The bill has received a torrent of support by the Florida House of Representatives, including Republican Majority Leader Rob Rodrigues, R-Fort Myers. I believe the bill will pass the house, Rep. Rodrigues said. (House Speaker Richard Corcoran) indicated his support for the bill, it has leadership support its been five years. Thats five years worth of data to review.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY M A T T E R moments Every room holds quiet anticipation of being lived in. v e di n di sarasotapinellas parkfort myerstarpon springsnaplesmatterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYSighting inMy late father came from New York State Albany, on the Hudson River about 150 miles north of the Big Apple. Sometime after World War II he traveled to Colorado and got lucky: He met my mother, now 90 and part of my household. The Nash ranch where she grew up and introduced him was a big, thriving cattle operation right through my youth. Guns were part of it tools given no exceptional status and all five daughters could shoot, just like their brothers. They could also build fence, chop wood, haul water, cook, wash the dishes, ride and help feed, chase or brand cows. The Nash ranch was the center of a universe and an ethical view that created my mother, helped shape me and steadied my father as he matured and calmed down a little, in life. I was thinking about all this the other day when Amy and I gave my 15-yearold son a bolt-action, .22 magnum rifle with a nine-round rotary clip. Sturm, Ruger & Co. makes the gun, the American they call it, in New Hampshire. The bullet is bigger than a standard .22 long-rifle round with which Ive shot both mule deer and whitetails from close range. Daddy taught me that skill, putting a rifle in my hands the first time when I was 5. Although he grew up having to drag his father out of Albany bars on occasion, he could also get on a city bus before school with his 16-guage shotgun or a .22, ride to the edge of town, and hunt rabbits or pheasants. That was common then in towns all over the United States, Ive been told. At the ranch, wed spend an hour or two slipping up on the prey from a distance, then killing it from 30 or 40 yards with a single, well-placed round fired from a gun considered a plinker by most shooters. The .22 can kill a moose if the shooter knows what hes doing, so Daddy tended to avoid the heaviercaliber options in the gun room. We skinned, cleaned and secured the meat we shot, then lived on it all year. In a process that usually took a couple of days, my parents sliced everything off the carcass, put the choice cuts in a chest full of ice, then chunked the rest in one-inch-or-so squares. Then they browned and canned the meat in quart Bell jars set in a big tub of boiling water on a wood-and-coal stove. Hundreds of jars, over time. For years I never wanted to see another piece of canned venison, and neither did my sister who could also shoot. Later, I passed the basic shooting skills onto my sons, teaching my youngest in the Florida scrub when he was 9 or 10. Now a few years on he has his own first rifle, the .22 mag. The magnum round is more potent than the .22 long-rifle, generally giving you about 2,000 feet per second of muzzle velocity hitting at roughly 1,300 fps 100 yards out. The round drops just over an inch at that range; theres zero drop at 50 yards. If Nash and I shoot anything, therefore say a wild hog up in the scrub, if we cant find the meat department at Publix or Winn-Dixie the magnum with a little extra punch is what we want. Getting the rifle for Nash has been on my mind for a few years because shooting is not just shooting. My son also needs to know how to clean it, skin it and preserve the meat after he shoots it. And he needs to know how to keep his weapons in faultless condition. Ive had long-standing, mostly unspoken questions, however, about any process or ethic that starts with the purchase of a rifle. They came to a head last week when Nash and I discovered the new weapon was not perfectly sighted in. So we made some adjustments and did it. But what were we really sighting in on, I began to wonder food, selfsufficiency and the bullseye? Well, no, not with the new Ruger. The answer had become apparent when three or four slicked-up brochures from the National Rifle Association fell out of the gun box. The people who run the NRA are anti-American money-grubbers, in my view. They sell patriotism and independence in a pill of paranoia so people will rush out to buy Rugers or any other gun especially faux military weapons commonly used by murderous wackos in schools, churches, theaters, nightclubs and at country-music concerts in Vegas. This doesnt faze the NRA, or Ruger. In August 2016, with the presidential race really heating up, the company did a $5 million match campaign for the NRAs lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action. That followed Rugers Million Gun Challenge that raised $4 million ($2 for every gun purchased) for the NRA-ILA. And so on. The NRA claims government seeks to take away our weapons and abolish the Second Amendment. Thats demonstrably false, a fabrication spun from fear-mongering. The NRA insists only a good person with a gun can stop a bad person with a gun. Thats clichd nonsense; the way to stop mass shootings is to keep these faux military guns especially, or any others, out of the hands of wackos in the first place. The NRA suggests patriotism is a gun-wielding, flag-flying virtue. What utter horse-pucky. Patriots carry guns only in the most extreme circumstances. So now what? Ill tell you what: Ill be sighting in on good effective gun control, in 2018. Ill teach my son how to hit that target, too, with either hand, in a strong wind, at any range. r w d o b g roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

That is, if youre Asian and follow the Chinese zodiac. It rotates between the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. And as I mentioned, 2018 is a Dog year. Thats a good thing, particularly when us Westerners remember Harry Trumans bromide: If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog. But I was surprised to find out Donald Trumps birthdate also had the Dog as its sign, considering my affection for puppies. Obviously, he was so mistreated that he turned dangerously ferocious. His Christmas Day astrology fortune, by the way, was, The Year of the Earth Dog 2018 is a good time for lifestyle changes (time to quit smoking or change residence) and for the start of new business ventures. He doesnt smoke, but while the Chinese are probably happy with his ineptitude in the face of their intimidation, millions of Americans might embrace the change residence. For those who havent given up on impeachment, perhaps theyll be fascinated to know that Robert Muellers Asian birth sign is the Monkey. His 2017 Christmas Day horoscope is: Stay on track today. Refuse to quit or be distracted. You know whats important no matter what others think or say. Its important to not let the words or actions of negative people discourage you. That will be music to the ears of Trumps enemies, although its probably advice thats wasted on Mueller, who is already known to be methodically relentless in every pursuit hes undertaken. His latest pursuit, of course, is that of Donald Trump, or certainly those around the president. Hes not only investigating the possibility of campaign collusion with Vladimir Putins Russian government chicanery in contributing to Trumps victory, but any crime that arises as hes fact-finding. Already hes drawn enough blood that Republicans are trying to discredit him. Theyre using every trick they can muster to leave an impression that Muellers people are too politically biased to be fair. What Bob Mueller has demonstrated is a persistent prosecutors bias, which is to say that everyone is suspect until they show otherwise. But Trumps supporters are really trying to manufacture a public case against him. Its obviously an attempt to clear the way for him to fire Mueller if the flames get too close to Trump or family members. The president says repeatedly that he has no such plans, but Donald Trump is not known for being a man of his word. The whole firing scenario is so transparent to many of POTUS adversaries that theyve awoken from their stupor. They are advance-planning street protests. Former Attorney General Eric Holder calls any ouster of Mueller a red line, but there have been so many red lines that Trump has crossed that its unclear whether Holders declaration holds any significance. Actually, 2018 is not just the Dog, but its the year that every governing process will be dogged by the elections. Its the midterm that will preoccupy Washington, D.C., with tentacles stretching to many states and also every congressional district in the land. Thousands of politicians will be forever calculating all things Trump. Like it or not, hes the big dog in this years campaign. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Nancy Pelosis tax apocalypseTo listen to the Democrats, the American middle class will be lucky to survive the Republican tax bill. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calls the bill monumental, brazen theft from the American middle class, and thats one of her more restrained comments. Per Pelosi, the bill is an affront to the Founding Fathers, veterans, children and all thats good and true in America. She constantly charges that the bill raises taxes on 86 million middle-class households, and hands a breathtaking 83 percent of its benefits to the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. This is a rhetorically potent line of attack that the polling suggests has made considerable headway. It just isnt remotely honest. The Republican bill is, every factual analysis agrees, an acrossthe-board tax cut. Pelosis seemingly damning factoids come from the year 2027, an odd date to focus on, since its not when the bill goes into effect, but when part of it lapses. In about 10 years, many of the tax cuts on the individual side expire, which Pelosi portrays as a Republican plot to loot the middle class. Its a very strange argument against passing a bill to say horrible things will happen once the legislation no longer fully applies. This is more logically a case for extending the bill than for blocking it. Indeed, its almost certain the middle-class provisions would eventually be preserved. What is, by the way, this looming middle-class wasteland in 2027? Pelosi relies on the liberal Tax Policy Center for her figures. As that outfit puts it, on average, in 2027 taxes would change little for lowerand middle-income groups. Oh. Theres a reason Pelosi doesnt want to focus on the numbers when the tax bill she so vociferously opposes is fully in effect. In 2018, 80.4 percent of tax units get a tax cut, averaging $2,140. A grand total of 4.8 percent will see a tax increase. The small percentage of people with higher taxes is disproportionately tilted toward the top of the income scale. Its true that upper-income people get a bigger tax cut in terms of absolute dollars than anyone else, for the simple reason that the wealthy tend to pay more in taxes than anyone else, as Brian Riedl of the Manhattan Institute points out. The tax bill is hardly invulnerable to criticism. Even if Republicans dont always like to admit it, corporate tax cuts are at the heart of the bill. They arent popular, but they are pro-growth. There used to be a bipartisan consensus encompassing Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton that we needed corporate tax reform. Then theres the deficit. Republicans can fairly be taken to task for budget gimmicks (like the expiration of the individual tax cuts) that squeeze a much bigger tax cut into a $1.5 trillion, 10-year window. All things being equal, economic growth will diminish some of the revenue loss. But the bill couldve been smaller and added less to the deficit. Its impossible to say how the tax bill will play in the midterms. Whats certain is that, contra Pelosi, the middle class will emerge intact, and with a lower tax bill.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Miami, Orlando, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Key West, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale and Bradenton. WalletHub ranked the 111 largest Florida cities from best to worst on retiree friendliness based on three main categories: Quality of life, Health Care and Activities. Each city was given an individual score in each category as well as overall rank. Cities with lower populations such as Naples, Marco Island, and Punta Gorda were left off the list. In all, 28 variables were weighed, including affordability, the weather and crime; the numbers of health care facilities and doctors, volunteer activities and cultural opportunities such as theaters and museums, and golf and fishing spots available. Other cities where Florida Weekly is distributed that received WalletHub rankings are Jupiter (14), Palm Beach Gardens (21), Bonita Springs (27), Cape Coral (31), Estero (42), Port Charlotte (56), North Fort Myers (84) and Lehigh Acres (107). Troy M. McLellan, president and CEO of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, is happy to take recognition as a top retirement destination with a grain of salt. He points out the city also includes a robust business community, and that sunny weather, a vibrant cultural scene, and plenty of health care choices are desirable at any age. I think the beauty is retirees want to move here and other great places that have great quality of life, great health care, great amenities, he said, but we certainly dont lose sight of why everybody else wants to move here too: thats professionals, thats young families our downtown thats getting a more urban feel that attracts more Millennials. DeAngelis Diamond, a Naples-based construction company, is building new senior and assisted living communities in South Florida including Thrive at Naples, and Amavida, a 32-acre resort-style community in Fort Myers. Both are scheduled to open next year. The trend that were seeing in senior housing is really the shift toward luxury resort-style living as opposed to a traditional senior assisted living facility thats more focused on the care, said Craig Bryant, executive project manager. I see these newer facilities really targeting the more active, younger senior than they have in the past. Amenities such as swimming pools, walking trails and nearby beaches draw residents along with the most important one, the weather. Yesterday was the perfect example, Mr. Bryant said. It was 84 degrees a couple of days after Christmas. WalletHubs Health Care category looked at the number of health care choices available in a given area, including the numbers of in-home care, dentists and nurses, a factor in Fort Myers high score along with its downtown entertainment district, theaters and galleries. In Lee County, we have lots of opportunities to pursue an active lifestyle, good access to preventative medicine, and top doctors using the latest technology, said Larry Antonucci, president and CEO of Lee Health, which runs six hospitals and other health care facilities in the Lee County and Fort Myers area. While some retirees want to move to a sunny place with warm weather, they need to consider they will be dealing with health issues as they age. We are fortunate locally that we have a vibrant health system in addition to mild weather. There are plenty of second opinions on how cities are ranked. WalletHubs own nationwide list of 150 best and worst places to retire this year, ranked Cape Coral at 13, much higher than its state rank. It gave the top three spots in the United States to Orlando, Tampa and Miami, and ranked Newark, New Jersey last. Like the state scores, WalletHub picked the largest 150 cities in the U.S. to compare, so less populous ones such as Sarasota were left off it. Port Charlotte was given a meh score by WalletHubs state list while Forbes named it among its top 25 retirement destinations in the U.S. in 2017, which are unranked. The areas low cost of living is not at the expense of programs for seniors, said Stephen Carter, executive director of the Cultural Center of Charlotte C ounty in Port Char lottes growing Parkside neighborhood. Besides area fishing and bicycling opportunities, he pointed out, there are hundreds of dif-RETIREFrom page 1 WalletHubs Top 10 Places to Retire in the U.S., 2017>> Orlando >> Tampa >> Miami >> Scottsdale, Arizona >> Atlanta, Georgia >> Salt Lake City, Utah >> Honolulu, Hawaii >> Denver, Colorado >> Austin, Texas >> Las Vegas, Nevada Sources: WalletHub and U.S. Census Bureau for population and 2012-2016 median home value and median rentCities not ranked>> Punta Gorda not ranked by WalletHub due to population Pop. 18,796 Median home value: $299,900 Median rent: $860 >> Naples not ranked by WalletHub due to population Pop. 21,845 Median home value: $770,000 Median rent: $1,189 >> Marco Island not ranked by WalletHub due to population Pop. 17,847 Median home value: $492,000 Median rent: $1,437 #8 #1FORTMYERS>> Overall rank: 8 >> Quality of Life: 10 >> Health Care: 10 >> Activities: 12 >> Population 77,146 >> Median home value: $160,800 >> Median rent: $851SARASOTA>> Overall rank: 1 >> Quality of Life: 1 >> Health care: 1 >> Activities: 8 >> Population: 56,610 >> Median home value: $190,500 >> Median rent: $951AFEWOFTHETOPTENPLACESTORETIREINFLORIDA

