has been six weeks since Hurricane Irma ravaged our community and the storms effects are still impacting our schools today The loss and damage sometimes seems overwhelming. A second-grade teacher in Everglades City was heartbroken to learn that one of her students would be leaving the school in a few days. His familys home was destroyed and his parents could not find post-storm employment or housing. As a result, the family made the choice to relocate to California. We still have many students and families without homes, in fact, 383 students have registered as homeless with Collier County Public Schools since Irma, and the number continues to grow each day. The effects of this storm will challenge parts of our community for a while. We have heard that Immokalee families may go another eight to 10 weeks without employment due to the delay in the planting cycle. Part of moving forward in our school community is responding to the fact that many families cannot. Even though some news is grim and we have families and staff whose lives are forever changed, we continue working diligently and cooperatively with the community to help families. We opened a warehouse at iTECH to store supplies for Immokalee families. The requests to individual schools were extensive, and we needed a central processing area to relieve the task our schools from that responsibility. The staff at Everglades City School is still working to cook for the community and is storing home essentials and food supplies all over campus. Naples schools are helping Immokalee schools by producing snack packs for students to take home to eat over the weekend. For example, Seagate Elementary staff and students produced 1,100 snack packs for students at Pinecrest. Even Pinecrest students are making snack packs for their classmates. Administrators from Avalon Elementary and other schools went doorto-door to visit families that were devastated by the storm. Our CCPS Facilities Department did an amazing and rapid job getting our schools cleaned, repaired and opened in order to provide a sense of normalcy for our families. We are so #CCPSProud of all the teachers, administrators and community members who continue to work to support students in both the classroom and at home. As you may have seen, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited our community, touring Everglades City School and Pinecrest Elementary to see the recovery first hand and commenting, ... the administrators and the leadership in these schools, they are getting things done and acting immediately and with urgency. The last thing we want to have happen is to have anything bureaucratic get in the way of what they have been able to accomplish ... Its heartbreaking to see the devastation and the damage, but it is also encouraging to see how these communities have rallied around one another. Collier County families have certainly rallied to help each other. The support locally and from across the country has been phenomenal. We are thankful for all of your efforts.

BEHIND THE WHEELThe Lexus RX is thinking about youThe Lexus RX crossover is about to celebrate two decades of blazing a new trail. When the it first showed up in 1998 as a 1999 model, we didnt exactly know how to define it. The design was beefier than a station wagon and sportier than an SUV. It was one of the first vehicles of its kind and not all of us even knew the term crossover yet. We would come to discover that the RX was the luxury epicenter of what would become the fastest growing segment of the next couple of decades. That has made it an international symbol for crossovers, as well as the consistent best-selling vehicle in the Lexus lineup. But rarely is the most popular student solely defined by the first one to arrive at school. So, what gives the RX staying power? It starts with the design. Now in its fourth generation, the RX carries the most aggressive design elements that Lexus is promoting. The company is consciously trying to look as sporty as possible, and that includes the hourglass grille and sharp-edge styling. The c-pillar is even partially done in black to give the floating roof appearance thats popular today.But even with a very popular and modern look, the RX has been more about evolution than revolution. Big bumpers, minimal chrome and the long rake of the rear glass are pieces from previous generations that have always had appeal. While the current RX doesnt look like the one from the winter of 1998, its lineage is secure. Another piece that crosses generations is a quiet interior. Lexus premium reputation is built on its ability to isolate the cabin from the outside world. Sometimes that gets criticism in a sports car, but its exactly the kind of engineering that keeps the RX on top. After all, crossovers are popular because they ride a bit higher to give separation from the rest of traffic. The feeling of luxury is more than just the silence. Material qualities are exceptional the plastics are as smooth and substantial as the metal elements and theres leather in all the right places. Its a layout that feels thoughtful, and the features do, too. For example, there are automatic high beams for the headlights, radar-guided cruise control and a pre-collision warranting system. Its almost like the RX has a mother-like level of concern for everyones safety What may miss the mark for some people is the infotainment system. Most of us are accustomed to a touchscreen running the electronic wizardry of everything from the stereo to GPS navigation (when equipped). Lexus utilizes a fingertip control module thats very much like a mousepad. The real advantage is that the large 12.3-inch display screen can be mounted closer to eye level, and it allows for more room in the dash to mount key components. This setup is intuitive and drivers will likely find it second-nature after a few weeks of ownership. Still, its almost certain to feel awkward during the first test drive. Our car was the front-wheel drive RX 350, which comes with a 3.5-liter V6. The motor has its roots in longhaul cars like the Toyota Camry. It has been refined for Lexus duty, so that not even valve noise intrudes on the cabin. In this application, its producing 295 horsepower. Its no sports car, but thats only a few ponies short of a comparable Mercedes GLE a vehicle carrying the weight of about two more people. The real heart of RXs appeal is in the way it can make commutes and long journeys effortless. Light steering and just the right plush feeing in the ride means the trip is never taxing on the driver. There are more power options with the hybrid model and theres allwheel drive available for those who need it, but the RX will always be a soothing ride more than an adventurers machine. Over the last 20 years, Lexus has consistently bet that there is appeal in providing a vehicle that feels like someone thoughtfully engineered it.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYpage called Shoot at Hurricane Irma lets show Irma that we shoot first. For fun, they said. And 54,000 people expressed an interest in opening fire on the hurricane, according to the Pasco County Sheriffs Office, whose officials used social media and television to strongly discourage such irrational action, hoping to create community-wide calm and a bullet-free living environment. Although people began worrying and stressing 10 days before the storm arrived and in spite of the fact Irma itself took place about six weeks ago its still not over, said Stacey Chadwick Brown, a longtime licensed mental health counselor in Lee County. There are still reminders everywhere, she said. Theyre still handing out water bottles and picking up debris. Families continue to live in motels with help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Contractors in roofing, electrical work, drywall, plumbing and others continue to be overworked. But Ms. Brown is referring to a deeper, perhaps more difficult part of the experience: Im talking about the emotional part of it thats not over, she explained. This week, Florida Weekly pauses to reflect on a stressful year for most if not everybody in the country and the state. Here, we consider what individuals might do to control stress and anxiety, rather than being controlled by it. And not just Irma-induced stress, but the elevated tension from a seeming storm of other events delivered with nearly relentless daily effect through news and social media in the last year or so. Regardless of how stable people are, how comfortable their lives are, they cant escape it, said Ms. Brown, citing a long list of stress-inducers involving high winds, flooding, fire, gunfire, sexual harassment, the chest-thumping of racists and faux-Nazis and unnerving tweets from people in power. With the rise of social media it makes these global situations feel local and our local situations feel global, so theres more of a collective impact, said Nancy Dauphinais, also a licensed mental health counselor and chief operating officer of the David Lawrence Center in Naples. Not just news reports, but videos from cell phone cameras capturing traumatic images without being filtered or vetted, she said. Trouble seems omni-present. So it leads to a heightened state of alert. We face stressful chemicals produced by the body on a daily basis.Self-care is not selfishTo start with, Americans lived through the tense presidential election cycle of 2016 with the loser earning 3 million more votes than the winner of the White House; then they were treated to a barrage of controversial and unsettling Donald Trump tweets, some even threatening nuclear war with enemies. From their living rooms or the palms of their hands or even on site they watched an earthquake in Mexico, hurricanes in Houston and Puerto Rico and Florida, and murderous wildfires in California. They stared in surprise at a march and counter-pr otest against white supremacists and Nazi flag-wavers that led to a killing in Charlottesville, Va., followed by a national debate on race. They witnessed almost in live time the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, in Las Vegas. Then came sexual harassment allegations aimed at Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and the resulting me too explosion of testimonials by women in many walks of life who have suffered similar victimization. And those were only some of the stressors of the last 18 months. What does one do in the face of all that trouble? The answer, experts suggest, is to understand the stress and its effect, first. And then to control what you can control. Your breathing, to start with. Your mindfulness, a term that loosely means the capacity to fully engage the present moment of your life to live in the now, as more than one professional counselor puts it. Thats easier said than done, but good personal habits create an effective defense a chance to live more comfortably just in the moment, in the now. One of the realities of the 24-hour news cycle is we get much more direct exposure to anxiety-producing experiences from around globe. Maybe they dont affect us or maybe they do directly, but we go naturally to the question, How am I affected? said Dr. Gerard Lawon, president of the nonprofit American Counseling Association based in Alexandria, Va. An expert in the traumas faced by people following cataclysms storms or mass shootings, for example Dr. Lawson flew into Southwest Florida and worked with the Red Cross to help people in and around Immokalee, in Collier County, in the days after Irma. Before that, hed been in Houston. What we encourage is to begin with self-care even when nothing has gone awry, he said. Develop the habits of taking care of yourself. Get enough sleep, proper exercise, eat on a regular schedule and eat nutritious foods. In Ms. Browns words, Self-care is not selfish. When the attendant in the airplane tells you to put your oxygen mask on first before trying to help anybody else, theres a reason. If you dont take care of yourself first, youll just fall over and get in the way later. By developing good habits before the trouble, when your body reacts naturally to sudden high stress by flooding your system with anxious energy, youll be better equipped to handle it, the experts say. The sustained release of cortisol and endorphins in your body from before, during and after a storm like Irma or an event like happened in Las Vegas will mean your sleep is disturbed, your digestion can be off, and from start to finish it affects you on a cellular level, said Ms. Brown. Thats why Barack Obama went gray so fast. So if people are already dealing with other things, too maybe divorce or their kids are troubled or theyre under financial stress then they come into all this (societal) stress starting a year or two back with an already heightened sense of personal stress, it gets really tough.Getting some perspectiveTense times have happened before, of course, but without the technologies of instant communication we now embrace. And in case youre leaning toward the notion that somehow all of us 2017-ers have been chosen as the target of bad luck and trouble, a little perspective might help. Alvin Felzenberg, presidential historian, public official and author most recently of A Man and his Presidents the Political Odyssey of William F. Buckley, Jr., divides his time between Washington, D.C. and Palm Beach. A visiting lecturer at the University of Pennsylv anias Annenberg School for Public Communication, he was principal spokesman for the 9/11 Commission, and is now also director of communications for the Joint Economic Committee of Congress. An aging baby boomer, Professor Felzenberg recalls some of the stresses of his youth as particularly sharp-edged. I do find these times stressful, he said. But in my college days we worried about the draft, the war in Vietnam, civil rights and in my freshman year there were two major assassinations and major disturbances in cities that in many ways were a lot worse than what happened in Charlottesville. Following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4 of that year, rioting, looting, protesting and arson broke out in more than 100 American cities over the next two days in Chicago, for example, 11 people were killed, 500 were injured and 2,150 arrested, with hundreds of buildings damaged or destroyed. In June, Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. Professor Felzenberg, 18, was a freshman at Rutgers University who went on to earn a Ph.D. in history from Princeton University and to step into a society for which change, and therefore stress, seems to be the lifeblood. So if youre my age, youve been through this before, he noted. But theres no question now that, even with the weather, something is atypical. There are floods, hurricanes, issues in California, Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas, Alabama and weve had August in New York for the longest time. Autumn in New York, he added in a nod to the 2000 film with Richard Gere and Winona Ryder, was unfolding outside the windows of a New York airport where he sat waiting to fly home in the seeming CRAZYFrom page 1 One of the realities of the 24-hour news cycle is we get much more direct exposure to anxiety-producing experiences from around globe.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 NEWS A11first day of fall, last week.The American conversationBut there are other things to worry about this year besides climate change or the once upon a time, Professor Felzenberg suggested. In the 2016 elections, It wasnt just the tenor (of debates about issues) and the surprising result and some of the atypical reactions, it was the shock of the election itself. Many people did not expect that result. So it causes stress. The tenor of political discourse, as he described it often angry, characterized by an abeyance of conversation but an abundance of insult represents a distinct departure from traditional American conversation about issues of the kind once practiced by William F. Buckley Jr., the famous conservative pundit and host of an issues-focused television show, Firing Line. In his private life, Mr. Buckleys best friends were liberals, for the most part, Professor Felzenberg said. And on his show, he would often engage them in legendary and sometimes fierce debates, presenting the conservative side with power and eloquence. Buckley elevated the public discourse between Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives alike it was arguably the highest moment in the history of American television debate or discourse. Thats changed, and with it the level of frustration and stress, he surmised. The political conversation is extremely guttural and vulgar now and I think stressful. I would even say its affecting the tenor of commercials and many things in popular culture. The entire atmosphere has been dragged down. It shows, even on the street, some say. Ms. Brown recalls her neighborhood emptying out all of a sudden, as Irma came storming in. Stuart (her husband) and I were outside with our drills, covering windows, and three police cars and a fire truck came rolling by with bullhorns saying, GET OUT NOW! They went in and out of all of the neighborhoods near the river. Thats the kind of stuff that leads to panic. So after that, all the people were freaked out, trying to drive up the only interstate highway we have to get out of here, she said. Some people were releasing dogs on the side of the highway, some were fighting in gas lines, there were people camping on the side of the road talk about a fight or flight response. Thats a serious drop of cortisol, right there. One of the steroid hormones used by the body to regulate many functions, under stressful conditions, cortisol provides the body with glucose by tapping into protein stores via gluconeogenesis in the liver. This energy can help an individual fight or flee a stressor. However, elevated cortisol over the long term consistently produces glucose, leading to increased blood sugar levels, according to an on-line source, todaysdietician. com. So everybodys eating carbs and crappy food or drinking beer theyre hot, tired, mad at the family because everybody is exhausted, Ms. Brown said. Those are the people who stayed (for the storm). The people who left were just as petrified and worried as the people who stayed, because people sitting in Atlanta watching all this felt paralyzed, and didnt know what they were coming back to. It was almost as if Shakespeare had appeared to recall that humans have always suffered ambivalence and doubt in moments of high stress, suggested Professor Felzenberg. To be or not to be, that is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer/ The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,/ Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,/ And by opposing end them? the poet wrote in his famous play, Hamlet.The answer is actionFor the experts or the merely thoughtful and reflective, the answer to that question may be to take some action to control what you can control, and to avoid worrying too much about what you cant control. Stacey Chadwick Brown, licensed mental health counselor:Give yourself a little break, advised Ms. Brown. Have some compassion and empathy for what youre been through. We are microcosms of the macrocosm. The first line of defense is, you have to take care of yourself. So everybody just calm the hell down. Concentrate on your breath. Just breathe, because breath is healing. Intentional breathing is important: just sitting for a couple minutes and intentionally breathing in and out, trying to get yourself regulated. If you can do that, even just concentrating on the temperature of the air coming in and out of your nostrils, then you will calm your central nervous system. Its connected to brain biology. Im a yoga person, so you collect your energy and bring it back into your mind and heart. These are the only things we can control: our breath and mind, our thoughts and actions. Thats it. Nancy Dauphinais, COO David Lawrence Center:One of my strategies and one Id recommend, is to look for resilience, to focus on areas or people of strength. Another strategy is mindfulness. When were bombarded its important to be present in the present moment, to stay in the now, to use meditation. Your world needs to be mindful and reflective, to show counter balance to those stress responses being activated. I practice meditation every day using the headspace app. And I think its important to avoid isolation and to be connected with people in the flesh with support people. Family, friends, people at church who share your faith real people. I also connect with my horse. Thats another thing we do at David Lawrence, partnering with the Naples Therapeutic Riding Center. Working with horses can be deeply relaxing. So between meditation and faith and community and for me my horse I can stay engaged. And finally, its important to get help. Sometimes our stress levels outpace our stress control techniques. Its OK to go see a professional. Someone who can help you set goals around managing stress, help you work at the way youre thinking about things. Dr. Gerard Lawson, president American Counseling Association:I go to the gym. I dont enjoy it, but I like how I feel after. I love going out in the kayak, sitting disconnected from the phone. You can get recentered and regrounded. We have some of sources in controlling or moderating anxiety. One challenge is social media, with no editorial filters, no editorial judgment, nothing that says, is it a good idea to post this? Just raw exposure. So be careful about when you check in. If something troubling is going on with the world, maybe you dont tune in, immediately. Set some boundaries that work for you. Log out, dont just close Facebook or Twitter, so they dont pop up every time you pick up the phone. And we encourage people to think: What are healthy activities I can do that disconnect me from that ongoing drip, or exposure? Pick what you find renewing. Professor Alvin Felzenberg, presidential historian, political pundit and public official:Exercise helps not necessarily becoming a gym rat unless you want to. Walking. Engaging in any kind of activity. It could be yoga, exercising in a room or jogging and running on the road you create time to get your mind off of events. The second thing would be to seek out the company of loved ones, friends, family, in particular children they are much more mature than adults. And animals. I like dogs, but some people love horses. These are great (therapists), horses and dogs. Great friends of humankind. Weve been flocking together since Biblical times. And finally, reading is an immense and valuable escape. I always have a book with me somewhere. Stay away from TV and (control your use of) social media. It wasnt just the tenor (of debates about issues) and the surprising result and some of the atypical reactions, it was the shock of the election itself. Many people did not expect that result. So it causes stress. Professor Alvin Felzenberg, presidential historian, political pundit and public officialLAWSON DAUPHINAIS BROWN FELZENBERG ...

