As in years past, crowds will line up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cambier Park for hot soup made and donated by local restaurants and clubs and ladled into pottery bowls handmade by local artisans, students and other volunteers. Live entertainment, a silent auction, pottery demonstrations, a pottery sale and a paint-your-own-bowl booth will be part of the fun.

COMMENTARYImmigrantsrusI talked to Jeff Adler about immigration the other day without even sending him a check. Teachers should be paid by their students, after all. Holding undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harvard University, Professor Adler specializes in U.S. urban immigration and criminology, subjects hes studied, taught and written about for more than 30 years from his seat at the University of Florida, in Gainesville. His books are published by the Harvard University Press. I made all the right preparations before I got on the phone with such an eminent scholar: did push-ups to clear my mind. Donned my most scholarly-looking spectacles. Furrowed my brow in the studious manner expected of academics and those in the know. I even considered reciting Miltons Paradise Lost backwards to my yard chickens as a warm-up exercise, but the hens might have stopped laying eggs, in protest (#metoo-noeggs). They dont like to be harassed anymore than anybody else. I hold a degree from one of the Ivies myself, but thats likely the result of a dumb mistake made in the admissions office. No doubt some clerk clicked my name right next to the name he should have chosen like that bonehead in Hawaii who clicked the Under Attack icon right next to the This Is Just a Test icon. Oops. You cant call it back, pal. So, I made it through the big front gate at Columbia University on 116th and Broadway and somehow earned a masters in journalism. Actually I double-majored, earning a masters at Cannons bar on 107th, as well. Cannons was full of immigrants an Irishman with one eye who had his social security checks mailed to the bar; a Russian with scars on his head; and a Texas woman who grew up on a cattle ranch, came to New York as a fashion model and singer, became wealthy, and somehow ended up a day-drinker at Cannons (any Texan who crosses the state line should be considered an immigrant to the United States). Looking back, I realize it helped prepare me for a conversation with Professor Adler, who was just like those Cannonians. He talked a lot, he said the most interesting things in the world, he was articulate (unlike many Cannonians) and even eloquent (all Cannonians are eloquent, even when theyre too drunk to speak clea rly). As it turns out, he has his own immigrant family stories the stories of eastern European or Russian Jews. Fifty years ago, Harvard wouldnt have accepted me (with my) background, he told me. Many of us have such backgrounds. Heres how: Some 24 million people arrived mostly poor in America in a 35-year period beginning about 1890 and ending after World War I, in 1924. For more than half of all Americans today, the first person in our families to arrive here was part of that great immigration, the professor said. They often immigrated from rough, poor, non-democratic places, and the powers that be didnt like it. Immigrants then tended to have nothing, were uneducated, unwashed, and spoke something besides English. So people complained and officials acted. The first federal immigration system was established in 1924, Professor Adler said. Government officials thought, Who do we want to keep out, and who do we want to admit in sizeable numbers? So they set up a quota system based on the make-up of the country back in 1890 (before the big immigration began). The quota system was self consciously xenophobic, based on having large numbers of western Europeans, Norwegians for example, but not others. We wanted more people with blond hair and blue eyes. Displaying attitudes still too-common today, many Americans immediately assumed crimes were the work of hotblooded immigrants prone to hateful acts. And in 1925 or so, they blamed Italians and Sicilians, in particular, along with other swarthy newcomers. The Know Nothing movement of nativists and bigots born in the face of Irish immigration in the 1850s sprang up anew in other forms, in the first decades of the 20th century. Then another migration started the great exodus of rural southern blacks into northern cities, people looking for jobs and better opportunities than their sharecropping, cotton-picking lives could provide. So these other groups suddenly got whiter: Sicilians, Greeks and others who were defined by some subsets of Americans as a threat a biological threat, a threat to social order, as people who were lazy, as people who committed crimes those folks were off the hook. An explicit argument used today by President Trump to restrict immigration dates to the mid-19th century, at least: Immigrants bring crime in disproportionate numbers. But thats 170-year-old fake news. My area of expertise is criminal behavior. So I can tell you, statistically youre much more likely to be murdered by your friends and family than by a stranger, an immigrant, noted the professor. Some of these things are knowable, he added. We can know statistically, generally, who commits a crime. We can also know if immigrants take American jobs; the short answer is, No. Although we persist in vilifying them particularly those from any of the 54 African countries, or from Haiti, or from the Americas history shows clearly: Immigrantsrus. Our parents, grandparents and great grandparents got here, often illegally or with no quotas, over the strong objections of American nationalists. Who were wrong. Now, every time any of us looks at a Haitian or a Salvadoran or an African, just to name a few, were looking at our grandparents or great grandparents. To think otherwise is not to think, only to react. So how would you treat your greatgrandparents? I know how Id treat mine. i i g B i roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

No matter whether someone is overheard saying something racist, credibly accused of sexual harassment or caught in some incredibly egregious act, if the person decides that its futile to dispute the charge, his (or her) apology looks like it came from the same mea culpa template. Somewhere in each one, there will be words to the effect that he or she has had a lapse in judgment, is sorry that he or she caused harm or distress and, this is my favorite of all, This is not the person I am. Its not just individuals who eat the very same humble pie, but corporations, too, when theyre caught in some awful act. Lets take a certain hospital in Baltimore, the University of Maryland Medical Center, which on a very cold night was taped patient dumping. A passer-by shot video of an incoherent woman being taken out by security guards, wearing only a flimsy convalescent gown, and abandoned at a bus stop. Had the guy not interceded, theres every reason to believe that she would have frozen to death. Sure enough, when the facilities administrator realized that the inhumane treatment had been inescapably proven, he had no choice but to face a news conference. And what did he say? You guessed it: We firmly believe what occurred Tuesday night does not reflect who we are. Im left with the impression that when someone uses the not who I am phrase, thats exactly who they are. All the person is trying to do is wriggle out of the mess. And that explains why everyones grovels all resemble each other. Many, if they can afford it, quickly go out and hire a crisis manager, a glorified PR person. Their loads of Crisis Response Altering Perceptions all sound the same. For that they get big bucks. Then we have those who never say theyre sorry. They have decided never to show any remorse about their disgusting comments or conduct. Im thinking, of course, of a certain president of the United States. He has concluded that even hinting at second thoughts shows weakness, and from a tactical point of view, hes usually right. So when he states something thats blatantly racist, he can swat the outrage away by denying he ever said what he said, even when there are witnesses. Im not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you. Yup, hes said that. And his base laps it up. Then you have the accessories before and after the fact, accomplices who filter their ev ery utte rance through their ambition. They are the ones who curry favor with the president because theyve calculated that it will be in their selfinterest. First, two GOP senators who were in the room Tom Cotton and David Perdue insisted they do not recall the president saying those comments specifically. Now Perdue has gotten braver, declaring that Trump didnt say sh**hole, it was a gross misrepresentation. Apparently, he heard sh**house. How absurd is that? Our social and political discourse has gotten that moronic. Polite or impolite, its still pathetic. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Trumps s***stormThe world fell on Donald Trumps head yet again when he said in a White House meeting that we should be trying to get immigrants from Norway rather than s***hole countries in the Third World. The media has treated Trumps remarks, made in a heated exchange with senators over a proposed immigration deal, as an explicit confession of racism. Why else would he scorn immigrants from places like Haiti and Somalia, while yearning for those from lily-white Scandinavia? He was almost surely trying to say that we should pick immigrants for skills (he reportedly mentioned Asia as well as Norway), but typically stated his position in the crudest terms possible. The ensuing controversy has created a cottage industry of TV and newspaper commentators declaring proudly that they came from s***hole countries, and implying that as long as we are welcoming enough people from distressed countries, our immigration policy is on track. This discussion is largely informed by a romantic view of the experience of the early 20th century, which is, unsurprisingly, not applicable 100 years later. The economy has changed. We no longer can toss low-skilled immigrants into the maw of an insatiable manufacturing sector. The fact is that immigrants from rich countries tend to do better here than immigrants from poor countries, and level of education is a key factor. According to the Migration Policy Institute, nearly half of Asian immigrants are employed in management, business, science or the arts, higher than the proportion of the native born. The median income of households headed by Asian immigrants is $70,000, higher than that of the native born. The median income of a household headed by an Indian immigrant is an astonishing $105,000. This is largely because their level of education is off the charts. Three-quarters of Indian immigrants have a college degree or more. The Indian immigrants dont reflect the norm back home, where the average person has less than six years of schooling, but we are skimming off a more skilled element of the population. Critics of Trumps comments rightly point out that immigrants from subSaharan Africa, reportedly part of the s***hole argument, are doing pretty well here. But it depends on the country. About 60 percent of Nigerian immigrants have a college degree, and more than 50 percent work in management positions. In contrast, only 11 percent of Somalis have a college degree, and half are in poverty. The numbers for immigrants from El Salvador, to pick a country also reportedly part of the White House discussion, are less encouraging. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than half of Salvadoran immigrants dont have a high-school degree, and half are living in poverty or near it. This doesnt mean they dont work hard, or deserve to be insulted, but they are struggling. We are blessed to live in a country that many millions around the world want to move to. This affords us the luxury to be more selective in our immigration policy and, like Canada or Australia, establish a system emphasizing skills suited to a 21st-century economy. Some might be from Norway, some might be from s***holes all should be prepared to thrive.

