A2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYRemembranceIt boils down to this: Memory consists of what you saw. Take one step off the edge of that platform and youre standing in a cemetery called history what other people saw and recorded and what others yet concluded about it. History is a grave marker, an epitaph. Memory is alive. The terrible adventure of World War I, therefore, is now for all purposes lost to memory. World War I is history. But every breath we take still trembles with the inhalations of 6 million murdered European Jews and at least 23 million other civilians killed by genocide or in military action on the planet in World War II. Total military deaths from all causes number 21 million to 25 million, according to government and historic estimates; 407,300 were Americans. The victims are not yet lost to memory, not yet consigned only to history. Most of the murdered Jews died between 1940 and 1945; roughly half were Polish. And they died in terrible pain from bullets, fire, gas, ropes, privation and disease. But even as victims they still have a life among us, because we remember them. A few of our neighbors and fellow countrymen knew them and talked to them in some cases watched them die because they were with them when they died. We can still speak to those who were there, who saw. Several will share their memories Thursday, April 19, at The Laboratory Theater on Woodford Avenue, in downtown Fort Myers (www.laboratorytheaterflorida.com). Following an 8 p.m. performance of the Jeff Baron play, Visiting Mr. Green (an old conservative New York Jew has strong opinions about stopping Nazis), they will take questions from the crowd: a survivor himself, a retired medical doctor who was a Hitler Youth member, a rabbi and a liberator. Let me describe just one of the many camps in Europe where Jews were violently murdered by Germans: Auschwitz. The German army had seized half of Poland in a single month in 1939. The country itself is about 80 percent the size of Texas. Auschwitz is located in south central Poland only 303 miles from Berlin, 334 miles from Prague, 520 miles from Munich, 621 miles from Rome, and 750 miles from Paris (a few miles farther that the distance from Miami to Atlanta). In those German and European cities and many others, people frequently ignored or even helped deport Jews to Auschwitz and places like it during the war. As they did elsewhere, at Auschwitz the Germans began shooting civilians. But ultimately that took an emotional toll on the executioners they sought to avoid, so they began looking for other, more efficient methods of killing. In 1940, the Germans converted old barracks at Auschwitz to prisoner quarters, began shipping the prisoners in by train from Germany and across Europe, and eventually began creating additional buildings airtight designed as gas chambers. The next year, 1941, they began systematically killing Jews with a cyanide-based gas called ZyklonB. Men, women and children were marched into those chambers, frequently forced to raise their arms above their heads so they could pack more people inside, and made to stand in fear until their executioners poured pellets of ZyklonB through ports in the ceiling. When the pellets hit air, they became gas. Victims died not by going to sleep and becoming comatose, but in terrible agony over periods as long as 15 or more minutes, witnesses have said. As they suffocated, they clutched each other in desperation and panic. Their blood vessels ruptured under their skins. They bled from the ears, foamed at the mouth and died twitching or jerking in spasms that only gradually subsided. One wonders if mothers and fathers had the presence of mind and courage to kill their own children quickly, seeking to spare them agony. None can say. With the trains running efficiently and the ZyklonB system working as they designed it, the Germans killed about 6,000 people each day at Auschwitz mostly Jews, but also Roma (gypsies), homosexuals, resistors, religious opponents and prisoners of war.Auschwitz as a general term includes several nearby locations Auschwitz IIBirkenau, which served both as a slave labor camp and an extermination camp with efficiently built gas chambers and Auschwitz 3. Between May 1940 and May 1945 when the Germans surrendered to the Allies, 1.1 million people died at Auschwitz alone.Many victims whose last sight was the inside of a chamber would live among us today, if Hitler had been stopped earlier. Theyd be old now, children born in the 1920s or or early s. For all practical purposes they lived in our world, a world with electricity and indoor plumbing; with radio and telephone; with books, journals and daily newspapers. They would have understood us because theirs was the beginning of our culture, with its computers and cell phones and social media. You know those people, and so do I: vibrant children with missing teeth and big smiles; hard-working parents who loved them; kindly old folks who put those kids on their knees. They were beautiful young women and men who could have fallen in love, shared sex, work, friendship and lives, and made a million new worlds of healthy babies and hope. But they were killed in an organized, cattle-herd slaughter, a genocide, by German Nazis and fellow Europeans. We will offer this simple plea or prayer, therefore: Let us remember them while we still can. Let us celebrate their lives by knowing their tragic history. And let us share that history with our children, always.

After all, for his entire political career, hes been in bed with the special business interests who resist any and all government efforts to protect against their ravaging of the environment. In Oklahoma, as a state senator, then attorney general, and now the Trump administrations Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Pruitt has been a stalwart opponent of any regulation that would get in the way of the energy companies that have been his patrons. They and their extremist advocates have rewarded his efforts on their behalf handsomely. Now that he has brought their boughtand-paid-for agenda to Washington, he has turned the EPA into the Environmental Punishment Agency. He has been dismantling clean-planet rules left and right, and is dogmatically ignoring climate change science as he represents big business in pushing President Donald Trumps anti-regulation agenda. Hes also been living large, or trying to. His ridiculously cheap living arrangement at a lobbyist-owned apartment within spitting distance of the Capitol has been exposed by media reports, so he violated scoundrel rule No. 1 which, of course, is dont get caught. He was charged $50 a night, far, far below market rate in D.C., but even with all the industry largesse, hes gotten greedy. And clumsy. In fact, Pruitt is quickly becoming legendary, even by Washingtons dreary standards. His insistence on spending $40,000-plus of taxpayer money to construct a soundproof telephone room at his agency for his use was just one embarrassment. Until the drumbeat of criticism got too loud, he insisted on flying first class. EPA policy requires economy seating, with permission granted for an upgrade in exceptional circumstances. Pruitt has adopted a policy of avoiding any but the friendliest, churning out interviews with the likes of Fox News and the right-wing Washington Times. However, even the Fox News interview was awkward, with correspondent Ed Henry asking tougher questions than he expected. He fumbled them, plain and simple. Looking bad on TV is the original sin in the Gospel According to Donald Trump. So down at Casa Blanca, el presidente is trying to determine whether all the bad publicity is enough to add Scott Pruitt to the list of those he must replace. On the one hand, Pruitt has been shamelessly effective at gutting environment-saving regulations at the EPA. That pleases POTUS, who insists he has full confidence in Pruitt. But is that the Don Trump Kiss of Death? The indicators are becoming familiar. The president and maybe Chief of Staff John Kelly assure the unfortunate one that they have his back. At the same time, Sarah Huckabee Sanders or another White House-designated knife-wielder makes it clear that they possibly mean that his back is there to stab. So here was Sanders, making sure reporters knew: Were reviewing the situation. When we have had a chance to have a deeper dive on it, well let you know the outcomes of that. Scott Pruitt may be the next to take the dive ... with concrete. If hes smart, even while he struggles to stay on, hell be making sure all those wealthy special interests are there when he leaves power, so he can cash in his chits. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Mark Zuckerbergs insufferable tripeOnce again, Mark Zuckerberg is sorry. The founder of Facebook, who has apologized for privacy breaches throughout much of his companys existence, is back at it, on a much larger stage than ever before. The proximate cause is the Cambridge Analytica controversy. In violation of Facebooks rules, the Trumplinked political consultancy schemed to get access to the data of 87 million users. This has made Facebook a scapegoat for President Donald Trumps victory on par with the Russians and James Comey (at least before the FBI director got fired and became a Trump adversary). Its not Zuckerbergs fault that he has suddenly been deemed on the wrong side of history, but the Cambridge Analytica blowup is bringing a useful spotlight on the most sanctimoniously selfregarding large company in America. Facebook cant bear to admit that it has garnered the largest collection of data known to man to sell ads against and line the pockets of its founder and investors. The problem isnt that Mark Zuckerberg is a businessman, and an exceptionally gifted one, but that he pretends to have stumbled out of the lyrics of John Lennons song Imagine. To listen to him, Facebook is all about connectivity and openness he just happens to have made roughly $63 billion as the T-shirt-wearing champion of the global community, whatever that means. Its this pose that makes him and other Facebook officials sound so shifty. In a rocky interview with Savannah Guthrie of the Today show, Sheryl Sandberg was asked what product Facebook sells. Were selling the opportunity to connect with people, she said, before catching herself, but its not for sale. Something or other must be for sale, or Facebook is the first company to rocket to the top ranks of corporate America based on having no product or profit motive. Guthrie, persisting, stated that Facebook sweeps up data for the use of advertisers. Sandberg objected: We are not sweeping data. People are inputting data. Uh, yeah. Thats the genius of it. In a reported exchange with a friend while he was a student at Harvard, Zuckerberg boasted of having data on thousands of students because people just submitted it. Zuckerberg has now managed the same trick on a global scale. On the one hand, Facebook has indeed made efforts to protect the data of its users, knowing that it cant risk a fundamental breach of trust. On the other, Zuckerberg has repeatedly said hes sorry for offenses against his users privacy because his business model contradicts his selfrighteous public posture. Its possible to imagine something like Facebook run as a nonprofit service for the global commons. Thats not what Zuckerberg chose to do to. To his credit, he created a compelling nay, for some people, addicting product and made a killing for the ages. Perhaps the public pressure will force the social network to give its customers even more control over the use of their data. At a minimum, it will have achieved something if it gets Facebook to give up the saccharine one-world rhetoric about its mission and admit the bottom line is as important to it as any other profit-making company.

David Sims, Partner, Chair Florida Bar Board Certied in Marital and Family Law GUEST OPINIONRecent tax changes present new opportunities for impactful giving BY EDWARD WOLLMANWith the recent changes to the tax code, Collier County philanthropists are taking advantage of new tax-favorable charitable opportunities to create real impact right here in our community. With certain limitations being lifted, and other tax deductions expanded, donors have the ability to make keen financial decisions while simultaneously giving back to the community. I refer to this as philanthropic estate planning. By partnering with charitable foundations that have deep roots in the community, people can create taxfavorable plans while contributing to causes that align with their personal values. With the passing of the new tax law, it is critical to understand how your charitable giving is affected and how you can make sure your donations create tangible o utcomes. By thoughtfully choosing where donations go, you can ensure long lasting impact on the community. Thankfully there is good news for charitable-minded donors. The opportunities are now more prevalent for making a significant tax-favored gift to support your favorite charitable organizations. Our firm, Wollman, Gehrke & Associates, is proud to partner with the Community Foundation of Collier County, which represents exactly what we are speaking of with its mission to be a philanthropic partner and facilitator in addressing community issues. So how does the tax change affect charitable organizations like the Community Foundation of Collier County? The story is business as usual. For most individual taxpayers who make substantial gifts to charity, the tax picture will most likely be very positive. A few notable changes include: The Pease limitations, which limited the income tax benefits for donating to charity, have been eliminated. Additionally, there is an increase in the ability to donate cash (as opposed to other assets) and write off more on your income tax return in the current year. And finally, the amount that you can pass to your heirs gift and estate tax-free has doubled. This will provide a great deal more assets in the control of the charitably inclined taxpayer who wants to control the destiny of their social capital. The new tax changes also create new opportunities for charitable donors. Some of these changes allow for more creative approaches including bunching of deductions, cash gifts and tax-exempt investments and planned giving. Here is an example of how the bunching technique works: In early 2018 you make your charitable donations for 2018. In late 2018 you make your 2019 anticipated charitable contributions to your donor-advised fund at the Community Foundation. In 2019, you advise the foundation that you wish to make the distributions to your favorite charities. This would result in the bunching of deductions in 2018 and the use of the Standard Deduction in 2019. Your CPA should be engaged to run projections. If you wish to take advantage of the higher allowable adjusted gross income limitation for cash contributions to charity (now 60 percent of your AGI vs. 50 percent), you can seek to lower your AGI with your tax-exempt portfolio investments and then give away 60 percent of your AGI to reduce your tax on your taxable income from your taxable portfolio. Based on the higher gift and estate tax exemption and the repeal of the Pease limitations on the use of itemized deductions, this is a great time to set up a planned gift, including a Charitable Remainder Trust, a Charitable Lead Trust, a Charitable Gift Annuity or a Pooled Income Fund, just to name a few. The combination of the income tax savings and the gift and estate tax savings can be very powerful. The good news is that we can utilize these new opportunities to come together as a community and create a culture of long-term sustainable charitable giving. As always, before proceeding with any of these advantageous opportunities, it is necessary to run pro forma tax returns to see how the actual activity will play out in your actual situation. Please seek the advice of competent tax counsel. Edward Wollman of Wollman, Gehrke & Associates, P.A., is a member of the Community Foundation of Collier Countys Professional Advisor Committee. He wrote this column on behalf of the foundation. WOLLMAN

off throughout the night. The Y and the Naples Auto Donation Center provide an older-model car for the raffle every year. Grads have come here every year for the last 32 years to enjoy Project Graduation, and we are thrilled to host them once again, said Carly Gibb, YMCA mission advancement director. Our priority is to keep them safe and sober while they enjoy their big night. The 2018 Project Graduation T-shirt was designed by Olivia Clubley, a student at Naples High. The shirts will serve as the new graduates ticket for admission to the party. Ms. Clubley received a $250 award from the Y for her winning artwork that was selected from more than three dozen entries by students from several high schools. Project Graduation T-shirts/tickets go on sale for $20 in the main office at every high school in Collier County starting in early May. On graduation night, all Project Graduation partiers will be picked up by school bus at Barron Collier High School and taken to the Y. Students cannot drive themselves or be dropped off at the Y. Of course, it takes lots of adult volunteers and donations from individuals and local businesses to pull off something like Project Graduation year after year.