The centers theater hosts national and local musicians and performers. Youve got a lot of things to do, daytime, nighttime, youve got the weather, and youve got an area where your cost isnt as high to live in as a lot of other areas of Florida, Mr. Carter said. We are in that position to uniquely offer a lot for less money than a lot of these other areas. One things the rankings cant take into account is personal taste. Do you favor the laid-back vibes of Fort Myers Beach where you can grab a enna tattoo and listen to an acoustic guitarist strum Boomer generation hits, or the austere beauty of Tigertail Beach on Marco Island, whose sprawling white sand vista leaves space for solitude even on a moderately crowded day? This year the foremost ranker of beaches, Dr. Beach, named Siesta Key in Sarasota as his No. 1 pick in the U.S. out of 10. (Hes also known as professor Stephen P. Leatherman, director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University in Miami). Whatever you like, WalletHubs rankings are meant to help people find out where to get the most bang for their buck in their golden years, said Jill Gonzalez, an analyst for the website. It helps that in addition to the clement weather Florida also has no income tax. Retirement confidence declined in 2017, with nearly four in 10 American workers having little or no money saved for their golden years, Ms. Gonzalez said. Readers should look at these studies as guidelines which can help them plan for a comfortable retirement without breaking the bank, all dependent on where they live.

All-American weirdosTwo American tourists, Joseph Dasilva, 38, and Travis Dasilva, 36, of San Diego, were arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, on Nov. 28 and detained in an immigration detention center after they posted a butt-self ie on Instagram, taken in front of the Buddhist temple Wat Arun, or Temple of the Dawn. The pairs Instagram account, traveling butts, showcased their hindquarters at tourist sites around the world, but it was deleted shortly after the arrests. District police chief Jaruphat Thongkomol told Reuters that the two would also be fined for a similar photo at a different temple.But why?In Birmingham, England, renowned 53-year-old surgeon Simon Bramhall pleaded guilty on Dec. 13 to branding his initials onto human livers using an argon beam during transplant surgeries. A colleague first noticed the initials S.B. in 2013 on an organ during a follow-up surgery, which sparked an investigation, The Guardian reported. Bramhall resigned in 2014 and acknowledged that marking his patients livers had been a mistake. But former patient Tracy Scriven of Dyrham, Wiltshire, told the Birmingham Mail that he should be reinstated. Is it really that bad? I wouldnt have cared if he did it to me. The man saved my life.Inept Santa movesJesse Berube, 32, of Rocklin, Calif., tried using a favorite trick of Old St. Nick but he got stuck in the chimney of a Citrus Heights business he was trying to rob on Dec. 13 and had to call police for help. ABC News reported that Sacramento firefighters responded and used special equipment to free Berube, who now faces one count of burglary. Citrus Heights police said Berube does not have the same skills as the real deal.The checks in the mailLorette Taylor of Burlington, Ontario, Canada, responsible for meting out her familys inheritance after her fathers death, sent a bank draft last February to her brother, Louis Paul Hebert, for $846,648.46 via UPS. Hebert waited at his local UPS store for the check to arrive but nothing came in. I came back in the evening. Nothing shows up, he told the CBC. UPS could trace the package only to its distribution center north of Toronto, so along with an apology for Heberts inconvenience, UPS refunded the $32 shipping fee. Taylors bank, TD Canada Trust, initially assured her the check would be canceled, but two days later refused to issue a new draft until Taylor signed an indemnity agreement making her and her heirs liable for life should the original check be cashed. Not only that, the bank then asked her to put up collateral against the new bank draft, but that request was later recalled. Finally, 10 months after the whole ordeal began, the bank released the money, and Hebert, at press time in December, was making the 273-mile drive to pick up the check in person.Channeling Mike TysonBritish model Chloe Hammond, 27, also known as Chloe Rebelle, succumbed to a fit of road rage on March 19 when Julie Holloway, 56, tapped on her car window to ask her to stop using her phone while driving in traffic in London. Metro News reports that Hammond responded by parking her Audi TT and then came out of nowhere toward Holloway, kicking her in the stomach, grabbing Holloways hair and biting off a piece of her ear. Holloway, bloodied and disturbed, didnt realize part of her ear was missing until someone picked it up off the floor. In October, Hammond was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm with intent in Southwark Crown Court, and on Dec. 18, a judge sentenced her to five years in jail.InexplicableDont you ever just want to get away? An unnamed man in Catherine Way, Batheaston, England, started digging a very deep hole in his yard weeks ago, but caused a neighborhood disruption when he climbed into the hole on Dec. 12 and refused to come out. Neighbor Dominic Denny told the Bath Chronicle that it started at about 4 a.m. ... when there was a lot of shouting and screaming coming from the house opposite me. The young mans family was outside trying to get him back in the house. Emergency responders from a variety of services converged on the scene, even bringing a crane to lower into the hole to retrieve the man. A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset police later reported that the incident was resolved and the man got out of the hole of his own accord.Special deliveryAn employee at a TCBY yogurt shop in Matthews, N.C., got a surprise while opening three packages delivered to the store filled with $220,000 worth of marijuana. Upon further investigation, the store told WSOC-TV, the packages had been delivered mistakenly and were meant for a P.O. Box at the postal store next door. The drugs and the recipients information have been turned over to police, who report that no arrests have been made.

Guests at the Discover Mentoring program will meet and hear from mentors and staff of the Guadalupe Centers Tutor Corps Program. More than 20 promising new students enter the program each year so they can be tutors to kindergartenthrough second-grade students each day after school, earn up to $4,000 in college scholarship money and be paired with an adult mentor. Serving as a mentor requires little travel to Immokalee or financial obligation. Instead, mentors serve as listeners who offer a guiding hand to firstgeneration high school graduates who are preparing to head off to college. Mentors can make a huge impact in the lives of Immokalee students, said Dawn Montecalvo, pr esident of the center. They can become lifelong supporters, confidants and friends as these students strive for greatness. Many Tutor Corps students are the first of their families to attend college, and they benefit greatly by being paired with an adult who has experienced college firsthand and can provide valuable insight as they prepare for the next step along their educational journeys, she added. Admission to the Discover Mentoring event is $25 and includes a buffetstyle meal and cocktails at happy hour pricing. RSVPs are requested by Jan. 17 and can be made by calling 908-581-4754 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

And the list is about to get shorter. The Ford Focus RS is entering its third and final year. It might seem odd that Ford would be pulling a 350 hp mighty mouse off the market after 2018, but the hottest of the hot hatches was always meant for limited consumption. The styling is unmistakably fast, but its not for everyone. Its deep-breathing front face, rear diffuser with dual exhaust, and large spoiler on top of the hatch look aggressive to the driverfocused crowd. And the way the Brembo brake calipers stand out from the dark wheel packages will always be worth every penny. Enthusiasts know its something special, but it might take some convincing in the junior executive parking lot. After all, those who bought Audi A5s and Cadillac ATSs for the brand name recognition might not understand why this little Ford costs about the same. There is a similar situation inside. Leather-trimmed Recaro front seats are a racers dream straight from Ford. These power-adjusting body-huggers are great for performance driving, but dont expect them to fit larger body types. More importantly, they were part of an optional package in previous years and are now standard in the 2018 cars. Add in a few more extra goodies, and that moves the price from about $37K to $41,995 for the final model year. Another great speedy interior feature is the auxiliary gauge package ergonomically positioned on top of the dash and it even includes a nifty boost gauge. Still, those who just want prestige will wonder why the rest of the interior looks like any other loaded Ford Focus. And the reason why the RS is an expensive Focus with a fast-n-furious makeover is all in the engineering. It starts with the 2.3-liter motor that was given a huge turbo boost to 350 horsepower. Thats 45 more ponies than less expensive speed machines like the Subaru WRX STI and Honda Civic Type R. In fact, the Focus RS is only 20 horsepower short of the Mercedes GLA45 AMG a car that costs about $10K more. While power superiority can create value, thats not the full allure of this fast Ford. It engineered an all-wheel drive chassis that electronically adapts to multiple modes. Under normal conditions it feels sharp like a compact hatchback, and it has fine grip in wet weather. But in all three performance modes, the crispness is amplified. There is torque vectoring in the all-wheel drive that delivers rally car-level confidence, and it provides the perfect amount of feedback through the steering wheel. So its much easier to find the grip limit because the chassis feels like the drivers high-performance guru whispering through the tires. All of this comes with the control of a six-speed manual transmission. Thats key to making the Focus RS a worthwhile buy. The intoxicating feeling of a crisp downshift, a huge rush of power and gluey grip will have owners eagerly volunteering to cross the state using those two-lane backroads. A car like this also raises questions about collectability. Limited production years and limited production numbers (only 1,000 are allotted to the U.S. for 2018) mix with very capable performance. Thats a pretty good recipe for future value. We would never suggest that the Focus RS should be part of a retirement fund, and stockpiling instead of driving it should be a criminal offense in the enthusiast world. But this is the kind of vehicle youll love on the road today and will still be showing it off well after youve moved on from the junior executive parking space. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

