A23 Long before 2018 Olympians drew attention to the Korean dogmeat industry, a Southwest Florida organization was bringing purebred golden retrievers here from that country to raise awareness about the plight of dogs in other nations. Since 2015, Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida has imported 44 goldens from South Korea, the result of a chance social media contact that spanned from California to Fort Myers. Prior to January 2015, I was unaware of the local South Korean animal rescue efforts, said Fort Myers resident Mark Dahlberg, GRRSWFs international rescue coordinator. I did not understand the depth of the animal cruelty crisis or the dedication of those working to eradicate it. That chance encounter online sparked the arrival of Sky, the first golden from Korea, and a rescue mission that has forged alliances across the world.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYCollateral damageProtests, marches and strikes. Sit-ins, sit-downs, challenges and outcries. What to make of them? Americans have always spoken from outside the voting booth when they thought issues or injustices required it. Peaceful protest itself tends to be a cherished American ideal, an ennobling act aimed at making American life better. By definition, therefore, protest is considered patriotic. But protests themselves are always reviled by somebody. Protestors are whiners, complainers and attention-seekers, some people conclude or even traitors. Protesting is hard, begrudging work, usually a swim against a heavy tide toward a seemingly distant horizon, a shining shore where life is not only sustainable, but more just: Equal rights for all. The right of women to vote. Better pay. Safer working conditions. Products that dont poison children or adults. Climate change and environmental protection. An end to a war. Protesting is sometimes simply a demonstration of solidarity and power, a march of sorts that might be better termed a parade. On Aug. 8, 1925, for example, in a nation of 106 million people that included roughly 3 million members of the Ku Klux Klan from both north and south, more than 50,000 costumed Klansmen marched down Pennsylv ania Avenue in Washington, D.C., in what historians say was a mostly peaceful event. Only 12 years earlier, on March 3, 1913, 5,000 women had marched down Pennsylv ania Avenue to demand the right to vote 5,000 civil rights marchers, but 500,000 curious spectators staring at the first protest in U.S. history to demonstrate for change in Washington. All that may look historically cute from the distance of a century removed. But rarely were protests cute, or comfortable or about an issue not deeply important to the context and direction of American life. Protestors effected change because they made visible the feelings of many other Americans, people who hadnt done anything about it personally, but who voted. Eventually. Too often, change isnt fast enough. People get mistreated, hurt or killed waiting years or decades for changes to arrive. The same is true this week, on Saturday, when parents and teenagers horrified at repeated mass murders by gunmen employing firepower equivalent to a combat infantrymans will arrive in Washington or in cities such as Miami, West Palm, Stuart, Naples, Fort Myers and Sarasota to join The March For Our Lives. The event comes less than six weeks after a gunman with an assault rifle killed and wounded dozens of teenagers and some faculty on Valentines Day. Surviving students and parents from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland have organized this march to protest the failure of elected leaders to control such weapons by removing them from civilian society and to find other effective ways to prevent mass shootings. In the wake of the latest massacre, Florida legislators have behaved like Chicken Little. Amidst a great deal of clucking alarm in February, and this month, delivered with (not lip service) beak-service sympathy for traumatized boys, girls, moms, dads and teachers, they managed to create new legislation. Instead of solving any problems, it actually puts more guns into schools into the hands of people who teach algebra or English or biology for a living. And all over Florida and elsewhere people like 17-year-old Fort Myers High School senior Sarah Brown, her sisters and her parents, arent having it. So Ms. Brown has become a protestor. Although shes in Washington this week with family members, she started after Valentines Day alone, sitting in a city park park to inscribe on the bricks the names of the dead. Earlier in the month she did it outside her high school on a day of no classes. And just last week she organized a student walk-out for 17 minutes of silence (99 people, including her sister, joined her) before she arrived downtown during St. Patricks Day festivities with six friends to chalk the names of the dead again. Which dead and how many? Their names stretch out in long columns or circles of chalk, softly hued pastels that together form a sobering, heart-rending art of the lost. Ms. Brown calls it Collateral Damage, 679 innocent Americans killed in mass shootings beginning at Colorados Columbine High School almost 20 years ago, and concluding at Marjory Stoneman Douglas last month all roughly within the lifetimes of the first graduating class of Gen Z, Ms. Browns generation, in May. Sarah Brown describes her protest this way in social media (Facebook and Instagram username, @collateraldamageart): Collateral Damage (is) the politically correct term for the premeditated killing of innocent people. These are the names of people who have become collateral damage in an ongoing conflict in which nothing done has been significant enough to prevent others from suffering the same fate. This cannot continue. This is no longer a matter of personal belief. Its nonpartisan. This is not about taking away your guns. This is about the failure of the United States government to create and/or enforce any regulation that would prevent easy acquisition of an assault rifle by anyone who so desires. This is about protecting our friends, our families, and our fellow citizens from becoming victims of a tragedy that could have been prevented simply through stricter gun control. This is about my classmates who are afraid to come to school because they could be next, about the parents who worry for the safety of their children more and more each time something like this happens, and for those who have been calling for change and have gone unheard Collateral Damage is a call to arms. Cameron Kasky and the other students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have started something big, and I am determined to be part of it. This is a movement born of tragedy. We will not be silenced. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Mark down that date. It was a day for news of huge significance: Tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum and a startling announcement about negotiations between President Donald Trump and North Koreas Kim Jong Un. Ho-hum. Wed much rather discuss sex. The Washington swamp is teeming with that kind of wildlife. Lets face it many, if not most, of the leaders in a position to determine how we live and love and all that important stuff are really just a bunch of horndogs. They jeopardize their elevated status for risky sexual adventures at the drop of a trouser. There are exceptions. Barack Obamas presidency was publicly free of the personal escapades that have defined so many politicians lives. Presidents Bill Clinton and now Trump are a whole other story. Where would we be without the almost-daily dalliance report on someone in power? And those are just the ones who get caught. Bill Clintons bimbo eruptions were the stuff of legend. Now we have Donald Trump. Even the most august media have at least one Stormy Daniels story a day, to say nothing about the titillating accounts of so many (other than his wives) who claim to have yielded to his charms (namely money) or insist that they were assaulted by him. Trump denies it, all of it, which sets him apart from so many others who had no choice but to admit their inappropriate behavior or outright adultery. I always found that word comical, because there is nothing adult about adultery. But the mind wanders. This is not to be judgmental. The best lead story is a lewd story. The prudish among us can disappr ove, and the rest of us can laugh lustily. Lets be honest: Who is currently Americas Sweetheart? Stormy Daniels, thats who. By day, she was a porn star. By night, she now claims, she was getting it on more than a decade ago with Donald Trump. But this plot has more twists and turns than they had trysts and turns. Oh, did I forget to say allegedly? Please forgive the oversight. His attorney and fixer Michael Cohen acknowledges that he bought her silence when Trump was running for president. Cohen says he paid Daniels $130,000. He claims that he decided she needed the money, which he provided out of the goodness of his heart. How many lawyers do you know with a good heart? Cohen doesnt seem to be one of them. I will admit that I love this smutty stuff. We all prefer coverage of sex, drugs and rock n roll to stories where we have to think. Issues like tax reform tax the brain too much. Stormy Daniels taxes ... well, you know. The problem is that the country goes into the toilet while we ignore all those difficult issues that allow the rich to get richer by bamboozling the American public. Climate? Health care? Too complicated. A president and a stripper getting it on? Now youre talking! Its an integral part of the issue that has exploded into the Me Too movement. Even that story, with its perverted behavior, is too multifaceted to figure out. Unless we can find a simple-minded sex angle, trade-war stories and even efforts to end nuclear war are hardcore boring. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Why China trade has been a bustTheres already a trade war, and its being waged by Beijing. Chinas ascension to the World Trade Organization nearly 20 years ago has failed in its strategic objectives. It hasnt created a liberalizing regime or a freemarket economy in China; in fact, it hasnt even created a China ready and willing to abide by the norms of free trade. The regime of Xi Jinping hasnt been pushed toward democratic reforms by a rising middle class. China still champions state-led, rather than market-led, capitalism. And it takes advantage of the WTO, using nontariff barriers and industrial policy, to push mercantilist policies. President Donald Trumps prospective tariffs on steel and aluminum have put renewed focus on China trade, although the tariffs are a comically inept misfire if their true target is China. The rubric for the levies could be: How to lose a trade war with China in one easy step. The tariffs dont really affect China, from which we import only about 3 percent of our steel. Meanwhile, they send the message that the U.S. government is lurching toward protectionism, and alienate our allies. A better approach begins with acknowledging that China is a unique problem. For all of Trumps complaints, Mexico isnt pursuing a well-honed strategic agenda of exploiting the global trade system while it undertakes an aggressive neoimperialist foreign policy. Only China is doing that. China isnt the first developing country to adopt a policy of maximizing exports. What makes it different is its sheer ambition and its size, which gives it leverage over foreign companies and considerable international influence. Whats the harm to the U.S.? There is no doubt that Chinas practices have harmed U.S. manufacturing. Yes, technology accounts for a large share of job losses. Yes, lower-end manufacturing would have left our shores regardless. But Beijing works to block higher-value-added exports from the U.S. and is pursuing a comprehensive strategy to dominate in advanced industries. By no means should we emulate China. We should continue to pursue free trade as a policy, not as a theology that prevents us from acknowledging that there is such a thing as unfair trade. The ITIF report urges using the global free-trade regime against China. That means bringing more actions against China in the WTO and working to update the rules to capture Chinese cheating. It means joining, and influencing, a multilateral agreement like the Trans-Pacific Partnership. It means forging bilateral agreements with up-todate standards that reinforce principles that China undermines. We obviously cant do this alone. Wed have to lead an alliance of international partners to pressure China on specific practices, with tailored consequences if we get nowhere. Such a broad-based effort to crack Chinas mercantilism wouldnt be protectionist, but the opposite. There is obviously no chance of doing this, though, if we are engaged in an absurd cycle of tit-for-tat tariffs with the likes of the EU. Trump can have emotionally satisfying tariffs to scratch his protectionist itch, or he can have a strategy to muster an alliance of truly free-trade partners to pressure China. He cant have both and you can be sure China knows which option it prefers. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENSpecial to Florida Weekly