It is important for parents, teens and party hosts to understand the laws in order to keep everyone safe. Some parents host after-prom parties where alcohol is provided, thinking that they can better protect teens by supervising their drinking and by keeping them from driving drunk. Deputies warn parents and guardians that they will be held responsible if any underage drinking occurs on their property and they could be subject to criminal and civil sanctions. Establishments that sell alcohol are reminded to ask patrons for ID. Underage sales and purchases could result in criminal prosecution. CCSO offers these tips to help parents and guardians keep teens safe during prom: Communicate with your teens regularly and openly about alcohol and drugs. Communicate with other parents about your expectations and theirs. Discuss your expectations and rules for prom and graduation outings. Know who will be driving and what your teens plans are. Make sure your teen has a cell phone. Establish times on prom night for your teen to call and check in with you. Remind your teen not to use alcohol or drugs, or ride in a vehicle with anyone under the influence. Never provide alcohol or drugs to your teen or others. Remind your teen to buckle up when riding in a vehicle. Get involved by volunteering to help at prom events. Dont rent a hotel room for teens. Stay up until your teen gets home. Regular and open communication between parents and teens can make a difference in preventing drunken driving, drug use, DUI accidents and other destructive behavior and not just at prom time. Its never too early to give your teens the information and tools they need to stay safe. And you can never do it too often. Olivier Dumel won the drawing for the car at Project Graduation 2017.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYof the best examples is the number of remote air fields Florida had at the end of World War II. Decades of expansion have erased many of these, but ones like Buckingham Airfield east of Fort Myers have endured to become the perfect place to hold autocross events. Established in 1942, the army airfield trained 50,000 gunners to defend bombers before closing in 1945. Since then it has quietly grown into a small airplane community, a hub for controlling the mosquito population, and the home of the Gulfcoast Autocrossers. Autocross is a competition event where performance cars can legally be used to the fullest. These events traditionally need an open space of tarmac where courses can be laid out with something as simple (and forgiving) as plastic cones. Traditionally everything is welcomed from daily drivers to performance machines just legal enough to earn a license plate. They are divided into competitive categories, and everyone races the same course for the fastest time. Autocross is one of the most economic ways to do high-performance driving, according to Mike Lawson, driver, instructor and member at Gulfcoast Autocrossers. Mr. Lawson is quite competitive with a Scion FR-S. Its a rear-wheel drive coupe that can be picked up for well under $30K at a dealership today, and its already ready for competition this weekend. After initial preparation, a local racer might only need a set of tires annually and suspension component semiannually. So, the investment in maintenance can be as low as $1,000 per year. But there is another side. Im a poster child for excess, says Gulfcoast Autocrossers president Craig Ellis. He has a race-repaired 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and that doesnt even guarantee dominance. Ive spent a quarter-million, and I can still get beat by a nearly stock Miata. Mr. Ellis is not mismanaging his funds. Its just more of a point about autocross events autocross uses tight turning courses where a car with quick acceleration can be more competitive than one built for all-out speed. So, while Mr. Ellis enhanced Corvette can assert its dominance on longer road courses, its Buckingham lap times may never compare to something more commuterfriendly. In fact, the prime racing upgrade to any car arguably cant be found on a parts shelf. The best modification in autocrossing is the driver, says Mr. Lawson. It takes an investment in time to learn from other experts and practice on a racecourse to really be competitive. Gulfcoast is one of the few autocross organizations that also runs a school for novices. People like Mr. Ellis and Mr. Lawson take drivers in their own vehicles and help them understand what a sports car really can do. Those who get bit by the racing bug during the Saturday learning sessions are the ones likely to pay $30 to hit the track on Sunday for the full event. There is plenty more racing to be enjoyed across South Florida, which has led to an active chapter of the Sports Car Club of America. This is a sanctioning body and educational hub for people who want to drive full-speed on professional racecourses and/or want to move closer to professional competition. For those who are more into grand touring than competing with their vehicles, South Florida also accommodates. The annual Florida Car Marathon takes place later this month. Its a precision rally, which rewards participants for accurately holding a sustained reasonable average speed rather than highperformance driving. Thus, it provides the excitement of competition without needing to break legal speeds. During its 500-mile run, the Florida Car Marathon will hit hotspots like the Sebring International Raceway. But no matter if its part of a driving event or just on a Sunday solo cruise, any enthusiast driving through south central Florida should make this stop. Sebring is home to a 12-hour endurance race every spring that is one of the most famous in the world. This sevendecade tradition is where professional teams and ambitious amateurs are given half a day to prove their mettle. This is the long-standing testbed for the latest in road course racing, said Jonathan Brownfield, a South Florida autocrosser, writer, Sebring attendee and all-around car-crazy enthusiast. Theres a palpable excitement as past legends are connected through continuing to push the limits of competition and endurance. Even those who cant make it to the 12 hours of Sebring can participate in some weekend SCCA and club events. And there is a ton of respect for any vehicle that spends time on this hallowed racing ground. Heck, even just an official coffee mug from the welcome center will get respectful nods from fellow enthusiasts. Sebring is South Floridas most famous raceway, but its far from the only track. There is everything from amateurs running their quarter-mile drag racers at Palm Beach International Raceway, to the NASCAR season closer at Homestead-Miami Speedway. While Gulfcoast is unique with its autocross school, many of these raceways will also have a driving school for those interested in learning how to properly get on the track. But Floridas automotive culture doesnt have to be highly organized or expensive to enjoy. Anyone who doesnt want to be a part of a planned event can find pleasure in a lazy Sunday on the Tamiami Trail or get adventitious finding new back roads across our state. Even those who dont want to go far can appreciate a local event in their affordable classic cars and/or just enjoy being a spectator. One of the easiest car shows to find today is Cars & Coffee. While this tradition started out in California, the car-crazy lifestyle of Florida means that most major cities have someone organizing one locally. What keeps the event popular is its unpretentious spirit. A brand new 755 horsepower Corvette ZR1 can be parked next to a hodgepodge Volkswagen Beetle both sharing the common thread of automotive passion. The entire soul of Cars & Coffee is about being without airs and exceptionally affordable. There are plenty of similar events around South Florida using this name, but its not born from an official franchise. Cars & Coffee is just held together by automotive camaraderie.

But the good news is, even if the local one is getting greedy, theres likely a proper Cars & Coffee right down the road. When it comes to some of the best automotive events, snowbird season also often means car show season. So, while they might clog up the roads, some of this added traffic includes choice machines. Both the east coast and west coast of Florida have a terrific premium example of a winter event featuring one of the worlds most celebrated brands. Every January the Cavallino Classic showcases multi-million-dollar classic Ferraris on the pristine lawns of The Breakers of Palm Beach. For those who cant afford the exclusive ticket, or just want to see these supercars live up to their reputation, there is an alternative. There are track events at PBIR held the week before the show that remind us that these concours-level prancing horses still burn high-octane. While the Cavallino thrives on exclusivity, Cars on Fifth is a Naples February tradition that is one of the most accessible events around. In fact, although its held by the local chapter of the Ferrari Club of America, the charity gathering has grown rapidly to invite everything from Jaguars to American muscle cars. By April weve just concluded most of the major winter events. Its time now to plan ahead for next years shows like the Boca Raton Concours dElegance, Wheels Across the Pond (British car show in Jupiter,) Naples Motorfest, and many other worthwhile gatherings. There are even new events being organized like the first-ever Gasparilla Concours dElegance in Tampa next year. The same weather and wealth that enrich shows in the winter also attract the car auctions. The Mecum Kissimmee sale every January has grown into a two-week event. There are so many cars filling the fairgrounds (over 3,000 in 2018) that enthusiasts can treat this more like a car show than an auction. And for those interested in buying, the massive number of vehicles needed to sustain a sale of this size also means there are plenty of affordable classics. Other major South Florida auctions also follow this feeling of providing something for everyone. The BarrettJackson Palm Beach sale has become an April tradition that feels like a mini fair with food vendors, trinkets and cars under four big top tents. And while there are plenty of new and vintage exotic machines, there are also sensible cars that sell for under $5,000. Of course, there are some great museums for those who really want to see the best cars. The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum is home to a world-class showing of Packards. Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda lives up to its name with some of the best American big power machines around. The Elliott Museum in Stuart has a unique glass showcase that can bring cars closers to visitors with just the touch of a display screen. The best of them all is The Revs Institute. The Collier family has been at the bedrock of American Racing, and Miles Colliers collection is a worldclass affair that is housed in Naples. It celebrates the art of the automobile, and theres a full wing devoted to Porsche (including a few cars that the company would love to have back in in their corporate holdings.) Plus, this is the largest collection of the racecars that Briggs Cunningham built in West Palm Beach to take on the world.The Revs Institute has spent many years as a private collection. But their mission to educate and preserve the classic car culture has led them to re-opened to the public. Viewing times are limited and tickets must be purchased in advance. In the end, South Florida is a strong and varied car culture thats concentrated onto a small peninsula. We are the home to professional racing teams, track day amateurs, retired CEOs with $1 million prototypes and teenagers with muscle car aspirations. And its our inviting car culture that gives every one of these people a place to go, a place to see and a place to be seen.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Hit the road for RV showThe Florida RV Trade Association holds the 23rd annual gulf coast RV extravaganza Friday-Sunday, April 20-22, at the Lee County Sports Complex/Hammond Stadium in South Fort Myers. Seven dealers will display an array of new, used and leftover recreation vehicles of all styles, brands and price ranges, from luxurious diesel motorhomes to travel trailers, fifth wheels, park models, van campers and pop-up campers. Several RV suppliers will also have booths. With the economy strong and retiring baby boomers showing a keen interest in seeing the country, the RV industry is booming, says Tom Wegge, president of Region One of the state trade association. Financing for dealer inventory and qualified buyers has become easier, resulting in a market that has seen RV sales for both new and used merchandise soar, he adds. The national Recreation Vehicle Industry Association reports that February 2018 RV wholesale shipments were the best ever, with a monthly total of 43,038 units shipped. This represents a 9.2 percent rise over the February 2017 total. Year-todate wholesale shipments are at 85,479, up 16 percent compared to this time last year. Statistics continue to show that vacationing in an RV is less expensive than many other travel options, even when a purchase is factored in, Mr. Wegge adds. Coupled with the overall reduction in fuel costs, an RV vacation is a bargain. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days. Admission is free. For more information, go to www.frvta.org/ shows. US OPEN Pickleball Championships are back for third yearThe Minto US OPEN Pickleball Championships Powered by Margaritaville return to East Naples Community Park for the third year April 21-28. The international tournament, the biggest in the sports history, is set to break last years records and with plenty of room to spare. In 2016, the inaugural Minto US OPEN Pickleball Championships exceeded organizers expectations, with more than 800 athletes coming from 39 states and seven countries. Last years event had a sellout field of 1,200 athletes, drawing from even more countries and more states. This years tournament sold out in all registration categories in only three hours, something no other racquet or paddle sport and few other sports of any kind can claim. More than 2,000 players from 17 countries and 47 states are registered, and another 200 are on a waitlist, according to event founder Terri Graham. Ms. Graham and Chris Evon are the founders of the Naples-based Spirit Promotions, which organizes the Minto US OPEN Pickleball Championships. The company consults with tennis clubs and park districts about adding pickleball courts and programming to their operations, and it also runs the US OPEN Pickleball Academy, which produces skill clinics, lesson packages and multi-day destination camps. This years competition includes singles, doubles and mixed doubles play in a variety of skill and age groups. Here are some tournament fun facts: The youngest registered player is 10, and one is 91 years of age. The player traveling the greatest distance is coming from Mumbai, India a distance of 8,750 miles. Last year was the first time Simone Jardim (who runs the local academy) and Jennifer Dawson each won three individual titles: Ms. Jardim in Womens Pro Singles, Womens Pro Doubles and Mixed Pro Doubles; and Ms. Dawson in Womens Senior Pro Singles, Womens Senior Pro Doubles and Mixed Senior Pro Doubles. Will they repeat their triple crown performances this year? The event will be covered by CBS Sports Network and live streamed on CBS Sports Live from April 25-28. And its an economic boom for Collier County, bringing in approximately 11,000 spectators and 1,300 participants and making an economic impact of $4.9 million in 2017. Played on a court with a solid paddle, pickleball uses skills from tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Although it has gained a tremendous following among all age groups, its strongest growth area is players age 50 and up, who are moving to the sport from tennis because pickleball offers the chance to use similar skills on a smaller court and with less wear and tear on joints. At East Naples Community Park, 48 pickleball courts surround the Zing Zang Championship Court, where the high-visibility matches will be played. In addition to Minto Communities and its Margaritaville brand, more than 30 sponsors are behind the third annual event. Among them are Dicks Sporting Goods, Ilovepickles.org, Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix, Pickleball Central, California Sports Surfaces-DecoTurf, Headsweats, Germain Toyota of Naples and the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & Visitors Bureau.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELCarmakers, dealers will likely find a way around tariffsThe world of automobiles feels like its in trouble or at least its looking like its getting more expensive. With additional taxes looming on steel, foreign cars or even ones built elsewhere in North America, theres a sense we are on a collision course with hard times. But will it ever really reach the consumer level? Tariffs are supposed to encourage guiding products into desired channels but in the case of automobiles, the industry is so adaptive we might never fully feel the pinch of changing production costs. One of the most interesting stories of how vehicles get around a problem starts with poultry. The 1963 Chicken Tax added a hefty 25 percent tariff to small commercial vehicles and trucks imported to the U.S. This was in response to new duties imposed on U.S. chicken exports by (West) Germany. It instantly rendered the small Volkswagen pickups non-competitive on our shores. There was just no way for VW to get them into the U.S. and still be profitable. However, as the tax stayed in effect, it created a hole in the compact truck market. Companies like Toyota and Datsun specialize in these small vehicles. They succeeded where Volkswagen couldnt. In the 1970s they got around the Chicken Tax by importing the assembled truck without beds. This reduced the duty if they stamped and bolted the rear steel in the U.S. Manufacturers are still getting around the Chicken Tax in modern times. In fact, while this was initially intended to protect U.S. companies, Ford is one of the most recent to work through a loophole. For many years, its small Transit Connect cargo van would arrive from Turkey classified as a passenger vehicle because of rear windows and back seats. The extra metal, glass and fabric were promptly removed and the van was then sent to dealerships as a commercial vehicle. It was deemed cheaper for them to instantly recycle large and costly components rather than pay the high tax. This longstanding roadblock verifies a point. If it gets too expensive to manufacture cars in the U.S. with imported steel, and even if its too expensive to import fully assembled vehicles, the automobile manufacturers will find a way. They have proven they can drive a truckload of new cars through any small loophole. If tariffs are imposed and extra costs incurred, it will certainly be a problem for the automobile producers. But with the right presentation, consumers might not feel it as much. Rarely do people walk into a dealership anymore and pay for a car in-full. Financing is one of the more lucrative sides of the car business. It has been pushed by car companies, banks and dealerships for long enough that people view a car purchase in payments instead of total price. Its also one of the reasons why leasing is more popular than ever. The willingness to take on more personal debt is rarely seen as a smart move, but right now that is exactly the trend in automobile purchases. If a vehicle becomes more expensive to produce, it can be passed on to buyers with more payments instead of higher ones. Thus, while its not financially healthy, some consumers might not feel the pinch of more expensive cars. Their monthly payment hasnt changed the time is just now extended. Even selling a car has changed. The internet allows easy price shopping on a nationwide level, and this has caused dealers to dive deeper into other profit centers. While there is less money to be made in new cars today, theyve become a larger catalyst for finance and long-term service. In fact, a dealers service department has always been a profit center, but now that department often works even closer with sales. Theres potential for a large profit in a major service. However, if a customer isnt going to invest in their old car, the dealership is also ready to show how one overhaul bill covers a few months of payments on a new vehicle. So even in a world of higher tariffs, the car companies find loopholes, the consumers (on the whole) just want the right monthly payment, and the dealers are always ready to finance. Its not an ideal situation, but it also is not a recipe for a massive upheaval. This column is not taking a side on trade policy or promoting a political agenda. After all, everything from environmental concerns to ridesharing can upset the industry, too. And exploiting loopholes and more financing are not something to encourage. This is just a small sample to highlight it takes more than trends and taxes to divert automobiles out of our hands. Tougher times might be immediately ahead, but theres over a century of history that tells us that cars find a way to survive. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com In the 1970s, Toyota and Datsun got around a high tax imposed on Germany by importing small VW trucks without the beds, then adding them in the U.S.

