Typically a column takes me six or eight hours to write, and for very good reasons: First, I dont know what Im talking about when I begin. Second, I observe the orthodox tradition in journalism, even in opinion writing, that insists on the use of facts. And third, my wife isnt home. Shes a lot more fun to engage than my own usually suspect opinions about anything. Laying out your opinions each week is about as rewarding as staring in a mirror, for me. There is nothing in the world I would rather do less than stare in the mirror. But not out of virtue. On the contrary, Ill stare happily in any direction where beauty exists. In my case, that is not the mirror.This is different. This came to me in a dream, or at least a state of dreamy wakefulness, with its voices and instructions and worries and epiphanies. Some people call that God.I suddenly realized: These people need to be judged, not merely discussed. And Gods not here to do it yet. So Ill have to.You may know them: Donald Trump. Diane Feinstein. Michael R. Jordan. Rick Scott. Scott Pruitt. Lets not start with Mr. Trump, who delivered more than 2,000 false or misleading statements as president by the end of his first year in office alone lies fact-checked and verified as lies (its true, theyre lies) by reporters. No, lets start with one of his minions, the pastor of the New Era Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. Pastor Michael R. Jordan, you bring to mind the movie White Men Cant Jump. You put this encouraging message on the sign in front of your church, recently: Black Folks Need To Stay Out of White Churches. And, you probably figure, they need to stay out of white restrooms and restaurants. White folks need to stay out of white churches, too, pastor. Judgment: Pastor, you will hereby be remanded to the custody of an all-black chain gang singing African-American hymns along Mississippi roads in summer heat in the year 1950, where you will work naked until you repent your sins, or you turn 95, whichever comes first. This means 1950 will be a long, long, long year for you, sir. Diane Feinstein, Democratic Senator from California since 1992. Previously, you were San Francisco supervisor (1970 to 8), and mayor of San Francisco (1978-). Judgment: Sen. Feinstein, you are hereby ordered to serve 25 years doing nothing but sipping tea and nibbling cookies poolside in a country club that accepts only wealthy Republicans. You will listen carefully to what they have to say about everything, especially cars, spas, golf and tax-cuts. Then you can come back to the Senate that is, if you can learn not to tell Californians and Americans they have to have patience with Donald Trump. Rick Scott, Florida Republican governor since 2011, and now U.S. Senate candidate: In 1997, you resigned as CEO from the hospital company you founded, Columbia/HCA, during a Justice Department investigation to which your company finally pleaded guilty of fraud, settling the case for two fines amounting to $1.7 billion. While you were CEO you became very, very, very rich as your company wrongly billed Medicare, Medicaid and other programs; falsely diagnosed patients to increase payments to hospitals; pretended that marketing and advertising costs were community education and should be reimbursed; and billed the government for home health care visits to patients who didnt qualify for them. Then you won the governors race in Florida in 2010 with $75 million of your own money, before throwing in another $13 million to win a second term in 2014, leaving you at the end of last year with a paltry $150 million or so, a wealth you built from your fraudulent company, Columbia/HCA. Governor, youve denied climate change as a reality, fired hundreds of regulators and researchers who kept an eye on our degrading environment and water, and allowed it to degrade even further. Judgment: You are hereby remanded to the custody of the Kansas City doughnut shop you founded at the beginning of your career to wash the grease each evening from the doughnut deep fryers while earning minimum wage which you have helped keep low until you pay back American taxpayers and Columbia/HCA stockholders for the billions they lost during your tenure as CEO. Scott Pruitt, chief of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and formerly attorney general of Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain: Mr. Pruitt, you have worked assiduously to cut regulations that prevent cars, trucks and coal-burning factories from pouring out more toxins; you have labored to bring fricking fracking to public lands and public lands into fricking private hands. Judgment: You are hereby ordered to sit naked, tied to a tree, in Bears Ears National Monument in southern Utah until you have personally apologized to 15 or 20 hungry bears for not resisting the move to drill for oil in their backyard. Or until the year 2100, whichever comes first. Donald Trump, 45th president of these United States: Enough said. Judgment: For everything you have done, especially that thing with your orange hair, you are hereby remanded to the custody of NASA officials, who will launch you into intergalactic space by next week so America can become the first nation to claim a manned mission not just to Mars, but to the stars. Make America Great Again! My judgment is rendered. Go forth and sin no more. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Over the past several months, Trump has boxed in Kim Jong Un. First, he ramped up economic pressure on Pyongyang while making clear that, unlike his predecessors, he was willing to take military action. Yet when Kim offered to meet face-to-face, Trump shocked everyone (probably including Kim) by reportedly accepting on the spot. Instead of rejecting the offer, or using it as a bargaining chip to elicit concessions, Trump said yes and put the two nations on a faster track to nuclear negotiations than anyone had anticipated. Then, the president began shaping the parameters of an agreement starting with making clear what kind of deal he would not cut. The North Koreans want a nuclear deal like the one President Barack Obama gave to Iran: sanctions relief up front, billions of dollars in cash, a weak inspection regime and sunset clauses on the back end. By withdrawing from the Iran deal last week, Trump sent Pyongyang a crystal-clear message: I dont cut deals like that. He then used his senior officials to lay out the parameters of the kind of accord he would cut. Kim wants to get paid for the promise of denuclearization. Appearing on Face the Nation, national security adviser John Bolton played the bad cop and explained that that is not happening. Trump will only pay for actual denuclearization. The president, Bolton said, is looking for a manifestation of the strategic decision to give up nuclear weapons (that) doesnt have to be the same as Libya but its got to be something concrete and tangible it may be that Kim Jong Un has some ideas and we should hear him out. While Bolton set expectations for denuclearization, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo played the good cop and held out the twin carrots of security and prosperity if Kim agrees. If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearize, Pompeo said, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on par with our South Korean friends. That stunning offer is deeply destabilizing for Kim. If he goes to a summit with Trump and refuses to accept a deal that provides his country with prosperity on par with South Korea, then he can no longer blame the West for the misery of the North Korean people. In other words, Trump and his national security team have put Kim in a corner, offering him peace, security and prosperity, but only if he first denuclearizes completely, verifiably and irreversibly. Little wonder that North Korea is lashing out. Kim might be looking for a pretext to get out of his meeting with Trump, and the military exercises provide a perfect excuse. He may also be testing Trump to see how badly he wants the summit. Or he may be trying to drive a wedge between the United States and South Korea in advance of the talks. He knows South Korean President Moon Jae-in is deeply invested in his Sunshine Policy with Pyongyang. If the North threatens a little rain, perhaps the South which desperately wants the summit will pressure Trump to cancel the military exercises or be more flexible at the bargaining table. Trump needs to show Kim that he wont respond to threats by refusing to call off the exercises. Through back channels, he needs to reaffirm his willingness to provide North Korea with security and prosperity in exchange for immediate denuclearization but also make clear that if North Korea refuses, the alternative is not the status quo. Sanctions will be ramped up, and military action is possible. Above all, Trump should take North Koreas recent outburst as a signal that Pyongyang is feeling the heat. A cornered animal roars, precisely because it is cornered. Stand firm, Mr. President, and dont let up the pressure. Donald Trumps Jerusalem triumphIn the second century A.D., Jewish rebels who had stunned the Romans and liberated a portion of Judea overstruck imperial coins with images and a message of their own, Year One of the Redemption of Jerusalem. The leader of the Jewish rebellion, Bar Kokhba, was fired by a vision of a united Israel with Jerusalem as its capital, which had been the exception during the prior millennium, thanks to the depredations of the Assyrians and Babylonians, among others. But such was the power of the national idea and his messianic zeal that Bar Kokhba ventured all on regaining it. And lost. Not for nearly another 2,000 years would the vision come to fruition. At a ceremony in 1982 burying bones of some of those long-ago rebels with military honors, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin declared: Israel and Judea are reborn. We have redeemed Jerusalem. King David conquered the city in 1000 BC and made it the capital of the kingdom of Israel. His son Solomon built the First Temple. But Jerusalem would repeatedly be captured and the Temple destroyed (first by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and then by the Roman Emperor Titus). The Jewish people never forgot. In one of the miracles of our age, after long centuries of exile punctuated by genocide at the hands of the Nazis, they re-established Israel in 1948, and then gained control of all of Jerusalem in 1967 (prior to that, when Jordan held East Jerusalem, Jews couldnt visit the Western Wall). The notion that the City of David isnt the capital of Israel was an impolite fiction, honored by the U.S. and the West for fear of provoking Arabs hostile to the very idea of the Jewish state. Its prime minister, parliament and highest court are based there, and its unimaginable that Israel would ever agree to any peace deal that didnt recognize it as the capital. The tired, conventional arguments against it havent held up well in the wake of President Donald Trumps decision to move our embassy. The Arab street hasnt exploded. The West Bank has been relatively quiet. Arab capitals havent erupted in outrage. The flashpoint has been in Gaza, the terror statelet ruled by Hamas. Israel pulled out of Gaza more than a decade ago and has been rewarded with constant attacks emanating from a territory where the infrastructure of mayhem and destruction rockets, tunnels and the like is the only growth industry. Hamas has goaded rioters to storm the Israeli border, defended by Israeli soldiers who fire on them if necessary to protect local communities (more than 50 were killed on a recent Monday). This isnt the caravan that arrived at the U.S. border with peaceful migrants seeking asylum, but a violent provocation that is a function of Hamas commitment to Israels destruction. For now, that poisonous ambition looks more fantastical than ever. Trumps move is an acknowledgment of reality. It is also a symbolic statement of permanence, that Menachem Begin was correct when he said at the ceremony for the Bar Kokhba rebels 36 years ago, Glorious fathers, we are back and we will not budge from here. mark THEISSENWashington Post rich LOWRYKing Features

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Andy and Joe are deeply rooted in Southwest Florida, each working for decades in this community. The pair will be based out of 239.405.6742 239.405.6741 Fort Myers Bonita Springs Charleston Estero Naples Palm Beach Scottsdale GUEST OPINIONThe high cost of surviving BY DAVE TRECKERHow much is a life worth? What about a pain-free life? How much is just surviving worth? A dollar amount cant be affixed to any of those, because in our society health is considered inviolate. And it should be. But when life-saving or life-extending medicines are discovered, we are quick to dollarize their value and complain when we feel their prices are too high. We are entitled to health, but loathe to pay for it. New Drugs Inflict Sticker Shock, the headline reads. And so the cause of the day until hurricanes or war or the next election displaces it is to beat down what are considered usurious drug prices. President Trump wants to get tough on the drug makers. The Democrats decry pharmas monopoly power and abuse. While we would never stand for price controls on home construction, trucks or underwear, the free market goes out the window when it comes to medicine. We set boundaries on the cost of survival. What caused this brouhaha? Several things, all involving progress: Advances in small-market disease treatment. Breakthroughs in high-value cancer medication. And remarkable progress in personalized genetic medicine. Those advances come with hefty price tags. For full treatment regimens, Gilead Science charges $373,000 for Yescarta (lymphoma) and $84,000 for Solvaldi (hepatitis C). Novartis lists a new cell therapy (lymphoma) for $475,000. Spark Therapeutics charges $850,000 for Luxturna (retinal dystrophy). A big contributor to these prices is the attendant treatment costs. You dont just pop a pill. For Yescartas gene-based therapy, a patients own immune cells must be extracted, modified and reinjected. A two-week hospital stay is not unusual. Its groundbreaking science, and its very expensive. But its not just the exotic treatments that are costly. Drug prices in general have been rising. A panel from the National Academy of Sciences recently issued a scathing report claiming Consumer access to effective and affordable medicines is an imperative that is not being served by the biopharmaceutical enterprise today. Drugs are just too expensive. Perhaps. But lets be clear on one thing. Medicines dont fall from the sky. They are discovered, tested and developed at great cost. Back in the day, the litany was it took an average of 11 years and a cost in excess of $1 billion to bring a drug to market. And only one in ten that entered clinical testing made it to the finish line. Now the clinical trial success rate is almost 14 percent, but the cost of development is a staggering $2.6 billion, according to Tuft Universitys Center for the Study of Drug Development. Between 1989 and 2011, the cost per patient of a clinical trial more than doubled. And its even higher today. Make no mistake; the drug game is a costly, high-risk enterprise. A few winners have to pay for many, many losers. To hedge bets, drug companies are acquiring and merging. Acquiring candidates already discovered, but not yet developed, and merging with smaller firms that offer specialized skills. This cuts research and development risk, but adds even more to drug cost. In spite of these hurdles, big pharma continues to deliver. In 2017, the U.S. drug industry caulked up the most FDA approvals in 20 years. Forty-six new molecular entities were cleared for marketing, covering indications from Parkinsons to Type 2 diabetes. What about the killer prices? Some progress is being made. The Trump administration plans to begin a national dialogue, floating ideas like allowing importation of lower-cost drugs from overseas, letting Medicare negotiate directly with drug makers and increasing rebates and discounts for Medicare enrollees. To spur competition for generics, the FDA is offering incentives to manufacture 319 off-patent medicines. And a study is underway to evaluate how drug prices might be pegged to performance. How, for example, do you quantify Viagras effectiveness? Another idea is to extend patent lifetimes, allowing drug makers to lower prices while recouping costs over a longer period. Still another idea is to fasttrack FDA review for a wider range of candidates. None of these measures is free. Incentives and rebates take taxpayer money. Faster approvals require a bigger FDA. Expanded oversight of any kind means more bureaucracy. But no matter how this plays out, the one thing we mustnt do is kill the goose that laid the golden egg. The U.S. pharmaceutical industry is the best in the world. Its scientific advances are legendary. Its productivity in terms of lives saved or extended simply cannot be measured. You cant put a price tag on human life. A Ph.D. chemist, Naples resident Dave Trecker retired as a senior vice president at Pfizer. He serves on a number of local boards.