Consider a FEMA appeal if at first you are deniedApplicants for FEMA disaster assistance should not consider the initial determination letter from the agency ruling them ineligible for disaster assistance as the final word. FEMA offers these tips to keep in mind if you receive such a letter: Read the letter carefully. It could explain any problems that might be corrected. You might need to provide additional information or documents. If a mistake has been made, let FEMA know right away by calling 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-4627585) or visiting a Disaster Recovery Center. Everyone has the right to appeal any FEMA decision. Appeals can relate to eligibility, the amount or type of help provided, a late application, a request to return money or continuing help. If you were determined ineligible due to insurance coverage but had under-insured or uninsured losses you can appeal the decision by submitting your insurance settlement paperwork. The appeal must be sent and postmarked within 60 days after you receive the letter. In your appeal letter, explain why you think the decision about the amount or type of assistance is not correct. You will need to include your full name, the nine-digit FEMA registration number and the four-digit disaster number. Be sure to sign the letter and include a copy of a state-issued identification card, such as a drivers license. If you cannot do that, write: I hereby declare under the penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Date the appeal letter and include the FEMA application number and the disaster number (DR-4337) and mail it to FEMA National Processing Service Center, P.O. Box 10055, Hyattsville, MD 20782-7055; or FAX it to 800-827-8112 (Attention: FEMA).

Sam Quilliam, 28, had just caught the 5-inch-long fish and went to give it a kiss when it wriggled free and lodged in his throat. I ran round the pier like a headless chicken and then passed out, Mr. Quilliam told The Guardian. When first responders arrived, he was not breathing, but friends were performing CPR. Paramedic Matt Harrison said, It was clear that we needed to get the fish out or this patient was not going to survive ... I was able to eventually dislodge the tip of the tail and very carefully, so as not to break the tail off, I tried to remove it although the fishs barbs and gills were getting stuck on the way back up. Finally, the fish came out in one piece, the paramedic said. Mr. Quilliam said his brush with death would not put him off fishing.Horsing around1) Lindsey Partridge of Ontario, Canada, booked herself at a pet-friendly Super 8 in Georgetown, Ky., for the Retired Racehorse Projects Thoroughbred Makeover on Oct. 4. At check-in, she asked the front desk clerk if the pet policy included horses, to which the clerk answered, Aw, I wouldnt mind. You could do that. So Ms. Partridge returned to her horse trailer and brought Blizz, her retired racehorse, into the hotel. She took a video and a few photos in the room, but eventually Ms. Partridge took Blizz to the Kentucky Horse Park, where the rooms are more suited to equine visitors. The Lexington HeraldLeader reported that Blizz took third place in the trail competition during the event. 2) Meanwhile, in Iowa, a pair of women stopped at a traffic light in Altoona in October looked at the car next to them and saw a horse staring back from the back seat. This is the most Iowa thing that has EVER happened to me, Hannah Waskel tweeted, along with a video of the miniature horse. We started laughing and the people driving the horse saw us and waved, she told UPI. They even rolled the window down for the horse.Wait, what?U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport made an unusual discovery in the luggage of a traveler arriving from Vietnam earlier this month: 54 illegal bird nests. The nests, which are considered a delicacy in some countries, are built out of solidified bird saliva and are used to make soup and broth, reported UPI. However, they are banned from entering the United States because they may carry infectious diseases. The nests were destroyed.What well do for loveThe Daily World in Centralia, Wash., reported that Rachel Deckert, 27, tried to turn herself in at the Lewis County Jail on an outstanding DUI warrant on Aug. 21 but was turned away because she brought along her partner literally glued to her by her pinky finger. When Ms. Deckert tried again the next day, still attached to her partner, police and firefighters were called. The two women were attached by a copper elbow pipe into which they had each inserted a pinky finger secured with some kind of epoxy, a firefighter said. They told authorities they had been that way about a week at the suggestion of a couples therapy counselor. They havent been able to feel their fingers for three days, said police detective Patty Finch. Efforts to separate the women were unsuccessful, and Ms. Deckert was released with advice to seek medical attention.Timing is everythingEva Pandora Baldursdottir, a member of the Icelandic parliament from the Pirate Party, was scheduled to take part in a debate on Oct. 12, according to UPI, but an unexpected injury lent her an especially jaunty look for the televised event: She had to conduct the debate wearing an eye patch after her toddler daughter scratched her eye. Sometimes astounding things can happen at the worst time, Ms. Baldursdottir shared on Facebook, along with a photo of her wearing the eye patch.Florida Man strikes againA husband and wife in Vero Beach made a hot bet on the Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers football game on Oct. 8: The loser would set their teams jersey on fire. When the Packers won, the husband, took his blue and silver Cowboys jersey outside and set fire to it. But, as he later told sheriffs deputies, because he was drunk, he then tried to put the jersey back on, and thats when things got heated. Family members pulled the burning jersey off the man and rushed him to the Indian River Medical Center. He suffered secondand third-degree burns to his hand, arm and back.

KICKOFFFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTO Corporate and community leaders at last years United Way of Collier County campaign kickoff breakfast at Hilton Naples. The hotel donates the meeting space and food for the kickoff every year.Pacesetter leaders regularly attend. Publix, USPS and Fifth-Third Bank are some of the bigger United Way Pacesetters in Southwest Florida, and Publix is the biggest in Collier County. The kickoff breakfast is at the Hilton Naples, which as a Pacesetter donates the room and food every year to the cause. Although tickets are still being sold (see box), Ms. Morano anticipates attendance at the breakfast will be down this year given the rescheduling of the event and companies still dealing with employees affected by the hurricane. I think our annual campaign dollars will go down our donor base is the working population of this community, she said. Maybe they dont need FEMA, but theyre using their savings to pay for trees being removed, pool cages reconstructed. The amount they have (to give to United Way) is by nature just going to be lower. But she remains optimistic about the United Ways impact and the resilience of the Collier County community. After Irma, United Way in Collier turned away from its annual campaign organizational efforts and moved toward determining where the Collier Comes Together Disaster Relief Fund should go. To date more than $1.383 million has been raised, with the Community Foundation of Collier County responsible for deploying the funds and the United Way playing an integral role in identifying areas of need and the nonprofit agencies best suited to address those needs. More than $900,000 has already been disbursed. We greatly appreciate our partnership with the United Way of Collier County. Their 211 and Volunteer Collier services were stretched during the hurricane. We applaud their commitment to our community and hope the community will support them during their campaign, said Eileen Connolly-Keesler, Community Foundation president. We will continue to be proactive in finding ways to get help where it is needed most. The need has shifted from providing food, water and materials for emergency repairs to figuring out where displaced families will live, and how those still in their homes but with big repair bills will pay their insurance deductibles. In recent weeks the United Way has worked with Catholic Charities on bridging gaps in home insurance deductibles, the Salvation Army on individual case work for insurance, FEMA on securing additional rent money, United Ways own insurance deductible program and additional partnerships with Goodwill, CareerSourceSWFL, Habitat for Humanity and others. The need for shortand long-term housing is at crisis level in Collier County right now, Ms. Morano said, adding more than 360 children in the Collier County Public School system are currently homeless, with about 50 families living out of cars. Money from the disaster relief fund has gone straight to emergency housing, specifically hotels and motels, while United Way and other local nonprofits work on longer-term solutions. United Way typically helps residents who live and work in their home county; given the unique housing market here, however, the Collier organization has expanded its reach to assist those who work in Collier but live elsewhere, like Lee County. I cant tell you how many families, teachers, EMS, that have been living here, all of the sudden their rents were up hundreds of dollars a month. You just cant afford that much of a hike, Ms. Morano said. It matters to us to help those who are the engine of this economy, who make this a great place to live and work A lot of people are going to be moving to Lee County. Its good to actually do something to help. In 2016 the United Way of Collier County invested in more than 30 local charities in addition to funding its own programs. Those investments helped 155,322 people living and/or working here. >> What: United Way of Collier County 2017-18 Campaign Kickoff >> When: 8-9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31 >> Where: The Hilton Naples >> Cost: $25 >> Reservations: www.unitedwayofcolliercounty.org/kickoff Partner agenciesThe following charitable organizations provide direct services and programs to Collier County residents and workers with funding through United Way: American Red Cross Boy Scouts of America, Southwest Florida Council Cancer Alliance of Naples Care Club of CC Catholic Charities of CC Childrens Advocacy Center of CC Childrens Home Society Collier Child Care Resources Collier County Hunger & Homeless Coalition Drug Free Collier Friendship Health Center The Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled Fun Time Early Childhood Academy Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast FL Goodwill Industries Grace Place for Children & Families Greater Marco YMCA Guadalupe Center Harry Chapin Food Bank Immokalee Child Care Center Legal Aid Service of CC Lighthouse of Collier Literacy Council of the Gulf Coast National Alliance for the Mentally Ill Naples Therapeutic Riding Center Neighborhood Health Clinic New Horizons of SWFL Parkinson Association of SWFL Physician Led Access Network of CC Redlands Christian Migrant Association NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition Shelter for Abused Women & Children United Cerebral Palsy of SWFL Guardiain ad Litem Foundation Youth Haven

Blue Zones expert says Naples area is among happiest places in the world SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDan Buettner has dedicated the last 15 years to helping people live healthier, more fulfilling lives. This work has resulted in three New York Times bestselling books: The Blue Zones, Thrive and The Blue Zones Solution. It has also inspired one of the largest community wellbeing improvement initiatives in America, The Blue Zones Project, which is established and thriving in Southwest Florida and more than 40 other communities across the country. In his newest book, The Blue Zones of Happiness, Mr. Buettner turns the spotlight from health to happiness and reveals surprising secrets of the worlds happiest places. The Naples Metropolitan Statistical Area is included in his list of happiest communities highlighted in the book. He also highlights Dr. Allen Weiss, president and CEO of NCH Healthcare system and his mission to shape the community of Southwest Florida. Dr. Weiss was attracted to Blue Zones Project because of its focus on long-term changes to the environment. Active in Southwest Florida for more than three years now, Blue Zones Project is a community-bycommunity, wellbeing improvement initiative designed to support longer, better lives through permanent changes to environment, policy and social networks. Principles are based on lifestyles in pockets of the world where people live longer with less chronic disease and higher quality of life or Blue Zones. For the last two years, the Naples MSA has been named No. 1 for well being in the country by the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index. Mr. Buettner attributes this distinction to the communitys challenging grocery stores and restaurants to offer customers healthier choices, encouraging worksites to adopt healthier practices, making suggestions to local schools to help students eat better and stay active, and enlisting churches and other organizations to help residents connect socially. The Blue Zones Project in Southwest Florida, sponsored by NCH Healthcare System, has engaged more than 15,000 individuals and 300 organizations including schools, groceries, restaurants, worksites and civic organizations, all to improve the well-being of the community. Several milestones have been achieved since the project launched in 2015: The city of Naples completed a redevelopment project adding roundabouts, sidewalks and bike lanes to improve the walkand bikeability of the area. More than 1,200 residents are in local walking groups, called Moais, and local homeowners associations host educational meetings to broaden awareness. NCH became the first health-care system in the nation to be named a Certified Blue Zones Worksite. Through the certification process, the hospital achieved several milestones, including: Nearly 60 percent of NCH employees (2,149) pledged program participation. The hospital system experienced a 54 percent decrease in health-care expenditures over six years, leading to $27 million in savings during a threeyear period. And it eliminated the sales of sugar-sweetened beverages on its campuses, leading to an estimated 500 pounds of sugar not consumed each month.Learn moreThe public is invited to learn more about the Blue Zones Project at a presentation from 9-10:30w a.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, in the Baker Tower conference room at the NCH North Naples campus.