The officially sanctioned March for Our Lives Naples takes place Saturday morning, March 24, in Cambier Park. A sign-making event is planned from 3-8 p.m. Friday, March 23, at Collier County Democratic Party headquarters, 600 Goodlette-Frank Road. Participants should gather at 8:30 a.m. Saturday for the march that sets out at 9 a.m. The rally starts at 9:45 a.m. and will include remarks by Naples Mayor Bill Barnett; the Hon. Mike Barnes, former president and CEO of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence; retired Marjory Stoneman Douglas Principal Mike Kinghorn; Sara McFadden, candidate for Florida state representative; local teacher Corrie Vega; and students from Gulfcoast, Barron Collier and Palmetto Ridge high schools. All will give voice to the issue of gun violence in schools and the need for prompt legislative action.Seventeen students will each step forward to ring a bell in memory of those who died in Parkland; the bell will be rung an 18th time to honor all other students and teachers who have perished due to gun violence in incidents across the country.Workers and volunteers from the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office will be on hand to register new voters, and tables will be set up where rally attendees can write postcards to their elected officials stressing the importance of implementing sensible gun legislation. Tables for nonprofit organizations and candidates running for office are available free of charge.The organizersCollier Students for Change, a nonpartisan social activism group founded just after the Parkland massacre, is spearheading March for Our Lives Naples.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYon equal terms. Whether youre a freshman from south Florida or a faculty member from north Maine, if you want to talk to the man with the plan you can find him there with a cup of java, the fourth permanent president of Florida Gulf Coast University, now nine months into the job. As college presidents go, sitting with on-campus passersby is rarely heard of, roughly similar to a division commander of regiments, battalions and rifle companies sitting with privates or platoon leaders; it almost never happens. Almost never, but not never, because this is Mike Martin. Dr. Mike Martin. He will prove as tender or as tough as he has to be to move his university into the future with a single great conviction, say those who know him: Public universities, he insists, need to be a ladder, not a filter. Harvard University, for example, the nations oldest private university, which had an endowment of $9.5 billion the day FGCU opened with $15 million in endowment money 21 years ago, is a filter. But FGCU, now with an endowment of about $85 million, is the ladder. Everything I do is about those students and for them, about helping them climb up, he says. Of all the places Ive been, in this place as much as any, they dont see education as an entitlement. He gets that, he says, having been such a student once himself, the smalltown scion of parents who never even got close to a university. As a boy, Mike Martin thought hed work in the mines like his grandfather, or as a mechanic and welder, like his father. But something happened: higher education in public universities, he says Land Grant institutions created by Abraham Lincoln such as the University of Minnesota, where he earned his Ph.D. in applied economics. He reveres them. Yes, Dr. Martin can put out fires like the howling controversy when a sociology professor introduced a class last fall investigating the history of racism by whites. Its a legitimate academic inquiry by a legitimate scholar and teacher, Dr. Martin announced then and repeats now to critics, with exactly zero equivocation. Yes, he can boost the universitys graduation rates by decreasing some bureaucracy, increasing advisors, adjuncts and other teachers, and even climbing right out of the education foxhole and attacking problems waiting at home for some students especially those who come from families where nobody knows what to do because nobody ever went to college. And yes, hes a superb fundraiser, say those who know him a highly prized talent among college presidents. So his goal of boosting FGCUs endowment from the current $85 million mark to $1 billion in 20 years or less is probably doable. He was always gracious, always kind, I dont think I saw him mad more than one time in the years he was here hes just a great spirit, says Bunnie Cannon, executive director of Development Support Services at the Tiger Athletic Foundation at Louisiana State University, where Dr. Martin was chancellor from 2008 to 2012. He could work a room without people knowing he was working the room better than anyone. He talks to most of our donors, still. If we called him and needed him to help with something, hed be there in a minute. And when he decides to do something he never gives up. Hes like a dog on a hunt. I consider him an honorary Cajun. Ms. Cannon grew up in Louisiana, attended LSU, then went to work there. Its not a compliment she passes out lightly or frequently, she says.Philosophy and innovationSo hes loyal and sophisticated. But he looks for all the world like a guy in a Minnesota diner who just spent the morning lake fishing. Got a couple of big walleyes, one imagines him saying, taking a slow sip of coffee. And then hed add this thundering philosophic notion, one he shared with a reporter last week: I believe every child born in this country should have every reasonable opportunity for self actualization, professionally and personally. Id start, if I had the chance, with universal pre-K. And education? Education is pre-K through death. Not only are job skills his goal at FGCU to educate students into successful jobs or careers but he aims to give them moderately priced, deeply thorough educations that make them happier, more aware and more productive as citizens of a common enterprise called the United States of America. Thats the logic that creates the basic requirements every student at FGCU must take, he says, and the rich opportunities for those simply aiming to know the world more deeply. A liberal education, a basic education in literature, the arts, the sciences thats fundamental for the human condition. We want people who will be leaders, thinkers and good neighbors. Benjamin Franklin started the University of Pennsylv ania and Thomas Jefferson started the University of Virginia not just for jobs, but for better citizens. And I have advised some board members who may have suggested we cut back on the liberal arts, to get up every morning and pray that nothing happens to the liberal arts. Ever a pragmatist, theres a practical reason, too, he points out: its called cross-subsidizing. A history professor draws $60,000 to teach lots of students so an engineering professor can draw $120,000 to teach 12. The liberal arts subsidizes those engineering opportunities. So, unless they want to increase the tuition, people should strongly support the liberal arts. All that isnt just pretty cotton-candy lingo from an administrator, says Rich Schweigert, former CFO of the Colorado State University system with about 50,000 students and one of the finest engineering programs in the U.S. Dr. Martin most recently served as president there, wowing everybody. That was after feted tours at Louisiana State University and New Mexico State University. Youll have to trust me on this: You were probably talking to one of the 20 greatest innovators in higher education, when you talked to Mike Martin, Mr. Schweigert said. The nice thing about him is, hes been a lot of places and fixed a lot of things. So its not something hes got to figure out, its something hes just got to do. And when he says a billion in endowment, its a great place to start. Do you know how much money is in Florida? Its a weird amount. He should have no trouble getting to a billion. He could probably get halfway there in four or five years, maybe a little more. He knows the right people, hes connected deep. For six years, it turns out, he was an administrator at the University of Florida, a time when he and wife, Jan, began to love the Sunshine State and he began to meet and get a sense of the right people.The man in fullYou wouldnt necessarily recognize that at the coffee shop in the morning, unless somebody told you. Mild-mannered, amicable, energetic and bald, Dr. Martin carries a Wisconsin state welders license in his billfold; he earned it simply to share a trade skill with his beloved late father, a diesel mechanic, he says. His father, who died only a couple of years ago in his 90s, spent his life with a high-school education, working. He may have been the most significant and nurturing figure in his sons young life, friends suggest, although his mother the daughter of Serbian immigrants to northern Minnesota with no college degree who became a small-town mayor was a force to be reckoned with. She died years ago at 78, Dr. Martin says. When his father once saw him treating a smaller friend roughly, he recalls, trying to describe his fathers character and some of his own, the old man quietly called him aside. Youre being an SOB, he told me. If youre going to be an SOB, you better be a big one. Because theres always a bigger SOB somewhere. And the time he flew the old man to LSU to a fundraiser with some of the schools most famous athlete alumni, his dad sat down and began chatting DYNAMICFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYNew FGCU President Mike Martin believes pre-K should be universal, and that Education is pre-K through death.Everything I do is about those students and for them, about helping them climb up ... Of all the places Ive been, in this place as much as any, they dont see education as an entitlement. Dr. Mike Martin FGCU presidentCANNON
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 NEWS A11with one of the greatest professional football players ever to grace the game, Jim Brown. The renowned Cleveland Browns running back and Hall of Famer later became a Hollywood actor. None of that really impressed my dad, Dr. Martin recalled. He was a nice guy, sure, he told me. But Mike, the Hagen-Dazs was free! Dr. Martin never goes anywhere, either, without a head full of history and economics. At the moment hes reading Doris Kearns Goodwins The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and the Golden Age of Journalism. He earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Minnesota before teaching the subject as a professor at Oregon State for 12 years. And then theres his encyclopedic knowledge of baseball and baseball trivia, always at his fingertips. He knows more about the Minnesota Twins than the Minnesota Twins, some say a fact only whimsically suggested by the Twins paraphernalia on the walls and desks of his office in Edwards Hall. One more thing Dr. Martin also carries: a five-year, $350,000-per-year contract offered by a board of trustees so grateful for his willingness to avoid retiring and step back up to the plate, at 70, that they offered him an additional $100,000 bonus each year if he meets their goals, plus a $700,000 bonus if he makes it to five full years in the presidents office. I showed my daughter the contract when she asked to see it, and she said, Oh, dad, that wont be a problem for them. Why not? I asked. Because youre 70, youll never make it to five years, she told me. Hes also transparent and funny, a man with nothing to lose stepping into the FGCU lineup like Harmon Killebrew, the late, great Minnesota Twins player and late-career pinch hitter, who powered his 11th and final grand-slam home run out of the park on May 28, 1972, a fact no doubt readily recalled by the president. Dr. Martin is a Killebrew of sorts himself, suggests FGCU Trustee Blake Gable, the CEO and president of Barron Collier Companies who grew up in Naples and holds an MBA from the university. He came in at a time when weve had these struggles in certain metrics, a lot of it having to do with explosive growth, and hes really doing well. We went from zero to 15,000 students in 20 years, a lot of them Pell grant recipients and first generation in college, and Im proud of that. And Im proud of the things Mike is doing with (his team) to help students who face challenges at home through no fault of their own, by the way and even help whole families. Its innovative, and its going to produce huge student successes and dividends.Knowing, serving and acquiringAt FGCU, Dr. Martin says, percent of our students work at least 10 hours a week and 60 percent work 20 or more. Nearly a third are Pell eligible those are the monies for low-income folks and another 10 percent are close. Which means, 40 percent of our students are under financial stress. We dont want any barriers to them, so well use summer school, well blend online courses, well try to have more flexible financial aid so kids can get over a hurdle. Theres a lot we can do to make it easier so people can pace out a good degree and settle their educations into complex lives. Jim Brock, a professor of British and American Literature, a respected poet and the head of the Ghostbird Theatre Company in Estero, has watched all seven university presidents at FGCU closely four appointed on permanent contracts and three named as interim leaders. Presidents work for two administrative layers above them, he explained: the 12-member FGCU board of trustees selected jointly by the governor and a university president; and the politically appointed state board of governors that oversees the entire 12-university system, along with some community colleges. Then theres the Florida governor and legislature, itself, probably more likely to provide money to education if they know and like the educator. Its a complicated job. I give him really high marks hes really transparent, Professor Brock says. Dr. Martin has worked at LSU where football is king, at CSU with one of the finest engineering programs in the country, and at several other institutions, so hes dealt with every conceivable problem, and he has nothing to lose by tiptoeing around at FGCU, Professor Brock surmises. The results are stellar. Hes visible on campus, not that I have to have him there doing coffee in the morning. But he is there, communicating with faculty and students about sometimes difficult things taking place. And hes made three or four notable changes already, reducing bureaucracy and helping manage enrollment, increasing advisors to help students negotiate their academic and financial lives, and adding new majors they need. He also went to Tallahassee and came back with a very good year, as Professor Brock puts it. He got $13 million in extra funding to make up for past years of underfunding curriculum, especially thats based on a per-student ratio and he was able to work with people like Rep. Ray Rodrigues (R-76), whos in a leadership position and has worked here at FGCU. But the faculty basically thought, Well never get that money. Were not a blip on the legislative chart. Not only that, but he secured money for a new academic building, so were looking at being able to lower our classroom size, deepen some of our programs that are high demand, and to continue to help our advisors do their work, Professor Brock said. Dr. Martin, a lover of good beer as many Minnesotans are, acknowledges he did do some pretty hard lobbying with Rep. Rodrigues. During Hurricane Irma, World of Beer couldnt keep their product cool, he explained. I like to go in there occasionally, and (for days) the beer was warm. So I said to Rep. Rodrigues, Look, could you add something to one of those legislative bills that requires World of Beer to maintain a good generator after hurricanes? Cold beer or not, the job can be rugged. Although he refuses to label it as just a job for some of us its a vocation, a calling, an act of love, he exp lains it comes with a lot of work. And hes not young, as his wife points out.Family and job We were all set to retire last summer, we worked for the last four years to get our finances together, we came to the end (of his career as they had planned it), and suddenly they offered him this job. And he said, I think I can do it, I think I can help, recalls Mrs. Martin, remembering when this adventure started. Theres a moment of slightly strained but agreeable chuckling from her; like the wives of career military personnel, shes moved all over the nation as her husband worked his way to the pinnacle of academic life, or one of them, and shes deeply proud of him, she says. Together, theyve seen it all, or at least most of what comprises public education in the U.S. So shes ready for one more tour. Jan met Mike when she was an undergraduate student and he had graduated from Minnesota State and taken a job as an adjuster 90 miles away, she says. A young man I had a crush on, his name was Jim Mahoney, called me one day. I thought, Oh good, Ill be going out with him. But he wanted to introduce me to this guy he knew. Mike. And once I saw Mike, there was no going back. They struggled along, and he went back to school and got his advanced degrees, falling in love with the lively energy and environment of academia, they both say. Now 46 years later and considered a star in the firmament of public university leadership, Dr. Martin is unwilling to give it up when he can still do some good. But it takes a toll. Hes working really long hours and days, Mrs. Martin acknowledges. Every evening theres an event, like five nights a week: a banquet or an awards ceremony or something. He comes home and answers 50 or 60 emails and he falls asleep in the chair. Our daughter, Amanda, thought we were going to move back to Minnesota and be near her family, so she doesnt like (his choice) as much. But shes coming around. The Martins also have a son, Sam, along with two grandchildren Amandas kids who adore their grandpa almost as much as he adores them, say people who know the family. And family has always been the anchoring sun in the solar system he travels. It started not just with his parents, or hers from a close-knit GermanAmerican family, but in Wisconsin and Oregon when the Martins were starting out themselves. They adopted their two children from Korean orphanages and typical of anything they do, apparently they spent an inordinate amount of time working at it. In the case of Sam, younger than Amanda, he was already approaching his fourth birthday in South Korea when he became part of the family, the Martins explain. And having slept on the floor of the orphanage throughout his early life, he was terrified not only of the new American setting, the completely foreign language and strangelooking people hed suddenly begun living with, but also terrified of the bed. The little boy simply couldnt force himself to sleep up on it; raised beds hadnt been part of his experience. So Dr. Mike Martin got down on the floor and spent the night with his son. For two years. So did Jan. Now more than four decades later, the Martins have just adopted their last child, he says: a kid named FGCU. Dr. Mikes getting down on the floor again, or at least sitting in the coffee shop with this bright new kid, every morning. So far, so good.

Online scheduling is now available at PhysiciansRegionalMedicalGroup.com Tourism report: Collier revenue, visitor numbers on the rise BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comFacts and figures continue to illustrate an important economic fact for Collier County: Tourism appears to have been unaffected by Hurricane Irma. In fact, data from January 2018 provided by the Collier County Convention & Visitors Bureau shows a 31 percent increase in tourist development tax revenues and a 7.9 increase in hotel occupancy year over year.Revenues in January totaled $3,766,753. We did get Collier County Commission approval to increase the tourist tax effective Sept. 1 from 4 percent to 5 percent, CVB Executive Director Jack Wert said, noting a great deal of the increase in revenue was due to this approval. A CVB press release noted that with factoring in the old collection rate, revenues still increased nearly 5 percent. That additional revenue is being used to increase the dollars earmarked for beach renourishment and inlet management programs, the release added. Mr. Wert said the additional 1 percent of tax is earmarked for the building of and future debt service on the amateur sports complex planned for construction in East Naples over the next three-plus years. Caveats aside, Mr. Wert said he was very pleased with the uptick in visitors and revenues despite the airline flight interruptions and extreme cold weather events that happened in the northeast in January. And Hurricane Irmas potential to affect consumer confidence. As soon as our beaches and downtown areas where most of our visitors gravitate were cleared of Irma storm debris, we began an intensive campaign to tell potential visitors that our Coast is Clear, Mr. Wert said. The CVB utilized a number of avenues to spread the word, including Facebook Live posts from beaches across the county and from the Naples Pier, Tin City, downtown Naples and other destination locales. (We wanted) to show viewers that we were open and ready for business, he said. And we feel that messaging convinced many visitors to return to our area. Another intriguing number was the amount of new visitors to Collier County in January; Mr. Wert said CVB calculations estimate that 40 percent of January visitors were here for the first time. Our contracted research firm surveys each month a sampling of visitors in hotels and attractions using face-to-face interviews and phone and internet surveys to determine how visitors were attracted to our area, the activities they do while here and whether or not they are here for the first time, he said of the data. Visitor spending and total economic impact from tourism increased 4.9 percent in January from a year ago, according to the CVB.

Sailing experience gives students a view beyond their hometown SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe 53-foot Sweet Liberty catamaran was the vehicle for an entirely new experience for 24 students in The Immokalee Foundation programs. On a recent Saturday, students boarded the boat and sailed on the Gulf of Mexico, thanks to Harry and Mary Ann Debes of Naples, longtime supporters of the nonprofit who made the journey possible. Only five of the two dozen students had seen the gulf before, so it was great fun to provide this experience, Mr. Debes, a retired chairman of the board of P2 Energy Solutions, said. Students boarded the 44-passenger vessel at Landings Park and journeyed to Keewaydin Island, a barrier island in the Rookery Bay Reserve accessible only by boat. There are no roads, cars or bridges on Keewayin, and the beach landscape is nothing like the town the students call home. After docking at the uninhabited island, students went shelling as part of an environmental scavenger hunt, bringing their findings back to the boat for identification by a marine biologist the Debeses hired for the day. As they learned about local ecosystems and the importance of conservation, some of the students took turns steering the boat under the watchful eye of the captain and announced their presence on the water by blowing on a conch shell. Mr. Debes grew up in Canada under similar circumstances as most Immokalee youth: as the child of immigrants who spoke limited English and struggled financially. Helping the foundation is very personal to me. I was one of those kids, he said. Education was my ticket to greater possibilities. As part of their commitment to the youth of Immokalee, the Debeses also sponsor 14 students in TIFs Take Stock in Children scholarship program. Students who qualify take a pledge to get good grades, stay out of trouble and meet with their mentors in exchange for a college scholarship. Im aware of the potential these students have, given the opportunities, but so many of them dont even know the possibilities exist, Mr. Debes said. Supporters like the Debeses help us open up a world of opportunities for Immokalee students, TIF Executive Director Steven Kissinger said. We are so grateful for their dedication to these kids. Experiences like this give students glimpses of the world outside of their hometown, the Debeses said, adding they hope their actions will inspire others to do similar things for TIF students. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Many communities throughout Southwest Florida have weekly farmers markets, he said. The same can be said about towns and cities in South Korea. The difference, however, is that dogs and dog meat are available in the overseas venues. The cruelty imparted on these helpless pups is beyond written description. Thankfully, with the increasing availability of social media and the ease of international travel, the next generations of South Koreans realize that this practice no longer has a place in 21st century society. Because the cost of flying a golden to the U.S. can run up to $1,200 double the typical $600 adoption fee charged by the rescue the organization is constantly seeking donations and sponsors for the Korean dogs. The Naples-based GRRSWF, whose primary focus is helping goldens from Naples to Ocala find new forever homes, was formed in 2009 and has rescued more than 800 goldens and golden mixes. GRRSWF has not denied any golden retriever or golden mix from Florida or Korea thanks to our sponsors and donors, said the rescues president, Alesia Griffith, of Estero. Our mission is the same for the dogs we rescue locally and our Korean dogs: finding exceptional homes for exceptional golden retrievers and golden mixes. Mrs. Griffith has a personal stake in the Korean dog mission. She and her husband Mike adopted a Korean golden named Bo on Dec. 31, 2015. When I lost my Maggie, who was my heart and soul, July 31, 2015, my life was not the same, she said. More than half my heart died with her. I couldnt think of getting another after her, my heart was so broken. But God had a different plan for me and that was Bo. From the very first time I laid eyes on him there was an instant connection and my heart skipped a beat. Bo brought back my happiness in life. He brought back laughter and l ove I didnt think I could give again. He is my boy and the bond we have is strong like my bond with Maggie. He was heaven sent with no question in my mind. Sue Weber and her husband Ed Weber of Estero are also Korean golden adopters who hope to see a cultural shift toward dogs. As the adopters of Saint and Grace, they are proud their dogs serve as ambassadors of the rescue and its international mission. I cant even stand to think about the Korean dog-meat industry, said Mrs. Weber. When I first heard about it, I was horrified. I had no idea that it still existed. These dogs are as sweet and innocent as children. If it were within my power to end the dog-meat industry, I would do everything physically possible to end it. There has to be a better solution, and, although Im so grateful for all that GRRSWF is doing, along with the International Humane Society, its only a drop in the bucket in comparison to the thousands of dogs that are brutally slaughtered because of this ancient way of thinking. Once rescuers locate goldens in need in Korea, they reach out to Mr. Dahlberg and get the dogs to safety. Communication is done through Instant Messaging, almost always between midnight and 3 a.m. EST due to the time difference. Many of the volunteers are located within an hour of Seoul, but some live hours or hundreds of miles away. One rescue Mr. Dahlberg networks with has an international transportation coordinator who lives in Chicago and facilitates canine travel throughout North America. While some dogs are acquired directly from the dog-meat industry, others are found as strays, surrendered by owners who no longer want them, or end up in primitive shelters that bear no resemblance to U.S. facilities. Since it takes up to several months for flight arrangements to be made for the Korean dogs, Mr. Dahlberg relies on a cadre of volunteers in that country to foster the dogs in any way possible. Some are kept in kennels, while others are fostered in homes. Veterinary care is provided and the dogs are issued health certificates before they are allowed to fly. Upon arrival in the U.S., the dogs receive a complete wellness check from the rescues clinic, Angel Animal Hospital in North Naples, and are then placed with families on the organizations waiting list. Their arrival is always celebrated on the rescues Facebook page, with photo albums titled Coming to America. It is important that we all do our part to raise awareness of the plight of GOLDENSFrom page 1DENNIS GUYITT / COURTESY PHOTOSAlesia Griffith of Estero with Bo, rescued from South Korea in 2015.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 NEWS A23 BEHIND THE WHEELAmelia Islands true winners dont always get awards Dont judge a book by its cover, and dont judge the best car show purely by its biggest winners. The Amelia Island Concours dElegance awarded Best of Show to a 1929 Duesenberg J/SJ Convertible and a 1963 Ferrari 250/275P for the separate sports car class. While both are rare, beautiful, exotic and valuable enough to deserve these top accolades, spectators shouldnt expect this from the rest of the field, because many of the cars were better. For example, this years honoree was racing legend Emerson Fittipaldi. He never competed in the best-in-show Ferrari, but the show was a reunion for nearly all the cars that he drove to victory. It included a distinct bright pink 1977 Chevrolet IROC Camaro Z/28, and a diminutive 1965 Renault R8 from the first race Fittipaldi ever won. South Florida resident Dan Johnson grew up hearing stories about his grandparents road trips through the Midwest in their 1929 Peerless sedan. He spent his childhood gathering as much info as possible about the car, then spent decades trying to track down a suitable copy. Johnson eventually found an 8-125 sedan similar to the family vehicle. While it was going to be the star in his garage, a little research discovered it was already a Hollywood star. The Peerless was owned by 20th Century Fox studios, and then it was sold to Desilu Productions where it appeared in TV shows like The Untouchables. Only three other sedans like Johnsons are known to be in existence. Today, his is arguably the finest restored example around (Peerless is a brand that faded away so long ago that even his branded sidesteps are worth a small hatchback today.) The show also featured more modern classics, including an entire class devoted to Ed Big Daddy Roth. This designer truly had flair to mix art and science into his hot rods, including once combining red, green and blue lights to create one white headlight. Its rare to see such wild creations on such a wellmanicured lawn like the Ritz-Carleton 18th fairway. Amelia Island was also chosen as the place to re-debut a sports car few people knew existed. Carroll Shelby was the legendary creator of the GT350 Ford Mustang and a force behind the A/C Cobra. Few people knew that in 1968 he attempted a new racecar project. There was only one Lonestar prototype ever created, and it finished restoration in time to celebrate its 50th anniversary. So with all these great cars showing up to this years concours, why didnt any of them win the two top prizes?Concours events are about a parade of opulence and million-dollar cars. The awarded Duesenberg and Ferrari represent the traditional highest echelons of rarity, value and esteem. In fact, these two would be rivaling for top spots at other prestigious events like Pebble Beach.If only looking at the winners, its easy to accuse Amelia Island of maintaining the status quo. But just as its not a good idea to have a caviar buffet, they seem to understand that overindulgence in the worlds highest-priced cars creates an instant desensitized feeling. Thats why Amelia Island offers a much more diverse selection, even if the most intriguing vehicles dont take the top honors. In the same way a restaurant will always tell you about its market-price lobster, Amelia Island is likely to continue giving its top awards to the accepted highest echelon of traditional classic cars. But for those who visit this Florida event enough, we know the most delicious pizza youve ever had is always available and never on the menu. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com 1957 BMW 507 and 1960 Datsun FairladyBig Daddy Roth cars with an Alfa Romeo 6c1929 Peerless 8-125 Best of Show 1963 Ferrari and 1929 Duesenberg 1960 Plymouth XNR winning prototype class Big Daddy Roth Outlaw 1964 Alpine M64 prototype Emerson Fittipaldi race cars Penske Mercedes PC-23 and Renault R8 1968 Shelby Lonestar Lancia Martini Racing Team

