T ALMOST WOULD SEEM TO BE THE WAR THAT NO ONE REMEMBERS. On Jan. 25, 1950, the Korean War broke out nearly 6,000 miles from American soil.

Either expansive, generous and willing, or not. I wont presume to speak for Texas women, but being a Big Texas man doesnt look easy. None of it starts with the notion of getting comfortable, of avoiding suffering at any cost, of ever surrendering to anything. Which is probably why Big Texans now appear on the highly endangered species list of American icons, a dwindling breed of boot-wearing, bornto-ride Lone Star mavericks who once pressed hot iron into the burning flank of American culture in significant numbers, giving us their own unique brand. They were cowboys, yes, but also farmers and truck drivers and teachers and war heroes and well-field workers and drifters and small-town shopkeepers. Songwriters and guitar players filled their ranks (some, like Woody Guthrie, were actually from Oklahoma) a species of the genus, Storyteller, itself a member of the family, American Artist. Theyre all of a part, those Big Texans. And every last Lone Star one of them would be worth meeting if ever you had a chance men often imbued with wit, candor, modesty and courage, whether or not they carried a drill, a book, a gun or a guitar. So Ill be sorry for any poor fool who fails to meet Big Texas in person come Saturday, Nov. 11, early evening, when Ray Wylie Hubbard steps out of a bus and into the World Famous Buckingham Blues Bar: The Buck, on Buckingham Road off SR 80 east of Fort Myers. Mr. Hubbards songwriting, born long ago in folk and blues, seems to have sharpened in recent years. At 70 hes touring on the tide of his latest LP, Tell the Devil Im Getting There As Fast As I Can. Now the faithless live in grays and faded purples/ And the gamblers never bet of twelves or twos/ The drunken poets disappear into deep shadows/ And the rock and roll believers sing the easy rider blues Tell the devil Im getting there as fast as I can/ Playing a sunburst Gibson in an alt country band/ And loving a woman who can out cuss any man/ Tell the devil Im getting there as fast as I can Mr. Hubbard will be joined at the Buck by his guitar-slinging son, Lucas, his gypsy-groove drummer, Kyle Snyder, and the stories of his life. He never leaves home without those stories. This one, for example, about the time he quit drinking and drugging with some help from a friend, recounted in his 2015 memoir: A Life Well, Lived. There aint no elevators, you got to take the steps, Stevie Ray and B.C. said almost together. I felt I was about to jump out of my skin. I hadnt had a drink or a rail of coke in over 24 hours. I sat across from them and mumbled, This is intense. They seemed not to hear me. You want to quit drinking? Yeah, thats why Im talking to you guys. Well, the first thing you do is quit drinking. Well I cant. Thats why Im talking to If you want to quit drinking, the first thing you do is quit drinking. If I could quit drinking, I wouldnt be here talking to The first thing you do if you want to quit drinking is quit drinking. Stevie Ray Vaughn another Big Texan had done it himself, so he knew what he was talking about. That was almost 30 years ago, and now Mr. Hubbard lives with his wife, Judy, in an old-time log home they restored about 40 miles southwest of Austin. As it happens, Judy was the 16-yearold door-keeper at the hot Dallas club, Mother Blues, when Ray Wylie Hubbard first met her decades ago, a fact recorded in the storytelling song of that name about the club. Being in love with her is like living in a thunderstorm, he has written, a line that transcends the pedestrian lyric to become poetry. His friendships or solid acquaintances have included not only Vaughn but Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Ringo Starr, Jerry Jeff Walker, Lucinda Williams (who guest spots on Tell the Devil) and Townes Van Zandt, among many other famous names. He doesnt seem overly taken with fame, though. Hes easy to talk to on the telephone, a listener who cares about ideas, a man who reads all the time. One of the two epigraphs in his memoir comes from the Greek playwright Aeschylus, writing more than 2,400 years ago. He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God. Theres nothing about Big Texas that precludes that kind of awareness and knowing; his started early. Mr. Hubbards father, a combat veteran of some of the bloodiest battles in Europe in World War II, became a teacher. The old man read him Poes The Raven out loud, Mr. Hubbard told me, and made him read Mark Twain and Hawthorne and Melville and Charles Dickens. A Big Texan as well, his dad once told Ray he would move the family to Canada if it took that to keep his son out of Vietnam. So Big Texas couldnt have picked a better place to meet Florida than The Buck, as owner Tommy Lee Cook calls his spread. Mr. Cook, whose own fine band will open for Ray Wylie Hubbard on Nov. 11, is something of a boot-wearing, hardriding Big himself, Texas or no Texas. c o g p i e o roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Well, his alleged big tent certainly is past tents. The GOP range these days goes from hard right to extremist cuckoo bird. Anybody who doesnt stand for exclusion and protecting the rich at all costs is dismissed as a RINO a Republican In Name Only. The Conscience of a Conservative has been gradually overwhelmed by the expedient of whatever-it-takes-to-win demagoguery. President Donald Trump is not really somebody who upset the party establishment apple cart; he is simply the one who seized on the rotten fruits of destructive politics. The big tent is no more. For proof, we need only look under the tattered big top that is the United States Capitol. There a few partisans, like Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona, who dont want to splatter themselves with scum anymore, so theyre pulling out: Theyve decided not to run for re-election. It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end, said Flake on the Senate floor. In this century, a new phrase has entered the language to describe the accommodation of a new and undesirable order, that phrase being the new normal. Unfortunately, soon-to-be-ex-Sen. Flake, it is the new normal or, more accurately, the accumulated normal after generations of bitter divisiveness. Also unfortunately, most of your fellow Republicans are either true believers in the hatefulness that is Trump or true believers in surviving a brutal primary and surviving Steve Bannon, who is hell-bent on making life miserable for anyone who resists the far Reich. So theyre toeing the line without giving a second thought to whether civilization will survive such incivility. At the White House, the president spoke about just that: I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am, he told reporters. You know, the fact is I think I really believe the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person. Right now, the real Trumps focus is on ravaging the tax code after failing, for the moment, at gutting health care in the United States. When it comes to taxes, the Republicans have always been in lockstep. They want to lower them, which is laudable until we note that what they really want is to lower them for their wealthy patrons. No matter whether they add to the crippling national debt; no matter whether they cut social services for the poor, disabled and elderly; and no matter whether they crush the few crumbs the middle class has left 401Ks, for instance, which allow for millions of people to eke out their retirement. The same approach targets the current deduction for state and local taxes. That hits every homeowner, because those state and local taxes include property taxes. Never mind, they shout; we need revenue to make the well-off weller-off. As for those who wont be able to afford their homes, dont worry. They can live in a big tent. And hope its not as phony as the Republican one. Bob Franken is an Emmy-award winning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Trump is the GOP MainstreamThe showdown between President Donald Trump and Sen. Jeff Flake turned out to be no contest. It wasnt Trump who was out of the GOP mainstream, but Flake. The Arizona senator supported Gang of Eight-style immigration reform, when immigration restriction is becoming a litmus-test issue in the party. He is a Goldwaterite, libertarianinflected conservative, when the market for libertarianism within the party is limited and diminishing by the day. He is frankly anti-Trump, when Trump owns the party. Many Republican voters are fully aware of the presidents flaws, but they dont want to hear about them constantly from Republican officeholders. Flakes criticisms of the president were honest, sincere and principled. If hes not a finalist for a Profile in Courage Award, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation is falling down on the job. They also were malpractice. The most likely outcome was to make it more difficult to defeat the Trumpite insurgent Kelli Ward in a primary next year, which one would have thought was a paramount political goal. Worse, Flake apparently rendered himself unelectable. Perhaps he considered speaking out more important than serving, a personal choice that no one can gainsay. But if the party isnt going to be overrun by Trump sycophants, it will need working politicians who are willing and able to better navigate these waters. There are a few, more sensible approaches in the Senate. Theres the Ben Sasse model speak your mind without fear or favor, knowing that you arent facing a tough primary in a matter of months and, if you decide to run again, it wont be until 2020, when the mood might have shifted. Theres the Mitch McConnell model hold your cards as close to the vest as possible and try to keep things from running completely off the rails so the partys congressional majorities arent destroyed. Theres the Lindsey Graham model criticize Trump when hes wrong and never abase yourself in his defense, but develop a relationship with the president to maximize your sway. But its a mistake to assume that Trump will somehow magically evaporate, leaving everything in the party as it was before he showed up. At this point, a Trump failure will take down the party, too, and may deepen and intensify the Republican civil war rather than end it. Its also a mistake to treat the Trump phenomenon as a fluke from which Republicans need learn no lessons. Establishment Republicans seem to believe Trumps rise says more about the inadequacies of their voters than about the inadequacies of their own, shopworn politics. The great advantage Trump has in Republican politics is that hes a Republican president, and partisanship is an awesome political force. So is the cult of personality that inheres in the presidency, augmented by Trumps celebrity. He has the right enemies, and his culture-war fights coupled with his traditional GOP legislative agenda offer something for everyone in the party, from the populists to the Chamber of Commerce. All of this means that, until further notice, he occupies the commanding heights of the GOP. Full-frontal assaults may be bold and brave, but they will likely be ineffectual, if not wholly counterproductive.