Gabriel hounds. Black Shuck. The Baskerville Hound. Fluffy. Wait. Fluffy? Any devoted Harry Potter fan knows Fluffy, the fearsome three-headed dog who guarded the philosophers stone in the first volume of the Potter saga. Fluffy, purchased by Rubeus Hagrid from a Greek chappie, is a not-so-subtle reference to Cerberus, the canine guardian of the gate to Hades, the Greek underworld. Cerberus was also said to have been the companion of the Greek goddess Hecate, who ruled the night, the moon, magic and witchcraft. Spectral or supernatural dogs have been featured in mythology for millennia. In Egyptian lore, the dog-headed god, Anubis, weighed the hearts of the dead to determine their fate in the underworld. He was thought to protect graves and cemeteries and, later, to escort the dead from life to afterlife. The connection of dogs to death and the afterlife isnt limited to Egypt and Greece. A host of ghost dog tales arose in medieval northern Europe. Stories of spectral canines are found from Scandinavia to Germany to France, but especially throughout Great Britain. The hounds of the unearthly Wild Hunt may be the best known of these ghostly dogs. Known in Wales as the Cwn Annwn, the white hounds with red ears a coloration that symbolizes their otherworldly nature and their association with death run wrongdoers to earth as well as escort souls to the next world. Legend has it that they run only on certain nights throughout the year, including All Saints Day on November 1, Christmas and New Years Day. The vision of a phantom black dog foretells death in many parts of Great Britain. One such nocturnal canine apparition is the Barghest, a black dog with red eyes who haunts lonely byways, preying on unfortunates who come his way, and foretelling death by lying across the threshold of the doomed persons home. Another ghastly dog who haunts the British countryside is Black Shuck. The shaggy black dog with saucer-size flaming eyes roams East Anglia. Legend has it that seeing him is a precursor of bad luck or death by the end of the year. Some black dogs have a more benevolent reputation. The Gurt, or Great, Dog of Somerset is a benign canine whose role is to protect children. And Jo Ashbeth Coffey of Devon, England, recalls the time she was living in Berkshire and saw a large black dog on a bend in the road as she was riding home on her motorbike. The next day I slowed down right at that corner remembering it, and just as well. As I came around the corner there was a black horse in the middle of the road. At normal speed, it could have killed us both, she says. The spirit dogs of folklore have leaped into pop culture. One of the earliest, of course, is the hound of the Baskervilles, made famous in the eponymous Sherlock Holmes story. Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle may have been inspired by a sinister West Country phantom known as a yeth hound. More recently, a Scottish deerhound (dyed black) played Padfoot in the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Potter author J.K. Rowling may have adapted the notion of Padfoot from the legend of a black dog in the West Yorkshire area known as Padfoot, who was benevolent if offered kindness. In Prisoner of Azkaban, Padfoot is the canine form of shape-shifter Sirius Black. While black dogs have a fearsome reputation in myths and legends, those of us who live with them know the real truth thats out there: They are our sweet and soulful companions both in life and in memory.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 NEWS A27 The joys (and tears) of being a long-distance grandparentIn the same way that no one prepares you to be a parent, no one prepares you to be a grandparent either. Most of my friends who are around my age waited until they were in their 30s to start their families, so their kids are still in high school or college. I have a handful of girlfriends who are Nanas or Meemaws or Ya Yas or Glammas but for the most part, my peers are still raising their offspring. I got started earlier than most, so Im a grandparent earlier than most and not only that, Im doing this grand parenting thing long distance, which isnt easy. My grandson Bentley just turned 4 and Ive seen him just seven times since he was born. Dear airlines: Why dont ANY of you have direct flights from RSW to Dayton, Ohio? Face it, almost everyone who visits Southwest Florida is from southwest Ohio. Please make this happen. Im talking to YOU, Southwest. Modern technology is a game-changer though, as Bentley and I FaceTime at least once a week although if youve ever tried FaceTiming with a very active 4-year-old boy, you likely know that you have to be extra talented and super entertaining to keep their attention for more than two minutes (Im considering wearing a Spider Man costume for all future FaceTime sessions). So, when Im in Ohio or Bentley is in Florida, theres a part of me that wants everything to be perfect like it was for me and my Grandma Davis. Growing up, I had my moms mom, Ya Ya, who lived far away and while shed send cookies and clothes and we saw her on holidays, I didnt have the relationship with her that I had with my Grandma Davis, who lived on a farm just five minutes from our house. Grandma Davis sewed dresses and made ice cream for me, brushed my hair and read me stories. She stayed in bed with me until I fell asleep and let me play dress-up with the clothes in her attic and her costume jewelry. She taught me how snap the green beans that grew in her garden and shuck the corn from her field. She let me stay up past dark on summer nights to catch lightning bugs and trap them in a jar. She taught Sunday school at church and answered every single question I had about God (and there were plenty). She was truly the perfect grandma. Grandma Davis passed away in 2010 and I became a grandmother myself just three years later. And my mother, who was an incredible grandmother to my son, died just a few months before Bentley was born. So, Ive been winging it as best as I can. For instance, I wanted Bentley to call me Nana, but he says Nina instead, so I got used to it. When I was in Ohio last week, though, he called me Emma a lot which will do just fine. When I arrived in Dayton and we got to the house, I expected Bentley to run and jump joyfully into my outstretched arms. Instead, he laughed mischievously and ran around the yard at the speed of light shouting, You cant catch me! You cant!! And he was right. After an early flight, a layover in Atlanta and three vodka cocktails (I have a terrible fear of flying), running was not high on my list of things to do. When his father made him stop his dizzying dash, I tried to scoop Bentley up and hold him. Not only was he over that (Im a big boy now!), but as he scrambled out of my arms and onto safer ground I realized that I had wrenched my lower back to the point that I had tears in my eyes (Why you cry, Emma-Nina? asked Bentley. Im just so happy to see you honey, I said through gritted teeth). Theres a big difference between a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old when it comes to poundage. I learned a lot during this visit not only about grand-parenting skills, but about how I parented my own son. At the age of 4, Bentley is learning more about spelling, numbers and shapes using preschool educational apps on his iPad (Want to learn to read? Theres an app for that!) easier and faster than his father ever did from books. When I wondered how much screen time was too much screen time, my son wondered how his son using the iPad was any different than me putting him in front of the Nickelodeon channel back in the early s. Touch. When the three of us went to the Fall Farm Festival on Sunday and Bentley bounded toward two dogs on leashes to pet them, I instinctively grabbed him and warned, No! But my son gently said, I know youre afraid of big dogs, Mom dont project that on him. As he took Bentleys hand and walked him over to pet the dogs, he added, Why do you think I have a fear of flying? Again, touch. On my last night in Ohio, I met a few old friends a mom, a grandma and a great-grandma ranging in age from younger than me to 75. As I told them my stories they laughed and related and shared their own parenting and grandparenting mistakes and successes. At one point, our server overheard us and said, Im a grandma, too! I could never live far away from my granddaughter though. She looked at me, How can you stand it? Tears welled, and this time it had nothing to do with my aching back. Its not easy, I answered. But life isnt always perfect and neither are grandmas. All we can do is our best. Besides, Bentleys in the best hands with his dad because as an imperfect mom, I nailed it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 BUSINESS A29 I trace my roots back to 1923, when my founder agreed to produce a series of short films. He later produced Steamboat Willie, Silly Symphonies, and 1937s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, my first feature-length animated film. I debuted a whole ne w land in 1955 and had a famous club on TV. Today Im one of the worlds largest entertainment companies, owning businesses such as media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, interactive media and consumer products.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Spotting Great CompaniesAnyone investing in individual stocks should concentrate their dollars on the best companies they can find. Here are key attributes to look for: Consistent growth and strong profit margins. Revenue and earnings increasing steadily is a sign of good management. Compare gross, operating and net profit margins with those of competitors to see whos kept the most from each dollar of sales. Look for upward trends, too. Meaningful products or services. Favor companies selling things people really need or want. People wont easily give up their prescription drugs or electricity, for example. Companies such as Netflix and Apple offer items consumers crave. Also appealing are items that people buy repeatedly, such as gas, shampoo, sandwiches, socks and books, instead of items bought only sporadically, such as cars, ovens and pianos. Powerful brands. Widely known and wellrespected brands can permit a company to charge higher prices and more easily introduce new products and services. Some great brands are Coca-Cola, Disney, Amazon, Visa, Starbucks, GE, McDonalds and Google (Alphabet). Sustainable competitive advantages over peers. These can include dominant brands, economies of scale and bargaining power. Wal-Mart, for example, is so big that it can make demands of suppliers and it can prosper despite low profit margins because of high volume. Growth potential. A promising future is critical. Is the company expanding abroad? Is it launching new products or services that consumers are embracing? Is it spending significantly on research and development?Finally, consider how well you know the company and industry and how much youd enjoy keeping up with its developments. If reading about a certain company puts you to sleep, its not your best portfolio candidate. Once you find companies in which to invest, be sure only to do so when theyre attractively priced.(The Motley Fool owns stock in and has recommended some of these companies. To see many stocks weve recommended, test-drive our Motley Fool Stock Advisor newsletter for free via fool.com/ services.) Stick to What You UnderstandI am an energy consultant, and I did some business with Enron. They almost never lost a customer over price. That should have been a heads-up to me. I used to laugh with some other energy managers, wondering how they could make any money. I got the answer a couple of years later, when it turned out that the company wasnt making as much money as it said it was, and instead was cooking its books. Unfortunately, scratching my head about how it made money did not stop me from buying Enron stock a couple of times. I leave the remains of the investment on my statement, so I am constantly reminded about it. I hope to never ride a stock to zero again. S.W., onlineThe Fool Responds: You were far from the only person who fell victim to Enrons accounting fraud which was one of the largest in history and many who lost a lot were not small investors, but Wall Street professionals. A key lesson from this story is to avoid investments that you dont understand. If you dont have a good handle on exactly how a company makes its money, steer clear. Enrons financial statements were known to be very confusing, yet Wall Streeters bought and recommended the shares. The Securities and Exchange Commission and credit rating agencies also took heat for insufficient oversight and due diligence. A Comely ConglomerateWarren Buffett is widely considered to be one of the best investors in history. The value he has created for Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK-B) shareholders has become apparent over the past decades, as Berkshires collection of wholly owned subsidiaries has expanded, increasing the companys cash-generating capabilities. Berkshires market value was recently $450 billion, while the value of its stock portfolio was $148 billion at the start of the year. In other words, Berkshires nonstock holdings are worth close to $300 billion. The cash flow thrown off by these diverse businesses gives Buffett the ammo for his elephant gun, and its the quality of the businesses that has them generating so much consistent profit.Todays Berkshire is an amazingly diverse company. Its subsidiaries range across multiple industries, including railways, regulated utilities, insurance, consumer goods and industrial manufacturing. Some of its subsidiaries are GEICO, Benjamin Moore, Brooks, Duracell, Justin Brands, Sees Candies, International Dairy Queen, Fruit of the Loom and the massive BNSF railroad. This combination limits Berkshires exposure to any single industry and tempers the effect of weak consumer spending in a recession.Buffett has built an incredible business. The most amazing thing about it may not be what it has become under his leadership, but how strong it is set to remain after hes gone. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) I trace my roots back to the 1920 creation of a single classroom magazine. Today Im the worlds largest publisher and distributor of childrens books and a leading global provider of educational programs in print and electronic form. My offerings include books and e-books, book clubs, classroom magazines and printand technology-based learning programs for pre-K to grade 12. Im found in tens of thousands of schools and tens of millions of homes in 165 countries as I aim to improve literacy worldwide. Im also the U.S. print publisher of the Harry Potter books. Who am I? (Answer: Scholastic) Cash for Crash?QIm considering selling my stocks and keeping the cash in case the market crashes so I can grab some bargains. Is that a good idea? S.W., Jeannette, Pennsylv aniaAIf you sell your stocks and the market does crash, you will have acted brilliantly. But what if the market keeps rising for a good while longer? Youll miss out on a lot of gains. No one knows what the market will do in the short term. In the long run, it tends to go up. That said, keep any money youll need within the next five (or even 10) years out of stocks, since a crash can happen at any time. But otherwise, its often best to remain fully or mostly fully invested, and to try to add to your holdings when it sinks. If youre not comfortable in stocks, though, sell some or all of them. ***QIm intrigued by certain industries. How can I learn enough about them so I can invest in them? J.O., DallasAIndustries vary in their complexities, so some will be easier to understand (retailing, travel, consumer products) than others (biotechnology, financial services). Youll learn the most by reading broadly. Read many annual reports of companies in the industry, including the comprehensive 10-K reports that detail each companys successes, challenges and plans. Dont worry if you dont immediately understand it all many concepts will sink in over time. Your brokerage may have Wall Street analyst reports available for companies of interest, and youll likely find articles at Fool.com and elsewhere on companies of interest. If youre serious about developing investing skills, learn more about accounting. Being able to understand financial statements is very valuable. Want more information about stocks?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 BUSINESS A31 MONEY & INVESTINGTreasury note yields may signal a recession on horizonWouldnt it be great if right before there was a recession and market correction there was some flashing sign that alerted investors to the impending doom? There is such a sign in the market. Before the 1981, 1991 and 2000 recessions, and even the financial crisis of 2006, the Treasury yield curve inverted. What is an inverted yield curve and is it giving us a warning today? The Treasury yield curve is a graph of the interest rates of U.S. government debt starting with one-month Treasury bills all the way through 30-year bonds in order of maturity. A normal yield curve is upward sloping where the onemonth Treasury bill interest rate is the lowest. As the term of the debt increases, so does the rate. This should make intuitive sense as typically, investors would want to be compensated with a higher interest rate to tie up their money for a longer period of time. However, from time to time, the curve inverts. This is when longer-term debt actually has a lower interest rate than short-term debt. In other words, a 10-year Treasury note would have a lower yield than a five-year note. This occurs because investors believe that interest rates will fall dramatically in the future. So, they are willing to accept a lower 10-year yield because they believe if they buy a five-year note today, at maturity when they have to re-invest their money, rates will be so much lower that they are better off buying a 10-year slightly lower-yielding note today. And, generally speaking, lower rates are caused by the Fed pushing down rates to jumpstart the economy. When the yield curve inverts, it is the bond market anticipating that the economy is about to slow down, which will cause the Fed to lower rates to stimulate it. Which is why typically when the curve inverts, a recession is not far behind. In the last 10 years, since the start of the Great Recession when the Fed pushed short-term rates to effectively zero, the yield curve has been normal and upward sloping. Recently, however, the curve has started to flatten. Today the difference in rates between the twoyear Treasury note and 10-year note is only about .75 percent. This is the lowest level since the financial crisis. Does this mean that the yield curve is about to invert and we are heading for a recession? Analysts point out that there are unique factors affecting the curve right now. We are experiencing a time of multi-year economic growth, wealth creation and market gains, yet inflation is minimal. That keeps longterm rates low. At the same time, the Fed is unwinding its quantitative easing program, which increases the Fed funds rate, pushing short-term rates higher. Despite these circumstances, investors should keep an eye on the yield curve. Some analysts believe that the Fed is being too aggressive in pushing rates higher, which could lead to another recession. Others point out political and geopolitical risks that are underappreciated. Should the curve continue to flatten and potentially invert, this would be a huge warning sign to equity investors to lighten up their exposure and become more defensive with their portfolios.

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYmovie It, said Jim Dearborn, a district sales manager for Spirit Halloween, which has pop-up stores in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Naples and across Palm Beach County. That stuff has just been flying off the shelves. Spirit has more than 1,300 seasonal stores in North America. Besides clowns, masks from the Saw and The Purge horror movie franchises have been popular, Mr. Dearborn said. The company also has the licensed rights to sell masks, home dcor and other items based on the Disney movie Hocus Pocus and Netflix drama Stranger Things. For retailers, the Halloween season begins in August. Hurricane Irma for some stores wiped out weeks of profit near the height of their season in September. Mr. Dearborn expected to recover in the few weeks before the holiday. Typically, the last 10 days of Halloween is when you do over 60 percent of your business for the entire year, he said. They always say Halloweens a business that in a good economy does really great and even in a bad year if its a bad year people are looking for ways to escape a little bit and have a little bit of fun and forget what their problems are. Since the hurricane, sales have been brisk at some shops, suggesting people are making up for lost shopping time. (Irma) killed our whole month of September, which is usually one of our busiest months, said Crissy Barchers, owner of Red Headed Witches, a year-round costume and accessories shop located in an old funeral home in Cape Coral. But during the first week in October, her sales were up 35 percent. This year, Steampunk-inspired costumes have been in fashion, she said, along with a versatile gothic look which can be parlayed into any number of characters such as vampires, dark angels and sorcerers. While her store carries a full range of costumes, masks and other accessories for any age, it specializes in boutique items that could satisfy even serious Cosplayers. She also employs a makeup artist who can help customers achieve a frightening level of gory detail. (Reservations recommended.) You can really take your costume to the next level, said Ms. Barchers, who opened her shop five years ago. In West Palm Beach, RIP Halloween Costumes is a seasonal pop-up store under a big tent alongside the related Mr. Jack O Lanterns Pumpkin Patch. Its the first year for RIP, which is owned by Scott Sanchez and Brandon Helfer. They also run a seasonal Christmas shop and spend part of the year in Los Angeles. In addition to a wide array of masks, costumes, accessories and pumpkins, RIP and the Pumpkin Patch offer a pumpkin slide, pumpkin bowling, a ring toss and a petting zoo with goats, baby chickens and bunnies. The parents will be shopping for some Halloween costumes and the kids are playing, Mr. Sanchez said. Its nice. Besides clown and Trump masks, other popular characters this year include Wonder Woman, Transformers and Marvel superheroes, Mr. Sanchez said. The items are available on the stores website as well. While RIP is one of the latest costume shops to open in South Florida, Masquerade & Balloons Galore is one of the oldest. It has a 6,000-square-foot showroom in Naples and an 1,800-square-foot shop in North Fort Myers. Masquerade has been run by the Baier family for nearly 25 years and is open year-round, offering upscale holiday home decorating in the months after Halloween. In addition to a full line of retail items, accessories and props, Masquerade specializes in rental costumes with about 11,000 options. From Angels to Zorro and everything in between, said owner Rodney Baier, who runs Masquerade with his wife Barbara and daughter Bethany. Full-scale Kermit the Frog, Super Mario and numerous other heads you might recognize wait for rental on the top shelves of the North Fort Myers location. Besides clowns and robots, at Masquerade whats old is new again. The 0s have been popular again, Mr. Baier said. The gangster and flapper dresses. Besides dedicated costume shops, thrift stores are great destinations for do-ityourself creations. Goodwills retail stores across the country specialize in Halloween costumes. The stores arrange their used clothing in costume categories along with brandnew seasonal products such as makeup or wigs to make Goodwill stores a one-stop shop for the holiday, said John Nadeau, vice president of operations for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. Halloween trends this year for Goodwill include funny, simple (and) iconic costumes, a spokesperson said, while sexy, political (and) gory costumes have fallen in popularity. Goodwill aims to compete with chain and big-box stores such as Target or Spirit. Mr. Nadeau begins preparing for Halloween nearly a year in advance, attending trade shows and figuring out what new accessory items to stock for popular costumes such as this years clown favorite, and other tried-and-true costumes such as police officers and cowboys. He argues that purchasing real, discount clothes at Goodwill is a better value than packaged costumes at stores such as Target. Lets say you wanted to be a police woman, wed sell you a real blue skirt and a real white blouse and then the accessories for the badge or police club or hat, he said. We think we offer you a lot better value and options than shopping at a costume store. You could also just skip shopping for Halloween. Thats what Cape Coral resident John Karcher, 66, did when he was a kid. Mr. Karcher, who is running for city council in the Cape, had stopped in to Masquerade last week to rent an Uncle Sam costume for a Republican party meeting. When he was growing up in Louisville, Ky., his outfits were simpler. I just usually put on a dirty old T-shirt and carried a stick with a hobo bag, he said.

