Carl Hiaasen, Craig Pittman, Jeff Klinkenberg, Michael Grunwald, Lyn Milner, Fort Myers own Artis Henderson and Terry Richardson all powerful Florida voices may not know, to their great disadvantages. Maybe you dont, either. The single finest bookstore in and about the Sunshine State is beached in the tooshallow water of disinterest, exposed to the summer sun, struggling to swim and survive. People can visit on foot or online. But they arent, including writers with their hearts anchored in the hanging peninsula: novelists, historians, essayists, journalists, memoirists and all manner of others who would be lucky to own some of this collection but wont if the doors close. Which is why Im writing about it. The place is called Everglades Fine Books (www.evergladesfinebooks.com, telephone: 239-202-8992), located preposterously in a little strip mall on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers about 90 minutes from Palm Beach County or nine minutes from the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, just down the street. Elegant inside, EFB could be a venerable but ignored elder educated in another age but exiled to a side-porch rocker, impeccably groomed and dressed in polished wood floors, high ceilings, welcoming leather chairs and tidy rooms festooned with artifacts and books the meticulously kept volumes of both the famous and the obscure, the once-upon-a-time and the contemporary. The store includes some 6,000 titles, roughly 2,000 about Florida, Cuba and the Caribbean region alone, and 1,000 more about nautical and marine matters. Along with everything else. Many of those books are rare out of print or first edition volumes you cant find with your Kindle or order from Amazon. Most of them are fine or near-fine, in almost perfect condition. Many are signed by such bell-ringing luminaries as Ernest Hemingway, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Thomas McGuane, Nichol Dance or Larry McMurty. And all of them are the property of an exceptional but mostly unrecognized novelist himself who spent decades collecting them a tough, gnarly old fireball, sunspotted and broken-nailed, with a big heart and a restless, curious mind: Brady Vogt. His 2001 novel, Gladiolus Drive, is a brilliant, devastating, memorable look at field workers and immigrants, Crackers and Anglo growers at love and courage and grace, as well as the incalculable cruelty some of us can practice in the once massive gladiolus industry of Southwest Florida. Mr. Vogt would resemble Mark Twain if the old American seer had spent too much time in the sun. At three-score and 10, he continues to help maintain the gardens and grounds as a horticulturist at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, often on his hands and knees scrabbling in the dirt of a county where hes lived off and on since 1964. Hes selling his house on the river in Fort Myers, too, but not quickly enough for his liking. One gets the sense this relinquishing of books and home is a weighing of the anchor, a pointing of the vessel into the unknown, an embarkation in search of a white whale. As Herman Melville wrote in Moby Dick, his quintessential American novel, in 1851: We gave three heavy-hearted cheers, and blindly plunged like fate into the lone Atlantic. Sounds crazy for a self-described bibliomaniac, but Mr. Vogt is the best kind of crazy. Hes been afflicted wedded to books for many decades. He holds a book like a grateful paramour might hold a lover, with a tenderness and reverence that seems to breathe. He glides around the shop with the lissome energy of youth, animated by books, by ideas, by what he can offer in or with those volumes. For one thing, he can offer a peerless window into what came before us here, and therefore what we are. Gathering The Spanish Conquest of Florida into his hands, he admits, Id like to have been a time-traveler to have been with DeSoto. Why? Because they came for gold. Three years later, theyd shed their armor. All they wanted was corn, and women. Id like to know what that transition was like. Its a writers question, a book-lovers question, a truth-lovers question. Every title invites similar curiosity. The Florida Architecture of Addison Mizner, with a photo of the man himself.

The Plant Life of Highlands Hammock Florida, or the pausegiving Authentic History of the Ku Klux Klan, 1865-1877, by Susan Lawrence Davis, published by the American Library Service in New York, in 1924. Wait too long and that one will be gone. I want it, in part because I want to see and hear how the Klan was treated in print about the time my parents were born. Most or all of what the Florida-based writer Harry Crews wrote, is here the late Mr. Crews, a writer of Dark Fiction, according The New York Times, was also Mr. Vogts friend. Everything the great American novelist Larry McMurtry has written so far is here, signed by the author, another friend. Everything John D. MacDonald wrote, and everything Randy Wayne White has written again, signed. Along with many others, all for sale now. None of these books should be considered a Classic, as Mark Twain put it: a book which people praise and dont read. Instead, theyre windows, all of them.

And so it should about the poisonous kookery of Roseanne Barr. Given the political freight piled atop the hit revival of her TV program, it was inevitable that Barrs spectacular Twitter flameout would be interpreted as a portentous statement on Donald Trumps America. Chris Hayes of MSNBC says that her problem turned out to be that she far too authentically represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base. Activist Michaela Angela Davis said on CNN that Trump had enabled Barr a common theme on the left and then went all the way: Asked point-blank if all Trump voters are racist, she said, Yes. Nothing so perfectly encapsulates the dynamic of the Trump era than a TV show that was supposed to be a sympathetic portrayal of Trump supporters by liberal America leading once again to the ritualistic denunciation of Trump supporters by liberal America. Barr is not a typical Trump voter just because she played one on TV. She shares much more in common with a celebrity culture that never lacks for its share of nut jobs and toxic personalities, especially among comics. Her wild ramblings dont tell us anything about what Trump voters think, about the state of race relations in America, or about working-class culture. Her crackpot views are all her own. Roseanne was a kook long before President Trump showed up. She maintained that Sept. 11 was an inside Bush job. She used to call Israel a Nazi state and denounce warmongering American rabbis, before turning around and calling Hillary Clinton anti-Semitic and Huma Abedin a filthy Nazi whore. Her subsequent explanations for her heinous Valerie Jarrett tweet should make it clear she thought Jarrett was a Saudi, or a maybe a Jewish Persian that this is fundamentally a story about an unhinged person advertising her lunacy on social media. Of course, Trump gave his critics reason to associate him with Barr by calling her to congratulate her on her show and eagerly trumpeting its success. Trumps boosterism was typical of him its all about the ratings but also reflects an endemic weakness of the right. We have low regard for pop culture, but crave its validation. If it must come via a program that is a 1990s throwback reliant on a ticking time bomb of a star, so be it. The genesis of the Roseanne revival was innocent and laudable enough. The president of Disney-ABC Television Group explained the shows inception after the 2016 election: We looked at each other and said, Theres a lot about the country we need to learn a lot more about, here on the coasts. He was right. The appetite for the show, which partook of none of the toxicity of Roseannes real-life personality, speaks of the hunger for more programming about Red America. Surely, there must be other vehicles for that assuming Hollywood doesnt internalize the critique of Roseanne Barr as a characteristic Trump voter. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYKing Features OPINIONObama took lying to new heights with the Iran dealWhen it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration increasingly appears to have been a bottomless pit of deception. First, President Barack Obama failed to disclose to Congress the existence of secret side deals on inspections when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. (They were only uncovered by chance when then-Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., learned about them during a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna.) Then, we learned that the Obama administration had secretly sent a plane to Tehran loaded with $400 million in Swiss francs, euros and other currencies on the same day Iran released four American hostages, which was followed by two more secret flights carrying another $1.3 billion in cash. Now, in a bombshell revelation, Republicans on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, led by Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, have revealed in a new report that the Obama administration secretly tried to help Iran use U.S. banks to convert $5.7 billion in Iranian assets, after promising Congress that Iran would not get access to the U.S. financial system and then lied to Congress about what it had done. (Full disclosure: My wife works for Portman) In July 2015, Obama Treasury Secretary Jack Lew assured the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that, under the nuclear accord, Iran will continue to be denied access to the U.S. financial and commercial market and that Iranian banks will not be able to clear U.S. dollars through New York, hold correspondent account relationships with U.S. financial institutions, or enter into financing arrangements with U.S. banks. A few weeks later, one of Lews top deputies, Adam Szubin, used the exact same words in testimony to the Senate banking committee. But Senate investigators found that on Feb. 24, 2016, the Obama Treasury Department granted a specific license that authorized a conversion of Iranian assets worth billions of U.S. dollars using the U.S. financial system exactly what Lew and Szubin said would not happen including unlimited future Iranian deposits at Bank Muscat in Oman until the license expired. Not only that, Senate investigators found that officials from the Office of Foreign Assets Control, which regulates U.S. banks compliance with U.S. sanctions law, encouraged two U.S. correspondent banks to convert the funds. The report says both banks declined to complete the transaction due to compliance, reputational, and legal risks associated with doing business with Iran. Then, after issuing the license, the Obama administration explicitly denied to Congress that it had done so. Lew and Szubin both failed to disclose the license in congressional testimony while continuing to assert that the Obama administration would not give Iran access to U.S. financial institutions when they had just tried to do so. And in a June 2016 letter to Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., Treasury officials declared The U.S. Department of Treasury is not working on behalf of Iran to enable Iranian access to U.S. dollars elsewhere in the international financial system, nor are we assisting Iran in gaining access to dollar payment systems outside the U.S. financial system. The Administration has not been and is not planning to grant Iran access to the U.S. financial system. This was patently false. Investigators also found internal State Department emails, in which officials admitted that the Obama administration had exceeded our JCPOA commitments by authorizing Iranian access to U.S. banks. Furthermore, the report reveals that the Obama administration put on more than 200 roadshows across the world where they encouraged foreign financial institutions to do business with Iran as long as the rest of the world left the United States out of it. According to the report, during a roadshow in London, OFAC Director John Smith downplayed the likelihood of any future penalties or fines, telling the audience that 95 percent of the time OFAC sees an apparent violation it results in a simple warning letter or no enforcement action. In other words, the Obama administration: (1) told Congress it would not allow Iran access to U.S. financial institutions; (2) issued a special license allowing Iran to do exactly that; (3) unsuccessfully pressured U.S. banks to help Iran; (4) lied to Congress and the American people about what it had done; (5) admitted in internal emails that these efforts exceeded U.S. obligations under the nuclear deal; (6) sent officials, including bank regulators, around the world to urge foreign financial institutions to do business with Iran; and (7) promised that they would get nothing more than a slap on the wrist for violating U.S. sanctions. How bad is this? Remove the words Obama and Iran and replace them with Trump and Russia and imagine the outrage that would ensue over the same revelations. Democrats would be holding news conferences, and the story would be front-page news. We hear a lot these days from the media about the danger of presidential lies. Well, when it comes to the Iran deal, the Obama administration took lying to new heights. And no, thats not Fake News. mark THEISSENWashington Post

GUEST OPINIONBring on the immigrants BY DAVE TRECKERSpecial to Florida WeeklyWhile the debate on immigration sputters along, we risk overlooking the real problem which is not about building a wall or sieving out terrorists or reuniting families. Thats all secondary. The real problem is we dont have enough workers. We need more immigrants, not fewer. And we need them now.A Wall Street Journal headline reads, U.S. Has More Job Openings than Jobless. The country is facing a severe labor shortage. There are 6.7 million job openings and, with unemployment the lowest in decades, we cant begin to fill those jobs internally. And it will get worse. At the current pace, unfilled openings will increase to 8.2 million over the next ten years.From computer engineers to farm workers to temporary summer help, the labor shortfall is staggering. The Institute for Supply Management says 78 percent of U.S. manufacturers cant find enough workers. Barrons reports an acute shortage of workers in construction, trucking and retailing. There are a ton of unfilled jobs in high-tech fields. U.S. schools cant turn out engineers and software writers fast enough to meet demand. CompTIA, an information technology trade association, says there are nearly 630,000 unfilled positions. By 2030, the WSJ reports an additional 700,000 engineers and computer experts will be needed just to support artificial intelligence growth. Labor shortages arent limited to high-tech fields. Workers are sorely needed in food services, fisheries and particularly relevant to Florida in hospitality (think tourism) and agriculture. Its a particular problem for low-value crops like tomatoes and oranges. While some farm work is mechanized, most produce is still handpicked. To fill immediate needs, its estimated at least 120,000 H-2B visas are needed. Focusing on Florida, Michelle Dennard wrote in the Naples Daily News that there are 46,000 current openings in health care, 64,000 in construction, 42,000 in information technology and 9,000 in manufacturing. What happened? Where did this labor shortage come from? Demographers say its a combination of things. Birth rates are at their lowest level in decades, and increasing life spans are taking people out of the workplace. Foreign workers arent staying. (More Mexican farm hands left than came in between 2009 and 2014.) And there has been a poor match of education with available jobs, particularly in the science and engineering fields where there are perennial shortfalls.Can the government help? Absolutely. It should be a no-brainer. Legalize the Dreamers. Provide more green cards and expand H-1B and H-2B visas. Do whatever it takes to bring in more foreign workers.But thats not whats happening. Last month the Trump Administration added a paltry 15,000 H-2B visas for low-skilled workers to the 66,000 visas now available. The government also cut green card allocations. And, as a final insult, the feds raised hurdles for obtaining H-1B skill-based visas; there are only 85,000 currently available, a woefully low number. Discouraged and with little government help, employers are taking steps of their own. Many companies have lowered standards, hiring undertrained adults and even high-schoolers to fill openings. Others are underwriting education and providing at-work training AT&T, Home Depot, Walmart and McDonalds among them. Still others, using the Optional Practical Training program, are scooping up foreign graduates of American colleges, particularly in the STEM fields. Up training through internships and apprenticeships has also helped. To its credit, Florida has been among the nations leaders in promoting apprenticeships as a way to bridge the gap between education and the workplace. Finally, there has been a push for vocational training. No longer the ugly duckling of American education, trade schools provide the best employment bang for the buck, with total costs averaging under $18,000 per year compared with $40,000 and up for four-year colleges. And technical training is a sure conduit to employment, the best possible way to match up with available jobs. While all of this helps, we cant beat the labor shortage by just reconfiguring education. We need a massive infusion of immigrants, chosen for skills, and a doubling or tripling of H-1B and H-2B visas. This should be a national priority. If we dont seize this opportunity for growth, you can bet that growth will go elsewhere, propelled by the workers we turn away. A Naples resident, Dave Trecker is a retired Pfizer executive.