Come Make the G L In todays world, every civilian has a duty to support veterans BY CARYN HACKER BUECHEL AND TRISTA MEISTERNinety-eighty years ago, President Woodrow Wilson declared Nov. 11 to be the first commemoration of Armistice Day, the temporary cessation of war between the Allied nations and Germany. The momentous step that quieted the battlefields of the war to end all wars occurred on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. President Wilson proclaimed that the day shall be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the countrys service and with gratitude for the victory. In June 1926, the United States Congress added aspects to this commemorative day by officially recognizing the end of World War I and declaring Nov. 11 as a day to foster friendly relations with all other peoples. With parades, parlance and pensive prayer, this patriotic tradition has continued. This day, above all others, is set to honor those who chose to spend at least a portion of their lives defending and protecting our amazing nation. Sometimes it is easy to become complacent and comfortable in our beautiful world, says Naples resident Brigadier Gen. Edward Dyer. We forget that we have this world, in part, because our military protects us every day, here, around the globe and now even beyond that. Gen. Dyer, who has 29 years of active duty experience including combat in Iraq, suggests that a portion of this day should be spent not only celebrating the many freedoms that our service men and women have dedicated their lives to protect, but also considering the cost of this duty to our veterans themselves and their families. Florida is home to more than 1.5 million veterans, including 5,000 post-9/11 men and women who reside in the five counties of Southwest Florida. Veterans who saw active duty often struggle to live with memories that depict the horrendous carnage generally seen only on a battlefield, Gen. Dyer says. The eerie sound of automatic weapon-fire in the dark, the sight of friends and fellow soldiers going down, the bodies strewn along the ground and the heroism and self-sacrifice of so many are scenes most veterans will live with forever. For most soldiers, feelings of pride and accomplishment are as clear, strong and tangible as the fabric of their uniforms and the values they represent. For many, however, fibrous recurrent memories of the trauma of war and terrorism are woven into and negatively impact their daily lives. Often suffering from post-traumatic stress, many veterans relive or re-experience their memories during horrific nightmares or through their responses to triggers (noises, smells, sights). A flash of light or a loud and unexpected crackle in the night, the odor of overfilled plumbing or even the aroma of chipped beef on toast have the potential to take a soldier back to the moment of their greatest fears. Fifty years after the Vietnam War, this is still the case for Naples resident and former Army First Lieutenant Jim Redic. I turned 21 in the field, Lt. Redic recalls. Its amazing the things that linger and remind you of that time like insects, leeches and fire ants. You know gunfire has two sounds to it? he adds. Besides the sound of the rifle, every soldier knows you hear a loud crack as the bullet breaks the sound barrier. You only hear that sound if the bullet has gone past you. I still have nightmares of the war and the morgue. I am so grateful to be living in this country. Neapolitan Carlos Ruiz was a paratrooper in Afghanistan when he was 18. Now 25, he recalls having panic attacks, difficulty sleeping and feeling hypervigilant and suicidal after he returned DYER COURTESY PHOTOSJim Redic today, left, and in Vietnam, above.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAs we approach Veterans Day, Florida Weekly spoke to a few of those who served in the Korean War. Those aging warriors spoke of sacrifice and service. They shed a tear or two as they remembered fallen comrades. And they fret leaders on both sides may have learned nothing from the past. Staff Sergeant CARMELOTOMMYD DIPASQUALEThe people I met, the training I received and the friendships I made gave me a tremendous amount of spirit, education and discipline that has been a part of my life through today.Tommy D was a student at Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y., planning to become an accountant after he graduated. He completed his degree in 1951 and was immediately drafted into the Marine Corps that October. After training at Parris Island and Camp Pendleton, he was sent to Korea during the summer of 1952 as a staff sergeant. His battalion was sent north to the battle lines. Twelve Marines including him were plucked from his group and sent on a train heading for South Korea to a supply operation in a city formerly called Masan (it has since merged with a neighboring area named Changwn). It was a very strategic port for supplying the necessary items for the entire complement of Marines in Korea, Mr. DiPasquale says. I was assigned as a military policemen along with a combo of Marine Corps personnel. When the truce was signed, Mr. DiPasquale was sent home in July 1953 after the fighting ended. Although he wanted to go home and raise a family, he says his two years in the Marine Corps is something he has forever cherished. The people I met, the training I received and the friendships I made gave me a tremendous amount of spirit, education and discipline that has been a part of my life through today. He recalls feeling fortunate to be pulled out of his battalion to work in the supply depot; many of his fellow Marines were sent right into the thick of the war. So many Marines were killed and wounded they were wonderful people that I lived and trained with. Once back home, Mr. DiPasquale began a family and embarked on a career for the Pillsbury Company in Buffalo. He said his time in the military equipped him with a unique perspective of how fortunate Americans are to live where they do. All of the young people out there should really think about the values and fundamental reasons why our nation is so great and beautiful. The basic ingredients of discipline, love and working together to achieve a common goal, which is to benefit our freedom in this country and (freedom for) everyone else around the world these are the principles that should be cherished under any circumstance. Mr. DiPasquale believes the situation in Korea is very different now, with two leaders completely at odds. He hopes America can convince North Korea that we do not want a war to end all wars. Now 89, Mr. DiPasquale, is on this weeks Collier County Honor Flight taking World War II and Korean War veterans from Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials erected in their honor. (He was originally set to go on the Honor Flight that Hurricane Irma postponed in September.) As another Veterans Day draws near, he offers this: Everyone should support the fighting that so many veterans have lived and died from to support our way of life and to continue making it very meaningful. We should not lose sight of the fact that we have the best and most freedom of any country in the world.Corporal EVELYNVIEHBECKWe liked how the uniforms looked, and when youre 17 or 18 years old, (joining) seemed like an adventure.Evelyn Viehbeck, 83, joined the Marines in 1952 and was stationed stateside during the Korean War. She went to Parris Island for boot camp and traveled to Camp LeJeune in Jacksonville, N.C., to attend motor transport school. After that, Cpl. Viehbeck jumped around various bases, spending time in Terry Point, N.C., and finally Arlington, Va. She got people where they needed to go, driving military trucks chock full of officers around various bases, to events and parades and to and from train stations. It was an exciting time to be a woman in the military, she recalls. Although women started joining the ranks in the 1940s, by the 1950s, she says, It was starting to get popular. When recruiters came, it was exciting. We liked how the uniforms looked, and when youre 17 or 18 years old, (joining) seemed like an adventure. She and a few friends joined the Marines after their 18th birthdays. Two months into boot camp, a couple of her friends went home, unable to handle the rigors of military life. Ms. Viehbeck was part of an all-women platoon. She would go on to serve a full three-year term and was dischar ged in 1955. After leaving the Marine Corps, she went to school thanks to the G.I. Bill and began a 40-year career working in hospitals. The Pittsburgh native has been living in Naples for the last seven years and loves it. She recently went on all-women Collier County Honor Flight.Lieutenant Junior Grade SHIRLEYHAGERSONI think its better to know your enemy and what youre fighting for than to wonder when and if.Shirley Hagerson was a selfdescribed desk jockey during the Korean War. The Navy vet served from 1953 until mid-1956, serving as a cryptographer. LTJG (Lieutenant junior grade) Hagerson coded and decoded American intelligence between the Navys aircraft carriers. She says it was basic communications: requesting items or directions, sending intelligence across various distances. Id receive the messages in English and put them into code. At the beginning everything was coded by hand, she recalls, adding the crypto room was the only air-conditioned room on the base because they had to keep the equipment cool. She would eventually be transferred to an air station in Norfolk, Va., where she directed air traffic. I dont know anything about planes, but I sure know how to give orders! she laughs. She had many friends fly from the aircraft carriers off to Korea. Some of them came back. Some not, she says. rly ry s SALUTEFrom page 1 BERNADETTE LA PAGLIA / FLORIDA WEEKLYCarmelo Tommy D DiPasquale in Washington, D.C., during a Collier County Honor Flight trip.ROBBIE SPENCER / FLORIDA WEEKLY SALUTEWeYOU
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 NEWS A9When Ms. Hagerson joined, women in the service were classified under the WAVES acronym: Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. This was the norm in the early 1950s; women would receive administration or desk jobs with the purpose of taking the place of a man at that job so the man could go overseas to fight the war. By the time she retired, however, women had the option of upgrading their position to a regular officer of the Untied States Navy. She gladly accepted. I thought that was wonderful. The Navy was a great experience for a young woman. I received opportunities that I never wouldve otherwise, she says. She was promoted from LTJG to full lieutenant, but when she went in for her physical she learned she was pregnant, which in those days means she couldnt become a lieutenant. Now 86 years old, she looks back on her experience in the military fondly. She was originally just graduating from college and heading into a career as a physical education teacher. Thanks to the G.I. Bill, she went back to school and earned a masters degree and a Ph.D. She spent 39 years teaching fifth grade all over the world as her husband traveled for work. The couple spent time in California, Philadelphia and Singapore before she finished up her career on Marco Island. My husband was a professional fundraiser, so we moved around from one campaign to another. We enjoyed it The experience makes you outgoing and willing to find new friends. They met in the Navy and were married 48 years before he passed away. Of their three daughters, the oldest followed in her mothers footsteps, retiring as a captain after 20 years in the Navy. I was pleased (that she joined) because she was among the young Navy women who got many more chances and opportunities than we did, Ms. Hagerson says of her daughter. She became a guided missile officer. Im very proud of her. Ms. Hagerson has spent almost 30 years on Marco Island. Shes scheduled to go on an Honor Flight in October 2018. She recalls times being tense back during the war, but the current conflict seems scarier. Technology is a lot more sophisticated. Its going to be a battle of equipment and technology, not hand-to-hand battle like my Korea was. The fact that we dont know whether were at war or not and were waiting for that shoe to drop I think its better to know your enemy and what youre fighting than to wonder when and if.WALTMCCARTHY I got a diploma in one hand and my orders in the other.It wasnt until 1998, 27 years after his service, that Walt McCarthy was able to talk about the secret missions he flew in the Korean War. I was the flight commander of a squadron of RF80s, he said. These fighters were equipped with cameras, not guns, and flew reconnaissance missions over North Korea. During these top-secret missions, I felt we were breaking every treaty we ever made, he said. We met in his tidy La Posada apartment in Palm Beach Gardens, where he had a small display of war memorabilia. He talked of growing up in Short Beach, Conn., and going to Yale in 1947. Small town boy makes good, he said, laughing. There, he joined the brand-new Air Force ROTC. In 1950, the Korean thing started. So in June 1951, I got a diploma in one hand and my (military) orders in the other, he said. At 22, after marrying a high school sweetheart, he was sent to flight training in Texas, and from there to Kimpo, now Gimpo, South Korea, where fighters were stationed in the fall of 1953. He points to a photo of Cardinal Spellman on the base. Thats me getting communion from Cardinal Spellman. He flew training flights there with his squadron, training in F-86 Sabrejets. After a while, he said, he noticed a group of pilots who would go out and come back in a day or two. There were five or six guys who werent talking about what was going on. They were flying these recon missions and couldnt talk about it, he said. They were highly classified missions. In 1954, he was sent to Japan, and became part of that elite reconnaissance squadron, flying missions to photograph North Korean bases and posts. We were given targets, and flew in and flew out at 25,000 or 35,000 feet. Our squadron flew 30 missions total from Japan, just north of Nagoya. One particular one stands out: My wingman was flying that day, and I was taking the pictures. We flew back to Tokyo where we had a film lab, and dropped off the film, and stayed overnight as usual. The next morning we got a call to report to the photo shack. I was trembling afraid I didnt get the target they wanted or the film didnt print. Instead, he said, he was met by the man in charge of studying the negatives. He called us to the light table. It was the only time I ever saw my own film. Underneath me on two of the pictures were two Russian MiGs. A second-anda-half apart. It put the fear of God in me right there. We were violating their territory, he said, and could have been shot down. There were no weapons aboard each pilot carried a service revolver and a knife. In case we were shot down we could defend ourselves, he said. He flew other missions including one that earned him the distinguished flying cross. It was the last mission I flew. We had a strong headwind going into the mouth of the Yallow River. I had to turn in to photograph the midland. Missions accomplished, he returned to the U.S. and flew in the reserves in Connecticut and Florida for all types of training, for a total of 13 years in the military. Once I finished the service, I never flew again, he said. His career was with Pratt & Whitney, in computers. Back in the punch-card days, he says. He retired to Florida, and remarried after his first wife died. I had 25 great years with her, before her death this summer, he said. He is concerned about the tensions with North Korea today. I have great worries about the lack of formal negotiations, he said. I would hate to be over there now knowing I was a lot closer to those nuclear weapons. War is bad enough without annihilation weapons like that. Until 2004, he attended reunions of fighter jet pilots, and his squad of recon pilots. This coming April will be the last reunion for the fighter pilots. I dont know that many of them. He choked back tears, explaining why his squad wont meet: Theres not enough of us left.

Secure Memory Care Center features an enclosed outdoor courtyard. from his tour of duty. A movie trailer about war triggered flashbacks, hallucinations and violent behavior. He was initially incarcerated and then placed in the Collier County Veterans Treatment Court Program at David Lawrence Center, where he received specialized mental health counseling, case management and mentorship. We, veterans, chose to fight for and defend our country because of our love and commitment to the American people. Mr. Ruiz says. Even though some of us get lost in the realities of PTSD, our sense of service and duty never goes away. Our veterans need our help and support now. Scott Burgess, CEO at DLC, knows a veterans experiences at war can leave not only physical scars but deep emotional scars as well. And though not always visible on the surface, these psychological scars are just as, if not more, life-threatening, he says. A veteran and family care program called Home Base reports that fewer than 50 percent of post-9/11 veterans seek help for an invisible wound of war. Offering a free warrior health and fitness program in collaboration with Florida Gulf Coast University and the Greater Naples YMCA (and a more intensive clinical program in Boston) Home Base has teamed with the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital to offer free assistance for veterans and their families. Sarah Cox was 21 when she joined the Air Force. The former senior airman, who now serves as secretary of the Collier County Veterans Council, spent four years deployed in 16 different countries. Home Base helped her learn how to deal with PTSD triggers. Home Base taught me how to recognize when I was being hyper-vigilant unnecessarily, how to refocus and how to avoid the events that could be a trigger for me, she says. The influx of television shows and movies that capture historic war memoirs and heroic missions is on the rise. These shows will certainly keep us informed and bring patriotism to the forefront; however, they might also trigger episodes of PTSD in some of our nations veterans. For Ms. Cox, the looped video/audio feed of the recent shooting in Las Vegas did just that, as every veteran who saw combat knows the indistinguishable sound of automatic weapon fire. When I heard the video for the first time, I knew immediately that it was automatic fire from an American gun, Ms. Cox says. Soldiers are trained to run toward it, and thats what I wanted to do. Yes, it was triggering. I immediately wanted to be there to help, (but) it was also anxiety-producing. Those in the military solemnly swore to support and protect our country against all enemies and at all costs. Veterans Day gives civilians the opportunity to show respect, appreciation and honor to our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coastguardsmen. This Veterans Day we Americans need to do a little bit more, Gen. Dyer suggests. We need to understand the struggles military service often brings. Be sensitive and aware of what our veterans are experiencing. Sometimes, its a price of service. Their mission is complete. Ours has just begun. Caryn Hacker-Bueche is a freelance writer, author and retired psychotherapist, and Trista Meister is a marketing and communications consultant specializing in the health-care, social services and not-for-profit industries. Both are daughters of veterans. Ms. Hacker-Buechel is former board member with DLC and the David Lawrence Foundation. Ms. Meister served as the communications director for DLC for 15 years and currently provides consulting services to the Southwest Florida-based center for mental health and addiction recovery treatment.

VETERANS DAY EVENTSHere are some of the ceremonies and events coming up in honor of Veterans Day: The Veterans Day ceremony at the Dr. Peter Thomas Veterans Services Center at Hodges University starts at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10. All are welcome. The 30-minute ceremony will include the Gulf Coast High School JROTC, a flag folding ceremony by two Hodges student veterans and remarks by guest speaker U.S. Army veteran Dale Mullin, founder and president of Wounded Warriors of Collier County. In the past six years, Mr. Mullins organization has raised more than $725,000 for veterans. Mr. Mullin has also provided scholarship support to more than 20 Hodges student veterans. A reception with cake and refreshments will follow the program in the John White Community Room on the Naples campus at 2647 Professional Way. For more information, call 938-7833 or send an email to veteransservices@ hodges.edu. A softball team made up of soldiers who lost limbs and/or suffered serious injuries in combat will compete against one of the top senior teams in the country at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, at North Collier Regional Park. Admission is free, and all are welcome. The Louisville Slugger Warriors are a highly decorated national slow pitch tournament team featuring U.S. military veterans and active duty personnel. Coached by former MLB player and now analyst/broadcaster John Kruk, the Warriors will play Team Florida, one of the top teams for 60-year-olds in the country, during the Senior Softball USA Winter Nationals being held in Naples and Fort Myers. A number of these inspiring players have lost limbs, said Terry Hennessy, CEO of SSUSA. But anyone watching them run, field, throw and hit soon forget they suffered serious wounds and are simply amazed at their athleticism. Mr. Hennessy said SSUSA has been proud to partner with David Van Sleet and his teams for a number of years. The idea for the Louisville Slugger Warriors began with Mr. Van Sleets idea of combining his passion for veterans, prosthetics and softball. That idea came to fruition with the birth of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. A U.S. Army veteran who served during the Vietnam War era, Mr. Van Sleet worked for the Department of Veteran Affairs in the field of prosthetics for more than 30 years and served as general manager, head coach and CEO of WWAST for several years before retiring and becoming general manager of the Warriors. Since being adopted by Louisville Slugger, the Warriors talent level has been elevated to the next level, Mr. Van Sleet said. The Warriors are now a national D-level slow pitch tournament team, testing their athleticism against teams of able-bodied players. Many of these premier players are testing the limits of prosthetic advancement that is available to extremely active amputees, he said. The Collier County Veterans Council hosts its traditional Veterans Day Ceremony starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Veterans Memorial in Cambier Park. Naples Mayor Bill Barnett will be the guest speaker. All are welcome.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONSGood-natured weirdosThree teenagers from Rahway, N.J., who call themselves the Rahway Bushmen, have been discouraged from their signature prank: dressing up as bushes and popping up in Rahway River Park to say Hi! to unsuspecting passersby. www.NJ.com reported in October that the Union County Police Department warned the Bushmen that they would be arrested if caught in action. The high school students started by jumping out to scare people but decided to soften their approach with a gentler greeting. We were trying to be harmless, one of the Bushmen said. Its more or less an idea to try to make people smile. But Union County Public Information Officer (and fun sucker) Sebastian DElia deadpanned: Its great until the first person falls and sues the county. Or puts an eye out.Animal troublemakers Pilots were warned of low sealings at Wiley Post-Will Rogers Memorial Airport in Utqiagvik, Alaska, on Oct. 23 because of an obstruction on the runway: a 450-pound bearded seal. Meadow Bailey of the Alaska Department of Transportation told KTVA-TV that the city, also known as Barrow, was hit by heavy storms that day, and airport staff discovered the seal while clearing the runway. However, staff are not authorized to handle marine animals, so North Slope Animal Control stepped in, using a sled to remove the seal. Bailey said animals such as musk ox, caribou and polar bears are common on the runway, but the seal was a first. About two dozen car owners in the Nob Hill neighborhood of Snellville, Ga., were perturbed in late October by what they thought was vandalism: Their cars side mirrors were being shattered, even in broad daylight. Finally, according to WSB-TV, one resident caught the real perpetrator: a pileated woodpecker who apparently believes his reflection in the mirrors is a rival. Because pileated woodpeckers are a protected species, neighbors had to get creative with their solution. They are now placing plastic bags over their side mirrors while the cars are parked.Undignified deathNathan William Parris, 72, met his unfortunate end when a cow he was trying to move turned against him at his farm in Floyd County, Ga., on Oct. 25. Parris was pinned against a fence by the recalcitrant cow, reported the Rome News-Tribune, which caused him severe chest trauma. First responders tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the Redmond Regional Medical Center emergency room.Ironies Workers at a Carls Jr. in Santa Rosa, California, were busy filling an order for 165 Super Star burgers for first responders to the Fountaingrove area wildfires on Oct. 26 when a grease fire broke out in the restaurant. The fire started in the char broiler and then jumped to the exhaust system. Franchise co-owner Greg Funkhouser told The Press-Democrat the building was completely torn up We made it through the big one, only to get taken out by this. When the person who placed the order arrived to pick it up, he saw six Santa Rosa Fire Department trucks in the parking lot and left, so Mr. Funkhouser handed out free burgers to anyone around. A Henrietta, N.Y., gifts and oddities store earned its name on Oct. 24 when a garbage truck rolled between two gas pumps and across a road to crash into the 200-year-old building where the store had opened in June. Jeri Flack, owner of A Beautiful Mess, told WHAM-TV that her building is wrecked in the front so bad that I cant open back up. Witnesses say the truck driver pulled into a spot at a Sunoco station across the street and got out to use the restroom. Thats when the truck rolled away and barreled into the business. Sunoco employee T.J. Rauber said, I see a lot of crazy stuff up here, but I aint never seen nothing like that.Least-competent criminalBurglary suspect and career criminal Shane Paul Owen, 46, of South Salt Lake, Utah, was on the run from police on Oct. 24 when he dashed into a vacant church. A Salt Lake City SWAT team held a standoff at the church for more than six hours until Mr. Owen called 911 to say that he was locked in the churchs boiler room and couldnt get out. Can you hurry? he asked the dispatcher. I need to talk to them first so they dont ... shoot me, he pleaded. The Desert News reported Mr. Owen was booked on outstanding warrants for retaliation against a witness, drug distribution and identity fraud.