An alert followed by panic. People jacked up by a government that had no clue. Im talking about the mess in Hawaii last week, the incoming-missile alarm that warned people about impending disaster but didnt tell them what to do or how to protect themselves. It was Hawaii. But it just as easily could have been North Carolinas Outer Banks or Naples, Fla., both beset by hurricane warnings, with people marooned and with no guidance. A few months ago, a hurricane approached the Outer Banks and authorities ordered an evaluation. But, as in Hawaii, people had nowhere to go. One official said, We cant help these people if they keep ignoring evacuation orders. Hello? People dont just evaporate. They have to go somewhere else, hopefully somewhere safer. The wealthy or well connected probably had a bolt-hole. The prescient ones got out early, before things got bad. But those who didnt or couldnt were stuck. Weather conditions, clogged bridges, gasoline shortages prevented their leaving at all. Fortunately, the emergencies in Hawaii and North Carolina didnt materialize. They were false alarms. But the emergency last September in Florida was not a false alarm. As we know all too well, Irma was a Category 4 hurricane that scored a direct hit. Just as in Hawaii and North Carolina, people were caught unaware. Several friends guessed right about Irma and flew or drove out in advance of the storm. Many in retirement villages or assisted-living quarters had blocks of rooms reserved in advance in resorts or big hotels to the north. Others had friends in hardened structures, built or renovated to withstand Category 4 or 5 winds. But most didnt get away or have access to bunkers. Some shelters were made available, but they filled up quickly. The 28 shelters used during Hurricane Irma housed only 17,000 of the Collier Countys 360,000 residents. Most people were left stranded. Meanwhile, water and batteries were snapped up, pharmacies were closed, gasoline disappeared, highways north were clogged, hotels were filled well into Georgia. And our officials, completely unprepared, were issuing hysterical orders: Leave now! Go before its too late! But the vast majority of Collier Countys 360,000 residents had no place to go. It was government at its worst. In fairness, our local officials probably did no worse than those in other counties. There was dysfunction all around. But the past is past. The question now become: Are we going to do better next time? What are we doing to prepare for the next Irma? The answer, unfortunately, is very little. The feds are teeing up hurricane relief for Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. FEMA is providing belated payments, and the state is anteing up some money for repairs. But planning for the future is almost non-existent. There are ideas but no action. Here are some proposals from a state study: Place utility lines underground. Build gasoline and diesel distribution depots along north-south highways. Use rail transport to speed vital supplies to key distribution points. Double down on facilities for the disabled, e.g., those needing dialysis and cancer treatment. Ensure generator backup for nursing homes and urgent-care centers. County officials have focused on improving storm-water drainage to minimize flooding and on fitting lift stations with generators to keep sewage out of the streets. Civic groups have proposed other measures. Establish in advance a guaranteed number of shelters, and make directions to those shelters widely available. Expand the signup registry for the chronically ill and disabled, and ensure that specially equipped shelters are available. Publicize media outlets, including AM or FM radio frequencies, that provide information on approaching storms. For the vast majority of people who cannot or will not evacuate (most of our 360,000 residents), provide guidance on how to remain safe in their own dwellings. To prepare for the next major storm, publicize building codes and recommendations for strengthening windows, roofs and exterior walls and installing hurricane shutters. Some of these ideas would cost little to implement. Others are expensive and would have to compete with other projects. And funds are finite. Tallahassee is being whipsawed between education, taxcutting, the opioid crisis and environmental issues. Collier County is facing hereand-now problems on affordable housing, infrastructure spending and growth management. Money is limited, and the memory of Irma is fading fast. Whats the bottom line? Dont expect much improvement in emergency preparedness. At least not here and not now. Maybe in Hawaii and North Carolina, but not here. My wife and I are hardening our house and hoping for the best. Several neighbors have moved to safer locales. But the indigent workers in Immokalee and elsewhere have neither of those options. Their best hope is there will never be another Irma.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Genese Gene Vertus Director of information technology for the Sarasota-based DSE Inc.One of five children born to educators in a small Haitian mountain town that depended on subsistence farming, Gene Vertus arrived in Miami on Christmas, 1985, at the age of 9, with his parents, three sisters and a brother. Speaking only Haitian Creole and French, all five children learned English, adapted to American schools and customs, graduated from high schools in the Miami area and then earned college degrees and advanced degrees. My father wanted us to come to the greatest country in the world to get an education, and from there to become whoever we wanted to become. Who would not want to take this opportunity to be in this great country? We thought at the time, this is a country of hope, of being able to become whatever you want to become if you apply yourself. If you put your mind to it. Thats what we thought then, and thats what I still think. Among the challenges they encountered was hostility not just from Anglo-Americans but from African Americans and others who saw them as invaders, Mr. Vertus recalls. But he became as American as any a fine basketball player who started on his high school team, North Miami High (he now coaches young teens), a trumpet player (hes an acquaintance if not a friend of Wynton Marsalis), and a fine student. We went through the process of getting visas then becoming temporary residents, then permanent residents, then American citizens. I didnt think of the process as a burden at all. Now with two high school-age sons, an undergraduate degree in Information Technology from Florida International University and a masters in biblical studies, Mr. Vertus is an elder at Mt. Hermon Ministries in Fort Myers under the leadership of Dr. William Glover. For eight years before that, he served as pastor at a church in the Haitian community, founding the nonprofit Passion Rescue Mission in 2009 to help children in the village of his birth, the year before a calamitous earthquake struck Haiti. Now, hes built a school that anchors the town, and named it after his late father, a lifelong missionary and educator who, like many Haitians, thought education was the greatest hope for his children to lead better lives: the Genecoit Vertus School of Excellence. Without access to this free education more than 90 percent of these children would have no education at all, Mr. Vertus says. Not just a few children, either. About 225 are currently enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade. Using donations to Passion Rescue Mission, we supply school uniforms, books, tennis shoes and meals. Sometimes the kids could go a couple days without a plate of food, so we try to put an end to that. When Mr. Vertus heard his birthplace country described disparagingly by the president recently, he shrugged it off and tried to move on, he said. And he talked to his American-born sons about it, too. I reminded them of what others have said: that no matter what people say about you, you have dignity. You have worth. Someone might think your dad and your mom came from a shithole country, but stop and look at us: Look at what we have accomplished! As an American and a Haitian, he insists, theres no place for bitterness about such comments. If I am bitter, I let them define who I am. And I will not let that happen. We supply school uniforms, books, tennis shoes and meals. Sometimes the kids could go a couple days without a plate of food, so we try to put an end to that.Gene Vertus is an IT professional, father, husband and church elder. This is a country of hope, he says.SEE TEMPEST, A9 ly became part of the national debate whether they wanted to or not, either because of their countries of origin or because of their associations with those countries, in particular Haiti. We know the challenges: Haiti suffers from economic poverty, from very harmful and destructive foreign policies starting from its birth as a country, and from sometimes disastrous natural cataclysms (such as the 2010 earthquake), says Skyler Badenoch, a former Peace Corps volunteer who worked in West Africa for a decade before joining the nonprofit Hope for Haiti, based in Naples. We also know that only tells part of the story. The other part is this: Theyre incredibly talented and smart, incredibly resilient and generous a people who just dont have the same opportunities we have here. Like so many others, therefore, they make extraordinary and loyal Americans, given the chance. TEMPESTFrom page 1 Skyler Badenoch is CEO of the Naples-based Hope for Haiti.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 NEWS A9 Mack BernardPalm Beach County commissionerWhen Mack Bernard was a little boy, everybody around him kept telling him how lucky he would be to escape Haiti and come to the United States. Without parents they vanished from his life when he was 3 he and his sister, two years older, lived in the care of an aunt and a grandmother who did everything they could to make that happen. On six occasions, beginning when I was 4, I tried and failed to get a visa, he recalls. Finally in 1986, when I was 10, I succeeded the same year Baby Doc Duvalier (a Haitian leader) was exiled, and the country went into chaos. So my aunt sent my sister and me together. She was 12. We took the Eastern Airlines flight on Sept. 12, 1986, and a taxi picked us up at the Miami airport and dropped us at the house of a friend in Delray Beach. Life in America began with a struggle faced by other immigrants speaking other languages from many other places over time: to learn English and become American in style and appearance. Some people in the community didnt have a good impression of Haitians, and even African American kids would fight the Haitian kids, he says. When he started middle school at 14, he and his sister began working together, going door to door to solicit subscriptions for a daily newspaper. We wanted to be grown up, to take care of the bills, he explains. At Atlantic High School he joined the ROTC program and did dual enrollment, graduating in 1995 and enrolling at Florida State University in Tallahassee, where his sister had already started her higher education. The siblings lived in a tiny apartment together and Mack loaded up the classes on his schedule each semester, sometimes taking as many as 21 credit hours. I didnt have the money to keep going to school, so I finished my degree in two years, he says earning a joint major in political science and criminal justice.Mack Bernard was only getting started. He returned to Palm Beach County, opening a shoe store in West Palm, then decided to enter law school. I wanted a chance at the American dream, he says simply. A bigger dream than the shoe store provided. Winning acceptances to the law schools at both Florida State and the University of Florida, he chose Gainesville, and never looked back. In three years, he earned not only a law degree, but a masters in tax law. Back in Palm Beach County, he decided to go into public service to contribute heart and soul to the fabric of his adopted community and country, he says. His choices reflect a drive to lead from the beginning: He joined the chamber of commerce with other clubs and organizations. He volunteered for community events and became a Delray Beach city commissioner in 2008. Then he went on to become a state legislator for three years before winning a seat as the first black man on the Palm Beach County board of commissioners, where he is now vice mayor. With his wife, hes raising his three Americanborn daughters, ages 10, 9 and 3. When a public protest against disparaging comments aimed at Africans and Haitians took place earlier this month, I had my wife and three girls there, marching, he says. I want my daughters to understand their civic duties. The comments didnt change anything for him, however. Mr. Bernards feelings about the United States remain the same as they once were. For me, I consider this, America, the greatest country on earth. All the dreams I had about America when I came here thats the same way I feel about it, still today. There is nowhere on this earth that a young kid who wasnt raised with natural parents could come at the age of 10 and reach the American dream in terms of going to school, working hard and going to college, becoming a lawyer and still having the opportunity to serve, and be a father and husband. Yes we have some faults; but the American dream is still alive. I didnt have the money to keep going to school, so I finished my degree in two years.Who are our immigrants, either African or Haitian? Here, you will meet a Haitian-born woman, schooled and raised in Miami, who climbed to the highest point in Africa more than 19,000 feet above a continent with 54 countries two years ago, on a Fulbright scholarship in Tanzania; and the man, her brother, who returned to his poor and underserved Haitian village to build a school for 250 children with no other access to education. Youll meet a man who arrived at Miami International Airport from Haiti with only his 12-year-old older sister in tow, began working at the age of 14, and eventually graduated from the University of Florida Law School to later become a state legislator and now a Palm Beach County commissioner. Youll meet a woman with a selfdescribed posh accent who decided with her husband to surrender all the considerable comforts and assets of their lives in South Africa the government required them to abandon what they had at the time to bring their two very young children out of a nation hobbled by apartheid and into the greatest country on earth. And youll meet the lawyer whose father, a professor from the African west-coast nation of Liberia, saved the family by moving them back to the U.S. before a violent civil war so his son could take advantage of the American dream on behalf of those who never had the chance. At various times, Americans have demonstrat ed doubt and anger or good cheer and bonhomie toward our immigrants. In each generation, weve offered them either a generous welcome or a sharp rejection; either significant misunderstanding and resentment, or a progressive embrace of the men, women and children seeking better lives here. For more than half our immigrant history weve too frequently demonized immigrants themselves. We still do. Demonizing a nation of immigrants today is somewhere between ironic and perverse, says Jeff Adler, a Harvardtrained historian, author and professor of U.S. urban immigration and criminology at the University of Florida. As (others) have suggested, some of the people who have voiced support or tacit support or even a passive defense of rejecting people by nationality, are the grand or great-grandchildren of immigrants who would have been excluded from the United States if the same ideas had been presented and acted upon when their families came. Immigrants to the U.S. today are dwarfed in number by those who arrived once, even within the living memories of some citizens. In a single 35-year period beginning in 1890, 24 million immigrants entered the country. The numbers were huge, says Professor Adler. This wont be true in 10 years, but its still true today, in 2018: For more than 50 percent of Americans, the first person in our family to come to the U.S. can be traced to this immigration. Making generalizations about who our immigrants were then or are now is risky at best, but two things become significantly clear in asking how they got here, why they came, and how their view of the U.S. might have changed since they arrived: First, theyre among the hardest workers we have. And second: This is the greatest country on the planet, in their minds, with the broadest and most accessible opportunities for those who arrive with little in their possession. No other country would do, and there is no question of leaving. To a person, they are fierce and staunchly loyal patriots. (Editors Note: Genese Vertus is the brother-in-law of Florida Weekly writer Roger Williams.)The Bernards, Mack and Shawn, want their daughters Macall, 10, Mackenna, 9, and Kennedy, 3, to understand that peaceful protest can be a civic duty.TEMPESTFrom page 8 Jeff Adler, professor of history and criminology, University of Florida.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Sunny Lubner Community volunteer and actorBorn and raised in a family of Orthodox Jews who reached South Africa from Lithuania and Israel, Sunny Lubner grew up in a sophisticated city, Johannesburg. Her circumstances were more than comfortable. We had three house servants, she recalls. When I came to the United States, I didnt even know how to make tea. Do you boil the water or do you boil the milk? But there was a problem: Ms. Lubner, like her parents and her husband, Clive Lubner, was a moralist. I was a young mother of two, about 10 minutes into my 20s, when my husband and I decided we were not going to raise our children under an apartheid regime. We never dreamed for a minute that democracy would come to South Africa someday, or that we would have such a wonderful father of that democracy, Nelson Mandela. We left in 1978 when he was in prison, where he languished for 27 years. Our daughter was 5 and our son was 3. The first thing that struck me when we arrived here, was that you people drive on the wrong side of the road. Sunny and Clive might have gone a number of places with their two young children Paris, London, Rome but they chose the United States without hesitation. They came poor, too. South Africa required them to surrender any assets and all the wealth they had, if they chose to leave. So they did, making the moral decision. There was never a question of where we would go, she says. We loved the idea of America, we loved the ideals of Americans. My father, who was a history and civics buff, told me at a young age about the U.S. Constitution. He pointed to the word Happiness has there ever been a country that worried about happiness? Plus, my husband was in business, and America was a place he thought he could succeed. And he did. Now, Clive Lubner and his family own and operate the highly regarded Naplesbased firm, Clive Daniel Home. Daniel is their son. Their daughter, Claudia, works in the family business as well. Getting to that point, and getting to be Americans, wasnt a simple cake walk, even if the Lubners were white and educated with posh accents, Ms. Lubner notes. She learned to make tea, along with everything else. It took them four years just to get green cards, and they had to hire an immigration attorney we couldnt afford at the time to do that. Agonizingly, she chose not to fly home to her fathers funeral because immigration officials might not have let her back in the country, she remembers a heartbreak that hasnt gone away. The day she and Clive and the children got their American citizenship, I sobbed my heart out. They gave each of us an American flag. She recalls of her joy and pride in that moment. Ms. Lubner remains proud of immigrants and proud to be an American immigrant, she says not only from the African continent where 54 nations carry on with distinct cultures and histories, but proud of immigrants from everywhere else, too. She considers immigrants a special breed, characterized in large measure by a willingness to work, and by gratitude. I think immigrants work very hard Im not saying harder than Americans to become contributing members of society. We keep our noses clean. Were so appreciative of living in a democracy. I remember when my children were young, every Fourth of July I would trot out all my flags and caps and pins and everything. Id give them a lecture about how lucky and proud they should be to be Americans. And were all still so proud to call ourselves Americans. I think immigrants work very hard Im not saying harder than Americans to become contributing members of society. Peter Dennis LawyerPeter Dennis has an immigrant engine in a nativeborn body, so to speak. His father, from the small West African country founded by American slaves in 1822, Liberia, met his mother, an Ohioan, while teaching in the Buckeye state. Mr. Dennis was born in Michigan before his father moved the family back to Africa, to the village where he was an ancestral chief. For young Peter it all started there, living in a village with no electricity, playing in the surrounding rainforest with friends and family members who took care of each other, and never suspecting he would lose them that he would feel compelled throughout his life to succeed as an American on their behalf. Fortuitously, Mr. Dennis dad returned with the family to the U.S., taking a teaching position at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor just ahead of Liberias brutal and bloody civil war that began in 1989. Eventually the family moved to Southwest Florida where his mothers parents had retired. In looking back in time, he postulates, what happened to me in high school and college and afterward came about because of them, those people I lost. The peaceful, lively temperament of his village, Peter and Amanda Dennis want their children, Benjamin, 9, and Mali, 11, to live in the present but remember the past. Sunny and Clive Lubner surrendered all their assets to bring their children out of apartheid South Africa to the greatest country in the world. SEE DENNIS, A11

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 NEWS A11 Genise VertusPublic school teacherIt was the biggest, best Christmas gift she ever received: to arrive in the United States on Dec. 25, 1985, as a 7-year-old, with four siblings, including Genese Gene Vertus and her parents, a girl out of Haiti in body but never in spirit. I felt like it was a gift to have access to all these educational and economic opportunities we did not have in Haiti. In the (almost 35) years since Ive been here, thats always been my view: How lucky I am. Lucky and sometimes troubled by the cruel and wrong-headed stereotypes some people continue to hold toward Haiti and Haitians. Haiti is the only country in the world that became a country as a result of a successful slave revolt, Ms. Vertus points out, recalling that remarkable New-World moment when slaves on the Caribbean island rejected French rule in a violent upheaval starting in 1791, winning freedom and independence by 1803.So, when I think of Haitians, I think we are the first people to do something no other nation in the world has done. I think we are freedom lovers, we are strong, were a resilient people. And moving forward we need to tell our own stories rather than letting ourselves be stereotyped by those who dont know us and have never been to Haiti. Part of being disrespected is, were not telling our own stories. Consequently, Ms. Vertus explains, shes begun looking for ways to share with the world the story of my people and what we did, starting with childrens literature. What she did personally, or has done so far, is nothing short of remarkable. She had to learn English while going to American public schools in Miami and coming home to a family that spoke Haitian Creole or French around the supper table and at church; she became a stellar student who won a full scholarship out of high school to the University of Miami; she now holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, Afro-studies and early education; shes beginning work to earn a doctorate; she teaches public school to struggling children in Athens, Ga. (shes thinking about moving back to Florida, she says); and she won a prestigious Fulbright scholarship to travel to Tanzania in 2016. There, mountaineers guides reinvigorated her deeply held belief that good teachers, great teachers, must be trusted, because they can not only save your life, they can lead you to the top of the world. So I go to Tanzania. What do you do when you go to Tanzania? she asks? You climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, of course. Or course. Well, some climb Mr. Kilimanjaro, and some dont make it. The thing is 19,341 feet above sea level, towering above the continent of Africa. I actually paid to do it, like a seven-day expedition, she says, breaking into incredulous laughter. Climbing Kily was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life here is this little black Haitian girl on top of Africa. Its the coldest I have ever been. And whats the one thing that got me up Kily all the way? The guides. They believed I could do it more than I believed I could do it. So not knowing what I was getting myself into, I trusted them. I knew they were going to do whatever it took to get me up that mountain. Im a teacher, and its so important to me if we can just get our students to trust us. I didnt know how, I didnt know the way, but I trusted them. Here in America, and in Haiti, the great equalizer is education. And that depends on teachers, the guides to the future. Not that Im the most successful or the wealthiest person, Ms. Vertus says. But I am who I am because I could read. I came to America, and I got an education.An education shes passing on to countless others. So, when I think of Haitians, I think we are the first people to do something no other nation in the world has done. I think we are freedom lovers, we are strong, were a resilient people. When I look at all the family members and friends, at the people who were killed in that civil war after we left, thats the majority of people I knew.At and fabulous, Genise Vertus is a teacher, dancer and Fulbright scholarship recipient. Rahoun, where his mother was welcomed warmly, disappeared, becoming a refugee camp of Liberians who suffered mass killings, torture and rape during the civil war. When I look at all the family members and friends, at the people who were killed in that civil war after we left, thats the majority of people I knew, he acknowledges. And I know for a fact a lot of those kids were smarter than I was. But Mr. Dennis had an advantage they didnt his mother was an American. But for that chance of fate I could just as easily have been there, and dead, he admits. Instead, I had these opportunities to explore all of this stuff. So I always felt this responsibility toward those kids, my friends and family, who didnt make it. Who was I to squander the possibilities offered in America? Its a responsibility you feel toward your family and friends, always. Squander it he didnt. Mr. Dennis graduated from Fort Myers High School, winning a full academic scholarship to the University of Florida, then working in Washington, D.C., and sleeping on blow-up mattresses until he could get furniture. One day, a friends father took him aside to make him an offer: If Mr. Dennis could get into a top 10 law school, hed loan him the money to pay for the education, interest free. So the young man did, ultimately graduating from New York University Law School, then joining a national firm with a Naples office to work in civil law before deciding, finally, to become of all things a public defender. What drew me to law in the first place was working with people, he says especially people who need help and have no resources. He did that for years, before finally deciding to enter private practice. To hang a shingle with his name: Peter M. Dennis. The M. is a lot more than a toss-away initial, for Peter. It represents his Liberian name, Morlu. It comes from Liberian relatives never able to reach the United States or to have the opportunities Peters parents struggled to give him.. I sign that full name on every legal document because I never want to forget, he says. It reminds me of exactly who I am. You always carry that with you. Ill carry that with me for the rest of my life, even as memories of what my family and friends once looked like, what they sounded like or smelled like, what their jokes were, what the particulars of our relationships were even as those fade, the essence of what they are stays with you. DENNISFrom page 10 Haitian immigrantsAlmost 680,000 Haitians now live in the United States, including at least 213,000 in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area, and tens of thousands each in the Orlando area, the Tampa Bay area and the greater Fort Myers area, according to the Migration Policy Institute, using data from the U.S. Census. Elsewhere, only New York City ranks in that range of numbers, with 167,000 Haitian immigrants.