In the years since, weve driven it to San Francisco; Seattle; Vancouver, British Columbia; Wyoming; New Mexico; Utah; Arizona; and Oklahoma. I had hoped it would last us another couple of years, but repair costs were rising higher, so last month we found ourselves in search of a new dog car. With the need to hold crates, pop-up tents and other equipment for dog shows and canine sports events, choosing the right vehicle is a matter of intense interest to members of the barkoisie. Issues such as cargo capacity, the ability to go off road to reach field trial sites, allwheel drive versus four-wheel drive, and of course gas mileage are all matters to consider when selecting a dog car. The right choice depends on the size and number of dogs and the activities in which owners and dogs participate. Auto manufacturers recognize that dog owners are an important demographic. Honda no longer makes its Element, which had a large fan base among dog owners, but at last months Los Angeles Auto Show, a team of golden and Labrador retrievers introduced Subarus threerow SUV, the 2018 Ascent. The company intentionally markets its vehicles to dog owners after a study found that more than half of Subaru owners have dogs. Hondas roomy CR-V crossover, midsize Pilot SUV and Odyssey minivan also find favor with active dog owners or people with large dogs. What do dog owners look for in a vehicle? Debbie Best of Huntington Beach, California, who lives with two flat-coated retrievers, has a long list of musts as she contemplates trading in her 190,000-mile Subaru Forester for the larger Ascent. They include a boxy shape more practical for carrying cargo and offering better visibility than the sloped rears seen on many vehicles seats that fold flat, and rear air vents. I want to know the dogs are cool, even when the car is packed, she says. Its a plus if they are on the ceiling, as they are with the Ascent. Her new vehicle must also be tall enough to hold large dog crates, with at least 44 inches between the wheel wells so she can fit two crates side by side. Allwheel drive is important for field training and trips to the mountains. Dog trainer Liz Palika of Oceanside, California, searched for five months to find just the right ride for herself and her two 50-pound English shepherds. She decided on a midsize SUV, a 2017 Toyota Highlander, that she describes as not too small, not too big. The back seats fold down, allowing her to carry two midsize dog crates and still have room for cargo. Lillian Huang of Emeryville, California, also likes the 2017 Highlander for its flat backseat floor, making it easy to accommodate folding tables, tents and canopies behind the front seats; the backup camera; and the separate air conditioning vents for the back of the car. Other factors affecting vehicle choice are a dogs age and mobility. Jill Gibbs of Billings, Montana, prefers minivans because its easier for aging dogs to get in and out of them. I bought my first one for my 12-year-old golden, she says. For advice on selecting a dog-friendly car, turn to a Facebook page called Dog Sport Vehicle Ideas. Edmunds, AutoTrader and other websites also rate cars for their canine suitability. Search dogfriendly cars for tips. In our case, were currently down to two cavaliers, but our activities have expanded to canine nose work trials, as well as many road trips to visit family. We went with another Outback, confident that it will carry us and our dogs for at least another dozen years. Their new ride holds everything these dogs need for a road trip. Pets of the Week>> Milo is a friendly 1-yearold terrier mix who loves to play but who also could nap with you all day long. In honor of the Year of the Dog, his adoption is $20.18. The same fee applies to all pups 4 months old and older. >> Mocha is a sweet and gentle 6-year-old pit bull mix who is recovering nicely from spinal surgery and is ready for her forever home. >> Kevin is a fun-loving 3-year-old Maltese mix with a great personality.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 NEWS A21 Cutting back on news consumption eases food bingeingSo, how are your New Years resolutions working out for you? Mine are going great because this year, Ive decided to give up news. I know it sounds drastic, but not nearly as drastic as pledging to run 2,018 miles, which is what one of my friends has done. Shes not running them all at once, but still. After knee surgery, a broken ankle and a mean case of plantar fasciitis, Ive finally gotten the universes message about whether I should keep trying to be a runner. Another friend resolved to give up gluten for a year not because she has celiac disease, she doesnt but her sister does and since her sister gave up gluten and lost 30 pounds, shes hoping itll work for her, too. I truly admire people who can go gluten free, because do you know what foods contain gluten? All of the really good ones. French fries, bacon, ice cream even soup. Life is too short to give up gluten if you dont have to. Another friend resolved to only drink alcohol one night of the week Fridays. Again, thats too much pressure. What if theres a party on Saturday night? A bottomless mimosa brunch on Sunday? A happy hour on Tuesday? A bad day on Wednesday? I could go on My resolution has been relatively easy in fact, I started it in early December. As a former news junkie, I thought it would be harder than its been, but its actually been a breeze. Up until a few weeks ago, my husband and I had a routine. When he got home in the evening, wed start out with the local news at 6, then the national news at 6:30. At 7, wed watch more local news on another channel, and then at 7:30 watch Inside Edition for tabloid news. I know. Two hours of unending news is way too much news. But stopping wasnt even a decision really it just sort of happened. We would have the news on, but I just quit listening. Id be busy on my iPhone either scrolling through Facebook, or playing Words with Friends, or looking up a recipe. I could hear Lester Holts voice in the background, but I didnt hear actual words. I would only sit up and take notice when my husband would yell at the TV (usually about once every five minutes). HE TWEETED WHAT?! or Did you hear that? Does he think the White House is a freaking REALITY SHOW?! or This idiot is going to get us all KILLED! and then wed have to rewind so that I could see whatever horrific/ridiculous/mind-blowing story Id missed. Clearly, I was slowly br eaking up with the news. Making the resolution to not watch the news came easy. That said, Im a newspaper columnist, so I wont be burying my head in the sand. Ill pay attention when I have to, but I truly believe that two hours of news five nights a week in 2017 was giving me gray hairs, wrinkles, and causing me to binge on food due to stress. 2018 will be all about less news and better health I think they go hand in hand. And the bonus is, I dont have to run, give up gluten, or drink less cheers to a happier year. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com www.oaktreedentistrynaples.com 90 Cypress Way East #20 Naples FL (Across From Sams Club) 239-596-5771 Please Join Dr. Carr in Welcoming his Associate, Dr. Hillary FreyDr. Frey is now accepting new patients!

Offer Expires 1/11/18 unless theyre committing another violation. A texting citation calls for a $30 fine plus any county fines. Its also a nonmoving violation, so no points are assessed to the drivers license unless youre in a school zone. The new bill would make texting and driving a primary offense. That means Florida law enforcement officials for the first time would be able to pull drivers over specifically for tapping away on their phones while driving. I think the timing is right, Rep. Rodrigues said. Its clear that merely making it a secondary offense did not have the impact we hoped it would. National statistics point to a marked increase in traffic fatalities in the last several years; according to the National Safety Council, from 2014 to 2016 motor vehicle deaths jumped from 35,398 to 40,200, by their estimation the largest two-year increase in more than five decades. Florida saw an even larger two-year increase, jumping from 2,501 to 3,037 traffic fatalities from 2014 to 2016, or more than 21 percent. All but four states have enacted primary offense laws for texting while driving the three besides Florida are Ohio, Nebraska and South Dakota. If Rep. Slosberg had it her way, texting and driving would be a misdemeanor or even a felony. She has personal experience to draw from; when she was a teenager, she and her twin sister were in a serious car accident; her sister died, along with four others, following grave injuries. The driver at fault was cited for reckless driving and served 13 years in prison. Sponsoring this bill continues a family tradition since that fateful night; Rep. Slosbergs father, Irv Slosberg, became a state representative in 2000 and focused most of his political life on improving Floridas traffic safety. He helped get stringent seatbelt laws passed and worked to get the Dori Slosberg Driver Education Safety Act approved by legislature in 2011, adding $5 to the cost of every traffic ticket. Proceeds go to high school driver education programs in participating counties throughout Florida. Rep. Slosberg replaced her father in District 91 when he retired from office. She recalls the night of the crash, when she woke up with a ventilator in her mouth, unable to speak, as a turning point in her life and an early inspiration for running for office. I woke up in a hospital bed. I saw my mom and dad, friends visiting me, but I didnt see my sister, she said. I had to write on my dads hand, wheres Dori? For the first time my father, whos a very vocal person, was at a loss for words. At that moment, I was glad I was on the respirator, because I wouldnt have been able to breathe. Rep. Slosberg and Rep. Toledo, who is a mother of five, hope HB33 will prevent countless families from dealing with such tragedy in the future. Were going to help make our state safer, Rep. Slosberg said. She called texting while driving an epidemic that only harsher legislation can cure. Despite the current bill not being as harsh as she hoped, its a satisfactory compromise, in her opinion. Id like to make it a misdemeanor or a felony, but Ill take a civil citation. The purpose is to send a message to the state of Florida that were no longer going to tolerate people texting and driving. This is the way were going to do it to pass legislation thats enforceable. Weve put in strict language that protects civil liberties. The officer has to inform a driver that they have a right to refuse a search of their phone. Its a privacy issue this allows drivers to maintain privacy within their phones, she said. Theres also an exception for using navigation on a mobile device, according to Rep. Slosberg. She cited the evolution of drinking and driving becoming socially acceptable, with texting while driving following a similar path. As a society, were sending the wrong message the right message is to stop the destructive behavior, Rep. Slosberg said. Put the phone away and youre not going to get pulled over or put others lives in danger. Thats the message we need to send to our kids. Could police abuse this privilege, with the ability to pull anyone over, simply at the sight of an illuminated phone? Its a concern historically theres been unjustified behavior in enforcing the traffic laws. If an officer is going to follow you long enough, theyll find a reason to pull you over, Rep. Slosberg said. We have to trust that law enforcement will act reasonably. Our job is to draft legislation; this is a policy that will save lives. Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Greg Bueno put the onus on drivers to remember that driving is a privilege, not a right. To be a responsible driver means putting 100 percent focus on driving whenever behind the wheel two hands on the wheel, two eyes on the road and your mind on driving at all times. Rep. Slosberg sees an opportunity to get it right. With the opportunity to observe how other states are enforcing texting while driving laws, it allowed Florida time to come up with uniform guidelines so that its clear and enforced properly. Her focus, however, never strays far from peoples lives. People are dying on our roadways. We have to act.