Call the recorded phone number to hear how to benefit.back to residents who love the food here. Naples residents are familiar with this event, which had a successful run last summer and the previous fall. Now Lee County residents get a taste, too. Were just moving into Lee, says Mr. Clarke, adding that they expect to expand the number of Lee County participants in subsequent years. While the Lee County contingent is smaller than that of Naples, its primarily because this is the first time Lee County restaurants are participating and the concept takes time to gain awareness and acceptance. The other issue, Mr. Clarke says, is that Hurricane Irma took a bite out of many establishments business this year and the disruption rendered them unable to participate this close to the tourist season. Collier County residents will be able to choose from about 45 establishments, from Ario to Zen Asian Bistro, with a host of options in between. The list includes higher end spots such as Bleu Provence, Bha! Bha! A Persian Bistro, Sea Salt and Veranda E along with more casual ones such as Catch 41 Bar n Grill, Tommy Bahama, Moura Bistro and The Local. In Bonita, DeRomos, Roys, South Fork Grille and The Fish House will offer special menus. And farther north, diners can explore Point 57, La Corte Bistro and Gather in Cape Coral, the Melting Pot, the Standard, Kings Kitchen and Izzys Fish House in Fort Myers and Thistle Lodge on Sanibel. The way it works is that each restaurant creates a three-course, prix-fixe menu. Most are priced at $25 to $35, although some establishments offer additional menus priced slightly higher. Tax, gratuity and beverages are not included. Each menu includes at least a couple of choices per course. The idea is that diners have an opportunity to try places they havent been to before without investing a lot of money. It makes it very affordable to try someplace new, says Mr. Clarke. Thats the beauty of Restaurant Week. You can try three courses or, in some cases four or five courses, depending on the restaurant. Diners have a wide range of choices, from Italian, such as LaMottas in Fort Myers, Hawaiian fusion at Roys in Bonita Springs and Indian at 21 Spices by Chef Asif in Naples. While some chain restaurants participate, the majority are independents that dont have the advertising budgets of the big guys and so might not be on everyones radar. Most of the restaurants go all out on these menus, Mr. Feliciano says, in an effort to impress new customers. We are hoping Restaurant Week opens peoples minds to new places they normally wouldnt go to, he says. Restaurants pay $1,250 to participate, a fee that helps cover advertising, participation in the First Bite event, promotional costs and other expenses, the organizers say. The concept is one thats been successful and popular in Miami, Sarasota, Philadelphia and New York. December in Southwest Florida is a great time for it because the restaurant business can be relatively slow after Thanksgiving when people start preparing for Christmas and Chanukah and might be busy shopping and perhaps trying to save money. This allows them an inexpensive way to enjoy a meal out and gives them a chance to relax a bit instead of having to cook during that hectic period. An early bonus is that food lovers get to try a preview of about 35 of the participating restaurants at the aptly named preview event, First Bite, which takes place from 5-9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15 at Mercedes-Benz of Bonita Springs. First Bite is a benefit that will raise money for Gulf Coast Humane Society and Humane Society Naples. Restaurants will serve small samples of the dishes they will serve during Restaurant Week and will also announce the menus they will offer during the twoweek event. In addition to food, there will be wine, craft beers, music and a silent auction. For more information about First Bite, visit www.swflfirstbite.com.

But the automaker has made sure that the new Civic lets us all know that being affordable doesnt have to mean feeling cheap. Now, the ultra-hot Si version has become the new standard for all other spicy compacts. Both the coupe and sedan profiles follow the classically attractive long hood, short rear styling. The front borrows its curves from the 2017 Honda Accord, and it finishes with taillights that wrap around the trunk lid for one of the most attractive and original rear ends. The result is a car that looks mature and sporty a feat envied by plenty of other carmakers. The Si version adds more mean darkness to the appearance. It includes larger bumpers with black honeycomb patterns, and the usual strip of brightwork that runs from headlight to headlight is now a slick piano black. The missing chrome from the front finds a new home on the center-exit rear exhaust. It draws attention to this wide trapezoidal tip that feels inspired by the Porsche Boxster. The Civic Si coupe also receives a sizable rear spoiler exclusive to the two-door. Its too small for the teenage fanboys, and too ostentatious for the retirees. Everyone else in-between probably wont mind this extra tail too much. Inside, the sporty upgrades continue with special Si bucket seats. Honda touts its added lateral support to hug the driver on tight roads, but thankfully, this doesnt negate commuter comfort. A few weeks ago, we were a bit sad to announce the death of the Honda Accord coupe for 2018. The rear seat in the Civic actually offers a little more legroom (but less headroom.) So, the two-door Accord wont be missed as much as we first thought. The interior comes in black cloth only, and in fact, there are no options inside the Civic Si at all. That may seem odd, but limiting choices builds terrific economies of scale. The coupe and sedan can both be taken home for $24,975. Its loaded with features like dual zone climate control, premium HD stereo, sunroof, and a seven-inch touch screen infotainment system. The LaneWatch safety feature that utilizes a right-side camera to cleverly eliminate the blind spot is especially nice to have. Also, the only transmission available is a six-speed manual. That will scare some people away from the Civic Si, and it also serves as a great reminder that this is a true drivers car. The power plant is a marvel of engineering where 205 horsepower is pumped out of 1.5-liters. Thank the turbocharger for this mighty power out of this mini motor. It works in true harmony with the telepathically accurate six-speed to deliver the kind of feeling thats usually found in premium German cars. More than just the motor, there has been a lot thought given to the full setup. The Si receives an adaptive damper suspension, stabilizer bars front and rear, stiffer springs, bigger brakes, electronically variable steering and a throaty sport exhaust. Plus, the limited slip front end has been engineered to nearly eliminate torque steer, and it makes drivers forget this is a front-wheel drive machine. While the options list is quite short, Honda offers HPT (High Performance Tires) for a $200 charge. This is worthwhile upgrade in warm climates like Florida where we dont need snow tires. The sticky set of Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber would cost three times as much to purchase from a store, and It makes the Civic Si especially fun to throw around the corners. For people who need a daily driver, the sports suspension is surprisingly easy to live with every day. Plus, when this Civic is just an interstate commuter and not a back roads bruiser, theres potential to get over 40 mpg. That kind of economy should help with the sting of having to fill up with premium fuel. Honda has really scored a coup with the Civic Si. The company priced it like a well-equipped Hyundai Elantra GT. It not only offers more fun and value than that car, but also it can outshine higher-priced competitors like the Volkswagen Jetta GLI and Subaru WRX. Its not the perfect machine for every sporty compact driver, but now the Honda Civic Si is the standard that all others will have to beat out for your garage space. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Purchasing a used vehicle? Know the signs of flood damage Purchasing a used vehicle and later learning it has been flood damaged can be very problematic and lead to costly issues down the road. Worst yet, these vehicles can be unhealthy to occupy because of mold and bacteria growing in the carpet and ventilation system. The nonprofit Care Care Council urges those considering the purchase of a used vehicle to check for signs of water intrusion or contamination. Here are some tips: Take the sniff test. Close all the windows and doors and let the car sit. Then crack open a door and sniff. Mildew and mold have very distinctive smells, and it doesnt take long for that smell to present itself. Try the touch test. Get some paper towels and press them against the low spots in the carpet. The paper towels will draw the moisture out and reveal if the carpet is wet under the surface. If the paper towel becomes wet it could mean water has gotten into the car. Investigate the interior. Look under the seats and dash for corrosion and rust. Exposed metal that is untreated and rusted as well as mud and debris in places it does not belong, are signs of water infiltration. Inspect the instrument panel. Turn on the key and perform a bulb test. Make sure every bulb lights up and has no active faults. Take it to a professional. A professional technician can raise the car and look underneath to see if there is any mud, sticks or rocks in the suspension as well as check the oil in the differentials to make sure they contain no water. Taking these steps can help you identify any issues and give you piece of mind. To learn more, visit www.carcare.org.

In fact, mammograms show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Mammograms can also prevent the need for extensive treatment for advanced cancers and improve chances of breast conservation. Walk-ins will be accommodated, but appointments are recommended and can be made by calling 936-4068. An order/prescription is not required for a screening mammogram, but you must have a physician to receive your results. For more information, visit www. radiologyregional.com. Dont shoot the dogA lesson in reinforcing positive behavior BY SAM SEWELLWhen I was a youngster I spent a good deal of my summer vacations on my grandparents farm. The summer after completing my undergraduate work, I was eager to visit the country homestead once again. When I arrived, I discovered that there was a family crisis in progress. Grandpas dog and hunting partner, Shep, had taken on a bad habit in his old age. Shep had begun breaking into the chicken coop and eating eggs. Back then the label egg-sucking dog was one of the worst things that could be said of someone in northern Iowa. To our ears it was a profanity vulgar enough to make women gasp and could easily start a fight if hurled at another person in anger. Iowa farmers knew there was only one thing to be done with an eggsucking dog: You had to shoot it, and the sooner the better. But Shep and Grandpa were old friends. I had been with them many times as we flushed up pheasants from Grandpas cornfields after the harvest. Grandpa sure didnt want to shoot Shep, but he knew it needed to be done. Once dogs start raiding a chicken coop there is no way to cure them. No matter how many times you beat the dog and no matter how many times you patched the latest hole they dug under the wall into the chicken coop, they doggedly (forgive the pun) keep sticking their noses under hens and stealing eggs. The egg money was Grandmas private income, so you can imagine how she felt about the problem. With the inexperienced confidence of youth and a brand new expertise in the behavioral sciences, I told Grandpa I thought I could cure an egg-sucking dog. After all, I had read all about B.F. Skinners work with dogs and operant conditioning. I wanted to at least have a chance to save Sheps life and save Grandpa the seemingly inevitable heartbreaking chore. The theory is simple: One observes the subject animal, in this case Shep, doing something the correct way and then reinforces the desired behavior. The reinforcement cycle starts with some action on the part of the trainee, Shep (in Skinners language, the operant). Operant conditioning is therefore always dependent upon behavior. So, we have: 1. Dog does something favorable (operant behavior). 2. Dog gets food (positive reinforcement). I knew that these farmers almost always applied negative stimulus after the behavior had become a habit, thus reinforcing the very behavior they were attempting to eliminate. Applying negative stimulus to an already established negative pattern of behavior reinforces behavior you dont want. So maybe a different method would work. There was considerable pressure to accomplish what I had told Grandpa I could do. That pressure amplified when he and I went into town and Grandpa told the farmers who gathered at the coffee shop across from the hardware store, My grandson, the psychologist, is going to cure Shep so I dont need to shoot him. You can imagine the skeptical attitude of Iowa farmers being told that there was a cure for egg-sucking dogs. By this time it was too late to tell Grandpa that I had never actually tested this theory and that I wasnt sure it would really work. When I had confidently and foolishly announced to Grandpa that I could cure Shep, I didnt even have a plan ready. So I began to think: How could I get Shep to not go into the chicken coop so that I could then reinforce the behavior I wanted? The next morning I broke open two fresh eggs and put them in Sheps bowl right at the door to the chicken coop. Sometimes in order to begin changing behavior, you need to do something good for the bad dog. Shep came along and noticed the eggs. I can imagine his dog brain doing this self-talk: Eggs. Right here. I dont even need to eat the shells. And I dont have to put up with those hens pecking at the top of my head. This is a good thing. He quickly lapped up the eggs and sauntered off for his nap. The following morning I did the same thing. I put the eggs a few feet away from the chicken coop toward the back porch of the farmhouse, where Grandma usually fed Shep. The next day I again moved the bowl closer to the house and added some dog food to the eggs. Every day I moved the bowl closer to the porch, mixing more dog food and fewer eggs. By the time the bowl reached the porch, it was all dog food and no eggs. Shep had again become accustomed to looking for his food at the back porch of the house. He never again went into the chicken coop. This process is called incremental desensitization. Please remember this: If you reinforce behavior that moves you toward a desired goal and ignore the old behavior, you will change. Looking backward will keep you backward. Looking forward will move you forward. Philosopher, clergyman, psychotherapist, scientist, humorist and raconteur, Dr. Sam Sewell is a member of the Southwest Florida chapter of Mensa.

Is surgery or chemotherapy the right answer? Or are there other factors involved that could affect the decision you make regarding treatment for your pet? A pets age, our finances and the success rate of treatment options all play into the decisions we make about caring for our pets. The good news is that there are no wrong answers. Whatever decision you make, there are options for care. Whether you are considering treatment or palliative care for your pets cancer, ask the oncologist to lay out the pros and cons. Here are some questions to ask: How is this type of cancer treated? How long will my pet live with and without treatment? How will my pets age and current health status affect the success of treatment? Will my pet experience any side effects of treatment? Can side effects be managed? Will a special diet help? How much will treatment or palliative care cost? Are there any clinical trials that might benefit my pet? The answers can help you make the best decision for your dog, cat or other pet. Depending on the type of cancer and how aggressively you want to fight it, options include surgery, metronomic therapy continuous low doses of different anticancer drugs radiation, and integrative therapies, such as medicinal mushrooms or cold laser. Ensuring that pets are able to breathe comfortably is also important. Each situation is different, but the most important factor is keeping pets comfortable, says veterinary oncologist Alice Villalobos. Even if they have a really nasty cancer, were able to sometimes control or slow it down or stabilize it with an anti-angiogenesis protocol, she says. Multimodal pain relief is a mainstay of cancer care. Generally, a single medication isnt enough to address pain in cancer patients. Cancer pain travels along multiple pathways in the body. Using different types of medications that work in different ways helps to make pain control more effective. Dr. Villalobos likes to use what she calls the GAT protocol: gabapentin, amantadine and either tramadol or trazadone. Each works in a different way, and together they manage the different types of pain. Some dogs with cancer are prescribed steroids such as prednisone or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for pain. They can benefit from medications such as Pepcid that protect the gastrointestinal tract from ulceration or other damage associated with use of steroids and NSAIDs. Oxygen therapy can help pets breathe easier. That doesnt necessarily mean that a dog or cat must spend time in an oxygen cage at the veterinary hospital, which can be expensive. Oxygen generators can be purchased online through outlets such as Craigslist, for instance, and used at home. Timing of medication is important. Pets on prednisone may experience panting as a side effect, especially at night. Giving the drug in the morning instead of evening can make a difference, Dr. Villalobos says. Panting can also be a sign of pain. How do you know if your pet is panting because hes in pain or as a side effect of the drug hes taking? The answer may depend on the type of cancer your pet has, so its important to talk to your veterinarian. For instance, Dr. Villalobos says, lymphoma usually isnt painful, so in that case, the panting is likely caused by the drug, not the disease. Most important, keep your pets quality of life paramount. We really always try to make sure the patient has got more good days than bad days, Dr. Villalobos says.