Dreams of a career in fashion come true with help from foundation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYJonathan Cantu was a junior in high school when he realized what career field he wanted to pursue: fashion. How he would get there, however, was a mystery. I had heard about all the good things The Immokalee Foundation had been doing for high school kids in the community and figured it was worth a shot, he recalls. So he wrote a letter to TIF about how much he wanted to attend a summer program at the Art Institute of Chicago to prepare for a future in fashion. Thats when doors began to open. Not only did he spend that summer at the Art Institute of Chicago, he also attended another at the Illinois Institute of Art. While working on body casting, painting, art history and fashion design, he created a 10-piece designer garment collection and earned his first three college credits. I had no idea how awesome The Immokalee Foundation really was, he said when he returned to Immokalee after that summer. This opportunity has really changed my life, and I feel like this will provide me numerous opportunities in the future. And it has. Mr. Cantu can pinpoint the day when he thought he just might be able to make his dream of a fashion career come true. He had many firsts traveling to Chicago: plane, train and cab rides. That was the point where I felt like I could do it, he recalled recently. Before that, I always had a creative drive in me, but I never knew anyone who did fashion. And there was nothing in or around Immokalee to support that. The foundation helped connect him with fashion curricula, contacts and scholarships. While his parents dream was for him to go to college, neither had taken classes beyond high school. Money was tight as he and his three older siblings were growing up in Immokalee. Because of those opened doors and his hard work, today Mr. Cantu is a fashion design graduate of Philadelphia University who has worked for Nautica, QVC and at just 25 years old is now an associate manager for Lilly Pulitzers Coconut Point location. His job combines his expertise in fashion with service to the community. He works with nonprofits in Lee and Collier counties on behalf of Lilly Pulitzer to organize Shop n Share sales, where guests are invited to shop on a certain day with a percentage of sales donated to a chosen service organization. Its the biggest part of my job, and I find it very rewarding, he says. Its a very cool thing to be able to do. I reach out to organizations to try to get them the best event possible, and that SEE TIF, A14 CANTU

The companys mission became very personal to Mr. Cantu in November, when he organized a Shop n Share and raised $860 for TIF at Lilly Pulitzers Naples and Coconut Point stores. A three-year board member and producer for the Fashion Industries Association, Mr. Cantu now serves as an inspiration in his field. Just as importantly, he is an inspiration at home, as well. Watching her son go to college helped Mr. Cantus mother see her future differently: She went back to school and is now a nurse. His stepfather advanced in his career as well, becoming marketing director for a home health agency. Theyre extremely proud of me, Mr. Cantu says. Its clear that he is proud of them, too.

Offer Expires 2/1/18 BEHIND THE WHEELAlfa Romeos Giulia aims for your driver heartAn Alfa Romeo is an emotional experience. This Italian company tries to tap into your soul with the way its cars look, feel and sound. The new Giulia presents this passion under the veil of a practical sedan. The exterior design stops people on the street, literally. There was more than one occasion when onlookers snapped a picture of the Giulia at stoplights, including one in the middle of a crosswalk. Its that kind of reaction that can make ownership worthwhile. After all, in the quest to drive something distinctive, having a stranger stop in the middle of a busy road to get a photo is an instant affirmation of something special. What makes this instant connection with owners and admirers is the cars willingness to be dramatic. It has a unique face with soft, rounded features that are interlaced with sharp creases. These features shouldnt flow so well together, but there is an underlying confidence that makes it instantly attractive. Much of this poise comes from the deep V-shape of the classic Alfa Romeo grille that has been fashionable long before Valentino or Armani. So yes, the Giulia is like an Italian love affair on wheels. The profile and rear are far less intense with their design lines. Its not boring. Instead its a proper acknowledgement that making every surface different for the sake of difference turns confidence into confusion. Inside is a similar situation where a few stand out exotic pieces smartly pepper a practical layout. For example, the leather interior is standard on all trim levels of the Giulia. There are some stunning layouts available like the red and the black with white accents. These have a premium appearance that drives home all the best stereotypes of Italian fashion. But where the latest runway chic rarely looks like it could never be worn to a neighborhood dinner party, this interior is clear and well laid out. In fact, to some, the base model might feel a little too simple. The base Giulia costs $38,990, and it is not a stripped-out vehicle. But it does feel a little different than its competition like the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. The Alfa likes to centralize its controls on the sports steering wheel so that the driver can control nearly everything with just his/ her fingertips. There are fewer redundant controls on the dash and center console, and thus it gives the impression of being less features-filled. The only place that this perception might be true is on the standard 6.5inch infotainment screen. Its a little small for its large integrated opening in the dash, and for such a prominent placement, it feels like it should be doing more. The solution to this is the bigger 8.8-inch screen that really belonged there all along. It adds satellite navigation, handwriting recognition and more features, but it also pushes even the most basic Giulia over $40K. While that kind of pricing is not cheap, the Giulia sings its way into enthusiasts hearts every time the engine starts. The standard motor is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This is the new standard in the small luxury sedan world, but Alfas power plant has a much more athletic growl than direct competitors from Lexus, Cadillac, Mercedes and even the performance-minded BMW. Of course it also helps that the Giulias motor produces 280 horsepower, which makes it the powerhouse of bunch (theres an ultrahot 505 hp Quadrifoglio edition that we will save for its own review.) This extra power is a key part to the overall appeal. The Giulia is out to give owners a sports car experience. Its steering is tight, and the suspension is nimble. So there needs to be a motor that not only has the bark of performance, but also backs it up with a powerful bite. Thats how the Giulia captures the drivers emotions. It has all the right ingredients to get your heart pumping a little faster, and Alfa Romeo even took the time to put substance behind the style. Its the little Italian sports car for those who still need to drop the kids off at school. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The ad, which appears in the Swedish magazine Amelia, invites women who think they might be pregnant to urinate on the paper to reveal a discounted price. Peeing on this ad may change your life, the ad reads at the top of the page. If you are expecting, you will get a surprise right here in the ad. Adweek reported that the agency behind the gimmick adapted pregnancy test technology to work on a magazine page.Recurring themesIn more extreme weather news from Australia, The Daily Telegraph reported on Jan. 8 that record high temperatures near Campbelltown had killed more than 200 bats, found on the ground or still hanging in trees. Cate Ryan, a volunteer with WIRES, an Australian wildlife rescue organization, came across the flying foxes and put the word out for volunteers to bring water to rehydrate the bats that were still alive. I have never seen anything like it before, Ryan said. Ninety percent of the (dead) flying foxes were babies or juveniles.Bright ideaChris McCabe, 70, of Totnes, England, escaped a frigid death thanks to his own quick thinking on Dec. 15. McCabe owns a butcher shop, and he had entered the walk-in freezer behind the shop when the door slammed behind him. Ordinarily that wouldnt be a problem, as a release button inside the freezer can open the door. But the b utton w as frozen solid. So McCabe looked around the freezer and saw the shops last black pudding, or blood sausage, which he used as a battering ram to unstick the b utton. The y are a big long stick that you can just about get your hand around, McCabe told the Mirror. I used it like the police use battering rams to break door locks in. Black pudding saved my life, without a doubt. He believes he would have died within a half-hour in the -4-degree freezer.Ironies In Albuquerque, N.M., a churchs new electronic bells are creating a living hell for neighbor Bernadette Hall-Cuaron, who has lived next to Our Lady of Guadalupe for years. The bells ring multiple times a day during the week, and play Amazing Grace during the week, and then they run multiple times again during the weekend, she told KOB-TV in January. Because of the volume and frequency of the bells, this is not calling people to the church. HallCuaron called the church to complain, but said since her request, they have added Amazing Grace every day ... a full verse. The pastor responded that he has lowered the volume but will not turn off the bells completely, as some in the neighborhood love them. One of Quebec Citys iconic tourist attractions is its ice hotel, the 45-room Hotel de Glace. But on Jan. 9, the hotels most dreaded disaster, a fire, broke out in one of the guest rooms, the CBC reported. Manager Jacques Desbois admitted that when I received the phone call, they had to repeat twice that there was a fire in the ice hotel. Predictably, the flames did not spread and caused little damage to the structure, although smoke spread throughout the hotel and residents were evacuated. In a room made out of ice and snow there are few clues to look at, Desbois said, although each room has candles, and the hotel is considering the possibility that one of them caused the fire.Family valuesAlyce H. Davenport, 30, and Diron Conyers, 27, of Southbridge, Mass., couldnt make it to the funeral of Audra Johnson, Davenports mother, on Jan. 5 because they were busy stealing a safe from Johnsons home. Southbridge police started searching for the pair after Johnsons boyfriend discovered the safe was missing, reported The Worcester Telegram & Gazette. When police stopped Davenport the next day, they found the safe in the trunk of the car she was driving (also registered to Johnson) and seized it. Davenport and Conyers were arrested at a Sturbridge motel, where officers found jewelry, keys, cellphones and other documents, and the two were charged with seven counts related to the theft. Alyce has a history of larceny, identity theft and forgery, the police report said.Armed and frustratedLinda Jean Fahn, 69, of Goodyear, Ariz., finally succumbed to a frustration many wives suffer. On Dec. 30, as her husband sat on the toilet, she barged in and shot two bullets at the wall above his head to make him listen to me, she told Goodyear police when they were called to the scene. Fahn said her husband would have had to be 10 feet tall to be hit by the bullets, ABC15 in Phoenix reported, but officers estimated the bullets struck about 7 inches over the mans head as he ducked. She was charged with aggravated assault.Creme de la weirdAn unnamed 41-year-old Chinese woman who had been suffering from fevers and breathing problems for six years finally went for a checkup in early January at a hospital in Tongchuan, Shaanxi Province, China. Doctors X-rayed and found an inch-long chili pepper in her right lung. Metro News reported that Dr. Luo Lifeng tried to remove the pepper using a probe but was forced to operate because it was lodged too deep to reach. He speculated that she had inhaled the pepper and then forgotten about it. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

About the New Years Day case, neonatologist Susan Miller writes: At about 5:15 p.m. the NICU was notified of a mother in labor at term who lost all fetal heart tones, so an emergent C-section was in order. The obstetrician was not in house, nor were any, so we were up against the clock for the baby. Our team assembled in the OR included nurses Marie Rogers and JoAnn Charlton and respiratory therapist Gaylin Breese. Dr. Thomas Beckett, the first OB to respond, delivered the baby promptly after he arrived, 21 minutes after the loss of heart tones. Needless to say, my team had to act quickly and smoothly to save the babys life. A full code ensued and at three minutes we had some sign of life. We took the baby to the NICU for hours of intensive care. The NICU nursing staff on the day shift and night shift were amazing. We even had an OB nurse, whom I had never met before, not only help us with the epinephrine in the OR but also follow us to the unit to help get equipment. Other NICU nurses, including Anna Valle, Sue VanGamert Sue Moran, Michelle Beaney and Collin McGrath, worked as a team to ensure we had everything we needed for the baby. Lines were placed, blood given, cooling bed started I am incredibly proud of this effort, proud of the NCH team (those named and unnamed on the sidelines) and grateful to be a part of such a fantastic group of care providers. A few days later, a day-old newborn who seemed to be thriving was noted by alert Mother/Baby colleagues Jan Brennan, LPN, and Terry Ferko, RN, to have an abnormal Critical Congenital Heart Disease assessment, which SEE WEISS, A27 Findings could have implications for development of flu vaccines NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHPeople with higher levels of antibodies against the stem portion of the influenza virus hemagglutinin protein have less viral shedding when they get the flu, but do not have fewer or less severe signs of illness, according to a new study published in mBio. HA sits on the surface of the influenza virus to help bind it to cells and features a head and stem region. Scientists only recently discovered that humans naturally generate anti-HA stem antibodies in response to flu infection, and this is the first study of its kind to evaluate preexisting levels of these specific antibodies as a predictor of protection against influenza. Its authors believe their findings could have implications for flu vaccine development.Scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, conducted the research by exploring immune responses to two influenza surface proteins: HA, the main target of traditional seasonal flu vaccines, and neuraminidase. The head region of HA is constantly changing, which is why influenza vaccine strains must be updated each year. The HA stem region, however, is less susceptible to change, making it a potential target for novel vaccines aimed at broader, more durable protection. In the new analysis, investigators sought to understand the role of preexisting anti-HA stem antibodies in protection against influenza using data from a healthy volunteer influenza challenge trial that took place in 2013 at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md. Led by NIAIDs Matthew J. Memoli, M.D., the trial enrolled 65 healthy volunteers aged 18 to 50 years. Participants stayed in a specially designed isolation and infection control unit throughout the study. Investigators measured their baseline levels of anti-HA stem antibodies, infected them with a 2009 H1N1 influenza virus and then measured levels of anti-HA stem antibodies again. They found that all volunteers had antiHA stem antibodies at baseline, although levels varied, and 64 percent of participants had increased levels after infection. However, people with higher levels before exposure had smaller increases, suggesting there could be a limit that humans can achieve naturally. Trial investigators also closely monitored participants symptoms and the amount of influenza virus they shed from the nose, which may indicate how contagious someone is. Similar to findings regarding anti-HA head antibodies, they found that participants with higher baseline levels of anti-HA stem antibodies had reduced viral shedding, but no significant reduction in the duration or severity of illness. The results show that people naturally make anti-HA stem antibodies, but that responses vary significantly, and also that these antibody levels are not independent predictors of whether someone becomes sick or if so, how severely. The authors note that antibodies against NA remain the only identified predictor of disease severity. Although the data are limited, the results have implications for novel influenza vaccine design. The authors note future strategies ideally should focus on more than one aspect of immunity. Careful consideration of the complexity of influenza immune protection and evaluation of all aspects of the anti-influenza immune responses will ultimately be necessary in the development of a successful broadly protective or universal influenza vaccine, they said. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org

Applications are being accepted through March 31 for the Dr. William Lascheid Memorial Scholarship for medical students and for students enrolled in or accepted to health-care degree programs. The Dr. William Lascheid Memorial Scholarship honors and remembers former CCMS president and Neighborhood Health Clinic co-founder Dr. Lascheid and his tireless efforts to provide care to the underserved in Collier County. Florida residents who are enrolled in or accepted to medical school and who have demonstrated excellence in service to their community are encouraged to apply. The foundations health-care student scholarships are based on academic merit and contributions to the community. Financial need may also be considered. We were thrilled to award $32,500 in 2017 through our scholarship program, and look forward to rewarding more deserving students in 2018, said Dr. Rolando Rivera, chair of the foundation board of directors. Applications and requirements are available at www.ccmsfoundation.org and can also be obtained by calling 435-7727 or emailing info@ccmsonline. org. prompted a consultation by pediatric cardiologist T anku t Onal, chair of pediatrics at NCH. A non-invasive diagnostic test, an ECHO cardiography, was ordered. Both of the newborns mentioned here were transferred to Nicklaus Childrens Hospital, the nearest pediatric hospital offering the necessary care (potential cardiac surgery). Latest report is that both are doing well. We deliver 3,600 babies every year at the Birth Place, and our numbers are growing as our communitys families expand. Over more than a decade, our 24/7 in-house neonatologists have helped countless families keep their precious newborns close to home. We also have around-the-clock in-house anesthesia so we can keep moms-to-be comfortable and perform an emergent C-section quickly anytime needed. Our numbers are exemplary for avoiding pre-39 week delivery, as the babies fare much better when they grow to maturity in utero. We encourage breastfeeding and try to avoid C-sections and other procedures that might not be needed. NCH teamwork, competence and our advantage of being close to home and always open help the newest citizens of Collier County get a strong start to longer, happier and healthier lives.