GUEST OPINIONSouthwest Floridas best and worst of 2017 BY DAVE TRECKERSelf-styled experts do it every year. Pick winners and losers. But its a useful exercise if for no other reason than to hone your thinking about what went well and what didnt. And we had plenty of both in 2017. Here are my picks. BEST Naples Winter Wine Festival The wealthy joined forces to deliver yet another wine-auction bonanza, raising more than $12 million for disadvantaged children. Rated the countrys top wine-auction charity by Wine Spectator magazine, the Naples Winter Wine Festival divided its spoils among 34 charities last year. The 2018 festival is just a few weeks away. WORST Dying citrus industry Floridas iconic groves took a double hit. Citrus greening crippled yields and Hurricane Irma finished things off, ripping fruit prematurely from the trees and driving production down 21 percent from 2016. To make matters worse, consumer demand for orange juice has fallen. Americans are drinking 48 percent less juice than in 2005. Its only a matter of time before the signature orange comes off our license plates. BEST Beach resiliency plan What else sets Florida apart? Our beaches, our main tourist attraction. For years Collier has band-aided beach erosion by hauling in sand by the truckload. Last year, county officials finally decided to do it right. Their new strategy calls for massive offshore dredging to provide up to 1 million cubic yards of sand, enough to widen the beaches and add height to the dunes, hopefully buttressing against future storms. Kudos to Naples Vice-Mayor Linda Penniman and Collier County Coastal Zone Management Director Gary McAlpin for devising this bold plan. WORST The 2017 legislative session Hobbled by internal squabbling, last years legislature compiled a dreadful record. Education spending got a slight uptick, but not enough to raise Florida above 41st among states in per-student spending. Mental health and substance abuse funding fared worse, miring the state in 49th place. Fracking legislation was ignored. Policies regulating medical marijuana got little attention, and gambling legislation was non-existent. Some money was allocated to curb pollution around Lake Okeechobee, but it was little more than a token. BEST Soaring Naples culture On the plus side, last years arts season was a rousing success. With eight different chamber concert series, Opera Naples, traveling Broadway shows and even barbershop quartets, there was something for everybody. The Baker Museum featured pop artist Robert Indiana, and the Naples Philharmonic gave us everything from Dvorak to Prokofiev to Tchaikovsky and even threw in some modern music as Tabasco sauce on the steak. A highlight was the Philharmonics marvelous production of the Messiah, a perfect kickoff to the holiday season. WORST Attempts to kill home rule Is best government the one closest to home? Some legislators didnt think so in 2017. Bills were introduced that would have (1) transferred to the state the right to regulate local businesses, (2) prevented counties from enacting ordinances that had an adverse impact on growth (as decided by Tallahassee) and (3) forced municipalities to spend down specialfund money before increasing property taxes. The good news is this preposterous legislation failed. BEST Honoring Carrie Kerskie Identity fraud cyber theft, stolen credit cards, accessed bank accounts, pilfered medical records ranks as one of the worst scourges of the past decade. One way or another, weve all been victims. The person many feel has done the most to combat this problem locally is Carrie Kerskie, director of the Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges University. For her pioneering work, she was honored by the Collier Citizens Council with the Murray Hendel Civic Achievement Award for 2017. It was recognition well deserved. WORST Fumbling economic diversification Not long ago, we were teed up for Opportunity Naples, a thoughtful growth plan for the county. Regionally, we had the Southwest Florida Economic Development Alliance. Now one is moribund and the other might as well be. Diversification is non-existent. Accelerators have been touted because there is little else to tout, but they havent delivered a thing. But not to worry. We still have tourism, agriculture and construction, our old three-legged stool. Along with Arthrex, its still delivering growth. BEST Habitat builds 2,000th home I remember some time ago hearing the late Dr. Sam Durso talk about Habitat for Humanity. His audience was a room filled with elderly northerners, cynical and disinterested. By the end of his talk, they were lined up to see how they could help. In 2017, Habitat Collier built its 2,000th home, becoming only the second U.S. Habitat for Humanity chapter to reach that milestone. WORST Hurricane Irma This pick was a no-brainer. Irma wreaked havoc on Southwest Florida indeed, on all of Florida like nothing else we have seen in a long time. Scoring a direct hit, the Category 4 storm caught Collier officials off guard and led to destruction and anguish on a massive scale. Statewide, Irma caused $6.6 billion in insured-property damage and $2.5 billion in crop losses. And this doesnt begin to count the tens of billions not covered by insurance and the crippling costs, mostly unbudgeted, borne by counties and municipalities throughout the Sunshine State. Its said this was a once-in-a-lifetime storm. Lets hope so. BEST Greater Naples is top of the heap Still a pretty good place to live? You bet. Awards and recognition continue to pour in: No. 1 in the country in wellbeing and per-capita income. No. 4 in the U.S. in job growth. No. 3 among great places to retire. Americas least polluted city, tops in clean air and clean water. And its not just greater Naples. Areas to the north and south got similar accolades. Bottom line? On balance and in spite of Hurricane Irma, we fared pretty well in 2017. The year was a glass half-full. With benign weather and a halfway decent performance in Tallahassee, we should do even better in 2018. A Ph.D. chemist, Naples resident Dave Trecker retired as a senior vice president at Pfizer.

I trace my roots back to 1902, when a Golden Rule store was opened in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Some 12 years later, I launched the private-label Marathon Hats brand, followed later by Gaymode hosiery, Silver Moon lingerie, Big Mac work clothes and Towncraft menswear. I went public a week before the stock market crash in 1929. In 1963 I launched my first catalog. Today Im a major apparel and home furnishings retailer, with about 875 stores nationwide. I have more than 2,500 suppliers, employ more than 100,000 people and rake in more than $12 billion annually. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Go Against the CrowdOne of the best ways to make money in stocks is to be a contrarian investor, going against the crowd. Superinvestor Warren Buffett would likely agree, having said, I like to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. Thats much easier said than done, though. When the market is undergoing one of its occasional crashes and gobs of investors are selling shares in a panic (thereby pushing stock prices even lower), it takes a lot of discipline to hang on to your holdings. It takes an even stronger stomach to buy shares of stocks that others are selling but thats often the best time to do so, as you can buy into great companies at depressed prices. Meanwhile, when the market has been booming and many people are seeing great gains in their stocks, its often a bad time to buy, as shares may have been bid up to overvalued levels and they may be due to retract a little soon. Remember the old investing adage: Buy low, sell high. It seems like common sense, but it can still be hard to do, and many people who succumb to their emotions end up buying high and selling low a recipe for disappointing results. When many investors turn away from a company, that could be an ideal time to consider buying shares. Plenty of great companies fall on temporarily tough times. Just be sure to research the situation thoroughly and determine whether its problems seem likely to be short-term instead of long-term. It can also be effective to keep a chunk of your money on the sidelines, waiting for a great opportunity or two. Buffett, for example, talks about waiting for fat pitches to swing at. If youre patient, you can find some great companies on sale occasionally, and the lower the valuation, the greater the margin of safety. Take time to learn more about investing and to think for yourself. Check out books by Peter Lynch, or John Bogles The Little Book of Common Sense Investing (Wiley, $25). Rite Aid or Wrong Aid?My dumbest investment was buying into shares of Rite Aid in 2002, right before its former CEO and several other former and current employees were indicted for fraud. T.F., onlineThe Fool Responds: That was an ugly chapter in Rite Aids history, with six former executives pleading guilty or being convicted of financial crimes, and five of them ending up in prison. It also resulted in the company having to restate $1.6 billion in earnings on its financial statement the largest restatement ever, at the time. In 1999, Rite Aid briefly topped $50 per share, while a year later, shares traded in the low teens. They were around $2 per share by the time you bought. People often assume that stocks that have crashed cant fall any further and must be bargains, but Rite Aid is just one example of how that thinking is wrongheaded. Shares did rise and fall, but ultimately dropped to $0.20 per share and recently were near $1.80. The stock may end up rewarding its believers, but it remains risky. The company has long struggled, carrying a lot of debt, not growing quickly and facing tough competition. It recently sold more than 1,900 stores to Walgreen Boots Alliance for $4.4 billion, which will help it pay off debt. That leaves Rite Aid smaller but stronger, though it still faces challenges such as Amazon looking to enter the pharmacy market. Just Consider ItWith its relatively low risk profile and a track record of dividend growth, Nike (NYSE: NKE) is a smart growth stock to consider. The companys stock price has stagnated amid weak retail sector results, but theres much to remain optimistic about. Direct-to-consumer selling, an ongoing program to buy back shares and a costcutting initiative should give the company some near-term earnings momentum, while its biggest growth drivers will likely come from international markets such as China and Western Europe. In China alone, there are 400 million people active in sports and exercise today, and Nike believes that the Chinese market will eventually expand to become more than 10 times the size of Nikes North American consumer base. Nikes dividend recently yielded 1.2 percent. That might not look like much, but Nike has increased its dividend annually for 16 years and has boosted its payout at an average annual rate of 15 percent over the last five years and 13 percent over the last decade. As it recently paid out just 32 percent of its earnings in dividends, theres still plenty of room for further substantial increases down the line. Nikes time-tested brand and unmatched supply chain network form a defensive moat that should help it capture growth in the apparel industry. Its worth a closer look for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Nike.) Im the product of a 1989 merger of two c omp anies that traced their roots back to 1858 and 1887, respectively. One companys first product, a laxative mineral salt, was a best-seller. The other had the largest penicillin production plant in the world by 1943. Today Im a pharmaceutical giant with annual sales topping $20 billion. My cardiovascular drug Eliquis, with sales topping $3 billion in 2016, has treated more than 5 million people globally, while my cancer drug Opdivos 2016 sales approached $4 billion. I employ roughly 25,000 people and am based in New York City. Who am I? (Answer: Bristol-Myers Squibb) A Taxing ProblemQWhat should I do if I dont have the money to pay my taxes this year? G.N., Opelika, AlabamaAFirst, understand that even if you cant pay a penny, you need to file your return on time. Failing to do so will result in penalties. So file that return and pay as much as you can, as that will minimize any penalties or interest charges. When it comes to an inability to pay, you do have some options, which you can discuss with the IRS itself by calling 800-829-1040. The IRS may be able to offer you a brief extension, a payment installment plan or an offer in compromise, where it gives you the chance to settle your obligation by paying less than you originally owed. The IRS may even be able to waive any penalties, though you will still owe any interest accrued. If youre thinking of solving your problem by charging your taxes to a credit card, think again if that debt is going to remain unpaid for a long while, racking up interest charges at perhaps 20 percent or more annually. (Credit card service providers will also charge you a convenience fee, which can be rather inconvenient.) A bank loan might be better, possibly charging you less than the IRS interest and penalties. Dont ignore your taxes, as that could lead the IRS to take collection action. ***QWhen changing brokerages, can I have my entire portfolio transferred to the new brokerage without having to sell anything and without generating any taxable gains? T.W., Essexville, MichiganAYup. Your new brokerage will likely be able to help you switch seamlessly. No selling or taxable gains need be involved. Want more information about stocks?