Bring on the sentimental tears during the ceremony, the sparkle of the reception, the dancing (Ill happily get up and do the Electric Slide, even though I can never remember the steps). Yes, Im that overly enthusiastic wedding guest who kicks off her shoes, lets her hair down, does shots with the groomsmen and runs around taking videos on Facebook. I love the father/daughter dance, the best mans toast, the cutting of the cake. And despite the fact that Im happily married, I want in on the chance to catch the bouquet (hey, if I caught it, we could renew our vows). All that said, there are some nuptials on the horizon that have me a tiny bit apprehensive. My husbands youngest daughter is tying the knot in a couple of months and both of Todds ex-partners will be in attendance. One, of course, is the mother of the bride, and the other is his first wife. These days, its more normal than ever for current spouses and exes to put aside past grievances for the sake of children and grandchildren. In fact, my familys Christmas is a veritable parade of step-people. My stepsister (my fathers wifes daughter) hosts dinner at her and my step-brother-in-laws house. In attendance are my step-brother-in-laws mother and her husband, as well as his father and his wife. Then theres me along with my Dad and stepmother, as well as my step-grandmother and step-nieces. The only person at Christmas dinner that I actually share any DNA with is Dad. But its OK. Were one big happy group at the Step Family Christmas. Every year my stepsisters step-father-in-law raves over her stepmother-in-laws amazing green bean casserole (its really good), and everyone exchanges gifts with everyone else. So the fact that my husbands first two exes happen to be BFFs shouldnt faze me much. I have a close girlfriend whos in the midst of co-planning her stepdaughters wedding with her husbands first wife and everyone is getting along like gangbusters. Her stepdaughter often proudly attests to having two moms. Ive noticed that younger people dont use the step word as much as my generation seems to. My son refers to his stepbrother (my ex-husbands wifes son) simply as his brother. When I almost automatically corrected him recently, I bit my tongue. Why the labels? Why would we categorize family members in ways like step, half or real? My husbands 25-year-old daughter clearly isnt into labels. At her wedding, shell have her stepmother (me) and a bunch of people I havent met yet: two stepfathers, several stepsiblings, lots of halves and, of course, my husbands two exes. Its a whole new wedding world out there one where the rules of Emily Post and even the advice of Miss Manners dont really work for so many of us with blended families. My fondest hope is that I shrink a couple of sizes (Facebook stalking has proved that Todds exes are gorgeous, tall and slender), find the perfect stepmother-of-the-bride dress, and that we all steps, halves, exes and others end up on the dance floor, barefoot and doing the Electric Slide like one big happy stepfamily or more simply, family. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. An Investing EducationFor best results when investing, youll need to keep learning, and a great way to do so is by reading highly regarded books on investing and the business world. Here are some to consider:One Up On Wall Street by Peter Lynch (Simon & Schuster, $17). This is one of the most engaging investment books, and has been a gateway for many successful investors over several decades. Advocating buying great companies for the long term, Lynch believes that any normal person using the customary 3 percent of the brain can pick stocks just as well [as], if not better [than,] the average Wall Street analyst.The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham (Collins Business, $23). This is a heavier read, but well worth it. Warren Buffett says its by far the best book about investing ever written, and few value-oriented investors would disagree. Grahams goal is to lay out a positive program for common-stock investment, which he does in this comprehensive text. Chapter 20, titled Margin of Safety as the Central Concept of Investment, is especially valuable.You Can Be a Stock Market Genius by Joel Greenblatt (Touchstone, $17). Greenblatt makes a complex subject, specialsituations investing, accessible to novice investors. Like Lynch and The Motley Fool, he believes ordinary investors have the power to beat the pants off the socalled market experts.Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist by Roger Lowenstein (Random House, $19). There are gobs of books about Warren Buffett, and many people think this biography of him is the best.

This is our first major book, newly updated and revised. It explains how to evaluate stocks and build a portfolio. Well offer a few more great investing books next week. The Whole StoryAt the age of 25 or 26, prior to buying a house and with the hopes of children on the horizon, I wanted to have life insurance. I ended up with a $100,000 whole life policy. Two big advantages were that it would pay interest, with a guaranteed minimum return. A couple of years later, though, I noticed that the cash value had not built up very much. Reading the fine print Id glossed over initially, I found many troubling details. For example, much of the first few years gains went to the agent as a commission. I realized I would have been better off with a term policy. Also, at the time, I wasnt maxing out my 401(k) to get the full match. Now that would have been a better investment. Overall, I learned that a taxfree or tax-deferred crappy investment is still a crappy investment. T.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: Term life insurance is better than whole life insurance for many people, because its less costly and is in effect only when you need it. Whole policies are more complicated, as theyre part insurance, part investment. You can often do better just buying the term insurance you need and investing on your own. Also, note that you may not need any life insurance if youre young, childless and house-less. Life insurance is mainly for when anyone depends on you financially. A Blue Chip PowerhouseIf youre looking for a solid stock that offers dividends and the prospect of growth, consider the countrys largest telecommunications company, AT&T (NYSE: T). Because its main business produces a reliable stream of income, the companys earnings (and its stock price) tend to be significantly less volatile than average. AT&T has a stellar track record of returning value to shareholders, has a sturdy business with significant growth opportunities ahead, and has recently been appealingly priced.Despite challenges from lower-priced competitors, premium wireless phone service is a proven draw, and AT&Ts advantage over budget-priced offerings will probably become more pronounced when 5G mobile technology rolls out and spreads. AT&T is also in position to be a leading service provider for connected cars and other Internet of Things applications, and its pending acquisition of Time Warner should turn it into a content powerhouse opening up a range of bundling opportunities.AT&Ts dividend payout recently yielded 5.8 percent, and with its ample free cash flow, the company is poised to continue increasing its payout regularly. Indeed, its dividend history features 33 years of annual increases that its surely keen to maintain. With a hefty dividend, a relatively low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and a leadership position in the wireless world, AT&T stands out as a promising choice for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool has recommended Time Warner.) I trace my roots back to 1831 and C yrus M cCormicks invention of the mechanical reaper. The company he formed joined with others in 1902 to become International Harvester. I built my first school bus in 1922, supplied trucks for the building of the Hoover Dam, and made torpedo parts, bulldozers, trucks, cannon shells and tanks (among other things) during World War II. In 1986 I took on a new name and have been focused on producing commercial and military trucks, buses and diesel engines. Today, based in Lisle, Illinois, I rake in about $8 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Navistar) The ABCs of VCsQWhat are venture capitalists? F. M., DetroitAVenture capitalists invest their pooled money in fledgling companies, helping them get off the ground. Some VC companies specialize in certain industries or areas, such as computer-related technology or biotechnology. Young companies will often get early funding from venture capitalists well before they sell shares of stock on the open market via an initial public offering (IPO). The VC company will typically offer guidance as well as money, usually in exchange for a partial ownership stake in the company. The hope is that once the company grows to a certain point, it will go public and the venture capitalists can cash out, making a tidy profit.

L.K., Greenwood, South CarolinaADo that and youll be selling low instead of buying low and selling high. A better strategy is to decide how much of your assets you want to keep in bonds. Young people might want to be close to 100 percent in stocks, while those near or in retirement might want to move a portion of their nest egg into bonds. Stick with your desired allocation until you have a good reason to change it. Diversification can be beneficial, as when one asset category loses ground, the other might offset the loss but that doesnt always happen. Also, over the long run, healthy fallen stocks tend to recover. Want more information about stocks?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 BUSINESS A31What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? It is a very exciting time to be in health care! The advancements in preventing, diagnosing and treating health conditions continues to improve at a rapid pace. Despite all the challenges we hear about in Washington, we still have the best health care and the best doctors in the world. Of the many changes on the horizon in the industry, the one that is most significant may be the change from a volume-based payment system to a value-based approach. The traditional way that hospitals and doctors received payment was based on the amount and complexity of services provided (volume based). Over the past few years, we have begun to see the shift in payments being based on quality, patient experience and efficiency in controlling costs (value). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has set a goal that 90 percent of Medicare payments will be value based by 2018. To help push this along, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) in 2015 with overwhelming bipartisan support. (98-2 in the Senate!) MACRA will fundamentally change the way Medicare pays hospitals and doctors by rewarding for quality and participation in value based payment models, and financially penalizing hospitals and doctors that do not move in this direction. One example of the shift to value-based care today is the introduction of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). Medicare introduced this program in 2012 as a way to encourage health care providers to focus on quality, patient experience, and efficient use of health care costs. For ACOs that demonstrate success in these areas, CMS shares savings generated with the providers. Millennium has been a part of the ACO program since 2013 and invested in our care teams to help manage the complete health needs of our patients. With this focus on the patient, Millennium has achieved national recognition as one of the top five ACOs in the country!Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Our incredible physicians, advanced providers and health care team. The foundation of Millennium is a physician based organization focused improving the health of our patients. We strive for a culture of excellence. Our focus on the patient engagement. We understand that our patients have a choice in choosing their health care provider. We are very focused on ensuring that our patients have the best experience from the time they make an appointment, to the office or hospital visit, to the ongoing care management to support their health and wellness. Our ability to connect our patients to the appropriate health care setting whether it be in our offices, other providers in the community, hospitals, home health, skilled nursing facilities, etc. As the primary care physicians for over 200,000 patients in our community, we welcome the incredible responsibility of managing the comprehensive health care needs of our patients.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Many times, the health care industry makes it so difficult on the patients. Going to see the doctor may not be very convenient and often can be an anxious time for patients, family members, and care givers. Waiting for an appointment or a test result only adds to the anxiety. With technology, we have seen tremendous improvements in the banking, travel, shopping and other industries. Consumers are used to doing research on the internet at all hours and getting immediate responses. Although making some progress, health care in general has not moved near as fast as other service industries. At Millennium, we are very focused on making health care easier for our patients. As patients become more involved in their health care choices (like they have done with banking, travel and shopping), there will also be the opportunity to become more responsible for key decisions that can improve the quality and cost of their health care. For example, using smartphones to respond to health reminders (e.g., taking prescription medications, ensuring to get their annual wellness visit), fitness programs, nutritional needs, will lead to healthier outcomes, better management of chronic diseases, fewer visits to hospitals and emergency rooms and lower costs to the health care system. What will you base your success on for 2018?As the health care system continues the transformation from a payment system based to volume to that of value, our success will largely be measured on the quality of the care we deliver, which includes patient experience, and our ability to ensure that the patient receives the care in the best possible setting. How are you using technology to improve your business? Technology is becoming a large part of health care. Its not just the state-of-the-art machines within the offices or our Imaging Centers. Its technology that impacts and changes the lives of our patients. Within the last decade all health care systems and physician practices were required to implement an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. In the last few years, we have seen where an online Patient Portal has taken the forefront. It allows for patients to manage their health information, message their Providers, refill prescriptions and view lab or test results. It provides 24/7 access to your provider and were seeing that once our patients access it that they truly do like the convenience it brings. Within the last year, Millennium has launched innovative initiatives to assist our patients and providers in their care including: Skip the Line Our Skip-The-Line feature allows patients to easily get an appointment at one of our Walk-in Medical Centers. Patients can visit our website, see current wait times and sign up for a time that is convenient for them. The technology will send a text when it is time for the patient to arrive, which cuts down on the wait times for patients. We know if our patients need to visit a walk-in that they arent feeling well and need to see a doctor quickly. Our job is to make it easier for them to get to the doctor. Online lab appointments We know our patients like to schedule their lab appointments online, which allows them to book appointments for times that work with their busy schedules, so we were happy to launch this new technology on our website earlier this year. Online registration / early check-in for appointments Weve also launched new technology that allows patients to check-in online before their appointment. Similar to how a customer may check-in early for an upcoming flight, the technology cuts down on paperwork and registration process in the offices. Patients are able to check right in for their appointment and from recent positive feedback we know our patients really like this added convenience! Tele-Medicine Millennium is currently piloting tele-medicine for how we can roll out this new service to our patients in the next few months. Tele-medicine continues the trend where if a patient needs to speak to a health care provider no matter if its at midnight you can reach a health care provider 24/7. Health care continues to change and patients want new technology and convenience that work for them. Technology will continue to be a large part of health care moving forward. Its a large part of our everyday lives now so it makes sense for it to be in the health care field. How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Growing and developing our employees skills is a core part of our business, but recently weve been looking at ways to streamline the processes for our team. Weve hired a director of health care learning and development for Millennium. Her role will be to foster employee talent and professional growth, as well as align all of the various training offerings under the banner of Millennium University. We are so excited about the launch of our Millennium University program for our team and providers. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? We are focused on always recruiting top talent to Millennium. We have a team that travels across the United States to recruit top providers to the Southwest Florida area to care for our patients. Our team also works with students who are looking for experience in the health care field with our goal being to hire them at Millennium upon their graduation from medical school or their residency program. Were also focused on hiring our veterans and placing them into roles within our organization. Our human resources department is consistently reviewing qualified candidates for positions within Millennium. Who is a mentor to you within your industry? I started my health care career 25 years ago at Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers. I had the privilege to work with Lalai Hamric, the CEO at the time. She always made sure that we kept the patient at the center of focus in this complex, demanding, and sometimes very frustrating, business of health care. She insisted that doing what is right for the patient should always be the foundation for how to run the business. Lalai passed away this past year, however, her mark will forever be left on this community.