As they approached, they smelled marijuana, and during the ensuing search, passenger Kennecia Posey, 26, was shocked shocked! when police found two bags in her purse: one containing marijuana, the other cocaine. WPLG TV reported that Posey admitted the marijuana was hers, but told officers: I dont know anything about any cocaine. Its a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse. Posey was charged with felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.Questionable judgmentOn March 20, the U.S. Marine Corps fired Navy Cpt. Loften Thornton, serving as a chaplain for the Marine Forces Reserve in New Orleans, after Thornton was captured on video having sex with a woman on the street in front of the Crown & Anchor Pub, according to USA Today. Marine Reserve spokesman Lt. Col. Ted Wong said only that Thornton had been fired for loss of trust and confidence. According to the Navys strategic plan for religious ministry, chaplains provide a source of comfort and refuge to service members, which Thornton had apparently extended to members of the general public.Dangerous foodSome people dont like ham. When Beverly Burrough Harrison, 62, received a gift of ham from her family on Feb. 12, she waited until they left, then set it on fire and threw it in a trash can at the Bomar Inn in Athens, Ala., where she was living. As smoke filled the room, AL.com reported, Harrison took her dog and left without alerting anyone to the fire. As a result, she was spared from being a victim of the ham bomb that blew out the front wall of the room when a can of butane fuel was ignited. Harrison was held at the Limestone County Jail on a felony arson charge and could face life in prison if convicted.Failure to communicateThings went from bad to worse for soccer player Sanchez Watt during a match in Hertfordshire, England, on March 6. Awarded a yellow card, Watt was asked his name by referee Dean Hulme, who mistook Watt for What. As Watt repeated his name over and over, the referee became perturbed and changed the yellow card to red for dissent, BBC Sport reported. Hulme rescinded the card when someone explained the mixup. I think everybody found it amusing afterwards, including the referee, said team chairman Dave Boggins. He was very apologetic.Our weird addictionOn March 6, Royal Canadian Mounted Police participating in an awareness campaign set up several large electronic signs in North Vancouver, British Columbia, that warned drivers: POLICE AHEAD STAY OFF YOUR PHONE. Despite that, within just two hours, officers ticketed 89 drivers, 74 of them for distracted driving, which results in a $368 fine, plus a $175 penalty payment on a first offense. It is evident there is still more education and enforcement needed to make our roads safer, remarked Cpl. Richard De Jong to CTV News.DisappointingOrganizers of the Big Cheese Festival in Brighton, England, on March 3 were forced to offer refunds to patrons after the event failed on several levels: 1. The festival ran out of cheese. 2. The promised craft beer was Bud Light and Stella Artois. 3. The wet weather prompted some to call the event #BigMudFestival and prevented some cheese-mongers and entertainment acts from making it to the site. Sadly, due to this, a few compromises had to be made, festival organizers said. The BBC reported the festival has offered half-price tickets to next years event for anyone who bought a ticket this year.Unclear on the concept Jonathan Rivera, 25, of Hartford, Conn., dutifully appeared in Hartford Superior Court March 7 to answer charges of stealing a car on Feb. 17. While he waited his turn, the Hartford Courant reported, parking authority agents outside the courthouse spotted a 2014 Subaru Legacy with license plates that had been reported as stolen. The car itself had also been stolen from Newington, Conn. Police waited for the driver to return and arrested Rivera as he started to drive away in the Subaru. He was charged with seconddegree larceny and taking a car without the owners permission. Redneck chroniclesLast September, a celebration at a recreational lake in Wichita, Kan., caught the eye of someone who reported seeing people dressed in Muslim garb with an American flag desecrated with ISIS symbols, reported The Kansas City Star. Shortly thereafter, Munir Zanial, an engineer for Spirit Aerosystems, was notified by Facebook that authorities were seeking information about his account, and soon a call came from the FBI, saying it had determined that the flag reported to them was a Malaysian flag and its investigation would be closed. Zanial, a Muslim from Malaysia, had rented the lake to celebrate a Muslim holiday with friends and commemorate the 60th anniversary of Malaysias independence. In March, Zanial filed a discrimination lawsuit in U.S. District Court after he was barred from renting the lake again.

Unlike a lot of 15-year-olds, however, she also loves sharing clothes, especially with younger girls whose closets arent overflowing with the latest fashions. Last summer Ms. Thornhill founded Big Sisters Closet, a nonprofit with the purpose of providing gently used clothing to girls in need at Parkside Elementary School in Naples. Shes been collecting donations since last summer and is now ready to share them during her organizations inaugural shopping event. The popup shopping spree is set for Wednesday, May 23. Parkside girls in fifth grade will be the shoppers and their purchases will be free much like hand-me-downs would be from a big sister. I think every girl should have a fun shopping experience, Ms. Thornhill says. The Naples High School sophomore got the idea for Big Sisters Closet in a newsletter from her mothers high school in Texas, where a student was doing something similar. I thought Naples could benefit from something like it, she says. Naples is often seen as a very affluent city, but many families here are struggling financially and dont have the option of buying brand-new clothes for their daughters. Plus, she says, Being a girl with an obsession for clothing, I know how an outfit can boost your confidence. She also knows some of the insecurities fifth-grade girls in particular have about what theyll wear on the first day of middle school. Ms. Thornhill continues to welcome donations of lightly worn clothing in girls sizes 8-14, especially, but also in womens sizes small to large. She also welcomes like-minded teens who want to be part of Big Sisters Closet. Volunteers are needed to collect clothes and/or help sort them before the shopping event as also to help set up and run the store on May 23. For more information, visit www.bigsistersnaples.com, email Ms. Thornhill at firstname.lastname@example.org, call her at 227-3496 or follow Big Sisters Closet Naples FL on Facebook and on Instagram at big.sisterscloset.

Help Stamp Out Hunger before you leave town for the summer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYSix days a week, 52 weeks a year, rain or shine, local letter carriers deliver everything from bills and birthday cards to catalogs and coupons. But on the second Saturday of May, postal workers in Collier Country will deliver something more as they go along their routes: hope in the form of food for those in need. Saturday, May 12, marks the National Association of Letter Carriers 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger, the nations largest single-day food drive, when postal customers are asked to leave donations of non-perishable pantry items for their carriers to pick up. In Collier County, these food donations are delivered to Collier Harvest Foundation, which has partnered with the NALC since the food drive began. The drive occurs just as Southwest Floridas seasonal residents leave; its success is critical to the efforts of feeding those less fortunate in our area throughout the summer, especially students from low-income families that rely on breakfast and lunch provided by Collier County Public Schools during the academic year. (CCPS reports serving on average 21,369 free or reduced meals a day). In addition, many families will see reduced or eliminated work hours in industries that provide seasonal services, further straining already stretched budgets. Stamp Out Hunger donations are sorted, boxed and stored at the Collier Harvest warehouse for distribution to dozens of local agencies, such as Providence House, Youth Haven, Collier Senior Resources, NAMI and other nonprofit organizations and churches. The goal is to collect enough food to see these agencies through the summer, as well as have enough food to aid in the event of a hurricane or other disaster. Letter carriers last year collected 263,000 pounds of food donated by their customers. I cant tell you how much this helps us. We feed many, many people every day, and this helps us tremendously, chef Amy Peters at the David Lawrence Center says. Stamp Out Hunger is a community-wide event in which resident can participate on many levels: Seasonal residents who are leaving before the May 12 collection day are encouraged to take their unopened, non-perishable items to the closest postal branch or give them to their mail carrier. Businesses, schools and other organizations can collect food ahead of the drive to increase the donation total. On the day of the food drive, volunteers are needed to help unload, sort and box food at the Collier Harvest warehouse. The busiest time of day is from 3-7 p.m. as the carriers finish their routes; volunteers are asked to commit to two-hour shifts. Its an amazing day filled with community spirit as individuals, youth groups, businesses and civic organizations come together to help feed those less fortunate who live right here in Collier County, says Connie Preu, Collier Harvest executive director. We typically have up to 200 volunteers, working shifts, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. We have pizza, refreshments and even live music to keep everyone motivated while they work. Its a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community. To sign up to volunteer for Stamp Out Hunger or for information about other volunteer opportunities at Collier Harvest, call 455-3663 or visit www. collierharvest.org.

Celebrities who flocked to the fourday auction included Jimmy De Martini, fiddler with the Zac Brown Band, as well as Hollywood icon Burt Reynolds, who greeted fans, signed autographs and encouraged bidding on the block for three Pontiac Trans Ams. Other celebrity guests included actor Alfie Wise, North Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, NASCAR legend Rick Hendrick and former NFL wide receiver Reggie Wayne.

This years auction also attracted more than 700 new bidders, a new record for Palm Beach. In addition, there was an impressive showing from the international community, including vehicle consignments from Brazil and Italy. Our guests have made the Palm Beach Auction such an electrifying event year after year, said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. We were especially honored to be trusted to auction three incredible collections, including the Cars of Dreams owned by our good friends Jeanette and John Staluppi. Their 145 vehicles, which all sold at No Reserve, represented some of the finest examples of s, s and 0s-era American cars. It was a pleasure working alongside John and Jeanette to find new homes for the vehicles in his remarkable collection, and we so appreciate their philanthropic support of our charity efforts over the years.