CELEBRATING OUR 16TH YEAR! PET TALESLike cats and dogs BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy dog Harper thinks cats are to chase. Shes the first of our dogs who didnt grow up with a cat in the household. I introduced her to our neighbors cat when she was a young puppy, but unfortunately, I didnt have easy access to other cats she could meet, and she never learned to live compatibly with them. Thats a problem when we visit friends and family with cats. Harper growls and barks when she sees them, and she wants nothing more than to chase them away. I keep warning her that one of these days we will have a cat again ourselves, so she had better prepare herself for the idea. The idea that cats and dogs dont get along is a common belief Harper certainly believes it but its not necessarily true. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Association, 46 percent of households with pets have multiple types of animals. Cats and dogs are the most common combination, found in 32 percent of pet-owning households. There is always the potential for conflict between two or three, if you count the humans in the mix species who have differing habits and communication styles, but pets living together can become good friends. Ive seen it with our previous pets and those of people I know. In homes where the humans are away all day, a dog and cat can keep each other company and often play and sleep together, groom each other, and team up to get in trouble. If youre introducing a pet of a different species into your family, the following tips can help the meeting go smoothly and, ideally, a friendship develop. Introduce them first by scent, not sight. Isolate a new cat in a small room for a few days with everything he needs: food, water, litter box, toys. His scent will drift out to your dog, and the cat can get used to your dogs scent as well. After two or three days, let the cat explore the house while the dog is in the yard or on a walk with someone else. Maintain control. Its never a good idea to just turn animals loose and hope for the best. Thats a recipe for fear, anxiety and stress on the part of all involved. Have your dog on a leash, and make sure your cat has an escape route. Having ample getaway spaces for cats, such as tall cat trees or gates with a cutout that the cats fits through but not the dog, is essential, says Mikkel Becker, lead animal trainer for Fear Free Pets and co-author of the upcoming book From Fearful to Fear Free. A dragline attached to a harness can help to prevent bolt-and-chase sequences during the settling-in period, Becker says. Until youre sure pets are getting along, supervise interactions and separate them when youre not around. Hand out treats liberally to both parties. This worked well with Harper recently when we were visiting family with cats. She was rewarded every time she looked away from the cat as well as for not growling or barking. You want both pets to think that being in the presence of the other is a good thing. Dog trainer Liz Palika has fostered many litters of kittens with the aid of her English shepherds. Her best piece of advice in one word? Patience. A friendship between a dog and a cat cannot be forced, she says. Let them gradually get to know each other and provide safe places where t hey can get away from each other. Pets of the Week>> Dakota is a 1-yearold Akita mix who weighs about 42 pounds and has medium energy. He likes belly rubs, human attention and other dogs. Hes good on his leash and is ready to learn more. >> Fiona is a 1-yearold Labrador retriever mix who weighs about 45 pounds and is full of energy. She knows some basics and loves to please, but is still young and needs some training. >> Rose is a mellow 2-year-old domestic shorthair who is sure to charm you with her big, beautiful eyes. >> Rusty is an affectionate 3-year-old domestic shorthair with big bronze eyes and thick, rich coat. He came to the shelter through no fault of his own and deserves a loving forever home.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services, where adoption fees for dogs and cats are just $18 through January. Fees include sterilization surgery, vaccinations, pet license, ID microchip and a bag of food. Visit DAS at 7610 Davis Blvd. from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. MondaySaturday. For more information, call 252-7387 or visit www.colliergov.net/pets. Introducing them when theyre young is the best way to foster a canine-feline friendship, but older pets can make friends, too.

CALL NOW TO EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE! Welcome! Youre never too old to trip the light fantasticIve never felt quite as young as I did when my husband Todd and I attended the Moody Blues 50th Anniversary Tour concert last week. Were only separated in age by seven years, but the fact that Todds teen years were spent mostly in the 0s and mine were mostly spent in the s makes a big difference when it comes to music. Hes not into my New Wave s playlists at all and doesnt care a bit for my Breakfast Club soundtrack. By the same token, when he puts on the screeching guitar sounds of Black Sabbath or Thin Lizzy, I cover my ears with my hands So, when we lucked into a bunch of free tickets to the Moody Blues, I thought I was taking one for the team. Granted, it was a Sunday night and the tickets were last-minute, but I got on the phone to see if I could get some friends to join us. With a few exceptions, nearly everyone I called moaned and groaned at the prospect and not because they didnt want to see a legendary rock band, but because they didnt want to be out past 8 p.m. on a night before work. They were either too tired, too cold (it was in the low 60s that night) or too daunted by crowds. I looked up the ages of the band members the youngest is 69, the rest of the boys are in their 70s and theyre touring stadiums for more than two hours every night and living out of a bus. Meanwhile, my friends in their 40s and 50s couldnt stay up past 8 on a Sunday night. Truth is, between you and me, I kind of wanted to back out as well it truly was a little chilly and I really was kind of sleepy. But Todd was jazzed up. His groovy Aunt Janice, a 0s era hippie chick, had introduced him to her Moody Blues album collection when he was in junior high school for him, the music held memories. Unfortunately, with the exception of Nights in White Satin, I couldnt name a single song. I wasnt the only one who felt like a spring chicken when we got to the concert most folks were in their 60s and 70s, so even Todd was grateful that he still has his original knees and hips. One guy with a walker sported a gray pony-tail and a faded Moody Blues concert T-shirt. There were grandmothers in furry vests and grandpas in pleather pants and everyone was so excited and in great spirits. Its different going to a rock concert with an older crowd theyre not particularly rowdy, but its clear that they used to tear it up back in the day you can see it in their eyes. As soon as the lights went down, the smell of weed filled the air as the aging rockers took the stage and it turned out that while I couldnt name all the Moody Blues songs, I remembered most within the first few chords. Tuesday Afternoon, Im Just a Singer, Ride My See-Saw and their hits from the s, Your Wildest Dreams, I Know Youre Out There Somewhere and more. I was totally into it and so was everyone else though I did see a teenager with dreadlocks, either there with his parents or grandparents, fast asleep in his seat. Bless his heart it WAS a school night. About half-way through, the lights went up and an unseen voice announced, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Moody Blues will return after a 20-minute break. An intermission at a concert? At first I was perplexed, but then I saw all the long lines at the bathrooms. Hey, nature calls for rock stars and rock fans alike. In the end, most everyone stayed for an energetic, fun encore and a wildly appreciative ovation. There were no fights, no public drunkenness and we were all home by 10:30, reminding me once again that no matter how old you are, life is too short not go out on a school night. Or as Ferris Bueller once said in 1986, Life moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com 8635 Collier Blvd. Naples (239) 908-5878 2470 Immokalee Road Naples (239) 908-5918 17830 Ben Hill Griffin Pkwy.

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWith the attention the new community of Babcock Ranch, which is in Lee and Charlotte counties, has been making with its solar and other green initiatives, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties have been seeing a growing green trend in commercial buildings. It began with the Florida Green Lodging movement more than a decade ago, and has spread to grocery stores, storage businesses, banks, grocery stores, nonprofit organizations and other housing developments. Lower solar equipment costs and tax incentives have fueled the trend.In South Fort Myers, the Mirada development by Lennar Homes boasts the first community in Southwest Florida where every home comes with solar panels. Babcock only benefits FPL and the community marketing, not the homeowner, said Dominick Zito, sales manager of the Florida West Coast division of project installer Urban Solar. The residents at Babcock are still charged full retail or higher for their power to pay for all FPLs solar fields. The green advantage is directly to homeowners when they have individual systems on their roofs. Urban Solar also installed the largest private solar conversion in Collier County in 2016 at William C. Huff Companies. The firm provides climate-controlled storage for primarily high-wealth families who are rebuilding their homes or receiving shipment of expensive items, said owner Jim Henderson. He has been so pleased by the results of his 528 solar panels atop his 44,000-square-foot building, he has expanded his business to constructing affordable, hurricaneresistance, solar-ready homes. When Im offsetting my electric bill and at same time producing a negative carbon footprint, I have an immediate return on investment, he said. He explained that he financed his solar installation over seven years with the same monthly payments he had been making for electricity. Its a wash, and its the right thing to do for the environment. Once his system is paid off in 2023, his electricity basically will be free for the remaining life of his panels, which is typically 25 years. The utility companies dont want you to know that, said Mr. Henderson. Besides converting to solar power, William C. Huff Companies recycles and reuses 500,000 pounds of cardboard each year, in addition to wooden crates. Trucks in his fleet are low-emission. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank also realizes the value in going solar since the fourth quarter of 2016, at two locations on Sanibel Island and in Fort Myers. In 2017, we offset our carbon footprint by 59,720 pounds, said Jonathan Ruiz, senior vice president and director of IT and facilities. Thats equivalent to saving 696 trees. In terms of dollars, the two bank locations realized annual savings of about 31 to 34.5 percent, he added. The banks have replaced all fluorescent lighting with LED bulbs, installed energy-efficient air-conditioning units and are in the process of going completely paperless. The LED lighting had the added benefit of increased productivity due to less eye strain for employees. Solar was our biggest progress toward going green, said Mr. Ruiz. We care about the environment and want to support our community. Its a win-win. The initial investment was big, but were seeing (improvement) over the long run. We did use SanCap Solar Connect to get hooked up, so we also saw a savings from that. In November 2015, the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, the friends group for the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, formed SanCap Solar Connect as a way of lowering costs for the refuges facilities to convert to solar along with other businesses and residents on the islands. It was the first community-wide coop to form in Florida for the purpose of leveraging group buying power to bring down solar installation rates. It resulted in more than 30 conversions in about four months. It was deeply gratifying to see our vision realized, a vision to offer local consumers savings on solar energy conversion through collective buying, said John McCabe, chair of the SanCap Solar Connect committee. We congratulate Baileys, San Cap Bank, and other visionary partners who have already begun to see their conversions making a difference. It just goes to show what great achievements can happen when the community works together. In August, Solar United Neighbors will begin a similar three-month program in Collier County with a focus on residential. The refuge has already converted its maintenance building and hopes to begin work this year on its administration building and Ding Darling Visitor & Education Center. The nonprofit Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation also used the program to install solar panels at its Bailey Homestead Preserve and Native Landscapes & Garden Center.At Baileys, 268 panels have already been installed, making it the largest solar installation on Sanibel. Mr. Johnson expects to add another 300 to 350. As part of the stores green makeover, he has transitioned to sustainable product in his seafood market. He removed six water heaters and is using excess hot water from his refrigeration system in his kitchens instead. He is finding ways to reduce packaging and has begun purchasing paper straws rather than plastic ones. He, too, has gone the LED lighting route.I have replaced zero lightbulbs in two years, Mr. Johnson said. He admitted that he was paying more to responsibly dispose of the old fluorescent tubes than he was paying to buy them because of the mercury. He believes most green measures result in bottom-line savings as a bonus. We live in an environment here that is sensitive and somewhat fragile, said Mr. Johnson. If we dont take good care of our environment, its going to be our undoing. GREENFrom page 31Baileys co-owner Richard Johnson explains how the stores greening began at the beer refrigerator.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Investing Errors to AvoidIts inevitable that if you invest in the stock market, youll make mistakes some of them costly. Learn to avoid the following common blunders, though, to minimize losses: Not paying off credit card debt before investing. Youll likely lose more in interest than you gain in stocks. Investing too conservatively. Longterm investments are likely to grow most rapidly in stocks, so dont just leave your money in savings accounts, bonds or CDs. Investing too aggressively. Dont aim for fast, huge wins via penny stocks, margin investing, day trading or any other risky and speculative venture. Its safest to aim for steady growth over decades by investing in healthy and growing established companies. Overor under-diversifying. If all your eggs are in two or three baskets, youre exposed to too much risk. But if you have too many baskets to count, then you probably arent able to keep up with each company. Owning 10 to 20 stocks is a good range for many people. Focusing too much on a stocks price. A cheap stock isnt necessarily a bargain. Penny stocks trading for less than $5 each are often likely to fall. A $200 stock can be a bargain that will grow well for you, and you can always buy just a few shares. Investing in what you dont understand. The more familiar you are with how a company works and how well its performing, the fewer unpleasant surprises youll likely encounter. Relying on tips. Its fine to learn from others, but do your research and make your own decisions. Not tracking your returns. In the long run, you always want to be beating a benchmark such as the S&P 500. If youre not beating it, you might as well meet it by investing in an index fund. Impatience. Building great wealth takes time. Dont expect to get rich quick. Learn more by checking out the How to Invest section at fool.com. Dumb in Several WaysMy dumbest investment has to be Under Armour. It wasnt dumb just because it tanked. It was dumb because: 1. It didnt fit with my portfolio thesis at the outset, but I bought due to the growth hype anyway. 2. I didnt pay enough attention to the fundamentals of the stock (growth rates, profit margins, debt levels, etc.). 3. I didnt look for or consider risks, such as the outsized control wielded by its founder and CEO. 4. I ignored negative social media commentary floating around in cyberspace. I still own it, but Im not buying any more even at low prices, because I dont think the CEO is a jockey worth backing for the long haul. Ill just leave it there, a bright red carbuncle in an overall wellperforming portfolio. If it grows, good. If it doesnt, Ive only got another $1,000 left to lose. Fortunately, the rest of my portfolio is doing well enough to mitigate the regret D.C., Capetown, South AfricaThe Fool Responds: Some analysts today are bullish about Under Armours restructuring, cost-cutting and international growth prospects, but others worry about weakness in the North American market, brand erosion and strong competition from Adidas and Nike. If you have little faith in the company, youd be better off moving your remaining $1,000 into something that seems more promising to you. Home, Sweet ProfitsAccording to the National Association of Realtors, existing home sales recently surged to their highest levels in more than a decade. At the same time, the U.S. Census Bureau continues to report strong residential construction data, with building permits and housing starts consistently above the 1-million-unit mark for more than two years now. Yet as healthy as the housing market has become in recent years, low-cost housing has remained a challenge. After more than a decade of struggles resulting from coming of age during the worst financial crisis in nearly a century, millennials are making money and starting families. Theyre ready to buy homes, but there just isnt enough inventory to meet the demand. Meritage Homes (NYSE: MTH) is taking advantage of this situation, dedicating roughly 70 percent of its recent land purchases to entry-level houses. Its paying off, driving up profit 15 percent last quarter. (It helps that low-cost new houses often generate higher profit margins than bigger, more custom-built homes.) Since this is currently the least-served part of the market and also the one with the most near-term growth potential, its a great time to be building entry-level houses. Well positioned for further growth and with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 14, Meritage Homes is cheaper than most of its peers. (The Motley Fool has recommended Meritage Homes.) I trace my roots back to the 1818 founding of a tr ading c ompany in Amsterdam. In 1884 I started a grain trading business in Argentina, expanding to Brazil in 1905 and North America in 1918. Today Im a global agricultural giant based in White Plains, New York. I sport a market value of more than $9 billion and employ about 32,000 people. I buy, sell, store and transport oilseeds and grains; process oilseeds to make protein meal (for animal feed) and edible oil products; produce sugar and ethanol; mill wheat, corn and rice; and sell fertilizer. Who am I? (Answer: Bunge) Lots of OptionsQMy retirement accounts are funded, Ive got a brokerage account, an emergency fund and no credit card debt. What now? Should I invest in more stocks or real estate or make extra payments on my 4-percent mortgage? C.S., HoustonAThose are all good options. Paying down your mortgage is the least risky one, and would be like earning a guaranteed 4-percent return, since youll not be paying interest on any principal you pay off. Real estate investing isnt as easy as it can appear. Youll need to have a good grasp of the local market and must be willing to deal with the work and hassle that come with property ownership. Remember that real estate can tie up your money and that property values can fall or not grow quickly. The stock market can also drop, but it has always risen over long periods, beating most other alternatives, such as gold, bonds and even real estate. Think about whether you want to put in the time and work involved in real estate or stocks. Will you enjoy keeping up with your properties or your investments? If not, perhaps pay down the mortgage, or invest in a simple, broad-market index fund, such as one based on the S&P 500. ***QWhats a trust? A.G., Lancaster, Pennsylv aniaAIts a legal structure that features someone (a trustor) giving control of property to a person or an institution (the trustee) for the benefit of someone else (the beneficiary). The beneficiary owns the property, but the trustee controls it usually for a limited period (such as until the beneficiary reaches a certain age). A trust is often part of an estate plan.