MONEY & INVESTINGU.S. Steel might be a steal, in the short termWhat do you do with a stock that has terrible fundamentals yet some external force makes it a huge buying opportunity? This is the dilemma that investors in U.S. Steel currently face. The company has been mismanaged for decades and was on the verge of insolvency only a couple of years ago. Yet today, the company is opening new plants, hiring new workers, and the stock continues to make new highs because of one factor the Trump steel tariffs. So, is U.S. Steel a good investment today and what does the future hold for this once great company? U.S. Steel was founded in 1901 after JP Morgan combined Carnegie Steel Company, Federal Steel Company and National Steel company into one entity. It was the largest steel company in the world and soon became the largest business in the world, being the first company to be worth more than $1 billion. At the start of World War II, the company employed over 340,000 employees and soon thereafter produced over 35 million tons of steel per year. However, in the following decades U.S. Steel ran into multiple problems, one being issues with its unionized labor force and increased costs of production. At the same time, the company started to face increased competition from international steel producers that could produce at a much lower cost. As a result, U.S. Steel began the process of laying off workers and closing plants as the company lost orders to mostly foreign competitors. Steel companies were helped by the Regan administration in the 1980s with massive tax breaks to better compete. But instead of investing in new technologies to modernize its plants, the company decided to diversify into energy production with its purchase of Marathon Oil. As a result, the company failed to move into a new, cheaper way to produce steel via mini-mills. Other companies, like Nucor, embraced this new technology of producing steel using scrap metal as a raw material and an electric arc furnace. As the price of steel fell, blast furnaces with high, but stable, fixed costs operated at a loss as mini mills ran profitably. Today, U.S. Steel is again a stand alone steel producer having spun off its energy assets and it still runs integrated blast furnaces. Things were looking very bleak for this company until President Trump announced 25 percent tariffs on imported steel. This, combined with overall higher steel demand due to higher global economic growth rates, resulted in a 38 percent increase in steel prices in 2018 so far. This was the lifeline that U.S. Steel needed as all this price increase directly hits its bottom line due to its stable cost structure. Just last week, the company announced it was re-opening one of its moth-balled blast furnaces and hiring 300 new workers to run it. As a potential investor, I would be a buyer of the stock now despite its recent run up. It is still relatively inexpensive, at a P/E of only 13, and does pay a small dividend. And with high steel prices and now higher volume with the reopening of once-shutter ed furnaces, I think this company will outperform in the near term. But once steel prices begin to fall again either because of the end of tariffs or slower global economic growth, I would be quick to trade out of the stock.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwithin a hairs breadth of nuclear war. That day, Capt. McIlmoyle piloted his aircraft over Cuba in search of the sites of surface-to-air missiles the Soviets were suspected to have installed. As he approached the third and final target along the northeast coast of the lush tropical island, all appeared peaceful until he looked in his rear-view mirror. Capt. McIlmoyle spotted two condensation trails from what appeared to be missiles launched from somewhere the island. One missile exploded only 5,000 feet away; the second, 10,000 feet. As soon as I saw the contrails, I didnt know whether my tracking camera captured the shot, recalled Capt. McIlmoyle, 88, who lives in Venice. I knew the missile couldnt turn with me. I could turn shorter and faster and smarter. I turned the camera back on, took pictures of the contrails and detonations, kept turning around and headed to Orlando. As soon as his plane touched down in Orlando, the film from his mission was collected and sent to Washington, D.C., for immediate analysis. As usual, Capt. McIlmoyle briefed his commanders and shared his story with the rest of his crew. The next day, a three-star general paid a visit to the base and asked to see Capt. McIlmoyle. Nothing showed up on the film, the general told him. You were not fired upon. But Capt. McIlmoyle knew hed seen the contrails, seen the missiles explode. General, missiles were shot at my plane, Capt. McIlmoyle said. Again, the response was the same: The cameras on Capt. McIlmoyles plane caught only the sites of the surface to air missiles nothing more. He later came to suspect that the photos were suppressed to avoid military action against Cuba. There were political implications behind releasing the photos, Capt. McIlmoyle said. I dont believe that (President John F.) Kennedy ever saw or heard about them. If he had, he would have been forced to bomb the island. The former Air Force pilots story is featured in the book Above and Beyond, by Michael Tougias and Casey Sherman, who also co-authored The Finest Hours, which was adapted into a theatrical film. Above and Beyond tells the story of the Cuban missile crisis through the eyes of the pilotswho launched out of McCoy Air Force Base in Orlando. Capt. McIlmoyle narr owly escaped being shot down by a Soviet surface to air missile. The next pilot to launch two days later, Maj. Rudolph Anderson, was not so lucky. He died in the line of duty. Most of the people I talked to did not know that one of our pilots was shot down by the Soviets in the Cuban missile crisis, Mr. Tougias said. They thought it ended peacefully, but there was one combat casualty. When the book was done, I had a couple of feelings. One was fear. There were so many times during the crisis that we came within a whisker of nuclear war. I also came away with a real respect for Kennedys level-headed process.Black SaturdayThe crisis began on Oct. 14, 1962, when a U-2 pilot photographed an SS-4 medium-range ballistic missile under assembly for installation. Nuclear-armed Soviet missiles were being assembled and installed in Cuba just 90 miles from the Florida coast. Two days later, President Kennedy was briefed, and he gathered officials and advisers to form the Executive Committee, or ExCom. For nearly two weeks, the ExCom and its Soviet counterparts would wrestle with the diplomatic and military crisis. On Oct. 22, President Kennedy ordered a naval blockade around Cuba. The same day, the president notified the public about the presence of nuclear missiles on the island, and the rationale behind the U.S. naval blockade. The president made one thing clear: The United States would take whatever action it deemed necessary to neutralize the threat. The public especially in Key West knew long before Kennedy announced the crisis that something was happening, Mr. Tougias said. There were constantly military planes coming in and troop movements. Anyone old enough who lived in Florida at the time particularly Key West would remember people building bomb shelters in their backyards. On Oct. 24, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev responded with a statement calling the quarantine an act of aggression, and allowed Russian ships to approach the U.S. naval line. By that afternoon, the Soviets indicated that they would remove nuclear missiles from Cuba if the United States promised not to invade the island. But on Oct. 27, which became known as Black Saturday, Maj. Anderson was shot down and killed over Cuba while flying his U-2 spy plane. Soviet generals on the ground gave the order to fire surface-to-air missiles, one of which struck Maj. Andersons aircraft. The generals did not have authorization from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to shoot down the plane, and this incident could have triggered war, Mr. Tougias said. When the word came out that Maj. Anderson was shot down, Air Force Gen. Curtis Lemay had jets on the runway, ready to go. But Kennedy changed course. He essentially said, No, not yet. Lets give it another 24 hours. I think were making progress on the negotiation points. Ultimately, President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev reached the agreed peaceful resolution: The Soviets would remove nuclear missiles from Cuba, and the United States would not invade the island. Quietly, President Kennedy also ordered the removal of nuclear missiles in Turkey. I think the Soviet leaders were worried that someone at a lower level might make a mistake like what happened on Black Saturday, Mr. Tougias said. The situation could quickly spin out of control and purge both nations into war.Florida at the fore Nearly every section of Florida played some role in the Cuban missile crisis and its ultimate resolution, Mr. Tougias said. Steve Heyser, the pilot who initially discovered the missiles, was born and raised in, and later retired to, Apalachicola. All the U-2 spy planes launched from McCoy Air Force Base in Orlando a major setting in the book. Out of Key West, Crusaders low-flying intelligence planes were launched, bringing film directly to Jacksonville for analysis after each mission over Cuba. These planes dodged flack and even machine gun fire by the Cubans, Mr. Tougias said. President Kennedys Winter White House, on Peanut Island off West Palm Beach, housed the presidents nuclear bunker. The president asked the Air Force to spread planes throughout the state, including at West Palm Beach Airport. Miami was a major staging area for the potential invasion of Cuba, Mr. Tougias said. We were going to invade the day after Black Saturday. This would have been on the scale of D-Day. Once the crisis was resolved, President Kennedy flew to Homestead to personally thank the U-2 pilots who found the missile sites, and he asked to see one of the planes up close. I was standing by the doors in front of the U-2 hangar, Capt. McIlmoyle recalled. I opened the doors, and President Kennedy and his entourage came in.SPIESFrom page 1 SOURCE: GLOBALAIRCCRAFT.ORGThe original version of the spy plane, manufactured by Lockheed, made its rst ight in August 1955.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 NEWS A11The president exited the car. Capt. McIlmoyle snapped to attention and saluted. He wasnt having any of that saluting stuff, Capt. McIlmoyle said. He grabbed me by the hand and introduced himself. He approached the plane with the president. It was just me and him, Capt. McIlmoyle said of his roughly 30 minutes of one-on-one time with President Kennedy. When we got through, and he said goodbye, the president of the United States put his put his hand along my shoulder with his face a foot away from mine. He said, I will never be able to thank you men enough for bringing back those pictures that allowed me to peacefully bring this crisis to a solution.Proof positiveMr. Tougias said that the Cuban missile crisis and how President Kennedy handled the response offers many lessons for the current administration on how to handle a crisis. Without getting political, this was a great case study. As a leader, you have to be crystal clear on communication, so your adversary knows your intentions, he explained. Kennedy tried to follow that principle. He knew that one move could be interpreted incorrectly and nuclear war would start. My theory is that Kennedy used every one of those 13 days to try to peacefully solve the crisis before we were forced to bomb Cuba. As for Capt. McIlmoyle, validation came many years later. Later rising to the rank of brigadier general, Jerry McIlmoyle was working in Washington, D.C., under then-President Ronald Reagan. At the time, he was in charge of the U.S. nuclear codes. After a high-level briefing with members of the CIA, one official approached Capt. McIlmoyle. Sir, is there anything I can do for you? he asked. I knew I had been shot at, but there was doubt in other peoples minds, Capt. McIlmoyle said. So, I asked him if he could find the photographs that I took. He picked up the phone and got hold of the guy who happened to be the photo interpreter from that mission. The official asked, Did you get pictures of two missiles going up behind Gen. Capt. McIlmoyles plane? I certainly do, he responded. Sir, you were most definitely shot at by two surface-to-air missiles. Lesser-known facts about the Cuban Missile Crisis>> A U.S. U-2 spy plane accidently invaded Russian airspace on the very same day they shot down Maj. Rudolph Anderson over Cuba. The accidental incursion over Russia was the result of the U-2 pilot, Capt. Chuck Maultsby, becoming disoriented by the Northern Lights while collecting radioactive samples over the North Pole. Soviet MIGs launched to bring down Capt. Maultsby, who narrowly escaped. >> Soviet Capt. Vasili Arkhipov likely prevented the commander of a Soviet submarine from ring his nuclear torpedo at a U.S. aircraft carrier. U.S. planes and destroyers were dropping dummy, or practice, depth charges to force the sub to surface. The commander on the sub thought World War III had broken out, so he ordered his nuclear torpedo be prepared for ring. The commander was quoted as saying, We will die, but we will sink them all! Capt. Arkhipov was able to talk the commander out of launching the torpedo, and instead convinced him to surface. >> Upon rst learning the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles in Cuba, Air Force head Gen. Curtis Lemay advocated an immediate strike against all Russian installations on the island. During one of the Executive Committee meetings, Gen. Lemay challenged President John F. Kennedy, saying the presidents blockade would be considered weak and would not work. Later, he condescendingly told President Kennedy, Youre in a pretty bad x. The president responded, Youre in it with me. Source: Michael Tougias >> Above and Beyond: John F. Kennedy and Americas Most Dangerous Cold War Spy Mission By Casey Sherman and Michael J.