Offer Expires 4/26/18 Mother panther, kittens saved, released into wildA female panther and her two kittens are back in the wild, after spending months in captivity. On April 10, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission panther team released the panther family on the Picayune Strand State Forest in Collier County. This is the first time the FWC has rescued, rehabilitated and released a family group of panthers. FWC biologists rescued the adult female panther, known as FP224, in December 2017 after she was struck by a vehicle on Collier Boulevardin Naples. They took her to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida in Naples where veterinarians determined she had a broken hind leg. Following a successful surgery to repair the fracture, the FWC Panther veterinarian took the panther to White Oak Conservation Foundation for rehabilitation. In June, FP224 produced a litter of one female and two male kittens, and biologists suspected these kittens were near where their mother was injured. They set up cameras to locate the young panthers, and two of the kittens were photographed and captured immediately thereafter. Unfortunately, biologists were not able to capture the third kitten. Biologists brought the two male kittens to White Oak Conservation Foundation. They were not immediately returned to their mother so that her leg had time to heal. Last month, the family was reunited in a one-acre pen to maintain the family bond. On April 9, veterinarians determined that all three felines were healthy and ready for release. Typically, orphaned kittens still dependent on their mothers need to be kept in captivity until they can survive on their own, said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader However in this case, the mother can continue to raise her kittens, teaching them the required survival and social skills they would not receive in captivity. FP224 is not new to the rescue and rehabilitation efforts of the FWC and partners. In 2013, she was struck by a vehicle and had to be rescued. In the years between the two accidents she has produced three litters of kittens, successfully contributing to the Florida panther population. Florida residents can support conservation efforts like the rescue and rehabilitation of injured or orphaned panthers by purchasing a Protect the Panther license plate. Fees from license plate sales are the primary funding source for the FWCs research and management of Florida panthers. People can also help with panther research by reporting panther sightings and uploading photos and videos to the FWC at MyFWC.com/PantherSightings. To report dead or injured panthers, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone. For more information on Florida panthers, go to MyFWC.com/Panther.

Predicting the potential for chronic pain could help in battle against opioid abuse THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAAs health-care providers and policymakers look for ways to address opioid misuse, knowing who might be at risk for developing chronic pain could be an important tool for prevention. A new University of Florida study has pinpointed patient characteristics associated with long-term musculoskeletal pain. Researchers say the information could help physical therapists and other clinicians identify at-risk patients and better tailor treatments to control their pain and potentially limit prescription of opioid medications for pain. The UF scientists found that patients who had greater initial pain, a higher number of other health problems, additional symptoms from other body systems and more pain-related psychological distress were more likely to continue to have pain one year after treatment. The findings appear in the newest edition of the journal Physical Therapy. Musculoskeletal pain is very common and one of the leading causes of disability, said Jason Beneciuk, Ph.D., D.P.T., M.P.H., a research assistant professor in the department of physical therapy in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. Being able to predict who will develop long-standing musculoskeletal pain will allow for better use of nonpharmacological treatment options, such as physical therapy.The UF study was designed to test the capability of a variety of screening tools for predicting persistent pain. The study included more than 400 patients receiving physical therapy for low back, neck, knee or shoulder pain at nine health care centers across the country.Assessments included a measure of pain intensity, a history of previous medical diagnoses and two newly developed screening tools created by a UF pain research team. One asked patients to report symptoms they were experiencing in other systems of the body, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, nervous, pulmonary and musculoskeletal. The second tool screened for pain-related psychological issues, including depressive symptoms, fear, anxiety and pain catastrophizing, which is characterized by beliefs that pain will worsen or nothing can be done to stop it. They also screened for positive emotions, such as self-efficacy and pain acceptance. Patients completed the screening tools before treatment and four weeks, six months and one year later. The number of physical therapy treatments patients received varied, but averaged eight to 10 sessions over four to six weeks. Treatment was not standardized across patients. At the one-year mark, 36 percent of patients were still experiencing persistent musculoskeletal pain. These patients had higher levels of pain at baseline, a greater number of other health problems and more pain-related psychological distress. The long-term pain predictors were the same across patients being treated for low back, neck, knee and shoulder pain. Our next step is to determine how these screening tools can be used to help clinicians determine initial treatment pathways, said Mr. Beneciuk, who is interim director of the Brooks-PHHP Research Collaboration at Brooks Rehabilitation. Although it is too early in the research to offer treatment recommendations for high-risk patients, future recommendations could potentially include increased monitoring, structuring treatment to take into account multiple health conditions and/or teaching patients pain coping skills, Beneciuk said.In the United States, we are embarking on an era in health care where nonpharmacological alternatives are being recommended as the primary treatment options for common musculoskeletal pain conditions, he said. This is a real opportunity for physical therapy and other non-pharmacological treatments to help prevent patients from transitioning to chronic pain. In addition to Mr. Beneciuk, the study team included Trevor Lentz, a graduate of the UF rehabilitation science Ph.D. program and a postdoctoral research fellow at the Duke Clinical Research Institute; Ying He, a graduate of the UF biostatistics Ph.D. program and an assistant professor at Clarkson University; Samuel Wu, Ph.D., a professor in the UF department of biostatistics; and Steven George, Ph.D., a professor in the Duke Clinical Research Institute and the department of orthopaedic surgery at Duke University. Funding was provided by the Orthopaedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Foundation for Physical Therapy and the National Institutes of Health.

The Y wants families at Healthy Kids DaySummers coming, and youngsters shouldnt laze it away SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAs spring comes to an end, the Greater Naples YMCA hosts its annual Healthy Kids Day as a reminder not to let children idle away their summer days. Instead, adults need to help the youngsters in their lives awaken their imaginations so they can explore new activities and healthy habits for their minds and bodies. Healthy Kids Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, features active play, fitness classes, food demonstrations and various educational activities designed to motivate families develop healthy routines at home. Also in attendance will be representatives from the Collier County Sheriffs Office, North Collier Fire Rescue District, Collier County EMS, Humane Society Naples mobile adoption unit, food trucks and more. Admission and activities are free.Celebrated at more than 1,600 YMCAs across the country, Healthy Kids Day works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits they continue all summer long. When kids are out of school, they often face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school learning activities, kids fall behind academically. This summer learning loss is more pronounced among children from lowincome families. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. When a child is healthy, happy, motivated and excited, something amazing inevitably results, says Ivan Torres, Youth Development Program director at the Naples Y. We believe in the potential of all children, and we strive to help kids find that potential within themselves. A childs development is never on vacation. In celebration of Healthy Kids Day, the Y offers the following tips to help families develop healthy habits: High five the fruits and veggies Make sure kids get at least five servings a day, the minimum number nutritionists recommend to maintain healthy childhood development. And to keep kids taste buds evolving, have everyone in the family try at least one bite of a new fruit or vegetable at least once a month. Foster an early and ongoing passion for books Read to and with your kids. Help children read at every age and every stage of their development. Team up for athletic events Set a family goal of great health by teaming up for community or charity events like races, walks, fun runs, bike rides, etc. Volunteer together Find a cause that matters to the kids. Open their eyes to a world beyond themselves and the rich rewards that come from making a difference. Make sleep a priority Sleep plays a critical role in maintaining our healthy immune system, metabolism, mood, memory, learning and other vital functions. Doctors recommend 10-12 hours of sleep a day for children ages 5-12 and seven to eight hours per night for adults. For more information, visit www.greaternaplesymca.org.

CALL NOW TO EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE! Welcome! Literally, its a perfect time to do a deep dive for some new languageLast week, I had the following exchange with an acquaintance and her boyfriend, both of whom are in their mid-20s: Me So, how was your cruise? Her OMG, it was literally AWESOME. We literally went swimming with the dolphins and I petted one, LITERALLY.The Boyfriend I know, right? And we had the all-inclusive drink package, so I literally drank 10 rum and cokes a day. And our cabin was huge, I mean literally! Also, the people who cleaned it literally made swans and rabbits and stuff out of our towels like, LITERAL towel sculptures.I literally cant even. I mean, when did we start using the word literally so liberally? According to Merriam-Webster online its OK to use literally when emphasizing the truth and accuracy of a statement or description so, the folks who are so fond of the word arent necessarily using it incorrectly theyre just using it so often that its literally losing its meaning. I realize that every generation has its vernacular and I remember overusing gag me with a spoon and totally way more than necessary in the s, so I should be fine with how my friends under the age of 30 speak to each other. In fact, I have far more patience with the abuse of literally than I do with up talk and when it comes to the latter, I regret to say that Im guilty of ending sentences with a question? Up talk has been around since the s, but I blame the Kardashians for taking it so very mainstream. Up talk (and once again, well look to Merriam-Webster) is speech which uses a rising inflection and poses statements as if they were questions. For better or worse, I tend to unconsciously mimic whomever Im speaking to, so if Im chatting with someone British, Im all, Tally ho, mate! Shall we go to the pub for some bangers and mash? and if Im chewing the fat with a southerner, its not uncommon for me to start dropping yall and bless your heart all over the place. So, when having a conversation with an up-talker, I fall right into it, So, I went shopping? And I bought a blouse? The blouse was red? I think Im going to wear it with my blue skirt? Then I went to lunch? I sound ridiculous, but I cant help it?Its not just Millennials who are driving me to drink when it comes to speaking and language. When I sit in meetings and hear business people saying, Lets take a deep dive into this topic or, At the end of the day, what matters is or, Lets circle back to that I literally need these people to think outside the box and come up with less overused phrases.Finally, weve got to stop using perfect so much. Recently, at a luncheon, someone asked me to pass the salt I did, and rather than saying thank you, the person responded, perfect! What was so perfect? The way in which I passed it? Or perhaps the salt was perfect. I dont know, but Ive found that when it comes to communication these days, no one is literally perfect. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com A1 NetworkingCROWs Celebratory Evening 50 Years in the Making.

But more helping hands are always welcome, and HSN makes it easy to get involved. Two volunteer recruitment meetings take place monthly for those who want to learn more about making a difference in the lives of animals and people throughout the community. Anyone age 16 or older who wants to learn about being an HSN volunteer should attend a session from 10-11 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The next meeting is April 21. Student/ youth volunteers who are 16 years old can volunteer independently without a parent or guardians supervision. Volunteering for HSN is a great way to log student hours for class, graduation or scholarships. There are a few restrictions on duties that can be performed before the age of 18. Kids ages 12-15 and the parent or guardian who must accompany them whenever they volunteer can sign up for the Feline Fan Club. Orientation/ recruitment meetings for the club take place from 10-11 a.m. on the second Saturday of every month. The next one is May 12. There is no upper age limit for being an HSN volunteer. Helping out is not all cuddling kittens and playing with puppies, however; some areas of the shelter can be quite physically active and busy, so are not suitable for the skills and abilities of some individuals. Find out more at one of the monthly orientation sessions. For more information about HSN in general, visit www.hsnaples.org.

People are suspicious of organizations, institutions and leaders across the board. At the same time, competition is fierce. Your clients can leave you at any time (and for any reason) and replace your services with something faster, shinier, sexier. But heres the good news, says Paul Krasnow: When youre able to engage with clients the right way and build deeply connected, trust-based relationships TStrong client relationships are hard to come by and clients know it ... Thats why, when you know how to create such relationships, you win your clients loyalty, earn referrals and enjoy repeat business for life.