PLAN APPROPRIATELY. EXECUTE EFFICIENTLY. COVELLIDEVELOPMENT GROUP CDG LUXURY HOME BUILDING AND REMODEL SERVICES our commitment to excellence and quality A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELNissans new Armada is on patrolIts the beginning of rainy season in South Florida, and anyone who has ever encountered a well-worn mud trail has probably thought about a 4x4 SUV like this Nissan Armada. The second-generation Armada has been with us for about a year now. Its not a new design, but its new to us. This Armada is the Patrol SUV sold elsewhere on the international market. People who know 4x4 history will be excited about this news. The Nissan Patrol is as well regarded in the international community as the Toyota Land Cruiser. The USA had an early opportunity to buy these offroad Jeep-like machines when Nissan/ Datsun first appeared on our shores in the 1960s. After they stopped importing the Patrol, it followed a similar path of the Land Cruiser where it grew in size, but never lost the 4x4 ability that made them a go-to for the international community, including the United Nations relief vehicles. To bring that vehicle here gives the new Armada an instant respect that its Titan-based predecessor didnt earn. While the new Armada looks nearly identical to the Patrol that has been available elsewhere in the world, its distinct enough to carve out its own space in our market. It has the tall and boxy stance that is good for a truck-like SUV, and the rear pillar has the kind of thick curve that BMW uses to show power. The only vehicle that looks similar is the Infiniti QX80, because its the Armadas upmarket sibling. Inside, there are more premium connections to the Infiniti with nice standard features like an 8-inch touchscreen, woodgrain materials on the dash and separate climate controls for the driver, passenger and rear. Plus, as a tall three-row SUV, theres the underlying luxury of having enough headroom to make the driver feel like he/she owns air space. This SUV needs to feel premium, because the base rear-wheel drive model starts at $47,385. A leather-clad top-of-the-line Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve with full-time four-wheel drive costs about $67K. Thats about where the pricing begins for the slightly more powerful and more prestigious Infiniti QX80 4x4, so the overlap is minimal. Where the Armada is going to find the most competition is with the capable SUVs from mainstream nameplates. The Chevrolet Tahoe offers similar interior features, and its dimensions inside and out are within a few inches of the Nissan. The base price difference is even less than $1,000. The 394 horsepower 5.6-liter motor is the Armadas big advantage. Its a multivalve V8 with dual overhead camshafts and variable valve timing. What this means in the real world is it has a big V8 grunt when needed for work duty, as well as decent acceleration in low-speed city traffic. The Chevy has a smaller 5.3-liter as standard, but its lighter. It also has a larger V8 available in top trim levels that outprice the Armada. We had mentioned the Toyota Land cruiser as a historic competitor, but today, the Armada price tops out about $16K before the Land Cruiser even begins. The multi-link rear suspensions in the Toyota and Chevy are a solid axle thats often preferred for hauling large items, but the Armada actually has a slightly larger towing capacity. And its independent rear suspension is a favorite for those who spend more time on the road. Other IRS competition out there includes the Ford Expedition. That one can be optioned to have the largest towing capacity around, but not everyone likes its 3.5liter EcoBoost V6. Does all this competition start to feel confusing? It certainly is, because these larger SUVs are bought by people who need to dial in the right mix of towing toys, going off-road, and carrying a basketball team worth of passengers. The new Nissan Armada rides in the middle of this class with decent power, size, and capability all as standard. The few options it does offer are more about dialing up the level of luxury with multiple trim levels. So, the salespeople at the Nissan lot probably wont have as many questions for you as Ford or Chevy. But theyll be able to talk about a history to rival the Land Cruiser, while offering more value-minded pricing. Its a fine line to walk, but selling capability in the rainy season should be easy. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

LAID BACK ON SANIBEL ISLANDNOTHING SAYS A RELAXED VACATION LIKE A barefoot beach cottage. Give that swimsuit a quick check to make sure our salty environment hasnt totally sprung the elastic. Now pack it and go. Thats all you will basically need, but of course youre going to schlepp along boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, a ton of sunscreen, a good beach hat and some casual go-out-toeat duds. Beach cottages are the ultimate Sanibel staycation, and you can find a complete selection. Some, such as Castaways Beach & Bay Cottages at Blind Pass, scatter accommodations both beachside and across the road. Whats sweet about opting for non-gulfside at Castaways: easy access to the propertys old-Florida marina perfect for fishing types. Fully furnished, self-catering cottages range from one to three bedrooms. Through Oct. 31 the property is offering a fourth night free. As a guest of the Sanibel Captiva Beach Resort group, which includes Castaways and Tween Waters Inn Island Resort, nearby on Captiva Island, you also receive a valuable coupon booklet for drinks, meals, gifts, spa services and other perks. If youd rather flip-flop it to dinner, restaurants as casual as Lazy Flamingo and as fine-fared as the Mad Hatter are easy to walk to. Spend your days at Castaways fishing, boating, beaching and soaking up the healing sea waters. Fishing charters and boat rentals are available from the resort, or cast off the Blind Pass bridge, where the waters flush out bait fish and the fish chasing them. In the wake of summer storms, this is THE place to catch some surfing waves. Mitchells SandCastles and Forty/ Fifteen Resorts also provides the option of beachfront or more affordable cottages within easy walking distance to the beach. Your schlepping list just got shorter: It provides guests with free use of kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, tennis racquets, two pools and bikes and helmets. Ten classic cottage-style accommodations sleep up to six. Grab a bike and head down Sanibels 25 miles of shared-use paths to go shopping on Periwinkle Way or exploring the environment at the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife on Sanibel-Captiva Road. A short bike ride from Mitchells, Sandbar Restaurant serves seafood and steak for dinner.

On the way, stop for refreshment at any number of resort and other beach restaurants and bars such as Tuckaway Cafe for breakfast and Lani Kai Island Resort for beachside partying that starts with DJ music at 1 p.m. All of this without leaving the beach, unless you opt to drive the four miles to Times Square. Restaurants around the pedestrian square range from al fresco pizza joints to a Greek caf and seafood havens where the local pink shrimp rules. Jutting out from the beach, the 600-foot Fort Myers Beach Fishing Pier anchors the plaza at the beach. Wet a line or hire a parasail ride for a sky-high view of the island. Lynn Hall Memorial Park appeals to families with its playground and gentle waves. Keep walking the beach northward to reach Bowditch Point Park, a natural beach with trails to hike at the islands end. Catch some rays and watch the boat traffic coming in and out of the pass.

Restaurants named Marker 92 Waterfront Bar & Bistro and the al fresco Nauti Mermaid Dockside Bar & Grill continue the seafaring theme with views of the marina. Nearby in the Marina Village, Gather is a new dining sensation. Landside, Esterra Spa & Salon, three swimming pools, cabana rentals at the main pool, a fitness center, a kids club, tennis, bike and kayak rentals, a nature trail and shopping round out a staycation that is equal parts plush and salty. DELIGHTFULLY STRANDED ON PALM ISLANDA morning beach stroll on Palm Island during a busy summer weekend: one yoga-stretcher, one snowy egret and one green heron shyly hiding back in the dunes and sea grasses. A quick car-ferry boat ride off the Placida mainland, Palm Island Resort takes getaway to a new, more secluded level. (You can also arrive by private boat to the resorts docks.) Claiming two miles of beach within its confines, the resort attaches to Knight Island, Don Pedro Island and Little Gasparilla Island to the south for a total of 7 miles, if youre so inclined to walk that far. (The dredging of the Intracoastal Waterway in 1964 filled in the passes between the various isles to create one long, continuous flow.) By foot, bicycle or golf cart is the way to get around the resort, because guests are required to park their cars outside the gate. Kayaks and powerboats are other ways to travel, and the resort rents both. Its privately owned island villas and cottages are set up for families and long stays with full kitchens, one to three bedrooms and lots of spreading-out space. Five swimming pools and whirlpools, two playgrounds and 11 tennis courts mean uncrowded recreation. For the kids, Red Beard the Pirate leads family shows, story times and crafts. Tennis competitions, scavenger hunts and fishing and boating charters fill hours not spent lazing on the wide, soft beach and playing in the gentle waves. The islands main dining venue, Rum Bay Restaurant, serves lunch and dinner at remarkably reasonable rates, considering its the only game on the island, other than ultra-casual Coconuts Cafe. Baby back ribs and Hawaiian shrimp and pineapple fajitas are signature dishes at Rum Bay. Its congenial bar and competent staff make this the hub of island social life. Another resort restaurant, Leverocks, lies a short boat shuttle away on the resorts mainland component, where there are more villas for vacationers to rent. Allotted a free round-trip ferry pass, guests too may want to consider a short drive to historic Boca Grande for dining, shopping and sightseeing for a day. Currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, Palm Island Resort offers a special $35 off rooms and golf cart rentals per night through June 15. A twonight minimum applies; and the offer is subject to availability. Guests can add on lunch for two for $35 plus tax and gratuity. FAMILY BONDING ON CAPTIVA ISLANDA destination all its own, South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island fulfills every childs vacation fantasy. Gated from the rest of the world at the far reaches of the island, it provides opportunity to spend family time without lifes intrusions.

GOLF MECCA NAPLESNaples counts among the nations top destinations for golf and was recently voted by USA Today readers at number five on the 10 Best Golf Destinations in the World list. You could in theory golf a different course in the Naples area every day of summer. In practicality, you may find it more rewarding to spend a vacation at one golf resort. The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort makes a good case for such a strategy. The resort includes Tiburn Golf Club, which offers two award-winning 18-hole courses designed by Greg Norman. Through Aug. 30, the resort offers three packages with accommodations and unlimited same-day continuous golfing. In addition to the long list of deluxe amenities the golf resort avails, guests are given access and may shuttle to the beach, restaurants, spa and other facilities and services at The Ritz-Carlton Naples beach resort. To celebrate that hole-in-one, make reservations at The Grill, the beach resorts fine steak and seafood restaurant. (Note: The Ritz-Carlton Naples beach resort will be closed June 25 through Sept. 3 for exterior restoration.) In contrast to the luxury and glamor of the Ritz, the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club wears an air of relaxed, classic golf vacationing. Opened in 1946 as one of Floridas first golf resorts, it recently completed a $50 million renovation of its 18-hole, par-71 golf course. The renovation was led by Jack Nicklaus, which is fitting since he golfed the course as a youth and broke his own record there. Naples Beach Hotel combines the best of all staycationing worlds with a beach at its front door, a golf course at its back, and restaurants, swimming pools, a spa and tennis courts in between. From June 4 through Sept. 30 the resort offers a Stay 2 Nights and the 3rd Night is Free promotion. Apres-game, plan on sunset cocktails at Sunset Beach Bar & Grill followed by a seafood dinner at HBs on the Gulf.SUNSET CENTRALWe have the west coast advantage here in Southwest Florida: We get to watch Ol Sols final curtain call each evening with the promise of a green flash and orange parfait afterglows. Three of our favorite vantage points hail from the shores of Collier County, with restaurant and guestroom views from beach-level to soaring vistas that are dizzying with beauty. JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, which in the past couple of years has undergone a major renovation and rebranding from its original Marriott status, favors guests with two beach restaurants in tropical motif. Quinns on the Beach greets sunset each evening with a fire dancer show. Or celebrate sunset with a rum flight at Kane Tiki Bar & Grill. In the past few years, the property has upgraded to its JW branding via a $320 million makeover and expansion. New, fashion-forward restaurants, accommodation enhancements and a spa facelift have been completed. Still in the works: a new adults-only accommodations tower with a celebrity chef (to be announced) rooftop restaurant. Guests can receive a $50 nightly resort credit for rooms booked by May 31 for stays before July 31. Naples Grande Beach Resort lives up to its promise of grandeur with a side of sunset. Watch it from the Clam Pass Park beach, at the end of the resorts boardwalk through the mangroves. To see it from your accommodations, book on floors six and higher. The signature gulf view guestrooms, on floors 12 through 18, present the best views. Closed through Dec. 14 following Hurricane Irma, Naples Grande emerged with a refreshed look in its garden villas and the new pan-Asian Mantra lobby restaurant. Year-round, the resort offers Florida residents 20 percent off nightly rates, which translates into prices as low as $167 per night from June through August, and $135 in September. Northernmost, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort introduces you to the beach at ground level and its uber-romantic BALEEN restaurant, where you can even order up a toes-in-the-sand table-fortwo, waterside. Newly renovated, its lobby draws you into the waterfront bar and out to its grotto pool, bar and grill and Thai-inspired spa all at sea level. Its 15-floor Gulf Tower boutiquestyle accommodations include eight onebedroom suites with whirlpool tubs that have a view of sunset the perfect time and place for a little bubbly. The Beach House holds guestrooms at sand level, while the six-floor Bay Tower presents different waterfront views. LaPlaya offers discounts of 5 to 20 percent (based on supply and demand) to Florida residents with valid identification. Its website also lists a number of special golf, sea turtle season, wellness and other packages. STAYCATIONFrom page 15COURTESY PHOTONaples Beach Hotel & Golf Club.