Sale through 06-17-18. BEHIND THE WHEELVolkswagens new Jetta is almost an AudiFor those who didnt already know it, Audi is in the Volkswagen family. The new 2019 VW Jetta is more proof of that than ever before. The deep ridges in the hood set off a theme of well-creased lines that start at the headlight and run the whole length of the car. Anyone familiar with the Audi A4 and A5 will immediately recognize these elements. The VW improves on its corporate cousins look with a style line that incorporates the door handles and also wraps around the rear to frame the taillights. Details like the sharp-edge headlights and integrated rear spoiler are quite Audi-like, too. The new Jetta even carries a hint of the brands hallmark trapezoidal grille. A good Audi salesperson can point out the true difference between the premium brand and VWs product. Still, for the rest of us, the Jetta has a very up-market look. Not bad for a car that starts at $19,395. The interior is arguably more impressive than the exterior. The previous Jetta always made a striking first impression with its materials quality and overall design. It was just a letdown when it came to technology. The new car changes that. It starts with the standard 6.5-inch touchscreen in the center of the car nearly a one-third larger than its predecessor. Its set higher up and built like an integral part of the dash. The functionality is close to the same as the old Jetta, but by being bigger and more prominent, it has become a true centerpiece. The new Jetta currently has five trim levels. Moving up from the first rung is a large step to the $23k SE model. This extra money buys better safety features and a large panoramic sunroof (just like the ones found in Audis). The upper two trims come standard with an impressive display package. The $25k SEL has a larger 8-inch touchscreen and Volkswagens Digital Cockpit that uses a display screen to individualize the drivers gauges. Topping the range is the SEL Premium starting at $27,795. It includes leather seats and now theres a navigation display that can go right in front of the driver (yet another very Audi-like feature). No matter the trim-level, everyone gets a good amount of personal space. The old Jetta was already known for being roomy, and so while the new 2019 car is only a bit larger, this current compact car has the kind of space that would rival mid-size machines from a decade ago. Out on the road, the suspension is exactly whats expected from a German sedan. Its predictable and feels tight with an overall nice sportiness. But this is a family-style car foremost, so there is no stiff ride harshness. Volkswagen invested in being a stylish sedan that can be a good people mover, too. That meant less money in the budget for motors. The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder from the previous Jetta is the sole power plant currently available. VW did upgrade the two transmission choices with more gears (a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic) to give it improved fuel economy. The motor develops enough lowend torque to get away from stoplights quickly, and the turbo feels good around town. Still, there are some higher speed situations where this feels wanting. VW is aware of this, too. Thats why a 2.0liter turbo GLI version is in the pipeline for the more power-hungry drivers. The new Jetta is not an Audi hiding behind a VW badge. But the sedan undeniably used its family connections to tap into that premium magic, and at the same time, provides a value-minded package. So while there are other economy sedans available for even less money, this one asks for a little extra and delivers a lot more. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire FamilyThe passing paradeNinety-six-year-old Barney Smith of Alamo Heights, Texas, is known around those parts as the King of the Commode for his lifes work: more than 1,300 decorated toilet seats, all displayed in the retired master plumbers Toilet Seat Art Museum. But now, he concedes, its time to put a lid on it: Im beginning to feel like Id rather be in an air-conditioned home in a chair, looking at a good program, Smith, who is bent with arthritis and uses a cane, told the Associated Press on May 22. Inside the metalgarage museum the collection includes toilet lids decorated with a chunk of the Berlin Wall, a piece of insulation from the Space Shuttle Challenger, Pez dispensers and flint arrowheads, along with the toilet lid from the airplane that carried Aristotle Onassis body back to Greece after his death. Smith told his wife, Louise, that he would stop at 500 pieces, but that was 850 lids ago. If I would have just read my Bible as many hours as I spent on my toilet seats, Id be a better man, Smith said. Louise died in 2014, and Smith took a fall recently and broke some ribs. Now hes looking for someone who will keep the museum intact: This is my lifes history here.PrecociousOn May 20, as a handful of adults enjoyed the swings at Angel Park in southwest Atlanta, two children walked up and asked to use the swing set. The adults agreed and started to walk away, reported The (Macon, Georgia) Telegraph, when the boys, about 6 and 12 years old, pulled out rocks the size of baseballs and what appeared to be a black handgun. They threw the rocks, hitting one man on the calf and causing an abrasion, according to Atlanta police. The older boy held the gun and pointed it at the adults, who ran away as the boys ran in the opposite direction. Earlier in May, two children were reported for an alleged armed carjacking in the same neighborhood.Oops!Pesky weeds around his garage caused a Springfield Township, Ohio, resident to resort to extreme measures: The unnamed homeowner tried to eliminate them with a torch, and instead set the garage on fire. Firefighters were called to the scene at 4 a.m. on May 24, where they found the detached garage fully involved, according to the Springfield News-Sun. The structure was a total loss, including tools and appliances inside, valued at $10,000 to $15,000.Crime report Three men were arrested on May 20 after stealing a 25-foot-long shed from a foreclosed property in Lebanon, Maine, and dragging it down the street behind their pickup truck, according to the Portland Press Herald. Matthew Thompson of Lebanon, Timothy James of Pembroke, N.H., and Robert Breton of Milton, N.H., were spotted in the act by a concerned citizen, who alerted Maine State Police. In addition, Thompson was found to have crystal meth and prescription pills that were not prescribed to him. All three were taken to the York County Jail and held on $5,000 bail. Patrick Gillis, 18, a senior at Highlands High School and a volunteer firefighter for the Pioneer Hose Fire Department in Brackenridge, Pa., told police he just wanted to respond to a fire on May 21, when he was arrested for starting a blaze in a vacant duplex where he used to live. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that witnesses told investigators Gillis was seen at the home before the fire started, then returned as a firefighter to help put it out. He admitted to setting a piece of paper on fire and putting it in the microwave, then leaving. The Allegheny County Fire Marshals Office estimated damage at $150,000, and Gillis was charged with arson.Bright ideas Toronto police constables Vittorio Dominelli, 36, and Jamie Young, 35, had to call for backup in January during a raid on a marijuana dispensary after allegedly sampling some of the evidence. CTV News reported the officers called for help after they began hallucinating, one eventually climbing a tree. In a May 23 press release, Toronto police announced the two officers had been suspended and now face criminal charges in the incident. A senior prank went unexpectedly wrong for high school student Kylan Scheele, 18, of Independence, Mo., when he was slapped with a three-day suspension on May 23 and barred from participating in graduation after putting his high school up for sale on Craigslist. Scheele said it was meant to be a joke. Other people were going to release live mice ... I thought, lets do something more laid back, he told Fox 4. The ad for Truman High School listed attractive amenities such as newly built athletic fields, lots of parking and a bigger than normal dining room. A lawsuit filed against the school district by the ACLU of Missouri failed to reduce the punishment.Still creepyBefore Chuck E. Cheese was a thing, it was ShowBiz Pizza, complete with the Rock-afire Explosion Band, an animatronic combo that is still the stuff of nightmares. On May 24, the Rock-afire Explosion Band was reunited at a new arcade bar in Kansas City, Mo., also called Rock-afire. The bands inventor, Aaron Fechter of Creative Engineering in Orlando, refurbished the band members with new masks, skin and costumes, and the playlist is set to include old standards as well as more contemporary hits. Bar owner James Bond was a huge fan of the band as a child: You didnt know whether they were fake or real, he told The Kansas City Star.

NCH, along with many other progressive health care systems, has been serving its neighbors with a hub-and-spoke model by locating commonly needed health services in the communities it serves. Frequently used health services such as Emergency or Immediate Care, physician or non-physician practitioner visits, and other ancillary services such as diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation therapy, sleep centers, etc. are now in locations matching the growth of Southwest Florida. Patients needing hospitalization are easily and quickly referred to either of our hospitals Baker Hospital or North Naples Hospital. Healthcare, at $3.4 trillion, consumes almost 18 percent of the nations Gross Domestic Producta far greater percentage and amount than any other country. Spending so much on healthcare decreases the funding for other important common needs such as education, environment, and infrastructure. This week we opened NCH Healthcare Southeast at 7717 Collier Blvd. with the following services: NCH Immediate Care treating non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, welcoming walk-ins from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily except Sunday, noon to 7 p.m., 624-8220.

The UF study suggests that more than focusing on any particular food group, cancer survivors should strive for a diet rich in a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, proteins and dairy at recommended serving sizes for age, height and weight. The findings appear in the journal JNCI Cancer Spectrum. Dietary guidelines for cancer survivors have been limited or have tended to focus on specific food recommendations for people with particular cancers, said the studys senior author Kalyani Sonawane, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the department of health services research, management and policy at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. For example, colon cancer survivors have been cautioned to limit red meat consumption.While dietary guidelines for the public have moved toward a total diet approach, such an approach has not been extensively studied among cancer survivors, Ms. Sonawane said. Its just like what our grandmothers used to say: eating foods in moderation is good for your health. That is the idea behind looking at a total diet approach and canc er outc omes.To determine how an overall healthy diet might impact cancer survivors outcomes, the UF team analyzed data collected between 1988 and 1994 by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics to assess the health and nutritional status of American adults and children. The surveys interview component asks participants to report everything they had eaten over the previous 24 hours. The UF research team identified nearly 1,200 cancer survivors among the participants and assessed their diets using the Healthy Eating Index score, a measure of diet quality based on the U.S. Department of Agricultures Dietary Guidelines for Americans. A high score indicates a healthy overall diet that conforms to the guidelines serving recommendations for fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, dairy, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and includes sufficient food variety. Next, UF investigators linked those study participants to records in the National Center for Health Statistics Linked Mortality Files through 2011. During an average follow-up period of 17 years, 600 of the participants had died. They found that cancer survivors who scored high on the Healthy Eating Index were 65 percent less likely to die allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

WEISSFrom page 20DIETFrom page 20from cancer than survivors who ate a poor-quality diet. The researchers analyzed individual dietary components, such as salt or meat consumption, but found that the strongest predictor of decreased mortality risk was based on the overall diet. They also examined diet and mortality for survivors of all cancers, as well as for sub groups of skin and breast cancer survivors. The findings were consistent among these sub groups, that eating an overall healthy diet was associated with decreased mortality risk, whether it is mortality from any cause or cancerspecific mortality, said the studys lead author Ashish A. Deshmukh, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the UF department of health services research, management and policy. The researchers say the study provides initial evidence of the benefits of a total diet approach for cancer survivors and that more research is needed, such as studies that prove a cause and effect relationship between healthy diet and cancer o utcomes. Yet, there is no harm in cancer survivors, or anyone, aiming for a highquality, balanced diet, the investigators say. They encourage people to review recommended foods and serving sizes available from resources such as MyPlate, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 and Healthy People 2020.

STOPPS & KIDWELL FREE Introductory Consultation! PE T T ALESMind melt? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationRose was restless and agitated around dinnertime. The 11-year-old fawn pug paced, couldnt settle down, and growled, snarled and snapped at her companion pug. Rose was normally a sweet dog, so the behavior was uncharacteristic. Her actions were specific to that time of day and faded as the evening wore on. Owner Linda Lombardi took Rose to the veterinarian to see if a health problem or pain might be causing the unusual behavior. Nothing stood out, and Lombardi and her veterinarian wondered if Roses actions might be signs of cognitive dysfunction. With age, some dogs and cats show signs of deteriorating mental ability, much like dementia or Alzheimers disease in humans. Theres not a specific diagnostic test for it, but it may be a possibility if other health problems are ruled out and the pet exhibits common signs such as disorientation, changes in interactions with owners or other pets, disturbances in sleep-wake times, breaking housetraining, or changes in activity. (The acronym DISHA is a handy way to remember the signs.) Roses actions were a classic indication of cognitive dysfunction, or CD. A number of studies have examined the prevalence of spontaneously reported behavioral signs in senior pets referred to behavioral specialists, says veterinary neurologist Richard A. LeCouteur, DVM. In two canine studies, behavioral complaints related to aggression or fear and anxiety were most prevalent. Theres no cure for CD, but it can be managed in several ways. Roses veterinarian prescribed a drug called selegiline (Anipryl). Its thought to work by enhancing dopamine and other catecholamines (hormones such as epinephrine and norepinephrine) in the cortex, causing an increase in cognitive functioning, says veterinary behaviorist Pamela J. Perry, DVM, Ph.D. It may also aid nervous system structure or function by reducing free radical production or increasing free radical-scavenging enzymes. The only way to confirm if it was CD was to try the meds, and if they helped, that was the right diagnosis, Ms. Lombardi says. It was a huge help. I felt like it gave me my dog back. The drug, which is sometimes used off-label in cats, has mixed results. Its estimated that one-third of animals respond well, one-third have some response and one-third experience no change. It can take two to six weeks to see a benefit, and if no improvement occurs by two months, the medication probably isnt going to help. Animals taking drugs such as tramadol, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants or tick preventives containing Amitraz should not take selegiline. Medication isnt the only way to help a pet with CD. Mental enrichment can help to maintain cognitive function, Dr. Perry says. That includes play, gentle exercise, food toys, short reward-based training sessions (practicing tricks or obedience skills) and fun social interactions. Keep your pets routine consistent. Schedule meals, walks and other activities at the same time every day, as much as possible. If your pet is sleeping at odd hours and waking you in the middle of the night, try to provide more activity during the day and immediately before bedtime to help him sleep through the night. Housetraining accidents may mean your dog needs extra outdoor potty trips or an indoor canine litter box. Cats may need additional litter boxes throughout the house in easily accessible areas. Choose litter boxes with low sides that are easy for the animal to get in and out of. Any time you see changes in your pets behavior, bring it to your veterinarians attention. Yearly questionnaires are helpful for monitoring and assessing changes in a senior pets behavior, Dr. Perry says. Because CD is a progressive disease, it is best to instigate treatment early.