He was the founder and CEO of Member Health, a leader in the discount pharmacy industry which rose to a multi-billion dollar company. He was a pioneer in the start-up industry long before that was cool. A little over a year ago, a mutual business associate brought us together. He had a great idea with Aesthetic Treatment Centers but the business lacked leadership with experience in the med-spa industry and was not on the right path. He didnt sugar coat the gravity of the state that the business was in, however, we formed an instant connection that centered around a desire to bring the best standard of care, customer service, technology and integrity to the industry. The mission was to turn the business around without additional investment. It has most certainly been a challenge and he has been there with not only sage advice, but has always recognized and celebrated our victories along the way. We are now moving in the right direction and partnering with the right people to develop a strong national brand.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Figure out what youre passionate about and work 10 times harder at it than your competitors are willing to.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 | B1WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMCOASTAL REAL ESTATE GUIDENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE IRMA, B20 COURTESY PHOTOS As expected, home sales took a hit from Irma SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHome sales across much of the Sunshine State took a big hit in September from Hurricane Irma. The impact from Hurricane Irma was wide-ranging across Florida, though the devastation and damage was certainly greater in some areas, such as the Keys and in Naples, said 2017 Florida Realtors President Maria Wells, broker-owner with Lifestyle Realty Group in Stuart. But there were other consequences from Irma that disrupted the states economy and housing market as people took needed time for hurricane preparations and one of the largest evacuations in Floridas history, she added. Once Irma passed over the state, it took days or even longer to restore power to many areas, residents had to return from evacuations, and there was still debris cleanup, insurance claims and other issues to handle in the hurricanes aftermath. Its not surprising that Hurricane Irma had a negative impact on existing home and condominium sales across most local markets in September. Thats a normal occurrence after a hurricane, Ms. Wells said. To understand housing market conditions in their area, especially in times like this, consumers should work with a local real estate professional who can guide them through the complicated process of buying or selling a home, she added. According to Florida Realtors, single-family sales statewide were down 20.4 percent compared to September 2016. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes last month was $239,900, up 7.6 percent from the previous year, according to data from the Florida Realtors research department in partnership with local Realtor boards/associations. The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties in September was $173,000, up 8.1 percent

B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutSales strong in Tower 2 The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. Kalea Bays Inga Lodge and Lori Pheasant are also among the best in their industry. During the recent Sand Dollar Awards, sponsored by the Collier Building Industry Association, Lodge was named the Sales Manager of the Year and Pheasant took home the Sales Person of the Year award. The three furnished models at Kalea Bay, which are located in Tower 1, also received several prestigious Sand Dollar Awards in a multitude of categories including, two for Interior Design of the Year and two for Best Specialty feature. One of the models also won in the category Best Closet Design. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 REAL ESTATE B13 ronto.com Perfecting Development Naples nest golf community Creating the Regions Most Exciting Communities, featuring Luxurious Homes with World-Class Amenities in Spectacular Resort Locations. COMING SOON! A Spectacular New Community on Central Avenue in Downtown NaplesPROUD DEVELOPERS OF:What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? The amount of family buyers, particularly first-time buyers, continues to grow. Builders are finally trying to reach that segment of the market after having abandoned it due to concerns over lack of financing and the employment market.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? We are actively developing communities aimed at family buyers. Orange Blossom Ranch & Groves is a great example. Weve built an amenity package that is aimed at families with multiple resort pools, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, a clubhouse with a great fitness center and its adjacent to an elementary, middle and high school. The floor plans are spacious and family-conscious, and its reasonably priced in the low $300s to $400s. Our goal for 2017 was to bring to market communities that serve what everyone agreed was the most underserved segment of the market the $300,000 to $500,000 segment. Orange Blossom accomplishes that in a meaningful way. Name the top elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Building a great team of employees and empowering them to get the job done right. Being disciplined when buying land and understanding its value to future homeowners. And listening to my father and other mentors. Theres a reason theyve been in business for so long. I take that responsibility very seriously. We also make a point to build strong relationships with suppliers, contractors, landowners, and brokers. Treating them fairly and with respect is paramount to the success of both sides of the coin. They are your partners in various business ventures; they need to have confidence that you will close a deal or bring a project to fruition. What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business? The permitting process in general needs to be simplified and streamlined. There are too many permits, inspections and fees. Some of these things need to be amalgamated and assigned to one discipline, one inspector.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? We offer a wide range of products from very high-end condominiums to popularly priced single-family developments. We also market more than other builders/developers and dont lump all of our projects together. Each project has its own identity; you want to speak to that specific purchaser in that specific market. What will you base your success on for 2018? Delivering the Seaglass Tower in Bonita Springs and 624 Palm in Sarasota. Finishing those will be a great accomplishment. Seaglass Tower is a 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise tower being built within the Bonita Bay community. Its a wonderful addition to an already beautiful Bonita Springs community. How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Giving my employees more latitude to make decisions. That independence and responsibility will build the skillsets that are most valuable.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year? Weve hired a construction manager and hes been invaluable for quality control and identifying potential issues during the construction process.What do you truly love about working here in Collier County? I love that its a smaller community that offers so much. This quality of life is pretty spectacular. I really enjoy the people I work with, a lot of them have been associated with us for years and theyre like family.

September was the 70th month in a row that statewide median prices for both sectors rose year-over-year. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less. According to the National Association of Realtors, the national median sales price for existing single-family homes in August 2017 was $255 ,500, up 5.6 percent from the previous year; the national median existing condo price was $237,600. In California, the statewide median sales price for existing singlefamily homes in August was $565,330; in Massachusetts, it was $398,125; in Maryland, it was $287,816; and in New York, it was $270,000. Looking at Floridas townhousecondo market, statewide closed sales totaled 7,404 last month, down 15.9 percent compared to September 2016. Closed sales data reflected fewer short sales and foreclosures last month. Short sales for townhouse-condo properties declined 57 percent and foreclosures fell 62.3 percent year-to-year; short sales for single-family homes dropped 60.8 percent and foreclosures fell 60 percent year-to-year. Closed sales may occur from 30 to 90-plus days after sales contracts are written. Perhaps the most important thing to understand about Septembers sales numbers is that these declines in real estate activity are not in any way indicative of a decline in the demand for housing going forward, or any other structural change in Floridas housing market dynamics, for that matter, said Florida Realtors Chief Economist Brad OConnor.

What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?Consumer confidence is up and theres responsible buying/selling. Clients actually get it and are planning for their future in responsible ways. Even a seller loss can be a benefit for their familys future. It is an exciting time to be selling real estate.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? Full-time economy. We dont have to wait for season to buy or sell. Efforts for my clients are 12 months a year with an ever so slight twist of local focus and up north reachout in the summer months that results in sales for my clients.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Not to be clich, but I really do care for my clients. My practice is identifying clients wants and needs, taking time to do so, and examining how we present their property or an offer to purchase with careful review. I take the time upfront to care for my client well before we write a contract. Step by step is my motto.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business? I would love to see the level of professionalism I am accustomed to from my years of NYC business transferred to real estate agent processes. The business of real estate is a business and it should be handled in that format no matter the property price or age of client. Documentation needs to be carefully responded to, not rushed and unprofessional.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? To differentiate myself, I have the courage to slow down the initial process. I stage a home well before photos. Too many agents rush to MLS and may hurt prices. Buying clients: I prepare pre-meetings, conference calls, pre-approvals, proof of funds This ensures my buyer is perceived as the best at offer presentation.Whats your superpower? Listening is my super power. Asking questions and clearly learning what a sale will bring to my clients life is the key to doing my job. I have their goal in mind during the process. Listening is key in my negotiating the best deal for my buyers and sellers in real estate.What will you base your success on for 2018?To clearly communicate the benefits of my daily business schedule and plans of action to my clients, Realtors and affiliates. Following the daily schedule provides a huge success rate for my clients. Explaining the process to those who dont follow a schedule in my industry is the challenge.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?My dad once said no one can take away your education. For that reason I employ a weekly business coach and attend prospecting clinics, listing processes, production retreats. Results are tracked so we can learn how to improve our results for the benefit of our clients.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year? Past clients are the base of my business and I want to be sure to keep in touch more often so its database manager. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County/Charlotte County/Palm Beach County? Thats easy. Every day is sunny. Even on a gray day the atmosphere of our people is sunny. Our growth is conservative, however forward moving. You no longer see neon signs and our gas stations have palm trees. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? Honestly, my inspiration was provided by my business coach. Coach: Kelly, buyers and sellers need your work ethic, professionalism and cando attitude. Kelly, you need to find clients to help. If they dont work with you they can get a less than real estate experience. So go out and find clients who need your work ethic. Who is a mentor to you within your industry?Mike Ferry. He reminds me: Professionalism beats trends, young or flashy. A hard days work... works He reminded me recently, Kelly, to date, computers are not buying properties. Personal contact is ever most necessary.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Be the one who is professional and does more than is expected. Even if sometimes you do everyone elses job, do it with a smile. Its not about the zeros. Business is about helping your clients achieve their goals. If that is your focus you can make a good living and sleep well at night. Listening is key for both buyers and sellers Kelly E. CapolinoKelly E.

Five events feature a solo presenter, and five feature two authors matched by a common theme (the authors sharing the bill do not co-present or share the stage, but provide back-to-back presentations). And one event showcases the talents of three debut novelists, speaking individually and then participating in a panel discussion and Q&A. Heres the complete lineup: 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Hilton Naples: Meet Steve Dorff (I Wrote That One Too a Life in Songwriting from Willie to Whitney). This witty biography includes anecdotes about dozens of stars who have recorded Mr. Dorffs songs, many of them becoming Top 10 hits.