This program is designed to bring parents, grandparents, health-care professionals, educators and kids together for a meaningful dialogue that leads to personal revelation and powerful, positive change in homes, schools and communities.The symposium will feature a screening of physician, parent and filmmaker Delaney Rustons award-winning documentary Screenagers, which probes the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts the messy struggles over social media, video games, Internet addiction and academics.Screenagers emerged directly from a challenge I was facing in my own life raising teenagers whose attention was increasingly consumed by screen-based activities, Dr. Ruston says. As a physician, I became increasingly anxious to know how our new tech world affects childrens development. The Stanford-trained physician studied many aspects of filmmaking with a particular focus on film as a vehicle for social change. She uses filmmaking as a platform for advocacy and has partnered with groups such as National Alliance on Mental Illness and the World Health Organization. In addition to Screenagers, which explores the impact of video gaming and social media on self-esteem, empathy, social skills development, academics and brain development, she has produced Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia, about her father, and Hidden Pictures, about global mental health, both for PBS.Dr. Ruston is currently the Filmmakerin-Residence at the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care and Bioethics at Stony Brook Medicine, New York. A discussion with Lisa Tabb, the films executive producer, will follow the screening. The mother of two teens, Ms. Tabb has more than 25 years of experience developing content for television, web and print specializing in parenting, travel, consumer issues and daily news. Prior to becoming a documentary film producer, she spent 15 years producing the news at ABC 7 News in San Francisco, with a focus on trends around parenting, raising kids and emerging technologies.

The Lady Lake resident, 61, was at home earlier in the day when a neighbor called 911 to report Konieczny was drunk and suicidal. According to WOFL TV, first responders took him to the hospital, where he waited for two hours to see a doctor before getting exasperated and stealing an ambulance to drive home. Konieczny parked the ambulance in the driveway of the neighbor he thought had called the police about him, and when Lake County Sheriffs investigators tracked him down, they found Konieczny curled up in the trunk of his own car in his garage. Konieczny was put on no-bond status because he is still on probation from a 2017 drunk driving charge.An escalating situation Things went from bad to worse for 30-year-old Isaac Bonsu on March 6 when he was charged in Alexandria, Va., with felony hit-and-run involving an unlikely victim. Fairfax County Police pulled Bonsu over for an equipment violation, but he apparently forgot to put it in park before exiting the vehicle. Bonsu can be seen on police dashcam video running in front of the car and then being struck by it. Unhurt, Bonsu jumped up and kept running, but police were able to catch him. The Associated Press reported that Bonsu was charged with driving while intoxicated (his third) and possessing marijuana along with the hit-and-run. Awesome Environmentalists decry all the debris washing up on beaches around the world, but a discovery in January near Perth, Australia, has historians thrilled. The Washington Post reported that Tonya Illman and a friend were walking along the beach when she spotted a lovely old bottle. Inside was a damp note, tied with string. We took it home and dried it out ... and it was a printed form, in German, with very faint German handwriting on it, she said. Experts at the Western Australia Museum have determined the note was 132 years old 24 years older than the previous record for a message in a bottle. The note was dated June 12, 1886, from a ship named Paula. Further study revealed that a German Naval Observatory program was analyzing global ocean currents in the area between 1864 and 1933, and an entry in the Paulas captains journal made note of the bottle being tossed overboard. Thousands of other bottles were released into the sea as part of the program, and only 662 have been returned. The last one discovered was in January 1934. It may not be the oldest ever found, but the message in a bottle found by 12-year-old Joseph Vallis of Sandys Parish, Bermuda, certainly traveled an impressive distance more than 1,000 miles. The Royal Gazette reported that Vallis and his Warwick Academy class were picking up trash around Baileys Bay on March 10 when he came across a green bottle with a plastic bag inside. He and his father, Boyd, uncorked the bottle and found a note dated April 2014 that had been set adrift from a French sailing yacht crossing the Atlantic. The note included an email address and invitation to contact the authors, but as of press time, the Vallises were still awaiting a response. The stuff of nightmaresKayaker Sue Spector, 77, was out for a leisurely paddle on the Braden River with her husband and friends on March 4 when someone remarked, Oh look, theres an otter. No sooner had the words been spoken than the mammal with a playful reputation jumped onto Spector in her kayak and began clawing and scratching her arms, nose and ear. He wouldnt let go and I kept screaming. I kept beating him with a paddle, Spector told FOX13 News. She later required stitches, antibiotics and rabies treatment. It was the second otter attack in two days, and Florida Fish and Wildlife has now posted signs about the aggressive otter near the area. The litigious societyNeldin Molina of Denver is dragging Hamburger Marys restaurant in Tampa to court with a $1.5 million lawsuit alleging she was injured there by a drag queens breasts. According to WESH TV, Molina was visiting the restaurant in May 2015 with friends and family when a drag show began. Molina said drag queen Amanda DHod pointed at her and began to approach her, but Molina turned her back to signal she didnt want to participate in the show. The suit, filed in early March, alleges that DHod then walked in front of Molina, grabbed her head and shook it, pounding it violently against the performers fake breasts. The complaint said Molina began to experience headaches and neck pain and later went to the emergency room at Memorial Hospital of Tampa. The lawsuit also notes the restaurant failed to notify patrons of possible danger from the drag show. OopsThe Carelse family of Lakewood, Colo., picked up some groceries at the Walmart in Littleton on March 5, including a box of Quaker 100 Percent Natural Granola with oats, honey and raisins. When they sat down for breakfast the next morning, they told KMGH TV, Anthea Carelse noticed that the best by date on the box was Feb. 22, 1997 more than 21 years ago. Her husband, Josiah, ate his full bowl and didnt suffer any unpleasant consequences, but Anthea stopped after two bites. Josiah planned to return the box to Walmart.

For hoarders, everything is importantResearchers hope to improve on success of treatment therapy NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHYou no doubt have seen reality TV shows about people who hoard mail, gadgets, cats and even trash. Or maybe for you, the reality is a little closer. It could be a neighbor or a family member. When people arent able to throw things away, piles can grow to the ceiling. These piles can render bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens unusable. They can fall over, trap, and injure people. They can catch on fire. Clutter ed homes and yards can attract pests. Neighbors might call the police. Parents can lose custody of children. People dont choose to be hoarders. And they arent being sloppy or lazy. This is a very real mental disorder, says hoarding disorder expert Dr. David Tolin of Hartford Hospitals Institute of Living. It is important to recognize that people with hoarding disorder have lost control of their decision-making abilities. Dr. Tolins NIH-funded research suggests why its hard for people with this disorder to part with items, even things with no real-world value. He found that brain activity was different between people with hoarding disorder and healthy people. Were always puzzled by the fact that many people with hoarding disorder often dont seem terribly bothered by their circumstance, he says. If they dont have to make a decision, the parts of their brain that are largely in charge of becoming bothered are underactive. But when they are forced to decide about whether to discard something, that part of the brain becomes overactive. And so, the brain is essentially screaming that everything is important, he explains. Doctors dont know what causes hoarding disorder. Theres no X-ray or blood test for a diagnosis. Instead, doctors assess how well people are functioning in their lives. Hoarding disorder can start during a persons teens or later. And it can grow more severe over the decades. Do you know someone who may need help? Try to be gentle, calm and patient. It might take several conversations before the person agrees to work on the problem. Try not to start an argument. If a person is not really motivated to do something about the problem, they can dig in their heels. Arguing can even make the problem worse, Dr. Tolin warns. Theres no effective medication for hoarding disorder, although studies are in progress. Right now, Dr. Tolin says, cognitive behavioral therapy is the only evidence-based treatment we have for hoarding. This is a type of talk therapy that teaches people how to change their thinking patterns and react differently to situations. Dr. Tolins team hopes to improve cognitive behavioral therapy so that it becomes even more effective at helping people to discard items. He and his researchers are analyzing the brain activities of people before and after they are successfully treated for hoarding disorder. If the research team can identify the biological mechanisms of successful treatments, they might be able to develop treatments that are even better. Some people with hoarding disorder are helped by joining a support group with others who have the disorder. There are also organizing professionals who specialize in helping people get rid of clutte r. To find more resources for this and other mental health issues, visit www.nimh.nih. gov/health/find-help.

Offer Expires 3/29/18 PET TALESPetpourri: The skinny on dog and cat care BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationCaring for old cats, allergies and ear infections, how to communicate with stressed pets, dueling dogs, hair loss in dogs and cats, responding to disasters: Those were just a few of the hundreds of sessions presented at the North American Veterinary Conference last month in Orlando and the Western Veterinary Conference earlier this month in Las Vegas. We attend veterinary conferences to learn about advances in veterinary medicine and find news for future features. Here are some takeaways for pet owners. Chronic kidney disease is common in aging cats, affecting 28 to 31 percent of them. Weight loss is one of the clues that its advancing. Cats start to lose weight two or more years prior to death from kidney disease, says veterinary nutritionist Dottie Laflamme, who spoke at NAVC. She says even small body weight changes can be significant. Maintaining body weight and condition may help to deter disease and death in cats.Cats energy requirements start increasing when they are 10 to 12 years old, in part because of reduced digestive function. They need more calories than younger adult cats, so a highly palatable diet is important. We dont want cats to be fat, but we dont want them to lose weight just because were not giving them enough calories, Dr. Laflamme says. That can be a difficult balance in cats with chronic kidney disease.Equally important, be aware that cats can have kidney disease without showing any signs. That was one of the takeaways from a talk on aging cats presented by Susan Little, DVM, at WVC. Again, keep an eye on weight. Dr. Little says 57 percent of cats have lost weight by the time owners notice and bring them to the veterinarian.Bald is beautiful? Not so much in dogs and cats with hair loss. Alopecia, as hair loss conditions are known, has inflammatory and non-inflammatory causes, according to Darren Berger, DVM, a dermatology specialist from Iowa State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine, who spoke at NAVC. While some types of alopecia are caused by genetic defects, one has an easily preventable cause. Post-clipping alopecia is when hair doesnt regrow after being trimmed close to the skin; it is usually seen in Nordic breeds such as Alaskan malamutes, Samoyeds and Siberian huskies. Its thought to occur when the coat is clipped while the hair is in a prolonged resting, or telogen, phase. It can take as long as a year for hair to regrow, but prevention is easy, Dr. Berger says: Dont shave these breeds unless its absolutely necessary. A minority of pet owners purchase pet health insurance, although its one of the most rapidly growing industries in the pet health field. At the end of 2016, just under 2 million pets were insured. If your pet is one of them, know whats covered and make sure your veterinarian has your policy information on file. Its not unusual for pet owners to forget that they have coverage, says Kerry OHara, Ph.D., who presented veterinary pricing statistics at WVC. In her talk Fear Free: Learning to Listen to Our Patients, licensed veterinary technician Debbie Martin, who specializes in behavior, spoke on how veterinarians and staff can ease pets fear, anxiety and stress by understanding their sensory perceptions and how they differ from human perception. To provide pets with a comfortable experience, she says, avoid direct eye contact, speak sl owly and softly, wait for the pet to approach, avoid unpleasant odors, and create pleasant associations with people, areas and equipment. Pet owners can use the same techniques at home to create a pleasant environment for pets.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 NEWS A33 Ill be in the corner with vodka until season is overTake a 10 30 minute walk each day. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes a day. Drink plenty of water. Make at least three people smile a day. These are just a few of the 5 Awesome Tips for a Beautiful Life an internet meme currently making the rounds on social media but heres the problem with trying to have a beautiful life: I have no time. Like many, I have a job or three, a family, a home, social obligations, a 20-year-old cat and a need to sleep occasionally. But the biggest challenge to having a beautiful life is that its the height of season in Southwest Florida and Im about to lose my mind. Im not going to pick on snowbirds and tourists when Ive vented in the past, I get a barrage of emails from winter residents who remind me (often in all capital letters) that if it wasnt for us, your local economy would be in ruins. So, no need to send any hate mail. I realize that I live in an area that attracts retirees from the north who are looking for sunshine and pickleball and golf and that our infrastructure, roads and parking lots dont have enough room for full-time working residents and people from up north who are enjoying a beautiful life. Season is busy and chaotic lets all try to play nice in this crowded sandbox. Take a 10 minute walk every day? Please. The check engine light has been on in my car since October and I cant find 30 minutes to get an oil change, let alone walk. Though if I dont get my beloved little Ford Fiesta serviced, Im going to be walking a lot farther and more often than Id like to. And how does one sit in silence for 10 minutes when the to-do list in ones head keeps adding more and more items? I could use that 10 minutes to gather up some of the dirty laundry thats multiplying in an ever-growing pile on our bathroom floor and throw it into the washing machine. The only time Im sitting is when Im in my car on U.S. 41 when traffic is at a complete standstill and Im staring at license plates from Michigan, Ohio and Indiana and its not very silent as I scream curse words at my windshield. Id love to drink plenty of water, but when I have a moment to drink, its usually after 5 p.m. and its almost always vodka because Im so stressed I mean, vodka at least looks like water does that count? As far as making people smile goes, Ive got to work on that. My seasonal stress disorder causes me to be impatient and surly with the sweet checkout workers at Publix, other drivers in this unbearable traffic and even my hardworking, devoted husband. Season begins to dwindle after Easter as the humidity gets worse, the afternoon thunderstorms start and hurricane season ramps up in June. Our electric bills will go up as we overwork our air conditioners, but things will calm down and hopefully, well all have time for walking, water, silence and smiles. In the meantime, I will get my oil changed and Ill try to be nice to all the people in the waiting room getting theirs changed too. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com Call Today! 239.594.303711985 Tamiami Trail North Naples, FLOPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 10-5, SUNDAY 11-4Visit our new website at agostinos.com Also visit: interiorsbyagostinos.com Visit Our ShowroomFINE FURNITURE.