Dubbed Rethinking Photography: Analogue Experience in the Digital Age, the lecture will be preceded with wine and appetizers beginning at 5:30 p.m., with the lecture slated to begin at 6 p.m. The Naples Art Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and advancing education, interest and participation in the visual arts in Southwest Florida. The upcoming lecture coincides with their mission; Mr. Jones will discuss his unique outlook on how photography should be viewed by enthusiasts and experts alike moving into the age of new technology. From its inception photography was never a single, unified practice, Mr. Jones said of his views. Instead, it has always been a continuously evolving set of aesthetics and ideas in dialog with technology. His lecture will be followed with questions and answers. There is a $10 voluntary donation at the door and the event is free of charge for Naples Art Association contributors. As associate curator of photography at The Ringling Museum of Art, Mr. Jones oversees photography, new media and the works on paper collection. Since arriving at The Ringling in 2012, he has curated many exhibitions for The Ringlings photography program, including Territories: Photography, Space, and Power; Builder Levy: Appalachia USA; Unfamiliar Realities; In the Streets: Photographing Urban Spaces; and Witness to War for which he received the 2013 Outstanding New Professional Award from the Florida Association of Museums. Prior to the Ringling, Mr. Jones was assistant curator of prints of photographs at the University of New Mexico Art Museum, where he co-curated exhibitions such as Altered Landscapes: Photography since the Sixties, and The New Worlds Old World: Photographic Views of Ancient America. He has also worked as an art collections manager for galleries and artists estates. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Florida in the history of photography, and received his master of arts from the University of New Mexico in modern and contemporary Art. The Naples Art Association is located at 585 Park Street in downtown Naples and is open to the public at no charge from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday (Monday through Friday from May through October).

Just ask 12-year-old Naples resident Frazar Henry, who received the Morton Gould Young Composer Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers earlier this year, according to Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers. The Mastersingers Festival Orchestra premiered his winning work, In Exordium for orchestra, in April 2017. Mr. Henry studies music composition with Dr. Jason Bahr, himself an accomplished composer and the bass section leader of the Mastersingers. According to the ASCAP website, this national award is given based on the significance and overall artistry and compositional elements of the musical work The competition is only open to composers who have not yet reached their 30th birthday. At age 12, Mr. Henry was the youngest winner this year. Jeff Faux, artistic director of the Mastersingers, described the origin of the piece. Last season our focus was The Future of Music. We added to our organization the City of Palms Youth Choirs, and our big performance was the world premiere of Jason (Bahr)s Symphony No 2. As Frazar is a student of Jason, we thought this was the perfect occasion to include a new work by him. I am thrilled to see Frazar receive such a significant honor for this piece, Mr. Faux said of the award. It was a joy to study the work, conduct it and to share it with our audiences. There is surely more great work to come from this young man. I am so lucky to have support from people like Jeff (Faux) and the Mastersingers who gave me the amazing opportunity to compose a piece for full orchestra, Mr. Henry said of his work. Its not something I get to do everyday. Without Jeff, Jason (Bahr) and the Mastersingers, I would not have earned such a great award for my composition. Im very proud of him, said Mr. Bahr of his student. He is quite a talent and this award is well-deserved. Although the Future of Music season has ended, the Mastersingers continue to support new music with the initiation of the Sanibel-Captiva Trust Prize in Choral Composition. This national competition seeks out newly composed music for choir. The winning work will be performed by the Mastersingers in their 2018-19 season, and the winning composer will be present for the performance.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY one will don her uniform and represent the band of sisters who served their country at more than 120 bases across the United States. Of course, Im extremely honored to have been chosen, Mrs. Haydu said, noting that the uniform she will wear belonged to another WASP member, as hers has been on display at the Smithsonian Institutions National Air and Space Museum since 1969. Im kind of a little overwhelmed at all of the honors that are being given. In 2009, President Barack Obama signed a bill into law honoring the Women Airforce Service Pilots with a Congressional Gold Medal. Mrs. Haydu was in the Oval Office to witness the signing. In 2014, she accepted the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award by the Federal Aviation Administration for achieving 50 years of flying experience. She has 54. In 2015, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Flushing, N.Y., presented her with an honorary doctoral degree. She sported a cap and gown and tossed her tassel. It brings to light who we were, and what we did. We were not a really wellknown secret. The biggest honor of them all precedes the others by decades. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter approved legislation recognizing all who belonged to the WASP as veterans 33 years after Congress dissolved the program. She led the effort. We all anticipated being able to stay in service, and here we were being pushed out. We wanted to serve our country, but we wanted to serve it as pilots.WASPs beginningsAfter the attack on Pearl Harbor, pilots were in short supply. Not only were they needed to fight the war but also deliver advanced trainer planes to flight schools in the South. Twentyeight female aviators volunteered to take those ferrying jobs, forming the countrys initial WASP squadron. More than 1,000 would join the program during its two-year lifespan, operating out of Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas. They flew every aircraft in the arsenal. In addition to ferrying, they towed gunnery targets, transported equipment and shuttled nonflying personnel to points of destination, as well as flight-tested aircraft that had undergone repairs. Seven months of take-offs and landings were required for the women to get their wings. I guess the hardest things were the check rides, Mrs. Haydu said. That was the worst part because, naturally, you get very nervous, and you hope youre giving them a good ride so you get a passing grade. The battle to succeed was an uphill one. A lot of the men did not want women flying airplanes. This was their thing.Hooked on flyingThe Montclair, N.J., native, who grew up during the Great Depression, graduated from high school in 1938 and financially was unable to go to college. She landed a job as a secretary instead. Bored and always feeling very sorry for myself, she decided to attend night school and enrolled in an aviation course. Then she took a flying lesson. I loved it. I was just hooked the first time I was up in the air. She obtained her private pilots license in Martins Creek, Pa. Following her service in the WASP, she returned to New Jersey, became a flight instructor, part owner of a flight school and eventually ran a Cessna dealership with her late husband, Joseph, also a pilot. The couple moved to Florida in the late 1970s and throughout the years owned 14 different types of singleand twinengine planes. We would fly to California. We would fly to the Bahamas for a game of golf and come back the same day. She quit driving last year after injuring her arm in a fall from a treadmill. But that does not seem to have slowed her down. She spends her time speaking to the nations youth and enlightening them about her lifes work, which includes authoring Letters Home: 1944-1945, a book that chronicles her time in the WASP through the letters she wrote to her mother while on duty. I love to talk to these young people. I tell them, If you have a desire to do something, go ahead and pursue it. Dont let them say girls dont fly. Just dont listen to them. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep right on going.

As we innovate, we continue to protect resources dedicated to quality care and fight to preserve the coverage gains vital to keeping our communities healthy. This thought was shared last week at the annual Washington, D.C., meeting by Rick Pollack, president and CEO of the American Hospital Association, of which I am privileged to be a board member. NCH was recognized for its careful preparation and robust response to disasters, with Hurricane Irma as our most recent challenge. As such, I was given the honor of chairing a panel where leaders from Sunrise Hospital, LBJ Hospital, and Santa Rosa Regional Hospital shared their responses to a hail of bullets, a deluge of flooding, and an inferno of fire, respectively, followed by comments from the assistant secretary of health and human services who emphasized how important collaboration is to minimize the effects of catastrophes.

Advanced Practice Professional Vanessa Russino, Nurse Physician Partnership Dr. Tamara Rodriguez and Nurse Leader of the Year Kristin Miller were also awarded for excellence by their colleagues. Florida Sen. Kathleen Passidomo attended the event and shared her thoughts and warm wishes mid-week, noting that with one voice we can have a powerful impact on policy and change at the legislative level. The senior team interacted in many forums on both campuses focusing on making decisions together.

Published in Fertility and Sterility, the study also linked a class of antidepressants known as non-selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors to a higher risk of early pregnancy loss among females being treated for infertility. SSRIs, another class of antidepressants, were not linked to pregnancy loss. Neither depression in the female partner nor use of any other class of antidepressant were linked to lower pregnancy rates. Our study provides infertility patients and their physicians with new information to consider when making treatment decisions, said study author Dr. Esther Eisenberg of the Fertility and Infertility Branch at NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which funded the study. Citing previous studies, the authors noted that 41 percent of women seeking fertility treatments have symptoms of depression. In addition, a study of men seeking IVF treatments found that nearly 50 percent experienced depression. The authors conducted the current study to evaluate the potential influence of depression in couples seeking non-IVF treatments. The researchers combined data from two previous studies funded by NICHDs Reproductive Medicine Network. One study compared the effectiveness of two ovulationinducing drugs for establishment of pregnancy and live birth in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. The other study compared the effectiveness of three ovulation-inducing drugs at achieving pregnancy and live birth in couples ith unexplained infertility. In each study, men and women responded to a questionnaire designed to screen for depression. Only the women were asked whether they were taking any antidepressants.From the two studies, the researchers analyzed data for 1,650 women and 1,608 men. Among the women, 5.96 percent were rated as having active major depression, compared to 2.28 percent of the men.Women using non-SSRIs were roughly 3.5 times as likely to have a first trimester pregnancy loss, compared to those not using antidepressants. Couples in which the male partner had major depression were 60 percent less likely to conceive and have a live birth than those in which the male partner did not have major depression. The study did not include couples who underwent in vitro fertilization because the authors thought that this procedure could potentially overcome some possible effects of depression, such as reduced sexual desire and lower sperm quality. Depression is one of the most prevalent and treatable mental disorders and is regularly seen by a wide spectrum of health care providers, including mental health specialists, medical and surgical subspecialists and primary care clinicians.

Professor Rebekah Maggor was displeased, however, and asked Chai, Is that really what you would wear?

Chai left the room, but soon returned wearing just her bra and panties and delivered the entirety of her presentation.

PET TALESTop pet traumas BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationOur dogs and cats hate to let us know when theyre not feeling well. Its instinctive for them to hide illness and even injuries if possible. Some emergencies are obvious, though, and an emergency, by definition, requires immediate treatment. Any time your pet experiences one of the following conditions, you need to get him to the veterinarian on the double, whether its noon or nighttime, weekend or holiday. Hit by car. Even if your pet appears to be OK, he could have serious internal injuries. Falling out a high window. Cats have a reputation for surviving high falls, but that doesnt mean they dont sustain injuries. Blood gushing from an artery or bleeding from the mouth, nose or rectum. Loss of consciousness. Difficulty breathing, which can indicate choking, poisoning or heart failure. Sudden collapse or paralysis. Bloody vomiting or diarrhea. Broken bones, difficulty walking or reluctance to put weight on a limb. Gums that are pale instead of a healthy pink. Seizures, tremors or staggering, which can indicate poisoning or neurological problems. Known ingestion of antifreeze, Easter lilies, rat poison, items containing xylitol or other toxic substances. Some pets are more prone to certain types of emergencies than others. Cats, for instance, love to nibble on plants and can develop fatal kidney failure from eating any part of a lily, even small amounts of pollen. In male cats, straining to urinate can signal an obstructed urinary tract. When that happens, toxins build up quickly and can kill the cat if the blockage isnt relieved rapidly. Cats who strain to defecate should also be seen right away. Dogs, especially males but sometimes females, can also develop urinary obstructions from bladder stones or prostate disease. Breeds at higher risk include Dalmatians, bulldogs and black Russian terriers. An enlarged stomach accompanied by drooling, panting and retching without bringing anything up is a sign of gastric dilatation volvulus, commonly known as bloat and often seen in deep-chested dogs. Never wait and see if your dog shows these signs. Dogs are notorious for eating anything they run across, which leaves them open to ingesting toxic foods and pharmaceuticals. Take your dog in if he eats grapes or raisins, fungi such as mushrooms or toadstools, dark chocolate, any food containing the sweetener xylitol, or drugs such as Tylenol, nasal spray or eye drops. Another common pet emergency is severe vomiting and diarrhea accompanied by appetite loss. Those signs may be early indicators of life-threatening disease or gastrointestinal obstruction. Pets left untreated, especially cats or toy-breed dogs, can quickly become weak and dehydrated. Pets with flat faces such as bulldogs, pugs and Persian cats are prone to heatstroke. If these pets are restless, have a rapid pulse, have trouble breathing or are panting or drooling, its an emergency. Cat and dog breeds such as Maine coons, ragdolls, Persians, American shorthairs and cavalier King Charles spaniels are at risk for congestive heart failure. Signs include unusual inactivity, tiring quickly, restlessness, panting, difficulty breathing, crackly breathing sounds and pale gums. A pet who has trouble walking may have a spinal cord injury. Dogs or cats with long backs such as dachshunds or munchkins are susceptible to ruptured intervertebral disks. If your pet experiences an emergency, the best thing you can do is to stay calm in the moment. Have your veterinarians phone number and that of the nearest emergency clinic on speed dial, and call to let them know youre on the way and what the problem is. Most important, know your pets normal behavior. Noticing changes early can help you catch problems before they turn into emergencies. Many foods and over-the-counter medications that humans can take safely can be dangerous or fatal to pets.