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYrelated post-hurricane recovery jobs, officials said. But that fact has played only a minor role in the most startling by-thenumbers economic news in a decade: Unemployment in both the state and its southern regions along the Atlantic and Gulf Coast has reached a 10-year low, according to the Bureau of Labor Market Statistics in the states Department of Economic Opportunity, which tracks the numbers. September figures show Florida at a 4.1 percent unemployment rate, while some counties fell significantly lower: On the southwest coast, Collier and Charlotte counties both show a 3.9 percent unemployment rate with Lee coming in at 3.5 percent. In Palm Beach County, the September unemployment rate stood at 3.6 percent, down from 5.2 percent a year ago. Even with the impact of Irma, the countys unemployment rate is the lowest since March 2007, said Steve Craig, president and CEO of CareerSource Palm Beach, commenting in a press release. In contrast, during the recessionary summer of 2010 unemployment reached a high of 11.6 percent in Palm Beach County, and higher than that in Southwest Florida. Anytime you get below 4 percent unemployment, youre really talking full employment, because there are always some people changing jobs for a variety of reasons, said James Hall, communications director for CareerSource Southwest Florida, a branch of the statewide nonprofit organization created to develop jobs and promote job growth for a five-county region including Hendry and Glades, along with Collier, Charlotte and Lee. The population of the southwest region is about 1.25 million; Palm Beach County includes about 1.44 million residents. We are all very aware of the recession and the bubble-popping housing issue, in which unemployment rose to double figures in some areas, so this is a sign. It says, we have recovered, Mr. Hall said. Its a sign of something else, too, he added: The southwest coast is turning into a year-around economy. Yes, there will always be increased hiring for winter visitors, but the numbers show were maturing. The same is true in Palm Beach County, where the traditional sharp distinctions between season and off-season in employment and other economic activity is now significantly blurred, said Glenn Jergensen, executive director of the Tourist Development Council, who spoke to Florida Weekly earlier in the year. For businesses all of that means two things, explained Mr. Hall: One, recruiting is going to be more difficult, and two, when you get to full employment theres pressure for wages to increase. It also triggers the Feds, who have to decide whether to increase interest rates on loans. In spite of hurricanes, algae blooms, and a presidential election season now one year old that created significant caution in some investors, the over-year numbers in Southwest Florida are promising, according to the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University: Between September 2016 and September 2017, tourist tax revenues in the coastal counties increased 2 percent; taxable sales were up 2 percent; activity at Southwest Florida International Airport was up 11 percent; Southwest Florida gained 9,106 jobs (Palm Beach gained 4,600 new jobs); and the median price of homes in Lee County was up $29,836. The RERI report adds this sobering note, however: The effects of Hurricane Irma could be seen in certain economic indicators for the month of September. These include a 26 percent decrease in building permits and a 29 percent decline in home sales for the coastal counties in September. In spite of the rosy numbers, however, some industries still struggle to find skilled workers; in many cases they spend years working with partners in the regions various educational institutions to develop training programs that can help meet the needs. For example, logistics, says Mr. Hall. The need for individuals skilled in distributing goods nationwide may soon become urgent and for reasons that, by Mr. Halls accounting, reach to the Panama Canal. Not only that, but filling those jobs would likely be a game-changing occurrence in the Florida county with the highest unemployment rate, Hendry at 8.6 percent, as well as for communities in the western flank of Palm Beach County. The widening of the Panama Canal allowed huge supertankers to pass through it, but there was no more room to expand in the port of Miami, he said. So there are plans to create a huge distribution center somewhere to be determined in Hendry. Goods would be moved there, and from there planes and trains and trucks would deliver them all over the country. This is a game changer in particular for higher-wage skills such as logistics. As the area starts to grow and becomes year-around, and if the inland port notion comes to fruition, well need to pay a lot of skilled people who are good at logistics. There are other occupations on the radar, too, including in health care, where registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and especially certified nursing assistants are often in short supply, says Michelle Zech, a human resources business partner in workforce planning for Lee Memorial Health Systems Weve created a CNA program to have funding through our educational partners (including FGCU and Florida SouthWestern State College, among others) who help individuals fill these needs. CNAs, for example, are crucial to the comfortable, safe routines of hospital care, working on the floors to assistant nurses and there arent enough of them. Weve found this is a great entrance to a career in health services, Ms. Zech said. Our goal is to help these individuals become CNAs, and in many cases to go on from there. Once they work for a year here (at Lee Health) they qualify for tuition reimbursement if they go back to school. In which case a number of programs exist to let them become LPNs or RNs. My goal is to help create these career paths, Ms. Zech added and to fill a sometimes-significant gap in the big economic tapestry that requires skilled workers. And once created, workers will need affordable places to live. Where are the teachers going to live? Where are the logistics officers or nurses going to live? asked Mr. Hall. Finding affordable housing, especially housing near enough to the workplace to be desirable, can be a huge challenge. In Palm Beach County, for example, Career Source is working to help accommodate some of the roughly 58,000 Puerto Ricans who have arrived in the state since the devastating Hurricane Maria ruined Puerto Rico. But median home prices in the county run about $345,000 for single-family homes already standing, which is outpaced by Colliers $354,000, and very little affordable housing in sight. That can make it more difficult to hire skilled workers for many businesses, and it can give Lee County, for example, an advantage, said Mr. Hall. In Lee, where median home prices were just over $226,000 last spring (compared to an all-time high of $298,975 a decade ago before the recession), affordable housing exists in such sections as San Carlos Park, Lehigh Acres and parts of Cape Coral.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 BUSINESS A33What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?Contrary to the last six years of tightened underwriting guidelines, this year weve seen a much needed expansion of credit and underwriting guidelines. This has opened up the opportunity for homeownership to customers that may have been excluded in the past six years. This easing of underwriting guidelines combined with several down payment assistance programs that we offer has made the dream of home ownership a little easier for many.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry?Online tools for prequalification have made approval for mortgages faster and more efficient. And now the combination of financial advisors with the mortgage industry have combined the good sense to utilize property investments for personal portfolios. Innovation and staying ahead of the technology curve are critical components of a successful, modern mortgage company. In much the same way that Amazon Prime has revolutionized the speed and convenience with which consumers shop for goods, technology is changing the speed and ease with which consumers obtain a mortgage.How are you responding to changes in the local economy?Our focus has always been helping those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership. In pursuit of this dream, we continue to add mortgage products that will help more borrowers qualify for a home loan. Whether its a bank statement loan in lieu of tax returns for a self-employed individual, a zero down VA or USDA loan or down payment assistance, our wide array of products help keep us ahead of the changing economy.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Commitment to helping those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership. Consistently closing mortgage loans smoothly and on time. Hiring and retaining exceptional and professional loan originatorsWhat are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?Since 2009, the pendulum swung too far in the direction of over-regulation and compliance. This over-regulation has added tremendous cost and time onto the mortgage process which ultimately gets passed on to the consumer. While much of the regulation was needed, some of it needs to be repealed in order to ease the burden on borrowers.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Our knowledge and experience set us apart from our competition. These qualities allow us to bring confidence to the home buyer and Realtors that the home loan will close on-time. Additionally, we now offer advance approval to our borrowers which effectively makes that buyer as strong as a cash buyer.Whats your superpower?Being able to see in the distance. Projecting outcome.What will you base your success on for 2018?Continue to hire and retain knowledgeable and experienced loan originators who are committed to help those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year?

Our proprietary HomeOn-Time online mortgage application walks our borrowers through the loan application process, allows borrowers to upload their information directly to the online document portal and will even electronically reach out to obtain the borrowers bank statements and payroll history as long as the borrower has granted permission.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Hand picking the best of the best who rub off on each other. High standards never fail. We start with hiring the most experienced and professional loan originators who are committed to helping our customers achieve the dream of home ownership. With that said, continued training on product knowledge, compliance and in delivering an exceptional experience for our borrowers is a top priortity.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year?I would have a tough time singling out one and I am proud to say this.What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County/ Charlotte County/Palm Beach County?What is not to love?

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRontos Seaglass high-rise at Bonita Bay tops offThe Ronto Group announced construction of Seaglass, a 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise tower being built by the awardwinning developer within Bonita Bay, has topped-off. Ronto expects the building to be completed and ready for occupancy next summer. Three furnished models are expected to be completed and available for viewing by the end of this year. An off-season surge in sales that began in August has continued into November. Sold and pending sales contracts worth $143 million have been processed and the building is nearing 70% sold. Robb & Stuckys Susan J. Bleda ASID and Rachelle Porcos sophisticated design for the 804 tower residence model will provide exceptional livability. The 3,088 square feet floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Set against a background tone of soft sandy bisque, the color palette will include light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass will be layered with matte gold and silver metallics to evoke a sense of the shimmering sea and wave-smoothed seaglass. Furnishings will be clean-lined with fabrics that include the textural diversity of leather against cotton and linen. In the living area, Bleda and Porcos plan calls for a 10-foot wide fireplace within a built-out section that will be adorned with glistening wallpaper. The fireplace surround will be clean and contemporary. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top again evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore. To highlight the adjacent dining area and create an intimate setting within the larger space, Bleda and Porco have designed a rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers for a distinctive look. The tower residence 306 floor plan offers 3,421 square feet under air and 525 square feet of outdoor covered terrace space. The great room plan includes three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom, three-and-a-half baths, a large island kitchen and dining area, and a private elevator lobby. The design created by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer of Renee Gaddis Interiors includes an optional fireplace and a dry bar with wine storage. Gaddis has incorporated architectural details in the design, including ceiling and millwork details. Gaddis design will showcase classic style with a contemporary edge. She will incorporate various wood tones, mixing light and dark for eclectic charm, and her color palette will be based on cool matte blue grays. The flooring will be a warm wood tone. The wall tones in the living areas will be clean gray. A ceiling design in the dining area and kitchen will incorporate a double-step detail with drywall beams. The dining area between the kitchen and great room will feature a rectangular table that will seat eight. The kitchen will present a fresh aura with light countertops. The great room will feature another ceiling detail in a checkerboard style and multiple seating areas. A fireplace clad in marble will provide the focus for the television viewing area. Sliders will open to a terrace where the owners will enjoy the views and an al fresco Florida lifestyle. This generous space will accommodate a grill zone with a dining table and chairs for six and a conversation lounge area with an L-shaped sectional sofa and a round cocktail table. The tower residence 605 floor plan offers 2,889 square feet plus 464 square feet of covered outdoor terrace space. The open-concept plan features a private elevator lobby. A gallery hallway leads from the foyer to a living area with a great room, gourmet kitchen, dining area, and a sitting area. The great room, dining area, and the owners suite open to a terrace with spectacular views. The plan includes two guest bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The designers transformed one of the guest room spaces into a study. Cinnabar Designs Diana Hall, ASID and Laurie Walter, ASID have taken their 605 design inspiration from the name of the high-rise tower. With a palette of tonal neutrals and the liberal use of sea glass aqua and beige accents, the residence will provide a framework for the views. The designers plan includes a contemporary approach to create a sense of anticipation from the private elevator foyer, through the hallway, and into a great room with west-facing views. The flooring will be light Italian porcelain with a tracing of pale gray. In the great room, the designers envision a semi-circular sectional done in textured soft beige fabric and accented with sea glass toned pillows. They also plan to include a Lucite and glass cocktail table to anchor the space. The shape of the sofa will allow 270-degree views of the surrounding area. Two rounded back swivel chairs are planned to be set with a small table by the west window to allow sunset viewing. The feature wall will be designed to include a custom wood built-in and will incorporate a low media console in driftwood beige and white lacquer finish.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMy first visit to the neighborhoods at MediterraAs I shared with you last week, Ive been searching for a new home set in a community that will provide a setting where I can live life the way that I choose to live it. After looking for a while, a friend suggested I check out London Bay Homes Mediterra community on Livingston Parkway in North Naples. Well, I did visit Mediterra. Its a beautiful place with every amenity on my checklist, including a private, residentsonly, 10,000 square-foot beach club on Little Hickory Island with indoor and al fresco dining. After my first visit, I told my Sales Executive, Lisa, that I would be back to look at Mediterras home sites and model home choices. I must tell you, theres a lot to look at over 60 sites, models, and fully furnished movein ready homes. That brought a smile to my face. No other community I had visited offered so many choices! Lisa introduced me to Mediterras newest neighborhoods, all of which are being developed and built by London Bay Homes. We started in the Caminetto neighborhood, the newest of the Lake District neighborhoods developed by London Bay. As we drove through Caminetto, I was struck by the way it is so peacefully integrated with its natural surroundings. Its as if life in Caminetto celebrates the neighborhoods exquisite views of glistening sapphire fountained lakes and nature preserves along with lovely short walks to the Parterre Garden, a picturesque sanctuary of formal gardens, sitting areas, and a large reflecting pond with waterspouts. Its a place with a very intimate feeling that felt comfortable to me. After taking it in, I asked Lisa about the price point. It turned out that luxurious single-family villa homes are priced from the high $1-millions to the upper $2-millions. If you ask me, thats a great value given what Mediterra offers and the caliber of London Bays architectural and interior designs. Just so you know, buildable home sites and two completed furnished model homes are available within Caminetto. A third model is planned. The Cabreo neighborhood was next on our tour. I found out Cabreos maintenance-free single-family luxury villas range from 2,800 to 3,200 square feet under air and are priced from $1 million. More importantly to me, the neighborhood showcases a rustic Mediterranean style with fine appointments, including grand entrances, ornate stone details, barrel tile roofs, and cobblestyle brick paved driveways. The architectural designs feature open, flowing floor plans, interior and exterior arches, tall ceilings, and rich finishes. The streetscape is single-loaded and the home sites measure 65 to 70 feet by approximately 130 feet with golf course, lake, and nature preserve views. Equally impressive, Cabreo is situated adjacent to Mediterras 1.2 miles of landscaped walking trails and within comfortable walking distance of the communitys gardens. Ill be visiting the three completed furnished models that are available in Cabreo. Lisa told me a fourth model is planned. When we visited London Bays Lucarno neighborhood, I was struck by the double-loaded, one-way cobblestone streets, rich terra cotta and rustic stone appointments, sparkling lakes, glorious gardens, and majestic fountains that create a distinctive European feeling. So, was this another one of Mediterras long-established Mediterranean neighborhoods? Not at all. From what I saw, Lucarnos custom villa homes are a triumph of space and design and offer an uncommon level of versatility. Outdoor balconies, private patios, covered loggias, and courtyards all flow seamlessly into classic contemporary indoor spaces waiting to be experienced. The interiors reflect London Bays updated sense of elegance that is confident enough to allow comfort and livability to move to the forefront rather than keeping them in the background and subservient to the heaviness of traditional Mediterranean styles. For me, London Bays approach to maintenance-free one and two-story single-family villa design blends the splendor of Naples with the intimacy of the Old World. I was intrigued and asked Lisa to tell me more about it. She told me Lucarno will showcase 71 lakeside villa homes ranging from 2,900 to over 4,000 square feet priced from $1.5 million. Buildable home sites and two completed furnished models are available. After Lucarno, Lisa and I visited Mediterras Cortile neighborhood. For me, it captures the lan of an idyllic Mediterranean coastal village while offering close proximity to every amenity within the community. Even so, it exudes the feeling of being a world apart. Its a neighborhood that will include eighteen 4,200 to 7,000+ estate residences and twenty-eight 3,100 to 6,200 square feet villa homes when its finished. Lisa assured me that estate and villa home sites with golf course, lake or preserve views and two completed furnished models are available in Cortile and that two additional models are under construction. Yea for me! Plenty of choices! From what Lisa showed me during our first home tour, London Bay has set a new standard for sophisticated design and luxurious living in Cortile. Spacious, unrestrained floor plans offer extensive architectural detailing, unique accents, rich finishes, luxurious options that come standard, tumbled stone drives, grand entries, multiple courtyards, and secluded patios. Estate home sites in Cortile are priced from $875,000 to $1.35 million and accommodate residences 4,200 to more than 7,000 square feet. Wondering what the models in each neighborhood are like? Stay tuned Ill let you know what I find out! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Visit Mediterra online at MediterraNaples.com. Top: London Bay Homes furnished Capriano model in Lucarno at Mediterra reflects the contemporary designs the luxury homebuilder is introducing within the community.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 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.