A28 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGAstronomical global debt means you must vet investmentsIf you are like most Americans, you have just received your tax refund and you are using some or all of that cash to pay down some form of debt. After all, it is no fun owing a mortgage, student loan, auto loan or credit card companies. But what if I told you that no matter how big a payment you were able to make, you will still have more debt than you will ever possibly be able to repay? The Institute of International Finance just released its annual calculation of the amount of global debt outstanding in the world and the number is mindboggling. So what is this number and how will that affect you and the financial markets going forward? Each year the institute, a global banking trade association, estimates the amount of debt outstanding in the world. This includes household debt, corporate debt, government debt and debt issued by banks and other financial institutions. Just last week, the group estimated that this number for 2017 was $237 trillion. The number is so large that to understand it, we must put it in perspective. There are around 5.4 billion adults in the world and if this debt was to be repaid equally among them, each would owe around $44,000. But even scarier is the fact that the majority of people around the world live in poverty with no savings and income of a few dollars a day. Clearly, these people could not be counted on to pay back this huge debt burden. So instead, if you were to ask only people in first world countries to pay back this debt, the burden would be about $290,000 per person. Where did this debt come from? Interest rates have been so low for the past several years that individuals, corporations and governments everywhere have eagerly borrowed this cheap money. And it is not just borrowers in rich countries that have embraced this trend. With investors clamoring for higher yields, even riskier borrowers have been able to access capital. In fact, the largest increase in borrowings on a percentage basis was countries like Argentina, Nigeria, Turkey and China. However, developed counties contributed to the greatest dollar increase in overall debt. Most of these countries now have a debt to overall GDP ratio of over 300 percent. That means that if every dollar of output from these countries goes to paying off debt, it would still take three years to pay back its creditors. These debt levels should be a great concern to investors. While there is significant publicity around rising government debt levels, this only makes up around one-third of all debt outstanding. Corporate and personal debt make up a majority of loans and these funds also must be paid back as they mature. And with interest rates expected to rise over the next several years, this problem will only become greater. As an investor, I would look closely at a potential investment targets balance sheet and only invest in a company that can survive in a higher rate environment. I would also look for investments that would not be hit hard in another banking crisis or environment where people are cut off from credit. Defensive stocks and consumer staples companies would be examples of this. While I dont think a debt crisis is just around the corner, I definitely think it is something that we all must keep an eye out for. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com with them, you automatically set yourself apart. Strong client relationships are hard to come by and clients know it, says Mr. Krasnow, author of The Success Code: A Guide for Achieving Your Personal Best in Business and Life. Thats why, when you know how to create such relationships, you win your clients loyalty, earn referrals and enjoy repeat business for life. But such deep connections cannot be faked, he stresses. They require your attention, your care and your authentic desire to serve your clients to the best of your ability. In both bad times and good, your commitment to them should be your top priority. Not everyone is willing to create and nurture these kinds of relationships. If you are, your business will thrive. Mr. Krasnow knows this truth because he has lived it. A financial representative at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, hes been a top producer for 40 years and has won many Top Agent titles with a performance record built upon years of engaging with clients and acting on the best practices he reveals in The Success Code. Here are some of them: First, commit to a personal code of integrity and live it each day Integrity should be a core value that steers all of your client interactions. This means committing to being honest and working hard with their best interests in mind. Develop a set of business integrity mantras you can strategically place around your office on Post-it notes or even posters, Mr. Krasnow suggests. Use them to remind yourself to always align your decisions with your code of business conduct. Give them peace of mind Your clients should always be in good hands with you. Develop a system that works for you to proactively give clients the highest level of service at all times. Whether its having a perfectly tweaked project management system or a crystal clear communication system, make sure you can always respond to your clients in a timely manner and that you provide expert answers to all of their questions. Build trust by keeping your promises If customer connections are the cornerstone of a successful business, trust is the cornerstone of a healthy client relationship, Mr. Krasnow says. Remember to keep your word and to deliver without fail. Keeping your word can be as small but equally important as never canceling an appointment or going over the allotted time for a meeting. This guideline might seem simplistic, he adds, but the approach will not only impress and delight clients, it will allow them to trust you with more business in the future. Building client trust makes you a winner every time. Be honest about what your services can deliver Dont oversell or overpromise the results you offer. Manage your clients expectations so they wont be disappointed. But whenever possible, do put them in touch with others who can help them where you cannot. Maybe they come to see you for insurance policies, but your consultant pal from college could help them streamline their business initiatives so you connect them, Mr. Krasnow says. This will only widen your networks and strengthen your client relationships. Dont sell your customers products they dont need Be upfront about products that would be a waste of their hard-earned money. Make their best interests your focus in approaching clients with your services. This tip is part of a larger philosophy of moving away from seeing a client as an immediate sale and moving toward building a long-term relationship. Deliver consistent service Mr. Krasnow knows that clients come to expect what they have experienced with your services in the past. Align yourself with a clearly defined mission, set of goals and level of commitment and ensure that clients receive the same level of care by delivering consistently high-quality service, time and time again. Find thoughtful ways to show you care Just showing up for your clients because you genuinely care about them is a sure way to solidify your connection with them. So send out birthday cards. Make a donation to a charity in your clients name, Mr. Krasnow suggests. Get to know each of your clients and show genuine interest in their lives. Remember details and ask about their families and lives. Create an emotional connection any chance you are able. Check in even when you have nothing to sell them Clients love to know you care about them beyond the sale of services. Do reach out to your clients from time to time and check in with them to see how they are doing. Dont forget about your existing clients, even when your business is booming with new ones Clients can tell when theyre on the back burner. Nobody wants to feel like a third wheel, certainly not your trusted clients, says Mr. Krasnow. Keep that connection strong and nurture it every step of the way by staying in clear communication with all of your clients. Resist going on autopilot Even if you have your sales technique down pat, find a way to actively engage with every client. Clients can sense if youre phoning it in. Try to step into the shoes of your client each time you have a meeting, Mr. Krasnow says. Remember that you are striving to improve their lives. If you make a mistake, apologize and fix the problem immediately In most cases, customers arent interested in holding grudges they want to forgive and forget. The best way to smooth things over when youve messed up is to make a heartfelt apology and then make it right. If your business is anything less than thriving, you should first and foremost examine your relationship with your clients, Mr. Krasnow concludes. The truth is, you are far more in control of your brands growth than you give yourself credit for. Thats why its so important to take true ownership of the connection you build with your clients. Youll be amazed how much your deeper commitment to them will pay off in the long run. Before joining Northwestern Mutual, Paul Krasnow suffered a financially devastating bankruptcy with a line of clothing stores he owned. Today he regularly speaks for multiple life associations in the U.S. and gives seminars for law firms and CPA firms in the Southern California area. For more information, visit www.paulgkrasnow. com.

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Januarys results led some to question expectations for the year when compared to last, yet in February the market gained its stride, accelerating in March with closed sales shooting ahead to end the first quarter on a very impressive note, said Budge Huskey, president of Premier Sothebys International Realty. According to NABOR monthly reports, January had 672 closed sales, February reported 672 closed sales, but March kept agents very busy with 942 closed sales, driven by a strong high end which included a number of new construction condominiums just delivered. Pending sales in the first quarter of 2018 increased 3 percent to 3,177 compared to 3,097 in the first quarter of 2017. Although pending sales for both single-family homes and condominiums over $1 million increased by double digits, it was the $2 million and above condominium market that raised eyebrows among brokers who reviewed the reports.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Kalea Bays clubhouse a hit with residents Tower 200 surpasses $100 million in sales If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and DelnorWiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower, which is sold out. For the past four months, the sales effort at Kalea Bay has been focused on the communitys second residential tower. To date, it has recorded over 50 sales and surpassed the $100 million mark in sales volume, said Lodge. Like Tower 100, Tower 200 has 120 residences. Its also 22 stories in height and will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Tower 200 will also feature a rooftop pool, open-air fitness and sky lounge. Whether lounging poolside or enjoying the company of friends in our community room, the views from the rooftop can only be described as spectacular, stated Lodge. We had very high expectations for our sky amenities in our first tower and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level. Prices at Kalea Bay currently start at $1.4 million. 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.

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYFalling in love with London Bay Homes Port Royal estate model at 4395 Gordon DriveThe 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 wideplank 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 239-2807367 or visit LondonBay.com.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRonto going to contract at Omega, the final high-rise at Bonita BayAfter processing reservations worth nearly $80 million at its Omega high-rise tower within Bonita Bay, The Ronto Group announced it is now converting reservations to binding sales contracts. The 27-floor Omega tower to be built by the award-winning developer will be the final luxury high-rise at Bonita Bay. Designed by Robert M. Swedroe, the clean-lined tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses. Swedroes design presents a fresh, out of market perspective on luxury and an approach to high-rise living that has never been available in the Southwest Florida market. With all four of the penthouses reserved, Ronto is now accepting purchase agreements for tower residences. Tower residence pre-construction pricing starts at $2.150 million. We have experienced an unbelievable demand for residences at Omega, said Ronto Group president Anthony Solomon. Our goal was to offer something that has never been offered before in Southwest Florida. We spoke with potential purchasers prior to designing the building. They indicated view corridors and open floor plans with large living areas, large owners suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and easily accessible storage were critical. Functionality and comfort were more important than form. Rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium, they wanted to simplify their lives by moving into a maintenancefree environment without sacrificing space or livability. We designed accordingly. Rather than designing a four unit per floor building, we created a three unit per floor approach that allowed the residences to be wider and more spacious than typical condominiums. Omega is the final high-rise at Bonita Bay, and we want it to be unique and very special. We believe it will be and our customers were directly involved in making that happen. The open living spaces and sheer size of the Omega tower residences reflect Ronto and Swedroes approach. Omegas light-filled tower residences will feature larger, wider, open living spaces with tall windows overlooking Estero Bay and the Gulf. The 63 tower residences will be on levels four through 25. Three floor plans are available. The living spaces, owners suites, and some of the guest bedrooms will open to outdoor terraces with 42-inch high glass railings. Volume ceiling heights of ten feet four-inches, except where dropped, will create a sense of space not available in Southwest Floridas existing high-rise residences. All three of the tower plans present huge open-concept living areas with a spacious great room, a double-island kitchen in the 01 and 03 residences with a large walk-in pantry, and a dining area. Every tower residence comes with a private elevator lobby and a private enclosed two-car garage. Tower residents will also enjoy a roof-top amenity deck. The 01 and 03 tower residences will include 4,645 square feet of air-conditioned space, outdoor terrace areas totaling 1,005 square feet, and an 80-square foot or 75-square foot private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence. Both plans feature a great room, dining area, family room, and a double-island kitchen that combine to create an exceptionally spacious open living area. The great room and owners bedroom open to an immense west and northwest facing terrace with conversation areas, a dining area, and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. A linear fireplace is included in the great room. The double-island kitchen offers an additional gathering place. The plan includes a den, four-and-a-half baths, and three guest bedrooms. The den and all three guest bedrooms open to another large terrace that offers sunrise views. The owners suite features a walk-in closet, and a bath with separate vanities and separate water closets. The 02-tower plan offers 4,210-square feet under air, 540 square feet of outdoor terrace space, and 75 square feet of private air-conditioned storage space. The plan features a massive great room, dining area, family room, and island kitchen that combine to create a huge open living area. The great room opens to a terrace with conversation and dining areas and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The plan includes a den, three-and-ahalf baths, and three large bedrooms that provide views of Estero Bay and the Gulf. The owners suite features a walk-in closet, and a bath with separate vanities and separate water closets. Standard finishes in the Omega residences will reflect Rontos attention to creating a luxurious yet livable environment. Flooring in the living areas will be wood, stone, or porcelain tile. The island kitchens will be outfitted with designer selected cabinetry, a multitude of quartz or granite countertop selections, a 36-inch SubZero refrigerator and 18-inch freezer, Wolf gas ranges and ovens, a Miele dishwasher, and Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. The bathrooms will also feature designer selected cabinetry and quartz or granite countertops, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, and Toto toilets. Omega features 18,000 square feet of interior amenities, including a billiards room, a bar and social room, a catering kitchen, fitness center, conference room, and three guest suites. Outside, a single level amenity deck surrounded by glass railings will include a resortstyle pool and spa, a pool pavilion with a bar and dining tables, a hot tub, shaded areas, a cabana party area, fire pits with built-in seating, and six cabanas that are available for purchase and include a kitchenette and bathroom.

No moving furniture. No purchasing new window coverings or artwork. Simply arrive at your new home complete with designer-selected furnishings and enjoy immediate occupancy. Award-winning interior designer Jerilyn Antonacci, president of Antonacci Design Group created the contemporary interior design of model 301, inspired by the curves of the building and the views of the water, spanning 4,171 sf under air with includes three bedrooms, a den and three-and-a-half bathrooms and priced at $2.545 million. The view is what we are always striving for, so we kept the open floor plan and created a palate of modern colors, explains Ms. Antonacci. The open floor plan appeals to people moving from a single-family home to a maintenancefree waterfront lifestyle, she adds. The model has a great room, kitchen and living room that line up against large windows overlooking the nearby marina. Design elements are very modern: a table with a center cutout, black coffee tables in three layers with smaller black tables, shimmering wallpaper and a linear fireplace. The master bedroom overlooks the water, so Antonacci boosted the view with a large oval mirror over the bed to reflect that scenery. She used lots of white and gold colors, and unique design elements. The wall behind the bed features a wallpaper starburst. Modern artwork is placed throughout. The master bathroom features a twoperson built-in tub nestled against a big picture window that overlooks the water. A silk hand-knotted throw by Ann Gish styles the bed in one of the guest rooms. The second guest room is a blush pink. The den has a long built-in desk and cubbies nestled in the wall.

B32 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBest of both worlds: Naples Reserves social lifestyle is surprisingly affordableOne of South Naples fastestselling communities, Naples Reserve channels the ambience of Floridas old beach towns with Southern Coastal architecture and the spirit of Key West in a 688-acre community woven amongst 22 freshwater lakes including the centerpiece 125-acre Eagle Lake. Naples Reserve has attracted homebuyers with its social lifestyle and resort-style community of attached villa, single-family and custom estate homes. And residents agree, its affordability only adds to the appeal. When Felipe and Cristina Duran embarked upon their new home search, they immediately recognized that Naples Reserves amenities and value set it apart from other communities. The look and feel of the community really appealed to us, said Cristina. The lot sizes and affordable and comprehensive HOA fees were added incentives. Naples Reserve residents enjoy a full social calendar planned by Lifestyle and Fitness Director Carri Adam, who themes many of the events around activities and amenities offered in the community. Many events are held at Naples Reserves $7 million Island Club social center, which features a 5,160-squarefoot clubhouse and an adjacent 3,500-square-foot fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and a movement studio for spinning, Zumba and yoga. An expansive, resort-style, zeroentry pool offers a tropical waterfall and dedicated lap lanes, and the lakefront Match Point tennis and pickleball complex offers opportunities for friendly competition among neighbors. The Durans, who purchased a lakeview home in the Savannah Lakes neighborhood, said they regularly take advantage of the Island Clubs fitness center and pool. We also enjoy Fire Pit Friday! said Cristina. Our events are a great way for residents to get to know their neighbors as they familiarize themselves with Naples Reserves amenities and all of the social opportunities offered within the community, said Adam. Residents celebrated all season long in Naples Reserve style. More than 100 High Roller Naples Reserve residents enjoyed Casino Night at the Island Club, complete with blackjack, craps, roulette, poker tables and slot machines all staffed by professional dealers. Winners cashed out to receive gift cards to local restaurants and Naples Reserve favorites, including Latitudes Cafe and Chat n Chill Tiki Bar. At the end-of-season Motown Party, residents got their groove on to the soulful sounds of Naples infamous ExBachelors band while dining on soul food-style fare from Friscos Catering. Upcoming events include a Neighbors Night Out bus tour to Cape Corals Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery and Big Blue Brewery, where residents will learn how rum and beer are made from scratch, as well as a festive fiesta to celebrate Cinco de Mayo around the resort-style pool! Adam also regularly hosts educational and entertaining presentations. During these events, residents have learned paddleboard basics, practiced bocce ball and brushed up on their CPR technique. All of the experiences residents share make it a close-knit community, said Adam. Naples Reserve residents Tom and Sue Marquardt lived in Annapolis, Maryland for 36 years prior to moving to Naples Reserve. A year ago, the couple selected the Minorca, a three-bedroom, two-anda-half-bath Ashton Woods home with 2,663 square feet of living space in the Sparrow Cay neighborhood. As new residents, the Marquardts took getting social into their own hands and organized progressive dinners with their Sparrow Cay neighbors. It was something we enjoyed doing with our friends in Maryland, and its a great way to bring people together, said Tom Marquardt. Over a year later, the dinners have grown to a quarterly event for eight couples. Retired from the newspaper publishing industry, Marquardt now has more time to devote to activities like kayaking on Naples Reserves Eagle Lake, swimming laps in the pool and biking, but he enjoys more social pursuits as well. He and Sue havent missed one of Adams community events. In fact, Marquardt an oenophile who has a website and writes a weekly syndicated column, Wine Etc. helped coordinate a wine tasting event in the spring at the Outrigger Center that was attended by more than 50 Naples Reserve residents. Weve never been in a community that has been this active. There is high energy here and a thriving drive to get to know each other. Weve made so many new friends, said Marquardt. Moving to Naples Reserve was the smartest thing we did in retirement! Along with Naples Reserves social offerings, its homes are also earning rave reviews. In recognition of overall excellence in construction and design, two custom-built homes in the Parrot Cay neighborhood were recently honored with 2018 Parade of Homes Awards by the Collier Building Industry Association: the three-bedroom, two bath Newport, built by KTS Homes, and Florida Lifestyle Homes three-bedroom, threeand-a-half bath Siesta Key model.