The programming includes featurelength narratives, documentaries and short films interspersed with Q&As and panel discussions with filmmakers and industry experts. The red carpet opening starts at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, and includes a screening of the celebrated documentary Charged: The Eduardo Garcia Story at ArtisNaples. The rest of the films will be shown throughout the weekend at Silverspot in Mercato (be sure to check the schedule to see which movies will have a filmmaker in attendance). NIFF wraps up Sunday evening, Oct. 29, back at ArtisNaples with awards and a screening of Stuck, a modern musical about six strangers stranded on a New York City subway. A 17-person selection committee reviewed more than 500 submissions before settling on this years lineup. Its like putting on a wedding for 48 different brides. Its exciting and then afterward youre like, Oh, my God. Its a lot of coordination, said festival producer Shannon Franklin. NIFF patrons will see new and developing talent emerging on the silver screen as well as more established actors and filmmakers getting their creative jiggles out by performing or directing independent films. For example, actor Bill Pullman can be seen in the Western film The Ballad of Lefty Brown, and Elizabeth Moss (Offred in Hulus The Handmaids Tale) appears in Mad to be Normal with Dr. Whos David Tennant. Weve always been really intentional to pick the best of independent films and a wide variety of them, Ms. Franklin said. Whatever you gravitate toward, we have it. For example: 0 Weeks is a USAmade drama about a young couple that learns their unborn baby might have a serious health issue. The musical American Folk has a message about the kindness of strangers and the power of music. And The Boy Downstairs is the funny story of a young woman whos forced to reflect on her first relationship when she inadvertently moves into her ex-boyfriends apartment building. And those who live and breathe for the movies will no doubt want to pick a seat for The Fabulous Allan Carr, a documentary about the bombastic producer who gained fame for the movie Grease and the Broadway sensation La Cage Aux Folles but fell from grace after he conceived the notorious 1989 Academy Awards. The Florida premiere screens at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, and 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29.A red carpet openingFollowing a years-long tradition, organizers have chosen an inspirational documentary to kick off the festival. Charged: The Eduardo Garcia Story debuted in February at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and tells the story of a rising chef and avid outdoorsman who is electrocuted with 2,400 volts while exploring the Montana backcountry near his home in Bozeman. Those types of films really resonate with our community, Ms. Franklin said. Especially after Hurricane Irma, she added, Its important to have a film that says big things happen in life that you dont expect, and its how you come out of it that matters. Documented by Mr. Garcias former partner, caregiver and collaborator Jennifer Jane, Charged captures his recovery process starting minutes after his injury, which resulted in the loss of his hand, among other injuries. Prior to the accident, the pair had been filming an outdoor cooking show that highlighted his talents as a rising young chef. We did not have plans to make a film. I think Jenny started filming as a way to show me what happened while I was knocked out on hardcore medicine, Mr. Garcia said. Jennys mind as a producer had already considered capturing it because it would be good for me to have and might be good content for the future. Filming and producing also helped Mr. Garcia process his accident and its aftermath, particularly re-learning many mundane and professional activities. As a survivor of a traumatic injury, it takes a long time to get to a place where you feel grounded and are able to rebound. Bringing this film to the public was a constructive and helpful way to engage myself in the process, he said. The process of having a film made asked me to answer the hard questions it would be easier to put under the rug and not deal with. It was a very cathartic way to make sure I was active in the healing process. That doesnt mean the two were quite ready to use the footage. It took some convincing by producers Dennis Aig and Phillip Baribeau to get them on board. We had a series of conversations and finally convinced them to trust us with the story of the recovery and their relationship, Mr. Aig said. Despite the film being primarily about Mr. Garcias injury and recovery, Mr. Aig and Mr. Baribeau were also interested in examining his relationship with Jane and her role as his caregiver. Phil and I both agreed early on that what we wanted to do was tell Eduardos story, but also focus on their relationship because the role of caregiver is often ignored. We thought that was an important part to the recovery story, Mr. Aig said. Its a survival story and a love story, although the love story is unconventional. Mr. Garcia is still and avid outdoorsman and athlete, but he also does motivational speaking and has co-founded the food brand Montana Mex. His hope is that film audiences will take away the lesson that that everyone has bad experiences, but its important to reach out to loved ones and make the most of every day. We were born screaming and kicking and punching our way into this world, and I believe its easy to start sleep walking, he said, adding, Its kind of a battle and a fun fight. I hope Charged gives audiences a jolt to run that mile or make amends with that friend or family member. Lifes too short, and you never know. Mr. Garcia, Ms. Jane and Mr. Aig will be attend the opening night presentation and take questions from the audience after the screening and then mingle with NIFF patrons at the VIP after party. Theres also another documentary about chefs in the NIFF lineup this year: New Chefs on the Block follows two chefs in Washington, D.C., as they struggle to open their first restaurants. Against all odds, one becomes the most famous new chef in America. The other is forced to redefine success. Featuring legendary chefs and restaurateurs Danny Meyer, Mike Isabella and Michel Richard, it screens at Silverspot at 5:35 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, and 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29.On the shorts sideAnother highlight of film festivals, and particularly this one, is the opportunity to view a variety of short films, a genre that is not widely available to the general public. Ranging in length from two to 20 minutes, this years NIFF shorts have been bundled according to themes Beginnings and Endings, for example, and Choices for about 90 minutes of viewing. The shorts are films that just dont get theatrical distribution anymore, Jonathan Foerster of ArtisNaples said. You used to get a short film before youd see your feature film, but most places dont do that anymore because theyre selling ads in front the movie. Shorts, he added, are sort of the first steps for a lot of film makers This is how theyre getting their start at the cutting edge of independent film because they are so laser focused on an idea. Theyre tight narratives that are very distilled down to their essence. Elaine Newton, who has led film and book discussions for more than 20 years as part of the lifelong learning curriculum at ArtisNaples, will conduct two lectures as part of the festival. At 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 27, she will talk about the merger of NIFF and ArtisNaples, and at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, she will discuss women in film. Admission is free, but reservations are required and can be made at www.artisnaples.org/niff.

You might be surprised to learn how much their architecture has influenced him, because he himself creates clean, modern buildings, so seemingly unlike the ancient ruins. In fact, Mr. Abbott is one of the youngest and last remaining members of the Sarasota School of Architecture. But the Maya have strongly influenced his architectural design, especially how they viewed the earth and the sun, he says. Hell talk about the Maya, with great enthusiasm and passion, in Movement/ Space and the Maya at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers. The evening is presented by the American Association of Architects Florida SouthWest. All are welcome. Its never the same talk, he says. I go every six months to the Maya world, and every talk is influenced by what Ive just seen. Its not a stock talk at all. He first lectured about the Maya to the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., six years ago. He also spoke at the global Maya conference, the only architect in a sea of archaeologists. His passion for the Maya, their architecture and their culture, is infectious. He doesnt approach the topic like an archaeologist. I look at the world as an architect, and at how their architects would perceive the world, he says. On the first day he visits a site, he looks at the various buildings. The next day, he returns to specific sites he wants to see in more detail, and makes sketches. And only then, he reads about them, to see if I agree or disagree. Theres no one way to interpret these things, he says. The Sarasota architect, who attended high school in Fort Myers, has long been interested in ancient civilizations. He recalls taking his then very young sons to the Yucatan in the mid-70s. He thought theyd be overwhelmed by what they saw, but I was knocked over, he says. I had no idea the buildings were so grand and so beautifully designed, the way they work with the land and the sun as it changes in the seasons. The land is sacred. When you did a building, you were on sacred ground. You needed to treat the building with respect and the land with respect. I saw the same (mentality) in Greece and Rome. While studying at Yale, he had a revelation in architectural historian Vincent Scullys class The Earth, the Temple, and the Gods. In his coffee-table book titled In/ formed By the Land: The Architecture of Carl Abbott, Mr. Abbott writes that Mr. Scully described how the architects of the ancient world developed a great harmony between their sacred structures and the earth, which was to them profoundly sacred and even romantic in spirit To me this was an unexpected awakening. When Mr. Abbott works with a client, he starts by walking around the site at various times of day, to get a full sense of the views and the land. Hell look at it from different levels, from the water or from above the way the Maya and the Greeks and Egyptians worked with their buildings so they relate to the land, the view lines and the breezes. He orients his buildings to take advantage of the seasonal changes and passages of time. And from there, the buildings organically take shape. My buildings really tie in with the land, he says. (Whether its) a small building, a residence, a school, a church we try to work with the land as much as we possibly can. The Maya would be thoughtful about where they put openings in the building, to get the maximum amount of sunlight. The same approach works in our subtropical climate. Here in Florida, with the sun in the winter, you want to get a lot of sunlight, which is physically and psychologically necessary, he explains. You want to have openings on the south side of the building. In the summer, its almost directly overhead, so no light would come in through the opening in the south side. So right there, youre working with nature, letting it warm you in the winter and not heat you in the summer. Those are ancient, obvious things, but most architects couldnt care less. He also embraces asymmetry in his work, often designing buildings like a shell: clean and very strong on the outside, yet presenting a different, more intimate face to its tenants. Those are things Ive always loved in architecture, he says. To see a building that has a presence to the community, and then an intimate sense of presence to the owners, a more important side, usually facing a view, if there is a view. Mr. Abbott earned his masters in architecture at Yale, studying under famed architect Paul Rudolph. He worked with Richard Rogers and Norman Foster in London and then moved to New York City to work for I.M. Pei (who designed the Louves glass pyramid in Paris and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.). He founded his own practice in Sarasota in 1966, where he still works and travels to Mexico as often as he can. I get excited talking about architecture and the Maya architecture. Every trip I do, I get reinvigorated by the awareness of their awareness. ABBOTTSEAN HARRIS / COURTESY PHOTOArchitect Carl Abbott designed the Butterfield Lagoon House near Sarasota with various angles and planes to make the best use of the sun and air. Mr. Abbott travels to Mexico twice a year to study the architecture of the Maya and says his passion for his work is reinvigorated with every trip. >> What: Movement/Space and the Maya, a lecture by Sarasota architect Carl Abbott >> Who: Hosted by the American Association of Architects FlaSW Chapter >> When: Thursday, Nov. 2, 6 p.m. cocktails and canaps followed by lecture >> Where: Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, Fort Myers >> Cost: $20 >> Tickets: www.eventbrite.com (search for Carl Abbott) or email rick@ indigoarchitecture.com

The play by Jordan Harrison follows a young and successful but stressed-out New York couple, Katha and Ryu, who feel like prisoners in their perfectly imperfect 21st-century lives. After they meet Dean, a charismatic man from a community of 1950s re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties and surprise themselves by what they are willing to sacrifice for happiness. I think we can all agree that our current society is more divided, more disconnected than any time in recent memory, said TNPs Artistic Director Bryce Alexander. Perhaps this is why slogans like Make America Great Again seem to have struck such a powerful chord within our communities. We yearn for a simpler time where things felt more cut and dry, a little less daunting. Maple and Vine is an exploration in that desire, he added. It asks us to look at what forces might be driving us apart. Has technology and the ease of the connection that it brings made us less aware? Has technology made tasks so easy that we no longer feel like we have purpose? Is there comfort in having limited options? The playwrights Marjorie Prime was a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Its film adaptation premiered in the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and is receiving critical praise as a sci-fi exploration of our inner lives. Maple and Vine premiered at the 2011 Humana Festival at Actors Theatre of Louisville and went on to productions at American Conservatory Theatre and Playwrights Horizons. Dan Bacalzo, assistant professor of theater at Florida Gulf Coast University, plays the role of Ryu. As a critic in New York City, Mr. Bacalzo reviewed the original production of Maple & Vine at Playwrights Horizon. Tina Moroni has the role of Katha. Jesse Hughes and Jessica Walck perform as the enthusiastic 1950s re-enactors Dean and Ellen. While playgoers will be swept away by the nostalgic of the 1950s costumes in Maple & Vine, Mr. Harrison never lets his audience forget that the grass is not always greener on the other side of that SEE MAPLE & VINE, C14 PATRICE SHIELDS / COURTESY PHOTOJesse Hughes, Dan Balcalzo (standing), Jessica Walck and Tina Moroni in a scene from Maple & Vine. xpl o e g y of Kath a
vintage Cadillac Eldorado. In their retrolife, Ryus career as a plastic surgeon is replaced by a monotonous post-war factory job and Kathas world is no longer constricted by packed schedules but is instead confined to the home, where having dinner ready for her husband is the focus of her day. While the limitations imposed by 1950s culture bring simplicity and order to their out-of-control life, their divergence from the cultural norms of the time, including their interracial marriage, prove to be as isolating as their fast-paced, over-structured lives. The play isnt about picking a side, a decade, or a generation, Mr. Alexander said. Its about choosing now Instead of looking back, or burying our heads in our phones or our TVs, imagine if we all chose to engage with the people with us now. Imagine how much could be accomplished if we all just tried to live together in the present. Playing on the main stage at the Sugden through Nov. 5 is She Kills Monsters.