Outlook strong for commercial NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSCommercial prices will plateau and might fall in large markets, but secondary markets will experience sustained demand and stable real estate prices in the year ahead, Lawrence Yun, National Association of Realtors chief economist, predicts. Buyers and sellers could be at odds over price, howver, he added. The commercial market should expect a standoff between buyers and sellers over price in the next year, which could lead to fewer transactions. Buyers cannot offer low cap rates because of rising interest rates, and sellers cite the strong economic climate as a reason for high prices. Furthermore, vacancy is falling, yet construction has been lagging because of worker shortages, Mr. Yun said. Overall, he added, the market is healthy; commercial property prices rose 90 percent in the last seven years, but recent headwinds are developing some ambiguity. He expects GDP to come in around 2.2 percent for the year and to expand to 2.8 percent overall in 2018, as long as job growth remains solid and construction picks up in both residential and commercial sectors. National office vacancy rates are forecast to remain fixed over the coming year with rent rising at 2.5 percent per year. The vacancy rate for industrial and retail space are expected to also remain stable with rent rising sl owly at 4 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

Those are just some of the homey touches that make a model unit feel lived in and help make a sale. You want customers to daydream a little bit. Everyone always buys what they see, says Darline Hillard, director of sales at AQUA at Pelican Isle, the waterfront two-tower, 13-story luxurycondominium community with residences ranging from $1.995 to $4.895 million. When you see the model, it shows the potential, she adds. To close the deal in a competitive condo market, developers carefully curate model units in ways that go far beyond mere staging. Custom-designed closets, one-of-a-kind artwork, designer light fixtures and brand-name luxury goods are strategically chosen to sell the promise of a lavish lifestyle that comes with a luxury apartment. Condominiums typically sell faster or for more money when potential buyers can see completed models and not just computer renderings viewed online, says AQUA developer Chris Hanlon, who adds he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to outfit three model residences at AQUA. Before the 32 homes in the AQUA Tower II were completed, prospects could see a model unit with wide planked oak floors, Miehle kitchen appliances and a spa-like master bathfeatures that help increase the selling price, says Hanlon. As models are delivered, people pay more. To target specific demographics, AQUA made sure to create various dcor styles, working with three interior designers. In smaller units, pared-down modern furnishings with brighter colors typically appeal to younger buyers, while larger units often use more traditional interiors to draw in buyers who are downsizing from a larger home, says Jerilyn Antonacci, principal at the Antonacci Design Firm, a Naples interior-design firm specializing in new construction. We make some assumptions, says Ms. Antonacci, who adds that the process can take six months and can cost $100,000 or more. In some cases, residences were sold as completely unfinished raw space, with the models just an example of what can be done. In other cases, the model unit gives buyers a look at the fixtures and finishes that will be available in all of the units in the building. Some buyers opt to purchased furnished models. In one unit, carving out a dining area from the main living space increases interest, even if owners skip the formal space, Ms. Antonacci has learned. She often uses light-colored marble in kitchen and bathroom areas. In each project, she works to highlight the room layout, the use of high-end flooring or extras, such as surround sound or motorized window shades. Furniture and wall colors are somewhat neutral to appeal to a wider swath of potential buyers. Even if thats a little boring for you, you are not offended by it, she says. Walking through a model may speed up a buying decision because it evokes feelings of happiness, adds Ms. Hillard. Rather than looking at the unit on paper, the experience of seeing and feeling the various finishes evokes an emotion thats going to enter into the buying decision, she says. While model-unit purchases are not tracked by real-estate services, 31% of buyers agents say that staging a home increases its value by 1% to 5%, according to a 2017 survey of 1,894 agents by the National Association of Realtors. Choosing the right brands to display in the models is key. Potential buyers need to be familiar enough with the designs to feel as if they are walking into their home, says Ms. Hillard. Contracts for AQUA Tower II are ongoing, with Naples-based PACT Realty serving as the exclusive listing agent. Three furnished models by award-winning interior designers Antonacci Design, Renee Gaddis Interior Design and Beasley & Henley Interior Design are available for purchase and open daily for viewing. Each model reflects the modern architectural style of the high-rise and showcases several features of AQUAs sophisticated and refined design, while offering distinctly different floor plans and finishes.

In 2001, American painter Nick Kosciuk unwittingly found himself called to capture the hidden lives of Belorussian orphans many of whom have parents who relinquished them to the state. The Butterfly Has Three Lives, an exhibit of portraits he created over the course of 20 trips to the former Soviet state, hangs at East West Fine Arts Bigham Galleria Nov. 16-Dec. 7. The faces of the orphans stare directly into the viewers eyes and challenge them with frankness and vulnerability. Their innocence and their suffering as well as their halos and wings urge viewers to give them succor as He commanded. Mr. Kosciuk answered the call with almost two decades of individual attention, pretty props, a camera and oil paints. You have to understand that these children are thoroughly unwanted. They are deemed oftentimes even by the staff as a paycheck, the artist said. They get no visitors. The idea of a visitor was very, very rare, and a returning visitor was unthinkable.

St. Martins Paperback, 157 pages. Kindle e-book, $3.99.It is a pleasure to meet a talented writer entering new territory. Naples resident Gwendolyn Heasley (Gigi Garrett) made a reputation for her young adult novels, including the remarkable Dont Call Me Baby (2014) reviewed in these pages. Now she fathoms the more complicated depths of women who have extended their single lives for one reason or another. In Her Fake Engagement, Lotti Langerman is approaching 30 with questions about her unsatisfying love life. A successful New York real estate agent, she is attractive and yet not sure of herself. She has established a list of rules to help her navigate the stormy seas of romance. Lotti hopes to avoid mistakes; shed rather be a bit boring that be caught off-guard, too easily impressed or sending misunderstood signals. Her friends make fun of her rule-bound existence, but Lotti is determined to avoid reckless spontaneity and play it safe. But the gambit isnt quite working. The events in this delightful, breezy book derive from two situations. One of these is Lottis career as an upscale real estate agent. It is her good fortune to meet well-to-do young men on whom she can work her considerable sales skills. Lotti is really good at what she does. She is well prepared, persuasive, good at reading her clients personalities and especially good at minimizing their objections to perceived shortcomings about residences and neighborhoods. Readers receive an enjoyable lesson in salesmanship and in the New York real estate scene. At the same time, they look into the life of an independent woman trying to build a career in the big city. Lottis clients include Andrew and Tyler, two young men she explores in her imagination as possible boyfriends and maybe more. But, of course, one of her rules is to avoid mixing business with pleasure. Lotti wonders what attracts her to Tyler, whose interests and traits would seem to be red flags warning her to back off. His work as a jewelry designer is especially intriguing, as is his appraisal of an engagement ring Lotti wears or doesnt wear depending upon how she wants to present herself: available or not. The second situation feeding the events in Lottis life is the frivolous game she plays with her girlfriends. They pretend marriage engagements and put on over-the-top bachelorette parties. Before and even during these parties, Lotti puts up some resistance. Such parties, after all, are a game of abandoning caution most definitely not her style. But Elsa May (who plays the game to relax from her marriage), Mia and Jane persuade their friend to play. The conversations leading up to and through the parties are hilarious, though there are arguments along the way. The dialogue between the friends is uproarious. However, its tones and references will most likely be enjoyed more by female readers rather than by any males who wander into a world only vaguely familiar. That said, gentlemen, I assure you there is much here for you to learn and enjoy. With caring laughter, the novella details Lottis slow conversion from being a woman who lives by a rule sheet to someone more flexible who explores, though with caution, the possibilities of spontaneity and risk-taking. She begins to act on the hope that everything good is found when you color outside the lines. Ms. Garretts 2015 self-published romantic novella Miss Christmas, available as an e-book, will be released as a Hallmark movie later this year. Whether Her Fake Engagement will appear in printed book form depends upon the success of the e-book version. Im rooting for her.

Youre Never Too Old To Be Young consists of five short plays, each read by TNP actors with scripts in hand and minimal costumes or props. The plays and playwrights are: Post-Its by Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman In this homage to Love Letters, an actor and actress read the Post-it Notes between a couple that span the duration of their lives together. Hilarious and moving, it explores the ups and downs of a relationship that were unexpectedly captured on scraps of paper. Its a Sin to Tell a Lie by Jason Miller An elderly man and woman meet in their doctors waiting room and begin a casual conversation. Hes a would-be poet and shes a dreamer who fancies that she has had much more in life than she did. As they tell ever more outrageous fibs to each other, the deeper truth of their essential loneliness emerges and in a very touching way they find each other, and the friendship and concern of another human being that they both so desperately needed. Postcards by James Prideaux For 30 years, Margaret and Leonardo have sat each day at adjoining desks, writing postcards to famous people, without ever getting any answers. Now, having run out of live personages to write to, they decide to address their cards to the famous dead. Imagine their consternation when a reply arrives, bringing a poignant revelation of unspoken feelings that have, through all the years, lay dormant beneath the calm surface. Fear of Flying by Jason D. Martin A wife must trick her husband into flying to their sons wedding.

Audiences attending The Naples Players production of Maple and Vine feel as if theyre stepping back in time. The thought-provoking play is about a modern-day, 21st-century couple who meet some 1950s re-enactors who live as if it s 1955. In fact, their entire gated community lives that way. They call themselves the Society of Dynamic Obsolescence. The women cook from scratch or, in a pinch, heat up those new TV dinners. There are no cell phones or texting. People dial each other up on a landline or talk face-to-face. Theres no cable TV or internet. People read, play charades and dance together to music from the hi-fi. And of course, day and night, they all wear 1950s fashions. They look like characters in a Douglas Sirk film. I feel as if I walked out of the pages of Vogue, says Jessica Walck, who plays Ellen, one of the re-enactors and head of the communitys Authenticity Committee (shes also associate artistic director for the Players). I feel like a 1950s advertisement, where the wife is drinking a martini and vacuuming the floor while wearing full garb! Thats the image I have in my head: the perfect wife. Thats what my characters trying to be for (her husband.) It was a fun role to dive into for me. The 35-year-old Ms. Walck has a special affinity to the s. She says when she was growing up, she and her mother loved watching I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show on TV. And many dresses in her closet today were influenced by the era. I always say my body was built for that time. My body was built for that silhouette, she says. I knew going into this show that I was going to feel beautiful. When she put on her first navy suit for the show, I felt like Lucille Ball, who is an idol of mine, she says. In any theater production, costuming and make-up really help actors get into character, and that was especially true for Maple & Vine, Ms. Walck says. All the costumes help inform your body to fall into that posture in the s way. You have to think about your posture and how you sit and how your legs are. All the costumes immediately made me stand up straighter and made me feel more feminine, she adds. More so than in other plays shes been in, she says, her outfits for Maple & Vine really helped the process. For example, theres the floral cocktail dress she wears for a dinner party scene her favorite, she confesses. Its slightly corseted, which helps her posture more. And underneath, unseen, she wears the undergarments of the s, to create a more authentic look. A lot of the women of that time wore long-line bras that reached to their waist, she says, likening the bras, girdles and stockings of the time to the original Spanx. Women of the s were a whole different animal entirely underneath their clothing. That was how they kept those lines looking the way they wanted them. And all the skirts sit on your waist, not your hips, which puts the center of that outfit on a different part of your body. Ms. Walck, who describes herself as athletic and very sporty in real life, says the clothes she wears as Ellen help her express the sophistication and poise that were so typical of s women. It feels fantastic to wear the clothes, says Tina Moroni, who plays Katha. Her character, the only other woman in Maple & Vine, has a high-pressure job in todays publishing world and joins the Society of Dynamic Obsolescence with her husband after they meet some members. I think it was the gloves that changed the whole thing for me, Ms. Moroni says about her costumes. As a character, I just feel very put together when I have all those pieces. Its very polished. The gloves, the hat, the undergarments, all the buttons, the shoes everything, every bit of it goes toward a cumulative aesthetic that transports you right into that time period. And shes very fond of that era; it was one of the things that drew her to the play in the first place, she says. Like Ms. Walck, she also owns a lot of s-inspired clothing. She strategically wore one of her favorites to audition for the role. Im new to the area, she explains. I thought itd be easier to imagine me in this part if you saw me in this clothing. It worked. When Tina came in to audition, she came in a dress that looked like the s style, and as soon as everyone saw it, they said, Thats the girl we want, recalls costume designer Jack Cole. Like Ms. Walck, Ms. Moroni also sought out original undergarments of the time as part of her wardrobe for the show. They hold you in a different way, and everything is meant to create that wonderful kind of hourglass shape, she says. Its lovely. The s, she adds, were a wonderful period for clothing. Jack really did his job with that one. Her favorite outfit Katha wears isnt the glamorous evening gown or any of the form-fitting suits she wears, but a housedress she dons for only a very short time. Its yellow and has a cherry pattern on it, she says. I love that one. Its indicative of all the romanticism we think about when we think of the s. Its so sweet, so prim. I love wearing it, but I think thats the shortest period of time I wear a costume in the whole show. Both actresses did have to make one concession, though: They wear pantyhose, which had not been invented when Maple & Vine takes place, instead of stockings. With the shows numerous and quick costume changes, stockings and garter belts would simply have taken too much time.The man behind the outfitsMr. Cole was very happy to be the costume designer for this show. At 69, he remembers the era firsthand and shared stories from it with the cast, including one about an older cousin, who was 16, walking down the stairs in a skirt that was sticking straight out, because she was wearing 15 petticoats underneath. And when the men in the cast said something about their pants having cuffs, I said, You have to remember, back in the s, about 75 percent of the people smoked. You dumped your ashes in the cuffs of your pants I used to see my dads friends come over, and thats what theyd do, sitting outside on the porch. Youd flick them in, and then when you got off the porch, youd empty your ashes into the shrubs. But youd stamp out your cigarette butts in your ashtrays. Maple & Vine is an unusually costume-heavy show. It has numerous scenes, and various clothing not only indicates different locales but also the advancement of time. This play has more costume changes than some of the big musicals we put on, Mr. Cole says. Even the guys have a lot of costume changes, but especially the women. The Naples Players costume shop has a wide variety of costumes, organized by decades, including a few s outfits that had to be reworked to fit Ms. Walck, who is much taller than the previous actress whod worn some of the clothing. And several outfits had to be made from scratch. I came up with designs, what I wanted for the day dresses, and the costume shop made them, Mr. Cole says. His creative process begins with an idea board. He looked online and perused pictures of s clothing, hairstyles and accessories: hats, gloves, shoes. From that, he determined what he wanted in terms of color and fabrics. You had to keep it simple, he says. You had cotton. You didnt have all these polyesters. Thats part of the excitement, to find something that fits with your image. I did drawings of every outfit I wanted to do, and then I had to try and find the fabric to fit the drawing. That was fun. The process was interrupted by Hurricane Irma, which stole more than a week from production time. Still, the show opened on schedule. Audiences are responding, and Mr. Cole is thrilled with the positive response. People have commented on the costumes, the fabrics, he says. They cant believe we found stuff that looks like that. It was certainly a different era for clothing. You had to look a certain way, he says. You had to be neat. There were no Casual Fridays.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 *Restrictions apply. See server for full details. COLLECTORS CORNER Celebrate the everyday use your finery while you can scott SIMMONS email@example.com The holidays are upon us and with them comes an opportunity to use our nice dishes and silver to celebrate. But why limit ourselves to the holidays? When my friend Rand Hochs parents downsized and moved to Florida, his mother gave him her Royal Doulton china and a set of International Silvers Royal Danish sterling flatware. For years, these once-cherished objects sat unused in a kitchen cupboard, trotted out for special occasions just as they had in his parents home. A few years ago, he lamented to me that he didnt know what to do with that silver or the china after all, he only used them a couple times and they were taking up space. My answer? Use them. He took my advice, got the silver out and began using it for every day. The china gets trotted out on occasion now, too. A few months ago, he told me that was the best advice I could have given him. He derives enormous pleasure from using that silver, and with regular use, it has begun to take on a warm patina. Yes, the service for eight might have a retail value of $1,200-$1,500, but most sets of similar quality and vintage wind up being scrapped on the secondary market because no one wants them. I often point out to readers who ask me what to do with their sets of silver that they should get them out and use them. Silver that is used regularly does not need heavy polishing. And unless it is a rare antique or something like Georg Jensen or Tiffany, it is easily replaceable. It bears repeating: The next time it appears on the market, its highly likely that it will be melted down. Im reminded of the lesson from Thornton Wilders play, Our Town. Its the special occasions that we remember, but its the day-to-day rituals and routines that make us love people and, by association, things. As I said to Rand, isnt every day that you are able to get up and prepare a meal a day that is worth celebrating? Many folks dont have that luxury so why not use your finery? Get it out and enjoy it while you can. Bought: W est P alm Beach Antiques Festival, South Florida Fairgrounds. Next show is Dec. 1-3; www.wpbaf.com. Paid: $35 The Skinny: International Silver introduced its Royal Danish pattern in 1939 and still manufactures the pattern. Its a classic that draws on the lines of Georg Jensens Acorn pattern, and it is a pattern that is elegant for formal dining, but simple enough for everyday use. This will be a little gift for my friend Rand Hoch, who has his moms set of Royal Danish and who has done much through his work with the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council to ensure equal housing, employment and access to health care. Those issues are so vital to Rand and to the rest of the community. Anything else is gravy.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9-15, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY New TRAVELING Exhibit OPENS NOVEMBER 15! COMING SOON! NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409Come meet these playful African Penguins before theyre gone! At Naples Zoo from November 15, 2017 through April 15, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE ARTS COMMENTARY Falling in love with Sylvia at Florida RepDog lovers should never marry dog haters. They just dont get it. In this kind of union, I wouldnt blame the marriage for breaking up due to irreconcilable differences. Dog lovers appreciate the affection and loyalty a canine gives without reserve. Dog haters just see them as smelly, messy, four-footed creatures that shed and drool. In Sylvia, the opening show of Florida Repertory Theatres 20th season, Kate (Carrie Lund) is upset when her husband Greg (John Ottavino) brings home a dog named Sylvia (played with unbridled sass by Michelle Damato.) He found her in a park and fell in love, even though his wife has said she doesnt want any dogs at this point in their lives. This play by AR Gurney, who also wrote The Cocktail Hour, Indian Blood and Love Letters, just to name a few, last graced the venue in 2011. Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo brought it back due to overwhelming popular demand. Waiting just a season or two more would have raised the anticipation even more, for me, but this quartet of actors gives a solid performance. And yes, the ending still makes me cry, dammit. Ms. Damato deserves a jumbo box of Milk-Bones for her energetic performance. She delivers an uncanny impersonation of a dog: the look of pure devotion she bestows on Greg, the way her front paws twitch when shes sleeping, how she turns around and around before lying down. The outfits costume designer Alexandria Vazquez gives her also help. Ms. Damatos pigtails look just like floppy ears. And when we first meet her, shes in a tan denim vest thats mostly brown fur, with patches of fur on her back pants pockets, wrists and ankles. Sylvia is a dog that talks. She talks to her humans, Greg and Kate, with asides to us, the audience. Because she plays the titular character, its Ms. Damato who makes or breaks the show, and she delivers. A comedic dynamo, she quivers with puppy energy even when sitting still. Shes inquisitive, running around the room, checking out everything. And, like all dogs, she just cant resist the couch, even when she learns its forbidden. The way she delivers her lines is just as funny as her physical comedy. Streetsmart and feisty, shes a New York dog with a real New York attitude. One of my favorite scenes is when she spies a cat underneath a car and starts shouting at it, using language definitely not for childrens ears. As Sylvia, shes foul-mouthed and sassy, but also inquisitive and devoted and full of unconditional love. Mr. Ottavino is relatable as a man going through a mid-life crisis: Hes frustrated with his job and questioning his place in life. Another character describes him as being in those dangerous years those years after the first hint of upcoming retirement and the whiff of the nursing home. Meanwhile, Ms. Lund, as his wife, is just starting to make advances in her career and gain recognition (though Greg belittles it as just a phase). Hands down, Ms. Lund has the most thankless role. You want her character to succeed in her career, but its hard to warm to her, as shes so dour and negative about dogs. The playwright gives the audience no positive scenes with Kate prior to the unleashing of her objectives about Sylvia. You can understand that she doesnt want the added responsibility of taking care of a dog and wants to have a free social life with her husband, but Kate just seems to hate dogs so much, you find yourself rooting for her husband. Of course, Sylvia can seem like the other woman, almost like a mistress. Greg lavishes attention and love upon her while neglecting his wife. David Breitbarth plays a trio of roles. The first is Tom, a macho man Greg meets at the dog park. Tom reads a lot of books and philosophizes a lot. He so relates to his own dog that he refuses to have the pooch neutered. But its his two other characters that threaten to steal the show. His Phyllis is a family friend a woman of a certain age from the East Side dressed in a Chanel suit with a double strand of pearls at her throat. And he also plays Leslie, a therapist of indeterminate gender or, as Leslie puts it, I let my patients select my gender. (Ms. Vazquez again works her magic here, putting Mr. Breitbarth in a flowing New Age-style tunic.) Sylvia is the kind of show where absurdity reigns: If women can be dogs, then some men can love their goldfish so much they bathe with them in the tub. At one point, three of the characters start singing a Cole Porter song. Its a strange little play, but director Maureen Heffernan treats it not only with just the right light touch but with care and respect for the characters. And its to her credit, and Mr. Breitbarths, that neither of the actors female roles is played for mockery. Designer Ray Rechts minimalist set is a sedate, gray-walled apartment with white molding and leather furniture. The backdrop is a wall-to-wall, ceilingto-floor sea of apartment windows of various-sized rectangles and squares. You saved my life, Sylvia declares earnestly and gratefully in Act I. And if you know anything about dogs, you wont be surprised that I attest she, in return, saves theirs. Because thats what dogs always do, if we let them. Greg (John Ottavino) brings home a dog named Sylvia (played by Michelle Damato).