Some folks in colder climates get SAD as winter approaches I get SAD as summer starts to rear her hot, humid, dank head like a heavy, slimy Medusa from the bathwater-warm, salty, brown Gulf of Mexico. I struggle with it every year (Ive been in Southwest Florida for over 40) and every year, I vow it will be different. I try to force myself into embracing the heat and reveling in the humidity, but it never works. By August, Im a miserable, melted, old crone using up so much of my energy to be angry at, of all things, the weather. But, a few days ago, a good friend who used to live here and now lives in Tennessee texted me, Ill bet the poinciana trees are starting to bloom. I miss them so much! Im feeling homesick will you send me a picture? And sure enough, later that day, as I was driving around my neighborhood, I looked up and there they were those fabulous, flaming scarlet petals starting to spread across the edge of the trees branches. Some of the poinciana trees I noticed were thick and fluffy with vibrant flowers. Others were scant but getting there fast. Poinciana season, though brief, is just beginning. I snapped a photo for my friend. A few days before, when I was complaining about the heat on Facebook, another friend made me think of it differently. She wrote: If you spent much of your earlier life in a state that could at times take your breath away with the cold, freezing your nose hair and rendering you a clenched mass of protoplasm, you could embrace the humidity and find it a comforting cloak. Usually when I bitch about the heat, friends tell me to get over it or ask me, then why do you live here? But, the idea of the humidity being a comfortable cloak was intriguing menopause notwithstanding, could I try to feel the heat differently? I dug out my old DVD copy of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and watched Elizabeth Taylor on a veranda in a sexy white slip fanning herself with a handkerchief and sipping on a tall glass of ice cold sweet tea. She made summer in the south look steamy and sizzling, not droopy and devoid of life. Could heat be seductive? It seems like hope for my SAD is coming through a variety of channels. I was talking with another friend recently who lives in a great old Florida house built way before air conditioning and it still doesnt have AC. The house has great cross ventilation and an enormous old attic fan that I turn on at night. Its actually very comfortable and my electric bill is low. I looked at him wide-eyed, unbelieving. But, the more I thought about it, I wondered if accepting the heat could be freeing. The vivid beauty of the poinciana trees, humidity as a comforting cloak, warmth as romance, and thinking of the heat as freeing. Maybe its not about forcing myself to embrace summer in Southwest Florida to avoid SAD and instead, just letting summer be summer and enjoying its offerings, all the while turning SAD into Zen.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dont Let Health Care Costs Derail Your RetirementYou may be saving for retirement and assuming youll be fine, but theres a certain cost that many people underestimate or dont include in their retirement planning: health care.According to new data from the Nationwide Retirement Institute, health care costs are keeping roughly a quarter of current retirees from living the lives they expected. Furthermore, 80 percent said that health problems snuck up on them sooner than anticipated. Of course, theres no getting around the need to pay for health care in retirement, but you can do your part to ease the burden by knowing your costs in advance, buying the right insurance and saving for the bills that lie ahead.The amount you ultimately spend on medical care in retirement will depend on a number of factors primarily, your health. But according to HealthView Services, a medical cost-projection software provider, the average 65-year-old male today will spend $189,687 on health care in retirement, while the average 65-yearold woman will spend more (because women tend to live longer) $214,565. Worse, those averages dont even account for long-term care, which is something that 70 percent of seniors 65 and over are likely to need. According to Genworth Financials 2017 Cost of Care Survey, the average assisted living facility in the country costs $3,750 per month, or $45,000 on a yearly basis. The average nursing home, meanwhile, costs $235 per day, or $85,775 per year, and thats only for a semi-private room.What should you do, given all that? Well, aim to save aggressively for retirement, investing your money effectively. Consider taking advantage of taxadvantaged accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s, too. Learn more about Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans in order to see which will likely keep your health care spending as low as possible in retirement. Read up on ways to save money on health care in retirement, too, whether its getting ahead of medical issues before they escalate by eating well and exercising or by being savvy about prescriptions. An Unhealthy ScamMy dumbest investment was a company out of Bainbridge Island, Washington, many years ago. The marketing was brilliant, with a sign at Safeco Field, Shaquille ONeal wearing the company hat at an NBA championship celebration and more. It seemed to be a successful high-tech health business, aiming to combine fitness and health services under one roof. I toured the facilities, met staff and was impressed. I invested $10,000 in the company, but it turned out to be a scam. I cant recall managements names, but they should be getting out of prison soon. S.O., onlineThe Fool Responds: You werent alone that was cited as the largest stock fraud case in Washington state history. Its easy to get excited about fascinating and promising businesses you run across, but you should aim to dig into them deeply before investing even more so when theyre small and/or young.Hearing managements rosy outlook isnt enough, and touring the premises isnt necessary. Look into the history and track record of management. Look into their books to see whether theyre turning their great ideas into profits. Look into current and possible future competitors, and weigh all risks facing the company. Even if you do all that, a company could still surprise you by imploding. Thus, its smart to protect your money by spreading it across a bunch of companies (or a simple and low-fee index fund) and not just a few. Some Pep for Your Portfolio?If youre in the market for stable, established companies with track records of solid dividend growth, consider PepsiCo (Nasdaq: PEP).In addition to its namesake Pepsi line, the company boasts 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion apiece in annual revenue, including Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Tropicana, Quaker, Lays, Doritos and Cheetos. Currently, PepsiCo dishes out $0.805 per share quarterly, with its dividend recently yielding 3.25 percent. The company has increased its dividend annually for 45 consecutive years (through 2017), and further increases are likely.PepsiCos wide moat, featuring intangible assets, cost advantages and brand power, keeps competitors at bay. And it boasts strong relationships with distributors and retailers.One challenge facing PepsiCo is that consumer tastes in the U.S. are trending toward healthier products. In response, PepsiCo is adding healthier items to its lineup, such as Tropicana Essentials Probiotics, while promoting existing healthier options such as its juices and aiming to reduce the sodium content in its foods. Meanwhile, international demand for much of PepsiCos offerings is growing. PepsiCo is cutting costs by increasing automation, recently implementing robotic truck loaders at shipping centers and automating some packing processes. With a solid dividend and some underappreciated growth catalysts, PepsiCo is worth considering for your long-term portfolio. I trace my roots back 200 years, to the 1818 opening of my first haberdashery in New York City. My early tagline was Makers and Merchants in One. I introduced the innovation of ready-made suits in 1849, button-down polo shirts in 1896 and a pink shirt for women in 1949. I made a uniform for Teddy Roosevelt and a coat for Abraham Lincoln. Unlike many other companies, I extended credit to my customers during the Great Depression. My logo is the Golden Fleece. I boast more than 280 stores in the U.S. and more than 700 internationally. Who am I? (Answer: Brooks Brothers) Watch That Watch ListQHow should I go about creating and using a stock watch list? M.S., Warren, OhioAStart by jotting down the names of companies you read or hear about that seem like promising investments. You could do so on paper, but maintaining a list online is easier. You can set up an online watch list or portfolio full of stocks of interest at sites such as finance. yahoo.com, morningstar.com, marketwatch.com and others. You might pretend that you bought one or more shares of each at the stock price at which you first noticed the company. Meanwhile, research and follow the companies on your list and get to know them well. When youre ready to buy, youll be familiar with a bunch of companies and will have a sense of which are strongest, growing most briskly and priced attractively. Monitoring your list will also help you notice when a company of interest falls in price significantly, presenting a possibly great buying opportunity. When that happens, do further research to make sure any problems its facing seem temporary and not protracted. ***QWhats window dressing, financially speaking? T.D., Watertown, WisconsinAWindow dressing is a not-so-great practice employed by some mutual fund managers. Since fund managers have to report regularly on their funds holdings and they want to impress existing and potential shareholders, some will sell poor performers and replace them with popular stocks before the reporting period ends. That will make a good impression on someone reviewing their list of holdings as of the end of the quarter. You might avoid being taken in by window dressing by favoring funds with low turnover ratios, which reflect relatively infrequent trading activity. Want more information about stocks?

These habits, along with a strong work ethic, are your most valuable skill set and the real differentiators that fuel your career. Its also important to hit the ground running after graduation. Theres no better time to set a path toward financial success than right now, when youve got youth on your side. Mr. Krasnows habits are what helped him build a career from the ground up. Following early success in the clothing industry, he experienced a financially devastating bankruptcy that forced him to rebuild his life from scratch. He went on to join Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, where he has been a top producer for 40 years and won many Top Agent titles. In The Success Code, he lays out the no-fail formula that took him to the top of his industry. Keep reading to learn his best practices that will bring you unprecedented success for years to come. Fuel yourself with motivation Mr. Krasnow says one advantage of being young is that you have hunger and the spark. Hunger is the drive that pushes you to work hard; the spark is the excitement, energy and anticipation of fulfilling your dreams. Seize this motivation and let it fuel your ambitions, he urges new graduates. And speaking of ambitions: If you havent done so already, figure out exactly what you want to accomplish in your life and write up a description of the vision you would like to bring into fruition. Let this vision motivate you to strive for exactly what you want for your life, and accept nothing less. Solidify your work ethic now Today more than ever, you must have an iron-clad work ethic to succeed in your career. This means being punctual, professional, responsible, self-disciplined and productive. Be honest with yourself about which of these qualities you already possess and which you need to work on developing. Dont feel discouraged if you fall short in some areas they can take time to master. Instead, commit to sharpening each of these qualities to the best of your ability. People will start taking notice. Fine tune your focus Todays employees have greater responsibility and less time to complete their work. This forces them to multi-task something most people are terrible at doing. Plus, they are constantly interrupted by email, text messages and social media. Mr. Krasnow says success often comes down to your ability to tune out all of this noise and get focused. Get rid of distractions and temptations until your work is finished, he advises. Turn off media, remove clutter from your desk and limit office chitchat anytime you have a task to complete. This creates an environment that best allows you to serve your clients and get your work done. Engage with your clients Building and nurturing solid client relationships is the cornerstone of any successful business. Mr. Krasnow says fostering engagement requires your commitment to a personal code of integrity to ensure clients that you will work hard for them and that they are in good hands. Strive to be honest and authentic with your clients and your associates, he says. People will always be able to tell if youre being friendly just to make a sale or establish a connection Get to know your clients and show genuine interest in their lives, and check in even when you have nothing to sell them. Get some grit From time to time, you will inevitably fail, lose or experience some kind of a professional or personal setback. When this happens, deal with the loss and move on. Theres no benefit in wallowing or succumbing to fear or anger. You have to believe that you can overcome anything, and then put that belief into practice, Mr. Krasnow says. Take a short amount of time to mourn your losses and process your emotions just dont dwell on them. Next, take responsibility for where you are today and resolve to address any behaviors that need to be changed. Finally, get back to your normal routine with resolve to do it better than ever. Work smarter, not harder Learn to prioritize your daily goals. Create a to-do list and divide your tasks into three categories: critical, high-priority, and lowpriority. Tackle each task in order of priority. Another good rule of thumb is to stop reinventing the wheel, Mr. Krasnow adds. Make a habit of reusing and modifying resources already at your disposal. Never stop competing ... with yourself Mr. Krasnow recommends using a practice he calls the push-up principle to achieve personal goals by starting at your current skill and ability level and consistently moving up from there. This process naturally leads to selfimprovement through small, manageable steps. If you can do only five push-ups today, try doing six push-ups tomorrow, he says. The principle is incredibly simple, but it can create a long legacy of achievement. Set some reasonable goals and immediately start working to achieve them. Once youve proven to yourself how simple it is to execute your goals, your confidence level will begin to rise, and you can continually build on this momentum. Hone an ideal image Your appearance should reflect the quality of your services, says Mr. Krasnow. Therefore, it pays to think of your health and wellness as an investment in your success. Without a strong, fit body, its difficult to have the stamina to do your best at work. Be sure you are getting enough sleep, eating healthy, exercising regularly. Give up smoking or excessive drinking. Once youve got your health under control, he says, build a wardrobe that communicates the exact message you want to send to clients and associates. You dont have to spend a fortune, he stresses. But your clothing should fit well, and your eyewear, briefcase, purse, phone and other accessories should be stylish and contemporary. Remember, everything matters. Become a whole person Mr. Krasnow believes your success and ultimately, your happiness lies in your ability to become a whole person. This means having a balanced and rich life in all areas of your existence. No matter how much fulfillment you get from your career, you still need to expand your life and enjoy all it has to offer. When you are happy in life, it shows in your confidence and in your work performance, he says. Make time to be present with those around you. Develop a few hobbies outside of work and find some ways to enjoy the fruits of your labor. If you want to give something back, do some volunteer work. Whatever you do, he cautions, Dont make the mistake of just getting a job. The people who did that without considering the consequences of their decisions early on are now entering their second careers. Instead, develop the habits that lead to success and use them to build a career. When you realize your potential now and not years down the road you can put it to work starting today.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 BUSINESS A33 MONEY & INVESTINGThings to review before you purchase an Exchange Traded FundIf you have been reading this column over the past few years you know that I am a big fan of Exchange Traded Funds. These are investments that trade like stocks but enable an investor to gain exposure to an entire sector of the market. Typically, these funds track and mimic the performance of a certain index like the Dow Jones or NASDAQ technology. But today there are over 5,000 ETFs traded on major exchanges across the world so how do you pick the right one to invest in? Clearly the most important criteria to use when selecting an ETF is the index or sector that the fund tracks. There are ETFs that focus on bonds, stocks, international securities, commodities and currencies. These funds can be as broad as tracking the entire Russell 1000 stock index to as narrow as focusing on small capitalization biotech stocks. And some ETFs use options and other more complex securities to magnify or invert the performance of a sector. For example, you can buy an ETF that returns double the movement of the technology sector or another that goes up when gold prices go down. You need to know exactly how the fund you are selecting will perform given a certain movement in the market. Second, I like to look at an ETFs expense ratio. This is the amount of fees that the ETF will charge you to pay for the administrative costs of the fund expressed at an annual percentage of your investment. So, if the expense ratio is .15 percent, that means that if the index that the ETF tracks goes up by 1 percent in a year you will only get a .85 percent return. Expense ratios vary wildly, from just .03 percent for the SPDR Large Cap Stock ETF to 3.5 percent for Breakwave Dry Bulk Shipping ETF. Generally speaking, the more vanilla the index, the less the expense ratio will be. But even ETFs that track the same index can have dramatically different expense ratios, so I like to buy funds that have the lowest expenses. A .1 percent subtraction from your return every year can make a big difference if you are a long-term holder of the security. The third aspect of an ETF I look at before buying is the top holdings of the ETF. Recently, I wanted to purchase an ETF that focused on high dividend U.S. stocks, so I selected two or three of the most popular. To my surprise, each had different stocks that made up its portfolio and even commonly held stocks did not make up a similar percentage of their respective overall funds. I would stay away from funds where just a few stocks make up a very large percentage of the overall ETF unless that is what you are looking for. I would also look at the top 20 securities and see if you feel comfortable owning them. Finally, before I purchase an ETF, I see if there are any red flags that would make me cautious in purchasing it. For example, I see how large the fund is. If it is very small, this may give me pause because it may have low illiquidity or may not perform well with significant market movements. Also, I look to see how long the manager of the fund has been the manager. With index funds this is not an issue but if the fund manager is being called on to make investment decision, a change in management may be a warning sign. And lastly, I look at the historical performance versus the benchmark index that the ETF is tracking. If the fund underperforms the index over long periods of time, I would be hesitant to buy that fund unless there was a reason for that underperformance.