B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRobb & Stucky brings chic sophistication to Seaglass modelRobb & Stuckys Susan J. Bleda ASID and Rachelle Porco have created a chic, sophisticated interior for the 804-tower residence model at the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower being built by the award-winning Ronto Group within Bonita Bay. The 804 residence is one of three furnished models now open for viewing with a sales associate by appointment only. The additional models were designed by Cinnabar Design and Renee Gaddis Interiors. The model interiors include finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio located at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive in Bonita Bay. Rontos Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to visit the Design Studio and select finishes for their new home. Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three luxurious tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air and are priced from the low $1 millions. Sales contracts worth $148 million have been processed and the building is more than 70% sold. The 3,088 square feet under air 804 tower residence floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Bleda and Porcos design exudes chic sophistication while providing an exceptional level of livability. Set against a background wall tone of sandy bisque that runs throughout the home, their color palette includes light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass are layered with matte gold and silver metallics to evoke a sense of wave-smoothed seaglass. Furnishings are clean lined with fabrics that include the textural diversity of leather against cotton and linen. Upon exiting the elevator into the residences private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces evoke a sense of being beachside, a hint of the ambience that awaits beyond the foyer doors. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric is set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water. Double doors open into the foyer where a side wall accommodates a putty colored console table and a stylish wallmounted mirror. A rug adds a layer of texture and warmth. The foyer opens to the great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking blue sky views through sliding glass doors. In the living area, Bleda and Porco included a 10-foot wide fireplace installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. The fireplace surround is clean and contemporary. Extra thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass is lighted from above to create bright display space. Two sofas set perpendicular to the fireplace are upholstered in bisque linen. Charming accent pillows provide textured contrast while maintaining tone-on-tone elegance. Two easy chairs face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a massive 60 x 60 cocktail table makes a statement. To highlight the adjacent dining area, Bleda and Porco designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier illuminates a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console stands against a wall adorned with a matte metallic finish. The contemporary L-shaped kitchen features a counter-height island with space for food preparation and casual gatherings. Counter stools in a matte gold finish are upholstered in bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes were selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. In keeping with the seaglass theme, many of the cabinets feature frosted glass fronts. The bisque color scheme continues on the terrace. Bleda and Porco selected a collection of wicker furniture in neutral tones. The generous space allows for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view feels like a natural extension of the beauty inside. The den and two spacious guest suites both open to another terrace. The multi-purpose den offers a relaxed space that can function as an office, a lounging area, or an overflow bedroom. Bleda and Porcos design includes light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a desk. An armchair and ottoman are grouped with a sleeper sofa. A hallway leads from the great room to the master suite where the neutral wall tones deepen slightly. The seaglass motif continues in this serene private retreat. A contemporary four poster bed commands attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect is solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser is entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her walk-in closets leads to the master bathroom where the design includes sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper. The Ronto Group is also developing Naples Square, TwinEagles, and Orange Blossom Naples. Eleven Eleven Central on Central Avenue in downtown Naples was announced and released for reservations earlier this month.

This is an opportunity for our residents to get involved in a new community and practice lifestyle medicine, he said. Babcock Ranch is really organized around that thought with its trails, a restaurant serving healthy foods, and the idea of giving people a place to live and to live healthy.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBeach club sets Mediterra apartI hope everyone had a great week! Last week, I enjoyed my first golf experience at Mediterra and it was amazing! I told my Sales Executive, Lisa, all about it, and then mentioned that I would really like to revisit the communitys 10,000 square-foot Beach Club. Its just a short drive from Mediterra on Little Hickory Island. Lisa had taken me there several weeks ago, and I thought it was amazing. No other community I had considered as a possible place to live had anything close. That first Beach Club visit was quick, and I wanted to go back and find out what it was like to spend an afternoon enjoying the setting. So, Lisa gave me a pass and I went back by myself. When I arrived, I noticed there is plenty of on-property parking. No worries there. An elevator took me to the second level and opened to a beautiful bar and indoor dining room. I explained the nature of my visit to the hostess. She smiled and proceeded to give me the lowdown. It turns out the Beach Club was recently remodeled. Whoever did the interior design knew what they were doing. The room conveys the magic of the beach with colors reminiscent of the sand and water and South Beach casual elegance. Everything looked comfortable and on-trend to me. From what the hostess told me, once the renovation was completed, the bar area took on a sportier feeling with large screen televisions. It also morphed into a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. An extensive wine list includes 20 wines for just $20 per bottle. The dining room opened to an al fresco dining area right on the Gulf of Mexico. The breeze was delightful! I decided to sit outside and they sat me at a table on the railing closest to the beach. After ordering a glass of Pinot Noir, I looked at the menu and was pleasantly surprised. In addition to on-the-beach casual dining favorites like burgers, wraps, and gourmet sandwiches, it included complex dishes, such as such as seared ahi tuna with a glass-noodle stir fry and smokedchicken pasta with sun-dried tomatoes. When I asked the server about the menu, he explained to me that the Beach Clubs culinary team is overseen by Carmen Mauceri, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and winner of the American Culinary Federation Award of Excellence and Chef de Cuisine for a Presidential Dinner. He also oversees the dining menus at the Mediterra clubhouse. Executive chef Chris Fragola and sous chef Shane Dorey, both of whom are certified chefs de cuisine, vary the Beach Clubs menu on a regular basis while retaining the diners favorites. I do not know of any other community beach club in Southwest Florida that offers that level of expertise. As I enjoyed my beachside lunch, I took in the surroundings. Right next to the Beach Clubs outdoor terrace dining area, I was taken by the Clubs elevated swimming pool that features a sundeck overlooking the Gulf. Enthusiastic attendants were setting up beach chairs and umbrellas for the sun worshipers down on the beach. After I finished lunch, I ventured down to the beach to enjoy the breeze and the sunshine. Afterwards, I stopped by the ladies locker room to freshen up a bit. As I should have expected, the locker room had everything I could have possibly needed all the basics a lady likes to have after an afternoon at the beach. I decided to have a glass of wine at the bar before heading home. I got into a conversation with a couple who have lived at Mediterra for several years. They raved about how wonderful it was to have the Beach Club. They went on to talk about the awards Mediterra has won, including the Collier Building Industry Associations 2017 Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year Over $1 Million. The award marked the eleventh time Mediterra has been honored as CBIAs Community of the Year in the past 15 years. But, that was just the start. They told me The Club at Mediterra has been designated as both a Top 50 Platinum and Distinguished Emerald Club. The Emerald Club designation puts Mediterra in the top 5% of all country clubs in the world. The Club was named recipient of an Aurora Award for Best Residential Development within the Southeastern United States and is number 49 on the Top Tier Club list, a list voted by 6,000 club managers nationwide. No other club in Collier County is included. Mediterra has also been named the Best Place to Retire in Florida and 10th best in the world since 2014 by Best Retirement Destinations. In addition, The Club at Mediterra was named one of the healthiest Clubs in the United States, and was the first private residential Club to be honored with a Green certification. The Club is home to the worlds first golf course to be recognized as an Audubon Silver Sanctuary. I had no idea Mediterra was such a prestigious place! What a wonderful day! The sunset was awesome! Im going to be gone for a few weeks visiting family for the holidays. Ill be back in touch soon. In the meantime, all the best! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Visit Mediterra online at MediterraNaples.com. Above: The Mediterra Beach Clubs elevated swimming pool features a sundeck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

B24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays clubhouse a phenomenal amenityClosings continue in Tower 1 If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and fourbedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which just opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And 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. 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. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents will also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincides with the completion the communitys first residential tower. Closings in Tower 1 started at the beginning of January, stated Lodge. By the end of the month we anticipate 100 of the towers 120 residences will be closed. The completion of Tower 1 and the commencement of closings comes just weeks after the buildings rooftop amenities were completed, including the rooftop pool, which is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the sky lounge, and an open-air fitness center with cantilevered roof that opens and closes. 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 Lodge. From up 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. She added, We had very high expectations for our sky amenities and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level. Only six residences remain in Tower 1. However, residences in Tower 2, which was released for sale in the summer of 2017, are also available. The 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 3,919 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, which will have similar rooftop amenities as the first tower.For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

Florida Realtors News recently published their list of the 2017 major factors affecting our 2018 Florida Real Estate Market. These included low inventory of homes, and the resultant escalation of prices to levels just below the peak of the real estate bubble. The upcoming run-up in Florida values, resulting from the Tax Reform bill, along with the crushing winter weather to the north, may make those issues pale in comparison. A lack of state income and inheritance taxes will likely drive people from frigid high-tax states to the sunny shores of Florida. Unfortunately, they stand to encounter a short supply and stiff pricing if they are dreaming about waterfront living. That isuntil they discover Useppa. Useppa Island is the pre-eminent Florida value for waterfront, boating and gulf access properties. The values in this tiny community of 115 homes, all within a Private Club that encompasses the entire island, are still at the pre-bubble pricing level. A consequence of competing in the arena of Big Destination Names, this Private Island gem has no commercial marketing engine, Visitor and Convention Bureau or Chamber of Commerce. Neither will you find choking traffic, strip malls or high rises that block the senses, views and tropical breezes. Useppa is the Undiscovered Destination, that Secret Place where you can capture your dreams. Opportunities on Useppa include a buyer friendly inventory of waterfront homes, with Townhouse style attached villas from $525,000 to $875,000, and single family homes from $1,050,000 to $3,500,000, many furnished and all with dockage available. Useppa Island is the Big Secret -a private island exotically tropical and modestly priced; the glistening location just south of Boca Grande Pass. A quick 15 minute boat ride to the mainland, dont miss your chance to Find Your Key to Paradise. Make your escape to Useppa Island.

B28 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSand and shell design captures feel of Florida in London Bay Homes Port Royal Estate modelMesmerized. Since my husband and I gazed out at Cutlass Cove from London Bay Homes Port Royal estate model at 4375 Gordon Drive, weve thought of little else. I picture myself hosting a fundraising luncheon for the girls; hes already planning day and overnight cruises on our new yacht. After meeting with Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design, were even more infatuated with this home. Weve already seen some of Michaels selections the gorgeous gray mosaic pool and spa tile, high-gloss white kitchen cabinetry and the white-washed light ash wood flooring. He showed us interior design plans, which include mid-century furniture paired with tropical accents and the colors of Florida the white of sugar sand beaches and accents inspired by the shell of the states native conch. We love the emphasis on clean lines and how the architect and design team created a cohesive look throughout its 6,394 square feet. The modern interpretation of West Indies architecture by Stofft Cooney Architects reminds us of the villa we rented in Providenciales. Michael also revealed plans for the decorative art glass wall between the floating staircase and formal dining room nine cast-textured glass panels with a wave and bubble design. He talked about those large windows and the beautiful water views of the cove and Gordon Pass, with the mangroves of Keewaydin Island in the backdrop. The scenery is what everyone notices, he told us, and I couldnt help but wonder who everyone is and how many other homebuyers are interested in the estate. Of course, there are plenty, I thought. It has the perfect location in Naples most prestigious neighborhood close to Third Street South, accommodates a boat up to 37 feet, is absolutely stunning inside and out, and will be ready to move right in when London Bay wraps up construction and Michael works his award-winning magic in March. We also saw snapshots of the sunrise from the bay windows of the master bedroom, two second-floor guest rooms and the terrace. Motorized blinds showcase the morning spectacle without having to get out of bed. The kitchen is a dream for entertaining with its six-burner Wolf range and infrared griddle, coffee system and cup warming drawer how cool is that?! It also has a large SubZero refrigerator and separate freezer, and three additional refrigerators and beverage centers. The freestanding island is large and has a galley sink and twin faucets. Michaels vision for the master bedroom includes cream fabric, shellcolored accents and Venetian plastered wall and ceiling details. We imagine snuggling up in the large chaise lounge for two in the bay window alcove. Venetian plaster repeats in the master bath, which has rich cappuccino polished marble floors, horizontal rift-cut oak cabinets with a shell finish and his-and-her water closets. The second floor is ideal for our steady stream of winter guests. Four private bedrooms with resort-inspired bathrooms and designer sinks, and a shared loft and lounge and wet bar. My mother-in-law will feel right at home in the guest apartment; our daughter will adore the VIP suite and its aerial views of the pool and cove. When work calls, my husband has his own space: A quiet study with natural light, zebrawood built-ins, a vintage pine and rustic silver desk and animal print upholstered lounge chairs. Of course, lounging by the pool and the firepit will likely be a daily event if were not out on the boat or enjoying our membership eligibility at the Port Royal Club and Cutlass Cove Beach Club. To schedule a visit and learn more about London Bay Homes exclusive downtown Naples opportunities, call Toby Cloutier at 239-280-7367 or visit LondonBay.com.