The hand occurred many years ago in a rubber-bridge game. South opened one club, and, after West had overcalled with two hearts (strong in those days), North raised to three clubs on decidedly skimpy values. East bid three hearts, and South tried three spades. After North bid five clubs over Wests four hearts, South could hardly be criticized for carrying on to six. He had a right to expect strong trump support from partner, and that was about all he needed. Why North bid five clubs is difficult to understand. He no doubt intended the bid as a sacrifice against four hearts, but whatever the reason, the outcome w as disastrous. West led a heart, and South ruffed. Faced with certain defeat, declarer attempted to cut his losses by leading a club, hoping to find the trumps divided 2-2 and so go down only one. But West won the club with the ten and continued with the A-K-Q, drawing all the remaining trumps. He then cashed five hearts to defeat the contract eight tricks. The penalty amounted to 4,400 points because at that time (1934), the first undertrick was 200 points, the second 300, the third 400 and so on. Furthermore, to add insult to injury, West scored 100 honors to bring the total loss on the deal to 4,500 points. 239.292.1529 craveculinaire.com venuenaples.com Venue Naples is a fully-customizable, versatile space for all your personal, corporate or charitable event needs, featuring the exceptional cuisine and services of Crave Culinaire the areas premier catering and concierge event group.

One-liners, physical comedy and even some Avengers jabs make the movie hilarious from start to finish, and easily the most enjoyable MCU entry since the first Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). After the action-packed and hysterical opening sequence set to the tune of Led Zeppelins Immigrant Song, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) visit their father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). The sons are warned that the prophecy of Ragnarok is imminent, which means the destruction of their home planet of Asgard. The destroyer is Odins first born and the goddess of death Hela (Cate Blanchett), who is so powerful she smashes Thors hammer with one hand. After losing an initial battle with Hela, Thor and Loki find themselves on a planet full of junk. Thor is taken as a slave by fellow Asgardian Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who left Asgard years ago. Meanwhile, Loki makes nice with the man who runs the planet, the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), and as we know Loki is never to be trusted. About an hour into the film the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) shows up; new friendships are not so easily formed, and total chaos reigns supreme in the most entertaining ways possible. The film was directed by Taika Waititi, who last year made the superb New dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com

Many of the MCU films have had humor, but none have been the flat-out comedy this is. Credit to Hemsworth, whos in just about every scene, for his impeccable comic timing, and to Waititi for taking what could have otherwise been a typical superhero movie and jolting it with a sense of pure joy. The tone is set early. In the opening scene, Thor has a tough-talk conversation with fiery baddie Surtur (voice of Clancy Brown). Because Thor is wrapped in chains and dangling in midair hes slowly spinning in circles, and every time Surtur gets to his menacing message Thor tells him to wait, hold on! so he can finish spinning and face Surtur again to hear the rest. Then Thor mistimes calling for his hammer, which leads to another awkward moment. Thor: Ragnarok also has unexpected surprises, guest stars in a delightful cameo-filled scene early on, and plenty of visual dazzle. If anything, it may be too much I saw it in IMAX 3D, and there were times when the visuals are overwhelming. A regular 3D screen, or even just a regular screen, would suit this movie just fine. But whatever you do, dont miss it. FILM CAPSULESWonderstruck 1/2(Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds, Oakes Fegley) In separate storylines set 50 years apart (1927 and 1957), deaf 12-year-olds (Simmonds and Fegley) in New York City search for what they feel their lives are missing. Strong performances, great visuals and masterful direction from Todd Haynes (Carol) make this one of the nicest and most fulfilling movie experiences of the year. Rated PG.Suburbicon 1/2(Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac) In a perfect 1950s American town, a home invasion kills Gardners (Damon) wife (Moore), leaving him with his son (Noah Jupe) and sister-inlaw (Moore again) to care for. Theres much more to the story that than, but it doesnt matter because nothing about this movie is in the least bit entertaining. Rated R.Breathe (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander) Paralyzed in his prime from polio, Robin (Garfield) finds new meaning in his life thanks to his wife (Foy) and other loved ones. Garfield and Foy are strong as the leads, and its ultimately a hopeful story thats not as depressing as it looks. Rated PG-13. >> Stay for the credits for an Avengers: In nity War (coming May 4) tease.Did you know?

Though that isnt the case anymore with the facility Mr. Kosciuk visited and supported for so long, the children still suffer with an acute sense of abandonment by parents who are severe alcoholics. They live with this trauma that they are unnecessary in life, he said. How could I not go back?, he added about his numerous trips to the orphanage to photograph the children. I couldnt just say I did my good deed and Im going to find something else. His young subjects, he said, were amazed that he even bothered to look at them. It was often the first time anyone had given them any personal attention or prejudice in their favor. They came to refer to him as Poppa Kolya. The results of Mr. Kosciuks photographs are paintings that portray the loneliness, hopefulness and vulnerability the children display for Poppa Kolya. Many of the portraits include the children wearing butterfly wings that when considered by viewers happen to be very symbolic although Mr. Kosciuk said his use of props was really to get the ball rolling toward images he could paint when he returns home. I had no real agenda. I just thought they would like it, he said about the first time he gave the children props. It was only later that it created this powerful image. This is what I like about being an artist: Only after I do it do I see what I like.

struck by the idea that images of the children posing on windowsills reference butter flies symbols of hope and freedom as stuck on the wrong side of the glass. Some of the paintings you see a row of windows another ward of the orphanage and I always imagine there are other children with wings on the other side, he said. Dandelions, too, were just flowers he picked for the children so they could have an object to play off in front of his camera. Dandelions are one of my favorite flowers, but not only do people hate them, they actively try to destroy them. Theyre very resilient, he said. But again, it wasnt something I was tuned into at the time.Gallery owner Olga Arkhangelskaya emphasizes that despite Mr. Kosciuks humility in describing his artistic process, its easy to see that the symbolism of the exhibit rings true. Perhaps the children dont realize it, but their lives are split among three successive realities: the beginning of their lives when their parents neglected them, the middle where they are relinquished to an orphanage that provides for only their physical needs, and the third when they hope their parents will reclaim them. Nick is giving them this glimpse of this third life they all dream about, she said, adding, For some of them it will remain a dream, she said. The flatness of Mr. Kosciuks perspective and his use of subtle halos remind Ms. Arkhangelskaya of the innocent but knowing angels of Russian icons, she said. His work is not only aesthetically pleasing and academically perfect, it really touches our soul, she said. Nobody can stay indifferent to these paintings. His art really grabs your heart and soul and demands that you look at these children.

Mr. Brillat-Savarin was on to something more than just the truffles value as a finishing top note to rich dishes; its also capable of emptying the pocketbooks of those who desire the real thing: In 2016, a 4.16-pound white truffle was sold at a Sothebys auction to a Chinese phone bidder for $61,250. Prices for 2017, however, sit at a cool $3,000 per pound because the years Italian crop shrank considerably due to a hot, dry summer. The truffles shocking price tag is attributable first to its delectability and secondly to its immunity to cultivation. Found mostly in France and Italy, harvesters not farmers are strictly dependent on environmental factors for each years crop, and a truffle-sniffing dog can locate at best a quarter of a pound. Black truffles, which are naturally more abundant, can be more affordable but are certainly not a bargain delicacy. True lovers of the renowned mushroom have to take advantage of its availability and expert preparation when they can, so below weve compiled some establishments that are celebrating truffle season with special promotions and dishes. Get em while theyre hot because they wont be around for long.

Lou is a major guy in the wine trade. He knows his stuff, and I trust him. He was talking about the Wine Experience, a three-day wine tasting marathon sponsored for charity by Wine Spectator magazine. For a whole weekend, oenophilic attendees such as restaurant owners, sommeliers and plain old enthusiasts like us wade through wine lunches, wine dinners, grand tastings, workshops and seminars, all to indulge ourselves in, and learn more about, one of our favorite pastimes enjoying fine wines and the foods that go with them. Problem is, the Wine Spectator folks dont kid around. The first tasting starts at 9 in the morning. Were talking Beaujolais for breakfast, if you know what I mean. When you swirl, sniff and sip fine wines at that hour, there are occupational hazards to deal with like walking to lunch on your knees. So if you know whats good for you, you spit most of it out. My wife Debi is generally of the firm opinion that its mortally sinful to spit out anything that costs $500 a bottle, but it didnt take us long to realize that if we swilled down the 17 different glasses they poured at 9 in that first morning session, wed never make it up the escalator to lunch, even if the steps did move by themselves. Well, we got through the four premium Champagnes they gave us first, then a few red wines from Australia, four other weird wines that wed never heard of, and seven California Zinfandels, discharging at least some of it into the Styrofoam cups that were provided for our expectorating enjoyment. (This spitting thing is a quiet and discreet procedure. Its considered unmannerly to go for distance.) As we smiled our way into the lunch session, we noticed a gratifying amount of good will flowing among the participants, partly because we were all sharing a mutual interest and a great adventure, and partly because most of them seem to have ignored those Styrofoam cups. Besides, even if you do spit, the membranes of the mouth and tongue absorb enough alcohol to make everyone chatty and intelligent lunch companions. After lunch, it was back to the ballroom for the afternoon seminars, which thankfully involved sipping and sampling only one variety of wine 12 glasses of it from 12 different vintages. Good thing they gave us a two-hour break before the evening grand tasting, because when you encounter 250 wineries in the Broadway Ballroom pouring the finest stuff they have to offer, you make a heroic effort to sample as much as you can. That was Friday. We did the whole thing over again, with different rare and delightful wines on Saturday, plus the black-tie banquet. Two and a half days. Almost 18,000 bottles of wine. I cant even imagine how many glasses were used, and washed, and used again. (Somebody at the hotel told me they used so many glasses that they trucked them from midtown Manhattan to Hoboken to wash them, but that turned out to be a lie.) Sure, we found new tastes and new wines well definitely start trying the second we win the Powerball. We made new friends, too, because wine lovers tend to be a convivial group, especially after breakfasting on six glasses of Zinfandel. But mostly what we discovered about wine is something we already knew and something that most wine enthusiasts realize sooner or later. Yes, wine is a mysterious and ancient beverage; the Romans even said that there is truth in it. But its not really about the wine, or how much it costs. Its about the occasion, the location and the companionship. So find some companions and try a few of our latest discoveries from South Africa. Solms Delta Chenin Blanc Western Cape 2016 ($13) If youre in the market for Chenin Blanc, you cant go wrong with the bottles coming out of South Africa. Very true to type, with lemon, orange, and splashes of white flowers, peach and apricot. And some green apple, too. This wine is a steal at the price. WW 89-90. Mullineux Kloof Street Old Vine Chenin Blanc Swartland 2015 ($25) Not your typical Chenin Blanc, but interesting even so. This bright lemonyellow wine will give you a nose of faint citrus, but pays off on the palate with vanilla (which is due to the partial fermentation in oak), and nicely balanced lemon, melon, pears, and grass flavors. A good sipping wine. WW 89. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club. His book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer, is available through his website.