Naples Airport Pulling Road, N. Naples, FL b bt nbbnfnrALFt bn Suicide. Its happening too muchWhen I was in my 20s, I had a close friend who I met through work, and we hit it off right away. Katie was a smart, fun, hippie chick. She and her husband threw great parties. My boyfriend and I hung out with them often. Then, when we were all in our 30s, Katie and her husband divorced around the same time my boyfriend and I split up. We were there for each other as we embarked on our new lives as single girls. We usually gabbed on the phone every day or two and got together at least once a week for a glass of wine or a day at the beach. But at some point in our early 40s, we began to drift apart. Katie started dating a guy who was too possessive. She became rather reclusive. She had some bumps in the road with various jobs, and although I would call her, she often didnt bother to answer. Eventually, she moved out of town. These days, shes OK, or at least seems to be. Were Facebook friends, so I know shes still alive and online. But shes one of those friends who just slipped away. We all have them and likely, we all have more than one. With Katie, as our friendship was fading, I felt like I reached out regularly. Worried that she might be in trouble, I even went to her house a couple of times unannounced and knocked on the door. She answered, but I didnt get the impression she really wanted to see me. My mother had a saying: The phone works both ways. And she had a point. Was it really me who had to do all the work or was I just not getting Katies message that our friendship had gone stale? When fashion designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain committed suicide days apart last week, it made me think of those friends that Ive lost, not just through death, but because of the ebbs and flows of life. Sometimes I think we grow complacent because of social media. Even if we havent spoken or seen someone face-to-face in a while, we can see their activity online and we know theyre OK, theyre alive. But, are they OK? The night before Kate Spade died by suicide, an old friend of mine did the same. Twenty years ago, we saw quite a bit of each other, but as time went by our lives went in different directions. I still saw him once a year at a holiday party hosted by a mutual friend, and he always seemed fine. He seemed fine in our Facebook interactions. Obviously, he wasnt fine. And there are other friends the ones who arent on social media (yes, theyre like unicorns, but theyre out there) and theyre the ones I feel the guiltiest about not checking in with now and then, even if were not as close as we once were. Yes, the phone DOES work both ways, but rather than wondering why someone isnt calling me, shouldnt I call them and find out? Theres another saying my mom was fond of: The squeaky wheel gets the oil. I need to make more of an effort and not sit back and telepathically will old friends to reach out to me. As I was writing this, a good friend who loves all things royal as much as I do texted to tell me that the 33-yearold sister of the Queen of the Netherlands had committed suicide. In such a short time a beloved designer, an old friend, a famous TV chef and a member of royalty its happening too much. Maybe you have a friend who slipped away. Wouldnt it be wonderful to call and hear that shes happy and healthy and that shes been thinking about you, too? Or maybe youll call and learn that shes been depressed and needs to talk. In this world of texting, social media and emails, lets see if my mom was right. Lets see if the phone works your way. Use your voice. It could rekindle an old friendship and it might even save a life. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

Rick Scott sought to shore up a gun-control security problem last month by asking for $1 million in federal aid to help clerks of court report individuals unqualified to buy firearms more promptly to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comIn an apparent effort to put his thumb in the proverbial dike, Gov. Rick Scott sought to shore up a gun-control security problem last month by asking for $1 million in federal aid to help clerks of court report individuals unqualified to buy firearms more promptly to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. An official representing Floridas 67 elected clerks of court, one per county, says budget cutbacks of $60 million in the last five years have added to the problem. The FDLE maintains a MECOM database MECOM is an acronym for Mentally Competent listing the names of individuals tagged by county clerks of court for documented mental problems: People declared a danger by a physician; people in a mental institution; or people Baker Acted by court order to a mental institution, for example. Florida law now requires clerks to move that information to the FDLE SEE GUN CONTROL, A26 Scott asks Feds for gun-control helpThe Florida Legislature has dramatically cut the budgets of the states 67 clerks of court over the last decade. In Palm Beach County, the Clerk of Court Division has seen a $12.1 million reduction, resulting in a 30 percent budget cut and the elimination of 110 staff positions ... Although we prioritize mental health records, additional money would give clerks needed resources to ensure improved performance in this specific duty.

Brand names under my roof include Chateau dYquem, Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot, Christian Dior, Fendi, Givenchy, Bulgari, Kenzo, Celine, Hublot, TAG Heuer and Sephora, among many, many others. My market value recently topped $175 billion. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The Cost of CommissionsYou probably pay your brokerage a commission every time you buy or sell stocks, and that fee deserves some consideration. How much you pay per trade isnt a critical issue if you trade only a few times a year. But if you buy and sell stocks (or other securities) relatively frequently, the commissions can make a difference in your results. For example, imagine that you invest $200 in shares of Drive-Thru Dentistry Inc. (ticker: DRILZ), and you pay a $15 commission. Divide $15 by $200 and youll get 0.075, or 7.5 percent. That means youve invested $200, but at the same time you forfeited 7.5 percent of that value in commissions. If the shares rose 8 percent in the first year, youd barely break even, instead of realizing a meaningful gain. Frequent traders, such as day traders, can be hurt worse. For instance, if they buy and sell $200 worth of a stock in a day, theyll pay $15 to buy and another $15 to sell. They will need to have gained more than 15 percent just to turn a profit. So what should you do? Well, it can help to use a brokerage that has low commission costs (perhaps $5 to $7 per trade, or less), as many do these days. Also, aim to keep your commission costs at 2 percent or less per trade, if possible. If your brokerage charges $20, then try to invest at least $1,000 each time you buy stock. (Multiply the commission by 50 to see what its 2 percent of.) If your brokerage charges just $7, your minimum would be $350. You can always save up money until you have enough. If its hard for you to come up with hundreds of dollars for each stock purchase, know that you can also invest small sums regularly through direct investing plans (Drips), which let you buy stock directly through companies, bypassing brokerages altogether. Many major companies offer Drips. If you can type this long address into your browser, you can learn much more about Drips: fool.com/retirement/2018/05/21/yourcomplete-guide-to-dripinvesting.aspx. Drained Battery My dumbest investment? I lost 100 percent of the money I put into a battery company. It made the biggest batteries in the world, mainly for ships. How could I go wrong, right? Well, I didnt look at the company closely or look up any news on it. All I listened to was the advice to invest in it. It was a Chinese company that cooked its books and had been in trouble with the SEC. Then, when the Chinese stock market crashed, my money went down the drain, permanently. The company no longer exists. Now Im more careful, to say the least. I follow Fool stock recommendations, but mainly just to get ideas of companies to investigate. I do a lot of my own reading on the companies to learn what they make, what they contribute to the world, whether people really want or need the products, whether they might survive for the long term, etc. Now Ive been making about 50 percent a year. My investment strategy at the moment is to take chances on stocks that I think will grow briskly, but when I do so, I invest the same amount in stalwart blue chip companies, too, or in a mutual fund with bonds. L.W., Saratoga Springs, New YorkThe Fool Responds: Youve improved your investing process immensely, though 50 percent returns are not normally sustainable. Balancing your riskier investments with less risky ones is smart. Digital Real EstateYou may not think of real estate as an exciting technology play, but if you buy into the real estate investment trust (REIT) Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), thats exactly what youre getting. When you post a message or photo to your favorite social media site, that data must be stored somewhere. Digital Realty owns and operates data centers, which are facilities designed to reliably and securely house servers and other network equipment. The company leases out space to tenants that include Facebook, IBM, Verizon and Uber in fact, Digital Realty has more than 2,300 customers renting its more than 32 million square feet of space. Over time, as data has become more sophisticated and voluminous, it requires even more storage space. The growing need for data centers isnt expected to slow down. Indeed, the number of internet-connected devices is expected to grow by 82 percent over the next two years, according to research from Gartner, and the markets for data-heavy tech such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality and artificial intelligence are longtailed growth opportunities that could cause the data center industry to multiply in size several times over. Digital Realty has grown tremendously over the past decade or so, and theres reason to believe that the growth still is in the relatively early stages. Investors can get all that potential along with a dividend that recently yielded 3.8 percent, and that should grow more over time. I came to life as a grocery-trading c ompan y in K orea in 1938. After some years, I entered the textile business, and later got involved in other lines of work, such as shipbuilding, heavy industry and, in 1969, electronics. I found success with televisions, video recorders, appliances and semiconductors, among other things. I developed mobile phones in the early 1990s and a smartphone in 1999. Today Im one of the worlds top brands and largest companies, with more than 300,000 employees and No. 1 market share in TVs, smartphones, memory chips, refrigerators, display drivers and more. Who am I? (Answer: Samsung) Differing OpinionsQWhen Im reading financial periodicals or Motley Fool articles or am watching CNBC, I often see different opinions on various stocks, with some experts saying buy and others saying sell. Whats up with that? L.S., Victoria, TexasAAnyone evaluating a company can come away with a different opinion about its prospects and likely trajectory. Even the best stock analysts and investors are sometimes wrong. Note, too, that each can be different in what theyre looking for some want undervalued stocks, while others may be willing to take more chances, hoping for a bigger payoff. Its good to gather different opinions, consider various arguments, do your own research and ultimately make up your own mind. ***QWith mutual funds, are index funds best for beginners (like me)? D.C., Riverside, California ALow-fee, broad-market index funds, such as those that track the S&P 500, are indeed perfect for most people beginners or not. An S&P 500 fund will have you instantly invested in 500 of Americas biggest companies. (Many of them have sizable overseas operations, too, giving you international diversification.) Broader funds, such as Vanguards Total Stock Market Index, include smaller and medium-sized companies, too, while total world indexes also include foreign companies. Seek index funds with low fees. Many charge less than 0.25 percent annually.Index funds should have you matching the performance of their underlying indexes. If you want to aim even higher, you might study and carefully choose a few individual companies in which to invest but doing well at that can take a lot of time, energy and skill. Its hard to beat the ease and results of simple index funds. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A26 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY within 30 days or less from the time such individuals come into the system. The data is also shared with a national database. Such individuals will then fail background checks if they apply to buy firearms. But a 2016 state audit of clerks found 17 percent were filing late, according to the FDLE. After the FDLE sought $95,000 in federal grant money to add an employee to file MECOM data on time in a MiamiDade County pilot program, the governor intercepted the application and added to it. He increased the federal grant request to $1 million to help 10 to 12 additional counties, both urban and rural, with high crime rates.Data critical to the integrity of Floridas firearm background screenings was not consistently being entered by Floridas independently elected clerks of court into our state and federal databases in a timely manner, he said in a letter to the FDLE.This is unacceptable. But clerks said the problem stems from budget cutbacks that affect all their operations, not just data entry to MECOM. We appreciate Gov. Scotts acknowledgment and support, said Marcia Johnson, Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers president, and clerk and comptroller for Franklin County, in a press release. Like him, (for us) the safety of our states citizens and visitors is of paramount importance. Unfortunately, funding shortages at the state level have led to this request, and we are counting on federal dollars to shore up our resources before a tragedy occurs. That shouldnt be happening, suggested Linda Doggett, clerk of courts for Lee County on the southwest coast. In Lee, reporting to the MECOM database in a timely manner is not a problem. We dont get that many cases that we have to go into the MECOM database not more than about 10 a month. Its a 10to 15-minute job, and theyre high priority, she said. The real problem is the distribution philosophy in the state legislature, she added. Clerks collect twice as much money as we actually spend on our budgets all the fees, fines and any monies coming into the court system goes up to state. By statute, all those dollars are distributed; half go into a general revenue fund of the state. So its not a lack of funds, its a distribution problem. My position has always been: Theres enough money coming into the court system provided by its users to fund the clerks. Weve gone to the legislature for many years and said we need to distribute monies more effectively so we can do our jobs. But they choose not to do that. I find it very disappointing that the governor chooses to ask the federal government for money to protect and provide justice to the users of the system who have already paid for it. The ineffective distribution of the monies creates problems not just in MECOM reporting but across the board, said Sharon Bock, clerk and comptroller in Palm Beach County. The Florida Legislature has dramatically cut the budgets of the states 67 clerks of court over the last decade. In Palm Beach County, the clerk of court division has seen a $12.1 million reduction, resulting in a 30 percent budget cut and the elimination of 110 staff positions, she explained. Although we prioritize mental health records, additional money would give clerks needed resources to ensure improved performance in this specific duty. A check with the FDLE shows that as of 2017, 306 names from Charlotte County were listed in the MECOM database; 465 from Collier; 303 from Lee; and 4,984 from Palm Beach County. The risk of late reporting of mental health records is that an individual who is prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm may be approved at the time of the background check if the disqualifying mental health record is not available, said the FDLE in its federal grant application.