B30 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRonto introduces Omega, the final luxury high-rise at Bonita BayThe Ronto Group is accepting reservations at Omega, the final high-rise tower to be built within Bonita Bay. Designed by Miami architect Robert M. Swedroe, the 26-floor Omega tower will feature 63 tower residences and four penthouses. Pre-construction pricing starts in the mid-$2 millions. The design conveys an out of market perspective on luxury and offers an approach to high-rise living never offered in Southwest Florida. Ronto has taken advantage of high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass. The result is larger, wider living spaces with tall windows that will offer views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The living spaces, owners suites, and some of the guest bedrooms will open to outdoor terraces featuring 42-inch high glass railings. The buildings exterior will have a modern look that projects bit of design flare. Ronto designed Omega from the inside out based on preferences expressed by potential purchasers who indicated view corridors and spacious, open floor plans with large living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were critical to their living experience. Functionality and comfort were more important than form. Rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a residence with less square footage, the potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives in a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space or livability. The Omega tower and penthouse residences offer the square footage and width found in an estate home built on 110-foot home sites. The residences will feature ceiling heights of ten feet four-inches, or eleven feet fourinches in the penthouses, except where dropped, to create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling existing high-rise residences. Our goal was to offer something that has never been offered in Southwest Florida, said Ronto Group president Anthony Solomon. We were creating a new living experience for our customers, not for us, and they knew better what would work. We listened to what they wanted and designed accordingly. We created a three unit per floor approach that allowed the residences to be wider and more spacious. We included air-conditioned storage outside the residences, large outdoor living spaces, huge kitchens and great rooms, tall ceilings, and king-sized guest bedrooms. We also listened when it came to the amenities. Functionality and amenities that would be used daily were paramount. Our customers had as much to do with the design as we did. Omega is the final high-rise at Bonita Bay. We want it to be special. Omega will feature three tower residences per floor and two penthouse residences per floor on the buildings two uppermost floors.

Long Island mansion no longer a nightmare Money Pit TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMOne of the most infamous homes in movie history is for sale. The Money Pit estate on Long Island is on the market at $5.9 million not as it appeared in the 1986 movie with Tom Hanks and Shelley Long as its beleaguered owners, Walter and Anna, but more like a candidate for a feature in House Beautiful. After the film crew finally left, the house still needed massive repairs. Fortunately, a real life couple came along and bought the 1898 mansion named Northway, and immediately got to work. It took four years and a team of designers, contractors and decorators to turn it into a jewel box that scriptwriters and set designers for The Money Pit could never have imagined. Every detail has been addressed, from the elaborate moldings to the gleaming ebony wood floors to the formal gardens. The 23-room home has seven ensuite bedrooms plus a four-room master suite, an eat-in kitchen, eight fireplaces including one in the grand foyer, large formal rooms, a study, pool and pool house. The brick terrace overlooking the gardens and woods is a perfect place to sit and ponder your next home improvement task. The asking price is $5.9 million, and the listing agents are Lois Kirschenbaum and Margaret Trautmann of Daniel Gale Sothebys in Locust Valley, N.Y.

Enjoy a front-row seat for Palm Beach polo season TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMHigh season in Palm Beach is in full swing, perhaps nowhere more so that at the International Polo Club, where for the next several weeks horses and riders will compete for more than half a billion dollars. Many of the 6,000 horses in the seasons events come from stables nearby in Wellington, which has been home to many who participate. Bill Gates, Bruce Springsteen and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg all own homes in Wellington, where their daughters compete in the events. One prime polo estate is on the market this social season. Windsome Farms is an 80-acre facility in Wellington with everything imaginable for serious riders and their trainers: 52 stalls with tack room, a Grand Prix field with natural jumps and hills, three training rings, 19 paddocks, lakes and an automatic walker. Its the place where many Olympians have stayed and trained. Accommodations include two one-bedroom apartments and an owners lounge with kitchenette and full bath as well as a riders lounge with kitchenette and half bath downstairs. There is also enough pristine land where one could build the estate of their dreams. Marley Goodman Overman of Illustrated Properties has the listing for $25 million. COURTESY PHOTOS COURTESY PHOTOS

Were excited to announce our ofce is now open for business. MARCO ISLAND LOCATION950 N. Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSA trio of gruesome murders raises questions about Wall Street shenanigans Perish by Lisa Black. Kensington. 320 pages. Hardcover $26.This is Ms. Blacks third Gardiner and Renner novel, and there are some signs that it might be the last. I hope not. These thrillers are so reliably macabre, so brimming with fascinating forensic detail, and so well-crafted that Id hate to see this odd couple break up. This one begins with a bang and never lets up. Cleveland forensic expert Maggie Gardiner has never seen a body so decimated. The gorgeous leader of the Sterling Financial operation has been pretty much shredded. Although blood is all around, the clever killer has left no trace of his (or her) entrance or exit. Nothing has been stolen. Nothing revealing has been left behind. The kind of forensic evidence that is Maggies bread and butter just isnt there. No break-in. No furniture tossing. The most curious item is a suspicious statement, in plain view, of a $600 million Panamanian account in Joannas name. How did this young woman put together such a fortune? Did she make enemies in the process? Secretive Joanna Moorehouses lacerated throat seems a gruesome icon of the cutthroat world in which she has become a major player. Who would want her dead? Those who lost their homes by being conned into taking out unaffordable mortgages? Or who had supposed fixed-rate loans turned into adjustable ones? Perhaps. How about her business rivals? Or maybe members of the firm who might ascend to the throne? Did she dump her boy-toy? Working with the police team of Jack Renner and Tom Riley, Maggie needs to find the answer. Sorting through the possible suspects connected with Sterling Financial means sorting through the intricacies of their work practices. To open readers to this world, which echoes the situation leading to the 2008 financial collapse, Ms. Black gives us an amazingly readable lesson in the shoddy business of bundled mortgage derivatives and related financial chicanery. Watching Maggie, with or without Jack and Tom, explore the possibilities is great fun, at once vividly detailed and increasingly suspenseful. As they interrogate possible suspects, gathering information and learning about Sterling Financial, we see true professionals at work. We also come to understand the working partnership of Renner and Riley and the difficult relationship that binds Jack and Maggie. After all, how and why does one manage a relationship with a vigilante killer? Yes, dear reader, if Jack Renner cant bring criminals to justice the usual way, hell do is as an assassin. As the plot develops, the unthinkable happens. Two other attractive women, both of them connected to Sterling Financial, are found killed victims of the same kind of brutality and the same escape artistry. Once the investigators noticed that the three victims are somewhat similar in appearance, that observation alters ideas about the perpetrators profile. Is Maggies appearance so very different? To complicate things even further, a case being explored by Maggies ex-husband, who is also on the Cleveland police force, seems to have a possible connection to Maggies case. Though they have a sort of truce, Maggie is not comfortable working with her ex. I dont know about you, but I love this stuff. And no one handles the psychological and technical dimensions of such crime fiction as well as Lisa Black.New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Black introduced the characters of Maggie Gardiner and Jack Renner in her acclaimed suspense novel That Darkness and continued their story in Unpunished. She is the author of seven novels in the Theresa MacLean mystery series and two novels written as Elizabeth Becka. As a forensic scientist at the Cuyahoga County Coroners Office, she analyzed gunshot residue on hands and clothing, hairs, fibers, paint, glass, DNA, blood and many other forms of trace e vidence, as well as crime scenes. Now she is a latent print examiner and CSI for the Cape Coral Police Department, working mostly with fingerprints and crime scenes. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe art world in thrall for almost 40 years. Neapolitans, several of whom are avid collectors of his work, can view and purchase one of their own little beasties at Harmon-Meek Gallerys upcoming solo exhibition of Mr. Slonems recent work Jan. 29 through Feb. 8 in Naples. Educated at Tulane University but inspired by his travels as a Navy kid in Hawaii and as a young adult in Central America, Mr. Slonem is one of the few artists in history to have exhibited in solo exhibitions on every habitable continent during his lifetime and is represented by 40 prominent galleries. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Museum of Modern Art all boast works in their permanent collections that depict the little bitty creatures that roam the earth or fill the sky, and sometimes they capture the landscapes where they live. The artist doesnt know why hes so inspired by the beauty of animals or objects that get lost in the landscapes that surround him. He lives his life surrounded by over 60 exotic and geriatric birds who need care, renovating abandoned plantations and mansions, and painting the sweet little animals that humans have steeped in symbolism and lore since we all started talking about such things. Why does he like them? And why are they so popular? Who knows? God. Lightning struck, he said. I never know why anything happens. Its not a calculated decision and thats whats so different about my work. When the stoppers removed theyre just sitting there waiting. Theyre all things Ive loved since I was a child raising orchids in Hawaii. Ive had one of my macaws for 45 years. Hes in his 70s. Mostly, it seems Mr. Slonem is a creature of comfort and it is easily expressed in his work. Collecting enormous mansions in New York and Louisiana, filling them with antiques and spending an eyepopping amount of cash on maintaining dozens of exotic birds in their dotage (not a light pastime) all speak to a person who finds beauty and value in Gods creatures and their surroundings. Im an impassioned collector, he said. I just get more and more stuff that I hope to leave as a foundation. Each day begins as it has for decades, with a study in bunnies, the subject that has gained Mr. Slonem the most mainstream popularity. For many collectors, bunnies as a subject are positively Slonemian and his wet-on-wet paintings grace the walls of fine galleries and even a Kardashian house. But his wildly popular bunny series started about 40 years ago when he found 19th century portrait frames and decided to arbitrarily paint rabbits for them. Ever since, hes devoted time each day to watching how they change or whether to improve upon them. I dont know why things catch on or why they happen, he said. When I repeat a theme, very interesting changes occur because Im not stressed over the subject matter. In Harmon-Meeks exhibition, guests can purchase several bunnies executed with diamond dust, a crushed silica additive, which was suggested to him by his dealer in Bulgaria. Its sharp, he said. Its like painting on sandpaper, a very different thing People want to see something new and this is actually very sparkly and it has a pizzazz that brings it more into peoples attention. This catches the eye of the colors Kris Kardashian bought one and its on the show all the time. Now her daughters are getting one. Theyve been very popular. Another subject on display is a frog his partner, Gary, found loose in the truck while they were transporting plants to their Louisiana plantation, situated outside New Orleans on Bayou Teche. He said theres something wet and gooey on my steering wheel and it was a frog, Mr. Slonem said. Hes kept the frog alive for about three years now and it triggered a series of frog paintings. Local collector Dan Johnson has several Slonem paintings depicting a wide array of his staple subjects, from butterflies to birds to bayous and of course, bunnies. The colors, I think, are what sort of attracts me to his paintings, he said. I started collecting them about seven years ago and have been picking it up piece by piece. The Slonem works lead his collection, which also contains works by artists like Robert Vickrey, Paul Arsenault and Dorothy Gillespie. We have a really small apartment with lots of stuff in it, but every one of the Slonems weve picked out, weve picked out that particular one, Mr. Johnson said. Were looking for things that are a little more colorful and interesting, not your normal things. He kind of leads our collection. Harmon-Meek Gallery started exhibiting Mr. Slonems work in 1996; about 12 have been solo shows. In that time, Mr. Slonems reputation and popularity has grown into the gallerys early estimation of his work. Hes really become a household name in certain circles and youll see Hunts work in the background of magazines like Architectural Digest or in the background of movies and television, said gallery director Kristine Meek. Once you see his works, its so distinctive youll start to see it everywhere. The fact that Mr. Slonems paintings have been incorporated into the permanent collections of so many prestigious museums, universities and cultural institutions highlights the fact that a work of Mr. Slonems has a lasting value to the gallerys clients. Theres art that sells and has commercial value, but when a museum acquires a work, its a long process, Ms. Meek said. You cant even donate very easily, so you know theres going to be some permanence. The artists might be remembered and enjoyed for generations. And his paintings are just a joy to look at, she continued. She personally owns two Slonem paintings, a pair of lovebirds she selected in high school and a bunny in her sons nursery. To be honest, I just think his work is beautiful, and I think art should be beautiful, she said. It should be something you want to surround yourself with and I love seeing his work every day. I like sharing it with other people and you can tell from his work that hes a great person who enjoys his life. Their clients seem to agree, said her father and gallery owner William Meek. When Mr. Slonems works are displayed with other artists, they seem to magnetically draw in viewers. Its just interesting how people who have never seen his work in a group exhibition at our gallery just pick it out as their favorite without prompting, he said. They just love it and its an interesting test. Its just an observation that people gravitate to it and it puts a smile on their face. Harmon-Meek Gallery displays a solo exhibition of Hunt Slonems work Jan. 29-Feb. 8 at its main gallery, at 599 Ninth St. N., Naples. A reception is scheduled for 5:30-7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 COLLECTORS CORNER I seldom regret the purchase not made scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com Careful what you wish for. So goes the adage. You may get something in spades. But sometimes, wishful thinking pays off. Case in point: A piece of 1940s Melba Ware I spotted in a Fort Myers thrift shop. The British-made pottery butter or cheese dish reminds me of American-made Hull and McCoy pottery of the same era. Its decidedly old-fashioned, pretty, pastel and forward looking, at least in its optimism. And I admired it, but decided to pass on it as you might have guessed, I have one old-fashioned, pretty, pastel and forward-looking treasure too many at my house. I later regretted the decision not to buy, then forgot about the piece. Fast-forward to Christmas morning. My sister hands me a bag. You can sell this, if you want to, she says. I open it and its the piece of Melba Ware of course, I wont sell it. Things always have a way of working out, which is why I seldom regret not buying something. I thought about that during a recent estate sale I visited. There, on the shelves, was a pair of Heisey Old Williamsburg candelabra in the rarely seen Sahara color. They were priced at $450, but the market has softened from a couple of decades ago, when they would have been priced at double that. Oh, that richly hued yellow glass glowed from the shelves, but where would I have stored them? And why spend $450 on something that would be put away? It was a rare opportunity, but in the world of collecting, there will be others. Perhaps another time If theres one lesson I have learned, it is this: We cant have everything we want. Otherwise, nothing is of value. But the piece of Melba Ware, found at Family Thrift in Fort Myers? Its priceless.A few showsThe Naples Antique Show Allman Promotions returns to Southwest Florida with this high-end show, set for Jan. 27-28, The Royal Palm Ballroom, The Naples Hilton, 5111 Tamiami Trail N., Naples.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYWhat do you value? The Price poses the questionThe years have a way of helping us re-evaluate the true value of things not just objects, but relationships, how weve spent our lives, what weve sacrificed over the decades. What is the ultimate value of ones life choices and decisions? Were they worth it? In Arthur Millers The Price at Gulfshore Playhouse, Victor Franz (Jeffrey Binder) returns to his childhood home to have its contents appraised and sold. The building is about to be demolished. His father died 16 years ago, and Vic and his older brother, Walter (David Whalen), are estranged. For Vic, walking through the house he lived in with his father brings back memories in waves. You can see each new recollection wash across his face as he spies various objects: a Victrola, an old trunk, a case of dusty vinyl records, a harp, a sword and fencing mask. For us, the audience, walking into the theater is also like stepping back into time. The air itself is hazy. Dust motes dance in streams of light. The set (by Kristen Martino) is like a sepia photo come to life. Hatboxes and old telephones, books and lamps and picture frames sit in clusters. A heavy armoire and dresser loom in the background. Light filters through a slanted wall of windowpanes. Vics wife, Esther (Marilee Talkington), is pushing Vic to retire from the police force, to start a new life. Hes put in his time. Surely there must be some kind of reward for all this sacrifice, she feels. But Vic is stuck in middle-age malaise, unable to move forward. He doesnt like being on the force, but doesnt want to quit and start a new career. Ms. Talkingtons role is somewhat thankless; shes not on stage very often and the playwright hasnt given her much to do. She seems to represent possibility for Vic, the possibility of a better life and future, but he refuses her encouragement. Gregory Solomon (Stuart Zagnit) shows up to appraise the furniture. An elderly man with his own troubles, he sees the appraisal as an opportunity to bargain for the best deal. Is he going to be fair to Vic, or will he take advantage of him? Its ironic: Vic is so worried about being taken by this appraiser, yet doesnt realize how hes shortchanged himself all through his life. Mr. Zagnits character provides some humor and a much-needed spark to this play, which sometimes lumbers along. At times, he threatens to run away with the show. Then Walter shows up: smooth, polished, well off. Years ago, he was the brother who went to college, while Vic sacrificed his educational opportunities to take care of their father, who was destroyed by the Depression and the loss of his wife. Vic became a policeman, though he wanted to study the sciences like Walter, who became a surgeon. Mr. Binder and Mr. Whalen played brothers in an earlier Gulfshore Playhouse production of Ibsens An Enemy of the People. In The Price, theyre once again brothers at odds with each other. Both superb actors, they play off of each other well. The dynamics of their relationship shift and then shift again, as they reveal secrets and confront one another. The play focuses on the brothers and the appraiser, and all three actors make the most of their roles. The Price is one of Mr. Millers lesser known plays, not as popular nor staged as often as Death of a Salesman, The Crucible or All My Sons. Its also highly autobiographical. It is not one of the playwrights stronger works, though it does provide food for thought. While Act II is full of revelations, it drags a bit as the brothers talk and bicker incessantly. Some of the actors New York accents are a little uneven. (I wish vocal coach John Patrick had caught and corrected some of the Midwestern pronunciations.) And a mirror on the wall stage left is not well placed; it reflects the light so strongly it makes Mr. Binders face difficult to see at times when hes standing in front of it, because hes so overpoweringly back-lit. These are small, unfortunate distractions from an otherwise strong production, directed by Kristen Coury. The Price raises some interesting questions: Is it right to place ones dreams above family, or should family always come first? Can self-sacrifice ever go too far? Are there limits to how much we should help out family members financially? How do our past choices and decisions make us who we are today? Is life just one big cosmic joke or a dream? Ultimately, the play seems to suggest, life demands sacrifices of one kind or another, and its up to each one of us to determine the price we want to pay.