Only The Brave (Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges) Firefighters in Arizona bond and battle wildfires in this dramatic true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Its not perfect, but its moving enough to do the real people justice. Rated PG-13.Victoria & Abdul (Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Michael Gambon) The friendship between Queen Victoria (Dench) and an Indian servant (Fazal) late in her life is chronicled in director Stephen Frears latest. Its a bit scattered in terms of narrative tone, but overall the touching, symbiotic friendship is a welcome sight to see. Rated PG-13.American Made (Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright) Airline pilot Barry Seal (Cruise) is recruited by the CIA to take pictures over Central America, then becomes involved in drug and gun smuggling. Its a captivating story that will keep you rooting for the anti-hero, but it doesnt have the visual panache this kind of film should feature. Rated R.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.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.Happy Death Day 1/2(Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine) Sorority girl Tree (Rothe) is murdered, then relives the day until she can find the killer. Its illogical and lame, with few original ideas and plenty of logical gaps. Rated PG-13.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. FILM CAPSULES

One day hes strong and virile, playing tennis with his friends and loving life. The next day hes paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe on his own. Its polio. Now he requires a respirator to breathe and around-the-clock care. Even thoughts of his loving wife Diana (Claire Foy, The Crown) and unborn son are too torturous to bear, knowing hell never be the father he always envisioned himself being. Breathe tells a sad (and true) story, to be sure, but its also one of unexpected hope. Slowly, R obin adapts to his condition, and thanks to caring friends and loved ones, finds happiness within it. If only all of us could be so strong in such a situation. As Robin, Garfield continues to demonstrate considerable range. Last year he was an Oscar nominee for Hacksaw Ridge, and he may well be one again for Breathe, though the roles could not be more different. In the former he played a war hero who used every inch of his being to save lives; in this film we only see his face after the first 20 minutes, with his legs and upper body almost always covered in blankets when hes paralyzed. This doesnt take away his voice, though, and Garfield also so effectively uses his eyes and facial expressions that he controls viewers emotions with a simple glance. Its powerful stuff. It comes as a surprise to learn the film marks the directorial debut of Andy Serkis, heretofore an actor best known for performance capture roles (Caesar in the new Planet of the Apes movies, Gollum in Lord of the Rings, etc.). His inexperience does not show. William Nicholsons screenplay provides standard foreshadowing in the beginning, and perhaps a few too many on-the-nose lines of dialog throughout (I dont want to just survive. I want to truly live! Robin says), but as a whole, director Serkis balances the pathos with positivity relatively well. This is important because it prevents full-on, weepy, melodrama nonsense; the emotions evoked are earned, not manipulated for maximum reach for the tissues effect, which shows a respect for both the audience and the story. (Note: The film was produced by Jonathan Cavendish, the real Robin and Dianas son, who also produced Bridget Joness Diary and has worked in the film industry since 1990.) Through it all, the love of Garfield and Foys Robin and Diana keeps the narrative grounded. It is unwavering and inspiring in its purity, making it the type of love we all hope to have. Breathe isnt everything a movie can be and its certainly not for everyone but it is a lovely love story thatll make you feel good and maybe even shed a tear or two. That makes it a worthwhile trip to the movies. t d p t m e m dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Footage of the real Robin and Diana is used before the end credits.Did you know?

For some, its hoarding. You can fill your house or garage or warehouse with indiscriminate mountains of stuff. Much of it may have no logic, but its yours. For others, its about curating. Those collectors want the best of the best. The most beautiful, the rarest. Most of us fall somewhere in between. As for me, I seek out items that catch the eye because of design or quality. Quality is what wins out for me every time, if only because quality endures. I liken it to a pair of shoes a pair of inexpensive loafers looks like you cut corners after a few wearings. But a pair of Ferragamos gains patina with time even if youre walking through holes in the soles, those shoes still look like Ferragamos. Yes, theres something to be said for an old sole and for an old soul. A few years ago, I attended an estate sale handled by my friend, the late Lou Ann Wilson-Swan. The home she was liquidating was filled with quality antiques that had attracted top dollar from collectors in the 1970s and s. Among the objects was a set of a dozen Coalport dinner plates. The porcelain from which those plates were made had a light-grabbing quality that was matched by the handpainted decorations that covered each plate. That set would have sold for more than $1,000 in decades past. I bought the set for around $100 and never regretted it. My friend Jim Antone, a Jacksonville antiques dealer, saw the plates and said, A Rolls-Royce is a Rolls-Royce. The quality shone through hence my attraction to them. There also is something to be said for the eye-catching. I was thinking about that as I selected this weeks find a pair of 1940s Bakelite, or Catalin, napkin rings in the shape of chicks. Collectors now use the terms Bakelite and Catalin interchangeably, though Catalin is a little heavier. When Phenol-based plastics became widely available in the early 20th century, they were revolutionary. Here was a material that was relatively durable, colorful and inexpensive to make. It also was more fireresistant than its predecessor, celluloid. But it was so forward looking, too. Artisans never could have replicated these fanciful shapes in natural materials, like stone or wood or glass or tortoise. But using plastics, anything was possible even middle-class people could have affordable and attractive table settings. The word plastic became synonymous with something cheap. Thats unfortunate, because even something as basic as these napkin rings would have been hand-finished. But show me a red Bakelite radio, or caramel-colored cutlery handles, the deeply saturated greens of a mahjong set, and you have my attention. Theres nothing cheap or tacky about those. After all, they once were cutting edge, and all still have great graphic appeal. And, at least in this case, cuteness defies the decades. Bought: N oahs Ark Helping Pets, 824 B elvedere Road, West Palm Beach; 561833-8131. Paid: $10. The Skinny: My friend Janice Lowder, who owns this charity shop, had taken these napkin rings to sell at an antiques show without success. When she offered them to me for $10 a pair, I jumped at the opportunity. Theyre so much a product of their time probably the 1930s or s, when colorful plastics began to dominate the decorating scene. I love the stylized Art Deco-Art Moderne look of the birds, from their circular heads and bodies to their angled tail feathers. The napkin rings would have been cut from caramel-colored plastic and the burgundy beaks hand-inserted. I love knowing they have the patina of time there are wear marks on their bottoms and one of the beaks has a nick in its tip. But that doesnt diminish their pecking order in my collection. THE FIND:A pair of Bakelite napkin ringsSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThese Bakelite, or Catalin, napkin rings date from the 1930s or s. Each stands about 2 inches high.
Waiting at the Window BY GREIG MCCALUMNaplesShe watched him pull eagerly into the parking lot of the tired motel and gave him a little wave as he swaggered from the car, her perfect nails flashing blood red in the hot sunlight. Hurry, she thought, Im waiting for you. She hadnt planned for things to turn out this way, for her to be doing this necessary work, as she called it. It had simply become something she did. Not too often, although admittedly it was becoming more frequent. She should try to control that. She had so much to do, after all. No, it had simply occurred to her that if she didnt do it, then nobody would. Not the authorities, the police, the social workers, the probation officers. It was just too difficult. Too messy. And so the suffering would continue. More women and childrens lives ruined, their futures broken, their hopes and sometimes their lives extinguished. So, shed been pragmatic. Wasnt that what theyd always said about her? Deena is sensible and organized. She has a bright future ahead of her, her teachers had written in school. She smiled at the irony as she watched him take the stairs two at a time to the second floor and make his way along the concrete landing to where she waited. She felt calm, knowing exactly how this would play out. The first time, shed been more nervous. Shed made sure the mother and kids were out with people, locking in their alibi, saving them from more worry and hassle. Shed arranged the meeting at a local by-the-hour motel and shed given the man Tyler, a compact, sweaty bully the big come-on at the local dive bar, something he so clearly enjoyed. She smiled at the memory of his hot excitement as hed barged through the door, reaching out to her in anticipation of some fun in the afternoon. Instead he found the cold steel of the gun pressed into his gut, and a bullet shortly thereafter. A cheap trick gone bad, the cops decided. Happens all the time in these neighborhoods. A collective shrug: It wasnt like anyone actually missed Tyler Dupont. Shed been both appalled and thrilled at the sensation of killing a man. No, not a man: a monster. Her revulsion at her violence tempered and ultimately vanquished by the deep-rooted feeling of righting a profound wrong. Now the family would not suffer again at his tattooed fists or filthy boots. As he bled out, blinking into the dimming light, shed knelt close to his ear and whispered Honey, this is from Loretta and the kids, with a smile in her voice, just as theyd taught her at work. That had been seven times ago now. Shed been careful to vary her C20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY New TRAVELING Exhibit OPENS NOVEMBER 15! COMING SOON!

PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE WRITING CHALLENGE WINNERSTwo stories tie for second place in annual fiction contest BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comWhile there was just one overall winner from among 256 entries in the 2017 Florida Weekly Writing Challenge (see Oct. 19, page C1), two stories tied for second place and three came in third when the judges votes were tallied. This week we present the secondplace finishers, both of which were inspired by the accompanying photograph. Greig McCallum spent a couple of hours pounding out the first version of his dark story titled Waiting at the Window. The idea for it came instantly when I saw the rather moody photograph, he said. The hard part, he added, was editing down my initial story to the 750-word maximum allowed. That bit of work took ages. A recent transplant to Naples from the UK, Mr. McCallum owned an advertising agency in his former life. I wasnt a copywriter, but I have always enjoyed writing, he said. I suppose I just really love words. Mr. McCallum and his wife own Menchies Frozen Yogurt in Naples. Waiting at the Window is his first short story to be published. Fort Myers attorney Doug Molloy majored in film at the University of Florida and wrote movie reviews for newspapers in Miami. Hes also had some poetry and a few short stories published before, but all that was a long time ago, he told us. Now a practicing criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Molloy spent more than 20 years as chief assistant U.S. attorney for Southwest Florida. Considering his career, his take on our photo prompt, the story he titled Clarity makes perfect sense. As soon as I saw that picture, I thought about someone waiting, he said. And in my line of business, waiting is never good. It only means something that was supposed to happen, didnt happen. Like our friend Tom Petty said, The waiting is the hardest part. Three short stories tied for third place in this years Writing Challenge. Look for them in next weeks edition of Florida Weekly. MOLLOY MCCALLUM Florida Weekly Senior Editor Betty Wells took this photograph while vacationing in Greece. It inspired the two short stories that tied for second place in the 2017 Florida Weekly Writing Challenge. The first-place winner by Neapolitan Kristine Gill was published in the Oct. 19 edition.SEE WAITING, C21