Dubbed The New Future, A View from the Top, the guest speaker panel event provided a mix of indepth analysis surrounding critical factors affecting growth and home sales activity in the near future The summits moderator was Rick Fioretti, 2017 Realtor of the Year and current Florida Realtors District 5 vice president, as well as a candidate for 2019 Florida Realtors secretary. Speakers included Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc., analytics specialist Kevin Foreman of Inrix Inc. and Dr. Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors. Ms. Carroll provided a view of the local real estate markets current behavior. She informed the audience that list prices in the once oversaturated speculative single-family home market in popular neighborhoods west of U.S. 41 decreased dramatically over the last year and are helping to stabilize the market. There have been enough price reductions over the last year that this sector is finally moving along, said Ms. Carroll. For example, the Moorings/Park Shore area had 2.84 years of supply in the spec home market last year, but today its down to 9.5 months. Golden Gate Estates only has about five months of inventory in the single-family home market, according to Ms. Carroll, and about 45 percent of the active listings in the Estates are new spec homes. Ms. Carroll admitted that the data shows affordable home options in the area are dwindling. There are only 14 single-family homes for sale in Collier County that House Hunting5200 Brixton Court, Naples SEE NABOR, B3 This well-cared-for and immaculately kept home is on a fantastic corner lot in Briarwood, just three houses away from two community pools; tennis, basketball and volleyball courts; and a childrens play area.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 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.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 REAL ESTATE B23 Thinking about remodeling? Youre not alone!In Southwest Florida, gorgeous home sites abound. Yet, many of those same sites include an existing structure that is far less than gorgeous. Interior wall placement feels claustrophobic compared to todays open floor plans, ceilings are low and create a dark, cave-like feeling, fixtures and floor coverings look dingy and dated, the exterior elevation is bland and behindthe-times and the list goes on. Perhaps you look at your property and envision a completely different home than what you see. You have a healthy budget to work with; youd love to include the beautiful appointments found in brand-new luxury model homes, design centers and home planning websites. Thankfully, you have already selected a location that suits your lifestyle but your existing home does not. This is a far more common situation in Southwest Florida than you might realize, as some of the most desirable land in our area was developed over three decades ago! In the same way tasteful people dont want to be seen in outdated clothing, discriminating homeowners dont want to live in tired architectural and design weary homes. Thats why remodeling and rebuilding is an at alltime high on the west coast of Florida. It is certainly possible to knock down interior walls, add rooms, update existing kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms with contemporary lighting, plumbing, appliances and mechanical systems, plus reconstruct outdoor living areas, reface exteriors, and incorporate code-friendly structural changes to any existing home. But realistically, once you count the cost of such extreme renovations, you may ultimately opt to demolish the existing structure and start over. Before you set your course in any direction, whether you ultimately choose to remodel or rebuild, you owe it to yourself to learn as much as possible to make an informed decision. Alan Foster, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of DIVCO Custom Homes, welcomes your questions about remodeling vs. custom building. Call Alan personally at 239-825-9515 to schedule a free walk of your property to discuss the possibilities. Since 1984 DIVCO has been designated as a preferred builder by numerous luxury home communities with an impressive portfolio consisting of over 1,350 distinctive luxury homes in nearly 60 different Southwest Florida communities.

are below $200,000, and eight of them are in Immokalee, she said. And while many properties (single family and condominiums) available in Collier County are priced under $300,000, they are located in neighborhoods with mandatory club and/or association fees. This includes 184 condominiums that are priced below $150,000. Mr. Foreman explained how innovations in transportation, like self-driving cars, will change the real estate industry, and could possibly help alleviate some affordable housing stress. Traffic can tell us a lot about the economy, said Mr. Foreman. When traffic is bad, the economy is typically good. While he admits that the change will be difficult, Mr. Foreman believes that a world with autonomous vehicles will provide a much safer travel experience and increased worker productivity. We used to calculate distance in miles; now we use minutes, said Mr. Foreman, who commutes to work in a fully autonomous Tesla, which allows him to start working an hour before he arrives at the office. With autonomous vehicles there will be no more speeding tickets and no more drunk drivers. Mr. Foreman claimed that use of fully autonomous vehicles will eliminate speed limits because cars will travel at a speed that is regulated by a natural traffic flow. It will also mean those with disabilities, the elderly and children can travel alone as there will be no need for drivers licenses or driving skills. Dr. Yun highlighted the disparity between home prices, which have risen 47 percent over the last six years, versus income, which has only risen 15 percent, according to NAR. He said builders are facing serious obstacles like a lack of skilled workers and rising materials costs that prohibit this from happening now. Despite consumer confidence being high, home buying confidence is down, and Dr. Yun believes this is due to a lack of inventory choices. On average, people moved every seven years, but now thats been stretched to ten, so there is less movement and fewer existing homes for sale. Dr. Yun said he does not forecast another recession and anticipates home prices will continue to increase as long as there is a lack of inventory.

Forget Facebook. And forget Twitter. Our ancestors had only one way of communicating letters written in longhand with pen and paper. Its a lost art one that the Delray Beach Historical Society aims to correct with a letter-writing camp it will offer in July. Of course, I spotted the notice for the camp in a Facebook posting. Most kids today really cannot read or write in cursive. But theres nothing more beautiful than finding a note in Grandpa Bolenders Spencerian script, which seems to flow lyrically and effortlessly off the brittle pages of a century ago and more. Think about it: We would have no insights into the day to day of the past had our ancestors not written cards and letters to one another. The cards and postcards served as the email of the day, with space for a quick note, and nothing more. But the depth and the longing of the letters reveals how uncl utter ed life was in a world without radio, television and computers. I smile at the memory of my grandmother Dorothy, who always poured forth with angst over dealing with her mother, problems at work and life on the farm in rural South Georgia, all scribbled for eternity on lined legal paper. No matter how much angst there was, you knew she took great joy in the telling of her troubles. Theres something satisfying in holding a message in our hands, not unlike picking up a newspaper or a good book. That holds true, even if its typewritten. If I received a letter or card with the envelope addressed in cursive type, I knew it had come from my Grandpa Simmons, who had a Brother manual typewriter it was blue, if I recall. Everyone always looked forward to letters from my great-grandmother, whom we called Grandma Gladys. She was a retired secretary who banged out letters to my grandmother and her sister Lizzie on a portable Smith-Corona typewriter. So many of her missives dealt with trials and tribulations of her Indianapolis neighbors. But many of her letters also found her cursing the ribbon of this damned typewriter! Hey, it beat reading Grandmas handwriting all that training in fine penmanship had been lost on her. Which brings me back to the art of writing, on paper no less. We need the human touch its one more level of connectivity, and to me, its something that stands the test of time. Bought: W est Palm B each Antiques Festival, South Florida Fairgrounds, West Palm Beach. Next show is July 6-8. Info: 941-697-7475 or www.wpbaf.com. Paid: $5 apiece. The Skinny: These colorful postcards are as beautiful now as they were more than a century ago. The elaborately embossed William Howard Taft card dates from the 1908 presidential campaign, and depicts Taft and his running mate, James S. Sherman. The card depicts the men as The Nations Choice. Its funny, but I found an identical card, with images of the mens Democratic opponents, William Jennings Bryan and his running mate, John W. Kern. Clearly Taft and Sherman were the nations choice in that race. Taft served one term and later was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Wilson card, which also is embossed, dates from 1917, as World War I consumed much of Europe, and it offers a patriotic message, exhorting the reader to remember, The flag he loves is the flag you love. Readers needed that love, too. After war was over, 116,516 American doughboys had died of war wounds and disease in Europe. THE FIND:A 1908 William Howard Taft campaign postcard and a 1917 Woodrow Wilson postcard.A hand-written note makes a message all the more meaningful Elaborately tinted and embossed poscards offer a peek into the politics of a century ago. Above: A William Howard Taft/James S. Sherman campaign postcard dates from 1908. Left: This Woodrow Wilson postcard dates from 1917 and looks ahead to World War I.

SOUTH NAPLES FL bt philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSPortraits of shakers and makers whose efforts shaped the Sunshine State Florida Made by George S. Lemieux and Laura E. Mize. The History Press. 284 pages. Trade paperback, $21.99.This book is a must-have for Floridians who love their state and want to brag about it. It also will bring pleasure to readers who love history and enjoy seeing how the present attributes of an area grew out of the creative genius and hard work of far-sighted individuals. Written in an attractive, engaging prose style, it will make a fine addition to any Florida library. Its elegant and its printed on glossy paper, which makes the illustrations stand out. Its also a good choice for gift giving. The essays touch some common themes, but they are es sentially independent. Readers can choose a chapter at a time or move along through four or five before taking a break. Many of the names will be familiar and thus expected. Yet even in the profiles of Walt Disney and Marjory Stoneman Douglas, most readers will encounter information they didnt have before. Florida Made is a user-friendly way of absorbing local history and learning how especially talented and dedicated individuals have made game-changing contributions to the Sunshine State as we know it. Some of the individuals are important because they launched something that gave the state an important new dimension. Ted Arisons contributions to building the cruise ship industry allowed Floridas ports to blossom and to make the state not only a destination but also a gateway to countless other destinations. Its hard to think about Florida today without thinking about the opportunities for pleasurable travel abroad. Wayne Huizenga succeeded in many businesses (Waste Management, for example), before becoming involved with sports franchises, boosting Floridas number of professional sporting teams and sporting events and helping brand Florida as a major sports capital. Someone had to make Florida a center for space exploration, and the authors make it clear that this person is Curt Heinrich Debus, the German rocket scientist who made Florida Americas launching point to the moon. The space program, of course required a headquarters, and the development of the Kennedy Space Center provided not only a hub for research but one of employment for a swath of Florida that became known as the Space Coast. Another unique individual who helped change Florida and the nation is Mary McLeod Bethune. Lauded as the First Lady of the Struggle, the authors write, she was a determined visionary who set for the world an example of peaceful integration and bettered the plight of black Floridians through the school, the hospital and other institutions she founded. Ms. Bethune, they add, inspired everyday Americans to strive for an equitable society. The authors enthusiasm for their subject and the wisdom of their choices is remarkable. The chapter notes and bibliography invite further study.About the authorsA native Floridian who has a varied career in both the public and private sectors, George S. LeMieux served as Floridas 34th U.S. senator in the 111th Congress. He served on the Senates Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee; the Armed Services Committee; and the Special Committee on Aging. Mr. LeMieux also worked as Floridas deputy attorney general, managing more than 400 attorneys and appearing before appellate courts on behalf of the State of Florida, including the U.S. Supreme Court. As the governors chief of staff, he oversaw, on behalf of the governor, all state agencies and operations. In that role, he negotiated a gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Currently serving as the chairman of the board of Gunster law firm, he is the founder of the LeMieux Center for Public Policy at Palm Beach Atlantic University. He lives in Fort Lauderdale. A freelance journalist and former reporter for The Palm Beach Post, Laura E. Mize has written extensively about Florida business, culture, food and dining and agriculture. She also has worked as a health and medical sciences writer for organizations such as the University of Florida and Mayo Clinic and the nationally syndicated radio show Health in a Heartbeat. Her work has appeared in newspapers across the country and in the Local Palate magazine. She lives in Naples with her husband and daughter. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTOJim Sanders and Stefanie Sanders wearing fezes, just like Lil Ed, at the Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials concert in Bonita.COURTESY PHOTOThe Tedeschi Trucks Band has been awarded a 2018 Nancy award.Gratitude AwardThe Tedeschi Trucks BandPlaying the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in April, the Tedeschi Trucks Band had us spellbound once again, with its incredible musicianship and mix of rock, blues, jazz and R&B. The band has a definite Joe Cocker/Leon Russell Mad Dogs & Englishmen vibe. The show made us feel something we hadnt felt in a long while: uplifted and hopeful. Full Circle AwardGulfshore PlayhouseHurricane Irma affected us all, to varying degrees. Gulfshore Playhouse not only had to cancel its annual New Works Festival, but also its first play of the season, due to water damage at The Norris Center, where the Naples-based professional company performs. Determined to make up for lost time, they opened what would have been the seasons second play, Leading Ladies, a week early. As its founder and producing artistic director, Kristen Coury, says, they opened the season with one Irma and closed it with another: The Mystery of Irma Vep. Dont Do It Without Your Fez On AwardJim Sanders and Stefanie Sanders Jim Sanders and Stefanie Sanders came prepared when they attended the Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials concert in December at the Center for the Performing Arts in Bonita Springs. The two, who describe themselves as friends, exes, friendly exes, sat in the front row, both proudly wearing red fezes, just like Chicago bluesman Lil Ed himself. They also describe themselves as definite Ed Heads. (Jimmy Buffet fans are called Parrot Heads and Grateful Dead fans are Dead Heads, but Lil Ed fans are Ed Heads.) Best Bungled Line AwardViki BoyleIn a reading of George Washingtons Teeth at Florida Repertory Theatre, actor Viki Boyles character had to say shed read something in The New Bunion Bugler. But she kept stumbling over the name, which proved to be a tongue twister for the actress. The audience thought it hilarious and grew giddier with each failed attempt. The theater was in an uproar. We wish it had been written into the script as a character flaw, as it made us laugh so much. But thats OK Ms. Boyle knows how to make us laugh without mangling a line. Irony AwardPrint magazineThis 75-year-old National Magazine Award-winning publication about graphic design and culture printed its last issue in December 2017 and now continues online only. We loved this informative and creative magazine and mourn its passing. We also cant help but note the irony of a magazine named Print being only available online and wonder if it will now change its name to Digital. Best Opener Awardopening paragraph of Golden Hill: A Novel of Old New YorkThe opening of Francis Spuffords Golden Hill: A Novel of Old New York is told not only in the voice of the era in which its set (mid-1700s) but also gives a feel for the protagonists anxiety: The brig Henrietta having made Sandy Hook a little before the dinner hour and having passed the Narrows about three oclock and then crawling to and fro, in a series of tacks infinitesimal enough to rival the calculus, across the grey sheet of the harbour of NewYork until it seemed to Mr. Smith, dancing from foot to foot upon deck, that the small mound of the city waiting there would hover ahead in the November gloom in perpetuity, never growing closer, to the smirk of Greek Zeno and the day being advanced to dusk by the time Henrietta at last lay anchored off Tietjes slip, with the veritable gables of the citys veritable houses divided from him only by one hundred foot of water and the dusk moreover being as cold and damp and dim as November can afford, as if all the world were a quarto of grey paper dampened by drizzle until in danger of crumbling imminently to pap all this being true, the master of the brig pressed upon him the virtue of sleeping this one further night aboard, and pursuing his shore business in the morning. (He meaning by the offer to signal his esteem, having found Smith a pleasant companion during the slow weeks of the crossing.) But Smith would not have it. Smith, bowing and smiling, desired nothing but to be rowed to the dock. Smith, indeed, when once he had his shoes flat on the cobbles, took off at such speed despite the gamboling of his land-legs that he far out-paced the sailor dispatched to carry his trunk and must double back for it, and seizing it hoist it instanter on his own shoulder and gallop on, skidding over fish-guts and turnip leaves and cats entrails, and the other effluvium of the port asking for direction here, asking again there so that he appeared most nearly as a type of smiling whirlwind when he shouldered open the door just as it was about to be bolted for the evening of the counting-house of the firm of Lovell & Company, on Golden Hill Street, and laid down his burden while the prentices were lighting the lamps, and the clock on the wall showed one minute to five, and demanded, very civilly, speech that moment with Mr. Lovell himself. Whew. In this age of Twitter and texting and mass Attention Deficit Disorder, people dont write like that anymore. But were so glad Francis Spufford does. The Redundant Redundancy AwardPaul GaryPaul Gary played GARY, the Person of Technology (they do not want to be called robots) in the play reading of Gary at Florida Reps PlayLab in May. (And of all the robots weve seen in science fiction TV shows and movies, we believe this is the first one weve ever seen with a full, bushy beard.) Best Natural Sleep Aid Awardwww.TinyKittens.com We have two furry guys of our own, but fell in love with this on YouTube: Live: Feral Caternity Ward and Kitten Nursery. Its a 24-hour live stream of two cat moms (a black one and an orange one) and well, were not really sure how many kittens, nine or 10 tumbling over each other, playing, exploring and sleeping on top of each other. Then, every so often, giant human feet appear in the scene, like in the opening credits of Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Totally adorable and very, very calming. We got hooked in mid-May when the kittens were only 3 weeks old. Some, we gather, are named after cheeses (the two orange brothers are Cheddar and Colby). And some appear to be named after Beverly Cleary characters: Ribsy, Huggins and Beezus (their mom is named Ramona). Renewed Faith in the Human Race AwardElaine Newtons Critics Choice In February, Elaine Newton sold out the 1,477-seat Hayes Hall at Artis Naples for her book lecture/interview with Amor Towles, author of the bestselling A Gentleman In Moscow. Tickets (at $45 a pop) sold out weeks before the event. But still the box office received constant requests for tickets, and Ms. Newton herself told us she received three to four requests daily. It did our heart good to look around the venue at 10 a.m. on a Saturday and realize that everyone was there because they love books and love to read. Best Actors Bio AwardMorgan GravesMorgan Graves played Donna, a high school cheerleader, in Venice Theatres recent production of Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical. In keeping with the loopy humor of the musical, her actors bio in the venues Stagenotes playbill was equally off-the-wall and made us laugh out loud. We reproduce it here in its entirety: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Combine ingredients, add chocolate chips, and mix. Place balls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Tastiest actors bio weve ever read. Shake a Tail Feather AwardHarry Connick Jr. and Lucien BarbarinForget about twerking. Theres nothing like seeing New Orleans pianist Harry Connick Jr. and trombonist Lucien Barbarin turn their backs on the audience and shake their posteriors as they did at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at the start of their New Orleans Tricentennial tour June 1. Amusing, entertaining and better than any music video weve ever seen. (Were pretty sure Sir Mix-aLot didnt write Baby Got Back about these two. But he could have.) Best Sci-fi AwardThe Expanse on SyfyWhen I was a child, I watched Star Wars. Now that Im grown up, I watch The Expanse, the Syfy cable series set in a future where tensions are high between Earth, Mars and a group of people called The Belters, who mine our solar systems asteroid belts. The story is complex, interesting and strong on the details. (Love the wall built around New York City to protect it from the surrounding high water level.) The special effects, such as the incidents of weightlessness, are realistic. And everything is blissfully free of silly moments. (After three seasons, Syfy recently inexplicably cancelled the show, but it looks as if Amazon will pick it up for a fourth season.) The series is based on the bestselling novels of James S.A. Covey (the pen name of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). The Wheres Waldo Awardfunkmaster George ClintonGeorge Clinton performed with his band Parliament Funkadelic at the Southwest Florida Event Center in Bonita Springs in May. We were thrilled to see the grandfather of funk in person, but due to his doctors directive that the living musical legend should chill, as we were told, NANCIESFrom page 1