PUZZLES LETTER AGENDA HOROSCOPESAQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a step-by-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) T hat cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more-serious problems. Coworkers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to August 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind.

Dozens of card combinations lend themselves well to this type of trick development, and declarer should always be on the lookout for it. For example, examine the club holding in this deal. If declarer plays the suit first, regardless of whether he leads initially from dummy or his hand, he loses three club tricks against normal defense. Thus, if South plays a low club to dummys jack, East wins with the king and returns the ten to garner three tricks for his side. If South leads the queen instead, West takes his ace and returns a club to produce the same result. The defenders likewise score three club tricks if declarer initiates the suit by playing from dummy first, whether he leads the jack or a low club to the queen. But if the defenders initiate the suit, they can score only their A-K, and declarer winds up with a club trick. It does not matter whether East or West leads the suit first; declarer simply plays low from the next hand to achieve his goal. Declarer can put this knowledge to good use on the present hand. South wins the opening heart lead with the king and sees that he has four potential losers a diamond and three clubs. He then cashes the K-Q of trumps and Q-A of hearts. Declarer next leads a diamond to the ace, deliberately rejecting the finesse, and exits with the queen. He does not care which defender actually wins the trick, since that player has to return a club or yield a ruff-and-discard, and either way the contract comes home. Note that if South attempts the diamond finesse at trick six and it loses, a diamond return will force him to initiate the club suit himself, and he will go down one.

Director Steven Spielbergs latest is a good drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment, but its also unlikely to be the strong Oscar contender many are expecting. Rated PG-13.Downsizing (Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz) With the promise of a better life, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) agree to shrink themselves and live out their days in a micro-community. It doesnt go as planned, of course, and worse, the film goes in unexpected directions that dont work. A definite disappointment from writer/director Alexander Payne. Rated R.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.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.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.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.

YesMilitary heroism has been chronicled in movies so many times that its easy to take for granted. Leaving friends and loved ones behind to protect ones country is a life-changing choice, and soldiers today take the responsibility voluntarily. Its admirable and creates a sense of gratitude from a countrys citizens thats beyond comparison. This reminder is especially relevant in Strong, which follows the first Army combat unit to enter Afghanistan after 9/11. Capt. Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth) was ready to retire and settle into a domestic life with his wife (Elsa Pataky, Hemsworths real-life wife) and daughter in September 2001. After 9/11 he immediately went to Lt. Colonel Bowers (comedian Rob Riggle, himself a former Marine and nicely playing the role straight) and asked to rejoin his unit. Hes allowed, and a short time later hes back with Hal Spencer (Michael Shannon), Sam Diller (Michael Pena), Ben Milo (T revante Rhodes) and his other squad mates (theres 12 of them total, hence the title) as they venture to the Middle East. The plan, as shared by Col. Mulholland (William Fichtner), is complicated. Theyre to fly into Uzbekistan, just north of Afghanistan, and meet up with Afghan warlord General Dostum (Navid Negahban), who hates the Taliban. The mission is to trek 40 miles through the mountainous, arid terrain to capture the Taliban stronghold city of Mazar-I-Sharif. The problem is there are other warlords who also want to possess Mazar-I-Sharif, and the Taliban isnt going down without a fight. Director Nicolai Fuglsig shoots the action scenes as raw, gritty and intense, but also repetitive. The danger heightens as the men draw closer to their targets, which renders a video game cycle to the story: The men enter into combat, survive and advance. Then repeat. Its one-note, and reminders of the importance of the mission do little to assuage the narrative monotony. This wouldve been more forgivable if the action were shot in creative ways, and/or the various scenarios were more diverse, but neither element does much to make the film more engaging. Ted Tally and Peter Craigs script is based on the book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton. One naturally hopes that both the book and movie do justice to the courage these 12 Americans and their Afghan compatriots displayed. We need to remember, however, that just because a movie does justice to a story doesnt mean it renders the events in a compelling way. Authenticity is important in a movie such as this, yes, but the creativity and manner in which the story is told are also essential, and in that regard Strong is a letdown. Still, though, it doesnt feel right to give Strong a negative review. So Im not going to. Theres just enough in the camaraderie amongst the men to make them likable and have us care about them every step of the way, and because of that, and because of the respect and appreciation theyve earned for doing what they do, a moderate recommendation is earned. t t b s o n f dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The lm was shot in New Mexico.Did you know?

BY CINDY ELAVSKY Q: I recently decided to watch the series Lost for the first time, but then Netflix removed it from its lineup, and Im not done. Is there anywhere else I can see it? Barry G., via emailA: Youre in luck: Netflixs loss is Hulus gain. Hulu took over exclusive streaming rights to air all six seasons thats 121 episodes of the supernatural drama, so youll still be able to finish the series. Good thing because you need to find out who The Others are, who Kate ends up with (Jack or Sawyer?) and if they ever get off that dang island. Youll go through some bumpy patches as a result of the writers strike back in 2008, but stick with the series through to the end. Some people hated the ending; I thought it was perfect, as did series star Michael Emerson, whom I spoke with about it a few years back. Q: A while back you mentioned a Sons of Anarchy spinoff, but I havent seen anything about that since. Is it still a go? Linda T. in GeorgiaA: The Sons spinoff, called Mayans MC, has been picked up by FX. Nick Grad, FXs president of original programming, said in a s tatement: K urt Sutter is a master storyteller, and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style. Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we cant wait for the world to see. The reason you hadnt heard much since the initial spinoff announcement back in December 2016 is because production hit a speed bump this past summer when it was revealed that new director and executive producer Norberto Barba was coming aboard to help revamp the pilot. Readers: HBO announced that well have a bit of a wait to see who will end up sitting on the Iron Throne. The network announced that the hit series Game of Thrones will finally wrap up its story with a six-episode eighth season sometime in 2019. While no exact date has been given, most of us are assuming it will be a late-spring/early-summer offering, as per previous seasons. As Im sure you know, season seven consisted of seven episodes, many of which were over an hour long, so Im thinking (and hoping) that season eight will follow suit and bring fans even more supersize episodes.

Perhaps one of Ms. Flanigans strongest traits is her ability to get noticed sometimes by accident. After retiring in 2006, she decided to jump fully into the art world and enter some of her work at a tent show for the first time. No one told her the tent was supposed to be white. I got a pink and gray tent, she said with a laugh. Who wouldve thought? Growing up she enjoyed painting and even professed an interest in going to art school, but her father said no. She went to secretarial school instead. I started going to art classes when I was 19, she said, adding, Ive probably paid tuition equivalent to whatever art school I wouldve gone to. Shes studied in Philadelphia and New Jersey, where she grew up, as well as in Giverny, France, and Florence, Italy. Wherever she goes, she enjoys the kindred spirits of her fellow artists. Theyre a little bit different, she said. When I started hanging out with other artists, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Though she cites the greats in Matisse and Van Gogh for her impressionist style, she also commends one of her personal mentors, the late Fort Myers artist Gale Bennett, as being a heavy influence on her work. I love the colors, the style I enjoy it because its not perfect; its not a perfect world, so why not? Her Tribute to Color exhibit shows an array of local inspirations for her work; Ms. Flanigan recently completed a collection of paintings of 25 different beach entrances in the Naples area. Ironically enough, Ms. Flanigan isnt a beach person, so her downtown Naples home isnt on the shoreline. Passersby, however, could guess that the little purple house with various sculptures and decorated mannequins was the home of an artist. She credits her career owning her fine jewelry business in Philadelphia as paramount in helping her become a successful artist. Theres a lot of artistic people who arent business people, so Im lucky, she said about having both an artistic side and a mind for business. Her grandfather was an entrepreneur, and two of her four sisters own businesses. Its something thats inside of you, I think, she said of the entrepreneurial spirit. A lot of it, to me, is common sense, she added about the business of being an artist. You have to meet people. You cant stand there and not engage people in your work. Ask people what they think, talk about their favorite piece. Though Ms. Flanigan doesnt regret her winding path to becoming an artist, she recommends that up-and-coming talents should prioritize educating themselves, whether that be in a classroom or through observation. Everything leads you to your goal. If you have your mind right and you really want to do art, just stick to it, she said, noting the many ups and downs that come with being an artist. One of the most telling two weeks of her career were a couple of shows she did, one costing $600 to exhibit, the other $65. During the first show, she sold $9 worth of work. And the second? $3,200. You just never know, she said. For young artists, every connection you make is a good connection. Constantly learn and talk to other artists. Most of them will share. I do.

Chef Fabrizio Aielli and his wife, Ingrid, opened their fourth and most hotly anticipated restaurant, Dorona, on Wednesday, Jan. 24, taking over the spot formerly occupied by Midtown Kitchen & Bar on the corner of Golden Gate Parkway and U.S. 41. The restaurant features an approachable menu of sandwiches, pasta, salads, seafood, all varieties of meats and more. A special menu of premium cuts of beef will be presented to guests at their tables. I have been thinking about this concept for a while, Chef Fabrizio said. A steakhouse serving exceptional meat with an Italian flair, and equally important, providing a variety of dishes that appeal to everyone. The vision is to create a casual atmosphere where all feel welcome. At the helm is Sea Salts corporate chef, Jason Godard. The local celebration of truffles continues with a five-course dinner at Ario at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach, where guests will be treated to a variety of dishes featuring delicate and extravagant fungus 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29. But diners shouldnt expect to be satisfied just with a full menu of dishes containing truffles (think like popcorn dressed with caviar, chocolate and truffles, or garganelli with black truffles). As an added treat, the restaurants chef de cuisine Gerald Sombright and acclaimed chef John Tesar will go head-to-head in a quickfire type challenge as a nod to their participation in Season 14 of Top Chef. Tickets are $210 for dinner, $285 plus wine pairings. For more information or to make reservations, call 642-2695 or visit www. marcomarriott.com. Dagnys Spirits hosts a free wine tasting from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, with 20-plus wines and a small selection of liquor as well. 15205 Collier Blvd. 384-9241 or www.dagnysspirits. com.