MONEY & INVESTINGEconomy seems to be booming, so why are retail sales down?Just what will it take for the U.S. consumer to open up his or her wallet and start spending some money? Unemployment is at historical lows. Wages are rising. Interest rates remain close to historical lows. The stock market is at elevated levels. Housing prices continue to climb. Yet for the third month in a row, retail sales have declined. So why is this figure falling and what does it tell us about the economy at large? Retail sales are the purchase of finished goods by the general public. It includes everything from large purchases, like cars, to groceries. Given that consumer spending makes up about two-thirds of the U.S. economy, any change in these buying habits has major repercussions on everything from the stock market to taxes collected to unemployment. The past three months of declining retail sales are significant for a couple of reasons. First, it is the first time this has happened since 2012. Second, the subsectors within the retail sales that led the decline were mostly discretionary areas. Automobile purchases, furniture sales, personal care buying, appliance purchases and electronic sales all fell. All of these products are not needed for living; they are bought with extra disposable income when consumers feel good about their finances. The fact that these areas all were in decline maybe shows that the average consumer is not as well off as we believe. Of course, not all sales fell. Building material purchases increased during this period, pointing to a continued strong housing market. Sales of online retailers also increased, along with those of sporting good and hobby stores. This shows that people are still shopping for smaller purchases and continue to increase their online spending. But why is overall spending, especially for large purchases, down? Some economists believe that some consumers are now tapped out after spending their savings on the recovery from hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey. Others say that people are waiting to see how lower taxes in 2018 will affect them before spending. And there is the thought that higher stocks, wages and housing prices only benefit a small percentage of the overall population and that most workers arent benefiting from these economic drivers so cant spend more. Regardless of the reason, it is definitely concerning that retail sales are in decline. This is especially true as sales were rising at an annualized rate of close to 4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017. Many believe that continuing increases in employment, with over 300,000 jobs created in February alone, will increase retail sales in the upcoming months. Others anticipate that greater take-home pay due to the tax cuts starting this year will also reverse this trend. You can bet that the Federal Reserve and its new chairman, Jerome Powell, will be watching this number carefully as it makes its decision whether to continue to raise interest rates. Falling sales often leads to falling prices, which is something that is very concerning to the Fed and to the global economy at large.

A36 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY applicant records. But hiring expert Scott Wintrip cautions that hiring technologies can also create their share of undesirable outcomes in the workplace, making it important that companies think twice before jumping on board the tech train. Unfortunately, hiring technologies arent perfect solutions for all businesses, says Mr. Wintrip, the author of High Velocity Hiring: How to Hire Top Talent in an Instant. Job boards can flood HR with hundreds of unusable candidates, and skillstesting software can fail to accurately predict how someone will perform in a job, he explains. Is technology the problem? Sometimes. But often its because an organization chose the wrong technology for its needs or has failed to use automation correctly. Mr. Wintrip adds that automation is expensive and, therefore, mistakes with technology can cost a company quite a bit. Consider the tens of thousands of dollars in wasted hiring expense alone, not to mention lost productivity thanks to technology-based missteps. Clearly, companies need to think carefully about choosing the best hiring technology for their needs, he says. You really cant afford to take this decision lightly. In order to avoid expensive mistakes, Mr. Wintrip suggests owners/managers answer these five questions every time they consider adding to or changing their companys hiring technology: Why do we need this automation? Before you choose to adopt any new and flashy automation, figure out your motives. Do you really need that new applicant tracking system, automated reference checking process or video interviewing service? And if so, why? Is it truly able to improve how you hire? Or are you considering it for another reason like perhaps one of your competitors just started using that same technology and you feel the need to keep up? Always check your motives to ensure youre pursuing technology for the right reasons, he says. Youll really regret it if you impulsively take on automation that fails to innovate your hiring. How will we use it? What is your intention for fitting this new technology into your existing hiring process? Does it truly fit your organizations process, or will it require you to totally overhaul your systems in an unproductive manner? Before you adopt any new technology, take a look to make sure it will enhance your current process, he says. Otherwise, you will end up serving your technology instead of it serving you. How will it reduce effort? Which aspects of your hiring process will the new technology make more efficient? And by how much? If new automation will only marginally improve the efficiency of your hiring, then you need to take pause, he says. Before you make any decisions, you need to ask yourself if its really worth the investment. Does it appear easy to implement, learn and use? Ask the vendor of the product youre considering for a test drive. Better yet, request to use it alongside your current method for a short time. Then compare the results. Does the technology help streamline your hiring? Is it easy to learn and use? If so, keep moving ahead. If not, do not adopt that technology. Any vendor with a high-quality product should stand behind their merchandise, says Mr. Wintrip. If you get a sense that the vendor is hesitant to let you try before you buy, consider that a red flag. What results must it achieve to be worth the time and money? What expectations do you have about the impact of the automation? What protocols must it impr ove, and by how much? Ask the vendor to demonstrate how the technology will achieve those results. This question is the final test, Mr. Wintrip says. Technology requires a substantial investment of money and time. The ROI must be worth it. Not all hiring technology is created equal, he concludes. Dont assume that a program is right for your business just because its new and popular. Taking the time to ask yourself these crucial questions will help you decide whether that new tech is worth it or not saving you money and time in the long run.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 BUSINESS A37 In 1954, my current chairman took over an Australian company and built a media empire that launched TV channels such as FOX News, FX, Fox Sports Network and National Geographic. It was split in two in 2013, and I got many enterprises you may know, such as The Australian, Barrons, Dow Jones, Harlequin, HarperCollins, MarketWatch, The New York Post, The Times, The Wall Street Journal, William Morrow and Zondervan, among others. (Fox News went to the other company, 21st Century Fox.) My market value was recently near $9 billion. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Get Your Kids InvestingGet your kids interested in money and investing while theyre still young, and you may set them up for a life of financial security and possibly even early retirement! After all, children have much more of a critical ingredient for wealth building than the rest of us: time. Here are some ways to get them started:1. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus Money As You Grow site at consumerfinance.gov (click on Consumer Tools) offers activities for kids of all ages. Youngsters can also learn from the Secret Millionaires Club at smckids.com it offers videos and games and features advice from Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. 2. Maintain a mock portfolio. Have your kids look around their home, school and town, and theyll spot companies such as Apple, Boeing, Disney, Facebook, General Motors, McDonalds, Microsoft, Netflix, Nike, Starbucks and Walmart. Have them list companies that interest them most, with ticker symbols, current stock prices and todays date. Pretend theyve bought a few shares of each, then have them look up and record the latest prices every week or so, calculating their gains or losses. Such short-term stock price movements arent terribly meaningful, but they can help a child understand how the market works. (You can set up an online portfolio at sites such as finance.yahoo.com/portfolios or elsewhere, which can make tracking their holdings even easier.) 3. Follow companies of interest together, watching them expand internationally, add stores, announce new products or services, compete with rivals, and report quarterly sales and earnings. Explore their websites and annual reports. Watch how news affects stock prices. 4. Eventually, help your kid(s) actually invest. You can open a custodial brokerage account, or you might informally sell some of your own shares to your child. Once your child turns 18, she can open her own brokerage account. Teens (and clever preteens) can learn more in our book, The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens: 8 Steps to Having More Money Than Your Parents Ever Dreamed Of, by David and Tom Gardner with Selena Maranjian (Touchstone, $16). Missed MillionsI bought 3,000 shares of Intuitive Surgical for around $16 apiece, held for several years while it moved sideways and then ultimately sold when it was trading for around $30 per share. I was tired of waiting for its story to unfold, which was a big mistake. I did make several thousand dollars on the investment, but I could have made so much more. Argh! By the way, at a later point I noticed the Motley Fool recommending the stock, but I didnt buy any because at that time shares were priced at several times more than I had sold mine for. Dumb! R.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. That investment didnt deliver a loss, but you did lose out on a lot of potential gains. The company, which makes robotic surgical machines, split its shares 3-for 1 back in October. Pre-split, shares were trading above $1,000 post-split, they have recently been trading in the low $400s. If youd still had your 3,000 shares when the stock was at $1,000, they would have been worth $3 million! Its good to find and invest in strong companies with great prospects for continued growth, but you do have to wait for their potential to be realized. Sometimes that can take a while. Remember, too, that terrific companies that grow for many years will often seem overvalued along the way, scaring many away. Investing in InfrastructureBrookfield Infrastructure Partners, L.P. (NYSE: BIP) is a master limited partnership (meaning its treated differently, taxwise, than most public companies), owning and operating critically important infrastructure assets that provide water, energy, data and transportation to millions of people around the world. The companys funds from operations have been growing, rising 14 percent from 2016 to 2017. Much of its cash flow stems from long-term contracts in many cases in markets where it operates as a regional monopoly. Unlike many other companies that prosper or falter along with the economy, Brookfield Infrastructure is much less vulnerable to the economic environment. After all, people may put off buying a new car in a recession, but theyll keep paying for water and energy. Brookfield plans to increase its payout between 5 percent and 9 percent each year as it steadily expands its portfolio. In 2017, it invested $2.7 billion in new assets and ended the year with $3 billion in available funds to continue its growth. Infrastructure growth is a massive global need. Between 2014 and 2045, the global urban population is expected to increase by more than 2 billion people, who will need access to energy, water, data and transportation. A recent pullback in Brookfields share price resulting in a hefty dividend yield near 4.6 percent presents a nice opportunity for income-seeking long-term investors. (The Motley Fool has recommended Brookfield.) My history goes way, way back. The oldest c omp an y in North America, I was chartered in 1670 as a fur-trading business. In 1870, I ceded my vast western territories to the new country of Canada. Today, Im a global retailing giant, with more than 480 stores ranging from luxury to discount, in various formats, such as department stores. You might know some of my brands: Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Off 5th and Gilt. (Stores bearing my own name are well-known in Canada.) I employ more than 66,000 people and have many real estate investments. Who am I? (Answer: Hudsons Bay Co.) Shifting Into ReverseQWhat are reverse stock splits? T.M., Augusta, GeorgiaAImagine you own 100 shares of a stock trading at $10 per share. With a regular split, such as a 2-for1, youd end up with 200 shares of a $5 stock. Reverse splits go in the other direction. With a 1-for-10 reverse split, for example, youd end up with 1 share for each 10 that you owned, and the share price will be multiplied by 10, so youd have 10 shares, priced around $100 each. Note that the total value of your shares doesnt change its still $1,000. The company simply increased its stock price by decreasing its number of shares. Reverse splits are often done to avoid getting delisted from a stock exchange that has minimum stockprice requirements. They can also prop up stock prices so they look less embarrassing. Be wary of companies announcing reverse splits, as theyre often in trouble. ***QI know its best to invest in stocks for the long term, but how long is that? B.P., Janesville, WisconsinAAim to hold on to the stocks you buy for at least several, if not many, years. As long as the company remains healthy and is likely to keep growing at a good clip, and as long as its stock price hasnt gotten way ahead of itself, its probably best to hang on. Many fortunes have been built by people who stayed invested in solid stocks for decades. Remember, too, that long-term capital gains are generally taxed at a lower rate than short-term gains. Thats another benefit of long-term investing. (For capital gains, long term means at least a year and a day.) Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com. Small business owners/managers can benefit from SCORE workshopsSCORE Naples Small Business Academy offers two workshops in April. Selling is NOT Telling: Switching the Conversation from Features to Customer-Relevant Benefits takes place from 4-6 p.m. Monday, April 16, at the Community Foundation of Collier County headquarters at 1110 Pine Ridge Road. Selling is critical to the success of all small businesses. Unfortunately, many salespeople are often guilty of asking prospects a few unfocused questions to engage them and then launching into a presentation listing all the features of whatever it is that they are trying to sell. The prospect typically responds with objections because they dont see why these features are relevant to them. As a result, the sale is lost. There is a better way. Workshop attendees will learn how to ask the kind of questions that will help them better understand their customers needs and, therefore, focus on how their product or service can help meet those needs. Presenter Sam Black has more than 40 years of experience in sales and customer service, the last 27 years as a consultant covering sales and sales management, telesales and customer service for call centers as well as retail sales and customer service. Ms. Black also provides assessments for hiring and developing the best sales, customer service and telesales teams. In 2015, she was named Woman of the Year by the American Business Womens Association Neapolitan Chapter and Bonita Springs Noon Rotarian of the Year. Registration is $25. Interviewing, Hiring and What Comes Next is a free workshop and lunch offered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, 2390 Tamiami Trial N. Attendees will learn about some of the most important employee management issues for small businesses, including how federal laws can impact hiring practices, how to use progressive discipline to handle employee performance issues and policy violations, how to effectively recruit and hire, how to identify the costs of poor hiring. The session will also include a review of common legal issues associated with employee termination. Presenter Kathy Rossi, a consultant with Paychex, has worked in human resources for more than 25 years in a wide range of industries, including health care, legal, homebuilding and manufacturing. She has a bachelors degree in management from Hodges University and a masters in human resources management from Walden University. To sign up or for more information about either of the above workshops, call the SCORE Naples office at 430-0081 or visit www.scorenaples.org. The nonprofit organization also offers free one-on-one and/or online counseling for those in all stages of business, whether just starting out, up and running or ready to sell/retire.