Maybe. And most of the times he was onstage, he was sitting in a chair, directing the music. Dont get us wrong. The massive band is more than competent and was just as entertaining and theatrical as always. We just missed George when he wasnt onstage or singing. And when we did see him, we were surprised: Way more conventional than usual, he looked like a Florida snowbird on his way to the tiki bar. Regardless, we were glad to see him while hes still performing; the musician recently told Billboard magazine his last touring show will be in May 2019. Fan Who Traveled the Furthest Awardto the alien at the above concertDefinitely not from our solar system, an alien, complete with oversized almondshaped eyes and two antennae, grooved along with the dancing crowd at the George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic concert. We assume his space vehicle was parked out back, perhaps near the Mothership. Most Happy Fellow Awardto Lil Ed When Lil Ed and the Blue Imperials played at the Center for the Performing Arts in Bonita Springs, the Chicago slide blues guitarist seemed to grow happier with each sad song he performed. Full of energy, he beamed at the audience from the stage. Performing the blues just seems to make him deliriously happy. We met his wife at the merchandise table after the show. Is he always this happy? we asked. Does he wake up like this in the morning? Yep, she said. Thats him. So much for the stereotype of the brooding bluesman. Most Woke Directors Notes AwardLiz KimballLiz Kimball directed and choreographed Oklahoma! at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Art Hall, a collaboration between the Gulf Coast Symphony and the Broadway Palm Theatre. The title song is a celebration of a U.S. territory thats about to become a state. But, as Ms. Kimball pointed out in her directors notes in the playbill: There is also a hard conversation that this play omits. The original inhabitants of the Oklahoma territory included members of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creeks and Seminole tribes, displaced so that settlers could claim land. While naming these significant peoples here is in no way a proper enough acknowledgement of their untold stories, this piece is made in honor of those original tribes as well as the Calusa tribe, native to the land we are currently sitting upon here in Southwest Florida. The Rainmaker Awardto Hurricane RuthHurricane Ruth has a Category 5 voice, but Mother Nature might have taken her name a little too literally. Scheduled to perform just before Saturday nights headliner at this years Bonita Blues Fest, the powerhouse belter known as Hurricane Ruth found herself singing in the rain, as the heavens opened up. Diehard fans who stayed were treated to a high-energy performance; the blues fest folks promise to invite her back. Best ColorHollis JeffcoatAbstract expressionist painter Hollis Jeffcoat left us too soon, dying on April 28, just a couple weeks shy of her 66th birthday. Deeply cultural and perpetually playful, she created art that moved and astounded us. Her colors were instinctual, audacious, exquisite. My friend, my former partner, may the light be always good and colors incredible where you are now.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 14-20, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYViolent femmes camp it up at Lab TheaterTo put it in a nutshell, Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte is freakin weird. Yet oddly entertaining. And also undeniably campy to the nth degree. If you saw Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: A Parody of the Horror, which The Laboratory Theater of Florida produced last season at this time, youll know exactly what to expect. Its similar in tone, is also based on a 1964 Robert Aldrich film that again starred Bette Davis and, like the Baby Jane parody, has men playing the two female leads rather robust men, whose lack of daintiness just adds to the humor. Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte is the horror film/psychological thriller in which Charlotte Hollis (Ms. Davis) is about to lose her southern plantation home but refuses to give it up. A poor cousin, Miriam (Olivia de Havilland), comes to help but winds up gaslighting Charlotte. Years ago, when Charlottes lover was killed and decapitated, everyone thought Charlotte guilty of the crime, though she was never convicted. After Miriam arrives, Charlotte begins seeing things and hearing music her lover would play. She appears to be slowly losing her mind, sinking into madness. Theatergoers dont have to have any familiarity with the movie in order to appreciate the parody, though Im sure it would help. Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte, starts a little slow. Charlotte (Brian Linthicum) is trying to protect her home from the highway commission that wants to bulldoze it and build a highway straight through the property. She simpers and wails, but doesnt mind grabbing a shotgun to protect her home. With a white blonde beehive hair-do, shes partial to ruffles and frills and wears one pink dress that has an oversized bow on the back, as if shes a little girls birthday present. For the most part, shes a damsel in distress, the proverbial heroine tied to the railroad tracks. Her housekeeper, the disheveled Velma (a marvelous Sue Schaffel) keeps an eye on her and skulks about. Shes also highly protective of the woman she calls Miss Shar-lot. Ms. Schaffel is great fun to watch as she shuffles around, long arms dangling. The action picks up when Miriam (Randall Kenneth Jones) shows up. Charging in from the back of the theater, this larger-than-life character makes a grand entrance, breaking the fourth wall and chatting with audience members like a drag queen taking the stage. Mr. Jones proceeds to attack his role with an overabundance of sass and a take-noprisoners passion. His Miriam can cut you with a look or a clever retort. And even though shes a redhead, she dares to wear orange and red outfits. She is, in a word, formidable. Miriam and the town physician, Dr. Drew (Albert Gayoso), have a thing going on, and it soon becomes apparent theyre plotting something diabolical as well. A sweet-talking ladies man, Dr. Drew has forgotten his oath to first, do no harm. These are the main characters. Others that stand out are Char Loomis as Jewel Meyhew, the widow of the man Charlotte was in love with. And Harry Willis gives a terrific performance as Steven Coe, a British newspaper reporter who speaks in the clipped cadence of men from 1940s movies. Heather Shaw plays Sheriff Luke Standish with a gravity-defying fake belly, but her 5-oclock shadow seems more Halloween-ish than realistic. There are a multitude of scenes in various locales: the sheriffs office, a street in town, Jewel Meyhews porch, outside and inside Char lotte s mansion. Somehow they manage to cram it all into the Lab Theaters small stage (using your imagination helps a bit). The two leads scheme and battle and match wits. And though Ms. Davis played the Charlotte role, its Mr. Jones as Miriam who does a great impersonation of the iconic actress, biting off his words as if they were chicken heads. (He also does a Barbra Streisand impersonation at one point, though it went over the heads of most in the audience.) Theres also a very funny scene with Miriam and Charlotte in a car, on their way to dump a body. Director Annette Trossbach does a great job of getting the tone right with this parody. Not everything works, but there are enough laughs in this crazy play to make it entertaining. I enjoyed it more than Lab Theaters parody of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Theres enough cross-dressing in this play to rival Shakespeare and enough bons mots to please a drag queen and a receptive audience. The night I attended, the theater was experiencing some air-conditioning problems. A repairman soon fixed them, and the show began. But the actors were sweating so much their make-up (and oddly, their false bosoms) began sliding south. Is Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte lowbrow? Yep. But its also surprisingly amusing. See it and revel in the tackiness. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte>> Who: The Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When: Through July 1 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $28 ($10 for students with ID) >> Info: 218-0481 or www.laboratorytheater orida.com COURTESY PHOTOBrian Linthicum as Charlotte and Randall Kenneth Jones as Miriam.

Nexus9 will also be putting on a second SWFL SteamCon event in October with a focus on another sci-fi subset: steampunk, addressing a popular sci-fi question of what if at the same time Victorians developed steam-powered machinery, they also had advanced technology? Q&A with George LoweGeorge Lowe is the voice behind Space Ghost Coast to Coast, the 1990s reincarnation of a 1960s character, wherein a cartoon host interviewed actual celebrities on a fictional late-night talk show. The show aired on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. Mr. Lowe went on to voice characters on Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken. Q: The humor on Space Ghost was weird enough to appeal to kids, but really there were a lot of jokes aimed at a much older audience. I bet that made it fun to do. A: The humor, it carries. When I was little, it was Rocky and Bullwinkle, the same thing. You know you were watching Natasha and Boris as a kid and not really think about it, and theyd slip in all these things for the grownups and it was like, thank you, Rocky and Bullwinkle. It was great. Q: Space Ghost was packed with that kind of off-the-wall humor and non-sequiters. How did you guys make it work? A: We were like that period in art called Dada. We would just decide, no we didnt want to do that. Then if we got bored we would do something formula. And we would use the guests, too. We would start rolling tape as soon as they sat down. And we had just brilliant writers. We were just eight or nine crazy people put together and everybody had a different sensibility, and everyones sensibility was welcomed, including one of our editors, Tom Roche, who used to put his name upside down in the credits. Q: Would you ever consider another reboot of the show in some kind of an online format? A: I just wish somebody would say, weve got some money and weve got some small backing and wed like to do six of them with you sitting in the chair and just have on great guests. And Im convinced it would be so anti-television that people would see it. It would be a blast.