The winery is named Mollydooker, which is Australian slang for a left-handed person. The couples bold red wines garner outstanding ratings from critics all over the world. Their Carnival of Love Shiraz was Wine Spectator Number 2 Wine of the Year in 2016, and many of their other brands have received outstanding ratings. Recently, however, a break-up between the two has left Sarah Marquis as the sole owner of the winery, and the new face of the brand. Since the beginning, Sparky Marquis, personable and outgoing, had served as the brand ambassador. Now its Sarah Marquis turn, and its apparent shes up to the task. She is confident in her ability to guide the winery and the brands into the future. Were absolutely going to maintain our unique style, she said during a conversation at the New York Wine Experience in October. The wines intensity on the palate is very important. She and her winemaking team measure intensity by what they uniquely call fruit weight, a sensory term that embodies the velvety sensation of the wine on the palate, and its concentration. She plans to continue and build on the brands somewhat irreverent approach to the way their wines are named and handled. Names of the wines include Barefoot Boy, Velvet Glove, C arnival of Love and Enchanted Path. The couple also created the Mollydooker Shake as a way to make wine open up and breathe. Most of us would carefully uncork our bottles and pour the wine gently into a decanter, being careful not to agitate it or bruise the delicate liquid. Not these people. At a lunch a few years ago, Sparky Marquis opened a bottle of Carnival of L ove, poured about three ounces into a glass, replaced the cap and gave the bottle a vigorous and punishing shake. He poured another glass, and we tasted the unshaken wine next to the one that had been mistreated. Night and day. The shaken wine was much more open, fruity and accessible. Sarah Marquis intends to carry on that tradition. In June, Mollydooker at Sea, a seven-night Caribbean cruise, will include intimate tastings, blending classes and wine lunches and dinners. For information on the cruise, email alink@cruiseshipcenters.com. While some Mollydooker wines, such as the highly-rated Velvet Glove, run into the $150 range, the big, bold Carnival of Love and Enchanted Path Shirazes can be found for around $60, and are worth every nickel. Fortunately, the winery produces several quite pleasing wines for daily enjoyment, such as Two Left Feet red blend, The Maitre D Merlot and The Boxer Shiraz. All are available for well under $25 each. Meanwhile, enjoy our latest discoveries. Vietti Roero Arneis 2016 ($20) Arneis is a seldom seen white wine that wed like to get more of. All but forgotten until late in the 20th century, the quality and reputation have both come a long way in recent years. The word arneis, many believe, is a variation of anise, because this grape often has hints of licorice. We didnt detect that dimension in this sample from Italys Roero region, but enjoyed the citrus and yellow fruit flavors, along with peach, guava and mango. Theres zippy acidity that would pair well with seafood and shellfish. WW 86. Amici Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 ($25) This 100 percent Chardonnay is a great wine to enjoy on its own because of the pronounced oak and citrus aromas and flavors. Theres tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, mango, and even coconut. Some of the panel members were reminded of pia colada. Wellbalanced and lots of fun. WW 91. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: What can I do about side effects, like headaches, I feel from the sulfites and histamines in wine? Is there such a thing as wine that doesnt contain those ingredients? Is there any way to remove them from wine? Gina L., Fort LauderdaleA: Unfortunately for some, histamines occur in wine as a natural by-product of fermentation. Not many people react negatively to them, but some do. And, while only about 1 percent of the population is actually allergic to sulfites, some people have a troublesome reaction. I have just found out about a device that actually removes sulfites and histamines from wine, and am in the process of researching it and verifying that it actually works. If it does, I will report on it in this column. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

Now, its true that many of the SBs from that part of the world are a bit predictable and similar in their flavor profile, but theres still plenty of variety in the various producers and regions. Lets go back a bit. Ive written in the past that people who bec ome passionate about wine (maybe not to the point where they become wine writers and educators, but) have had an epiphany somewhere along the way. Someone pours you a glass of something, you taste it, and say, Holy moley, I never knew anything could taste like that. You are transformed and pretty much lost forever. For my wife Debi and I, it was a glass of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, back in 1995. Life changing, and Im serious about that. However, when I looked back over my previous columns, I was shocked shocked, to discover that I had never written about this particular varietal. Lets correct that omission right now. First, the Sauvignon Blanc grape is pretty much native to the Loire Valley in France, and grown at the eastern end of the river, primarily around the villages of Pouilly and Sancerre. Its made in many styles. Visit one winery, and all the wine is resting in oak barrels. Go to the winery across the street, and theres not a stick of wood anywhere; everything is stainless steel. Typically, characteristics of this refreshing white wine include grapefruit, pineapple, hay, maybe some lychee and gooseberry, and often a whiff of what we politely call pipi du chat. As strange as that may sound, the slight aroma of what Scruffy does in the litterbox is very much part of the aroma profile of many Sauvignon Blancs. To be a bit less coarse about it, most critics refer to that particular aroma as boxwood. Strangely enough, it works.Nevertheless, this is a wine that pairs incredibly well with a wide range of dishes, especially if they involve seafood. I have formulated what I call the lemon law. If you can put lemon on it, you can drink Sauvignon Blanc with it. This is especially true of shellfish, and even more so during the current stone crab season. If you want a treat, just buy a few pounds of claws and wash them down with a bottle of New Zealands finest. The flavors of the New Zealand wines are very much up front and, well, pretty obvious. The notes of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus mentioned above are unmistakable, and hit you as soon as you put your nose in the glass. Not necessarily a bad thing. My favorite New Zealand producers are Cloudy Bay (of course), Villa Maria, Nobilo, Oyster Bay and Kim Crawford. The Cloudy Bay runs around $35 a bottle, but the other brands are more economical. Meanwhile, enjoy some of our latest selections. Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2016 ($22) While this Sauvignon Blanc is a product of Napa Valley, it follows the characteristic (and delicious) flavor profile of those that hail from New Zealand. There is a pronounced aroma of boxwood on the nose. Peach schnapps, tutti-frutti and pineapple follow along on the palate. As with many wines made from this varietal, enjoy it with seafood and shellfish. WW 90. Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 ($72) A blockbuster thats going to need a few years to really show its stuff. Its deep inky purple, promising an extracted, fullbodied style. Raspberry aromas on the nose, along with other mixed red and black fruits. The palate comes through with black plum, graphite, red and black cherry, and clove. This wine is a baby, and will benefit greatly from a few more years in the bottle or several hours in a decanter. WW 93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Where does the word sommelier come from? Derrick L., Port CharlotteA: The word, which is used to describe someone who is knowledgeable about wine and often controls the wine collection in a restaurant, comes from saumalier, a Provenal word that originally meant a pack-animal driver, but came to signify a butler, or someone in charge of provisions.

All Drinks! Beer Wine Mixed Frozen Whole Steamed Maine Lobster! VINOThe Chianti connectionTheres one winegrowing area thats probably among everybodys favorite: Chianti. We all love pizza, pasta, red sauces and the other cuisines that are so characteristic of the area, but theres lots more to explore, and so many Tuscan wines to appreciate. Plus, the area has changed quite a bit in the last few years in the way it makes and classifies its wine, so a bit of catching up is certainly in order. The region of Tuscany is mostly the area west and southwest of Florence, to the coast. It includes the walled city of Lucca (well worth a visit) and Pisa, as well as the famous winemaking towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Maremma and Bolgheri. Thats the easy part. How the wines are classified is a bit more fun to figure out. The Chianti area is divided into several sub-regions. The most famous is Chianti Classico, which are the bottles with the black rooster logo that youll see on the neckband. But other regions, such as Rufina, Colli Senesi (Siena Hills) and Colli Fiorentini (Florentine Hills) produce wines that are also well worth a try. The major grape used in the traditional (and legally specified) Chianti blend or recipe is Sangiovese, which must comprise at least 75 percent of the contents. Other reds, such as Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Syrah can also be used in smaller quantities. Back in the day, we used to drink Chianti out of a rounded bottle that came in a straw basket. In Italian this type of bottle is called a fiasco, and theres a reason for that. We dont drink it any more (and neither should you), having discovered so many other delightful alternatives. Most wines from the various Chianti regions are legally classified loosely according to quality. Youll see the letters DOC or DOCG on the label or neck band. These classifications are decreed and bestowed by the governing authorities. In the past few years, they initiated another classification called Gran Selezione, which is given only to Classico wines that have been aged for a minimum of 2 years. In Italy, as well as other places like France and Spain, wine is not considered a beverage. Its food, and part of a meal like everything else on the table. So Tuscan wines, with their high acidity and firm tannins, pair perfectly with tomato dishes, which are also acidic and contain a considerable amount of salt. This salty component, incidentally, helps to modify and calm down the tannins of the wines. The tasting panel and I were delighted to recently evaluate a wide range of Tuscan wines, and some of our favorites are listed here. There are more, and well come back to them another time. Sample widely. Selvapiana Chianti Rufino 2014 ($17) Translucent reddish-tawny in the glass, this wine offers notes of leaves, tobacco and red currant. The currant notes come through boldly on the palate, with a great balance of acidity and tannin. While most Chianti is best as an accompaniment to food, this one can be enjoyed on its own. WW 88-89. Luce della Vite Lucente Toscana 2014 ($18) Gorgeous deep ruby color in the glass with aromas of cherry, blackberry and black plum. The concentrated flavors of black cherry, leather and pepper are nicely balanced with firm tannins. A great choice alone or with food. Aged mostly in new French oak, this is a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese. WW 92. Le Volte DellOrnellaia Toscana 2015 ($28) Theres an enormous burst of up-front aromas, including smoke and black fruit. The palate is full-bodied, round and balanced, offering strong accents of blueberry. We loved it. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and about 13 percent Sangiovese. WW 92-93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Why do sulfites in wine sometimes give people headaches? Brett H., Fort LauderdaleA: They dont. Generally, people who experience headaches from red wine are sensitive to the histamines that occur as a natural by-product of fermentation. Some asthmatics do experience a sensitivity to sulfites, but this is relatively rare. c t a g b d jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com a perfect pairingPick up a copy of Florida Weekly at these Total Wine & More locations FORT MYERS Total Wine & More Market Square Shopping Center 13711 S.

We can enhance the dessert course immeasurably with a glass of something on the sweeter side. There are several ways to produce sweet wines. First, leave the grapes on the vine for the longest possible time, which makes them super-ripe and increases sugar content. These are known as late harvest wines. Some grapes are left out until after the temperature drops below freezing to make ice wine. Freezing also removes water and concentrates sugars. Grapes that are dried after harvesting make a wide variety of wines. In Italy, theyre called passito. And the famous Italian sweet wine known as Vin Santo is also made from grapes that are dried to become almost like raisins. Of course, you can make a sweet wine by just adding more sugar. The sweeter Champagnes are made like that, as are several varieties of Riesling and the famous Tokays from Hungary. Lets start with the wines made in a more natural way, such as Moscato. The white Muscat (or Moscatel) grape grows just about everywhere in the world, and you can find the wines in still, sparkling and dessert versions. One very characteristic quality of Moscato is a distinctive floral aroma, which some describe as musk. However, many winemaking techniques, such as oak aging, minimize this scent and offer a much sweeter smell of white flowers and honey. However, some of the most prized wines in the world are called rot wines and many come from the Sauternes region of Bordeaux in France. A fungus known as noble rot attacks the grapes (primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon) when weather conditions are just right. This reduces juice content, concentrates the sugars and produces other chemical changes that result in a very characteristic and desirable aroma and flavor profile. This wonderful disease does not affect the bunches evenly, so the grapes are often harvested by very dedicated people who go through the vineyard dozens of times picking them one by one. As you might expect, this results in a very expensive wine, and most of them are available in half bottles. Sweet wines offer us some delightful food pairing opportunities. One classic pairing is foie gras with a glass of the Sauternes mentioned above. Port with Stilton cheese is another. Many sweet white wines go very well with nut-based desserts, as well as custards like crme brle and fruit dishes like tarte Tatin, apple cobbler and others. The good news is that not all dessert wines are that expensive. Some excellent wines from Sauternes, the neighboring region of Barsac, and Hungarian Tokays are quite enjoyable in the $40 range. So give them a try and for now, please enjoy our latest selections. Salentin Numina Gran Corte Spirit Vineyard Val de Uco 2013 ($40) Killer stuff. Inky black in the glass, promising (and delivering) huge aromas of sweet fruit, earth and cassis, almost like a Bordeaux. This wine spent 16 months in French oak, so you can expect round tannins, vanilla, raspberry, blueberry and spice. WW 92.Martini & Rossi Sparkling Ros NV ($12) This wine comes in a four-pack of 187 ml. bottles. Its light salmon color in the glass with a perfumed nose of strawberry candy. Fun stuff in a handy package for tailgate parties and similar occasions. WW 89. Amici Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 ($50) The color of this wine is spectacular, and so is the nose of smoke, coffee, cedar and ripe berries. There are deep blackberry flavors along with rich red plum, and a very full mouthfeel. Its a youngster, and could use a few years in the cellar (or under the bed) or a few hours of decanting. Blend of 80 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with the traditional Bordeaux combination of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Lovely. WW 94. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Are wines from Australia classified by region like the wines from France or Italy? Evan L., TampaA: No. There are no official rules for naming wine regions in Australia. In fact, winemakers often blend grapes that are grown in very wide areas, sometimes hundreds of miles away. Jerry Greenfield is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

Brian is not only focused on furthering his own education in both food and wine, he instills this philosophy into his team, said club General Manager Nicholas von Hofen. His creativity, attention to every detail and brilliant food pairings continue to set Colliers Reserve apart. This well-deserved award solidifies his talents in the culinary profession and his contributions to the American Culinary Federations Caxambas Chapter of Southwest Florida. Heres what Chef Lord had to say to Florida Weekly: Q: What is your culinary background? A: I have been very fortunate to work at some of the nicest clubs in the country. I began my career as a teenager, working in high volume restaurants and progressed into my first professional position within the Atlanta Athletic Club. I worked in numerous clubs all over the country after that and most recently was executive chef at Reynolds Lake Oconee in Greensboro, Ga. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: I have always loved the energy and passion it takes to be successful. Later into my career I learned to love developing and growing young culinary talent. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: The opportunity to lead the Colliers Reserve culinary team and proximity to the water. My family and I love the area. Q: Youve had a variety of prestigious positions and even had the opportunity to cook for President George W. Bush. Could you elaborate on how that opportunity came about and what did you serve him? A: I was working at Reynolds Lake Oconee and the owner was very close with President Bush. It was an honor to be able to put on a variety of functions for both the President and First Lady. We had his favorite strawberry ice cream flown in from Texas. Q: Since you arrived at Colliers Reserve six years ago, you have made a number of changes to its culinary program, including making the club an extension of members own kitchens. How have you done that, and what have you learned about the members in the process? A: I feel it was as simple as listening to the membership, taking that feedback and applying to my style of cuisine. We focus on what Florida is most known for: seafood. We buy directly from fishing boats from both coasts, and these relationships directly affect the quality that is put on the plate. Q: You were just named the 2017 Chef of the Year by your colleagues in our local chapter of the American Culinary Federation. They must be a difficult group to impress. How do you think you did it? A: It was a great honor to be chosen by my peers as the Chef of the Year for our chapter of the American Culinary Federation, of which I am currently the vice president. I love being part of this organization that focuses on the development of young culinarians and giving back to the community. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: Our Caramelized Gulf Black Grouper and our Blue Crab & Scallop Ravioli. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: Eric Karell, my first chef at the Atlanta Athletic Club; my mother, who always made scratch food; and all the chefs who pioneered modern American cuisine. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: I love the harmony between food and wine. The time I spent in California, my experience with the Court of Master Sommeliers, and executing food and wine pairings are highlights of my experiences. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: Continuing education first, but dining out in major markets to experience the cuisine, service and ambiance of other restaurants is my favorite thing to do.