B20 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAu revoir Naples, au revoir Mediterra, au revoir my dear new friendsI love the French expression au revoir. It means until I see you again. And now its time to say au revoir to Naples, to Mediterra, and to all the dear new friends Ive made thanks to my Mediterra Sales Executive, Lisa, and all the professionals at the Club at Mediterra. Im heading north for the summer. This has been the most fulfilling Winter Season Ive ever spent in Naples. As I did my new home search, I discovered Mediterra. Ive absolutely fallen in love with the place, so much so that Ive purchased a home site in the communitys Caminetto neighborhood and will be building a home with London Bay Homes Carmela floor plan. London Bay has been an award-winning homebuilder and developer in the Southwest Florida luxury home market for more than 25 years and manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra. There are so many things I want to do before leaving. I want to get my new girlfriends together for a round of golf and some lunch. Ive sworn to myself that I will become a good golfer! Mediterras the perfect place to finally do that. Tom Fazio designed two courses that are as beautiful as they are playable. They weave their way through lakes, wetlands, and preserves and present challenges for golfers of every skill level. Ive been taking lessons at the Clubs Golf Learning Center that has the latest swing analysis technology and offers personalized instruction. The best part is that because Im purchasing a home by London Bay, Ive been able to get a full golf membership immediately instead of being put on the membership waiting list as a Limited Golf Member. Lots of choices for lunch. We could lunch on the verandah at Mediterras 25,000 square-foot clubhouse. Informal attire, including jeans, is always welcomed. The verandah and the open-air terrace and Tavern outdoor lounge overlook the 18th holes of the two golf courses. The Club will be starting a 24,000 square-foot expansion of the covered outdoor terrace and outdoor lounge areas this year. Seven thousand square feet of existing clubhouse space will also be enhanced. Its all being done without a member assessment. The Clubs dining options include a doctors orders menu with a selection of healthy items. We could also have lunch at Mediterras Beach Club thats just a few minutes away on Little Hickory Island. I havent found another community in Southwest Florida that can match the Mediterra beach experience. It conveys the magic of the beach with sand and water colors and has an elegantly casually South Beach vibe. The bar area has a sporty feeling with large screen televisions and theres a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. In addition to casual indoor and al fresco dining, theres an elevated swimming pool with a big sundeck and cabana service for beach chairs and umbrellas. The entire setting is stunning, and its become one of my favorite places. I want to take another walk on the communitys trails that offer glimpses of the lakes and fairways on the two golf courses. Along the way, Ill stop for a moment or two of quiet time at one of the parks located throughout the community. Ill miss my me time at the parks this summer. I love tennis. Its a way to exercise and socialize. Maybe after my walk, Ill play a match with my new neighbors. Mediterra has an awesome tennis program acknowledged as one of the top programs in the country. Theres a dedicated tennis pro shop and eight Har-Tru tennis courts, including a spectator court. Have you heard of Pickleball? In a lot of ways, its a lower impact form of tennis that has become incredibly popular. Three new pickleball courts with a forgiving, Laykold masters gel surface that reduces the force of impact by 17% opened this season and have perimeter areas that allow each court to stand alone without interfering with adjacent courts. Ill confess that I need to stop by the fitness center at Mediterras Sports Club. The fitness center is huge. Its outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and offers fitness classes, wellness programs, and personal trainers everything Ill need to stay healthy and in shape. The Sports Club also features aesthetic services, three spa rooms for a post workout massage, and a swimming pool with a sunning deck. I definitely want a great workout or two and an awesome massage before I leave. In the early evening, Ill venture over to the bocce ball courts and join the fun. The bocce courts are the place to be. More than 600 residents are members of bocce ball teams that compete on a regular basis. Its so popular theres even a dedicated bocce bar. Its been a great way to socialize and get to know people. Ill be ending my last couple of days on the terrace at the Clubhouse. A glass of wine, a bite to eat, conversations and laughs with my new friends around the fire pit, what could be better? A perfect end to a perfect day. Thanks so much for letting me share my amazing experiences at Mediterra with you. Have an awesome summer. Ill be back with you in September. Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Road two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Call (239) 298-7600.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 REAL ESTATE B21 Second tower under construction at Kalea BayCommunitys Club Amenity Center popular with residents Just months after the successful sell out and move-ins of all developer units in Kalea Bays first tower, construction on the second tower in the gated, luxury highrise community located in North Naples is well underway. Weve had record-breaking sales in Tower 200 during the first quarter of 2018, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. To be more specific, from January to May we sold 24 residences in Tower 200 totaling more than $52 million. However, since launching sales in July 2017, we have sold more than 50 percent of all residences in the tower for a total of $120 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories with 120 residences. Specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge. Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million. The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys Club amenity center. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot club amenity center is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. She added, Purchasers in Tower 200 can start using the club and its amenities the day they sign their contracts, affording them an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this amazing $25 million world-class amenity center. The clubhouse itself features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, bistro, a fitness center, and lakeside fire pit. 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 and lounge chairs 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 can be reserved by members to accommodate overnight guests and are located on property. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse, and takes them to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile north of Wiggins Pass Road. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEnhanced amenities heighten Talis Parks new-fashioned appealSince purchasing Talis Park in 2011, Kitson & Partners mission to redefine the traditional country club experience continues to enhance life at Talis Park. Anchored by its award-winning Vyne House clubhouse, long lakes, and the fairways of one of only two Greg NormanPete Dye designed golf courses worldwide, Talis Park offers a more meaningful way of life which emphasizes the things that matter most: family and home. Talis Park is more about a whole lifestyle than just a place to live, explains resident Laurie McArdle. Theres always something to do. People are friendly, and the surroundings are beautiful. Whats not to like? Talis Parks newest amenity is The Beach Runner, its exclusive beach shuttle. Each day, the Beach Runner whisks members away to the pristine Vanderbilt Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Naples is well-known for its gorgeous beaches and legendary sunsets, said Milt Flinn, Chief Operating Officer of Talis Park, and our Beach Runner makes it easy and convenient for members to enjoy them both. The Beach Runner is stationed at Talis Parks Vyne House clubhouse, adjacent to the Great Lawn at Talis Parks Grand Piazza. Vyne House is the center of life in Talis Park, with its various dining options, comfortable outdoor spaces, lushly-landscaped walkways, and courtyards.

An enchanting green space provides a social gathering area reminiscent of the Great Lawn. Tree-lined streetscapes offer an ideal setting for walking, jogging, and biking while nature trails provide an opportunity to experience nature on a more intimate level. Talis Parks golf experience is second to none. The Norman/Dye-designed course includes 133 acres of carefully manicured Sea Dwarf Paspalum turf. The tees, fairways, roughs and greens, are 100 percent Paspalum at varying heights. The course measures 7,025 yards from the championship tees. A picturesque landscape allows for uphill and downhill holes while providing a setting similar to the valleys of Tuscany, Italy. The golf course provides a backdrop for Talis Parks neighborhoods which include showcase estates, single-family residences, resort-style coach homes, penthouse-style condominiums, and terrace homes from the high-$600s into the millions. Furnished models are available for viewing seven days a week. Prospective homebuyers may experience Talis Park by participating in the communitys Gold Pass program.

FLORIDA WRITERSAlmost down for the count, Kirk McGarvey rebounds to outdo the bad guys Flash Points by David Hagberg. Forge, 320 pages. Hardcover, $25.99.This electrifying thriller continues the battle between David Hagbergs continuing hero, Kirk McGarvey, and the shrewd, highly skilled freelance assassin introduced in Tower Down (reviewed in these pages). Lets call that man, who has several identities, Kamal. He has roots in Saudi Arabia, but easily blends into Western environments. For sale to the highest bidder, he has his own agenda. At the top of Kamals list is the murder of Mac, his nemesis. Not only must he cleanse the world of this CIA operative and former director, Kamal needs to see Mac suffer, and maybe Macs girlfriend as well. Mac had foiled Kamals plan to bring down a second Manhattan skyscraper in Tower Down. However, whats making Kamal a very wealthy man is his agreement to put Mac out of the way for other reasons. Groups with opposing attitudes toward the new U.S. president want Mac out of the way because he is the person most likely to detect and foil their plans. The group wishing to discredit the commander in chief is bankrolling a series of terrorist catastrophes meant to undermine the stature of the inexperienced, ill-equipped president. He will, so goes the scheme, inevitably blunder in ways that will make his replacement inevitable. This groups leaders have put Kamal on their payroll. The cadre that supports the president wishes to use similar schemes to opposite ends. They will be manipulating events to make him look good; not only will the outcome assure solidifying his base, but also expanding it. Flash Points opens with an explosion meant to destroy Macs car and him with it. Although it was planned by Kamal, a hirelings misplacement of the explosive material lessens the impact. Nonetheless, Mac loses a leg. The CIA leadership thinks it best for him to recuperate in secret and for the word to get out that he has been killed. While Mac gets used to his peg leg and recovers from other wounds, he participates in the planning that will draw out the crafty Kamal.The author alternates the center of consciousness so that readers switch back and forth between following Kamals thoughts, emotions and actions and following Macs. The tradecraft and courage of each is well displayed, as is their sharp contrast in values. Suspense builds higher and higher as the inevitable confrontation draws closer and closer.One major difference between these sections is that, since Kamal is a lone wolf with no meaningful attachments, his character is isolated from normal human relationships. The sections that follow Mac are alive with his memories of his late wife and daughter, his love for girlfriend and co-worker, Pete, and his care for and camaraderie with several friends who are, in most cases, partners in the business of defending their nation. Many of his fans have noted that Mr. Hagbergs novels are fresher than yesterdays news. He seems to anticipate near-future events and build premises on suppositions that come true before his books hit the marketplace. Of course, the president characterized in Flash Points is a stand-in for our current president and hes a fine imitation. Mr. Hagbergs descriptions of how the CIA works, how missions are designed and carried out, and the physical dimensions of his vivid characterizations contribute greatly to reader appeal. While it might seem superfluous for the author to inventory Kamals wardrobe so many times, it becomes clear that this vain killers concern for his appearance is connected to his disguise of normality, his need to fit in. He is always playing a part. Choosing the outfit is part of the tradecraft; but beyond this, Kamal enjoys looking good and spending his money with taste. To put it more plainly: David Hagberg is a man of many words, but he does not waste them. This is another fine political thriller from an acknowledged master. About the authorDavid Hagberg is a former U.S. Air Force cryptographer who has traveled extensively in Europe, the Artic and the Caribbean. He speaks frequently at CIA functions. Mr. Hagberg has published more than 70 novels of suspense, many of them bestsellers. These include Allahs Scorpion, Dance with the Dragon and The Expediter. He makes his home in Sarasota and, with his wife, enjoys sailing the west coast of the state and the Florida Keys. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com HAGBERG