Free Admission Shopping Deals All Day Bounce House Giant Slide Face Painting Balloon Twisting Fun & Games! CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous handBY STEVE BECKERThe name of Shri D.V. Gore may not strike a responsive chord, but Gore has earned a niche in the Bridge Hall of Fame as the result of an unusual play he made in a tournament staged many years ago in Calcutta. The hand was published in the Indian Bridge World Magazine. Gore was East, defending against four hearts. West led the ace of clubs, a very fortunate choice for his side, and then shifted to a trump. Declarer won the trick in dummy and returned a spade, losing the nine to Wests ten. West led another trump, and it was on this trick that Gore made his extraordinary play: He discarded the ace of spades! As a result, South had to go down one, as there was no way for him to avoid losing two more spade tricks. When he next led another spade from dummy, West won with the jack, removed dummys last trump and eventually scored the setting trick with the king of spades. To appreciate the effect of Gores play, lets suppose he had made the more prosaic discard of a diamond or a club on the second trump lead. In that case, Gore would have been forced to win the next spade lead with the ace. Regardless of what he then returned, South would be able to ruff a spade in dummy and so make the contract. Gore realized that the ace of spades was a liability as long as it remained in his hand, and he therefore got rid of it in a hurry. He knew from declarers first spade play that his partner was practically certain to have either the K-J-10 or K-Q-10, since declarer would surely have played a higher spade than the nine if he had held the K-Q, K-J or Q-J.

A spinoff of the maledominated Oceans 11 movies, this female-led dramedy lacks the wit, clarity and ingenuity to keep us interested. Rated PG-13.Hereditary (Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff) After her mother dies, Annie (Collette) tries to keep her family close as supernatural things start to happen. Its layered, disturbing, and theres not a jump scare in sight. If only more horror movies had the guts to be this unconventional. Rated R.The Seagull (Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss) This adaptation of Anton Chekhovs renowned play follows a group of mismatched lovers at a Russian summer estate in the early 1900s. Some of the humor and drama connects, but too often its too listless to ignite the screen. Youre left with the feeling that youd rather see this extraordinary cast perform the play on stage. Rated PG-13.Solo: A Star Wars Story (Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Joonas Suotamo) Young Han Solo (Ehrenreich) meets Lando (Glover) and Chewbacca (Suotamo) and flies the Millennium Falcon for the first time. Ehrenreich doesnt have Harrison Fords boyish charm in the title role, which is a shame. Worse, though, is the labored story and murky color scheme. Rated PG-13.Deadpool 2 (Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison) After a horrible personal tragedy, Deadpool (Reynolds) tries to protect a young mutant (Dennison) from a futuristic soldier (Brolin) out to kill the kid. 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 here 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.Godard, Mon Amour (Louis Garrel, Stacy Martin, Berenice Bejo) The late-1960s 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.

YesIncredibles 2 has outstanding action sequences, charming humor and a nice message. It also showcases crisp animation in addition to the whimsy, wonder and warmth that pervades all of Pixar Animations productions. It is as enjoyable a crowd pleaser as they come, great for the whole family and an ideal summer schools out escape. Fans of The Incredibles (2004) will recall the film ends with the super-powered Incredibles family on its way to the rescue after The Underminer starts wreaking havoc in the city. Incredibles 2 picks up right there, with Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), teenager Violet (Sarah Vowell), youngster Dash (Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile) as well as friend Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) saving the day. Things go OK. A lot of damage occurs, and given that superheroes are still banned, the destruction doesnt win them any fans. Enter tech guru Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) and his sister Evelyn (Catherine Keener), who equip the family with body cams so people can see all the good they do. Small thing, though: The Deavors want Elastigirl to handle the first mission alone, leaving macho Mr. Incredible to stay home with the kids. Needless to say, it takes more than superhero strength to comfort an emotional teenage girl, help your son with math homework and get your baby to sleep. Two things follow: Riveting action as Elastigirl attempts to stop a runaway train and embarks upon a daring helicopter rescue, while at home, Mr. Incredible struggles as Mr. Mom. Or put another way: While the woman/ mother is out saving the day, the man/ husband cant keep up with the kids at home. The only reason this raises the eyes is that its a story departure from the 2004 original, and in being so feels notably female empowerment 2018. It works narratively and at no point does the story struggle, but its nonetheless interesting to see the leading animation company in the business so consciously modern and aware. This also must be said: Brad Bird is a heckuva director. The first Incredibles and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol were terrific (we forgive him for George Clooneys Tomorrowland), and now he has tremendous success again with Incredibles 2. Mr. Bird also made Ratatouille and The Iron Giant, each a very respectable movie in its own right. There arent many people working today with the boldness and imagination to concoct such fantastical stories, and also the technical skill and craftsmanship to execute these visions in a stellar way. He already has two Oscars (for The Incredibles and Ratatouille), and if he keeps this up, more are in his future. Incredibles 2 is Pixars 20th feature film, and its remarkable that the animation powerhouse has rarely had a misstep since Toy Story captured our hearts in 1995. Incredibles is also the fifth Pixar property to get the prequel/ sequel treatment, and although this film might not be among the studios best, it certainly doesnt disappoint.

Its one of the six noble varietals, so called because its capable of making elegant wines that can age and develop for decades. It reaches its ultimate expression, according to many, as a major component of the Bordeaux blend, and in many of the highest quality wines from California especially from Napa Valley. But hold on a second. Theres another Cabernet called Cabernet Franc and its worth knowing about and enjoying. Its one of the worlds major black grapes, kind of a twin cousin to Sauvignon, and also makes big, dark, bold reds that pair beautifully with many types of foods especially those with a higher salt content (think Asian flank steak and other dishes with soy sauce). The heart of traditional the traditional Cab Franc growing region is just at the middle of the Loire Valley, around the villages of Chinon and Bourgueil, which is, as everyone knows, pronounced burr-GOOEY. Its southwest of Tours, and not remotely near any other major city. But the countryside is gorgeous, studded with spectacular chateaux and the food isnt bad, either. Of course, this varietal is grown extensively in Bordeaux, and popular in other winegrowing regions such as Italy, Hungary, and the USA. Cabernet Franc, as mentioned, is closely related to Cabernet Sauvignon, but its not as dark, and has a softer level of intensity. The perfume is a bit richer, with aromas of raspberries, tobacco, cassis and violets. The tannins are more rounded as well, so it tends to have a smoother mouthfeel. A wine like Justin Justification is a good example, coming from Paso Robles and containing a healthy percentage of Merlot for a softer mouthfeel and rounder tannins. The truth is that this grape is used in blends probably more than its bottled as a single varietal. However, theres a lot of enjoyment to be had. So look for it the next time you go wine shopping. Now, our latest favorites 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, and 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, tobacco the layers of flavor just go on and on. WW 92.Ask the Wine WhispererIve heard a lot about a wine event called The Judgment of Paris held in 1976. What exactly was that all about? Paula L., Palm BeachThis event was the subject of a book of the same name, and then a movie called Bottle Shock with Alan Rickman playing a wine merchant named Steven Spurrier, who had a wine store in Paris and was convinced that American wines could be just as good as the French. This view, of course, was considered heretical. Spurrier traveled to California and brought back a selection of Cabernets and Chardonnays, then put together a panel of French experts to taste and score the American wines and their French counterparts blind that is without knowing which wines came from where. Long story short, an American Chardonnay made by Chateau Montelena topped the finest white Burgundies, and several California reds were scored higher than the most expensive and famous wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy. This put American wines on the map internationally and was one of the most significant events in the modern history of American wine. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

THE DISHThe Dish: Jerk Chicken Omelet The Place: Patrics Breakfast & Lunch, 2091 Pine Ridge Road The Price: $8.75 The Menu: www.patricskitchen.net The Details: Patrics is that smalltown breakfast and lunch spot that every mid-size city restaurant strives to be. People come back again and again for the great food, the friendly servers that have been there for years and that special feeling when you know youve found a diamond in the rough that not everyone around town knows about (but should). Today I ordered the jerk chicken omelet for lunch; the tasty blend of spicy meat, tomato, onion, peppers, jack cheese and sliced avocado is the savory deliciousness you never knew you needed. It comes with a perfectly toasted piece of bread with butter, and I always ask for the sweet potato home fries. Theyre tossed in with some sauted onions that offset the crunchy potatoes with some zest and juiciness. One More Thing: The restaurant offers almost all of its menu options as a gluten-free or paleo-style dish. They make their gluten-free bread in-house. And make sure you find out what the muffin is when you get there; chances are itll be different every time you go.

With over 100 salts and fresh herbs accenting fish from the gulf to the Mediterranean Sea, offerings are crafted with a creative, deft touch. Have lunch on the patio, people watch along Third Street, have drinks at the bar while enjoying live music, or settle into a cozy spot. The organic and sustainable ingredients are artfully combined in beautiful preparations. Lunch calls for avocado stuffed with jumbo lump crabmeat, crispy fritto misto or grilled red snapper. Love seafood? Then share the generous fire and ice platter, salmon poke or butternut squash panzanella salad. Whole crispy snapper, Wagyu short ribs, or the shrimp and scallop spiedini are top main choices. Desserts change daily. You cant go wrong with a Norman Love chocolate or gelato creation.1 SAILS RESTAURANT 301 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, 360-2000, www.sailsrestaurants.comSails, anchoring Naples Fifth Avenue Souths west end, has a worldly assortment of fresh seafood. The day I dined, there was Frances Dover sole, Greek bronzini, alfonsino and trevally from New Zealand, Spanish turbot, Rhode Islands black sea bass and Cape Cods Wellfleet oysters-all super fresh on ice. The elegant decor (with Italian leather chairs, Czech crystal and French oak flooring), attentive service and culinary offerings mirror and sometimes surpass the dining experience at at The Ritz-Carlton no wonder, quite a few staff hail from The Ritz. What to order? First, call dibs on your fish, then select salmon tartare, hamachi crudo, hearts of palm with grapefruit, and a signature cocktail. Then consider peppered tuna rossini, grass-fed tenderloin, and save desert space for Grand Marnier souffl, mango citrus curd, or nougatine with chocolate ganache.3USS NEMO UNDERSEA CUISINE 3745 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, 261-6366, www.ussnemorestaurant.comUSS Nemo is my Naples go-to spot to take visitors who seek an intimate, truly unique Naples seafood experience. The nautical decor motif with bronze portholes, diving gear and nets sets the stage for Chef Nicolas Merciers awardwinning Mediterranean and Asian-influenced dishes. Start with flash-seared tuna pizza, grilled octopus, clams in white sauce or seasonal grilled hogfish with tropical fruit salsa. You cant go wrong with pepper jelly calamari with feta cheese, wild wahoo with mango or hot and crunchy grouper with pineapple slaw. You must have the signature miso-broiled sea ba ss with citrus ginger butter sauce. Other faves are the commodore cioppino, volcano yellowtail snapper with Asian aioli and the tuna foie gras Wellington with portobello, black risotto and pomegranate demi-glace sauce.