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island).The February report revealed a 9 percent increase in the overall median closed price to $364,000 in February 2018 from $333,000 in February 2017. Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, pointed out this was due in part to a 95 percent increase in closed sales for properties priced over $1 million in February. In fact, the median closed price within each of the five price categories tracked by NABOR decreased. The greatest decrease appeared in the $1 million to $2 million category, which reflected a 12 percent drop to $1,326,000 from $1,500,000 in February 2017.Inventory continued to rise for the fifth straight month, but it decreased in February by 3 percent to 6,286 properties compared to 6,466 properties in February 2017. Overall pending sales in February decreased 3 percent but increased 14 percent in the $1 million and above category and 39 percent in the $2 million and above category. I believe the high end market is poised for a good year, Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager of Downing-Frye Realty Inc., predicted. The economy is doing much better. The stock market has risen substantially over the last year. All in all, many Americans have seen their financial picture improve. This should translate to improved sales, particularly with the high-end market.Kathy Zorn, broker/owner of Better Homes and Garden Real Estate Pristine, added the new tax laws appear to be inspiring confidence in wealthy buyer. She also pointed out that NABORs February report showed 44 of the 52 homes purchased in the $2 million price category were cash purchases.House Hunting1690 N. Copeland Drive, Marco Island The lavish Greystone Manor was built two decades ago by the late New York Yankees legend and Marco Island resident Bob Turley. On nearly 3 acres of land spanning four lots on the Roberts Bay, the 13,000-square-foot residence has undergone renovation twice since construction, including multiple additions. Two gated entries, plus perimeter hedges and fence, provide for total privacy. There is a porte cochere grand entry as well as a separate motor court near the service entry. From the grand salons hand-painted Renaissance-style ceiling to the librarys custom cherry cabinetry, the climatecontrolled wine room and the separate quarters for live-in staff, no detail has been spared. The propertys 190 feet of water frontage includes 100 feet for yacht dockage and two lifts for smaller watercrafts. There are also a tennis court, fountains and statues, fruit trees and a rose garden, plus more than 4,800 square feet of covered patio with everything for outdoor entertaining. And there is enough land available to build another separate structure on the property, such as a recording studio, business office or gym. Jim Prange and Nikki Prange-Carroll of Premier Sothebys International Realty on Marco Island have the listing for $6.85 million.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYFalling in love with London Bay Homes Port Royal Estate modelThe water! The views! We havent stopped talking about London Bay Homes new custom estate model at 4395 Gordon Drive in Port Royal since we toured it the other day. Its right on Cutlass C ove, perf ect for a 29-foot boat and incredibly close to Gordon Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. The views took our breath away: The quiet little cove and the beautiful greens of mangroves on Keewaydin Island just across the water. It gets even better, promised Toby Cloutier, sales executive with London Bay, as we explored the first floor, impressed by Romanza Interior Designs selection of 36-by-36-inch honed stone flooring; sapele, anigre and wenge woods; an extra-large kitchen island with a galley sink, and a wide-plank wood floor in the study. Construction is nearing completion and we love the idea of being able to move in right away. No need to pick out furniture or even artwork. Romanza has selected everything, creating a clean-lined modern aesthetic that suits our personalities. The luxury estate has three guest rooms, a wine room and a luxurious pool with a spa overlooking the cove. Theres even an Evo flat-top grill in the outdoor kitchen. Toby has been our personal concierge, helping us navigate the builders Naples Collection of custom estate homes from Port Royal to Park Shore. Weve toured furnished model homes in Old Naples, imagining living close to downtown Fifth Avenue strolling the streets and dining at Verginas while listening to live music under the starts. But after walking through the 4395 Gordon Drive home, we realized we could also fulfill our dream of having a boat in the backyard or go down the street to the beach with membership eligibility to the Cutlass Cove Club a private beach park with a tiki hut. As we explored every inch of the estates 4,648 square feet, we were amazed at the thought put into the tiniest details: Lighting that will paint rooms in different moods and highlight art; reglet channels accenting walls and framing doors; and a sense of airiness created by floating cabinetry, a woodand-tempered-glass staircase, recessed baseboards and sculptural ceilings. Theres also a built-in wardrobe, dresser and shelves with wood and lacquer finishes in the first-floor guest room. We stepped into the master suite and saw Toby grin. It was his wait for it moment. Located on the second floor, the room is designed so the bed faces a wall of glass sliding doors showcasing the cove and mangroves. It has a large private terrace with a fireplace. Motorized shades are controlled from the bed. This would be the best way to wake up, I told my husband. The suite also has an oversized closet finished with custom Poliform cabinetry and his-and-her baths. Mine is divine: A walk-in shower that leads to a tub overlooking the c ove, several v anities and a Calacutta gold-tiled partition. His bathroom has a gorgeous deepcolored granite countertop and dark chocolate wood cabinetry. A loft offers a kitchen with a Wolf microwave, espresso machine, undercounter refrigerator and even a stackable washer and dryer. Two other bedrooms are situated on the second floor, including a large VIP suite. I think Id spend the entire morning on the terrace and the afternoon by the pool when were not out on the boat, I happily pointed out to my husband. He beamed at me: Its perfect but Oh, yeah. Toby wants to take us through the other house, I remembered. London Bay is building a second luxury custom estate right next door at 4375 Gordon Drive. Could it be the one? To schedule a visit and learn more about London Bay Homes exclusive downtown opportunities, call Toby Cloutier at 239280-7367 or visit LondonBay.com.

B24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Kalea Bay offers sensational high-rise residencesClubhouse a phenomenal amenity Its been over two months since the first residents of Kalea Bay, a gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, moved into their beautiful new homes in Tower 1. To date, more than 100 of the towers 120 residences have been closed. However, a few are still available for those who want to enjoy an incredible lifestyle today both inside and outside of their residence. Thats possible because the buildings rooftop amenities are already being enjoyed by the towers residents. Those amenities include 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 Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. 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. With Tower 1 nearly sold out, the main sales focus has been transferred to the communitys Tower 2. Like its predecessor, the second tower is also 22-stories with 120 homes. Specifically, 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 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. Speaking of amenities, Kalea Bays spectacular main amenity area, which includes the clubhouse, opened in early January and has quickly become the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. 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. The clubhouse itself 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 fitness center, 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 also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

B26 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBeach Club sets Mediterra apartI hope everyone is enjoying winter season and that you had a chance to visit London Bay Homes models at Mediterra during the Parade of Homes earlier this month. The models are spectacular! If you missed the Parade, be sure to visit Mediterra and see the models. Ive absolutely fallen in love with them and Im getting close to finally deciding which one to buy. Youll be the first to know! Last week, I enjoyed my first golf experience at Mediterra. It was amazing! I told my Sales Executive, Lisa, all about it, and mentioned I would really like to revisit the communitys 10,000 squarefoot Beach Club. Its a short drive from Mediterra on Little Hickory Island. No other community Ive seen has anything close. My 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 gave 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, after the renovation, the bar area took on a sportier feeling with large screen televisions. It also morphed into a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. The 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 seared ahi tuna with a glass-noodle stir fry and smoked-chicken 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 keeping the favorites. I dont 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 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 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 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! Next week will be all about tennis. Have an awesome week!Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road.

Growth in the luxury home market in Naples is not just a seasonal phenomenon. According to Phil Wood, president and CEO of John R. Wood Properties, the 12-month rolling numbers are remarkable for properties above $1 million but especially in the condominium market, where the data shows a 60 percent increase in closed sales over the last 12 months.The February report showed a 6 percent increase in inventory for condominiums in the $300,000 and below market. This was the highest increase reported among all price categories and home types. Interestingly, this segments median closed price dropped 2 percent in February (month over month) to $200,000 from $205,000 in February 2017.Geographically, sales activity in the Naples beach single-family market outpaced all other areas. Increased buyer interest in luxury properties in this highly valued location resulted in a 33 percent uptick in closed sales, yet the heightened attention also influenced median closed prices, which rose 52 percent in February to $1,350,000 from $860,000 in February 2017.Similar to an unusual closed sales anomaly in January that was reported last month, a high number of delayed closed sales in one North Naples luxury condominium influenced Februarys closed sales, median closed price and days on market statistics for the month. As reflected in the report, there were 56 closed sales of condominiums above $1 million in the North Naples area in February (a 211 percent increase over February 2017). A great majority of them were identified as having zero days on market, which broker analysts contend were from one particular condominiums sales activity.

BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comFor all those guitar enthusiasts hoping to satiate their thirst for fantastical finger-picking, we found your jam: Richard Smith, often hailed as the best living guitarist by genre experts, musicians and fans, takes the stage with Neapolitan Frank Corso, an accomplished and widely hailed guitarist in his own right, at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at The Norris Center. Born of a friendship that sprouted about six years ago, the pair will each play their signature styles ragtime country blues, old Southern rural blues and variations thereof for Mr. Corso, and anything from Chet Atkins-style country, piano rags, classical and maybe even Souza marches for Mr. Smith when Mr. Corso opens for his friend in a wideranging concert that will hit a sweet spot for all lovers of guitar music. I think it will be a very interesting mix, Mr. Corso said. Its all united in that we play with our thumb and fingers rather than flat-picking the guitar. It should be an interesting night of really good guitar music. Theres a lot of old standards that might crossover into both our styles, Mr. Smith said of the upcoming concert. Its so much fun to collaborate because it has a two-four swing groove. HAT ARE THE OBLIGATIONS OF AN artist to her public? Playwright Deb Hiett (pronounced height) began contemplating that question when she read about the controversy surrounding Lee Harpers second novel, which she had actually written before her best-selling classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. Though the author insisted for decades she would never publish another book, suddenly her earlier effort was released. Some people questioned if Ms. Harper had truly changed her mind after all these years and whether she was lucid enough to give permission. I have to say that I had always been very inspired by Harper Lee as an Alabama writer, being myself an Alabama writer (now living in Los Angeles), Ms. Hiett says. I was fascinated by what had happened to her during the last years of her life, the fact that she had never published again SEE GUITAR MEN, C28 SEE BOOK, C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTNAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY | SECTION CWWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM INSIDEWEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018Cuisine News Ivan Seligman does The Dish at Sails, and Lindsey Nesmith catches up with William Conroy of 1500 South.

Were excited to announce our ofce is now open for business. MARCO ISLAND LOCATION950 N. Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 Family secrets and separations fuel a darker shade of cozy mystery Killer Tied by Lesley A. Diehl. Camel Press. 264 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95. Lesley Diehls sixth Eve Appel Mystery, like the others, uses her background as a former professor of psychology to deepen readers understanding of her characters dilemmas, fears and frustrations. At first, the most unsettled and needy character seems to be Eleanor, a young woman who comes to the rural Florida town of Sabal Bay with the seemingly outlandish claim that she is Eves half-sister. But how can this be? The woman is much younger than Eve, who has been led to believe that her parents drowned when she was very young. Eleanors stepfather, who tried to hire Eve to find his daughter, is found stabbed to death, and the weapon turns out to be a very recognizable knife belonging to Lionel Egret, Eves mysterious father-inlaw who leads the life of a recluse and resents Eves marriage to his son. Eve, just launching her career as a private detective, probably should not take on a case that hits so close to home, but she cant resist professionalizing her busybody tendencies. Maybe the story of Eves parents death, received from the lips of her loving grandmother, Grandy, is not true. With her partMiccosukee husband Sammy, Eve now has the responsibility for their adopted sons. How can she perform her motherly duties and deal with the stresses of her pregnancy while tracking down the missing or maimed branches in the family tree? Accompanied by a good friend, the friendly mobster named Nappi (Napolitano), Eve shuttles back and forth, leaving the Lake Okeechobee area for investigatory trips to Connecticut and Upstate New York. The diseased family tree needs to reveal its secrets, and Eve is determined to pry them loose. Others, however, are just as determined to scare Eve off the track and keep those secrets hidden. Hospital records and important pieces of family history Eve seeks to pin down are missing, which suggests to Eve that she has adversaries trying to foil her search for the truth. Who are they? And what, in particular, are their motives? The pregnancy affecting her, Eve is disoriented in more ways than one. Nausea is the easy part! This novel continues to pay attention to Eves consignment shop business, but its left to Grandy, Eves partner Madeleine and a new associate named Shelley to keep the business going. Killer Tied is all about family disfunction and family secrets. Its about violence and threats. These are not cheery topics, and even though this series has gained its audience by comfortably fitting into the cozy mystery category and maintains some of the lightness and humor expected in that subgenre, some might find it darker than expected. Also, there is a degree of complexity in the hunt for motives, the confusions of identity and the ramifications of neglect that gets in the way of easy reading. Complication can be overdone, even if all is made clear in the end Nevertheless, I admire the tone and spirit of this novel and the limitless spunk of the Eve Appel character. Shes a person who takes her responsibilities seriously but doesnt take herself too seriously. Shes fully aware of her shortcomings, which include traits that only make her more endearing. Charming as well is the authors representation of the slice of Florida in which she sets this series. About the authorLesley A. Diehl retired from her life as a professor of psychology and reclaimed her country roots by moving to a small cottag e in the Butternut River Valley in Upstate New York. In the winter she migrates to old Florida, the land of cowboys, scrub palmetto and open fields of grazing cattle, a place where spurs still jingle in the post office and gators make golf a contact sport. She is the author of several wellreceived mystery series as well as short stories. A previous novel in this series, Mud Bog Murder, was reviewed in these pages.