Her lectures are so popular, she has to give each one twice: once in the Daniels Pavilion on a Thursday morning, and then again in the larger Hayes Hall two days later. This past season, she sold out the 1,477-seat Hayes Hall when she lectured on Amor Towless bestseller A Gentleman in Moscow, about a man whos confined to a luxury hotel for the rest of his life. The lecture included an interview with the author. Tickets were at such a premium that Ms. Newton was receiving three or four requests daily for them after theyd sold out. Ms. Newton knows her stuff. She is a professor emeritus of humanities at York University in Toronto, Ontario, and was book critic for the Toronto Globe and Mail for more than 10 years. You think youve read a book carefully and thoughtfully, yet when Ms. Newton lectures, you see threads and facets you hadnt even considered before. With wit and insight, she unwraps the book for you: characters, scenes, themes, sentences. She deconstructs novels skillfully and then, with a magicians skill, weaves it all back together for you at the end. Her Summer Reading List is so popular that people bring it on vacation with them, share it with friends and even post it on Facebook. Some try to guess which six shell pick to lecture about. Often, the books she picks go on to win prestigious awards. Here is this years list, in alphabetical order by author: The Only Story by Julian Barnes The Immortalists by Chloe Benja min Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan Every Note Played by Lisa Genova The Few by Hakan Gunday Promise by Minrose Gwin The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah Munich by Robert Harris Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday Paris in the Present Tense by Mark Helprin The Sparsholt Affair by Alan Hollinghurst Eternal Life by Dara Horn The Last Equation of Isaac Severy by Nova Jacobs An American Marriage by Tayari Jones The Leavers by Lisa Ko I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai (available June 19) Straying by Molly McClokey A State of Freedom by Neel Mukherjee Little Fires Everywhere by Celest Ng The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen Warlight by Michael Ondaatje The Overstory by Richard Powers Alternate Side by Anna Quindlen The Italian Teacher by Tom Rachman Home Fires by Kamila Shamsie Clock Dance by Anne Tyler (available July 10) The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea The Neighborhood by Mario Vargas Llosa Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward The Force by Don Winslow The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer READFrom page 1IM JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER BOOK LOVER; I cant wait for Elaine Newtons Summer Reading List. I peruse it to see what books she names that Ive already read, what ones Ive read about but havent consumed, and what ones Ive never heard of that I can experience the joy of discovering. Part of the fun is trying to guess what six books Ms. Newton will pick to lecture on next season for her Critics Choice series at ArtisNaples. Theres really no way of telling, but its fun to speculate. This year, Ive already read five of the titles listed and am in the middle of a sixth The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer. (Ms. Wolitzer was a Critics Choice special guest a couple seasons ago, interviewed by Ms. Newton about her novel The Interestings. So far, The Female Persuasion seems to be about a Gloria Steinem-like figure and her protg, a young writer fresh out of college. Ms. Wolitzer, who writes the most delicious similes, also has a killer sense of humor.) Another handful of books on this years list are sitting by my bed, waiting to be devoured Munich by Robert Harris, An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, The Leavers by Lisa Ko and The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea. In looking over the list, I learned theres a new Ann Tyler coming out (Clock Dance on July 10), and that Michael Ondaatje has another novel out (Warlight). Mr. Ondaatje, a Sri-Lankan born Canadian, has appeared on Ms. Newtons lists before (most recently, The Cats Table), so its possible she might chose that as one of the six books for next seasons lectures. And Julian Barnes, who starts the summer list, has been on it multiple times, most recently with The Sense of an Ending and The Noise of Time. The latter book, about the Russian composer Shostakovich, was a lecture choice in 2017. Of the five books Ive already read, three worked for me, while two didnt. The Immortalists, about four siblings who are each given the date of their death by a woman who can see the future, was entertaining in its early chapters, but about halfway through it took a turn and became disappointing. And Jennifer Egans Manhattan Beach, about a young woman who gets a job as a professional diver at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during WW II and becomes involved with a gangster, didnt thrill either, though it received rave reviews. Lisa Hallidays Asymmetry was an odd little book that just stayed with me long after, haunting me. It consists of two seemingly unconnected novellas and a coda. The first novella is about a young woman who has an affair with a famous, older novelist who sounds very much like Philip Roth. (The author herself had an affair with the famous author when she was even younger. This would typically make me run from a book, but her sentences are so wonderful, so well crafted.) The second novella is about an Iraqi American detained at the London airport. Asymmetry is a captivating book about power and perception, about the various imbalances in life. The Force, by Don Winslow, was an entertaining read. Set in New York City, it tells the story of Dennis Malone, a corrupt New York City police detective on the citys most elite unit, the Manhattan North Special Task Force. Denny is not above taking the law into his own hands, deciding who should live and who should die. Think of it as a gritty, modern-day Greek tragedy, set in the City That Never Sleeps. This fast-moving novel was sold to Hollywood, as was Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Like Mr. Winslows novel, it starts with a climatic ending (in this case, a house fire) and then brings us back to the events leading up to it. In Ms. Ngs novel, an artist mother and her daughter move into an apartment next to the ideal family living in the prosperous Shaker Heights, Ohio. The two families couldnt be more unalike. Things come to a head when an abandoned Chinese baby is adopted by a white couple. Ms. Ng deftly deals with the themes of race, class, motherhood, privilege and following the rules vs. artistic freedom. The novel will be adapted for an eightepisode TV miniseries starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, who are also executive producers. But read the books first. The books are always better.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Exceptional quality for less than you might think Come see for yourself. ON THE WATERYacht crew sailing local waters in 1884 found lonely coast BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe crew of a yacht named the Wallowy experienced Southwest Florida in a way nobody alive today can. It sailed our waters in 1884, from Charlotte Harbor south to Cape Sable. The crews experiences were recounted in Harpers New Monthly Magazine in an unsigned travel piece in its January 1885 issue. Florida was thinly populated in 1884, the year before Thomas Edison first visited Fort Myers. Lee, Collier and Hendry counties did not exist. All that land was then part of Monroe County. Floridas population was 269,493 in 1880. Thats less than half of Lee Countys current population. The articles author estimated no more than 300 people resided between Punta Rassa and Cape Sable. Southwest Florida was then a remote outpost, not yet reached by rail service. As the writer noted, It is a lonely coast, and unfrequented sea. Although he was not given a byline in 1885, a check of Harpers website reveals that his name was Barnet Phillips. Mr. Phillips started his piece detailing a quest that countless millions have followed in the 134 years since his adventure. In January and February last year the mercury in New York thermometers forsook the stems and shrank into the bulb of those instruments, Mr. Phillips wrote. He and two friends left behind what he called New York Spitzbergen. Their Gulf Coast adventure began well north of Southwest Florida in what the writer called Cedar Keys. Thats where, Mr. Phillips noted, We were there to victual the ship. He described the Wallowy as a little schooner of 17 tons. She was not a very neat or jaunty craft, Mr. Phillips wrote. Her white paint was dingy; still she seemed stanch and serviceable. The Wallowy was chartered for three weeks. Maps of Florida were, he noted, nailed on the sides of the cabin. This adventure came before GPS, radio and Coast Guard helicopters. They had to navigate on their own and had no way to communicate from the schooner. If the Wallowy wallowed there werent helicopters available to rescue Mr. Phillips. Modern anglers have likely never seen what Mr. Phillips witnessed. In no waters are fish so abundant, even beyond the wildest dreams of the most advanced of the ichthyophagous. Ichtyophagous? One definition of that $10 word is fish eating. Mr. Phillips went on to write about the fish. Sharks splash around you, he wrote. There is the gigantic devil-fish, that looks as if it covered a half-acre, with porpoises swimming in every lagoon. Far south of Cedar Key the Wallowy reached the Ten Thousand Islands. There are not 10,000 islands, there must be a million of them, and more to spare, almost all of them covered in mangroves, Mr. Phillips wrote. To describe them was a difficult task. Island after island appears emerging out of these blue bays. It is an endless archipelago, all green and smiling. The Wallowy stopped at Pine Island. In 1884, its Indian mounds were likely largely untouched. Here on Pine Island was an Indian mound, and the party, with strong archeological tendencies, scrambled through thickets, and found an ancient tumulus, Mr. Phillips wrote. Tumulus? Its an ancient burial mound. Archeologists in the 21st century likely fantasize about visiting Pine Island in 1884, before it was developed. It was hard digging in a blazing sun with inefficient tools, Mr. Phillips wrote. Machetes were plied, and a grubbing hoe was used. We soon struck potsherd, then found a bone or so, and presently a good skull was discovered. We took three fine skulls after an hours work and carried them off. Mr. Phillips apparently sensed what would happen in the next century when more people discovered Southwest Florida. Punta Rassa or Sanybel Island would make the most delightful of winter resorts, he wrote of the place we now know as Sanibel. Although the fish were abundant and formed part of the crews diet they supplemented that with game. On the Caloosahatchee we killed a fine buck, Mr. Phillips said. It was good while it lasted, but in this warm climate, where meat spoils rapidly, a fair supply of canned meat is a necessity. What Mr. Phillips and others on the Wallowy experienced on their cruise may sound familiar 134 years later. We all came home bronzed with the sun, Mr. Phillips wrote in the articles conclusion, hands punctured with mosquito bites, but with our memories filled with the many enchanting hours spent on this delicious coast.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY AM PM AM PM ARTS COMMENTARYThe magical lure of Ragtime at the Asolo Repertory TheatreBefore Ragtime: The Musical opens each night at the Asolo Repertory Theatre, were presented with a striking, singular image: a simple, wooden grand piano and stool sitting in the spotlight on a bare stage. It symbolizes so many things: the jaunty, syncopated music of ragtime that weaves its way throughout the show (music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens), the hopes and dreams of a Harlem musician and the possibilities presented by a new, 20th century. It also represents the show itself: a sparse, minimalist presentation. However, this doesnt mean the Asolo Rep has stinted on the talent or cut corners. Far from it. This Ragtime is spectacular, superb. It is theater at its finest. Director Peter Rothstein originally conceived this production for Theater Latte Da in Minneapolis, which he describes in the theater program as a venue that has reimagined large scale musicals in intimate spaces. And thats exactly what hes done here. When this Tony Award-winning musical first hit Broadway in 1998, it had an $11 million budget. Ragtime could be challenging for any theater to produce, with a large cast and action that takes place in a variety of locales, including ships, Atlantic City, Harlem, a garden, a workers hall, a baseball field, a political rally and Henry Fords automotive plant. But this production is magical. The grand piano does triple duty, as not only a musical instrument, but as a model T and a coffin. A garden in New Rochelle, N.Y., is suggested by a giant, overarching branch. Much is done with just a suggestion, thanks to Michael Hoovers scenic design and the magic of Duane Schulers lighting design and Justin Shaws complementary sound design. The musicals book by Terrence McNally (based on E.L. Doctorows best-selling 1975 novel), tells the story of three groups: immigrants from Eastern Europe, AfricanAmericans, and a well-off white family living in New Rochelle. Celebrities make appearances too, including JP Morgan (Bret Shuford), Henry Ford (Hugh Hastings), Booker T. Washington (Rod Singleton), Emma Goldman (a feisty Leslie Becker) and Harry Houdini (Benjamin Dutcher), who loosed the chains of being an immigrant before he learned to escape from physical ones. Theres even a celebrity whose fame comes from being a famous mans mistress (Billie Wildrick as the chipper and wry Evelyn Nesbit, known as The Girl on the Velvet Swing. She shot to fame when her abusive husband killer her lover, the architect Stanford White.) Characters from these three groups (four, if you want to count the celebrities) cross paths and intertwine. At times, they narrate the story while also acting it out. With such a large cast (and three actors playing double roles), its impossible to single out everyone in this superlative production. They are all excellent actors and singers. Jared Joseph is strong in his role of Colehouse Walker Jr., a proud black man who plays ragtime in Harlem and tries to woo back his woman, Sarah (Danyel Fulton). Mr. Joseph brings down the house with Make Them Hear You, and the two share a nice duet of future possibilities in Wheels of a Dream. Ms. Fulton is every bit his equal, vocally. Sasha Andreev shows great vulnerability and charm as Tateh, a new immigrant to America. And it is impossible to take your eyes of off Britta Ollmann as Mother, the wealthy white woman who continually surprises, taking in an abandoned black baby and showing kindness to a new immigrant. Shes the embodiment of our better natures but is never saccharine. The musical score provides plenty of ragtime, including the rollicking Gettin Ready Rag, an explosion of song and dance. There are also vaudeville-sounding tunes and gospel-flavored songs plus a humorous number set at a baseball game that demonstrates just how uncivilized this gentlemanly pastime can be. One song talks of ragtime as new music breaking my heart/opning a door,/Changing the world. And this is what Ragtime: The Musical offers us: an American filled with beauty and ugliness, endless opportunity and unspeakable oppression, lurid sensationalism and small, life-changing acts of kindness. It is a sad commentary that some of these things discrimination against immigrants, violence against AfricanAmerican men without justice, company owners making millions while their workers struggle are still relevant. Though set over 100 years in the past, it is shockingly timely. The staging is creative, and, at times, unexpected, each scene a delight to be carefully unwrapped and savored. For example, Tateh, the newly arrived immigrant, tries to make a living by selling silhouettes on the street. And the musical itself offers us the entire cast, in silhouette, across the rear of the stage. This production delights our senses, challenges our pre-suppositions and moves our souls. It is epic in scope, yet personal and intimate. It may be the very end of the season, but the Asolo Rep has obviously saved the best for last. (Its so popular, in fact, theyve added an extra show on May 27.) If you havent seen Ragtime, you should. This production is simply too good to miss.