M M M M Ma F Fa t re s CUISINEThe Bevy offers casual, brunch, bevys and moreThe Bevy was created to offer a casual, laid-back space to enjoy a drink, some munchies or perhaps a more substantial meal with family and friends. Even the family dog is welcomed with a bowl of fresh water. (Before it changed hands a few weeks ago, it was even serving a three-course meal for dogs. That, sadly, has been discontinued.) We took our little Chinese crestedYorky mix, Gigi, with us for a recent brunch with friends and noticed that our server fetched Gigis bowl of water before taking orders for our drinks. That was a good thing as far as I was concerned since it was a relatively warm morning. Once our canine was attended to, our server turned her attention to the humans. As befits a place called The Bevy slang for alcoholic beverages as well as a crowd she took drink orders first. While our friends opted for iced tea, my companion and I explored the brunch bevys. One of the specialty drinks is a carrot-ginger mimosa ($12), which my companion ordered. I went with a traditional bloody Mary ($12). Both drinks looked lovely and, on this warmish morning, were cool and refreshing, but were weak on alcohol. My companion switched to Matua sauvignon blanc ($12), which arrived properly chilled and was much more to his liking. The restaurant consists of a bar with chair situated around it and a high-top table in front of that. On either side are covered patios with the side open to the elements. Large fans help keep it somewhat cool, as does a lot of foliage, but it did get warm toward the end of our meal. Brunch options range from salads to a trendy acai mason jar filled with vanilla yogurt and acai, fresh berries and toasted oats served with a bran muffin. Theres cured salmon carpaccio; omelettes; eggs Benedict; avocado toast; classic bacon, eggs and potatoes; duck egg and waffles; chicken and waffles; steak and eggs; a burger and a grilled grouper sandwich; a candied BLT and apricot chicken salad. Nothing too surprising here, but if its prepared well, it doesnt need to break the mold. Although there werent many tables occupied at the early end of brunch, our orders took a while to come out. We nursed our first round of drinks and, while my companion managed to get a glass of wine to replace his mimosa, our server was scarce. It appeared she was working tables on the patios on either side of the bar, so we didnt see a lot of her. Our waters, iced teas and bloody Mary glasses went untended. For the sake of research, we all ordered different dishes. One had the apricot chicken salad ($14), another the candied BLT ($14). My companion tried the cured salmon carpaccio ($18), while I opted for the roasted vegetable omelette ($13). The entrees looked appealing when they did arrive. The BLT came on a sturdy roll, with ripe tomatoes, thick strips of bacon and fresh lettuce. I never did get a bite of that one but my friend apparently enjoyed it as he left nothing behind. I did snag a French fry, however, and it was warm and crisp. The chicken salad was creamy, with big chunks of chicken, apricots on top and a salad in a separate bowl on the side. The chicken salad was good, but it came in a bread bowl that was too hard to eat. Id have preferred it on the plate with some slices of bread or the roll on which the BLT was served. My omelette was fine, but not noteworthy. The eggs were properly cooked, filled with red bell peppers, onions and such. They came with potatoes that were nicely browned but otherwise unremarkable. The berries that accompanied the dish were fresh and sweet. The salmon, described as cured in Ketel One vodka, was served on a bagel with potatoes, poached eggs and berries. My friend asked that the eggs be omitted and they were. The salmon came as a single layer on a bagel atop a layer of cream cheese. The salmon was salty, making it difficult to taste the fish. The potatoes and berries were the same as those that were served with the omelette. For dessert, we could choose from the flourless chocolate cake ($8) or the flourless chocolate cake. One dessert, not made there. It was warm, rich, as you might expect, with a swath of caramel beneath it, blueberries and strawberries and fresh whipped cream. We shared it four ways and it was plenty for each of us to have a couple of forkfuls. The Bevy is a pleasant spot in which to while away some time. Having changed ownership in late April, the website will be getting an upgrade soon. It would be a good thing if the new management saw fit to add a server or two to the mix. The servers on duty the day we were there were very nice but they were spread too thin. Thats not fair to them or to patrons. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Cured salmon carpaccio served on a bagel is a cool choice for a summer brunch. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYA bloody Mary and a carrot-ginger mimosa began Sunday brunch at The Bevy. Flourless chocolate cake with caramel sauce and whipped cream is a rich but satisfying dessert. Apricot chicken salad and a green salad make a light meal. A candied BLT with fries is a tasty option for bacon lovers at The Bevy.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC.ALEX THIESThere was never any doubt that Alex Thies would grow up to be anything other than a designer. As lead designer at Freestyle Interiors, shes done a masterful job at creating spaces that make clients feel stylish and ahead of the curve, and yet fully present. Luxe Livings Michael Korb chatted with the designer to learn how she found her calling and what makes it so special to her. Q: When did you know you wanted to be a designer? A: Being a designer is in my blood. My dad was a builder and my mom is an artist, so I grew up on construction sites and surrounded by various mediums of art. As a kid, I used to get on my dads computer and play on his CAD programs and design houses for fun. I never really even imagined being anything else. It just feels so natural to me. Q: Where did you learn your craft? A: I did my undergraduate degree at Washington University in St. Louis, where I studied psychology and visual communications. I continued to graduate school, earning a masters in architecture from NewSchool of Architecture and Design in San Diego. While my background is mainly architectural, I learned most of what I know about color, fabrics, materials, etc., through experience in various sectors of interior design from commercial to retail to residential, working in several of Freestyle Interiors is a naturalGIOVANNI PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOSDESIGNER Q&A SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 Blue and gray tile reminiscent of the ocean surrounds an outdoor living area fireplace with a TV recess that mimics the ceiling treatment.

4 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYQ&AFrom page 2GIOVANNI PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOSdifferent cities across the country before settling back down in Naples, where I grew up. Q: What do you ask your clients at the start of a project? A: I love to get to know my clients so I can understand their lifestyle and dreams for their home. It really varies by client, but every space starts with an inspiration. Sometimes its a story the client tells me about their travels. Sometimes its a fabric I find that is perfect for the home. Sometimes its a piece of art or a family heirloom that starts us off and we build from there. Q: Do you have a formula for how you create a space? A: My approach is to really focus on making all of the details special in their own right, but in a way that they seamlessly blend together as part of the bigger picture of the home. Q: Is there a trend happening now that youre excited about (or want to see disappear ASAP)? A: I love the use of natural materials in their original form from live-edge tables to organic teak sculptures to the integration of natural stone. Im all about bringing in warmth by combining raw, unaltered textures in otherwise clean-lined backgrounds to create an interesting juxtaposition of materials. I tend to lean a little bit more contemporary, but I find that when you bring in these natural forms, you can have a contemporary home that still feels very warm and inviting.

6 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFrom the perspective of 2018, its easy to look back at homes from the early 1990s and criticize everyone involved for everything. Weak accents, strange layouts, questionable coloring the list can go on and on. So its nice when a homeowner recognizes that a talented interior designer can turn an old soul into a new model. The owner of this 2,068-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home in Bonita Bay had worked with Minka McDonald of Jinx McDonald Interior Designs on another home and retained her and her associate, Beth WalkerSenton, to freshen the place up a bit. However, it didnt take long for everyone to realize that magic could happen if they could go beyond a few cosmetic enhancements. All I could say was, Wow, how interesting, Ms. McDonald recalls about the first time she entered the abode. It struck me as a strange s house. I couldnt put my finger on it; it seemed the architect was trying to be modern. A very odd, chunky soffit went all the way around the foyer and living space. The little kitchen was rather dark and depressing, finished off in a Zoloft-prescribing brown/ beige. The entire space was segmented and tight. The homeowner first thought an upgrade on all the finishes would be enough, but he was willing to try something more. Ms. McDonald added a woodlook tile floor and new two-tone cabinetry by Fusion Industries in the kitchen. When we started picking the materials, the homeowner got a little more excited, the designer says. So we said, Lets take these two walls down separating the kitchen from the dining room and living area. That was huge As the process continued, he allowed us to do more and more. She then asked if they could take down the awful soffit, which would straighten up the walls. Once we cleaned that up, it looked so much more current, she says. They also straightened the circular entry so that its now one big, light and open space. In the kitchen, they installed quartz countertops that waterfall down the sides. And they put a dry bar off the dining room. In the great room, a new drapery panel emphasizes the dramatic ceiling height, and new beams across the ceiling make room for LED lighting that brightens the area. They also removed a broom closet and made some other adjustments and were able to enlarge both the master bath and a guest bath. Outdoors, the pool area got new travertine, coping and accent tile for a fresh look all around. Anyone walking into the home now would be hard-pressed to think its anything other than new construction. And beautifully done at that.

Everything from the master bath, below, to the foyer, below right, was reimagined and redesigned in a way that gives the impression of added space.

10 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COVER STORYDIANA TODOROVA / COURTESY PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAs the vice president of sales and marketing at Kalea Bay, the luxury waterfront condominiums in North Naples (built by the team responsible for Moraya Bay, Grand Preserve at The Dunes, Regatta, and The Vanderbilt), Inga Wilson Lodge knows a few things about design, quality and discerning customers. So when she and her husband, Kristian Lodge, decided to build their first home together, you can imagine she came to the project with a lot of ideas and inspiration. Fortunately or unfortunately, Im that person who knows a little too much but not enough, she says with a laugh. I took bits of different homes that we liked and went to an architect and engineer to put it together. I joke all the time that this is the house that Pintrest and Houzz built. The couple then took their plan to Steven Sunquist of Naples Luxury Builders. The collaborations culminated in a California beach-inspired three-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom gem near Vanderbilt Beach (with 3,300 square feet under air and a total of 6,600 square feet). We wanted an open floor plan that would flow the way we know we live our lives, Mrs. Lodge, a native of Toronto, says. We took a long time to make sure our wish list would be able to be incorporated knowing that we never plan to leave. I joke that our next move is to the nursing home. That move should be a long way off. Mrs. Lodge appreciates that her work at Kalea Bay exposes her to some of the best interior designers, contractors and subcontractors With a discernible California beach house vibe, this new three-story, canalfront home near Vanderbilt Beach is a testament to open spaces and cool, contemporary lines. In the great room, at top, birch-toned porcelain tile from Peronda in 8-foot-long planks is a durable substitute for hardwood flooring. On the exterior, at left, dark charcoal accents and roofing contrast with the light, neutral color of the main structure. GOING GOING WITH WITH THE THEEasy-going collaborations lead to a fabulous first home for couple flow flow
in the business. So Im able to find out about the latest and newest materials and trends, she says. For example, our kitchen counter is something no one has used here and only one company (Artistone) was able to provide. The surface, called Neolith, is a largeslab porcelain tile that looks like marble for a fraction of the price. It can be bookmatched perfectly without the seams youd be forced to have with a natural product. It dazzles so much in the kitchen (check out the surface of the 11-foot island) that the couple decided to use the same surface on a feature wall in the living room and also in the master bath. In the living room, Neolith provides a powerful base for a linear fireplace and flat-screen television. Antique mirrors enhance contrasting shelving inset on either side. The picture-perfect room opens onto a second-floor outdoor living space overlooking the pool and canal. The kitchen is chef grade with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and uses a driftwood-toned wood for the island base as well as for accent framing around the 72-inch refrigerator/freezer and the adjoining dry bar. All of this is set above stunning, wideplank flooring that looks like birch but is actually Peronda porcelain tiles. Thats pretty unique, the builder, Mr. Sunquist, says about the 8-foot-long tiles. We also used all linear vents in the ceilings and concealed them with drywall up in the areas of the trays. Of course, waterfront living in Southwest Florida means you want to take full advantage of outdoor spaces, so the Lodges incorporated two sundecks into their home: one off the main living area and one off the third-floor master suite, both affording terrific views down the canal. In the tranquil master suite, a lovely mix of soothing grays and taupes extends into the en suite with its standalone soaking tub and a chandelier of smoked glass. It feels like youre in a spa, says Mrs. Lodge. For Mr. Lodge who happens to be the son of John Lodge of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band The Moody Blues (and who just bought a place in Kalea Bay) the best part of the home might be outside. Hes a big boater, Mr. Sunquist says of the younger Mr. Lodge. He built the dock before construction on the home had even begun. We ran temporary power to it so he could use his boat while we built the house. Makes sense to us. I have to say we interviewed probably seven or eight builders, says Mrs. Lodge. And when people ask if wed ever build again, I say absolutely, we would as long as we had Steven (Sunquist). Hes such a stand-up guy. Not a lot of builders would have gone along with how we were designing. We didnt give him the full plans from the get-go. I would hand him a picture and say, I want you to do this. He was fantastic that way going with the flow and yet keeping in mind our budget. He was instrumental in keeping us on track. In the end, the home turned out just as the Lodges had hoped: a welcoming combination of taste, style and quality that will be loved and lived in for many years to come. I wouldnt change a thing, says Mrs. Lodge.

12 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALK BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf youve ever needed to buy drapes or have furniture recoverd, you know it can be mind-numbingly expensive. The fabric alone can make your eyes water. Fabrics N Trim can take the coronary concerns out of shopping for fabrics thanks to a surprisingly simple pricing structure: Everything is either $7 or $14 per yard. Nope. That is not a typo. The store sells mostly decorative fabric for draperies and upholstery, including outdoor pieces (if youve ever priced Sunbrella fabrics, you know finding it for $14 is no small feat). And this is first quality fabric, no seconds here. Its all overstock or close out. Mills that handle well-known labels such as Robert Allen, Duralee and Waverly want them out the door quickly, and the volume Fabrics N Trim buys (30-50 rolls at a time) equates to amazing prices. The business also sells a lot of sheers (the majority of which are $7 a yard which, because sheers come in at 118 inches wide instead of the normal 54 inches wide, is more like $3.50 a yard). Owner Julie Roberts Orgren took over the business 13 years ago from her father, Ken Roberts. He opened the store 20 years ago this August after he retired from owning a similar business over in Miami. For her part, Julie attended Florida State University majoring in business and textiles, so her path was fairly clear although she moved to San Francisco after college to work retail for the likes of Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Loro Piana. What I do now is so different from the price points of a $2,000 blouse, Mrs. Orgren says. But its all in the same field and same network. When Dad finally decided he wanted to retire for the second time, I was thrilled to come back. I stepped right into it. I was under his wing for about 60 days when he said, Youve got this, Jules. Im going to go to the house and read a book. You can tell how dedicated Mrs. Orgren is by the fact that she even named her dog Sunbrella. The store, which is on the small side at 1,560 square feet, is stacked with various rolls of fabric (550 different rolls on average) and an enormous selection of decorative trim (cording, bullion, tacking, etc.). Mrs. Orgrens associate, Susie Rettig, is a savant at measuring and knowing just how much fabric is needed, no matter the complexity of the project. She has a penchant for paisley, but you shouldnt hold that against her. Perhaps the best part of the establishment is that its not just a fabric and trim store. They can do the upholstery as well, and normally within 10-15 days (special orders notwithstanding) even during season. Theyll even come to your home and give you a free estimate. Texting works really well, says Mrs. Orgren. Everyone in Collier County who has a couch seems to have my cell phone number which is great. Sometimes people never even come into the store. They send me pictures and a text: These are my two chairs. How many yards do I need? Ill send them pictures of fabrics. Ive never met them. They give me a credit card number and the chairs are back in their house in a week or two. From something as small as a pillow to an entire house and everything in between, the store keeps Naples looking great. And for prices that make you look forward to reupholstering.