with strong pending sales for the quarter, said Kathy Zorn, president/owner of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Pristine. But I wasnt expecting to see a 109 percent increase during the quarter in pending sales for condominiums over $2 million. Coco Amar, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties, said the condominum market offers some very good investment opportunities, especially at both ends of the market. The top and bottom price categories are where both the inventory has grown and the prices have dropped. As reflected in the markets yearending statistics (the 12 months ending 1Q 2018 versus the 12 months ending 1Q 2017), there was a 69 percent increase in closed sales of condominiums in the $2 million and above market, and a 17 percent decrease in the median closed price to $2,450,000 from $2,962,000 in 2017. Despite rocket sales in this high-end sector during the 1Q 2018 (179 percent increase) and a drop in median closed prices for the first quarter (24 percent decrease), the inventory increased 5 percent. Similarly, median closed prices for condominiums in the $300,000 and below price category dropped 1 percent to $199,000 from $200,000 in the first quarter of 2017, but inventory increased 3 percent in 1Q 2018. The NABOR First Quarter 2018 Market Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Broker experts analyzing the reports said most counties in Florida continue to see inventories decline, but the Naples area has experienced a steady rise over the past few months. Jeff Jones, managing broker for Engel & Vlkers in Naples and Bonita Springs, said there is currently 8.25 months of inventory available in Collier County. Months of inventory is a nationally accepted measurement of how fast all existing homes on the market would last assuming no additional listings are added and sales activity continues to remain the same as the previous 12 months of sales. There were 118 closed sales of condominiums between $1.4 million and just over $2 million in a new development in North Naples during the last two months that impacted our median closed price statistics, said Wes Kunkle, president and managing broker at Kunkle International Realty. These one-day-on-the-market closed sales are one reason why the report showed a 13 percent increase in the median closed price for condominiums in the $1 million to $2 million category and a 24 percent decrease in median closed prices for condominiums in the $2 million and above category. Mr. Kunkle, along with several brokers who reviewed the newest NABOR reports, is concerned sellers could misinterpret this statistical anomaly as a reflection of the areas comparable pricing activity. These sales were for new luxury condos that were secured over a two-year period, he said. When the project obtained its final certificate of occupancy, the closings were finalized and they all appeared as a one-day sale in the MLS.

However, this was not the only new construction activity that influenced NABORs first quarter statistics. According to Mr. Jones, many sellers of speculative single-family homes that have been on the market for two-plus years in neighborhoods like Park Shore and the Moorings began to set more realistic list prices this past quarter, which resulted in more sales in the high-end, single-family home market. Overpriced homes dont sell, Mr. Jones said. In fact, I think sales during January and February could have been better had many of these sellers set their prices realistically earlier. It wasnt until March that I began to see an uptick in price decreases in the MLS for many of these speculative homes, and then those sellers saw multiple offers from buyers who had been holding out.

Whether youre a woman growing new life or the man who put it there, preparing for a baby is a life experience rife with conflicting emotions. TheatreZones production of Baby promises to take audiences on along for the journey with three expectant couples who dont know what to make of their impending parenthood. I love the story, says Mark Danni, founding artistic director of the professional company. I think its the very premise that sets you up for so many situations the three couples are in various stages of their lives and the only tying factor is that theyre on this college campus and expecting. Winner of the 1994 Drama Desk Awards for Best Musical and Best Music, Baby follows college students Lizzie and Danny; 30-somethings Pam and Nick, who have been trying to become pregnant without success; and empty-nesters Arlene and Oh, baby!

Theyre in the bag scott SIMMONS email@example.com Grandma was proud of her shell handbag. Shed taken a class in the early 1960s at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and had learned the raw beginnings of coquillage, or shell art, gluing bits of treasure heaved from the sea onto the fabric panel that formed the side of a pocketbook she carried for years. It was a white wicker purse with clear plastic that covered the shells, as I recall. It was, oh, so distinctly Florida. When that handbag finally wore out, she carefully cut away the shell panel and tacked it to a wicker bag she kept the rest of her life. It seemed every region had bespoke purses back in the day. Of course, Nantucket baskets remain popular (and valuable). But remember the other bags? In the later 1960s and 1970s, decoupage and painted purses came in to vogue. Annie Laurie (yes, that really was her name) created handpainted and decoupage wooden purses in the Palm Beaches. Her purses remain popular with collectors and Palm Beachers who love a touch of nostalgia. Others may well remember the CaroNan baskets that seemingly were everywhere from the mid-1960s through the early s. The purses, created by Carolyn McDaniel and Nancy Steele of Jackson, Miss., bore simple motifs of colorful townhouses they handpainted around the sides of baskets made in Vermont. They localized them, painting the names of the boutiques that sold the purses onto the storefronts and other buildings, and adding decoupage elements that read France, Fabulous, Palm Beach and other locales. At the height of their popularity, Caro-Nan was selling 5,000 bags a month. I remember seeing the bags at boutiques along Naples Fifth Avenue South, as well as along tony St. Armands in Sarasota. The ladies who created the bags are now in their 80s, according to an interview they did a couple of years ago with the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. In that interview, they described how the purses also could be used as seats at sporting events, and remembered how children would perch atop the purses in pews for better views at church. The purses certainly speak to their time and to mine. Bought: Smile y W ile y Breast Cancer Foundation Thrift Store, 501 Alternate A1A, Jupiter; 561-632-8631 or www. smileywiley.org. Paid: $12 The Skinny: I remember seeing these bags when I was a boy I thought it was so cool that a purse listed shops in towns I knew. Davids Fifth Avenue actually was along Worth Avenue, near Via Mizner, in Palm Beach. This purse is in good shape, considering its half-century or so of existence. Its quilted crimson calico lining offers an added touch of wit and whimsy. And, yes, thats a 1967 penny glued to its top. Im sure its just for luck. We all can use that.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Visit the Rib City in your Neighborhood Today! Find a Location & View Our Menu at ribcity.com CATERING SERVICES CALL (239) 209-0940 AM PM AM PM Think of it as a series of amuse bouches, or a theatrical buffet. Or a collection of plays for people with very short attention spans, if you wish. Though a book of 10-minute plays was published way back in 1923, most people consider the genre to have started at the Actors Theatre of Louisvilles 1977 Humana Festival of New American Plays. According to www.theatredatabase.com, they began there as a quirky exercise in Polaroid playwriting. It originated with theaters trying to find out what playwrights can do, Mr. Blocker says. They felt, if someone could put 10 minutes together a beginning, middle and an end, develop their story and tie it all up in 10 minutes its the equivalent of a two-minute audition for an actor. Watching 10-minute plays became popular with audiences. Its compared to seeing a selection of short films, he adds. You can get something across pretty quick (in that short amount of time), Mr. Blocker insists, adding that there are even shorter play contests requiring works that last only three minutes, or just one. He was involved with short plays as an actor and playwright in New York City, and kept an extensive online listing of competitions and opportunities things like childrens theater, musical workshops and retreats, for example for playwrights on a website. He wound up holding short play competitions, which resulted in three books: Stage THIS! Ten-Minute Plays (edited with Jan Herndon), Stage This, TOO! More Ten-Minute Plays (edited with Sydney Stone and M.S. Changar) and Stage THIS! Volume 3 (edited with S. Stone and Dana Todd). He held competitions every two years with different theater companies in New York, he says. Then the Center for Performing Arts in Bonita Springs asked him to hold a competition last year. And so he did, calling it Stage It! 10-Minute Plays. He also released a self-published, print-on-demand book with the same name, containing the 12 plays that were staged at that first Bonita festival. He called it that, he says, To insist to the reader to not only read it, but stage it, because thats what plays are meant for, to be seen on the stage or, at the very least, to be read aloud. And its a community thing; you need more than one person to read a play aloud. This years book, Stage It! 2: Thirty 10-Minute Plays contains the 10 works that comprise this years festival, plus 20 submissions that didnt make the final cut. The quality (of the submitted plays this year) was just too good, he says, adding anyone who likes experimental theater, comedy or drama could pick up the book and easily find at least three or four plays they could start working on. The book sells for $18.95 and will be available at both performances of the festival, which doubles as a book release party.From the judges viewpointMr. Blocker had 20 judges help him read this years entries; he read all 206 of them, however. And he insisted the judges provide critiques for every submission, because playwrights crave feedback and typically do not receive it, he says. So what makes a compelling 10-minute play? You want characters that are immediately interesting or recognizable, something you can connect to, he says. I was in the middle of reading so many, and then I picked up one, and (in it) two actors dressed in sheep costumes are rehearsing a vaudeville routine, and the first sheep says to the second sheep, and a five, six, seven, eight! Wait a minute, sheep rehearsing a vaudeville act? They got you right off the bat. Youre interested. You want an attention-grabber, something to get the audience immediately into the story. Just after reading the first line, I thought, Im going to like this. Festivalgoers will be able to decide whether they also like Sheep! Another play that made the cut is Ebook Meets Treebook, in which an e-book and a print book meet on a park bench and talk. They have that yin-yang thing going on: Youre old, its OK for you to be outside. I like the feel of the wind through my pages. Theyre having that conversation. The book teaches the e-book how to use her imagination. Another work, The Most Lamentable Tragedy of the Bull of Queens, was based on an old newspaper article about a bull escaping a slaughterhouse in Queens, N.Y. The play is all in verse, a Greek tragedy, Mr. Blocker says. Its from the bulls point of view. Some submissions started out promising, only to fall apart at the end. Id think, Oh, no. They didnt know how to end it, he says.About the performancesA cast of 20 or so local actors will perform the 10 plays, he says, with some doing double or triple roles. Theyre offbook, having memorized their lines. The sets are minimal, as there isnt a lot of time to change complex sets in between the mini-plays. Mr. Blocker, who is directing two of the works, admits that watching a series of short plays in rapid succession can be a little daunting. Sometimes, he adds, I think, Id like a little more time to digest this one. But everybody works on different wavelengths, so how long would you have to take in between shows? Jim Corsica, a Naples Players actor who also acted in TheatreZones Amadeus with Mr. Blocker, will act in one play and direct another. He plays a somewhat mad scientist in A Lively Outfit. I play the manager of a Stein Mart, Mr. Corsica says. And hes doing some research in bringing clothes to life. Its a take-off on the mad scientist genre, but hes trying to bring Stein Mart clothes to life using Gatorade and 9-volt batteries. Mr. Corsica is directing Cancelled, which he says he chose because I like a challenge. Cancelled is about two gay men who, in the process of adopting a boy from Africa, discover the child has died. Its about how they deal with it, he says. I like a play in which gay folks are presented as people going through ordinary life experiences just like everybody else does. I happen to be a little biased: I have two daughters who are gay, and of course, being involved in the theater, I have a lot of gay friends. I have some who have had trouble with adoption, or other life experiences. Its a 12-page, 10-minute play that doesnt resolve all the problems of the world, but shows you how one couple deals with (this experience.)More mini-plays, more oftenThe festivals have been so popular that Susan Bridges, president of the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs, wants to hold one every three months. Well do some funny shorts, do five or six short plays for a one-night event, Mr. Blocker elaborates. Were planning this for next season. Its a nice little variety of plays, Mr. Corsica says of the upcoming festival. And the price is right. Its $12. Almost a song, Mr. Blocker says, then adds, A song is probably more expensive.