Ms. Pogrebin will discuss My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew, her friendly exposition on the Jewish holidays and memoir of her quest to enhance her Jewish literacy. The book will be available for sale and signing, and the author will answer questions. The event, sponsored by the Collier/ Lee chapter of Hadassah, will run from 2:30-4:15 p.m. Tickets for $15 are available by calling the Jewish Federation of Greater Naples at 263-4205. If space permits, admission will be $20 at the door.A Jewish makeoverEditors note: Florida Weekly book critic Phil Jasons review of Ms. Pogrebins My Jewish Year follows here. What a joy it is to be able to share vicariously this talented and energetic authors journey, a journey self-designed to deepen her Jewish knowledge and identity. At first glance a sure-fire, gimmicky publishing venture, it turns out to be much more than that. Its a kind of Jewish makeover. It has soul and determination and great sensitivity. As the subtitle makes clear, Ms. Pogrebin organizes her book around the calendar of Jewish holidays, including an unexpected number of fast days. Each chapter is part embellished journal entry, part citations of relevant observations/short teachings by rabbis the author interviewed along the way. As a character in her own book, Ms. Pogrebin is presented as a somewhat rebellious family member who feels her Jewish life has not been as rich as it might have been. She has set out to see what, if anything, she has missed and to decide what to do about it. What new understandings will she turn into changed behavior? This question not only generates suspense, but also deepens our interest in the implicit question that lies behind it: What new understandings will she gain? How will she react to them? How will her readers react? Readers are encouraged to let the author be their guide, to imagine themselves in her place, to measure their reactions against hers and to trust her certainties and her uncertainties.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYafter To Kill a Mockingbird, despite years of people craving and wanting more of this gifted writer. It started me thinking of that thematic question: what does an artist owe the world? Ms. Hietts play, Miss Keller Has No Second Book, is emphatically not about Harper Lee, but was very loosely inspired by her story. Our lives are improved by these artistic endeavors, she says. When we find a writer, painter, dramatist, we yearn for more that we got from them. Yet its almost no consequence what toll that might take on them. Its interesting to think that its a demand, its an expectation the public starts to have, when its a celebrated work. Miss Keller Has No Second Book opens at Gulfshore Playhouse on March 31, with previews March 29-30, and runs through April 14. The play was a selection at the venues fourth annual New Play Festival two years ago; this is its world premiere. Ms. Hiett describes it as a drama with lots of humor. The story revolves around two sisters: Agnes Keller (Amy Van Nostrand) who wrote a best-selling book many years ago, and her sister, Ramona (Maureen Silliman), with whom she lives. Even though Agnes book was a huge success, they have succeeded in creating this very private world; their home is their sanctuary, Ms. Hiett says. For different reasons, the outside world suddenly encroaches on this safe, private space, and starts making demands on it and on them. As the play unfolds, questions are asked about how people cope with change when it is forced upon you, how we deal with the different expectations of family and of the outside world. The play is about different generations, the different rhythms and dynamics between generations. And it also asks the questions of what does an artist, or what does a writer, owe her readers, the obligations of the writer in the world and the demands we place on artists, the expectations we have as the consumers of the writing and the art. What demands does that put on the artist? Her play is also about family and the obligations members put on each other. As Ms. Hiett puts it, At its core, this is really about two funny, eccentric, female characters who, at fairly late stages in their lives, have to face not only the demands of a changing world but also the challenges that their bonds of family love and obligation put upon them. Family ties are so wonderfully complicated and full of humor and compromise and co-dependency. And the unconscious parallels, the way we repeat history unconsciously from generation to generation is endlessly fascinating to me. Im also enthralled by the way family can, in the very same moment, break your heart and make you pee your pants from laughing so hard. Maybe its the mystery of shared experience. Even the most strained family relationships have the ability to elicit a full range of human emotion. And as a writer, thats just the best playground ever. I just love it. Ms. Hiett is thrilled that Maureen Silliman and Amy Van Nostrand, two Gulfshore Playhouse favorites, are reprising the roles of the sisters, having played them during the 2016 reading at the New Works Festival. At this phase, the actors have input about their characters and lines; the play is in transition. Ms. Van Nostrand and Ms. Silliman helped bring the characters to life, she says. They were so helpful and instrumental to me to go deeper with what I had started in the play and really mine the richness of all the relationships between these characters, says Ms. Hiett. Also, to heighten the stakes for what these people want, what theyre willing to do for it, and how far theyre willing to go to protect themselves and help each out or not. Having such amazing talent at that stage of the development was really instrumental in being where I am now with the play. Its such a luxury to have smart, talented, conscientious and sensitive actors be part of this creation. Theyre sensitive to me, to the playwrights process. And the play is changing as they work on it, she says, morphing and developing and deepening. Its such an interesting and sensitive and fragile process, she says, because its creating life. Its creating this piece that is coming to life right in front of us. (Its wonderful) to have collaborators that are really savvy to that tender process and are so generous to go on whatever ride Im taking them on from day to day, and with the guidance of our director, Emilie Beck, who is so gifted and generous and smart. It frees me up, which is such a gift to the playwright. The feeling is mutual. Deb is someone to watch and just a joy to work with on all levels, says Ms. Van Nostrand, who plays Agnes Keller, the reclusive author who does not want to publish any more books. What a smart, smart woman and a terrific writer. I love this character. I remember reading it before we did it in the New Works Festival, and the resonance that I feel with her. Part of it is being closer to the age of how this character is written now, and appreciating that: a full, three-dimensional, mature woman who has history, who is a survivor and who has real integrity. Someone who grows up surviving betrayal and abuse and alienation in the home and ongoing major passages, and creates her own way of protecting herself from all of it. The role also allows her to express her crankier side, she says, adding, I love that she has no filters when she speaks. She does not suffer fools. My secret inner curmudgeon has been given great liberty. She is glad to be paired up with Ms. Silliman again; the two played sisters in Gulfshore Playhouses production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Its wonderful for us, Ms. Van Nostrand says. You have friendships with colleagues that over the years you develop a shorthand of how you communicate feelings and ideas. Since doing the initial reading, we look at each other, and it fits like a glove, on both of us. Both hands have been fitted perfectly. It feels like that. We work well together. The parts feel very true. Ms. Silliman, who plays Agness sister Ramona, has a more personal take on the play. She sees it as being about love, family and forgiveness. I think forgiveness is a big issue with me, she says. It seems simple, but its not a very easy thing for people to do, and to move past what has happened and who people were in the past and not keep punishing them when they may have changed. She questions whether her character has loved her sister too well, as shes done so much for Agnes she almost enables her to live as a hermit. As we get older, with our siblings, we look back and say, why did I do that, why couldnt I have done better? Its a very real and identifiable thing for people, and is why people seem to relate to this play. In addition to the two sisters, the play includes three other people of varying ages: a man in his 40s, one in his 30s and a girl of 19. The roles are played by Hannah Mae Sturges, Alex Grubbs and James Lloyd Reynolds. Theres a lot of entertaining stuff in it, but its also very touching, too, she says. It touches on the effects of loss and grief and how that can spin you around. But its also very funny. Each character is trying to find a way to survive, she points out. Its funny, its touching, she says. Its about forgiveness and surviving. Sometimes we go kicking and screaming into our own enlightenment, or our own brave new existence, says Ms. Hiett. Thats why were all on the planet at the same time, to reach beyond ourselves and be reached, even when we arent expecting it. Theres redemption in that, not just hope. And the power of redemption, even after years and years, cannot be underestimated. We have to allow for that in our lives.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY these birds ARE ONLY in town until APRIL 15! Now open!Come meet these playful African Penguins before they leave town! At Naples Zoo now through April 15, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409 ARTS COMMENTARYThe elephant in the room is a rhinocerosThese are incredulous times. Were told one day that black is white, then informed the next that black has always been orange. Were told were not seeing what were seeing or hearing what were hearing and besides, it means something else entirely. So Ionescos Rhinoceros is perfect for what currently afflicts us: Its theater of the absurd for these absurd times. This almost-60-year-old play is not often produced lately, but Sarasotas Asolo Repertory Theatre is staging it through April 14. With Derek Prouses translation and two-time Tony Awardwinner Frank Galatis direction and adaptation, its a fresh take on a story that, sadly, resonates with our frightening times. The venue calls it a satire, a tragedy and a magical experiment for the mind. It demonstrates just how essential theater is, how it can speak to our minds as well as entertain. Mr. Galatis vision is both striking and surreal. And his streamlined version clocks in at just under 90 minutes, including intermission. Berenger (David Breitbarth, also a member of the Florida Repertory Theatre ensemble) is an Everyman living in a small French village. When we meet him, hes bedraggled, scruffy and hungover. He feels alienated from his life. He meets his friend Gene (Matt DeCaro) at a local caf one Sunday afternoon, complaining, I feel out of place in life, among people and, Life is an abnormal business. Gene is Berengers opposite: Hes a go-getter, full of energy and a snappy dresser as well. His baby-blue vest matches his socks and his pocket square. As the two friends converse, a rhinoceros runs through town. Then, shortly after, another. (Or, they debate, is it perhaps the same one running in a different direction?) Even though theres a story about the phenomenon in the local newspaper the next day, some refuse to believe the rhinos really happened. Botard (Brendon Dahlquist), a fastidious and odious coworker of Berengers, declares, I never believe journalists. Theyre all liars. They blow things out of proportion and make things up just to sell newspapers. Botard even rejects an eyewitness report. When she says there were others who also saw the rhinos, he suggests theyre just a bunch of undocumented freeloaders who are afraid of a little work. Soon, though, it becomes clear whats happening: The townspeople are turning into rhinos. Peggy Roeder plays a small but humorous role as Mrs. Boeuf, the daffy wife of one of Berengers co-workers. Her husband, she comes to realize, has turned into a rhinoceros. Daisy (Laura Rook), also one of Berengers co-workers, has seen the rhinos. Berenger has a crush on her, though he doesnt think he has a chance. Because she shows him little gestures of kindness, however, he continues to hope. Berenger stumbles through his life, trying to make sense of whats going on. Initially, he was complacent, unmoved. But now, as the town dissolves into chaos, hes growing more alarmed. He goes to visit his friend Gene. And in one of the plays best scenes, Gene slowly and believably transforms into a rhinoceros before our eyes. (Its interesting that instead of the French Jean, the play calls him Gene and Eugene, which was the playwrights first name. Mr. DeCaro the actor even looks like him. And to make things even more meta, Gene talks about Ionescos plays and asks Berenger if hes ever seen any of them a sly joke.) Matthew McGee deserves special mention for his dual roles as the caf owner and Berengers boss. In the former, hes a boa-waving chanteuse singing No Regrets in both French and English; in the latter, hes a no-nonsense boss in a navy pin-stripe suit. The creative staging involves minimal sets and paneled cloth drops that give a hint of the circus. (Scenic design by Robert Perdziola, who also does an amazing job with costume design.) As simple as it is, the style changes drastically as more chaos ensues. And the sound (Joe Cerqua) helps create the presence of the rhinoceros, even when we dont see them. They roar, they trumpet, they even sing. Their low, ominous rumbling permeates the theater, building suspense and a feeling of dread. Ionesco, who was Romanian and French, wrote Rhinoceros in response to seeing his friends become Nazis. The program book quotes an essay from Timothy Snyders book, On Tyranny, explaining: Ionescos aim was to help us see just how bizarre propaganda actually is, but how normal it seems to those who yield to it. By using the absurd image of the rhinoceros, Ionesco was trying to shock people into noticing the strangeness of what was actually happening. Rhinoceros questions whether we will follow the herd, or retain our own individuality. Mr. Breitbarth, as Berenger, is on stage virtually the entire time; hes affable, hes perplexed, hes trying to make sense of the confusion around him. We, as the audience, relate to him. We see the events through his eyes and his reactions. We root for him, for his own survival and for our own.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2018 C15 Introducing Florida WeeklysNews and analysis Interviews with newsmakers and reporters Arts and entertainment Everything you need for the upcoming week Listen at www.FloridaWeekly.comNEW PODCAST: THE WEEKLY 1380 COLONIAL BOULEVARD, FORT MYERS239.278.4422 www.BroadwayPalm.com SWFLS PREMIER DINNER THEATRENOW APR 7NOW APR 29 MAR 25 & 26THE OFF BROADWAY PALM CONCERT SERIES CONTRACT BRIDGELook before you leapBY STEVE BECKERAfter youve played bridge a while, you learn usually through bitter experience that reflex-action plays should be carefully avoided. There is no reward for speed in bridge, and long experience shows that its far better to think about what youre going to do before you actually do it. Consider this deal where West led a heart against three no trump. Declarer played low from dummy, taking Easts ten with the queen. Next he played a club to the king, but when East wisely held up his ace and also ducked the next club, South found himself in dire straits. He could establish the club suit if he wanted to, but since he had no subsequent entry to his hand, he was out of business and eventually finished down two. The sad part of the affair was that nothing could have stopped declarer from making nine tricks if he had played correctly. All he had to do to assure the contract was to play the ace of hearts from dummy at trick one, resisting the temptation to let the lead run to his hand. By doing so, he would have preserved the Q-J of hearts, one of which would provide him with an entry to his clubs later on. After taking the heart ace, declarer plays clubs until the ace is dislodged. Regardless of which defender wins the club, no return can prevent declarer from scoring four clubs, two diamonds, two hearts and a spade for a total of nine tricks. A heart return establishes an entry to the closed hand immediately, while a diamond return allows declarer to win in dummy and establish the heart entry himself. A spade return similarly causes no problem, since the 10-5-2 opposite dummys A-J-4 assure South that, no matter which defender wins the club and shifts to a spade, he has the necessary intermediate cards to assure the contract.

The action is merely adequate, and there are ample gaps of logic and reality. Its not even so bad its good, which makes it even worse. Rated PG-13.The Party (Kristen Scott-Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall) A seven-person dinner party goes awry when longheld secrets are exposed. The solid cast does what it can with the material, but theres too much going on in the scant 71-minute running time for any of it to register. Rated R. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyongo) King TChalla (Boseman), aka the Black Panther, must defend his country against Erik Killmonger (Jordan), who has a mysterious tie to TChallas past. The action is creative, the story is solid and its darn fun. Why cant all Hollywood blockbusters be like this? Rated PG-13. Peter Rabbit 1/2(Voices of Margot Robbie, James Corden, Daisy Ridley) Peter Rabbit (Corden) likes to steal food from poor old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), but Peter gets more than he bargained for when McGregors nephew (Domhnall Gleeson) moves into the house. Will children enjoy it, and will parents find it tolerable? The answer for both is: More than youd expect, but not as much as youd like. Based on the stories of Beatrix Potter. Rated PG. Happy End 1/2(Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz) In the northern French city of Calais, the Laurent family struggles with business and one another in writer/director Michael Hanekes (Amour) latest. Its intentionally confounding at times, but its also a fascinating look at the good and bad of life and the secrets we keep hidden. Rated R. 12 Strong 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Pena) The first Army Special Forces unit into Afghanistan after 9/11 must team with an Afghan warlord to take a Taliban stronghold. Its an admirable story worthy of appreciation, but its repetitive and not told in a dynamic way. Still, theres enough good here to be worthy of a moderate recommendation. Rated R.Hostiles (Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi) A Civil War veteran (Bale) who has spent his post-war life hunting Native Americans is forced to escort a Cheyenne chief from Colorado to Montana. The story is preachy and labors in spots, but Bales performance is so superb its worth the price of admission alone. Watch closely for his facial expressions and mannerisms truly tremendous acting. Rated R.

NoIf youre going to make a movie about terrorists hijacking an airplane in an effort to bring a country to its knees, it must above all be suspenseful. Days In Entebbe is not. Its rather dull, actually and inexplicably, given the talent, production value and story involved. Gregory Burkes script is based on the true story of a 1976 Air France flight that was hijacked by Palestinian terrorists while on its way to Tel Aviv. If director Jose Padilhas film is labored because of its faithfulness to true events, that is an unforgiveable mistake. Burke and Padilha are not making a documentary, meaning artistic license is expected in order to tell the story in an entertaining and engaging way. This film is neither. After hijacking the plane, two of the terrorists, Boni (Daniel Bruhl) and Brigitte (Rosamund Pike), turn out to be reasonably nice people as far as terrorists go, at least. We flash back to them six months before in Frankfurt, Germany, as they begin to plan the hijacking. They discuss their reasons for doing so, and we spend a lot of time (too much time) getting to know them. Theyre revolutionaries who believe in Palestine and feel that threatening the lives of the Israeli hostages is the best way to obtain their goals. They always render as human, and sometimes humane, rather than as monsters; at one point Brigitte lets a little girl go to the bathroom, and Boni lets a woman he believes is pregnant off the plane. Throughout the ordeal, they insist they dont want anyone to get hurt, and true to form, they do their best. As they wait with the 239 hostages at the airport in Entebbe, Uganda, and are assisted there by Idi Amin (Nonso Anozie), the terrorists are sure the Israeli government will contact them to negotiate the release of the hostages. But Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (Lior Ashkenazi) and Minister of Defense Shimon Peres (Eddie Marsan) take their time. They strategize and ultimately make a smart decision. And why not wait? On two occasions a busload of hostages are freed. This, combined with the kindness of Boni and Brigitte, provides the sense the hostages are not in grave danger, and in doing so it weakens the suspense. As viewers, we think its OK if the rescue plans dont work because the bad guys dont seem so bad. Padilha is trying to have it both ways by asking the audience to sympathize with both the hostages and some of the terrorists. It doesnt work. Not helping matters is an odd theatrical dance performance. Its supposed to metaphor whats happening in Entebbe, but it struggles. Add to this a weak musical score, muted performances from Bruhl and Pike and a story that just never gets going, and you have a movie most people will be happy to miss. One of my rules of criticism is to never recommend a movie that has an element of time in the title if it feels like it takes that amount of time to watch the film. Days In Entebbe feels like it takes seven days to watch it, so dont. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The commander of the rescue mission, Yoni Netanyahu, was the older brother of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.Did you know?

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | SPRING 2018 2 | our causes that enrich lives and sustain the quality of our future. They comprise an inventive giftmakers movement, a philanthropic twist on whats widely known as the maker movement. If youre like some of us, you may be wondering, what the heck is the maker movement? Think of it as an umbrella under which is gathered a culture of thinkers and doers driven by new ideas and new takes on existing ideas, all wrapped in solutions-based collaboration and collective action. The modern-day maker movement traces its roots to the computer industry. The Homebrew Computer Club in Silicon Valley, for instance, was a gang of electronics hobbyists and techie tinkerers in the 1970s that incubated an industry and launched an entire generation of entrepreneurs. It included Homebrew members and Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, who met through the club. Fast-forward to today, and gatherings of like-minded makers of everything from, literally, soup to nuts, extend from high school clubs to college campuses to local workshops and Maker Faires that draw over a million people a year worldwide. Our local movement of gift-makers, new-idea bakers and status-quo breakers resides at the intersection of entrepreneurial thinking and civic engagement, where the Southwest Florida Community Foundation helps philanthropy merge with community aspirations. Foundation President and CEO Sarah Owen says, Bringing people together and providing a virtual maker space to foster new opportunities that drive positive change is exciting. Philanthropists need the ability to share their vision and energy and take an active role in the impact they are having on the world.Inventive InvestingA new slant on a time-tested charitable-giving strategy underscores Richard and Vicki Pitbladdos activist philanthropy. Ardent community supporters, they collaborated with the foundation to establish a virtual $1 million liquidating endowment: the Pitbladdos maintain the investment, from which they have pledged minimum cumulative distributions to their foundation donor-advised fund. The full $1 million, plus net investment returns will be available for charitable distributions within a set number of years. Mrs. Pitbladdo says the couple has been inspired by the many ways the foundation can help them improve the effectiveness of their philanthropic activities. We are passionate about supporting nonprofit enterprises with leaders who are themselves passionate, dedicated and responsible, she says. The arrangement allows the Pitbladdos to remain hands-on with their investment and determine how the proceeds are allocated in the community from their donoradvised fund, which embodies the collaborative nature of the maker movement. Guy Emerich, a financial planning attorney with the Farr Law Firm, says foundation donor-advised funds represent a win-win philanthropic strategy.These types of funds are a terrific charitable-giving vehicle because the donors get to participate in what they want to see happen, and at the same time theyre able to help local efforts in very specific ways through the foundation, which knows the needs of the community.Scott White, president of Scott White Advisors, adds that foundation donoradvised funds are a great doorway into philanthropy. Its much simpler than setting up ones own private family foundation, he says. You can choose which organizations you want to support and decide to include other family members in the giving decision, or not. And you can witness what these organizations will do with your gifts before deciding if youll continue to support them in the future. Engaging side-by-side with the foundation was a key element in the Pitbladdos decision. Working with the foundation gives us more confidence that supported projects are vetted and measured for results, Mr. Pitbladdo says.A Virtual Back Office When it comes to gift-makers impassioned by a cause, establishing and running a nonprofit foundation to follow that passion can be a daunting obstacle from keeping up with shifting tax laws, to navigating a range of state and federal regulations and filings, to cultivating and convening a governing board and managing day-to-day operations. The foundation takes a collaborative tack on empowering such gift-makers, helping them overcome barriers by functioning as their virtual back office.This helped Robert Martin with his Bridge to a Cure initiative, which seeks to provide funding for the development of life-sustaining treatments for terminally ill children. Its a cause very close to Mr. Martin, who lost his 5-year-old granddaughter to brain cancer late last year. When a family learns theres really no hope, and youre going to lose your child or your grandchild, he says, you either withdraw or you rally and say weve got to try and do something about it. Bridge to a Cure is looking to advance the state of the primary approaches to cancer care surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Mr. Martins goal is to leverage the power of big data think IBMs Watson to crunch oncology knowledge bases and drive new treatment options that can extend patients lives, bridging the gap between the limitations of todays procedures and the futures potential cures. Calling on strategic business thinking gleaned from 30 years as a Fortune 500 company division president, Mr. Martin has identified the first step: compiling a comprehensive database of clinical trials, treatments and o utcomes, which he learned during his quest to help save his granddaughter doesnt exist. Such a repository of existing knowledge is necessary to inform the path forward to new options, says Mr. Martin, who is exploring public-interest advocacy firms that can help him frame FROM PAGE 1 VICKI PITBLADDO RICHARD PITBLADDO JERRY KING DALE REISSBringing people together and providing a virtual maker space to foster new opportunities that drive positive change is exciting.