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYteam members. This is a predictable outcome of group decision-making dynamics. Unfortunately, says Amanda Setili, it can be a highly destructive one. What often happens in group decision making is that two extreme options rise to the top and are forced into a yes-or-no framework, says Ms. Setili, author of Fearless Growth: The New Rules to Stay Competitive, Foster Innovation and Dominate Your Markets. When that happens, she adds, alternate options which many team members might actually prefer are left off the table. And because neither camp will give an inch, the CEO might have to step in and make the final call. The result is a decision not many people really like, a CEO who blames the team for indecisiveness, and behindthe-scenes grumbling that the CEO is playing favorites or behaving like a dictator, she says. In situations like this, no one wins. Consider this typical example: Jill, president of a company that had created a new smart home thermostat, was at a crossroads. Over the past year, her company had conducted tests of a direct-to-consumer sales approach in three geographic markets. The tests showed that given sufficient investment, her company could supplement its current sales to DIY retailers and local HVAC companies by selling direct to homeowners. Now was the time to expand the program nationally but the team had reached a stalemate over whether this investment was wise. Members of the team fell into two camps, each side adamant about its position. Those in the go camp felt that selling direct to consumers was essential in order for the company to reach its growth goals. They asserted that there were vast numbers of homeowners who would purchase and install their own smart thermostats if they understood how easy it could be and were provided with clear instructions. Those in the no-go camp felt that selling direct to consumers would kill the company. Its too risky, they insisted. If we go direct, DIY retailers and HVAC services companies will drop us as a supplier theyd rather carry a product that they alone can supply. The no-go camp also feared the company didnt have the skills or deep pockets needed to succeed in the direct-to-consumer business. Jills team wrestled with this go/no-go decision for more than six months, with zero progress. Each camp dug deep trenches, accumulating more evidence that their point of view was correct. Jill saw risks on both sides, but knew that whatever path forward the company chose, gaining the full commitment of her team the leaders of sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, human resources and legal was crucial for success.Six steps to end a stalemateSo, what happens next? Ideally, Ms. Setili says, in a stalemate situation like this, the leader should take six key actions: 1. Set clear objectives As a first step to resolving the impasse, Jill got her team together to agree on objectives. After a full afternoon of healthy debate, the team agreed that within two years, it was essential that they achieve 20 percent market share. It would be nice, they also agreed, if they could retain at least the current level of sales with the DIY retailers and HVAC services companies and maintain at least 10 percent net profits. 2. Develop several alternatives A week later, the group gathered again to discuss alternative approaches to meeting their agreed-upon objectives. Members of both camps were surprised at the breadth of options the team identified. Over the past several months, each side had become so entrenched in its own point of view neither had realized how much middle ground existed. After several hours of brainstorming and heated discussion, the group had developed four distinct alternatives for how to proceed. The options varied in terms of the partners they would enlist, the way they would engage the HVAC services companies and how the company would manage logistics to supply each local market. 3. Address each camps specific concerns As you are evaluating the pros and cons of the different strategic alternatives, it is crucial to address each sides concerns. Jill asked a lot of questions and paid attention to both the facts and the emotions each team member expressed. For example, Steve, the head of sales, had spent years building relationships with the leading HVAC service companies in each local market and with retailers. These people were not only business partners, they were friends. He felt strongly that if the company were to sell direct to consumers, it must find a way to partner with these sales channels to make them successful. Chris, who ran manufacturing and logistics, was most concerned about how the company would manage thousands of individual shipments to consumers. And Dana, who managed marketing, wanted a commitment from the board to maintain the marketing budget at a robust level, even if it took many months for direct-to-consumer sales to take off. Jill made sure that any plan the team came up with addressed concerns such as those Steve, Chris and Dana expressed. 4. Choose a path forward, then adjust course as you gain knowledge The most common cause of stalemates is uncertainty about what the future will bring. And the best way to get facts to address these unknowns is to test the waters. Jills team decided to collaborate with several HVAC services companies and experiment with different ways of enlisting them as partners. Stocking local inventory, performing particularly tricky installations and taking tech support calls were among the ways that HVAC services companies could potentially contribute. The no-go camp was surprised to learn that the HVAC suppliers actually liked the new direct-to-consumer approach, because it enabled them to attract new customers for profitable maintenance contracts. 5. Manage the risks as you implement Jill assigned one person on her team to manage each of the risks related to the direct-to-consumer approach. For example, Steve, the head of sales, worked with HVAC services companies to make sure their needs were met. Chris was in charge of managing inventory and shipments, and was measured on customer-service metrics related to delivery. Dana embarked on a process to build the brand online and was held accountable for marketing metrics, such as marketing cost per completed directto-consumer sale. Because each risk was explicitly managed, the team was able to press forward with tremendous speed and coordination. 6. Recognize both small and large wins on the path to success When pursuing a new strategic path, its essential that the CEO recognize and celebrate small wins. Jill made sure to celebrate even the small signs of progress each week, such as upticks in direct-to-consumer sales or favorable reviews online. This kept the energy high and helped the team stay cohesive as they navigated the bumps on the road to success. Whatever you do, Ms. Setili warns, dont let the polarization problem stop your company from pursuing bold growth strategies. In our age of disruption, you must be agile and courageous, she stresses. Letting fear and indecision slow you down is a huge mistake. In fact, it can be your death knell. Todays business climate rewards fast innovation and adaptability. Leaders who understand how to unleash employee creativity and build a culture of trust can help teams break stalemates and move ahead fearlessly.

Existing-home sales and price growth are forecast to slow in 2018, primarily because of the altered tax benefits of homeownership affecting some high-cost areas. NARs pending homes sales index, an indicator based on contract signings, rose 0.2 percent to 109.5 in November from 109.3 in October. As of press time Dec. 28, the index remains at its highest reading since June (110.0) and is 0.8 percent above a year ago. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said contract signings mustered a small gain in November and were up annually for the first time since June. However, new buyers coming into the market are finding out quickly that their options are limited and competition is robust, he said. One the biggest questions about the year ahead is whether the depressed levels of available supply can improve enough to slow price growth and make buying a home more affordable. While Novembers boost in existing-home sales was noteworthy, it did come with some concerns. Sales prices were up 5.8 percent more than double wage growth and the 3.4-month supply of homes on the market was the lowest since NAR began tracking in 1999. The strengthening economy, and expectation that more Millennials will want to buy, serve as promising signs for solid homebuying demand for 2018, while also putting additional pressure on inventory levels and affordability, Mr. Yun said. Markets with high home prices and property taxes will likely feel some impact from the reduced tax benefits of owning a home. His end-of-year forecast was that existing-home sales would finish 2017 at around 5.54 million, which is an increase of 1.7 percent from 2016 (5.45 million), and that the national median existing-home price would reflect an increase of around 6 percent for the year. In 2018, Mr. Yun anticipates essentially no change (a decline of 0.4 percent) in existing sales (5.52 million), and price growth to moderate to around 2 percent. The NAR pending home sales index in the Northeast jumped 4.1 percent to 98.9 in November, and at press time was 1.1 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index rose 0.4 percent to 105.8 in November, and was 0.8 percent higher than November 2016. Pending home sales in the South decreased 0.4 percent to an index of 123.1 in November but were still 2.5 percent higher than last November. The index in the West declined 1.8 percent in November to 100.4, and at press time were 2.3 percent below a year ago. See the full NAR pending home sales index at www.nar.realtor/pending-homesales.

Just four miles east of downtown Naples, The Isles of Collier Preserve provides residents with a stunningly beautiful private world bordered by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden and Dollar Bay. More than 1,300 acres of the communitys 2,400 acres are dedicated to natural habitat and nature preserves connected by a network of recreational trails, nature observation stations, bike paths and waterways for kayaking. Residents and visitors enter The Isles of Collier Preserve through a gatehouse archway distinguished by a reflecting pool. Next stop for visitorsthe Discovery Sales Center, described as more nature center than sales center. A Neighbors Room presents displays on neighbors Rookery Bay Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden, and Conservancy of Southwest Florida, among others. A rustic boardwalk encircles a recreated cypress wetland and 14 cypress tree replica. Visitors can take a virtual tour at interactive stations, take an eco-friendly electric boat ride or explore via Minto-provided bicycles or kayaks. World-class amenities inspired by Collier history The Isles Club with its inviting coastal cottage style design inspired by the original Naples Beach Hotel built in 1888 is at the communitys center. Like the original Naples Beach Hotel, The Isles Club is distinguished by a stylized cupola and large awning-shaded front porch. Residents and friends gather at The Isles Club for dining and social functions, swimming in the resort-style pool and lap pool, tennis, pickleball and workouts in the state-of-the-art fitness center. A lushly landscaped event courtyard, yoga lawn and kayak launch provide additional opportunities for outdoor recreation. Home choices to meet every lifestyle Minto offers a selection of 43 innovative, energy-efficient home designs at The Isles of Collier Preserve that complement their spectacular natural surroundings and present a contemporary interpretation of classic Florida coastal home styles.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 REAL ESTATE B19Spectacular rooftop amenities completed at Kalea BayCommunitys clubhouse also set to open As construction on Tower 1 nears completion, many of the buildings amenities are ready for the first residents to arrive. Furniture was recently delivered to the rooftop pool. Consisting of comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the placement of each piece offers the perfect vantage point for breathtaking sunsets daily. Whether lounging poolside or enjoying the company of friends in our community room, the views from the rooftop can only be described as spectacular, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. From here, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, several nature preserves and even two of the highest ranked beaches in the United States. Theres not another place like it in Southwest Florida. Additionally, the rooftop amenity area is home to a barbecue station and an openair fitness center with a cantilevered roof that opens and closes. We had very high expectations for our sky amenities and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level, she added. The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resort-lifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, will be ready for occupancy shortly and is currently more than 90 percent sold. The approaching completion of its construction phase, as well as the near sellout of Tower 1, prompted Kalea Bay to release Tower 2 at the beginning of 2017. 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. 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. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the towers rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys 88,000-square-foot club amenity center, which is due to open on January 5. This area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse 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-the-art fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants 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 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts, and guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. 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. The same holds true for its tennis program with the recent hiring of Nestor Nunez as Director of Tennis. 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.

And what better experts in starting anew than those in the arts, who continually start over again, grappling with a blank page, an empty canvas, a new script, a fresh Word document. They experience new beginnings multiple times a year, a week or a day. We spoke with a Broadway actor who has originated roles and recently acted on Broadway in Groundhog Day: The Musical, a show about beginning again and again and again.

Leading the charge locally for sheer numbers of loaned reading material is Nick Linn, who reads about 200 books a year and has been instrumental in supporting Collier County public libraries since he moved here in 1990. From a reading competition to a career as a corporate speechwriter for C&P Telephone Company (later Bell Atlantic) in his home state of West Virginia, a lifetime marinating in the realm of words has culminated in becoming the principal organizer and namesake of the popular Nick Linn Lecture Series, through which Friends of the Libraries of Collier County brings bestselling authors to Naples each winter for the entertainment and edification of the reading public. Like most devoted readers, Mr. Linns literary vocation began in his childhood when he won a reading contest as a preteen in Wheeling, W. Va.