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 26-NOVEMBER 1, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 Clarity BY DOUGLAS MOLLOYFort MyersSee, the way I look at it, she gave me up. Maybe she hasnt done it yet, but she will today, and if not today, it will be tomorrow, and if not then, it will be next week. Its simple: I dont know how anyone could see it differently. Im not saying I didnt like her, maybe even more than that. But so what? It is as clear as glass, clear as the mirror I looked into this morning while I was putting on my shirt. It is either her, or its me, and it damn sure isnt going to be me. Criminals are different from regular people. Oh, they use the same words, and they talk about the same things, for the most part their wives, their kids, how the game went, whatever. But their words dont mean the same thing. You would need an interpreter to get at it. And what a criminal is saying, no matter what words they use: They really dont give damn. They dont care at all. Not about you, not about anything. And criminals dont smile the way real people smile. It is a practiced smile, but you wouldnt mistake it for false. Like the smile a society cokehead makes when he doesnt want you to know hes as high as the penthouse ceiling. Theres an angry animal underneath that smile, detectable only if you are looking for it. Im always looking for it. I call us criminals because I dont know what else to call us. Sociopaths or sons-of-bitches is closer, unbelievably arrogant or self-important, inventing themselves every minute so it all works. They are the men who take. Remorse? Code? Just a punchline or a playing card. To a criminal, there is just me, and then theres everyone else. Thats it. Movies about the Mafia or bank heists, or the thousands of movies about hit men, they are all garbage. Not one word of truth. First of all, hit men are the lowest paid of anyone on the totem pole. Movies make it seem like they are some kind of elite living the sweet life, but they are the guys who will do anything anytime for a few dollars, so desperate all they have to do is be pointed in the right direction. I know a guy who killed someone for some porn and $500. Second of all, there is nothing a criminal cant leave in 10 minutes, 30 seconds, a second. A house, a car, a wife, a kid. You think about how that plays out. For us, its all just fast forward until you die. If you ever look backward, the runner passes you, the bear eats you or you have to admit to yourself that you really believed for a little while that you could be close to someone, someone could be trusted. She didnt start meaning to sell me out, but there it is. That is the cold, hard deal. There isnt anyone you can trust. Real people think that isnt true, but it is as true as the man about to point a gun at you. So here we are. Its like this she knows Im coming. Shes even finishing her cigarette and putting it out on the sill, letting me know what room shes in. More or less, I figure shes calm. WRITING CHALLENGE WINNERSMO. Used different disguises to book motels, twice even going to his place, knowing it had to be empty for him to suggest it. And shed used different guns. But then guns were pathetically easy to come by nowadays. Amusingly, the police had even asked her about the cases a few times, in her official capacity as a counselor for domestic abuse, to check if the wife could have done it. No, she always told them with a sad smile, the wife was way too terrified to even contemplate such a thing. True, of course. Thats why they needed her help. Speaking of which, this one Lee? Steve? was a particularly cruel example. His little boy was so scared of him he would wet himself and hide under the bed when his fathers car pulled in. His wife had been to ER with so many little accidents that the nurses had begged her to speak with a counselor. Which is where Deena had heard her story. And put him on her To Do list. And now, Deena would take care of things for her. And for as many women like her as she could. Because she was practical, hands-on, engaged. Just like those teachers had said. She heard heavy footsteps stop outside. Honey, Im here! he panted, thumping eagerly on the thin door. She could smell the booze and sweat from where she stood on the other side, feel his heat radiating through it. She calmly reached for the grubby door handle, tightening her grip on the gun held low at her side. Soon shed have one less case on her busy schedule, another one crossed off her list and the quiet satisfaction of a job well done. WAITINGFrom page 20

But the ultimate perk of Florida winter is being able to dine outside. In January. With little more than a sweater to ward off a chill. Its why even restaurants that arent on the water figure out a way to cluster some table outside. In places like Old Naples, downtown Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, sidewalk tables afford great spot from which to people watch while dining. At the beaches, there are spectacular water views, often with sunset vistas as a bonus. And just in case the air gets a bit brisk, most establishments have outdoor heaters to keep you toasty. That said, its always a good idea to take a sweater with you. Here are four of my favorite spots for dining al fresco.

This Naples favorite offers a stunning view of Venetian Bay along with excellent food and exceptional service. And as if thats not enough, the wine list is exemplary as well. The management describes the cuisine as cuttingedge continental a term coined by former executive chef Brian Roland and still used by current chef John Berry. What that means is food that isnt fussy but is fresh and carefully composed. The kitchen makes its own b utter a nd you may be tempted to make a meal of the bread as a result. Fresh fish selections and steaks are expertly executed but vegetables get their due as well. Try to save some room for dessert as these are all house-made and superb as well.

It used to be one of my favorite pastimes when they were little: A batch of this or that was enough to make them feel special for a few minutes and there was always a classroom, office or brother-in-law to claim the rest. Now that their appetites are larger, its not as easy or prudent to spend an afternoon making cookies or cupcakes. So I turn to local bakeries to for special treats. Angelic Desserts supplied the cupcakes that made their little hearts go pitter-pat this week. I took a bite from each (we call it the mom tax) to find the thick layer of cookies-and-cream icing had penetrated through the center of dense chocolate cake so it was thoroughly distributed through the sweet. Eureka! One More Thing: The bakery has an entire display case packed full of luscious-looking tarts, cakes, pastries and more, many of which are prepared with honey and organic ingredients.

Dinner and a Show Holiday PackagesStarting at $35 Per Person VINOGday, mate and good wine, tooWe were at a wine tasting in Aspen, sitting across a table from Stephen Henschke and Prue Henschke, with several glasses of their legendary Hill of Grace Shiraz in front of us. As I sipped through the vintages, I was blown away for several reasons. First, its one of the two or three most famous wines to come out of Australia (along with the fabled Penfolds Grange and Clarendon Astralis) and the people across from me were practically legends. Second, Hill of Grace costs about $350 a bottle, so theres not much chance Ill ever have any in my cellar. Third, the wine is arguably one of the purest expressions of what Australian winemaking is all about. Wine is a cultural artifact and reflects the general personality of the country and the people who produce it. I think this is particularly true for the Aussies. If youve ever hung out with any, you know them to be hale and hearty, outrageously sociable and your best friend right from the first handshake. Accompanied by a ringing Gday, mate, you get a slap on the back so hard it knocks you down. The wines do the same thing. Theyre often characterized as the in your face variety. Truer words were never spoken. Americans like the Aussie approach so much that the country will soon be the second largest importer. Surprisingly, about 60 percent of the grapes grown in Australia are white: Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon and the like. Around 30 percent are red and the rest go in to the stickies, or sweet wines. It is, of course, the big heavy, extracted, fruity reds that capture our attention and interest most vividly. In fact, the big Shirazes and blends can be so powerful they need to age for eons before youd dare open the bottle. (I attended a vertical tasting of Penfolds Grange a few years ago, and we drank the 1971. It could have used another 10 years in the cellar.) Unlike the French, Italians and even the Californians, most Aussie wines, even the greatest ones, are blended from fruit thats sourced from very extensive areas. Not much single-vineyard designation here, not much talk of terroir or importance of some sacred little piece of land that grows heavenly grapes. The designated winegrowing regions are enormous, and the grapes that wind up in the bottle come from far and wide. It would be like Napa winemakers blending in grapes from as far away as Washington State. Unthinkable for them.About 99 percent of the winegrowing regions are clustered in the southeast corner of the country, with Margaret River the lone exception, being located all the way over there in the far southwest. And most of the famous valleys, like Barossa and Coonawarra, are relatively close to cities, making wine tourism a very easy thing to do, as long as you dont mind driving on the wrong side of the road after a few tasting room visits. Another thing that makes Australian wines so much fun is that they like to put puckish and whimsical names on their bottles. The Monkey Spider. The Dead Arm. Carnival of Love. The Stump Jump (dont ask). Until next time, enjoy our new recommendations. Cline Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2016 ($11) A pleasant everyday drinking wine with a nice balance between the vanilla notes from the oak and the hint of green apple. Toward the finish you may detect some pineapple and citrus flavors as well. WW 88. CK Mondavi Family Merlot California NV ($8) Michael Mondavis value priced line of family wines is a good choice for everyday sipping. This Merlot is a deep garnet color in the glass, with straightforward flavors of purple plum, cherry, blackberry and maybe a bit of pepper. Nicely complex. WW 85-86. Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley 2014 ($43) If theres one thing Mike Grgich knows how to do, its make Chardonnay. This was the panels favorite white of our tasting session. A huge burst of creamy oak, followed by pronounced flavors of grapefruit. Soft and round on the palate with well-integrated subtle green apple, lemon and a slight hint of pepper. If you want to splurge a bit on an upper-end Chardonnay, this is the one. WW 94-95.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: I see the word reserve on some American wine labels. What does it mean? A: In the U.S., the word reserve has no special meaning. Winemakers can give any wine a reserve designation. However, in France, Italy and other Old World countries, the term is legally regulated and is used for wines that meet strict winemaking and aging requirements.

After all, they are full of sinfully rich cakes, pastries and other decadent goodies that I feel certain wreak havoc with my cholesterol levels even when I only look at them. But patronizing one like La Colmar allays some of that guilt because you can first have breakfast or lunch and then indulge in dessert. La Colmar is the creation of Yannick and Ana Brendel, a couple for whom food is a passion. Mr. Brendel is a thirdgeneration baker and pastry chef who grew up in France (in a town not coincidentally called Colmar in the Alsace region near Germany). He even imports his flour from France, preferring it to the more bleached and glutinous variety found in the States. His wife, who serves as restaurant manager, is of Dominican heritage and shares his strong commitment to serving top quality food with warmth. Their partners, Ed and Sue Mullen, are the founders of the Pan-Florida Challenge for Hungry Kids, a 180-mile charity bike ride that has so far raised $1.1 million to feed hungry children in south Florida. Like the Brendels, they are ardent food lovers, particularly of the French variety. This bakery-bistro feels like its been plucked off a French street and plunked down on U.S. 41 just north of old Naples, with the exception of the rather modern structure in which it sits along with its sister restaurant, Timeless an MHK Eatery, which is its own entity (but theres an open space that allows you to look from one into the other).The dining room has high ceilings with a subtle industrial look softened by a second-story window that gives the impression theres a charming little living space above the bakery. A faux finish, complete with some bricks peeking through, gives the room an Old World feel. The tables are scattered about so that parties can settle in with their goodies and enjoy the ambience and one another.The focal points of the room are three glass display cases that run almost the full length in front of the kitchen area. Customers just naturally gravitate to them. Colorful pastries eclairs and Napoleons and crme brulee and tarts fill the first case. The next is filled with baguettes, brioche, croissants, beehives, rustic country loaves, sourdough breads and more. On top of this case sit labeled cardboard boxes filled with cutup bites of the breads so customers may sample them. And sample they do. The third case holds the savory dishes that constitute meals: salads, benedicts, omelets and sandwiches customers may choose from and order. You pay at the counter, get a number and take a seat. In a little while, a server will deliver a freshly made version to the table. While having everything on display is visually appealing, the system is a little confusing unless, of course, you are of the life-is-uncertain-have-dessertfirst school. The staff is helpful and happy to explain how it works, so we made our way to the savory section, ordered lunch and beverages and headed off to await their arrival. The staff behind the counter was uniformly on point. Our server, unfortunately, was not. Over the course of our meal, she brought the wrong food to our table, attempted to deliver our dishes to another table, brought two desserts to us then waited a good 10 minutes before delivering the third all without a word of apology. We saw much better performances at the tables around us, so well assume we simply got the newest of the bunch or the one least invested. Nonetheless, the food was good. We sampled an avocado and goat cheese open-faced sandwich ($10), which came topped with an egg and accompanied by a small fresh salad with a creamy dressing. Everything was fresh and the combination of ingredients was delicious, particularly on the fresh-baked bread. A goat cheese omelet ($13) was also good, the eggs light and fluffy, accompanied by oven browned potatoes and two pieces of lightly toasted bread. The best of the bunch was a smoked salmon Benedict ($15) with a wondrously creamy hollandaise sauce atop a brioche. It, too, came with a salad. Of course, you must have dessert here and so we did. A Napoleon ($6.95) had the requisite layers of creamy custard, but the pastry was not the typical lightly crisp layers of puff pastry. Instead it had firmer layers that, while tasty, were difficult to cut. We could have used a knife but our server had disappeared. A vanilla clair ($6.95) was lovely, the choux pastry containing rich cream then topped with sweet vanilla icing and tiny contrasting colored dots. The icing on top was a bit too thick and sweet for my taste, but thats a personal preference. Others may find it just right. The crme brulee ($6.95) was creamy and properly fired on top so that the sugar was just lightly crisp perhaps thats what took it so long to arrive and was a satisfying end to the meal. Properly nourished and then some we proceeded to load up with croissants and loaves of rustic country bread to take home. I can heartily recommend the almond croissants and the rustic country loaf. Clearly more research is needed here. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com La Colmar Bakery & Bistro80 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 315-4303 Ratings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: >> Hours: 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday >> Reservations: No >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Savory dishes and salads, $10-$15; pastries and desserts, $5-$7 >> Beverages: Wine and beer served >> Seating: Conventional tables indoors and outside, a few upholstered chairs >> Specialties of the house: French pastries and breads >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website: www.lacolmar.comSuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYA fluffy omelet with goat cheese is rich and decadent.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYOne case holds a tantalizing display of freshbaked breads.