To be able to tap into their infrastructure without incurring the expense and having to take all the time away from the core of what Im trying to do is invaluable.Strengthening CommunityAnother local initiative leveraging a foundation alliance is Impact Dunbar, which has been established to serve the needs of girls and young women in the Dunbar community. Karen Watson, executive director of Our Mothers Home; and TaSheekia Perry, the founder of Crowning Daughters for Success, co-founded the effort to inspire achievement by broadening girls and young womens exposure to a range of educational, social and personalempowerment resources. We want to help fund and encourage the Dunbar community by establishing the types of programs we saw existing outside of our community, Ms. Perry says. Ms. Watson says the fund, which is a component of the foundations Womens Legacy Fund, serves an unmet need. We want our girls and young women to be exposed to experiences they wouldnt have otherwise had, she says. How can you aspire to more if you havent been exposed to, or have the opportunities for, new experiences? The goal is to instill in those touched by Impact Dunbar the ability to see themselves succeeding beyond what they would otherwise see as limitations. Ms. Perry says, Were going to do that by providing them with the resources they need to develop healthy selfesteem, confidence and character. Ms. Watson, who grew up in the Dunbar community, adds, There have been many who have paved the way for me, and I feel I must do the same by giving back and lifting others.Contributions are being pooled in a multi-donor fund to collectively award grants to nonprofit organizations that advance the efforts mission, which is on the road to success: through the communitys support, Impact Dunbar is poised to award its first grant by the end of the year.The Gears of Change Scott Fischer has been building things for a long time. It started with motorcycles when he was 15, which the CEO of Scott Fischer Enterprises ultimately developed into a three-state network of topperforming Harley Davidson dealerships. And now that he has sold off a portion of his business, hes ready to build something else hes passionate about: increased capacity in Southwest Floridas nonprofit sector. His philanthropic work through Scott Fischer Enterprises has supported the community for years, including Blessings in a Backpack, the MDA, March of Dimes and Big Brother Big Sisters. That involvement has inspired him to establish a donor-advised fund at the foundation to enhance the impact of charitable organizations. One of the strengths of our company has always been strategic planning, he says. Thats such a key, and I think most nonprofits can benefit from the development of leadership skills that teach decision-makers how to be more strategic, so their organizations can be more effective. He believes business leaders can play a vital role in helping nonprofits better serve the community. Not just financially, he says, but by leveraging our resources, such as community outreach, marketing expertise and the customer bases weve built up.For Mr. Fischer, its all about analyzing the linked cylinders that make nonprofits go farther, faster: leadership skills, board development and strategic planning. Youve got to focus on the missioncritical aspects, he says. Nonprofits need to be as sharply focused on strategic leadership development as for-profit companies, but there arent always the resources to fund that. Enter Mr. Fisher, whose commitment to helping sustain a dynamic nonprofit sector springs from a debt he feels. I truly believe that if you prosper in a community that has supported you, its essential you return that support.Funding a Healthy FutureCommunity philanthropy helps pave the way to a vibrant and viable future, particularly in those areas of critical need that contribute to the health and well-being of all who call Southwest Florida home.Mental health has been prominent in the national conversation of late and is a particularly topical area of concern in Florida, which ranks 49th in funding per capita for mental health services. Recognizing the crucial need for this key resource in Southwest Florida, John and Kappy King took a leadership role, establishing a $1.1 million fund at the foundation to support Hope Clubhouse. The organization serves those struggling with mental illness, helping them recover and reintegrate into the community SEE GIFT MAKERS, 4 KAREN WATSON TASHEEKIA PERRYFischerWorking with the foundation gives us more confidence that supported projects are vetted and measured for results.

TaSheekia Perry,cofounder Impact Dunbar Fund Sarah OWENPresident & CEO Southwest Florida Community Foundation How Does the Magic Happen?I was a magicians assistant in college. I was sawed in half, pulled rabbits out of hats, and could make myself disappearall with the help of the magician. Yes, I know the secrets and no, I dont share them. There is a code about these kinds of things in the world of magic. Although, I do take each of my children out on his or her 18th birthdays and share what I know. But by that age and with technology at their fingertips they are not that impressed. After all, as the name implies I was always there to assist the real star of the show. They would probably much rather meet with the magician, as that is the person who creates the fascination of the unexpected. I play a similar role in the world of giving in Southwest Florida. As part of the team at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, I am merely an assistant to those who want to create something special in our communitiessomething magical that happens through giving. In this issue of Our Community you will meet some of those people. Creators and gift makers who take the resources they have at their fingertips and use them to conceive and design gift making that impacts others. They are professional advisors, donors, advocates and neighbors and they are changing the giving landscape of Southwest Florida. There are no tricks, illusion, or sleight of hand involved in gift making magic, just vision, generous hearts and a desire to make our world a better place. These are secrets and stories I am happy to share. OCIn Gratitude,

Mrs. King, who serves on the Clubhouse board, says, This is a passion of ours because weve been involved with those living with mental illness for many years, and we saw that it was desperately needed in our area. Roughly 250 people participate in activities annually at Hope Clubhouse, with up to 35 on site every day and a long waiting list for individuals and families seeking help. The Clubhouse provides a structured, work-ordered day, and members take up a variety of jobs in a supportive environment that fosters self-esteem and a sense of belonging as they focus on re-ordering their lives. We have an initiative for temporary employment, which is arranged by Clubhouse staff who visit area businesses that take on our members and help train them in a job skill thats specific to their business, Mrs. King says. Its a resource that can make a real difference in peoples lives. Other philanthropists out to make a real difference in the health of our region are Jerry King and Dale Reiss, who have established the Jerome L. King Scholarship Fund. The fund provides scholarships to students pursuing their Certified Nursing Assistant credential from the Fort Myers Technical College. Intended to help address our areas nursing shortage, the scholarships will jumpstart careers for students in the nursing field who otherwise might not be able to afford to go to school, denying them the chance to work in the healthcare industry, a key employment driver. I was aware of the shortages were facing, Mr. King says. After visiting the school, it became clear that their program could school certified nursing assistants at a time when hospitals and other facilities are struggling with staff shortages. It seemed like a natural fit. Ms. Reiss, who was taken by the students career-in-a-year opportunity, recognized the impact the scholarships could have. Those of us who have been blessed with the ability to help sometimes forget how relatively small amounts of money can have a tremendous impact on the lives of others who may not be so fortunate, says Ms. Reiss, who devised the idea of giving back to the community in honor of Mr. Kings 80th birthday. The couple says they hope the fund will change lives and give young people an opportunity. Is he aware that one of the nurses he helped school may take care of him one day? That was not my motivation, he says with a chuckle. But it certainly could happen. It would be an interesting coincidence.Living LegaciesWhen it comes to community philanthropy, whether through recent new strategies or in more traditional ways, Donna Baker has seen a lot change during her 67 years in Fort Myers. She has held a charitable gift annuity at the foundation since just after the turn of the 21st Century. It made sense in the wake of her husbands passing and has provided her reliable monthly income over the past nearly two decades, even during rocky economic times. When the downturn hit, it was an invaluable investment because I continued to receive that income, she says. Its still a great investment to this day. Mrs. Baker says her giving strategy with the foundation is a decision she would make again, not only because it has provided her a steady income stream, but because it allowed her to give back to a community she cares so deeply about. Mr. White, the certified financial planner, points out that caring about a cause is often a key element when it comes to charitable giving. Its rarely about tax planning in the end, he says. It often starts out that tax planning may have been an incentive, but there always should be a passion the donor has toward a cause. Such a cause made all the difference to Mrs. Baker. I wouldnt trade being able to do something for my community for anything, she says. Im very pleased I was able to give back, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good investment with people who care so much about our community. Im proud to be a part of it. Being a part of something bigger. Thats what the maker movement is all about: a collective force for a future that unfolds one tomorrow at a time. And its our giftmakers impact today that helps ensure our regions tomorrows are full of promise, because their philanthropic strategies may differ, but the one thing theyre all making together? A difference. OCFROM PAGE 3 GUY EMERICH DONNA BAKERI was aware of the shortages were facing ...

COLLECTORS CORNER Does this Candlewick rarity make me a basket case? scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Grandma was so proud of the mayonnaise set her Aunt Addie had given her. It was an antique, she said, and it matched the newer Imperial Candlewick glass shed begun collecting as she prepared to get married. Aunt Addies bowl and its liner plate were beautiful. But they were straight out of the 1937 Candlewick catalog. Aunt Addie was elderly, so Grandma merely had assumed they were vintage. The histories of our treasures have a way of evolving, but that doesnt change how utterly pretty Imperials beaded Candlewick line remains more than 80 years after Grandma received her pieces. The Bellaire, Ohio, company produced the line from the mid-1930s into the 1980s. Experts on Imperial Glass say the company has drawn inspiration from a French pattern called Boule, or ball. The name itself was inspired by candlewick, the knot embroidery that was enjoying a renaissance at the time. Either way, Grandma never got around to creating a full set of the glassware. I think there were a half-dozen or so 7-inch cake plates, some handled bowls, a heart-shaped dish, that mayonnaise set, a tray or two, and a couple of cream pitchers and sugar bowls all the better for use on the bridge table. When my sister was married in 1990, Grandma asked me to watch for plates to fill out the set for her. I duly bought a stack of four 8-inch plates, assuming they were the same size as Grandmas 7-inch plates. She sent me back to buy four more for my sister, and that started me on a collection of my own. Since that time, Ive bought and sold hundreds of pieces of Candlewick. And though I have moved on to finer glassware collectors constantly try to upgrade I still love the pattern and I treasure my 3800-series Candlewick goblets in ruby its a rare color made only for a couple of years in the late 1930s. Its a great pattern thats fine enough to use on a formal table, but simple enough to use for everyday. And it reminds me of Grandma each time I see it. Who could ask for anything more?

The Skinny: You see lots of bowls and plates and nappies in Candlewick, but you almost never see baskets, except for a few small bonbon servers. At 12 inches across, this basket is huge. Its perfect as a table centerpiece. Cant you see it filled with flowers or eggs for Easter? I had to carry it across the street by its handle, lest I risked dropping it thats a no-no in the collecting world but the basket appears none the worse for my mishandling it. I think it will be right at home with the ruby goblets, the large heart-shaped salad bowls and other rarities in my collection. THE FIND:Candlewick glass basket SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis large Candlewick pattern basket, made by the Imperial Glass Co. of Bellaire, Ohio, dates from the 1940s or s. It measures 12 inches across and stands about 8 inches high.

Dylan famously brought on the future members of the Band originally known as the Hawks to be his backing band on his 1965 and 1966 tours on which he plugged in and went electric with some of his show, a move that sparked loud objections from some fans of his solo acoustic folk music. In 1967, Dylan and the Band began an extended writing and recording session that produced a legendary set of music that eventually emerged in 1975 on The Basement Tapes double album and a 2014 six-CD box set documenting more than 100 songs committed to tape during that time. Dylan and the Band then reunited in 1974 for an extensive tour that produced the live album Before the Flood. The Steep Canyon Rangers had been a band for some nine years and had released five albums when they met Martin and were selected by the comedian/banjo player to be his backing band on a tour to promote Martins bluegrass album, the 2009 release The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo. A decade later, the collaboration is still going strong, with the Steep Canyon Rangers having done several tours with Martin and played on two more Martin albums the latest of which is last years The Long-Awaited Album. Several members of the Rangers also played on Love Has Come for You, the album Martin and Edie Brickell released in 2013. Looking back, mandolin player Mike Guggino said, the timing to start working with Martin was ideal for his group. The Steep Canyon Rangers which also includes guitarist/singer Woody Platt, banjo player/singer Graham Sharp, fiddle player Nicky Sanders, drummer Mike Ashworth and new bassist Barrett Smith (replacing Charles Humphrey III) was established enough in the bluegrass world to be seen as a viable band on its own, but still in a place where an association with a big name like Martin would help them grow their audience. And it did not deflect too much attention away from band members own careers. I think if we had met him years later, it might not have been a good idea, Guggino said. But I think we met him just at the right time, when we were popular enough and good enough to be able to do the gig and bring something to the table, but not so popular and whatever that it would have been a bad choice to not do our stuff. And it really did help boost our career, for sure. It put us in front of a larger audience. He got us on TV and big-time radio stations and really got our name out there.

As the years have gone on and theyve done more projects with Martin, the partnership has only deepened and Guggino said both the Rangers and Martin have brought talents to the table that have benefited both parties artistically. On The Long-Awaited Album, Sharp and Humphrey III each have cowriting credits on a song, and the entire band was heavily involved in arranging the songs. I think the Rangers had as much to do with the arrangements, if not more, than Steve on every song, Guggino said. And thats whats so cool. He (Martin) trusts us. He trusts our ears and our taste, and we work together very well, and we come up with arrangements for these songs. Its a great collaboration that way. I think our style and our aesthetic is aligned even more than it was when we started. So, its really like a band now. Of course, the Steep Canyon Rangers also continue to make albums and do its own shows between touring and recording commitments with Martin. The group has just released its 10th studio album, Out in the Open, and is spending this winter and spring playing a mix of its own headlining dates and shows in which it serves as backing band for Martin and fellow comedian/ actor/singer Martin Short, who together bring a mix of comedy and music to the stage in these shows. For Out in the Open, the group worked with a noted producer who isnt from the bluegrass world and has worked with a stylistically diverse range of music acts Joe Henry. Going into the recording, Henry proposed a recording approach that is rarely used these days. He wanted the Steep Canyon Rangers to record completely live including the vocals with no overdubbing. Guggino said the band knew that could be a challenge. Youve got to get every solo, every little backup lick, every harmony vocal, and you all have to do it at the same time, and if somebody messes up, the whole take is gone, he explained. But it turned out to be an effective way to record the songs. You know, it wasnt as hard as we thought it was going to be, and the reason is we play together all the time, Guggino said. Were such a live band, a touring band, were always touring. We tour all year round We know each other so well and our tendencies and how we all think its going to feel, how we kind of push and pull together and it works. It makes sense. We even stood like we do on the stage. Thats how we stood around the microphones. The idea behind recording live, Guggino said, was to capture the fire, energy and emotion the Steep Canyon Rangers bring to concerts. And he thinks Out in the Open is a very authentic representation of the group as a result. What also helps Out in the Open is that the bands songwriting is strong throughout the dozen songs. The album continues the Steep Canyon Rangers move toward a broader acoustic sound that while rooted in bluegrass, draws from other genres. Highly melodic tunes like the easygoing Farmers and Pharaohs and Roadside Anthems are as much pop and Americana as any other genre. The title song, a deliberately paced, harmonica-spiced track, leans old-time country, while the lovely ballads Going Midwest and Best of Me have a timeless country sound. And even songs that have a good bit of bluegrass (Let Me Out of This Town and Love Harder) have richer melodies than one might expect in that genre. Guggino said the band is so pleased with Out in the Open that it is playing the entire album during headlining shows. This is the first album that I think weve ever released where we play every single song from the record in the show, which is pretty cool, Guggino said. I think that has a lot to do with the way we recorded the record. The rest of the headlining set, Guggino said, is weighted strongly toward songs from the previous couple of albums (2015s Radio and 2013s Tell the Ones I Love), with only an occasional older song sprinkled into the set. Our style has changed so much over the last few years, kind of evolved to where it is now, we just want to play more of the newer stuff that sounds like that than the older stuff that doesnt have that same kind of vibe going on, Guggino said.