I was chatting with a friend, antiques dealer Jeffrey Burgess, of James & Jeffrey Antiques in West Palm Beach and commenting on the range of furniture styles he had for sale during a warehouse sale. For whatever reason, an Eames chair never looks out of place in a Victorian house, while many pieces of Victorian furniture never really look good, even in their own elements. Its funny how that works. And thats why I placed a 1940s Heywood Wakefield rattan chair next to an ordinary Victorian chest that my grandmother Dorothy painted an aqua color in the 1940s or s. She always told me I should strip the piece and return it to its original state, but her 60or 70-year-old paint has made the ordinary interesting, especially as the paint has mellowed, crackled and acquired a patina. Those pieces in turn sit across from a set of 1820s English Regency-style chairs that are refined and elegant, with curving backs and legs that evoke Greek klismos chairs of a few millennia before. Isnt funny how good design keeps repeating itself? And that was what I was faced with as a stared at a Biedermeier chair. Jeffrey told me I should buy it to use with a black lacquer midcentury desk inspired by the great Paul McCobb. I think they will work well together in the new home office I am creating. After all, McCobbs midcentury modern desk is all about clean lines, as is that Biedermeier chair. And the black lacquer matches. The Biedermeier design movement, which lasted roughly from 1815 to 1848 in Central Europe, drew inspiration from the French Empire designs of Napoleon, which in turn had drawn inspiration from motifs in ancient Rome. It also drew on the neoclassical lines of English Georgian furniture of the 18th century. But Biedermeier was different from French Empire and English styles in one key way its clean, sensuous lines were crafted in locally sourced woods cherry, oak and ash and without a lot of ornamentation. It enjoyed a resurgence at the turn of the last century and inspired a new round of creation. That reminds me that the Bought: Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store, 1635 Old Dixie Highway, Jupiter; 561-253-2290 or www. palmbeach.habitat restores.org. Paid: $30 The Skinny: I was tempted to buy this chair on a Thursday afternoon, then left it because it was pouring and I figured Id never get it into the car in the rain. I had second thoughts on Saturday and drove the 20 miles to Jupiter to buy it. Once again, it was pouring, and the staff generously wrapped it in plastic for me. The chair is an honest-togoodness 19th-century piece, according to antiques dealer Jeffrey Burgess, who has a pair that matches. It has a black lacquer top rail and a fruitwood frame. It has had a repair to the curving back, just about the seat on one side. Thats common for these chairs and it seems sturdy enough to use. THE FIND:A Biedermeier chairSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Biedermeier-style chair dates from the early to mid-19th century. It was made in Europe probably in what is now Germany or Austria. It would have been part of a larger set.Making a case for mixing stylesaxiom of what goes around comes around still rings true for antiques and collectibles. And at my desk.

What happened at the two tables might seem incredible, but the plain, unvarnished truth is that everything took place precisely as described below.At the first table, with Italy NorthSouth, the bidding went as shown, and the U.S. West led the king of clubs. East overtook with the ace and returned his singleton heart.The Italian declarer won with the ace and led a trump to the ace, on which West unexpectedly showed out. This development apparently caused something to go wrong with declarers think tank, since his next play was a low diamond to the king.At this point, the hand collapsed. West took his ace and led the queen of hearts. East ruffed dummys king, returned a low club to his partner, and West administered the final blow by cashing the jack of hearts to put the contract down two. At the second table, with a U.S. pair now North-South, the Italian West likewise led the club king against four spades. Here also, East overtook with the ace and shifted to a heart. The U.S. declarers play now varied slightly when he played the heart ten at trick two, covered by the jack and king. When South then cashed the ace of trumps and West discarded a heart, he suddenly found the contract could no longer be made regardless of what he did next. Eventually, he lost two clubs, a diamond and a heart for down one. Considering that four spades was icecold from the word go, the outcome at the two tables was astonishing. All declarer had to do to guarantee 10 tricks was to take his ace of hearts at trick two, draw trumps and lead the king of diamonds. Thats all there was to it. Even more astounding is the fact that both Souths would be voted among the 10 best players in the world. Each apparently suffered a mental block of some sort, proving that in bridge, as in life, its very human to err.

Brash and meta wit are on satisfyingly full display amidst all the action, but an underdeveloped villain makes it a weaker film than the 2016 original. Rated R.Life of the Party (Melissa McCarthy, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon) After her husband (Walsh) leaves her, Deanna (McCarthy) returns to college where her daughter Maddie (Gordon) is a senior to get her degree. Youll think its going in predictable directions, but it is delightfully surprising and funny. Rated PG-13.RBG (Ruth Bader Ginbsurg, Gloria Steinem, Bill Clinton) The life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes center stage in this revealing tell-all documentary. We learn about RBG both personally and professionally, and by the end its hard to not have immense respect for her accomplishments. Rated PG. Avengers: Infinity War (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe unite when villainous Thanos (Brolin) tries to take over the galaxy. Be prepared for anything, MCU fans and rest assured the action, effects and humor are all top notch. Rated PG-13.Godard, Mon Amour (Louis Garrel, Stacy Martin, Berenice Bejo) The late s personal life of famed French director Jean-Luc Godard (Garrel), including his marriage to a young actress (Martin) and social activism, is chronicled in this nudity-filled drama. Director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) has crafted the most unflattering homage to a great director that one could imagine, to the point that Godard is easily the least likeable character in the film. As a result, theres not much to enjoy. Rated R.I Feel Pretty (Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Tom Hopper) A woman with low selfesteem (Schumer) bangs her head and now views herself as beautiful even though she looks the same to the rest of the world. Its got a great message and will be perfect for a group of girl friends to enjoy together, but its not consistently funny for the rest of us. Rated PG-13.Truth or Dare (Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Sophia Ali) College seniors enjoy spring break in Mexico, but return to school cursed to play Truth or Dare; if they dont play, they die. Its a fun idea to put real lifeor-death stakes on a game so many of us have played, but the filmmakers dont do quite enough with it to keep us entertained throughout. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSSolo: A Star Wars Story Is it worth $10? NoYou know Solo: A Star Wars Story is off to a bad start when you have to read an essay before it begins. Not in the form of scrolling text, as is normal for an Episode film in the Star Wars franchise, but in staid blue text, appearing after were reminded the story takes place A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Its a set up for whats to come, but none of it is relevant: Names of places, objects being smuggled, etc., are MacGuffins, and easily discerned from the opening moments without the aid of the literary information preceding it. Spoon-feeding the audience isnt necessary, but this is what the Star Wars movies have come to: catering to everyone and taking few artistic risks along the way. This movie is enormous, ugly and dull, an all-out disappointment that no one asked for in the first place. Its also too long at 135 minutes, but straightforward: On his crime-ridden home planet, young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) does whats necessary to survive. Hes in love with Qira (Emilia Clarke) but has to leave, vowing to return to rescue her. He joins up with smugglers Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and Val (Thandie Newton), believing a big score will let him return home. Along the way he meets Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), among others and yes, one of the few pleasures of Solo is seeing these relationships take shape. If only it had more pleasures. Director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) took over, and presumably brought on a more serious approach, after comedy directing tandem Christopher Miller and Phil Lord ( Jump Street) were fired while the film was in production a year ago. Theres no denying Howards ability or accomplishments, but the tone is notably dark here, with a color palette of muted browns that does little to liven things up. Add this to a script by father-son writing team Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan that lacks any sense of fun and wonder, and the whole thing equals a laborious drag. Whats more, Ehrenreich doesnt have the boyish charm of the original Solo, Harrison Ford, meaning his casting in the title role feels misplaced. Although he has adequate screen presence, Ehrenreich reminds more of a young Jack Nicholson than he does a young Ford. Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) would have been the better choice as young Solo. There are loose connections to the Star Wars canon as well, including a surprise cameo late in the film that feels chronologically out of sync and cheap. In a nutshell, Solo: A Star Wars Story encapsulates the issues hindering each new franchise film since Disney acquired Star Wars parent LucasFilm Ltd. in 2012: We have filmmakers trying so hard to jam pack the movies with action, visual effects and connections to the first trilogy that they never tell a story well enough for it to stand on its own. Everything is catered to, and minimized for, the largest possible audience, and as a result, the movies lack conviction and integrity. George Lucas original and prequel trilogies certainly werent flawless, but at least their flaws werent as egregiously pandering as this. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Star Wars: Episode IX, allegedly the last Episode lm, is set for release Dec. 19, 2019.

tainment company is still headquartered there. So I am home grown in Fort Myers. I know a lot of the people in Fort Myers. That kind of keeps me wanting to do one event a year in my back yard. The Rock Pack show, which brings together singers from various rock bands to each perform several of their hits, was introduced in November 2015 at Germain Arena in Estero with a lineup that included Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, Mickey Thomas of Starship, Steve Walsh (formerly of Kansas), Fee Waybill of the Tubes and Bobby Kimball (formerly of Toto). That inaugural show also featured John Payne of Asia, who served as musical director and host for the singers and also performed that evening. The show has since returned to Germain Arena (with a different lineup of talent and show format) and also been held in a scaled-back version at The Ranch in Fort Myers. Now the Rock Pack show is back for a May 26 show at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. The lineup this time features a return appearance by Kimball, as well as John Elefante (singer in Kansas from 1981 to 1985 and vocalist on the hit tunes Play the Game Tonight and Fight Fire with Fire); Bill Champlin (a key member of Chicago from 1981 to 2009); Randall Hall (guitarist/backing vocalist in Lynyrd Skynyrd from 1987 to 1994 and leader of his own band); and Kevin Chalfant (briefly a member of Journey and later front man for the Storm, a band that also included Gregg Rollie, Ross Valory and Steve Smith of Journey). These singers are part of a growing roster of vocalists Demers has available to mix and match for Rock Pack performances. In addition to the performers on the Barbara B. Mann bill, Demers also works with, among others, Fran Cosmo (formerly of Boston), Brian Howe (formerly of Bad Company), Chuck Negron (of Three Dog Night), Denny Laine (of the Moody Blues and Paul McCartney and Wings) and Henry Gross. He said several factors tend to determine the lineup of artists for any Rock Pack show. A, the price tag, B, whos available, and C, whos got the greatest hits from back in the 0s and who wants to be part of a show, Demers said, ticking off the main considerations. The (goal on the) business side is to make it affordable for people. Not only is the Rock Pack concept working for Demers, its becoming quite popular with some veteran vocalists who are in the market for work. Amongst the industry, the artists themselves are really talking up the show, that this is a successful show and Kevin does a great job, Demers said, before offering a recent example. I got a call from Dubai with David Bickler, the guy from Survivor. So he called me wanting to get in because while he was in Dubai, Bill Champlin, ex-Chicago, and Bobby Kimball, formerly of Toto, were with him in concert. And you know, they all talked, they hang around and they talked me up. And David called me. He said Id love to get involved in your show. The Rock Pack show, Demers noted, is well suited to veteran rockers, some of whom have reached a point where long tours and singing upwards of 15 to 20 songs in a concert have become an issue for their health and their voices, or are not finding the same demand for their services as in years past. They cant go out on the road like 20 days in 25 nights. Their doctors would shoot them. The doctors basically give them (orders saying) you cant do this, Demers explained. So then a show like mine comes along where they can come out on the stage, sing five songs, belt it out, do the best they can, not hold back for 15 songs, he said. So its hit after hit, and its like going to five, or in this case, six concerts for the price of one. The number of songs each artist will perform during a Rock Pack show is one of the big changes Demers has made since the first show at Germain Arena. That initial show featured an unusual component involving Asia singer Payne. Using talk shows like Late Night with David Letterman as inspiration, seating was set up for the performers on stage and Payne conducted brief interview segments with the artists before they sang a few of their hits. Demers never liked that talk show component, and after that first show at Germain Arena, he parted company with Payne and scrapped the interviews. This has freed up time for the singers to go from performing three songs to five or six selections during Rock Pack concerts. I told Mr. Payne I didnt like this idea of the David Letterman thing because it took away from what people wanted to go see, Demers said, noting the show is about seeing and hearing hit music. We want to go chill out, have a few drinks, and just relax and have fun with our friends and our loved ones, everybody just party and have a good time. The situation with Payne is one of the few drawbacks and dramas that have come with the Rock Pack. Demers said he and the singer are currently in the midst of a legal dispute over ownership of the Rock Pack name and concept. Payne, on his own Rock Pack website, claims he created the concept for the show and has been involved in performances in Westbury, N.Y.; St. Charles, Mo. (near St. Louis); Canada; the Miami area; the Salt Lake City area; Hollywood, Fla.; and Trinidad. Demers, who has staged a pair of Rock Pack shows in Mexico (and has three more dates in that country set for later this year), as well as Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, expressed confidence that he will prevail. John Payne did not launch any of this. John Payne was hired by me as my musical director for my show and my acts, Demers said. I own the rights to the Rock Pack, the name, in the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica and Ive applied in Canada. He (Payne) only ever did that one event (the first show in 2015 at Germain Arena). But he was hired and under contract its in black and white as my musical director for my show and my acts. Otherwise, the Rock Pack project appears to be doing well for Demers, who has Rock Pack shows scheduled in June in New York City and El Paso, Texas. He doesnt plan to turn the Rock Pack into a full-scale tour and in fact is already doing about the number of shows hed ideally like to schedule per year. Id like to do one a month, he said, noting that opportunities such as the upcoming three-show run in Mexico fit that framework. Ive been averaging one and a half (shows) a month. One a month is a safe harbor. ROCKFrom page 1 The Rock Pack>> When: 8:30 p.m. May 26 >> Where: Barbara B.