Were excited to announce our ofce is now open for business. MARCO ISLAND LOCATION950 N. Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 FLORIDA WRITERSNew imprint delivers a speedy, short, slick and satisfying read Manhunt by James Patterson with James O. Born. BookShots, 144 pages. Paperback, $4.99. Kindle Ebook, $3.99.The BookShots imprint is a new line in the Little, Brown publishing domain. The titles are long on action, story-driven and easy to read in an evening. Bestseller king James Patterson considers these among his best novels of any length. By partnering with other writers, he has stepped up his productivity (which was always high). Writing shorter books helps as well. These books seem aimed at readers of digital versions. As the author says, you can enjoy them on a commute (lets hope this means in a vehicle you are not driving) or even on your cell phone during breaks at work. Indeed, there is a handy app for downloading BookShots titles to your smart phone or tablet. Manhunt is part of the highly successful A Michael Bennet Story series. Written in a partnership by two Floridians, it justifies Mr. Pattersons recent practice of inviting a co-author to the writing party. Its Thanksgiving Day in New York, and the action begins with Michael and almost all the members of his family out on the street with a good view of that great institution: the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even with the hyper vigilance of the New York City Police Department, something resembling the clich terrorist pattern occurs. When a truck slams into a crowd of spectators, Michael barely has the time to grab and rescue his daughter Shawna. The driver exits his truck and shouts Hawqala. Michael attempts to take control of the scene, safeguarding his family as well as others nearby. Then the driver detonates an explosive device that sends the trucks roof 30 feet into the air before it crashes straight down. Pandemonium breaks loose. Oddly, there are very few patrolmen nearby. Many had been hurt, some were aiding victims and no one was chasing the perp. Michael follows the truck driver and is about to overtake him, but the man makes his escape. Its a great cityscape action sequence, ready for the movies. As the key witness, Michael reports what he knows and works with the sketch artist. Before long, the FBI takes over the case, expecting the local police to hang back yet be supportive. Michael makes an uneasy truce with agent Dan Santos, who introduces him to the gorgeous Darya Kuznetsova, the FBIs liaison from the Russian Embassy. She convinces Michael that she can provide a valuable perspective. It turns out that the perpetrator is most likely a Russian speaker from Kazakhstan. That news leads Michael and Darya to Russian immigrant neighborhoods where Daryas cultural knowledge is an asset. Michael is impressed with her for standing up to the FBI team leader. She makes it clear that Russia has many more terrorist attacks to deal with than the U.S. does. Perhaps she has more than one kind of expertise to share. Michael and Darya visit Brooklyn sections that house sizeable populations of ethnic Russians from Kazakhstan. The authors artfully draw the interrogations handled by Darya and communicated to Michael. Along the way, she informs him that such investigations are handled differently in Russia, as are many other elements of dealing with lawbreakers. The case gains energy when a fingerprint from the truck is identified through a Russian military database. It belongs to Temir Marat, now 31, who has lived in both Russian and Kazakhstan. The investigation gains momentum and the narrative gains suspenseful energy while all along the way readers learn how terrorist movements operate. Darya and Michael eventually visit many parts of New York City, finding more individuals with useful information and building their case to a crescendo with several surprises, including pinning down the terrorists motive. Readers will enjoy the solid characterizations, sharply etched locations and authoritative handling of procedural matters even though Michael is not a stickler for procedure. There is nothing flashy about Manhunt, but it certainly will satiate meatand-potatoes readers of fast-paced detective fiction. Mr. Patterson and Mr. Born seem to work effectively together. They have also combined on the full-length novel Haunted and an earlier BookShots release titled Hidden. I can imagine many more such successful collaborations. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. y I l p f t philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com BORN PATTERSON e m e e te rr a e p fi w an a su ni n mo so l sh a an d o f ev e a st

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Art in Sarasota, Cathy Clayton in Tampa and Alan Avery Art Company in Atlanta. Ms. Davison, who lives in Naples, is a graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design.There are so many ways to begin. Its always easier if you have been working then your ideas go from one to the next one to the next one. If you did figures with an attitude of resignation, you might want to follow that with figures with another emotion. When I was painting how things looked under plastic, I did figures or hands or legs, and that is easy. If you get on a theme, you think, what would legs look like, what color would I put behind them? So if youre working on a series, one thing leads to another much easier, than if you just start out cold. Like after a show, thats terrible. If Ive had a oneperson show, youre all geared up for it, and youve done all this work. Then you come home to an empty studio. You are just so depleted. Its so hard, its an empty feeling. You feel so lost. You feel this let down: now where do I begin? But thats all part of the process. You start noodling and doodling and not knowing where its going, and you probably have several weeks of things not going very far, and suddenly things will click. But again, it all comes down to just going in and going to work. Nothing happens if youre waiting for all these wonderful ideas to happen, that youll get a brainstorm. At least that doesnt happen with me. Work happens from work. And its showing up every day. And some days things work well, and some days they dont. But if you dont show up, nothing works, and nothing gets done. The most important thing is showing up for work. And thats how you begin. Nobody else cares. Nobody else is pushing you. You have to be a selfstarter to begin with, and you have to be self-disciplined. It becomes a habit. My life, my days, my weeks are full of new beginnings. WILLIAM PARRY, actorWilliam Parry has acted in a number of plays at Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples, including All My Sons and My Fair Lady. Hes been in 11 Broadway productions, including Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunday in the Park with George, Passion, Gypsy (with Bernadette Peters) and most recently, Groundhog Day, a musical about multiple beginnings, in which the main character finds himself unable to escape living the same day over and over again. An actor looks at a piece that hasnt been done, originating a role thats never been done before thats really new beginnings. That is probably the most exciting thing. The (rehearsal) room is completely filled with unknowns. You may know some of the people involved, but you have no idea where its going. You have a script and a score, but things are going to change, and theyre going to take a different form, as they inevitably do, which is good. Change is a good thing, for human beings. It keeps us growing. But it is also very hard for us to embrace. I find myself resistant to various kinds of change in my life, but artistically, I really think it is the thing I come to embrace the most as being exciting: the unknown. Youre going on a kind of a journey. Its the process of finding what the show is going to be, what the character is going to be, what kind of shape its going to take. You might have preconceived notions of what the piece is, what your character is, going in. But its just so exciting to watch what happens in the room, how it unfolds over days and weeks, into the coming months, as each person goes through their discoveries. I think very often directors have a very clear notion of where they want to take a piece, the shape they want it to take, the story they want to tell. And I think sometimes that very clear idea isnt what they end up with. And thats a very good thing. I know its exciting for an actor, maybe a little scary, but the good ones embrace that: where do we go from here? Now what? As for Groundhog Day, I fell more and more in love with it as it went on. Danny Rubin, who co-wrote the screenplay for the movie took the ideas in the movie and expanded them. He took you deeper into not only what was going on in the mind and heart and soul of our central character, but of the other people in town, and that was a very interesting idea, a very good idea. It just expanded it, made it a much more human story. (The main character) is on an odyssey, in a sense, to save his soul It slowly st arts to sink into him that the way out (of his endless loop of living the same day over and over) is not through himself, but through other people, through seeing the world through the eyes of others. Its the most exciting part (of my craft), its the thing I look forward to the most, the beginnings. JOYCE OWENS, architectJoyce Owens is the principal architect of Architecture Joyce Owens LLC in Fort Myers. Before opening AJO, she was a co-founding partner of the London-based firm, Azman-Owens Architects, where she worked for clients such as Boris Johnson, Alexander McQueen and TAGHeuer. Ms. Owens was president of the American Institute of Architects Florida in 2017.Every new project for me includes a client. Im different from an artist who paints or sculpts something from their head. For them, it might be something they feel or see, and then they hope theres a client in the end. That doesnt happen for me. Theres a client first, and they have needs. Its my responsibility as an architect to respond to those needs. Its a spatial thing and a functional thing that Im creating. Buildings have a function. Its something you live in or use every day: an office building, a school, a gym, a house. The first three things I do when I begin are: I listen. Then I ask so many questions! Then I need time to absorb.BEGINNINGFrom page 1DAVISON PARRY OWENS COURTESY PHOTOJoyce Owens, who designed this structure, says she begins her artistic process by listening.Change is a good thing, for human beings.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5It has to sit and percolate. Sometimes that takes a day or a week or a month, because I have other projects that Im working on. Im waiting to get to the point where I can work on it. So its in the back of my brain, percolating. All the while Im absorbing other things around me that might influence me. It might be something intangible that I see, and I say, I want that intangible in my building. It maybe the way the space feels, or the way the light comes in. There are tangible things too. Its about how something functions, and then I figure out how to interpret it and translate it into my own language. I have to get through all the clutter in front of me, whats currently on my desk. But in the back of my mind, Im thinking about this project. Then I need to have a clear block of time, and know that for the next 48 working hours, Ill be working steadily on it. I start by putting pen to paper, then put it on the computer, typically drawing in three dimensions. Then its printed, so I can draw on top. Then back and forth, back and forth, between computer and paper for the next few days, changing it, refining it, until it becomes a building that suits the needs of my client and our mutual aesthetic demands. JAMES LILLIEFORS, authorJames Lillifors, a journalist earlier in his career, writes political thrillers (Viral, The Leviathan Effect) and a mystery series (The Psalmist and The Tempest.) A third in that series will be released in the fall. The Childrens Game, a thriller written under the pen name Max Karpov, is scheduled for publication in March.Beginnings is a very interesting topic, something Ive been thinking about lately. Recently, I was immersed in writing my mystery novel, which has a team, a pastor and a homicide detective. The working title is The Dark Psalmist. Its the third in a series. Theres a scene in each of the books where the pastor gives a sermon, and one of the topics his sermon pertains to is beginnings, and finishing what you begin. He draws on 2 Corinthians 8:11, which says, Finish the work, that you may complete it just as eagerly as you began ... I think thats a good idea, to finish what you begin, and thats how I approach beginnings. It seems I used to begin projects, and like a lot of people do, run out of steam, or realize after a while that it doesnt match your original enthusiasm. As I get older, I dont want to begin something I dont want to finish. People sometimes say that writing doesnt get easier. I think it gets more rewarding and more interesting. Thats because Im being more methodical about beginning something. I think about it more before I actually dive into something. I spend more time thinking it through, and thats been the case with my two recent books that are coming out this year. I dont want to begin something Im not going to finish. And I want to finish with enthusiasm. Thats the challenge. As you get older, you value your time more in certain ways. You dont want to work on something thats the wrong project for two years, to take two years of your life to work on something thats not going to work out. Im more careful about beginnings now, and what projects I say yes to. I start with the idea of a character. I often carry a notebook with me. If I see something out in the world or on television, Ill write it down and think, Thatll be a good idea for a book or a story. But probably nine times out of 10, I decide it isnt. But sometimes it is. It has to percolate. You have to think it out. An idea alone doesnt make a book. You have to let it grow in your thoughts for a while and see if its really something worthwhile. I might start writing out scenes or maybe a rough outline that helps me think it through. Ive got notebooks with lots of ideas for books Ive never written. Ill have these ideas and then decide, maybe a better idea will come along. And Ill go on to something else. Those are false beginnings. You have to go through a lot of false beginnings to get to a real one. KATE DAVIS, bassist, singer/songwriterKate Davis, who is based in New York City, has performed in Sarasota at the Ringling International Arts Festival and appeared multiple times at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center (no relation) in Fort Myers. Shes performed with Post Modern Jukebox (You can see her on YouTube singing All About That Bass while playing a stand-up bass.) She recently raised $57,000 on Kickstarter to make a record of her own music.The songwriting process begins differently every time. I start with an idea a single lyric, musical motif, or a chord progression. I try to flesh out the concept (and ultimately, the story) to influence the musical choices. That may be the one constant in my process. Sometimes it feels like all the finished parts are right in front of me, but it can take a very long time for them to reveal themselves. Songwriting is always a puzzle. The process is rarely linear. Its taken me up to three years to get from start to finish on a song. Another song might take 15 minutes. Beginnings are fascinating to me. In a song, one simple idea can go anywhere. There are no boundaries. But theres something intimidating about that especially when applied more directly to life. Through songwriting Ive learned to be more patient and appreciative of the experience of being human. That mindset helps me be present and positive, and I feel better about my work. The two living and creating have definitely become two halves of a whole. One done well makes the other better, and vice versa.