CALL FOR RESERVATIONS CUISINEFuse melds global flavors in ways that make sense and great dishesWhen Greg Scarlatos opened Fuse Global Cuisine, most of us knew his abilities with Italian fare, with which he made his mark at Angelinas Ristorante in Bonita Springs, but his flights of fancy with other cuisines proved to be both surprising and delightful. He blends ingredients, flavors and textures with imagination but also with a firm understanding of what should and shouldnt go together. The shouldnt part is every bit as important as the should, and its something not everyone who tries their hand at the amorphous concept of fusion does successfully. And so, four years after he and his life/business partner Monika Czechowska struck out on their own, they have built a restaurant where customers can count on a meal that will titillate the taste buds, cocktails that are current and inventive, a solid wine list, an excellent waitstaff and a lovely, comfortable dining room. It will not be an inexpensive meal, but I believe the value of what customers receive is at least equal to the price they pay, which isnt something I can always say about Naples establishments. Another plus: You can sample dishes from various parts of the globe at one location and one meal. Youll find kangaroo carpaccio as well as quail and waffles on offer among the appetizers, and stick-to-yourribs dishes like wild boar and a 16-ounce bone-in ribeye among the entrees. Although it isnt on the menu, our server let us know that a vegetarian plate is also available. A bottle of 2014 Ridge Three Valleys Sonoma County ($57) started the meal off nicely. It was properly chilled and the blend of zinfandel (60 percent) with smaller amounts of petite sirah, carignan and Grenache had a complex aroma with notes of vanilla, smoke and rose, and lots of fruit on the palate along with enough tannins to balance out the cherry, plum and berries. Warm, crusty rolls and salted olive oil arrived at about the same time. Id suggest refraining from eating these if you can, as portions are generous (I cant say we did as I suggest, nor were we sorry). The menu has changed over the years, but the wildly popular hog wings remain. Crisp braised pork foreshanks, chili-tamarind hoisin sauce, toasted sesame seed, chopped green onions and julienned peppadew make for a lively and satisfying appetizer for pork lovers. Seafood lovers definitely get their due, too. A huge bowl of PEI mussels ($16) were lightly sauted and bathed in a creamy blend of garlic, white wine, herbs and spices, topped with red pepper rouille and grilled crostini. The mussels were tender and tasty, made even more so by the velvety sauce. Mr. Scarlatos version of the Thai soup, tom gha ($9), was also a revelation. I eat Thai food weekly and have tried this soup at just about every Thai restaurant Ive patronized over the past three decades. This version was thick and rich, with a coconut-infused shrimp stock, mushrooms, red bell peppers, tomatoes and two plump pink gulf shrimp in the middle. The soup was thick, rich and slightly sweet, with just a hint of spicy heat. Depending on whats fresh and available, Mr. Scarlatos features a different fish with a Thai preparation. On this evening, it was corvina ($38). Pan-roasted, it was served in a layered fashion with sauted Swiss chard, almondjasmine rice, coconut green curry, sour tamarind coulis and fiery green papaya slaw. The fish had a lightly crisp exterior but was still moist within. It sat on a pool of the cream green curry, mild rice and a layer of chard, the coulis and papaya slaw on top. It was a dish with a lot of parts, but they worked well together, even the spicy slaw, which is not for the faint of palate. For a more Latin flavor, consider the pan-seared diver scallops with mojo pork belly, a montage of U-10 diver scallops roasted then paired with braised heritage pork belly. They are arranged into an intricate pattern with spice black bean ragout, roasted poblano crema, roasted maduros and tomato-avocado-corn relish. This was an extremely rich dish. After the soup (and those darned rolls), it proved more than I could handle. I ate about half of it and was full. Both the pork and scallops were properly cooked. I like the sweetness of the maduros and the tang of the crunchy relish but could have done without the mild crema and about half the ragout. Full though we were, dessert beckoned. We skipped the Ghirardelli pig, a chocolate bacon brownie with sea salt caramel and ice cream. Instead, we tried the brown butter Bulliet ($9), a brown butter cake liberally laced with Bulleit bourbon, topped with a thick cinnamon raisin praline sauce and finished with vanilla ice cream. The cake was tender and moist with a delicious bourbon flavor, the sauce intensely sweet but balanced out by the cool vanilla bean ice cream. Ms. Czechowska says it reminds her of a cake her grandmother used to make in Poland. I should note that from the outside, the restaurant looks as if it might be closed for construction as the building management is working on the faade. Never mind that. Its open, and once inside you will find a nicely appointed dining room with tables set with white tablecloths and black napkins, tasteful geometric artwork on the walls, a roomy bar and a staff that doesnt miss a beat. Ms. Czechowska does a terrific job of overseeing the bar and making sure guests feel welcome and are happy. Like the food and beverages here, she and Mr. Scarlatos are a fusion that works admirably.

And interior designer Pamela Durkin knows how to ask the right questions of her clients. Luxe Livings Michael Korb talked to Ms. Durkin about her craft and how she approaches each project. Q: Was there a moment you knew you wanted to be an interior designer? A: I have known since I was 15 that I wanted to be an interior designer. I realized right away that it blended a cool combination of creative and technical skills, two things that resonated with me. My mother loved to sew and she taught me to look closely at how things are constructed, what details make for a well-made piece. I love design and I know how powerful it can be. It can literally change someones life and that is a pretty cool profession to be a part of. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: After taking a class in high school, I decided to major in interior design in college. I have a degree in interior design and believe you are always learning and refining your craft. I take continuing education courses for my state license and LEED accreditation. I have been a designer for 25 years and I still love to learn new things. Q: What is the greatest challenge an interior design faces on any given project? A: What someone wants versus what they need can be two very different things. Often clients are hiring a designer for the first time and they may have SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 brings sophistication and versatility to every spaceCOURTESY PHOTOSDESIGNER Q&AAn age-old question when it comes to interiors is what to do with a big white wall.

They see designs they like in a magazine or a model home and think thats what they want for themselves. I use some techniques to get to know them so that in the end their home delights them, works for them and is better than they could have imagined on their own. Q: What are some of the things you ask clients when you first meet them? A: What is the one luxury that you have always wanted but havent gotten around to getting? Tell me about your favorite vacation, most cherished childhood memory, the best time youve ever had in your life. These answers provide clues as to where we need to go with the design. Working on a home is an exciting time, and I want to be the person to give them all they have dreamed of and more. Q: Is there a trend that you are excited to see return? (Or, if not, is there one that you want to see disappear ASAP?) A: I love that people are embracing their uniqueness. Mixing old and new, modern and traditional, the rules for the perfect interior have blurred. Gone is the world of everything has to match, and we are free to mix materials and styles, as long as they ring true to us. We realize how much a home can support our well-being for a great life, providing what is really important to those who live there.

6 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYRANDALL PERRY PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAging condominiums are the gift that keeps on giving to area interior designers as new buyers continue to flock to the beauty of Naples and its surrounds. And that means sometimes a home purchase requires saying goodbye to Reagan-era kitchens and Gorbachevinspired wall colors. That was the case for the Boston-area purchasers of this now-lovely, two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,750-square-foot beachfront condo in Pelican Bay. Though the homeowners had been visiting the area for years, this is their first purchase and they couldnt be more pleased. In fact, during their many years of visits, they went through countless model homes, searching for just the right space. And in one they particularly liked, they grabbed the business card of the interior designer: Jinx McDonald Interior Designs. How much did they like that place? So much the wife kept that business card in her purse for 14 years. What happened when they finally closed on this property? They called me immediately and said Do whatever you want to do, says Ms. McDonald. So along with design associate Janine Blume, Ms. McDonald set out to bring the space into the 21st century. The kitchen cabinets were a yellowed wood and there was carpet throughout, Ms. Blume says. There was flat pink and forest green upholstery. It was just kind of 980s Grandma. You know the look. It was the setting of a possible turf war between Hummel and Precious Moments figurines. The project was a complete gut. The goal was lightening, brightening and freshening it up, Ms. McDonald says. Because its not a large space, we used all-white cabinetry to help it feel open and light. Then we ran a new wood-look driftwood grey porcelain tile throughout, including onto the lanai. So when you have the sliders open the inside comes out and expands the space. They even removed a wall from what was a galley kitchen to open things up and dramatically change the feel of the unit. But its the addition of color that makes the home stand out. Beautiful aquas and blues and turquoises pop from every room. Ms. McDonald and her team won a 2017 Sand Dollar Award for Best Whole House RemodelCondo for it. They wanted the outside to come inside their home, says Ms. Blume. The beach colors and the jewel tones and sea glass shades all merge here. Much of the homes specific inspiration can be traced directly to the large oil painting that hangs in the living room. You see the energy from that crashing wave? says Ms. McDonald. It wasnt just the colors, it was also the energy. And we feel it throughout the home, which has definitely gone from 1980s Grandma to energetic and and happy. Thats what the client said when she first walked in: This place is happy! Ms. McDonald says. For everyone except, perhaps, Reagan and Gorbachev.

8 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf you look up discerning in the dictionary you could very well find the owners of this lovely golf course condominium in Talis Park. They looked at Naples properties for 10 years before finally pulling the trigger on this three-bedroom-plus-den, 3-bath beauty that encompasses 2,900 square feet. They fell in love with the North Naples community and almost purchased a single-family home there years ago, but that wasnt meant to be. However, the interior designer on that place, Kelsey Talis of Design West, was available to help make this condo into the home of their dreams. We like the open concept and lighter, transitional look, says the homeowner. And we loved how (Design West) had laid out the other property, so we knew we were with the right people. The surprisingly large unit was originally designed to allow for a dining area between the kitchen and great room, but the homeowners knew from past experience that theyd prefer expanding the conversation area in the living room, and so they nixed the dining area.Talis Park condo overlooks golf course and underscores styleTop: The cozy den is perfectly proportioned thanks to the oversized credenza custom designed by Kelsey Talis of Design West. On the cover: In this gol ng family of seven, the outdoor living area overlooking four holes of the Talis Park golf course is everybodys favorite spot. Where better to relax after 18 holes or enjoy dinner than on a lanai so close to the action youre basically always working on your short game?BLAINE JOHNATHAN / COURTESY PHOTOSCOVER STORYFAMILY FRIENDLY and BEAUTIFUL

Right: The great room is a wonderful conversation area thanks to comfortable seating designed to accommodate everyone in this family of seven. A crane was required to lift the mirrored credenza in this room and also the one in the den (facing page) into the unit. Subdued hues mix beautifully with sparkling metallics in the luxurious master suite. A backsplash of glass tiles goes from oor to ceiling in the kitchen and breakfast nook/wet bar area. FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 2017 LUXE LIVING 9We are a family of seven and we tend to dine out or dine outside, says the homeowner. We just felt like multiple dining options made no sense, so we added a large dining area out on the lanai to take advantage of the great view. (The lanai overlooks four holes of the Talis Park course, ideal for this golf-loving clan.) For the large family, it just made more sense to allow for expanded comfortable seating in the living area rather than for formal dining room chairs that would get little use. Luckily, the space easily accommodates that. Nothing in the unit seems cramped. In fact, the mirrored credenza in the great room was custom built to fit that wall. Its perhaps the largest youll ever see, says Ms. Talis. It had to be lifted up into the unit with a crane because it couldnt fit in the stairwell or elevator. A similar credenza in the den needed the same delivery approach. The inconvenience was totally worth it, as both are statement pieces that ground some fairly large rooms. Ms. Talis sophisticated interior styling helped bring things to scale. The 10-foot ceilings in the great room and breakfast nook are inset with a subtle taupe/gray silvery metallic wallpaper thats both elegant and fun. A similar treatment made its way to the guest bedrooms, which were designed with the homeowners adult children in mind. Ms. Talis placed two queen-sized beds in one bedroom that has been designated for the homeowners sons. Thats a really big guest bedroom, says Ms. Talis. It has a bit more of a masculine tone to it (compared to the other guest bedroom). The room uses darker hues, including a navy blue grass cloth on the ceiling and bronze hardware on the light fixtures offset by pops of coral in the drapery and artwork. In the magazine-ready master bedroom, metallic glitz works its way from the top down: The designer used a crushed, pearlized mica wall covering on the ceiling, which dazzles in the light. That area was meant to be a little more glamorous, Ms. Talis allows. The bachelor chests on either side of the bed are finished in a platinum metallic with a champagne tone that helps pull in some warmer shades of the room. As the master suite, it should feel a little bit more high-end, even though they wanted to keep the design relatively casual, the designer believes. The lamps in the master light normally but also illuminate from within and feature an hombre finish that mimics art on the wall sparkling champagne and gold on top which drips down into silvers, light blues and grays. Its fun when you find a piece that speaks so perfectly to the design, says Ms. Talis. (Design West) was very good about mixing texture and dimension in fabric and material, the happy homeowner says. Our meetings with them were very smooth and very quick. I would say 90 percent of what they selected we liked right out of the gate. Meanwhile, in the kitchen and breakfast nook, expanded backsplashes feature an opaque glass tile in a herringbone pattern that climbs to the ceiling. It even made its way to the base of the large peninsula. Its a terrific visual upgrade compared to neighboring units. In fact, its easy to see how this home was worth waiting for.

10 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIts safe to say that Naples has had a look for a long time. And though were finally veering away from that heavy Italian air and are moving into the cleaner lines of transitional, Patina Collection, which just moved to its new location in the Design District at 944 Fifth Ave. N., is letting customers know there is another option: the romance of ethereal, organic European. It sounds complicated. But its beauty is in its simple sophistication. The untrained eye might rush to label it shabby chic, but its far more interesting and elegant. Its European farmhouse chic featuring subdued palettes and natural materials. Owner Karen Abells vision for the store came after countless trips to Europe, visiting the grand flea markets in Paris, the weekend markets in Provence and falling love with the architecture and design from Italy, particularly the Amalfi Coast. Previously on Taylor Road, the new location, which celebrates its grand opening from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, features the same boutique feel and warehouse vibe. This is a living, breathing space that creates emotion, says Ms. Abell. It is a rarified space grounded somewhere SHOP TALKPatina Collection brings ethereal European to Naples TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY European farmhouse chic might sound like words just thrown haphazardly together until you walk into the new home of Patina Collections, which celebrates it grand opening from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16.

between the authentic and the ethereal. Everything in the store is carefully curated to provide customers with oneof-a-kind pieces, antique finds and covetable items, with a focus on objects that are exclusive to the store. To complete its lifestyle concept, Patina Collection has added a tabletop area featuring both fine and casual china and glassware, and a bedding section that draws from the look and feel of the store. It really feels like a lifestyle brand. Ms. Abell and her team at Patina Collection take special care in selecting exclusive and innovative brands in deciding how to stock the store and what experiences those items should evoke. Curation is our focus, she says, whether it occurs while searching for new brands to bring to our store or during a design project. We believe in the juxtaposition of antiques alongside our private label and contemporary furnishings. Our aesthetic focuses on subdued palettes, abundant light and natural materials to elevate your quality of life. And its safe to say that the uniqueness of the items offered at the store helped it gain a strong network and loyal following. In fact, thanks to demand, the store now offers a full-service interior design studio, Patina Design. Led by veteran designer Wanda Pfeiffer, a Florida registered interior designer, the design side offers complete interior design services, including space planning, furnishing and finish selections, window treatments, CAD drawings and project management for residential and commercial projects.