Sponsored by Friends of the Museum of the Everglades90th Anniversary Celebration of the Opening of the Tamiami Trail Ripcord promises to pull on your heartstrings SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe curtain comes down on another season for The Naples Players with an award-winning comedy about assisted living by David Lindsay-Abaire. Ripcord opens with a red-carpet reception on Wednesday, April 25, and runs through May 20. A seemingly harmless bet between two old women quickly escalates into a hilarious game of one-upmanship with the prize being the sunny upper-floor room of the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. Janina Birtolo plays the incessantly chipper but sly Marilyn Dunne to the foil of Bonnie Knapp in the role of the cantankerous but likeable Abby Binder. When the two are required to share a room in the retirement home, their dramatically different personalities immediately rub each other the wrong way. When Marilyn arrives as Abbys possible new roommate, Abby pleads with an orderly, If I have to have someone in here, why cant it be someone quiet? What about that woman without the voicebox? She seems nice. Knowing this odd-couple roommate situation will not work, the two make a bet. Marilyn insists that nothing makes her angry, while Abby claims she is never, ever scared. If Abby can make Marilyn lose her temper, Marilyn will move out. That is, unless Marilyn frightens Abby first. In that case, Abby gets to have Marilyns bed, which is right next to the window and has a lovely view of a park. For fans of the 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls, its easy to imagine the setup of Ripcord. Just picture Rose and Dorothy making a bet to push each other to break from their respectively brave and cheerful personalities. Throw the boundaries of 1980s television out the window and you have the funny and unexpectedly relatable and heartwarming Ripcord. Mr. Lindsay-Abaire made a name for himself with more dramatic works including Good People and his Pulitzer Prizewinning Rabbit Hole. But before those more serious plays, he was known for writing comedies, including the hit Fuddy Meers about a day in the life of an amnesiac abducted by a mysterious stranger. Hes a master of the setup and punch line, says Bryce Alexander, TNP executive artistic director. You might be able to imagine where the plot is heading, but when the worst case scenarios actually occur, you still find yourself laughing in disbelief. ETC reading paves the way for a world premiere this fallThe Naples Players ETC Readers Theatre presents a reading of June & Jasons Survival Guide to Divorce at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 6, in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. The reading is the first step to producing the comedy by Laura Lorussos as a world premiere in October as part of TNPs 2018-19 65th anniversary season. Developing this show with Laura Lorusso and this amazing cast has been an opportunity of a lifetime, says Jessica Walck, TNP associate artistic director and curator of ETC Readers Theatre. I cannot wait to share this show with the world. The reading is the last one before the show goes into production. An audience talk-back will follow the performance. Reminiscent of great sit-com humor, June & Jasons Survival Guide to Divorce introduces an unforgettable collection of zany neighbors and friends who try to save June and Jason from a looming divorce. Ms. Walck directs the cast that includes JamieLynn Bucci (June), Cole Butcher (Jason), Patti Caroli (Josephine), Katie Cross (Lacy), Paul Polomsky (Doug), Christopher Rand (Sam) and Greg Sofranko (Richard). Tickets for $10 are available at the box office or online. Call 263-7990 or go to www.naplesplayers.org.

FILM CAPSULESBeirut (Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris) A U.S. diplomat (Hamm) in early s Beirut must negotiate the release of an old friend whos been taken hostage by terrorists. Its laborious to the point that you stop caring whether the hostage, the diplomat or anyone else comes out alive. Rated R.Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, Ed Helms) In July 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy (Clarke) drives his car off a small bridge, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) and putting his political career in turmoil. What happened, how and the cover-up that followed makes for compelling drama that presents the information as objectively as possible. Based on a true story. Rated PG-13.Ready Player One (Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn) In 2045, people use avatars to search for an Easter Egg in a virtual reality world. The visuals and action are great in director Steven Spielbergs latest, but its the retro pop culture references, along with the classic rock soundtrack, that make this an absolute blast. Rated PG-13.The Death of Stalin (Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor) Following his death in March 1953, Josef Stalins underlings scheme for control of Russia in this highly effective farce. Its silly, absurd and biting and as darkly, morbidly funny as it aspires to be. Rated R.Unsane (Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Amy Irving) A woman (Foy) moves to a new town to avoid a stalker (Leonard), but soon finds him working in the mental hospital to which shes involuntarily committed. Its the first time director Steven Soderbergh has ventured into psychological thriller territory, and the results are creepy enough to call it a success. 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.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.The Hurricane Heist (Maggie Grace, Toby Kebbell, Ralph Ineson) A U.S. Treasury officer (Grace) must stop a $600 million heist as a Category 5 hurricane hits the fictional town of Gulfport, Ala. 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.Peter Rabbit (Voices of Margot Robbie, James Corden, Daisy Ridley) Peter Rabbit (Corden) likes to steal food from poor old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), but the bold bunny 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.7 Days In Entebbe (Rosamund Pike, Daniel Bruhl, Eddie Marsan) Terrorists hijack an Air France flight to Tel Aviv in the hope of embarrassing the Israeli government in negotiations. Sadly, theres little suspense and its almost always dull. Rated PG-13.Happy End (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 (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.

NoAt some point in our lives, most of us have played Truth or Dare. The rules are simple: Choose Truth or Dare, then either tell the truth or complete the dare. In real life, not fulfilling your obligation will cost you nothing except perhaps some fun points from your friends. In Truth or Dare, it will cost you your life. Its a clever premise, and being a thriller from Blumhouse Productions, the studio behind Get Out, theres plenty to hope for here. Perhaps this optimism is what makes the lackluster movie all the more frustrating. The story is thin, the dialog is lazy, the acting doesnt really matter. This is by-the-numbers mediocrity for which the best compliment is that its only rated PG-13; we dont need to see the grisly gruesomeness thats implied and, thankfully, the worst of it is left off screen. College seniors, spring break. Olivia (Lucy Hale) and Markie (Violett Beane) are best friends, so Markie tricks her into going to Mexico for the week. Markies boyfriend Lucas (Tyler Posey) joins them, as do party girl Penelope (Sophia Ali), her boyfriend Tyson (Nolan Gerard Funk) and their gay friend Brad (Hayden Szeto). Moron acquaintance Ronnie (Sam Lerner) bumps into them in Mexico, and Carter (Landon Liboiron), a random stranger at the bar who sticks up for Olivia, rounds out the octet. With the bar closing and spring break nearly over, Carter insists he knows of an after party. He takes them to an abandoned church in the middle of nowhere and kindly suggests playing Truth or Dare. The game is as awkward as usual, until Carter ruins it by getting weird: Tell the truth or you die, do the dare or you die, he says before running off. Of course, there wouldnt be a movie if his foreboding warning didnt have credence. Figuring out how to survive long enough to beat the game is intriguing for a while. Then the story behind exactly how this is all happening comes, and its a bit weak. This happens when you have four credited screenwriters (more than two is always a bad sign). A little more ingenuity wouldve gone a long way here. Some of the dares (emphasis on some) are reasonably creative. The best is when burgeoning alcoholic Penelope is dared to walk along the edge of a three-story roof until she finishes a bottle of vodka. If only director Jeff Wadlow instilled more imagination into the rest of the film. Instead we get random individuals morphing into Joker smiles and freaking people out. It gets old after a while. Truth or Dare deserves credit for this, though: At one point, Lucas advises to only choose truth. This makes sense because while the truth can hurt, at least it wont kill you. This means college seniors actually use logic and do something smart. Unfortunately, though, it doesnt work out thanks to a plot contrivance that manifests shortly thereafter and thats fine, because not much else works out in this movie either. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The cast played a real game of Truth or Dare during lming; the only central cast member not to play was Hale, who chose to go to bed instead.Did you know?

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Exhibit extension through April 29! DONT MISS IT! NAPLESZOO.ORGCome meet these playful African Penguins before they leave town! At Naples Zoo now through April 29, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE ARTS COMMENTARYMr. Green, in the apartment, with a visitorMr. Green doesnt get many visitors. No, scratch that. He doesnt get any visitors. He has sunk into a depression, grieving the loss of his wife of 59 years. She was younger than he; he never expected shed go first. Like many women of that generation, she did everything for him, from cooking to cleaning to propping up his ego. But now shes gone, and hes lost. Hes pretty much barricaded himself in his Upper West Side apartment in New York City. He used to go out more, but when he did recently, he stepped out into traffic without looking and almost got hit by a speeding car. He wound up falling down in front of the car. And now, in his safe apartment, that very driver of that car has shown up. But hes not there to harm him or torment him, as he fears. The young man, Ross Gardiner, is there because a judge declared he has to visit Mr. Green weekly for the next six months, as community service. Ross doesnt exactly want to be there, but determines to make the best of it. Mr. Green doesnt want him there. He doesnt want anyone there. But then, who else would come? His wife is gone. And as he describes it, he has no children, no relatives. Everyones gone, he moans. And this is the contrived premise of Visiting Mr. Green, the two-man play at The Laboratory Theater of Florida. Mr. Green is no afternoon tea party. Hes defensive and suspicious and paranoid. Tell him something and hell roar, Who says? Actor Michael Hennessey wears the role like an old robe. He resists the temptation to ham it up or make his character cute and funny. Hes prickly, difficult. Frankly, not very likeable. Brandon Somers, as Ross, the 20-something visitor, could be seriously overshadowed, a lightweight up against a heavyweight. But he holds his own. The two are a study in contrasts: Mr. Green is 86, stooped over, rotund. Ross is young, tall, all legs and arms, whippetthin. Mr. Green is set in his ways. He sits in his dimly lit, somewhat neglected apartment. He forgets to eat. Ross, of course, is his savior, bringing him food, cleaning his apartment, drawing Mr. Green back into the world of the living and making the cranky man somewhat more sociable. Like Mr. Green, the dialogue and plot can be a little heavy-handed at times. It is to the credit of the cast and director Annette Trossbach that this predictable, sometimes preachy script still has powerful and poignant moments, despite itself. Its not giving anything away to say that Mr. Green, a Lou Grant-type character, softens up, but at least he doesnt turn into a perky Mary Tyler Moore. But playwright Jeff Baron has the two discuss how gays are persecuted and stereotyped, just as the Jews are. Its almost as if the characters stop becoming people and are transformed into spokespeople for the playwrights viewpoints. (When Ross tells Mr. Green hes gay, Mr. Green tells him he cant be, because hes Jewish. And besides, he says, repeating old myths, gays act like women and they bother little boys. But Ross tells him hes stereotyping gays in the same way that some people stereotype Jews.) Ross anguish when talking about his familys rejection of himself rings true, but not the fact that he cant be out and has to live a closeted life. Its not as if hes living in a small town in the 1950s. Hes in his 20s, a generation that grew up with gay-straight alliances in high schools, It Gets Better and out gay people on TV shows and in movies. Television has everything from RuPaul to Ellen to the new version of Will and Grace. Plus, the guy lives in Manhattan, for crying out loud, a gay mecca for those living in small, conservative towns, a city filled with gay bars, gay clubs, gay square dancing, gay softball teams. The play, and Lab Theater, has their heart in the right place. And thanks to the actors skill, Visiting Mr. Green doesnt become a Hallmark Card Special and surpasses its material. The play highlights the tragedy of families who reject their own children, the necessity and joy of making your own chosen family. It possesses its comedic moments, such as a priceless scene when Mr. Hennessey demonstrates that he knows how to clean comedic gold. Visiting Mr. Green can even spur tears, if you can overlook some of its contrivances. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOMichael Hennessey and Brandon Somers star in Visiting Mr. Green.

In some of these cases, though, the situation is not quite as hopeless as it might seem. All thats required is that declarer expend a little bit of extra effort. Consider this deal where three notrump would have been the ideal contract, but where North-South reached four spades instead. Declarer won the diamond lead with the ace and played the queen of spades, taken by East with the ace. East returned his singleton heart, but South went up with the ace, drew two more rounds of trump ending in dummy, and then led the jack of hearts, planning to let it ride if East followed low. But when East discarded a diamond, it seemed declarer would have to lose a trick in each suit and go down one. However, South soon found a way to turn the bad news in hearts to his advantage. He started by playing the king of hearts and then the king of diamonds. When West followed suit, his original distribution became an open book. The play to this point had revealed that West started with exactly three spades, six hearts and two diamonds. He therefore had to have precisely two clubs, which in turn gave South two different ways to make the contract! In practice, South played the A-K of clubs and led a third club. East won and cashed a diamond, but was then forced to return either a diamond or a club, allowing declarer to discard his heart loser while he ruffed in dummy. The same result could have been achieved by putting West on lead with a heart after cashing the A-K of clubs, compelling him to return a heart for the fatal ruff-and-discard.

Classes begin with the basics and work toward a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of theatrical skills. Singing, dancing, diction, volume, terminology, character, costume and plot are all introduced and developed as children progress through the program. Teamwork, confidence building and fun are the goals of the program. Registration is open now for four summer sessions: June 4-15, June 18-29, July 9-20 and July 23-Aug. 3. The following programs are offered at each session: KinderAct for children in Pre-K and kindergarten; First Act for firstand secondgraders; Third Act for those in grades 3-8; and Acting for Autism Spectrum Disorder/Sensory Processing Disorder (all ages). TNP partners with The Naples Art Association so that students can enjoy theater and art on the same day. They attend a theater class in the morning and have a supervised lunch followed by a supervised walk to the NAA for an afternoon art class. Get in on the ACTTNP also offers two summer sessions of its Advanced Conservatory Theatre program for middle and high school students. Dates are June 4-29 and July 9-Aug. 3. Classes meet from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Taught by TNP staff and guest artists of TNP, ACT core classes in acting, voice and movement are emphasized along with specialized electives. Students spend the day in one core class and one elective. Along with performance classes, all students receive backstage access to learn about the technical elements of theater. Core ACT classes are: Acting is Doing Through monologues and scene work, instructor Jessica Walck guides students in how to bring truth to their acting. This class is an intensive workout for the actor to become more comfortable performing as they understand what drives their character. Voice for Musical Theatre In a master class setting with instructor Charles Fornara, students receive independent coaching and feedback in audition repertoire and work on refining the skills necessary to participating in musicals as a cast member. They explore sight-reading and harmony holding and review and polish all facets of auditioning. Dance for Musical Theatre Dawn Lebrecht Fornara introduces students to a wide variety of dance styles featured in musical theater by exploring the choreography of iconic and lesserknown numbers from Broadway shows. The class includes significant work on technique and terminology to improve dance skills, physicality and confidence. We were thrilled with the response from our spring ACT program, says Craig Price, TNP education director. Students called the classes life changing.