Performed at Moorings Park Auditorium, 120 Moorings Park Drive COLLECTORS CORNER Dolls that tell story of human trafficking a century ago scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org If theres one thing that amazes me, it is this: No matter how much technologies and society change, so many things remain the same. In December, Florida Weekly published a compelling cover story on human trafficking in South Florida. Regrettably, its a crime that has gone on for millennia. More than a century ago, Cornelia Bonnell founded the Door of Hope mission in Shanghai to combat just that. Around the turn of the 20th century, Ms. Bonnell, a graduate of Vassar College, was teaching in a private school for the children of foreign residents in Shanghai. While she was there, Bonnell learned that girls in China were bought and sold into slavery and prostitution. Baby girls often were killed because of their gender. She took action, and in 1901, opened Door of Hope. There, the mission was to shelter and educate the girls and to teach them to read, write and sew. To help support the mission, the girls made dolls that depicted people dressed in garments depicting their age and status in Chinese society. The 8to 12-inch dolls had heads and hands carved of pear wood that were mounted on cloth bodies. The detail of the costumes is exquisite, from SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Door of Hope doll depicting a boy has a head and hands of carved wood. He was made before 1937.Found: MCC of the Palm Beaches Enough for All Thrift Store, Lake Worth Plaza Shopping Center, 6466-68 Lake Worth Road, Lake Worth. 561-660-8763. Paid: $8The Skinny: An antiques dealer friend of mine says a Rolls-Royce is a RollsRoyce. That is, quality always is obvious to a trained eye. And thats how it was when I spotted this doll in a thrift store display case. There were two other dolls nice Japanese souvenirs that no doubt are worth a few dollars. But the costume on this 10-inch boy doll is elaborate, from the frog closures on his coat to his handmade cloth shoes. I did not know at the time whether he was one of the fabled Door of Hope dolls at the time I bought him, but knew that he stood out from the rest. National doll dealer Phil May later confirmed the dolls origins.The quality is fabulous as I always say, a pair of Ferragamos always looks like Ferragamos, even when theyre worn out. This guy is complete, from his hat to his shoes. His coat does have a hole, but Ill treat that as the patina of a century of telling the story of another world.He underscores something else: You never know where you will find treasure.

Elaborate groupings depicted wedding parties, and other costumes depicted luck, wealth and happiness attributes that remain universal today. But the Door of Hope dolls also depicted the costumes of laborers and farmers, as well as poor widows, Buddhist priests and monks, among others. They were sold internationally Kimport Dolls of Independence, Mo., was a major distributor in the 1930s. Online sources estimate seamstresses at the mission turned out anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 of the dolls between 1902 and 1937, when production of the dolls ended as Japan gained control of Shanghai in the years leading up to World War II. For me, the dolls are an example of how quality endures the carving and the sewing combine to tell a story of survival all in tiny stitches.

PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409 PUZZLES SUMMING UP THE NEW YEAR HOROSCOPESCAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and admit it super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Nows the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might well help get that personal situation back on track. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleagues harsh criticism. But dont let it shake your confidence in what youre trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for an end-of-month sale, and then buy something wonderful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You could be drawn into a problem twixt friends or family members. Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, then get them all together for a group hug. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lions heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A relationship youd hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things dont go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Making choices is usually easy for straight-shooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. Youre also generous with your help for those who seek it.

The New York Times has called The Price Millers best play. The show stars Jeffrey Binder (Broadways Lion King and Mary Poppins), David Whalen (star of motion pictures Fault in our Stars and American Pastoral), Stuart Zagnit (Broadways Newsies, Wicked and Seussical) and Marilee Talkington (off-Broadways Truce) under the direction of Kristen Coury, founder and producing artistic director of the professional company. The Price is set in an old, memoryfilled Manhattan brownstone attic that becomes the staging ground for conflict between past and present, success and failure, and obligation and choice when two estranged brothers, Victor (Binder) and Walter (Whalen), return to their childhood home after 30 years. Mr. Binder, a 15-year Broadway veteran who also serves as associate artistic director for Gulfshore Playhouse, most recently appeared on The Norris Center stage last season as Sherlock Holmes in Hound of the Baskervilles and Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. His New York credits include Zazu in Disneys The Lion King and George Banks in Mary Poppins, both performed at the New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street. Television credits include Damages, Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

JUST GOT A LOT HAPPIER!$5 Wines | $5 Craft Cocktails | $5 Beers NEW Specials Bar BitesSeven Days | 3pm to 6pm Reservations 239.430.4999 | Private Dining 239.659.3176 Located at The Hilton Naples | 5111 Tamiami Trail North | www.ShulasNaples.com The Disaster Artist (James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen) Hollywood failures, friends Tommy (James Franco) and Greg (Dave Franco), decide to make their own film, The Room, which inadvertently becomes a cult classic as one of the worst movies ever made. Funny without being mean-spirited, its a great movie about the making of a terrible movie. Rated R.Wonder Wheel (Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi) Unhappily married to Humpty (Belushi), 1950s Coney Island waitress Ginny (Winslet) has an affair with young lifeguard Mickey (Timberlake). Meanwhile, Mickey has a crush on Humptys daughter from his first marriage, Carolina (Juno Temple). Its the kind of love triangle we know writer/director Woody Allen can do well, but here he runs out of creativity quickly. Rated PG-13.Darkest Hour 1/2(Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James) Gary Oldman is tremendous as Winston Churchill in the first month of his run as prime minister in May 1940. Churchill deals with the escalating war in Europe and turmoil within his own party in this fascinating look at the complexity of power and war. Rated PG-13.Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell) Frustrated that the town police chief (Harrelson) has made little progress in solving her daughters murder, fiery Mildred (McDormand) pays for strong words on three billboards to move the investigation along. The performances and script are tremendous, and best of all, the film has real personality. Its a sure Oscar contender. Rated R. The Man Who Invented Christmas (Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce) Its the story of how Charles Dickens (Stevens) wrote A Christmas Carol and in doing so established many of the Christmas traditions and sentiments we still hold dear today. At least, thats what it thinks its about. It really doesnt do any of that well, and as a result plays like a lump of coal in your stocking. Rated PG.Justice League 1/2(Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa) Batman (Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gadot) bring in new recruits to help them fight off an alien bad guy intent on taking over the world. Its starts slow, but some levity in the second half makes it enjoyable. Rated PG-13.Daddys Home 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson) Co-dads Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) have their own fathers (Gibson and John Lithgow) come to town for Christmas, which leads to family chaos. Its notably funnier than its 2015 predecessor, and is the perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit this year. Rated PG-13. FILM CAPSULES

NoIts a brilliant idea for a movie: Science evolves to the point that it can shrink people to 5 inches tall with little risk of side effects. Humans who choose to be downsized leave their lives, friends and loved ones behind to live in micro communities. Everything is cheaper because they consume and require less, which is good for the environment but bad for the economy. A concept such as this is ripe for social satire, and knowing the storytelling is in the hands of writer/director Alexander Payne (Sideways) is ample cause for excitement. Payne has a way of exposing ugly truths about humanity by finding, with the help of A-list casts, emotional clarity in his characters (About Schmidt, The Descendants, Nebraska). You cant help but wonder, then, how he and co-writer Jim Taylor allowed Downsizing to go so horribly off track. The movie is largely void of humor, meaning or commentary. Its incredibly frustrating, and sad, when filmmakers who you know are immensely talented render a product thats not up to their standards. Matt Damon stars as Paul, an occupational therapist at Omaha Steaks in Nebraska. Hes married to Audrey (Kristen Wiig), but their lives are listless. They cant afford the new house she desperately wants, and they find themselves flustered by the endless cycle of paycheck-to-paycheck middle class modernity. Life is hard, and it isnt getting any easier. But, an opportunity: Downsizing to .0634 percent of their current mass and volume will allow their $152,000 in net wealth to be worth $12.5 million as small people, so it becomes a no-brainer for a better life. The before, during and after scenes depicting the shrinking process are fascinating, as they showcase Paynes bold imagination letting loose in a way thats both practical and creative. After Paul downsizes, however, the film falters. Once shrunken, Paul becomes a lost soul when things dont go as expected. The shrinking is irreversible, and he struggles to let loose and enjoy life. His bohemian upstairs neighbor (Christoph Waltz) is able to help a little, but really only Vietnamese dissident Ngoc Lan Tran (Hong Chau) gets through to him. Where the story goes, and how it gets there, can best be described as a lame disappointment that is completely void of the ingenuity demonstrated in the first third of the film. Whats more, theres no point. Many things happen to Paul, but director Paynes message, whatever it may be, is lost in all the meandering. Are we to make the most of the life we have because we dont know when itll be over? Is the grass not always greener on the other side? Is the only purpose in life to help others? Many ideas are introduced, but none are followed through with in a compelling way. Its as if Payne is taking from Darren Aronofskys (mother!) bad habit approach to audiences of make of this what you will. He shouldve known better. If you can bring yourself to do it and you wont, but if leave the theater after Pauls shrinking process is complete. By that time you will have seen all the good this movie has to offer. s T s b W o T dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Director Alexander Payne won Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars for Sideways (2004) and The Descendants (2011).