This is where someone puts a glass or two or six of wine in front of you and says, OK what is it? Youre supposed to tell, just by seeing, sniffing and sipping, the grape varietal, what country and region its from, and whether its an older or more recent vintage. It isnt easy, and even the most experienced tasters sometimes get it wrong. I happen to be terrible at it. If you decide you want to be a sommelier and you pursue an official certification in the field, the ability to taste blind and nail the answers is a major part of the final exam. So, I was pleased to be invited to a new event staged by the Naples Wine Collection. Theyre calling it the Sommelier Showdown. The idea is that every Tuesday afternoon through May and June, two wine directors from clubs and restaurants in the area go head-to-head and blind taste four wines, attempting to identify them. Paying guests taste along and test their own skills against the pros. The first showdown was held on May 1, pitting Eric Blais, wine director at the USS Nemo restaurant, against Scott Manard, food and beverage manager at the Bonita Bay Club. Along with those two experts, there were about 20 of us trying our luck at the two whites and two reds that were set before us. Theres a method to this. First, a professional certifying organization like the Court of Master Sommeliers gives you a document specifying the probable wine varietals and regions that are fair game for the test. For example, if they give you a Sauvignon Blanc, it will be either from the Loire Valley in France, or from New Zealand. Theyre not trying to fool you with some almost-extinct varietal from an obscure region in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Second, theres an evaluation sheet (they call it a tasting grid) you fill out that classifies all the qualities of the wine youre guessing at: color, fruit and non-fruit flavors; structure, like acidity and alcohol levels; and finally, your determination of the primary grape, including where it comes from and the type of climate. As if. Well, as it turns out, Eric and Scott, while they didnt get every single one right, did better than the rest of us. I did the worst, but that doesnt stop me from listing some of my latest favorites, which I did not taste blind. Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc St. Helena 2016 ($14) Fermented completely in stainless steel, the wine preserves the varietals characteristic and bold grapefruit and pineapple aromas and flavors. However, its very round on the palate and not at all acidic. Very true to type. Watch for those lime and passionfruit flavors to kick in on the finish. WW 89. Grgich Hills Estate Zinfandel Napa Valley 2013 ($36) This Zinfandel departs from the traditional flavor profile in a delightful way. Not a typical fruit bomb, there are notes of white pepper, spice, leather, blackberry and about 3 percent Petite Sirah thrown in for complexity and structure. More complex than many Zins and a refreshing newer style. WW 89-90. Olema Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2014 ($23) Another favorite of ours, this wine has 3 percent Petite Sirah blended in for structure. Complex notes of black cherry, smoke, vanilla and tobacco the layers of flavor just go on and on. WW 92. Scala Dei Garnatxa 2016 ($20) A fresh aroma of ripe red berries with underlying mineral hints. Red berries on the finish and pleasant, well-balanced mouthfeel. WW 91. Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina 2013 ($24) A brilliant, clear scarlet red in the glass, with a complex nose of flowers, blackberry and blueberry. Some nutmeg and coffee in there as well. The tannins are fine grained, and theres a nice long finish. WW 90-91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Ive just become aware of a region in New Zealand called Central Otago. I know that New Zealand produces killer Sauvignon Blanc, but what is Central Otago known for? Nathan S., West Palm BeachA. Central Otago, at the south end of the South Island, has become justifiably well known for the quality of its Pinot Noir. In fact, many Sauvignon Blanc producers from Marlborough and the North Island are now trying their hand at this difficult varietal in the region. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Since their first vintage in 1990, the Evenstads have produced award-winning, world-class wines. Most recently, the Domaine Serene 2010 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir and the 2014 Evenstad Reserve Chardonnay were placed in the top three Wines of the World by Wine Spectator Magazine, marking the first time both a red and white wine from the same producer have been held in such high esteem by the publication. Additionally, Domaine Serene was awarded top Pinot Noir in the World in 2016 for their Winery Hill Pinot Noir, taking Platinum Best in Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards. The couple came full circle in their passion for great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay when they purchased the respected Burgundy wine estate, Chteau de la Cre, in April 2015. Owning and farming legendary vineyards in Burgundy is a dream come true for us, said Mr. Evenstad. We have a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity to make our own wines from famous vineyards like Morgeot in Chassagne-Montrachet, Clos des Angles in Volnay, and La Garenne in PulignyMontrachet, where world class wines have been made for centuries. Dating back to the 15th century, Chateau de la Cre is located in Santenay, Burgundy and includes seven rare Premier Cru blocks in the Cte dOr, home of some of the most renowned pinot noir and chardonnay wines in the world. By employing biodynamic farming practices to encourage optimal terroir expression and ensure the health of the soil and vines, the estate features a two-to-one varietal ratio of pinot noir to chardonnay, with forty percent of all plantings in premier cru sites. The Evanstads will be in attendance at the dinner to share and discuss selections like Evanstad Reserve Chardonnay 2016, Santenay Premier Cru Gravier 2013 and Evanstad Reserve Pinot Noir 2014. The French is located at 365 Fifth Ave. S. and tickets are $125 per person. For more information or to make reservations, call 3154019 or visit www.thefrenchnaples.com.

Jim Pepper is a third-generation butcher and restaurateur specializing in prized Wagyu beef, hard-to-find heritage Berkshire pork and exotic game meats as well as less mainstream cuts of lamb and veal. The latest addition to the Pepper family food empire is this smokehouse/caf/deli serving all-day brunch items, sandwiches, salads and more. Basic breakfast items like French toast are good, but Jimmy Ps is truly hog heaven for meat lovers. From the revelatory pea bacon to the juicy Wagyu burgers to the stellar house-cured pastrami that is amazingly fresh, tender, moist, smoky and not overwhelmed by salt or spices, Jimmy Ps is a carnivores delight. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2017 KC American Bistro, Pavilion Shopping Center, 885 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 566-2371. Never mind that you cant see this place from the road, concealed as it is on the side of a shopping center thats not the center of the Neapolitan universe. KC American Bistro has a loyal following and for good reason: Chef/owner Keith Casey is talented and creative and runs a first-class restaurant thats only gotten better in the eight years since he opened. Dishes are grouped by the region of the country from which they originate and its fun to mix and match. The Florida fresh ceviche, consisting of black grouper and yellowfin tuna with corn and bell pepper in a citrus marinade and cilantro crme fraiche, was less spicy than most, but flavorful nonetheless. The Maryland blue crab souffl was full of lump crab, lightly browned and crisp on a pool of sweet corn puree. Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus. Parsniplaced mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. For dessert: house-made chocolate ganache with wild berry coulis was rich and just right for two. Full bar.

CUISINE REVIEWOnce word gets out, food lovers will flock to Catch of the PelicanThere are some great things going on at Naples Grande these days and, if you havent been there in a while, I suggest you visit soon. Both the management and chef changed this winter, and the changes are definitely for the better. Lets start with the complimentary valet parking, which was especially nice on a rainy night such as Saturday when we visited. Our first stop was Mantra, the stylish lobby bar, where a friendly bartender whipped up two tasty cocktails an Asian Sensation ($13), a delicious blend of Hendricks gin, mango tea, sake and fresh kumquats, and a Mai Tai ($14), made with Wicked Dolphin rums, fresh lime, curacao and amaretto. The bar menu boasted a tempting array of tidbits, including sushi, dumplings, shrimp tempura, banh mi, Korean barbecue beef tacos and a yakitori platter. Knowing we were headed for a large meal, we split one Naples Blue sushi roll ($16), a stellar blend of sushi rice, blue crab, cucumber, avocado and sesame seed. Real crab in a sushi roll is a rare treat and it adds both flavor and texture that surimi cant. It was but a short walk to the restaurant, where the management changes became clearer still. Marcus Thompson formerly of The Turtle Club is the food and beverage manager. It was he who greeted us at the door and showed us to our table. Andy Philips, who studied at the Art Institute of San Diego and specializes in New American, Asian fusion and farmto-table cuisine, is the executive chef. It was evident early on that they know and enjoy what they are doing. The front of the house staff was also uniformly professional, welcoming and seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. We arrived a bit early, so Mr. Thompson had time to talk with us. Upon learning that my companion ate only seafood, he headed to the kitchen to ask the chef for something to start off our meal. (No, he didnt know I was reviewing the dinner. He was just being nice.) He returned with the Key West shrimp cocktail ($16), three plump, perfectly cooked shrimp served atop cocktail sauce that had a bit of coconut milk mixed in to give it a richer, less astringent flavor. They were topped with mango relish and tangles of crunchy wakame. A little loaf of fresh warm bread had three segments, one each of pumpernickel, whole wheat and white. Served with butter t opped with a bit of salt, it was difficult to limit ourselves to a small portion. A crab cake galette ($17) looked as if it had two floors or had been consuming copious amounts of steroids. The thing was gigantic and was as delicious as it was large. The crab had just enough filler to hold it together and there were flecks of red pepper and perhaps celery that gave it a slightly crunchy consistency. Wilted spinach beneath added a soft texture, microgreens on top more crunch and a grain mustard emulsion added a pleasant sharp finish. A bowl of steamed mussels ($15) contained more than two dozen shellfish bathed in a rich Philipino adobo broth with crisp garlic chips served with toast points for soaking up the sauce. They, too, were excellent. Appetizer portions were so generous we could have stopped here and been satisfied. Nonetheless, we soldiered on, heading into entrees of the Florida catch pan-seared black grouper ($37) and Southern fried chicken ($26). Not every kitchen can handle grouper, but this one can. It was thick, moist and flaky, seated on a fried green tomato and succotash, topped with a lemon verjus butter. The dish was plated beautifully and tasted as good as it looked. The chicken consisted of two large pieces fried in bread crumbs and served with collard greens and a buttermilk biscuit. The chicken was crisp but still moist within, and the biscuit was everything it should be tender, flaky, buttery. Only the collards disappointed too salty perhaps, because the copious amount of pork they were cooked with might have been saltier than usual. We wrapped things up with a wellcomposed Key lime tart that began with a graham crust that held a creamy filling that was neither too tart nor too sweet, topped with fresh berries, a leaf fashioned from dark chocolate, whipped cream and dollops of raspberry sauce. Despite the fact that we were full, we managed to finish every last bite. Let me not forget to mention our very able staff, particularly our server, Curtis, who was charming, personable, well informed about the menu and who made sure our wine and water glasses never ran dry, dishes came and went on time and our meal was pleasurable from start to finish. He was assisted by at least two other servers who were also smiling and nurturing. Now that the winter rush is over, I urge you to try this one out. With Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week running May 31 through June 13, the restaurant has put together a three-course, $36 menu that is a real bargain (check it out at swflrestaurantweek.com). You can also take advantage of 50 percent off selected bottles of wine during that time. This ones a catch indeed and not just for pelicans.