An Evening of Opera With Opera Naples Tickets: $25 Saturday, April 21, 2018 @ 7:30pm A Tim Cavanagh comedy show takes you on an interactive ride lled with laughter, fun and over $7 in prizes! He has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, ABC, Comcast and WGN America. Tims warm style and quick wit make every show an unforgettable experience. TIM CAVANAGH Alan, who are looking forward to a new lease on life now that theyve finished raising their children. When the women all find themselves in possession of a positive pregnancy test, all three operate under the clich that they want it all. Baby is the closing production of the TheatreZone season. Mr. Danni says he likes to end things on a high note with something that is hopeful and light. Its not a show that is widely performed, especially not in Southwest Florida, but after a successful run during TheatreZones second season in 2006, he thought it was time to bring it back into circulation. For our first few seasons we only ran four performances a week, he says. Not a lot of people saw Baby back then. And it was really cute, so we brought it back. The different circumstances among the couples create a variety of situations that pull on the heartstrings. They also lead to a lot of very funny moments. The shows most poignant story is that of the couple who have been trying to conceive for a few years and are becoming discouraged. Carolann Sanita plays the part of Pam, a college basketball coach who with her husband, Nick, has been struggling to get pregnant for about two years. The challenge for her character, Ms. Sanita says, is that she equates pregnancy with womanhood, and a failure to have a baby calls back to childhood anxieties about being a tomboy. She feels this is the last step in becoming a full woman, the actress explains. Shes a basketball coach into a sporty way of life and is very fit and agile. Because of that, not being able to get pregnant is an even deeper struggle because she thinks, I live my life a certain way and Im healthy. So why isnt this happening for me? Ms. Sanita plays opposite her real-life husband, Gerritt Vandermeer, which has been an enriching experience for their own relationship, she says. Pam and Nicks struggles will ring true for any married couple, particularly when they find that they arent in the marriage simply to have children, but to be with each other. I kind of feel like when we get to work together like this its like were dating again, Ms. Sanita says. They have a duet at the end that is so sweet. I love singing it with him. I could cry each time because the words in the song are true to me. Its more touching for me as his wife because I mean those words for this particular person. Mr. Danni and Ms. Sanita both say the orchestra and ensemble players do a lot of heavy lifting to keep the musics effervescent quality intact. Between the story and the skill required of the performers, the show promises theatergoers an evening well spent. Theres a wonderful story to be heard, Mr. Danni says. Youll laugh and it will make you think. It will touch you and youll walk out singing. Its wonderful entertainment.

Real-life husband and wife Gerritt Vandermeer and Carolann Sanita play a married couple struggling with infertility in TheatreZones production of Baby. They have a duet at the end that is so sweet. I love singing it with him. I could cry each time because the words in the song are true to me. Its more touching for me as his wife because I mean those words for this particular person.

CUISINE NEWSThe Wine Store: A unique blend of curated vintages, classes and more SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThere were just two things Bruce Nichols had not experienced after almost four decades in the wine industry: being a vintner-winemaker and running his very own, brick-and-mortar wine shop. Last November, that list was shortened by half when Mr. Nichols opened The Wine Store at 1200 Central Ave. in Naples. Step inside the doors and youll find meticulously curated, limited-production, artisan-crafted wines from family-owned vineyards, worldwide, that rely on their grapes unique qualities for each vintage, rather than manipulation in the winery. Concierge-level service is provided by certified sommeliers who assist customers with making selections that harmonize with their palates. Wines can be sampled before purchase and prices range from $12 to $500 a bottle. One of the things I tell people is that just because a wine is produced by an artisan winemaker that doesnt mean it has to be expensive, Mr. Nichols says. We have 30 to 40 wines, at any given time, that are in the $20 price range. Whatever price point the customer is looking for, I can deliver the absolutely highest quality product.The Wine Stores focus on education includes: Tasting and learning opportunities for consumers and professionals. Interactive personal enrichment and professional learning experiences for novices and connoisseurs. A regularly scheduled guest-speaker program featuring vintners, master sommeliers, authors, and industry related professionals. For serious collectors, The Wine Store offers storage in its 23 secure, private, climate-controlled wine lockers. What were trying to do here is provide a full-service operation, so anything to do with the purchasing of wine, wine education and wine storage is offered under one roof, Mr. Nichols explains. His passion for wine began at age 16, in the late 1960s, when he became a waiter in a restaurant and began drinking in knowledge about vino. In the early 1970s, he moved to the San Francisco area, where he worked in restaurants and hotels, and took advantage of proximity to northern Californias wine country. His background in the hospitality industry also includes global corporate food service management. He is a past national president of the wine division of Chane des Rtisseurs, the international food and wine society; an honorary trustee of the Naples Winter Wine Festival; and the founder and owner of the consulting firm Naples Wine Solutions and the online newsletter A Nichols Worth of Wine. Originally from Philadelphia, he and his wife, Jill Backman, have been residents of North Naples since 2004.

This one is a classic. Its about two sisters who grew up on opposite sides of the world, neither one knowing of the others existence. Its about a dying mans wish, a tearful reunion and a remarkable coincidence. Well start with Robin McBride. She was born in Los Angeles, and when her parents divorced, her mother took her to live in picturesque Monterey County. She grew up with the sight of abundant grapevines stretching in every direction, and, not surprisingly, decided to make the wine business her career. Nine years later, her father, who still lived in Los Angeles, met a woman from New Zealand. They married and had a daughter, Andra. When the new Mrs. McBride was diagnosed with cancer, they decided to move to New Zealand to be closer to family. Andra grew up in Marlborough, on the north end of the South Island, which is basically the Napa Valley of New Zealand. Guess what she decided she wanted to be when she grew up? And so it went. Robin, the older sister, pursued her career in California having no contact at all with her estranged father. Andra did the same in New Zealand, never knowing she had a sister half a world away. Years later, Mr. McBride was suffering from a terminal illness, and he called upon his extensive family (he was the youngest of 12 siblings) to find his daughters and get them together. Literally, a deathbed wish, and a monumental task, since back in 1995 internet tools like searching for someone on Facebook or Googling a person were still far in the future. This is where the hand of fate taps us gently on the shoulder and quietly points the way. One of the McBride brothers, returning home from work around that time, turned on his television and happened to watch Oprah Winfrey interview whom? As destiny would have it, she had on her sofa two detectives who youd hire to track someone down if they owed you money. They were generous with information about the tools, books and other resources they used to find people who didnt necessarily want to be found. The brother got the idea, and got busy. It took a while, but he finally managed to find both sisters and put them in touch. In 1999, Robin flew from California to New York and met her longlost sister Andra at LaGuardia airport. Andra was 16, and Robin was 25. Robin remembers, I knew who she was as soon as she walked off the plane. We look so much alike, and we were even dressed the same almost. From there, nature took its inevitable course. The sisters love for wine enabled them to build whats basically a global business, sourcing wines from both California and the finest winegrowing regions of New Zealand. The McBride Sisters collection is their third venture, and it furthers their mutual goals. As Andra puts it, We want to create and distribute wines that speak to female and multicultural wine lovers. Seems like its working. I reviewed one of their ros wines in a previous column. Here are two others, along with another new favorite.McBride Sisters Collection Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 ($17) Deep yellow in the glass, on the slightly sweet side. This nicely balanced wine was fermented 50 percent in stainless steel and 50 percent in barrel. Flavors of green apple and white pear, along with white flowers. Very pleasant, especially for the price. WW 89-90.McBride Sisters Collection Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 ($15) This is not your typical Marlborough example of the varietal. Green apple, lime and grassy aromas and flavors predominate with tart subtle acidity on the finish. WW 87-88. Tom Gore Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 ($13) This valuepriced wine merits some consideration. Its an easy drinking example of the varietal, a little backward (decanting would help), containing a bold, extracted profile of mixed black fruit. WW 87.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Recently, I heard about a process used in winemaking called reverse osmosis. What is it? What does it do? A. This process, which is also used for water purification and other purposes, is a kind of filtration. Its mostly used to reduce the amount of water in wine, and make it bigger and more concentrated. In short, its often used to modify the wines flavor profile. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

Please call for pricing.Super Saver Lunch Specials $11 $9 $10 CUISINEA twisted, salty tale of love and the elusive Philly soft pretzelWhen it comes to food, Philadelphia is justifiably famous for the cheesesteak and, to a lesser degree, scrapple and Tastykakes. But to me, none of those are its most delectable creation. In the spirit of full disclosure, I confess to being born in the city and growing up 20 minutes away in the New Jersey suburbs. For most of my formative years, my father worked in Philly with his father and brother at their shared dental office at Fifth and Girard, just across the street from the national shrine of St. John Neumann. The dental office was on the first floor of a classic brownstone; my grandparents home occupied the second and third floors. My two cousins and I would often spend Saturdays there and there was one place we always went. No, not the shrine, but the little soft pretzel bakery next door where, for a nickel, you could purchase a fresh-from-the-oven pretzel that was salty and slightly crisp on the outside, soft and chewy within. There were days we made two or three trips there. I had no way of knowing then that I was experiencing the pinnacle of this wondrous creation until I had occasion to purchase them a few years later from street carts in New York and elsewhere. Thats when I discovered, to my horror, that they were cold, had the consistency of cardboard and bore no resemblance beyond their shape to the pliant, fragrant pretzels of my youth. So, I did what any self-respecting soft pretzel lover would do: I stopped eating them. Later, I discovered a chain that shall remain unnamed that advertised soft pretzels only to once again have my hopes dashed. These were fresh but more cakelike, and came in flavors such as jalapeno or cinnamon. Sacrilege, I say! Flash forward several decades. Ive been living in Southwest Florida for most of my adult life, albeit sans soft pretzels. Then a public relations person called to tell me about a new soft pretzel store opening in Naples. He does not see my skeptical eye roll as I listen to his spiel. But then I go. And I taste. And I am transported back 50 years to the bliss of my childhood as the flavor of a real, warm soft pretzel permeates my senses. That is precisely what the aptly named Philadelphia Pretzel Factory produces and dispenses daily from its location at the Galleria Shoppes off Vanderbilt Beach Road. Josie and Ed Szmuc bought the franchise in October and have been lovingly baking what are called Real Pretzels daily ever since. Mrs. Szmuc hails from Schwenksville, Pa., Mr. Szmuc from Pittsburgh. While neither is Philadelphia, Schwenksville is a mere 37 miles away and Mrs. Szmucs parents were from Philadelphia so she, too, knows from real soft pretzels. Her husband was a willing and able student who quickly caught on. The couple has a background in the oil and gas industry, Mr. Szmuc as an electrical engineer and Mrs. Szmuc as a project manager on the regulatory side of the oil and gas industry. But Pittsburgh winters were wearing on them. They decided to head south and found the pretzel franchise. This is their first foray into the food business, but they are proud and enthusiastic purists. The soft pretzel has been the same in shape and consistency for more than 100 years, Mrs. Szmuc says. The standard pretzel is our bread and b utter. And when the Philadelphia Eagles made it to the Super Bowl in February, pretzel-loving fans lined up at the stores front door hours before they opened to ensure they had soft pretzels with which to watch the big game (which the Eagles won). The line was out the door and down past Pei Weis around the corner, she says. People drove here from Tampa, Sarasota and West Palm. There are people who pick up 25 or 50 to stash in the freezer so they dont run out. (A single pretzel sells for $1.75 but theres a volume discount with 100 going for $52.) In a nod to those from other regions, the store also stocks a few other items as well. There are mini-pretzels (4 inches rather than the traditional 7 inches). And theres the Philly cheesesteak pretzel (chopped steak, provolone and mozzarella wrapped in a pretzel and baked). There are pretzels with mozzarella and pepperoni served with a side of marinara, and a Dietz and Watson beef hot dog wrapped in a pretzel. They even offer a cinnamon twist pretzel for those who simply must veer off the traditional path. But the Real Pretzel, as the original is called, is the darling. It has no trans-fat, no saturated fat and 14 grams of protein in a single pretzel, she said. The protein comes from the whey flour thats in the mix, making it something of a healthy snack. You can purchase a side of regular mustard, spicy brown or hot mustard, melted cheddar or other dipping sauces. And for those who want to feel even better about what theyre eating, consider that some of the proceeds go to a worthy cause. Mrs. Szmucs parents, children of the Great Depression, did well professionally and, in 1992, founded the Bernard W. Loeb and Dr. Bernade tte Loeb Charitable Foundation as a way to give back. They provided assistance to smaller charities focused on food insecurity and education for those who could not afford it. Now Mrs. Szmuc heads the charity now and she, too, focuses on smaller grassroots charities that run food pantries, education programs for children and that help women and girls from impoverished backgrounds. She even found a farm-to-table fresh produce food pantry in Bucks County, Pa. that needed and received her support. A Roman Catholic assisted living center and hospice that cares for indigent elderly is another of the charities she supports. For many of these groups, a $5,000 donation is life-changing, Mrs. Szmuc says. She continues to look for such groups to help, and she hopes to grow the pretzel business in order to be able to support still more good works. Thats bound to leave a great taste in anyones mouth.