C22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYers themselves but it was the library that got me started early. From that point forward, libraries figured largely in Mr. Linns life, from the large amount of time he spent at his university library at Bethany College to drawing inspiration for speeches during his decades-long career. His reputation grew great enough that he parlayed an entry-level job in the telephone companys traffic department into a position editing employee communications. The editing job evolved into interviews with famous people in West Virginia for a series of in-house publications, which led to what Mr. Linn calls the highlight of his career: Pearl S. Buck, author of the Nobel Prize-winning novel The Good Earth. He interviewed her at her home in Philadelphia. She was the most amazing lady Ive ever met, he said. We blew a fuse in her very old townhouse and while we were stalling for time, she took me upstairs to her living quarters where she wrote The Good Earth.A series is bornMr. Linns admiration of fiction authors, however, did not lead to any interest in becoming one himself. With my experience interviewing more than 50 authors, I developed such an appreciation for the dedication and hard work it takes to make it happen that I know not many people have it. It is very hard work, he said. But its magic to create something on paper that will totally absorb thousands of people. When I find a book I love and am absorbed in, Im right there with the characters, worrying about surviving the death threat Im into the plot totally. Thats the mark of success in fiction. So instead of embarking on a literary career of his own, Mr. Linn continued crafting articles and speeches for his company and later, upon his retirement, devoted himself to the promotion of libraries as cultural institutions. When he arrived in Naples in 1990, he and a few likeminded friends started a lecture series called SPES Society Inc. to bring authors, entertainment personalities and thought leaders to Naples for brainstimulating talks. The SPES Society series continued for 12 years. By the time it disbanded, Mr. Linn was a new member of the board of directors of Friends of the Libraries of Collier County, which needed to create a new fundraiser. Thats how, 15 years ago, the Nick Linn Lecture Series was born with the goal of raising $5,000 to support local libraries. We were successful that first year, but we thought wed never do that again because its a fair amount of work to negotiate the logistics (of bringing in bestselling authors), he said. But 15 years later, the series is going strong and averages $100,000 a year to help the Friends support the library system.Entertainment valueTo determine which fiction authors to invite, Mr. Linn and other group organizers survey library staff and local bookstores for bestsellers that resonate with popular audiences. Sometimes an author is popular nationally but not locally, he said. Being on a bestseller list and how many times is important. The New York Times is the granddaddy. Entertainment value and speaking ability are also major considerations for organizers when booking authors, he said. Our audiences want to be entertained. This is not a literary society, Mr. Linn said. Theyre coming to The RitzCarlton and looking for an enjoyable experience. If the author is successful, theyll go home saying, I spent a couple hours with Mary Higgins Clark and feel they know them. To that end, he added, the organizers never give the author a subject matter to talk about, and we dont allow the authors to read that can be deadly. From the funds the series generates, the Friends can augment library budgets to provide technology, programs and scholarships that benefit Collier County residents and enhance the libraries value to the community. Were guided by the wish list of the library administration, Mr. Linn said about where the money goes. We support most of the programs that the library provides if theres money involved. His particular tastes in reading run toward historical and spy novels and away from science fiction and poetry, though on this years agenda are authors who specialize in romance, comic books and more. It seems that like the series audiences, Mr. Linn wants to be entertained and immersed in different worlds himself. Pet peeves that might prompt him to put a book aside include irrelevant details, any title that gets too academic or too many characters. He confides one of the difficulties that have come with growing older for him as a reader is too many people in the plot, particularly if you read 10 pages before you go to sleep. If you dont get back to it for a couple days, you forget whos who. I used to be dedicated to the idea that if I started a book I had to finish it. Now, if I get 20 pages in and Im not interested, I quit and move on to something else. A reputation by the booksThat discernment has cultivated quite a high regard for Mr. Linn among publishers and authors, said his friend and series committee member Nita Leftwich. Lecture crowds of up to 600 guests and potential customers reliably lure in-demand authors to The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort each winter to expound on the writing life and their work. The Friends of the Collier County Libraries have become so dependent on his name recommendation that Mr. Linn allowed them to copyright it for use after he leaves the board. The publicists want to get those authors on the road and get them exposed, and they know if they deal with Nick Linn, that helps things happen, Ms. Leftwich said. He has been the one who has manned this ship for all these years, and believe me, its very hard work, she added. It started out with Nick Linns efforts and its been his sole concern. He loves these libraries and hes dedicated his life to them. Its paid off, because weve been able to help a lot. Extending his love of reading to the community and offering locals opportunities to discover new authors or get to know authors they already love also motivates Mr. Linn to continue the series. To live vicariously through the characters of a spy or historical novel is an experience readers like him cherish, and the series allows him to bring such experiences to others. The lecture series is important to me because it ties back to the love I have for reading and how youre missing opportunities if youre not into reading, he said. Whether its fiction or non-fiction, good titles and good authors can enrich anybodys life. Anything I can do to champion that is important to me. Nonfiction series in its fifth yearFor the fth year, Friends of the Library of Collier County has engaged three non ction authors to discuss their works over breakfast at the Country Club of Naples. The 2018 series begins Monday, Jan. 22, with maritime and adventure writer Michael Tougias, co-author of So Close to Home, the story of the Downs family during WWII.

As told by Goldstone, Mr. Hollands life soars with a singular achievement and ends, as genius often does, in near obscurity. The series ends Monday, March 19, with Del Quentin Wilber, the author of Rawhide Down. Ronald Reagan was just 70 days into his rst term of of ce when he was shot by John W. Hinckley Jr. Mr. Wilbers book tells the full, fascinating story of a historical moment when the nation faced a crisis.

His novels have been shortlisted for numerous literary awards, graced Top 10 lists and been published in 30 languages. Mr. Hurwitz is also a screenwriter, TV producer and comic book writer. He lives in Los Angeles. The 2018 Nick Linn Lecture Series ends Monday, March 26, with Adrianna Trigiani, whose 17 titles have been published in 36 countries.

CELEBRITY EXTRAA singer in real life, too BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I really like the girl who plays the sister on The Goldbergs and think she has a wonderful voice. Will she try to pursue a career in singing as well as acting? Denise W., via emailA: Hayley Orrantia, who plays Erica Goldberg on the family comedy that centers on the trials and tribulations of growing up in the 1980s, began singing as a child and recorded her own songs at the age of 14. In 2011, she was a contestant on the first season of The X-Factor and was eliminated in week five. When she was cast in The Goldbergs in 2013, creator/ writer Adam Goldberg heard about her singing talent, and he incorporated that into her character. Hayley goes go on the road this spring in the Strong, Sweet and Southern Tour. She has been building up her country/pop music career and is excited to get out and perform for her fans. I couldnt be more excited to get a chance to meet everyone and share music that has been deeply inspired by this wild last year of my life, she says. Im looking forward to meeting and personally thanking the fans who have followed my musical journey from the beginning, and those who have found me through The Goldbergs.

Please call for pricing. CUISINELe Lafayette sets up shop on East Trail while storm repairs continueFor the majority of Southwest Floridians, the ravages of Hurricane Irma mercifully have come and gone. But not everyone was so fortunate. Count Le Lafayettes chef/owner Sebastian Maillard among the latter. His lovely and well-established restaurant on 13th Avenue South was inundated when the storm caved in the roof. With repairs estimated to take a year, Mr. Maillard opted to find a new space, make some major upgrades and open another restaurant that will operate at least until the original has been restored. Bistro La Baguette occupies the space that previously held Mr. Moms Diner, Cloydes Prime Steaks & Seafood, Scallywags and Sweet Mamas Island Cuisine, among other establishments. Its a modest space along the East Trail, but Mr. Maillard has done an admirable job of sprucing it up with the addition of velvet chairs, marble floors, white paint over the brick walls and some tasteful French prints here and there along with a good-sized wine rack in one corner. Theres a cozy porch out front with drapes and, for inclement weather, rolldown plastic windows and tables clad in white tablecloths. Decorative faux grasses in large planters around the perimeter form something of a barrier to the multiple lanes of traffic zipping by. The porch has a bar with high-backed chairs as well, which had several occupants enjoying beer, wine and dishes from the bar menu on the evening I visited. The hostess stand was unoccupied when we arrived, but within a couple of minutes Mr. Maillard popped out of the kitchen and graciously offered us a table inside or out. It was a lovely night so we chose one on the porch. It wasnt long before a woman hed identified as his sister stopped by with menus. Those who have dined at Le Lafayette will be relieved to know that the bistro menu offers many dishes found at the original restaurant: French onion soup, cheese plates, foie gras, escargot, wild Russian caviar, duck, coq au vin, Dover sole, branzino, frog legs, veal liver, well, you get the idea. The atmosphere is a bit more casual, but the food remains seriously French. The wine list isnt huge but offers a respectable range of reasonably priced reds and whites. The Arnaud Baillot Vielles Vignes Montagny Premier Cru 2015 ($51) arrived properly chilled and paired well with our appetizers and my companions fish entre. A meal begins with crusty French bread and uns alted b utter, w hich could well spoil your appetite for dinner if you overindulge. Luckily for us, appetizers arrived relatively quickly, saving us from ourselves.The onion soup ($8.95), served in a good-sized white ceramic bowl, had a rich, meaty broth with lots of sliced onions topped with two pieces of bread covered in thick, gooey cheese. It was a well-rendered version of this classic soup.A cheese appetizer ($13.95) came on an ingenious two-level plate. The round marble top held the wedges of Brie, Roquefort and Gouda along with fresh berries, toast and apple confit. Another plate slid out from beneath it and it held a knife, fork and cheese slicer. The cheeses were all delicately flavored and the confit was an excellent complement. Entrees arrived just as we finished our appetizers but not before the dishes were cleared. (A server attendant would have helped with this.) It was clear the entrees had been delivered as soon as they were ready, as both were piping hot. Its rare to see Dover sole ($39.90) available for one person, but its available here. The fish had been filleted and fanned out on a white dish, along with au gratin potatoes and a small white cup of meuniere sauce, a simple but tasty lemon-butter sauc e. In this case, it was made with Echire butter, an artisan butter made from the milk of cows of the French villages of Poitiers and La Rochelle. A tomato Provencal topped with nicely seasoned breadcrumbs and then baked finished this dish. T he lemon butter added some zest to the extremely mild fish, but the presentation could have used some color to add eye appeal.The rack of New Zealand lamb ($29.95) was much better, containing three tender, double chops that were nicely flavored on their own but were even better with the house-made mint sauce served with them. The au gratin potatoes worked well with the chops, as did the tomato. Wed ordered the upside down apple tart ($9.95) when we placed our dinner order, as the menu indicated it took extra time to prepare. It was indeed upside down when it arrived but it was also disappointingly soggy, as if it had been sitting for some time before being served. Im not sure what the point of an upside down tarte tatin is. When served right side up, the fanned out slices of apple add visual appeal. This presentation did not, nor did it stack up to any of the luscious desserts Ive had at Le Lafayette. Perhaps a souffl would have been a better choice. Service was friendly if a little uneven, as our server was also tending bar. Im assuming theres some pressure to keep costs down as Mr. Maillard operates one restaurant and repairs another. Thats understandable. Perhaps the kitchen is smaller and so there also are limits to what he can produce here. Le Lafayette was in business for 16 years and so operated like a well-oiled machine. Perhaps it will just take a little time to iron out the wrinkles here. Dover sole comes with meuniere butter, au gratin potatoes and tomato Provencal.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYA clever two-tiered plate offers great cheese presentation and tools for eating the cheese.