Her search leads her to encompass more than the Reform Judaism that is her home territory. She questions authorities from other worship traditions within the Jewish family. She visits a variety of temples and synagogues that contrast not only in worship style, but in many other ways as well: size, prominence, formality, secular setting (major urban center, suburb, etc.). Although she crisscrosses the country to touch as many bases as she can, by necessity the book remains a bit New York-centric. The authors quest brings a payoff that might not have been expected. Yes, she gains insight and appreciation for Judaisms individual holy days and rituals, especially the most holy of all: the Sabbath. Beyond this, however, she comes to feel the genius of the sacramental and liturgical Jewish year as an overarching structure both in time and beyond time. There is a rhythm to the changing emotional seasons of grief and joy, defeat and victory, scarcity and plentitude. During this experimental year, she realizes more strongly than ever that the hold and power of the holidays depends upon ones preparation and intention. Helping Ms. Pogrebin and her readers are quotations from rabbis that she has met or read along her journey. These quotations are selected to underscore key issues connected with the holidays and the ways in which the calendar structures Jewish life. Some of introduce a theme or a chapter, while others simply arise when they are needed to lend clarity and authority. Other useful tools are the special appendices: A Jewish Year in Bullet Points, a list of rabbis and other authorities interviewed as part of the authors research, a bibliography and a glossary. Throughout her travels, inquiries and meditations, Ms. Pogrebin continues to underscore her experiences as a Jewish child and woman, as wife and mother and as an accomplished professional and an unsatisfied seeker. These are parts of the tapestry. Now one of its threads the thread of her Jewish selfhood and spirituality is a much more prominent part of the design. This remarkable book accomplishes its ends with great vitality and generous, inspiring openness.A note on the authorAbigail Pogrebin worked for Mike Wallace at CBS as a producer on Minutes. Her other books are Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk About Being Jewish and One and the Same: My Life as an Identical Twin. Her work appears in such periodicals as Newsweek, New York magazine, The Daily Beast, the Forward and Tablet. REVIEWFrom page 3 Help celebrate local librariesThe Collier County Public Library is celebrating a year of milestones and, along with the Friends of the Library of Collier County, invites the public to join the celebration at three locations on Saturday, March 24. The festivities begin with coffee and light snacks from 9-10:30 a.m. Naples Regional Library, 650 Central Ave., where patrons will be able to view a display of vintage photos of Naples in the days before it became a destination city. Enjoy cake and other refreshments from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Headquarters Library, 2385 Orange Blossom Drive. Nashville guitarist Richard Smith, who is in town for a concert Saturday evening at The Norris Center (see story on page C1), will entertain. South Regional Library on Lely Cultural Parkway continues the celebration from 1-3 p.m. with refreshments, music, cooking demonstrations, history lessons and even a bit of comedy and magic. All programs and activities are designed to commemorate several milestones in the library system. It was 85 years ago, in 1932, that the Women Club of Collier County established the city of Naples first lending reading room and lending library. In January 1957, a group of civicminded Neapolitans came together in what was loosely called Friends of the Library of Collier County. With the goal of creating a free public library, the Friends made a presentation to the Collier County Commission, which agreed to lease space for a library from the Womens Club, which in turn donated its book collection to the cause. A bookmobile was purchased in 1958, and service continued through 1981. In 1963, a Naples resident donated the land from First Avenue South to Central Avenue and between Sixth Street and Seventh Street to Friends of the Library for library purposes. The grand opening of Naples Regional Library was celebrated in February 1966. In the years since then, the Collier County library system has grown to more than 200,000 library card patrons and more than 2,500,000 online visitors per year. The system offers access to more than 500,000 physical and virtual items in its 10 branch locations. Free programs offered year round include story hour and playtime for children of all ages to Ted Talks and book discussions, film screenings, games, tai chi and chair yoga sessions and live music and theater performances.

When he discovered Mr. Corso was going to record an album, Mr. Smith invited him to do so at his Tunesmith Studio in Goodlettsville, Tenn., near Nashville. Mr. Smiths reach on the Nashville music scene is deep, and while he contributed to some of the tracks on Mr. Corsos newly released Full Throttle, he also snagged some other great musicians for the album. Fingerpickers tend to stick together, Mr. Smith said. In Nashville we have access to a heck of a lot of musicians, and we had a lot of fun doing that for the album. The English-born Mr. Smith started learning guitar at 5 years old when the music of Chet Atkins caught his attention. By the age of 11, he had revealed himself to be a child prodigy and his idol invited him to play with his at Her Majestys Theatre in London. He subsequently formed The Richard Smith Guitar Trio with his brothers, Sam and Rob, but relocated to Nashville in 1999 when his married cellist Julie Adams, with whom he frequently performs. In Music City, he founded the jam band Hot Club of Nashville and his Tunesmith Studio. Mr. Smiths signature style, which features both fingerpicking and flatpicking, has gained him recognition from such guitar titans as Tommy Emmanuel, Doyle Dykes and many others. In 2009, he was inducted into the National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame in 2009. Mr. Corso is fill of admiration and respect for his friend and fellow musician. When I play my stuff, he can follow along and make it a hundred times better, he said about Mr. Smith. Thats probably not going to happen when I try to jump in him, he added. Hes really that good To have musicians of that caliber coming to this area is a real gift. Local musicologist Dick Spottswood, an expert in historical vernacular music, thinks Mr. Corso, who often plays house concerts and library gigs around Naples, should be so modest. Tommy Emmanuel, hes the guy that people claim is the best guitarist in the world and I think hes an astonishing technician but I would rather hear Frank because he has a little more soul to his playing, Mr. Spottswood said. Best known locally as an accomplished landscape painter, Mr. Corso started studying guitar at about 13 years old, the same time he started pursuing visual arts as well. Influenced by the folk music scene in Greenwich Village at the time Bob Dylan was making his rounds, he eventually focused on the fingerstyle guitar exhibited by the likes of Robert Johnson, Blind Blake and Reverend Gary Davis and others. A lot of people know me as a visual artist and not as a musical artist, and vice versa, he said. Mr. Spottswood, who has catalogued and been responsible for the reissue of many thousands of recordings of vernacular music in the United States, said Mr. Corsos skill in visual arts translates to his artistic expression on the guitar. He has a gift with color and clarity and moody introspection in his pictures, and theres something very evocative in his art that translates into the music, he said. Hes not a great singer not does he try to be; the style demands more sincerity than technique when you sing. If youre playing guitar simply and beautifully, youve really done the job. Frank has that gift. He really invests his music with depth and meaning. Mr. Spottswood called the upcoming concert a collaboration based on a lot of mutual respect. Both guitarists are very active performers, but both eschew bars, the typical haunt of blues musicians. The Norris Center is an intimate venue where audience members can steep themselves in the musical stylings of the two guitar masters. Their Norris Center gig promises to be a guitar players concert.

S VP r eq ui re d fo r th is c om pl im en ta ry s em i 3 6 inar dures RS SVP r eq uired for this com pl imenta ry semi AP broadcasters name WGCU FM Florida Station of the Year WGCU FM has been named Radio Station of the Year for 2017 by the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters in the groups annual awards competition. The Station of the Year award reflects excellence in overall news coverage and the newsrooms service to the community through news and volunteerism. For purposes of the award, Florida radio stations are divided into two categories, designating larger and smaller markets. WGCU FMs award is in the smaller market category. Having watched our news team at work, firsthand, for an entire week during Hurricane Irma, Im not surprised by this well-deserved recognition by their peers, said WGCU Public Media General Manager Rick Johnson. They are the most hardworking, professional, committed and talented a staff as Ive ever had the pleasure of working with. Kudos to each and every one of them. I couldnt be prouder of our news team, said Interim News Director Julie Glenn. They dont do this for accolades or recognition, but when it happens, its a nice reminder that what were doing matters. Staying on the air throughout Hurricane Irma was the galvanizing force that made this team recognize the individual talents we possess, and that mutual respect brought out the best not just during a time of crisis but throughout the year. In addition to the overall station award, WGCU FM reporters are either firstor second-place winners in six of the eight news categories for radio reporting in 2017. I am thrilled to be working with such a stellar crew, said WGCU Associate General Manager for Content Amy Shumaker. We will work hard to continue serving our community in a way that is worthy of these honors. Ms. Shumaker joined WGCU in February. She previously was executive producer of national programming for the South Carolina Educational Television network. Winners of the individual awards will be announced at the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters Awards ceremony on Saturday, April 14, at the Wyndham Resort, 8001 International Drive, Orlando. NBC News correspondent Jeff Rossen will be keynote speaker. Opening speaker is Al Letson, host of Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting. Reveal airs on WGCU FM on Sundays at 3 p.m. It is also available as a podcast.

They met through their respective professions in the health care industry. In fact, Joe had built one of the foremost consulting firms in the U.S., after his previous stint as the CEO of the state of Arizona and the chair of the U.S. Medicaid committee. Anyway, neither of them suspected that their lives would lead them to producing high quality Pinot Noir, and to a love for Southwest Florida. Lets take the second item first. Marys brother Frank is the archbishop of the Venice diocese, responsible for Catholic church activities and charities from Sarasota to Marco Island. That means that Joe and Mary spend a good deal of time in the area and contribute generously to charitable causes. In February, they participated in and donated to the Naples Winter Wine Festival, offering support to the myriad of charitable causes supported by the event. The wines are another story. While many of todays winery owners get born into it, because winemaking can be very much a family business, people like Joe and Mary get seduced. We started visiting California wine country in 2002, Joe recollects. We loved it, and went pretty crazy over Pinot Noir. He sold his health care management company in 2007, and the couple finally had the resources to actually buy a vineyard. I bought 15 acres of Pinot Noir and Zinfandel vines near Santa Rosa, he says. Then, the DeLoach vineyards came on the market in 2005 and I couldnt resist. The problem was, Anderson knew absolutely nothing about winemaking, so he hired winemaker Mike Sullivan from premium winery Hartford Court in January 2006. Then we had to find a name, he remembers. We came up with Benovia. Its a combination of his fathers first name Ben and his mothers maiden name, Novian. Joes passion for Pinot Noir (known as the heartbreak grape because its so difficult to grow) led him to uproot some of the vineyards and replant them with more efficient spacing and higher quality clones. Then he discovered that vineyards are like potato chips and cats. You cant have just one. That led us to buy 12 acres in the Sonoma Coast appellation, Joe recalls. Different soil. Cooler climate. Perfect for a few other Pinot clones. Still seduced, he bought the 40-acre horse ranch next to that vineyard. While Joe and his winemaker were cultivating tons of acres of grapes, they had no winery, and working in a custom crush facility was becoming too inconvenient. So they built one in August 2015, which now produces about 6,000 cases a year. They offer three Chardonnays and six Pinot Noirs. Mary and I love Pinot, Joe says, because it so profoundly reflects the places where its grown. And were very careful of the way we produce our wines. Theres no shortcut to quality. He says his career in the wine world has been a heck of a run. Its hard to disagree. Presented for your enjoyment our latest discoveries and surprises. Benovia La Pommeraie Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2015 ($48) Concentrated aromas and flavors on the nose and palate, with pronounced citrus and white floral notes, sweet orange peel, cream and a long mineral-tasting finish. WW 94. Benovia Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2015 ($48) Partially aged in new French oak, this lushly textured Pinot Noir offers a nose of strawberry and spice, followed by flavors of red cherry, raspberry and mixed black fruit. The tannins are a bit pronounced, so this one needs a little time in the cellar. WW 92. Benovia Zinfandel Sonoma County 2015 ($43) Winemaker Mike Smith kept this Zin in the barrel for a bit, achieving rich aromas of blackberry and spice. Full bodied and fruit forward, the blackberry and raspberry notes are up front on the palate. More restrained and elegant than typical California Zins. WW 93-94.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: What is a meritage wine? Brett L., New YorkA: Meritage is a U.S. designation for red wines made with the traditional blend used in Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. However, it is a kind of a brand, trademarked by the Meritage Association, which was formed in 1988. Only paying members of the association may use the term on their labels.

CHEF Q & ACatching up with 1500 Souths William Conroy BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comHailing from New Jersey with credentials that extend to the Five-Star, FiveDiamond Little Nell Hotel in Aspen and the Four-Star, Four-Diamond Skytop Lodge in Pennsylv ania, Chef William Conroy is the new executive chef at 1500 South. Hes shaking things up at the Naples Bay Resorts signature dining spot. Q: Tell us about your culinary background A: My mom was the one who got me my first kitchen job because of a family friend. I started as a dishwasher at the Frogtown Inn in Pennsylv ania when I was 12 and got involved in the daily tasks as well as doing the pantry station for service. I learned more skills in the kitchen before moving on to The Pine Knob Inn, where a Culinary Institute of America graduate took me under his wings and taught me how to be a hot line cook. From there, I moved onto The Homestead Inn, where I came to the realization that a culinary career was for me. My father took me to see different culinary schools, and I eventually studied at the CIA, which instilled the culinary fundamentals that make me the chef I am today. Q: What inspired you to become a chef? A: I would have to say it was because of the experience I got on an internship out in Vail, Colo. After graduating from the CIA, I packed up my little Ford Ranger with what I could fit and off I went back out to Colorado to work for The Little Nell in Aspen, which just received another James Beard nomination for its outstanding wine program. During my time there, I earned my chops working under some of the best chefs that I could have worked for at a young age. Q: While working as a sous chef at Homestead Inn in Pennsylv ania, you were discovered when you had to cover for its executive chef and a local food writer picked up the story. How much did that experience propel you further into your career? A: It showed me that I could do whatever I put my mind to. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: While being in the industry for as long as I have, I traveled a lot to get as much experience as I could at my young age at the time. I got an offer from the Naples Bay Resort to become their executive chef for all dining operations. How could anyone pass up an opportunity to live and work in the beautiful Sunshine State? I have lived in five states throughout my career, but this is the first tropical location, and here we are. Q: Youve worked in luxury restaurants out West and have made quite a cultural shift to serving Southwest Florida diners. What kind of culinary research goes into discovering which dishes and styles a new customer base enjoys? A: I do a lot of dining in local restaurants. Q: The menu at 1500 South has undergone a revamp since you took over. What changes have you made, and how did you choose what would stay and what would go? A: I had looked into what had sold before the revamp took place and based my decisions on that as well as a lot of trial and error. I was inspired by dishes I used in my past experiences as well. I wanted to make sure it was a family hotel oriented menu with some of my own culinary surprises and that it stayed in the price market of the area. Q: The restaurant was closed for a period of time after Hurricane Irma, after which you took over the kitchen. Can you tell us what it the process of reopening was like? A: It started with some long days and nights of cleaning because the restaurant was without power for a week. I learned a lot about how the humidity works down here in Southwest Florida for sure. After the cleanup, we had to get all new staff trained and making sure everything and everyone was ready for season, ending in more trial and error. Q: Tell us some new things diners will find at the restaurant. A: I put some of the Chef Conroy touch to the menu as well as the overall experience. I want our guests to have an adventure while dining with us and then they can go and tell everyone they know about my restaurant and my staff. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: I would have to say my pan-seared snapper with a coconut rice and Key lime sauce is a nice dish here in Florida. My pan-seared chicken dish with an apple cider and farro salad is pretty nice, too. Q: What do you find challenging about your job? A: The paperwork. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: Cooking at the Aspen Food and Wine Festival side-by-side with some amazing chefs such as Iron Chef Morimoto and Chef Jean-Georges. Working with Chef Enrique Olvera at the Naples Winter Wine Festival was also a great experience. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: Recently it has been Netflix, although I have used many cooking books and studied Thomas Kellers work. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: My parents stood behind me and gave up so much to put me through college and then both passed shortly after I graduated from the CIA. With that being said, I am so blessed to have them watching over me that I push hard everyday to make them proud from heaven.
